the Buckeyes' 10 hits. Maynard how-
ever, kept them fairly well scattered
and held the Ohio team to five runs.
Only once was the Michigan team
behind and that was in the third in-
ning. The breathing spell for the
Buckeye team didn't last very long,
as in the fifth inning the Wolverines
scored to put themselves in the lead.
Michigan's hitting attack was not
only made upi of the usual singles
and doubles but of home runs, too.
Nelson, Holman and Christiansen
each were given credit for a circuit
clout. Christiansen is a newcomer
to the Wolverine lineup and is sub-
stituting for Capt. Bill Steppon.
The Wolverines turned in three
sparkling double plays to to take the
fielding honors for the day. Cham-
berlain, Sofiak and Ruehle account-
ed for every one of the double plays
to pull Stoddard out of some very
tough' spots.
The game was going along com-
paratively smoothly until the sev-
enth inning when all of a sudden the
Wolverine bats exploded. Three runs
crossed the plate and before the
ninth inning was over the Michigan
fence-busters had tallied seven more
runs.
This marked the Wolverines' third
straight Conference win, while it
was Ohio's second loss in five con-
ference starts.

j DAILY DOUBLE

Trackmen Find Netters, Illini In Home Debut;

(This week's Daily Doubles are being
written by the members of the junior
sports staff. Today's columnnconsti-
tutes the first in a series of one article
by Gene Gribbroek who knows nothing
about basketball or jai-alai.)
Derby Dope .
Col. Matt Winn stages his big show
today, and the good Colonel expects
some 100,000 assorted turf followers
ad respectable citizens to jam the
Downs for the 67th running of the
Kentucky Derby.
It's a safe bet, and probably the
only safe bet, that out of those 100,000
there's only a select minority that
thinks it has the winner. The rest are
as confused as we are, because this
year there's no Bimelech to carry
away the sucker money. For the first
time in four years the crowd hasn't a
sure thing.
Even the turf writers are shyingI
away from The Choice this time,
giving out with garbled stories that
tell the boys in the horse rooms
little more than the weather re-
ports. But we're not so smart. No-
body'll sink their last dollar on
our choice, so here it is. Whirlaway.
Warren Wright's big colt trailed in
his last two starts, but he'll be the
crowd's favorite before the 11-horse
field goes to the post. Tls in spite
of the fact that Our Boots, who
finished six lengths in front of Whirl-
away two weeks ago in the Blue Grass
Stakes at Keeneland, and Porter's
Cap, Santa Anita Derby winner, have
been carrying shorter odds up until
now.
The money on Whirlaway this
afternoon will be'riding squarely onJ
the small Italian shoulders of jock-
ey Eddie Arcaro, brought in by
trainer Ben Jones to give the
Wright colt the ride he needs. It
was a bad ride on the turns that
lost Whirlaway his last two races,
and the crowd knows that Arcaro
desn't want that kind of mistake.
Young Wendell Eads, who was up
on the Whirl when he chased Our
Boots and when he just missed nos-
ing out Blue Pair earlier in the week,
has borne most of the blame for the
losses. He let the colt make his bid
too early in his Derby trial at Church-
ill Downs, took him wide around the
last turn, and then brought him over
to the inside in the stretch, losing
about eight lengths in the process and
following Blue Pair under the wire
less than a length back.
Whether Eads was wrong, or just
Tiger Bats Explode
To Hit Athletics, 15-1
DETROIT, May, 2.--VP)-Detroit's
hitters stayed hot for a fourth
straight day and with Schoolboy
Rowe turning in a pitching gem and
Rudy York firing his fifth home run,
the Tigers massacred the Philadelphia
Athletics 15 to 1 in the series open-
er today.
The Tigers collected 17 hits off
three Athletic pitchers to bring their
total for the last four days to 58
blows and Rowe, winning his first
game of, the year, pitched four-hit
ball until the ninth, when he permit-
ted three singles for Philadelphia's
only run.
Leading the Tiger offensive were
Charley Gehringer with four singles
and Frankie Croucher with two sin-
gles and a double. Croucher's hot
streak now has given him 11 hits in
his last 19 times at bat.

