Free-Stylers Counted Upon to
Receive Most Opposition;

Michigan, today, starts the de-
fense of its Big Ten swimming ti-
tle in the Buckeye pool at Colum-
bus. The Wolverine splashers are
the outstanding favorites and are
expected to have little difficulty in
retaining the title which they won
last year in their home tank.
Today's program calls for the
qualifying races for Saturday's fi-
nal events. The Maize and Blue
swimmers are listed to head the
number of those qualifying.
Highland, Wilcox Are Good.
Michigan's team of twelve men
will encounter the toughest oppo-
sition from Northwestern's crack
free-stylers, Highland and Wilcox.
The 100-yard sprint will in all prob-
ability go to the Wildcat stars, with
a real battle being waged in the
400-yard free style relay between
the Ann Arbor and Evanston
Matt Mann can count on the
Maize and Blue a c e, Johnny
Schmieler, for at least two victor-
ies and possibly three. Schmieler's
try for three individual titles will
be one of the high lights of the
meet. Last year, his first in con-
fernce competition, he captured
two events and placed second in the
Miller Leads Breast-Strokers.
In the breast stroke Captain Bob
Miller is counted on to come
through with top honors with
Louie Lemak booked for one of the
other places. Andre, the Gopher
star, will give Miller a real battle
for the breast stroke title, having
beaten him in a dual meet a few
weeks ago; but since then th
Wolverine leader has shown great
improvement and Mann looks to
him for a victory.
Dick Dege1e one of Michigan's
Olympic possibilities, is favored to
beat out last year's diving cham-
pion, Lobdell± of Iowa. In addition
to Degener, Raike is expected to
get past the qualifying round and
into the finals.
The back stroke is another event
in which Michigan is favored to
win. Taylor Drysdale may have to
lower another record to take the
honors, but he can be relied upon
to do it if necessary.
Blair Thomas, runner-up in the
Olympic tryouts in 1928, will swing
into action tonight in the 135-lb.

nals at Bloomington. He has com-
piled a favorable record with the

until tomorrow night. Dougovito,
captain of the Michigan aggrega-
tion, will defend his title in the
165-pound class, while his team-
mates making the trip are 'Thom-
as, Wilson, Stoddard, and Helli-
The meet promises to be hotly
contested this year, with many of
the champions and challengers as-
piring to Olympic berths this year.
Defending champions from other
universities are: Aldridge, Indiana;
Emmons, Illinois; Brown, North-
western; Riley, Northwestern. They
with Dougovito, are favored to re-
peat this year. The 135, 145, and
155-pound classes are the only di-
visions in which there is the pros-
pect of an openbattle without any
favorites in sight.
The Maize and Blue aggregation
presents some real grappling tal-
ent. Besides Dougovito, runner-up
in last year's intercollegiates, there
is Thomas in the 135-pound class,
one of the "open" divisions where
there is no defending champion,
Thomas is accorded a good chance
for the title. He was runner-up in
the United States Olympic trials in
1928. Helliwell, state A.A.U. cham-
pion at 135 pounds, will compete at
145 this year.
The 145-pound division is anoth-
er open class, and he, also. is ac-
corded a good chance. In the open
1155-pound division , "Slim Jim"
Wilson will try his luck. Wilson
is a veteran with an excellent style
and a pair of well-educated legs.
Stoddard, in the heavyweight class,
is one of the leading wrestlers in
his division and he will strongly
challenge Riley's present suprem-
acy in the conference.
MEN ARE STRONG
I Coach Kelley Pushes Yearlings
in Effort for Winners
Coach Kelly has a large group o
freshmen wrestlers working out ev-
ery day in preparation for the
Michigan A. A. U. Wrestling Meet
to be held Saturday, March 19, in
Detroit. The meet has special im-
portance this year as the winners
will be eligible to try out for the U
S. Olympic team.
lThisyear the freshmen tean will
be limited to only eight men, one
in each class. This is causing Coach
Kelly a good deal of worry as there
are two or three gqod men in each
weight. He is holding matches be-
tween the entrants in the different
classes all this week to determine
the best team possible.
The frosh have three good bets
in Hildebrand, Lanwehr, and Dux-
bury. Hildebrand and Landweh
won the All-Campus champion-
ships in the 175 and 145 pounc
classes respectively, while Duxbur3

Forty-eight rounds of boxing will
be held at 8 o'clock Wednesday,
March 16, in the Intramural build- t
ihg as the campus boxers compete 1
in the All-Campus tournament.
The semi-finals drew more than
500 fans last year and judging from1
the amount of interest shown on1
the campus. The number of fight-i
ers that started in the tournamentc
exceeded 150. These have been re- 1
duced to 32 who will compete for
the right of entering the finals al
week later. 1
The proceeds of the semi-finals
and finals will be given to the Stud-:
ent Loan Fund. The price for the1
first show is 25 cents, regardless ofi
their University standing.
The forty-eight rounds will in-
clude four fighters in each weight.
Slater is the outstanding individual
in the heavyweight ranks, but most'
of the other classes have several
fighters of equal ability.
For the first time, the boxing
show will attract more than the
usual fight fans as the proceeds
will go to the -Student Loan Fund.
The ticket campaign will be carried
on through the usual channels and
will be managed by the Intramural
Special bleachers will be erected
to accommodate the extra crowd.
The tourney was postponed a week

for Chicago in company with the
(encing and track teams. Lassila,
Ponto, Ellsworth, Parker, Abe and
Harry Steinberg will comprise the
Minesota's tumbling team that
swamped the Michigan varsity here
early in the semester, will be the
decided favorites to win the title
won by Chicago last year. Illinois
and the last year's champions will
be fighting it out for second place
with the Indians given a slight
edge a as result of their two-point
victory over the Maroons in the
triangular meet with Chicago and
Michigan last week. Michigan's
