Saturday's Illinois-Northwest-
ern-Michigan triangular t r a c k
meet, which went right down to
the wire, and ended up about the
same way the Illinois-Michigan
meet did indoors, showed up some
weaknesses in the Wolverine squad
which may be injurious to their
conference chances.
Although the Maize and Blue
picked up five first places and a
reasonable collection of seconds,
they took only five thirds, while
plating nine in the fourth spot.

OUT OF THIS maze of figures
can be drawn the inference that
Michigan has a lot of men who
can place in dual meets, but who'll
be out of the money in conference
competition. It's just the other
way around with the Illini and
Ohio State's Buckeyes, who have
the good but not great men who
can be counted on for place points.
Saturday's fracas did throw a
little bright light in the way of
the Wolverine, however. Don
Hoover, for instance, proved that
his 23.3 time in the Ohio State
meet was no fluke of the wind,
as he turned in a 23.7 mark, only
two tenths of a second off the
varsity record.
And Don McEwen added anoth-
er varsity record to his growing
collection, with a 4:12 mile clock-
ing which cracked the 4:14.6 rec-
ord set by the Hume brothers in
1945 and tied by Herb Barten in
McEWEN NOW has only one
varsity mark left to shoot at-and
it looks like the toughest of all.
He'll have to turn in a peak per-
formance to top Ralph Schwarz-
kopf's 11-year-old outdoor two
mile record of 9:03.5.

Michigan's tennis team did in
four hours yesterday what Wol-
verine teams have been trying to
do since midwinter. They beat

Michigan chances of repeating
as Big Ten golf king were given a
shattering jolt yesterday when it
was officially announced that the
school's number one linksman,
Bob Olson, will not be allowed to
compete for the remainder of the

ed Coach Bert Katzenmeyer to

of this action, the Wolverines must

than two weeks.

Golf Team Loses Olson
For Remaining Contests

A stubborn Purdue golf team
made an early two point margin
stand up against the Wolverines
yesterday to hand them their first
links setback in seven matches.
The score was 141/2 to 12%1/.
* * *
IT WAS A wide open affair with
neither team ever in possession of
a commanding advantage. The
Boilermakers were able to com-
mit their errors in less crucial
spots than the losers, and that
made the difference.
When firing had ceased in
three best ball morning rounds,
Purdue found itself on the long
end of a 51/2-32 score, thanks
to somhe bungling on the 18th
green by Michigan.
Dick Evans and Leo HauserI
swept three points from Boiler-
makers Bud Marsee and Norm
Dunlap to keep alive their un-
usual string of doubles victories.
They have not been scored upon
since they began playing together
four meets ago.
* * *
JOHN HARE and Dave Laflin
retrieved those tallies for Purdue
by throttling Chuck MacCaThum
and John Fraser for a clean
sweep. The other doubles encoun-
ter went to Fred Wampler and
Gene Coulter who derailed Keith
LeClair and Dean Limd of the
Wolverines, 2%-1/2.
In the latter pairing Michi-
gan could have salvaged 1 ! ex-
tra points on the last hole when
Wampler and his partner took
bogey fives, !but LeClair and
Lind leach three-putted avvy
their advantage. For al! prac-
tical purposes that was the
turning point.
With 18 points at stake in the
afternoon individual m a t c h e s,
Hauser and Lind were the only
Woevrines equal, to the task of
overhauling their opponents. Hau-

ser topped Marsee, 3-0, and Lind
spanked Hare 21/2-/2.
F1.OM THERE on down it was
all Pudue with the exception of
the number three pairing in which
Evans staggered to an even break
with Gene Coultei. Laflin and
Wampler stopped MacCalium and
LeClair, 2/2-1/2, and Dunlao took
two of three from Fraser.
Sports' Gate
Unhurtby TV
sports have nothing to fear at the
gate from television, a University
of Pennsylvania graduate student
contended yesterday.
"Television is not a major at-
tendance factor," Jerry N. Jor-
dan, who conducted a two-year
study of the effect of telecasts on
sports attendance, told the Na-
tional Association of Newspaper
Promotion Managers.
* * *
JORDAN SAID his statements
were based on actual attendance
figuresalldover the country-"on
just about every kind of condi-
tion we could find anywhere."
The recent action of the West-
ern Conference in banning live
television of football next fall, for
the protection of small college at-
tendance, was challenged by Jor-
dan. He said more college football
was telecast in the Big Ten area a
year ago than in any other see-
tion-"and a higher percentage of
schools increased their attendance
than in any other area in the
"Small colleges in the Western
Conference television areas had an
even better attendance record
than in other sections," he added.

