At present Theta Chi fraternity
hias the first place position, but both
their tennis and baseball teams have
been eliminated from further compe-
tition. The only way they would be
able to add more points to their score
would be by capturing the Sigma Del-
ta Psi crown.
Psi Upsilon, which has finished in
the second place position fo rthe past
two years, is hot on the trail of
Theta Chi, and should be able to pass
them without any trouble. With
their baseball, tennis, and horseshoe
teams still in competition the Psi U's
are the outstanding contenders for
taking second place honors.

Big Ten Track T
Into 'Gots'An
Several Squads Prepared
To Threaten Michigan's
Claims To Supremacy
With the opening gun of the Big
Ten outdoor track championships
only two days off coaches and train-
ers in the circuit are leaving no stone
unturned, no possibilities untried, as
they muster every available ounce of
their track and field power for the
descent on Ferry Field Friday and
For a few teams it will be, barring
accidents on the road here and back,
a nice trip with a minimumnof exer-
cise involved. Saturday will find most
of these teams admiring the color-
ful proceedings from the bleacher
For three or four outfits it will
still be a nice trip and if all goes
well certain individual competitors
will collect some bronze, silver or
Coach Ken Doherty of the track
team, Sam Stoller, Varsity sprint-
er and Phil Diamond, Michigan
track authority and announcer at
home track meets, will speak to-
night over WJR, Detroit, at 10:15
p.m. Harry Wismer will interview
them on his regular evening sports
gold bric-abrac. Still, they can't be
counted out until Sunday morning
and with some breaks in a game
where anything can and often does
happen, these teams may kick over
the traces and walk off with first
Michigan, the host at the get-to-
gether, will get nothing much in the
way of travel but as the situation
sizes up at the present, the Wolver-
ines appear to be the only team with
anything like a cinch on the team
championship plus a good share of
the individual first place money.
With the track teams in the Con-
ference divided pretty much as any
other group in any field of activity is
divided, that is, into the "Have Gots"
and the "Haven't Gots," it is fairly
safe to shinny out on the greasy
limb with a few prognostications on
how the various track machines op-
erating around the loop will finish
and what they have in the way of ma-
terial with which to make their bids.
Starting with the tailenders or the
"Haven't Gots" we give you
PURDUE: Held without a point in
the indoor Conference meet, the Boil-
rmakers can only be nosed out of
the basement by Chicago or North-
western. Even this is improbable.
Best bets to garner them a few points
will be Bob Leman in the low hurdles,
Art Bodeau in the 880, and Roger
Delong in the sprints.
CHICAGO: With the exception of
their able quarter-miler George Hal-
┬░row and Matt Kobak, broad-jump-
er, top-flight track material is seldom
seen around the Midway this season.
Halcrow was third in the indoor con-
ference this season and has turned in
creditable times outdoors. He may
finish anyplace from first to fifth. The
same thing applies to Kobak. Only
other Maroon chance is that they
may be able to scare up enough 440
men for a relay team.
NORTHWESTERN: They finished
below Chicago indoors with only a
brace of points but they may better
this total somewhat outdoors but here
to there is nothing indicated. Henry
Keitel will, in all probability, be the
only Wildcat competitor left on the
track by Saturday afternoon. He is
good for a place and an outside shot
at first money in the wide open 440

and 220. They could enter a relay
team but with Keitel in the furlong
it wouldn't be worth the time.
MINNESOTA: This isn't football'
and the Golden Gophers will be lucky
to stay out of the cellar Saturday.
They still have weightmen Dominic
Krezowski and Irving Goodman. The
former won them the shotput crown
outdoors last year but that was 1936
B.W. (before Watson). Bob Hub-
bard may bring them a point or two
in the high jump and broad jump.

'Michigan Nine
Seeks Victory
Over Gophers
Varsity Out To End Losing
Streak; Fishman, Aase
Are Starting Pitchers
Seeking to bring up their season's
record to a .500 mark and at the same
time snap out of a losing streak
during which they have won but one
game in their last five, Coach Ray
Fisher's nine will open a two-game
series with a weak hitting Minnesota
team at 4 p.m. today on the Ferry
Field diamond.
Coach Fisher has named Herman:
Fishman, as his starting pitcher while
Kermit Aase is the logical choice to
start on the mound for the Gophers.
Aase turned in an excellent job of
hurling against Wisconsin last week,
holding the Badgers hitless for the
first six innings and allowing them
only two safe blows for the nine stan-
zas although Wisconsin won the game
by a 3-1 score.
Called 'Hitless Wonders'
Minnesota, self dubbed the "hitless
wonders," have also found the Big
Ten competition pretty tough after a
good start, and the Gophers have a
.500 percentage with three games won
and three lost. Poor batting has been
the cause of their mid-season slump,
and their team batting average at the
present time is hovering around the
.100 mark.
The Gophers have two outstanding
players in Captain Ted Brissman, a
smart catcher with a good arm and
Ed Roy, a very good centerfielder
defensively and a pretty fair man at
the plate.
Brewer Is Still Out
Don Brewer, spark plug of the
Varsity infield is still limping on a,
bad ankle and his regular shortstop I
duties will probably be handled by,
sophomore Pete Lisagor. The start- I
ing left fielder has not been named
and any outfielder on the squad is
apt to be found in this position when
the game starts. Captain Kim Wil-
liams, one of the possible starters, is,
laid up with a bad cold and will be
unable to play.
Yesterday afternoon's rain forced
the cancellation of the scheduled;
practice session.
The probable batting order and!
line-ups for today's contest are:

