Officiating Disliked
The officiating was some of the1

Michigan's heartbreaking 16-14
loss to the Illinois matmen Satur-
day, which carried down with it a
record of 16 straight dual meet, vic-
tories, was thrust behind them yes-
terday as the grapplers began prep-
arations to repel the Northwestern in-
vasion this week.
Terming the defeat "unfortunate,"
Coach Cliff Keen turned philoso-
pher long enough to remark, "It was
only our third loss in four years. I
guess that's pretty nearly our share."
Behind, 16-0, going into the fifth
match, after Illinois had taken two
falls and two decisions in the first
four matches, Michigan started its
bid when Harland Danner pinned
Illini Ted Seabrooke. The bid stopped
there, however, when the Wolverines
failed to score another fall.
Sophomore Jim Galles was about to
turn the trick when the match was
stopped to rescue his opponent from
Galles' punishing head scissors. Don
Nichols came within an eighth of
an inch of succeeding when his match
ended. The defeat went down in the
records after Illinois heavyweight
Frank Battaglia did a clumsy, but
effective job of avoiding Captain
"Butch" Jordan for nine dull min-
The pressure of maintaining a win-
ning streak now gone, the grapplers
are working with the intention of
starting another this Saturday against
the Wildcats. Northwestern's lone
Conference start brought them a
crushing 28-6 defeat by a strong Iowa
squad, and they will be the under-
dogs against the Wolverines.

Capt. JiMmy Rae, Michigan's greatr
center, pictured here on the verge
of making one of his deadly shots,
played heady and Aggressive ball
last night in the rough and tumble
game with the fighting Illini to
lead the Wolverines in scoring with'
16 poiits.
Pucksters Tie


For Big 10 Lead,
Two Victories Over Illini
Do It; Gophers Next
By virtue of two decisive victories
over Vic Heyliger 6 Illinois lads, the
Michigan hockey team today finds it-
self in a tie for first place in the Big
Ten puck race. But: this week, the
Wolverines travel to Minneapolis to
meet the powerful Minnesota outfit
in a pair of contests which will see
the Gophers top-heavy favorites.
Greatly encouraged by the scoring
punch which the Wolverines dis-
played in the Illinois series, especially
the second game, which they won
5-1, Coach Eddie Lowrey is nursing
the hope that his boys Will give Min-
nesota a real contest and perhaps
even pull out a victory.-
One encouraging feature of the
second Illini tilt was the aggressive-
ness and general improvement of
lanky sophomore center Paul God-
smith who scored two, goals and ex-j
hibited more drive than he had in
the past.
Charley Ross and Larry Calvert,
the always dependable Michigan de-
fense men played their usual hard-
checking, fast-skating games and
Ross was again one of the offen-
sive spark plugs of the Wolverines,
assisting Goldsmith on both of his
scores and tallying once himself.
Capt. Eldon "$pike" James, Wol-
verine goalie, turned up with a num-
ber of sensational saves in the series
although he was not forced to extend
himself as much as he had in pre-
vious contests. If the Wolverines.
should' turn in an amazing upset and
defeat the Gophers, it will probably
be mostly the work of James, Cal-
vert and Ross.



Tankers Take


First. Places;
Reserves weak


That's Not Cricket . . .
Back in 1936, Ohio State had
an up-and-coming swimming team.
Howie Salie, an all-American back-1
stroker, Dexter Woodford, a fine dis-7
tance free styler and Jim Patterson,
future Big Ten champion in the,
dive, were the backbones of the team.
At that time Michigan was
Conference champion, had com-
petition only from Iowa (who
dethroned the Wolverines that
year but who had the tables re-
versed in the Collegiates) and
Northwestern. But Ohio State
was a comer and Matt Mann,
coach of the Wolverines, knew
that the Conference needed a
shot in the aquatic arm and de-
cided to schedule the Buckeyes
The Wolverines won a pair that
year but both were close. And the
following year Ohio really had a
team coming up. There was Al Pat-
nik, Johnny Higgins, Billy Quayle,
Ed Sabol, Bill Neunzig, Al McKee and
a couple of others.
Now swimming is a peculiar sport
in that everyone knows how good
freshmen are. They swim in A.A.U.
and other meets; in fact, many swim-
mers reach a peak in high school. In
short there was little doubt of how
tough Ohio State would be in 1937-
38. They'd be darn tough-too tough
for Michigan.
Matt knew that he'd be whipped
by that club. It"d be close but
swimming is such a form sport
that it's easy to predict scores.
But he scheduled two dual meets
again. "I'll get whipped this time
but 0 I'll get them again," he
Well, he was wallopped twice.
Good and proper. There was no
doubt about it. Ohio was too
good in dual meets and in the Big
Tens although Michigan man-
aged to eke out a lucky one point
victory in the National Colleg-
Last year Michigan again appeared
headed for a pair of defeats. Ohio
was again too strong but Neunzig
and Sabol left school and both peets
ended in 42-42 ties. In the Big Tens
and the Collegiates, it was all Michi-.
Enough for the past. This year, it
seemed as if the Wolverines would
win. When Billy Quayle was declared
ineligible, (Ohio authorities say it was
because of scholastic deficiency) Ohio
coach Mike Peppe suddenly found
that he had no place on his schedule
for the second Michigan meet. There
had been only tentative dates made
but now, out of the clear blue sky (as
gins had the time of his life trying
to shake loose from the fast pursu-
ing Michigan sophomore.
Another bright spot in the Wol-
verine picture was Beebe's victory
over Stanhope. In the past, the
Michigan back stroker always stayed
with the leaders during the early
part of the race, but faded in the
stretch. Saturday he did an about-
face. This time it was Stanhope who
dropped behind in the closing yards.
Four terms of eleven wees are given
each year. These may be taken con-
secutively (graduation in 3% years)
or three terms may be takean eachyear.
(graduation in 4,years). The entrane
requirements are intelligence, charac-
ter and three 'years of college

