Cody, Kasley and Bob Mowerson did
2:59.4 to better the old record of
2:59.6 held by the same team, and
Kirar tied his own 100-yard free-
style standard of :53.2, also held by

Haynie finished the furlong in
2:15.4 two yards ahead of Woodford,
but the latter was the first to touch.
The 440 was even closer, Haynie
sprinting to nip Woodford by two
yards in 4:55.1 with Barnard coming
up strong to finish -three yards be-
Kirar was one foot ahead of team-
mate Walt Tomski at the end of the
50, and took Bob Johnson of the
Buckeyes by a yard and a half in the
100. Baker Bryant was about a foot
behind to take third for Michigan.
Both relays were walkaways for
the Wolverines, each by a complete
length of the pool.
The Wolverines will go into compe-
.tition again one week from tomor-
row in the Big Ten championships
to be held at Bloomington.

New Records
Are Thinclads'
Aim Tomorrow
Pittsburgh Trackmen May
Press Varsity; Injuries,
IneligibilityHit Team
Michigan's track team, hit sud-
denly by the injury and ineligibility
jinx, will face a powerful and well
balanced University of Pittsburgh
squad tomorrow night on practically
even terms.
Field House records will be en-
dangered in practically every event
with Michigan's seniors, competing
on the local indoor track for the
last time, out to hang up as many new
marks as possible. In fact, it may
prove that the Wolverines will have to
turn in record smashing perform-
ances to top the Panthers in the
point column.
Starr Lost To Team
The loss of Ben Starr until April
1 has complicated for Coach Chuck
Hoyt the problem of whom to enter
in the middle distance runs. The
question is further muddled by the.
fact that Ross Faulkner, promising
sophomore quarter-miler, is still in
the Health Service and unless he is
able to compete next week-end in the
Big Ten meet at Chicago the Wol-
verines may have to put up a great-
er battle than now expected before
annexing their fourth straight Con-
ference championship.
For tomorrow's meet Coach Hoyt
has decided to run Steve Mason in
the 440 as well as the low hurdles.
Both Harold and Howard Davidsonl
will be in the half, the race that Starr
has won in both of the season's meet
for the first time this year, along
with Ed DeVine and Brelsford. Fink
and O'Connell will be the Wolverine
runners in the mile.
Hoyt Undecided
The veteran Howard Davidson
against Ohio State ran the quarter
and also a leg of the relay while
sophomore Harold has competed in
the mile this season. As yet Hoyt
has not decided what four men he
will put in the relay.
In the 1936 Michigan A.A.U. Re-
lays the Pitt relay team ran against
the Wolverines in a special invita-
tional race and Michigan was forced
to come from behind to win in 3:24.4.

Pitt Record Holder

r ti
Jack Kasley, co-captain of the
Wolverine swimming team broke
the Intramural pool record in the
breast stroke yesterday in the Var-
sity's victory over the Ohio State
squad. The score was 53 to 31.
Yearling Track
Squad Meets
Iowa Via Wire
Michigan's freshman track team,
classed by Assistant Coach Ken Do-
herty as one of the best yearling
squads in recent years, is this week-
end competing against Iowa in the
first telegraphic meet of the year.
Next week the Wolverine freshmen
will clash in a telegraphic meet with
Wisconsin and following this will
compete against Indiana and Ohio
State in that order to wind up the
indoor season. As Iowa holds a vic-
tory over the Hoosier yearlings the
score of the Michigan-Hawkeye clash
is expected to be close.
There are several outstanding men
on Doherty's squad that should make
good Varsity men for the next three
years. In the mile and two mile
Ralph Schwartzkopf and Paul Wisner
are rated as the best, while in the
quarter and both the high and low
hurdles, Stan Kelley appears to be
the tops. Dave Cushing in the pole
vault and Ken Steen in the shot are
two more freshmen who should fare
well in intercollegiate competition.
After these four indoor telegraphic
meets Doherty's squad will in May
compete in several outdoor meets of
the same type.

Townsend Seeks Second Place
As Young Breaks Scoring Mark

Harold Tost, Pittsburgh senior, is
the man Clayt Brelsford will have
to beat tomorrow night in the mile
run if he is to remain undefeated
in the 1936 indoor campaign. Tost
holds the University of Pittsburgh
records for the event both indoors
and outdoors.
$1 Will Get You $500
If Forecasts Are Right
NEW YORK, March 3.-GP)-It's
a long shot proposition but $1 will
get $500 if the country's leading
sports editors are correct in their
forecast of the outcome of 1937's ma-
jor professional sports.
Gazing into the crystal ball at the
request of the Associated Press, the
majority of the writers saw, (1) Joe
Louis whipping Jim Braddock for
the world heavyweight title at Chi-
cago; (2) Harry Cooper wearing the
National Open golf crown after
many a year of being close; (3)
Pompoon leading the turf's greatest
three-year olds home in the Ken-
tucky Derby, and (4) the New York
Yankees defending their World Se-
ries title against the St. Louis Car-
Broadway's Jack Doyle is the au-
thority that the five-star parlay is a
500 to 1 proposition though he didn't
say he'd accept any wagers at that