following Jones's orders, the betters
seem to like Whirlaway's chances
a lot better with the shrewd Arcaro
up.
Incidentally, the news that Don
Meade, who was to have ridden Lit-
tle Beans, cannot break away from
his Jamaica contract for the clas-
sic broke up a beautiful duel be-
tween Meade and Arcaro. The two
top jockeys of the century had a
natural in the Derby assignments.
Arcaro on a favorite is generally a
winner, but the wild-riding Meade
has brought in more long-shots
than any other rider. Their Derby
showings would have settled a lot.
Gus Moore will go aboard Little
Beans, who's priced at 20-1.
If you like the big odds, and if it
rains, put something-not much-
on Market Wise. Lou Tufano will
scratch his $1,000 bargain if there'.,
a hard track, but if he goes he has
a claim. Market Wise was sired by
Broker's Tip, who never won a race
before or after he took the Derby,
and Col. E. R. Bradley, for one, thinks
this means something. Bradley is
without an entry today, which takes
something out,of the classic.
Maybe you'd like to mention Our
Boots, who beat The Whirl just
two weeks ago; or Porter's Cap,
who holds two victories over the
Wright colt; or Richard Kleberg's
Dispose, who bettered Gallahad-
ion's last year's Derby time recently
carrying five pounds more than
he'll have on him today.
But whether your money's on Por-
ter's Cap, Our Boots or Dispose, or if
you're with me on Whirlaway, or if
you're taking a shot at the easy money
with Swain or Robert Morris, the
Big 67th at Churchill Downs will be
a battle. And we'd like to be at that
stable turn when The Whirl makes
his bid.
National Volleyball
Playoffs To Be Held
Here May 15 To 17
Ann Arbor will have a golden op-
portunity to see the nation's best
volleyball teams in action May 15
to 17 when the National Volleyball
championships will take place in
the Sports Building.
The meet, held under the auspices
of the Ann Arbor Y.M.C.A., is des-
Stined to attract the best teams and
the best players from Maine to Cal-
ifornia. The Y.M.C.A. team from
Houston, Texas, won the title last
year and wil defend their honors
this year. At the same time the Los
Angeles Athletic Club team will de-
fend their open title.
This year is the first time that
college teams will be entered. The
competing teams are divided into
four divisions, namely, open, veteran,
Y.M.C.A., and collegiate. Open
teams are any amateur teams in the
country, Y.M.C.A. teams are state
champions and runners-up, and vet-
eran teams are men 35 years or older.
Excluding the collegiate teams, 35
'o 40 teams are expected to enter.

Stiff Oponent
In Notre Dame
(Continued from Page 1)
Thomas, Leutritz, Ufer, and Breid-
enbach.
Michigan's Capt. Don Canham also
faces a Drake Relays winner in the
high jump, in the person of the Irish
star, Keith O'Rourke. If Canham canI
reach the heights he attained in
practice this week, however, when
he made a leap of over 6 ft., 5 in.,
it is not unlikely that he may take
a first place in this event.
Notre Dame appears to have all
the power in the individual mile run,
with the Wolverines sh6wing most
strength in the 220 and the low hur-
dles. The biggest question marks of
the meet are the javelin and discus
throws, and the broad jump. Perry
Kimerer, who gained many points
for Michigan last year in the javelin
department, will also make the trip
with the squad and may team with
Johnny Wise against the Irish.
Notre Dame is also favored to take
first place in the shot put with their
brawny sophomore, Jim Delaney, who
copped the Penn Relays title last
week. But Bob Hook, Michigan sen-
ior, has been heaving the iron ball
over 49 feet consistently in practice
and may prove a surprise winner here.
With Michigan's Charlie Decker
favored in the pole vault and Notre
Dame holding a slight edge in the
two-mile run and the high hurdles,
the outcome of the meet, from all
events then, seems likely to hinge on
that mile relay. And with the Wol-
verines determined to make up for,
the Drake Relays event last week,
they may take a close decision here
which will tip the scales enough in
their favor to give them a stil closerj
decision in the meet.1

(Continued from Page 1)
The lone exception is Capt. Bob
Schwarz, a senior, who will play in
the number one singles match against
Jim Tobin, the Wolverine leader.
Illinois' record of two victories and
two defeats is not overly impressive,
but they are reputed to be improving
steadily and may give the Michigans
a tougher battle than anyone ex-
pects. In Big Ten competition, the
Illini hlave beaten Indiana and fallen
before Purdue.
Coach Leroy Weir of the Wolverines
plans to use the same singles lineup
that he has put on the courts for
every match since his lads returned
from their spying vacation Southern
trip. After Tobin, Lawton Hammett
will hold down the number two spot
against Frank Saikley and Jim Port-
er will play the third singles match,
meeting Illinois' Don Miller.
Playing number four for Michigan
will be the colorful Wayne Stille. He
will match strokes with the visitors'
Norman Ediden. In the fifth singles
encounter, Wolverine Tom Gamon
will face Sam Young, Illinois 18-year-
old sophomore sensation. Weir will
round out his lineup with Alden
Johnson in the six spot, meeting Art
Jones of Illinois.
Michigan's phenomenal doubles
team of Tobin and Hammett, which'
seems to have the inside track for
the Conference championship, will
tangle with Schwarz and Saikley, the
visitors' top duo.
As in previous matches, Stille and
Porter will take over the second
doubles assignment against Miller
and Young of Illinois and the Wol-
verines' third combination will be
composed of Gamon and Howard Ba-
con. This pair will play against :Edi-
'den and Jones.

