Pittsburgh's Relay Squad To Compete Here In A. A.U[.

1. Meet

Cunningham Is
Possible Entry
In Feature Ruin
Panthers To Bring Strong
Quartet; Seven One-Mile
Relay Events Scheduled"
That Michigan's mile relay team,
Western Conference champions, will
be furnished strong opposition in the
third annual state A.A.U. relay car-
nival Feb. 18 at Yost Field Housec
was assured yesterday when Lloyd W.
Olds, chairman of the meet, an-
nounced that negotiations to bring
the powerful University of Pittsburght
quartet here have been successfully1
Olds also stated that he has yet to
hear definitely from Glenn Cunning-
ham, national mile run champion
and world's record holder, on the
latter's appearance here but that
he will contact Cunningham in New
York this week and make a definite
announcement before Monday. Olds
said that Cunningham has expressed1
a desire to run in a feature race at
the meet and considers it likely that
the Kansan will accept.
High Schools Enter
The first event of the meet will
start at 7:30 p.m. on the second day
of the second semester here. Olds has
received entries from numerous high
schools and colleges of the state for
the meet and indications are that
the card of events, especially if Cun-
ningham runs, will surpass those of
the first two years.
The Pittsburgh relay team has
established itself as one of the out-
standing teams of the east in recent
years and the announcement that the
Panthers will face the Wolverines as-
sures fans of one of the best indoor
races ever staged here. Last year
Pitt was nosed out by Michigan at
the Butler Relays in this event and
the Panthers are reported anxious to'
revenge that defeat.
Due to Pitt's prowess Coach Char-
ley Hoyt may find it necessary to drill
his quarter milers hard the week be-
fore the meet. This race is one of
seven one-mile relay events that
headline the program.
Titans To Run
In the state college relay Mich-
igan State, Western State, and Ypsi-
lanti will be represented. Wayne
University, Bowling Green and prob-
ably the University of Detroit will
compete against each other in an-
other relay while in the race for
clubs the Detroit Police, Great Lakes
and Detroit Track clubs will face each
A special relay for MIAA teams
will also be held and Olds stated yes-
terday that Albion, Kalamazoo and
Hillsdale colleges would definitely be
entered. There will also be two
high school relays. In the first sec-
tion Grand Rapids Central, Kalama-
zoo Central and Flint Central will
run while in the second Ann Arbor,
Jackson and one of the Lansing
schools will compete.
Word has also been received from
Ray Lowry, former Ypsilanti star and
one of the nation's best pole vault-
ers, that he will defend the pole
vaulting title he won in the first two
meets. Dave Hunn, Michigan star,
Will also be entered in the event.
Clark Haskins, of the Detroit Police
Department, will defend his 56 lb.
weight crown and as he rates as the
Mid-West's best man in the event,
his defense is expected to be suc-

