versity men in the country.Cornell College, Iowa.
No one who attnds an intercolle- Hilton Ponto, representing Mich-
giate contest of any kind can fail igan in the 165-pound class, was
to remark on this great democracy eliminated in the first round when
of ours, and how amateur athletics1
bring representatives of all sections,
into a common brotherhood. Rich,
man's son and poor man's son, theyc
come together on the mat to tusslet
and roll, to strive against one an-
other and see who is the better man.
As the contestants convened yes-
terday on the mats in the IntramuralI
building, Lehigh, F. & M., Washing- I
ton and Lee came into contact withl
Oklahoma A. & M., Southwest l
Teachers' College and Iowa.
Well, it's a good show. The lads
know their business and are in gen-
eral far more aggressive than in an
ordinary dual meet. When they en-
ter the ring, each man feels that he
is a potential National champion.
What is more, he is ready to prove
TWO ROWS of bleachers flank the
windows of the great gymnasium
and in the center are two mats... .
a regular two-ring circus. If things
slow down in one battle, then you can
always watch the other, and there is
usually something exciting going on
all the time. Either somebody is
getting stood on his head or getting
his snout well rubbed into the mat
nearly every moment. Every hold
in the book and some out of it are
used. Orthodox and unorthodox
styles are used.
They range all the way from tiny
118-pounders to regular pachydermsE
who look like professionals, and
bounce each other around like good
fellows to the vast detriment of the
steel-reinforced gymnasium floor.
The little lads get all wound up and
look like nothing so much as a nest
of remarkably agitated spiders. All
in all it's very lively, and a grand
THIS afternoon at the 3 o'clock
session, my Detroit friend Nick
Londes is scheduled to make an ap-
pearance. Nick couldn't get away
last..night because Steel and Londos,
two of his boys, were putting on a
show in the big city. But Nick will
be out today, and we will see just
he was pinned by Marion Foreman,
University of Oklahoma. Foreman,
who won second place in the Big Six
conference meet this year, threw Pon-
to in three minutes, 15 seconds with
a half-nelson and a body scissors.
Don Fiero, the only other Wolverine
to fight in the first round, lost to Rex
Peery, Oklahoma A. & M., who is
champion in the 118-pound division.
Fiero put up a good battle against
his more experienced and more pow-
erful opponent, holding him almost
even until the final minute of the
bout when Perry pinned him with a

Mann Wants Race With
Kiphitls For Swim Tite
The Keen-Londes pro-amateur
wrestling controversy has had rep-
ercussions far from the squared
A long-tailed mythical character
invaded the Intramural pool yes-
terday in the person of Harry G.
Kipke and suggested to Coach
Matt Mann that he work up a
little fr, publicity for the Na-
tionul Intereollegiale swimming
meet at Ohio State next week. s
Mann, nothing loath, said, "O.K.
Kip, I'll challenge Bob Kiphuth
of Yale to a race, any distance,
to determine the winner of the
national title! How's that?"
Though his hair is growing quite
thin and gray Mann still cuts a
mean figure in the water and
holds up his end in the faculty
water-polo games held every noon.
Ile was national champion of his
native England in his youth but
never swam in competition after
coming to the U.S.
Mann, however, spoiled all pos-
sible publicity blurbs by saying:

rivals in swimming and will be
again this year at Columbus, but
Kiphuth and I are the best of

his start in this game!"

Bobby Jones Still Trails
In Masters' Invitational
With a field if more than 400
entries, a dozen Michigan tracksters
will attempt to climax the most suc-
cessful indoor season in years by a
victory in the Butler Relays at In-
Coach Charlie Hoyt and his com-
paratively small squad left Ann Arbor
yesterday, determined to dethrone In-
diana, last year's champions. The
Hoosiers, with a full squad of 20
men, are given a slig ht advantage
over the Wolverines.
Champs Defend Titles
Defending champions in all but one
event forecast a whole sale shat-
tering of records in the meet today.
Only Boyd Pantind of Michigan,
who won the 30-yard high hurdles,
will not be there to answer the chal-
lenge of this year's crop. However,
his team mate, Willis Ward, will
compete in the event as a favorite.
Ward also will defend his -high
jump record against Vincent Murphy
of Notre Dame, who placed second,
and will enter the 60-yard dash in
an effort to dethrone Ralph Metcalfe
Steve Divich, who attained a height
of 13 feet 4 inches for Indiana in
the pole vault last year, will be op-
posed by Lowry of Michigan Normal,
Black of Miami University, Roberts of
Chicago, Seeley of Illinois, and Dave
Hunn of Michigan.
The mile relay record is almost
sure to go by the boards. Indiana who
won last year with a time of 3:27.6,
will have to speed up considerably if
they hope to retain their title.
IM" Relays Strong
Michigan will have an entirely new
outfit from the one who won the two-
mile relay last year. Childs, Smith,
Alix and Gorman will run in both
this event and the four-mile relay.
The Relays will be Michigan's final
indoor meet. The boys will take some
time off next week, then will start
preparations for the Drake Relays,
booked for April 28.
The Drake program is more than
a month away, but the trackmen will
be away on spring vacation from April
6 to 16, and will have only two weeks
after the vacation period to get ready.
