Willis Ward, Michigan's "one man
track team" will compete in his cus-'
tomary four events in the Big Ten
track championships here Friday and
Saturday, Coach Chuck Hoyt said
The versatile star suffered a recur-
rence of an old leg injury while run-
ning in the 100-meter sprint in the
Penn Relays on April 26 and has not
seen action since that time.
Last week Coach Hoyt pronounced
Ward ready to compete in three
events, the 120-yard high hurdles, the
broad jump, and the high jump,
but the tall senior has been eating
his heart out all year for a chance to
meet Jesse Owens of Ohio State in the
100-yard dash. Saturday he proved
himself ready by breezing through
a trial in the century at :10 flat.
Yesterday Ward went through all
his events and felt good all the way.
He took several sprints, ran a few
flights of hurdles, and exercised In
both jump events, doing 22 feet, 4
inches in the broad jump with ease
before Coach Hoyt stopped him.
The apparent return of Ward to
form means that he will be an out-
standing favorite to win the hurdles
and the high jump, and he will con-
tinue his rivalry with Owens for vic-
tories in the other two events,
After winning the broad jump on
the first day of the Big Ten meet last
year, Ward pulled a muscle in the
back of his leg in the 100-yard dash
and barely managed to stagger in
fifth. This was the first outbreak of
the injury that has bothered him ever
He made a brave attempt to carry
out his duties in the hurdles and
high jump, but tied for fourth in
the jump and failed to clear the first
barrier in the obstacle event.
As a sophomore the former Detroit
Northwestern performer scored 16
points in the outdoor Conference
championships, winning the 100 and
high jump, and taking second in the
broad jump and high hurdles.

Illini Put End
To Title Hopes I
Ball Team To Encounter
Western State, Purple,
Badgers On Road Trip
A disastrous seventh innin and in-
ability to hit in the pinches in Sat-
urday's game at Illinois eliminated
Michigan as a contender for the Big
Ten baseball title.
The lack of batting power when it
is needed most has characterized the
Michigan attack all season, but the
deluge of ill luck in that seventh in-
ning was more than anyone expected.
Two errors, two hit batsmen, and
three scratch hits coupled with one
clean one gave Illinois six runs, twice
as many as it needed. Hale Swan-
son was the winning pitcher, defeat-
ing Berger Larson for the second time
Friday's 6-to-1 win over Purdue,
coupled with Chicago's defeat had
given the Wolverines hopes for the
championship a decided boost. Mich-
igan stole eight bases, took advan-~
tage of seven Boilermaker errors, and
hit much harder than usual to make
things easy for Art Patchin.
Michigan takes to the road again
this week-end to play four games in
three days. Western State will be
.met Thursday, on Friday the team
will face Northwestern at Evanston,
and a double header will be played
at Wisconsin Saturday. A postponed
game scheduled with the Badgers for
Ann Arbor last month necessitates
the double header.
Coach Ray Fisher will probably
keep his lineup unchanged for the
four-game trip. His pitching staff
will be severely tested, and it is none
too strong beyond Larson and Patch-
in. Russ Oliver, John Gee, George
Butler, and the much-improved Earl
Meyers are candidates for starting
assignments on the trip. Fisher has
made no pitching selections for any
of the games yet.
BUTLER LEAVES SCHOOL
George Butler, varsity baseball
hurler, left school yesterday when he
was called to his home. He will prob-
ably not return for the rest of the
school year. Butler had just returned
from a trip with the varsity nine.

-- By BILL REED -
MICHIGAN'S golf team will top off
its defense of the Big Ten golf
title today, the tennis team will leave
tomorrow for the Conference wars at
Chicago and the baseball team will
engage in a major-league schedule
over the week-end, but the major at-
tention of Michigan sports followers
will be focused on the Conference
track meet here Friday and Saturday.
Aside from the contest for the
team title, two individuals will hold
the spotlight in the two-day meet,
Willis Ward of Michigan and Jesse
Owens of Ohio State. The same ques-
tion will be asked of both, "What are
you going to do?"
Owens stands in the remarkable
position of threatening four world's
records in the meet, in the100, 200,
broad jump, and low hurdles. The
Buckeyes' "Ebony Antelope" last Sat-
urday broke the accepted mark in the
low hurdles in :22.9, tiedhthe univer-
sal mark of :09.4 in the hundred,
missed the 220-yard mark of :20.6 by
a tenth-second and jumped 25 feet,
5 1/16 inches in the broad jump. Not
yet at his peak, Owens will be ex-
pected to be at his best here, and with
the fast track and favorable weather
may come through to new marks in
Willis Ward, whose bad leg has
made him something of a question-
mark, will enter in four events, Coach
Chuck Hoyt said yesterday, although
his entry in the hundred is a conces-
sion to Willie's wishes. Ward has
demonstrated since Friday that he is
in top form for the broad jump, high
jump and high hurdles, but not until
yesterday did Hoyt assent to his meet-
ing with Owens in the century.
To prove his condition, Ward went
through his entire repetoire yesterday,
including a demonstration of his
amazing versatility by changing his
take-off foot in the broad jump from
his injured right leg to his left. Jump-
ing off his left foot for the first time,
Ward did better than 20 feet, but
added, "I'll do 22 feet this time."
Jumping a second time he did 22 feet,
4 inches, but was sent in before he
could prove his claim to a 23-foot
Ward's entry in the hundred is
wholly a concession by Hoyt to his
star's desire to meet Owens, for he has
a mortal fear that Willis may repeat
his leg injury in that event, striving
to best the fleet Buckeye. "I just
can't keep him out," Hoyt says, "he
wants to run so bad he can taste it."
Ken Doherty, freshman coach,
tastes something else when Ward
runs, however. "It's my heart," he
says, "it gets up there every time
Willis pulls out."
