THE MICHIGAN DjXILY
- LIN ES'-
By IRVIN LISAGOR
And The Derby.. .
Well, just about now thousands of
people are piling into Louisville and
millions of dollars are piling into the
bookies. Today is (in case you have
not read the papers lately) the day of
the Kentucky Derby.
Once a year, Louisville is
turned into a carnival town. In
ease you think there is nothing
new under the sun, Pete, you
ought to be in Louisville on Derby
Day. Debutantes and dilettantes,
touts and bookies, governors and
senators, business men on a holi-
day, are all pouring into the
heart of the Bluegrass country to
witness the greatest prize Ameri-
ea has to offer horse racing Fans,
The Kentucky Derby. A World
Series never ad anything on
And every person coming into the
town is there to see the same thing-
the crowning of America's greatest
three-year old. Only this year they
may be disappointed. The reason is
simple, Pete. The best horse isn't in
the race. On Thursday came the
disappointing news that Stagehand,
winner of the Santa Anita Handicap
,and Derby, conqueror of Seabiscuit in
the former, had a fever and would
You can be sure that every other
horse in the race is glad that the
Maxwell Howard owned and Earle
Sande traiued colt is running a fever
instead of them. But with the scratch-
ing of Stagehand, the race takes
startling developments. Fighting Fox
has, become the horse to beat.

The Fox' Is Well Bred ..
It's an old racing adage that
you can't beat breeding and The
Fox has it aplenty. Remember
Gallant Fox, who won the Derby
and the Preakness in 1930? Well,
Pete, Fighting Fox is a full
brother and, if I may coin a
phrase, blood is thicker than wa-
ter. Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons, who
trains him, didn't do so bad with
Gallant Fox, and Omaha, both
Derby winners, and Granville
who won everything but. Odds
aire now 2-1 and might drop low-
By the way, Pete, don't start feel-
ing sorry for Howard and Sande.
They might have the winner in The
Chief. Remember, last week they
said that Sande was going to try to
win with The Chief. Well, it looks as
tho he'll have to now. This horse is
fast getting away from the barrier
and has shown he can keep it up for
a mile. But a mile and a quarter is
a long way and 126 pounds is a lot to
carry when you're trying to beat the
best in the country.
Odds will be about 3-1.
There are lots of whispering about
Bull Lea. The Warren Wright hope
can do it.' He ran away from Menow
in the Bluegrass stakes in record
time, and that race was only 220 yards
shorter than this one. Walter Win-
chell dropped a little hint about this
baby and the price promptly dropped
to 5-2 where it'll stay.
Dauber If It Rains . .
If it rains, Pete, put a couple
of bucks on Dauber. He's the
only mudder in the race, and in
anything more than a heavy dew,
this kid might do It. One dollar
will get you 10 if he gets his snout
You can't discount Menow al-
together. le won $65,825 last year
and was the leading two year old.
That's a lot of dough and the
Hal Price Headley horse must
have had something on the ball
to get it. Well, here's the spot to
show that stuff. 8-1.
Lawrin might be up there. He is
quite a sprinter and if he can carry
the weight over the Derby distance
he'll give his backers eight bucks for
The other four horses are a dime a
dozen and even in this 10-horse field,
are rated very slightly.
Before I give you the winners, which
you must promise not to disclose, I
want to give you a little tip.. Out of
the 63 Derbys, 33 favorites have
copped the win spot. And only 11,
of them ever finished out of the
money. A word to the wise, etc.
The winner will be (don't hold
your breath) Fighting Fox. He's got
too much all around speed and stretch
drive to be headed. In the place
spot will be Bull Lea, who will be
good but not good enough. Then in
the number three position I'll put
Menow with Dauber and The Chief
not far behind.
By the way, Pete, these are subject
to change. My final prediction will
be available early Sunday morning.
Well, I'll see you at the cleaners,
Michigan's undefeated tracksters go
into action against Illinois here this
=afternoon without Harold Davidson,
mile ace, it was announced yesterday
afternoon by Coach Charlie Hoyt.
Davidson will be replaced by crack
sophomore two-miler, Rambling
Ralph Schwarzekopf who last week
stirred the imagination of the coun-
try's track addicts by whipping Don
Lash and Joe McCluskey. It will be
the first time since he entered Var-
*sity competition that the Rambler
has been pressed into action in two
"Davidson has put in a rough sea-
son and is a little tired," said Hoyt
yesterday." We want to have him in
shape for Ohio State and the Con-
ference championships. A rest will
put him right again."
