Hildebrand Wins on Fall From
Bauss in Feature Battle
of Evening.
By John S. Townsend
Upwards of 200 persons were on
hand to see the eight bouts on the
card of the University Wrestling
championships held last night in
the big gym of the Intramural
Sports building.
Practically every available seat
was taken and the rest had to be
content with standing room. Last
night was the first time that a
wrestling program has ever beenl
offered to the public on such al
large scale outside of the Varsity
meets. Every grappler on the card
was a member of the student body
and every match was of champion-
ship calibre.
Hildebrand Throws Bauss.
In the final bout of the evening
which proved to be the feature
match, Willard Hildebrand, a fresh-
man from Saginaw, threw Harvey
Bauss in the 175-pound class. Hil-
debrand held the advantage over
his opponent throughout the match
up to the time when he threw him
,in 7:43. The grapplers started off
with a bang and Hildebrand got the
better grip and tossed Bauss. right
over his head, almost getting a fall
in less than a minute, but Bauss
proved too strong and came out of
it, and then made for the edge of
the ring. This bout was the most
exciting one of the evening and
alone was worth the price of ad-
Heavyweight Match Exciting.
The two heavyweights put on a
real fast bout for men of their size,
with both Spoden and Conover bat-
tling on fairly even terms for the
greater part of the match. After be-
ing forced through the ropes by
Conover, Spoden came back to win
by a fall with the bout at the half-
way mark.
.Hilton Ponto had a tough job on
his hands in handling Duxbury in
the 165-pound match before throw-
ing him in 6:09. Ponto held the ad-
vantage throughout the bout with
Duxbury putting up a determined
fight to keep from being pinned,
but Ponto finally put it on his op-

but Little Andy rebelled and as a
result was retained. He saw service
in the last World Series in a reserve
capacity. His release was expected.
The man the Cards received in
trade was Cullop, an outfielder, who
was immediately notified to report
to Columbus, American Association
farm of the St. Louis interests.
Wilson in Slump.
But the need for the Grimes-Wil-
son deal was not at first obvious.
The excellent pitching of the vet-
eran Burleigh in the last series will
go down in baseball annals. Wil-
son's performance with the Cubs
last season certainly does not need
to be spoken of. He was a veritable.
bad boy in every sense of the word.
After leading the National League
in batting in 1930, his average fell
off greatly, his fielding, never a
strong point with Hack, was none
too good, and worst of all, he was
an avowed trouble maker. He quar-
reled with the manager, Rogers
Hornsby, he encouraged the other
boys to break training and all in all
was no credit to the team. Horns-
by is indeed glad to be rid of him.
Grimes May be Through.
The next question is why Grimes
was traded. He' had finished his
best pitching days and although he
did heroic work in the last -series
it was extremely hard on his arm
and he may never reach full season
form again.
Still another moot point is just
why the Cardinals need another
outfielder. Martin, the ambitious
hero of the series, Hafey, League
hitting champion in 1931, and Wat-
kins and Roettger form a capable
set of gardeners. Wilson, will re-
ceive a chance to break into the
regular lineup, however, according.
to Manager Gabby Street, of the
Red Birds.


Boilermaker Quintet Will Meet
Pitt in Feature Game;
Illinois at Miami.
With Michigan playing the last
pre-holiday game here Saturday
night, most of the other conference
quintets are also engaging in prac-
tice games that will help to keep
them in trim for the opening of
the Big Ten schedule in January.
Purdue and Illinois are the two
teams that have games tonight. In
the feature game Purdue will at-
tempt to maintain their string of
pre-season victories against thy
strong Pittsburgh five. So far on
their western trip, the Pitt quintet
has split even with Western Con-
ference foes, losing to Wisconsin by,
a one-point margin and winning
from Indiana Wednesday night in
an overtime thriller by a 29 to 24
score. Pitt will have plenty of op-
position from Ward Lambert's boys,
as Purdue showed their strength
Tuesday night by crushing Notre
Dame 34 to 24. Last Saturday night,
Purdue scored more than 50 points
in winning from Wa$hington Uni-
versity of St. Louis. Both teams are
strong, but Purdue seens to have
the edge.
Illinois journeys to Oxford, Ohio,
to assist in the dedication of the
new field house of Miami Univer-
sity. The Illini will present' the
same line-up that overwhelmed St.
Louis last Saturday.
Saturday night, Northwestern,
last year's conference champions,
meets Washington University, the
same team that Purdue ran- wild
over a week ago. The Wildcats
should have little trouble with the
