rTHE REFUSAL of the local nation-
al guard to loan their ring to
Congress for the boxing show this
*ionth is, after all, a triviality. This
corner has no ,desire to lend its hall
as an airing ground for petty dis-
pites, but a letter received yesterday
atornng contains several implications
that warrant publication. The author
Is Capt. Garnet J. Burlingame, com-
manding officer of Co. K of the
guard, and pomoter of the Ann Ar-
bor Golden Gloves tournaments. With
his permission I have deleted super-
fluous sections:
Mr. Bud Benjamin
Michigan Daily
Ann Arbor, Mich.
Dear Mr. Benjamin:I
It has always appeared to me that '
both sides of any subject covered in
any newspaper should be touched on
by the writer before the item goes in
and inasmuch as this apparently was
tot done, I am taking the liberty of
making you aware of the Guard's
*easons for its refusal of its ring. It
is very true that Co. K has received
the loan of the Athletic Assn. chairs
during the past Golden Glove Tourna-
ments and as its Commanding Offi-
cer I have consistently expressed my
appreciation of that loan. For the
past six years this appreciation has
been demonstrated in one way by
the loan of our ring to the Assn. for
shows held at the Field House.
Last year after the tournament
we built a floor ring in the base-
ment of the armory and in doing
so we used about half of our regu-
lar portable ring. The floor ring
has been used daily for the past
month and is now being used
daily and nightly by our boxing
staff in preparing the local boys
for the forthcoming Golden
Gloves. Taking the floor ring
down to permit the portable ring
to be used will entail considerable
time and work and in so doing
would deprive the staff of the use
of the floor ring. At the time of
the tournament we intend to take
it down-but of course training
will be over with at that time.
While it is our desire to cooperate
and be helpful in every wayos-
sible-it was my opinion that we
would be unable to permit our
ring to be used this year.
If any representative of the Ath-
letic Assn. had requested the use of
itur ring-I would have gladly gone
to the necessary trouble of providing
It for them in return for the help of
the last six years. However, no one
from the Assn. requested the ring,
and I accordingly do not feel that
Co. K can be honestly charged with
Jack of appreciation for assistance
it hias received from the Assn.
Concerning the entry of Uni-
yersty boxers in our forthcom-
bIg tournament-I simply have
the following to~say'-University
boys have participated in the
past and as individuals have al-
ways been a credit to themselves
and to the University. They have
assisted in presenting to the local
boxing fans some very interesting
bouts. However-I have always
found that in many instances
they have been poorly handled
and at times very ill advised by
their coach. As an example, I
might state that instance after
instance comes to my memory
where a match came up where
there was a likliness of the cam-
pus boy losing his bout and rath-
er than permit the lad to go in
and possibly taste defeat as well
as victory-the Campus lad
would be withdrawn by his coach.
This of course never proved help-
ful to the progress of the tourna-

University boxers are more
than welcome to enter the Golden
Gloves and we would be very glad
to have them. It seems to me
that we are providing an oppor-
tunity for the boxing Minded lads
to use their pugilistic ability in a
worthwhile program. In winning
titles here they could go oz and
gain statewide recognition in box-
ing. However the decision of en-
tering or not entering rests with
them-but it seems to me that
the decision should be theirs and
not that of their coach-as I1
understand it to be. The real
basic reason why continued rela-
tions with University boxers (at
least the Freshmen boxers) are
not friendly has to do with 'Cross-
ing of the Palm,' and if you are
interested in further details con-
cerning this point I shall be glad
to make you aware of them.
My real reason for writing you
has been to present to you the case
of Co. K's refusal of the use of its
portable ring. I hope that I have
a~rv.ri in tP'',~4vnl i ., rr t vv, ,fo

Heikkinen, Siegel Get '
Bid To All-Star Game
Gridders Ralph Heikkinen and Don
Siegel, who Just recently returned
from the east-West All-Star game,
yesterday received invitations to en-
age in another all-star classic be-
ore the year is out.
The two Wolverine senior linemen
will play side-by-side this time in the
annual College All-Star-Professional
game at Chicago Aug. 30. The contest,
which is sponsored by the Chicago
Tribune, will bring together the
cream of last year's crop and the.
world's professional champion New
York Giants.
Keen's Squad
Defeats East's
Rest Matmen
Some people may claim that inter-
sectional encounters don't carry as
much weight as the scores would in-
dicate, but when Michigan's wrestlers
cane home Sunday with Penn State
and New York A.C. in their victory
bag, it removed the last inkling of a
doubt that the Wolverines are clear-
ly superior to whatever the East has
to offer.
Started Last Year
Last year, Coach Cliff Keen's pun-
ishing crew amassed no less than 85
points to their Eastern opponent's
nine with utter routs over Temple, 36
to 0; Lehigh, 27 to 3; and Penn State,
22 to 6. And just to add insult to
injury, they further humiliated the
most staunch supporters of eastern
sports last weekend by whipping
Penn State, 16 to 12, and New York
A.C., 20 to 8, to make it five in a row
since the middle of last season. -
More weight can oe lent to the
ability of the Wolverine grapplers by
a look at their personal intersection-
al records, in which it is found that
members of this year's undefeated
team have won 18 out of their 26
meetings with Eastern foes since the
start of last season.
Nichols Boys Lead
The Nichols brothers, Harold and
-Don, certainly can't be convinced that
their Eastern friends have much on
the ball, for they each won three
straight matches last year and came
through in, both Eastern meets last
week. Three of lDon's five victories
were by falls, against Paul Risser of
Temple and Elliot Small of Lehigh
last year and N.Y.A.C.'s Charlie Pow-
erb, tastern Intercollegiate champ,
last Saturday.
Jim Merika boasts two pins and
one decision over Eastern rivals in
three starts since last year, while For-
rest "Butch" Jordan, who did not
wrestle last season, found the going
easy in his two victories at Penn
State and N.Y.A.C

was a blow to Michigan. Until he
went out the visitors were in front
28-24, but the life went out of the
squad as he left the floor. Although
Ohio flooded the floor with subs in the
last five minutes, after building up
a conmfortable lead, the Michigan
boys were unable to do any scoring
of note.
The contest was strictly long-shot
affair, both teams being forced to
shoot from far out because of the
closely-knit defense of the other.
With Hull hitting for 16 points and
Lynch 13, Ohio had a definite edge
at hitting the target, the teams get-I
ting about the same number of shots.
While Michigan snared s 1 field
goals in the opening half, the invad-
ers were able to get but three in the
final session, Harmon getting two
of them in the first couple of min-
utes. Pink, who had four field bas-
kets and a free thow in the first half,
did not see enough second half actionr
to add to his total.
