Cold In PracticeI
A modified guarantee that Mich-
igan's baseball team will meet Illinois
at 2:45 p.m. today on the Ferry Field
diamond was made yesteriday by
Coach Ray Fisher. If it doesn't rain
during game time and if the diamond
is in passable shape, the game will be
played, no matter if the temperature
hovers around the 40-degree mark,
To add to the mentor's worries, Art
Patchin, veteran hurler, reported a
sore arm yesterday. It appears that
Patchin caught cold in his pitching
arm last Wednesday when he worked
in thebox during a practice game.
The day was a fairly cold one, as
spring days go, the contest with Hills-
dale having been called off for the
second time. The result of the work-
out was felt immediately afterward
by Patchin, his arm stiffening at the
elbow. It is expected that treatments
with a private physician will find
him in good shape again in a few days.
Bgtger Larson has survived the cold
without mishap and will fill the pitch-
ing assignment against the Illini in an
attempt to put Michigan in first place
in the Big Ten with a win. Hale
Swanson, who has hurled in four of
the five Illinois Conference games
this season, winning three and losing
on'e, will be on the mound for the
visitors. Swanson has allowed an
average of a little more than five
hits a game, has one shut-out to his
credit, and has been driven from the
box once in four starts. Ohio State,
a team which Berger Larson let down
with two hits and no runs, lost to
Swanson in the first game between
the Buckeyes and the Illini, but came
back in the second meeting to get
seven hits in four innings off the Illi-
nois ace, driving him to the showers.
Michigan's lineup will remain the
same for today's game, with the ex-
ception that Joe Lerner may start
in place of Vic Heyliger in right field.
Fisher was not able to decide yester-
day whom it would be.
Illinois has a harder hitting outfit
than the Wolverines, according to
the batting averages. While one man,
Heyliger, is batting above .300 for
Michigan in Big Ten games, Illinois
has three. Capt. Ben Lewis, be-
sides being a good fielder at third,
leads his mates with a .450 average.
Murray Franklin, a newcomer at
second base, is batting .400, and
RednDuffner, first sacker, an even

Michigan's track team, Big Ten in-+

for the outdoor crown this afternoon
on Ferry Field meeting Minnesota in
the Wolverines' first Conference dual
meet outdoors and their first home
showing. The meet will begin at 2
In case of continued inclement
weather, all field events except the
javelin and discus will be moved in-i
doors. There is also a possibility
that the running events, longer than
the 220 yard dash, will also be on the
track in Yost Field House.
Entire Squad To Compete
Coach Chuck Hoyt has named his
entire squad to compete in the meet,
and the Gophers are expected to of-
fer but little resistance to the strong
Michigan team. A 12-man squad
swamped Minnesota in a dual meet
indoors during the winter.
Willis Ward, suffering from a leg
injury incurred last week at the Penn
Relays, will not run, taking no
chances on aggravating the injury.
The Gophers will present their cus-
tomary strength in the weight events,
but are not expected to offer ev-
tended competition in the track
events with the exception of the two-
mile, two-mile races, and possibly the
hundred yard dash.
In the mile and two-mile Minneso-
ta will bring Wayne Slocum, who has
done 4:28 in the mile and the two-
mile in 9:26. Slocum placed second
in the Conference two-mile event in-
Hichigan Nines Hold 13-j
Game Edge Over Illini
Michigan's baseball rivalry with
Illinois, which is cf longes'stand-
ing and more intense than any
other in the Conference, began in
1892, then the barehanded, em-
oryo stages of the diamond sports
when the Wolverines handed the
lini an 18-0 shellacking.
Since then the two teams haveI
met upon 70 occasions, with Mich-
igan nines holding a large margin
of victories over their arch rivals.
Michigan has won 41 times, Illi-
nois 28. while one contest resulted
in a 6-6 tie, in 1895. The largest
score rolled up by one team camei
about in 1893, Michigan winning
20 to 3. Mere reently, 1925, the
Wolverines drubbed Illinois 19-5.
During Coach Ray Fisher's re-
gime as the Maize and Blue
coach, which began in 1921, Mich-
igan has achieved 13 triumps over
Illinois, while losing 12..
Over the stretch of 70 gaines,
Michigan hastamassed a total of
391 runs while Orange and Blue
runners have crossed home plate

