Have Bi Entry
In A.A.U. Meet
Relay Carnival Will Act
As Proving Ground For
Team, Coach Intimates
Stating that he intends to enter
as many men as is possible in the
third annual Michigan A.A.U. relay
carnival, Tuesday, Feb. 18, Coach
Charlie Hoyt yesterday intimated that
fgr the Wolverines, Western Confer-
ence champions, the meet will ac
Mainly as a proving ground.
Three nights later Michigan wil
be host to the Michigan State team
and the performances in the A. A. U
meet are apt to go far in determining
what men face the Spartans. Also
the A.A.U. carnival will furnish th
Wolverines with enough good compe-
tition so that fans can form a good
idea of how the 1936 Michigan team
will act under fire.
Nine Events Open,
Six track and three field event
wil be open to members of the Mich-
igan team and to representatives o
other colleges in the state. The 65
yard dash, 65-yard high and low
hurdles, 880-yard run, mile .and relay
will -feature Wolverine entries.
Hoyt will also enter men in the
pole vault, shot put and high jump
The same list of events will be open
to high schools who will compet
only against others of the same rat
Seven Mile Relays
Featuring the meet will be the seven
one-mile relay races for high schools
colleges, clubs and universities. Th
concluding race on the card, th
University relay, will be between mil
relay teams of the Universities o
Michigan and Pittsburgh. Last yea
the two teams met once and tha
was at the Butler Relays which Mich
igan won.
Coach Hoyt said yesterday that h
would probably conduct time trials fo
1i quarter milers during the second
week of examinations in an effort t
determine his four best men. Thes
will be pitted against the Panthers.

Wrestling Is Good
Conditioner, Agree
Varsity Gridders
Apparently various Michigan grid -
ders agree with Coach Don McCallis-
ter of North Carolina University that
wrestling is fine training for football
linemen because many of them have
been drilling with Varsity matmen.
In addition to Harry "Tiny" Wright
and Frank Bissell, who are star grap-
plers as well as good football players,
James "Farmer" Lincoln, tackle, Er-
nie Pederson, guard, Jim Musik, end,
- and Stan Schumann, center, all have
t in their spare moments worked out
with the wrestlers.
1 Among the past gridmen who con-
sidered wrestling as a good condition-
ing sport were the names of George
Rich, captain of the 1930 Wolverine
eleven, Al Steinke, rugged guard,
e Howard Auer, stellar tackle, and Ray
- Parker, guard. The latter three men
were Varsity grapplers. Parker was
n a former Big Ten champion while
Steinke was one of the first Michigan
wrestlers to join the professional
s ranks.
- Coach Keen, Varsity mat coach, ex-
f plains: "It helps a football player to
- develop a fine sense of coordination
v in addition to improving his footwork.
Y It also teaches him to use his hands
and toughens him up due to the
e similar physical contact encountered
. in wrestling."

Bees As Result Of Poll
BOSTON. Jan. 30.-- UP) - The
n, National League baseball club of

e came the "Bees" today and here-
e after their home grounds, former-
f ly the Wigwam, will be known as

