Won By Falls In All-Campus

Ponto Triumphs
Over Parker. In
Overtime Match
Don Fiero And Seymour
Rubin Maintain Hold On
Titles Won Last Year
Austin Fiero Loses
Lewis Beats Harrod With
3:39 Advantage; Bissel
Pins Johnson
Eight thrilling matches climaxed
the All-Campus wrestling tournament
held last night at the large gym of
the Intramural Building. About 100
spectators were present at the bouts.
Three of last year's champions were
overthrown and two managed to re-
tain their titles. Don Fiero and Sey-
mour Rubin were the title repeaters
while Austin Fiero, Don Lewis, and
Lewis Parker lost championships won
last year.
The matches last night started off
with the 118 pound final between
Fiero and Edward Kellman, a fresh-
man. Fiero, with the advantage of
three year's experience on the Varsity
squad, had it all over the yearling
and pinned him in 2:30.
Rubin Gains Falls
In the 126 pound final, Rubin com-
pletely outclassed Walter Heavenrich
and managed to get a fall in 5:20.
Heavenrich, a freshman, put up a
hard fight but Rubin's experience was
the telling factor.
One of the best matches of the eve-
ning was that between Seymour
Freedman and Austin Fiero in the
135- pound division. The bout went
overtime bu was finally won by
Freedman who had a two minute
advantage. The match was even al-
most all the way with the exception
of the closing minutes when Freed-
man managed to get behind Fiero
and hold him for enough time.
Another hard fought match was
that in the 145 pound class between
Don Lewis and Jack Harrod, won by
the latter over last year's titleholder
by a time advantage of 3:39. Lewis
had the upper hand in the early
stages of the battle but blew in three
minutes. Harrod almost had a fall on
several occasions but could never put
on enough push.
Bissell Pins Johnson
Frank Bissell had an easy time in
the 155 pound final, and, after a
quick break, pinned Johnson in 50
The thrilling battle of the card
was that in the 165 pound class be-
tween Hilton Ponto and Lewis Parker.
Both appeared to hold profound ad-
miration for each other's prowess at
the beginning, but when their heat
was aroused, the tussle became inter-
esting. Both men were practically
evenly matched, Ponto having the
advantage in speed and Parker the
advantage in experience. H'owever,
the former champion's experience
was not enough and Pont upset him
in two overtime periods with only
two minutes advantage.
Ralph Neafus won the 175-pound
title by pinning Jesse Garber, a fresh-
man, in 2:15. The final match of the
evening saw Harry Wright pin Bud
Hanshue in 2:30. Both men are fresh-
men and both were All-State tackles
last year. Wright weighs 250 pounds
and his win was due mainly to his
advantage in weight.

Chuck Klein Meets His New Bosses

Matt Mann Prophesies Another
Great Tiea n nRadio Speech

"We'll be there or thereabouts!"I
has become the official slogan of
Michigan's 1934 Varsity swimming
team. It gained that dignity yester-
day afternoon when Coach Matt
Mann used it in telling the world, via
the regular Thursday afternoon Uni-
versity broadcast, what chance Mich-
igan had for a national swimming
title this year.
Mann's interview by Prof. Waldo
Abbot, director of the University
Broadcasting Service, was one in a
series of programs featuring Mich-
igan's coaches. The Varsity mentor
answered questions put to him by
Abbot, which ranged from how to
teach tiny tots to swim to how the
Japanese used oxygen in the recent
Has Fine Prospects
When asked what he thought about
this year's prospects Mann acknowl-
edged the fact that he ought to tell'
a bear story of injuries and ineligi-
bility, but instead said that this
year's outfit appears to be the best
he has had available in years.
I-M Basketball
Tourney Season
To Open an.
Play in the most popular sport on'
the Intramural sport's card, basket-
ball, will begin immediately after
school resumes. The Independent and
Fraternity teams have been practicing
for the past month to condition
themselves for the league season.
17 teams have already entered in
the Independent division, and at
least 8 more teams are expected to
enter before the entries close tonight.
Last year, with 37 teams fighting for
the championship, the Freshmen
Physical Eds won the title, nosing
out the Blue Birds, 25-21, in the
titular game. Play will begin Jan. 8.
52 in Frat League
In the Fraternity league, 52 class
A and 25 class B teams have entered.
Alpha Delta Phi, the class A winner
last year, with Theta Chi, runner-ups,
and Sigma Chi, winner over Delta
Tau Delta in the class B league have
entered teams again this year.
Earl Riskey, assistant director of
the I-M department, issues a warning
to basketball players, who are par-
ticipating for the initial time this
year, to take precautions against blis-
tered feet and sore muscles. In a
single day last year, 60 players re-
ported to the first aid room to re-
ceive treatment for blistered feet,

