By Large Margin Today;
Purple May Be Second
Michigan tracksters will engage
in their final meet before the Con-
ference Indoor Championship at Chi-
cago this afternoon. Coach Hoyt's
troup of 21 thinclads will compete
against Northwestern and Chicago
in a triangular meet.
The Wildcat runners, with T.N.T.
on their shirts, will provide the most
trouble, past records taken into con-
sideration. Michigan should have
little trouble in downing them, how-
How Fast Can They Run?
The Wolverines appear to have
point-winners in every event. The
big question evolves around the times
that the Michigan men will turn in.
A good indication of their chances
against Indiana next week should be
apparent from the results.
The Maize and Blue mile relay
team is of questionable ability, but
Coach Hoyt hopes it will be in form
for the meet. After winning their
race against Ohio and Illinois in the
A.A.U. meet and setting a new Field
-House record, they went into a slump

Coach Ed Lowrey of the pucksters

They take their hockey very very
seriously in such places. Lowrey says
he can remember substituting for a

felled by a well-aimed bottle. Dis-

Coach Is Noted
FORT WORTH, Tex., March 2-
When Ohio State University signed
Francis Albert Schmidt as head ath-
letic' coach, the Buckeyes obtained
the "miracle man" of Southwest
football and basketball; the man who
has the best record for winning in
this section; the man whose unique
personality and rare wizardry have
earned him the reputation of being
a genuine genius.
The big six-foot, 200-lbs. Dutch-
man is a dynamo awalking. His
rather sharp face, with prominent
nose and keen eyes, only hints at
the remarkable mental alertness and
nervous energy it masks. He is nev-
er quiet. Whether he's strumming
his mandolin or scrimmaging on the
gridiron, he is likely to have his coat
off, sleeves up, tie off and collar open,
sweating and going as if he were
Something like 98 per cent of the
46-year-old Nebraskan's energy goes
to athletics. At one time or another
he has played or coached all of the
major sports, many of the minor
ones, and retains a lively interest in
all. Football and basketball are his
favorites. He thinks, talks, eats and
sleeps them. Track interest is a
close third, and baseball fourth.

Along with the paraphenalia need-

the general hangers-on that each

that writer to detail the happenings
