At Yost Field llHuse
WARREN OPPOSES VARERO
With victories over their first tour
opponents, Ohio.university, West Vir-
ginia, Michigan State, and Ohio State
already tucked away, Coach Clifford
Keen's Wolverine wrestlers will at-
tempt to add a fifth to their unbroken
'string of wins when they face the
Northwestern mat team at 7:30 to-
night in Yost field house in their
second Conference meet.
Sciuler Returns To Purple
The Wildcat team, after a poor
start, losing to Purdue and Indiana,
25-6, in its first two Conference
matches, has been slowly rounding
into shape. Captain Rudy Schuler,
star heavyweight, became inegligible
after semester examinations, but the
gain of Yarbro, Reicke, and Boddie
to the Purple team has more than off-
set hi's loss.
Indiana had already been beaten by
Ohio, 25 1-2 to 6 1-2, and the Wolver-
ines' 17-6 victory over the Buckeyes
a week ago in their first Big Ten
match gives them a decided advantage
on paper, but it is expected that the
addition of Northwestern's star per-
formers in the 125, 145 and 148 pound
divisions will materially strengthen
the Wildcat's chances of handing
Michigan her first defeat.
Lupton, Hewitt In 1"eature Blout
The feature bout of the meet is ex-
'ected to be the 115 pound encounter
in which Ralph Lupton of Northwe'st-
ern, 1927 intercollegiate champion,
will meet Hewitt, Michigan's star
sophomore featherweight. Lupton has
never been defeated in three years of
college competition and has shown
himself capable of his old time form
by winning four of his five matches
this year by falls.
Hewitt, his opponent, is Michigan's
high point man so far this year, hav-
ing gained two falls, a time advantage,
and a tie out of four bouts. Accord-
ing to Coach Keen, Hewitt should1
give the Wildcat star a stiff tussle,
and even stands a chance of breaking
Lupton's long string of victories.
Reicke, one of Northwestern's
newly eligible veterans will oppose
Thomas in the former's first appear-
ance thi's year. In his two starts,
against Ohio university and OhioI
State, Thomas has gained a fall and a
time advantage decision, but should
be given a good fight by Reicke, who
is reported one of the best wrestlers

and second places in the single bob-
sleigh race of the winter Olympic
games this morning.

Black And Gold
GOPHERS MEET PURDUE
Conference basketball fans will fo-
cus attention on one, and only one,
of the three Conference basketball
games that are to be played tonight,
namely that between Purdue and In-
diana at Bloomington. In addition
to this tilt, the classic of the 1928
title race, Northwestern will perform
at Minneapolis, while the Badgers
entertain the lowly Buckeye quin-
tet.
The Deanm'en cherish a twctbold
ambition in tonight's contest, namely
to avenge the 28-25 defeat sustained
at the hands of the Boilermakers at
Lafayette earlier in the seatson, and
to achieve the accomplishment which
no other Big Ten outfit has yet real-
ized.
indiana To Mi.s Beckner
In spite of the fact that the In-
niana team will face the invaders
minus the services of Beckner, who
played a prominent part in the for-
mer ,t~ontest, the Lambert-coa,,hed
aggregation is not taking tonight's
game at all lightly.
A point of added interest is that
tonight's battle will see Branch Mc-
Cracken, Hoosier center and leading
point scorer of the Conference, pit-
ted against one of his foremost ri-
vals, Murphy, the elongated Boiler-
maker pivot man. Coach Dean has
been concentrating on a defense that
will offset the shooting ability of
Murphy, Harmeson, Wheeler, and
Cummins.
Itarmneson To Start
Contrary to reports earlier in the
week, Harmeson, sharp-shooting for-
ward on the Purdue team, is expect-
ed to start the game. Harmeson re-
ceived a rather painful ankle injury
in Purdue's last contest and it was
feared that he might be out of the
lineup for several weeks.
Aside fronT the Purdue-Indiana
battle, iWsconsin and Northwestern.
are rated favorites over Ohio State
and Minnesota respectively. The Bad-
ger, with one eye fixed on the battle
b etween the Hoosier rivals in hopes
that Indiana will succeed in handing
the Boilermakers their first reverse,
will oppose the Buckeyes for the
second time this season.

