Former Football Men, Yearlings
and Members of Varsity k
Squad to Compete.
About eighty wrestlers will begin
competition for the All-Campus
championship in eight weights at 4
o'clock this afternoon in the wrest-
ling room of the Intramural Build-
ing, Coach Cliff Keen announced
yesterday. Every wrestler on the
campus with the exception of those
who have won major letters on the
mat are eligible to compete in this
tournament and Coach Keen has
an entry list composed of 35 mem-
bers from the yearling squad, all
the members of the Varsity except
four, and several matmen who have
shown well in the interfraternity
and independent meets.
The yearling mat squad is ex-
.; ceptionally strong this year and
gave the Varsity some stiff compe-
tition in a meet held between the
two squads recently, although two
of the first year men who account-
ed for wins in that meet will not1
be able to enter the bouts today.
Both Wyokuski in the 165 pound
class and Malewitz at 115 pounds
received injuries when going
against the Varsity and are not
entered in the all-Campus meet.n1
115 {glass Close. '
In the absence of Malewitz, the
115 pound title seems to be a toss-)
up between Cortez, Texiera, Kiri-
mura, and Aldinger. Of these Kiri-
mura, State A.A.U. champion and1
Aldinger seem to hold the advant-
age, although the other men will
furnish them with plenty of oppo-
Swanston in the 125 pound class
should have an edge over Digby,
Halliday, and Otto, by virtue of his
superior experience as a member
of the Varsity squad last year. Only
Lawrence and Woorard, an A.M.A
winner last year have shown any-
thing so far this season which mer-
its them an edge over the field in
the 135 division, although the class
is large and as a whole of danger-,
ous caliber.
Benz is Favored.
Benz, another A.M.A. winner last ;
year, and state A.A.U. title-holder
appears to hold thedge in the 145,
pound class, although indications
are that he will be hard pressed1
by Shankland and Heim. Much the
same situation remains in the 155,
weight with Orvill Parker and Reif
holding the limelight in the pre-
dictions after the preliminary bouts
are run off.
Another Varsity aspirant and
A.M.A. winner from last year is
favored in the 165 division, where1

most promising matmen is expect- ;

by Coach Keen, for they are said

Uleveland and Buttalo
in Tie for Hockey Lead
Two teams, deadlocked for first
place, are holding a fierce strug-
gle for the leadership of the Inter-
national Hockey league, slightly
ahead of their two closest oppon-
ents, Detroit and Windsor. Buffalo
and Cleveland are in a tie for the
circuit lead at the present time,
with Cleveland holding a slight
edge over the :Bisons.
Starting with a completely new'
club at the beginning of the sea-
son, Harry "Happy" Holmes, mana-
ger of the Indians, has built up ofie
of the strongest clubs in the cir-
cuit. After losing their first game I
to London, they have either won or
tied every opponent since that
date. Included among their victor-
ies are wins over Detroit and Buf-
falo, its two closest competitors,
while it has yet to taste defeat at
their hands.
Led by a great forward wall com-
posed of Alec Gray, center and cap-
tain, Ken Doraty, who rated sec-
ond to Ebie Goodfellow amoug the
scoring leaders last year, and Mike
Brophy, a rapidly developing star,
the Indians boast one of the best
offensive clubs in the league. Alfie
Moore, at goal, has astounded ev-
eryone with his fine play before
the nets.
