For the last four years the Minne-

Break Medley Record

Two straight games from a team
which has defeated them twice will
be the goal of Michigan's hockey
team as they take to the Arena ice
here at 8 p. m. tonight to do battle
with Minnesota's formidable sextet.
The Wolverines still have a chance to
tie for the Big Ten championship,
it was made known yesterday.
Only two of Minnesota's three de-
feats of the Badgers will count in the
conference standings and thus the
Gophers can be tied if Michigan
should win the games tonight and
Saturday. But the Maize and Blue
cannot afford to slip. Even a tie
in one game would be fatal, and the
Wolves must play the best hockey of
their careers.
Season's Best Hockey

Grapplers Will
Meet Hoosier
Indiana's National Championshipd
wrestling team, which faces the Wol-
verines in Yost Field House Satur-
day afternoon, will bring some of the
outstanding niatmen in the country
to Ann Arbor.
Chief among the Hoosier stars are
co-captain Hawkins and Goings. The
,former is a 126-pounder while Goings
wrestles at 145. Both men are sure
to provide a full measure of competi-
tion and to show the outstanding
styles in grappling.
Devine, 135-pound matman, is a
student of Eddie Belshaw, former Na-
tional and Big Ten champion. Bel-
shaw was considered the outstanding
wrestler in the country in 1932. and
Devine is fitted to carry on for him.
The other star members of the
Hoosier squad are Bob Jones, heavy-
weight, and Voliva at 175 pounds.
Little is known concerning Bush, at
118, or McDonald, 165. The 155-
pound position is uncertain, either'
Neale or Brown being entered.
With Blair Thomas definitely out
of action the Michigan lineup is due
to be jggled. Either Lewis or Paine
will get the call at 145 pounds, while
Joe Oakley and Seymour Rubin may
change places, the former taking 135
and the latter 126. Spoden, Landrum,
Mosier, Wilson, Oakley, and Rubin
are sure starters, however. The 175-
pounder is undecided as yet.

Tryouts for the Women's Swim-
ming Club will be held in the Union
Pool Saturday at 9:45 a. m. All can-
ilidates for membership are required
to pass entrance test.
The test consists of form rather
than s p e e d examinations. Two
Ilengths of the pool in good form is
the swimming requirement, and a
front dive in passable form from the
edge of the pool is the diving stand-
y Everyone who is interested in the
, activity, from the point of view of
either improvement in skill, or parti-
cipation in water games, is invited to

Star In Close Encounter;
Schmitters Outstanding
Facing the stiffest competition of
the season so far this year, the Mich-
igan fencing team struggled through
a long, hard meet to finally beat the
University of Detroit,. 10 to 7, here
last night.
Captain Jerry Winig of the Wolve-
rines and C. Schmitters of the De-
troiters were the hardest workers of
the evening with five bouts for the
former and seven for the latter. The
honors of the evening go to Schmit-
ters who managed to win four of the
seven that he participated in, only
losing the last two because of the
strain of an exceedingly laborious

told and retold until the memory
of "Gentleman Jim" fades into the
past beside that of the great warrior
he blasted from the heavyweight
throne, John L. Sullivan.
Edward J. Neil, the Associated
Press number one fight writer, tells
the story of the only absolute "fake"
fight in Corbett's career.
It seems that a visitor had just
been heaved out of the Jeffries'
training quarters across the street.
Jeffries was training for the fight
that he won from Corbett by a
knockout In 10~rounds.
"I don't like to bother you, Mr.
Corbett," he stammered apologetic-
ally, "but I come from away up state.
I came all the way down to see you
box. They put me otit across the
street and said I couldn't come back.
Please, Mr. Corbett, I can't go home
and tell the boys I didn't see you
"You've come at a bad time," Car-
hett said. "No wonder they threw
you out, we are going to rehearse
our fight."
Well, that naturally floored the
youth and after persistent begging
he promised the following oath: "I
do solemnly swear that I will not tell
a living soul what I am going to wit-
ness, nor ever to spill even to my
sweetheart that I saw the Corbett-
Jeffries fight rehearsed. If I do may
my alfalfa shrivel and I be covered
with warts from head to foot."
Corbett's brother produced Yank
Kenny, a sparing partner, as Jeffries,
and the bout was fought-not cor-
rectly as events turned out.
Corbett and everyone in on the
game howled for days about the
youth, who choking with emotion and
thanks, waving a sedate goodbye and
He apparently kept his word, be-
cause nothing was ever heard of it.
For a time Corbett felt pretty good
about it, in that he had given him
a good time. But conscience is con-
science and finally Corbett was quot-

