ning When the squad will assemble
for the final time before the opening
of practice next fall.
Although not of first importance in
the choice of the award winner, to-
day's scrimmage may -be a deciding
factor in the final count. The field
is wide open since the correct inter-
pretation of the rules governing the
choice makes any man on the squad
eligible.- For the past several years
only freshmen have been included.
Crisler has made no decision as to
whom he will start in the game but
k t is certain that most of the men
will get a crack at the opponent.
Briefly, .the Yellow squad consists
of Vince Valek, Bill Parfet and Chuck
Steketee ends, Capt. Fred Janke and
Joe Savilla tackles, Fred Olds and
Ralph Heikkinen guards, Horace Tin-
ker center and Wally Hook, Harry
Mulholland, Derwood Laskey, Paul
Kromer and Jack Meyer in the back-
Renda On Blue Team
The Blue outfit lists John Nichol-
son, Ed Fruitig and Ed Czak at ends,
Bill Smith and Bob Flora at tackles
Butch Jordan and Jack Brennan at
guards, Archie Kodros at center and
Tom Harmon, Dave Strong, Hercules
Renda and Ed Phillips in the back-
field. , ,
Crisler stated that the teams would
use straight football for the most part
but hinted that the spectators might
writness , some play of a more open
Yariety. It is certain, however, that
neither of the teams will "open up"
with all of the plays on the do et.
yBoth, squads tapered off yesterday
afternoon with light signal and run-
ning drills. No contact work was
included in the workout, however.

Purdue Overcomes Deficil
To Win Over Wirmen
With a 5-3 advantage to work with
Michigan's number two doubles team
of Steve Woolsey and John Kidwel
went to pieces, in the third set and
the Wolverines lost their fourth
straight Conference match by a 4-3
score to Purdue yesterday afternoon
at Palmer, Field.
The Boilermakers swept the doubles
matches, Charles Mann and Dave
Blitz taking the number two match in
spite of the Kidwell-Woolsey seconc
set rally, and Herbert Fuente and
Leon Gardner picking up an early lag
to defeat Don Percival and Hank
Cohen, in the Wolverine number one
pOsition, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.
Cohen Wins In Singles
Fuente and Gardner both went
strong, and accounted for Boiler-
maker wins in the singles matches
as well. Fuente allowed Michigan's
Capt. Neil Levenson four games as his
steadiness forced Levenson into errors
continuously in the number onc
singles match. Gardner downed Ed
Morris 6-4, 6-3. .
In the only three~ set match ir
the singles bracket, Kidwell finally
broke through in a close 6-4 set to
down Purdue's Dave Blitz 6-1, 3-6,
6-4 in one of the drawn out matches

of the afternoon.
Hank Cohen, one of the Varsity
squad's most persistent winners,
played his usual hard-hitting game
to defeat Charles Mann, the latter
going to pieces before his consistent
drive. Steve Woolsey, seeded numbei
five, easily downed Orea Jackson 6-2

Adieu And So What..
WHEN WE TACK A "30" onto this piece, "Aside Lines" will be outward
bound to join its predecessors in the musty Daily "morgue" - there
to recount experiences with the columnar corpses of John Thomas, Al New-
man, Art Carstens, Bill Reed and George Andros.
Traditionally this is the night when the outgoing editors go literary
and drip with maudlin memories of the year just past. But because
fortuitous circumstances made us a victim of the so-what school of
sports writing, and because the men on desk tonight are classic scof-
fers themselves, we fear the general reaction of -a valedictory effort
radiating sweetness and light. And besides, something about the
pungent aroma of the arena and the primitive habits of an athlete
makes sentiment a doubtful quality in this craft.
How then to end this tenure? Maybe it is meet to leave our successor with
a few words of advice. We could tell him for instance, to beware of the
imbibing informer, who will confess tonight what he will deny until death
tomorrow. We could tell him to avoid the mistaken notion that college=
football still retains its amateur status. It's big business-the palpable
exploitation of the amateur, purists say what they will. A coach is fired by
his superiors, and newspapers immediately get all inked up with indigna-
tion because their readers-"taxpayers who support the university"-demand
to know the cause. Yes, we could advise him, but advice is cheap.
We might end this by recalling those ephemeral moments of jour-
nalistic glory, when the Daily scored a scoop in l'affaire Kipke, or aroused
a storm of righteous protest with its copyrighted story that Tom Harmon,
a great football prospect, had been besieged with "offers" to attend various
seats of learning for their superior educational facilities, ha!
We might review the most turbulent era in Michigan's athletic
history, when insinuations, innuendoes, charges and counter-charges
swept staid Ann Arbor, when football coaches were fired and hired
with Hollywoodian gusto. We might express the regrets of a visiting
coach at the time that Michigan, seat of a proud heritage, should be
subjected to the suspicions of an "athletic factory." But that is so much
water under the bridge -- and better forgotten.
Before ripping this sheet from our typewriter for the last time we might
snatch from memory a few striking scenes, indexed for convenience: An
amusing sight: Cedric Sweet stumbling 60 yards against Minnesota in '35;
a poem in motion: Adolph Kiefer, backstroking in the A.A.U. meet this
spring; a vicious performance: Don Siegel literally ripping up the North-
western forward wall with his huge hands last Fall; the best crack in com-j
petition: Norm Purucker's, after fumbling thrice in punt formation in a
quagmire against Pennsylvania, then getting off a beautiful boot-"I wanted
to see howa4t felt to kick under pressurb"; individual brilliance: Jake Town-
send uncorking his magic on the basketball floor; ad infinitum.
O BE GRANTED THIS SPACE for observations, opinions and occasional
bits of news has been a privilege which we appreciate. Our 'colleagues
have been cooperative, extremely helpful. Misunderstandings among the.
coaches have been unavoidable, but on the whole they have been tolerant;
And the athletes-well, they made the job a pleasure. Copy boy!

