Indiana Takes Team Title
As Michigan Finishes Sixth

By ,BO4 VOKAC
Special to The Daily
EVANSTON-Don McEwen and
Dn 'Hoover claimed individual
honors for the Wolverines here
yesterday in the 50th annual run-
ning of the Western Conference
Track and Field championships at
Dyche Stadium before 3,000
chilled fans.
Indiana, paced by Bill Peters'
twin victory and Cliff Anderson's
shot put win, edged out the field
by one point to claim the Outdoor
Championship with the lowest
team total in recent history.
* * *
THE MAIZE AND BLUE fin-
ished sixth in the Conference
team race.
The Hoosiers total points
were 37, with Illinois and Min-
nesota pressing right behind in
a two-way tie with 36 points
apiece. The Badgers finished
fourth with 31, Ohio State fol-
lowed in fifth place with 25%
and the Wolverines claimed
sixth with 23 points.
Iowa, Purdue and Northwestern
were the runners up in that order
with 14W, 12 and 10 points re-
spectively.
MCEWEN AND Hoover paced
the Wolverines with a victory
apiece.
Hoover, the ace Wolverine
hurdler, paced the 220 low
hurdle field by seven yards to
win the lows in the excellent
time of :23. This time is the
third best running of the event
in Western Conference history.
McEwen, Michigan's human
machine, whirled in 60 yards
ahead of Vic Twomey of Illinois
to claim the Wolverines' second
individual victory of the meet.
MCEWEN'S TIME was 9:13
with a final quarter of :65.4. This
is the second best outdoor two
mile in conference history.
Peters' double victory was
gained in the 100 and 220 yard
dashes. In the 100, Peters
copped his third straight crown
in that event by racing home in
the excellent time of 9.5. How-
ever, this performance is a bit
shadednby the 9.8 mile per hour
tail wind. j
Art Henrie and Bill Konrad,
Michigan's qualifiers in the 100
failed to place in the finals.
PETERS GAINED his second
victory of the day in the 220
dash. He annexed his second
straight victory in that event
with a brilliant time of :21.2,
just .1 of a second slower than
Jesse Owens' 1936 Conference re-
cord of :21.1.
Henrie, the Wolverine entry
in the 220, was forced to drop
out of the running midway
through the distance with a
pulled leg muscle.
Notwithstanding his 220 low
performance, Hoover turned in a
good showing in the 120 yard
highs by running a good second
behind Iowa's Russ Merkel, who
won in the excellent time of :14.4.
IN AN ATTEMPT to add every
33 Cars Race
On Derby Day
Indianapolis-(I)-The 33-car
starting lineup for the 500-mile
Memorial Day race was filled ten-
tatively today.
Twelve cars made qualifying
runs at the Indianapolis speedway
today, and 11 moved provisionally
into the last four rows of the
starting lineup. The 12th was in
and out again - too slow.

SEVERAL of the 33 probably
will be bumped out of the race
by faster cars qualifying tomor-
row, the last day.
One-legged Bill Schindler had
the ton combination of good and
bad breaks. He won the $500
prize for the day's fastest quali-
fication as he drove the auto
shippers special at 132.690 miles
an hour, the sixth fastest quali-
fying time in the history of the
speedway.
Then he broke a piston and,
tore up his motor. His garage
crew hoped to have it back in
shape by tomorrow, or at least
by race day.

possible point, Coach Don Can-
ham doubled McEwen in the one-
mile event in which the Wolver-
ine sophomore ran third behind
Wisconsin's Don Gehrmann and
Ohio State's Len Truex.
Gehrmann was also a double
winner along with Peters. The
Wisconsin powerhouse claimed
his second outdoor title by
wheeling off a 1:52.9 half mile.
Michigan's shot put artist, Char-
lie Fonville, placed a disappoint-
ing third in the finals as Indiana's
champ, Jim Roberson, was dis-
placed by his teammate, Cliff
Anderson. Anderson's winning toss
was 53 feet 9 inches with Rober-
son far behind with 52 feet 11%
inches.
* *.
FONVILLE'S BEST attempt of
the day was 51 feet 11 inches.
Illinois picked up 11 crucial
points in the pole vault event
as Don Laz paced the Illini en-
tries with 14 feet. Dick Coleman
jumped second behind Laz and
I)ick Calisch completed the Illi-
ni entries by sharing the third
place tie with Michigan's Ed
Ulvestad and Harry McKnight
of Ohio State at 13 feet 6 inches.

