A C4hance To Smile .
TALL AND GENIAL J. Kennth Doherty ambled across the broad jump pit,
picked up a-clump of dirt and pinched it between his fingers.
His eyes were tired, but there was a smile of relaxation, or perhaps sat-
isfaction, beneath it all. Ken's face deserved to smile. His gang of "temper-
amentals," broken from its stranglehold on the Western Conferepce title
just a week ago, had come bac: brilliantly Saturday to snatch its eighth
straight Butler Relay crown.
"Any guy on the team who scored two points can be blamed for
that one," Ren explained. "It was a full team victory, if I've ever seen
one. There wasn't a man that let us down."
Two more pinches at the dirt and Doherty brought forth some facts
to back up his statement. He talked about Bud Piel's amazing :06.2 per-
forinance in the 60-yard sprint. He mentioned Bob Hook's 49 feet 112
inch heave of the shot, the best he has ever done.
"Why, Decker was way off form in the pole vault," Ken continued, "and
still managed to gain us some valuable points with a 13 feet 8 inch leap. And
"look at Al Thomas and Frank McCarthy. They both came through great in
the hurdler,."
One of the crowning points of the entire evening, however, was the
smashing comeback of Michigan's high-jumping veteran, Wesley Allen, who
just failed to clear the bar at six feet, three and three-quarters inches, but
managed to finish second in the event.
A sensational high school performer who starred here during his
sophomore year and then fell the victim of more injuries than the Bess-
arabian army, Allen attempted to make the grade again last week at La-
fayette, but his tricky legs failed him.
With Canham on the sidelines Saturday, however, and with points
meaning victory, the lanky senior came through like never before.-
Michigan, all told, won onlyone first place in the meet, but once again
it was team balance that told the tale., The victorious mile relay squad was
never in doubt. Al Thomas sprang off the start in :49.8. Bobby Barnard
added a :49.9 and by that time Breidenbach and Ufer had a 25 yard lead to
work on. Like Barnard, these two completed their laps in :49.9.
Add it all together and you have Michigan's eighth ponsecutive Butler
relay title-
CAMPBELL KANE the great Indiana middle-distance star, has arrived
in town to work out for the Michigan AAU Relays that will be run
off in the Field House tomorrow night . . . That will be quite a race
when the long Hoosier speedster, clashes against Michigan's Ralph
Schwarzkopf and Ypsi's Tommy Quinn . . . Schwarzkopf, incidentally,
ran his best race of the year Sunday in Cleveland, finishing second to
Rice with Lash and the rest in the rear . . . Roy Cochran wanted to
race here tomorrow against Breidenbach in the half-mile, but Indiana
Coach E. C (Billy) Hayes vetoes the idea . . . Veteran Gene Venske
may come to take his place.

lost by a smaller margin Thursday
(4-2) but that was when Illinois
played without Bessone and Ziemba.
Saturday night, Michigan broke
through the defense more consistent-
ly than they have in any Big Ten
game this season . . . it was unfortu-
nate that Jack Gillan, Ilinois goalie,I
came through with the best game he
has ever played against Michigan
the same night . . . Jack has always
been just an average goalie . . . Sat-
urday, he was terrific . . . and it cost
Michigan a chance for a tie or even
a victory.'
Title of club's tough luck king goes
to Max Bahrych . . . Max had three
open shots at the net Saturday ... two
of them hit the goai posy and Gillan
came up with the other . . . Jimmy
Lovett finished his career in great
style . . . played aggressively through
both games . . . drew praise of Il-
linois players and fans . . . as did
Paul Goldsmith, Max Bahrych and

Puck Coach Calls
Freshman Squad

"With the-best crop of freshmen
hockey players to appear up here in
years, we'll have one of the best, if,
not the best team in college com-
petition in two years." That's the way
Coach Eddie Lowrey gave expression
to his optimism after watching his
yearling squad run through their
paces in practice scrimmage at the
Embodying much of the speed and
aggressiveness so necessary in _ice
hockey, the freshman crew boasts
of three outstanding forwards in the
persons of Bill Dance, Johnny Braid-
ford and Bob Bennett. All three of
these boys show promnise of "knowing
what it's all about," accordingAo
Coach Lowrey, and should develop
into able replacements for Captain
Charley Ross and the others of Mich-
igan's forward line who will graduate!
this year.
The second line, while lacking some
of the speed. of. this first forward
wall, are nonetheless experienced
skaters and have all the . "fight"
which Eddie considers more essen-
tial than anything else in his men..
Warner Forsyth at right wing, Doug
Hillman at left wing, and Bob Pulford
at center make up this second line
of offense.
The only thing to be looked for in
this year's freshman team is a strong
back wall but Lowrey believes he has
a real "find" in Jim Claypool, a b1
rangy skater who is fast shaping into
a very good defenseman.
Bob Richardson, a sophomore
transfer from Boston University,
holds down the position of goalie on
the yearling squad. Bob has shown
himself to be a very able goal-tender

Fifty Football
Hopefuls Open
Spring Drills'
The icy blasts that chilled Ann
Arbor yesterday seemed like anything
but "spring" football weather, but
still failed to stop Coach Fritz Cris-
ler from holding the inaugural meet-
ing with his 1941 grid prospects in-
side the Sports Buildig.
- Attired in gym suits and shoes,
a squad of 50 football hopefuls, the
majority of which were freshmen,
went through a light preliminary drill
on the basketball courts under the
guidance of Crisler and assistant
coaches Munn, Martineau, Weber
and Renda.
Ted Kennedy, reserve center, acid
Jim Grissen, backfield substitute,
were the only Wolverine lettermen
who reported for the first dayls work-
out, but Crisler revealed that he ex-
pected more of his Varsity first-
stringers to join the squad soon.
Dave Allerdice, Tom Kuzma, Julius
Franks, Don Robinson, Merv Pregul-
man, and Walt Friehofer were among
the aspiring freshmen candidates on
hand to make bids for positions in
the Varsity lineup.
The gridders will continue to work
out ongr'simple fundamentals and
a few plays inside the Sports Build-
ing until the weatherman lets up on
the cold wave and allows the squad to
go outdoors.
Daily Sports Staff

semester sophomores who would like
to try their hands at sports writing

7 p.m. in the Publications Building.

TATORS: Minus three of their high-
powered teammates: Fran Heydt,
confined to bed with a cold, John
Sharemet, suffering the same malady,
and Jim Welsh, also on the slightly-
ailing list, Michigan's champions had
quite a battle Saturday night in De-
troit's Northwestern High School pool
before finally subduing Wayne Uni-
versity, 45-39.
Bill Prew duplicated his early sea-
son triumph in Ann Arbor when the
Wolverines nipped the Tartars, 51-
33, as he streaked to victory in both
the 50 and 100 yard races . . . Char-
ley Barker put on a terrific 15-yard
sprint that just fell short of catching
Prew in the shorter race . . . In the
century, Prew and Gus Sharemet
were even at the 50 but the Wayne
star pulled out ahead after the last
turn to beat Gus by a stroke.
