Swimmers And Wrestlers Leave For Big Ten


n--- - U

Natators Seek
Sixth Straight
Iowa Expected To Furnish
Stiffest Competition For
Wolverine Team
After Michigan's sixth consecutivec
Big Ten title, the ninth in ten years, s
14 Varsity swimmers and Coach Matt
Mann entrain at 5:17 p.m. today fort
the annual Conference championshipst
at Minneapolis.e
Headed by Capt. Frank Fehsenfeld,
the squad includes Ned Diefendorf,e
Der Johnston, Ben Grady, Harryt
Rieke, Jack Kasley,Ed Vandervelde,t
Frank Barnard, Bob Mowerson, Paul1
Keeler, Erwin McCarty, Ed Drew,1
Dick Blake and Manley Osgood.
The Wolverines are headed for
Minnesota confident that they can
repeat, but many observers, including
Neils Thorps, Gopher coach and man-
ager of the meet, have Coach Mann's
squad due for a beating at the hands
of Iowa.
Have Beaten Iowa
Michigan defeated the Hawkeyes
here two weeks ago by a slim two
points when, it is being reported, two
of Iowa's principal threats, back-
stroker Dick Westerfield and free-
styler Capt. Adolph Jacobsmeyer were
out of shape from illness and injury.
Michigan started winning Confer-
ence championships in 1927. the third
year of Coach Mann's reign, and has
swept on with one defeat, adminis-
tered by Northwestern in 1930 in the
Wildcats' pool at Evanston.
Kasley i the 200-yard breast-
stroke is the only Wolverine defending
an individual title this year. The
star junior should win easily from
Gus Horschke of Northwestern and
is expected to lower his own record of
2:30.3 by at least six seconds.
Medley Team Defending
Coach Mann's ace breast-stroker
- also is the only member of last year's
championship medlay-relay trio re-
turning. But with Rieke swimming
the 100 yards of back-stroke and
Mowerson doing the final free-style
leg, Michigan should repeat in the
300-yard event with last year's record
of 3:03.5 due for removal.
Barnard is the only Varsity per-
former who appears likely to win in
two events. Second and fifth be-
hind Michigan's Tex Robertson in
the 440 and 220-yard free-style events
last year, Barnard is due to move
into the championship spots this
Hoyt Picks 21
Men To Defend
Track Crown
Coach Chuck Hoyu, Varsity thin-
clad mentor, yesterday named a
squad of 21 men, headed by Capt
Frank Aikens, to defend Michigan's
Western Conference indoor track title
this week-end in the University of
Chicago Field House.
The Wolverines will leave Ann Ar-
bor Friday morning. Preliminaries
in the half-mile and 440-yard dash
will be held Friday night and Satur-
day afternoon the trials in the 60
yard dash and 70-yard high hurdles
will be staged.
Capt. Aikens Heads List
Hoyt included the following men on
his list: Capt. Aikens, Davidson
Starr, Stoller, Patton, Stiles, Osgood
Hunt, Birleson, Mason, Gorman
Brelsford, Fink, O'Connell, DeVine
Stone, Staehle, Fisher, White, Droul-
ard and Townsend.
Michigan, indoor champions fo
the last two years, will have more

than a few difficulties in annexing its
third straight indoor crown. In the
dash Sam Stoller will face three other
men that have done :06.2 this winter
with Bob Grieve of Illinois appearing
to be the most feared of the trio. Be-
sides Grieve, Dooley of Iowa and Col-
lier of Indiana have turned in the
fast times.
Ellinwood Favorite In 440
Ray Ellinwood of Chicago is f.a-
vored in the 440, having already don
it in 49 seconds flat on the indoor
track. Beetham of Ohio State and
Hicks of Indiana also possess excel-
lent records for the event this year
which means that Stan Birleson wil
have his hands full in placing among
the leaders.
Starr, Davidson and Gorman will
probably be the Michigan entries witt
880. Kleinschmidt of Wisconsin is
the defending champion but with
Hobbs of Indiana having a 11:56.1
half to his credit is not expected tc

'The HOT

Keen Selects
Five Matmen
I For Iowa Trip

The biggest problem of the week in
Big Ten track circles is how many
times a man can run a hard race in
one evening. The matter takes on
special significance in view of the
Conference meet this week-end and
the fact that valuable points to any
team may be picked up by its repeat-
"Doublers" abound in the Confer-
ence this year in every event above
the quarter-mile, and especially in
the distance runs with the powerful
Hoosier trio of Lash, Smith and
If the Indiana trio can run
twice in one night, in the mile
and two-mile, as effectively as
they have run the events singly
or without pressure in the past,
there is little question that the
meet will go to Indiana. For not
only will the Hoosiers pile up
points in their own favor but they
will be cutting Michigan out of
precious points in those events.
But doubt remains as to whether
the Hoosiers can run two hard races
in one evening, despite the fact that
Don Lash is seen returning to his
admitted strength as the result of a
double win last week in 4:16.5 and
Especially is there doubt regarding
Smith and Deckard. Despite the
fact that earlier in the season Smith
was a double winner with exception-
al times, in the Michigan-Indiana
meet a hard-run mile which he
won left him completely burned out
for the two-mile.
There can be no doubt that Billy
Hayes of Indiana is getting little sleep
this week as he works out combina-
tions to include Lash, Smith, and
Deckard as well as Duke Hobbs, who
may run the mile as well as the half-
But the doubling situation is not
confined to the mile and two-mile by
any means, as potential repeaters are
entered in every event. Their im-
portance lies in the fact that they
may place in two events to cut down
point totals of teams fighting for
the title although their teams are
out of the money themselves.
Outstanding of these are Ray
Ellinwood of Chicago and Chuck
Beetham of Ohio State, either
of whom could win either the
half-mile or quarter-mile on the
basis of past performances. But
Ellinwood, who has established
a world's record of 49 seconds in
the quarter and who has run the
fastest half of the winter in the
Conference, has never doubled
during the present season.
Beetham, who ran the fastest
half-mile run by a college runner
last year and who holds the Yost
Field House record wtih a :50.3
quarter run last week, showed
then the difficulty of doubling on
the same program when he failed
to place in the half-mile after
setting that record.
Michigan enters the Conferenc
meet with .a single advantage -
minimum of doublers compared to th
- other chief contender, Indiana. Onl:
Stan Birleson will be asked to ru
twice as far as a quarter-mile whe
he runs in the 440 and on the rela;
team. Especially in the distanc
1, vns, where Indiana will find it nec
essary to double some of its strength
does Michigan hold the advantage a
fresh entries will run in both events.
Five net stars headed by Wilme
s Allison, the national champion an
e number-one ranking ace, were se
r lected to oppose the Mexican Davi
r Cup squad in April. The list includ
ed Don Budge, Bitsy Grant, Gen
Mako and John Van Ryn.

