Classy Competition...
tomorrow night at the Finnish
Relief Games in Madison Square
Garden against as tough a field as
he's ever faced and at the distance
unfamiliar to him.
The slight two-miler, fresh
from his stunning two-mile vic-
tory over Taisto Maki here last
Saturday, will face milers Gene
Venzke and Chuck Fenske and
two-miler Walter Mehl in a
special mile-and-a-half race.
Schwarzkopf has no illusions
about winning. "These guys are
pretty fast and Fenske is likely
to win by breaking the record,"
he said.
"I've been bothered by a cold and
while it won't bother me particularly
I think that those boys are a little
too fast for me. If I run 6:39, I'll
be satisfied."
Ken Doherty had slightly different
Th Wolverine coach thinks
that Schwarzkopf can run 6:37,
which is under the existing
world record. But like the Mich-
igan captain he thinks Fensk
will win in 6:34.7.
We questioned him about Maki
in the three-mile against Greg Rice
and Ddn Lash. He was skeptical
about the Finn's chances. "It'll be a
miracle if he wins in the condition
he's in now. Of course, it can hap-
pen. Illinois beat Michigan in foot-
ball. (So they did). And Maki can
beat Rice. But I doubt it."
C ORNERSTONES: Eleven swim-
mers will stay all week in New
York City, preparing for the AAU's
to be held there next weekend..
Matt Mann figures'that if they came
back here and then returned to the
metropolis they'd consume the whole
week travelling anyhow . . . So they
might just as well stay there and
train . . . We're waiting for blasts
on Michigan's entering the meet af-
ter it stayed away from last year's
at Columbus . . . Backstroker Bill
Beebe will return to Ann Arbor right
after the Collegiates by train and
then fly back to New York for the
second meet-"if I can scrape up the
money," he says . . . Big George Os-
troot, when not putting the shot
down at the Field House, regales
onlookers by carrying two men on
his back ala a horse . .. The power-
house then runs around the track
with the pair still sitting on top of
him . . He's a healthy prospect
in the discus outdoors . . . Healthy
is the word.
Par Shattered
In Golf Meet
Metz, Giildahl, Mangrum,
Card 64's At Asheville
ASHEVILLE, N.C., March 29.-P)
-The par 70 shooters were strictly
out of the running today as the coun-
try's touring golf pros took the Ashe-
ville Country Club course apart and
neglected to put it together again in
the first round of the $5,000 "Land of
The Sky" open tournament.
What they did put together, how-

ever, were some of the lowest scores
of the winter tour. When Dick Metz
came in with a six-under-par 64 for a
new competitive course record, it
looked pretty good, but before the
afternoon was over, both score and
record had been equalled in turn by
Ralph Guldahl and Lloyd Mangrum.
This amazing exhibition of jar
busting took the play away from Ij2n
Hogan for the first time since his
opening round in the North-South
Championship at Pinehurst.

free style title in a blanket finish,
beating out Frank Scofield of Army
and Charley Barker of Michigan, the
1939 champion, and setting a new
pool mark while he was about it.
The Wayne star's time of 23.1 sec-
onds was one-tenth second better
tlian the previous standard held
jointly by Charley Hutter of Har-
vard, Ken Walter of Iowa and Bar-
ker. Earlier today, in winning his
way to the final, Lumsden equalled
the tank record.
And as though inspired by his,
teammate's spectacular performance,
Andy Clark, National AAU Medley
Champ, came up from nowhere to
snatch a second place in the 220-
yard free style won by Howard John-
son, Yale's sensational sophomore.
Johnson, finishing in 2:13.1, was two
feet in front of Clark.
Charley Colwell of Army, eastern
50-yard champ, was forced to with-
draw tonight, after qualifying this
afternoon, due to a temperature.
The team fight between Michigan
and Yale promises to go right down
to the 400-yard relay tomorrow night,
the final event. Other team scores
were: Princeton, 14; Wayne, 13;
Army, and Southern California, 4
each; Howard, 3; North Central and
Kenyon, 2 each; Brown and Frank-
un and Marshall, one each.

