Champions Defeated
In Drake Relay Meet
DES MOINES, April 26-(AP)-Two
of three defending champions went
down to crushing defeat in major in-
dividual events opening Drake Uni-
versity's 37th annual two-day relay

The lone survivor was Drake's Fred

tory in the two mile run in 9:35.9.

Golfers Face
OSU Today
At Columbus
Buckeyes Strong
In Big Ten Opener
With two victories in as many
tries already chalked up to its credit,
Michigan's golf team will face a tough
links outfit from Ohio State in its
first Conference match of the sea-
son this afternoon at Columbus.
Coach Bill Barclay will tee off
against the Bucks with the same com-
bination which defeated the Spartans
of Michigan State last Saturday, 24-3.
In the number one spot will be the
team's mainstay, Dave Barclay. Pete
Elliott, Bill Ramsey, Dunc Noble, Ed
Schalon and Roger Kessler complete
the six man squad, in that probable
order of rank. Noble and Ramsey are
back in the line-up after having been
benched for Wednesday's tournament
with Wayne in favor of Jerry De-
Vries and John Bennett.
Bucks Have Won Two
The Buckeyes, last year's Big Ten
champs and NCAA winners, are twice
victorious this season, having over-
whelmed both the University of Cin-
cinnati and Wayne by scores of 18-0
and 21-3 last Saturday in a triangular
match on their home course.
Coach Bob Kepler's golfers are
all ex-GI's with the exception of
Howard Baker. who copped the Con-
ference individual crown last year.
Alex Polli carded the lowest scores
for Ohio State in last Saturday's com-
petition with a 77-73. Pete Sohl and
John Zoller shot 76's for the Buck's
in an earler tournament against their
Today's match will be the twenty-
sixth played between these two golf
teams. Last year Michigan trounced'
the Buckeyes, 19-8, in their second'
meeting, avenging a 15-2 defeat in
the opening encounter.

Michigan Sprint Medleyl
Quartet Finishes Fifthj

(Special to The Daily)
George Ostroot of Michigan threw
the discus 148 ft. 6 in. the best toss
of his collegiate career, to capture
second place honors behind New York
University's Bernie Mayer yesterday
afternoon in the 52nd annual Penn
Relays in Philadelphia.
The only other Wolverine place
was a fifth spot grabbed by the sprint
medley quartet of Hugh Short, Val
Johnson, Horace Coleman, and Herb
Barten. Illinois won the event, with
Ohio State, NYU, Navy, and Michigan
following in that order.
Cold Weather Slows Meet
The first day of the relay carnival
was held in dismal conditions with a
cold rain falling all afternoon. The
contestants in the discus had to spend
four hours in the 40 degree weather
to complete their throws.
Ostroot's performance was easily
the feature of the meet as far as
Michigan was concerned. He was not
expected to place so high, competing
against the top weight men in the
East. However, he upset all expecta-
tions, and came within an ace of
walking off with the first place
trophy. Mayer's winning heave was
150 ft. 3 in.
Medley Faced Disadvantage
Michigan's sprint medley team
faced too much power as they came
in fifth in a crowded field They en-
countered a disadvantage at the
very outset when Short, running in
the lead-off position, drew the next-
to-last lane near the brick wall sur-
rounding the track.
Furthermore, Herb McKenley, the
Illini's top quarter-miler,- ran the
opening 440 leg in 47 seconds flat,
giving Illinois a substantial lead from
the start. Marce Gonzales, Jack
Pierce, and Bob Rehberg were never
behind in the rest of the race.
Voegtlen in Two Mile
Dean Voegtlen, the only other Wol-
verine entered in an individual event,
ran a capable 9:55 two-mile, but
failed to place in a fast field headed
by Tommy Quinn, who captured first
in 9:36.6.
Beside copping the sprint medley,
Illinois won the 440 yard relay in 41.5
seconds, .4 of a second off the record.
They have also entered teams in the
880 relay and mile relay today which
are favored to take first places, giving
them an excellent chance to equal

Michigan's feat of last year of cap-
turing four relays championships.
The Wolverines are scheduled to
compete in the mile relay and two-
mile relay this afternon. Voegtlen,
Chuck Low, Bob Thomason, and Bar-
ten will run the latter, while the well-
known quartet of Bill Haidler, John-
son, Coleman, and Short are entered
in the mile race.
If the weather improves for to-
day's events, some new records may
be written into the Relays books.
Illinois' mile relay outfit stands the
best chance of setting a new mark,
especially considering McKenley's
outstanding quarter race in the
sprint medley.

Board Proposes
Sports Arena,
ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 26-(0P)
-Proposal for a new hockey and
basketball arena, additional swim-
ming facilities and basketball prac-
tice courts was made today by the
University of Michigan Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The proposal was made in the
Board's annual report to the Regents
which pointed out that the "rapid in-
crease" in University enrollment has
made present sports facilities "utter-
ly inadequate."
Signed by Board Chairman and
Athletic Director H. O. Crisler, the
report estimated that if student at-
tendance at football games increases
"as some have thought, to 17,000,"
over-all net gridiron receipts, the ma-
jor financial source of the Univer-
sity's sports program, may drop
Previous student attendance has
numbered 10,000 and the report said
"each of those seats occupied by
those additional 7,000 students repre-
sents a potential income in football
of well over $100,000."
