Golfers Point Toward
Victory over Buckeyes
The Wolverine linksmen finally got
a break in the weather yesterday, and
settled down in preparation for a
return match with Ohio State here
The golfers, who split two matches
this past week-end, winning from
Western Michigan Saturday and los-
ing to Notre Dame Sunday, will be
out to avenge the defeat suffered. at
the hands of the Buckeyes two weeks
ago. The score of that contest was
12-6, but the Wolverine players were
handicapped by the tricky greens on
the Ohio course.
Varsity To Play
This time, the Wolverines will have
the advantage of playing on their
home course, but unless weather con-
ditions become more favorable, they
will suffer from lack of practice. Also,
the course is liable to be in bad shape
unless more sunshine is seen before
At yesterday's workout, there was
evidence. of water on the high spots
and the entire course was heavy, thus
allowing very little bounce on the
fairways and making the greens slow.
Nevertheless, the linksmen look for-
ward to Saturday's matches, feeling
that a victory against Ohio State
would put them in a better position
for the Big Ten championship mat-
ches next month.
Played Well Saturday
Last Saturday, the golfers turned
in some of their best cards of the
season in winning from Western
Michigan, 25-2. However, on Sunday
they were beaten by the Irish, 171 -
91/2. Their showing in this contest can
probably be blamed on the fact that
they were tired following Saturday's
The same players who started in
last week's matches will undoubtedly
start against Ohio State. This in-
cludes Jack Tews, Phil Marcellus,
Paul O'Hara, Tom Messinger, John
Jenswold and Duncan Noble. Mar-
cellus and O'Hara faired the best
of these men in the last Ohio contest
when they halved their respective

Recently, Jack Tews has been
shooting the best of the squad, while
Capt. Marcellus is gradually rounding
Saturday, the best ball matches
will take place in the morning, while

Hume Twins Out for
Outdoor Mile Crown
By BILL LAMBERT
Saturday's triangular meet in which
the Wolverines play host to Purdue
and Illinois, will not only show where
the Conference outdoor power lies,G
but also presents a strong possibility
that five meet records will be erased
from the books.
That "title-toting two-some," Ross
and Bob Hume, who as the present
time share the Conference indoor
mile crown, will be shooting at the
meet record of 4:18.3 for the same
distance, and at the same time the
Michigan outdoor mile record of'
4:16.4. This latter time is the oldest1
record on the books, and was turned'
in by H. L. Carroll in 1916. Both
twins have bettered the meet record
in previous races this year, and should
they be pushed, have a good chance
of slicing Carroll's.
Young May Shatter Record
Illinois' Claude "Buddy" Young who
has been endangering so many rec-
ords in both his indoor and outdoor
performances, will have more than
a good chance of shattering the meet
record in the 100-yard dash and the
220. Last week Young tied the meet
record time of :9.6 for the century
run, and turned in a time of :20.9 for
the 220, which is two tenths of a
second better than the meet mark
which was set by Robert Grieve of
Illinois in 1935.
Any kind of a dual in the 880 be-
tween Bob Ufer, who holds the world's
indoor 440-yard record and the Con-
ference crown at the present time;
Bill Biele, the Purdue transfer who
placed fourth in the National Colle-
giates for Illinois last year; and Bob
Kelley, who nosed out Ross Hume to
take the indoor half mile title in the
Conference meet; could easily result
in the breaking of the meet record
for that distance. Both Ufer and
Biele have done better than 1:54.6
which is the meet's best time, and it
is very probable that the threesome
wil be running down around that
Illinois or Michigan Miay Take Mile
Both Illinois and Michigan have a
chance of slicing the meet mark in
the mile relay. This race, according
to Coach Ken Doherty, "will probably
decide the meet, and in this event,
we will be at no disadvantage." The
mile relay quartet from Illinois turn-
ed in a time of 3:21.1 in the Drake
Relays last week, and this is seven
tenths of a second better than the
Wolverines' best time yet this year.
Both these times are fairly close to
the meet mark of 3:19.5, and with
the two teams running against each
other the time is sure to be fast.
The Wolverine squad as a whole is
in fine shape for Saturday's program.
Julian Witherspoon, the freshman
sprinter, who was hampered with a
leg injury in the late part of the in-
door season, has responded to treat-
ment, and should be at his best. Dick
Barnard, who grabbed third in both
the half and mile runs in the Confer-
ence meet, seems to be performing
in his best season form despite a
fractured bone in his foot.
The opening gun will be fired at
1:45 Saturday afternoon at Ferry
Field and should be over by 3:10, just
about the time the baseball game
against Ohio State is slated to start.

