(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, Ohio-The Buck-
eyes came from behind yesterday,
winning the last three events of
the meet, to edge an underdog
squad from Michigan, 702 to
61% /2.
The Wolverines piled up a six
point lead at the end of 11 events,
but the Bucks pulled in front with
victories in the broad jump, discus
and the mile relay.
MICHIGAN scored 18 points in
the hurdlesby registering a clean
sweep of both the highs and the
lows.
Sophomore sensation Jim Mit-
chell won both events, and his
time in the highs was :14.4, two-
tenths of a second better than the
winning time in last week's Con-
ference Meet.
Clay Holland and Don Hoover
completed the victorious trio,
and joined with Mitchell to shut
out the Ohioans in the timber
events.

Sam Zoldak for six runs in the
first two innings to defeat Cleve-
land, 6-2, last night behind the 7-
hit pitching of Sid"Hudson. It was
the Senators' fourth straight vic-
tory in as many games with the
Indians.

PHILADELPHIA - The Phila-
delphia Athletics protected their
hold on second place in the Amer-
ican League last night, defeating
the Chicago White Sox 6-4 on the
strength of a five-run fourth-in-
ning attack. A double play halted
a ninth inning rally by the Sox.
Track Record
Set byFrosh
Coach Elmer Swanson's fresh-
man track team wound up practice
this week by setting a new Michi-
gan frosh record for the two-mile
relay.
The quartet of Don McEwen,
Aaron Gordon, Jack Heikkenen,
and Chuck Whittaker covered the
distance in 8:03.2, to clip nearly
five seconds off the old .mark
This is the same team that set the
indoor mark during the winter
season.
* * *
SWANSON announced yester-
day that 22 men had been rec-
ommended for their freshman
numerals. They are: Wally Atchi-
son; Lit Bachus; Bruno Boelster;
Horace Coleman; Don Cooper;
Aaron Gordon.

man; Tom Johnson; Charles
Kepler; Jack Kinnel; Bill Kon-
rad; Larry Lange; Lyle LaPine;
Don McEwen; Ron Packer; Jack
Rose.
The list concludes with Bud
Sexton; Paul Shaler; Dave Weigel;
Chuck Whittaker; and Gene Wil-
liams.

NEW YORK--Tommy Byrne
was the whole works yesterday
as he pitched and batted the
league-leading New York Yan-
kees to a 6-2 triumph over Hal
Newhouser and the Detroit Tig-
ers.
The 29-year-old lefthander
hurled, a five-hitter over the
slumping Bengals and struck out
12. le also collected two of the
Yankees' 15 hits, both of them
doubles, and drove in four runs.
BOSTON-The St. Louis Browns
.supported effective pitching by
Cliff Fannin and Tom Ferrick with
13 hits to snap a BostonRed Sox
four-game winning streak yester-
day with an 8-4 victory.
PITTSBURGH - Brooklyn's
surging Dodgers whipped the
Pittsburgh Pirates, 8-6 yesterday
with the help of some fine relief
hurling by rookie Jack Banta and
a 13-hit attack, led again by
Jackie Robinson.
* * *
CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati
Reds came from behind yesterday
to defeat Philadephia, 3 to 2.
Philadelphia, which had gone
ahead in the third: inning, when
Del Ennis hit a home run with
Richie Ashburn on base, made
four safeties in the eighth off
Red Lively, yet failed to score.
* * *
CHICAGO - Hank Edwards,
recently acquired from the Cleve-
land Indians, drove in one run and
scored another to lead the Chi-
cago Cubs to a 3-2 victory over
the New York Giants yesterday.
ST. LOUIS-Howard Pollet was
the old Pollet of 1946 in a six-hit
performance against the Boston
Braves yesterday and the St. Louis
Cardinals made it two straight
over Billy Southworth's club 3 to
0.
Warren Spahn pitched a fine
game for the Braves for all but
one unfortunate inning, the
fourth, when the Cards scored all
of their runs on two doubles, two
singles and an error.

Champion, was high scorer. He
won the quarter-mile easily in
.49.8, took the half mile in his
stride, running 1:54.2, and then
anchored the mile relay squad to
a 3:19.2 victory.
BOB SERGESON of Michigan
placed second to Whitfield in the
440, while Herb Barten chased
him across the finish in the half-
mile. Barten was back in good
form, running 1:54.8, but couldn't
match the antelope stride of Whit-
field, who beat him by six-tenths
of a second.
Outstanding race of the day
was the two-mile, where the
Wolverines added six points. It
was won by Jus Williams of the
Wolverines in 9:29.7, with team-
mate Bruce Vreeland finishing
third.
Wolverine Shel Capp set the
pace for the first mile and was
clocked in 4:49. Williams and
Vreeland took over at about the
mile-and-a-half mark as Capp be-
gan to fade.
With about a lap-and-a-half to
go, Williams started to pull away
from Vreeland as Frank D'Arcy
started to sneak up from behind.
D'Arcy finished in strong fashion,
beating Vreeland out of second
place by about four seconds, but
finishing about 100 yards behind
Williams.

Ball Squad
By HERB RU SKIN
While Michigan winds up its
1949 baseball season this weekend
in a two game series against Wis-
consin, the final standings of the
Western Conference may not fin-
ally be decided until the following
week.
The Wolverines are pretty well
out of the race with a record of
six victories and four defeats, and
they will need a twin victory over
the Badgers to keep their outside
chance for the crown.
* * o
PURDUE IS currently in first
place, with a 6-2 record, but the
Boilermakers have a tough road
ahead of them, taking on the sec-
ond place Indiana nine this week-
end and finishing up with Ohio
State, June 3 and 4.
The darkhorse of the race is
Iowa, tied with Indiana for sec-
ond at 7-3, but while the Hoos-
iers, and Purdue are knocking
each other off, the Hawkeyes
could slip in under the wire with
a twin victory over the doormat
of the conference, lowly North-
western.
With the exception of Michigan,
the rest of the Big Nine squads are
completely out of the picture and
even with the Wolverines, its a
great big "if."
THE ONLY WAY that the Maize
and Blue could conceivably wind
up in a tie for the title would be
to take two games from Wis-
consin tomorrow and Saturday.
They would also need quite a
bit of outside help. Indiana and
Purdue would have to split their
two games and even then the
Boilermakers would have to
drop one of their games to Ohio
State the following week. Also,
Northwestern would have to
beat Iowa once in their series.
If such a situation occurred, it
would mean a four way tie for the
championship.
