As He Breaks Sherf's Record

Be Tied By






Stan Birleson Expected To
Meet Strong Competition
From Beetham
With Michigan an odds-on fa-
vorite to beat the Ohio State thin-
clads tonight in Yost Field House,
local track fans will probably get
their thrills from record breaking
performances instead of from the
closeness of the meet as was the case
a week ago.
Four Field House records are defi-
nitely in danger of being tied while
another, the high jump mark, will
probably be broken.jDave Albritton,
lanky Negro jumper and hurdler, is
the man expected to give the Buck-
eyes possession of another local mark
Osgood Favored
Sam Stoller will make another as-
sault on the 60-yard dash record of
:06.2 which he has tied twice al-
ready this season. Another Wolver-
ine, Bob Osgood who is rated one of
the foremost hurdlers in the Wes-
tern Conference, last week ran the
highs in :08 seconds flat to tie Willis
Ward's Field House mark. Pushed
by Albritton he may do the same or
better tonight.
The 440 should be the best race on
the card with Charles Beetham and
Stan Birleson fighting it out in the
stretch. Last week a new record for
the event was hung up by Hicks of
Indiana who was clocked in :50.4.
Birleson was only a step behind and
against the Buckeye star, Beetham,
may be able to better even that time.
Beetham is defending outdoor Con-
ference champion in the half mile
and will probably be good for a first
place in the event tonight. Another
mark in danger is that for the mile
relay, Michigan's favored team hop-
ing to break it in its last indoor ap-
pearance here.
Albritton Is Sure Bet
Albritton is a sure bet in the high
jump, having bettered six-feet five
inches already this year. Ohio State
is also expected to pile up points in
the shot put and pole vault where the
Wolverines are weak. To offset this
Michigan will be forced to score
heavily on the track and local fore-
casters are expecting an easy Michi-
gan win.
The Buckeyes have been in two
dual meets so far this season and
have lost both. Indiana and Illinois
were the victors. Ohio's hopes to be
a Conference power this year fell
considerably at the end of the first
term with the announcement that
Jesse Owens was ineligible. Last
year, however, in the Buckeye-Wol-
verine meet here Owens could get but
one first, that in the low hurdles.
Michigan is expected to take the
meet in stride as a preparation for
the Big Ten meet to be held in Chi-
cago next week-end. The meet will
begin at 7:30 p.m.
Coach Keen's
Wrestlers Will
Meet Yearlings

"THAT remarkable relay team" will
make its final bid for the Field
House record tonight, but even if un-
successful,it will not be forgotten for
the mere fact that another quartet
retains the mark.
As one of the team's members said
after he had run his heart out to
keep the record clean, "I guess it's
just tradition, we can't seem to help
but give everything we've got."
Recognition of such a tradition
probably goes back to a locker-
room scene last spring, after the
quartet had just won the Confer-
ence track title for Michigan.
Draped over benches in a mixed
state of unconditioned happiness
and utter weariness, there was an
unspoken pledge that as long as
the team held together, another
year, it would continue with the
record it had established during
the last year.
That was just as the team had
established itself as one of the bravest
combinations ever to compete for
Michigan-providers of many thrills.
Outstanding among those thrills was
the Conference indoor meet, and the
Butler Relays, not to mention the
California dual meet. Although the
team's composition might vary, be-
tween Frank Aikens, Fred Stiles, Bob
Osgood, Harvey Patton and Stan
Birleson, their performances never
It was in the Conference indoor
meet that the team of sophomores
(Patton did not run) came from be-
hind to win in 3:22.7. but two weeks
after, at the Butler Relays, was an
even greater race. Buffeted about on
a bad track and in a rough field, the
ouartet came ahead of Pittsburgh,
the East's best, after a sensational leg
by Bob Osgood.
But the greatest thrill, and the
greatest test, was the Conference
outdoor meet. Michigan trailed
Ohio State by a half point:
Michigan had to place ahead of
Ohio State in the relay to win
the meet. And the fighting quar-
tet was ready. To finish ahead of
Ohio State was secondary to
them, Stiles, Patton, Aikens and
Birleson. And so it was that they
turned in the fastest mile ever
run East of the Pacific Coast, a
new Big Ten record, 3:15.2.
But their thrills did not cease with
the current season, and the same five,
augmented on occasion thisy ear by
a sophomore, Steve Mason, will leadI
Michigan into the Conference meet
next week the underdogs, but with
real Michigan money behind them.
Few people will forget the two
races which the team has run this
winter, the comebacks against Pitts-
burgh in the A.A.U. meet and the
race against Indiana which kept
Michigan's dual-meet record intact.
There is only a chance that the
Field House record of 3:22.9 held
by DeBaker, Eknovich, Turner
and Russell, will be broken to-..
night. Unless Charlie Beetham
and the Buckeyes should un-
leash a big surprise, there will be
little incentive to do so. They
thrive only on close races or over-
whelmig odds.
They remain "that remarkable
relay team."

Purdue Game
Is Last For Five
VarsityNM - Men
Earl Townsend, Tamagno,
Rudness, Evans And
Jablonski In Finale
Five members of the Michigan
basketball team will be playing the
last cage game of their college career
Saturday night when the Wolverines
meet Purdue in the closing tilt of the
Big Ten season and make a final
stab at the Boilermaker five, tied for
first place with Indiana.
The seniors are Capt. Chelso Ta-
magno, George Rudness, Earl Town-
send, John Jablonski, and Dick Ev-
Tamagno and Rudness have un-
doubtedly been overlooked this year
because of the spectacular play of the
two Townsend brothers. Rudness,
with 79 points in 11 games, is the
highest scoring guard in the Confer-
ence. His ballhawking and floor play,
especially on the offense, has been
one of the main factors in the Var-
sity's record of 15 wins against four
Tamagno, despite being handicap-
ped at the beginning of the Big Ten
season by a leg injury, has proved
himself one of the best defensive
guards in the Conference as well as
a continual scoring threat...
Jablonski and Evans have turned in
excellent jobs as reserves, both play-
ing a steady dependable brand of

work for all the height he can pos-
sibly get for the greatly improved

board is the real threat to the Boiler-
Just what lineup Lambert will put
on the floor Saturday night is a mat-
ter for conjecture. Bob Kessler and
Jewell Young, Purdue's brace of left-
handed forwards, are sure to be in
the front line but the rest of the line-
up is doubtful. Kessler is six-feet tall
but Young is only five-feet ten inches.

'Revenge Is Sweet' When
Barnard Defeats Rival
Frank Barnard is happy - and in
cidentally, so is Coach Matt Mann.
The reason for the jubilation i
the Michigan swimming camp is Bar
nard's double defeat of Dexter Wood
ford of Ohio State in the 220 and 440
yard free-style Wednesday night
which came as revenge for the twc
wins the Buckeye edged out in the
first dual meet between the two team
two weeks ago.
However ,the pair of victories a
Columbus mean more than merely
revenge for Barnard; they indicat
that the Wolverine junior is roundin
into top shape for the Conferenc
meet next week after a slow start thi
season and at the same time put
the score of the two-year dual be
tween the two stars at 6-3 in favo
of Barnard.
