'M,' Indiana, Purdue Vie
In Outdoor Cinder Meet

Michigan's track team will get
its first taste of Big Nine outdoor
competition this afternoon when
they hook up with Indiana and
Purdue in a triangular meet at
Lafayette, Indiana.
In years past the annual af-
fair has been considered a breath-
er for the Wolverines, but this
season a vastly improved Indiana
squad plus a few Michigan injur-
les should make the whole thing
mighty close.
Val Johnson, who is proficient
in the outdoor dashes will be
limited to the quarter mile to-
day because of an injured ankle.
Clay Holland will be limited to
the low hurdles due to a pulled
musle, which has failed to heal
since the indoor season. And
teammate Chari~e Fonville, al-
though favored to win, has bee
r.bothered by a bad back all week
and may be somewhat handi-
capped.
But coach Ken Doherty's big-
gest worry will be from the oppo-
sition, and Indiana in particular.
The Hoosiers sport the best
dashman in the Conference,
Chuck Peters, recent victor over
Texas' Charley Parker in the
Major League
Standings

Drake Relays, and who should
win both the 100 and the 220.
They have Tom Mitchell who
will win the high hurdles with lit-
tle difficulty and Tom Deal, who
has run the mile in 4:14 indoors
this year and is expected to give
Herb Barten quite an argument
in the middle distances.
Also running for the Hoosiers
will be Jim DeWitt, last year's
conference two mile champ out-
doors, and Elmer Prifogle, another
formidable middle distance man.
Among Purdue's Boilermakers
apt to cut into Michigan's total
are pole vaulter Larry Busby,
who has already gone 13 feet
nine inches this season.
Doherty is taking a full team of
22 men totLafayette in quest of
its first outdoor victory.
As in the past therWolverine
mainstays will be Herb Barten
and Charlie Fonville and Mile re-
lay quartet of Val Johnson, Joe
Hayden, George Shepherd, and
Barten.
Gymmen Enter
OlympicTrials
Newt Loken, Wolverine gym-
nastic mentor will lead a selected
group of Maize and Blue muscle
men into the National A.A.U. and
Olympic Gymnastic Trials at Penn
State College today.
The trampoline event will be
the only one entered by Michigan
men.
Bob Schoendube, Big - Nine
champion, will lead the Wolverine
contingent. Entered also are Dave
Lake and Edsel Buchanan, ineligi-
ble freshman, who will compete
unattached.
Loken, ex-Minnesota great, and
former AAU and NCAA tumbling
champion, has been invited to
perform his trampoline comedy
act by Gene Wettstone, Penn
State gym coach and Secretary of
the Olympic Committee.
The act, famous in the Michi-
gan area, which qualifies Loken
as a comedian as well as a gym-
nast, has been billed as a feature
attraction.

