Meet Ohio; Varsity


Tackles Illinoi



A Seven Foot Jump ? ? ?
"WHAT? A seven-foot high jump?"
Not an impossibility, says Coach
Charlie Hoyt, and a good weather
this afternoon may bring just that
to Ferry Field. Mel Walker and
Dave Albritton, a pair of dusky giants,
are here to do duty for Ohio State in
this event and right now look like
the boys who can do the "impossible."
Both of them have made officially ac-
cepted leaps to within a quarter o
an inch of six feet 10 inches, and
that isn't too far away from seven
feet. Coach Hoyt picks on this
Buckeye pair particularly because of
the bitter rivalry that exists between
them. Put a couple of men of their
ability together trying their utmost
to outdo each other, and you have
something. And I have a lot of re-
spect for Charlie Hoyt's opinions.
* * *
Trosko Weighs Enough...
backfield Coach Wally Weber are
not expressing too much concern over
the fact that Freddie Trosko, recip-
ient of the Chicago Alumni Award
this spring and the lad who is ex-
pected to supply most of the offensive
punch in the Michigan football line-
up next fall, weighs a scant 155
pounds. "Trosko is built to take it,"
they tell you, "and he has a knack of
setting himself for a heavy blow that
enables him to resist much of the re-
sulting shock." Wally adds: "Give
him a couple of feet on either side in
which to maneuver in, and you will
never meet him squarely."
How Many Sophomores ?
sophomores will be in the start-
ing lineup against Michigan State's
cocky eleven next October? The
Michigan coaching staff is not too
definite on its answers, and it can't
be at this early date, but it seems
pretty probable that one or two-or
maybe more-will join Trosko before
the opening whistle sounds. Right
now Joe Savilla is installed at right
tackle pposite Fred Janke, and vet-
eran Don Siegel is going to have to
step to oust him. Archie Kodros is
just behind Ralph Heikkinen as Fred-
die Olds' running mate at guard. John
Nicholson of the Elkhart clan was a
regular end during the spring drills
and the versatile veterans Elmer G e
deon and Danny Smick may not be
too much for him when they repor
in September. Norm Nickerson
junior coming up, had the number-
ne fullback job in his grasp last Sat-
urday, but Ed Christy was right on
his tail, and John Kinsey is a dark-
horse who may well be the surprise
of the 1937 season.
Reserves To Play
Freshmen Golfers
The Varsity reserves and the Fresh-
man squad will hold their annual gol
match this afternoon at the Univer-
sity Golf Course. The showing of th
freshmen in this match will deter-
mine to a great extent the numera
winners forthe year.
The eight men on each side are t
go out in four foursomes. They wil
play the best ball, but at the sam
time they will also play singles.
All freshmen scholastically elig-
ible, who are trying out for the nex
years' Varsity, should be at the tee
at one o'clock. They are to arrang
.matches and follow the first matche
The following men are to be. on the
teams: Yearnd, Williams (Varsity:

Harwood (Varsity) vs. Reese, Slate
(Frosh); Hoagland, Joines (Varsity:
vs. Jungans, Johnson (Frosh) ;, Mc-

Ohio Confident
Of Dope Upset
In MeetToday
Buckeye's Chances Hinge
On Showing Of Walker,
Albritton And Beetham
Optimistic Ohio, which last oc-
cupied a position of importance in
the track world when it could boast
that Jesse Owens was wearing the
Buckeye colors, is seeking today to
stage the greatest upset of 1937 by
beating the Michigan track team in
the dual meet scheduled for 2 p.m.
1 at Ferry Field.
Coach Larry Snyder of the Buck-
eyes is none too optimistic over his
team's chances, however. He feels
that the Wolverines should win by
at least 32 points which is probably
, a pretty fair guess. Other Buckeye
representatives, on the other hand,
have let their respective imagina-
tions wander to the point where they
are predicting an Ohio State triumph
this afternoon.
Lantern Confident
Most notable of these sideline ob-
servers are the sports writers of the
Ohio State Lantern who express con-:
fidence in Dave Albritton, Chuck
Beetham and Harley Howells to per-
form the impossible by winning
events which are far from their spe-
It is conceded that Albritton and
Mel Walker, two of-the greatest high
jumpers in the world, will take first
and second in, that event. Albritton,
however, is also being entered in the
high hurdles and because he chased
Jack Kellner of Wisconsin across the
finish line last week the alleged ex-
perts in Columbus think he will beat
i Michigan's Bog Osgood.
Beetham, who it will be remem-
bered is the national intercollegiate
champion in the half mile but who
lost to Ben Starr in this event last
- winter, has also been entered in the
low hurdles today. Snyder has
enough confidence in Beetham as a
hurdler to think he can give Osgood
a battle here. Mid-way through the
afternoon he will know if he guessed
s right.
Howells Good
Howells, definitely a good runner,
will beat Stan Birleson in the quar-
ter according to The Lantern. Birle-
son, however, happens to be the best
quarter-miler in the mid-west and is
t out to acquaint the Buckeyes with
this fact this afternoon.
In an effort to combat the ad-
- mitted strength of Ohio in the middl'e
z distance runs Coach Chuck Hoyt has
- revamped his team and will use How-
e ard Davidson in the 440 rather than
the half, Clayt Brelsford in the half
instead of the mile and Bill Staehle
in the mile instead of the two mile.
Workmen yesterday completed the
construction of a broad jumping pit1
directly in front of the stands and
in today's meet as well as the Big
- Ten meet May 21 and 22 the fans
f will have a clear view of this event.
- Bill Watson will again be favored to
e cop a first place here as well as in
- the shot and discus, although in the
1 last event he is certain he will be
pushed, by Johnny Townsend.

