tion -that will be Ann Arbor's
official designation for the next three
Starting at 9:30 a.m. today and
continuing into the wee hours of
Sunday morning, the National Vol-
leyball Championships will' be
staged in Michigan's vast Sports
Building. 'Seventeen crack teams
have already pitched camp here in
preparation for the long grind.
Continuous action will be the key-
note of the three-day affair with
play scheduled right through the day
and night with the exception of short
rest periods each day from 6 to 7:30
p.m. In last year's championship
meet at Philadelphia, the finals were
not finished until 2:30 a.m., so of-
ficials of the 1941 tournament are
promising nothing concerning the
time of completion of Saturday
night's final match.
Headed by two clubs from Cali-
fornia, the 17 teams traveled an
aggregate distance of over 30,000
miles in order to compete here. A
colorful crew of Texans, replete
with high-heeled boots and ten-
gallon bonnets, represent the Hous-
ton YMCA, which copped last year's
open title. Other powerful entries
in the tournament are outfits from.
North Avenue YMCA in Chicago,
and the local Ann Arbor team,
which has swept the state cham-
pionship for six years in a row.
ATRIO of track aces who led the
Sioux Falls, S.D., high school
track team to a state championship,
will be reunited at the Big Ten out-
door cinder scramble tomorrow and
Thursday at Minneapolis... but they
will be on different sides of the fence
this time.
Sioux Falls fans still remember
the time when its three now-fam-
ous sons, Jeff Hall of Michigan,
Bob Johnson of Minnesota, and
Don Timmerman of Wisconsin,
shattered six records in one day in
the state meet. The new standards,
which still exist, were set up by Hall

in the high and low hurdle events,
Timmerman in the high and broad
jump events and Johnson in the
100- and 220-yard dashes. Also
hurdling on the same team was
Dick Richards, leader of North-
western's football team last fall.
Tomorrow all three will renew their
friendship, and also their track rival-
ry. Michigan's Hall will be carrying
Wolverine hopes in the low hurdles,
an event in which the smooth-step-
ping senior scored a third place last
TIMMERMAN, the Cardinals' 6
foot 10 inch human toothpick,
played reserve center and forward
on Wisconsin's Big Ten and Na-
tional Collegiate basketball title-
winners last year. The tall lad will
compete against Michigan's Capt.
Don Canham and lanky Wes Allen
in the high jump Saturday.
Minnesota's crack speedster, John-
son, stands as a threat to Wolverine
hopes to win its fifth consecutive
outdoor crown mainly in his capaci-
ty as an integral part of the Gophers'
mile relay team. Last year the Minn-
esota quartet snatched an unexpected
victory from Michigan's favored four-
some, and if they happen to repeat
this year, it might mean the loss of
the crown for the Maize and Blue.
Playoffs Begin In National
Top-flight teams representing all
sections of the nation will take to the
courts of the I-M Building at 9:30
a.m. today in their quest for the na-
tional.volleyball championship.
Veteran teams, composed of players
35 or over, will compete throughout
the day until their championship is
decided late this evening. Play in
the open division will begin tomor-
row morning and the champion of
that division will be decided by Satur-
day night. Admission to the meet
for University students is 25 cents
for a single session or 50 cents for
the entire meet.

