Six Trackmen
Depart Today
For California
Michigan Teams Will Run
Mile, Two-Mile Relays;
Hoosiers Also In Field
By BOB STAHL
With the prospect of facing some of
the best runners in the country, a
crew of six Wolverine trackmen, ac-
companied by Coach Ken Doherty
will set out at 7 p.m. today by plane
from Detroit for Los Angeles, where
they will compete in the Los Angeles
Coliseum on Saturday.
Michigan will have both a mile re-
lay team and a two-mile relay team
entered in this meet. Al Thomas,
Jack Leutritz, Bob Ufer, and Warren
Breidenbach will make up the team
for the shorter distance, while Dave
Matthews, Johnny Kautz, Breiden-
bach and Ufer will run in the two-
mile relay.
Will Face Three Teams
The Wolverines will face three
other teams in these two 'events,
any or all of which are capable of
breaking the existing American rec-
ords. The two-mile race, especially,
will see plenty of good running. The
University of California team is fav-
ored to break the American collegiate
record of 7:37.8 seconds, set by Stan-
ford last year, bul Drake University
and Indiana will also compete, both
presenting a squad of runners who
are potentially capable of setting a
new mark.
California will also go into the
meetas probable favorites in the mile
relay. The Bears have two of the
best quarter milersinvthe country,
in the persons of Grover Klemner,
who has consistently run the distance
in 47 seconds flat, and Len Barnes,
who has run 47.8 seconds several
times, and the other two members
of the team are also excellent sprint
stars.
Meet Hoosiers Again
The Wolverines will have a chance
to face some of the Hoosiers who
nosed them out in the Big Ten meet at
Minneapolis last Saturday. Paced by
Campbell Kane, the new Big Ten 880
champion, the Hoosiers will also have
little Roy Cochran and Paul Kendall,
who placed one-two in the 440 yard
dash, and Wayne Tolliver, who won
the two-mile race.
But Indiana California, and Drake
will also find plenty of competition
in the running of the Wolverines. On
the two-mile team, Breidenbach is the
present record-holder for having run
the half-mile leg in the fastest time
in Michigan's history, and Kautz and
Matthews have run under 1:54 sec-
onds. Ufer, the fourth member of
the team, has not competed at the
880 distance this year, concentrating
on the quarter-mile.
In the mile relay, Breidenbach has
run the quarter in 47.1 seconds, while
Thomas, Ufer and Leutritz have all
run the distance under 48 seconds.

lead in the third by scoring three
runs on one hit. Mike Sofiak started
proceedings by hitting a sharp single
to left. With George Harms at bat,

Harms walked on the, next pitch.

scoring Sofiak and Harms, with
Gould going all the way to third.
Nelson sent Mase home with the final
run of the frame by hitting a long
fly to center.
The varsity scored two more runs in
the fifth after two were out. Gould
walked and went to second when Nel-
son punched a single to right on the
first pitch. Whitey Holman came
through with =a hard single to center
scoring Gould and sending Nelson to
third. Dave came home when Chris-
tenson got a scratch hit off Campag-
na's glove. Subby got a lucky break

when Wakefield's long drive to cen-
ter was caught by Andy Chlebeck,
after a hard run, for the final out.
Nowicki was lifted in the sixth after
he loaded the bases with none out.
Harms, first to face Fred Metzger,
new Irish pitcher, worked the count
to three and two and then walked,
forcing in Chamberlain. Mase Gould
got on for the third straight time
when Ray Pinelli fumbled his easy

Good In Defeat
Fife Cards 69 In Match
With Conference Kings
By DON MELA
DIVOT DIGGINGS:
Despite the defeat at the hands of
Illinois, the golfers played good ball
on their weekend trip. The really
significant figures on the 231/2 to
121/2 reversal at Illinois are: matches
halved, three; matches won by one
hole, three. Given a familiar course,
the Wolverines might have made
things w lot tougher for the Con-
ference champions .--
Bib Fife's 69 -at Champaign still
has the boys talking. In carding this
fine score, Fife accumulated five
birdies and an eagle. On the sixth
hole, a par four, 436-yard hole, he
put the ball in the hole on his second
shot from a distance of over 200
yards, for the equivalent of a hole-
in-one on a par three hole . .
There was a reason for the re-
markable comeback that the squad
made against Northwestern on Mon-
day, when they started the after-
noon matches trailing by a score
of six to three. It seems that the
boys were quite annoyed at the ac-
tions of a few of the Wildcat players
in smoothing off the greens, which
is technically wrong. So they held
a council before the afternoon's play
began and vowed to trounce the
Wildcats. The results of the after-
noon matches: Michigan 15, North-
western 3 ....
Laryngitis caught up with John
Leidy at Evanston and stopped the
usually steady stream of wisecracks
that he puts forth. Amore serious
victim of the throat infection was
the winning streak in the doubles
which Leidy and Johnny had
brought through the season with
them...
For a while it looked as though the
team would have to become students
at Northwestern after Coach Court-
right's car keys had severed diplo-
matic relations with his pocket some-
where on the golf course .. .
Williams, Greene
Ho uses Triumph
In Softball Playoff
By MARV BORMAN
Williams House, leaders in the
dormitory athletic contest, unleashed
its full power yesterday afternoon
with a 12-5 victory over Lloyd House
in the first place softball playoffs at
South Ferry Field. Brilliant pitching
by steady hurler Ham Fisher, a home-
iun by little Dick Belford and a spirit-
ed infield enabled the Williamites to
stem an early lead and end on top.
Williams House will play in the soft-
ball finals next week against Pres-
cott House.
In the second place playoffs, Greene
House defeated Wiichell, 7-2, to bring
the bacon home to the East Quad.
Fletcher House swamped Chicago
House, 11-2, in the third place play-
offs, while Tyler walloped Adams
Hiouse, 17-7, in the fourth place
bracket. Michigan I-louse edxd out
Wenley Iouse, 11-10, in another sec-
ond place elimination.
Beta Theta Pi scored an d 84vic-
tory over Delta Tau Delta in a first
place playoff game. Acacia bombard-
ed Alpha Sigma Phi, 13-2, and Sig-
ma Chi eliminated Phi Epsilon Pi,
10-3, in a third place playoff.
Delta Kappa Epsilon won their first
place playoff over Triangle, 4-2.
Deke's star pitcher, Dwyer, fanned 13
Triangles in six innings. Phi Alpha
Kappa took a full measure of Phi
Delta Epsilon, 5-4.

