Michigan? . .. But Definitely .. .
A PROFESSOR, OF GERMAN, a recognized "swing ' authority, and a
track prognosticator par excellence takes over this corner today. The
contributor is Phil Diamond, the affable gentleman with the hot record
collection, the unerring stop watch, and the pleasing voice that calls out the
times and places over the p.a. system at the home track meets.
Track is more than a hobby to Phil. It's practically an obsession..
So keen is his insight into this branch of sport, that local writers
have long been at swords' points over whom shall get Phil's annual
predictions on the Conference track meet. A systemn was finally
devised whereby all factions would be appeased. Phil now distributes
his predictions according to a seniority list with each writer getting
a crack at the top position. We weren't in the number one spot this
time, but we got the dope sheet in time to pass it on to you prior to
the meet. Activities start his afternoont and here's what Phil has to
"It's Michigan by almost another walkaway," says Diamohd. "I j1ust
can't see anyone else.
That from the average prognosticator would probably be taken as so
much of the hoi-poloi. But not when 'Phil says it. Only once has his dope
sheet gone amiss. That was in 1936 when Indiana nosed out Michigan at
Columbus to annex the coveted crown.
Diamond has computed the point totals along with the individual
events. Here are his figures, and he insists th~ey're conservative:
MICHIGAN. . ... .. .. .. .. .. ..... .55
.Wisconsin. ... . ... . .. .. . .. . .. ..37
Ohio State .....................36
Chicago and Northwestern .. . .. . .. 3
New Records? . .. T o Be Sure . ..
A5 FOR RECORDS, Diamond believes new mark~s 'will be madc in the
two mile run, in which he predicts a great race between Walter Mehl
of Wisconsin and Ralph Schwarzkopf or Michigan, and in the discus. Other
possible record cracking may come in the shot, high jump, and mile relay,
