A Champ In The Making ..
CHARLEY HOYT usually makes a
careful choice of words when
speaking of any of his track men.
Reflection precedesany statement he
makes, especially, to newspapermen,
for whom he has developed a habitual
distrust. So when he tabbed Elmer
Gedeon as a better hurdle prospect
than Bob Osgood was at a comparable
period in his collegiate career, the
appraisal was worth jotting down.
Thursday's dual meet with
Michigan State was Elmer's first
in college competition. And to
add to the apprehension, if any,
of his debut, he was pitted
against a crack opponent in
Woodstra, who has been a persis-
tent hector to Allen Tolmich in
state intercollegiate meets. And
Tolmich recently beat the re-
doubtable Spec Towns over the
timbers. Of course, that's like
saying Stan Kelly is a good
hurdler because he doesn't comb
his hair, there being no connec-
tion in either case.
At any rate, Ged didn't permit
Woodstra's presence to disturb his
stride and evidently didn't think it
audacious for a debutant to assault
the dual meet records. He tied both
the high and' low hurdle mark with
times of :08.1 and :07.3 respectively.
Hoyt said yesterday that it was the
first time he ever saw a man per-
form as spelndidly in his initial
meet. "He's a real champion," Char-
ley stated, "Cool, possessed, and he
runs a smart race. That boy will be
hard to beat."
Gedeon was ineligible last
year, although he didn't plan
to participate in track, preferring
instead, baseball. Ie is the rela-
tive of an unidentified baseball
Immortal; at least, press releases
fail to note the man's identity
and no one seems to have
thought of asking Elmer himself,
who might possibly know. A pow-
er hitter, and an agile first sack-
er, he harbors big league ambi-
tions, or did until lately. Now,
the word's around that he will
stick with track even into the
outdoor season. That conflicts
with baseball, and unless some
plan is worked out whereby he
might combine the two sports,
he will have a tough choice to
Gedeon has a brilliant track future
ahead of him. Yet Baseball Coach
Ray Fisher can ill afford to lose
prospects of his caliber. Either Hoyt
or Fisher may later be issuing that
familiar . o 1 d American Legion
chant: "Where's Elmer?" And with

Looking A head ...
OUR swimming operative arrives
back from New Haven, Conn.,
with a few aside lines. He reports
that Paul Barnett, Yale's publicity
head, is wrought up over the Yale-
Michigan football game next fall.
He anticipates a crowd of 50,000,
and will sell the program, on which
he has already begun preparation,
for 50 cents. Programs sell for half a
buck at only three other Eli games-
Harvard, Dartmouth and Princeton.
The Eli-Wolverine clash will
take Fritz Crisler back into fa-
Milliar territory. The new Michi-
gan coach, by the way, thinks
Yale will be weakened appreciab-
ly by the loss of Clint Frank,
great All-American back. "lie
was the greatest all-round back
I've evIr seen, says C'risler.
"There have probably been great-
er specialty men than Frank, but
none who could do everything as
well as he."
Real rivalries need little ballyhoo
to drum up trade at the gate. The
Yale-Michigan swimming meet drew
a capacity crowd of 2,200-at $1.65

per capita . . . Matt Mann protested
for fully 10 minutes the results of the
50-yard event . . . He claimed, and
every Michigan man there supported
him, that Walt Tomski was an ob-
vious winner over Perryman .
One of the boys told us that Tomski
finished at least a stroke and a half
ahead of his foe and seemingly
waited at the end for Perryman to
arrive ...
Of such dramatic force was the re-
lay wind-tip, with Haynie and
Macionis in a 100-yard stampede to
decide the meet, the enire Michigan
squad crowded the edge of the Yale

Is Warm-Up Tilt
The' contest will serve as a sti
warm-up tilt for the Wolverines, who
are looking ahead to their clashes
witi the strong Minnesota outfit next
Thursday and Saturday nights in the
Coliseum. The championship of the
Sig Ten will hinge on the outcome of
those frays and consequently Coach
Lowrey does not want his boys to
take any unnecessary risks of in-
juries tonight.
The Varsity has been strengthened
by the addition of the veteran George
Cooke who will team up with Evie
Doran and Ed Chase 'on the second
line. But the visitors will be ham-
pered by the size of the London rink
as it is 28 feet -shorter than that of
the Coliseum.
Continue Scoring Duel
The game will see the continuance
of the brilliant scoring battle Gib
James and Smack Allen are waging.
In ten games each had scored 25
points and each added three points
Wednesday night as the Wolverines
urnedlback Paris (Ont.) H. C. for
Iaichigan's sixth victory in seven
tarts against Canadian teams.
It is expected that a new scoring
mark will be set this season by the
winner of the individual battle as both
Gib and Smack are slightly over Gib's

ing record of 45 points.

