A-Well, he caught one of Rigney's

LA FAYETTE, Ind. May 2. -
(Special to The Daily)-Michigan

at the West Lafayette Country Club
today as it trampled Purdue 16-5 inI
its third Big Ten golf meet of the1
season. The Wolverines now have a
record of three wins and no losses inI

Lynn Riess, Michigan's No. 3, took
low medal honors with a one over par
73 but was closely followed by Capt.
Al Karpinski with a 74 and by the
rest of the team, none of whom shot
out of the 70's.
The best ball matches found Michi-
gan dropping four points. The one-
two Karpinski-Bill Barclay duo were
blanked by Freese and David in the
morning round and the Riess-Pete
Palmer couple let a point fall to Pur-
due's Anderson-Bask team.
Karpinski Is Winner
Karpinski started off the proceed-
ings in the afternoon rounds to defeat
John David with his 74. Barclay fol-
lowed with a 75 to shut-out Capt.
Karl Freese. Riess then white-
washed Gene Anderson with his 73
as Palmer's 75 gave him a two-stroke
edge for another shut-out over Len
Baske. Tom Tussing, No. 5, had a 77
but dropped a point to Peterson kith
a 79, 2-1.
"The Michigan squad returns to Ann
Arbor Tuesday morning and prepares
for three matches against Wayne,
Illinois and Northwestern the latter
part of the week.

NEW YORK, May 2.--(P)-Burgess
Whitehead, the New York Giants'
regular second baseman, will be lost
to the team indefinitely,

It was a wild week-end for the little
troup of wandering tracksters that
invaded famed Franklin Field for the
44th running of the Penn Relays.
Michigan came through alright.. .
but they didn't come through in the
good old Michigan manner. Michigan
is a form horse. Charlie Hoyt's teams
can be predicted with accuracy. If
Michigan is slated to take an event

there is that old bromide to the effect
that "when its close, bet on Michi-

ones. Take a look at these Michigan
performances. They may be the
shadow of things to come.
Fal Down In Relays
Michigan's relay forces after show-
ing brilliantly during the indoor sea-
son, faltered and all but flopped at
Penn. The distance medley brought
home a fourth and the two-mile
team caught a third'.
Big Bill Watson faIled by inches to
win his best event, the shot put, sur-
passed himself on every throw, but,
according to Charlie Hoyt, was tight
and stiff doing it. Disgruntled, the
mighty Negro ace outdid himself on
Saturday to win the broad jump with
a leap one half inch off 25 feet even.
His effort was the second, best ever
chalked up on Franklin Field. Eulace
Peacock of Temple bettered the mark
by a small margin two years ago.
Sehwar~kopf Upsets
Ralph Schwarzkopf pulled the big-
gest track upset of the year when he
flAshed out of comparative obscurity
to trim Don. Lash and Old Joe Mc-
Clusky. chwarzkopf barely man-
aged to get in the race.
Wes Allen, sophomore high jump
ace, failed to place after dogging the
heals of Dave Albritton of Ohio State
all season. The usually smooth Allen
was off in his timing to such an ex-
tent that after clearing the bar he
would knock it off -with his elbow on
the roll4

Meanwhile the yearlings hopped on
the offerings of Jack Barry and John
Heering for 10 solid blows, including
a long triple by Bill Steffon and a
double by Lou Held.
Leading the freshman attack were
Steffon, second baseman, and Howard
Mehaf fey, chatcher. The former
pounded out a brace of singles in addi-
tion to his three base knock, while
the ex-Kiski grid star added two
singles to the yearlings' total.
Earl Smith, diminutive shortstop,
was the only Varsity man to solve the
frosh hurling with any degree of suc-
cess, slapping a mighty home run: in
the third inning as well as a single.
Both hits were made off Veigel, being
the only two the starting freshman
hurler allowed.
During the five innings he worked,
Karwales held the upperclassmen
scoreless, allowing only t o clean hits,
those by Heering and Forest Evashev-
ski. Joe Goldberg's scratch single
completed the reserves' hit total.
Showing a fine fast ball as well as
a sharp breaking curve, the big Chi-
cago freshman struck out six men,.and
in two successive innings pitched him-
self out of holes, retiring the side after
loading the bases by his wildness.


