Three hundred of the finest high
school track stars in Michigan will
vie for state-wide honors here today
as the Michigan Varsity cinder squad
plays host to the fourth annual River
Rouge invitational high school trackc
meet at Yost Field House. '
The preliminaries of the high}
school meet will begin at 4:30 p.m.,
and the finals are slated to be run
off starting at 7:30 p.m. with Ann'
Arbor High School the defending
champion. Members of the Varsity
team will officiate at both the after-
noon and evening sessions and the
public is invited to attend.
Preceding the meet, Wolverine
Coach Ken Doherty and his charges
will get the annual track carnival
under way with a track clinic, sched-
uled to begin at 2 p.m., at which time
the Varsity team will put on an ex-
hibition for the benefit of the high
school athletes and coaches, and the
spectators. Every member of the
Michigan squad will display his
wares at this clinic, giving the high
school boys a chance to see some of
the best thinclad stars in the Big Tenf
in action. ,.
The Varsity's performance this
afernoon will prove of added inter-
est to Michigan track fans, for it
will give the Wolverine boosters their
first chance to see the sprint relay
teams which will compete in the

Earl T. Martieai , assistant Var-
sity football coach, disclosed yester-
day that he will probably enter the
United States Marine Corps as a first
lieutenant within eight weeks.
Martineau, who has maintained his
standing in the Marines Reserve
Corps ever since he was an officer
in the last World War, said that he
had received an official memoran-
dum as to his induction but no an-
nouncement as to his future duties'
had been made by his superiors.
The Wolverine backfield mentor
had a brilliant record in the Marines
in the last war. He won the Croix de
Guerre, Purple Heart, Silver Star,
the Distinguished Service Cross, three
general order citations, and four reg-
imental citations for gallantry in ac-
tion and went through every major'
American battle in France.
When Coach Fritz Crisler was told
that Martineau may leave the staff
soon he remarked, "Michigan will
feel the loss keenly," and added,
"Marty and I have worked together
through ten football seasons, six at
Princeton and four here, and if there
is a better backfield coach in the
country I have yet to hear of him."
Sport scribes throughout the na-
tion have given Martineau much of
the credit for developing Tom Har-
mon into one of the greatest all-
around halfbacks in football history,
and for building Bullet Bob West-
fall into the best fullback of the 1941
Ray Fisher To Annouce
The Wolverine baseball team was
forced inside the Yost Field House
to practice yesterday afternoon for
the first time in more than a week
because of bad weather.
Coach Ray Fisher limited the after-
ncon's activities to simple limbering
up because he was afraid any bat-
ting exercises might upset the play-
3rs' timing. The Wolverine coach
feels that once the boys get a chance
to bat outdoors it's a poor policy to
let them hit inside because of the
difference in lighting.
Mickey Fishman, on whom Fisher
is counting as a starting pitcher,
has been troubled by a head cold
that has kept him out of practice the
last five days. The husky senior has
been taking it easy in an effort to
be in perfection condition for the
Another Wolverine who has been
on the sick list is Bud Jessop, who
came down with the measles last
Monday. The scrappy little catcher
is fully recovered now and will be
able to work out in today's practice.
After today's practice Fisher will
post the names of the players who
will make the spring trip whiclf starts
April 15. Ray plans to take six in-
fielders, five pitchers, and four out-
fielders besides himself, the team
manager, Joe Hallissy, and 'Hal Wil-

Criser Produces Great Teams
Desvite P re-Season Handicaps
By AL STEINMIAN
Problems concerning material forI
football teams are nothing new for
Fritz Crisler, coach of the Wolverine
gridders. He has always had diffi-
culties which have stood in the way
of successful campaigns, but some-
how or another he has continually
come up with the right men.
In the start of his first season
back in 1938, Crisler watched a
strong, aggressive squad go through
its daily workouts. The line looked,
fairly sturdy with Ralph HeikkenenI
and Archie Kodros leading the as-
sault, but the backfield seemed to
lack spark. It was quite obvious that
unless Crisler found some good backs
among the sophomores, the Wolver-
ines would not fare so well in the
Harmon, Evashevski Give Punch
The two outstanding newcomers of
the session proved to be one Tom
Harmon and a fellow named Forest
Evashevski. Everyone knows how
Tom and Evy went on to be sensa-
tions in the fall and provided just
the punch needed to insure a good
As the following year rolled around,
an entirely new problem greeted
Crisler and his assistants. The year
before it was the backfield, and now
it was the line. They weren't wor-
ried so much about a starting team
because they had a group of capable
veterans back, but the replacement of
regulars was a cause for many head-
aches. After all Michigan played
the nation's best outfits and without
suitable reserve power it would be at
a decided disadvantage.
Probably the greatest worry at the
time was over the center position be-
cause although Captain Kodros had
a reputation for being a full game
man, if he were injured no proven
substitute was around to carry on.
All that Crisler could rely upon was
an unproven player named Bob In-
galls. Kodros did get hurt during,
the season and Ingalls stepped right
in and proved to be a most capable
It was the reserve line problem
again in 1940, and Al Wistert ap-
peared to become one of the stars
of the forward wall and greatly re-
lieve the situation.
Same Story Last Year
Of course, we all know the story
of last year's football picture. Har-
mon, Evashevski, Frutig, Fritz and
other stars were novlonger here, and
very few would give the Wolverines
much hope for a championship
caliber team. Among the stars that
emerged from spring practice were
Tom Kuzma and Paul White, backs,
and Merv Pregulman and Julius
Franks in the line. These boys
greatly helped to make an otherwise
sad football picture, turn into a
very successful season.
Now Coach Crisler is once again
faced with the problem of finding re-
serves. Merv Pregulman is doing well,
I at the center position, but beyond
him no one has as yet shown him-
self. The new fullbacks and line-
men have yet to stand the test of
action. However, if Crisler's record
repeats itself, he will find the re-
serve power needed in order to in-I
sure a good season for the Wolverines
