Indiana Stands
In Victory Path
Of Wolverines
Bob Osgood Will Not Run;
Owens May Be Back To
Bolster Ohio State
Having met and conquered Indi-
ana's thinclads twice this season when,
the Hoosiers were favored to win,
Michigan's track team tomorrow will
again find Coach Billy Hayes' men
standing in the way of a victory when
it defends its Butler Relays crown.
The team will leave this afternoon for
Coach Chuck Hoyt stated last night
that Bob Osgood, star hurdler, will
not be entered in the meet due to
his leg injury but that Ben Starr has
recovered sufficiently to compete. As
a result it will be a 19-man squad,
that seeks Michigan third successive
Butler title.
Ohio State Is Dark Horse
Ohio State has the dark horse role
this week because of the unknown
academic status of Jesse Owens. The
Buckeye examinations have just end-
ed and Owens' standing will be an-
nounced today. If he is eligible Ohio
may take the meet, especially with
Osgood out of both hurdle races.
The Wolverines are favored in the
one-mile and four-mile relays but in
the latter may be weakened due to
illness to Ray Fink. The stellar
sophomore miler has been suffering
with a cold this week and has not
worked out, but hopes to be in shape
to run tomorrow.
Armour Relays Detracting
A total of 21 schools have entered
the meet, and 299 individuals are
expected to compete. The holding of
the Armour Relays in Chicago this
week-end has detracted attention
from the Butler event with a number
of Big Ten teams entering this meet.
Besides Michigan, Indiana and
Ohio State, Notre Dame's powerful
Central Intercollegiate champion-
ship team stands out in the role of
favorite.., The Irish boast of great
strength in the shot put and Don
Elser is expected to set a new Relays
mark for the event.
Coach Hoyt is not overly optimistic
over his team's chances in the meet,
realizing that the squad was at its
indoor peak last week when it cap-
tured the Western Conference title.
The Wolverines have not been de-
feated yet this season, however, and
still have a good chance of adding
another win to their record.
Ten Bouts On
Armory Fight
The first bout of a ten-bout ama-
teur boxing show will begin at 8:15
p.m. tonight in the Armory. The
customary Wednesday night show has
been shifted this week to this evening
for the convenience of the fans who
attended the Intramural Open House.
A five-round featherweight contest
between Tommy Morris, a well-known
Detroit fighter, and Ed Scott, local
Golden Glove champion, will feature
the card. The two boys have had one
previous encounter in which Scott
emerged victorious after a hard scrap.
The win was considered by some as a
fluke, and Scott hopes to prove them
to be wrong.
Morris has an excellent record, hav-
ing won the Detroit Times Silver Belt
title and the Detroit Golden Gloves
title. After these two victories, Mor-
ris proceeded to enter the Chicago

Tournament of Champions in which
he was not eliminated until the semi-
final round.
A number of other Golden Glove
champions will be presented on the
card, Don Stevenson, open welter-
weight, Bobby DeMarco, novice fea-
therweight, Ralph Holbrook, novice
middleweight, and Red Underhill,
South Lyon novice welterweight.

Alleycats, Psi U's
Dominate All-Star
Hockey Selections
The customary all-star Intramural:
hockey team has been announced by!
Bert Smith, head of the Intramural
Hockey League, who in collaboration
with other hockey officials and TheI
Daily picked the team. The squad is,
composed of ten players, four of
whom helped the Alleycat team to ,
win the Hockey championship, and
three from the Psi U squad.
Jay Ball, of the Alleycats, was
picked as the captain of the team. His
rugged defensive tactics assured him
of a position as a defenseman on the
mythical sextet. Rival forwards
found it very difficult to get a shot
at the Alleycat goal with Ball on
the ice, and his frequent rushes on
opposing goals provided a great deal
of trouble for opponents.
The forward line of the team, com-
posed of Monty Welch, Alpha Delt, at
center ice; Sam White, Psi U, at right
wing; and George Cook, Alleycats, at
left wing, is the most formidable
front line that could be picked. Allf
of the boys are very fast skaters and
good stickhandlers. Each one caused
his rivals many uneasy moments dur-
ing the active season, and each one
accounted for quite a few goals.
The choice of a goalie was a hard
proposition, but Bill Woods, Psi U,
was given the call. His net minding
was very good throughout the sea-
son. Pete Fones, of the '38's, was
picked to team with Ball at defense.
His play was very similar to Ball's
throughout the year.
Four reserves were picked as alter-
nates with the first six players. Wal-
ter Stone, Alleycats, was picked as
alternate goalie; Bill Onderdonk, Psi
U, as alternate defenseman; and Ted
Ling, Alleycats, and Bud Robinson,
as alternate wings.

Strong in Distances5
The meet pole-vault mark of 13 t
feet 6%78 inches seems safe with Wis-
consin's triumvirate, Haller, Sharff,i
and Murdaugh, competing in the Ar-
mour Relays in Chicago. Sandbach's
60-yard high hurdle time of 7.4 sec-
onds, which is the world's record, also
seems out of the reach of this year's
crop of hurdlers.
In the four-mile, mile, and medley
events Michigan's strong middle dis-
tance and distance runners will be
favored to crack the records which
they set last year. The mile relay
team, made up of Steve Mason, Har-
ley Patton, Capt. Frank Aikens and!
Stan Birleson, won the Conference
title last week in 3:21, over five sec-
onds faster than the time that they
turned in to win the event last year.
Favored in Two-p1ile
In the four-mile relay the main
competition should come from In-
diana's distance aces who have fared
badly in their two previous meetings
with the Wolverines. The Hoosiers
will probably have Deckard, Smith,
and Lash running with the fourth
man undecided, and should give Bill
Staehle, Ray Fink, Walt Stone, and
Clayt Brelsford plenty competition
with the record of 18:02.6 sure to fall.'

A new record in that, however, seems
mprobable, for Owens will be running
n his first meet of the year and
would have to be at his peak to break
the tape in less than 6.1.
Don Elser has surpassed 48 feet 9%

the shot 48 feet 11% last week in
winning the C.I.C. meet. In the high
