Yisiting Team Threatens to Win

Period Last Night.
SHAW IS STAR SCORER
Coach Ray Courtright's Junior
Varsity basketball squad kept its
record clear for the season by win-
ning from Detroit City College last
night, 21 to 18. This was the fourth
game for the "B" team, all of which
have been victories, and the men
are anxious to continue in this win-

Daily Attendance at Michigan
Rink Over 200.
Attendance at the Coliseum has
not dropped off because of mild
winter weather, figures given out
of Harry Tillotson's office recently,
indicated. The average number of
skaters daily is more than 200.
Vacation provided no let up as
townspeople made up the differ-
ence in student attendance.
Michigan has the finest skating
rink maintained by any university
or college in the country, Mr. Til-
lotson stated. Princeton is the only
.other college to own an indoor
rink. All other colleges use pro-
fessional rinks for their hockey
teams. Michigan's rink is larger
and better equipped than Prince-
ton's and has a greater seating
capacity. The Tigers allow only the
hockey team to use the rink.
Illinois is contemplating the
building of a rink next year. This
will add the Illini to the partici-
pating Big Ten schools in hockey.
Chicago and Northwestern are ex-
pected to take advantage of the
professional facilities and enter
teams in the Conference race.

FOR TITL MATCH'
GEORGE TO DEFEND
TITLE AT DETROIT,
Ten Point Lead
Max to Meet Stribling
at Detroit or Jersey
(By Associatd Press)
NEW YORK, Jan. 13. -- Max
Schmeling, of Germany, will de-
fend his heavyweight title against
W. L. (Young) Stribling, of Macon,
Ga., next June and the winner will
face Primo Carnera, vast Italian
carpenter, in September, under
terms of a contract signed by the
interested parties late today.
The contract was signed on be-
half of Schmeling, Stribling, and
Carnera with the Madison Square
Garden Corporation, of Illinois.
Briefly, it calls for Stribling and
Schmeling to meet in June for the
Illinois corporation with the Hearst
milk fund as the beneficiary.
The winner is to battle Carnera
for the Illinois corporation alone.
A third verbal stipulation was that
the ultimate survivor of these two
matches would defend the title for
the milk fund alone in 1932.
Neither the exact date nor the
tite for the Stribling-Seimeling
bout was fixed but it was under-
stood the third week in June had
been decided upon and the site
would be Jersey City or Detroit.
PUCK COACH CUTS
Yearling Hockey Team Contains
Few Outstanding Players.
Coach Lowery of the freshman
hockey team announced his latest
cut in the squad reducing the team
from 50 candidates to 24. In two
weeks it will be further reduced to
14 men. , These men will be used
in scrimmage against the Varsity.
The squad as a whole looks good but
contains few outstanding men.
There are three fair prospects for
defense positions. These men are
excellent skaters and have a na-
tural aptitude for a defense berth.
For offensive men Coach Lowery
will look a long time for freshmen
of the same calibre as Reid and
Crossman of last year's freshmen.
Two more weeks will be neces-
sary for everyone to get their
chance to show. Although satisfied
with the original turnout, Coach
Lowery is of the opinion that the
squad will be of less worth to the
Varsity in scrimmages and will pro-
duce fewer men of Varsity timber
than last year's frosh team.

Coach Johnstone Not Satisfied
With Showing of Varsity
Despite the fact that his charges
handed the alumni team a 10-7
defeat Saturday in a pre-season
meet Coach James Johnstone was
not overly satisfied with the show-
ing his swordsmen made and plans
to work them hard this week for
their meeting with the Toledo
Y. M. C. A. Saturday, January 19,
The Toledo club is a newly or-
ganized one, and nothing is known
concerning the ability of their
fencers, but the Wolverine coach
is taking no chances on suffering
an unexpected loss and is preparing
the men for a hard meet. The two
teams will stage a return engage-I
men here February 16.
Coach Johnstone announced that
he will carry six men with him. for
the contest including Captain Gor-
don, Friedman, Lovell, DeStafano,
Powers, and Reichard. Captain
Gordon, Friedman, and Lovell will
compete in the foil event while the
Wolverine leader will also handle
the sabre along with DeStafano.
Powers and Reichard will represent
Michigan in the opec.
Considerable improvement will be
necessary before the opening Con-
ference meet January 31 with Ohio
State, and the men will be brought
along slowly until that date so that
they will be at the peak for the
regular season. Although they have
given a good account of themselves
so far they still lack the polish

Varsity - Freshman Combination
Will Face Professors
at 5 o'clock Today.
This afternoon at 5 o'clock a
picked team of Varsity-Freshman
swimmers are scheduled to meet
the Faculty in what promises to be
one of the splashiest water polo
contests on the entire year's sched-
ule. Doors to the Intiramural pool,
where the contest will be held, will
open at 2 p.m. and because of the
fact that admission will be free a
huge crowd is expected to be on
The faculty team has been prac-
ticing in secret and expect to sur-
prise the undergraduates with sev-
eral new strokes of their own in-
vention. The far-famed Michigan
educators have a squad of about 27
stalwart leviathans who are ready
and eager to pit their skill against
Matt Mann's natators. Chief among
these are Brier, Slawson, Wheeler,
Gordy, Guthrie, and Hall, all veter-
ans of previous similar contests.
Until a late hour last night Coach
Mann was undecided as to the per-
sonnel of his starting squad, but
definitely stated that at some time
or another during the contest he
expected all of his Varsity stars to
engage in the battle.
That the contest will be hard-
fought appears to be a certainty,
inasmuch as the faculty poloists
have in years past furnished some
exceptionally s t r o n g opposition.
However, there has been an uncon-
firmed rumor circulating about the
campus the last few days that the
wise money is on the faculty any-
way, because of the reputation the
undergraduates have acquired for
