Squad Of 12 Trackmen To Leave
Tonight For Drake Relays
Drills Be f ore
Hoyt Worried By Ward's
Condition; May Not Run
In 100-Yard Dash
A squad of 12 Wolverine track-
men will entrain tonight for Des
Moines, Ia., where they will open their
campaign for outdoor track honors
at the 25th annual Drake Relays.
The final practice before the meet,
held yesterday afternoon, was ham-
pered by the cold weather as have
all the drills this week. This had
caused Coach Charlie Hoyt consid-
erable worry due to the fact that it
has hindered his squad getting into
the best condition.
Ward Worries Hoyt
Along with this he is worried about
the condition of his principal threat,
Willis Ward. According to Hoyt,
Ward is "not coming along as well
as expected," which, if it is true, is
enough to cause any coach loss of
Hoyt indicated that, if the weath-
er is good, he may use Ward in the
high jump and 120-yard high hurdles
and confine his sprinting to the 440-
yard relay. He feels that Ward would
have a better chance of garnering
points in the hurdles than in the
100-yard dash, and in view of the
number of other events in which
he is entered competition in both
would be impossible.
Six Youngsters Entered
Of the 12 men entered, six are
competing at Drake for the first time.
Dave Hunn and Neree Alix are two
sophomores who delivered consist-
ently during the indoor season and
are expected to win valuable points
for the Wolverines. Widmer "Skip"
Etchells, -hailed as an outstanding
freshman last year, will open his
college career in the discus event.
Harvey Patton in the mile relay, Ed-
ward Stone in the javelin and Bob
Lamb in the sprint relay complete the
list making their debut in the annual
Others who have had previous ex-
perience at Des Moines are Capt. Tom
Ellerby, mile and 440-yard relays;
Harvey Smith, mile relay; Cass
Kemp, 440-relay; Ed Lemen, mile

Meet Of Year
None Of Singles, Doubles
Matches Extend Farther
By KEN PARKER
A squad of ten Michigan netters
held a field day at the expense of an
unpracticed Ypsilanti tennis team
yesterday afternoon, making a clean
sweep of all matches played and con-
sequently winning, 12 to 0.
It was the first meeting of the sea-
son for the Wolverines, and accord-
ing to the M.S.N.C. players, it was
Ypsilanti's first day out of doors.
Out of an aggregate of eight sin-
gles and four doubles matches played,
the performance of Joe Appelt in his
match with Wally Ward and in his
doubles match with Arnold and
Strait, in which he teamed with Don
Nichols, was outstanding. Appelt won
his singles match, 6-0, 6-0, and rode
through the doubles with Nichols by
the same score. Appelt was playing
excellent tennis throughout, was re-
laxed, had a free and easy stroke mo-
tion, and was putting the ball where
'he wanted it.
Diminutive Howard Kahn making
his first Varsity appearance for the
Wolverines put down Herman Strait
in what was probably the most col-
orful match of the day, 6-0, 6-2. The
gallery applauded Kahn for spectac-
ular stroking and for the apparent
ease with which he overcame the
handicap of small stature.
Seymour Siegel, Michigan's num-
ber one man, met the toughest op-
position the Normals had to offer in
Tony Sargenti. Sargenti, a left-
hander, had a hard and fast serve and
a lob which skimmed the net and
fairly dribbled along the ground, but
he did not have enough control to
put them to consistent use. Siegel
won the first set, 6-0, and after hold-
ing the lead, 5-2, in the second set
was extended to win, 7-5.
Dan Kean, colored newcomer, made
an auspicious start in his first Var-
sity match as a Michigan man, rac-
ing through Bob Arnold, 6-1, 6-2.
Kean's was the first singles match
Captain Clint Sandusky won his
match with C. Rubank, 6-1, 6-1. Bill
Bowles defeated J. Letts, 6-0, 6-1.
Milt Eskowitz downed George Perry,
6-0, 6-1. And "Baldy" Baldwin
romped over K. Kust, 6-1, 6-0.
Doubles results were as follows:
Baldwin and Durand defeated Letts
and Rubank, 6-1, 6-1. Siegel and
Kean defeated Sargenti and Ward,
10-8, 6-1. Appelt and Nichols de-
feated Arnold and Strait, 6-0, 6-0.
Bowles and Eskowitz defeated Kust
and Perry, 6-0, 6-0.
The weather was a trifle cold for
tennis. There was no wind of suf-
ficient strength to seriously bother
the players, however.
