Bouts to Decide Men
jfor Conference Meet
Coach Cliff Keen announced yes-
terday that his wrestling team
would hold trial matches this Sat-
urday to determine which men
would be entered in the Western
Conference meet which is slated
for next week-end at Chicago.
Although Michigan has already
lost one Conference meet this year
to Indiana, Coach Keen hopes thatl
his men will take a first in this
tournament. Although the official
Big Ten championship is not de-
termined by the outcome of this
meet, the individual championships,
are, and the team which takes the
most titles is counted high in the

Coach Hopes Team Will Benefit

As Big Ten track teams are trek-
ing their way toward the twentieth
annual indoor Conference meet
which is scheduled to start tonight
in the Badger field house at Mad-
ison, dopesters are wracking their
brains in an efiort to predict the
outcome of one of the most evenly
matched affairs in recent years.
Three teams, Wisconsin, the de-
fending champion, Indiana, and
Michigan appear on the basis of
past performances to be a tossup
for the high point honors.
In fact, when the meet is put
down on paper, the Maize and Blue
has Ol, of the best opportunities to
run off with the meet that it has
hadI in some time. Of course, all
this is on the basis that the Varsity
stars come through with at least
as ,ood if not better records than
they have hung up in the past few
weeks. On this assurance, Coach
Hoyt's thinclads should be good for
probably two firsts, two seconds.
four thirds, and a point or two here
and hcre in the remaining events.
Eddie Tolan is the mainstay in
he sprints and is counted on to
come through with a first place
here, but with Campbell and Symth
at his heels Michigan should gather
in about eight tallies. Another first
is most likely in the relay run, for
the Michigan quartet of Russell,
Glading, DeBaker, and Eknovich
set one of the fastest times in the
Conference this season in the Chi-
cago meet last week. The run was
called a dead heat, but the Midway
team got a big break on that de-
Austin is anotner good bet to
come across in the mile with a run
which may break the existing rec-
ord of 9:26.4 especially when he and
Leas of Indiana battle it out for
first position. As far as their pre-
vious work is concerned, Leas is
the winner of the event last season,
but Austin's time of 9:31.2 leaves
little to choose between the two
nen. Our prediction is a win for
the Michigan entrant.
Henke is Record Holder.
The 440 run is going to be one of
the high lights of the meet with
Capt. Henke of Wisconsin almost
bound to lower the present record
of :50.1 set by Baird of Iowa. Henke
has run the quarter in :48.9 already
this season, breaking the 10-year
old world's indoor mark. Russell,
of Michigan, has a big 'opportunity
for a second place in this event wvith
his time of :50.9 which he ran in
the last meet. Bloor and Strother
of Ohio State wi e giving Russell
plenty of opposition for that posi-
tion, however. Striecher of Indiana
is also a great possibility. Dale
Letts, the great Chicago star, is !
good for a first in any of four'
events he may enter, the 440, 880,
mile, and relay, but it would be{
physically impossible for him to
compete in all of them. His best
bets will be in the half mile and
the relay. He is no mean miler

Cagers to Strum e
for Fial Game Wins [
j rgarn and Clacago to Face
Wolver"nes Next.
By Joe Russell
Should Coach George Veenker's
Wolverine five be able to repeat
earlier-season victories over Indi-
ana and Chicago, the Maize and
Blue is assured of at least a tie in
the race for Western Conference
honors. But with the Hoosiers slat-
ed to do their best to stop Michi-
g a n at Bloomington tomorrow.
night, and Chicago preparing to in-
vade Ann Arbor next Monday for
the final game of the season, the
Wolves still have a rough road a-
head of them before the reckonings
are made up.
Michigan took indiana 33-24
here two weeks ago, after giv-
ing the invaders a 13-12 lead at
the end of the first half, and
should be able to reheat tomor-
row night. The game here was
by far the roughest played this
year, and the battle tomorrow
will probably be anything but
a picnic. True, Indiana show( i
littke in the line of liasketball
ability against Ohio State last
:iiouday night, but the Hoosiers
figure that their team is just
about due for a burst of speed
which will wind up their sea-
san in a blaze of glory.
'T he Chicago game will make not
only the last appearance of the
1930-31 Wolverine Varsity, but will
also be the last Veenker-coached
cage team to take the floor. Coach
Veenker is terminating his connec-
tions with the University of Michi-
gan this year in order to take up
his duties as head football coach at
Iovwa State. In the first meeting
between Michigan and Chicago the
Wolves had little difficulty in trim-
ming the Midway aggregation 41-
15 at Chicago. The Maroons, how-
ever showed surprising strengthI
last Monday night in holding Illin-
ois, to a 36-30 win.
With these facts in mind it
is easy to see that Coach Veen-
ker still has some worries on his
mind before his team's suits are
laid away in moth balls until

Controversy Looms With North

CHICAGO, March 5.-Battle lines