3y virtue of their semi-final
tories yesterday afternoon at
rry Field, Williams and Tyler
uses are scheduled to clash in
Same next week which will de-
e the championship of the I-M

American League
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Boston's Dom Di-
Maggio has taken over two Ameri-
can League batting specialties in
the young 1950 season.
The Red Sox outfielder has col-
lected the most hits, 36, and the
most runs, 26, in the 24 games in
which he has played. In addition
his .371 batting average through
games of Sunday was good for a
tie for fourth place with Paul
Lehner of Philadelphia.
DIMAGGIO has played in more
games this season than any of the
other American League leaders.
His teammate, Walter Dropo, was
a .400 average after 14 games and
stands atop the leaders' list.
Larry Doby of Cleveland is in
second place only four points
behind with .396. Other leaders
are Cliff Mapes, New York, third
with .373; Walter Evers, De-
troit, sixth with .367; Victor
Wertz, Detroit, seventh with
.364; Ed Stuart, Washington,
eighth, with .352; Ed Yost,
Washington, ninth with .349,
and Tom Henrich, New York,
tenth with .346.
Three players--Red Sox Al Zar-
illa and Vern Stephens and Dick
Kryhoski of Detroit-are tied for
most doubles, eight. Four others
are tied with four triples apiece;
Yankees Henrich and Mapes; Bob
Doerr of Boston and Bob Dillinger
of Philadelphia.
* * *
TED WILLIAMS of Boston has

the most homers, nine. Stephens
has batted in the most runs, 29,
and Dillinger and Herbie Adams
of Chicago are tied with three
stolen bases each.
Charles Stobbs of Boston is the
leading pitcher with two wins and
no losses. Mel Parnell of Boston
and Art Houtteman of Detroit
each have won four and lost one.
Bob Lemon of Cleveland has the
most strikeouts, 28.
* * *
National League
Stan Musial of the St. Louis
Cardinals continued to hammer
the stuffing out of the bill during
the past week as he boosted his
average to an astronomical .467
through Sunday's games.
This represents a gain of 14
points for "The Man" and puts
him 85 points ahead of his closest
rival in the National League, Dick
Sisler of, the sizzling Phillies.
* * *
MiUSIAL'S TOTAL of 35 hits is
matched only by Sam Jethroe, the
Boston Braves' sensational rookie
outfielder. His 11 doubles are two
more than have been whaled by
runner-up Jackie Robinson of
Third behind Sisler's .382
mark comes Andy Pafko of the
Chicago Cubs, who dropped
abruptly from his towering av-
erage of .439 only a week ago to
Veteran Johnny Hopp of Pitts-

burgh went on a clubbing ram-
page, including a 6-for-6 game, to
boost his average to .363 and take
over fourth place. Tommy Glavi-
ano, Cardinals third baseman,
tacked on 24 points and climbed
into fifth with a lofty .357.
* * *.
JETHROE stands sixth with
.343; Eddie Waitkus, Phillies, sev-
enth, .330; Jackie Robinson,
Brooklyn, eighth, .329; Johnny
Wyrostek, Cincinnati, ninth, .328,
and Del Ennis, Philadelphia,
tenth, .324.
The league-leading Phils not
only have three batters in the se-
lect group, but their Willie Jones
leads in runs scored with 24 and
Ennis was tops in runs batted in
with 26.
Sid Gordon of the Braves ham-
mered his eighth home run to
take the lead in that specialty,
followed by Ralph Kiner of Pitts-
burgh and Jones of the Phils, each
with seven. Jethroe and Buddy
Kerr of the Braves each had belt-
ed three triples. PeeWee Reese of
the Dodgers continued to lead the
base stealers with five thefts.
