The Irish captain will also be en-
tered in the mile, against Karl Wis-
ner and Hod Davidson, of Michigan.
New Field House records in both the
one and two mile may be the result
of the midget Rice's terrific stretch
kick upon which he depends for his
Another prime attraction on the
card is the appearance of All-Ameri-'
ca gridder Ed Beinor and Bill Fay-
monville to test the shot-put suprem-
acy of Capt. Bill Watson. Both Bein
or and Faymonville are capable of
doing nearly 50 feet and, if they
should catch "Big Bill" on an off-
night, an upset might result.
After taking his turn in the shot,
Watson will catch the 8:30 sleeper
for New York City where he will be
the only Michigan entry in the Na-
tional AAU championships.
Aside from', Rice, the Irish appear
to have only an outside chance of
winning any of the track events. Bob

MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 23.--(IP)-Tony
Galento, the people's choice, scored
a technical knockout over the veteran
heavyweight, Abe Feldman, in the
third round of a scheduled 10-round-
er at Burdine Stadium tonight. Ref-
eree Dave Miller of Chicago stopped
it when Feldman went to his knees,
helpless, from a left to the body after
311/2 seconds of the round.
Smith and Carl Culver show the
form they flashed at the Illinois re-
lays, Saggau will have a tough time
breaking into the win column.
Dave Reidy looked good in taking
second in the low hurdles behind
Stan Kelley and third behind Elmer
Gedeon in the highs at Champaign
Saturday and should press the Michi-
gan duo all the way in both races.
Jeff Hall, sophomore, will be the
third Michigan entry in each hurdles
Ross Faulkner and Warren Breid-
enbach should combine to take over
Irish Joe Halpin in the 440, and Tom-
my Jester, Dye Hogan, and Ed Bar-
rett, moved up from the mile, will
make things tough for Curtis Hes-
ter, a 1:58 performer in the half-
Michigan's mile relay team, shaken
up because of Phil Balyeat's illness,
will present Harvey Clarke, Jack
Leutritz, Doug Hayes, and Ross Faulk-
ner against an Irish quartet as yet un-
John Dean, a consistent 13-foot
pole vaulter, has too much for Michi-
gan's best, Dave Cushing and Gus
Fabyan, and the Irish have a fine
high-jumper in Ted Leonas, who will
force Wes Allen and Don Canham to
the limit.
The finals of the fraternity relays
will be run off at 8:20. -

DIARY--Up at 6 a.m. to catch the Mercury streamliner from Cleveland
to Detroit and as usual just made it . . . Renewed acquaintances with.
Whitey, the affable coach porter aboard the train, and was informed that
we had a distinguished guest aboard in the personage of Joe Louis, ye olde
Browne Bomber.. . . My informant reported that Joe, Marva (Mrs. L.), and
Freddie, who I assumed to be a bodyguard, had made the trip down the night
before for some Cleveland festivities and were at present resting in a draw-
ing room . . . Enthusiastic Whitey explained that coming down Joe had
been the toast of the train's passengers, answering all questions and auto-
graphing willingly . . . A promised meeting between Mr. Louis and myself
did not materialize and spent the time rambling in my thoughts, reading a
Cleveland paper, and browsing through a "Reader's Digest" . . . This
month's issue is solidly worthwhile . . . Enjoyed a Cleveland columnist's
observation that "baseball is the greatest thing in the world for youngsters
Better for them to worship a Harder than a Hitler" Wonder who
this guy Jack Roper is that Louis will fight in Los Angeles and how long he
will last? . . . To Detroit, the same dirty station, and a two hour wait for a
train . . . Ann Arbor looked gloomily familiar.
* * *,
O THE Field House and the rounds . . . Surprised to see portly
Herm Fishman bouncing around the basketball court as in days
of old . . . He's training for another year of mound duty with the Syra-
cuse Stars and is shedding extra poundage ... Fishman's "if you ain't got
a job you better get one" struck home . . . Chatted briefly with Capt.
Leo Beebe, whom I was pleased to-find surprisingly philosophic about
his team's nose dive this year . . . Leo, an emotional sort of an athlete,
is keeping his chin up and scrapping as are his teammates . . . This
column has no axe to grind with a team that does that ... Asked Bennie
Oosterbaan if we'd beat Purdue and he snapped back a "yes" that almost
tore my neck off . . . Good stuff . . . Felt sorry for Jimmie Rae who
tries to hide that back injury but is obviously in bad shape.
OVER TO Charlie Hoyt who remarked that I was the first Daily reporter
who came up and shook hands . . . Then into a long discussion on the
flu danger which Charlie claims has taken Balyeat, Breidenbach, Kromer
lmd Purucker among others . . . "Knocking on wood and keeping my
fingers crossed," remarked Mr. Hoyt . . . Into the locker-room and a reclin-
ing Steve Bronson, who has forgotten a cigar debt which he incurred on a
certain bet of a few months ago . . . Generously offered to bet that Michigan
beats Notre Dame in track, which I think was nice of him . . . Upstairs and
to the wrestlers with Cliff Keen discarding his pessimistic role to state that
Michigan had the best dual meet squad in the Conference and would probably
win the Big Ten title . . . And the band will play at the Ohio State meet
Saturday night, all of which makes Keen a happy guy.
THE ATHLETIC building and Clarence Munn's admiring surveyal of
a fading suntan . . . A hasty hello to Earl Martineau and upstairs
to the Crisler office . . . There met Joe Gembis, football coach of Wayne
University, who was going over a few plays with Fritz . . . He's here to
wind up his work for a master's degree, explaining that Wayne is get-
ting very "degree conscious" . . . Asked Crisler when he hoped to start
spring ball, and he retorted as soon as the weather permits . . . "Last
year we started March 28," he explained, "and I hope to start about the
20th this year" . . . The squad will work out for about six weeks . .
Asked Fritz about eligibility, and he seemed pleased with the results
. . . "Valek is out of school this semester," he comnented, "but will
probably be able to reenter next fall, Frutig is ineligible, but I don't see
any reason why he shouldn't be able to make it up, and there are a few
others" . . . "Compared to last year, though," he continued, "we're in
good shape. At that time Harmon, Fritz, Kromer, Mehaffey, and Meyer
were all in hot water. This year Harmon got A's and B's, Meyer B's, and
the others came through in good order."
THANKED Bill Reed for his guest column, and he told me that it had
caused some comment, but that he was glad he had written it . . .
Commented upon columns are the kind to write . . . To the I-M Bldg. and
watched Ray Courtright teaching a group of novices the proper golf swing
Must get down there some day and sharpen up a very dull game .
Ray is quite concerned about an item in this column in reference to 22
caddies on Western Golf Association scholarships at Northwestern .
"We're holding a Western Golf tourney here this year," he complained,
"and they send the boys to Northwestern. If they're giving scholarships
why not let the boys choose their schools. There must be some agreement
between the two groups, for I know some of the Association officials are
Northwestern men. I'm looking into this,"he concluded . . . Keep us
posted, Ray . . . Back to the office for a brief staff meeting, and so to
dinner, an uneventful evening, and a cold bed, wondering why this muddled
world seems so much more complex on dreary days like these.

