Owens' Great

Members of Michigan's national
championship golf team have a tough
tournament schedule laid out forj
themselves in the near future.
Three, John Fischer, Chuck Koc-
sis and Dana Seeley, have announced
their intention to attempt to qualify
for the National Amateur meet, in
district trials which willbe held next
week. Koesis, who lives in Detroit,
and Seeley, of Ann Arbor, will play
in the Detroit district qualifying at
Orchard Lake Country Club.
Fischer, a resident of Ft. Thomas,
Ky., will play in the Cincinnati dis-
trict trials. Fischer is the record low
qualifier for the National Amateur, a
record which he will probably hold
forlever, since the old medal play qual-
ifying for places in the championship
play at the meet has been abandoned.
Under the present system, all dis-
trict qualifiers immediately begin
match play in the tournament.
Other Michigan players will be
entered in the Ann Arbor city tour-
nament. Woody Malloy, low medalist
in the National Collegiates, is de-
fending champion and he will be
faed 'by a field which will include
Seeley and Cal Markham, 1935 cap-

State Will Be After
Its Fourth Victory
When Michigan State comes here
Oct. 5 for the opening of the football
season the Spartan gridders will be
seeking their fourth win since the
establishment of relations between
the schools in 1898.
The first Spartan win in almost
two decades was registered last year
under Coach Charlie Bachman when
State won, 16-0.
In 29 games, Michigan has won 23,
lost 3, and played to a scoreless tie,
three times. In 20 of 29 games the
Spartans have failed to score.
The State wins were registered in
1913, 12 to 7, 1915, 24-0, and 1934. +
The scoreless ties were played in
1908, 1930, and 1931.

Feats Topped
Athletic Year
At Peak Of His Form, He

Conference Mile Relay,
Javelin, And Two-Mile
Records Also Broken
Outstanding of all local sports
events of the season was the West-
crn Conference track and field cham-
pionships, held May 24 and 25 on
Ferry Field. And not only did it top
all local sports events, but on the
basis of comparative times and dis-
tances, it was the outstanding track
meet of the year.
With what is undoubtedly the
greatest single performance in the
history of the sport, Jesse Owens was
the center of the meet's attention
as he flashed to three new world's
records while tieing another. At the
peak of his form for the year, Owens
was never more effortless than when
he ran away, never pressed, from his

State for claims of heroic achieve-
ments as they doggedly kept behind
Owens and Ohio State in the team
scoring to win the meet when a for-
gotten and untried relay team stepped
to a new Conference record in that
Owens records were set in the 220-
yard dash, the 200-yard low hurdles,
the broad jump, as he tied the world's
mark in the 100-yard dash. Although
it is understood here that none of
these records have been tubmitted for
recognition, all marks but the short
dash are eligible. In that event an
excessive tail wind recorded by an
anemometer installed on the field
would prevent recognition.
Jumps 26 Feet, 84 Inches
Owen's times were: 100, :09.4; 220,
:20.3; low hurdles, :22.6; broad jump,
26 feet, 8% inches.
Michigan's team, with Willis Ward
still suffering from the effects of a
leg injury incurred when he won
the high hurdles at the Penn Relays,
struggled through 14 of the meet's
15 events to enter the relay trailing
a Buckeye team with six firsts. The
Wolverine points had been garnered
with four fifth places, four fourths,
three thirds, thret seconds, one first
and ties for a first and a fifth.
The first-place points were earned
by Skip Etchells, who got off by more
than eight feet the best throw of
his career in the discus, and Willis
Ward, who earned a tie in the high
jump at 6 feet, 3% inches with Bob
Riegel of Illinois.
Ward also accounted for a second
in the broad jump when he leaped
over 25 feet for the first time in his
life. Captain Harvey Smith, press-
ing behind Don Lash of Indiana in
the mile and Walter Stone, also
behind Lash in the two-mile, gave
Michigan their other second-place
Relay Team Sets Record
In the relay, the team of Fred
Stiles, Harvey Patton, Frank Aikens,
and Stan Birleson, swept through
the whole field to astound everyone
including themselves as they won
in 3:15.2. Not only was the mark a
new conference record, but was the
fastest mile relay ever run east of
the Rockies.
Other marks fell as well as did
Owens' events and the mile relay.

In the mile the sophomore Don Lash
stepped to a new Conference and Fer-
ry Field record of 4:14.4; Mark Pan-
ther of Iowa set Big Ten and Field
marks in the javelin with a throw
of 219 feet, 7$ inches; and Lash
cracked the Ferry Field mark in the
two-mile at 9:23.1.
Much of the success of the meet,
according to observers, was due to the
perfect condition of the track. Fast-
est in the middle west, its condition
was reflected in the times in all
The 1936 outdoor meet although no
official announcement has been made,+
is understood to have been awarded
to Ohio State.;

