break the tape ahead of Michigan's
Vrank McCarthy. Neil McIntyre,
Michigan's other high hurdler, has
recovered from a leg injury he re-
ceived earlier in the year and should
give Ohio State's George Hoeflinger
a battle for third place.
Ralph Hammond, the Buckeye
sprint star, has twice finished ahead
of the Wolverine ace, Al Piel, in in-
door competition this year, but Piel
has been running the century con-
sistently under 10 seconds during the
past few weeks and he turned in a
very fast 9.8 seconds against Notre
Dame last Saturday. It is not at all
unlikely, then, that he might upset
the pre-meet dope sheets and finish
ahead of Hammond in both the 100
and the 220.
Out For Record
Ohio State will offer Wolverine
Capt. Don Canham little opposition
in the high jump but Canham has
more than a mere victory here to
strive for. The Michigan senior, in
his last home competition, will be
out to set' a new field record of 6
ft. 6 in., and if he is favored by the
gods in powe with a warm sun, it
is not at all unlikely that he will
leave a new mark for his successors
toshoot at.
Michigan has most of the power
in the quarter-mile and in the 8801
and will probably have winners in
both events. Wolverines Bob Ufer
and. Jack Leutritz are both favored
over Ohio State's Bob Porter in the
440, and it will be just a question
of which of them takes first and
which takes second in the race.
Half-Mile Duel
Warren Breienbach, the fastest
middle-distance man on the Michi-
gan squad, has been moved from the
quarter-mile race into the 880 by
Wolverine Coach Ken Doherty, and
although he will be pressed very hard
by Buckeye Capt. Les Eisenhart, it
is almost a certainty that, he will
finish first. Eisenhart, however, will
probably come back to win the mile
run and gain back five points for the
Buckeyes.
Michigan's Charlie Decker and
Ohio's Schmidt are rated approxim-
ately even in the pole vault and it is
a toss-up as to which will take first
place, some of the .experts predict-
ing the event will resutlt in a tie.
Bob Segula, the powerful Wolverine
sophomore, will offer Decker and
Schmidt plenty of competition also,
and may gain one of the top spots.
Hook Is Favored
Bob Hook, the husky blond weight-
man on the Michigan squad, who
has been putting the shot consistent-
ly over 49 ft., is favored over any
Ohio competition in this event, and
Wolverine Johnny Wise should have
little trouble in taking the javelin
throw.
In the relay Bob Ufer, Jack Leu-
tritz, Bobby Barnard, and Al Thom-
as will be pressed to the limit by
the Ohioans' speedy baton-passing
team. But even if the Buckeyes were
to gain a first place in the mile re-
lay, it is very likely that the Michi-
gan team will have built up a suffi-
cient margin of victory at this point.
And so when the final results are
announced over the loudspeakers at
Ferry Field, the Wolverines will prob-
ably be named the victors by a very
few points.

By HAL WILSON
Daily Sports Editor
F THE WEATHER MAN can see his way clear to throw Ann Arbor a little
sun and some shirt-sleeve temperature today, Wolverine fans will be
treated to one of the most crowded and attractive day-long athletic pro-
grams in Michigan spring sports history.
From the time when Head Coach Fritz Crisler leads off this morning's
football clinic discussion before 2,500 high school lads and mentors until
the finall cleat of spring grid practice is removed from the Stadium turf
sometime around dusk, the athletic menu offers a sparkling array of inter-
collegiate attractions. Jammed in between the opening and closing eventsf
are golf and tennis matches with Ohio ;State, a crucial baseball game with
Illinois, an exhibition of the passing and punting wizardry that helped boost
Tom Harmon to stardom, and a big top-notch dual track clash between
Michigan's defending outdoor Big Ten champions and Ohio State's threat-

Golfers To Meet
Invading Team
Of Ohio State
Previous Encounter Won
By Michigan As Ohioans
Seek Revenge Of Loss
By LYONS HOWLAND
Michigan's varsity golfers will be
out for their sixth win of the year
today when they tee off against Ohio
State's invading forces on the ex-
pansive University Golf Course.
The boys from Ohio are really out
for a win today. After keying up for
a Michigan defeat all during spring
practice, the veteran-bolstered Buck-
eye squad was beaten by Coach
Courtright's green team by a 14 to 10
score on the spring trip. The Michi-
gan win was particularly notable be-
cause Captain Fred Dannenfelser and
sophomore/Ben Smith both outplayed
Ohio State's Big Ten champion, Billy
Gilbert.

