Illinois Strong
In Mile Relay,
SpringEvents
Schwarzkopf Will Attack
Two Mile Mark; Gedeon
To Run AndPlay Ball
Michigan's undefeated track team
returns to the home cinders for the
first and last time of the outdoor
campaign Saturday afternoon when
they take on the University of Illinois
at Ferry Field.
It will be the first time the local
customers have had a chance to wit-
ness Chuck Hoyt's powerhouse in ac-
tion since the Wolverines laced Ohio
State at the outset of a brilliant in-
door season. The prospet is appe-
tizing to those who have heard much
but seen little of Maize and Blue track
prowess this season.
Michigan Favorite
Michigan goes into their home op-
ener a smart money favorite on their
past record. Illinois, always an im-
proved team outdoors, will be no
soft touch. It will be a wide open
affair the whole afternoon with the
Illini looming in the sprints, mile
relay, hurdles and high jump.
The mace of the day is slated for
the meet finale pitting Illinois' high
geared mile relay against Michigan's
vastly improved foursome. At the
Drake Relays last week the Illinois
quartet of Gains, Downs, McCown
and Ashly snared fourth. Their pace,
however, was not as important from
the Michigan angle as the fact that
they negotiated the route in 3:16.2.
Illini Milers Strong
Illinois already holds one decision
over the Hoyt mile crew which placed
fourth behind the Illini at the indoor
Conference championships. No mile
team that Charlie Hoyt has been able
to tack together so far this season has
bettered 3:20.
Michigan's quarter milers, on the
other hand, have apparently galvan-
ized into action since their Penn Re-
lays junket. Should Faulkner, Hayes,
Clarke and either Jim Rae or Waldo
Abbot fullfill this week's practice
promise the mile relay will only add
another five points to the Michigan
total.

New Marks Expected
The. predicted sell-out crowd can
look forward to the probability of at
least one event producing a new mark
as Rambling Ralph Schwarzkopf
swings into action in the two-mile.
The Sophomore distance sensation,
who last week flabbergasted Eastern
track experts by outracing Don Lash
and Joe McClusky at Penn, will be a
practical certainty to wipe out Walt
Stone's Michigan mark of 9:31 which
the veteran put on the books in 1935.
The 120-yard high hurdles offers
one of the best dual meet fields ever
to appear at Michigan. Two Big Ten
indoor champions ' and a man who
has beaten both of them are slated
to settle up as Elmer Gedeon, and
Stan Kelley for Michigan and Jack
Robinson of Illinois take their marks.
Gedeon To Run, Play Ball
Gedeon and Robinson are the loop
title holders, Gedeon this year and
Robinson in 1937. Silent Stan Kel-
ley is the timber topper who has a
win over both of his competitors.
Kelley took a perlim heat from Rob-
inson at the indoor conference meet
and was well ahead of the Illini ace
in the semi-finals when a fall elim-
inated him from the race and finals.
Kelley took a prelim heat from Rob-
race at Cleveland after the close of
the indoor season.
Gedeon's "two-sports on the same
afternoon" program goes into effect
Saturday when he runs the highs and
immediately afterwards gets into
baseball cloths to attend his first-
base post when the ball team takes
on Indiana. It will be his initial out-
door race of the season and his first
flight of hurdles since the Cleveland
exhibition in March.

