Capt. Norhrop Wins Broad Jump)
Event And Ties For First Place In
Pole YOURt
"Michigan's showing at the Illinois
relays was as good as could be ex-
pected in view of the early competi-
tion and lack of seasoning," said
Stephen J. Farrell, Varsity track
coach, yesterday, "but the indoor Con-
ference meet scheduled for March 11,
and 12 will see a great improvement1
in the team."
Most of the teams entered in the
Relays had already had several dual
- meets. The Wolverine team showed
the lack of practice under stiff compe-
tition, the coach believes, but the men
showed much ability and are expect-
ed to be ready for the regular Big Ten
"Buck" Hester, star dashman who
won in the Conference 100 yard out-
door dash last season, and who showed
fine form in all the early season dash
'aces, did not hit his stride in the
Illinois meet, but should be ready for
his fastest race within the next two
weeks. Hester has often turned in
better time than that registered by
the winner of the 75 yard dash.
Wlverines Rave "Bad Break"
The two mile relay team suffered
a "bad break" in the regular meet.
Pfluke, the leadoff man, was in the
lead as he finihed his 880 yard run,
but due to an error by the officials
every man was forced to run an extra
lap, which is almost one-sixth of a
mile. Pfiuke had worn himself out in.
the sprint, and could hardly finish,
f-alling 75 yards behind before handing
the baton to Hunt. The Kansas relay
team suffered a like setback, the lead-
off man finishing almost in a walk.
The Illinois four-man relay team
turned in an exceptional race, turn-
ing in the fast time of 18 minutes13
6-10 seconds, to break the old carnival
record, held by Michigan, by 2 and .
4-10 seconds. Fairfield, who started
for the Illini,' did not turn in a fast
race, but Sittig, McElwee, and Rue,
running in that order, set a terrific
pace, and won easily. The Michigan
team showed well, with Hornberger
running a steady race to climb fromi,
fifth to third position, after trailing
far behind the leaders.
Cooper, Wolverine hurdler, showed'
well in both the low and high bar-
riers, losing first place in the lows to
Spence, Detroit City college, by a scant
margin, and placing fourth in the
highs behind Allison, Iowa, Royer and
McKaever, Illinois.
Northrop Is Outstanding
Capt. Northrop was one of the out-
sta iding figures of the meet. The
Michigan leader tied for first place in
the pole vault, clearinglthe bar at
12 feet 6 inches, and then leaped 23
feet 5 inches to take first honors in
the broad jump, 5 inches ahead of
Simon, Illinois, who finished second.
The Illinois team was the most out-
standing in all-round showings. The
medley relay team garnered second
place; Wachowski tied for second in
the high jump; Royer and McKaever
finished second and third respectively
in the high hurdles; Simon took sec-
ond honors in the broad jump; White
was tied for first place in the pole
vault; and the four mile relay team
set a new mark in finishing first.
Ohio State was the only Conference
team to place a man in the 75 yard
dpsh. Kress ran a fine race, and plac-
ee fourth, losing only by inches to the
first three men. On a basis of this
performance, a fast race is expected in
the Conference meet when he faces
Hester for the Big Ten dash title.
Several other schools, however, may
enter men in this event who will take
the measure of both Hester and
Kreuss, if neither of them make bet-
ter time than :07.7, the time made
by Grim, Michigan State, who won.
in the event at Illinois.
Lewis Second In Sotput
Lewis, Northwestern, pulled a sur-

prise by placing second in the shot
put. Lyon, Illinois entry who was
favored to win the event, displayed
his usual erratic form and failed to
place. Bagge, Northwestern's main-
stay, also failed to make the necessary
distance to score. The event was won
by Rinefort, Grinnell, who heaved the
weight 47 feet 1 inch. Lovette, the
best Michigan shot putter, was not
entered because of lack of practice,
but he is capable of close to 45 feet,,
and may be among the leaders in the
coming meet.
Spence, Detroit City college star,
who has been touted as "one of the
leading hurdlers in the country," nosed
out Cooper, Michigan, in the 75 yard
low hurdles, in one of the closet races
of the day.
Burg, captain of the Chicago team,
again proved himself the leading high
jumner by leaping 6 feet 5 1-2 inches,

The record of the Michigan team to
date is not impressive when consider-
ing the number of games won and
lost in Conference competition. How-
ever, the fact that Coach Barss' men
went down to defeat twice to Minne-
sota, while they trimmed the Wiscin-
sin team does not indicate the quality
of hockey that is being played. When
Coach Iverson of Minnesota saw the
Michigan men hold his undefeated
team to two narrow victories of 1 to
0 and 3 to 2, he said: "That is the
best hockey team Michigan ever had."
Immediately after retrning from
the long trip to Minneapolis and ailadi-
son Coach Barss set his men at hard
