Team Entered in Special Event at
Cleveland a Week From
Michigan's varsity track squad will
bring the indoor season to an end
Saturday, April 12,, when the two mile
relay team will run a match racea
against Ohio State, Notre Dame and
Ames at Public Hall, Cleveland. The
race will be one of the feature relays'
of the interscholastic track meet be-.
ing held under the auspices of the
Cleveland Athletic club.-
The remainder of the squad brought .
its indoor season to a close with the
Cornell meet last Saturday night and1
is taking a rest during the present7
week before starting preparation for1
the outdoor season. The team will re-
sume training next Monday afternoon
for the opening meet on the outdoor
card, the Ohio relays, to be held at
Columbus under the sponsorship of'
Ohio State university late this month.

Bowen and Roesser have the besta

On the Michigan yearling squad
"Buck" is going in gr-at shape and is
considered one of the best sprint men
working under Hoyt. He earned hiv
indoor numerals and there seems to
be little doubt but that he will make
excellent material for Varsity next
year. In Hester, Sterling, Parker and
Leschinski, the Freshman track squad
possesses a quartet of speed-mer-
chants that has seldom,. if ever, been
surpassed by any first-year class.
These men have had several memor-
able races during the indoor season
and much is expected from them on
next year's Varsity squad.

outstanding Canadian sprint stars'

into two groups, which will be pitted
against one another in a champion-
ship series. Each group will hold
scrimmages to form their representa-

teams, Army and Navy, will play
three gamies for the "title."
More than 35 men have been work-

months and these men, as well as
many others who were unable to work
out because of basketball will be out
in uniform after vacation.
Practically all of the freshman foot-

determining the list of candidates who
are to be invited back for early prac-
tice in the fall.

Ohio Plans MeetE
Ohio is making extensive plans for
its first annual outdoor meet. Sim-1
ilar to the Illinois relays in the indoor
season it will have events for high
school athletes, small colleges, and
universities. There will be 15 events
for Ohio high schools, four events for
Ohio Conference colleges, and two ev-
ents for Western Conference schools
alone. These will be a one mile relayj
and a- medley distance relay, neither 1
of which Michigan will enter. Therel
will also be three relays in both the
open college and the university class-
es, in which any school in the coun-
try will be allowed to enter teams.
There will be a four mile relay, a two
mile relay, and an 880 yard relay in
each of the two classes.
Michigan will enter in the two mile
university class relay together with
all of the special events. These latter
will include the pole vault, the high
jump, the 100 yard dash, and the 120
yard high hurdles. Brooker will be
sent to the meet to try for a first in
the pole vault while both Smith and
MacEllven will probably compete in
the high jump. Les Wittman who has
succeeded in winning practically every
'race iiu the indoor season and who
equalled the world's record time in
the 75 yard race against Cornell Sat-
urday night will undoubtedly be pres-
ent to take part in the century dash
against the foremost sprinters in col-
legiate circles. Hubbard will be a
likely entry in the 120 yard high
Bruin Baseball
Leader Ineligible
University of California, April 2.-
Captain Thompson of the University
of California Varsity baseball team
was recently declared ineligible for
further vamsity competition although
he still retains his amateur rating.
His being barred came as the result
of a violation of a conference ruling
which prohibits playing with, an out-
side baseball team between the start
cf the fall semester and the close of
the spring semester.
Duffy Gerlach has been appointed
captain by Coach Carl Zamloch. Al-
though Thompson's disbarment will
reduce the efficiency of the squad
as a whole, Coach Zamloch hopes to
round out another championship year.
