CORNER
By Mel Fine berg

Risky Business ...
Davis Cup tennis seems to carry in-
ternational dynamite. Last summer,
when pon Budge and Gene Mako
toured Europe, they were scheduled
to play someplace in Yugoslavia-and
found themselves in the middle of a
near civil war. Nobody knew whether
they were to play in Zagreb, a coast
metropolis, or Belgrade, the seat of
the government.
Tennis associations of both
cities sold tickets and both re-
fused to arbitrate. No civil war
resulted because the Americans
played in both cities and both
sides were placated.
A recent case arose in Poland when
the "German" team met the Poles.
Playing for Germany were Roderick
Menzel and George von Meta. Now
these two gentlemen are people of
high character and of a correspond-
ingly high tennis calibre. But it seems
that Menzel once played for a strip
of land in central Europe formerly
known as Czechoslovakia. And Von
Metaxa used to call his country Aus-
tria. But times being what they are
for reasons to be found on the edi-
torial page, these two tennis players
found themselves in German livery--
a fact which didn't seem to worry
theni butwhich confounded the
Poles no end.
In fact, the Poles were so exas-
perated that they did what no
well-groomed tennis fan should
do; they hurled boos and catcalls
down on the heads of these two
expatriates. It turned out that a
real German named Henner Hen-
kel won the deciding match but
this placated the Poles not a jot.
Of course, it may not mean a
thing but if a Pole had climbed
out of the stands and called Men-
zel a cad, an international inci-
dent might have arisen and no-
body knows whatl might have
happened.

proved the Riveters' last gasp, as the
Wolverine hurler held Coach Dutch;
Fehring's men hitless for the re-
mainder of the game.
The Wolverines tallied their win-
ning run in the sixth when Bill
Steppon, playing shortstop in place
of Mike Sofiak who was out with a
sort; a. rn, rapped a three-bagger to
deep left. Leo Beebe then scored
Steppon with a long sly to left field-
er Vernon.
The victory wound up the Confer-
ence schedule for Michigan and left
Coach Ray .Fisher's charges a chance
to tie for second place in theBig
Ten standings. Should Iowa lose its
remaining two games, Indians will re-
gain the Conference crown and the
Hawkeyes will fall back into a second
place tie with the Wolverines.
The Varsity will end its season at

Get Three Hits In Wolverine Victory
While Jack Barry was limiting the Purdue Boilermakers to but four
hits and two runs, Capt. Walt Peckinpaugh (left) and Elmer Gedeon
closed their Big Ten careers in convincig fashion by each pounding
out three hits in four times at bat. Two of first baseman Gedeon's blows
drove in valuable Wolverine runs, while third baseman Peckinpaugh
garnered a lusty triple and two singles in addition to scoring a run in
Michigan's 3-2 victory.

EEN in a banner in the St. Louis
Post Dispatch: "Armstrong to
take long rest after beating Roder--
ick." This is very interesting but just
the same we wonder what Roderick
will be doing next week.
CORNERSTONES: Out of the 11
football coaches in town last
weekend, six conceded Michigan at
least a share in the Big Ten title.
Some were saying that Bill DeCor-
revant wouldn't start next year.
If we recall correctly, Tom Harmon
didn't start against Michigan State
last year but it is rumored he was
around after that . . . Elmer Lay-
den, Notre Dame's coach and one of
the Four Horsemen, called red-head-
ed Ollie Hahnenstein of Northwes-
tern, the nearest thing to Red Grange
. Hahnenstein didn't star against
Michigan but was very much in evi-
dence after the game got going . . .
As Layden ruefully remarked, he
was also among the present in the
Notre Dame affair which the Irish
snatched, 9-7.
Wildcat Hurler Pitches
No-Hitter Over Chicago
EVANSTON, Ill., May 27. -().-
Bill Syring, right-hand senior pitch-
ing star from New York City, became
the first Big Ten hurler to produce a
no-hit, no-run game this season when
he turned the trick today as North-
western crushed Chicago, 10 to 0.
Syring allowed five men to reach
first, three on walks but only one got
as far as second. The contest was
a tight pitching duel until the sev-
enth when Nick Conteas smashed out
a home run with the bases full to
put the game on ice.

Tric Tipton Gets Position

RICHMOND, Va. May 27.-(AP)-
The Times-Dispatch said tonight it
learned on good authority that Eric
G. Tipton, 24-year-old All-American
football player at Duke University,
would join the Philadelphia Ath-
letics at Detroit June 8.
Tipton, who hit a better than .400

