Tigers Get Word
From T he Baron
LAKELAND, Fla., March 3--(P)-
With Boots Poffenberger heard from
at last, with Pinky Higgins in town,
and with cool, brisk weather to en-
courage a long, hard workout, the
Detroit Tigers training camp today
looked more like a workshop than a
summer resort.
With Higgins in camp, only a few
Tigers had yet to show up. Among
these are Hank Greenberg, Charlie
Gehringer, Bill Rogell, Archie Mc-

Kain, Pete Fox and Dixie Walker-
and of course, Poffenberger.
Today Manager Del Baker received
a telegram from the belated Baron
saying that he had been delayed by
business in Williamsport, Md.
McKain is snowbound in Minnesota,
while the remainder of the squad is'
not scheduled to report until March 7.
Higgins, the heavy hitting third
baseman acquired from the Boston
Red Sox in a trade last winter, took
a light workout today, and Mark
Christman, who guarded third base
last year, took turns with him on the
Frank Secory, outfielder from
'Grand Haven, Mich., formerly with
Beaumont, put a couple of drives

workout and became the star of the

Trackmen Swamp Ohio, 73'To 22 .. .
AN ARBOR, March 3--Michigan's mighty men of the track, monarchs
of all they survey, concluded their indoor dual meet season here tonight
and looked toward Chicago and the Big Ten championships next weekend.
In a tremendous exhibition of power and balance, the Wolverines over-
whelmed the previously unbeaten forces of Ohio State, 73 to 22, while 5000
Field House spectators voiced enthusiastic approval.
Sweeping along the brilliant trail that has placed them among the
leaders in collegiate trackdom, the well buttressed forces of Coach
Charles B. Hoyt kept their dual meet slate unblemished and strength-
ened their position as top-heavy favorites for another Conference
Ohio State, chief rival to Wolverine supremacy, was hampered by illness,
but even at full strength the Buckeyes were out of their class. In the words
of Ohio Coach Larry Snyder:

"Just say Michigan is twice as good as anyone else, and let it go
at that."
One record was broken and two were equalled as the varsity tightened
the last bolt and oiled up the final squeaky joint before next weekend's
climax event.
Ohio's :vile relay team, easily the class of the Conference, cracked the
Field House record of 3:19.8 set by Michigan this year with a beautifully run
3:19.1 performance. Bob Lewis led off, he was followed by Art Pagel, Jack
Sulzmann, and Harley Howells. Michigan's team of Warren Breidenbach,
Doug Hayes, Phil Balyeat, and Ross Faulkner wound up ten yards behind.
The indomitable Elmer Gedeon catapulted his lanky fraime over
both the high and low hurdles in record tying time, the same time which
Gedeon reeled off n the Notre Dame meet. Big Elmer took exactly :08
seconds to complet.' the 65-yard high hurdle event and :07.2 seconds to
do his duty in the 1 vws.
Outside of a sprit t victory by Conference sprint champion Bob Lewis
of Ohio in the 60 and a handy win in the quarter by another titleholder,
Harley Howells, it was Michigan's night from start to finish.
Lewis shot home in :06.4 to nose out Al Smith and Norm Purucker
while Howells, the man to beat at Chicago, reeled off a :49.4 quarter to best
Faulkner and Breidenbach in that order.
The rest is all colored Maize and Blue. Dye Hogan copped the half
in his usual steady fashion, Karl Wisner won the mile, and Ralph,
Schwarzkopf, recuperating from a flu seige, coasted in first in the two'
mile in 9:26.
)apt. Bill Watson was good for 51 feet in the shot and a comfortable
first, Wes Allen's six foot three inch leap clinched the high jump. Dave
Cushing soared 12 feet six' inches to add another first to Michigan's top-
heavy total in the pole vault.
Questioned after the meet, Coach Charlie Hoyt stated :
"The boys did very well. I was pleased with every one of them and
am looking forward to the Conference next week."
Asked as to a predictio; on the outcome of the big meet, Hoyt answered:
"It will be a good me t, interesting all the way. We have a chance."
The summaries:
Mile run.: Won by Wi ner (M); second, Davidson (M); third, Eisen-
hart (0). Time 4:20.
60-yard dash: Won bS Lewis (0); Smith (M), second; Purucker (M)

NO, it didn't happen here' my friends. Lest you be wondering how we can
predict the outcome of a track meet that has been officially cancelled,
let me ease you'r qualms.
The Michigan Ohio State meet, called off by the Buckeyes WOULD
have finished this way had it been run off. Who says so? Why, that demon
prognosticator Prof. Phil 7tamond, who simply used this as a warming up
exercise yesterday, in preparation for his impending Conference predic-
tions, which are usually uncanny in their accuracy.

Al Chadwick, Michigan wing,
provided a lot of excitement at the
last meeting with the Illinois sex-
tet, having been on the receiving
end of no less than four penalties.
The Champaign lads will probably
be a little careful in their dealings
with Al when the two conference
teams clash tonight at the Coli-
Hockey Team
Faces Illinois

Sextet Hopes To
Txiuiph Over


(Continued from Page 1)

Toronto a hard battle last Wednesday
night. Along with Chadwick in the
forward line will be George Cooke
and Capt. Les Hillberg. At present
Hillberg is the leading scorer on the
This will be the last conference
game in which Cooke and Hillberg
will see action. These two men are
the only seniors on this year's hockey
Taking over the two defense po-
sitions will be Larry Calvert and
Chuck Ross. Both these sophomores
were very instrumental in keeping the
potent University of Toronto from
running up a large score, as was ex-
pected by most of the local followers.
In his first encounter with the
Illini "Spike" James came through
without having a Redman slip the
puck past him for a goal. Going by
the recent performances of Michi-
gan's star goalie, the visiting team
will find it doubly difficult to make a
tally off the six-foot goalie.
Although not making as many trips
to the penalty box as Chadwick, big
Ed limber was able to account for two
of the four Illini penalties. Zimber
will be in one of the defense posts,
ready to meet any aggressive attack
of the Wolverines.




Game time:

8:30 p.m.
