with the speed of a chased rabbit,
burst ahead of the pack 20 yards from
home and finished, strong in :23.6.
The century race was almost a
duplicate and Charley dethroned his
teammate Gus as champion in :53.1,
one tenth of a second off the inter-
collegiate mark and five tenths more
than the Conference mark.
Jack Patten turned on the heat in
both distance events with the result
that Welsh had to apply the pressure
and they both finished one-two in
the 220 and 440. Welsh's time for the
shorter race was 2:16.6, shading Pat-
ten's day-old mark of 2:18.9, made
in last night's prelims.
Jim Skinner Wins
The race the Iowa fans came to
see turned into a classic and another
Michigan victory, as Jim Skinner,
swimming the smartest and best
paced duel of his career, outlasted
Al Povilaitis, hitherto unbeaten
Hawkeye, in the sensational time of
2:29.2, over three seconds better than
the intercollegiate mark and a good
11 seconds faster than the Big Ten
Jim broke out into a short lead on
the first lap, they hit the 100-mark
together and then with the benefit
of the rest .he received while switch-
ing to the orthodox style, he powered
his way to a two-length victory.
There was a ripple of laughter as
the announcer droned the results of
the 150-yard backstrole, for Michi-
gan had swept to the first four places
with Fran Heydt catching Dick Reidl
on the last lap while Wolverine Capt.
Bill Beebe finished third ahead of
Ted Horlenko. Kurlak of Illinois fin-
ished fifth. The time of 1:41.6 tied
the Big Ten and national records.
Clark Tops Divers
Earl Clark succeeded his old part-
ner Al Patnik as Conference low
board king with a red hot demonstra-
tion that shaded Frank Dempsey, al-
so of Ohio State, and Don Kienlin,
Illinis, a surprise third. Jack Wolin
ran into one of his off nights and
was last in the field.
The only places on the program
that the Michigan marauders relin-
quished to the rest of the Conference
were in the diving and a few thirds
and fourths in the 220, the 50 and
the 100. Elchlepp of Minnesota came
through for a third in the 220 and
440 while Dick Fahrback of North-
western took third in the 50 and fifth
in the century.
Iowa got the bulk of its points in
the relays and the breast stroke with
a second and a fourth by Poulos.
Art Bethke of Chicago gave the
Maroons their only markers with a
third behind Skinner and Povilaitis.
The Wolverines will meet Michigan
State in a dual meet Monday night in
the #ports Building Pool, and will at-
tempt to set a new world's 600-yard
backstroke mark, Matt Mann re-
vealed after tonight's slaughter.

Bert Stodden Scores Both
Varsity Goals; Engages
In FightWith Bessone
A couple of lads named Norbert
Sterle and Amo Bessone, aided and
abetted by blond Bert Stodden, pro-
vided a good deal of excitement down
at the Coliseum last night before the
final gun had ended another Michi-
gan hockey defeat with Illinois' great
club on the long end of an 8-2 score.
Sterle, sophomore center for the
Illini, put on a one-man exhibition
of how hockey should be played, tally-
ing five goals and racking up two
assists to run his point total for the
season to 62, 15 more than the for-
mer National Collegiate scoring record
set by Vic Heyliger of Michigan in
1936-37. Heyliger is now the Illinois
Bessone Amazes Fans
Little Amo Bessone, rugged Illinois
defenseman, amazed the fans with
his speedy skating and vicious body
checks and, with two minutes to play,
he and Bert Stodden traded blows in
the best fight seen on the local ice
this season.
The battle was precipitated by
Stodden's stick coming in contact
with Bessone's cheek while Bert was
in the process of checking the fiery
Italian into the boards. Both boys
shook off their gloves and started
swinging and it took most of the
members of both teams, both coaches
and two officials to separate them.
They started again in the penalty
box so Bessone was sent to the dress-1
ing room inasmuch as the game was
almost over.t
Illini Strike Fast
The Illini wasted no time starting
things off with Joe Gannon scoring
on a pass from Owen after a minute
and 45 seconds of the first period.
They added two more before the.