wholesale lots and won't sacrifice aj
man to second in the first seven in-
nings. Terry, on the other hand, al-
ways plays for the run, and then re-,
sorts to strict defensive tactics to
protect it. And the latter will yank
even Hubbell at the slightest sign of
weakening, whereas The Yankee
m-g-r will permit his pitchers to be
maimed before salvaging 'em.
Considine also makes the shock-
ing assertion that the umpire be-
hind the plate rarely sees the
plate and must guess on the
pitches 90 per cent of the time.
Would Ernie Vick agree with
him? Not content with the
charge alone, Considine offers an
illustration.
" ... Drop a hat on the floor and
ask a friend of similar height and
heft to stand a yard behind it. Now
you stand about a foot behind your
friend, and see if you can see the
hat." To your likely comeback that
the catcher assumes a squatting posi-
tion, the writer points to the straight-
legged and only slightly bent stance
of the backstop after his signal has
been given.'
What do the umps do, then?
" ... picture an imaginary hoop,
out in front of the plate. Any
ball that enters the visionary ring
-which is as wide as home plate
and extends from the player's
knees to his chest-must be a
strike. Any pitch that doesn't
shoot through the non-existent
hoop must, therefore, be a ball."
Considine then relates how many
of the present rules came to be writ-
ten. Why, for instance, won't the
American League permit its players to
talk to the fans? Well, a few years
ago a ball player posed for a picture
with his arm around Alcatraz Al, Ca-
pone, and the moguls didn't like it.
The Black Sox scandal is still too
poignant a memory.
Did you know, too, that an umpire
cannot rule on three common infrac-
tions of the rules unless the oppos-
ing players spot them. The infrac-
tions are: If a team bats out of order
(remember Purdue!), or if a player
forgets to tag a base, or leaves a
base too soon when attempting to ad-
vance after a long outfield fly has
been caught. His nibs, the umpire,

DOTS AND DASHES-Old Alex
(I'm Hungry) Loiko, who created a
mild furore around here two years
ago by withdrawing "to go home to
dinner," is doing right well at Wes-
tern State Teachers in Kalamazoo . .
.. He participates in football, basket-
ball and track . . . and has a good
(locker room) job, something he
couldn't find here'. . .
Leo Beebe, Varsity catcher, has a
fin bet with cocky Howard Zachar,
star flinger for the Ypsilanti Hurons,
whom Michigan plays tomorrow .-.
It is reported that Zachar was once so
certain he'd fan the side he signalled
(ala Rube Waddell) his outfield to
sit down while he proceeded to retire
the side . .. He pitched the 12-inning
0-0 game against Wisconsin recently.
Gridders Strip
For Hot Spell
Shoulder Pads, Jerseys
Discarded In Practice
No, Gypsy Rose Lee is not a mem-
ber of the Wolverine grid coaching
staff and Coach Fritz Crisler's charges
haven't taken up the strip tease, but
an unknown individual witnessing the
drills of the last two days might
draw some such conclusions.
It's the heat. The gridders have
gone native in an attempt o find
some measure of comfort as they ca-
vort through their daily workouts
under the tropical sun.
Shoulder pads and jerseys were
cast aside during the last two days'
sessions as the dripping footballers
stripped to the waist trying to keep
cool.
Varsity Manager Phil Woodwdrth
indicated that he was in the market
for any kind of air conditioning
equipment that could be put in op-
eration on the football field

ing regularity, and Barry had to be
called to the rescue.
Unheralded by advance motives,
Barry pitched the rest of the game,
and his work was a thing of beauty.
He gave up four hits, only two of
them clean blows, walked but three,
and struck out seven. Given support
he would have breezed through.
Michigan's early lead was sparked
by the two big bats of Elmer Gedeon
and Dan Smick. Elmer slapped a
home run and two singles while Dan-
ny blasted a homer and a triple. The
two homers pushed across three runs
all that Michigan could garner off
Smith.
The Varsity batted around to score
five runs in the first. Walks to Don
Brewer and Capt. Butch Kremer,
singles by Walt Peckinpaugh, Ged-
eon, and Leo Beebe, and Smick's
crashing triple did the damage.
In the Toledo second, Dobson's
wildness resulted in two Toledo runs.
He walked Marty Slovak, Fred Drafts
and Joe Green and allowed Johnny
Condon an infield single in that
frame.
Smick's walk and Gedeon's homerr
added two Wolverine runs in the
third, and Danny's homer completed
the Michigan scoring in the fifth.
Dobson couldn't get them over in
the sixth. Pitcher Smith and Dick
Craig, Negro first baseman, were
passed, which, along with Dale Crow's
single, ended Dobson's efforts for the
day. Barry entered, forced Bill Kap-
ella to bound to second, but the Wol-
verines missed up on both ends of
an attempted double play and the
first run scored. A pass to Drafts
