Rochester's Zone Defense
Stops Wolverines, Who
Battle OSUSaturday
By CHRIS VIZAS
Regardless of what they do in the
Big Ten title race every year, Michi-
gan's basketball squad always man-
ages to upset the pre-season dope
bucket by putting on a first class
show on their Eastern swing after
being selected by the experts to be
easy pickings for its opponents.
Notre Dame: Eddie Riska of Irish
fame put on a one man show as he
sank 23 points against the Wolver-
ines, but it wasn't enough to check
Michigan as it edged out a 41 to 39
triumph. Capt. Jim Rae turned in
a great performance from the pivot
spot :with his passing and shooting,
but Charlie Pink took scoring hon-
ors with 11 points.
Connecticut: Michigan got off to
a slow start and was trailing 23 to
22 at half time, but they picked up
steam in the last half and walked
away 62-45. Captain Rae was bottled
up in the first frame as he scored
four points, but he broke loose in the
last half and added 16 points to take
high point honors.
Tulane: Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
used all of the 12 men he took on the
trip against the Green Wave as his
squad turned in a 63 to 22 triumph.
Only two men failed to take part in
the scoring as Michigan scattered its
points fairly evenly among its players.
Cornell: Michigan hit the victory
trail again as it nosed out a strong
Red quintet 29-24 at Columbus, Ohio.
Charlie Pink collected nine points to
lead the scoring parade.
Pittsburgh: Michigan opened the
New Year in auspicious fashion as
it toppled the Panthers 44-35 in an
overtime contest.

Good Enough

IN T HIS CORNER
By MEL FINEBERG
Football Stands Indicted .
Intercollegiate football stands indicted.
As 1940 leaves the post, football in general, and the Big Ten in particu-
lar, finds itself with a terrific hangover. The Mickey Finn that provided
the last drop was Chicago's new year's resolution to remain honest. And
according to one of its spokesmen, the way to start was to withdraw from
intercollegiate football.
As we see it, it mnaters little whether or not the Maroons withdraw
from the Big Ten in the rest of the sports, or whether or not Michigan
can find a suitable oppnent by the time next fall comes around, or
whether Michigan State or Notre Dame or Pittsburgh or Nebraska will
come in if Chicago withdraws completely. These are minor, short-run
difficulties. But look at the situation in its true perspective.
Chicago is one of the nation's highest ranking institutions of higher
learning. Its scholastic reknown is country-wide and it certainly must be
ranked well up n the top five. But now Chicago, one of the charter mem-
bers of the Big Ten, the Chicago that saw Walter Eckersall, Wally Steffan
Shorty Des Jardien, Fritz Crisler, Jay Berwanger, prance proudly on Staff
Tield, decides that education and intercollegiate football are incompatible in
a university.
Certainly if the Chicago assumption is true then this demands more
than a cursory appraisal and an even more curt dismissal. The Midway
administration didn't leap to this conclusion without much consideration
President Robert Hutchins gave repeated warnings and was just as repeat-
edly laughed at for his proposals. And recall another university president
(whose name escapes us for a moment) who said in an annual report i1,
effect that football must, either be given back to the students and instructorr
who use the game for educational purposes or suffer abolition before it
lontaminates other sports with its evils. Oh yes, we recall who that presi-
ient was. 1t was Alexander G. Ruthven of Michigan, in his report of
Marchwa4, 1939.
President Ruthven, in that report, went on to say that "to a ridicu-
lous extent football has degenerated in American colleges from an in-
teresting game for young people into an extravagant spectacle, from
a, means of inculcating ideas of team play and good sportsmanship
into an absurdly competitive sport about which tend to spring up all
the evils of professional competition among those whose sole desire is
to win.
"If football cannot be given back to the students and instructors whe
,zse the game for educational purposes, it had better be abolished-before it
┬░ontaminates other sports which up to the present have not developed the
evils so apparent in football."
Of course, nothing was done about the situation here. The statement
died a natural death and probably not because "football was given back
'o the students and instructors." Chicago chose to do something-and
,cccrding to one of its trustees, the one thing it could do and remain honest
was to withdraw from intercollegiate football.
Certainly this calls for some sort of answer from Big Ten officials.
Wanted: 128 pounds of healthy, eligible manhood to engage in that
form of athletic endeavor known in the western world as wrestling. Ex-
perience is desirable but unnecessary. Those interested report immedi-
ately to me at the Field House.
Cliff Keen, Wrestling Coach.
Now here's a chance for some cocky little bantam who always wanted
to compete in athletic activity here but never could because of a weight
deficiency. Injuries and ineligibilities have completely stripped Keen of any
contenders for the varsity 128 pound post. Possibly, before the year is over
some one mght be well on his way to world-wide fame. And if he gained
-bout 80 pounds he might be another Ed Don George. After all, it's a small
world.

