By RAY GOODMAN
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Butler Field
House, Jan. 5.-(Special to The
Daily)-Playing ragged ball against a
rough Butler University outfit, Mich-
igan's Varsity basketball team out-
fought Tony Hinkle's Bulldogs, 36-
27 in Jake Townsend's homecoming
appearance at the Butler Field
House.
Leading at the half, 11-10, after
playing sloppy ball, the Wolverines
came to life and took a comfortable
lead which they held throughout the
second period despite the remarkable
long shooting of the Hoosier five.
Gee Shoots Well
Capt. Johnny Gee, entering the
game but with three minutes of the
first half remaining, collected nine
points to lead Michigan's scoring.
Townsend had a more or less "off"
night despite the fact that he made
six points and a number of assists.
In the first half, Michigan refused
to take advantage of the breaks while
Butler gathered up every loose ball.
Chet Jaggers looked good ball-hawk-
ing for Butler, and George Perry was
outstanding guarding Townsend and
picking up eight points.
Sink Long- Ones
Butler made nine of their 11 field
goals from the field while Michigan
did not take any long shots.
There was no scoring until four
and a half minutes had elapsed when
Townsend dropped a free throw and
then a half minute later Herm Fish-
manl dropped in a one-handed shot.
Matt Patanelli took a pass from
Townsend to give Michigan a five-
point lead. Then Butler gathered
speed and went ahead until Gee en-
tered the lineup.
In the second half Michigan start-
ed working its set-up plays around
its pivot men and despite numerous
fouls gradually built up the margin
that it held at the end of the ball
game. About 4,000 persons witnessed
the contest.

A GUSH OF HOT AIR from
Detroit Tuesday morning,
contained in another of the ever-
talking Tod Rockwell's contribu-
tions to The Free Press, carried
with it the implication that
Harry Kipke might take over the
position of Detroit Lion coach,!
succeeding George "Potsy" Clark
who resigned Monday.
According to Rockwell Gus Dorais'
is considered a likely successor to
Clark by many close observers of
professional football in Detroit. The
former Michigan quarterback refutes
this idea, however, by putting the
following terse statement into the
mouth of Dorais:
"No, I am not interested in3
coaching the Detroit Lions. But I
understand Harry Kipke is look-
ing for a spot to light on. He may
be interested."
That this statement was never
made was learned Tuesday afternoon
when Dorais hastened to get in
touch with Kipke by telephone and
assure him that the words were en-
tirely the product of Rockwell's high-
ly imaginative mind. All those ac-
quainted with Dorais know that he
is definitely not the type of man to
make such a statement as Rockwell
accredited him with.

-Associated Press Photo
Herm Fishman, flashy junior
guard, tops all Michigan scorers at
present and is rapidly coming to
the fore as one of the outstanding
cagers on the Varsity this year.
Along with his dead-eye tactics,
Fishman's floor work and ball
handling have made him one of
the most feared men of the Varsity
aggregation.

WITH the race for the Big Ten
' basketball championship prom-
ising to be the hottest in years, all
of six teams eyeing the title, Michi-
gan fans are in for a treat as far as
games here are concerned. The Wol-
verines, one of the aggregations con-
sidered as a contender for the crown,
meet Purdue, Indiana and North-
western on the Field House hardwood
with the result being that there will
be plenty of red hot basketball to be
seen in Ann Arbor during the next
two months.
Saturday night Michigan opens1
its conference schedule at Lafay-
ette, Ind., against the always
powerful Purdue five. Last year
the Boilermakers beat the Wol-
verines twice, the second time be-
ing forced to come from behind
to take a 38-27 victory, and to
repeat those wins this season
would probably knock Coach
Cappon's team out of the title.
Next Monday night Northwestern
will be here for one of the six re-
imaining home games on the schedule
and a crowd of 10,000 fans will be
expected to view the battle. The
Wildcats have dropped but one game
this season, that to Notre Dame by
one point, and are highly rated by
the experts. All in all it should be
a battle royal that no one will want
to miss.
rTHE EYES of the tennis world will
be focused tonight upon Madison
Square Garden in New York City
where Fred Perry makes his pro de-
but in a match with Ellsworth Vines,
acclaimed as the king of the profes-
sional net world.
Perry, for several years the out-
standing figure in amateur ten-
nis and the only foreign player
to ever win the United States
championship three successive
years, quit the simon pure ranks
at the heighth of his glory and
therein lies the importance of
tonight's match. Vines is un-
doubtedly at the top of his game
and the match may truly be
billed as a "world's champion-
ship" affair.
Perry's decision to enter the play-
for-pay ranks changed the balance
of power in the lawn tennis world
and once more made winning the
Davis Cup more than a mere possibil-
ity for the United States. It also
reopened the discussion of an open
tennis meet for both professionals
and amateurs and it now appears
that within a few years such a meet
will be held.
The International Federation
meets in March at Paris and may
change its constitution to allow an
open meet. Imagine such stars as
Vines, Perry, Tilden, Lott, Stoefen,
Nusslein, Richards, Barnes, Gledhill,
Kozeluh, Ramillon, Plaa and Bell,

