THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Tramples Michigan State, 9-2
Cindermen Set for Conference Clash
Bob Wolff Drives in FourI
Runs in 11-Hit Onslaught
Y This year's annual running of
the Western Conference outdoor
track meet, to be held at Madison
in honor of Tom Jones who is re-
tiring this year after 41 years as
Wisconsin's track coach, should
provide a very interesting strug-
gle for second place.
Ohio State is expected to have
ittle trouble rolling up between
55 and 60 points to take first place,
but Illinois, Micnigan, and Min-
nesota are about even in the con-
test for second honors with a
slight edge going to the Illini.
Johnson's chances in the 440
yd. dash look good despite the fact
that his chief competitor, Cogswell
of Ohio (Conference champ) has
beaten Johnson twice indoors
while Johnson has won their only
encounter outdoors this year.
Barten in Mile
For Michigan Barten should win
either the mile or half mile but
not both although he will probably
be entered in both events. To win
these two he would have to beat
out Gehrman of Wisconsin in the
mile and 55 minutes later take
Whitfield of Ohio.
In the high jump, Dwight Ed-
dleman of Illinois is the favorite
with second place a battle between
Michigan's Tom Dolan, whose best
jump was 6'5"; Hodgell, Wiscon-
sin 6'412"; and Shafer and Jones
of Purdue, 6'3".
Fonville Conceded Shot
Fonville should have no trouble
with the shotput with Wasser of
Illinois and Gordien, Minnesota,
taking second and third. This
means that Dendrinos will have to
battle Roberson, Indiana, Henin-
ger, Purdue, and Mascio, OSU, for
The milearelay will again see
Ohio State and Michigan battling
it out, with Ohio a very definite
favorite, but Michigan should
have little trouble with the rest
of the field.
Tomasi Each Connect Twice
Goes Distance for Fourth Win
(Special to The Daily)
EAST LANSING, May 26-Six thousand spectators turned out for
the first twilight game of the season late this afternoon, but the
partisan crowd left Old College Field recalling how Michigan's
gridiron team crushed its up-state rivals last September, 55-0.
It was another devastating set-back for the Spartans as the
Wolverines pushed across all their runs in the first and last innings
to win, 9-2.
Lefty Bud Rankin tossed the entire game for Michigan, chalk-
ing up his fourth win of the season, against no losses. The port-
sider gave up ten hits.
Bob Krestel started on the mound for State, and after a shaky
first inning in which four Michigan tallies crossed the plate, pitched
two hit ball until the seventh when he weakened and was removed
in favor of Lou Bloch.
The Maize and Blue got to Bloch in the ninth for five more runs

As Favorites in Big Nine Meet
NEW YORK 1, N. Y.
VAN HEUSEN SHIRTS 'TIES.-PAJAMAS
COLLARS. SPORT SHIRTS
The familiar cry of "Beat Michi-
gan" will ring out at Evanston,
Ill. today as a strong Wolverine
tennis squad launches a three-day
drive which it hopes will culmi-
nate in another Big Nine crown
for the Maize and Blue standard
Established as pre-meet favor-
ites in the basis of a 5-4 victory
over defending champion North-
western and an 8-1 walloping of a
strong Illiniois squad, the Wolver-
ines nevertheless, will have their
work cut out for them.
Three Defending Champs
Northwestern has three de-
fending champions back in the
persons of Ted Peterson, Larry
Daley and Bill Landin.
Then to make things tougher for
their opponents they have two
more men back from last year's
championship team plus a sixth
singles man who is a former Illi-
nois state champion and runner-
up in the 1948 national junior
Handy Andy Paton will be the
Wolverines top threat as today's
meet gets under way. Andy who
has already defeated two of his
top opponents (Peterson and Fred
Steers of Illinois) this year must
get by those two again if he hopes
to walk off with the crown.
Bill Mikulich, Wolverine cap-
tain, holds easy decisions over
Dave Brown of Illinois and North-
western's Ted Hainline and stands
a good chance of bringing home
the bacon in the second singles.
The steady, unspectacular Mi-
kulich has played a surprising
brand of tennis since his elevation
to the second slot and his 6-1, 6-1
win over Hainline raised more
than a few eyebrows.
