Wolverine Netters


Illinois Upset
Revives Hopes
Of Varsity Nine
Larson To Oppose PetersI
In Opener Of Ohio State
Series Friday
Because the University of Chicago
baseball team upset Illinois 7 to 4
Tuesday to throw the Big Ten race
into a free-for-all, the Ohio State-
Michigan two-game series opening on
Ferry Field tomorrow assumes an all-
important aspect.
Theoretically, every Conference
nine except Purdue now has a mathe-
matical chance for the title, but ac-1
cording to relative strength and talent}
among Big Ten nines, the race will
simmer down to a three-way fight be-
tween Michigan, Ohio State and Illi-
With Michigan's hopes again re-
vived after sinking to a low ebb when
the Illini squeezed through with a
1-0 decision last Saturday, the Maize!
and Blue can assume the dominating
position in the standings by trimming
the Buckeyes in both games.
Friday's game may develop into an-
other sterling pitcher's duel if Peter's
who holds a one-hit victory over
Michigan, can turn in another mas-
terpiece, for Berger Larson, who
tamed the Indians from Illinois, and
beat the hard-hitting Bucks at Ohio
State, allowing them only two hits,
will oppose the confident Ohio State
star on the mound.
Michigan's "hitters" are very desir-
ous of knocking Peters out of the
box, for in their last meeting, the
Ohio State sophomore hurler inti-
mated that he was wholly confident of
repeating his triumph at Ann Arbor.
Despite the fact that the Maize and
Blue boys were credited with only one
hit off Peters, they hit him fairlyj
hard being robbed of several hits by
spectacular fielding, and feel sure that
the law of averages will catch up
with Peters tomorrow.
Glenn Cunningham, as a miler
holds four records in the one-mile
run. They are 4:06.8 for the Amer-
ican and World championships and
4:06.7 for the Western and Collegiate
record. The lower time has not been
officially recognized by the Interna-
tional Federation.

WE NOTED WITH gratification
yesterday that work has been
started on the press box for track
meets at Ferry Field. The hoist and
piles of lumber look business-like but
the partially-elated scribes are won-
dering now how long it will take be-
fore the structure is ready for use.
We have a sneaking suspicion that
Mr. Yost had already made up his
mind to build the crow's nest before
we wrote that column about it, so
are not taking too much credit in the
IT IS A REMARKABLE fact that in
the ten years the Chicago Alumni
Trophy has been awarded it has
never gone to a man who later made
the All-American. The men have
become outstanding players, even
stars during their Varsity careers, but
never has one achieved the mythical
hail of fame.
The 1931 frosh are a good example.
Out of one of the most powerful
yearling aggregations ever assembled
here, the coaches selected Herm Ever-
hardus for the trophy. Everhardus
became a great back, one of the finest
running halfbacks Michigan has had
in recent years. However, he missed
All-American ranking.
Instead that honor went to two of
his teammates who didn't show much
in their freshman year, Chuck Ber-
nard and Whitey Wistert.
In another instance Zit Tessmer, a
good, mechanical quarterback who
never did anything exceptional, won
the award, although Harry Newman
was a member-of the freshman squad.
There is no telling, of course, what
Matt Patanelli, winner last year, may
do before he hangs up his moleskins
at the end of the 1936 season. His
work last year certainly brands him
as potential All-American material if
he can tie up with a winning Mich-
igan football team in the next year
or two.
Another end, LaVerne Taylor,
might have been the man to break
the string, but the jinx got him. Tay-
lor, a local high school product, was
boomed by old settlers in the fall of
'27 to take his place with Ann Arbor's
three other All-Americans. Off with
a bang, he started in the opening
game, but a month later had ended
his college athletic career due to a'
fractured vertebrae.
Today Bob Cooper looks like the
sweetest back to tote a Michigan pig-!
skin in some time. The question
though is who will be Michigan's All-
American in 1937? Smithers, Ritchie,
Dutkowski, Marzonie; Ghesquiere.
Schroeder or a dozen others may be
the ones to reach the pinnacle. '

Michigan's tennis team, with a
lineup as yet uncertain, will play host
to Northwestern's netters in their
first home Conference battle at 3
p.m. today on the Ferry Field courts.
It is the first of a three-day meet,
which includes an Ohio State-North-
western match tomorrow, and a
Buckeye-Michigan encounter Satur-


