Mahoney Scoffs At Idea
That IAAF Will Take
Any Positive Action
NEW YORK, Oct. 25.-(P)-Al
though officials here and in Europe
scouted the suggestion that Interna-
tional Amateur Athletic Federation
planned any sort of punitive action
against the Amateur Athletic Union
because of the latter's anti-Nazi
stand, an A.A.U. official revealed to-
day there had been some correspon-
dence on the subject.
Some time ago the Federation
wrote the A.A.U. inquiring why Ger-
many was not included in the itiner-
ary of its touring track and field
teams last summer and asked that
the A.A.U. change its attitude which
banned visits to Germany.
Reply Was Requested
A reply was requested by Oct. 18
in order that the I.A.A.F. could re-
move the matter fromits agenda be-
fore the annual meeting in London
next March.
Although the official did not say
whether a reply had been sent, he
doubted if anything could be done
before the annual A.A.U. meeting in
Boston Nov. 13-15.
He also expressed doubt that the
LA.A.F. intended to tatke punitive
Enter Curt Denials
In Europe, Bo Ekelund of Sweden,
secretary of the international body,
and General Giorgio Vaccaro, secre-
tary of the Italian Olympic commit-
tee, both entered emphatic denials.
Ekelund said reports that he had
suggested a ban against the A.A.U. at
the suggestion of Italan sports offi-
cials was "perfectly ridiculous." Gen-
eral Vaccaro termed them "absolute-
ly false and fantastic."
Jeremiah T. Mahoney, A.A.U. pres-
ident and leader of the anti-Nazi
movement in the A.A.U. could not be
reached for a statement today. Ma-
honey led a bitter fight to prevent
United States participation in the
1936 Olympics at Berlin. He was de-
feated on this question, but later
was elected A.A.U. president.
AAU To Consider
Metric System Ban
NEW YORK, Oct. 25.-(P)-For
the third year in succession, the Am-
ateur Athletic Union will consider
the abolishment of metric distances
in track events and return to yards
and miles when it convenes in its
49th convention at Boston, Nov. 13-
The proposal is one of the 76 pro-
posed amendments which appears in
the report of Chairman Albert F.
Wheltle of the legislation committee,
mailed today to the 400 delegates to
the convention.
Some progress was made last year
by the opponents of the metric sys-
tem of measuring when the rules
were amended, leaving it optional
with the district association. The
national indoor and outdoor cham-
pionships were about the only meets
in the country at which the events
were run at metric distances.
Basketball managers are asked
to report this evening at 7 p.m. to
the Intramural Building.
Players interested in trying out
for the Varsity are asked to report
at the same time and place with
own equipment.

I .

For I-MScoring
Winner Of 1936-37 RaceI
Presented With Trophyt
By Sports Editor
For his ability to amass 899 points
in intramural competition last year,1
Paul Keller, '40, Psi Upsilon, yester-
day was given the Michigan Daily
Individual Performance Award for
Intramural Athletics.
The Daily Award, which will con-
tinue as an annual feature, is the first
one ever given to an individual winner
in any intramural event. Keller
scored all his points by entering prac-
tically every activity sponsored by the
I-M department either as part of the
Psi Upsilon team or as an individual.
The fact that it was his first year in
school adds a great deal to the sig-I
nificance of the feat.
The presentation was made by Ir-
vin Lisagor, sports editor of the Daily
with Earl Riskey, assistant director of
the I-M department, representing
that department.
Although Keller was announced as
recipient of the award and winner of
the individual scoring title last spring
the date of announcement came too

CHAMPAIGN,, Ill., Oct. 25.-()-
Illinois, prepping for Michigan,
looked weak on defense and good on
offense today. Jay Wardley, who will
start at left halfback against the
Wolverines, had plenty of time pick-

regulars. Wardley and several other
backs broke away for numerous good
gains in a short scrimmage.
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 25.-(P)-
Speed and more speed was demanded
from the Minnesota football players
by Coach Bernie Bierman today when
he put the Gophers through a long,
hard workout in preparation for the
Notre Dame game Saturday. The
practice featured forward pass and
punting formations.
IOWA CITY, Ia., Oct. 25.-()-
Still suffering from their 7 to 6 loss
to Michigan Saturday, the Iowa
Hawkeyes went through a listless,
two-hour drill today and wound up
with a scrimmage against the fresh-

on defense.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 25.-
