Undefeated Ohio State Squad
Wolverines Hold Edge in Field Events, 440;
Buckeyes Favored To Cop High Hurdle Race
By JACK MARTIN
Wolverine track fans have their only chance of the outdoor season to
see the Michigan thinclads in action when they clash with an unbeaten
Ohio State squad, gunning for its first win over a Maize and Blue team, this
afternoon at Ferry Field.
Pre-meet dope sheets indicate a photo-finish at the wire. State's Carl
Baynard and Stu Reid and Wolverines Val Johnson and Horace Coleman
have all been clocked close to 10 seconds flat in the 100, and the sprints
can go either way.

Irish Net Team
In Finale Tod
Usual Line-up Slated
To Start at South Bend
By CHUCK LEWIS
In their final match of the sea-
son, the Michigan tennis team will
meet the Notre Dame netters this
afternoon in South Bend.
The Wolverines will vie for their
ninth victory in 13 starts which in-
clude five Conference wins and two
losses to Illinois and Chicago by
scores of 6-3 and 5-4, respectively.
Hersh Plays at One
The Weirmen enter the Irish
match fresh from a 5-4 victory over
the Spartans ofMichigan State. This
was the sixth meet of the season that
ended by this score, with Michigan
taking four of them.
Coach Leroy Weir will use his usual
Conference lineup against Notre
Dame. Playing at the position that
he has held throughout the entire
season, Jack Hersh will compete at
number one singles. In facing Bill
Tully for Notre Dame, Hersh will be
trying to end his season with a better
than .500 average. To date he holds
a six and six record.
Completing his schedule at the
number two slot, Bill Mikulich will
be opposed by George Ratterman,'
who is competing in his third year
of varsity tennis play at Notre Dame.
Mikulich has seven wins to his cre-
dit this year.
Fred Wellington, who was unable
to compete in the State match be-
cause an ankle injury suffered dur-
ing the Minnesota meet, will pro-
bably be ready to go by match time
and will again be Michigan's num-
ber three entrant. Wellington will try
to get back into the win column af-
ter losing his last four matches. Pre-
vious to the Northwestern meet last
week, Wellington had won his first
seven contests of the season.
Dean McClusky and Jim Evans will
hold down the number four and five
singles positions. They will be trying
for their ninth and seventh tri-
umphs of the season, respectively.
Seeded in the number six slot will
be the reliable Hal Cook, who will
be out to better his eight and two
Weir will again use Evans and'
Hersh in the number one doubles
position. This is the combination
usually used in Conference compe-
tition with Mikulich and Welling-
ton handling the number two as-
The number three duo will be Mc-
Clusky and Paul Schoenlaub. This
pair has played consistently well to-
gether throughout the season as is
indicated by their record of seven
wins and two setbacks in the three
Buffalo, N.Y., May 24-(P)-Joe
McCarthy confirmed tonight that
he had resigned as manager of
the New York Yankees and gave
as his reason that his health
would not allow him to continue
in the position.
The appointment of Bill Dickey,
New York Yankees' catching star
since 1928, as that club's new
manager was announced in Bos-
ton tonight by President-General
Manager Larry MacPhail.

Sox Lose Last Tilt
With Dykes As Head
CHICAGO, May 24-(tP)-Hal New-
houser fashioned his seventh victory
of the season against one defeat to-
night when he held the Chicago
White Sox to eight hits to give the
Detroit Tigers a 3 to 1 victory.
Tonight's game was the last ap-
pearance as manager of Jimmie
Dykes, who tomorrow will turn over
the reins to Ted Lyons.
A crowd of more than 41,000 saw
the game, the first White Sox night
contest of the season.
Included in the 10-hit attack
against Orval Grove was Hank Green-
berg's seventh homer of the season,
a prodigious drive that cleared the
left field scoreboard.
The Tigers punctured Grove for
three hits to get their first run in the
third inning and then scored their
second run in the fifth on singles by
Lake, Mayo and Evers.

Out First Game,
Mich ian Lead
Wise, Block To Hurl
Michigan's and Purdue's baseball
teams hope to play a doubleheader
beginning at 1:30 p.m. today on Fer-
ry Field, after rain washed out yes-
terday's game with the Wolverines
leading 2-0 as they caine to bat in
the third inning.
Yesterday's rain marked the fourth
straight time that the weather has
forced the playing of a Saturday
twin bill. The Wolverines split the
two bargain bills that they managed
to play while the third series, with
Indiana, had to be cancelled.
Michigan Faces Claseman, Kemp
The Boilermakers will undoubtedly
stick to their mound choice of yes-
terday, Irv Claseman, in the opener
while George Kemp is slated to hurl
in the nightcap.
Cliff Wise will probably be on the
mound for the home team in the
opener with Earl Block drawing the
starting assignment in the second
game of the afternoon. It is possible
that Bliss Bowman may see some
action, should Wise not be able to
come back after pitching three inn-
Claseman Strikes Out Five
The Wolverines managed to get to
Claseman for a pair of runs in the
second inning, in spite of the fact
that the right handed speed ball
artist struck out five of the six men
After the first four men coming to
bat struck out, Tom Rosema hit a
triple into left field. Chappuis walked
and stole second before Elmer Swan-
son came through with a single over
third base. The Michigan backstop
was out trying to stretch his hit
into a double after the two runs had
crossed the plate.

Coach Barclay Shuffles Lineup
For Golf Meet with Detroit Squad
In an effort to shake off Michigan's
road jinx, Golf Coach Bill Barclay
has announced a revised lineup to
oppose the University of Detroit Ti-
The new lineup wil see Roger Kess-
ler moved up into the number two
position to replace Pete Elliott who
has had consistent trouble regaining
his early season form. Bill Courtright
takes over Kessler's old number three
spot ahead of Bill Ramsey. -Hank
Zimmerman, a newcomer to varsity
competition, and Jerry Devries look
like best bets for the third bracket.
The Wolverines swamped Detroit
earlier in the season, 251/2 to 11/, and
rate as heavy favorites despite their
inability to win on foreign greens.
This match will be the last tune-up
before the Conference Meet at Minn-
eapolis May 31.
