later for the 220, Ufer snapped off
the starting blocks, drove out of the
chute into the stretch and snapped
the tape ahead of Captain Al Piel to
win in the fast time of 21.3 seconds.
Despite an injured left foot, Piel took
second ahead of teammate Chuck
Donahey, making it a grand slam for
the Maize and Blue. -
The promised duel in the half-mile
developed as expected between Michi-
gan's Dave Matthews and Rehberg.
Although he had run the quarter less
than 30 minutes previously, Rehberg
passed Matthews just past the last
turn after the Michigan half-miler
had led from the opening gun. Reh-
berg's time was 1:56. Wolverine

double victory of Illini Don Olsen in
the two hurdle races. The timber-
topping ace raced through the 220-
yard lows in 23.3 seconds, beating
both Al Thomas and Chuck Pinney.
The time was one-tenth of a second
under Illini Bob Wright's 1936 mark
of 23.4 seconds, but was discounted
because of the stiff wind at his back.
Olsen had a difficult time in the
highs as Bud Byerly held the lead for
75 yards, losing it when he kicked
two hurdles. Frank McCarthy, Michi-
gan's top hurdler, was scratched be-
cause of a huscle injury in his right
thigh, suffered in his first broad
jump. Another Michigan man, Joe
Lahey, took third.
The Maize and Blue swept the 100-
yard dash as'Thomas, Piel and Don-
ahey breezed across in that order.
The winning time was 9.8 seconds.
Wind Slows Distance Events
Both the mile and two-mile events
were disappointing, largely due to the
stiff wind. Both Seib and Clarence
Dunn took first and second in the
mile for Ilinois' team, third going to
Wolverine Will Ackerman. The time
of 4:36.6 was slow. Dunn came back
to win the two-mile grind in the slow
time of 10:07,2 with Wolverine Ernie
Leona.rdi second and Illinois' Don
Gladding third.
The one-mile relay was called off
because the members of the Illinois
team had already competed in two
events and the outcome would have
no effect on the result of the meet.
Highlight of the field events was
the double victory of Michigan's
George Ostroot who took the shot
put with a mighty heave of 46 feet,
3% inches and the discus with a
toss of 139 feet, 1%2 inches. Another
Maize and Blue entry. Gene Hirsch,
took second in the shot put and third
in the discus.
Edwards Wins Vault
Bob Segula and Frank MacClear
finished second and third in the pole
vault behind Illini Herb Matter who
won at 12 feet, 4 inches. Charlie Ed-
wards gave Illinois another first in
the high jump with a leap of 6 feet,
2% inches. Henry Schmidt cleared
6 feet for a second place.
Bill Lewis added five points to the
losers' score by taking the broad jump
with a leap of 23 feet, 2% inches.
McCarthy's jump of 22 feet, 2%
inches on which he suffered his leg
injury, gave him a second place.
Illinois took eight firsts to five
for Michigan, a proof of the balance
and all-around, power of Coach Ken
Doherty's squad.
There was sdme doubt as to whe-
ther Captain Piel's injured foot will
keep him out of the coming dual meet
next Saturday with Ohio State's
Buckeyes at Columbus.

New Vault Record
BERKELEY, Calif., May 2.--()-
Cornelius "Wonderman" Warmer-
dam, the new American Eagle, soared
to a new world record again today.
The Piedmont study hall professor
pole-vaulted over the crossbar at 15
feet 6% inches, bettering all existing
outdoor records.
Although Warmerdam has a higher
jump, 15 feet 7% inches, it was made
indoors in Boston Feb. 14. When and
if the International Federation meets
to compare records, it is probable the
indoor mark will not be given the
same consideration as the standard-
ized outdoor mark. Warmerdam him-
self considers this his world record.
It cracked the mark he set last
June 6 at Compton of 15 feet 5%
inches.

