Here A Matmen Meet
Ihks CIn Columbus
Charlie Hoyt's latest track crea-
tion will receive its first taste of'
rough-shod Big Ten competition to-
night when number one Wolverine
rival of the cinder lanes, Ohio State,
invades the Field House.
Under the astute guidance of Larry
Snyder, a man of determination and
resource whose greatest joy is win
over Michigan, the Bucks take the
track an exceedingly formidable foe
set to wreak all the havoc possible,
win, loose, or draw.
With a decisive win in their first
meet safely tucked in the record book,
the Wolverines, under a no less deft
Charlie Hoyt and appearing some-
what more powerful over-all intend
to preserve their Conference title
dreams yet a while longer regardless
of what Ohio State feelings they
have to trample.
Heading the Buckeye expditionary
forces is Olympian Dave Albritton,
co-holder of the world standard in
the high jump who also works with
considerably less brilliance in tP
high and low hurdles where he will
run afoul of Michigan's crack timber1
team of Gedeon and Kelley.
440, 880 Toughest
The most crucial events of the meet
for the Hoytmen appear to be the
440 and 880. In the shorter race
Doug Hayes and Ross Faulkner face
the smooth running veteran Harley
Howells. Credited with a sub-48
second race outdoors where he is at
his best, Howells teamed with sopho:
more "Silent" Knight will give the
Michigan runners a strenuous eve-
Another veteran-sophomore com-
bination faces Michigan in the 880
at which distance the O.S.U. per-
formers are Dick Squire, second in
the outdoor Big Ten meet last year,
and Bob Cooperrider. Attempting to
split the Buck combine will be Tom
Jester and Bill Buchanan who last
week finished 1-2 with inches be-
tween them.
Tn the mile and two-mile Larry
Snyder has a number of .onscientious
but uninspired performers at his cis-
posal. Headed by Bill Benner and
Jim Whittaker,. the Bukeyes will be
hard put to do better than place and
show against Michigan's sophomore
distance ace, Ralph Schwarzkopf in
the two-mile and Harold Davidson in
the mile.
Watson A Point-Getter
Big Bill Watson may add five points
in the sprint to his customary five in
the shot. Running for Ohio, Paul
Garrett, who ran second in a 6.5
heat when the Bucks trimmed Il-
linois last week and Bob Lewis, third
in the Conference 220 last season but
a slow breaker indoors, may be able to
head the ponderous Negro star.
Practically a sure thing in the pole
vault is Jim Kingsley, Michigan's
slightly built up-and-over artist who
topped 13 feet last week and has
shown himself capable of a 13 foot 6
inch effort since. Good but not quite
good enough for Albritton is Wolver-
ine Wes Allen who nevertheless will
give the great Buck a stiff battle.
Never beaten until the tape is brok-
en but lacking a Birleson or an Os-
good to take the stick for them the
Michigan rally will have to show a
considerable reduction of time elapsed
to nose out Sulzman, Robinson,
Knight and Howells in the finale.
The meet gets under way at 7:30
p.m .and will include, besides the
regular events, the finals of the Inter-
Fraternity half -mle relays and a spe-
cial 12 pound shot put in which Bill
Watson will be aiming at the 60 foot
71f inch world's record.
Hatmen Favored
Seeking their sixth consecutive win
of the season, Coach Cliff Keen and
his Wolverine matmen will face a

strong Ohio State team tonight on
the hdome mats of the Buckeyes at
Due to the slight shoulder injury
of co-captain Earl Thomas, and re-
cent illness of Paul Cameron, the
Michigan squad will not be at full
potential strength when they come
up against the Scarlet delegation.
Speicher After Seventh
Co-captain John Speicher, Coach
Keen's entry in the 118 pound class
will be after his seventh straight win
of the season when he comes against
Varney of the host team. Going on
the past performances of these two
men Speicher should be able to start
the Wolverine's score off with a de-
cision and more than ikely a pin.
Should Paul Cameron be unable
to carry, the Wolverine colors in the
126 pound class, Jim Laing will get
the call to woi k in this division. This
would be Laig's first appearance in
a meet and in either case the Michi-
gan man will come up against Hall
of Ohio State.

Big Crowd Expected
From the size of the previous crowd,
there can be no doubt that the Fifth
Street Coliseum will be anything but
tightly jammed with another mass of
vociferous out-for-blood fans.
The absence of a second line center
hindered Michigan a great deal and
will again be a major problem. With
Everett Doran ineligible, Les Hill-

post. George Cooke was put at right

great deal of stamina.

Lash's Successor ..
They contend at Indiana that Don
Lash's immediate successor has been
ound in the person of Tommy Deck-
ard, slender distance man. Against
)hio State a fortnight ago, he ne-
gotiated the mile in 4:15.5 and came
back 40 minutes later to do the two
mile in 9:31.5. Last Saturday, he
shaved his two-mile time down to
9:27.8, and clipped more than a sec-
>nd from Lash's Indiana Field House
record in the mile with a 4:12.8 mark.
Deckard will have to keep whittling
n his two-mile time before he en-
counters Ralph Schwarzkopf, Michi-

the tlackhawks, etc. So geaver

gentry that he received his un-

tonsils. But the operation will
have to await its turn as he is
busy now with a throat infection.
