To WalkA wayWith Title
Field Events Expected To Give WolVerines
Most Points in Quest for Runner-Up Spot
By BILL MATNEY
Coach Ken Doherty's 16-man outdoor track squad will leave Ann Arbor
this morning en route to Champaign, Illinois, for the running of the Big
Ten Conference Track and Field Championships, which will be held tomor-
row and Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
For the first time in several years, the Wolverines, perenially strong
contenders for championship honors, will be relegated to a lower position
in the pre-meet dope sheets, while host Illinois, with its vaunted individual
stars and depth of good material, will be favored to complete a sweep of

Michigan Fortified in Field Events
Michigan is expected to gain most
of its points in the field events be-
hind the efforts of Chuck Fonville
and George Ostroot in the discus and
shot put, and Bob Harris in the high
jump. Fonville will match heaves
with-Bill Bangert of Purdue in the
shot, and should compare favorably
with the giant Boilermaker who has
beenerratic inthis performances to
date. Ostroot, throwing the discus
as well as the shot, will find Min-
nesota's Fortune Gordien, who un-
corked a superb 161 ft. heave last
week against Illinois, favored to cap-
ture top honors in this event. The
duel between these two heavies
should prove to be one of the high-
lights of the field contests.
Despite the fact that Dwight Eddle-
man is expected to take the high
jump with inches to spare, Michigan'
Bob Harris whose 6 ft. 4 in. leap i
two inches shy of the Illini's best
jump, will press Eddleman and
should wind up a staunch second.
Bob Baker, Wolverine broad jump
entrant, will find this event filled
with athletes who haveerecorded
jumps in excess of 22 and 23 ft
Heading the list will be Wisconsin',
Lloyd LaBeach, the Jamaican flash
who will also run the 100 and 220
Purdue's Daily, and White of Ohi
State. Baker's best jump thus fai
is 22 ft.
Two-mile Run To Be Close
Indiana's Earl Mitchell will pro-
bably double in the two-mile run.
and if so, will be favored to wrap u
the title if he can defeat Minnesota's
Floyd Foslein. Mitchell's best clock-
ing in his other specialty, the one
mile run, is on a par with that of
Bob Rehberg of Illinois. Other men
expected to make the longer race
a close contest will be John and
Vic Twomey of Illinois, Don Wash-
ington of OSU, Ed Johnson and Dean
Voegtlen of Michigan. Both Johnson
and Voegtlen have excellent chances
of snatching valuable points.
Michigan's mile relay quartet of
Val Johnson, Ron Soble, Horace
Coleman and Hugh Short will again
furnish the Illinois foursome the
best inspiration for running. Herb
McKenley's anchor leg, as in the
past, will give the Illini the edge in
this final running event of the day.

Tomorrow in Minneapolis the Wol-
verine golf squad will come to grips
with all the Big Ten linksmen in the
opening session of the 1946 Confer-
ence championships play-offs.
The pre-tourney favorites are
Ohio State, last year's titlists,
Northwestern, and Michigan. The
Wolverines broke even in two
matches against the Buckeyes and
edged Northwestern in their single
encounter.
Michigan's golfers will go into the
weekend competition with a not-too
impressive record of eight wins and
three defeats: This includes losses
to Notre Dame and Michigan State,
however, and these two teams will
not oppose the Wolverines in the
weekend play. Their wins over Pur-
due and Illinois, combined with vic-
tories over Ohio State and North-
western, give the Wolverines a 4-1
record against the teams they will
face tomorrow and Saturday.
The loss to Michigan is the only
setback Northwestern's Wildcats
have suffered over the season play,
and they will carry the best record
into the matches. Ohio State's de-
fending champions sailed through
their first seven matches without
a defeat, before Northwestern stop-
ped them in a 14-13 contest. This
loss and the one to Michigan in
their return match are the only
defeats for the powerful Buckeye
squad.
One of the most interesting fea-
tures of the Conference play-offs;
will be the competition among Ohio's
Howard Baker, 1945 national medal-
ist winner, Manuel de la Torre of
Northwestern, and Wolverine Dave
Barclay.
Coach Bill Barclay is taking six
men to Minneapolis. Dave Barclay
heads the list, followed by Pete El-
liott, Bill Ramsey, Rog Kessler, Bill
Courtright, and Ed Schalon, although,
not necessarily in that order.

