Varsity wrestling is scheduled 'to
begin next Monday when the first
practice of the 1928-29 squad will
be held in the new Intramural
building under the tutelage of
Theron Donahoe, one of the ster-
ling performers on last year's team.
A week from Wednesday all the
candidates will meet with Coach
Keen who will launch th e squad on
its training program.
While the vacancies left by the
loss of Donahoe, Sauer, and Watson
of the 1927-28 team will be hard
to fill the number and caliber of
the men who are expected to report
next week seems to point towards
a favorable season. Another man
who will not be back this year is
Thomas, finalist in the N. A. A. U.
meet last year,
As a nucleus about which to
build the team, Coach Keen will
have Captain Warren and Bob
Hewitt, varsity veterans. From
among the hundred candidates
which will start practice Monday;
there appears to be enough quanti-
ty and quality to form a formidable
team. Coach Keen will not take'
active charge of the squad until
after the football season.

Over forty candidates for the
sophomore football team reported
to Coach Keen yesterday after-
noon and began practice with a
few drills in fundamentals and
some plays executed in a "touch"
football scrimmage.
Most of the players were busy
getting their uniforms from th
stock room bit about twenty-five
men reported on the field and
started regular practice. Two teams
were picked and sent through a
number of plays to drill them in
both offense and defense practice.
The sophomore team is being or-
ganized to give sophomores and in-
I eligibles an opportunity to play
football and possibly to develop in-
to material for future varsity
teams. Practice will be held every
night and a number of games are
to be played against the freshmen
team and the physical eds.
While the whole number of can-
didates have not yet reported in
uniform, Coach Keen believes that
enough of the good men from last
I year's freshmen squad, the present
cut list of the B team, and the
ineligibles will be on the squad to
warrant hopes for a strong team..


Ten Veterans Are Among Aspirants
For Coach Matt Mann's
Aquatic Squad
With the new natatorium in the
Intramural building still under
construction, Coach Matt Mann's
Varsity swimmers are getting into
condition in the Union' pool. Ten
lettermen are numbered among the
candidates for the aquatic team,
as only five men were lost through
graduation, leaving a veteran nu-,
cleus for 1929.
As a means of rounding them
into shape, the swimming candi-
dates will begin running at the
field house next Monday for a pe-
riod of two .weeks. Coach Mann
has employed this method of loos-
sening up sore muscles for the past
two seasons with success, alternat-
ing light workouts in the pool with
the track work.
The Varsity squad now numbers
12 men, the rest of the candidates
making up a second string team.
Th'e free stylers include Bob Walk-

er, AI' Seager, Garnet Ault, Frank
Walaitis, Ernest Reif, and Tom
Watson, all letter winners frOTh 'it
year. In addition Fell Hosmer, a
good prospect on the 1930 fresh-
man team, is expected to extend
the veterans.
Capt. Dick Spindle and George
Hubbell, both former Big Ten
champions, will take care of the
back stroke. They will be abiy
assisted by Clarence Boldt, a star
freshman of last year.
Of the breast strokers, Jud
Thompson, sophomore surprise of
1928 and Dick Mertz, will probably
be assigned the duty of garnering
points for Michigan. The versatile.
Walaitis and Meyer Rosenberg, vet-
erans of last season, are the most
promising performers in the fancy
Bob Darnall, captain and inter-
collegiate 100-yard champion last
year, was the principal loss through
graduation, also Bob Wagner, star
breast ,stroker, Clarence Batter,
diver, Bob Halstead, back and.
breast stroker and Clarence horn

Otto Pommerening
Who is playing his second year as
a regular tackle. Pommerening did
big things last year and from early,
season appearances, can be counted
on to furnish trouble for the oppos-
ing ba:cks again this season.

Indiana, one of the two Big Ten
teams to see action over the week-
end, showed the results of the
careful coaching that Pat Page has
been giving his men Wabash fur-
nished the opposition for the
Hoosiers and although they h ,d
their usually strong team, they
were beaten, 14-0. The Indiana of-
fense was working smoothly and
the defense was as strong as could
be expected this time of the year.
Coach Page is developing his team
slowly this year, but the system is
sound as was demonstrated Satur-
day. Oklahoma of the Missouri
Conference, will line up against In-
diana this week.
Chicago, the other team which
played a game last Saturday, was
the victim of a servere upset, bow-
ing to South Carolina by a' 6-0
score. The Southerners flashed a
better attack and won, but this
superiority was the result of a
longer practice period as they have
been in uniform much longer than
the Conference schools. The Chi-
cago line had trouble in keeping
the Carolina linesmen 'from break-
ing through and smothering their
fast backs. Coach Stagg started
yesterday afternoon to mold a line
that would hold. The Chicago
backfield as well will come in for
its share of the revamping as most,
