times at bat. Apparently the star
third baseman is over the batting
slump that has plagued him for the
last week.
From the very beginning Coach
Ray Fisher knew he had Michigan's
fifth Conference win in the bag as
Michigan jumped off to a six run
lead in the first two innings.
In the opening frame Davey Nel-
son started the festivities by pok-
ing a Texas Leaguer into left field,
and advancing when Whitey Holman
beat out a bunt. Then Pitcher Bob
Motl really got himself in a hole
when he walked Don Robinson to fill
the bases and bring up slugging Bud
Chamberlain.
The Michigan third baseman took
the first two pitches, then singled
to center scoring Holman and Nel-
son. After Wayne Christenson sacri-
ficed Robinson and Chamberlain to
second and third. Paul Angel handed
the Wolverines two more runs by let-
ting Paul White's easy grounder go
through his legs.
The Maize and Blue bats failed to
quiet down during the second in-
ning as they collected two more runs
on two good hits and a pair of Wild-
cat misplays. By the time the third
inning had rolled around the Wol-
verines had chased Motl from the
mound and were starting to bombard
Bob Busse, new Purple pitcher.
After the second frame Michi-
gan settled down from their high
scoring sprees and managed to get
only one run an inning. The Varsity
tallied in the fifth, sixth and eighth
innings, while holding their foes
scoreless during the entire game. No
Northwestern player got as far as
third base and only two managed to
reach the keystone sack.
Michigan Normal comes to town
Monday in their second game of
their annual home and home series
with the Wolverines. The game will
start at 4 p.m. on the Ferry Field'
diamond with Bill Cain on the mound
for the local nine.

Freshman Bob Wiese Receives
Annual Chicago Alumni Award

BOB WIESI,

Symbolic of the outstanding player
during spring football practice, the
Chicago Alumni Award was yester-
day presented to big Bob Wiese,
190-pound freshman fullback from
Jamestown, N. D.,
Wiese, the first fullback in the
18-year history of the award to he
given the honor, received the trophy,
a full-sized silver football, before a
large crowd of high school coaches
and athletes who were gathered in
Yost Field House for the annual
High School Coaches Clinic.
In joining a long list of great
players who were recipients of the
award, including Merv Pregulman,
Varsity center, and George Ceithamil,
captain and quarterback of next
fall's team. Bob has demonstrated
that he will be one of the best men
on the field when the time comes
for him to make his Varsity debut.
Not only is he the answer to Coach;
Fritz Crisler's prayer for a plunging
fullback who can blast the line to
bits, but Bob is versatile enough to"
be the best punter seen this spring,
and he is capable of tossing a good
left-handed pass when necessary.
Wiese. who is 19 years old and
stands six feet two. won numerals in

White Gridders
Top Blues, 7-0,
In Annual Tilt
Bob Chappius Scores Only
Touchdown; Pat Keefe
Stars In Blue Backfield
By KEV JONES
With rain coming down in fits and
starts, Michigan's gridiron squad yes-
terday put on a sloppy exhibition of
football in the Stadium in which the
White team emerged victorious over
the Blues by a score of 7-0.
Only once did either team get with-
in the opposing 20 yard line, and then
the Whites took advantage of a good
break and two fine runs to put to-
gether the only touchdown of the
day. This came when Merv Pregul-
man, the White center, kicked off to
open the second half, and Pat Keefe
brought the ball up to about the 15,
and a clipping penalty set the Blues
back to their one yard line.
Keefe punted out from deep in his
end zone, only to have Bob Chap-
pius bring the ball back from the 35
to the 13, in one of the best runs
of the day. Chappius gained three
yards in two plays, and turned the
task over to Don Lund, who smashed
over left guard to the two yard line.
Chappius sliced off right tackle for
the score. Pregulnan kicked the ex-'
tra point, with Chappius holding.
Fine Performances Turned In
In spite of the poor playing con-
ditions, several fine performances
were turned in by members of both
teams. Keefe put on a real show of
passing ability in the fourth quarter,
throwing three touchdown passes,
only to have each one dropped in the
clear. Pat also was the most con-
sistent ground gainer the Blue team
had, and he turned in one of the pret-
tiest plays all afternoon when he
quick kicked from his own 45 to the
White 14 in the fourth quarter.
The result might well have been in
favor of the Blues had Keefe been
able to team up with fullback Bob,
Wiese, winer of the annual Chicago
Award. However, Wiese hurt his knee
slightly at the end of the first quar-
ter, and the coaches didn't feel that
it was worth it to chance further in-
jury.
Bob Was 'rops
In the 15 minutes that he did play,
"Blasting" Bob stood out as tops on
the field. In that one period alone,.
Wiese carried the ball 13 times andc
piled up a total of 68 yards from1
scrimmage, more than any other back
could do in the whole game.
This is not to take away from theI
White combination of Chappius and
Lund the credit to which they are
due. Between the two of them they
gained almost all the ground covered
by the Whites, while sharing the
punting duties for the entire game.
Chappius left the game early in the
fourth period, after sufferin a minor
ankle injury. He was able to walk
off the field, however, and will not be
bothered long by the mishap.
Pregulman Stands Out
In the line, big Merv Pregulman
was a tower of strength as a line
backer, and on offense he played his
usual consistent game. It was not
without blocking that Lund was able
to pick up yardage, and Merv con-
tributed more than his share of the
work. He also intercepted one of.
Frank Wardley's passes at the end
of the first quarter.
And on the other side of the line
it was all Julie Franke. Julie, the
Blue left guard, gave the Whites a
taste of real guard play. Julie stop-
ped several plays when it looked as
though there was a long gain in
the offing.
Leon .g Run By Keenan
Longest run of the day was racked
up in the first period by Bill Keenan,

