Dual Season
Purdue Not Enterec
Tickets for the Big Ten wrestlin
meet, to be held here Friday an
Saturday, March 12 and 13 will b
put on sale this morning at the Ad
ministration Building and at th
Michigan Union desk, Coach Wall
Weber, director of publicity for th
meet, announced yesterday.
The admission charge will be 4
cents for Friday evening and Satur
day afternoon and 75 cents for th
finals on Saturday night.
There will be wrestling on two mat
throughout the entire meeting, witl
final bouts holding sway on one ma
and consolation matches on the othe
during the final evening.
Purdue Has No Team
Nine of the 10 Conference school
will send representative grapplers
Purdue standing alone in the Confer
ence without a wrestling team. Fou
schools are seriously considered a
contenders for the crown: Michigan
Indiana,, Illinois and Minnesota.
Michigan's season has been unus
ually successful. Only one defea
mars an otherwise perfect record
that being a 23-13 beating at the
hands of the Lehigh matmen, the
East's most powerful mat aggrega
tion.
Has Beaten Strong Teams
Outstanding on the grappler's led
ger for the year were victories ove:
the New York Athletic Club, a start
ling upset in itself, an easy win ove
a favored Franklin and Marshal
team, trouncings to Ohio State an
Northwestern, a one point verdict
over a highly touted Indiana squad
and a shut out administered- to Mich-
igan State.
As to personnel, it has been the
Triumphant Trio, Capt. Frank Bis-
sell, Harland Danner ,the amazing
sophomore,.,and Johnny Speicher, al
undefeated to date, that has carried
the matmen to the fore. The come-
back of Earl Thomas, after an early
injury, and the development of Har-
old Nichols, who became eligible in
February, have helped no end.
Cameron Is Out Of Shape
Paul Cameron, who reached the
finals in last year's Big Ten get-to-
gether ,has not been at peak all sea-
son due to poor health. Cammy at
his best would be a favorite in the
126-pound division; in his present
shape he is, at best, a question mark.
Butch Jordan, considered by Keen
as one of the top heavies in the loop,
will be beck in the saddle this week-
end. The effects of his layoff, due
to a knee injury incurred at Lehigh,
may prevent him from being a se-
rious contender, however.

g RANKLY, I was more than a littl
d F surprised Friday night when1
e found on my desk a wire from Loui
1 J. Giffels to the effect that Sonj
y Henie would skate at the Olympia i
e Detroit March 16-20 . . . Less than
week previous there appeared in th
0 Detroit papers a story in which th
manager of "The Ice Follies of 1937'
e spoke not pleasantly of Miss Henie a
a professional trouper . . . The Nor
s wegian star left the "Follies" in Chi-
h cago just before the company en
t trained for Detroit ... Apparently no
r under the best of auspices . . . An
now Mr. Giffels has by some manne
or means lured Miss Henie into De-
troit after all . . . I don't know any-
s thing about the feud that kept th
, ex-Olympic champion away from
- Olympia two weeks ago ... All I know
r is that she can skate like nobodyels
s can...
A Good Idea.,..
t RAINER RAY ROBERTS and
1, 1 Daily basketball expert Ray
e Goodman have come to the conclu-
e sion that the present system of de-
- termining the Big Ten cage cham-
pion on games won and lost alone is
a mistake .. . Accordingly they've de-
- vised a new method which would take
r into consideration, in equal measures,
- the offensive record of each team, the
r defensive record, and the number of
I wins and defeats . . . They do this
d by adding together a team's defen-
t sive, offensive, and game standing
in this manner . . . Minnesota was
- first defensively (1 point), fifth of-
fensively (5 points), and first in
games won (1 point) for a total of
- seven points . . . By this system Illi-
nois would have eight debits, Michi-
I gan nine, Purdue 12, Northwestern
I and Ohio State 17, Indiana 19, Iowa
- 23, Wisconsin 25, and Chicago 26 ...
The only changes that this would
- make in the present standings is
that Illinois and Minnesota would
not tie for the title, but the latter
win it alone . . . And Northwestern
would be raised to what we think is
its deserved position ... It seems like
a good plan and would fit in espe-
cially well with a change in the
present method of making the Big
Ten basketball schedules.
Bennie, And Big John ...
ASSISTANT COACH BENNIE
OOSTERBAAN delved into the
furniture industry of Grand Rapids
for one of many puns that featured
his performance at the daily session
in the coaches' office yesterday
morning . . . The discussion turned
to the coming Big Ten wrestling meet
and Bennie chimed in with: "Bissell
.Will sweep the mat" . . . Incidentally
you'll probably notice that the (P)
All-Conference basketball team is
not in accordance with The Daily's
. . . In fact Johnny Gee, who was on
our first team, is relegated to hon-
orable mention, and we object stren-
uously . . . Three things seem most
important in determining a man's
qualification to the honor team
First, he must have offensive ability;
second, defensive ability; and third,
he should, if he is a center, be able
to control the ball at the tip and off
the backboards; for to score a team
must have the ball . . . With a few
possible exceptions it is the center's
duty to obtain the ball . . . Johnny
Gee certainly filled these require-
ments better than any other man in
the Conference, Jake Townsend ex-
cepted; and so well it seems to us
that he deserves All-Big Ten honors
along with Jake . . . Gee's trouble is
that he doesn't look pretty, in fact
he definitely looks awkward ... The
coaches can't forget those passes
that he invariably drops and the
loose balls that he always allows to
get away from him . . . The coaches
don't seem to believe that his scoring
and his ability to control the ball
are important enough to forget his

