NOTHER BASKETBALL star of the first magnitude is flashing across
Michigan's athletic horizon. And this same man was once farther from
ng a college basketball player than any player who ever participated for
chigan. His name, of course, is James Edwin Garner. The Niles, Michi-
n pride and joy is said to be six foot 6 inches in height, or the tallest
,n in the Western Conference.
His unusual height made him an excellent basketball prospect when
entered as a freshman. But for three years he was laughed at, yelled at,
de fun of, and generally discouraged in his attempts to iron out the
kard movements.
Towards the end of last year he replaced Daniels in the last few min-
es of a few games. It was rare amusement for the crowd. His antics were
ide and his attempts to score were

pitiful. And he had already practiced
three years.
His practicing would astound any-
one. When most athletes worked
three hours a day on a sport and
considered it enough, Garner would
work five, and sometimes six. Night
after night and all afternoon Garner
would work on his one-handed hook
shot from in front of the basket and
his two-handed hook shot from the
side of the bas-
ket - the shot
<,S c:i t h at D an ny
Daniels devel-
oped last year.
Before bas-
ketball practice
every day for
the last three
y years, Garner
came down
early and prac-
ticed and prac-
ticed. Hours
and hours of
DANIELS constant work
on his beloved sport made him.
From the awkward giant of former
days, he has become Michigan's high
scorer of 'the year. Although Eve-
land, with his natural ability, can
still lead the* big: center in sheer
smoothness, he cat not compare with
him in points made for Michigan
this year.
* * *
COACH CAPPON stated recently
'~that=Garner had improved more
than any other basketball player he
had ever known. Right now he is
good enough to cause Bastian, Iowa's
first-class 'center, to lose his head. In
the Iowa game Garner held Bastian
at bay throughout the encounter
worrying his opponent to the extent
of 13 points. He had Bastian all
tangled up with himself and prac-
tically worthless to the Iowa team.
Garner, with four games left to
play, will probably join the ranks of
Michigan's immortal basketball play-
ers. He already has 85 points and will
undoubtedly raise this to over 100
before the Big Ten season closes.
BENNIE OOSTERBAAN revolu-
tionized basketball in the Con-
ference. He was the first to use the
one-handed tip-in follow up for scor-
ing. Although opponents would tower
over Bennie, he would outjump them
and tip-in the ball for two-points.
Illinois brought Froschauer here to
do Bennie's job, and he did it well for
about five cheap baskets-cheap in
that there was little expenditure of
effort involved.
GEORGE HAGGERTY, in his jun-
ior year, was right up in the run-
ning for high-scoring honors with a
quick floor shot from about 18 feet
from the basket. He used to sweep
in, receive the pass, and shoot all
in one motion. He seemed, to be
'dead' from that distance.
Garner has taken leaves out of
Oosterbaan's, Haggerty's and Dan-
iel's book in his game. Although few
realized it, if he
gets a shot from
the end of the
foul circle, it'll
invariably be for
two points. He
too is 'dead' from
this distance, al-
though he gets
few shots from
there.
He uses Dan-
iels' two-handed
OOSTERBAAN shot, over his
head and back of him, under the
basket. He uses Oosterbaan's follow
up tip-ins and also Bennie's one-
handed hook shot. Consequently he
may join their ranks by scoring 100
points during the season.
In Oosterbaan's big year, he made
129 points, Michigan's highest as far
as we can determine. In making this

EN AVANT *Vor loewad

total he made 57 field goals, which is
still the Conference record.
LAST YEAR WOODIN, possibly the
greatest basketball player of all
time, made 154 points, but only 52
field goals. Daniels madeuabout 100
points and was below the 57 mark.
In the Big Ten race this year,
Johnson, and Reiff of Northwestern
are ahead of Garner, but they have
played in nine games while Garner
only has eight. Consequently they
only have three more games while
Michigan's center has four.
If he can make 45 points in those
four games, which is very doubtful
but possible, he can pass Oosterbaan
and gain the distinction of making
more points than any other Mich-
igan basketball player in Big Ten
competition.

