KEN DOHERTY'S plea for javelin
prospects the other day brings
to mind the rather appalling fact
that since the fair days of Phil North-
rup in 1927, Michigan has gathered
but one point in the javelin event
in Conference meets. Doherty's ad-
vertisement, incidentally, was an-
swered by about a dozen prospects,
four of whom have already demon-
strated their ability to get off throws
of 150 feet or better.
The javelin was Doherty's favor-
ite eventin competition, and he be-
lieves that in a student body as large
as Michigan's there must certainly
be at least three who are capable of
200 feet. In that Doherty conforms
to the theory advanced by Lloyd Olds,
Michigan Normal coach, who claims
javelin material to be common al-
though for the most part attracted
According to Olds, "if baseball
were cut from the American sports
program we would have the world's
record holder in two or three years,"
disposing of the contention that jave-
lin prowess is restricted to the Finns.
The basis for Olds' claim is the simi-
larity between throwing the jave-
lin and a baseball, the same motions
being employed in both and a man
with a good baseball arm invariably
proving a good javelin prospect.
Doherty and Hoyt, the Michigan
coaches, favor what is known as the
American style in teaching the jave-
lin here, as contrasted to what is
known as the Finnish style, employed
by the Finns exclusively and by also
many competitors in this country.
Throwing the javelin, Doherty says,
embodies three distinct factors, the
whip of the arm, the position of body
and its use in the throw, andhthe
speed of the run. Since the whip of
the arm remains the same under any
condition, the difference between the
two styles is based upon the empha-
sis upon the other two factors.
1 The Finns emphasize speed in the
un, according to 'Doherty, while
the American style emphasizes plac-
ing the body in a position in which
the maximum use of its strength
may be obtained. To obtain that
maximum use, the Americans bring
the body into a position just before
the throw in which it is faced paral-
lel to the line of the throw in a
crouch, the same crouch which is
used by the shot putter before he
brings the weight of his body into the
Such a style necessitates a slowing
down of the run in approaching the
mark as the feet are moved into the
crouch position, all of which is elim-
inated by the Finns as they run at
high speed to the mark and let loose,
putting the body in a position facing
almost straight forward for the
Claims are made for the superior-
ity of both styles, but as in any other
event are difficult to prove as proof
rests wholly with individual perform-
ances. Individual performances be-
ing as difficult to compare as they
are it is a practical impossibility to
estimate the relative value of the
two styles, but a logical conclusion
seems to be that, accepting 'Olds' and
Doherty's contentions, either style
will produce a winner if he is proper-

Coach Hoyt Enters Three
Teams To Compete With
Ypsi In 440_Relay
The fastest program of the season
was indicated for the Alix benefit
track meet yesterday by Coach Chuck
Hoyt as he announced the entries.
With all track events above the 100-
yard dash cut down in distance times
will be cut proportionately, and the
fastest fields available from the Mich-
igan Varsity and freshman squads
and the Michigan State Normal team
will also be entered.
The feature event of the meet prom-
ises to be the 440-yard sprint relay
with four men each running 110
yards. Coach Hoyt has entered three
teams from the Michigan squad to
run against the Normal entry. The,
three Michigan teams have been
spread in strength in order to insure
The three teams will be composed
of Harvey Smith, Bob Osgood, Tony
Serakos and Willis Ward, against
Frank Aikens, Morceau Hunt, Haryey
Patton and Sam Stoller, and a team
of Paul Gorman, Howard Davidson,
Stan Birleson, and Fred Stiles.
Willis Ward, who will compete in
the high hurdles, hundred, high jump
and broad jump besides the relay, will
add another event to his repertoire as
he runs the low hurdles for the first
time outdoors this season.
Michigan Normal has entered se-
aral men in the weight events, Mich-
igan's weak departments, but Wolv-
erine entries will be expected to win
with the possible exception of the
shot put. In the discus Skip Etchells
and Mike Savage, with Martin Alex-
ander and Mel Silverman, will be
opposed by a Huronentry of McCor-
ry, Meiselman, Rockwell, Newman,
and Welever. In the javelin Adam
Stone and Bob Kositchek will oppose
McCorry, Rutkowski, Rockwell, and
Thetwo most outstanding Normal
performers in recent seasons, Bill
Zepp in the distances and Ray Lowry
in the pole vault, have also entered.
Zepp,holder of the Yost Field House
records at two miles, will face Walter
Stone, Rod Howell and Paul Pinker-
ton of Michigan in the mile and one-
half run, while Lowry, a National A.
A.U. junior champion, will take up
his rivalry with Dave Hunn, Mich-
igan's vaulting ace.
Other entries in the pole vault are
Nelson Droulard of Michigan, Haw-
thorne, Rutkowski, and Oliver, of
Another outstanding race is ex-
pected in the 350-yard dash in which
four Wolverines will attempt to settle
an intra-squad rivalry. Stan Birle-
son, Harvey Patton, T. K. Fischer,
and Tony Serakos will run for Mich-
igan while Baker and Miller will rep-
resent the Hurons.

Second Scrimmage Of
Spring To Be Today
Several groups of the spring
football squad ran through signals
yesterday under a hot sun in prep-
aration for the second of the sea-
son's scrimmages in the Stadium
at 4:15 p.m. today.
Coach Kipke has not decided on
any definite starting lineups, and
indicated that frequent substitu-
tions would be made, particularly
if the very hot weather should
A more definite division of the
squad into what would be rough-
"regular" and "reserves" will be
made Tuesday, Kipke said.

yesterday with the express purpose
of looking over Johnson. Wonder
what he thought of several Wolver-
incs who were also playing intthe ball
game? Coach Ockerman is the sec-
oid visiting coach to comment favor-
aaly upon the Wolverines. He sup-
}.plemented Coach Stewart's compli-
mentary remarks (Northwestern) by
stating that Michigan is a better team
than the vVolverines of last year, who
finished third in the Conference.

Michigan's baseball team meets'
Wisconsin in its fourth Big Ten en-
counter of the season at 2:30 p.m. at
Ferry Field today, with something like
a pitcher's battle between Berger
Larson, for the Wolverines, and John-
ny Tomek, for the visitors, expected.
Tomek, possessing a good fast ball
and curve, will be meeting the Wolv-
erines at peak hitting form judging
from the way Michigan has been club-
bing the ball in its last three games.
He will also be matching pitches with
a hurler who shut out the hard-hit-
ting Ohio State Buckeyes in his first
Conference appearance, letting them
down with two safeties, one of which
was rather scratchy.
Wisconsin comes here occupying
last place in the Big Ten standings
as the result of losing -two to Illinois,
chief contenders for the crown. Also,
like Northwestern, the Badgers pre-
ent tour of Micigan baseball col-
leges has not been favored, having
lost three games to Western State,
Michigan State, and Hillsdale.
Varsity handicap relay is planned for
this afternoon. Tickets for the bene-
fit meet were reported to be selling
fast by all members of the freshnan
Varsity squad who are conducting the
