Diary of a between-the-semesters
Pepys: Down to the Golden Gloves
finals at the Armory on Wednesday
night where the local lads throw
gloves with reckless abandon and an
amazing lack of direction. The fights
made up in color what they lacked
in finesse. The fighters were ready,
willing if not able.
But color of a different sore
threw its pall on the meeting. We1
can't speak for other meetingsl
but we understand they were just
the same. It seemed that the only
way a colored lad could win a de-
cision would be to fight another
colored man. Anything that was
nearly doubtful went in one direc-
tion. It was a sorry example of
discrimination.
There were a host of University1
students brushing up on their geom-,
etry inside the squared circle. The
best of these was Tom Flake who won
the novice light heavyweight title by
scoring three knockouts in three,
fights, two of them in the first round,
and the other in the second. John;
Rieger, another freshman, took the
lightweight title while Clarence Hall,
a frosh gridder, was the heavyweight
titlist. Leon Coquillette lost in the
finals of the middleweight division;
while Glenn Brooks, Frank Butters,;
Tom Connolly and Harry Wickers alsol
fought.
Down to Bufalo, N.Y. with the+
swimming team to watch them I
shelback Ben Grady's Pittsburgh
team, a good outfit in its own
league but highly outclassed by
Michigan's National CollegiateI
champions. The Wolverines, with-
out Matt Mann who missed his
first meet in 16 years because of
illness, put on a good show for
the assembled alumni. While
iT-Bone Martin and Hal Benham
were giving an exihibition off thel
high board, the whole Michigan
rew booed and sent Bill Holmes
up, acclaiming him as "a reall
diver." Holmes fell in three times,l
once intentionally.l
The swimmers find speed a habit.
Recordings of Michigan songs were1
plIyed and the natators finished7
about three bars ahead of the music.
On the way back we discovered that
Gus Sharemet used to be a shot put-]
ter. He gave it up (he says) because
when he started to swim he found
that his right arm was so much
stronger that he'd swim around in
concentric circles.
No matter how much we drive
through tCanada we're always
amaazed at the way the kids skate
along the highways, nursing a
puck with a hockey stick. Thej
stick grows there, like the exten-
sion of the forearm.
Back to Ann Arbor to discover that
Walt Peckinpaugh is in Florida,
training with the Cleveland Indians,
that.Don Lash may come to the state
A.A.U. track meet here next month,
that Wilber Greer, Allan Tolmich
are among those who will compete,
that Bill Watson is back in school but
is no longer eligible for a spring
sport.
Back to school.
Byron Nelson Wins
Texas Golf Tourney
SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Feb. 12.-
(P)-National Open champion Byron
Nelson shot his first round of golf
out of tlie 60's in two years of the
Texas Open, but his flat 70 was good'
enough to beat out Ben Hogan 'of
White Plains, N.Y., by a stroke in the
1940 title play off at Brackenridge
Park today.

They just didn't have the touch .
that had wound them up in a tie at
the end of the regular 72-hole play;
at 271,13 strokes under par

the 5,500 fans to their feet as he in-
tercepted a Michigan pass and drib-
bled the entire length of the floor to
get another field, goal.
With less than four minutes re-,
maining, Ruehle connected for the
Wolverines and Bob Menke tallied
from the field for Indiana. Sofiak
was good for another field goal and
Pink added two points to the Wol-
verine total from the foul line.
Dorsey made the final goal for In-
diana and Stephenson counted from
the charity mark. Then Rae got his
only two-pointer with seconds left
to play.
Indiana hit 25 of 78 tries from, the
field and exactly half of its 14 foul
chances. Michigan could connect
with only 10 to 72 field goal attempts
and 10 to 19 charity tosses.