Included in the dope is an outline
of the competition in the sport, the
record of his high school athletic
activities, and other information of
value for a story. The new idea gives
the students in the I-M sports a
chance to get publicity in their home

Wolverines Favored
Coach Hoyt Enters Full
Team In Meet; Freshmen
Also To Compete
A galaxy of the state's outstanding
track stars will gather at Yost Field
House at 7:30 p. m. today to com-
pete in the annual Michigan A.A.U.
indoor track and field champion-
ships. It will be the first home ap-
pearance of what is potentially the
best Michigan cinder team in years.
Wolverine thinclads will be de-
fending their title against a formid-
able array of stars from Michigan
State, Michigan State Normal, West-
ern State Teachers and Detroit City
College. Along with these team en-
tries, several former college track-
men will be competing.
Coach Charley Hoyt has entered
practically all of his Michigan track-
sters in the meet. More than 35 Var-
sity members will compete in one or
more event. Coach Ken Doherty has
also primed several of his freshmen
for the meet.
Battle in Middle Distance
Particularly brilliant battles in the
pole vault and the distance and mid-
dle distance. events are expected.
Chief among the vaulters entered are
McKinley, Michigan Normal captain,
Pottle, former Michigan field star,
Balmer of Western State, Holcombe
of State, and Humphrey of 1ichigan.
In the distance runs such men as,
Zepp of Normal, Swartz of Western
State, and Howell of Michigan are
entered. Arnold of Cadillac A. C.,
Turner of Michigan; Mullins of
Western State; Kahler, Quinn, Cap-
lis and Heshey, .all of .Normal; Pon-
grace of State; and Wright of De-
troit' are a few of the numerous
bright lights who will vie in the mid-
due distances from 600 to .1 000 me-
ters.
Willis Ward may be forced to jump
as he has never jumpc4 before to an-
nex the high jump
title. A formidable
foe in Glickert of
Normal may push .
him past the six-
feet-six mark if
advance dope may
be relied upon.
Michigan entries
include Ward and
Kemp in the
dashes, Alden, De-
Baker, Akerschoek at y
and Ellerby in the
300 and 600-meters; Turner, Lemen
and Braden in the 1,000-meters; Doc
and Rod Howell, Childs, MManus
and Wacker in the 1,500-meters; Eg-
leston, Pantlind and Haefle in the
hurdles; Ward, Mosio and Gafill in
the high jump; Northrop, Humph-
rey, Jennette and Lassila in the pole
vault; Blumenfeld, Damm, Ford, and
Ward in the shot put and Rea, Schell
and Reynolds in the broad jump.
Bunn in Pole Vault
Outstanding freshmen include Sa-
rakas in the 300-meters; Starr and
Dick Ellerby in the 600; Goding in
the 1,000; Randall in the 1,500; Hunt
in the hurdles; Hunn in the pole
vault, and Anderson in shot put.
Michigan will probably receive the
stiffest team competition from Mich-
igan State and Michigan Normal.
General admission for students
and others is 40 cents.

Capt. Blair Thomas will be idle
when the Michigan wrestling team
closes the home season, meeting In-
diana, in Yost Field House, Saturday
afternoon.
The Wolverine leader has suffered
his poorest season, losing all three of
his bouts to date. In his first two
years of competition for the Maize
and Blue he was only beaten twice,
once by Eddie Belshaw, of Indiana,
National Champion in 1932, and by
Hasmet of Illinois the year before.
Thomas was stricken with infiu-
enza before the opening meet, and
was just out of the hospital when
the examination period began. Im-
mediately upon finishing the tests he
rushed off with the team on their
Eastern trip.
Is Ranked High
According to Coach Cliff Keene,
Thomas is one of the country's best
amateur wrestlers when he is right
but inability to reach 135 pounds, his
usual weight, coupled by the weak-
ness left by his illness have made
wrestling impossible until the Con-
ference Chmapionships, practically a
month away.
The loss of Thomas, coupled with
Bob Helliwell's ineligibility leaves
Michigan in a somewhat crippled
condition on the eve of their hardest
dual meet of the year. The Hoosiers
won the National title last year, and
although they have lost Eddie Bel-
shaw, their ace matman, by gradua-
tion, can still have a formidable
team.

