the blocks in the semi-finals of the event and sprint-
ed the distance in 49.1 seconds, a full second faster
than the time turned in by Indiana's Harry Price,
winner of the second semi-final
Ufer's time in the semi-finals is
less than a second off the Ameri-
.an indoor record set by Hoosier
Roy Cochran last year and there
s a possibility that the speedy
Wolverine might put Cochran's
record in danger of its life when
the finals are run off tomorrow.
Al Thomas Frank McCarthy, versatile high-
scoring Michigan thinclad, upon whom a large bur-
den of Michigan's hopes for another title rest, add-
ed much to Wolverine hopes tonight. Competing
with an injured hip which he sustained in the Pitt
meet last week, McCarthy still managed to qualify
in the high hurdles and the broad jump. The husky
cinderman's biggest test still looms before him,l
however, with the high jump event not scheduled
to be run off until tomorrow.
Michigan's sprint star, Al Thomas, reaped his
share of laurels as he tied Farmer of Iowa for the
best qualifying time in the 60 yard dash with a fast
6.3 seconds. The blond speedster also qualified in
the low hurdles, placing behind Illinois' Olsen in the
semi-finals of that event. Chuck Pinney, sophomore1
Wolverine timber-topper, also raced to aqualifying
place in the low, running just a stride behind the
sensational Wright in the preliminary trials.
The best race of the evening occurred in the third
qualifying heat of the 880 yard run. With such stars
competing against each other as Bob Rehberg of
Illinois, Hoosier Paul Kendall, Buckeyes Ed Jones
and Ed Porter, and Michigan's Johnny Roxborough,
the race resolved itself into a solid conglomeration
of men, each fighting to break away from the
mass. Not until the last turn was Rehberg able to
turn on the heat and lead the pack to the tape. Rox-
borough, running on the outside for most of the dis-,
i __ _
tance in a vain attempt to pass the mob, was nosed
out of third place just a stride from the finish line
by Ohio State's Jones and failed to qualify.
With the finals in the track events and all the
field events still to be run off tomorrow, Ohio State
remains as favorite to carry home the first Big Ten
indoor track title in its history. Michigan and Illi-
nois, both of whom place more men in the qualify-
ing preliminary trails tonight, still loom very much
in the picture, however, and the ultimate outcome of
the meet remains as much an uncertainty as before.

CHICAGO, March 6.--Western Conference athletic directors, confer-
ring here in their most vital meeting in Big Ten history, emerged tonight
from the second stormy session of a three-day confab and presented their
far-reaching recommendations to Conference faculty representatives for
final action tomorrow.
Although the bulk of the important matters on the Conference agenda
have finally been hashed, out in long and sometimes violent discussions, most
of the precedent-shattering develop- - -- -- -
ments will not be announced until
late tomorrow. Recommendations
were submitted by the athletic direc-
tors to the faculty representatives at ..

Buffalo M ien To Announce
Winner At Swim Meet
By BUD LOW
The Michigan chapter of Scalp
and Blade announced yesterday that
it would present this year's swim-
ming trophy to the "most deserving"
senior swimmer next Saturday night
during the Western Conference meet
to be held here in Ann Arbor.
Scalp and Blade, an organization
of men from Buffalo, N. Y., made
public the announcement that the
annual trophy would be presented
this year to a senior member of Matt
Mann's swimming crew on the basis
of good sportsmanship, team spirit,
and general ability.
Robert Sager, president of the or-
ganization, stated that less emphasis
would be placed on whether or not
the chosen swimmer has beena so-
called "star" during his career, and
that perseverance and cooperation
would be considered more this year.
On this basis each senior member
of the varsity tank squad has an
equal opportunity to be chosen as the
recipient of the cup exemplifying the
outstanding natator who will be
graduated in June. Included in the
list of candidates for the award are
Capt. Dobby Burton, Dick Riedl, Gus
Sharemet, T-Bone Martin, and John
Past performances in previous
years will be ignored in determining
the winner because the organization
feels that the purpose of the award
is to stimulate interest and competi-
tive spirit among Matt Mann's
The Scalp and Blade swimming
trophy was presented for the first
time last year at the National AAU
indoor meet in the Sport Building
pool. Jim Welsh, Michigan's great
distance star, received the first cup
when he took two first places in the
Conference meet, a first and two sec-
onds in the National Intercollegiates,
and a third and fourth the night the
presentation was made.
Hockey Squad To Climax Home
Season Tonight With Tech Team
By STAN CLAMAGE
Local hockey fans receive their last
opportunity to see the Varsity in ac-
tion tonight when the Wolverines
tangle with Michigan Tech at 8 p.m.
in the Coliseum.
Fresh from their overtime 2-2 tie
last Thursday night, the two teams
meet in the fourth game of the 1941-
42 season. While the Maize and Blue
sextet will attempt to ring up the
first victory on home ice, the Miners
are shooting for the mythical state
puck title which the Wolverines
grabbed last year.
Maybe A Tie
Michigan's chances of retaining the
title are nonsexistent, having but two
ties to their credit against Tech. The
visitors took a single victory earlier
in the season, so the best that Eddie
Lowrey's team can do is to tie for the
title-and that means a win tonight.
If the Wolverines can tie the type
of play which they exhibited in the
final Minnesota clash, together with
the improved play of Hank Loud in
the nets, tonight's battle can have
more in store for the fans than many
previous contests. For the first time
in many contests, Michigan came
from behind on Thursday. And that's
a mighty important indication to be
Injury Big Difference
The loss of Captain Goldsmith to
the squad could easily have been the
difference betweeen a tie and a vic-
tory for the Wolverines Thursday.
Goldie had been improving with every
game, and was just reaching his peak.
Contrary to a previous statement,
Goldsmith didn't have the measles
(just a rash), but the severity of a
hemorrhage in the back is going to
keep the battling leader on the side-
lines again tonight.
Taking a quick gander at the game
two days ago, one big thing stands
out. Except for a few scattered min-
utes, the play in general by both
teams was a bit on the rugged side.
That was between the blue lines, but
here we pick up a transfer. Inside,
and in front of both nets, Fred Meyer
and Hank Loud turned in some of
the best net-minding seen in the Col-
iseum this year.
Tech Goalie Is Star
Meyer handled 34 shots almost
flawlessly, while Loud took the same
number, with ten to boot. The be-
spectacled Meyer brought many
moans from Michigan rooters when
he turned away at least a half dozen
shots that looked like sure things.
If you're looking for excitement
tonight, take the ident card out of
the other pants (or purse), and make
