Maki Publicity,. .
IN SPITE of the fact that the propa-
ganda seeping out of the New
York office about Taisto Maki's and
Paavo Nurmi's plgrimmage across
America is true to the sporting tradi-
tion, that is, phoney, Saturday night's
A.A.U. meet will have its good points.
But first, to show that Herbert
Hoover has fallen in to the public-
ity groove we'll announce that
last Monday we received a pic-
ture from his New York office
portraying the two Finns sitting
in a New York subway, looking
incidentally, very uncomfortable.
Explaining the picture was this:
"The two Finns, instead of spend-
ing 85 cents for a taxi, use the
subway for a nickel. This enables
them to send more money home
for relief."
The next day a Detroit newspaper
announced that the pair was arriving
that afternoon by airplane. No doubt
they're still saving money.
But, in spite of the phonus-
balonus out of New York, it ap-

Hurdle Event

Freddie Trosko, veteran Wolver-
ine outfielder, has been forced to
forego indoor batting practice for
a few days due to a bruised hand.
The injury was caused no doubt
by the Flint senior's eagerness to
regain his batting form. Freddie
probably had spent more time in
the batting cage this spring than
any member of the squad.
Hogan Scores 133
To Set New Record
PINEHURST, N.C., March 20.-
(iP)--Running his sensational scoring
into a new record for 36 holes of
U.S. championship golf, Ben Hogan
today paced the 38th Annual North
and South Open Field to the halfway
mark with an eleven-under-par total
of 133.

Relay Strength
May Determine
It is a well-known fact in swimming
circles that championship teams with-
out top-notch relay squads are like
chocolate sundaes without ice cream.
And when Matt Mann takes his
swimmers to New Haven next week in
quest of his seventh consecutive Na-
tional Intercollegiate title, the Wol-
verine chances will be built around re-
lay strength even more than individ-
ual supremacy.
Coach Mann remembers too well
the Michigan struggle at the Rutger
pool two years ago. After the first
night of competition, everything
seemed gloomy for the Wolverines
who were trailing Ohio 22-20. But
when the waters settled the following
eve, Michigan had won again and
by the hard way that time, fo rits
margin over the Buckeyes was only a
single point.
Nipped Buckeyes
That year in particular, the Wol-
verines discovered what a good relay
team can mean. Going into the final
event, the freestyle relay, Ohio was
leading by three points. Michigan
had to beat the Buckeyes by two
places in order to win.
And they did. Ed Kirar thrashed
the anchor lap in :52.0 to give Mich-
igan the first place 10 points, while
the Harvard quartet came churning
home ahead of Ohio.
Relay strength in the Wolverine
team has almost become a tradition.
In National Intercollegiate competi-
tion, the freestyle relay record has
especially been impressive. Michi-
gan has finished first in the past
three years and in five of the nine
years the event has been included
in the program.
In Western Conference champion-
ship meet, the Wolverines have won
four of the eight 400-yard free-
style relays and 10 of the 15 300-
yard medleys.
No Exception
This year is no exception. In both
of the relay events at New Haven
next week, the Michigan teams will
be the ones to beat.
In nine dual meets and the Wes-
tern Conference championships, the
Wolverines shave marched along
with a perfect record in both relays.
Even at Yale last December when
they met the crack Eli squad in a
dual meet, it was Michigan out in
front in both events.
Yale had a 3:30.6 record to its
credit in the freestyle before that
meeting, but that didn't stop the
Matt Mann squad. Gus Sharemet
came flashing home in :51.8 on the'
anchor lap to touch out Howie
Johnson, the Eli speedster, in 3:31.8.

Dick Bartell Stars
In Win Over Giants
LAKELAND, Fla., March 20.-(A)-
Daring Dick Bartell gave the New
York Giants the business today and
the Detroit Tigers came in the win-
ners, 8 to 7 in 12 innings, in an ex-
hibition game.
Blasting out a home run with one
on in the eighth, Bartell tied the
score in climaxing a five-run Tiger
rally and in the 12th he rapped out
a single to send Pat Mullin home
with the winning run.
Bartell also hit a two-bagger, but
it failed to figure in the scoring.

liruins And Blackhawks
Face Stanley Cup Crisis
NEW YORK, March 20.-(P--Two
of the three National Hockey League
playoff series will be resumed tomor-
row night with the issue squarely up
to the Boston Bruins and the Chicago
Both the Bruins and Hawks lost
the opening battles last night, Boston
dropping a 4-0 decision to the New
York Rangers and Chicago bowing to-
the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in an
overtime game. While a defeat will
not be exactly to the liking of the
Bruins, a setback will be disastrous
to the Hawks
