lege or university accustomed to
winning football elevens gather after
a disastrous season, there are rumb-
lings, a few sincere moans, many
hearty growls, and even demands of
'fire the coach.' That's what made
this gathering unique. Not a rumble.
not a moan, not a howl, not a single
voice for any major change in ad-
ministration of athletics."
Individuals Give Support
Personal sentiment of important
alumni in that Chicago group, in-
cluding Judge R. Jerome (Duke)
Dunne, captain of the 1922 Michigan
football eleven, was almost unani-
mous in support of Kipke.
The same feeling toward the Wol-
verine mentor was manifest among
eastern alumni who gathered in
Philadelphia last fall for the Michi-
gan-Penn game. They sought no
one's scalp and left an impression of
complete approval of the present
Tapping In Accord
Hyde deprecated the "newspaper
route" method of creating disturb-
ing rumors about the whole situa-
tion. "It's a matter for university
authorities," he averred.
It was also learned that T. Hawley
Tapping, alumni secretary, now visit-
ing in Puerto Rico, is thoroughly
cognizant of the support given Kipke
and in complete accord with it.
Frick Expects
Close Pennant
Race In 1937
Clubs Foresee Increased
Attendance; Giants Seeni
Weaker Than In '36
NEW YORK, Jan. 6.-(P)-A year
of "renewed prosperity"-as Presi-
dent Ford Frick calls it-and of a
tighter pennant race among five and
possibly six clubs appears in store for
the National Baseball League in 1937.
As the hot-stovers begin to disband
their winter proceedings and ground-
keepers start readying training camps
for the southern invasion, those two
factors loom above all others, not-
withstanding such sidelights as Dizzy
Dean's war of words with the Car-
dinals, other threatened holdouts and
the New York Giants' chances of re-
peating their miracle.
Giants Weaker
There seems little reason to doubt
that the large crowds which sky-
rocketed major league baseball far
out of the red last year won't be
back. With the expansion of the
profitable night ball to St. Louis, new
personalities in the game, young-
sters taking over key jobs on most
clubs, and what appears to be a
more even distribution of playing
strength, thedturnstiles should click
at an even merrier pace.
The Giants are definitely regarded
as a weaker club than the one which
. staged its amazing climb to win the

'36 pennant. As a result, the 1937
title chase shapes up as anybody's
affair, with the Pirates as the stand-
outs, and the now experienced "kid
team" at Cincinnati also rated a pos-
Bees Dark Horse
And you can pretty well put the
Boston Bees down as the "dark
horse," while the Phillies and Dodg-
ers again look to be the "weak sis-
With Bill Terry on the bench for
keeps and Travis Jackson managing
the club's new International League
farm at Jersey City, the Giants' in-
field needs rebuilding.

