Coeds Entertain
soldiers Today
Freshman Project Wil Offer
Dancing, Games at Open House
All soldiers stationed on campus
are invited to the Open House, which
will be held tonight in the League.
and is sponsored by the Freshman
Project. The men can bring their
dates, or they can come stag, for
there will be plenty of hostesses on
hand to entertain them.
Bridge, bingo and other games will
be played by those who do not wish
to dance, and as an added attraction,
the Latin American Society will lead
the dancers in the conga line and
teach the tango and rhumba.
The Open House will be held in
the Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids
rooms, and the South American
dancers will be in the ballroom, so
that there will be no music mix-up.
For those couples who want a
quiet evening of conversation, there
will be the League Lobby, where
classical music will be played.
Tonight's Open House is another
in the series given by the women of
the freshman class who, in their
project for this year, have devoted
their time to entertaining the mem-
bers of our armed forces.
Hillel To Hold
Dance Today
Hillel's annual spring dance will
be held from 9 p.m. to midnight to-
day at the Foundation.
Co-chairmen for the affair are
Charlotte Kaufman, '43, and Grace
Freudberg, '45. Other members of
the committee are Shirley Levin, '46,
Joyce Seigan, '46, Maxine Hanchrow,
'44, and Rita Hyman, '44.
A group of soldiers have been in-
vited from Fort Custer. Both sol-
diers and civilians are welcome. Re-
freshments will be served.
Club Invites All
Coeds To Ride
This Afternoon
The University Woman's Riding
Club is offering an opportunity for
all women on campus seeking some
good exercise and a lot of fun, to ride
with the regular members at 1 p.m.
Meeting in front of Barbour Gym
every Saturday, they then go out to
a local stable and ride for an hour
and a half on the numerous bridle
paths along the river. Special rates
which are a considerable cut in the
usual1price are offered to the club.
Kit Kammeraad, '44, manager of
the club, says that women do not
have to be good riders or have spe-
cial clothes to ride with the club.
The only necessity is the desire to
have a lot of fun riding with a con-
genial group of women.
"Even if you are not interested in
joining the club, but would like to
ride today, you are invited to come
along," Miss Kammeraad added. The'
group will return in plenty of time
to participate in the "Fun, Fitness
Field Day."
Mortar Board Elects
Next Year's Officers
Barbara Smith, '44, was elected to
the presidency of Mortar Board, sen-
ior women's honorary society, at the

meeting held yesterday afternoon.
Other junior women elected to fill
offices for next year include Carol
Grede, vice-president; Phyllis Pres-
ent, secretary; Frances Vyn, treas-
urer, and Helen Willcox, editor.

Linksmen Meet
Wildcats Today
A Evanistoi
The outcome of today's golf match
between Michigan and Northwestern
at Tam O'Shanter Country Club will
probably go a long way toward deter-
mining the Big Ten championship
of the 1943 season.
The Wolverines, defending cham-
pions, consider the Wildcats one of
the toughest Conference opponents
they will face all year. Three of the
Northwestern linksmen are veterans
of last year's team which was good
enough to place third in the National
Inter-collegiate Championships.
Three freshmen have added their
strength to the squad that Michigan
faces today. Jack Duers, Bob Alex-
ander and Warren Williamson have
already played in matches, and were
a part of the Wildcats' team that has
beaten Chicago and Illinois Tech.
Northwestern would like very much
to win the match today, not only for
the pleasure of defeating the 1942
Conference winners, but to make a
successful field day for their univer-
sity. The Wildcats, besides enter-
taining the Wolverine golf team,
have tennis, track, baseball and foot-
ball events scheduled for the day.
There will be an admission charge
of one dollar to all the events. All
the receipts from any of the con-
tests will be turned over to the Red
Major Lea cre
WASHINGTON, April 30.- (/P)-
Emil (Dutch) Leonard, veteran
knuckleball pitcher who was not
much help to Washington last year
because of a broken leg, matched his
1942 won mark today when he hurled
the Senators to a 2 to 1 10-inning
victory over the New York Yankees.
In chalking up his second victory
of the season, Leonard outpointed
Hank Borowy in a mound duel that
was decided when Ellis Clary, Sena-
tors' third baseman, led off the tenth
with a double. After Gene Moore
had flied out, Stan Spence was inten-
tionally passed and then Bob John-
son crashed through with the game-
winning single.

