HEADLINE on an Associated Press
story. ."Primo-Baer Go Be-
lieved Near." Yes, but who is the
citizen that believes it? Get out the
gold bricks, boys and that title to
the George Washington bridge and
let's get after this character.
The story goes even further and
says that Madison Square Garden i
thinking of promoting it and the
fight would be some time this sum-
Well, this Madison Square Garden
business sort of makes one wonder
That management. has taken quite
a lacing recently out of the prize
fight industry. Slowly but surely the
cash customers have been getting
wise to this heavyweight title busi-

AND justwoffhand, I'd say that
APrimo was about ready to go
back to his circus after that Lough-
ran fiasco down in Florida recently
Of course, only about ten people or
so saw the fight but lots of others
heard about it and how many citi-
zens will lay plenty silver on the
line to see Clinching Carnera bear-
hug 15 rounds again?
Anyway even if a miracle did hap-
pen and the logical contender met
the Italian, the latter wouldn't be
able to use successfully the tactics
which he employed against Lough-

you. Personally, I should say that

about as remote as the legalization of
beer in State Street restaurants right
across from the campus. All of which
is plenty remote.

THEY are having a tall argunent
right now in Detroit about the
fluke goal that won the title for the
Red Wings. It was fired by Pettinger
fromfar out on the ice, a high loop-
ing shot that apparently the Chicago
goalie lost sight of. Anyway it hit
the top of the net, bounced against
the Blackhawk goal tender's head
and into the net.
They have been arguing for days
now whether the goalie saw the shot
and ducked, thinking it was wide, or
whether he just didn't see it. Fun-
ny, nobody has thought of asking the
goalie yet.
Farmer Objects To
Football Emphasis
BOSTON, March 13. - Because of
the great demand for more victories
and more action in athletic contests
some college and university coaches
have resorted to obtaining athletes
at any cost, according to Malcolm
Farmer, director of athletics at Yale
This statement is quite apropos at
this time because there is a move
among the sport fans of the Yale
alumni to engage some prominent
Big Ten coach to build up Yale's
athletic standing. At one time the
alumni had strong designs on Mich-
igan's Kipke.
"Today," continued Farmer, "it
seems to be necessary to win almost
all the games in order to convince
the graduate body and people gen-
erally that the athletic season has
been successful. A college coach can-

not hold his job unless he wins al-
most all the games.
"I am convinced that the coaches
.of this country do not want to prose-
lyte, but some of them are practically
forced into it, That, it seems to me,
is a pretty sorry situation. College
athletics are for the benefit of the
undergraduates, and I think we
should preserve the games for them.
If we aren't careful, we are going to
spoil the game for the boys."
Columbia (Iowa) College appa-
rently is a springboard for ambi-
tious football coaches. Elmer 'Lay-
den, of Notre Dame; Gus Dirais, of
Detroit, and Eddie Anderson, of
Holy Cross, all made their starts
at the Dubuque school.

Wolverine Wing
Awarded Ber th
On First Team
Co-Captain Elect Is Chosen
As Captain Of Sextet;
MacCollum Honored
Placed At Defense
Jewell, David, Chapman
Are Granted Honorable
Mention By Experts
S Johnny Sherf, co-captain elect of
the Michigan hockey team for 1934-
35, was named at left wing on the
mythical Midwestern Intercollegiate
All-Star hockey team selected recent-
. ly by Eddie Lowrey, coach at Michi-
gan, Frank Pond, coach at Minne-
sota, Art Thomsen, coach at Wiscon-
sin, Bert Noblet, coach at Michigan
Tech, and Jack Rice, hockey critic
_ of the Houghton Mining Gazette.
The Wolverine wing was further
honored by being named as captain
of the first team.
Red MacCollum, Wolverine de-
fenseman, was awarded the position
of right defense on the second team
selected by the experts. Other Mich-
igan pucksters who received honora-
ble mention were: Johnny Jewell,
goal; Ted Chapman, defense; and
George David, wing.
Vote Is Unanimous
Sherf and Spencer Wagnild, Min-
nesota defenseman, were the only
two players of the 20 selected to re-
ceive a unanimous vote of the ex-
perts, each getting 25 points for their
respective positions. The final se-
lections were based on five points for
a first team selection and three for a
second team berth.
Although MacCollum played only
during the second semester, he gave
the other defensemen a battle for a
defense position on the first team.
Bill Southworth, Wisconsin, just
nosed out Phil LaBatte, Gopher cap-
tain, for the other first team defense
berth and MacCollum was close to
LaBatte in the voting. LaBatte was
named captain of the second team.
Goalie Race Is Close
The race for the position of goalie
was close with George Clausen, Min-
nesota, beating out Ed Maki, Michi-
* gan Tech, by six points for the first
team berth. Jewell was right be-
hind Maki in the poll but had to be
content with honorable mention.
Only the four, outstanding teams
in the midwest were represented on
the mythical teams. Minnesota,
champions of the Big Ten, led the
ether teams by placing three each on
the first and second teams, and one
honorable mention.
Michigan, Wisconsin and Michigan
Tech split even on the first team,
each squad placing one man. The
Miners placed two on the second
team while MacCollum's d e f e n s e
berth gained one second team posi-
tion for the Wolverines.
The Wolverines, the Badgers and
the Technicians were tied in the
honorable mention list, each placing
two puckmen. Minnesota's lone win-
ner of honorable mention was Russ
Gray, midget forward of the Gopher
"pony line."
The Coliseum skating rink will
close at 5 p.m. Sunday, March 18,
according to an announcement yes-
terday by Eddie Lowrcy, coach of the
Varsity hockey team.
The rink will be available, however,
at the regular skating hours until the
final closing next Sunday.

