Keller, Olympic Hurdler,
Will Run For Ohio;
Seen As Winner
With the Conference meet looming
less than two weeks away, Michigan
tracksters are entering into a final
splurge of intense drill. The imme-
diate obstacle to be overcome is the
Illinois-Ohio State-Michigan triang-
ular meet at Urbana Saturday.
The make-up of the squad which
will represent the Wolverines in the
coming meet has not been definitely
decided as yet, but in all probabili-
ties it will be almost identical to the
one that made the Chicago trip. Tom
Ellerby, quarter-miler, who has been
suffering from a knee injury lately,
may not be in condition by that time.
To Run Today
This afternoon five of the half-
milers will compete for a position on
the squad. Braden, Bazely, Freeze,
Rod Howell, and McManus will run,
and if the time is good enough one
of them will be chosen. Braden ap-
pears to have the edge.
The impending meet with the Illini
and Buckeyes is significant in that
the three teams entered, along with
Indiana, are the outstanding con-
tenders for Big Ten honors. The re-
sults of the meet will quite clearly
indicate the favorite for the follow-

NEW YORK, Feb. 27.-(A")-The
intercollegiates, the track and field
meet which usually manages to pack
as many thrills into 12 events as the
other meets of the indoor season pro-
vide in all their long programs com-
bined, brings the 1933 winter cam-
paign up to its grand climax next
The original entry sheet for the
twelfth annual indoor meet of the
intercollegiate association of ama-
teur athletes of America listed 523
runners, jumpers and weight men
from 27 colleges. Of these some 300,
the pick of the lot, will compete.
the Wolverines and Wildcats are con-
ceded the inner track in the race forx
Big Ten honors.
The Wolves have the upper hand
at present due to their impressive 46
to 29 win over Northwestern three
weeks ago, but Coach Matt Mann
fears that the Wildcats, hungry forI
revenge, will take his swimmers into
camp in their return engagement.
Reports coming out of Evanston
indicate that the Wildcats have been
making a great come-back since the
drubbing that Schmielcr and his men'
Witnesses of the last meet said
that the loss of Kerber, star back-
stroker, on the eve of the meet had
demoralized the Wildcats, which
might account for the crushing de-
feat that Mann's swimmers admin-
istered to a supposedly strong team.
Wolves Break Marks
Just what the Wildcats are going
to have to do to take the Wolverines
has been demonstrated in the past
week when the Schrnieler men, fin-
ally reached top form, cracked aI
half-dozen existing Conference rec-
ords either in exhibitions or during3
Schmieler said yesterday that thej
Wildcats would have to do a little
record breaking of their own if they
were to take firsts in the 220, 440,
backstroke, breaststroke, and the re-

bag, but the same can be said of no
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 27.-Maj.
John L. Griflith, president of the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Association
and Big Ten athletic commissioner,
will be the principal speaker at the
banquet on Friday night, March 24,1
that will provide one of the features
at the second annual Football Clinic
'at Purdue University, it was an-
nounced today by Coach Noble Kizer.
Griflith's appearance on the pro-I
gram will provide an added attrac-j
tion to the continuance of a meeting
that met with the instantaneous and
enthusiastic approval of high school
and college football coaches in Indi-
and neighboring states when inaugu-
rated by Kizer last year.
The two-day clinic, which is e«-
I pected to attract approximately 300
coaches, will be devoted to "practi-
cal" football, with outstanding men-
tors of the middle west assisting the
members of the Purdue gridiron staff
in conducting the demonstrations
and addresses that will comprise the
two-day program on Friday and Sat-
urday, March 24-25.
All phases of the grid game will be
touched upon in the program, and
every effort will be made to provide
ample time for individualized in-1
struction and round table discussions
in which the particular problems of
attending coaches can be covered.

last year he came through. Coach
Fisher, at the end of the season, had
only praise for the one, who in his
previous years, could hardly get a
grunt out of him.
Every year, former Michigan base-
ball stars who turn professional,
come back to Ann Arbor for their
pre-season workouts under Ray
Fisher. He gives them a considerable
amount of time and patience. His
own major league record speaks for
itself and consequently the men will
work hard under him. Incideintally'
major league scouts take Fisher's
judgment of a player, to be the best
estimation possible on the man in

Pole vaulting and shot putting,
seem to be the Illinois forte. In the
Notre Dame meet recently Cook put
the shot 47 feet 5 inches to a new
Illinois record. In the same meet
Seeley won the pole vault, crossing
the bar at 13 feet 6 inches.
Ohio State's strength is in the
dashes and hurdle events. In the In-
diana meet Don Bennett tied the
American record with a time of :06.2
for the 60-yard dash. Jack Keller,
Buckeye Olympic hurdler, loped the
70-yard low hurdles in the present-
able time of :077. Pantlind and
Kemp will have to go some to keep
them in sight.
Woolsey Leading Miler
Illinois appears to have the mile
run cinched if Woolsey turns in any-
where near his normal time. His lat-
est accomplishment was a 4:17 mile
in the Iniana meet. Incidentally he
is conference cross-country cham-
pion. "Doe" Howell and Childs of
the Wolverines will run against
Willis Ward is the outstanding
man in the high jump. The lanky
sophomore, rated the best high-
jumper in the country, will probably
not open up but will save his
strength for the Big Ten meet. Osty
is the Illinois representative in this
event. His best jump this season is
six feet one 'and one-half inches,
some three inches short of Ward's
Captain DeBaker and "Chit" Allen
will be waging a battle among them-
selves in the 440-yard run. DeBaker
came in first in the Chicago meet,
and Allen evened matters up in the
A. A. U. meet by copping the event.
By MARJORIE WESTERN
Football, from the spectators' point
of view, has some times been called
"a women's game." Whether she
knows anything of the technique of
the sport,.it is the accepted thing
that the co-ed should go and cheer,
wildly for her college team.
Hockey as a University sport is
just coming into its heritage in the
middle west. Though popular for
some years in the east, it has never
received the attention given the ma-
jor sports at Michigan, and until
very recently has received no pub-
It is probably due to this that the
audiences at local hockey games are
made up principally of men. Women
on the campus know little about the
game and display less interest.
Strangely enough, the elements
supposed to interest women in sport
are common to both football and
Color, supplied by the huge cheer-
ing throngs in the stadium, is con-
tributed by the smaller, but more en-
thusiastic crowds which pack the
Speed and skill are more truly in-
herent qualities of hockey than of
the box-office record-holder. Puck}
carrying and passing supply con-
tinual fast action, and the thrill of
a speedily executed scoring thrust is
not to be outdone by the rare runs
which even the fastest backs can
get free for on the gridiron.
The chances for individual star-
ring, talways interesting to women
spectators, who invariably pick fa-
vorites in all their sports) are greater
on the ice than the football field.
Each man is stationed so that some
phase of the action depends almost
entirely on him, and stellar perform-
ances are turned in every game by+
at least three players.
Since hockey is, according to all
indications spreading in popularity,
and combines so many features of
widely-publicized sports, women are
losing out by not taking a more ac-
tive interest in the game.
Smoking at the games and the na-
tural invigorating air, which, by the
way is not too chilly, gives another
basis for comparison with football.
Of course we should not tell about
the couple next to us in the first
game we ever saw. But they were
very happy, wrapped up in their robe,
and kept cheering no matter what
