After polishing off Grosse Ile 15-1
in a mid-week non-Conference tilt,
and resting securely in top spot in
the Big Ten, the Wolverine baseball
team plays its final games of the
season today when it meets the Ohio
State crew at Columbus.
Although the games will have no,
direct effect on the top positions, a
double win for Michigan would
stretch the Maize and Blue winning
streak to 22 for the season, which
according to coach Ray Fisher, "is an
exanple of what this 1945 ball club
of mine can do." The veteran mentor
has often termed this year's club "the
best I've ever coached."
Ohio Record Average
The Buckeyes have been having
only a mediocre season, being plagued
by a lack of pitchers. They have
won four and lost six in Conference
competition, while taking six and
dropping five in outside games.
The .combination of booming bats,
and the league-leading brand of
hurling shown by Ray Louthen and
Bo Bowman, make the Michigan
hopes high for today's series. Lou-
then, the big red-head who will be
seeking his ninth win, and "Lefty"
Bo Bowman, who last year led the
league, will try for his seventh vic-
tory.
Wolverine Lineup Unchanged

SATURDAY AFTERNOON gradually assumed widespread proportions with
each passing hour until the day that all turfdom has anxiously awaited
is finally here, and the 1945 Kentucky Derby field will take their places at
the starting posts, with Jeep and Pot O' Luck rated as the two favorites.
This year's field not only has a wide representation but the form of
accomplishments by the various horses rate the event as a toss-up. There'
isn't any standout from a class rating in the group, and these horses have
taken turns beating one another.
The way the betting and the odds stand right now, no matter who
wins, the mutuals are certain to pay off better than an $8 return, and
what a positihn for an upset, which will occur in the minds of track
addicts if any horse other than Jeep crosses the finish line ahead of the
field.
Jeep, Hoop Jr. and Alexis are the three Eastern horses that continues
to hold the spotlight. Eddie Arcaro will be atol Hoop Jr., while George
*Woolf, who will pilot Sea Swallow, is the veteran of this derby field, as he
has already ridden in eight Kentucky classics.
THREE CANADIAN horses, including Kennilworth Lad, Bert G. and Fair
Jester arrived at the grounds earlier in the week and should be ready
to start at the opening sound of the gun. Bymeabond, the horse that
bungled up the Blue Grass Stakes will also be on hand, as will Darby Dieppe,
which won the Blue Grass Stakes last week-end and has been one of the3
most talked of horses since then.
The least-talked of nominee in the Derby is Misweet, a huge horse,
and the only filly to even start in a Derby since Gold Seeker was entered
nine years ago in the 1936 classic. Misweet is owned by Arthur Rose, sec-
retary of the Michigan Racing Commission, and if his horse wins, it will{
mark the first time in 30 years that a filly has performed this feat. RegretI
was the last filly to win a Derby in 1915, but when the 71st running of
the Kentucky classic gets underway, Owner Rose promises that his filly
will be right among the winners.
In 17 starts as a two-year-old, Misweet won $8,750. In her last six
starts, including two this spring, she's never been worse than fourth
and has been first, twice and second three times. She also can claim
the distinction of having beaten Darby Dieppe consistently as a juve-
nile.
Regardless who wins the 71st running of the Kentucky Derby today,
you can bet your last bottom dollar that every color entered in this glor-
ious classic will be striving hard to win that $75,000 stake and that wreath
of roses from which the aroma never seems to completely fade with the
years.
Major League Standings...

by The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE, Ky.,June 8-Sixteen
finely turned three-year-old horses
today accepted the issue for the 71st
Kentucky Derby with the prospects
that F. W. Hooper's Hoop Jr. would
go postward the favorite to show the
way home over Churchill Down's rac-
ing strip soaked by two days of rain.
If the 13 colts, two geldings and
one filly face the barrier tomorrow
at about 5:15 p.m., Central 'War
Time, it will be the richest derby in
history with a gross value of $86,875.
The winner of America's premier turf'
event, expected to attract more than
60,000 fans, will take down a net
purse of $64,850 - topping the pre-
vious high of $64,675 won by Pensive
last year.
For each withdrawal, permitted
until 45 minutes before post time, the
purse will be reduced by the starting
fee of $500. Two of the field named
through the entry box probably will
be scratched if the going remains
muddy as it was today. They are

Doherty Sends
Seven Entries
To NCAA Meet
Three Michigan track stars will
run their last race for the Maize and
Blue today when Coach Ken Doherty
sends seven thinclads to compete for
individual honors in the NCAA Track
and Field meet, which gets under way
at 8:15 p. m. CWT (9:14 p. m. EWT)
in Milwaukee.
Bob and Ross Hume, nationally
known mile twins, and Dick Forre-
stel, honorary captain-elect of next
year's track squad will run under
Michigan colors for the last time.
The Humes may not be paired to-
gether in their specialty, the. mile.
For here, Coach Doherty may enter
Bob Thomason and Bob Hume, and
leave Ross Humne for the half mile
run.
Also in the half mile will be Ar-
chie Parsons who has improved tre-
mendously since the beginning of the
season.
While Forrestel will compete
against the cream of the nation's
440 yard dash crop when he faces
eight or 10 leading quarter milers.
All these men have done under 50
seconds, and Coach Doherty looks for
a close race.
Chuck Birdsall rounds out the
Michigan running delegation when
he competes in the two mile run.
Birdsall is current Big Ten two mile
champip and will attempt to add
the national title to his belt.
John McNab, who jumped 6 ft.
1 in. in the Conference meet will also
attempt to add the Wolverine point
total.
