PRESS PASSES
-_____ By BUD BENJAMIN
R ANDOM JOTTINGS of a man with bloodshot eyes:
Trudged through the slush to make the rounds of some of the winter
sports yesterday . . . Enroute to Athleticsville bumped into a very spry Jeep
Mehaffey and asked him how he liked his Cleveland reception . . . You see,
the Jeep, Paul Kromer, and Ralph Fritz, after a week's toil at the Detroit post
office, headed for home aboard the same freight . . . At Cleveland they
were met by an enthusiastic alumni group, hustled to a downtown hotel, a
banquet, and speeches . . . Taken by surprise, the boys had a real treat . .
Mehaffey and Fritz had to catch a train for their Pennsylvania home and
left the none-too-verbose Kromer holding the speech-bag . . Must ask a
weather expert some day how this town manages such a chummy climate
The inside of the Field House smelled pungently familiar as the ath-
letes sweated miscellaneous brews out of their system . . . Cornered Bennie'
Oosterbaan sitting on the timekeepers table adjacent to the basketball court
and asked him what happened against Toledo . . . "We lost." he replied and
being thus enhanced by this bit of inside dope, I proceeded to pump a little
about this basketball team which has won six out of seven games.
"We have had to battle in every game," reported Bennie. "Haven't
had a real coast yet. Against Toledo defensive oversights beat us, and
we failed to hit on numerous shots. The sophomores are coming along,
but not fast enough. Need experience, and I'm playing them all I can.
"Injuries hurt us plenty," he continued never taking his eyes off the
court. "Beebe had a sprained ankle, Rae a lame back, and Smick had a
head injury. We've looked good and bad. Against Syracuse we were
putrid. Against Cornell good. Last night we were'nt as sharp as Toledo
although Rae played a swell game. Held Chuckovits to 10 points and con-
trolled the backboard well.
"The whole damn Conference is tough. We play Illinois and North-
western away this week-end. Bad stuff. Don't let Northwestern fool you.
They never start until they play in the Conference.
"Brother, we may not win a game but watch us scrap."
IN THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK: Cliff Keen reports that Indiana, which
opens the Conference wrestling season here, Jan. 13, will have one of the
strongest outfits in the country . . . Matt Mann's well built swimmers,
colored a pretty cocoa after a Florida sojourn, leave this chronicler wishfully
thinking . . . Arch Kodros, who apparently delights in his title of arch
mysoginist, reports that he stayed home all but three nights of the vacation
. "Three shows," informs the captain-elect . . . Ralph Heikkinen played
almost the entire East-West game, and, along with Don Siegel, should be back
Friday . . . Mrs. Charlotte Fish, the charming secretary in the athletic
office, is ill with a sinus infection . . . John Townsend scouted the Illinois
game last night .
VACATION MEMOS: Cornell and Indiana appeared on a basketbal]
card in Cleveland over the holidays, and I journeyed to WTAM, the local
station, to meet the coaches of the two outfits before they took the air on
Tom Manning's sportscast.
Talked to Blair Gillion of Cornell, whose outfit had been beaten by Michi-
gan, and to Branch McCracken of Indiana, who succeeded Everett Dean this
year when the latter moved to Stanford.
Said Gillion: "Michigan has a good ball club. We had a 13 to 2 lead
on them but couldn't hold it. Our boys misplayed Rae (Ed. note:-and
how, for 19 points!) and that hurt. This is my first year at Cornell, and
the set-up is still new to me. I should say Michigan will do fairly well in
the Big Ten."
Said McCracken:-"We have a pretty fair country ball club. Haven't
been beaten yet. I look for my club, Minnesota, and Ohio State to fight
it out for the title. Although Ohio is losing out on the coast, they have a
very strong club. Minnesota, I hear, is really tough, and we're coming
along. Ernie Andres, my captain, isn't shooting as much as he did last
year, but his passes have been excellent and he is playing the best ball
he has ever played.
PUNDITS DIGEST :-Grantland RICE believes Michigan will be among
the first four football teams in the country in 1939 . . . H. G
SALSINGER claims' that T.C.U. must be rated as the top football team ir
the nation for 1938 and adds that Southern California sidestepped th
Horned Frogs because they were too tough . . . Bob CONSIDINE recall
the golden athletic era of the 1920's and points out that in any sport wher
written records can be kept, the immortals of the last decade play a ver
definite second fiddle. . . Hehry McLEMORE quotes Bob Zuppke as stating
that Michigan's football team could take either Southern Cal or Duke wit
ease. . . Zup saw the Rose Bowl game.

IlliiNoses Out Cornell the start of the game, built it up to
23-13 at intermission and held the
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Jan. 3.-(P)- upper hand until the final two min-
Illinois' undefeated cagers, after utes. At this stage, Lewis (Pick)
trailing for 38 minutes of the game,
fially overtook a stubborn Cornell=Dehner, center, climaxed the Illini's
University team tonight 39 to34. comeback efforts with a field goal
Cornell jumped into the lead at that evened the count at 34-all.

Natators Face
Heat Weather
This January
By MEL FINEBERG
Michigan's N a t i o n a 1 Collegiate
Swimming Champions better not let
their two week sojourn under the
Florida sun and warm weather fool
them. They're going to find plenty of
stormy weather ahead of them in the
swimming pools up north.
The men of Matt Mann returned
'rom the Southland with coats of
bronze and an added two weeks of
zonditioning. They're going to need
she conditioning to meet the heavy
schedule that lies ahead of them.
The heavy work starts this Satur-
day when Matt will take a selected
squad to South Bend for an exhibi-
bion. The meet will be sponsored by
;he Alumni association of South Bend
md as usual, the men of Matt Manr
will put on a good show.
Hold A.A.U.'s Here
But the real competition will be-
in, like charity, at home. On the
L3th of this month, the University
tnd the Intramural Building will play
lost to the. Michigan A.A.U. chain-
>ionships. Swimmers will come from
he strong Detroit clubs, from up-
state and from the west to try to wrest
supremacy from the Wolverine nata-
tors.
There will be five events for men,
the 100-yard free style, 220-yard
areast stroke, 150-yard back stroke
aigh diving and a 200 yards free
style relay. For the women there will
3e diving off the lpw board and the
100 yard free style.
In addition to these there will be
3wo special handicap events-50-yard
or both men and women.
Ohio State Is Next
And then comes the real test-the
first dual meet with Ohio State, Big
ren champions, on the 20th. This
meet is the one for which the boys
and Matt Mann have been pointing.
The _ lash will be a good indication
3f where the Conference and National
Collegiate Championships will finally
land.
The respite after the Buckeye meet
will only be a short one. The very
!ext day the Wolverines will hie
themselves off to Buffalo to meet a
selected group of all-stars from Wes-
tern New York.
