ICHIGAN WILL FACE Interscholastic









Track And Field Meet To Start Today


Game Should Be Most fmonit Tilt
Of Yar; lowa Victory Would

ILL 1 M'A E= MAY P h
Coach Ray Fishers undefeated Wol-
verines will meet a revengeful Iowa
nine, spurred on by what they belev-
ed to be an unjust defeat suffered at
the bands of Michigan earlier in the
season, today, at Iowa. City in what
is generally conside-red the most fim-,
portant game of the year for both
It will be a watchful and determ-
fled Michigan team that invades the
Hawkeye's lair. Watchful, 'est the
Hawks repeat last season's perform-
ance when they dashed the title hopes
of a Maize and Blue nine who, like
this year's team, had just won five
straight conference victories, by a
score of 4-3. Determined to erase all
doubt as to the respective merits of
the two teams.
McAfee May Pitch
A victory in today's encounter
would place the Wolverines two full
games ahead of their nearest rivals
while a setback at the hands of the
Hawks woud leave the Michigan nine
in a tie with Otto Vogel's squad and
faced with the task of beating the I-
lini in a doubleheader tomorrow in
order to stay in front.
It is quite likely that Bill McAfee,
who has had but one run scoredl a-
gainst him in his three Big Ten
games to date and that one a fluke
homer by Winer of Wisconsin, will be
in the box for the Wolverines. Either
Mulroney or Twogood should be the
Hawks' moundsman, Mulroney started
the last game against Michigan and
was in the lead by 6 to 5 score when
he retired in the ninth inning for a
pinch hitter. Twogood, on the other
hand, pitched a three-hit game.a-
gainst Indiana in his last appearance
onf the pitching rubber.
Io~a Setting' Fast, Pace
Both teams seem to be going at top
speed, The Wolverines having breezed
through five straight conference
games, with Iowa being the only team
to show stubborn opposition, are bat-
ting over the .300 mark; fielding quite
well, and receiving very capable hurl-
ing. Iowa, after its ten inning defeat
in Ann Arbor, has won four straight l
Conference games, bowling over Wis-
consin, Northwestern, Indiana, and
Minnesota. The Haks as ateam are
hitting at a .27clip; with four of the
regulars, Thompson, Terry, Sahs, and
Glassgow batting over .400 and be-
sides this both of the regular pitchers
are hurling good ball.

"I have played golf since I was a-
bout 12 years old," said Sweetser,
"but never gave m.nuch attention to
the game until I came east to live.
In Kentuckv, where I was born, I
layed baseball and at t.1.Lus, my

some running on the side. I though
I was quite a sprinter, but pulled a
tendon at Yale and could not run
any more. The baseball season was
too far gone to try to do any serious
playing there, so I then specialized
on golf and have majored in that
an golf and have majored in that
sport ever since."
The specialization in golf bore
almost immediate results for in 1920,
Sweetser won the intercollegiate
championship' for Yale. He had fail-
fed to qualify .in the national anmteur,
in Ruu but the nomentum of his col-
lege triumph, the next year, carried
himr into the amateur event and to
the third round where he was de-
feated by Fred Wright. In 1921, he a-
gain moved on to the third round in
the amateur where he ran into Chic/,
Evans and thereafter joined the gal-
lery for the rest of the championship.
Jess is one month younger than
lPobby Jones but he beat the great
Atlanta golfer to a national title by
winning the amateur in 1922.
Slightly unfavorable weather con-
ditions hampered the Michigan yearl-
ing track squad in the telegraphic
meet with the freshmen of Minnesota
yesterday afternoon, although on Wed-
nesday, the first day of the meet, ideal
running conditions prevailed and some
creditable tim'es were made in the
middle distances.
Fortunately most of the track ev-
ents were run off on Wednesday. The
hundred, 440 yards. ,the mile run, hur-
dles, and part of the discus and jave-
lin comprised the events on the pro-
gram the first day of the meet. Yes-
terday the remaining runs and the
rest of the field events were finished
under a drizzle of rain which at times
threatened to stop the meet.
While the results of the meet will
not be known until Saturday, the
times made in the run gave Coach
Hoyt occasion to feel that the yearl-
ings will compare quite favorably
with the Minnesota squad. Nothing is
known of the strength of the Minnes-
ota freshmen and their performance
in this meet will not be received here
until sometime Saturday.

