terday noon.

Salaries are Discussed. I
A heate'd discussion was held at
the meeting of the board on the
subject of giving salaries to the
president and recording secretary
of the organization. It was brought
out that the Union officers are vir-
tually the only important non-
athletic activity heads on the cam-
pus who are not remunerated in,
some form,
On the other hand it was argued
that never in the past has it been
felt necessary to pay the officers to
insure that their calibre be high
and that they conscientiously do
their work.
A motion was finally made em-
powering the president to appoint
a committee of five to study the
matter and to report to the board
with a recommendation at the ear-
lie'st possible moment. Hugh R.
Conklin, '32, present president of
the Union, urged that anyone hav-
ing a definite suggestion on the
subject communicate with him at
If the committee recommends
that salaries be paid to the two
senior officers of the Union, and
the measure is approved by the
board of directors, it will go into
effect with the year 1932-33.
It was also brought out at the
meeting that financially the Union
is ahead of its position at the same
time last year.

the hurling battle that resulted in
Michigan's second loss in as many
Harley McNeal and George Mills
opposed each other as the game
began, but Mills was hit by a ball
pitched by McNeal in the fifth and
had to retire. Joe Wrobke finished
the game for Illinois and got credit
for the victory. McNeal, who yield-
ed eight hits, left the game in the
seventh in favor of Wistert, who
held the Illini to one hit thereafter.
Steurnagel's double for Illinois in'
the seventh was the only extra base
hit of the game. He was put out
on a fielder's choice, but hits by
Schustek and Pike drove in Cher-

inning. Michigan started a ninth

Hurt in 220 Yard

Stiff Wind May Force
Discarding of New
Records Set
By Sheldon C. Fullerton.
(Speciali to 'he aily)
EVANSTON, Ill., May 21.-A
leg injury to Jack Keller, Ohio
State star, in the 220-yard low
hurdles event, forced him out of
the race and made it possible for
Michigan to annext the Big Ten
track title here today.
The Wolverines ran up a total
of 50% points as against Ohio
State's 46% and Indiana's 43Y.
The other scores were: Illinois
31%, Minnesota 1812, Iowa 17%,
Wisconsin 17, Purdue 9, and Chi-
cago 6. Northwestern failed to
Michigan placed men in all but
three events, climaxing the day
with a sensational victory over In-
diana in the mile relay.
Records Fall.
With a stiff wind blowing against
the backs of runners in the shorter
sprints, several record breakin~g
times were turned in. Two world
marks were broken, two were tied,
and one Big 'en mark went by the
boards, but it is probable that
none of these nmarks' except the
shot put record will be recognized.
While the track team was
nosing out the Buckeyes to win
the conftrence track meet, the
golf squad was doing equally
well, %oniny Fischer leading
them on to victory at Minneap-
olis in the Big Ten competition.
For details of the matches see

Bennett of Ohio State broke
'oeke's mark in the 220-yard dash
hi the time of :20.5. He also tied
'he record of Eddie Tolan in the
100-yard dash, doing it in :09.5.

itre the 220-yard low hurdles in 23

Michigan took three of the first
fOur places in the 440, Ed Russell
copping first place after a hard
race. Brooks added another first in
the discus, and the relay team also

The outcome of the meet was un-
itrtain until the final event, when
Mosio of Michigan came through
with a 6 feet 2 inch mark in the
high jmnp to tie for second place
and clinch the victory.

East Engineering Blaze
Due to Sparks.


Firemen made short work of a
blaze which broke out on the roof
of the East Engineering building at
12:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
Building officials estimated the
(lamage at approximately $1000,
The fire started from a spank
which ignited wooden flasks on the
roof, used in sand molds. The blast
furnace on the floor below had been
in operation all morning, and it
was thought that a spark had flown
out of the cupola above the chim-
ney and ignited the flasks.
The roof on that side of the build-
ing probably will have to be re-
placed, as well as windows which
were broken. Water damaged a few
easting's on the floor below which
