For State Meet
Thomas Has Difficulty In
Reaching Weight; May
Enter 145-Pound Class
Oakley To Be Idle.
1Match Between Freshman
Squad And Varsity Is
Scheduled For Friday
Entering the two week period of
intensive training before the open-
ing meet of the season, Coach Cliff
Keen Is faced by several problems in
selecting a regular wrestling team
to face Michigan State, Jan. 21.
Abundant material in the heavier
divisions, where experienced wres-
tlers predominate, is matched by a
corresponding w e a k n e ss in the
Chief among the problems is Cap-
tain Blair Thomas. Thomas, an ex-
perienced grappler at 135 lbs., re-
ported overweight this season and is
having difficulty in training down.
lIe may choose to wrestle at 145 lbs.,
although Bob Helliwell, a letterman.
on the 1931-32 squad is back to bid
for that position.
Oakley Coming Back .'
Joe Oakley, veteran grappler at
126 lbs. is back working out with
the squad but is still favoring an in-
jured leg. It is expected that he will
be kept idle during the match against
the Spartans, but Oakley expects to
see action on the. Eastern trip.
Another enigma is Dal Sigwart,
who won a. letter two seasons ago.
Sigwart has been unable to practice
much, due to pressing curricular ac-
tivities. Should he be able to reach
top form he may replace Oakley in
the first match,.or may even put
up a'scrap for the 118 lb. jQb, al-
though Jimmy Landrum appears to
have the call at that weight. f

Blair Thomas, captain of tae wres-
tling squad and winner of two titles
in the 135 pound class, is having dif-j
ficulty in making his weight this
year. After reporting overweight, he
may choose to wrestle in the 145
pound class rather than train down
to 135 pounds. Should he make this
choice, Thomas will be competing
with Helliwell, another veteran.

University of Iowa basketball players,

received today by Dr. E. ,H.. Lauer,
Hawkeye athletic director..
The two players barred from com-

MICHIGAN SHOULD HAVE won1
the Illinois basketball game. By
outshooting them from the floor, 7
to 6, the two-point advantage would!
have won most games. But Michigan
committed 11 fouls and Illinois made!
10 of the shots for the extra point.
Illinois committed seven and Mich-j
igan made three. The, foul line told
the story, 10 points to three.
Last year the Wolverines made
about 50.per cent of their fouls. This
was the first time that a Maize and
Blue cage team dropped below 75 1
per cent for many years. So far this
season they have dropped further,
to about 33 per cent.
Any basketball quintet spots the
home quintet about seven points, ac-
cording to most critics. If this is
true, and considering the foul line
statistics, Michigan is about due to
take Illinois into camp by about a
10-point margin. However in basket-
ball anything can happen. One
freshman cager expressed it, "There
is absolutely no justice in basket-
W HILE CAPPON'S team was bow-

Courtright's squad took a beating at
the hands of Ray Fisher's freshmen,
Monday afternoon, 30 to 16. Fisher
started his second yearling team
against the Bee's for the first 20-
minute period and were kept on the
low end of the half-time score, 12-5.
Then Dick Evans, George Ford, and
Co. were sent into the fray and pro-
ceeded to make 12 -points before the
Bee's were able to score. Ford wasl
hot and his teammates kept feeding
him to pile up the 25 to 4 second-
Coach Fisher has one of the best
teams he ever coached in' this. year's
cagers. He has two .excellent guards
and three men on the front wall that,
appear to rival those of the Varsity.
THE STATE of Michigan can
boast of two hot. hockey teams.
Two squads that hail within its bor-
ders are piling up large scores
against opponents that are doped to
pUt the lid on their sprees. The Red
Wings in Detroit took three teams
into camp within four days, which in
their competition, is record-break-
Coach Lowrey's ice-men have been
doing the 'same thing. He keeps his
team at high-scoring pitch through-
out 60 minutes of gruelling hockey
without three front lines, as most
college teams have. How they stand
it has been the wonder of every op-
in John Sherf Michigan has a
one-man offense 'and in Emmy Reid
and Keith Crossman, the cleverest
passing duo in this part of the coun-
try. Ted Chapman just turned in his
best game of his career against O.
A. C. Although he does not draw
down the column inches, because he
is a defense man, he is extremely
'valuable to the team.
T. MARY'S of Minnesota are
starting their annual eastern
trip against Michigan Friday. They
will play Harvard, Dartmouth,
Princeton, Yale,:Clarkston, New York,
Crescents and the Atlantic City Club.
Last year this trip through the

their rangy center, incidentally over
Jack Tompkins. They have a fast

Golf now is too tame," said the
open champion of the United States
and Great Britain.
"Good players knock the ball on
the green in two strokes and then
take two puts for a par four. If we
had more one putt greens the game
would be much more interesting to
watch and play.
"My idea would be to make the
cups eight inches across instead of
4 3-4. What a difference that extra
3 1-4 inches would make! It would
work distinctly to the advantage of
the star player, and I'll tell you why.
"Say a crack player and one just
average are playing. The average
player puts his ball on the green say
20 or 25 feet from the cup. The ex-
port is closer, say 12 to 15 feet. But
each will take two putts and halve
the hole. If the cups were bigger,
the average player would take his
twvo putts from. 20 to 25 feet but the
exuert from 12 to 15 feet would
knock his in every time. There would
be the thrill.
'"In Florida some time soon we are
going to have a 72-hole tournament
with the cups eight inches. I be-
lieve some good player well on his

get within 10 or 12 feet of the cup on

Mann announced yesterday that the

The two met twice during the 1932
season, each winning a game, so Fri-
day's tussle promises to be something

BDy hARMON L. WOLFE
Something new in the way of track
talent has turned up at the field
house this season, and it isn't the
sort of thing that saddens the sport
critics about town either. Michigan
appears to have a group of ui: league
distance men for the coming can-
paign instead of one man in each
event as in the past.
Heretofore Michigan fans have
had to pin their entire hopes for
points in the mile and two miles
upon single entries, but from early
session dope this year it would look
as though Coach Hoyt will have difri-
culty in placing all of his distance
In support of the ajove contention,
one need only mention the practice
times turned in at this early date.
The veteran "Doc" Howell has al-
ready turned in a fancy three-quar-
ters around the 3:14 mark. and the
newcomer, Don Boylan dropped the
figure considerably with his 3 12 last
Saturday. Either one of these per-
formances might be calculated to set
