DAILY DOUBLE

Just Like Charlie.. .
EVANSTON, Ill., May 25.-Michi-
gan's brilliant triumph here today
came none too early for weary Coach
Ken Doherty.
Never having fully recovered from
his Des Moines illness, Ken boarded
the train tonight with one thought
in mind, a complete and much need-
ed rest. Instead of following the
doctor's orders and staying home in
bed when he returned from the Iowa
hospital, Ken immediately went to
work with the team. He had big
meets ahead, and couldn't waste time
around the house.
With a thermos jug filled with milk
or hot chocolate, he sat out in the
field every afternoon. And with pen-
cil and paper, he stayed up late al-I
most every evening worrying about
what his team could and would do.
Ken didn't want to lose this meet,
not in his first year when the team
had won three straight before him.
And things worked right today for
the affable Wolverine mentor. He

won . . just like Charley Hoyt
would have done.
Orchids go to Dye Hogan, who
finished third in the half mile run.
In his last collegiate appearance, Ho-
gan turned in the best performance
of his career, a 1:53 flat which car-
ried him into third place behind Bux-
ton and Kane. Kautz ran a strange
race today. After the first 100 yards,
he got in Kane's way, and the big
Hoosier star promptly pushed him
ahead about five yards . . . It was a
new sensation for sophomore Johnny
. . . There he was, leading the pack
in the first lap of the race . . . Never
having set the pace before in his life,
Kautz just kept on going, worrying,
and not knowing exactly what to
do . . . Well, the leaders passed him
and in the stretch his worries caught
up with him . . . He tied up and let
Hoke of Indiana pass at a very slow
pace to finish fifth.
Smith's loss in the century to Pik-
er was so close that many observers
still have a feeling that tomorrow's
photo finish pictures of the meet
will prove different results.
Well, they proved again today that
Evanston isn't a track town. A meet
that usually draws at least 10 or 12,000
in Ann Arbor, got 5,000 out today in
perfect weather. In 1936 they held
the Olympic trials here in the same
stadium, and had the same sort of
crowd . .

the score with a triple to left cen-
ter.
With two out in the ninth, Frank
Knox, Gopher captain, smashed a
double to left and scored a moment
later when Bud Chamberlain, Wol-
verine third baseman, erred on
Grono's grounder.
Charley Pink, Michigan captain,
playing in his last Big Ten contest,
had a great day at the plate, con-
necting for three hits, including a
triple and a home run, in four trips
to the platter. He scored after his
triple in the fifth on Mike Sofiak's
fly to center field. His homer came
in the seventh with the bases empty.
Davey Nelson also homered for
the Wolverines. Michigan scored its
other tally in the opening stanza on
three walks and an infield single by
Chamberlain.

sen held the lead throughout the
hurdle race, with Michigan's Stan
Kelley staying close behind. But Ol-
sen clipped the last hurdle, went
tumbling over on his stomach, and
Kelley continued on to win. Follow-
ing in third was Jeff Hall, while Bob
Barnard brought the fourth place
points to the Wolverines.
The Al Smith and Myron Piker
duel was all that it was expected to
be. Northwestern's little red-headed
star flashed through the century in
:09.7 today to grab a blanket deci-
sion from the speedy Wolverine. But
Smith came back in the 220 to gain
the same sort of triumph over Piker.
The Wildcat held a two-foot lead
over the first 150 yards, but Smith
dug in at that point and pulled closer
and closer to his flying foe, just man-
aging to throw his chest against the
tape first.
Don Canham gained Michigan its
fourth individual title as he leaped
6 feet 4%8 inches to snatch the high
jump event. His attempts to go
higher and possibly better the pres-
ent Conference record, 6 feet 7/
inches, held by Ohio's Dave Albrit-
ton, however, were unsuccessful.
The half-mile found Ed B3uyton
whipping Kane's final drive to de-
fend the crown he won in Ann Arbor
last May. The Wisconsin ace took
the pace away from Michigan's
Johnny Kautz after the first quar-
ter and never was headed. Dye Ho-
gan, making his last Conference ap-
pearance, followed Kane to the tape.
Kautz, unaccustomed to setting the
pace, tied up in the stretch and fin-
ished fifth behind Indiana's Bob
Hoke.
Ed Smith, lanky Badger hurdler,
won the highs today in :14.4. Kelley
got off to a bad start, knocking over
the second hurdle, but continued on
to finish fourth.
The closing mile relay event left
the sole rough spot on Michigan's
highly successful week-end. With
the team title already in the bag,
the favored Wolverine quartet fell
before the strong Minnesota quar-
ter-milers.
Phil Balyeat, opening the Michi-
gan attack, gave ,Bill Dobson a five-
yard lead. But the Wolverine soph-
omore, nervous and pressing hard,
tied up, and when Leutritz got the
baton, he was in sixth place, 10 yards
behind Gopher Bill Garrity. Even
with Leutritz's great comeback and
Breidenbach's :47.6 anchor lap,
however, the Gophers, with dash-
man and grid star George Franck

got off to a poor start and were
never able to head off their more ex-
perienced opponents.

Greenberg, Northwestern's sopho-
more star, replaced Chicago's Chet
Murphy as Western Conference
singles champion by defeating Charles
Shostrum, Chicago's number 1 play-
er, 6-1, 7-5. Greenberg is National
Public Parks title holder, and was an
odds-on favorite to win the Big Ten
crown.
Northwestern's victory marked the
first time since 1936 that the Wild-
cats have won the crown. It also
ended Chicago's three-year reign as
tennis kings of the Big Ten.
