MILE RELAY RACE
SETSE EORE D
Field House Marks Fall
Tracksters Win Easily
WIN NINE FIRST PLACES
One of the most spectacular mile
relay races ever witnessed in Yost
field house brought the spectators
to their feet last night as Letts of
the University of Chicago over-
came a slight lead held by Russell
of Michigan to race to a dead heat
when both men broke the tape
simultaneously, setting a new field
house record and climaxing a
thrilling dual meet which set three
new field house records. Michigan
won the meet easily, 73 to 22, and
took 9 first places to a lone win
for' the Maroons with one dead
As Russell took the baton from'
Glading, he set out with a 4-yard
lead over Letts, Big Ten half mile
champ, but the Maroon star worked
up from behind and with a mighty
show of endurance raced down the
stretch to a tie amid a roar of
applause. The new record of 3 min.
26,2 lowered that set here in 1923
by the Harvard team at 3:27.1.
Both Russell and Letts also set'
new field house records in other
events. The Michigan man's honors
came in the 440 when he raced to
a win in :50.9 lowering a record
of :51.6 set by the Seymour boys
last year. Letts' record win came
in the mile run when both he and
his teammate ran away from
Wolfe, the Maize and Blue entrant,
to lower Wolfe's own mark to
4:23.1. Letts has been beaten by
only Chamberlain of Michigan
State this season in the mile.
Eddie Tolan came through again
to beat Captain East of the Ma-
roons in the dashes. Campbell
placed second. The time was fair
at :6.3. Michigan's trio of entries
in the two mile completely blanked
the Midway entries to take all three
positions. Austin failed to lower his
record of last week, but gave a
fine performance. Howell and Hill
placed second and third respec-
Egleston High Point Man.
Egleston raced to a close win
over Black of Chicago in the high
hurdles and then took a third in
the low ones to claim high point
honors with 6 to his credit. Inci-
dentally, Michigan lowered every
dual meet record with the Maroons
of last season except in the shot
and high jump and ties in the hur-

Pitching Staff Is Outstanding
Weakness of 1931 Wolverine
Nine; Veterans Back. ,
When the infielders and outfield-
ers of Coach Ray Fisher's 1931 Var-
sity baseball squad report for their
first practice session of the season
tomorrow, the problem of just
where the Michigan team is going
in the coming diamond campaign
should be a little nearer solution'
than it is at the present time.
Up to the present only the pitch-',
ers and catchers have been going
through the daily paces at Yost
Field House in an effort to whip
their hurling arms into shape be-
fore the appearance of the rest of'
the squad. Within a few days the
other players on the team will
start their batting drills in the
field house cages.
Hurling Staff Weak.
All along it has been acknowledg-
ed that the pitching situation will
offer Coach Fisher his biggest prob-
lem of the coming campaign. If
the Varsity mentor can find an-
other capable hurler to pair off
with Compton on the mound the
team ought to get through its
schedule in fairly good shape.
This second twirler will probably
be selected from7 either Siegle,
McNeil, Presbry, Bartholomew, or
McKay, all but the last named
Sbeing right handers.
It ehi iity has Dealt but igtlyI
with the diamond team. iwit the
result that only Foe1ger, a promis-
g hurler who never has been
!l g 9.ie for the team, is barred from
playing this spring.
Veterans Assured Placos.
Roy Hudson, because of his abil-
ity at the plate, has a firm hold on
the first base position, while Art
Superko and Norm Daniels are
equally sure of their positions
somewhere in the infield.
Among the better infield candi-
dates from the freshman team of
last year are Manuel and Berger,
both big boys that play a nice
fielding game. Another infield pos-
sibility is Eastman, who played
some ball on the Varsity in 1929.
Captain Jack Tompkins is a certain
choice for one outfield position.

H. Bauss won the light-heavy-
weight championship of the cam-
pus last year. He will try to defend
his title against Starwas and other
headliners of this group. Lee Os-
borne is a newcomer in this weight
but Philbin expects him to give a
good account of himself in his first
tournament. Paul Chittenden was
runner-up to Bauss last year and
is back again to give stiff opposi-
tion to the other fighters in this
group. By Friday night two of these
stars will be eliminated. Recent
workouts seem to favor Starwas
and Bauss although Chittenden
has improved a great deal since
last year and Osborne is of un-

strong enough to make the meet
Ohio State has lost to the Hoos-
iers already and Chicago is not
rated as good as the Wolverines by
most experts. Iowa on the other
hand, is a power to be reckoned
with and has aspirations for col-

(Northwestern, and Minnesota are
not given much chance to finish at
the top since their teams are weak

may be expected to come in for
enough places to make the tith

The remaining sport event on
Michigan's calendar is the fencing
meet with Northwestern scheduled
here Saturday night. The Wolver-
ines have already defeated Ohic
State and Wisconsin, and they seer

to rate the Maize and Blue squad
