If pitcher's records mean anything

Both George Rudness and Steve
Uricek, Wolverine center fielder and

ball at better than a .300 rate, while
Uricek's average tops the .400 mark.

Test With Ohioa
Michigan's 30-Man Teamc
In Opening Conference
Meet Of Season
COLUMBUS, May 1. -- Michigan'ss
30-man track team rested here to-r
night for tomorrow's crucial test withI
Ohio State's determined Buckeyes ink
the first Conference meet of the sea-
son for the championship Wolverines.
Coach Charlie Hoyt's men from
Ann Arbor are favorites at home tot
trim the Scarlet and Gray by some-
thing between one and a half-dozen
points, but here in the lair of the
Bucks the story is a different one.
Local papers have it figured out
on paper that Coach Larry Snyder's
proteges will beat the Wolverines in
the first official lap to a Conference
championship -if George O'Brienl
and Bob Blickle come through in the
first event of the program, the all-
important mile, and if Charlie Beet-
ham comes through with a victory in
the 440 as well as the half-mile.
However, to the Wolverines these
hypothetical victories will remain
products of the Scarlet and Gray's
imagination. O'Brien came to the
fore in the Penn Relays, ut it is ex-
pecting too much to hope that he
can beat either or both Clayt Brels-
ford and Ray Fink. First and second,
for Michigan in the opening race will
go a long ways toward deciding the
outcome of the meet.
Few will deny Beetham the fa-
vorite's spot in the half-mile run,
but to honestly believe that he can
outrun both Stan Birleson and Har-
vey Patton in the quarter is again
stretching it too far.
The Buckeyes have 15 sure points
in the person of Jesse Owens, but
Michigan's Sam Stoller will be close
on his heels in the 100, 220 and
broad-jump, and an upset is far from
The Wolverines have a good chance
for a slam in the discus where Skip
Etchells, Mike Savage and Johnny
Townsend will do the honors, and
should score one-two indthe two mile
run with Walt Stone and Bill Staehle
performing. The Scarlet and Gray
may come through with all three
places in the pole vault and hre fga-
vorites to do so in the high jump.

Mud at Churchill Downs!
Yes, that's what it looks like and, although in horse racing the only
certain thing is that nothing is certain, the problem of picking the winner
of the 62nd Derby is greatly simplified if the field parades to the post over aI
I think that Grand Slam will win tomorrow's race, with Indian BroomI
second, and Granville third.
But let's pass on to a consideration of the field:
GRAND SLAM - Loves the mud. One of the two juveniles to win four
stakes last year, and each of the victories was over an "off" track. Both
starts this year have been over fast tracks, and, although he's won neither,
his performances have been creditable. But no matter what he does on a
fast track, he's an entirely different colt in the mud. He should win.
INDIAN BROOM - The big threat. Can run over any kind of a track.
His big achievement was beating Top Row, winner of the $100,000 Santa
Anita Handicap, by eight lengths for a new world record for a mile and an
eighth. Look out!
GRANVILLE - Another one of Gallant Fox's sons. Remember Omaha?
Well, this fellow isn't another Omaha probably, but he can run a distance
and run it fast. Second in the Wood Memorial last week, but newsreels
verify the verdict that lie wasn't called upon for everything he had.
BREVITY -- The Big Shot and heavy favorite. If the track should, by
any chance, be fast and this colt should get out in front, it may be all over.
But, under any conditions, Brevity still has to prove he can beat a good field
and come from behind. A great horse or just another good one? Today's
race will tell, and I don't see him in the money.
THE REST OF THE FIELD - Bold Venture likes the mud and has run
creditable races. Bradley has a better pair in Banister and Bien Joli than
he did last year, but they're meeting better ones today. He Did is a real
dark horse, with a victory in the Santa Anita Derby (in the mud) and a recent
win over Grand Slam and other good ones to his credit. Tuefel is a durable
and courageous colt who won his first race last Saturday - the Wood Me-
morial. The Milky Way entry will suffer if the track is heavy because The
Fighter can't run in the mud. His stable mate, Sangreal, doesn't mind it,
but appears to lack the class to win. Gold Seeker is a filly, and fillies aren't
supposed to win. But this miss closed a great gap to finish third in the
Santa Anita Derby, and followed that up with a smashing win over a fine
field in the Chesapeake Stakes two weeks ago. I don't think Coldstream
can go the distance. The rest of them may be safely considered out of it.
COME ON, GRAND SLAM!

After the fine offensive showing of
last week, the Michigan Varsity grid-
ders proved that they were quite
capable of putting up a fine defen-
sive struggle in their second scrim-
mage of the spring training session
at the stadium yesterday afternoon.
Although the Blue team won the
scrimmage by the score of 18-0, the
Whites played a fine game until the
excessive heat made the players let up
The first Blue score came in the
opening minutes of th'e contest when
Dan Smick broke through to block
Manella's punt and Chet Stabovitz
fell on the ball for a touchdown. The
Whites immediately started an of-
fensive from their own 30-yard line
when two fine runs by Frost, who in
cidentally was the best ball-carrier on
the field yesterday, and a pass, Man-
ella to Frost, carried the pigskin to
the Blue's twelve-yard stripe. Here,
however, the first team led by John
Jordan put on a great stand and
took the ball on downs back to their

Rudness lined his second double past

was no more run production, but at
this time Normal tallied twice on two

Rudness, back in uniform after

the Michigan offensive with three
hits. Rader, Huron first baseman,
and Merle Kremer, Wolverine left
fielder, each collected two.