To Mat Semi-Finals At Illinois

NEW YORK, March 29.-(IP)-Joef
Louis retained his world's heavy-
weight championship tonight by flat-
tening Johnny Paychek of Des Moiner
in two rounds before a crowd of about
11,000 fans. Louis weighed 200%/,
Paychek 187%.
After flooring the challenger three
times in the first round, Louis
smashed a vicious right hand flush to
the chin and a few seconds after the
bell rang for the second heat. Pay-
chek was liftedhclear off his feet and
landed flat on his back-out cold.
Referee Donovan waved to Johnny's
handlers to come in and get him and
the fight was over in 44 seconds of the'
From the start, it was strictly no
contest. Paychek backed away from
the opening bell, pawing forward with
his left hand. Louis stalked him,
caught up with him and dropped him
with a right hand in mid-ring. Up
at nine, Paychek went down again
before he could draw a deep breath-
thi stime from a left-right combina-
tion in Louis' own corner. Once
more up at nine, he threw a futile
right at the champion's head, took a
crackling right to the chin and was
down again. The bell rang just as he
got up at nine.
Blow By Blow
Round One:
Louis stabbed two light lefts to the
mouth as Paychek circled aroumd
boxing. Louis again found the range
with a straight left as Paychek con-
tinued to back away and box. The
crowd laughed as Louis continued to
follow Paychek around. Suddenly
Joe leaped in with a short right to
the face, fired a straight left and
right, and Paychek went down for the
count of nine. Louis leaped in and
hammered Paychek mercilessly with
both hands. Paychek landed a short
right to the cheek and left to the
body. Louis floored Johnny for a
nine dbunt with a left hook. Pay-
chek went down again from a right
for nine more.
Round Two:
Paychek was boxing better as Louis
stalked him firing straight lefts.
Louis landed a long left to the cheek.
Louis smashed a long vicious right
flush to the chin and Paychek was
lifted clear off his feet and landed
flat on his back out cold with Louis
a knockout winner in 44 seconds of
the second round.
Louis drawled in his dressing room
afterward, "Ah dunno if ah even
have to take a shewer. Ah'll get

"Mah easiest fight? Well, Ah'm

Intercollegiate Billiards
Title Won By Michigan
Michigan reigns supreme in the
college billiards world by virtue of
a decisive victory in the straight rail
intercollegiate championship match-
es which the Wolverines won with
a total of 425 against the 375 points
for Wisconsin. This makes it a clean
sweep for the Michigan team which
has already taken the pocket and
three-rail titles.
Representing the Wolverines were
Ralph Holmes, who was runner-up
in the country with 106 points in
the straight rail matches, Tom Slat-
tery, Eric Erickson, Bob Eddy and
Maurice Popkins.

heavyweight, was upset by George
Downes of Ohio State and Earl Van
Bebber, 175-pounder, lost to Leon
Breynard of Kansas State, the title
favorite in this division. The third
Aggie grappler to fall out was Vernon
Nell, 145-pounder who drew a bye
into the quarter finals. He was with-
drawn tonight without competing.
Mel Bruno, 145 pound wrestler from
San Jose (Calif.) State College, suf-
fered a broken arm in his bout with
Gene Farrell of Iowa State and was

The Grip
Your only means of sensing what
the club head is doing throughout
the swing is through the hands. The
Vardon overlapping grip is used by
95% of all good golfers. This grip
is mainly a finger grip. The shaft is
held diagonally from under the heel
of the left hand, across the palm,
to the second joint of the forefinger.
With the left arm hanging straight
down from the shoulder and fingers
extending toward the floor, grasp
the shaft as described above so that
you view a portionof the hand and
are able to see only the three large

This is very important because
the main swinging action of the
golf club is through the left arm and
not by the right as is done by many
inexperienced players. The other
fingers simply get the feel of the

in the right hand is between the
thumb and forefinger and the other
