MICHIGAN ENTERS TEN MEN
FOR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
When the Varsity and freshmen
swimming teams meet in their annual
con est at 3 o'clock tomorrow - after-
noon, an argument that has been
warmly debated ever since the open-
ing of practice in November will be
decided. Coach Goldsmith, freshman
mentor, claims to have built up an ag-
gregation of tank artists that can re-
peat the performance of last year's
freshman squad and down Coach Dru-
lard's Varsity hopefuld, while mem-
bers of the regular squad are confid-
ent that they are superior to the yearl-
ings. Whatever the result, it is sure
to be a hard fought encounter.
Decide Team Personnel
Other than settling the question of
Varsity or freshman superiority the
meet will help in deciding the four
men who will swim in the state cham-
pionship relay event at the Detroit
Athletic club Saturday evening. Pick-
ing the four best 100 yard men now
on the Varsity squad is a difficult
proposition and Coach Drulard is not
finding his selection easy. Captain
Gilmore and Hyde are certain selec-
tions but the choice of the other two
lies between several good men, Stek-
etee, Searle, Smith, and Randall ap-
pearing to have the edge. Hubbard
is being saved for the 500 yard event
in which he is expected to show well.
State Meet Entries
Manager Elliott has announced the
following entries for the state meet
at the D. A. C. on Saturday: 50 yard
free style-Captain Gilmore, Hyde,
Randall, Smith, Steketee, Searle; 220
yard free style-Captain Gilmore;
Hyde, Searle; 500 yard free style
Hubbard; fancy diving-White; 50
yard handicap-Schwartz, Ullmann,
White.
'lather Expains
" tease" Report
"I would rather lose every basket-
ball game on the Conference schedule
than win one by questionable meth-
ods," stated Coach E. J. Mather yes-
terday, when questioned regarding the
appearance of several of Michigan's
court squad with greased arms and
shoulders in the Wisconsin basketball
game Saturday.
"The truth of the matter is," contin-
ued the coach, "that several of the
players returned to the foor before
the preparation used in rubbing them
down between the halves had .been
wiped off. ;Neither Billy Fallon, the
trainer, nor myself was aware of the
fact.
"At any rate there would have been
no advantage in purposely greasing
the men as the ball would have been
Just as hard for Michigan to handle
as it was for her opponents," Mathe
concluded.
Army Denies Tale

denial has been made in an officia
statementsby the miltary authorities
that they have made any efforts t
induce by illegitimate means, members
of football teams of other colleges t
desert their teams and come to Wes
Point for athletic purposes. The au
thorities assert that no attentio
would have been paid to these charg
es had they not attained a more o
less authentic character by their ap
pearance under Annapolis headlines

A rigid investigation has failed to re

army has used no unsportsmanlik
methods to induce athletes to ente
West Point.

DAIS CUP SERIES ENDS
TENNIS' GRETST YEAR
UNITED STATES TEAM EXHIBITS
PHENOMENAL BRAND OF
PLAY
When on the last day of 1920, Wil-
liam Tilden II and William Johnston
defeated Norman Brookes and Gerald
Patterson in the doubles match of the
Davis Cup matches, not only did the
coveted trophy again come into the
possession of the United States after
an absence of six years, but with this
victory, was closed perhaps the great-
est tennis year in the history of the
country. Gathering strength and1
prestige during the year by virtue of
their victories in this country and in
the world championships later on in
England, the Americans made a clean
sweep of the year and as a fitting cul-
mination to their !previous victories,
completely = outplayed the defending
Australians in the challenging Dav-
is Cup matches at Auckland, New
Zealand, last week.
Johnston Stars
Particularly spectacular in the in-
ternational contests was the work of
William Johnston. His play was
nothing less than remarkable and to
him must go the greatest praise and
glory for the American victory. The
Californian was at the top of his old-
time stride and his excellent headwork
and judgment couped with his sensa-
tional sped and driving were the out-
standing features of the matches.
No less remarkable was the work
of William Tilden, Johnston's team-
mate. The tall Philadelphian with
his varied strokes and complete mas-
tery of all styles of game eliminated
his opponents in masterly fashion.
While his victories were not as deci-
sive as those of Johnston, neverthe-
less after studying his adversaries'
game, he outplayed them with the
skill of a champion. While it was
generally conceded that the Ameri-
cans would take the matches, it was
not thought that they would score
such a complete victory, particularly
in the doubles. It was in this con-
test that the sensational volleying and
net work of Johnston was most re-
markable and surpassed even the vet-
eran Brookes, who is considered the
greatest doubles player today. Til-
den's terrific service also came in good
stead for the winners.