alfalfa somewhere, I hope he won't

Thus, tonight's game between two1
fresh teams, with the Gophers scrap-
ping to clinch the pennant and
Michigan turning on full power to tiej
is predcted to produce far and away;
the fastest hockey of the season.
John Sherf, brilliant sophomore
wing took the examination yesterday
which would decide his eligibility for
tonight, and the result was unknown
until the press deadline last night.
His presence on the ice would aid
Michigan's chances greatly.
Coach Lowrey, however, announced
last night that whether Sherf was
back or not, he would start the same
lineup used against Wisconsin last
weekend. Reid's foot injury was re-
ported improved yesterday, although
it is doubtful whether he will be
at fullest efficiency tonight.
The Wolverine defense will be
strained to the utmost tonight.
Chapman, Gabler, and Jewell will
have a host of potential scorers to
battle against, since almost every
member of Minnesota's sextet as well
as the reserves have tallied during
the season.
Ten Straight Wins
The Gophers come from their
stronghold with a record of ten
straight victories. Munn, Russ, Gray,
and La Batte have all appeared in
the scoring columns recently, along
with the names of several who have
scored when the starting lineup was
unable to do so.
Still, Michigan is hopeful of vic-
tory. The Gophers should have some
trouble in becoming used to the small
rink and it seems possible that their
entire style of defensive play will
have to be revised in order to stop
the Reid-David-Crossman sallies on
their met.

"Dutch" Fehring, Purdue's versa-
tile point scorer, has spelled disaster
for many of the Boilermakers' oppo-
nents. The Wolves will have a job
stopping him.
Next Ca e Foe
Of Wolverines
Hopes of regaining second place in
the Conference standings hinges on
the outcome of the coming week-
end games in which the Wolverine
quintet faces Purdue at Lafayette
Saturday and Minnesota here Mon-
day night.
The tilt with Purdue will be the
first between thetwo teams this sea-
son, and comes. at a time when the
Boilermakers seem to be at last hit-
ting their stride.
Purdue's revised lineup, with Cot-
tom at forward and Parmenter jump-
ing center in order to give Fehring
more of an opportunity to use his
floor working and scoring talents,
displayed the hardest driving and
most sustained attack that they have
shown all season in defeating North-
western, 42 to 40, and virtually the
same combination is expected to work
against the Wolverines.
Fehring Outstanding
The brilliant individual. play of
Fehring at forward for Purdue was
largely responsible for the victory
recorded by the Boilermakers over
ohestern last Monday, and a dif-
ficult assignment will be in store for
the Wolverine guard chosen to watch
him tomorrow night.
Purdue's hopes of finishing well up
in the first division likewise will be
at stake this week-end, and as a re-
sult every effort will be strained in

The record breaking for the day
was completed when the medley re-
lay team composed of Schmieler,
Louis Lemak, and Bill Renner clipped
exactly three seconds off the exist-
ing conference time of 3:10.4.
State collected no firsts and only
four seconds, two of these in relays,
having to be content with thirds in
four of the events. Montgomery of
State took second place in the 50
from Dersch, while Durrett beat out
Nolan for second in the 100.

DeStefano Wins
Jimmy DeStefano kept up his
string of victories for this year, but
almost lost his first in a sabre match
with Schmitters, who was at one
time ahead by four points to one.
However, DeStefano managed to
come back with a brilliant rally to
take the match, five points to four.
The other prize encounter was that
in the foils between A. Kutlow of the
Detroiters and Winig which lasted 11
minutes and was finally won by Kut-
Al Little of the Wolverines lost his
first sabre fight of the year to Kut-
low in a rather zig-zag match where
each at one time held a lead. Wally
Buhl made his first appearance in
the sabres but lost a close match to
Winig Replaces Sellars
The meet started off with the foils
events in which Michigan took five
out of nine. Winig fought in this
event for the first time this season
and replaced Sellars, who left the
squad last week. Next on the card
came the epee matches, Michigan
taking three out of a possible four.
DeStefano clinched the meet when
he beat Schmitters in the sabre..
