Squad Departs

Michigan Seeks
Sixth Straight
Gedeon, 'Watson Favored
To Win In Individuals ;
Hoyt To Take 22 Men
Michigan's 22 man track squad will
leave today for the Butler Relays, fa-
vorites to retain the team champion-
ship the Wolverines have won for the
past five years in a row,
Michigan will enter four strong
teams in the university relay section
of the Carnival. The one-mile relay
team will probably reign as the fa-
vorite as a result of its Conference
record breaking 3:18.9 last week at
The one-mile quartet finished
fourth last year as Pittsburgh, with its
John Woodruff, won, but the Wol-
verines have been strengthened no
little by the addition of sophomores
Phil Ialyeat and Warren Breiden-
bach to veterans Ross Faulkner and
Doug Hayes.
Two-Mile Team Defends Title
The only Michigan relay team
which will be defending a Butler
championship is the two-mile ag-
gregation. Tom Jester, Dye Hogan,
and Hod Davidson were all members
of last year's winning team and soph-
omore Art Cline is capable of filling
Bill Buchanan's slot.
The medley relay team lost out in
a tough finish to Indiana last year
but the Hoytmen appear to have a
great chance for victory if nothing
goes wrong.
Leutritz Runs
Sophomore Jack Leutritz is booked
to run the first leg, a quarter-mile,
and he will be followed in order by
a veteran lineup. Tom Jester will
run the half, Hod Davidson the three-
quarters' and Ralph Schwarzkopf the
anchor mile.
The four-mile team has two sopho-
mores in its ranks in Ed Barrett and
Karl Wisner. Brad Heyl and Schwarz-
kopf, booked for his second mile stint
of the night, make up the remainder
of the team which will be seeking
revenge for the ignominy of a third
place last year.
- Strong In Individuals
In addition to the team events
Michigan will have strength galore
in the individual events. Elmer
Gedeon in the high and low hurdles,
and Capt. Bill Watson in the shot put
are favorites to win their specialties,
while Don Canham in the high jump
and Al Smith in the 6Oyard dash
may, by virtue of their surprise sec-
ond places in the Big Ten meet, come
through with a win.
Watson will meet with stiff com-
petition from Elmer Hackney of
Kansas State who defeated Bill at
the Illinois Relays earlier this year.
Canham will meet up with Bob
Diefenthaler of Illinois who beat him
at Chicago, and 'team-mate Wes Al-
len, if the injured Wolverine star is
able to throw off the affects of sev-
eral weeks layoff due to an injured
knee. Smith will get most of his
competition from Wilbur Greer of
Michigan State, last year's winner in
Other Michigan entries in individu-
al events are Stan Kelley and Jeff
Hall in the hurdles, Watson in the
broad jump in which he placed sec-
ond last year, Carl Culver in the 60-
and broad jump, and Bob Hook in
the shot pgt.
