Rehberg jumped Earl Mitchell o
Indiana coming off the last turi
and won in 4:15.5. Queller lec
during the first part of the race
dropped back, and then came or
to nip John Twomey of Illinois
for third place. . The Wolverin'
was clocked in about 4:16.8.
Holland Beats McKeney

nois in a blanket sixty finish, the
world's indoor 440 yard record.
holder came back to win his spe-
cialty in 48.3, witl;1 Mal Whitfield
of Ohio second, and Dick Forrest-
el, of the Maize and Blue coming
out of nowhere off the last turr
to take third. Michigan and Ohio
were tied for second at this point
with six credits each.
Just as Bill Porter, of North-
western tied the conference rec-
ord in the 70-yard high hurdles,
Wolverine Bob Fancett was grab-
bing himself a fifth place in the
broad jump, with Miller of Purdue
winning with a 24 ft. 5% inch
Birdsall Second
Then came the two-mile with
Birdsall snatching second and Rog
Kessler of Michigan coming
through with a fourth. Birdsall
battled Don Gehrmann of Wis-
consin all the way but the Bad-
ger went on to win in 9:30 flat.
Michigan roared into second
place at this point when Barten
and Fonville came through with
their brilliant performances. Just
as the great, shot putter was
breaking the record on his last
putt the gun for the half mile
run went off and Barten was off
on his record - tying jaunt. He
collared Indiana's Tom Deal in
the back stretch, poured on the
fastest kick, seen in these parts
in a long time, and came on to
win by five yards, Queller copping
the fifth slot.
Walker Evens Score
As Walker of Illinois evened up
his duel with the Wildcat's Por-
ter by winning the 70-yard low
hurdles in 7.9 seconds the Wolver-
ine's tenaciously hung on to sec-
ond place. The Buckeyes did not
pick up any points as Bill Rich-
ards of Illinois won the poe vault,
with three Wisconsin vaulters
right behind him.
With just the relay and the
high jump left, the Wolverine's
were in the runner-up slot by one
point margin over the Buckeye's.
Illinois had all but sewed it up.
With fastest times determining'
the paces, Illinois, Michigan, and
Ohio were all seeded together in-1
to the second section of the race.
Harris Ties for Fourth
Just before the final race, began,
Bob Harris, of Michigan, and Dick
Maxwell, of the Buckeye's, tied
with two others for fourth place
in the 'high jump, with 6 ft. 3
inch leaps. With the Wolverines
holding on their one-point lead
over Ohio, the relay began.
Ohio got off to an early lead and
was never headed, in an indescrib-
able anchor leg battle between
Shepperd of Michigan, McKenley,
of Illinois, and Whitfield, of Ohio
State, hurryin' Herb of the Illi-
nois cut down Ohio's lead and the
three teams went into the last lap
lead locked.
Whitfield Wins
The pace was too much for the
Illini speedster and Whitfield
came on at the end to overtake
him. Shepperd, running a fine

anchor leg, bore down on McKen-
ley on the last stretch but could
not quite make it.
Two other big nine marks were
snapped and one equalled. Don
Miller of Purdue leaped 24 ft. 5%/
inches on the first day of the meet
to break the broad jump record,
and Dike Eddleman, of Illinois,
soared 6 ft. 7% inches to crack the
high jump mark. Bill Porter, ,of
Northwestern equalled the high
hurdle record with a 8:5 second

any young man in the business.

paltry 195 pounds. His competi-
tion for the job in which he un-
der-studied Hlank Greenberg last
studied Hank Greenberg last
summer consists of three rookies
-John McHale, 6 ft., 3 in., 200-
pounder from Buffalo in the
International League; George
Vico, 6 ft., 3 in., 200-pounder
from Portland in the Pacific
Coast League; and Robert Moy-
er, 6 ft., 2 in., 210-pound prod-
ust of Dallas in the Texas
While these three rookies are
power hitters, it is useless to ex-
pect any one of the three to fill
Hank Greenberg's shoes. None of
the trio hit .300 in the minors last
year ,but Moyer and McHale are
R.B.I. men who pounded out 24
and 25 home runs respectively.
Combined, they might reach
Hank's 1946 total, but you can't
play two men on first base at the
same time.
Cullenbine is still the logical
choice, since he led all Tigers
with a .335 batting average last
summer. He is also a capable
outfielder and could be used in
right field if one of the young

Bob Sohl averaged an earlier de-
feat at the hands of defending

Buckeyes in the finals of the 200-
yard breast stroke as he covered
the distance in his best recorded

1946-47 hockey season, the Michi-
ga sextet bowedi to an inspired
Miligan Tech squad, 3-1. last
night before a capacity crowd at
the Coliseum.
The two evenly matched teams
split a pair of games this weekend
by identical scores, which gave the
Wolverines a successful season of
13 victories, seven defeats, and a
tie with Minnesota.
Goalies Brilliant
Both goalies, Phil Waite for the
victors and Michigan's Jack Me-
Donald turned in superb perform-
ances to keep the score down, The
Wolverines' failure to cover ini
front of the net on occasion caused
their defeat by the fast skating
Defense played a big part in the
contest as the rear guardsmen 9f
both teams were constantly bot-
tling up the offensive rushes of
their opponents. Captain Connie
Hill closed his second season at
the helm of the Maize and Blue
pucksters by playing his -usual
steady game of defense.
Scoreless First Period
The two teams battled to a
scoreless first period. Back-check-
ing and covering in front of the
net was shown at its best during
this stanza. There was but one
shot on goal in the first ten min
The first 15 minutes of the mid-
dle period were somewhat repeti-
tious of the first stanza being
characterized by good passing and
good defensive work on the part of
both teams. Burt Petaja, toe
Huskies high scorer, combined
with Jim Ruhl to break the ice at
17:42. Ruhl took the puck over
the blue line, beat the defense and
passed to Petaja, who put it in
the corner of the net to end the
period with Tech sporting a one
goal .lead.
Michigan Unable To Score
Michigan dominated the first
part of the final frame of the sea-
son and could not dent Tech's goal.
but George Wanhainen made it
2-0 after taking a pass from Kest-

up the game to terminate a two
man rush with Ruhl at 15:18.
