Yost To Advance Proposal For

Midwestern Hockey


Would Include
Four Big Ten
College Teams
Plans Will Be Presented
To Conference Heads At
March Meeting
Illinois Is Mentioned
(Continued from Page 1)
adian Minnesota's schedule is similar.
According to Mr. Yost, Michigan's
proposal particularly will be directed
at Illinois. The Urbana school has
one of the best college hockey coli-
seums in the United States.
Makes Second Attempt
Wisconsin, until the 1935 hockey
season,. supported an ice team that
played with Michigan and Minne-
sota for the title. Wisconsin with-
drew from intercollegiate competi-
tion at the beginning of the 1935
season when the university's athlet-
ic authorities decided that playing
conditions were too adverse to com-
pensate for the time devoted to the
program. Wisconsin did not have
an indoor rink, but trained and com-
peted outdoors.
Following the Big Ten track meet
here in 1935, Michigan, through Mr.
Yost, carried on a brief correspon-
dence with the late George Huff.
former athletic director at Illinois, but
Yost did not receive a favorable reply.
Huff's main objection to the plan was
that Illinois did not draw the mater-
ial for hockey and that the school
had sufficient intercollegiate com-
petition without hockey. Huff said
that the students at Illinois were sat-
isfied with arrangements in force at
Illinois, whereby the students parti-
cipated in intramural hockey.
Hockey Is Popular
Mr. Yost hopes that the new ath-
letic director at Illinois will be amen-
able to the league proposal.
Hockey, once classed as a minor
sport at Michigan, has become in-
creasingly popular among the stu-
dents. Conference games against
Minnesota, and formerly against Wis-
consin, have drawn capacity crowds.
Mermen Work
For Hoosiers'
The first swimming meet of the
season with Indiana scheduled for
Saturday afternoon in the Intra-
mural pool should prove to be merely
a warm-up for the Varsity. The
Wolverine tankers, however, may
run into some trouble in the free-'
style distance events.
The Hoosiers held. an. intra-squad
meet last Thursday which gave Coach
Robert Royer a chance to get a line
on the ability of his charges. The
man who will probably furnish the
most trouble for the. Varsity is Bill
Jacobson, a sophomore competing for
the first time this season. He was
the only member of the team to
score a double victory in the intra-
squad meet. He is a distance swim-
mer of no mean ability gaining wins
in the 220 and 440 yard events.
On Wednesday, the Hoosier mer-
men engage in a meet with DePauw
University. This contest should give
an indication of the strength of the
team, being the first outside com-
petition of this season for the In-
diana aggregation.
The contest with Indiana on Sat-
urday is being held in the afternoon

so as not to conflict with the hockey
game with Minnesota that evening.
VANCOUVER, B.C., Jan. 12.-(OP)-t
Jimmy McLarnin declared that plans
to match him with Middleweight
Champion Freddie Steele was news
to him but the former world welter-
weight champ conceded today that
it was at least "an idea."
"I haven't heard a thing about
such a match," Jimmy said, "but it
is an idea-isn't it'?'
Jimmy will leave for Los Angeles
in "a couple of days" to get in shape
"for anything that looks promising."

A.A.U. Relays
First On Card
For Thinclads
Three Dual Meets Listed
For Indoors As Squad
Begins Hard Practice
With a successful defense of their
Big Ten indoor championship their
main objective, Coach Charley Hoyt's
Varsity thinclads have settled down
to serious training for the 1937 season
which will open Feb. 16 with the third'
annual Michigan A.A.U. Relays , in
Yost Field House.
Hoyt has had his charges working
out all through the school year and
the Wolverines are apparently in
good condition. As the Relays come
the second night of the second semes-
ter and little work can be done the
final examination period, which fills
the two preeding weeks, there will be
plenty of ard work in store for the
thinclads during the next three
Michigan's indoor schedule lists
three dual meets to follow the A.A.U.
carnival, these to be with Michigan
State, Ohio State and Pittsburgh. On
March 12 and 13 the Wolverines will
be in Chicago battling the rest of the
Conference for a fourth successive
title and the week following will be{
fighting for a fourth straight in the
Butler Relays.
To all appearances at this early
date Michigan will be a top-heavy
favorite in the Conference engage-
ment for no other team appears to
have the excellent balance combined
with outstanding performers that the
Wolverines possess. Again the
strength of Indiana, Conference Out-
door champions, will be centered
largely in the distance runs.

battles of the Big Ten war for scor-
ing honors has cleared away, leaving!
Purdue's Jewell Young still very much
in possession of the field and com-
pletely reassorting the other as-
pirants for the crown. Young, with
his 51 points, and Gunning of In-

