Sport Snaps

Supporters of Harry Wills in his
demandi for a championship battle
with Jack Dempsey point to the
showing of the champion against
Tommy Gibbons and Bill Brennan to
prove that Will's failure to dispose
of Luis Firpo in twelve rounds in
their battle the other night does not
disqualify him for a chance at the
heavy crown.
Gibbons, you recall, stayed 1
rounds with the Manassa Mauler. The
late Bill Brennan stayed almost 12
rounds with Dempsey before he was
beaten to the floor.
Will's boosters are right in assert-
ing that Will's lack of a knockout
punch doesn't necessarily eliminate
him as a possibility. They do, however,
overlook. the one salient fact that-
The man who took all Wills had
for 12 rounds lasted only two against
Dempsey.
Comparison of the showing of
Dempsey and Wills against the same
man-Firpo---is more indicative of
their relative ability than the records
of Dempsey against those two men but
for the fact that--
Harry Wils never fought those
men.
President Coolidge is said to have
remarked that he would like to engage
Chick Evans to teach him golf if the
former decides to take up the Scottish
game. And duffer will tell you the1
president's title of "Silent Cal" will
be ruined after he has flubbed a few.
These are lean days for British
athletics. In one single day recently
the American polo team turned back
the British challenge team in decisive
fashion, the British team was defeated
overwhelmingly by the American
squad in the annual Walker golf cup
series and the British soccer team met
defeat at the hands of their hosts.
Which ought to cause the British
lion to growl a bit.
Speaking of the defeat of Britian's
athletic teams.
The decisive trouncing handed the
British polo squad by Devereaux Muil-
burn and his men is not belittled by
the stories emanating from question-
able sources regarding dissension in
the ranks of the British team or
other happenings off the field.
The American players demon-
strated clearly by their own playing
that they form the greatest four that
has ever worn the American colors
on a polo field.
The unfortunate stories will hurt
the prestige the game has enjoyed,
however, leaving the U. S. stars who
have helped make the sport popular
in this country the innocent victims.
The high personal character and
clean sportsmanship of the men inter-
ested in the promotion and playing of
the game in the past carried it into
the foreground in sport.
Clarence "Big Boy' Kraft, home run
star of the minor leagues, will have
to wait another year to tie or beat
Babe Ruth's run of 59 home runs in
a season. The Forth Worth slugger
collected just 55 before the Texas
league season ended recently. Had he
not slumped in the last days of the
season he might have turned the trick.
West Point, Sept. 23..- The Army
football squad, confined to classrooms
until late afternoon, will practice by
the light of powerful searchlights after
the daylight saving time schedule is
abandoned, it was announced today.
The lights will be trained to follow
the ball.

Farrell; Ma yHold Big
Ten Itace Here
AGGIE DATE NOT SET
With the return of only two men
from last year's squad, Captain
Shenefield and Miles Renkie, the
Varsity cross country outlook is not
optimistic.
Nearly all of the men from last
year's Reserve and Freshman squads
have reported. Among the newcom-
ers is Cochrane, star half miler of
last year's track team, while two
other men to report are Briggs and
Baker, freshmen two milers last year.
Briggs showed up particularly well
in both cross country and track last
year.
The opening race of the year will
be with the Aggies but no date has
been definitely set. Usually it is held
the morning of the M. A. C. game but
Coach Farrel feels that such an early
date for a race is not advisable, as'
it would necessitate a rushed condi-
tioning of his men.
The annual dual meet with Wiscon.
sin will be held in the morning of the
Wisconsin football game October 25,
over the Ferry field course. The meet
with the Badger harriers will be fol-
lowed by a triangular meet with O. S.
U. and Illinois probably at Urbana.
The Western Conference champion-
ship meet, which may be held here,
will close the season.
If the meet should be offered to
Michigan it is not certain that the
authorities would accept, due to the
heavy traffic on the roads about Ann
Arbor on the mornings of football
games when the meet would be sche-
duled.
At present Coach Farrell is sendingj
his men through light workouts withI
emphasis on form and conditioning
exercises.I

TO RETAIN 15-20 MEN
All students eligible for the Var-
sity golf team and whose record on a
regulation 18 hole golf course is 88
or better are asked to report at 9
o'clock Saturday morning fro play in i
a medal round of 36 holes over the
Ann Arbor golf course.
From 15 to 20 players are to be
retained from the leading qualifiers'
as the Varsity golf squad. Eighteen
holes are to be played in the mora-1
lng and afternoon under the direction
of Holdsworth, Hastings, Heely, mem-
bers of last spring's squad.
Every contender for the squadl
should strengthen his game during the
fall in order to compete for places
on the team during the spring tryouts'
when the Varsity team will be select-
ad.
It is to be remembered that the
Varsity team finished second in the
Conference meet by loss of a few
strokes and that Holdsworth won in-
dividual honors.
The new stadium of the Gophers,
which the Wolverines will dedicate
when they journey to Minneapolis on
Nov. 1, is rapidly nearing completion.
The contractors are under an agree-
ment to have the stadium in readiness
or pay the admission price of all

pleted.

CHRISTMAN TRIP OFF
Determined to give his basketball
team at least one severe test before
the opening of the regular Confer-
ence season, Coach Mather has book-
ed the strong Navy five for a contest
to be played on Jan. 2 in the Yost
field house.
The Navy squad will play three
games on its Western trip, meeting
the Wolverines in the final game be-
fore returning to Annapolis. Two
other Big Ten teams will meet the
Navy in the other games, Minnesota
and Chicago being booked to play the
invaders.
Due to a new Big Ten ruling which
permits of but three non-Conference
games in a season, Coach Mather was
forced to abandon the customary
Christmas trip.

Jack Blott, '24, Varsity football cen-
ter for two years, selected on Walter
Camp's All-American eleven last sea-
son, and captain of baseball last spring
has been added to the Wolverine grid-
iron coaching staff, according to an
announcement made by Fielding H.
Yost, director of intercollegiate ath-
letics.
Jack has been with the Cincinnati
Reds since his graduation in June, but
his baseball season ends this week,
the big pivotman reporting for work
on Monday. Blott will assist in de-
veloping a strong forward wall, but
will pay particular attention to the,
guards and centers, a task similar to
that by Ernie Vick, also former Wol-'
verine center selected by Camp for his
All-American team.

Walter Jo'11hnsoli -
Most baseball fans are pulling for
Washington to clinch the American1
League pennant because of the popu-
larity of Waltor Johnson, star vet-
eran pitcher of the Senators. This is
Johnson's eighteenth season in the
majors, but he is still probably the
peer of American League twirlers.
Washington's success is due chiefly
to Johnson's work in the box.
