Ten Title Hopes
By HANK MANTI1O
When the outstanding collegiate
track teams of the country line up
for the 44th running of the Big Ten
outdoor championships Saturday,
Michigan and Illinois will, as in years
past, occupy the top rungs as favor-
ites to finish in the one-two slots.
With the loss of Bob Ufer, out-
standing middle-distance runner, all
chances for the mile relay team com-
ing through with an upset victory
over the Orange and Blue quartet
have faded, and the Wolverines will
now have to rely on the distance
and field events for first places, with.
team balance providing enough points
to keep them in the thick of the
Illini Enter Young
At the same time, Coach Leo John-
son's Illini will be at top strength,
and there is a possibility that he will
enter Claude (Buddy) Young in the
220-yard low hurdles, as well as the
100 and 220-yard dashes -and the
broad jump, the same events that
Jesse Owens ran on his record break-
ing day at the meet in 1935.
Young hasn't run the low hurdles'
in dual meet competition as he could
not get enough rest between races.
However, the Conference finals are
spaced far enough apart so that if'
he can qualify in the preliminaries,
Young should have enough rest to
compete in this affair.
Martin To Run Hurdles
Jack Martin will oppose Young in
the lowhurdles foar Michigan; and
"even should Young qualify in the
preliminaries, he will more than have
his hands full trying to break the
tape ahead of the Wolverine candi-
date. Martin, who has come into
his own in the last two dual meets,
holds the fastest time for the hurdles
in Big Ten circles, traveling the dis-
tance ini :24.1.
John Eisley, Michigan high hurd-
ler, has also improved this week in'
practice and should pick up some
valuable points for the team. Eisley's
improvement can be attributed to
the fact that he made a change in his

basis of past performances. His
toughest competition will come from

Mitchell Is Tough Player
The Wolverine representative in
the number two bracket, Jim Frolik,
has suffered three Big Ten losses.
Tom Mitchell, Harry Tully and Jim
White have all beaten the Maize and
Blue second-ranking player. Inci-
dentally, Mitchell looks like the man
to beat, although Frolik was the man
to extend him to three sets.
Merle Gulic is undefeated in the
number three singles berth, and he
should win the championship with-
out too much difficulty. Paul Roper
and Alex Franklin will be the main
barriers in Gulic's path to a title.
In the number four singles; the top
men are Michigan's Bill Ford and
Don Clawson, although the two boys
played to a 6-6 tie in their last meet-
Lewis Is Unbeaten
Michigan's Roger Lewis has a per-
fect record in the number five brac-
ket and should take the title without
too much trouble. Bob Bowel and
Bob Meyer will furnish Lewis with
his toughest opposition.
The number six singles berth finds
three players of fairly equal ability,
Dave Krenzli of Ohio State, Dave
Post of Michigan and the Illini net-
ter, Howie Shuman. Krenzli has
beaten both Post and Shuman in
close matches, while Post eked out a
three-set triumph over the Orange
and Blue representative.
Michigan's top duo of Johnson and
Ford is undefeated, but in several
matches the combination has had
tough sledding. The contest against
Ohio State's Franklin and Mitchell
was really close and both teams are
very evenly matched.
Gulic, Boucher Favored!
The Wildcat doubles team of Paul
Roper and Bob Meyer are the favor-
ites in the number two doubles berths.
Frolik and Lewis of Michigan are
next in line and should give the
Evanston team a nice battle.
Gulic and Roy Boucher are over-
whelming favorites to cop the number
three doubles title for Michigan. Gu-
lic and Boucher have encountered
only slight opposition in previous

"the Northwestern squad will be
Michigan's main nemesis.''

Big Ten Meet
Ohio State, To Give
Squad Most Trouble
By BOB CLINTON
The Wolverines' well-balanced golf
squad will be favored to recapture
the coveted Big Ten Golf Champion-
ship Saturday, when the linksmen
journey to Chicago to compete with
the best in the Western Conference
over Medinah Country Club's No. 1
Coach Ray Courtright and Capt.
Phil Marcellus will leave today for
the Windy City so that they can look
the course over before Saturday's
medal play. In this respect, the Wol-
verines may suffer because the re-
maining four men, John Jenswold,
Jack Tews, Tom Messinger and Paul
O'Hara are under naval regulations,
and therefore will not be able to
leave until Friday, and will be unable
to tour the course before playing.
Eight Teams To Compete
The site of the tournament play
had previously been announced as
the No. 3 course, but a recent change
has been made. A field of 37 players
will tee off in the matches, which
consist of 36 holes. Only eight teams
will be represented since.Iowa and
Chicago have not been represented
by squads this year.
So far this season, all the Wol-
verine contests have been match play.
Medal play differs from this in the
fact that the score for the entire 36
holes is counted in determining the
champion, instead of each individual
hole. The four best cards turned in
by the Wolverine quintet will be
counted in their quest for a team
Michigan is favored to romp off
with team honors. but they will re-
ceive a lot of competition from Pur-
due, Ohio State and Minnesota, the
latter being the strongest. This is
undoubtedly due to their overwhelm-
ing defeat of Northwestern two weeks
ago, 20I1/6/%. The Gophers are cap-
tained by Louis Lick, a member of
last year's team who finished well up
in the conference finals. They are
also strengthened by the addition of
Jim Harris, a member of Yale's pa-
tional collegiate championship team
of last year.
Thanks to the V-12 program, Pur-
due is a title contender for the first
time in many years. Their foursome,
undefeated in seven starts, is made
up of Jack Culp, a transfer from Pur-
due, Charles Lamb, Jim Harrison and
J. F. Radavich.
Ohio State's team is well known to
the Wolverines, since they have al-
ready met the Buckeyes twice. In the
first match at Ohio, the Bucks took
a 12-6 verdict, but in the return
match at the University Golf Course,
the Wolverines were supreme as they
walloped the Ohioans, 16-2.
Battle for Individual Honors
The real battle Saturday will be
for individual honors, and this looms
as a wide open affair. Last year, Ben
Smith of Michigan and Jim Teale of
Minnesota tied for the crown, but
both of these men have graduated.
Among those who may win Saturday
are Phil Marcellus, Jack Culp, Louis
Lick and Jim Harris.