Weirmen . Favorites
To Take Third Victory
With two wins and two losses in
their matches to date, Michigan's
tennis team will try to get over the
.500 mark today when they play host
to the netters from Kalamazoo in a
match starting at 2:30 p.m. on the
Ferry Field courts.
The Wolverines, with the possible
exception of the man playing number
one, are expected to have little
trouble in taking their second
straight match against opponents
from Kalamazoo. Tuesday they de-
feated Western Michigan, 8-1.
Coach LeRoy Weir plans to start
almost the same singles lineup that
he had used against the Broncos.
He might, however, make switchesl
in his doubles combinations, but isn't
sure of them as yet.
Captain Jinx Johnson will prob-
ably start at his accustomed number
one spot again. Johnson, making the
jump from number six to one in one
season, has only been conquered in
one singles and one doubles match"
this year. Freshman Roger Lewis will
open in the second bracket-with Roy
Bradley a probable starter at three.
Fred Wellington will probably start
at four, Roy Boucher at five, and
Fred Sleator at six.


Val-sit) Sevlks Sev4en1th
Straight; Cain To Hurl
Michigan's nine will be seeking its
seventh straight victory this after-
noon when they travel to Ypsilanti to
play Michigan Normal in the final
game of a home-and-home series.,
Coach Ray Fisher expects to use
Bill Cain as the starting pitcher for
the varsity. Dick Savage and Mickey
Fishman will also see action since
they both have had little chance to
work on the mound this past week.
The Hurons will probably start either
Dick Gabriel or Charlie Greig.
The two teams niet here a week
ago last Thursday when the Wolver-
ines shut out Normal, 8 to 0. -on three
hit pitching from five Maize and
Blue hurlers. Cain allowed two of
the safeties in the two innings that
he worked, while Savage allowed the
other one in the same number of
Michigan will probably field the
same team that started against the
Illini last week-end. If the varsity
builds up a sizeable lead, Coach Fish-
er will undoubtedly put in several of
his subs to give them a little more
experience. Mike Farnyk and Bob
Nussbaumer, who each got an extra
base hit against Western Michigan
Thursday, are sure to see action.
Charlie Ketterer, who batted one for
two and fielded seven chances flaw-
lessly against the Broncos, will un-
doubtedly play also.

When Michigan's Wolverines clash
with Illinois thisafternoon at Cham-
paign in the first Big Ten Outdoor
Conference they will face a crew of
cindermen who brought 26 medals
back from the Drake Relays.
The Illini delegation to Drake's
games, nine strong, W'on five trophies
for placing first in five relays and
took third in a sixth.
Fresh from their Drake triumphs
are Bill Beile, Marce Gonzales, War-
ren Goodell, Clarence Dunn, Evon
Greanias, Bob Kelley, Herb Matter,
Bob Seib and Leroy Vranek.
Others who will appear against
Coach Ken Doherty's Wolverines are
Charles Schroeder, sprints; Dick Ab-
bott, hurdles; Herb Bekermeier, hur-
dles; Tom Fullerton and Ken Brown,
discus; Bob Phelps, pole vault, John-
ny Camp and Glenn Ellyn, high
jump; James Meek, broad jump.
Heading Michigan's invading dele-
gation will be Captain Dave Mat-
thews, one of the Conference's out-
standing half milers, who will com-
pete in the mile event with Ross
Hume, Big Ten champion at that
distance. Matthews is running out
of his event to give the Maize and
Blue the desired balance in the dis-
Interest is centered on the quarter-
mile race in which Bob Ufer, na-
tional indoor champion, will face Il-
lini's Bob Kelley who hit a :0.49.2
anchor leg on the mile relay at last
week's Drake Relays. Ufer did equal-
ly well on a soft track at the Penn
Relays, so the result should be inter-
Michigan is all set to control the
half-mile event with Johnny Rox-
borough, Conference 880-yard king,
running with mates Matthews and
Ross Hume. The latter two will have
only a short rest after the mile.
A number of Wolverine freshmen
will be making their Big Ten debuts.
Coach Doherty has entered Dons
Sternish in the sprints after his fav-
orable showing recent time trials.
And quarter-miler Bill Matney will
run a leg on the Maize and Blue mile
relay team.
Wolverine freshman in the field
events will be headed by George
Fraeger and Bob Gardner, both of
whom are entered in the shot put
and discus.

