By GEORGE FLINT
Hoping for better luck and peak
performances from their athletes,
a couple of teams that were lost
in the shuffle in the Big Ten
Indoor track meet - Indiana and
Wisconsin - must be regarded
as definite threats in this week-
end's outdoor meet.
The Hoosiers depend on balance
and a red-haired speedster named
Cha; lie Peters.
WISCONSIN has Don Gehr-
mann, perennial distance titan,
and a mile relay quartet which
includes the Big Ten's best quar-
ter-miler, LeRoy Collins.
Other than Peters, who's
turned in 9.5 for the century
dash and 21.5 for the furlong,
Indiana can boast a number of
good, but not great performers.
Conference
To Consider
BowlPollicy-
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The Big Ten may
revise or drop its Rose Bowl foot-
ball pact with the Pacific Coast
Conference this weekend.
The current five-year bowl
agreement ends next New Year's
Day. With mixed sentiments, the
Big Ten athletic fathers are ex-
pected to decide whether to renew
it at their May business meetings
in Evanston, Ill., today through
Saturday.
EVEN THOUGH the Big Ten
has swept to four straight bowl
triumphs over the Pacific loop
champions, some Conference lead-
ers are far from satisfied with the
past-season classic.
Criticism has ranged from an
out-spoken disdain for the whole.
project by President J. L. Mor-
rill of Minnesota to complaints
over the Big Ten's three-year
restriction on a return appear-
ance and ticket allocations.
When the current pact was ap-
proved in November, 1946, the vote
unofficially was reported to be 7
to 2, Minnesota and Illinois cast-
ing the negative ballots. Ironcal-
ly, Illinois won the 1946 loop title
and appeared at Pasadena to trim
UCLA, 45-14, in the 1947 bowl in-
$augural.
* * *
THIS WEEKEND, new member
<- Michigan State will have a say in
the bowl balloting. Whether the
Spartan school, backed in its mem-
bership bid by Minnesota's Mor-
rill, and several schools which may
have changed their 1946 attitude
will frown on a pact renewal is
conjectural. Michigan State does
not play as a conference grid
member until 1953.
Along with Illinois, 1948 Bowl
winner Michigan (49-0 over South-
ern California) will be eligible for
the finale of the present five-year
series next New Year's Day.
Northwstern which downed Cal-
ifornia 20-14 in 1949 and Ohio
Satte, 17-14, conqueror of the
Bears last Jan. 2, can't return.

Just for a sample -- Bill Tay-
lor with a 14.9 best time in the
high hurdles and a 24.5 in the
lows should pick up points. Bill
Gal rett has a 50 flat for the 440,
fifth best time in the conference.
Frank Owens in the mile and
Dave De Witte in the two mile
have best times of 4:22.5 and
9:21.2, respectively.
* * *
IN THE FIELD events the Hoo-
siers are even stronger. High
jumpers Dave Norton and Harold
Harmet have topped 6'3", which
is generally good enough to place
at the meet.
Shot-putter Jim Roberson
tossed the sphere 53'3" Satur-
day, better than indoor champ!
Chuck Fonville has done in dual
meets thus far outdoors. Rober-
son also is high up in the 150's
in the discus throw.
Wisconsin's Badgers, who took
a third indoors, will be up among
the leaders this weekend. Wiscon-
sin's big man, who is in reality
quite diminutive physically, is bril-
liant distanceman Don Gehrmann.
GEHRMANN's most notable per-
formance this season was his
4:11.8 mile and 1:53.2 half mile.
It's doubtful if he has a peer in
either of these races, unless it's
Michigan's Don McEwen, who out-

crosse are invited to attend a
meeting in the main office of
the I-M Building this after-
noon at 4:30.
--Earl Riskey.
ran him at the Kansas Relays this
spring in the final leg of a dis-
tance relay. McEwen's 4:12 out-
doors is the nearest thing to
G hrmann's best.
In the quarter-mile, LeRoy Col-
lins has an excelleit 48.1 to his
credit, and his anchor leg also
bosters a strong Badger mile re-
lay. He's no slouch in the 220,
either, consistently running under
22 seconds.
Ccnsequent of these individual
stars, both the Badgers and In-
diana will be strong threats this
vwckend in what should te one:

usce carnivals ever programmed.