SEVERAL persons have suggested to
us (as the quasi-schedule making
body of the University?) that there
is a definite need for a revision of the
Conference basketball schedule. Two
suggestions dominate, in their own
way solutions of two problems, the in-
equality of the present twelve-game
schedule which consists for each team
of a home-and-home series with six
other schools, and the fact that under
the present schedule it is next to im-
possible to finish the season with an
undispuated champion.
To eliminate the mnequality which
finds one school's schedule composed
of six set-ups, as far as there are
such in any Conference competition,
while another may have 12 games
with six leaders, the suggestion is
made that a round-robin schedule of
nine games be drawn, with each team
meeting each other team once.
The other suggestion incor-
porates that idea, for a round-
rcln schedule, but adds a sug-
gestion for determining a cham-
pion. Should the nine-game
schedule end in a tie for first
place between two teams, those
two would play a three-game
series which would give a winner
and also a runner-up. Should
three teams tie for first, they
would play a post-schedule
round-robin series with each
team meeting each other once, to
determine the champions.
Personally, we favor the round-
robin series which gives the best over-
all test of every team as they meet
all the competition in the Confer-
ence. That is the feature which both
suggestions include.
But the nine-game schedule does
not appeal to us as it is too short.
At the same time, the post-schedule
playoff does not strike us as par-
ticularly attractive despite the virtue
of attaining an undisputed title. It
is not sufficiently definite for the pre-
ciseness which the Conference sched-
ule-makers demand.
For our own part, we would like
to see a sort of combination of the
round-robin and home-and-home
schedules which would give not
only a fair test of each team as
it meets all others, but a complete
schedule of twelve games by the
addition of three home-and-
home series in the same rotation
with which the present schedules
are formed.
Vic Heyliger was the victim of one
of Coach Eddie Lowrey's latest pranks
on the hockey team's return to Ann
Arbor from its Michigan College of
Mines encounters.
Vic retired to his pullman berth,
according to custom, long before the
rest of the squad, at 7:30. Eddie
and others on the squad were not
ready to turn out the lights until
nearly midnight.
Just as they were retiring Ed-
die conceived the idea of waken-
ing Vic, telling him the train was
but five minutes out of the Chi-
cago station. Vic, awakened,
saw the rest of the squad in var-
ious stages of undress and rushed
into his clothes before he dis-
covered that the train was still
rolling through prairie land.
Speaking of train trips recalls Matt
Mann's all-American swimmer a few
years ago, who was having his first
train ride with the Varsity team.
Mann's star had just one dollar, and

Coach Franklin Cappon explained
the Michigan basketball team's
catastrophe at Minneapolis last Sat-
urday night in one pointed phrase,
"We were lousy."
Running into the same close guard-
ing that caused them so much trouble
against Indiana and Purdue and
playing an all around sloppy game,
the Wolverines, after leading until
the closing minutes, dropped the re-
turn game to Minnesota, 31 to 26,
and at the same time were counted
out of the Conference race.
The Varsity, stopped in the back
court, was unable to use its blocking
plays once and had to depend on
long shots and push-ins for most of
its scoring.
Cappon expected the Gophers to
check the Michigan guards closely in'
the back court just as they had in
the first game, which the Wolverines
won, 38 to 28, and he drilled the
squad on bringing the ball down the
floor in the week before the game,
but all of the practice seemed to be
for nothing.
Gophers Held Ball
The Gophers trailed until the last
few minutes when they put on a
spurt to overtake the Varsity and
then, once in the lead, stalled break-
ing around their guards for points
when the Wolverines tried to close
in and get control of the ball.
Jake Townsend, who led the scor-
ing with 11 points, left the game with
four personals with about eight min-
utes remaining and his absence was
a serious blow to Michigan's chances.
The most important trouble, how-
ever, was that the Michigan team was
just "lousy." The passing was bad
and the machine seemed rusty.
Clicked At Chicago
Chicago was a different story. The
Varsity looked like another team
against Bill Haarlow and his assist-
ants, running up 45 points while the
Maroons picked up 22. Chelso Ta-
magno and Earl Meyers held Haar-
low to 10 points, six of which were
on free throws, while the rest of the
Michigan team was allowing Chicago
but one field goal.
The Maroon five hit 16 free throws
out of 19 attempts for what is prob-
ably the best free throw average in
Conference competition for the sea-
Jake Townsend and Michigan's su-
perior height were the main factors
in the Wolverine's fourth Big Ten
win. The younger Townsend brother
threw passes in every direction, feed-
ing to his brother Earl, who col-
lected 12 points, George Rudness, who
hit for 11, and Tamagno, who made
five field goals.
Bill Lang, Chicago's long shot ar-
tist who teams with Haarlow at the
forward positions, was injured after
10 minutes of play and may be, out
for the remainder of the season. Lang
is a senior.
for safe keeping he had put it in his
shoe. On retiring, seeing the rest of
the squad leaving their shoes outside
their berths and he had no qualms in
doing the same. So it was that when
he woke the next morning he had a
beautiful shoe shine, but the porter
had his buck.