With one of America's greatest
coaching masters--Fielding H. Yost
- at the helm, Michigan's young
coaching staff is each year writing
new records of Wolverine triumphs
into both the Big Ten and national
athletic books.
There's the great record of Harry
Kipke as football coach - so good
that when his team ran into a com-
pletely disastrous season last year not
a voice was raised among student or
alumni condemning him.
Himself an All-American halfback
and one of the game's greatest punt-
ers, Kipke has turned out All-Ameri-
can players as often as he has turned
out championship teams.
Coming here from Michigan State
in 1929, Kipke hit his stride the fol-
lowing year when the Maize and
Blue, after a long football depres-
sion, tied for the Big Ten title wih
Purdue and Northwestern. Again
in 1931 Kipke drove his team to the
top, but again Northwestern stepped
in to claim its share in the crown.
Newman Great Player
But Kipke's greatest teams had
not appeared even yet. Starting the
1932 season with only fair prospects
of success, the Wolverines found a
great star in Harry Newman and a
great leader in Ivy Williamson. Af-
ter Newman's field goal had defeated
Minnesota, 3-0, Michigan had its
third consecutive Western Confer-
ence championship, and soon after
was awarded the Rockne Trophy,
given by the Four Horsemen, which
is the prize of the national champion
under the Dickinson system.
Kipke was now one of the country's
most famous young coaches. But
still he and his team weren't through.
Three All-Americans--Whitey Wis-
tert, Ted Petoskey, and Chuck Ber-
nard - led the team to a crushing
early-season victory over Ohio State,
13-0, and marched on through the
season until Minesota fought to a
scoreless tie in the final game. But
none could dispute Michigan's Big
Ten title and again the Wolverines
were national champions under the
Dickinson system.
Now, although thinking a little of
his golf game and his yawl, the Flo
(named after Mrs. Kikpe), Kipke is
planning a Maize and Blue football
renaissance to make the debacle of
last year a forgotten thing. And, al-
though Michigan students are hoping
for a return to the 1930-33 days of
gridiron glory,they're also hoping
that Yale under Ducky Pond finds
greener pastures -and forgets that
it would very much have liked to
have Kipke as coach not so long ago.
Hoyt Doesn't Worry
But there's another Michigan coach
who hasn't even had one bad year to
worry about in the memory of even
the graduate students. That's Matt
Mann, swimming coach, who's turned
out such a swarm of great swimmers
and divers in the last decade that
Michigan has won six out of nine
national championships and has lost
the Big Ten title only once in those
nine years.
And here again Michigan thinks of
Yale, hoping this time not that Eli
will forget, but that he will remem-
ber - remember that Yale, with its
impressive string of dozens and doz-
ens of consecutive dual meet victories
and Michigan, with its beltful of Big
Ten and national swimming scalps -
are the most logical of opponents.
But the Blue, under Bob Kiputh, is
shy -so shy that The Daily's sports
editor was prompted to concoct an
imaginary series of letters between
Mann and Kiputh in which the form-
er pleaded to "shoot the works to
see who's champion of the United
States" and Kiputh supposedly re-
plied, "No can do, sorry. A winning
coach always eats." And so the
Maize and Blue swimmers have had
to be satisfied with defeating Yale
several times in the big national
Swimmers Invincible

There's one Michigan coach, at
least, who isn't worrying about Yale.
That's Charley Hoyt, track coach,
but, although he's done plenty of
worrying about Jesse Owens and
Ohio State recently, his teams man-
aged to walk off with both the Con-
ference indoor and outdoor cham-
Twice last spring the Wolverines
defeated Jesse Owens and the power-
ful Buckeye squad-once indoors
and once outdoors-in dual meets.
The only dual meet defeat of the
season was at the hands of Califor-
nia's Golden Bears at Berkely.
For the last eight years Hoyt, who
succeeded the great Steve Farrell as
Michigan track coach, has turned
out teams which have managed to
win each year either the indoor or
outdoor Conference track crown or

'Purest Poppycock,'
Dr. Fishbei Says
NEW YORK, Aug. 14. - (/P) - Two
leaders in medical science stood today
on the assertion that Ralph S. Willard
of Los Angeles can no more freeze
Stephen Simkhovitch to death and
revive him, than he can reassemble
a scrambled egg.
Dr. Iago Gladston, secretary of the
New York Academy of Medicine, said
that when the 80 per cent of body
tissue which is water is frozen, proto-
plasm disrupts and can't be restored.
He termed "preposterous" Willard's
plan to refrigerate the 30-year-old
scenario writer.
Dr. Morris Fishbein of Chicago,
editor of the American Medical Jour-
nai, said Willard's monkey freezing
was "probably achieved by a sneat
trick of substitution which any
competent magician could perform."
"Any claim this man makes," he
added, "about 'freezing' monkeys to
death and bringing them back to life,
is the purest poppycock."