By JIM PARKER
Michigan ana two of the other
three contenders for the Big Ten
baseball crown will get their fi-
nal shot at the Conference title
this weekend.
Only fourth place Ohio State
will see league action after this
week, when the Buckeyes finish
with a series at Purdue, June 2-3.
* * *
THE WOLVERINES will have
their task cut out for them this
weekend at Columbus.
Currently tied with Wiscon-
sin for first place with seven
wins and three losses, Michi-
gan must take its two giames
from the red hot Buckeyes, who
are presently riding the crest
of an eight game winning streak,
to be certain of at least a share
of the Conference title.
Wisconsin, having moved into
the lead deadlock on a double
win over Michigan last weekend,
is in a more favorable position.
*, * *
THE BADGERS wind up their
scheduleBwith two games against
Minnesota's last place Gophers,
who have been able to post but
one Conference victory in seven
starts.
Only a split in the Wiscon-
sin-Minnesota series coupled

with a double win over Ohio
State by Michigan would give
the Wolverines undisputed pos-
session of the league crown.
Third place Iowa (6-3) faces
the possibility of having a cancel-
led game (with Purdue last month)
cost the Hawkeyes a tie for the
title.
IOWA CONCLUDES its Big Ten
schedule against Northwestern
this weekend, but even two vic-
tories over the Wildcats will leave
the Hawkeyes short of first if
either Wisconsin or Michigan
sweep their two game series.
On the other hand, the can-
cellation could give Iowa the
title if both the present league
leaders split their series and
the ITawkeyes win two fronu
Northwestern.
Ohio State, in the fourth spot
with a 5-3 record, needs to sweep
both the Michigan and Purdue
series to keep its hopes alive for
at least a tie for the crown:
A split in the Badger-Gopher
series, however, would give the
Buckeyes their chance to take an
undisputed championship and to
continue their sweep of the Big
Ten'sdmajor sports titles that
started with last year's tie with
Michigan in football.

* * *
ALTHOUGH the Wolverines
edged the defending champions,
5-4, in a dual meet earlier in the
season, it must be remembered
that Murphy's charges also held a
decision over the Wildcats at this
point last year.
Illinois mustn't be counted
out by its trouncing at the
hands of Michigan. Apparently
it was a combination of the
visitors being tired from their
match of the previous day, and
the exceptional brand of ten-
nis exhibited by the local aggre-
gation that day.
The meet will be run off in nine
separate tournaments, one for
each of the six singles and three
dloubles positions.

Michigan and Illinois loom
the most formidable obstacles
the path of the Wildcats.

as
in

As was the case all season
Murphy will be depending on
squad depth to swing the bal-
ance to the Maize and Blue.
The remaining six teams will
play no minor role, if last year's
results are any criteria. In losing,
Michigan's netmen outplayed the
Wildcats when individuals from
the two teams crossed rackets,
Northwestern captured the title,
because they had better success
against the rest of the field.

Wakefield Makes News Again,
Threatens Yankees With Suit

DETROIT-GP)-Dick Wakefield,
the Yankees non-playing outfield-
er, threatened legal action today
unless the New York club pays him
for the time he was suspended.
Right now Wakefield is collect-
ing about $100 a day from the
Yankees for not playing.
* * *
"I WANT THE money I lost
while suspended," he said today
at Briggs Stadium where the
Yanks-Tigers game was rained out.
"I'm going to get it even if it
means legal action.
"According to George Weiss
(Yankee General Manager), I

was suspended for 19days, from
April 30th to last Wednesday.
But since there wasn't any deal,
why should I have to lose that
money?"
Wakefield was traded to Chi-
cago but declined to report unless
the White Sox restored a pay cut
given him by the Yankees. The
deal was called off.
THE OUTFIELDER said he is
wondering what the Yankees plan
to do with him.
"I don't think they've even put
me on the waiver list," he said.
"Why?
"Are they trying a deal with
someother club. If so, how long
will it be before something hap-
pens? I'd like to stay in the Amer-
ican League, not to be peddled to
the National, too. And I won't go
to the minors," he asserted.
Weiss has refused any negotia-
tions regarding Wakefield.

New York Broadcaster Finds
Bombers Weaker This Year

SMOOTH FEEL...
WON'T SCRATCH
W1

By BOB MARGOLIN
It doesn't look like the Yanks
will repeat last year's 'American
League pennant win, according to
Mel Allen, New York broadcaster
who is in Detroit to announce the
current Yankee-Tiger series.
In an interview at Briggs Sta-
dium yesterday, Allen reiterated
his early prediction that the Bos-
ton Red Sox will take the title.
Allen's choice for the dark horse
of the race is the Detroit Tigers.
"THE YANKS are growing old
and their reflexes are bound to
slow up," he said. "A fraction of
a second in timing might mean the
difference between a .350 and a
.250 batting average."
How long is Joe DiMaggio go-
ing to be with the Yanks? About
two more years, Allen feels. Di-
Maggio is the type of person
whose pride will not let him die
the slow, painful death of a ball

player. When he thinks he is
nearing the end of his career,
he will drop out of pro ball long
before the pink slip catches up
with him.
Commenting on Joe Page, Allen
said he didn't feel the great re-
lief hurler looks as good as he did
last year. As for Yogi Berra, he
may pull a few stunts off the field,
but on the diamond he has plenty
of baseball know-how.
Allen cleared up a point con-
cerning Dick Wakefield's relations
with his former team mates. He
said that the Ann Arborite was in
the dressing room after yesterday's
New York-Detroit ball game was
rained out, and that he and the
Yanks were talking affably; they
didn't show any signs of animosity.
During an hour and a half con-
versation, the famous New York
broadcaster and loyal fan didn't
utter one, "How about that!"