hold their places undisputed,

through the ropes for the first of a
scheduled series of seven-bout fight
shows on Wednesday night, Jan. 201
at Waterman Gym. There will be no
admission charge for these bouts.
In the feature spot of the evening
will be Leonard Spector and Henry
Postoway, light middleweights. Al-
though still lacking in ring exper-
ience both men are capable of a good
performance and are rated by Lar-
son as outstanding members of his
freshman ring class. The other
middleweight bouts will be: Don
Hollis vs. Bob Snyder and Tom Root
vs. Bill Hope.
In the only welterweight go on the
card Sam Root, brother of Tom, will
step into the ring to swap punches
with Herb Roskin.
What to do about the heavyweight
situation for his fight show was still
a puzzle to Vern Larson yesterday
for he is unable to spot a man to
work with his big heavy Bob Tha-
ner. It is certain however that Thal-
ner will be one of the men in the
ring and if another freshman heavy
Joes not put in an appearance soon
it is possible that Don Siegel, star
sophomore footballer, will be the
other. If so the heavyweight battle
will become something interesting in-
deed to watch.
The giant Siegel is rated by Larson
as one of the most finely coordinated
men he has ever watched in the ring,
despite his size.
Injuries Strike
Matmen Again;
Thomas Is Out
The injury jinx which has been
harassing the Varsity wrestlers all
year struck with a vengeance yester-
day, and as a result Coach Cliff Keen
is in a quandry in deciding his line-
up for the two big meets at the end
of the week.
Earl Thomas, who has been in-
capacitated with a knee injury since
the Christmas holidays, suffered a re-
lapse yesterday after it seemed that
he was well on the road to recovery.
Thomas' knee had apparently been
responding well to treatment, but the
injury pained him so much yesterday
that he found difficulty in working
out at all.
Cameron Not In Shape
Paul Cameron, veteran 126-pound-
er, is way out of condition and will
need a lot of hard work to be ready
for the Lehigh meet at Bethlehem.
Pa., on Friday, and the Franklin and
Marshall meet at Lancaster, Pa., on
Saturday. Cameron has been af-
flicted with a throat and tonsilar in-
fection as well as a groin injury in-
curred in practice this week.
Big Butch Jordan, heavyweight
grappler, is down with a touch of the
flu, and several of the other men com-
plained of -feeling a bit sluggish in
practice yesterday.

The matmen face two of the tough-
est teams in the East in their en-
gagements on Friday and Saturday.

opponents to see the respect that
they hold for the Wolverine pivot
man. At Purdue when he got his
hands on the ball three Boilermakers
dropped back on him and smothered
him. Monday night Northwestern
did the same thing and the Wildcats

fairly quivered with fright everyI
time he touched a pass to such a de-
gree that they gave Jake eight free
Odds Are Too Great
There have been very few basket-
ball players who couldn't be stopped
if they were covered on all sides with
the entire defense concentrating on
them. After all, four on one or
three on one is hardly the usual
So far Michigan has really taken
advantage of this concentration of
defense on Townsend. At Lafayette,
Ind., Townsend tried to outplay his
three guards and get his passes away
and he failed for it just can't be
done. Against the Wildcats'he be-
gan to hurry his passing and do a
little shooting himself and the re-
sults were pleasing to the eye.
From now on it can be said with
reasonable assurance that Jake will
be doing his part as far as taking
advantage of the defense strategy
that the Conference has figured out
to stop him. He'll pass faster for
the time being and take his shots.
Must Develop Speed
If the Varsity as a whole can de-
velop some of the speed that it
showed in the last six minutes against
the Wildcats, if it will stop throwing
sloppy passes, if it will start trying
hard on the backboard, if it will try
ball-hawking as it has shown it can
-then Michigan will bedback where
it was before Townsend gave the
Conference a fit of apoplexy and was
just a promising sophomore.
Don't believe this rumor that
Townsend is stopped and before you
decide once and for all that he
doesn't look so good be sure you take
a good look at the floor and see what
is happening.


boys will be back to normal as they
are now back in the Big Ten race.
New Sprinting
1 Threat IS Seens
In Herb Weust
NEW YORK, Jan. 12. - OP) - A
new "white hope",sprint star emerged
from the first indoor track and field
competition today to challenge the
superiority of Negro athletes over the
shorter distances.
The world record-breaking per-
formance of Herbert Weust, Colum-
bia University sophomore, over 100
meters at the Columbus Council K.
of C. meet last week was seen as a
threat to the monopoly on sprint
honors held by Owens, Peacock,
Johnson and Metcalfe during the last
few yeairs.
Weust.a New Rochelle boy, was
clocked in 10.6 seconds, clipping one-
fifth of a second off the indoor record
of 1.8 set by New York's "flying cop,"
Bob McAllister, in 1927. Weust beat
out Marty Glickman, Syracuse
University sorinter, and a member of
the Olympic team last summer.

The delayed appearance of Louis!
Boudreau amongtherfirst 10 is re-
assuring to Illinois fans. He averaged
around 14 points a game in pre-
conference competition. Then in the
Northwestern game he received a hip
injury which kept him off the floor
for a week and limited his appearance
against Wisconsin. Monday night he
found his pace when the Illini upset
the Hoosiers. Now all the fans are
waiting for is to see Tom Nesbit also
find his stride and show what this
much-touted combination can do.
Fred Trenkle, Northwestern for-
ward who is in ninth place in the
scoring, has made all of his 22 points
on field goals.
Should Jewell Young keep up the
pace he is going it seems quite prob-
able that he will break the 1936
record of his teammate Bob Kessler
of 161 points and Joe Rief, former
Northwestern ace's record of 167.

A S small boys, many fathers now living knew the
telephone only as a little used curiosity. It grew
into today's constantly used necessity largely because
the Bell System never ceased looking for the new and
better way. It stayed young in its thinking.
Young ideas developed "conference service", ena-
bliitg several nearby or widely separated persons to
talk on one telephone connection. Young ideas steadily
made long distance service better, quicker, yet cheaper.
Young ideas are at work day and night to make
sure America continues to get more and better service
