ing the second inning that gave the
Riveters their lone marker.
The Boilermakers, who were seek-
ing their second conference win,
looked rather helpless against the
Wolverines as they errored in the,
field and struck out at the plate in
typical Sunday School picnic style.
Nelson Opens Barrage
In the big first inning, Davey Nel-,
son led off festivities with a walk and
took third on Whitey Holman's
single. Don Robinson, next up, con-
tinued to bat above .500 as he lashed
a single to right scoring Nelson.
After both Holman and Robinson
took second and third on the throw
to the plate, they both came home
on Chamberlain's hit to centerfield.
After Wayne Christenson had struck
out, husky Paul White hit a hard
liner over the centerfielder's head for
a healthy triple, scoring Chamber-
White came home easily when Don
Boor singled to left. Coach Dutch
Fehring then tried to stop the paradeI
,of Wolverine batters by lifting Leif-
helit and putting in Berto. But this
was like adding fuel to a fire because?
George Harms, Nelson and Holman
reached base. Robinson, up for the
second time, walked forcing in HarmsI
with Michigan's seventh run of thej
inning. Chamberlain then came;
through with his timely home run
with the bases loaded.
Chamberlain Ties Record
During the whole game Chamber-
lain batted across a total of eight
runs, which is the most any Michi-
gan player has pushed across in the
last three years.
The Wolverines picked up their
other two runs in the fifth inning.
Nelson hit a single to right followedl

by Holman's who looped a Texas
Leaguer to center field.. They both
advanced a base on a wild pitch and
scored a few moments later when
Chamberlain drove a single to center.
Whitey Holman made a circus
catch of Tony Berto's short fly in left
field . . . The ever-joking fielder
had to make a complete somersault

(Special to The Daily)
EVANSTON, Ill., April 24.--Michi-
gan's strong tennis team won
its second conference match of the
season yesterday, topping a tough
Illinois squad, 6-3. Once again it was
Co-Captain Lawton Hammett who
set the pace as the Wolverines swept
five of the six singles matches to
clinch the victory.
Hammett, continuing his aggres-
sive play, defeated the Illini number
one man, Bob Gates, 7-5, 6-1. Again
Hammett's hard smashes and forc-
ing net play proved very effective,
putting Gates on the defensive from
the very beginning of the match.
Time and again the gallery came to
its feet to cheer the Wolverine ace.
Gates, though he tried valiantly,
couldn't muster the speed to return
Hammett's beautiful placement-s.
Porter Bags Win
Jim Porter, the Michigan number
two man, was very smooth and steady
and had little trouble in copping a
6-1, 6-1 match from Art Von Spreck-
en who failed to live up to expecta-
tions because of wildness. Gerry
Schaflander lost the first set of his
match with Dick Lothrop 0-6 but re-
gained his poise and accuracy when
he found himself successfully at the
net. Disheartened by several beauti-
ful placements by the Michigan net-
ter, Lothrop seemed to lose hope and
faded in the last two sets, which
Schaflander won by the lopsided{
scores of 6-1, 6-2.
Co-Captain Wayne Stille also
played a good game of tennis yester-
day in taking Hal Saikley, 7-5, 6-0.
Stille after a slow start gained mo-3

mentum as the match went on, dis-
playipg some of the finest tennis off
the afternoon in blanking his oppo-
nent in the final set of his match.
Johnson Wins, Gamon Loses
Jinx Johnson played his usual
steady game in forcing Harry Pilz
to make the errors to gain a 6-3, 6-3
win. Tom Gamon, the only Wolver-

hours before the Illinois netter fin-
ally emerged victorious.
Coach Leroy Weir's shakeup in the
Michigan doubles teams, which was
successful in winning all three
doubles matches with Wisconsi, Was
not as successful yesterday, the Ham-
mett-Stille duo being the only Mich-
igan doubles team to gain a victory.
Stille and Hammett played well to-
gether and formed a smooth working'
doubles team.
The last two doubles matches were
close, but the Michigan players could
not gather the punch that the vic-
torious Michigan duo had. The Wol-
verines looked as if they were slightly
tired and finally bowed in defeat.
This should not, however, take any
of the credit away 'from the Illini
teams of Gates and Saikley who de-
feated Schaflander and Porter 8-6,
8-6 and Clapper and Pilz who won
from Gamon and Johnson 6-3, 8-6.
Joe Louis' Trainer,
Blackburn, Victim
Of Heart Ailment
CHICAGO, April 24.-(/P)-Jack
"Chappie" Blackburn, the guiding
genius behind champion Joe Louis'
sensational ring career, died today.
One of the outstanding Negro
trainers of the prize ring and himself
one of the greatest defensive fighters
who ever lived, Blackburn was re-
garded on the road to recovery after
a siege of pneumonia. Convalescing
at home the last three weeks, he had
gone for an automobile ride Wednes-

