Battle To Preview
Conference Meet
By BILL MULLENDORE
What Michigan track coach Ken
Doherty called "the finest track meet,
other than Conference and national
meets, to be held in the United States
this year" will get under way at 1:30
p.m. EWT (12:30 p.m. CWT) tomor-
row when Michigan, Illinois, Ohio
State, and Great Lakes hook up in
what promises to be the most bitterly
contested cinder clash held on Ferry
Field in several years.
Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio State
finished one, two, three, in the West-
ern Conference indoor meet and give
every indication of putting on an-
other slam-bang three-way battle
right down to the final event. Great
Lakes, headed by a group of highly-
touted individual stars, also figures to
score heavily in several events.
Although installed in the favor-
ite's role by virtue of their one-
point Big Ten indoor victory over
the Illii, the Wolverines will have
their hands full while running
against a collection of a good share

Reported Dead
CLEVELAND, May 10.-(AP)-Capt.
Elmer Gedeon, former University of
Michigan track star and outfielder
for the Washington Nationals of the
American League, was killed in a

ported today.
The 26-year-old Air Force pilot
previously was listed "missing in

of the finest track talent the mid-
west has to offer.
Heading the list of individual title-
holders on the program are two Great
Lakes' representatives, Grover Klem-
mer, world record holder in the 440-
yard dash at :46.4, and Les Eisen-
hart, 1000-yard AAU champion.
Klemmer is expected to run the 440
and a leg of the mile relay, while
Eisenhart is entered in the mile and
half-mile.
Other champions include Ross
and Bob Hume, Michigan's dis-
tance aces and intercollegiate and
Conference mile titlists. Illinois'
Bob Kelley, Big Ten 440 and 880
champ and also NCAA half-mile
title-holder, pole vaulter Johnny
Schmidt, king of the Big Ten and
NCAA in his specialty, and Confer-
ence broad.jump champion Henry
Athara of Illinois.
Top race of the afternoon prom-
ises to be the mile in which Eisenhart,
the Humes, Tom White of Ohio State,
and possibly Kelley will toe the mark.
Provided favorable weather conditions
prevail, one of the fastest outdoor
miles of the season is expected.
The half mile also offersdsharp
competition with Kelley, Ross Hume,
and Eisenhart seeking the winner's
position. A host of top-notch hurdl-
ers, including Wilmer Jackson of
Ohio State, Illinois' trio of George
Walker, Bill Cooley, and George
Burghart, and Charles Dykema and
Ted Balogh of the Wolverines should
provide good ,races in both the highs
and lows.
The field events find Ohio State's
former All-American end Jack Dug-
ger heavily favored in the shot put
and discus, while Athara and
Schmidt are expected to top the
field in the broad jump and pole
vault respectively.

Louthen Meets Barrett
For Second Time Today
Improved Notre Dame Squad Undefeated
Since Previous Encounter with Michigan
By PHIL WITTENBERG
Ray Louthen, Wolverine hurler who has bowled over opponents with
his excellent pitching for three victories this season, will take the mound
against Notre Dame's Irish for the second time when the teams clash today
at 4 o'clock (3 o'clock CWT)-at Ferry Field.
Michigan defeated Notre Dame in a pair of games two weeks ago at
South Bend to the tunes of 6-1 and 12-4 with Louthen gaining the initial
win by his effective seven 'hit per-
formance. The Irish, however, have the same team that opposed the

Clipping the UnivJersity of Detroit
and Western Michigan to the tune of
151,2-21/ and 171/2-1/2 respectively last
week-end, Michigan's golfers will be
seekingtheir fourth win of the sea-
son tomorrow when they tee off
against northwestern University at
Evanston.
Coach Bill Barclay will take a five-
man squad to encounter the Wildcats
in the Wolverines' second conference
match of the year, but as yet he has
only selected three members of the
team to make the trip.
Three Players Named
Captain Paul O'Hara, Phil Mar-
cellus, and John Tews will play in
the Wildcat match and the other two
players will be chosen from today's
practice results said the Maize and
Blue golf mentor.
Barclay said that he expects to-
morrow's contest to be as tough as
the Ohio State match which Michi-
gan lost in a hard-fought battle, 15-
12. To date Northwestern has won
two tilts by taking Wi3consin 29%/-
31, and Purdue by a score of 21-3.
The Wolverine linksmen will be
gunning for their fourth win and
their third straight victory. In the
opening match of the year, Barclay's

charges took the University of De-
troit 151/2-21/, and the following
week they suffered their only defeat
at the hands of the Buckeye golfers.
Victories Won in Rain
Last week-end the squ .d captured
2 mnatches; both were held under very
unfavorable weather conditions with
constant downpours making the fair-
ways and greens of little use in get-
ting that "extra roll".
In the second Titan match, Tews
and Marcellus each carded a 76
which gave them top honors, and

ELROY HIRSCH
M's Only Four
Lfetter- Winner
Visits Campus
Hirsch Gained Fame
Here in One Season
Lieut. Elroy Hirsch (U$MC), who
wrote a new page into Michigan
sports record books last year when
he hauled down major letters in four
sports, returned to the scene of his
athletic triumphs yesterday on his
way to his home in Wassau, Wis.,
after receiving his commission Wed-
nesday at Quantico, Va.
As the only -Wolverine athlete ever
to win four letters in a single season,
Hirsch created enough Michigan
sports history to last the average
performer a lifetime. Not only did
he, compete successfully in football,
basketball, baseball, and track dur-
ing his short one-year span in a
Maize and Blue uniform, but he also
left his mark . as one of the finest
sportsmen and competitors in the
nation.
After being transferred to the
Michigan campus from the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin, Hirsch promptly
went out for football and distinguish-
ed himself on the gridiron despite a
succession of injuries, climaxing his
pigskin career by running off the
bench to kick an extra point against
Wisconsin without the knowledge ofj
the coaches.

Fisher, who pitcher for the Yank-

names as Roger Peckinpaugh and
Wally Pipp were associated with the
club, remembers Gilhooley as "'a fine
fellow, and a better-than-average
outfielder."
Frank Jr., who is now playing his
third year of college ball, bats third
in the Irish, batting order, and is
termed as "a much-improved ball-
player this year," by coach Fisher.
"From watching Notre Dame in two
games this year, I'd say he is the
outstanding player on the club," he
finished.

Reporting to the basketball team
at the conclusion of the football
season, "The Ghost" won for himself
the regular center berth, owing large-
ly to his scrappy, spirited style of
play and , phenomenal backboard
ability.
The following spring saw him
working with the baseball squad,
where Coach Ray Fisher made a
pitcher out of him, despite his al-
most complete lack of experience on
the diamond. Hirsch responded no-
bly, winning six games against a
single loss. While working with the
baseball team, he took time off to
notch his fourth and final letter 'y
placing third in the broadjump at
the Western Cqnference track .neet
