Outworn Traditions
'Sugar Did It'
Michigan Help Ohio
T IS TIME for useless, outworn
tradition to go the way of all
flesh-to the grave.
We refer specifically to the custom
of organized cheering and the band
at basketball games. They are not
worth their salt today, even though
they. might have been some 20 years
Of the portion of the tuition that
goes to the Athletic Association, 50
cents is turned over to the band. In
return they are asked to play at th.e
games, in full numbers.
This arrangement might have been
alright before Michigan went Har-
vard, but why not recognize the fact
today and alter the customs to meet
the situations.
The 1933 model of basketball bands
is a small group of about 25 members
called a "pep band." Of course it
would be lowering Michigan's stand-
ard of music to play aiything but
"the old war horses," but the only
reason that the band is called into
the Field House to play is to offer
amusement to the spectators.
We feel that that amusement can
be better supplied with timely ar-
rangements of lighter music. Last
year at the Purdue game, the crowd
"Poop Pooped Purdue" all evening
yet the band responded with Sousa's
famous march. We felt at the time
that with the light, happy feeling
running through the crowd, the band
could have offered better amusement.
Falcone has only to look to the
state where basketball is the most
popular to find actual cases of "pep
bands." If he can not see fit to
brinig his basketball band up to date,
then we feel that he should call it a
l1ad job and let the bandmen go to
the games in their civilian clothes
and leave their instruments behind
The same thing is true with cheer
leading. The average Michigan crowd
does not respond to the leader's at-
tempts .and igiore them. Organized
cheering is. giving way to individual
heckling-something on the matter
of radio heckling of a campaign
speech, for the effort is usually lost

"SUGAR DID IT." Olympic Crist
climbed out of' the pool after
swuinming the greatest quarter mile
ever negotiated in the Intramural
pool. Wt asked him about oxygen
but he disclaimed any acquaintance
with the stuff, looking fearfully at
Oxygen Mann as he did so,
His teammates discovered the true
reason for his record-breaking 440.
Jim found a box of sugar cubes in
somebody's locker downstairs and ab-
sorbed about half the box before en-
tering the water.;
In the race Ironhorse Schmieler
led for the first 200 yards in the time
of 2:23 which was too good to last
while Corky's 2:24.4 was almost as
phenomenal. Schmieler dropped be-
hind when Corky challenged at the
half-way mark.
But that was only the beginning.
Cristy sprinted as if he were only
swimming the 100 as he neared the
finish line. His astounded teammates
could only mutter, "Sugar did it."
And now Oxygen Mann has turned
Sugar Mann. He goes around with
his pockets full of sugar like a stable-
Man. He even promised to have a
bushel of the cubes ready forte
Wildcat meet next week..
There isn't anotherkman in the
swimming firmament this year who

can clip 10 seconds ofT the Big Ten
mark and come within two seconds
of National as Jim did Thursday.
over the University of Detroit last
Thursday places it in first place for
the hazy title of champions of the
state. It was the fourth victory in a
row for the Wolverines over the most
outstanding teams in Michigan, in-
cluding Michigan State, Detroit
Turnverein Club, and Monroe Fenc-
ing Club.
F OHIO STATE wins the Big Ten
basketball title, they can thank
Michigan for the championship, al-
though the two teams did not play
each other.
Iowa, on a two-game jaunt, had
enough to beat Michigan but not'
enough to stay with Ohio in the sec-
ond game of the week-end for 60
minutes. They stayed with Ohio,
14-13 at the half, but cracked when
Bastian was taken out of the game
by fouls.
The Daily Iowan attributes their
defeat to their previous hard game
with Michigan.