By DON WIUTCHAFTER
The noted explorer Ponce de Leon
settled back in his grave yesterday
and chuckled a bit, for Michigan's
traveling swimming squad returned
from the Fort Lauderdale, Florida,
Forum and there was still no Foun-
tain of Youth discovered in the
Southland.
The Wolverines looked for foun-
tains to be sure, but the only ones
They found were the water foun-
tains in the Hotel Amphitrite, the
r:ebuilt luxury ocean liner that swim-
mers used as their headquarters.
Michigan Leads West
As far as other waters were con-
cerned, however, Matt Mann's forces
had a highly successful tour, for in
the 50-meter Florida pool it was the
Wolverines that once agai led the
way to a West triumph in the annual
east-West relays.
It was the Michigan all-around
power and super condition that shone
.hroughout the Christmas week For-
am. The Wolverines figured in the
:ecord breaking. They swept the
'irst three places in two different
'aces. They flashed brilliance in ev-
1ry event. In short, Matt Mann's
,harges did everything in Florida
his year except change the water
.n the Fort Lauderdale pool and
hat was done for them.
In the record'smashing, Ed Hut-
,hens, Gus Sharemet and Jim Welsh
eamed up with Lynn Surles of North-
vestern to better the pool mark in
the 200-meter free style relays.
Sharemet Wins Breast Stroke
In the individual events, John
Sharemnet, John Haigh and Tommy
Williamscame in first, second and
third in the 100-meter breast stroke
race while brother Gus, Welsh and
Dobson Burton pulled the same trick
in the century free style.
Besides these, Bill Holmes, Bill
Beebe and Strother "T-Bone" Martin
drew the attention of the vast crew
of college and high' school coaches
that took part in the Forum.
As Matt Mann put it, "My boys
were just red hot last week while the
rest of the swimmers weren't even in
condition yet."
Buckeyes Lack Condition
And included among those squads

i

I I

that were far from top shape in
Florida was the powerful Ohio State
forces that the Wolverines bump
into at Columbus on Jan. 13.
Even with their seven champions,
the Buckeyes didn't get in on much
of the show stealing at the Forum.
To be sure, Al Patnik and Earl Clark
the Cardinal diving twins, led the
field in their event. The Buckeye
duo is tops in any condtiion these
days and in any competition too.
But as far as the rest of the Ohio
State mermen are concerned, not
much can be said. Olympian Johnny
Higgins wound up fourth behind the
Michigan breast stroking trio in the
100. Harold "Curly" Stanhope swam
some back stroke but didn't work

iuco nio uiiher speciaiy, tne dis-
tance event. Ohio Coach Mike Peppe,
however, did uncover a sophomore
free styling star named Johnny Pat-
ten, which was all very confusing
since Matt Mann took a freshman
down by the same name.
"Ohio was out of condition," Matt
concluded, "but Purdue looked plenty
good. They'll be all right this year
in the Big Tens."
Who'll Be Lions' Coach?
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3.-(PI)-
George A. Richards could not be
reached tonight to say whether he
had fired Elmer Henderson and
hired "Hunk" Anderson to coach the
Detroit Lions.
