Wihen Greek
Meets Greek. . . .
THE lovely spring weather we have
been enjoying lately dropped the
proverbial nickel into the poetic
works of the sport editor and look
what happened! The opus below is
entitled. . . "A Contrast of the Mo-
tives of the Ancient and Modern
Greeks in their Celebrated Battles."
when greek met greek
in days of yore
it really meant
a fight
it sometimes wasn't
long befor'e
the battle-field
was splashed with gore
they fought from morn
till night
what was their pay
these warriors bold
from athens and from
sparta grim
fought they their fights
for yellow gold
or did each man
as i am told
fight for the gal
who smiled at him
question mark
i do believe
this latter view
greeks were not
again i kmight
point out to you
the chances for
the money due
were small because
the chances to
survive were
very chary
the modern greek
meets modern greek
confined within
the wrestling ring
what is it that
I tese moderns seek
fight they their fights
that maidens meek
their praises in
their songs might sing
question mark
think what you may
i dont think so
the modern greeks
are after dough
the greeks are after
what they want . .

W orkout s For
Big Ten Meet
Michigan's Varsity swimming team,.
having closed the Big Ten dual meet
season with their escutcheon unsul-
lied, this week are beginning inten-
sive preparation for the Conference
meet at Iowa City March 17.
Matt Mann has not yet definitely
'sclected the team that will leave for
the Buckeye stronghold next Thurs-
day, since he is giving several of the
swimmers a chance to turn in better
times in their events before making
the final selection of personnel.
Taylor Drysdale has proven to be

the sensation of the present season
among the Maize and Blue ranks.
Branching out from the backstroke
he has shown ability to take points
in the 440 and 220, swimming the
latter distance under Conference rec-
ord time in practice.
However, Mann has 220 men to
burn and will undoubtedly use Drys-
dale only in the backstroke and med-I
ley relay next week. The curly-head-
ed youth will have to wait until the
A.A.U.'s to show all his wares. 1
Mann has definitelyannounced
that he will take three divers to Iowa
City next week. Besides Degener and
Johnson, who he hopes will place
first and second, he is taking Frank
Fehsenfeld, sophomore, who will be
wearing the Maize and Blue for the
first time.
The Michigan mentor appears con-
siderably worried over Captain Cris-
ty's performances to date in the 440.
The big free style has done no better
than 5:04 in competition this year,
while in 1933 he broke five minutes:
on several occasions.

Perseverance Wins Out
According To WJ~restler
Here's perseverance!
Carroll Sweet, Varsity letterman
in golf last season, and a reserve
on Coach Cliff Keen's wrestling
squad was not included in the
squad personnel which left yes-
terday for the Big Ten wrestling
meet at Bloomington, Ind.
Going to Keen, Sweet asked the
coach if he could enter the meet
at 155 lbs., in which division thereI
was to be no Wolverine entrant.
Keen answered that although he
could not take any more than the
five which are traveling in Keen's
car to the meet, Sweet would be
entered if he furnished his own
Sweet left for Bloomington via
the thumb route a little after 6
am. yesterday_

Cottft rett ce

Eighteen Michigan tracksters will
leave here today for Chicago, Ill., in
'he hope of wresting the Big Ten in-
:loor track crown from Indiana, win-
aer for the last two years.
The Wolverines are conceded a
fairly good chance of regaining the
title they last held in 1931. Coach
Charlie Hoyt has one of his usual
well-balanced squads, besides the
versatile Willis Ward working in the
60-yard dash, 70-yard high hurdles,
and high jump. But Illinois, another
outfit picked to finish near the top,
has a number of capable perform-
ers who may cut into the Michigan
scoring column.
Indiana will depend on individual
stars, competing in more than one
event, to retain its crown. The great
competitors Fuqua and Hornbostel,
plus a brilliant sophomore Hobbs will
bear the brunt of the Hoosier bid.
Because the meet is likely to be
close and the final results will be
determined somewhat by the way in
which the coaches juggle their en-
tries, Coach Hoyt is waiting until the
last minute to name the events in
which each one of his performers
will appear. Men who are certain to
work and the events in which they
will compete definitely are:
60-yard dash -Willis Ward, Cass:
Kemp, Bob Lamb, Chester Barnes.
70-yard high hurdles - Ward and
Moreau Hunt.
440-yard dash - Dick Ellerby and
Harvey Patton.
8801Lyard run-Harvey Smith and
Paul Gorman.
Mile run -- Jack Childs.
Two-mile run -Neree Alix and
Rod Howell.
Mile relay -Kemp, Patton, Dick
Ellerby and Capt. Tom Ellerby.
High jump - Ward.
Pole vault - Dave Hunn .
Shot put - Al Blumenfeld and
Martin Alexander.
