Show Potentialities
In Preliminary Bouts
Recent Conference practice wrestl-
ing meets tend to substantiate the pre-
dictions of followers of the sport re-
garding the relative strength of the
teams in the eastern and western di-1
visions of the Big Ten, although
several of the outfit's have yet to
open their 1928 schedules.

Illinois, last season's Conference
champion and Michigan, winner of the
n title in the eastern section, have
i proved themselves worthy of the sup-
er port accorded them before the sea-
son opened by winning their first
meets by very decisive margin's. Wis-
consin, the other Big Ten team that
t has opened its 1928 card, has been
ess successful, losing both of its
y first two encounters.
ys The Wolverines experienced no dif-
ficulty in overcoming the Ohio uni-
versity team in tiheir opening en-
[1 'gagement, taking every one of the
r seven matches to defeat the 1927 Ohio
Conference title holders by a 29-0
score. Four of the bouts -were won by
falls and three by decisions.+

Wolverines in its first meet last Sat-

counters, dropping both of them.I

Quinn, now with the Philadelphia
Athletics, was born "way back" in
1885, which makes him -nearly 43
years old now. He first played pro
ball in 1907, at the time when few of
the present group of college stu-
dents were even in rompers. Two
years later he broke into the majors
with the New York Yankees. Since
that time he has played with Boston
and Philadelphia..
At the time of Quinn's debut
many of our stars of today
scarcely knew what baseball was.
I Lou Gehrig and Paul Waner,
most valuable players in their
leagues, were just learning their
A B C's. Tony Lazerri was five
years old; Earl Combs was seven.
Twenty years is a long time in base-
ball, especially for a pitcher, but
Quinn is still a good hurler. Last
season he turned in a record of 15
wins and 10 losses.
Friday night's pugilistic effort of
Promoter Tex Rickard ended in
dismal failure so far as at leastJ
three persons were concerned and
it proved a great disappoiptment
to many others.
That draw decision meant many
things and implied others, but it shat-
tered, partially at least, the dream of
Mr. Rickard for a summer filled with
titular battles for Gene Tunney. It
ruined, for the present anyhow, the
aspirations of Jack Sharkey and Tom
Heeney for chances at the champion.
The decision met with much dis-
satisfaction and it seems to have
been the general opinion, es-
pecially among sport criticism that.
the Boston fighter got the worst
of the deal:
Sharkey was far from the same man
who took that terriffic battering from
Dempsey last July. His "finishing"
right seemed to be "finished" as he
scarcely landed a blow with it and
once missed so badly that he fell
sprawling on the floor. His blows
were 'wild.'
He showed himself to be hurt
tremendously by the long layoff
and was susceptible to body
punches. The only possibility that
Sharkey seems to have is through
another fight. Perhaps this fight
was to him like Dempsey's match
with Gibbons at Shelby which
found the Manassa Mauler, unable
to hit accurately. Against Firpo
a few months later, however, he
was an entirely different man,
recovered from his slump in every
way. This may prove to be true
with Sharkey.

The former made him more or
less popular even though the
match was a poor one in many
ways; )the Tfatter characteristic -
also won him admiration, and if;
he can improve in other ways it
is possible that Heaney may yet
develop, into a great figh'er.
The way the man from the Anti-
podes took blows from Sharkey's leftt f
hand punch meant either one of twof
things-that he was tough or that 'J'Uolleene-.
Sharkey's punch had lost its sting. Who last night not only ruined his
