There has never been a Big Ten
school able to win three Confer-
ence track titles in one season.
Holder of the cross-country and
indoor championships, Michigan,
today for a win in the Big Ten
however, will be starting its quest
Outdoor Track Championship to
be held at Columbus this weekend.'
The Wolverines are rated as hav-
ing an at-least-even chance of be-
coming the first "triple crown"
winner in Big Ten cinder history.
The opening events today will
mark the 20-year anniversary of
JesseOwens' brilliant performance
in the 1935 championships held in
Ann Arbor.
Conditioning Important
Conditioning could very well
prove to be the key to any title
hopes. Michigan has three men in
doubtful shape, while leading-con-
tender Illinois appears to be far
better off physically than when
it competed in the indoors. In
fact, with hurler Jim Love weak-
ened by a pulled muscle, all-
around field man Ron Kramer
hampered by a sore hand, and
high-jumper Mark Booth still
bothered by a groin injury, coach
Don Canham is quite pessimistic
about the Wolverines' chances.
Valuable sprinter John Vallor-
tigara, who has turned in a :21.5
time in the 220, has been injured
all spring season, and he will not
even make the trip.
M' Slight Favorite
Despite the shaky condition of
several key stars, Michigan still
ranks as a slight favorite. There
are, however, too many unforeseen
factors that could alter the final
outcome of the 55th annual meet.
Besides Illinois, Michigan State
and Indiana also have to be reck-
oned with. The Spartans are par-
ticularly strong in the sprints and
could take away valuable points
from either the Ilini or Michi-
gan. The same holds true for In-
diana, especially if previously-
lame Milt Campbell is back in top-
flight running condition.
On a point-for-point basis, the
final score between Illinois and
Canham's squad should be very
tight. A reasonably conservative
estimation by Canham sees Illi-
nois winning "on paper" by a 44-
41% margin.
Only John Johnson is expected
to place high up in the sprints
against some of the fastest men
in the country-Jim Golliday of
Northwestern who recently tied
the world mark in the 100-yd. dash
in :09.3; Julius McCoy of MSC,c
who has cut his 220 time down to
:21.2; and Kevin Gosper, also ofa
State, holder of a handsome 440
clocking of :46.9 at this past week-
end's Coliseum Relays in Los An-
gsele.
Love Limited
Love will have his hands full
against Illinois' "deadly hurdles
duo" of Willard Thomson and Abe
Woodson in the 220 lows. Love will

be in no shape to run the 120
highs, especially since most events
will require a strenuous schedule
of running elimination heats,
semi-finals, and then finals.
The middle distances are where
the Wolverines are hoping to pick
up needed points. Pete Gray will
be hard-pressed by Henry Cryer of
Illinois, who has turned in a time
of 1:52.3 in the 880. Gray's best in
competition so far this spring has
been 1:52.4.
The mile run should be a close
one, with Iowa's Rich Ferguson
and 'M' captain John Moule placed
Sas favorites. Moule's best is still
3.6 seconds away from the 4:13.5
mile recorded by Ferguson this
spring.
Besides Ron Wallingford in the
two-mile, Michigan is also ex-
pecting to pile up points in the
mile relay, with Indiana rated as
a strong second, and in the field
events. Indoor shot put winner
DaverOwen will be a strong con-
tender to repeat. One or more of
the high-jump group of Booth,
Kramer, and Howie Liverance
could supply places. Tom Hend-
ricks and Junior Stielstra give the
Wolverines two of the top broad-
jumpers in the Big Ten.
If Kramer can come through to
place in the discus and Bob Ap-
pleman in the pole vault, the fl-
nal outcome of the Meet could
swing in Michigan's favor.
Wolverines Have Numbers
The championships will be
scored 5-4-3-2-1 for the first five
places, so that depth will be an-
other important factor. In sheer
numbers, the Wolverines have al-
most twice the number of entries
as Illinois.
Under this scoring system and
the 8-6-4-2 total for the mile re-
lay, every placing becomes impor-
tant in relationship to what it does
to the possible point totals of the
leading contenders. The Wolver-
ines can only "cross their fingers
and hope that the right things
happen at the right time."

A wide-open scramble for team
honors is seen as the Big Ten Golf
Tournament gets under way today
at Lafayette, Ind.
A field of 60 golfers will tee off
early this morning on Purdue's
hilly South course to start the 72-
hole grind, which will continue
through tomorrow.
The host Boilermakers, led by
Joel Campbell and Captain Don
Albert, loom as favorites, but four
other teams, including Bert Katz-
enmeyer's erratic Michigan Wol-
verines, are given a good chance
for the title. Ohio State is defend-
ing team champion.
Scored on Aggregate Medal Play
The meet is scored exclusively
on aggregate medal play; only the
total scores of each six-man team
are considered. Purdue's course is
6,392 yards long and par is 71.
Purdue is undefeated, Ohio
State has lost only to Purdue, and
Minnesota has yet to taste defeat.
Iowa possesses a fine seasonal rec-
ord and is rated a "dark horse"
contender. Michigan, sadly plagued
by a slump in recent weeks, re-
stored its confidence with a bril-
liant win at Detroit last Saturday

and will be a definite title threat
if it displays the form shown then,
Purdue Tough on Own Course
The Boilermakers, however, are
exceptionally tough to beat on
their own course, as was evidenced
by their crushing win over Michi-
gan and Ohio State earlier in the
season. Purdue has won the team
title seven of the last eight years.
Andy Andrews, Fred Loeb and
Steve Uzelac have improved con-
siderably in the last two weeks,
and could be at their playing peak
today and tomorrow. John Schu-
beck, who led the squad during the
early part of the season, has been
disappointing as of, late, but may
regain his winning form in time
to aid his mates. r
McMasters Raises Coach's Hopess
Bob McMasters has paralleled
Schubeck to a great degree, butK
his fine performances recently
have raised Katzenmeyer's hopes.
Fred Micklow has been improving
steadily all year, and has been
brilliant on occasion.
The Wolverines carry a medi-
ocre 5-6-2 record into the tourna-
ment, but seasonal records are not
always as significant in golf as
they are in other Conference
sports. Links coaches use dual
and triangular meets as testing
grounds for the all-important cli-
mactic tournament, and they ex-
periment much in these tests with
the aim of finding the six best
men for the championship try.

ber of players advanced to the
semi-finals. Two Hoosiers and
three Badgers were eliminated
from further singles competition.
Jaffe Defeats Vincent
Mark Jaffe joined MacKay in
impressively representing the Wol-
verines in the opening round. He
avenged his only conference dual
meet loss of the season by soundly
beating Wisconsin's Al Vincent in
second singles play, 6-3, 6-3.
Al Mann, Bob Paley, and Pete
Paulus all gained semi-finals
berths by defeating their first foes
in straight sets in the fourth, fifth,
and sixth singles competitions, re-
spectively.
Only Dick Potter, in the third
singles position, suffered an upset
for the Wolverines as he bowed to
Indiana's JerryParchute, 1-6, 6-3,
6-3. The Hoosier, trampled by Jaf-
fe earlier this season finally solved
Potter's blistering services in the
last two sets to win.
Michigan's doubles activity was
almost nil. Mann and Captain Bob

Nederlander had no opportunity,
because of the weather, to begin
the defense of their second dou-
bles title. Likewise, Jaffe and Pa-
ley, undefeated as a team, failed
to see action. Their work will begin
this morning.
MacKay and Potter did manage
to play a non-point-worthy pre-
liminary match with Jim Andrews
and Gene Nadig of Iowa. The Wol-
verines first doubles combo won
handily, 6-4, 6-2.
