Western Conference Favorite
Hing'es on Two Injured Stars

ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 29 A
peculiar situation ariaes in attempting
()), to forecast the outcome of the west
i em intercollegiate track meet hero J
; Juno 4 and 5, for -which 18 colleges
are already entered. i
The whole matter centers around
! the Michigan captain, Johnson, and
the Chicago captain, Higgins, both of j
whom have been laid up for somo time
with injuries and may not be ablo to J
dompete. If both Johnson and Hlgginfl'
are in Ihe meet the odds favor Mlchl-j
gan for taking the championship asj
the Wolverines have a better balanced!
team than the Maroons. !
If Higgins Is in and Johnson is out,!
Chicago should take tho meet, while J
if Johnson is .able to compete nnd'
Higgins unablo lo tmter Michigan is,
practically sure of winning provided
; their captain hasn't lost his speed dur-'
ing his enforced layoff. Both men will
he Olympic tryouts. !
On tho other hand If neither Higgins
nor Johnson can enter Illinois seems
j 1o ber the favorite, as it has probably.
i th best balanced team in the west.
California, although bringing a Small
team, most of whom are Pacific coast
stars, may be a dark horse, as little

. Is picked as tho probable winner by
; his past performances, with Emory of
I Illinois tho best hot for second place.
Schultz won the Drake 100-yard dash
In 9:4-5 seconds, and lie also won the
same event at the Penn relays. He
has tied4 the world's record for the in
door 75-yard dash. So far this year
, "Emery has won every 220-yard dash
he has entered. Cook of Michigan
has also been showing up well this
The favorites for the -HO are Eniory1
and Spink of Illinois, Butler of Michi-!
gan and Oss of Minnesota. Oss took
second in the conference last year,'
and the man who beat him is not com
peting again. j
Otis of Chicago stands as the lead
ing man for the mile and two-mile
events, although Furnas of Purdue, by
his performance May 15, is entitled' to!
By past records Johnson of Michi
gan lias it on any of the other entrants

by Westbrook of Michigan. Merchant
of California has done 23 feet 11
inches, and Is considered the best all
around athlete on the Pacific coast.:

sure of the shot put. Baker of Michi-

PHILADELPHIA. May 2S. For,
i the first time In miny years an out-j
? .standing favorite failed to develop in
1 the preliminaries Of the Intercolle-
j giatc track and field' championship
held here today. So closely were the
trial heats fought out at Franklin
i field In the 11 events contested, that
nt the close of the day any one of
; five or six institutions wns In a posl-
I tlon to capture tho forty-fourth cham
pionship of the 1. C. A. A. A., in tho
finals tomorrow. 1
Twenty coHcgos and universities
placed one or more men in the semi-
' finals and finals scheduled for Sat-'
urday, not counting the one and two J
; ' mile races, In which the entrants Avore i
! not required to participate in ellm-j
j lnatlon heats. Pennsylvania, the;
hosts to the visiting athletes from j
i all parts of the East and the Pacific;
' coast, led with a total of 15, with j
y Princeton at the Quakers' heels with i
" fourteen. Cornell was third with 11:
qualifiers, California 'and Dartmouth"
I were tied for fourth place with aeven
I j and Stanford was fifth with six.
Notwithstanding the perfect weath-;
, : or and track conditions, no records
D " "were broken. Performances, how-
I 1 ever, were close to the standard fori
I' tho games and there were no start-!
; ling upsets, the various college at-h-!
U) letic stars coming through In most!
I' cases according to predictions
1 The feature of the first day's con-
I tests was the remarkablo showing
I I made by the two Pacific coast uni-
I veraltles, California and Stanford.
I Crossing the continent with a com-
I blned force of but eight entrants, the
I two far western Institutions placed ,
I , at least one man 'In each of the 11
I , events and closed tho afternoon with
l! a total of 13 qualifiers. The strength'
I: of the westerners was about evenly'
Ij divided. Stanford placed two men in I
Ij tho hundred, one In the 120 hurdles, I
I' one in the high Jump, one In the 220
I A hurdles and one In the 'broad Jump.
I j:' California went her rival one better j
I 4, with qualifiers in the 220, 4 10 and j
I' ' 880 yarda runs: the broad Jump, shotl

I Stanford would probably have evened j
I' the score, but for the fact that Kirk-j
I say was obliged to pull up in the 200
I yard dash with a muscle cramp while j
Ij running easily In fourth place.

well balanced teams which, under the
I' coaching fo Lawson Robertson and;

'In the world In the furlong, together
;iwith Robert "Bob" Martin, western
distance champion, are the stars that
will perform. Both men have records

and is recognized as one of the Amerl-
jeans to bring laurels to this country
from the world meet "over there." J
In races at Lorin Farr park Monday
afternoon Haymond will handicap the
field in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. I
In the century the star will give the
field from 7 to 32 yards while in the I
furlong a limit of 25 yards will be
placed on the limit mon. This is one
of the best known phases to put a
(runner In condition. These two races
1 should bo thrillers and one of the I
largest crowds in the history of loc,l
athletics is expected to turn out andj
givo the stars tho glad hand.
In tho recent track meet here, Hay
mond clipped the furlong in the re
markable time of 22 seconds on a wet
track. In tho century he flew over the
'distance in 10 seconds flat. He is out
to shatter the state record in the hun

TEXAS TIMBER TOPPER
MAY GET PLACE ON
The south will send several athletes
to tho Olympic trials this summer, and
there is one collegian who is expected
lo win a berth on the team that
crosses the pond.
He is Joo Moss, captain of the Texas
University track team. His specialty
is tho hurdles, the 120 highs preferred.
Few hurdlers this day can negoti
ate the 120 highs in 14 4-5 seconds.
Those who do will undoubtedly make
tho United States team.
Moss ran the 120 highs at tho South
western Conference meet Saturday,
May 15. in 14 4-5 seconds, which is
1-5 second behind tho world record
time of Bob Simpson, Missouri crack.
Moss' time was taken by seven A. A.
lT. officials and goes down as a new
Southwestern Conference mark. He
also shattered the southern record in
the 220 low hurdles, making the dls-,
tance in 24 3-5 seconds, one second
behind the mark of Simpson.
Moss has been In four meets this
year and twice reeled off the 120 high
hurdles in 14 4-5 seconds. Few hur
dlers are likely to make better time
than this Texan. Ho stands 6 feet
and weighs ISO pounds.