CHICAGO, May 3 --(P)- The Uni-

tennis champion, defeated Michigan,
the 1934 runner-up, 6 to 3, today in
a dual meet held in the Maroon field
The event was forced indoors be-
cause of weather conditions.
Trevor Weiss, Chicago captain,
made short work of Seymour Siegel,
Michigan's captain, who was runner-
up in the Big Ten singles tourney last
year, setting him down, 6-1, 6-1, in
the number one singles test.
Howie Kahn and John Rodriguez
were the only Wolverines who were
able to win in the six singles matches

LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 3-(Al)-
Having demonstrated its capacity to
survive fire or flood, good times or
bad, America's most spectacular
horse race will be run off tomorrow
on the storm-tossed crest of a wave
of carnival enthusiasm.
A record outpouring of 70,000 spec-
tators was anticipated for the sixty-
first Kentucky Derby at picturesque
The famous track was hock-deep
in mud today after a series of terri-
fic thunder storms but it escaped
damage from the wind and lightning
which left a trail of wreckage else-
where in the vicinity. Clearing skies
today forecast the likelihood of a
good track, even if a.trifle heavy, by
Derby post time, approximately 5:45
p.m., Eastern Standard.
Twenty-two three-year-olds, in-
cluding the crack filly Nellie Flag, co-
favorite for the big race with Corneli-
us Vanderbilt Whitney's colt, Today,
have been named for the mile and a
quarter. Indications point to a wide
open stretch battle and one of the
closest finishes in years.
With $40,000 added, the Derby will
have a gross value of $56,550, if all
entries go to the post, and be worth
$46.125 net to the winner. The expec-

Slocum Is Gopher Ace
Should Slocum enter both events
however, he will not be expected to
appear as a certain first-place win-
ner in either. Captain Harvey Smith,
Clayton Brelsford, and Paul Pinker-
ton, converted to the mile for this
meet from the two-mile, will be ex-
pected to best the Gopher ace in the
shorter event. In the longer run,
Slocum will face serious competition
from Walter Stone, who has displayed
distinct improvement in the succeed-
ing meets, particularly if Slocum is
entered in the mile run, which comes
first on the program of events.
Bill Freimuth, who won the Con-
ference shot put title indoors and
placed fifth in last year's outdoor
meet, will be practically conceded the
shot put, despite an injured back,
on the basis of his best throw of 49
feet, 10%/2 inches. He has also thrown
the discus better than 144 feet.
Dominic Krewzowski is another con-
sistent shot putter, at about 45 feet.
In the jump events Bob Larson
will carry the Gopher strength. He
is a consistent six-foot high jumper.
Snowed Out Of
Eight Big Ten baseball teams are
scheduled to swing into action to-
day, weather permitting, with the
Michigan-Illinois struggle for first
place holding the limelight.
Minnesota, opening its league sea-
son two weeks later than the other
Conference nines, was snowed out at
Evanston yesterday and will meet
Northwestern in a double bill today.
The Gophers have six straight prac-
tice games under their belt and are
favored to trim the Wildcats who
have already dropped two Conference
tilts while winning one.
Cold weather cancelled the Wiscon-
sin-Iowa game at Iowa City yester-
day, and the two teams are booked
to tangle in a double header today.
Neither team appears to rate as a
titular contender, Wisconsin having
met defeat twice by Illinois, with the
Hawkeyes possessing an average of
one victory and one defeat.
Indiana, hold fourth place in the
Big Ten standings, meets the Maroons
at Chicago. Indiana, with Ed Hosler
in the box should be too strong for
the weak Chicago nine. The Hoosiers
took two games from Purdue, two
weeks ago, but lost to Ohio State twice
last week. Chicago split a two-game
series with Purdue last Saturday.
The first inklings of what Mich-
igan will do on the gridiron next fall
will be offered Wolverine grid fans
when Coach Harry Kipke leads his
spring football squad in the Stadium
at 4:15 this afternoon for the annual
spring game between the Blues and

