Men As

Recipients Of Varsity

Track Team Is
Given Awards

Meet For Title Tonight At Polo Grounds

Six Seniors And Neree Alix
Have Completed College
Twenty-five members of the Mich-
igan track team, which made a clean
sweep of the Big Ten, winning both
the outdoor and indoor titles, were
awarded letters, yesterday and three
others were given numeral sweaters.
Those given letters are: Frank W.
Aikens, Neree D. Alix, Martin M.
Alexander, Stanley R. Birleson, Clay-
ton E. Brelsford, Howard R. Davidson,
Nelson R. Droulard, E. Widmer Etch-
els, Paul J. Gorman, Roderic B. How-
ell, David S. Hunn, Robert J. Kosit-
chek, Konrad Moisio, Winston C.
Moore, Harry E. O'Connell, Robert
D. Osgood, Harvey W. Patton, Paul W.
Pinkerton, Michael Savage, Captain
Harvey Smith, Frederick C. Stiles,
Sam Stoller, Edward Adam Stone,
Walter B. Stone, and Willis Ward.
Numeral winners are Chester D.
Barnes, Moreau Hunt, and Melvin
Neree Alix Through
Only six of this group are seniors
although Neree Alix may be added for
he never will run again because of
the injury that he received in the
California meet. Ward, Smith, How-
ell, Kositchek, Moisio, and Moore are
the six who have ended their Michi-
gan track careers, although a few of
them may appear in the Nationals.
With the regular season closed 11
men have turned in qualifying per-
formances for the National track and
field meet which is scheduled for June
21 and 22 at the University of Cal-
ifornia. They are Ward, Stoller, Os-
good, Birleson, Davidson, Aikens,
Gorman, Smith, Etchells, and Walt
Stone. The rules committee of the
National Collegiate Athletic Associ-
ation will consider those men who are
eligible and well select the more con-
sistently good performers to run in
the championships.
Five May Compete
Of the Michigan group, five have an
excellent chance to receive invita-
tions.. Willis Ward, by virtue of his
broad jumping and high jumping
ability, Captain Smith, Etchells, Stol-
ler, and Walt Stone all did well in
the Big Ten meet placing third or
better in their events. Other Confer-
ence men who were first or second or
even third in the faster events also
will probably be picked by the com-
mittee. The number which can be
invited, with expenses paid is limited
by the fund which covers this ex-
pense. This year it is $12,500.
The qualifying times are: 100-yard
dash, i9.8; 220-yard dash, :21.3; 440-
yard run, :48.9; 880-yard run, 1:56.0;
mile run, 4:22.0; two mile run, 9':40.0;
120-yard high hurdles, :14.9; 220-yard
low hurdles, :23.8; high jump, 6 feet
4 inches; broad jump, 24 feet; pole
vault, 13 feet 6 inches; shot put, 48
feet 6 inches; discus throw, 150 feet;
javelin throw, 200 feet; and the ham-
mer throw, which is not inclued in
the Conference events, 150 feet.
31 'M' Blankets To
Honor Michigan's
Graduating. Stars
Thirty-one senior athletes, most of
whom played a large part in bring-
ing to Michigan six championships

have won at least two letters in a
single sport.
Among the recipients of the awards
are many truly great athletes, men
who have been among the best in the
nation in their field. There is Willis

all-around track and football stars
of all time; Taylor Drysdale, three
times National Collegiate champion
in the backstroke; Johnny Fischer,

titleholder; Johnny Sherf, the great-
esC'of Michigan's hockey greats; and
Russ Oliver, the fourth nine-letter
man in Michigan history.
The others who will receive blankets

Michigan Nine
To Meet M.S.C.
In FinalToday
Five Wolverine Regulars
Play Their Last Game;
Patchin To Face Berg
Michigan plays it final home base-
ball game of the year at 4 p.m. today
on Ferry Field, with ArL Patchin fac-
ing Michigan State's ace, Johnny
Berg, on the mound.
The Wolverines' Big Ten season
ended Friday as the nine split a double
header with Wisconsin after Johnny
Gee had tamed Northwestern's Wild-
cats the day before, 6-2, giving only
three hits and striking out 15. West-
ern State defeated the Varsity, 8-4,
in the other game of the road trip.

The experts are having a hard time picking the probable winner
in the welterweight championship bout tonight at the New York Polo
Grounds when Jimmy McLarnin (left) will defend his title against
Barney Ross (right) in a 15-round engagement. Ross, retired light-
weight champion, was beaten by Jimmy in their last clash for the 145-
pound crown. Both are veteran campaigners, Ross getting his start
as a Golden Gloves Champion.

_ - - - By BILL REED
For a great many years I have their coach who could instill it in