Gee Eyes 100 Point Total
In Season's Final Game
Against Badgers
Saturday night, after Michigan and
Wisconsin have tangled at Yost Field
House, after the Illini have finished
their game with Northwestern, and'
Minnesota has played Chicago, the
1937 Conference basketball scoring
race will be over. Of the ten present
leaders, most of whom are sure to
get some high positions in the finals,
eight will have a last chance to boost
their records.
Although Jake Townsend and
Johnny Gee are certain of final
places, they'll be trying to climb an-
other notch or so Saturday against
the Badgers in the Wolverines' last
game of the season. Jake, now in
fourth place, is only two points be-
hind his last season's total of 108 and
has a good chance to better that rec-
ord considerably and even climb to
third or second.
Young Has 172
Johnny Gee,.now in fifth with 95,
has the century mark as his goal, and
with his present average of nine
points per game he should be able
to make it. This is his last game in
Conference competition, as he is a
First, of course, in the final stand-
ing, is Jewell Young. Monday night
against Wisconsin he finished the
season with a total of 172, setting a
new conference record. He bettered
by five points Joe Rieff's old total
of 167, established in 1933 when he
was playing with Northwestern.
Many Fighting For Places
Fighting with Townsend Saturday
will be Harry Combes, now in third,
and Mike McMichael, present second
place holder. They'll all have a share
in these three places, but whether
they'll stay as they are remains to
be seen.
Gordon Addington, Johnny Kund-
la, and George Rooney will also be in
when the finals are totaled, unless,
of course, none of them score any I
more points. Addington and Rooney
are tied for seventh place with Ken
Gunning, who incidentally has the
real worrying to do having finished
the season. He has nothing to do but


Hockey Team Prepares For Invasion
By Most Formidable Foe In Five Years




The most formidable foe that a
Michigan hockey team has been
called upon to face in the last five
years, a team that has drubbed Dart-
mouth 10-1, Princeton 10-0, and
scored impressive victories over such
vaunted opponents as the Boston
Olympics, Yale, Queen's and the Uni-
versity of Montreal, will provide the
opposition for Eddie Lowrey's Wol-
verines in the Coliseum Saturday
The invaders are the Toronto Var-
sity, powerhouse of eastern intercol-
legiate hockey and one of the best
puck clubs in North America.
In this, their first year in the new-
ly formed International Intercolle-
giate Hockey League made up of the
leading schools of both the American
and Canadian east, Toronto has lost
only one League series, and that to
McGill, the probable Allan Cup
champions of the Dominion.

team of five years ago, the Varsity
has a squad of veterans who fit to-
gether into one of the smoothest
working sextets in amateur hockey.
Coach Bailey carries a 14-man
squad including three high-scoring
forward lines, four top-notch de-
fensemen, and a pair of eagle eyed
goalies who have allowed an average
of less than three goals per game
despite the stiffest kind of competi-
Toronto has lost only four games
this season, two to McGill, and one
each to the University of Montreal
and Harvard. The Varsity has piled
up 59 goals in 12 games for an aver-
age of practically 5 markers per tilt
-an average which, incidentally,
Captain Vic Heyliger and his mates
will have to lower if they expect to
hang up a victory Saturday.
Average Is High
The Wolverines can look back on
their own statistics with pride, how-
ever. Of 16 games played with the
best hockey clubs in this part of the
United States and Canada, Michigan
has skated off the ice with 11 wins
and four losses. The Wolverines
have banged home 66 tallies in those
16 contests to give themselves the
very presentable average of just bet-
ter than four goals per game.
Saturday night's clash will in all

probability set a new attendance
mark for hockey games here if the
management will allow standing
room all over the old Coliseum, but
the crowd will be nothing new to
Toronto. They play before assemblies
that average well over 2,000 and for
;heir final game with McGill in Mon-
treal drew more than 12,000 wild eyed
rooters into the forum there.
The Toronto game is the first step
in-the plans of athletic powers to de-
velop a regular seasonal rivalry be-
tween Michigan and the highly tout-
ed sextets of the east. That such a
rivalry could be established not only
as a major drawing card, but as a
financial asset as well, is believed by
many officials.
No reserved seats will be sold for
the Michigan-Toronto clash, and as
a result, fans who want to see this
intersectional clash between two
great teams representing the east and
the west, will be wise to take their
supper with them to the creaky old
