(Editor's Note: It didn't take long
after yesterday's piece for the. Heydt
evidence to come forward. As expect-
ed the factual material that had been
unavailable now becomes readily ac-
cessible. Today, Mel Fineberg, who has
worked assiduously on this matter ever
since its inception, presents conclu-f
sive evidence that any criticism of
ethics in the case is absolutely unjusti-
Matt Mann has been accused, both'
by innuendo and directly, of being1
the motivating force behind the
transfer of Francis Heydt, second
ranking collegiate back stroker last
year, from the University of Iowa to
* The Ohio State Journal epitomized
the thought that was prevalent in the
minds of swimming fans. In a col-
umn by R. E. Hooey, it purported
to have Heydt approach Mike Peppe,
Ohio State coach, and ask Peppe
what he had to offer. Heydt ,was
supposed to have said "I'm looking
for cash." Peppe advised him to re-
tArn to Iowa. Then it had Peppe
reading that Heydt had transferred
to Michigan; the innuendo was ap-
parent-Matt Mann had made him
an attractive offer.
When contacted by The Daily,
Mike Peppe denied that cash had
been mentioned but that Heydt had
asked about the possibilities of a job
Peppe went on to say "I'm not ac-
cusing Matt of anything. But it does
look queer. First td Kirar trans-
ferred from Wisconsin, then Baker
Bryant leaves Ohio for Michigan
(Peppe admitted that Matt had noth-
ing to do with Bryant's transfer) and
then Heydt turns up at Ann Arbor.
It just looks bad."
And it did look bad. It looked
bad in spite of the fact that at
Michigan it was common gossip
that Matt Mann didn't even know
Kirar's name when he came here
and that Matt had known of
Heydt's intention of coming to
Michigan two years ago and had
advised him to stay at Iowa.
The Daily presents what would be
conclusive proof that Matt Mann is
innocent of all complicity in the
Heydt transfer.
A letter from Matt Mann to Iowa's
swimming coach Dave Armbruster,
dated Feb. 6 before Heydt's regis-
tration here:
"I see by the paper that Heydt is
leaving school because of illness. I
know how much you depended on
him. I certainly hope that he gets
back there. You know what I mean.
He certainly will get no encourage-
ment from this end as I feel that he
owes you a great deal more than what
he has given you."
Armbruster's answer, dated Fei. 13,
after Heydt's transfer:
"I appreciate your frank state-
ment in your recent letter and
the effort you have made to dis-
courage Heydt from going to
Michigan. I really do not place
any blame at your door whatso-
ever, inasmuch as anyone who
would know Heydt and his pe-
culiarities could easily appre-
ciate the fact that the boy has
instigated this entire arrange-
ment. I am replying (to Big Ten
coaches who asked him) that as
far as we are concerned the in-
cident is closed."
When contacted by The Daily at
the Big Ten meet at Purdue last Fri-
day, Armbruster refused to comment,

saying : "It is out of my hands now."
And now Heydt's side of the story:
"I came here of my own free
will. N1o one at Michigan knew I
was comning. Why I'm not getting
a thing here. I left jobs in Iowa
which as a freshman paid me
from $33 to $35 a month in cash.
I had an NYA job to which there
was no work attached; in the
summer I was a life-guard and
that meant swimming; in the off-
months I ran a motor boat up
and 'down the river on a Red
Cross motor patrol. I leftit all to
come to swim under Matt. I want
to swim on the Olympic team and
I didn't think I could make it by
staying up at Iowa."
Good as Heydt is, Matt Mann has
no reason for wanting him here. In
sophomores Charlie Barker and Bill
Beebe and freshman Dick Reidl,
Mann has more back stroke material
than he needs. Sitting on top of the
swimming world, Matt knows only
too well how anxious others are to
have something to pin on him. Matt
Mann had no reason to lay himself
"Sure Heydt came here," said Matt.
"And do you know why? For the
same reason other kids that want to
learn to swim come here. See that
board? (The board showed 10 Big
Ten titles in the last 14 years and 9
National Collegiate crowns in 12
years). That's why they come here.
They come to learn how to swim. And
I teach them."

