M i c h i g a n's track fortunes
against Ohio State tomorrow af-
ternoon received a jolt when
Coach Don Canham disclosed yes-
terday that injuries have scratch-
ed Art Henrie and Jim Mitchell
from competing in the only home
cinder clash of the season.
In what is shaping up to be a
very close meet, the loss of Henrie
in the dashes and Mitchell in the
hurdles will keep the pressure on
the Wolverines in, every event of
the crucial test with the Western
Conference Indoor Champions.
GENE COLE, ace dash man for
Buckeyes, is now slated to have
things his own way in the 100 and
220 yard dashes with Henrie now
out of the running.
Although Don Hoover and
Waly Atchison will be in top-
notch shape for the hurdle
events, the striking of Mitchell
will still cost the Wolverines
points in the high sticks.
Aaron Gordon has sufficiently
recovered from his previous in-
jury to be paired with Len Truex,
the sensational sophomore miler
of the Bucks. Charlie Whitaker
and George Jacobi wil also vie
with the vaunted Truex in the 880
* * *
RATHER THAN run Don Mc-
Ewen in both the mile and two
mile, Coach Canham stated that
the flashy Wolverine star will be
used only in the two mile classic.
McEwen will find tough com-
petition in Frank D'Arcy who
ran behind him in the Big Ten
indoor finals last March.
But slated for double duty is
Charlie Fonville. Besides heading
the shot put event, Fonville will
also be entered in the discus throw.
Buckeye Bill Miller, who has
thrown the disc 168 feet during
his career, will provide the key
competition for Fonville who was
throwing 162 feet prior to his
back injury in 1948.
Both Henrie and Mitchell are
suffering from hamstring leg
muscle injuries. Henrie's condition
is least serious as he may be able
to run in Illinois-Northwestern-
Michigan triangular meet at
Champaign next week.
