THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Allan Tolmich Gets Firsts
In 100 And 220 Dashes
And Both Hurdle Races
By ROY HEATH
Wayne University and Michigan
State Normal College battled to a
tie in the finals of the Michigan
State Intercollegiate Track and Field
meet yesterday afternoon at Ferry
Field as the result of a disputed one-
mile relay. The winners scored 431/3
points each as Michigan State, de-
fending champion, trailed with 35 3
Wayne went into the one-mile relay
with a chance at a clear title by
second place performances, largely
as a result of four first places gar-
nered by Allan Tolmich in the 100
yard dash, 220 yard dash, and both
the hurdle races.
Double Foul Claimed
On the anchor leg of the race Sher-
man Ford of Western State cut
sharply in front of Jim Votta, the
Wayne runner, forcing him to break
his stride and finish third behind
Michigan Normal and Western State.-
The race was protested by Wayne
and a counter protest was lodged by
Michigan Normal on the grounds that
their lead-off runner had been foulesd
by a Wayne man. The decision of
the judges was that the places should
be awarded as the schools finished,
thereby throwing the school into a
tie for the championship.
Al Tolmich, crack Tartar speedster,
turned in the outstanding perform-
ance of the afternoon as he breezed
through to win four events and set
a new meet record of 14.7, 3 tenths
of a second better than the old stand-
ard of 15 flat, set by Bath of Michigan
State in 1932, in the high hurdles.
Tolmich took the lead at the gun in
all four of his events and was never
Abe Rosenkrantz was one of the
mainstays of the Michigan Normal
crew as the two-way winner at last
year's Jewish Olympics, held in Pales-
tine, pulled away from the field in
both the mile and the 880 and ran a
leg on the winning Huron one-mile
relay. In the 880 Rosenkrantz staved
off a game second lap threat by Ham-
ilton of Detroit University and gal-
loped home to a new meet record
of 1:54.0 for the distance. The old
record was 1:55.5 established by
Gaines of Western State in 1929.
Constantine Eizak of Wayne also
collected a pair of victories in the
shot put and the discus. Eizak tossed
the platter 135 feet, 7% inches and
the shot 45 feet 1% inches as he took
The other contesting teams finished
as follows: Western State, 28; Kala-
mazoo 10; Grand Rapids Junior, 5;

The HOT STOVE
- By BILL REED -
T'HIS is the Swan Song of the Hot Stove, its final appearance.
For ten months I have thought periodically of this moment. Then
with the license which the occasion affords, I would be able to give vent
to all the pen-up emotion and sentiment to which I had been moved so
many times during the past year. but which good taste forbade expression.
Now the moment is come - but somehow that effervescent enthusiasm
which I thought would mark this moment is absent. In its place is a growing
nostalgia born of the past four years which have been the happiest of my life.
I think back of the kid who knew no other school than Michigan since
he could speak of college; then of the round little fellow who escaped
his guardians on a pilgrimage to Ann Arbor to sneak into a corner of
Ferry Field to watch Bennie Oosterbaan, his immortal hero of the
moment; then the same kid, older but no less rotund, watching a state
track meet in which Willis Ward was jumping higher than that pudgy
youth believed human legs could send human body.
Those are the most vivid recollections from the background of the boy
who ultimately went to Michigan, where he was to come into close contact
with Bennie Oosterbaan, still no less a hero but now an embryo journalist's
confidant, and with Willis Ward, also still a hero but now another personal
At Michigan that boy who knew no other school but Michigan and no
other athletes but Michigan's, was to meet the inevitable disillusionment in
finding that the names whom he had worshipped from afar were but fellow-
beings, just as human as he. But disillusionment isn't the word, for it implies
a disappointment in those individuals as he found them at close observa-
tion, and a real disappointment there has never been.
In four years I have gone through many stages here - from the all-
worshipping to the all-deprecating, and around the cycle, but tonight,, as
those four years near their end, I can make my judgments.
Of Michigan I am proud. It's name, its traditions inspire me. For
it is of the truly great.
It is net perfect. It will stoop or step into the shadows. It may be
inconsistent, it can be a hypocrite. But every one of those derelictions
is but caprice - of an institution whose greatness transcends mere
I am proud of Michigan, for the respect and attention which it commands.
I have seen the things which create that respect. It is the performance
of men who cannot reserve their better than best. They are the spirit of
Michigan - the men in whom the tradition is so instilled that they cannot
help but do a little more than asked.
It is they, with the pudgy little fellows who live for Michigan far away
from Ann Arbor town, 'that makes this institution. There is something
touching in their faith in Michigan and its future.
They have lived that Michigan will continue to give a little more
when the going gets hard, and they live that Michigan will spare them
tragic disillusionment when it comes their turn to face the actualities
of this institution.I
I have been spared that latter tragic disillusion, and I have seen
men give their all that Michigan may live in its glory, during my four
brief years here. May it be ever so.
A N OPEN MESSAGE of personal feeling.
To George Andros, who succeeds me as conductor of this page: May
your incumbency be as filled with thrills, tears and smiles as has mine.
To all my associates on The Daily sports staff, and particularly George
Andros, Fred Buesser, Fred DeLano, and Ray Goodman:
I have been told by several observers whose opinions I sincerely respect
that our page this year has been the best in history. I deny responsibility
for whatever laurels it may have achieved, it has been the sincere interest,
hard work and intelligence which you have applied which have been re-
sponsible. I am grateful.
To the Michigan track team, and Coach Charlie Hoyt: You are the Mich-
igan I like to think of, I have no fear for you.
To the Michigan athletic administration, coaches and players: We who
know your aims and ideals, will have no trouble with cheap barbs of jealousy
To all: THE HOT STOVE IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE HOT STOVE!

