Indiana, Illini,
Iowa Favored
In Mat Meet
Four Individual Winners
Return To Guard 1935
Conference Crowns
Illini Defend Title
Wolverine Matmen Given
Little Chance; May Win
One Individual Crown
IOWA CITY, March 12. -On the
eve of the Conference wrestling meet,
Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa rate as
favorites to capture the crown now
being-defended by the Illini. Four of
last year's champions are back to
attempt to retain their titles. They
are Capt. Pete Pakutinsky of Illinois
in the 126-pound division, Bob Lar-
son of Iowa who is defending his,
135-pound crown, Earl Kielhorn of
Iowa in the 165-pound class, and
Ruffy Silverstein of Illinois in the
175-pound division.
Indiana with a dual meet record
of 31 conseecutive wins has brought
five men who are capable of carrying
off the individual championships.
Meyers Is Undefeated
In the 118-pound class, Robert
"Two-Bit" Meyers is undefeated this
year. He is the National A.A.U. 112-
pound winner. Will Duffy threw
Pakutinsky in a recent dual meet and
is considered by many observers to
be the outstanding man of his weight
in the country. Tom Bryce looks like
the standout in the 145-pound divi-
sion. Frank Krahulik was 175-pound
champion in 1934 but is wrestling at
165-pounds this year. In the heavy-
weight division, Charles McDaniels
was the National Collegiate winner.
Illinois won four individual titles
at Chicago last year and in dual
meets this year has bowed only to
the Hoosiers. Blum, who held Mey-
ers to a, draw in the 118-pound class,
Pakutinsky, and Silverstein look like
the best bets for points. Silverstein

Wrestles Last Match

Capt. Wally Heavenrich will rep-
resent Michigan in the 145-pound
class in the Conference meet at
Iowa tonight. This is his last meet.
is the National Collegiate champ in
the lightheavy division and has been
unbeaten in college competition. He
may wrestle in the heavyweight class
as he has been doing in most dual
Iowa And Ohio Given Chance
Given an outside chance to nose out
the Hoosiers or Indians are Iowa and
Ohio State. The Hawkeyes boast two
of last year's champions, Larson and
Kielhorn, while the Buckeyes' best
men are Bernie Mindlin in the 145-
division and Vern Heiser in the 175-
pound class.
Michigan, with five representatives,
may produce some individual winner,
but has little chance for the team
title. John Speicher in the 118-
pound division, Paul Cameron at
126-pounds, Earl Thomas, 135-pound
contender and Michigan's one best
bet, Capt. Wally Heavenrich in the
145-pound class, and Tiny Wright,
heavyweight, face difficult competi-
tion in their weights.

Track Team
Leave Today,
Defends Title
Indiana Seen As Threat.
To Wolverine Claim To
Conference Crown
Twenty-one Varsity trackmen of
Michigan's title-defending squad will
leave this morning for Chicago where
tonight -and Saturday they will at-
tempt to retain their position on the
Western Conference track throne.
There is no question in the minds
of the alleged experts butthat either
Michigan or Indiana will win the
championship. The Wolverines have
held it for the last two years, annex-
ing it in 1935 by the greatest margin
in the history of the meet.
Badgers Picked For Third
Wisconsin will probably finish a
poor third with the rest of the teams
strung out behind, although the Bad-
gers have not lost a meet yet this
year. Chicago appears a good bet,
for the fourth spot in the team stand-
Coach Chuck Hoyt's chief worry
today is not whether Indiana's dis-
tance stars will be able to double
successively in the meet, but rather
whether his outstanding hurdler, Bob
Osgood, will be in top shape. Os-
good, defending champion in the
hurdles, has been troubled all week
with a tight muscle in his right leg
but said yesterday it felt better.
Osgood's Condition Important '
Osgood, if in shape, is expected to
win the hurdles and also play an
important part in giving Michigan's
relay team a first. His loss would
probably cost the Wolverines six or
seven points and very likely the meet.
If the Wolverine squad enters the
meet at full strength the result may
very easily depend on strategy ex-
hibited in the running of the mile and
two mile races. Indiana's hopes for
victory admittedly lie in scoring an
excessive number of points in the
distance events. Track fans attend-
ing the meet will probably see much
jockeying here that may alter the re-
sults considerably from those pre-

Title At Stake
In I-M Hockey
Clash. Tonigrht
Alpha Delta Chi will clash with
the powerful Alleyrats in the title
game of the Intramural play-offs at
the Coliseum tonight as a result of
their 2-0 victor over Sigma Nu in
a semi-final battle last night.
The Alleycats, boasting George
Cooke, Walkerville, Ontario fresh-
man, as well as a number of other
yearling stars, will be slight favorites
to annex the crown which was won
last year by the Berryman A.C.
The Alpha Delts, who will be play-
ing their third game in as many
nights, demonstrated clearly yester-
day that they will be very much in
the running for the title when ref-
eree Bert Smith drops the puck for
the opening face-off tonight.
Bob Alexander and Russ Cole put
the Sigma Nu's out of the play-offs
with two quick fire goals in the open-
ing period of the game. Only a great
performance in the nets by grid man-
ager Bill Bates averted a more hu-
miliating setback for the losers, as
the Alpha Delts kept the pick at Sig-
ma Nu's end of the ice throughout
most of the game.
