Thinclads Tune
For Illini Meet
Away Saturday
Hampered in its first two dual
meets of the outdoor season by soggy
tracks and cold, windy weather,
Michigan's track squad has never-
theless turned in creditable perform-
ances in its decisive triumphs over
Purdue and Notre Dame.
Coach Ken Doherty was well pleas-
ed with the showing of his thin-
clads in their final tune-up before
tangling with Illinois' powerful track
machine in a dual meet at Cham-
paign this weekend. In one of the
closest races of the Notre Dame meet
Michigan's Dean Voegtlen collared
Cornelius Styers on the final straight-
away to capture the two mile run,
from the Notre Dame thinclad in
the creditable time of 9:55.8.
It was anyone's race right down
to the tape with the lead changing
hands three times in the last lap. Ed
Johnson of the Wolverines led the
pack into the final quarter but was
forced to relinguish his lead to Sty-
ers on the back-stretch. Voegtlei)
then came on to nip Styers near
the tape.
By grabbing second place in the
discus throw, Chuck Fonville came
within Z/2 in. of tying the freshman
record with a heave of 147 ft. 4/2in.
While Michigan's track squad was
taking Notre Dame, Coach Leo John-
son's Illini squad overwhelmed the
Purdue aggregation by the lopsided
score of ,90-32. Illinois' Herb McKen-
ley made another assault on the
record books when he unofficially
ei sed the oldest Big Ten mark with
a :46.7 440 effort.
Despite a cold. wind and a soggy
track, MccKenley clipped .4 of a
second from the old record made by
Binga Dislrnond, of Chicago in 1919.
'TWo other Illini also set meet records,
Dyle Eddleman in the high jump
with a leap of 6ft.'6in. and Bill Mat-
l,", whc turned in a :09.7 clocking
for the 100.






Golfer's Road Jinx Continues;
Kessler Tops Wolverine Card
Elliott, Kessler Score L.one Wii in Doubles
As Irish Competitor Hits Three Under Par

Maize and Blue Seek Tenth Win;
Wise Chosen as Starting Pitcher

Notre Damuc Boasts
Season Mark of 8-1
Two of the best college baseball
teams in the Midwest will square off
against each other at 3:30 p.m. today
at Ferry Field when the Michigan
nine faces Notre Dame.
The Irish boast an 8-1 won and
lost recor to date, while Michigan's
recordstands at 9-1. The blemish
on the Irish record came in a game
with Indiana.
Hoping for a break in the weather
after the two weekend contests with
I the Hoosiers had been rained out,
Coach Ray Fisher said yesterday,
"Notre Dame has one of the best col-
lege teams in the country and one
of the truly outstanding stars in
Pitcher Jack Barrett.",
Michigan's mound, choice will be
Cliff Wise, lanky right hander who
has two wins and no defeats for his
work so far this season. It is almost
certain that the Wolverine mentor
will also let Earl Block and Bliss
Bowman do some of the hurling.
Neither of the pitchers has seen any
action since they each worked two
innings last Wednesday against the
University of Detroit.
Last year the Maize and Blue
won all three contests they played
with the Irish. Two of the games
were won by the top heavy scores
of 12-1 and 12-4, while the third
contest was won, 6-1.
Ili ans Break .Even
CLEVELAND, May 13-(/P)-The
Cleveland Indians came up with a
triple play today as they divided a
doubleheader with then St.Louis
Browns. The Tribe annexed the
opener 9 to 2 on Red Embree's fancy
five-hit performance, but the Browns'
came back in the afterpiece to tri-
umph 3 to 0 on Al Milner's six-hit.

The Irish coach, Jake Kline, is an
old Notre Dame baseballer himself.
took a pair of contests from Michi-
He played on the Irish squad that
gan back in 1916. In one of the
games Kline hit three home runs
to pace his team as they overwhelmed
the Wolverines by a 14-6 count.
Benny Kozlic will be the Irish lead-
off man and second baseman.hElmer
Raba will play defensive right field
and bat second. Frank Gilhooley, a
holdover from last year's squad, will
be in left and bat in the third po-
Batting cleanup for the visitors
will be one of the highest rated
college players in this part of the
country, Johnny Mayo. Mayo's bat-
ting average is close to .500 and he
leads the team in runs-batted-in.
A catcher from the 1942-43 squad
will bat fifth in the lineup, followed
by Ray Petrzelka, a promising first
baseman. Bill Hassett and George
Schneider, both members of last
year's team, will bat sixth and sev-
enth and play at short stop and third
base respectively.
Pitching for the Notre Dame squad
will be Barrett, who has already
notched three wins without encoun-
tering a setback.
The Michigan lineup will remain
the same as it has been for the past
half-dozen games. WaltrKell will
play at third, followed by centerfield-
er Bob Nussbaumer and short stop
Don Robinson.
JackWeisenberger will bat clean-
ip and play in left field.' Tom Ro-
seina, first base, and Bob Chappuis,
the third outfielder ,will follow.
Bon Tomasi will play second and
bat seventh.
In the next to last position will be
Michigan's hardest hitter, Elmer
Swanson, while Cliff Wise will round
out the order.