the saying goes), Mr. Peppe finds
that there aren't enough days of our
years. He cancels the second Wolver-
ine meet since he finds that none of
the three tentative dates are satis-
factory. His schedule is completely.
filled and the most attractive meet
of the year is blacked out.
We wouldn't haave believed it
but there is only one conclusion to
be drawn. Mike Peppe was afraid
to take another shellacking. Ex-
traneous reasons are merely ex-
cuses. It appears as though he
didn't want to be licked. So
he cancelled the meet.
This won't help Big Ten swim-
ming. If, any time a coach de-
cides he wants'to run away and
play only when he has a good
chance of winning, then the Fa-
bian swimming policy will dom-
inate the Conference. Swimming
will go classical and hearken back
to Roman days.
One way to change that is to have
Major Griffith's office do the sched-
uling. Take it out of the hands of
the coaches, allowing them only to
fill in the dates. Football, basketball,
baseball, all of them had the same
difficulty. Now, once and for all, let
the Big Ten office take over the
scheduling of swimming. Then, there
won't be a repetition of this cozy
The cancellation of the meet
had the Wolverines without a
really good home meet but the
problem was solved yesterday
afternoon. The juniors were tell-
ing the sophomores that confi-
dentially they you-know-what,
and sophomores were informing
the juniors that water was some-
thing you swim in, not drink.
So the sophs challenged the
juniors to a dual meet. But the
seniors, all three of them, didn't
want to be left out and then the
freshmen, as is their usual wont,
declared themselves in.
The outcome is a triangular meet.
The juniors on one club, the sophs on
another and the seniors and the frosh
combined on the third. The juniors
have Jim Welsh, Big Ten champ in
the 220, Charley Barker, Collegiate
sprint champ, Bill Beebe, runner-up
in the Collegiate backstroke and
others; the sophs have two Share-
mets, Dobson Burton, Tommy Wil-
liams, Strother Martin-and others,
while the three seniors, Capt. Hal
Benham, Ed Hutchens, Johnny
Haigh, will be supplemented by what
Matt calls "a frosh squad that could
beat just about any other varsity in
' the country."

They huffed and they puffed and
they blew the house of Peppe down
in Columbus Saturday afternoon, but
still the Wolverine natators' showing
was disappointing to the experts who
had predicted a 30 point advantage
for the Michigan squad.
They won the first places all right.
There is no kick coming about that
end of the meet. In fact, the experts
had predicted six victories for the
Wolverines and Bill Beebe's triumph
over Big Ten champion Harold (Cur-
ly) Stanhope even made it seven.
Ohio Cops Places
But the seconds and thirds didn't
seem to fall Michigan's way Satur-
day. Their expected sweep of the
free style events never materialized.
Don Reinicker, the Buckeye sopho-
more, finished second in both 50 and
100, while John Patton, another Ohio
newcomer, wound up second in the
two distance events.
As Matt Mann explained.it, "My
regulars looked swell, but the second
stringers let me down."
But then too, Mike Peppe's two
sophomores were plenty good. Pat-
ton was one of the smoothest swim-
mers in the water Saturday, while
Reinicker was forced to swim :23.7
in the 50 to beat Bill Holmes who
came back fast after a poor start, and
the Buckeye lad swam the century
in 54 seconds to hold off the fast
finishing Ed Hutchens.
Regulars Come Through
But Matt's "regulars did look
swell" Saturday. There is no doubt
about that. The brothers Sharemet
were especially brilliant. Gus' :52.6
for the century even forced Mike
Peppe to call him "the finest free
style prospect in a long time who will
undoubtedly develop into one of the
world's best."
Johnny lost, but in a convincing
manner. The veteran Johnny Hig-
