MacKay Excels for Netters
In 8-1 Victory Over Indiana

(Continued from Page 1)
In the final match Larry Brown,
hampered by a hand injury, lost
to George Fryman 6-2 and 6-3.
This was the lone defeat of the
day for Michigan and the only
loss that the Wolverines have suf-
fered out of their last 36 matches.
Netters Win Doubles
The doubles play was by fat the
most exciting action of the day.

LOS ANGELES (P)-Jim Bailey
of Australia defeated his famed
countryman, John Landy, in a
special seven-man mile race yes-
terday and both eclipsed four min-
Bailey was timed in 3:58.6, a new
American record. Landy hit the
wire in 3:58.7. Ron Delany of Vil-
lanova was third in 4:05.6.
Bailey, 26-year old student at
the University of Oregon, became
the first man to break the four
minute mark in the United States.
He broke the American record
of 4:00.5, set in April 1955, at Aus-
tin, Tex., by Wes Santee of Kan-
Landy, who holds the world rec-
ord of 3:58, put up a desperate
fight but lost the lead to Bailey
about 110 yards from the finish
and could not overtake his rival.
Landy's comment: "Jim comes
from Australia, too, so we're quite
A roaring crowd estimated at
more than 40,000 turned out under
bright skies to see the race, a
special attraction in a dual Pacific
Coast Conference meet between
Southern California and UCLA.
Bailey, the NCAA champion,
took an opening lead but soon De-
lany took over the pace. He sur-
rendered it to Landy at the end
of the second lap.
The 26-year-old Landy opened
up a wide lead over Delaney. Then
Bailey moved into contention with
220 yards to go and went on to

After assuring themselves of the
victory by virtue of their 5-1 score
in the singles, the rietters fell be-
hind in every one of the doubles
MacKay and Potter, lax in their
first set lost to Field and Petrick,
3-6. They came back strong to
take the next match 6-3 and even
the series.
In the last and deciding set each
team held service for ten games
making the score 5-5. Then Mac-
Kay and Potter broke Petrick's
service and went on to win 7-5.
These two promising sophomores
from Indiana proved to be the
strongest opposition of the year
that last year's Big Ten doubles
champions have faced.
Jaffe and Harris after going
down 4-1 came back to outlast
Fryman and Huddleston in the
longest set of the day, 11-9. They
had no trouble in winning the
second set 6-1 from the demoral-
ized Hoosiers.
Jensen, Brown Win
In the final match of the day
Jensen and Brown defeated Dill-
man and Dentice; 6-2 and 6-3.
They had it the easiest of the
three doubles winners even though
they also fell behind at the out-

Top Choice,

LOUISVILLE, Ky. ()-Needles
threaded his way from next to last
place through a charging field of
horseflesh yesterday and with a
mighty stretch rush won the $167,-
550 Kentucky Derby, just like his
daddy did in 1949.
A big favorite of the roaring
crowd of some 100,000 excited spec-
tators jamming ancient Churchill
Downs, the strapping Florida-bred
colt brought the first Derby to
that palm tree state.
The result was never in doubt
midway down the long home
stretch as Needles stuck it into the
opposition, ^ finally overhauling
Calumet Farm's Fabius with less
than a sixteenth of a mile remain-
ing in the mile and a quarter race.
Jockey Dave Erb was the "eye"
of Needles and his bay charger,
who has confounded old Derby-
town with his dislike for training
chores, rolled under the finish
line three quarters of a length
ahead of Willie Hartack and Fabi-
us, one half of the Calumet entry
from Kentucky.
Come On Takes Third
Third place, another length and
a half behind, went to the surpris-
ing Indiana-bred colt, Come On
Red, who wasn't even supposed to
start this 82nd Derby unless the
track was muddy.
It wasn't, as sunshine and 80-
degree weather bathed the premi-
ses, and made the track fast as
greased lightning, although Need-
les' time for the mile and one quar-
ter was 2:03 2-5, well off Whirl-
away's record of 2:01 2-5 in 1941.
This was the second time in the
long Derby history dating back to
1875 that a son, a daddy and a
grandpop have nabbed the roses in
the great classic for 3-year-olds.
Ponder's dad, Pensive, a son of
English Derby winner Hyperion,
won America's most colorful horse
scramble in 1944 .
Although his time yesterday
wasn't among the fastest Derbies,
it did the job sufficiently, and
makes Needles a threat for the two
other triple crown classics, the

with the Chicago Track Club and Marquette, which Michigan won

Special To The Daily
LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Yesterday
just was an off day for the Wol-
verine linksters.
The golfers saw their five game
win streak and a Big Ten unde-
feated record go by the boards as
both Purdue and Ohio State
trounced Michigan in a triangular
meet at Lafayette.
The Wolverines lost to Ohio State
by a 23-11 count, and then to
Purdue by a 23-19 score. Ohio
State took first place honors, by
downing the Boilermakers by a
23-13 margin in the triangular
Only Fred Micklow and Bob Mc-
Masters had respectable rounds
for Michigan. Micklow came in
with a very respectable 153 for
the day activities, and McMasters
carded a 156.
Joe Campbell of Purdue, last
year's National Intercollegiate golf
champion returned to his great
form after a very poor round in
last week's match, taking medal-
ist honors for the meet with a 149.
Ohio State displayed a great
deal of balance in their victorious
effort, with three golfers scoring
153 or less. Fritz Schmidt had the
low score for the Buckeyes with a
152, followed by Rick Jones and
Mel Woelfling at 153.
OSU had only one man who fin-
ished with a score of 160 or worse,
while five of the Wolverine links-
ters failed to break the 160 mark.
Despite the wide spread in
points, the meet was much closer
than it appeared on the score card.
All of the scores of the three
squads were quite high.
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer com-
mented that Ohio State gave a
very impressive display of their
over-all balance, which is deflnite-
ly their strong point.
However, he still feels that the
three squads are still nearly equal,
and that on any given day, any
one of the three could take the
first place honors.
Michigan golfers, Steve Uelac,
John Schubeck and McMasters ar-
rived at the meet late last night,
and the all day drive took its toll
on their play.

ist honors for the third meet in a

Concluding its third week of
spring drills, the Michigan foot-
ball squad went through a two-
hour scrimmage yesterday after-
noon at Ferry Field.
Hard running by right halfback
Ron Kramer and freshman full-
back John Herrnstein highlighted
the afternoon session, but the
crowd on the sidelines was com-
pletely captured by the appearance
of a helicopter over the practice
The plane, owned by alumnus
Fred C. Matthaei of Detroit, landed
his maize and blue helicopter in
the adjoining practice field. Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan climbed aboard
and flew over his athletes as they
warmed up for the practice scrim-
However, Kramer, after partici-
pating in the track meet, caught
the attention of the crowd once'
again by scoring five touchdowns
in the long drill-one on a 70-
yard dash and another on a 50-
yard run.
He also crashed through for two

more on shorter plunges and pick-
ed up a counter on a forward pass
from freshman quarterback Bob
Herrnstein Scores
Herrnstein counted on a 60-yard
dash after veteran Ed Shannon,
playing at the right halfback slot,
had scored on a short line buck
on the Varsity's opening march.
Quarterback Jim Van Pelt tossed
two scoring passes to freshman end
Gary Prahst and two more to
sophomore end Dave Bowers, who
received beautifully all afternoon.
Captain Tom Maentz was absent
from yesterday's drills because of
an injury incurred during Thurs-
day's scrimmage. Maentz will prob-
ably miss the remaining drills also,
but, as Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
said, "We already know what he
can do."

Bob Brown also turned in a full

ways as Eeles Landstrom pole-
