This game against Chicago will be
an excellent opportunity for Michi-

King to bolster his individual scoring

Iowa. Ines, however, has played three
games less than King. It was Ives,
brilliant record-smashing perform-
ance against Chicago last week-end
that elevated him to his present po-

fifth straight Victory when they meet
the Northwestern Wildcats Saturday
night at 7 :30 at the Shorts Building
The Wolverines defeated the Pur-
ple squad yin theil last dual meet, 46-

from behind to deat the Wildcats in
Evanston, thus making Northwestern

close to beating the Wolverines so
Northwestern IsTough Opponent
In the first meet, the Wildcats
scored heavily by capturing many of
the second and third places in the
events won, by Michigan. Merton
Church, won the 50-yard free style
for Michigan but was closejy followed
by Nill Gamble of Northwestern. The
Wolverines' crack relay team com-
posed of Mert Church, Chuck Fries,
Ace Cory and Achilles Pulakus, will

Although the Michigan track squad
is favored to take Western Michigan
with ease Saturday night, the meet
promises plenty of interesting angles
from all standpoints.
The sprints are shaping up to look
like one of the outstanding parts of
the meet. Both Bob Nussbaumer,
fleet back from last year's football
team, and Bruce Blanchard, this sea-
son's baseball captain, have been
running neck and neck in practice
time trials, neither beating the other
twice in a row. This will be the first.
time they will run against each other
in actual competition. Although both
these Wolverines are good sprinters,
they may both have to leave the
tape-breaking to Western Michigan,
who brings its comet Dick Radcliffe
here with an impressive record so
far this season. He turned in a
sparkling :6.4 in the 60-yard dash
against Notre Dame.
John Roxborough, the long strid-
ing half-miler, who is, as Coach Doh-
erty puts it, "in the best condition of
his life," is expected to turn in some
fine running come this Saturday
night. If the competition pushes
him, he should be expected to turn in
one of his' finest races.
Michigan's Carl Nichols, a former
letterman from the University of
Missouri, is the man to watch in the
broadjump, according to his pre-
meet form. Nichols, who two years
ago jumped 23'4"- outdoors, has been
reaching 22 ft. 6 in. in practice, and
is being counted on to really hit the
board for the Maize and Blue. He is
expected to -be in even better form
later on in the season, because of the
fact that broadjumping requires slow
conditioning. This means that he
may equal his leaps of two and three
PEM Boys in 2-Mile
The 2-mile run will be somewhat
of an innovation, inasmuch as all the
men running for Michigan have been
drawn frot the Physical Education
classes. Only one man has had any
previous varsity experience, Bob
Thompson, who donned the spikes
for Michigan State last year.
The half mile and the mile runs
are practically put in the Michigan
win column already, with the °Hume
twins, Roxborough and Dick Barnard
toeing the mark.
