Wolverines' bag of tricks. He opened
the set-up plays for Townsend's pass-
ing by the use of a blocking offense
as the guards broke through the free
throw lane. Although he has tried
to get his boys to do this for weeks the
strategy worked for the first time last
night.
Huffman Cheered
Huffman and Ken Gunning, the
Hoosier captains, were unable to
stem the tide of Michigan baskets,
Huffman played his heart out but
the best he could do was three bas-
kets as Townsend went around him
time after time for points. Near the
end of the game the great Hoosier
athlete, voted the Conference's out-
standing gridder and member of the
1936 all-Big Ten cage team, was
called on his fourth personal and
left the floor amid a storm of ap-
plause from a partisan crowd that
recognized a superior athlete.
The Indiana offense was useless as
the Varsity stopped it cold. True the
Bloomington boys couldn't stop their
shots, but the Wolverine defense was
so tight that Indiana seldom got a
clean attempt.
Michigan Goes Wild
For the first half Michigan seemed
to .be laboring under its usual mental
handicap that always shows up when
the Varsity plays either Purdue or
Indiana. Still the Wolverines were
working errorlessly and the ultimate
result was inevitable. The half end-
ed with score 23 to 17 in their favor
as they dropped nine out of 10 free
throws.
In the second half, however, Michi-
gan ran wild, scoring almost at will.
Dean substitutedufreely but the only
man .that he could get to work was
Jim Birr, former Indanapolis high
school star and an old opponent of

The PRESS ANGLE
By GEORGE J. ANDROS
More Worlds To Conquer.. .
HAS COACH BOB KIPUTH of Yale had a change of heart? .. . Or has
somebody gone over his head? . . . The National A.A.U. swimming meet
to be held at New Haven has been re-dated to April 8-10 . . . Now Matt
Mann's Michigan team can enter . . . Right now I am going out on the
sports editors' proverbial limb to predict a victory for the Varsity if Matt
takes a full team .. . Any bets? . . . A few of the winter and spring athletes
are anxiously waiting for the results of the meeting of the eligibility board to
be held Wednesday night . . . Helen Wolf, freshman co-ed from Yonkers,
placed second in the Detroit Times Golden Skates mile event Feb. 3 . . .
Perry Schad of Flint, veteran boxing referee, calls Len Spector Michigan
freshman, the best novice boxer he has ever seen.
Collier's Weekly, through writer Kyle Crichton, names Michigan's Jake
Townsend as the best of the more recent crop of Indiana basketball players
... In the same article Coach Piggy Lambert of Purdue is quoted as saying:
"Townsend is the best passer I've ever seen'' . . . Quite a significant state-
ment when you consider the source . . . Lambert is the man who becomes
so worked up in a heated game that it is necessary to hire a stooge to sit
on the bench with him and hold him off the playing floor . . . He'll be here
next Monday night with his Boilermaker team.. . Bob Pirie, the outstanding
swimmer of the British Empire, has gone back to his Canadian home after
coming to Ann Arbor to enter Michigan . . . The great free-styler of the
Canadian Olympic team would have been forced to attend high school
for a long time to gain the necessary entrance requirements.
Nice Going, Sammy ...
UONGRATULATIONS to Sammy Stoller . . . His victory over the crack
field of sprinters at Boston last Saturday night was a great piece of work
... Michigan State thinks its sophomore Wilbur Greer will make it very hot
for Stoller in the dual meet here next Saturday night . . . Spectators at the
Ann Arbor Golden Gloves finals thought freshman Len Spector was a cocky
lad because he stood up in his corner between rounds . . . Len was merely
following the latest training dope . . . Recuperation after exertion depends
largely upon blood circulation, which is faster when a person is standing
than when he is sitting.. . That is why runners walk or jog around after
a hard race . . . Johnny Fischer, National Amature Golf Champion and
former Michigan captain, is playing handball to reduce from 158 to his
championship weight of 146 . . . He is attending law school at Cincinnati
University.
Ben Grady's trail of a Big Ten diving champion has been made a little
easier by the ineligibility ban slapped on Am Christen and John Stark of
Iowa ... But there still remain Champion Patterson of Ohio State and Stauf-
fer of Chicago ... Ben is coaching University High School's would-be nat-
ators again this winter ... Purdue used 17 players in trimming Iowa Sat-
urday night. .. In beating Chipago the same night only three Illinois cagers
scored. . . The dream of swimming coach Ed Manley of Illinois of making a
national champion out of Norm Lewis has faded . . . Lewis has been de-
clared ineligible . . . Tex Robertson, former Varsity swim ace now coach
at Texas U., is bringing a team North to compete in the National Colle-
giates.

Michigan's Varsity track team, po-
tentially one of the strongest in Wol-
verine history and the early favoriteE
to win the Big Ten indoor title next
month for a fourth straight year,
opens its schedule Saturday night in
a dual meet with Michigan State at
Yost Field House.
The Wolverine thinclads apparent-
ly emerged from the battle with the
eligibility bugaboo in excellent shape.
The exact status of the members of
the team will be learned Wednesday
night when the eligibility committee
of the Board in Control of Athletics
meets at the Administration Build-
ing.
Panthers Are Strong
The meet with the Spartans will be
the first of threehome indoor meets,
Ohio State and Pittsburgh being
scheduled for the next two successive
Saturdays. The Pitt engagement is
the first dual meet ever scheduled
between the two schools and should
be the highlight of the local indoor
season.
The Panthers have a great team
and are reported to be eyeing the na-
tional track and field championship
and, paced by the great Johnny
Woodruff, Olympic 800 meter chai-
pion, will face the Wolverines on
practically even terms.
State will bring a squad of 39 men

here Saturday for the season's open-
er and the meet should serve as arr
excellent indicator of Michigan's ac-
tual strength. The Spartans face
Michigan Normal Wednesday in their
first meet of the year and not until
then will local observers know defi-
nitely the strength of the State ag-
gregation.
However, it is known that the Spar-
tans possess at least one great dis-
tance runner in Ken Waite, IC-4A
cross countryechampion, and the
competition between him and the
Michigan distance stars snould pro-
duce some excellent times.
Michigan Is Favored
Sammy Stoller, just back from Bos-
ton where he captured the Briggs In-
vitational 50-yard dash Saturday
night, may also have a job in beat-
ing out sophomore Wilbur Greer of
the Spartans in the 60. Although
Greer has not yet run in collegiate
competition he is reported to be the
fastest sprinter Michigan State has
had in several years.
Michigan will be an overwhelming
favorite to capture the meet but
Spartan stars may come through un-
expectedly to take a number of firsts.
However, on the basis of formertac-
complishments and this year's time
trials such men as Capt. Bob Osgood,
Stoller, Stan Birleson, and Howard
Davidson should be certain winners.

Michigan Faces Ohio
Matmen Here Feb. 22
Michigan's Varsity matmen will
tackle Ohio University's Bobcats here
February 22, at 3 p.m., the Athletic
Department announced yesterday.
This meet has been scheduled as a
substitute for a previous match that
was cancelled on January 23 due to
flood conditions in southern Ohio
