was pressed hard by his teammate,

Jeff Hall and came in only a stride
ahead, with Hoeflinger taking second
and Hall third.
Michigan's 1p-ranking sprinters,
Al Thomas and Al Piel, ran their own
contest in the dashes. Thomas, fac-
ing into a strong quarter-wind, caused
a mild flurry by breaking the tape
ahead of Piel and Buckeye Ralph
Hammgond in the 100 yard dash, turn-
ing in a time of 10 seconds flat. Piel
came back to win the 220, with

the '"Four Horsemen" of the Michi-
gan squad, Jack Leutritz, Bob Ufer,

leg, and Ufer and "Barnard increased
the lead with Thomas finishing at

Merv Preglman Win Aftnual
Chicago Alumni Football Award
Mervin Pregulman, freshman guard
from Lansing, was named yesterday
as the 1941 winner of the University
of Michigan Club of Chicago Award. '
The award was presented to Pregul-
man late yesterday morning in Yost
Field House by Meyer Morton, Mich-
igan alumnus and prominent Big Ten
official, to mark the end of the an-
nual High School Coaches Clinic.
Some 2500 people were on hand to
witness the presentation.
An all-around athlete, Merv was
deserving of the honor betowed upon
him. He won his freshman numerals
here at Michigan in both football
and basketball, and is regarded as an

[ outstanding cage prospect as well as a.
future Wolverine gridiron luminary.
In his high school days Pregulman
compiled an enviable record. Playing
for ,Lansing Central High School, he
was a member of the football team,
basketball squad and track aggrega-
Big Merv graduated from Lansing'
Central in 1940 after winning three
letters in football, three in basket-
ball, and two in track. In 1939 he was
the unanimous choice of the coaches
for the center post on the mythical
All State eleven, as well as receiving,
honorable mention on the All State'
basketball outfit and placing third'
in the shotput in the state Class A
As a freshman last fall Pregulman'
played at his familiar pivot post on
Wally Weber's yearling aggregation,'
but this spring Coach Fritz Crisler
shifted him to a guard spot where
his performance has been outstand-
The well-built freshman, 220
pounds, 6 feet, 2 inches, is nine-
teen years old, a member of Sigma
Alpha Mu fraternity, and enrolled in1
the Lit schol. He plans to enter the1
School of Business Administration.1
Many factors are taken into con-
sideration by the Wolverine coach-r
ing staff before they select the ulti-
mate winner of the Chicago Alumni
Trophy. Attendance, attitude, varsity
potentialities, and improvement dur-#
ing the spring drills all enter into
the selection. Pregulman filled the
bill in all departments.r

Blues In Final
Robinson Leads Victors
As Whites Win Game
In Last Quarter, 14-7
By BUD HENDEL
In a belated last quarter attack,
a fighting White team surged through
a fast-tiring Blue aggregation to win
the annual intrasquad football game,
14 to 7, and bring the spring train-
ing grind to a close before some
5,000 pigskin fans at the Stadium yes-
Led by the 160 pound freshman
triple threat halfback, Don Robinson,
the White outfit saw the 7-0 lead,
which they had amassed in the open-
ing minutes of the tilt, tied up in the
second quarter, and unleashed an
assault in the last three minutes
to capture the contest on a touch-
down by Tom Kuzma.
The'first touchdown came scarcely
a minute after tackle Al Wistert
kicked off for the Whites and recov-
ered George Ceithaml's fumble on the
Blue 28 yard line. After Bob Westfall
made a first down on the 15 in two
plays, Robinson on a fast-breaking
play, tossed a touchdown pass to Walt
Freihofer. Wistert's extra point at-
tempt was good, and the Whites led,
Then the Blue team took command
of the situation. After an exchange
of punts by Johnny Allerdice and
Robinson, the Blues, spearheaded by
fullback Don Boor and halfback Norm
Call, drove deep into White territory
only to have it die when center Bob
Ingalls intercepted Call's pass on the
But the Blues weren't to be denied.
After Robinson punted out of bounds
on the Blue 32, they started their
touchdown drive. Allerdice passed to
Tippy Lockard and then .]ack Pe-
toskey to advance the ball to the
White 30 yard marker.
Call replaced Allerdice in the Blue
backfield, and after the Blues were
awarded the ball on the White 18 due
to pass interference, he carried the1
pigskin to the four yard stripe. Two1
plays later Call scored on a reverse,
spinner from Boor. Bob Kolesar made1
the extra point and the score stood at<
Strong Blue Attack
Until the last three minutes of the
fourth quarter, the Blue aggregationl
dominated the play. Sparked by the
blocking of Ceithaml, George Gibbs,
Merv Pregulman, and Kolesar, the1
backs, Elmer Madar, Allerdice, BoorI
and Call passed and ran time afterI
time far into the White domain, only
to be stopped by the fast charging
And just when it looked as if the
battle would end in a tie, the Whitesr
broke loose with their furious as-
sault. Robinson passed to Paul White
and Don Long to place the ball on the
Blue 32. Then the durable Robinson
and Austin Miller carried it to the 24.
Paul White took it to the 19 and
was injured on the play, being re-
placed by Tom Kuzma.
After Miller advanced to the 16,

