Schmieler Takes Scoring Honors
With Two Firsts; Kennedy
By J. Cullen Kennedy
Michigan State's swimmers bow-
ed before a superior Wolverine
squad last night inthe Intramural
pool by a score of 62-13. The pow-
erful Michigan natators swamped
the Spartans by carrying off first
and second honors in every event,
with no Wolverine finishing behind
a State swimmer.
Schmieler was the high point-
getter for the Matt Mann coached
team, winning a pair of firsts, to
give him a total of 10 points for the
meet. Kennedy, another Wolverine
sophomore, grabbed off a first in
the 220 free style swim as well as
swimming in the lead off position
on the 400 yard relay team.
Craig, veteran S p a r t a n back
stroker and sprinter, was the only
State man who approached the
Wolverine class. Craig swam a good
race in the 150 yard back stroke,
but had to be satisfied with a third,
being beaten by Schmieler and
Captain Valentine of the Michigan
team. The Spartan veteran also
took part in the 400 yard and med-
The fast swimming quartet of
Kennedy, Marcus, Smith; a n d
Klintworth walked away with the
400 yard relay event, winning by
three lengths of the pool in a time
of 3:42 3-5 seconds. Clark, Craig,
Tate, and Schauble composed the
Spartan team. Schauble picking up
a few yards in the final lap, but

Schmiler's time of 2:35 1-5 in
the 200 yard breast stroke race was
one of the outstanding features o
the meet. Miller finished four yards
behind him and Snyder, of Michi-
gan State, finished third.
Fenske Wins Sprint.
The most thrilling race of the
meet came in the 50 yard free style
with four men fighting for posi-
tions throughout the sprint. Fenske
and Marcus took the honors for
Michiganby nosing out Schauble
of State. The time for the 50 yards
was 25 1-5.
The fancy diving honors went to
Raike, Wolverine veteran, wno gave
a fine exhibition on the low board

Site for Title Bout
Plans are still up in the air as
to the scene of the next heavy-
weight title bout between Max
Schmeling and Young Stribling
next July. Proposed ;sites for the
bout include Chicago, Detroit,
Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Jer-
sey City, with a few other cities
having slightly smaller chances
for getting the bout.
Considerable difficulty has de-
veloped over holding the bout in
Chicago, while Detroit does not
have a large enough stadium.
Jersey City's stadium will hardly
be done by the time proposed.
Cleveland will have its new
stands finished by July, while
Philadelphia has the old Sesqui-
Centennial arena to offer.

Two Boston Sluggers
Sign for 1931 Season
Two outfielders upon whom the
Bostan Braves are counting very
heavily in their 1931 campaign
have finally come to terms with
the management and have re-
turned their signed contracts to
the club. The two gardeners,
Wally Berger and Wesley Schul-
merich, are expected to provide
most of the guns for the Braves'
offensive during the season.
Berger last season was the sur-
prise of the National League
among the 1930 rookie crop.
Hailed as a slugger on the Pacific
Coast League, he came east to
prove that the stories of his
prowess were no myth, and
slugged out a large number of
circuit clouts. Schulmerich is a
newcomer to the team, having
been secured by the Braves from
the Pacific Coast League during

AS CUB MANAGER
'The Rajah' Cracks Whip in First
Practice of 1931 Campaign.
(By Associated P ress)
AVALON, Cal., Feb. 18. - Rogers
Hornby's managership of the Chi-
cago Cubs started formally and in-
formally today as he cracked thel
whip in the first spring practice of
the 1931 campaign.
One workout daily, starting at 11t
a. in., and lasting "until,"--was the
Rajah's training plan. He has ar-
ranged for soccer games during
each training session, to strengthen
the legs and aid the wind.

WISCONSl'N TON IGHT
Victory Over Leaders Would Put
Varsity on Top in Big
Ten Title Scramble.
Michigan's chances for a second
consecutive hockey championship
will be at stake tonight when the
Wolverine sextet crosses sticks with
a fighting group of Wisconsin puck-
men at 7:30 o'clock at the Coliseum,
in the first of a two-game series.
The second game will be played
here Saturday night following the
Indiana basketball game.
Badgers Have Slipped.
While the Maize and Blue stick
handlers started the Conference
season slowly by dropping two
straight games to the Badgers at
Madison, Coach Eddie Lowrey's men
have since given the Minnesota
team two straight defeats and now
have a .500 rating. The Badgers,
on the other hand, starting the
year with a dual victory over Mich-
igan and a single win over Minne-
sota, have hit the skids and have
dropped two games to the Gophers.
That leaves Wisconsin only a half
game in front of the Wolverines,
and should Michigan win tonight's
battle it will go into first place.
Despite the fact that Michigan
has already been stopped twice by
Coach Carlson's Badgers, the home
team rates as the favorites tonight.
The Coliseum ice is much more to
the liking of the Wolverine team
than it is to Wisconsin, and the
hard skating Reid and Crossman
should be able to push the puck
past Wisconsin's sensational goalie,
Chick Frisch, enough times to give
the Maize and Blue the victory.
Sindles To Be Out.
Each of the contesting teams
has lost one man through ineligi-
bility, while the Wolverines have
also had the misfortune of losing
Tommy Courtis through gradua-
tion. Harold Sindles, spare forward,
will be absent from the Varsity

Michigan will lose the maximum
of 360 points because they will be
unable to enter three men in each
division. However, if the two en-
tries place first and second, which
is highly improbable as this is the
first year of gymnastic competition,
Michigan may suffer as little as 150
points. The two entries will be
matched against three of the op-
position in each meet.
The weakened team will journey
to Indiana for the Saturday meet.
