ichigan Favored in Broad Jump and
Weights; Calif. in Three
, rE:lents
With but one more day of practice
efore this year's premier dual track
eet, the University of Michigan track
lam and the California cinder stars
e primed for the big contest which
kes place inthe California oval to-
orrow afternoon. As the center of
;traction in the largest University
ay 'celebration ever staged by the
ears, the Wolverine squad is pre-
ared to give their strong opponents
e hardest competition that they have:
t experienced.
California Favored
Advance rumor on the meet gives
e Far Westerners the best chance
r-annexing a victory, their men hav,
ghad the advantage of working out-
>ors all season while -the Michigan
am has had but 10 days on the cin-'
ers. There is no one, however, who
oes not look for a most interesting
ash, for California, 'it must be said,
is an exceptionally strong team. Be-
iming the season with a squad
hich was not thought to be particu-'
rly pbwerful, the Bears have un-
ivered a mighty wealth of material
id as a result possess What is con-
dered one of the strongest teams for
dual meet in' the country.
Michigan's team, on the other hand,
by no means a weak sister. As the
ear has progressed Coach Farrell's
lhletes 'have shown a marked im-
ovement. The 15 men who have
oe to the Pacific are not at all
nediocre. Every man is a track man
ad under 'Steve's tutelage have pro-

The two mile finds Freeborne and
Douglas from Ann Arbor and Mejia
and Dorf from Berkeley. Just what
Freeborne may do is not known but
he is not placed as a winner. He has
plenty of stamina and may possibly
come across, however, a little farther
up than some dypesters would place
him. Drr seems to have the call
among the majorty of follower; of the
cinder sport.
Hurdles Doubtful
What the 120 yard high hurdles will
bring out is a matter of conjecture.
Captain Butler's team has Cruikshank
and Dunne for its entrants, while Cap-
tain Sprott's-squad shows the names'
of Henderson and Drew. Neither team
has done anything remarkable in this
event and Michigan runners have only
been going 120 yards over the sticks
for the last few days. Caliirnia con-
siders the hurdles as its weak events,
in which case Cruikshank may come
through for firsts.
The 220 yard low hurdles will see
the same Michigan runners as in the
highs while California has added the
name of Drew to.its list of hurdlers
for this event. No pred-iction as to
the outcome of this race can be safe-'
ly made. Dunne can be counted on to
give the California men a run for third
place, while Cruikshank must be ser-
iously considered for first honors.
Michigan's chaidces in the high
jump will probably be limited to a
third place. Forbes and Wesbrook
for Michigay are not in a class with
Muller and Henderson of California,
the last two men being given first and
second places respectively.
Entries in the pole vault show the
names of but one man for each school.
Wesbrook wears the Maize andBlue
and Norris carries the Blue and G(old.
Both of these men have done better
than 12 feet with the California vault-
er having cleared several inches high-
er than Wesbrook. Wesbrook is a con-
sistent performer, however, and un-
der stress may top his old record
by several inches.
Shot Put to VanOrden ,
The shot put list have VanOrden
and Stipe for Michigan and Majors,
Muller, and Mathews for California.
Michigan is expected to take first
in the person of VanOrden, while
Stipe and Majors are doped to fight it
out for second honors. Michigan
seems assured of at least six or pos-
sibly eight points here.

In the hammer, Stipe, VanOrden.
and Dunne will throw for Michigan
while Waltz is the heaver for Cali-
fornia. Stipe is , the Varsity's best
bet and .looms as the probable win-
ner. With only one California en-
trapt, Michigan is suie of two places
in this event, also.
Michigan is doped to take both first
and second in the javelin. Hoffman
and Dunne for the Maize and Blue
should score in the order named while
third place will go to Caifornia in the
person of either Majors or Muller.
The discus finds VanOrden, Dunne
and Hoffman hurling the plate for
Michigan while Majors and Muller
will sling it for California. If Dunne
lives up to his past form in this event
he is credited for either a first or
second. What the Bears can do is un-
known but their record this year has
not been exceptional in this event.,
Cruikshank Jumping Well .
Because of Cruikshank's remark-
able jumping in, practice yesterday
afternoon on the Coast, Michigan is,
given first place in the broad jump,
while Wesbrook the other Varsity en-
trant is looked .to for more points in
this contest. Mullers and Arkley will
contest Michigan's claims in the flying
As a fitting end to what is expect-
ed to be a closely contested meet

Big League Games
Start Nex t Week
With 16 teams wending their way
northward for the openting of the 1921
Big League baseball season interest'
among the fans is growing greater and
greater. The Big League season this
year starts at about the usual time,
the American League-opening on April
13 and the National League on the fol-
lowing day..
Despite last year's baseball scandal
the sport seems to be as popular this
spring as ever and practically all the
tickets for 'every one of the opening
day games have already been sold.
Last week the two St. Louis teams,
played an exhibition game in that city
and 20,000 enthusiastic fans turned
out for it.}
,Campus attention is of course cen-
tered on the Tigers and it is hoped
that Ty Cobb will be 'able to bring the
team up into the first division. The
Tigers have lots of good material and,
if anyone can develop it, Cobb is the
- At the present time dope points to
Cleveland as the American League's
best bet, with New York, Chicago and

St. Louis also slated for the first di-
vision, so Ty has a hard row to hoe.'
In the National League a hot fight
is promised. Pittsburgh has been
strengthened greatly by the addition
of "Rabbit" Maranville, Boston's star
shortstop and should give B'rooklyn
and Cincinnati a tight race for first
place honors. The Reds will be great-
ly crippled by the loss of Heinie
Groh, who has refused to play with
them this year, while the Brooklyn
club has their last year's pennant
winning team practically intact. These
three teams along with St. Louis and
New York should make a fast race
all through the summer.
Following are the opening day

No. 4

Coach ArchieHahn is working daily
with the freshman track team at Fer-
ry field. The squad, numbering about
80 men, shows great promi e and
should develop some valuable mater-
ial for the Varsity next year. There
is - no one particular star although
every event has several men that look
good. The distances, the hurdles, and
the high jump are the events in which
the men are showing up best, especi-
ally in the mile and the half mile,
events in which the Varsity is weak,
there is a great deal of promising
Arndt is staying a little ahead of
the others in the mile but he is very
closely pressed by Bowen, Marston,
Coryell, and Krzy ainski. Arndt is
also running well in the half mile as
are Hattendorf, Weeks, Davis, and
Rearick. In the 440 Simmons, Davis,
Morgan, and Weeks -are doing 53 and
54 seconds, better than any of their
teammates, although Chubb, Ward,
and Nash are doing good work. Purdy