Squad Battles
Undefeated Hoytmen Have
Edge Over Weakened
Rivals At Colhhus
COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 13.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily)-Despite an in-
creased show of power in the last
two weeks, Ohio State's track team
was tonight rated little better than a
sparring partner in their dual meet
here tomorrow with Michigan's un-
defeated steamroller of the cinder
With little chance of a team tri-
umph, the Bucks appeared almost
certain of wins in the quarter, both
sprints and the high jump. Harley
Howells is the likely choice in the
440 with Bob Lewis the favorite in
the century and furlong and Co-Cap-
tain Dave Albritton, Olympic runner-
up, despite able opposition by Michi-
gan's Wes Allen who has two ties on
the Ohio star.
Albritton, Allen Meet Again .
Three Wolverines, Watsgn, Kelley
and Schwarzkopf command the bulk
of the Wolverine power. Big Bill
Watson will work his customary four
events, the discus, shot, broad jump
and high jump. 10 points should be
his portion in the first two with the
outcome in the broadjump in doubt
after his 23 foot performance last
week and the long distance efforts of
BuckeyeChuck Walker to overcome.
With Walker, Albritton and Allen in
the high jump, there is little chance
that "the one man track team" will
finish in the money.
Kelley is the Michigan bet to dom-
inate the high and low hurdles while
Schwarzkopf will be looking to avenge
his indoor defeat at the hands of Paul
Benner, O.S.U. two-miler. Schwarz-
kopf may also start in the mile with
Harold Davidson, whose desultory ef-
forts in the last month have made
him the meet's question mark after
a lay-off left him out of the Illinois
meet last week.

To Compete For Awards
Promptly at 10 a.m. today the first

Five man teams will play with the
four lowest scores counting. To the

the last two years, and which the
Phi Psi's will keep permanently if
they win today.
Teams representing professional
Greek letter societies will also vie for
a cup which is being put up for the

Baseball TeamI
Fishman Hurls A Shutout;
Second Game Today
(Continued froi. Page 1)
Don Brewer sacrificed with a bunt
down the third base line. Glenn Poff
came in to field the ball and little
Charley kept the throttle wide open
around second base to end up on
third. It was a foreshadowing of
what was to come.
.Pink Fast On Bases
Walt Peckinpaugh then bounded
to Bill Laybourne at first base. Bill
was at the edge of the grass and
could have made a play on Pink easily
had Charley set sail. But Pink was
Mtill "heads up." He pranced up and
down that baseline, far enough off to
be dangerous, close enough to the bag
to be safe. Laybourne, in disgust,
turned his back and made the play
at first unassisted. When he looked
'ack, Charley had scored.
It was like that all the way. The
only times State even murmurred
were in the third and fourth. And
both threats were stifled in the same
way, two great throws by Danny
Smick and Capt. Butch Kremer nab-
bing runners trying to score on team-
mates' hits. State protested both de-
:isions vehemently, but in vain. It
wouldn't have made much difference
the way Fishman was pitching.
Fishman Fans Seven
Herm walked three and fanned sev-
en in his sterling performance. Twice
he whiffed Bill Laybourne, last year's
Conference batting champ.
Michigan scored three more runs
in the third to widen Herm's margin.
Brewer and Kremer walked, and
Smick sent Don across with a single
to left. Lisagor then hit to Haas,
who bobbled, and Butch crossed.
Beebe's bounder to short took a bad
bounce for a hit, sending Smick over
with the third tally.
They added their final pair of runs
-in the seventh. With one out, Kre-
mer nicked an infield single past
Buckeye pitcher Mark Kilmer. He
went to second on Smick's infield out
and advanced to third on a wild
pitch. Elmer Gedeon then socked a
long triple into center field and when
the relay was fumbled, Elmer came
all the way home-in about nothing
The teams play again today at 2:30
p.m. Burt Smith will pitch for Michi-
gan. Johnny Dagenhard for Ohio.

