Two Wolverine Wrestlers
From Big Ten
Maroons Cite Season
Cage Mark as Reason
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, March 8-The Univer-
sity of Chicago, a charter member and
once a dominating power under
Alonzo Amos Stagg, today withdrew
from the 50-year-old Big Ten Confer-
ence because of athletic impotency.
Long expected, the withdrawal of
the faded Maroons, whose halycon
past held seven undisputed Confer-
ence football championships, equalled
only by Minnesota's modern Gophers,
paved the way for a possible new
Final Action in May
The withdrawal was announced at
a meeting of Conference Athletic Di-
rectors by T. Nelson Metcalf, Chi-
cago Athletic Director, but final ac-
tion on the move awaits the spring
meeting of the Conference faculty
representatives at Champaign, Ill.,
May 30-31. The Maroons will com-
pete until the end of the school year.
At that time, also, formal delibera-
tions are expected on possible re-
placement of the Maroons. The Ath-
letic Directors shied away from the
subject after expressing "deep and
sincere" regrets at Chicago's depar-
Other Prospects Named
Named frequently as Conference
prospects ever since Maroon athletics
hit the skids after Stagg's departure
in 1933, were such schools at Pitts-
burgh, Nebraska, Michigan State,
M~arquette, Notre Dame, and Iowa
Metcalf said Chicago was "forced
to a decision" in its withdrawal by
the recent Conference basketball sea-
son in which the Maroons ran up
their 60th straight defeat.
The Maroons, he explained, would
continue intercollegiate competition
in all sports except football which
was formally dropped in 1939.

of the three heats. Archie Parsons
running in Thomason's htat also
qualified. Herb Barten and Chuck
Low are the other two Michigan qual-
ifiers in the run.
The Illini placed two contenders in
the finals, however, with Herb Mc-
Kenley and Bob Rehberg. Other en-
trants will be Purdue's Ashley Hawk
and Don Weber.
Wolverines Fail To Place
Illinois qualified three men for the
finals of the 60 yard dash while the
Wolverines filed to place. Bill Mathis,
Bill Buster, and Jack Pierce of the
Champaign squad all won their heats.
LaBeach of Wisconsin copped the
honors in the fourth heat.
"Dike" Eddleman and Gene Trau-
del gave the Illini more potential
point-winners in the broad jump,
with jumps closely approaching Le-
Beach's. As in the 60 yard dash, the
Maize and Blue failed to qualify any-
one in the finals.
Michigan placed four men in the
semi-final heats of the 440 yard pre-
liminaries, but in the finals, only,
Hugh Short and Horace Coleman'
made the grade for the Wolverines.
McKenley, Hugh Gonzalez, and Bill
Buster came through for Illinois. Bill
Covery of Minnesota was the sixth
George Walker, Dan Shuman, and
John Moake gave Illinois another
three to two edge in the high hurdles.
Elmer Swanson and Neil MacIntyre
earned the right to run for the Wol-;
verines in tomorrow's finals. Wis-
consin and Minnesota each placed
two men in the event.
Swanson, Michigan's Captain and
former conference champ, was the
only Maize and Blue qualifier in the
70 yard low hurdles. Shuman also
will run in the finals of this event for
the Orange and Blue.

Activities at the Sports Building,
continued over the between-semesters
vacation for the benefit of students
who remained on campus, will offer a
well-rounded recreational and com-
petitive program to all University
men again this semester.
Tournaments are being organized
in squash, bowling, boxing, fencing,
gymnastics, paddleball, rifle-shoot-
ing and handball, both singles and
doubles. Entries for the tournaments
can now be turned in to the Intr6i-
mural Department. Competition will
get under way in the near future.
All men interested in getting pre-
pared for the approaching spring
weather 'can warm up on their tennis
game or iron out the wrinkles in their
golf driving any week day. The in-
door tennis courts are available for
8 p.m. to 2 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7
p.m. while the golf driving nets can
be used at any hour.
Instruction is still being offered in
fencing, gymnastics, weight-lifting,
swimming and boxing from 7:30 p.m.
to 10 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday
and Thursday. Although league com-
petition in basketball has been com-
pleted except among the professional
fraternities, any teams which desire
to play games should advise the In-
tramural Department and contests
will be scheduled.

stroke event for the first time this
season and wound up the only Michi-
gan qualifier in the race.
Kessler, Sohl Miss Out
Mann's other breast strokers, de-
fending champion Heini Kessler and
Bob Sohl failed to make the grade.
Jim' Counsilman showed the way
for the Buckeyes in the 200-yard
breast stroke event with a slow 2:30.
The Buckeye captain was one of three
Ohioansto qualify in the event.
A close battle in them 50- and 100-.
yard freestyle races loomed for to-
morrow night's finals. Haulenbeek
paced the trials by winning against
such speedsters as Halo Hirose of
Ohio, Dick Weinberg of Michigan and
Kenny Marsh in the 50 and Hirose,
Charles Fries of Michigan and Wein-
berg in the 100 will probably take a
lot better efforts than his respective
best times of :23.4 and :52.5.
Weinberg, Mann Pace Michigan
Weinberg and Matt Mann, II, led
the Wolverines, each qualifying in
two events. Weinberg scored in the
50 and 100 freestyle races while
Mann entered the finals field in his
specialties, the 220- and 440-yard
As expected Michigan failed to
qualify a single man in the 150-yard
backstroke. Tommy Maine of Iowa
topped the backstroke field with Ohio
State gaining a pair of qualifiers in
Dick Fetterman and Dick Reusche.
Maine is the favorite to beat the
Buckeye duo in the finals.
Michigan and Ohio State will
probably battle it out for the relay
finals tomorrow n i g h t although
Northwestern led the field home in
the 300-yard medley relay and Min-
nesota had the best time for the
400-yard freestyle relay.
Times Very Slow
For the qualifying trials tonight
there was only one good time as most
of the favorites were content to take
it easy and save their strength for
the finals tomorrow night. Hill's
effort in the 440-yard freestyle was
the lone near-record effort.
It is doubtful whether the Buck-
eye can duplicate his performance
again tomorrow night since he will
also be swimming in the 220-yard
freestyle race. The 220 was not run
off tonight since a field of only five
men were entered and all were auto-
matically qualified for the finals.
