score. In the first haif Michigan
took three longs and hit one, 19
shorts and made 10 while Purdue hit
two out of nine longs and one out
of 14 shorts. In the second period
the Varsity missed fire on all of its
six long shots and hit but five out of
21 shorts. Purdue, on the other hand
made two out of 13 longs and 11 out
of 19 short. The Wolverines made
half of their 10 free throws, the
Boilermakers 10 out of 15.
Taimagno Starts It
Tamagno openec the scoring with
a long shot after 17 seconds of play.I
Baskets by Gee and Rudness and free
throws by Earl Townsend pushed
Michigan's score up to 11 points while
Red Lambert made Purdue's only
point on a foul. After nine minutes
Kessler made the first Boilermaker
field goal. Controlling the ball and
working perfectly off the backboard
the Wolverines ran their score up to
25 while three field goals and six
consecutive free throws gave Purdue
12 points at the end of the half.
Varsity Sweeps On
The game continued from where it
left off until with 12 minutes to go
Michigan was leading 30 to 15.dA pass
from Young to Malaska made it 30
to 17. Young hit twice from the edge
of the foul circle and made good on
a free throw while Earl Townsend
(made a follow-in shot. Then Kessler
started his left-handed pivot shots;
Lambert hit a push-in; Malaska
dropped in two in a row, one short
and one from out on the floor. Kess-
ler made another under: the basket
and Tamagno was forced out of the
game when he fouled the Purdue
ace. Kessler missed his foul but the
basket tied up the score at 32 all.
Fishman broke the deadlock with a
foul shot and made a long basket to
put Michigan ahead 35 to 32. Kessler
came back with a basket on an out-
side play and another going under.
Trying to go under again he was
fouled shooting by Earl Townsend
and hit both free throws putting Pur-
due ahead 38 to 35. John Townsend
made a follow-in on a shot by Rud-
ness to close the scoring.

Zehr Is Back; Beware,
Big Ten Back-Strokers
Danny Zehr has served notice
to the Big Ten back-strokers.
The Northwestern sophomore
who was a member of the United
States Olympic swimming team in
1932 has finally de ided that as a
free-styler he is still a good back-
stoker. Friday night at Evanston
in a meet with Minnesota, he
turned over on his back and did
1:34.6 foi the 150-yard event.
This time, made in a 20-yard
pool, is two full seconds better
than the new National Intercol-
legiate standard for the short
course made by Dick Westerfield
of Iowa two weeks ago and bet-
ters Adolph Kiefer's unofficial
world record of 1:35.6, this made
over a 25-yard course.

Heavies To Mix It
In Yearling Bouts'
The freshman pugilists, each hav-
ing hopes of annexing the title of his
respective class, are prepared for the
bouts which will be staged next Wed-
nesday afternoon, March 11, at 4 p.m.
in the boxing room of Waterman
The yearling boxes have been work-
ing out daily in an attempt to reach
top physical condition for their bouts.
As a result there have been numerous
minor injuries, but these have had no
effect on the determination of the
individuals concerned.
Coach Verne Larson has promoted
a heavyweight bout between Jack
Peters and Don Siegel, two freshman
football players, in an attempt to
make his card more interesting. The
match will feature the card, and it
promises to be an excellent one, al-
though Siegel will have an advantage
in weight of nearly fifteen pounds.
Coach Larson stated yesterday that
although the boys are large in size,
they are well coordinated and will
provide a fast contest. Siegel will
enter the ring weighing approximate-
ly 215 pounds, and Peters will weigh
about 200 pounds.
Bob Carter, Northwestern sopho-
more and all-around track man, has
been a consistent winner in all Wild-
cat meets this season. In the dual
meet with Notre Dame at South Bend
recently he set a new meet record of
:07.8 for the 60 yard high hurdle
The St. Louis Browns traveled 15,-
008 miles last year, including the
training trip, and will travel 18,706
miles this year because the schedule
provides four eastern trips instead of
the customary three.

Claims Senators
Bat .300 This Yearj

Yearling Court Squad Boasts
Regular Victories Over Varsity

ORLANDO, Fla., March 7. - F) --
Manager Bucky Harris is so enthused
over the offensive promise of his
Washington baseball club he is pre-
dieting the Senators will bat .300 this
Bolton, Myer, Travis and Powell. he
says, are sure to be over .300 and he
figures the others will be close enough
to that figure to pull the regulars'
average over it.
Henry Coppola, young pitcher, de-
veloped the first sore arm of the
training camp. He was tagged as a
great prospect last year until his arri
became sore and now it appears the
trouble still is dogging him.

