Despite Coach Ken Dohert's an- nouncement that indoor quarter- mile champion Bob Ufer, broad Jumper Elroy Hirsch and hurder Elmer Swanson would not com- pete, Michigan appears an almost certain winner by sheer weight of numbers. Most schools will have very few entrants, but the Wolver- Ines probably will qualify at least one or two men in every event. Michigan's undefeated tennis aquad should have little difficulty in-the tourney at Northwestern, opening rounds of which will be played tomorrow and the finals on Sunday. Stiffer competition is expected in i the golf meet tomorrow at Medinah I Country club, Chicago.

All fans of the city have been extended an invitation to turn out EVENING DRESS -- Frenchy Bor. dagaray goes simply about Inew white satin uniform worn by Brooklyn Dodgers in night games. ISavold 7-5 to IWin Over Baski New York -- .P3 -- Lee Savold, New Jersey's veteran heavyweight "Blond Tiger" is a 7-5 favorite to trounce young Joe Baksi again to- night in their return bout at Madi- son Square Garden, where boxing resumes after a lapse of seven weeks of the circus. The circus and its elephants moved out, making way for big fellows among the leather-tossers who should prevent any quick shrinkage of the garden's girders. Blond Savold of the Grecian pro- file is slated for 12 rounds with big, lumbering, brown-haired Bak- si from the coal mines of Kulp- mont, Pa• Savold won a cTose 10- round, decision over Baksi at the garden, March 10, when Baksi tried in the late going. Because Baksi faded in I0 heats. Larruping Lee is favored tonight over the longer 12-round distance because of his apparently greater stamina. Baksi is Younger But Baksi, who at 22 is six years younger than Savold, claims that his surprise defeat by Lee in March was due entirely to lack of condition. He says he took the Savold bout on short notice, inter- rupting his honeymOon with his bride, Anne. Also, his abbreviated training period was broken up by his mother's illness. He had no time to round into shape; so he tired for the first time in his career. Many experts agree with Baksi; they are convinced that he will rebound tonight in fine shape, and win out with his heavier punch, his youth, his ruggedness and weight advantage of about 10 pounds. He expected to scale about 20g, 10 more than Lee. However, Savold is favored in the smart betting because of his previous victory, because of his apparently superior-stamina, and because of his superb boxing skill and sharp hitting. A crowd of 15,000 and a gate of $0,000 are expected. Sailor Thinlies Invade Hilltop Milwaukee  (5') -- The Great Lakes Naval Training Center team. laden with former college stars, will invade Marquette stadium tomor- row afternoon for a dual track and field meet with the Hilltoppers.

The Redbirds gained a tie al- though kept idle by rain. Nick Polly wrecked the Brewers. He crashed his tenth home rain of the season and his fourth in four playing days in the fifth inning with te bases loaded. Polly aLso drove in one of the Colonel's two runs in the first for a double as the Kentuckians got 30 nits off Owen Scheetz in five innings. Charley Gassaway toiled three hitless in- nings for Milwaukee in a relief role• AI Widmar was the winning pitcher. The Brewers got him for two runs in the first inning and sin- gle tallies in the third and fourth but he kept them from further scor- ing until his mates had built up a safe lead. Bill Norman tripled and George Binks singled for the Brew- era' final run in the ninth. Louisville on Beam It was Louisville's ninth victory in its last 10 starts and its 10th in 12 home games this season. Sytvester (Stretch) Goedde, rookie southpaw, hurled his fifth straight victory as the Toledo Mud- hens divided a double header with St. Paul. The Hens won the second game. 4 m 2, after dropping the opener, 2 to 0• Goedde fanned six and limited the Saints to seven hits in the second contest. Veteran Otto Nitcholas, St. Paul righthander, held Toledo to two hits In pitcoing a shutout. The reviving Indianapolis In- dians won their third straight dou- bleheader, 6 to 5 and 6 to 1, over the Kansas City Blues. Husky Dave Odom took his first pitching victory in two years in the opener and in the nightcap Johnny Hutchins snapped his own losing streak. In the second game. the Indians :clinched the contest on Ed Morgan's, inside-the-park home run in the opening frame. The Indians produced a statistical freak by re- cording six runs, nine hits and one error in each of the games.

A brief sketch on the newcom- ers: Anna May Hutchison, a catcher from Louisville, Ky., who will un- derstudy "Choo Choo" Hickson, one of the loop's top receivers. Anna May, an 18-year-old who stands five feet. eight inches and weighs 135 pounds, is reputed to have a fine throwing arm and the ability to hit a long ball.

She is a portside batter and thrower, and was lead- ing hitter on her home town team which went to the quarter-finals at the national amateur girls soft- ball tournament in Detroit last fall. One of the most valuable new assets signed by the Belles this season is Dorothy (Boots) Ortman, a fiery little pitcher from Chicago who was regarded as the best area. teur hurler in the Windy City for five years• Pitching under her maiden name, Dorothy Ortman, Boots was colorful as well as dan. gerous on Chicago mounds. Her husband is now in service and she has returned to the diamond.