Golfers Play Host To Indiana'

By LYONS hOWLAND
Michigan's marauding golfers will
seek their fifth win of the year today
when they meet the visiting linksmen
from Indiana University on Univer-
sity Golf Course.
Scheduled activities for the match
will take the whole day, the teams
playing off the doubles matches in
the morning starting at 8 a.m. with
time out at noon for lunch, and the
singles combination going into action
in the afternoon at 12:45 p.m.
Courtright Has Strong Squad
Coach Courtright has in readiness
a strong foursome and large reserve
squad to meet whatever the Hoosiers
have to offer. Captain Fred Dannen-
felser and sophomore Ben Smith will
lead the Wolverines into battle with
Johnny Barr and Bob Fife in the
third and fourth positions. John Leidy
and Dave Osler, both of whom have
been rather inactive the early part
of the season, are expected to play
for the Wolverines. Reserves will play
along with the varsity, the number
depending on the size of the Hoosier
squad which Coach Soutar is bring-
ing from Bloomington. Ken Calder,
Wayne Wolfe, Chandler Simonds,
Buel Morely, Dave Ladd, and Cliff
James will be on hand for reserve
duty.
Indiana will have a team composed
,mainly of veterans, five letterwin-
ners and nine numeral men bolstering
Soutar's team. Bill Borton, Wilbur
Van Horn, Harold Schmidt, Franl;
Penning, and Steve Rose will bear the
main Hoosier burden with Bob Sill,
Pete Corallo, Julius Brownstein, and
Bob Boden in reserve roles.
Hoosiers Beaten Last Year #
The Hoosiers suffered defeat at
Michigan's hands last year by a 13
to 11 score. This year to date the
two teams have both garnished fav-
orable records, the Wolverines taking
four out of five dual meets, and In-
diana on the winning side of things
with a 9% to 51 trouncing of North-
western's powerful Wildcats.}
Zivic Beats Marteliano
NEW YORK, May 2.-(P---In she
closest thing a decision could be to
a knockout, welterweight champion
Fritzie Zivic of Pittsburgh outpoint-
ed and outslugged Tony Marteliano of
New York in 10 rounds tonight, leav-
ing the East Side boy draped over
the ropes as the bell ended the final
round. Both men weighed 1491
pounds, over the class limit.

Horses Await
Opening Gun
In Derby Race
By DON WIRTCHAFTER
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 2. -The
magic strains of "My Old Kentucky
Home" will sweep across the beauti-
ful Churchill Downs for the 67th
time tomorrow when 11 of the na-
tion's finest thoroughbreds parade to
the post for the Kentucky Derby-
picturesque master of all racing clas-
sics.
From the looks of things, a slightly-
built chestnut colt named Our Boots
will be the people's choice by post
time. The son of Bull Dog doesn't
seem to care what sort of stuff they
make him run on. He prances over
dry turf, slides happily through the
mud and sends cards home every
Mother's Day. Despite the fact that
all the children of Bull Dog tend to
tire easily, Our Boots will go to the
post at 8-5 odds.
Porter's Cap Second Choice
Next in line in the betters' books
is Charles S. Howard's Porter's Cap,
a wild Western product with a classy
two-year old record. The Cap is an-
other of those all-weather performers
and with crafty Leon Haas on his
broad back should reward his fol-
lowers around 2-1.
Chalked up third in the book-
makers' charts is Whirlaway, by far
the wierdest performer of them all.
Two bad races, a sore leg and a gen-
eral dislike for turns failed to check
the Blue Grass-bred Calumet colt
from becoming the mystery horse of
the race. I
Dispose May Stage Comeback
There are still plenty around here
who believe that Dispose can return
to the'form he showed in capturing
the Flamingo Stakes in Florida earli-
er this year. Owned by Robert Kle-
berg, Jr., he will probably move into
the front soon after they leave the
barrier tomorrow, but whether he can
hold up under the final drives of
the rest is another tale yet to be
I unfolded.
Fred Byer's Robert Morris at 8-1
and Market Wise, winner of the
woods Memorial a week ago, at 12-1,
are other contenders who are receiv-
ing their share of attention tonight.
Also in the starting picture are Rocky
Palladino's Little Beans, Blue Pair,
Staretor, Valdina Paul, and Cleave-
land Putnam's Swain, who lilies the
mud, the whole mud and nothing but
the mud.
