Battered Varsity Pucksters

Tackle London AllStars

?-- _

Johnny Speicher's draw with Con-
ference champion Bob Meyers at 118-
pounds gave the Wolverines the
points needed for victory.
The Speicher-Meyers bout was nip
and tuck all the way. The Michigan
junior came from behind in the clos-
ing minutes to turn what seemed al-
most certain defeat into overtime. In
the extra session Speicher had a little
the better of the going, but Referee
Fendley Collins of Michigan State
called the bout a draw.
Cameron Loses
Paul Cameron, weakened by a
constant siege of illness this winter,
lost a very odd decision to Scotty
Sefton in the 126-pound class. Sef-
ton had only a 56-second time ad-
vantage at the end of the bout, but
Referee Collins called the Hoosier
the winner i)ithout consulting the
Cameron went out after a fall and
piled up a 4:01 advantage in the
first four and one-half minutes, but
Sefton came back very strong late
in the bout to win the nod.
There was no doubt the Thomas-
Tom Bryce affair at 135 pounds.
Thomas held the upper hand through
most of the bout and had a 6:07 ad-
vantage at its conclusion.
Sophomore Nichols met a very ag-
gressive 145-pound foe in Cliff Bass-
ham, and the bout was fast and close
all the way. Nichols finally eked out
a1:20 win on time.
Bissell Wins Again
Captain Bissell kept his slate for
the year clean by trouncing John
Keeler at 155 pounds. The Miciigan
leader came out fast, wasted little
time in tossing his man to the canvas
and spent the rest of the match striv-
ing desperately for a fall, just falling
short several times.
Danner also remained undefeated
at 165 pounds when he gave Chaun-
cey McDaniel, heralded Hoosier soph-
omore, a terrifice lacing in a bout
that went into overtime-the Wol-
verine holding only 44 seconds of1
advantage at the end of the regular
10 minutes.
Hampered all week by a cold, theĀ°
aggressive Michigan sophomore had
his opponent bleeding freely at the
nose and fully exhausted at the end.
McDaniel was carried from the mat.
It was the ability of Danner to
whirl out of the grasp of the larger
and stronger Hoosier that brought
the fans to their feet time after time.
Tasch Is Pinned
Dick Tasch, Michigan 175-pound-;
er, found a desperate Chris Traicoff
too much to contend with and bowed
to a fall in 8:04, falling victim to a
half-nelson and scissors.
With the five points that would]
come with a fall enough to give In-
diana victory, the gargantuan Haak
went after Lincoln with a vengeance
in the unlimited class. Outweighing
his Michigan foe by' more than 30
pounds, the Hoosier sophomore al-
most pinned Lincoln on several oc-
casions. Jim called upon every ounce
of strength and courage he possessed,
however, and lasted the distance to1
give Michigan a brilliant win.
Big Ten Standings

Little Johnny Speicher, flashy
junior 118 pounder, came from be-
hind last night to earn a draw with
Bob "Two-Bits" Myers, Conference
title holder from. I'ndiana, in a
thrill packed tout at the Yost Field
House. The two meet again in the
Conference meet, to be held here
March 12 and 13.

from Indiana, outsprinted Luigi Be-
calli of Italy, Olympic 1,500 meter

mile and a half feature of the annual
Seton Hall College track carnival.
The time was 6 minutes 47.9 seconds,1

odd distance.

Merrill Victim Of Gopher
Brawl; Only Eight Men
CapableOf Action
Bruised and battered, but as Wes-
tern Conference Champions by dint
of their split with Minnesota at
Minneapolis Wednesday and Friday,
a rough and ready Michigan hockey
club will take the ice tonight against
an All-Star amateur team from Lon-
Tonight's tilt will be the first of a
three-game wind-up which Coach
Eddie Lowrey has carded for local
fans before writing finis to the 1936-
37 season. Saturday night, the great
Toronto Varsity will be here to en-
gage the Wolverines and one week
later the veteran Kitchener sextet
will officially close the season.
Merrill Injured
Jack Merrill will be missing from
the line-up tonight when the as-
sembed London All-Stars line up for
the opening face-off. Merrill was the
number one victim of the Galloping
Merrill is suffering from a bad
charley horse and a wrenched knee.
Nor did the rest of the Wolverines
return from the wars unscathed.
Bert Smith sustained a nasty head
cut and Captain Vic Heyliger lost a
tooth, while the entire squad was
pretty well banged up in the fray.
With Merrill out, Lowrey will have
but eight men to send against the
powerful London club. He plans to
start his high scoring trio of Heylig-
er, Gib James and Johnny Fabello
and work in George Cooke and Ed
Chase from time to time as stra-
tegically as possible.
Bert Smith and Bob Simpson will
be at the red line as usual with Bill
Chase in the nets.
Bennett Mainstay
Cecil Hill, London mentor, boasts
a fast, smooth passing sextet which
has as its mainstay, Irish Bennett,
the goalie. He is generally recognized
as one of the best amateur goalies in
Best on defense is Jack Barclay,
who is regarded as best in the big six
group. Paired with him Hill has Bill
Arbour who, this season, is the lead-
ing goal-getter on the squad.
Fans may get a chance to see what
might be called a poke-checking bat-
tle if Vic Heyliger and Tom Foskett,
the London left wing, are both at top
form. Foskett majors in tricky stick

