Parade Of Greats
By FRED H. fnE LANO
Michigan's track team gets its big
chance Friday and Saturday.
Twelve thousand sport fans will
fight their way into the Ferry Field
stands next week-end to see the 37th
annual Big Ten track and field cham-
pionships which should develop into
the greatest track spectacle since the
A mighty Indiana squad, boasting
the greatest collegiate distance run-
ners in the world, will be battling to
defend its Conference title won in
the 1936 meet at Columbus. Ohio
State will be depending on two of
the world's best high jumpers and a
national championin the half mile
to make it a contender for the crown.
Wisconsin's hopes for the title rest
on its great power in the pole vault.
Over and above all this. the great-
est Michigan team that has ever
been produced, a team that ranks as
the outstanding track and field squad
in the United States, will be gunning
for its 15th Western Conference
championship-and what's more im-
portant should win it.%
Since the track teams of the Big
Ten started holding this meet in 1901
the Wolverines have won 14 times,
Illinois 12, Wisconsin 3, Chicago 3
and Indiana only 1. No other team
has won. Also, Michigan has won
the last four Big Ten indoor meets.
Preliminaries in both hurdles, the
100, 220, 440, 880, shot put, discus,
broad jump and javelin will be held
Friday afternoon and finals in all
events will be Saturday starting at
Owens Outstanding In '35
Two years ago the Conference
teams assembled here for this meet
and Michigan emerged as champion.
That same afternoon the track star
of theage Jesse Owens of Ohio State,
broke three world records and tied
a fourth. While the coming meet may
not produce that many world records
it certainly will lack none of the
glamour of the 1935 affair.
From'the time the meet opens with
the mile run until the concluding mile
relay there will be a steady parade of
"greats" on Ferry Field. Eight de-
fending champions will be on hand
to try again for the titles they cap-
tured last year and to all appearances
there is one certain to fall. This is
Dominic Krezowski of Minnesota,
shot put champion. It's an odds-on
bet that Michigan's great sophomore,
Bill Watson, will lift his crown.
Other champions who will be here
are Don Lash in the mile and two
mile, Chuck Beetham in the half mile,
Al Haller of Wisconsin in the pole
vault, Mel Walker in the high jump,
Bush Lamb of Iowa in the javelin
and finally Michigan's own Capt. Bob
Osgood in the high hurdles.
Lash In Spotlight
The spotlight will likely shine
brightest upon Indiana's great ace,
Don Lash, as he attempts to break
his own Conference records in the
two distance runs. His teammates
Tommy Deckard and Jim Smith will
give him all the competition he may
want in both races while Chuck
Fenske of Wisconsin has proved in
other meets that he has the ability
to beat the Hoosier "Iron Man." Last
Year Lash won the mile in 4:10.8
with Fenske second in 4:10.9.
Five Conference records are defi-
nitely on the block. Besides the mile
and two mile marks the shot put,
half mile, and high jump records may
go by the boards while that in the
discus is considered none too safe.
Undefeated in 1937, Michigan
should win the meet. Indiana, Wis-
consin, Ohio State and Illinois will
trail the Wolverines in very close to
that order. This observer, in his final
contribution to The Daily, takes the
liberty of making this prediction and
adds that Michigan's margin over the
Hoosiers will be in the neighborhood
of 17 points.
COP I-M GOLF TITLE
Phi Kappa Psi won its second
straight Intramural golf title with
a total of 333. Theta Delta Chi fin-
ished in second place five points be-
hind the winners. Third place went
to Beta Theta Pi. Individual medal
honors were won by Fred Schwartz
of the Phi Psi team with a 78.

The PRESS ANGLE
By GEORGE J. ANDROS
Swan Song .,. .
THIS IS THE SWAN SONG of The Press Angle, the farewell appearance
of the most neglected and most notorized sports column to appear in
The Daily in the past five years. This parting shot will be no formal, well-
organized essay-but rather a recital of the multitude of thought that
come to me now as I hoist my leg up around the battered Royal and peck
out for the last time: "Andros for the column for Sunday . . . 111111 . . .."
