back to, place third in the discus.
The nearest approach to a new
record was Dye Hogan's in the half-
mile. In this race, in addition to
Michigan's regular half-milers, were
quarter-milers Warren Breidenbachl
and George Pettersen, and milers Ed
Barrett and Jack Dobson. Breiden-
bach had already won the 440, and
Barrett had had a hard mile race.
Howie Egert led the pack for the
first lap, at which point Hogan took
over the lead. Barrett, ill, and feel-
ing the effects of the mile, dropped
out just before the 440, and Breid-
enbach was running next to last.
John Krivec, of Illinois, momentari-
ly caught Dye, but Hogan let out a
bit more, and Krivec faded.
With 220 yards to go, Breidenbach
started to come up on the outside,
shooting into second place as the last
turn was reached, but Hogan was far
in front, and won by 12 yards in
1:54.8, only two-tenths of a second
off the meet mark. Breidenbach
was running the half just for fun,
and did very well under the condi-
tions. Schubert of Illinois managed
fo salvage third place.
Smith ran extremely well in win-
ning the dashes. Al caught up with
Don Olsen of Illinois at the 30-yard
mark, and led the rest of the way
to win the 100 in 9.9, a good perfor-
mance for the first meet of the year.
Then he came back to lead all the
way in the 220, running an excellent
Bud Piel, Michigan sophomore, ran
second to Smith most of the distance
in the 220, but was caught shortly
before the end by Jack Leutritz, who
had earlier run second in the 440,
and the trio gave Michigan its only
sweep of the afternoon.
Kelley led for the entire route in
both the high and low hurdles. In
the highs, Stan came out slightly
ahead of Dick Reising and Dan Olsen
of Illinois, and moved away from
them inch by inch, to finish two
yards ahead in the relatively slow
time of 15 seconds.
Breidenbach broke in front in the
quarter-mile and stayed there. Jim
Rae, Wolverine basketball captain,
was second until the 250 yard mark,
and then faded badly, with Illinois'
Burt Downs taking over. Jack Leu-
tritz remained behind most of the
race, then put on a fine finishing
kick to overtake Downs and finish
10 yards behind Breidenbach who
ran 48.6, just two-tenths of a second
above the meet record.

to give Illinois a 4-3 lead.
Johnny Drish kept the rally alive
with a two -bagger to left-center and
singles by pitcher Johnny Pacotti and
Drechsler provided the Illini with two
more runs.
Coach Wally Roettger's team sent
Barry to the showers in the seventh.
Evers walked, Bill Hapac was safe
on Barry's error and Milosevich
chipped in with an infield hit to fill
the bases. Barry then hit Brewer to
force in a run and, with no one out,
was yanked in favor of Mickey Stod-
dard by Coach Fisher.
Infield outs by Drish and Liz As-
troth brought in two more runs be-
fore Stoddard forced Pacotti to fly
out and end the inning. The win-
ners scored once more in the eighth.
An abortive ninth-inning rally net-
ted Michigan three runs. Steppon
walked, Trosko came through with
his second hit of the day, and George
Ruehle walked to load the bases.
Steppon and Trosko romped home
on pinch-hitter Don Holman's line
hit to left, and Ruehle promptly fol-
lowed them when Drechsler again
let the ball elude him.

the score 2-1 when Durant sunk a
long 35-foot putt on the 18th hole
to give him a birdie and the hole,
The two cap)tains, Palmer and
Chick Evans , met in the number one
match of the day and it was a ter-
rific battle all the way. Palmer led
three-up at the turn but they fin-
ished the back nine all even as
Evans rallied to take 1/2 point. Pal-
mer had a 76 and Evans a 79.
Emery, shooting against Bill Gil-
bert, had a par 36 on the first nine
and whirled around the home round
in 35 by virtue of a birdie on the
18th hole to take 21/2 points. Gilbert
shot a 74.
Michigan took another singles
match as Bill Black, playing in the
number three slot, shot a 77 as Frank
Bellino carded 78. Black won two
points in this match.
Goodwin Clark, who has yet to
be beaten in collegiate play, scored
the only sweep of the afternoon as
he whipped Tony Montonaro, Ohio's
wrestler-golfer, 3-0. Three up with
two holes to go, the boys walked in
because of the crowded fairways.
Lynn Riess made up a two hole

deficit on the first nine to shave
one point from Sam Bartchy who
shot a 76 against Riess' 77.
Bill Black and Dave Osler, playing
in the best ball foursomes, shot an
80 and 83 respectively as they lost
three points . . . Clark and Riess,
who also dropped three points in the
doubles matches, shot an 80 and 78.

Where Oh Where .. .
BIMELECH, Bimelech, Bimelech.
wherefore art thou Bimelech?
And the answer came back-second.
Well, we suppose that any-
thing can happen now. The
Yankees will probably lose the
pennant, and if things keep up
it'll be the St. Louis Browns
who'll win it. What else can you
expect when a "second-rate"
horse (the quotes are used ad-
visedly) comes back from a bad
beating on Tuesday to win on
From all reports there can be no
excuse for Bimelech yesterday in
the Derby. The track was fast-and
Big Bim is a fast-track runner. He
got a clean break and was riding
along in third place when he reached
the three-eighths mark. He made
his bid later and came through. And
he was beaten in the stretch by a
gallant Gallahadion. And Gallaha-
dion, mind you, was beaten by this
"same" held-up Bimelech by two
lengths in the Derby trial on Tues-
day over a mile and an eighth, just
220 yards short of the Derby dis-
Our guess is that Bimelech
will come back to win the Preak-
ness and go on to become a good,
possibly a great, horse. He can
run faster than 2:05 (surprising-
ly slow time) ; it may be that it
is distance that stands in his

T'S pretty difficult to feel sorry
for an octogenarian who has had
four Derby winners already, and so
we don't; but all the same we won-
der how Bimelech's losing will af-

too weak to allow him to come to
the race and the stunning defeat
may bring its repercussions.
DURING the recent press conven-
tion which has brought flocks of
high school journalists into Ann Ar-
bor, a couple of the enterprising
lads strayed up to the Union billiard
room. Behind the counter was rib-
ald Red Ingalls who spends his time
working when it doesn't interfere J
with his other activities.
Well, one of the lads stepped
up to him (he was wearing his
Block M) and asked for his
autograph. The big redhead
was proud as a peacock, sprawl-
ed his John Hancock over the
page and smiled benignly at the
The kid looked down at the sig-
nature and immediately ripped the
page from his book. "Ingalls," he
scoffed with all the scorn of youth,
"I don't want that one after the way
he played."
Little does the kid know that In-
galls isn't as bad as all that.

AFTER the track meet yesterday,
the loud speaker system was left
on the field. Bill Watson, last year's
track captain, was working out and
was invited by some local buffoons
who were around, to render some-
thing. The grinning Watson stepped
up, tore off a few bars of "Old Man
River" and has thereby earned the
name. Bill "Robeson" Watson. In
short, he's got a fine voice.
Watson is now training for a
Michigan decathlon, to be held
sometime in May. Now, if he ever
needs a few extra points to win, he
can insist that the authorities add
a singing contest.
Phi Delt Pitcher
Hurls Two-Hitter

Chuck Solar, Phi Delta Theta hurl-
er, turned in the feature performance
of a six-game Intramural softball
card yesterday by limiting Sigma Nu
to two hits in a 9-1 Phi Delt victory.
Jack Meyer caught for the winners,
Bob Bragg pitched for Sigma Nu,
with George Cheffey and Dick Mein-
ke dividing the catching duties.