Will Run Quarter-Mile

On Stan Birleson's shoulder's will
rest Michigan's hopes of a win in
the quarter-mile run this week-end
in the Big Ten Conference Track
Meet at Ferry Field. Having run
the distance consistently under 50
seconds this year, the long-striding
senior from Muskegon Heights, took
first in the indoor Conference meet
earlier this season and is conceded
a fine chance to repeat in the out
door running. He also ran on the
championship mile-relay t e a m
which set a new record at the in-
door meet. His best time is 49.2 sec-

Freshmen TopI
Wisconsin; Set
Track Records
In the last meet of the Michigan
freshman track season last week-end
with Wisconsin, exceptional strength
was shown by the yearlings in the
hurdles and in the distance runs. Al-
though they did not do so well in the
triangular telegraphic meet with
Ohio and Wisconsin two weeks ago,
they were able to come back and
nose out Wisconsin 66/2 to 64% last
Saturday because. of their strong
In the Wisconsin meet seven new
freshman records were set. Stan
Kelley, hurdler from Lakewood, O.,
broke the records set by Bob Os-
good in both the low and high hur-
dles. In the 120 highs he lowered
the old record of 15.4 to 15.1. In the
220 lows he shattered the old record
of 24.6 with a 24.2.
In the half mile Tommy Jestor and
Dye Hogand both beat the existing
freshman record of 1:57.7.

314 South State btreec

In spite of the fact that he holdsj
the intercollegiate crowns in the 50-
yard free style, the 100-yard freestyle
and is a member of the highly suc-
cessful Michigan freestyle triumvi-
rate, Ed Kirar is very reticent about
talking about himself.
The tall, blond engineer who takes
his school work very seriously, finally
admitted, though, that swimming was
his hobby. In fact, it was one of
the reasons he came to Michigan, he
declared, the other being the high
rating of the engineering college here.
Starts Splashing Early
His swimming career started at the
age of six when his two older brothers
had gone out for the swimming teams
at their high schools so he decided
to follow their footbeats.,
He went out for swimming in high
school (and Kenosha Senior High,
Wis. called him "champ") and swam
against Ray Walters who would often
beat him. But last year, Ed made
up for this by defeating Walters in
the dual meet with Iowa and in the+
Big Ten meet. He also swam at the
University of Wisconsin uring his
freshman year.
Johnny Weissmuller is the swim-
ming personality he admires most
and he named Medica his favorite
collegiate star. "And Tom Haynie is
going to take his place as a national
swimming champion," the blue-eyed
natator predicted.
Likes Ohio State
He enjoys swimming against Peter
Fick the most as an individual op-
ponent, while the Ohio State swim-
mers are the team opponents he en-
invcmnctAnd if hP.'s still ximminsr

24,500 miles to participate in swim-
ming meets and has decided that Mil-
} waukee, Wis., is his favorite city in
Ithe country.
He intends to go into hydraulics
when he finishes school and is taking
1 up civil engineering now. And he
likes all of his courses, especially
Gets Up Early-Sometimes
The serious minded, twenty-two
year old engineer enjoys the distinc-
tion of being one of the few Mich-
igan students who aren't very en-
thused about sleeping and eating. In
fact, he even likes getting up in the
morning. But when he does eat he
likes steak dinners and strawberry
shortcake is his favorite dessert.
Next to swimming, football and
baseball are his favorite sports. And
'he's a strong supporter of the Cubs
when it comes to professional base-
ball although as a spectator he en-
joys watching good swimming the
most. Horseback riding is another
sport he enjoys-the result of the
cowboy tendencies in him cropping
out, he claims.
The good looking swimming star
claimed that he thought the prettiest
girls were at Wisconsin and admitted
that he rarely dated on campus.
