SUNDAY, JAN. 3I, 1937

A Significant Statement...
PROF. RALPH W. AIGLER, chairman of the Board in Control of Athletics,
is quoted in a recent alumni publication to the effect that in the future
it is hoped to be able to make the University's athletic system entirely inde-
pendent of the revenue of intercollegiate competition . . . To Bill Pollard,
who calls me to task for spelling "Negro" with a lower-case "n" in Friday's
column, I say that it was an unfortunate mistake . .. The Daily's style book
calls for upper case, and I am sure my copy was marked thusly . . . An error
of the proofreader . . . Ossie Solem, ex-Iowa coach, will use the Minnesota
system at Syracuse next fall . . . From what I have seen of Syracuse, I think
.it is a good idea.
What did I say would be the outcome of the Louis-Pastor fight? .
Babe Hosler has replaced the huge Fred Fechtman as center on the Indiana
basketball team ... Fechtman is graduating this month. . . Johnny Speicher,
Varsity 118-pound wrestler, gave Earl Thomas, who reached the final Olym-
pic tryouts at 135 pounds, more than a run for his money in an impromptu
bout in practice the other night . .. Thomas is still being bothered by his
bad leg somewhat . . . The Stoller-Grieve "fastest white" issue that I took
up from the Daily Illini gets more mention from Sports Editor Dave Hoff ...
Yes, Dave, the only way to settle it is to wait for the Conference meets.
Little Aggie What Now???
MICHIGAN STATE'S BASKETBALL has hit a new low . . . The Spartans
were trimmed by little Hope Friday night . . . Indiana's wrestlers meet
Lehigh next Saturday . . . A chance for indirect comparison with Coach
Cliff Keen's varsity, which suffered its only defeat of the year at the
hands of the strong Eastern outfit . . . The Hoosiers are offering the vet-
eran Johnny Tatum against Michigan's Capt. Frank Bissell at 155 pounds
. . . Tatum was undefeated in Big Ten dual competition at 165 and 175
pounds last year . . . A fine battle should result when the two clash in a
dual meet here March 1 . . . Lynn Waldorf, Northwestern football coach, says
the Gophers of Minnesota are a cinch for an undefeated season next fall.
The Michigan Tech-Minnesota hockey game Friday night which was won
by the Big Ten champions, 2 to 1, was full of fireworks . . . The Miners pro-
tested loud and long over a puck that went past their Goalie Maki in some
mysterious fashion . . . Collier's is giving the lowdown on Indiana's basket-
ball madness this week . . . Six prominent New York Yankees are on the
holdout list . . . The dissatisfied include the complete outfield of DiMaggio,
Selkirk and Powell; big Lou Gehrig, and pitchers Johnny Murphy and Vito
Tamulis .. . Indiana's Tommy Deckard and Don Lash flew to New York
for the Millrose games last night after competing in Bloomington againstt
Notre Dame Friday night.

Tech Divides
Hockey Series
With Minnesota
Miners Outscore Gophers
1-0 In Overtime; Lose
First Game 2-1
HOUGHTON, Jan. 30.--A)-Play-
ing their heavier opponents to a
standstill, the Michigan Tech hockey
team this afternoon defeated Univer-
sity of Minesota, 1-0, to even up their
two-game series which featured
Tech's annual Winter Carnival. Min-
nesota won the opener, 2-1.
An overtime period was needed to
decide today's battle, the winning
goal being scored after a minute's
play in the extra session, when be-
spectacled Joe Stack, Tech winger,
sneaked the puck past goalie Bud
Wilkinson for the only goal of the
Winning Shot Comes Quick
Hardly had referee Phil Peterson
dropped the disc to open the over-
time when the puck was picked up
by George McCarthy, fast skating
Tech center. He took it almost to the
Minnesota blue line before laying
down a neat pass to Stack, who
banked it past .Wilkinson. The net
minter's view was obstructed by a
mass of players' legs, and Stack's
shot skimmed along only two inches
above the ice.
The burly, hard charging Gophers
fought a hard game in an effort to
beat goalie Ed Maki, but the Tech net
guardian turned aside a total of 33
shots. Using three complete for-
ward lines, the Minnesotans dis-
played some nice teamwork, but
Tech's defense was strong enough to
turn back all threats. The return of
Mullen, after an illness, gave Tech
an experienced defense man.
Meet At Minneapolis
Tech and Minnesota renew their
series in two games at Minneapolis
next week-end.
Joe Stringer, scout of the Chicago
Blackhawks, witessed today's game.
The Hawks recently announced a
plan to rely on American-born hockey
talent within two years. Stringer
will attend games of the Northern
Michigan Hockey League here Sun-
day and at Calumet Thursday.

