for low medalist honors, faltered,
and came in with a 156 total.
Illinois, with two players among
the top four, rested in fifth place in
tallying 628. Holmstrom carded 76
in the forenoon and came back with
a par 72 in the afternoon round to
finish in fourth place. It was Illini
Jim McCarthy, however, who proviaed
the biggest surprise of the day when
he finished with a 147 total to tie
for second place for low medal hon-
ors. Up until today McCarthy had
not won his letter because he has
been hampered by illness,
In taking over first place, Michi-
gan's other four entries did right
well for themselves. Capt. John Lei-
dy tallied scores of 78 and 76 for a
154 total. In the morning Leidy was
out in 40 and came back in 38, while
his afternoon round of 38-38-76 was
one of the best he has had all year.
Bill Courtright and Dave Osler each
had 156 strokes. Bill carded 77 in
the morning and then finished with
79, while Dave's scores were just th'e
reverse. Chan Simonds, the fifth
Wolverine (whose score does not
count) shot 40 on each nine in both
rounds for a 160 total.
Indiana, Purdue, and Chicago fin-
ished in that order behind fifth place'
Illinois, while Iowa did not enter a
team.
With Illinois, who has won the
crown the last two years, and North-
western practically out of the tourna-
ment, it looks like a dogfight between
Michigan and the Scarlet and Gray
aggregation, with Minnesota given
a slight chance to squeeze through.
The Wolverines probably have the
most well-balanced team of the
group, while Ohio State has three
men among the first seven medalists.
Behind Buckeyes Krisko and Lorms
is Billy Gilbert, who won the Con-
ference crown two years ago. Gilbert
had trouble in keeping on the fair-
ways yesterday, in addition to hav-
ing difficulty with his putting, con-
sequently he carded a 77-76-153
which is definitely not up to his usual
standa rd.-
The Conference Meet will be con-
cluded at the University course to-
day when the 43 contestants will play
another 36 holes, one round in the
morning and the last one in the
afternoon.

Nine Takes Double Win
From Chicago, 161, 3-1

Cain Hurls Three-Hitter In
Combine To Outpitch
(Continued from Page 1)
their best ball in the second tilt be-
cause Rodney Briggs, Chicago hurl-
er, held them to, five scattered hits.
The combination of Savage and
Fishman was a little too much for
Briggs to match, however.
Like Cain, Dick also made his de-
but in Conference competition to-
day. The sophomore righthander
turned in a fine job as he limited
Chicago batters to three hits and
the lone run of the ball game in the
five innings he worked. Fishman,
who relieved Savage, had the Maroons
eating out of his hands and was
never seriously in trouble.
Whitey Holman Scores
In the second game the Wolverines
picked up their first run right away
when Whitey Holman scored on Don
Robinson's single.
The Varsity picked up their other
two runs of the nightcap in the third
when heavy hitting Bud Chamber-
lain socked a double, scoring Holman
and Dave Nelspn.
In the first contest the Wolverines
seemed to gain momentum as the
game rolled along because they
scored 13 runs in the last five in-
nings.

old owl, crossed up Maroon infielders
time and again by having the Wol-
verine batters bunt nearly one fourth
of the time. When the Chicago in-
ner cordon became bunt conscious
and started charging in on every
pitch, Fisher ordered the boys to
hit away with the result that Chicago
infielders were nearly always out of
position when a ball was hit their
way.
Varsity Runs Wild
The Michigan base runners stole at
will against Chuck Miller, Maroon
catcher. Miller's arm was as weak
as the proverbial Sunday school
punch as he allowed Dave Nelson to
steal four bases in the first game
alone.
The sixth and seventh innings were
the big ones for the Wolverines in
the first game as they tallied four
runs in each frame.
Big guns in the Varsity's 16 run
barrage were Bill Cartmill and Paul
White. The "Wheel" helped" him-
self to three lusty doubles in five
times at bat while Paul snapped out
of his batting slump with four hits
in six times at the plate.
Cain would have had a shut out
except for Bob Stenberg, who made
a couple of costly fielding misplays
in the sixth inning. The little fel-
low more than made up for this,
however, by turning in several fine
fielding plays.