walked off with it, while last year

'Authentic Styles
Are Available In
Ann Arbor Shops
For years it has been the vogue
for well-dressed Michigan men to
find their authentic styles in Ann
Arbor. Local men's shops are pre-
paring to offer a wide variety of
styles in all types of wearing apparel
to the University's incoming students.
But now to a few sartorial hintsA
You will find that Michigan men,
for the most part, pride themselves
in being noticeably well-dressed and
while one does not wish to be called
snobbish, it is still a fact that a man
is judged in some degree by the
clothes he wears.
The conviction is spreading about
the better college campuses that the
best-dressed college men are not the
extremely dressed but rather the ap-
propriately dressed. It is this stand-
ard of better dressing by which the
leading clothes-wearers are adjudged
at Michigan.
To illustrate this point, it might
be said that while a double breasted
close fitting topcoat might be fine
on Park Avenue or Lake Shore Drive,
it still can't compete with a polo coat
in Ann Arbor. You are going to see a
lot of double-breasted camel-hair
coats wit hall-ground belted back
which are both full and free in cut.
They have an easy going appearance
and come in mighty handy when the
winds start blowing across the Sta-
dium turf on Saturday afternoon.
Made To Be Worn
There is an age-old misconception
that when one buys an attractive
suit it is going to turn out to be
short-lived. But this fall everyone
is going to see a great deal of tough
materials woven ito really attractive
suitings. "Twist" fabrics, such as
tweeds, diagnoaI weaves, and the like
are going to enjoy considerable pop-
ularity. This is the open season on
wool socks, and with it comes the
annual breaking out of repressed pat-
tern desires. In a month or so a lot
of students are going to be buying
and wearing hose with more pattern
interest, more color emphasis, and
more design than they have seen in
a long time.
Slacks again will be seen in abun-
dance worn with odd jackets or
heavy woven material or gabardine.
They will continue to carry the con-
ventional pleats and the break in the
length will come just a scant eighth-
inch or so above the shoe tops.
Reversible topcoats are new and
well-liked double duty clothes. The
outside is a bold overplaid Harris
Tweed and the inside is a water-
proofed gabardine.
As to hats, there are several. Car-
ried over from last season will be the
conventional dark brown semi-hom-
burg snap-brim with black band. Al-
so there is the pork pie hat with tele-
scoped crown which comes in a light-
Iweight felt. Still again, there iq the
covert-colored snap brim with a silk
bound edge which carries that sort

the Big Ten schools accepted golf as
a Conference sport. The veteran
Michigan coach has often been
called the "father of Big Ten golf."
One of the busiest men on the
whole coachingg )?'hff is I:anklin
"Cappy" Cappon. Assistant director
of Maize and Blue gridders as head
line coach, he is head coach of the
basketball team.
The Varsity basketball team, under
his direction, appears to be heading
towards the top of the Conference
heap again after several seasons of
but mediocre success. Promising
freshmen, headed by big John Towns-
end, may make the 1935-36 five one
reminiscent of the great title-winning
teams of the days when Benny Oos-
terbaan was an All-Conference star.
Oosterbaan himself remains at
Michigan as coach, as so many of
the whole staff do. Directing the
training of the ends during the foot-
ball season, playing an active part in
the coaching of the Varsity basket-
ball team in the winter, and in the
spring coaching the freshman base-
ball team, Oosterbaan is one of th
busiest men on Ferry Field. Not
only Oosterbaan, but the majority of
the Michigan coaching staff, arQ
graduates of the school of Wolerinr
athletic competition.
Ray Fisher, baseball coach, is an
exception. After years' of maxo
league service as a pitcher for the
New York Yankees and Cincinnai
Reds Fisher came to Michigan whe
he has turned out teams compa
with those of any other school
the Big Ten.
Several of the players he has d-
veloped have graduated to the
leagues. It would be quite unreason-
able to expect any of them to reach
the heights attained by George Sis-
ler, Michigan's greatest ball player,
yet almost every year there is one or
more of his charges that shows major
league promise. Both Whitey Wis-
ter, pitcher, and Ted Petoskey, out-
fielder, were signed by the Cincinnati
Reds after graduation, and are now
getting further training at Fort
Worth and Wilmington.
Michigan has great reason to b
proud of the prowess ofher athletes,
and few forget that the ability and
spirit of Michigan's coaches is re-
flected in that prowess, and that
Wolverine coaches are carrying on a
tradition that means more than vic-
tory-a tradition that has been
uniquely Michigan's for a third of 4

CHICAGO, Aug. 14.- () -Coaches
for the college all stars of 1934 will
meet with George Halas, owner-coach
of the Chicago Bears tonight to agree
on rules to be used in their football
game at Soldier Field August 29.
Although the collegians indicated
they would insist on the use of the
college forward pass rule,.Halas hoped
to obtain a compromise by which
the college rule would be in force
during one half and the national pro
rule the other." Under the college
rule, the passer must be at least five
yards behind the line of scrimmage.
Professional rules allow a pass from
any point behind the scrimmage line. '
With Head Coach Frank Thomas
of Alabama in the hospital suffering
from acute arthritis, Charlie Bach:
man of Michigan State took charge '
of the all stars today as serious drills

began. He was assisted by Doc
Spears of Wisconin and "Slip" Mad-

not be back.
One of the most important phases
of the successful football machine is
its scouting organization - coache
