Hoyt Names 28 Man Squad

To Compete

Seventeen Will
Make Debuts

Varsity Netmen And Baseball Team

In Title Event
Ward Is Entered In Four
Events As Stoller And
Stiles Run In Three
Eckert Withdrawn
Harvey Patton To Replace
Osgood, Hurdle Star, On
Mile RelayTeam
Coach Charlie Hoyt named 28 men
yesterday, only 11 of whom had ever
run in an outdoor title meet before,
who will make up the Michigan squad
in the Big Ten track meet Friday and
Saturday. The Wolverine team will
probably be the largest in the Ferry
Field stadium.
The group includes: Captain Har-
vey Smith, Clayton Brelsford, Willis
Ward. Bob Osgood, Dave Hunn, Sam
Stoller, Harry O'Connell, Paul Pinker-
ton, Harvey Patton, Stan Birleson
Fred Stiles, Moreau Hunt, Tom
Fisher, Tony Serakos, Walt Stone,
Fred Aikens, Rod Howell, Howard Da-
vidson, Martin Alexander, Widmer
Etchells, Mike Kositchek, Mel Silver-
man, Ed Stone, Konrad Moisio, Win-
ston Moore, Ed. De Vine, Mike Sav-
age and Nelson Droulard.
Ward In Four Evcnts
Ward, back in condition again,
leads the entry list by being sched-
uled to compete in four events, 100-
yard dash, 120-yard high hurdles,
broad jump, and high jump. Sam
Stollerhand Fred Stiles are second
with three. Both will run in the
dashes, with Stoller in the broad
-jump for his third event and Stiles
counted on to help in the mile re-
The relay quartet was also named
by Hoyt. Because of the withdrawal
of Bob Osgood from the event, the
Wolverine mentor was, forced to add
a new man to the team which won
the race indoors. Osgood was re-
placed because the low hurdles finals
immediately precede the relay on
Saturday's schedule. In his place will
be Harvey Patton, diminutive 440
ace. The others are Birleson, Stiles,
Aikens, and Davidson as alternate.
Simplifies 440 Problem
Vern Eckert, who had been counted
on to score for Illinois, will not run
because of an injury. Eckert was
second in the 220 and fourth in the
100 last year and won third in the
quarter in the indoor meet this sea-
son. His withdrawal helps to simplify
a badly muddled 440 for too many
men have turned in performances
around the 49 second mark.
Duane Purvis, who was injured dur-
ing practice for the East-West game
during Christmas vacation, is the
only other star who is known to be
troubled enough by injuries to keep
him from competing. It is not defi-
nitely known whether his shoulder
is knit sufficiently to allow him to
throw the javelin, in which he is
picked to score.
Coaches And
Directors Hold
Annual Me e t
Big Ten athletic directors and
coaches will hold their annual meet-
ing here tomorrow morning and eve-
ning at the Michigan Union. Faculty
representatives and athletic directors
will split up and hold separate meet-
ings at 9 a.m. at which will be decid-
ed the Conference schedules for 1937
and 1938. The track coaches meet
at 10 a.m. and hold their annual din-
ner Friday night.
Local interest at the meeting will

center around Michigan's intersec-
tional schedule after 1936. Contracts
with Pennsylvania and Columbia who
will be met in 1935 and 1936 expire
after that year and there is some un-
certainty as to whether the Wolver-
ines will continue playing two inter-
sectional games after that date. Un-
der the old plan Michigan played
six Big Ten games during the regular
season and since Michigan State has
been a fixture on the Wolverine
schedule, room was left for only one
game with a team hailing from an-
other section.
Games which Michigan will defi-
nitely play in these years are with its
traditional rival, Ohio State, Illinois,
Michigan State and the "Little Brown
Jug" game with Minnesota. The
Wolverines' 1935 and 1936 cards are
already completed.
At 9 a.m. today about 40 of the
representatives will tee off at the
University Course in an open tourna-
ment which will last until 3 p.m.
when the golf match between Johnny
Fischer nd Chuck Koesis on on



