Owens-Ward Duel Will
Outstanding Feature
Saturday's Contest


A repetition of the sensational
Michigan-Ohio State indoor meet'
here in March is promised Saturday
in the dual meeting between the two
teams on Ferry Field. Besides the
featured duel between Willis Ward'
and the Buckeyes' Jesse Owens, keen
competition is expected in every track
event, and in the jumps.
The Buckeyes have reorganized
since their 62-32 trimming indoors,
with Charles Beetham, a sophomore
middle distance star, forming a nu-
cleus in the events above which Owens
cares for. Beetham last week won
the half mile from Notre Dame in
the Buckeyes' opening meet outdoors
in 1:57.5, ran anchor on the winning
relay team and was edged out of a
place in the quarter.
Half To Be Dual
Running in the half against Paul
Gorman, Howard Davidson and Frank
Aikens, Beetham is expected to fur-
nish the best of the pre-Conference
meet duals in that event. In the
quarter Beetham, with Ed Gazdick
and Bob Bleckle, will meet Stan Bir-
leson and Harvey Patton. Patton
last Saturday did :49.5 as Beetham
was edged out of the money in :49.8.
Another featured race is expected
in the mile in which Don Renda will
return to face Captain Harvey Smith,
who is slowly rounding into peak
condition, Clayton Brelsford, and Paul
Pinkerton. Renda did 4:25.7 against
the Irish Saturday, slightly slower
than Brelsford's winning time against
Osgood Meets Rivals
In the hurdles events Bob Osgood
ivill be renewing a six-year rivalry
with Ken Seitz which has extended
through four years of high school
competition. For three years Seitz
was a consistent winner over Osgood
until their senior year when Osgood
emerged to win in the highs. Seitz
has a best mark of :15.4 in the highs
in which Osgood is expected to break
15 seconds, and of :24.6 in the lows, a
mark which Michigan's sophomore
ace has already broken.
Moreau Hunt, showing sensational
improvement in two successive meets,
will also be expected to extend the
Although George Neal and John
Schwartz are expected to take two
places in the shot put for the Buck-
eyes, neither have shown sufficient
form to give them places in the two
other field events. The Buckeye en-
tries finished behind wins by Irish
in the javelin at 174 feet and in the
discus at 130 feet.

Wonder Just What Eddie Lowrey t
Does when all the ice is gone?1
When the fields are fair and floweryi
Does he sit and smoke and yawn? 1
Does he trek to North Alaskaa
Or. to Greenland's icy bays?
Or does he just sit and bask awhile
Beneath the sun's hot rays?
Kipke has a banquet season,
Hoyt has. football in the fall,'
Is there any earthly reason
Why Eddie has no work at all?
Rather than just keep him waiting,
Give him something to intrigue.
Get a team for roller skating,
Organize a Big Ten League!
Then we'll keep o1' Eddie busy,
And the sun won't get him dizzy.
Coach Eddie Lowrey, so they say,
Is a builder on Greenland Bay.
It is he who builds the igloos,

For the wily Eskimoos.

He can whip a gurgling

He can pick young hockeyors

He is a contractor.
Benefit Meet Nets Alix
$330; Star Doing Nicely
Neree Alix, Michigan's two-
mile star who is in the University
of California infirmary recover-
ing from a compound leg fracture
incurred when Michigan met the
Bears in a track meet last month,
will receive about $330 as the re-
sult of the benefit track meet held
last week between the Varsity
squad and Michigan State Normal.
Business Manager Harry Tillot-
son yesterday reported that $322
had been turned in, representing
donations as well as proceeds from
the meet, which will be turned over
to- Alix for his own use, and that
several blocks of tickets remained
Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, direc-
tor of the Michigan Health Serv-
ice said yesterday that he was in
receipt of a letter from Dr. John
Legge, director of the health serv-
ice at California and that Alix was
"doing very nicely,"

Chicago threw a bomb into Confer-
ence baseball predictions yesterday
by taking first place in the stand-
ings away from the Illini with a sur-
prising 7-4 victory over the Illinois
nine at Champaign. The Maroons
now have a record of three wins
and one defeat.
With a 1-0 victory over Michigan
Saturday completing the hardest half
of the University of Illinois nine's
schedule, the Orange and Blue should
have easy sailing to its second Big
Ten title.
Illinois, Michigan and Ohio State
are the strongest teams in the Con-
ference this year. Having already
disposed of the Buckeyes twice, being
deposed by them in a third game for
their first defeat, the Illini have only
one difficult contest remaining, the
return Michigan game at Champaign,
May 18, and the Conference title may
well hang in the balance if the Wol-
verines down Ohio State twice this
week end.
Two games with Northwestern and
single encounters with Purdue and
Chicago, the three weakest clubs in
the league, are left on Coach Roet-
tger's list.- With sufficient days of
rest interspersed between games to
allow Hale Swanson to pitch them all,
neither of this trio should come close
to the Illini.
Michigan, Ohio State Next
Michigan and Ohio State, panting
along in the wake of the speeding
Illinois nine, glean what satisfaction
they can from the consoling words
of Wally Stewart, Northwestern's
coach. When the Wildcats were here
three weeks ago to take a 10-4 drub-
bing from Michigan he confidently
stated that his club would take the
Indians' scalp in one of their two
games. The Wolverines and Buckeyes
are hoping he has more up his sleeve
than a hunch.
Rivals Battle Here
Michigan and Ohio State will tear
at each other's throats in a two-game
series here this week-end, that will
eliminate one and possibly both
teams as serious titular contenders.
Should they split, both teams will
have three defeats which is one more
than Illinois is likely to suffer. If
either team sweeps the series, it will
be in a position to tie the Illini for
the championship, pending another
defeat of the Indians.
Minnesota's Gophers, considered a
pre-season possibility for rthe title,
could do no better than split a double-
header with Northwestern Saturday,
in their opener, winning the first
game 3 to 1, then losing by the same
score. Minnesota will take on the
ninth-place Wisconsin Badgers at
Minneapolis this Saturday.
By breaking even in a twin bill with
Wisconsin last Saturday, 3 to 1 and 1
to 3, Iowa maintained its .500 per-
centage to go into a four-way tie
with Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio
State for third place.

