Eddie Lowrey at the conclusion of

Lowrey put the team through a
stiff drill as he prepared for the Big
Ten opener with the powerful Gopher
team. Smarting under two defeat
at the hands of the University of
Manitoba, Minnesota, will be primed
to take Michigan into camp, and thE
Wolverines will have to depend upo
stamina and courage to withstand
the speed and power of the Gopher
With the exception of Reed Low
the starting six which faced Chat-
ham Saturday, will make the trip
and in addition, Bob Simpson, spare
defenseman and Johnny Fabello and
Dick Griggs, reserve forwards, wil
accompany the team.
Take One Goalie
Irving Shalek who received h
first baptism under fire Saturda
night, has not only been named a
the starting goalie, but the only ne
minder to make the trip. Lowrey be
lieves that Shalek has the essential
necessary to become a good goalie
and has placed his confidence in him
to repell the fast skating northmen
Minnesota has another one of it
perenially strong hockey teams and
with the exception of the recent Man-
itoba series has had a highly success-
ful season.
Goalie Bud Wilkinson, gridiron
handy man who performed for the
Gophers last fall serves as co-captain
of the team, along with Ted Mitchell,
forward, and has developed into a
very capable net custodian.
.Have Three Lines
Minnesota wilattempt toout man
the Wolverines with Coach Larry
Armstrong making use of tgree for-
ward lines and alternating his de-
fense which consists of five husky
stalwarts, among whom is the gallop-
ing Glenn Seidell.
Captain Larry David will be lead-
ing his mates back to his own
stamping grounds in the forthcoming
two game series and nothing would
please the Hibbing bouncer better
than to knock off the Norsemen.
If the Wolverines can gain an even
split with Larry Armstrong's crew in
the series at Minneapolis, they will
have an excellent chance of annex-
ing their second consecutive Confer-
ence title when they play host to the
Gophers at Ann Arbor in February.
The same team which opened
against Chatham, with the excep-
tion of Shalek, will start on the Area
ice at Minneapolis Thursday night,
Lowrey said after Monday's drill.
Keen Selects
Mat Team For
Eastern Trip
Since the elimination bouts for

starting positions on the Varsity
wrestling team were so close, Coach
Cliff Keen is still undecided upon the
aggregation which will make the
Eastern trip to wrestle against Frank-
lin and Marshall and Penn State this
coming Friday and Saturday. The
team will leave tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.
In the 126-pound match Malcolm
Marks and Ed Slocum wrestled to a
draw. Both boys exhibited some fine
grappling. John Speicher managed
to gain a 2:30 minute time advantage
over Hal Wilson in the 118-pound
bracket. Due to a hard scholastic
schedule Ed Kellman, 118-pound
winner in the New York Athletic
Clubmeet, will probably not make
the trip. Captain Wally Heavenrich
gained ay2:05 time advantage over
Dan Taylor to win the close 145-
pound battle.
The contested matches in addition
to other considerations will determine
the basis upon which Coach Keen
will make his final selections. Allen
Rubin, 126-pound entry in the New
York meet, will probably be left home
because of an arm injury which has
kept him from gaining sufficient

