Battle State



At Lansing


Nine Varsity
Stars Will Aid
Swim Tonight
Mann Shows Confidence
By Entering Degener As
Exhibitor Only
Sophomores To Dive
One Man Only To Start In
Breast- And Back-Stroke
Nine Varsity swimmers accompa-
nied by Coach Matt Mann will drive
to East Lansing today for their open-
ing dual meet of the 1934 season
with Michigan State tonight.
That Mann is very sure of winning
the meet without any difficulty is
shown by the fact that he is having
Dick Degener, the nation's premier
diver, give an exhibition while two
sophomore divers compete for points
in the meet.
The Michigan team, weak in the
breast- and back-stroke events, will
have only a single entry in each of
these. Dick Gage will swim the
breast-stroke and Bill Boice will com-
pete in the back.
In the 50- and 100-yard sprints
Michigan will be better represented
with Manley Osgood and Dick Blake
competing in both. Blake was one of
the stars in the recent handicap meet
among the sprinters and should turn
in at least one victory tonight.
Captain Jim Cristy and Henry
Kamienski, a made-over sprinter, are
set to place one-two in both the 220-
and 440-yard free style events. Cristy
was kept under wraps in the handi-
cap meet but will be out to break a
record or two tonight.
In the diving Mann said that he
was taking three men, Degener,
Derland Johnson and Ned Diefendorf
to the Capitol city, but would prob-
ably depend on the two sophomores,
Johnson and Diefendorf, of whom
great things are expected in the
next two years, to take the first two
places in the competition while al-
lowing Degener to give the Spartan
fans an exhibition of the form which
has carried him to the top among
the world's divers.
For the four men composing the
200-yard free-style relay team Mann
chose Cristy, Kamienski, Blake and
.Osgood. These four constitute Mich-
igan's "broken-leg" relay outfit,
which is to be revamped during the
second semester if some of the sprint-
ers become eligible.
The medley relay team will be com-
posed of Bill Boice, backstroke; Dick
Gage, breast-stroke; and either Kam-
ienski or Blake swimming the free
Verberg To Fight
Tonight In Finals
Charles Verberg, University of
Michigan boxer, will meet Eddie
Mack, Detroit, in one of the 13 bouts
in the finals of the Ann Arbor Golden
Goves tournament to be held at the
local Armory tonight.
Winners of tonight's bouts will re-
ceive gold charms while the runners-
up are to get silver awards. In addi-
tion, the winners will have all their
expenses paid to Gc_:d Rapids for
the state finals to be held in that
Other bouts of interest to local fans
will be the battle between Buzz-Saw
McCleery and Paul Elias, Detroit, in
the finals of the open welterweight
division and the novice bantam battle

between Paul Bradbury, Dexter, and
Ed Scott, Ann Arbor.
Students in German schools and
universities will be the object of an
extensive temperance campaign to be
put on under auspices of the Nazi

Winners In Speed Skating Races



Varsity Cage Team
Continues Faults Int

Basketball Lament
* * *
Down at the foot of State Street
There's a flat and dreary plain,
Where the basketball laddies gather
To the tune of this sad refrain:



-Associated Press Prioto
Jimmy Webster left), of St.
Paul, won the national speed
skating title in the senior men's
division at the championship
races in Minneapolis. Dorothy
Franey (above), also of St. Paul,
took the women's title, after de-
feating Kit Klein of Buffalo, the
defending title-holder.

"The boards are hard and tough on the feet
As up and down we go,
And the ball and the ring will never connect
So we chant our song of woe."
I went down to the old Yost Field House
At the bottom of State Street hill,
Near the Michigan Castle of Horrors
Where the wrestlers grapple and mill.
I watched the moaning cagers
As they went up and down the floor
They went up and down, and down and up
And then they did it some more.
The tragic part of it all was
That it didn't alter the score!
On the sidelines I saw a sorrowful man
Who watched with tears in his eyes;
With sorrow he'll go to the grave
For I think he'll be sad till he dies.
So I asked him just what his name was
"Cappon," he said with a grin,
Proving no doubt he could take it
And take it right on the chin.
"Some day," he said, "these laddies
Will start to hit the basket
And you'll be surprised but I sadly fear
That I will blow a gasket!"
Meanwhile I heard the song of woe
Ring out through the desolate gym
"Oh up and down the floor we go-"
(And I was sorry for him)
"-The ball and the basket will never meet
As up and down we go
The boards are oh so hard on the feet
And nobody loves us no mo'!"