their third straight and eighth Big

Editor's Note: This is a guest column written by Paily sports night editor,
By DAVE LOEWENBERG
IN THE TUESDAY edition of the Chicago Tribune, Wilfred Smith of the
Tribune sports department announced that Bob Ufer, Elroy 1-Hirsch and
Elmer Swanson would be lost to the Wolverine track squad for the eisuing
conference championships May 27.
This statement by the Tribune is only two-thirds correct. Swanson
and Ufer will not compete, but the status of Hirsch is still a big question
Hirsch has not yet been scratched from the track entry lists and
thore is much speculation as to just what this versatile athlete will do.
The alternatives are that he could perform either in baseball or track
or possibly attempt the extraordinary feat of trying to compete in both
spdrts on the same day.
We suspect that Hirsch, being the great competitor that he is, will
attempt to perform in both sports. Here is how such an arrangement could
be worked out. Hirsch could compete in the broadjump Saturday morning
and immediately after finishing, transportation could be furnished to take
him to Bloomington, a 120 miles from Champaign, where the track meet
is being staged. Hirsch would probably arrive in Bloomington around 3 p.m.
and have an hour's rest before taking up his mound duties in the second
half of the twin bill against Indiana.
HIRSCH, to date, has recorded the best jump in the Conference, and an
additional five points in the meet could easily spell the difference be-
tween victory and defeat as far as the Wolverine track squad is concerned.
Naturally, the double-header with Indiana is a crucial one, but we
are of the opinion that Hirsch's great athletic ability and snirit would
enable him to do both things with equal effectiveness.
This problem will be a highly difficult one to solve, but we are confident
that the Michigan athletic department, in collaboration with Hirsch, will
be able to work out an arrangement satisfactory to all parties concerned.

H E RE TODAY
... By NARVEY FRANK
Sparked by the pitching of Bob
Wiese and Jack Hackstadt, Michi-
gan's baseball squad eked out a 1-0
shutout over the Fort Custer nine
yesterday at Ferry Field to register
its tenth win of the season.
Wiese, giving up a single hit in the
fourth, vent five innings to win his
second victory in as many 'starts.
Hackstadt's performance was equally
effective as he gave up a ninth inning
single in four innings of hurling.
The Wolverines clearly out-hit the
Custer nine, getting seven base
knocks, five of which went for extra
bases. Four of these were doubles,
and the fifth was a triple by third-
baseman Walter Kell, making his
first appearance at bat this season.
Wiese Scores Run
The lone Wolverine tally came in
the second when Wiese led off with
a single over second base. He was
followed at the plate byacenterfielder
Don Lund, who laced a single into
left-center. Wiese went to third on
the throw-in and Lund wound up at
second. On the next play, first base-
man Elmer Swanson sent a ball to
shortstop Harry "Peanuts" Lowery,
who trapped Lund on the basepaths
and finally cut him down at second
with the aid of third baseman Joe
Ponzevic. Wiese scored on the play
and Swanson was safe at second on
the fielder's choice.
The single Michigan marker loomed
larger and larger as the game pro-
gressed and Custer failed to advance
a man past second base. The Army
squad had a man on second in the
first frame, but he was cut down by
a double play, short to first to third.
Custer also made a twin killing in
the third, when third baseman Mike
Farnyk was thrown out at second, the
pitcher to the shortstop, after second
baseman Char'ey Ketterer had been
erased at first.
The outstanding player on the field
was Lowery, who was the regular
shortstop for the Chicago Cubs be-
fore his induction into the Army.
He made a particularly fine catch of
Wiese's foul along the third base line,
barely trapping the ball with his
Modica Goes Distance
Lowery also collected one of the
two Custer hits, and was the cause
of a five-minute argument in the
fourth. He rapped an unmistakable
hit into right field and Ketterer,

catching the ball on the bounce,
flipped to Nussbaumer who in turn
threw to Blanchard for the out. Not
only was the play at second close, but
it seemed for a minute that Kettferer
had actually caught theyball before
Custer pitcher Pete Modica went
the full distance, and although he
gave up seven hits, also sent five men
to the dugout via the strikeout route.
The Michigan squad will play an-
other contest today at 4 p.m. when
it tangles for the second time with
Camp Perry. The Army squad has
inflicted the only defeat which the
Wolverines have suffered
