in both contests, they failed to come through in the
pinches with the result that they had eight men left
on bases in each game.
Illinois tallied their only run of the day in the sixth
inning of the second game when Liz Astroth, play-
ing his last game for the Orange and Blue, hit one
of Fishman's fast balls for a single to right with Bart-

tained his number two title against the heavily favored
Bobby Jake who literally clowned himself out of the
championship.
Favored however, the Maroons did not stop at that
and handed the Wolverines a defeat in the one doubles
where a win could have given them a tie for first.
Co-Captain Stille played the best tennis of his career
in both singles and doubles this weekend and today;
climaxed it by completely outplaying Northwestern's

ley on second.
In the second inning of the open
scored their first runs of the after-
noon when they combined three hits
with some clever base running. After
Chamberlain had grounded out, Bob
Stenberg got the first hit of the game
by beating out a ground ball to deep
short. Then Paul White slapped a
hard single to left that sent the
speedy Stenberg to third. When the
Illini right fielder allowed himself to
be upset by Stenberg's jockeying, he
threw wild and permitted Stenberg
to score and White to reach second.
Bill Cartmill, next up, took two pit-
ches before socking a single that
pushed White across for the second
run of the inning and of the ball
game.
Varsity Scores Again
Michigan waited until the eighth
inning to pick up their other run of
the ball game. In that frame the
Varsity took advantage of the Illini's
warm hospitality when they scored
without the aid of a hit.
Robinson, first up, worked Bob
Roth, new Illini pitcher, for a walk
and then promptly stole second. After
Chamberlain had pushed the Wolver-
ine shortstop over to third on a
ground ball, Robinson came home
when Stenberg hit to short. This
made the score read 3-0.
The Wolverines won't be able to
take much of a well-deserved rest
because they must leave for Chica-
go tonight where they will face the
Maroons in a double header Mon-
day.

t Furriners On Fairways
ALMOST OVERNIGHT, our proud
little city has become the hotbed
of midwestern collegiate golf. Yester-
day four collegiate matches were held
on the spacious. fairways of the Uni-
versity course-Michigan vs. Illinois,
Minnesota vs. Wisconsin, Michigan
State vs. Northwestern and Michigan
State vs. Indiaha. The Spartans.
played one in the morning, the other
in the afternoon.
The main reason for the influx of
Big Ten linksmen into Ann Arbor
is, of course, the holding of the West-
ern Conference Meet here tomorrow
and Tuesday. So it is that five Con-
ference teams besides Michigan
tuned up over the site of this Big Ten
golfing classic yesterday. The rest,
are due in town today for a practice
round, that is, all except Iowa are
expected.
Then at 9 a.m. tomorrow, 45
golfers will take their place at the1
first tee and the battle will be on.
Illinois will be defending the title
it won a year ago, with Ohio State
a slight favorite to replace the
Illini as Conference champs. The
Wolverines and the Wildcats will
give the Buckeyes a tough fight be-
fore it's over, though, and playing
on their home course, it won't be
a major surprise to anybody if
Coach Ray Courtright's Michigan;
men grab the crown and glory that
goes with it.
TUST WHO will emerge as indi-
vidual Conference champ is some-
thing that can't be answered or
guessed. There are too many good
golfers in the field, and too many
others who can fire hot rounds for
two days running to edge men who i
are consistently better than they. 1
But the Conference links king
should come from one of the follow-1
ing-Michigan's Ben Smith, North-<
western's Dick Haskell and Johnny1
Stoltz, Illinois' Johnny Holmstromt
and Ohio State's Billy Gilbert. Smith,
is generally recognized as the class
of the Conference, but he still is
troubled by that injured shoulder.
He is playing over his own course,
however, and that should give him a
small advantage. Two years ago Gil-
bert placed in the National Colle-
giates, but he has never been able
to beat the Wolverine pacesetter. The
two Wildcats, Haskell and Stoltz, are
two lads who can shoot sub-par golf
but not too often. Holmstrom fell
apart yesterday, but he will doubt-
less regain his form in the big tour-
nament.?
/)RIFTWOOI ANI) SPLINTERS:
No announcement concerning the
status of Fritz Crisler was fort h -
coming from yesterday's Regents'
meeting . .. which may be taken as;
an indication that the good Master
Fritz will remain here at least until
the physical hardening program is
organized and underway . one
prominent University official claimed
that he believed Fritz was needed too
much here to take a post as football
coach at the Great Lakes Naval
Training Station ... and that seems
to be the prevalent view .
Doc May received another honor

his many long years of service to

too bad the Wolverines couldn't
do better to make the little guy's
last official act a more memorable
one.

