S.M.U. Accepts
Stanford's Bid
For Bowl Clash
Mustangs First Team West
Of Mississippi Chosen As
'Eastern' Representative
PALO ALTO, Dec. 2. - (1') -
Southern Methodist, gridiron con-
queror of the southwest, was Stan-
ford's choice today for the Rose Bowl
classic at Pasadena New Year's day.
Selection of the Mustangs and
their acecptance of the bid from the
Pacific Coast conference representa-
tive was announced last night, thus
ending a week of speculation as to the
challenging eleven.
Southern Methodist, undefeated
and untied, is the first team west of
the Mississippi River ever chosen as
an "eastern" representative in Rose
Bowl play.
Favors Passing Game
Noted as an eleven that uses for-
ward passes as an integral part of its
play, it earned the bid Saturday when
it defeated Texas Christian, previous-
ly undefeated squad, 20 to 14, in a
wild and wooly game.
Although Stanford lost to the Uni-
versity of California at Los Angeles,
7 to 6, in an early season game, it
walloped California 13 to 0. Cali-
fornia hadwonrnine straight games,
and topped all Pacific Coast teams,
until it bumped up against "Bobby"
Grayson, and his Stanford pals.
The invitation to southern Metho-
dist was extended by Al Masters,
Stanford graduate manager, over
long distance telephone.
Accept With Pleasure
James Stewart, director of athletics
at the Texas institution, conferred
quickly with S.M.U. officials after
Masters called him and then called
back and said the Mustangs accepted
"with pleasure."
The negotiations were completed
within an hour.
Coach Claude "Tiny" Thornhill of
Stanford grinned broadly when he
was informed S.M.U. had accepted.
"We welcome a chance to match
gridiron tactics with Southern Meth-
odist," he said.
TwoLeaders Ineligible
Although Princeton was acknowl-
edged champion of the east, and
Minnesota held an equally important
spot in the mid-west, neither was
available for Rose Bowl play because
of agreements with other schools.
'When it won over Texas Christian,
Southern Methodist virtually cinched
the Rose Bowl bid.
S. M. U. became Southern Cali-
fornia's popular choice for the "east-
ern" representative when it beat the
strong U. C. L. A. team, conquerors
of Stanford, 21 to 0.

Jay Berwanger Or
Bill Renner In Line
For Big Ten Honor
With the 1935 grid season for the
most part history, midwestern fans
are centering their attention this
week on the choosing of the most val-
uable player in the Western Confer-
ence and the Monday-morning quar-
terbacks are engrossed in speculation
as to whether Jay Berwanger or Bill
Renner was more valuable to his re-
spective team.
It is generally conceded by observ-
ers that the annual award to the
"most valuable" should go to one of
these two, the alleged experts feeling
that no other one man had as much
to do with his team's record as either
Berwanger or Renner.
Chicago, Michigan Tied
Both Chicago and Michigan fin-
ished the season with two Confer-
ence victories and a trio of losses.
Berwanger, however, was a unani-
mous choice for All-Conference half-
back and is generally conceded an
All-American post.
The value of the hard driving back
to his team, however, and that of
Renner's seems upon close examina-
tion to differ slightly.
The Maroon star gained his prom-
inence mainly through his great ball
carrying while playing with an in-
different eleven. Berwanger was
hailed as a star his first season but
did not reach top form until this year
when his playing was instrumental in
Chicago's wins. Against Ohio State
Berwanger played such a stellar game
that the Maroons led the Buckeyes at
half time. It was the same Ber-
wanger that scored the seven points
to give Chicago a win over Illinois.
All through the year this elusive Ber-
wanger worried opponents with his
running and truly deserves fame.
Renner Was Great Leader
On the other hand. Michigan's Ren-
ner did not establish himself as a
dangerous ball carrier - few Wolver-
ine quarterbacks ever have. At the
start of the season he was most great-
ly hearlded as a passer and later on
also proved himself a kicker of note.
But it was neither passing nor kick-
ing that made Renner as valuable as
he was. Instead it was his deter-
mined spirit to keep playing his best
throughout the entire game, this
same spirit spreading throughout the
Wolverines ranks while Bill was in
the game, that brings Renner most
of his consideration.
Without Renner Michigan was
helpless. With Renner the Wolver-
ines formed a fighting football team
that, although pushed back, just dug
in and asked for more. Whether or
not he will be judged the Big Ten's
"most valuable" remains to be seen
but most experts seem agreed that he
was one of the most outstanding
players of the Mid-west this season.