The 1935 winner of the Chicago
Alumni award, who is to be named
tonight, will be the eleventh man in
what is fast becoming a lengthy and
distinguished group of grid stars, se-
lected in their freshman year's be-
cause of their outstanding "improve-
ment, attitude, attendance, and future
promise as Varsity material."
Because those players who run the
ball are given a greater chance to gain
the spotlight, five winners have been
backfield men and three ends. This
year the leading candidates fill these
same positions.
The first to be honored was Ray
Baer. He proved a worthy starter
being chosen as All-Conference guard
and was deprived of a place on the
All-American squad only because two
other Wolverines, Benny Friedman
and Benny Oosterbaan, were chosen
for the mythical eleven, that year.
f At the present time Baer is turning
out some fine prep school players
at Manual High of Louisville.
Rich Coaching Denison
George Rich, the 1926 selection,
proved a good, dependable captain
and fullback, although he played
half his first year, and shortly after
his graduation from the Law School,
was appointed head coach at Deni-
son College.
Michigan was robbed of one of the
brightest prospects that has come
here in recent years when LaVerne
Taylor, the winner in 1927, suffered
a broken back in the Wisconsin game
of his first year of Varsity competi-
tion after he had scored the first
touchdown ever made in the Stadium
in the opening game against Mich-
igan State. After slow recovery, Tay-
lor returned to his alma mater, Ann
Arbor High, where he coached until
last year when he became mentor at
a Hammond, Ind., school.
Halfbacks caught the coaches fancy
the next two years with Danny
Holmes chosen in 1928 and Roy Hud-
I sin in 1929. The latter proved a con-
sistently good back, being chosen cap-
tam in his senior year when Mich-
igan won the Conference title.
Estil Tessmer followed Hudson, but
injuries and an excess of stars kept
him from being a starter.
Everhardus Outstanding
In 1931 the outstanding player of
the ten, Herman Everhardus won the
trophy. During his junior and senioi
years, the Wolverines won the Na-
tional title with Herm leading the
Big Ten scorers in 1933 and being
chosen as a member of the All-
American squad.
In the last three years Gerald Ford
t Michael Maleshevich (now known as
Mike Savage), and Matt Patanelli
Freshman Nine Defeats
Varsity Reserves, 8-4
Showing definite improvement over
their early season form, the freshman
baseball squad yesterday avenged a
previous defeat at the hands of the
Reserves by the score of 8-4. Lefty
Harnden and Herman Fishman

Melzer, Berger Larson, and Lefty
Settle were on the mound for the Re-

have been picked by the board of
football strategy. Ford was kept in
the shadows for two seasons by the
great Chuck Bernard and then whenS
he finally was taken off the bench,
a poor team obscured him.
Savage and Patanelli, the present
Varsity ends, look to be one of the
best pair in the country with a good
chance to make the Alumni trophy an
even more highly valued prize.

Since weather in Puerto Rico is
not like what we have here, even in
the spring, tennis is one of the most
generally played and important games
on any of the Island sports sched-
ules, according to Johnny Rodriguez,
one of Coach Johnstone's most prom-
ising luminaries on the tennis squad
and holder of various Puerto Rican
net titles.
The only school to have a tennis
team is the University of Puerto Rico,
where Johnny played his freshman
year. Most of the organized team
playing is done in private clubs. Few
women play, and according to Mr.
Rodriguez's insinuations, those who
do are not too good.
Johnny himself is a tennis star
more or less by accident. He broke
his leg when he was about 15 years
old, and when he recovered, he
thought he'd take up tennis on the
assumption that it was easier than
most anything else he could do. After
that, he says, "It got to be a fever."
Beat A Roosevelt
In his first tournament match,
Johnny drew young Teddy Roosevelt
as an opponent, and was so scaredl
he "saw spots all around the ball."
He dropped the first set, but after
that decided that after all a Roose-
velt was only a politician, and took
the next two sets, winning the match.
Having set himself to the art of be-
coming a tennis player, the young
Puerto Rican did not stop part way.
Before hie came up here he had won
his club title, and the crown for
his class in the southern part of the
Island. Then, he says, he decided
that the University of Puerto Rico
was too good for him (Which state-
ment he refuses to explain) and came
up here in 1932.
Took Up Wrestling
As a freshman on the campus, Rod-
riguez went out for- wrestling as more

his present teammates Bob Ander-
son, the No. 1 player of the Varsity,
Miller Sherwood, and Jarvis Dean.
"Of course, those were lucky days,"
he averred in a reassuring tone.
For all the nonchalance of his atti-
tude, Rodriguez is one of the most
conscientious and hard-working of
the tennis players. His debut in Con-
ference net circles last week-end was
marked by a victory over his oppo-
nent, Duhl of Chicago, which he won
in straight sets, 7-5, 6-0.
He and Milton Eskowitz accounted
for the only doubles victory over Chi-
cago, which they took from Mertz,
No. 2 Maroon player, and Duhl, again
in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3. And Coach
Johnstone, in a week in which he
has plenty to be annoyed about, says
of Johnny, "I'm proud of that boy.
He did very well, and deserves credit
for a straight set victory in his first
match play."
