for the Wolverines because Indiana
has displayed some heavy hitting and
effective pitching in gaining six con-
ference wins.
The visitors have an old grudge to
settle with Michigan as the result
of last year's series. Indiana won
the first game, 4-3, and were well on
'their way to take the second with
the score 4-3 in their favor going
into the ninth. The Wolverines,
however, pushed two runs across the
plate in the last inning to win, 5-4.
Capt. Bill Steppon, who has been
on the injured list for the last sev-
eral weeks, was released from the
Health Service today and will be in
uniform. It is exremely doubtful
that he will participate in the game.
Ray Fisher's other casualty, Whitey
Holman, is feeling much better to-
day. The fleet-footed left fielder
has had a bruised shoulder for the
last 10 days and consequently has
been unable to play a full game. Ray
thinks that Whitey will be able to go
the route today.

Golfers Leave
To Meet Illini
Linksinen Invade Big Ten
Champions Tomorrow
Boasting one of the best late-sea-
son records in the Big Ten with four
straight conference wins to their
credit, Michigan's powerful golfers
will take on the year's biggest ob-
stacle to their title hopes when they
meet Illinois' Western Conference
champions at Champaign tomorrow.
Leaving Ann Arbor town via auto-
mobile at 6 a.m. today, Coach Ray
Courtright is taking with him the
largest team that has traveled for
Michigan this year, the Wolverine
coach choosing eight men for a trav-
eling squad. Capt. Fred Dannenfel-
ser, Ben Smith, Dave Osler, Johnnies
Barr and Leidy, Bob Fife, Ken Cal-
der and Breard Fishburn will make
the 350-mile trip.
Up against a team of no mean
capabilities, the Wolverines are go-
ing to have to play in top form in
order to outdo the Conference
Champs. The fighting Illini have
won all their dual meets so far this
season, including an impressive 151
to 11%/2 defeat of Iowa's Hawkeyes
on the latter's course.
In accordance with his policy of
allowing a maximum number of play-1
ers to sock the pellet for Michigan,<
Coach Courtright has picked two new1
men to take the trip in the persons
of Kenry Calder and Breard Fish-t
Calder, a senior, has already repre-
sented Michigan this year, winning

on two crucial sports fronts today,
and although approximately 700 miles
separates the scenes of action, the
stake at each is equally vital to Wol-
verine title-winning hopes.
Coach Ray Fisher's high-riding
baseball team will occupy the home
spotlight this afternoon and tomorrow
with a two-day series against a strong
Hoosier nine. Perched on top of the
Conference baseball powder-keg, the
Wolverine nine is now heading into
the pennant stretch with only six
Big Ten games remaining. The In-
diana series, last of the home Confer-
ence tilts, will serve as a definite
criterion of just how well the Wol-
verines stack up. If they sweep the
series, they will be the odds-on choice
to cop the crown.

Minnesota Coach Ken Doherty
and 27 grimly determined track-
men are primed to throw all their
vengeful cinder might at Indiana
in an effort to overcome the same
Hoosier individual brilliance which
unseated them from the Conference
Indoor title last March.
In what is expected to turn into one
of the fiercest dogfights in Big Ten
history Indiana is rated an ever so
slight favorite over the well-balanced
Wolverines. Prof. Phillip Diamond has
already predicted a victory on paper
for the Hoosiers by a half-point, al-
though he modified the prognostica-
tion with the assertion that he ex-
pected Wolverine spirit to overcome
the narrow margin. Bill Reed, of the
Western Conference Service Bureau,
foresees a deadlock between the two
powerhouses at 49 points. Al Holden,
famous Chicago dopester, predicts a
48-48 tie. '
On the basis of the amazingly
rapid improvement shown by the en-
tire Wolverine squad the last few
weeks plus the fact that every last
spikeman is keyed for this meet as
we have never seen them before, we
are slightly more optimistic. We have
only one reservation to make. Our
entire prediction is based on good, hot
weather at Minneapolis.
By tomorrow night Michigan will
have won its fifth consecutive out-
door title with 54 points. Indiana
will be second with a total of 49,
followed by Ohio State with 33.
The complete selections are:
100-yard dash-First, Piker, NW;
second, Franck,'Minn.; third, Thom-
as, Mich.; fourth, Hammond, OSU;
fifth, Piel, Mich.
220-yard dash-First, Piker, NW;
second, Piel, Mich.; third, Franck,
Minn.; fourth, Hammond, OSU; fifth,
Thomas, Mich.
440-yard dash-First, Cochran,
1'/2 points in his match against Pur-
due's Knipp. Fishburn will see his
first varsity action when he meets
the Illini. Both boys have good
swings, and are expected to boost
Michigan's team score if they perform
at Champaign as well as they have in
practice on University Golf Course.
After meeting the Illini, Coach
Courtright will head toward Evans-
ton where the Wolverines will meet
a strong Northwestern aggregation
to wind up the two-meet trip.

