Six'M' Thinclads Enter Chicago Relays

* * *

A small contingent of six track
j men will carry the Maize and Blue
colors tonight in the star-studded
field of the annual Chicago Daily
News Relays.
Captain Don Hoover will lead
the Wolverine squad, in compet-
ing in a topnotch hurdle duel with
Harrison Dillard and Jesse Thom-
as. In the Knights of Columbus
meet last Friday Hoover finished
third to these two, but came back
the following night to top Thomas
in the Milwaukee Journal meet.
The other individual Michigan
performer will be Jack Carroll,
highly rated freshman, who last
week showed tremendous strength
in bringing the Wolverines their
only victory in the KC Meet.
CARROLL WON the 600 yard
dash over a top group led by Gene
Cole of OSU, and Henry Crier of
Illinois, who was touted as top
college half miler in the country
until his recent ineligibility.
The two mile relay team will
compose the rest of the Wolver-
ine entrants. The foursome of
Don McEwen, Aaron Gordon,
Chuck Whiteaker, and Al Ran-
kin will be seeking revenge over
MSC's quartet which bested the
Maize and Blue runners by

TOP AMATEUR runners will
feature the rest of the meet. The
Bankers Mile, always a top attrac-
tion, will again spotlight ' the
rivalry between Fred Wilt and
Don Gerhmann. Gerhmann, aft-
er winning 39 straight mile races,
is presently in a slump, having
finished second three times ina
Added to these two is Len
Truex, Big Ten Mile Champ,
who inflicted Gerhmann's sec-
ond loss last week.
Curtis Stone, who has twice
won the Merriman two mile race,
leads the two mile field. Last
year in this invitational race, Mc-
Ewen set the varsity indoor record
of 9:05.5 in finishing third to
Stone and John Twomey.
However this year McEwen is
staying out of the race, giving his
full effort to running for the two
mile relay quartet.
Another fifteen foot pole vault-
ing effort is in prospect with Don
Laz of Illinois, and former Illini
Bob Richards hooking up in a
top dual. Last week Laz topped
the coveted mark for the first
time with a 15'%" effort in the
KC meet, while Richards has con-
sistently bettered it since his first
fifteen foot vault.

MICHIGAN will throw its strong

Johnny McKennell, and Earl
Keyes against the Bruins star goa-
lie Don Whiston, who has receiv-
ed rave notices about his goal-
tending abilities. Newspaper ex-
perts are agreed that Whiston has
been the best net minder in the
tourney thus far.
To go along with the fine de-
fense the Bruins possess a
strong offense headed by Don
Sennot who has scored 62 points
in 20 games. Other scoring lead-
ers for the easterners are Don
Wheeler, Tony Malo, and Al

goals by Frank DiBiase andl
John Casey. Bud Eastwood tied
the count at three all at 7:11.
After this point it was all Brown
as the Bruins chalked up four con-
secutive goals to be in front at
the end of the second frame 7-3.

OBSERVERS who have wit-
nessed the Bruins tussles this sea-
son declare they are not a second
period club. However, the Ivy
leaguers disproved that theory
with a six goal second period ef-
Colorado scored once more at
.34 seconds of the third period

the evening's scoring with a goal
at 15:28.