al time of 1:49.7 seconds for his blis-
tering half-mile. Running third for
the first lap and a half of his stint,
the Aggie athlete cut loose with a
driving finish to pass Mac Umstattd
of Texas and then came up behind
Wolverine Dave Matthews. The two
hit the stretch curve matching pace
for pace, but Lyda shoved his speedy
legs into high gear coming into the
tape and finished three yards ahead1
of the Wolverine.
Michigan Qualifies Two
The Michigan sprint relay team,
composed of Al Thomas, Len Alkon,
Capt. Al Piel and Chuck Donahey,
grabbed qualifying positions for to-

tle in the finals of the distance med-
ley relay before dropping into third
place at the finish. Bob Rehberg,
Illinois sophomore, running the an-
chor leg, carried the Illini to victory
with a mighty mile, passing Notre
Dame and Michigan men in a stir-
ring finish. Pettersen. John Rox-
borough, Ernie Leonardi and Johnny
Kautz comprised the Wolverine quar-
tet in the race.
Frank McCarthy carried off what-
ever honors accrue to the hard-luck
man today. Competing in the 120-
yard high hurdles, the versatile Wol-
verine drew the fastest heat for his
trials and finished third, only a step
out of a qualifying second place. Bob
Wright, Ohio State's Big Ten record
holder for the event, won his heat
handily but still turned in the slowest
time of any of the winners,
Johnny Wise, Wolverine javelin-
thrower, hurled the pointed spear 175
feet 8 inches to finish seventh among
the qualifiers. McCarthy's fourth-
place leap in the broad jump was
good for 23 feet 3 V4 inches, one of
the best he has ever done, while
George Ostroot's discus heave trav-
elled 147 feet 5 inches before set-
tling down to rest.
With the finals in the sprint and
mile relays, as well as in the two-
mile and four-mile baton-passing
events to be run tomorrow, the Wol-
verines are conceded a very good
chance of bringing home at least one
of the relay titles.

(wrial "to '1 inDWIvy)
IA,'' ANSING, April 24. - -Trhe
University of Michigan golfers op-
pose the Michbig an State Spartans
here tomorrow on the Lansing Coun-
try Club course in the 22nd meeting
of the two teams.
It was back in 1929 when the Var-
sity first faced State and won by an
overwhelming score of 17-1. Since
that time when the 13-year rivalry
first began, Michigan has won 15
mntches. lost five, while one ended
its ;r te.
Lt,; yea, r t 11 mon- 1-homec
series each team took one contest on
t heir (wn course. The Wolverines
wIon here on the University course
by a count of 19-8, while the Spar-
tans took their home match, 12-6.
Now, on the eve of the Green and
White's first match of the current
campaign, each squad will present a
lineupthat should produce an evenly
imiatled contest.,
Michigan I'avored
Michigan, however, must be ruled
slight favorites over State, based on
th fact that this is the Spartans'
opener, while the Wolverines have
already played two close matches
against Kentucky and Ohio State.
The Walnut Hills Country Club
was the scene of the match at East
Lansing last year but Coach Ray
Courtright made a special request
that it be played at the Lansing
Country Club this time because the
Varsity linksmen are more familiar
with the latter course.
Junior Ben Smith, who is from

Fort Meyers, Fla., will tee off in the
number-one position for the Maize
and Blue golfers. Opposing him will
be Ralph Kortge, one of the Spar-
tans' reliable players returning from
last year's team.
In the second spot for Michigan
will be the much improved Chan Si-
monds, who will face George Busch,
another State letterman from last
season. Jim Funston, the third of
the three returning Varsity men, is
scholastically ineligible this year and
in all probability will be replaced by
Joe Watson, who was kept from
competing last year because of aca-
demic difficulties.
Other Starters
Varsity lettermen Bob Fife, Dave
Osler and Captain John Leidy will
fill in the third, fourth and fifth
spots, while Bill Stewart, Bill Court-
right and Phil Marcellus will play in
the last three positions for the Wol-
For the Spartans, Bob Billig, Win-
ford Barnum, Jim Davis, Tom Willis,
Phil Goodrich and Henry Pollard
will, in all probability, see service
tomorrow against the Maize and Blue
l inksmcn .
Smith and Simonds have both been
playing exceptionally good early sea-
son golf and should give their oppo-
nents tough competition. Captain
Leidy, usually a late starter, has im-
proved more rapidly than ever this
year, while Osler and Fife, although
still a little unsteady, should shoot
better tomorrow.