Varsity Seeks
Fifth Straight
Outdoor Title
Indiana Given Slight Edge ;
Half Mile Matches Kane
And Breidenbach Today
(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan's two Al's, Piel and Thom-
as, will also be running today and
both of them should qualify.
Indiana will probably gain its first
top-place qualifier in the 440, with
speedy Roy Cochran carrying the
colors. Michigan will have two run-
ners in this event who have run the
distance under 48 seconds, Bob Ufer
and Jack Leutritz, and both of these
speedsters should qualify next to
880 Should Thrill
The most spectacular finish in the
trial runs and in the finals will prob-
ably occur in the 880. The Wolverines
will pit the best half-miler in their
history, Warren Breidenbach, against
the Hoosiers' sensational middle-dis-
tance runner, Campbell Kane.
Breidenbach s'et a new Michigan
varsity record of 1:52.4 seconds in the
880 racing against the Buckeyes last
week, but Kane defeated the Wolver-
ine champ in the Big Ten indoor meet.
Anything can happen in this event.
In the high and low hurdle events,
Bob Wright of Ohio State is conceded
first place by most of the track ex-
perts. However, Cochran will probably
take a place for Indiana in the lows
and Jeff Hill might qualify for the
.Wolverines. Michigan has two very
likely place-winners in the highs,
in the persons of Frank McCarthy
and Neil McIntyre.
r Hook Is Threat
With Archie Harris an almost cer-
tain first-place winner in the discus
and shot-put, the Hoosiers rate the
edge in the field events. But Bob
Hook, big weight star on the Wol-
verine squad, put the shot over 49 ft.,
9 in. last week and will offer a ser-
ious threat to the aspirations of Har-
ris and Wisconsin's George Paskvan.
Hook and Tommy Lawton are almost
sure to place in the discus.
Michigan will have an excellent
chance of qualifying Frank McCarthy
in the broad jump, and both Johnny
Wise and Perry Kimerer should enter
tomorrow's javelin finals. High jump-
ers Don Canham, Wes Allen and the
mile relay team are all sure of gain-
ing points.

and fourth singles respectively. IA
the fifth and sixth positions, respec-
tively, were Alden Johnson and Roy
In doubles, Hammett and Stille took
over the number one spot, Schafland-
er and Bradley 'number two, and
Gamon and Johnson the last doubles
The best and hardest fought match
of the day was between the doubles
combinations of Gene Russell and
John Vander Meiden, of Western
State and Hammett and Stille. Play-
ing for the first time together, the
Michigan duo put up a terrific battle
before they finally succumbed to the
attack of the Bronco first doubles
team, 6-4, 10-8.
Russell, Bronco number one man,
started Western State on to victory
by whipping Hammett in straight
sets, 6-2, 6-4, and in the second
singles match, Vander Meiden hand-
ed Schaflander the worst shellacking
of the day, 6-0, 6-0.
Don Crook was extended to the
limit before he finally beat Stille,
8-6, 6-3. It was a closer match all
the way with the Bronco player's
steadiness being the margin of vic-
Michigan picked up three points as
Gamon beat Roland Fend, 6-1, 6-4,
Johnson bested Dick Spencer, 6-2,
6-4, and Bradley eked out a 6-3, 6-4,
victory over Frank Defoe.
In the second doubles match, Crook
and Fend found worthy opponents in
Schaflander and Bradley, but took
advantage of the fact that the Mich-
igan duo had never played together
before to win, 7-5, 6-2. In the final
doubles match, Gamon and Johnson
soundly trounced the Brdnco combin-
ation of Spencer and Defoe, 6-2, 6-1.
Annual Intramural Golf
Tournament Tomorrow
Intramural links activities for the
year will come to a climax Saturday
when some 350 golfers from general

all-day tournament on University
Golf Course.
A gold medal will be awarded for
the longest drive off the 18th tee,

Davenport Cops Championship


A determined team from Daven-
port, Ia., had to overcome the luck
of the draw and defeat the team from
Sommerville, Mass., in two matches
before they were finally able to win
the National Volleyball Champion-
ship in the veterans division last
night on the Sports Building's
In the first round matches, Som-
merville defeated Davenport in
straight games. However, both teams
were still in the tournament as it
takes two losses to eliminate a team,
and from that point to the finals
neither team lost a match.
The Sommerville YMCA team
could have secured the winner's tro-
phy had they been able to beat Daven-
port again in the first match of the
finals, but Davenport stayed hot,
while the New Englanders seemed to
lose their form, for Davenport took
the first match, 15-8, 15-8.
An intermission at this point dur-

ing which George Williams College
of Chicago played an exhibition game
against a picked team failed to
dampen Davenport's spirit, for they
kept their stride and defeated Som-
'merville again, 15-2, 15-13.
Starting tomorrow morning and
continuing throughout the day, the
top flight teams of the nation will
play on the courts at the Sports
Building, fighting to take home the
trophy that is symbolic of national,
volleyball supremacy.
Though every team in the open has
proven itself in the competition of
regional playoffs, four- teams seem
to stand out in the field of 15. The
North Avenue Y team of Chicago is
generally seeded first, for they have
gone through the season undefeated.
The Embarcadero YMCA of San
Francisco, Hughes Tool of Houston,
Texas, and the Houston Y team that
has won the championship six of the
last eight years will all be obstacles
in their oath.
