Frosh Relay Team Sets
Two New Records
Two new freshman outdoor track
records were established yesterday
when a four-man relay team, paced
by the Varsity, ran the 440-yard re-
lay in :43.6 and the 880-yard relay
in 1:30.7. Coach Ken Doherty also
announced that twenty-eight fresh-
men have been awarded numerals
for the outdoor season.
The relay team was comprised of
Bud Piel, Gake Cheney, Don Jones
and Al Thomas, with the half-mile
relay being run in that order and
the quarter-mile in exactly the re-
verse order. The two efforts were
fast enough to beat the times of
1:33.3, which was set for the 880-
yard relay by another freshman team
last Monday, and :45.1, which was
recorded for the 440- at a Varsity re-
lay meet in 1937.
The letter winners were: Wilbert
E. Ackerman, George M. Baumgar-
ten, Carl Bernstein, Dale S. Chamber-
lin, William H. Dannacher, Charles
Decker, Jacob Fahrner, Arthur H.
Farr, Richard G. Fogg, Robert Fow-
ler, Raymond H. Gauthier, Lawrence

Weirmen Take
Second In Row
From Spartans
Varsity Sweeps Doubles
As Tobin Wins Singles
From Opponents' Best
EAST LANSING, May 24.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily) -Weathering a de-
termined but fruitless attack on the
part of the Michigan State netmen
here this afternoon, the Wolverine
varsity squad swept the three doubles
matches to clinch the victory and
make it two in a row over the Spar-
tans as they downed them 6-3.
For a while, it looked as if the
Spartans would upset the Weirmen,
as the results of the second, third and
sixth place singles matches went to
them, while the Michigan squad had
but, the fourth to their credit. At the
same time, the remaining two singles
matches seemed to be Spartan wins,
as Chet Olson and Bill Gibbs had
their respective foes, Jim Tobin and
Steve Woolsey, on the run.
Tobin Makes Comeback r
However, some fine tennis on the
part of the Wolverines soon put the
Spartans hopes to flight as both
Michigan players crashed through to
victory. Jim Tobin lost the first set
to Olson, 6-3, and was behind in the
second 4-1, when suddenly he changed
his mode of attack, and began pep-
pering Olson with drop shots, cross-
court shots, and gradually forced him
up to the net.
This attack put Tobin back in the
running, and he went on to win the
set, 7-5. The third set was merely
a matter of time before Tobin won
6-2, as it was obvious that Olson was
completely outclassed.
Woolsey encountered difficulties in
his match, and it took him 16 games
in order to capture the first set, 9-7.
In the second; after having a 4-0 lead,
Steve faltered long enough to give
Gibbs a chance to catch up to and
pass him, and finally win out 8-6. In
the final set, however, Woolsey once
more turned on the pressure, and
rompedto an easy 6-2 triumph.
Michigan Captures Doubles
With a split in the singles instead
of the comfortable lead they had an-
ticipated, the Spartans were rapidly
routed and the Wolverines made a
clean sweep of the three doubles with-
out dropping a set. Capt. Don Per-
cival and Ed Morris provided the up-
set of the day when they gave up but
four games in downing the State
number one team, 6-2, 6-2. Morris
turned his ankle at the start of the
second set, but continued on despite
this handicap.
John Kidwell and Jim Tobin gained
revenge for their defeat earlier in the
season, by swamping the Spartan
number two combination, 6-0, 6-2,
while Sam Durst and Steve Woolsey
completed the day with an 8-6, 6-2
Singles: Tobin (M) defeated Olson
(MSC) 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. Struck (MSC)
defeated Percival (M) 6-2, 8-6. Per-
kins (MSC) defeated Kidwell (M)
6-6, 6-1. Durst (M) defeated Kosit-
chek (MSC) 6-1, 6-2. Woolsey (M)
defeated Gibbs (MSC) 9-7, 6-8, 6-2.
Rawitz (MSC) defeated Jeffers (M)
6-1, 6-4.
Doubles: Percival, Morris (M) de-
feated Struck, Olson (MSC) 6-2, 6-2.
Tobin, Kidwell (M) defeated Kosit-
chek, Gibbs, (MSC) 6-0, 6-2. Durst
and Woolsey (M) defeated Perkins,
Pratt (MSC) 8-6, 6-2.

