tives dropped the football training table proposal like a hot potato
in their meeting here yesterday. It will be remembered that The Daily
went to bat for the table last winter, when a Wolverine gridder presumably
quit school because he lacked sufficient nourishment. Local agitation
helped bring the issue before the Conference board in its December meeting,
but it was given a once over and referred to some sort of a committee for
Prof. Lewis . Gram , who represented Michigan in that meeting,
in the absence of. Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman of the athletic
board, who was ailing, reported back that the faculty men refused
to vote on the 'rhatter until they had sounded out their local boards
in control of athletics. He opined, however, that action would
probably be taken at the May confab, which was held yesterday.

It was a tired but happy Don Lash
who walked off Ferry Field yesterday'
afternoon after winning crowns in the,
Conference mile and two-mile events,
and stated that he thought Ann Ar-
bor was a "swell" place except for,
the weather.

he was justified as his jaunty Hoosier,

His biggest thrill came when he

But the faculty representatives still refuse to recognize the fact that
college football has outgrown its swaddling clothes and has attained the
status of a bonafide business. And the logic behind their non-committal
attitude is best shown by a story relayed to me by a Daily reporter,,
who got it from William Weekes, crack W) sports writer who was here
covering the Conference track meet over the weekend.
A couple of years ago, Weekes reported, the faculty representatives h)iU
agreed to establish a training table in the Western Conference. An enter-
prising newspaperman got wind of it and printed the facts before the
Board could "officially" release them. This angered the Board to such an
extent that it dismissed the measure altogether as refutation of the
I won't vouch for the veracity of the story, but to my mind it constitutes
some excellent second-grade logic.

SOMETHING went wrong somewhere before the Big Ten tennis finals at
Palmer Field yesterday morning. Several participants, guests of the
University, were forced to roll the courts and lay out the lines themselves
before they were able to play.
Said Coach Phil Brain of Minnesota: "It was the worst handling of the
courts I have ever seen. No work had been done on them overnight, and
the boys had to do it themselves this morning. Yes, once they got them
in shape they were okay."
Said Coach Paul Bennett of Northwestern: "The caretakers didn't
have the courts in shape. The players did it themselves. They didn't
get playing until ten. Had to play some matches on concrete. Unless
we can get a guarantee that the courts will be kept in shape, there
will be no more Big Ten teninis matches at Michigan."
Said Coach John Johnstone of Michigan: "I would rather not discuss it.
The one groundkeeper that was there did all he could."
Said Dr. Margaret Bell, director: "Clay courts must dry for a certain
length of time (it started raining after ten). Everything ran beautifully.
All the coaches are pleased. The meet has been very successful, and no
one has any cause for complaint."
Does anyone else care to make comments on the matter?
Track, Field Chasers ...
PHIL DIAMOND, German prof and track dopester par excellence, enhanced
his reputation by missing by only a single point Michigan's total in the
meet ... He gave the Wolverines 59 whereas they collected 60 .. . His chief
discrepancies were in picking Stan Birleson to win the 440 (he finished
third), in placng the relay team fourth (it gained a second), and in calling
Osgood and Mason 1-3 in the low hurdles (they finished 1-2, with Mason
out front) . . . To Fred Delano, erstwhile Daily track expert, goes the palm,
however, for divining the margin of victory ... Fred predicted that Michigan
would beat Indiana by 17, points, and the actual difference was 16..
Hank Hatch, equipment custodian, was kept busy during the meet
measuring event winners for the u'niforms they'll wear as Big Ten
representatives in the great dual meet with picked stars of the Pacific
Coach on June 25th . . . Eleven Wolverines were measured: Sam
Stoller, Stan Birleson, Bill Watso'n, Jake Townsend, Dave Hunn, Jim
Kingsley, Steve Mason, Bob Osgood, Harold Davidson, Chuck Miller
and Fred Martin ... Ted Canty was the man who dispensed with a
loud speaker to annou'nce the proceedings ., . Canty, a Chicagoan
whose booming voice has been heard at almost every major track meet
in the Midwest in the past fifteen years, kept the crowd amused with
his rolling "R's" and Yostian "Meecheegan ... "
The thinclads must have felt like prize fighters after each event'
as Harry Wismer, WJR's young sportscaster, using a portable mike, rushed
up to them seeking a few words of breathless comment . . . Towels were
required to keep the sticks and spears of the javelin throwers and pole
vaulters dry until their turn to perform . . . The Varsity Band enlivpnPd
