Track Squad
Pointing for
State Relays
Michigan To Send 30
Men;- ier Ib Entered
Impressive winners of Tuesday
night's dual encounter with Michigan
State, the Wolverines will send a full
squad of thirty men to the Michigan
State Relays at East Lansing Satur-
The only team sending more than
Michigan will be Notre Dame with 33
men. Ohio State and Indiana are
bringing small but powerful squads.
Rounding out the ten-team field are
Michigan State, Michigan Normal,
Western Michigan, Kalamazoo, Al-
bion and Central Michigan.
Ufer To Run 300
No team championship will be at
stake, but individual runners will be
gunning for records. A special invi-
tational 300-yard dash is expected to!
be the outstanding event on the pro-
gram. Bob Ufer, NCAA 440-yard
champion, will carry the Wolverine
hopes. Running against him are Rus-
sell Owen, Ohio State, Sugar Bowl
440-yard winner, and perhaps Gene
Fehlig from Notre Dame's record-
holding mile relay team.
Altogether there are 18 events
scheduled, including eight relays and
ten individual contests. Competing
will be track aces from all over the
midwest. Beside the 300-yard en-
trants, the ollowing outstanding per-
formers will be in the limelight: Dave
Matthews, Michigan's distance star;
Dallas Dupre, hurdler and sprinter
from Ohio State; Ollie Hunter, Notre
Dame's intercollegiate cross-country
champion; and Jim Delaney, shot-
putting wizard from Notre Dame.
Strong in 880
Tuesday night's meet gave notice
to the Big Ten track world that the
Wolverines have something this year.
Half milers everywhere have room
for worrying when reading the results
of the 880. The race was a grand
slam for Michigan with John Roxbor-
ough, Ross Hume and Art Upton
crossing the finish line in that order.
The Wolverine two-mile relay team
looks like a sure contender for first
place honors anywhere. The speedy
quartet carrying the baton is made
up of Roxborough, Ross Hume, Mat-
thews, and Ufer.
Elmer Swanson and Chuck Pinney
performed like champion hurdlers in
the dual fray, Swanson taking the 65
highs in almost record time of 8.3
seconds, and Pinney capturing the
65 lows with a time of 7.5 seconds.
Swanson was also second in the lows,
just a step behind Pinney.

Kentucky Derby Will Be Held

CHICAGO, Feb. 10. --A) - Te
Kentucky Derby will not become a
war casualty.
Col. T. T. Winn, who has con-
ducted America's premier three-year-
old classic for 41 years, said tonight
the race would be run on May 1 as
scheduled, and pledged full coopera-
tion with government officials in re-
stricting attendance.

Daily Sports EditorA
It was a "reversal of position" for
Michigan over Michigan State last
night at Yost Field House as the sur-
prising Wolverine grapplers squeezed
out a 16-14 victory before several
hundred rabid fans. The Spartans
won the first match at home, 16-14.
The margin of victory turned out
to be Captain Manley Johnson's sec-
ond-period pin of Michigan State's
national champion, Bill Maxwell, in
the 145-pound division. The Wol-
verine captain was at his best'as he
slammed Maxwell's shoulders to the
mat in 5:20.
Kopel Pins Again
Dick Kopel opened the fireworks
by pinning State's Herbie Thompson
in 8:07 after having things his way
during most of the bout. Kopel, who
ordinarily wrestles at 128 pounds,
moved down to 121 pounds last night
as part of Coach Ray Courtright's
State evened the score in the sec-
ond match of the card when Merle
Jennings, Spartan national champion
wrestling at 128 pounds, slammed
Larry Loftus in 2:55. It had been a
short but bruising battle.
Both Jennings Triumph
The other half of the Spartans'
wrestling twins, Burl Jennings, also
a national champion, didn't have too
much trouble with the game Hal Ru-
del, and won the 136-pound bout by
an 8-1 score.
The Johnson-Maxwell bout was
easily the most colorful and exciting
on the program. The Wolverine cap-
tam opened with a quick take-down,
but Maxwell "escaped" and followed
up with a take-down to take a tem-
porary lead. However, it was all John-
son after the first three minutes until

the watch showed 5:20, when Max-j
well's shoulders caressed the mat.
Speek Wins Close One
Iggy Konrad, 134-pounder, subbed
for John Marrs at 155 pounds, and
lost in an overtime battle to Pete
Speek of Michigan after putting up a
game scrap all the way. The score was