a walk to Ruehle and a double by
Cartmill who played left field in
place of the injured Whitey Holman.
The lead was short-lived, however,
since the Illini came back in the third
to score twice on a walk to Brewer,
an error by Sofiak and singles by
Wahl and Milosevich. Davey Nelson,
Wolverine centerfielder, cut off an-
other possible run by throwing Wahl
out at third as he attempted to take
two bases on Milosevich's single.

time they kept it. Christenson singled
after .two were out and then Wake-
field hit his homer into the tennis
courts in dead center field.
After two were out in the fifth,
Sofiak drew a pass. The fourth ball
was a wild pitch and Mike ran all
the way to second, sliding in under
a poor throw by William (Armless
Bill) Brewer. Mike then stole third,
Bessone leaping high to prevent
Brewer's throw from going into left
field, and scored on Wakefield's single
The Wolverines made three more
in the sixth, an inning in which al-
most everything happened. In this
frame, the spectators were treated to
two errors, two walks, a stolen base,
a bunt single by Cartmill and, need
we add, a bad throw by Brewer.
When the dust had cleared, Drish
had moved from the mound to right
field, Brewer was in left where he
wouldn't get so many chaces to handle
the ball, Campbell was pitching, Chet
Ziemba was catching and Michigan
had three more runs.
Yesterday's win brought the Michi-
gan record to five wins and one loss
and kept the Wolverines on top of
the Big Ten.

Janes, Ohio State senior, Tom Gamon
steadied himself and came out on the

was marred by numerous errorson

Michigan's marauding .golfers con-'
tinued their Big Ten winning streak
yesterday as they soundly trounced
an unexpectedly weak Ohio State
squad 20%,2 to 6%/2 on UniversityGolf
Taking their thircr straight confer-
ence triumph of the year, the Wol-
verines won seven out of nine
matches, sunk some 118 par holes, and
got away with 17 birdies to beat the
Buckeyes for the second time this
The match took on an unusual
aspect when two surprising things
happeped. First one was lanky Ben
Smith's second win this season over
Ohio State's prized possession, Big
Ten champion Billy Gilbert. Smith
outplayed the conference champ -by
three strokes when he blazed around
the course in a one-under-par 71
to take medal honors for the day.
The good looking sophomore from
Florida caused uncontrollable thoughts
of a possible conference championship
to rise up in the minds of his spec-
tators as they watched his smooth-
The other unusual occurrence of
the match almost proved disastrous
to the Ohio State squad when John-
ny Steckel keeled out cold at the
turn of the morning's doubles match-
es. The Buckeye number-three man
gamely came back from the doctor
in the afternoon to play out his part
in the singles matches, losing to
Johnny Barr, 2 to 1.
Wolverine gems for the day were
many. Temperamental flash Dave Os-
ler's sparkling 74 in the singles proved
his value to any championship team.
'Curly Locks' Bob Fife really, got his
putter clicking for the first time
this season and blazed out a 75 for
Michigan's two Johnnies, Barr and
Leidy, were both in an easy-swinging
mood and had no trouble taking their
doubles game with a 76 and 77 re-
Captain Fred Dannenfelser had an
off-day with the putter and did not
equal his early-season feat of out-
playing Billy Gilbert. The likeable
Wolverine leader garnered a 77 and
82 for his day's efforts.
Cliff James, playing actively in his
first match this season went out and
took 21/2 points from his opponent,
and won his first letter emblem.
Singles: Smith (M) defeated Gil-
bert (O), 3-0; Dannenfelser (M) de-
