Moore, Swanson, Leonard, Head List of Stars
In Competition at East Lansing Saturday

Michigan's 34 entrants in the 24th
Annual Michigan State Relays heads
a list of more than 200 so far sent in
for the annual event, which will be
held Saturday at East Lansing.
Fourteen schools have announced
that they have made entries in the
Relays, which haye returned to their
pre-war importance as one of the
outstanding track meets in the Mid-
west each year.
34 Wolverines To Run
The 34 men to run for the Maize
and Blue will compete against the
33 thinclads entered by Notre, Dame.
Ohio State and Michigan State will
also be represented by full squads.
Northwestern is expected to send a
strong squad of 15 men that will be
headed by pole vaulter Bill Moore,
who has cleared 14 feet this season.
Other schools have sent the names
of from 10-20 men who will compete
in the Relays. Outstanding individ-
uals from such schools as Loyala,
University of Detroit, Wayne and
other colleges in this part of the
country will compete.
Thomason Faces Leonard
Probably the best event of the meet
will be the one-mile run, which will
see Michigan's sophomore Bob Thom-

ason competing against the much
heralded Bill Leonard, from the No-
tre Dame squad.
Thomason ran a 4:26 mile last
Saturday- in the Yost Field House
against very mediocre opposition.
Leonard finished 40 yards behind Les-
lie MacMitchell in the Wannamaker
Mile at the Millrose Games last Sat-
urday in Madison Square Garden. As
MacMitchell's time was 4:19 that
puts Leonard's time at around 4:25
or 4:26.
It will be the first time the Wolver-
ine distance star has faced any op-
position of his calibur, and the race
will probably be a test of Thomason's
ability under pressure.
Another outstanding event will see
Michigan's Bob Swain trying to turn
the tables on Ohio State's brilliant
freshman, Carl Baynard, who last
week nipped the Maize and Blue
sprinter by a scant foot.
Swanson To Run Low Hurdles
Elmer Swanson will be out for the
honors in the high and low hurdle
events, which will 'see some of the
best talent in the country competing.
Archie Parsons, in the quarter-mile,
will also have to face the Buckeye's
Raynard, while Chuck Birdsall will

meet the outstanding distance men in
the meet in the two-mile grind.
Chuck Fonville and George Ostroot
will probably find things much more
to their liking with Purdue's Bill Ban-
gert remaining competing at home in#
a dual meet against Wiscoiisin.
All of these individual events will
be held in addition to the regular re-
lays that have been a part of the
meet for almost a quarter of a cen-
tury.
Freshm-ian Sets
D'istance Mark

Michigan's track coach, Ken Doh-
erty, announced yesterday that an-
other Michigan freshman mark had
fallen when Herb Barten ran the
three quarters of a mile in 3:11.7 in
practice Tuesday.
The 17-year old freshman who was
Chicago's Interscholastic Cross Coun-
try and Mile Champion last year,
clipped :01.5 off the mark set by Bob
Thomason last year.
Thomason, who held the record
just one year, 'had taken it away
from the Hume twins, who set their
mark in 1942. Barten's feat speaks
well of Michigan's future strength
in the distance events if he should
continue the improvement shown so
far this year.

ENCORE, IF YOU PLEASE:
Doherty Endorses Annual Michigan elays

By ALYS GEORGE
Last year, when the first running
of the Michigan Relays on the cinder
paths of Yost Field House drew 200
athletes from seven midwest schools
to Ann Arbor, it was hoped that such
a relay carnival might become an
annual event on the Wolverine track
schedule.
There are no Michigan Relays
slated, for this indoor season, despite
the success of last year's meet, which
saw the Wolverines dominate their
opposition by taking six events. Ken
Weisner of Marquette highlighted
the evening by breaking the Field
House jump mark by 1/18 in. with a
leap of 6 ft. 3/8 in.
Substitute For Spartan Relays
The relay carnival run off here
last year, Coach Ken Doherty ex-
plained, was really a substitute for
the annual Michigan State Relays
which the Spartans were unable to
put on. Saturday, however, Michigan
State College is once more holding
its relays in East Lansing and the
Wolverine thinclads will be there
competing for honors with other
midwest schools.
Doherty is in favor of having an
annual Michigan Relays, but he
raises the question of which schools
would compete in such a meet. The
major track teams in the midwest
which could send sizeable squads to
Ann Arbor are Ohio State, Purdue,
Illinois, Notre Dame and Michigan
State. Several other colleges might
enter a few men as Case and Mar-
quette did in last year's meet, but
the success of the relays would de-
pend on those five chools sending
large teams.
Wolverines.Face Major Squads
As the Michigan track schedule
stands this year, Doherty added, the
thinclads are competing with the
major track teams in the midwest
in dual, triangular and quadrangular
meets before the Western Conference
meet in Chicago. Michigan track fans
will have an opportunity to see Pur-
due, Ohio State, Illinois, Marquette,
Notre Dame and Michigan State com-7

_ _ r

pete in Yost Field House in three
home contests.
Doherty pointed out that the
question of having annual Michigan
Relays comes down to a choice be-
tween holding one large relay carni-
val or having two or three dual and
triangular meets. The few teams
available for track competition inj

this vicinity would not want to travel
to Ann Arbor twice during the indoor
season.
There is a question, observed Doh-
erty, of whether schools will keep
to the smaller dual and triangular
meets or whether the larger relay
carnival will prevail as the domi-
nant form of track competition.
