"It may be so
But I don't know
It sounds so awfully queer
When they rave and rant
And hurl that cant
About physical conditions here."
* * *
PHYSICAL condition, that is, being
in the best possible shape, has
always been considered a preequi-
site for intensive and exemplary ath-
letic activity. We see athletes train-
ing for six months so as to be ready
for the supreme test-in their case
the epitome of supremeness is win-
ning an event.
Football players hit dummies,
duckwalk; trackmen run 'round
and 'round for months on- end
(on their feet); baseball players
go south to work out the kinks
and incidentally to build up a
public awareness that baseball is
just around the corner of April.
And when an thelete hits, or at
least approaches physical per-
fection, then he is assumed to be
'ready', to be at his peak.
But in spite of an almost universal
worship at the shrine of physical
condition, anomolous cases continue
to rise.
The latest of these is the myster-
ious case of Bud Piel at the Confer-
ence track meet last weekend. On
Friday Piel, a sophomore sprinter,
developed a fever. He had a tem-
perature Friday night and yet, in
the preliminaries, he whipped de-
fending champion Myron Piker in
his heat in the fast time of :06.2. It
so surprised Piker to see this com-
parative unknown out in front of'
him that he looked around in his
nervousness to discover whether or
not he had qualified.
The next day, the fever subsided
and to a lesser degree so did Piel.
He still finished well but this time
he was fourth as Piker won in :06.2.
** *
EXHIBIT B is the case of Ed Bar-
rett, varsity miler, Barrett didn't
stray from the hotel on Friday be-
cause of a bad cold. He felt terrible~
went to bed early and on Saturday
looked wan and pale.

Yet on Saturday night he ran
the mile in 4:14.5, his fastest at-
tempt, the second fastest ever
run by a Michigan man and the
best a Wolverine has ever done
in the Conference meet.
NOW that we're on the subject we'll
think back' to the National Col-
legiate swimming meet last year.
Charley Barker, a sophomore whose
chief claim to fame was that he had
finished second in the Big Ten back
stroke and had chased Walt Tomski
home' all year in the 50-yard free
style, was sick. He was running a
temperature and it was accompanied,
without music, by a splitting head-
ache. There was doubt as to whether
or not he could swim.
Well, he swam. Not only did
he swim but shortly afterward he
was Collegiate 50-yard champion
and co-champion in the 100. All
in all, quite good for an invalid.
* * *
TWO weeks ago, about half an hour
before the Michigan-Northwest-
ern swimming meet was to begin, we
asked Gus Sharemet if he was going
to break 52 seconds for the hundred.
Gus told us that the way he felt
he'd be lucky to finish. "I've never
worked as hard in my life on jobs
and had so little sleep as I have the
last two days," he said. "I'm a wreck."
He must have been a Wreck 'cause
he didn't break 52 seconds. He only
swam 52.2, the second fastest time
ever turned in by a Michigan swim-
"It may be so . .

