Big Ten Indoor record of Walter
Mehl of Wisconsin by nearly three
Gedeon never faltered from the gun
to the tape as he won both hurdlesI
races and contributed 10 points to the
Michigan total. He duplicated his :08E
flat of the Michigan State meet two,
weeks ago in the highs and became
co-holder with Jesse Owens of the,
Field House 65-yard low hurdles rec-
ord when he won the event in :07.2.
Stan Kelley took second in the highs
but Irishman Dave Reidy of Notre
Dame beat Irishman Kelley for sec-,

Watson Wins Shot Put
Capt. Bill Watson stayed around
long enough to put the shot four feet
further than Notre Dame's Bill Fay-
monville and All-American gridder
Ed Beinor could do and then caught
a train for New York City and the
National AAU meet tonight. Bill's
winning heave this time was 51 ft.

Aside from Rice's one-mile victory
the best the Irish could do was share
a couple of first places with Wolver-
ine entries. John Dean of the Irish
and Dave Cushing of Charlie Hoyt's
aggregation cleared 12 feet, six inches
to divide first place points in the
pole vault and Notre Dame's Ted
Leonas, who had never done better
than 6 ft. 3 in. indoors, went an inch
higher to tie Michigan's Wes Allen
in the high jump.
Hogan Repeats In 880
Al Smith, still suffering from a cold,
had enough to beat Steve Coughlin

Strong Ohio State Array
Threatens To Put End
To Michigan's Streak
Yost Field House will resound with
thuds, grunts, groans, and fast ac-
tion tonight as Michigan's undefeat-
ed Varsity wrestlers, meet a danger-
ous Ohio State array, in quest of their
fifth straight victory of the current
The meet will mark the Wolverines'
lase home appearance of the season
and gives every indication of being
a nip and tuck affair right down to
the final bout.
The Buckeyes, vanquished by
Keen's men last year after a bitter
fight, 192 to 102, have made it very
much known that they are out for
complete revenge tonight. They will
have an added incentive, too, for the
opportunity will be presented to them
to succeed in toppling several Michi-
gan stars from their undefeated
Bucks Started Strong
Ohio State's record, when com-
pared to that of the Wolverines, does
not appear too convincing. The
Buckeyes, after taking three in a row
at the start of the season, have
dropped their last two, while Michi-
gan has conquered Indiana, Penn
State, the New York A.C. and Mich-
igan State in that order. But Ohio
State has never been known to hold
its opponents' records in esteem and
tonight will be no exception.
Capt. Harold Nichols, undefeated
thus far, will meet his sternest test
of the year when he tangles with
Ohio's Tony Montanaro in the 145-
pound tussle. If he gets by this one
he will probably be installed as the
favorite to cop the Big Ten title at
his weight. But Montanaro is tough.
He's strong, fast and a real veteran
of the mat wars despite the fact that
he is only a sophomore. He, too, is
unbeaten this year.
Brother Don Nichols will be out
gunning for his fifth in a row tonight,
as will 136-pounder Jim Mericka and
heavyweight "Butch" Jordan. Nich-
ols will probably battle it out with
Ohio State's Bernie Mindlin, who
has been a jack of all trades this
year, going as low as the 155-pound
bracket, while Mericka and Jordan
will find themselves face to face
with two tough grapplers in Don
MacIntyre and George "six-foot-four"
Downes, respectively, both of whom
are eager to "knock off" their Wol-
verine opponents.
Michigan's Bill Combs will need all
his speed and wrestling 'savvy' to beat
the veteran Buckeye 155- pounder,
Rudy Myers for his second triumph
of the season, while Frank Morgan,
who will represent the Wolverines at
165, has one of the hardest assign-
ments of the evening when he meets
the Ohio State captain, Jean Peltier.
Peltier has had equal success wrest-
ling at either 165 or 175 this year,
and will be favored to bring home
the bacon for the Buckeyes tonight.
Weidig Is Underdog
Tom Weidig, Coach Keen's vastly
improved 121-pound fighter who will
be seeking his third win in five
starts, will tangle with a favored Bob
Martin in the opening match of the
evening. Martin has been unbeaten
at 121 this season, but ventured a try
at 128 and was turned back.
At 128, red-headed Andy Sawyer
will have a good opportunity to chalk
up his first win of the season when
he meets Buckeye Dick Varney, who
sports an even record in two starts.
The meet will get under way
promptly at 7:30 p.m. and those stu-
dents who present their identification
cards at the gate will be admitted
free. The price for all others is 40c.
The probable lineup:
Ohio State Michigan
Bob Martin 121 Tom Weidgi
Dick Varney 128 Andy Sawyer
Tony Montanaro 145 Harold Nichols
Tony Montonaro 145 Harold Nichols

Making The Rounds .. .
HERE'S A STORY that has been
making the rounds of the sports
columns in the ha-ha departments:
There was a small high school in
Kentucky which, lacking a gymna-
sium, had to hold its basketball prac-
tices on a clay court out-of-doors.
Despite this handicap the team swept
into the state tournament which is
the scene of this yarn.
In the first game of the tour-
ney, held indoors of course, an
observer noted that the star of
the rural quintet would dribble to
about mid-floor, shoot, and with-
out a glance at the basket to see
whether the shot went in or not
would trot back to his position.
Time after time the- star repeated
this act, never looking to see whether
or not the shot hit. And time after
time his efforts parted the meshes
for two points.
After the game , the observer ap-
proached the kid and asked:
"Why do you always turn your
back to the basket after you
"Hell," replied the youngster,
"there ain't no wind in here!"
IT HAPPENED at the University of
Florida, where football is not only
a business but a racket.
During the summer months more
than a dozen of the husky Florida
gridders obtained jobs on the WPA
to tide them over the summer months.
Hardly reprehensible, but it had its
Came the fall and football. The
WPA boys returned to active duty but
with a new philosophy .of life. One
of the other team members described
it thus:
"We would get in the huddle,
and I would call the signal: '125
right, on two.' Suddenly one of
these WPA guys pops up: 'Sorry,
bo, that ain't my project.'
"No matter what signal I would
call there would always be some-
one with that 'it ain't my project.'
How's a guy going to quarterback

men playing?

