on base on an error. The Tartars
also managed to get only one ball
out of the infield, which was just
a long out.
Michigan piled it on in the first
of the third when Robinson led off
with a double down the third-base
line. "Robby" came racing home
when Chamberlain knocked a sharp
single past the shortstop. Bud then
promptly stole second and third off
catcher Doug Rutherford. Stenberg
continued the spree when he scored
Chamberlain with a single over sec-
ond. White looked like he had his
second hit of the fray when he hit a
long blow between the center and
right fielders, but Earl Hill pulled
down the ball at the last second.
Stenberg started running when he
saw the ball leave the bat and was
almost down to third when the ball
was caught. "Steny" wheeled about
and came racing back for first just
in time.
Cartmill Drives In Run
After Stenberg had stolen second.
Cartmill drove him in for the last
Michigan run with a safety over
third base. The next two Wolverine
batters went down in order to end
the frame.
Coach Fisher plans a light work-
out for his squad tomorrow in prep-
aration for the coming week-end,
when the Wolverines travel to Cham-
paign to play Illinois on Friday and
Saturday and then meet Chicago in
a doubleheader on Monday.

games as they play the Great Lakes

his hard aggressive play of this after-
noon is any indication, Aldy ought
to be plenty tough in the Big Tens
this weekend.
Meanwhile, in the four bracket
Gerry Schaflander kept up his slight-
ly spectacular play, coming from be-
:ind after losing the first set, 6-1, to
win the next two sets and the match,
1-6, 6-0, 6-3.
Gaman Continues Fine Play
Michigan's other singles winner.
Tom Gamon, continued his fine play
in walloping the Broncos' Walt War-
ren, 6-4, 6-0. Gamon used a good
overhead combined with deep angled
drives to keep his opponent on the
defensive throughout.
The story was somewhat different
in the top two singles, the Broncos
taking both matches handily. What
happened was not unexpected, how-
ever, as the Broncos' captain, Gene
Russell, is one of the finest players
in the middlewest and with Walt
Stuckert helps make up probably the
best one-two punch to face the Wol-
verines this year.
Lawt Hammett, somewhat off
form, got nowhere against Russell,
taking the first game in both first
and second sets only to have the
State champion run off six games
each time to win, 6-1, 6-1.
Jim Porter came up against a very
determined foe in lithe, blond Walt
Stuckert, and lost, 6-4, 6-4. Porter
likewise was not up to top form yes-
terday while Stuckert played a hard
fast game to put away many place-
ments and smashes.
Doubles Matches Split
The doubles were split. For Michi-
gan, Porter-Gamon at number two
gave more indications of their power
by walking over Campbell-Gensichen,
6-1, 6-2, although they were not at
top form. More interesting, though
it went to the Broncos, was the one
doubles between Hammett-Stille and
Russell - Stuckert. The Wolverines

. ..leads team to victory
were leading 4-3 in the deciding set
when the Broncos broke through
Stille's service and went on to win
the set and match, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4. The
third doubles match was called of f
after the Wolverines had taken te
first set 9-7 and were coming roin
behind in the second set.

In Conference
Cinder Meet
MIihigan, Indiana, Illn
To Battle For Second
Position Laurels
A well-balanced track aggregation
from Ohio State is favored to win
the Western Conference track and
field meet Saturday with the track
stars from the remaining Big Ten
Schoolsf ighting for individual hon-
or. This meet, the forty-second
running of this classic, will be held
at Evanston, Ill.
Thus the Buckeyes foresee to end
the seven year old domination of this
Big Ten track title by Michigan and
Indiana. The Wolverines and Hoos-
iers, however, will not surrender the
limelight of this meet to the Ohioans
because the hottest contest will be
staed by these teams for the second
place berth. Illinois .is also granted
a pos;ibility of winning the runner-
up position.
Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin will
probably fill in the next three places.
Individual Stars Entered
With many individual stars entered
the meet forecasts many fine per-
formances. Such stars as Campbell
Kane of Indiana, Dave Matthews of
Michigan, Ralph Hammond of Ohio
State. Bob Ufer of Michigan and Bob
Wright of Ohio State will vie for Big
Ten chanipionships in ther respective
Kane and Earl Mitchell, another
Indiana runner, head the milers and
threaten the meet record of 4:10.8.
Earl ran the distance in 4:10.7 in an
early season meet. Kane, however,
will defend his title in the half mile.
At present he is the National Collegi-
ate champ in the event and a Big
Ten record holder in 1:51.3. His
fastest time this year of 1:55.4 how-
ever doesn't compare with Dave Mat-
thew's time of 1:53.8.
Bob Wright of Ohio State gave the
Michigan team a fine account of him-
self in the dual meet last Saturday
,t Columubus. He won both the 120
yard high hurdles and the 220 low
hurdles with ease in :14.5 and :23.2
respectively. In the latter event his
winninz time is several tenths of a
second faster than his time in taking
dthe tit le last year.
Ufer Has Tough Competition
Michigan's hope in the 220 yard
dash, Bob Ufer. will have tough go-
ing in the Conference meet due to
the fast runs made recently by Capt.
Ralph Hammond of the Buckeye
squad. The OSU captain ran a :21
flat 220 with Bob's top performance
registering a :21.3.
Ufer's specialty in the quarter mile
may not be hampered much except
tor Russ Owen, another Buckeye
track star. "Hose Nose," however,
claims the American indoor record of
:48.1 and will be aiming at the Big
Ten record of :47.4 which was set in
1516 by Binga Dismond of Chicago.
The old injury story still hangs
over the Wolverine track squad with
Len Alken and Buel Morley out of the
lineup. The vacancy left open by
Bue1's ipjury weakens the mile re-