Varsity Seeks
Fifth Big Ten
Track Crown
A band of 27 Wolverine track war-
riors will leave for Minneapolis at
8:50 a.m. today to begin a quest
for their fifth consecutive Big Ten
outdoor track crown, bearing with
them the possibility of overpowering
the favorites, the Indiana ;Hoosiers,
and returning here with the crown
safely tucked away in their luggage.
On paper, the Indiana aggregation
is given a slight edge over the Wol-
verines on the basis of their victory
last winter in the indoor Conference
meet. With such potential first-place
winners as Campbell Kane in the mile
and half-mile,dRoy Cochran in the
220, the 440 and the low hurdles,
and Archie Harris in the shot-put
and discus, the Hoosiers appear to
possess a team which will be diffi-
cult to beat.
Varsity Has Balance
However, the Wolverines also have
their potential first-place winners,
besides a crew of men who may gain
additional valuable points and from,
previous indications, Michigan might
present a team which could overbal-
ance the first-place points of the
Wolverine Capt. Don Canham is
almost a sure bet to place first in
the high jump, with Wes Allen a
possible second place winner. Bob
Hook, the Wolverines' top weight man
who turned in the best throw of his
career last week, is also certain to
place at least second for Michigan in
the shot-put, and Warren Breiden-
bach is conceded a good chance of,
leading Indiana's Kane to the tape,
in the half-mile run.
Michigan Has Chance
With such other probable point-
winners as Al Piel and Al Thomas,
in the dashes, Perry Kimerer and(
Johnny Wise in the javelin, Frank
McCarthy and Neil Macintyre in
the high hurdles, and Charlie Deck-
er in the pole vault, it would appear
then that the Wolverines might turn
the trick on Indiana and the rest of
the field and win their fifth straight
The following men will make the
trip to Minneapolis: Bill Ackerman,J
Allen, hob Barnard. Breidenbach,
Canham, Decker, Jack Dobson, Bill
Dobson, Eldredge, Jeff Hall, Herb
Leake, Johnny Kautz, Kimerer, Tom-
my Lawton, Jack Leutritz, Dave Mat-
thews, McCarthy, MacIntyre, John
McKean, Piel, Bob Tillson, Thomas,
Bob Ufer, Wilbert Wedenoja, Karl

Gamon and Johnson earned two of
Michigan's three points as they beat

respectively, in the fourth and fifth
singles matches, Gamon winning 6-3,
7-5 and Johnson 8-6, 9-7. Bradley

In doubles, Gamon and Bacon gar-
nered the Wolverines' last point by
downing John Garvey and George
Pappas, 6-4, 6-1. In the first doubles,
match, the team of Canale and Parks
won a close one over Tobin and Ham-
mett, 7-5, 6-4. Stille and Schaf-
lander gave Joyce and Bittner a hard
fight before they finally bowed in
defeat, 6-3, 6-4.

Ferry Field has seen its share of
Big League scouts the last several
weeks . . . The bird dogs have been
giving special attention to Dick

right fielder. .. .
Capt. Bill Steppon is* still in the

They lead the Big Ten easily in

Fresh from winning their fourth
straight Big Ten golf match this sea-
son, Michigan's powerful linksmen are
practicing full blast this week as they
prepare to meet Illinois' conference
champions at Champaign Saturday.
Much more inexperienced than any
of their opponents, Coach Ray Court-
right's boys have upset the dope this
year, winning seven out of their first
nine matches. But this weekend it
will be "now or never" for the Wol-
verines. The Illini are the strongest
mashie-wielding bunch that Michi-
gan has met, taking all their dual
meets they have scheduled so far.
Most notable win was their decisive
victory over Northwestern's wildcats.
Coach Courtright expects to take
with him a larger squad than has yet
traveled for Michigan this year, the
Wolverine coach choosing eight men

to take the trip. Captain Fred Dan-
nenfelser, Ben Smith, Dave Osler, Bob
Fife, Johnny Barr, and Johnny Leidy
have already been selected. The
eighth man will be announced today,
Number one and two men respec-
tively, Ben Smith and Captain Dan-
nenfelser will lead the varsity into
action. "Old Faithful" Dannenfelser
tas consistently broken into the scor-
ing column this year, and is expected
to garner valuable points for the Wol-
verines. Lanky Smith has been the
main point of Michigan's attack in
past meets, and can practically be de-
pended upon to do plenty of damage
to the Illinois team score.
After meeting the Illini, Courtright
will take his boys to Evanston where
they will meet Northwestern's Wild-
cats on Monday.
