Conclusion Of Game
The badly battered Wolverine
hockey team, trying to recover from
the effect of their 7-1 drubbing,
planned to rest throughout the entire
day and then return to the wars
again tonight.
Swamped by a Minnesota team
that virtually outnumbered them, two
to one, Coach Eddie Lowrey's nine
man squad will race the Gophers in
the second game at 8:30 p.m. hoping
for the breaks, although hardly for-
casting a win. ,
Michigan needs tonight's game
badly if they are to remain in the
running for Conference title when
the two teams meet here in February.
Following tonight's game, barring
overtime, they will entrain immed-
iately for Ann Arbor and expect to ar-
rive back Saturday.
Johnny Jewell and Gib James,
former and future Michigan hockey
stars respectively, spent a long vigil
in the Coliseum last night awaiting
the report on the game. When they
finally got it at 1:30 a.m. they were
probably the most depressed people
in Ann Arbor, but they both held out
hope for the team tonight.

Tankmen 'Gone To
Dogs,' But Defeat
Is Not The Cause
Michigan's championship swim-
ming team has "gone to the dogs."
The reason is not, as first might
be suspected, Wednesday night's
humbling defeat at the hands of the
freshmen, but rather the fact that
Coach Matt Mann has taken a tip
from Florida race-tracks and has his
proteges chasing an electrically oper-
ated "rabbit" in the manner of thor-
oughbred greyhounds.
The "rabbit" consists of a brilliant-
ly colored small orange cloth fastened
to an endless rope stretching the
length of the pool about a yard above
the surface of the water. The rope
runs over frictionless wheels mounted
on metal frames at either end of
of the pool and is operated by a small
electric motor bolted to one of the
Ed Drew, veteran sprint man and
senior engineer, constructed the ap-
paratus, and has so figured the size
of the five wheels mounted on one
of the axles, that by moving the
rope from the largest wheel to the
smallest, the "rabbit" can be made
to travel the two lengths of the
pool at five speeds, carying from 27 to
37 seconds per fifty yards.
The idea of the pacer, according to
Coach Mann, is not to force the swim-

mers into going faster, but rather to
teach them to maintain a certain
steady speed and to release them from
mental fatigue that comes from
worrying as to how well they are
maintaining a given pace in swim-
ming long practice distances. After
drilling with the "rabbit" for a time,
a swimmer can go into a race and un-
consciously "feel" how fast he is go-
ing throughout the entire distance of
the event.

Purdue, I
The OT
{ --- By BILL REED
PURDUE'S Kessler and his jump-
ing-jack tactics, Indiana's Huff-
man, fast-breaking . offenses, close
checking in the back court have all
combined to lose Michigan's basket-
ball team two of its first three starts
in Conference competition, but it is,
the Wolverines' Big Ten schedule and
the schedule of the other teams in
the league which are going to be the
real stumbling block in the way of a
Conference title.
We do not believe that the two
defeats which the Varsity has
suffered are enough to put Mich-
igan out of the race. Both these
losses have come at the hands of
the two teams which have shown
themselves to be the class of the
Big Ten, so far at least, and it is
logical to believe that the Wol-
verines will regain lost ground in
the next few weeks against Chi-
cago, Iowa, and Minnesota.
Such an assumption, of course, is
based on the hope that the boys will
not become discouraged by their re-
verses, suffer any serious injuries, or
serious internal misunderstandings.
Without attempting to make any
excuses or conjure up any alibis it
can be said with much justification
that Michigan has the toughest
schedule of any of the title-contend-
ers and the ultimate winner of the
title is going to be determined largely
by the breaks of the schedule.
, Let us say that Indiana, Purdue,
Iowa, and Illinois has shown them-
selves to be the four strongest teams
in the Conference with the exception
of the Wolverines who certainly rate
along with these teams. The sched-
ules of these five schools line up in
this manner:
MICH.: Ind., Minn., Purdue. Chi-
cago, Iowa, Illinois.j
PURDUE: Chicago, O.S.U., Mich.,
Iowa, Minn., N. U.
IND.: Mich., N. U., Chicago, Minn.,
Wis., O.S.U.
IOWA: Ill., Chicago, O.S.U., Pur-
due, Mich., Wis.
ILLINOIS: Wis., Minn., O.S.U., N.
U., Mich.
These schedules give Purdue
games with two of the "Big Five,"
Indiana with only one, Illinois
is two, Iowa three, and Michigan
four. Each of the schools in the
Big Ten plays each of its oppon-1
ents twice so therefore Michigan
actually plays eight of its 12
games against top-notchers.
There will naturally be a diver-
gence of opinion on the rating of the1
"Big Five." Ohio State, Wisconsin;
and Northwestern are all good teams
and have better records than eitheri
Michigan or Illinois, but we feel thatF
they are not quite up to the standard,
of the other quintets. All three of
these teams have tough schedules,
O.S.U. playing four of the "Big Five,"
Wisconsin three, and Northwestern
It is in the hands of these three
teams and Michigan that the winner
of the Conference title lies. If these
quintets can win enough of their
games, and looks as if they will, con-
fusion will reign throughout the
league and the final games are go-
ing to find a number of the schools
all tied up in knots for the lead.
The weak sisters, which are known
to pull their share of upsets each
year, play more than their of the
first five. Minnesota hits four and

Chicago the same number.
For the Wolverines the prob-
lem is to avoid the tenseness that
a string of "crucial" games can
cause and of course to get back
their winning ways again. The
continual strain is boundto
cause trouble. The only real
breathers are coming up in the
next few weeks and they don't
seem to include such easy games.
Iowa, needless to say, is by no
means a set-up.
Following the final exam lay-off
the Varsity will run into Indiana,
Iowa, Purdue, and Illinois in a row.
This five-game string (Illinois must
be played twice) will be plenty im-
portant for the ultimate winner of
the crown is probably in this list.

