month, performed brilliantly according to Coach Newt Loken.
Although the individual winners of the gymnastic events will rep-
resent the United States in the Olympics, it is not certain if the tramp-
oline will be included. Last night. it was considered a special event,

'M' Club Picnic
Travel Guide
Men going on the 'M' Club pic-
nic today who do not take the
usses leaving from the Engine
Arch at 2:00 P.M. can find their
way to the picnic by following
these directions:
Drive out West Huron (U.S. 12).
:w About one mile from the court-
house, take the right fork (Dexter
f# Road, Route 132). Drive through
Dexter, and under the railroad
bridge, continue (right) on the
paved road (Portage Lake Road)
' to a distance of one and one-half
miles beyond Portage Lake. Turn
left onto a gravel road (Darwin
Road) which leads to another
paved road ('later gravel) (Patter-
son Lake Road.) Continue in same
direction on this road for about
five miles where it ends at a cross-
road, Doyle Road. Take a left
turn. About 200 yards beyond, turn
4 left again onto University Drive.

A rcaro Cops Fourth Wmin

-Citation advanced a long stride
nearer to turf immorality today
when he collared his great young
stablemate, Coaltown, coming in-
to the stretch and won the 74th
running. of the Kentucky Derby
in a breeze.
The champion two-year-old of
last year made it look easy. He let
the previously unbeaten Coaltown
take as much as a six length lead
at the half mile, and then ran hiin
down in a tremendous stretan run
under the skillful ride of Eddie
At the finish, as some 90,-
000 or more spectators cheered
him on, Citation was three and
one-half lengths ahead of his
Calumet Farm running mate.
My Request, owned by Ben
Whitaker of Dallas, Texas, took

third, another length and one
half back.
Seldom has a horserace been run
more true to form. Citation was
the Winterbook favorite, and the
only question in most of the ex-
perts' minds was whether Coal-
town, a sensational sprinter,
might go the full mile and one-
quarter so fast that Citation
would find it impossible to make
up lost ground.
Citation, beaten only twice pre-
viously in 16 races, answered all
the questioning today. After
watching the Calumet comet run,
it is difficult to imagine any real
competition for him either in the
preakness or Belmont stakes, next
hurdle in his path to the hallow-
ed "triple crown.'
Fourth in today's race-if it
might be called that-was Bill-
ings, owned by R. W. Meilvain;
fifth, Grandpere, property of
Mrs. J. Payson Adams; and
sixth, Escadru, the Maryland
hope owned by W. L. Brann.
They might as well have stayed
It was the smallest field to run
in the Derby since 1907, when
the same number started. Citation
by his easy victory added $83,400
to the already bulging Calumet
coffers, and Coaltown's second
place was worth another $10,000.
Arcaro, who set a record by
winning his fourth Derby, laid
the whip to Citation only once,
as they entered the stretch a
quarter of a mile from home.
Before today's runaway, Arcaro
was tied at three Derby triumphs
apiece with Earl Sande and Isaac
Murphy. It was the fourth Derby
winner for Ben Jones, the Calu-
met trainer and general manager,
tying him in that respect with one
"Derby Dick" Thompson.