shortcomings, which seem to us rath-
er unimportant ... . You see, height,
while a great advantage, isn't all it's
cracked up to be.

Teammates Choose
Jake To Lead Cage
Squad Next Season
Jake Townsend, probably the out-
standing player in Michigan basket-'
ball history, was named captain of
the 1937-38 cage team Sunday, just
prior to his selection, for the second
consecutive year, as center on the
Associated Press All-Big Ten team.
Townsend, who succeeds Johnny
Gee, came to Michigan from Indian-
e apolis, where he established a reputa-
I tion as one of the finest ball-handlers
and passers ever seen in a state of
fine passers and ball-handlers.
a In his two years of competition as
n a Wolverine, the new Varsity captain
a has been an important factor in the
e renaissance of Michigan basketball
e prestige building up a record of out-
standing defensive and offensive ac-
s complishment, placing sixth in the
-Big Ten individual scoring last year
- with 106 points and third this year
with 121.
t Jack Thom, '38, was named senior
d basketball manager to replace Hubert
r Bristol with Bob Bradley as alternate.
- Robert Lindgren, Ed McCall, Max
- Schetz and Julian Kilman were
e named junior managers.

In Time Trials
The freshman trackmen finished a
series of time trials Saturday in Yost
Field House in preparation for the
- forthcoming telegraphic meet to be
held with the yearlings of the Univer-
sity of Iowa. A number of good times
were turned in and four records were
broken during the afternoon's com-
petition.
In the 65-yard high hurdle event
Stan Kelley legged it over the ob-
stacles to breast the tape in 8.4 sec-
onds to set a new frosh record. He
was followed closely by Sherm Olm-
stead and John Kutsche who were
.4 and .5 seconds behind him respec-I
tively.
Tom Jester crossed the line in 1:59
in the 880-yard run with Francis
Hogan just .7 seconds behind him,
both under the old freshman mark.
s Ralph Schwartzkopf sped over the
cinders to set two new records. In
the one mile event he lowered the
frosh record of 4:22.3 to lead Harry
Wisner across the finish line.
Schwartzkopf set another standard
in the two-mile event in 9:42.3.
Brooks Burderus coursed the 60-
yard distance in 6.6 seconds. Stan
Kelley won the 440-yard run in 52.8
seconds and also took first in the 65-
yard low hurdles with a time of 7.6 .

