As Threat To Possible
Title Chances
Indiana Comes Back1
With the fateful night of Jan. 18
a thing of the past it's harder than
ever before to figure out the Big Ten
basketball race.
Illinois, victim of Northwestern in
its opening game has finally stopped
Purdue. Behind 23 to 11 at the half
Doug Mill's erratic Illini came from
behind to knock the Boilermakers
out of undisputed leadership of the
Conference and put themselves into
a tie for first place with four wins and
one loss.
Ilini Feature Boudreau
Great things were predicted for the
season with Louis Boudreau, sensa-
season with Louis Boudeau, sensa-
tional sophomore,
the reason. Start-
ing out slowly
Boudreau hasdonly1
recently found his
stride serving
warning on the
mid-west a week
ago when Illinois
beat Indiana and
making good again
against P u rdu e
with 1points.
Michigan, for a
long time ignored
BOUDREAU in the pre-season'
1iniois tabulations, h a s
taken advantage of a weak first se-
mester schedule and is only one-half
game behind the Illini and the be-
wildered Boilermakers with three vic-
tories and one defeat.
Despite the efforts of Chicago's
doormats who forced the Wolverines
into an overtime before they would
take the Maroons seriously enough to
go to work, Michigan should go into
the Conference lead with Illinois next
week-end as six of the teams call off
hostilities for final examinations.
Ohio Is Next
The Wolverines meet Ohio State's
midget quintet Saturday night while
Illinois takes on Chicago in the only
other game. Monday the Maroons
will travel to Ann Arbor to face
Michigan a second time. If the Var-
sity wins both of its encounters and
the Illini come out as is expected
against Chicago, the two teams will'
be tied with five and one to pull
ahead of Purdue.
Minnesota's surprising five, out-
standing defensive team in the Con-
ferenee, will resume activities Feb.
6 when the Gophers will try to re-
venge their only beating at the hands
of Ohio State's Buckeyes. Monday
night the Minnesota team gave
Northwestern its third beating while
Ohio State suffered its first defeat,
losing to a disgusted Indiana five.
Hoosiers Drop Two
Indiana, co-champions last year
and favorites to repeat, has lost two
games, one to the Illini and another
to the Boilermak-
ers. Although tem-
porarily out of the
race, the Hoosiers
made their mark
when they set the
Buckeyes back on
their heels for the
O.S.U. team was all '
set to take the lead

from Purdue.
Most surprising}
angle of the I.U.-
O.S.U. meeting was
the disappointing
performance o f GUNNING
Ken Gunning, who Indiana
had been Jewell Young's com-
petitor for the individual scoring title.
The Indiana forward hit only one
point before he went on personals.
If the week-end hadn't been lit-
tered up with such important upsets
the Wisconsin victory over Iowa
would have been the feature. The
Badgers didn't look strong enough to
beat rugs against Michigan Saturday
night yet they came back Monday to
crack down on an ailing Hawkeye
five that has suffered the hardships
of a killing schedule and now rests
in an undeserved tie for eighth place.
A comparison of scores is probably
one of the greatest wastes of time
this year that has ever been hit upon.
For instance Wisconsin has beaten
Iowa. Iowa dropped Northwestern,
Northwestern gave Illinois a trounc-
ing, the Illini laced into Purdue and
around it goes.

Mat Captain In Form

Captain Frank Bissell, senior
155-pounder, is the leader of Mich-
igan's mat forces this year and
has bcen exhibiting brilliant form
in his matches thus far. Against
Lehigh, Frank scored a sensation-
al win over Tommy King, Olympic
finalist last year, in a match that
had the spectators on edge
throughout. It required two over-
time periods for Frank to eke out
a victory over his favored oppon-
ent, but he won finally by a fall
after a nip and tuck bout.
High Scoring Race
Slightly Affected
By BigTen Upsets
The upsets that featured Monday
night's games in the Cgnference
schedule did little damage to the
ranks of the first 10 high scorers.
With the exception of the addition of
Jake Townsend to the list it is vir-
tually the same as it was a week ago.
Purdue's scoring ace, Jewell
Young, continued to head the list in
spite of his team's upset at the hands
of the Illini. He accounted for 10
points against Indiana Saturday
night and made 14 more on Monday.
Jake Townsend took the cellar
position in the high scoring ranks
Saturday and then moved up to his
present position after the Wolver-
ine-Maroon tilt. In point averages,
however, he is in fourth place, hav-
ing played.in one less game than the

