Stellar Wrestlers
To Compete Here
For National Title
EDI OR'S NOTE his is the second
of a series of articles on the coming
National Intercollegiate wrestling meet.
When a National Intercollegiate
title-holder isn't able to make his
own team, the class of competition
in the approaching meet is assuredly
high. And when an Eastern college
team boasts an undefeated heavy-
weight who edges out a star of two
seasons' standing for a place on the
squad, the caliber of the grapplers
who will visit Ann Arbor March 23
and 24 is bound to be outstanding.
Flood, of the Oklahoma A. & M.
team, winner of the 126-lb. title in
1933, was replaced by Barnes in his
last meet, and advance reports in-
dicate that the d e f e n d i n g team
champions may enter the latter rath-
er than the man already boasting
one national crown.
Yale Strong In Heavy Class
The heavyweight situation is also
bound to awaken interest. Teague
of the Southwestern Teachers' Col-
lege won the "big boys'" crown last
year but Yale is claiming almost cer-
tain victory for their unbeaten man,
Snowden, who, to win himself a
place on the Eli mat squad had to
oust Taft, grandson of William How-
ard Taft, and long regarded as the
cream of the seaboard matmen.
In order that the winner will be
able to prove himself a real cham-
pion, and yet avoid upsets by less
worthy candidates, a seeding system
will be introduced into the meet,
whereby the favorites will be placed
to clash in the finals. No wrestler
will be called upon to wrestle more
than four matches in the two day
meet, putting a premium upon quick
falls and encouraging much more
action than is found in the average
dual meet. Another innovation will
be the requirement that all entries
must have proven their worth in
previous competition, either by win-
ning a place in their conference or
establishing an outstanding record
in inter-school matches.
Team Trophies To Be Awarded
With the agreement to again
a w a r d t e a m trophies, a practice
which was abandoned a year ago,
fuller entry lists from outstanding
teams are expected. Indiana and
Michigan of the Conference schools,
Iowa State College of Ames, and the
1932 team champions, Oklahoma,
plan to send a full squad of eight
men to the meet. Lehigh and Cor-
nell college of Iowa have announced
five man entry lists, and the other
leading teams will probably send be-
tween three and eight entrants.
Until the blanks are filed the full
entry list cannot of course be com-
puted, but 143 colleges in the coun-
try boast full wrestling teams and
a fair measure of these are certain
to enter at least a two man squad.
It is believed that there will be no
less than 16 entrants in each of the
eight classes, which guarantees a
list of over 100 starters at the out-
set, and current rumor tends to show
that this season's entry list will be
, one of the largest in the history of
- Intercollegiate wrestling.

Victory Over Iowa Swimmers
Gives Michigan Title Hop

The Michigan s w i m m i n g team
rested on its laurels yesterday after
handing the Iowa State natators a
crushing defeat in a dual meet Fri-
day night in the Intramural pool.
The flashes of record - breaking
ability showed by the Wolverine
splashers Friday night clearly dem-
onstrated, in the opinion of many
observers, that the Maize and Blue
are again the logical choice to win
both the Western Conference and
National Intercollegiate swimming
Taylor Drysdale's performance in
winning the 150-yard back stroke in
the amazing time of 1:38.7 was per-
haps the most spectacular event of
the meet. The existing Conference
record, made by Drysdale, is 1:42.3,
almost four seconds slower than the
Wolverine backstroker's time against
the Hawkeye swimmers.
A comparison of Drysdale's per-
formance with the times made in
this event in the Nationals would
indicate that Drysdale should win
his favorite event at Columbus this
year. Last year's winner was Chal-

mers (Franklin and Marshall)
negotiated the distance in 1:39.
1931 Kojac (Rutgers) won the
in 1:38.
The Wolverine 400-yard
team, composed of Kamienski,
rymple, Robertson and R e n
clipped almost three seconds of
Conference record for the event
by Northwestern. The existing
is 3:40.4 while the Wolverines
ered the distance Friday nig)
Capt. Jim Cristy gave notice
he may be breaking some re
himself by swimming the 440
free style in 5:04.7. The ex
Conference record for the 7y
pool was set by Cristy in the
of 5:01.4. The late Frank Kei
holds the 60-foot pool mark fo
distance, swimming the 22 le
in 5:06.4.
The Michigan captain's time i
220-yard free style bettered the
he made in the Conference c
pionships last year., Cristy's ti
1933 was 2:21.8 and he swar
distance Friday night in 2:21.J

These Northwestern cagers will see service against the Wolverines tomorrow night at Evanston, Ill.
Ed Manske gridiron star, also plays basketball for the Wildcats and usually takes a forward position on
the court when he does. Irwin Kopecky at center, Donald Brewer at forward, and Nelson Culver and Al
Kawal as guards are outstanding point getters for the Wildcats.