Coaches Award Michigan
Star Center Position In
A.P. Poll
Gee Is Also Honored
Conferences basketball coaches
packed away their rule books, called
in equipment, and ended the 1936-37
hardwood season in orthodox fashion
this week-end by furnishing the As-
sociated Press with their selections
for the annual All-Conference team.
The coaches, for the second time in
as many years chose John Townsend
for the center position. Although he
regularly lines up at forward he was
given the pivot post over regular cen-
ters because of his amazing pivot
passing and ball-hawking as well as
his marksmanship.
John Gee, this year's center re-
ceived honorable mention at that
post.
Harry Combes, Illinois ace, moved
up from a second team position he
won last year to one of the first team
positions this season. Combes, a
junior, started at guard for the Suck-
ers and was switched to the forward
post by Coach Doug Mills, where he
lead the squad to a tie for the cham-
pionship with his fast, tricky play.
William "Tippy" Dye, Ohio State's
mainstay, a senior, also repeated last
year's victory by taking a guard po-
sition of the first squad. He narrow-
ly missed being in the ranks of the 10
high scorers.
Jewell Young, who was awarded
the other forward position this year,
moved up a notch. He ended the
1935-36 season by being placed on
the second team.
Martin Rolek, Minnesota captain,
and a senior was awarded the other
guard position.
I-M Hockey Teams
Enter Final Week
Phi Kappa Psi's hockey team will
square off with the Zeta Psi puck-
sters this Wednesday night on the
Coliseum ice in one of the feature
matches of the current intramural
puck tournament.
Eight teams have survived prelim-
inary competition to gain berths in
the quarter finals. The Alley Cats,
defending champs have done some
fancy sticking thus far this year and
are favored to keep the title which
they captured last year. The Couger
combination is expected to give the
Alley Cats the toughest competition.

Jewell Young is safely reposing in open house the great
first place, but that is not the main
thing at present since he was prac-
tically assured of the position from Cl0thes
the starting tip-off.
Most important to Wolverine fans
is the fact that Michigan garnered
two high places, Jake Townsend tak-
ing second and Johnny Gee captur-
ing sixth. This is one hundred per
cent better than last year when Jake
was the only varsity man to end up
with the leaders. Then he was sev-
enth with 108 points.
Many Repeaters Present
Other repeaters this year were Ken
Gunning, Indiana ace, who dropped
from third last season with 122 to
ninth this year, Mike McMichael,
Northwestern star, who climbed from
fourth to second, increasing his total
by eight, and, of course, Young, who
last year tallied a mere 109 points P7
to rank sixth.
One iteresting factor that un-
doubtedly helped the Wolverines was
Townsend's ability to hit the hoop
on charity tosses. He made 43 and
missed 18, making more free throws
than field goals, something no other
Conference leader did. This is a
percentage of .525 of all shots that
counted for points. The average of
all the ranking players in this re-
spect was only .364.
First Three Are Juniors
What the chances are of these
same men being back in the top po-
sitions next year is naturally im-
possible to say right now. But at
least any others not in this year are
going to have to step some next sea-
son if the ability of the present lead-
ers stand them in good stead. Johnny
Gee and Ken Gunning are the only
seniors, while the first three men,
Young, McMichael, and Townsend,
all three of whom were in top places
last year, have one more season left.

Big Bill.Is Determined'
To Crack Shot Record
Now that he has firmly established
himself as the greatest shot putter in
Michigan history, Bill Watson can
concentrate entirely on breaking rec-
ords.
When he broke 50 feet against Ohio
State in the second meet of the sea-
son he not only won first place but
also a gold watch that Coach Charles
B. Hoyt first offered several years
ago to the first Wolverine to heave
the heavy 'ball 50 feet. Friday night
after the Pittsburgh meet Watson re-
ceived his trophy.
This week-end he will be out to
perform 'a feat few sophomores ever
do, win an individual championship
in the Western Conference track and
field meet. And as he is the only
man in the Big Ten this winter to
break 50 feet, he's an odds-on fa-
vorite to dethrone Krezowski of
Minnesota Saturday night.
