The Wolverines will take the
field a strong favorite to sweep
the two game series with the
Wildcats who have been able to
notch only one triumph in ten
games this season, defeating Wis-
consin 10-7, last weekend.
Wolverine coach Ray Fisher,
winding up his 28th year as base-
ball mentor, will rely on his one-
two pitching punch of Dole and
Bill Taft to round out the season,
Title at Stake
Michigan's title hopes will really
not be at stake in this contest,
as quite a bit will depend on what
happens down in Columbus where
the Buckeyes will be battling Illi-
nois in a crucial closing series.
Michigan must win both its games
and Illinois lose one for the Wol-
verines to tie for the diamond
crown.
Michigan's lineup will probably
be the same that has brought it
into second place in the Confer-
ence standings, with some changes
possible depending on whether the
Wildcats use a right hander or a
left handed pitcher.
The Wolverines will be highly
favored to extend their winning
streak to four games over the
weekend, but no matter what the
outcome of this series, the ques-
tion of how high Michigan will
finish in this year's conference
standings is out of their hands
and in the lap of Ohio State and
Illinois.
Condolences
Sent to Illini
By Wolverines
Apologies Expressed
For 'M'_Champions
Never let it be said that Mich-
iganestudents aren't gentlemen.
In behalf of the student body
the Wolverine Club has sent to
all important members. of the
Illinois campus an engraved
'memory' card similar to the one
the Illini sent to the Michigan
athletic administration last
spring. This reciprocity card, in
fitting black print, reads:
IN MEMORIUM
National Football Champions

Big Nine Football Champs-
Mich. 14-Il. 7

According to Don. Greenfield of
the Wolverine Club, "Illinois
walked away with just about
everything that Michigan had to
offer last year. They took our
measure in football, basketball,
track, and baseball."
This year, the Wolverine mem-
bers figures it would only be right
to extend the same courtesy to
the Wolverines' 'cousins' from
Illinois, for the way they were
handled in football, basketball,
golf, and tennis.

Track Marks
Set to Fall in
Big Nine Tilt
OSU Slated To
Top Wolverines
Western Conference outdoor
track records may take a terrific
pasting today and tomorrow at
the 48th annual outdoor Confer-
ence meet, being held in Madison,
Wisconsin.
The outcome of the meet itself
is in little doubt with Ohio State
in full command of the situation.
However two new records are pro-
bable and five others possible as
Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota
battle it out for second place.
Charlie Fonville, who now
holds the unofficial shot put
record of 58' 3/8" and has con-
sistently thrown over 56' this
year, appears certain to break
his own Conference record of
54' 1".
In the duscus, Fortune Gordien
of Minnesota appears to have an
almost equally good chance of
breaking the Conference mark of
174' 1" set by Archie Harris of
Indiana in 1941.
In the 120 yd. high hurdles
Lloyd Duff of Ohio State has
already proved his ability to
break the record of 14 seconds
when he ran this distance in
.13.9.
George Walker of Illinois has
equalled the Conference record in
the 220 yd. low hurdles of :22.6
set by Jesse Owens in 1935 but
has not had a very good season
this year so that there is no more
than an outside chance that this
mark will fall.
If Walker should crack thie
record in the lows he will equal
the world's record of :22.5 set by
Fred Wolcott of Rice in 1941 and
equaled by Harrison Dillard of
Baldwin Wallace in 1946.
The final record that may be
eclipsed is 6' 7 1/4" set in the high
jump by Dave Albritton of Ohio
State in 1938. Dwight Eddleman
of Illinois is the big threat in this
event having previously jumped
6' 7" indoors.

EVANSTON, Ill., May 27 -
Northwestern's defending titlists;
jumped into a slight lead as the
Western Conference tennis cham-
pionships got underway on the
Northwestern courts today.
The Wildcats piled up 10 points1
to forge ahead of a favored Mich-
igan team. The Wolverines scored
a total of 8% points to take sec-
ond place and a dark horse Wis-
consin squad was third with 7%/
markers.

Varsity Stars
Receive Yost
Honor Ke.s
Fielding H. Yost honor keys will
be awarded to ele ven University
athletes this spring for the first
time since the war, Erich A. Wal-
ter, chairman of the committee,
announced yesterday.
The awards are made on the
basis of moral character, good
citizenship, scholastic ability,
physical ability, vigor and vitality,
as well as the capacity and prom-
ise of leadership ability and suc-
cess.
Double awards were given in
certain cases because none were
made for last year. The keys will
be presented next week.
Winners of the Yost award in-
clude: Peter Elliott, 1946-47, 1947-
48, for golf, basketball and foot-
ball; Herbert Barten, 1946-47; for

row's semi-finals, while Michigan
qualified all their singles men and
were kept from outdoing the Wild-
cats when the second doubles
team of Fred Otto and Jack Hersh
lost to Northwestern's Mary Bres-
kin and Grant Golden, 6-2, 1-6,
6-4.
Tomorrow's matches will find
Andy Paton facing Wildcat Ted
Peterson in the feature No. 1 sin-
gles match, and Fred Otto coming
up against Beskin in an impatient
third singles set.
Other Wolverines qualifying in-
clude Capt. Bill Mikulich at sec-
ond singles, Jack Hersh in the
fourth singles, Gordie Naugle at
No. 5 and Bob MacKay at No. 6.
The first doubles team of Paton
and Mikulich and the third
doubles team of MacKay and
Naugle complete the Wolverine
qualifiers.
Wisconsin Surprises
Thing went just about as ex-
pected in today's matches except
for the sudden burst of power
shown by Wisconsin. Illinois,
fresh from a 5-4 upset over
Northwestern last week, had been
assigned the role of dark horse
but the Illini scored only 6 points
to place fourth.
The rest of the field lagged
well behind the leaders. Minnesota
with a strong singles threat in
the person of Ken Boyum placed
fifth with 4% points and Ohio
State was sixth with 2 points.
Iowa and Purdue followed with
1 point apiece and Indiana's weak
squad was heretjust for the ride
as they failed to qualify a man.
Although the final matches are
not scheduled to start until Sat-
urday, tomorrow's game will go a
long way towards settling the
championship.
Should Paton repeat his early
season win over defending cham-
pion Peterson and if Itto upsets
Beskin or if both Northwestern
boys come through) it will be all
over but the shouting.
