(Continued from Page 1)
In a heavy downpour which trans-
formed the cinder path into a river,
Illinois' stubby, 18-yea-r-old freshman
stumbled and plowed on his stomach
through the water like an outdoor
motorboat after leading Michigan's
Jack Martin, the eventual winner, by
about 30 feet.
It was the end of an exhaustive
day for the little Negro pre-medical
student. After spending the morning
in a broiling sun qualifying for four
events, he returned after a rest of
only four hours to win the 100-yard
dash in :09.7 and the 220 in :21.3.
His broad jump mark of 22 feet 10
in ches during the morning prelim-
inaries stood up during the afternoon
tests for his third victory.
Hirsch Third in Broad Jump
Elroy Hirsch, Michigan's versatile
athlete, finished third in the broad
jump after posting 22 feet 5 inches
in the preliminaries before making a
150-mile trip to Bloomington, Tnd.,
to pitch for the Wolverines' baseball
team against Indiana.
Other champions in the meet, which.
fell far short of producing records,
Nelson Klaus of Purdue-in the
discus, with 139 feet 4% inches, and
the shotput, with 48 feet 2% inches;
David Nichols, Illinois-in the 120-
yard high hurdles :15.1, John Schmidt
of Ohio State and Bob Phelps of Illi-
nois (indoor co-champions) -again

tied in the pole vault with 23 feet
8 inches; Bill Dale of Michigan and

Armin Bauman of Minnesota (indoor
co-champions) - again tied in the
high jump at six feet. Purdue won
the mile relay.
Michigan's 70 points were the sec-
ond highest total in Big Ten Outdoorj
Meet history. Illinois scored 74 in
1924 for the all-time high.

Special to The Daily
EVANSTON, Ill., May 27.--Michi-
gan's tennis squad, after the first day
of play in the annual Western Con-
ference net championships, has plac-
ed three men, Merle Gulic, Roger
Lewis and Dave Post, in the final
round, which will be played off Sun-
Jinx Johnson, Michigan's number
one man dropped an exciting three-
set match to Buckeye Aris Franklin.
The scores were 6-3, 6-8, 6-3. Frank-
lin played very aggressive tennis and
it was superb net play that made
possible his victory. Johnson dis-
played his usual steady game but was
not quite able to cope with Franklin's
excellent placement shots.
Jim Frolik, playing in the number
two slot for Michigan, captured his
first match from Paul Riepma of
Illinois, 6-1, 6-3. In the afternoon
match Frolik lost a three-set duel to
Ohio State's top-seeded Torn Mitchell
by scores of 6-3, 6-8, 6-0.
Gulic Wins Twice
The Maize and Blue number three
performer, Merle Guic, continued
his rout of Big Ten opponents by win-
ning two matches in yesterday's
play. His first win was an easy 6-1,
6-4 triumph over Joel Davitz of
Illinois. His second match against
the Maroon netter, Ham Gallagher,
was beautifully played and Gulic
really had to work for his 6-3, 13-11
triumph. Gulic displayed a great
deal of ability in the back court and
was especially effective with a tan-
talizing drop shot.
In today's finals, Gulic will face the
Buckeye performer, Alex Franklin.
Gulic defeated Franklin in their last

Bill Ford, playing in the fourth
berth, won his first match from
Sandy Weissman of Chicago. The
scores were 6-3, 6-8, 6-3. Ford drop-
ped his second match to Northwest-
ern's steady Frank Clawson. The
scores were 6-4, 3-6, 6-0. This Was
one of the feature tilts of the after-
noon, and both boys played excellent
tennis. Clawson's expert volleying at
the net finally turned the tide in his
As expected, Roger Lewis had little
difficulty in gaining the final round
for the number five singles cham-
pionships. Lewis walloped Dick Sha-
piro of Chicago, 6-4, 6-4, in his first
match and then came back to win an
easy 6-2, 6-3 victory over Wildcat
Bob Meyers. Lewis will pair off
against Bob Bowen of Ohio in the
finals. Lewis was an easy winner the
last time the two boys met, and the

