Feature Of Match
Ten Varsity wrestlers will leave
Sunday for their initial and one of
their most formidable matches of the
year, Coach Cliff Keen announced
yesterday. Their opponents will be
the New York Athletic Club, and the
meet is scheduled for Tuesday eve-
ning, December 22.
The New York contingent will be
out for revenge and from all observa-
tions, Michigan will enter the match
as a definite underdog. Last: year's
team pulled an upset in defeating the
New York outfit, but they were aided
by the poor condition of the latter
who did not regard the match too
Ex-College Stars
The New Yorkers are, composed
mainly of ex-college stars, two of
them, Joe LaTout and Ben Bishop,
being former national champions.1
Keen stated that the Varsity would
need plenty of luck to eke out a vic-
tory, but that he looked for close
matches in all of the divisions.
The following men will make the
trip: 113 pounds, John Speicher; 126
pounds, Harold Rosenn and Paul
Cameron; 135 pounds, Earl Thomas;
145 pounds, Lewis Mascuruskus; 155
pounds, Harland Danner; 165 pounds,
Captain Frank Bissell and Bill Lov-
ell; 175 pounds, Frank Morgan; un-
limited division, Forrest Jordan.
Thomas-LeTout Bout
Speicher, Cameron, Thomas Bissell,
and Lowell are lettermen, and all of
them, with the exception of Lowell
who is battling Morgan for a berth,
will wrestle in the meet. The fea-
ture match of the evening will be the
Thomas - LaTout fracas. Thomas
barely missed an Olympic berth last
year and should fight on even terms
with the New York star.
Rosenn, Morgan, Danner and Jor-
dan are all sophomores, of limited ex-
perience but much promise. They are
faced with the task of wrestling ex-
perienced veterans, and Keen is hop-
ing to get a better line on their ability
in their performance in New York.
Hockey Called
Best Business
Or Profession
Patrick, Ranger Manager,
Claims There Is Better
Pay In PuckSport
NEW YORK, Dec. 17.-(A)-Lester
Patrick, siver-haired president and
manager of the New York Rangers,
recommended hockey today as "the
most promising sports business and
profession in America"
As a profession, he pointed out:
"The average big league hockey
player lasts 10 years (Patrick him-
self stayed up 19). If he's a top-
notcher, he'll make around $10,000
a year and he plays for only four
and a half months each year. There's
no minimum salary in our league, but
the average is $4,500.
"Anybody who gets into it now as
a player has a great chance, because

the demand for men who know the
game is going to be great in the fu-
Consistent Money Maker
As a business, he says:
"Hockey has been the most con-
sistent money maker of any sport in
New York. In the last few years, the
promoters of boxing, for example,
have taken a beating. Here in Mad-
ison Square Garden, hockey has been
the -biggest money-maker.
At present, a rule on the books of
the National League limits the direct
salary of players to $7,500, but there
are ways of getting more.
Patrick estimated that Ching John-
son, former Ranger defense star, has
saved $100,000 out of his hockey earn-
ings, and Eddie Shore, of the Bos-
ton Bruins, is said to have laid away
around $150,000.
Top Salaried Men
Top-salaried men in the game to-
day are Shore, Sweeney Schriner,I
and Art Chapman, New York Amer-
icans; Charlie Conacher, Toronto
Maple Leafs; Ebbie Goodfellow, Norm
Smith and Herb Lewis, Detroit Red
Wings and Paul Thompson, Chicago
All of which is saying nothing
about Mr. Patrick, who at 53 is well
fixed and enjoys life when he is away
from Madison Square Garden at alh

Trosky Leads
A.L. With 162
Runs Driven In
Indian Slugger Gains Only
Title Not Won By Yanks;
Foxx Is Second
CHICAGO, Dec. 17.-'P)-The big
bat swung by Hal Trosky, Cleveland's
young first baseman, brought him his
first American League leadership at
batting in runs last season and kept
New York's Yankees from making a
sweep of honors in that important
Trosky's war club drove in 162 runs.
49 more than he had whenhetfinished
fourth in 1935 and 10 more than the
1936 total compiled by Lou Gehrig,
leader of the walloping Yankees' as-
sault on records. Jimmy Foxx, of
Boston, was third with 143, and Zeke
Bonura, of Chicago, had 138 for
fourth place, leaving first basemen
in possession of the four top positions
for the second straight season.
Greenberg Led In 1935
Hank Greenberg, of Detroit, led in
1935 with 170 runs batted in but was
able to play in only 12 games' last
year due to a fractured wrist. Gehrig
was runnerup to Greenberg that sea-
son with 119, Foxx was third with
115, while Trosky had 113. Trosky's
triumph also made it the seventh
consecutive season in which a first
baseman led the league. Gehrig won
in 1930 and 1931, Foxx was tops in
1932 and 1933 and Gehrig bounced
back in 1934.
Eighteen players batted in 100 or
more runs, bettering the former ma-
jor league record of 17, set by the Na-
tional League in 1930. Following the
four leaders were: Julius Solters, St
Louis, 134; Luke Appling, Chicago
128; Earl Averill, Cleveland, 126;
Goose Goslin, Detroit, and Joe D
Maggio, New York, 125; Beau Bell
St. Louis, 123; Bob Johnson, Phila-

ton, 118; Charley Gehringer, Detroit
116; Al Simmons, Detroit, 112; Tony
Lazzeri, New York, 109; Bill Dickey
and George Selkirk, New York, 107
and Marvin Owen, Detroit, 105.
The Yankees set three new team
records for runs batted in. - By slug-
ging in 995 runs they bettered their
own former record of 991, in 1931

record. Gehrig also passed the 150-