Crowd (
Three Coveted
Trophies Won
By Sigma Chi
Sigs Capture 'A,' 'B' Cage
Titles And Swimming;
Phi Psi Wins Hockey
The 11th annual Spring Open
House of the I-M Department last
night provided an evening's enter-
tainment for a crowd of over 2,000.
Interest centered on the basketball.
swimming, and shuffle hockey events.
In the finals of the "B" fraternity
basketball division, Sigma Chi re-
tained its title by easily defeating
Phi Delta Theta 14-6. The winners
outclassed the Phi Delts throughout
the contest by their fast breaks and
sharp passing.
At the end of the half, Sigma Chi
led 10-4. For the winners, Bud Piel
led the scoring with five points and
for the Phi Delts, Jim Clark scored
five of the six points.
Win 'A' Title
Exactly one hour laer the Sigma
Chi "A" team gave that fraternity a
clean sweep in the basketball cham-
pionships by a 23-14 victory over
Theta Xi. The half score was 10-8
in favor of Sigma Chi.
Jack Cory lead the Sigma Chi team
in scoring with eight points, and he
was closely followed by his fellow
mate, Max Schoetz, who scored sev-
en. For the losers, John Lamb scored
six. This is the first time in Intra-
mural history that one fraternity has
won both titles.
In the independent "A" finals, the
Senators defeated the Badgers 32-24.
For the victors, Bob Smolenski rolled
up 17 points. #
And Then Swimming
For their third win of the night,
Sigma Chi annexed the fraternity
swimming crown by summing up 23 /2
points to 13 of its nearest rival and
last year's champ, ATO. Other
point scorers were Psi Upsilon 11,
Phi Gamma Delta 9, S.A.E. 6 1/3 Al-
pha Sigma Phi 6, Sigma Phi Epsilon
3, and Lambda Chi Alpha and Phi
Delts one each.
Sigma Chi started off the evening
winning the 200-yard free style relay
in 1:50.5. Continuing, they took two
firsts and two seconds. The firsts
were by Don Siegel in the 100-yard
free style and Dave Dale in the 50-
yard free style, with the times of
:65 and :26.2 respectively.
Other firsts for the night were
Malcolm Lang, A.T.O., 50-yard breast
stroke in 32.5 seconds, Earl Rhodes,
Sigma Phi Epsilon, 220-yard free
style in 2:49, Whit Aldridge, Alpha
Sigma Phi, 50-yard backstroke in 32
seconds and Phi Gamma Delta in the
150 yard medley relay in 1:41.4.
Shuffle Hockey Shown
The demonstration of shuffle hoc-
key by a group from Flint High
School under the direction of the
originator of the game, Frank Coluc-
-i, was one of the novel events which
attracted quite a number of specta-
tors. The game was played on one of
the basketball courts, which was bor-
dered with benches.
Lawton Hammett retained his fall
all-campus tennis title by defeating
Tom Gamon in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2.
Hammett outplayed his opponent all
the way through the two sets, and
his superior net game supplied him
with sufficient points to easily win.
The Chinese students, the perennial
Michigan volleyball champs, proved
their right to be so-called when they
defeated a team made up of picked

foreign students. The Chinese played
steady ball to win by 1110, 8-15, and
17-15. In the other volley ball match
of the evening, the all-star fraternity,
volved; from Matt Mann, the ac-
cused, from Francis Heydt the pro-
tagonist and from Dave Armbruster
the one man who could clear Matt.
And it must be obvious that Matt
was completely innocent of any com-
plicity in Heydt's transfer.

ent team, 15-6, 15-7.t
Tennis coach Leroy Weir, runner'
up in last year's National A.A.U.
squash championships, showed the
gallery speed and form in beating
John Reindell, state champion, 3-1
in repeating last year's victory. Weir
took the first two games, 15-10 and
15-12, but Reindell came back in
the third game to win 15-12, and the
final game went to Weir, 15-12.
Riskey Loses Match,
Earl Riskey dropped his match to
Joseph Hahn, Jr., 3-2, but Sumner

two years, gave the Wolverine rac-
quet men the edge for the evening
with a 3-2 decision over Hal Smith,
The exhibition wrestling match be-
tween Paul Cameron, former Wolver-
ine mat star, and Jim Mericka, star
of this year's team, was a real treat.
Under the names of Zybaskia and
Taskamazni, the boys gave quite a
show, including all the grunts and,
groans, eye-gouging, strangling, etc.
The referee, Dick Tasch, acted bored
throughout the match.
Wrestling Results
The all-campus results are as fol-
lows: Art Schoenberg defeated John
Borwell, 12-8. B. Brion pinned Bill
Saulson in 3:24 with a half nelson
and body block and Al Holmes de-
feated Jack Burns, 12-4.

Ochs, 15-14, 15-12, and Frank Scott
defeated Doug Baker, 15-9, 15-2, to
annex the grad crown.
Phi Kappa Psi, winners of the
fraternity hockey first place cham-
pionship, assumed the role of all-
campus champ, by deafting the Hia-
watha Club, independent champs, in
a thrill-packed contest, 4-3.

