cause a lot of worry to the leaders
in the title race this year.
Michigan had to overcome an
early lead by a whirlwind finish to{
snatch' the game from Pennsyl-!
vania, as the eastern team held a
13-12 advantage at the end of the
first period. However, the secondl
half was all Michigan, and the i
wolverines had piled up their 13-
point advantage by the time the
whistle blew.
Gophers Lose To Drake
In the other Conference games'
played Saturday, Minnesota was the
only team to suffer a reverse,
Drake turned the tables on the
Gophers by a score of 32-21 to ac-
count for the second defeat that the
Minnesota team has absorbed in
its practice tilts this year.
Behind doors locked because of'
the epidemic of the flu which is
sweeping the midway campus, Chi-
cago eked out a 39-36 win from
North Dakota in a long practice
session. At the same time Illinois
had little trouble in smothering
Lombard under a score of 44-22.i
The Illini looked good in this,
game, and their prospects for a
winning team appear somewhat !
Purdue showed much of its old-I
time form in defeating Washing-1
ton university at St. Louis, 38-21. 1
This victory means much to the
Boilermakers, inasmuch as the St.I
Louis team defeated Indiana, Pur-1
due's' old rival, the week previous.

Seventy-two Men Signify Intention
Of Competing For All-Campus
Wrestling Crowns
Seventy-two. men had late last
night signified their intention of
entering the all-university wrest-
ling meet which will begin this aft-
ernoon at 4 o'clock in the Intra-
mural building. This meet is be-
ing sponsored by the Athletic As-
soeciation and will be supervised by
Varsity Coach Clif Keen.
Coach Keen stated that he had
expected more to enter, but that
the serious epidemic of the flu
which has been sweeping the cam-
pus has stricken' many of the mat-
men, and they will not be able to
compete. The largest number of
men have signed up for the 135
pound class where 18 aspirants
have appeared to contest for the
Next in the number of entrants
is the 145 pound division in which
1.4 wrestlers have signed up. Of the
other weights, 6 have appeared in
the heavyweight class, 5 in the 1'15
pound class, and 6 in the 165 dIvi-
sion. The lighter weights have a
larger entry list, as many men who
have not had much experience
have gone in them.
Five pounds overweight was al-
lowed in the weighing-in yesterday
afternoon and no further weights
will be required. Coach Keen an-
nounced that the wrestling will
take place from 4 till 6 this after-
neon and that no evening matches
are scheduled. If it is possible to
do so, the bouts up to the semi-
finals will be run off today and
then the tournament can be fin-
ished on Wednesday, otherwise it
will extend over to Thursday.
The preliminary bouts will be
five minute matches, while the
finals will extend over eight min-'
utes. The winners in the various
divisions wil receive gold medals
from the Athletic Association, and
since most of the members- of the
present Varsity squad are entered
they and the men from the "B"
team are expected to win the titles,
although some men from the year-
lig 'squad may furnish stiff op-

Worked Under Leader
When Ed Leader went to Yale(
from Washington in 1923 he tooki
Mike Murphy with him to super-
vise the freshmen. Murphy has
been in charge of the yearling oars- I
men ever since and has established
a great record. Under his guidance,
the Yale yearlings have competed
in 15 races against Eastern inter-
collegiate boats, registering 11 vic-;
tories in the past five years.
Murphy will bring to WisconsinI
a new technique in rowing. He.
teaches the Leader stroke, and in-
cidentally, will be the youngest
varsity crew coach in the country.
