Linksmen Down Illinois;


Team Defeated




Wolverines to 15-12 Win,
Michigan Comes from Behind To Capture
Second Conference Win; Face Irish Next

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., May 11-Michi-
gan's linksmen, teeing off today on
the Champaign Country Club Course,
captured their second Conference vic-
tory of the season by downing the
Illinois golfers, 15-12.
Holding the doubles matches in the
-morning, the Wqlverines came out
at the tail end of the 6-3 score. But
Earl Riskey, director of intra-
mural athletics, announced yester-
day that the Sports Building will
not be open for the evening period
beginning next week.
during the afternoon singles play-off,
Coach Barclay's charges began to hit
their stride and coming from behind,
pulled the match out of the fire to
win, 12-6.
Bounding back from Wednesday's
surprising upset by the Michigan

State linksmen, the Wolverines dis-
played early season form which net-
ted them four victories. Bill Court-
right took medalist honors for the
Maize and Blue by carding a 75.
Michigan's top man for the day
again proved why he is one of the
mainstays of the team.
This gave the Maize and Blue their
fifth win, while Coach Ralph Fletch-
er's Illini team has yet to triumph.
The Illini have played in three pre-
vious matches, going down at the
hands of Purdue, Iowa, and placing
second in a quadrangle meet last
week which Ohio State won.
The Wolverines will be shooting
for their sixth victory tomorrow when
they encounter Notre'Dame at South
Bend. To date Michigan's golf team
has defeated Michigan State, the Un-
iversity of Detroit, Wayne, and North-
western, while bowing twice; once
to the Buckeyes and Spartan squads.


Sports Night Editor
THE DECISION of the University of Chicago to drop its membership in
the Big Ten has brought up the much talked of problem of the size of
the Western Conference. At present at least two schools are clamoring for
;he vacancy left last March 8, when Chicago announced its decision.
Yet there is a prevalent feeling that the Conference is already large
enough, in fact that even nine schools is unwieldy. There has been consid-
rable opposition to the method the Big Ten uses in drawing up its schedules.
Take for example the baseball season. Each of the schools plays a
home and home series with five or six of the other teams in the Con-
ference. As almost happened, a team could take the Championship
without facing the strongest teams in the league. Iowa, who didn't play
Ohio State, Michigan or Northwestern-the better teams who were
splitting series with each other, almost walked away with the cage title.
Again in the current baseball season the prospect of an inferior team
winning Conference honors seems almost certain. The two strongest teams
in the Big Ten are Michigan and Indiana. Yet it seems almost certain that
Wisconsin will win.
The schedules are drawn up so that each team plays three two-game
series at their home diamond, and a like number of games away. No team
;lays every other team in the Conference.
CONSEQUENTLY WISCONSIN has drawn a schedule that calls for series
with Chicago, Purdue, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio State and Northwestern.
The first three of these teams are definitely of poorer caliber than the nines
representing Michigan, Indiana and Illinois.'
Meanwhile Michigan and Indiana find a much tougher schedule playing
against the better teams in the Conference. The men who draw up the
schedules have no way of knowing which teams will be the strongest and do
the best they can.
Proof of the superiority of the Wolverines over the Badgers can
easily be found in the fact that Ray Fisher's charges have defeated two
teams that beat Wisconsin. Michigan State swamped the Badgers by
12-2 and 13-2 in a two-game series while Western Michigan took the
measure of the Badgers by closer margins in two contests.
The ideal schedule would pit each team against each other team in
the league. With the Conference the size it is now, or with still another
team, this would be exceedingly difficult. There are only six week-ends of
"weather" between the opening of the schedule and the beginning of finals.
TO MAKE A TEAM TRAVEL so as to play two teams on a week-end would
be tiring on the players. And in some cases it would be virtually impos-
sible. Take for example the problem of traveling from Minneapolis,
Minnesota to Columbus, Ohio overnight.
Another solution would be frowned upon by the scholastic members of
the Big Ten. This plan would be to have each team make a complete cir-
cuit of the Conference sometime during the season. Unfortunately Spring
vacations come too early in the season for this practice and for 16 men to
take a two week vacation from their studies during a semester would meet
with disfavor from academic sources.
Football schedules also would be much simpler to arrange with a
smaller Conference. With nine teams it is relatively impossible for each
team to meet every other team. Therefore one team may be declared
the mythical champions even though there is a much better team in the
Big Ten.
It is to be hoped that the Faculty Committee of the Western Oonfer-
ence takes these facts into consideration when they convene in Chicago next
month to consider filling the vacancy left by Chicago's withdrawal.

the maximum of three sets with four

outcome wasn't decided until the

season, Chicago's tennis team shaded and Robert, who gave Chicago three
the Michigan squad, 5-4, yesterday of their five points. Harry played
afternoon at Ferry Field in a match number two singles facing Michigan's

Bill Mikulich, and his placements and
consistent play beat his Wolverine
adversary, 7-5, 4-6, 6-1. Robert was
Chicago's number four man and beat
Dean McClusky in the closest singles

Tully boys combined to beat Mikulich
and Wellington in the number two
doubles match, 6-1, 3-6, 6-2.
Husum Beats Evans
In the number five match, Coach
Leroy Weir sent Jim Evans against
Howard Husum from Chicago. The
two sets played were closely con-
tested, but Husum ended on top by
scores of 6-4 and 9-7. Concluding
singles competition, Dayton was op-
posed by Dan Schulgasser. The num-
ber six man for Michigan won his
second straight singles match, 6-2,
4-6, 6-3. Dayton hasn't been de-
feated in singles play, as his first ap-
pearance in competition was last
Thursday when Michigan beat the
Broncos of Western Michigan, 9-0.

eers' third loss of the season, with
four victories in the win column.
They have won two and have two
defeats in Conference play.

day to Chicago, making its record
four wins against three losses.
took the close first set but several
late raliles won the second set for
Chicago, and they went on to win
the third set handily and the de-
ciding match, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.
The highlight of the afternoon
from the Michigan side was Fred
Wellington in extending his winning
streak to seven, playing in the num-
ber three position for the Maize and
Blue. Today Chicago sent Michel
against the Michigan ace. Playing
consistently throughout, Wellington
overpowered his opponent in straight
sets, 6-0, 6-3.
Hersh Plays Well
Hersh played his customary num-
ber one position with his serving
and all-around court play being too
much for Theimer, the Maroons'
number one man. Hersh took him in
the minimum of two sets, 6-2, 6-2.

in condition for his World Heavy-

Conn next month, floored one spar
mate today, bloodied the nose of an-

each in a vicious workout.
With Promoter Mike Jacobs of New

in the next frame before slugging it
out with Turk Daniels and George
For the first time in 11 days, Louis
did no work before climbing into the

ing weight too rapidly. Louis, how-
ever, will box again tomorrow.
