Announcement of the entry of
Pennsylvania's sophomore star Ed
Beetem in shot put at the A.A.U. Re-
lays Saturday night in Yost Field
House will give Michigan's track fans
the best duel in that event that Mid-
western college circles have seen in
years. Opposing the big Quaker will
be Bill Watson, Michigan's captain
last year, and possessor of nine Big
Ten titles in three outdoor Confer-
ence meets.
Beetem has put the shot over 53
feet already in his short career, and
is rated by Lawson Robertson, the
Olympic and Penn coach, as the best
weight prospect he has had in years.
Watson Getting Into Shape
Watson has done better than 54
feet at least twice. Bill returned to
school this semester to ready him-
self for the Pan-American Games,
and while he is not yet in top condi-
tion, should be the favorite on the
basis of his great competitive spirit.
In addition to these men, there
will be Michigan's Bob Hook and
George Ostroot, State's Les Bruck-
ner, Charles Betker of Wayne, Ed
Rosenzweig of Huron Club, and Ed
Opalewski, Michigan Normal fresh-
Schwarzkopf Races Maki
In the feature race of the evening,
Capt. Ralph Schwarzkopf of Michi-
gan will meet the Flying Finn, Taisto
Maki, the greatest figure to appear
on the track horizon since Jesse
Owens was holding the attention of
the world. Maki has cracked almost
every distance record over a mile,
running 8:53 for two miles, and 13:34
for three miles, which is just over a
9:01 pace for two miles. In addi-
tion, Ed Holderman, Purdue's sopho-
more star, and Dick Frey of Michigan
State will be in the race.
"What happened to Kelley?" was
as familiar to Ken Doherty yester-
day as his own name, for it was the
first question track followers put to
him about the results of the Butler
Relays which the Wolverine track
team won so narrowly last weekend.
Stan Kelley, Michigan's star hurd-
ler, just wasn't among those present
when the places were handed out in
the high and low hurdle events, and
this came one week following the
Conference meet in which he lost a
still-disputed decision to Ed Smith,
the Wisconsin ace, who won at But-
Kelley On Crutches
Kelley is walking around with crut-
ches today, result of clipping a hurdle
while leading the semi-final heat of
the highs and straightening up so
quickly that he strained his back and
leg muscles. Stan managed to quali-
fy and run fifth in the finals, but

afterwards the hurt took effect, and
put him on the shelf for a while.
Doherty went on to say "That was
about the most thrilling meet I've
seen. Every race was as close as you
could want it, and that last leg of
the mile relay when Breidenbach
came from behind barely to sneak into
first place and give us the Relays
championship-well, you know how I
felt about that one. And, you might
put in a good word for Jack Leutritz
who looked better than he has all sea-
son before this."
Medley Relay Loss 'Tough'
"That medley relay was a tough one
to lose. It was a better race than
the mile, too. After Tommy Jester
built up about a 5 foot lead over Ed
Hedges, it stayed that way till the
last turn of the mile when Campbell
Kane let out everything he had and
managed to finish just ahead of
Schwarzkopf. We broke the world
record too, but it doesn't count."
Finally Doherty mentioned Bob
Hook's shot-putting, the junor star
having done 47 feet two inches, Dave
Cushing's continuance of his 13-foot
pole vaulting, and Jeff Hall's form
in the high hurdles.
Chicago White Sox Win
Over Philadelphia, 4-2
ANAHEIM, Calif., March 18.-(IP)
--Scoring two runs in the seventh
on an error and Tom Turner's single
the Chicago White Sox came from
behind today to beat the Philadel-
phia Athletics, 4 to 2.
Frankie Hayes, A's catcher who
ended his holdout this morning,
played an inning at first base.

Michigan's 1939 track captain,
Bill Watson, will face the Penn-
sylvania sophomore star, Ed Bee-
tem in the shot put here Saturday
night in the Michigan A.A.U. Re-
lays which are being held for the
benefit of the Finnish Relief Fund.
Beetem has done 53 feet, and may
spring an upset on Watson.

