Swimming Team To Seek New


John Thomas




Aquatic Leader

State A.A. U. Meet
have to see Coach Hoyt's great
indoor track team in action before
the Conference meet in Chicago is
tomorrow night.
The State A.A.U. meet with over
100 entrants will start at 7:30 p. m.
In the Yost Field ouse. This list
includes the best competition in the
state and will serve as the stiffest op-
position that the team will encounter
during the indoor season, with the
exception of the Conference meet.
GlRekert of Ypsilanti will give Willis
Ward first-class competition in the
high jump. The New York Times of
Monday said that Glickert jumped
six feet 5 inches recently which is
within 3-8 of an inch of Ward's best
jump this season.
LeRoy Dues is the outstanding shot
put entrant and is registered under
the banner of the U. of Detroit. Rha
Arnold is one of the best middle dis-
tance runners entered and is unat-
Tim Quinfi, Ypsi freshman is one
of the outstanding candidates for the
100-meter run. Along with him are
20 other freshmen who will be en-
tered in the meet. The Michigan
Normal Varsity of 30 trackmen have
also been entered.
Harvey Smith,.Michigan freshman
is also expected to show brilliantly
in the 100-meters. The Wolverine
Varsity boasts of several stars in this
Michigan should win handily in
team competition although Western
State, Michigan Normal, Michigan
State, and the University of Detroit
will enter their outstanding partici-
pants in the fourteen events.

SPORT SHOTS include:
Michigan swimmers hold every
record in the Chicago pool with the
exception of the backstroke.
Ralph Metcalfe, Marquette Univer-
sity's Olympic dash star, is the water-
boy for the basketball team,,as he
was for their football team.
Georgia Coleman, Olympic women's
diving champion, will turn profes-
sional to join her fiance, Mickey
Riley (Walter Galitzen), for an exhi-
bition tour.

basketball players. Russ Oliver.
for example, played in the latter part
of the basketball game with Chicago
and shortly after the game he was
M-Hutting it with a vengeance...
And what regular was on the verge
of tears in the locker room after th
Iowa loss? Later, while Parroting, he.

THERE IS no correlating our plea
for sportsmanship and our own
criticism of the officials of the Iowa
and Chicago game. The very fac;
that both teams insisted that they
were given a raw deal is indicative
that the officials were experiencing
an off night.
After the game, the 10 players, one
and all, leveled words of criticism at
the two wandering officials. Iowa was
happy to win, but they thought that
they could have won easier if the two
med Iad called the plays correctly.
Oi the other hand, the Michigan
p lyers feel that the breaks that Iowa
received were cashed in upon while
those that they got went without ac-
complishing anything.
Personally we do not feel that they
tried to favor one team as over an-
other, yet they called incorrect plays
frequently and with aandon. For
example, at the end of the game Mil-
ler tried to make the two centers
jump the ball when the play should
have been an outside ball for Michi-
gan. Iowa had advanced the ball over
the center line and then had thrown
it back again to one of their own

players in back of the line. Twenty-
five seconds were taken up by Miller's
wrong decision which might have al-
lowed Michigan to win or Iowa to
score again. After (le game he ad-
mitted that he was wrong.
In the Chicago game the same two
officials decided to let nothing get
by, and hampered the game with too
frequent jump balls. However here
it did not matter and their second
successive off night did not matter.
We still believe in sportsmanship
and also in our criticism.
Despite the fact that today is a
nationaleholidayand all University
classes are on vacation, the women's
fencing class will be held as sched-
uled at Barbour Gymnasium at 7:30
p. m. under the tutelage of Coach
John Johnstone.

