Foi

LOMONT WINS HALF MILE
In the feature trial race of the
afternoon at the field house yes,
terday, Freese defeated Grodsk)
in the 440, yard run ;o decide the
fourth man- who will make the
trip to the Western Conference in-
door meet on the mile relay team.
The Seymour twins and Tarbill are
certain to make the trip on the
mile team, but the fourth man had
not been decided.
The winner's time in this race
was 53 seconds, while the former
Varsity sprinter was only a step
behind. Grodsky spoiled his best
chance to win by starting his spurt
too soon, and he could not pass his
-opponent on the turn, not having
any reserve to pull him ahead at
the tape.
Conference Foes Busy
The half mile run was off in two
heats because of the large number
of aspirants for the open position
on the coming trip. Ten men be-
ing included in the number who
ran. In the first heat Lomont had
an easy time winning in, the time
of 2 minutes and 1-5 second, while
his nearest rival, Bensen, took
2:02 to go the distance. D'Anna
placed' third in this first heat with
the time of 2:03 which was 2
and 2-5 seconds faster than
the time made by the winner of
the second heat, Colby.
While the Wolverines have been
running against time and them-
selves, the other Conference teams
have been meeting Big Ten oppon-
ents, and thus gaining much valu-
able experience. Illinois maintain-
ed an old tradition in defeating
the Iowa track team by the score
of 60 2-3-34 1-2 in a dual meet.
Iowa has never won from the
Illini in either an outdoor or in-
door dual track meet.
Illinois appeared particuraly
strong in the dashes and hurdles,
Bob Rogers equaling the world's
mark in the 75 yard high hurdles
event, besides accounting for other
upsets.

r EDITOR'S NOTE: This is
the first of a series of arti-
cles comp-tring the relative
.strength of the Michigan and
t 1i"ois wrestling teams ih the
various weights.
Illinois, with veterans represent-
ing the Orange and' Blue in: the
y 118 and 128 pound classes, will
rate an edge over the Michigan
representatives in the two light-
est classes when the teams clashi
Saturday eight at Urbana for the
Conference mat championship
The Suckers have dominated
Big Ten wrestling since its in-f
ception some eight years ago,
and have run up an impressive
string of titles, while the Wol-
verines have provided the sole
serious competition for the It-
mini during the past two sea-
sons.
Both in 1927 and 1928 thenOrange
and Blue and the Maize and Blue
led the western and eastern divi~
1 sions of the Conference respective-
ly, both times met in a post sea-
son match for the title, and both
times the Illini emerged victorious
mainly on their greater strength
in the lighter weights.1
In the mat finale last year
in the field house the Suckers
took the first three bouts, and
though the Michigan wrestlers
evened the count at nine points
apiece, Webster's victory in the
heavyweight encounter gave Il-
linois another title to add to
its string.
This year is no exception; again
the Illini boast a formidable group

of lighter weight men. In the 118
pound bout Joe Sapora will again
represent the Orange and Blue:.
The Sucker matman defeated Hew-
itt last year in the dual meet hereI
and lost his only bout of the sea-
son to the Wolverine Olympic
finalist in the finale of the Con-
ference 115 pound tournament.
On the contrary, Michigan's
weakest event so far has been
this bout, the WolVerine 115
pounders, McGilliard and Ru-
bin, having chalked pup ony
two wins ift Michigan's seven
bouts.
Although Sapora has been but
most of the season with a leg in-
jury, he returned to the Illinois
lineup in time to-' hand Winning
of Chicago, his single beating of
the year.E
In the 125 poand class the
Ilini have another veteran,
Minot, to pit against Bud Hew-
itt Michigan's Olympic star, in
'what:.should prove one of the
feature bouts of the meet.
Minot, wrestling in the 138
pound class, has been mnde-
feated this year, but will come
down to the 128 pound weight
to meet Hewitt. The Illini
matman has won a1 but one of
his bouts by falls anid his im-
pressive record includes the
pinning of Brill, West Virginia's
star veteran, in two minutes
of wrestling.1
Hewitt, who reached the finals
of the Olympic tournament, sus-
tained his lone defeat of the sea-
son in an early season bout when
recovering from the effects of
pneumonia, and since this loss hasi
had little difficulty in outelassing
all rivals.

sitop rung of the race for western
Conference basketball honors by
dropping Wisconsin Monday night,
"Stretch" Murphy, Purdue's"six
foot, six inch center, staged a little1
celebration all his own at Colum-
bus to set a new Big Ten individual
scoring mark as Purdue closed her;
iseason by winning over Ohiol
State, 45-34, i Uie final gamie on
the Lafayette, card.
The elongated Boilermaker inf
breaking the mark of 133 set by
I Johnny Miner, Ohio's great sharp-
shooter in 1925, found the meshes
for eight field goals and six free
throws to bring his season's total
to 143 points.
Glen Harmeson, Purdue forward,
fed Murphy the ball continually,
and although closely watched by
the B u c k e y e defense men,{
"Stretch" broke away for easyl
shots which sent the Boilermakers1
into a 20-9 lead- at half time and
definitely thwarted any attempts
of the Columbus cagers to make_
things interesting. While Murphy
was vaulting into a new confer-
ence record his teammate Cum-
mins snagged secondary honors, by
scoring five goals and a foul toss.
Led by Branch McCracken, high
scoring center, Indiana closed a
disastrous campaign by negotiat-
ing a 35-30 win over Iowa. Mc-
Cracken scored eight field goals
and four free throws in a game
which was marked by many thril-
ling moments. The lead changedl
hands constantly during most of
( the game until the last minute of
play.
Illinois closed its basketball sea-
son with a 32-27 win over Minne-
sota, chronic cellar champions.

Warren Breaks Mark
In a meet which was not; decided
until the final event, Northwestern
accounted for a win over Purdue.-
Coming to the half mile run, the
Boilermakers needed a first and
second to win the meet, but Cap-
tain Gorby of the Purple placed
second and- another- Northwestern'
man took third to blast the Pur-
due hopes. Tom Warner was able
to turn in a new pole vault record
in this meet, and will have to be
reckoned with when the vaulters
are called at Iowa for the big in-
door meet.
At the same time Ohio State was
turning back the determined
Hoosier thinclads to the tune of'
40 1-2-24 1-2. The Buckeyes dis-
played a well balanced squad with
great power in the dashes and
hurdles, although the other track
and weight events show no weak-
nesses.
EDWARD G. GOETZ
After a valiant attempt at re-
covery, Edward G. Goetz, '29E, of
Buffalo, died at the University hos-
pital, last Friday evening at 6
o'clock. A roommate left yesterday,
with the body to attend the fu-
ieral in Buffalo.
Goetz was a member of the track
team last year, running the mile
and the half mile and occasionally
entering the cross-country run.
Last summer he was badly in-
jured in an automobile accident
and had trouble with his back all
this year as a result. Just before
Christmas vacation he was taken
ill with the flu and was in bed
from then until his death which
resulted from malarian tuber-
culosis.
