Tolan and Murray to Match Speed
Against Percy Wiliams In
Sprint Events.
Cinderpath stars from Michigan
will take advantage of the oppor-
tunity presented by matching
strides with trackmen of interna-
tional prominence tonight in De-
troit at the Michigan A. A. U.
championships, according to an
announcement made late yesterday
afternoon by Coach Steve Farrell
Ten Wolverine thinclads will
make theiy initial appearance of
the year when they discard their
spikes in favor *of rubber-soled
shoes to run on the boards of the
Olympia. Laurels will probably gc
to the foreign competitors, as they
have in the most recent of the
meets in which such stars as Wide.

Wuerfel In Long Race
Michigan's star sophomore sprint
artist and former interscholastic
record holder, Eddie Tolan, and
Cliff Murray, auburn-thatched,
speedster, also a sophomore, are
entered in competion with a field
which will see some of the out-
standing dashmen in the world in
competition. They will be led. by
Percy Williams of VanCouver,
Canada, who sent the Maple Leaf,
to the top of the Olympic pole
twice in the games at Amsterdam
last summer. Williams had gone
through his tour of the states with-
out defeat until Sunday night,
when Jack Elder, Notre Dame
track captain, led the Vancouver
speed merchant by a scant yard in
the 60 yard dash event.
Other Varsity men who will see
action at Detroit are' Captain Ted
Wuerfel of the cross country team,
who will carry Michigan's bid in
the feature 2,600 yard event against
Wide and Nurmi, and Jesson who{
will compete in the 3,500 yard run.
Dale Seymour, who- won his letter
last year by his performances in
the quarter mile, will be entered in,
the 300 yard sprint and Benson,
star sophomore distance man and
captain of last years freshman
squad, has drawn the 1,000 yard
assignment. RlaQart
.s Veteran Relay uartet
Coach Farrell has decided to
enter a medley relay quartet and
it is this entry that should boast
the best chance to gain top honors
in the speedy competition at the
Detroit championship. Grodsky, a
letter winner front last year, will
be seen in the 20 yards, Tarbill,
another veteran, will run second
for Michigan in the quarter mile,
Lomont, the third veteran will turn
the 880, while Austin, a sophomore,
whose performances in the time
trials have been impressive, will
run the mile as anchor man.

hockey team, which conquered
Wisconsin in a previous match at

Coach Sauer's squad of 35 fresh-
man wrestlers are holding practice
sessions of a slightly more strenu-
ous nature in preparation for the
second all-Campus wrestling tour-I
nament schedluled in two weeks, as
well as the all-freshman meet to
be held before spring vacation.
Tnasmuch as all Varsity lettermen
and holders of AMA awards will be
barred from this all-Campus meet,
the chances of the freshmen ap-
pear unusually bright. Several of
the members of the yearling squad
gave a good account of themselves
in the last all-Campus meet, reach-
ing the semi-finals and the finals.
The yearlings are still devoting
much of their practice sessions to
the thorough mastering of the
fundamentals of the game. Much
time is spent in drilling on a few
essential holds.
Coach Sauer is sending out a call
for candidates in the middleweight
divisions. Contrary to all formerl
experience the present freshman
squad is iosthdeficient in its quan-
tity of material in the weights be-
tween 145 and 165 pounds.
