Lowrey Names Starting Lineup For London Game Sal



Hockey Stars
Drill Shalek
Bert Smith Gets Call At
Defense; Wolverines To
Polish Off Attack
The Michigan line-up for the open-
ing hockey game of the season with
London Saturday evening was prac-
tically settled last night when Coach
Eddie Lowrey named big Bert Smith
to start at defense along with Captain
Larry David.
Irving Shalek, who returned to
form Tuesday night after a poor
showing the previous week, was put
through a long drill in the nets yes-
terday afternoon by Johnny Jeewell
and Keith Crossman, former Michi-
gan star and at present a member of
Ford Holzbaugh in the Michigan-
Ontario hockey league.
Goalie Improves
For an hour-and-a-half Crossman
and Jewell instructed Shalek in the
fine points of goal minding as both
broke down the ice together and pep-
pered him with a bevy of long and
short shots. Shalek showed consid-
erable improvement over his early
season form as he frequently broke
up two men attacks with well timed
saves. His principal weakness is lack
of experience but he is fast mastering
the goalie's technique and should
have a successful season if he is not
the victim of too many defensive
Lowrey favors him over Reed Low,
the other candidate for the goalie's
post because of his superior form and
a more adept use of his feet.
Team Strong
With the selection of Shalek and
Smith, the Wolverine starting six
will face the invading London Club
Saturday with Vic Heylier at center
ice, Dick Berryman and Johnny Fab-
ello on the wings, Captain Larry Dav-
id and Bert Smith defensemen, and
Irving Shalek in goal.
The team will be one of the strong-
est in recent years and will have Dick
Griggs, Jack Merrill, and Dick Fones
as reserve forwards, and Bob Simp-
son and Fritz Radford for defense
Finishing touches in preparation
for the opening encounter will be ap-
plied in tonight's practice as the Wol-
verines polish off their offensive for-
mations and perfect their usual im-
pregnable defense.
I-M Wrestling
Tourney Draws
80 Contenders
About 80 men have entered the 1935
All-University wrestling tournament
to be held December 16, 17, and 18
in the Intramural Building. The
finals will be staged on December 18.
This meet will aid Coach Cliff Keen
to select outstanding prospects for
this year's Varsity and freshman
grappling squads.
The tournament is essentially an
open one with any regularly enrolled
student eligible to compete except,
of course, letter winners. All men
who are trying out for the Varsity or
freshman teams are strongly urged
to compete in the tourney.nLack of
experience does not bar any con-
testant from wrestling.
The various weights in which com-
petitors will wrestleare as follows:
118, 126, 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, and
heavyweight. Two pounds overweight
however will be permitted.
Entries will weigh in between 5 and
6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16 either at
Waterman Gym or the Intramural
Building. Anyone not weighing in at

this time will be eliminated from the
The length of all final bouts will
be ten minutes while preliminary
matches, which will be completed on
December 16 and 17, are scheduled
for seven minutes. In case of a draw
overtime periods of two minutes each
will be held.
In addition to the regular Intra-
mural Department rules, no compe-
titor will be allowed to wrestle in
more than one weight. Varsity grap-
plers will act as referees.
First and second place awards will
be donated by the Intramural De-

DR. FRANK LYNAM, team physi-
cian for Michigan athletic squads,
for one is prepared to say that there
is no such thing as the "glass ath-
lete,"-an athlete apparently more
susceptible to injury than the aver-
age competitor.
There is no physiological basis for
such a classification, Dr. Lynam says,
as he adds that three factors have
bearing upon the likelihood of an
athlete's being injured in competition,
his ruggedness, luck, and an element
which Dr. Lynam classifies as "bal-
ance" although often used as synony-
mous with "timing."
Luck's influence is apparent, Dr.
Lynam says, as an athlete may be
put in such a position in which it is
inevitable that he be injured, as in a
football scrimmage when his leg is
unavoidably clipped from the side.
Ruggedness is also apparent as a fac-
tor in preventing injury as individuals
vary in the natural protection offered
them as they vary in build.
"Balance," however, remains to Dr.
Lynam the most important determin-
ant of an athlete's likelihood of in-
jury. It is this "balance" which re-
places what is ordinarily considered
to be relaxation in preventing injury,
as that "sixth sense" of athletics not
only keeps the individual from falling
into a dangerous position but as it
actual minimizes danger in a situa-
tion which otherwise might result in
As synonymous with "timing" Dr.
Lynam believes that balance is the
element which keeps an athlete from
getting into a position which will re-
sult in his injury. Or, as in a sport
of bodily contact like football, it is his
"balance" which will enable an in-
dividual to drive into position and
bring a ball-carrier down with an
effective tackle and yet avoid injury.
"Balance" is for the most part in-
nate, Dr. Lynam says, but it is not
that it is impossible to develop the
trait. And as it can be developed
only by constant practice in a given
situation, it is Dr. Lynam's theory
that not only will better blockers and
tacklers be the result of constant
practice in those departments, but
the danger of injury will correspond-
ingly be lessened.
Varsity Swim

