and the Michigan squad as a whole
n showed a well-balanced aggregation
that should be able to pile up points
~ against Conference opponents.
it This week's competition includes
a meet with Michigan State here
L Friday. The Wolverines have not
lost to the Spartans for several
years, and should win handily over
the East Lansing squad again this
_ week if the weather takes a favor-
able turn in order to give the more
inexperienced members on the Wol-
d verine team a chance to get a few
d days of much needed practice.
Coach Johnstone indicated that
there is a possibility of meeting the
SMichigan State Normal team from
e Ypsilanti tomorrow to work a littleI
is actual competitive drill.
- Following Friday's meet the Var-
d sity is carded to journey to Colum-

r, Buckeye combination on Monday.
g This will be one of the stiffest meets
of the year, as the Ohio State team
i x ecently won their meet with Ohio
e Wesleyan with a complete shutout.

Losing the Century Dash
Race to Glass.
When Michigan's quartet of mid-
die distance stars stepped out ahead
of Notre Dame to win the featured
mile relay run out at Des Moines
last Saturday they stamped them-
selves as the fastest team that has
ever run the event for the Maize
and Blue. They lowered by one and
eight-tenths seconds a record which
has existed around old Ferry field
since 192 to set a new mark of

for a rich crop of double-headers
later in the season, especially if
this kind of weather holds for the
remainder of the week.
The feature game of yesterday
was the twelve-inning endurance

and the Senators at the Yankee
Stadium in New York. It was the
Yankees who finally cracked and

third Yankee pitcher of the day,
finished the mound assignment.

Teams for Annual Spring
Michigan's gridiron aspirants vwil
get their first opportunity during
the spring workouts to prove their
worth tornorrow afternoon in a
scrimmage session at the Wolver -
ine stadium. All three teams will
get a chance to show their wares
in this initial performance.
Coach Harry Kipke plans to hold
as many of these scrimmages as he
possibly can. The only limitations
to the workouts will be injuries to
the players and inclement weather,
and at present it appears as if the
weather may be quite a serious
limitation on spring training plans.
Hewitt to Captain Blues.
Bill Hewitt will captain the blue
eleven which is made up largely of
veterans from last fall's Varsity,
while Stanley Fay, a member of
the physical education eleven last
year, will lead the yellow team
which is composed of Junior Var-
sity players and freshmen. The
third squad is under the leadership
of Harry Stinespring and is made
up of members of last fall's year-
Cold weather with slight flurries
of snow marred yesterday's prac-
tice session on South Ferry field. In
spite of the cold the men went
through a hard workout in which
they displayed a great amount of
pep and vigor.
Three Teams Chosen.
The squad worked in three divi-
sions, with one group going out
after passes while an opposing end
tried to take it away from the re-
ceiver. The other two sections were
drilled on charging and blocking,
in one group an end and back tak-
ing out an opposing tackle, and in
the other two linemen working to-
Later in the day the three teams
worked out separately, ' running
through their plays and perfecting
their teamwork in preparation for
Wednesday's scrimmage session.

Varsity Makes Good Showing.
This victory was but one of the
many which the Wolverine thin-j
clads turned in. In fact, Coach1
Chuck Hoyt said that it is probably
the best showing that any Varsity
team has ever made at the famous
Drake carnival. Every effort was
made to annex the relay events, he:
said, with but little attention on the!
individual events. It was a most
auspicious opening meet on the out-
door schedule for the Michigan
Perhaps the biggest upset of the
affair was the defeat of Eddie
Tolan, Wolverine dashman and rec-
ord holder, by Peyton Glass, the
Oklahoma. Aggie century speed ar-
tist, who beat the illustrious Eddie
to the tape virtually by a nose in
the last bid which the Wolverine
will ever make for the Drake title.
Tolan also ran in the 440 and 880
relay events previous to the dash
The two-mile relay proved an-
other outstanding win when the
Michigan quartet of Braden, Wolfe,
Austin, and Turner came in an
easy victor over the Washington
