against Schlicher, present Westernt
Conference sabre champion, Ham-
mer slashed his way to a five to
three victory, giving the Wolverine
fencers a hard fought 9 to 8 deci-
sion over the title holding Illini
yesterday afternoon in the Intri-
mural gymnasium.
In achieving this upset the Mich-
igan swordsmen showed a marked
improvement over their perform-
ance against the Michigan State
team earlier in the season and
proved to be superior to the Illinois
fencers in both the foils and sabre
events although forced to drop
three of the four bouts in the epee.
Stolpman, Gordon Star.
Captain Stolpman in the foils
and Gordon in the sabre starred
for the Wolverines. Each of these
men won all of their bouts, Stolp-
man taking three in the foils and
Gordon two in the sabre against,
the strongest lineup in the Confer-
ence including the champions in
both of these weapons.
Captain Haier, conference foils
ehampion, was 'the outstanding
fencer for the Indians with his two
shutout victories in this event
against Friedman and Lovell. In
the opening bout of -the meet, the
two captains met with the result
that the Illinois leader was forced
to bow to defeat for the first time
in two seasons. ' The only other
Indian to win both of his bouts was
Seibert who defeated both Dosett
and Koon in the epee.
Wolves Get Early Lead.
Michigan won five of the nine
bouts in the foils to give it a one
point lead early in the meet. Fried-
man and Lovell, a newcomer on the
Wolverine squad, won their first
bouts against Seibert and Fried-
berg respectively but each lost his
other 'two bouts.
. In the epee in which the Wolver-
ines prior to the meet presumedly
had the best chance, Illinois won
three of the four bouts. Dowsett
was the only Michigan fencer to
wih in this event, taking a quick 2
to 0 bout from Wheeler. Koon lost
to both Seibert and Wheeler while1
Dowsett dropped his second bout to

Browns, Lou, Lew, and Lu.
Lou, New York's contribution tol
the trio of first sackers, is one of
the most dangerous batters in the
circuit. Although last seiason hi
mark fell below that of his usual
'standard, his hits were of the long
variety. The distance of his hits,
and the opportune times at which.
he came through with them, gave
Lou a record of 126 runs batted
across the plate, only Sammons,
Ruth, and Alexander topping him
in this repect. Gehrig leads both
Fonseca and Blue in runs batted
in, the Cleveland star sending 103.
teammates across the plate, and
the Brown first baseman batting in
only 61 runs.
All Good Fielders.,
As far as fielding goes, the trio
are practically on the same level.
Fonseca, Lew, led in percentage
points, but by such a little margin
that it scarcely made any differ-
ence. His mark was .995, compared
to tie .994 at which Lou and Lu
were deadlocked.
Lew, Cleveland's first baseman,
led the American league in batting,
beating out Al Simmons of the'
Philadelphia Athletics by a n.rrow
margin. While his hits were not
for as long distances as those of
New York's Lou, there were more
of them and they were just as.
timely. He was near the front in
the manufacture of doubles and'
triples, but fell off in the makibag
of circuit clouts.
Blue Slipping.
Lu, the Browns' entry, failed to
have as good a season as usual in

r ,ise their batting percentages in
7 1.30.

ture of the state A. A. U. swiimming
1meet at the Detroit Y. M. C.A. on1
Friday night when he defeated Don
McClellan of the Detroit Yacht
club in the 100 yard breast stroke
open event. McClellan, a former
national collegiate champion, had
been unbeaten in state swimming
circles since 1921.
In acomp roishing this feat,
Schmieler swam the distance in
the fast time of 1:10 2-5 seconds
Bob Goldsmith, Michigan Varsity
star, also finished ahead of Mc-
Clellan to take second place, rele-
gating the Yacht club ace to third
position. Schmieler led all the
way, while Goldsmith passed Mc-
Clellan on the last length.

Slarge share of the honors in the
tank meet, winning four events, in-
cluding two state titles. The Wol-
verines made a clean sweep of the:
A. A. U. senior 50 yard champion-
ship. Bob Walker, Maize and Blue
star, captured first place followed'
closely by his teammates, Frank
Walaitis and Fel Hosmer. Walker's
time was :24 3-5 seconds.
First honors in the 100 yard jun-
ior free style title race went to
Ivan Smith, grid player who has I
.developed into a fast sprinter. Mar-
cus, a Mi'chigan freshman, took
third place.' Smith covered the
century in :58.1 seconds. Michi-

event. He is entering his second
year of intercollegiate competition.
Only six years ago, a scrawny
adolescent who , had grown too
fast, Gordon was sickly and car-
ried only 115 pounds on his six-
foot frame. His father, believing
that he might build up, compelled
him to compete in athleties.

Gordon high jumped 'and low'

reputation as a broad jumper, his
|sole attempt in high school net-
Iting barely 22 feet.
'concentration upon the event
during his freshman year, how-
ever, resulted in consi'stent leaps
over 24 feet, and membership on
the American Olympic team of
11928. At, the international games,
he finished seventh, with a bad
muscle holding his performance
about a foot. short of his best dis-
tance.
With the impetus of his power-
ful run and a tremendous push 'on
the take-off board, Gordon's
"springy" legs propelled 'hiln to the
Western Conference, National Col-
legiate, and National A. A. U.
championships last season. His
best leap was 24 feet, 81/ inches,
and in four of his six'efforts he us-
ually exceeded the 24-foot mark..

Coach Kizer Faces Proposition
of Rebuilding Championship
Grid Combination.
WILL MISS ALL-STARS
(Special to The Daily)
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 22.--
Realizing that he faces a big task
in attempting to find men to fill'
the shoes that will be left by the
graduation of such stars as "Red"
Sleight and "Pest" Welch, All-
Americans; Glen Harmeson, All-
Western halfback, and Bill Woerner
and Bill Mackle, regular ends, No-
ble Kizer, Purdue's energetic new
head coach, 'has already started,
plans for thedBig Ten champions'
spring grid drill that will start
early-in March.
I The Purdue mentor, assisted by
l Earl Martineau and Mal Elward,
intends to spend a great part of
the spring drill with new pros-
pects and developing reserves that
will enable the Boilermakers to
capably defend their champion-
ship when the season opens next
fall -against Baylor University, one
of the title favorites of the South-
west conference.
Middle Trio Back.
While the"Boilermakers retain all
of their center and guard candi-
dates from the 1929 championship
squad aldAg with George VanBib-
ber, ,a great tackle, as the nucleus
for 'the line, developing wingmen
and tackle strength will present a
real problem.
Two of the rivets from the fa-
mous "Four Riveters" backfield-
Alex Yunevich, fullback, and John
White, quarterback-will also be
availaable, but it remains to be seen
whether another quartet as effec-
tive can be welded together with
the addition of "talent that broke
into the limelight last season.
New Coaching Staff.
Although the Boilermakers have
a reorganized coaching staff to
pick up the reins where Jimmy
Phelan left 'of, the present coach-
ing triumvirate has a familiar
smack and will be able to keep
things moving at the same pace.
All thre Purdue co'ach'es were big
factors fin the development of the
1929 title team, being in charge of
the personal instruction and build-
ing the component parts of the
eleven.
