Truss, rangy colored boy from
Flint, was the big gun of the victor's
attack. He lined up at a guard posi-
tion and then transferred to a pivot
position in the scrimmage. It was
his tricky shots that kept Northern
in the running in the first half.
In the second half, Coach Jimmy
Barclay's young brother, proved the
sparkplug for the winners. He kept
his team going at top speed and gave
his teammates some support in the
scoring column to pull Nori hern into
the lead.
Bingo Brown,- former Michigan
boxing commissioner and now Presi-
dent of the National Boxing Associa-
tion, told us early in the winter to
watch Flint Northern' as 'the best
team in the state, including the De-
troit circles. He ip a close follower
of state basketball and frequently
works some of the games.
H has watched Coach Barclay at
Flint for the last six years,{ ever
since the school was started, and says
that he is one of the best condition-
ers in high school circles. No matter
what his team looks like early in the
year, by the end of the season it is
always hard to beat. This year the
boys lost oneigame, the first of a
three-game series with Flint Central.

Returning victorious from the de-
fense of their Conference swimming
title in Chicago Friday and Saturday,
the Wolverine swimmers spent only
one day in Ann Arbor before leaving
this morning for the East 'where
they will defend their National Col-
legiate title at New Haven, March
24 and 25.
The same men who collected 40
points to Northwestern's 27 Saturday
are making the trip. They include
Capt. Johnny Schmieler, Frank Ken-
nedy, Henry Kamienski, Fred Fenske,
Jim Cristy, Louis Lemak, Bob Ren-
ner, and Dick Degener.
Was Sixth Title
The sixth conference title in the
last seven years capped Schmieler's
Big Ten career since he has had tl';
enviable honor of swimming on three
Big Ten and two National champion-
ship teams. This week, he will lead
his squad against the best of the na-
tions collegiate natators in the at-
tempt to annex their third consecu-
tive national title.
ToJim Cristy and Frank Kennedy
goes much of the credit for last week's
victory. Cristy was individual high
point man with victories in the 220
and 440 while Kennedy was second
in both these events and swam on
the 400 yard relay team that placed

The University of Chicago gymnas-
tic team won the Big Ten meet and
its fourth consecutive title in Bartlett
Gymnasium at Chicago Saturday
night. Out of a strong field Michi-
gan placed fourth with a total of
774.35 points.
Capt. George Wright of the Ma-
roon team won the all-round cham-
pionship of the Conference with firsts
in the horizontal bai-, side horse, and
parallel bars. Michigan's only con-
solation in the contest was that
Leonhard Sebald, '34, took third in
all-round performance. The expected
good showing of Hilton Ponto was
cut short when he fell from the hor-
izontal bar and injured his leg, per-
haps seriously.
"The boys had not had enough
competition this year," said Coach
Bill West yesterday in commenting
on the meet, "and they were nat-
uraly somewhat nervous. Also the
fact that three men are required of
each team in any one event, and that;
Michigan had a weak third in most
events, reduced our team score con-
The Michigan squad in the meet
included Clay, Sebald, Ponto, Schil-
ler, Parker, and Ferar.

The indoor trick saon is nv r for
all except the eight ner who will
represent Michigan at the Butler Re-
lays next Saturday. Coach Hoyt has
announced that a two-:uile relay
team and four special ever.t men will
snake the trip.
Time-trials for the relay team arc
scheduled for 4:30 p. m. Wednesday
and are open for all members of the
squad. Ned Turner, Howard Braden
and Ed Lemen, Varsity half-milers.
and a quarter-miler will probably
make the grade.

things easy for the present. One

mer throw in which Roddy Cox
placed second in the last Conference
meet. The hammer throw will be
abandoned by the Big Ten after this{
Hoyt has few promising javelin
throwers in sight and little hope of
garnering many points in the discus
or broad jump. Al Blumenfeld may
come through in the shot put with a
few points now and then. He tossed
'the shot 44 feet 2 inches in the ih-
door meet. Willis Ward has also been
improving in this event.

Ope House To

ST. THOMAS, winner of the Class

home the first State Basketball

boasted. Although Ann Arbor high

teams, they have yet to win their
first state tourney. St. Thomas, cap-

free-and gained nation-wide fame
for his 1500-meter workout.
But this last week-end he added
two firsts to his large list of victories,
in the Big Ten meet. His victories
in the finals were easy ones, the re-
ports seem to indicate, but he was
extended in the prelims. Frank
Kennedy was ahead of him in one
of the openers but Cristy wvas in front
for the finals.

Fiske Defeats Nelson
3-1 For Squash Title
Ray Fiske, next year's football
manager, won the squash racquets
campus championship by virtue of
his three to one victory over Harris
Nelson of Duluth. Fiske hails from
Buffalo. He succeeds John R4eindel,
last year's champion. Both player
resorted to a hard, smashing style
of .'game. The scores. were 11-15,
15-1,"f11-15, and 15-6.
The open Class "A" tournament is
still in progress. Jack Blott will'meet
the winner of the Ernie Smith-Ray
Fiske match to determine the finalist
in the top bracket. Ernie Vick and
Dallas Dort are the 'two remaining
competitors in the lower bracket.
All freshmen who wish to try out
for the discus, javelin throw, or
broad-jump should report immedi-
ately to Coach Ken Daugherty at'the
Field House. Since the squad will
soon be outdoors Coach Daugherty
would like to have try-outs in these
events ready.

Sets Record
Cristy set a new Conference record
in .the quarter-mile Friday when he
stroked the distance in 5:01.4.
Schmieler gave up his chances for
individual honors, competing in the
relays and the 100. Mann felt that
his third in the hundred was good
enough, especially since the main ob-
jective was to save him for the re-1
lay events. The wisdom of this was
shown when the medley team copped
the title after Schmieler had given
Lemak and Renner a nice lead to
work on.
Horn Beats Lemak
Horn of Northwestern had to break
the national mark in the 200 yard
breast to beat Louis Lemak by a
narrow margin. Defeated by the
Wildcat star three times this season
Lemak will have his last chance for
revenge at New Haven this week.
Dick Degener had little trouble
winning the diving event and is the
top-heavy favorite to repeat his win
in the nationals. His 140.2 points
at Chicago are far better than any
Eastern or Far Western diver has
turned in to date.
Traveling by automobile the Wol-
verine swimmers will break their long
trip with an exhibition at Colgate
University Wednesday night and will
practice in the Yale pool Thursday.

Johnny Johnstone, Michigan's ten-
nis coach, is wearing a long face
these days as he considers the prob-
able outcome of the oncoming sea-
son. Johnstone has but one Varsity
man from last year, Snell, captain
of the 1933 squad, to build a team
around. A group of. 21 other men
looks like only a "fairly good bunch."
For three weeks now Johnstone has
been running a pyramid type of
tournament among his prospects. At
present Snell stands on top; Siegel
and Nisen, next, and Appelt, Bald-
win, and Durand repose on the third
row. Among others forming the basis
of the imaginary structure is John
Lederle. Lederle used to play a lot of
tennis' for Royal Oak in his high
school days.