Weirmen Hand
Maroons First
Loss Of Year
Hammett, Porter Beaten
in Singles, Bitt Netmen
Sweep Other Matehes
By BART JENKS
With a burst of power greater than
even the most optimistic expected,
Michigan's netmen yesterday after-
noon downed a strong Chicago team,
7-2, in a lard fought battle.]
Although the Maroons tried very
hard yesterday to maintain their
perfect season's record the best they
could do was to take the one and1
two singles matches and force the
Wolverines to play their best tennis
In winning the rest of the matches.
Hanmett Loses To Sawyier
Lawton Hammett was Cal Sawyer's
victim in the top match and though
he was never close to winning he
played his heart out trying. Sheer
courage carried him to an 8-6 vic-
tory in the first set after being be-
hind nearly all the way. But Sawyier
was not to be denied yesterday. Using
equally effective fast, low forehand
and backhand drives he had Ham-
mett deep in his back court much of
the time and scored many points on
placements andpassing shots. Gath-
ering momentum with each game he
won the last tw sets, 6-3, 6-0.
The second Chicago victory was a
heartbreaker for Jim Porter and a
great triumph for his opponent, Walt
Kemetick. With match point for Por-
ter in the tenth game of the third set
however, Kemetick rallied and after+
surviving another match point went
on to win three straight games and
the match, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Low Brackets Prove Margin 1
The three, four, five and six brack-
ets were perhaps the ones upon which
hinged the Wolverines' chances for
victory.
Wayne Stille ran into a stubborn
foe in Bill Self. undefeated until
today. Stille, after being behind,
3-2, started rushing the net and put
away numerous placements to win
the next four games and the set. In
the second set he took a command-
ing 5-2 lead and seemed sure to win
when Self made a great comeback
by taking five successive games to
win, 7-5. The third set was a seesaw
affair but the 'uke finally ended it
at 7-5.
Gerry Schaflander took his match
in the shortest time of the day. After
playing Bill Lifton, also hitherto un-
defeated this year, to 4-4 in the first
set, he started rushing the net for
the first time and took the next two
games and the set. The second and
deciding set was all Gerry's and he
raced through Lifton to a 6-1 win.
Gamon Plays Beautifully
Tom Gamon played beautiful ten-
nis yesterday and it really paid off.
Mixing up his shots well he utilized a
good overhead and sharply angled
placements to down Dave Martin,
another Maroon previously undefeat-
ed, 6-2, 6-3.
Jinx Johnson won his seventh con-
secutive match this season to almost
assure him of top seeding in his
bracket at the Big Tens. As usual,
he played a very steady game and
forced his opponent, Walt Michel, in-
to numerous errors. The final score
was 6-4, 6-3.
First Doubles To Varsity
The one and two doubles were
Michigan's by a landslide. At num-
ber two, Porter and Gamon, who
really had a day for himself, were
red hot and playing flawlessly, over-
whelmed Kemetick and Self, 6-1, 6-2.
Hammett and Stille defeated a weak
Sawyier-Lif ton duo. 6-3, 6-2.
In the three slot Schaflander and
Johnson turned in a spectacular per-
formance to accomplish what no

other team was able at the Big Tens
last year. With match point against
them in the third set at 4-5 they
came back to win three straight
games and the match, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5,
against Chicago's champion dio of
Martin and Walt Johansen.

Shut Out Wins
Derby Classic;
Alsab Second
Son Of Equipose Leads
For Over Two Lengths;
Devil Diver Fades
CHURCHILL DOWNS, Louisville,
Ky., May 2.-UP)-A dream came true
along Churchill Downs' heart-break-
ing stretch today when a chocolate
son of a great chocolate daddy drop-
ped out of the clouds in the last quar-
ter mile to win the richest Kentucky
Derby of them all.
A dozen years after a last minute
'breakdown robbed his daddy, Equi-
poise, of his chance at the prized
necklace of roses, this new chocolate
soldier-Mrs. Payne Whitney's Shut
Out-ran his heart out in a mighty
stretch struggle to win for his famous
father.
Wins By Two Lengths
All the long-way down "Heartbreak
Boulevard" he went all out, and fin-
ally he hit the wire 2%/4 lengths in
front of Alsab, the fine little juvenile
champion of last year, who camne
back a long way toward his two year
old heights with today's effort.
It was a double-barreled triumph
for the "bum" of Mrs. Whitney's
fashionable Greentree Stable, whose
name was wished on him because of
the fact his owner is a Brooklyn
Dodger fan. For, even as the field
of 15-largest since War Admiral
whipped 19 others in 1937-paraded
to the post and the traditional hush
fell as "My Old Kentucky Home"
drifted out, the Greentree Stable
bosses still regarded Ekky's son as
only its second best bet, not nearly
the horse his mate, Devil Diver, was.
Greentree Entry Favored
And the bettors, who poured $631,-
198 into the mutuel machines on the
Derby alone, made the two-part en-
try favorite at $5.80 for $2 virtually
exclusive because of what they
thought of the Diver.
But in the final pull, only Shut
Out and Alsab survived, and the
Diver and all the rest of the top
contenders in this widest open Derby
in history found out why they call
it "Heartbreak Road," this longest
stretch in America. That last quar-
ter mile got him, and he faded to
sixth place, trailing not only the first
two home, but also Valdina Orphan,
who faltered to third and the high-
speed rheumatic With Regards, who
set the early pace, then wound up
fourth.
And back of the Diver, came such
other high-and-mighty pre-Derby
standard bearers as the imported
Hollywood in ninth place, and hand-
some Apache in eleventh. Far down
the track at the finish and all but
out of sight came the little fellow
from deep in the heart of Texas, Re-
quested, who never got in it and was
eased up to 14th place.