Thirty-Two State High Schools Will
Compete In The 28th Annual
Outdoor Clash
Over 350 athletes from 32 schools
will swing into action at 2:00 o'clock
this afternoon at Ferry Field in the
preliminaries of the annual inter-
scholastic track meet sponsored by
the University. The finals of the meet
will be run off at 10:00 tomorrow so
as not to interfere with the Michigan-
Minnesota meet in the afternoon.
Detroit Northwestern, leader in
Michigan prep track circles for the
last three years, is favored to annex
its fourth consecutive championship
over the exceptionally. strong field
entered. The present titleholders have
a well balanced team, lacking strength
only in the weight events. Northeam
ern, Cass Tech, and Kalamazoo, who
followed Northwestern in the meet
last year, are expected to furnish the
close competition.
Battle lne In High*Inmp
In last year's meet only one record
was equalled and none broken, but
the strong entries in several events
prophesy the setting of new stand-
ards in at least two events. The half
mile run is expected to be one of the
closest events, when Arnold of West-
ern and Thompson of Northwestern
will attempt to settle a long standing
c. teipath rivalry.
Another battle royal' is certain to
ensue inrthe high jump, where Rel-
kin of Port Huron will attempt to re-
tain his indoor title over Simpson of
Cass Tech and Dennis. of Northwest-
ern. All of these entrants have beenv
doing over six feet consistently, ard
a new record is ,looked for when they
clash in the finals tomorrow morn-
Tershoff Is FavorIte
Although NorthWestern has three
strong entrants in the hurdles, Cap-
tain Erskine, Seros, and Dennis, Beat-
ty of Northeastern who starred last
year's meet and in indoor competi-
tion, is favored to retain his laurels.
Tershoff of Cass Tech is expected
to continue his success in the weight
events, while Northwestern will de-
pend largely on Carlson and Hurd
for first and second -in the half mile.
Northrop and Smith of Northwestern
appear the class ofi the pole vaulters.

While a Wolverine victory in the
first and only home meet of the out-
door track sason tomorrow after-
noon at Ferry Field seems unquest-
ioned, the individual stars of the
Minnesota team can be counted on
to make things interesting for the
Maize and Blue athletes who are en-
tered in their specialities.
The fact that Coach Sherman
'R8inger has entered three men ini
every event, but named only 23
men to represent the Gopher
school indicates that the North.
erners rely upon their star per.
formers rather than on team bal.
ance for points.
Unlike their experience of last
week end, certain of the Michigan ath-
letes seem destined to run into the
hardest kind of competition when the
Minnesota squad invades Ferry field.
Another slam in the quarter
mile, for .instance, is out of the
question with Catlin, conqueror1
of George Baird, Iowa Ace, sched-

uled to compete for the invaders.
A point equally certain is that
Michigan's erratic trio of pole vault-
ers, Prout, Eardley and Erickson,
must be at their best if they hope to
finish in the money with Otternes 7,
Hess and Crowley of Minnesota en-
-Every one.. of these Gophers-
have been crowding the 13 feet
mark consistently, while Otter
Hess set a Onto Meay record a
short time ago with aleap of 13
geet 1 inch.
Michigan's chances for scoring
heavily in the high jump depend
largely upon the condition of Chuck
Waldo who injured his ankle in p.rec-
tice Wednesday.
It was reported late yesterday
afternoon that his condition was
still uncertain, but that it is pos-
sible that lie may be able to par.
