Aougers Place Four Men

On All-Star Hockey


Chicago Pot Pourri .. .
A TOUCH of laryngitis, the reces-
sion and staff considerations
combined to prevent this corner from
its Chicago hearth,dand the several
Conference meets during the past
week-end. But in the octopus man-
ner, we had tentacles on the scene-
and last night found our drawer bulg-
ing with aside lines ... .
Preparation to launch this
piece with Caesar's Gallic salu-
tation, "Veni, Vidi, Vici," went
for naught when the swimming
results came across the wire to
barely make a deadline. But
neither Matt Mann nor Wolver-
ine partisans expected Kirar,
Haynie et al, to defeat Mike
Peppe's powerful Ohio State
squad, which twice defeated
Michigan in dual meets this sea-
son. Two Big Ten champion-
ships out of three is enough any-
how to put the quietus on those
inclined to chide us for that
"Champions of the West" line in
the victory chant. If Fritz Crisler
can perform a Betsey Ross on the
bedraggled football pennant,
Michigan's stock, and that of Di-
rector Yost's cigar maker, will
rise accordingly.
Charley Hoyt didn't, of course,
reckon with the amazing collapse of
Indiana's middle distance and dis-
tance strength, but with character-
istic lack of verbal display, he knew
his squad had enough balance and
well-distributed power back of the
tape-breakers to win. Consider that
13 Michigan men contributed to the
Wolverine point total, only two of
them gaining firsts. Ohio State and
Iowa each boasted seven point-get-
ters, while Wisconsin and Indiana
had five. Wisconsin, the runner-up,
had four first places.
Cliff Keen, unable to under-
stand the widespread lack of
campus interest in wrestling,
must feel compensated for the
Daily's laxity in publicizing his
sport. A Conference title is some-
thing to work on ...
Peppe Gets A Duck...
Ohio State's swimming champion-
ship was the first it has ever attained,
brought on a spasm of jubilation
which resulted in the Buckeye. mer-
men hurling their mite mentor, Mike
Peppe into the pool, clothes and all.
Peppe good-naturedly obliged with a
comical exhibition that delighted on-
lookers no end' ... Indiana, Chicago
and Purdue failed to place a man in
the finals. . Capt. Ed Kirar climaxed
a brililant career in Big Ten circles
with the only individual record-
breaking feats of the entire festivi-
ties, departed from the tank owner
of new marks in both the 50-and 100-
yard races with a :52.8 and :23.3
time respectively . . . Ovation given
Kirar and Coach Mann before the
meet started seemed louder than any
other, according to our unbiased in-
former . . . Kirar and Haynie were
the only double winners, both re-
tained titles they won in '37 ...
Dick Squire, phio half -miler
who failed to qualify in his fa,
vored event, found himself a
bench after the race and released
his inhibitions with copious tears
. .. Michigan's Harold Davidson,
who almost qualified in the 880
but fell short, approached the
mourning Buckeye and barked:
"Move over, Squire, I want to sit
down and cry with you.. ."
Norm Purucker, forced into
several wagers by this depart-

ment's revelation that he was
taking 3 to 1 that he'd gain a
point in the sprints, refused to
rationalize his failure to qualify
for the finals ...Said Purucker
of his rivals: "They ran like
hell. What could I do?".
After Gib James had missed about
five sizzling shots in Saturday night's
hockey game against Paris, he re-
turned to the bench, where his fath-
er, W. E. James-who drove from Ot-
tawa to watch Gib and Spike in ac-
tion-handed him a pair of eyeglasses
. And Gib is now wondering if his
father wasn't having his little joke . .

Another Big Ten championship
track meet, replete with broken rec-

the limbo of athletic history Satur-

The atmosphere has changed. Up
in the second story loft, where Coach

the tense feeling that prevailed since
their intial defeat by the Hoosiers
has been alleviated.
Last Saturday night the Michigan
matmen won the Conference titl
when they nosed out their old rivals,
the Hoosiers of Indiana, by a score
of 28 to 25. Although finishing near
the top for the past nine years, this is

have been able to take top honors.