But let us away, our time is short; and Tom and Red, linotype men as
accurate as they are patient and long-suffering, are ringing for copy. '
I could go back to my childhood days in Lansing when I shagged
balls for the Michigan State baseball team and cheered for the Spar-
tans to whip the daylights out of Ray Fisher's Michigan nine. But
that is a forgotten chapter. The greatness of the University, apparent
to me in a small way even at a distance, changed my attitude as I grew
older and brought one more very green freshman to Ann Arbor to I
join the class of '37.
Not for one moment have I doubted my choice. I am and always shall
be proud to have been a Michigan man. And prouder yet to have had
even an insignificant part in carrying on the traditions of Michigan. I have
made mistakes, I have been hypocritical, and I have had the attitude that
Michigan is a king who can do no wrong; but my only regret is that I have
not taken advantage of all the opportunities Michigan has offered me.
THE PAST YEAR has been one of ups and downs. Football at Michigan
became a "situation." I took a side directly opposite that of most
of my fellow writers, and regret it not one little bit. I have great faith
in Harry Kipke as football coach at Michigan and have no doubt that
next season will see a great rise in the football . fortunes of the Maize and
Blue. In the short time I have known flunk Anderson and watched him at
work, I have come to realize that he is the new blood that Ferry Field needed.
And Michigan football teams again will block.
Last November I wrote: "One might even say Alex Loiko went home
for dinner." That started agitation for a football training table in the
Western Conference. Next weekend a committee appointed as an
eventual result of that sentence meets to decide the fate of the
possibility of a training table in the Big Ten. I still maintain the
Michigan football squad needs assistance from the University in the
form of one meal a day.
Since a year ago today I have learned to respect as great moulders
of Michigan men the Varsity coaching staff. I have no fear for the boys
who are fortunate enough to have the opportunity of working under Kipke,
Anderson, Matt Mann, Chuck Hoyt, Ray Fisher, Wally Weber, Cappy Cappon,
Bennie Oosterbaan, Ken Doherty, Cliff Keen, Johnny Johnstone and Ray
Courtright. I thank them one and all for the time they have given me
when other matters were more important. And especially Matt Mann and
his swimmers who had a great deal to do with my being in this spot tonight.
HAVE HAD the privilege of working under three sports editors. Once,
again may I express my appreciation for their help and inspiration. It
was Al Newman who started me off on the right track (and made me a
fraternity brother). Here was one "hot box" rushing point that did come
true. I DID become sports editor. It was Art Carstens who gave me a
bit of a start on the rest of the boys in my sophomore year by handing
me the swimming beat. (And he had no small part in finding me a wife).
To Bill Reed, my immediate predecessor, I need say little.
Tonight marks the dissolving of the "Sports Staff Class of '37." I
am proud to have been a member of it and have worked with Freddie
Buesser, Fred DeLano and Ray Goodman. Perhaps "We Three Shall
Meet Again," Bonth, but until then never forget the lad you plied with
eggs. To the other Fred (DeLano), let me say only that I am
thankful for library regulations. I shall always remember you as the
most versatile one of us-the one who someday WILL be a true editor.
You, Ray, will probably be missed more than the rest of us. You and
Johnny Townsend put Michigan basketball on its feet. You have
made the sport page of The Daily respected when winter comes along.
He who fills your shoes will have a great task before him-in more
ways than one.
To my successor, whoever he is to be, only a brief message.. Remember
the possibilities-and responsibilities-of your position. Always keep in
mind the great heritage Michigan athletics pass on to you. Do not fear
to speak your own mind. Do not listen to those whose attitudes are destruc-
tive. Do not be afraid of those who criticize. You are a part of Michigan
now-she is beyond and above all the pettiness you will encounter in the
next twelve months.
Not too good, eh, inspiration?
But, that's all there is; there isn't anymore.
THE PRESS ANGLE IS DEAD; LONG LIVE THE PRESS ANGLE.