Don Budge Eyes
Net Grand Slam
California Star Admits'
Broad Aspirations
NEW YORK, May 13.-()-A
grand slam in tennis, something not
even Big Bill Tilden achieved in his'
prime, is the goal of Don Budge. The
California redhead, in town with the
world's foremost tennis ar.mament,
confessed he cherished the ambition
to become the only player in history
to hold at one time all four titles-
American, British, Australian and
Budge has a fair start, for since
last July he has captured the cham-
pionship of the United States, Great
Britain and Australia and now would
like to add the French crown to his
trophy room.
If he competes in the French tour-
ney, Don should be a heavy favorite.
The French have some fair young
players but no one capable of extend-
ing the redhead from California.
Besides being a triple champion,
Budge as the mainspring of the de-
fending Davis Cup team. The trophy
is not often out of his thoughts, for
one of the first things he did when
he arrived in company with his
doubles partner, Gene Mako, was to
predict that Sidney B. Wood, Jr.,
would make a strong bid for the cup
All Wood has to do is prove he
is superior to Frankie Parker, Bobby
Riggs and Bitsy Grant the three play-
ers most often mentioned in connec-
tion with the second singles berth.
Fast Field To Run
In Preakness Race
BALTIMORE, May 13.-(A)-The
Preakness, second of the turf's spring
classics comprising the "triple crown,"
will be run for the 48th time tomor-
row with 10 colts and a lone filly
primed to test speed and stamina over
Pimlico's mile and three-sixteenths
for the three-year-old division's rich-
est pot of gold.
Although robbed of some of its in-
terest by the absence of Lawrin, Ken-
tucky Derby winner, and Stagehand,
future book favorite, the race figures
to attract a near-record crowd of
45,000 to the picturesque course on
the outskirts of the city.

Spartans Will Be Tough
Foes At Lansing
Michigan needs a win today in
order to break even with Michigan
State in their second golf meeting
of the year, but the outlook for the
Wolverines is rather grayish. The
matches will be held in East Lansing.
Michigan State has a powerful team
--it has beaten some of the best col-
lege golf outfits in the country. Mich-
igan was given its first defeat of the
home season by the Spartans last
month, 1112 to 6%/2. Not only that,
but State knocked off Northwestern
last Saturday, and Northwestern
turned around Monday and trimmed
the Wolverines.
Michigan Lineup Altered
Michigan will be using a slightly
altered lineup today. Instead of Bill
Yearnd being at the No. 4 slot, Coach
Courtright will use Bob Palmer. Pal-
mer did not play against State.
Bill Barclay will be the Michigan
first starter and will likely be pitted
against Ed Flowers.. Flowers took
three points from Barclay in their
last meeting although both shot
around in 76.
Al Karpinski is due at the No. 2
opponent may be shifted. Tommy
position, but his former Spartan op-
ponent may be shifted. Tommy
Brand, who shot a 70 here, might be
moved up from State's No. 3 rung to
face Karpinski. If he is, Lynn Riess
will have Roy Nelson to play against.
Palmer and Bud Tansey will com-
plete the rosters for both teams. Bill
Black and Tom Tussing will also be
at the course for it is uncertain that
they will play in the Varsity matches.
Spring Drills Wind Up
At Michigan State, Too
The stress of hunting football talent
among 153 aspirants today drew near
a close for Coach Charley Bachman
and his staff of Michigan State Col-
lege coaches.
The college's most successful spring
football training period will end for-
mally Saturday with a regulation
game at Macklin Field. Bachman in-
dicated he has learned all he expects
to about his squad and will simply
let the fans have a chance to do
their own second guessing.