Grapplers' Face An Action-Packed Second Semester


Michigan's Varsity wrestlers face
a second semester with plenty of
activity in store for them, and if thel
Goys hit their finals with as much
gusto as they have been hitting their
opponents on the' mat, they will bel
in good shape for the wars to come.
Not wasting any time, the matmen
depart Saturday, Feb. 12 for Evans-

Wildcats have met with fair success

in the Conference this year, but the
Varsity is heavily favored to emerge
On Feb. 20, Ohio State's matmen
will invade the Wolverine camp, and
the Varsity should take the Buckeyes
without too much trouble. On March
1, Indiana will provide the Varsity
with their first real competition, since
the Lehigh meet and the true mettle
of the matmen will be well tested
against the "Fightin' Hoosiers," al-
ways a very tough outfit.

Gehrig Announces
2,500 Consecutive
Games As His Goal
NEW YORK, Jan. 30.--W)-Lou
Gehrig threw a party today for base-
ball writers, not to reveal any par-'
titular developments in his current
contract differences with the Yankees
but to disclose his ambition to stretch
his "Iron Man" playing record to 2,-
500 consecutive games.
Already holder of the all-time rec-
ord of an unbroken string of 1,808
games, covering a dozen seasons,
Gehrig's announced goal means that,
to achieve it, he must play four and
a half more years without missing a
ball game.
Lou Is Optimistic
"Maybe I'm optimistic," grinned
Lou, as the boys pinned him down to
facts and figures, "but I'm only 33
now and I don't see why I can't aim
at 2,500 games in a row and leave 'em
something to remember me by.
"I may need the breaks to do it,
but so far as I'm concerned, there's
no special strain to playing every day.
I'd rather be in the game so long as
I'm not doing the club or my healthl
any harm."
Thereby, in effect, Gehrig gaveI
emphasis to his rebuttal to Babe
Ruth's suggestion it would take the
strain off Lou and lengthen his base-
ball playing career fi he broke his
consecutive-game string.
Wagner Greatest
Gehrig didn't take kindly to the
remarks, it seems, on top of that
when somebody changed the subject
to ask Gehrig who he rated the great-
est all-around player of all time, Lou
replied: "Honus Wagner-because he
was not only a wonderful shortstop,
but a great team man-the best I
ever saw.'

'Little Reaches
Semi-Finals In
Coast Tourney
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30.-( )-
Lawson Little, old time amateur
kingpin of two continents, found
himself in his element today and in
two crushing victories moved into
semifinals for the 72-hole $5,000
San Francisco match play open Golf
Enjoying only average success in
medal play since he turned profes-
sional, the booming hitter and chance
taking Little sent Jimmy Hines of
Garden City, N.Y., down 3 and 2 in
his second match after smearing
Orville White, Chicago, 5 and 4, in
the morning.
Igto the semifinals with Little
marched Horton Smith, Chicago,
Henry Picard, Hershey, Pa., and
Neil Christian, Yakima, Wash.
Smith, lanky stylist, had the
toughest of the second round assign-
ments. He nosed out Sam Parks, Jr.,
of Pittsburgh on the 19th after the
1935 National Open Champion had
held a 3 up lead with five holes to
play. A 12 foot putt drilled straight
into the cup won the extra hole and
the match for Smith.,
