Daily Sports Editor_ J
HIND in the world of sports.
In view of the large-scale build-t
ing program announced recently,
this may appear to be a startling
proposition-and in view of the
extensive weekly 'schedule of var-
sity contests it may seem a little
But set up a comparative pic-
ture. Michigan has at present
varsity teams in Western Confer-!
ence competition representing
football, basketball, wrestling in-
door and outdoor track, swim-
ming, tennis, golf, baseball and1
Illinois has these, AND fenc-
ing, gymnastics, cross-country-
all of which are varsity-letter
sports. Wisconsin goes even fur-
ther-having varsit'y competi-
tion as well in crew and boxing.
Michigan, in other words, has
eight sports in which a man
may earn an "M"-Wisconsin
has twelve. Illinois has ten.
We see no reason why the Uni-
versity of Michigan could not
sponsor a varsity team in boxing,
fencing, and gymnastics. Within
the next three days The Daily will
present a survey of the present
situation in each of these three
activities, and present an argu-
ment of two in favor of their adop-
tion as letter-sports.
The petition procedure out-
lined in the accompanying news
story has a little ring of famili-
arity in it. Several years ago a
similar petition for a similar
team was submitted to the same
Board-and it didn't get by the
first round. Reasons for such
action were naturally listed, the
two most important being that
sufficient competition was un-
available for a varsity team and,
furthermore, boxing was a little
too dangerous.
AS WE SEE IT four main ques-
tions must be answered by the
Board in determining the feasi-
bility of establishing boxing on a
varsity level. The first deals with
the financial angle. With capacity
crowds on hand for practically ev-
ery sport this season, we can hard-
ly see how the'future could be very
dark in this respect. Furthermore,
boxing, wherever it has been es-
tablished. has never failed to be
a drawing card. With suitable
matches arranged, it could pay
its own way in a short time.
The second question is whe-
ther or not there is sufficient in-
terest in the sport. This is eas-
ily answered by the facts. there
are a thousand signatures on the
petition, and twenty men are
working out regularly now.
The third question concerns fa-
cilities. Practice space is available,
and is being used now, in the I-M
building, and a removable ring
for meets could easily be set up
in Yost Field House, and just as
easily taken down when the bouts
. The fourth, and most important,
question is that of sufficient com-
petition. Among the Big Nine
schools there are teams at Wiscon-
sin and Minnesota, and up in East
Lansing there is Michigan State.
All three of these schools have
been able to find a most satis-
factory number of opponents. Why
couldn't Michigan: There is no
drawback here.

,In the hope of creating a greater
interest in hockey as a collegiate
sport, Coach Vic Heyligsr of the
University of Michigan has insti
tuted a campaign to determine a1
National Collegiate Hockey Cham-
Under the auspices of the Na
tional Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion, Heyliger would have a play-
off of teams representing the Far
West, The Rocky Mountain Area.
The Mid-West region, and the
East Coast with the winner taking
national honors.
Interest in Hockey Growing
With the interest in hockey
growing all over the United States,
Heyliger's chief problem is one of
organization. He has drawn up
plans for the organization of the
four sectors into individual leagues
in order to determine sector cham-
In the Far West Heyliger has
hopes of getting all the Coast
schools in the league. California
and Washington now have teams,
and they will be joined next sea-
son by Stanford and possibly two
other schools.

Billiard Stars
In Union Tilt
Michigan Union's pool parlor
will be the scene of fancy billiards
action at 7:00 p.m. tonight as a
quintet of Wolverine performers
combine talents in the opening
round of inter-collegiate pocket
billiards competition.

sored by the Billiards Association
of America, includes top-ranking
contenders from 27 colleges and

will be staged on February 26 and

cohorts Jim Mummey, Andy Pawi

stand ready for reserve duty.
Key Shot System Followed
Don Krueger, who made the nec-
essary arrangements for tonight,
revealed that all billiards events
will be conducted on a telephone
basis. Participants, he pointed out,
will follow a key shot system of
play, which permits intercollegiate
competition on an "absentee
basis." This means players do not
have to leave their home campus.
Wedding .
77North University Ave.

The Rocky Mountain Region
now has teams at the University of
Colorado, whom Michigan played
on their western trip, and Mon-
tana School of Mines. These teams
would be the nucleus of about a
six-team league.
Wolverines Head Mid-West
In our own Big Nine Conference,
which would represent the Mid-
West schools, Minnesota and
Michigan already have teams.
To supplant these schools Illi-
nois, who played intercollegiate
hockey before the war, will proba-
bly have a team again next fall.
Both Purdue and Wisconsin are
toying with the idea of having
teams, and the Michigan College
of Mines has indicated a desire to
play in a league of this sort.
Wealth of Material in East
In the Eastern States a wealth
of material for a league makes
Heyliger's idea more imposing.
The Ivy League, which has among
its members Yale, Harvard, Cor-
nell, Princeton, and Pennsylvania,
could play the independent schools
to determine the national repre-
sentative of the East.
Each of the regional champions
would meet every year to establish
the National Collegiate champion
of the United States. Since Can-
ada already has Canadian Col-
legiate playoffs, Heyliger posed the
possibility that a further playoff
could determine the collegiate
champion of North America.
