Links men Eye-
Third Straight
Field of 37 Divided
Into One Foursome,
Eleven Threesomes
A powerful and well-balanced
Wolverine golf squad heads a field
of eight teams today, when they tee
off for the 36-hole Big Ten golf
championship over the Medinah
Country Club course at Chicago.
The Wolverines are in quest of
their third straight team title, as
Well as their eighth for the entire
conference series. The linksmen are
favored to win the tournament, but
not before receiving a great deal of
competition from the foirsomes of
Ohio State, Minnesota, and Purdue.
Pairings for the conference sweep-
stakes were announced Thursday,
and the entry list of 37 men has been
divided into 11 threesomes and one
foursome, the first of these taking
the course at 8:30 a. m.
The first three threesomes include
the favorites for the individual title
with Jack Tews of Michigan, Warren
Williamson of Northwestern, and
Preston Crabill of Ohio State, the
respective teams No. 1 men, leading
the way.
Minnesota Main Threat
Coach Ray Courtright has entered
Marcellus, Tews, John Jenswold
Paul O'Hara, and Tom Messinger in
the tournament with the top four
cards being used to determine Mich-
igan's team total. Tie main threat
to the Wolverine title hopes will be
the Golden Golphers of Minnesota.
The Golpher quintet will be head-
ed by Louis Lick, a member of last
year's team, and Jim Harris, a var-
sity golfer for three years at Yale.
Rounding out th'e group will be Bob
Bronson, Jack Cooper, and Jerry
Milner. The Golfers chances rest
almost entirely in the hands of the
latter three, as it is generally be-
lieved that Lick and Harris will per-
form up to expectations.
Purdue Enters Strong Team
Harry Allspaw, Purdue golf men-
tor, will enter a foursome of Jack
Culp, Jim Harrison, Charles Lamb,
and John Radavich. It has been
largely the work of this quartet that
has enabled the Boilermakers to go
through the season with a record
of six victories, two defeats, and one
tie in dual meet competition.
Ohio State will undoubtedly use
their foursome of Crabill, Dick Pet-
erson, Bob Love, and John Spilker
that split even in two dual matches
with the Wolverines.
The team title will go to the
school having the low four-man
score, while the player having the
lowest card will be awarded indi-.
vidual honors.
Netters Will
Battle Against
Big Ten Foes
(Continued from Page 1)
and he was at a great disadvantage.
Adams, in turn, has lost to Aris
Franklin, and Harry Hall, both of
whom have dropped decisions to
Michigan's representative in the
second slot, Jim Frolik, has suffered
three Big Ten losses, but all of them
were close and the tide might easily

turn in favor of him in today's
matches. Tom Mitchell of Ohio
State is favored to win in the sec-
ond position.
At number three, Michigan's Merle
Gulic will be a heavy favorite to
walk off with all,the honors. Gulic
has been playing fine tennis all year
and ~o one in the Conference has
yet been able to extend this power-
ful player.
Michigan's aggressive freshman
star, Bill Ford, will be co-favored
along with Frank Clawson of North-
western to fight it out for the num-
ber four title. Ford and Clawson
played a 6-6 tie in their last meet-
ing but Coach Leroy Weir feels that
Ford should win the next time the
two .boys meet.j
Roger Lewis, the Michigan south=-I
paw, should win the title at numberj
five without too much difficulty.
The battle for the number six title
looks like a wide-open race. Dave'
Krenzli of Ohio holds a very slight
edge, but he wil be hard pressed by
Michigan's Dave ,Post and the Illini
netter Howie Shunman. Krenzli
edged out Post in a three-set match,
while Post barely squeezed out a
three-set victory over Shuman.
In the doubles competition Michi-
gan is favored to cop the number one
and three championships, although'
Lewis and Frolik, the number twoI
team have only been beaten once.

Baseball Squad Seeks Victories
In Double-Bill With Hoosiers

(Continued from Page 1)
Jesse Owens of the Buckeyes in the
1935 Conference race while running
in the same events.
However, to accomplish these feats,
Young will have a much tougher
time than Owens did while racking
up his 20 points. Because.the Confer-
ence meet will all be run in one day
this year, in contrast to previous
years when the trials were run on the
Friday before the regularly scheduled
day of the meet.
To bolster this expected scoring
spree of Young's, Captain Bob Kelley
will be out to repeat his performances
of last year in the 440 and- 880-yard
runs, which he chalked up in the
Conference finals while pacing the
Illini to second place in the final
The Boilermaker squad, which
came in third in the Big Ten indoor
meet last March, will undoubtedly
finish in the same spot after the
matches today. However, Purdue's
hopes took a turn for the best last

