Four amateur pugs bit the resinI
dust as the Golden Gloves wholesale
flailing continued last night at the
Armory before a packed house of
enthusiastic fight fans.
Thirty battlers threw their leath-
ered fists at each other in hopes that
they carried enough dynamite to
hoist them up the pugilistic ladder,
but 15 hapless youngsters left their
fistic careers behind in the ring.

University Boys Win
Two University mitt-slingers as-
with a deft display of fighting. Art
Downing, '38, a novice welterweight,
resumed where he left off Tuesday
night, when he flattened his oppon-
ent, by beating George Jackson, Ann
Arbor Negro, into submission with a
barrage of rights and lefts. Art won'
on a technical after little more than
a minute of the first round.
Mike Bowler, '38 Bus. Ad., entered
in the novice bantam division, waded
into his opponent, Edgar Higgerson,
of the Wayne CCC, with a flourish of
short, jerky jabs which had Higger-
son groggy before the first round
was spent. The short, semi-bald Bow-
ler never relented, despite his gory
nose in the third, earningta clean-cut
decision over his foe.
Gilkes Rated High
Henry Gilkes, Flint, and Walt
Cieslik, Detroit youngster who cop-
ped the flyweight title in the local
tourney last year, had the fans clam-
oring for a kill. Fighting in the open
bantam division, the two scrappers
squared off in a good old fashioned
Gilkes' furious in-fighting drove
Cieslik into the ropes several times,
and at the final bell, the Detroit pug,
with his eye badly swollen, was reel-
ing glassy-eyed about the- ring. Ref

Flint youth's ability to hammer hard

This Is Sam's Year . . .
THE 50-YARD DASH Sam Stoller will run in Boston between semesters,
should be right up the stocky senior's alley . . . Despite the presence
cf Marty Glickman of Syracuse and Herb Weist of Columbia . . . That is, if
the strangeness of a board track doesn't upset him . . . Sam is rated the
"fastest white" running in America today, and the shorter the race, the
better for Sam . .. His start is nothing short of phenomenal . . . He always
led Jesse Owens most of the way in the 100 . . . Sam and Jesse are co-holders
of the world record in the 60 at :6.1 ... And I don't think I'm far wrong in
saying that Sam is going out this season to prove that he and not Ralph
Metcalfe should have been named All-American at 60 yards . . . Metcalfe
hasn't done a thing at the event since 1933 . . . Nor has Stoller forgotten the
treatment he received at Berlin.
Speaking of All-American track teams, what right to the steeplechase
berth on the All-Collegiate squad does Tommy Deckard of Indiana have? ...
The record of Michigan's Walt Stone is easily better. . . Walt finished fourth
in the final Olympic trials behind McCluskey, Dawson and Manning . . . In
the same place behind the same three men in the National A.A.U. cham-
pionships . . . Walt won the Penn Relay event and the race in the
World Labor Meet . . . But politics and publicity do funny things . . . Co-ed
attendance at Varsity athletic events has been picking up immensely this
winter . . . Several sororities are attending en masse, I hear . . . Keep it up,
ladies . . . It's good for Michigan.
Regents O.K. Board's Action .. .
REGENT JUDGE MURFIN has told the Board of Governors of the
University of Michigan Club of Detroit that he and fellow members of
the Board of Regents are completely in accord with the football policies of
the Board in Control of Athletics . . . One of last week's issues of the
Michigan State News commented on the fact that Baseball Coach John
Kobs was to officiate in the Michigan-Ohio State basketball game . .. "The
Wolverines like the way John calls 'em," the piece says, "especially when the
foul is on the other team" . . . That has a funny twist to anyone who saw
last Saturday night's game . . . No comment is necessary.
Chuck Chuckovits, Toledo University sophomore, has made 169 points
in 11 games, including 69 free throws out of 80 attempts . . . Against Mich-
igan the fiery forward collected five field goals and nine free throws .
He has the knack of collecting personal fouls on his person . . . And of mak-
ing the officials believe he has been fouled . .. On the advice of the staff's
f 6ht expert, I am picking Joe Louis to knockout Bob Pastor very early in
their fight tomorrow night . . . Pastor is far from deserving of the reams
of publicity that has been dished out in his favor.