Doug Hayes, Wolverine quartei
miler will also put in a day of com-
parative rest, limiting his activities
to a leg on the one-mile relay. Hayes'
spot in the 440 race will be filled
by up and coming, Jim Rae, newcomer
to the cinder forces, who ripped off
a 49.8 practice quarter this week.
Emer Gedeon, baseballing hurdler
will try his two-sport program foi
the first time today. Gedeon and hi
teammate Stan Kelley are favored tc
place one-two in the high hurdl
with the one liable to fall either way.
After the highs, Gedeon will retire
from the cinder paths to tend first
sack for Ray Fisher's ball team which
plays Indiana today, leaving the lo
hurdles to Kelley and Kutsche.
Baseballers Meet Indiana
A veteran Indiana nine, second in
the Big Ten last season, will attempt
to keep the erratic Wolverines from
making it two straight Conference
victories this afternoon at 2:30 on
Herm Fi hman who southpawed
Michigan to their initial Big Ten vic-
tory, over Purdue last Saturday, is
Coach Ray Fisher's choice to start
on the mound today, with Burt Smith
The Michigan line-up will remain
virtually the same as that which has
started recent games with second base
the only doubtful position. Either
Pete Lisagor or Earl Smith will open
at the keystone spot.
For mound duty, Coach Dean Ev-
erett of the Hoosiers will probably
rely on Lou Grieger, senior right
hander who was second in the Con-
ference earned run averages last sea-
son. In reserve will be Bill Smith,
a promising newcomer and Sewara
Wilshere, brother of the ex-major
Undefeated Golfers Clash
A little stronger opposition than
it has so far seen in the Conference
is due Michigan's golf team today.
Starting at 9 a.m. Michigan meets
Illinois over the University course'
here in.the foursomes, with individual
matches in the afternoon.
Illinois, like Michigan, will be seek-
ing to keep its Big Ten slate clean.
Michigan has won three out of three
while the Illini have taken two for
two. Illinois trounced Purdue and
sneaked past Iowa by a one-point
Captain Al Karpinski and Bill Bar-
clay will be back at No. 1 and 2 for
Michigan. Lynn Riess, Bob Palmer,
and possibly Bill Black will round
out the squad.
Illinois, which for the past two
years has finished third behind Mich-
igan and Northwestern in the Big
Ten, has three lettermen on this
year's squad. Their lineup will in-
clude Johnny Hobart, former State
champ, Ralph Carlson and Ed Hut-
chison, son of the famous Jock. The
remainder of the team will be taken
from John Coghill, Al Billings and
Netters Meet The Champs
Despite Chicago's loss of Bickle and
Burgess, last year's number one and
two men, the Maroons are rated
strong enough to defeat Michigan
with ease when the two teams meet
this afternoon in the Windy City.
As a handicap the Varsity will prob-
ably be playing without the services
of the hard-stroking veteran, Capt.
Neil Levenson, who has been out with
an infected toe. To offset his loss in
the number one position, the lineup
will have to be moved up a notch,
throwing most of the players out of
their class. Main issue of the match
will be to see if Senior Hank Cohen
will keep his winning ways.

Smick's high fly in center, the ball
:ropping safely for a double.
I Ypsi received their first taste of
Wolverine charity in the same inning.
Walsh singled off Peck's glove, took
second on an infield out, third on a
wild pitch, and crossed on Lisagor's
Don Todt's home run, a 318 foot
drive over the left field wall, in the
fourth, and Brewer's single driving in
Pink in the Michigan seventh added
a run apiece.
Michigan wound up its scoring ac-
tivities in the 8th. Peck's double,
Smick's walk, and Lisagor's single
filled the bases. Beebe's walk forcing
in Peck and Andronik's surprising
single brought the tallies home.
Triples by Scripter and Todt, and
Zachar's single adder'. two Ypsi runs
in their half to make it 6 to 4 going
into the ninth.
Then the lid all but blew off. Smick.
and Lisagor gave Everett a two base
life with an Alfonse-Gaston in right
field. An irate Andronik fanned Pok-
rywka and Walsh, and then came the
last straw. Augie DeFroscia hit a
short fly in left, Don Brewer dropped
it, and Everett scored. Thank little
Augie though. He tried to stretch it
and was out, Pink to Lisagor, for the
somewhat painful Wolverine victory.