Varsity Teams
Swimmers And Trackmen
Defend Championships;
Matmen Seek Honors
Three Western Conference cham-
pionship meets will constitute the
program for Michigan athletic teams
during the coming week.
The Wolverine track team will de-
fend its Big Ten indoor title at Chi-
cago Friday and Saturday, Coach
Matt Mann's powerful swimming
team will be after its sixth consecu-
tive Conference crown at the same
time at Minneapolis, and the Varsity
wrestling squad moves to Iowa City
for the week end in search of Big
Ten individual titles.
Iowa, which recently dropped a
34-41 decision to the Varsity in the
Intramural pool, is expected to battle
it out with Coach Mann's team for
the swimming title. The Wolverines
are slight favorites and should come
out on top.
Jack Kasley in the breast-stroke
and the Michigan medley-relay team
are defending champions.
Indiana and Wisconsin are the
teams expected to give Coach Chuck
Hoyt's trackmen their strongest op-
position, with the outcome virtually a
Clayt Brelsford in the mile run, Bob
Osgood in the high hurdles and the
Michigan mile-relay team will be
defending track titles gained in the
annual meet last winter.
Four of Coach Keen's men stand
chances of winning mat crowns. The
favored ones are John Speicher at
118 pounds, Paul Cameron at 126,
Earl Thomas at 135,, and Harry
(Tiny) Wright in the heavyweight
Alfred Gwynne. Vanderbilt has
nominated 21 for the New England
Futurity to be run at Narragansett1
next fall.

For the last three weeks Coach Ray S
Fisher's freshman basketball team n
has been giving Cappon's Varsity five o
daily drubbings, Of course, Town-
send and company have been doing t
pretty well despite the trouble that
the yearlings have given them; per-
haps they can be accused of letting
up in practice. Still the freshmen have
beaten them regularily and this does
imply something.
While the freshmen can't match
the 1935 frosh squad in individual
stars, they have developed their team
play to a point not usually reached by
first year squads.
Smick Outstanding
Danny Smick, six-foot two inch
center, has proved to be the class of
the squad. Playing an aggressive
type of ball on both offense and de-
fense, Smick has held John Town-
send to a bare minimum all year and
has done more than his share of work
on the back-board play. He should
fit in well with the Varsity next year,
making up for the loss of Earl Town-
send and his valuable height under
the basket.
Dick Long and Sam Henderson,
guards, Lou Levine of Muskegon and
Walt Peckinpugh, Jr., of Cleveland,
forwards, complete the first team.
Accurate Shot
Long is one of the most accurate
long shots that has played for Michi-
gan in Yost Field House for some
years. In addition his defensive play
and work under the defensive basket
should make him a valuable man to
Cappon next year.
Both Levine and Peckinpaugh have

Kasley And Kirar Drilling Hard
For Positions On Olympic Team

July and the trials for the Ameri-
can Olympic swimming team are
quite some distance into the future,
but Coach Matt Mann already has
two Michigan swimmers well installed
on campaigns that he believes will
end in the final heats of the Eleventh
Olympiad in the swimming stadium
on the Reich Sport Field in Berlin
next August.
Jack Kasley, junior on the Wolver-
ine Varsity, and Ed Kirar, sprint star
from Wisconsin on Coach Mann's
first-year squad, are pointing for the
200-meter breast-stroke and the 100-
meter free-style races in Germany
and are working daily with that end
in view.
In the meantime, Kasley can car-
ry on the defense of his Big Ten and
National Collegiate titles without
much worry, while Kirar, of course,
is not bothered by any intervening
Kirar Full Of Speed
Kirar, who finished second in the
50-yard free-style in last year's Con-
ference championships as a Badger
sophomore, has worlds of speed - he
has broken National Intercollegiate
records in practice - and is getting
faster as the weeks go by.
The huge blond sprinter came to
Ann Arbor primarily as a short-dis-
tance man, however, and while he
has become one of the fastest 100-
yard dashmen in the country, he stillI
could use more endurance; and it is
here that Coach Mann is putting on
the pressure.

In preparation for the two gruelling
50-meter laps that constitute the
event Kirar is working for, Coach
Mann has issued orders for innum-
erable 220-yard practice swims.
And Kirar goes through the 25-yard
Intramural pool for one seige of eight
and four-fifths laps after another-
and Coach Mann says: "When he
gets through doing this next June,
those two 50-meter laps will be
nothing at all."
Kasley Has Many Records
Kasley is faced with somewhat the
same problem. Big Ten, National In-
tercollegiate, and American (20-yard
course) record-holder for 200 yards,
and unofficial (as yet) world record-
holder for 50-yards, 100-yards, and
100-meters, the husky breast-stroke
performer has yet to quite hit real
record-breaking time for the 220-
yard and 200-meter .events-the lat-
ter being the Olympic race.
So Kasley, too, is working toward
that stage when 200-meters of the ex-
hausting "butterfly" stroke in a 50-
meter pool will not be too much to
ask - and this in world-record time.
Coach Mann has Kasley tie him-
self to the end of the pool by means
of a rope and a broad canvas belt
around his waist, and the Michigan
ace "flys" for five minutes. And be-
lieve it or not, he sprints for a full
half-minute at the end.
There is not much doubt that these
intensive campaigns will bear fruit;
the results should be well worth
watching next summer.
