'Oh, Say Can You See'...
A T 7:25 o'clock tonight, the Univer-
sity of Illinois armory will be
darkened. A flood light wil spot
an ascending American flag as the
Illini band plays the Star Spangled
Banner. And thus will begin the 15th
presentation of the famous Illinois
indoor relay carnival.
Suspended since 1931, the meet
will return to the winter sports
calendar with ostentation of a
high order. Approximately 430
athletes representing 36 univer-
sities and colleges have indicated
their intentions of competing in
the classic competition. And as
usual in midwestern track, team
efforts will be directed toward
preventing Michigan from re-
peating its triumph in '31.
In the last Champaign carnival, be-
spectacled Eddie Tolan, double
Olympic sprint winner in 1932, won
the 75-yard dash for Michigan, but
Charley Hoyt will have no compar-
able dash man this time. A bad cold
has shelved his best, Benedict Allen
Smith, and Bill Watson, as a sprinter,
is still the best shot putter in the
The meet will offer University
relays: mile, two miles, medley,
mile team race; special 320 yards
shuttle hurdles relay; 75 yard
dash, low and high hurdles; 300
yards, 1000 yards and 1500 meter
runs; high and broad jumps;
shot put and pole vault.
When Do Classes Start?
PROF. JACK COMBS, who won five
worlds' series games for Phila-
delphia during the first decade of
this. century, issued mimeographed
sheets to his Duke University ball
players the other day to test their
knowledge of the game. The Duke
coai gives the test annually to
sharpen their diamond wits, and
that it's a stiff quiz can be attested
by the New York Yankees, who once
spent hours on a road trip debating
the answers. Here are some of the
Q.-What is a shortstop's hardest
fielding play?
A.-A batted ball which bounds
over the pitcher's head. This ball
must be fielded on the run and the
shorstorp's throw to first base must
be 'made under full speed, thrown
from the awkward position in which
he fields the ball.
Q.-How would you play your in-
field under the following situations,
deep or in close? 1. Runners on
first and third bases, second inning,
no score, one out, eighth man in the
batting order at the plate. 2. Run
ner on first base, one out, three runs
behind, three balls and one strike?
A.-1. Deep. 2. Close.
Q.-Should a pitcher vary the time
between each pitched ball?
A.-Yes, particularly if any base is
occupied. If the pitcher does not vary
the time he consumes in making his
different deliveries runners will be
invited to steal bases.
Q.-When should a catcher\ back
up third base?
A.-A catcher should never back
up third base.
Q.-What is a wasteball and why
is it pitched?
A.-A quick pitch so far away from
the plate that it cannot be hit by the
batsman. It is thrown because the
catcher has some defensive play in
Q.-What is the most difficult
fielding play for a pitcher?
A.--The swinging bunt. The ball
is swung at very hard and is hit in
such a manner that it rolls slowly

close ,to the base line. The difficulty
for the pitcher is to decide whether
to let the ball roll with the hope it
may go foul or pick it up for an al-
most impossible playiat first base.
Indiana Wins 45-35;
Andres Sets Record
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 4.-GP)--
Ernie Andres of Indiana established
a new Big Ten individual scoring
record tonight of 30 points in leading
the Hoosiers to a 45 to 35 victory
over Illinois.
Andres, playing the last part of the
game with an injured leg after rack-
ing up 28 points, scored his last bas-
ket on a follow-up shot with one
minute of the game remaining and
then was immediately replaced.
He bettered by one point the for-,
merindividual record established by
Joe Rieff of Northwestern in 1933
and tied by Jewell Young of Purdue

