Fishman, Smith, Boim, Drury and
Swanson; Almany, Biddle and Lor-
Thinclads Meet
Spartans, OSU
Here Saturday
Michigan's title-bound Wolverine
trackmen will make their only home
appearance of the 1943 indoor cam-
paign Saturday afternoon at Ferry
Field in a triangular meet with Ohio
State and Michigan State.
The Maize and Blue cindermen,
headed by Captain Dave Matthews,
will be favored to take top honors
with the Buckeyes nosing out State
for second place.
Michigan, stung by the 62-60 de-
feat at Champaign last Saturday
against a strong Illini outfit, is ex-
pected to bound back and should not
have too much trouble with a Buck-
eye squad that has been hard hit by
Uncle Sam's demands.
State Should Be Easy
Michigan State, on the other hand,
doesn't expect to press hard since
both the Wolverines and Buckeyes
administered one-sided defeats to
State indoors last winter. Added to
that is the loss of .14' of Coach Karl
Schlademan's trackmen to the armed
The Spartans are relying on two
of their topnotch performers, Cap-
tain Bill Scott and Jim Milne, for
first-place wins. Scott, a senior from
Buffalo, galloped under the 4:15 mark
indoors this past winter and has
shown a great deal of form in out-
door workouts.
Milne, the lad -who removes one
shoe when high jumping, is almost
sure of a first even though off form.
The long-legged Detroiter who was
one of the nation's five best jumpers
a year ago, has not been up to form
this season. He failed to place in the
Drake Relays this spring, but neither
Michigan nor Ohio State has a man
to press him.
Spartans Have Other Winners
Schladeifan's other performers
who should come in for points, are
Bob McCarthy, sprints; Mel Busch-
man, hurdles; Jerry Page, two miles;
Dale Kaulitz, quarter-mile; and Bill
Roberts, pole vault.
Saturday's meet will be the only
opportunity Wolverine fans will have
to see their Big Ten indoor cham-
pions in action. The pole vault and
shot put events are scheduled for
1:45 p.m. with the running events
slated for 2 o'clock.
Tigers Defeat Browns
ST. LOUIS, May 4.-()-The De-
troit Tigers gained their third suc-
cessiv*' victory over the St. Louis
Browns by stamping out late threats
on the relief pitching of Paul (Dizzy)
Trout today to take the opener of a
three-game series, 4 to 3.
There will be a meeting of the
M-Club tomorrow night at eight
o'clock in the Union. All letter
men urged to attend.
-Julie Franks, President
Entries for the annual IM ten-
nis meet to be held next week will
be taken in the IM Building.
Entries for the IM track meet
to be held next week will be taken
in the IM Building.

A squad of seven Wolverine netters,
including Captain Jinx Johnson,
Roger Lewis, RQy Bradley, Fred Wel-
lington, Roy Boucher, Fred Sleator,,
and Merle Brown, leave today for
Chicago, where they will engage Chi-
cago, Ohio State, and Northwestern
on successive days.
These three meets will be an acid
test for the Michigan raequet wield-
ers and on the basis of these week-
end performances, it will behmuch
easier to predict Michigan's chances
in the Western Conference Meet at
Northwestern May 13, 14, 15.
Netters Look Well in Victorv
The home team looked fairly im-
pressive in their 7-2 conquest over
the Kalamazoo College, team on Sat-
urday, May 1. However, it must be
noted that the Kalamazoo squad was
comparatively weak, and it was dif-
ficult to determine the actual
strength of the 1943 netters. The
present standing of the team, is three
wins and two losses.
Captain Jinx Johnson by virtue of
his 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 triumph over Vic
Soukup, Kalamazoo's top man,
proved that he is of championship
calibre. Soukup is a slashing, driving
performer and it was only Johnson's
keen court strategy and steady play

