Seeking to get started on another winning streak, the Michigan base-
ball team will take the field at 3:30 today on the local diamond to face the
highly regarded Western Michigan nine.
The Broncos bring to Ann Arbor the enviable record of being one of
the best regarded teams in the Midwest over a period of years. So far this
year Coach Chuck Maher's charges have taken the measure of Michigan
State, 9-1, overwhelmed Wisconsinv -

Coach in Purdue Meet
George Ostroot, Wolverine shot put
and discus ace, was elected captain
for the remainder of the 19.6 season
by the Michigan thinclads just be-
fore the Purdue meet at Lafayettej
got under way last Saturday, Coach
Ken Doherty revealed yesterday.
Ostroot replaces hurdler Elmer
Swanson, who shifted to baseball1
when the indoor track campaign
ended.
Ostroot a Leader
Commenting on the selection of the
weight min for the important posi-
tion, Doherty declared that Ostroot
had shown himself to be a very
definite leader in the time he has
been at Michigan.
In connection with the meet at
Purdue, the Wolverine coach stressed!
the fine performances of several new
men running for the thinclads forj
the first time.
Larmee Takes Third
Wayne Larmee, for example, in his
initial try at varsity competition, out-
ran several Boilermakers to cop a
thirdsplace behind Michigan's Herb
Barten and Chuck Low in the half.
Bob Ferguson, newcomer to Doherty's
sprint squad, nipped veteran Horace
Coleman in the century dash and
was just a step behind Coleman and
Hugh Short in the 220.
Ronnie Soble came through with
a creditable quarter-mile in the
second leg of the mile relay to help
that quartet to its victory. Tom Ken-
ny proved himself a valuable addition
to the hurdles by capturing a third
behind Gutting of Purdue and Niel
MacIntyre of the Wolverines.

"yOU NEVER CAN BE SURE ABOUT WINNING a ball game," Coach
Ray Fisher warned before the series with Illinois at Champaign.
"Its the breaks that win and lose games and you can never tell when a
line drive is going to land in a player's glove and when it will go past him
for a hit," Fisher continued.
The coach cited the Michigan State game as an example of a con-
test in which a break helped the Wolverine cause. Pinch-hitter Nick
Gregory, rounding third for the Spartans in the ninth inning of a 4-2
game, slipped on the wet turf and was out by a wide margin at the plate;
helping Michigan no little bit.
A wet field and- muddy spikes figured prominently in the Wolverine loss
to Illinois. A week of rain had preceded the Michigan invasion of Champaign
and mud caked on the player's spikes even before they completed the long
walk from the locker room to the visitor's bench.
Through the early innings Michigan kept the Illini infielders busy
chasing bunts, but failed in this attempt to take advantage of the muddy
ground as one bunted ball after another popped in the air, rolled into
foul ground or was trickled straight at an opposing fielder. Only Walt
Kell in the first and Don Robinson in the fourth inning had their efforts
meet with success.
Michigan's calculated plan of playing on the side of the elements was
foiled by bunted balls that refused to stay away from infielders. IIinois, on
the other hand, hit away at Bliss "Bo" Bowman's offerings without trying
intentionally for breaks.
WITH THE SCORE KNOTTED at three runs apiece in the bottom half
exeof the tenth inning, Bob Wakefield drew a walk from "Pro" Boim,
exceptionally fast Wolverine reliefer.
Lee Eilbracht, Illini catcher, who had been retired but once all after-
noon came to the plate. Lacing one of Boim's fast balls back of third,
Eilbracht reached first and Wakefield broke all the way for third. 0ob-
inson, racing madly back of third picked up the ball and with an under-
hand toss to Kell nabbed Wakefield at third.
Michigan breathed easier for a moment. Then came the break of the
game as Les Miller, Illinois leftfielder, tied into one of Pro's deliveries and
hoisted a drive down the leftfield line.
Fleet Jack Weisenburger started out for the sailing horsehide, but
muddy turf and clotted spikes slowed Weisenburger's pace. Eilbracht,
racing with head down, rounded third as Michigan's outfielder and the
speeding baseball headed for the same point in distant left.
Glove and ball met as Eilbracht practically toed home. Then, in left, the
ball fell to the ground for a hit, as joyous Illinois teammates greeted their
winning run at the plate.
Muddy spikes which gave the Wolverines a break in an earlier game
snapped Michigan's 27 game skein of wins. "Breaks win ball games," said
the coach.
Michigan and Illinois maintained their keen record of competition and
the record of Fisher-coached teams as against those piloted by Illini
coach Wally Roettger stands at 12 Maize and Blue wins as against 10 for
Illinois.

After leading the field wit a 7 1
in his first malutch of the season when
the Michigan golfers crushed Detroit
last Friday, Bill Courtright starred
again on the links for the Wolverines
in Saturday's photo finish, 14 to 13
triumph over Northwestern.
It was his match that decided the
outcome, as decisive defeats already
suffered by the top men, Dave Bar-
clay and Pete Elliott, had put the
Michigan linksmen on the short side
of the score. Courtright stood all
even with his opponent, Dick Stiver-
son at the end of the first round and
had to do nothing less than win the
second nine to give his team the
one point margin of victory.
He made it one up on the fifteenth
hole, and held that lead till the end,
proving that in spite of his wildness
he knows how to hit that ball when
it counts.
The unusually high scores turned
in Saturday weren't necessarily a bad
sign, considering the terrific cold,
wind, and rain the linksmen had to
contend with. Bill Ramsey, with a
77, was the only Wolverine to shoot

below 80. Pete Elliott was way off
his game againi, carding anl 87 for
the second dayin a 'row. Barclay,
who shot an 83, felt he could have
made a match out of what was
otherwise a shellacking if he hadn't
three putted several greens. Ed Scha-
Ion, who was hitting the ball well,
also had trouble with the slippery
greens and finished with an 80.
