Michigan's Varsity track team will
open the 1936 season Feb. 18 in Yost
Field House as the result of an an-
nouncement yesterday that the Mich-
igan A.A.U. third annual indoor relay
carnival has been definitely sched-
uled for that date in Ann Arbor.
The entire Michigan squad, Big
Ten champions indoors and outdoors,
will appear in the meet, which in-
cludes a program of individual and
relay events for university, college,
high school and amateur athletes.
Announcement that the meet will
again be held in Ann Arbor follows
attempts to stage the event in a larger
city as a consequence of financial dif-
ficulties met for the last two years
when the meet has been held here.
The meet annually attracts more
than 300 athletes from within and
outside the state. No team cham-
pionship is awarded..,
After Glenn Cunningham
Lloyd Olds, Michigan Normal
coach and chairman of the meet, has
announced that he will attempt to
bring performers from outside the
state for feature events, and that he
will make every effort to bring Glenn
Cunningham, America's foremost
miler, here for an exhibition run.
Efforts will also be made, he said,
to bring the University of Pittsburgh
mile relay team fora meeting with
Michigan' steam, champions of the
Big Ten and holders of the fastest
time ever run east of the Rockies.
The Wolverine team bested the Pitts-
burgh team in one of the most thrill-
ing races of the year in their only
meeting, at the Butler Relays.
Team Now Has Objective
With the season's opener definitely
set for Feb. 18, a Tuesday, Coach
Hoyt's team will be given an objec-
tive, although serious training has
continued sincesearly December.
Two time trials have been held
since the squad's return from Christ-
mas holidays, with middle distance
runners and milers showing to best
Times for yesterday's trials were
not released by Coach Hoyt, although
he announced "about" 52 seconds for
the quarter, won by Stan Birleson a
step ahead of Harvey Patton; "about"
2 minutes for the half mile, which
was won by Howard Davidson; and
"better than" 4:30 for the mile as
sophomore Ray Fink scored another
sensational win over Clayton Brels-
ford, Conference champion in the
Times Are 'Good'
Hurdles, sprints and two-mile times
were reported as "good" by Hoyt with
Moreau Hunt, Sam Stoller, Walter
Stone and Bill Staehle showing well.
The entire squad is reported by
Hoyt to be in good condition, Captain
Frank Aikens, Bob Osgood and Davey
Barnes have been behind the rest of
the squad due to pulled muscles and
a minor cold which have kept tem
from serious training.
Scheduling of the A.A.U. meet for
a Tuesday, to avoid conflict with oth-
er events, will give the Wolverines
two meets in their first week of com-
petition as a dual meet with Michi-
gan State has already been scheduled
for Feb. 21.

information that Louisiana State's
Glenn Hardin, the world record-hold-
er over the 400-meter hurdling route,
faces an uphill fight even to make
the trip to Berlin.
Muscular trouble in his legs has
beset Hardin for the better part of a
year, according to Bernie Moore, the
L.S.U. coach. In a letter to the
writer, Moore says:
"Hardin's future is very much in
doubt. He did not do well in the
Sugar Bowl meet. In my opinion,
he will have an awfully hard time
ever getting in shape again, due to
muscular trouble. He had quite a bit
of trouble last year.
Hard Task Ahead
"Even if he is able to make the
Olympic team, it will take a long
period of easy training to bring him
around. I do not believe that any

Hardin has been described as the
"perfect quarter-miler" by coaches.
He is rangy and has one of the longr

1932 Olympics he was runnerup to
Bob Tisdall, of Ireland, in the final
of the 400-meter hurdles, but was
credited with a new Olympic record of
52 seconds fiat because of a quirk in

Another obstacle in the way of rais-

The fighter on his feet is Joe Louis and the one on his back is Charley Retzlaff, the North Dakota
rancher-fighter and the picture was snapped just as the "Brown Bomber" scored a knockout one minute and
25 seconds after the start of their fight at the Chicago Stadium Friday night. Referee Bill Collins is
waving Joe to his corner before beginning the kayo count cn Retzlaff. Retzlaff, contrary to the procedure
of Louis' previous opponents, showed no fear of the Detroit sensation, but,/ perhaps because of this, he was one
cf the easiest victims. After Retzlaff had landed two blows, Louis turned on him savagely and floored him
with a barrage of shattering punches. It was Louis' 24th knockout in 27 professional fights.

Fendley A. Collins, Michigan State
College wrestling coach, said today
he will have to draft a lighter man
to fill the gap in the 175-pound divi-
sion of his wrestling team.
Whoever gets the assignment will
have to give away 10 pounds or more
to his opponents, and Collins said he
expected this would result in a num-
ber of lost matches for his team. He
added that State faces a hard sched-
ule with "not a setup." The season
opens Jan. 25 at Ann Arbor with
University of Michigan.
