Unexpected Performances by Maize
and Blue Men Boost Hopes
for Michigan
Michigan showed to great advantage
In the meet last Saturday against Cor-
nell, thus reviving the hopes for the
rest of the season which have been
at a low ebb following the Conference
indoor contest at Evanston. Unexpect-
ed performances on the part of many
of the members of the team make
Michigan seem stronger than has been
The great surprise of the smeet was
Burns' sensational sprint in the 880
which enabled him to put this event,
conceded to the Red runners, into the
Michigan win column. Up to that time
the score had been tied and would
probably have been so until the meet
was decided by the relay, but Burns
turned the tide toward the Wolver-
ines, and Cruikshank and Swift fin-
ished it by winning a most satisfac-
tory first and second in the low hur-
Cruikshank Wins
Cruiksh'ank's' misfortune in the
high sticks, his tripping on the fourth
flight, when he had a short lead, made
his victory in the low event highly
popular with the crowd. Swift prov-
ed one' of the dark horses of the meet
by winning his heat in easy manner,
and then following Cruikshank over
the line in the finals.
Cal Wetzel added to the sensations
of the evening by passing Captain
Butler on the final sprint of the 440,
winning by a stride in the extremely
fast time of 42 1- seconds. This show-
ing upholds Michigan's claim of pos-
sessing the best quarter milers. in the
Middle West, and these two runners
should take two places for the -Maize
and Blue in every meet this season.
With Forbes added when necessary,
Michigan can be assured of the most
dormidable middle distance men, and
also one of the best, mile relay teams
in the country. Butler and Wetzel
should give Hendrixson, the California
star quarter miler, a close race when
Michigan goes to the coast this spring.

California soil April 9, defeated the

Months of faithful training at a

ated Saturday night at the Detroit
Athletic club when G. Warren Hyde,
'23, won the much sought for title of
state breast stroke champion from
Paul Roberts, captain of the Detroit
Athletic club team. Two Wolverine
entries had qualified in the afternoon,
Henry L. Parker, '21, swimming un-
attached, having won his heat by a
narrow margin from Norman R. Han-
son, '23, and two entries from other
parts of the state, while Hyde was al-
so copping qualifying honors. The
four finalists were Hyde, Parker, Rob-
erts, and Pete Lisberg, National A. A.

U. junior champion. Roberts took the
lead at the start, setting a pace that
was aimed to tire the Michigan star.
That his attempt was a failure was
evinced as the last half of the dis-
tance commenced and Hyde forged to
the lead. Lisberg, coming-fast, had
passed Roberts on the down stretch,
and Parker, by a wonderful spurt,
caught and passed the D. A. C. crack,
failing by a narrow margin to swim
home ahead of Lisberg, who took

Dash Men Do Well
The dash men again vindicated them-
selves in a most satisfactory manner.
Losch and Burke had little difficulty in
winning from the Cornell entrants in]
the first heat, and Kelly and Simmons
turned the same trick a little later.
With the four Michigan men in the
finals, the only interest lay in the or-
der they would place.
VanOrden continues to improve in
the shot put, and by the time of the
ITipiois dual meet he should be a riv-
al of Weiss, the IllinI heaver, who won
the indoor Conference meet, With
Michigan to contest this place which
was conceded to Weiss on the gradua-
tion of Higgins of Chicago, and Baker
of Michigan,' the Illinois score at the
outdoor Big Ten meet hoUld not be
as high as has been figured.
The Michigan relay team proved to
be all that its fondest advocates hop-
ed by lowering the Waterman record
by one and four-fifths seconds, for
the eight laps. Butler's brilliant
sprint, which wound up an exciting
meet in a happy manner, was a fitting
climax to a great victory over a great
and dangerous foe,

They have been putting everything in-I
to their efforts in preparation for the
outdoor season which will open in two
weeks on the Pacific coast. These men
have often practiced twice a day and
the showings that have:been made are
highly pleasing to Coach Farrell.
Fiye Men Out Daily
The squad is at present composed
of Hoffman, Dunne, Jacob, Tidy, and
Stipe. Hoffman, who last year set a
new record in the javelin throw, is
showing his old form. Although the'
attention of the men is at present be-
ing directed to getting the correct
form in their events, Hoffman has
been throwing the javelin around 160
feet, "Duke" Dunne of Olympic fame
is getting about the same distance on
his heaves. "Duke" has mastered a
new style of throwing and may be ex-
pected to outdistance the field before
the season is over. Tidy has been
consistent around 155 feet and with
warmer weather should add several
feet to his throws. Jacob is sailing
the discus in good form and should be
a point winner this season. He has
been throwing around 125 feet. Dunne
is not far behind him with several
tosses around the 126 foot mark. These
men should prove to be a valuable as-
set to the squad. Stipe and Dunne
are working out with the hammer and
are getting away with creditable
Majors Good Javelin Thrower
These men will be seen for the first
time in action when the Wolverines
meet the well balanced California
team April 9. Aided by the better
weather conditions the Bears should
be strong in these events. Waltz,
California hammer thrower, is doing
130 feet. In the discus throw Muller
is making 125 feet consistently. Ma-
jors, captain of the Bears' eleven that
defeated Ohio tate on last New Year's:
day, is a member of the discus squad'
and is at present doing about 115
feet. In the javelin throws Majors is
I equalling 173 feet, These records
show the California team to be real
contenders and the Michigan tean
will have to exert themselves to score
firsts in this meet although Hoffman,
Dunne and Jacob will be expected tc

Coach Mather has issued a call
for all freshman battery candi-
dates. Only first year pitchers
and catchers are being called at
this time. Men will report at 3
o'clock this afternoon on the
small field directly south of the
Ferry field club house. Candi-
dates should bring their own
equipment. Tryouts for other
positions will be summoned aft-
er the spring recess.



Charles Paddock, University of
Southern California, broke a world's
record last Saturday when he ran the
220-yard dash in 20 4-5 seconds. Four
watches caught him at that speed and
one at 20 3-5 seconds, Paddock placed
in two events last year in the Olympic
games. An attempt will be made to
have the Amateur Athletic union rec-
ognize the mark as official.
