WEEP, YE BASKETBALL FANS, for the Messiah is gone.
He came to us when darkness hung over the Field House and
we were sore oppressed by our enemies, when plagues of Badgers, and
Illini devoured our crops and made us to eat of the bitter fruit
Sof defeat..
And in his presence we took heart and hoped, and yea, ere
the sun had set on the second year of his teachings we had
cast off the yoke.
He gathered his flock around him and from their midst drew
forth the sure of eye and the swift of hand and taught unto
them: "Fear not, Be wary and they shall not score (often).
AND HE SAITH unto them: "Blessed are the sick in spirits for
theirs is the Big Nine Title.
"Blessed are they that mourn, for their friends shall obtain
preferential tickets.
"Blessed be the tall for they shall inherit the rebounds.
"Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after field goals for
they shall be filled.
"Blessed are the unmerciful for they shall cut down the
scoring record of Dick Schnittker, Jim McIntyre, and Murray
Weir.
"Blessed are the pacemakers for they shall be called the fourth
best team in the land.
"BLESSED ARE YE, that when men shall revile you and persecute
you, and shall say all manner of, evil against you falsely for my
sake, ye shall still freeze the ball the late minutes of a close game."
And it came to pass that it was so. And we followed in the
light of his teachings unto greater basketball glories than we had
ever known.
Now, weep ye, ye basketball fans, for the Messiah is gone forth
from his chosen people to carry his word into the dark country of
t the Minnesotans.

first as Taft uncorked a wild pitch
which hit him in the small of the
back.
Illini Score
Herb Plews flied out to right,
Wickland scoring after the catch,
andT hurlby drilled his second hit
of the afternoon into left center,
driving in Fisher with the second
Illinois run and sending Anderson
around to third.
Russ Steger, of gridiron fame,
then punched a single into left to
send Anderson home and Thurlby
to third. Steger took second on the
throw to the plate, but the two
men were stranded as Kobrin
came up with a gem of a play on
a hot smash by Bob Wakefield,
tagging Steger out as he came
down the line.
Fischer Doubles
Illinois' last run came in the
next inning on two hits. With one
away, Wickland sent a sharp
single to center. Fischer pounded
but quick fielding by Morrison and
the ball into deep left for a double,
Elliott held Wickland on third.
Ray Fisher, Michigan coach,
yanked Taft and sent in Art Dole,
who pitched seven innings yester-
day. Dole got Gugal&. on a roller
to short, but Wickland scored on
the play.

Barten Beats Whitfield, Clifford in 880;

By BUD WEIDENTHAL
The Michigan track team gavej
Ken Doherty his Ann Arbor fare-
well present by turning in one of
the finest team performances oldE
Ferry Field has ever seen.
Ohio State won the meet 74-58,
but nobody really cared about
that-it was a determined Wol-
verine squad time after time re-
cording the best performances of
their careers against almost in-
surmountable odds that kept
nearly 2000 fans on their feet all
afternoon.
They had plenty to cheer about.
Val Johnson ran better than
he had ever run in his life to
win both the quarter mile and
the 220 yard dash.
The Michigan ace beat out
Ohio's Harry Cogswell in the

quarter to win in 48.4 seconds,
four tenths of a second under hisl
best previous effort.
He came back forty minutes lat-
er to nose out Buckeye Fred John-
son in the furlong in 21.6, better-
ing his old mark by .3 seconds.
Captain Herb Barten, to
whom must go much of the
credit for keying his teammates
to the occasion, ran his best race
of the current season to whip
Mal Whitfield and Harry Cogs-

was easily the thriller of the!

Bob Thomason, who had grab-

Maize and Blue forty minutes
earlier set the pace for the first

was Whitfield first, Barten second
by two yards and Clifford a little
back in third.

Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-Wal-
lace, today broke the record of 65
consecutive track victories set by
Greg Rice of Notre Dame, when
he won the 100 yard dash and the
120 high hurdles events in a dual
meet with Miami University. His
victories gave him 66 straight
wins.
The sensational Negro athlete
won the 100-yard dash in 9.8, set-
ting a new mark here. The old re-
cord was 9.9, set in 1926 by Tom
Sharkey ofkMiami University and
tied by Jack Pandley of the Uni-
versity of Dayton in 1938, and
Harold Stout of Miami, in 1940.
Dillard also broke the local re-
cord here for the high hurdles,
jkimming over them in 14.4. The
gold mark of 15.1 was~set by John
Saunders of Miami,
Dillard had a chance to add to
the new record for consecutive
wins later in the day, when he is
scheduled to run in the 220 low
hurdles.