Wikel Leads 'M' Atta
TeamsPair Off for
By IIRB RUSKIN
Pitching what was easily his
best game of the season, Art Dole
set a strong Ohio nine down with
only five hits yesterday afternoon,
as the Wolverines gained an easy
3-0 triumph over the Buckeyes.
While Michigan got only five
safeties, they made them count
four, figuring in the scoring.
Howard Wikel was the Wolver-
ine star both at bat and in the
field, contributing two run scor-
ing singles to the cause and mak-
ing several fine plays from his
shortstop position.
Morrison Scores First
The Wolverines got their first
run in the fourth inning when
Ralph Morrison lead off with a
bunt single past the pitcher. Ted
Kobrin put him in scoring posi-
tion with a perfect bunt in front
of the pitcher's box. He remained
on second while Jack Weisen-
burger sent a sizzling line drive to
the center fielder and scored on
Wikel's single to right.
Their second tally came two
innings later, when they put to-
gether two hits ,and a walk for a
run. Again Morrison provided the
tally, leading off with a walk and
moving to second on Kobrin's
sharp single to left.
Both runners held their bases
when Weisenburger fouled deep
to the left fielder. Morrison then
scored on Wikel's second hit of the
day. Kobrin was nailed by center
fielder Ray Gebhardt on a perfect
throw, as he tried to go from first
to third on the hit.
Chappuis Triples
Gebhardt also cut down another
Wolverine run in the fifth frame,
when he fired a strike into the
catcher to cut down Bob Chap-
puis who was trying to score after
the putout. Chappuis got on with
a triple.
Michigan ended their scoring
for the day in the seventh inning,
solely due to Dom Tomasi's base
running. Leading off with a base
on balls, Tomasi stole second and
moved over to third on Chappuis'
fly to the first baseman. He then
camnehome on Hal Raymond's fly
to left.
Dole was in trouble only twice
in the game, and both times he
bore down and escaped without
any damage.
Buckeyes Threaten
The Buckeyes first threatened
in their half of the fifth inning
when Alex Verdova got an infield
hit. Aernie popped to Weisen-
Locke Leads
Capitol Open
WASHINGTON, April 30-(/P)-
Another way-below-par round to-
day-this time, a 66--gave Bobby
Locke a four stroke halfway lead
in the National Capitol Open Golf
Tournament.
The South African was far too
good for the others'as he almost
made it a one-man show. His'
seven under par 65 yesterday
earned him a two-shot edge after
the opening round. Today's 66
brought a 36-hole total of 131--
four big strokes ahead of Skip
Alexander's 69-66-135.
One stroke back was Cary Mid-
dlecoff of Memphis with 136.
Ben Hogan, of Hershey, Pa.,
tacked a 70 today on to his open-
ing 68 for 138 and fourth place.

smashed a line single to center,
sending Verdova to third and tak-
ing second himself on the throw

It was here that Dole really
turned on the heat, retiring both
the third baseman Wills and Geb-
hardt on strikes.
Ohio got men on second and
third again in the seventh frame
when Aernie and Perini repeated
the previous performance with
two out. However, the Buckeyes
could not get a man across as
Wikel made a beautiful play on
Wills' grounder to get him at first.

PUBLIC RELATIONS
EXPERIENCE?
What is this thing called Public Relations?
The fastest growing, most interesting and most important single
phase of modern business success is public relations. The publicity,
promotion, and sale of any commodity, be it an industrial product, book
circulation, political candidate or some simple form of everyday life,
depends entirely on your ability to gain public good will for yourself
and your product.
Public relations is not hokum--neither is it unrelated ideas, no
matter how good they may sound. To succeed in Public Relations you
must know your public through a combination of experience and in-
stinct; you must know your product and what it can do. These factors
are basic. The third factor is PublicRelations technique, the publicity
and promotion by which you can best sell yourself and your product.
These techniques are many and varied. One will work best for you
today and another tomorrow.
You must be born with the flare of understanding human interest;
have the psychology of a salesman, We can teach you the rest.
Ask yourself this question: How much do I know about the '48
Ensiin? If you have heard a great deal about it in a variety of ways
then we have put our message across to you. We sell Ensians but our
office is also a laboratory in Public Relations techniques. Our sales-
men, publicity writers and promotion men are preparing for later life
with the know how to sell product, self and public.
Nowhere on Campus, in class or out, call you, the Michigan Stu.
dent, gaiu so much in Public Relations experience.

