In Great Britain
TpNDON, May 7.- (AP)- A crowd
*IZ more than 30,000, the majority of
them civilians, were expected to wit-
ess tomorrow the first public exhi-
Sitiorn of American football in Great
Britain during this war.
"rhe contest, between two United
15ttes. Army teams, will have all the
061or .and frills of American college
games. -Proceeds will go to the Pris-
,i rs War Fund of the British Red
fross. The opponents will be the
'7vightlng^Irish" (engineers) and the
'frimson Tide"- (field artillery).
;Four thousand top-pride $2 re-
served seats were sold a week in ad-
vanrce, indicating surprising interest
soccer-conscious Britishers in this
cfeavy armored" American sport.
-'t'e "Fighting Irish" are coached
by Capt.. Tom Nurnburger of Iron
#4ver former Michigan player, and
the "Crimson Tide" by Lt. E. H. Ken-
n of. Fall River, Ark.
The teams have met twice inform-
ally, each winning one game.

Thinclads Face Bucks, Spartans Here Today

Food for Thought
Three years ago a Michigan track team lost a heart-breaking 611/2 to
601/2 dual meet to Pittsburgh. There were nine different occasions when
the Wolverines could have won, but didn't. Then Coach Ken Doherty's
squad came back to win the Big Ten Outdoor Conference meet in 1940 with
the best team performance in history!
Last Saturday the Maize and Blue cindermen took the short end of a
tough 62-60 defeat from Illinois. There were several factors behind this
defeat-Michigan's first to the Illini in 12 years.
The first was Chuck Pinney's unfortunate accident in the 220-yard
low hurdles. Pinney tripped on the eighth hurdle and Michigan had to
be content with Jim Sear's third place instead of a possible first or a
sure second.
And then there is the poor race run by junior Johnny Roxborough. The
long-striding half-miler made the mistake of running too fast for the first
660 yards of his half-mile race, and, consequently, he tightened up in the
final lap. The result was his defeat by two Illini runners.
There is another important factor that few fans are aware of. .The
Wolerine quarter-milers, sprinters and hurdlers had not had one fast work-
out outdoors prior to the meet with Illinois last week. Inclement weather
had kept these men under wraps since the Indoor Conference except for
workouts in Yost Field House. And the lack of outdoor practice is not con-
ducive to championship performance.
So we come to the climax of our current parallel to 1940. The
Wolverines, defeated by Illinois, can be expected to bound back to take
the outdoor crown in a bitter battle with the Indians. The story will
unfold May 14-15 at Evanston in the Big Ten championships ...
GREAT DAY FOR FROSH::In losing to Illinois' track team last week
the Wolverines added three names to their list of 1943 Michigan lettermen-
Bill Matney, Bob Gardner and George Kraeger, all freshmen. Matney ran
on the mile relay team while Gardner and Kraeger competed in the shot
put and discus. Gardner also high jumped ..
HOMECOMING FOR DICK: It will be a "homecoming" appearance
for easy-going Dick Wakefield, rookie outfielder of the Detroit Tigers, who
swapped his Michigan uniform for $52,000 and a Detroit contract two years
ago. The game will be played here Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and Michigan
expects its biggest crowd in history .. .

Armstrong of Los Angeles, the only
triple champion in ring history,
knocked out Tommy Jessup of

two-fisted attack to the head and

Four Face Count
Fleet in Preakness
BALTIMORE, May 7.-()-- Four
three-year-olds got up enough nerve
today to elect to run against Count
Fleet in the 53rd Preakness tomor-
row- and in the case of at least one
of them, it took even more imagine
than nerve.