Golfers Leave
Title Drive
Five Wolverines AttemptI
To Win Big Ten Meet
Five golfers will leave this morn-
ing for the Big Ten golf champion-
ships to be held at Chicago Monday
and Tuesday, and in their hands lie
Michigan's hopes for the Conference
crown that they have not worn since
the departure of Chuck Koscis in
1936.
The team selected to equal or bet-
ter last year's third place behind
Minnesota and Northwestern con-
;ists of Jack Emery, Jim Loar, Capt.
Bob Palmer, Tom Tussing, and Ed
Hoagland. Hoagland, who shot a
blazing sub-par 67 Friday was chosen
in preference to Lynn Riess.
Ten Teams Compete
Ten five-man teams will be entered
by the Conference schools in the 72
holes of competition to be played
at the Kildeer Country Club. Each
school will post their best four totals
for the 72 holes at the end of the
second day. The best 72-hole score
carded by ny one player will decide
the individual title, now held by Sid
Richardson for the second year.
Michigan won the Big Ten title
five years in a row from 1932 to 1936
with the aid of Johnny Fischer and
Chuck Koscis who also brought the
Wolverine teams three individual
crowns in that period.
Emery Leads Attack
This year, the Michigan squad en-
ters against a strong field dominated
by Minnesota, Illinois and Northwes-
tern. The Wolverines emerged from
their 14 dual match schedule this
season with a record of 10 wins, and
in doing so proved to be one of the
best-balanced golf teams to be'
turned out by Coach Ray Court-
right in quite some time.
The strong Michigan attack will
be led by Jack Emery who stands out
as a serious threat to Sid Richard-
son's supremacy in the individual
matches. Four men capable of finish-
ing up at the top in the individual
play together with Emery make the
Wolverines one of the favorites to

Varsity Net men
To Seek Third
, Conference
With high hopes for attaining third
place in the Big Ten tennis meet to-
morrow, Tuesday, and Wednesday
at Chicago, Coach Leroy Weir and
seven Varsity netters will leave Ann
Arbor this noon. The seven, as an-
nounced by Coach Weir after yester-
day's matches are: Capt. Don Per-
cival, Jim Tobin, John Kidwell, Sam
Durst, Ed Morris, Steve Woolsey,
and Jim Porter.
Seeding Is Tonight
The favorites for ;op honors in
the meet are Chicago and Northwes-
tern, with the Wolverines and Illi-
nois fighting it out for third. The
entire outcome of the meet will re-
sult from the seeding and drawings
made up by the coaches tonight at
Chicago.
Last year, the Wolverines were un-
lucky in the draw and as a result
were eliminated early. However, due
to their dual meet record this year,
many of the Weirmen will be seeded
and avoid meeting the aces for the
first round.
Wolverine Hopes Slim
As far as individual honors are
concerned, Sam Durst has the best
opportunity to take top honors in
the number six position. His main
opposition will come from Eben
Jones of Illinois and Charlie John-
son of Minnesota. In the doubles,
Durst will pair with Steve Woolsey
in the third team, which is favored
to win.
Outside of these two places, the
Wolverines' hopes for top honors are
very slim. Chicago will probably
capture four singles and two doubles,
with Northwestern taking the other
singles.

Trojans Make
Record Score
To Win IC 4-A
USC Track Stars Pile Up
71 Points; Woodruff
Wins 880 And Mile
NEW YORK, May 27. -()- A
smooth-working, high-geared piece
of track and field machinery swept
through the 63rd championships of
the Intercollegiate A.A.A.A., tday
and turned in a set of record-shat-
tering performances that should
stand for many years to come.
Before a crowd of 7,500 in Tri-
borough Stadium, and under perfect
weather conditions, the Trojans of
Southern California piled up 71/2
points, highest in the meet's history,
to win the team title for the second
straight2year and the ninth time
since 1925.
Winning five individual events,
sharing in two others and adding
the mile relay championship as a
crowning touch, the Trojans spread-
eagled the field so badly that Pitts-
burgh, in second place, had only 26
points and none of the others got
beyond 20. California was third with
16% and Michigan State fourth
with 15.
But while the Pacific Coast Confer-
ence champions were making good so
handsomely on their awesome repu-
tation, Long John Woodruff of Pitts-
burgh did all that could be expected
of a lone Easterner standing up
against this 20-man Western inva-
sion.
In his final LC.4-A appearance,
Woodruff won the 440-yard and 880-
yard titles for the third straight year
and made this finale the best of the
three.
Bob Peoples' javelin throw of 223
feet 11/ inches, which led the quali-
fiers yesterday, stood up as the best
performance of the two days. U.S.C.'s
Jim Humphrey tied the record of
14.4 seconds in winning the 120-
yard high hurdles.
Heyliger Gets
Coaching Job
Former Michigan Hockey
Star Goes To Illinois
Vic Heyliger, former captain of the
Michigan hockey team, was yester-
day appointed head coach of the
University of Illinois, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Illini athletic
officials.
Heyliger, who led the Wolverine
squad to a tie for the Big Ten cham-
pionship during the 1936-37 season,
was also a member of the Michigan
baseball squad during his under-
graduaterdays. He played catcher
and center field.
The new Illinois coach signed a
contract with the Chicago Black-
hawks the year after his graduation
but an injury forced him to quit
professional hockey for the year. Last
season, he played amateur hockey
with the Holzbaugh-Ford team in
the Michigan-Ontario League.

Dan Sullivan, husky, shot putter
from Wayne High School, tossed the
12-pound shot 53 ft. 9% in. to set a
new Class B mark in the annual
Michigan High School Track and
Field Meet at East Lansing yesterday.
Sullivan's effort Was within seven-r
eighths of an inch of the Class A rec-
ord of 53 ft. 10 3/8 in., held by Sill
Watson, captain of Michigan's 1939
track squad.r
