Yard Free-Style Race By
Chuck Flachmann
DETROIT, Jan. 18. - Jack Kasley,
Michigan's National Collegiate and
Big Ten breast-stroke champion and
record-holder, fared the best of seven
Wolverine swimmers of the past,
present and future who competed in
the Detroit Athletic Club's gala in-
vitational meet here tonight.
Kasley defeated Max Brydenthal
of the Lake Shore A. C. of Chicago
over the 100-yard distance, setting
a new American record of 1:03.9. This
mark, made under championship
conditions will undoubtedly be ac-
cepted by the Amateur Athletic
Union. The old mark of 1:04.5 was
made by Johnny Higgins of the 01-
neyville Boys' Club of Providence.
Not World Mark
A record at this distance is not ac-
cepted by the International Federa-
tion of Amateur Athletics as a world
mark, but swimmers everywhere re-
spect the American record as such.
Kasley was timed unofficially at
1:03.5 for the same distance in Coach
Matt Mann's huge swimming gala
last month in the Intramural pool
on his way to a world's record for
tW 100-meter distance.
Adolf Kiefer, 18-year-old Roose-
velt (Chicago) high school student,
broke his own world's record for the
1100-meter back-stroke with a time
of 1:04.8.
In setting this mark Kiefer de-
feated Taylor Drysdale, Michigan
co-captain last year and three-time
National Collegiate champion, Sandy
Sinkewicz, young D.A.C. star and for-
ner Massanutten (Va.) Academy stu-
dent, and Fred Cody, present back-
syroke star of the Wolverine Varsity.
Uaynie Wins 220
Tom Haynie, Michigan freshman
swimmer competing unattached,
again took the measure of Frank Bar-
nard, Varsity ace, over the 220-yard
distance. Haynie, who defeated Bar-
nard in the freshmen's victory over
tbe Varsity, covered the furlong in
:J14. This mark, five-tenths of a
second over Jack Medica's Natio;al
Collegiate and Intercollegiate record,
Ages not approach the 2:13.2 Haynie

ITjdiana meet.
The 10-yard free-style saw Charlie
Flachmann, former Big Ten and Na-
tional Collegiate champion, edge out
a victory over his closest rival in the
Conference 50-yard sprint last March.
Kirar, formerly of Wisconsin, is now
a member of Michigan's first-year
team, but was swimming unattached
tonight. Flachmann's time was :53.5,
seven-tenths of a second over his Na-
tional Collegiate performance at Bos-
ton last March.
Mark McCarty, Michigan sopho-
more, fell to Harry Curtis and Bill

abled it to score with the same ease
as the starting combination. Manny

for this team.

Gee and Jake Townsend opened the
scoring with free throws, but Haar-
low matched Michigan point-for-
point for the first 10 minutes. Then
the Varsity turned on the heat and
pulled away to a 15-to-8 lead before
Lang could come to Haarlow's aid
with the first of his long shots. Mich-
igan left the floor at the half, ahead
The second half was nothing but
a scoring spree for the Wolverines,
with Jake Townsend's pivot shots and
passes to Rudness leaving Chicago
far behind.
With but a few minutes to play
and the score 43 to 31, the reserves,
responding to the crowd's plea for
50 points, quickly made three bas-
kets and two fouls, while Haarlow
and his mates tried shot after shot
from far out on the floor in a vain
attempt to cut down Michigan's mar-
gin of victory.