Cochrane ay
Pilot Tioers To
First IDivision
The Detroit Baseball Club is go-
ing places this year, take it from
Manager Mickey Cochrane. The Ti-
gers wound up in fifth place last
season about 20 full games behind
the league-leading Senators. Over-
coming that mental handicap is the
task that faces Cochrane and Coach-
es Del Baker and Cy Perkins.
Since the time they captured the
pennant in the early part of the
last decade, little has been heard of
the chances of Frank Navin's club
for a position in the first division,
much less, being a candidate for the
World Series.
This year however, with the ac-
quisition of Cochrane behind the
plate, and the hard-hitting Goose
Goslin in the outfield, plus the added
experience of a year in the big
leagues for Pete Fox, Hank Green-
berg and Mary Owen, Detroit fans
are picking a winner.

12 Swimmers
Will Leave For
BigTen Meet
Robertson To Compete In
Three Events; Michigan
Is Conceded Victory
Twelve Varsity swimmers will leave
Ann Arbor tomorrow afternoon for
Iowa City where they will attempt to
captur-e Michigan's fourth consecu-
tive Western Conference swimming
championship Saturday.
Coach Matt Mann yesterday an-
nounced definitely the make-up of
the two relay teams and the indivi-
dual evens in which each man will
rx Will Be Busy
Juiian "Tel a:' Robertson, sopho-
mre free styler, will be one of the
busiest swimmers around the big new
Hawkeye pool Saturday. Besides
.wimnuing with Captain Jim Christy
in the 440 and 220 the slim Cali-
fornian will be a member of the 400-
yard free style relay team.
With Robertson on the relay team
will be Ogden Dalrymple, Henry
Kamienski, and Bob Renner.
Renner, too, will have a busy day,
swimming on both relay teams and in
the 100. Taylor Drysdale and Bob
Lawrence will hold down the other
positions on the medley team.
Dalrymple and Dick Blake will take
care of the 50 yard sprint and will
both compete in the 100, as well.
Michigan's sole representative in
the 200 yard breast stroke will be
Lawrence, fighting for a second place
behind Horn, Northwestern's Nation-
al champion.
Michigan Conceded Win
Bill Boice will team with the star,
Drysdale, in the 150 yard backstroke.
His team already equipped with two
stellar divers in Dick Degener and
Derland Johnson, Mann has decided
not to use Frank Fehsenfeld in any
nmeets this year so that the sopho-
more will have three years of com-
petition starting in 1935.
College papers around the Confer-
ence indicate that the rest of the
teams are preparing to fight it out
among themselves for second and1
third places, conceding the Wolver-
ines a hands-down victory. Even
the Wildcats, last year's National
Champs, admit that they haven't the
all-around strength that Mann's
title bound aggregation can flash if

