Wolverines To Finish Cage Season
Against Northwestern Saturday

The Wolverine track team reaches
the second hurdle in their race for
the conference championship when
they engage in a dual meet with'
Notre Dame at 8:00 p.m. Saturday
night in the Yost Field House.
The Irish thinclads, who had a
much harder time beating Western
Michigan than did Michigan, are not
being looked upon as "just another
team".however, and Coach Doherty's
charges are working out with deter-
mination this week. The team from
South Bend is bringing a fairly well
balanced squad to Ann Arbor, and
has more strength in the middle and
long distances than the Wolverines
have faced so far this season. The
fact that Notre Dame's Coach "Doc"
Handy was without the services of
several of his best performers against
the Broncos must be taken into
account when looking at the close
score between the two schools.
Pohland Is Chief Irish Threat
Ralph Pohland, a veteran Big Ten
half-miler who ran for Minnesota
last year and placed second in the
conference, will offer plenty of com-
petition for John Roxborough and
the Hume twins in the 880-yard run.
He is a Marine trainee at Notre
Donne and helps to form the nucleus
of the Irish team. Frank Martin, a
letterman from last year, is another
distance runner who is expected to,
turn in some good time Saturday
night. He showed a lot of endurance
in the Western Michigan meet, when
he ran in the half mile, mile and two
mile runs, wiinning the latter two
and placing in the first. He ran all
races in comparatively fast time con-
sidering the strength and endurance
needed to turn in such a feat.
George Sullivan, a seventeen-year-
old lad who was a standout on last
season's football team, and John
Yanaker, an All-American end from
Notre Dame's mighty 1943 football
machine, are both highly - touted
shotputters and will seek to make it
tough for Bob Gardner, George Krae-
ger and Phil Collia, who will be
tossing the weights for the Maize
and Blue.
Michigan Favored in Sprints
Little is known about the exact
power possessed by the Notre Dame
sprinters. Bob Clifford, who per-
formed well last year, has not been
turning in his usual low times yet
this season, but may be at his peak
for this meet. According to previous
times, Bruce Blanchard and Bob
Nussbaumer will be favored to cop
the, honors in the shorter distances.
Roland Hogue, a V-12 trainee, has
been jumping around the six foot
mark, and reached six feet one inch
against the Broncos. This means

The Maize and Blue swimmers are
exceptionally powerful in that they
possess both undefeated relay and

Conference 50-yard champion, Chuck
Fries, Achilles Pulakus and Ace Cory
