Final Score Is 56t To 42%; Wolfe
Accmunts For Two Of New






Breaking three freshmen field
house records and equalling an-
other, the yearling track squad
triumphed over Minnesota's first
year thin clads last Saturday in a
telegraphic meet, 56 1-2 to 42 1-2.
Wolfe, yearling distance runner,
led the assault against the old
marks, cracking. both the mile and
two mile marks.
The other two records to fall
were in the pole vault where Allen
vaulted 12 feet 3 inches to sur-
pass Prout's mark of 11 feet 9
inches made in 1924. Campbell!
also equalled the 60-yard dash
time of :06.5 made last year by
Tolan and Cooke.
Gophers Take Hurdles
Superiority in the distance runs
enabled the Wolverine yearlings to
down the Gopher freshmen in the
first meet of the year. Coach
Hoyt's team captured six firs
places to pile up their point total
and shared another when a triple
tie was created in the 60-yard
sprint. Slams were chalked up in
the high jump and the half mile.
The Minnesota squad was strong
in the hurdle events, turning in
a slam in both the high and low
races as well as making another in
the broad jump. The Gophers took1
but four first places.
Campbell saved the Wolverines
from being shut out in the dash
by equally the 1928 freshmen rec-
ord of .:06.5. This time was also
marked up by two Gopher sprint-
ers, J. Hass and Thompson, the
three men thus sharing first place.
Minnesota increased its lead with
a slam in the two hurdle events,,
Larogue taking the highs with a
time of :08.8 and J. Hass captur-
ing the lows with :07.7.
Wolfe Breaks Marks
Michigan's freshmen gained back
some lost ground in the 440-yard
run by taking both first and sec-
ond, Kiminsky finishing first
with a time of :54 seconds with
Chase following him across the
line. McLaughlin led the way to a
Michigan slam in the half mile by
turning in 2:01.7 while Wolfe
cracked the old mile mark of Horn-

The finals of this tourney will be
held at the Olympia in Detroit,
February 28, to decide the winners
and runners-up who will go to

to the good showing of Heim and
,Beer it is probable that they will
be sent to Grand Rapids despite
their defeats.


At Lansing the team showed con-
siderable improvement over previ-
ous performances against Big Ten
opponents and had little trouble
in almost .doubling the score be-
fore the end of the match. The

With the season nearly over, the
race for the Big Ten wrestling
championship has resolved itself
into a three-cornered duel between
Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. At
present Michigan is leading the
eastern division with three victories
and no defeats, but Coach Keen's
squad must defeat Indiana this
Saturday to clinch the division
Illinois Team Strang
The strong Ilhni team, champ-
ions for the last two years, have
only to defeat Chicago in the west-
ern division this week in order to
enter the final match for the title.
The Indians have won all three of
their meets to date.
As a result of last week's meets,
Illinois demonstrated its superior-
ity over Iowa by defeating the
Hawkeyes, 17-9. Northwestern fur-
nished an upset, however, when the
Wildcast tied the Hoosier matmen
16-16. Overconfidence undoubtedly
had its effect upon the Indiana
team, as Northwestern was not re-
garded as a serious contender.
Hoosiers Coming Fast
The tie with Northwestern will
not hinder Indiana from an oppor-
tunity of annexing the eastern di-
visional title, as the winner of the
Indiana-Michigan match will meet
the western champion, probably
Illinois, for the Big Ten title. The
Hoosiers have a strong outfit,.hav-
ing defeated Nebraska 15-11, _Ohio
State, 22-28, and Purdue, , 17-11.
Iowa State downed the crimson
in a non-Conference meet, 15-11.
North, Connor, and Brannon,
Indiana's representatives in the
115, 125, aid 135 pound divisions,
all lost to their Northwestern ad-
versaries. However the Wildcats are
considered particularly strong in
these weights. Weaver at 145 and
Ross at 155 pounds are considered
1two of the mainstays of the Crim-
Ison team. .
Scott Is 165 Pound Star
An Olympic team alternate, Scott,
wrestles for Indiana in the 165
pound class. He lost his only matey

Michigan is among the three Big
Ten schools that has been sched-
uled to meet the University of
Pennsylvania basketball team dur-
ing the season of 1929-30. Besides
meeting the Wolverines, the Quak-
ers will play both Indiana and
Ohio State, in addition to meeting
Notre Dame and Georgia Tech in
o t h e r .inter-sectional games.
Georgia Tech, present leader in the
Southern Intercollegiate associa-
tion, will close the season of the

games will be played on the road,1

of the Eastern Intercollegiate I
Basketball League when they came
from behind, in a dramatic. second
half rally, to defeat Cornell, 26 to
25, at Philadelphia Saturday night.
It was Penn's seventh straight
league win. Dartmouth is the only
team with a chance to share the
top with the Quakers, having a
record of four wins and threet
losses. In order to tie with Penn,
they will have to win their three
remainig games while the Quak-
ers are losing three in a row.
The Dartmouth quintet also
came from behind Saturday to de-
feat the up and doing Columbia1
team, 29 to 25. Yale has won four'
and lost four to date, while Cornell'
has sunk, after a good start, to aI
tie with Columbia for fourth place,,
with two wins and four losses.
Princeton is ift last place with one
victory- out of six starts.

tain to compete are Lemak, ofI
Highland Park, who smashed the
former breast stroke record with
a mark of 1:13.6 in the 100 yard
race last year, Kowicki, another
Polar Bear, who won the 220 yard
free style last! year, and Ballard ofj
Detroit Northern.1
One change will be made in the
events this year, the medley relay,
formerly a four man event, being
run off as in college meets, with
100 being done in the back stroke,
breast stroke, and free style in
turn. This will give HighlandI
Park's medley team, which tied the
national interscholastic mark of
2:32 last year, a chance to show its
worth against college times.
The other events on the program
are: 200 yard relay, 100 yard free
style, back stroke and breast stroke,
50 yard free style, and 200 yard
free style.
