in the discus when Archie Harris,
Indiana's great weight star, heaved
the disc 166 feet 5% inches to add
almost six feet to the mark Bill Wat-
son set up in Ann Arbor last year.
As far as records go, however,
that was all. A stiff wind blowing
down the home stretch brought ter-
rifically fast times in the short
events but produced exactly opposite
results when it came to the longer
Michigan's runners on the whole
performed brilliantly. Each of the
440-yard trial heats, for example,
was won by Wolverines. Phil Bal-
yeat came from far behind to nip
Purdue's Al Schakelton at the tape
In :49.5 in the first heat. Warren
Breidenbach, defending quarter-mile
king, eased along all by himself in
:48.4 in the second, and Jack Leut-
ritz whipped Ohio's veteran, Jack
Sulzman, after a great stretch battle
to snatch the third in :48.8,
Hogan Second To Kane
In the half-mile tests, Michigan
also succeeded in placing three men
in the finals. Dye Hogan ran second
to Indiana's distance mainstay,
Campbell Kane, while Johnny Kautz,
the Wolverine sophomore, and Tom
Jester, who will run the two-mile
tomorrow, also managed to survive
their trials.
The grand comeback of dashman
Al Smith was one of the features
of this afternoon's program. Aided
by the wind, he won his heat in the
century with a speedy :09.7 and came
back later to take a 220-yard trial
in 21. Al Piel, sophomore, also
qualified in the furlong sprint.
Smith Vs. Piker
Even with times like those, how-
ever, Smith is in for the battle of
his life tomorrow when he meets
Northwestern's Myron Piker, cen-
tury winner last year who finished
with the same timings as the Wol-
verine today; George Franck from
Minnesota, and Cochran.
One sore spot in the Michigan
opening-day picture came in hurdle
events. Stan Kelley turned up with
a sore leg and drove and pressed
through both highs and lows, just
managing to qualify in each event.
Michigan's hurdling mainstay must
show vast improvement to live up
to expectations and stay in the run-
ning when the finals get under way.
Barnard In Hurdles
Stan was the only Michigan run-
ner to come through the high hur-
dles test, but in the lows, three
Wolverines will be among the six
starters tomorrow. Bob Barnard,
short-legged junior, and Jeff Hal,
another junior, both survived today's
trial heats,
In the field events, Michigan's
squadmanaged to gain six qualify-
ing positions. Big George Ostroot
wound up third in the discus and
seventh in today's shot put tryouts.
Both Hook and Tom Lawton fin-
ished ninth and tenth in the shot.
Fred Culver came in seventh among
the broad jumpers, while Perry Kim-
erer ended in the same place in
the javelin competition with a toss
of 176 feet nine inches, eight feet
farther than his previous best dis-
tance of the year.
A picture of the freshman track
team will be taken at Ferry Field
at 5 p.m. Tuesday. All members
of the freshman squad are re-
quested to be present.
Coach Stackhouse


Ry Cochran, spearhead of the
Indiana track team, qualified in
four events in the Big Ten prelim-
inaries yesterday.

the ice in the fifth. Two men were
out when George Ruehle walloped
a three-bagger to right field. George
Harms then singled to center to drive
in Ruehle with Michigan's only run.
Bond Comes Through
Bond gave a marvelous exhibition
of clutch pitching when he pulled
himself out of a bad hole in the sixth
Capt. Frank Knox and Bob Grono
walked and Al Burkstrand beat out
an infield hit to fill the bases with
no one out.
The slender righthander then
fanned Phil Grossman, forced George
Boerner to pop to Ruehle at first,
and Lingan to fly to the outfield to
retire the Gophers scoreless.
Anderson Ties Score
Irked by his mates' inability to
produce any runs for him, Anderson
took matters into his own hands and
drove in the tally that tied the score
in the seventh. George Sweeney
singled and moved up on Frank Fust's
sacrifice bunt. Anderson then came
through with a hit over secor d base
to make the score 1-1.
The Wolverines still have a chance
to end the season near the top of
the Big Ten standings when they
wind up their Conference schedule
with the Gophers tomorrow. On the
way home from Minnesota the Var-
sity will stop off at Notre Dame for
an engagement with the Irish, Mon-

BOSTON, May 24.--k)-Hammer-

defended his world welterweight ti-
tle tonight for the 17th time with

four times.

his rival, demonstrated his wide su-
periority as soon as the opening
round got under way. He was jarred
several times by Zennelli's wide and
hard rights but every time he was
stung, he avenged himself by bat-
tering his opponent about the head
in unmerciful fashion.
Zennelli dropped for the first time
under a heavy barrage of hooks to
the head in the second round. He
found the canvas again in the third
and dropped twice in the fifth ses-
sion before Referee Johnny Martin
intervened on Zennelli's behalf af-
ter a minute and a half of one-sided
action, during which the champion
landed at least a dozen blows

title-holder, was edged out by Sher-
wood Gorenstein of. Wisconsin, 6-4,

unable to muster the necessary two1
points to defeat the Badger star.
Wayne Stille, Michigan number-
four man, never found himself
against Lewis of Ohio State. Lewis'
superior ground strokes kept Stille
away from the net and the Buckeye
netter wo neasily, 6-1, 6-2.
Close Doubles Match.
The hardest-fought match of the'
afternoon found Harrison O'Neil and
Harry Hall of Northwestern defeat-
ing Tobin and Stille, 11-9, 9-7. The

sets, 6-2, 6-0. Sawyier ran his op-

placed shot.

The meet has narrowed down to
a dual match between Northwestern
and the Marodns, defending Confer-
ence champions. The Wildcats are
leading the parade with 16 points;
Chicago is second with 15; Ohio
State with seven is in third place

BigT en Post-Season'
Ban May Be Lifted
EVANSTON, Ill., May 24.-(,')--A
report that the Western Conference
may soon go on record as favoring a
post-season football game for the
Big Ten champion circulated here
today as Conference athletic direc-
tors and gridiron coaches discussed
1943 football schedules.
A post-season game for the Big
Ten champion was suggested some
years ago but was voted down as
evidence of overemphasis. There
long has been much sentiment on
the West Coast in favor of the Big
Ten football champion annually
meeting the Pacific Coast champion
in the Rose Bowl.
The athletic directors and gridiron
coaches reportedly ran into difficulty
lining up games for Iowa, Purdue
and Indiana-schools with stadia of
comparatively small seating capa-