'Blues' To Clash With "Whites';
Visitors Present StrongLineup

(Continued from Page 1)

White aggregation has not yet been
selected.
At the ends for the Blues will be
Jack Petoskey and Phil Sharpe. Both
have shown promise of developing
into Big Ten calibre flankmen, and
will be dangerous to the White of-i
fense.
Leo Cunningham and Chuck Gibbs
will handle the tackle duties for.the
Munn-coached aggregation. Cunning-
ham, a junior, is experienced in var-
sity competition, while Gibbs is a
comparative newcomer to the Wolver-
ine scene.
Pregulman At Guard
Big Merv Pregulman will team with
the Maize and Blue star guard, Bob
Kolesar, at that post. Pregulman, a
freshman, was shifted from center
during the spring training session and

ening Buckeyes.
IN ADDITION to the intense com-
petitive action the day's slate
should bring forth, Michigan's
chances to sweep all four Big Ten
spring sports titles will be much
more clearly outlined by nightfall.
No University in/the history of the
Western Conference has ever ac-
complished this feat. Some experts

On the track front the situation
is a bit different. Today's test with
the power-laden Bucks from Col-
umbus will be a severe one, but it
nevertheless carries more import-
ance as a tuneup for next week's
Conference fight than as a dual

INDIVIDUAL DUELS will be the order of the day on the cinderpaths with{
the Buckeye Bullet, sophomore Bob Wright, appearing in and favored
to take both hurdle events. An outstanding race is expected to develop
when Ohio's Capt. Les Eisenhart and Michigan's senior veteran, Warren
Breidenbach tangle over the half mile route. Other highlights are Wol-
verine Al Piel and Buck Ralph Hammond in the dashes, Michigan Capt.
Don Canham and Ohio's Andy Jones in the high jump, and the windup
meeting of both mile relay teams.
Line Coach Clarence Munn and Backfield Coach Earl Martineau, oppos-
ing mentors in the "blue" versus "white" intra-squad tilt, are both sched-;
uled to give demonstrations at the coaching clinic. Harmon will conclude
the clinic with his demonstration of passing and punting techniques.
Thursday's win over Northwestern's tennis team gives Michigan's
netmen a close nod over Ohio State, but it will be close. The same holds
true in the golf match. Coach Ray Courtright's high-riding linksmen
snatched a victory from the same Buckeyes while completing their spring
trip three weeks ago, and will thus rank as slight favorites.

swinging bunch.
Playing in the first and second po-
sitions for Michigan will be Captainj
Dannenfelser and Ben Smith. These
two boys have put up stiff oppo-
sition all year, and will make plenty
of trouble for the Buckeyes.
In third and fourth Wolverine po-
sitions are Johnny Barr and Bob
Fife, with Dave Osler and Johnny
Leidy finishing up the list of varsity
doubles teams. In the singles matches
Courtright expects to use several re-
serve players, the number depending
on the size of the traveling squad
which Ohio is bringing.
The match will start this morning
at 8:15 a.m. at which time the doubles
matches will take place. The teams
will then adjourn for lunch to meet

back at the course at 1 p.m.
off the singles matches.

line.
Elmer Madar and Johnny Allerdice
will start at the Blue halfback slots,
but Munn has a bevy of other fleet-
footed backs who are sure to see
action. Norm Call, Tippy- Lockhard,
and Ray Sowers head this list.
At quarterback Munn will start
the ever dependable Ceithaml, while
Don Boor, freshman fullback who has
shown plenty of ability, will handle
the line-bucking chores.
Yearling Ends
Over on the White team two year-
lings, Don Long and Walt Freihofer
will line up at the end posts. Both
of these men are excellent pass re-
ceivers and rate favorably with the
Blue duo of Petoskey and Sharpe.
The White will have a big edge at
the tackles, with two veterans, Al
Wistert and Bob Flora, scheduled to
start. Wistert is one of the best tackles
in the Big Ten and is sure to reap lots
of anguish on the fast-stepping Blue
backs.
Martineau has elected Julius
Franks and George Hildebrandt for
the guard jobs. Franks, a freshman,
has been one of the spring training
standouts, while Hildebrandt, a
sophomgore, is vastly improved.
At the pivot post for the White
outfit will be fiery Bob Ingalls, reg-
ular varsity center. Ingalls is rated
by many as the best center in the
conference, and his great defensive
ability will be tough on the Blue of-
fense.
Dawley At Guaid
Fred Dawley will handle the signal-
calling chores for the Whites, with
Jim Grissen in reserve. Martineau will
have Paul White and Don Robinson
at the halves, two yearlings who can
run and block with the best of them.
Backing these men up are halfbacks
Tom Kuzma and Bob Morrison,
another speepy combination. Bob
Westfall, Michigan captain, will be
at his usual fullback post, and gives
promise of ripping long gains through
the B ue line.
Ro nson, Morrison and Westfall
will do the passing and kicking for
the Whites, while Allerdice, Call and
Boor will tend to those departments
for the Blue aggregation.
THE LINEUPS