Veteran Fred Otto will have his
hands full in the No. 3 singles di-
vision with Wildcat Mary Beskin
and Illini Joey Weiss furnishing
the top oppsition.
Otto Meets Dark Horse
Otto dropped a decision to Bas-
kin and took a real thriller from
Weiss in season play, but he hasn't
met the dark horse of the third
singles dimsion-Hub Sichneider
of Wisconsin who has posted
twelve wins in thirteen starts.
The fourth and fifth singles are
anybody's guess. Wolverine Jack
Hersh has defeated defending
champion Larry Daly, but the
Wildcat star will be plenty tough
with his title on the line.
Northwestern's other defending
champion, Bill Landin has defeat-
ed Gordie Naugle once this year,
but Gordie should be able to pick
up some second or third place
points for Michigan in the fifth
Key to Crown1
That incidentally is the key to
the Conference crown this year.
With Illinois, Michigan and
Northwestern all boasting great
depth the title probably will be de-
cided on those valuable second
and third place points.
Sixth singles honors should go
to Grant Golden, Northwestern's
star sophomore. Once again a
Michigan man will offer the top
He will be Don MacKay who has
improved steadily thru the year.
Don, however, has been beaten
once already by Golden and
doesn't quite equal the Northwest-
plete Michigan's revenge. Earlier
in the season, the Spartans
whipped Ray Fisher's squad in
Ann Arbor, 7-3, in a seven inning
game cut short by rain.
Bump Elliott led off the first
with the first of Michigan's 11
hits, a single into center. Ralph
Morrison successfully sacrificed
the Bumper to second and Ted
Kobrin walked. After Jack
Weisenburger popped out to sec-
ond, Jack McDonald, who laced
out two hits in the game, singled
on a hot smash back to the
box, loading the bases.
Dom Tomasi then singled to
left, scoring Elliott and Kobrin,
and Bob Wolff followed with a
one-bagger to center for the other
After State had picked up one
run in the fourth and fifth, bothl
teams were scoreless until the
Michigan ninth. With one away,
Elliott walked and Morrison and
Kobrin singled for one run. Weis-
enburger then worked Bloch for
a free ducat to first to load the
McDonald sent a deep fly into'
center which allowed Morrison to
come in with the sixth Michigan
run. Tomasi followed with a single
to center and two more runs were
in, the second sacker taking sec-
ond on the throw into the plate.
Dick Simcocks came in to hurl for
the Spartans but yielded a single
to Wolff for the last two runs.
Big Nine Golf
Competition in the Big Nine
Golf Championship this weekend
will be the toughest it has been
in a long time.
Four great collegiate golf teams
that smack of pre-war quality are
expected to provide the fireworks
necessary to make this one of the
closest matches in the Conference
In this corner, wearing the
Maize and Blue, are Michigan's
defending champions. In the other
corner is a trio of challengers that
plan to make two wins a row a
Minnesota, on the long end of
a ten match winning streak, looks
like the number one threat to the
Wolverines' chances of a repeat
Gophers Go For Title
The Gophers are packed with
a great set of golfers. Howie John-
son, one of collegiate's best, the
Bruce Dutcher, Phi Delta
Theta linksman, swung his way
to All-Campus Golf honors by
carding a 163 total. Close on
his heels was John Mummert
who went the 36 holes in 164.
Waryan brothers, Bill and Don,
Joe Sodd and Don Holich promise
to make the final result a close
In the number two position is
Northwestern. The Wildcats must
be given some share of the fav-
orite's role since the match will be
played on their home course. This
certainly gives them an advantage,
and with 72 holes in the offing,
their knowledge of the course may
be enough to bring home the cup.
Purdue is the number three
challenger. The Boilermakers
proved that they are of champion-
ship caliber when they upset
Michigan on the University course
last week. Fred Wampler. Jack
Hesler, Dwight Marsee and Bill
Dahl could sneak in the winner if
they get some help from their
third and fourth men.
On paper no team has a notice-
able edge on any other of the
four. If you're trying to pick the
winner, put the four names in a
hat, pick out one and you'll be as
right as the next guy.
