Brilliant Ring Talent Features Larson's Frosl- Fight (



Complete Cara
Of Eight Bouts
Evenly Fought
Tom Root Drops Decision
To Postaway In Second
Round OfFight
Don Siegal Is Winner
Spector Turns In Finished
Performance, Defeating
Don Hollis at 150
Coach Vern Larson inaugurated his
Freshman Fight Show series yester-
day with eight hard fought, dynamite
packed bouts that kept the fans
jammed into the inadequate space
around Waterman Gym ring on tip-
toe and seats edge.
So evenly fought were the eight
three-round fights that not one man
hit the canvas in a clean-cut knock
In the number one boutsof the af-
ternoon Hank Postaway, stocky De-
troit middleweight eked out a de-
cision over Ann Arbor's shifty Tom
Victor In Two Rounds
Root carried the fight to Postaway
for a big part of the three rounds
and drew first blood as he hung a
right on the Detroiter's nose in the
second. But all of his gains were
made at the expense of bumping into
rights and left hands fired at him by
Postaway as Root repeatedly fell off
balance after one of his swarming
In the second stanza Root cut
loose a paricularly vicious right
which failed to connect, carrying
him half through the ropes. From
there he rebounded into a shattering
punch behind the ear which nearly
put him clear through the ropes for
good. Postaway followed up his ad-
vantage with another hard right to
the face and went on to win the
round and the bout, with the other
two rounds even due to Root's ag-
gressive tactics. Both men finished
Siegal Wins
Don' Siegal, Royal Oak, the only
sophomore on the card, won a de-
cision over his freshman heavyweight
opponent, Bob Thalner of Flint, by
the simple method of letting Thal-
ner try his luck at getting past his
long arms then punching him for
his efforts. Once or twice this sys-
tem almost proved the undoing of the
giant Siegal as Thalner uncorked
long rights which caught him on the
chin but failed to do much damage
due to the fact that they had started
so far from their destination.
Leonard Spector, 150 pounder from
Newark, N.J., turned in the after-
noon's most finished performance as
he stalked Don Hollis of South Lyon
about the ring, ducking and bobbing
as Hollis threw punch after punch
but failed to land a lone glove on
Spector's pokerface. Spector occa-
sionally sank his right wrist-deep in
Hollis' midriff and at the end of the
third after his arm was lifted climbed
through the ropes to continue his
Raskin Dislocates Shoulder
Herb Raskin, flashy little Detroiter,
fighting at 148 pounds, was doing a
workmanlike job of hammering Sam
Root from belt to hairline when mid-
way in the second frame he rolled to
the floor, doubled with pain and a
dislocated shoulder.
In the other bouts, all so close that
it took a better than average observ-
er to pick a winner, Jim Brown,
Peoria, Ill., nosed out Jim Scott,
Scotia, N.Y.; Jerry Baron, Far Rock-
away, N.Y., decisioned Jim French,

