Thinclads Out
For New Title
If Michigan adds the Big Ten out-
door track championship to the in-
door crown won in March it will be
due in no small part to the brilliance
of four middle distance runners who,
as a two-mile relay team, won six
straight relay meet titles during the
indoor campaign. In their final ap-
pearance they bettered the accepted
world's indoor record for the event
by seven-tenths of a second.
They won two-mile relay trophies
at the Michigan State Relays, Mill-
rose Games, Chicago Relays, K. of C.
Games at both New York and Cleve-
land, and the Purdue Relays. Their
time in the purdue meet of 7:40.9
was the best of the season and cracks
the 7:41.6 by Georgetown, which has
stood as the world mark since 1925.
There is no reason why these men
cannot improve their individual
times by two seconds or more out,
doors," says Coach Ken Doherty of
the Wolverines. If they do so and
run again as a two-mile relay team
they will endanger California's out-
door world record of 7:34.5.
However, Ufer will concentrate on
the 440 outdoors rather than the,
hAlf, while Matthews and Hume may
run-both the 880 and mile and the
only relay meet in which they are
sure to run as a two-mile team will
be held 'at the start of the season
rather than at the end when they
will be in peak condition.
,Jack Decision
Booed by Fans
Por ten rounds Armstrong, return-:
ing to New York for the first time
since he started his booming come-
back last fall, chased the younger,
supposedly more powerful Jack all
around the ring. And for ten rounds
the ex-shoe-shine boy from Georgia
kept on the run, desperate to stay out
of harm's way and landing only at
long range.
Tht was the pattern of the fight
from start to finish, and at the end
the Associated Press score card gave
Armstrong five rounds, voted four for
Jack and called one even.
Though the decision was unani-
mous on the part of referee Billy Cay-
aauIgh and Judges Bill Healy and
George ILetr on,,it didn't, sit at all, well
with the crowd of 19,986. They -went
wild with cheers at Hammerin' Hank
climbed through the ropes at the
end; they booed as Jack headed for
his dressing room.

Intramural Sport Shots

With "warm" weather in our
midst, PEM has been making plans
to work out in the open. .
The instructors are getting ready
to take their PEM classes outdoors
and give the students an oppor-
tunity to breathe Ann Arbor's body-
building ozone. Students now at-
tending PEM classes at the IM will
find that a strenuous outdoor pro-
gram has been planned for them in
order that they will enter the armed
forces in fine athletic condition.
For those students who enjoy
rough body contact and "extra"
workouts, the little publicized game
of soccer, will be available. Cross
country and track will also be held
for the fellows down at the IM and
it is expected that as many will turn
out for these sports as did last year.
The "obstacle course" that is
known throughout the nation for
its toughness has been made even
tougher, and all of the students
will have to take a try at the
course at least once while they
are in PEM. This course is admit-
tedly much harder than many of
those now being used by our armed

forces to condition our soldiers for
Volleyball, boxing, wrestling and
gymnastics have also been moved
outside for the coming term so that
the students may continue their
favorite sports outdoors.
Towards the end of the present
session the annual outdoor "all-
school" championship track meet
will be held and this will be followed
by other all-school meets in soft-
ball, golf and tennis. Each year
outstanding features of the Intra-
mural sports program are these
championships, which are held in
the above-named fields. Fraterni-
ties, residence halls, independents,
cooperative houses and professional
fraternities enter, not only to try for
their group title but in hopes of an-
nexing the "all-school" champion-
ship trophy to their honors.
Many of the members of the sports
teams at the U. of M. have received
their start in athletics through the
intra-school athletic tournaments
that have been under the super-
vision and guidance of the IM pro-
gram on campus.

'Golf Course
Opens Today
Barring chin-deep snow and
northern winds colder than yester-
day's chilly breezes, the University
golf course will throw open its gates
to Michigan students and the gen-
eral public today.
An even-temperatured winter and
heavy snows helped to preserve the
greens and fairways. Greenskeeper:
Bill Slack reported that the course
was in the best condition it had been
at this time in years.
Bill Barclay, seven-letter winner
at Michigan and now assistant bas-
ketball and football coach, will man-
age the course this season. A grad-
uate in 1937, Bill was state amateur
golf champion in 1939.
Par for the 18-hole course, con-
sidered one of the finest in the state,
is 72, 36 out and 36 strokes in.
All League House and Coopera-
tive House presidents who did not
attend the House Presidents meet-
ing and who have not as yet ob-
tained the Aptitude Test Material
must pick it up between 10 a.m.
