the 15th hole when the Buckeye
three-putted. On even terms now,
they halved the next two.
On the 18th and last hole, Gilbert's
second shot was 20 feet from the
cup. Palmer ran into difficulty as
he pushed his second into some deep
grass, with a downhill lie, at the edge
of a trap.

He came out of it too strong on
his third shot, but chipped a 50-

stopped. He had to take a bogie 5
on the hole as Gilbert easily made
his par to win the match and the
Big Ten title, 298-299.
In the best four-man team totals,
the Illini held on to the lead they
had, gained at the half-way mark

Bill Black added a 76 and an 81

shot 80-84 and Riess 85-86.

Ceithami Wins Alumni Grid Award

don wirt.,Ii;,tern'

Capt. Bob Palmer narrowly
missed the Big Ten hall of fame
yesterday as he finished second to
Ohio State's Bill Gilbert for the
individual golf championship at
the Conference meet in Columbus.
Palmer, eight strokes behind as
play began, tied the Buckeye on
the 17th but blew up on the final
hole to take a 299 against Gilbert's
Two-Mile Relay Mark
Broken By Freshman
Coach Chester Stackhouse's year-
ling trackmen yesterday added to
their year-long assault of freshman
cinderpath records as a two-mile re-
lay team shattered by more than 14
seconds the former mark established
last year.
The record-making quartet, made
up of Dave Matthews, John Purdue,
Bob Ufer and Quentin Brelsford, ran
the distance in 7:54.8 minutes, bet-
tering the old mark of 8:09 made by
Johnny Kautz, Bill Ackerman, Rich-
ard Fogg and Bill Leake.

A1hu ii Award ...
At 5 p.m. yesterday, Mcia'
football forces gathered in the Union
to hear the announcement of the
Chicago Alumni award winner for
They held one of those meet-
ings where a half dozen guys sit
around biting their nails and the
rest just sit around. Crisler had
seen to it earlier this week that
all his men did not lose their
nails. ie named a list of eligibles
that included six or possibly seven
And when Wally Weber opene l the
meeting with a short talk about, the
history of the award, it was evident
that the gridders weren't interested
in a history lesson. Even the great
tonsilorial expert couldn't keep their
minds from wondering. The huskies
had come for one purpose, and that's
what they kept thinking about.
Then Weber introduced Meyer Mor-
ton, the Western Conference grid
official and Chicago Alumni repre-
sentative. For a moment, it seemed
as though Morton was going to get
right to the point. Almost at the
very beginning, he announced a list
of seven men who had been considered
for the award. As he called out each
one, a heart beat faster and about
40 pairs of eyes lighted on a hopeful
individual. He named Call first. Then'
Ingalls and Ceithaml. And at that
point he commented that those two
were the only gridders with perfect
attendance records during the spring
training. Following this, he men-
tioned Wise, Melzow, Wistert and
Flora as possibilities.
The gathering grew tense. Those
seven men were in the spotlight
and the finishing announcement
seemed only seconds away. But
Morton fooled them. As the
hopefuls braced themselves and
figured out what they would say
if they won, the speaker changed
the subject.
He pointed out the privileges of
being a Michigan man. He remind-


