By ART HILL
Preakness Winner...
DOWN IN THE HEART of Mary
land, they're getting ready fo
another running of the Preakness, on
of the most tradition-steeped tur
classics in American racing. Resi
dents of the Old Line state will for
get the war and the heat this Satur
day and flock out to historic ol
Pimlico for their annual look at th
race which antedates even the Derb
by a good many years.
As usual, the wise boys are try-
ing to get an inside line on just
where the smart money is going
-'and they're finding that a goodly
portion of it has been planked
right on the nose of a colt named
Whirlaway who romped home in
front by some eight lengths in the
big doings up at Churchill Downs
last Saturday.
The Whirl is being pointed fora
triple victory, the Derby, the Preak
ness and the Belmont Stakes, by hi
owner, Warren Wright, and there ar
plenty of rail-birds who think he can
do it.
Not so this department, however
It's only been done three times an
we like to think that the horses tha
did it, Sir Barton, Gallant Pox an
Omaha, were all just a little bit great
er than Wright's little chestnut.
And there are a lot of other fac-
tors to consider too. One of the
most important is the condition of
the track. The strip at Churchill
Downs was as hard as cement last
Saturday while the one at Pimlico
will be as soft as a fresh-plowed
field.
THERE'S A HORSE named Ou
Bootsentered in the Preakness
And there are several things whic
every good racing man should kno
about this particular horse. He fin
ished eighth in the Derby. He i
trained by Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons
generally regarded as the greates
trainer of three-year-olds in the land
And lastly, he has tender feet.
Our Boots never finished out o:
the money in his career before las
Saturday. Previous to the Derby, h
had clashed with Whirlaway eigh
times and come up to the finish lin
ahead of him six times. We like him
to do it again this weekend.
The son of Bulldog and Maid of
Arches has plenty of early foot,
something that Whirlaway lacks,
and this should pay off over the
Preakness course which is a six-
teenth of a mile shorter than the
Derby. What's more, the turns at
Pimlico are sharper than the ones
at the Downs and this spells dis-
aster for the Whirl who has a nasty
habit of running wide on the curves.
Everything points to a victory fo
Royce Martin's colt Saturday. Tende
feet, soft track. Fast starter, shorte
course. Besides the Boot has shown
that he likes the Pimlico strip in
past appearances there.
We recommend Our Boots but i
you go for long shots, and who doesn't
you might put a couple of green one
on a nag named Curious Coin. The
Coldstream Farm's prize three-year-
old was out of the Derby but if he'
ready for the Pimlico classic, he may
surprise everyone. He's an outside
and can't be picked for the top spoi

but if he should win, his backers
ought to reap a handsome reward.

Football Fans
Hope Brothers
Repeat History
By BUD HENDEL
Can history repeat itself? Michi-
gan football fans hope that it can,
because the brothers of two former
Wolverine All Americans, Francis
"Whitey" Wistert and Ted Petoskey,
members of the famous teams that l
- swept to three consecutive Big Ten
r titles in 1931, '32, and '33, are listedt
e on the Maize and Blue, roster. They
f are Al Wistert, left tackle, and Jack
Petoskey, left end.E
Played Side By Side
But lets go back. "Whitey" and
Ted played side by side on the Mich-E
d igan forward wall during those three
e glorious grid years - Wistert at leftt
y tackle and Petoskey at left end. {
Bth Fritz Crisler, head football
coach, and Wally Weber, freshmanE
mentor, have a word of praise for that
highly rated duo.f
Wally claims that Michigan wonE
many of their games in those victory
filled years solely because Wistert and
Petoskey bore the brunt of the Maize
and Blue defense.1
And Crisler recalls the time heE
brought one of his Princeton elevensE
to Ann Arbor to battle the Kipkes
a coached Wolverines in 1932. He saysI
- that during the entire game his Tigert
s band didn't make an inch through
e "Whitey" and Ted.9
Brothers Taking Over
Today Al Wistert and Jack Pe-E
toskey are taking up where their big1
d brothers left off. Al covered himselft
t with glory last year as the regular
d Michigan left tackle. Ted, a fresh-
- man, is working out at the left endl
slot, and is regarded as a promising
prospect.
If history repeats, the Wistert-Pe-t
toskey combination will once more
protect the left side of the Maize
and Blue line. And who knows? - 1
maybe, like their brothers, they'll
bring a couple of Conference cham-
pionships to Ann Arbor'.

