Bill Watson And Halcrow,

Only Title Defenders
Coach Charlie Hoyt yesterday
named the 26 man squad which will
defend the Wolverines' Big Ten out-
door track and field title at Colum-
bus this Friday and Saturday.
Those making the trip are Norm
Purucker, Carl and Fred Culver, El-
mer Gedeon, Stan Kelley, John Ku-
tsche, Ross Faulkner, Jim Rae,. Doug
Hayes, Harvey Clarke, Tom Jester,
Dye Hogan, Bill Buchhanan, Ralph
Schwartzkopf, Walt Stone, Harold
Davidson, Jim Kingsley, SandyFar-
rell, Dave Cushing, Wes Allen, Bill
Watson, Jake Townsend, Fred Mar-
tin, Jack Kinsey, Tex Stanton and
Paul Penvenne.
Yesterday's Workout Light
Coach Hoyt put the team through
a light workout yesterday on a heavy
track. Easy quarter-miles were the
order of the day from two-milers
Schwartzkopf and Stone on down.
With the exception of Dave push-
ing, sophomore pole vaulter, who has
a heavily bandaged leg as a result of
a spike wound suffered early in the
week, the squad is in tip-top shape.
Bill Watson, one of the two defend-
ing champions entered in the Colum-
bus meet, will, as usual,, shoulder the
task of adding three first places to
the Wolverines' total., Watson won
the shot put, discus, and broad jump
last year and is an overwhelming fa-
vorite to repeat in the first two. The
"One Man Track Team" will run up
against somewhat stiffer competition
in the broad jump.
Schwartzkopf May Double
Ralph Schwartzkopf is in the ',best
shape of his life" in Hoyt's own words
and if it appears that Michigan will
need extra points after the field
events qualifiers Friday he will start
in both the mile and two-mile.
Stan Kelley and Elmer Gedeon of
the Michigan hurdle forces leave little*
doubt that Michigan will score heav-
ily in both, the high and low stick
events. Fred Martin is also favored
to' annex the javelin, in which he
placed second last year.
George Halcrow of Chicago, besides
Watson the only defending- titlehold-
er, will meet stiff 440 competition
from C. Teufel of Iowa, Howells of
Ohio State, and Hicks of Indiana.
Ross Faulkner cannot be counted out.
The squad will leave early this af-
ternoon for Columbus.

Gets Alumni Award

THE TERRACE ROOM of1

the Union

f housed a cross section of Michi-
gan's 1938 football team yesterday
afternoon in the squad's last offi-
cial meeting of the season. Only a
handful of the men turned out, and
they were rewarded with one of the
most pleasing surprises of the cur-
rent season.
The occasion was the annual award
of the Chicago Alumni Trophy, and
the winner was Archie Kodros, the
husky sophomore center from Alton,
Ill. It was the first time in the 14
year history of the award that any-
one but a freshmen had been so
honored. When Archie's name was
,called by Meyer Morton, represent-
ing the donors, an enthusiastic ap-
plause emanated from his team-
mates scattered about the room. Ko-
dros is the type of fellow who us-
ually rates page one in everyone's
book.
Some conjecture is sure to arise
as to why Kodros received ,the
award with so many eligible re-
cipients on last year's yearling
squad. Further analysis shows,
however, that the chunky little
guy is highly deserving of the
honor. The award is given to the
player showing the greatest im-
provement, m o s t cooperative
spirit, and keenest interest in the
spring drll.
Archie deserves the trophy. He
missed only one session this spring,
and that time he was at, University
Hospital serving as a blood donor. In
practice, he was usually the first man
out and the last to leave. He opened
his ears to advice, kept his mouth
shut, and plugged. That it brought
results is proven by his. selection.
The award is a cheering note
in the Michigan football setup
for next fall. W h Archie click-
ing, and Forest "One Man Gang"
Evashevski pushing him plenty
for the coveted first team berth,
the Wolverine center depart-
ment seems comfortably fixed.
It's a traditional situation, one
which brings back memories of
great Michigan centers of the
past-Germany Schultz, Maynard
Morrison, Chuck Bernard and
others. Kodros and Eashevski
have a real heritage as Michigan
,bl snappers.
Personally, we hope Kodros isn't
superstitious. Ever since Bob Cooper,
a great prospect, had to drop foot-
ball because of injuries, and John
Jordan became ineligible, and Fred-
die Trosko failed to run wild with a
mediocre team in front of him,
campus writers have called the
trophy "The Kiss of Death." What a
charming tag to pin on an award,
the winning of which is only possible
by hard work, ability and spirit. The
clever lads who sweated to invent
this witty label might well turn back
the pages of Michigan football and
survey the past winners. There
they will find an imposing array of
greats, a fitting tribute to the integ-
rity of the selection. That some have
fallen by the wayside can b at-
tributed to nothing more mysterious
or frightening than the law of av-
erages. And it's about time for a
new deal.

