JalilemnAnd Heath Selected As Second
Choice In Poll For Chicago
Alumni Prize
WINNER IS HALF BACK
In a meeting held last night at the
Union, George Rich, '29, of Lakewood,
Ohio, was awarded the silver foot-
ball, a trophy' donated by the Chicago
Alumni association to be given each
year to the candidate standing out
most prominently in the spring grid-
iron sessions. Five of the six foot-
ball coaches cast their ballots for
Rich.
Alvin Dahlem, '29, of Jackson, and
.William Heath, '26E, of Corning, New
York, were tied for second in the
coaches' poll. Marshall H. Boden, '29,
of Detroit and Maxwell Wiard, '29E, of
Ypsilanti, pressed the leaders closely
for high honors, each receiving sever-
al votes.
Factors entering into the choice of
the winner, and the percentages each
carried are as follows: attendance,
25, improvement, 25, attitude, 10, and
value as a future Varsity player, 40. I
Backfield Men Show Well
An interesting fact about the win-
ners of the first three honors is that
they all play in the backfield. Rich is
a halfback, while Dahlem plays at
the quarterback post. Heath is a
fullback, but worked out at tackle
this spring.
Rich had a perfect attendance rec-I
ord, being present at every practice.
Heath also went through without an,
absence as did Wiard. Bolden andj
Dahlem had their records marred by
one absence.
Several other candidates were pres-
ent at every session, and are as fol-
lows: George Hammond, '28, of Lans-
ing; Charles F. Leason, '29, of Mon-
roe; George Lounsberry, '26, of Du-
luth, Minn.; Herman Miethe, '29, of
Escanaba; Louis C. Nanry, '28, Ann
Arbor; and Henry Totzke, '27, of Ben-
ton Harbor.sIn addition to Bolden and
Dahlem, Austin M. Hughes, '29, of
Gary, Indiana, had only one absence
chalked up against him.
Paul Cook, '27Ed, of Muskegon,
Darold Greenwald, '29Ed, of Chicago,
and Frank Harrigan, '27, of Grand
Rapids had perfect attendance records
until they were injured. Though the
injuries were slight, the coaches ad-
vised them to withdraw from practice
for the time.

MICHIGAN BALL TEAM TO
PLAY AT LANSING TODAY
Varsity baseball players will meet
the Michigan State college nine today!
at Lansing in the second baseball
game of the season between the two
schools. The team will leave at
12:30 o'clock by bus and will returnt
immediately after the game.
The Wolverine won the first game
with State 6 to 1, and if they continue
in their present form should have
little trouble in annexing the second
victory of the season from this team.
Coach Fisher has decided to let
Ruetz pitch, and Davis catch, while
Kuhn and Fremont will form the bat-
tery for the opposition. Edgar, who
injured his hand in the game with
Iowa Monday will not make the trip
to Lansing. The rest of the team
seemed to be in good shape.{
Northwestern university athletic
teams will get plenty of action this
week, two baseball games, a track
meet, tennis, and golf being on the
schedule.!

For the eighth time in a period of
more than 25 years Michigan and
Illinois will face each other on the
track in a dual meet Saturday at
Ferry field.
Michigan's first outdoor track meet
with a Sucker team was in 1898. In
I this meet the Wolverines were }vic-
torious, leaving the Champaign team
at the short end of a 88 1-2-31 1-2
3 score. A period of -22 years elapsed
before the next meet was held in 1920,1
and at this meet the Michigan team
was outclassed, losing to the Illinois
team 90 1-2 to 44 1-2.
lllini Win Four in Row
For the next four years Michigan
suffered defeats at the hands of Gill
coached teams, the worst one coming
in 1924, when a powerful Illinois squad
decisively beat the Maize and Blue
men 106 to 29. That same year Illi-
nois won both the indoor and outdoor
Conference championships.
Last year's meet at Urbana proved
the turning point, for a well balanced
Wolverine team that had won the
Conference indoor meet traveled to
Champaign and defeated the Illini 1
69 2-3 to 65 2-3.
Indoor Meet Close
The meet Saturday should prove' to
be an even closer battle than last
year. At the Conference indoor meet
there was not two points separating
the two teams, Michigan finishing
second and Illinois fourth.
Illinois entries for the meet, re-
ceived yesterday, are as follows:
Yarnall, Hale, Greathouse, and Sulli-
van in the 100 yard dash, Greathouse,
Hale,Sullivan,dYarnall and Schoch
in the 220 yard dash. In the 440
yard dash Schoch, Sittig, Mehock,
Yates, Runkle, Rose and Courter.
Duncan, Rue, Sittig, Stollner,
White, LePlante, Rose and Courter

The sessions just ended have been
carried on since the week following
spring vacation, and have drawn an
average of nearly a hundred candi-
dates every afternoon. The entire
coaching staff has been engaged inj
teaching these men the fundamentalsI
of the game, and closed the work
Saturday with the final scrimmage
game.
Spring Practice Successful
Coach Elton E. (Tad) Wieman,
who had active charge this spring,i
made the statement that this year's
practice was the most successful,
spring session we have ever held. j
