WINNETKA, Ill., March 10.-
(Special to The Daily)-Michigan's
squad of 16 natators worked out
twice today in preparation for the
trials in the Big Ten swimming meet
tomorrow afternoon and night in the
beautiful New Trier High School pool
To fortify his charges, Coach Matt
Mann brought along Baker Bryant,
a letterman last year who has been
inactive this season, but who will
attempt to add an extra point in the
440-yard event and possibly anchor
the medley relay. Bryant's presence
in the quarter-mile swim will enable
Ed Hutchens to conserve his energy
for the all-important free style relay.
Although his team is in top shape,
Coach Mann, full aware of Ohiof
State's potency, declined to predict
the outcome of the meet, saying only
that he expected "a good meet." The
Buckeyes, denied the Big Ten swim
crown since the inception of Confer-
mce competition some 27 years ago;
are favored to win their first title.
Trials in all events are slated for
tomorrow, with the finals on the card
for Saturday night. Wolverine hopes
received a slight setback when it was
learned that Danny Zehr. Northwes-
tern's great backstroker, the man on
whom Michigan dependent to defeat
Ohio State's Bill Neunzig in the dor-
sal swim, will not compete in the
CHICAGO, March 12.-(Special to
the Daily)-The attention of track
fandom the country over focused on
the Windy City today as an army of
spike-shod Big Ten cindermen as-
sembled here prepared to battle it
out for team and individual honors.
There was small prospect of the in-
door crown, worn for five consecutive
years by the Michigan Wolverines,
undergoing a resizing as Charlie
Hoyt's undefeated charges ruled fa-
vorites to defend their title success-
Hoosiers, Badgers Look Strong
Undismayed by Michigan's favored
spot in the pre-meet lineups, Wiscon-
sin and Indiana moved in with every
intention of giving the Wolverines a
going over, perhaps of carrying it as
far as relieving them of their title
while the smaller fry are primed to
walk off with a few individual titles.
Only three indoor titleholders sur-
vived graduation to defend their laur-
els. They are Michigan's mighty
Negro shot put star, Bill Watson; the
Ilini timber topper, Jack Robinson;
and Chuck Fenske of Wisconsin, who
twice beat Indiana's flyer, Don Lash,
for 'the gold medal in the classic

Bob Osgood, in the 1937 meet, Rob-
inson is slated on the charts of many
observers to pass his hurdle crown on
to bsgood's lanky successor, Elmer
Gedeon, who outraced him at the
Illinois Relays lat week.
Watson In Sprints
The other two, Fenske and Watson,
seem to have a more tenacious grip
on their titles. Both have added events
to their repertories. Watson, the
"one man track team" has taken over
the sprint chore for the Wolverines
while Fenske added the 880 to his list
of Conference events in an effort to
garner an extra point or two for
No snap, however, will be Fenske's
job of beating off Hoosier Tommie
Deckard, provided the diminutive In-
diana foot racer is in top shape. Al-
though he has carded close to 4:10
for the distance this season, Deckard
appeared far off his usual form last
week at Champaign when he was

of the Wolverines will be out for re-

Hoosiers. The Indiana star has held
the title for the past two years. These
men will find the way to the title
a bit rough due to the appearance
of a sophomore from Minnesota
named Dale Hanson.
Thomas May Repeat
Willard Duffy also of the Hoosiers
will seek to regain the title he had
at 126 pounds in 1936. Last year
Al Sapora of Illinois was Conference
champion. Paul Cameron of Coach
Keen's men, will use all his ability
and power to take this title for him-
Co-CaptainsThomas should repeat
his win of last year a-nd bring the
135 pound title back to the Wolverine
school. His greatest opposition will
come from Archie Deutschman of the
Illini. Joe Roman of Indiana should
be counted on to pick up some points
for Coach Thom.
The largest number of entries will
be in the 145 pound class. Culberson
of Minnesota, Finewald of Chicago
and Mindlin of Ohio State are favored
to take the top positions. However
Harold Nichols of the Wolverines
will be right on the heels of these
men as will Seymour Weiss of the

Michigan's second title should come

he takes the 165 pound class without
much trouble. ;Sam Hyde of the Hoo-
siers will also be near the top. Dick
Tasch of the local matmen will also
pick up some points, but lack of
experience will be his drawback.
At 175 pounds El Valorz of the Ma-

he was runner up in last year's Con-

will cause the veteran some trouble
this time coming from Don Nichols

Leading the heavyweight class will
be Clifton Gustafson, captain of the
Minnesota team. Close behind him
comes Charles McDaniel of Indiana.
