Two Hitter by Corbett
Fails To Stop Minnesota

Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS -- Michigan's
baseball team lost its first West-
ern Conference game yesterday
losing to Minnesota, 2-1, in the
first half of their double-header.
The diamond squad, led by the
pitching of southpaw Mary Wis-
niewski, came on in the second
game to win, 3-0, and salvage at
least a tie for first place in the
Big Ten.
GOPHER Paul Giel pitched and
batted hisk team to victory over-
Michigan, the win breaking an
eight-game winning streak of the
Maize and Blue and stopping the
personal four-game skein of pitch-
er Jack Corbett.
Corbett gave up two doubles,
one walk, and hit one batsman
over the nine-inning route, but
the Minnesota squad made the
most of its opportunities.
Frank Howell started the Wol-
verines off on the right foot in the
first inning when he blasted out
his fourth home-run of the season.
But in the sixth, the Gophers tied
the score as clean-up batter Gene
Elder slammed a double to score
right-fielder Frank Larson who
had drawn a walk.
* * *
THEN GIEL came through with
his two-base knock in the eighth
to chase in Jerry Clouthier who
had been hit by a pitch and that
was the ball game. Giel, who
quarterbacked the Minnesota foot-
ball team last fall, pitched fine
ball, striking out six and walking
only one man.
Howell and pitcher Corbett
both got a pair of base hits for
Michigan, but Giel had the stuff
in the clutches and after the
first inning he hung up eight
goose eggs next to the "Visitors"
bracket on the score-board. Don
Eaddy blasted out his sixth
triple of the season but was left
stranded with what turned out
to be the tying run.
In the abbreviated night-cap,
Wisniewski hurled his way to his
third consecutive shutout. He gave
only five singles and kept up the
day's trend toward hitting pitchers
by getting two safeties and batting
in a run.
* * *
OUTFIELDER Paul Lepley was
the pivotal figure in Michigan's
second game offense. He set up
the first run in the second inning
when he singled Eaddy, who had
walked, to third. Eaddy scored
promptly thereafter on an infield
out by Bill Billings.
Lepley led things off in the two-

run seventh inning by singling.
Billings then sacrificed him to
second, he took third on a wild
pitch offered up by Gopher Al
Andersen and and Lepley came.
home when Gil Sabuco rifled out
a base hit.
Dick Leach then got another
single but Sabuco was thrown out
going to third on the hit, Leach
taking second on the throw. Wis-
niewski then brought home the
Wolverines' third run of the game
with his second hit.
Wisniewski didn't look as sharp
as he did against Ohio State last
Saturday, but he won handily,
scattering five hits and walking
three. Anderson

Relay Team
Cracks Four
Mile Record
MeEwen, Ross
Set Rapid Pace
Michigan's four mile relay team
wrote a new page in the record
book yesterday.
The Wolverine quartet of John
Moule, Bill Hickman, John Ross,
and Captain Don McEwen, topped
the previous mark, held by. the
University of Kansas, by 7.3 sec-
onds in winning a special race in
Ypsilanti.
COACH DON CANHAM had ar-
ranged the event to give his har-
riers a shot at the new American
Record set last week in the Drake
Relays by Kansas. The team justi-
fied his confidence with a ven-
gence and blasted the old mark of
17:15.9 to bits.
Moule, a freshman, ran the
opening leg in the unofficial
time of 4:19.6. His .time estab-
lished a new freshman record
and broke his own previous rec-
ord of 4:19.9. Moule, a steadily
improving runner, had turned
in that clocking last week.
Hickman, the only American
member of the team, followed with
a 4:21.6 clocking for the eight
furlong gallop. Ross took his pass
and chipped in with a 4:16.1 mile.
ANCHOR MAN McEwen ran his
mile with the rhythmical clapping
of the crowd rooting him home.
The flying Scot turned in a mag-
nificent kick in his final quarter,
for which the fans gave him a
standing ovation. His time was a
beautiful 4:11.3, the best of the
day.
C o a c h Canham, naturally
happy, said, "It was a truly great
performance, especially f i n e
since all four men had to go
out in front and set their own
pace."
* * *
IN ITS ONLY other attempt at
the record in the Penn relays the
Wolverine team was slowed by rain
and mud and deprived of an op-
portunity for a record by the mis-
measured track.
Saturday the entire team will
journey to Champaign to take on
the fighting Illini in a dual meet.
It will be a prevue of the Big Ten
Championships to be run in Ann
Arbor May 30 and 31.

