Iowans and Badgers StampedI
as Favorites to Win
Track Title.

While not doped to win the West-
ern Conference indoor track meet
tomorrow and Saturday at Minne-
apolis, the 17 Wolverine trackmen
are expected to place in the upper
bracket while several of the indi-
viduals on the team may rank high
in the various events. The Michi-
gan squad will leave for the north-
land at 9:30 this morning and will
arrive at the scene of the meet Fri-
day morning.
According to the pencil work
done by the dope experts, the meet
is likely to become a duel between
Iowa, last year's champion and
Wisconsin, champion in 1927. Nev-
ertheless either Indiana or Chicago
are strong enough to scramble the
results of the different events and
perhaps take the title.
'Wisconsin has had an unusually'
successful season this year, having
defeated Ohio State, Chicago, and
Northwestern in a quadrangular
meet, beat Minnesota and swamped
Notre Dame's powerful team 54 to
32 last Saturday. The Badgers
hope to take two or three first
places, but in view of the high cal-
ibre of competition in all events,
'it is doubtful if they will be able
to win more than one event.
Ted Shaw, who has been high
jumping consistently at 6 feet, 2
inches, is the one Badger repre-
sentative most likely to win five
first place points. No other track-
man in the Big Ten has been com-
ing within half an inch of his
heighth so far this season.
The all around team strength of
Iowa, however, has made the
Hawkeyes the favorite to win the
championship for the second con-
secutive time at Minneapolis. Iowa,
hopes were further heightened by!
the announcement that the broad
jump would be included in the list
of events in as much as the lanky
Edward Gordon, of' the Hawkeye
squad is the outstanding performer
in this event in the Conference.
Michigan's logical entry to win a
first place is Eddie Tolan, but the
Michigan flash has not been per-I
forming up to standard so far this
season and will have to face some
of the best conpetition in the i
country in this meet. At present

For Ice CaptaincyI
Michigan's championship hockey
team will not select next year's
captain until shortly before the
1931 season, according to Coach
Eddie Lowrey. This is the first
time in years that a Wolverine
team has not picked a leader for
the following season directly after
the finish of its schedule.
All of the regulars on this year's
team have graduated or will only
be juniors next season, leaving the
choice of captaincy either to some
player who filled only a spare role
this year or to one of the sopho-
mores. Believing it to be much bet-
ter- to wait until net season the
Michigan coach" stated that the
election will be held at that time.
