THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Wolverines Sweep Hockey Series, Beat Wisconsin2
Long John Schmieler
* * *
LONG JOHN SCHMIELER is quite
a swimmer, the Wildcat fans have
about decided. They knew thathe
was a good breast stroker and' a
point-winning free styler, but they
had not planned on his capturing the
back stroke event as well.h
"Happy," as he is known to his
Toledo friends, convinced Oxygen
Mann, the coach, that he should
swim the back stroke event when it
was found that Drysdale would be
At first there was a bit of trouble
in putting across his arguments, but
he practiced hard at the event and
the times turned in clinched all
doubt. Down in the Northwestern
pool Friday night, John stepped up
to the mark when the 100-yard back
stroke event was called, got away
with the echoes of the gun and was
He helped to win the medley relay
by clearly outclassing his rival back
stroker. In his own event, the breast
stroke, he dogged it and placed third
as he had been ordered to do. These
two events followed each other and
he was expected to save himself for
his fourth race of the evening, the
400-yard free style.
Degener's victory in the diving
could be expected but Cristy's and
Kennedy's victories were more or less
unexpected. The former won the
440 with the latter second, and these
places were reversed in the 220 with
Michigan again taking one-two.
This was expected to be Michigan's
hardest dual meet of the year,
against the strong Wildcats in the
latter's home tank. The startling
victory gives sufficient strength to the
team's slogan, "We'll be there, or
thereabouts," to show that the team
will repeat their Big Ten title de-
fense with another victory.
The Conference swimming meet
will be held in Chicago's pool, where
the team had an easy night last eve-
ning. It served to get them accus-
tomed to the tank.
AS MUCH as we wanted a defeat
of Iowa last night, now we offer
them good dishes for a victory to-
morrow night. They play Ohio State
and our secret vigil is aimed at nu-
merous Buckeye defeats.
Just how strong would Iowa have
been if Break and Blackmeyer, their
two ineligible stars, had been allowed
to play? They looked like a sweet
ball club last night without them, but
they had to play without the services
of two first-rate stars.
But to'morrow night they will have
to play the very best possible ball,
to trounce the Buckeyes. They will
have to be hot. Bastian will have a
hard opponent in Hosket, the great
Ohio center. Both men are fighting
for All-Conference honors and their
play tomorrow night will probably
eliminate one of them.
TWENTY HORSES have been se-
lected as the cream of the 118
horses that were nominated for the
fifty-ninth running of the Kentucky
Derby. This mile and one-quarter
race, with $50,000 added, will attract
possibly more space in the sport
pages than ever before. Three more
horses were named than last year,
and already the interest is high, as
all of the leading American three-
year-olds were nominated.
Willis Sharpe Kilmer led the nomi-
nators in the number entered with
sceven. His Exterminator won the
Derby in 1918. E. R. Bradley named
six for this year's race. His Burgoo
King won last year and in 1921 he
placed one-two with Behave Your-
self and Black Servant. He dupli-
cated this feat in 1926 with Bubbling
Over and Bagenbaggage.
William Woodward, whose Gallant
Fox was victorious in 1930, nominated
four, as did Mrs. Payne Whitney who
wqn in 1931 with Twenty Grand,
and W. R. Coe, whose Ladysman
rules as winter favorite for the forth-
coming event. The C. V. Whitney
stable, also named four. This stable
won the Derby in 1915 with Regret
and in 1927 with Whiskery for the
last Harry Payne Whitney.

But Team Wins
Neil Gabler Scores With
Thit Seconds To Play
To Win For Michigan
Goal Keepers Star
Wolverines Get Second
Place In Conference
With Two Victories
By ALBERT H. NEWMAN
Scoring a final goal with but 30
seconds to play in one of the closest
contests seen at the Varsity Arena
here this season, Michigan made it
two in a row over the Badgers of
Wisconsin last night. The score was
2-1, and Neil Gabler, left defense-
man, was the player responsible for
the final score which saved the
Wolves from an overtime and the
possibiilty of losing the contest.
Michigan was not up to the stand-
ard set Friday night when they took
the Madison outfit with a score of.
8-1, but Goalie Greeley of the visi-
tors was performing well last night,
and he made several fine stops which
robbed the Wolves o fscores which
should have gone down in the books.
Coupled with this, Wisconsin was
more used to their surroundings than
last night, and they played a far
Reid In Smashup
Another handicap was added to
the absence of John Sherf when
Emmy Reid, high scorer of Friday
night's fray, was taken from the ice
with an injured heel after a spill
into the boards near the Wisconsin
net which cost Southworth of the
Badger defense two minutes in the
penalty box. Reid was unable tohplay
for the balance of the game.
Crossman opened the fireworks in
the first period after a fruitless 14
minutes of fair hockey. The veteran
center cut across the Cardinal net
from right to left and shot a slow
one from close to the cords which
barely trickled under Greeley's stick.
Second Period Scoreless
The remainder of the period was
barren of scoring, and the second was
occupied in more fruitless sparring
with both goal tenders doing efficient
jobs. Late in this period, Reid re-
ceived his injury, and he was re-
placed by Avon Artz.
Wisconsin came out on the ice full
of ambition to tie the score at the
beginning of the third period, and
they succeeded in short order as Hal-
verson, flashy right wing, eluded the
Maize and Blue defense to send one
in from far to the right and deep
in the defense zone. Jewell was un-
abl to touch the rubber. But two
minutes had elapsed in the period.
David received a penalty with five
minutes to play, but the Wolves were
able to repel the efforts of the Badg-
ers who turned on full power in an
attempt to score. David had hardly
gotten back into the play when
Gabler received a penalty, and the
Wolverines were again on the de-
fense for two minutes. Gabler took
the ice again with under a minute
to play, took a loosepuck atthe
Wisconsin red line, and flipped it
into the lower left corner of the Wis-
The shot was partially blocked, but
it wen tunder Greeley's stick and was
ruled as a score by the goal judge
despite some controversy. The re-
maining few seconds saw Wisconsin
desperately attempting to score, but
they were able to make but one shot,
which looked good until Jewell made
a fast save.