Linksmen Face
Michigan State
Without Smith
After absorbing a 24 to 12 defeat
at the hands of the Ohio State Buck-
eyes on Monday, the Maize and Blue
linksmen will try to get back on the
victory trail again today when they
face Michigan State on the Univer-
sity course.
Because of the fact that it is so
near to final examinations, there will
be no morning best ball matches-
only five singles contests which will
get under way about 1:30 p.m. Ex-
actly how the two teams will line up
will not defiintely be known until
starting time. There probably will
not, however, be much variation in
Michigan's team from the way they
playedagainst Ohio State, except
that this will not be an eight man
match and Ben Smith will not be
Smith To ,Rest Shoulder
Coach Ray Courtright is keeping
the lanky junior out of the fray in
order that he may rest his injured
shoulder for the Illinois contest on
Saturday and the Western Confer-
ence meet next Monday and Tues-
day. In Smith's place will be Chan
Simonds, a newcomer to the team
who has really gone places this year.
Simonds, who ordinarily shoots in
the number two position, will move
up to the first slot to face Spartan
Ralph Kortge. Kortge was beaten
by Smith, 2-1/2, at Lansing last time
when the Green and White ace had a
78, while on the other hand, Simonds
went down to defeat at the hands
of Joe Watson by the same score
as Kortge carded.
Courtright Fast Improving
It would not be at all surprising
if Bill Courtright climbed into the
second spot to tee off against Wat-
son. The stocky junior has been im-
proving rapidly and each match finds
him shooting better and better golf.
Bill has the longest drive on the
squad and his steady playing should
really worry Michigan State.
Also playing for the Varsity will be
Capt. John Leidy, Dave Osler and
Bob Fife, all experienced veterans.
The Spartans will probably use three
of the following men: George Busch,
George Zimmerman, Tom Willis and
Phil Goodrich.

The battle for top honors in the
Residence Halls division which has
been proceeding through the spring
in its own quiet, sporadic sort of
way suddenly has come to the fore
with the eruption scheduled for to-
morrow when the two leading con-
tenders for All Year honors, Wil-
liams and Fletcher, meet in the
finals of the softball and horse-
shoe tourneys.
At the end of the winter season,
Williams had a high total of 734
points to Fletcher's 728 with Pres-
cott, since lost in the shuffle, in be-
tween with 732. This makes tomor-
row's softball match the crooshul
athletic battle of the season.
Neither of the two squads have
lost a game on their way to the
finals, Fletcher taking the East
Quad crown while Williams was
mopping up the West Quad league.
On the mound for Williams will be
a dangerous hurler who has chuck-
ed two one hit games to date,
Howie Fisher. Along with Fisher,
the power men at the plate are
first sacker Frank Comstock and
second baseman Bill Risig. This
trio has aided Williams in main-
taining a batting average of over
.540 throughout the season.
Opposing the powerful Williams
band will be a formidable batch of

diversity in the form of hitters and
fielders headed by Walt Fish, ss.,
Ken Fryar, c., Bob Jones, 3b., and
George Lutz, 1b. On the mound for
Fletcher will be Gordon Andrews who
has yet to bow in defeat in any of
the four games previous.
The game is slated for 7:30 and
one well worth watching. Dig up
a party and come down to South
Ferry Field to watch the best of
the Residence Halls in action.
Incidentally that horseshoe match
which also may have some bearing
on the title race will be played off
at 4:00 p.m. in the pits west of the
Sports Building.

the horseshoe title in the frater-

baseball crown goes on the block
today with Delta Sigma Delta fac-
ing Nu Sigma Nu at 7:30. Both
houses are well up in the All Year
point average so this may prove
another one of those life-and-
death struggles. At the same time
Pi Lambda Phi, the dark and frisky
horse of the Greek softball bracket
will be meeting the All-Year
champs, Phi Delt in a semifinal
round game, the winner to meet
Chi Phi later for the title.
