Ralph Riehl, Jr., the Eastern ace in
the 220 and 440, is rated highly in the
150-yard backstroke, the 200-yard
breaststroke, the 1,500-meter free-
style, and the 100-yard freestyle.
In the backstroke, Cornell's Char-
lie Klein and Dave Iseman have post-
ed excellent time records, and are ex-
pected to be the major opponents to
Conference champion Bob Knight of
Indiana.
PaulnMurray is perhaps the most
outstanding individualist of Little's
crew. Murray finished fifth in last
year's N. C. A. A. with a time of 2:35.0,
as Carl Paulson of Brown won the
heat in 2:28.3.

Markward Does Well
In Three-Inning Stint
After playing in a slight drizzle for
three innings yesterday afternoon,
Coach Ray Fisher's baseball squad
was chased into, the Field House by
a drenching shower.
The club was working out on the
regular diamond, which, according to
Coach Fisher, is practically in play-
ing shape. The veteran mentor used
all his available talent, and appeared
pleased with the practice session.
Lanky Jack Markward, 6 ft. 5 in.
pitcher who last year hurled for
Chicago, showed more stuff on the
mound than in any previous workout.
George Petty did the chucking for
the other nine, and held the boys to
a few scattered hits.
The first team lineup had veteran
kob Stevenson behind the plate, Jack
Hlackstadt on first, Walt Kell on
second, Jack Weisenburger at short,
Joe Ponsetto holding down third,
and Don Lund, Gus Marcus, and Bill
Nelson in the outfield.
Bill Gregor, who last year led the
nine in the batting department, had
late classes and as a result was un-
able. to join in the workout.
Howie Yerges donned the mask for
Petty's club, and was supported by
Schrum at first, Tomasi on second,
Soboleski at short, Drollinger on
third, and Morrin, Cameron, and
Mallard playing the outfield.

greatly, and in the Cornell-Sampson
Naval Training Center tourney reg-
istered a 2:28.5 win. This is far
above the 2:35.2 winning time in the
Big Ten meet which Kessler of Mich-
igan and Ojampa of Minnesota hold
jointly.
Di Stasio Challenges Church
Dick Di Stasio is the Big Red's
main hope in the short distance free-
style events. Di Stasio is rated as one
of the most promising swimming
prospects of the season, and will
provide keen competition for Cap-
tain Mert Church, holder of the50
and 200-yard freestyle Conference
crowns.
Cornell's medley relay team will
also constitute a big obstacle to Wol-
verine national hopes, as the Big Red
has registered 3:07.6 in the 300-yard
distance.
Mowerson Will Be Out
Although the Wolverines copped
the Big Ten title in the event with a
time of 3:06, they will be without the
services of Bob Mowerson, South Sea
veteran, because of a ruling prohibit-
ing graduate students from swim-
ming in the meet.
When asked about Cornell's chan-
ces in the meet, Michigan Coach
Matt Mann expressed the opinion
that Cornell is the "dark horse" of
the contest, "and it is entirely with-
in the realm of comprehension to
foresee a Big Red victory."

THE GARDENERS-These are the Detroit Tiger out fielders who expect to bear the brunt of the club's
field duties this season. All are in their thirties. Left to right, Chuck Hostetler, who will be 40 Septem-
ber 2; Roger Cramer, who will be 40 July 22; and the "baby," Jimmy Outlaw, who is 32.
S UCCESSFUL FINISH:
Doherty Pleased with Performance of

4-

Climaxing a successful indoor track
season, Michigan's Western Confer-
ence champions added a second
crown to their collection as they cop-
ped the annual Purdue Relays Sat-
urday by defeating Illinois 361/2 to 20.
The Wolverines won both the two
mile and distance medley relay titles
and finished second to Illinois in
the naile relay and second to Great
Lakes in the sprint medley event.
The thinclads also copped third place
in the low hurdles and a, third and
tie for -fourth in the pole vault.
Coach Ken Doherty, commenting
on the meet, cited Ross Hume, Chuck

SLASSIFIED ADVErTISING

Birdsall, and Ted Balogh as giving
outstanding performances. Coach
Doherty said that Balogh's third in
the 65-yard low hurdles was especially
commendable considering the facts
that he didn't place in the Confer-
ence meet, the track was slower, and
the competition was much stiffer.

Tigers' Punch
EVANSVILLE, Ind., March 26.--
/)-With their two top hitters of
1944 now wearing the uniform of{
Uncle Sam's Navy, the Detroit Tig-
ers are hardly as badly hit as it
might seem.
Departure of sweet-swatting Dickj
Wakefield, a .355 hitter, and thirdI
baseman MVike (Pinky) Higgins, ad-
mittedly the best clutch-hitter of the
club, leaves the Tigers with a pair
of gaping holes. but for manager
Steve O'Neill's money they're already
as good as filled.

medley relay was also good, accord-
ing to Coach Doherty. Chuck Birds-
all completed the trio of outstand-
ing thinclads by pacing off a 1:59
half-mile in the two mile relay. This
time is two seconds better than Birds-
all has ever done.
Commenting on the times recorded
by the respective relay quartets,
Coach Doherty cited the two mile and
one mile relay teams. The two-
milers registered a 7:52 time, or av-
eraged 1:58, half-miles without the
Hume twins. George Vetter turned
in the best time by recording a
1:56.4 half-mile.
In the mile relay, although the
team finished second it turned in a
:26 mile which is the best time for
' this quartet all year. This time was
two seconds better than the time at
the Conference meet and was reg-
istered on a slower track.
The track squad will take a week's
vacation before starting training for
the outdoor season. Then they will
begin preparations for the Penn Re-
lays, which will be held on April 28.
The team will remain intact except
for the loss of Bill Marcoux, ace
low and high hurdler.
