Pro And Con.. .
JACK BRENNAN, sans the frivolity
of his ice carnival conquests, ranf
his hand through his blond hair,
struck a thoughtful pose, and pon-
dered over the question'.
"Hell," he replied, "I know it's
a tough choice to make. You ask
'wh* turn pro'? I've thought it
out, weighed every angle, talked
about it, aid dreamt about it,
and I still think I've done the
right thing.
"It wasn't easy," he went on.
"There were other offers-a high
school coaching job in Florida, a
chance to go into business near my
home, and still I'm convinced I've
done the right thing. Those jobs
meant chicken feed salaries, and for
once in my life I want a chance to
go after some real dough.
"I know it's a tough racket, but
it doesn't scare me. The Packers' two
guards, Engebretsen and Goldenberg,
aren't kids any more. They need
younger men. All last season I felt
that I was capable of better ball.
Don't ask me why, but that's the way
it was. Give me a chance to play
with those Packers with .some real
dough at stake, and I'll make good.
"I'm not going into this game
for buttons," he continued. "It's
one or two years and then quits.
But this means a chance to get
started, Bud, and I must have
that chance. I'm getting married
the week before graduation, and
I can't fool around with a hit-or-
rmiss proposition.

Even though they shot almost as
often as the Buckeyes, Michigan still
suffered from its acute net astigma-
tism. Shot after shot rolled around
the rim, bounced off the board or
missed the whole thing completely.
Thomas Gets Hot
Sophomore Tom Harmon had his
worst night of the season as his shoot-
ing went haywire alongfwith every-
thing else. One free throw was his
total accomplishment. Eddie Thom-
as worked his dribble in play well
three times and hit with a long once
to top the Varsity scoring with nine
Regardless of this dismal showing,
Coach Harold Olsen of Ohio and
Captain Hull were of the opinion
that Michigan would give their Hoo-
sier rivals a tussle. "They're the
bunch to take over Indiana," they
said. "If their shots start dropping,
they'll be tough."
Ohio found them tough for most
of the first half but it was because
both teams' ishooting was bad. After
16 minutes, Michigan had sunk only
two of 32 shots and Ohio five out of
24. The Bucks led 11 to 10 but then

Illini Close Season
By Beating Chicago1
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 27-(P)-
Illinois closed its basketball season
here tonight with an easy 49 to 26
victory over Chicago. Lewis (Pick)
Dehner, gangling center, accounted
for 19 points on nine field goals and
one free throw.
It left the Illini with a record of
eight wins and four losses in Big Ten
play and a season record of 14 games
won and five lost. The only non-con-
ference setback was at the hands of
Notre Dame Feb. 3.

Badly Battered
Hockey Squad.
Awaits Toronto
Short-Handed Puckmen
Meet Strong Canadian
Club HereWednesday
Still " battered and worn from an-
other pair of Minnesota drubbings,
Michigan's determined but small
hockey team will face more first-
class competition when it encounters
the University of Toronto Wednes-
day night a the Coliseum.
Not only did Minnesota's Golden
Gophers leave a mark on Michigan
but they forced the Wolverines to
leave their mark on the sick list.
Upon arriving at Minneapolis Bert
Stodden was taken directly to the
hospital where he was operated on
for appendicitis. Al Chadwick, who
has been one of the most aggressive
players on the squad this season, was
forced to spend the majority of his
time flat on his back in an effort to
drive off an attack of the flu.
"Spike" James gave the Minnesota
fans a real show by his excellent job
of net minding, but while carrying
out this performance he was also
bothered with a cold. Chuck Ross,
playing the defensive position in place
of Stodden, had one eye closed when
Mariucci drove down the ice and
cross-checked him with a high stick.
Saturday night, Coach Lowrey was
forced to have his starting forward
wall composed of George Cooke, Capt.
Les Hillberg, and Gil Samuelson.
Taking turns in relieving these menj
were Jim Tobin and Fred Heddle.
Wednesday night the Wolverines'
will play one of the leading colle-
giate hockey teams in the world. In
the current season the University of
Toronto has been leaving its mark
on Eastern Collegiate hockey teams,
and has among its list of victims Mc-
Gill University, which in turn has
had little trouble in defeating such

Ex-Varsity Natator
Sets World Record
Taylor Drysdale, former Universit;
of Michigan and 1936 Olympic bacl
stroker, bettered the world's 50
yard stroke record over the 20-yarc
course by .2 seconds Sunday at Cora
Gables, Fla.
Drysdale covered the distance it
27.2 seconds, to break the record hel
by Adolf Kiefer set in 1937 in Chi
American teams as Dartsmouth, Har
yard and Yale. The Blue and Whit
squad is coached by Ace Bailey form
er National League hockey star.

