Five Of Nation's Best Traekien
Comipete In Indiana Meet Here

Hoosier Hurdle Flash

Michigan should have little trouble'
in maintaining its unbeaten dual meet
record for the year intact in Satur-
day's meet at Ferry Field with Indi-
ana but- at least five of the events
will offer real competition for the]
edification of the home fans.
That is not. just the opinion of
this chronicler but it is the straight
dope from Coach Charley Hoyt of the
Wolverines. Encouraged by yester-
day's sunny weather, Charley waxed
enthusiastic over the meet.
Dashes Will Be Close
"You know," he said, "besides great+
prospective races in the two dashes,
the- quarter, the half-mile, and the
mile Saturday these people will be
seeing five of the best trackmen in
the country."
.Four of those five are metubers of
Michigan's team. Bill Watson is the
best weight man in the country, hav-
ing put the shot further than any one
else. Ralph Schwarzkopf is unques-
tionably one of the best at two-miles.
Elmer Gedeon is just about tops in
the high hurdles, and Warren Breid-

enbach, whose sub-:48 quarter at the
Penn Relays senthim up to the select
group of quartermilers in the nation.
Trutt Runs Mile
The other outstanding nationally
known track man is Mel Trutt of the
Hoosiers. Trutt will probably double
in the mile and half-mile. A member
of the last two All-Big Ten teams,
Trutt has run 4:12 over the mile dis-
tance and 1:53 in the half. He was
third in the national collegiates last
year in the mile.
The fireworks in the sprints will
be offered by Jim Allen and Fred
Elliott of Indiana, against Al Smith
of Michigan. Allen 'finished just be-
hind Smith in the Indoor Conference
60- and has done :09.8 in the 100-
and Elliott has done :21 over the 220-
Roy Cochran, sophomor -flash off
the Hoosiers, will give the Michigan
trio of Jack Leutritz, Ross Faulkner.
and Phil Balyeat plenty of trouble in
the 440-. Schwarzkopf vs. Trutt in
the mile and Jester, Davidson, and
Hogan vs. Trutt in the half are the
other standout races of the day.

Star Frosh Duo Of Westfall, Ostroot

practice completed, stocky Bob West- l
fall rates as the number one fullback
and, at Fred Janke's old left tackle'
post, freshman George Ostroot ap-
pears to hold the advantage.
The hard driving Westfall, a for-1
mer Ann Arbor High star, has taken:
advantage of sophomore fullback
E Howard Mehaffey's leg injury this
spring to make his bid, and the
coaches are impressed-impressed to
the extent that Mehaffey will have
to put up a terrific fight to win back
that starting assignment.
Ostroot's security at left tackle, onE
the other hand, depends upon the
condition of the veteran Roland Sa-
villa whose bum foot is still a doubt-

ful quantity. If Savilla remains out, Several other new fades will greet

starting lineup appears to be Bill
Melzow, good-looking Flint guard,
but right now Milo Sukup, Ralph
Heikkinen's under-study last season,
ranks him.
Elsewhere, last fall's regulars hold
sway. Capt. Archie Kodros at cen-
ter, Bill Smith at right tackle, Ralph
Fritz at left guard and ends Ed Fru-
tig and John Nicholson would com-
plete the regular line. Paul Kromer,
Tom Harmon and Forest Evashevski
are expected to take care of the re-

two more freshmen who may break
into the second string line.
Joe Rogers, junior end who was out
of school last year, is expected to see
a lot of action especially since Vince
Valek has left the University. Whitey
Frauman, a sophomore, has also put
in a strong bid for a regular end post.
That's how things stand now, but
the annual spring intra-squad scrim-
mage scheduled for May 13 at the
Stadium will furnish the big test.
That's when the Westfalls and the
Ostroots will be on the spot.

Ann Arbor Offers
Great Possibilities For
The Photographer ...
For the undergrad who takes, de-
light in reliving the days he spent at
college, there is no better tool than
the camera and, as a matter of fact,
no better college than Michigan. Here,
there is a wide variety of architecture,
from the modern gothic of the Law
Quad to tradition-steeped University
Hall; there are pleasant plains amid
a picturesque Huron River drive and
there are rolling hills in the distance.
Equipment may be modest and can
be purchased reasonably at the local
camera stores. For general outdoor
work a simple Brownie will do - and
a cheap, light or medium yellow filter
will put snap into any picture.
There is no easy road to success.
Best advice to the uninitiated is per-
sistent picture snapping - take your
camera to the picnic, on the Sunday
walk or on the hay ride; snap pic-
tures of the fellows in your house;
the girl friend against billowy clouds
-but above all take loads of pictures.
After playing about outdoors with
an inexpensive model, the true ama-
teur will decide he's missing a lot of
good shots -in the classroom, in his
rooming house, at the football game,
or Iat an informal dance. At this
time, if he's got his heart in photog-
raphy he'll give up a dance or a movie
once in a while or forego a new pair
of slacks he has been eyeing so long
and get a miniature camera, or some-
thing slightly larger with a fast lens.
Here again the local stores offer good
buys-in both new and used equipment.
This week's Michigras and the pa-
rade will test the ability of any ama-
teur. For those who own "minies"
with a fast lens (anywhere from f:2.9
to 1.5) modern fast film like Super
Pan Press or Super XX will make the
task in Yost Field Hous easy.
He'll find himself faced with a
problem when it comes 6o finishing
his films if he's a prolific shutter-
snapper and may decide he'd like to
set up his own darkroom. Unfortu-
nately the toilet in his rooming house
is hardly the place and nowhere else
can he have running water. When
a sufficient number of hardened fans
finally bump into the same wall,
theyre liable to form a student .cam-
era club, one of the campus's greatest
needs for the prospective photogra-
pher and cooperate to set up a dark-
room with the best paraphernalia.
One of the too-little known courses
is a two-hour course given in the
engineering college, tucked away in
the surveying department. Professor
Young who teaches this elementary
course in basic photography does a
creditable job in explaining the tech-
nique, the, science and the art in
photography. There's a wel -equipped
lab for the course in which the be-
ginner can get a good start.
As a source of spare change to buy
better equipment the camera is a
means to the end. Friends are only
too willing to pay for pleasant candid
shots or for application photos they
may need. The Collegiate Digest pays
well for unusual story-telling pictures.
At least three student publications
offer the better lens wielder a good

chance to take many pictures and to
use good equipment. All three of

'Ti'l Ne'er Forget My CollegeDays....

THE OLD SAYING that photographs of today are tomorrow's treasures may
sound somewhat sentimental. But there's a lot of truth in it. And there's a lot of
truth in the fact that, although you'll never forget your college days, you'll remem-
ber them better with photographs of friends and familiar scenes.
The next few weeks are a climax to an eventful school year and are going to be
packed with picture possibilities - scenes you won't want to forget--scenes that
pictures won't let you forget.
You will find that photography is a f ascinating Spring hobby. It is easy to learn
the art of picture taking. Whether you plan to buy a complete outfit or a roll of
film or merely want some expert advise we suggest you drop in some day soon at any
of these stores. They are anxious to serve you in making Springtime camera-time in
Ann Arbor.