Big Ten Marks
May Be Broken
Kennedy, Cristy, Captain
Schmieler All Hope To
Eclipse Old Times
State is Set-up
Will Be First Home Meet
Of Season; Louis Lemak
After Horn's Record
At least three and possibly five
.nference swimming records will be
broken by the Wolverine team in
'heir meet with Michigan State to be
meld in the Intramural Pool at 4:05
P. m. tomorrow. Such was the pre-
diction made by Coach Matt Mann
and Capt. Johnny Schmieler yester-
day afternoon.
The State swimmers are expected
to offer only the feeblest of opposi-
tion and Schmieler's men plan to
swim against . the watch instead of
against the Lansing mermen.
Schmieler said that the two relay
teams should have little difficulty in
eclipsing former marks. Mann plans
to use a stronger team in the 400-
yardsevent than the outfit that broke
the conference record at Evanston
last Saturday night. He expects Ken-
nedy, Renner, Kamienski and Fenske
to clip seconds off the existing mark
of 3:44.2.
Schmieler in Relay
In the medley the Wolverine cap-
tain will team with Louis Lemak and
Bill Renner in the attempt to smash
the existing mark of 3:10.4.
Lemak, who gave Horn of North-
western a close race Saturday night
when the latter lowered the Confer-
Mce record to 2:31.3 for the 200-yard
breast stroke, will try to clip another
tenth of a second off that time.
Schmieler himself will swim in the
220- and 440-yard free-style events
along with Jim Cristy and Dave
Kennedy. Commenting on these two
races, Mann said that he would eat
his blue and white toweling bathrobe
if one of the three didn't lower at
least one of the times.
Holds Mark
The present 220 record of 2:17.3 is
held by the Michigan captain, who
has been swimming the distance in
;lose to 2:16 during practice.
Kennedy holds the 440 record of
5:06.4. He and his two teammates
wvill be gunning for something under
five minutes, a mark that Schmieler
has already achieved a half-dozen
Imes in practice.
Besides these events in which Wol-
verine stars will be after records
there will be th 150-yard, back-
stroke with Sullivan and Boice rep-
resenting Michigan. Mann plans to
use some of his untried sophomores
in the 200 yard relay and Fenske and
I Renner in the 100-yard free-style.
Divers to Compete
There will be competition with
State in the low board diving and
Mann plans a high board exhibition
as well. The latter will be given by
Dick Degener and a group of out-
standing freshman divers; Johnson,
Fehsenfeld, Diefendorf and Grady.

Shades of the hoopskirt and crino-
line days; shades of Victorian con-
servatism; shades of practically any-
thing! In fact, just shades.:,Another
stronghold of the dominant mate .as
tallen before the onslaughtaofthe ;
militant Michigan Amazon with a
rattling thump of hockey sticks on
glare ice, with the thump of soft
bodies on same, with a hey nonny
nonny and a hot-cha-cha.
Coach Edward Lowrey of the Mich-
igan hockey team entertained yester-
day afternoon at Weinberg's Coli-
seum. It was a charming affair; his
guests were 20-odd young ladies I
(maybe it was just their clothes that
made them look that way). The party
was plenty slick, although the general
atmosphere was somewhat chilly as
the young ladies took to the ice like
Coach Lowrey, garbed in the con-
ventional pants and sweater, and
carrying a swanky hockey stick of
the usual wood, graciously performed
the introductions. Puck met stick
and then Miss Frances (Fanny, to
you) met the ice several times. In
fact that was the outstanding feature
of the entire affair.
Most Genial
Mr. Lowrey, playing the genial
host, was not to be outdone in this
part of the proceedings. He fell hard
for one of the young ladies. She
made a poor pass of the puck to him
and he turned,lost his balance, and
went sprawling. Lowrey's reactions
could not be discovered as there was
no mental telepathist present.
Ladies' Man Lowrey
Sprawled on the ice;
Refrain from saying
Something not nice.
When interviewed iii:regard to his
plans concerning the 'future of the
group of females in tho sport, Coach

John Schmieler, who led the Mich-
igan swimmers in two victories over
Northwestern and Chicago last week-I
end, will try for a third consecutive
win against Michigan State Thurs-
Are Inferior To I
Other Ye ars.
In Coach Otto Kelly's opinion the
freshman wrestling squad this year
does not come up to the teams of the
past. One reason for this, he stated,
was the fact that as much time and
attention could not be given the boys
as formerly.
Some 34 yearlings are still work-
ing out regularly three times a week
at the Waterman gym under Kelly's
tutelage. A few of them have shown
up well enough to merit attention.
Palmer is probably the outstanding
man in the 115-pound division. Lapi-
des leads the 125-pounders. No one,
as yet, has questioned the superiority
of Austin Fiero in the lightweight
class. Butler and Marshner are fight-
ing it out for 145-pound honiors.
Meisel, although a trifle over-
weight,, stands out in the 155-pound
division. At 165 the competition is
stiff but Higbie, perhaps, has the
edge on his rivals. Neafus is the only
175-pounder on the squad.
The complete squad list at present
is as follows: Adams, Butler, Caw-
thra, Colville, Fleishman, Fiero, Gar-
dner, Guenther, Higbie, Lapides,
Lein, Lenzner, Ode, Olmstead,
Marshner, Merrill, Neafus, Nichols,
Palmer, Pearlstine, Schwab, ,Sowan-
ski, Steel, Stone, Taylor, Vedder,
Wanty, Reed-Hill, Hamot, Meisel,
Simkins, Speer, Gore and Guerth.