Six Lettermen Return at End
To Strengthen ichigan Line
<.;

By ALAN PRICE
With six lettermen ends and
one veteran center on hand the
Michigan grid squad appears to be
well fortified at these two vital
positions.
Captain Merritt Green heads the
list of returning wingmen that
includes Lowell Perry, Bob Ding-
man, Leo Schlicht, Gene Knutson,
and Thad Stanford. Graduation
losses at the flanks were Russ Os-
terman, defensive left end, and
offensive end Fred Pickard.
GREEN, defensive end last sea-I
son, may be slated for double duty
during the coming campaign be-
cause of his speed and blocking
ability. Perry is counted on to pro-
vide plenty of offensive punch at
left end. Last year he led the
Wolverine scoring parade with 30
points on five touchdowns, caught
16 passes for 395 yards, and was
an elusive ball carrier on end
around plays. The Ypsilanti speed-
ster was also used at the defensive
safety position where he was out-
standing on pass defense and punt
returns.
According to Bill Orwig, end
coach, Stanford is very much
improved over last year, and
should play an important part
in plans for the fall campaign.
Finding a replacement for Os-
terman at the defensive right end
spot is perhaps the biggest prob-
lem facing Orwig at this time.
Knutson, Stanford, and George
Dutter are likely prospects for the
job, although several others are
in contention. Among the new
men who have impressed the
coaching staff in early drills are
Stan Bounds, a first semester
freshman from Flint, Michigan,
Dick Rex, and John Veselenak.
Dick O'Shaughnessy, last year's

only letterman at center,, is ex-
pected to again -hold down the
offensive pivot spot. O'Shaughnes-
sy captured the Western Confer-
ence 177 pound wrestling cham-
pionship in March, and he report-
ed for spring practice in fine
physical condition.

Hill Gail Breezes to Derby Triumph
4,

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- (M)- Hill
Gail, backed by the greatest Ken-
tucky Derby combination of them
all, won the 78th running of the
turf"classic yesterday.
It was the fifth triumph in the
Derby both for Calumet Farm and
jockey Eddie Arcaro, and the sixth
for trainer Ben Jones.
* * *
NO OTHER owner, jockey or
trainer can match this record.
The fleet Hill Gail, favorite
from the start, was two lengths
in front of the 15 other three-
year-old thoroughbreds when he
completed the mile and a quart-
er in near record time.
The second horse was Sub Fleet
of Charles T. Fisher's Dixiana
stable. Blue Man, owned by A. W.
Abbott, finished third.
A ROARING crowd, estimated
by Churchill Downs at a record-
breaking 110,000 persons, saw Hill
Gale travel the Derby course in 2

minutes one and 3/5th seconds,
one fifth slower than the track
record.;
A nation-wide television aud-
ience, estimated by the Colum-
bia Broadcasting System at 50-,
000,000, also looked on as Blue
Man finished eight and three-
quarter lengths behind Sub
Fleet. Blue Man was second
choice in the betting.
Hill Gail's performance earned
$96,350 for his owners, the fabu-
lous Lexington, Ky., thoroughbred
factory owned by Mrs. Warren
Wright. Until today Calumet was
tied in Kentucky Derby victories
with the late E. R. Bradley's rec-
ord of four won.
* * *
THE TOTAL purse for the race
was $124,350.
The MICHIGAN
CREW CUT!!

The track was fast and dry
with a warm sun beating down
and Hill Gail came within a fifth
of a second of the 2:01 2/5 Der-
by track record established by
Whirlaway in 1941. Arcaro rode
for Ben Jones, and Calumet, in
that one, too.
Hill Gail, a handsome dark bay
son of Bull Lea-Jane Gail, had
tipped his class before a Louis-
ville crowd last Tuesday when he
went the one mile derby trial in
a romp and broke the track record.
