Subjected to eight consecutive
years of domination by the Michigan
track powerhouse, the Butler Relays
title will be put on the auction block
tonight at Indianapolis with some of
the mightiest thinclad aggregations
in the country making their bids for
the crown.
These track powers in the past dis-
covered that trying to break the
Wolverines' grip on the title was like
trying to break the death grip of a
boa constrictor on its victim. But
this year, with Ohio State and Notre
Dame favored over the Michigan cin-
dermen, the Wolverines' bid for the
crown may go unheeded.
McCarthy Stays Home
Without the services of its most
versatile husky, Frank McCarthy, the
Michigan crew will definitely not be
at full strength tonight for the de-
fense of its laurels. McCarthy, who
majors in the high hurdles, high
jump and broad jump, remained at
home yesterday because of his in-
jured hip, retaining with him in Ann
Arbor five or six very probable Wol-
verine points.
Despite the fact that the Buckeyes
captured the Big Ten title last week
end at Chicago, it is the Notre Dame
squad that rates the edge over the
rest of the field in the annual mid-c
western track carnival tonight. List-x
ing on their roster such stars as
shot-put artist Jim Delaney, high
jumper Keith O'Rourke, and dis-
tancerunner Ollie Hunter, the Irish
will be seeking revenge for the dual
meet set-back the Wolverines handed
them earlier in the season and, fromt
all indications, it will take all the

ed in competition this year. Com-
posed of Buel Morley, George Pet-
tersen, Al Thomas and Bob Ufer,
this baton-passing quartet has al-
ready defeated the Notre Dame, Ohio
State and Indiana relay teams and
should keep its slate clean in the
Butler meet.
Two Mile Quartet Strong
Michigan's two mile quartet is
also to be reckoned with tonight.
With Johnny Kautz, Will Ackerman,
Dave Matthews and Ufer passing the
baton, the Wolverine quartet finished
third at the Millrose Games last
February in their only showing of the
season, but in so doing bettered the
time of the Michigan team which
won the same event last year.
Wolverine sprinters Capt. Al Piel
and Al Thomas will face such speed
artists as Pitt's Bill Carter and Ohio
State's Ralph Hammond and Wright,
with either Carter or Hammond rat-
ing the nod.

Sextet Relapses To Old Form,
Loses First Illinois Encounter

IT has been recorded here once or
twice before that press releases
which flood the mail drawer every
day are seldom worth the postage it
takes to send them. Here's one that
is. It comes from an aviation cadet
training field in the Lone Star State.
Shinnying down a flagpole with a
flock of German bullets playing
tag with your sideburns isn't the
healthiest program for training
athletes-but it may have helped
Aviation Cadet Lou Zamperini be-
come one of the world's greatest
Lou is the only man in the world
to storm Hitler's palace, capture hisi
flag, and live to thumb his nose at
the Nazis. He's also the holder of
the national collegiate, the world's
high school, the Pacific Coast Con-
ference and the IC4A mile records,
all won while running for the Uni-
versity of Southern ,California at his
home town, Los Angeles.
ZAMPERINI, now 25 years old, is
at Ellington Field, planning to
break another record. When he
completes his course here as a
bombardier, and goes into action
against the enemy, he will be the
only man to be captured by a Ger-
man general, shot at by Hitler's
personal guards, and return to
blaze away at those same guards
from the long end of a bombsight.
Lou's name is legend on track and
field, so we won't worry about his
legs. 'His adventure in Berlin during
the 1936 Olympics reads like a page
from Robin Hood..
He was only an 18-year-old high
school kid at the time, and had
startled the sports world by setting
a new high school world's mile rec-
ord, and winning a berth on the
American Olympics team. But col-
lecting track titles wasn't Lou's only
extra-curricular activity. He liked
to pick up odds and ends for sou-
venirs-especially when he'd prom-
ised a cute dish in L. A. that he'd
"Bring her something-special."
SO we find Lou idling down a Ber-
lin street one bleak European
afternoon. What to bring the girl?
And suddenly a flag began whip-