Shocker, veteran right handed pitch-
er of the Yanlkees, apparently has
ended his 12 yea'r career of major
league baseball by voluntary retire-
ment. But officials of the Yankees
are not sure "whether "e ioans it
of rot."
'I lie announcem'ent came in a tele-
gran to business manager Ed. Bar-
row s of the world's chainiois in
which Shocker said he was retiring
"ror the furtherance of my bUtsiness
interests at home."
Both the veteran pitcer '?ir' dl Yan-
kee eflicials denied that i. was a
holdorut or that there had beea any
disagreement between 'then. in re-
gard to the salary to be paid him this
yar. Barrows said the telegram was
the first he heard from Shocker since
his contract was mailed. The pitcher
hd said nothing about not being sat-
'sried with the terms offer.=d, Bar-
rows added.
Asked what the club intended to
do about it, Barrows said that the
next move was up to Shocker.
BASKETBALL SQUAD MAKES
HIGH SCHOLASTIC RECORD
Official figures released recently
reveal the fact that the members of
the Varsity basketball roster earned
a scholastic average for the semester
just concluded approximating the
mark which hitherto stood as a record
for all squads; that established two;
seasons ago by the track team.
A total of 424 honor points as com-
pared with the C standard of 294
points was made by the 20 athletes on
the Varsity sduad. All in all, 21
hours of A, 104 hours of B, 153 hours
of C, and oily 16 hours of D were
compiled. Not a single failure was
recorded against the court performers.
JOIE RAY MAY ENGAGE
IN INDOOR TRACK MEET
(By Associated Press.)
CHICAGO, Feb. 17.-The return of
Joie Ray to the indoor tracks he for-
sook two years ago, may occur in the
K. of C. games in New York, Feb. 29.
Ray said today that time trials next
week will determine whether he will
send in his entry for the one mile
race in which Dr. Otto Peltzer, Ger-
man champion, and Lloyd Hahn,
American champion, are matched, or
decide upon the 'special two mile run.
Ray had deeided to try his speed in
the Illinois A.C. games here last week,
but Coach Johnny Behr at that"timne
said Joie was not quite ready.

Will Race This Week coach who has been confined to S't.

MILE RELAY IS FEATURE
Varsity track athletes, in accord-
ance with the regular program for
Saturday afternons, will compete to-
day at the field house in a seriest
of time trials which will have muchr
bearing on the com-position of thef
relay squads which will travel to1
Cleveland and Lansing on Friday.
A series of match races has been
arranged by Coach Stephen J. Far-I
rell, features of which will be a spe-
cial mile relay event, a duel between1
Lomont and Leonard in the 880 yard
run, and the sprint for the '{field1
house "champoinship." The contest-
ants in the invitational dash will in-
clude Hester, Varsity captain and thet
holder of various indoor and outdoori
Conference championships; Tolan,t
national scholastic sprint title-hold-
er; and two other freshmen, Murry
and Cook, posessors of enviable prep
school trophies.
Promptly at 3 o'clock a field of six
will start the half mile grind. In
this group will be Getz, Grunow,
Kennedy, Jesson, Hunt, and Lawson,
all aspirants for places on the two-
mile quartet which will compete in
the Michigan State carnival on Fri-
(lay.
Following this group, Lomont and
Leonard will engage in a special 880
yard match against each other and

condition and should approach the

Joseph's hospital, that I feel some
sort of story should be forthcoming,
even though there is very little that
can be said.
The Skipper has never recovered
fully after his operation for tumor
of the bladder last spring and was
forced to go back to the hospital
about six weeks ago. During that
time there has been little change in
his condition. As he said yesterday
when we dropped in to see him for
a few minutes, "some day they tell
me this infection of my bladder's go-
ing to clear up and all will be swell,
but I don't know when.
"One thing I do know, though,"
Mather added, "is that the first doc-
tor who tells me that I can
get out of here won't get a chance
to change his mind." Of course there
is no prospect of his being released
from the hospital before the basket-
ball season closes, two weeks from
Muonday. As he sees it, he will be
lucky to "escape" by April.

er cheerful all in all, but the same
thing (lay in and day out is quite a
tax on a mnan of \lather's enretic
nature. As he says: "10 o'clock 'tos-
day is just' the same as 10 o'clock
Wednesday or any other day."
Another thing contributing to the
Skipper's discomfiture is that "hlp-
less feeling" of being completely out
of the picture while that which will
always be "his team" Is enjoying
only indifferent success.
"It's bad enough to sit on the
bench and watch them get beat with-
out hanging on the other end of a
phone wire listening to someone else
telling you about it," said Mather.
During the Purdue game, whcn
Michigan was so far' behind, "Skip-
per Jim" found it just too much and
told one of the nurses to do the lis-
tening, that he couldn't.
Coach Mather, with that feeling of
knowing his men as only a coach
can, still holds a spark of optimisnr
and confidence. "If Harrigan would
just hit his stride, we might have a
chance to grab a tie out of this mess
yet," he remarked, but nobody knows
what's going to happen.
