ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Member of The Associated Press. Sc Per Copy. ALTON, ILL., SATURDAY. MAY 31, 1952 Established January IS, 1836. Illini Qualify 16 in Track Championship Michigan Only Threat to Johnson's Protepps By IIAHKV STAPLER ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 31. A> —Favored Illinois barged into the finals of the Western Conference track and field championships today and needed only to fight off 1he challenge of Michigan to grab all of the conference's four major titles of the 1951-52 season. By qualifying 16 finalists yesterday to Michigan's 12, Illinois' defending champions were in good • position to add the track title to (lie Big Ten football, basketball and baseball crowns. Illinois shared the baseball title with Michigan. Michigan's chances to topple flic Illini rested with its distance duo of Don McEu-en and John Ross. Shot putter and discus thrower Uo- land Nilsson and dash-man Jack Carroll. Illinois put its hopes on dash-man Cirilo McSween. hurdler Joel Mo Nulty, pole vaulters Dick Coleman and Dick Calish, high-jumper Ron Mitchell and dash-man Willie Williams. Michigan Slate and Towa qualified seven men each for today's finals at the University of Michigan's Ferry Field. Behind them came Indiana with five, Ohio State and Minnesota with three each, and Northwestern, Wisconsin and Purdue with two each. The preliminaries, staged before 4000 sun-bathed fans, went, about as expected. Illinois slipped in the dashes, but did better than expected in the hurdles. Koss Rpcovered Michigan made up for some minor disappointments when Ross, Ilia week ago, qualified easily in a flash-fast 880-yard heat. Illinois' Henry Cryer won the heat: in 1:51:9—believed to be the fastest Big Ten preliminary time ever recorded. No qualifying trials were held in the pole vault, high jump, one-mile, two-mile and one-mile relay. Illinois' Coleman and Calisch, who jumped 14 feet five inches earlier, were favored in the pole vault, and Mitchell was the high jump favorite, although he expected to get competition from Michigan's Milt Mead. The-two tied at the Southern Relays at Birmingham, Ala. Michigan's Ross and" McEwen were the choice to battle one-two in the mile race, with McEwen perhaps taking it easy and settling for second. Later in the day McEwen was to need all his energy in the two-mile duel with Rich Gerguson, sensational Iowa freshman. Iowa's team was the choice in the one-mile relay, with Michigan and Illinois pressing. Illini qualify in Every Event Illinois placed at least one man in each of the nine qualifying events: Michigan missed qualifying in only the 220-yard low hurdles. Both Illinois and Michigan came up with the day's best performances in three events. The Illini's McNulty breezed over the 120-yard high hurdles in 1-1.7. Cryer won the 880 and Willie Williams pounded home first in the 220-yard dash in 22.1 Michigan's Jack Carroll won the 4'10-yard dash in 49 seconds flat, Horace Coleman leaped 23 feet 3 7 s inches in the broad jump, Nilsson whirled the shot put 54 feet. Illinois also qualified Williams in the 100, McSween in the 440 and 220, Wilbur Thomson in the 120-yard high and 220-yard low hurdles, McNulty and Joe Corley in the 220 low hurdles, Stacey Siders and Law!on Lamb in the 880, Joe Gonzalcs in 220, Tom Floyd and Clark Hillor in the broad jump, Marvin Derelict, in the shot- put and discus, and Art Twardock in the discus. Michigan also qualified Bill Konrad in the 100 and 220, Walt Atchison and Van Bruner in the 120- yard high hurdles, Ross and Aaron Gordon in the 880, Tom Johnson in the shotput, Nilsson and Roy Pella in the Discus. Other best performances were: James Golliday, Northwestern, 100-yards, 10,0; Tom Hughes, Purdue, 220 low hurdles, 24.0; George Holm, Minnesota, discus, 159 feet 10% inches.

True, two games do not make a ;season, but Gil Hodges. Dodgers' j first baseman, and Minnie Minoso. [ the White Sox great 1951 freshman 1 otilfii'ldfr, pounded (be ball yesterday in a manner that brought joy to their followers. Hodges broke out of bis dismal .198 balling slump to drive home eight runs as the Dodgers whipped Ihe Boston P.raves 5-I and II-2. He uon Ihe first will] a three-run homer in the eighth and nailed down Ibe second with another three-run blast in the fifth. At the end of Ihe Memorial Day douhleheader, Gil was sporting a more respectable .227 average and the Brooks trailed (lie National League leading New York Gianls by only a half-game. .Minnie Krturns Minoso, idle since May 18 with lorn ligaments in his right foot, played an important role in tightening Iho American League pennant scrap. He bad only a .237 average Koing into the twin bill, but when Ibe day's work was done it was three points higher as Ihe result of three home runs that led the Chicagoans to a double victory over the pace-setting Cleveland Indians, 7-2 and 3-1. Minnie hit a three-run homer in the seventh of the opener to break a 2-2 deadlock and belted round trippers in the fifth and seventh innings of the nightcap to provide Joe Dobson with the margin of victory. The Giants lost ground by dividing a doubleheader with Philadelphia, dropping the opener 3-0 and winning the second 4-2. The Chicago Cubs whipped the Cincinnati Reds, 7-6 and 11-0, and Joe Garagiola pounded out a three-run ninth inning homer to give the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates a 4-3 win over St. Louis after the Cards had won the.first encounter 3-2. Bosox Move Up And in the American League the Boston Red Sox moved within a game of the Indians by capturing the nightcap, 5-3, after Eddie Yost's three-run ninth inning homer gave the Washington Senators a 5-2 win in the first half of the twin-bill. The split left the Senators two games off the pace and the White Sox three. Meantime, the Yankees found troublesome foes in little Bobby Shantz and Bob Hooper as the Philadelphia Athletics took two from the world champions, 2-1 in 14 innings and 4-2. The champs trail by three and one-half games. The Detroit Tigers and St. Louis Browns broke oven in the other doubleheader. The Bengals won the second in 12 innings, 8-5, with two bases-loaded singles, after the Brownies had captured the opener, 3-2 on a double by Joe De- Maestri, S ports American Association Hit Hard By Television Boxing Big 10 Athletic Maxie Hooper Commissioner American League ' Km> ' 8 f T i n .

The purse will depend upon the undisclosed attendance, which looked like the biggest ever—maybe 200.000. Vukovich and car owner Howard Keck of Los Angeles may get $18,000, and $15,000 of that will represent Vukovich's earnings for leading 150 of the 200 laps.
