Trackmen Will

In Dual Meet
Recurrence Of Old Injury
At Penn Relays Forces
Ward To Sidelines
Tolan May Compete
Distances Of Track Events
Made Shorter To Insure
Keen Competition
A crowd of close to 2,500 people,
track fans and persons who never
saw a track meet but who will be out
to make a personal gesture, are ex-
pected to see the track team of the
University of Michigan and Michigan
State Normal unite in an exhibition
meet for the benefit of Neree Alix,
the diminutive Michigan star whose
leg was broken as Michigan opened
its outdoor season against California
two weeks ago.
The pick of the two squads has
been entered, with one major ex-
ception, Willis Ward of the Michigan
squad, who was injured in the Penns
Relays last Saturday. After winning
the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.5
seconds, one-tenth second faster than
the Olympic time of George Saling
in 1932, Ward suffered what is
thought to be a pulled muscle in his
leg was leading the first heat of the
100-meter dash.
Injury Not Serious
Ward's injury is a recurrence of the
trouble which he met in the Confer-
ence meet last year although far
less serious and both he and trainer
Ray Roberts look for it to be well
within a week. Ward's injury, be-
sides displacing him in the dash, also
forced him to withdraw from the
broad jump, and although he made
his jump at 6 feet, 2 inches forced
him out of the high jump at 6 feet,
3 inches, as he tied for third.
Although Ward will not be entered
in his five events, his place will be
well taken by Eddie Tolan, the former
Michigan star who is just returned
from winning the world's professional
sprint championship in Australia.
Tolan is expected to make an exhi
bition sprint appearance.
Tickets for the benefit meet have
gone fast, according to the reports of
the freshman and Varsity squad
members who are handling the sales,
with Paul Gorman, junior half-miler,
leading with.sales above the hundred
Distances Scaled Down
The meet, which will not be scored,
will present one of the fastest pro-
grams of the year. All track events
above the hundred have been scaled
down to insure the greatest speed
and maximum competition.
Th s entries of both teams will
include all Michigan Normal squad,
including Bill Zepp at a mile and one-
half, Harold Baker in the 350-yard
event, Ray Lowry, a former Normal
vaulting star, who holds the Yost
Field House record in the event,
and Bowman Hall.
Two relay races will be run at 440-
yards with two Michigan teams run-
ning against each other and a Normal
team and other between Michigan
freshman and Varsity teams.
Today's meet will open the Mich-
igan outdoor competition at home,
and will be a curtain-raiser for the
opening of the outdoor Conference
season with Minnesota here Saturday.
Today's meet will begin at 4:05 p.m.
Tigers Hit Stride
With 18-0 Victory
ST. LOUIS, April 29 - The Detroit

Tigers hit their old stride today when
they smothered the St. Louis Browns
in a slugfest 18-0. Detroit amassed
15 hits off three pitchers and the
Browns got seven off Tommy Bridges.
The Bengals ran up six hits inter-
mittently through the first seven
innings that blasted in nine runs in
the big eighth. Greenberg and Gos-
lin hit homers in the eighth, Green-
berg's coming with the bases loaded.

is notoriously true that a clean-up
hitter usually fails to clean up.
Oliver's runs-driven-in-record tends
to show that it is merely a matter of
getting hits at the right time. Four
of his five safeties have been good
for runs, six in number. His first
hit in a Conference game was a triple
against Ohio State which drove in
two runs, finishing off a seven-run
rally in the fifth. Against North-
western he got a single with bases
loaded, driving in two more. And
against Michigan Normal last Friday,
two of three singles were good for two
runs, a long fly scored another, and a
drive to third base enabled Williams
to score while Oliver was safe on a
fielder's choice.
Coaches and managers like the ball
player who drives in the runs, no mat-
ter if he has a batting average of
.200. Bucky Harris in his first year
as manager at Detroit refused to
trade Marty McManus, third base-
man, for a man who was a better hit-
ter, simply because the records showed
that McManus had batted in more
runs. Coach Ray Fisher has ex-
pressed himself as pleased with the
way Oliver has been coming through
at the clean-up position lately, and it
appears as though he will remain
there unless the unforseen happens.
