Announcing the time of the tri-
angular meet with Michigan State
and Michigan State 'Norml as;
Thursday, February 27, at 8 p. m.,,
Coach Steve Farrell sought to cor-
rect a false impression that the
meet was scheduled for Wednes-'
day. It is the first time in the his-
tory of the three schools that these;
teams have been slated to compete1
with each other on the indoor,
Pottle Eligible.
With the probable addition of
Pottle, leading Varsity pole vaulter,
the Michigan squad should be con-
siderably strengthened. He was'
kept out of the Chicago meet due
to an incomplete not worked off
in time.,.
If the Maize and Blue team can!
avoid the bad luckof "falls or l
further injury to its stais it should
find itself a slight favoiite in the
meet with the neighborg schools
Austin l ,s been out of competi- I
tion with an injured foot but aside
from his absence Thursday night's
meet should fnd the Michigan
squad in good form and in full1
strength. Ypsilanti plans to send
over a squad of 25 men and it is!
expected that Michigan State will
enter a large number.
No Aliibis Offered.
The Michigan track mentor ex-
pressed disappointment with the
way in which the varsity sprinters
appeared in the meet last Satur-
day, but stated that there were no
alibis for the defeat at the hands
of Chicago. He added that Dalton
Seymour's fall in the 440 was a mis-
hap and nothing more than one

Coach'Veenker's Quintet Plays
Best Game of Season i
Downing- oosiers.
After watching his charges play
their best basketball of the season
against the Hoosier basketeers,
Coach Veenker was content to send
the Wolverine quintet through a
light drill yesterday afternoon
while the reserves engaged in a
short workout against the fresh-
man five.
According to reports from Indi-
ana, the Hoosiers played a dead,
listless type of ball, while, accord-
ing to the Wolverine standpoint,
the Maize and Blue quintet had
possession of the ball for such a
large portion of the game that the
Indiana five could not have played
a different sort of game if they had
been in the pink of condition:
From both sides it is' agreed that
the Michigan five displayed an ex-
ceptional brand of 'hasketball on
the defense. With the exception of
a few minutes during the last of
the first half and the first of the
second half, the Hoosiers were un-
able to approach anything resem-
bling a solutlion of the Wolverine
McCracken,dwho accounted for
11 of his team's 18 points, with five
field goals and one free throw, was
1 the only Indiana player to work
consistently against the Wolverines.
Then only one of his shots could be
blamed to any faulty guarding on
the part of Captain Chapman who
was assigned to stqp the flashy
Hoosier star.
Two of McCracken's shots came
on clever shifts in the Hoosier at-
tack, one with both of his feet in-
side the center circle, and the
fourth from an overhead shot from