Kelley Carries On
Stan Kelley missed the boat in the
120-yard high hurdles but surprised
one and all by finishing third in the
gruelling 400-meter hurdle race.
Jimmie Kingsley tied for third in the
pole-vault with his best vault of the
year-13 feet 3 inches. Fred Martin
realized his life )ambition by hurling
the javelin better than 200 feet to
place third. It was no fluke throw as
he bettered 195 on every throw.
Walt Stone, who won the Penn
steeplechase title in 1936, returned to
the scene of his triumph to attempt to
reclaim from Indiana's Tommie Deck-
ard the crown which Stone did not
defend last year. The diminutive
Hoosier footracer was too much for
Walter who finished second as Tom-
mie repeated his last year's win.

Smith will Hurl
Today's mound assignment goes to
veteran, right-hander Smith, who
hurled so impressively in the first
Purdue game. Little Bucko pitched
five hitless innings against the Boil-
ermakers, yielded two hits and a run
in the sixth, and breezed through a
hitless seventh before he retired in
favor of a pinch hitter.
Smith had plenty'thatcold Friday
afternoon and should his performance
today show equal prowess, he is likely
to draw the starting assignment in the
Indiana game Saturday.
Today's Lineup
The lineup which started against
Purdue in the second game is intact
for today's tussle. In batting order,
the Wolverines will line up as follows:
Pink, cf; Brewer, ss; Peckinpaugh,
3b; Kremer, lf; Smick, rf; Gedeon,
1b; Lisagor, 2b; Beebe, c; and Smith,
Tomorrow the Wolverines tackle
Toledo University at the Ferry Field
diamond. Russ Dobson, out of action
since the southern swing with a sore
arm, will start in the box for the
locals. Coached by Dave Connely,
the Toledo aggregation has won four
out of five games this year.

CLEVELAND, May 2.-(A')-The
Cleveland Indians took to the war-
path today in a manner befitting' a
first place club. In the small matter
of one inning-the fourth-they
shelled three Detroit pitchers for nine
hits and ten runs. The final score,
the Tigers admitted tonight, was 11-3.
The Tribe batted around 1 1-3
times in its big inning, knocking out
Jake Wade, who started and was the
official loser; Harry Eisenstat and Al
Woodrow Davis finished for De-
troit, taking over at the start of the
fifth. Johnny Allen was the winning
ST. LOUIS, May 2.-( P)-Despite
three Cub home
runs, the St. Louis
Cardinals beat Chi-
cago 6 to 3 today
with a 4-run, 8th
inning rally which
featured Joe Med-
wick's homer.
. .. It was the Car-
dinals' fourth vic
tory of the season,
with Lon Warneke
the winning hurler.
Consecutive home
runs by Ripper Col-
lins and Frank Demaree in the fourth
put Chicago ahead..
In the first of the eighth Collins
hit another homer.
BOSTON, May 2.-()-The Boston
Red Sox hammered Harry Kelley, Ed-
gar Smith and Almon Williams for 13
hits and as many runs in the first

three innings today to rout the Phila-
delphia Athletics, 13 to 1.
Meanwhile John (Footsie) Marcum
held the A's to one unearned run,
which came in the fourth after one of
four errors by Pinky Higgins. The
Sox infielder thereby tied an Ameri-
can League record for third basemen.
WASHINGTON, May 2.-(jP)-Giv-
en a severe shaking-up by Manager
Joe McCarthy, the New York Yan-
kees came through with 10 hits today
and just managed to nose out the
Senators, 3 to 2. Joe DiMaggio hit
his second home run in two days in
the fourth inning.
NEW YORK, May 2.--(R)-The Gi-
ants ran their winning streak to 11
straight today as they swept a three-
game series with the Brooklyn Dod-
gers by taking the finale, 7 to 4. Cliff
Melton pitched six-hit ball to hang
up his fourth victory, while Jim
Ripple and Hank Leiber clouted their
fourth homers of the campaign.
