Tilden To Meet

All Right, Jewell, Go Ahead And Brag!

Lott In Grudge
Battle Tonight
Nusslein And Lott To Pair
Against Big Bill, Vines
In Doubles Match
"Big league" tennis will make its
fourth annual appearance in Ann Ar-
bor tonight when Big Bill Tilden and
George Lott begin batting tennis balls
at each other in another episode of
their grudge meetings, in the Intra-
mural building. The Tilden-Lott set-
to, first of three matches on the pro-
gram, will start at 8:30.
Neither Tilden nor Lott attempt to
conceal their dislike for each other,
and if familiarity breeds contempt,
their mutual hatred now has no
bounds for this will be the thirty-
sixth stop on a tour which when com-
pleted will include seventy-five cities
and 27,000 miles.
It is rumored that the feud orig-
inated when Tilden accused Lott of
emr oying tactics on the court not
befitting a. gertleman. In their
matches, Lott uses as part of his at-
tack, a line of oratory which serves
to talk the temperamental Tilden out
of his usual composure on the courts,
but apparently to little avail as the
old master holds a decided edge over
Lott on the current tour.
Vines, Tilden To Pair
In the second bout, a doubles match,
Hans Nusslein, the German star, and
Lott, conceded to be the best doubles
player in the world, wil pair against
Ellsworth Vines and Tilden.
Lott is an expert at short angle
shots,. baited with spin, which while
not as spectacular as murderous
drives of other players, are as ef-
Concluding the evening's program,
Vines will meet Nusslein in a singles
match. In a recent ranking of the 10
leading tennis players of the world,
Tilden placed Vines first and Nusslein
Prefacing the appearance of his
troupe, Tilden will give a free lecture
on tennis at the Natural Science Audi-
torium at 4 o'clock this afternoon.
Stands have been erected on 'the
Intramural gym floor to accommodate
3,000 spectators. Tickets will be on
sale at the Athletic Administration
until 5 p.m., when they can be pur-
chased at the I-M building. Students
will be charged an admission price of
40c, while general admissions will be
I-M To Present
Annual Open
House Event
The Seventh Annual Intramural
Sports Open House to be held in the
I-M Building March 20 will feature
19 different sports.
The purpose of the affair which
celebrates the opening of the build-
ing, is to demonstrate the various
ativities carried on in the Intramural
department before the public and al-
so to give players a chance to com-
pete before an audience. The meet
has helped to instruct the public on
the finer points of the various sports.
In addition to having local partici-
pants in the various events, the de-
partment has entered expert contest-
ants from nearby communities for
exhibitions. The University of Mich-
igan swimming team will give a per-
formance in addition to the other
The events will be started early
in the evening. Previous to the start-
ing of the actual competition in the
various divisions, instructors will ex-
plain-the fundamentals and interest-
ing points of the games.

Record Crowd Attended
Last year's crowd of 5,000 people
set a new attendance record which
the department hopes will be broken
this year. Swimming usually draws
the largest crowd with tennis, volley-
ball, and gymnastics following close
behind. The faculty handball finals
is expected to attract many interested
The various sports on the program
are as follows: basketball,hvolleyball,
codeball, table tennis, badminton,
archery, squash, tennis, fencing,
handball, wrestling, tumbling, golf,

Be Chosen Tonight; Ed
Kellman Gets Numeral
Frank Bissell will represent Mich-
igan March,'22 and 23 at the National
Intercollegiate Meet to be held at Le-
high College, it was announced yester-
day by Coach Cliff Keen. Bissell, who
will wrestle at 155-pounds, alternated
between that weight and 165-pounds
during the season. He started off well
j winning most of his early matches but
at the end of the mat season seemed
to have lost his winning ability.
Bissell did not. go to the Big Ten
meet at Chicago last week since Keen
wanted him to be in shape for the
Lehigh meet. Keen is working out withE
him every day and expects the 155-
pound sophomore to be in fine condi-
tion for the Nationals.
Keen also announced that the 1935-
36 mat captain would be chosen to-
night. Both Seymour Rubin and Capt.
Jack Harrod are to be graduated in'
June so the choice will fall on either
Wally Heavenrich, Frank Bissell or
Alan Rubin. Heavenrich is a junior'

Ed Kellman, '37, of Highland Park
has been awarded a secondary nu-
meral, thus making six men who re-
ceived the numeral awards. Kellman
is a 126-pounder who fought at 118-
pounds in a few of the meets.
In the Big Ten meet Michigan
placed two men, Seymour Rubin and
Captain Harrod. Rubin received sec-
ond place in the 126-pound division
while Harrod took third position in
the 145-pound class. Illinois won the
meet upsetting Indiana.

Poser and Ed Shaver close behind
Walker was one of the best all-
around players in the Big Ten and
while his scoring total didn't touch
that of some of the others, his ability
to take care of almost any of the of-
fensive stars and his team work and
ball handling more than made up for
his smaller scoring total.
McDonald was the strongest half
of the best set of guards in the
league. He held Haarlow to no field
goals and while he also didn't score as
often as his teammate, he made Wis-
consin the strongest defensive team
in the Big Ten.
Shaver of Purdue, one of last year's
All-Conference selection, pushed the
first team guards hard and barely
missed an assignment on the top five.
He was the key man of the strong
Purdue offense, heaving long passes
all over the floor, and starting most
of the scoring plays. His defensive
ability was not up to .that of the first
team guards.
Poser was the strongest offensively.
However, his defensive play didn't
match that of the others. Other rank-
ing guards were Gunning of Indiana,
Henry of Illinois, Vance of Northest-
ern, Grim of Iowa, Baker of Minne-
sota, Beitner of Ohio State, Patanelli'
of Michigan, and Downey of Purdue.'

