PAUL WARREN, sports editor of the'
Ohio State Lantern, wins my vote'
of appreciation for the day. Writin '
with a vitrolic naivete and spicing his
piece with some farcical misstate-
ments, Mr. Warren has provided the
most refreshing bit of journalism that
this corner has perused since Mushky
Jackson's Galento story.
Mr. Warren's pungent, albeit
unintended, humor is devastat-
ing. His wrath knows no bounds.
He flays the Miehigan swimming
team, Matt Mann, Clarence
Pinkston, and you folks who
watched proceedings last Friday
night with an unmerciful ire. And
yet, outside of exhibiting a woe-
ful lack of good taste, a total
absence of sportsmanship, and a
wholly Juvenile perspective, Mr.
Warren has made a valuable con-
tribution to the archives of Jour-

Mann as being a member of the "we

clinches his picce by ding deeoly
into the sports muck. Bellyaches he:
"Neither of the ti o Woiv 4
ers (Benham and ,Erst'nfeld
could ever beat Patnik or Clark
with a aver, but ctwa'dly
Matt cvicently didn't bclve thIs.
Whenever Benham, the best of
the two Wolve men, made a dive,
Matt would come through with
his cry, "Great," and the tanei
spectators would aeinost tear thi
roof down with their thunderous
applause. This despite the caliber
of the dive. The judges couldn't
help but being influenced by such
actions, as witness the apparent
close margin by which Clark beat
"Yet when Patnik and Clark
, came through with some of their
geratest dives, a faint ripple of
applause was barely noticeable.
And both Buck divers really
showed the Wolves how it's done."
Thus Mr. Warren ends his master-
piece. Of .course I could go ahead
and point out to this aspiring jour-
nalist that his facts are badly in er-
ror. I could stake the word of the '
entire press corps, who sat directly
across from Matt as I did, that no
such actions were discernible, and
that the applause was evenly divided.
As for the crowd stooging for Matt
as Warren states with his "He

who watch the meets in the Michigan
pool trained to obey his every "wish"
-I'll leave that to you. The crowd
was rich in its applause for Patnik
in my opinion.
I might tell Warren that Michael

not Matt. I might inform him that
there was no change of decision in
the 100 in the duel between Haynie
and Johnson. The announcer re-
ported the wrong decision and had to
be corrected by the officials. There
are other examples-but, ah, why
fret. Anything for a laugh, eh Mr.
Warren! And then there's a repeat
engagement next month, one which
°e are all looking forward to with
h2 keenest of anticipation.

claimed that the writer was

regard to withdrawals in bouts.

comments of its own to make
about this affair and its bearing
on the University's athletic pro-
gram in the near future.

sports editor of the Jackson Citizen

Yankee Star Signs Early
For Thirty Thousand
NEW YORK, Jan. 25.-(IP)-Lou
lehrig, who has played first base for
the New York Yankees in 2,122 con-
secutive games, today signed a con-
tract calling for a salary of between!
$30,000 and $39,000 for 1939, his 15th
season with the world champions.
As baseball's. highest-paid player,
Gehrig received $39,000 last year
vhen he had one of his poorest sea:"
sons. When the new Yankee con-
tracts were put in the mails last Sat-
irday, it was reported the big first
sacker had been asked to take a $9,-
Last night he called at the home
of Edward G. Barrow, newly-elected
president of the club, and the , two
came to what Barrow called "A com-

Lou "appeared satisfied."

Scoring 10 and 12 points in two week-
end starts, the big pivot star now has
accumulated 74 points. In second|
place, but three points removed from
his teammate is Bill Hapac, Illini
forward who advanced from fourth
place to second by virtue of 17 mark-
ers against Wiscoisin.
Still very much in the running for
the scoring title is Ohio State's flashy
forward Jimmy Hull whose record
now totals 58. The Buckeye captain
has participated in only four games,
and boasts an average of 14 plus.
Although benched by a severe case
of influenza, Stephens, Hawkeye cap-
tain and last week's leader, remained
in fourth place in the standings with
56 points in four games.
