Powerful Indiana

Wrestling Team Defeats

Zerbo Defeats I Hockey Team Shows Airtight B a dge r s Beat
Dworman In Defense In Friday's Tie Game Wolverines To

The strong Conference champion
wrestling team from Indiana won six
out of eight matches yesterday after-
noon at Yost Field House and defeated
the University of Michigan matmen
by the score of 22-6.
Wally Heavenrich and Seymour
Rubin were the only Wolverine mat-
men who were able to turn in victories
for the Maize and Blue. Heavenrich
met Howard Bush of the Hoosiers in
the 135-pound division and in a very
close and exciting bout had the Hoo-
sier almost pinned several times.
When the regular time period had ex-
pired, Referee Fendley Collins, Mich-
igan State Coach, decided that an
overtime period was needed and after
it had ended awarded the decision
to the Wolverine wrestler. This was
Heavenrich's seventh victory in as
many starts this season.
Seymour Rubin Wins
Seymour Rubin defeated Howard
Woods of Indiana in the 145-pound
class in the roughest bout of the day.
Woods' illegal tactics brought forth
boos from the crowd several times. In
one period of the match Wood lifted
Rubin off the floor and then smashe'
him to the ground, which is illegal
under college rules. When the bout
was over Rubin had a 1:19 time ad-
vantage over the Hoosier and the
referee gave him the decision.
Willard Duffy of Indiana had an
easy time with Ed Kellman in the
118-pound division and punished the
Wolverine severely throughout the
match winning by a time advantage
of 8:39. In the 126-pound class act-
ing Capt. Ollie Cellini of the Hoo-
siers rolled up a time advantage of
7:00 over Alan Rubin of Michigan.
For a while it looked as if the more
experienced Indiana man would pin
Rubin but the Wolverine managed
to stay the limit.
Bissell Drops Close One
Frank Bissell of Michigan suffered
his second loss of the season at the
hands of Artie Peters of Indiana in
the 155-pound class. In a close but
unexciting bout, Peters managed to
eke out the victory by 3:26.
Frank Krahulik, Indiana's Big Ten
champion, had- the advantage all the
way against Abe Levine of Michigan
in the 165-pound bout. Levine could
not get started against his bigger
opponent and Krahulik won by 5:44.
Oldin Gillem, another of the Hoo-
sier's Big Ten champions, scored the
only fall of the day when he pinned
Bill Lowell of Michigan with a com-
bination half-nelson and body lock
in 3:48. Since Willard Hildebrand,
Michigan heavyweight, was injured
Friday, the heavyweight match was
forfeited to the Hoosiers.

Louis Zerbo, outstanding all around
handball player of Michigan, success-
fully defended his State A.A.U. singles
handball championship yesterday, by
defeating Herman Dworman, leading
left-hander of the country.

Handball Final;
Rally By State Champion
In Last Game Enables
Hun To Keep Title
Staging a brilliant rally in the de-
ciding game, Louis Zerbo successfully
defended his State A.A.U. singles
handball crown, defeating Herman
Dworman, former national doubles
champion, by scores of 8-21, 21-15,
Zerbo was slow in warming up and
Dworman easily won the first game,
using his famous left hand to good
advantage and keeping the champ
on the defensive by means of a baf-
fling hop service. In the second game,
Zerbo began to solve the southpaw's
service and managed to keep the ball
on Dworman's right side, which is no-
toriously weak, thereby winning 21-I
The final game was featured by
the challenger's kill shot and Zerbo's
court strategy. Dworman ran up a
lead of 20-17, and the match seemed
to be over when he shot a terrific
ball into Zerbo's left hand court,
but Louis managed to return the ball
and continued on to win the serve.
This was really the deciding point
in the match for once he got the
serve, Zerbo ran off four points in
quick succession to win and retainj
his title.
Zerbo's victory can be attributed
largely to the fact that his left hand
was able to withstand the constant
attack that Dworman centered on it,
and that Dworman's right side was
too vulnerable. The winner's assort-
ment of shots and court play com-
bined with the difference in the men's
ages gave Zerbo the slight edge that
enabled him to eke out the victory.

