Buckeyes Have Lost Three Of Their
First Four Meets; Two To
Big Ten Opponents
In the best of condition and rea-
sonably confident of a victory, the
Wolverine wrestling team polished
off a few tricks yesterday is prep-
aration for the match with the Ohio
State grapplers in the Field House
It is also the first time they will
have, seen Ed George, who reached
the finals in the Olympic games
last summer, in action with the
Michigan squad this season. For
some reason George had no oppo-
nent in the Northwestern meet and
won his event in the Purdue meet
by a large time margin.
Fairall Also Strong
In this meet he will have as his
opponent, Fairall who has been cut-
ting quite a swath in Conference.
circles this season himself. So far,
he has disposed of three of his men;
by pinning them to the mat and
defeated one by the time decision
Bob Hewitt, the other member of
the Michigan squad who went
across with the Olympic team, will
take his corner against Vercoe, the
Buckeye 125 pounder. Vercoe is
coming into match with plenty of
glory and Hewitt, in view of the
fact that he has almost, but not'
quite, fully recovered his former
strength after an attack of pneu-
monia early in the year, may have
trouble with the Buckeye.
Kelly Is Injured
Two other men who will wrestle
here for the first time this season
are Red Elliot, who won his other
two starts this year, and Benz, who
makes his first appearance as a
Varsity matman against Hall, Buck-
eye 145 pounder. Kelley, who has
been holding down the 145 pound
berth on the Varsity, is suffering
from several bruises and, as an act
of wisdom ,Coach Keen is saving
him for Indiana next week.
Captain Warren shows no ill ef-
fects from his defeat at Purdue last
week and is ready for Hudak, the
Buckeye representative in the 155
pound division. In the 175 pound
weight Hager will return to the
Varsity to meet Conn, the powerful
Ohio State wrestler in this weight.

Favorites Come Through First
Round Easily, But Face Dan-
gerous Foes Next Monday
Round two of the Indoor Tennisf
Tournament, being held at the In-I
tramural gym is scheduled to get;
under way next Monday. This is the
first time that such a tournament
has been held and that consider-I
able interest was aroused by it,
has been shown by the fact that
there were 73 entries in the firstI
round. Of this number 39 remain
to contest Monday for the right4
to enter round three.
Most prominent of those who
survived the first round are, Spen-
cer, state singles champion; Beal,
winner of the all campus tourna-
ment last fall, and Bacon, one of
last year's numeral winners. That
these men will not have their own
way in the tournament, however,
is easily seen when a list of the
men they have to meet is 'scanned.
Prominent among their opponents
are Fishkin, 1928, New York Met-
ropolitan champion; Brace, who
reached the quarter finals in the
National Junior Tournament last
summer; Reindell, a promising,
freshman; Robin Clark, Robert-J
Clark, Hammer, and Dusenberry,
a member of last year's freshman
It is not to be expected that
any of these favorites will meet
disaster in round two with thie
possible exception of Fishkin, who
is called upon to meet a good play-
er in Pendell. The Spencer-Fris-
inger, Bacon-Angel, Beal-Fields
matches are also of considerable
importance, in that they deal with
three of the players who are ex-
pected to reach the semi-finals.
The Inter-Class Handball Tour-
nament will get under way next'
week with 37 teams scheduled to
play starting Monday. Each team
is composed of four men; two
of whom play singles' and two
This is the first time that inter-
class handball has been attempted
and the response that has resulted
assures its success.
The outstanding teams appear
to be the following: Junior Laws,
Frosh Physical Eds., Junior Medics,
Junior Dents., , Sophomore Lits.,
Senior Physical Eds., Senior Laws,
and Senior Engineers.

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 21-Emerg-
ing from the mad scramble of theF
Western Conference cage race to
land the league at the three quar-
ters mark, the Wisconsin team
must still dispose of four oppo-
nents to claim an undisputed
championship. Purdue, Michigan,
Northwestern and Chicago clog the
path which may lead to a title
for the Meanwell boys.
Badgers Get Breaks
The breaks were with the Badg-
ers on Monday night when Mich-
igan was toppled by Ruby's erratic
Illini, and Iowa, theretofore very
much in the running, suffered a
decisive defeat at the hands of the
Gophers, Purdue's victory over
their ancient Hoosier rivals did not
mean much as Wisconsin will have
their chance to trim the Boiler-
makers in a return game at Madi-
son next Monday.
The rangy Cardinal quintette
was convincing in its win over
Northwestern, the same aggrega-
tion that had romped through a
half *dozen tilts without defeat,
numbering among its victims Mich-
igan, Purdue and Notre Dame.
Wisconsin was so convincing that
none could deny that this year
"Doc" Meanwell has a true title,
contender, heralded earlier as a
dark horse team.

First Telegraphic Meet of Season
To Be Run Off This After-
noon and Saturday
Coach Hoyt's freshman track
team will engage in its first com-
petition of the year' when the
Wolverines compete against the
Minnesota yearlings this after-
noon and Saturday in a tele-
graphic meet. The Michigan times
will be determined in trials in the
field house.
Although the freshman squad.is
the smallest in Tecent years, it
contains several promising candi-
datesin most events according to
Coach Hoyt. As yet no real time
trials have been held, and the
exact calibre of most of the track-
men is uncertain, but the Gopher
meet is expected to test the abil-
ity of the yearlings.
Good Sprinter Appears
In Campbell Coach Hoyt has a
sprinter who ranks on equal terms
with any the Varsity has to offer,
while he has a capable running
mate in Davis, who has shown
steady improvement. The quarter
milers appear the one weak spot
on the team, Kiminsky, Chase, and
Harbison, all being ranked as no
better than average performers.
The yearling strength lies in the
longer events. McLaughlin, War-
den, and Gafell are the best of a
fine crop of half milers, while Wolf
and Fitzgibbons will take care of
the mile and two mile assign-
ments. Both of the latter appear
as good as any freshman two mil-
ers cf recent years.
Black, Johnson and MacHose are
three high jumpers who can be
depended on to better six feet.

ers invade Patton gym on Satur-
day evening. The Wildcats will
have profited by their mistakes of
omission and commission, and in
addition are known to be a great'
club on their home floor. Coach
Meanwell is waging a battle this
week against the dreaded overcon-
