The fast skating of the men enables
them to backcheck quickly and thus
make them as strong defensively as
they are on the offense.
Hodgson; Andress, and Fink will
be on call for defensive duties, and
will allow the invaders to keep
changing their back line.
The Michigan team will be led
by Capt. Eldson "Spike" James,
lanky Canadian goaltender who for
the past two years has been the
guardian of the Wolverine nets.
Ross, Calvert On Defense
Spike's defense line of Charlie
Ross and Larry Calvert will probabl3
be called on to go most of the 6(
minutes. Both men saw a great deal
of action last year, and their play
this season has led Coach Lowre3
to believe that the task will not be
too much for them.
Ross has been converted from a
forward and possesses an unusually
hard shot that makes him a scoring
threat whenever he elects to carry
the puck.
Sophomore To Start

line for the Wolverines will be sopho-

Bert Stodden and Jim Lovett at the

Track Coaches
To Hold Trials
Thinclads Will Run Indoor
Time Tests In Field House
With the spotlight .on the varsity
quarter-mile run, Coaches Ken Do-
herty and C. C. Stackhouse will give
the track public its first glimpse of
the new Wolverine teams when they
send. their men through the first
indoor trials of the season at 3 p.m.
today at Yost Field House.
Even before the past season ended,
followers of the Michigan thinclads
were wondering who would be the
fourth man who would join the three
sophomore sensations, Warren Brei-
denbach, Phil Balyeat, and Jack Leu-
tritz in the quarter-mile relay after
seniors Ross Faulkner and Doug
Hayes graduated.
The field has narrowed to two
dashmen, a hurdler, and a quarter-
miler. Bill Dobson is the quarter-
miler xof the four, Stan Kelley the
hurdler, and Bob Barnard and Bud
Piel are the dashmen. This after-
noon's trials will give the first in-
dication as to who will be the one
to complement the finest trio of
quarter-milers that have ever been
at Michigan.
The public wil also have its first
look at the new crop of freshmen, as
well as a chance to look over the
returning varsity and last year's
frosh aces.

Natator Squad
To Inaugurate
Cleveland POOL
Twelve Swimmers Entrain
Today To Oppose City's
All-Stars In Exhibition
Michigan's record-seeking swim-
ming squad leaves this morning for,
Cleveland to help celebrate the open-
ing of a redecorated Athletic Club
pool there and take part in an exhi-
bition meet with an all-star team
from that city.
It was only fitting and proper that
the Wolverine should have been in-
vited for this pool's coming out party
since it was this same squad that
two years ago presented Cleveland
with one of its most outstanding
aquatic shows-an exhibition in
which just about every pool record
in existence that day went the way
of all flesh.
Twelve Make Trip
Matt Mann is taking 12 of his
natators with him in an effort to
make some additions to the list of
pool marks that Wolverine swimmers
and relay teams already hold. In-
cluded among those going are: Capt.
Hal Benham, Jack Wolin, Jim Welsh,
Dobson Burton, John and Gus Share-
met, Charley Barker, Bill Beebe, Bill
Holmes, Jim Skinner, Dick Riedl and
John Gillis.
There isn't much at stake as far
as the Michigan reputation is con-
cerned today since the Cleveland
squad is not expected to provide
much opposition for the Big Ten and
Western Conference champions. Star
mermen from Western Reserve, Case,
John Carroll and Baldwin-'Wallace
colleges will be in action, but even
that is far from sufficient to match
the powerful Wolverine forces.
New Records Sought
Most of the interest in the exhi-
bition, therefore, evolves around the
Michigan team's record breaking
aspirations. Matt Mann and his na-
tators will be seeking to send no
less than nine of the club's 12 pool
marks up through the chimney of
the large downtown building that
houses the pool..
The Wolverine guns are pointed1
toward the 60, 100, 220, and 440-
yard free style, the 100 and 200-
yard breast stroke, the 100 and 150-
yard back stroke and the 300-yard
medley relay marks.
The Michigan team will arrive int
Cleveland late this afternoon, put on
their exhibition tonight and return
to Ann Arbor early tomorrow.

match' the roses. Of course, tne
committee won't accept our recom-
rnendation and probably will take
Southern California from the coast
and either Tennessee or Texas A&M
as the guests.
When the Trojans play UCLA
in a week they should win be-
fore the Uclan fans can yell Jack
Robinson. The Texas Aggies
are through for the season and
we rather think they have a
right to call it quits. The Farmers
won 10 straight and the nearest
they came to being whipped was
the 6-2 Southern Methodist
Tennessee, ,however, shouldn't be
invited. It is in a rut. For 22 games
the Vols have gone on and on in the
same colorless manner. They've won
and won and won. Southern oppon-
ents are thinking of calling in the
NLRB. And their defense has taken
the hint. For the last 13 games their
goal line has been unsullied. Not only
that but they havent' been scored
Whoever goes, the Trojans will win.
We have spoken.

Ten sports writers thought a good
deal more of the Wolverine players
than the metropolitan writers . .
Orris Gran, sports editor of the Min-
nesota Daily, selected Tom Harmon
and Ralph Fritz on the first team,
Archie Kodros and Forest Evashevski
on the second and Joe Savilla, Joe
Rogers and Bob Westfall on the third
. . . The Ohio State Lantern also
had Frtiz and Harmon on the first
team, Evie and Kodros on the second
and John Nicholson and Bill Smith
were awarded honorable mention.
Harpo Bloom in the Daily Illini had
only Harmon on the first team and
Fritz, Savilla and Westfall on the
second . . . Grantland Rice, in the

The business men's lunch now offers
you grapefruit as well as soup, and
costs $1.50 instead of 65 cents. Hotels
are throwing up cots in hallways and
selling sleeping space in spare bath-
tubs. Philadelphia, in other words,
is in its annual stride for the Army-
Navy football game.
So art the Army and the Navy.
Under somber skies that held a threat
of rain, Navy had a final limbering-
up session this afternoon in the
Temple' University Stadium. The
Cadets, whipping through lively drill
that featured forward passes, worked
out in the huge Municipal Stadium,
which tomorrow will hold some 104,-
000 spectators.
Weather Might Keep FDR Away
Of this number, 101,610 will occupy
seats that were sold for this 40th
episode in the service series, including
2.300 midshipmen and 1,800 cadets.
The others will include President
Roosevelt and the entourage that
travels with him, unless the weather
should cause the Chief Executive to
change his mgind, ushers, vendors,
guards and the usual impressive dele-
gation from the working press.

Neither Record Impressive
Off their records-probably the
poorest either academy ever had
brought into their annual game-
there appeared little basis for draw-
ing a line between them. In six
major games--with Dartmouth, Notre
Dame, Clemson, Penn, Columbia and
Princeton-Navy's best showing was
a scoreless tie with Dartmouth. In
five major games, Army's best ef-
forts brought ties with Columbia and
Penn State, while the soldiers lost to
Yale, Notre Dame and Harvard.
Army's position in the betting odds
is based chiefly on Navy's deplorable
weakness against passes. In an at-
tempt to stop that gap, the Middies'
coach, Major Emery E: (Swede) Lar-
son, will start the tallest backfield he
can find.