Michigan Fears Haarlow
After 17 Point Scoring
Spree Against Hoosiers
Purdue's Boilermakers and In-
diana's Hoosiers ride atop the crest
of the Western Conference basket-
ball wave with 1000 per cent records
as the second week of Big Ten bas-
ketball competition merges into the
third. Indications are that these
teams, both conquerors of Michigan,
will still be deadlocked at the top of
the heap after Saturday night's
games. Purdue has an open date
and Indiana meets Minnesota at
This Saturday Indiana will meet
the Gophers at Minneapolis. The
Hoosiers ought to have no trouble in
maintaining their present winning
pace and should subdue the Minne-
sota quintet without much effort.
Swamp Gophers
Last Monday evening Minnesota
was conquered by Northwestern by
the overwhelming score of 45 to 24.
Indiana overcame Northwestern Uni-
versity in the second game of the
series so the Minneapolis game ought
to prove a practice session for the
Iowa travels to Columbus where
they will play a second game with the
Buckeyes on their home floor. This
contest should be a very close battle
with both teams evenly matched. On
last Monday night Wisconsin dealt
Iowa their first defeat of the season.
The Iowa team has come off the floor
victorious twice in games with Ohio
State and Illinois. On the same eve-
ning Ohio State accounted for the
upset of that day by downing Illinois
in a closely contested flight by the
score 18 to 13. Ohio State has de-
veloped a stalwart defense in which
Raudebaugh and Dye form the foun-
dation. An added advantage in
State's favor is their high-scoring
forward, Whitlinger, who tops the
Big Ten basket ringers.
Oppose Illinois
Likewise, Northwestern opposes
Illinois at Champaign. Both these
teams have a .500 average, Illinois
has won two games and lost two,
while the Purple team has split their
two games. The Wildcats displayed
a very aggressive game against Min-
nesota's befuddled defense to subdue
the Gophers last Monday.
This Saturday the Chicago team
will face the Wolverine quintet in
Yost Field House. Chicago has an
improved attack featuring Bill Haar-
low who accounted for 17 points
against Indiana. The Chicago offen-
sive clicked and the first place In-
diana team was only able to eke out
a 33 to 30 victory.
Brooklyn Dodgers Signs
Big Freddy Lindstrom
BROOKLYN, Jan. 16.--() -
Freddy Lindstrom, former baseball
star of the Giants and Cubs re-
leased recently by Chicago, today
accepted terms to play with the
Brooklyn Dodgers. Manager Casey
Stengel expects to use him in
center field.
Lindstrom, wintering in Miami,
completed negotiations by wire
with Stengel, who is at his home
in Glendale, Calif. Then Freddy
notified the Brooklyn office that
he had accepted.
It is understood Lindstrom re-
ceived a substantial bonus for
signing because the White Sox,
Athletics, Braves and Red Sox
were reported seeking him.

Will He CLIMB Out Of The Ring Tonight?

Discuss Radical
Innovations In
Football Rules
NEW YORK, Jan. 16. - (P) - De-
tailed proposals for changes in the
football rules, including abolishment
of the point after touchdown, substi-
tution of a scoring system allowing
one point for each first down and an
over-time period to break ties, were
put forward today on behalf of the
Eastern Association of Football Offi-
The suggestions, embracing wide
range and the carefully considered
views of gridiron arbiters, have been
forwarded to Walter R. Okeson, of
Lehigh, chairman of the National
Collegiate Rules Committee, by Wil-
liam R. Crowley, of New York, who
has served as president of the As-
sociation for the past three years.
Listing a dozen proposals, mainly of
a clarifying or technical nature,
Crowley also urged the return of
the goal posts to the goal line and
recommended a system whereby

Charlie Retzlaff, confidently climbs through the ropes after his last
stiff drill in preparation for his fight with Joe Louis in Chicago tonight.
The bout, scheduled to go 15 rounds or less, has aroused little interest
as a competitive match, but speculations as to what round the Brown
Bomber will finish Retzlaff in have caused considerable controversy
among members of the sporting fraternity.
Retzlaff, knocked out by Levinsky who fell before Louis' onslaughts
in the first round of his bout with the Detroit Negro, seems unconcerned
about tonight's fight, but will he feel the same way just before the bell?

Records May
Be Shattered
In Time 'Trials
With two weeks of practice be-
hind them since the Christmas holi-
day vacation, Coach Hoyt's track
squad will be put through strenuous
time trials Saturday afternoon in
Yost Field House.
Hoyt's defending Western Con-
ference champions are rounding into
form and tomorrow's performances
will probably be the best of the first
semester. Events to be run off include
the 60-yard dash, 440, 880, mile, two
mile, and the low and high hurdles.
The first meet of the season will
be held here February 21 when the
Spartans of Michigan State invade
the Field House. The Wolverines will
continue drilling until examinations
and with this meet coming in the
first week of the second semester will
probably work out during the exam
period also.
Time trials were also held last
week but due to the fact that the
men had only drilled a few times
since vacation they did not endeavor
to turn in fast times. In the trials
before vacation several creditable
performances were turned in, espe-
cially in the distance events, and these
marks will be shot at tomorrow.
Like new, size 38-40; dark
northern, well-matched skins;
original cost new $500; a real
bargain at $100.00. P. J. Cooley,
320 West Fort Street, Detroit.