Fishman To Face Poat;

With their backs to the wall and
their chance for the Big Ten baseball
title hanging on the result of today's
game, Michigan's Varsity nine will
face a powerful Illinois aggregation
led by Ray Poat, the Illini's sensa-
tional hurling find, at 3:30 p.m. on
the Ferry Field diamond.

Brilliant Field Goes To Post
Today In 63rd Kenucky Derby

Starters Evenly Matched;
With War Admiral Held
As SlightFavorite
America's most renowned horse rac-
ing extravaganza, the Kentucky Der-
by, will reel off its 63rd showing to-
morrow against the picturesque back-
drop of sprawling Churchill Downs,
with all indicatins pointing toward a
glittering spectacle and a sufficiently
wide open race to give assembled
clans an exciting run for their money.


Twenty crack three-year-olds, best
of this year's somewhat ill-fated crop,
were entered today for the climax of
what promises to be the gaudiest der-
by drama in nearly a decade which
has seen the event emerge from de-
pression years and high waters to re-
capture all its old carnival-like flavor.
$62,575 Top Money
The thoroughbred pack will carry
the clors of the turf's foremost
stables, from coast to coast, in questJ
of aggregate prize money of $62,575,
restored to boom-time level after a'
four-year lapse, and the prestige that
goes exclusively to the winner of
this blue ribbon classic of the Blue-
grass Country.
Two short of the record 'starting
field of 1928 when Reigh Count won
the richest of all derbies, this year's
Equine array is notable chiefly for the
absence of a single filly, for the first
time in 10 years and the lack of any
dominating favorite such as a Twenty
Grand, Gallant Fox or Cavalcade.
Barring mishaps or repetition of
last year's rodeo start, however, there

appears sufficient class in the field to
establish the winning wearer of the
rose horse-shoe as a formidable con-
tender for the three-year-old crown
of 1937.
War Admiral In No. 1
Of the current choices, the 3 to 1
second choice, Mrs. Ethel V. Mars' en-
try of Reaping Reward and Military,
fared slightly better than the favor-
ite, Samuel D. Riddle's War Admiral,
in the draw for post positions.
Listed at 9 to 5 in the pre-race
books, War Admiral, the speedy little
son of Man O' War, drew the No. 1
spot, next to the rail, where it takes
a jack-rabbit break from .the barrier
to run clear of likely early interfer-
ence. Military seemed better placed
at No. 4, while the slower-starting but
stronger-finishing Reaping Reward,
ace of the Mars' entry, was placed
well on the outside, No. 17 from the
pole, with plenty of racing room.
Gerry Walker Retains
League Batting Crown
While Gerry Walker of the Tigers
and Gil Brack of the Dodgers retained
their league batting leaderships yes-
terday, three newcomers shot intc
the select set of baseball's "Big Six'
in hitting.
Standings (First Three in Eaelh

Merle "Butch" Kremer, husky
centerfielder, figured in all of
Michigan's five runs yesterday in
its defeat at the hands of Indiana
by blasting out a homer and two
doubles. to drive home three runs
and score theother two himself.
His batting was a redeeming fea-
ture of the Wolverine loss.
