ferent manner in the 880 until he
rounded the last turn where he turned
on just enough steam to put him
home an easy second behind his
teammate, Dick Squire, who set the
early pace and held it.
Michigan hopes took a thumping in
the half-mile as both Howdie David-
son and Clayton Grelsford ran out of
the money in the first heat leaving
the task of placing the Hoytmen on
the shoulders of Bennie Starr, who
squeezed out a fourth place in his
heat. Brelsford was nipped at the
tape by Don Lash. Mel Trutt took
the race ahead of Blickle of OSU and
Mehl, Wisconsin.
Steve Mason bolstered the Wol-
verine chances in the low hurdle
finals and finished the route five yards
ahead of the field after taking the
lead from the gun. Capt. Jack Rob-
inson of the Illini was obviously still
handicapped by a recently sprained
ankle and failed to qualify. Robin-
son beat Osgood indoors to annex the
conference title.
Michigan got off to an unexpected
start in the javelin as Fred Martin
led the otherwise mediocre field with
a 182 foot 3 inch throw. Tex Stan-
ton also qualified for today's final
throws. John Townsend was close on
Watson's heels in the discus but failed
to hit form in the shot and barely
squeezed into the finals by a one inch
margin over the next man below him.
The finals get underway today at
1 45 p.m. when the pole vaulters start
competition. The opening ceremony
will be at 2 p.m. when the Big Ten
track and field circus is declared of-
ficially underway.

Medwick, Cronin
Tied In Bat Race
(By Associated Press)
Ducky Medwick, already setting the
National 'eague batting pace, ad-
vanced to a tie with Joe Cronin of
the Red Sox for first place in Base-
ball's Big Six in hitting yesterday.
The Cardinal clouter collected two
hits in three chances to boost his
average six points to .443, while Cron-
in slipped four points to the same
figure. Buddy Hassett, Brooklyn
first-baseman, caused the only other
change by hitting three-for-four to
raise his average 15 points and dead-
lock his rookie teammate, Gil Brack,
for third place in the National League,
each with .376.
Standings of the leaders (first three
places in each league):

Bob Collier, Indiana captain and
sprint star qualified in both the
100 and 220-yard dash in yester-
day's preliminaries. His time in the
century equaled that of Sammy
Stoller who won the second heat.
Collier placed fourth in the Con-
ference Outdoor Meet last spring.

Aside Lines
Lobby Coaching ...
T HE UNION LOBBY was jammed
with Conference notables yester-
day morning as faculty representa-
tives, athletic directors and coaches
gathered for their biennial confabs.
In one group buzzing with conversa-
tion were seen Bernie Bierman and
"Bo" McMillin, apparently wrapped
up in a serious discussion. They were
probably passing out "bear" stories
anent their gridders, and each wasE
probably absorbing the other's woe-
ful tale with inward skepticism.
Bierman, whom almost every Min-
nesota farmer affectionately calls
"Bernie," has Minneapolis agog with
the prospects of his 1937 eleven. The
Gopher juggernaut has power to
waste in everydepartment. McMil-
lin's popularity at Indiana is easily
manifested in the attitude of any
Hoosier encountered on the Bloom-
ington campus. They idolize the phil-
osophical little mentor.1
Heard And Overheard ... j
0UR CADDY informative passes on
the fact that Harry Kipke dropped'
more than a deuce on the 18th hole
of the University golf course yester-
day . . . Let's not get off on the
wrong foot, Kip . . . Strolling around
on the infield yesterday during the
prelims of the track meet, one could
watch the participants' faces and
realize the stamina required to com-
pete in a foot race . . . "Heart" is a
vital asset to a track man as the
stories behind many of America's
greatest runners will bear out . . .
Archie San Romani, the Kansan star,
was struck by a five-ton truck when,
as a boy, he was hurrying to the
butcher's for some liver, and doctors
gravely contemplated amputation of
his leg . . . Exercise was advised to
strengthen the limb, and the brave
Romani ran mile after mile, until he
became a sensational track star . . .
The story of Glenn Cunningham's
misfortune and subsequent courage-
ous recovery has become legend. He
suffered severe leg burns in a Kansas
schoolhouse fire, in which his broth-
er was cremated, and doctors had
consigned him to invalidism... Sim-
.ilarily with Percy Williams, the
Olympic sprint star, who was too
frail for active sport as a child...
Bill Bonthron also suffered badly
to run to bring "life" back to his
burned legs as a youth.
When Stan Birieson sped toward
the tape in the 440 prelim, he was
looking all around him, not wanting
to extend himself. . . T. Hawley Tap-
ping, Alumni secretary, standing near
the finish line wanted to know if
Stan was on a "sightseeing tour" .. .
Stan wisely explained that he saw
no reason to shoot the works in a
prelim, when bigger things awaited
on the morrow.

Have you ever used your eyes for several hours at a time - writing or studying
-and found yourself at the end of that period physically "all in?" You may
need glasses. Your eyes should be examined regularly by an eyesight specialist.
Or it may be that you have poor lighting. This -causes eyestrain, which uses
up nervous energy and produces fatigue. Your eyes will adjust themselves
readily to a variety of conditions. They are slow to complain of the abuses
of poor lighting.
Every seeing task is made easier with better light. There is one way to
be sure of your lighting - have it checked with the Sight Meter. This instru-
ment measures accurately the amount of light on your printed page of work. It
tells you whether you are getting enough light for safe seeing, as recommended
by the Science of Seeing.
Why be in doubt about your lighting? It is better to be sure that your
lighting is right. The Sight Meter points the way to better light and better
sight. Have your lighting checked with a Sight Meter. There is no charge.
