pletely, however, as is shown by the
hit total which they garnered. Lead-
ing the local attack, were the potent
bats of Capt. Merle "Butch" Kremer,
Elmer Gedeon and Walter Peckin-
paugh, a trio which accounted for
nine of the 14 safe blows.
Kremer lashed out two singles and
a ninth inning home run in four trips
to the plate, Bredewater giving him
intentional passes three times. Ged-.
eon, who tied up the battle with a
ninth inning single, also had three
hits as did Peckinpaugh with two
doubles and a single.
Smith Hurls Well
Chunky Burt Smith finally got his
starting break for Michigan and
hurled beautifully for seven innings,
retiring for a pinch hitter in the Wol-
"verine half. Ed Andronik, who fin-
ished, had only one bad frame-that
being, of course, that 15th.
Smith really had it yesterday. For
five innings, little Bucko allowed
nary a hit and only one man reached
first, he by virtue of a walk. In the
sixth, he suffered a temporary lapse
when Arnold Bredewater singled, ad-
vanced on Wayne Hearne's sacrifice,
and trotted home on Ross Dean's base
knock into center.
Meanwhile Bredewater c o a s t e d
along for eight innings allowing only
fiv.e Michigan hits and no runs. It
looked like a certain shuout.
Kremer Homers
Then came the ninth, and Purdue
led off adding another run. Hearne
doubled and scored when Kremer and
Brewer pulled an Alfonse-Gaston on
Dickinson's popper into left. But
Michigan had some hits pent up and
they soon began to explode.
Kremer smashed his tremendous
home run into left center, Smick
promptly singled, and Earl Smith
went in to run for him. Pete Lisagor
sacrificed him to second, and Ged-
eon's big bat sent him home with the
tying run on a single to left.
.That was all until the finish, six
frames later. Both teams got men on
base in this interim, but neither could
push them across. Then came the
15th, the .climax, and the sad con-
clusion of the battle. The teams
meet again today, time 2:30 p.m., and
perhaps a new lease on luck for the
unfortunate local contingent.

Cubs Win 6-4 But Di'
Strains $185,000 Arm
CHICAGO, April 29:-()Dizzy
Dean, the Chicago Cubs' $185,000 plus
three-player pitching asquition, re-
turned to the "sore arm brigade" to-
day after starting his third game, but
the Cubs defeated the Cincinati Reds,
6-4 to sweep the two-gaie series.
Dean, retired after .hurling three
and two-thirds innings and allowing
two hits and a walk. He said he
pulled a muscle in his arm while1
pitching to Lou Riggs in the fourth,
but that he could go on. Managert
Charley Grimm, however, removed
him from the game as a precaution.
Dizzy announced afterward that he
expected to be able to take his regularI
turn on the mound.
The Cub attack included only eight
hits; but three were homers by Gabby2
Hartnett, Tony Lazzeri and Augie
Galan and two others were doubles by
Stan Hack and Billy Herman.;
Netmen Battle
M.S.C. Today
At Palmer Field
Statistics Give Wolverines
Edge Over State Rivals;
Start PlayAt 2:30 P.M.
Michigan's Varsity netters will in-
vade the domain of the Woman's
Athletic Association for the first time
today as Leroy Weir's men take over
the Palmer Field tennis courts for
their meet today. It has been an-
nounced that the remainder of the
meets will be held there withtthe ex-
eption of Monday's Ypsi tilt.
A strong Michigan State team pro-
vides the opposition for the inaugural
Palmer Field contest. Victorious at
last year's meeting between the two
schools, State is considered powerful
enough to repeat. On paper, how-
ever, Michigan is the stronger. The
Varsity boys defeated Kalamazoo
College 7-2, while State's best effort
against the same team only netted
them a 5-4 win.
Varsity Uses Same Lineup
Michigan will probably put to the
courts with much the same lineup
that faced Kalamazoo last Wednes-
day. Playing in the number one spot
will be Capt. Neil Levenson, while
Don Percival will fill the second
singles position.
John Kidwell, Tom Slattery, Hank
Cohen and Steve Woolsey will play
the rest of the singles matches in
that order. Coach Weir will prob-
ably not decide the doubles nomina-
tions till just before match time.
New Courts Will Improve Match
Playing on the Palmer Field courts
should raise the level of both team's
play as the trains, smoke and wind
of Ferry Field made it far from ideal
for tennis.
Spectators will benefit from the
change as well, for the bleachers on
Palmer Field will not face directly
into the sun. The proximity to the
campus too, will undoubtedly result in
a gain in attendance at the matches.
Today's contest is scheduled to start
at 2:30.