able 1936 pitching record are ques-

Perry Upsets Dope To Beat Vines In ProD ebut

- Associated Press Photo I
Winner in his first match as a professional, Fred Perry (right) formerI
world champion amateur tems phyer, inghs with his opponent Ells-
worth Vines after the game last night at Madison Square Garde'n. Perry
took his opponcnt in 4 sets, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. The match was the first
of several that will be played between th^ two in a nationwide tour.
Vines, three-time American champion, was ceded the victory by most
experts before the match, due to his previous experience in professional
competition. A capacity crowd of 17,630 paid $53,000 to watch the
%event. Perry's contract calls for 37? per cent of all gate receipts,
while Vines is to get 12, per cent. George Lott, Jr., Bruce Barnes, and
"Big Bill Tilden also appeared on the program. The first two will
tour the country with Perry and Vines.
Seven Championships
W E TAKE OUR HAT OFF to Chuck Hoyt, Varsity track coach.. In six
years as head of the thinclads he has won seven Big Ten championships,
including both indoor and outdoor meets . . . His 1935 team took both titles
and we think his present aggregation will be strong enough to do the same
thing . . . Hoyt's charges work hard and love it . . . They know it's no fun
to be a loser .. . The professional tennis troup starring Ellsworth Vines and
Fred Perry will appear Tuesday night in Detroit . . . Anyone wanting to see
the net game as it should be will be there.
Ann Arbor boxing fans ... and there are plenty of them . . . are awaiting
the annual gore splashing battles late this month that will open the Golden
Gloves tourney . . . The first round of fights will be staged Jan. 26 in the
Armory . . . If schedule arrangements mean anything Northwestern should
rate as the main contender for the Conference cage title . . . The Wildcats
are the only recognized contender not playing either Purdue or Indiana ...
Michigan and Illinois, play them both-.
Fisher Looking Forward
A TWIN BILL is on the Wolverine athletic card for Saturday . . . The wres-!
tlers face Dearborn at Yost Field House . . . and Sarnia invades the
coliseum to battle the hockey sextet . . . Jewell Young, spectacular Purdue
forward, appears headed for the individual scoring crown of the Big Ten --*
Against Wisconsin Monday night he scored 27 points . . . Saturday he will
have his chance against the Wolverines . .. and we're betting that he'll be
stopped far short of that amazing total.
The New York Giants, National League champions, seem to be out to
duplicate the extensive farm system of the Cardinals . . . They recently
added Albany to the list . . . And while speaking of baseball Coach Ray
Fisher of the Michigan nine is already looking forward to his 1938 season ...
Ray thinks it will be one of his best . . .Thti coming '37 club should be a
powerhouse also . . . Joe DiMaggio says he's through swinging at bad balls
... If he could hit .345 his first year . . . even though he did swing at the
wide ones . . . what will his mark be this year?
Scholastic Strictness
PETE LISAGOR. . . sophomore on the sports staff . . . returned from Chi-
cago with the.report that.Chelso Tomagno, last year's cage captain, is
alternating his time between selling humidifiers and playing basketball in
the Windy City League, a semi-pro circuit . . . Recently against a whirlwind
colored quintet Chels was assigned to guard the center, a tall fellow who
was uncanny in handling the ball . . . Tamagno, driven to exhaustion by
the man's wizardry, walked off the floor after the tussle muttering, "Black
Professor James Weber Linn of the University of Chicago . .. who has a
penchant for expressing his views in the Voice of the People columns . . .
wrote to a Chicago sports editor, pointing out that the three schools exacting
strict scholastic requirements in the Big Ten were Michigan, Chicago and
Wisconsin . . . It was an unkind vag, if not Prof. Linn himself, who added,
"yes, and look where they finished in the 1936 grid standings!"

Week-End Tilts
To Test Ability
Of Varsity Five
Title Hopes May Depend
On Wins Over Purdue
And Northwestern
Michigan's basketball team runs
the gauntlet this week end. If the
Varsity comes through unscathed
there will be a n1w favorite for Big
Ten title honors, if it splits Mich-
igan will be the Conference "dark-
horse," but if the Wolverines lose
both games their name will be mud,
and mud of the darkest complexion.
Saturday evening the Varsity cag-
ers travel to Lafayette, Ind. and take
on the Conference's perennial nee-
sis. Purdue. Monday night, North-
western, victor over Illinois' Boud-
read and Nesbit, comes to Ann Arbor.
Still Favorites
The Boilermakers and the Wildcats
are, along with Indiana, prime fa-
vorites df the "experts" to cop the
title. The two Hoosier teams are un-
doubtedly strong and the Evanston
outfit is favored by a weak schedule.
Michigan is really the only team con-
sidered strong enough to defeat
Northwestern and the hopes of the
other eight teams in the Big Ten will
be with the Wolverines.
More important at present, how-
ever, is the collision with Purdue. The
Varsity looked sour at Indianapolis
Tuesday night. The boys' minds
seemed to be someplace else beside
in the Butler Field House and Coach
Cappy Cappon has a strong suspicion
that that someplace was the Jef-
ferson High School gym, home of
Piggy Lambert's firehorse troupe.
Looked Sluggish
Jake Townsend, although playing
satisfactory ball really had an "off"
night. His shots refused to drop.
For a while the ball seemed more like
a watermelon than a basketball and
the basket bore a close resemblance
to a peanut sack.
the whole team was sluggish. But-
ler was picking tp most of the loose
balls because Michigan refused to
go after them. The Wolverine set-up
shots declined to be set up.
Young Too Much
Lost Monday night when the Boil-
ermnakers opened their Big Ten cam-
paign for retention of their crown
only one man looked especially good.
But he was so good that the mediocre
performance of the rest of the quintet
was forgivable The hero, of course,
was Jewell Young who hit the basket
for 11 field goals and five free throws
and an almost unprecedented total
of 27 points.
Wisconsin, who tried to present the
competition, played good basketball
but Young was too much for the
Madison five and the outcome was
never in question.

