Buddy Young, the ace Illinois sprint-
er who has tied the American time

the man to watch, however, and
Michigan may have to rely on a
second or third.
Relay Team Given Chance
The mile relay team, which will
be trying out a new combination
for the first time this season, is being
considered as having a good chance
of bringing that title home. Willie
Glas, a last year member of the relay
team, will carry the baton along with
Bullet Bob Ufer, Fred Negus, last
fall's burly center, and Jim Pierce.
Bob Segula, who has showed he is
capable of reaching 13 feet on sev-
eral occasions, will be a promising
contender for the pole vault crown.
Should he show the form he display-
ed in the Millrose Games, the Chica-
go track fans are likely to see cham-
pionship vaulting.
Dale and Hirsch in High Jump
Bill Dale and Elroy Hirsch receive
the call in the jumps, and Dale may
clear the bar at better than six
feet to snare some points in the

Spartans Plan
For Football
Schedule in '44
CHICAGO, March 10.-(P)-Mich-
igan State, the only major midwest-
ern school to drop football last sea-
son, is planning to resume the sport
in 1944 if a satisfactory schedule can
be arranged, Ralph Young, Athletic
Director, today told Big Ten coaches
and directors at their annual winter
"Coach Charley Bachman and my-
self came to the meeting prospecting
for a schedule of games," said Young.
"If we find we can get some games, a
procedure which naturally is diffi-
cult since we've been out of action
for a year, we'll ask the Michigan
State faculty men to resume inter-
collegia e football."
The Spartans, canceling their 10-
game chart last year upon learning
that all their 145 players on the 1942
varsity and freshman sqads had de-
parted for the service, would like a
1944 schedule including six games
using civilian players and also renew-
al of their rivalries with Michigan,
Purdue and Marquette.
Michigan State, typical of schools
without Navy units, has no football
player personnel on hand at the pre-
sent but hopes to have enough men
by next fall to follow the other mid-
western schools and continue the

of the Michigan squad is capable of
hitting the board at better than 23'
Preliminaries in several of the
events will be run off this afternoon,
with the finals starting at 7:30 p.m.
(8:30 Eastern War Time). A capacity
crowd is expected to witness this
display of war-time track which
promises to equal or excel peace-time

Paul Trout Rejected
For Army Service
DETROIT, March 10.-(P)-Pitch-
er Paul (Dizzy) T-out, 20-game win-
ner for the Detroit Tigers last season,
was rejected for Army service today
and placed in 4-F by his Selective
Service board here.
Trout said he first was accepted
for limited service but later was re-
jected because his ears and eyes were
below Army standards. He is 28 years
old, married and the father of two
Trout said he would return at once
to Detroit's spring camp at Evans-
ville, Ind., where earlier this week he
received notice to report for a pre-
induction examination.

Football Again
Finanees Entire
Sports Program
Expenses of All Other
Teams Pass Earnings
Big King Football again paid for
the entire University sports program
in the fiscal year ending June 30,
1943, it was revealed yesterday by the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics annual report to the Board
of Regents.
The grid machine's net excess of
receipts over disbursements was over
$280,000, while that of the entire list
of athletic activities was only ap-
proximately $227,000, and the only
other events to show an excess were
the NCAA and Pacific Coast Track
Meets, whose total amounted to ex-
actly $35.46. All other sports shelled
out more than they took in with
track showing a deficit of over $12,-
The report also showed that foot-
ball attendance at all Michigan
games, at home and away, fell only
a little more than 100,000, even
though the Wolverines played one
less game and travel restrictions
were supposed to limit attendance
even more.