Michigan Vs. Notre Dame, Chapter II
(Editor's Note: The following column was written by Fred De Lano.)
A WEEK AGO I presented to the readers of this column a discussion and
comparison of the respective athletic records of two great Mid-Western
universities, Michigan and Notre Dame, and endeavored to show that as
great as Michigan's record is - especially in football - that of Notre Dame's1
is its equal over the last two decades. Both rank at the top of the heap;
in athletics, neither willing to concede a point to the other. It is realized;
by all followers of sport that a renewal of relationships between these two
institutions is a much desired act, games between the schools on thei
gridiron in particular being 100% "naturals."
Difficulties between the schools are alleged to lie for the most part
between the respective athletic departments, with Michigan's own director
of athletics, Fielding H. Yost, said by many to be the factor preventing
teams of these schools from playing each other. Even if this is true, I
will in the following paragraphs show that there actually is no obstacle'
in the way for a renewal of relationships, that the alleged differences,
between the athletic administrations are largely fictitious and finally that
even the so-called "obstacle," Mr. Yost, is ready to call it quits.
Mr. Yost, the grand old man of Michigan football and one of the
greatest leaders the world of sport ever produced, stated Thursday
night when I asked him if he would have any objections to renewing
athletic relationships with Notre Dame if the latter's eligibility and
training rules did not differ from those in the Western Conference,
"No, I do. not think I would."
Mr. Yost also stated that as far as he knows Notre Dame's regulations
differ considerably from those governing the Western Conference teams.
He also added that he doesn't know exactly what their rules are and
that he has not checked them recently. With Mr. Yost's all-important
statements in mind, I would like to present to the sporting public in
general, and Mr. Yost in particular, the information that as crude as
Notre Dame's regulations might once have been, they now are nearly
identical with those of the Big Ten and certainly equal those of
non-Conference schools on Michigan's schedules.
I have in my possession a copy of Notre Dame intercollegiate athletic 1
rules, if Mr. Yost is interested, and have carefully checked them against)
Western Conference rules, a copy of which I also have. Mr. Yost is free
to do the same. It is said that Michigan's director objects to Notre Dame's
playing men on B teams without having it count as actual competition,
Let me quote from the Notre Dame code under section three, article 49:
"Any intercollegiate competition on a, B team counts as University compe-
tition." I believe I am correct in saying this was added only recently. As
for Notre Dame's freshmen engaging in competition with yearlings ofj
other schools, Mr. Yost no doubt realizes that Michigan State - a perennial
Wolverine foe - adheres to the same policy as the Irish.
It might be wondered how Notre Dame feels about Michigan and ,
the sitiatin as a whole. As a result I quote sections of a letter received
by myself Wednesday morning from Elmer Layden, director of ath-
letics and head football coach at Notre Dame:
January 14, 1936
Mr. Fred De Lano,
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Dear Mr. De Lano:
Notre Dame adheres to the Western Conference eligibility rules.
However, there are some slight differences as there are among the
members of the Conference.
I am happy to send you a copy of our eligibility code.
The attitude of Notre Dame towards Michigan is most friendly.
Yours Sincerely,
Director of Athletics.
Mr. Layden also states that he thinks the question of renewing rela-
tionships should remain between the athletic departments of the two schools.
Naturally it should, but I suggest that the departments give it their attention
and bring about a rivalry that thousands of football and athletic fans in
the United States have waited years to see develop.
If Mr. Yost would check over his own Big Ten rules he would
find under section eight, article A: "No Conference university shall compete
with any non-Conference institution in the Middle West * * * unless both
compete under Conference rules of eligibility." Thus, as all Big Ten schools
but Michigan, Chicago or Iowa have met Notre Dame on the gridiron recently
or are going to play them soon, Yst has definite proof that Notre Dame's
rules are what they should be.
Revaing again that Mr. Yost stated he would not object to
renewing relationships with Notre Dame if their rules did not differ
with Big Ten rules (and he had not checked them to see if they did
or not), what is there standing in the way of a Michigan-Notre Dame
series? Also recalling Coach Layden's statement that Notre Dame's
attitude towards Michigan is most friendly, the logical answer to that
question is nothing. And so, Directors Yost and Layden, why not give
the fans what they want (they're really paying your salaries, you
know) and arrange for the greatest rivalry in athletics?

Squad Intact
Despite Hard
Gopher Tilts
First Game With Aggies
Since Free For All Of
Several Years Ago
Michigan's gallant hockey team re-
turned to Ann Arbor late yesterday
afternoon, showing signs of fatigue
after their gruelling two game seriesi
with Minnesota at Minneapolis, but
ready nevertheless to take on On-
tario Agricultural College in the Col-
iseum tomorrow night.
Making one of the most startling
second game comebacks collegiate
hockey has ever seen, Michigan
changed from a team that had been
well shellacked by a 7-1 score on
Thursday night to a battling, scrap-
ping, never-say-die squad which car-
ried the play to Minnesota through-
out the entire second game Friday,
and was only beaten 1-0, with aid
of tough breaks.
Irving Shalek, after spending the
greater portion of the first contest
plucking pucks out of the netting be-
hind him, became a sensation in the
second tilt, kicking out flying rub-
ber from every angle as the Gopher
forward lines took turns bearing down
on him.
Coach Eddie Lowrey will stand firm
on the same lineup started against
the northmen when the whistle blows
for the opening face-off Monday
The Wolverines have not met On-
tario Aggies since Johnny Jewell, last
year's goalie, was a sophomore. The
last game played between the two
schools resulted in a spirited free for
all as Michigan romped through the
invaders for an easy win.
The Ontario game will be the last
appearance of the Wolverine sextet
on its home ice until February 15, the
schedule calling for no games during
the examination period.
Vic Heyliger will be at center for
the Wolverines flanked by Dick
Berryman and Johnny Fabello, while
Captain Larry David and Bert Smith
will start on the defense with Sha-
lek in goal.
The game will start at 8:30 p.m.,
immediately after the conclusion of
the Michigan-Iowa basketball game.