Special to The Daily
COIUMBUS-Purdue emphati-
cally proved its claim to the
Western Conference Golf Cham-
pionship here yesterday by sweep-
ing to a record-breaking tourna-
ment victory over its eight rivals.
The Boilermakers walked away
with a 46 stroke margin over sec-
ond place Ohio State. Michigan
was third by six swings.
THE WINNING TEAM'S total
of 1464 set a new mark to replace
the 1499 established by the Wol-
verines at Ann Arbor last spring.
Medalist honors also went to
Purdue as Fred Wampler be-
came the first player in Big Ten
history to win three individual
crowns. His 72 hole total of 284
was four under par and good

enough to

Wampler won the medal in 1948
and tied Michigan's Ed Schalon
for it last year.
* * * ~
THE WOLVERINES were
spearheaded by sophomore Dick
Evans who fired three rounds at
74 and then closed out with an
even par 72 for a total of 294. He
placed sixth among the individual
players.
Keith Leclair, battling Wamp-
ler all the way and Nieporte
over the final 36 holes, came in
with a 299. He sunk a 12-foot
birdie putt on the 72nd green to
break 300.
Leo Hauser came next for
Michigan with 304 followed by
Dean Lind's 305. Chuck MacCal-
lum required 314 strokes and John
Praser had a 322. The latter
score did not figure in the team
mark since only the five lowest
counts are tabulated.
MINNESOTA WAS in fourth
place, 12 strokes higher than the
Wolverines. Indiana, Illinois, Io-
wa, Northwestern and Wisconsin
followed in that order.
The final 18 holes of the
tournament developed into a
battle among the leading play-
ers since Purdue's victory had
been virtually assured by that
time.
Wampler's teammate, Genes
Coulter, began the last round with
a two stroke edge over the champ.
He had a 54-hole mark of 211.
Nieporte was deadlocked with
Wampler at 213, and John Hare,
also of Purdue was fourth with
216.
* * *
-DOWN THE STRETCH it was

all Wampler, however, he took
a five stroke lead over Nieporte
at the 67th hole and then coasted
easily. Coulter faded completely
at the end and chalked up a 79
for a 290 total and fourth place.
Hare slipped into third With a
289.
The turning point of the Med-
alist race came on the 61st hole
when Wampler curled a 16-

He added insurance with his

Snead Hits 66
To Increase
'olonial Lead
FORT WORTH, Tex.,--(JP)-
Sam Snead's putter was smoking
hot today and he celebrated the
thirty-eighth anniversary of his
birth with a four-under-par 66 and
a long lead at the three-quarters
mark in the $15,000 Colonial In-
vitation Golf Tournament.
The White Sulpher Springs, W.
Va., top man of professional golf,
turned his second 66 round of the
tourney and made his 54-hole to-
tal 204 - five strokes better than
Ed (Porky) Oliver, the links'
round man from Seattle, Wash.
Oliver puffed in with a par 70,
and a total of 209 for second place.
Snead finished to find a gallery
of 7,500 on the eighteenth green
where Lacy Boggess, President of
Colonial Country Club, presented
him with a birthday cake.

Title Tie
Tale
By virtue of their two vic-
tories this weekend, Wisconsin
finished in a tie with Michigan
for the big ten baseball title.
The two teams brought their
seasons to a close today with
conference victories, thus giv-
ing them each a total of nine
wins and three losses in con-
ference play.
Up until last weekend, the
Wolverines had the title vir-
tually sewed up. It was then
that Wisconsin came to Ann
Arbor to nip the Maize and
Blue nine twice.
Moving into the final week
in a first place tie, the two
teams were under pressure to
win both of their engagements
this weekend. This they did,
Michigan beating Ohio State
twice, and Wisconsin beating
Minnesota twice.

chance for the title in losing Fri-
day picked up a single run in the
fourth. Hicks walked Bob Monte-
bello and Bob Mann, and the Wil-
liams singled to left for one run.
AT THIS POINT with one out,
Coach Ray Fisher, anxious to pro-
tect his lead, pulled Hicks in fav-
or of Larson, a southpaw who re-
ceived credit for the triumph. Lar-
son retired the side without fur-
ther damage.
The highflying Wolverines at-
tempting to run the score up
added another run in the sixth.
Gerry Dorr singled, moved to
second on a walk to Larson,
took third on a force play and
tallied on Koceski's third hit, a
linedrive to left.
Ohio State's shortstop Jack Wil-
son gave Michigan a big assist in
the eighth as he made two suc-
cessive boots which preceded a
single by Ted Berce that account-
ed for the final Wolverine mark-
er. Dick Hess was the victim in
this inning.
Working with a five run lead,
Larson ran into difficulties as
he yielded singles by Ohio

State's two big hitters - Geb-
hardt and Fred Taylor. Fearing
an uprising against the young
lefthand'er whd had been in
trouble in every inning, Fisher
brought in Eddie Grenkoski
from the bullpen.
Grenkoski, who had won Fri-
day's game, responded by getting
Montebello to force Taylor at sec-
ond with Gebhardt scoring on the
play. He then fanned Pete Perini
and Vic Kauffman popped up to
Wolff to end the game and give
Michigan the title.
* * *
BOTH teams came up with sev-
eral fielding gems during the af-
ternoon. Ohio State's outfielders
robbed Morrill and Fancett of
certain extra base hits. Gebhardt
hauled down a long smash off
Morrill's bat with an over the
shoulder catch in deep rightcen-
ter, and Hein pulled in a line
drive of f Fancett in almost the
same spot. Both men here on sec-
ondbase when the balls were
caught.
Michigan came up with two dou-
ble plays - one an unassisted one
by Berce - to help out the pitch-
ers in tight spots.
