REGULAR BERTH

Three Michigan track men are men-
tioned on the honor roll for 1926 com-
piled by the National Collegiate Ath-
'!etic association. Northrop, Fein-
singer, and Hawkins are the Wolver-
ine stars honored in this manner.
After a careful survey of the leading
collegiate athletes in which track and
field coaches from all sections of the
country were consulted, five men were
chosen as the best performers in each
event.
Northrop was named in the javelin
throw, but; the authorities failed to
recognize his ability in the running
broad jump. Wallace of Illinois; who
was mentioned as one of the lead-
ing broad jumpers, was defeated by
the versatile Michigan captain during
the Conference season. Feinsinger
was included among the best quart-
er milers in the country. In the
weight events Harry Hawkins is nam-
ed as one of the five leading hammer
throwers in collegiate circles.
No mention is made of Buck Hest-
er, star sprinter, and Dick Doyle, dis-
cus thrower, by the athletic author-
ities. Both of these men were con-
videred the best in their events in
the Big Ten. Hester was one of the
outstanding dash men in the country.
He defeated Frank Hussey, Boston
flash, at the Penn relays, and led
Locke of Nebraska, the best collegiate
sprinter in the country, for 90 yards
at national championships, losing out
by a narrow margin in the last ten
yards. Doyle was the class of the
discus throwers in the Western Con-
ference, heaving the oval more than
140 feet.
Two athletes from other Michigan
schools are included on the collegiate
honor roll. Alderman, star Michigan
State sprinter, is named in both the
100 and 200 yard dashes.
Only one athlete, Roland Lock5e of
Nebraska, is named among the best
performers in three events, being
placed in the 100 and 220 yard dash-
es, and in the 220 yard low hurdles.
Several athletes are mentioned in two
events, including Russell, Cornell
sprinter; Sharkey, dash man of Mi-
ami; Alderman, Gillettee, Montana
distance runner; Guthrie, Ohio State
hurdler; Houser, Southern California
weight man; Anson, high and broad
jumper of Ohio State; Kuck, shot put-
ter and javelfn thrower from Kansas
State Teachers college.

MAT FINALS TO FEATURE
MAY'S GYMNASTIC SHOW'
Doctor George A. May's athletic
show, which will take place on Wed-
nesday afternoon, April 6, will have
as its feature the final bouts of the
all-campus wrestling show.
T'he most promising candidates en-
tered for the all-campus tournament'
are freshmen, according to Doctor
May, and if they win their way to the
finals in their respective weights,
they will make the show practicallyI
all-freshman. The other events areI
the finals of the Freshman fencing
tournament and contests in which the
five best men in the gym classes, who
will be selected by tests starting to-
day, will compete. The events will bo
the 50 yard dash, the 20 feet rope
climb, the standing broad jump, the
12 pound shot put, and the running
high jump. The winners of the events
will be awarded medals.

are fourteen boys in the high hchool
at Minersville and nine of them came
here to play. They brought along one
coach, one principal, one superinten-
dent and seven citizens.
All but seven of the forty-three
teams entered were state champions,
and the others were runners-up. A
long list of other schools had to be re-
fused invitations, and some state win-
ners were turned down to keep the
tournament strictly within public
high school ranks.
The draw gave Ridgefield, N. J.
a first round bye, because of the odd
number of entries, and the winning
team will have to score five straight
victories to carry off the champion-
ship.
First round matches were played
hourly all day Tuesday and will be
played up to 8 o'clock tonight, when
the second round begins. Semi-finals
will be reached Saturday afternoon,
and the finals Saturday night. Five
of the teams have been in previou ,
tournaments, but list year's winner,
Fitchburg, Mass., was beaten in its
state tournament this year.
PHILADELPHIA.- The University
of Pennsylvania will open its la-
crosse season here next Saturday
against Lafayette.

Rennie Friedman
One of Coach Fisher's many can-
didates who aspire to play third base
is Behnie Friedman, Michigan's grid-
iron hero. Friedman alternated with
Jablonowski at the hot corner last
season, playing regularly while "Jab-]
by" was on mound duty and taking
turns with the pitcher at other times.
With Weintraub and Corriden com-
peting for the regular third base job
this season, however, the situation
takes on a different aspect and prom-'
ises to give Friedman all the competi-
tion he can stand, perhaps more.
Coach Fisher has not yet given indica-
tion who will take over the third
base ditties, as much depends on the
hitting ability the men display.
