Sprint Relay Teams Are
Rated Number One
Eleven members of Michigan's
1934-35 swimming team, National
and Big Ten champions, were award-
ed places on the National Collegiate
Athletic Association's All-American
team for the past year, it was re-
vealed yesterday.
Four of those honored, Bob Renner,
Ogden Dalrymple, Tex Robertson and
Taylor Drysdale, have completed
their collegiate careers, while the
other seven Capt. Frank Fehsenfeld,
Der Johnston, Ben Grady, Ned Dief-
endorf, Jack Kasley, Fred Cody and
Frank Barnard are back this year.
Robertson, Drysdale, Dalrymple,
Renner, Johnston and Fehsenfeld are
repeaters from the previous year's
team, with Drysdale, Dalrymple and
Renner being selected for the third
time. The remainder of the list hon-
ored this year had their first taste
of collegiate competition last season.
Bryant Among Chosen Few
Baker Bryant, formerly of Ohio
State but now a member of Coach
Matt Mann's first-year squad, is also
among the chosen few.
Drysdale in the backstroke, Kasley
in the breaststroke and the Michigan
medley and sprint relay teams were
awarded first position in their events.
All are National Collegiate titlehold-
ers. The medley trio was composed
of Dalrymple, Drysdale, and Kasley,
while Robertson, Renner, Drysdale
and Dalrymple made up the sprint
Robertson was placed third in the
220-yard freestyle and fourth in the
quarter mile. Dalrymple earned the
third spot in the century sprint and
eighth in the 50-yard event.
Fehsenfeld Nosed Out
His performances in the National
meet at Boston earned Barnard
fourth place in the 1500-meter and
220-yard freestyle races and the sixth
position in the quarter-mile.
One of the biggest surprises on the
selections was the placing of Capt.
Fehsenfeld in second place among the
divers behind Bill Busby of Iowa. The
two Big Ten rivals met three times
last year, Busby sneaking out a de-
cision in the Conference champion-
ships and Fehsenfeld coming out as
National Collegiate champion in the
high- and low-board events at Bos-
Lost By Hair-Breadth
Edward Kennedy, Columbia coach,
who makes the selections for the
N.C.A.A., writes that the selection
of the best diver was perhaps the
most difficult to make, but after much
conferring with judges and officials
gives Busby "a hair-breadth's edge"
over the Wolverine leader. In view
of the record of competition between
the two performers, his choice seems
a little off-color.
Another doubtfuul choice puts Cody
in fourth place in the backstroke
behind Drysdale, Charlie Salie of
Ohio State and Jack Westerfield of
Iowa. Cody lost to Salie at Colum-
bus just after an illness, but de-
feated him while taking third in the
Nationals and second in the Confer-
ence meet. Salie failed to place in
the latter meet.
Michigan's three other varsity div-

ers of last season, Grady, Diefendorf,
and Johnson followed Fehsenfeld in
that order.

Tonight In First Of Vacation Tilts

Dear Santa: I have served Meechigan well for more than thirty years.
I have devised a football system which has everything. And I've done it all
on my own, without your help. But this year, with football crowds beginning
to stay away from our stadium in increasing numbers, I would like you to
bring me some nice retired Stadium bonds.

to use an all-American sparkplug on my football team next fall.

My Dear Santa Claus: I am not fully cognizant of what my immediate
superior has requested of you for the Yuletide season, but if you will favor
him next fall with some moments of good fortune on the gridiron we'll be
pinning their ears back like never before. For my own part, I would only
like a fine new necktie.

Dear Santa: Could you fix it so that I could have another coaching
job to go with the one I have now. It'd a shame to be wasting all this
material on one squad. -Matt Mann,
Dear Santa Claus: Please don't let anyone know I said this, but I think
we're all set for a number of years in my department. But just so that
there can be no mistake, please give us an understanding faculty.

