Big Ten Championship

Clinching three singles crowns as
well as one doubles title, Michigan's
net squad, playing off the Big Ten
finals in Chicago, last week-end also
walked off with team honors, nar-
rowly defeating a well-balanced Ohio
State squad, 18-17.
At the end of the first day of play
Michigan trailed Ohio State by two
points, as the Buckeye netters quali-
fied five men in singles competition,
while all three of the Ohio State
doubles teams as well as all three
of the Maize and Blue squads were
still undefeated. Michigan was able
to amass only eight points in singles
competition as Jinx Johnson, Jim
Frolik and Bill Ford were all beaten
in early rounds.

ANOTHER FOR THE TWINS--Rounding a curve in the Big Ten out-
door track meet held at Champaign, Ill., Saturday, Ross and Bob Hume
lead the pack. The twins crossed the finish line together to win the
race in a dead heat.

Jenswold Is Medallist
As Golfers Take Title
By 27-Stroke Margin
Living up to expectations, the Wol-
verine linksmen captured their third
successive Big Ten golf crown May 27
at Chicago.
The big surprise of the tournament
was Johnny Jenswold's winning of
the individual championship with a
score of 72. Jenswold had been play-
ing fair golf during the season and
his top mark was against Detroit
May 20, when he carded a 74 which
made him top man for both teams.
He came to Michigan last July in
the V-12 unit, and had previously
attended Detroit Tech. At Detroit
Tech he occupied a position on the
hockey team, and during the past
season played on the Michigan sex-
Marcellus Is Runner-Up
Phil Marcellus, captain of the Wol-
verine linksmen, and Jack Culp of
Purdue tied for second place by post-
ing 155's, but Marcellus won a coin
toss for the runner-up medal. Mar-
cellus had a slow start this year, as
in past seasons, but he began to hit
his normal pace when the linksters
has been maintaining a fast clip
encountered Ohio State May 13, and
since then.
Jim Harris of Minnesota, who was
on Yale's championship team last
season, took third place in the indi-
vidual playoffs .when he carded a 78.
Tews Is Consistent
.The other members of the cham-
pionship team, John Tews, Tom Mes-
singer and Paul O'Hara, all played
top golf and were in rare form to aid
their teammates in copping Michi-
gan's eighth Conference title. Of
the trio, Tews shot the best score
with a 156 for the match. He was
followed by Messinger who carded
a 159, while O'Hara's mark for the
afternoon was 160.
Tews has been the most consistent
player on the squad, shooting in the
70's all season, and it was mainly
due to him that the golfers beat Ohio
State here after suffering a 12-6 de-
feat at Columbus. During the eight
match schedule, Messinger and O'-
Hara's scores ranged in the high 70's
and low 80's.
Michigan Beats Out Purdue
Pacing a field of eight schools,
Michigan won the team title with a
623, and the second place team, Pur-
due, had & score of 650. Third spot
went to Minnesota as the Gophers
carded 653. Ohio State followed with
654, while Wisconsin's 664 gave them
fifth place. Northwestern and Illinois
were sixth and seventh respectively
with marks of 667 and 669. Indiana
was represented by only two men, and
the Hoosiers could not therefore com-
pete for the team title. Iowa and
Chicago were not entrants.
The match against the University
of Detroit May 20 closed the Wol-
verine's 1944 golf schedule with the
record standing at six victories a-
gainst two defeats, suffered at the
hands of Notre Dame and Ohio State.

LOWdown on Sports

TURN BACK the pages to June 2, 1923. The strains of "The Victors"
could be heard throughout the land, for on that day Michigan won her
fifth and sixth Conference championships of the years. Steve Farrell's
trackmen captured the meet with 57%1 points to the Illini's 57, while the
baseball team, which had won 11 Big Ten tilts, automatically took the
crown as its last game with Wisconsin was rained out.
Previously the Wolverines had garnered the Big Ten title in foot-
ball, cross country, indoor track and tennis. Five of these teams boasted
unblemished records in Conference comuetition, while' the sixth, out-
door track, had only a dual meet loss to Illinois to mar its record. That
year the basketball and hockey teams finished in the runnerup spot,
while the swimmers (Matt Mann had not yet arrived on the scene)
finished in sixth place.
This past week-end Maize and Blue squads on three fronts came
through with three Conference titles, while the fourth team, baseball,
swarmed all over Indiana in a two-game series to remain undefeated in
Big Ten competition. In its quest to regain the crown they lost to Ohio
State last year, the nine is now a game ahead of second place Minnesota
whose won-lost record is 6 to 1.
The track, tepnis and golf teams all came out on top in the meets
this last week-end, but only the later squad had an easy time of it.
Coach Ray Courtright's golfers finished 27 strokes ahead of runnerup
Minnesota as Johnny Jenswold took medalist honors with a 36-hole
total of 153. Captain Phil Marcellus tied for second with a 155 card,
while number one man John Tews posted a 156.
T HE THINCLADS rolled up 70 points to take the track meet from Illinois,
whose second place total of 58 1 10 was far too short. It was team bal-
ance against individual stars as the Wolverines spread-eagled the field by
placing 22 men in all but one of the 14 events on the program. Michigan
failed to place in the 440 as Bob Ufer, indoor quarter-mile champ, could
not compete because of a leg injury incurred last week. Ufer was on the
sidelines, however, cheering his mates on to ultimate victory. It must have
seemed peculiar to the "Hose" to be forced to sit by and not be able to
compete, but the old do-or-die spirit was still there and Bob's words of praise
and encouragement did a lot for the morale of the team.
With ten minutes to go before the half mile, Ken Doherty looked at
his "dope sheet" and saw that the Wolverines were eight points behind,
figuring wlaat hid already happened and what was probably going to
happen. He ran into the training room and summoned Captain Bob
Hume. "Get out there and warm tip," he told the congenial leader. Bob
got on the track with only six minutes to go. As Doherty was about to
ask Hume to run because the Varsity needed every extra point, the iron
man of the team volunteered to run the half., He then proceeded to
take not only a second behind fleet-footed Bob Kelley, but to also help
pull Dick Barnard and George Vetter along. It is just this sort of
leadership that has enabled the Wolverine trackmen to finish the
season unbeaten.
Two Changes Proposed at NCAA
NEW YORK, May 29.-(/P)--College fooball coaches voted unanimous
disapproval of the intentional out-of-bounds kickoff late today and sent a
recommendation to Lt. Col. William Gingham of Harvard, chairman of the
NCAA rules committee, that his group meet as early as possible to consider
two changes in the playing code.
The first suggested rule change would put the ball in play following an
out-of-bounds kickoff on the receiving teams' 45-yard line instead of on
the 35. Use of a one-inch tee at the kickoff also was suggested.