TODAY'S ESSAY is devoted to some
attention to the arts of the track
dopester, being gleaned especially
from some remarks of Phil Diamond,
dean of the local body, with regard
to the Big Ten Track and Field Meet.
As a major premise, contention for
the team title Saturday will be waged
between Michigan and Ohio State ac-
cording to the concensus of dope;
sheets, with the Wolverines favored
by a slight edge. In one of the most
precarious prognostications of the
spring season, Michigan is given that
edge on the basis of possible per-,
formances while Ohio State's score
is the result of a concession of five
or six firsts and possible showings for
the remainder. And because the
strength and balance of the Michigan
team exceeds that of anything ap-
parent, its minimum possibilities
mount faster than the conceded wins
and possible placings of the Buck-
To elaborate upon that bit of ab-
stract hypothesis, Owens with the
hundred, 220-yard dash, low hurdles
and broad jump spots the Buckeyes
20 points, and Charlie Beetham in
the half gives another first. George
Neal, who has recorded the best shot
put of the season may be given an-
other first. But counting all possible
showings in other events most opti-
mistically, the dopesters refuse to
give the Buckeyes more than 20 points
on top of that 30.
Michigan, on the other hand, is not
given an outright concession in any
event, with the exception of the high
hurdles in which Ward and Osgood
are given a better than outside chance
to place one-two. But without firsts,
the Wolverine powerhouse is given a
maximum total of 60 points because
of the consistent showing of the team.
In other words, Michigan's entire
squad may be expected to be consis-
tently good on its season's showings.
If the competition is hot, Michigan
may possibly be shoved down. If the
competition is not so hot, Michigan's
consistent strength may logically be
expected to raise the point total. But
under any conditions, it is expected
that Michigan will show well, and it is
because the dopesters can rely on
that that the Wolverines are today's
"Dopesters' Friends."
"If's" of course are the boon com-
panion of the dopester, and this year
has provided its share, the question
marks being especially important at
the moment as they have direct bear-
ing on the final results. Willis Ward
was installed at the beginning of the
Conference outdoor season as the big-
gest enigma, but his recent showings
have tended to eliminate that.
Today the biggest question mark is
the Iowa team, which holds the key
to the entire situation with its bevy
of stars in the hundred through the
quarter-mile. As Chuck Hoyt re-
marks, "We'd be in if they wrecked
that crew on the way up here." Added
to its key-nature has been rumors
of squad disssension which kept some
of the members out for a period, but
,the latest information seems to indi-
cate that the Hawkeyes will be here
in force.
Another "If" and one which is
paramount, is the weather, and it is
perhaps the most important. 'They
all look alike in the rain."
One of the most colorful figures in
football is in Ann Arbor for the re-
mainder of the week, Bob Zuppke
of Illinois. Not so restless as he is
in the fall, Zup spent yesterday after-
noon in golf with Fielding H. Yost,
who is also a colorful figure. They
reported an even match.
Announcement of the scheduling of
one of Michigan's intersectional grid
opponents for 1937-38 will probably
be made today, it was revealed yes-
terday. Director Yost has been ne-
gotiating with several eastern schools
for the engagement, among whom are
presumably Columbia and Pennsly-
vania, 1935-36 opponents.

Double Header Split
Contrary to original plans which
called for two games in the, after-
noon, Saturday's double-header at
Madison will be split into morning
and afternoon games. Wisconsin,
winner of only two games this year,
will probably use Pearson and Tomek
against the Wolverines. Tomek is
the star of the staff, having won
five games this year, including both
of the Badgers' Conference victories.
Although Michigan is definitely out
of the championship battle, the Var-
sity can lift itself a great deal nearer
the top by wins in the three remain-
ing Big Ten games, especially since
both Illinois and Chicago were beaten
Tuesday. Illinois finished its season
by losing to Purdue, 5-2, and is at
the top with seven wins and three
