Three Michigan Wrestlers Capture Mat Crowns In A .A.


Savilla, Sparks
And Heavenrich
Are Victorius
Other University Students
Show Well As Champions
Are Named In 9 Classes
A former Varsity captain, one of
this year's letterwinners, and an up
and coming freshman prospect, col-
laborated to give Michigan three
champions in the annual state A.A.U.
wrestling tournament, held last night
at the Intramural Sports Building.
Wally Heavenrich, TWolverine cap-
tain in 1936, and a former Big Ten
champion, took the 135 pound title
by gaining a 14-7. advantage over
Jim Mericka of this year's Varsity.
Joe Savilla of the Varsity squad
dethroned Jim Lincoln, defending
champion, in a heavyweight argu-
ment. Savilla held an 8-6 advan-
tage in this battle of football tackles.
Lincoln gained the favor of the
crowds when he defeated Ed Clem-
ents, 245 pound beer garden bouncer
from Dearborn, in a quarter final
Sparks Shows Promise
A tiny freshman from Tulsa, Okla.,
Tom Sparks, established himself as
a future star when he pushed Bob
Townsend of Ottawa Hills High
School all over the mat for six min-
utes to annex the 118 pound toga. He
scored 12 points while blanking
Two of Coach Port Robertson's bet-
ter freshman grapplers, John Paup
and Ralph Turner, won three matches
apiece, only to lose to more exper-
ienced men in the finals. Turner,
competing at 155 pounds dropped a
close decision to Wayne Jack, a 25
year old veteran from the Port Huron
Y.M.C.A., while Paup, 145 pounder,
handicapped by a shoulder injury re-
ceived in an earlier match, was pinned
by Ray Korreck of Davis Vocational
High in Grand Rapids, in 1:50. Kor-
rmck used a half-nelson.
Friedenberg Nosed Out
Jerry Friedenberg, a reserve on
the Varsity squad, lost a hard fought
battle to Charles Hutson of Michigan
State in the final of 165 pound divi-
sion. Hutson's advantage was 9-7.
Another Michigan man, Emanuel
Knobloch, was Hutson's victim in the
semi-finals, falling by a 4-1 count.
Bill Courtright, 16 year old son of
the Varsity golf coach, showed excep-
tional promise in the 135 pound
class, before succumbing to Mericka
in the semi-finals.
Other champions crowned were
Jack Nicholson, unattached, in the
175 pound class, Dick French of Ann
Arbor in the 126 pound division, and
Bob Bayle, 112 pounder from Grand
Rlapids Junior College.
Davis Vocational High took the
unofficial team title with 11 points,
while Port Huron Y.M.C.A. and
Grand Rapids Junior College tied for
second place. All of the Michigan
grapplers competed unattached, so as
not to violate a Big Ten ruling.
The first Tournament of Roses
football game was played in the Rose
Bowl at Pasadena, Calif., in 1902,
when Michigan walloped Stanford by
a score of 49-0.

if History Repeats Itself Michigan Will
Retain Its National College Swim Crown

College swim camps the country
over are seething with action this
week as the date approaches for the
nation's swim stars to pack bag and
baggage and trek to the domains of
Rutgers University at New Brunswick,
New Jersey, for the 1938 National
Collegiate swimming championships.
The meet will be waged on Friday
and Saturday, March 25 and 26.
Hoping for a repetition of the 1936
season's occurrences which found
Michigan dropping the Conference
title, and then swimming off with
the National championship, Coach
Matt Mann has been pushing his
charges daily in the I-M pool, and
announced yesterday that he and a
twelve-man team would leave for the
meet Wednesday morning.
Very much in the running for the
championship, Michigan will be hard
pressed, however, to retain the crown
it won with an excess of ease last
year when the Wolverine score was
almost twice that of Ohio State, the
Since that time Ohio State became