O.S. U. Tankers
To Meet Varsity
In Home Final
Michigan's intercollegiate swim-
ming champions will swing into ac-
tion against the Ohio State team to-
morrow in the last home meet of the
season. The contest is scheduled to
start at 4:30 p.m. at the Varsity pool.
This will be the second time that
the Wolverines have met the Buck-
eyes this season. In the meet a week
ago at Columbus, the Varsity found
more in the line of swimming, talent
than they had expected and were able
to turn back the Buckeyes by only a
45-39 score. If Matt Mann's charges
turn on the steam as they did in Iowal
City last Friday night ,however, there
is little doubt but what the score
will be much more lop-sided.
Varsity Seeks Revenge
The meet will take the form of a
revenge contest. Both Fred Cody
and Ben Grady will be out to avenge
the defeat suffered at the hands of
the Buckeyes. Bill Neunzig pulled
a surprise in the first meet when he
beat Cody to the finish in the 150-
yard back-stroke to set a new inter-
collegiate record of 1:36.7. Unless
Neunzig has another such perfor-
mance in his system, Cody stands a,
good chance of beating the fleet
Jimmy Patterson, Big Ten diving
champion last year, has proved to
be quite a nemesis for the diminu-
tive Ben Grady. He finished ahead
of him in the collegiates last year
and beat him out by a very narrow,
margin in the Buckeye dual meet this
year. Grady hopes to tutn the
tables tomorrow afternoon however.
IHaynie After Record
Coach Mann has announced that
Tom Haynie will attempt to better
the intercollegiate mark in the 220-
yard swim tomorrow. He will be
swimming against Captain Wood-
ford of the Ohio Statessquad who,
incidently, swims a fast 220 him-
self. It was Haynie who cracked the
intercollegiate records for the 220
and 440 in 20-yard pools at the Iowa
meet last Friday.

Mickey Picks
Tiger Catcher;
It's Cochrane
MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 1.-
(P)-Mr. Gordon (Mickey) Cochrane,
vice-president and manager of the
Detroit Baseball Club, said today a
guy named Mickey Cochrane will be
the regular catcher for the Tigers
this year.
"There are some young fellows
coming up but I think Mike's still
got the stuff," said Mr. Cochrane as
he reviewed the prospective lineup.
"But I've got Ray Hayworth and
George Tebbetts backing him up.
You remember Hayworth caught
most of the season after Mickey went
out after playing only 45 games..,Teb-
bets came up from Beaumont last
fall. So between these three, I guess
we're all set behind the plate.
"Hank Greenberg's wrist is okay
now and he'll start at first base.
Charley Gehringer will be back at
second, Bill Rogell at short and Mar-
vin Owen at third. If there's a bet-
ter fielding combination in the
League, I'd like to see it."
For the outfield there are Al Sim-
mons, Goose Goslin, Gerald Walker,
Jo Jo White, Pete Fox, and a new-
comer from Milwaukee, Chet Laabs.
There are five holdover pitchers-
Schoolboy Rowe, Elden Auker, Roxy
Lawson, Joe Sullivan and Vic Sorrell
and seven new men.

314 South State Street

Fresh from their overwhelming de-
feat of Ohio State Saturday, the
Michigan track team yesterday set-
tled down to hard work in prepara-
tion for the big dual meet with the
University of Pittsburgh on Friday.
The Wolverines have scored 129
points in two meets to 61 for Mich-
igan State and the Buckeyes. Whe-
ther they can keep on outscoring their
opponents by this ratio of better than
two to one is doubted by many ob-
servers, but the Wolverines them-
selves will be out Friday night to
show that it can be done.
Leading the Pitt squad will be two
lanky Negroes, Johnny Woodruff and
Ed Thomas, and between them they
may furnish Michigan with plenty
of trouble before the meet is over.
Woodruff is Olympic 800 meter cham-
pion and here will probably run the
440 also. Thomas is Eastern Inter-
legiate sprint champion which means
that the battle in the 60-yaid dash
between him and Michigan's Sam
Stoller will be one of the greatest
races on the card.
In the quarter Woodruff will have
to beat Stan Birleson if he wants a
first and the great Chuck Beetham
of Ohio State found out what this
means. Birleson ran :49.9 to win
from Beetham and :49.2 against
State. In the relay Saturday he
went the route in :48.6 with a run-
ning start and if you don't think that
is fast just consider the fact that
the world record for the quarter in-
doors is :48.9.
Then in the half, while Woodruff
will be favored, Michigan will send
Ben Starr and Howard Davidson
