Enter Three Events
A galaxy of most of the amateur
stars of Michigan will open the 1934
track season here on the night of
Feb. 3, in what is expected to be the
outstanding cinder event of the year.
Stars from over 30 Universities, col-
leges and high schools in the state
will convene in Yost Field House at
that time to compete for honors in
the annual State A.A.U. meet.
Fans who have been only lukewarm
toward the sport because they be-
lieved it did not provide enough mass
competition, will be given a new deal
in this year's meet.
The program will be pretty largely
a relay carnival, 11 mile relays hav-
ing been arranged by Lloyd W. Olds,
Chairman of the track and field com-
mittee and track coach at Michigan
In revising the program, the com-
mittee decided to take out such
events as have provided something of
a drag to interest, such as the mile
walk, broad jump and 35-pound
weight throw, then build it up with
relays. The plan is similar to that
followed in the East where programs,
made up largely of invitational races,
draw packed houses. It is believed
the same result will be seen here, and
that the program will have a stimu-
lating influence on track all over
Michigan. In time this program will
prove the classic sports event of the
state, the committee feels.
Coach Charlie H o y t, Michigan
track mentor, has entered a strong
team in the meet. Such stars as
Willis Ward, Cass Kemp, Boyd Pant-
lind, Al Blumenfeld, Jim Bacon,
Neree Alix, Rod Howell, Jack Childs,
Dick McManus and Dave Hunn,'
among others, will compete for the
Maize and Blue if the strain of
exams doesn't prove to much for

clude Ward, Kemp, Barnes, Lamb

Renovated Team To Plav
Twice In Examination
The Varsity basketball squad have
hung up their uniforms temporarily
as they tackle another, and perhaps
more difficult task, that of semester
examinations The cagers will hold
no regular practice, but are expected
to keep in training during the ex-
amination period as they have ,two
games on the schedule immediately
The Varsity will journey to East;
Lansing on Feb. 10 where they will
meet the Spartans of Michigan State
in a return engagement. On Monday,
Feb. 12. Purdue will open the second
semester Conference schedule at Yost
The Wolverines will be attempting
to avenge the 26-25 defeat that the
Spartans handed them at the field
house in December. With 'Coach
Cappon's revamped lineup maintain-
ing the ability it showed against
Ohio State Friday night, it would
not be surprising if the Maize and
Blue even this season's series with the
Michigan will get one of its hard-
est tests of the season against the
Boilermakers as Coach Ward Lam-
bert has developed another outstand-
ing quintet down at Bloomington.
With a record of four victories and
no defeats in Conference competi-
tion, the Boilermakers are perched at
the top of the Big Ten cage race.
Iowa, in second place, has a chance
at the title held jointly last year by
Northwestern and Ohio State.
Cappon's new 1 i n e u p showed
marked improvement over anything
the Varsity has displayed this year.
All four of the starting sophomores,
Joslin, Tomagno, Jablonski, a n d
Rudness, showed that with a little
more experience, they could give any
team in the league a tough battle.
Capt. Ted Petoskey,: who was
benched along with Allen and Tess-
mer as the caers lined up against
the Buckeyes, broke into the game in
the first half as a substitute and by
his aggressive play, demonstrated
that he will not be Qn the bench
when the schedule is resumed against
Dick Joslin, the lIanky sophomore
who played in his first Varsity game
Friday night, showed considerable
defensive and offensive ability before
he was forced from the game by way
of the personal foul route. It appears
that he has clinched a definite place
in the Michigan lineup.

FENCING, for the time being, is a dead sport at the University of Mich-
igan due to the straitened circumstances of the Board in Control of
Athletics. The discussion yesterday led to a unanimous decision to uphold
the previous ruling on cutting out fencing, gymnastics, and cross country.
Finis fencing? At the saving as The Daily said in the beginning, of approxi-
No more news was forthcoming last night on the Yale-Michigan
coaching staff question. Oosterbaan and Blott have been reported as con-
tacted by Yale authorities, but no confirmations were given. Oosterbaan
and Blott would be valuable additions to the Yale coaching staff or to
any coaching staff (editorial opinion). On authoritative information, I have
it that each coach has been offered one thousand dollars a year more than
the salaries here.

Those two items are the most important sports facts which have

T HE BASKETBALL TEAM won its second conference victory of the season
by defeating a fifth-place Ohio State outfit here Friday night 32-38. The
cagers showed greatly improved form and hopes for the remaining contests
after the exam period are running high. They cannot wind up very high,
in the conference standings, but the general feeling is that the quintet has
found itself and is headed for more victories when the season is resumed.

Tuesday night, the hockey team lost its first home contest to Sarnia,
Ont., the leading team in the O.H.A. Senior B league by two goals to one.
Three games were dropped by the pucksters on trips a week ago . . . two
to Minnesotoa and one to M.C.M. at Houghton, Mich. Both teams will
journey to Ann Arbor to give the Wolverines an opportunity for revenge:
Minnesota will appear Feb. 23 and 24, while the Miners will be here March
2 and 3.

THE MICHIGAN WRESTLERS have two victories tucked securely under
their belts. Northwestern and Michigan State have fallen victim to the
grapplers so far this season. Wrestling is the banner sport here this winter
due to the fact that the National Intercollegiates will be held here in March.
Whether Michigan wrestlers will have much of a chance is yet to be seen.

Coach Matt Mann has another great combination down in the Intra-
mural pool this year. Headed by Jim Cristy, outstanding distance free-
styler, Mann has an all-star combination which will probably take the
Big Ten title again without much difficulty, also probably have a good
chance in the National Intercollegiates. The first meet this week with
Michigan State resulted in an overwhelming victory for Michigan.
gram will consist of swimming as the
'majorattraction, with ping pongin-
terclass badminton, and interclas
basketball as additional features.
Fencing will also carry over.
Before the old schedule is com-
pleted, the semi-final a n d final
rounds of'the Intramural tourney

with Martha Cook, while Betsy Bar-
bour will meet the winner of the
Delta Gamma - Kappa Delta game.
The Class B section schedule reads:
Jordan 1 vs. Gamma Phi Beta, and
Alpha Chi Omega vs. the winner of
the Theta Phi Alpha - Jordon 2 battle.
Tuesday and Thursday evenings
will be. devoted to running off time
trials for the Intramural and Inter-
collegia'9 t e 1 e g r a p h i c swimming
meets. .The Intramural races, will
take' place in the Union pool on
March 20, with the Intercollegiate
following a couple of days later.
Everyone entering the speed events
in Intercollegiates must pass a time
trial, as it is the only method which
can be used to choose the teams. The
first sixteen are eligible for competi-
tion, aid any one may try as many
times as she wishes to better her time
Only two speed events and the div-
ing will be open to any one entrant.

A basketball festival is something
new along the line of celebrations,
but Fred East, athletic director at
University high school, Ann Arbor,
is inviting boys from 25 B, C, and
D class schools to take part in one
to be held at 'the Intramural Build-

mine the possibilities of a classifica-
tion basis for competition, especially
for those boys not taking part in
The teams will compete within
their own class and each team will
play one game. The winning team
of each game will be awarded five
points. Each school will add the
points made by its class teams for a
school total. The games will be stag-
gered as much as possible so that
each school will have one of its teams
playing throughout the day.
The boys will be allowed the priv-
ilege of swimming in the Intramural
Pool from 3 to 6 p. m. A supper will
be served at the rate of 30 cents
per boy at 6. Speakers for the eve-
