Willis Ward Is

D~istance I Fvoi te


In Top Shape
For Last Meet
Gorman And Hunt May Be
Forced To Watch Meet
From Stands.
With only two more days before
the opening of the Big Ten track
meet, Coach Chuck Hoyt has been
letting the Michigan team taper off
that it may be in perfect condition
for its bid to regain the title that it'
lost to the well balanced Illinois
squad of 1934.
Willis Ward showed himself to be
back in. shape again adding to his
fine Monday's performance another
encouraging workout yesterday. He
took the hurdles easily and cleared
the bar in the high jump at 5 feet
10 inches with the form that made
him one of the outstanding jumpers
in the country.
The complete recovery of the Wol-
verine star makes the hosts definite
favorites to win over the high scor-
ing Ohio State team lead by the rec-
ord-breaking Jesse Owens.
Gorman, Hunt Out
Only two members of the Michigan
squad originally scheduled to run are
doubtful starters. Paul Gorman, suf-
fering from a severe cold, and Moreau
Hunt, who was injured on a hurdle
at the Illinois meet last week, may
be in the stands when the title events
Gorman, who had turned in a fast
half mile in 1:55.7, was counted on
to score in his race, and Hunt was
also on the dope sheets to place in
the hurdles. His improvement in the
last weeks had brought him up among
the leaders.
Captain Harvey Smith, who after
a successful indoor season had slowed
up outdoors, has fully recovered the
form that he showed in the Yost Field
House and will be an outstanding
threat in the mile and 880-yard run.
Many experts pick him to finish
ahead of Lash in the longer event.
Qualifying Heats Today
The meet will open at 3 p.m. Fri-
day and qualifying heats in the 120-
yard high hurdle, 100-yard dash, 440-
yard run, half mile run, shot put,
discus throw, running broad jump,
and the javelin throw will be run
off that day. The Friday schedule
should end about 4:45 p.m.
The saturday program will open at
1:45 p.m. when the-pole vault begins,
and will continue until about 4:30
p.m. when the ceremony for the win-
ning team will close the meet.

Don Lash, Indiana distance star
and one of the large number of stars
here for the Big Ten meet Friday
and Saturday, will be the outstand-
ing favorite to win the two-mile title.

Chuck Hoyt and Ken Doherty, re-
sponsible for the success of the Big
Ten Track meet, have taken to step-
ping off curbs with their left foot,
refusing to look at the moon through
screen doors and many other devices
of their own and traditional origin,
and have issued a blanket request
that residents of Southeastern Mich-
igan refrain from washing their cars
for the remainder of the week all with
the hope of keeping rain away for
Friday and Saturday.
Having done everything humanly
possible to insure a great success for
the meet, they are now resorting
to exhortations of the gods that they
The most recent device toward in-
suringsthe unqualified success of the
meet is the installation of an anemo-
meter, to measure wind velocities in
order that any claims to world's rec-
ords may officially be made. Official
rules for the acceptance of record
claims declare such claims in the
sprints and broad jump will be in-
validated by the presence of a tail-
wind greater than three miles per
hour, and suggest the installation of
an anemometer to record existing
wind conditions.
Track conditions were pronounced
j almost perfect yesterday by Coach
Hoyt and Lorenzo Thomas, who has
charge of the field. The cinder track
has been watered and rolled daily
and is now considered to be as fast as
any track in the Middle West, and
one of the fastest in the country.
Although the broad jump pit has
been moved to a place directly in front
of the stands, abandoning the cinder
runway for a grass runway, athletes
and observers here say that the dif-
ference in jumping conditions would
be negligible.
Harvey Patton, Michigan's diminu-
tive quater-miler, is bearing a red
welt on his neck this week as a re-
sult of winnng his event against Illi-
nois Saturday. The tape, which
would have been chest-high for Stan
Birleson, caught the half-pint Pat-
ton on the neck. "I thought it was
a clothes-line," he says, "but I would
just as soon hit it first Saturday if
it's wire."

