To Keep Title
This Weekend


As Good As Won..
EIGHT or nine years ago, he has
forgotten just when, Phil Dia-
mond came down to the Field House
and announced to the irritation of
all that by his calculations, Indiana
would win the Big Ten indoor track
meet 28 to 27.
Such unmitigated brass was not
to be tolerated. There was a general
hubub over the statement of the
smiling, hatless German professor,
who has adopted the study of track
as a minor in the academic field.
An expert timer, a keen spectator,
a close friend of Coach Charley
Hoyt, Diamond had joined the track
entourage as a general handyman
and friend of the boys. But where
did he get this business about Michi-
gan losing the Conference title?
Michigan did not come in second in
Conference track meets. I
Well, they finally held the
meet and the results went some-
thing like this: Indiana, first,
with 27 15/16 points; Michigan,
second, with 27 points. Mr. Dia-
mond showed up at track prae-
tice the following Monday, sans
"I told you so" and with no vin-
dictiveness. But the boys, es-
pecially the lords of the press,
bladnt forgotten the cahmny
which had been heaped upon
this outspoken gentleman. He
immediately became honored as
a master prognosticator. Phil
Diamond had lost his amateur
His repute thus enhanced Diamond
continued to predict the outcome of
Conference track meets, still "just for
fun." But the press hadn't forgotten.
His dope sheets were picked up by
the national wire services and sent
to Conference points. Detroit papers
,clamored for his stuff. But fame did
not warp Diamond's capabilities. Since
his coup, which missed by 1/16 of a
point, he has continued to hit the
nail right on the head. Only once has
he missed his shot. That was in 1936
when Indiana won a smashing upset
over Michigan in the outdoors at
"Never figured it could hap-
pen," Phil sighs. "As for my fig-
ures for this year, they're very
conservative. Probably too con-
servative. Why even Charley Hoyt
has looked them over without
objecting too seriously. I "have
had to compile two sets of calu-
lations, one including Wes Allen
and the other excluding him. end
then, who can tell how high Bill
Watson will jump. Anyway after
the qualifying round Friday night,
I can tell you almost to the
point how they'll finish."
SUNDAY morning, according to Dia-
mond, you'll read the following
score in the papers. Michigan 39
(with Allen) or 36 (without); Wis-
consin 34 or 32 (again depending on
Mr. Allen; Indiana 19; Ohio State
14; Iowa 13%; Chicago 9 or 10; Illi-
nois, Northwestern, and Purdue 7;
and Minnesota 1.
