As Wolverines Seek 26th Football Game oi 75th Birthday

Sports Night Editor
ON CHILLY, windswept Franklin Field in Philadelphia last week, a
group of six Illinois athletes gave a remarkable exhibition of versatility
and running ability, when they combined on three occasions to win relay
events han-dily, missing a fourth triumph by the freak accident of a poor
baton exchange. Thus, the University of Illinois missed out on becoming
the third school to win at least four Penn Relays titles in a single weekend'
Nevertheless, this group of men, namely Herb McKenley, Marce
Gonzales, George Walker, Bill Mathis, Jack Pierce, Bob Rehberg,
and (Dwight Eddleman who who the high jump for the second w
straight.year), will go down in the history of the Orange and Blue
as being some of the most versatile, if not the most versatile, athletes
ever to wear the uniform of the Illini.
ON FRIDAY, McKenley, Gonzales, Pierce and Rehberg combined to take
the sprint medley event going away. The remarkable aspect of this
race was the scintillating quarter-mile turned in by McKenley, whose con-
sistent form has lifted Illinois' relay teams above mediocrity into the super-
ior category. The rangy Jamaican was clocked in :47 flat, just six-tenths
shy the world outdoor standard of :46.4. The fact that this time was estab-
lished on a slow track, in a high wind and chilly temperature, caused
several observers to venture the opinion that the Illinois star could very
easily shatter the world record for this event under more favorable condi-
Just warming up, the Illinois contingent then stepped off the
quarter-mile relay in :41.5, which was four-tenths away from the
Relay's record. This time it was Pierce, Mathis, Walker and McKen-
ley doing the heavy work.
ON SATURDAY, with two titles tucked safely away, the Illini looked like
sure bets to walk away with the 880 and mile relay events. No other'
schools had been able to match the burning speed of the mid-western sprint-
ers, and these two races were their specialties. But misfortune overtook
the Illini, when McKenley juggled the baton, and ran outside his lane in
completing the exchange. As a result the team was disqualified but the
time established in the preliminaries was noticeably faster than that of the
winning Navy quartet. The realization of this fact was the only thing sal-
vaged from the 880 yd. relay.
The mile relay, last on the Penn Relays agenda was run on a
plowed, deeply furrowed track. The race was close for the first three
exchanges. Michigan's Horace Coleman matched strides with Marce
Gonzales of the Illini on the third leg, and things were fairly even
when MeKenley got the baton. After that it was all Illinois, as the
slender sprinter roared around the oval, fifteen yards ahead of the
field. As he crossed the finish line, the clocks registered :46.9 for
his 440 leg and 3:18.4 for the entire distance.
ONCE AGAIN officials blinked, wondering what will happen when McKen-
ley cuts loose in the hot weather of June and July. Leo Johnson, Illini
coach predicts that his ace quarter-miler will lower the world record for
the 440, break 21 seconds in the 220, and cover the 100 in 10 secpnds fiat.
In addition, Johnson is expecting two other sprinters to turn in :9.7 centur-
ies and :20.9 furlongs when Conference time rolls around.
Illinois power was very much in evidence in the Drake Relays when
its "secondstring" mile relay squad ran a neat 3:23 to win that event, thus
retaining the title captured in 1945.
The on-coming Conference mile run took on added significance
when it was announced that Earl Mitchell, Indiana's top ace of
pre-war days, will be available for duty. As a preview of things to
come, the Hoosier miler beat off the finishing kick of Notre Dame's
Bill Leonard in the anchor leg of the four-mile relay at Des Moines,
trotting home in 4:19, which is a creditable debut for any miler of
Mitchell's calibre.

fennis Squad
Faces Wayne
Netmen Today
Michigan's varsity tennis squad
went through a brief practice session,
yesterday in preparation for the
Wayne match today at 3 p.m. on the
Ferry Field courts.
Coach Weir will use the same four
top singles' men, Jack Hersh, Bill
Mikulich, Fred Wellington, and Dean
McClusky, but may do some shift-
ing about in the fifth and sixth spots.
'Ihe doubles' combinations will remain
intact with Hersh and Wellington in
the number one slot, Evans and Miku-
lich playing second, and ending the
pairs are Schoenlaub and McClusky.
Bob Ryland and Del Russell hold
dovn the number one and two singles
for Wayne, both of these boys are
lettermen from last year. So far this
season the Tartars have whipped
Purdue, Oberlin and Cincinnati, while
losing to Illinois and Ohio State.
Weir's men will be out for their
fourth consecutive victory of the
season and their sixth straight win
over Wayne. The Wolverines have
won every match since the two teams
started playing back in 1932.
After today's match, the netmen
will face stiff competition from Big
Ten teams in the form of Illinois, Chi-
cago, Northwestern, Ohio State, and
Minnesota. According to Weir, Illin-
cis, Ohio State and Chicago will be
the teams to beat this season.
