proceded to walk Bill Brewer and
Paul Milosevich, and had two balls
on pinch hitter Ed Miller, when Coach
Ray Fisher called in Stoddard to
the rescue.
Mickey forced Miller to ground to
Steppon, ending the inning, and held
the Illini at bay in the ninth to pre-
serve the Michigan lead.
Illinois jumped on Bond early to
score twice in each of the first two
innings. With one out in the first,
Russ Drechsler tripled, Evers walked
and stole second, and both crossed
the plate on Hapac's single to cen-
ter.
In the second, Brewer walked, Mi-
losevich doubled and pitcher Al Grant
came through with a timely single
to give the Illini a 4-0 margin.
The Wolverines got one back in the
third when Bond walked, went to
third on Pink's hit and scored on
Sofiak's infield out.
Michigan added another run in the
sixth. Steppon was hit by a pitch
and Ruehle and Harms chipped in
with base hits to score the Wolverine
second baseman.
A keen pitching duel is anticipat-
ed in tomorrow's game when Jack
Barry and Johnny Pacotti, rival aces,
are sent to the mound.

(Editor's Note: This week the col-
umn is being written by the members
of the junior sports staff who are
applying for the position of sports
editor for the coming year. Today's
column is written by Don Wirtchafter,
who has covered varsity swimming.
Track a la Derby...
We're not ones to get sentimental
or anything like that, but we can't
help feeling sorry for the Michigan
trackmen today. We're frankly wor-
ried about the future of this Wolver-
ine team if changes aren't made, and
made in a hurry.
Now seriously, how would you feel
if you were racing your heart out
against Illinois this afternoon, and
when you went to see what .the pa-
pers thought of the track meet, all
you could find were pictures of
horses and stories from Churchill
Downs. As we understand it, they're
running off some sort of Kentucky
Derby down there today, and no
other sporting event has a chance
to break into the headlines. The
geegees have a monopoly on the
thing.
Well, believers as we are in
anti-trust laws, something ought
to be done about this. After all,
the Wolverine lads, educated,
able homo sapiens as they are,
will be doing the same sort of
galloping this afternoon as the
horses. They'll be trying just
As hard and steering their uwiL
courses, which is more than even
the great Bimelech can do. But
still, the fans, 100,000 or more,
will stream into the bluegrass
country. Radios will carry the
hoofer results and propaganda
throughout the world. The
greatest sports writers in the
nation will be in Louisville, and
the Wolverine lads will run here.
What is more, when Bimelech

Varsity Netters
Meet Maroons
Here Indoors
Defending Big 10 Champs
Powerful Despite Loss
Of Murphy Twins
Chicago's tennis team, Big Ten
champions for the past three years,
will meet Coach Weir's Wolverine
netmen at 1:15 p.m. today on the
Sports Building's indoor courts un-
less a sudden change in weather con-
ditions permits the match to be
played outdoors.
Weakened by the graduation of last
year's star twin combination, Chet
and Bill Murphy, the Maroons drop-
ped a match to Northwestern, cur-
rent title favorites, Wednesday, 6-3,
but in doing so Chicago displayed
much promise for the future.
Leading the contingent from the
Midway are Charles Shostrom, Art
Jorgensen, and Cal Saywier. In the
Northwestern match Shostrom took
Seymour Greenberg outstanding fav-
orite to cop the number one singles'
Conference crown, to three sets be-
fore losing. Jorgensen, Chicago num-'
bei two man, and Saywier, Chicago'
Junior Champion, downed North-
western's Harrison O'Neill and Clif-
ford, respectively.
Most encouraging to the Wolver-
ines is the fact that Chicago lost
its last three singles matches to the,
Wildcats, while Michigan's strength
is in these spots.
Playing for the Weirmen in the,
top singles position will be Capt. Sam
Durst, sensational upset winner over
Marian "Buck" Shane, Kalamazoo
ace, last Thursday. Jim Tobin will

play number two, with Tom Gamon,
Harry Kohl, Wayne Stille and Bob
Jeffers taking over the three, four,
five and six positions respectively.
Durst and Tobin form the only
certain Michigan doubles team, meet-
ing Shostrom and Jorgensen, Chica-
go's number one duo in the feature
doubles match. Coach Weir has been
experimenting with all the available
combinations at his disposal, and
hasn't made a definite decision in
regard to the makeup of his second
and third combines.

