Detroit Northwestern's brilliant;
track and field contingent stepped
off to a flying start in the quest of
the twenty ninth annual Univer-
sity of Michigan interscholastic
outdoor track meet yesterday after-
noon on Ferry field.
Although -led by Scott High schoolj
of Toledo in the matter of qualifiers '
the Colts more than made up for
this numerical deficiency by chalk-
ing up first and fourth places in
the hammer throw, in the only final
event of the afternoon to gain an
early margin over their rivals.
The schools qualifying men for
the finals tomorow afternoon are;
Toledo Scott 16, Detroit Northwest- I
ern 15, Eastern 5, Tilden Tech,
Redford and Dearborn 4, North-
eastern, Northern, Cass Tech, and
Kalamazoo Central all with 3.

Resuming Conference competi-
tion after a lapse of more than
three weeks, the Michigan Varsity
nine will swing into action against
an ancient rival, Illnois, at 3:30
this afternoon on the Ferry field
diamond. The Wolverines must
defeat the Illini in order to retain
their position, undefeated, at the
van of the Big Ten race.
This will mark the first Con-
ference game for the Michigan
team since April 17, when North-
western was defeated by a 4-1
score. Games with Minnesota and
Iowa were cancelled due to weather
and other conditions. If Michigan
should lose today's contest, the
Varsity will drop considerably in
