The Herald Angels . .
TEACE ON EARTH, goodwill to-
ward men ..
Cynicism has no place in the at-
tractiveness of youth, we've heard,
but pick up a metropolitan and get
a eyeful of its headlines and then
contemplate the biting mockery of
the lines above. War, robbery, coach-
mng squabbles and other repulsive
items smack you in the eyes. Withal,
however, you have the feeling that
everybody will live ...
In the past sports editors of the
Daily have written "ghost" letters to
Santa Claus and attached coaches'
names to them. But that seems de-
ciddly out of place now, with the
things a bit warm and disgusting.
Home-near the hearth and your
people-is the best haven we know,
and at the Yuletide season, the one
spot where a bit of relief might be
Dots And Dashes .
Louis Levine, Varsity gridder, had
part of his holiday spoiled yesterday
when University hospital doctors re-
lieved him of an appendix . . . Won-
der if the Detroit Times tried to get
him out of the ether to question
him on the football situation ? ? ?
When Sammy Baugh arrived at his
professional football camp, with a
remarkable reputation for pitching
footballs all over the lot as a colle-
gian at Texas Christian, his "pro"
coach warned him: "We don't throw
the ball wildly around here. First,
spot a man in the open, then hit him
in the eyes with that ball." A stdy
in naivete, Baugh replied matter-of-
factly "Which one?" -. -

Writers Term
Gomez 1937,
Comeback Star
Annual Poll Gives Yankee
Ace Edge Over Guldahl,
Louis And Goodman
NEW YORK, Dec. 16.- (P) -The
country's sports writers put their
stpinp of approval today on Vernon
(Goofy) Gomez as the hero of 1937's
most amazing athletic comeback.
Casting their ballots in the Asso-
ciated Press' seventh annual poll, the
writers gave the New York Yankees'
star southpaw pitcher a decisive edge
over Ralph Guldahl, U.S. Open Golf
champion, and Joe Louis, King of
the World's Heavyweight boxers.
Nineteen of the 53 participating
writers cast their first-place ballots
for Gomez who, after two lean years,
came back to lead the American
League in effectiveness and pitch the
Yankees to two World Series vi-
tories over the New York Giants.
All told Gomez picked up 69 points
in the balloting against 40 for Gul-
dahl who received nine first-place
* votes. Louis was third with 34 points
and Johnny Goodman fourth with 26.
Although the writers mentioned no
fewer than 43 individuals only four of
these were women.
Tabulation of the poll (points on a
3-2-1 basis as each writer made three
nominations in order of his prefer-

AKRON, 0., Dec. 16.-(MP-Michi-
gan University's Wolverines opened
their road trip with a 32 to 27 tri-
umph over Akron University's Zip-
pers here tonight.
They found the Akronites a stub-
born foe, carrying the fight into the
Wolve's camp from the opening
But Michigan's intricate criss-cross
offensive finally cracked the Akron
'defense although the margin was
never wide.
The Wolverine's paced by Leo
Beebe, a guard, led the Zippers 21
to 16 at half time. Their rally in the
final 11 minutes of the game after the
Zippers had pulled up within 22-21,
ripped the Zipper defense wide open.
It was by far their flashiest offensive