all-too powerful an aggregation, Har-
vard produced an amazing team,
Texas attracted a number of aquatic
aces, Yale remained a troublesome
crew, Princeton educated the great
Al Van de Weghe into a sophomore,
and several other schools groomed
men who are now ready to contest one
and all for the first place medals.
Hal Ulen's Crimson competitors will
rate as favorites to capture the team
title at meet time. Winner of the
Eastern Intercollegiate League title,
a loop which has furnished some of
the fastest times recorded in the coun-
try, and an overwhelming victor over
Yale, Harvard looms as the team to
A Matt Mann protege, Ulen, will pin
his hopes on Charley Hutter, a sprin-
ter whose feats have paralleled those
of Michigan's Ed Kirar, and Bill Ken-
dall, sophomore ace, who has turned
in the fastest times of the year in
the 220 and 440-yard swims. In Ber-
izzi and Cummins, Ulen also has a
dependable back-stroker and breast-

stroker, sure point-winners in the na-
Michigan followers know what Ohio
State can do; Yale has Macionis, al-
ways a great competitor; PrincetonS
Van de Weghe is the favorite in the
back-stroke, and Hough, another
Orange and Black ace from the Tiger
school has turned in the best per-
formances in the breast-stroke and is
expected to ascend the throne left
vacant by ex-Wolverine Jack Kasley.
With Princeton's two stars expected
to win the back and breast-stroke
races, Ohio State-men Neunzig and
Higgins are being relegated to place
positions. Ohio appears certain of
first place points in the diving, and
will be odds on favorite in the free-
style relay.
Michigan will not escape the pos-
sibility of seeing its aces suffer de-
feat as Harvard's Hutter and Kendall
rank with the best in the world in
their races, and can make things
miserable for Messrs. Kirar and Hay-
nie, Wolverine main hopes.

Varsity Eager
To Get Outside
Infield Is Still Too Wet
For Sustained Play'
The baseball squad is showing
marked signs of impatience to get
outside as it goes through its daily
workouts in the net-inclosed area of
the field house.
Coach Ray Fisher indicated that
the outfield of the Ferry Field dia-
mond was dry enough to :allow his
outfielders to shag fly balls but he
is holding the entire outfit inside for
a few more days at least. He doesn't
want to take the team out until he is
sure the weather won't drive it back,
in again.
Should the team drill outside and
then be forced back, the difference
in light would cause trouble with the
batting and perhaps would even af-
fect the pitching and fielding.
Coach Fisher will not commit him-l
self as to how his squad is coming
along since it is still too early in the
training period to size up the play-
ers as to possible lineups and indi-
vidual positions.
After the squad has worked out in
the open for a few days, Fisher plans
to get under way with intra-squad}
games in which he will have a chance
to test all of his charges under

Annual Fight Show
To Be Staged Soon
Plans for its annual charity box-
ing show to be held April 6 at the
Yost Field House were made known
last night by the committee of the
Junior Chamber of Commerce. Pro-
ceeds from the show, which will con-
sist of 15 bouts, will go to the Univer-
sity's fresh air camp for underpriv-
ileged youngsters.
The committee has arranged to
have the best boxers in the state,
both in the open and the novice
division, on the card. Fighters from
Kalamazoo, GrandRapids, Detroit,
Ann Arbor, and other cities will com-
pete. Most of the boys are winners
in the recent state-wide Golden,
Gloves contests. Don Van, state open
champ has been contacted, and in-
dications are that he'll appear on the

Four Veterans
Bolster Golfers
Team Preparing For Long
Spring Match Schedule
In preparation for the largest
schedule in the team's history, the
Michigan golf squad is limbering up
and getting in shape these after-
noorns by using the four new practice
nets that have been installed in the
Intramural building.
About 25 men have reported to
Coach Ray Courtright, among them
four lettermen from last year's team.
Leading the Wolverines during the
coming campaign will be Capt. Al
Karpinski, veteran linksman and
double letter winner.
Bill Barclay recovered from the
injury to his knee that kept him out
of the latter part of the cage sea-
son, is expected to continue the fine
play he exhibited while reaching the
semi-finals of the National Inter-
collegiate meet last spring.
Also back from last year are Bill
Warren, and Bill Yearnd, both letter
winners. An injury received in a re-
cent intramural hockey game has
temporarily halted practice for Bill
Griffiths, another member of last
year's outfit.
Jack Emery who was expected to
strengthen the Varsity forces .this
year has been declared ineligible.
Several sophomores, including Bob
Palmer, Grand Rapids district cham-
pion, and Ken Johnson, champion
of Jackson, look pretty good to Coach
Courtright, and he expects them to
push the older men for places on the
