and two weeks of drill before meet-
ing the Michigan State team at
Spartans First Victims
At Lansing the Wolves register-I
ed their first victory of the sea-
son by nosing out the Spartans in
one of the closest matches of the
year. After changing positions for
the lead several times Michigan!
gained a two point advantage and
never were headed until the last1
1 event which gave them a 6 to 8 vic-
The next scalp tucked under the
belt of the Maize and Blue team
was that of the Ohio State fencers
who came here for the defeat.
Constant drilling under the care-I
ful tutelage of Coach Johnstone#
began to show results in this meet
and the Wolverines won ten of the
seventeen bouts.
Wiggers Takes Epee Titpe
Following this match three of'
the Maize and Blue fencers enter-
ed the Conference bouts to annex
second honors for Michigan in the
Big Ten and one individual Big
Ten championship. Wiggers went
through the entire field of the Con-
ference epee artists to capture the
championship in this event. The'
points won in this event plus one
more won by Gordon in the sabre
bouts gave the Wolves second place
in the meet.
Gordon tied for third place with
two others from Chicago and Ohiol
State in the sabre events while
Captain Lazar won fourth place in
the foils which entitled him to no
points because of ties in first, sec-I
ond, and third places.I
In the last match of the season
against Wisconsin the Wolverine
fencers chalked up a 6 to 8 victory
with only ordinary trouble. The
Badgers did not possess a well
enough balanced squad to com-
pensate for the team, as well as
individual, strength of the Wolves.1

First Outdoor Drill May Be held
For Baseball Squad Before
Present Week Ends
With the prospect of holding the
first outdoor diamond practice of
the season 'before the end of the
week if weather conditions are
favorable, the varsity baseball
squad continued its daily routine
batting practice sessions und-r the
handicap of 'a deep gloom and low
visibility conditions in the field
The cloudy weather made the
ball hard to locate against the dark
background ~'of the stands, but
most of the hitters continued to
show steady improvement in find-
ing Coach Blott's deliveries for,
solid smacks. Although no new
home run possibilities have devel-
oped so far, Coach Fisher appears
well satisfied with the showing ofI
the new men in' the uncertain light
of the field house.
Veterans Can hit
The backbone of this year's hit-
ting strength will probably come
from the veterans, according to
Coach Fisher. Nebelung, Corriden,
and Weintraub are all expected to
show improvement at the bat in
this year's campaign, and' will
make bids for the cleanup posi-
tions left vacant by the gradua-
tion of Lange and Oosterbaan.
As no infielding practice will be
held indoors, the pitchers are re-
ceiving most of the attention, while
the fielders are confining their ac-
tivities to batting practice and
pepper games.
Hurlers Show Promise
Several new moundsmen have
shown increased promise in the last
few workouts. Montague, one of}
the tallest men on the squad, Mar-I
tin, and Holzman, three juniors,
have been putting more stuff on
the ball and are ranked as likely
candidates for the reserve hurler
Compton and Kiegler, the two
outstancigg pitchers of last year's
freshman'"team, are also showing
the ral t' of constant work.
Compton appeared to be able to
bother %the 4928 varsity as much

Matmen Out For
National Crown

Wolverine Swimmers Will Defend
Collegiate Title At Meet c
In St. Louist
Having annexed their third
straight Conference championship,
Coach Matt Mann's Varsity swim-
mers are now busy getting in shapel
for the national collegiate meet'
scheduled for March 29 and 30 atl
Washington university, St. Louis.
The Wolverines will also be de-
fending the title there that they
won, last year at Philadelphia.
In winning the Conference titlej
Michigan demonstrated its usually
good team balance by taking three
first places, four seconds, four"
thirds, and three fourths. North-
western accumulated its 34 points
chiefly through five first places
that netted 28 points. The Wild-1
cats also gathered one second, one
,third, and one fourth.1
Ault Wins 440
Gar Ault continued the Michigan
tradition of winning the 440 yardt
free style by successfully defending
the title which he annexed last
year at Minneapolis. Buck Sam-
son won the quarter mile in 1926
and 1927, so Ault has proved a!
worthy successor to the former
Wolverine star.
Winning the 40 yard sprint was
especially gratifying to Bob Walk-I
er, who also won the event last I
year but was disqualified for swim-I
wing.out of his lane. George Hub--E
bell joined Wallie Colbath among
the dethroned champions. The fast
pace set by Hinch and Marsh
proved too much. for the WolverineI
back stroke ace, who took third.E
Heinie Groh, diminutive Illinois
captain, made it two out of three
against Colbath in the fancy div-
ing. Groh won the title in 1927
but placed third behind Colbath
last year.
Free Style Relay Won Again
Al Schwartz again captured the
220 yard championship and also

Gaining five firsts and four sec-
onds Phi Kappa Psi easily annexed
the Inter-fraternity swimming
championship last night at the In-
tramural pool with a total of 47
points. Theta Chi was second with
24 points while Alpha Kappa
Lambda was third with 13. Last
year's championship also was won
by Phi Kappa Psi.I
Patton of Phi Kappa Psi took
the hundred yard free style while
his teammate, Kirn, took the fifty.
Fossum of Theta Chi won the 2001
free style and Crego of Theta Chi
was first in the fifty yard back-
stroke. The fifty yard breast strokei
was won by Vose of. Phi Kappa
Psi. Both the relays were taken
by Phi Kappa Psi.
