Problem Arises IntFinding Foe
For Don SiegelInBoxing Show
By HERB LEVI
If matchmakers Vern Larsen and1
Marty 'Levandowski can successfully
solve a problem the solution of which
has proved a particular nemesis to
them during the past three years,
then Michigan boxing fans who at-
tend the campus boxing show spon-
sored by Congress on Jan. 17, will
get an opportunity to see one of the
state's most promising young heavy-
weight fighters in action.
The problem child is big Don Siegel,
210 pound Varsity tackle, who be-
sides rating All-American mention
on the gridiron, has shown enough
promise in the ring to be feared by
all the ranking heavyweights in the
It all started three years back.
Vern Larsen, frosh ring coach needed
an opponent for his one available
heavyweight prospect, a lad named
Jack Peters. A hurried call for
heavyweights was sent out and the
six foot four gridder, eager to keep
in training during the off-season, re-
sponded, in spite of the fact that' he
had never donned the gloves before.
Don's debut was a huge success
in spite of his inexperience. After
pounding out an easy de'cision over
Peters, the husky gridder looked for
new worlds to conquer. It wasn't
long before there wasn't a student in
the University whom the coaches
considered talented enough to give
big Don a battle. Neighborhood ath-
letic clubs had to be scoured to pro-
vide a suitable opponent for him.
Siegel has come a long way since
his freshman year. At present his
record stands at 10 victories in 11
bouts, eight of these coming via the
knockout route. The lone pugilist to
hold a decision over Don is one Don
Van of Jackson who decisioned the'
star tackle when the atter was still. a
beginner. Siegel has been clamor-j
ing for revenge ever since but Van
has managed to sidestep him thus
far, refusing several offers to appear
[in campus boxing shows.
The high point of big Don's career
came last March when he journeyed
to Grand Rapids to meet up with the
state's best, and came back with the
Michigan Golden Gloves heavyweight
title after he had been forced to fore-
go the local Gloves tournament due
to a football injury.

With each succeeding fight, it be-
comes harder and harder to match
Siegel. His former opponents are
never interested in return matches.
But nevertheless Larsen and Levan-
dowski are hopeful. They will leave
no stone unturned in their search
through the clubs in the district for a
suitable adversary for the giant foot-
ball star, since it is their hope to fur-
nish the fans with as good a show as

bined with their front line handicaps,
nullified their victory hopes.
So tight did the Illini guard, and
so far off was Michigan offensive-
ly, that they were held to only seven
baskets in the game. Three of these
came within the last minute and a
half when the visitors spurted briefly.
Both teams substituted frequently,
but Michigan could never organize
its defenses against the Illini's meth-
odical slow-breaking offense. Tom
Harmon and Russ Dobson succeeded
Rae in the center slot, but the latter
was sorely missed, especially in the
guarding of Dehner whom he watched
in the first half. Harmon filled in
for Rae in the first half and played

T WO DAYS and two letters, almost
enough to inflate the columnar
ego. This one has an unusual twist
but just to maintain our policy of
printing about anything you readers
have courage to tender, here goes.
The battle of the century, the
the race for the prize of the title
will be distinguished by the par-
ticipation of one of the outstand-
ing campus sports figures. Hear
ye one and all, four Washtenaw
houses are sponsoring, backing,
aiding and abetting (without his
asking us, too) Hercules Renda
for the crown of QUEEN of the
Ice Carnival. We feel that, since
rever before has Michigan gone
in for this queen stuff, we really
ought to do it up well and make it
something unusual if we are go-
ing to start having our own
royalty. To keep the record
straight and as an active cam-
paign manager, I feel that I
should say that our candidate has
not been consulted about the
honors we wish to heap upon him.
Michigan collegians, we give
you Hercules Renda, our choice,
and we feel sure your choice, for
Queen of the Ice Carnival.
Thanx for the hall, Bud.
I understand that certain subver-
sive influences around ye olde publi-
cation bldg. are challenging this en-
try with a well organized campaign
to elect Jack Brennan, football adon-
is. to this coveted position. Hey, girls,
look me over! '
TRACK Captain Bill Watson. who is
not enrolled in school this semes-
ter, is a member of the Joe Louis en-
tourage at Pompton Lakes, N.J.,
where the Brown Bomber is training
for his impending championship
fight with John Henry Lewis.
Watson dropped the following lines
to his buddy Bill Reed of the publicity
department from his New Jersey

enjoying my' job. This fellow
Joe Louis is just like a tiger-
my how he can hit. I'll give you
some more dope later.
Bill, former Golden Glces chain-
pion of Saginaw, is employed by Louis
as a secretary. Joe is a keen ad-
mirer of Bill and has watched his
progress at Michigan intently. There
have been rumors to the effect that
when Watson graduates, he will en-
ter the ring under the tutelage of
John Roxborough, Julian Black, and
Jack Blackburn, Louis' handlers.
Watson will definitely return to
school in February, however, and in-
tends to get his degree. He is slated
to enter a strong bid for a place on
the 1940 Olympic squad.

night, Jan. 12, and and for first class
tennis I guess that can't be beaten.
Unquestionably the two finest tennis
players in the world today, Budge,'
who won every major amateur title
during the past three years, has been
shellacking Vines, who led the pros
during the same period.
The place is Olympia Gardens in
Detroit. The time 8:30 p.m. Also on
the program are Bruce Barnes and,
Richard Skeen. There will be two
singles and one doubles match. Seats
range from $1.10 to $3.30.

OTHER THAN SPORTS: No matter
how ardent an anti-Nazi you may
b, you can't help but recognize the
vicious propaganda in a current article
in "Click," one of the madder photo-
mags . . . Entitled "To Hell With
Lindbergh," the piece drags the heri-
tage of Bruno Hauptmann into the
Picture, describes the German am-
bassador as "slinking back to Ger-
many like a cur," and so obviously
tries to build circulation that it
loses any semblance of value . . .
The style of the article is comparable
to that of the "Voelkischer Beobach-
ter," one of Herr Hitler's cruder sheets
.It leaves one with the imnpres-
sion that nothing is ever gained by
calling people dirty names . . .
Sign of the times: Visit the
local malted milk emporium
across from Angell Hall and for
the sum of only a nickel listen to
W. Lee O'Daniel, governor of the
great state of Texas, sing "Con-
grtulate Mc" on the nickelodian

band accompanying the ex-flour
salesman . . For a dime you
may be able to get Senator Bilbo
crooning "You Must Have Been

PICKUPS: Fritz Crisler, Clarence
Munn, and Earl Martineau visit
Muskegon Jan. 10 to address a ban-
quet feting the undefeated and un-
tied football team of North Muskegon
High School . . . The Northside
squad will be augmented by seniors
of other local high schools . . . Mr.
Lynn Waldorf of Northwestern Uni-
versity is a frequent visitor to this
mecca of football talent . . . They
say that under Crisler last season
Michigan played to 400,000 fans, the
greatest number in the post-depres-
sion era and netted $90,000 more than
last year when $120,000 was made ...
That's real sugar, boys and girls.
