* OSU Is Very Happy
" Seems Yale Beat Us
ByH AL WILSON
Daily Sports Editor
ONE of the most absorbing centers
of interest on campus to us is
the desk drawer up here at The Daily
wherein are deposited each day the
collection of exchange newspapers
from other universities and cities.
From all over the country they
come-and invariably you can find
something of keen interest con-
tained in the journalistic endeavors
of these other college writers and
metropolitan scribes. Read this
morning, for instance, some of these
thoughts turned out by other sports
GENE FRIEDMAN, Ohio State Lan-
tern: "Nothing was so gratifying
to us as reading that Michigan's
great swimming team, undefeated
in 38 consecutive dual swimming
meets, had been completely sub-
merged by Yale. The Elis not only
swamped the inflated Wolverines, but
swept every first plac.
"We don't expect Ohio State to win
the intercollegiate swimming cham-
pionship, but as long as the Buck-
eyes can't have it, we don't know of
anyone we'd rather see win it than
the team that squashed Michigan."
LINC WILLISTON, The Daily
Illini: "Several theories have
been forwarded for the surge of
scoring punch in the Big Ten this
season. Probably the greatest sin-
gle cause for the hot basket shoot-
ing is the presence of lowly Chi-
cago, which has held but one club
below 50 points this season."
TED CLARK, Purdue Exponent:
"Once again there is pressure for
Chicago to bow out of the Western
Conference . . . certainly a com-
mendable idea however you look at it."
MARV RAND, Wisconsin Daily
Cardinal: "Will Chicago take a few
more hints and withdraw from the
Big Ten entirely?"
CHARLES FISHER, Philadelphia
Record: "We know the Japanese
are sensitive on the subject of base-
ball, but we don't believe it was fair
of them to go after the Athletics with
gunfire the moment they arrived on
the West Coast for spring training."
JOE CUMMISKEY, P.M.: "Leslie
Mac Mitchell, NYU .automaton, is
not often front runner in his races,
except, of course, at the finish. But
he offers some interesting reasons
for not setting the pace: 'When I'm
in front I'm conscious of fighting
wind-resistance. I know there's no
wind indoors but a runner moving
at seven yards per second creates
his own breeze. It makes my eyes
water and I can't keep my mind
on the race'"
JOHN K. TABOR, Yale Daily News:
"The outstanding performer for
Yale and of the meet as a whole, was
unquestionably Leroy Schwarzkopf
(brother of Michigan's 1940 track
captain, Ralph). He began his day's
work by smashing his own year-old
Cage record for the one mile run, as
he ran the distance in 4:16.2, missing
the all time Yale record by only two
tenths of a second."
THE PITT NEWS:
"Died: The University of Pitts-
burgh basketball team last Tues-
day evening at 9:30 o'clock at the
Carnegie Tech gymnasium in its
12th game of a prolonged illness.
The Panther squad was born on
Dec. 20, 1941, at Evanston, Ill.
"The health of the deceased was
steadily declining until this week
when the 'Tartan Terrors,' con-
querors of Thiel, Allegheny and
Case, proved just too much for

father, Doctor H. Clifford Carlson

But for the most exciting battle of
the night all eyes were focused on
the 200 yard breaststroke event
where Michigan's John Sharemet
and State's Chuck Bigelow staged as
exciting a race as has ever been seen
in Jenison pool.
For the first five laps the two con-
testants were. abreast of each other
at every turn. Then Bigelow, re-
sponding to the home crowd's cheers,
sprinted ahead of Sharemet on the
sixth length. And he remained five
yards in front until the last turn was
reached, at which point John, gath-
ering steam with every stroke, over-
took him and breezed home the win-
ner by two yards in the time of 2:37.1.
Biggest surprise of the night, how-
ever, was the victory of sophomore
John Wiese in the 150 yard back-
stroke. The Wolverine, up to now
the squad's third backstroker, went
out in front at the gun and stayed
there until the finish, edging team-
mate Ted Horlenko by a scant hand.
His time was 1:43.
In the 220 yard freestyle it was
Patten and Michigan's Lou Kivi all
the way, while in the 440 Patten and
Walt Stewart finished a pool length
and a half ahead of the Spartan en-
Gus Sharemet barely beat out
State's Ralph Newton and Harold
Heffernan to win the 50 in the time
of 24.6. The Michigan 440 yard free-
style relay quartet had an easy time
of it as they stroked their way to a
lap victory, covering the distance
in 3:56.6. Riedl, swimming a free-
style part for the first time in his
career, turned in a very acceptable

