Have Good Record For



Titles Taken
By Swimmers
During Season
Track Squad Holds Indoor
Crown ;Mamen, Cagers
Mae Good Showings
Despite a rather disastrous foot-
ball season, Michigan can boast of
a very successful athletic year. Wol-
verine teams have met with success
in state, conference and intersec-
tional contests.
So far this year Varsity teams have
chalked up one National and three
Big Ten championships as well as
gaining a second and a third against
Conference competition.
Fall To Spartans
The football team with a number
of "promising sophomore" received
its first major setback when the
Spartans of Michigan State had a
field day at the expense of the Wol-
verires. Then followed stinging de-
feats by Indiana and Minnesota, the
Gopher game being lost by a 26-0
The squad seemed to be on the
up-swing a week later, as they hum-
bled the Columbia Lions by a 13-0
score. The following week the Illini
came to town and in spite of the fact
that the Wolverines outgained them
by 170 yards, the Zuppkemen came
out on the long end of a 9-6 total.
The remainder of the season re-
sulted in two more losses for the
wearers of the blue and gold. By
dropping a 27-7 game to the Quakers
from Pennsylvania, the Wolverines
lost the hold on Eastern teams that
they had had for year in intersec-
tional competition. In the final tilt
of the season, Michigan looked bet-
ter than any other game of the sea-
son, although going down to a 9-0
defeat at the hands of the powerful
Northwestern eleven.
Cagers To Coast
The Varsity cagers with John Gee
at the helm and "Jake" Townsend,
Michigan's only all-Conference play-
er pacing the squad, took to the road
during the Christmas vacation. After
splitting two games with the powerful
Michigan got off to a bad start
against Big Ten competition when
they dropped the opener to the Boil-
ermakers from Purdue by a 37-26
The season's highlights came when
Cappon's men broke loose before
9,000 howling fans Feb. 23 at Yost
Field House and completely sub-
merged the Purdue quintet 31-16.
With the season fast drawing to a
close and with Michigan a favorite
to finish at least in a tie for first
place in the conference standings,
the Wolverines tackled the strong
Indiana team whom they had de-
feated previously by a 55-31 score.
It was a different story this time. On
March 1 the Indians blasted Michi-
gan from the title race by squeezing
out a 31-27 win..
So, with Minnesota and' Illinois
deadlocked for the first place posi-
tion in the Western Conference,
Michigan had to be contented with
the next best third place.
Pucksters Take Crown
Coach Eddie Lowrey's little band
of pucksters again proved to the
sports world that it isn't necessary
to have a large squad to have a first
rate hockey club. The little squad
that never had more than a few
replacements on the sidelines fought
its way through all kinds of compe-
tition to a very successfull season,
winning the mythical state title and
tying for the Big Ten crown with
After dropping the opener with

Brantford A.C., the Varsity went on
to defeat Western Ontario and Sar-
Then came the first series with
Minnesota. Led by Vic Heyliger, the
Michigan sextet banged home eight
goals paststhe surprisedhWilkinson
to win 8-1.
In the second series with the Go-
phers played at Minneapolis, the'
Minnesota team again took the open-
er 3-1, but fell before a powerful
Michigan attack on the next day
losing by a 3-2 score and splitting
the conference title with the Wolver-
ines. The Varsity ended the season

Top U.S. Tank Coach

Matt Mann through his excel-
lc:-,t coaching has brought more
title3 to the University than any
other man. The most recent ac-
quisitions of his swimming team
includes the Big Ten and National
Collegiate titles.
What Happens
To Michigan 's
Great Athletes
One of the questions in everyone's
minds is what becomes of a great
athlete. From this question springs
many queries such as do they follow
their sport as a vocation and how
successful are they. The following is
a collection of Michigan's greatest
athletes and what they are now do-
It is very fitting that the nine-
letter men, people who were versatile
enough to win letters in three sports
for three consecutive years, should be
considered first. Two of them, Harry
Kipke and Benny Oosterbaan have
stayed at Michigan in coaching ca-
Russ Oliver, the most recent nine
letter man is coaching at Culver,
while Norm Daniels, who will be re-'
membered for his splendid basketball
playing is connected with the Wes-
leyan University Athletic Department.
Heston And Schultz
Next on our list come some of the
All-Americans, and heading these is
Willie Heston who was the forerunner
of them all. Both his sons, Willie and
Jack played football for Michigan. He
is now in the real estate business in
Detroit. Germany Schultz, who was
the first of Michigan's great centers,
is selling insurance in the same city.-
Skipping a number of years, we
come to Ernie Vick, another center,
who is with the Libby-Owens-Ford
Glass Company in Detroit. The grid-
iron claims him now and then, for
occasionally he officiates at football
Benny Friedman, famous for his
passing, and considered by experts to
be the greatest quarterback football
has ever known, has turned his ability
to money. He played pro football
for several years and is now coach
at New York University. Another
great quarterback, 'Harry Newman,
found the call of the gridiron too
strong to resist, and is playing pro
football for the New York Giants.
Charles Bernard, the latest of the
centers, has severed his connection
with the sport, and works for the
Ford Motor Company in Dearborn.
In The Majors
Two of Michigan's baseball play-
ers have achieved great recognition
after leaving school. The name of
George Sisler is as familiar to the
big leagues as it is here. He is now
retired from the active game and
owns a string of sporting goods stores
in St. Louis. Pete Appleton is al-
ways a potential menace to the De-
troit Tigers for he is. a pitcher for
the Cleveland Indians.
Two of the negro track stars will
never be forgotten, Eddie Tolan, at
one time the fastest human being
in the world, and Willis Ward, who
was as versatile as he was good. To-
lan's pinnacle of fame was reached
in the 1932 Olympics when he won
two titles. He now is working in the
State Capitol in Lansing. Ward is
studying to be a lawyer and working
at the same time.
