Powerful Ohio State, Michigan


Teams Meet


Buckeyes Hold
Victories Over
Proposed Merging Of Twoj
Squads For West Coast
Meet Adds Interest
One of the strongest and best-bal-
a need in a series of powerful Mich-a
igan track teams will meet an Ohio
State team which includes some of
the most brilliant stars in the Western
Conference, in a dual meet tonightj
in Yost Field House.
The meet takes on added interest
with the announcement this week of
pending arrangements to merge the
two squads in June for a dual track1
meet with a combined squad from
Southern California and Stanford, to
be held at Los Angeles.
Both Have Clean Slates
Both teams have established fine
records in.indoor competition for the
season, the Buckeyes defeating In-
diana, 61x/% to 42%/2, and Illinois, 68
to 38, while the Wolverines have de-
feated Minnesota, 57 to 28, and won a
triangular meet with 741/2 points while
Michigan State was collecting 24%
and Michigan Normal 22 1/3. Mich-
igan will be out to duplicate its
score of last year in winning the
annual meet, 59 2/3 to 35 1/3.
The Buckeyes will present an ar-
ray of stars, however, whom observers
have predicted will gather sufficient
points to make the meet close.
Jesse Owens, fleet Ohio State soph-
omore, will be a favorite to win in the
dash from Sam Stoller, Willis Ward,
and Davey Barnes, of Michigan, and
will be a slight favorite in the 65-yard
low hurdles.
Hunn Will Press Wonsowitz
The Buckeyes will also be favored
in the pole vault, with John Won-
sowitz, who has been credited with a
vault of over 13 feet, 6 inches, but
Dave Hunn, the Wolverine junior, will
force the Buckeye star. Hunn has
vaulted 13 feet, 3 inches this winter,
3 inches better than Wonsowitz's best
mark of the current season.
With Willis Ward out of the high
jump, Melvin Walker of Ohio State
will be favored in that event. Walker
registered 6 feet, 4 inches against Il-
linois. The Buckeyes will also be fa-
vored for a win in the shot put, pre-
senting Neal and Schwartz, both of
whom have done over 43 feet.
Michigan will be strong in every flat
race above the dash, and superior
strength there combined with points
in the other track and field events
make the Wolverines favorites.
In the 440-yard dash Stan Birleson,
the Wolverine sophomore, will be sup-
ported by Harvey Patton, and will
meet Captain Cliff Smith, who has
been sffering slightly from a
wrenched tendon during the week,
and Ed Gazdik.
Ward Out For Record
The Wolverines will also be favored
in the half-mile, with Captain Harvey
Smith, Howard Davidson and Clayton
Brelsford out to score a slam over
Captain Cliff Smith, Don Reilly and
Moore, in the mile, with Brelsford
and Smith, and in the two-mile, with
Neree Alix, Walter Stone and Rod
Howell, competing in his first meet
this season.
The meet will be the final indoor
appearance at home of Captain Har-
vey Smith and Willis Ward, two of
the most brilliant stars in recent his-
tory, and both have announced in-
tentions to seek Field House records in
their favorite events.
Ward will attempt to crack his own
65-yard high hurdles mark of 8.2 sec-
onds, while Smith will be after the
half-mile record, now held by Abe
Rosenkrantz, of Michigan Normal at

Joseph Cambria, Baltimore business{
man who controls the Harrisburg
entry in the New York-Pennsylvania
baseball circuit, plans to hire none
other than Arthur (The Great) Shires
to manage the club this coming sea-
son, it was recently stated.