By DICK SIMON
Michigan's tennis team will be
shooting for its fifth straight Con-
ference victory when it takes on Ohio
State's strong undefeated net squad
at 10:30 a.m. today on the Palmer
Field courts.
The Buckeyes have won seven
straight matches this season, North-
western falling to the tune of 5-4
yesterday on the Palmer Field courts.,
Ohio State might have made it 6-3
had their number three man, Jerry
Rosenthal, not been suffering, with
a bad leg. As it was Rosenthal and
his partner had to default their
doubles match.
Coach Leroy Weirl intends to use
the same team that defeated North-
western last Thursday. Capt. Jim To-
bin will hold down the number oneII
spot and will face Dick McFarland.
McFarland put up a good fight yes-
terday before he was beaten by Sey-
mour Greenberg of Northwestern and
should make the going tough for the
Wolverine leader.,
Lewis Vs. Hammett
The Buckeye's'leader, John Lewis,
lost a heartbreaker yesterday to Gene
Richards,dWildcat captain, and will
be out today to defeat Lawton Ham-
mett in the second singles match.
From the looks of things Jim Porter
will be in for another hard struggle,
when he faces Rosenthal, diminutive
Ohio Sitate seni6r, in the number
three spot. The stocky Buckeye had
a bad leg in his match with North-
western's Harrie Hall yesterday, but
managed to eke out a three set vic-
tory. Porter also won a three setI
triumnph over Hall on Thursday.
In the fourth singles battle, Michi-
gan's Wayne Stille will face Vic Fili-
mon, who plays a consistent game.
Tom Gamon, Wolverine five man, will
match strokes with John Janes while
Alden Johnson will battle Dick Cole,
the only sophomore on the Ohio
State team in the last singles match.
First Doubles Match
Michigan's first doubles team of
Tobin and Hammett will be out to
show McFarland and Filimanothat
their defeat at the hands of Green-
berg and Richards will not be re-
peated. The Buckeye duo lost a three
set match to the Wildcat pair yester-
day.
Porter and Stille will again team
to formthe second doubles duo which
will battle with Lewis and Rosen-
thal.
The last match of the morning will
be the one between the combination
of Howie Bacon and Gamon and
Janes and Cole.

than did in the earlier frames. He had
no difficulty'in getting the first two
strikes by the batters but the next
pitch would usually put him in trouble.
The Illini scored once in the fifth
when Paul Milosevich hammered a
triple , to deep left field and cane
home when Mike Sofiak let the throw
from the outfield get by him. The vis-
itors picked up another tally in the
sixth and Grant crossed the plate
with the winning run in the seventh,
inning when Liz Astroth singled to
left.
Harms Cuts Hand

Ray Fisher received two bad scares
during the ball game, one When John
Drish, Illini right fielder foul ticked
a ball off George. Harms' finger. A
painful cut resulted but the plucky
Wolverine backstop refused to retire
from the game and stayed in until
the ninth when he was lifted for
a pinch batter.
The second scare was when Nelson's
collided with Holman in centerfield
going after a ground ball. It was
thought for a moment that Whitey
had a broken collar bone but fur-
ther examination revealed that it
was only a bruise.
It was nip and tuck all the way,
with,. Michigan giving the local fans
thrills up to the very end. In the
ninth after two were out, with all the
stands on their feet ready to go home,
Wayne Christenson got to first when
Boyd Bartley, Illini shortstop, threw
an easy ground ball over the first
baseman's head.
Muir Replaces Harms
It was George Harms' turn to bat
but the cut on his hand kept him from
taking' a free swing at the plate so
Fisher lifted him for Neil Muir-who
worked Grant for a pass. The stands
were clamoring for Cliff Wise to win
his own ball game but theibest the
game sophomore could do was to
ground to the pitcher, ending the ball
game.
Capt. Bill Steppon was in the stands
watching his teammates go down to
defeat. Bill is walking around on
crutches and in all probability won't
see action for a week or so.
This loss does not drop Michigan
from her first place position in Big
Ten standings, but unless the Wol-
verines win today's game their
chances for the championship will be
considerably lessened.
