1 To 0 Victory
Each Team Gets A Single
Fall; Mosier Loses To
Landrum Wins Fall
Ponto Wins Over Benca,
To Decide Victory For?
By SIDNEY FRANKEL
The Michigan wrestling team
opened its season with a 17 to 11
victory over Northwestern in a dual
meet last night at the Yost Field
House before art audience of 350
The Wolverines showed surprising
strength in the lower weights and
almost a comparative weakness in
the heavier divisions. Ponto was the
only Michigan man to win a heavier
weight and beat Bence in the heavy-
weight bout by a time advantage of
Michigan took the lead in the 118
pound match when Jimmy Landrum
pinned L. Williams in 5:53. Lan-
drum managed to get the advantage
right at the start and, although Wil-
liams played a stalling game, shortly
after the first half of the bout Lan-
drum got a bar arm and a half nel-
son and fell the Northwestern man.
In the 126 pound battle, Joe Oak-
ley of Michigan won over Captain
Seiferth of the Wildcats by a time
advantage of 4:48. Seiferth played
a stalling battle at the beginning for
the first few minutes, but Oakley got
behind him and managed to hold
him until a half a minute before the
end of the match.
In the 135 class, Freedman showed
better form than. Bronson, got the
advantage shortly after the start of
the bout and held it most of the
way and won by a time advantage of
Harrod of Michigan won a time
advantage over Hanley in the 145
pound match by 4:55. Toward the
close of the bout, Harrod almost fell
the Northwestern man, but time
enough was not left and the referee
called a fall just after the bell for
the end of the battle sounded.
One of the outstanding matches of
the evening was that between Cap-
tain Mosier and D. Kaufman of
Northwestern, won by the latter by
a time advantage of 1:40. Both men
were evenly matched at the begin-
ning but the Wildcat managed to get
the advantage at the close and held
it for enough time.
Horsting of Northwestern won a
close decision over Parker with a
time advantage of 1:03.
Mandola pinned Lawton of Mich-
igan with a half-nelson and a crotch
hold in 4:24.
The heavyweight bout proved to
be the deciding match of the evening
when Ponto won a time advantage
over Benca by 7:20. Ponto took the
place of John Spoden who was in the
hospital because of a bad case of
boils. Benca was also a replacement
and took the place of C. Sutton who
had been scheduled for this battle.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This column is not to be taken entirely
seriously. While it is true that the Board in Control has refused the

the ordinary budget runs well over $300, also untrue that the

MADISON, Wis., Jan. 13 - (P) -
Wisconsin won its first Western Con-
ference basketball game here tonight,
defeating Michigan, 34 to 23.
The Wolverines took a three point
lead at the start on Allen's free throw
and Petoskey's pot shot but the Wis-
consin offense then started to func-
tion and the Badgers rolled up 11
points in a row.
The Badgers played a tight de-
fensive game that allowed Michigan
only two field goals in the first half,
which ended with Wisconsin in front

Inter class Invitations
Invitations for Interclass basket-
ball will be issued after one more
week of play, according to announce-
ments coming from the Administra-
tion Department yesterday. Inter-
class play, for the first time, is be-
ing based on the showings of the
co-eds in Intramural competition,
and is on a purely invitational ba-
Elizabeth Cooper heads the com-
mittee which has been watching ev-
ery game, spotting prospects for
class teams. Her assistants number
eight, two from each class.
This week-end notices will be sent
to the various houses who have mem-
bers playing on their teams con-
sidered as possible selections by the
Interclass committee. Any women
mentioned in these notices should
make every effort to be in the next
game played by their house, as the
committee has a chance to watch
them in only two games.
The schedule should be finished as
far as the semi-finals by examina-
tion time. These final rounds will
be played off at the beginning of
the new semester. Two days of the
week will be devoted to Interclass
after the exam period, and the rest
of the time may be used to complete
the Intramural race.
Any women who would like to try
out for Interclass but are not able
to get onto their house teams be-
cause they have already filled all
positions are asked to get in touch
with either Miss Marie Hartwig, fac-
ulty advisor of the tourney, or Mar-
garet Arnold, who will arrange for
them to play.

The University of Michigan squash
racquets team yesterday handed a
Detroit Racquets Club team a 5 to 0
trimming in the Intramural courts.
Although the games were all close
the Detroiters failed to take a single
The feature match of the engage-
ment was between Ernie Smith of the
Michigan team and George Reindel,
No. 1 for the Racquets club. After
dropping the first match to Reindel,
state champion in the event, Smith
came back to take the next three
games with hard drives and accurate
placements, winning them 15-9, 15-
14, and 15-10.
Ray Fiske, playing James L. Stand-
ish, Jr., Detroit sportsman and sev-
eral times state amateur golf cham-
pion, got off to a fast start but was
extended in winning 15-8, 15-12, 12-
15, 15-17, 15-8. Marvin Niehuss also
got off to a fast start, winning his
match three games to one, as did
Ernie Vick, who won over Towar.
Earl Riskey was forced to extra
points twice in winning his match
from Johnson, 3-1, taking the first
game 18-15 and the third, 17-15.
The University team will meet the

