ion that marked each race. With
he exception of the 440 yard swim,
n which Garnet Ault scored Mich-
gan's only victory by finishing
nearly a lap ahead of Sanford, of
Yale, each event was extremely close.
By virtue of winning five of the
six individual events, Yale was lead-
ng, 31-23, just prior to the final
race, the 200 yard relay. This meant
that the relay would decide the meet,

ier, and if the final score is tied,
victory goes to the team winning the
relay. A Michigan victory in the
relay would have given the meet to l
the Wolverines.
,The relay was closely contested
every inch of ithe way. Walaitis, the
third Michigan swin-er, came in a
yard ahead of Ilowland. Darnall and
Iloise, the trival captains, battled
the final two lengths, each striving
to bring his team victory. The fin-
ish was so close that it took several
minutes for the .judges to decide the
winner. Several members of the Yale
team and many of the spectators
thought that Michigan had won.
When the final score was announced,
however, the decision went to Yale,
39-23, giving Coach Kiphuth's feam
the meet and the mythical national
championship,.as the Wolverines pre-
viously won the Big Ten and Na-
tional Collegiate titles.
Yale's string of 30 consecutive dual
meet victories w a s kept intact-
through the victory. The defeat of
the Wolvelrines was also the first
sustained by the Michigan tank team
in a collegiate dual meet since Coach
Matt Mann came to Ann Arbor in

versity. The Wisconsin team found it
possible to work out of doors for one
short practice session before their de-
parture. However, Coach Lowman
was pessimistic regarding his chances
for winning many ball games on the
Dixie trip.
A serious blow was dealt the Badg-
er nine yesterday when it was learned
that Captain EarlI Burbidge, veteran
right fielder, and "Lefty" Clausen, sitar
of the hurling staff, had both been
ruled ineligible for further competi-
tion. Both Burbidge and Clausen
were dropped from the squad for vio-
lating the summer baseball rule.
These two men were probably the
best ball players on the Cardinal squad
and it will be difficult to replace them.
Clausen had been counted upon to
pitch at least half of the conference
games this year. Without lum Low-
man must depend for the most part
'upon "Jake" Jacobsen, rangy right
(hander, Ted Thelander, a speed ball
pitcher, and Ray Ellerman, veteran
from last season.
Bill Momsen and Frank Haggerty,
two recruits, have yet to be tested
under fire. Both have looked rather
impressive during the indoor training
period. Without Burbidge the outfield
is certain to include Art Mansfield,
who played in the left garden last
spring, and "Bo" Cuisiner and Maury
Winer, two newcomers.
Massey was sent; back to lis old po-
sition, second base, during yesterday's
practice. ; Lowman has deekded to
break in a _new third sacker to team
with Massey, Decker at short and
Murphy at first, all three of whom
were in the infield a year ago. Both
Knechtges and Matthusen have
worked at the hot corner this week
and each wil have a chance to show
during the southern trip.

Yesterday; Backfield Men
And Ends Workout
After a light workout yesterday,
Coach Wieman's spring football squad
will close their pre-vacation practice
this afternoon at Ferry field with their
second scrimmage of the week.
All phases of the kicking game were
thoroughly gone through yesterday.
The punters were given 'a strenuous
drill, with the backs receiving the
kicks and blocking off the ends who
were coming down and covering the

outs so far have been of a specialized

larger squad, and have consisted
largely of training for the ends and
backfield men.
Special effort has been given to
developing quarterback material for
next fall, and much promising ma-
terial has been uncovered from the re-
serve, Varsity, and freshman squads
of last year. Passers and pass re-
ceivers have also been put through an
1 extenkive drill.
A new system of offense is being ex-
* perimented with, which, it Is, hoped,
will give more power to Michigan's
straight offensive, which has been-
neglected for development of her
aerial attack in recent years. Most
of the best passer's and catchers have
been lodt to the team by graduation,
and it is with the view -of developing
r an offense based more on a running
attack that Coach Wieman is trying
out new formations and plays. It is
expected that the new system will
prove more deceptive than Michigan's-
former starting formations.
