BIG MAT FEA TURE
Longer Training After Holiday
Lay.off Gives Spartans
Edge Over Wolves.
A nine letter word spelled de-
feat for Michigan's Varsity mat-'
men in the State match last Sat-I
urday night. That word is "con-
dition," the most important single
factor in athletic success.
Michigan State had the advan-
tage when it came to condition as
the Spartans had returned to the
mat shortly after Christmas and
had an additional week of work
over the Wolverines, who had not
reached their best condition since
th'e holiday lay-off.
Drills Men Hard.
In order not to be caught in this
same situation again Coach Cliff
Keen is going to work his prote-

til the Northwestern meet almost
a month away. If these workouts
continue to be as strenuous as yes-

Thomas Takes Decision.
Blair Thomas, the 135-pound vet-

pounds Art Mosier gained a win
over Jensen, holding an advantage
Jim Wilson added another vic-
tory by taking the decision over
Marsa in the 165-pound class with
an advantage of over seven min-
utes. The big veteran Stoddard an-
nexed the fourth triumph by a
decision over Reavely iii the heavy-
weight bout. The draw was in the
175-pound weight with Reif of the
Wolverines and Leapard of State

Dry as dust records of past per-
formances, instead of the hot com-
petition of final trials, have decided
the American speed skating team
for the winter Olympics at Lake
Placid next month.
The entries for the bob sled races
were to be named in New York
City in the same way.
The unusually warm weather of
the past week, which leftthe state
without ice or snow for tryouts,:
and the fact that the entries must
be filled by Jan. 21, forced the
Olympic committees to act. The
skaters were picked here yesterday.
The speed skating team: Jack
Shea, Lake Placid; Allan Potts, New
York; Lloyd Guenther, Detroit;
O'Neil Farrell, Chicago; Raymond
Murray, New York; Milford Dietz,
Chicago; Edward Schroeder, Chi-
cago; Herbert Taylor, New York.

Vclleyball Tournament. Six teams
are now entered in the competition.
The Lits defeated the Army in the
curtain-raiser last week while the
Architects easily won from the En-
gineers 15-10; 15-12; 15-13.
The Chemistry team, newest en-
try into the league, showed power
in defeating the new Mathematics
squad by a score of 15-6; 15-4; 15-3,
an overwhelming victory. A post-
poned match will be played off to-
morrow afternoon when the Archi-
tects clash with the Army team.
Forty-six freshmen at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota won football
