Big Ten's Best
Hoyt Sees Meet As Chance
To Compare His Team
With Loop Opponents
The University of Michigan track
team entrains at 5:15 p.m. today for
the Illinois Relays classic Saturday
at Champaign. The handpicked Wol-
verine squad will number 22 men.
Victors by top-heavy scores over
Michigan State and O.S.U. in their
only two indoor dual meets, the Hoyt-
men are among those favored at
Champaign where their competition
will include all but Wisconsin and
Iowa of the Big Ten.
Meet Tests Varsity
The Illinois affair is regarded by
Coach Hoyt as a scale by which he
can judge to some extent the strength
of his aggregation in comparison with
the other loop opponents who will be
gunning for the Wolverines' indoor
crown at Chicago next week.
Besides the Big Ten teams there
will also be performers from 32 in-
stitutions to the number of better
than 400, hailing from as far west as
Kansas and Oklahoma, presenting a
brilliant field in the 10 special events
and eight relay races.
Topping the program will be the
four university relays. Michigan wil:
be entered in all four with a better
than even shot at copping the titles
in each. Michigan will also presen
Gedeon, Kelley, Olmsted and Kutsche
in the 320 yard shuttle hurdle relay
The outstanding Wolverine quar-
tet will be in the distance medley in
which the distances are a quarter
half, three quarters of a mile an
mile in that order.
Distance Men Listed
At the 440-yard distance either
Waldo Abbot or Bill Aigler will start
Bill Buchanan is slated for the hal
mile leg, Harold Davidson the three
quarters and "Rambling" Ralph
Schwarzkopf the full mile.
Running in a time-trial this wees
with Schwarzkopf, Davidson ran the
three quarter distance in 3:04.9.
which, besides giving the Wolverines
a terrific time for that leg of the
medley, shows that the wiry Michigan
distance man may have the key to a
world record mile before his college
career is ended in view of the 304.2
which Glenn Cunningham carded for
the same distance last night as he
sped to his 4:04.4 in a paced mile at
Dartmouth.
Davidson will also run in the 1,500
meters and Schwarzkopf will seek to
avenge his beating at the hands of
Buckeye Paul Benner in the two-mile

Trackmen View Illinois, Butler
Relays As Fun Amidst Business

By ROY HEATH
With their only indoor dual meets
safely tucked away by decisive mar-
gins, the Wolverine track team now
prepares to mix business with pleas-
urp.
The business will be their coming
battle to retain their Big Ten indoor
crown at Chicago on March 12. The
pleasure will be their tour of the
"gravy league" starting when they
appear at the Illinois Relays Satur-
day at Champaign and ending in the
season's indoor finale, the Butler Re-
lays at Indianapolis, two week-ends
hence.
What A Grind!
This "gravy league" junketing is
hard for the sweating cinder addicts
to take. To begin with it means a
chance to leave Ann Arbor. After that
it keeps getting tougher. It means
gruelling travel on first class trains,
nights spent in the dank confines of
A-1 hostels.
And the food. The boys would
probably starve if it wasn't for those
steaks and rolls served up little better
Uhan mother could do at her best.
Let it be understood that it takes
pioneering blood to travel from one
place to another like that.
The food however means practical-
iy nothing in comparison with the
loot that accrues from such roaming.
The vandals returning from their his-d
toric sack of Rome would look like

five thumbed pick-pockets in the
same room with a Michigan track
team.
The sponsors for indoor track car-
nivals such as the Butler and Illinois
classics seem to be in competition
to see who can give away the most
gold watches, pen sets, medals rang-
ing from gold to brass and sundry
other bric-a-brac.
Prizes - And How
One runner of bygone years is said
to have gone mad from the con-
stant ticking of the veritable watch-
works he had picked up in the course
of his travels during his collegiate
career. It was a cuckoo clock picked
up in a special sack race which fi-
nally caused his brains to crumble.
The sack race brings us down to
the special events. While the afore-
mentioned sponsors are more than
generous with the stars of their get-
togethers, this commendable open
handedness cannot be attributed to
large heartedness. Business is the
word for it and new records make
business good.
Customers Always Right
The cash clients are always appre-
ciative of record performances, not so
much because they know the differ-
en ce but because they like to say
"I watched it." The customer is al-
ways right since he keeps rust off the
turnstiles, hence records there shall
be. If the mark in a strictly McCoy
event ,is too formidable a more sus-
ceptible one will be substituted.
It doesn't make much difference
to the competitors, noneat nall to the
pooh-bahs who put the thing on and
the customers are happy. Besides it's
all in good clean fun.

With the dual meet swim season a thing of the past, the Big Ten's aquatic aces have settled down to rigid
drills for the Conference meet which will be held this year in the New Trier High School pool in Winnetka,
Ill. on March 11 and 12. Pictu ed above are a quintet of men who are expected to do well by themselves and
their teams with point-winning efforts. Michigan's Kirar will defend his 50- and 100-yard titles, and will
also swim a leg on the title-holding Wolverine 400-yard free-style relay team. Bob Allen, Iowa breast-
stroker, placed in last year's meet, and improved perfc-rmances this season label him as a threat in his event.

Teams. Seldom
Win Them All
Regardless of who wins the Big Ten'
basketball championship this year
they will be following in the footsteps
of a majority of their predecessors in
one respect-they will not have sur-
vived their Conference schedule with
an unblemished record.
Unlike football, a Big Ten basket-
ball winner seldom goes through a
season without having at least one de-
feat marked up against it. Only four
times in Conference history have title