JV Golf Squad
Avenges Loss,
Downs Normal
By DAVE MILLER
The Wolverine jayvee golf squad
gained its second straight tri-
umph of the season, plus a size-
able amount of revenge, by trounc-
ing the Michigan Normal varsity
131/2-41/yesterday afternoon on
the home course.
Avenging the loss suffered at
the hands of the Hurons ini the
first match of the year, Coach
Bill Ludolph's boys took three
out of the four singles matches
and both best ball events to pre-
serve their perfect record on the
University links.
Jerry Weiler's sparkling score
of 77 was the outstanding per-
formance of the day, which saw a
strong wind hamper the effective-
ness of the players. Weiler shut
out Don Hockrein who recorded
an 80 in the second singles match,
3-0.
In the number one match, Keith
LeClaire once again was bested by
Normal's ace, Earl Burt. Burt's
victory was less convincing this
time as he carded an 83, just one
stroke under LeClaire.
John McCloy and Bill Telfer
came up with scores in the low
80's to subdue Howard Slocum
and Bob Nichols in the othier
individual contests. Michigan's
number one best ball duo of
Weiler and LeClaire scored the
only other shutout of the after-
noon over Burt and Hockrein.
In the final event, McCloy and
Telfer defeated Slocum and
Nichols.
The jayvees left early this
morning for Bowling Green where
they will meet the Falcons in a
six-man match. Joining the vie-
torious quartet for the Wolverines
will be Harvey Jones and Bob
Keiser.

ATHENS, O., April 30-(IP)-
Ohio University choked off a ninth
inning rally by Michigan State
and won their baseball contest 5-
3 today.
The Spartans, trailing 5-1 in
the ninth, rallied on George Pav-
lick's homer with one man aboard.
But with the bases loaded, Mark
Wylie fanned the batter and got
the last man out on a fly ball.

LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 30 -,
()-Seven three-year-olds today
were entered in tomorrow's 74th+
running of the Kentucky Derby.
The entries included two ter-
rific race horses and four other
animals with the required number
of legs and ears.
The pair of bullets, of course,
are Citation and Coaltown, the
amazing entry from Calumet
Farm. They are expected by most
observers to fight it out down the
stretch for top money in the rich
classic for three-year-olds.
This duo has established itself
such a strong favorite, that
Churchill Downs officials an-
nounced only straight betting in
the mutuels will be allowed.
It will be the first time since
1905 that win betting only has
been accepted on a Kentucky
Derby. The limit was established
by Col. Matt Winn, Downs presi-
dent, because of the certainty of
a "minus" pool if place and show
betting are permitted.
In addition to the Calumet

Out of Trials
Bob Betzig and Jim Smith, the
Wolverines two entries in the
Olympic wrestling tryouts at
Ames, Iowa, were eliminated after
the third round of matches yester-
day.
Only five Michigan wrestlers, all
from Michigan State, remain in
the running for the 16 berths on
the U. S. Olympic team.
Under Olympic rules a grap-
pler is eliminated when he re-
ceives five "bad points." A man
losing by a fall or unanimous de-
cision receives three bad points.
Zero is a perfect score, meaning
the competitor won by a fall or a
forfeit.
One National AAU Champion,
Arnold Plaza, has been eliminated
any only ten wrestlers are left
with perfect scores to date.

each to cover the entry fee. were
Ben Whitaker's My Request, W,
L. Brann's Escadru, R. W. Mc-
Ilvain's Billings and Mrs. John P.
Adams' Grandpere.
Tomorrow's field will be the
smallest derby field since 1907,
when Pink Star ran off from five
rivals. With six stepping the
mile and a quarter, the net pay-
off to the winner will be $83,400.
Assault pocketed a record $96,400
two years back, when 17 ran.
The prospect of a skimpy field
and the strong possibility that the
boxholders will witness no more
than a match race between stable-
mates boasting the same pappy,
Bull Lea, didn't seem to be keep-
ing anybody home.
Louisville's hotels are packed to
their usual Derby capacity, which
is far beyond the point of comfort,
and the city's sidewalks and
streets could use stretching to
about twice their present width.
Col. Matt Winn, who runs the
Derby, talks casually of a probable
crowd of 100,000.
Gates will open soon after dawn,
and the first race on the Derby
program is scheduled at 11:30
a.m. (CST). The big event,
seventh on the card, is down for
4:30 p.m., somewhat earlier than
in past years.