Ellsworth Vines, former national
amateur tennis champion, will be
paired against Hans Nusslein, Ger-
man champion, in an exhibition of
professional tennis to be held at 8:30
tonight at the Intramural Building.
Big Bill Tilden and George Lott, who
openly dislike each other, will meet
in the other featured singles match.
Seven Freshmen Win
Numerals In Hockey
Coach Eddie Lowrey, mentor of
the Michigan hockey team, yester-
day announced the list of fresh-
men who will receive numerals for
service on the yearling squad.
Numerals were awarded to Gil-
bert James, Ottawa, Ontario, a
wing; John Fabello, Scituate,
Mass., wing; Hubert Fones, East
Aurora, New York, forward; Fritz
Radford, Ann Arbor, defense; Ir-
win Shalek, Everett, Mass., goalie;
Robert Simpson, Duluth, Minn.,
defense; and James B. Smith, De-
troit, defense.
James and Fabello have been the
stars of the freshman outfit. Fa-
bello was a member of the Massa-
chusetts state championship team
in high school last year..

ers will wear their numbers on the

The new rule was adopted by Big
Ten athletic directors at a recent
meeting in Chicago.

Records Due to Fall
Michigan swimmers have bettered
every existing Big Ten record with
the exception of the 50- and 100-yard
sprints more than once in dual meets
to date and their chances to do the
Fame officially Saturday are very good.
The medley relay team of Co-Cap-
tain Taylor DrysdaleJack Kasley,
and Ogden Dalrymple set a new
world's record of 3:00.8 against
Northwestern last Friday night, and
the Conference mark of 3:10.4 set by
thet Michigan trio of Drysdale, Louie
Lemak, and Frank Kennedy in 1932
can hardly withstand the assault of
such an outfit.
Kasley's time of 2:27.6 in the 200-
yard breast-stroke against the Wild-
cats established a new Intercollegiate

Frosh Trackmen
Show Improvement
"Marked improvement has been
shown by a number of the fresh-
men," stated Coach Ken Doherty yes-
terday in discussing the records
turned in by the freshmen tracksters
in their recent telegraphic meet with
Ray Fink has shown the most im-
provement. When Fink reported this
fall his best time for the mile was
4:50. Last week against Indiana,
Fink cut nearly 17 seconds from his
earlier time when he negotiated the
distance in 4:33.2. This is only 3.5
seconds above the freshman Field
House record, held by Clayton Brels-
ford, now Conference champion. Doh-
erty expects either Fink or Bill Stae-
hle to break this record before the
season is over.
"Sandy" Farrell leaped 22 feet 1
inch in the running broad jump in
another outstanding performance.
This effort was 13 inches better than
any of his previous trials.
The Illinois yearlings will be the
squad's next opponent in a telegraphic'
meet to be held next Saturday after-
noon. The freshman mentor believes
that new marks will be set by John
Townsend in the shot put, Staehle in
the two mile run, and by either Stae-
hle or Fink in the mile.

An All-America Basketball Team

ing honorable mention will be

MICHIGAN sport writers can prob-
ably be more impartial than anyl
others this year in picking an All-'
Conference basketball team because
they need not worry about placing
Michigan men. Maybe we did stretch
a point in order to give Meyers and
Patanelli honorable mention. Anyway,
here they are-:
The Big Ten was well supplied with
good forwards this season. Bob Kes-
sler of Purdue and Bill Haarlow of
Chicago, of course, stood out above
all the others, not only in scoring abil-
ity but also in defensive skill and
team play, and easily cinched first
team positions.
Second squad forwards gave a little
more trouble. Warren Whitlinger, the
high-socring Ohio State ace, was
chosen for his beautiful offensive
basketball during the last half of thej
season, and especially for his remark-
able performance in the second Ohio
State-Purdue game, in which he
scored 22 points to defeat the Boiler-
The other second team forward po-
sition has been awarded to Norman{
Cottom, Purdue's All-American for-
ward last year.. Cottom didn't play
the type of ball that made him the
outstanding player of 1934, but this
can be attributed to the fact that he
was guarded so closely this year. In
the later games of the schedule, when
the opposing coaches were beginning
to worry about his teammate, Kessler,
he returned to form and resumed his
old position of a leading scorer. His
team play and floor work continued
to be outstanding throughout his scor-
ing slump. j
Other outstanding forwards were

Barko of Iowa, Kehrt of Indiana,
Froschauer of Illinois, Preboski of
Wisconsin, and Meyers of Michigan
This year's crop of centers was not
up to the usual standard of the Big
Ten. Of course, there is a good reason
for this. A large number of the start-
ing pivot men were sophomores, so
while this season's centers may not
be as good a group as the Conference
has seen, one can always look to next
year with satisfaction.
Gordon Norman of Minnesota the
only senior on the team, won the
center position over Bob Riegel, the
Illinois sophomore, largely because of
his superior experience.rBothwere
dangerous in the foul circle, taking
advantage of their superior height, as
well as being capable ball handlers,
and each gave valuable help to their
respective teams in controlling the
Blackmer of Iowa, Thomas of Ohio
State, and Fechtman of Indiana were
outstanding throughout the season,
but they didn't show the scoring
ability of Norman or Riegel and didn't
seriously threaten either.
The Conference had more than its
share of capable guards. Wendel Wal-
ker, Indiana, and Gilly McDonald,
Wisconsin, were, in our estimation,
the best of the group with "Chubby"
