We Want A Meet.

THE 1934 BIG TEN track meet is
history, but right now, before in-
terest lags, we wish to announce our
campaign to have the 1935 outdoor
meet in Ann Arbor.
We know all the arguments in favor
of Evanston, where the meet has been.
held for the past seven years. (1.) It
is centially located so that cost of
transportation for athletes from the
ten schools is at the minimum. (2.) It
is located adjacent to a large center
which should furnish good crowds.
The first is obviously true, the
second may be true in theory but is
not so tr-ue in fact. Expense accounts
have been small --but so have gate
receipts. Neither Northwestern nor
Chicago have had good track teams
in recent years, consequently the an-
nual event has not caught the fancy
of the Chicago fans to any great ex-
Listen now to our reasons in favor
of Ann Arbor as the scene of the
1935 meet. (1.) Michigan fans are lit-
erally starved for a chance to see
their team in action against the best
in the Conference. They saw the boys
perform outdoors only once this year.
(2.) The eastern section of the Big
Ten is going to be the competitive
center for track next year. We say this
with due consideration for the rec-
ords turned in by Illinois and In-
diana in the meet just completed.
Ohio State will sweep into the po-
. sition of a title contender next year
with the capable services of a sensa-
tional freshman squad led by Jesse
Owens. Michigan, with Ward returned
to 1933 form and Sam Stoller leading
a great freshman squad in the battle
for Varsity places, will be seeking.to
regain the pinnacle from which she
toppled so far this year. With their
stars graduating, we give Illinois and
Indiana nothing better than third and
fourth next year. '(4) Ann Arbor
weather is better, in general, than
that of Evanston -a debatable point
to be sure. It was very warm there
Saturday-almost too warm. Often,
though, it is windy and cold.
Mr. Yost does not want the meet
for Michigan. T. Hawley Tapping,
Alumni secretary, and Coach Harry
Kipke both heartily approve of trying
to get it. Mr. Yost seems to have no
strong convictions either way but fears
a possible financial loss. We feel that a
financial loss is hardly possible. Added
expenses for transportation would be
balanced by increased gate receipts.
Customers come to athletic events to
see their school win. Michigan alumni
would hardly go wrong in coming
from Detroit and other cities to see
Michigan battle for another cham-
With Ohio prepared to make a
strong bid for her first title in years
a large crowd from across the south-
ern border could be expected - espe-
cially if the Buckeyes could hope to
grab that title from the Wolverines.
For eleven years Michigan track
teams have been at or near the top
of the Conference heap. For eleven
years they have gone away from home
to seek the title - and Michigan fans
have had to read about it in the
The largest gathering of women
for any sport event ever held on the
campus is promised for the Field
Day which will be held at Palmer
Field tomorrow afternoon. The Field
Day program is being held at honor
the women who have been most ac-
tive in athletics this year, and has
been made 'invitational. A group of
137, 6 from each house, haveubeen
invited to participate.
Under the direction of Miss Vir-
ginia Peasely and Margaret Arnold,
the program of six events has been
drawn up. These scheduled fea-

tures are tennis-bridge, golf pitch-
ing, an obstacle race, an archery
tournament, horseshoe pitching, and
a relay.
Golf pitching will be in the form of
pitching golf balls into bushel bas-
kets with a niblick. The obstacle race
will include hurdles, crawling through
barrels, and general splendid reduc-
ing exercises. The archery tourney
will be a miniature tournament.
It has not yet peen decided how
many girls will compose each relay
team, but the distance to be covered
by each individual will be 50 yards.
The program will start at 4:30 p.m.
The tennis-bridge will last through
until 5:30 p.m., when the doubles

May 21.- (Special) -The University
of Michigan golf team led the field,
by 26 strokes tonight at the end of
the first 36 holes of play for the Big
Ten title, largely through the efforts
of Chuck Kocsis, brilliant Wolverine
sophomore, who posted two cards of
66-70 for a 136 'stroke total over the
par 71 layout.1
Kocsis, Michigan State amateur
champion, cracked the course record
for amateurs by three strokes in his
sizzling morning round. Going out in
35 over the sun-baked, wind-tossed
course this morning, he breezed in
with a great 31. On the back nine
he scored six birdies with deadly
pitches and putts. He slipped a shot
over par only on the fourteenth, where
he overshot the green.

No more meets are scheduled for'
Coach Hoyt's men, and he stated yes-
terday that it was improbable that
Michigan would send any men to the
nationals which will be held this year

That's what the Wolverines were
on their last three-game road trip:
a slugging ball club with little else
besides hitting power. They outhit
Purdue 16 to 10, but lost 10 to 7.
They outhit Illinois 10 to 8 but lost1
7 to 6. They got 11 hits off Indiana's
brilliant southpaw, Wilshere, but lost
10 to 9. In the three games, 31 Mich-
igan base runners were stranded on
the base paths, and there lies one of
two main reasons for the three de-
The boys bobbled the ball around
for a total of 16 errors, some of which
were instrumental in each loss. And
so a good ball team and' a serious con-
tender for the Conference title was
erased as a title threat.
Western State Teachers have lost
only one game in the last two years,
a 3-2 decision to Wisconsin last week,
and they'll be after their fourth
straight victory over Michigan to-
day. The Hilltoppers took a 3-2 win
from the Wolverines last month at
Kalamazoo, in which Salter, the
Teachers' big Negro right fielder,
saved his team's record with tseveral
remarkable catches. Neuman, third
baseman, looks like the Teachers' best
hitter; in the last game between the
teams, he drove out three singles, ac-
counting for two of his team's three
runs. Lloyd Dietz, the Hilltoppers'
sophomore right hander, will pitch
against Michigan today.
Coach Ray Fisher has selected
"Whitey" Wistert as the Wolverine
hurler, although he has had only
two days rest since he pitched against
Illinois Saturday.
SEATTLE, May 21. --(/A) -- Holes-

here's no doubt--you're always well-
dressed in white" and the new crashy weaves
and rajah weaves in Palm Beach suitings have
plenty of eye appeal. Their tailored shapeliness
is evident in both the smart double-breasted
and the plain single-breasted models. They are
also shown in the popular by-swing, a sport
back type."
Retaining the eye appeal of Summer Suitings
means retaining their whiteness. Clothes will
not stay white when strong soap curds remain
in them after cleaning.
That's why we introduced MIcRoWHITE, a
soapless cleaning process that does not contain
any strong, harsh alkalis. With MIcROWHITE
we guarantee that your flannels and slacks will
retain their whiteness and nrot turn yellow no
matter how often you have them cleaned.
In addition to introducing MICROWHITE we,
of course, guarantee all summer suitings against
shrinkage in cleaning. Try this gentle thorough
process today-make any test or comparison
you like-we know you'll prefer MICROWHITE.