W ELL, I see where Michigan's hock-
ey team has now been scored7

in three games without a retaliatory
Wolverine goal, but it's simply a casej

I wonder what Jack Doyle would

a goal tonight? In this book that
would be accomplishment enough for
a sadly outclassed sextet.

PICKUPS: Recommended for base-
ball fans: Take a gander at Russ
Dobson's curve ball which he has been
tossing in the Yost Field House in
between basketball practices ... It's a
darb, and this corner believes that if
the atmosphere is right onthe dia-
mond this spring, Russell will be
number one pitcher ... I guess Coach
Branch McCracken wasn't kidding
this columnist a month or so ago
when he told me thathhis Indiana
team would be a real factor in the
Conference basketball race . . . I wish
they would end this silly build-up
and let Joe Louis blast Galento back
to Jersey City and his brewery . . . It
would be positively brutal, but so are
those hokum stories emanating from
the Galento typewriters ... All George
Page, Yale basketball guard, has to
do to inherit a million simoleons is to
graduate from college this June .. .
Give it the old collitch try, kid . .
Walt Peckinpaugh, baseball captain,
should paste that apple plenty in the
Conference this spring . . . The "One
Man Gang" Evashevski is working
out in his baseball togs to shed some
of that extra avoirdupois picked up
since the end of football season .. .
Ed Slezak, who graduated from the
physical education school last June,
has been appointed head of Notre
Dame's new intramural department

ming team as soon as one is organized

Varsity Cagers
Face Purdue.
Rae To See Some Action
But Probably Will Not
Be In Starting Lineup
After losing to 1938's cellar team
last week, Michigan's Varsity basket-I
ball quintet will attempt to upset the
1938 champions tonight at Lafayette'
when they take on the Boilermakers
of Purdue in the first contest of the
final "fatal four."
Even though they must wade
through Ohio State, Indiana and
Northwestern following tonight's bat-
tle, the Wolverines are taking them
one by one-and Coach Piggy Lam-
bert's outfit is first on the list.
Coach Lambert's big worry this
year has been in replacing the bril-
liant Jewell Young-Johnny Sines for-
ward combination of last season's
championship squad which teamed
with All-Conference center Gene An-
derson to produce a scoring mark of
511 points in 12 games. Anderson
is back as captain of this year's team
but Lambert has had to dig deep to
fill the forward posts.
Dan Fisher, Anderson's understudy
at center last season, is now playing
the one forward position with sopho-
more Bob Igney at the other. Igney
didn't get much of a tumble early in
the season but in the past few games
his deadly shooting has stolen the
spotlight. The skinny six-footer who
weighs only 140 pounds gets hot quite
often and the results are amazing.
He dropped in five field goals on
seven shots in the first half against
Graceful Gene Anderson is still the
big threat however. Rated the Big
Ien's best pivot man last year, Gene
was handicapped at the outset this
year by an injury but is now going
strong again.
Tom Dickinson and Fred Beretta,
regulars from last year, are back at
the guards and are both defensive
Purdue will have a distinct height
advantage since all of the regulars
stand six feet or taller and Michigan
will be further handicapped by the
disablement of center Jim Rae. Jim's
bad back will keep him out of the
starting lineup although he is expect-
ed to see some action.

Dehner Leads Cage Scorers;
Harmon Rises To Sixth Place

While Pick Dehner clings to his slim
lead in the Big Ten scoring race, Tom
Harmon, Michigan's sophomore flash,
is rapidly forging to the front in a
race of his own.
Sinking six field goals against Chi-
cago last weekend, Gary Tom raised
his total for eight games to 76 points
placing him but two behind Bill
Menke of Indiana in the contest for
the outstanding sophomore point-
maker in the Conference. The Wol-
verine grid star still has four games
1. Dehner, Illinois .....41 37 119
2. Hull, Ohio State .....45 21 111
3. Stephens, Iowa ......38 32 108
4. Hapac, Illinois ......34 29 97
5. W. Menke, Indiana . .31 16 78
6. Harmon, Michigan ..29 18 76
in which to increase his total, while
the Indiana ace has but three chances
Harmon, who now holds sixth spot
among the Conference scorers, still
has a mathematical chance to sur-
pass John Townsend's all-time scor-
ing record for Michigan players of
134, set last year. Tom needs 58
to catch up to Jake's total, and these
points in the remaining four contests
points look all the more unattainable
considering the fact that Indiana and
Ohio State, the two leading teams in
the Big Ten still remain on the Mich-
igan schedule.
Taking advantage of the illness of

his two foremost rivals, causing each
of them to miss a game Dehner, the
big Illinois star, counted seven mark-
ers against Purdue to increase his
total for the season to 119 points and
his lead over Jimmy Hull, Ohio State
captain to eight. The Buckeye flash
still has three tilts remaining on his
schedule while Dehner has but two.
