Illinois Team
Wolverine Championship
Big Ten Track Squad
Scores Nine Firsts
High Hurdle Record
Smashed By Osgood,
Sam Stoller Winm Victory1
Over Bob Grieve And
Indians Take Five Firsts'
Michigan's Big Ten championship
track team weit through its paces
before a home crowd yesterday for
the only time this season, overwhelm-
ing a weak Illinois team 79/2 to 46/2.
Favored by the best running condi-
tions of the season, better than at
the Penn Relays where Michigan en-'
tries contributed to the humbling of
the East, and far better than on the
rain-bogged field at Columbus last
Saturday when Ohio State submerged
the Wolverines, the Michigan team
scored nine firsts including slams in
five events. The Indians scored ar
slam in the high jump and took firsts
in the 220-yard dash, the low hurdles,
pole vault and broad jump.
Osgood Paces Squad
Bob Osgood paced the Michigan
squad to its win with a record-smash-
ing victory over a strong Indian en-
try in the high hurdles as he regis-
tered :14.3, bettering the National
Intercollegiate record of :14:4, the
Michigan record of :14.5 set last year'
by Willis Ward and the dual meet
mark of :14.6 set by Ward in 1934.
Osgood's performance, however,
shared attention with Sam Stoller's
payoff victory in the 100-yard dash
over Bob Grieve, who has been his
persistent conqueror since high school
days. Stoller was off his blocks firsts
never to be headed, winning going
away in :09.7.
Stan Birleson broke the tape in
second fastest time of his career in
the quarter mile, but the race was
featured by the appearance of Bill,
Miller, a sophomore making his first1
Varsity start, running extra yards as I
he was far outside, Miller easily1
passed the Illinois entries and pressed
Harvey Patton in second position.
Illinois Stars In Low Hurdles
Illinois' best showing was in the,
low hurdles when Wright sprinted far
ahead of the field to win in :23.4,
bettering the dual meet record of
Don Cooper and Jack Tarbill by a
tenth d Bnnr Ritn of Illini tu.

Militant, Aggressive Auto Union
Policy Presaged Iii convention

Significance Of Actions Is
Analyzed By Industrial
Research Assistant
A more militant and aggressive pol-
icy significant to the future of or-
ganized labor in the automobile in-
dustry was presaged in the proceed-
ings of the United Automobile Work-
ers Union convention in South Bend
last week, according to Anthony Lu-
chek, research assistant of the Uni-
versity Bureau of Industrial Relations,
who has just returned from the con-
Attracts Wide Attention.
With the attention of labor in-
terests throughout the nation focussed
on the convention, the Union officially
emerged from its probationary period,
shook off the yoke of American
Federation ofhLabor imposed leaders
dominating the Union since its in-
ception last August, and assumed for
the first time its own independent,
autonomous leadership
Amidst much off-the-scene dicker-
ing and horse-trading, according to
Mr. Luchek, Homer Martin of Kansas
City was elected president, ousting
Frank J. Dillon, who was appointed
to that office by the Executive Coun-
cil of the A. F. of L.
Labor interests were looking for-
ward to a settlement of the craft-
industrial jurisdictional dispute which
arose at the time the Union was or-
ganized within the A.F. of L. but this
issue was noticeably avoided, Mr. Lu-
chek stated.
Run By C.I.O.
The convention was largely run,
however, he continued, by four repre-
sentatives of John L. Lewis' Commit-
tee for Industrial Organization, an.
extra-legal group of nine industrial
unions affiliated with the A.F. of L.
which are now in rebellion against
the domination of craft unions over
the parent body.
The convention marked the begin-
ning of what might be called the pro-
bationary period of this organization
in the automobile industry, according
to Mr. Luchek, and a large measure

Mother's Day
Dr. Brashares Will Speak

of the success of organized labor in
this industry will depend on the abil-
ity of the C.I.O. to provide leadership,
funds and general support.
The U.A.W.A. may be expected to
continue its policy of accepting all
workers in the automobile industry,
Mr. Luchek stated in regard to the
jurisdictional question. "The issue is
one of potential jurisdiction, not ac-
tual, since craft unions within theI
auto industry have done little to ex-
ercise their jurisdictional rights," he
pointed out.
Mr. Luchek was inclined to min-
imhize the importance of jurisdictional
disputes, "It isn't the jurisdictionthat
makes the membership of a union," he,
remarked, "but the membership which
makes the jurisdiction."