Boasting a record of three wins in
as many starts, the 1942 edition of
the Wolverine track squad wili set
out for Chicago Friday on the trail
of the Western Conference indoor
title which Indiana took away from
Michigan last year and, from all in-
dications, quite a task lies in store
for the Wolverine thinclads.
For a dark horse has crept into the
picture this year. Ohio State's ram-
bling Buckeyes are on the war-path
and if previous records can be taken
for any sort of criterion, the long-
striding Bucks will carry back to
Columbus with them the first Big
Ten indoor track crown in their his-
tory. Undefeated in five meets this
season, the Ohio State cindermen
sport impressive victories over such
powers of the cinder circle as Penn
State and Illinois, and not a bookie
can be found who will refuse to give
odds for the Buckeyes to continue
their winning ways in the Conference
Wright Paces Buckeyes
Blazing Bob Wright, the lanky
hurdler and dash star of the Ohio
State crew upon whom sportswriters
have heaped more superlatives than
any one Buckeye since the inimitable
Jesse Owens, leads the Ohio attack.
In the meet with Illinois last Satur-
day, the colorful Wright won three
events, the 60 yarddash, the 70 yard
low hurdles in which he tied the
fieldhouse record, and the 70 yard
high hurdles. And, in several meets
when time permitted, the Buckeye
junior has even gained points in the
Comparative records of the Big
Ten teams give evidence, however,
that Wright will not have such easy
sailing in the Conference meet. In
the 60 yard dash, for example, there
are six men of almost equal ability,
with the fifth having just as good
a chance of winning as the first.
Michigan Trio In Sprints
Ralph Hammond, Wright's fellow
Buckeye, and Lee Farmer of Iowa
hold the best record for this event,
both having turned in a very fast
6.2 seconds in earlier meets. These
two are followed by Michigan's three
speed demons, Al Thomas, Capt. Al
Piel, and Lenny Alkon, and Wright,
all of whom have sprinted the dis-
tance in 6.4 seconds. Track experts
have long maintained that in any
sprint event, it is the runner who.
gets the best start who stands the
best chance of breaking the tape, and
with times as nearly equal as these
six aces hold, it would be possible for
any one of them to blaze his way to
a win in the Big Ten meet.
Somewhat the same situation pre-
sents itself in the high and low hurd-
les. The versatile Wright is given the
edge in both events, with, his team-
mate George Hoeflinger, Don Olsen
of Illinois, Henry Vollenweider of
Iowa, or Michigan's injured Frank
McCarthy all holding . an outside
chance of ousting the favorite from
his winner's spot. In the lows, some
prognosticators are picking Wolver-
ine Al Thomas or Olsen of Illinois to
upset the Buckeye ace. Michigan
sophomore Chuhck Pinney will also
be a threat in this contest.
Running in a special half-mile race
during the Michigan-Pitt meet last
Friday night, Ross Hume, star of the
Wolverine freshman crew, recorded
a time of 1:58.4 seconds, just one-
tenth of a second off the all-time
Michigan freshman mark. Bob
Hume, twin brother of the winner,
placed second in the race.

Ice Squad Is
Pucksters Lose But Give
No Quarter To Gophers
By STAN CLAMAGE
Probably the most disgusted person
in the world is the rabid sports fan
who has just missed a real bet to see
action and thrills at the best. When
he realizes what has happened, he
just about tears the last hair out of
a formerly prized handful.
Last Saturday night after the
Michigan hockey team had put up a
futile struggle against the perennial
Minnesota rival, several persons-in-
cluding two seniors and two juniors---
came up to this writer and asked
".where have I been all these years?"
Most of them had read little of Wol-
verine puck victories, and consequent-
ly, they never bothered to brave the
weather and see what was going on
down at the Coliseum. And right
now there are many scattered locks
covering the ice on Hill Street.
Eddie Lowrey's sextet has played
13 games this season, winning only
one and tying another. And that's
no record to brag about. But no-
body is bragging about the record;
the entire squad has tried, and that's
all anyone can ask. Right now the
attendance records boast a red hot
average of 650, and the Coliseum can
handle double that number.
About the Gopher series there is
little to say. , The Michigan outfit
played hockey with Larry Arm-
strong's crew and played just as well
as the visitors-except in one case.
And a mighty important case it
turned out to be. While the Go-
phers pounded on Hank Loud for
five markers, the best the Wolverines
could do was to garner but a lone
goal. After all, when you boil it all
down, isn't that what really counts.
Hockey Thrills 'Em
Sport to sport, hockey rates right
at the top as one with spectator
thrills. For three 20-minute periods,
there's alway& something doing. And
Saturday's battle was far from an ex-
Every time Big Johnny Gillis sent
someone crashing into the boards, the
noise was picked up and echoed by

this problem and has already started
to work to build another Conference
Three Dozen Hurlers
The venerable coach has had close
to 35 pitchers working out in the
Yost Field House during the past
three weeks and will have his entire
squad in full swing before the week
Fisher has been forced to spend
most of his time with the freshman
and sophomore hurlers since his en-
tire pitching staff of last year is no
longer with him.
With the close of the basketball
season last night, it is expected that
at least five more of the cagers will
trade their gym shoes for cleats and
report to the indoor diamond.
