Both Mile,
T. 1
LAFAYETTE, Ind., May 20.-(I)-
Michigan's balanced track team
fought off a strong Purdue challenge
to win a quadrangular meet today,
scoring 62 7-12 points to top the
Boilermakers' 55%/2. Far behind were
Western Michigan with 20 1-3 and
Minnesota with 14 7-12.
The flying twins of Michigan, Bob:
and. Ross Hume, shared a unique
double triumph by tying for first in
both the mile and two-mile runs.
Their mile time of 4,:;16.4 tied the
all-time Michigan record set by Eddie
Carroll in 1916.
Ben Harvey and Nelson Klaus
scored double wins for Purdue, Har-
vey taking both dashes and Klaus the
shotput and discus throw. Purdue
won seven of the 13 individual events
and the mile relay. The latter victory
came on an 49.8 anchor leg by Bill
Beile, who trailed Forrestal of Michi-
gan by ten yards as he started the
final lap but won by two yards.
Michigan trailed Purdue until the
last five events, but clean sweeps of
the first three places in the two-mile
run and the pole vault put them in
front. The Wolverines competed
without the point-getting services of
broadjunper Elroy Hirsch and hurd-
ler Elmer Swanson.

OLF HAS HIT THE HEADLINES recently, not because there has been
an unusual or spectacular match played, and not because one of golf's
outstanding professionals has performed unusual or daring feats on one
of the battlefronts. Golf has received recognition because it has been found
that the links sport is one of the most effective ways for convalescent sol-
diers to regain their strength.
Men who have been badly wounded and who has lost the ability
to coordinate, are finding in golf a pleasant and unusual way to bring
strength hack to torn tissue.
As any duffer can point out, golf, although it looks like a simple swing
of the shoulders, in reality brings into play a large number of the muscles
in the body, and the novice can also inform you that if you keep on trying
to hit that little white ball long enough, those muscles get plenty of action.
Convalescents, badly in need of corrective exercises to constantly stim-
ulate healing muscles, find in golf the perfect answer to the problem. Not
only is golf -moreinteresting than the usual set of rigid exercises that are
automatically run through, without any great incentive on the part of either
the director or the man hoping to benefit therefrom, but golf also provides
that other thing which so many long-hospitalized patients need-plenty of
fresh air.
On the golf course a convalescent can not only bring new life into
practically useless muscles, but at the same time he is able to dispense
with the depressing hospital pallor, which clings to men who have been
forced to remain in sick bay for any length of time.
THE FACT THAT GOLF, without being too strenuous, is still exercise
enough to be of positive benefit, has been recognized by civic authorities
in more than one city, so that in such places as Chicago and Washington
golf clubs have urged that all convalescent servicemen use their courses
without paying the usual fee. Likewise these same groups have organized
drives within the city, begging people with extra golf clubs, or clubs that
are not being used, to donate them for the use of the soldier patients, many
of whom have never played the game before and have not the money to
purchase equipment.
Soldiers who have viewed golf as a "sissy" sport are getting quite a
surprise. Like the many beginners who hack away at the tee every
spring, they are disconcerted to discover that the game isn't as easy as
it looks, and many of them register definite surprise and disgust when
the ball fails to take the expected lengthy flight far down the fairway.
They display the usual amount of temper when that apparently dead-
hit nutt veers off and avoids the cup with diabolical cunning.
Physical therapists are full of praise for the game and although it
sometimes isn't exactly a morale raiser-witness the gloomy faces when that
birdie three didn't materialize-it does the job which they are so anxious
to have accomplished.. Golf seems to be another sport that is doing its
share in the war effort.

Baseball Squad Plays To 4-4 Deadlock at

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 20.--(P)--
The Wolverines' baseball team played

GRADUATION exercises
were held yesterday for the
May class of Co. A. Capt.
Paul F. Rusch, personnel
director in charge of selec-
ting the men for Co. A, was
the main speaker. Others
who spoke were Dr. Joseph
Yamagiwa, Capt. George G.
Spence, commanding offi-
cer of the Company, and
Cpl. Robert J. C. Butow,
who spoke in behalf of the
graduating class. For the
work they did here on cam-
cpus, the men will receive 30
llours of University credit,
which can be applied either
on an A.B. degree or on a
master's . . . Friday the
men of the graduating
class held a farewell din-
ner and dance. The dinner
was held in the mess hall
of the East Quadrangle;
the men and their dates
went through the regular
chow line. But it was a
little different than the
usual meal, for skits, a
quartette and a dance
chorus were provided by

422 votes. His closest rival
was Newv York's Gov. Tho-
mas E. Dewey with 186
votes. Wendell L. Willkie,
though he has withdrawn
from the race, received 46
votes, Harold E. Stassen,
40, and Gov. John W.
Bricker, 32. Gen. Douglas
MacArthur and Earl C.
Browder each polled eight
votes, while Norman Tho-
mas was favored by four
students. Two votes each
went to Gov. Earl Warren,
Herbert Hoover and Ar-
thur H. Vandenberg. For-
eign policy was the deter-
mining factor in many of
the votes for Roosevelt,
though his liberal domestic
policy also won him a num-
ber of votes. For instance
one coed said, "I want
Roosevelt because I can't
think of any other man in
the United States who has
the experience, the know-
ledge of foreign affairs and
the ability to take his
place." Anoth&' comment-

days here last week. In an
opening address Tuesday
Dr. Charles A. Fisher, head
of the University's Exten-
sion Service, discussed ex-
isting programs for adult
education in the United
States, said that few adult
education programs spon-
sored by universities are
self - sustaining, but are
partially subsidized by the
states. Such education, he
said, is vital to freedom.
Dr. Alexander G. Ruthven,
president of the University,
told of British work in ad-
ult education conducted
despite wartime candicaps.
Gov. Harry F. Kelly was to
address the group Wednes-
day, but was detained in
Lansing. Robert S. Ford,
director of the Department
of Business Administration
in the Executive Office of
the Governor, read Kelly's
speech, which detailed the
uses to which the financial
surplus, swelled by war-
boom taxes would be put
and said that a nortion of
