ance this year. He is capable of do-

Voelker and Snider will compete

Callahan are entered in the two mile -
run. No men have been entered by
Coach Farrell in the low hurdles or
the high jump, because he feels that
the material on hand does not war-
rant places in the Conference. He
has taken every man he thinks has a
chance of placing in an effort to
garnish second, third and fourth places
as it is on the outcome of these that
the meet will be decided.
In the meet Saturday Michigan will
meet her strongest opposition from
Iowa, Illinois and Wiconsin, as the
other teams have not the all around

for the title.

will to a large extent determine
whether Michigan or Minnesota, the
favorities, shall emerge victorious.
Other outsiders who may be count-
ed on to figure prominently are Kratz
of Wisconsin, and Carter, Iowa, in the
breaststroke; Dithmer, Purdue, Herch-
berger, Wisconsin, and Noyes of Chi-
cago, in the free style dash events;
Chicago, Northwestern, Iowa, and Wis-
consin in the 200 yard free style re-
lay, and Lambert, Iowa, in the 440,
yard free style race.
On the basis of dual scores Mich-
igan has a slight advantage. Mini
nesota defeated Northwestern, 48-21,
while Michigan was victorious over
the Evanston school, 49-20. Michigan
handed Wisconsin a 49-20 licking,
while the best Minnesota could do
was to better the Badgers 46-23.
In individual stars, however, Min-
nesota outclasses Michigan by a wide
margin, S. Hill holding the season's 40
yard record, Moody holding the 100
yard mark, J. Hill leading the back
strokers, while Purdy ranks higher
than either Shorr or Whittingham on
time performances in the breast-
stroke. Michigan's only man to hold
a season record is Samson, who leads
all the other 440 men in the Confer-
ence by a safe margin.
Many doubledheaders will be found
on both the National and American
league schedules on account of their
decision of squeezing the same
amount of games in a much smaller
period of time.

ime .Limit Set
In Union
Pool Contest
An announcement was made yester-
day by the Michigan Union that all
semi-final matches in the pool, three
cushion, and straight rail tourna-
ments must be played off not later
than 11 o'clock tomorrow evening, so
that the finals can be disposed of
Saturday afternoon and evening. The
exact time of these games has not yet
been determined, but will be posted in
the billiard room and announced as
soon as it is learned.
Three of the four semi-finalists in
the pool tourney already have estab-
lished their right to play. Fifield,
Metler, and Freeman are the men that
have survived the eliminations. The
fourth man is either Herold or
Moody, depending upon the outcome
of their match.
Stark, by his victory over Faist, has
advanced to the finals, and will face
either Bumpus or Briggs.
The bowling singles semi-finals is
composed of Resman, Mesner, Ford -
ham and Paeplow, and the finals will
be rolled sometime today. Due to the
fact that there was a mistake in the
drawings of the doubles tournament,
the lines have been coming in slower
than was expected, but the correct
teams are posted on the board in the
alley room, and the various teams
should get in touch with each other,
as quickly as possible.


Announce Winners
Of Fouls Tourney
Ervin Muscovich, '29M, and Melvin
011, '27, were declared co-holders of
the all-campus foul-throwing contest
which closed last night. Each of these
men scored 78 out of a possible 100
throws. R. Johlnson, '27, captured
second place with a total score of 75
successful tries.
The tournament was so closely con-j
tested that it was impossible to de-
cide the winner until the close of the
final round.
The world's record in the one mile
walk is 6 min. 25 4-5 sec. It is held
by G. H. Goulding of Canada.

High scoring honors in the Western
Conference this year belong to George
Spradling, captain of Purdue's cham-
ship quintet, who stands out as one of
the greatest forwards the Big Ten
has produced.
Spradling has been a prominent
figure in Middle Western basket cir-
cles for the past three years. Dur-
ing this time, he has chalked up for,
Purdue a total of 440 points in 43
games for an average of more than
10 points in each contest.
In his first year in the Big Ten
Spradling led the Conference scorers
with a total of 138 points. Last year,
he was unable to play in three of his
team's games and relinquished high
scoring honors to Johnny Miner, Ohio
State star. Spradling has never been
held scoreless, although he has play-
ed in 43 games.
Cunnngham, Ohio's brilliant center,
was held to a single point Monday
night by the close Iguarding of the l
Hawkeyes and lost his chance for the l
top position. Behr of Wisconsin, and
Beckner and Krueger of Indiana may
possibly pass Spradling as they each
have one game left to play, but this
is quite unlikely.
Michigan's spectacular drive which
ended in a championship for the Wol-
verines, also bore fruit from the view-
point of high scorers. Frank Harri-
gan, by boosting his total 14 points

Monday night, raised himself to ninth'
place in Conference scoring with 78
points. Captain-elect Eddie . Cham-
bers also landed a high position fin-
ishing three places behind his team-
mate with a total of 68 points.
The following scores of the leaders
include the games of Monday night:
Spradling, Purdue ..............107
Cunningham, 'Ohio..... . ......96
3ehr, Wisconsin............... 93
Beckner, Indiana...............93
Fisher, Northwestern...........89
Krueger, Indiana..........88
White, Northwestern....,........ 85
Rasey, Minnesota ......,......... 80
Harrigan, Michigan.............78
Sibley, Indiana ...........74
Newman, Purdue ................ 72,
Chambers, MichIgani.... ........68 ,
Cramer, Purdue..................68
Zimmerman, Chicago............ 65
Daugherty, Illinois............. 61
Manager Fletcher, of the Phillies,
training at Bradenton, has received
word that Fred Leach, who was -be-
lieved to have been a hold-out, will
arrive at the camp late this week.
Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell
and Pennsylvania have been invited to
send crews to Germany to partici-
pate in the races of the Federation
of Rowing clubs.