The second and third scores were
within two minutes with Kenny An-

Strong Buckeye Team Threatens
To Upset Unbeaten Wrestlers

Intent upon becoming the first team
to down Michigan's Big Ten cham-
pions this year, Ohio State's wrestling
team will invade the Field House to-
morrow night for the Wolverines sec-
ond Big Ten meet and final home
appearance of the season.
The Buckeyes, victorious in their
first three meets of the season, re-
cently succumbed to Illinois and the
perenially strong Kent State team,
but they never fail to provide plenty
of excitement for the fans. Last
year, Coach Cliff Keen's crew had a
real job on its hands to turn back
the Buckeyes, 191 to 101/2, and to-
morrow night's fracas should prove
no exception.
Coach "Spike" Mooney, the Ohio
State mentor, has done such a great
deal of shifting among his grapplers
from time to time that it is difficult
to predict the Buckeyes' starting line-
up against Michigan. However, it
appears that Bob Martin will step to
the mat at 121 pounds. Martin is un-
defeated at this weight, but has

ing days of speculation, Charles S.
Howard announced late today that
Seabiscuit, erstwhile favorite to win
the $100,000 Santa Anita handicap,
definitely would not go into the big

Seabiscuit went lame during his

that the stake champion would come
back and be ready for his third crack
at the $100,000 purse.

here's a swell Idea
for Sunday evening 0 10
THIS SUNDAY, Clarence Munn is bringing his football
movies to the Michigan Wolverine for a special show-
ing. This worthwhile event is starting off our regular
series of Sunday evening gatherings. All Wolverine
members, their dates, and friends are welcome. The
entertainment lasts from 6:00 until 8:00, but drop in
any time you wish.
IN A FEW WEEKS, we are going to give you a real
surprise - OUR FIRST DANCE. These dances will be
non-profit affairs, designed merely to let us have a
good time inexpensively.

Eleven Michigan cagers entrain to-
night for the heart of Indiana's bas-
ketball country at Lafayette where
tomorrow evening they meet Purdue
and thereby take the first step onto
the quick sands of "suicide stretch"
-four final games bringing on Pur-
due, Ohio State, Indiana and North-
The Boilermakers are last year's
champs, Ohio and Indiana' are fight-
ing it out for the title and North-
western's rising power now makes
them a team to be feared. That's
what lies ahead as the Wolverines
leave town at 8:30 p.m.
Included in the Michigan traveling
contingent are Coach Bennie Oost-
erbaan's two ailing centers, Jim Rae
and John Nicholson. Both broke back
into action just this week and are
only fit for brief periods of play.
Coach Oosterbaan said yesterday
ghat he would not start Rae and
would use him for only a few minutes

during the game. The starting line-
up therefore will be the same one that
faced Chicago last week. Dan Smick
will again take Rae's place at center,
Tom Harmon and Charley Pink will
be at the forwards with Capt. Leo
Beebe and Eddie Thomas playing
their regular guard positions.
The second quintet will include
Mike Sofiak, Russ Dobson, Nichol-
son, Milo Sukup and Freddie Trosko.
The Wolverine squad, which hit a
new low last Saturday -when it lost
to Chicago, is not letting the tough
schedule ahead get under its collec-
tive skin and is taking hope from
the fact that Purdue's Boilermakers
gave been having the same trouble
Last year's champions are begin-
ning to feel the loss of their "three
musketeers," Jewell Young, all-Ameri-
can forward, Johnny Sines, another
high-scoring forward and little Pat