:arry Hall, hitherto undefeated this
ear, in the match which at the time
e ended the big barrier to the cham-
ionship. Stille took the first set
ery decisively, 6-0, so decisively, in
act that Hall never once headed
euce. The second set went to Hall,
-5, as he picked up his game and
title relaxed slightly but the Duke
nded all doubles as the better play-
r when he came back to power his
ay to victory in the third, 6-3.
Schaflander Stars
Gerry Schaflander was the only
ouble winner in the tournament
nd likewise outclassed the other men
a his bracket more than any other
ndividual winner did. Gerry never
nce let up in his three matches and
oday won his title by handily de-
eating Lothrop of Illinois, 6-2, 6-2.
Tom Gamon, winner at number
yve, set a Michigan record as he be-
ame the first Michigan man in his-
>ry to win an individual title two
ears in a row. Gamon, reliable as
Iways, used his strong forehand to
>rce his opponent, Jim Clapper (Ill.)
nto errors and to win many points
n placements.
Wolverines Miss On Doubles
Michigan had thought it would
eed eight points in the doubles but
, turned out that they only needed
x. The Wolverines never got six,
owever, as the Chicago and North-
estern duos won the one and two
rackets from the Wolverines.
The two doubles match with the
ildcats was one of the two most
nportant matches in the whole meet
:om the Wolverine standpoint for it
neant that the winner would pick
p two vital points. The story of the
hatch is that old, old one of one
eam being hot and the other below
ar. For Northwestern, Bob Good-
ind, a fizzle in the singles, proved
1most flawless in this match and
ith Harry Hall combined to down
orter and Gamon, 6-4, 6-3.
The expected victory in the one
oubles could still have given Michi-
an a tie but Sawyier-Michel made
ie most of the Wolverine misplays
win, 1-5, 0-6, 6-2.
The three doubles was merely a
>ntinuation of the good Michigan
lay and Schaflander-Johnson wad-
d through the Illinois duo, 6-2, 8-6,
win the bracket title. Unfortun-
tely, however, the victory only gave
he Wolverines one point and left
hem one point behind Northwestern.