If there were any doubts about;
Michigan's hockey team being the
best defensive outfit in the Confer-
ence, they must have been dispelled
in Friday's game with the Gophers.
The Wolverines virtually defended
their way into at least a half interest
in the Big Ten title when they tiedt
Minnesota, 1 to 1, in a double over- j
time game at the Coliseum.
A thrust very early in the first per-
iod gave Michigan a one-goal lead
to protect, .and protect it they did,
with Larry David and Red MacCol- j
lum, defensemen, dishing out body
checks and blocking long shots so
consistently that Chase had to make
only 21 saves in 80 minutes of play.
This, in contrast to the 50 stops Wilk-
inson was forced to make for the
With a little more luck the title bat-
tle might have been over Friday.
Minnesota scored in the last four min-
utes of play of the final period while
Johnny Sherf was sitting in the cool-
er. Captain Spencer Wagnild whip-
ped a pass to Russ Gray, the blonde
scooter, who took the puck at the
mouth of the goal and drove it home.
Bill Chase, Michigan goalie, didn't
have a chance - not even to wish he
were twins.
Chase seems to have gained in skill
and confidence since his first try at
goal tending two weeks ago. Friday
the fans were more concerned than
he was when a shot came flying in at
the goal. They soon learned to trust
him, however. Chase may remind
some of the veteran hockey fans of
Jack Tompkins, goalie four year back,
in that both are about the same build
and temperament, and refuse to stray
far from the goal entrance.
* * *
There were 22 saves made at the
Michigan goal, but Chase got credit
for only 21. Johnny Sherf made the
other one. On a melee around the
net, Chase found himself smothered
under a pile of bodies with the puck
lying loose about seven yards out. A
Minnesota player picked it up and
pushed it toward the opening, but
Sherf flungthimself into the breach,
blocked the shot with his chest and
fell on the puck, necessitating a face
Gib James, freshman hockey ace,
lost two bits on Vic Heyliger. He bet
the sophomore center would score. He
was certain that Heyliger had scored

others were confused about that play.
None in the press box saw what hap-
pened and had to get information
from Referee Mickey McGuire.

TRACK FANS will have a chancel
on Saturday to see the two teams'
savored to take the Conference in-
door meet in a dual engagement
when the spectacular Jesse Owenst

Ohio State, with a team strong in
the hurdles, sprints, and jumps, isE
'he team experts concede sufficient
,eam strength to give the powerful
Wolverines a battle for the Confer-
3nce crown. The Buckeyes have al-
ready scored dual-meet victories over1
Indiana (611/2 to 421/2) and Illinois]
(68 to 38) while Michigan has shown,
tremendous balanced power in win-
ning the State A.A.U. and a triangular
meet with Michigan Normal at M.S.C.
Professor Phil Diamond may be
the only recognized track prognosti-
Bator extant in Ann Arbor, but we
amateurs can't help trying our hands
now and then. Though the Michigan-
Ohio State meet' is still six days off
we have discovered that the Wolver-
ines will win by a margin of 12
points or more, the final score being
55 to 43, or better.
The battle between Owens and
Willis Ward, if we have guessed cor-
rectly, will be limited to two events,
the 60-yard sash, and the high
hurdles, with each taking a first
and third. Owens, however, is con-
ceded the position of high-point man

Whitey Wonsowitz is good enough
to guarantee the Buckeyes a first
place in the pole vault, and Walker,
who has done 6 feet, 4 inches, should
take the high jump with Ward not
entering that event.E
Michigan's strength in the 440, 880,j
mile, and two mile should be enough,t
coupled with a fair share of seconds
and thirds, to give her the decision.;
At least it will be the best track meet4
held in Ann Arbor before the Big

Track Team Wins By Lare
Score Over State And Ypsilanti

Michigan's track team demonstrat-
ed an overwhelming force Friday
night in a triangular meet with Mich-
igan State and State Normal, to es-
tablish a new scoring record for the
annual event with 721/2 points as the
Spartans collected 241/3 points to
26 1/6 for the Hurons..
The Wolverine squad, intact for the
first time, captured seven firsts in the
eleven events, with the other schools
each collecting two wins, but the only
record-breaking times were made by
the visitors. -
Bill Zepp, Normal's distance ace,
turned in the oustanding perform-
ance of the meet in soundly trouncing
his old rival, Tom Ottey, of State, in
the two-mile event. Zepp trailed Ot-
tey for the first mile, then assumed a
lead which the Spartan could never
Zepp's sprint in the last lap gave
him a time of 9:21.0 to shatter his
own Field House mark of 9:21.8, set in
the recent State A.A.U. meet.
The other record-breaking per-
formance was registered in the half-
mile run in which Abe Rosekrantz of

Normal bested Howard Davidson,
Michigan sophomore, to break Harvey
Smith's record time of 1:55.1. Smith,
the Wolverine captain, did not enter.
Willis Ward, perennial Wolverine
leader, scored but one first, tying his
own Field House record of :08.2 in the
high hurdles. In the dash, only other
event in which he was entered, Ward
finished third as Sam Stoller, the
Michigan sophomore flash, got off to
an almost perfect start to win in 6:3.
Ward, leaving the blocks late, finished
behind Dave Barnes, another Wolver-
In the mile run Captain Harvey
Smith of Michigan put on a terrific
sprint in the stretch to'finish in 4:21.5.
Nelson Gardner, of State, bested Clay-
ton Brelsford, the Michigan sopho-
more, by a yard as Brelsford was
clocked at 4:23.
Stan Birleson, making his debut in
a Michigan uniform, ran the quar-
ter in 51.1, and ran anchor on the
mile relay team which won in 3:23.3.
Rex Van Teyck, in the shot put, and
Wade Allen, in the high jump, took
State's only firsts.
Michigan's other wins were in the
pole vault, which Dave Hunn took at
13 feet, 3 inches, and the 65-yard low
hurdles, won by Moreau Hunt.