tic last period that produced four
goals of the 5 to 2 score. Minnesota
clinched the Big Ten championship
at the Michigan Arena last night by
rallying last in the final period and
kept back the rushes of five Wolve-
rine icemen in the closing minutes
while a crowd of 1,800 were kept
on their feet, shouting until they
were hoarse, with excitement.
The third period was the supreme
of excitement. The big rink and its
capacity crowd simply went wild. Sel-l
dom have the fans here been treated
to such a sight as last night's game.
The Gophers presented a differ-
ent method of defense to what we
have been seeing lately. They are
fast enough to start back-checking
at center ice. Their lob shots, while
not used in the professional leagues
to any great extent, are hard ones
for a goalie to handle and when they
do score, are cheap ways of getting
the points.
First Period
Opening the first period, both
teams played careful hockey, each
feeling the other out. Play went from
one enid of the ice to the other, but
neither tea mseemed to be able to
break away until Emmy Reid took
the puck from his own red line and
carried the rubber in. Partially
blocked by Carsen, the shot was one
of those that just trickles through,
under the foot of goalie Scanlon, be-
tween him and the net. It went
through Scanlon after 16 minutes,
45 seconds..
Second Period
The second period opened with a
letermined Minnesota team bucking
Michigan for a goal by Russ early in
;he period, by following in rebound.
Both teams settled down to some
aice hockey and the Michigan com-
Sination Reid to Crossman to Reid
was working smoothly. Coach Lowrey
was using his usual strategy and
when Sherf went in during this pe-
riod, he and Crossman peppered the
Minnesota goalie. David was very ef-
fective in back checking the fast-
breaking Gopher line.
After 18 minutes of hair-raising
hockey Minnesota got possession of
the rubber at their own end of the
ice and on a quick shot from within
the Michigan red-line. Shot one tick-
eted for a twine sagger, but Johnny
Jewell made a superb save. The re-
bound was long and another Minne-
sota man shot. Jewel, lying on the
ice, again saved the goal but the
second rebound was recover~di by
Aurmis who drove iin ito the net.
Third Period
With the score 2-1 against them,
the Wolverines simply bombarded
Scanlon from every angle. The pos-
sibility of a tic for the Big Ten lead-
ership looked as if it was a possibility
until, from a scramble in front of
the Michigan goal, Johnson sagged
the twine after a rather fluky pass
from Carsen.
Then the fun started. From then
to the end of the game, Michigan
threw a four-man forward line

against the Gopher Swedes and what
a time the crowd had! Minnesota'
penalties for roughing and cross-
checking did not give any oppor-
tunity to connect. Reid. on a solo
rush after 14 minutes of play, sent
one of his bullet shots into the net
and the score stood 3 to 2.
With Gabler, David, Sherf, and
Reid on the forward line and Ted
Chapman playing well up toward
center ice, Johnson broke away fast
and had only Jewell to beat, putting
the game on ice for the Gophers. A
minute later Gray pulled the same
trick and made the score 5 to 2. Al-
though the capacity crowd was on its
feet shouting and Reid, Crosman, &
Co., were playing as never before.
Michigan could not score again and1
the game ended, 5 to 2.1

To Give Maize And
Hardest Test


The toughest assignment of the.
year awaits the Michigan wrestling
team when they clash with Indiana
in Yost Field House at 4 p. m. this
The Hoosiers hold the Conference
and National team championships,
while several individual title-holders.
will also be in the lineup. The meet
will mark the final home appearance
of the Wolverine matmen.
Jimmy Landrum will clash with
Bush in what should be the best
match of the afternoon. Bush is'
understudy to Aldrich, last season's
Indiana captain, and national cham-
pion, and has been filling his prede-
cessor's shoes well. Landrum has won
three of his four matches. The bout
will be at 126 pounds. .
A shakeup of the Maize-and-Blue
team will send Seymour Rubin
against Co-captain Hawkins in the
126-pound go. Rubin was thrown by
Carl Tiffany, Ohio State star last
week in his only start, although he
was wrestling at 135 pounds at the
time. Hawkins was a member of the
title-winning Indiana team of last
Oakley Shifted
Joe Oakley will be shifted out of
his usual class to meet Devine at
135. Devine is a student of Eddie
Belshaw, Big Ten and national
champ of last year, and the wrestler
voted the best all-around man at the
national meet. .
The other Indiana Co-captain, Ed-
die Goings, will grapple in the 145-
pound meet. Ifwis or Freidman will
represent the Wolverines in this
match, the choice being made just
before the meet. Art Mosier, fully re-
covered from his injured knee, is
slated to meet Brown or Neal at
Michigan's leg-scssoTs. artist Ed
Wilson will meet either McDonald,
runner-up in the 1932 Conference
meet or Gillam, a brilliant Hoosier
sophomore who has several times
bested McDonald.
Louis Parker appears to be going
to replace Harvey Bauss at 175. His
opponent will be Voliva, who has a
fall over Hess, Olympic 175-pound
champion. In the heavyweight meet
John Spoden will clash with Bob