rTO WHOEVER Writes This Column,
Dear Sir:
Did it ever occur to you that Mr. Larry Snyder, thinclad coach at Ohio
State, might have an ulterior motive in running the Big Ten Track Meet
at night? Did it ever occur to you that this selfsame Snyder person is,
or at least was, connected with the Ohio publicity department and that
publicity Writers have never displayed a lasting propensity to record the
truth. That is why they are publicity writers, I guess.
Now maybe you are not aware of the sinister plan of the Buckeye
mentor, and if not, I feel that it is my absolute duty to expose
this Snyder person as a scheming plotter who is trying to do our
Wolverines out of their just due and the Big Ten cinder path title.
I am a one hundred per cent Michigan rooter and also think that we
should have a boxing team because it is such a manly sport and develops
such a feeling of independence.as I can well attest to having but recently
'inished Farmer Brown's combination boxing and wrestling course by
mail. By the way I intend to enter the next All-Campus boxing tournament
and win one of those peachy Intramural medals. (Editor's Note: Letter
slightly deleted at this point).
Furthermore if the Ohio State Athletic Board does not try
to keep everybody fooled into thinking that their college is a real
educational institute which does not give a blank for whether a man
is an athlete or not, then they will say that Mr. Jesse Owens is
eligible for next semester and then the Ohios will become the next
toughest team to the Wolves in the meet. And then - with just
those few added points that they expect to get by their diabolical
'run it at night plan' they may just manage to nose out our thinclads
for the cinder crown.
P. S.: I would like very much to become a sports writer. As you can
,eadily appreciate from my letter, I know all the sports expressions and will
lave my ring experience as something tangible to go on. -F.
Sports Desk, Michigan Daily,
January 11, 1936.
When Bill Reed gets over the mumps I would suggest that you drop
n and have a talk with him regarding your joining our staff. In the mean-
ime why don't you devote all your time to acquiring 'ring guile.',
In re your mention of the Ohio State plot to prevent Michigan from
vinning the Big Ten track meet at Columbus May 22 and 23, I can say
;hat I hardly agree with you.
Ohio State runs some of their dual meets at night it is true
and would therefore have more experience with night meets than
Michigan, but the reason they run them at night is not to outfox
or outsmart anybody out of anything except the customers out of
the admission prices. In other words, Ohio State officials feel that
they draw a bigger gate at night than in the daytime and thus run
the meets then.
As a matter of fact, the lighting equipment which the Buckeyes have
would be entirely inadequate for a Big Ten meet and attempts to rent the
Lighting system which is installed in the Toledo ball park have been brought
to a temporary standstill, at least, because of the high rental Toledo
demands. The present price would negate any increase in attendance.
The prospect of a night Conference meet, particularly if it will not be a
financial success, is not a pleasing one to real track fans.
In the first place the probability of any records being broken
would be decreased to a minimum because it is a well-known fact
that the extra stimulus supplied by the sun and hot air working on R
a trackman's muscles gives him that extra something which makes
him a record breaker.
At night, with the chill of evening fallen over the field, that
stimulus would be absent and the dampness of the asmosphere would
combine with this lack of stimulus to make the athlete's best per-
formances next to impossible.
Two years ago Michigan and Ohio State met in a dual meet at Columbus
under an improvised lighting system and most of the Wolverines disliked the
business intensely. The principle objections seemed to be to the cold,
although the meet was held earlier in May than the Big Ten meet will be
this year.
Michigan was host to the Conference meet last year and
ran it off very well in the daytime before large and enthusiastic
crowds. Columbus is a good deal larger town than Ann Arbor
and there should certainly be enough interest to warrant the
exclusion of a night meet if it is at all possible.

So you see, Mr. Fairplay, I don't agree with your bitter accusation of
Ohio and its officials. The only thing I know about Mr. Snyder is that
last year when I lost my press pass and couldn't ever get into the stadium
in Columbus, he came down to the gate and personally escorted me to the
Michigan bench from which point I watched the entire game.

Frosh, Varsity
Swimmers Will
Vie Tomorrow

New Michigan Goalie


Have Grea
Of Natators


A rivalry that began late in Sep-
tember as friendly joshing has de-
veloped into a hymn of hate that will
be sungtomorrow night in the In-
tramural pool when the Varsity and
freshman teams go through a regula-
tion dual meet.
There will be no love lost when
the yearlings, boasting by far the
greatest number of stars ever to
hit Ann Arbor in one year, two of
whom are junior transfers with na-
tionally recognized reputations, seek
conclusions with Coach Matt Mann's
National Collegiate and Big Ten
Tie Outcome Possible
Tomorrow night's meet will be one
of those that is decided on paper al-
most as much as in the pool --in
other words, judicious placing of men
in certain events will go a long way
towards determining the ultimate
victor. On the basis of past perform-
ances, minus the psychological ele-
ment, a 42-42 tie has been developed
as a possible outcome by several qual-
ified prognosticators.
The first-year men have lost the
services of Bill Farnsworth, National
Interscholastic record holder for the
50-yard free-style, through illness.
but with more versatile material at
hand than the Varsity can boast,
they appear capable of pulling
through with a win over the team
that is favored to capture Michigan's
seventh National Collegiate title in
ten years next March.
Drysdale Coaching Yearlings
Taylor Drysdale, National Colle-
giate back-stroke champion for three
years and world's record holder for
the 300-yard individual medley swim,
who is in charge of the freshman
swimmers, has not announced a defi-
nite line-up for every event, and is
expected to have a few tricks up his
Free-style performers for the year-
ling squad will be chosen from Ed
Kirar and Baker Bryant, late of Wis-
consin and Ohio State, respectively,

Retzlaff Will Knock
Out Louis - Gov. Langer
CHICAGO, Jan. 13.- (A) -- At
least one man thinks Charley
Retzlaff will defeat Joe Louis -
and by a knockout -Friday night
in the Chicago Stadium.
He is former Gov. William
Langer, of North Dakota, and
local pride may have something
to do with his feeling. Retzlaff
comes from Leonard, N. D.
"Retzlaff is a vastly improved
fighter." Langer said, "and I firm-
ly believe he will knock out Louis.
I think he will knock him out in
the second round."
