What Varsity Tracknmen Did At The Conference

Meet

C ------------ ------------- --- _

(Continued From Page 6)
The Wolves -qualified five men in
the preliminaries -and registered
points in four of the ten events to
nose out Ohio State and flnish
ahead of live vother Conference
teams. With the improvement that
is ybound to come with competition
the Maize and Blue team will un-
doubtedly be a formidable oppo-
nent in dual meets and the out-
door championships in May.
In practically every event in
the Michigan entries failed to
place, it was simply a case of
lack of competition; the Wolves
always finished just out of the
money and this is something
that will probably be largely
overcome as soon as they get a
few more meets under their
belt.
At least a half dozen of the ,pres-
ent Michigan squad are untried
sophomore performers and in view
of the fact that the Indoor Con-
ference meet was their first taste
of Big Ten competition, as a group
they acquitted themselves remark-
ably well.
Eddie Tolan, sophomore sprint
flash, proved that he must be
considered one of the out-
standing dash men in the Big
Ten by forcing George Simp-
son, Ohio's title holder, to
break his own record in the 60.
Tolan pushed the Buckeye all

the way and finished ,a scant
two feet behind him in !the fi-
nals after tieing his natk in
both the preliminaries and the
semiinals.
Another Wolverine, Eddie Grods
-ky, survived the preliminary heat
in the sprint, finishing second to
Root of Chicago, but was eliminat-
ed in the semifinals when Simpson
and Root placed one two. Cliff;
Murray, the third Michigan sprint-
er, encountered hard :luck :at the;
outset when he drew Simpson of
Ohio and East ,of .Chicago, in his'
initial heat, but ran well to finish:
third just behind the : aroon flash.
OneHof the upsets 4f the meet
occurred in the dash prelimin-
-aries when Larson, Wisconsin
veteran, was nosed out byf
Timm of Illinois. The officials
ruled that Larson was entitled
"to :a place after :seeing pictures
of the event Saturday, but both
Tolan and'Timm finished ahead
of him in the semifinals.
Jack Tarbill was the only Wol-
verine quarter miler to qualify for
the finals, finishing a close second
to Henke ;of Wisconsin iA the fast-
est heat of the preliminaries, :51.4.
Half an hour later he came back
to run a brilliant race and defeat
Stevenson, Iowa veteran, and Dav-
idson of Wisconsin in :52.3.
Tarbill did not compete in

the finals, 'however, as he drew
the outside -position -and was
serattchle to save his energy for
the last event on the program,
the mile relay.
Michigan qualified a man in the
70 yard high hurdles -when Potter,
a sophomore, finished second to
Burkhart of Illinois in the fast
time -of :0$.8. Although eliminated
in the semifinals, the Wolverine
took fourth place in the consola-
tion event.
White of Illinois, and Moul-
ton of Iowa, proved too much
for Al Lomont, Michigan vet-
eran, in the half mile and he
fiished,,third in the prelimin-
ary heat, but came back strong
to take first in the consolation
880 in 2:00 ahead of Bunning
of Illinois, Williams of Chicago
and Heintz of Ohio. Benson,
the other Iichigan half miler,
was also eliminated in the pre-
liminary heat.
The second veteran to fall by the
wayside in this event was Dick Wil-
liams, Chicago's outdoor 880 cham-
pion; Williams was stricken with a,

cramp near the end of the race
and was unable to finish.
After leading the field for five
laps, Austin, Wolverine sopho-
more tmiler, was outdistanced
by Letts of Chicago, Stine of Il
liiois, Seidon of Illinois and
Leas of Indiana. He came back
to run well in the consolation
event Saturday, however, filn-
ishing second to Me of W is-
conn)in 4:26.1.
Perhaps the biggest disappoibt-
ment of the meet as far as the
Wolverines were concerned was the
showing of the two milers. Wuer-
ful and Monroe, neither of whom
finished in the money. Monroe had
to drop out at the half way mark
on account of cramps, while Wuer-
ful was forced to content himself
with sixth.
Michigan picked up points in
two of the three field events on
the program, the shot put and
the high jump.
Bud Poorman -displayed markedl

fourth place with a put of 42 feet numbered among the ranks -of the
6/, inches to finish just behind trackmen by allowing Eddie Grod-
Weaver, Chicago giant. Among sky to draw the first place medal
those defeated by the Wolverine for him.

were Roberts of Iowa and Klein of{
Chicago.
The lone Wolverine entry in
the high jump, Felker, tied for
first with five others at 5 feet
9 7-8 inches. After the conipe-
tition had been completed, Fel-
ker satisfied himself that he
could have taken first by dlear-
ing the bar at 6 feeat.
He established himself as one of
the more fortunate individuals

Competition in the pole vault
proved much too keen for Er-
ickson, the single Michigan en-
try in the event aid he failed
to clear the bar at 12 feet.
Michigan placed third in the re-
lay largely due to the sensational
performance of Dale Seymour who
took the baton in last place out-
sprinted the field to hand it to his
brother, Dalton, at least five yards
ahead of the others.