Wolverines came in well ahead of
State's Jack Massey.
Because Barnard swam with Co-
Captain Jack Kasley in the 200-yard
breast-stroke, he was unable to com-
pete in the 440-yard free-style dis-
tance. Baker Bryant, substituting
for Barnard gained first however,
with Bill Wreford, who tired in the
final stretch, getting but a third in
the event.
Barnard, ordinarily a distance
free-styler, followed Kasley home in1
the breast-stroke event. Kasley,
swimming with his usual ability,
swam strongly for the first 150 yards
and then slowed down to tease Bar-
nard into a second one second slower
than his time for the event. Kasley
was clocked at 2:43.4 which is not bad
time for the event considering that
he loafed for the last 50 yards.
In the 50-yard free-style swim,
Manley Osgood of the Varsity took
first, but Bob Mowerson was unable
to beat Al Ziegenfuss of State to the
finish line and placed third. The
finish was very close. In the other
sprint event, the 100 yards, Ed Kirar
tied the pool record of 53.2 seconds
held by Leonard Spence of Rutgers to
gain first place. Bob Emmett of the
Varsity took second. Bill Bell, who
last year garnered State's only first
place, was able to gain only a third.
Ben Grady, flashing the form that
he showed in the Big Ten national
meets last year scored 376.9 points to
take first in the diving events. Phil
Haughey of Michigan and Leighton
of State finished second and third

For Men Who Care

Kim Williams Returns
For Second Semester
In a letter filled with the joyous
hope of an exiled native recently par-
doned, Kim Williams, Varsity base-
ball captain and catcher, had advised
friends here of his definite return to
school next semester.
Williams has been convalescing
from a severe attack of ulcerated co-
litis, which kept him in bed for more
than six months. His weight dropped
from 180 to 115 pounds during the
Whether his condition will permit
active competition this season is ex-
tremely uncertain.
tween Ivan Day, local Negro, and
' William Joseph, squat Flint boy, the
fans were treated to another flourish
of damaging blows. Joseph ran out,
of his corner shooting a hard right,
but Day withstood the flurry for a
round, countering as often as he
could with a short right uppercut.
Joseph, anticipating a kayo, opened
E the second round with two murderous
rights which dented Day's chin and
laid him out as cold as a popsickle.
Humor entered the proceedings
when two brothers Al and Bill Rohde,
novice featherweights, clashed. The
crowd good-naturedly accepted their,
dancing act, and was amused no end
when Bill seemed more concerned
about a loosened tooth than the fight.
Everyone wanted Rhode to win, how-
ever. Al got the nod.
Cedric Sweet and Don Siegel, Mich-
igan gridders entered in the heavy-
weight division, meet each other in
the finals, which are slated for Feb. 3.

Phi Kappa Psi
Leads In I-M
Bowling Meet

The inter-fraternity bowling tour-
ney, sponsored by the Intramural De-
partment, is in full swing, with the
30 entries being cut down to 16 teams,
following qualifying play.
The 'sudden death' rule prevails,
and consequently no opportunities are
being provided to redeem oneself
after an off night. The favored 16
are seeded with the highest qualifiers
being placed in- the coveted positions.
However, bowling being a sport which
often fails to run true to form, fre-
quent upsets are likely to occur in
the early rounds.
Phi Kappa Psi led the way into the
first round, spilling 2,412 pins, but
was closely followed by the Betas and
Psi Upsilon who lagged only 30 pins
behind. The matches will be re-
sumed with the opening of the sec-
ond semesterdwith some grudge
battles promised.
Joe Paulus and Ben Falk hit re-
markable tatals in the singles com-
petition, with 656 and 637 respec-
tively and are joint favorites to
reach the finals. Art Dittmer and
Bob George both are well above a 190
average indicating that the matches
will not be devoid of competition.
