Attitude on Athletics Clarified by Service Officials

Trackmen Vie
For Honors in
Tech Relays
A Michigan track squad, cut to 12
men by the loss of shot-putter George
Ostroot to the Army Air Force and
hurdler Bud Byerly due to an injury,
will battle it out with 36 other col-
leges and universi ies tonight at the
Illinois Tech Relays at Chicago.
Ostroot was ordered to report
March 22 by Air Force authorities
and has already left school. Bierly
injured a thigh muscle in the Confer-
ence meet and it has not responded
to treatment.
Squad Weakened
Coach Ken Doherty's depleted
squad, weakened also by the absence
of Cadtain Dave Matthews, Bob Ufer,
Ross Hume and John Roxborough
who are competing in New York to-
night, is not expected to place among
the leaders.
The Wolverines stand a good
chance to cop two meet titles-the
70-yard dash and the 70-yard low
hurdles. Burly Len Alkon and Chuck
Pinney, Conference champions in
these two events, respectively, are
rated an even choice to take the in-
dividual crowns.
Stiff Competition in Lows
Pinney will have stiff competition
from Jim Fieweger of Lawrence Col-
lege and Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-
Wallace College. Fieweger is the king
in the highs and lows, while Dillard
rates highly having beaten Ohio
State's Bob Wright and Michigan
Normal's Whitey Hlad in the recent
National AAU meet.
Michigan's Ernie Leonardi and Bob
Hume will run in the mile which
looms as a duel between Notre Dame's
Ollie Hunter III and Michigan State's
Bill Scott.