ed the gridders that they should feel
honored and happy living in a coun-
try such as this, and going to a school
such as this. He said "the men in
this room are mlucky. They have good
physiques and husky bodies." The
nervous gridders forgot their troubles
long enough to throw out their pound-
ing chests.
AinI after1 minutes, Mortoi
pu:sed fur a mment. The grid-
de.s braced temsilves 'gain. lie
unwi'apped the cloth from the
life-sizEd silver football and then
it came.
"And the winner of the award
this year is . . . George Ceith-
Te room was quiet for a moment.I
The big Chicago freshman finally
caught his bearings enough to get up
to the table. He seemed startled and
amazed. That very morning he had
expressed a pessimistic outlook. "I
haven't got a chance," he had said.
They'd be gypping someone if they
gave it to me. It'll be one of the
older fellows."
But the 185 pound quarterback
was wrong. The coaches had felt
his attitude, value, attendance,
and progress were good enough to
merit the annual award. And we
agree with the coaches. George
has done an amazing job in prac-
tice this spring. He has shown
the fact that he is just what the
doctorordered to spell Evashev-
ski next ,year. tie's a deadly blok-
er and a capable pass snatcher.
le has spark, brains and brawn.
The fact that he didn't miss a
day of practice all spring speaks
for itself.
George won't have to worry about'
the "Kiss of Death" nemesis, either,
That's an old idea now. You might
remember that after the John Jordan
and Trosko era, they felt that maybe
the award was not a good thing to
win after all. But since then, Trosko
came back brilliantly. Kodros was
elected captain and Fritz has had
a highly successful year.
Qick Wits' Award
The all-campus archery crown
went to H. F. Quick yesterday as he
topped a field of 15 entries with a
333 score. W. Phillips and G. Ro-
dechke took second and third places,
respectively. The competition was an
American Round, with each contest-
ant shooting 30 arrows at 60, 50 and
40 yard distances.
Dave Conger, who was in charge of
the tournament, gave an exhibition,
shooting a 581 score. Conger placed
third in the state meet at Lansing
last week with a 634 total.
The fraternity softball title race
took a new twist yesterday when it

Netters' Hopes
Rest Ott Tobint
Captiin Durst
Two of the men from whom Michi-
g)n expects much this coming week-
endc at Evanston. Ill., scene of the
Conference tennis cham pionships,
are Capt. Sam Durst and Jim Tobin.
This year Durst has blossomed
forth into one of the three or four
fest number one men in the Big Ten.
'The slender southpaw has beaten
such ollutstanding netters as Buck
Shane of Kalamazoo, Charles Sho-
strom of Chicago, Western State's
ace Gene Russell, and one of Dc-
troit's best, Bill Maul of Wayne.
I}nrst Lacks Confidence
You night think that these vic-
tories immeasurably increased the
Wolverine captain's confidence in
himself, but unfortunately that is not
the case. His recent loss to Perkins,
a mediocre man from Michigan State,
indicates that Durst as yet hasn't
acquired the proper mental attitude
so necessary for a winning tennis
Why he should lack confidence is
indeed a mystery.
If he begins to realize that he has'
a net game second to few, and utiliz-
es it to the fullest extent, he should
go to the semi-finals of his tourna-
ment and pick up more than a few
valuable points for the team.
Tobin Holds Key
Jim Tobin really holds the key to
Michigan's slim title hopes. For a
period of six weeks, early in the sem-
ester, Tobin labored under the mis-
conception that he had water on the
knee. Only when it was discovered
that he had a torn cartilage instead,
did Tobin and Coach Weir revive
their previously shattered hopes of a
big season for Jim and Michigan.
Last year, Jim Tobin won the num-
ber two championship of the Big
Ten and was looking forward to even
bigger things this spring. Despite
the fact that he has been hobbling
around on a knee and a half, the
Detroit Junior has been hitting the
ball very well. In the Wayne and
Michigan State matches, Tobin
played number four, the position Weir
plans to play him at in the confer'-
enece Chamipionship.
Tobin also will be playing number
two doubles with Wayne Stille, and
should the knee bear up, this com-
bination can very easily take the
number two doubles title. Coach
Weir and Michigan tennis fans are
fervently hoping that Jim has had
his share of tough luck. The gods
should be smiling upon him now, and
if they do, the squad will benefit
Each school in the Big Ten meet
will be represented by six singles
men and three doubles teams. Nine
separate tournaments will be run off
with each player entered in his own
ranked contest.

hampered by the small number of

The husky, 19-year-old youth mod-
esly revealed a high school record
that includes two other trophies-the
Kiwanis Club Trophy as the most
valuable player on the Lindblon,
Chicago, High School siuad, and the

team lost only two games, and cap-
tain in his senior year.

cials. He has come to Ann Arbor to
make the award every year since 1925,
when the Chicago Alumni Club made
its first presentation to Ray Baer,

is made, Morton said, on the basis of
attendance, attitude, value to the
team, and general improvement dur-
ing the spring preparation for the
fall campaign. In his presentation
speech, Morton pointed out that next

