Lucky Mr. Schmidt ...
The Double awards a prize today.
Without hesitation, it names Fran-_
cis Schmidt as the luckiest guy of
the year 1940. Dear old "Shut the
Gates of Mercy," in the Double's
opinion, is even more fortunate
than the thug who was released from
Alcatraz just before the holiday sea-
Yep, lucky Francis got out of
Ohio State in time to spend Christ-
mas at home with the kiddies.
In second place in this annual
contest was Oscar Vitt, another fugi-
tive. The thug from Alcatraz ran a
Imagine ,the coach who felt bad
about losing a job at Ohio State?
They tell me that Earl Martineau
and Clarence Munn have been men-
tioned as possible successors to
Schmidt. Contacted last night, both
Marty and Biggie said that they had
heard nothing of any offers from the
land where the mud runs deep. Which
is only natural. It's the same as if
President Roosevelt were offered the
job of running Bessarabia.
Frankly, the Double thinks that
Ohio State had better concentrate
on signing Massilon High's Paul
Brown in a hurry. No man with
college training would ever con-
sider accepting the job.
A Minneapolis department store
has placed Joe Mernik's right foot-
ball shoe on display . . . Among his
many offers, Tom Harmon got one
from ^a Sheridan, Wyo. radio sta-
tion . . . They offered the Hoosier
Hammer a job after he graduates ...
Nope, they didn't offer $25,000 per
... or ever $5,000 .. . Little difference
that makes when Sheridan is only
40 miles away from Buffalo, Wyo.,
the home of a certain campus coed
whose name my readers forbid me to
mention again . .
Harmon, Frutig, and Evashevski
are somewhere in Nebraska on their
way to San Francisco today while
Ralph Fritz leaves for Montgomery,
Ala., and the North-South game
tomorrow ... John Mariucci, form-
Minnesota hockey and gridiron
badman, broke into professional
hockey with the Blackhawks the
other day . . . The injury-riddled
Chicago squad called himup from
Providence to fill out the team .
They say that big "Maroosh" has
changed and might make good in
the big leagues . . . He isn't as
rough ... He's working on the tech-
nique, the finer points and aban-
doning the "knock 'em dead stuff."

basketball team upset the touring Un-

but went down when Wisconsin made
good on 20 out of 28 foul shots.
Keogan will have four regular
members of the team nosed out by
the Varsity, 41-39, last season, in
the quintet that takes the floor
against Michigan tonight.
Leading the Ramblers is- Capt.
Eddie Riska, the team's high scorer
who tossed in 23 points against the
Wolverines last season. George So-,
bek, big six-footer, teams up with
Riska in the forecourts.
The Irish also have a veteran
guard combination in Larry Ryan
and Bob Smith, while Cy Singer, six-
foot-two-inch sophomore who jumps
center, is the only newcomer on the
Notre Dame team.

An Opett Letter to Citizens of
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida:
Tomorrow the greatest collection
of swimmers. ever gathered on one
team leaves cold Ann Arbor for your
fair city. Yes, Michigan's great gang
is coming down south for a bit of
But this year we really have a
team! You remember the bunch that
came down last Christmas, don't you?
Well, they went on to win the Big
Ten, National Collegiate and AAU
titles during the '39-'40 season.
We only lost three men from that
crew-namely our captain and diver
Hal Benham, Johnny Haigh and Ed
Hutchens. To replace those stars,
however, Matt Mann has the swim-
min'est bunch of sophomores you ever
laid eyes on.
Keep your blinkers peeled for Jack
Patten, Jim Skinner, Bob West, Ted
Horlenko, Bruce Allen, Will Garvey
and Claire Morse; they're all coming
down. Skinner is already a national
champ in the breast stroke and this
boy Patten is nothing short of sen-
We've got veterans back at Michi-
gan, too. Surely you recall Gus Shar-
emet, national 100 yard champ, and
his kid brother John. They're making
the trip along with our newly married
trio of Francis Heydt, Blake Thax-
ter and Bill Holmes-all honey-
Captain Bill Beebe, Charley Barker
and Dobson Burton will be your
guests for a couple of weeks too.
Watch Matt's freshmen - they're
really good; Louis Kivi, Dan Felski
and Lou Haughey in particular.
Distance man Jim Welsh and diver
T-Bone Martin are also scheduled to
be in one of the nine carloads of
Wolverine champions that Mann is
leading to the land of sunshine.
Here's hoping you get down to Mu-
nicipal Pool for a glance at the Maize
and, Blue. Matt Mann claims they're
his best gang yet.
Yours for a joyous Christmas,
DETROIT, Dec.; 18-(A')--Barred
from trading by an American League
rule, the championship Detroit Tig-
ers nevertheless completed another
player transaction today.
President Walter 0. Briggs an-
nounced the club had acquired the
services of Eric McNair, 30 year old
infielder, from the Chicago White
Sox at the waiver price of $'7,500.
McNair, a right-handed batsman,.
has played with tihe Philadelphia,
Boston and Chicago Cubs since en-
tering the American League late in
the 1929 season. He has played sec-
ond base, shortstop and third base.
The Detroit club indicated MeNair
would serve as a utility infielder. De-
troit's regular infield-composed of
Rudy York at first base, Charley
Gehringer at second, Dick Bartell
at shortstop and Pinky Higgins at
third-is the oldest in the major
McNair batted .227 for the White
Sox in 66 games last season. He had
his best season in the majors in 1939

over his opponent by an 8-5 decision,
to become king of the 130 pounders.
Next bout saw Ed Wight pinning Bob
Begle in 1:30.5 for the 135 pound
In the heavier divisions, Melvin
Becker and Harold Langstaff put on
the show of the day as they see-
sawed back and forth in an evenly
matched bout. Becker ended up with
a 16 to 13 decision over Langstaff.,
George McIntyre lost the 155 pound
crown to Milan Cobble on a decision
of 27 to 6. Jim Davantz lost on a
fall to Jack O'Connor in 5:10. John

12 to 8 decision.
the starting array that led the Wol-
verines to victory in their first two
games. Sofiak and Fitzgerald, the
team's leading scorers, will fill the
forward posts, sophomore Jim Mand-
ler will be at center, and Brogan and
Ruehle will occupy the guard posi-
Herrmann, Cartmill and Grissen
will form the first line of reserve
strength on whom the Varsity men-
tor will call to spell his regulars.
Following the Butler game, the
Wolverine cagers will have a few
days off to go home, but will return
to Ann Arbor for a practice session,
Christmas afternoon. The squad
xill leave for Columbus, Friday, Dec.

nual four team invitation tourna-

Discovery of an error in the
compilation of the, fraternity
wrestling results yesterday dis-
closed that Hermitage was the
undisputed winner of the cham-
pionship, and not tied with Phi
Gamma Delta as reported. ,
John Nies, of Theta Xi, won
the 165-pound title by default
over Glenn Ireland, of Phi Gam-
ma Delta. Ireland was reported
the winner in yesterday's Daily
'This change makes the Phi
Gam final point total 11 instead
of 13, and puts them in second
place. Theta Ai's total is seven
points instead of five, giving
them seventh place in the meet.
