year-old record of 9:18.3. He stepped
out from the beginning and from
his first 2:16 half mile there was lit-
tle doubt but that the mark was
doomed. 4:33 at the mile and it was
just a question of how much he'd
break it by. He finally ran 9:10.7 and
he did it running around men as he
lapped five of the starters and fin-
ished 170 yards ahead of Ed Hedges
of Indiana. When the Wolverine
captain crossed the finish line he
was in fifth place-except that he
was a lap ahead of the rest. Bill
Ackerman and Brad Heyl finished
well in fourth and fifth places.
Piker Retains Title
Defending champion Myron Piker
of Northwestern will still be defend-
ing champion in the 60-yard dash
when he returns for his senior year.
The blond Wildcat broke in front
and managed to keep in front of
Minnesota's sprinting quarterback,
George Franck. Alan Smith, sec-
ond here last year, got off poorly
and finished third. Al Piel, who beat
Piker in 6.2 in last night's prelims.
took fourth.
The 880 produced the other upset
of the evening as Wisconsin's Ed
Buxton spoiled Kane's plans for the
night's only double. Les Eisenhardt
held the lead for the first quarter,
with Dye Hogan second and Kane
and Tommy Jester waging their own
private little feud as the Hosier
alternated between sixth and second.
Buxton Nips Kane
As they came down the last back-
stretch, Hogan attempted to pass Ei-
senhardt and caught him as they
went into the turn. Kane, coming
up on the outside, tried to cut across
to the pole and appeared to shove
Hoga:1 in to Eisenhardt. At any rate
both Wolverine and the Buckeye
broke stride and Kane hurried intiV
the lead on the stretch, apparently
an easy winner when from out of a

comparative nowhere came Buxton.
The six foot four Badger scrambled
down the last forty yards, caught
the wheezing Kane and nipped him
by a foot. Hogan never recovered
from the inadvertant push and took
fourth ahead of Jester. Buxton's
winning time, 1:54.4, was an even
half-second behind Chuck Hornbos-
tel's record time while Hogan, with, a
1:55.9, ran his fastest.
In the first event of the evening,
Kane had produced the first half
of his attempted double when he an-
nexed the mile. The six foot four
Hoosier, who runs his races the hard
way, from behind, overtook Ed
Holderman, fourth here last year,
Qn the last turn and then just ran
away to win by eight yards in 4:13.7.
Michigan's Ed Barrett, ill yesterday
with a cold, was in third place at
the beginning and in third place
at the end.
Smith Wins Hurdles
In the 70-yard high hurdles, the
race was won in the first ten yards.
Wisconsin's Ed Smith shot from his
marks in front, assumed a yard lead
and then just staved off Michigan's
Stan Kelley's desperate closing spurt.
Wolverine supremacy in the mile
relay, threatened by experts in pre-
meet predictions, was regained with
sublime ease and efficiency in the
actual test. Running on a time basis,
the Michigan quartet of Kelley, Bob
Barnhard, Phil Balyeat and Breiden-
bach ran 3:20.6 in the slower of the
two heats. The heat may have been
slower but the Wolverines' time was
2.2 seconds better than Illinois' which
won its heat with ease.
Kelley, leading off, handed Barn-
hard a ten yard lead and the stocky
junior hurried along with a 49.7
quarter to lengthen the advantage
to 20 yards. Balyeat, hampered by
a bad leg which permitted him only
to run this event at the meet, ran
49.9 and Breidenbach was forty
yards in the van when he started.
Yanks Lose To Cards
the season in their usual fashion, the
world champion New York Yankees
were crushed 6 to 3 Saturday by the
St. Louis Cardinals in the first of a
series of six exhibition games.

University Of Chicago Censured
By Big Ten Athletic Directors

(Special To The Daily)
CHICAGO, Ill., March 9.-The Uni-
versity of Chicago was censured here
today by the athletic directors of the
Western Conference and until "Some
questions are clarified, future sports
schedules for the Conference will be
held in abeyance," it was announced
The directors took no exception to
any statements issued by the chair-
man of the board of trustees and the
president of the university as to the
position adopted by them in regard
to intercollegiate football. They did
object, however, to a statement of
an unknown spokesman for the trus-
tees and the issuance of a pamphlet
containing false statements deroga-
tory to the Conference, by an alumni
According to the Conference by-
laws, any material in the hands of

