Alsab Ginning
For Preakness
1941 Baby Champ Weary
Of BeingCalled Bum"
BALTIMORE, May 7.-(YP)-This is
just to let you know that Alsab is
getting more than a little bit weary
of being called a "bum."
So it might be a good idea for the
name-callers to start hedging off
right now, before the game little
guy from Chicago makes them eat
their words-without pepper and salt.
This could happen Saturday in the
52nd running of the Preakness at old
Pimlico, because in the last few days
1941's baby champ looks more like
the kid himself than at any time
since his three-year-old birthday.
Of course, this is not to say that
Good Goods' son is a dead-eyed cinch
to hang it on, the nine others, all
of whom think they have the right
answer for the $60,000 quiz program.
Mrs. Payne Whitney's Shut Out,
who won the Kentucky Derby, and
Devil Diver, who was supposed to,
still stand as the ones to beat.

Injury-Plagued Cinder Squad
Faces OSU Team Tomorrow.

By ED ZALENSKI
An injury-plagued Maize and Blue
cinder squad faces the toughest ob-
stacle in its quest for Conference
track domination Saturday at Col-
umbus against the powerful Ohio
State team.
Loss of two key men and injury to
a third has lessened the hopes of
victory for Coach Ken Doherty's
Michigan track and field forces and
has dropped the Wolverines to an
underdog role in this dual battle with
the Buckeyes.
Coach Doherty must do without
the services of Lehny Alkon, sopho-
more sprinter who is in Health Serv-
ice with glandular fever, and Buel
Morley, member of the championship'
Wolverine mile relay quartet, still ail-
ing as the result of a calf injury at
the Drake Relays.
Captain Al Piel is of doubtful value,
due to a painful foot injury, which he
aggravated in taking two second
places in the dual meet with Illi-
nois here last Saturday. Doctors have
been working on the foot all week,
but there was nothing to report on
his condition. He is listed as a starter
in both the 100- and 220-yard dashes.
Test For Conference
This Saturday's meet ranks as the
year's outstanding dual engagement
within the Conference and is a pos-
sible preview of championship con-
tention in the Big Ten battle to be
held at Northwestern University May
15 and 16.
Coach Doherty, forced to reshuffle
his men because of the injuries, is
still unsure of the fourth man for his
mile relay quartet of Al Thomas, Bob
Ufer and George Pettersen.
The injuries have seriously upset
the balance of the Michigan squad
and have placed a heavy burden on
the "second-stringers" who came
through so well in the Illinois meet.
Second and third places may tell
the story Saturday.
The Buckeyes are banking heavily

on their individual stars, Captain
Ralph Hammond in the sprints, Bob
Wright in the hurdles, George Hoef-
linger in the high jump, and Russ
Owen in the quarter. Against this
formidable array is Michigan's lone
Big Ten ace, Ufer, a pretty sure bet
in the 440-yard dash.

undefeated this season, and Don
Burst, regular six man.,
This will leave only Bobby Jake
of the vaunted Northwestern strength
to play against the Wolverines and,
consequently, Lawton Hammett is al-
most certain to face the undefeated
Northwesterner who is supposed to be
almost as good as Greenberg.
With the resultant shake-up nec-
essary, Coach Weir will probably be
robbed of the opportunity to see how
his men fare against the Wildcat
regulars at those positions. This will
mean that while Michigan gains im-
portant seedings, it will not be able
to judge their most formidable foe
for Conference honors. In the two
matches where they have been at
full strength, the Wildcats downed
Western Michigan, 8-1. and a great
Chicago team by the same score as
the Varsity, 7-2.
The Ohio State match should pre-
sent no trouble to the Wolverines.
The Buckeyes have had a very medi-
ocre team this season to say the
least, losing to Michigan State, a'
team which the Varsity defeated 7-2,
by a score of 8-0. .
Only two men should provide the
Wolverines any trouble. One, Bobby
Harbrecht, will probably face Wayne
Stille. The other Buckeye is Bobby
Fife and he will probably face Tom

gling his lineup lately to try to get
more power at the bat. He recently!
shifted Capt. Dick Erdlitz in from
right field to the hot corner which
also strengthened the infield unit.
Paul Angell seems to have won the
three-way battle for the shortstop
position because of his hitting power.
He is batting at a .454 clip in three
Big Ten games. Otto Graham, soph-
omore sensation, also has hit well so
far this year.
The Wolverines' batting power,
present at the first of the season, has
slumped recently as Bud Chamber-
lain, Davey Nelson and Paul White
have found it tough to get hits. Don
Robinson still .paces the squad at a
.449 rate followed by Don Holman
with .338.

By BUD LOW
Ben Smith, ace Wolverine links-
man, will probably not tee off with
his teammates tomorrow morning
when the Varsity golf squad encoun-
ters the Wildcats of Northwestern in
the first home match of the season.
It was learned from Coach Ray
Courtright yesterday that a shoulder
ailment incurred Tuesday night had
been bothering the Floridan so badly
that he was unable to swing a club.
Smith intends to rest his shoulder
until just prior to the match when
he will take a few practice shots in
the hope that he might possibly be
able to play.
With their number one man out,
of the Wildcat tilt, the Wolverines'
chances would be greatly lessened,
for the Purple squad is the dark-
horse of the Conference this year
and from all indications have one of
their strongest teams in a long while.
Two veterans and three very promis-
ing sophomores who have won six
straight matches so far this year will
undoubtedly give Courtright's charges
the toughest competition they have
encountered all season.
Even if Smith could play, most
likely it would be only in the after-
noon singles rounds. This means that
a switch in best ball matches will be
necessary and it is this, plus the sin-
gles lineup, that has "Corky" in a
quandry.
On Monday the Wolverines will tee
off against Ohio State for the second
time this year. The last time the
teams met was three weeks ago when
the Buckeyes won by a 20% to 151/2
count to beat Michigan for the first
time since 1931. The linksmen are
out for blood and in case Smith can
not play the match should be very
close.
Following the tilts with Northwest-
ern and Ohio State, the Varsity plays

Blues and the Whites, both working
with one end in mind, to come out
the winner in the annual intra-squad

outfits as possible, and no advantage
on either side is apparent even to
the most accomplished observer.
Both the Blues and Whites are
confident of victory. Each has been
working on plays and is beginning
to click as a unit. Both should put
on a polished exhibition of football
and a very exciting game.
