verines, also contributed during the
closely fought first period with three
field goals.
The second period found Michigan
turning back the one Iowa threat and
then going on to soundly wallop the
Hawkeyes, who became completely
demoralized as the contest grew older.
With Harmon, Thomas, Pink and
Leo Beebe all contributing the Hawk-
eyes never had a chance. Dick Evans,
substitute center for Iowa, dumped
in a short one from beneath the bas-
ket, butaHarmon evened that a
moment later and the Wolverines
drew away to a 38 to 27 lead early in
the period, Anapol and Tommy Lind
forwards, contributing Iowa's only
Stephens' inability to play cost him
the scoring leadership of the con-
ference. Before the game started he
was leading Pick Dehner o' Illinois
by two points with a total of 56
points gained in conference play.
He was reported by Dr. W. W.
Shayne, team physician, to be suf- I
fering with a fever of 102 degrees,
and also a badly infected throat. He
occupied the Iowa bench throughout
the entire game.
The Wolverines outplayed Iowa in
every department of the game. They
capitalized on 21 of their 70 shots at
the basket, while Iowa could hit only
12 times in 71 attempts. Sloppy ball
handling, combined with the speed
of the Michigan forwards also con-
tributed to the Hawkeye downfall.

Team Short Of Money
NEW YORK, Jan. 31.-(A')-The
American Olympic, Committeeto-
day reported commendable progress
in financing teams for the 1940
games at St. Moritz, Switzerland, and
Helsingfors, Finland.
Nation-wide drives by such organ-
izations as the United States Junior
Chamber of Commerce and The Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Association,
in addition to separate campaigns by
the individual sports committees, al-
ready have assured sufficient funds
for all but one of the winter sports
teams and promised more of the same
for the summer teams.
Since the winter games come first
on the calendar, financing of their
teams was the more urgent problem.
With the exception of the bob-sled-
ders, it is such no longer.
The United States Figure Skating
Association has agreed to under-
write its team of seven, to be chosen
on the results of the present National
Championships at St. Paul and the
North American Championships at
Toronto, Feb. 3-4. Collection boxes
and the sale of pins and other em-
blems are bringing in the necessary
Scash for the speed skaters, eight of
whom will be chosen to go abroad on
the basis of tryouts

ANDOM JOTTINGS of a man with his heart in his mouth:
Matt Mann can well be proud of his swimmers after their Friday night
tie with Ohio State . . For sheer, dogged courage Mann's teams have
few rivals . . .This corner got a real kick when Ed Hutchens nosed Billy
Quayle out in that final lap of the free-style relay . . . Quiet, good-natured
Hutch has been paddling around for over a season now trying to make
people believe that he could really swim, but his playboy reputation dogged
him until fate threw him into the clutch . . . I'll never forget the look on
his face as he awaited his turn in the relay nor will I forget Tom Haynie

"Speed it up", was the cry of col-
legiate wrestling fans last year be-
fore the high officials heeded their
discontent and took drastic means
to remedy the situation. Until that
time, collegiate wrestling had been
flinching incessantly from such sharp
and degratoryremarks as, "It's too
dull for me to even sit through,"
"These college fellas go to it at a
snail's pace compared to the pros,"
and "What satisfaction does a guy
get from winning a match by merely
sitting on top of the other fellow?"
The officials in charge realized that
the popularity of collegiate wrestling
would wane so long as the sport did
not please the fans. Accordingly,
they set out to liven up the game, and
provide a real incentive for the wrest-
lers themselves to give all they have
in order to earn the decision.
Matches -Dragged
In former years, college grapplers
were content with riding or staying
behind their man in order to win a
match, for the rules so allowed. The
time advantage was all-important.
The wrestlers may have gone for it,
true, but the fans didn't and that's
what counts if a sport is to keep its
head above water. I
Last year the rules committee'
initiated a point system whereby each,
wrestler is awarded a certain num-
ber of points for executing attacks
and counter-attacks. The result has

been that the boys now find a real
incentive behind their matches. The
opportunity to pile up more points
than the other fellow appeals to
them, and has speeded the sport con-
siderably, so that a great majority of
the matches are now replete with un-
anticipated thrills.
Point System Method
Here is the way the point system
works: (1) Two points are awarded
to the man who takes his opponent
to the mat and goes behind him. (2)
One point is awarded to the man who
succeed in breaking his opponent's
hold and escapes. (3) Two points are
awarded to the man who escapes
from his opponent's hold and suc-
ceeds in taking him down or going
behind him. (4) Three points are
awarded to the man who secures a
/near fall on his opponent, only to.
have the latter escape from this per-
ilous position. (5) One point is
awarded for every minute that a man
rides his opponent, i.e. stays behind
and on top of him.
The Intercollegiate Wrestling Asso-
ciation has added more measures this
year in an effort to make the sport
even more speedy and interesting to
watch. Hereafter, any stalling on the
part of a wrestler automatically
makes him liable to disqualification
by the referee, and furthermore, the
same goes for any wrestler who goes
off the mat with the intention of9
making a fresh start.

