Wolverine Cindermen Sweep Meet
From Marquette, Western Michigan

Special to The Daily
MILWAUKEE - Michigan's
track team showed good strength
in field events as well as in overall
balance yesterday as it won a tri-
angular track meet from Mar-
quette and Western Michigan.
Michigan took only four first
places, but it picked up the bulk
of its 57 points with six seconds,
six thirds, and ten fourths. Mar-
quette scored 511/2 and Western
Michigan, 42%.
Brendan O'Reilly led the field
of high jumpers with an ascension
.of 6'4". Just behind him in this
event was Ron Kramer, who tied
Stan Menesse and Jack Gardner
of Michigan and Marquette re-
spectively, for second place.
Owen Wins
Captain Dave Owen again paced
the pack in the shot put by throw-
ing the 16-lb. iron ball 56'10".
Just behind him was Ron Kramer
for his second of three places in
the meet.
Another first went to Michigan's
Laird Sloan, who ran a very fine
:49.6 in the 440-yard event. -This
time was particularly good con-
sidering the detrimental effect of
the afternoon's high winds.
Relay Team Wins1
The final first place of the after-
noon for Michigan was achieved]
by the mile relay team of George
Giuppe, Dick Flodin, Don Mathe-

son, and Laird Sloan. This team
was hampered, as were all the
runners by the stiff wind. But even
in this breeze the team pounded
out a 3:20 victory over Marquette.
Western Michigan's Olympic
entry Ira Murchison just eked out
a close victory in the 100-yd. dash

John Magnuson. He came back in
the 220-yd. dash with another
close victory, this time over Dick
Helmar Dollwet turned in a very
fine double performance as he

raced to take a third place in both
the mile and two-mile events.
According to track coach Don
Canham, the shot and discus men
were terrific, and they won the
meet for Michigan. This includes
the two surprising second place
positions that Ron Kramer was
able to attain, in the discus and
the shot put events, along with a
second in the high jump.
The only weak spots that were
evident after yesterday's meet
were the broad jumpers and thej
880 group, who were able to take
only two fourths and one third
in these two events.
This meet represented the 23rd
straight dual or triangular meet'
win for the Michigan squad. This
achievement came in. the face of
strong winds and 44-degree wea-
ther, which hampered the men,.

Purdue, led by the great Joe
Campbell's amazing 145, routed
both Michigan and OSU, toppling
the Wolverines, 29%-6%, and the

The Ohio State linksters were
able to save face with a 20-16
victory over Michigan, leaving the
Wolverines in the cellar of the
triangular scoreboard.
Campbell, Low Man
Campbell was low man with his
145 for the 36 holes, carding a 73
on the front nine and bettering
that with a 72 coming back. The
next best scores were both shot by
teammates of the Purdue medal-
ist, a 151 by Bill Redding and a
154 by Pete Beardsley.
Ohio State's best score was shot
by Fritz Schmidt, who was the
medIalist last weekend at the
quadrangular meet in Columbus.
Schmidt's score yesterday was a
155, which tied for fourth best
with fPurdue's Tom Schafer.

