CA LIFORNIA CAPERS!:
Tliinclads Beat Golden Bears
In I tomorouts Track Revival
By GEORGI'. VETTEII
Track seasons have ended in
various ways, but topping off the
indoor. yar with an outdoor meet
takes some sort of prize.
Exactly one week ago, under a
very real and hot sun, the thin-
clads did just that. Competing
right up through the Chicago Re-
lays, the usual layoff was forgone
to train indoors for this Califor-
nia duel. Coach Doherty never
gave more than a wistful glance
at the six foot snow drifts on the
Ferry Field cinders. All outdoor
practice came on the UCLA track
in Beverly Hills or at Hollywood
High School. None of the boys
complained of the surroundings.
Winning the meet was an ac-
complishment. The train-born
stiffness was shaken off, the el-
ements were accepted. There
was a balmy breeze nonchalant-
ly whistling down the hills into
the stadium. And the smiling,
sun bowled over all but the na-
tives. The hardy Northmen from
Ann Arbor watershed were even
dazed by the glare. When this
sunny torpor is added to the
usual lire-race apprehensions,
a jim-dandy combination re-
suits that gives you that "want
to ssleep' feeling.
In fact in the 880, Chuck Low
was first seen to open both eyes
as he whizzed into the lead to
win on the home str~etch. This
may account for the reason that
all newspaper dispatches had Bar-
ten as the winner.
The wind posed a problem. A-
long the run-way, Gene Moody
strung an assorted series of stakes'
looking like the Toonerviile Trol-
ley track. These were his wind
gages, at the end he had a shoe
string flapping around as a wind
sock. With his steps all figured
out for whatever wind blew, he
faced the world with a smug
smirk. Things went hunky dorey
until the wind changed in the
middle of one of his jumps. He
took off all right, but was seen
to spin three times in mid-air,
and to land on his pate on a
The 100 yard dash furnished
its share of whimsy. Down in
the holes, the starter called the
sprinter to their marks, shot
the gun, and got them set. Some
few claim they were got set be-
fore the gun went off, but this
is entirely unsubstantiated. At
any rate, it was the fastest
start since last Sadie Hawkins
day. I trust the starter's wife
wasn't too disappointed not to
find his wallet that night as he
was rolled on the track. Val
Johnson's race is all the more
terrific considering he was 10
yards behind when the race
But withal, the team came
crashing through in a fine upset'
victory. All the dopesters had 'M'
at least 10 points down. Conster-

Bears better. They weren't chip-

As for the trip itself, "ye mighty
men of Michigan" were so wrap-
ped up in thoughts of the coming
Saturday, they were hardly a-
wake. However, as one wag put
it when asked about his time: "in
the words of the Anglicized Pata-
gonian, 'pip-pip'!" No complaints
from a soul. Idyllic harmony
reigned amongst the mighty men.
And from all the rousing discus-
sions held on the way, the most
intelligent concerned the "perdi-
tion of bridge playing."

Horseshoes, golf, and tennis will