Stung by the narrow 62-60 defeat
at Illinois last week, a powerhouse
Michigan track and field team is ex-
pected to bound back this afternoon
at Ferry Field to a clear-cut victory
over Ohio State and Michigan
The meet will officially get under-
way at 2 p.m. with the 120-yard high
hurdles, although preliminaries in
the shot put and the pole vault will
have, started 15 minutes earlier.
Considerable interest is being cen-
tered around the 220-yard low hurdle
race which appears to have drawn
the best talent. Michigan will pit
Chuck Pinney, Chuck Marshall, Jack
Martin and Jim Sears against Ohio's
Dallas Dupre and Bob Geist and
Michigan State's Mel Buschman.
Dupre Has Edge
Dupre, apparently fully recovered
from a pulled tendon in the indoor
season, appears to have a slight edge
on the basis of his performance in a
dual meet with Penn State last week.
The flashy Buckeye speedstar
waltzed through the hurdle race in
24.3 seconds after having previously
won the 100-yard dash in 9.9 second,
the 220-yard dash in 21.5 seconds
and the running broad jump.
Pinney is not to be counted out,
however, and has almost an equal
chance of victory. Hehwas leading at
the eighth hurdle in the Illinois meet
when he fell. His practice runs dur-
ing the week have shown him to be
in top form.
Marshall a Dark Horse
The dark-horse entry will be the
Wolverines' Marshall, stationed on
campus with an Army unit. Marshall
captained the Butler University track
team in 1941, placing second in the
Butler Relays and fourth in the Na-
tional Collegiates that year. At
present he is more or less of an un-
known quantity. Ohio's Geist, the
Spartans' Buschman and Martin and
Sears will fight it out for the fourth
Dupre's superiority in the sprints
should give the Buckeyes important
points, although Len Alkon may sur-
prise the Ohio ace in. one or both
events. Paul Hatfield of Ohio, the
Spartains' Bob McCarthy and Michi-
gan's Don Sternisha and Jim Pierce
are also competing.
Michigan's Captain Dave Mat-
thews, Ross Hume and Dick Barnard
will face Michigan State's captain
and star, Bill Scott, in the mile which
should be an interesting race. Ohio's
Tom White and Warren Jones may
break into the point column.
Allindications point to a close bat-
tle between Bob Ufer, Maize and Blue
quarter-mile king, and the Spartans'
Dale Kaulitz. Ufer will be attempting
to erase the sting of his defeat at
Illinois by Bob Kelley. Kaulitz has

It looks like an all-Michigan fin-
ish in the 880-yard run with Mat-
thews, John Roxborough and Art Up-
ton running for the Wolverines, al-
though Ohio's Jones may surprise.
Michigan State's John Liggett is the
Spartans' best entry. And the same
goes for the two-mile with Bob and
Ross Hume and Ernie Leonardi
fighting it out with Scott.
Michigan's crack mile relay team
of Willie Glas, Bill Matney, Ufer and
either Upton or Sternisha should
have little trouble in winning.

Golfers Seek Second Triumph
Over Spartans Today at Lansing

As a kind of prelude to the matches
to come with Ohio State, and Illinois,
and finally the battle for the con-
ference title, Michigan's golf team
will leave today to play Michigan
State, the team it defeated here two
weeks ago, 1212-21.
Members of the Wolverine squad
going to East Lansing to meet the
Spartans especially want victory to-
day after their close loss to North-
western last week. They consider the
match with Michigan State another
opportunity at play in competition,
and hope to get in tune for Monday's
meet here with Ohio State.
Coach Ben Van Alstyne's Spartan
team has looked potentially good
all year, but has failed to show up
as well as expected in competitive
matches. Here at Ann Arbor two
weeks ago the State team was quite
soundly trumped by Wolverine links-
men, but were strong enough to de-
feat Notre Dame by one point, 7-6.
The meet on Saturday may not be

any pushover for the Maize and
Blue, especially if the East Lansing
lads have had more opportunity to
Nine men will make the trip to
Michigan State. Captain Ben Smith,
Bob Fife, Bill Ludolph, "Bonny" Bon-
isteel, Phil Marcellus, Duncan Noble,
Doug Beath, Paul O'Hlara, and Bob
Welling, will go. John Leidy, an-
nounced originally as going, will stay
here because of illness.
Even in yesterday's downpour most
of the squad was out practicing. The
team has plenty of spirit, and wants
to show its best possible 'scores in
the three matches, with State today,
Ohio State Monday, and llinois next
week-end, that precede the Big Ten
matches at Tam O'Shanter.
Coach Courtright has not an-
nounced the five men wh6 will repre-
sent Michigan in the battle for con-
ference honors. Much will depend
on the showing 'of team members at
East Lansing today, and here against
the Buckeyes Monday.