'Michigan southpaw is an overwhelm-
ing favorite to cop the championship.
Post Places in Finals
Dave Post, playing in the sixth
position, won his way into the finals
with two well-earned victories. His
first win was a 6-0, 6-3 victory over
Minnesota's Roger Olsen. Post's sec-
ond game against Bob Hobarts of
Northwestern was a tedidus three-
hour match and Post finally won out,
2-6, 7-5, 8-6.
DaveKrenzli of Ohio State will be
Post's opponent in today's finals.
Krenzli beat Post in their last meet-
ing but the match was very close.
Ohi-o State Leads
In the singles competition Ohio
State leads Michigan, 11-8. How-
ever, Gulic, Lewis and Post all face
Ohio State men today, and Gulic
and Lewis are top-heavy favorites to
win. The match between Post and
Krenzli is a toss-up.
The battle for the team champion-
ship is definitely a two-way struggle
between Michigan and Ohio State.
With only one round of doubles on
the books, it is very difficult to make
any predictions as to the eventual
Michigan's top doubles team of
Johnson and Ford won their first
round from Riepma and Don Staake
of Illinois, 6-4, 6-2. The number
three Wolverine duo of Gulic and
Roy Boucher scored a convincing 6-2,
6-3 victory over the Maroon combina-
tion of Wiesman and Bill Drennan.

By Jeiiswold; Purdue
Finishes as Runner-Up
CHICAGO, May 27.-(P)-Michi-
gan captured its eighth Big Ten golf
title at Medinah Country Club today,
wvinning the 23rd annual Western
Conference tournament with a four-
*man 36-hole aggregate of 623 as its
No. 5 man, Johnny Jenswold of Du-
luth, Minn., shot a 153 for the in-
dividual championship. The Wol-
verines were defending champions.
In the morning round Jenswold, a
V-12 student from Michigan Tech,
Houghton, Mich., turned in a two over
par 72-one of the best scores ever
posted in a Conference meet. He
sagged to 831 in the final 18.
The slender Wolverine's 72 enabled
him to take the first round advant-
age from Johnny Tews, a teammate,
who had led with 77. Jim Harris of
Minnesota, a member of Yale's na-
tional championship team last sea-
son, was third with a 78.
Marcellus Is Second
Wolverine Captain Phil Marcellus
and Jack Culp of Purdue tied for sec-
Irish Tk T

ond place by posting 155's, but Mar-
cellus won a coin toss for the runner-
up medal.
Culp's 75 on the afternoon round,
together with his morning 80, en-
abled the Boilermakers to grab sec-
ond place team honors with a 650
Minnesota Third
Next were Minnesota with 653, Ohio
State 654, Wisconsin 664, Northwest-
ern 667, and Illinois 669. Indiana
had only. two men entered, so could
not qualify in the team standings.
Iowa and Chicago were not repre-
As a result of Jenswold's perform-
ance, Michigan entered the after-
noon's final 18 with a first round
total of 307 and a firm hold on the
championship. Marcellus and Paul
O'Hara each contributed 79's to the
Wolverine total. The team title is
decided on the best foursome total.
Jenswold Shines
Jenswold came to Michigan from
Michigan Tech last July. He had
played hockey at Michigan Tech and
also played on the Michigan sextet,
when someone discovered that he also


could hit a golf ball. It also was
discovered he had been playing golf
since he was five years old, under
the tutelage of Joe and Sammy Bel-
His first round card:

Par In......543 444 345--3"f---70
Jenswold In ..444 444 246-36-72
Jenswold was short of the first
green and had a bogey five. He went
into a trap on the third for his sec-
ond bogey five on the first nine.
Coming in, he drove a No. 3 wood
close to the 507-yard 10th and got a
birdie with a chip to .five feet. He
three-putted the 150-yard 12th but
landed a No. 4 iron shot eight feet
from the cup on the 231-yard 16th
and made a deuce. Three putts on
tihe last green cost him another deuce,

Tom Messenger, 84-75-159.
Paul O'Hara, 79-81-160.