Bob Kiputh Again . ..
MATT MANN isn't going to like my harping on it any too well, because
he became passive toward the whole thing some few years ago, but E
being a swimming reporter originally, I can't help saying a few things aboutt
Bob Kiputh's latest move . . . Bob is swimming coach at Yate, you know,
and coach of the American Olympic swimming team . . . Bob and Mattt
nave been carrying on a sort of a, feud for almost a decade . . . Yale beatA
Michigan in a dual meet in 1928 and has evaded the Wolverines and Matt
ever since . . . The reason is obvious . . . Since then Michigan has becomet
the country's best swimming team . . . Yale cleans up everything in the East7
and lays claim to the title of the nation's best . : . What excuse Kiputh uses
when Matt's boys literally and figuratively swamp Yale in winning the
National Collegiates almost every year, I don't know . . . But even the
Eastern scribes have some method of figuring the Eli to be the best in the
Kiputh's recent announcement that the National A.A.U. championships,
awarded to Yale will be held between the Big Ten and National Collegiate
meets which will take place in Indiana's and Minnesota's pools respectively
is a master stroke . . . Obviously Michigan and Iowa and the other Confer-
ence teams cannot go East to the A.A.U. meet in the short space of one in-
tervening week-end . . . Yale will win the meet and crown itself a more
worthy national champion than Michigan who will again successfully defend
its intercollegiate title . . . And Grantland Rice will write his annual piece
telling how great a man Kiputh is . . . Oh well, maybe some day the Middle
West will run out of good swimmers who come to Michigan because swim-
ming here is fun . . . And maybe, by that time Yale's "farm" system of
I prep schools will be as elaborate as the St. Louis Cardinal chain . . . Then
Kiputh will ask to meet Michigan again . . . Of course Yale won't come all
the way to Minnesota to take a beating in the Collegiates this winter.
A Game For The Skinny???
I BACK IN GRADE-SCHOOL DAYS we used to think basketball was a
game for long, skinny kids . . . One look at the weight chart of Coach
Cappon's five obviously disproves that old theory . . . Capt. Johnny Gee and
Jake Townsend weigh 217 and 202 pounds respectively . . . Matt Patanelli
manages to plug along at a steady 199, while Danny Smick is a mere light-
weight at 193 . . . Little Herm Fishman is quick as a cat, but he weighs
only 185 . . . Michigan State looked greatly improved in beating Ken-
tucky Thursday night , . . The Spartans will be laying for Michigan in no
small way in the second game of the season between the two teams between
semesters at Demonstration Hall in East Lansing . . . The place will be
packed and the crowd will be screaming for the blood of the much-hated
Wolverine .'. . I could write a treatise on "How East Lansing's Blood Boils
When Michigan Comes to Town". . . You see, I come from there originally . .
. . And I'll never forget the yells of the crowd when State's swimming team
won its first race from the Wolverines in ten years last winter.
Ken Doherty tells me, with his usual reserve, that his freshman track
team this year is another outfit with a lot of possibilities ... That is, if he can
continue to impress his charges that staying eligible is a very important
part of competition on Michigan teams . . . It seems that good swimming
and good track teams will always be a part of the Michigan athletic system
. ... Remember Gene Desautels, the young catcher who came to the Detroit
Tigers after his graduation from Holy Cross in 1930 . . . He's coming back
to the majors to help Rick Ferrell of the Red Sox this spring . . . It wouldn't
surprise me one bit if Michigan's nine defended its Conference title this
spring . . . Ray Fisher has a way with baseball players . . . It is interesting
to watch the Detroit Times and the Detroit Free Press play their amateur
boxing tournaments above any and all sporting news . . . Keith Crossman
i and Emmie Reid, Coach Eddie Lowrey's first outstanding scoring combina-
tion, are still making great plays for the Holzbaugh-Ford six of Detroit, the
middle-west's leading amateur hockey team.

It was a fine meet, and I am veryc
well pleased with the showing the
boys made. The team looks red hot,,
and when we get the whole squad
eligible for competition, we're going j
to have a great outfit." These were1
the words Matt Mann ventured yes-
terday when asked to comment on
Saturday's meeting with the Hoosiers.
After the overwhelming 64-20 vic-
tory over Indiana, the tankers were
in a very jubilant state of mind.
"We're just having a good time to-
day," said Mann as he watched -his
charges cavort in the pool.
Tankers Clown
The boys were mixing business with
pleasure during yesterday's practice
drill. The free-stylers were splash-
ing through time trials, trying to see
how close they could come to the time
Mann set for them. Fred Cody, the
biggest clown on the squad, floated
in the center of the pool trying to
thumb a ride with the passing sprint-
ers, but met with no luck as none of
he swimmers seemed to be far
!nough ahead of their schedule to
warrant taking on an extra load,
Co-captain Frank Barnard scowled
as he watched one of the short dis-
tance swimmers clipping off a fast 50
yards. "Say," he said, "I work twice
as hardfas that guy, but look how
much faster he goes." Barnard,
however, finds his specialty in the
long distance events as he proved
Saturday and will continue to prove
throughout the season. He swims
both the 220 and 440 yard distances.
Cody Steals Spotlight
Cody again stole the spotlight when
he suddenly announced that he was
going to "butterfly" the length of
the pool. His performance was in-
tended to copy the famous style de-
veloped by breast-stroker Jack Kas-
ley. It was quite a burlesque and it
is unfortunate that Jack couldn't
have been present to retaliate
Cody found out, however, that one
length was all he cared to try, and
decided that he had better stick to
back-stroking. His imitation of El-
eanor Holm Jarrett turned out to be

more successful and he drew a round
of applause and laughter from the
assembled tankers.
Team Is Confident
Matt Mann and his crew were con-
fident of making- the showing that
they did Saturday and expected to
have a successful season but not un-
til the tankers were put through their
paces under competition was the fact
established sufficiently to allow the
boys to cut loose.
The next meet on the schedule is
on Jan. 27 when Michigan State's
Spartans come to Ann Arbor to clash
with the National champions.
