First Round

Egleston and Wolfe Should Turn
in Victories in Hurdles
and Mile Run.
Two of the outstanding track-
sters who will compete in the Cor-
nell classic tomorrow night with
the idea of turning in a couple of
first places for Michigan are Haw-
ley Egleston, Coach Chuck Hoyt's
ranking hurdler and Harmon Wolfe,
the best miler on the Varsity squad.
Egleston came here from Hyde
Park high school in Chicago where
he held the state hurdle title for
Illinois. He is one of the quartet
of sophomore hurdlers who are
carrying all the responsibility for
this event for Hoyt this year. At
present he ranks with the best
hurdlers on the Michigan honor
roll, holding a tie for the Yost
field house record at :08.4.
Ranks High in Big Ten.
Although his performance has
been ratlier in and out in the past
few weeks, he has chalked up a
fairly enviable record, which he
seems bent on improving at the ex-
pense of the Red and Whte +timber
toppers from the East. Over at
West Virginia in the first meet of
this season and Hawley's baptism
of fire as a member of the Varsity,
'he set a new record for the Morgan-
town field house in the low jumps
with a mark of :08.1 and then tied
the high mark with :08.8. With his
first indoor track season about to
be concluded, Egleston a r e a d y
ranks as fourth in the Big Ten
hurdling circles. His competition
against Hart of Cornell tomorrow
should add another victory to his
One of the. best events on the
program for the meet will be the
spirited contest between Wolfe and
Arthur Martin of Cornell for the
dual meet championship in the1
mile. Although Harmon is a bit out
of condition owing to a touch of
the fiu, he can be depended upon
to put forth all he has, for there
is a good deal of rivalry between
these two milers. Last year over at
the Ithaca oval, Harm set a new
dual Meet record for the course
only to have Martin come back a
week or so ago and break that rec-
- Wolfe Out to Win.
The same tough luck has hit him
in regard to the Yost field house
record for after setting a record at
4:26.7 in the triangular meet he
only held it a week before Dale
Letts, the Chicago ace, came along
and knocked it all to smithereens.
Thus, with nothing to defend and
everything to gain, the little Mich-
igan miler is going to make Martin
run a whirlwind of a heat if he
wants to win.
Wolfe hails from Lakewood high
school in Ohio where he ran the
half and the mile for a couple of
years. While a freshman under
Coach Hoyt he could make the 8
laps in 4:30 and better. He is now
a junior in the physical education
department. He was a member of
the cross country team last season
and will captain the squad during
its next schedule.
Even the Western Conference
took notice of the little Varsity mil-
er last spring when he took the
fourth place in the big outdoor
meet. He had a bit of tough luck
in the indoor meet at Madison this
year when he was knocked down
by a fellow runner and lost his pace.
He was a member of the two-mile
relay team which set up a new
record over at West Virginia at 8:05
lowering the old record 23 seconds.!
The same tam competed in the
Illinois relays but was edged out
of a win by a small margin. His
mark over at Cornell last year was
4:25, and it is this mark which he
must repeat or better to win to-

Intrmnural offlcias are looking
forward in anticipation to a great
inter-fraternity track meet next
Tesday night. This event was a de-
cided success last year and the
number of entries already register-
ed at the office far exceds those
of last year. Phi Kappa Psi are
the defending champions and they
hive entered men in every event in
the hope of capturing this trophy
again. Fraternities are not allow-
ed to enter freshmen who did not
compete in the AiI-Frosh meet.
There is no limit to the number
of entries that a house may send
in. To receive entrance points a
team must have six men in the
meet. The entries will close tonight

Half of Batters on Michigan's
Regular Team Hit From
Wrong Side.
College baseball has never been
noted for an over-abundance of
players that took their cuts at the
ball from the left side of the plate,
yet the Michigan team of 1931 will
offer a direct contrast to this ac-'
^epted fact. No less than four ,of
the Wolverine .regulars, half of the
team that will play day in and day'
out for Michigan, will be portside
In yesterday's practice session in
the batting cages at Yost field
house the honors were about even,
with four southpaw hitters and
four right handers taking a part
:n the batting drill. Jack Tompkins,
Harry Eastman, Roy Hudson, and,
Larry Butler all take their cuts
from the wrong side of the plate,
while John Drabicke, Norm Daniels,
Art Superko, and Mike Diffley were
the right handers in attendance.
Few of the hits that were made
in yesterday's batting drill were of
the resounding variety that spells
extra base blows on a diamond.
This was due largely, however, to
the fact that conditions outdoors
made the lighting in the field house;
extremely hard on the batters.
With a minimum of light to hinder
them, the Varsity sticksmiths were
at a distinct disadvantage to the
pitchers, who were able to curve
the balls across the plate with rea-
sonable assurance that they would
not be driven back at them.
Several of the pitchers showed toj
good advantage when it came to
putting deceptive curves and dropst