Coach Ray Fisher's pre-season
plans for his mound staff received a
sharp blow yesterday as Dick Drury,
the only veteran flinger remaining
from the '43 diamond campaign,
turned in his uniform at the Field
Drury, a local product who was
in the campus V-12 unit, received his
transfer orders from the Navy and
left for Great Lakes yesterday. The
loss of Drury left Fisher with a slim
list of possibilities in the pitching de-
Bob Wiese, who played in the out-
field last year, has been attempting
to make a switch to the mound staff,
and it is as yet too early to tell how
well he will be able to adapt himself
to his new role. Art Renner is also
trying his luck as a pitcher, but is in
approximately the same position as
A severe cut on the 80-man squad,

will occur Monday. Fisher expects to
make this slash on the basis of hit-
ting ability alone, although an out-
standing weakness of the squad may
be a lack of good infielders.
The team will take a rest from
practices this afternoon with the ex-
ception of the three pitchers, who
will be given a chance to warm up
thoroughly, eliminating an unfortun-
ate situation which has existed in
preliminary drills because of the
shortage of hurlers and the excess of
hitters who have had to get in their
licks at the plate. Fisher's flingers
have worked steadily for three days
with the squad, and engaged in a
brisk batting practice with the more
likely prospects in the cage yesterday.
Monday the team will again be
idle, making room in the Field House
for the JAG graduation exercises to
be held there. Tuesday, however,
Fisher will again have his charges
hard at work.

Refuses Date
To Meet Angott
NEW YORK, March 10.-(P)-
Something new was added today-
another twist-to the already snarled
lightweight fistic title situation.
It appears that Bob Montgomery
of Philadelphia, who won the NY-
NJ-Pa. version of the crown just a
week ago from Beau Jack, the Augus-
ta, Ga. shoeshine boy, is "too tired
to defend his laurels for a while."
The script called for the Jack
Montgomery winner to meet Sammy
Angott March 31 in a title scrap in
Madison Square Garden. Sammy,
untilsWednesday night, held the
NBA championship, but Mexican
Juan Zurita took it away from him
in a Hollywood 15-rounder.
But New York's boxing commission
said today it wanted the Angott-
Montgomery fight to go on. Pro-
moter Mike Jacobs said the same
thing. Charley Jones, Angott's pilot,
insisted. Frankie Thomas, handling
Montgomery's affairs, however, said
his boy wasn't feeling well.
No games are scheduled for to-
day in the I-M Basketball League,
but the Sports Building will be
open to teams wishing to hold prac-
tice. The schedule will be re-
sumed next Saturday, March 18.
Playoffs will be staged at a later
date, as yet unannounced.

LO down on Sports
Associate Sports Editor
TODAY is the day that Michigan's thinclads defend their Western Con-
ference indoor track crown, and letting our thoughts ramble just a bit
about the meet several interesting observations flash across our mind.
Michigan, under the guidance of Charlie Hoyt and now Ken Doherty, has
been making a habit of colecting Big Ten track crowns, but that isn't what
interests us at the moment. The human angle involving the individuals,
rather than the cold, hard facts about the team as a whole, invaded our
thoughts yesterday as we were trying to figure out how many points the
Wolverines were going to garner in downing their chief threat, Illinois.
Thinking it over, we decided to let Phil Diamond predict the score and
went on to deeper things.
Bob Ufeyr's sacrifice was the first thing that flashed through our,
befuddled brain. Bob was to defend his "Casey 600" title in the Knights
of Columbus games in Madison Square Garden tonight until it was
announced that the Conference meet would be the same night, and
that he would be eligible to compete for the fourth time. That was
several months ago when the news reached him, and after a little
deliberation Bob made up his mind.
Today he is in Chicago with his teammates, waiting to do his part
in bringing the indoor title to Ann Arbor for the second consecutive year,
while in New York rests the $400 trophy that goes to the winner of the 600,
and would automatically go to Ufer if he won. The Wolverines probably
wouldn't need Ufer, since they should win by a comfortable margin, but
that didn't stop Bob from wanting to be with his teammates instead of in
New York defending a highly prized crown which surely would have been his.
;AFTER a little, we thought about John Roxborough, the amiable,
long-striding half-miler who was inducted into the Army yesterday,
Fate, had it so desired, might just as well have stepped in and had him
inducted a couple of days later, but it didn't since there is a. much
greater conflict taking place than the Western Conference track cham-
pionships in Chicago.
