Track and Field... and Canham
THIS TIME I had to believe Don Canham. The Michigan track
coach, usually as optimistic as a Democrat in Vermont, had good
cause to worry about tomorrow's dual meet with Indiana at Ferry
M'eld.
The Hoosiers have enough strength -this season to give any team
trouble in a dual meet-and the Wolverines are far from their top
physical strength .. .
. So I wasn't too surprised when Canham delivered his trade-
marked misery narration to me the other day in his office. "We're in
for trouble," he admitted, "because you can't have too many of your
good men on the sidelines and still expect to win."
The Wolverines have not lost a
dual meet in over three years, and
it will take some top performances
by the home squad to keep the
string intact. Michigan's habitual
dominance over its competition in
dual meets in recent years has kept
n f many fans away from Ferry Field.
Who wants to see a track team go
through little more than a work-
out? This is no excuse for missing
tomorrow's meet.

And Pete Gray, still feeling the effects of his battle with the mumps,
isn't breaking records these days. This, added to the recent mediocre
showing of the team (last Saturday), gives Canham good reason to
forgoe optimism.

Michigan's baseball team must
toe the line this weekend.
.Weather permitting, the Wol-
verines will host Illinois this aft-
ernoon at 3:30 for a single game,
and meet Purdue tomorrow at 1:30
p.m. for a doubleheader at Ferry

These three games are vital to
Michigan's hopes of a Conference
championship. At present the Wol-
verines share fifth place with
Michigan State. Three victories
would place them in the midst of
. the title race.

All-Campus Champs

By BOB McELWAIN
Michigan's tennis team, hoping
to extend its winning streak, plays
host to Illinois today at 2:15 p.m.
on the Varsity Courts.
Tomorrow the Wolverines travel
to Columbus, where they will meet
Ohio State in another Big Ten
match,
These and all other Big Ten
matches are looked upon as simply
concentrated practice sessions for
Western Conference teams, as they
are pointing to the Big Ten Cham-
pionships to be held at Minneapolis
on May 24-26.
Friendly Warning
Illinois was reputed to have only
a 'fair' team at the season's start,
but Coach Dale Lewis of Indiana
recently warned Michigan's coach,
Bill Murphy, that "Illinois has a
surprisingly good squad this year."
Despite this optimistic note, the
Illini are not expected to pose
much of a threat to the defending
champion Wolverines. Only two
lettermen return to bolster Illinois,
which finished third in the Big
Ten Championships last year.
I

Senior Harry Brandt, slated to
play in the number two singles
spot, is the only two-letter winner
on this year's squad. Playing num-
ber six singles last year, he com-
piled an 8-4 record in dual meets.
As a sophomore last year, Jim
Van Tine had a 12-2 mark as the
fourth singles man. He has been
moved up to third this year. Big
man on the squad is newcomer
Carl Noble, a highly rated sopho-
more who has jumped to the num-
ber one singles position.
Ohio State finished ninth in
the Big Ten tourney last year, and
this year's squad has given no indi-
cation that the Buckeyes' immedi-
ate tennis future is much better.
In facing another dismal season,
Ohio State Coach Hermann Wirth-
wein has few lettermen to rely on..
One of the few, Fritz Haring, has
been put in the number one singles
slot, with only mediocre success.

Yesterday in the finals of the
all-campus paddleball doubles
tournament, Warren Werthei-
mer and Dave Kaufman de-
feated Jim Arnold and Al Lif-
shay, 12-21, 21-20, 21-10. In
the squash singles finals Paul
Marden beat Dick Ahlbleck, 17-

Don Canham, Quizmaster .*..
ENOUGH ABOUT tomorrow's meet. Being somewhat of a track fan,
I used this opportunity to ask5 the Michigan coach a few questions
about track itself. My first query had an immediate effect on him-
you'd think I had pulled the trigger on a starter's gun:
"How come there is such little personal glory for individuals in
track, compared to other amateur sports, such as football."
"You are absolutely . . .'wrong!" he countered. He then went
on to. tell me that my conception is a popular but erroneous one. I
breathed a sigh of relief-at least I'm not alone in my ignorance. "But,"
I responded, fighting back like a champion, "prove it to me."
"Okay," he grinned, "here goes."
"Who is Wes Santee?"
'That's easy," says me, "he's the miler, formerly of Kansas."
"Right," he replied, "but who was last year's all-America end,
beside& Ron Kramer?"
It took me about five seconds to think of Ron Beagle.

'ITH THIS last remark he bounded up from his desk and nearly
high jumped to a big table in another part of his office. He showed
me the scrap book he keeps-clippings from all parts of the country-
all about a certain track team called Michigan.
I was frankly amazed to see how the West Coast papers "played"
track, especially Michigan track. Los Angeles sheets bannered stories
about the mile relay team . . as did San Francisco's dailies . . . and I
could see that Michigan's track team, (Wer the past few years, is a
headliner almost everywhere but. . Ann Arbor.
"Getting back to this glory business," he went on, "what can be
more glorifying than visiting the world, and that's exactly what track
stars, and sometimes whole teams do."
He cited examples of the many Michigan athletes who have been
invited to Europe, where track is the major sport.
He stopped his oration long enough to ask: "Are you convinced?"
I nodded glumly.
Donald Canham had made his point.
