Squad Tests
Wolverines
By NORM MANGOUNI
Track teams representing Mich-
igan and Michigan State will meet
for the first time in three years
today when the Spartans visit
Ferry Field for a dual contest
slated to begin at 1:30 p.m.
The Spartans, who defeated the
Wolverines, 682-63%, in 1947
for their first dual win over Mich-
igan in history and followed up
by running to a 57-57 stand-off in
1948, are slight underdogs today.
* N *
AMONG FEATURE events will
be both the mile and two-mile
races; with State's Captain War-
ren Druetzler and Michigan's Don
McEwen expected to match strides
in both distances. Meet records
for the mile (4:25) and two-mile
(9:59.1) races are in danger since
both runners have broken those
times consistently.
Michigan's Captain Don Hoo-
ver, Big Ten indoor champion
in both the high and low hurd-
les, and State's Jesse Thomas,
who finished second to Hoover
in both events, may threaten
meet records in th8 obstacle
races.
Another top-notch race is in
prospect in the 880 yard run as
George Jacobi and Chuck White-
aker of Michigan compete against
the Spartans' Don Makielski, a
former Ann Arbor High star.
* * *
BOB CAREY of the Spartans,
and Michigan's Tom Johnson and
John Lingon will match efforts in
the weight events. Carey, who has
thrown the shot well' over 52 feet,
will be favored in that event but
may receive stiff competition in
the discut from Lingon, an Ann'
Arborite who bettered 138 feet last'
week against Wisconsin.
In the sprints, MSC's Art In-
gram and Dick Henson are
about on a par with Michigan's
Bill Konrad. Joe LaRue of
Michigan and the Green and
White's Lee Jones should pro-
vide an interesting duel at 440
yards.
The broad jump will bring to-
gether Horace Coleman and Ron
Soble of Michigan, and the Spar-
tan's Thomas, while the Wolver-
ines' Lowell Perry and State's
Hugh Dawson will be pittedl
against one another in the high
.Jump.

PLUVIUS REIGNS:
'M' Nine Tries Again

Rain blocked any chance thatv
Michigan's baseball team had to
break into the victory column
against Michigan State yesterday,
but, weather permitting, the Wol-
verines will have an opportunity
for their first conference win when
they journey to East Lansing to-
day.
Yesterday's game between the
state's two Big Ten schools has
been rescheduled for May 29.
* * *
THE RESCHEDULING was pos-
sible because coaches John Kobs
of MSC and Ray Fisher of Michi-
gan agreed to the cancellation of
yesterday's game before t h e
Spartans left East Lansing.
Under present Big Ten rules
a rescheduling is possible if it is

made before the visiting team
arrives at the game site.
In today's encounter Fisher
plans to send Bob Larsen to the
hill in an effort to hand MSC its
first Conference setback and give
the Wolverines their initial league
win.

Coach Frowns
On Bowl Pact
By ROGER GREENBERG
"Generally speaking, post-sea-
son bowl games are not a good
thing," Bennie Oosterbaan told a
Michigan Interscholastic Press As-
sociation audience at the Rack-
ham Auditorium yesterday.
He added that the Rose Bowl
was a fine experience for the
players, but certainly not for the
coach, and declined to predict
whether the Big Ten's bowl agree-
ment with the Pacific Coast would
be continued.

THE MICHIGAN football coach
Was interviewed by six high school
sports editors on the stage while
some 500 high school journalism
students from throughout the
state of Michigan lookd on. It
was one of the most intense inter-
views in his career.
Oosterbaan told his audience
that college athletes at Michi-
gan, especially football players,
are given no special considera-
tions, either financial or aca-
demic.
Furthermore, he pointed out
that the athletic administration
here does not make the initial
overtures to any high school grid
player, and that the boy must
show an interest in Michigan be-
fore he is contacted in regard to
Spartans End
Grid Practice
While the Wolverines are head-
ed into their final week of spring
football drills, the Spartans of
Michigan State hold their con-
cluding scrimmage this afternoon
at Macklin Field at 2:30 p.m.
This final game between the
Green and White squads is one
of the top attractions of the spring
at the Red Cedar Greenery. Last
year the tilt drew approximately
15,000 spectators and just as many
are expected today.
The Michigan State squad will
boast another fine aggregation
of ends for next fall's campaign.
Captain Bob Carey, a 6-5, 215-
pound mass of humanity, will
lead the corps of flankers.
Other ends counted upon for
quite a bit of work include Carey's
twin brother Bill, Doug Bobo, Paul
Dekker and Ann Arbor's Don Do-.
honey.
In fact, the end department is
so strong that two very promising
flankers at the start of spring
training, Harlan Benjamin and
Art Ingram, were shifted to defen-
sive backfield work.

said that the make-up of his 1951
team is rather uncertain due to
the draft situation.
OOSTERBAAN ANSWERED a
query about Michigan's great foot-
ball record by saying that success
depends not only on skill, but on
spirit and enthusiasm. It is these
fields that professional football
sometimes falls down, he said, but
with these factors equal, the aver-
age professional team is better
than a college one.
Oosterbaan was even grilled by
the high school sports writers
about Michigan State and their

Michigan's scheduled tennis
meet with the Northwestern
Wildcats yesterday was called

rise in football. To this he re-
plied that the Spartans had a
"terrible effect," and he pointed
to their last year's upset victory.

BENNIE OOSTERBAAN
... needs no introduction
helping him plan his college car-
eer.
THE WOLVERINE mentor ex-
plained it is a rarity to find a
college football player who has
not had high school grid experi-
ence making good in the Big Ten.
However, he said that some of
the best prep starts fail to make
the grade in college football. In
some cases this is because they
are out to make a name for
themselves on the gridiron ra-
ther than to play in the best in-
terests of the team, Oosterbaan
confided.
He commented that some fresh-
men will probably make the var-
sity team next fall, but that as a
rule he is against freshman play-
ers in varsity competition. He

Ohio State will come to Ann

The Michigan Sailing Club will
play host today and tomorrow at
Whitmore Lake to six other Mich-
igan and Northern Ohio schools in
the eliminations for the Mid West
Invitational regatta to be held
at Ohio State next weekend.
Since only three teams from
this district can make the trip
to Columbus, competition will be
hot as skippersand crews try to
sail into the honored trio.
* * *
DON McVITTIE is slated to
skipper the 'A' boat for the Wol-
verines, but the 'B' skipper and
crews have yet to be decided.
Each sailing club enters an
'A' and a 'B' boat in each race,
making a total of 14 jndividual
races in the regatta. The win-
ning crew of each race sails the
losing dinghy in the next, to
eliminate any advantages which
might be gained from sailing a
superior boat. Thus each school
has a chance to use each of the
boats sometime during the
meet. 1
Michigan expects its closest
competition to come from the
University of Toledo. The Toledo-
ans sailed off with first place in
the Michigan Invitational regatta
two weeks ago with the Wolverine
sailors close behind, but this week
the Wolverines will be out to leave
Toledo among the also-rans.
The other schools that will

are fairly new to collegiate sail-

The frst race is scheduled to
cross the starting line at Whit-
more at ten o'clock this morning,
weatherpermitting. The Wolver-
ines have been severely handicap-
ped so far this season with high
winds and rough water . out at
Whitmore, and they think it's
about time for a change for the
better.