"This job has more security than
I had hoped for," he added. "During
the off-season I'll work for the Kim-
berly-Clark paper company in their
sales department. They're located at
Neenah, Wis., about 50 miles from
Green Bay.
"Sis (Staebler-Br-ennan's fiancee)
and I are driving up there for our
honeymoon to get located. I'll work
until about the 15th of August and
then start training. We play exhibi-
tion games at Dallas and Philadel-
phia before the season opens.

The second half was no contest as'
the Buckeyes cut loose a barrage oft
40 shots and scored 10 times. Five
of those baskets were made by the
accurate Lynch who took over Hull'sj
pacemaking role to outdo the master.
Michigan's Jim Rae, of the ailingI
sacroiliac, was too bound up -by his1
back to play his real game and sawi
only 15 minutes' action. Trailing 351
to 23 with eight minutes left, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan sent in his shock]
troops of Sofiak, Sukup, Dobson and
Nicholson who suffered through the
obsequies. '
Ohio State travels to meet thati
troublesome Purdue quintet next
Saturday night while Michigan playsl
host to Indiana. Upon those two i
games hinges the outcome of the Big
Ten basketball campaign of 1939.
'(Editor's Note: Due to the increased
interest in bowling on campus, both
from the spectator and player stand-
point, The Daily will, each week, rev-
port the high scores and the best five
game average turned in at the Campus
Bowling League.)
With the Campus Bowling League
at the mid-way mark of the second
half of the tournament, the Strikers
and Bee Cees retained their joint
leadership with each having won 11
and lost 4.
Last week's high scores were: Bob
Pressprich 277, Elmer Mitchell 259,
and Dan Smick 252. The best five
game average was turned in by Mit-
chell with 225.
Pressprich's 277 not only ranked
as the year's best score, but also tied
the Bowling Alley record.

measure on every occasion'they met
with a single exception. This Fran-
cis Ryan (he's Columbia's contribu-
tion to the 1938 All-America and
All-College teams) jinx is one, how-
ever, which Bill is sure will be shat-
tered outdoors before the year is over.
But there are a couple of other
things which go far to explain Wat-
son's failure to put the shot any
farther than he did while h,, was
still a freshman under Ken Doherty's
Arriving late he found himself
scheduled to broad jump before his
favorite weight event. After leapnig
23 feet 4%/ inches, which brought
him third behind Ed Gordon, Olympic
broad jump winner in 1932, and Zie-
metz, of Boston College, Watson hur-
ried over to the scene of the shot put
where he was confronted with what
he was told was a shot.
Funny Shot
It was Watson's first encounter
with the shot used in the indoor
meets on board floors and, says Wil-
liam, he hopes it is his last. They
handed Bill the large leather-covered
object, and told him to go ahead, the
event was starting. What happened
was chronicled in Sunday's paper.
Not only did Ryan beat Bill but so did
Edward Beetem, of Pennsylvania, and
Howard Brill of N.Y.U.
"And the worst thing "about the
Ryan part of it," said Bill as he head-
ed for the showers, still besieged by
the inevitable, 'What happened?' "was
that the guy didn't do more than 48
feet on his other tries." (Ryan won
the championship with 50 feet 11I

two places.
Bill Beebe, after having been
pressed all the way by Jerry Zehr,
won the 150-yard back stroke by five
yards. Zehr, brother of Danny Zehr,
Big Ten record holder, stayed with
Beebe up to the last 25 yards where
he missed his turn. The sophomore
was then nosed out by his teammate
Harold Dash for second place. The
time, 1:44.7, was very slow.
In the breast stroke, Sutker took
the lead from the outset and was
never headed. Sutker, a consistent
point winner two years ago, was in-
eligible last year. Ed Mack and Bob
Newton, both of Michigan, trailed in
that order.

Powell, Southeastern A.A.U. diving
champion, nosed out Benham by three
points in the dive. The Northwestern
sophomore got 127 points to Benham's
In the 400-yard relay, Bill Holmes
and Ed Hutchens swam the first two
legs and built up a commanding lead.
Then Charley Barker and Walt Tom-
ski, swimming in that order, took it
easy for the remainder of the race but
still had enough to win by eight yards.
Northwestern gained partial re-
venge for the trouncing in the dual
meet by whipping Michigan in water
polo, 15-0. The Wolverines, who nev-
er play the game, were outclassed.