Saturday when Coach Homer Allen's;
team pushed the Wolverines to thej
limit before they succumbed to the
Michigan attack, 62/2-552, in a
quadrangular meet held in Lafayette:
Purdue scored seven out of the thir-
teen individual affairs, also winning
the mile relay.
In an effort to squelch the title
aspirations of Michigan and Illinois,
Purdue will count heavily on Ben
Harvey, who is strong in the dashes;
Jack Exler in the 880, Bill Beile and
Don Weber in the 440, while Nelson
Klaus, Conference champion in the
shotput, will compete in the latter
event as well as the discus throw.
Against this aggregate of power,
Michigan will stack their main hopes
on the Hume twins, who are sched-
uled to rack up 18 points, and a
bunch of seconds, thirds, fourths and
fifths, which should put the Maize
and Blue in the same position that
they held last year when they won
the title without the aid of a single1

Bowman and Hirsch,
Undefeated Hurlers,
Sjated as Starters
Michigan will seek to make it six,
Wes>tern Conference baseball victor-
ies in as many starts today when it
takes on the up and coming Indiana
nine in a double header on the
Hoosiers' home diamond at Bloom-
Coach Ray Fisher's Wolverines
have already notched a pair of tri-
umphs each over Iowa and Ohio
State to become the only Big Ten
outfit that can boast a perfect rec-
ord. All other squads have dropped
at least one tilt.
In order to preserve the team's
perfect slate, Fisher will send his
two ace pitchers, lefty Bo Bowman
and right hander Elroy Hirsch to the
mound in the twin-bill. Neither
hurler has met defeat so far this
season although Bowman ran into
difficulty at Illinois last weekend and
had to be content with a 4-4 seven-
inning tie.
Fischer Watching Bowman
Bowman apparently had the game
in the palm of his hand going into
the seventh but a three-run Illinois
uprising climaxed by a three-run
homer by Row Wiedow tied up the
ball game. Rain interfered before
the contest could proceed another
full frame. Thus, Fisher is a little
worried about his star southpaw's
performance at Bloomington, but is
hoping he will regain his winning
In his only start against Confer-
ence opposition, Hirsch threw a one-
hitter against Ohio State and Fish-
er is confident that he can turn in
another winning stint against the
Hoosiers. Hirsch' activities for to-
day are still a matter' of doubt as
he is also entered in the Western
Conference track meet at Cham-
paign, Ill., but Fisher made it clear

that the baseball squad had first
call on his services and that he will
hurl the second game of the twin-
bill regardless.
Wolverines Need Double Victory
Michigan needs a double victory
today to insure its continued stran-
gle-hold on the Big Ten lead. Al-'
though a split or even the loss of
two games would not put the Wol-
verines out of the running entire-
ly, it would necessitate a double-win
over Purdue in the last games of
the season next Saturday. As Pur-
due is one of the tougher teams in
the Conference, this feat might not
be so easy.
At the beginning of spring train-
ing and during the first few tilts of
the campaign, Indiana was looked
upon as a pushover by most observ-
ers. Coach "Pooch" Harrel had one
veteran and a small squad of civilian
freshmen from which to mold a ball
team, and most experts figured it
couldn't be done.
Draft Weakens Indiana Club
Then there was the draft which
kept claiming his first string per-
formers almost as fast as they be-
came able to hold their own in stiff
competition. But in spite of these
handicaps, Harrel has built a team
which was strong enough to lick

Purdue once last week and almost
turned the trick twice.
Fisher characterized the Hoosiers
as a "rapidly improving ball club"
and one which might give any team
a lot of trouble. They are no longer
rated as "pushovers," and while they
are out of the running for any title
laurels, are in. a position to make
Michigan's championship q u e s t
mighty difficult with a pair of upset
wins today.
Bobo Newsom Pitches
3-2 Vilcory over Tigers
DETROIT, May 26.--(})-Blustery
Bobo Newsom got a measure of re-
venge on the Detroit Tigers today by
gaining the pitching victory in a 3 to
2 decision by the Philadelphia Ath-
letics that ran Detroit's home record
to one victory in 13 games and six
successive defeats.
Last week at Philadelphia, old
Bobo lost to the Tigers and Paul
Trout on two unearned runs, but this
time things evened up for Newsom.
The A's gathered three unearned
runs off Trout, and Jittery Joe Berry
came on the scene in the ninth to
save old Bobo's victory.
