The Missing Link...
THINGS we've been wondering
about lately department: What
has happened to the University of
Chicago answer to th recent rebuff
handed them at the athletic direc-
tors' meeting in the Windy City? Will
it all be allowed to blow over? Will
Chicago strike back? Or will the
Midway administration decide to de-
ny the "unofficial spokesman" who so
irked the rest of the Conference with
his outspoken indictment of athletic
practices prevalent throughout the
Big Ten?
The first is a good possibility.
No doubt the Conference is pretty
well pleased with itself about hav-
ing so publicly rebuked the Ma-
roons. It probably feels that its
hands are now clean (how could
they be otherwise) and that in
the public eye it is as innocent as
a, as a ., what is that cliche?
Oh yes, innocent as a new born
Incidentally, Arch Ward in the Chi-
cago Tribune claimed recently that
the "unofficial spokesman" was none
other than President Robert Hutch-
ins. And that he made the accusa-
tions at a banquet on the 27th of
December. He neglected to mention
what time it was.
. * * *
AIN'T civilization wonderful? Ans-
wer: yes civilization is wonder-
ful. Proof: instead of having the old
high jump standards, under which
conditions, a jumper may clear only
one given height at a time, they'll
substitute some sort of light ray be-
tween the standards.
In this new state of affairs
Oscar Sidecar will jump at the
bar which has been placed at six
feet two inches. All of a sudden
it happens. He feels that his girl
is communicating with him
through, the mental waves.. New
life pours into him; he is revital-

ized without the use of hair tonic.
Six feet two is no problem. He
needs new worlds to conquer. He
jumps; he's up and over. Six two-
bah. Child's play. He must have
cleared it by eight inches. But alas,
no one will ever know about it.
But wait-in walks Prof. 0. Howie
Smartiam. He is waving a light
wave in his hand. (They're really
very simple to carry). "Eureka," he
shouts. Oscar Sidecar, of course,
pays no attention because he knows
his name isn't Eureka. He is still
doing that thing that is only men-
tioned in polite society in connection
with dog shows because he knows how
high he jumped.
But the good professor is not
to be denied. He shoves this light
wave under the nose of a man
with a badge.. This badge-wearer
turns out to be a cop, however,
so after getting out of jail the
professor takes it (the lightwave
not the jail) to the official and
says "that boy Sidecar leaped six
six feet ten inches. He inter-
cepted a light wave at that
"You're right," says the A.A.U. offi-
eial and immediately he walks over
to the delighted Sidecar, kisses him
on both cheeks and says "son, you're
the new world's record holder."
This is quite obviously a fairy tale
because not only does it take 12
months to get a record accepted but
any time an A.A.U. official walks
over to a Sidecar he doesn't kiss it
on both cheeks. He drinks it.

LATEST reports on the swimming
team's trip to Yale this week is
that not only won't they take the
pullman on that 750 mile jaunt ',s we
suggested but they won't even go by
day coach as their plans now have it.
They will swim there via the Great
Lakes and the old Erie Barge Canal.
This not only saves money but keeps
them in good condition.

Diamond Star
Aids At Anua
Baseball' Clinic
Roger Peckinpaugh, former major
leaguer and ex-manager of the Cleve-
land Indians and New Orleans Peli-
cans, dropped around to the Field
House yesterday afternoon to aid
Coach Ray Fisher in presenting the
baseball portion of the University's
annual clinic for high school coaches
and athletes.
Peckinpaugh, who is now co-pub-
licity director for the American
League, had shown the league's film'
"Touching All Bases to a large stu-
dent audience at the Natural Science
Auditorium in the morning.
The one-time Cleveland star com-
mented while Wolverine infielders
Mike Sofiak, Bill Steppon and George
Ruehle put on a demonstration of
"Infield Work."
He was especially impressed with
the fielding of Sofiak and Step-
pon, Wolverine keystone combina-
tion, and lingered after the clinic to
impart to Sofiak a few pointers on
shortstopping that the former major
league star had gleaned in his 22
years in the big show.

and Bob Harrison, light-heavy.
Fenske Wins At Chicago
CHICAGO, March 23.-(P)-Char-
les Fenske, University of Wisconsin
graduate student, won his eighth
straight mile victory of the indoor
season tonight in the Chicago Relays,
breaking the meet record with a
time of four minutes 7.9 seconds.