p rt4 Comment

Everything but Track
NOW THAT spring has been here for awhile andperiods of warm
weather are appearing spasmodically now and then, sports fans
on the campus are no doubt turning their thoughts more intensively
to outdoor varsity activity. Picking up any available pocket schedule
ardent baseball followers will see that there are several home games
remaining, tennis fans have two more meets to see on the varsity
courts, and those who watch the golf team have at least one home
quadrangular meet to attend.
But what of track. Here is the bad news. All Michigan sports
enthusiasts who enjoy watching a track meet can rightfully feel
cheated this spring - there are no meets scheduled at home. Instead
the trackmen travel to such faraway spots as Milwaukee, Champaign,
Columbus, and Evanston, a bit out of the way for anyone without
rapid transit facilities.
In glancing back over previous seasons' schedules, the track
section has always been a bit skimpy in the spring, including usually
one or maybe two home dual meets, but the barrenness of 1957 is
an oddity. To get to the bottom of the problem Coach Don Canham,
the schedular, was sought out and asked why. His replies supplied
enough of the answers for an explanation, if not a solution, as to
what could be done.
In the first place, there are only six open spots on the scheduling
card for both indoor and outdoor dual meets. A Big Ten ruling states
that indoor track cannot begin until Feb. 1, and that outdoor track
can't start until April 1. With spring vacation taking away two
weekends, and semester change usually two more, the time available
is cut down even more. Add to this the weekends consumed by an-
nual track events like the Ohio Relays, Penn Relays, Michigan State
Relays, Michigan Relays, and the Indoor and Outdoor Conference
Meets, and there you are with
what's left - six dates, half of
which should be scheduled away
from home.
The way things worked out this
year, Michigan had three home
appearances during the indoor
season, two meets and the Michi-
gan Relays, and could get none
for the spring. Canham went on
to say that he has been running
into scheduling difficulties for the 3
past two or three years because
Michigan has been so perennially
strong. "We just haven't been able.
to get dates with good teams be-
cause they don't even want to face
us, much less come here. It seems
that the only way to get a decent
schedule is to have a lousy team." -Daily-David Arnold
This and another factor help to DON CANHAM
explain why Michigan goes out- «.. supplies an explanation
side the Conference in scheduling
meets. "We could schedule Conference teams for dual meets for the
whole .season," says Canham. "There are teams like Wisconsin or
Purdue who would meet us regularly, but we actually get tired of,
running against the Big Ten all the time. We face Conference run-
ners twice a year at the regular Meets, plus seeing most of them at
the relays.
Exhausting Sport.. .
ONE LAST question was put to Canham. Why not schedule more
than one meet a week much the same way the baseball and tennis
teams do? The answer -- track is an exhausting sport, more so than
either of the other two. When an athlete has to work so hard at
his sport, he can't perform to capacity more than once a week. Also
the strain on a sprinter's or hurdler's legs is tremendous during a
race. If they had to run competitively more than once a week, Can-
ham is sure he would have double the injuries he now has. This whole
thing is understandable if one makes a comparison with football.
This exhausting game is played but once a week also.
There is the situation. Against these cold facts there seems to be
no way to sneak in a few more home meets. The track fans will just
have to notice at the season's beginning when the meets will be.
Miss one and it may be the last.

spring football entered the final
Next Saturday the Wolverines
will hold their final scrimmage of
the spring in the Stadium.
Two of Michigan's outstanding
Sophomores, Fred Julian and
Charles Teuscher missed t h e
scrimmage because of injuries.
Trainer Jim Hunt said that Julian
would not see anymore action this
spring because of badly bruised

ribs. X-rays of Julian were nega-
Hunt explained that Teuscher's
X-rays show that he only has a
strained ankle and he should be
able to work-out tomorrow.
Mike Shatusky who is deter-
mined to show Bennie Oosterbaan
that he is the best man for the
right half slot scored the first
three touchdowns for the victors.
He raced off-tackle for one, seven,
and one yards respectively.
Jack Lousma made the score
24-0 when he also went off-tackle
four yards into paydirt.
Whites Buckle Down
The Whites then buckled down
and prevented two more Blue
TD's by tremendous goal - line

stopped the victors on the two-yd.
line. The next time the Blues had
the ball they were stopped one
yard from the end zone.
Fullback Eugene Sisinyak made
the score 30-0 on a nine yard run.1
Lousma then scored his second
TD on a five yard end run. The
Blues scored again when Shatusky
scored for the fourth time on a
five yard plunge.

The Whites prevented a white-
wash when Bill Bennett, an ex-
marine, one of Michigan's top
backs but ineligible because he is
a freshman, caught a 10-yd. pass
and then scampered 60 yards
through Blue tacklers for the tally,
Humorous Note
At this point the spectators
were treated to a humorous note
as a little black dog who everyone
called Bill rushed onto the field
to try out for the team. Bill left
the field wise to the fact that he
was not cut out for football when
he accidently got involved in a
tackle play and was nearly smoth-
ered by two tons of brawn. Mira-
culously Bill left the field without
any broken bones.
With the score 40-6 Sophomore
Al Groce, who is in contention for
the right halfback position raced
45 yards on a reverse around left
end into the end zone.
Stan Noskin, along with John
Spidel and Jim Van Pelt, quarter-
backed the Blues threw the only
touchdown pass when he hit Dave
Bowers with a 45-yard toss. On the
final play of the game Groce
scored the Blue's 10th TD on a 20-
yard run.