Hockey Six Leaves Today For Two Game Series W ith Tech


President Kipke Is Busy.. .it
COACH KIPKE is busier than the proverbial bee these days ... He's in the
midst of getting ready for the meeting of the rules committee of the
American Football Coaches Association to be held early next month at the
Hotel Statler in Detroit . . . As president of the national group Kip will be
in charge ... The meeting is to draw up recommendations to be given to the
Rules Committee of the National Collegiate A.A. which formulates the
rules of the college gridiron . . . Coach Kipke has written to over 400
coaches asking for their views, but does not expect that any important
changes will be recommended by the N.C.A.A. board . . . The committee
meeting in Detroit is composed of some 50 ccaches, including many of the
big names, and most of them have expressed their intention of attending.
Although his desk is piled high with applications, Coach Kipke says it
will be quite some time yet before he will be able to name the new head
line coach . . . In fairness to applicants who already hold positions, Kip is
not mentioning any names . . . He will say, however, that Ox Emerson, Sam
Knox and George Christensen of the Detroit Lions definitely are among
the men being considered . . . Until influenza floored him yesterday, it ap-
peared that Jim (Abe) Lincoln, Varsity right tackle, would replace Forrest
(Butch) Jordan for the second time this semester . . . Lincoln, who is the
injured Jordan's understudy on the wrestling team, first gained a Varsity
football berth last season when Butch was hurt in the Indiana game.
Illinois Loves Purdue.. .,
ILLINOIS' UPSET WIN over Purdue on the basketball court last Monday
night is having its repercussions . . . The Daily Illini, through Sports
Editor Dave Huff, had this to say: "Purdue's fans wound up a customary
Boilermaker night of bad sportsmanship, with all the accompanying booing
and hollering, by attacking guard Wib Henry and Coach Doug Mills after
the game before the two were able to get safely to their dressing room" . .
Henry, according to the Illinois paper, also was the victim of a blow on
the back of the neck delivered during the game by Jewell Young, leading
Conference scorer, while the two men were walking down the floor in a
friendly manner .. . Young had his arm around the Illini player at the time.
A local correspondent for a Detroit paper, still a bit new to the game,
tells the story of when he was really a cub reporter . . . It was during the
1934 World Series between the Cardinals and the Tigers . . . Our worthy
colleague was assigned to go to the games and watch the temporary stands
... When and if the stands collapsed, he was to run to the nearest phone
and call the city desk . . . Bob Cummins, Daily editorial shot and expert
on the horses, has it figured out that this "home floor advantage" theory is
the bunk . . . In 22 Big Ten basketball games played to date, he reports,
exactly half of them have been won by invading teams . . . When Michigan
wrestlers met Lehigh at Bethlehem last Friday, the matches were put on
before a capacity crowd that paid as high as $1.50 a seat . . . And 500 were
turned away.

Puck Squads
Renew Rivalry
For State Title
10-Man Squad Will Seek
Double Victory; Heyliger
Is, In Shape
Michigan's gallant band of puck
pushers will board the train at 9:45
this' morning with Houghton,
Mich. as their destination, and a
double victory over the northern Min-
ers as their ultimate aim.
This two game series in Houghton
will renew a rivalry that is fast be-
coming traditional in Michigan
hockey. A return two-game series
will bring the Miners to Ann Arbor
on February 19 and 20. To the win-
ner of the four game schedule goes
the mythical title of State Intercol-
legiate Champions.
Take Bill Chase
In addition to the nine men thai
faced Minnesota here last week-end
Coach Lowrey is taking Bill Chase
to fill the alternate goalie position.
The team is in fine shape, having
completely recovered from their post-
game exhaustion of the first part of
the week. The Gopher series took a
lot out of the small squad, and afte
a light limber-up drill on Monday
evening, a halt was called on prac
tices for the remainder of the week
Captain Vic Heyliger has beer
treated daily for the charley horse h
gathered in when he piled into th
goal posts at the height of last Fri
day's fracas, and last night, reported
that all was well with the injure
limb and that he was ready and an
xious to go.
Goalie Is Experienced
The Captain and cabin-keeper fo
Miners is one Ed Mackie, and a firs
rate goalie he is too, for a year agl
he was the holder of the title of All
Midwestern net minder. Bud Wilk
inson, who guarded the twine fo
Minnesota last week-end wa
Mackie's successor to the honor.
During the 1936 campaign, Tec
came out on the long end of th
count in three of the four contests
winning each by that narrowest o
margins-one goal. The lone Wol
verine victory was chalked up to th
tune of 6 to 3.

Varsity Five Gets Third Chance
To Avenge Defeats Of Gridders

For the third time this year the
Michigan basketball team will be out
to revenge a Michigan football defeat
when the Varsity cagers take the
floor against Ohio State Saturday
night at Yost Field House.
Not only will the Wolverines be
trying to boost themselves into sec-
ond place in the Conference stand-
ings but they also will be out for a
little of the Buckeye's hide and the
glory that State took from Michigan
on the gridiron in its last three-meet-
ings with the Varsity.
The cagers made good in their
other two attempts when they
drubbed Michigan State and then
outfought Northwestern in their first
Big Ten game in Ann Arbor.
Buckeyes Are Small
Ohio State comes to Ann Arbor
with a record of two wins and a single
defeat. They are in fourth place,
just one-half game behind the third-
place Wolverines.
The Buckeyes are one of the small-
est teams in the Conference, but it
is just this characteristic that may
prove their greatest advantage. Be-

