Final Summary Of Teams Contesting
In Big Meet Shows Strength Of Each
Osgood, Davidson, Stoller,
Stiles, Walt Stone Lead
The Michigan track team, Big Ten
indoor title holders, open their final
drive for the outdoor crown today
boasting the best balanced team in
the Conference, carrying enough
strength to score in fourteen of the
fifteen events scheduled.
Almost as important as the Wol-
verkte team itself is the final ap-
pe rance of Willis Ward in the Mich-
igah uniform. One of the greatest
ai-around athletes in the history of
the school, Ward will be trying in the
next two days to wind up his career
by surpassing Jesse Owens, Ohio
State's "ebony antelope" in what is
probably the lastrrevival of their riv-
ally until the tryouts for the 1936
Ward will be entered in the 100-
yard dash, 120-yard high hurdles,
broad jump, and high jump. Ex-
perts pick him to win the hurdle
event and the high jump. It is
doubtful if he will be able to out-
run Owens in the dash and probable
that the Michigan star will place
behind the Buckeye flash in the
Made Large Scores
In the three preparatory dual meets
wi tBig Ten schools, the Wolverines
encountered only little competition
wInning all three by such topheavy
scores as 105 to 21 over Minnesota,
69 to 57 over Ohio State, and 81
to 45 over Illinois.
These meets demonstrated, as did
the indoor season, that consistent
performances in all events would win
tbe title for the Maize and Blue
a Md not any blaze of firsts, such as
a'e predicted for the high scoring
Oio State aggregation.
Leading the list of scorers is Cap-
tain Harvey Smith. Outstanding in
the half mileand mile events, Smith
i picked by some to beat the brilliant
oo'sier distance runner, Don Lash.
H*ward Davidson and Paul Gorman,
if=° he is in condition, should also win
points in the 880-yard run.
Dangerous In Hurdles
In the hurdles, the Wolverines pre-,
sent a dangerous combination. In
addition to Ward in the highs, will be
Bob Osgood, brilliant sophomore, who
J1 avored to come in second to Owens
in1 the lows. Moreau Hunt will not
be entered because of injuries.
,While weak in the sht put, Mich-
ig n carries enough weight in the
field events to garner a good margin
of points. Widmer Etchells, Mike
savage, Mel Silverman, and Marty
A exander should pick up places be-
tween them in the discus. Ed Stone
and Bob Kositchek make up the
javelin representatives. Dave Hunn
will be one of the members of the
three-way fight for first in the pole
vault., In the broad jump is Ward
and Sam Stoller while the great sen-
ior star and Moisio will be trying for
points in the high jump.
'In the distance races the Wolver-
ines boast a strong group. Smith
and Clayton Brelsford lead the milers
while Walt Stone and Rod Howell
represent Michigan in the two-mile.
Stiles, Aikens, Patton, and Birle-
son make up the relay team.

HE sentiments of thousands of
Michigan men on the eve of the
Conference track meet are echoed in
this letter to a member of the Mich-
igan squad from Neree Alix, still in
a California hospital recovering from
a broken leg incurred as the Wolver-
ines opened their outdoor season:
.... As you all realize, our team
this year has the reputation of
being the strongest team ever to
be assembled by one school in the
Big Ten. It is undefeated in
such competition; uphold that
record! As for the breaks, make
To get the utmost results of
such "breaks" and team strength,
you must all work as a unit. The
old saying of "all for one and one
for all" is just what I mean.
At the beginning of this year
we had some so-called "sopho-
mores," and they were good
"sophomores." But now, after a
season of competition as mem-
bers of such a team as this, you
are no longer "sophomores," but
seasoned, dependable veterans.
As such, your responsibilities are
greater and more is expected of
you. Take your rightful place
beside the "older" men with but
one thought in mind, "I'll do my
best for the team; I'll uphold the
trust they have placed in me."
To be individually recognized
for our achievements is the ambi-
tion of all of us. But what can
compare with that feeling that so
pleasantly goes up and down our
spines when we overhear our own
teammates say, "He sure did his
part, he's a real guy." To receive
this highest praise that a man
can be given; that from his fel-
low workers; should be our goal
in this meet. I hope you achieve
I can't tell you how much I
would like to be with our men. If
there is mental telepathy, you
will all be winners. Do your best
for the team, no matter how
much it hurts. Give your all and
give it willingly. My sincerest
wishes for success. We're all
proud of you.
