Stage Meet For Benefit
Of VisitingTrackmnen
Intermittent snow flurries and con-
tinued cold kept the Michigan track
team within the Field House for the
second consecutive day yesterday, but
Coach Chuck Hoyt took advantage
of the bad weather to get ready for
the second annual Track and Field
Clinic to be held here Saturday.
The clinic, attended by high school
trackmen and coaches throughout
the state, will commence at 10:30
a.m. with a motion picture display in
Natural Science Auditorium conduct-
ed by David L. Holmes, track coach
of Wayne University. The movies
will show events of the Olympic
games, held at Los Angeles in 1932,
and also action shots of- the great
college track stars of today. Holmes
will accompany the pictures with
comments on the various events and
the varieties of form shown.
Coaches Demonstrate Events"
The actual athletic clinic will get
underway :at 1:30 p.m. with high
school and college coaches demon-
strating particular events. Sprint
anddistance relays, high jump, broad
jump, hurdles, pole vault and shot
put will be analyzed and the various
styles of each explained.
The entire Michigan squad will put
on an" exhibition meet at 2:30 p.m.
in the Field House, demonstrating
to the visiting coaches and athletes
just why the Wolverines have per-
ennially great track teams. Coach
Hoyt will summarize the discussion
during the exhibition meet and com-
ment on the individual events.
Stoller Shows Speed
Moreau Hunt, Sam Stoller, Harvey
Patton, Jack Uhl, and Bill Watson
spent a good part of the afternoon
at the end of the indoor track yes-
terday practicing starts out of the
blocks. Stoller gave the others a
handicap of about two yards and
displayed the speed which he is able
to get with his unorthodox start by
passing the field within 20 yards.
San White was putting the shot
along with Johnny Townsend and
Bill Watson and although his 163
pounds do, not give him the same
power as the larger boys, he was do-
ing almost 43 feet. Hoyt expects
White to do a good deal better when
his fingers become strong enough to
get some snap into his puts saying
that White's form is almost perfect
Greene Wins
A.A.U. Diving
CHICAGO, April 1. - (/P) - Al
Greene, veteran Lake Shore A. C.
diver, gave a brilliant exhibition in
the optionals to win the low board
title, his first major championship.
Greene piled up a total of 156.69
points, giving him a wide margin
over Marshal Wayne of Miami, Fla.,
who was second with 144.65. Dick
Degener, Detroit A. C., was third
with 141.98, and Jimmy Patterson,
Ohio State's Big Ten champion,
had 136.85 for fourth.

Dynamic Jack Medica of the Uni-
versity of Washington and the Wash-
ington A.C., of Seattle, Wash., con-
quered his great Miami, Fla., rival,
Ralph Flanagan, in the 1,500 meters
free style in 19 minutes, 6.8 seconds.

around girl athlete, boiled through

of the classes of 1937 and 1939, Ken
Doherty has gone to the little brown
notebook which holds so many of
Michigan's coaching secrets to bring
out comparative times and distances
for a dual meet between the two
classes, based on the best records of
the two classes made in freshmen
On the basis of these records,
the Class of 1937, led by Stan
Birleson, Sam Stoller, Bob Os-
good, Clayt Brelsford, Howard
Davidson and Walter Stone gets
a 562 to 47V.2 decision over the
present freshmen, led by Bill
Watson, Alan Smith and Roy
Although the score is close, the
present juniors can point out
that there is little chance for the
1939 trackmen to equal their rec-
ord of nine point-winners in
their first Conference meet. The
present freshmen may offer three
point-winners in their Confer-
ence meet, but little more.
As might be expected from the
showing of the present Varsity, it1
is in the field events that the fresh-
men clean up, but it is not for the
sole reason that the juniors were
lacking in strength. For Bill Wat-
son, the Saginaw foundry worker,
was the winner in three of the four
field events with distances which
would have guaranteed points in a
Conference meet, his shot put mark
being enough to win that event. Be-

feet, 11% inches in the broad jump
and 5 feet, 11% inches in the high
jump were winners.
Both teams were credited with
a slam, the freshmen in the
broad jump with Alan Smith and
Clark behind Watson, and the
juniors in the mile, which Harry
O'Connell, point winner in his
first Conference meet, won with
a best time of 4:33.9, followed by
Walter Stone and Sanford Ladd.
In the track events the juniors
were most closely pressed in the
half-mile and hurdles events. In the
half Harold Davidson was a second
slower than Clayt Brelsford's 1:59.8,
but at that was more than two sec-
onds better than brother Howdie,
who ran second last winter in his
first Conference meet and who has
since been a mainstay of the team.
In the hurdles Bob Osgood, 1935
Conference champion indoors, was
slightly better than Stewart, a first-
semester freshmen who- ran :08.6
in the 65-yard highs and :07.7 in the
Roy Heath and Alan Smith of
the present first-year class, de-
spite their promise, could get no
better than third in the quarter-
mile as they ran :51.8, slower
than Fred Stiles' :51.6 and Stan
Birleson's freshman standard of
In the dash Heath and Smith
also were forced down by Sam
Stoller's best time of :06.3 and
Fred Stile's :06.5, which both the
present yearlings equalled.
The relay points went to the pres-
ent freshmen on the basis of their
freshman record of 3:29.1 by Faulk-
ner, Davidson, Rosenberg, and Heath,
but the class of 1937 would protest
that decision with a team which
could have been composed of Cap-
tain Frank Aikens, Fred Stiles, Bob
Osgood and Stan Birleson.
Paper records don't mean a thing,
and the relative strength of the two
classes remains a moot point, but
every Michigan track follower is look-
ing forward to the combining of the
strength of the two squads on the
1937 Varsity.

boxing show, held yesterday after-
noon at Waterman Gymnasium,
brings to a close the current boxing
season for freshman pugilists. The
program arranged by boxing instruc-
tor Verne Larson consisted of 'eight
freshman matches and one exhibi-
tion bout.
Opening the show, Maurice Simmon
won a close decision over Richard
Waldenmeyer in the bantamweight
division. In the other fight in this
division, which was the feature of
the afternoon, Mike Bowler, Filipino
and All-Campus bantamweight cham-
pion, defeated Ellman Service in a
fine boxing exhibition.
Ostich Bests Leopold
The two fastest matches on the
program saw Nathan Ostich, charging
middleweight bomber, batter a game
rival, Ben Leopold, into submission to
gain an easy decision; and Harold
Friedman, present middleweight
champion, outpoint the hard-fighting
Bob Trowell with a barrage of timely
punches. Friedman and Ostich gave

Welters In Slow Bout
In the welterweight division, both
fighters employing cautious tactics
got off to a slow start, but the de-
cision was given to the more ex-
perienced Hugh McCormick over Dick
Sharlarsky. The featherweight cham-!
pion, Joe Forcier, again succeeded in
winning over his rival, Leon Wolfe,
by one of the closest decisions ren-
dered during the show.
The only heavyweight fight sched-
uled on the program gave Don Siegal,

the decision over Jack Peters, another