Michigan's basketball contingent
rings out the old year and heraldsl
the new with the three toughest
games of its current basketball tour.
The first two contests, Akron and
Maryland, are more or less build-ups
for the Wolverines. In Dartmouth
they hit their first real opposition,
while Rochester is not far behind.
Their concluding games-both in
1938-should really test the Varsity's
true merit, for their. opponents, To-
ledo and Butler, are both of high
Rochester Is Tall, Experienced
Having appraised the first three
Michigan foes, let's survey the final
half of the schedule.
ROCHESTER: (Dec. 21). The'
most underrated of the Wolverine
opponents. A big (they average over
six feet), rangy, experienced quintet
with abundant scoring power and a
real star in Capt. Bud Spies, who ran
up 135 points in 13 games last year.
Spies is fast and aggressive and uses{
his height to advantage.
Five Victorious
In All-Campus
Wresting Meet
Close. hard-fought matches were
the order, as the All-Campus wrest-
ling tournament drew to a close yes-
terday afternoonwith champions
crowned in fiVe classes.
Tim, Hird, Lake wood, Ohio junior,
scored a mild upset when he nosed
out Lilburn Ochs; veteran from last
year's Varsity, in an overtime match,
to take the 175 pound title. Hird
held a 1-0 advantage at the end of
the extra period, and established him-
self as an outstanding contender for.
a regular spot in the Varsity line-up.
Savilla Wins Heavyweight Crown
Joe Savilla was crowned heavy-
weight champion when he threw
Marshall Loughlin, ex-Ann Arbor
High School ace, in 1:34 of the over-
time period. The Varsity football
star was at a slight disadvantage
throughout, because of his limited
knowledge of the game, but his su-
perior stamina, gained through the
strenuous Big Ten grid schedule, fin-
ally told the tale.
Jim Mericka, a probable Varsity
man, was the lone repeater in the
tourney, throwing freshman Andy
Sawyer, with a crotch and half nel-
son in 1:35, to retain the 135 pound
title for the second semester.
Mosser Loses Title
Carl Mosser, last year's 145 pound
winner, did not fare so well and lost
his crown to John Paup, another out-
standing freshman who learned his
grappling at Ann Arbor High. Paup's
advantage was 11 points to four.
An all-freshman 155 pound final,
saw Doug Jeffreys eke out a 10-6 ad-
vantage over Dick Hanslip. Jefreys
had previously scored the tourney's
biggest upset when he defeated Rex
Lardner of the Varsity squad in the

His running mate at the forward
post will be either Bob Ulreck, a
lively six foot two inch sophomore, or]
Bob Cohen, flashy junior. Ulreck is
also a strong candidate for the cen-
ter job and the starting forward
berth will therefore probably go to
Cohen. The other two regulars are
Ed Mee, junior, and Prep Lane, the
fourth Rochester cager in the six foot
Play Zone Defense1
The team plays a zone defense and
excels in its rebound game, which
proved to be Michigan's nemesis
against Michigan State last week.
CHUCKOVITS: (Jan. 1). No, this
isn't a typo. We're referring to To-
ledo University and their forward
phenom Chuck Chuckovits. This sen-
sational junior is, from all reports,
the ultimate in scoring perfection.
Last Tuesday night he cracked a na-
tional record by scoring 17 baskets
and seven fouls for 41 points as his
team romped to an 84 to 18 victory
over Adrian.
Now Michigan isn't Adrian and
there's no doubt that the gent with
the alliterated name will be held to
something less than 41 points. But
the degree of reduction has a lot of
people worried.
Sophomore Pat Hintz pairs up with
Chuck at the forward posts, Will
Swinhart holds down center honors,
and Al Alvarez and Les Gast com-
plete the regular five at the guards.
Along with Michigan, the Rockets
have scheduled games with touted
Long Island and Ohio State. They
are definitely a big time aggregation.
Butler Always Tough
BUTLER: (Jan. 3). Always tough
and this year is no exception. They
grow them tall down in Hoosierdom,
and this crew of six footers is a
representative group.
At the forwards are Loren Joseph,
six feet two and one-half inches, and
Willard Fawcett, a midget of five feet
ten. Fawcett, the . comparatively
diminutive forward, is a speed mer-
chant of repute, while Joseph is a
dangerous floor man.
Big Bill Merrill, lanky feed artist,
is the team's center, and Chester
Jaggers and George Perry, over six
feet of course, hold down guard jobs.
Perry won all-state honors last year.
By January 3, the Wolverines
should be well warmed-up and im-
bued with the determination to start
off the New Year right. They'll needl
it for Butler!