heard of "the Michigan Spirit" and
have held a sort of holy reverence for
it, although I have never seen in print
a definition of it. Now, I do not intend
to attempt such a definition today,
for it is of course impossible of defi-
nition, but I believe that every one
of the 10,000 people who saw Michi-
gan win the Conference track meet
Saturday saw that spirit incarnate in
the boys who came through when it
counted, in their most important meet
of the year.
There was Harvey Patton, jostled
about in the mob in the 440 and Stan
Birleson, both running the best races
of their careers, Frank Aikens fight-
ing to a place in the half-mile, Cap-
tain Smith and Clayt .Brelsford, both
runningbetter than they ever did in
their lives to place in the mile, Sam.
Stoller in the broad jump and dash,
Mike Savage in the discus, and Walt
Stone, making up 60 yards in the'
last 300 to beat the man who had
twice won from him in the two mile.
There was Skip Etchells throwing
the discus seven feet beyond the best
throw of his career after the defend-
ing champion had tossed a defiant
challenge at the field, Bob Kositchek,
rising to place third in the javelin
the fighting relay team which showed
Michigan's all-around superiority by
setting a record when all it had to do
was place, and then there was Willis
I felt sorry for Ward on Friday
when he failed to qualify in the hur-
dles because I thought I knew how
much that meet meant to him, and I
felt actually blue when he scratched
in the hundred, but when he came
back to make the best jump of his
career to cinch second in the broad
jump - well, it just isn't in the books
to feel sorry for men like that.
In short, they had the spirit, and
Michigan can be proud of a team like
that. And it is no small tribute to
Phi Psis Win Softball
Crown From Chi Psis
Phi Kappa Psi defeated Chi Psi,
11-6, yesterday, behind the steady
pitching of Gard Slocum to win the
fraternity softball championship.
Slocum struck out only two men but
kept the hits well distributed, and
forced the Chi Psi sluggers to pop out
when there were men on base.
Bill Griffths brought in three runs
for the winners with three hits; and
Dick Evans, the losing pitcher, hit a
home run with nobody on base. With
two men out in the sixth inning, Chi
Psi started a rally and made three
hits in a row.

Hero of a day which will live for-
ever, Jesse Owens remains just a swell
fellow and even a bit bewildered him-
self. Besieged by admirers so that he1
had to dress in his shower, on the
street after the meet Owens no more
gave the impression that he had just
performed the mightiest individual
bit of record smashing in the history
of the sport than this typewriter.
No one in the world can begrudge
the 21-year-old sophomore his laurels.,

The remarkable smoothness with'
which the Conference track meet was'
run off and which received such un-
qualified approval is a tribute to the
managerial abilities of Ken Doherty,
Michigan's freshman coach. Doherty
had complete charge of arrangements
for the meet and is completely re-
sponsible for its unquestioned success.-
* * *
And speaking of tributes, as we
seem to be doing, the three-hit victory
of John Gee over Northwestern on
Friday is a tribute to the patience and
ability of Ray Fisher. Taking charge
of Gee as a completely unschooled
freshman, Fisher appears to have de-
veloped a highly promising hurler.
And don't think that that win Friday
won't help Michigan's basketball
chances next winter!

Phil Diamond, who was head timer
Saturday. He spent a considerable

The same lineup that has started
in most of Michigan's games this
year will take the field against the
strong Spartan nine today. With the
best team it has had in years, Mich-
igan State has mowed down its oppo-
sition regularly.
Five End Careers
Five regulars on the Varsity nine
will play their final home game to-
day. The whole infield -George
Ford, Jack Teitelbaum, Clayt Paul-
son, and Capt. Russ Oliver - and
John Regeczi, left fielder, graduate
this June.
Two victories in the three Confer-
ence road games gave Michigan a 1935
Big Ten record of six won and five
Despite home runs by Regeczi (his
third of the year) and Teitelbaun,
Western State outhit Michigan in
winning. Earl Meyers, making his
first start, was in a hole much of
the time, and it was then that the
Hilltoppers got the hits that counted.
In addition to his home run, Teitel-
baum hit harder than anyone on the
trip. Sensational fielding plays robbed
him of several safe blows.
Wildcats Praise Gee
Northwestern players said that the
fast ball Johnny Gee showed in de-
feating them was "the fastest they
had seen all year." Gee also had
surprisingly good control during his
surprising performance. Northwest-
ern errors helped Michigan in win-
ning, however.
On the other hand, Michigan errors
were largely responsible for their de-
feat in the morning game against
Wisconsin Saturday. After losing this
game, 6-3, the Wolverines came back
in the afternoon to down the Bad-
gers, 13-7, and finish the Conference
season with an average above .500.

Seven Men Awarded
Frosh Golf Numerals
A seven-man yearling squad of
Michigan golfers, all of whom have
averaged under 78, and two of
whom have been playing par golf,
was characterized by Prof. Thomas
C. Trueblood, coach, as the great-
est freshmen golf team ever to
represent Michigan when he an-
nounced the numeral awards yes-
The reason that Michigan draws
so many outstanding golfers was
ascribed by Prof. Trueblood to the
fact that it has the finest course
in the Conference.
Minnesota, Ohio State, Wiscon-
sin, and Illinois must all travel six
miles to get to a "standard" links,
while Northwestern and Chicago
are more than 20 miles from the
courses which they use for play.
In the Big Ten only Iowa, Indiana,
Purdue, and Michigan have their
own courses.
Prof. Trueblood can see no time
on the very near horizon when
the Wolverines will not be supplied
with a galaxy of good golfers.
The seven men to whom nu-
merals were awarded are: John
Cameron, Detroit; Alfred Karpin-
ski, Rochester, New York; William
Barclay, Flint; William Warren,
Detroit ;Walker Graham, Detroit;
John K. Mooney, Marion, Ind.; and
Arthur Harwood, Toledo, Ohio.
Tigers And Rowe
Bow To Yanks, 3-:1
NEW YORK, May 27. - (A,) -
Johnny Allen's three-hit pitching
proved too much for Schoolboy Rowe
and the Tigers here today, and the
ex-pride of Eldorado was forced to
take his first defeat from the Yan-
kees, 3 to 1..
Detroit scored its lone run in the
ninth on Morgan's pinch double, La4-
zeri's error on Cochrane's grounder,
and Gehringer's line drive to Chap-
man. Besides Morgan's hit, Coch-
rane and Gehringer were the only
ones to hit safely, while everyone ex-
cept Red Rolfe were able to break inte
the hit column for the Yanks. Laz-
zeri and Chapman hit triples off of
Rowe's delivery.
Other results:
