Cagers Battle
State, Indiana
After Exams
Go To East Lansing Feb.
15 To Meet Spartans;
Seek Revenge
Michigan's basketball team will end
its 21-day final exam lay-off February
15th when the Wolverine cagers travel
to East Lansing to meet Michigan
State in the return tilt of the tradi-
tional two-game series and then re-
enter Big Ten competition against
the league-leading Indiana five at
Bloomington, Ind.
The Varsity defeated the Spartans
in the first encounter by a 35-24
score. Since that loss the Michigan
State team has not turned in an im-
pressive record but has shown
strength consistently.
Maurice Buysee, blind shot expert
who scored five field goals against
Michigan in the first game, may be
on the bench with a torn shoulder
and a strained hip which he received
at Philadelphia against Temple and
which have been causing him trouble
since the Eastern tour.
The only other change in the Spar-
tan lineup will find Joe Smith in
Dannyc Reck's guard position.tDespite
the fact that he does not rate with
Reck as a guard Coach Van Alstyne
believes that Smith's scoring ability
will make up for the difference.
Indiana, undefeated in Conference
competition, handed Michigan its
first defeat of the year in the open-
ing game of the Big Ten season, out-
scoring the Varsity 33 to 27. Since
then the Hoosiers have won every
Conference start.
The Indiana game looms as one of
the most imgortant Big Ten games
of the season for only the Michigan
team seems to stand between the
Bloomington five and at least a share
of the title.
Big Ten Tank
Meets -Feature
Swimming Trip
Michigan's Varsity swimming team
will show its championship wares in
four Indiana cities before classes re-
sume, meeting two Conference oppo-
nents, Indiana and Purdue, and tak-
ing part in two exhibitions.
Coach Matt Mann and a complete
squad will leave Ann Arbor by auto-
mobile early in the morning of Thurs-
day, Feb. 13 and stop that night in
South Bend for an exhibition at the
South Bend Athletic Club.
The following day the Wolverines
will move to Lafayette for a dual meet
Friday night with unfamiliar Con-
ference opponents in the persons of
Purdue's swimmers. The Boilermak-
ers have never been a factor in the
Big Ten, and Coach Mann is expected
to have very little difficulty despite
reports of veteran opposition.
Saturday afternoon will find the
Michigan performers at Bloomington
for a return meet with Indiana. The
Hoosiers were swamped 55 to 19 in the
Intramural pool last month and
should not be able to do much better
in their home pool.
The same evening the National
Champions will travel the 60 odd
miles to Indianapolis for an exhibi-
tion at the Indianapolis Athletic Club.
The Wolverines will take part in sev-
eral special events and meet the I.A.C.

natators at water polo.
Fred Cody and Harry Riecke, back-
stroke artist, and diver Ben Grady
will go into action for the first time
this season during next weejk's trip.

Gil Dobie Resigns As
Cornell Football Coach
ITHACA, N. Y., Feb. 1.-0P)-
Gil Dobie, head football coach at
Cornell university, resignedtoday.
In a letter to James Lynah, Cor-
nell's athletic director, Dobie, head
coach at Ithaca since 1920, an-
nounced his resignation "in the in-
terest of harmony."
Dobie has been subjected to
sharp criticism from alumni and
other groups for several years as
a result of Cornell's poor showing
on the gridiron. Forecasts that
Sooner or later he would be ousted
have been freely made during re-
cent weeks.
Dobie said his resignation would
be effective today on the assump-
tion that Cornell would make ar-
rangements for a successor within
the near future.
No hint was forthcoming as to
who might take over the job.
'M' Wrestlers
Seeky A Second
Win Over State
As a result of their 15%-10/2 vic-
tory over Michigan State on Jan. 27
at Yost Field House, Coach Keen's
Varsity grapplers will try to make it
two straight over the Spartans when
they journey to East Lansing on Feb.
15 for a return match.
If ineligibility does not keep Paul
Cameron and Lilburn Ochs from
competing during the rest-of the sea-
son, Coach Keen will probably have
a revised lineup ready for the tra-
ditional State rivals. The possible
lineup is as follows: 118-pounds,
John Speicher; 126-pounds, Earl
Thomas; 135-pounds, Paul Cameron;
145-pounds, Captain Wally Heaven-
rich; 155-pounds, Arnold Gross; 165-
pounds, Frank Bissell; 175-pounds,
Lilburn Ochs and heavyweight, Har-
ry "Tiny" Wright.
The Wolverines will attempt to
avenge last year's 18-12 defeat suf-
fered at the hands of the Spartans,
having already gained revenge for
the 20-14 loss.
SEATTLE, Feb. 1.- Jimmy Phe-
lan, football coach of the University
of Washington Huskies, today held a
contract renewed for one year, de-
spite his failure to bring a Pacific
Coast Conference title to the Seattle
School during his six-year regime.

Gib James To
Play Left Wing
Coach Lowrey Plans To
Resume Serious Drills
After Next Week
With the greater part of the
hockey team engaged in the throes
of honor point battles, the Varsity
squad will hold no intensive drills
until after next week when Eddie
Lowrey will once again resume serious
practice in preparation for the Pt.
Edward of Carnia game the Saturday
night following the Junior Stomp.
Unless eligibility's grim hand in-
terferes. the team which will face the
powerful Pt. Edward sextet on Feb-
ruary 15 will find Vic Heyliger, Wol-
verine scoring ace at center with
Johnny Fabello on right wing and Gib
James, Ottawa sophomore, at Johnny
Sherf's old left flank position.
Big Bert Smith will team with Cap-
tain Larry David on the defense and
either Irving Shalek or Reed Low
will be in the nets.
Whether or not Dick Berryman
will return to school next semester
was still problematical last night, and
in the event that he does not, Lowrey
will have to depend upon Jack Mer-
rill and Dick Griggs to shoulder the
relief burden for his first line and
abandon hope of being able to alter-
nate two complete forward walls.
The Pt. Edward team is one of
the strongest in Western Ontario,
comparing very favorably with the
Chatham Maroons with whom they
are in the same league. Upon their
last invasion here the Pt. Edward
pucksters descended upon the Coli-
seum with the Sarnia brass band and
proceeded to blast the eardrums out
of the capacity crowd which attended
the game.

Freshman Puts Five
American Records
In Books In 1935
The University of Washington has
its Jack Medica and Roosevelt High
of Chicago has Adolf Kiefer, but
Michigan's freshman swimming team
has Tom Haynie.
The slight Detroit yearling who has
been raising havoc with Coach Matt
Mann's Varsity champions this winter
rivalled the above mentioned stars
of the swimming world last year when
he put five American records in the
books, two of them as a member
of a relay team, however.
Haynie established new national
marks in the 300-meter and 150-yard
individual medley swims, the 250-
yard free-style event, and aided in the
creation of new standards for the
800-meter and 880-yard free-style re-
lays, the recently published Spaulding
Athletic Almanac for 1936 reveals.
The 300-meter record of 4:6.7 was
made at Detroit on June 13 over a
50-meter course and erased the old
mark of 4:15.8 held by Leslie Olds
of California. Haynie apparently had
a grudge against Olds, because the
250-yard mark he annexed at De-
troit over a 20-yard course was also
formerly held by the Californian at
2:40.4. Tom's time was 2:37.
The former Detroit Northwestern
and Massanutten Academy star went
after Walter of the Spence brothers
last April in setting up the new rec-
ord for the 150-yard individual med-
ley in a 25-yard pool,
Teaming with Tex Robertson, Jim-
my Gilhula and Sandy Sinkiewicz in
the National A.A.U. Outdoor cham-
pionships at Detroit last July, Haynie
helped establish American records
for the 800-meter and half-mile relay
events over the long course with a
total time of 9:21.6 for both distances.
