Grid Mentors Talk It Over With Captain Rinaldi

Shown above are 'Hunk' Anderson, newly appointed line coach of thej
Wolverine grid team, Head Coach Harry Kipke and Joe Rinaldi, captain-
elect of the 1937 football team. The men who hold the key to Michigan's
grid success next season all seem to be in a jovial mood.

Tankers Meet
Gopher Team
Here Saturday
Following the clash with the Iowa
natators tonight, Michigan's Varsity
swimmers will entrain for the return
trip to Ann Arbor where they will
meet the Minnesota aggregation at
8:30 Saturday night.
The Gopher mermen battled to a
42-42 tie with the Illini last week
at Champaign. No outstanding times
were recorded, however, except in
the 400-yard relay which Illinois won.
Will Be Handicapped
The Wolverines will be under a
handicap in that they will have spent
two nights on the train previous to
the meeting with the Gophers. The
1,000-mile trip to Iowa City and back
combined with the tough competition
that the Hawkeyes will furnish to-
night may tell on the Mann charges.
Matt Mann is confident of a twin
victory this week-end, however, in
spite of the "nightmare" schedule.
In Hudson, Minnesota has a very
capable free-style swimmer who finds
his specialty in the 50 and 100-yard
sprints. He grabbed both firsts in
.the meet with the Illini. Walt Tomski
and Ed Kirar of the Varsity are heavy
favorites in the dashes but the Go-
pher splasher may push the road-
weary Wolverines in these events.
The Brandt brothers, who swim on
their backs for the Gopher tank team,
have recorded times that are not as
fast as those of Fred Cody in the
150-yard back-stroke event. However,
they should provide a good race for
aquatic fans.

Most Important
Trip In Years

Chance For Big Tenr
Is At Stake; Meet
State Tomorrow


Grapplers Eye Indiana
Tilt In Daily Warm-Ups
Michigan's Varsity wrestlers went
through an intensive drill yesterday
in preparation. for their impending
battle with Indiana's strong Hoosiers
at 7:30 p.m. on Monday.
Coach Cliff Keen played the part
of general opponent for all Varsity
men yesterday, working out with
each one individually as preparation
for the all-important battle with the
It is very unlikely that Big Butch
Jordan will be in shape for the match
on Monday night. The heavyweight's
knee is responding very slowly to
treatment and there is just a bare
possibility that he will wrestle. Earl
Thomas, recuperating from flu should
be in shape to meet Indiana.

Michigan's title-conscious basket-
ball team will embark this afternoon
on its most important road trip of the
last eight years to play Ohio State
tomorrow, one of the two Big Ten
teams that has beaten the Varsity
this season, and an Indiana five,
guaranteed to be well schooled in
methods of revenge.
On the outcome of this trip largely
depends the Wolverines' chances to
win the Conference race that closes
a week from tomorrow. Of the three
teams still in the
running the Michi-
gan five has by
far the toughest
road ahead of it.
Both Minnesota
and Illinois, aside
from their encoun-
ters with an up-
and-coming North-
western team that
decided to get start-
ed too late, have
easy sailing.
Huffman Is Ill
HUFFMAN Indiana will take
Indivix the floor, in all
probability, without the services of
Vernon Huffman, co-captain and
backbone of the Hoosiers.
Coach Cappy Cappon named an
11-man squad to take the last trip.
The squad is made up of Capt. John-
ny Gee, Jake Townsend, Bill Barclay,
Herm Fishman, Matt Patanelli, Ed
Thomas, Danny Smick, Leo Beebe,
Bill Lane, Ferris Jennings and Dick

Varsity Tracksters concentrate
On Repelling Buckeye Invasion

Several Marks May Fall
At Field House; Team Is
Not Up ToStrength
Last week, with the swamping of
State being wholly expected, Michi-
gan's track team made its main ob-
jective the smashing of Field House
records, but tomorrow night against
the powerful Buckeyes of Ohio State
the Wolverines will let the records
take care of themselves and will con-
centrate mainly on repelling this lat-
est Buck invasion.
However, even though Coach Chuck
Hoyt's thinclads will not be out pri-
marily to set new marks the calibre
of competition offered by the Buck-
eyes may automatically lead to the
breaking of present records.
In greatest -danger appears to be
the existing marks in the high jump
and quarter mile. Ohio's Dave Al-

britton jumped 6 feet 4 7/8 inches in
the Field House last winter and he
and his teammate, Mel Walker, both
cleared 6 feet 6 inches at Indiana S
Monday night.
The dual in the 440 between Stan
Birleson and Chuck Beetham may
result in the breaking of the :49.2
that Stan ran last Saturday. Beetham
will also compete in the half mile.
Ross Faulkner, flashy sophomore
quarter miler, has been confined to
the Health Service most of the week This new Line of ARROW SHIRTS
and as yet it is not known whether he
will be able to compete tomorrow. If handled at
not Howard Davidson will be kept out
of the 880 and will run in Faulkner's
place on the mile relay. team.
Dave Hunn, veteran pole vaulter,
is also on the crippled list with a leg
ailment but is expected to be in
shape by tomorrow night. Roy
Heath, sophomore sprinter, recently
tore a leg tendon and is definitely out.
