In The RingĀ®.-.
Don Siegel makes his second pro-
fessional appearance at the boxing
plate next Friday on the Bob Pas-
tor-Roscoe Toles card at Arena Gar-
dens. The rangy Michigan tackle
will go to bat against a 240-pound
Saginaw. slugger surnamed Slachta,
Christian name unknown and second
name probably misspelled by the
linotyper. , It is claimed (by Slachta)
that he is the proud possessor of a
left hook but this remanis to be seen.
In spite of the deprecatory re-
marks passed by some of the met-
ropolitan newspapermen about
Siegel's inexperience Vern Lar-
son has high hopes for the pro-
fessional future of his protege.
According to Larson, "Siegiel is
not yet a finished fighter; he's
still awkward and inexperienced.
But he's got the stuff. I believe
that he'll go places fast. With-
in one year he's going to be
fighting for $1,000 a match."
It sounds possible. With the pau-
city of material in the heavyweight
ranks today, a man with Siegel's
natural abilities could go far. When
Two-Ton Tony Galento, who is bet-
ter able to mangle the English lan-
guage than any boxing opponent of
calibre, is named the outstanding
challenger in the ranks they certain-
ly make no mistake when they call
it "ranks."

Word comes over the wire that the
"greatest horse in years," Johnstown,
was beaten in the Preakness. Now we
don't claim to know too much about
the inside of horse racing but This
Corner wants to state right now that
we were probably the only ones in
the country with courage to come
right out in the open and pick Chal-
ledon who won today. We were so
good that we called the winner over
a week ago.
Of course, modesty compels us
to admit that we had Challedon
picked for the Kentucky Derby
which was run a week ago. Chal-
ledon ran second to Johnstown
at Churchill Downs, but it does
show that we had the right idea,
and it was a week early at that.
We sent our Derby betting tick-
ets to the Preakness by air mail
in hopes they'll pay us for our
faith. It seems only fair that they
should reward such foresight.
True Loyalty.. ..
We have just received concrete evi-
dence that there is still some faith in
what Sec Terry terms "a world gone
barbaric." It was just after the De-
troit Tigers had lost their tenth game
in eleven starts. One of The Daily
cronies turned to a rabid Tiger rooter
and crowed triumphantly, "Well,
what do you think of your Detroit
team now? I think they smell."
The fugitive from a box score
mournfully, yet loyally, replied,
"Aw, they ain't so bad. They're
just misunderstood."
The combination of the two leads
us to think of the situation at Pitts-
burgh and the resignation of Dr. Jock
Sutherland who turned out the na-
tion's top teams while coaching there.
And while we're at this point, we
might as well make a prediction as
to the fate of the good Dr. Suther-
land. He will stay out of football for
a year. He will confine himself to
writing for magazines and broad-
casting. He will do this because there
is no coaching opening at a large

school. Then, after a year of inactiv-
ity, he will become head coach at The
University of Southern California
where the opposition to Howard
Jones will demand the change.
The anti-Jones faction has
been quieted by the Trojan vic-
tory over Notre Dame last year,
but it may pop up with a poor
season next year and the change
might come.

Bob Westfall smashed over from
the one yard line to start the scoring
in the first 'period after Norm Call
had carried it there on a 10-yard
pass from David Strong. A few min-
utes later Call again scored for the
Yellows when he ran 40 yards for a
touchdown after intercepting a Blue
pass. Strong made the score 13-0
when he kicked the extra point.
Opening the second stanza the
Blues scored twice and made the trys
for the extra points to take a 14-13
lead at half time. A pass from Kromer
to Czak scored the third straight
touchdown for the Blues in the third,
and they ended their scoring for the
afternoon when Strong's punt was
blocked by Czak and recovered by
freshman tackle George Oostroot in
the end zone.
Repeating Czak's performance,
Frutig blocked Luther's attempted
punt on his goal line and Harlin
Fraumann, freshman end of the Yel-
lows, recovered to close the third
period scoring.
The Yellows picked up' where they
left off starting the final frame, and
after an exchange of punts steam-
rollered 40 yards to score again when
Westf all plunged over from the one
yard line. Strong ended an 80-yard
parade by plunging over from the

one yard line to close the scoring and