Former Major
League Stars
Turn To Radio
Johnson, Frisch Contract
To Air Contests; Laabs
Furnishes Tiger News
GERMANTOWN, Md., March 15.-
()-Time did a back flip today as
Walter Johnson, one of baseball's im-
mortals, packed a couple of suitcases
for spring training.
The big pitcher who won more
games than any man in the Ameri-
can League's history wasn't packing
for a comeback, he was answering the
call of the radio.
Beginning April 17 when President
Roosevelt throws out the first ball
for the opening game of the season
between the World Champion Yan-
I kees and the Senators, Walter will
start broadcasting the Washington
a games.
BOSTON, March 15. --iP)-Frank
Frisch, former manager of the St.
SLouisCardinals, signed a one-year
contract today to broadcast play-by-
play descriptions of all home games
jof the Boston Bees and Boston Red
Sox during the coming season.
A loophole was left in the contiact
for Frisch to resign in case an oppor-
tunity to manage a major league club
turns up.
LAKELAND, Fla., March 15.-(P)~--
Chet Laabs hit a triple with the bases
loaded today to give the regulars a
6 to 5 victory over the recruits in the
last of a five-game series of intra-
squad practice games at the Detroit
Tigers' winter quarters.
Laabs' blow came in the third and
gave the regulars enough margin to
withstand a three-run rally by the
recruits in the seventh.
Tommy Bridges and Floyd Giebell,
a youngster from Evansville, toiled on
the mound for the regulars, and the
railbirds agreed that Bridges was in
mid-season form. Bridges allowed
only two hits and one run during his
turn. Giebell, working the mound for
the first time in the Tiger camp, al-
lowed seven hits in three innings, but
it was agreed that he had a good
fast ball and a form like Lefty Gomez.
George Gill and Roxie Lawson
pitched for the recruits. Gill allowed
seven hits in four innings, while Law-
son was touched for only one. +
Hank Greenberg and Rudy York
were in good shape, Hank getting two
singles and Rudy three.

One of the most colorful of athletic
events attracts the Michigan track
team this Saturday when the Hoyt-
men travel to Indianapolis for the
seventh annual running of the Butler
Relays and their last indoor appear-
ance of the year.
The evening's program, which is
expected to draw a crowd of 10,000 to
the spacious Butler University Field
House, will be inaugurated by a par-
ade of all the athletes competing in
the Relays. The Queen of the Carni-
val will then parade with her court to
the center of the Field House, where
from her throne she will preside over
the evening's festivities.
Queen Presents Trophies
After the Queen has taken her
throne and everything is in readiness,
the flag will be raised, the band will
play the national anthem and the
meet will start.
After each event the program calls'
for the first, second, and third place
winners to be summoned to the
Queen's throne by trumpeters where
they will receive their trophies. If
Charlie Hoyt's boys perform as well
before the pulchritude of Indianapolis
as they did for the Windy City beau-
ties last weekend, they will receive
the trumpeters' summons with most
pleasing regularity.
But aside from the colorful pro-
gram arranged for the entertainment
of the spectators, another angle will
create plenty of interest and that is
the attempt of some 25 other schools
to stop Michigan's Wolverines who
have won the team championship for
the past five years.
Indiana First Winner
The first year the Relays vere held,
in 1933, the team title was won by
Indiana, but Charlie Hoyt's teams
have dominated the Relays since then
and will, by virtue of their latest Big
Ten conquest, enter this year's meet
again the favorite to repeat.
Several Big Ten teams have entered
men as well as Pittsburgh, Notre
Dame, Marquette, Rice Institute and
Michigan State.
Although Michigan won the cham-
pionship with 40%/ points last year,
the only Wolverine winners were Bill

to surprising defeats in both the 60-
yard high and low hurdles, but he will
be favored to annex both titles thiss

Borican Sets 880 Record
HANOVER, N.H., March 15.-(RP)-~
John Borican, speedy Elberon, N.J.,
Negro, set a new indoor record to-
night for the half-mile event by lead-
ing Bob Unangst, of Dartmouth, who
had a 95-yard handicap, by 10 yards
while being clocked in 1:49.8 on Dart-
mouth's lighting fast boards.

Awaits Wolverine Track Team

Doherty Squad
Frosh Track Team Gains
Second Victory, 53-45
Coach Ken Doherty's promising
freshman track team chalked up its
second "postal" track meet victory
in as many starts when they defeat-
ed the Wisconsin frosh last week by
the score of 53-5/16 to 45-1/16.
Johnny Kautz, former Chicago
high school half-mile king, accounted
for nine of the Wolverines' points by
romping home to victory in the half-
mile run and tying for first place in
the quarter-mile. Kautz' time of 1:-
58.9 over the 880-yard course tied the
freshman Field House record for that
distance set by Tom Jester in 1937.
Another noteworthy feat was per-
formed by Jim McGhee, Pontiac
speedster, who turned in a :06.4 in
the 60-yard dash to tie for first place
! in that event.
The remaining first places were
registered by Al Thomas, Bill Dan-
