Puckmen Meet Minnesota In
Third Of Title Series
Exit Undue Orthodoxy.. ..
COMPLAINTS of undue orthodoxy
in Michigan football may be
somewhat minimized by the acquisi-
tion of Earl Martineau as head back-
field coach. In his Minnesota playing
days, before he was belabored with a
coach's responsibilities, Martineau
was noted for his little unorthodoxies.
He was a great halfback, however,
sufficiently great to warrant selection
on Walter Camp's 1923 All-American
team. But that didn't prevent him
from occasionally ignoring a few
athletic conventions which more than
anything else. saps sports of their
Martineau's left-handed com-
portment might have driven less
doughty coaches to hari-kari.
But his understanding coach was
tolerant and refused to discour-
age a rare individuality. "MartyV
as his Gopher contemporaries
used to call him, had no fear of
teasing the die-hards, and suc-
cess that he was, had no fear of
being ostracized or forgotten.-
Athletic Director Yost drew a dia-
gram the other day of one of Mar-
tineau's screwiest gridiron antics. It
was during a Michigan-Minnesota
game, and Marty started off his
right tackle with the ball. He found
his. path blocked, retreated a few
steps with the intention of sweeping
the end. But menacing Wolverine
tacklers bore down upon him, and in-
stead of cutting forward, he turned
toward his own goal and sped 20
yards backward, describing a wide
arc across the field until he was pro-
gressing forward again. A Michigan
man finally forced him out of bounds.
He picked up a few yards, even
though he had to run about 50 doing
A refreshing personality, Mar-
tineau is a welcomed addition to
the coaching staff. And though.
he may be a far cry from the live-
ly spirit of his undergraduate
days, he will be able to tolerate
and understand some back en-
gaging in a gambol, without dis-
missing him as a "screwball."

With Campbell Dickson's appoint-
ment as end coach, Fritz Crisler's
staff is rapidly taking shape. Only
the choice of a line coach remains.
Crisler wanted Tad Weiman, as the
wire below indicates, but Princeton
raised the ante. Now the new Wol-
verine coach must institute a search
for another assistant, whose name,
we venture, will be forthcoming short-
ly. Crisler's forthright manner sug-
gests early action.
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler received this
wire from Tad Weiman:
"I greatly appreciate efforts by
you and the Michigan adminis-
tration to work out a satisfactory
arrangement for me. Your offer
is attractive, the call of home
strong, and the opportunity ofI
continuing my most happy asso-
ciation with Fritz Crisler appeal-
ing. However the alternative
proposition here at Princeton is
too attractive and challenging to
ignore. My answer to you, there-
fore, must be no."

I Although Minnesota ballyhoo con-

to stop him, Michigan contemplates
his presence with bland indifference.

James, Allen Tied In Scoring Race
An added feature of the game will
be the scoring duel between fiery
Gib James and Allen. They are dead-
locked at 29 points apiece and will be
striving to outdo each other-but

scheme, not individual scoring hon-
Sophomore Spike James, yeoman

face one of the hardest shotmakers
in college in Ray Wallace, veteran left

the blue line.
Co-Capt. Loane Randall is the
Gopher center, a deft back-checker
and playmaker. The other captain,
Dick Kroll, patrols the blue line with
Mariucci and has counted three goals
and an assist in eight games thus far.
Michigan Is Undermanned
As always, Michigan will be com-
paratively undermanned. The re-
cent loss of Evie Doran from its
second line, because of scholastic dif-
ficulty, leaves Coach Eddie Lowrey
with Ed Chase, Les Hillberg and
George Cooke as forward replace-
ments. And Smith and Capt. Bob
Simpson have -no relief at the de-
The Varsity's chief worry will be
piercing the tough Gopher defense,
which proved nigh impregnable at
Minenapolis. Once inside the blue

should dupe Petrich enough to win.
That is based upon the presumption
that Simpson and Smith will keep,

