For Jayvees
Adhering to the economic prin-
ciple that no surplus should go
L to waste, Michigan's sports-mind-
ed athletic officials a nnounced
yesterday that the fii s t junior
varsity golf team in Wolverine
history will take to the links late
this month.
Bert Katzenmeyer, the new
Michigan golf coach, will select'
his jayvee squad from the 80 pros-
pects currently battling for var-
sity posts at the daily practice
sessions being held in the driv-
ing rooms of the Intramural
A score of first-semester fresh-
men have impressed the Wolver-
ine mentor with proper timing
and easy swinging, but under pre-
sent Big Nine athletic require-
ments, the promising flock will
be ineligible for either link squad.
Nevertheless, Coach Katzenmeyer
will face a tough problem in se-
lecting his 15-man jayvee group.
No definite schedule has been
arranged for the Wolverine jay-
vee combination, but invitations
have been sent to Bowling Green,
Alma, Central Michigan, Hope,
Hillsdale, and Michigan Normal.
Commenting upon the forma-
tion of a jayvee team, Coach Kat-
zenmeyer stated: "No longer will
promising golfers be denied col-
legiate competition because of
varsity limitations. Jayvee clubs
will prove of mutual benefit to
all schools concerned. Sharper
competition and greater interest
will result."
Braves Trounce A's
March 18 -- (h') - The Boston
Braves, with all of their regulars
in action, blasted righthander
Jesse Flores for five runs in the
fourth inning today while gain-
ing an 8-4 win over the Philadel-
phia Athletics.

Y NOW most of you are familiar with the name of Herb McKenley
of Illinois. He is the gentleman who has sped over the quarter-
mile cinder route in 46.2 seconds outdoors and 47.9 seconds on the
inside oval--both of which, almost; needless to say, are world marks.
Very few people, however, know the one man in the country
who can take Mr. McKenley just about every time they meet.
Ile is a 24-year old Bronx, N. Y. tailor named Elmore "Pepper"
Harris. Harris attended Morgan State College for three years,
and while there he won the National Collegiate 440-yard cham-
pionship, and began his dominance over McKenley by whipping
the Jamaican, who was then running for Boston College.
IiARRIS spends most of his running time in the so-called "pro-
moters' meets" back East. He rarely runs against the Illini flash,
but when he does, Herb has found the result discomforting.
For example, after McKenley set his world's record of 46.2 in
the outdoor Big Nine meet last May, he was touted as a sure thing
to take Harris in the National AAU Championships in San An-
tonio. Harris won .in 46.3.
McKenley won a special 300-yard run in New York later in the
summer (300 yards is too short for Pepper), but when the Illini thin-
clad went East this year to run in the invitational "600" in the Mill-
rose Games, Harris again sent him home second best.
It seems as though every time McKenley breaks another
record, Harris beats him the next time they meet. This year Mc-
Kenley has lowered the indoor 440-yard record to 47.9 and the
experts are again calling him the greatest quarter-miler in the
United States (at least that was what the announcer down in
Champaign said at the Conference meet recently). Harris runs
against him in two weeks at the Chicago Relays and this writer
thinks he might lick the great Jamaican once again.
WHAT is the jinx which seems to hang over Hurryin' Herb when-
ever he faces this young tailor from the Bronx? McKenley
thought he had broken it-a year ago when he beat Harris for the first
and only time at a distance equal to or longer than a 440. It was in
the "600" special at the Chicago Relays, and at the time he told
Harris, "You'll never beat again." Harris must not have heard him.
Ah, but here's the rub. Harris has one year of college left,
and he has decided he wants to return to get his degree. Where
is he thinking of going next fall? Yes, yes, Illinois.
SUPPOSEDLY his main athletic interest there will be football, since
. he was quite a player at Morgan. However, being familiar with
Harris' feeling towards track; and remembering that the Olypmics
comes up next year, I think he will find time to devote quite a bit to
the spike and cinder game.
