June 9 Set for Running

Large Field Will
Offer Pick of 155
By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 22-The
delayed running of r this year's war-
time Kentucky Derby will be on June
9 with a field of 155 nominations, Col.
Matt Winn, president of Churchill
Downs, announced today.
This represents the largest number
of eligibles for the turf classic since
1929 and paves the way for what
many believe will be one of the wid-
est open Derbies in recent years.
Col. Winn announced details of the
historic race less than a week after
the federal ban was removed from
the sport. The Derby, first race in
the turf's big three events, will be
followed by the Preakness at Balti-
more, June 16, and the Belmont
Stakes at New York, June 23.
Race Postponed
The original date for. the race for
the roses, a gold trophy and $75,000
in added money was May 5 but it
had to be postponed because of war-
time conditions.
The nominations for the 71st run-
ning of the Derby include most of
the country's outstanding three-year-
olds. Among them are John Marsch's

Free For All, whose 1:41 3/5 out of
the gate for a mile in today's work-
out at Churchill Downs was one of
the best of the year. Art Roi, a
stablemate, covered the same distance
in 1:44 today.
Many Nominated
Other outstanding three-year-olds
nominated for the Derby include Cal-
umet Farm's Pot O' Luck and Battle
Fire; Greentree Stables' Dockstader;
Col. E. R. Bradley's Burning Dream
and Bail Bond; William Ziegler's Es-
teem; and Belair Stud's Johnsport.
This year's racing ban left little on
which to judge the field for the mile
and a quarter Derby classic. Thus, it
was seen here as a wide open affair.

Rain Cancels'
Baseball Tilt
Rain caused the cancellation of the
third ball game in two week-ends
yesterday when Michigan's baseball
squad dropped the final game in a
two-day series with Notre Dame from
its schedule.
The Wolverines, three times victor-
icus over the Irish this season and
winners of Friday's contest by a 12-3
score, will not re-schedule, the Notre
Dame tilt, Coach Ray Fisher an-
nounced yesterday.
With a record of six wins against
three losses to the Irish in the past
two 3 ears, the Wolverine nine can
boast a decisive edge on the South
Benders. Although this year's Notre
Dame squad displayed skill in the
field, the pitching department proved
the weak link in Irish unity.

Eisenhart Wins
Mile From Hume
(Continued from Page 1)
distance, as unknown Tom Cara
crossed the line ahead of an un-
wieldy nine-man field in :50.8. Mich-
igan entrant Dick Forrestal lost a
shoe in the backstretch and ran the
last 200 yards without it to finish a
strong third.
Walker Takes Both Hurdles
Illinois hurdle star George Walker
became the meet's only double winner
as he broke the tape in front in
both the high and low hurdles, nosing
out Ohio State's Wilmer Jackson in
the highs by less than a foot in :14.9
and easily outdistancing the low hur-
dle field in :24.1.
JulianhWitherspoon gave the Wol-
verines their first of four first places
as he edged out Marce Gonzales by
a scant half-stride in the 100-yard
dash. He later lost out to Klemmer
and Gonzales in the 220, as Klem-
mer turned in the best performance

of the day with a :21.6 effort over
the sloppy track.
Michigan Shows Distance Strength
Michigan showed its distance
strength by winning both the half-
mile and two-mile with comparative
ease as Ross Hume loped through the
880 in 1:59.2 and Charlie Birdsall
took his two-mile specialty in 10:05.2.
Archie Parsons turned in one of the
best performances of his career for
Michigan in the half-mile as he out-
ran Eisenhart in the stretch to finish
a strong second, four yards behind
After his unfortunate experience in
the 440, Forrestal came back in the
mile relay to clinch a Michigan vic-
tory with a fast third leg, opening
up a 20-yard lead for anchorman Bill
Shepherd after taking the baton two
yards behind the leading man. The
Wolverine quartet's time of 3:24.6
was excellent considering the condi-
tion of the running surface.
High Jump Is Key Event
The high jump proved one of the
key events of the meet as Great Lakes
racked up eight points to go into the
lead for the first time. John Heintz-

man, who also accounted for a much-
needed second place in the broad
jump, topped the field with a 6 ft.
1 3/4 in. effort as teammates Orval
Gillette and Bob Churches finished
in ties for second and fourth.
Gillette, Warren Bentz of Michi-
gan, and Ohio State's Johnny
Schmidt ended in a three-way dead-
lock for first in the pole vault, and
Stan Sprague of Illinois beat out the
favorite, Ohio State's Jack Dugger,
in the shot put. Dugger came back
to win the discus with a heave of 139
ft. 2 7/8 in.
With attention focussed on the
broad jump, Henry Aihara of Illi-
nois, Big Ten champ in the event,
placed first with a leap of 22 ft. 11
in., but the meet was decided when
Heintzman and Klemmer finished
second and third, giving the Blue-
jackets five points and victory.
Michigan is next scheduled to meet
Purdue University in a dual meet here
Saturday. The Wolverines have al-
ready bested the Boilermakers once
this season, scoring 80 points to their
40 in a triangular meet in which Mi-
ami University was also represented.

WASHINGTON, May 12-(/P)-
Sports will "be lucky" to play out
regular schedules this summer and
fall unless Japan quickly folds up,
relieving the burden on transporta-
tion, says ODT Director J. Monroe
It already has been demonstrated
in redeployment following Germany's
defeat, Johnson said today, that the
"impact on sports like everything
else will be terrific."
Going over the sports situation in
an interview, Johnson commented
There is "no possibility' 'of tjie
All-Star Major League game being
The Kentucky Deity, Preakness,
Belmont Stakes and other horse rac-
ing headliners will be conducted on a
"trolley car" basis;
The World Series cannot be held
unless both pennants are won in one
city as St. Louis did last season;
Bowl Gamnes Out
Bowl football games "simply will
be out of the question" along with
the College All-Star game in Chicago
and similar contests;
All college football games must be
played on the "home" field of one
of the competing teams. This in-
cludes the Army-Navy game, played
in Baltimore last season as a war
loan feature.
Japs Must Quit First
"And even if Japan quits by next
September, it will be about six months
before we recover enough to help any-
body," Johnson said. "The only hope
is for the Japanese to see the light
in the next six weeks or so."
Johnson's remarks struck the sports
world like a bucket of cold water.
With the lifting of the ban on rac-
ing, rescission of the war depart-
ment's regulations on 4-F profes-
