Michigan Trackmen Leave For Butler Relays Today



* By GE E J. ANMd -mJ
When Owens Lost .,..
SAMMY STOLLER is going to be
busy at the Butler Relays this
week-end getting 60 yards of revenge
for the defeat administered him in
the Conference Championships by
Bobby Grieve, of Illinois, but the
pleasant Olympian will not be forget-
ting the same meet last year when he
beat the great Jesse Owens-and did
not get credit for it. Sam and Jesse
had been rivals since high school, but
the Wolverine ace had never bested
the brisk Buckeye. Last March be-
fore 5,000 spectators in the huge
Butler Field House, Sammy thought
the time was ripe to take Owens.
Quiet settled over the huge crowd as
the country's two fastest short-dis-
tance men scuffled at their marks
and stepped into their blocks. Then
the gun. The Ohio State alumni
roared. The Michigan alumni roared
back. And it was over-just like
that. Jesse turned around and con-
gratulated Sam on the latter's vic-
try. Then came the announcement:
"Finals, 60-yard dash. The winner
. . . . Jesse Owens, of Ohio State.
Second, Sam Stoller, of Michigan.
Third . . " The crowd sat back.
Owens did everything but give the
medal to Sam, but the decision stood.
Down on the field house floor was a
young man with a camera. In that
camera was a plate that had been
exposed just as Sam and Jesse hit
the tape. 'hie next day that plate
was developed, and it told the ob-
vious truth-Stoller had defeated
Owens in the 60-yard dash.
THIS IS THE week-end of the finals
of the State Interscholastic bas-
ketball tournament, and I won't go
any farther than to predict that Lan-
sing St. Mary's repeats a Class C
champion, but it does bring to mind
that last week-end I saw Indiana
in the midst of its high school re-
gionals. Ray Goodman had pounded
Indiana basketball madness into my
head for three and one-half years,
but seeing is believing. And believe
you me, I saw. During the first meal
I ate in a Bloomington restaurant
the waiter said to me: "Gosh, I wish
this were Saturday." "Why," ,I re-
plied curiously, "pay day?" "Hell,
no," came -the quick answer, "regional
basketball tournament." From that
point on it came to me in great
lumps that Indiana really and truly
is basketball mad. I saw the high
school field house in a city of 4,000
population that holds 5,000 specta-
tors. And they fill it. I heard horns
and sirens below my hotel window at
all hours of the night. I saw serious
looking youngsters in hotel lobbies
get barked at by worried looking
coaches because they had stood on
their feet five minutes after coming
out of the elevator. But the payoff
came Sunday. The Varsity swimming
team's entourage of three cars pulled
up in Bloomington's largest gas sta-
tion to fill up for the trip home.
Three silver cups were in evidence
and tired happiness was beaming
round about. "Say," queried the at-
tendant, "what's all this? Who are
you?" He was informed that it was
the Michigan swimming team that
had just won the Big Ten swimming
meet held in town that week-end.
"Big Ten swimming meet? What's
that?" And I had the brass to won-
der why only 100 people came to the

Yankees are too perfect. Search as
he will he can't find anything wrong

the perfection is causing his brow to

Tennis Squad
Shows Wares
In Early Drills
The night before last Coach John
Johnstone gave spectators at the
Intramural Open House their first
official view of Michigan's 1937 ten-
nis squad in action. Eight men, Mil-
er Sherwood, captain this year, Jar-
vis Dean, Jesse Flick, Ted Thorward,
Bill Mills and Seymour Morrison,
ranking in that order, and freshmen
Tom Slattery and Willard Bidwell,
took over the courts for about an
hour to show their wares. In two
months they will be hosts to the other
Conference teams for the annual Big
Ten meet.
That is May 20-22. Between now
and then they have sixteen dual con-
tests to attempt to tuck under their
belts, and according to Coach John-
stone there's a good chance to take a
large proportion of them.
Only two men left the varsity ranks
by the graduation route last season,
and several whom Johnstone rated
among the best of the freshman net-
ters last year have been added to
take their places.
Approximately three weeks remain
for the squad to get into shape for
their first contest of the season,
scheduled for Appil 17, when the Wis-
consin team drops off on their way
south for a scheduled tour. Listed on
the calendar are only five home
games besides the three-dayvConfer-
ence meet, and nine contests on the
