New Stars Get
29 Points In
Big Ten Races
Ward Forfeits High Jump
Title To Save Heel For
Outdoor Competition
Holding a Big Ten track title for
the sixth consecutive year Michigan's
indoor championship team took a
light workout yesterday with an easy
week scheduledfor it as Coach Char-
lie Hoyt paid tribute to the sopho-
more stars who garnered 29 points of
the record-breaking total of 49
The showing of the eleven sopho-
mores was held by Michigan fans to
counterbalance the disappointment of
those who had hoped to see Willis
Ward, the greatest individual star in
Micigan's history, climax his indoor
career at the Big Ten meet.
Ward was able to collect but four
points and gave up his three titles
as he defaultedthe championship in
the high jump, ran third in the dash,
and finished fifth in the high hurdles.
Although the big star was timed at
6.2 seconds in the dash, he was unable
to catch Jesse Owens of Ohio State,
and Sam Stoller, his sophomore team-
mate, and in the high hurdles lost
his stride after hitting a barrier while
leading the field.
Ward did not enter the high jump
in order to favor his injured heel,
looking forward to the outdoor com-
petition which begins April 13 with
the trip to California for the meeting
at Berkeley with the University of
Bob Osgood led the sophomore stars
in their btilliant showing in winning
the high hurdles after Ward fell be-'
hind, and Clayton Brelsford furnished1
another sophomore win as he ran the
best, although not the fastest, race of
his career to finish ahead in the mile.
The all-sophomore relay team com-
posed of Fred Stiles, Fred Aikens, Bob
Osgood and Stan Birleson gave an-
other first, to go with the veteran
Konrad Moisio's unexpected victory'
in the high, jump.
Other sophomores finished above
their expected places as Sam Stoller
pressed Owens to his world's record
time in the dash, Walter Stone ran
fourth in the two-mile and Harry
O'Connell gave one of the pluckiest,
exhibitions of the meet in taking a
fifth in the mile.,
Stan Birleson was the only sopho-1
more who failed to live up to ex-
pectations as he was caught in a box
on the first turn in the 440-yard
finals and ran fifth.
Paul Phillips, a junior from Kenil-
worth, Ill., has been named alternate

Sherf Coach Eddie Lowrey
yesterday expressed approval of the
selections, except for the placing of
Edward Maki at goal.
"It is hard to understand why Maki
was honored in place of Jewell, in view
of Maki's poor performance in the
Michigan Tech series here," he said.
"Jewell is rated as one of the best
goalies Michigan ever had," he added,
indicating a better choice.
Maki in the Tech series here looked
bad, being especially easy to suck out
of the net. Michigan scored ten goals
in the two ganTes - seven in the
second of the two.
The selections follow:

Michigan Tech; defense, Spencer

the Assw'iated Press All-Confer-

During a season of wild and er-
ratic play, the Big Ten produced two
of the outstanding forwards in the
country - Bob Kessler of Purdu
and Bill Harlow of Chicago. Kessler
was the spearhead of the vaunted
Beilermaker attack, and was espe-
cially strong in the pinches. Har-
low proved that "you can't keep a

ference scoring race while playing
on the last place team.

Big Bill Tilden, the greatest show-
man in tennis today, will lead his ten-
nis circus in singles and doubles ex-
hibitions at 8:30 tomorrow night in
the Intramural sports building. Ad-
mission for students with pass books
will be 40 cents while the general
admission price will be one dollar.
None of the seats is reserved.
It is not known which two of the
players will play in the one singles
match but Coach John Johnstone be-
lieves that . a Tilden vs. Vines match
is the most probable. Johnstone also
picks Tilden and Nusslein to team to-
gether against Vines and Lott in
doubles. Lott is recognized as the
best doubles player in tennis.
Tilden will deliver a lecture on ten-
nis at 4 p.m. at the Natural Science
Auditorium. Admission to the lecture
is free and Coach Johnstone believes
that no student should miss this op-
portunity to hear the man whose in-
fluence has been the prime factor in
tennis' rapid increase in popularity.
The "Old Master" is a living argu-
ment in favor of professionalennis,
since he has done more for the ad-
vancement of the game with his exhi-
bitions, lectures, and books than any
amateur has ever done.

Stoller, incidentally, was picked by
a press-box observer as the "best
looking sprinter on the track" and
there were many predictions that he
would be taking Jesse Owen in the
short dash before the end of their
collegiate competition.
Michigan supporters were many in
the relatively small crowd, and Capt.
Harvey Smith was given the biggest
ovation -as he stepped to the front in
the presentation ceremony which
opened the finals. Tom Ellerby, cap-
tamn of last year's team, with Mrs.
Ellerby, flew down from Detroit for
the meet.
Harry O'Connell, the tiny sopho-
more miler, demonstrated again his
super-abundance of intestinal forti-
tude when he made the last ten yards
of his event in a stagger to take a
fifth place and give him his letter.
Jesse Owens was not at all hesitant
in expressing his dislike for the high
hurdles event. Although he qualified
in the fastest heat he was scratched
from the finals.
Jimmie Owen, the Iowa speedster,
revealed after the meet how close he
had come to entering Michigan.

though it will stand as a Field House
