universities and 17 colleges
throughout the nation.

however, is expected to-exceed last

Bangart. Fonville's best toss to
date has been 53 feet 3/ inches.

New Invention
A touch of novelty will be pro-
vided by Dave Rankin, Purdue
track coach, who has constructed
Something brand new in the way
of field event equipment for in-
door meets which will make its
debut at the annual show.
Rankin's innovations consist of
specially designed hallow frosted
lucite plastic standards which will
be lighted internally with red neon
tubes for both the high jump and
the pole vault. An internally light
plastic toe board will decorate the
shot put area.
The addition of this new -gadget
combined with the outstanding
field of performcers should cer-
tainly provide one of the most
"colorful" meets of the indoor
In the college division, Miami
of Ohio, defending champion, will
be the heavy favorite, leading the
list of entries with 40.
In this division Baldin-Wallace's
Harrison Dilliard will be shooting
at the world's low hurdle mark,
which he equaled at Chicago last
week. °
Illinois' Herb McKenley will at-
tempt to repeat his record break-
ing performance Saturday night in
the Windy City in his specialty,
the quarter mile.

Williams House snagged threeI
firsts, two second plaes, and a
pair of thirds to run away with
the top spot in the dormitory track
and field events with a total of
23 points, followed by Lloyd
House's with 191,2 points and a
tie between Greene and Allen-
Rumsey for third.
In the 60-yard dash Williams
ran one-two as Pierre Miller
kicked in ahead of John Wither-
spoon in 6.6 seconds. Basketballer
Boyd McCaslin's efforts in the

first, his winning time being

5:11.3. Duane Chubb's pole vault
mark of 9 ft. 9 inches topped the
field for Williams' other win.
Lloyd House was the only other
dorm boasting a double victory.
Hal White spiked the 440din the
wpinning time of 57.2 and Dave
Buncy traveled 880 yards in 2:14.
In the low hurdles Clay Holland of
Victor Vaughan was clocked in
8.7 as he broke the tape first.

Boxing moved squarely into the
sports limelight today with the
announcement of the pairings for
the All Campus Boxing Tourna-
ment which is to be held tonight
at 8:00 p.m. in the Main Gymna-
sium of the Intramural Building.
Bleachers are being erected on
,hree sides of the ring for the esti-
mated crowd of over 1,000 stu-
lents that is expected to attend
'he fights, the first of their kind
in the University's history.
Koblenz at 135
Squaring off at 135 pounds are
Morrie Koblenz and Milt Higgs
with the winner meeting Bob Mar-
shall, who drew a bye, in the finals
March 26. In the 145-pound class
there are two bouts, John Pheri-
ault against Bob Harrison and
Johnny Keeler versus Charles
Two more events feature the
155-pounders; Andy Kerr meets
Don Ayars while Bill Muha op-
poses Jack Hallberg. At 165 Ed
Burns fights Allan Sandman with
the winner squaring off with
Jerry Wingart, who drew a bye, in
the finals.
Heavyweights Main Attraction
Moving up to the lightheavies,
Linus Litsey scraps with Herb
Furman while Carl Roth is
matched against Mark Abend. The
heavyweight division finds Allan
Jackson battling Dick Kempthorn
followed by the George Athan-
Ralph Kohl bout in the evening's
windup event.
As there were only two entrants
in the 127-pound class, that par-
ticular bout is being held over
until the night of the Intramural

Building Open House. The heavy-
weights in particular promise
some real fireworks as Kemp-
thorn, Athans and Kohl are all
members of the football team.
Winner Qualifies
Each winner tonight qualifies
for the championship bouts which
will be held on the 26th in con-
junction with the Open House. As
the plans stand now the titlist in
each weight division will receive
a gold medal emblematic of his
championship triumph.
Besides the medal however, the
champs, plus any of the other
fighters that show up well to-
night, are almost sure bets to make
the boxing team for next year, if
and when a squad is allowed by
the University.
The judges for the tournament
are Ed Cochran and Hank Lasch
with Chuck Orwick doing the
refereeing. The judges have de-
cided to follow The Intercollegiate
Boxing Point System for the
fights tonight. Under this system
the winner of each round receives
ten points with his opponent get-
ting a proportionate amount de-
pending on how evenly contested
the round has been. Thus, a fight-
er may lose two rounds by close
totals and still take the decision
by decisively winning the other
The boxers themselves are to go
through a physical examination
and weighing-in this afternoon
after 1:00 p.m. and to make sure
they are in perfect shape for their
evening's three-round fight.
There will be no admission
charge for the student body or
general public.

With spring in the air and with
gardening on the mind of the Av-
erage American, the Michigan
baseball fan thinks of the outer
garden of the Wolverine 1947 ball
team and of prospects for the com-
ing season.
Of the numerous fly chasers that1
reported to Coach Ray Fisher
earlier this month, the sage men-
tor has narrowed the field down
to six or seven candidates who will
see most of the action in this
spring's Maize and Blue outfield.
White, Wiese Back
Two Michigan lettermen, Paul
White and Bob Wiese, and Bump
Elliott, who earned letters playing
baseball for the Purdue Boiler-
makers before transfering to the
Wolverine , camp, are the top
three prospects. White and

Fritz Crisler has returned to
the West Coast-but don't wor-
ry, it's not to negotiate for a
new coaching position.
He's in Los Angeles to ad-
dress members of the Univer-
sity of Michigan Alumni Club
Friday night.

Wiese, who have played in Coach
Fisher's outfield before the war,
are port swingers, while Elliott
takes his cuts from the right side
of the plate. All three were regu-
lars on the football team last fall.
Freshman Ralph Morrison is
slated to see plenty of action in
Michigan's outer garden this
spring, and he also is a left-hand-
ed slugger. Rounding out the list
of the top six possibilities are
Duane McKeachie and Paul Veith.