Triangular Track Meet To Be Held Ton igh

Pitt Swamped
By Wolverine
Natators,54-21
A 16-year Wolverine tradition
along with five Niagara Association
swimming records went by the way-
side last Saturday night as Michi-
gan's high powered natators defeat-
ed Pittsburgh, 54-21 in the Buffalo
Athletic Club tank.
The Panther spanking marked the
first time in 16 years that a Michi-
gan swimming team took part in a
meet minus the presence of Matt
Mann, for illness forced the Wol-'
verine mentor to remain in Ann Ar-
bor while his squad journeyed to
Buffalo for the killing.
Led by assistant coach Harvey
Muller, the Wolverines won eight of
the nine events and stampeded over
five of the existing district records in
their fourth straight dual meet vic-
tory.
Wolverines Crack Medley Mark
From the first event in which Dick
Reidl and the two Sharemnets, John
and Gus, cracked the 300-yard med-
ley relay mark with a 3:03.8 timing
to the final free style relay, it was
only a matter of how big a score the
Michigan squad was going to roll up.
Other new district records were
Charley Barker's 24.6 for the 50-
yard free style, John Sharemet's 2:38
for the 200-yardbreast stroke, John
Gillis' :55.3 century free style time,
and Reidl's 1:41 flat for the 150-
yard back stroke event.
Final Grades Change Lineup
The Michigan squad returned to
Ann Arbor Sunday to find that there
would be three changes in the lineup
that would face the undefeated Iowa
mermen Saturday night as the Wol-
verines make their first competitive
appearance of the year in the home
waters.
Francis Heydt, the Western Con-
ference back-stroke champion in
1938 who transfered from Iowa last
year, became eligible to compete for
the Matt Mann forces along with
Strother "T-Bone" Martin, the soph-
omore diver. Lost to the team, how-
ever, through the ineligibility route
was Dobson Burton, Matt's pocket
battleship and capable sophomore
free-styler.

will round out a fine trio of jumpers.
Warren Breidenbach, Michigan's
Big Ten 440 champion, will take a
healthy crack at the meet revord of
51.1 seconds. Breidenbach has been
running better than ever this year,
and hopes to add this record to a list
which includes the all-time Michigan
and Ferry Field marks outdoors.
The mile run brings together a
large group of the state's best dis-
tance men including Michigan's Ed
Barrett, Karl Wisner, and Jack Dob-
son, State's Capt. Roy Fehr, and Nor-
mal's Joe Brzezinski, though the lat-
ter was hurt last week and may not
compete. In his first year of run-
ning, Barrett placed third in the
Conference, and has been improving
steadily. Wisner is rounding into
shape again and is displaying the
form that made the coaches expect
so much of him when he was a fresh-
man. Dobson, whose -showing in prac-
tice would make him a favorite
against any other competition might
come out in front.
After being over-shadowed for two
years by Elmer Gedeon, Stan Kel-
ley takes over as number-one hurd-
ler of the region only to find his posi-
tion threatened by teammate Jef
Hall and Normal's sensational sopho-
more, Whitey Hlad, who set a new
record for the highs against Mar-
quette last Saturday.
Doherty will present to track so-
ciety five of his sophomores, Bill
Ackerman, who is being groomed to
take over Schwarzkopf's place, will
make his first start tonight against
one of the toughest fields anyone
could take on in collegiate circles;
Charley Decker and John McMaster,
of whom much is expected before
the season is over, will be making
their bows in the pole vault; Johnny
Kautz will compete in half-mile; and
Ray Gaulthier will display the form
that made him the top hurdler of
the yearlings last year.
Students will be admitted on pre-
sentation of identification cards.

By Graduaion
Michigan's floundering hockey
tem lost its ninth game of the sea-
son Saturday night- at the Coliseum
when a fast-skating team from Sar-
nia, Ont., capitalized on its superior
speed to chalk up a 4-2 victory.
But the game was more than an
ordinary loss to the Lowreymen, for
it marked the final appearance of
defenseman Larry Calvert whose fine
play this season has sparked the
Michigan attack, Calvert was lost
through graduation, and his ab-
sence fronn the back line will be sore-
ly felt on the undermanned squad.
Together with Charley Ross, his
other partner on the defense, Cal-
vert has given the Wolverines much-
needed defensive strength as well as
treating the fans to the unusual
sight of a defenseman stealing the
offensive show.