With Tuesday's contest with Grosse
Ile rained out, the Michigan baseball
team went through a regular intra-
squad game yesterday in preparation
for their scheduled two-game series
Friday and Saturday here with Ohio
These games will be the Buckeyes'
fifth and sixth Conference starts this
season. They have played two-game
schedules with both Illinois and Chi-
cago, dropping two to the Illini and
crushing the Maroons by decisive
One of the three veterans return-
ing to the Buckeye lineup this year
is Keo Nakama, better known in Big
Ten circles as a swimmer. Nakama
was the secondary gun in the '42 tank
campaign which saw Bill Smith star
to bring home the Conference crown
Nakama holds the Conference title
in the 220 and 440 and is at present
in possession of the Big Ten record
in both events. He placed third in
the 220 and second in the 440 dis-
tance in this year's NAAU meet, and

is titleholder in both the 440 and 1,500
meters for the National Collegiates.
Nakama held down tihe third base
spot for the Ohio State diamond squad
last year and is occupying the short-
stop berth on this season's team. He
is a very deft man at g atting on base,
principally because of his diminutive
Buckeye coach, Fritz. Mackey, also
has two veteran hurlens returning to
his squad. Don Grate, Ohio State's
high-scoring cage forward, was one
of the starting pitchers in '43, and'
beat Michigan, although he was
shelled from the box iin the sixth in-
ning of the contest.
Maxa To Pitch
Gene Maxa will also be back on
the mound for the Buckeyes. Maxa
faced the Wolverines once last sea-
son, and neither team had scored by
the end of the fourth, when the game
was called because of rain.
Ohio State has no Navy trainees
and consequently the team is com-
posed of civilians. The Buckeyes

were particularly impotent at the
plate in their contests with the Illini,
having a team batting average of
.101 for the series.
Did Better at Chicago
However, they fared much better
at Chicago, where they amassed ten
runs in the last inning of the second
contest to beat the Maroons by a
17-3 count. The Chicago hurlers
made it considerably easier for the
Buckeyes in this tilt, giving up 16
In giving an estimate of the Ohio

Ray Fisher stated, "The State team
should be a little better, but in most
ways similar, to Iowa. Their pitchers
should also be similar, with Big Grate

It should be two more wins for the
Michigan tennis team this week-end,
as the varsity netters, outplayed by
one 'point in last week's Notre Dame
contest, take on both Wisconsin and
Illinois, which may well be easy meat
for the strong Wolverines.
Last week's 5-4 loss to the power-
ful -Irish squad, was not a very .de-
cisive victory, and it is expected that
the Maize and Blue netters will easily
rebound from the loss to hand both
the Badgers and the Illini, if not ov-
erwhelming, at least satisfactory
Coach LeRoy Weir was well satis-
fied with the play of the netters in
the Notre Dame contest, and felt that
the squad played very acceptable
tennis against the South Bend squad.
It was a disappointment when the
top three singles men, Jinx Johnson,
Jim Frolik and Roger Lewis, were
unable to take their matches, but on
the other hand, it was gratifying that
Bill Ford, Dave Post and Merle Gulic,
playing in the fourth, fifth and sixth
slots were able to maintain their un-
defeated status against such compe-
tition as Notre Dame afforded.
Top Men Have Lost
The top three men on the squad
have each suffered two losses during
the season, but the last three have
remained untouched in competition,
as has the number three doubles
team composed of veteran Roy Bou-
cher and transfer Merle Gulic.
Especially noteworthy has been
the play of freshman netter Bill Ford.
In none of his matches has the wily
youngster shown any tendency to
blow up, and, playing in the fourth
slot, he has run up against players
who might prove disconcerting to a
far more experienced player.
