TRACK COACH Chuck Hoyt pro-
pounded one of the indisputable
truths of sport yesterday while dis-
cussing the Big Ten track meet, held
recently at Evanston. He said, "I've
been taking Michigan teams to big
meets for 11 years now. After we win
I come back to the dressing rooms af-
ter the meet and I can hardly get in.
I have to shove my way through," and
he gestured with his elbows, "to get
to the boys. The room is full of men
who are letting it be known that they
went to Michigan."
"It wasn't that way at Evanston
this year. I walked into the locker
room after the meet - there wasn't
any shouting and boasting by old
grads. There weren't any there -
just the team and trainers."
* * *
Hoyt added his name to the list of
those who support our campaign to
get more dual track mets and the Big
Ten meet here next year. He at-
tributed Evanston's apparently-per-
manent hold on the Conference meet
to th fact that no other school had
put in a serious bid for it in the last
seven years. Our job now seems to be
to make Athletic Director Fielding
H. Yost track-minded.
RE-HASHING the Conference meet,
Hoyt added his tribute to the
hundreds already written about Willis
Ward's work. Newspaper accounts
said Ward was running even with
Russell, Illinois, in the 100 when his
leg failed. "Why, Ken Doherty and
I were sitting in the stands across the
field during the race and we could see
from there that Ward was six feet
in the lead when the accident oc-
curred. He got away to a wonderful
start, off the blocks like lightning,
and was ready to snap into the final
sprint. I had already guessed that
he would do :09.5."
"One of the most moving sights I
have ever seen was the 'Big Boy' lean-
ing against that second hurdle in the
high's and watching Sandbach win
it. He really felt bad."
ONE of the most unusual members
of what Hoyt is already calling
his "cosmopolitan" track team for
next year has Choctaw Indian blood
in his veins. George W. Scott, Jr.,
'37Ed, hails from a reservation in
Stigler, Oklahoma. Scarcely five-
foot-six, Scotty talks with a cowboy
drawl and can sprint like the devil.
He held the state title in Oklahoma
with a :09.7 hundred and ran the cen-
tury in .10.3 yesterday, although he
has not been training.
Jolly Awards Numerals
To 6 Freshmen Golfers
Freshmen numerals were award-
ed to six yearling golfers, accord-
ing to an announcement made
yesterday by Coach Alex Jolly, last
year's Varsity captain. The team
has been well rounded this year,
Coach Jolly said, with Allan Saun-
ders of Coldwater the only really
outstanding performer.
The numeral winners were de-
cided in a 36-hole tournament
played over the week-end. The
following men turned in scores
which won them awards.
Allan Saunders, Coldwater 77-
George Waterman, Cleveland
83-82 - 165.
John Palmer, Grand Rapids 81-

Art Emerson, Highland Park,
Ill., 88-84 -172.
Fred Fehlmann, San Diego, Cal.,
84-84- 168.
Thomas Fisher, Anderson, Ind.,
81-84 - 165.
Bill xGriffiths of Detroit was to
have taken part in the tourna-
ment, but was forced to withdraw
when called home because of seri-
ous illness in the family. Coach
Jolly was undecided about Grif
fiths, but may give him an op-
portunity to compete for the
freshman award.