Bruins Are Favored To Retain
Stanley Cup As Playoffs Begin

We Never Knew . .
THINGS we've known about but
never could figure out reasons
why about: that timers and judges
at track meets have different ideas
about when rumners finish. Judges
feel that the race is over when the
tape is broken, usually by the breast,
(we could) have, in sporting par-
lance, said breasted the tape) while
timers click their watches when the
body passes over the finish line (no,
Morty Q, not like the Russians). Phil
Diamond, one of the best clockers in
the country, says that a man can
drop dead just before the finish line,
fall across the tape and win the race
as far as the judges are concerned
but he'll never finish the race in the
timer's mind.
That a Michigan sprinter who
runs 10 seconds for the hundred
in Ann Arbor will, nine times out
of ten, beat an Ohio sprinter who
runs ten seconds in Columbus
when the two meet. The reason
is that the late Steve Farrell, as
track coach here in the twenties,
insisted that all men be timed as
their bodies cross the line and
the system has been perpetuated.
The other schools all use the
time when the tape is breasted
(there, we said it). And the in-
stant of time means a difference
at the finish.0
That at the Butler Relays, only
the first four places get points. That
in the field events the points are
distributed 5, 3, 2 and 1 and all the
others they're 10, 6, 4 and 1.
That some sprinters have cul-
tivated a rocking motion from
their starting position so that
they can catch the starter's gun
Winchell Wins
Dorm Mat Title
Wenley House Captures
Half-MileRelay Trials
Wenley and Winchell houses
grabbed off the top honors in inter-
dormitory competition last night as
the Wenley thinclads won the half-
mile relay trials in 1:40.7 and Win-
chell's grapplers took the wrestling
Dave Eldredge, Arnold Horelick,
Don Julius and Charles Donahey
composed the winning relay team
which will represent Wenley in Sat-
urday night's benefit AAU meet at
Yost Field House against Winchell,
Lloyd and Fletcher, who finished in
that order in the trials.
Winchell took four individual
crowns in the wrestling bouts as John
Mattick won the 128 pound division,
Dan Meteef, the 145, Roger Good-
win, 165 and Dick Mueller made off
with the heavyweight title. Williams,
finished second with 17 points, Mich-
igan House was third, and Allen-
Rumsey, fourth.
Frank Warner at 155 and Tom
Coleman wrestling at 175 are the
dormitory champs from Williams.
William Bredehoft won Allen-Rum-
sey's only title in the 121 pound divi-
sion and Bruce Baisch captured 136
crown for Michigan house.
Hill Billy took four individual
events to gather a total of 26 points
in winning the Independent mat title
against 15 for Wolverines and eight
for Robert Owen. Ray Dean, Ralph
Turner, Robert Fulton and Jack
Richardson won the crowns from the
155 pound division to the heavyweight
for Hill Billy. Bill Bestint and Ralph
Wilson took the 128 and 136 crowns
respectively for Wolverines and Ray
Buntaine wrestled his way to the 145
title for Robert Owen.

on their forward nution and get
off to a flying start. That the
starters aren't so dumb either
and are constantly on the watch
for those tricks. That just as a
puniiive device they'll try to

wards and thn; leave them at the

That divers take showers in
between their dives. That there
is a fulcrum on every diving
board which each individual div-
er adjusts according to his abil-
ity to bounce the board. The
adjustment of the fulcrum gives
him more or less leverage de-
ing on which way he moves it.
That the judges begin to measure
a dive from the moment the per-
former starts to move toward the
front of the board. That if a diver
is performing a cutaway (facing the
springboard then throwing his feet
out away from it) or just a plain
back dive-on both of which he must
walk to the edge of the board and
turn around-and then remembers
he has forgotten to remember to ad-
just the fulcrum he must ask per-
mission of the judges to return and
change his board. If they refuse he
remembers not to forget next time.
That official times mean noth-
ing in judging the finish of a
swimming event. That, in the
100-yard dash for example,
swimmer A can be clocked in
52.5 by an official timer and
swimmer B in 52.6 yet B can
win the race. The theory is that
the eye is quicker than the hand
and there is some flaw in either
the watches themselves or the
reaction of the timers in press-
ing the stop watch er both.
Add apocrnphyl stores about the
recent Butler Relays: in the four-
mile relay, Ralph Schwarzkopf, run-
ning second, lapped an Ohio State
runner. He handed the baton to
Bill Ackerman who started out, com-
pleted the first lap and thought to
himself "holy mackeral, there's an
Ohio State man a lap ahead of me."
So the sophomore ran and ran
like you-know-what till finally he
lapped the Buckeye too. And that's
one reason why Michigan set a new
Relays record for the event.

NEW YORK, March 18. -(AP)-
Having skated through four and a
half months to eliminate just one
team from the playoffs, the six re-
maining clubs in the National Hockey
League start their extra-curricular
activities for the Stanley Cup tomor-
row night, with the Boston Bruins as
top-heavy choice to hang onto the old
mug again.
The Bruins, regular season cham-
pions, take on their toughest rival
right at the start-the New York
Rangers, who finished in second place
in the regular campaign. The first
game in the best-four-of-seven series
will be in Madison Square Garden.
Meantime, the third and fourth
place clubs, the Toronto Maple Leafs
and the Chicago Blackhawks open
their best-of-seven set at Toronto,