Sextet To Face
Strong Squatd
From Toronto
Wolverines Seek Revenge
Over Last Year's Loss;
Allen To See Action
For the second time in as many
years, Ace Bailey brings his highly
feared University of Toronto hockey
team to the Michigan Coliseum to-
night. The Wolverines dropped last
season's tilt 4-2 and are the under-
dogs in the present set-to. The game
starts at 8 p.m.
Toronto is playing its last game of
the season and is doing so without
the services of three mainstays. Even
with these losses they will have plenty
of reserve material to use in lieu.
Bailey is bringing 16 players-enough
to almost double Michigan's number.
Allen Back In Line-Up
Partially incapacitated during the
first Michigan Tech game last Mon-
day, "Smack" Allen will be back in
the line-up. He received a large gash
in the head which required five1
stitches to close. This gives him a
grand total of 24 stitches now closing
gaps in his forehead. A previous blow
healing. The remainder of the Wol-
which required 19 stitches is still
verine roster will be unchanged.
Toronto's Coach Bailey will be re-
membered as the Maple Leaf star who
after his nearly fatal accident in the
Boston Bruin-Leaf game of four years
ago made a remarkable comeback to
regain his health. He is now in his
third year as mentor at Toronto.
Have Impressive Record
The visitors' record is quite im-
pressive. They boast 11 wins, six
losses and one tie playing in the
country's toughest collegiate ice cir-
cuit, t h e International Hockey
League. Their record, however, was
not good enough to give them better
' than third place in the standings.
The first line is made up of Bud
Ross at left wing, Lloyd MacIlquham
at center, and Dick Craig at right
wing. This line is their greatest
scoring threat. Craig is very fast
and sets up the plays, MacIlquham
has seen plenty of action in the Sen-
ior O.H.A. before competing with the
Varsity, and Ross is an able stick
Capt. Ernie Rey and Cam Mac-
Lachlan will pair up on defense. Rey
is playing his fifth season on the
Varsity and despite his blue line po-
sition is one of the team's leading
scorers. MacLachlan is in his first
year. Bing Caswell, the goalie, is an-
other veteran and this makes his
third year with the team.
Purdue Risks
Title In Game
With Wildcats
With the Big Ten championship
hanging in the balance, Northwest-
ern's crippled basketball team lies in
wait at its Evanston stronghold today
for the arrival of the pace-setting
Boilermakers and a chance to warm
themselves at the victory bonfire
now being built at Lafayette.
Minus the services of veteran Fred
Trenkle, the Wildcats will be hard-
pressed to keep up the pace set by I
the Riveters. Paced by Jewell Young,
who set a new scoring record for the
second successive year last Monday,

Piggy Lambert's men make up in of-
fense, in speed and clever ball-han-
dling, for what they lack in defensive
Defensive Ability High
On the other hand the Purple!
squad's, forte is its defensive ability.
They've held their opponents to an
average of 32 points per game this
year. However, on Jan. 17 at Lafay-
ette they fell before a Purdueon-
slaught by a 37-26 count. But if
their defense continues to function
as well as it has in the majority
of the games so far, they have a fair
chance of sharing in top honors.
Buckeyes Play Maroons
At Columbus tonight, the Buckeyes
are keyed, to trample the defeat-rid-
den Maroons for the second time this
season. The victory will definitely
place them in fourth place in the
final standings.
Minnesota has a final chance to
establish itself definitely as a power-
ful comeback team. They meet Wis-
consin tonight.

Points With Penalties And Wins

John Speicher
Will Give Last,
Not only will today's wrestling meetI
be the last dual appearance of the
season for the Wolverine team, but it
will also mark the last home showing
of Co-Captain John Speicher of the
Michigan team. The Reading, Pa.,
118 pounder has been working for
Coach Keen in the lower weight
classes since he made the squad in
his sophomore year.
Coming out for wrestling as a
freshman, "just because some of the
fellows I knew were," John spent his
time in the background, picking up
every bit of information about the
sport he could possibly gather. At
the end of the season he was rated
as the second best 118 pounder on
the yearling squad.
Ahead In Win Column
Upon the completion of his soph-
omore year the Michigan man did not
have a perfect record to his credit,
but he was far ahead in the win col-
umn, having chalked up seven vic-
tories while losing only two. Last
year he had a perfect dual meet slate
although forced to an overtime draw
with his old rival "Two-Bits" Myers
in the dual meet with the Hoosiers.
Showing that practice and experi-
ence bring their rewards, John has
been able to take seven matches so
far this season and at no time has he
allowed any man to get the better
of him.
Entered National A.A.U. Meets
Coach Keen's smallest wrestler en-
tered the National A.A.U. meet for
two years and both tftnes has fin-
ished in the show position. In his
first national meet he won honors at
112 pounds. "After spending all day
in a steam bath along with not eating
anything the day before the match, I
woke up the morning of the event
tipping the scales at 111% pounds. It
was real work to get down to that
weight and I don't think I'll try that
In last year's national meet, Spei-
cher had what he called his greatest
battle. After being pushed around
he mat for 11 of their scheduled
15 minute bout, by Merrill Crost of
Utah, John came back in the last,
four minutes to win the contest.-
John will work in the 126 pound
class against Ohio today, and going
by his past record he should take the
curtain raising match. After this con-
test, he hopes to lead the Wolverines,
with Co-Captain Earl Thomas, to the
Big Ten championship next week at
ST. PETERSBURG. Fla., March 4.
-(A')-Chandler Harper, Richmond
professional, came from behind with
two sub par rounds today to tie John
Revolta of Evanston, Ill., for honors
in the finals of the $3,000 St. Peters-
burg open golf tournament.