Debouis Gains
Over Leopold;
Downs Kayser


Practically all of the characteristics,
of the pugilistic profession - slug-
ging, scientific boxing, left jabs, jar-
ring rights, sparring, haymakers -
were demonstrated by the courageous
young freshman fighters in the an-
nual yearling boxing show held yes-
terday afternoon in the Waterman
Gym. A small but enthusiastic crowd
attended the card.
In the main bout or Uhe afternoon,
Lyvio Debouis, Massachusetts state
champion from Fitchburg, pounded
out a close decision over Ben Leo-
pold of Glenville, N. Y. The aggres-
sor, Debouis, unleashed a fast, hard-
punching attack which consistently
kept Leopold in trouble. However,
the New York boy's left hand proved
to be quite damaging. Twice Debouis
got Leopold against the ropes and
slugged him at will.
Excite Crowd
The 126 match between Richard
Siewers of Detroit and Leo Kayser
who hails from Birmingham, Ala.,
brought the heretofore quiet crowd to
its feet shouting words of encourage-
ment to the two boxers. Kayser man-
aged to eke out the decision. Pos-
sessing a long left, Siewers kept jab-
bing his opponent to ward off his
furious charges which were featured
by a "Levinsky" haymaker coming
from the floor. Both boys stood toe
to toe and slugged it out with Kay-
ser's blows proving to be the more
effective. Siewers' rally in the last
round managed to draw blood from
Kayser's nose.
Displaying a Louis left jab, Don
Richardson, negro, from Detroit,
bombarded Harold Freedman, New
York, to win the decision in the 140-
pound class. Richardson gave Freed-
man a bloody nose in the first round
and by the end of the third frame
Freedman's face was a mass of blood.
Rosen Beats Rawitz
The curtain raiser found Dexter
Rosen of Buffalo, N. Y. whipping Irv-
ing Rawitz, Newark, N. J. Rosen's
left was too much for Rawitz. Both
boys weighed 142. In the other 140
pound fight, Dick Perry, Plainsville,
N. Y., beat Bob Gere of Kingston, N.Y.
At 135 Van Wolf, Cloversville, N. Y.,
defeated Hugh McCormick of Detroit.
The 155-pound tussle between Don,
Harper, Toledo, and Robert Trowell,
Detroit, was won by the Ohioan.
Maurice Simon, another New Yorker,
threw enough leather to win the 114-
pound nod over Richard Waldemeyer
of Camden, Mich.

The Bounding Basque of sunny
Spain, namely Paulino Uzcudun, Fri-
day night will" step from his corner
in the ring at Madison Square Garden
into the greatest barrage of lefts and
rights he has ever faced and on the
outcome of the meeting clings the
answer to the prominent question of
whether or not Joe Louis can hit as'
hard as his previous appearances
would seem to show.1
Few expect Paulino to win. The
importance that is attached to the1
bout - and that it is important is
proved by the fact that it will
draw the fifth largest indoor crowd
in the history of the sport -lies in
how long the veteran campaigner can
stand up before the withering blows
that have brought Louis the repu-
tation he has. In his last three major
starts the Brown Bomber has knocked
out two ex-champions of the world
and one wild-swinging fish peddler,3
Max Baer, Primo Carnera and King-
fish Levinsky.
The Basque has never been knocked'
off his feet and he is now 36 and has
met the three fighters mentioned
above as well as other human power-
houses including Max Schmeling. The
latter signed to meet the Detroit
Negro next June two days ago and
if Friday's fiasco ends as many ex-
pect - with Paulino on the canvas -
the second million dollar gate within
a year should be written into the
The Uzcudun go is perhaps the
toughest Louis has had yet as far
as the testing of his offensive power
is concerned. A knockout will fill
Yankee Stadium next summer. Uz-
cudun's staying on his feet to the
finish will put a slight tarnish on
the Bomber's spectacular rise. At
any rate pre-fight dopesters are
unanimous in saying that the Basque
is in for the busiest evening of his
Miranda Downs Bowler
In Indoor Tennis Match
The All-Campus Cosmopolitan In-
door Tennis Championship drew to
a close in a hotly contested battle
between Dalmacio Miranda and
Michael Bowler. Miranda rallied to
take the last set by the narrow mar-
gin of 6-4. The scores of the other
sets were 8-6, 6-3, 5-7, 5-7 and 6-4.
George and Fuad Jurdak, brothers,

Michigan Pucksters Expect
To Meet Detroit Team In
January At Olympia
That the Michigan hockey team
will meet Wayne University sometime
in January at the Olympia in De-
troit was virtually assured last night
when Coach Eddie Lowrey announced
that a satisfactory financial agree-
ment had been reached by all parties
The exact date of the game has
not yet been determined, but it will
in all probability be set for the
middle of January either before or
after the first Minnesota series the
week-end of the 16th, and 17th.
Wayne is coached by Jack Tomp-
kins, former Michigan All-American
goalie and a prominent figure in
amateur hockey. The Wayne sextet
plays in a league with the University
of Detroit and Assumption College of
Windsor and experienced a fairly
successful season last year.
The Wayne team is led by Stan-
ley Newstead, former All-City for-
ward from Cooley High in Detroit,
who played in a practice game against
the Wolverines last year.
A Michigan-Wayne game will draw
a large crowd to the Olympia, officials
of both schools feel, and will afford
Michigan supporters in Detroit an
opportunity to see the Wolverine
hockey team in action.
At the same time that Lowrey made
his announcement concerning the
Wayne game, he spiked the possibili-
ties of a series with Princeton during
the Christmas holidays. Refusal
of the alumni of both schools to un-
derwrite the series and difficulty in
obtaining either the Olympia in De-
troit or the Stadium in Chicago
forced the abandoning of the plan.
Negotiations for bringing the Uni-
versity of Toronto's puck team to
Ann Arbor are still going on, Lowrey
said, and something definite will be
arranged for the last two home games
before the opening tilt of the season
Saturday with London.
Iowa State College, taking to the
air in a big way, completed 22 of 33
passes for 'a .667 average against
Kansas, but Kansas, attempting
three, completed only one good for a
50-yard gain-and the only touch-
down of the game.