Others Given Mention

Kohl. Dave Strong, backfield trans-
fer from Illinois, was the other man
lauded.
According to Kodros the award
came as a surprise. Archie was a
close competitor of Freddie Trosko
for the trophy last year after which
hp put his five feet, eight inches to
work in the fall to take the regular
center job away from Capt. Joe Rin-
aldi.
Archie had been outstanding in
his freshman year as a guard but was
moved over because of a scarcity of
good material at center. He saw yeo-
man service with the Varsity last fall
and this spring has continued to im-
prove-especially in blocking. ,
The honorable mentions include
the cream of the spring crop. Veterans
Janke, Savilla and Nicholson may
prove to be the nucleus of Coach
Clarence Munn's 1938 line. Herc
Renda's indomitable spirit always
marks him as a valuable asset,
The frosh selections represent the
best of the plentiful yearling back-
field material. Harmon and Krom-
er are both triple-threat performers
who can do everything well. Jack
Meyer, 200 pound quarterback, has
looked especially good all spring and
little Harry Kohl, five foot six inch
quarterback from Dayton, Ohio, is
fast and plays like a second Renda.
Dave Strong, who was Illinois' regu-
lar quarterback in 1936, has been
playing at tailback this spring and
has proved his all-round abilities.

Luck Of Draw
May Determine
FinalStanding
Cicago'&Certain To Retain
Crown; Michigan Fights
For Third Position
With the luck of the draw almost
'certain to play a major role in deter-
mining the final standing of Michi-
gan's tennis team in this year's three-
day conference tourney, Coach Leroy
Weir and seven netmen tuill begin
their quest for third place today.
Chicago, who each year in this
tourney reverses its customary posi-
tion as doormat for its Big Ten foes,
is almost certain to retain the Big
Ten diadem they won here last year.
Almost as sure of the runner-up spot
is Northwestern, whose only Con-
ference defeat was suffered at the
hands of Chicago, 9-0.
Real Fight For Third
The real fight should come for the
third position with Michigan, Minne-
sota and possibly Iowa as the contes-
tants. It is here that the luck of the
draw will play so important a part.
According to a new Conference rul-
ing, a board of coaches will seed four
players in each of the six singles divi-
sions and three teams in the doubles
groups on the basis of pre-season
play. These four seeded players will
meet the four unseeded players in
the first round matches. With each
victory counting as one point toward
the final team total, the seeded play-
ers have a decided advantage.
Due to the top-heavy strength of
both Chicago and Northwestern in
most of the divisions, the team whose
players are either seeded or are not
drawn to meet one of the favorites, is
the team most likely to end up in
third place.
Cohen Is Chief Hope
Among the Michigan players, Hank
Cohen is most likely to be seeded
and most likely to become a title-
winner. Playing as number five man
during the season, Cohen dropped but
one of his six Big Ten matches. Hank's
competition should come from Levy
of Minnesota and Northwestern's
Duddleston
Don Percival and John Kidwell,
playing in the two and three spot re-
spectively, are the only other varsity
men likely to be rankedbAlthough
none of the Wolverine doubles teams
are in danger of being seeded, Weir
expects the newly formed Kidwell-
Cohen combination to garner some
points and possibly a title in the sec-
ond doubles.
Coach Weir will have Capt. Neil
Levenson, Don Percival, John Kid-
well, Steve Woolsey, Hank Cohen and
Ed Morris playing the six singles po-
sitions in that order and Levenson-
Morris, Kidwell-Cohen, Woolsey-Slat-
tery combines working in the doubles
play.
Ferrell Hurls Senators
To 5-1 Win Over Detroit
DETROIT, May 18.-(AP)-Allowing
but six hits, Wesley Ferrell pitched
the Washington Senators to a 5-to-1
victory over the Detroit Tigers today.
Ferrell aided his own cause with a
homer with the bases empty in the
fifth. He was deprived of a shutout
when Chester Laabs homered for De-
troit in the seventh.

Pondering Ray
Picks Tussing
For Fifth Man
By IRVING GERSON
Who's going to Minneapolis?
Golf Coach Ray Courtright has
been pondering this question for the
past week.
Members of the varsity golf squad
have been speculating as to which
one of them would be selected for the
coveted fifth position on the team
that will play in the Big Ten meet,
May 23, 24 in the Minnesota city.
Last night Coach Courtright talked
it over with Prof.-Emeritus Thomas
Trueblood, former golf coach and
now a constant observer of the team.
Who would it be? F
Four Were Cinches
Capt. Al Karpinski, veteran Bill
Barclay, and sophomores Lynn Riess
and Bob Palmer were sure to make
the trip on the basis of their early
season showings and their known
ability.
The two coaches, past and present,
decided that they wanted a golfer
who had exhibited steadiness in medal
play for the all-important meet con-
sists of two days medal play of 36
holes each day. Five men playing,
the four lowest scores to count.
Down the list of eligible men they
went, cutting for one reason or an-
other; for example, Bill Black, a very
promising sophomore was sick last
week and due to the layoff lost his
polish. Bill Yearnd, senior letterman,
was eliminated because of his erratic
tendency although he is considered
a very good match player.
Others Eliminated
Then there is Jim Loar and Fred
Schwarze, Ken Johnson and Bill War-
ren and several others but they were
eliminated in favor of a sophomore,
who, according to Coach Courtright,
has played very steady golf through-
out the spring season. Yes, Tom Tus-
sing has been selected to play fifth