Catcher Leo Beebe's steady hit-

career as a Wolverine regular.
Yates Is Eliminated
In British Amateur
HOYLAKE, Eng., May 24.-(P)-
Dick Chapman, a crooner from
Greenwich, Conn., with a rhythmical
putter, defeated defending champion
Charley Yates of Atlanta, Ga., in
the third round of the British Ama-
teur Golf Championship today after
one of the truly inspired half hours
in the history of this tournament.
Chapman, who went to the semi-
finals of the United States Amateur
last year,'turned back the Southerner
5vand 3 and with him into the fourth
round went "Trailer" Bill Holt of
Syracuse.with a 3 and 2 decision over
D. S. Coates of England.
Ellsworth Vines, better known for
his' tennis, also. fell' by the wayside,
losing to -John Baillieu, a splendid
player "from Australia, 2 and 1.

Their 14 match schedule behind
them, and with it a .714 win average,
Michigan's powerful links squad now
turns to the important business of
tuning up for its try at the Big Ten
golf title in the Conference meet to
be held next Monday and Tuesday at
Chicago's Kildeer Country Club.
The task of lifting the Conference
Crown now resting comfortably in
the possession of Minnesota will be
no easy job for the Wolverines de-
spitetheir four wins in five matches
against Big Ten competition. Never-
theless a consideration of the record
compiled by Coach Courtright's team
does rate them a better than even
chance of replacing the Gophers at
the top of the heap.
Gophers Retain Strength
Minnesota this year returns with
Co-captains Neil Croonquist and Billy
Cooper, MerleGretten and Bob Knut-
son, and of these, only Knutson did
not play with the Conference cham-
pions last year. Co-captain Croon-
quist placed third in the individual
championships with a 72 hole total of
305. In winning the meet last year,
the Gophers posted 16 cards totalling
Five strokes behind the Gophers
last year, came Northwestern's 1937
Big Ten champs with a 1,260. They

Diz Trout Pitches Tigers
To 6-1 Win Over Yankees
NEW YORK, May 24.-(P)-Prov-
ing that the world champion Yankees
are vulnerable sometimes, if not
often, the Detroit Tigers slugged their
way to a 6 to 1 victory today to give
New York's American League lead-
ers their first defeat in 13 games.
While Paul (Dizzy) Trout, a rookie
righthander, was scattering seven
hits and keeping well out of danger,
the Bengals worked out on three

retained his title in the individual
play with a 305. Richardson captains
the Wildcat squad which this year
also has only one newcomer in its
ranks. ,
Michigan has not played Minne-]
sota, but does know how the team
stacks up against the Wildcats, hav-
ing won a 13%/-10%/ decision over
them at Evanston several weeks ago.
Sid Richardson's two-year recordl
failed to impress Jack Emery in the
individual play, and the Wolverine
ace rolled up a 2 1n /-2 win over him.
Illinois May Surprise
Pulling up behind the third place
Wolverines who carded 1,264 strokes
came Illinois with 1,282, and Ohio
State with 1,294. The Illini will give
the top teams more competition than
they are looking for from this quar-
ter. The Illinois squad tripped up the
Wolverines this season with a 162-
7/2 trouncing which, coming on the
heels of Michigan's win over North-
western, stung all the more.
Ohio State does not trouble the
Wolverines in the least, raving gone
down before them twice already this
season. Chuck Evans, who plays num-
ber three for the Buckeyes, placed
second to Richardson in the individ-
ual matches last year with a 309. Loar
beat Evans in the first meet between
Michigan and Ohio State, but the
Buckeye linksman defeated Bob Pal-
mer in the second meeting between
the two schools.
The other schools in the Confer-
ence brought up quite a distance be-
hind the fifth place Buckeyes with
scores ranging from 1,303 by Wis-
consin to Chicago in last place with