Several Big Ten Records Threatened
To Fall In Conference Outdoor Meet

(Editor's Note: This is the first of'
two articles surveying the Western
Conference track and field champion-
ships to be held Friday and Saturday
at Evanston, Illinois:)
At least four conference records
will be placed in great jeopardy at
the 40th Annual Big Ten track meet,
in which Michigan will be aiming for
its fourth consecutive team title, this
weekend. The marks most likely to
fall before the onslaught of some of
the nation's finest trackmen are the
high .iump, 440-yard dash, discus
throw and mile relay standards.
100-Yard&Dash: Last year's cham-
pion, Myron Piker, of Northwestern,
is back again to defend his 'rown,
and will he the speedster to beat in
this event. The Wildcat flash and
George Franck of Minnesota football
fame have turned in the best time
for the outdoor season to date with
9.8 performances. Michigan's Al
Smith and Bud Piel, and Chicago's
John Davenport all can travel the
distance consistently under 10 sec-
220-Yard Dash: Wolverine Smith
looms as a potential winner here, as
he took second last year and has a

best mark of 21.2. Ted Tycocki of
Purdue has the outdoor season's fast-
est time of 21.4. Last year's fourth-
place winner, Carl Culver, and sopho-
more Piel, have both done 21.5, and
will fight it out with Piker, Franck,
and Burt Downs of Illinois for valu-
able points.
440-Yard Dash: Having already
bettered the 24-year old Conference
record of 47.4 with a sensational 47.2
performance against Pittsburgh last
week. Michigan's smooth-striding
Warren Breidenbach will be favored
to shatter the existing mark, but it
may take more than this to win the
event. For Roy Cochran of Indiana
beat the Wolverine in the indoor meet,
while running the World's record in-
door time of 48.2. Michigan's Jack
Leutritz, Ohio's Capt. Jack Sulzman,
and Illinois' Capt. Will McCown are
other strong threats.
880-Yard Run: With a plethora of
good half-milers pointing for the
race, this event appears to be a toss-
up. The Maize and Blue has a good'
bet in Dye Hogan who possesses the
season's best time of 1:53.8, while
Indiana's Campbell Kane clipped off1
1:53 last year as a freshman. Last
year's winner, Ed Buxton of Wiscon-
sin, also copped the indoor title this
year, and will be highly respected by
the rest of the field. Hogan's run-
ning mate, sophomore Johnny Kautz,
Ohio's Les Eisenhart, and Purdue's
Ed Holderman will also figure im-
portantly in the event.
Mile Run: Sophomore Kane copped
the Conference indoor event with a
4:14.3 performance, but has not yet
proven conclusively he can double in
both (lie mile and half-mile events.
Beaten by the Hoosier flash indoors,
Purdue's Ed Holderman is neverthe-
less a very capable miler who has
done 4:13.2 for the distance. Michi-
gan's Ed Barrett who placed third
both outdoors and indoors, and Karl
Wisner who took fifth outdoors, In-
diana's Ed Hedges and Wayne Tolli-
ver and Ohio's Eisenhart complete a
very good field.
Two-Mile Run: With Michigan's

Capt. Ralph Schwarzkopf definitelyf
out of the meet due to his recent
streptococcic throat infection, this
event produces no outstanding fav-
orite. Minnesota's Irv Liljegren has
turned in the best time to date of
9:28.5. Michigan's transformed half-
miler, Tom Jester, and his teammate,
sophomore Bill Ackerman, and Brad
Heyl rate well, as do Ohio's Gene
Kiracofe, Indiana's Hedges and T'oli-
ver and Wisconsin's Bill Farin, who
placed third imdoors to Sliwarzkopl
and Hedges.



120-Yard hiigh i ur dlcs: A wide was di'covered that Phi Beta Delta,

slight favorite. Michigan's Stan Kel- final victory over Delta Kappa Epsi-

Roy Cochran, who has turned in a
best time of 23.1. Olsen, Kelley, Sulz-

Cochran hard.