Illini, 21 22
Courtright And Smith Pace
Wolverines To Easy Win
Over Weak Foes
By BUD LOW
Preparing for the Western Con-
ference Golf Meet here in Ann Arbor
on tomorrow and Tuesday, the Wol-
verine linksmen trounced Illinois' de-
fending champions by a score of 21 /2
to 21%/ on the home course yesterday.
Leading Michigan back on the win
trail again were juniors Bill Court-
right and Ben Smith, who teamed to-
gether in the morning best ball con-
tests to gain 212 points for the Var-
sity cause, and then came back in
the singles tilts to score victories over
their hapless Illini opponents.
Courtright continued his brilliant
play of late by carding the low medal
score of the day, a 73, to down John-
ny Hayes by a count of 3 to 0. The
Orange and Blue ace shot a 75, but
it was not quite good enough as Bill
scored birdies on the last two holes to
come home with a par for the back
nine and one over for the eighteen
hole round.
Smith Makes Comeback
Ben Smith, playing against John
Holmstrom in the number one spot,
made a magnificent comeback after
his poor round in the morning. The
Wolverine star carded a 39 on the
first nine when his putting was de-
cidedly off, but he blasted back on
the final nine with a one under par
35 for a 74 total. Smith took five
holes in a row from Holmstrom, the
man who tied him for third in the
Conference meet last year, to win six
up. In losing 3 to 0, the Illinois cap-
tain had a high 81.
Captain John Leidy also contribu-
ted his bit to the cause when he
scored a 77 to beat Ross Read, who
tallied an 84, 3 to 0. Leidy was out in
41, and then he too started rolling
as he shot a par 36 coming home.
Simonds Cards 76
In the only morning singles match,
Chan Simonds carded a 76 in taking
a 22-1/2 victory over Jim McCarthy
who shot a 78. Simonds' 76 was the
best score tallied in the forenoon, and
was very good considering that cold
weather and high winds prevailed.
Again in the afternoon, McCarthy
met defeat, this time at the hands of
senior Dave Osler who tallied 2 /2
points for the Maize and Blue when
he shot a 78 to his opponent's 80.
BorFife was given a chance to
win his letter for the second year
when he replaced Simonds in the
lineup. Although "Hollywood Bob"
still continued to be off form, he was
good enough to beat Frank Jaronik,
3 to 0. Fife had an 82 while the
Orange and Blue ace had an 86.
Courtright, Smith Win
In the first of the best ball
matches, Courtright and Smith com-
bined to down the Illinois duo of
Holmstrom.and Jaronik, 21/2-%. Al-
though Smith had an 82 and Court-
right an 81, each man seemed to do
well on the hole that the other did
poorly and as a result the Maize and
Blue twosome was victorious despite
the fact that Holmstrom carded a 78.
SUMMARIES
Best Ball: Smith and Courtright
defeated Holmstrom and Jaronik,
212-1; Leidy and Osler defeated
Hayes and Reed, 2/2-.
Singles: Smith 74, defeated Holm
strom 81, 21-}; Courtright 73, de-
feated Hayes 75, 3-0; Leidy 77, de
feated Reed 84, 3-0: Osler 78, defeat-
ed McCarthy 80, 2-z/2; Fife 82, de
feated Jaronik 86; Simonds 7, de-
fcated McCarthy 78, 22-z.

considered an upset, but the Ohioan
came through again, He passed Ufer
45 yards from the finish line to fin-
ally finish five yards ahead of the
Wolverine ace. The winning time
didn't come near the record of past
time of either runner.
Michigans' only other threat to a
Big Ten title was Dave Matthews who
finished in third place in the 880 yard
run. Coming up fast in the last 100
yards, Campbell Kane, Indiana's sen-
sational runner, passed Bob Rehberg
of Illinois, the early leader, and Mat-
thews to win the title in 1:51.3.
Michigan's mile relay team fin-
ished in third place behind the Buck-
eyes and Indiana. The winning time
was 3:19.9.
Frank McCarthy took fourth in the
120 yard high hurdles despite a sore
leg. Ernie Leonardi, fourth in the
two mile run, George Ostroot, fifth
in the discus, and Al Thomas, third

in the 220 yard low hurdles, com-
pleted Michigan's winning in the
meet.
Captain Ralph Hammond proved
to be the star of the title winning
Buckeye team with two individual
wins and running a leg of the vic-
torious mile relay. He took the 100
yard dash, running the century in 10
flat. He also won the 220 yard dash
in :21.5.
Hammond's teammate Bob Wright,
however, can also claim some of these
honors for he took two firsts and a
third place in the runnings. He won
both the high and low hurdles and
fininshed the.century in third place.
Minnesota scored 241/2 points for
fourth place and Wisconsin piled up
only 20 to outpoint the Wolverines
for fifth,
Jack Defield of Minnesota and Bill
Williams of Wisconsin tied for first
in the pole vault for the sixth time
this season with a jump of 13 feet
6 inches.

Rule Changes
Permit Early,
Grid Practice
EVANSTON, Ill., May 16.--(P)-
The Big Ten faculty committee re-
laxed conference rules today to per-
mit earlier football practice this
year, and to extend the eligibility of
the player who suffers an injury im-
mediately after a season has started.
The old rule prohibiting football
practice prior to Sept. 10 was waived
for 1942, the committee deciding
that a school may start such prac-
tice three weeks before its first game,
or on the opening day of school, pro-
vided no practice was held before
Sept. 1.
Giving consideration to the player
who heretofore has lost a year of
his eligibility by even momentary
participation in a given season, the
committee adopted an amendment
providing that any student injured
in his first game of the season, or
injured in practice preparatory to
his second game will be considered as
not having played at all that season.