Capt. Heavenrich, Wright,
Speicher, Thomas And
Cameron Seek Titles
Five varsity wrestlers accompanied
by Coach Cliff Keen will entrain for
Iowa City this afternoon to repre-
sent Michigan in the Conference
championships next Friday and Sat-
urday. Those making the trip are
John Speicher, Paul Cameron, Earl
Thomas, Capt. Wally Heavenrich and
Tiny Wright.
Each of the five have produced a
winning percentage in the ninemeets
held so far this year. Speicher wres-
tling in the 118-pound division has
won seven matches and lost but two.
His only two losses were administered
him by Penn State and Indiana op-
Cameron Has Good Record
Paul Cameron has won three
matches and lost two in the 126-
pound division. His toughest oppo-
nent will be Duffy of Indiana who
Coach Keen believes is the best man
of his weight in the country.
Michigan's best chance for an in-
dividual title lies in the 135-pound
class in which Earl Thomas will rep-
resent the Wolverines. Earl has won
seven matches and lost two, one by
default when he was injured. His
hardest competition will come from
Larson of Iowa who is the defending
Heavenrich In Last Meet j
Captain Heavenrich will try to
make his last appearance in Michigan
colors a winning one. He was de-
feated by Bryce of Indiana last week
in an extremely close match in the
145-pound division but may be able
to turn the tables in the Big Ten
meet. His record for the year shows
six wins and three losses.
If Tiny Wright is in good condition,
he may be able to go far in the
heavyweight division. His only de-
feats this year were given him by
Bonino of Washington and Lee and
tMcDaniels of Indiana. Against this
he can boast of six victories.

Phi Psi And All-Stars

Freshman Gridmen Using New
Machine To Help Line Work


An ingenious new machine designed
to improve the blocking, tackling and
defensive work of Michigan linemen
is now being used by the freshman
football squad, working out daily at
the Intramural Sports Building.
The machine, known commercially
as the Rae Crowther Blocking Ma-
chine, is a most unique structure
somewhat resembling a battleship
in form. It is centered on a large,
seven-sided steel chassis from which
extend in opposite directions two V-
Ahaped uprights. These uprights
terminate in two vertical pads which
slope inward near the middle. A hori-
zontal pad extends between the two
uprights and here players may prac-
tice defensive work, especially in the
use of the hands. The machine is
about 3 feet 9 inches high and al-
most as wide.
Blocking Must Be Right
The greatest advantage of the ma-
chine, as stated by Coach Ray Court-
right, is that it not only emphasizes
power in blocking but the blocking
must be technically correct. Since
players practice together on the ma-
chine, incorrect blocking by one will
cause it to swerve towards his side
and thus clearly bring out who is at
fault. The machine is weighted down
by players standing on the steep
chassis, and thus an increased weight
adds to the difficulty of the blocker.
Coach Wally Weber, freshman foot-
ball mentor, was hesitant in predict-
ing any success for the device. "It is
successful for our type of work be-
cause it can be used inside on wres-
tling pads and thus decrease the
chance of injury of the players," he
claimed, "and it will improve the
blocking if the boys stick to it.
Will Not Replace Human
"However,"' he added, "we do not
expect it to take the place of the
human obstacle which the player
meets in the actual game." Coach
Weber stated that he did not know
to just what extent the machine was

now used, other than that Coach
Noble Kizer of Purdue had recently
installed one.
The player is taught to hit the
pad at its slope,which is near the;
bottom, and to push upward. This
aids him in acquiring the habit of
blocking low and bowling the oppos-
ing player off his feet. If the pads
are met incorrectly, the machine is
apt to lash back at the biocker and
throw him off balance - anotherad-
vantage of the device.

In the delicate art of make-up, clever co-eds of today have o
certain advantage over the Frosh girls of- say '29. Following
the example of experienced stars of stage and screen, today's
co-ed has better lighting over her vanity table.
In the theater star's dressing room, lights encirclc th
mirror, revealing mercilessly any flaw in make-up. A definite
amount of light is required for the vanity table, just as there
is a definite amount required for studying, writing, or other
visual tasks. To be certain that your lighting is adequate for
the most effective make-up, measure the amount of light in
your room with that fascinating little scientific instrument called