Whether Michigan will have a super
team or just another great outfit
depends on the elegibility of one man,
according to the coach, and he said,
"That fellow is working awfully hard
on his studies and I think he'll make
Outlines Record
Abbot by adroit questioning drew
from the modest speaker a reluctant
review of what Michigan team's have
done since he took over the reigns
here eight years ago. That record in-
cludes six Conference titles and four
National championships.
Michigan's "Knute Rockne of the
Swimming World" spent much of his
allotted half hour in extolling the
benefits of swimming to young and
old. To illustrate his points he showed
how swimming and water polo have
done much in recent years to keep
Michigan's office and classroom-
bound professors in good condition.
He extolled the benefits to be gained
from remaining submerged for sev-
eral minutes on end with a hefty
football coach sitting on one's head
as being highly conducive to lucid
Praises Degener
Questioned about the diving pros-
pects for the present season, Mann
said that in Degener Michigan has
"undoubtedly the finest diver the
world has ever seen." He feels confi-
dent that the blond title-holder will
cop his third consecutive national
crown this year.f
Another section of his talk was
devoted to a short resume of the de-
velopment of different swimming
strokes leading up to the present
American crawl.
Describes New Stroke
He prophesied that within a short
time most of the nation's best swim-
mers will be using the innovations in-
troduced by the Japanese when they
won their overwhelming victory in
the 1932 Olympic swimming competi-
His speech concluded with a heated
attack on "doping" methods used in
any sport. He pointed out that the
Japanese would have won their
crowns in the Olympics without the
use of oxygen, but that his attack last
year was prompted by the belief that
any "doping" of athletes is both dan-
gerous and unethical, saying that
men have been jailed for "doping"
race horses while human "doping" is
Charlie Gehringer, star second

Pennsylvania, Maryland,

CoachFranklin Cappon announced
yesterday that eleven men will ac-
company the basketball team on
their Christmas Holiday invasion of
the East. The announcement came
following the last pre-trip practice
in the Field House yesterday after-
Heading the group is Captain Fred

Al Plummer, Fred Allen, George Ford,
Russ Oliver, John Jablonski, George

Two Unable To Go
Manny Fishman, tough luck mem-
ber of the squad, is forced to remain
at home due to an ankle injury which
is taking its time about healing. Don
Black is also out of the list because
of an injured knee. Cappon is the
only coach accompanying the squad,
other staff members being occupied
with their scouting duties.
The squad will depart from the
Michigan Central station at 3:30 this
afternoon, headed for Philadelphia.
They expect to arrive there at around
7 a. i. tomorrow.
The team will not engage in a
workout before their first encounter
of the invasion with Pennsylvania
Saturday night.
The team will meet Maryland, on
Monday night, Rutgers Wednesday
night and Temple Thursday night.
The Eastern invasion is expected
to indicate whether Michigan will
have a Conference contender this
year or just another ball team. It
will also serve as a means of deter-
mining the comparative strength of
Eastern and Western basketball
Cappon has not, as yet, decided
definitely on a permanent first-team
lineup. At present Fred Allen and
John Jablonski are waging a battle
over the center post. George Ford,
although in the starting lineup of
both games to date, has not cinched
his position at forward, and Russ
Oliver must deliver the goods to
maintain his berth at guard.
