The Far West was audibly heard'

jolts by her triumphs in football andk
track. The Bruins downed Ohio State,'
Big Ten gridiron champions, in a
post season game at Pasadena by the
score of 28 to 0. Following this
triumph the team from the coast de-
feated Michigan in track at Berkeley

due to climatic conditions they cap-
tured first place in the Eastern Inter
collegiate track meet, hosing out the
Harvard team by half a point.

(By Harry B.Grundy)
Walter Wesbrook, captain of the
1921 Varsity tennis team, has fully
recovered, it is reported, from an op-
eration for appendicitis performed
while on the spring Eastern tour of
the net men, and is showing rare
form on the courts of the Detroit Ten-
nis club.
Under the three-year rule, Wes-
brook is ineligible for further col-
legiate participation, but his career
will be closely watched by all ten-
nis enthusiasts. In view of his na-
tional rating as twenty-seventh best
player for 1920, and his easy victories
over college opponents this summer,
students of the game expect to find
him among the first flight of Ameri-
can premier tennis exponents for
Major sports at Michigan for the
next year will be headed by men who,
have proven themselves to be the
most capable athletes in the Univer-
sity. It has been traditional at Michi-
gan that only those men who have
demonstrated their ability in actual
competition, have been elected to the
position of captaincy. This is in
striking contrast ,to the East, where
it is customary that the captain shall
play whether he has superior ability
or not. The Wolverine captains have
always been men who- have had to go
and win recognition along with the
other men.
In "Duke" Dunne, football captain,
Michigan has one of the har'dest fight-
ers and best linesmen in the West.
"Duke" will be playing his fourth
season when the whistle blows this
fall. This is possible due to the S.
A. T. C. ruling which permitted fresh-
men to compete in Varsity athletics.'
"Duke" got out for football his fresh-
man year and has/been a fixture ever

the gridiron he has been on Ecker-
sall's All-Western team, while he was
conceded to be one of the best back-
stops in the Big Ten last year. Vick
has the ability to sense the opposing
teams plans, and it is seldom that a
runner beats Ernie's throw to sec-
ond. His ability to handle the pitch-
ers made Vick a valuable man lastI
season when all of the Michigan hurl-
ing staff were new men.
The situation of Michigan captains
is somewhat analagous to that at the
University of Illinois, where Walquist
leads the football team, Carney, the
basketball five, McCurdy the diamond
squad, and Yates the cinder men. All
of these men are, as the Michigan
leaders, big men in thgir branch of
sport. One striking dissimilarity isj
the areas from which the two insti-
tutions draw thir athletes. Of the

Speed, pep and continuous action,
which have characterized the series
of auto race stories iu° which Wal-
lace Re'id has starred, 'are again pre-
dominant qualities in "Too Much
Speed", the new Paramount picture
which opens tomorrow at the Ma-
jestic theater.
Wally again dons the speed -togs
and of course wins another race and
a bride in the bargain. The story,
although complete in itself, again re-
vives the; characters seen in "What's
Your Hurry?" his recent Paramount
speed picture, and carries them on
through another series of delightful
Agnes Ayres is the girl and Theo-'
dore Roberts, as the father, is the
love opposition. Other characters are
played by Jack Richardson, Lucien
Littlefield, Guy Oliver, Henry John-
son and Jack Herbert. Byron Mor-
gan wrote the story and the scenario
as well. Frank Urson directed.

Walter Rea, the diminutive basket-
ball leader from Erie, Pennsylvania,;
was one of the big reasons why
Coach Mather's men startled the Con-
ference by seven straight wins which
placed them on top after they had
gotten away with a poor start. Rea
has played two seasons with the Wol-
verine five and his uncanny habit of
dropping in baskets from the center
of the floor has been an important
factor in Michigan's success. Origin-
ally a forward, Rea was changed to
running guard, where he has kept his
opponents' score low and at the same
time has be'en able to utilize his abil-
ity in making long shots.
Walter Simmons, track captain, was
Michigan's mainstay in the 100 and
220 yard dashes. Walter has in sev-
eral races made the 100 in 10 1-5 and
was one of the fastest dash men in
the Conference. With Simmons at
the helmm Michigan is sure to count
heavily in the dashes next year. It is
seldom that Walter has seen the dust
of another runner's heels.
Ernie Vick, baseball captain and
catcher on last year's Varsity, is one
of Michigan's most consistent athletes.
Ernie has established an enviable rec-
ord both in football and baseball. On