M e et Maroons
Occupants Of Conference
Cellar Expected To Be
A Set-Up For Wolves
Michigan's varsity basketball quin-
tet will encounter the lowly Maroons
from Chicago here tomorrow night
for its second game in three days.
Not much 'opposition is expected
from the Midway five, who at pres-
ent are resting in last place in the
Big Ten standings, waging a belated
contest with Minnesota to break into,
the win column.
This game will serve as a "breath-
er" for the Wolverines, who battled
the up and coming Iowa team last
night and will take on the strong
Boilermakers from Purdue Saturday
night at Lafayette.
In the last encounter between the
two teams, Michigan severely
trounced the Maroons 38 to 16. Since
this game the team from the Midway
has shown rapid improvement, al-
though unable to chalk up a Confer-
ence victory. Against Michigan's op-
ponents of last 'niglit, the Chicago
quintet early in February showed
surprising power by holding the
Hawkeyes to a 36 to 32 score.
The game will be the eighth Con-
ference tilt for the Wolverines, and
will strengthen the local five's posi-
tion in the Conference race unless
Chicago reverses its previous form'
and - trips the Wolves. The hapless
Maroons will be engaging in their
ninth conference tussle, having lost
eight games to Big Ten rivals to date.
By FRED A. HUBER
John Spoden redeemed himself,
and resultingly Michigan won its
opening Big Ten wrestling meet of
the season. The Wolves defeated
Ohio State 17 1-2 to 12 1-2 yester-
day afternoon in Yost Field House.
About 1,000 people saw the meet.
Spoden, who became the "goat" of
the team by being pinned in both
of the meets on the Eastern trip,
came back to throw Wilbur Renner,
Buckeye heavyweight in 5:40. Spoden
got the edge at the -start of the bout
and his victory seemed assured, but
his work was better than expected,
according to Coach Cliff Keen, who
was pleasurably surprised at the out-
come of the meet.
Score Is Tied'
At the start of the final match
the score was tied at 12 1-2 points
apiece, each team having three vic-
tories and a drawn match. Michigan
won two bouts by falls while the
Scarlet-and-Gray won one.
The Wolverines took the lead at
the start of the meet when Jimmy
Landrum won a decisive victory over
Captain Lawrence Wonderleigh. The
diminutive Michigan 118 pounder
stayed behind during the latter half
of the bout. His margin of victory
was a 3:11 time advantage.
Oakley Held Even
An upset occurred in the second
match when Floyd Rhodes, an un-
known visitor, secured a draw with
Joe Oakley of the Maize-and-Blue,
at 126-pounds. Both men almost
scored falls but the underdog always
managed to escape being pinned. It
was a rather bloody fight, Rhodes
suffering cuts on his arm and elbow
and a bleeding nose. Oakley had a
cut over his right eye.
Carl Tiffany, Ohio State's ace, ex-
perienced little difficulty in winning
the 135-pound match from Seymour
Rubin. Rubin, State'A. A. U. and All-
Campus title-holder, was in the first
bout at the weight. He was thrown
at 4:20. The winner has not yielded
a minute's time advantage in five
fights this season.
In the 145-pound bout Captain
Blair Thomas was defeated by Frank
Wilson, of O. S. U. Wilson gained a
4:44 time advantage. .Thomas had
been idle all week, recovering from
an attack of influenza which struck
him early in the season.
Art Mosier, who has been suffering
from an injured knee, won from Al-
len Downes, Ohio State sophomore
with a 4:30 advantage. The Michigan
man had his opponent almost pinned
on two occasions.
The Maize-and-Blue won the 165-
pound match when Ed Wilson went
to work and pinned Paul Swayer,
Buckeye representative, in 2:50.

Gets Start For-
The Varsity tennis squad this year
will be One of the largest and most'
promising in many years, according
to Coach Johnstone, Varsity coach.
At least the first twenty on the.
Coach's list are of Varsity caliber,
he said, and more will soon be added
as a result of the all-campus
This year the Coach is starting.
Varsity practice indoors and intends
to continue indoors for a longer pe-
riod than usual. He says he has al-
ways been slightly opposed to indoor
preparation, but after seeing the
marvelous exhibition given by Bill
Tilden on the wooden court here re-
cently, he now believes an equal skill
can be developed on both indoor and.
outdoor courts. This is especially true
here, as the Intramural Building of-
fers almost perfect playing conditions
As soon as the potential Varsity
players get into condition indoors the
ranking matches will be played off
before moving to the outdoor courts.
Coach, Johnstone has ranked the
men expected out for the Varsity ap-
proximately in the order they now
hold before intensive practice starts.
They are: Snell, Appelt, Nisen, San-
dusky, Baldwin, Corey, Siegel, Root,
Waring, Nichols, Durand, Muzzy,
Schnap, Eskowitz, Walker, Bristol.

Coach Ed Lowry cut the freshman

squad, according to Coach Lowry, is
not the best one he has ever had
and has no outstanding players such
as last year's squad had in Johnny
Sherf and Johnny Jewel. The squad
as a whole, is weak in regards to
skating ability, but shows promise

the ordinary frosh squad, but as us-

Varsity it has performed very cred-

pivot men. The fault at this position,
is not in the men, as Coach Fisher
pointed out, but in the men that
they have to play against.
Garner at center is a tough man
for any center to hold down and the
boys on the frosh are not quite tall
enough to take care of him. With

are able to hold their own. This one
