To Defend Team Title At Butler Relays Saturday

- <i) -° -_

Hoyt To Take
Three Strong
Relay Teams
5 Individual Stars Also To
Go; Ward To Enter High
Hurdles Only
Although the thoughts of the Mich-
igan track squad are for the opening
of the outdoor season and the Cali-
fornia meet at Berkeley April 13, the
immediate attention of Coach Charlie
Hoyt is directed toward the defene
of the team title in the Butler Relays
Hoyt yesterday announced the per-
sonnel of the squad from which 16
men would be picked for the meet.
Five individual entries and a mile,'
two-mile and four-mile relay team
will be sent.
Ward In 60-Yard High Hurdles
Willis Ward, who last year practic-
ally won the team title alone for the
Wolverines, with wins in the dash,
high jump, and a second in the high
hurdles, will again lead the squad.
Ward will only enter the 60-yard high
hurdles event in which he will meet
Ken Sanbach of Purdue, who nosed
him out last year in record time.
A four-mile relay team represent-
ing Michigan will be conceded an ex-
cellent chance of placing, led by Cap-
tain Harvey Smith, who has done
4:21.8 in the mile this year. Clayton
Brelsford, who has been timed at
4:23.4 and Neree Alix, the two-miler
who is expected to do as well as 4:23,
will also run.
The fourth place will go to Har'y
O'Connell, Walter Stone or Paul
Pinkerton. Pinkerton and Stone will
run this week, and if one proves him-
self capable of a 4:30 mile or better,
he will run, in which case O'Connell
will run on the two-mile team.
The two-mile team will be headed
by Howard Davidson, and will receive
support from Paul Gorman and Frank
Aikens. Should O'Connell run on the
four-mile team the fourth place will
probably be between T. K. Fisher and
Ed Devine.
Stoller, Hunn, Moisio Entered
The mile relay team, Conference
champions, will be composed of Stan
Birleson, Harvey Patton, Fred Stiles
and Bob Osgood. Osgood will also
run in the high hurdles.
The other individual entries will be
Sam Stoller, who pushed Jesse Owens
of Ohio State to a new world's record
in the Conference dash, in the 60-
yard dash, Dave Hunn in the pole
vault, and Konrad .Moisio, Conference
high jump champion, in the high
The Butler Relays annually attract
the outstanding track talent of the
country, and principally because of
the handsome awards which are giv-
en in all events. Michigan will be at-
tempting to bring back a second team
trophy, an actual-sized gold track
shoe, mounted on a large base.
Favorites Win
In All-Camnus
Tennis Meet
The all-campus tennis tournament
has reached the semi-final round with
only the pre-tourney favorites re-
maining in competition.
In the quarter-finals, played last
week, John Rodriguez defeated Bob
Edmonds, 6-3, 6-2; Jarvis Dean
downed Al Kasabach in a hard-fought
match by the score of 8-6, 6-3; Ted
Thorward won over Cy Elkes 6-1, 6-1;
and Bob Anderson won his way to the
semi-finals by a default.
Rodriguez is scheduled to meet
Dean, and Anderson will face Thor-

ward. The final match will be played
on the Intramural courts during the
annual Open House. Wednesday.
Eleven entries have been received
for the annual faculty squash tourna-
ment, soon to start at the Intramural
courts. Prof. Robert Angell of the
sociology department is favored to
win the tourney, with Prof. Arthur
Boak of the history department offer-
ing the strongest opposition.
The archery squad, which placed
second to Purdue at the last Big Ten
archery meet, will give an exhibi-
tion of the sport at Intramural Open
House Wednesday night.
Two men will be in Squash Court 11
at 15 minute intervals, starting at
7 p.m., showing the fine points of
the game. During the intervening
periods the golf team will give an ex-
hibition of golf in the same court.
The men who will compete are John
Hayes and R. F. Hayes from 7 to
7:15 p.m., Horace Nixon and W. Mor-
ris from 7:45 to 8 p.m., Ralph Bald-
win and an unannounced partner
from 8:15 to 8:30 p.m., and Carl
Adams and Horace Nixon from 8:45
to 9 n m.

Class A Team To. Oppose
Winner Of Kappa Nu,
Alpha Omega Game
Five of the six finalists in the
intramural basketball tournaments
were decided last night, and the only
remaining quarter-final game was
played to determine who would meet
Kappa Nu tonight at 6:00 in the Class
A divisign semi-final contest. The
finals will be played Wednesday night
at the Open House.
Beta Theta Pi played an outstand-
ing part in both class A and B divi-
sions of the Interfraternity tourney,
winning a position in the finals of
both. The class A team defeated Alpha
Delta Phi by the decisive score of 20
to 5. Led by "Steck" McCollum, the
Betas did most of their scoring in the
last half. Dana Seeley made all of
the losers' points.
In the other class A game, Alpha

tonight. The game was as close as
