a trifle slower than in the singles.

the Michigan team in the first set, but

Oklahoma Next
As a whole the match was most
gratifying. Although Michigan lost it
conclusively showed that they are ca-
pable of doing great things in ten-.
nis. The defeat was not unexpect-
ed. The men's playing was of a cal-
ibre that should enable them to eas-
ily triumph over Oklahoma, who will
furnish the competition for them at
2:30 o'clock on Monday afternoon.

time for the half and are giving pro-
mise of becoming performers if they
continue to improve as they have dur-
ing the spell of good weather.
Isbell ran the mile in 4:36 1-5 which
is slower than was expected of him.
In the start, Isbell, Nichols, and Heap-
py all set a fast pace and maintained
it for the first three laps, but seemed
to die on the last lap. Nichols and .
Heappy have made the best of the fine
weather and displayed fine form and
endurance while running.
Only one accident marred the aft-
ernoon's runnig. It came when Am-
stetz collapsed in the sixth lap of the
two mile. He had been running a fine
race and it was expected that he would
lower the time that he made indoors
for the two mile. He had just passed
Slenefield, over whom he had a hand-
icap of 75 yards, when he contracted
an acute pain in his side which forced
him to stop. Shenefield continued
the grind and turned in 10:38 for the
distance. Shenefield showed an im-
provement over his indoor perform-
ances as did Amstetz. Amstetz is
Archie's hope "for the two mile, and it
.will be a matter of getting rid of the
side pains until he will be a star of
the first water, for he has plenty of
stamina for such an event. Shenefield
is displaying more form every day and
will eventually become a good miler.
Hubbard Wins

tor. is unusually optimistic since the:
freshman outdoor time trials on Fri-
day. The time turned in by the yearl-
ings was exceptionally good, especial-
ly for the first time trials held out of
doors. Most of the men showed mark-
ed improvement in their form, but as
a whole they very well proved that
they need a good deal of experience
before they can secure the best ,rec-
ords. The most noticeable faults were
those of the distance, men and the
broad juinper. Sometimes the run-
ners would start too slow, and then
again they ,would set too fast a pace,
while the broad Jumpers overstep-
ped the take off too many times to
turn in good marks.

most pleasing to Coach Hahn. Roes-
