After a week's layoff the Wol-
verine cindermen are off and run-
ning again.
Tomorrow they journey to Co-
lumbus for the twenty-second an-
nual Ohio State Relays. "This
will be a good indicator of our pro-
gress outdoors," commented Coach
Don Canham.
The trackmen, who have been
plagued continuously by bad
weather here during practices, will
be competing in only their second
meet of the outdoor season. Two
weeks ago the team flew down
to the South Carolina Relays and
walked off with five firsts and
five meet records. They also tied
with Maryland, the IC4A Indoor
a~ Eastern champs, for the most first
places, although no points were
counted in the meet.
Cancel Out
"After our good showing down
in South Carolina, we decided to
cancel out of the Ohio Relays in
Athens last week and just have
field and time trials," Canham
confessed. "The boys needed a
weekend to prepare for finals and
we were generally impressed with
South +rolina so we used that

Ohio State Relays tomorrow," he showings from our 440, 880, mile

amare, who leaped 15'3%" at
South Carolina, is already con-
sidered to be one of the favorites
at the Big Ten Outdoor Cham-
pionships in May.
Next week the cindermen travel
to Philadelphia for the annual
Penn Relays, then face the Chi-
cago Track Club, Penn State, and
Indiana on successive weekends
leading up to the Big Ten Out-
door Championships May 21 and
22 at Iowa City. The NCAA Cham-
pionships are at Berkeley, Calif.,
June 17, 18 and 19.

Michigan's baseball team faces
an unbeaten Detroit squad to-
morrow at 1 p.m. in a double-
header which could show how
ready the Wolverines are for the
Big Ten season.
Head Coach Moby Benedict
plans to use senior southpaw Clyde
Barnhart in one of the games,
and said yesterday that either
sophomore Bill Zepp or junior Bill
Wahl will get the nod in the other
game.
The Titans have a six-game
winning streak going for them this
season, after giving Ferris State
a double shellacking Wednesday,

11-0 and 4-0. In a doubleheader
last Saturday, Detroit bounced
Kalamazoo, 7-0 and 5-2.
Last season the Wolverines mas-
tered the Titans twice. The first
game went 13 innings and Mich-
igan came out on top, 11-6, and
the second contest was a close 5-4
affair. The Wolverines' second vic-
tory cost the Titans a berth in
the NCAA baseball championships.

MODERN TRACK:
Money Authorized
For New Facilities

At last, the Michigan cindermen
will have what they can call a
"home track." At a meeting last
week the Board of Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics voted to
modernize the antiquated dirt
track which surrounds (the orig-
inal) Ferry Field.
The track which was built in the
20's has been the scene of many
memorable performances, includ-
ing Jesse Owen's remarkable world
shattering feats in 1936. However,
it has withered away each year
and now has become almost im-
possible to practice on, much less
run championship meets on.
According to track Coach Don
Canhm, the Board will provide
up to $30,000 for the uplifting.
Shift!
Original plans call for a shift of

the track five feet towards the
stands and ten feet in the direc-
tion of the tennis courts. A two
inch asphalt foundation will be
layed and a one inch rubber sur-
face will cover it. The new track
is being modeled after the ones at
Kentucky and Ohio State.
International Lanes
Other features include a nine
"international lane" area for the
100-yard dash, rubberizing of all
field event runways, a cyclone
fence enclosing the track and new
equipment such as hurdles.
"Work will begin in early June
and we hope to finish it by the
beginning of September," Canham
said yesterday. "We hope to hold
some regional and national meets
here in the very near future," he
added.

Michigan's tennis team opens
the Big Ten season this weekend
in home meets against Minnesota
and Purdue, but they won't be
playing on the tennis courts.
Because of snow, rain, and gen-1
erally bad weather throughout the
past few weeks the clay varsity
courts are not ready for play and
the meets will be held in the
Sports Building.
The netters will face Minnesota
at 1 p.m. today and Purdue at
the same time tomorrow. Minne-
sota and Purdue will play to-
morrow morning. Admission is
free.
The Wolverines have not been
able to practice outside since
their return from the southern
trip, and neither Minnesota* nor
Purdue have been outside much.
Coach Bill Murphy said yesterday
that playing in the Sports Build-
ing will give the Wolverines an
advantage because they have
practiced there so much.
After evaluating each player's
performance on the spring trip
and in matches played indoors
during the last four weeks, Mur-
phy named the lineup for the
weekend meets.
The number one singles spot
will be held down by junior Karl
Hedrick, who last year held down
the second singles position behind
graduated captain Harry Fau-
quier.
Jim Swift, who played in sev-
eral different positions last year,
has nailed down the number two
spot for the weekend contests
and captain Brian Flood will play
third singles, the position at which
he won the Big Ten title last year.
Seniors Jon Fraser and George
Russell have been taped for the
fourth and fifth positions respec-
tively. Jerry Stewart will be at
the final singles post.

Fraser, however, has been ham-'
pered by a bad leg and if he is not
able to play, Russell and Stewart
will move up a position and Hal
Lowe will take over the sixth spot.
The doubles pairings will be
Hedrick and Stewart in the num-
ber one spot, Fraser and Russell at
number two, and Swift and Flood
at third doubles.
In last year's contests the Wol-
Course Opens'
The University of Michigan
Golf Course will open for play
by students, faculty, alumni
and guests tomorrow. Starting
times will begin at 8 a.m., the
first two weeks. Reservations
may be made by calling Uni-
versity Golf Course, 663-5005.
verines whitewashed both the
Gophers and the Boilermakers by
identical 9-0 scores. In the final
conference standings Minnesota
and Purdue held the eighth and
tenthuspots respectively hwhile
Michigan finished second to In-
diana.
The Wolverines lost only Fau-
quier from last year's team and
should be strong again this year.
"We're looking much better than
we did in the South. In fact, I
think we'll be a pretty good team,
fairly strong all over and right
in the thick of the race," com-
mented Murphy.
Minnesota and Purdue should
also be improved this season.
Gopher coach Don Lewis has five
returning lettermen and, two
s t r o n g sophomores. The top

Gopher threat is Jerry Noyce who
will play first singles.
"Noyce is a very good player and
will probably give Hedrick quite
a battle," Murphy noted.
Purdue will field three return-
ing lettermen plus three men who
had some experience last year.
Junior Wayne Svoboda played
second. singles last year and will
probably take over the top spot
this year. The most promising of
the Boilermakerrsophomores is
Don Stone.