Both dormitory and fraternity soft-
ball teams will play their champion-
ship games in the coming week to
bring the year's Intramural contests
to a close.

JANE RUSSELL, the buxom object
of a recent bit of legislation on
the part of Will Hays and his Holly-
wood crew of moral-protectors, is
also the imminent object of a regis-
tered letter from Ann Arbor.
Posted yesterday, the letter,
which some fortunate employe of
Uncle Sam will have the pleasure
of delivering to Miss Russell in
person, bears the collective hopes
of a half-dozen Wolverine track-
men for a date with the rising
young movie starlet.
Some of the six spikemen who will
leave by plane this evening for the
Los Angeles Coliseum Relays Satur-
day, it seems, looked over the "sweat-
er art" of Miss Russell, which has
been displayed with pleasurable regu-
larity in the nation's picture maga-
zines lately, decided that they'd not
be averse to a closeup view of the
original, and dashed off, the message.

DOC MAY, SPORTS-SCIENFTST:
BroughtPrecision To Track Starting

Make this Easy Test'
Prove To Yourself That This Summer Suit Holds Its Press I

By IIQE SELTZER
Folks, step right up and meet Dr.
George May, the man who made a
science of starting trackmen from
their marks.
When Doc came to Michigan in
1901, immediately after receiving his
medical degree at Yale, he was assis-
tant to Keene Fitzpatrick, who wa§
among other things the Varsity track
coach. Thus Doc received his primer
course in starting as he helped Fitz-
patrick whip his runners into shape.
At that time.it was customary for
starters to stand behind the sprinters,
in order that the latter never suspect,
when the gun would crack. But it
occurred to Doc's analytical mind
that if the runners couldr't see the
starter, neither could the official keep
an eye on them to see that no skul-
duggery be perpetrated. Such little
bits of cheaty-cheaty, that is, as
edging the hands in front of the
tape or rocking slowly forward in
order to jump the rest of the field.
'Acuity Of Vision'
So Doc asked Fritz if it would be
O.K. to stand abreast the sprint-
ers in order to keep them in his
"acuity of vision." And when Fitz
said it was jake by him the sports
scientist planted himself in this un-

precedented position, where he for- three types one can appreciate that
evermore forestalled the nasty devices it takes no little patience and acute-
of those who tried to run with their ness of vision to effect a fair start.
wits instead of their legs. The fast starter gets jittery and

Now Doc has a very funny notion
about starting a race. He believes that
everyone should get an even break.
And for it he has been censored and
even cursed roundly, because he will
call the lads back again and again
until he is satisfied that the entiire
field has broken cleanly. And what
complicates things and makes start-
ing a headache for the man with the
Derringer is that there are three types
of starts common among dashmen:
a. The quick start. At the "get set"
signal the man is up off his knee like
a shot and distributes his weight in
a split-second.
b. The slow start. The sprinter
comes into the "get set" position
slowly, it requiring him some time to
balance,4his weight properly.
c. The rolling start. This is the
ruse of the clever gent, who first
settles his weight on the legs, then
drifts it slowly forward onto his
hands. When the cannon pops he has
a significant advantage over the
others starting from dead inertia.
Now in a field representing all

jumps. Then he is afraid of being left
behind and hustles back into position.
But Doc waits until he is all set again
before sending them off.
Reassures Them First
Doc May knows that runners be-
come increasingly on edge as their
event approaches. That's why he hud-
dles them before each race and tells
them he's going to start them slowly.
He wants the boys to understand that
he won't fox them up. Even after
three false starts, when he might well
wax a bit rugged, he says, "Boys, I'm
the same old guy. I'll hold you all
afternoon until I get you off to an
even start." Sooner or later the com-
petitors catch on and make a clean
break on the gun.
When that finally happens Doc
twirls his six-shooter on his forefinger
and 'complacently watches the boys
sweep down the straightaway. For hE
knows that, if the runners blaspheme
from here to hell and back, the lac
who breaks the tape will be not the
cleverest, but the fastest man in the
race.
