Round Number Two ...
Here is the second installment of
the Phil Diamond-Corner battle of
times and distances for Saturday's
Big Ten track meet. This Corner's
predictions appeared in yesterday's
edition and today we present Phil
Mr. Diamond, an instructor in the
German department, is .one of the
outstanding track critics and diag-
nosticians in the Middlewest. Each
year he presents his appraisals (in
advance) and each year they are re-
markably acute and correct. In the
indoor Big Tens last March, he called
the Wolverines with 39 points and
they annexed 41. Two years ago, at
the outdoor meet here, he predicted
Michigan would gain 59 points and
they took 60. But at any rate, he has
a reputation to maintain while we
have nothing to lose but our chains.

The deadlock was short-lived, how-
ever, as Frank Fust opened the Goph-

Smick for a walk. The visitor's catch-
er immediately rode home ahead of.

Varsity Pulls Double Steal
Michigan got back a run in the
third when Fred Trosko walked,
Smick singled Freddie to third, and
with two outs, both players executed
a neat double steal.
But the fifth inning found Smick's
wildness resulting in what ultimate-
ly turned out to be the winning Goph-
er run. Boerner scratched a hit to
Lisagor, Grossman singled to center-
field and Boerner was safe at third
when Peckinpaugh dropped the re-
layed throw from the outfield. Smick
then walked George Masologites and
George Sweeney to force across
Minnesota's fifth run.
Seventh Inning Rallies
In the last of the seventh the Wol-
verines started an uprising that ap-
peared to have the Varsity headed
for victory; Pink beat out his second
bunt of the afternoon and went. to
second, when Kundla missed Sowa's
throw to pick Charlie off base. Sofiak
drilled a hit to center to score Pink,
and Peckinpaugh sent Mike to third
on a single to right-field.
With men on 'first and third, one
ont, and Gedeon at bat, Peckinpaugh
broke 'for second base. When Catcher
Fust threw to second, Sofiak foolishly
attemptedi to come home on the play,
and was immediately trapped and run
down between third and home to
squelch the rally. ''

In his initial appearance as a pro-

dispose of Freddie Hollis of Kitchen-

face a much tougher foe. The Sagi-

emerged victorious six of them, the

ond and has been approached by
Ross Faulkner of Michigan, second
last year, Harley Howell, defending
champion, and Jack Sulzman of Ohio.
and Phil Balyeat of Michigan.
Relay Mark In Danger
The mile relay should be one of
the best events of the two-day meet.
Michigan's quartet of Jack Leutritz,
Faulkner, Balyeat and Breidenbach
ran 3:13.9 last week against Ohio to
better the mark of 3:15.2 set by Mich-
igan in 1935. Ohio's team ran the
distance in 3:14.1 in winning the
event at the Drake Relays April 29.
Wisconsin's Milt Padway will lead
the strongest pole vault field in Big
Ten history. Padway, who shared the
title last year with Michigan's Jim
Kingsley, has gone far over Van Mc-
Dermott's mark of 13 ft. 10 3/8 in. set
in 1930. Padway holds the Confer-
ence indoor record of 14 ft. 1 5/8 in.
Bob Cassels of Chicago, who tied for
first at the Drake Relays with 13 ft.
8 in., and Ed Thistlethwaite of North-
western, who did 13 ft. 11 in. at the
Armour Relays indoors, are expected
to push the favorite.
Diefenthaler Is Favored
Illinois' captain Bob Diefenthaler
who has come into his own this year.
is all alone in the high jump and if
he is .to break Dave Albritton's mark
of 6 ft. 7 /14 in. he will have to do it
without much competition. He al-
ready has done 6 ft. 6 in. Wes Allen's
knee injury cut down the lone threat
to the Illini's supremacy.
,Walter Mehl of Wisconsin and
Ralph Schwarzkopf of Michigan will
try to settle their two year squabble
for Big Ten two-mile honors.
Although both have bettered Don
Lash's time of 9:10.4, the mark does
not appear to be in immediate dan-
ger. If Mehl runs the one-mile he
will undoubtedly be weakened in his
favorite event.
The price of admission for stl-
dents with identification cards at

Trophy Winner
Archie Kodros not only shattered1

football letterman to win the Chicago

Shown the most improvement, appli-

but with the exception of Kodros few
have lived up to the "promise" they
have shown.
Kodros beat the 13 jinx and broke
tradition, and at the same time broke
the spell that marks trophy winners
for obscurity by being one of the out-
standing centers in the Big Ten last
season. Will his successor today con-
tinue or fall prey to the Chicago Al-

To Win Sixth In Row
Showing no mercy, the Wolverine
netmen wreaked vengeance on the
Purdue netters for last year's de-
feat, by trouncing them, 6-1, yes-
terday afternoon at Ferry Field. The
win was the sixth in succession for
the Weirmen, and the twelfth of the
Jim Tobin showed his best form
of the year as he romped through
Herb Fuente in straight sets, 6-3,
6-3. Fuente had quite a time trying
to prevent Tobin from passing lirn
with forehand drives, and whenever
he succeeded, a perfect lob would
catch him flatfooted.
Percival continued where Tobin had
left off, but it took him a little longer
to complete the victory, as he defeat-
ed George Alexander, 13-11, 6-1. The
first set was a see-saw affair, with
long vollies predominating. Alexn-
der's spirit seemed to break after the
first set, and Percival won the second
in quick fashion.
Sam Durst, John Kidwell, and Jim
Porter turned in victories to com-
plete a clean sweep of the singles
matches. Durst won his match in
straight sets to annex his seventh
straight' triumph. Both Kidwell and
Porter had to go three sets before
emerging victorious.