Hoyt Picks Jesse Owens Over
Anderson, California Dashman

Jesse Owens, class of the Middle'
West, or George Anderson, greatest
of the sprinters on the coast, which is
the better? Such a question will un-
doubtedly be raised by the time of
the National Intercollegiate Meet in
June, but today Coach Charlie Hoyt
is prepared to pick the Buckeye flash.
Having seen both perform this sea-
son, Owens indoors and Anderson in
the California-Michigan dual meet
on the coast, Hoyt will pick Owens
over Anderson at 100 yards without
qualification, and will leave the 220
a toss-up.
Both have registered the record
time of 9.4 seconds for the shorter
dash, Owens in winning the 1933
National Interscholastic dash and An-
derson last year as a freshman, but
Hoyt picks Owens as the fastest col-
lege sprinter in thecountry. His
statement was modified by a bystan-
der who added the general consensus
'no one knows how fast the boy can
In competition Hoyt would pick

Buckeye Meet

Owens on the basis of his greater
experience. "That fellow knows just
about all there is about foot racing,"
Hoyt says, while Anderson is notably
a comparative novice.
Running against Willis Ward in the
Bear-Michigan meet, Anderson lost
all form when he was pressed by the
big Wolverine star and just managed
to eke out his win.
In the lon'ger dash there would be
a different story, perhaps, with the
California star favored to make a
better showing. Big and strong, he
has been picked by Dean Cromwell,
the veteran coast coach and critic, as
a future record breaker, and with
experience will undoubtedly find that
event to his liking.
But Hoyt, although he has not seen
Owens run the furlong during the
current season, would look to the
Buckeye to win in the longer sprint
as well, again on the basis of his
greater experience.
With Anderson given two years
more of college competition, however,
it is certain that a great race would
be expected in the 220, and although
Owens probably will remain a favorite
at 100 yards, another race equally
as colorful would be expected in the
shorter event. Both sophomores, the
two will meet at least three times in
the next three years in national meets.


The invaders will present one of
the strongest outfits in the Big Ten
this year, as their squad list boasts
the names of the Ball brothers,
George and Russell. Both are sopho-
mores, and are Western doubles
Coach John Johnstone of the
Michigan team has not decided defi-
nitely yet on his starting lineup, but
said yesterday that showings in Chi-
cago last week-end indicated that the
untried members of his squad were
entitled to an opportunity against
Conference competition.
Revamped Order Indicated
Indications early this week pointed
to a revamped lineup with Bob An-
derson of Grand Rapids playing at
the No. 1 position. If that scheme is
followed, Howie Kahn will probably
play as the Wolverine No. 2 racquet-
eer, while Jarvis Dean and Johnny
Rodriguez play the No. 3 and No. 4
Should Northwestern bring a fifth
man, Ted Thorward will oppose him.
The doubles combinations are
equally uncertain, but it is probable
that Anderson wil pair with either
Thorward or Dean for the No. 1 duo.
The Northwestern record so far
this season points to the certainty of
a real battle. Recently they have
shut out both Notre Dame and Wis-
consin, the former 7 to 0, and the
latter 6 to 0. Coach Johnstone is ex-
pecting the Wildcats to bring only
four men, but should they have a
five-man team, the Wolverines are
prepared to meet them.
Ball Brothers Outstanding
The Ball brothers are the Purple's
outstanding threat. In addition to
the doubles title they hold jointly,
George is the Western Indoor Champ-
ion, while his brother holds the Chi-
cago indoor title.
Rugg, No. 3 man on the North-
western squad, has a record as good
as the Ball brothers for his recent
competition. Against Notre Dame
he won his singles match in straight
sets, 6-3, 6-4, and teamed with Doher-
ty to win the single-set doubles en-
countered, 6-3.
Vic Heyliger, right fielder, who
was hit on the elbow of his left
arm with a pitched ball in Tues-
day's contest with Toledo Univer-
sity,,will be out of the .game for a
few days with a stiff arm, Coach
Ray Fisher reported yesterday. It
is expected that Heyliger will be
ready for service in the two-game
series with Ohio State.Friday and
Saturday here, however.