Continuous Action Is Promised
Fans In National Wrestling Meet

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last of
a series of features on the forthcoming
National IntercollegiateWrestling Meet.
Double action is promised all
wrestling fans who attend the Na-
tional Intercollegiate Meet, now less
than two weeks away. Two mats will
be used and there will be two bouts
going on at all times. Thus long
waits will be aoided and constant
movement is assured. In addition the
mats will each be 24 x 24 instead of
20 x 20, which has been the size used
in the past. The mats will be placed
on the ground and there will be no
ropes, eliminating any opportunity
for "bad man" tactics, so frowned
upon by amateur grapplers.
Plans for the meet are practically
complete. The official entry list is
swelling daily, especially from col-
leges in the Mid-West, and a rough
estimate indicates that at least 30
colleges will be represented. The
entry list will close next Monday,
with all of the contestants having
to report for the official weighing in
at 10 p.m. Friday, March 23. Pair-
ings will be made at noon and the
first bouts will begin promptly at
3 p.m. Friday night's matches will
start at 8 p.m. and the semi-final
bouts on Saturday afternoon are
slated for 3 p.m. The finals will be
fought on Saturday night beginning
at 8 p.m.
Consolation Matches
In addition to the final matches
on Saturday night, the consolation
bouts will be held on the other mat,
simultaneously. In these matches the
men defeated by the champion fight
for the right to grapple the runner-
up: If the consolation winner can
defeat the runner-up he will gain
Ssecond place, if not third will be his
lot. Thus three places will be award-
ed in each class.
The advance'seat sale for the meet
will begin this Friday. Tickets admit-
ting one to the entire meet will sell
at $1.50, while tickets for Friday',,
afternoon and evening bouts and
Saturday's afternoon contests will gc,
at 40c. The price of tickets for the
finals has been set at 75c. Ticket,
will be placed on sale at the Admin-
istration Building and the Michigan
Illini Enter 8 Men
Official entry blanks have been re-
ceived from Illinois, Ohio University,
and Rochester Athaenium and Me-
chanics College, in addition to those
sent in by Kent and Lehigh last
week. The Illini entry was for eight

men, while the other two schools
entered three each.
Further entries, especially from
the Eastern schools, are expected
this week end on the basis of their
showing in the Eastern Intercollegi-
ate Meet. Among the sea-board
schools almost certain to be repre-
sented are Harvard, Princeton, Penn
State, Navy, and Franklin and Mar-
chall. From the Conference all but
Purdue and Wisconsin are almost
certain to be represented, with In-
diana being expected to bring a full
eight man team. Oklahoma Univer-
sity, Iowa tate College, Southwestern
State Teachers, and Central State
Teachers, both of Oklahoma, Cornell,
Oklahoma A. & M., Michigan State,
and Wheaton College are other
schools certain to be numbered in
the final entry list.
That interest in the meet is wide-
spread is proven by a letter receivea
here from John Drummond. Drum-
mond, a star heavyweight wrestler
at Princeton some years ago, and
now a resident of London, England,
has long been an ardent follower of
amateur wrestling. He is noted for
;athering statistics on European
wrestling which were of great value
to Hugo Otapolik, coach of the Amer-
:can team, in the last Olympic games.
Drummond has interestedly followed
the plans for the National Intercol-
legiate meet here and signified his
intention to attend.

Varsity Wrestlers
Place Well In Big
Ten Championships
One championship, one s e c o n d
place and two fourth places in the
Big Ten were the stock of Coach
Cliff Keen's wrestlers as they began
the final drive toward the National
Intercollegiates to be held in Ann
Arbor, March 23 and 24.
During the Conference competition
the Wolverine grapplers placed third
both in the individual championships
and in the dual meet competition.
Indiana and Illinois were first and
second, respectively, in both divi-
Capt. Art Mosier holds the lone
championship, having emerged from
the two-day meet with the 145 lb.
title, and he will be favored to place
in the National meet.
Louie Parker came through in the
165 lb. division only to be defeated
in the finals by Ollie Gillum, de-
fending champion, in a close match.
In the consolation round Parker dd-
feated Ted Horsting of Northwestern
to keep second place. Horsting was
a winner over Parker in the North-
western-Michigan dual meet.
The showing of Seymour Rubin in
the 126 lb. division and Don Fiero in
the 118 lb. class was highly pleasing
to Keen. Rubin was eliminated' by
Adams who won the title, and in the
consolation round lost to Cellini of
Fiero was also eliminated by a
champion, Bush of Indiana. In the
consolation round he was edged out
by Fauser of Ohio, who scored the
biggest upset of the meet by defeat-
ing Felix of Minnesota by a two sec-
ond time advantage.
Michigan's other two entrants, Hil-
ton Ponto at 175 lbs. and Carroll
Sweet at 155 lbs. were both elimi-
nated by finalist. Sweet was pinned
by Keilhorn of Iowa and Ponto was
defeated by Johnson of Minnesota
in a close match.