Dual Meet At Home
Spectators who pay 25 cents to see
the Wolvernie swimming team in ac-
tion against Michigan State at 4:05
p. m. today in the Intramural Pool
will receive the biggest quarter's
worth ever given by a Michigan ath-
letic team, Coach Matt Mann prom-1

Mann prophesied that the specta-
tors would see a Conference record
unofficially broken for each nickel
that they donated to the swimming
team's fund.
After Capt. Johnny Schmieler pro-
phesied yesterday that his team
would crack several records he pro-
ceeded to make good his statement
by going out and clipping two sec-
onds off the existing mark for the
440 free-style event. It is his aim to
swim the distance under five min-
utes in a meet during his last year
of college competition and there is a
feeling in the Wolverine camp that
today may be Schmieler's day.
Besides the eight regular events of
the usual dual swimming meet there

BLAIR THOMAS
Fencing Team
Meets U. Of D.
Here Tonilht
Fresh from a victory over the Mon-
roe, Fencing Club last Friday, the
Michigan fencing team will face the
strong University of Detroit squad
here in the Intramural Sports Build-
ing at 7:30 p. m. today.
A new problem is facing Coach
John Johnstone as to the makeup
of his starting lineup for this meet.
Sellars, one of the Varsity foil men,
has left the squad for some unknown
reason, and as a result, Coach John-
stone is finding some difficulty as to
who will replace him.
Foils Lose Seiars.
The foils division hitherto had
been the weakest part of the team,
but this departure of Sellars has been
a bad blow. Last week, Coach John-
stone used Nahrgang, a former epee
man, who showed up with some slight
success, but not enough to satisfy.
Aside from this fact,bthe rest of
the starting team will be the same
that had been used. Merriman, a
sophomore, who replaced Nahrgang,
a former Varsity epee man, has kept
up the good work and will remain
with the starters.
Despite all discouraging factors
and advance reports, the Michigan
team hopes to stretch its string of
victories to four. Little is known as
to the relative strength of the Dc-
troiters except that their team is con-
sidered as one of the best in is the
state.
If they win this meet the Wolver-
ines will have beaten one of the best
teams in the state, and will rightly
have cause to claim the champion-
ship of Michigan, one of the goals
they are pointing for. Those they
have taken over so far this season
are Michigan State, the Detroit
Turnvercin Club, and the Monroe

Coincident with the news of the
loss of Captain Thomas comes the
report that Art Mosier's knee is com-
pletely healed. Mosier, brilliant 155-
pounder, wrestled against Ohio State
last week with a bad knee but won
his match.
Two other veteran grapplers will
make their final appearance of the
season in Saturday's meet. They are
Ed Wilson, 165-pound leg scissors
artist, and Harvey, Bauss, 175-pound
wrestler.
Little is known of the Indiana
team. They have split two meets
with Iowa State College. Bob:Jones,
fullback on the football ;team, and
heavyweight is the outstanding mem-
ber of the squad, although co-cap-
tains Goings and Hawkins are wrest-
lers of no mean ability. Voliva, 175-
pounder, is another of the Hoosiers'
outstanding men.

tion and a water-polo game between
the Varsity team and a group call-
ing itself "The All-Stars.",
The latter aggregation is made up
of former Varsity swimmers and-
members of this year's freshman
team. It will give fans a chance to
see in action Tex Robertson, a fresh-
man swimmer whose versatility rivals
that of Capt. Schmieler himself.
Judging from Robertson's times
turned in during practice this sea-
son he will go a long way toward re-
conciling Mann to the loss of
Schmieler next year.
The diving exhibition will serve to
introduce four freshman divers to
local fans. Fehsenfeld, Grady, Diefen-
dorf, and Johnson all held state or
national scholastic titles before com-
ing to Michigan and are all fighting
for a place with Degener on next
year's Varsity.
Mann's stars all reached the peak
of condition for last week's meet with
Northwestern and shall still be at
that peak- for tomorrow's- assault on
Big Ten and national records.

John Sherf, stellar sophomore wh
has been ineligible since the openin
of the second semester, will take a'
examination today which will deter
mine his eligibility for the Gophe
contests. His presence on the ic

Emmy Reid, injured in Saturday

lineup. If Sherf should return, it

would be benched as far as the star'
ing lineup is. concerned.

DAYTONA BEACT, Fla., Feb. 22.-
(/)-England's dominance in- the
realm of speed was sky-rocketed to
new heights today by Sir Malcolm
Campbell, who in two blistering runs
over the hard-packed beach here to-;
day, streaked to a new world auto-
mobile speed mark of 272.108 miles
an hour. The record was made over
a measured mile route.
He also established a new record
of 271.636 miles an hour over one
kilometer on the same trials.
Driving a long, streamlined Blue-
bird car, equipped with a 2,500-
horsepower airplane motor, the 48-
year-old Campbell clipped .94 second
off his own previous record of 253.968
for the mile and increased the mark
by 18.140 miles an hour.
Among the new automobile race
drivers who are expected to make a
determined bid for honors this year
