ment. An erratic performer, Blum-
enfeld's record this spring indicates
that he's not on top of his game as;
yet. However, he has won eight out
of eleven matches and will be a very
tough opponent for Michigan's num-
ber two man, Tom Gamon.
Sweetina, Wayne's third man, is one
of the steadiest college players in thel
country. In his first two years on
the varsity, he lost bit one match,
winning thirty-nine. Sweetina at
one time was the Detroit High School,
City Junior, and State doubles cham-
pion, and the Wolverine number four
man, Harry Kohl, will have to play
way above the form he has shown
heretofore to win.
Three Singles
The rest of the singles players on
the Wayne team are little better than
average, and it's in the fourth, fifth,
and sixth singles spots where the
Wolverines will be expected to pick
up three points.
On these matches, Michigan's
Wayne Stille will meet Jack Rice;
Bob Brewer, tireless Wolverine left
hander, plays Ed Granger and Bob
Jeffers of Michigan opposes Harmon
Burns of Wayne.
Doubles To Decide Match
With the six singles matches ex-
pected to be split, the doubles will
undoubtedly decide the match. Durst
and Gamon take on Maul and Blum-
enfeld in the number one match,
Jim Tobin and Stille meet Sweetina
and Rice in the second doubles en-
counter with Bud Dober and Bob
Jeffers playing number three doubles
against the Wayne combination of
Ed Granger and Elmer Miller.
Yearlings Win Meet
. Copping 10 events and tying for
another, Coach Chester Stackhouse's
yearling track team downed Wiscon-
sin's freshmen in a telegraphic meet,'
68-46, last week.
The next competition for the fu-
ture varsity cindermen is the Iowa
telegraphic meet this Saturday.


Crisler's Ends
To Be Strong
For '40 Team
Three r1eturning lettermen and a
reserve award winner, along with
some good freshmen prospects give
end coach Bennie Oosterbaan plenty
of material from which to develop
the flankers for Fritz Crisler's 1940
grid machine.
Ed Frutig, Ed Czak and Joe Rogers
are the varsity men who will be
back next, fall, with reserve Harlin
Fraumann the other experienced
candidate. Joe Bosza, a, squad-mem-
ber last year, will also be back. Only
Frutig and Fraumann of the four
veterans have reported for spring
Frutig appeared at but few ses-
sions, but when he did he performed
with a poise gained from his added
year of experience that should make
him a great prospect for next fall.
Yearlings Lck Speed
A lack of speed is the only great
fault of a fine.crop of yearling ends.
Rudy Smeja, a big rugged Chicago
boy, has blocked well and shows
much promise. Otto Chady, from
Highland Park, has been hampered
by injuries during much of' the
spring, but shows a willingness to
work and is rated a good prospect.
Another Chicago boy, John Kar-
wales; Phil Sharpe, from Lakewood,
Ohio, and Phil Hall, the latter han-
dicapped by a knee injury which
has kept him on the sidelines much
of the time, are other promising
first-year men.
Squad Divided For Game
Coach Crisler divided his gridders
into two squads yesterday for the
intra-squad contest at the Stadium
Saturday. The Blue roster includes:
Ends: Fraumann, Sharpe, Karwales,
and Grant; tackles: Sengel, Wis-
tert and Ford; guards: Thompson,
Thomas, Ireland and Van Wagnen;
centers: Kennedy, Keating, Woytek
and Wilson; halfbacks: Wise, Lock-
ard, Grieg, Dillingham and Dawley;
quarterbacks: Madar . and Megreg-
ian; fullbacks: Miller, Grissen and
The White squad: Ends, Smeja,
Chady, Hall and Flake; tackles: Kel-
to, Flora, Gritis and Steele; guards:
Melzow, Cunningham, Seltzer, Hil-
debrand, Thar and Davanzis; cen-
ters: Ingalls, Schwayder and Ander-
son; halfbacks: Call, Krejsa, Salva-
terra, Gannatal and Day; quarter-
backs: Ceithaml and Manolakas;
fullbacks: Windle, Ulak and West.