Don Nichols, Michigan light heavy-

Michigan wrestler finished strong to
win the decision.
Wolf Puts Up Battle
Wolf, another previously undefeat-

The Gophers present their new
scoring combination tonight which
clicked so convincingly against Il-
linois last Saturday. Gordon Adding-
ton and Marty Rolek will be at the
forwards, Gordon Spear at center,
and George "Butch" Nash and Paul
Maki at the guards.
Out of the starting lineup is Min-
nesota's captain John Kundla who,
has been benched in favor of Rolek,
an ex-guard.
The relegation of flashy Johnny,
whose 106 points placed him fifth in
the Conference scoring race last year,
to the bench has caused surprise in
some quarters. Various reasons have
been suggested for the move, among
them a rumor that Kundla's cocki-
ness and eccentricities created dis-
favor. Be that as it may, he'll see
some service tonight.
Rolek is an excellent defensive man
but falls short of Kundla offensively.
Addington, his running mate, is a
speedy mite and a good shot, having
tallied 99 points in Conference com-
petition last year to garner eighth
place among the scorers.
Big Spear, whose height will aid
the underslung Gopher five, draws

ing Capt. Jake Townsend of Michi-

Maki and Nash are guards of av-
erage ability in there mainly because
of defensive prowess.
Coach Dave McMillan, unlike
Michigan's Cappy Cappon, has eight
capables whom he can call on for
duty. Besides the.first five and Kund-
la, Bob Manly, a lanky center re-
placement, and Ed Dick, reserve
guard, can be confidently used.

Adamick Narrowly

NEW YORK, Feb. 18.--(A)-"Jimmy
Adamick, youthful Detroit heavy-
weight carried off the decision to-
night over Harry Thomas, the pug-
ilistic "trial horse" from Eagle Bend,
Minn., but nearly came to grief in
the tenth and last round of his New
York fistic debut. Adamnick's big
margin on points offset the veteran's
furious closing rally in the main bout
at Madison Square Garden.
The gallant finish of Thomas,
knockout victim of Germany's Max
Schmeling in the Garden last De-
cember, came as a surprise to the
"wise ones," who had predicted a
more decisive victory for the Michigan
boy, who entered the ring a 2 to 1

In Row; Engineers Hurt
By Loss OfCaptain
Immediately after their decisive win
over the Temple Owls, Coach Keen's
men left for Bethlehem, Pa., where
they will attempt to pick up their
fifth straight win, since their opening
defeat by Indiana.
Due to a severe cold Captain Dick
Bishop of the Lehigh squad will not
be able to meet Michigan's Harland.
Danner. However the remainder of
the Engineer's squad will be full of
of experienced men and the Wolver-
ines will find them offering more re-
sistance than did the Temple Owls.
Co-Captan John Specher will once
again meet Watler Allen at 118
pounds. Paul Cameron will come
against Burnett in the 126-pound
,Eivision, while Co-captain Earl Tho-
tnas, wrestling in his regular weight
class, 135 pounds, will meet Masem.
Jim Mericka will attempt to take
his third straight match when he
faces Ferry at 145 pounds. Harold
Nichols should have little trouble in
downing Hagerman of the Engineers
in 155 pound bout.
With Lehigh's loss of Capt. Bishop,
Harand Danner of the Wolverines will
undoubtedly take the 165-pound class.
At 175 pounds, Don Nichols, the Wol-
verine's outstanding sophomore, will
meet an experienced man in Curtis
Ford of the Engineers.

Ohio will be represented by an im-
posing array of talent. On paper
they appear to have too much bal-
ance for Coach Mann's squad, yet
few are willing to sell Michigan short.
Capt. Ed Kirar is in top form and
is expected to take top honors in the
50 and 100-yard free-style sprints.
Walt Tomski is always dangerous
and Wolverine followers will not be
too surprised if he chases Kirar home
in both the 50 and the century races.
Haynie Is Sure Winner
Tom Haynie is a safe bet to cop{
the 220 and 440-yard races. Ed Hut-
chens, sophomore star, will be Hay-
nie's swimming-mate in both races
mentioned and as he goes, so may go

known fact.
Sophomore John Haigh can pull a

the odds are against him.

The relay races may finally decide
the outcome of the meet. Michigan,
with three men who are at the pres-

for the 400-yard free-style event,

vored to score there. The medley will
be a toss-up with an Ohio trio of

as slight favorites.

Cage, Swim And Mat Teams



All Conference
Cage Quintets
To See Action
Ten Western Conference basketball
teams clash in 10 different games this
week-end. Curbstone coaches are
predicting a plethora of upsets and
practically every squad is chanting
the ake-old "and we're just the guys
to do it."
Matter of fact number one is that
there undoubtedly will be major
changes in the Conference standings
after the 10 contests. Matter of fact
number two is that regardless of the
outcomes of any of the games, there
are going to be some pretty tired
cagers throughout the circuit, come
Monday night.
One of the big games tonight is
the Northwestern-Indiana contest.
While the Purple are on top of the
heap with six and one, they'll have
their hands full stopping Andres,
Johnson and the rest of the Hoosier
quintet, who have a three and four
total in the win and loss column. The
Wildcats, in addition will be handi-
capped by the fact that Jim Currie,
veteran guard is down with the flu.
His absence tonight, along with the
loss of Bernie Jefferson through the
ineligibility bugaboo, leaves the
squad without any capable back line
The Chicago Maroons, who have
lost 33 straight Big Ten cage con-
tests, meet Iowa which has been for-
tified by its upset win over the Wol-
verines. However, Chicago has pro-
vided stiff competition for some of
the leaders this season and may pull
a surprise victory.
Probably the biggest contest on the
card tonight is the Wisconsin-Purdue
fray. The Boilermakers came out on
top in the first meeting of the two
squads this season by a matter of six
points. The Badgers have the home
floor advantage tonight and are a
vastly improved team compared to
early season showings, while their
opponents, with Jewell Young, their
pacemaker, decidedly off previous
showings, haven't shown all that
they have.
