>ick Becomes DashStar


By Wilbur J. Myers.
When it comes to speed, you
ought to take a jaunt down to Yost
Field house one of these days and
take a look at the diminutive speed
artist whom Coach Charlie Hoyt
has developed of late. It was not
until the Virginia Relays that Don
Renwick took the sport's page by
surprise with his startling perform-
ances there, but he has consistently
beaten the veteran Jack Campbell
in'-the sprints and is recognized as
the ranking sprinter on the Varsity
track squad this season.
Defeated Eastern Champion.
His feat in easily conquering the
eastern intercollegiate i n d o o r
champion, Al Kelly of Georgetown
university, has stamped him as one
of the outstanding sprinters on the
indoor track this season. He equal-
ed the indoor 70-yard mark of 7.2
in the eastern meet, but Coach Hoyt
believes that he can do even better
than that. He took an easy frst
in the Chicago meet in 6.3.
The Conference meets with Chi-
cago, Ohio State and Illinois will
match this flash with some of the
best middle-western talent, but
Don's big test Till come at the Big
Ten meet in Chicago, March 11-12.
Despite his small stature, this
Pprinter flashes down the track
with almost lightning-like speed,
his short legs churning the cinders
-n almost incredible fashion. Per-
iaps the most outstanding feature
of, his performance is his perfect
start from the blocks. He is away
at the crack of the gun and in full
stride before most starters get un-
der way. ._
From Grand Rapids.
This new Michigan ace, successor
to such luminaries as Eddie Tolan,
Dehart Hubbard, Archie Hahn and
Carl Johnson, hails from Grand
Rapids where he competed in track
activities at Ottawa Hills high and
later composed the major portion
of the track team at the junior col-
lege there. Renwick is the cream
of the freshman sprinters of the
1931 squad. He is a senior in the
engineering college.
Football candid'ates will not
report on Wednesday, March 2,
as previously announced. In-
stead, the -first meeting will be
3eld on Wednesday, March 9, in
the field house at 8 o'clock.

Staff Will Be Crucial
This Season, Says

Hoy. -P1ns Cinder Tean's Rr
Test in A.A.U. Meet
Here Tonight.
Chicago's jeak track team proved
little Opposition for Michi san re
stcm: last Sturday niht and Coach
Hoytnwas unable to obtain much of
as basis for comparing his team w h
the conference foes which must b
met this year.
Only in the high and low hurdles
did the Maroon ,outfit furnisi any
opposition, Hawley Egleston !osing
These two events by close margins
to Black and Brooks. Less than a
foot separated Egleston and nis
Chicago foe in the high hurdles
, and the Wolverine star was only a
yard behind in the highs.
Renwick 'Beats Veteran Campbell.
Renwick, and Campbell showed
their heels to the Maroons in the
60-yard dash, finishing almost even,
Renwick's time being 6.3 seconds.
DeBaker furnished the opposition
for Captain Russell in the quarter-
mile dash the latter running the
distance in 50.8 to establish one of
the fastest marks in the conference
this year.
In the. longer distance, the Ma-
roons were hopelessly out of the
races. Turner and Ecknovich had
things to themselves in the half,
running a dead heat. Harmdn Wolfe,
altlough he is still recovering from
a slight attack of the flu, uroved
:,perior to Chicago's best in tht
mile,winning in slow time.
He ran behind the Maroon milers
until 200 yards from the tape, then
stepped out to win by a (onsider-
able margin. Another dead heat oc-
currcd in the two-mile, Howell and
Hill running entirely their own race
to win by two laips over Groebe,
their Chicago opponent.
Digh Jumpers JPerfrm Pooriy.
Michigan's sophomores, Moisio
and Roberts, dropped below their
usual mark in the high jump to die
for first with jumps of 5' 10". In
the shot, the best Chicago's entry
could do was 36 feet and Booker
Brooks and Danim both exceeded
this mark to take first and second.

Coah Fisher.

Michigan's baseball team will be
of championship caliber if Nthe
oitching staff, last year's weak spot,
is strengthened, states Coach Ray
Fisher. He has been working with
his battery men in Yost Field House
since the first of the year, with the
"est of the squad due to report next
Tuesday, March 8. The pitchers
nave just been tossing the ball
round, but will very shortly begin
Uo put everything they have on the,
ball. Coach Fisher hopes to take the
squad' outdoors next week if this
mild weather remains.
Among the thirteen pitchers,
there are two lettermen: McNeal
and Tompkins, the latter being the
captain of t e hockey team. The
Sothers include two southpaws, Tra-
vers and McKay; four sophomores,
Tillotson, O'Donnell, Wistert. and
Petoskey, the lattep two now busily
engaged with the basketball squad;
and five men who were on the
squad' last ,year, Manuel, Menefee,
C Barnet, Gersbach, and Kaplan.
Diffley, who was first-string
[catcher last year, and. Douglas, his
understudy, are back this year, thus
insuring Coach Fisher a strong
catching staff. Carr, who was on
the squad last year, and Pomorski,
a sophomore, are also trying out for
the catcher's position.
