Perfect Split
Means Title
For M'Nine
A look at the Big Ten standings
at this point reveals that Michigan
needs just a perfect split in both
the Wisconsin and Ohio State ser-
ies to capture undisputed posses-
sion of the conference crown.
Entering their final two weeks
of play, the Wolverines have, roll-
ed to seven victories against one
lone defeat to l.ead the pack by a
full two games.
* * *
TRAILING THE Wolverines are
the two clubs that furnish the op-
position this week and next-Wis-
consin and Ohio State. Both teams
have posted five wins while drop-
ping three contests.
If the Maize and Blue can
hand the Badgers one defeat and
the Bucks one setback the title
would be assured. A sweep in the
two game series with the Bad-
gers this weekend would clinch
at least a tie for the crown.
The Wolverines are in a fortu-
nate position 'in the standings
right now, but the scheduling of
the two final series away from
home could be a definite hind-
rance. The Maize and Blue split
with Illinois in their only road
series this year.
hurt the Wolverines is the sudden
collapse of the pitching staff
against Purdue last weekend. In
this series Michigan's hitters took
up the slack to bring home the two
victories, but the hurlers were woe-
fully ineffective.
Following the Purdue contests
Michigan has three men hitting
above .300 in conference action.
Gerry Dorr heads the parade with
.346 while Leo Koceski and Pete
Palmer follow wiht marks of .333
and .324 respectively.

Konrad Looms as Major Dash Threat
_ _ _* * *

A very serious leg injury a
little over three years ago almost
stopped a most promising track
career for Bill Konrad, but today
he stands out prominently in
Coach Canham's plans for a suc-
cessful track campaign.
Konrad's impressive showings
the last two weeks in a dual and
triangular meet have helped
lighten the burden of ace sprinter
Art. Henrie's injury. And more
than that, his performances have
given Canham hope for more
power in the dashes in future

and with his injury seemingly
well healed, he can again run his
favorites - the 100 and 220 yard
During his first three years
in Oak Park, Illinois high school
Konrad established himself as

When the leg healed, Konrad

He had to turn to the 440 yard

To top it off, he also placed sec-

a good leg in the mile relay.

We pride ourselves on having the most loyal customers
that any store could possibly have. Not only do they
wear their STAEB & DAY clothes with great pride-
but they go out of their way to act as ambassadors of
good will for us. It is a daily occurrence, in our clothing
and furnishing store, to have men introduced to us-as
new customers-by their friends whom we have served
for many years. This close relationship between our pa-
trons and Staeb & Day is our greatest asset. It makes
our extra effort to sell at "the smallest margin of profit
known" - "to provide the finest clothing known" - a
worthwhile and gratifyingly way of doing business.
