gained this distinction by having

High-Jump Starl

I IN THIS CORNER
By MEL FINEBERG
Track Theories And Facts..
ONE week from today, the first edition of John Kenneth Doherty's Mich-
igan track teams will make its formal debut in Conference meets.
For any new coach, starting a new dynasty at a university, the first
year's road is a tenuous and difficult one. In sporting parlance, "the pres-
sure is on".
But John Kenneth Doherty's bow as a varsity track coach is made
doubly difficult. When he takes his heavily manned squad to Chicago
for the Indoors next week, he'll look as though he's suffering from a
severe case of estropia. One eye will be attached to the future; the other
will be crossed as he tries to compare himself with the past, i.e. Charley
Hoyt's tremendous record of 11 Big Ten championships in 16 attempts.
Nor is John Kenneth Doherty unaware of the pressure upon him as he
tries to live up to a sterling example. As if he needed a "spur to prick the
side of his intent", he drafted a little score chart for the last decade, 1930-
1939. We might add that even if we think nothing of the perseverance and
the sporting curiosity involved, John Kenneth Doherty should be heartily
applauded for having resisted any maudlin urge to call those ten years,
The Dirty Thirties, The Destiny Decade ad nauseum and infinitum.

At any rate, here

is the chart:

SUMMARY -- 1930-1939

Don Canham, will face one of his
toughest competitors, Ted Leonas
of Notre Dame, this Saturday in
the meet with the Irish at South
Bend. Since Canham's records
have been made with little compe-
tition and Leonas has the best
jump of the year a close duel is
expected.
High Jumpers
To Be Feature
Of Irish Meet
By UIERM EPSTEIN
The nation's two best collegiate
high-jumpers may be meeting Satur-
day afternoon when Michigan is en-
tertained by Notre Dame's track: team.
Don Canham, Wolverine leaper de
luxe, will come up against the Irish's
Capt. Ted Leonas, anid the result is
likely to be almost anything conceiv-
able in 'the jumping line..
Has Best Leap
As far as is known "right now,
Leonas' 6 feet 61/2 inch leap several
weeks ago is the best on record this
year, with Canham's two leaps one-
eighth inch lower being the next best.
Just how the two stack up against
each other is hard to determine.
Canham has been consistently bril-
liant this year, opening ~his season
with a Field House record, and fol-
lowing that with the Illinois Relays
mark. -.Leonas, on the other hand,
has been the personification of in-
consistency. He seems to jump fair-
ly well one week, fairly poorly the
next, and alternate that way, but with
each high performancebeing higher
than the week before, and each low
leap being worse than the previous
week. In his next-to-last meet, the
South Bend ace had that 6 feet 61/2
inch jump already. mentioned. Last
week, he was second in an event which
was won at six feet one inch. If he
continues being a human cycle in
performance, this week he should go
over six feet seven inches.
Records Without Competition
If he does, though, he still won't
be sure of winning, for Canham has
his own ideas about who will be the
number or.e college high-jumper, and
with those ideas, he has the necessary
ability. No one has extended him
thus far this year, and his record-
making leaps have found him jump-
ing all by himself. If he has com-
petition, and this looks like the week,
he should go up much higher than
ever before,
So Notre Dame fans will be treat-
ed to a preview of what may be the
finals of the National Collegiate high-
jump next June in Minneapolis, but
in any case, that high jump bar will
be plenty high before MVessrs. Can-
ham and Leonas call it quits for the
afternoon.

It should be noticed that in these ten years, Hoyt-coached teams as-
sembled 322 points, 12 more than the aggregate total of the last five teams.
John Kenneth Doherty pointed out one of his pet theories to us,
a theory that seems to be amply corroborated by the chart. "It's always
been my contention", Doherty says, "that a coach tends to develop his
greatest talent in that particular event in which he participated."
A quick look at the chart shows his contention to have feet of something
more substantial than clay. Michigan's"highest total of points scored in
any one -event is 50 in the 60-yard dash. Hoyt was holder of the national
interscholastic record for the 100-yard dash and world record holder at
220-yards around one turn. He was also a hurdler at Grinnell College. The
70-yard high hurdles ranks second in the individual events with 38 points.
Indian's Billy Hayes was a distance runner in his day. The mile with
44 points and the two-mile with 54 are easily his greatest point-getters
as a ,coach.
Clarence Munn was a track coach at Minnesota for three years.
iblarence Munn was shot put champion of the Conference. Minnesota
shot putters have amassed 28 points, only one less than the total of all
other events
Purdue's Orville Martin was a middle-distance man. Now, as a coach,
Boilermaker milers and half-milers have garnered 35 points while the Pur-
due total in this period was only 41 points and in six events they've been
unable to scratch.
Doherty was American decathlon champion in 1928 so we asked him
what he'd turn out. He smiled and replied "balance".
Water Poloists Expect Victory

By DON WIRTCHAFTER
Concensus of opinion among Mich-
igan's make-believe water polo play-
ers has it that the Wolverine team
will "murder da bums" when the
title bound Northwestern outfit
comes to town tomorrow night.
Having already whipped their
strongest rivals, the Chicago Maroons,
the Wildcats are well on their way to
another Big Ten crown, but Matt
Mann's hand picked crew isn't wor-
ried about that.
As Johnny Sharemet, Michigan
right back, puts it, "Northwestern
won't be expecting much. They have-
n't heard of the experienced men on
our team. Why my brother Gus and
I played second team on a champion-
ship high school squad in Detroit."
In the meantime, the Wolverines
worked hard yesterday in prepar-
ation for the advent of the Wildcats!
Matt Mann drilled his team for al-
most 15 minutes, most of which was
spent in picking up the decrepit goal
posts that kept falling in the water.
As it now stands, the starting Wol-
verine team will include Capt. Hal
Benham at the goals, Jorge Carulla,
center back, John Sharemet, right
back, Jim Welsh, left back, Bill
Holmes, center forward, Gus Share-

EAST LANSING, Feb. 29. -(AP)-
Michigan State will close its most
successful basketball season since
1935 in an intersectional contest with
Temple University here Friday night.
The Spartans will be shooting at
their 14th victory in 20 games and
in addition will seek to avenge a 42-40
defeat at Temple's hands earlier in
