noise pressing defense hurried them.
Hapac's 17 point total for the eve-
ning ran his current total in the Big
Ten race up to 125 points. This gives
him an average of 13.8 for the nine
games the Illini have played so'far,
however he is actually averaging
15.62 including tonight's contest.
This 15.62 average is for the eight
games he has participated in since
he missed one of the first games of
the season due to illness. If he con-
tinues his present pace in the re-
maining three contests "Wild" Bill.
will better the scoring average per
game established by Purdue's Jewell
Young in 1938, which was 15.3 points
per game.
Illinois fans are hoping that Hapac
-an also break the all-time scoring
record of 184 points that Young also
established in 1938, and they are
giving even odds around Champaign
that he will do it. However, he must
connect for at least 19 pbints in each
of the next three battles the Illini
play.
Hapac's spporters think he can do
it, and point to the new individual
scoring record for one game that he
established against Minnesota when
he hit the hoops for 34 points.
Tonight's victory was the sixth{
Conference win against three losses
for the Illini quintet, while it marked
the Wolverine's fifth loss against four
triumphs.]
Immediately after the game, Ben-

r

of the Naval Academy's outstanding
athletes, captain of the 1939 football
team and a four letter man this year.
Jordan went right to work on Berg-
ner with a takedown in the first few
moments and from that point on the
match slowed down. Both men, ex-
cellent wrestlers, seemed wary of
each other and the only real action
occurred in the last four minutes.
The scoreboard recorded six points
for the Wolverine captain to Berg-
ner's three at the final horn.
Veteran 175 pounder Don Nichols
made his exit in an impressive man-
ner as he rolled up 23 points in his
match with George Weems of the
Annapolis team. Nichols won hand-
ily by a score of 23 to 5 and domin-
ated the fracas. He registered no
less than four near-falls on his agile
opponent but couldn't quite pin the
Navy man.
The Middie had built up an early
lead, after their initial defeat in the
121 pound match, which was to be
overcome by the Wolverines. Tom
Weidig scored a decision over John
Landreth to give Michigan the open-
ing victory. The encounter was close
and went into overtimes, Weidig fin-
ally winning 10 to 9. The diminutive
Michigan grappler used a chicken
wing to good advantage early in the
match and from that point on the
advantage see-sawed back and forth.
For the last, thirty seconds Weidig
held a leg hold on Landreth to pre-
serVe his one point lead and to in-
sure his win over the Middie.
The Navy opened up in the next
two matches and scored two succes-
sive falls. Roger Smith, Navy, pinned
Dick French at 5:07 with a half-nel-
son and stopper in the 128 pound
division. Jake Heimark, 136 pounder
and football manager, went on to pin
Mich igan's Carl Mosser at 6:50. This
match was filled with .action, although
the Navy boy dominated most of it.
Mosser, a reserve from last year and
filling in Jack Sergeant's spot, was
lifted into the air in typical pro
fashion at one point and later pinned
with a half-nelson and stopper.
Sophomore Jim Galles kept his sen-
sational first-year record clean as
varsity 165 pounder and registered his
sixth straight victory. Galles used a
stretcher scissors to good advantage
after a rather even match with Rich-
ard King,; Naval Academy grappler,
and pinned his opponent at 7:05 with
a half-nelson and a body press.

The Roads Part...
We walked into our nine o'clock
class yesterday morning (on
time) and noticed in the first col-
umn on the first page of The Daily.'
that Pres. Alexander G. Ruthven had
decried educational rivalry that
manifested itself in such ways as
'fiercely and dishonestly" striving
for populartiy by stressing "--the
prowess of athletic teams" and other
objectives which are only incidental
to their major purposes.
The President went on to say
'that universities (he mentioned
no names), among other things,
hire athletes secretly, promote
post-season games as a business
or g1ambling racket, and juggle
entrance requirements.
We thought back to, a story, again
in the first column of the first page,
cn February 16. Mr. Herbert 0. Cris-
ler had written an article (three
double column pages, 210 lines, ap-
proximately 1100 words, to be exact)
in The Quarterly Review of The
Michigan Alumnus on "Athletics In
Education". Therein he had said that
he "ventures to conclude that out
of some thousand colleges and uni-
versities in our country there are
not more than a dozen where ath-
letics have been over-emphasized to
the detriment of amateur sport and
of education in general."
All of which brings us to the
same conclusion that an Eng-
lish professor reached yesterday
morning when he said "maybe
the President and the football
coach ought to get together on
these things."
The A. A. U. track meet, to be held
here on March 23, will find the Field
House looking different than any of
the last three college generations
has seen it. For this meet, the sprints
and the hurdles will be run down
the center of the building while the
distance events will be run on the
track. ,
The events will be alternated,
thus speeding up the program.
Although the traditional picture
of the Field house shows the
track in this gise, the last time
that such an event was held in
that manner was on March 24,
1929, when Michigan whipped
Cornell, 59-36.
The talent for the meet has al-
ready begun to pour in. It is likely
that the two-mile event will see
Ralph Schwarzkopf, Taisto Maki,
Finnish world record-holder, Don
Lash, American record-holder, and
Tommy Quinn of Ypsi. In the sprints
there'll be Wilbur Greer of Michigan
State, Sammy Stoller, and Allan Tol-
mich.
Other entrants won't be known
until much later.

NEW YORK, Feb. 24.-(,?)-Chuck
Fenske made his sixth straight win-
ning effort the occasion for his first
National AAU championship tonightl
by turning in a 4:08.8 mile perform-
ance before a crowd of 15,000 at
Madison Square Garden.
But the Wisconsin Star, now offi-
cial king of the milers, had to share
the plaudits with little Greg Rice of
South Bend, Ind. The former Notre
Dame captain made a runaway of
the three-mile race with the fastest
time ever run indoors, 13:55.9.
Fenske, in his triumph, was aided
at least to some extent by an acci-
dent to the man 'he 'replaces at the
head of the mile-running parade.
Coming down the straightaway to go
into the bell lap, Glenn Cunningham
was giving Fenske a great battle for
the lead and appeared to be back in
something like his old-time form.
At that point the great Kansan
stumbled on the curb and took a full
somersault as Gene Venzke, in third
place at the moment, barely dodged
him.
Cunningham got up and finished
gamely to take fourth, place, but by
then the parade had passed him by
and Fenske came down the last
straightaway the winner by eight
yards over Venzke, with Lou Zam-
perini of Torrance, Calif., another
five yards back in third place. Archie

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 24.-)'
Canny Ben Hogan of White Plains,
N. Y., finished just before the rains
started today, then watched the rest
of the field struggle through the
showers in a vain effort to match
the 68-70-138 which gave him a
lead at the half-way mark in the
$10,000 New Orleans Open Golf
Tournament.
The only man close to Hogan was
Harold (Jug) McSpaden of Win-
chester, Mass., who played in the
same threesome and added a 69 to
yesterday's 70 for a 139.

three-quarters pace of, 3:08.4, dropped
out with two and a half laps to go.
Rice's performance in wiping off
the 15-year-old three mile mark of
13:55.2 held by Willie Ritola was
something that had to be seen to be
believed. Leader from the start, the
"Toy Bulldog" commanded a 60 yard
advantage as the bell clanged for the
final 160 yards.
As if he were lust start: .g a race
instead of finishing one, the outdoor
5,000 meter champion cut loose with
a sprint and flew into the tape with
almost a lap margin over Walter Mehl
of Wisconsin. Don Lash, the Indiana
state cop who won at 5,000 meters in
1939, was a bad third.