Netters Bow
'To Powerful
Notre Dame
(Special to The Daily)
SOUTH BEND, Ind., May 1-
Maize and Blue netmen made a
good showing for themselves al-
though they bowed 5-4 to the
Notre Dame tennis squad in South
Bend today.
Coach Dixon's team took three
of the singles matches and only
one of the doubles to rack up their
four points.
In the number one singles Andy
Paton fought Jim Evert for three
sets losing 6-3, 3-6, and 6-3. Paton
commented that Evert had a very
steady game, unspectacular but
with great finesse on the retriev-
ing of seemingly impossible shots.
At the last minute Dixon
switched Mikulich and Otto, play-
ing Otto in the number two slot
against Jerry Evert. Otto was out-
classed in two sets 6-2, 6-3.
However, "Mik" kept his op-
ponent, left hander Bob David, on
the go and was just barely edged
in two sets, 8-6, and 7-5.
The Wolverines ran away with
the last three singles matches,
Hersch beating Joe Brown, Naugle
edging Dave Bittner and MacKay
taking Bob Nagle.
In the doubles matches, the
Irish split up the Evert brothers
and as Paton commented, "It was
the only way they would have
won the matches because the
other men weren't as good as we
Paton and Mikulich bowed to
Jim Evert and David; Otto and
Hersch to Jerry Evert and Bittner,
while Naugle and MacKay easily
beat Brown and Naugle of the
Irish 6-1, 6-2.
Student Wins Title
DETROIT, May 1-(AP)-John
Scopis, 23-year-old University of
Michigan dental student who
learned the game at Detroit's
downtown YMCA, won his first
Michigan handball championship
Scopis upset the veteran Al Zer-
bo, 36 - year - old Detroiter in
straight games, 21-15, 21-13, in
the finals at University of Detroit.

(Special to The Daily)
Lafayette, Ind., May 1-Mich-
igan's outdoor track team began
its drive yesterday to take its
place on the ever growing list of
Wolverine Big Nine champions
for the 1947-48 season.
The Wolverine thinclads open-'
ed the spring cinder season by l
coasting to an easy victory over
Indiana and Purdue in a triangu-
lar meet at Lafayette.
Putting together seven first
places and six seconds, the Mich-
igan squad racked up a total of
68%3 points to win going away
from the Hoosiers and Boilermak-
ers who tallied 48% and 441'
markers respectively.
Barten Shows Way
It was Captain Herb Barten
who showed the way for Mich-
igan. Throwing the same one-two
punch that has made him the Big
Nine's top middle distance man,
-Fortune Gordien of Minne-
sota established a new Amer-
ican college discus record in the
Illinois - Minnesota .Western
Conference track meet today,
heaving the platter 175 feet and
7/8 of an inch. The Gophers
lost the meet, however, 72 to
the slight Wolverine leader romp-
ed to an easy win in the mile in
4 minutes 19.8 seconds, and then
followed with a nifty 1:55.2 half
to put the Maize and Blue on top
once and for all.
Charlie Fonville, world's cham-
pion shot-putter also captured
two blue-ribbons for Ken Doher-
ty's crew by taking the shot with
a mediocre (for him) toss of 53
feet 1 inches, and then booming
the discus 15912 feet to complete
his daily-double.
Johnson Wins
Val Johnson ripped off a
blazing :48.5 quarter mile to grab
top honors in that event; Ed Ul-
vasted tied for the pole-vault
with a 12 foot 10 inch leap, and
Michigan's mile relay team of
Johnson, George Shepherd, Joe
Hayden, and Ed Sergeson captur-
ed the baton passing event by
touring the course in a nifty
It was in the 440 that the Wol-
St. Louis (N) 4, Chicago 0.

Syracuse 3, Toronto 2

verines really took charge of the
day's proceedings. Shepherd and
Hayden followed Johnson across
the line in that order to com-
plete a grand-slam for the Maize
and Blue entry, and to raise Do-
herty's hopes for the conference
shin-dig which comes off late
this month.
Pete Dendrinos gathered points
in two events also. The brawny
footballer captured the third
spots in both the shot and discus.
Wolverine Point-Getters
Justin Williams picked up a
second and Alex Morris a fourth
for Michigan in the two-mile, and
George Vetter followed Barten
across the line in the 880.
Other Wolverine point-getters
were Clay Holland who took
second in the low hurdles, Jim
Morrish who got a fourth in the
100 yard dash, Tom Dolan, who
tied for second in the high jump,
and Varskin Baydarian, surprise
second place winner in the broad
Russ Peters, star Indiana dash
man, won the 100 and 220 yard
sprints with plenty to spare when
he turned in a :09.5 century and
a 20.9 220.
Matt Mann Named
To Olympic Group
DETROIT, May 1-(AP)-Matt
Mann, veteran University of Mich-
igan tank coach, and Charles Mc-
