Squad Boasts Some
Reserve Material;
Lettermen Return


The return of four lettermen and
an abundance of reserve material
will help Cliff Keen, wrestling coach,
to overcome the injury jinx that
wrecked his squad last year.
In addition to last year's letter
winners, John Speicher, Paul Cam-
eron, Earl Thomas, and Bill Lowell,
Coach Keen will have some fine
sophomore candidates in Harlan
Danner, 155 pounder, Frank Mor-
gan at 165 pounds, Harold Nichols,
145 pounder, and Forrest Jordan, who
is slated for Harry Wright's heavy-
weight berth.
The veteran 155 pounder, Louis
Mascuruskus, who saw little action
last year because of an injured arm
suffered in the Penn State meet,
will be back seeking his old berth.
Another veteran, Frank Bissell, 165
pounder, has returned to school after
leaving last year at the beginning of
the second semester to manage an in-
herited estate. Lilburn Ochs, prom-
ising 175 pounder, will be back after
being forced out of competition last
season because of a badly wrenched
knee. Sid Brubaker, 126-pound pros-
pect, is planning to enter Akron Uni-
Coach Keen has also been thinking
of the future, rounding up some fine
material for his Freshman squad.
From Tulsa Central High School of
Tulsa, Okla. the Wolverine mentor
is expecting W. Benson and F.
Coombs to register the second se-i
mester. Benson rates highly as ai
145-pounder while Coombs has;
turned in some fine performances in
the 135-pound division.
B. Ruppert is expected to transfer
from the U.S. Naval academy where
he has done quite a bit of grappling
in the 155-pound bracket. Another
yearling prospect will be Donald
Nichols of Cresco, Ia. and brother of
Harold Nichols. Don won the state
175-pound title in 1934.
Thing look dark at Temple with
both Dave Smukler and his under-
study John Kusko failing to return
to school. The Owls boast an All-
American tackle possibility in Bill

This slogan of "Join the Olympic
team and see Europe," may sound
all right to the average layman but
to a veteran of the Olympics like
Jesse Owens it's just a "lot of ho-
"No sir, I wanted to see many
places, but not until I refused to take
the trip to Sweden and decided to
come on home did I get to do any
sightseeing at all," Jesse said.
"In the 17 days we stayed at the
Olympic village in Berlin, I never
got more than 100 yards away al-
though the German police were so
very efficient in, trying to keep the
crowds back as much as possible.
During the first few days there I
tried to sneak away to look over the
city, but the folks who either wanted
autographs or pictures just jammed
around so it was impossible to get
The "ebony antelope" received his
share of fan mail, getting an aver-
age of 80 letters a day, many of
which were from Germans. Quite a
few of the letters contained money
when it was made known that many
of the Olympic stars needed spending
"One morning I got up and found
60 marks had been stuffed under the
door of my cottage in the night,"
Jesse said.
In answer to the question as to
whether the sloppy weather condi-
tions slowed him up, Jesse can ex-

hibit a pair of track shoes, the bot-
toms of which are caked with the
pulverized red tile which was used
as a top dressing on the Olympic
track. His spikes instead of coming
away cleanly had picked up consid-
erable quantities of the tile.
Jesse explained one of the reasons
that he did not go to Sweden by say-
ing that, "After the Olympics I
found it hard to run in these other
European meets because I suffered
such a let down from the Olympic
tension that the incentive to run
was lacking and I just knew I wasn't
doing my 'best. That made me feel
bad because I don't like to have
folks pay good money to see me do

Win Over Michigan
Completely outclassed by the Wol-
verines last season, 16-6, the Penn-
sylvania Quaker eleven will be seek-
ing revenge when the two teams meet
at Franklin Field. The Quakers boast
an all veteran squad with at least
seven seniors expected to hold down
regular berths.
'The same powerhouse backfield of
Warwick, Elverson, Kurlish, and
Murray will be back hammering rival
lines and should improve over last
season's mediocre record. After pil-
ing up comfortable leads in the first
half, the Quaker machine seemed
to cease clicking with the result that
many expected victories were turned
into defeats. Already the slogan
around Franklin Field is "no more
second half collapses."
The game will be Michigan's sec-
ond intersectional clash of the sea-

Dial 9028


Paul Tangora, all-conference guard
and candidate for All-American hon-
ors, has laid aside his headgear and
quit the gridiron to sell gas and oil
for the Texaco company of Chicago.
After three years of varsity com-
petition at Northwestern, Tangora
was given all-star honors by the na-'
tions' grid fans when they voted him
first place on the 1936 All-Star team.
Tangora played remarkable ball all
through his career and was the star
of many games. He featured notably
in Northwestern's sensational victory
over Notre Dame last season. His last
spectacular play, a blocked punt, gave
the All-Stars their only two points
against the New York Giants, east-
ern profesional champs.
