Sloan, who won the grueling 440
in :48.7, and Bob Brown, who up.
set Dick Flodin by one-tenth of a
second with a clocking of :21.9 in
the 220.
Lawton Lamb won the mile, as
foreseen, for Chicago in a good
time of 4:17.3, far ahead of Michi-
gan's Geof Dooley and Al Lubina.
The presence of Moule would have
made for a tighter race.
Made up of University of Chi-
cago varsity trackmen and several
graduate and independent run-
ners, the Chicago Track Club made
a good showing, even though out-
classed completely in the weight
events, pole vault, high jump, and
broad jump. None of the Wolver-
ine entrants were at all pushed in
the field events as they won easily.
There are two reasons why Fer-
ry Field has been the scene for
only one track meet this season.
The first centers on the work be-
ing done in construction of the
new Sports Administration Build-
ing which necessitated the moving
of the high jump and other jump-
ing .pits.
Taste of Competition
Also, dual and triangular meets
seem to be giving way to bigger,
more-inclusive relays. Yesterday's
meet provided the hopeful Wol-
verines with a needed taste of
competition, however, before the
all important Big Ten Champion-
ship Relays at Columbus on May
27-28.
All eyes will be on the West
Coast tonight for the Coliseum Re-
lays at Los Angeles. A crowd of up-
wards to 65,000 will be on hand to
witness the nation's biggest track
meet with outstanding stars from
all over the country.
Coach Don Canham is looking
for his crack two mile relay team
to give Oklahoma A&M a good
run fori ts money in the invita-
tional event. The Aggies beat
Michigan earlier this year by a
hair at the Drake Relays,and the
quartet of Gray, Moule, Jones, and
Scruggs will be out for revenge.

Baseball Squad Faces
Indiana in Away Game

By ED BERNREUTER
Resuming action after last
weekend's triple defeat by Michi-
gan State, the Wolverine base-
ballers journey to Bloomington
today for a tilt with the Hoosiers.
Now that Michigan is definitely
out of the running for the Big
Ten baseball crown, the pressure
on the squad is lower than at any
time during the season. Watching
yesterday's workout clearly show-
ed this, and Michigan possibly will
do much better in its remaining
three games of the 1955 campaign.
Cellar Fight
Indiana, currently tied with
Iowa for the dubious honor of
last place in the Conference race
with a 3-7 record, will provide the
opposition in today's encounter.
Hoosier pitching thus far has
been adequate but hitting has been
poor, especially when needed most
--with men on base. Possible
starters in the battle to escape the
cellar are Jim Sanders, boasting
a 2-0 record, and Bill Dooley with
two wins and a loss.
In the hitting department Jay
Applegate is the only standout,
with a .333 average, and far out-
paces his teammates. Indiana's
weakness at the plate is further
evidenced by a last place rating in
conference team batting statistics.
Now holding on to fourth place
in the league race by virtue of a
7-5 record, Michigan will be eager
to avenge last weekend and also
gain a third place rating from the
Buckeyes. The Wolverines will
have ample opportunities in each
of tomorrow's two games at Col-
umbus.

try to turn back the Wolverines
and is given at least an even
chance to do just that. Pitching
and hitting have been fairly con-
sistent this season, and several
hitters are belting the ball at bet-
ter than a .350 clip. Probable
starters are Captain Dick Finn
and Harlan Burns, both posting
identical 3-1 records.
Coach Ray Fisher will probably
give the starting role on Friday to
either Don Poloskey or Jim Clark
with Dick Peterjohn standing by.
Marv Wisniewski, playing the
final game of his college career, is
sure to get one of Saturday's as-
signments against Ohio State.
Sophomore Bill Thurston most
likely will get the starting nod in
the other half of the double bill.
Needed power at the plate might
possibly be furnished the Wolver-
ines by Gene Snider, who, in spite

of his team's poor showing whack-
ed the ball at a terrific .500 clip
in the Michigan State series. Don
Eaddy, currently in a slight bat-
ting slump but still sporting a
healthy .372 average, also will
boost the team effort at the plate.

By DIANE LaBAKAS
Michigan's undefeated t e n n i s
team will attempt to extend its
winning streak today when it en-
counters powerful Indiana at
Bloomington.
Tomorrow the Wolverines jour-
ney to Champaign, Ill., to face the
Illini.
The matches will give Coach Bill
Murphy a good idea on how the
team will fare in the Big Ten
Conference Meet at Evanston, Ill.,
May 26-28 and will conclude the
dual meet season.
Stars Return
Although the Hoosiers lost three
of their top men through gradua-
tion, 1954 Conference titlists Bob
Martin (third singles), Bob Bar-
ker (fourth singles), Carl Dentice
(sixth singles), and the first dou-
bles champs John Hironimus and
Bob Martin will be back.
In addition Indiana will have
the services of star sophomores
Gerald Parchute, George Fryman,
and Elam Huddleston.
There is a good possibility that
Parchute, who hails fromr Ham-
tramck, Michigan, will be playing
against Dick Potter, his Ham-
tramck High School doubles part-
ner, now one of the Wolverines top
sophomores, in third singles.
Indiana Comeback
Since the Hoosiers were upset
by Kalamazoo - College in April
after winning 29 consecutive vic-
tories they have bounded back
with seven straight wins, includ-
ing victories over Michigan State,
Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois.
Michigan will pit sophomore
Barry MacKay, unbeaten in 11
matches, against Indiana Captain
Hironimus who has won five Big
Ten titles since 1952, in first sin-
gles.
Mark Jaffe will oppose Martin.
winner of three conference cham-
pionships, in second singles with
Potter probably opposing Par-
chute, Al Mann against Fryman,
Bob Paley playing Huddleston,
and Pete Pautus against Dentice.
Final Match
Michigan will then journey to
Champaign where they will play
Illinois tomorrow in their final
dual meet.