the Chicago trustees bearing upon the
integrity of the Conference should
be placed in the hands of the com-
missioner, Major Griffith. And un-
til the matter is cleared up, that is,
until Chicago has made clear its
stand, future schedules cannot be
made. It was the first directors' meet-
ing since Chicago made its now fam-
ous statement.
The last time such a punitive ac-
tion was taken was back in 1922 when
Wisconsin football coach Richards
issued some statements regarding the
condition of Conference football at
other schools. At the next direc-
tors' meeting, Wisconsin found it im-
possible to schedule any other Big
Ten school. Richards resigned and
a few days later the Badgers had
five Conference opponents.
It was not known when Chicago
would clarify its position.
Illinois Upsets
hockey Team
- Score
Varsity Attack Is Stalled
As Orange And Blue
Check Charley Ross
(Special To The Daily)
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 9-An
inspired Illinois hockey team won
their first Big Ten game of the sea-
son tonight as they turned the ta-
bles on Michigan with a surprising
3-0 victory over the heavily favored
Wolverines in the season finale.
Paced by Chet Ziemba, burly de-
fenseman who scored two goals and
an assist, the Orange and Blue
counted once in each period. Tom
Jaworiek, substitute right winger,
got the opening score in the first
period after a scramble in front of
the Michigan net.
The Illini held the Wolverines'
chief scoring threat, Charley Ross,
well in check all night and as a re-
sult stymied the Maize and Blue at-
tack. Throughout the entire game
the Michigan sextet had difficulty
getting a concentrated drive well
Failure to cover up in front of the
goal was mainly responsible for tile
Wolverine defeat as Vic Heyliger's
inexperienced skaters capitalized on
all of the opportunities offered them,
something which they had failed to
do while losing to Michigan Thursday
night, 2-0.
Tonight's defeat ended the colle-
giate career of the Wolverine cap-
tain, Spike James, who got little help
from his mates this evening.
Coach Eddie Lowrey's squad fin-
ished the season with a record of 14
losses, five wins and one tie.
They trailed Minnesota in the
Conference standings with the Illi-
nois team in third place.
Marquette Victor In Meet
EAST LANSING, March 9.-()-
Marquette University of Milwaukee,
repeating last year's outdoor triumph,
tonight broke the University of Notre
Dame's long hold on Central Col-
legiate Conference track honors, win-
ning the fourteenth annual indoor
championships without taking a single
first place.

champion, and Montonaro, Ohio
State's 145-pounder.
Michigan's other finalist, 145-poun-
der Bill Combs, wrestling with a bad
knee, fell before Buckeye Tony Mon-
tonaro, 9-5, but defeated Morton of
Minnesota in the consolation matches
to take second and add three points
to his team's total.
Jordan Defeats Downes
Jordan gained revenge for a pre-
vious beating this year when he licked
George Downes, Ohio State heavy,
18-12, in a wide-open match for the
crown. Downes, who had pinned last
year's national runnerup, Sikich, in
the semi-finals, took a second when
he licked Levy, of Minnesota, 15-12.
Don Nichols and Harland Danner
closed their Big Ten careers by re-
capturing the titles they held in 1938.
Nichols defeated Whitmore, Iowa 175-
pounder, 11-3, and Danner ran his

to six when he won the 155-pound
finals over Weiss, of Indiana, 8-6.
Danner's other point came as a re-
sult of his fall victory over Chicago's
Stone yesterday afternoon.
Galles Adds Three Points

ped his semi-final match to cham-
pion McDaniels, finished the Wolver-
ines' scoring by adding three more

Johnny Higgins successfully de-
fended his 200-yard breastroke crown
as Michigan's great sophomore, John
Sharemet fought on even terms for
the first 150 yards but dropped be-
hind in the final lap. John Haigh
finished third.
The other Buckeye victory came in
the quarter-mile freestyle. With Jim
Welsh in the hospital, Harold Stan-
hope, last year's backstroke king,
changed his field and won the event
in 4:58.2. Blake Thaxter finished
Outside of these three events, it was
all Michigan. The Wolverines started
and ended on the right track as they
took both relay events. The medely
trio of Bill Beebe, Gus Sharemet and
John Sharemet triumphed over Ohio
in 2:58.2, while the freestyle quartet
loafed tonight after setting a new
mark of 3:32.6 yesterday and finished
in a slow 3:37.8.
In their final Conference appear-
I Spors
Phi Delta Theta won second place
in the interfraternity class "A" bas-
ketball league yesterday, beating the
Acacia five, 10-8. Dick Walker's four
points was the offensive standout for
the winners, with gridder Jack Mey-
ers turning in a fine defensive game.
Johnny Paup contributed an even
half of the losers' total.
In the class "A" third-place semi-
finals, Phi Beta Delta licked Phi
Sigma Kappa, 10-6. The winners will
meet the Sigma Chi "A" squad in

ance, the Michigan seniors put on a
grand show as Ed Hutchens won the
220. Benham finished third in the
dive, and Haigh third in the breas-
stroke. Hutchens' performance was
especially impressive as the improved
senior succeeded his ill teammate
Welsh as Big Ten champion. He led
Ohio's John Patton all the way sad
finished in 2:17.2, with Tom Wil-
liams fourth.
Second last year to Tomski, Char-
