Climax Gaines This Weekc
To Have Vital Bearing;
Ritchie Is Listed
NEW YORK, Nov. 17.-UP)-The
All-America debate for 1937 ap-
proaches the semi-final stage with
the contest for most positions on the
mythical collegiate gridiron squad
still very much in doubt. Climax
'games this week and next will have*
vital bearing on the outcome of the
race for all-star honors.
Of last year's two All-America
holdovers, Yale's mighty captain,
Clinton Edward Frank of Evanston,
Ill., seems a certain repeater. Frank
has played amazing football this sea-
Ison under all conditions as well as
,heavy pressure.
The East, with five unbeaten teams
in the nation's "First Ten," has pro-
duced an outstanding crop of backs,
;tackles and ends this year. By con-
trast the Middle West and especially
the Big Ten has not contributed as
much material as usual to the all- I
'star debate. The old South has pro-
duced exceptional ends and linemen.
The Southwest has developed a flock
of fine backs and ends.
Here's a partial sectional summary
of the principal prospects:
East-Pick of the "Ivy League"
talent includes Cornell's Brud Hol-
land, Negro end; Dartmouth's Bob
MacLeod, fleet halfback; Pittsburgh's
Marshall (Biggie) Goldberg, power-
house halfback, Tony Matisi, tackle,
and Frank Southak, end; and Fords
ham's Alex Wojciechowicz, center,
and two superb tackles, Ed Franco
and Al Babartsky.
Big Ten--Minnesota lost a poten-
tial All-American back, Andy Uram,
who broke his wrist in mid-season,
but the Gophers have three stand-
'outs up forward in Captain Ray
King, end; Francis Tweddel, guard;
and Lou Midler, tackle. Harold Van.
Every, sophomore Minnesota back,
has shared Conference ball-carry-
ing honors with Jim McDonald of
Ohio State, best known for his block-
ing; Corby Davis, Indiana; Cecil
Isbell, Purdue; Don Heap, Northwes-
tern; and Stark Ritchie, Michigan.
One of the most promising sophomore
backs is Nile Kinnick of Iowa. George
Miller, Indiana center, has been con-
spicuous for his place-kicking.

InOlympic Say
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17.-(P')-
Colleges won equal representation
with the Amateur Athletic Union
today on committees controlling
American competitors in eight major,
sports at the Olympic Games.
The American Olympic Associa-

Collegiate Athletic Association six
members each on committees in
charge of men's track and -field
events, men's swimming, men's gym-
nastics, boxing, wrestling, basketball,
field handball and ice hockey.
It provided also that a thirteenth
member should be appointed by the
Olympic Association's president, sub-
ject to approval by two-thirds of the
other committeemen.
In the past the A.A.U. has had the
main say concerning almost all Olym-