Count Fleet Is 1-*2 Favorite in Today




LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 30.-(P)-
This strangest of all Kentucky Der-
bies came up with a new wacky
wrinkle today as Count Fleet and 11
other three-year-olds were entered to
run the mile and a quarter tomorrow
for a necklace of roses worth $60,725.
Topping off such developments as
a shadow of doubt surrounding the
highly regarded Ocean Wave's chan-
ces of getting to the post and Derby-
town almost weirdly empty of the
usual mobs of noisy, jostling out-of-
town celebrants, the new touch of
confusion popped up today when a
"mysterious" entry blank showed up
and then had to be "lost" again.
This was a blank made out in the
name of Seven Hearts, the horse with
the ailing foot from the barn of
J. Graham Brown, local hotel man.
When the entry box closed, only 12
horses were supposed to be nom-
inated to start in the big waltz at
traditional Churchill Downs at 5:30

p.m. (C.W.T.) tomorrow. Then, in
the draw for post positions, the slip
for "Mr. Double-and-Redouble" was
discovered and after he drew a lane
it was withdrawn again because his
trainer didn't know a thing about it.
Under its pledge to the war effort
to have only fans from greater Louis-
ville in for this year's shindig, the
'Downs' customary jam session of
85,000 or 90,000 cash customers will
be sliced almost in half.
Naturally, it is almost unanimously
agreed that Count Fleet, a tall, rangy
brown lightning streak carrying the
canary and black silks of Mrs. John'
D. Hertz of the Chicago U-Drive and
Yellow Taxicab Hertzes, is a simple
cake-walk for the big pot.
World-record maker at two, the
Hertz Hurricane was installed as the
shortest priced future-book favorite
in all Derby history, and he has lived
up to that ranking in his two starts

so far this spring, romping to two
triumphs at Jamaica-one of them
the Wood Memorial-as easily as
eating his oats. The result has been
that his odds have dropped almost
weekly, until they've hit rock-bottom
1 to 2 right now.
Up to two weeks ago, there wasn't
even an arm - chair handicapper
brave enough to pick against him for
tomorrow's May Day brawl, but in
the past 11 days, Ocean Wave has
scored two red-hot wins right here
on the Derby home grounds in the
Blue Grass Stakes and the Derby
Trial Mile. So, the "knock down the
favorite" marching and chowder club
has been holding meetings and com-

ing to the conclusion that maybe the
Wave can sink the Fleet yet.
Aside from the Wave and the Fleet -
only four others in the list of a dozen
are even given a look-in. These four
are Blue Swords, a husky son of Blue
Larkspur carrying the hopes of Allen
T. Simmons, Akron (Ohio) radio sta-
tion operator; Slide Rule, one of the
two "bombers" from the barn of
W. E. Boeing, the Seattle Flying For-
tress man; Gold Shower, a chunky
charger owned by Mrs. Vera S. Bragg
of Greenwich, Conn., and Amber
Light, from the barn of Charles T.
Fisher, the Detroit automobile body
builder. The others in the field fig-
ure to be out ,just for the air.
