Wrestling Team Looks Good
Despite Loss To Michigan State

The Michigan hockey team will re-
surne its Post-examination schedule
on Saturday, February 15, when the
Wolverines take on the Paris (Ont.)
A.C. The Paris club plays in the In-
termediate Ontario Hockey Associa-
tion. Thegame will start at 8 p.m.
Coach Eddie Lowrey will be count-
ing on the addition of a new wing-
man for the Paris game in the person
of Bob Fife. Fife is a fast clever wing-
man who was a standout on lastI
year's freshman team. He was ren-'
dered hors de combat by a note from
the Dean's Office for the first semes-
ter, but he is expected to be ready
to go after finals.

Practices this week have not been
compulsory for the Varsity squad. Al
few of the boys have been down every
evening, however, to try out their
shooting eyes against Hank Loud, the
diminutive Wolverine goalie, and to
keep in good physical condition for
the games which will come thick
and fast after the examination per-
iod is over..
Brantford Here
There are no games scheduled for
the week immediately following the
Paris contest. But the following week,
Michigan takes on three of the tough-$
est opponents they will meet on the
home ice this season. On Tuesday,
Feb. 25, the Wolverines are billed to
meet the Brantford club of the Sen-
ior Ontario Hockey Association, one
of the strongest hockey leagues in
the world.
With that tilt out of the way, they1
step right into another tough oppon-
ent when Minnesota's Gophers in-
vade the Coliseum for a game Thurs-
day, Feb. 27. The Gophers will play
again Saturday, Mar. 1. Minnesota
defeated the Wolverines in two games
earlier in the season by scores of 4-0
and 7-2.

THINGS are brewing on Chi-


i J

cago's Midway.

_.._ 1

Last Monday night the news
broke that the University of Chi-
cago officials were attempting to
line up a schedule of six football
games with small Midwest schools,
thus marking a radical departure
from the Maroon policy which has
been in effect since President Ro-
bert Maynard Hutchins abolished
Western Conference grid compe-
tition last December.
This information gained relatively
little recognition in the nation's press
-not nearly so much as that which
has heralded the passing of Chicago's
big-time intercollegiate program 14
months ago. But it. nevertheless,
looms as a highly significant move.
Here are the developments to
date: The Maroon Athletic Depart-
ment has announced that Wheat-
on, Ill., College, Shurtleff College
of Alton, Ill., the University of
Louisville and Chicago Tech have
been invited to schedule formalized
1l-man grid games with the Uni-
versity. Of these *Louisville and
Shurtleff are reported willing to
arrange contests.
As announced by University author-
ities no admission will be charged
for the tilts, no guarantees will be
awarded the competing teams, in or-
der to keep the games free from
the taint of commercialism, and
freshman and graduate students will
be eligible for competition as well as

Al though the Wolverine wrestlers
lost to Michigan State at East Lan-
sing, 16-14, Wednesday, they have
served notice that they are really
going to be hard to beat in the fu-
Coach Cliff Keen is mighty proud
of his boys-and why shouldn't he
be? Subbing for Johnny Paup, Mar-
vin Becker put up one of the scrap-
piest fights of the meet, though he
lost a disputed match to Bill Max-
well, 15-14. With only a few seconds
to go Becker had a several point ad-
Deane Was Pinned
Ray Deane shot the works with 41k
seconds to go, but everything back-
fired on him and he was pinned. The
I match was close all the way.
Art Paddy came the closest of mak-

and Indiana her Feb. 17. Both oppo-
nents have tough veteran squads,
and both defeated the Wolverines
last year.
Indiana nosed out Michigan in the
Conference meet by one point and
also finished second in the Nationals,
one spot ahead of the home grap-
The Wolverines wrestled before
almost 3,000 fans at East Lansing-
the largest crowd to witness such a
meet in the state. They always say
that a big home crowd doesn't hurt
the team-a good note to remember
for the Indiana meet on the 17th.