r BASKET SHOOTING
TOURNEY NEAR END
Five of the 10 men who qualifie
last week finished their final 50 try
at the basket Monday afternoon in th
foul shooting contest which is in prog
I ress at Waterman gymnasium. In
1 consequence, J.Jerome and W. F
Rice stilltop the list of cup aspir

o ants with 70 and 69 baskets, respec
stively. The other three men fell con
s siderably below the standard set ear-
t lier in the race. The color of the
tallies may be changed when the other
- five men who qualified get their 50 re-
maining chances at the basket.
r Th Poor Scores
The scores to date are poor com-
- pared with those made in the free
throw tourney run off last season a
- the gymnasium. At least five men
.e had total, scores of 80 or more at the
r conclusion of the event. During th
past week the two best totals made
are fully 10 points below these, with
the rest of the counts trailing well i
n the rear. This is more noticeable in
iview of the fact that there are nearly
twice as many men entered this yea
- in the tournament as there were last
- winter. Officials from the Intramura
t office will be at the gymnasium fror
- 1 to 3 o'clock this afternoon so tha
e the men who have not finished their
complete number of shot at the bas
ket can do so.,

heat.
Losch proved to the spectators that
he is gradually rounding into his 1919
form and by the opening of the indoor
season should be in the best shape of
his career. In the second heat of Sat-
urday's exhibition he seemed to have
his opponent shaded until a slight
wrench of a tendon, an old injury,
slowed him up perceptibly. Scholz iss
residing in Detroit, where he is com-t
peting for the D. A. C. and intends toe
come to Ann Arbor for similar work-
outs each Saturday for the remaindera
of the preliminary training season.
ilofstetter Pleasesu
With the resumption of hostilitiest
following the Christmas recess thet
Varsity has settled down to real workc
in preparation for the first indoort
meet of the year, the Illinois Relay1
Carnival at Urbana on March 5, where
it is expected that last year's victory1
will be repeated. The showing made
by Hofstetter in the two-mile is thet
most encouraging sign that has greet-
ed Coach Farrell this year, this mant
has been working into the distance1
in a manner that augurs well for an
event woefully weak last year. The
dashmen, counted as one of the
strongest units of the squad, have
come strong in the last few days and:
bid fair to surpass all expectations.
Simmons, Harvie, and Kelly in addi-
tion to Losch seem to be the pick of
the 100 yard men.
Vault Squad Strong
Farrell's big problem remains as yet
unsolved, the development of a cap-
mile and half mile duo, the men are
hard workers and fair runners but up'
to the present have failed to absorb
Steve's instructions. The middle dis-
tance squad, led by Capt. Larry But-
ler, has begun to show the speed that
made it one of the Big Ten's strong-
est last spring. Joiner, Wetzel, and
Wheeler have all 'appeared for regu-
lar workouts this week and have made
rapid strides toward top form. Wes-
brook has spent several strenuous
weeks at his event and at present has
a slight physical edge on the other
pole vaulters. This event is worry-
ing Steve but little as he figures that
his trio, made up of Wesbrook,
Slaughter and Landowski, hasn't a'
superior in the West. Naylor is an-
other vaulter that has .made better
than an ordinary showing.

onight as a sort of safety-valve for
pent-up rivalries and will continue to
do so during the next two weeks when
the different houses will engage in the
raternity basketball tournament. The

shake-up in the standings of the fra-

ILLINOIS IS PREPAING
FDARCARNIVALVISITORS
(By Associated Press)
Urbana, Ill., Jan. 10.-The Univer-:
sity of Illinois relay carnival, which
is to be held here March 5, is expect-,
ed to be not only one of the largest
indoor track meets of the year, but
also, judging from the entries, one of
the fastest. The enormous size of the
university armory has made it possi-I
ble to construct one of the best indoor
tracks in the country. It has been
carefully worked over this fall, and
the time trials indicate that the track
is faster than ever.
Large pits have been made for the
broad and high jumping and pole-
vaulting, and these make the condi-
tions practically equal to an outdoor
field. The 75-yard straightway, where
the dashes and hurdles will be run,
has been the scene of some nof the
most famous races in track history.
Several world's records have been
equaled and broken on this track.