And Stoddard Hit Hard
(Continued from Page 1)
Mike Sofiak came through with a
hit' to right that scored Harms.
Davie Nelson worked pitcher Ray
Dennis for a base on balls, anduwhen
third baseman Ray Grady fumbled
Bill Steppon's grounder, the bases
were full1.
Freddie Trosko then unloaded a
single to center to chase home So-
fiak and Nelson and bring Michigan
to within one run of Normal. But
the best Bud Chamberlain could do
was a lofty fly to Chuck Oxley in
left field to end the game.
Coach Ray Fisher had planned to
start left-hander Mase Gould against
the Ypsi team, but the cold weather
and soggy pitching mound forced
the Wolverine mentor to call off his
rookie hurler's debut for a more
favorable afternoon.
Stoddard Knocked From Box
Mickey Stoddard, who drew the
starting assignment, gave up two
runs in the four-inning stretch he
worked. ThebHurons scoredtinathe
first on a base on balls to Walt
Siera, a passed ball, a wild pitch and
Oxley's single, and chalked up a
cheap run in the fourth.
A pass to Dennis, sandwiched be-
tween hits by Grady and Johnny
Shada filled the bases. With Siera
at bat and two men out, Harms
tried to pick Shada off first base.
When the Huron shortstop barged
into Ruehle in an attempt to regain
the base, Grady sneaked home just
ahead of Ruehle's off-balance throw
to give Normal a 2-0 lead.
Michigan got one run back in the
fifth on Trosko's single, a stolen
base and a base hit by Ruehle, and
tied the score in the seventh on hits
by Chamberlain, Ruehle and Lyle
Normal regained the lead in their
half of the inning, however, when
Mike Drusbacky's single scored Joe
Borovich, who had walked.
Once more the Wolverines pulled
up with the Hurons in the eighth
by virtue of Steppon's single, a walk
to Chamberlain and Ruehle's third
safety of the day, only to have the
winners blast Netherton, Michigan's
third pitcher for the afternoon, in
the last of the eighth.
Homer Breaks Tie
With the score tied at 3-3, pitcher
Dennis clouted one of Tommy's fast
balls over the 318-foot fence ir
right-center field for a home run.
Shada was then retired but Andy
Newlands walked and Siera scratch-
ed a single to short. Borovich poppec
to Sofiak, but Oxley sent another
of Netherton's pitches out of the
park to cinch the game for Ypsi.

has yet to lose this year.
Bill Black shot a two over par 74

sensation who carded a four-under-

course. Bill has found his game this
year and has been playing in the
three and four position consistently.
Predicting the outcome would be
mighty hard, Coach Courtright con-
fessed, "but it's a sure thing that
this will be one of our toughest
matches of the season."

In The Mfjors

Pittsburgh's track team will fight
fire with .fire when it invades Ferry
Field for a dual meet with Coach
Ken Doherty's Wolverine cindermen
In the past several years the na-
tion's track experts have come to
regard the word Michigan as being
synonymous with perfectly-balanced
cindersquad powerhouses. Through
their team balance the Wolverines
have risen to the peak of Midwestern
track circles and have taken their
place as one of the country's fore-
most track powers.
But in the Pittsburgh Panthers
Michigan will meet its counterpart.
For the Pittmen, too, depend on
their near-perfect balance and depth
of material. The Panthers possess
their individual standouts but like
Michigan it is balance wherein lies
the power which has led them to ten
straight dual meet triumphs.
Especially strong in the dashes and
field events, the Pittmen boast some
of the East's best trackmen. Dusty
Rhoades, one of the Panthers' soph-
omore sensations, is a top-fligh
pole-vaulter, who has soared 13 feet
six inches, copping, the Penn Relays
with that effort.
A 50-foot shot-putter, senior John
Bazyk will be the favorite to cop
this event here Saturday, and will
also double in the discus throw.
Another sophomore, Jim Elliott,
is the odds-on choice to take the
javelin throw. State-titleholder in
this event, the husky Elliot has al-
ready heaved the javelin 190 feet
this year and is expected to top 200.
Forming a formidable sprint duo,
the powerful speedster, Hap Stickel,
and Larry Tregoning, will score cer-
tain points for the Panthers if Wol-
verine Alan Smith's turned ankle

Blazing Frank Ohl is perhaps Pitt's

try's best quarter-milers the flying