AP Sports
Toronto Trimts Wings
TORONTO, Jan. 30.-AP)-Swee-
ney Schriner's 17th goal of the sea-
son, scored within the last three min-
utes of the third period, brought the
first-place Toronto Maple Leafs a.
2-1 victory over the Detroit Red
Wings tonight.
A crowd of 11.921 saw Jimmy
Orlando, husky Red Wing defense
man, add considerably to his stand-
ing as the league's No. 1 "bad'
man." The big black-liner drew a
major penalty for fighting with
Wally Stanowski, then had a mis-
conduct penalty added on for ar-
guing with Referee King Clancy.

started to echo with the familiar
refrain of "Take Me Out to the Ball
Taking limbering up workouts on
their soup-bones are some of Ray
Fisher's pitching candidates for the
1941 baseball campaign, who, under
their own volition, have started to
round their throwing arms into
Stoddard Only Vet
Heading the list of flingers is
Mickey Stoddard, veteran right-
hander of two seasons, who handled
a good bit of the relief twirling last
year. Although he has never gone
the complete distance he has pitched
four or five innings in numerous
games. When the season begins,
Stoddard will be the only pitching
letterman on the squad.
Les Veigel and Tom Netherton,
both reserve lettermen from last sea-
son, are also putting their pitching
arms through warm-up paces; but
neither of these boys have had much
varsity experience. Lefty Muir, a
portsider, and Cliff Wise, substitute
back on the gridiron squad, have
also been spending their free after-
noons loosening up.
Goldsmith To Report
Among those expected to report
when the call for hurlers is issued is
Mase'Gould, a left-hander, and Paul
Goldsmith. Last year Goldsmith was
forced to forego baseball because of
an injury to his arm which he sus-
tained playing hockey.
When asked about the possibilities
for the coming season, Fisher de-
clined to comment, saying that it
was too early to tell what to expect.
He did mention, however, that he
had expected Lyle Bond to handle
most of the pitching this year, but
because of his operation he would
be out for the whole year.
With no pitcher who has gone the
full nine innings, Coach Ray Fisher
will be watching more than ever how
his hurlers round into form.
Yankees Get Contracts
Of Five More Players
NEW YORK, Jan. 30.-('P)-The
New York Yankees received the
signed contracts of five more players
today, three of them recruits from
their minor league farms.
They were Ken Sylvestri, catcher
received in the deal that sent Billy
Knickerbocker to the White Sox;
Steve Sundra, right-handed hurler
who failed last year to match his
great 1939 record; Steve Peek right-
handed hurler who won 14 and lost
four for Newark; Charlie Stanceu,
who had a mound record of 15 and 8
with Kansas City and Mike Chartak,
outfielder brought up from Newark
late last season.

Michigan's Grand Old Man, Field-
ing H. Yost, will retire as athletic
director in the spring, it seems high-
ly probable that he will remain as-

An authoritative source revealed that
a post will be created for him.
Secret Revealed
The truth is now out ... The Mich-
igan gridders were so adept at stop-
ping Ohio State plays last fall because
it didn't take the Wolverines long to
realize that Francis Schmidt's trick
offense usually sent the play over the
spot where the wing-back lined up.

Intramural Sports Department

This latter point precludes re-
newed competition with Big Ten
opponents inasmuch as Conference
eligibility regulations sanction par-
ticipation only for undergraduates.
No team represented Chicago last
fall for the first time in 40 years, ,
but an unofficial squad indulged in
six-man team scrimmage under the
direction of Coach Kyle Anderson.
Apparently this was far from satis-
factory to Chicago's student body.
Explaining this latest Midway action,
Athletic Director Metcalf said that
the University was merely continuing
its policy of "promoting athletics as
an aid to education."
THIS IS tantamount to saying that
intercollegiate football rates a
berth in higher education insofar as
the students desire it. And this is an
abrupt reversal of the viewpoint which
led to abandonment of the sport a
year ago.
The potential effects of Chicago's
newest policy are many. Perhaps
in this compromise position be-
tween no intercollegiate football
whatsoever and the alleged. over-
emphasized football previously
existing, Hutchins has effected a
satisfactory solution to the problem.
One thing has been determined
definitely-organized intercollegiate
football does deserve a place in the
curricula of the nation's institutions
of higher education.