Today marks the first anniversary
of a stunning upset in the swimming
It was just 366 days ago that a frail
looking natator named Charley Bark-
er hurled his slight frame into the
I-M tank for the start of the Na-
tional Collegiate 50-yard freestyle
There weren't many in the stands
that night that figured the Wolfer-
ine sophomore would win. He was
purely a leg swimmer, depending al-
most entirely on a powerful kick. He
was the kind of competitor that never
felt exactly right, but never seemed
to worry much about it. Before that
night, the kid was mainly a back-
stroker, having set a new Big Ten
record in the dorsal qualifiers of the
Conference meet two weeks before
only to lose in thewfinals to Ohio's
Harold Stanhope.
But from start to finish on that
fateful eve of March 24, it was young
Charley Barker out in front. Under
the greatest of pressure, he thrashed
the 50 in :23.5 to become a National'
Collegiate champion. It was a stun-
ning upset indeed, for such experi-
enced notables as Walt Tomski, his
favored roommate, Paul Wolf, Billy
Quayle and Johnny Good were taking
part in the sprints against him.
And on the following night, a calm
and cool performer named Barker
came through again. In the century'
he tied Wolf for the title in :52.9
and came back later to swim the lead-
off lap on the victorious Wolverine
400-yard freestyle relay team.
But that was a year ago, and the
National Collegiates are coming up
again, this next weekend in fact at
the Payne Whitney Natatorium in
New Haven. For Barker, that means
a defense of both sprint titles.

Mates In DThel For Swim Title ...
Calm, Cool Barker Threatens
Sharemet For Century Crown

the Wolverine speedster will be high-
ly favored to repeat. He hasn't been
defeated this year in the event. He
has turned in the best time recorded
throughout the nation, :23.2 and in
only one meet, the Wayne clash, was
his victory a close one.
It's in the century, however, that
Barker is expected to have his real
battle. Teammate Gus Sharemet, the
big and powerful sophomore, will be
the favored entry when the cartridge
explodes in New Haven. The two
have met three times this year over
the 100-yard course, and Sharemet
has finished first on all three occa-
sions. In only one, the Wayne meet
again, did Barker threaten. He staged
a tremendous final spurt, but just
fell short of overcoming his husky
Barker has defeated Gus just once
so far and that was in a 220-yard
exhibition against Michigan State in
which Sharemet clowned and Char-
ley's winning time was far from in-
From past performances, from best
times, from power and strength, it
appears to be Sharemet all the way
in the century this weekend. Big
Gus has done :52.1. Experts have
called him the greatest freestyle pros-
pect in natatorial history. His possi-
bilities are unlimited.
But don't count his junior rival out
of that race as yet. It was just a
year ago that Tomski dove off the
wall an overwhelming favorite. But
he gave way when the chips were
down to a calm and cool performer
a guy named Barker.

Champions Against The Field ...
Unibeaten Aggies Are Favorites
To Retain National Mat Crown

Phone 730F14 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

CE a

As Coach Cliff Keen whips his
varsity matmen into shape for a shot
at the national title next week-end,
it's a safe bet that not far back in
his mind looms the form of his alma
mater, Oklahoma A & M.
It isn't a matter of reminiscing
for Coach Keen, but an immediate
and pressing problem. If the Wol-
verines, or, for that matter, any
squad in the field, are to win the
championship, they will have to take
it away from the Aggies, defending
champions. A glance at the records
will explain just why this will be
no easy task.
Cowboys Have Clean Slate
Oklahoma's Cowboy grapplers fin-
ished their dual meet season two
weeks ago with a perfect record,
running their current win streak to
27. They ran up an average score of
21 points per match, as against a
5-point average for each of ten
opponents. Four intersectional vic-
tories were included, over Virginia
Military Institute, Navy, Indiana, the
Big Ten champions, and Illinois. In
their own territory the Aggies took
their sixth Oklahoma League title.
No opponent won more than two
matches, and no Aggie was pinned
all season.

This would cause a furore in any
ordinary town, but to the fans in
Stillwater it was just another sea-
son. The following burst of enthu-
siasm from the Daily O'Collegian,
Oklahoma A and M's student news-
paper, gives some idea: "Ho-Hum-
Great Puncher Matmen Turn In An-
other Perfect Record."
Aggies Seek 11th Crown
Don't get the idea that the Aggie
student body isn't loyal. It's just
that such seasons have become a
habit. Coach Ed 'Gallagher's 1940
edition, in going undefeated, was on-
ly duplicating' the feat of 18 of its
predecessors in the past 23 years.
In that period the' Aggie grapplers
have turned in 137 dual meet vic-
tories, four ties, and five defeats.
When the Cowboys travel to Chart-
paign, Illinois, next week, they will
be shooting for their 11th national
college mat title.
And of all the coaches who will
send their men against Oklahoma in
the nationals, none realizes the mag-
nitude of his task better than Mich-
igan's Coach Cliff Keen. He can ap-
preciate their power, for he was a
member of the Aggies back in 1922,
'23, and '24, when they went unde-
feated for three consecutive seasons.
