Michigan Takes
Five Matches To
Spartans' Three
Gordon Reavely Scores A
Lone Fall Of Meet Over
Spoden In Unlimited
Ponto Wins At 175

Wolverines End Basketball Season In Game With Indiai


Makes Finale

Austin Breaks Wolverine
Streak At 126 Lbs. With
Win From Rubin
Coach Cliff Keen's wrestlers re-
peated an early season victory yester-
day afternoon in the Field House by
downing Michigan State with a 15 to
11 score.
Michigan scored five victories to
one for the Spartans, but Gordon
Reavely, the Spartan heavyweight,
gained the lone fall of the meet by
pinning John Spoden in six minutes
and fifty seconds.
Keen tried some strategy by
switching Louie Parker, scheduled to
enter at 175 lbs and Hilton Ponto,
the regular in the 165-lb. division,
and his move was highly successful,
both winning their bouts.
After Parker had defeated Harry
Martin, the Spartan 165-lb. entrant,
Ponto put the meet on ice with an
easy win over Fred Knudson. Ponto
took an early advantage, and never
lost it, piling up a nine minutes,
thirty second advantage.
Parker piled up a four minute ad-
vantage in the first extra period after
neither had gained an advantage in
the first two minutes, using a foot
ride. After Martin had been given a
referee's advantage Parker broke it
in less than ten seconds by sitting out
and took his own advantage to win
with a 7:37 margin..
In the heavyweight match Reavely
took an immediate advantage with
an arm drag, but Spoden broke it
to take his own advantage, and then
lost it. The advantage changed sev-
eral times until Reavely finally
worked into a three-quarter Nelson
hold to pin the Wolverine at 6:50.
Seymour Rubin fell victim to Floyd
Austin, to lose the first match for
the Wolverine's in the 126-lb. divi-
sion for the year. Austin, whose lone
defeat of the season was at the
handW of Joe Oakley, the regular
WoIe ne in the 126-lb. class, piled
up a, four-minute time advantage
after several quick advantage ex-
In the 118-lb. division Don Fiero
scored a victory over Lovell Genson
to make amends for the draw to
which they fought in the earlier
match. Fiero took the advantage at
20 seconds with a bar-arm and al-
most, pinned the Spartan 'with a
half-nelson at five minutes, but
failed, to win with a two minute, 22
second advantage.
Jack Harrod got a bad break in
the 145-lb. division when he slipped
out of a pin hold which he had taken
on Walter Jacobs, the Spartan, and
lost his advantage. Both started out
fast, with Jacobs getting the first
advantage, but Harrod broke it to
take his pin hold, losing it at eight
minutes, Jacobs finally winning with
a slim 18 second margin.
Captain Art Mosier had little dif-
ficulty in defeating Perry Conant, the
State entry at 155 lbs. with a 4:14
advantage. After neither had gained
an advantage in the first two min-
utes Mosier was first down, but broke
the hold after 50 seconds, and kept
his own advantage in the second pe-
Seymour Freedman scored another
easy victory in the 135-lb. class over
Harold Gates. The Wolverine took an
immediate advantage, and worked
after that for a fall, piling up a 5:46
The meet concluded the Wolverine
dual meet season. Coach Keen will
enter a complete squad in the Con-
ference meet which is to be held at
University of Indiana next week-end.
118 lbs., Fiero (M) defeated Gen-
son (S). Advantage, 2:22.

tin (S). Advantage, 7:37.
175 lbs., Ponto (M) defeated Knud-
son (S). Advantage, 9:30.
Heavyweight, Reavely (S) pinned
Spoden (M) with three-quarter nel-
son. Time, 6:50.
Shooters from sections as distant
as Washington, Canada and Penn-
sylvania attended the interstate trap
tournament at Kansas City.

Wrestling Varsity's Captain, Art
Mosier, who wrestles at 155, con-
cluded his college mat career today,
by gaining a decision over his Michi-
gan State opponent. The Nationals
still remain, however, and Mosier is
a certain entry. In the matter of
matches won and lost, Mosier is the
team standout.