taken by Clare Randolph, 197-pound unknown from Indiana University.1
He seemed to have mysterious injuries from which he recovered whenever4
he was needed in a game.. .
It seems preposterous that he would quibble over being a stationaryI
guard, instead of center. in fact, his play last year was the epitome of
stationary-ness. That's probably why Randolph got the starting job.
Another likely factor in Bernard's decision to stay at Ford's is the con-;
tract he was offered with the Lions this year in comparison to that of a year!
ago. Last year he was a hero, the center of the great line that gave Michigan
a National Championship, himself a unanimous choice for All-American.'
His was the biggest ovation given any Lion when they were individually
presented to the fans for the first game.
Now his.fame has faded a bit, although his resignation was big enough
to make the front pages To the professional game's fans he is just another
former All-American who didn't make good in the ham and eggs circuit.
ANOTHER PROOF that fame is indeed fleeting: Dick Joslin who was
regarded as the fair-haired boy (no pun intended) of the basketball'
team in the early winter, and who is the only man to have played in every
game thus far this season, wasn't considered even good enough to make the
trip to Columbus with the team this week-end. And, believe me, that amounts
almost to an insult!
Some philanthropically inclined soda fountain could do big things for
Michigan's track team by offering Willis Ward a milk shake for every new
record he sets. In a special 70-yard high hurdles trial recently upon which
a "shake" depended, Ward was .clocked in :08.7, two-tenths of a second
over the existing world's record. I'll bet you a milk shake you can't break the
Field House record in the 65-yard high hurdles tonight, Willis!

Ohio Cenceded Two Events
In Conference meets to date this
season, Ohio State has defeated Pur-
due, while the Wolverines won easily
from Indiana in addition to their win
over the Hawkeyes.
Co-Captain Bob Renner and Ogden
Dalrymple, along with their unger-
studies, Bob Mowerson, Dick Blake,
and Ed Drew, will probably finish
behind Baker Bryant, Buckeye soph-
omore, in the 50- and 100-yard free-
style events, but Tex Robertson and
Frank Barnard should retaliate in the
220- and 440 with victories over Dex-

tance ace, who is swimming in his
first year of college competition.

The return of Neafus bolsters Mich-

vide stronger competition. In the 126-

start. Rubin, one of the three letter-
men on the team, started the season
as a 135-pounder, but when Capt.
Harrow was injured, grappled at 145-

make the weight, Gard Slocum will
start against the Buckeyes.
Wally Heavenrich will attempt to
complete a perfect season in the 135-

straight matches so far and is trying
for the eighth today. Capt. Harrod

Ohio State Fans Confident
Of Easy Victory ver
MichiganFive Tonight
Ohio State fans are looking forward
to a pleasant evening tonight when
their strong Buckeye quintet will close
an already-successful season against
Michigan's downtrodden "basketeers"
in the Buckeye Field House.
The Columbus clan regards Mich-
igan's cage team in the same light as-
the 1934 football team -easy pick-
ings - and there's nothing an Ohio
State crowd likes more than a victory
over the Wolverines.
With a share of second place in the
Conference standings as a reward for
victory, Coach Harold Olsen's five
will have an added incentive to close
the season with a win.
A 40-39 decision over Purdue heads
Ohio's record of seven wins and four
losses. Whitlinger, the Buckeyes star
forward caged 22 points in the game.
The scarlet quintet also holds two
wins over Chicago, two from North-
western and one each over Iowa and
Michigan, while it has dropped single
contests to Iowa and Purdue and two
to Illinois.
Curbing Whitlinger, fourth leading
scorer in the Conference with 127
points, will be Michigan's biggest
problem. Coach Cappon has designat-
ed Matt Patanelli, his best guarding
guard, to track the Scarlet flash, and
upon the swarthy guard's success rests
Michigan's slim hope of victory.
Earl Thomas, center, Red Wilson,
forward and Tippy Dye, guard, are
all dangerous men with a basketball
in their hands, each one\ being high
among the scoring leaders in the Big
Ten. Capt. Beitner completes the
regular lineup.
Wolverine supporters who saw the
Ohio State game here will remember
Dye as the speedy mite who broke
away from Rudness for baskets twice
in the overtime period to give his team
a 33-30 triumph.
Cappon's starting five will have Gee
at center, Tamagno and Evans, for-
wards, Rudness and Patanelli, guards,
with Teitelbaum, Meyers, Solomon
Oliver and Capt. Plummer getting in
as substitutes.
..After six bad years on the gridiron
the University of Idaho has selected
Ted Bank as their next coach. Bank
was an assistant coach at Tulane and
a former Michigan star.