500-Mile Race

Team Will Choose
Valuable Player
Tilt Today


Louis Meyer, Winner
'28 And '33, Seeks
Third Triumph


The Michigan nine will embark on
its last road trip of the season today,
headed for Lansing where the Wol-
verines will engage Michigan State
this afternoon in a return game.
Michigan administered a 13-3 drub-
bing to the Spartans here, early in
the month, when Patchin confined
State to five hits.
Patchin will attempt to duplicate
his previous performance against
State today, as Coach Ray Fisher has
selected him to pitch the final road
game of the year. The husky right
hander has been a good hurler in non-
Conference games, and an excellent
relief pitcher, but he hasn't been very
fortunate as a starter against Big
Ten nines. He Aon two games, against
Michigan State and Michigan Nor,
mal, and lost a well-pitched contest
to Western State. He beat North-
western after relieving Tillotson in
the sixth. He holds victories by virtue
of relief work, over Michigan Normal,
and Toledo, but he hasn't won any of
his three Conference starts.
Opposing the Wolverines on the
mound will be Berg, the lanky right
hander with the free leg motion, who
;oes into numerous contortions be-
fore he delivers the ball.
Can Pass .500 Mark
If Michigan wins today, the team
will forge above the .500 mark, with
12 wins and 11 losses. In the Con-
ference, Michigan has won five games
while dropping six, and the final game
of the season Saturday, on Ferry
Field, against Iowa, will give the Wol-
verines an opportunity to close the
league-season's activities with a .5001
percentage. Never in the 13 years
that Coach Ray Fisher has been
coaching Michigan nines, has his
team finished below the .500 mark in
the Conference, and the boys are de-
termined their efforts will not pro-
vide the first time.
John Regeczi's hitting has been
the feature of the recent games. John
is one of those natural hitters who
swings from his heels. He misses
sometimes but he manages to connect
at least once in every game. His pow-
erful bat has placed him in a close
race with Petoskey for extra base
To Choose Mos't Valuable Man
After the State game today, the
Wolverines will meet. to select the
man, who in their opinion, has been
of the most value to the team.
In addition to the team vote, Coach
Fisher, the sports departments of the
Ann Arbor Daily News, and The
Michigan Daily, will also cost votes.
The player receiving three of the
four ballots will attain the honorary
position. The same procedure will
be observed in each of the Big Ten
schools, and a list of the ten names
will be submitted to each school. The
coaches will indicate their choice in
the order of preference, and the play-
er acquiring the most points will be
recognized the most valuable in the

"Wild Bill" Cummings is one of
the 33 most daring drivers in the
country who will compete today in the
22nd annual 500 mile automobile race
at Indianapolis. He and the rest of
the field will start the long grind at
10 a.m. and endeavor to replace Louis

Whether or not Michigan's co-eds
would like track included in their
physical education schedules was a
question bound to arise after the
results of the Field Day participation
last week became known. The two
track events, the 200-yard shuttle re-
lay and the obstacle race, proved the
most attractive of all the events
scheduled, according to the numbers
who entered them.
Although the obstacle race was
chiefly one of mere fun for the en-
trants, the 200-yard relay was really
a 50-yard dash, and as such was the
first introduction to track competi-
tion that the co-eds outside of the
Physical Education Major school have
Dr. Margaret Bell, who always gives
her heartiest support to any project
that the womeni
I of the campus
seem interested in
along the athletic
line, thinks it
would be a fine
thing to incor-
porate it into the
schedule, either
in Intramurals or
the class activ-
ities list.
"Track as an
DR. BELL activity has' been
on the women's schedule in the past,
but has been abandoned due to a
lack of interest. If, however, at the
present time the interest has been re-
vived, the women have only to show
enough interest in it to have it in-
cluded on the program of sports," Dr.
Bell said.
"Not only are the straight track
events usually popular," she con-
tinued, "but also the field events such
as javelin, discus, and baseball throw."
(She ought to know, she held the
world's record for this latter event
As a result of speculation con-
cerning the popularity of track and
whether it should be made one of the
regular sports, a poll will probably be
taken next fall when the new gym
classes are formed and select their ac-
tivities. Although the Michigan
schedule is one of the fullest and most
varied now among the colleges of the
country, the list would be complete
with the addition of track.

The vanguard of race-going throng
of more than 100,000 pushed into the
Hoosier capital today for the 22nd
annual 500-mile automobile classic at
the Indianapolis motor speedway.
Inside the huge racing plant west
of the city workmen washed an ac-
cumulation of oil from the brick
course and put the place in order
for the spectacle of speed.
At 10 a.m., (central- standard time)
tomorrow, Kelly Petillo of Los An-
geles, Calif., will roar over the starting
line in the pole position, leading a
field of 33 of the country's most dar-1
ing drivers.
Petillo Has Pole
Petillo won the pole with a record
119.329 miles an hour average in the
25-mile qualifying test. All the cars
surpassed the 100-mile-an-hour aver-
age required.
Back in the fifth row will be Louis
Meyer of South Gate, Calif., seeking
his third triumph in the blue-ribbon
event of American speedways. Meyer
received the checkered flag in 1928
and again in 1933, and is the only
former winner to start this year's
Fred Frame of Los Angeles, the
1931 winner, was the victim of a mis-
hap during his attempt to qualify
yesterday when his racer crashed
against a wall and could not be re-
paired in time for another try. Frame
and Al Thieson of Dayton, O., escaped
injury. Frame has two other speed-
sters in the starting field, however,
and can serve as a relief driver.
Varied Models Entered
Sixteen of the racers are powered
with four-cylinder engines, including
the two oil-burning cars entered; 15
have eight cylinders and two use 16-
cylinder power plants. Four are front-
wheel-drive creations; one is driven
fromi all four wheels and the others
are the convention rear-drive type.
For the first time, the drivers will
be limited to use of 45 gallons of gaso-
line during the race. Speedway offi-
cials believe this will eliminate some
of the excessive speed which has pro-
duced numerous accidents on the
course. A comparable restriction
placed on the qualifying trials, kept
the 16-cylinder, two-cycle-car entered
by the 'veteran Leon Duray i from
qualifying yesterday.
By motor, by air and on regular
and special trains the crowds poured
into the city today. Some jammed
hotels; others camped along road-
sides near the speedway.
Opening day line-ups of this
year's Pacific Coast league baseball
race revealed the names of but 25
players, outside of batterymen, who
were regulars with the eight teams
last- season.
Rainbow and speckled trout are
reported unusually plentiful in
streams of the Great Smoky Moun-
tain national park this season.

