Illini Take Eight Firsts .
For 80-49 Track Win
McKenley Paces Illinois Taking 440, 220;
Osgood, Fonville Set Pace for Wolverines
The University of Illinois track team splashed their way to a
lop-sided 80-49 victory over the fighting Michigan Wolverines on a
muddy Ferry Field track yesterday afternoon.
The Illini were sparked by the brilliant performance of "hurry-
ing" Herb McKenley, who ran the quarter mile in 48.4 seconds and
then came back to win the 220 yd. dash. McKenley's performance in
the "440" was exceptionally fine considering the sloppy condition of
the track.
Eight first places went to the National Intercollegiate champions

Michigan's sprint artist, Val
Johnson, pushed Herb McKenley
all the way to finish second in the
"220" and also finished in th(
number two position behiid Bill
Mathis in the "100."
Barten Takes '880'
Herb Barten, Wolverine indoor
half-mile champion, edged team-
mate Chuck Low by a step to
win the "880" in 1:57.7. Barten
finished third behind Illinois' Bob
Rehberg in the mile.
In the afternoon finale the Wol-
verines regained some prestige by
turning in a surprising victory in
the mile relay in 3:25.5. Mel Det-
wiler led off for Michigan, fol-
lowed by George Shepherd who
opened up on the second lap and
provided the Wolverines with a
15-yard lead. Val Johnson ran
third and relinquished almost ten
Dick Forrestel and Ilini Bob
Rehberg fought a terrific duel in
the final lap. Forrestel was able
to maintain a five-yard lead, how-
ever, to bring the Wolverines out
on top.
Because of the rain, three field
events were held in Yost Field
House, all completely dominated
by Illinois. Pole vaulter Bob Rich-
ards turned in the best perform-
ance of the year as he cleared the
bar at 14 feet 3%, inches. Although
it was the best vault ever regis-
tered in the field house, it was not
allowed as an official record be-
cause of the fact that this is the
outdoor season and Richards has
had the benefit of two extra
months practice beyond the ter-
mination of the indoor season.
Dwight Eddleman emerged vic-
torious in the high jump, clearing
6 feet 4 inches, while another Illi-
ni, Don Leuthold, took first place
honors in the broad jump with
a leap of 23 feet 4 inches.
The Wolverines failed to place
in the two-mile,. due to the ab-
sence of Captain Charles Birdsall,
who is Conference champion. Il-
linois' John Twomey won the dis-
tance grind in 9:41.3.

The Chicago Alumni Award,
given annually to the Wolverine
Wistert Wins
Yearly Trophy
The name of Wistert rings out
again on the Michigan football
scene, as brother Alvin, third
member of the famous Wistert
family was awarded the Chicago
Alumni trophy for showing the
greatest improvement in spring
Like.Francis and Albert, he
puts his 6 ft. 3 in., 220 lb. frame
to work at the tackle position, but
unlike his brothers, "Moose" is
the first; of the clan to win this
trophy. Wistert is a transfer stu-
dent from Boston University,
where he held down the staring
berth at tackle last fall, playing
50 minutes regularly.

gridder showing the greatest im-
provement in spring practice, be-I
gan its long and interesting his-
tory in 1925.
Its purpose, according to Meyer
Morton who made the first andI
all subseauent presentations, is toj
stimulate interest among the can-
didates during spring practice,
when the glamour and thrills of
competition are absent.
Trophy Awarded to Newcomers
Although no such provision has
been specifically stated, it has be-
come the custom to award the
trophy to tryouts who are spend-
ing their first year on the campus.
As a result, nobody has come up
with the prize more than once.
The first gridder to take the cup
was Ray B&;r of Louisville, Ken.-
tucky. Today he is a highly re-
spected coach in the Louisville
school system.
Ccithaml Among Winners
Since 1925, many footballers up-
on. whom Michigan looks back
with pride have walked off with

the honors. Herman Everhardus,
the 1932 selection, was the lead-
ing Big Ten scorer in 1933;
George Rich, who took the award
in 1926, captained the 1929 out-
fit; Mervin Pregulman, the 1942
winner, was chosen to the All-
American team of 1943.