t A jury of 25 newspapermen se-
lected from 1,327 names suggested

'The HOT




Detroit Shortstop Acquires New
Hobby, Training Amateur Boxers

THAT LITTLE cementer ofo
good feeling whose editorial
heart is so free from petty jeal-a
ouzy, The Michigan State News,
absolves us ofall blame for any
part in the Notre Dame incident.r
"You can hardly blame the ed-
itrs of the Michigan Daily sportsr
page," it says, "they haven't any-s
thing else to write about."c
We won't deny it. For we haver
been hiding all week after thet
telling assertion of Michigan5
State's unquestioned superiority
quoted last w e e k, "T W O
LTHOUGH it means little to the
Middle West with Harvard andt
the East dominating the American'
team, it appears that for the firstt
time in the history of the Olympic
event that the United States may wint
the world's amateur hockey title in
that 6ompetition.
Not only does the American team
appear to be strong, but the Canadian
team, defending titleholders, has been
hard hit. The amateur championship
team of last year, customary repre-
sentatives, has been disbanded and
the players selected do not make as;
strong a playing combination as the
championship six would. In addition,
four of the players originally selected
were dropped before the Canadian
team went abroad because they asked
that they receive financial remunera-
tion for the time they would have
been away from work.
While some of the European
teams have been making great
strides with the help of Cana-
dian coaches, and while the game
is met with great enthusiasm
all over the continent, none of
them is expected to be strong
eneugh to eliminate either the
Canadian or American teams.
The case of the four Canadians
who were suspended for their de-
mands harks back to the days before
hockey was introduced as a legitimate
professional sport and the Stanley
Cup was still in the goal of the Do-
minion's amateurs.
In those days, and even much
later, as Eddie Lowrey recalls, am-
ateur hockey was real excitement.
Typical of that era is Eddie's story
of the teams which would go into
the province t engage some, local
The visitors would let the home
boys run up a lead in the first two
periods and then their schills would
circulate among the enthusiastic
home folk, collecting bets. In the
final period, of course, would come
a series of lucky goals and the boys
would go home, and in the bucks.
Much has been written about
how professionalization of the
amateur game has destroyed the
sport. But that it is the charge
against every sport which moves
over into the paid-money class.
Personally, we don't think the game
has changed at all for the worse, in
fact the demands of speed and more
speed made by the professional's
paying customers if anything made
the game better to watch. But the
players remain the same-in the
game for the love of the sport as
well as the money. Their fights
are not sham by a long ways, but
the natural overflow of energy which
the game creates, just as it is in any
amateur game, pick-up or organized
Bietila Is Injured About
Head In Practice Jump
Jan. 30.-IP)-Already conceded
small chance against their rivals
from the North countries, America's
Olympic skiers found themselves be-
set by an injury jinx today.
To a casualty list that already in-
cluded Edgar H. Hunter, Jr., of Dart-
mouth. and Holf Monsen, of Lake

Placid, N. Y., was added Walter I.
Bietila, of Ishpeming, Mich.
Bietila, a Sophomore at the Uni-
versity of Michigan and youngest
man on the ski squad, suffered head
injuries during a practice jump. He
will be laid up for a day or two but
should have fully recovered by the
time the Winter Games start, Feb. 6.

Yost Debunks
Post - Season
NEW ORLEANS, La., Jan. 30.-- (P)
- Fielding H. Yost, athletic director
of the University of Michigan, says he ,
thinks little of post-season games.
and in his opinion, "this talk about,1
football systems is the bunk."
Pausing here on a trip to Califor-I
nia, where he will attend a rules
meeting, the Michigan mentor said
he believed football had become as
standardized as baseball. "Every so-
called system is 95 per cent funda-
mentals," he said. "You must have
the proper blocking and tackling if
you are going to have a system.
"I don't care whether it is the
single wing back, the double wing
back, the Notre Dame system, the
Minnesota shift or whatever else you
want to call it, you have to have
the fundamentals and you have got
to have the proper cogs to fit into
the machinery if it is going to work."
Yost went back 32 years to select
the Michigan player he considers the'
greatest he ever coached. He named
Willie Heston, Michigan 1901-1904.
NEW YORK, Jan. 30.-(A')-Bar-
ey Ross, of Chicago, welterweight
champion, wants $40,000 to defend
his title against Tony Canzoneri, of
New York, lightweight champion.

The main task confronting Coach
Johnny Johnstone, Varsity tennis
mentor, if he wants a winning team
this year, seems to be the job of de-
veloping some individual player who
will be capable of holding his own in
any kind of company. If he can do
this, Michigan's prospects for a good
season will be very bright.
In two matches against the Detroit
Tennis Club squad this winter, the
Wolverines showed that their team
balance was excellent. They won
sevenwof twelve matches to win the
first meet between the two teams,
but the Detroit netters won the re-
turn battle, 5-2, when only five men
were used on the team.
Beat Detroit Once
When the squads met in Ann Ar-
bor, the Maize and Blue racquet
wielders won three of the last four
singles matches and two of the last
three doubles tilts to nose out their
more experienced opponents after the,
Detroit men had taken an early lead.
The only reversal of a decision in the
second match occurred when Capt.
Howard Kahn was beaten by Jerry
Hoxie, the Tennis Club's number-one
man. The difference in scores lies
in the fact that five fewer matches
were played thereby putting a pre-

