Sport Shots
One of the highlights of the whole
I-Mlseason takes place tomorrow
night when the Residence Halls and
the Independents hold their annual
track meets. The contests will start
at 7:30 p.m., with both divisions
competing at the same time.
The dorms are displaying the
strongest squads in many a day,
so Williams House; the defending
champs, will have its hands full in
defending the crown.
The Forestry Club is looming as a
strong contender for the Independent1
track crown. Robert Owen House,
the defending champions, are weaker
this year because of graduation, but
can be counted on to give the For-
esters a run for their money.
All Independent groups inter-
ested in participating in the meet
are urged to submit their entries
to Earl Riskey of the I-M Depart-
ment before 5 o'clock tomorrow
The foul-shooting contest has
caused such a wave of interest that
the I-M Department has extended
the contest through tomorrow
night. All divisions are entitled to
compete, with the winners being
announced the first part of the
Buddy Gilbert holds the all-cam-
pus foul-shooting crown with a score
of 89 out of a possible 100. Gilbert
is back to defend his crown again this
year, and from the way he has been
shooting in practice there will be no
new champion this season.
The fraternity track meet this
Thursday night should prove one
of the most exciting events of the
I-M season. Phi Gamma Delta is
the defending champions but will
need more than its past laurels to
win the title again this year.l
Jim Rae, ex-Varsity star, is carry-
ing on his excellent basketball in
the Professional Fraternity League.
Playing on the Nu Sigma Nu team,
the lanky pre-medic will lead his
team into the semi-finals against

winner of this match will meet Phi

National Collegiate Wrestling
Tourney To Be Held At State

Recapitulation of the current
Michigan freshman indoor track sea-
son is synonymous with the success
story of the twin thunderbolts from
Canonsburg, Pa., Bob and Ross Hume,
and hurdler Elmer Swanson.
The combination of innate ability,
powerful physique, joy of competi-
tion and determination has been
fused by Freshman Coach Chet
Stackhouse into three of the choicest
frosh prospects ever to compete un-
der the Yost Field House roof!
One glance at the resume of the
now-completed indoor frosh cam-
paign reveals a Hume monopoly of
the top times in the three distance
events-880 yards, one and two miles.
Ilume Twins Shine
Let's start with the 880-yard run.
Stack's No. 1 man, Ross Hume,
stands out as a definite varsity pros-
pect. His near-record time of 1:58.1
is one of the best frosh marks regis-
tered in years. Brother Bob holds
down runner-up spot with a 2:00.4
performance. Art Upton's 2:01.9 and
Paul Harsha's 2:02.8 are worthy of
mention. Art Mancl and Bill Wheat-
ley have also cracked 2:05.
In the mile we find Stack's head
guy is Bob Hume with a superb 4:28.7
clocking. And brother Ross is right
in there pitching with a 4:30.6 mark.
Upton's 4:35.7 is creditable. Seven
others have cracked 4:50.
Bob Hume is supreme in the two-
mile run and is the only current
plebe to crack 10 minutes. His time
of 9:58 sets him up as another varsity
hope. Brother Ross has a 10:02.8
mark, while Roy Currie and Hal
Schulte have both run under 10:15.
Harsha Tops In Quarter
Harsha is tops among the quarter-
milers. The diminutive freshman has
stepped off the 440 yards in 51.7
seconds. Ross Hume's 53.1 is next

best. Bill Wheatley, Bob Walker, Er-
nie Whitlock, Ralph Gibson and Bill
Osgood have dipped under 54 seconds
The glint in Stack's other eye
comes from the efforts of 190-pound
Elmer Swanson in the hurdles. This
burly plebe has tied the frosh record
of 8.4 seconds in the 65-yard high
hurdles and the 7.5 mark in the 65-
yard lows. Russ Reader's 8.5 in the
highs and 7.7 in the lows sets him
up as a threat.
Nothing exceptional has been ac-
complished in the six remaining
events. Joe Egan's 6.5 is the best
mark turned in for the 60-yard dash.
Swanson and Reader have done 6.6.
Walker's 23.8 is tops in the 220-yard
In the four field events, Trueman
Atkinson's 11 feet 3 inches in the
pole vault is most noteworthy. Gor-
don Kretchmar has vaulted 11 feet.
The shot putters are weak. Harold
Kruse's toss of 38 feet 8 inches is
tops. Reader's leap of 21 feet 5'4
inches in the broad jump is the best
frosh mark of the season. Lyman
Flook tops the high jumpers with his
leap of 5 feet 10 inches.
Coach Stackhouse will open out-
door practice on the quarter-mile
cinder track at Ferry Field in about
two weeks.
Leafs Beat Rangers
TORONTO, March 21.-1)-The
Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the
New York Rangers, 3-1, here tonight
to take a one-game lead in the semi-
finals of the Stanley Cup playoffs
for the world championship.