Rogers Is Given,
Another Year
(special. to The Daly)
LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 8. -
Michigan's 1941 gridiron stock re-
ceived sound material support from
faculty representatives of the West-
ern Conference here today when the
group declared ,Joe Rogers, husky end
from Plymouth, eligible for another
year of collegiate competition.
The move was heartily welcomed
by head coach Herbert O. "Fritz"
Crisler who until now had Harlin
Fraumann, with a low draft number,
as his only returning veteran"
It was decided by representatives
that because of "limited competition"
Rogers along with Sam Foxe of Ohio
State, another end, should be al-
lowed to take part in next year's foot-
ball warfare.
Rogers played the final two min-
utes of the Northwestern-Michigan
game four years ago. He took part'
infix plays altogether, three of which
were incompleted forward passes.
Later in the same season, he en-
tered the Illinois encounter immedi-
ately before the final play.
During the following year, the
Plymouth youth dropped out of school
because of financial difficulties, but
he returned in 1939 to become a
regular on Crisler's last two Wolver-
ine squads.
The faculty representatives' action
today was similar to their decision
last fall when Helge Pukema, Minne-
sota guard, John Petty and Herman
Timperman, both of Purdue, were de-
clared eligible for another year ofI

Last night senior Jack Dobson,I
after running his regular half mile
event, came back to double as aI
member of the victorious mile-re-
lay quartet.

finished in fifth place, one point be-
hind the Hoosiers and Illini.
Three other Michigan grapplers
appeared in today's bouts besides
Galles. 'Art Paddy, 155-pounder, had
also reached the finals while Herb
Barnett, 136-poundr, and Bill Court-
right, an 165-pounder, were pitted in
consolation matches.
Art Paddy took second place to
win four points for Michigan. In his
clash against the Hoosiers' Angelo
Lazzara, former Big Ten champion,
Paddy couldn't get started as Lazza-
ra continued to pile up a margin to
win, 9-3.
Both Barnett and Courtright won
their consolation matches. Barnett
defeated Maurice Nemer of Minne-
sota to take third place in his divi-
sion. Courtright had an easy time
in his match defeating Schumacher
of Minnesota, 5-2. Bill lost a thriller
last night when he suddenly took ill.
He was practically out on his feet in
the latter minutes of his bout with
Berry of Illinois. Several minutes
were required to revive him after
that match, but he appeared in fine
shape in winning today.
Ben Wilson, Indiana 136-pounder,
and Dave Bartela, coach of the win-
ning Gopher team, received trophies
at the end of the final matches. Wil-
son, who barely nosed out -Michi-
gan:s Barnett last night, 6-4, after
Herb had piled up a margin in the
first five minutes, was awarded a gold
watch by Dr. Dan J. Whiteacre for
displaying the best sportsmanship
and skill in the two-day meet.

siers in that event, but aside from'
Ufer's performance in the quarter
and Charley Decker's tie for second
in the pole vault, the Wolverines just
weren't around when the big bundles
of points were handed out.
Two American indoor records were
smashed tonight, both coming in the
hurdle events. Blazing Bob Wright,
husky Ohio State sophomore flash,
pounded his way over the 70-yard
highs in :08.5 to clip a tenth of a
second off the old mark held jointly
by Dan Caldermere of Indiana, Bob
Osgood and Elmer Gedeon, former
Michigan barrier stars.
In the lows, Don Olsen of Illinois,
drove his way over the 70 yard course
in 07.9 to knock a tenth of a second
off the record that he and North-
western's Chuck Horvath set up here
last night.
George Franck, Minnesota's All-
American gridiron star sprang the

home ahead of- Northv4estern's red-
headed star, Myron Piker, defending
champion, in the 60 yard dash. Pik-
er pulled out in front at the gun, led
fog 50 yards, but pulled a muscle five
steps from the tape, and his desper-
ate lunge failed to match Franck's
closing burst of speed.
Other title winners tonight were
George Paskvan, another gridiron
star, from Wisconsin in the shot put
and teammate Bill Williams with a
13 foot 10/2 inch performance in thb
pole vault.
Don Olsen of Illinois cut in for a
share of the individual glory by whip-
ping over 70 yards of low hurdles-a
new event on the indoor program-in
the sparkling time of 7.9 seconds. The
time was three-tenths second better