Blue wingback. Lund punted from
his 32, and Keenan took the kick, a
high flogfter, on his own 30. Almost
immediai.tly he was tackled, and then
squirml dout 1 the defensive grasp
and started down the right side of
the field. Nice downfield blocking
coupled with some shifty changes of
pace took him to the last man, mighty
Merv Pregulman, who pushed the fly-
inp; halfback's lone blocker into his
path, bringing him down on the
White 37 aft cr a run' of 33 yards.
Late in the fourth qtarter, the
smartest piece of thinking of the
game was turned in by George Kiesel,
Blue qua rtcrback. Wilh time unning
out the Blues had the ball fourth and
14 (;n their own 40. So Kiesel had
Keele drop back to punt and hand
the ball to Keenan on a fake kick.
Result: 15 yar'ds and a first down.

(Continued from Page 1)

at his heels were teammates Bill
Trepanier and Bob Wright.
Not satisfied with that perform-
ance, the Buckeye speedboy rocketed
through a 220-yard dash in true
championship form and was clocked
in 21 seconds flat. Hammond de-
feated his mate, Trepanier, while
Michigan's Chuck Donahey took
third. Michigan was without sprint-
er Lenny Alkon who was sidelined
two weeks ago by glandular fever.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the
meet was the defeat of "Hose Nose"
Ufer in his specialty, the 440-yard
dash, by both Buckeye runners, Russ
Owen and Leroy Collins. Classed as
the major upset of the meet, Ufer's
unexpected defeat was a big blow to
the Wolverines' hopes for a close
victory over the Buckeyes.
Ufer Is Nipped
Owen was clocked in 48 seconds
flat, beating the speedy Ufer by less
than a yard. Collins managed to
nip the Michigan ace at the tape
also.
Running one of the finest races of
his career, Wolverine Dave Matthews
swept the field to take first in the
fast time of 1:53.8, eight yards in
front of teammate Johnny Kautz who
was an equal distance ahead of Wol-
verine John Roxborough.
The highlight of the program was
the gruelling two-mile battle in which
the surprising Wolverines grabbed
both first and second place. Ernie
Leonardi, after trailing Buckeye Gene
Kiracofe for seven laps, took him on
the back stretch of the final lap and
won in 9:41.
However, the story lies in Johnny
McKean's defeat of Kiracofe for sec-
ond place. McKean was approxi-
mately 200 yards behind the Buck-
eye runner when the latter began to
fade. Taking advantage of this fact,

McKean put on a terrific sprint and
nipped him five yards from the
tape. Wolverine Jim Conant finished
fourth.
Michigan opened the meet in fine
fashion as Will Ackerman, John In-
gersoll and Willie Glas finished in a
dead heat, hand in hand, to sweep
the mile run. The time was 4:28.4.
Timber-topper Wright became Ohio
State's second double winner, taking
both hurdle events. He led team-
mate George Hoeflinger across in
the 120-yard high hurdles in 14.5
seconds. Frank McCarthy, handi-
capped by an injured thigh, was a
close third. Wright came back in the
220-yard low hurdles with a bang,
streaking through the flight in 23.2
seconds. Al Thomas took third.
The final track event of the pro-
gram, the mile relay, saw the power-
ful Buckeye quartet of Yates, Ham-
mond, Collins and Owen defeat the
Wolverine outfit of Jim Sears, George
Pettersen, Thomas and Ufer easily in
3:19.7.
Bucks Sweep Field Events
The Buckeyes took every first in
the five field events, opening with a
grand slam in the broad jump as
Dupre, Trepanier and Crable fin-
ished in that order. The distance
was 23 feet 3 inches. Stimmel took
the pole vault at 12 feet 4 inches with
Bob Segula third. Johnson heaved
the discus 159 feet 1 inch to beat
Wolverine George Ostroot who was
second. Ostroot came back to take
second in the shot put behind Buck-
eye Shaw who tossed the 16-pound
ball 47 feet 8/2 inches. Hoeflinger
won the high jump at 6 feet 1/2 inch,
McCarthy tying for second.
The Wolverine track manager,
Chuck Boynton, classed the victorious
Buckeye cinder squad as "one of the
finest track machines seen in Big
Ten competition in years."

PIMLICO RACE TRACK, Balti-
more, May 9.-OP)-Alsab came back
today. With the same thunder in
his legs and iron in his heart that
carried him to greatness a year ago,
the little colt roared down Pimlico's
stretch to win the classic Preakness
Stakes and end the jinx on him all
this year.

He did it the hard way, too, as a
record crowd of 42,000 fans roared
him on. He came from far back
and on the outside to run over eight
of the nine other horses in the field
in the last quarter mile and finish on
top by a length. The others tried
gamely but couldn't withstand his
sprint.
There was no question about this
one. Alsab was a clean length on
top at the wire, while Ben Whitaker's
Requested from Texas and Warren
Wright's Sun Again, the big young-
ster who was a doubtful starter until
two hours before post-time, battled
it out for second honors.
They hit the tape so close, first
neck and neck, then head and head
and finally nose and nose on the
wire that not even the camera could
split them and they finished in a dead
heat. A length back of them, after
being last at the mile mark in the
mile-and-three-sixteenths struggle,
came Maryland's pride, R. Sterling
Clark's Colchis.