fore the season began the whole Big
Ten decided that Michigan was, or
rather should be, slow and that a fast
break would beat Coach Cappy Cap-
pon's "giants."
Suckers For Speed?
Purdue used its fast breaking of-
fense with fair success. Northwes-
tern got no place with it and Wis-
consin didn't have such an attack.
Chicago did not attempt any such
offense so the contention that the
Varsity is a sucker for a fast break
still has to be proved.
If it can be done, Ohio State is
the team to do. Jack Raudebaugh,
Capt. Tippy Dye, and little Dick Bak-
er have all the speed and drive in
the world and Earl Thomas, the Buck
center, certainly won't hold O.S.U.
back. Last year Thomas, who is
Ohio's tallest man at six feet three
incheswas all-Conference second
team center.
Baker Outstanding
Baker, sophomore forward from
Anderson, Ind., has been State's out-
standing competitor so far this year.
He practically won his first Big Ten
game single-handed at Wisconsin
when he enteredthekgamehnear the
end with the Bucks behind and
dropped six consecutive points to give
his teammates their first Conference
victory after an impressive tour
through the Far West and a nine-
point win over N.Y.U. in Madison
Square Gardens.
At Bloomington last Monday night
Baker led his team with eight points
as the Fightin' Hoosiers dropped Ohio
State, 43 to 36.
Manny Slavin, reserve forward,
who suffered a severe knee injury
after his return from Seattle, Wash.,
will not be in condition to play against
either the Buckeyes or Chicago Mon-
day night. Trainer Ray Roberts,
however, expressed confidence that
Slavin would be ready for the second
semester drive.

aMatmen Meet
y Ohio; Lincoln
nOut With Flu
- Three new faces may appear in the
d Varsity lineup Saturday, when Coach
d Cliff Keen's matmen face Ohio
- University at 3 p.m. in the Yost Field
The injury jinx, which seems to be
r dogging the trail of the grapplers
t this year, is responsible for the pos-
o sible changes. Forrest Jordan, sopho-
- more heavyweight, is definitely out of
- the Bobcat fracas. Big Butch pulled
r a tendon in his leg in the Lehigh
s meet last weekend, and it is a matter
of conjecture as to when he will be
h 1 able to wrestle again.
,e It is highly improbable that 1751
s, pounder Frank Morgan will climb
f through the ropes against the Ohio-
- ans. In this case his berth at that
e weight will be filled by Dick Pasch.
The heavyweight situation is still
a question mark to Keen. The best
bet to fill the gap left by Butch Jor-
dan seems to be Lillburn Ochs with
Stan Schumann and Tim Hurd as
other possible choices. Jim Lincoln,
despite previous reports, will not

Mobilization Of Army
Crip ples Hope Quintet
HOLLAND, Jan. 20.-(/P)-Sending
the National Guard to preserve order
at Flint came near to crippling the
Hope College basketball team.
Bob Marcus, the star guard of the
Hope quintet, is a member of the
Guard, and when the troops were
called, he went along.
Coach Hinga obtained for him a
24-hour leave Monday so that he
might participate in the victory over
Albion. Now, Hope is faced with the
strong Kalamazoo College team in an
M.I.A.A. battle Friday night, and the
question of whether Marcus will re-
join his team remains unanswered.

'Pay Faculty More


If Necessary, But,
Get Dana X. Bible'
AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 20.-(P)-In-
stead of paying the football coach
less, pay the professors more, the
chairman of the University of Texas
Regents suggested today as a way
to remove a reported objection to hir-
ing Nebraska's Dana X. Bible here.
Bible and Texas officials were in a
closed conference tonight, while re-
ports persisted that salary was one
of the main points under discussion.
One story was that Bible asked
$15,000 to $25,000 for himself and
staff and a five-year contract. Vhe
University president receives $8,000
and the best-paid professor $5,000.
"We should pay $25,000 to the
president of a great institution like
the University of Texas," said H. J.
Lutcher Stark, chairman of the Re-
gents and millionaire "godfather"
to T. U. athletics.
"The top professorial salary should
be $10,000, and other salaries of fac-
ulty members should be raised and
graduated in proportion.''
Dr. H. Y. Benedict, president of the
University, has expressed opposition
to paying the coach more than any
faculty member.