Hank Loud Destined To Succeed
Spike James In Nets Next Year

while the two remaining playoff sur-
vivors,,the New York Americans and
the Detroit Redwings, get things un-
der way at Detroit, starting a two-
out-of-three series.
'Kraut Line' Leads Bruins
Headed by their famed "Sauerkraut
Line" of Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart
and Bobby Bauer-who finished one-
two-three in the individual scoring
race-the Bruins were established to-
day as 3 to 2 favorites to knock off
the Rangers in the opening set and
13 to 10 to go on from there against
other playoff survivors and success-
fully defend the cup.
The Rangers, however, won four
and tied two of eight starts against
the Hub city crew during the regular
campaign, and reported themselves
at full strength today.
Toronto was 9 to 5 to eliminate the
Blackhawks and 5 to 1 to surprise by
going on to win the cup. In the other
playoff, Detroit was a narrow favor-
ite to take care of the Amerks, and
15-1 to pull one out of the hat and
capture the cup.
Shore Holds Spotlight
Most dramatic aspect of the whole
playoff set-up, despite the always hot
rivalry between the Bruins and Ran-
gers, was the job old Eddie Shore cut
out for himself.
If the Amerks-Detroit set goes the
full route by Sunday, three games,
Eddie, the bald eagle, has to perform
with his Springfield Indians in the
International-American League play-
offs. Part-owner and standout per-
former of the Redskins, he would
have to take part in their two play-
off tests during the week. Under
this schedule, he would be in there
tomorrow, Friday and Sunday for
the crippled Amerks and Thursday
and Saturday for the Springfields.
In his spare time, Eddie probably will
be selling programs or polishing up
his, collection of body checks.

Yale Doings Posted
Alongside of Matt's slogans, or-
ders and philosophy are the recent
Yale scores and times clipped from

and the Wolverines know it. The
Ri mermen easily triumphed over

Rene Chouteau, the Yale quarter

the Crimson ace, Eric Cutler, in the
Eli-Harvard dual competition. John-
ny Meyer, the breastroker, has come
down to consistent 2:26's. And the
the great Howie Johnson is still great.
His times are sensational . . . and
it's all on the I-M pool board for
the Wolverines to look at and think
lichigan was well on its way to
a seventh straight National Colle-
giate crown just a month ago. The
Wolverines had defeated Yale in a
dual meet by 17 points. Another

Erin McCoy Joins
Coaches; Handles
Iresl'nan Baseball
Ernie McCoy, the newest addition
to the Michigan coaching staff, came
to Ann Arbor yesterday and immedi-
ately went to work as freshman base-
ball coach, succeeding Bennie Ooster-
baan who has stepped up to varsity
football end coach.
McCoy, who will also act as basket-
ball assistant to Oosterbaan and will
be an assistant freshman football
coach, formerly coached at Mont-
clair, N.J., High School for eight
The new coach was a star at De-
troit's Northwestern High School, and
then came to Michigan. He captained
the championship basketball team in
1928-29. Like Campbell Dickson,
whose resignation brought about the
shift in coaches, he is a winner of

For three seasons Michigan hockey
fans watched the tall, heavily
padded Eldon "Spike" James skate
slowly out on the Coliseum ice, drop
a puck down and bang it in a net
with his wide stick.
And for three thrill-packed sea-
sons Michigan ,hockey fans rocked
the ice arena with their cheers
for one of the greatest goalies ever
to wear the Maize and Blue. Game
after game it was the sensational
speed and wizardry of the same Spike

squad in the battle for hockey hon-
But all good things must end at
one time or another, and so it is
with the collegiate career of James,
who is the only senior left on this
year's puck team. The Illinois series
marked Spike's last appearance as a
There is quite a hole left on the
Michigan team now that Spike has
shed pads for the last time. But, all is
not lost. There has been a mild, soft
spoken sophomore working every day
with Coach Eddie Lowrey's puck-
chasers in the net at the opposite
end from that watched by Capt.
Hank Loud is the boy, and he is
destined to lead the Michigan hoc-
key players on the Coliseum ice next
year just as James has led his team
for the past three seasons. Loud
hails from Grimsby, Ontario, and
played in the junior Ontario Hockey
Association before coming to Mich-
Cool, as a cucumber and a tough
man to outguess, "Loud is especially
good when the chips are down, when
we're really playing for keeps,"
Coach Lowrey pointed out. Michi-

gan's probable successor to the in-
imitable Spike James will be "out
there battling" as he puts it, to
carry on his predecessor's enviable

a much smaller man than James,
for he stands but five feet nine
inches and he has to keep jumping
to cover all corners of the net. But
he has the necessary speed and
agility required to maneuver himself
into position.
When Spike James skated off the
home ice after the Parist A. C. game
Michigan fans saw the last of
a great net minder. Next year a new
face will be crouched over the pads
awaiting the puck. Hank Loud, full
of hope and the determination to
carry on where the Michigan captain
left off, is ,destined to fill the net
left vacant by the graduation of
Michigan's greatest goalie.
North-South Open
Golf Tournament
Will Begin Today,
PINEHURST, N. C., March 18.-(P)
-If anyone can be a favorite in
these days of high-powered competi-
tion, it will be Byron Nelson when
the $4,000 North and South golf
championship starts tomorrow over
Pinehurst's deservedly famous No. 2
This is the tournament that starts
the pros down the winter circuit's
$19,000 home stretch. From Pine-
hurst they go to Greensboro and then
to Asheville, winding up at the Au-
gusta (Ga.) Masters in April with
the last of three $5,000 tournaments.
Nelson stands No. 6 today in the
list of money won since the first of
the year. Top man is Jimmy Demar-
et, but the Texan has been called
back to Houston by his club mem-
bers, and won't rejoin the caravan
until the Augusta finale.
