Trackmen Finish Dual Season Today At Champaign




"u- By GEO. 3. ANDROS
Matt's Secret. . .
EIGHT National Collegiate Cham-
pionships in the past 11 years is
a very brief way of stating Matt
Mann's record as swimming coach at
Michigan. But what is Matt's for-
mula? Wherein lies his secret of suc-
cess? Ah, there you have me-and
everybody else who ever has tried
to answer that question. Charles
MacCaffree spent
:1the past year as
Matt's assistant,
on his own, in an
attempt to find
out before taking
the jump from a
*. developer of high
school champions
to a position in a
4 "swimming" col-
lege. "Mac" arose
at the annual
team banquet
JACK KASLEY last week and
confessed he was as much in the dark
as ever. "There's something there
-Matt has something-but what it
is, I do not know," was his report o
the year spent under hjs forme
coach. Others who have tr d to find
out have met with no mor success
"They accuse me of holding back,'
Matt will yell when someone brings
up the subject. "I have 'no formula.
no method, no prescribed system o
training. I do work the boys hard
but they don't complain. Every mar
is an individual with me, but usually
I don't know what sort of work he
will do that day until he reports fo
practice." That's all there is to it.
Matt inspires a great confidence ir
the men who work under him, he
works them hard, he gives them a
little word of advice here-anothei
there, his boys always have a good
time and they swim to be champion
.Eight National Collegiate Cham-
pionships in 11 years.
It Is Not So...
IT HAS BEEN SAID time and' agair
that Matt Mann's swimmers ar
champions before they come to Mich-
igan. I have stated figures to dis-
prove that argument and I will con
tinue- to state others. Jack Kasley
was just a kid with an over-developed
chest when his father first sent him
to vacation at Matt's summer camr
in Canada. He holds most of th
important world records in the
breast-stroke now. Taylor Drysdale
was doing 1:11 for 100 yards back-
stroke when he was a freshman. He
became three times National Colle-
giate champion before he left Mich-
igan and flirted with a minute flat
every time he got in the water as a
senior to do the century. Ed Kirai
had a best time of just under 56 sec-
onds for the free-style century be-
fore he came to Ann Arbor. In twc
years he became National champion
at 52.3, with 51.4 recorded officially in
a 20-yard pool. Walt Tomski could
do 56 in high school, Bob Mowerson
could do 59 and no less an authority
than Coach Pinkston of the Detroit
A.C. said Tom Haynie would never
break 55 for the 100. All did under
53 this season, and with Kirar set a
world record in the free-style relay.
That for the scoffers.

nival victories under their belts will

prospect of running their victory total

With the Wolverines just now hit-
ting their full stride, Illinois seems
to be in for an A-1 drubbing at the
hands of the Hoytmen this afternoon,
with even the chances for a hoped
for 50-point "moral victory" fading
.n light of the fact that none of the
teams which have experienced Mich-
igan's outdoor power this season have
been able to pass the 50 point mark,
California scoring but 49, Indiana
and Ohio State exactly 50 apiece.
Watson Resting
Big Bill Watson, Michigan's touted
"one man. track team" will probably
;e forced to limit his activities to two
events instead of his usual four due
yo the development of water on the
Knee. Watson aggravated an old in-
iury in high jumping as he rang up
four first places against Indiana
two weeks ago. He has been forced
to favor the knee since and will be
laid off in all but his favorite events,
the shot and discus, by Coach Char-
ey Hoyt in an effort to get him in

Wolverine Golf
Team To Meet
Indiana Today

In the way of a final story I resort
to a brief, very brief in fact, recol-
lction of four yars of basktball, now
as out of season as bock beer.
The first basketball game that we,
the class of '37, has the pleasure (it
faded into displeasure after we had{
had a good look at the motley crowd,
that called itself a team) of seeing the
Michigan cagers win, 27 to 25, against
a mediocre Ypsi five. This perfor-
mance was preceded by a resounding
25 to 22 victory over a disgracefully
weak Calvin College team.
Regeczi Otustanding
The high point of that season was
the performance of John Regeczi,
who after three years of basketball
was still an outstanding football
player. His foremost feats include
his defensive work against Purdue's
Norm Cottom, which resulted in six
baskets for Cottom despite the physi-
cal efforts of the great punters and
the Muskegon Heights' star's dive
into the "retaining" net around the
Yost Field House floor, which result-
ed in the complete demolishment of
the fence.
Our sophomore year we saw a
team that made the "motley crowd"
of 1933-34 look like a wonder five.

never did find out what his hands
were doing, and Jake and Earl
Townsend were still playing fresh-
man ball.
But things looked mighty nice last
year and this. If you wanted to name
an all-1933-through-1937 team all
you'd have to do would be to put
those two fives together, divide by
two and you'd have it.
Future Is Bright
Right now Michigan has a bright
future as far as basketball is con-
cerned. As official publicity agent
for Jake Townsend I can unpreju-
dicedly say that he is undoubtedly
Michigan's best cager, not that it's
any news, although I really have no
right to say it having never seen
Bennie Oosterbaan play. And John-
ny Gee is undoubtedly the most im-
proved cager we'll probably ever see.
As a parting bit of advice to Cappie
Cappon, who always gives me a grin
that hovers between skepticism and
profanity when I give him adyice, I
say go over to Indiana, also known
as God's country, and pick up some
basketball players, not that I want
to be provincial, and you'll never
have another worry-at least not
about the basketball team.

Varsity Is Heavy
In Last Home
Before Big Ten


At Comiskey


CHICAGO, May 14.- (P) -The
world's heavyweight fight between
James 'J. Braddock and his Negro
challenger, Joe Louis, is definitely on
for Chicago.
The date will be the night of June
22, the site Comiskey Park, home of
the Chicago White Sox, and the dis-
tance 15 rounds, or less.
The last apparent legal obstacle
was hurdled today when Federal
Judges Guy L. Fake gave his long
awaited decision in Newark, N.J.,
refusing the application of the Madi-
son Square Garden Corporation to
stop Braddock from defending his
crown against the Brown Bomber.
The machinery back of the fight
was set in full motion as quickly as
the decision was received.
Joe Foley, nominal promoter of the
match, announced he would begin
accepting mail orders for tickets im-
mediately. Since the bout was first
signed here, Feb. 19, an amazing flood
of ticket applications has been re-
ceived by Foley, but he was obliged
to reject all, pending the court set-

These seven Negro athletes will attempt to carry on in the Big Ten outdoor meet, next week, where Jesse
Owens and Willis Ward left off. James Smith is a member of the famous Indiana distance trio of Lash,
Smith, and Deckard. The two clearing the bar in the upper right are Ohio State's altitude twins. Together
they hold the world's indoor record of exactly the same height as Albritton's outdoor mark, 6 feet 9% inches.
Robert Nelson ran anchor on Iowa's four-mile relay team. Eugene Skinner captured third place in the Big
Ten 440 indoors in 1934. Homer Harris, captain-elect of the football team, is the third of this versatile
Iowa trio. Michigan's own Bill Watson broke the indoor Big Ten shotput record last winter, and seems
destined to do the same to the outdoor mark.