Net Play-Of fs
Decide Team
For Weekend
Michigan's tennis squad settled
down yesterday to the task of iron-
ing out the kinks that appeared in
last Saturday's close defeat at the
hands of an experienced Chicago
squad, 5-4.
The netmen will complete a series
of important singles challenge
matches today that will probably re-
sult in some minor shifts in the start-
ing lineup for this coming weekend's
tilts with Northwestern, Ohio State
and Minnesota.
Coach Leroy Weir is expected to
make few changes in the first four or
five singles positions, but the num-
ber six slot is still wide open. Com-
peting for this starting berth are
Mickey Dayton, Harold Cook and
Paul Schoenlaub.
Dayton has turned in a creditable
performance in the anchor singles
position in the last two maclhes with
Chicago and Western Michigan,
while Cook appereI as number six
man in the first five meets, compiling
a record of three wins and two de-
feats. Schoenlaub has done quite
wvell in doubles competition and
boasts a record of six wins against
one loss.
Weir, who has been experimenting
with several different doubles com-
binations, hit a bonanza when he
teamed Schoenlaub and Dean Mc-
Clusky to form the number three
duet at the start of the season. These
two lads have compiled~an enviable
record of five victories in five starts
and are certain of seeing a lot more
action together this season.

DETROIT, May 13-0P)-Spotted
six runs in a wild second inning in
which Thornton Lee issued six pass-
es and only one hit - a bunt - the
Detroit Tigers barely lasted through
to nip the Chicago White Sox 6 to 5
here today for their eighth straight
Hal Newhouser, knocked out of the
box for the first time in six starts this
year, allowed 10 hits in seven innings
but Freddie Hutchinson stepped in
to save Hal's fifth win.
Orval Grove hurled two-hit shut-
out ball for 5 2-3 innings after re-
lieving Lee but too much damage
had resulted in the crazy second for
the Sox to overcome the deficit and
avoid their fifth straight defeat.
Lee, who fanned the first two men
to face him, walked seven of the next
11 to hand the Tigers the win, al-
though Chicago had a 10 to four
edge in hits. Detroit's only hits be-f
sides Mayo's drag bunt were McCos-
ky's infield hit in the first inning,
Birdie Tebbetts' double in the sixth
and Greenberg's single to center in
the seventh.

SOUTH BEND, nd., May 13-
Coach Bill Barclay left for Ann
Arbor today singing "There's No
Pace Like Home" after Notre Dame
humbled his golfers, 19-8, on the
South Bend course.
Plagued by the same road jinx that
dogged the basketball team he helped
coach this winter, Barclay's charges
ran into a red hot Irish squad that
fired near par ball to pull away
after being held to a 5 -3 best-ball
Kessler Cards 71
Paced by Dick Whitney who shot
a torrid sub-par 68, Notre Dame
would have slammed singles compe-
tition but for Rog Kessler's par-equal-
ing 71. The lean Ann Arbor freshman
slammed home three birdies in
besting Joe Trotten 3-0. He then
teamed with Pete Elliot in doubles
play to pick up another 21 points
with 76 for a 147 total.
Dave Barclay carded a 72 in the
best-ball round while teaming with
Ed Schalon, but had the misfor-
tune to be in the same bracket with
Whitney when he grabbed his 68.
Schalon cupped a credible 75 but
Whitney's five birdies nuuified both
Wolverine scores. Whitney colled off
to a 75 in singles play but still took
medalist honors with 143. Barclay
had a 76 but bowed to Jim Besen-
felder, 2-1.
Road Jinx Hits Golfers
Bill Ramsey accounted for the
rest of the Michigan points by tying
Whitney on the front nine of their
singles match. His 77 coupled with
Bill Courtright's 78 fell just short
of nipping George Stuhr and Eli
Sehleck who won 2-1. Both Ramsey
and Courtright had 157"for the day.
Pete Elliot playing far off his game
riNGS (J
S 717 North University Ave. o

was high man for the meiet with a
78. 80-158.
The match was typical of Michi-
gan's inability to win away from their
home stamping grounds. It recalled
the Wolverine snarl that produced a
24-3 swamping of Michigan State
here and then died down to a purr
and 20-7 defeat at East Lansing.
Sole exception to the road jinx has
been a narrow 15-12 win over hapless
Unless the Maize and Blue can
shake the jinx, their chances of mov-
ing back into the Conference throne
room they occupied from 1940-44 are
slim since the championship playoffs
are in Minneapolis. Only road game
match remaining before then is with
Detroit. Purdue and Ohio State round
out the pre-playoff schedule by com-
ing here Saturday and Monday.

BROOKLYN, May 13-VP)---The
Brooklyn Dodgers shoved three runs
across the plate in the sixth inning
today on a hit and two errors to
break a 3-3 tie and defeat the Phila-
delphia Phillies, 6-3.
The victory increased Brooklyn's
first Mace margin over the idle St.
Louis Cardinals two full games. It
also was the Dodgers' ninth consecu-
tive victory t Ebbets Field.
