The huge throng, jamming every inch of the picturesque

The field of 17, too, was the largest in nine years to go to

since War Admiral whipped 19 others in 1937.

Spy Song, who was the hope of l.droit automobile body

field broke from the gate. And he was wining just as far as
he could go, which was a mile, as i-d been expected. That's

Linksmen Nip Wildcats,
14-13; Grab Fourth Win
Ramsey, Courtright, Schalon, Kessler Give
Wolverines Margin as Barclay, Elliott Lose

By GLORIA VREELAND
With the outcome undecided until
the final round of the number six
singles was completed Michigan's
fighting linksmencame from behind
to nose out a strong Northwestern
golf team 14 to 13, for their fourth
win yesterday at the University golf
course.
The Wildcats took the lead in the
Morning's best-ball doubles, 5 to 4,
and continued stepping on the Wol-
verines as Manuel de la Torre and
Bob Abrams, the number one and
two men, trounced Dave Barclay and
Pete Elliott by decisive scores of 3-0
and 2% to 1/2, respectively.
Ramsey Wins
But it was the bottom section of
the team that told the story. Bill
Ramsey, playing in the number three
spot, finished with a nifty 35 for a
total of 77 to defeat Chuck Lindgren,
2-1.
Bill Courtright battled his oppon-
ent, Dick Stiverson, every inch of the
way. The two stood all even at the
end of the first nine, but Courtright
made it one up on the fifteenth hole
and hung on to that margin to win
the match 21/2 to 12.
Schalon Takes Krapfel
Starting of well with a 38 on the

first nine, Ed Schalon came through
with a 2-1 victory over Northwes-
tern's Dick Krapfel. Though Roger
Kessler turned in an 85 for the sec-
ond highest total for the Wolverines,
he played well enough to overwhelm
Jim Stotter by a 3-0 count and there-
by give Michigan the winning margin.
Ramsey's 77 was the lowest score
of the afternoon for the Wolverines
and duplicated the mark turned in by
Northwestern's ace, de la Torre.

Netters Downed
By Illinois, 6-3,
On I-M Courts
Wellington, McCluskey
Win for Wolverines
By DEE GERMAIN
An overpowering Illini tennis squad'
swept away Michigan 6-3, yesterday
in a match forced indoors by rainy
weather and gave the Wolverines
their first Conference set-back of the
current season.
Michigan's only victories came
from the thiiM, and fifth singles
and the second doubles positions.
Fred Wellington, playing number
three, remains the only Wolverine
undefeated as he took Jim Gates,
6-4, 6-3, by his steady, smart net
play.
Dean McCluskey's consistent chop
shots proved too much for Fred
Steers, his Illini opponent in a two
set match 6-2, 6-3. So far this season
McClusky has only been defeated
once out of his five appearances.
Mikulich's brilliant service re-
turn and overhead combined with
the same steady net play that won
Wellington the singles match gave
Michigan its third and final point
in the second doubles.
Jack Hersh, playing in the top
spot, fell before Roger Downs, 4-6,
6-4, 6-4, in the longest single match
of the afternoon. Downs, who in 1943
won the Big Ten singles champion-
ship, depended upon his accurate
shots and excellent court strategy.
On Thursday, the netmen meet
Western Michigan in another non-
conference tilt, and will take on Chi-
cago Saturday. Both these are home
matches.
The results:
Singles:
Roger Downs (I) Def. Jack Hersh,
4-6, 6-4, 6-4.

sprints where the wind was against1
the runners, but Bob Thomason, Wol-
verine distance ace, chalked up a
good final 880 of 2:09.7 in taking the
mile ahead of teammate Herb Barten
and Ashley Hawke of Purdue. The
time was 4:28.7.
Singing Bill Bangert captured the
shot put with a fine heave of 51 ft.
64 in., but fouled on every attempt
to hurl the discus. Big George Ostroot
of Michigan took first with a dis-
tance of 146 ft. 91% in. Chuck Fon-
ville and Jim Artley, both Wolver-
ines, placed second and third in that
order. Fonville achieved a 50 ft.
1/4 in. put in the shot to finish sec-
ond behind Bangert, with Ostroot
coming in third.
In Michigan's other slams, Barten
took the half in 2.:02.2, followed by
Chuck Low and Wayne Larmee, while
Horace Coleman sprinted ahead of
Hugh Short and Bob Ferguson in the
220 to nab a 22.6 victory.
Earlier in the afternoon Short
copped his specialty with a 49.8 per-
formance in the quarter. Bill Haidler
of Michigan grabbed the second spot
behind him, with Ed Crook of Purdue
third.