Varsity And Freshman
Net Awards Announced
Seven Varsity, three secondary,
and nine freshman tennis awards
for 1934 were announced yester-
day by Coach Johnny Johnstone.
Those who are receiving "M's"

merals. Cohen and Anderson are
transfers, the former being a
sophomore and the latter a junibr.
Cardinals And
Indians etain
Lea ue Leads
The Cleveland Indians stayed a
half game ahead of -the New York
Yankees, who were idle yesterday,
by virtue of a shutout victory over
Chicago, 5 to 0. Mel Harder pitched
the Indians to their fifth straight
victory by allowing the White Sox
only five hits.
In the National League the New
York Giants came within one per-
centage point of second place. The
veteran Adolphe Luque pitched su-
perb ball to defeat Brooklyn. 4 to 3.
The St. Louis Browns. led by Ray
Pepper, defeated the Detroit Tigers,
12 to 7. Pepper hit two homers and
three singles in five chances. Three

Inter-fraternity competition for the
year 1933-34 is over. Theta Chi re-
peated its success of last year by again
taking first place, and again Alpha
Lambda was second. The winner's
score this year is practically the same
as it was last year, and Alpha Kappa
Lambda scored about twenty points
less. Three first places in different
events and a lot of seconds and thirds
won for the champions. Their vic-
tories were in speedball, all fraternity
swimming meet, and class A basket-
Other victors in events are Psi Up-
silon in both dual swimming and
water polo, wrestling for Tau Delta
Phi, indoor track for Theta Xi, hand-
ball and foul throwing for Phi Beta
Delta, indoor relays for Alpha Kappa
Lambda, cross country for Phi Kappa
Psi, class "B" basketball for Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, volley ball for Delta
Alpha Epsilon, bowling for Delta Kap-
pa Epsilon, and baseball for Sigma Nu.
Tennis will be finished next week,
and the two finalists are Alpha Lamb-
da Kappa and Phi Kappa Psi. Horse-
shoes will be completed shortly, with
Phi Beta Delta and Alpha Kappa
Lambda fighting for that title. Sigma
Delta Psi competition is over, but all
the points scored haven't been added

of the "Big Ten," made up of Alpha
Omega, Phi Beta Delta, Tau Delta Phi,
and Tau Kappa Epsilon.
There has been competition among
the graduate fraternities entered in
the big race for the professional or-
ganization trophy, won last year by
Phi Lambda Kappa, the team that
won this year. Competition for that
minor award was very keen, espe-
cially between the winner and Alpha
Omega, who were leading most of the
race. The last few contests, namely
horseshoes, tennis, and baseball put
Alpha Omega out of the running. In
two of those contests, it was Phi
Lambda Kappa who did the putting
out. For a professional fraternity to
be in the first ten is quite an ac-
complishment, but to place third
among all the teams entered is quite
(a record.
Although the point score is not com-
pleted yet, the results cannot be
changed. If Alpha Kappa Lambda
wins all three events that are unde-
cided, they still will be in second
place, and the same with the positions
of all other teams still competing.
"Best Season," Says Riskey
"This season was a success," said
Earl Riskey, organizer of fraternity
competition and the man in (-.arge of
the Intramural publicity. "Although
we've had more teams compete be-
fore when there were more fraternities
on campus, more men actually played
in contests this year. Interest is grow-
ing every year, and more teams scored
points this year than ever before. It
has been the best season so far."
