Nine Plays Doubleheader with illini T oday

CHAMPAIGN, May 3-Rain today
caused the postponement of the
scheduled baseball game between the
Wolverines and Illinois at Cham-
paign, but it was immediately decided
to couple the lost game with tomor-
row's tilt and stage a doubleheader
in the afternoon.
Thus baseball fans will still have an
opportunity to get two looks at the
Michigan team against its first tough
Conference compeition.
Earl Block and Bo Bowman will be
on the mound for the Maize and
Blue, facing Al Scharf and Marv
Rothblatt of the Illini. The rest of the
Michigan line-up remains the some,

Dual Clash at
Purdue Today
Heavily favored to take top honors,
twenty-five Michigan thinec lads
launch their outdoor dual meet cam-
paign this afternoon against Purdue
at Lafayette, Indiana.
Regardless of the final outcome,
however, several of the races and
field events promise some extremly
keen competition. In addition, Coach
Ken Doherty has taken this early
season opportunity to experiment a
little, switching some of the men to
different events.
Close Fight in Discus
There will be sharp struggles for
first place in both the shot put and
discus. Bill Bangert, Purdue's singing
weight man, will clash with the Wol-
verine's noted freshman ace, Chuck
Fonville, in the shot, while Big George
Ostroot will attempt to out-throw
the same Boilermaker in the discus.
Bangert defeated both Fonville and
Ostroot indoors in the Purdue Relays
shot put, but only last week was upset
in the Drake Relays and had to be
satisfied with third. He came back
next day, however, to capture the
discus title. At the same-time, Ostroot
was copping a second in the Penn
Relays which indicates how close the
fight will be this afternoon.
Harris in High Juenp
Michigan's Bob Harris and Dick
Kilpatrick of Purdue are expected to
batle it out for high jump honors
Kilpatrick won the championship in
the recent Indoor Conference meet,
while Harris grabbed second just a
shade below him.
Two of Michigan's top performers
have been shifted from their usual
events. Val Johnson, one of Doherty's
leading sprinters, is scheduled for the
quarter-mile in contrast to his custo-
mary appearance in the 100 and 220-
yard dashes.
Taking Johnson's place in the
sprints will be Horace Coleman, who
until today's meet competed in the

LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 3--(/P)--
The largest field in nine years-17

tomorrow's tremendous 72nd Ken-
tucky Derby, with Lord Boswell as
the horse to beat and a throng of
100,000 expected to watch the 16
others try to do it in the mud.

Maine Chance Enters Three
As the Derby-eve Julip Jamboree
went on like Niagara through the

Maine goes, so goes the derby-Maine
Chance, that is."
For Mrs. Elizabeth Graham, the
lipstick and face powder princess, had
three horses from her Maine Chance
Farm in the field of 17-the first
three-horse entry in a decade and
the solid choice to pick up the $96,-
400 winner's paycheck from this
richest of all derbies.
Derby Wide Open
Yet, despite the presence of this
"three-aces-back-to-back" in Lord

Vying for their third straight Big
Ten Conference victory and their
fourth win in five starts, Michigan's
varsity tennis squad will tangle with
the highly-touted, undefeated Illi-
nois netmen at 2 p.m. today at Ferry
The netmen's only loss of the sea-
son was suffered at the hands of
Wayne's powerful Tartars last Tues-
day in the closest match of the sea-
son, 5-4, after winning last week-end
from Purdue and Indiana.
Illini Powerful
The Illini will present the toughest
competition that the netters have
met to date, and this afternoon's
match will show the spectators the
best talent that any home tilt will
produce this year.
Coach LeRoy Weir will alter his
lineup slightly to meet the onslaught
of the netmen from Champaign. Jim
Evans, who didn't compete in singles
in the Wayne matches but previous to
that was undefeated in competition
at the number five position, will play
at number four today. Dean McClus-
ky will tangle in the number five
position and will face Fred Steers.
Ray Von Spreckelson will tangle at
the number four slot for Illinois.
IHersh Faces Migdow
The rest of the singles lineup re-
mains intact with the same men com-
peting. Jack Hersh will be at his
accustomed number one position and
will play Benny Migdow, Illinois'
brilliant freshman southpaw.
In the number two bracket, Michi-
gan's Bill Mikulich and Roger Downs
will compete. Downs was Big Ten

singles champion when he played for
Northwestern in 1943. Fred Welling-
ton, undefeated in singles play this
season, will again perform in the
number three position, and his oppo-
nent will be Jim Gates for the Illini.
Hal Cook will be Michigan's con-
testant at number six against Mel
Doubles Lineup Switched
For, the first time this season
Coach Weir will change his doubles
lineup for the Illinois match. Playing
one will be Hersh and Evans. Evans
formerly competed with the number
two duo, but distinguished himself in
the Wayne match and has ben pro-
moted to the number one combina-
tion. They will face Migdow and
Gates for Illinois.
