J GOLDSTEIN penalized Charle

interesting contest. The fight wa

after the early warnings.
Two officials had Charles out

stein had it 7-2, giving Oma
only the rounds he got on fouls
Judge Charley Shortell had it
6-3 for Charles and Judge Frank
Forbes saw it 4-4 with one even,
going into the tenth. The AP card
showed it for Charles 6-2-1. The
34-year Oma, tiring, badly after
the fifth round, caught the fancy
of the crowd of 11,504 that paid
$54,185 by his ability to shake off
Charles' Sunday punches.

The end came inexpectedly
although it didn't seem Oma
could continue to take the ham-

longer without going down.
Charles burst from his corner,
infuriated by $he boos and his in-
ability to drop Oma. Two jabs
were followed by a right to the
jaw, then cames eight searing left
hooks $o the head without return.
Oma, trying to dance away, was
obviously in a bad way. When an-
other hook drove him into full re-
treat, Goldstein folded him in his
r arms and led him to his corner.
In many states this would go in-
to the record books as a technical
knockout but New Yor does not
recognize a technical knockout.
Stock Named
Grid Manager
Leon Stock '52, was named sen-
ior manager for the 1951 Michi-
gan football season, it was an-
nounced yesterday.
Also named on the grid mana-
gerial staff were Gerry Dudley,
Pelham, New York; Bob Fremlin,
Milford; Bob Grew, Blissfield; and
Chuck Weigand, Gowanda, New
\York. They will serve as next fall's
junior managers.
Stock, who was a junior mana-
ger this season, is from Detroit.
He succeeds Bill Searle, Winnet-
ka, Ill., in the senior post.

Controversial Sanity Code
Abolished at NCAA Meeting
DALLAS--W)-The sanity code of the National Collegiate Ath-
letic Association was killed last night.
The controversial regulation covering financial aid to athletes
was knocked out of the NCAA constitution and control of such aid
to athletes was returned to individual schools and conferences. The
code lost by a vote of 130 for and 60 against.
** *' *
THE AMENDMENT as passed was presented by Ed Parsons,
Athletic Director of Northeastern University of Boston. The amend-
ment returns enforcement of the code to schools and conferences
themselves and retains a part of the constitution which forbids re-
cruiting. The recruiting clause was kept in, it was reported because
eastern colleges wanted it and would support the amendment spon-
sored by the Southern Conference if it were retained.
When Dr. Hugh C. Willett of Southern California, President
of the NCAA, announced the result of the vote there were cheers
all over the room.
The sanity code had provided that athletes could get their fees
and tuition under a scholarship but would have to work for room,
board and laundry.
* * * *
MANY OF THE SCHOOLS said there were not sufficient jobs on
the campuses for athletes to earn their room and board, also thaw an
athlete who made his courses and participated in football did not
have time to work.
The code had been in effect since January, 1948.

Michigan Natators Face
Powerful Spartan Squad

Coach Matt Mann takes the lid
off his varsity Wolverine swim-
ming team this afternoon at Easi
Lansing as t h e high-spirited
Maize and Blue squad faces a very
powerful Michigan State team ir
a Big Ten dual meet.,
This is the first year that the
Spartans are eligible for Confer-
ence swimming, and they made
quite a splash in their first meet
when they walloped Northwestern
55-29 last Saturday.
TODAY'S MEET will be a real
test of the Michigan squad's
One of the main reasons for
the respect given the State
squad lies in the ability of a
Spartan speed merchant named
Chuck Scholes.
Against Northwestern last week
he did the 50 yard free style in
:23 flat. In flying across the pool
in that time he bettered by one-
tenth 0o a second the :23.1 Big Ten
record set by Waldeman Tomski
of Michigan back in 1940.
" * s
DICK MARTIN, Jim White, and
Johnny Reis are the Wolverines
that have to swim against Scholes
in the 50 yard free style.
There is another boy at State
that might cause the Maize and
Blue a little trouble, and that's
Harold Shoup. Shoup s p e d
across the pool in 2:15 flat in
the 200 yard back-stroke against
the Wildcats.
Pitted against Shoup will be
veteran Bernie Kahn, along with
Jack Arbuckle, Jim Peterson, and
Dick Howell.
* * *
SHOUP ALSO is the big gun in
the 300 yard medley relay. He
tear .ed up with Jim Quigly and Al
O)r ans to beat Northwestern in
2: 8. Michigan's medley team con-
sts of Kahn, Stewart Elliott, and
ither captain Dave Neisch or
Johnny Reis. The Wolverines are
slight favorite to take this event.


Leading 220 free styler for the
Spartans is Bert McLachan
whose last time was recorded
at 2:12.5, which is a very fast
bit of swimming. Michigan's
Luis Childs, Reis, and Walt Jef-
fries will have a hard time in
this race.

Michigan will go after its sec-
ond victory in four Conference
basketball games tonight when it
meets league-leading Illinois at
The contest appears to be the
most severe assignment of the sea-
son so far for the Wolverines.
They will be called upon to halt
an Illini combination which has
swept aside Wisconsin, Minnesota
and Iowa.
** *
MICHIGAN was beaten by Wis-
consin and Northwestern and
holds its lone decision over Pur-
due. Both the Wolverine setbacks
were narrow decisions, however.
The pacemakers have found
their principal strength in bal-
ance of height and scoring abil-
ity. Their starting five averages
Examination of t h e team's
point-making record discloses that
five players have registered more
than 100 points in 11 starts. The
leader is Captain Don Sunderlage
with 158.
SUNDERLAGE is a guard and
incidentally is the first team's
shortest man (6-0)- Alnsidl him

ing up nine decisions. Only De-
Paul and Toledo have been able to
stop them.
MICHIGAN, on the other hand;
measures six-two on the average
and has concentrated scoring
among three players, Leo Vander-
Kuy, Jim Skala and Torn Tiernan.
Guard Charlie Murray has 78
points but most of them came on
free throws.
The fifth starter, Bob Olson,
has been offensively inconsistent
but continues to crack the line-
up for his rebounding ability. It
can be expected that Bill Putich
will spell him part of the time
at the other guard position.
Following tonight's encounter
the team will move on to Minnea-
polis where it is scheduled to play
Minnesota Monday night.
