Track Champs
Garner 23Y2 Points, To
Take Title; Sigma Clii
Gets 19 To Finnish 2nd
Phi Gamma Delta deposed the Phi
Delts yesterday afternoon on Ferry
Field as campus Interfraternity track
champions. The victors nosed out
the surprisingly strong Sigma Chi or-
ganization with a score of 231/4
points; Sigma Chi garnering 19; Psi
U.;14%; Phi Delta Theta, last year's
champions, 12; Chi Psi, 11; Delta
Upsilon, 10; and other houses with
diminishing scores.
This fourth annual Interfraternity
track meet was run off as planned on
Ferry Field in contrast to last year
when the boys who were ready to do
or die for dear old Eta Bita Pi were
forced into Yost Fieldhouse due to
inclement weather., All the houses
represented sent enthusiastic groups
of would be tracksters. The contest
was run off in perfect weather and
with a slight Westerly breeze doing
its bit to lower the times.,

Will Today's Smiles Be Saturday's Too?

Tricks to trip the thundering Gopher gridders might well be the cause
for these beaming smiles of the Wolverine's head men, Capt. Fred Janke
and Coach Fritz Crisler. Will Michigan's football warriors bring back
the Little Brown Jug? Will Crisler's boys end the four year reign of
Minnesota's eleven and appease the victory hunger of the Michigan
fans? Football fans everywhere are pondering over these questions.

as 3 to 1 in saying "it can't be

Minneapolis and vicinity is amazed
at the audacity of those who claim
Sports writers of note dismiss the
whole thing with "oh, they'll give a
good account of themselves."
Michigan and this column insist
that "it can be done." This column
predicts that "it will be done.,"
No one is quite sure. My own junior
staff wound up in a three-all tie. Yet,
in face of ifs, buts, comparative
weights, records, ad nauseum comes
a burning conviction that the Wol-
verines can do it.
They meet Minnesota tomor-
row in their first real test of the
year. Minnesota - powerful,
feared monarchs of the Big Ten
-against Michigan, trying to regain
an almost forgotten heritage.
Minnesota with a big, rugged, fast
team and power to burn. Michigan
depending on a great sophomore crew
and a veteran line. Yet, here's my rea-
son for the selection-and I haven't
forgotten the Cubs.
Michigan's line is the finest since
the "glory days" of 1933. It has shown
that in its first two encounters, and
although the opposition was admit-
tedly inferior, the line is undeniably
good. Unless Minnesota has a far
more formidable forward wall than
observers give them credit for, the
Wolverines should fight them even in
the front line, both in speed and
The Gophers have a slight edge
in backfield strength. Michigan
has no pile driving back who can
compare with Christiansen or
Buhler. Moore, if he is as good as
they say, should fight Harmon
for running honors. Yet there
the superiority ends. Evashevski
will hold his own at that blocking
post, and Gopher quarterback
Faust will have a tough time out-
punting Purucker.
One of the things that made Minne-
sota feared and omnipotent was its
reserve strength. Three and four deep,,
the Gophers would crush the opposi-
tion on mere man power, Yet, there's
a different story to tell this season.
The Gophers have few reserve
backs to compare with Kromer, Hook,
Trosko, Meyer, Mehaffey, or Christy.
They have fewer reserve linemen on
par with Fritz, Valek, Frutig, Siegel,
Smith, Olds, or Jordan. Crisler need
have no worry about wearing out his
first stringers with a crew like that
waiting around.
Michigan's one vulnerability has
been pass defense and with Van

Minnesota's ground game cen-
ters at the defensive tackles, and
it is there that Micigan's chief
strength is centered.
Michigan, coached by a master
strategist who knows Minnesota foot-
ball from a to z, will be at a high
psychological peak, realizing that

Given Huge Send-Off
Meanwhile, pre-game enthusiasm
in town reached what is believed to
be a new high as upwards of 3,500
exuberant students and townspeople
gave the Varsity a royal send-off at
the Michigan Central Station yester-
day afternoon.
The spirit of optimism prevails in
town these days. The campus thinks
the team will win, the boys know they
can do it. Victory celebrations are
being planned all over town already,
and to top it off, yesterday, Hank
Hatch, athletic equipment manager,
dusted off a place on his shelves for
the "Little Brown Jug."
The team will hold a light taper-

this afternoon, then head for St. Paul