reign here started it off by negotiat-

Varsity hockey six was the only
Michigan team to win a Western

Varsity went after this mark, but
their best effort was 1:37.2. Due
to the fact that the Varsity has been
brought along under wraps, for the
big meets of next semester, however,
this mark was a pleasant surprise
to Coach Mann. With Paul Keeler
and Mark McCarthy taking their
places in the Varsity lineup, the time
should fall perceptibly, and no one is
conceding victory to the yearlings.
Mowerson Coming Up
The husky Mowerson, after only
two weeks of practice drills, is lead-
ing the veteran dashmen, and should
go places in Conference competition
this season. Frank Barnard, na-

the free-style this year, is still being

consideration. Penalties for viola-

(varsity wrestling Coach)
(Editor's Note : This is the first of a
series of articles by Coach Clifford
Keen to appear in The Daily).
Thereyare several splendid rea-
sons why every boy should know
something of the great sport of
wrestling and practice it.
It has long been known that physi-
cal exercise is necessary for the con-
tinuance of health. No other sport
excels wrestling as a means of physi-
cal development and as a healthful
exercise. It makes a strong, healthy,
beautiful physique out of a weak,
sickly and ugly body. Educators,
and all who have given thought to
life's greatest blessings, recognize
that good health heads the list as
life's richest possession.
Without health other accomplish-
ments may have no value, since
health is usually essential in the prop-
er execution of any worth while en-
Has Great Moral Values
Almost as important as the physi-
cal characteristics of this sport is its
great moral values. "A healthy body
harbors a healthy mind" is a time
honored adage. The best elixir for
a timid underdeveloped, bashful boy
is a good dose of scientific wrestling
instruction. A certain self-confidence
is acquired by the element of physical
competition in wrestling.
Conquering anopponent on the
mat, or the proper execution of one
of the innumerable holds, develops
confidence, initiative and a conquer-
ing spirit. It endows him with many
faculties that will be beneficial to him
in encountering the problems of life.
The conquering spirit invades the
mind. One resolves to attack the evil
influences of life, - bad habits, and
all forms of dissipation must go.
Wrestling puts a premium on endur-
ance, strength and clean living.
In applying all the holds, trips,
locks, counters and counterattacks

which are used in wrestling, every
muscle of the human mechanism is
brought into play. If a muscle fibre
lies dormant for a long period of time,
it perishes. If a nerve cell is not
used, likewise, it fails to function.
When a muscle is exerted it affects
those muscles which are in close prox-
imity by the circulation of blood.
Brain Cells Benefitted
The cells of the brain are also bene-
fited by this physical exercise, since
the blood nourishes the brain. It is
reasonable to assume that the educa-
tional value of various forms of
physical education is attained
through the development of motor
skills, self-control, muscular and or-
ganic health and strength, and the
quickening of a high sense of fair
Under careful and intelligent sup-
ervision of school authorities, wrest-
ling should be accorded a place on the
calendar of sports, not only in the
colleges but in every preparatory
school, high school and even in the
lower grades of our public schools.

Fine Portraiture Since 1890

Following, the good old American3
custom of choosing an all-star team
at the end of a major sports season,
the officials of the Intramural Sports
Building have combined their talents
with those of the local scribes and,
after many long conferences, have
emerged with an All-Star Fraternity
Speedball Team for the first time in
Expecting a deluge of phone calls
and letters asking why Zilch wasn't
chosen when everybody knows that
he's better than Whosis, the com-
mittee wishes to make clear the fact
that it understands that no such se-
lection can please everyone, but de-
mands recognition from careful ob-
servation and intense interest in mak-
ing the choices.
Scrutiny Is Close
Every man who participated in any
contests this year came under the
watchful eye of one or more officials
and the squad was selected only after
a close scrutiny of the season's play
was made. No individual was placed
on the team merely because he star-
ed in one or two contests. Consis-
tency throughout the season was re-
quired for recognition.
Theta Chi, besides winning the
championship, also came through
with four places on the first team.
Rod and Doc Howell and Bill Wells
were outstanding in every game, dis-
playing a thorough knowledge of the
finer points of the game, and con-
sequently have been awarded for-
ward positions. Walker Graham
proved to be the best goalie in the
league, being almost unbeatable even
on the penalty kicks.
Kent Bradford of the Psi Upsilon
house and Elbert Haight of the Delta
Upsilon team were selected as the

other forwards. Both are exception-
ially fast, excellent dribblers, and
hard shots.
Defense Pair Sturdy
The defense pair were both mem-
bers of the Phi Beta Delta squad.
Herman Fishman and Al Blumen-
feld are two rough, tough boys who
are at their best when the going is
hardest. They are powerful kickers
and had the knack of setting up the
ball for their forwards to pick up.!