In Steeplechase; Kelley,
Medley Team Place
PHILADELPHIA, April 29.-()-,
Records in two relay eventA and two
special college field events went by,
the boards here today as the 44th
Penn Relays Carnival got under way
-but the best any of Coach Charley
Hoyt's Wolverines could do were sec-
onds turned in by Bill Watson in the
shot put and Walt Stone in the 3,000
meter steeplechase. '
The Michigan distance medley re-
lay team of Faulkner, Jester, David-
son and Schwartzkopf placed fourth
as North Texas State Teachers won
the event to set up one of the new
records. Blaine Rideout's 4:10.6 an-
chor mile was the big push for the
Texans as their winning time of
9:59.4 bettered all existing standards
for the event.
Ryan Bests Watson
Bill Watson lost out by only three
inches as Francis Ryan of Columbia.
National and I.C. 4-A champion,
heaved the shot 51 feet 61/ inches
to better the Relays mark for that
sevent. Watson's distance was 51 feet
2% inches as he experienced his first
defeat of the year. Watson also fin-
ished third in the discus throw, sail-
ing the platter 150 feet 8 inches.
Notre Dame' Faymonville, who won
the event with 157 feet 1/2 inches,
set a new Carnival record.
Walt Stone, attempting to repeat
his victory of 1936 in the 3,000 meter
steeplechase, fell before last year's
winner, Tommy Deckard, who won in
9:25.6. Deckard finished all alone as
he led the Wolverine veteran home
by a full lap.
Kelley Salvages Third
Stan Kelley, who put in quite a full
day, salvaged a third place in the 400
meter hurdles as his share of the
spoils. Just failing to qualify in the
120 yard high hurdles, the Michigan
sophomore came back over ,the gruel-
ling' 400 meter distance to place, be-
ind Borican of Virginia State and
evius of Cornell.
The other relay maf-k set up today
was in the sprint medley college relay
as Pittsburgh broke all existing colle-
giate records with a time of 3:24.5.
Olympic 800 meter champion John
Woodruff ripped off a 1:49.9 for his
880 yard anchor as the Panthers de-
fended their title.
Allen Meets Albritton
Michigan's chances 'for a victory
now depend on Jim Kingsley, Fred
Martin, and Wes Allen, who go into
action tomorrow for the first time,
and on the one and two mile relay
Kingsley will run up against tough
competition in the pole vault in
Ganslen of Columbia and Harding of
Yale. Martin's 196 feet 7/ inches
last week in the Indiana Relays
should give him an excellent chance
to place in the javelin throw. Allen
meets up with his old rival Dave
Albritton of Ohio State as well as
Art Burns of Manhattan, Eastern
Intercollegiate high jump champ.

Ends College Mat Career
With Tourney Tonight
Hoping to add another wrestling
title to his credit before officially
$ anging up his suit marking and end-
ing of his college career, John Speich-
er will be after the 126-pound title in
the International Y.M.C.A. tourna-
ment tonight in Detroit.
"Spike" was co-captain along with
Earl Thomas of this year's Confer-
ence championship wrestling team.
So far this season he has taken two
titles, the first in the Big Ten meet,
and the second in the National A.A.U.
tournament, both times in %he 118-
pound class.
Not only will there be teams from
the United States but there will be
men representing Canada, Mexico,
and the Philippines. Due to the fact
that they would lose a year of college
competition by entering the meet the
other mrcnbers of the Wolverine
squad; will not seek any Y.M.C.A.
Coach Cliff Keen and Port Robert-
son of the Wolverine coaching staff
will officiate at the tournament and
Coach Fendley 'Collins of Michigan
State will also assist in refereeing the

Wolverines Face Hoosiers
Today; Purdue Carded
For Monday Tilt'
Michigan's golfers should find little
trouble in defeating Indiana Univer-
sity today at Indianapolis-that is, if
previous scores mean anything. Last
year the Wolverines trounced the
Hoosiers almost as badly as they
licked Wayne here last Monday. But
there's always that margin of doubt
and anyway, previous scores don't
mean anything.
This year Indiana is not the raw in-
experienced outfit it was last. In
fact four of the possible starters
against Michigan today all played in
1937's 22-2 Michigan win.
Meet Purdue Monday
Following the Indiana meet toe
team will immediately leave for La-
fayette where it meets Purdue Univer-
sity Monday afternoon. The early
arrival at Lafayette will enable the
squad to traverse the Boilermakers'
home course Sunday.
Coach Ray Courtright will be
counting as much on this year's new-
comers to the squad as he will on his
two veteran mainstays, Capt. Al Kar-
pinski and Bill Barclay. Karpinski
and Barclay last year took the num-
bers of Ed Eaton and Jack Mueller
quite handily and it's possible that
they'll again come up against the
same pair in their No. 1 and 2

Grand Old Man' Is
67 Years Old Today
Fielding H. Yost reaches another
milestone today. Michigan's "Grand
Old Man" of football is 67 years old.
For 40 years he has been connected
with football. For 37 of them he
has been connected with Michigan.
Yost saw his first football game at
Ohio Northern in X1889 and in 1894
he played his first college game. He
came to Michigan in 1901, when he
established one of the greatest rec-
ords of all time. From 1901, for the
next five years, his teams played 57;
games, losing one and tying one,
while piling up a total of 2,821 points
to 42 for the opposition. Those were
the famous point a minute teams.
The Coach, as he is known, gave
up active coaching in 1926, but has
retained his office of athletic director.
Three years from today he will reach
the University retirement age, but
before that he wants to finish out
40 years of service to Michigan.