The Illini, although finishing
fifth in the conference last year,
are blessed with one of their fin-
est teams in years with only one
senior on the squad. They have
already defeated Purdue, Ohio
State, Michigan State, Wisconsin
and Northwestern.
Illinois' top man will be junior'
I Conrad Woods, 1954 Big Ten num-
ber one singles runnerup.
Murphy will use the same lineup
he employed against Indiana.

SOPH GOLFER:
Loeb Looks for Improvement

By MILT NATHANSON
He stands only 5'10" but he
plays an awfully big game of Golf.
The man in question is Henry
Loeb, a sophomore hailing from
Highland Park, Illinois.
Loeb, better known as "Hank,"
is one of the up-and-coming golf-
ers on the Michigan golf team.
Those who know him and have!
seen him play say his average of
78 for six matches so far this year
is bound to improve. Loeb, him-
self, isn't too happy with his play
at present and is sure that it will
improve shortly.
Impressive Against Spartans
In the opening match of the
season against Michigan State
Hank shot 77 and 82 to help the
Maize and Blue get off to a win-
ning start. Then, at the quad-
rangular meet at Ohio State, Loeb
looked impressive shooting a 79
and 77.
His best score of the season was
shot in a losing cause when he tal-
lied 76 and 75 as Michigan lost toI

Northwestern. Loeb's score was
easily the most impressive on the
Wolverine squad that day.
As a freshman last year, he
looked very promising, coming in
second in the Medal Play Tourna-
ment. In the summer of 1953,
Loeb competed in the Western
Amateur Tournament at Grand
Rapids, where he was pitted
against Harvie Ward, British Ama-
teur Champion. Loeb surprised
everyone when he defeated Ward.
Starred in High School
In high school he played number
one man for his team. During the
two years that Loeb played number
one man Highland Park high won
the Illiniois State High Golf
Championship.
Loeb, holder of a 3.1 scholastic
average, is living proof that ath-
letics and scholastics need not
clash. He is a pre-med student
and hopes to enter the Northwest-
ern Medical School.

NEW YORK (P-The Big Ten
Conference and the Columbia
Broadcasting System yesterday
concluded an agreement for the
regional televising of Big Ten foot-
ball games on the five dates allot-
ted to regional TV under the 1955
NCAA control plan.
CBS also will televise Big Ten
basketball games, beginning early
in December, in a program similar
to that carried last winter.
The agreement was announced
jointly by Kenneth L. "Tug" Wil-
son, Big Ten commissioner, and
Sig Mickelson, CBS vice president.
Eight National Dates
The NCAA plan this year calls
for national football telecasts on
eight dates, including Thanksgiv-
ing, and five regional dates. The
national program will be carried
by the National Broadcasting Co.
The Big Ten games to be tele-
vised regionally are:
Sept. 24 - Washington vs.
Minnesota at Minneapolis
Oct. 8 - Wisconsin vs. Pur-
due at Lafayette, Ind.
Oct. 22-MICHIGAN vs. Min-
nesota at Minneapolis.
Nov. 5-Wisconsin vs. North-
western at Evanston, Ill.
Nov. 12-Iowa vs. Ohio State
at Columbus, Ohio.
In addition, three games involv-
ing four Big Ten teams are on the
national program. They are Ohio
State at Stanford Oct. 1, Notre

Dame at Michigan State Oct. 15,
and Iowa at Michigan Oct. 29.
Thus viewers in the Big Ten area
will be able to watch a conference
team every Saturday from Sept. 24
to Nov. 12.
' Boxer Denies
TV Fight Fix
PHILADELPHIA (P) - Light
heavyweight boxer Harold John-
son told the Pennsylvania Ath-
letic Commission yesterday he did
not throw the May 6 nationally
televised fight to Julio Mederos.
Asked if he had been offered
money to lose the fight or if it had
been suggested that he lose, John-
son replied:
"If you mean did I throw the
fight, I certainly did not. I fought
the best I could. I wasn't myself.
I don't know that I was drugged.
I don't know what was wrong."
Johnson was a witness almost
two full days in the commission
hearing into the fight fiasco,
launched after hospital tests show-
ed Johnson was drugged with a
barbiturate.
The 26 - year - old Philadelphi-
an, in the third day of the probe,
testified he had rejected his man-
ager's offer to call a doctor to the
dressing room shortly before the
fight started.