socked a hard double over the third
base bag that came so close to being
a foul that it made the chalk dust
fly. Bill Cartmill then pushed a single
into center and Ruehle came home
easily from second, to make the score
one all.
Gould decided that he wanted some
runs in the sixth and promptly led
off with a single over second. Sofiak
laid down a sacrifice bunt along the
third base line sending the speedy
Gould to third. The Hilltopper first
sacker thought he could cut Gould
downat third but in an attempt to
do this he heaved the ball about 10
feet over his teammate's head. Mase
came home on the play and Michi-
gan went ahead 2-1.
Whitey Holman got another chance
at the ball when the catcher dropped
his foul third strike, and promptly
dropped a double in right field. Whit-,
ey came home when Wayne Christen-
son, who is substituting for Bill Step-
pon, cracked a double into deep cen-
ter field. This evidently rattled Fry,
who then walked Dick Wakefield on
four pitches. The crowd let out. a
groan when second baseman Lopresto
dropped a sure double play ball hit
by Bud Chamberlain to allow Chris-
tenson to come home for the Wolver-
ines' third tally of the inning.
Dick Wakefield, the sophomore
beanpole, continued to place himself
in the extra base hit column by sock-
ing the longest ball of the game over
the centerfielder's head for a home
run. Christenson, who was on third
at the time, just loped home while
Dick really had to turn in some fast
legging to get all the way around.
Fisher put in Cliff Wise in the
eighth inning to limber the big fel-
low up for the Illinois series this
weekend.

(Continued from Page 1)
opposed by Gene Richards, Wildcat
leader. Atlhough he does not pos-
sess a flashy game, Richards plays
steadily, usually causing his oppon-
ents to make numerous mistakes
which lead to their downfall.
Beryl Shapiro of Northwestern will
battle Jim Porter in the number
three spot. Porter has been playing
consistent ball all year long as has
Shapiro. Both are cool, resourceful
players, and should make the match
an interesting one.
In the fourth singles spot, Wayne
Stille will match strokes with Harrie
Hall, fourth and last Northwestern
letterman. Stille is the most im-
proved member on the Michigan
squad and has shown great prowess
at the net. Hall, on the other hand,
plays coolly and consistently.
Tom Gamon will hold down his
usual five spot and will face Bob
Goodkind, promising Wildcat sopho-
more, and Johnson will meet Jack
Shapiro in the last singles match of
the afternoon.
The best match of the day should
be the battle between the star Michi-
gan doubles team of Tobin and Ham-
mett and the Wildcat duo of Green-
berg and Richards. The Wolverine
pair have yet to lose a match, but
will probably find the going tough
today.
Porter and Stille will again play in
the second doubles spot and will be
opposed by Hall and Goodkind. To
round out the afternoon's festivi-
ties, Gamon and Bacon will face the
Shapiro brothers in the final doubles
match.
Today's match should provide a
tip-off on the final outcome of the
Big Ten tennis campaign.

Spring activities took a short
breather in the Intramural competi-
tion yesterday. In the two softball
games played, Robert Owen edged
out the Yankees, 7-6, and Delta
Theta Phi defeated Phi Rho Sigma,
15-7.
Forfeits were numerous in Resi-
dence Hall horseshoe competition.
Williams, Lloyd, and Winchell all
won by default from Chicago, Greene,
and Adams, respectively. The only
Fraternity match played was won by
Kappa Sigma from Chi Psi, 2-1. In
the Greek letter, tennis competition,
Pi Lambda Phi defeated Theta Chi
3-0.
Tonight at 7:30 in the swimming
pool at the Sports Building the pro-
fessional fraternities will hold their
annual swimming meet. The meet
was won last year by Alpha Chi Sig-
ma. Sixteen teams representing all
the professional fraternities are en-
tered in the meet this year.

By BOB STAHL
From all indications of past meets
this year, no single event of Satur-
day's dual meet between the Wol-
verine track team and the strong
cinder squad of Ohio State can be
selected and singled out as the fea-
ture event of the day. Ferry Field
will see such close competition in
every race event Saturday that any
or all of them can be classed as "fea-
tures."
Wright Star Attraction
The Buckeyes' sensational sopho-
more ace, versatile Bob Wright, will
be the star attraction of the Ohio
State squad, Wright was high point-
getter in the triangular meet be-
tween Ohio State, Indiana and Pur-
due last Saturday, winning easily in
the high and low hurdles and placing
second in the 100 yard dash and
fourth in the discus throw.
The husky Buckeye was not forced
in the high hurdles last week and
turned in a .very slow time. From the
way the Wolverine timber-toppers,
Frank McCarthy and Neil McIntyre,
have been running in practice ses-
sions these last few days, anything
might happen in the high hurdles
come Saturday.
Les Eisenhart, captain of the Ohio
State team, should also show the
e _ _

fans some fancy running. Although
he came in second to the Hoosiers'
Campbell Kane in the mile run last
week, Eisenhart set a new Stadium
record for Ohio State milers of 4:16.5
seconds. Herb Leake and the other
Michigan milers will have to exhibit
plenty of drive Saturday, if they are
to finish ahead of the Buckeye cap-
tain, for Leake, who ran the fastest
Michigan iile against Notre Dame
last week, turned in a time of three
seconds slower than that' of Eisen-
hart.
One Of Nation's Best
With both teams presenting indi-
vidual stars in every event on the
card, the fans on hand will be treat-
ed to one of the best meets in the
nation Saturday and with competi-
tion as keen as it looks to be now,
no one will be able to pick a winner
safely until the final results are
broadcast over the loudspeaker at
Ferry Field sometime on Saturday
afternoon.