bending beside him with a reassuring: "Want me to hold your hand, Hutch"
. . .Ed answered with a smile that seemed to take more effort than his
100 yards did . . . Can you forget the way Hutchens' teammates dove into
the water to embrace him, duck him, splash him, and perhaps even kiss
him? . . . All four of the Michigan relay swimmers were "dished" . . . It
was the third race of the evening for Beebe, Barker, and Holmes, and Hutch
had the fastest 100 yard dash man in the country on his tail . . . Thei
crowd went completely mad at the close, for the finish was photographic
. . Two of the three judges called the relay a tie, but the head judgef
gave the decision to Michigan . . The explanation offered by starter
Clarence Pinkston to Ohio Coach Mike Peppe was that Quayle, in reaching?
for the finish, was short with his last stroke and had to push along under
water to touch . . . Superfluous note :-Peppe didn't agree . . . Pinkston
said there was no overruling the head judge unless it was a split decisiont
Peppe countered that there is no head judge in a relay . . . Superfluoust
note:-The decision stood.
ADD ORCHIDS -To Charley Barker for that tremendous relay lap
To Jim Welsh who has three enviable years ahead . . . To
John Haigh for his great effort in the breaststroke . . . To Al Patnik
who didn't make a real mistake all evening . . . Al got four 10 point
ratings from the very discriminating judge (that's perfect you know)
. . . Pinkston, an Olympic diving champ, calls Patnik and his. team-
mate Earl Clark "America's two finest divers" . . . Add a salute to Hal
Benham for his excellent diving against top competition . . . And to
Beebe and Barker who are just what the doctor ordered-plus!
And of course to Matt Mann for his effervescence, for his indomitable
determination to win, for his ever present sportsmanship, and for his
unquestionable coaching genius.
IN BETWEEN SPLASHES:--Sat next to an excited Fielding H. Yost
who kept sizing up the crowd with an appraising eye and audibly
winced when Mann passed with a "told you to build me a bigger pool,
Coach" . . . Don't be surprised if the Board starts really considering
the move . . . Yost was "berling" at half-pint Peppe when the latter
played a stalling game before the 440 . . . Labeled him as "a durn little
jack rabbit" . . . Stanhope hadn't been out of the water long after
swimming a beautiful race in the backstroke, and he obviously wasn't
ready for 440 duty . . . After a lot of bench strategem, all directed at
giving Curley a rest, the swimmers took their marks . . . Of course El
Woodling, Curley's teammate, jumped the gun to give Stanhope further
rest, but the poor guy fell in with Woodling, to the delight of the Miehi-
gan bench . . .' Matt yelled a "what's the matter, Curley, tired?", and
poor Stanhope answered with a half-hearted smile . . . He dropped
out after 10 laps . . . They say Haynie, who hasn't reached top form
yet, is the only man in the Conference who can beat Welsit.
THE LAST LAP:-Jack Kasley was "riding" John Higgins before the start
of the breast-stroke from his perch on the high-board . . . With the
Ohio bugaboo out of the way and exams almost here, there was nevertheless
no holiday for the swimmers last night as Matt took them to Buffalo for an
exhibition . . . Detroit society was conspicuous in the good seats and they
cheered vociferously . . . In fact the only time the crowd was quiet was
during the diving . . . Patnik unflatteringly calls Quayle "coon dog" . .
Paul Warren, sports editor of the Ohio State Lantern, barged over to the
press table just before the opening gun, and sat on about six inches of
bench . . . He tells me that Stanhope, a really fine back-stroker, used to
be an average swimmer but much too pudgy to take seriously . . . He's lost
20 pounds since Beebe last beat him in the A.A... . . Haynie keeps fretting
about the Yale meet which he says will be "tough" . . . All three judges
unanimously gave second place in the breast-stroke to Alex McKee although
the crowd figured Haigh had won by a shade . . . Johnny butterflied all
the way while both Higgins and McKee switched to the old orthodox style
for rest .

A 30-foot putt rolled in for Smith
on the 16th, giving him a birdie 4 on
the 566-yard layout and he coasted
out by halving the 17th in par 5.