The Longhorn natators, champions
of the Southwest Conference, are
coming North next month for meets{
with Michigan, Northwestren and
probably Indiana, Michigan State
and Washington University of St.
Robertson, who is completing his
physical education course at the
Southern institution, is serving as'
coach without salary, to remain eli-
gible for the Olympics. He left Mich-
igan last June after starring for two
years due to a Big Ten ruling that
made him ineligible for further com-
petition because of a year's partici-
pation as a member of the freshman
team at Los Angeles Junior College
in 1931-32.
Last year, though handicapped by
a lingering illness, Robertson won the
220 and 440-yard free-style events in
the Big Ten championships, the lat-
ter in record time, was a member of
the Wolverine sprint relay team that
won the National Collegiate title, and
placed in thethree distance events in
the latter meet.
He was placed in the third spot
among the 220 men on the All-Ameri-
can collegiate team after finishing
in that place in the furlong race in
the National A.A.U. Outdoor cham-
pionships at Detroit.
Robertson, who is a native Texan,
has been in the coaching gameunof-
ficially for some time. Last year he
developed a fine team at University
High, including Juliard Carr, State
Interscholastic champion at 100 yard.
His greatest accomplishment was
the development of 18-year-old Adolf
Kiefer, holder of practically every
existing record in the back-stroke.
"We will be facing the best compe-
tition in the country" commented
Coach Robertson in the "Daily Tex-
an," recently, and although we may
not win any meets, the experience
will be invaluable. And we do have
quite a few men who will cause plenty
of trouble in the North."

Tommy Morris, flyweight, feather-
weight and bantamweight titleholders
respectively, are entered and have
their eyes fixed on the Chicago meet
as their ultimate goal. Winners here
will compete at Grand Rapids in the
state meet and state champions will
be entered in the finals of the Chicago
Tribune tourney.
If past opening nights are anything
to go by fans tonight will see a series
of wild punching bouts, any one of
which is apt to end in a knockout.
Peter Urso, 1934 bantamweight cham-
pion, has again entered and ring fans
here and in Detroit have learned that
Patsy possesses a pair of hard punch-
ing fists as he was on the Chicago
Golden Gloves team two years ago.
Bouts will be held in both the open
and novice divisions but there will be
fights in only six classes as no heavy-
weight or light heavyweight fighters
entered the meet.

Scientific research has exploded and outmoded many ideas about eyes and
seeing, which are so important in our daily lives. For example:
The Idea That Every Pair of Eyes
Requires the Some Amount of Light.

G. R. SWAIN about it.
Phone 2-1924 713 E. Univ.

S _-i
ti., .

The fact is that school boys and girls, and old people,
need more light than average grown-ups. A small
child's eyes are not fully developed until he is seven
years of age or older. When he is learning to read,
he must look at each letter or word, whereas a grown-
up reads whole phrases or sentences at a glance. Older
people need more light because the pupil of the eye
has become smaller with age; because their sight has
been dulled by use and abuse; and because parts of
the eye have lost some of their strength and flexibility.

The Idea That One Bright Light on Your Book
Is All You Need For Comfortable Reading.




Many a headache is caused by this improper way of lighting. The fact is that eyes are most
comfortable in diffused light, without violent contrasts. When you read or work under
a bright light, with semi-darkness all around you, your eye is not only bothered with glare
from the working or reading surfaces, but must repeatedly adjust itself to light and dark-
ness. When you have enough light on your work, a good part of it should come from
the general surroundings.

The Idea That You Can Read Safely
In Almost Any Light, With Proper Glasses.

It has been proved that nervous tension increases as the brightness of light decreases, even
if your eyes are doing nothing more difficult than reading a well-printed book. Proper
lighting means less effort in seeing -less strain on
eyes, nerves and body. It is just as necessary as proper
glasses. Light and glasses are good friends. Eyes should
be examined every year.