Fielding H. Yost, director of athlet-
ics, is a hearty supporter of the chain-
letter. Without having signed his
name to one, "The Old Man" has
already received two grimy dollar
bills by mail. Assistant Director Cap-
pon is not such a hearty supporter;
after something like a week he has
just disposed of his and has had no
glimmer of any return.
Michigan Track Team
After Fourteenth Win
The Michigan track team will be
trying for its fourteenth Western
Conference outdoor champion-
ships in the annual meet at Ferry
Field Friday and Saturday.
Although they have competed
in only 23 of the 34 outdoor meets
which have been held to date, the
Wolverines have finished on top
13 times. Michigan was out of
the Conference from 1906 to 1913.
Two years ago Michigan won the
meet by a wide margin although
taking only two first places. In-
diana scored eight firsts but fin-
ished a poor second in the tehm

All Seats For Track
Meet To lBe Reserved
Business Manager Harry Tillotson
yesterday repeated his announcement
with regard to tickets for the Big
Ten track meet, to be held Friday
and Saturday at Ferry Field.
All tickets for the field events Sat-
urday are to be reserved, Tillotson
said, with the best seats to holders
of the $1.10 tickets, which hold good
for both days.
General admission Friday will be
40 cents, and reserved seats in less
favorable sections of the stands will
be sold at the same price to students
with athletic coupon books for the
Saturday events.
Meyers Will
Pitch Against
Western State

Varsity baseball coach, Ray Fish-
er, will probably start Earl Meyers as
pitcher against the powerful Western
State Teachers College nine at Kala-
mazoo tomorrow. This will be Mey-
ers' first start in intercollegiate com-
The Varsity will leave at 11 a.m. to-
morrow for Kalamazoo. After meet-
ing the Teachers the Wolverines will
move on to Evanston where North-
western will be played on Friday.
Fisher has indicated that he would
start John Gee against the wildcats
who were trounced by Michigan in
their last meeting.
From Northwestern the nine will
travel to Madison to tackle Wisconsin
in a double-header. The two big
guns of the Wolverine staff will be
thrown against the Badgers in the
persons of Berger Larson and Art
Yesterday the team worked out
against Benny Oosterbaan's fresh-
man squad. Larson and Patchin
divided the pitching duties and easily
held the first year men in check. The
regulars unleashed a batting attack
which had the freshman fielders
chasing the ball to all corners of the
field and which led Fisher to remark
that more runs were being scored in
the practice than had come across
the plate all season.

als had been awarded to 24 men.

M, bhian Steamroller Runs
Over Conference Golf Field

Not only did Michigan successfully
defend its Big Ten golf title over the
Killdeer Country Club course Mon-'
day and Tuesday, but the Wolver-
ines set some sort of a record in so
doing that is likely to stand for some
time to come.
Every school in the Western Con-
ference was represented in the Evans-
ton meet, which means that the 40
best golfers in the Big Ten were at-
tempting to stop Michigan and the
members of the Michigan team from
repeating their victory of the last
three years. In the face of this tre-
mendous pressure, the Wolverines
made a show of the field as they fin-
ished with a record low score of 1163
strokes, just 60 shots better than their
nearest rival, Northwestern.
In fact when the Michigan golf
team left Evanston after the conclu-
sion of the meet, the only thing they
left for the thirty-six golfers of the
nine other teams was fourth place
in the individual scoring. Bill Flynn
of Northwestern just managed to get
Johnny Fischer first, 281; Chuck
Kocsis second, 284; Woody Malloy
third, 297; and Allan Saunders fifth,
301, is a list of individual scores that
looks a good deal more like the final
results of the National Open than the
scores of one team in a college golf
Not only did it mark the third time
that Fischer has won the title, a rec-
ord that needs little comment, but
it also was the second year in suc-
cession that Michigan has placed one-
two in the low medal scoring.
Fischer won the title as a sopho-
more and as a junior, and when he
failed to defend it last year due to his,
Walker Cup sojourn in England,

Chuck Kocsis had little difficulty in
annexing it. Woody Malloy, who fin-
ished third this year, was second to
Kocsis in 1934.
Of the seven medals that the Con-
ference yearly offers to competitors
in the Big Ten meet, Michigan left
not a one, taking the entire seven
for the third consecutive year, and
making an almost unapproachable
four-year record of 27 out of a pos-
sible 28 medals.
Fischer walked off with three med-
als this year; one for low medalist,
one for low individualist, and the
third for being a member of the
championship team. Kocsis got two
medals; one for second low individ-
ualist, and one for being on the win-
ning team, and Woody Malloy and Al
Saunders both got one medal each for
membership on the title team.
Fischer's rounds of 69, 70, 73, 69 for
a total of 281 broke by two strokes
the existing 72 hole medal record for
the Conference meet which Chuck
Kocsis set last year.
Fifty-two thoroughbreds, headed by
Omaha, have been nominated for the
Detroit Derby to be run June 15.
Colleges which recently have taken
up rowing are Dartmouth, Rutgers,
Marietta, Rollins, Canisius, St. John's
of Annapolis, and Manhattan.
