Schommer In Finals
EVANSTON, Ill., May 24. - () -
Sweeping through today's singles and
doubles competition without the loss
of a match, Coach A. A. Stagg, Jr.'s
University of Chicago tennis team
clinched its fourth straight Big Ten
championship and placed its num-
ber one man, Trevor Weiss, in to-
niorrow's title singles final against
Bill Schommer of Minnesota.
With six matches left to be played
tomorrow on the courts of Northwest-
ern University, the Maroons cannot
lose the team title, even should they
drop all five of their matches and
Minnesota, runner-up in the stand-
ings at the end of today's play, sweep
its remaining three.
The Chicago team total stood at 10
points after this afternoon's play.

place with 7. Northwestern, victim
in two surprising upsets, was tied with
Illinois for third place, each team
having four points. Standings on

Throughout the 1934 and 1935 sea-
sons, track experts predicted a bril-
liant future for the Big Ten by vir-
tue cf the performances of its soph-
omores in the dual meets. Now,
with the year almost completed and!
the whole group of second-year men
gathered together on one track, fans
are beginning to realize that the
prognosticators underestimated these
runners' worth instead of following
their usual trend and exaggerating.
The Western Conference has two
of its most brilliant years ahead of
it as far as track is concerned, and

ting their peak in that season. appear
destined to dominate the field.
Owens Needs No Comment
Jesse Owens calls for little com-
ments.- He is undoubtedly the
"world's fastest human" today. His
effortless running had spectators
gasping yesterday and his playful
"galloping" over the low hurdles and
still winning with ease merely ex-
hibited once more his superiority
over his competition.
The national cross-country title-
holder, Don Lash, will make his first
appearance in a Big Ten outdoor
meet today and the experts say that
here again there is an opportunity
to see a real champ in action. Lash
has encountered trouble in the dis-
tance events only rarely, and then
mostly from Ray Sears, Butler
Michigan Has Several
Michigan has more than its share
of sophomore stars. Bob Osgood,
Stan Birleson, Clayton Brelsford,
Sam Stoller, Howard Davidson, Fred
Stiles, and Walt Stone make up an
impressive list, which, while it con-
tains no outstanding individual star
to compare with Owens. is so well
balanced that it may prove more
valuable as far as team scores go
than the stars would be.
Bob Grieve's wins in his 220 and
100 qualification heats prove that
though obscured by ineligibility in
the early part of the season, he will
get his share of the spotlight in the
remainder of his college career.
Iowa Has Sprint Stars
Iowa's strength in the short races
is largely due to the sophomores onl
the team. Jimmy Owen attracted
attention early this year with his
record-breaking running indoors.
Now Gene Skinner, Andy Dooley,
Carl Nelson, and Clyde Briggs, mak-
ing up one of the fastest relay teams
in the country, are proving their
worth in the 440-yard run and the
220-yard dash. This quartet may
develop into one of the best that the
nation has ever.seen.
Charles Beetham, Ohio State's j
flashy half miler, has shown up well
in his last few meets, boasting the
fastest 880 in the Conference so far
and running an impressive 1:56.9 1
yesterday. These performances stamp'
him as the man to fill the gap left
by Chuck Hornbostel. Mel Walker
is another of the Buckeye's promis-
ing second year men.
Heg Is Wildcat Ace

ners making their Big Ten meet de-

Poor base-running and poor head-

with one run in the first inning, but
it was not until the ninth that they

No One To Replace Tessmer
Strangely enought, no great hurler
has been discovered this year to take
the place of Tessmer. Chi Psi uses
three pitchers of about equal merit
while Phi Psi relies mainly upon the
ability of their fielders.
Phi Kappa Psi has won most of its
games by batting in more runs than
the opposing team, and the team that
beats them will have to find someI
way of silencing the bats of Dave
Barnett, Carl Hilty, Bill Griffiths, and
Derwood Harris, all of whom are very

The two teams are seemingly even-$

George Andros, was almost too much
for them. Just three jolly good
