In Title Scrap
Chicago And Wildcats Are
Favored; Michigan Will
Battle For Third
With the 1937 Conference tennis
title at stake, 52 men from nine Big
Ten schools will open the first round
of the three-day tournament at 10
a.m. today at the Palmer Field courts.
There will be no admission charge
for today's and Friday's rounds. Tick-
ets for the final matches on Satur-
lay will cost 25 cents.
All of the schools in the Confer-
ence are being represented by the
regulation six-man team except two.j
Indiana has entered but four men,
and Purdue did not send a team.
Chicago Favored
While Chicago is the odds-on f a-
vorite, and Northwestern conceded
as good a chance for second place, the
remainder of the race is a toss-up,
with Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota,!
and Ohio State all bunched up near,
the top. And taking into account the
closeness of some of the scores on
which the pre-tourney dope is based,
the Wildcats are quite likely to have
a battle on their hands to even get
a good hold on the runner-up posi-

many dopesters, they're looking for-

paper their dual meet record shows'
a fifty-fifty split in the season's com-
petition, but the Wolverines point to
several facts that don't exactly sub-
stantiate the scores.
Records Compared
Their loss to .Wisconsin, the first
match of the season, was due in part
to the fact that Bill Mills and Jarvis
Dean, number two and four men re-
spectively were not playing. Iowa
conceded the doubles matches when'
the Varsity swept through the singles

Schultz turned in a masterful per-!
formance on the mound for the Go-
phers, never allowing more than one
hit in an inning and showing such
good control that not a single Wol-
verine was given a base on balls.
The Varsity's base-running, al-
though daring, failed to produce any
startling results and Steve Uricek,
Bob Campbell and Walt Peckinpaugh
were all caught while trying to steal
in the first four innings.
Michigan's only scoring threat
came in the fifth stanza when Uri-
cek opened with his second single
of the game and went down to second
base on Lee's bad throw to first.
Schultz bore down, however, struck
out Merle Kremer and got Campbell
on a long fly to right field after he
had forced Danny Smick to pop up.
Coach Fisher has not decided whe-
ther he will start Burt Smith, John
Gee or Johnny Smithers tomorrow
against the Gophers.

Ticket Sales Indicate

Advance ticket sales for the Big
Ten track and field meet here Fri-
day and Saturday indicate a ca-

Tillotson, ticket manager.
More than twice as many tickets
had been sold yesterday than had
been sold until the day of the'
meet when the event was held here
in 1935. More than 7,000 attended
the finals of that meet. 12,000
seats are reserved.
Tillotson is experiencing a great
deal of trouble giving every one
seats "three-quarters of the way
up and on the finish of the 100."

matches. Even so, all the players had
to keep jumping around to keep
warm. Adding to the cold discomfort,
rain put forth a helping hand.
Difference Small
The difference between the winning
and second place scores is not so great
as it may seem. Nine strokes differ-
ence in over 1,200 strokes, though
marking defeat, is not much of a de-
feat ,in fact, it is almost no defeat.
Although the Wolverine players lat-
er felt that they did not do so well asI
they might have they showed remark-
able power in the fourth round, pick-
ing up seven strokes on Northwestern
who was up 16 at the beginning of the
round. Where the team could have
gained-in the second day's morning
round-they lost six strokes and that
spelled the difference between first
and second.
Scores Not Bad
The individual scores turned in by
the top players, even considering the
weather conditions, were not too good.
One needs only to look at the score of
Chuck Kocsis who last year took the
honors with 284, four strokes under
par. Richardson, who won with a
301, however, played a very consist-
ent game. He is only a sophomore
and will have two more years of play.
Billy Warren, fighting and scrap-
ping all the way, showed that he
was a real addition to the squad and
should be a mainstay on next year's

D.D. Team Defeats
SpanishA.C. By 3-1
The D.D.'s No. 2 battled their way
into the semi-finals of the Indepen-
dent Softball League, yesterday, by
taking a 3-1 decision from the Span-
ish Athletes.
It was a pitching duel all the way,
with Ed Payne, D.D. hurler, allowing
but one scratch hit while his team-
mates were nicking Don Hendrix for
four. Hendrix, however, fanned 15
to his opponent's nine.
The D.D.'s jumped into an early
lead by tallying once in the first in-
ning. Johnny Mair, the second man,
up worked Hendrix for a pass and
scored a minute later on Bob Ku-
nitz' double. They scored again in
the fourth when Charles Ballance
singled and came all the way homel
on an error. The D.D.'s last run came
in the fifth., After Joe Sawawska had
opened the inning with a double and
advanced to third on Ripke's infield
out, Leon Dardas singled over second
to bring home their final run.
After leaving runners stranded on
third in two innings, the Athletes
staged a rally in the sixth tobreak
into the scoring column.
