ERLY FORECSTS
ROMISE BRILLIANT
TRAE PROSPECTS
(Continued from Page One)
that they will continue to improve.
One Veteran Sprinter
Only one veteran sprinter, Dick
Losch, is left, and around him Steve
will be forced to build his dash squad.
In 1918 Dick placed in the Eastern and
Western intercolegiates, and If his
bad tendon of last year does not
bother him again, he stands a good
chance to repeat. From the freshman
squad come Simmons, Kelly, and Har-
vey. All of thm look like fine pros-
pects indoors, especially Kelly who has
been tearing off 50 yards in fine style.
Simmons, a competitor in the Olympic
trials at Chicag'o last summer, did well
in the 100.
In the 440 Michigan seems the best
fortified. With Captain Larry Butler
standing out as perhaps the best quar-
ter miler in the Middle West, Steve ex-
pects to garner a number of points in
this long dash. Wetzel, Joiner, Louis,
Wheeler, and Meese are all reliable
men, who can be counted on for points
and as strong men on a mile relay
team.
Burkholder, Burns, and Douglas are
the most promising half milers. For
the past' two years Burkholder has
been a steady man, and only continued
illness last season kept him from
doing better than he did. Qualifying
in the Conference finals, although h<
.did not place, Douglas showed a steady
improvement throughout the year, an
if he continues at the same rate this
year, he may be counted upon as a
possible point winner. Burns, a fresh
man, seems to be one of the bes
yearling middle distance men who ha
been at Michigan in recent years.
Promising Material
The early performances of Denton
Lukins, Everett, and Leland indicat
that Michigan has fair material in thi
event. While it is too early in th
season to expect anything remarkabl
from these men, their consistent wor
portends development, which wil
probably strengthen what was th
Wolverine's weakest department las
year.
The Cross Country men, Hofstetter
Brannon, Penberthy, and Freeborne
have been training for the two-mile
There is a good chance that a Confer
ence point winner may come from thi
quartet, although it is much too earl:
to tell what will develop in this de
partment.
At putting the shot Steve has Stip
Van Orden, and Kidy working, all o
whom have been hurling the weigh
approximately 40 feet. To take an
places in a Conference meet thi
niark, good for this time, will have t
be bettered, however.
The Wolverine vault squad, We
brook, Slaughter, Naylor, and Lar
dowski, have been clearing the bar
11 feet 6. In this event Michigan wi
probably be the best represented. Wes
brook, Slaughter, and Landowski hav
all done more than 12 feet in actu
competition, an Naylor's steady in
provement last year marks him as
comer, who must be given serious cor
sideration.
Need High Jumpers
The freshman squad will have t
furnish the high jumpers for Coac
Farrell, both Johnson and Later ha
ing graduated. However, in Walke
Ward, and Platts, Steve has three har
workers, at least one of whom wil
probably clear the bar at six feet.

Green men are again to be found it
the hurdles. Spurrier, Sargent, an
Cruikshank look the best of the fief
indoors, but until outside work on th
cinders is given little can be known a
to what Steve will have in the way c
timber topplers.
As yet little can be said as to the
outdoor events, the hammer, javeli
discus, and broad jump. There seem
to be excellent material available it
these events, and if the men improv
constantly. Farrell may have a nun
her of pointwinners. Stipe remain
n the ammmer, and he appears to 1i
the best chance for points, having bee
fifth man in the Conference last yea
A strong javelin squad is left, Hoff
man, Dunne and Landowski all throw
ing the javelin as far as the marl
made in the Conference meet last Jun
"Duke" Dunne is the best diseo
hurler left, it seems at present, an
Cruikshank and Wesbrook, excellen
broad jumpers, remain to form thi
nucleus of a leaping squad.
Expect iDeveicopmient
All in all the material is promising
for a strong track team. The me
rientioned at pre,,(- ,t <are the mos
likely loking candidates, but ever
year there is material developed lat
in the season which adds greatly to,
team's strength. Not until the Ias
week in February when Michiga

meets Chicago in a dual meet at thej
Midway can some gauge of the Wol-1
verine power be made.
Until then Steve Farrell will be,
working his tracksters to the limit.
Not one school began workouts before
Wolverines did, and it is certain that
Michigan's men will be in condition
when the first test comes. Four or
five times a week the Wolvefines are:
training under Coach Farrell in prep-
aration for what is hoped will be a
successful track season.
