and Wisconsin-will compete here
Saturday, Feb. 18, in the Fifth Annual
Quadrangular Track and Field meet.
Wisconsin, winner of " the first three
meets and Ohio, last year's victors,
are expected to be hard pushed by
Northwestern and Chicago in the
All four teams will enter a number
of star performers who will go far
towards splitting up the points. Capt.
Dick Williams of Chicago, Conference
indoor half mile champion, will lead
the Maroon team in its quest for
Chicago Expects Shot Put
Chicago is also expected to pick up
a number of points in the shot put
with such performers as Buck Weaver
and Vin Libby, both capable of toss-
ing the iron ball around 43 feet.
Northwestern's loss of Lewis and
Karstens who heaved the weight
around 46 feet will materially weaken
the Purple in this event.
Some lively competition should re-
sult in the 40-yard dash when Her-
mansen and Wilkens of Northwestern,
Courtney Gleason of Chicago, Tooley
of Ohio and Smith of Wisconsin match
strides. This quintet of sprinters
should negotiate the short distance in
near record time. Smith is captain
of the Badger squad and is one of the
best sprinters in the middle west this
Relays Draw Stars
Instead of running the quarter and
half mile races the coaches has sub-
stituted the mile and two mile re-
lays. -These events should provide
some interesting competition with a
number of outstanding performers
running for each school. Paul Tooley,
Ohio State captain; Paul Gorby and
Sam Bloomberg of Northwestern;
Dick Williams of Chicago and John
Kanalz, Gil Smith and Harwood
Stowe of Wisconsin will carry the
brunt of the relay races for their re-
spective alma maters.
Each school will make a strong bid
for points in the hurdles, Wisconsin
with Ralph Pahlmeyer; Ohio with
Richard Rockaway and Francis Pierce
and Chicago with Laurel Smith and
Harold Haydon will make the strong-
est bid for places in the hurdles.
Bill Droegemueller of Northwestern
appears to have the edge in the pole
vault. However, Wisconsin has some
newcomers in this event who may
surprise the fans.

With an impressive record in pre-
season meets, Michigan's swimming
team, 1927 Conference champions,
will open its Big Ten season against
Indiana this afternoon. Coach Matt
Mann has taken 12 men to Blooming-
ton to compete against the Hoosiers.
The Crin!son swimmers have not
shown any great strength so far this
year. Although they defeated Wabash
52-17, and DePauw 53-16, these over-
whelming scores have little signifi-
cance. In her first Big Ten meet In-
diana lost to Chicago, one of the
weaker teams in the Conference this
year, by a 36-33 score.
Michigan's record breaking relay
team of Walker, Walaitis, Reif, and
Watson will meet a Hoosier quartet
consisting of Vetter, Matthew, Bol-
yard and Winston in the 235 yard
relay. In tho 50 yard, free style, Capt.
Darnall and Reif of the Wolverines
will oppose Matthew and Vetter of

in the season's inaugural against the
then highly favored Hawks, is not
entirely without chances for upset-

Hotchkiss and Andrews. However,

Iowa, the otherntrampled five