Detroit Netters I
By 5-3 Score,
Kahn And Rodriguez Take1
Singles Matches Playing
DETROIT, May 16. - Despite the
great play of Capt. Howie Kahn and
Johnny Rodriguez who defeatedz
George and Johnny Reindel, Michi-
gan's Varsity net team went down
to another defeat, this time at the
hands of the Detroit Tennis Club,
by a 5-3 score here today.
Captain Kahn rallied after losing
the first set 6-4, and drove out a
4-6, 6-3, 6-4, victory over George
Reindel, who is a former Michigan
player and who holds the Detroit
City title at the present time. Kahn's
greater steadiness was the deciding
factor in the match as he repeated-
ly outlasted Reindel in great rallies.
Justifies Coach's Faith
Johnny Rodriguez, who was moved
up to the number two position to
take the place of the Varsity's two
veterans, Miller Sherwood and Jar-
vis Dean, both of whom are laid up
with sickness and injuries, justified
Coach John Johnstone's faith in him
by trouncing Johnny Reindel, run-
ner-up to George Reindel for the De-
troit City championship, in straight
sets, 6-4, 6-3.
Carl Grawn, Detroit veteran, was
just too good for Jesse Flick in the
number three match and won in a
walk, 6-2, 6-2. Grawn will face
Michigan again tomorrow as a mem-
ber of the Grosse Point tennis club
and despite his advanced years will
give the Varsity netters plenty to
Lewis Is City Champ
Ted Thorward ran up against
Steve Lewis, Ann Arbor city cham-
pion for a great many years and
runner-up to LeRoy Weir for the
same title last year, and found his
strategy in trying to run his oppon-
ent as he went down to defeat in
straight sets, 6-1, 6-4.

Unofficial Century Mark
MADISON, Wis., May 16. - (,) -
Jesse Owens of Ohio State Uni-
versity bettered the world's record in
the 100-yard dash today, running it
in 9.3 seconds in a dual track meet
between Ohio State and Wisconsin,
in which the Badgers surprised the
Buckeyes to win 66 2/3 to 59 1/3.
Owens beat by one-tenth of a sec-
ond the previous record of 9.4 which
he held jointly with George Simpson
of Ohio State. The Buckeye Negro
star gran with a stiff wind at his
back, however, and the new mark
probably will not be officialy recog-