Michigan Ineffective
Twice in the third period the Mich-
igan sextet had the chance to tak(
advantage of penalties against Min-
nesota but was unable to score.
Johnson was sent to the box for trip-
ping Chapman and Coach Lowrey
promptly sent in Sherf, David and
Artz to replace Stewart, Sindles and
MacEachern. The Wolverine line,
however, proved ineffective and the
opportunity was lost.
Near the close of the game Mitch-
ell received a penalty but the Wol-
verines were too weary from the ter-
rific pace to take advantage of the
Gophers Outplayed
During the first period the Wol-
verines far outplayed the Gophers
but it was not until the closing min-
utes of the period that the Maize
and Blue scored.
After Clausen had cleared nine
times as the Wolverine puckmen
bombarded him, Johnny Sherf took
the puck near the Michigan cage,
skated straight up the ice until he
reached the center of the rink where
he let loose a terrific shot that rifled
between Wagnild and Johnson, and
sailed past Clausen's feet for the only
Michigan score of the game. Appar-
ently the. Gopher netminder failed
to see the puck as he did not seem
to know when the disc shot past him.

Legal Betting....
The Yewkant City. . . .
* **

WELL, I SEE that the old state of
Va. is following the new parade
and getting set to grab a slight bit
of change by contributing to the
moral downfall of its citizens. At
any rate, the Va. house passes a bill
legalizing horse-racing and pari-mu-
tuel betting.
It is . a custom of thousands of
years' standing for citizens of all
sorts and conditions to wager such
things as shirts, pants, suspender-
buttons, silver, wives and such com-
modities on the outcome of horse
races. Such customs are no doubt
very, very detrimental to the wel-
fare of the immortal soul or what-
ever it is that keeps human beings
going inside.
But the chances are right now
that the good citizens of Va. are
crossing the state borders to do such
things detrimental to souls and such,
and here the morals of said citizens
are being impaired with revenue
from same going to some other state
in the form of a wagering-fee, which
is known as a tax on betting.
* * *
NOW IT IS a well-established prin-
ciple for many years in American
gov't. that a state should have at
least some of the profits accruing
from the impairment of its citizens'
morals. Therefore, it is very, very
wrong for another state to steal such
profits, and the Va. Legislature has
just gotten hep to what is going on
Personally, I think it is fine for the
good citizens of Va. to bet right on
the own home grounds without hav-
ing to make any foreign invasions for
said purposes.
Of course, the students of the Uni-
versity have to climb over the Di-
vision St. boundary in order to drink
beer, and will continue to do so un-
til beer is brought up onto the home
grounds, but that is another story
and has nothing to do with the
THIS QUESTION of the Division
St. beer-line is an intriguing one,
as is the fundamental philosophy
behind the ruling. The ordinance
may be found by looking through
the local books until one is found
with *a predominantly azure tinge.
Anyway it is a blue law.
Now just where is this line? Is it
down the center of Division Street.
or more conveniently located near

one of the gutters? Shall we send
out a corps of Engineers with cali-
pers and micrometers and other such
c o m p 1 i c a t e d and unmentionable
things to determine the line, or shall'
we just say that the line is some-
where down Division St.?
Anyway, if such a line exists, what
does it signify? I'm not talking
about the legal aspects ,of the case
because it simply means that yew-
kant sell beer west of it and you can,
under license and proper conditions
east of the line. All of which quali-
fies Ann Arbor as one of the leading
Yewkant Cities of the nation.
NOW Fifth Avenue is the street
just East of Division and Thomp-
son is the street just West. Can
anyone in good conscience tell me
that selling beer on Thompson street,
exclusive of the ordinance against
it, is any more (or less) detrimen-
tal to civic welfare than selling it on
Fifth? I wonder.
Still and all the City Fathers are
running the city, a petition of 1,600
voters was voided on a technicality
.... the will of the people be done.
But the City Fathers are still run-
ning the city and they will keep on
running the city. . . . until the next
Betsy Barbour, Martha
Cook, To Meet In Finals
Betsy Barbour's sextet and one
representing Martha Cook will clash
in the Intramural finals for the 1934
women's basketball title Tuesday
night at 8:15 p. m. in Barbour gym-
Both teams have come through a
stiff season's competition in the A
division of the cage tourney, and
have both disposed of their opposi-
tion with little real difficulty.
The B division finals will be played
off at some later day in the week.
Jordan I and Alpha Chi Omega are;
the finalists in this section, having
lost only once during the season's
play. y

Michigan's basketball squad will
round out a busy week end tomor-
row night when it takes on the third
place Northwestern cagers at Evan-
ston, Ill.
It will be the second contest this
year between the two teams and the
second game within three days for
the Michigan team. The Wildcats
thoroughly trounced the Wolverines
on their last invasion of the North-
western gym, 44 to 23.
The Northwestern lineup will in-
clude such men as Donald Brewer
forward, Al Kawal, guard, Nelson
Culver, guard, Irwin Kopecky, cen-
ter or forward, "Eggs" Manske
guard, Fisher, center, Seorer, for-
ward, and Spoerer, forward.
Brewer, Culver, Kopecky, and Fish-
er are mainstays of the Northwest-
ern array and will probably see reg-
ular service tomorrow night.
Coach Cappon will very likely send
the same starting lineup against
Northwestern that faced the Boiler-
makers last night. This will be Plum-
mer and Fishman at the forward
wall, Joslin at center, and Oliver
and Tessmer at the guard positions
unless Petoskey and Ford recover
sufficiently fiom facial cuts to war-
rant a change.
