Wolverines Host to Triangular Track MeetB Louis Calls Rae

Youig, Kelley Will Be
Featured; Ufer, Hirsch
Swanson To Compete
Michigan's first and only outdoor
track meet of the season will get
under way Saturday at 1:45 p.m. on
the Ferry Field cinders when the
Wolverines play host to two strong
cinder squads from Illinois and Pur-
This triangular affair should prove
to be one of prime importance and it
is very likely that the winner will
go on to win the Big Ten champion-
ship at Champaign, Ill., May 27, as
these three track squads are the
strongest in Western Conference com-
Evidence of the power of these
teams is the fact that all of the
champions of the Big Ten indoor
meet except three will be running
with one of these squads.
The Illini, paced by Claude (Bud-
dy) Young, freshman sprint sensa-

tion, and Bob Kelley, are currently
given the nod to capture this meet.
Coach Ken Doherty of Michigan,
guessing at the final outcome of the
battle, gives the Illinois team 61
points, Michigan 54, and the Boiler-
makers 44.
Illinois Tops in Quadrangular
In a quadrangular meet held last
week among Illinois, Purdue, North-
western and Indiana, the Illini com-
pletely dominated the match, wrack-
ing up 80 points, with the nearest
competition coming from Purdue,
which had 49% points. Young, win-
ning three of the nine individual
events, and Kelley winning two single
affairs, set the fast tempo for the
thinclads from Illinois.
Young's first win was registered
in the broad jump as he hurtled 23
feet, 5 inches. He then tier an
Illinois track record in the century
sprint in the fast time of :09.6. His
final feat of the day was to break
the existing University record in the
220-yard dash, as he broke the tape

in :20.9. These two sprint marks
were especially heartening to the
Illiois coach as these feats were per-
formed in chilly weather.
Young May Rival Jesse Owens
The 220 yard record breaking time
of Young was only three-fifths of a
second under the time that Jesse
Owens set as a Big Ten mark while
wearing the Ohio State banner. On
the basis of his past performances,
this Negro flash is conceded the first
to have a chance to equal the feats
of Owens in 1935, when he smashed
records for the 220-yard dash, 220-
yard low hurdles, broad jump, and
tied the world mark in the 100-yard
sprint. Young is also scheduled to
run in each of the aforementioned
Kelley, who ran the mile for the
first time in his career, came in first,
running it in 4:26.3, as well as taking
a first in the half mile. Kelley, whose
duels with Bob Ufer of the Maize and
Blue in the 440, have featured each
battle of these two schools, will again
be competing in the highlighted event
of the day, if Coach Ken Doherty de-
cides to let "Bullet Bob" run against
him in the quarter mile. Ufer has
always beaten Kelley indoors, but
Kelley holds the edge over the "Hose
Nose" outdoors.
Swanson, Hirsch Are to Compete
Although Michigan won the Big
Ten indoor crown by scoring an
avalanche of 751/ points, 30 points
ahead of second place Illinois last
March, the rapid improvement of the
Illini squad bodes no good for Michi-
gan. However, Coach Doherty hopes
to have the services of Elmer Swan-
son, who won both hurdle titles in
the indoor Conference meet, and
broad jumper Elroy Hirsch, in an
effort to tally a few important points.
That may be the deciding factor in
determining the victor of this all-
important battle.

What does anyone say when he sees an Arrow Tie?
He says, "It's swell !"-For several reasons. Arrows
are good-looking, in smart patterns and neat stripes.
Arrows are made well, with a special lining cut on

make perfect knots. Arrows are made of fine fabrics