sight for, as Courtright pointed out
yesterday. "Our last two matches
were awfully close and Ohio State
is always tough for us on this
course."
Capt. Bob Palmer will team up
with Emery in the best ball matches
in the morning as Bill Black and
Tom Tussing and Lynn Riess and
Goodwin Clark complete the Var-
sity doubles team.
Ohio State will bring a six-man
team led by Capt. Charles Evans
with Bill Gilbert, John Simione, Sam
Bartchy, Bud Bellino and possibly
Tony Montonaro rounding out the
rest of the squad.
In the afternoon singles matches,
starting about 1:00 p.m., Courtright
is undecided about his lineup. Pal-
mer and Emery are sure to play, but
it's a toss-up as to who will play
the other positions.
Dave Osler and John Barr both
may get a chance to show their stuff
with Goodwin Clark, the sensational
sophomore, likely to see'plenty of ac-
tion in either the morning or after-
noon rounds.
A glance over the records shows
that the Buckeyes from Columbus
have found the competition from
their Maize and Blue rivals rather
rough for the past two seasons. Last
year, Michigan's team, which fin-
ished second in the Conference,
swamped State, 20-4 and 18!/-8%,
in their two meetings.

Big Bo Bimelech
In Walk-Straight
From His Feed Box
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 3.-(/)-
Everything looked made to order for
Big Boy Bimelech tonight.
A field of nine was named for to-
morrow's 66th running of the Ken-
tucky Derby and Old. Man Weather
promised to turn off his frost and
rain faucets for the big doings.
It was still as cold as the inside of
your ice box around here tonight
and the track was slow. Mr. Weather
didn't say positively, but if he does
his stuff and provides a fast run-
ning strip, it will just make the whole
mile-and-a-quarter affair more lop-
sided for Bimmie, who is bidding a
fifth Derby victory for Col. E. R.
Bradley and who probably will be
the shortest priced favorite in the
history of the classic. If he's as good
as 2 to 5 in the mutuels, the betting
boys and girls will consider it a bar-
gain, indeed, and if he wins (which
just about everybody fully expects)
he'll collect a neat $60,675 as the
winner's end in a nine-horse race.
With the exception of Arnold Han-
ger's Dit, the $4,000 Saratoga year-
ling sales bargain who romped off
with the Wood Memorial last week,
the standouts are the slop-steppers,
like William L. Brann' Pictor, a son
of Challenger 2nd, Royal Man, Jos-
eph E. Widener's Roman, and Mrs.
Ethel V. Mars' Gallahadion.

Title For Foresters
A long three bagger in the sev-
enth inning by left fielder Harold
Kruger scored the winning run and
brought the Forestry Club the In-
dependent League championship as
the Foresters humbled Hillbilly A.C.,
2-1, yesterday afternoon.
William Ferrell singled in this in-
ning, was forced at second by War-
ren Thiel, and Kruger's lusty triple
scored Thiel.
In the only other game played,
undefeated Wenley House won a
free-hitting affair from Allen-Rum-
sey, 9-8.

course, we would have left only one
small entrance into the lot, so that
when more than two cars came at
one time, we'd get a tie-up in front.
People go for that sort of thing.
After all, what's a big sports event
without a good hearty traffic jam?
Once the customers got inside
the gate, we planned on having
three steel-lunged hawkers leap
on the cars selling free passes,
balloons, racing forms, tooth
picks, sun glasses, gas masks,
and new cars. Of course, they
would have also handled the
tip sheets . . . "Dopey Don's
Daily Dopings", the only service
in the world in which the expert
actually talked it over with the
runners during the morning
workouts.
Ferry Field itself was to have been
done over like the New York World's
Fair with a huge pond in the center
in which Billy Rose's performers
would have put on shows between
the races. The horse tracks have
markers at the end of each furlong.
Well, we intended to have the four
beautiful girls on campus stand
110 yards apart along the track. It
would have made an impressive
sight.
Then too, we had to consider the
geegee followers who wouldn't have
been satisfied with the human race,
no matter how we spiced it up. We
needed something for them. That
was one of our more difficult prob-
lems but we finally decided to have
Schwarzkopf, Balyeat and the rest
of the Wolverine lads gallop with
monkeys on their back and blinkers
on their eyes. In that way, these
horse lovers would feel more at
home and wouldn't miss the change,
We had one more thing for them.
We intended to give .22-piece horse-
shoe sets to the bingo winners, since
naturally bingo, screeno, horso, and
bank night would have entered into
our plan.
We also had a name for our
whole show . . . one .that was
fitting and proper, and original,
of course. We struck upon the
Kendoherty Derby at beautif l
Ferry Field Park. It has that
certain "je ine sais quoi," shall
we say.
Well, there are the plans that
would have left Churchill Downs as
quiet as the cemetery across from
Jordan Hall today. Yep, the Wol-
verine lads would have found tl-ir
blinkered faces all over the papers.
Ann Arbor would have been packed,
or something.