Johnson To Be
TennisCaptain
Jinx Receives UnaITnimois
Vote; Eight Get Letters
Alden Johnson, for two years the
most consistent winner on the team,
was yesterday unanimously elected
by his teammates to succeed Co-Cap-
tains Lawton Hammett and Wayne
Stille as the new Wolverine tennis
captain.
Known affectionately to his team-
mates as 'Jinx,' 'Gringo' and 'The
Greaser', Johnson was the logical
choice for other reasons than the
fact that he was the only eligible
regular. Over a two year span Jinx!
won twenty-five consecutive matches,
including a Conference champion-
ship, before a windy day and a tough
opponent combined to defeat him
Thursday.
One of the hardest fighters on the
team, Johnson would have given ev-
ery one of those 25 victories to have
won that one crucial match with Donj
Burst and when he got his chance
in the doubles he came back beauti-
fully to win the number three cham-
pionship with Gerry Schaflander.
A Phi Delt and hailing from Grand
Rapids, Jinx, true to form, doesn't
want to rest on his laurels next year
but wants to play in as high a bracket
as his skill will allow him.
Other letter winners announced by
Coach Weir are Hammett, Stille, Jim
Porter, Schaflander, Tom Gamon,
Tom Bourquin and Fred Wellington.
Reserve awards were given Bob
Brewer and Bob Mattews.

smart" in surmounting the obstacles
which confront us.
The All-Year trophy for the high
point winner in all sports, originally
conceded to Williams a few days ago,
was not presented because of a dis-
crepancy in the scoring system
which, when figured on two different
bases, also places Fletcher Hall in
first place. This will be decided in
the next few days when representa-
tives of both houses along with I-M
officials will confer with Litzenburg.
Team Awards Given
Plaques and medals for team
championships were distributed as

Give 1rosb Net Awards
Looking forward to another suc-
cessful season next year, Coach Leroy
Weir yesterday announced the 1945
freshman numeral winners. Six
freshmen and one sophomore, a
transfer student, make up this year-
ling squad which Coach Weir calls
"the best in the last four yp '"
Most of the players were either
state high school champs or runners-
up, and Fleetwood McCoy won his
numerals at the University of North-
western last year.
Winners of the awards were: Bill
Honey of Kalamazoo; McCoy, Ft.
Custer; Bill Mikulich, Traunik; Ger-
ry Mullaney, Milwaukee, Wis.; Dave
Post, Schenectady, N.Y.; Ed Fisher,
Milwaukee, Wis.; and Roy Boucher,
Catasauqua, Penn.

In addition to presenting the
awards, Mr. Litzenburg called on
Charles Peake of the English depart-
ment, Chief Residence Advisor of the
West Quad, to challenge the winners
of the baseball title, Williams House,
to the annual game with a picked
team of faculty men. The games will
be a best of three series to be played
tonight and tomorrow night at 7:30
on the diamond just south of Yost
Field House.
Rams Top 610 Club
The Intramural softball champion-
ship came to a close yesterday when
the Rams defeated the 610 Club 10-5
for the independent crown. The skies
were dreary, and part of the game
was played in the rain, but all this
did not prevent the Rams from com-
ing from behind, three times, to cop
the title.
Bob Kolesar was the spark that
enabled the Rams to bowl over the
610 boys, as he took off his shirt and
pitched a very fine game. His job
was not easy because the Rams
played only eight men against their
opponents' ten.
All the boys were hitting well and
extra base knocks were by no means
uncommon.

Eflect Matthews
TrackCaptain
Junior Star Forsook Pool
For Cinderpath Fame
David O. Matthews, '43Ed, of Royal
Oak, was elected captain of the 1942-
43 Michigan track squad at a dinner
Sunday night in the Michigan Union.
Matthews closed the regular sea-
son this weekend by placing third in
the half-mile at the Big Ten outdoor
track meet in Evanston, Ill., which
was won by a powerful Ohio State
team.
The election to the captaincy cli-
maxes the career of Matthews who
almost became a swimmer under
Matt Mann. In high school Dave
went in for swimming, and he hoped
to continue his career at Michigan.
Only at the insistence of his brother
did he go out for track in his senior
year in high school, and even though.
he placed third in the state 440 yard
dash, he still devoted his time to
swimming. Coach Ken Doherty dis-
covered Matthews, however; and
Dave went out for track during his
sophomore year.
This year Matthews placed fourth
in the conference indoor meet and
turned in the best half-mile time for
the Varsity this year in addition to
his previously mentioned third last
Saturday.
Varsity lettermen and point-win-
ners attended the track squad dinner
at which Coach Ken Doherty, Frosh
Coach Chester Stackhouse, and Prof.
Phil Diamond were honor guests.
Captain Al Piel was the master of
ceremonies.
Trackmen presented a traveling
kit to Doherty and heard short talks
by the three honor' guests.

ference-not individual members-to
the Army and Navy funds.
Increased expenses, however, were
foreseen because of the support to
vast programs of physical fitness
courses.
The plan, which Maj. John L.
Griffith, athletic commissioner,
termed a climax to the Big Ten's
preparedness program built up since
the last war, had wide approval.