ping back and forth before Lou's
eyes. He was in front of Hit-
ler's palace-and Hitler's personal
guards were on duty there, two
columns of them. That flag be-
came like a red rag to a bull.
Soldiers were marching up and
down in front of the palace. One
brief instant found all backs turhed
at once-all backs but Lou's. He
didn't ask for another chance. Zam-I
perini dashed for the pole, scooted
up the shaft, grabbed the flag, ripped
it from the pole, and prepared for
the trip down. Then the soldiers saw
LEAD whistled around his head.
Lou slid down the slippery pole,
and jumped the last 18 feet. He
started to make a dash for it, but
he couldn't move.
"That jump numbed my legs. I
couldn't go," Lou grins about it
now. "Lucky those guards were
bum shots. They caught me,
though-and I got a real taste of
German cursing, kicking and beat-
The guards knocked Zamperini to
the ground and gave him a real going
over. But a strange thing saved him.
A rifle butt was poised for a trip to
Lou's face when a command rang
out: "Halten sie!" It was General
Werfer Von Fritsch, commander-in-
chief of the German Army.
VON FRITSCH questioned Lou
sternly. Lou told the truth.
"I just wanted a swell present
for my gal, and that flag seemed
like a good one."
"I guess it would make, a good
one," Von Fritsch replied. "But
young man you are a fool! What
you have done is punishable here
by .. . death!"
Von Fritsch stared silently at the
boy for a minute, then his face
softened. He thrust the torn swas-
tika in Zamperini's hand and stalked
LOU still has the flag. Not here at
the world's largest multi-motor
school, but at home. He hasn't time
to collect any more souvenirs, he's
too busy learning to give the Ger-
mans, Japs and Italians a souvenir
or two of his own.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., March 13.
-(P)-- Rookie catcher Cliff Dapper,
who was slated to understudy MickeyI
Owen with Brooklyn this season, ap-
peared headed for the No. 3 slot
today when the Dodgers announced
the purchase of veteran Billy Sulli-
van from Detroit.
The Dodgers left today for Miami,
where they open a two-game series
with the New York Giants tomorrow.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., March 13
-()-Marius Russo and rookie Milo
Candini pitched the New York Yan-
kees to their second straight shutout
today, a 2-0 victory over the Cin-
cinnati Reds.
It was the third win in a row for
the world champions, who have not
been scored on in their last 28 in-
nings of exhibition play.
After being- handcuffed by Elmer
Riddle for four innings, the Yanks
opened the scoring in the fifth when
Gerry Priddy drilled a home run over
the left field fence for their first hit
of the game and one of two runs off
Les Hinkle.

Illinois Defense Stars
Despite the fact that they would
have to play the entire three periods
on the Orange and Black defense,
Amo Bessone and George Balestri i
came up to aid the Illini cause. Bal-
estri marked up one tally, while Amo
got that and another to boot.
Although their play turned in last
week against Michigan Tech was def-}
initelW- a marked improvement, the
Wolverines reverted to the type of
play displayed earlier in the season,
and consequently found themselves
on the same spot as in the first Illi-
nois series two months ago. No op-
portunists, the Michigan team failed
to make the best of any break that
came its way.
As in many of the previous Maize
and Blue puck battles, the same old
story prevailed: sloppy playing, with
little back-checking or poke-check-

ing. As it was, Bob Collins' score was
on a long poke from the blue line.
And Johnny Corson got the only
other Michigan marker, blasting the
puck in unassisted.
No Goldsmith
Eddie Lowrey had faint hopes that
Captain Paul Goldsmith would be
ready for action last night, but the
lanky senior hadn't fully recovered
from his back injury. His appear-
ance might have steadied the Wol-
verines, and thus prevented their list-
less and ragged play.
Tomorrow night both teams close
their seasons-one completely dis-
astrous, the other rather successful.
A iMichigan victory would be the
season's third-one more than was
chalked up last year. But that possi-
bility is still a bit remote after last
night's performance.
Illinois, on the other hand, is bent
on retaining its Big Ten title. As
things stand right now, the Illini
