Wolverines Favored But Want
to Better Wildcats' Work;
Begins at 7 o'Clock
Michigan's national champion-
ship natators will engage Minne-
sota tonight at 7 o'clock in the
Intramural pool. Admission will be
twenty-five cents for faculty mem-
bers and students with identifica-
tion cards.
In addition to being the first Big
Ten meet of the season for the
Wolverines it will be Ann Arbor's
only opportunity of seeing the
national champions in action until
they defend their national title
here the last of March.
Michigan Favored.
The Maize and Blue splashers
are expected to come out on top
against the Gophers, but whether
they can pile up as large a margin
as Northwestern did recently is a
matter to be decided tonight. The,
meet will offer plenty of interest
as Minnesota ranks close to Michi-
gan and Northwestern in Big Ten
tank circles.-
However, the local aggregation
will be looking beyond tonight'sl
affair to the Northwestern encoun-
ter, which is scheduled to take
place a week hence.
Paavola May Star.
Coach Niels Thorphe and his
Gopher tank men arrived in Ann
Arbor yesterday and went through
a light drill in the afternoon in
order to get accustomed to the In-
trarnural pool. Among the Minne-
sota natators is Harry Paavola,
brilliant backstroker, who may
force Taylor Drysdale to lower an-
other record in order to beat him
out. Captain Bob Miller and Louie
Lemak will have another interest-
ing struggle on their hands in com-
peting against Fritz Kruger in the;
breast stroke.
The Gophers brought with them
several other swimmers of marked
ability, among them being Wally
Lang, star distance man. Support-
ing Lang in- the longer events are
Quail, Leicht and Swennes. In addi-
tion to Paavola in the backstroke.
Coach Thorphe has Anderson and
Moulton, with Rotola and Swennes
as the best bets in the sprints.
To Play Polo.
Following the swimming meet the
two teams will meet each other in
water polo.
Coach Matt Mann's entries for
the Minnesota meet are as follows:
400-yard relay: Marcus, Smith,
L a d d, Kamienski, Fenske and
Schmeiler; 200-yard breast stroke:
Miller and Lemak; 150-yard back-
stroke: Drysdale, Schmeiler and
Bailey; 440-yard swim: Cristy and
Kennedy; 100-yard free style: Ladd,
Smith, Schmeiler and Marcus; div-
ing: Degener, Fenske and Raike;
220-yard swim: Schmeiler, Ladd
and Kennedy; medley relay: Drys-
dale, Lemak, Marcus, Schmeiler and
Three former coaches in the
American Hockey league are in dif-
ferent roles this winter. Red
Stuart, ex-Minneapolis, is playing
for Duluth; Cully Wilson, ex-St.
Paul, is at Kansas City, and Kenny
McKenzie, former St. Louis coach,
is refereeing.

Faces Battle

Bob Miller, Captain of the Wolv-
erine swimming squad, will have
same real opposition tonight in the
200-yard breast stroke event when
he races against Fritz Kruger.
Appointment of Gopher Coach
Departs From Policy of
Employing Alumni.
PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 26.-(/P)-
After several dismal football sea-
sons, Princeton now has definitely
broken away from its policy of
alumni coaching with the appoint-
ment of Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler,
as its new head football coach.
Signs for Three Years.
The appointment of Crisler who
several days ago said he had re-
ceived an offer from Princeton,
was definitely announced last night
by Thurston J. Davies, supervisor
of athletics at Princeton. Davies
said he had been informed that
Crisler had signed a three-year
Crisler, a University of Chicago
graduate, has been head coach and
director of athletics at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota. He recently gave
up the coaching part of his duties
because he found it too arduous to
hold two jobs, and Bernie Bierman
of Tulane was named Minnesota
Salary Scaled.
Although Crisler said he consid-
ered the Princeton offer "too flat-
tering to be refused" Davies' an-
nouncement said that his salary
would be "not in excess of the
faculty scale." It is understood that
the highest paid member of the
regular Princeton faculty receives
about $10,000 a year.
Iowa will announce their new
football coach at the next meeting
of the Board in Control of Ath-
letics. Jim Crowley is still consid-
ered the leading contender.

Meet Tonight Will Provide First
Copetition of Year for Bulk
of Wolverine Squad.
Big Ten track teams will get their
first opportunity of the season to
view the highly touted Maize and
Blue track and field aggregation
tonight when the Wolverines swing
into action against the University
of Chicago in the Midway field
It will also provide the first com-
petition of Lie year for the bulk
of the Michigan squad since oly
five men made the trip to the West
Virginia relays.
Brooks is Threat.
John Brooks, colored Maroon
star, will have a tough job on his
hands to dispose of the threats of
Renwick and Egleston, Wolverine
dash and hurling stars respectively.
However, the Chicago boy has turn-
ed in some good performances.
Cap't Russell, of the Wolverines,
is not expected to have much trou-
ble in disposing of the threat of
Jontry in the quarter mile. Birney
in the pole vault, and Robertson in
the high jump are possible point
winners for the boys from the Mid-
way. Moisio and Jusek, Wolverine
high jumpers, lack experience as is
the case with Humphrey in the pole
vault. However, on the basis of their
performance in informal trials,
each of the above named must be
made the favorites to cop their
respective events.
Brooks and Damm, Michigan's
entries in the shot put, form prob-
ably the weakest link in the array
of talent which will be thrown
against the Maroons.
Wolfe Will Run Mile.
Turner and Ecknovich will be
hard to beat in the half mile.
Howell also looks to be a good bet
to cop the two mile race if he can
continue the form shown in early
season trials. Harmon Wolfe will
run the mile as the lone Michigan
entry in this event. Should Howell
falter in the two mile Hill will also
be on hand and will have to be
reckoned with when the winner is
What Coach Hoyt is particularly
interested in is the showing of his
new men, especially Renwick. In
his only competition of the year, at
West Virginia, the Michigan speed
king established a new Eastern
record and Hoyt wishes to decide
for himself whether or not there
was anything flukey in the per-
