Ten indoor track championships at
7:30 o'clock tonight in the new IowaI
field house, when the preliminary
heats of the 60 yard, dash, the 70 yard
high hurdles,-and the 880 yard run, as
well as the trial and semifinal heats
in the 440 yard dash will be run.
This year's entry includes the
names of more than 275 athletes.

team entries with 38, Wisconsin trails

the 1927 meet. The Indians have al-

time, and lead the Conference in this
respect. Michigan has been declared
winner on four occasions.
Iowa and Ohio State may press the
Illini for first honors. There is ap-
parently little to choose between the
other teams, all of which boast one
or more individual stars but lack the
team strength of the Illinois and Iowa,
Due to the fact that this year's

of tonight's preliminaries. The semi-
finals will be run tomorrow night.

Twenty opponents, twelve of which
are Conference members, will fur-

Varsity candidates for next year.
Breast strokers are plentiful among
the yearlings, but there is a dearth
of good free stylers, and only one
back stroker is available.
Auer and Russell are the outstand-

freshmen. Auer has shown speed in
the 50 yard sprint, while Russell is
a good prospect in the 100 yard free
style. Shikes is also a- free style

MICHIGAN HAS EDGE IN 175 POUND BOUT;
ILLINOIS HEAVYWEIGHT HOLDS ADVANTAGE
TO COMPETE IN EACH
INDOOR TRACK EVENT
(Speci dlto The Daily.)
IOWA CITY, March 8.-Every event
of the Western Conference indoor
track championships will be enhanced
by the presence of a team captainI
among the competitors, according to a
compilation made here at the Univer-
sity of Iowa, scene of the meet.
So diversified are the talents of the
ten captains, that only in the half
mile and mile relay will two leaders
clash. Here Dick Williams, Chicago's
conference indoor titlist, will race
against Paul Tooley, the Ohio State
man who was second in the outdoor
880 yard run lastfspring.
George Hester, from Michigan, will
be the captains' representative in the
60-yard dash. He is the rniner who
captured the 50-yard championship
two years ago, shared the 100-yard
title in 1926, and won it outright lastE
In the hurdles the leader is Frank
(Bab) Cuhel, the great Iowan who has
twice won the Big Ten outdoor low
hurdles championship. Illinois' team
is led by Dave Fairfield, a two miler
who is one of the favoritesto win,
while John Petaja, miler, will direct
the forces of Wisconsin in defense of
the 1927 team title.
The quarter mile captain is William
Stephenson, Indiana, who won second
place in the outdoor event of 1927.
William Droegemuller of Northwest-
ern is a pole vaulter, holder of the
Big Ten outdoor record, and national
Arthur Laemmle heads the Minne-
sota squad as the star Gopher shot
putter, and C. R. Nelson, high jump-
er,. is captain of Purdue's team.
Two captains will meet in the mile
relay when Cuhet of Iowa, and Step-
henson of Indiana, both anchor men,
take the baton. Cuhel's 1927 team
was conference indoor champion;
Stephenson's quartet raced off with
first place in the outdoor meet.

The one serious weakness of Coach
Paul Prehn's Illinois wrestling teamn
appears to lie in the light heavy-
weight division, where the Illini
wrestlers have had but mediocre suc-
cess to date.
Just who will be Bob War-
ren's opponent in the 175 pound
bout is as yet undecided, but
either Crane or M"egge will take
the Illinois assignment.
At egge's record is slightly bet-
ter than that of Crane, but the
former has wrestled in only two
bouts, one of which he defaulted
due to injuries which have kept
hiim out oi the rest of the meets.
He has the advantage of two years
of experience over his sophomore
competitor, who is better known as
Grantland Rice's choice for all-Amer-
ican guard this fall. Since Muegge
gained a fall in his first bout, it is
probable that he will wrestle for the
Illini if in shape. ,
Either of these men will hold
one advantage over Warren, that

the year by annexing the all-
campus championship in the 145

nated to the light heavyweight