Tleamn Defeats
Crucial Victory Is Won By
Varsity, 12-9; Kocsis Is
Low With Par 72
Michigan's Varsity golf team made1
up for Friday's defeat at the hands1
of Louisiana State yesterday by win-
ning from Northwestern, conqueror
of the southern team and the Wol-
verines' biggest rival for Big Ten1
honors, 12 to 9, over the University;
Coach Ray Courtright's National
Collegiate and Western Conference
champions could win only two of the
five sinries matches, but shut-out vic-
tories in both of the morning's doubles
matches allowed them to ride to their)
third Big Ten win of the season.
Capt. Chuck Kocsis put together a)
pair of perfect 36's during the doubles
to take medal honors with a par 72,
while Woody Malloy posted 36 and1
37 for a 73 to run second, winning his'
individual match from Bill Kostel-'
ecky, 2 to 1.
Kostelecky's 74, which included a
35 on the last nine, was the best '
Northwestern effort, although Pink
Wagner was headed for a 72 when
he won his match from Captain Koc-
sis on the 16th green and did not
complete the round.
Al Saunders, Michigan number
three man, also scored 74 with a 38-
36 in winning 2/ to r/2 from Capt.
Tom Saielli of the Wildcats.
Jim Marew with 42-38 - 80 won;
three points from Larry David of1
the Wolverines who turned in 44-42-
86. Bill Barclay was the third Mich-
igan man to drop a singles match
when his 38-41-79 cost him a 2-1
decision at the hands of Dick Gra-
ham who had 39-37-76.
Captain Kocsis with his par 72
teamed with Malloy, who had 38-36-
74, to blank Kagner and Kostelecky
who had, respectively, 38-37-75 and
43-40-83. Saunders with 39-36-75'
and David with 40-36-76 shut out
Saielli and Marek who posted 41-39--
80 and 38-38--76.

Baseball Team
Slugs Its Way
To 2 Victories
Ohio State Suffers Defeat
In Both Ends Of Double
Header, 4-2 and 14-2
(Gee And Fishmani
Winning Pitchers
Strong Offensive Power Is
Displayed By Michigan;
Brewer Outstanding
Twenty-five hundred sweltering
baseball fans, many of them visiting
high school coaches and athletes, yes-
terday learned why Michigan is con-
sidered a serious contender for the
1936 Big Ten crown when they saw
the Wolverines slug their way to
victory in both ends of a double
header with Ohio State, 4-2, and
John Gee and Herm Fishman gave
the Buckeyes more southpaw pitch-
ing than the aggregation from Co-
lumbus could solve and as a result
registered Michigan's fourth and
fifth Conference triumphs of the year..
As yet the Wolverines have not lost
to a Big Ten foe and are tied for
first place in the league standings.
Michigan also beat Ohio, 4-2, Friday.
Brewer Astounds Them
Especially cheering to Coach Ray
Fisher, besides the offensive power
his club displayed throughout the
afternoon, was the work of Don
Brewer at shortstop. The sophomore
infielder handled numerous difficult
chances without error and actually
astounded the fans with some of
his pickups and throws. Faurot,
Ohio's centerfielder, turned in the
most spectacular fielding gem of the
day, however, when he made a div-
ing catch of Rudness' drive in the
second inning of the secondgame.
In the opener Gee limited the Bucks
to four hits and three of these were
of the scratch variety. Michigan
counted twice in the fourth when
Kremer lined a single into left with
Jablonski and Lerner on second and
third. In the fifth Jablonski followed
Kremer's example with a hit while
Rudness and Ferner were resting on
the sacks for the other two runs.
Ohio's two runs came in the eighth
and were aided by a pair of walks
from Gee and a Michigan error.
Fishman Allows 4 Hits
Herman Fishman, pitching in the
nightcap, was also touched for only
four hits. This fracas lasted only
seven innings, the Buckeyes deciding
that they had had enough by that
Elsass started and gave two hits
and two runs in the first frame and
from this time on the Wolverines
were not headed. Four more crossed
the plate in the second on three hits'
and an equal number of Ohio errors.
In the fourth Brewer and Ferner
doubled and Uricek tripled to drive
Elsass from the box and Galloway,
who relieved him, managed to escape
with only one more man scoring.
Ohio picked up a run in the sixth
and another in the seventh but
couldn't equal Michigan's rallies
which netted two in the fifth and
three in the sixth.
Tuesday Michigan will play Western
State's powerhouse at Kalamazoo.

