s been reared in an atmosphere of
thlete-privilege," asks: "Are the
iversities of our land asking ques-
ns too hard for their athletes in
holastic examinations?" He con-
iues: "Why not devise special and
parate lists of examination ques-
ins for these fellows who spend
o much of their time on the grid-
n or on the court, and who have
o little time to spend in study?"
The writer grants any univers-
ity or college to use these gems in
whole or in part. And I might add
that in my ramblings this season,
I have come in contact with a few
institutions which might well take
this proposal under advisement.

NATIONAL LEAGUE HKEY
New York Rangers 7; Detroit Red
This made a total of 19 relay rec-
ords that the Wolverines have set
this year-four in the free style,
nine in the back stroke and six in
the breast stroke.
Minnesota was able to take but
five second places as the Wolverines
won as they pleased.
Walt Tomski turned in the best
time of the evening as he again bet-
tered the Big Ten record set last
year by Michigan's Ed Kirar by .1
seconds as he won the 50 yard free
style in 23.2.
The closest race of the evening
came in the 150-yard back stroke
with Charley Barker and Lyman
Brandt tangling. The pair were still
even with 25 yards to go but Barker
touched the Gopher captain, who
finished third in the Big Tens, out
by inches. The time was 1:40.8.
Holmes Saves Medley
Another sonhomore, Bill Holmes,
pulled the medley relay out of the fire
aver Jack Sherrill had lost a length
and a half in the back stroke leg and
Johnny Haigh had picked up a
length of it in the breast stroke.
Holmes pulled away in the last 25
yards to win by two yards.
Hal Benham and Ralph Pyszinski
finished one-two in the dive; Tom
Haynie waltzed home in the 440;
Jim Welsh was first in. the 220; Ed
Hutchens annexed the century and
Johnny Haigh won the breast stroke.

All freshman interested in track
are urged to attend the meeting
at the Yost Field House, Friday,
Feb. 24, at 5 p.m. sharp. Previous
experience is not necessary.
When two such prominent mem-I
bers of that small and select group.
the We-Beat-Don-Lash Club, as
Ralph Schwarzkopf and Greg Rice
hold a meeting it is no ordinary meet-
ing-it is a battle to the finish (line)
with a track as the battle-ground.
The next meeting of this duo is set
for next Friday at Yost Field House.
The occasion will be the dual meet
between Notre Dame, with Rice as
captain and mainstay of the Irish,
and Michigan, with Schwarzkopf as
the star distance performer for the
Three And Out?
Schwarzkopf, who beat Don Lash
in the Penn Relays 3000-meter run
last May, and Rice, who defeated the
Hoosier ace in the Millrose two-mile
several weeks ago, have met three
times in the past with the tiny Notre
Dame man winning each time.
Their first meeting was in the
5000-meter run last June in the Na-
tional AAU meet at Buffalo when
Rice finished strong on a blistering
hot, day to win the event. Ralph,
bothered by the heat and a distance
to which he was not accustomed, fin-
ished fourth in that race.

The next meeting of the two was in
Return Of Rae
Ji 'Feels Pretty Good'
After Two Five-Minute
Workouts With Varsity
Michigan's hopes of handing last
year's champion Purdue quintet a
surprise when they clash Saturday
took a slight rise yesterday afternoon
as center Jim Rae broke back into
the lineup after a week's absence
nursing his bad back.
The tall Wolverine star, whose
ability to play varies with the condi-
tion of a troublesome sacroiliac,
scrimmaged for two five minute
stretches and declared that he "felt
pretty good." And that's good news
to everybody. The only qUestion is,
how long will that back hold out in
To Try Again
Ever since the final game of the
pre-Conference schedule against To-
ledo, Jim has been troubled with the
injury and twice he has had to lay
off completely. He's ready to try
again now and will probably see some
action against the Boilermakers al-
though his ,condition will be far from

In yestercday's scrimmage against
the second team, the Varsity showed
encouraging signs, the best of which
was some good shooting. Eddie
Thomas was connecting with the long
ones, Charley Pink got his left hand
into working order and toward the
end of the drill Capt. Leo Beebe was
sinking them as of old.
Leo has been in the throes of a ter-
rific slump which has played havoc
with his "batting average." He has
made only seven field goals in the last
mile, an invitational affair in New
York city, and Rice again won. Lash
finished second and Schwarzkopf3
was only inches behind the Hoosier
cop, in third place. Rice's margin
over Ralph this time was less than

they were just two more guys in a
field of some 30 milers for the first'
few laps of the team mile race. At
that, Rice won and Ramblin' Ralph
was, according to observers, less than
a half-foot back in second.
The Local Meeting
Now comes one more meeting of
two /of America's best at the two-
mile distance. And there will be an-
other point in Schwarzkopf's favor
besides the fact that he has steadily
reduced the margin of defeat.
Rice, according to reports coming
from South Bend, will attempt one
of the most difficult of track doubles
and will be entered in both the mile
and two-mile as the Irish are some-
what undermanned in the longer-
distance runs. Coach Charlie Hoyt
will send Hod Davidson and Karl
Wisner out to -run the mile and you
can bet that those Wolverines will
not pull their punches when it comes
time for that killing last lap stretch
drive. The two-mile, an hour later,
will bring together a fresh Schwarz-
kopf and a Rice who will have run a
