Cornell Team Shows Strength
Only in Certain Events;
Weak in Others.
By H. W. Woodward.
(Track Editor-Cornell Daily Sun)
The Cornell track team will meet
Michigan tonight with a strong but
poorly balanced squad. It has been
moderately successful in its meets
this year, but has been greatly
weakened by injuries and illnesses.
The strength lies in the mile, and
two mile runs, the pole vault, high
jump, and shot put, with little ma-
terial in the shorter distances.
In its first meet of the season
Cornell lost to Harvard in a Tri-
angular Meet at Boston, 421/-41,
Dartmouth trailing with some 30
points. In the Indoor Intercollegi-
ates the following week, Cornell was
third with 17 and seven-tenths
points to 19 by Harvard and 38
and one-tenth by Pennsylvania.
Cornell won an unexciting meet
from dale Saturday by61-52.
Collyer is Star.
Everett Colyer. ;tar pole vaulter,
tied with Berlinger of Penn for a
new intercollegiate record of 13 ft.
8' inches, at New York, and the
week before won the Triangular
Meet with a vault of 13 ft. 10%".
He has done over 13 feet consist-
ently this year. Belloff can also do
13 feet and Courtney 12 ft. 6".
Arthur Martin has twice run the
mile in 4:24 and one-fifth thi's
year, once breaking the Cornell
Drill hall record of 4:26 and two-
fifths held by Wolfe of Michigan.
Finch and Mulligan can do the
distance under 4:40. Wolfe and
Martin should have a good race
this week.
Al Ranney is the leading two
miler, his best time being 9:32 and
four-fifths in the Intercollegiates
Crosby and Kellogg can break 10
minutes for the distance.
Bring 'three Jumpers.'
Ebelhare can do about 6 feet in
the high jump, and Hoppenstedt
and Haidt are good for about 5 ft.
10". Schoenfeld is the oustanding
shot putter, having done 46 ft. 934"
this winter. Gordon is next, cap-
able of a little over 40 feet.
Cornell is weak in the half mile
this year, with Eckert and Mangan
running the distance in about 2:02.
Proctor is the leading quarter miler
and should be able to do 52 seconds.
Meinig is the best sprint man, and

Paul Dean Promises
as Much as 'Dizzy'

ing in the footsteps of Jerome

of the St. Louis Cardinals, from

Paul Dean, closely resembling
"Dizzy" in features and build,
will take a try with the Houston
Buffs this season. He is 17 years
old, and a right hander. It was
in Houston that "Dizzy" made
the reputation which sent him
up to the majors just before the
close of the 1930 race.
Coach Kipke Sends Grid Players
Through Drill Sessions
in I-M Building.
While i' will be quite some time
yet before the candidates for the
1931 Michigan football team can
ge out to the open spaces of Ferry
'i!eld for their practice sessions, the
f group of players working out under
Head Coach Harry Kipke and As-
sistant Coach Jack Blott are rapid-
ly rounding into condition in the,
Intramural building.
Every afternoon the squad is put
through a series of exercises thatl
are expected to get them in shape
for the more rigorous outside work
later on. ,These exercises are usu-
ally followed by a few minutes'
work at running through plays, and
that in turn is followed by a long
passing drill, with either Harry
Newman or one of the members of
last year's freshman team doing the
Several of the linemen are also
getting instruction in' the art of
blocking, so that they will be that
much further advanced when the
call comes to get out on the grid-
iron again. Centers are .also being
put through their paces, confining
their work to trying to hit movable
markers placed upon a net in the
Intramural Building gym. Although
. most of the men that are engaging
in these drills were members of the
. freshman teams last year, more
regulars are expected to turn out
.-s soon as outdoor drills begin.

Contest Will be Last for Year
and Finale for Captain
Gordon With Team.
Coach Johnstone will send his
varsity fencers into the last meet
of the season tonight against the
Toledo Y. M. C. A. team.
This meet will mark the finale
for Captain Gordon of the Wolver-
ines. Gordon will lead his team-
mates in the sabre and foil events.
In the latter division, Gordon is
considered one of the best in the
Conference and because of lack of
capable swordsmen in the sabre
class, he has assumed these added
duties by fencing in both events.
This has marred his foil work in
some degree.A
Friedman Graduates.
Besides Gordon, Coach Johnstone
will lose Freidman in the foils after,
tonight's meet. Powers, Winig, De-
Stefano, and Lovell will return next
Toledo will not present as strong
a lineup as Michigan's last few
meets have seen and for this rea-
son Coach Johnstone may alter his
lineup in order to give his reserve
naen a chance to show their true
Gordon To Start.
In the last meet of the season
Captain Gordon is slated to start
the fencing in the first match of
the foil division. Lovell and Fried-
man are Michigan's other two en-
tries in this event.
Captain Gordon and DeStefano
will uphold the Maize and Blue in
the sabre class. Both of these men
should win their matches as the
Toledo team will not present strong
sabre men.
Subs May Fence.
Winig and Powers will eachfence
the lone Toledo entry in the, epee
event. Any one of Michigan's regu-
lars may be substituted in order to
give the. inexperienced members of
the squad a chance.

There will be two sessions oft
