Michigan captain Jinx Johnson bat-
tted three sets in their match be-
fore Theimer took the verdict, 7-5,
2-6; 8-4.
In the only other match of the day

Nine To Meet
Purdue Today
in T itle fTest
Fighting for a mathematical
chance to retain its Big Ten title,
Michigan's baseball team will open a
two game series against Purdue to-
day at Lafayette.
With two less Conference games
on their schedule than their chief
rival, Wisconsin, the Wolverines will
have to sweep this.series- with the
Boilermakers to remain in the run-
ning against the Badgers. The Wis-
consin crew, like Michigan, has lost
only one league contest this season.
Purdue's First Game
The Boilermakers haven't played
any Conference game so far this sea-
son and will be something of a sur-
prise package when they take the
field against the Maize and Blue.
Aside from three veterans, and a lone
sophomore, the Purdue squad is made
up entirely of freshmen and service
Coach Ray Fisher took five hurlers
with him on this trip, probably as a
safeguard against unexpected Purdue
power. He plans to start Pro Boim
in today's tilt and will send Mickey
Fishman to the mound in the second
game, tomorrow.
Boim suffered his second defeat of
the season against Western Michi-
gan Tuesday. Ed Misselhorn, one of
the Boilermaker veterans, will be on
the hill against the Wolverines in
today's game.

'M' To Play
Detroit for
First Time
Michigan's nine will oppose the
Detroit Tigers for the first time in
history this coming Tuesday night
when the two teams will play an
exhibition game on the Ferry Field
For the Wolverines, it will be the
highlight of the season, and it is
expected that an overflow crowd will
view the twilight game which starts
at 6:30. To rookie Dick Wakefield,
sensational Tiger outfielder, it will
be his first homecoming appearance
since he auctioned off his services to
Detroit two years ago for $52,000.
Wakefield was the slugging sensa-
tion of the Conference in 1941, his
sophomore year, when the Bengals
outbid every other major league club
for his signature. After playing with
Winston-Salem his first year, the
former Wolverine went with Beau-
mont in the Texas League where he
copped the batting crown and was
voted the loop's outstanding player
Regent To Throw Out First Ball
As a feature of the brief pre-game
ceremonies Regent Edmund C.
Shields will throw out the first ball.
Shields was a member of the Michi-
gan teams of 1895-6 which faced De-
troit's professional predecessors to
the Tigers.
Pro Boim will undoubtedly be
Coach Ray Fisher's choice for the
starting pitching assignment against
the Bengals, while senior Mickey
Fishman and lefty Don Smith will
be held in reserve. Manager Steve
O'Neill has named Roy Henshaw as
his probable starter on the mound.
Preceding Tuesday's tilt, the Maize
and Blue squad will face Grosse Ile
in another twilight contest. The
starting time for this game, the first
of a home-and-home series with the
sailors, has been set for 6:30. Dick
Drury, local Ann Arbor boy, who
has been looking very good on the
mound in his brief appearances, will
probably get the starting call for the
Golf Team To
Play Spartans
Ten men, composing the Michigan
squad that is to face Michigan State
this Saturday, will journey tomorrow
to East Lansing to play the Spartans
in the second inter-team matches
with the Wolverines.
Captain Ben Smith, Bob Fife, John
Leidy, Bill Ludolph, "Bonny" Boni-
steel, Phil Marcellus, Duncan Noble,
Doug Beath, Paul O'Hara, and Bob
Welling will probably make the trip
this week-end. Each of these fel-
lows played against State in the
matches here two weeks ago when
Michigan defeated the Spartans
Coach Ray Courtright has not an-
nounced the squad that will play in
the Conference matches at Tam
O'Shanter in Chicago the 17th and
18th of May. "Corky" has said, how-
eer, that individual play in both the
Michigan State and Ohio State
matches will help to decide what five
men will make the trip. "Those who
do the most hard work and practice
most before the Big Ten meet will
probably make the trip," said Court-

Thinclads Are
Favorites for
3-Way Meet
Although Michigan is a top-heavy
favorite in the triangular meet with
Ohio State and Michigan State here
Saturday afternoon, some interesting
three-way competition is expected in
the 440-yard and mile events.
In "Hose-Ncse" Bob Ufer Michigan
has the holder of the National and
Conference indoor quarter-mile rec-
ords. Unbeatable indoors, the lean-
legged Wolverine has never been the
same runner on the outdoor tracks.
Owen Holds Edge on Ufer
Ohio State's Russ Owen has been
able to beat Ufer consistently out-
doors, and last Saturday Illini's Bob
Kelley turned the trick at Cham-

Refreshments will be sold by
members of the "M" Club Satur-
day at the track meet between
Michigan, Ohio, and Michigan
State. As you watch your favorite
track stars in action you will be
able to enjoy ice-cold pop and
candy. The salesmen will be wear-
ing either "M" hats or sweaters.
Watch for them.
paign with a 0:48.9 quarter. Owen
holds the outdoor 440-yard title and
will be the Buckeyes' top entrant in
that event.
A third runner who must be con-
sidered is Michigan State's Dale
Kaulitz. He can be counted on to
run under 0:50.0 outdoors which
promises to make this event the
most outstanding of the meet.
Of almost equal interest is the
promised battle in the mile between
the Spartans' crack distance runner,
Captain Bill Scott, and Michigan's
Captain Dave Matthews. Scott has
broken 4:15 indoors, while Matthews
has run about 4:30.
Ross Hume Possible Mile Winner
Last winter in an indoor meet here
Matthews scored a surprise victory
over Scott and will be out to make it
two straight. Wolverine Ross Hume
who beat Matthews in the Indoor
Conference mile and in the outdoor
meet with Illinois last week, may
surprise with another triumph. Ross
ran a 4:19 mile, the fastest he has
run at this distance.
The meet opens at 2 p.m. with the
mile race. Shot put and pole vault
events are scheduled to get underway
at 1:45 p.m.
On the basis of past performances
Michigan is a heavy favorite to win
this one. During the indoor season
the Wolverines beat Ohio State 751/
to 28 and topped the Spartans 65 to

Don Choate Sets
Record at PEM
Obstacle Course
It took a young lad from the
ranks of the University PEM class-
es to crack the record set by an
Army man on the new 350-yard ob-
stacle course at Ferry Field.
Don Choate, '43Arch of Green-
ville, was just another student tak-
ing PEM yesterday morning when

section six met for class. Before
class was over he was a hero.
Choate breezed through the ob-
stacle course, probably the tough-
est in the country, in 1:35.3 to
smash the long-standing record of
1:42. Average PEM time ranges
around 2:30.
Entries for the IM track, tennis
and golf meets to be held next
weeK will be received in the IM
building. Entries should be made
this week.
