Michigan's Varsity hockey team for

tet selected by Les Gage, the sport
editor of the magazine.
Emmy Reid, co-captain with
Crossman, was given honorable
mention at a wing position. Jack

an All-American goalie last year,
was given considerable considera-

Outstanding in College Circles.
Crossman has been one of the
outstanding centers in college
hockey circles since his first season
on the Wolverine Varsity. 'The
Reid-Crossman combination is one
of the' most feared scoring duos
in the Western conference, the two
of theme usually combining to pro-
duce the Michigan scores.
This is the first year that Cross-
man has received national recog-
nition on the team selected by Les
-Gage. Last season, Reid was
named as a wing on the second
Wood, Morton Named.
The first sextet selected included
two forward lines, a pair of de-
fense men, the goal teder and
two spares. The two centers nam-
ed on the mythical six were Barry
Wood, member of Harvard's Olym-
pic team, and William Morton, of
Dartmouth. Both men are good
stick-handlers, smart-players and.
fast skaters. Wood is especially
dangerous on offense with his won-
derful body fake.
The first pair of wing men was
comprised of McAlpin, Princeton
leader,aand Charles Cunningham,
of Harvard, who was selected to the
post for the third, successive year.
Many experts consider the Crimson
forward as the best right wing of
the season. -
Defense Men Are Captains.
The'other pair named was Dun-
bar Bostick, Yale, and Lane,
Princeton, a sophomore. The two
defense men selected, John Muhl-
feld, Yale, and Hanley, New Hamp-
shire, were both ,captains of their
respective teams. The selection of

Although the weather up to this

of the Wolverine golf squad to do
much playing, most of the prospec-

vantage of what nice weather there
hase been to loosen up their swings.

golf," Coach Thomas Trueblood, is
still .vacationing in Florida but is

Fischer is perhaps the most re-
nowned golfer on the campus. He
holds the present record for the
University course, having turned in

Potent National Figure.
In addition to his accomplish-

made himself a potent figure in

Western Open at the quarter post
in 1930 and has qualified for the
National Amateur on various oc-
casions. He has also been a con-

other tournaments in and around

NEW WRESTLING CAPTAIN SHOWS
CHECKERED CAREER IN MAT SPORT
Star and Coach Are Attempting
to Effect Comeback.
By Albert Newman.f
Starting out nine years ago as a
high-school boy who did not like to
wrestle, Blair Thomas, captain-
elect of the Michigan grappling
squad, began an amateur career
which brought him at its high
mark to the finals of the 1928
Olympic tryouts. The story of the
new Varsity leader's rise in this
sport reads like fiction.
Captain-elect Thomas became a
high school freshman at the Cresco,
Iowa, preparatory school in 1922, as
a boy who was not particularly tak-
en with the mat sport. Prevailed
upon to give it a try, his interest
and skill increased rapidly and fi-
nally -in his senior year he won the
state championship in his class.
- Entered Nationals.
Thomas came to the University
in the fall of 1926, one of the few
yearling grapplers here in the past
decade possessing any previous ex-
perience in the sport. Under the
tutelage of Coach Keen he improv-
ed still more, and at the end of the
season, he entered the nationals in
the 135-pound class. There, he lost
out in the finals, but gained consid-
Thomas' sophomore year was his
best. Kept out of the Big Ten and
the Nationals because the 1928 cap-
tain here was the defending cham-
pion in thatclass, he resolved to en-
ter the Olympic tryouts at Grand
Rapids on the 4th, 5th and 6th of
July, 1928. .In five bouts he fought
his way through to the finals of the
tryouts. In a thrilling match which
ran to two ovetrimes, the new
Wolverine leader lost to Morrison of
the University of Illinois by a three-
Go West Young Man.
It was a double failure. Discour-
aged by his defeat, and in fin ncial
difficulties because of the length of
his training period, Thomas left
the'University and became con-
nected with a refrigerator firm in
Portland, Oregon. It was while he
was there that he married the

present Mrs. Thomals, nee Miss Ev-
elyn Meeker, of Portland.
Thomas resolved to return to
Michigan last fall, and his decision
was joyfully greeted by Coach!
Keen, a strong personal friend. The
mentor challenged him to stage a
comeback, and both of them set
themselves to the task of proving
the old saying about an athlete's
never coming back a fallacy. Thom-
as had not wrestled for three years.
This season, a fairly successful one,
was largely spent by coach and pu-
pil in atempting to regain the fine
points gained by the grappler in
Dropped Only One Bout.
Events have proven their success
so far. While Thomas has not re-
gained all his former skill, he has
recovered it to a surprising degree.
His one defeat this year was admin-
istered by Belshaw of Indiana, Na-
tional champion in the 135-pound
class. Thomas characterizes his
skill as superior to that of Morrison,
the Olympic choice of 1928.
Next season should see the con-
summation of the comeback hinted
at this year. The grappling squad
seems headed for a good season,
barring accidents, and Thomas and
Keen will again set themselves to
Western State Teachers college in
Yost Field house. On the tenth of
that month the Wolverines will
once again take up their rivalry
with Michigan State, meeting the

gaging the Easterners on January

this past season at Syracuse. On