Varsity Co-Captain
For Position On
Relay Team

Jack Kasley, co-captain and star
breast-stroker of the Varsity natators,'
was named on the 1936 All-Americanj
3wimming team which was announced1
recently. He gained a position on the
300-yard medley relay team.1
Kasley, the fastest man in the
country in the 100-yard breast-stroke
event, was included in that division.
The medley consists of the back-j
stroke, breast-stroke and free-style;
swims. John Higgins, perennial foe
of Kasley, selected in the single
breast-stroke event which is longerI
than the medley swim. This event
is run either for 220 yards or 200
meters.
Dick Degener, Olympic winner on
the springboard last summer, a for-
mer Wolverine star and National Col-
legiate diving champion for two years
was the only other Michigan man
to be mentioned onthe team. Adolf
Kiefer, sensational young back-
stroker of the Lake Shore Athletic
Club in Chicago, was selected in the
back-stroke event and the medley
relay. -Jack Medica of the Univer-
sity of Washington, Ralph Flanagan
of Miami and Peter Fick of New York
were the other winners of more than
one place on the mythical team.
The committee in charge of the
selections was headed by Clyde
Swendser, chairman of the All-Amer-
ican Board of Swimming. In addi-
tion to other members of the board,
he was assisted by Johnny Weismul-
ler, former star tanker, now portray-
ing "Tarzan" roles in the movies.
'Dutch' Clark Is New
Detroit Lion Mentor
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5.-OP)-
George A. Richards, president of the
Detroit Lions professional football
club, announced today the signing of
Earl "Dutch" Clark, outstanding
Lion quarterback, to coach the team
next year.
Clark succeeds George "Potsy"
Clark, who notified Richards today
he had signed to coach the Brooklyn
Dodgers. His contract expired Jan. 1
and was not renewed.

Off after a shaky start and the loss
of their first two games Michigan's
Varsity hockey team has apparently
slipped into high and is headed for1
a big year. Statistics prove it. {
Although they stand even-stephen
in the matter of games won and lost,
the pucksters took their last two en-
counters in convincing style from
formidable opponents and to date
have materially outscored the oppo-
sition despite a young and inex-
perienced net minder.
Michigan has counted 22 goals to
their opponents 16, and 14 of the
Michigan goals have been chalked up
in the last two games. And the of-
fense is not the only thing that has
shown great improvement.
Team On Way
In the last two games opponents
have been limited to four goals, while
in the first two clashes of the season
Bill Chase and Bill Wood plucked 12
pucks out of the twine between them.
The Wolverines are definitely on the
way.
Saturday night's clash with the
strong Sarnia team will serve as an
indication as to whether or not Coach
Eddie Lowrey's sextet has suffered
any ill effects from the holiday lay-
off. Most of the squad took part in
at least mild work-outs throughout
the vacation and in all probability
this weeks practice drills should be
all that is required to return the
team to top form.

assists for a 16-point total. Gib
James, four points back in second
place, has counted six times and
been credited with the same number
of assists. Dick Berryman and Johnny
Fabello Vre tied for third with two
goals and an assist apiece.
One of the reasons for the Wol-
verine's recent improvement has been
the lack of penalties they have suf-
fered. Thus far only seven penalties
have been meted out to Wolverines
while rival team members have been
sent to the specially designated re-
served seat section 13 times for in-
fractions of the rules.

By CARL GERSTACKER
When you go to a charity or milk
fund prize fight with that nice feeling
that the money you are spending is
going to a good cause, you might be
more than a little surprised to find
that only' a quarter, (and that is a
high estimate) of your price for ad-
mission actually goes to charity.
You may feel kindly toward charity
and desire to help the widows and
orphans but the fighters don't feel
that way. In fact Joe Louis, Detroit's
brown bomber cheated sweet charity
out of $240,000 of the gate when he
knocked Max Baer out in four rounds
in New York at a benefit for the
Milk Fund of the Hearst papers.
Fought Simms
Joe, whose sobriquet "the brown
bomber" has become so popular that
burlesque beauties are now calling
themselves "blond bombers," recently
fought Eddie Simms, a substitute for
the fast aging Johnny Risko, in
Cleveland for charity.
The fight took in about $50,000,
a fair enough sum for charity but by
the time the money had actually
reached the hands of the beneficiary.
there was less than $12,000 left, and
at that the widows and orphans were
lucky.
Cheats Charity
As usual, Joe took the biggest
share, $27,000, for putting Simms to
sleep in 18 seconds. Taxes and the
American Legion took about $2,500,
bringing the total to $30,000 and leav-j
ing only $20,000 for charity; but
wait, the vultures aren't finished yet.
Eddie Simms, the other fighter
who so obligingly took a sudden nap,
received $4,000 for his sn~ores; and
Frosh Court Squad
Resumes Practice
After their vacation lay-off the
freshman basketball squad again re-
sumed practice with all the members
of the team seeing some action in
scrimmages.
Coach Ray Fisher again nas the
squad down to around 20 players.
Since his last cut a few more boys had
come out, increasing the number, but
cuts now and then have once more
left the freshmen in a workable size.
Working around a team composed
of Jim Ray, Charley Pink, Freddie
Trosko, Herb Brogan, Russ Dobson,
and Joe Savilla, Fisher formed anoth-
er team from the players and with
the remainder of the players at hand
substituted in both teams freely.

the prelim fighters were paid a total
of $3,350 for their efforts. Miscel-
laneous items such as the printing
of tickets, traveling expenses for
fighters, rental of the hall, referee,
postage, telegrams, telephone calls.
etc., cost about $3,500, leaving aboutE
$12,000 for charity.
And so, "the quality of mercy is
being strained" and it is doubtful)
,vhether the money that went to the
vidows was "twice blessed" as far as
Joe Louis was concerned for the only
person upon whom "it droppeth as
the gentle rain from heaven" seems
to be the "brown bomber from Mul-
berry Street."

Coach Keen is still undecided as to

more than likely though that Cam-