Season Against
Ohio University
Michigan Favored To Win
Over Visitors; Mericka
May Replace Thomas
Coach Cliff Keen and his Wolver-
ine wrestlers will make their final
appearance in this year's dual wrest-
ling season when they meet Coach
Thorwald Olson's men from Ohio
IUniversity at 7:30 p.m. today on the
mats at Yost Field House.
When the curtain falls after the
last match of the evening, it will
bring to a close another great year
for the Wolverine wrestlers. With the
exception of a loss to Indiana in
their initial appearance of the sea-
son the Michigan team has gone
through with a perfect record and
there is little chance that the visitors
will upset this clean slate tonight at
the Field House.
Were Defeated By OSU
The Bobcats, of Ohio University,
have only a fair record to their credit
for this season's matches. They were
defeated by Ohio State, who, in turn,
was downed by the Wolverines in a
dual meet a week ago.
Because of the Conference meet
next week, Coach Keen will not use
all his power in the match tonight.
However Michigan fans will have the
opportunity to see Harland Danner
wrestle his last dual match as a
junior against John Sintic in the 155
pound class.
The other Michigan regulars who
will see action are: co-captain John
Speicher in the 126 pound division,
Harold Nichols at 145 pounds, sopho-
more Don Nichols in the 175 pound
class and Joe Savilla, who will work
in the unlimited weight grouping.
Freidenburg, Mericka To Compete
A shoulder injury will keep Dick
Tasch from the 165 pound division
and his place will be taken by Jerry
Freidenberg, while Jim Mericka, who
is undefeated so far this season, will
take the place of co-captain Earl
Thomas at 135 pounds.
Not only will the visitors have
strength in the 155 pound class, but
Coach Olson will place his ace heavy-
weight, Chester Adamczyk, who has
met defeat but once this season,
against Savilla, Coach Keen's entry
in this weight.
Upon the conclusion of this match
the Wolverines will point for the
Conference title which probably will
turn out to be a battle between the
Hoosiers of Indiana and the Michi-
gan Wolverines.
Phi Delts Head I-M
Leading the Intramural Interfra-
ternity league by a wide margin in
current standings is Phi Delta Theta
who have amassed a total of 873
points. The Phi Delts have won
four events, track, speedball, wrest-
ling and relays.
In second place, but still with a
chance to pick up some points in
both A and B basketball, is Chi Psi
*with 831 points.
Trailing farther behind the leaders
are Kappa Nu with 798, Psi U with
788 and A.T.O. with 687 points. Of
this trio, only Kappa Nu has a chance
to pick up points in this season's
sports as they still have a team in
B basketball.

"Spike," younger of the James
duo of hockey fame, will be in the
nets tonight against the University
of Toronto sextet at the Coliseum.
A sophomore, James provided one
of the rarities of hockey when he,
as a goalie, was sent to the penalty
box for fighting in the Michigan
Tech game earlier in the week.
Frosh Swim
Stars To Aim
At AAU Titles
A half dozen Michigan freshman
swim stars will trek to Detroit to-
night to race for championships in
two division races of the annual
Michigan AAU affair at the Fisher
Y.M.C.A. pool.
The 100-yd. free-style title, and
the 150-yd. back-stroke crown will
be at stake, and it will be for these
championships that Coach Matt
Mann's yearling huskies will aim.
Probably the entire group of six,
which includes Jim Welsh, Chuck
Barker, Blake Thaxter, Bill Beebe,
Art Ebeling and Bill Holmes, will
battle for the free-style medals and
Beebe, Barker and Holmes will prob-
ably take in the back-stroke.
Helena Tomski, sister of Michigan's
Varsity free-styler, Walt Tomski, will
try to better Gertrude Ederle's Amer-
ican Mark of 1:41.6 for 150-yd. free-
style, made in 1925. In another at-
tempt, Andy Kerr will endeavor to
break Adolph Kiefer's mark of 3:31
There will be a -meeting of all
men interested in freshman track
at 2:30 p.m. today at Yost Field
House. New men are welcome.
Experience is not necessary.
