UNNEY RANKED BY RICKARD AS "ONE.
OF GREATEST FIGHTERS IN HISTORY"
(By Associated Press)

tEW YORK, Jan. 10.-For the'
th successive year "Tex" Rickard
y lined up the rank and file of
lists for "The Ring," a boxing pub-
tion, and :at the head of the par-
set Gene 'Tunney, who just re-
ly declared war on the promoter.
L1 recognized champions lead their
ses except in the somewhat ob-
e junior welterweight sector,
re "Rudy" Goldstein gained top
tion over "Mushy" Callahan,
ed as champion of the 145-pound
s.
all but the heavyweight clas's
promoter split the divisions into
groups, only the first of which
e ranked numerically. Among the
derous battlers Rickards set Tun-
first, Dempsey second, and
Lkey third, before dividing the re-
inder of the heavyweights into two
ups. .
There is no denying that Tunney

is not only a champion, but a grewt.
champion," he said. "I believe that
he is one of the greatest champions
seen in history. Any man who saw
Dempsey make the most desperate ef-
fort of his entire career and send Tun-
ney down-and then saw Tunney
come out of this crisis and fight back
until he hurt his man, must admit
that in Tunney the American ring has
developed another outstanding expon-
ent of science, power, gameness-and
sportsmanship."
In the lightest three divisions where
title possession has been the subject
of controversy since the recognized
champions voluntarily relinquished
their purple robes, Rickard ranked
Tony Canzoneri at the head of the
featherweights, Bud aylor at the
head of the bantamwei ihts, and gave
the flyweight palm to C rporal "Izzy"
Schwartz.

ing pre ious to ihe past week
end.
After allowing opponents an aver-
age of better than 35 points in pre-
CoII feirence encounters, the Wolver-
ine cagemen took a decided though
rather unexpected change for the
better by yielding only 25 and 26
markers respect ively to their firs ;
Big Ten opponents.
Ouitstlandng in the improved
defense was the recovery of Er-
nie McCoy from the rather dev-.
asting s1111p into- l which he ha
fallen of late. McCoy seemed f
almost like a different player on
the trip, and well lie might. Be
that as it may, lie played fine ,
ball.
W,\alter, sophomore scoring ace,C
who has the habit of scoring 10 or
12 points a game, found McCoy a
tough proposition and finished the
contest with two baskets and a free
throw to bis credit.
At Madison, McCoy was delegated
to hound the trail of Behr, who was
among the, first half dozen in scor-
ing last year. Behr made 14 points 11n
his first game, outscoring the who-'
Ohio team, but was held without so
much as a single point by McCoy
who committed but one foul.

If McCoy can continue at this
pace, one guard post will be well
taken care of andi much of the
defense troubles wiped away.
The offense, however, was not so
encouraging. Michigan lacked tho
drive and pen and speed displayed by,
he furious Wildcats at Patten gym-
nasiurm. This drive was also lacking
at Madison.
A defense found, the offense
crti nbled and the Wolverines
mnised many shots at Northwest-
ern. larrigan's work at bring-
ing the ball down the floor
brought much favorable corn-
ncnt froin Wildcat fans and his
guarding was good also, except
for a brief lapse at the start of
the second period 'wjen Fisher
slipped by him with scores which
had telling effect. At Madison,
the guarding of the Michigan
captain was still a bit off, for
it will be remembered that l1ar-
rigan was considered :about as
fine at guarding as anyone in the
Big Ten last year.
Danny Rose figured as the key man
in a shift of the lineup against the
Badgers. Coach Veenker shifted
Captain Harrigan to forward along
side of Oosterbaan benching Raber
and putting Rose in at the guard
vacated by Harrigan.

ON ARMY'S DATE
(By Associated Press)
PRINCETON, Jan. 10.--Princeton
loomed today a.- a likely opponent for
the Navy on the gridiron in place of
the Army.
Dr. Charles W. Kennedy, chairman
of Princeton's board of athletic con-
trol, tannounced that f'all matters of
immediate interest to Princeton ath-
letics" would be considered at a meet-
ing Thursday.
"I refuse to affirm or deny that
Princeton will play the Navy in 1928,"
lie added.
The feeling prevailed in university
circles that the foot ball officials de-
sired to witlhold any in ormation un-
til definite arrangements were com-
pleted. *
By accepting a game with the Navy,
Princeton would be obliged to play on
Nov. 24, a week after the Yale con-
test, which would be a radical de-
parture from Princeton athletic cus-
tom.
The Yale-Princeton rivalry, the old-
est in existence, has been reserved as
the season's biggest and final engage-
ment on the Princeton schedule since
1889.
The proposed contest with the Navy
would be on the same date of the
Harvard=Yale encounter.
Navy and Princeton formerly met
on the gridiron but their relations
were terminated in 1926 because of a
disagreement over dates. The An-
napolis eleven was victor in 1926 by
a 27 to 13 score.

The Army had been considered as
possibility on Princeton's schedule

a

but the Navy now is favored because
of the. three-year eligibility rule and
the non-transfer regulation which also
is adhered to by Princeton.
FON DU LAC-Knute Rockne has
accepted an invitation to speak here
Jan. 31.

O6HIO GRAPP:LING TEAM
Little Is Known Jtegardling StrengtO
Of 1927 Oldo Conference Title
winning 1Mat; Outfit:
FOUR VETERANS COMPETE
Michigan's 1928 wrestling team will
open the mat schedule by meeting
the Ohio university outfit at 7:30
o'clock tonight in Yost field house.
This will be the first time that a
Wolverine mat team has ever faced an
aggregation representing the Ohio
school.
Comparatively little is known con-
cerning the strength of the invaders,
aside from the fact that they Gap-
tured the Ohio\ Conference title last
season, due to the fact that this is
also their first meet this year. Re-
ports indicate, however, that most of
the men are veteran performers from
the 1927 outfit which boasted no less
than six of the seven individual
champions in the Ohio Conference.
Michigan will be represented in the
opening meet by a team equal, or
nearly equal, to the 1927 aggregation
in strength, as veteran performers are
available in four of the seven class-
es. The three new men have had
-sufficient experience to warrant a
good showing.
Hewitt and Thomas, two of the new-
comers, will compete in the 115 and
125-pound divisions respectively,
while Captain Watson and Sauer, vet-
eran performers from last year's
team will represent the Wolverines in
the 135 and 145-pound classes.
George, heavyweight star of the 1925
team, is available this season, and
will compete 1h this weight.
Coach Keen is undecided whethef
he will use Donahoe or Warren in the
158-pound class.
