Coach Keen's Charges Gain Four Falls
And Three Itecisions To Turn
Back Invading Squad.
Ohio university's wrestling team was
no match for Coach Clifford Keen's
matmen, and the Wolverines opened
the- season in an impressive manner
last night in the field house by cap-
turing every one of the seven match-
es to decisively defeat the invaders by
a score of 29-0. Four matches were
decided by falls and three by deci-
Hewitt, colmpeting for the first time
as a Varsity matman started the
Wolverines by their road to victory
by pinning Griffith, holder of the
Ohio Conference 115 pound title, in
3:40 with a stopper hold. Thomas,
another new performer, repeated
Hewitt's act by gaining a fall over
Glass, another Ohio Conference title
holder, in the 125 pound match with
a body scissor and half nelson in
Watson Wins By Fall
Captain Alfred Watson experienced
considerable difficulty in pining Rob-
erts, the Buckeye 135 pounder, al-
though he clearly had the advantage
from the start. After nearly pinning
his man twice earlier in the match,
Watson finally managed to throw him
with a front scissor and half nelson
with less than half a minute of the
regular 10 minute period remaining.
The 145 pound bout proved to be
the feature performance of the meet,
going into overtime periods before
Sauer, Big Ten champion, was able
to gain a decision over Schaffer, Ohio
Conference title holder. In the ex-
tra periods the Wolverine star piled
up an advantage of 5:51 to win the
Warren Wins First Bout.
Coach Keen shifted Donahue, la'st
year's 158 pound star, into the lightt
heavyeight division, using Warren in
the lighter eight. Competing in his
first Varsity match, Waren gained a
decided advantage over his rival, By-
ers, to win by a margin of 8:55.
Wrestling as a light heavyweight
for the first time in his two year ca-
reer as a member of Varsity mat
teams, Donahoe gained a decision
over Begula of the visiting aggrega-
tion with a 7:25 advantage. Several
times during the bout the 1927 cap-
ain was on the verge of pinning his
heavier opponent.

Badgers Will Open
Iowa's Mat Season
(Special To The Daily)
IOWA City-Three former Western1
conference champions, all seniors,
are in the ranks of the University ofi
Iowa's wrestling team. which opens
the championship scramble with the
Wisconsin dual meet at Madison Fri-
day evening.
The Hawkeye stars are Royal A.
Weir, 125 pounds; R. Michael, 135
pounds; and Leslie B. Beers, 158
pounds. Weir was the conference '115
pound titlist two years ago when
Beers won the championship in the
145 pound class. Michael took the
crown in the 135 pound division in
However, the presence of the three
veterans is counterbalanced by a
trio of sophomores; on the seven man
team. M. W. Edwards will probably
care for the 115 pound elass and
J. M. Gilchrist is a certain heavy-
weight entrant.
Either Dennis Myers, football let-
ter man or R. E. Jarrard, Lone Tree,
another sophomore will wrestle for
the Iowans in the light heavyweight
division. The battle in the 145 pound
class will be carried by either A. E.
Montgomery, Fairfield, minor letter
man, of 1927, or J. H. Terry, Webster
City, who had some experience last
Wisconsin has never beaten an
Iowa team, coached by Harold (Mike)
Howard. Five dual meets hav been
won from the Badgers.

Francis Hogan, catcher, and Jimmy
Welch, an outfielder.
That no cash was involved in the
trade for Hogan and Welch only in-
creases the astonishment of such a
spectacular deal. H-ogan and Welch
are both virtually unknown and onlyI
mediocre players, while Hornsby is
considered the best player in the
National league and its highest-sal-
aried performer, having been report-
ed to have received $40,000 from the
Giants last year.
Slight explanation for the Giants'
release of Hornsby appears in the
cfficial statement regarding the trade,
which in substance declares that the
deal was consummated to the best
interests of the New York Giants.
This hints at the possibility of a
clash between the "Rajah" and theI
Giant officials during last year's sea-
son. Similar circumstances, it is re-
membered, surrounded Hornsbys
transfer by the St. Louis Cardinals
to the Giants in 1926.
In some quarters it has been ex-
plained that the trade was made with
the aim of the Giants' desires to bol-
ster the Braves, a weak member of
the league. The Braves have been
trampled around the cellar of the
league for several seasons and the
patronage dropped off to an alarming
degree in Boston.
Announcement was madetyesterday
that the hockey games between the
Michigan Tech team and the Univer-
sity of Michigan sextet scheduled for
tonight and tomorrow night have been
called off. Cancellation, of the con-
tests was made necessary due to the
lack of ice at the Coliseum.
The Michigan squad has not been
able to practice any night this week.
This means that unless some other
arrangements for practice are made
the Wolverines will face Minnesota
next week with little more than a
week's workout on the ice and with
a team as yet uncorordinated. The
games with Minnesota next T'uesday
and Wednesday are to be played in
Detroit on an artificial rink.
Marquette and other schools of this
section have been placed under the
same handicap in getting hockey
started this year. Warm weather has
ruined all chances for those with out-
side rinks to play.

More than the inore hope that
springs eternal, a newly found am-
bition instilled by the exhortations of
Coaches Kipke and Veenker, was evi-
dent yesterday as the Wolverine bas-
ketball squad went throuh the prac-
tice drill for the crucial Initana game
on Saturday which is expected to wit-
ness the t"itle-holders "snap out" of £

lead with his right instead of the

About 75 candidates are working
out in Yost field house under Coach
Stephen A. Farrell's supervision in
preparation for the 1928 track sea-
son. The first part of the training
period is being devoted to condition-
ing the men, as the initial meet of
the indoor season will not take place
until March 9 and 10 in the new
University of Iowa field house at
Iowa City. At this time the Big Ten
indoor championships are to be held.
The lose of Phil Northrop and Jack
Lovette will be particularly felt this
season. Northrop was one of the most
versatile athletes ever produced at
Michigan. He was a strong competi-
tor in the javelin, pole vault, running
broad jump, and high jump. Lovette
will also be missed, as he was a surd
point winner in the weight events.
Hester Is Strong In IPashies
Michigan will be well taken care of
in the dashes with Captain Hester,.
who will return to school next semes-
ter, and Chapman. The latter star-
red on the freshman team last year.
He is also a capable broad jumper, as
well as a sprinter.
The hurdles will also be well for-
tified with Cooper, Jones, and Tar-
bill available. Cooper placed in the
low hurdles in the 1927 Conference
meet, and was also a consistent point
winner indoors. Jones and Tarbill
scored in several dual meets.
Waldo Is Only high Jumper
Waldo is the only high jum'per who
possesses any Varsity experience. He
captured several first places in dual
meets. Michigan has not possessed
any high jumpers capable of clearing
six feet since the days of Smith and
Michigan's weakness this season
apparentlylies in the shot put and
distance runs. Robbins, freshman
numeral winner, has so far displayed
the most ability in heaving the
weights. The graduation of Ted
Hornberger leaves the team without
a capable two miler. Randolph Mon-
roe, -captain of the cross country
team, will probably develop into a
point winner in the mile run.
Besides the Conference meet at
Iowa City, the. Wolverine indoor
schedule includes dual meets with
Cornell and. Harvard.
