5econd Chmnploinships
Included among the 21 Varsity track
Al4thletes who are scheduled to entrain
for Columbus this morning, there to
'onipete in the annual Ohio Relays
t6mor row, are many who have dis-
tinguished themselves in previous
holdings of the Buckeye clas'sic..
Defenders of three individual cham-
pionships and one second place win-
ner last year, besides veteran relay
quartets that placed second in. the
mile and two mile team events, are
again, expected to score heavily. Cap-
tain Hester in the dash, Cooper in
both the high and low hurdles, and
'c etz in the hammer are the Wolver-
ine stars returning from last season's
team 'Who will participate in their
specialties tomorrow.l
Fast Field In Dash
Hester holds hs title as a result
of sprinting the century dash in :09.9
to beat out Kriss of Ohio State and
Wubusca of Pittsburgh. Both of these
runners andSinpnon, Ohio's sopho-
more Big Ten indoor champion, will
provide the @impetition for the Michi-
gan captain tomorrow.
Cooper''s double triumph in the
hurdles will net go unchallenged,
though the field does not look as im-
pressive as in former years. Coach
Steve Farrell's ace has repeatedly
lowered his time made last year in
the 120 yard highs and 220 yard lows
and only recently broke :24 fiat t i
the longer distance.<
Gez Shows Well
Ketz, hammer thrower who has
been hovering about the 160 foot
mark during all of last week's prac-
tice workouts, is the last of the point
winners in last year's meet, but the
strength of the squad is not conined
to only these.
Kinney, a good high hurdler; Waldo,
a consistent high juniper; and Prout,
a brilliant though erratic pole vaulter,
are the others who should break in tor
the scoring column for the Wolver-
Others who will make the trip to
Columbus are the following: Grodsky
in the dash; Carlson in the discus;
Beaman in the javelin; Willians in
the hammer; Erickson and Eardley in
the pole vault; and Felker in the highr
jump, all these besides the memberst
of the relay quartets.
Relay Teams Strong
These latter teams wil be composed
of Jones, Seymour, Freese, and Mung-
er for the mile and Grunow, Monroe,1
Leonard,:and Lomont for the two mile.
Michigan's mile squad last year ran!
second to Syracuse's I.C. 4-A. cham-
pionship group which negotiated the
distance in 3:24. The two mile group
trailed the Ohio squad which estab-

Because of injuries to Stuch and
Chapman there will be no entry in the

not forthcoming to warrant sending

squad for the same reason.
Through an error, the names of

Ohio relays, two other Badger relay
teams will compete tomorrow at

Coach T. E. Jones has settled on the
personnel of his relay teams. The
four milers who leave here Friday. for
the Buckeye "meet are Bullamore, Pet-
aja, Thompson, and Moe. The latter
turned in a surprisingly fast mile in
the trials. Until this week he was
only given an outside chance of fill-
ing the vacancy.

came eligible to run this spring,
Ramsey, -Larsen and Benson com-
prise the sprint relay entry of the
Badgers at Kansas. They will run in
both the quarter mile and half mile

For Hagen, the glories of the 'Brit-

American golf secure by his victory

Hagen has played no tournament
golf since he won the professional
championship at Dallas last fall for
the fourth successive season. He

Gentlemen :
The worst thing in the world to try
to find is a good pipe tobacco that is
well within the reach of everybody,
and at the same time does not taste
like it had just come out of the cabbage
I have been smoking a pipe for two
years and have just this month started
to smoke a real smoke, Edgeworth. If
at first you don't succeed, try, try
again. Believe me, I tried for two years,
but finally success is more than mine.
I have just been looking around,
and have found to my delight that I
can get Edgeworth practically any-
where. I even found it out at the lake
near Dallas where I go fishing. Oh boy,
what a combination-a perfect day, a
can of good tobacco, and your pipe.
I always thought these ad letter,
were the bunk, but this time I know

No matter how one lounges about in a Langrock suit, it
still retains its smart lines. Niceties of cut, seldom observed
in pre-tailored clothing, are responsible for the distinction.