mium on individual brilliance rather
than team balance.
Two Stand Out
Two men stand out as possibilities
to overcome this weakness that prom-
ises to keep Michigan from gaining
a high place in Conference competi-
tion, Jesse Flick, a transfer from
Texas who is playing his first year
on the squad, and Miller Sherwood, a
letter-winner last season.
Sherwood has the strokes to go
far in competition but lacks the ag-
gressiveness that will round out his
game and make it a winning one. He
is the finest stylist on the squad and
needs only to add a little more fire to
his game to become a leading star.
Flick looks good in practice, but until
he is seen under pressure little can
be determined as to his ultimate
value to the squad.
Captain Kahn is a fine player and
has an excellent record in Big Ten
competition, but his size, or rather
the lack of it, is too much of a handi-

cap for even such a game fighter as
Kahn to overcome. He will un-
doubtedly win far more matches
playing in the second or third posi-
tion. Jarvis Dean and John Rod-
riguez. both lettermen from last
eyar's squad, are consistent players.
One thing seems certain, how-
ever. Regardless of the success of
Coach Johnstone's search for an ace
player this season, next year will find
the Wolverines a much improved
team as the present freshman squad
is the best in the history of John-
stone's stay here at Michigan.

A Perm anent





Development Of An Outstanding Star
Is Main Task ConfrontingJohnstone



Bill Rogell, fighting fire chief of
the World Championship Detroit Tig-
ers arid one of the best shortstops in
baseball has become a stable owner,
but among his possessions are no
four-footed steeds capable of copping
the, Santa Anita or the Derby.
In fact Mr. Rogell owns no four
footed animal of any kind, simply be-
cause his stable is one of fighters
and not horses.
Rogell attended the opening Golden
Gloves show here Wednesday night,
principally he said, to watch one of
his fighters, Jack Pleice, who was
raking. his ring debut. Cheered en-
thusiastically by the crowd when he
was introduced, Rogell climbed into
the ring and shook hands with the
two fighters who were. about to com-
mence their bout.
Has Four In Stable
The fire chief has taken a real
interest in the fight game of late
and now trains- and takes care of
three amateurs and a professional.
Bill is particularly proud of Tony
Rupinski who beat Elmer Cousineau
of Ann Arbor here last December
while using only one hand, his other
having been fractured just before the
With the conversation suddenly
switched to baseball, Rogell said he
expected Al Simmons to have a great
year and to lead the Tigers in batting,
while the club as a whole would be
Rowe, Bridges and Auker will be the
leading pitchers, Rogell thinks, and
he looks for Crowder to give the
'tigers at least ten games. Asked
about the outstanding rookies who
will train with the Tigers at Lakeland
this spring Bill was noncomittal, but
added that with the exception of
Ludy York he knew too little about
their ability to pass judgment. York
he said had practically no chance to
break into the regular lineup and
would probably be shipped back to a
good minor league club.
Says Flea May Break In
Someone asked Bill if he thought
the Tiger infield would have a lucky
year, with which the little shortstop

became almost red as he snorted
"lucky!" "You have to take care of
yourself, and you have to be care-
ful, but you do have to get your share
of the breaks. I might go out and
break my leg the first week of prac-
tice and the whole team might be in
a train wreck, but as far as I know
we'll have the same infield as last
year, although the Flea may break,
in at third."
Rogell favors the Giants over the
Cards in the National League flag
chase and gives the Cubs no better
than third. Asked about a world
series preference in case the Tigers
take their third straight American
League pennant, Rogell would much
prefer to get another whack at the
Bill Knows Fight Game
Bill, turning his attention to the
ring as his fighter, a stocky, powerful
boy, stepped under the lights,
shqwed a keen knowledge of the fight
game as he commented on his fight-
er's form and ability. After the bout
and the fire chief's man, Pleice had
decisively defeated his more experi-
enced rival, Art Downing of Ann Ar-
bor, Bill waxed enthusiastic and ex-
plained that in addition to Pleice and
Rupinski he also has in his stable
Johnny Johnson, a lightweight and
Perry Moyer, a middleweight.
Asked what he thought of the reno-
vated Boston Red Sox, Rogell said
they were bound to be tough, and as
an afterthought added, "they'll be the
team to beat, they certainly should be
stronger than the Yanks."
Bill smoothed back his silver tinged
hair and slowly made his way out of
the aisle when he was asked, "And
what about the Tigers Bill, will they
be tops again?"
Rogell stopped and thought a min-
ute and then replied: "Ask Cochrane,
that's his business - and his respon-
sibility," and vanished into the crowd.
PITTSBURGH, Jan. 30. -(P) -
Christy J. Flanagan, head football
coach and athletic director at Du-
quesne University, disclosed today he
has turned down a new contract.
