Jim Braddock May Seven Student Boxers Will Fight
In Golden Gloves Bouts Tonight
NEW YORK, Jan. 24.-(AP)-A re-

Almost An 'Incident' .- -
COLUMBUS o., Jan. 24.-Had
Michigan scored in those last
frantic, tantalizing moments of the
Northwestern game Saturday night,
the resulant argument would have
been scalding hot and forever incon-!
solable to either Wildcat or Wolver-
ine partisans, depending upon which
side won the squabble.
Feature this setup: Northwestern
led by the slim one-point margin, 30-
29; and the clock showed a minute to
go. The timekeeper hadn't yet poised
his gun when Coach Cappon sent
Mannie Slavin dashing from the
bench. Either in downright excite-
ment, or in haste to save those pre-
cious seconds, Mannie still had his
sweat pants on when he zipped up
to the scorekeeper's desk, gesticulat-
ing wildly for time out.
The ball was out of bounds at
the time, but no one gave heed to
Mannie as the furious scramble
onthe court continued, with the
fans - by now hysterical - on
their feet screaming without dig-
nity and the Wolverines striving
desperately for a pop at that
hoop. Seconds elapsed and Ed
Thomas did get a pot at it, a long
arch from midcourt which ap-
peared true as a birdseye. The
ball banked off, seemingly per-
feet, but spun around the rjm
and then whirled out as if pro-
pelled by force.
Still, the Wolverines battled. Town-
send and Smick tipped the ball high
in. the air several times, but it would-
n't go through the rim.
By this time, even the usually im-
perturbable Cappon had dashed from
his bench over to the timer's desk,
demanding to know why time wasn't
called. Almost simultaneously, men
left the Northwestern bench, happily
waving their arms to indicate the
game was over.
Later, according to a Chicago
newspaper account of the episode,
Ade Schumacher, the timekeeper,
explained that his gun had Jam-
med, and the terrific din pre-.
vented him from attracting the
officials' attention. According to
Schumacher, the battle was
through before Thomas had tak-
en his long shot.
It would have required more
than artful explaining to con-
vince Cappy of that had Eddie's
shot been good.
Several years ago Wisconsin lost a
Big Ten title when Illinois in a simi-
lar situation scored a basket to beat
the Badgers after the gun had jam-
med and the timer had failed to get
the attention of the officials. And
the game Saturday night certainly
carried title considerations with it,
although this campaign is only half
over and as confusing as the Sino-
Japanese war.
In Old Chicago . .
CHICAGO Street Scene: A tooth-
less wretch, clothed in rags and
carrying a basket of firewood, ap-
proached unsteadily a distinguished
little man, who sure enough awaited
a street car, and berated him with
this gibberish:
Oh, so you're the mayor, huh!
Why don't you hire yourself a
hall . .. Take this box, here's my
box-and speak, you, you devil!
You think I'm drunk, huh!
I'm not drunk, I'm Democrat .. .
Ha, ha, ha ... Take your hands
out of your pocket! I got some-
thing in my pocket, too . . . You
The words hung in his throat. He
began to cough violently, a volumin-

ous, wracking cough, then reeled and
fell heavily to the street. The trolley
arrived, the distinguished little man
boarded it without glancing back.
Rising to his feet with great effort,
the wretch spat a chunk of blood
and tottered a few paces, turned in
an alleyway-out of sight.

Freshman Cagers
With Novel Basket
With its objective the improvement
of the game from a spectator's view-
point, a new type of basket has been
contrived and is. now being tested
out on the freshman basketball court
in the Intramural Building.
When a ball falls through this new
type of hoop a lever at the bottom
of the basket is forced down and
causes a red light to flash. In this
way fans in the most remote corners
of the gym can tell when a score is
made without waiting for the cheers
and the scoreboard.
If this new feature proves suc-
cessful with the freshman cagers the
Varsity may soon adopt it and it may
eventually be used in all Big Ten
However several of the yearling
cagers have different ideas on the
matter. Since the new contraption
requires a metal framework to sup-
port the lighting apparatus, the mesh
cords have been done away with,
and many of the boys are complain-
ing that they miss "the old familiar
