From the
By John Thomas
Mann As Announcer
Champion Degener
Big Ten Boxing
Jack Keller
A MAESTRO and master of cere-
monis of no mean ability was
procured for the forthcoming Good
Will Boxing Show yesterday when
Matt Mann accepted the invitation
to act as announcer.
Mann must be known all over the
country for the way he takes charge
of the swimming meets in the I-M
pool. His clipped English ~ccents re-
verberate through the audienceands
after this start in the boxing racket,
Madison Square Garden will un-
doubtedly sign him up immediatelya
to take Joe Humphries' place as theirt
well-known announcer.
* * *
DICK DEGENER has been called
"The best diver of all time." Hes
undoubtedly is, a fact which will sur-1
prise Michigan swimming fans. I
Although he only placed third int
the Olympics, he is rightly rated<
above the former amateur, Mickey
Riley, and Dutch Smith, his con-I
querors.' One hot morning last sum--c
mer the diving in the Olympics was
started. At 8 a. in. they started their
first dive. At 11:30 they finished
their tenth. There were about 20]
different divers and the officials ran
them off in one heat which took ap-
proximately three and one-half hours
to complete. There was no shade at
all for the divers and toward the
end, everyone suffered from the
boiling sun.
Through his seventh dive Degener
was leading all the contestants. He
had compiled one of the best records
ever made in the Olympics, includ-
ing one dive that drew the highest
rating of the day. But on the eighth,
he flopped. The sun had numbed
him and his sense of balance was
gone. He stood up for his eighth
dive, a two-and-one-half front flip,
which is his favorite, incidentally.
His legs really had life in them,
but he could not feel it. His approach
was. fine and he jumped. His legs
took him up higher than he thought
they could and he did his flips too
soon and came down on his back, a
two and three-quarters. He only got
5 on it although he had been knock-
ing off lOs be ore. That flop set him
back to third place. On his ninth
and tenth dives, he tried the board
first, went back into his entree, and
did his dive. By doing this, he could
judge his legs and rearrange his tim-
ing to suit the new situation.
But seven months later he took
four major titles, two of them the
highest in amateur circles. He won
the Big Ten low-board, the Intercol-
legiate low-board, and the A. A. U.
high and low board titles. Riley
could not capture both of the latter
last year as Degener won one.
BIG TEN BOXING advanced a
step recently as Northwestern
sent a team to Wisconsin. The Madi-
son boxers won, 6 to 2. There is an-
other mtach scheduled between the
two schools at Evanston.
Ohio State wanted to put a team
in the ring against the Wildcats but
so far there has been no scheduling
of such a contest. Northwestern will
fight Loyola U. of Chicago later in
the spring with its Varsity eight-
man team.

TINK TEMPLETON recently saidI
that Jack Keller of Ohio State
rated with Carr and Eastman as
the greatest senior college track man
in the coutrty this year.I
The San Francisco sport column-
ist said that if Keller had had any1
luck at all, he would have smashed4
the world's record in the high hur-
dles to kingdom come.

due to an enforced layoff.
Patchin, big sophomore right-
hander, hurled for the Varsity yester-
day, and he did not fare a great deal
better than McKay. His curves were
not breaking well and his control
was rather poor. Still he weathered
four innings well and successfully re-
lieved McKay when the latter was
unable to extricate himself from a
bad hole.
Fish Loads Bases
Fish relieved Patchin, and he im-
mediately walked one man, another
singled, and another walked. Thus,
the bases were loaded with none out.
Then the moundsman steadied and
retired the side with an easy force-
out at home and a neat double play
