TIME T RIAL~S TIS AF TERNOONy
TOv DECIDE EN"; TRES IN
The number of .men Michigan will
send to the Conference trck meet at
Ufrbana, Il., Saturday . ill be :deter-,
mined this afternoon in timxe .trials to,
b® held by Coach Steve Farrell.
It is practically -settled that ohn-
son, hurdler, will make the trip. There
is a strong possibility that Zoellin waulll
run in. the sprints,-:while rss in thej
pole vault, Haig in the high ump, and
Baker in the shot put might be taken
along. Forbes, in the qarter, andj
Sedgwick andl Dnnelly in the distanceI
runs-will dobtess conclude the' Wol-j
verine list of entries.
Farrell this afternoon will hold
tryouzts for the two mile relay .team,
that will run at Urbana.: There are
several men out for this team and
competition..for the positions will be
close. Stohl, Forbes, Donnelly, andj
Sedgwick stand out as the most likely
men fr the quartet. Each man will
run a half mile.
Reolay Team Breaks Reord
Two years ago a two mile relayj
beam coached by Stve Farrell broke
the intercollegiate indoor recrd andj
tied the world's record. This team
was composed of Carroll, Ufer, Mur-
phy,-andDonnelly. in a special match
race with .Yale, the quartet clipped .j
second r so off the frmer collegiate
record. A week before -the recorda
making radar the quartet was de-
fated by Yale in a lse record, the
,Blue ,runners coming close to record
Although the men Farrell has to
choose from this year are nt of te
same. caliber as those who .wor
Michigan's colors in the record-break-
ing run, still there are ,possibilities
for a fast two mile relay tam this
season. Dnnelly, though not yet in
the 'best of codition, is a better run-
ner -than he was two years ago. Sedg-
wick is not in a class wth 'Carroll or
I Ufer," but he can probably eqal the
time made by Murphy that night.
Forbes and Sthl are new men but are
%apable of half miles in _close to two

relay event and the time made will"
probably be close to the record. Chi-