News Reel Camera To Focus On
Wolverine Ptikvters This Week

Making its second trip into the
North in as many weeks, the Michi-j
gan hockey team will journey to
practically the tip of the Upper Pen-
ninsula to engage Michigan Tech in
a two game series at Houghton this
The Michigan-Michigan Tech ser-
ies has become an annual event at
the mining school and an entire win-
ter sports carnival revolves about the
two games.
Dog races, snow-shoe races, speed
skating, and skiing will be included
on the two day program, with the
hockey games serving as the climax
to the day's sports.
Several of the local fraternities
have made arrangements with a na-
tional news reel concern, to shoot
scenes from the carnival and plan to
have them shown extensively
throughout the country.
Games Are Broadcast
The games are broadcast over a
local hook-up which serves most of
the upper penninsula, and those fans
who can not jam themselves into
the Houghton rink, listen to the play
by play account of the games while
toasting their puppies on their re-
spective hearths.
In direct contrast to the vast Arena
at Minneapolis where Michigan
played Minnesota last week, the ice
at Michigan Tech is decidedly small
and has a tendency to be rough.
Michigan will be spared the disad-
vantage of jumping from a football
stadium to a band box by playing on
their own ice against Ontario Ag-
gies Monday night, and thus regain-
ing something of their perspective.

Michigan series at Houghton and last

lowing of Calumet rooters, was the
object of considerable good natured
abuse by the rabid Houghton citizen-

were held to an even split by a hard
skating band of Huskies, both he and
Sherf1 made it very tough for the
Liilliant Ed Maki, Tech goal tender,
who is now holding down a job in
the Michigan-Ontario League.
The Michigan Alumni Club always
sees that the Wolverines are really
taken care of during their stay in
the North, and members of the team
look forward to the Tech trip as the
best of the year. The Alumni Club
is planning another banquet for the
team and rumors are that either Vic
Heyliger or Dick Berryman will be
asked to crown the queen of the Win-
ter Carnival.
Varsity Cagers Meet
Iowa Here Tomorrow
Michigan's basketball team will
make its final appearance at Yost
Field House until March 2 to-
morrow night when the Wolver-
ines take to floor against a strong
Iowa quintet. The second Illinois
game will mark the return of the
Iowa brings a strong team built
around two veteran stars, Capt.
Johnny Barko and Sid Rosen-
thal, and three capable sopho-
mores, Jack Drees, Joe Van Yssel-
dyk, and Ken Suesens. The reg-
ular five averages well over the
six-foot mark with Drees, Hawk-
eye center, topping the six-foot
five-inch mark. Iowa is tied with
the Wolverines and Illinois and
Wisconsin for fourth place with
two wins and two losses.
INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 18. - (A') -
Ellsworth Vines today was three up
on Lester Stoefen in their professional
tennis feud. Vines won his third
straight match in their present tour
last night, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. In another
match George Lott defeated Berkeley
Bell, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.

Record In Dual7
Forte Of Mich
Because for the past six years
Michigan has failed to produce any
outstanding individual players in
Conference net circles many are of
the opinion that the record of the
tennis squad has just been mediocre
at best. Yet the figures show that
the netters have won the Big Ten
dual meet title once and were run-
nersup twice in the last six seasons.
They have won 16 matches, lost 7
and tied 4 for an average of .696.
This mark compares favorably with
the records of any other Wolverine
In 1930 the netmen headed by
Capt. Ed Hammer won six straight
matches to capture the Big Ten
championship. The following year
found the team in second place, beat-
en only by the Ohio State champion-

Meets Shows
igan Net Teams
Michigan again came to the fore
in Conference net circles in 1934
when Capt. Clint Sandusky led them
to second place in the Big Ten stand-
ings. Last season the men under
Capt. Seymour Siegel beat Ohio State
but lost to Chicago and Northwestern
and were tied by Minnesota. How-
ever, in matches outside of the Con-
ference, the netters won ten consecu-
tive matches.
This latter record might lead ten-
nis followers to believe that Big Ten
schools placed strongerteams on.the
court than did our other opponents
and such might be the case, but there
is also another explanation that might
answer the problem in better fashion.
Against Conference foes only four-
man teams were used while six men
competed against non-Conference
teams. When teams such as Chicago
and Northwestern were met, the lack
