199 Enter Open
Swim Meet To
Be Held Tonight
For All-Round Man
MICHIGAN WILL PLAY ITS HARDEST foe of the year on the ice tonight
when St. Marys of Minnesota invade the Arena, according to advance
notices from the cold north. The Northern 'Giants are being considered
stronger than Minnesota although they have not played as yet.
The Northern Giants will test the Wolverines as never before with their
complete front walls and two sets of defense men. The team is the North's
pride and is being sent against the best in the East, Harvard, Dartmouth,
Yale, Princeton, within the next two weeks. Most of the players hail from
the Dominion although a few are American born.
Michigan's hockey has risen in the last six years until now it can rival
any other amateur team when only first teams are considered. If hockey
were played withiout substitutions the
Maize and Blue pucksters could prob-i
ably beat most teams, including St.-
Marys, Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale,1
McGill, etc. But other teams have1
three complete sets of players to
match Coach Eddie Lowrey's one.
That is the weakness.1
The man who has made Michigani
a name to be considered in hockey!
circles is Edward Lowrey, coach. Af-1
ter refereeing several hockey games
here in the Arena, Lowrey signed up
as coach and director of the Arenar
six years ago.
He had a bad first year, but since
his teams have steadily improved un-
til this year they have reached the
highest point ever attained by a
Maize and Blue sextet.
He's been interested in hockey from
the literal beginning. He played his
first when he was three years old, up
in Ottawa, whence he came. "Up
there they put a hockey stick in a
babys hands instead of a bottle," he
Coach Lowrey has six brothers, who
il tower over six feet and who are
,nd were whiz hockey players.
:ockey and lacrosse are Eddie's fav-
>rites. He played lacrosse for five
years for Ottawa and several seasons
on the hockey team as a defense-
The principle reason for Michigan's
rise in hockey material, or so Low-
rey says. Yost says different. His
tnswer is Edward Lowrey, the man
vho forsees a brilliant future for the
auck game at Michigan which he
,onsiders the "FASTER" sport of this
MICHIGAN LEADS ALL Conference
rivals in titles won and can
truthfully be called, "Champions of
the West." But in the one department
other Conference schools can take
command of the leadership. That is
in sportsmanship at basketball games.
The booing at Michigan's home
court games has advanced to such
a point that every other school in the
league knows that when they come
to Ann Arbor they enter the lion's
den of partisianship.
When Illinois comes here Saturday
they will be struck with the number
of medals, honors, awards, and rat-
ings that is going to be awarded be-
tween halves. These honors were
made on the gridiron by a winning
team whose followers did not have
a chance of being unsportsmanlike.
But it is safe to say that "Trophy
Night" will be marred with consist-
ent booing by Michigan Students who
fail to see close decisions the same
way that the referees see them.
Any two people, sitting side by side,
wll see a close decision in two dffer-
ent ways. Their interpretations will
differ and each will read into the
happenings just what they want to
see happen. Anyone can imagine
how an Illinois student and a Michi-
gan student will differ on a close one.
Each will want something to happen
and will think that it did.
But the referee is closest of all. He
is in the best possible position to see
the close ones. If his present posi-
tion on the playing floor isn't best,
he would be changed so that it was.
And incidentally he isn't allowed to
officiate a game unless -he has the
backing of the two rival coaches, each
of whom has seen him work at least
50 games. But still students will
boo decisions that do not favor Mich-
igan and they will drag the Wolver-
ine rating in sportsmanship down
BOB HAWKINS, very capable sport
editor of the Daily Illini writes the
following in his column:
"Always at .this time of the year,
after Prof. Frank G. Dickinson of
the college of commerce announces
his national football rating, he is be-
seiged with telegrams and letters
from those dissatisfied with his selec-
tions. Here's what Lynn Atkinson
paid good money for to wire Dickin-
son from the Pacific coast:

The nearest thing possible to 200
swimmers-199 swimmers will com-
pete tonight in the first.open swim-
ming meet for both men and women
ever held in the Intramural Pool.
The largest entry was in the 25-
yard race for boys under 12, with 38
names sent in. The 50-yard free-style
for men attracted the next largest
number, 32, entries. Twenty entiies
were received in both the 50-yard
breast- and back-stroke events for
men, while 19 men entered the 220-
There were also 19 entries for the
girls' 50-yard open event, while the
50-yard race for boys under 18 drew
17. The 25-yard race for girls under
14 attracted 14 entries, and the 25-
yard event for boys between 12 and
14 brought 11 entries.
Ten hopefuls decided to pit them-
selves against Dick Degener in the
Coach Mann Pleased
Coach Matt Mann was highly
pleased with the number and quality
of the entries and predicted a most
successful show. Before taking hL
team to Battle Creek yesterday for
an exhibition swim in that city, he
started the task of setting the handi-
caps for all swimmers. In this wa)-
it is expected to minimize the better
swimmers' advantage and make
every race a thriller.
Enough temporary bleachers have
been erected around the pool to seat
approximately 300 spectators. Admis-
sion charges have been set at 24
cents for adults and 10 cents for
children. The meet is scheduled to
start, at 7:30 p. in., and will continue
until champions have been crowned
in each event.
In an effort to better the formt
shown by the Wolverine cagers inE
Monday's 22 to 17 defeat by Illinois,
Coach "Cappy" Cappon put his
squad through an intensive scrim-.
mage last night at the field house.
The first team lined up the same j
way as at Champaign, with Plummer
and Eveland playing forward, Gar-.
ner at center, and Petoskey and Al-
tenhof at the guard positions.dThis=
lineup is the one expected to startC
the game Saturday night, when
Michigan plays a return battle withl
the Illinois outfit.
Illinois is at present tied with Wis-
consin for the Conference lead, each
team having won two games. Illinois
upset Northwestern before takingI
Michigan, while Wisconsin has
beaten Chicago and Iowa. The Suck-
ers will bring a big, fast team to
Ann Arbor, including a sprinter and
two grid men. Four of the regulars
are over six feet tall, and as a re-
sult they excel in taking the ball off
The visiting team is also profi-
cient in foul shooting, having made
10 out of 14 Monday night. In this
-espect the Wolverines are very poor.

Lineup For First
Fencing Meet Set
George^Musso1s greatest burden is his
265 pounds of physique, but he
handles this bulk with such facility
that he is considered the outstanding
all-around athlete in Illinois collegi-
Musso has romped up and down
gridirons, basketball courts, baseball
diamonds and cindered fields of Illi-
nois college campuses for four years
and has become a star in each of
four sports in which he participates.
At present he is the bulwark of
James Millikin University's basket-
ball team's defense.
He played tackle on Millikin's foot-
ball team and captained the eleven
through a successful Illinois Inter-
collegiate Conference season last fall.
In the spring Musso attends to the
catching duties on the varsty base-
ball team-but puts in his spare time
throwing the javelin and discus aid
putting the shot for the track squad.
In fact, he is so valuable to both
these springtime squads that Mlli-
kin officials try to arrange the base-
ball and track schedules to allow him'
a maximum of opportuity to com-
pete in each sport.
Admission prices for Big Ten bas-
ketball games range from 40 cents
at Michigan, Indiana, and Iowa, to
$1.10 at Wisconsin. The lowest prices
for non-Conference games are found
at Iowa, where the general admission
price is 25 cents.

rED PETOSKEY, local grid and
court luminary, seems to go by
various names throughout the coun-
try. Over a recent broadcast of the
popular song, "The All-American

a Cleveland paper persists in laud-
ing him as Pete Petoskey. Incidental-
ly, Newman, Friedman, and Eliowitz
are featured in tie same ditty, orig-
inally written by a Michigander.
