The Boxing Report ...
BOXIIG interest at Michigan fin-
ally resulted in some constructive
investigation this month when the
Physical Education Department, un-
der the direction of Dr. George A.
May, sent "feelers" to 24 leading Uni-
versities inquiring as to their stand
on the sport.
I Advocates of boxing, myself in-
cluded, will be surprised to learn
that 13 of the 24 schools returned
unfavorable replies stating various
reasons for their position. How-
ever, the report, which Bill Elmer
of the editorial staff has forward-
ed to me, seems to indicate that
despite this opposition the atti-
tude in many cases is an "on the
fence" one. I still believe that if
enough interest is shown in box-
ing, the schools which are waver-
ing in their stand will be forced to
reconsider the merits of the sport.
In the Western Conference six'
schools expressed disfavor and four
either favored or were open minded
towardsaitsrinauguration. Chicago
and Ohio State returned "decidedly.
unfavorable" replies; Illinois, North-
western and Indiana answered "un-
favorable;" Michigan permits class
instruction only. On the other side
of the ledger, Iowa, despite a state
law prohibiting boxing would "like
to encourage it;" Minnesota reports
that they are favorable to boxing if
it is controlled; Purdue is "open'
minded;" and Wisconsin, only Con-
ference school which boasts of a vars-
ity boxing team, presents the unusual
anomaly of having the Athletic De-'
partment favor the sport and the
Physical Education Department op-
pose it.
Among the other schools contacted
Nebraska, Cornell, Syracuse, Yale,
California, U.C.L.A., and Stanfordj
answered f a v o r a b 1 y. Columbia,
Dartmouth, Harvard, Pennsylvania,
Pittsburgh, Princeton, and Washing-
ton replied in the negative.
Seven of these schools at pres-
ent feature boxing on their vars-
ity calendar. Wisconsin leads the
way, the sport having clicked
tremendously at Madison with1
crowds ranging from eight to
twelve thousand. An admission
charge is levied.1
Syracuse, where admissions range
from 55 cents to $1.65, has an averager
attendance of 3,000. California's gal-
lery averages about 2,500, Cornell's
1,500, Stanford, which reported "de-
cidedly favorable," averages 750 per-
sons, and U.C.L.A. and Yale, about
Sixteen of the schools offer some
sort of boxing competition, usually1
intramural. At Iowa crowds of 1,000
spectators have watched exhibition
bouts sponsored by the Intramural
Boxing enjoys considerable
prominence in the South, rating
as number one sport at such
schools as Virginia. The National
Collegiate Tournament this year
will be held at Wisconsin, which
is strongly favored to walk away
with the title.
Chief opposition to the sport here is
the fear of injury. Athletic Director
Fielding H. Yost, long an opponent
of any form of boxing in the varsity
curriculum, recently expressed anoth-
er view when he told this reporter:
"We have enough trouble keep-

ing the boys happy and promot-
ing teamwork and good fellow-
ship here without putting two
'men in a boxing ring and encour.-
aging them to fight it out."
How this observation can be recon-
ciled with the type of endeavors which
such sports as football or wrestling
feature is something that this chron-
icler is unable to fathom.
All scholastically eligible sec-
ond semester freshmen and soph-
omores who wish to try out for
The Daily sports staff should re-
port at 4 p.m. Monday in Room
316 of the Union. 4

Puckmen Lose
To Minnesota
By 8-3 Score
Gophers Tally Five Goals
In First Period; Cooke
Bags Two For Varsity
Making a clean sweep of the entire
year's series, the University of Min-
nesota pucksters trounced Michigan
last night at Minneapolis, 8-3. Seem-
ing to be unstoppable in the first
period, the Gophers piled up five
consecutive goals inside of ten min-
Michigan had the puck in danger-
ous territory but once, with Minne-
sota's stonewall defense breaking up
all plays at the blue line.
Coming back in the second period
as completely rejuvenated team the
Wolverines, with a remarkable change
of pace, took the offensive, and com-
pletely outskated the Gophers to dec-
orate the laces twice, and leave the
Gophers scoreless.
Hillberg Scores
Taking the puck in center ice Hill-
berg skated by his lonesome through
the entire Gopher defense, and
whipped it in for Michigan's first
tally against the Gophers this sea-
Little George (Toughy) Cooke, as
the Gopher followers nicknamed him,
was in the Minnesota boys' hair all
night. Also taking the puck away
from a Minnesota player at center
ice he waved along the boards, sud-
denly cut in and tossed the puck be-
tween the legs of goalie Marty Falk.
The fans went wild with applause
on gall of the Wolverine scores, as
the boys throughout both games had
played their hearts out until the last
second of play was over.
Cooke Scores Second
With the third period three minutes
old, George Cooke received a perfect-
ly timed pass from Hillberg, that
Falk couldn't possibly have stopped.
Thinking they had better settle
down or anything might happen, the
Gophers led by Johnn Mariucci and
Frank St. Vincent, took up the Goph-
r cause to score three quick goals
to sew up the contest.
Playing the finest game of any in-
vading team, goalie James kept the
crowd in applause most of the eve-
ning with remarkable, some almost
impossible, saves.
James' stops were all difficult be-
cause the Gophers' offense, with but
one exception, was always far inside
the blue line, with never less than
two men swarming down upon him.
He was slightly injured late in the
third period when a puck hit him in
the head. However he was able to re-
main in the game.
Last Of Series
Tonight's game was the last of this
year's series for Michigan and Minne-
sota, and was the 67th game of a 17
year rivalry between the two schools
in hockey.
By scoring its three goals against
the Gophers tonight, the Wolverines
upset the Gopher hope of being the
first of the two schools to shut out
the other in all of the four games
This season's total goals was Min-
nesota 25, Michigan 3.