New Program

Intent on giving Purdue a similar
dose of what was handed the Chicago
basketball team here Monday night,
the Wolverine quintet entrained for
Lafayette yesterday afternoon, where
they will meet the speedy Boiler-
maker outfit in tonight's major Big
Ten game.
Realizing t h a t inaccurate ball
handling was instrumental in the de-
feat administered them by the Uni-
versity of Iowa five, last Saturday
the Maize and Blue has shown deter-
mined interest throughout the week's
practice sessions to correct the fault
and go through the rest of the sea-
son undefeated.
Smooths Offense


University of Michigan swimmers
will make their second public ap-'
pearance in two days this afternoon
at 2:30. when they will give an ex-
hibition during the course of the
second Open Swimming Meet to be
held in the Intramural Pool.
Competition in the meet will be
largely between local grade and high
school students but the exhibition by
Capt. Schmieler's record-wrecking
National champs should provide
plenty of entertainment.
Jim Cristy is still tired after his
record shattering 440 on Thursday
and will probably loaf today, but
Schmieler is still smarting from the
drubbing he took in that same race
and will try once more to achieve
one of his life-long ambitions and
break five minutes for the quarter
Admission to the meet will be the
same as for the State meet, 25 cents
for both students and townspeople.
A diving exhibition by Dick Deg-
ener and a group of fresman divers
who showed remarkable form on
Thursday will be another feature,
while the crowning event of the pro-
gram will be a water-polo game be-
tween the Varsity and a Faculty
team made up by professors and
It will be the Varsity's last public
appearance before the Northwestern
meet here next Friday night.

Thin adsAreT
Hold Time Trial
This Afternoo
Fresh from victory in the State
A. U. meet, Michigan tracksters v
run through their paces again at
field house this afternoon. Toda
time-trials will determine the squ
which will -reepresent the Wolveri
in the Illinois-Ohio State-Michig
triangular meet at Urbana next S
urday. Coach Hoyt will take so
15 or 20 men on the trip.
The performance of the Maize a
Blue. thinclads in Thursday nig:
meet was highly satisfactory. In
field of _close to 150 the Hoytr
took six first places, five secon
three thirds and four fourths fo
total of 55 points. This against
competition represented is good
any man's track.
Ward Outstanding
Willis Ward, Michigan's one-r
track team, was the outstanding i
former of the evening. The versa
sophomore competed in the h
jump, the dashes, and the shot-1
He 'set a new meet record of six f
four inches in the high jump,
pleaed a close second to Schatte
N. C.) in the 60-meter dash.
Another outstanding feature of
evening was the return to formi
"Chit" Allen, quarter-miler. A
placing .only third in the meet w
Northwestern last week, he ca
back Thursday to beat DeBaker
win first in the 600-meter.

In scrimmaging the freshman team
Wednesday afternoon the Varsity re-
vealed exceptionally smooth offensive
power, which if clicking against Pur-
due should boost Michigan's Confer-.
ence victories to seven.
"Fire-wagon" basketball will op-
pose Michigan's somewhat slower
game, and Coach Cappon has been
spending no little time in tuning up
the Wolverine defense to cope with
this type of play.
Against Northwestern the Boiler-
makers were behind 25 to 10 at one
time, but unleashed their fast break-
ing and powerful scoring offense and
gradually cut down the Purple's lead
to win out 42 to 40.
Petrie Replaces Plummer I
Since the injury of Al Plummer,
Petrie has been working very effec-l
tively at left forward, and, accordingf
to Coach Cappon, will probably start
at left forward. The squad that leftt
for Lafayette yesterday consisted of
the following -men: Eveland, Petrie,j
Garner, Altenhof, Petoskey, Oliver,
Teitlebaum, Fishmian, and Allen.

enior Sextet Seeks
Revenge Over Detroiters
Culminating a long series of in-
tensive drill and an introduction to
intercollegiate play, the senior wo-
men class team will meet an aggre-
gation from Detroit representing the
Detroit Extension Course women in
their last appearance this morning.
The game will be played on the De-
troiters' floor.,
The battle will be a return engage-
mient, as shortly before the begin-
ping of the examination period the
teams met in Ann Arbor. The re-
sult of the game was a win by. a
narrow margin for the invaders.
Genevieve Lawson is captain of the
Maize and Blue sextet, and success-
fully led her teammates to a victory
over Michigan State last week-end.
The seniors are out for revenge, and
will have the advantage of experi-
ence behind them. '
