Ohio Nine Here In TWO

Tilts atbe9;aders Due Toiiiorrow

------By Bill REED
THE MANAGEMENT of the Drake Relays, which event Michigan's track
team forsook this year to enter the Penn Relays, was greatly disappointed
at the Michigan withdrawal and directed several queries in that vein to-
wards Ann Arbor, essaying to establish a reason for Michigan's preference
to enter the Eastern classic.
The answer, fairly obvious even at that time, is borne out at the present,
and incidentally justifies the decision by the Michigan powers to appear in
the East.
The answer is simply that, although competition at Drake is no less
keen than at Penn, there is a real payoff in the East in prestige. The
oldest and grandest track extravaganza in the country, interest in the
Penn Relays exceeds practically every other meet of the year with the
possible exception of such events as the Princeton Invitational meet.
And there has been no failure to recognize Michigan's entry in the East
for even though entering for the first time in many years, the Wolverine
record in the Middle West has penetrated Eastern cirlees so effectively that
track critics there uniformly have picked the Wolverine teams as outstand-
ing contenders in all three relay events. The mile relay team without excep-
tion is favored to run ahead of Manhattan, the two-mile team without
Louisiana State is picked to win and the four-mile team is generally favored,
Michigan State's defending champions also: being named.
In the individual events Skip Et :hells is generally mentioned in the
discus on the basis of his Big Ten mark last spring. Two Michigan indi-
vidual entries are never mentioned, however, and we hereby go out on the
limb to predict that both will finish in the money - Walter Stone and
Leonard Dworsky - and that Stone should lead the field in the steeple-
Dworsky has had but one good throw in his entire career, but that career
is so brief, little more than a single season, and he has shown such
excellent form this spring that he should place in the javelin with a throw
of better than 190 feet.
IT WAS REMARKED above that competition at Penn, despite the size
of the field, was no more keen than at Drake, and records of the 1935
meets appear to bear that point out. The obvious reason is that Western
teams find it financially impossible to go East despite the fact that their
calibre is uniformly superior to the Eastern teams.
Comparative times in the 1935 meets show that in the relay events three
winners at Drake, in the quarter-mile, the half-mile and the two-mile bet-
tered times of corresponding winners at Penn while three Penn winners had
better records than Brake winners in the same events. Comparison, how-
ever, is of little value because of track and weather differences.
MICHIGAN track fans will be given an opportunity to hear broadcasts of
almost every event in which Michigan is entered at Penn today and to-
morrow. Broadcasts for today are scheduled by WABC (Detroit outlet WJR)
from 2:15 to 2:30, from 3 to 3:15, from 4:15 to 4:30 and from 5 to 5-15. WJZ
(Detroit outlet WXYZ) will broadcast from 2:15 to 2:30 and from 5 to 5:15.
Michigan entries today are Walter Stone in the steeplechase which
begins at 4:50 but which will probably b.e included in the 5 p.m. broad-
cast, and John Townsend in the shot put and Skip Etchells in the
discus, both of which begin at 3 p.m. and carry through for almost two
Tomorrow WEAF (Detroit outlet WWJ) will broadcast from 2 to 2:30;
WABC will broadcast from 1:45 to 2 and from 4 until 4:15; and WJZ from
3:15 to 5 will alternate broadcasts from Penn and Drake.
The schedule of events for tomorrow includes trials in the 100-meters
invitational dash at 4:05 and finals at 4:20; the two-mile relay at 3:35;
the mile relay at 4:10 and the four-mile relay at 4:25.
The javelin and broad jump eliminations begin at 3 p.m.
All times are Eastern Standard.

Already recognized as the red letterj

schedule, Saturday, May 9, gained
still greater magnitude yesterday
when Coach Ray Fisher announced
that the Wolverine baseball team
will meet Ohio State in a double-
header here that afternoon.
Tomorrow the Ferry Field diamond
will be put into use for the first time
this year as far as an actual game
is concerned when the hard-hitting

at Michigan's expense in an impor-

plans to send Captain Larson through

pitch tomorrow.
Grid Game Is Same Day
The May 9 card will be a bargain
for local fans as it will also fea-
ture the annual spring football game
in the Stadium and the only home
dual track meet of the season. In
the latter the Wolverines will clash
with the fast-stepping Illinois team.
The baseball team was originally
scheduled to meet the Buckeyes May
8 and 9 on Ferry Field in single
games, but the postponement of last
Tuesday's tilt at Columbus has forced
the clubsinto three games intwo
days, a break for Wolverine fans.
Michigan, already established as a
title contender due to their great
hitting strength, will be favored to
cop all three games with Larson, Gee
and Fishman handling the mound1
duties. Ohio boasts only one ace,

Pitchers Star In Opening Tilts

Law Club Defeats Fletcher
Hall As J.O.E.'s Beat
Wolverine B Team
Pitchers held the key to yester-
day's Intramural softball game which
marked the opening of the indepen-
dent division's schedule. Showing re-
markable change of pace Jim Stew-
art hurled the Law Club to a 12 to 2
victory over the Fletcher Hall aggre-
gation and Bernie "Schoolboy" Dreyer
fast-balled the J.O.E.'s to a 7 to 4 win
over the Wolverine B team.
Stewart held Fletcher Hall to three
hits and starred at bat with a home
run and a triple. Both Stewart and
Dreyer fanned 10 men apiece with
both games going six innings.
Fletcher Hall scored first in the
F. H.-Law Club tilt, putting a run
across in the first half of the second
inning on a Law Club error. The
winners tied the score in their half
of the second and two doubles, a
single, and Stewart's triple put across
three more to give them a lead which
they never relinquished.
Charles Mitrovich the F. H. flinger,
was given poor support and though
he yielded 12 hits he struck out
eight men.
Dan Tucker hit the only other
home run besides Stewart's in the
fifth inning for Law Club. The field-
ing on both teams was sloppy with
no one showing up to advantage.
Breyer opened the J.O.E.-Wolverine
B contest setting the Wolverines down

one, two, three, striking out all three
men that faced him. The J.O.E.'s
hopped on the offerings of Art Rus-
sell for five hits in their half of
the first and capitalized on fielding
errors to collect eight runs before the
Wolverines had chalked up a hit.
Ed Shulman looked best for the
winners at the plate connecting for
a home run and a three-base hit.
Joe Julian hit on all three trips to
the plate and Manny Skala made
three out of four, including a double
and two singles. Oscar Luttermoser
was outstanding for the Wolverines in
the hitting department while Herb
Pederson looked good in left field
making some fine catches.