Conclude Court
Careeer Monday
Indiana May Gain Second
Conference Position By
Victory Over Michigan
The Michigan basketball team will
climax the worst season a Maize and
Blue squad has experienced in many
a year, Monday night when Indiana
will be met in the final game at the
Field House.
Three Wolverines will wear their
Maize and Blue uniforms for the last
time. They are Capt. Ted Petoskey,'
Fred Allen, and Estil Tessmer. Cap't.'
'Pete' was the hardest worker on the
squad; despite the somewhat futile
efforts of the team, he never quit
The Hoosiers will invade the Mich-
igan stronghold with a team that can
climb into second place if it defeats
the Wolverines and Northwestern
loses its final game. In an early en-
counter between the two teams, In-
diana thoroughly tamed the Wolve-
rine, winning by a 29-18 ,score. How-
ever, if the local's play against the
Hoosiers is characterized by the same
dash and fire they exhibited against
Wisconsin and Northwestern, a close
game will be in store for the fans.
Kehrt and Weir of Indiana are
among the high scorers in the Con-
ference and will bear plenty of
watching by the Wolverines. At
Bloomington, in the previous meeting
between the teams, Kehrt's 13 points
provided the I-oosier margin of vic-
Cappon will probably start Joslin
at center, Plummer and Fishman at
the forward posts, and Petoskey and
Tomagno, guards, with Ford, Allen,
Tessmer and the basketball player
with the football tactics, Regeczi,
sure to see action if the "regulars"
don't click.
Although the Indiana game will
Inark the official close of the season,
the returning squad men together
with the better freshman prospects
will begin practice at the Intramural
building. In this way, Coach Cap-
Pon will be able to get an early start
moulding his team for the 1934-35
The returning men who will par-
ticipate in the spring drill are Dick
Joslin, Manny Fishman, Al Plummer,
George Rudness, John Jablonski, Art
Evans, King Lewis, Bob Hill, Don
Nichols, Dana Seeley, and Howard
Levine. Of the other returning men,
Clayt Paulson, George Ford, Russ
Oliver, and John Regeczi will be busy
with baseball, while Bill Borgmann,
Bob Kositchek, and Chelso Tomagno,
will be going through spring football
State Takes First
In Billiard Tourney
Ranking s e v e n t h in the final
standings, the five-man team repre-
senting Michigan in the recent Third
Annual Intercollegiate Key Shot
Billiard Tournament compiled a to-
tal of 188 out of a possible 1,000,
completed tabulations show. The
trophy emblematic of the national
team championship, which for the
past two years has been held by
Michigan, was won by Michigan
State with 380 points.
Purdue finished second to Michi-
gan State with 331 and Wisconsin
was a poor third. The other five
teams entered in the tournament
finished in the following order, Min-

nesota 239, Brown 230, Chicago 220,

The LAst Roundup. . . .
IF YOU HAVE TEARS, prepare to shed them now. They are heading for
the last roundup, those poor old Mourning Michigans. Tomorrow night,
Michigan's '33-'34 basketball team will take the floor for the last time. They
will be playing against Indiana, a pretty fair Big Ten team. They are not
conceded much of a chance to win.
Nevertheless, the boys will get in there and fight like fiends. They
always have, and have seldom gotten anywhere in particular. Down through
the humiliation of defeat with two very very bad lickings from Purdue
standing out like hummocks in the level plain of usual defeats, they have
not been able to do anything but grind their teeth and remark that there
are other years. And there will be.
One day the Michigans will humble the proud Purdues, and I personally
hope that they do a good thorough job. I also hope that I will be there to
see it, but this I doubt.
SLIGHTLY MORE PATHETIC than the scene in the lockerroom after a
beating is the scene after a victory. If you could only see the expression
of those bruised, flushed faces. There is real joy there. They have vindicated
themselves. They are a real basketball team . . . until the next game,
~ And if you, you Michigan spectators, only knew how hard the lads took
a defeat, you would refrain from making such unkind cracks as "Five for
basketball!" after the boys have taken the floor for the start of the second
They talk about all this character-building stuff in connection with
Intercollegiate Athletics. Well, they may be right, but I put forth the
proposition that playing on a losing team is ten times as beneficial, to the
soul as playing on a winning one. That return from Moscow probably helped
out Napoleon's general character a good deal. These lads have returned
from Moscow time and again.
ND THEN LOOK at our friend Franklin C. Cappon. An ordinary coach
would long since have lost any sense of humor he might have possessed.
Cappy hasn't. He can still joke about that basketball team of his and their
record. You sit there and hear him make cracks about it with the peculiar
feeling of knowing all the time that the thing he is joking about is really
very, very serious to him. It's just being a good sport, that's all.