day for a return match with the Rac-

Alix, Lamb, IHutmn,
AND SO WE HAVE THE anonymous fencers. If anyone asks them they
cannot say, "We are the Michigan fencing team." All that belongs
to the halcyon days of yore. Now the most they can put out is an ignomi-
nous, "We are fencers from Michigan." At least, it is believed that that
answer is still permissible.
I suppose too that they will have to use fictitious individual names,
as Monsieur Le Frogsticker, Monsieur Le Toadjabber, or what have you. They
will have to use masks and long beards to eliminate the possibility of their
recognition as Michigan men. I might also recommend that they cultivate
foreign accents. It would really be awful, you know, if anyone found out.
Ah, shades of the days when fencing was in flower . . . long before
these new-fangled things like football and basketball were even thought
of in the ravings of an idiot ! Why then a couple of the boys used to have a
secret fencing meet behind the Luxembourg, and (Sacrebleu!) used to draw
a crowd of half the city and the municipal guard, which were about as
troublesome and ubiquitous as the modern State Police. And all this without
benefit of advertising.
SHUTTERS WOULD CREAK and windows pop open at the clash of tem-
pered steel on tempered steel, and the tramp of military boots on rough
cobblestones to the eccentric rhythms of the charge, parry, and riposte.
Sparks would fly from the blades, gleaming in the pale rays of the early
Paris dawn, and fat burghers would stir from their beds knowing by the
sound that the boys were at it again, and it was time to get up and begin
the day's money-chase.
What a spectacle! Finally M. Le Frogsticker steps in a pool of blood
left over from yesterday's battle, slips, and M. Le Toadjabber sends the
cold, gleaming steel through him, withdrawing the dripping, red blade
which steams in the damp morning air. It is all over with M. Le Frog-
sticker, and a couple of flunkies remove the carcass on a shutter. What a
gate you could have drawn on a battle like that!
And there's an idea. Make fencing self-supporting . . . make it almost
as lucrative as football. End all this bitter discussion about supporting the
sport. The answer is very obvious. All you have to do is remove the masks
and padding from the combatants, and remove the buttons from the foils.

The results of the first track time-
trials of the season yesterday after-
noon were termed as encouraging by
Coach Charlie Hoyt, Varsity mentor.
Although none of the times turned
in were record-breaking, they indi-
cated that with a little more train-
ing, Michigan will be represented by
a strong outfit on the cinders in 1934.
Following the trials, Coach Hoyt
said, "Michigan should have a strong
dual meet team this year. We've
got one or two good men in nearly
Harvey Smith, a newcomer who
transferred from Illinois, turned in
an excellent performance in the half-
mile event. He traversed the distance
in the excellent early-season time of
1:58.5. . Captain Harold Thomas El-
lerby, running the half for the first
time, came in second with a time of
a little over two minutes.
In his regular event, the, quarter-
mile, Captain Ellerby was the out-
standing runner. He won the event
from Ed Lemen and Harvey Patton,
a newcomer, with a time of :51.4. Le-
men and Patton were both under 52
In the absence of Willis Ward, who
was in Grand Rapids on a speaking
engagement, Boyd Pantlind had

the 65 highs in :8.4 and the 65 lows
in :7.6. Bob Lamb showed prospects
of developing into a winner in this

the 60-yard dash, edging out the vet-

Field Events Strong
The results of the shot put and
pole vault were especially encourag-
ing, and indicate that the Wolverines
will have strength in these events.
Al Blumenfeld put the shot 44 feet,
9%/4 inches, to beat out Bacon and
Alexander. Dave Hunn, a sophomore
won the vault with a leap of 12 feet,
6 inches. Coach Hoyt expects him to
do 13 feet inside of a week.
Jack Childs, veteran distance run-
ner, broke the tape in the mile event
in 4:37.8. In the two-mile, Neree
Alix, Lockport, N. Y., sophomore, sur-
prised the crowd by leading Rod
Howell to the finish. His time was

NEW YORK, Jan. 13-(W) -Fat
and 40 he may be, but Babe Ruth's
part-time job with the New York
Yankees will net him about $35,000
That's a drop of around 55 per cent
from the record top of $80,000 he
received for his labors in 1930 and
1931 but it will buy a lot of groceries
and still leaves Ruth the highest paid
performer in the game.
The Bambino will not sign his
contract until next Monday but all
the details were agreed to when Ruth
and Col. Jacob Ruppert went into
a brief conference at the Colonel's
brewery yesterday. Where it used
to take two months to get the big
fellow in line, Col. Ruppert wound up
this conference in a few minutes.
He mentioned his price, probably
$30,000. Th Babe countered with a
higher ante, possibly $40,000. Then,
without further argument, a com-
promise was effected, in all likeli-
hood at $35,000, although the pre-
cise sum won't be known until Mon-

several weeks ago to try to settle
the salary question as early as pos-

FRESHMAN FENCING CHAMP
Although Jane O'Farrell, '37, ex-
cells in all sports, her specialty is
fencing. She studied under Veda De
Tuscan at the Detroit Civic Theater
and after a winter's training entered
competition. Her skill enabled her
to win the Junior State fencing tour-
nament as well as reach the finals in
the senior one. She will continue
practice in that chivalric sport of
speed and grace.
The date for the annual Western
Conference Track and Field meet has
been set. Evanston, Illinois, will be
the scene of activity, and the days
for the event will be May 18 and 19.
