PRESS PASSES

By BUD BENJAMIN

'Don't Quote Me' .
WHEREIN a columnist indulges in
an afternoon of assorted tete-a-
tetes with personalities of the ath-
letic building:
Enter Mr. Bennie Oosterbaan, a
basketball coach. He is attired in a
blue suit, blue and white striped shirt,
and a red tie. In answer to the ques-
tion: "Are you standing pat on your
lineup, Bennie?" he replies.
After a brief period during which
Mr. Oosterbaan and I stare at each
other, each waiting for the other to
speak, I lend impetus to this gay
repartee by asking:
"Yes?"
"Yes," he replies. "Any sugges-
tions?" he adds.
Silence.
"I'm willing to try anything," adds1
Bennie, catching the spirit of the
thing. "Take that game last night.
If we would have hit from outside in1
the first half, we might have won.
Every man on that Ohio State team'
was pressing. Hull, one of, the most
high-strung players I have ever seen,
was all tightened up. A couple of
baskets, a lead at the half, and it
might have been different. Harmon
was off, and when he's off, that's
bad."
"Ohio State had no set offense.
Just an open: passing game. This
guy Lynch sparked it. Saturday
we play Indiana," he concluded
gloomily.
Yes. - -
ANOTHER office in the same build-
ing. I ask an athletic department
authority:
"What's the dope on eligibility?"
He replies: "Eligibility? Ah
,yes, eligibility. Well everyone is
eligible."
"Is Valek eligible?"
"Valek? Ah yes, Valek. Well
you see Valek didn't come up be-
fore the Board for ruling."
"Is Frutig eligible?"
"Frutig? Ah, you mean the end
on the football team. Well, now
you see Frutig didn't come up be-
fore the boar-d."
"How about Brogan?"

"Brogan. I don't recall any rul-
ing on Brogan."
"Am I eligible?"
"You? Well, let me see. Aw
gwoan, you're kiddie'."
Whose kidding, my friend?
ENTER Mr. Clifford Keen, a wrest-
ling coach, in blue suit, blue shirt,
and red tie. Asks Keen:
"How did you like that crowd
at the meet Saturday night?"
"I liked it."
"Boy we made some friends
Saturday night," he adds en-
thusiastically. "And we're going
to make more. This sport has
something, and I'm not kidding.
Wait until that Conference."
Keen takes out a well worn piece
of paper. "Here's the way I dope out
the Conference meet," he tells me.
I look it over. "Can I quote you
on this?"
"No, use it as your own," he re-
plies.
Now it can be told. Benjamin
again has a winner. Michigan to
win the Conference wrestling title by
a single point.
ENTER Clarence Munn in a heavy
blue overcoat.
"Will you kindly tell those
football players that we are pre-
pared to meet them in hockey at
any time that they can pull them-
selves together."
Archie Kodros joins the crew: f
"I see where Jack Brennan will
not play for buttons," he tells me.
"Have you been reading again?"
I ask him.
"Sure," he laughs.
"Going out for spring practice?" I
inquire.
"You bet," he replies. "We're all
going out. I'll see to that. Yessir,
I'll see to that."
THE SANCTUM of Walter J. Weber,
attired in blue coat, grey flannels,
and a light shirt. Mr. Weber, a
football coach, speaks:
"This business of spark. We talk
about athletes with the old go-
go. I believe that if it isn't born
in*them they never get it. Take
Tom Harmon. That guy's a
natural. He just bubbles. You
look at those pictures of the Yale
game. That long run of his was
a single-handed effort. All be-
cause he had the spark. Take
Tiny Wright a few years ago. No
matter what you'd say to that
guy, he never had the pepper.
It's a funny thing."
Mr. George Lawton, who, for 20
years, picked all-state high school
football teams for a Detroit paper, is
listening. I have forgotten what Mr.
Lawton was wearing, but here's what
he said:
"I disagree with you, Wallie. Take
Stan Wells back in 1910 or 1911. He
was one of those lethargic guys,
phlegmatic is a good word. Never
could get the drive in him. During
one game Mr. Wells went into a pile
of players and came out the reci-
pient of a good sock in the nose.

Exclusive Story Reveals
Wolverine Athlete Will
Fight In Detroit Soon
By TOM PHARES
Big Don Siegel, the University of
Michigan's gridiron star and state
amateur heavyweight boxing cham-
pion, will be the new "white hope" in
mid-western fight circles today when
those of the. fistic fraternity learn
that he has decided to enter the pro-
fessional ring.
In an exclusive release to the Daily,
the giant Wolverinthas revealed that
he plans to open his assault on the
pro heavyweight division a week from
Friday and hopes, by fighting every
three weeks, to soon battle his way
into the big money class.
He climaxed his amateur career at
Kalamazoo last night by knocking
out Bud Copeland of Niles, in the first
round to successfully defend his
Tournament of Champions title.
To Fight In Detroit
Matchmakers in Detroit have al-
ready promised the Royal Oak star
a spot on a Detroit Arena card the
latter part of this month and al-
though his opening fight March 10
has not been definitely set, it will.
be staged in this immediate vicinity.
Siegel is the most feared fighter
in Michigan's amateur rings. ,e has
floored 11 of his 13 opponents since
I first pulling on a glove less than four
years ago and during the last two
years virtually every amateur heavy-
weight in the state of any conse-
quence has ducked engagements to
meet him.
In the opinion of many observers,
Siegel is right how better than any
pro fighter in Michigan except Joe
Louis and perhaps Roscoe Toles.
Beaten Only Once
The only two men ever to last
three rounds with the six foot four
inch Wolverine are Cedric Sweet,
former Michigan fullback, who was
decisioned at the Field House and
Don Van of Pontiac who holds the
only victory over Siegel, a decision
won three years ago at Jackson.
*At the time of that fight, Van was
the state Golden Gloves champion
with 30 fights under his belt while
Siegel was a novice entering his
fourth bout. He has repeatedly at-
tempted to get a return match with
Van but has been either refused or

avoided each time. Van recently won
the Detroit Diamond Belt crown and
is fighting at Chicago in the national
tourney.
Siegel starred at tacklefon the
Michigan football squad for three
seasons and was chosen to play in the
annual East-West all-star game last
January. Following his return to
Ann Arbor, Don received offers from
the Detroit Lions, New York Giants
and Philadelphia Eagles pro football
teams but decided to pass them up in
favor of the squared circle.
His gridiron accomplishments won
him honorable mention on the Grant-
land Rice All-America team.
Boxing Coach Vern Larson, the
man who developed Siegel, believes
the fighter has an excellent chance to
make a name for himself in the pro-
fessional ring.
"This is just the time for a good
white' heavyweight to step in," says
Vern. "Don still has things to learn
but he has a terrific punch and can
hit with either hand."
Answering Larson's call for fresh-
man fighters four years ago, Siegel
proved to be a "natural" and slashed
his way in short order to the :State
Golden Gloves title, Detroit CYO
crown and many other tourney cham-
pionships.
He has been working out in Detroit
with such pro heavyweights as Stan-
ley Evans and Roscoe Toles.
