Matmen Meet
New York A.C.



Keen Holds Tryouts Tlis
Week To Choose Squad
Making Trip
Eight Varsity wrestlers, with pos-
sibly one or two alternates accom-
panying, will leave Ann Arbor Fri-
day, New York bound to meet a crack
team representing the New York
Athletic Club on Dec. 22. The squad
will motor to New York arrivng some
time Monday.
Coach Cliff Keen announced yes-
terday that the all-campus wrestling
meet, completed Saturday, gave him
an excellent lineup, on the material
this year, but that he expected to
hold tryouts Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week to ascertain
definitely what men would make the
trip. Coach Keen also stated that he
doubted whether any Varsity letter-
men would be displaced by the other
candidates, for the added experience
of last year merits their choice, for
the trip.'
The New York Athletic Club team
is coached by Murl Thrush, a Mich-
igan alumnus and a former wrestler
under Keen in 1927 and 1928. Thrush
took over the coaching of the New
York team in the latter year and
since then they have lost only two
dual meets, Michigan beating them
on Jan. 3 last year. This was also the
only meet they had ever lost to a col-
lege team.
The feature match will be between
Joe LaTout, a former national cham-
pion, and Earl Thomas in the 135-
pound class. Thomas just missed an
Olympic berth last year and should
battle on even terms with LaTout.
Another lumniary will be Ben Bishop,
at 155 pounds, former national in-
tercollegiate titleholder and Olympic
wrestler at Berlin.

and Address

in the layout of the playing surface,
sets a new high in something or
other. At the present time there are
some six circular figures, and two
linear constructions to be found on
the well appointed rink. Starting at
the nets, a 'crease' of seven foot
radius is inscribed across the front of
and extending behind the posts of
the cage. It is, thoroughly unlawful
for any player to go into that crease,
take a pass ,and shoot.
Shoot At Goalies
Mid-way between the goal and the
sideboards, and 15 feet in front of
the cage mouth at each end of the
ice is located what has been labeled
the 'special spot.' It is from this
spot that face-offs are made, as
penalties for certain technical viola-
tions. Thirty-eight feet in front of
the nets are found 10-foot circles,
whose purpose is to provide a place
from which a 'penalty shot' must be
made. For infractions of certain
rules, the puck is placed in the cen-
ter of this circle in the belligerent's
defense zone, and a member of the
offended team has the privilege of
taking a pot shot at the enemy net
minder who must be all alone in his
efforts to prevent a score.
This latter condition gives rise to
the one perennial stickler in the rule
book. Presented briefly,-no player
shall cross his opponent's red line
ahead of the puck.

stingy, give at least a Quarter - and a Dollar,
if you can afford it.