circumstances, can keep Michigan in

Will Shatter A World's Record
By ROY REATH
Bill Watson, Michigan's "One man
track team" will shatter the world's
record for the 12 pound shot Satur-
day night. The present mark, set
recently by Ryan of Columbia is 60
feet 71/ inches.
That may sound dogmatic but it's
true nonetheless. Monday after-
noon the big boy picked up a 12
pounder for the first time since he
left high school. He looked at it and
longings stirred within him.
Before he quite realized what he
was about he gave it a gentle toss-
that almost tore down the west
bleachers. Onlookers came out of
hiding and the heave was measured.
Not so good, Bill thought, only 59
feet. Professor Phil Diamond, long-
time track critic who had witnessed
the ball sailing through the air
thought different, induced Bill to try.
The throwing ring was moved back
a few feet to save the bleachers and
a block of wood was laid at approxi-
mately 60 feet. Diamond settled him-
self in the same west bleacher that
Watson had almost demolished with
his first toss and prepared to witness
a world mark. His indiscretion al-
most cost him his neck.
Bill again picked up the 12 pound
ball, looked at it nestled in the palm
of his hand as the average man
would regard an apple which he is
about to nibble. His arm came back
and he took a quick shift across the
circle. The shot plummeted across
the Field House, struck the wood
marker a glancing blow and bounced.
Furious scrambling on the part of
the professor was all that kept the
missle from landing in his lap.
Undaunted, Professor Phil leaped
lightly from the bleacher and onto a
wooden rail-where he tripped and lit
on his face. After the excitement
had subsided, Watson's effort was
measured. It was 60 feet 6 inches--
one inch off the record without prac-
tice on the lighter weight.
There will be a new world's record(
chalked up Saturday night as soonI
as Bill wins his standard 16 pound
event, which won't take him long.
Iowa In, First
After traveling nearly 4,000 miles
on .the highways and railways to meet
three opponents in six days, Michi-
gan's Varsity swimmers will go
through their paces in short drill
this afternoon in the Intramural
pool, and tomorrow night will take on
Iowa's Jayhawk mermen in the first
home meet of the season. ~
The meet will start at 7:30 p.m.
in the I-M pool.
In their last engagement, with
Minnesota Tuesday, Coach Matt
Mann's weary natators won six events
to down the Gopher squad, 49 to 35.
Ed Kirar was high-point man with
firsts in the 50 and 100-yard dashes
and an effort on Michigan's victorious
400-yard relay quartet.
Johnny Haigh, sophomore breast-
stroker on the Wolverine crew swam
the fastest race of his brief college
career, to win the 200-yard race, and
appeared to be the only Wolverine
who escaped the effects of the rigors
As End Coach
Leaves Princeton To Joint
Martineau As Assistants
To New Grid Mentort
Fritz Crisler's reorganization of'
the Michigan football staff moved3
forward yesterday with the appoint-
ment of Campbell Dickson, formerlyl
his aide at Princeton, as end coach
here next season.
The appointment received the
sanction of the Board in Control of
Physical Education and insured Cris-
1er of the help of two of his Princeton
assistants next season. Earl Mart-
neau, another ex-Tiger, signed as
backfield coach Tuesday.
Unlike Martineau, Dickson will notj
work on a full time basis, his duties
being confined exclusively to footbal
Dickson succeeds Bennie Ooster-j
baan, end coach under Harry G. Kip-
ke, whose future status is undecided.
Oosterbaan also serves as assistant in
basketball and coaches the freshmen
The new appointee graduated from
the University of Chicago in 1924.
where he compiled a brilliant athletic
record. He played end on the foot-
ball team as a teammate of Crisler,
competed in the high jump in track,
and was co-captain of the basketball
team. He won a Conference medal
for athletic and scholastic proficiency
his senior year.
Dickson became assistant coach in
football, basketball, and track at
Minnesota following his graduation
in 1924 and served in this capacity
for one year.
From 1925 to 1928 he was assist-
ant football coach at his alma mater,
also serving as. the Maroon's : first
sports publicity director.
He graduated from the Chicago Law
School in 1928 and was admitted to
the Illinois bar.
Went To Princeton In 1932
The fall of 1928 found Dickson em-
ployed as head coach of football at
Beloit College. From 1928 to 1930 he
aided in football and served as ad-
visor in Alexander Meiklejohn's Ex-
perimental College at Wisconsin.
He diverged to a criminal law prac-
tice in Chicago in 1930, but 1931
found him back in football again,
this time as a scout for the Univer-
sity of California.
In 1932 he became a Crisler assist-
ant at Princeton, coaching the ends
and having charge of scouting. He
doubled as assistant basketball coach
in 1934, and 1937 and held this po-
sition in 1938 prior to his resignation
to join the new Michigan mentor.

With their conquest of the East'a
thing of the past, Coach Cliff Keen
and his Wolverinewrestlers have set-
tled down to' hard work in prepara-
tion for their continued onslaught in,
the midwestern wrestling circles.
On Saturday night the Ohio State
Buckeyes play host to the strong
Michigan outfit led by co-captains
John Speicher and Earl Thomas. The
Buckeyes lost a close match, their
first defeat of the season, last week
to Illinois, last year's Big Ten champs.
The Scarlet delegation will show the
most strength in the 135, 145, and 155
pound classes where Tuckey,-Mindlin,
and Peltier will fight in those respec-
tive weight divisions. These three
then have carried the brunt of all the
Buckeyes matches, along with Downes
their heavyweight entry.
So far this season Speicher, Har-
land Danner, Don Nichols, and Jim
wericka have clean slates to their
credit. In accumulating a total of 28
points for the Wolverines, Speicher
has won two matches by pins, three
by defaults and he won a referee's de-
cision at Lehigh.

The gigantic lead in the Big Ten
scoring race that Pick' Dehner
amassed earlier in the season faded
appreciably as a result of Confer-
ence contests this past week-end.
At the same time Jewell Young
made a strong bid for high point
honors for the second successive year.
Is Seven Points Behind
The Purdue pacemaker tallied 20
points in each of two games to bring
his total to 126, seven marks below
the Illinois leader.
Whether the Conference record
will be broken again this year is a
matter of conjecture. Both men have
averaged 14 points or better this sea-
son. However Dehner has lost a good
deal of his effectiveness in the last
few contests, so that it does not seem
probable that he will do much bet-
ter than 170, if that. On the other
hand, Young has increased his stride.
Two weeks ago he was averaging
only slightly over 11 per game.
Purdue Has Three Games Left
Also to the latter's favor is the fact
that the Boilermakers have three
games left on their schedule, con-
tests with Chicago, Indiana and
Northwestern. The Illini meet only
Indiana and Michigan.
Jake Townsend, who has been j
lingering in the lower half of the
list most of the season, boosted him-
self to fifth place and a 107 total by
virtue of the 17 point barrage he
hurled against the Badgers Mon-
The record this week bears con-
clusive evidence to the pre-season
belief that elimination of the center
jump would be reflected materially
in the scoring columns.