Illini Netters Unbeaten
III Big Ten Competition
By EV ELLIN
Michigan's varsity tennis team will
be out to defend their Big Ten title
as the annual Conference meet gets
underway today on the Northwes-
tern varsity courts at Evanston, Illi-
nois.
The Wolverine's strongest opposi-
tion will undoubtedly come from the
Illinois netmen who boast a clean
slate in Conference competition this
season. The Illini's Benny Migdow{
and Roger Downs stand out as two
of the toughest racketmen in theI
Big Ten.
Migdow Leads Illini
Migdow, brilliant freshman south-
paw, defeated Michigan's Bill Miku-
lich earlier in the season in two hard
fought sets, 8-6 and 10-8, while
Downs, former Big Ten singles
champ, nipped Jack Hersh, 4-6, 6-4,
6-4. Illinois has a big threat entered
in the middle divisions in the person
of Ray Von Spreckelson.
Bobby Jake of Northwestern will
be another obstacle in the way to
the crown. Jake. who starred on the
Wildcat team as a sophomore in
1941, has compiled an enviable rec-
ord this season and holds a slight
edge over Hlersh by virtue of his 2-6,
6.-2, 6-4 victory over the Wolverine
lead-off man. The Wildcat's bid for
the title will be strengthened by the
presence of Larry Daly and Bob
Norman, two experienced competi-
tors.
Maroons Well Balanced
The Maroons have put a lot of work
into their remaining Big Ten team
with the result that Chicago boasts
a well balanced squad despite the
lack of any individual stars. The
Tully brothers are the only two who
stand a good chance to pick up some
points.
Ohio State's hopes will ride with
Aris Franklin, last ,years' Big Ten
singles champ. However, the Buck-
eyes' claim for the crown will pro-
bably end here.
Michigan's Chances Good

CLEVELAND. May 29 - Hal New-
houser limited the Cleveland Indians
to five hits today as the Detroit Tig-
ers took the series finale 4 to 1, giv-
ing them five victories in six starts
against the Tribe.
The Bengals raked three Cleveland
hurlers for eight blows, collecting
three off Allie Reynolds, two off Bob
Lemon and three more off Joe Kra-
kauskas.
A three-run scoring spree in the
third sewed up the game for the
Tigers. The Tigers added a final
tally in the ninth after the Tribe
scored its lone run in the seventh.

BROOKLYN. May 29 - Little Vic
Lombardi became the first National
League pitcher to notch seven vic-
tories today as he throttled the New
York Giants on five hits in pitching
the pace-setting Brooklyn Dodgers
to a 5-1 triumph.
Lombardi's win enabled the Dod-

championships at Evanston.
contenders looks fairly favorable.
With a little luck in the pairings,
the Wolverinesi ight collect some,
valuable points in the upper singles
brackets through the efforts of Hersh
and Mikulich.
Fred Wellington's prospect in the
number three singles division don't
look too promising; however, Dean
McClusky is very likely to triumph
in the number four spot. One of
McClusky's two Conference set-
backs can be attributed to a dis-
placed shoulder, while the other was
to Bob Tully of Chicago by the nar-
row margin of 4-6, 6-3, 4-6.
In the number five bracket Jim
Evans' chances aren't good, while Hal
Cook, Michigan's inumber six man,
could very easily hit pay dirt for
the Wolverines in his division. The
doubles look like a toss-up, and will
probably turn out to be the deciding
factor of the meet.

RUNNER-UP?
Nine Plays Ohio
This Weekend in
Cruejal Series
Keeping its hold on the second
rung of the Big Ten baseball stand-
ings will be uppermost in Michigan's
mind as it closes out its home season
in a two-game series against Ohio
State tomorrow and Saturday.
Wolverine batting power, which
has been in a slump for the past two
weeks, will have to face two of the
best left-handed hurlers in the league,
Bill Schmitter and Ray MacDonald,
as the Buckeyes shoot the works in
an effort to better their fifth posi-
tion in the Conference.
MacDonald Ace Pitcher
MacDonald is one of the two pit-
chers in the league who has a deci-
sion over the Big Ten Champions,
Wisconsin, while his teammate has
three shutouts to his credit all
against non-Big Ten teams. The
Buckeyes have a 3-6 won and lost
record in the Conference this season.
Coach Ray Fisher has decided to
start the same two pitchers who were
slated for last week-end's rained out
series with Purdue. Cliff Wise will
be on the pitching rubber tomorrow,
while Earl Block will get Saturday's
assignment.
Relief Pitchers On Hand
Bliss Bowman, Dick Bodycombe and
"Pro" Boim all will be available for
duty in the two game series on which
the final standings of the Big Ten
depend. Michigan is in a tie with
Illinois at present and must win both
games or slip to third place.
The Buckeyes have their eyes set
on a first divisionnberth and should
they take both ends of the series
could knock theMaize and Blue down
the ladder as far as sixth.
Buckeye Line-up Juggled
Coach Lowell Wrigley has juggled
his lineup in almost every game his
Bucks have played this season, try-
ing to find a team that packs power
at the plate. The probable batting
order for the weekend series finds
Dick Colburn, the leftfielder, batting
first.
Third baseman Keith Phelps will
bat second followed by the team's
two hardest hitters, George and Norb
Ranz, in center and right fields. The
Ranz brothers are hitting the ball
at a near .400 clip.
Michigan will stick to the lineup
that has played in all games so far
this season.