Working out nightly in an obscure
ccrner of the Yost Field House are 35
or so well built athletes with a pur-
pose-Michigan's varsity wrestling
"Working out" is, at best, a mild
term to describe the type of physical
exercises which these candidates un-
dcrgo during the week. Perhaps no
other sport requires the amount of
continually applied physical energy
and stamina as does the mat game,
and only a well-conditioned body is
able to stand up under this nightly
Is Technical Sport
These men, however, enjoy their
work. One might safely say .they
revel in it. To them wrestlinig is
much more than a contest of brawn
and power. It is a highly technical
sport, embodying a great degree of
coordination, agility, speed and clear
:hinking. They wrestle because they
like to, and when they do so they
exemplify aggressiveness and deter-
The aforementioned purpose of the
squad this year is not entirely one
in terms of victories. Needless to say

Golden Gloves
Matches Here
MayDraw 70
With the deadline for entries only
a few weeks away, the fourth an-
nual Ann Arbor Golden Gloves tour-
nament is rapidly gaining momen-
tum. About 70 contestants are ex-
pected to fight in the elimination
bouts which are scheduled for Jan.
26 and 27. The finals will be held on
Feb. 3.
The contestants will engage in 16
divisions-eight for novices and eight
open divisions for more experienced
boxers. The 16 winners will go to
Grand Rapids to compete in the
state tournament and the Grand
Rapids champions will be sent to the
national Golden Gloves tournament
in Chicago.
Last year, Ann Arbor's welter-
weight titlist, Barney Gemelli, went
on to win the statechampionship but
was unable to leave his job long
enough to make the trip to Chicago
and the national tourney.
Ann Arbor fight fans will be look-
ing for local talent to follow in the
footsteps of the Urso brothers, Patsy
and Jimmy, who went on to boxing
glory in the amateur ranks after
getting their start in the local tour-
nament. Jimmy was the bantam-
weight representative for the United
States in the Olympic competition.

Drew No Gate
This obscurity is not difficult to ex-
plain. Wrestling in this sector of thet
country is thought of almost wholly
in professional terms. The hokum
and scandal which has, of late, been
attached to the pro racket has not
aided the simon-pures in their effort
to gain some measure of attention
from sport fans.
Then too, varsity wrestling at
Michigan has not enjoyed much luck
as far as wins and losses go. This cer-
tainly has not aided the gate, for
mediocre teams in any sport have
difficulty drawing
This year appears to be a different
story. Although it is much too early
to predict any future for the team,
it undoubtedly is considerably better
than any in recent years. It's true
merit will be tested this week and
next when it will engage three of its
toughest opponents of the current
Tough Foes Listed
On Saturday the varsity meets the
Dearborn Athletic Club, a powerful
aggregation of ex-college stars and
amateur luminaries, in the Yost Field
House at 7:30 p.m. The following
Friday, January 15, the team travels
t.o Lehigh, where wrestling enjoys a
position similar to football at other
colleges, for a dual meet. The Le-
high outfit is considered by many as
the best wrestling team in the East,
and should the varsity eke out a
victory they will be hard to stop
The following night . Michigan
tackles another eastern team not far
behind Lehigh, Franklin and Mar-
shall. The fact that these two meets
fall on successive nights won't help
she cause much either. But then