tonight's affair Michigan's outstand-
ing home meet of the year.
May Lose A Dual Event
For the first time since they met
New York AC two months ago, the
Wolverines will probably lose an event
in dual competition. Iowa, Minne-
sota, Northwestern, Michigan State
and Pitsburgh went down by the
whitewash route, but Wayne is ex-
pected to break the Michigan romp
With Jim Welsh confined to a
Columbus hospital Maas has sure
points in Clark. The Tartar sopho-
more did a 4:54.3 in his quarter mile
win against Yale, and that will be
more than enough against Blake
Thaxter and Larry Wehrheim, the
Michigan entries.
Clark will have his hands full in
his other event, the 220, however,
when he meets the highly improved
Ed Hutchens, champion of the Wes-
tern Conference at the distance. The
Wayne star will be the one to beat in
this event too, but if Hutchens is in
top condition, he might be able to
do the job. Tommy Williams, the big
sophomore freestyler, will be Matt
Mann's other entry in this race.
Injured Diving Digits
The diving might be called the
"event of the bandaged hands" to-
night for two of the mainstays will
be competing with injured digits.
Bobby Gardner, Wayne's ace, broke
his finger in a practice gainer dive
while testing the Yale board in prep-
aration for the Eli meet. Strother
"T-Bone" Martin will be the other
bandaged contestant by virtue of the
injury he reecived in a fall this week.
The third man in the event will be
unharmed Hal tBenham, the Michi-
gan captain.
Michigan's advantage will come in
the backstroke, breastroke, sprints
and relays. Charley Barker in the
50 and Gus Sharemet in the century
will be too much for Guy Lumsden
and Prew, the Tartar stars, to handle.
Wolverine Power
Maas has LeRoy Ogle, third in the
National AAU backstroke last year,
and Kerr, Canadian champion, for the
150-yard backstroke duties, but this
pair will be no match for the power-
ful Michigan trio of Francis He'ydt,
Bill Beebe and Dick Riedl.
In the breastroke, it will be Dick
Koch from Wayne against Michigan's
Johnny duo, Sharemet and Haigh,
with Sharemet a strong favorite to
cop the first place.
The relays will especially show off
the Wolverine power and balance.
Both the medley and freestyle tests
find Matt Mann with the outstand-
ing team.

Capt. Hai Benham will lead his
undefeated Western Conference
champion tank teamn against the
highly-rated Wayne Tartars in the
I-1 pool tonight. Benham's chief
competition in the diving event
will come from Bobby Gardner,
Wayne's sophomore ace, and his
teammate, Strother "T -Bone"

Finland May Decide
To Stage Olympics
HELSINKI, March 14.-( P)-Vice-
Mayor von Frenckell, chairman of
the Helsinki Olympic Committee,
said today "it is too early to give out
a final decision whether we intend to
hold the Olympic Games this sum-
The various Olympic sites, includ-
ing the main stadium and Olympic
village, all escaped damage from
bombs. They were nearing comple-
tion when the war with Russia start-
ed last fall. Finland has until April
1 to announce its intentions regard-
ing the game.

For the second straight week it
will be Michigan defending a cham-
pionship and seeKing a seventh con-
secutive win, and Indiana trying to S T A T
upset the Wolverines. This time, it's
in the Butler Relays.
Ken Doherty's first Michigan team
disposed, of the Hoosier threat quite
satisfactorily last week in Chicago
in the Conference Meet, and is ex-
pected to do the same thing Satur-
day, with an even more decisive win
in prospect since there are no spe-
cial events in the middle distances
which contain the Indiana power.
Defend Relay Title
Michigan will be defending only
one relay title-the four-mile event
in which it set a meet record last
year. The same team of Karl Wis-
ner, Ed Barrett, Brad Heyl, and Capt.
Ralph Schwarzkopf will be back try-
ing to repeat, and since the Michigan
team set an Illinois Relays mark
this season, it figures to take this
In the medley relay, the Wolver-
ines come up against the crack In-
diana team which won the Illinois
Relays. Just who will make up the
team is not certain, but Coach Do-
herty has a number of men ready to
run, and whoever they are, the Hoo-
siers may expect a close race.
Four Wolverines qualified for the
half-mile finals in the Big Ten last
week, and the foursome will be out
to take the measure of the crack#
Indiana two-mile relay team which
Hoosier partisans suspect of having
world-record-breaking possibilities.
Indiana won the Illinois Relays, and
Michigani ran second with makeshift
foursome. A real battle is in pros-
pect here.
Favored In Mile Relay
Michigan's mile relay team will
probably be instilled the favorite on
the basis of the performance in the
Conference Meet. To win, however,
the Wolverines will have to take the
crown away from Pittsburgh, which
won last year, and which has an-
other great team despite the grad-
uation of its star, Long John Wood-
Doherty will also enter men in all
of the individual events, and Don
Canham, Stan Kelley, and Al Smith
may all come home with first places,
Canham being the favorite in the
high jump, and Kelley seeking re- We C

which Ed Smith of Wisconsin de-
feated him last weekend, Smith, af-
ter taking third in Chicago, should ST
