Illinois Looms as Favorite in
Season's Finest Outdoor Meet
Wolverines, ilini Clash for 46th Time;
Several Records Likely To Be Shattered
One of the year's top-notch outdoor track meets gets under way this"
afternoon on the Ferry Field Track, when the Wolverines engage in a tri-
angular meet with Purdue and Illinois, who just yesterday showed their
potential power by downing Ohio State 73-44 at Columbus.
The 46th meeting of the Illinois and Michigan squads, renews an old '
rivalry which began back in the years 1918 to 1930, when two of track's
greatest coaches, Steve Farrell of Michigan and Harry Gill, the Illini
mentor, fought constantly for Big Ten track supremacy. The Conference
reords show that these two schools have always been on the top of the :
heap as far as team titles go. The last two or three years have seen a well
planned revival of track at Illinois, <*> -- -- -___:-.",.}

with last years' victory in the out-
door Conference meet an indication
of the exent of their improvement.
The Illini edged out the Maize
and Blue last spring 62-60 to cop
the Conf.erence crown, and finish-
ed second in last season's indoor
meet. Their squad tasted fresh
victory yesterday in their top-heavy
win over Ohio State, and the im-
pressive showings this season mark
them as the pre-meet favorite.
Purdue, although not seriously con-
sidered as a possible winner, will
undoubtedly grab a number of
points, and comes here with a rec-
ord of finishing third in the Big
Ten meet last March.
The Michigan squad as a whole is
in top shape, and will be gunning to
upset the highly touted Illinois ag-
gregation. The Hume twins will be
shooting at two records, the meet
record of 4:18.3, and H. L. Carroll's
Michigan outdoor mark of 4:16.4.
With the latest news from Illinois
stating that Bob Kelley is slated to
run the mile as well as the half,
chances are good that a new mile
mark may be written in the looks.
The Illini's star performer, Claude
"Buddy" Young, who has been
burning up the cinders so far this
year, will also be out to smash

A victory in this contest would
give the linksmen a brighter outlook
on their Big Ten championship
hopes. To date, Ohio State is the
only Western Conference team to
defeat the Wolverines, and due to
their quartet of veterans, they are
looked upon as one of the better
squads in the mid-west.
The best ball matches will be held

in the morning. The'singles matches
will begin at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Slated To Face
By DAVE IOEWENBERG
Michigan's well - balanced tennis
squad, victorious in three of its four
dual meets, faces Wisconsin and Illi-
nois today at Northwestern, in what,
should prove to be two pushover'
matches for the Wolverine crew.
Wisconsin was handed decisive 8-1
and 7-2 trimmings by Notre Dame
and Northwestern respectively. Illi-
nois suffered a 7-2 reversal at the
hands of Ohio State's Buckeyes, de-
fending champs in the Western Con-
ference net race.
Weir Announces Changed Lineup
Coach Leroy Weir announced last
night the Wolverine lineup for the
two matches. Capt. Jinx Johnson
will be in the number one spot, fol-
lowed by the West Coast flash, Jim
Frolik, in the second slot. Bill Ford,
Michigan's sensational freshman, will
hold down the third position. Ford
earned his high ranking by scoring
an impressive three-set victory over
Merle Gulic, a transfer from De
Pauw University will be playing the
fourth berth. Gulic jumped from six
to four the past week as a result of
victories over Dave Post and Lewis.
Lewis will start in the number five
spot, the lowest position that he has
held for the Wolverines in his two-
Post Is Still Undefeated
The last singles position on the
squad will be handled by Post, who
thus far this season has maintained
a perfect record. Gulic and Ford are
the other Wolverine netters