Major League Roundup

Braves Lead League
NEW YORK, May 17-(P)-The
Boston Braves are the new oc-
cupants of first place in the Na-
tional League today, but most of
the attention is focused on the
amazing New York Giants who
are breathing on the necks of the
tribe with five straight conquests
in their western invasion.
The Braves moved past the Chi-
cago Cubs by shading the Card-
inals 3-2 in St. Louis to salvage
one game of their three-game
series. Phil Masi's home run and
triple were good for two runs,
enough to enable southpaw War-
"n Spahn to register his sixth
victory without a defeat.
The Giants moved into second
place by percentage points over
the Cubs by handing the Bruins
their third straight lacing, 3-1.
A two-run rally in the 11th won
for the Giants with southpaw
Dave Koslow winning a hurling
duel from rookie righthander
Doyle Lade. Pinch hitter Joe La-
fata's single brought in the tie-
breaking run for the Giants.
Pirates Blank Dodgers
Pittsburgh moved into fourth
place by shutting out the Brook-

lyn Dodgers 4-0 and the Philadel-
phia Phils retained sixth place
behind the Dodgers by finishing
off the Cincinnati Reds 6-3.
Tigers Shade A's, 2-
The Detroit Tigers, behind the
eight-hit pitching of Hal New-
houser, won another close one
from the Philadelphia Athletics
2-1 to increase their first placei
margin in the American League.
A home run by Hoot Evers in
the top of the ninth broke up a
scoreless pitching duel between
Newhouser and Philadelphia's Joe
Coleman. The blow, with Pat
Mullin on base, gave Newhouser,
who fanned 10, a 2-0 lead. The A's
loaded the bases with none out in
their half of the ninth, but could
manufacture only a single run as!
Newhouser registered his third

LAFAYE'TE, Ind., May 17 -
The Wolverine golfers, defending
Big Nine champions, got a bitter
taste today of the Purdue course
where the Conference meet will
be held this year, as the power-
ful Boilermakers hammered out a
261-9' victory to serve notice
of their title hopes.
Carding a three over par 74,
Ed Schalon captured the lone
individual match for the Maize
and Blue and then teamed with
Paul O'Hara in putting together
two blazing nines totaling 69 to
win Michigan's only best ball
The sub-par rounds by Fred
Wampler, Indianapolis freshman,
established a new competitive
course record and a spectacular
hole-in-one on the fly by Gene
Nemeth, South Bend veteran,
were among the scoring high-
lights for Purdue's well-balanced
golf squad.
Nemeth's hole-in-one, which
found the ball landing squarely
in the cup, was scored on the
110-yard twelfth hole during
Sox Bow to Browns
The Sox bowed to St. Louis in
Boston, 3-1. Ellis Kinder limited
the Red Sox to six blows in his
first start for the Browns, who
thus took the odd game of a three
game series with Boston. The
Yankees spotted the White Sox
three runs in each game but came
back to win behind Frank Shea
and Spud Chandler. Joe DiMag-
gio's ninth inning homer broke
up the first game.
After tying the Indians 1-1 in
the last half of the ninth,, the
Senators scored the winning run
in the 10th when pinch hitter
Sherry Robertson singled to bring
in Gerry Priddy from second.

which the Boilermakers won, 8 1,/

Wampler, paired with Nemeth
in the morning, had a medal
round of 69 including a sensa-
tional 32 on the back nine, and
the Boilermaker twosome ended
up with a best ball of 64 as com-
pared with a par of 71.
Wampler came right back in
the afternoon individual matches
with a 68 to trim Dave Barclay,
Michigan's number one player,
who carded a 72, 3 to 0.
The Boilermakers, smart i n g
from their lone defeat of the sea-
son at the hands of Illinois in an
upset last Thursday, left little
doubt of their superiority, win-
ning two and tying one of the
four morning foursomes, and los-

Diamond Idol
It's C:reenbe#'
Jackie Robinson, first Negro play-

picked a diamond hero--rival first

Pittsburgh Pirates.
Here's why:
Robinson and Greenberg collid-
ed in a play at first base dur-
ing the current Brooklyn Dodger-
Pirate series. The next time
Jackie came down to the sack,
Hank said:
"I forgot to ask you if you were
hurt in that play."
Assured that Robinson was un-
harmed, Greenberg added:
"Stick in there. You're doing
fine. Keep your chin up."
This encouragement from an
established diamond great heart-

subject of reported anti-racial

he has undergone "jockeying -
some of it pretty severe."
