(EDITOR'S NOTE: Th;s is the sec-
end in a series of stories spotlighting
the Western Conference Track and
Field Championships, scheduled for
Friday and Saturday, in Champaign;
nIinois.) *-
By BYRLE ABBIN
The greatest galaxy of distance
runners in the history of Big Ten
Track competition will provide the
feature attraction for the Con-
ference Indoor Championships to
be held at the University of Illi-
nois March 3 and 4.
Leading the mile pack will be
Wisconsin's heralded Don Gehr-
mann, who posted the best time in
collegiate circles this year in his
disputed loss to "red Wilt in the
Wannamaker Mile.
* * *
BUT MISSING from the scene
will be Michigan's great distance
star, Don McEwen.
According to Coach Don Can-
ham, McEwen, who only two
weeks ago set a varsity record
of 4:11.7 in the mile run of the
Illinois meet, will not be run-
ning this weekend in the con-
ference championship.
Nevertheless Gehrmann will
have plenty of trouble in defend-
ing his mile crown. Len Truex,
OSU sophomore sensation who de-
feated McEwen and set a new
Fieldhouse record of 4:10.7 last
Saturday, seems to be Gehrmann's
top competitor. Not far behind is
Walt Jewsberry of Illinois, whose

best time this year is 4:13.9, Law-
ton Lamb of the Illini with a
4:14.8 clocking. Frank Owen of
Indiana, Walt D'Arcy of OSU,
Shel Capp of Michigan, and Dean
Pieper of Northwestern all have
consistently run under 4:20 and
are not to be considered lightly.
GEHRMANN will undoubtedly
have to top his 4:16.1 mile of last
year to successfully defend his
crown. There is a great possibility
that ChuckFenske's western con-

runs will be held on Thursdays

quired for participation in
these events.
Rod Grambeaux.
ference indoor record of 4:11.1 will
topple as this top group of dis-
tance men vie for the coveted first
place.
Both Gehrmann's Wanna-
maker Mile time of 4:09.3 and
Truex's time in the OSU-Michi-
gan dual meet top this. twelve
year old record.
Truex seems to be the only
miler in the country that' can
match Gehrmann's blazing fin-
ishing kick, and this means much
in determining both the winner
and a possible new record time.
DARK HORSES of the race
seem to be D'Arcy and Peiper,
both of whom have shown great
FOR PARTICULAR MEN

potentialities in their few mile ef-
forts
D'Arcy has shown good form
in the two mile race this year,
but not too much is known about
Pieper, except that he has run
under 4:17 and has possibilities
of doing much better.
The two mile race will be an-
other crowd thriller, mainly on
the basis of Wolverine sophomore
sensation Don McEwen.
* * *
MCEWEN'S BEST TIME this
year is an excellent 9:06.9 mark
made in the Wisconsin dual meet.
This established him as the
outstanding two-miler in college
competition today, along with
the indomitable Ge hr mann
whose top performance is 0:08.
Both of these times top the in-
door western conference record of
9:10.7 set by Michigan's Ralph
Schwarzkopf in 1940.
* * *
IT IS DOUBTFUL if Gehrmann
will be entered in the race as he
will probably defend his mile and
1/2 mile titles. McEwen neverthe-
less has top competition in D'-
Arcy of OSU who ran a 9:21.8
race here last week.
Just behind are Dick Kilty of
Minnesota and Michigan's cap-
tain, Jus Williams, both of
whom have top performances
of 9:26.
Also grouped close in a bunch
are Walt Jewsberry of Illinois,
Wolverine Aaron Gordon, and Bob
Dellinger of Indiana, all having
been timed in the vicinity of 9:27.
Not too much is known this year
about Bob Rodibaugh of Purdue,
who placed fourth in last year's
indoor meet, but undoubtedly he
can't be counted out.

With the Michigan Tech hockey
team coming to Ann Arbor this
week-end, Michigan Coach Vic
Heyliger has more than a tough
Huskie sextet to worry about as
he prepares his Wolverines for a
two-game series with the Hough-
ton club.

By The Associated Press
LAKELAND, Fla.-Detroit Tiger
pitchers Hal Newhouser and Fred-
die Hutchinson became holdouts
yesterday.
The two mainstays of the De-
troit pitching staff were not in
uniform as 35 players went
through an initial 90-minute work-
out under perfect weather condi-
tions. The temperature was in the
middle 70's.
NEWHOJSER didn't appear. He
is seeking a reduction in the sal-
ary slash offered him. Hutchinson,
wanting a bigger raise, reported,
was told by manager Red Rolfb
that he could' not put on a uni-
form, and left.
Both pitchers will await the
arrival of General Manager Billy
Evans as the next step. Evans
is expected Friday..

Lennie Brumm and Graham
Cragg, are at present on the un-
certain list as to their playing
against Michigan Tech.c
* * *
GRANT and Brumm both were
injured in the second Minnesota
game at Minneapolis last Satur-
day, while Cragg is now in the
hospital with the flu.
If these three are not able to
play this week-end, Heyliger will
be forced to juggle his line-ups
again as he did against the
Gophers when Grant was forced
to leave the game with a knee
injury.

Gil Burford's three goals and one
assist in the Minnesota series

By HUGH QUINN
"But I never can be as scared
as I was when I was 16 years old."
This is, what Wolverine swim-
mer Dave Neisch tells himself be-
fore the start of any big race.
* * *
AND THIS is also the psychol-
ogy that has been largely respon-
sible, for his becoming what as-
sistant coach Bill Kogen calls
"the squad's most improved swim-
mer."
For Neisch, who has turned
out to be one of Michigan's best
men in the 100-yard free style,
remembers when he was swim-
* * *

big meet. Lined up with swimmers
from Ohio State, Michigan State
and Great Lakes Training Base,
the high school junior was para-
lyzed with fright.
* * *
NEISCH swam his leg nearly
ten seconds slower than he had
been swimming in practice, but
the Chikopi team, with Tom
Coates, Mat Mann II, and Jerry
Gordon placed second behind the
Great Lakes sailors.
But since the summer when
he first started' working under
Coach Matt Mann, Neisch has
settled down to serious swim-
ming, and he has convinced
himself that he couldn't possibly
be as frigid with fright as. he
was then.
Tie following winter, swimming
for the University High team,
Neisch won the State 100-yard
free style crown, and anchored
the championship free style relay
quartet. Already the improvement
was beginning to show.

THIS SEASON, Neisch has
knocked nearly two and one-half
seconds off his previous fastest
time for the 100. In the Iowa
meet two weeks ago, Neisch was
one of the workhorses for the
Wolverine squad, swimming three
centuries. Dave swam the free
style leg on the medley relay
team that equalled the Big Ten
record of 2:51.8.
Neisch lays a good bit of his
improvement to Dick Weinberg,
former Michigan sprint star. He.
says that since he met Weinberg,
at Camp Chikopi, he has gained
a lot from Weinberg's advice.
Following some of this advice,
Neisch has been able to steady his
stroke, which used to be jerky and
wasteful.
IN FACT, Neisch's stroke was so
unsteady that ex-Wolverine
breaststroker Bob Sohl once said,
"I can watch Neisch swim and
see a whole swimming meet-he
swims 40 different strokes at
once."
