Cindermen Continue Time Trials;
Track Coach at Big Ten Meeting

OFF THE KEYBOARD
By MARY LU HEATH
Associate Sports Editor

In the absence of their coach the
Michigan thin-clads held their sec-
ond time trials of the winter season
this weekend, making a slight im-
provement over the performances'
given in last week's event.
The team members seemed to dis-
regard this week's trials, preferring
to look forward to next Friday's all
important Intra-Squad meet, from
which the personnel of the team will
be chosen.
Finishing all events in times cred-

itable for this early in the season
were numerous Sophomores who
promise to give the 13 lettermen a
battle for positions on the 1946
squad.
Coach Ken Doherty has been in
Chicago for the Big Ten meetiig this
weekend as one of the representatives
of the Michigan delegation.

ROBERT GRAHAM, Manager
State Street at North University-

ONE OF THE most absorbing and rewarding pastimes of anyone interested
in Michigan athletics is a perusal of the old Wolverine record books.
That Michigan stands high in all phases of activity in the national inter-
collegiate sports world is an accented fact. That records of past international
Olympic Games also show Michigan men rating ton honors, from the opening
of the century-to 1936, however, is not so well known.
Michigan entries from 1900 to 1924 were scattered, with no more than
two men successfully representing the Wolverines on American teams in
any one of the quadrennial meets. The 1928, 1932, and 1936 Olympics,
however, were the scenes of increasing Michigan triumphs.
The first Michigan man to win an Olympic event was Charles Dvorak,
who turned the trick in the pole vault for the United States in 1900 at Paris.
The following meet found Dvorak repeating in the vault, while teammate
Archie Hahn brought home triple honors with firsts in the 60. 100, and
200 meter races in 1904. This meet was held in St. Louis.
Hahn repeated in the 100 meter event in a special Olympic carnival
in 1906. The next regular meet, at London, saw Ralph Rose take highest
shot put honors. In 1912. Stockholm was the site of the classic. Once
again, two Michigan men turned in notable performances, with Ralph
Craig taking both the 100 and 200 meters, and Carroll B. haff qualify-
ing for the finals in the 400 meter race.
Dominance in the sprints was always the Michigan forte, but when the
meet moved back to Paris in 1924, the field events held the Wolverine
spotlight. DeHart Hubbard won in the broad jump, while James Brooker
sky-scraped to a second place in the pole vault.
The 1928 Games at Amsterdam found other Michigan teams beside
the track squad sending successful entrants to Holland. Edward George,
a heavyweight wrestler, won in his division, while Robert Hewitt took
second in the 123-pound mat class.
The winning swimming relay team included Paul Samson, a Wolverine,
as one cog. The Canadian Olympic team boasted the services of two
Wolverine thinclads, George Hester, a sprinter, and Garnet Ault, a middle
distance runner.
EDDIE TOLAN was the big gun for Michigan and the United States team
in the 1932 meet at Los Angeles. Tolan won both the 100 and 200 meter
races, setting new records in both events. He covered the distance in the
100 in 10.3.
Edwin Turner took fifth in the 800 meter race in the same meet,
while the swimmers also turned in praiseworthy performances. James
Cristy took third in the 1,500 meter swimming race, with Richard
Degener capturing the "show" spot in his fancy diving division.
The 1936 Olympics, the last before the wartime discontinuation, saw
five Michigan competitors win laurels for the second time. Wolverine Sam
Stoller was a member of the American team competing in the 100 meter race.
The Michigan swimming contingent really went to town. Degener
repeated as a third place winner in the fancy diving; Cristy won his
heat in the 1,500 meter; Jack Kasley competed in the semi-finals of
the breast-stroke; and Taylor Drysdale took third in the backstroke
finals.
Where the revived 1948 classic will be held is still a matter for speculation.
If Michigan continues to keep up its accelerated pace in capturing the
top places, however, we will not be at all surprised. Michigan athletes
usually do not fail to finish a job well-begun.

Freely in Second Half
(Continued from Page 1)
maintained their steady point-mak-
ing pace.
Harrison and Glen Selbo led the
Michigan attack with 15 points each,
followed by Dave Strack with 13.
Harrison rang up all his total in the
first half. He was ejected from the
game early in the second period for
rough tactics.
Former Bronco Stars
Selho, playing against his former
teammates, took up where Harrison
left off in the final stanza, account-
ing for 11 of his points over the sec-
ond 20-minute route. Thus, Harri-
son, a freshman, and Selbo, a two-
year veteran Navy transfer from
Western, continued to run one-two in
the season's scoring column.
For the Broncos, Fitch was the big
gun with 13 points, closely followed
'sy Capt. Mel Van Dis, only non-
freshman of the starting five, with
11.
The game was rather rough most
of the way, especially at the start of
;he second half when several near-
fights broke out.