Fitzgerald Isf
Mentioned For
Believed Likely Candidate
If Senator Vandenberg
Doesn't Head Ticket
Republican Support
In State Is Sought
Governor's Speech In New
York Marked Rapid Rise
In Prominence
LANSING, May 9. - (Special to
The Daily) -Mention of Governor
Fitzgerald as a possible Republican
vice-presidential nominee, provided
Senator Vandenberg is not named to
head the ticket, was circulating
around the capital today.
The higher-ups in the State ad-
ministration will not admit it pub-
licly, but they are quite convinced
that if the Cleveland convention next
month decided on Landon or Borah,
rather than Vandenberg, Michigan's
governor will be right up there in the
vice-presidential run-offs. They are
frankly worried although they won't
be quoted, worried about keeping
Michigan in the Republican column
as far as the national election goes.
Governor Fitzgerald was not as much
of an alarmist as might be supposed
when he said last week that there was
a "grave danger" of Michigan going
for Roosevelt.
State Would Back Vandenberg
If Vandenberg is nominated, even
the staunchest Democrats here con-
cede that the State will back him
in November. But if he is not, even
the staunchest Republicans are wor-
ried about it. Michigan, they'll tell
you, is a pivotal state. It will go Re-
publican safely enough in the State
election, but in the national election
they are not so sure. And they have
fitful dreams when they think of the
way various and sundry national polls
show Michigan as anything but solid-
ly Republican.
Has Won Prominence
Certainly, even the few politicians
that pooh pooh the idea that Fitz-
gerald has a chance to win the vice-
presidential nomination admit that
the Governor has won considerable
prominence recently in national Re-
publican circles. His rise in the ranks
started with his speech to the Junior
Chamber of Commerce in New York
City during the winter. On the basis
of that, Governor Fitzgerald indicat-'
ed that he had some very definite
ideas about the future of the Republi-
can party, and, in no mincing words,
he set forth his opposition to Old
Guard dominance.
Recently he was invited to address
a big Republican conclave in Boston,
and more recently he accepted the

E xpected From
May Heat Wave
No relief for sweltering Ann Arbor
residents from the record-breaking
May heat wave was in sight last
The mercury fell to 86.6 degrees
above zero, at approximately 2:30 p.m.
yesterday, the weather bureau of the
University Observatory reported. It
is a record high for the year and
the highest the temperature has risen
this part of May in many years, ac-
cording to the Observatory.
The lowest temperature yesterday
was 67.8, shortly before 7 a.m. At
7:30 p.m. yesterday, the mercury was
at 81 degrees, the Observatory said,
and a drop was predicted for the
night. However, with only a slightly
falling barometer, chances were good
last night for unseasonable high tem-
peratures again today.
The highest temperature Friday,
the Observatory weather bureau re-
ported, was 84.7 degrees above zero,

American college senior, Dr. Harold;
Whitehall, formerly of London Uni-

English students- much morethan
from Americans," began Dr. White-
"We matriculate in the universities
by taking a comprehensive examina-

years. For instance, if we are to
specialize in English, we study the
English language from its Germanic
stage and the literature from Beo-

one major and one minor subject,,
the minor subject being completed in
two years.
"At the end of the first year, we
take an intermediate examination-

which constantly weed out the poorer
students and push on the better ones.
The mortality rate on these exams
is fearful."
