The meet, between teams consid-
ered representative of the Middle West
and West Coast, is expected to be one
of the feature events of the season.
The Wolverines, after sweeping the
indoor season, have had less than a
week of outdoor practice as against
outdoor work for the Bears which
has included four meets.
Michigan, with balance as well as
power in every event, is conceded a
likely chance of winning from the
powerful California team despite the
handicaps of training conditions.
Hope To Split Bear Strength
The Wolverines will hope to split
the California strength in the short
track events, collect some points in
the weight events, and pile up points