The majority of the players on each
team are freshmen who are expected'
to play an important part in the
Wolverine grid program next' fall,
and their performances this after-
noon will be watched closely as an
indication of 1935 potentialities
The regular Stadium amplifying'
system will be in action this after-
noon for the convenience of specta-
tors with a play by play account of

The starting lineups for both teams
are as follows:

play against Bob Coe and Dick
Brindle if the same pairings are used
by Coach Harold G. Olson that he
employed against the Hoosiers last
week. Dana Seeley will play the
single individual match of the morn-
ing, and if the above pairings are
retained by Coach Olson, will battle
Ken Landis of Ohio State. The morn-
ing play will begin at 9 a.m.
The five individual matches of the
afternoon will find Fischer, Kocsis,
Woody Malloy, Carrol Sweet, and
Larry David swinging into action

just before the commencement of
The singles matches will tee-off at
2 p.m. and a large gallery is expected
to follow the golfers. Indiana gave
the Bucks comparatively little trouble
in their Big Ten opener when they
finished up on the short end of a
13-5 score. Loveberry had the low
medal score of the day with a 75, and
St. John and Coe had 80's. Brindle
had an 82. Landis did not play in-

Omaha, On The Nose!
WVHAT WITH MOTHER NATURE slamming trees around, knocking down
telephone poles, deluging the countryside, and darkening entire cities
in the Louisville, Ky., area, it might seem plenty hard to go about the annual
business of picking the Kentucky Derby winner. But whether the Churchill
Downs oval is knee deep in mud or not, this column is going right out to the
extreme end of the mythical limb and make its choice. Our choice is a SURE
thing, don't you forget it!
** *: *; * *
NELLIE FLAG has worked sensationally. She is a great filly and undoubt-
edly is the classiest of her sex to go to the post since Regret won the
Derby in 1915. We don't pick her. Boxthorn, the Col. E. R. Bradley entry,
has worked well lately, and is thought to have potentialities as a route run-
ner. Don't like him. Today, the C. V. Whitney flash that ran off with the
Wood Memorial Stakes, will be the favorite of Old Man Public - probably.
This isn't our hide, either. Nor do we select Commonwealth, Mrs. Walter M.
Jeffors flash, nor Roman Soldier, the ex-plater who won the Texas Derby,
nor any of the others, except Omaha, the William Woodward hard-luck hide
which won only one race last year and which has crashed through only once
so far this year. His 1935 win was against somewhat cheaper company
(Allen Z., Thorson, et. al.) it must be admitted, too. Nevertheless, this
splendid distancc-running son of Gallant Fox, which incidentally used to
whip Today's papa, Whichone, with regularity, has repeatedly come from far
back to grab off second money when it was thought that he would be
very far from the leaders.
TO THOSE who are "in the know" about the horses, that should explain
our point sufficiently. At distances of one mile, one mile and 70 yards,'
and one mile and a sixteenth, Omaha is just beginning to work up a
sweat. The Kentucky Derby distance of a mile and a quarter, we
believe, should be just the thing this colt Omaha has been prospecting about
for. When Psychic Bid, Nellie Flag, Today, and the others are beginning
to wonder (between laborious breaths) if the race will never be over, and
if that finish line will never appear, Omaha is going to be saying "Brrr,
that first mile was rather chilly . . . NOW! !" And then we expect him to
start stepping past the leaders the way he did in the Wood Memorial.
IN THAT WOOD MEMORIAL Omaha never reached the front, held rather
securely as the field thundered over the finish line, by Today, but Omaha
was traveling with express train speed and was eating up ground. Plat Eye
held the place only by a nose. In another sixteenth it is very probable that
Omaha would have been the winner. So ... we're picking Omaha ... but
the best can always run last, you know, and Omaha may do just that. We
hope not. For second and third, this column is selecting Plat Eye,. which
was lumbering under top weight in the Wood Memorial and which won the
Chesapeake Stakes, and the speedy Miss, Nellie Flag. As for the rest, poof!