Hockey Summaries




Michigan's basketball team, victor-
ious in their three starts so far this
season, engages a capable Mt. Union
quintet tonight at Alliance, 0.; in
the first of its four Christmas vaca-
tion tilts which will end the pre-
Conference training season.
The Varsity, handicapped by the
loss of John Gee, first string center,
meets Western Reserve at Cleveland
tomorrow night and is favored to
run up its string of wins to fivej
straight withwvictories overtthe two
Ohio fives, which, while they have
good teams, have not shown enough
to down the highly improved Wol-
Coach Cappon has named the same
five that started against Michigan
State last week to take the floor
against Mt. Union. It includes John
and Earl Townsend, John Jablonski,
Capt. ChelsoTamagno, and George
Rudness. John Townsend will do
the jumping for this five.
Homeceming For Townsends
Michigan's real test will come in
the Butler contest Jan. 2 at the
Butler Field House in Indianapolis.
The Townsend brothers will be mak-
ing their first appearance in their
home town since they graduated from
Technical High School and both have
expressed the belief that a win over
the Bulldogs would be the final sign
necessary to mark the Varsity as real
contenders for the Big Ten cage
Coach Tony Hinkle is well ac-
quaintedawith the Townsend's style
and at least their part in the Mich-
igan attack will be no surprise to him.
The two brothers, on the other hand,
are well acquainted with the Butler
team, having most of the regulars in
high school, as well as Coach Hinkle's
style of basketball.
Butler has played three games so
far, winning only one. However, the
Bulldogs are known as slow starters
and John and Earl believe that they
will be pointing for Michigan. In the
opening game and against Pittsburgh
last Monday, Roscoe Batts, offensive
star, scored seven baskets. He is an
expert on push-in shots and should
give the rangy Wolverines their first
real competition off the backboard.
Gee Counted On
John Gee is expected to be back in
the starting lineup and his great
height is counted on to give the Var-
sity the winning margin, for the But-
ler team is handicapped by lack of a
tall center. Armstrong, a rejuvenated
guard, will be jumping against Gee.
He tops the six-foot three inch mark
and is dangerous on push-in shots.
Capt. Toy Jones and Ralph Braf-
ford fill the guard positions. The
fifth man is doubtful. Hinkle has
been trying all of his forwards trying
to find a running mate for Batts but
so far has been unsuccessful.
The Wolverines will close their pre-
Conference schedule against Toledo
University on Jan. 3 at Toledo and
will return to Ann Arbor to prepare
for the Big Ten opener against In-
diana Jan. 6 which will be played at
Yost Field House.
Three Smiths are included in the
squad of 22 eastern players who will
opposeCoast stars New Year's Day in
San Francisco. They are Riley of
Alabama, Dick of Minnesota, and
Ernie of N.Y.U.

Earl (above) and John Townsend,
running mates at the forward po-1
sitions on the Michigan cage team,
will be playing their first collegiate
game in their home town when the
Wolverines meet the Butler Bull-
dogs on Jan. 2 at Indianapolis.

Two hitch-hikers from the corn-,
fields of Iowa by the names of Earl
Thomas and Paul Cameron are the
main reasons why wrestling enthu-
siasts claim that Michigan is on her
way back to the top of the "grunt
and groan" heap in the Big Ten.
It happened like this. After win-
ning the 118-pound N.A.A.U. title
two years ago, Earl, brother of Blair
Thomas, a former Michigan mat cap-
tain, wrote a letter to Coach Keen
informing him that he wanted to
wrestle but didn't have any money.
Keen told Earl that he could help him
out and Thomas began "thumbing"
his way to Michigan. Keen got Earl
a job in the Ford Motor Company
where he worked all summer.
Without any hesitation Thomas
mentioned Cameron's abilities as a
wrestler and as a result Cameron took
to the highway bound for Michigan.
During the summer and early fall
Cameron managed to earn enough
money at Ford's to register at Mich-

Keen Selects
Starting Team
For N.Y. Meet
Capt. Heavenrich To Lead
Wrestlers In Season's
Opener Jan. 3
Three of the letter winners on last
year's wrestling squad', including;
Captain Walter Heavenrich, were
named among the eight grapplers to
compete in the season's opener to be
held Jan. 3 against the New York Ath-
letic Club at New York, according to
the lineup announced yesterday by
Coach Cliff Keen. The team will
leave for New York from Ann Arbor
at 7:00 a.m., Jan. 1.
The wrestlers picked to make the
trip and the weights in which they
are entered are as follows: 118-lbs.,
Edward Kellman; 126-lbs., Allen Rub-
in; 135-lbs., Earl Thomas; 145-lbs.,
Captain Walter Heavenrich; 155-lbs.,
Louis Mascuruskus; 165-lbs., Frank
Bissell; 175-lbs., William Lowell, and
heavyweight, Harry Wright.
When asked about the prospects of
a successful season, Coach Keen an-
swered, "We're going to have a fair
team. There is a possibility that some
of the boys have a chance of im-
proving with steady practice. I real-
ly don't think the boys are ready for
a meet."
Undefeated in eight dual meet
matches while wrestling in the 135-
pound division, Heavenrich has been
shifted to the 145-pound bracket to
make room for Earl Thomas, winner
of the 118-pound N.A.A.U. champion-
ship in 1934. Heavenrich is expected
to lead the team again this year.
Frank Bissell, Varsity guard, who is
wrestling in the 165-pound class for
the second consecutive year, will
probably be able to better his last
year's record of five victories in eight
bouts. Harry Wright, heavyweight,
will bolster the team's strength after
missing a letter last year because of
scholastic difficulties.


The greatest sports stadium in the
world is planned at Flushing, N. Y.
The minimum seating capacity will
be 127,000 for football and baseball
and as much as 200,000 for boxing.

igan at the beginning of the second
semester. Therefore Cameron will
not be eligible for competition until
next semester. However all of the
Big Ten meets are scheduled for the
second semester. Cameron won the
115 and 95-pound Iowa state high
school titles in 1931 and 1935 respec-
tively. He gained his freshman nu-
merals at Iowa State College.
Thomas wrestles at 135 pounds,
while Cameron plans to enter the 126-
pound class.