that enabled him to whip his aggres-
sive opponent.
In the number two singles match
Roger Lewis really swung into form
as he decisively trounced Learman
of Kalamazoo 6-3, 6-3. However,
Lewis will have to be at the top of
his game if he wants to make a
creditable showing in the Western
Conference Meet. One thing that
stands in Lewis' favor is the fact
that he has had much experience at
tournament tennis and the glamour
of the Big Ten Meet should not be
new to him. Roy Bradley, Michigan's
number three man was very impres-
sive in his 6-0, 6-1, conquest over
Williams. He was on the offensive
throughout the entire match and he
continually won his points with a
well executed overhead smash and
an effective net game.
Wellington Loses Match
Fred Wellington was the .lone
Maize and Blue netter who dropped
his singles encounter. It seems as
though Wellington is having a great
deal of difficulty acclimating himself
to outside playing conditions, but
Coach Weir is confident that Fred,
with a little more practice, will show
the kind of tennis that he is capable
of playing.
Michigan's number five and six

men, Fred Sleal or :and Merle Brown,
won their matches 'ry easily. This
was Brown's fire List e<of singles
competition and he made a very
auspicious beginning Siaor, taking
advantage of his op wents weak
backhand, oast ; - :m -y d2, 6-2
Lewis, 1' (lin- ton I se ,
In the top douis malhi of the
day, the Michigan iinubo one duo of
Lewis and vellinton dropped a
thrilling three setter to the Kalama-
zoo combinlai(on of Scukup and
Staake. The scores were 6-4, 5-7, 6-2.
Michigan's second combination of
Johnson and B)radly p unded out a
convincing 6-1, (-0 victory over Wil-
liams and Riepna, 'They had things

tire match and it was an extremely

-ntramural Sport Shots

Even though Ann Arbon has been
favored by some very unusual
weather, Intramural baseball is still
going strong.
The residence halls are in the
midst of their finals and winner will
face the titlists of the fraternity
league. The fraternities will begin
their playoffs within the next few
weeks and it is expected that the
"all-school championship" will be
held a couple of days before finals.
The turnout for this sport has been
quite remarkable despite the war,
although the number of teams that
did not send in their entries number-
ed almost 80: The professional fra-
ternities, independents, co-opera-
tives, and faculty teams were among
those that did not send any entries
in. All in all, a grand total of 28
nines are playing IM ball this semes-
Riskey Still Pleased
Earl Riskey thesdirector of the IM
sports program, when asked what
he thought about the small number
of teams competing said, "I feel that
the, IM program is a success in spite
of the small turnout mainly because
many of the students are in the re-
serves, and I felt that they would be
too busy with their school work to be
able to spend any time with intra-
murals. It is much better than I had
hoped for."
'Besides the weather, a lack of um-
pires to officiate at the games and a
lack of men to fix and mark the play-
ing fields have helped to keep the
fellows from playing ball. As a re-

suit of these two catastrophies the
teams have been forced to postpone
quite a few of their games-although
some have been played with one of
the fellows umpiring while his side
was at bat and the other team doing
the same, when they took their
turn at the plate.
Wenley Had Good Season
s Wenley House, which ruled as one
of the pre-season favorites in the
residence hall league and fulfilled
these predictions in not tasting de-
feat during the regular season was
defeated in the finals of the resi-
dence halls championship.
Going into the fifth inning Wen-
ley was leading 3 to 1 and then the
fire-works started. Lloyd scored four
runs which proved to be the winning
markers and Lloyd went on to win
with the final score of 5 to 3. If
Lloyd, show the form that they
showed last night they will stand an
excellent chance against the win-
ners of the fraternity league in the
"All-school championship."
Four Leaders in Fraternity League
In the fraternity league one of
the teams that will be battling
among the leaders for the champion-
ship is the Sigma Alpha Mu nine.
Zeta Beta Tau, Sigma Nu and Sigma
Chi will also be among those teams
in the fight to be the fraternity rep-
resentative against Lloyd House.
Something that really stands out
in this season's games is that there
aren't as many sluggers left on the
teams as there were last year.