Coach lrankiin Cappon sent his
Varsity basketball squad through a
gruelling scrimmage yesterday in an
effort to get them out of the slump
they have been suffering.
Cappon had a first team composed
of Plummer and Rudness as for-
wards, Jablonski at center, Tamagno
and Joslin as guards work out
against several combinations but the
Varsity continued to show the le-
thargic style that has characterized
it all season.
Early in the practice, the Varsity
showed signs of coming out of it but
later sank back to the mediocre
The scrimmages were marked by
faulty passing and unsteady head-
work with poor shooting added on
the side.
The team returned from Chicago
in a better physical than mental
shape and the players yesterday
showed the mental strain they had
been through because of the slump.
Coach Cappon returned yesterday
after staying over to scout the
Northwestern and Ohio State teams
in action.

Eleven Relays
F eature13
A. A. U. Meet
New Program Intended To
Stimulate Track Interest
Throughout State
When the 1934 Michigan A.A.U.
Indoor Meet comes to Yost Field
House Saturday night, February 3,
track fans from all over the state will
be treated to an innovation in the
A.A.U. program; the substitution of
one-mile relays in place of less in-
teresting open events such as the
mile walk, broad jump, and 35-pound
shot put.
The A.A.U. committee, presided
over by Lloyd W. Olds, believes that
a relay festival wil give the meet
more interest than it has formerly
evoked from the general public
With eleven relays on the revised
card, only eight open events remain,
in which individuals will compete.
These events are the 60-yard dash,
65-yard high and low hurdles, mile
run, two-mile run, pole vault, high
jump, and shot put.
Big Ten Relay Arranged
A mile relay betwen three Big Ten
schools is being arranged. Michigan
and Ohio State have already entered
this event and it is expected that Illi-
nois will send the third team, al-
though it is indefinite as yet.
Other three team relay champion-
ships are the M.I.A.A., Michigan-On-
tario A.A., Michigan Junior Colleges,
Greater Detroit Colleges, Michigan
Club, State and Detroit Y.M.C.A.'s
and State Class A and B High
Coach Charlie Hoyt has entered
various Michigan tracksters in the
open events, but whether they will
compete or not is entirely up to each
individual. Exams may wreck the
Michigan array.
In the 60-yard dash: Ward, Kemp,
Barnes, and Ladd; 65-yard high
hurdles: Ward, Kemp and Pantlind;
65-yard low hurdles: Lamb; mile:
Childs, Gooding, and Goreman; two-
mile: Alex and Howell; pole vault:
Doullard, Hunn, and Jeannette; high
jump: Ward and Chaplan; shot put:
Blumenfeld, Alexander, Bacon, Sil-
verman, and Viergiver; mile relay:
Ellerby, Smith, Lemen, with the
fourth man undecided as yet.

I-M Building To B e
Opened To Co-Eds
Co-ed athletic stock will probably
boom within the next couple of
weeks, as the Intramural staff has
announced that the women athletes
of the campus may avail themselves
of the facilities of one of the great-
est plants in the world if they wish
to play squash.
Not only have the squash courts
been opened to their use, but if they
care to organize into a class to learn
the technique and skill of the game,
instruction will be offered them.
The building wil be available for
the women during the morning hours
of the week, or should they desire it,
they may use the courts on Saturday
This is the first time that the
women will have a change to play
squash, as the Barbour gym facilities
were not adapted to this type of ac-
tivity. All who are interested are to
sign up with Miss Hilda Burr at Bar-
bour gym as soon as possible. As soon
as enough people enter, play will
stdrt. The great number of squash
courts at the Intramural Building
insures playing opportunities for even
a very large group.

Grid Talent Sought
By Gopher Coach
MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 23. -(IP)-
They say advertising reveals hidden
sources of marketing.
Bernie Bierman, coach at Minn'~
sota, isn't interested in markets but
he is using "want ads" to try to
reach any good football talent that

may be hiding about the campus.
He, i t using the students' daily
newspaper to pursue his search, and
to make the escape from obscurity
easier for any timid gridiron embryo
he invites those responding to meet
him personally for semi-weekly cont:--
ferences on how it is done.
This at least should set the stage
for one of those story books affaiLs
about the lad who leaped to stardom
after being enticed from seclusion.