By MARY LU HEATH
Pitcher Bo Bowman preserved his
earned run average of 0.00 and reg-
istered his fourth Lriumph yesterday
as the Wolverines nosed out the Ohio
State baseball nine, 2-1, to gain their
third Conference win and rack up
their seventh victory of the season.
Don Grate, Buckeye moundsman
and cage star, turned in the most ef-
fective performance which has been
registered against the Wolverines all
spring, allowing six hits and walking
two men. Using very few curve balls,
Grate got by Michigan in the first,
third and eighth by setting the side
down in order.
However, Bowman was in even bet-
ter form, getting five strikeouts and
allowing three hits. The lone tally
which the Bucks scored in the top
half of the seventh was brought in
when a solid knock to left sent Jack
Nowels, the State shortstop, across
the plate. Nowels went down to first
when he was hit on the left wrist by
one of Bowman's slants, and subse-
quently advanced to second as short-
stop Bruce Blanchard dropped the
ball after tagging the runner out.
Michigan Scores in Second
The Wolverines drew first blood in
the second inning when they put to-
gether a fielder's choice and a triple
by rightfielder Bob Nussbaumer to
score a single run. A possible second
marker was erased when Don Lund,
who had blasted a solid single into
right, was thrown out on Swanson's
bounding ball down the third base
The final score for the Wolverines
resulted from a hit by Nussbaumer, a
sacrifice by catcher Bob Stevenson,
a fielder's choice on Bowman and a
sacrifice by second baseman Mike
The Buckeyes collected no runs
during the first six innings, but came
dangerously close to soring in the
top half of the second frame when
Nowels took first on another error
by Blanchard. He went over to
third on catcher Tom Neby's solid
hit into left and an error on left-
fielder Gregor. Gregor committed
the first misplay of the season in the
Wolverine outfield as he let Newby's
hit roll through his legs.
Nowels was subsequently erased as
Farnyk threw rightfielder Walter
Wahlstrom's bounding ball to Stev-
enson as the shortstop slid into home-
plate, Wahlstrom, on base by virtue
of the fielder's choice, stole second,
but first baseman Nick Pappas was
thrown out, second to first.
Nussbaumer Stars for Wolverines
The star 'of the game was clearly
Nussbaumer, who got the only extra
base wallop of the contest, and regis-
tered two hits in three trips to the
plate. Nussbaumer scored -the win-
ning run in the fifth and batted in
the first marker. No other man on
the field was good for more than one
hit, and the rightfielder's impressive

day at the plate kept his .667 batting'
average intact. This was the second
game in which Nussbaumer has been
started in right.
TheBuck hits were equally distrib-
uted between centerfielder George
Ranz, Newby and Wahlstrom, who
each beat out singles. Keo Nakama,
State swimming star, was especially
effective at second, and shared field-
ing honors with third-sacker Maxa,
who got five assists and one putout.
Base-Running Looks Spotty
The Wolverines were victims of
spotty base-running, and would prob-
ably have picked up more runs if
they had capitalized on their chances
in the sixth and seventh frames. In
the sixth, Blanchard was erased aft-
er he had made first on a single and
had rounded second to reach third
:n a wild pitch by Grate. However,
he had failed to touch the bag at
second, and was thrown out by Maxa.

Tiger Power Humn bles Yanks, I 0 4
NEW YORK, May 12.-(P)-The
Detroit Tigers exploded today with a
17-hit attack topped by three run
homers by Pinky Higgins and Jimmy
Outlaw to smother the league leading
New York Yankees, 10 to 4, for a
2 to 1 series edge.
Finding the range on pitchers Bill
Zuber and Floyd Bevens, Detroit
accumulated its largest score of the
season to give Hal Newhouser, who
pitched an eight-hitter, an easy time
of it for his fourth victory. The
previous high score was six runs, and
Tigers got that many in a big seventh
in which ten men went to the plate.
The only runs off Newhouser were
the result of two-run homers by Ar-
thur (Bud) Metheny in the first
inning and Ed Levy in the eighth.
The principal wrecker of the Yank-
ees today was Higgins, veteran third
baseman who hadn't batted in a run
since he homered off Jack Kramer of
St. Louis on opening day. Pinky's
homer in the fifth put Detroit in
front for keeps and he singled in two
runs in the seventh to boost his day's
output to five runs batted in.
The first three Yankees who faced
Newhouser hit safely, Metheny con-
necting for his homer after George
Stirnweiss had singled. Zuber, who
beat Detroit twice without defeat last
year, yielded a run in the second
when Outlaw walked ahead of singles
by Chuck Hostetler and Bob Swift.