Spring football practice opens to-
morrow for the 1942 Michigan grid
squad when approximately 50 players
will answer Head Coach H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler's call for pre-season drill.
Weather permitting, the gridders
will inaugurate the six-week train-
ing session at Ferry Field. Other-
wise, the players will workout in
Yost Field House until they can really
accomplish something outdoors on the
grass-covered turf.
The big task facing Crisler and his
coaching staff will be finding a player
to fill the shoes of All-American Bob
Westfall who held down the fullback
spot for three years in a row.
Unless Uncle Sam intervenes be-
tween now and the official football
season in September, 14 lettermen
will be back, including Capt. George
Ceithaml and Elmer Madar, quarter-
backs; Tom Kuzma, Paul White and
Don Robinson, halfbacks; Don Boor,
fullback; Jack Karwales, Rudy Sie-
ja and Phil Sharpe, ends; Al Wistert
and John Laine, tackles; and Bob
Kolesar, Merv Pregulman and Julius
Franks, guards.
However, all of these letter winners'
will not be out for spring practice.
White, Robinson and Boor are out
for Ray Fisher's Varsity nine while
several outstanding freshman candi-
dates are playing frosh baseball un-
der Coach Ernie McCoy.
Besides last year's captain, West-
fall, Crisler has lost his two regular
ends of the 1941 season, Joe Rogers
and Harlin Fraumann; his two cen-
ters, Bob Ingalls and Ted Kennedy;
three tackles, Reuben Kelto, last sea-
son's most valuable Wolverine player,
Bob Flora and Leo Cunningham;
guard Bill Melzow, and halfbacks,
Davey Nelson and Harold Lockard,
who begins military service very soon.
According to scheduled plans, the
Wolverines will play 10 games this
fall which includes two with service
teams that have not been selected,
and the fact that spring training will
not be interrupted by the usual 10-
day vacation period will greatly aid
the coaching staff in determining
what to expect in the fall.

The National Collegiate Wrestling
tournament will be held in East Lan-
sing March 27 and 28.
That's one way of saying it.
Another way is to state that, be-
ginning Friday afternoon next, an
even 100 men representing the very
cream of the nation's top-flight
wrestlers will pair off and launch a
gigantic elimination tourney which
will ultimately determine two things:
a) The eight best individual col-
legiate wrestlers in these United
States, and
b) The best collegiate mat team in
the same territory.
Oklahoma A&M Favored
Six of last year's national title win-
ners will be on hand to defend their
honors, and Oklahoma A&M, the per-
ennial team champion, will once again
be out to repulse each and every
assault made against its long-stand-
ing invincibility. And in all likeli-
hood all defending titleholders are
going to have a hot time of it reclaim-
ing their baubles.
Twenty-five schools are entering
the tourney, a substantial number
of them with complete eight-man
squads to bid for the team trophy.
Pennsylvania, recently crowned East-
ern Collegiate mat champion, will
make a mighty bid to kick the Okies
loose from that team trophy. Colo-
rado State copped the Rocky Moun-
tain Conference top spot this year
and now its octet is smacking its col-
lective lips and eyeing the national
title in a very coolly calculating way.
Purdue Strong
Purdue is not shooting its face off
but the power in four weight di-
visions which the Boiler Boys demon-
strated in the recent Western Con-'

Gus Sharemet, President

ference meet bids fair to one and all
to watch their smoke. And finally,
an insult it would be to overlook the
surcharged Michigan State aggrega-
tion which last year took second in
the Nationals and this year in a dual
meet gave the Oklahoma supermen a
terrific fright before being nosed
out, 19-15.
There will of course be other com-
plete eight-man crews intent upon
carrying off the team crown so proud-
ly borne by the A&M-ers. But in
addition some schools will only enter
men in those events in which they
have a strong chance of winning
through to glory. Three of the six
defending individual champs are
Oklahoma's, the Spartans have two
and Pennsylvania one.
These boys well know that the heat
is now squarely upon them because
as regards the National Collegiates
one can be very sure that there will
be no hackers present. In. every
weight division it is strictly a battle
between experts. And it stands to
reason that only the most expert ex-
pert will win.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., March 21.

Bill Nary, Rancho Sante Fe, Calif.,
and his amateur partner, Freddie
Haas, New Orleans, defeated the
medalist team of Al Brosch, Farm-
ingdale, N.Y., and Harry Offut, St.
Petersburg, Fla.

Memories of that Chicago meet with
its world records and its disappoint-
ing mile will linger long. Fred Wol-
cott's world standard of five seconds
flat in the 40-yard high hurdles was
the only new mark set. He tied
the 50 and 60-yard high hurdle
Michigan's thirds came in the two-
mile relay, Bob Ufer's effort in the
600-yard dash and Al Thomas' bid
in the 60-yard sprint. Al added two
fourths in other dash events.
Disappointing was Campbell Kane
who won the Banker's Mile in a slug-
gish 4:20.4. It was especially bad
when stacked alongside Greg Rice's
4:23 clocking in the last half of his
two-mile run. The chesty little fugi-
tive from Notre Dame won a heated
duel from Gil Dodds in 8:53 and re-
ceived the roaring approval of the
15,000 fans.
