Michigan Athletics followed the
business cycle this year but to a lesser
degree. There was no wild panic, no
extreme fall, but rather a slight down-
ward trend in the group as a whole.
Here are some of the high spots.
FOOTBALL: The Michigan State
game and a 19 to 14 defeat. Johnny
Pingel passing to Ole Nelson for two
touchdowns. Gene Ciolek evading
Don Siegel and then dashing 89 yards
f┬░r- the winning tally. Fred Trosko'
and Herc Renda collaborating for our
score-in vain..
We outplay Northwestern but lose 7
to 0 as Cleo Diehl catches a batted
down pass in the end zone. Remember
what Husing said about Siegel and
Brennan? Minnesota and the reign
of terror. Gedeon catches a pass for
-our first score, and then hell breaks
loose. 'Nuff said
- Remember Tyson's description of
the Iowa game, a drab affair which we
finally won 7 to 6. Trosko kicking the
extra point against Illinois without
even removing his helmet for another
7'to 6 win. Chicago and our derision
soon vanished. Ritchie's two touch-
down jaunts in the last four minutes
finally gave us a 13 to. 12 victory.
stark runs wild against Penn, but it
'takes a Ritchie-Purucker pass to
score a 7 to 0 victory.
Then Ohio State . . the snow ...
the ponderous Buckeye line. .valiant
efforts by Purucker and Heikkinnen
but to no avail . . . and a 21 to 0
loss. Post-season repercussions: Kip-
ke out, Crisler in.
*BASKETBALL: Jake Townsend's
last year, and we -slump after an au-
spicious start in the East. How they
ganged Jake, and yet he won all-
: aonference for the third straight
time, finished sixth in the scoring
with a new Michigan record (136
points), and gave the fans a memory
of a superb player and competitor-
one we won't soon forget. In retro-
spect: Cappy out, Ooosterbaan in.
HOCKEY: A great veteran in Gib
James and two swell sophomores in
Edwin "Smack" Allen and Gib's
brother Spike. A better than average
season with an even split at the hands
of our rabid rivals, Minnesota, a tie
-for the mythical mid-west title, and
a lot of thrills. Hope: That Smack
plays next year,
SWIMMING: It finally happened
--the end of Michigan's natatorial
supremacy. Out of Columbus, home
of Ohio State, came a swimming ma-
chine of tremendous power. And the
Buckeyes spelled finis to the reign of
Mann in the nation's swim annals.
After finally dumping Yale in a dual
meet, we lose twice to Ohio State,
they beat us again in the Big Ten, and
then came Matt's great coup. We win
the National Intercollegiates, nosing
ut the Buckeyes by a single point,
Sbut they get the last laugh in the Na-
tional A.A.U. by annexing the title, the
first college team ever to do so. Tops
on an excellent Michigan team: Capt.
Ed. Kirar and Capt-Elect Tom Hay-
WRESTLING: Cliff Keen finally
came home with that bacon. A strong
veteran outfit shakes off a defeat by
Indiana in their first match to win
every other meet and the Confernce
crown. Big Ten title winners: Co-
captain John Speicher, sophomore
Don Nichols, and junior Harland
Danner. Speicher . also copped the
National A.A.U. crown.

TRACK: Bill Watson and Co. and
still unbeaten. A typical Hoyt team
with enough stars and plenty of bal-
ance to gain those place points. Won
the, indoor Conference crown, will
probably win the outdoor. Watson,
starring in three events, showed su-
perlative ability and is easily the out-
standing man on an outstanding
team. Add stars: Fred Martin, javelin
thrower, Wes Allen, high jumper,
Ralph Schwartzkopf, who beat Lash
.and McCluskey in the Penn Relays,
and Elmer Gedeon, the ace hurdler
who doubles in baseball.
BASEBALL: A32 game schedule
and a tough one found wily Ray
Fisher with an erratic team. An even
split in the South, have won four
and lost seven in the North, and
plenty of games to go. ┬░Outstanding:
Dlan Smick's slugging, Walt _PeckinT
paugh's work in the field, and the
promising pitching of senior Ed An-

Boxing Squad Ready, Willing,
Able; WaitingFor Word 'Go'

Should boxing be made a regular
Varsity sport in the Big Ten tomor-
row, as it is in all the other major
conferences throughout the nation,
the move would not catch the Univer-
sity of Michigan napping.
The Wolverine's boxing coach, Ver-
non Larson, has under his instruction
the makings of.a, first class squad; a
squad which, with a littlesmore ex-
perience behind it, could be moulded
into a championship outfit. AndLar-
son developed the majority of these
boys himself.
Siegel Number One
Number one heavyweight -on this
mythical team would be Big Don
Siegel, tackle on the football squad
and one of the state's leading amateur
fighters. As a freshman Don was
taken into instruction by Larson and
taught everything he knows about
boxing. From a crude novice, he de-
veloped and learned fast. Within one
year he was the state Golden Gloves
novice heavyweight king. Out of 11
fights Don has won eight by the
knockout route.
Since Michigan has no boxing team,
Siegel is retiring from the ring even
though it was reported that Promoter
Jack Kearns was getting interested in
Roots Hot
In the light heavyweight class Don
Cash would be the man to fill the bill.
Cash advanced to the finals of the
local Golden Gloves tournament and
Showed possibilities of development.
The Root brothers, Tom and Sam,
,ould capably take care of the middle-
weight and welterweight positions on
the squad. These boys won the local
Golden Gloves championships in their
:espective classes and were only beat-
:n out in the state-wide finals. To
say that their wins at the local Ar-
mory were decisive, would be gross
understatement. They both scored

first round knockouts, Sam putting '
his opponent away with one punch.
Young Vs. Rodnick
Lightweight Mike Rodnick would be'
another tough lad to beat. Mike was
judged the most outstanding fighter
in Ann Arbor's tourney and won the
lightweight title with ease. He is an-
other boy who was never in a ring
before coming to the University. Mike
would have to battle for his position'
on the team with Virgil Young, clev-
er colored fighter, who is also a hot
Featherweight Ken Chernin showed
enough in the Golden Gloves tourney
to rate as the leading featherweight
contender. The only entry needed now
is a bantamweight. Doubtless Larson{
could soon find or develop one.

among others Ralph Flanagan, Peter

Read It In The Daily

One of the least known athletic ac-
tivities on campus, and yet one of the
best known throughout the state is
the gymnastics exhibition team.
During the school year this team is
always on the go, traveling from one
exhibition to another. It is as the beck
and call of any individual or civic or-
ganization in this part of the state.
The team is made up of six under-
graduates. All of these men work
out regularly. Nearly every afternoon
during the winter season over 30 men

Elmer Townsley.
Each man has his own individual
speciality, and, at the same time, is
entirely conpetent on all other pieces
of apparatus. As individuals and as
a team they rank with the best in
the middle west.
In order to find material for his
team two meets are held each season
in Waterman Gym. In these meets
all men on the campus who are in-,
terested are invited to compete and
from these the six best are chosen
to make up the team.
