Wolverines Lead Qualifiers in Big Ten

Track Meet

Tolan, Russell, Campbell, Egles-
ton and Turner Gain Lead
for Varsity Team.
Maize and Blue Should Also Pick
Up Points in Relay and
Field Events.
By Jean Rose, Sports Writer
Wisconsin Daily Cardinal.
MADISON, Wis., March 6.-- Mich-
igan, favorites in the annual We't-
ern Conference indoor tracl meet
held at the field house here, ran
true to form to lead the s-hools in
the number of qualifiers, ,even men
being eligible to participat the
finals Saturday night.
With five firsts, a second, ma w
third, the Maize and Blue track-
men stamped themselves. as serw
threats to Wisconsin's supremacy
as 1931 Big Ten champions. The
Wolverines placed one or more men
in every event.
Eddie Tolan, Michigan's best nml
in the dashes, copped his favorite
event, beating out Captain Blil
Henke of Wisconsin, when the 3aC-
ger man pulled a tendon. R iloselI
also took a first in the 60 yard da,
besides getting a second in the 440
yard run.









Coach's Absence Causes Slight
Let-up in Practice for
Conference Meet.
Wrestling practice for the Varsity
squad continued in a light way yes-
terday afternoon as Coach Cliff
I ieen continued to be out of town.
Plenty of work is on the card today,
1however, because the men will have
to show what they know and that1
they can apply it unaer the coach's
cyc in tine trial matches to be held
at 3:00 o'clock this afternoon. The
idea is to get a line on the mate-
tial Michigan c in enter in the com-'
ing Conference meet.
Workouts Light.
With no meet this week and the
absence of the coach necessitated,
the Wolverines have had rather an
easy time of it during practice this
past week. Workouts were held
daily though, stressing counters
and working from the standing
position in order to prevent an-
other showing like the one against
the Hoosiers, although the Wild-
c its have bowed since to Michigan.
Following these drills, the mainE
purpose of which is really to keepE
the men in good condition for the
harder workouts coming next week,
assistant Coach Donohue has been
having the grapplers pair off and
play handball. This sport is goodI

Wildcat Fencing Meet
Wilt be Hed Ton'ight
Due to a mistake in scnedules,
Michigan's fencing meet with
Northwestern will be held at
7:30 o'clock tonight in the auxil-
iary gym, according to Coach
Johnstone. The meet was origin -
ally announced for last night.
The Wolverine team including
Friedman, Gordon, and Lovell,
foils; Gordon, DeStefano, Bow-
land, sabres; and Powers and
Winig, epee, gave an exhibition
last night for the fencing en-
thusiasts gathered at the gym.

Michigan faces one of its most
crucial tests of the season tonight
when the Wolverines battie Indiana
on the Bloomington court. The
Maize and Blue hopes of landing
in second place rest on the outcome
of tonight's game, and with opposi-
tion as strong as the Hoosiers are
sure to show, it will take a brilliant
brand of basketball to move Coach
Veenker's charges up in the rank-
Although Michigan already has
defeated their opponents in one
game this year, 33-24, this cannot
be taken as a prediction that they
will again win tonight. The Hoosiers
have a strong team, but have not
shown well in their last few games,
and by the law of averages should
be about due for a hot night.
With Purdue almost, sure of win-
ning from Iowa tonight, and Min-
nesota equally certain of defeating
Ohio State Monday, the Wolverines
will have to leap both Indiana andt
Chicago to stay in the race and
enter a three-way tie for second
At half-time in the first meeting
between Indiana and Michigan the
Hoosiers were leading 13-12, but
could not keep up the pace during
the second half. This game was
without doubt the roughest fracas
played in Ann Arbor this year.
