Team To Meet Point Edward Here Tonigh


Jumping The Gun . . .
THE TRACK: "A walkaway! Huh,
not in my book. It willabe a
tough, closely contested meet all the
way. In my book, Michigan and Wis-
consin will tie at 33 points." The
speaker-Coach Charles B. Hoyt.
The mat: "We have a chance. It
will be between Michigan and In-
diana all the way. We are at full
strength except for Butch Jordqn
who is far out of conditions. If we
pick up enough falls, we will win."
As spoken by Coach Cliff Keen.
The pool: "We'll take it. Sure, it's
not easy to come right out and say it,
but I think we will. We have a great
bunch of kids, ind they're out to win."
Ennunciated by Coach Matt Mann.
And there you have what might
be called a progression in opti-
mism. Charlie Hoyt-conserva-
tive, careful, rarely encouraging,
but not a chronic worrier. Cliff
Keen-usually pessimistic, never
certain, always worrying. Matt
M a n n - effervescent, genial,
bursting with confidence. The
three by their very nature punc-
tuate the opinions.
Yet in all three cases there is a fac-
tual background which transcends the
persofnalities that have undoubtedly
shaped these views. To a cursory
appraisal of the problems whih the
three men face.
HOYT who refuses to predict no
matter how long the odds may be,
faces a new challenge in the entry
of Wisconsin, a rapidly rising Con-
ference track power. The Badgers
boast of some of the top talent in the
Conference and in several events are
actually beyond reach.
Take Walter Mehl, the Badgers'
brilliant distance man, for example,.
Defending two mile champion both
indoors and outdoors, Mehl cracked
the Conference and collegiate record
at Columbus last spring with a 9:10.4
performance. Unless Ralph Schwartz-
kopf of Michigan outdoes himself,
this is a cinch Badger first. Mehl
will also compete in the mile, and
Hoyt is weighing the advisability of
countering by putting Schwartzkopf
in the same event. Still Mehl must
be rated as a first place winner.
Taking those 10 points, you
can safely add nine more. Milt
Padway and Bob Gardner of the
Badgers are 13 foot plus pole
vaulters and should finish one-
two. Padway soared 14 feet 1
inches in the Minnesota dual
meet this year.
The high jump is a question mark.
Wes Allen of Michigan the favorite
is still limping with a knee injury, and
Capt. Bill Watson hasn't done much
jumping since he went 6 feet 5 inches
outdoors last May. Riley Best and
Gardner of Wisconsin have gone 6
feet>2%/ inches and that means more
points, especially if Wes is out.
In the hurdles, Ed Smith of
Wisconsin has gone 60 yards in
:07.5 and while talk of his beat-
ing Elmer Gedeon seems a little
out of order, he must be counted
among the point winners. He
finished second to Gedeon in the
120 highs at Columbus. Another
Badger hurdler Bob Brandt may
be a factor, and thus Stan Kel-
ley's work in this event takes on
a new importance.'
Add Frank Kauffman, second in-
doors and third outdoors, in the
sprints, and Bill Malisch, third out-
doors, in the shot, and your Badger
total increases.
Charley adds them up to 33. His
addition also gives Michigan 33. Phil
Diamond will be in later this week
with his calculations. And Sunday
you'll have the answer. That's Daily

service, _my friends.
NOW to Mr. Keen's squad and their
outlook. Assuming an average
amount of falls, Michigan should win
if ..
Capt. Harold Nichols, brother Don
Nichols, and Butch Jordan take
firsts; Jim Mericka and Frank Mor-
gan, seconds; and Bill Combs, third.
That gives Michigan 22 points, one
more than Indiana is booked to
Mericka at 136 pounds will
up with Archie Deutschman of
Illinois, favored to win the na-
tional title. Morgan, a good shot
for first place, dust first dispoe
of his old rival Chauncey Mc-
Daniel of Indiana. Combs is con-
servatively listed behind Lazzeri
of Indiana and Bond of Illinois.
Harold Nichols should win at 145
pounds without too much trouble,
and brother Don's only obstacle will
be that tough Chris Traicoff of In-
diana. Getting down to Jordan,
Butch would take it without too much
exertion given normal physical con-
dition. In his present shape, even
