ridders Face Hardest Schedule In Recent

Years

Cross-Country
Team Depends.
o inVeterans
Captain Howell, Hill, Os=
trander, McManus Are
Best on Team
Michigan's hopes for a successful
cross country team this fall will de-
pend largely upon Captain Roger
Howell, star of the 1931 team and
runner-up in the Big Ten meet. In
placing second in the Conference
last year Howell demonstrated that
Michigan will have at least one
strong man for this season.
With the opening practice sched-
uled for next Mohday, Coach Hoyt
expects Ostrander, Hill, McManus,
Rod Howell, younger brother of the
Wolverine captain, Servis, McMillan,
and a few -others to lead the 1932
aspirants.
Ostrander Placed Tenth
Bob Ostrander, who placed tenth
in the Conference meet last year,
and Hill, who ranked sixteenth, are
the returning lettermen to support
the captain. Young Howell, Hoyt
Servis, and Archie McMillan are'
starting their first year of competi-
tion but are expected to show up
well.
Dick McManus, a reserve last year,
will enter his junior year in cross
country this fall. Coach Hoyt ex-
pects a vast .improvement in the
form and endurance in this young-
ster as he is larger than last season.
Schedule Not Finished
Michigan will meet Ohio State and
Illinois in a triangular meet early in
October and Michigan State October
29. Several. other meets are expected
to be lined up soon, especially with
Michigan Normal and Central Y. M.
C. A. of Detroit.

Yost to Speak Over
WWJ Tonight at 7:30
Fielding U. Yost, director of
Intercollegiate athletics, w i 11
speak tonight at 7:30 o'clock over
station WWJ. This will be the
football fans' first opportunity of
the season to hear the famous
coach over the air. He will com-
ment on Michigan's chance for a
successful 1932 football team.
Special mention of the schedule
and last year's great defensive
team will be incorporated into his
talk.
Mceal Stars
In Japan With
Michigan Team
The success of the Michigan base-
ball team on its trip to Japan has
been due largely to the successful
pitching of Harley McNeal. Although
the schedule in the Orient has not
been completed, the Wolverine nine
has a comfortable edge over their
various Nipponese opponents in games
won.
McNeal was the team's leading
pitcher in the Big Ten campaign last
season and after being graduated in
June he signed a contract with the
Cleveland Indians and was sent to
the three-I league to disband. long
before the expected conclusion of the
season, McNeal, although a profes-
sional, was allowed to participate in
the Japan trip, by agreement of the
teams.
Another player who was permitted
to compete by agreement was Art
Patchin, who performed very credit-
ably as pitcher for the freshman
team last season. The other men who
have been doing the hurling on the
trip are McKay and Tompkins, who
also plays in the outfield.

Carl Dougovito
Barely Misses
Olympic Place
Wins Way to Finals but
Loses in Extra Match;
Was Alternate
Carl Dougovito, Michigan's wrest-
ling captain last year, won his way
to the finals of the Olympic elimina-
tion and was finally chosen as alter-
nate for VanBidder of the Los An-
geles Athletic club who won the
world's title in the Olympics,
In the selection of the wrestler in
each weight, the Olympic committee
used a system of points, no man be-
ing out of the running until five
points had been scored against him,
Munoni, of Boston Athletic club,
defeated VanBidder in the 160-
pound semi-finals and wrestled Dou-
govito in the finals. Dougovito de-
feated Munoni in the finals and
thought he had won his berth on the
official team.
After his final bout, the Michigan
star was called into conference when
it was discovered that VanBidder
had only four points scored against
him. As long as this was true, he
had a chance to win first place. So
the officials ruled that Dougovito
would have to wrestle with him to
determine the champion of America.
So, thirty minutes after his finals
bout, Dougovito had to wrestle again.
At the opening of the bout he had
only three points scored against
him. VanBidder drew the decision,
which counted one point against him
for a total of five, and by losing the
decision Dougovito ran his total of
three up to six. VanBidder had an
easy time with his Olympic competi-
tion and won handily.
So Michigan's captain was chosen
as alternate, but missed out on the
Olympic title because of a series of
bad breaks.
