By dint' of its decisive victory over.
Ohio State in a dual meet last Satur-
day at Columbus, Michigan's Varsity,
track team has greatly enhanced its'
chances for winning the Conference;
meet which is to be held Friday and
.Saturday at Ferry'Field.
The 'Wolverine tracksters showed a
decided improvement over their work
in the dual meet with Illinois, seven.
or the men coming through with im-
proved marks at Columbus. Coach
Steve Farrell took 28 -men with him
in order to give as many men on the
squad as possible an opportunity to
perform before the big meet. Brook-
er and Macillven, both consistent.
point scorers who should come through
this week-end, did not accompany the
Laimdo'wski Ready .
John Landowski, veteran pole vault-
er who won the national collegiate
title last year at Chicago with a leap'
of 12 feet nine and one-half inches,
and who was forced to confine him-
self to .the javelin this year because
of an injury, marked his return to
his favorite event by capturing see-1
ond place, elearing the bar f 12 feet
2' 1-2 inches. With another week's
practice Landowski should gain sever-
al inches in his leap and thereby puti
himself in a position to score in Sat-
urday's meet.
Hattendorf furnished one of the
many upsets in the meet by finishing'1
ahead of his teammate, Reinke, in
the half mile, negotiating the distance
in .1:57 1-5. This is the first time
that Reinke has eier been defeated
in the half mile it Varsity competi-
tion. These men should finish one.
and two in the Big Ten. meet.
Broad Jump Records Totter
By leaping 24 feet 11 1-2 inches in'
the broad jump, De Hart Hubbard
came within 3 1-2 inches of the
world's record, and bettered Carl
Johnson's Western Conference record
by 10., 1-2 inches. Hubbard has an
even chance'to smash the existing rec-,
ord held by Gourdin, of Harvard,
when on his own field and with favor-
able conditions.
Of the six records broken by the
Wolverines, two were shattered by,
the 4colored star' for besides making
a new mark in the broad jump .Hub-
bard created a new-field record in the'
high hurdles, being clocked in 1, 1-5.,

Snyder, Buckeye timber-topper, ran
Hubba-'d neck and neck all the way
but the judges awarded the race to
the Wolverine.
Wittman, showing wonderful im-
provement, won the 100 yard da. h in
ten seconds flat, tieing the Ohio Statej
field record. Gold vater, whom Coach
Farrell has brought from the ranks,
was a close second. Goldwater out-
stripped his teammate in the 220 how-
ever, winning this race in 22 1-5.
Martin Comes Through f
Running the best race of his career,
Martin filased across the tape a win-,
ner in the 440, his time establishing
a new mark, being 49 2-5. The other
Michigan entries this race, Joyner and
Siednons, finishing second and fourth
respectively, did under 49 4-5, thus
giving Michigan three star quarter1
milers for her mile relay team, which
should help considerably.
Prosser hung up another record in
the pole vault, hurling himself over
the cross bar at 12 feet seven and one-
eighth inches. In Prosser, Brooker,'
who seems to be at his best in com-
petition, and Landowski, Michigan has
a trio of vaulters who can hold their,
own with any other vaulter in the[
country. This should prove Michi-
gan's strongest event on Saturday.
1Veigl Events Stronger;
By hurling the iron ball 43 feet
seven and one-quarter inches, Van
Orden established a new record in the
shot put. Hindes placed second in the
shot and won the hammer throw with
a toss of 143 feet one-half inch,.a new
mark for this event. Van Orden got
a second in the discus, which Hunter
won with a .heave of 121 feet eight
and one-half inches. With Brooker
entered in this event Saturday the
'Maize and Blue should place at least
one man.
Bowen raised Michigan's hopes in
the mile event when he won this race
handily at Columbus in 4:30, .finishing
about thirty yards ahead of Hartzell
of Ohio State. Isbell ran true to fori
in .the two mile, winning this race in
9:41 2-5. He is almost certain'of lead-
ing the field home on Saturday. Smith
captured the high jump with a leap
of six feet without being extended the

With .entries pouring rapidly into
the offices of the Athletic association,
the third annual interscholastic tourn-.
apwint, to be held on Thursday, Fri-
day, and Saturday, 1willget under way]
on Ferry field with the biggest entry
list in its history.
More than 500 invitations have been
sent out by the Athletic association
and the results that are coming in'
daily show that the meet is sure to be
the most successful since its birth
three years ago. .
Outside Schools Strong
With one exception the four titles
decided in the past two years have
been captured by out-of-state insti-
tutions and it Is the intention of every
Michigan institution to hold both the
singles and doubles honors within the
boundaries of the state this year.
In 1921 the singles title went to Ohl,
of Scott high school, Toledo, and
doubles honors went to Tait and Kauf-
man of Central high school, Detroit.
In the tournament held last year,
which broke the 1921 record for en-
tries, the singles cup was won by Sag-
alowsky, of Shortridge high school,
Indianapolis, .while the same prep in-
stitution copped doubles honors, Sag-
alowsky being paired off with Dixon.
Recognized Importance .
The championships carry with them
not only state honors, but the Western

Chicago, Ill., May 28.-More than
1,500 people were hurled to the ground
today when a baseball grandstand col-

'escaped with slight injuries, although
28 men and 11 women had to be rush-
ed to nearby hospitals. After the in-
jured were cared for and the crowds
lispursed the game was resumed.

After waiting two years for some
action, Jack Dempsey is going to get
plenty of it all at once. Tom Gibbons,
Luis Firpo and Harry Wills are in line
for bouts with the champion. Gib-
bons and Firpo will be accommodate-
ed, but there still is a question wheth-
er Dempsey intends to fight Wills.
Jess Willard hopes to get a crack
at Dempsey this summer. Willard
must beat Firpo to get the match and
that is a large contract for the vet-
eran. If Dempsey were allowed to
follow his own inclinations he prob-,
ably would take en Willard as soon
as possible after the Gibbons affair'
at Shelby. Firpo would come next.
That program would take up Jack's
entire summer, so that he would have
a good excuse for passing up Wills.
Dempsey knows that the longer

that he has been offered the date and
has accepted the terms. It is now up
to Wills. Johnson says that if Wills
does not accept he will be matched
with the best man the promoters can
obtain for him.
There is a great deal of curiosity
to see Johnson in action. Whether
