Armstrong Pits Homicidal Fists
Against Science For Third Title

Mr. and Mrs. C. 0. Wisdom of Ann
Arbor yesterday announced the en-
gagement of their daughter, Ruth
Arlene, to Graydon L. Welch, '38E.
Mr. Welch is the son of Mr. and Mrs.
M. E. Welch of Chicago. No date
was announced for the wedding.
Another engagement of a Univer-
sity student was announced this week
in Grand Rapids when it was made
known that Dorothy Blake Brownie
of Grand Rapids would marry John
Reys, Jr., '38E, of Ann Arbor, Sept. 3.
The wedding will take place at the
home of the bride-elect's aunt, Mrs.
Anna Simons of Grand Rapids. Mr.
Reys is studying in the University
Summer Session.

There's always been a term in Eng-
lish horse racing appertaining to
horses of medium poundage. They
are called welters. So, when, in
1792, a lot of British boxers found
themselves in between classes-
neither heavyweights nor light-
weights-they fought among them-
selves and called themselves welters.
And they had a champion, Padding-
ton Tom Jones.
Jones weighed 145 pounds, so that
was made the standard for the divi-
sion. Paddy was supreme among the
welterweights for nearly four years,
and then interest in the class sub-
sided. For the next 80 years, the
English welters battled mainly for
side bets and for a sheer love of
fighting, caring little about recog-
nition. After the Civil War, the
public in the U.S.A. became in-

terested in the 145 pounders, and
in the late '80's, Paddy Duffy reigned
supreme. Duffy retired when there
was no one left to beat.
Twenty-two men have held the
title at one time or another after
Duffy's retirement, the present cham-
pion being Henry (Hank) Arm-
strong. "Homicidal" Hank recentlyr
gave Barney Ross one of the worst
thrashings of the latter's career, and,
incidentally, lifting Barney's wel-
terweight crown. Though a badly
beaten fighter, Ross courageously re-
fused to quit, and finished out the.
15-round slaughter, bloody but 'un-
bowed. He later announced his re-
tirement from the ring, stating that
in the future, he would devote his
time to his thriving jewelry business.
Armstrong, who may some day run
afoul of the law, over the question
of restraint of trade, also holds the
featherweight title, and indications
are that he will hold onto both his
welter and featherweight crowns for
quite some time yet, inasmuch as
there seems to be a dearth of chal-
lengers in these divisions. Caferino
Garcia, a welter, who gave Barney
Ross a great fight before going down
to defeat, is the only man who is

In introducing Lawrence S. Camp
(above), of Atlanta, at Warm
Springs, Ga., President Roosevelt
said he hoped Camp would be nom-
inated for the United States Sen-
ate seat of Walter F. George. Camp

form; George is an outspoken New
Deal foe.
considered capable of standing up to
"Hurricane" Hank, who is man-
aged by rotund Eddie Meade, with
the financial backing of Al Jolson, is
now seeking Lou Ambers' lightweight
title. The fight, which was once
postponed because of a hand injury
sustained by Ambers, has been put off
again, this time until next Wednes-
day, Aug. 17. A disappointing crowd
of 8,000 fight fans turned out for
the battle, scheduled for Wednesday,
the 10th, so promotor Mike Jacobs
shoved the fight ahead a week.
If Armstrong does whip Ambers,
he will become the first man to hold
three titles simultaneously, all three
of which, will have been won within
the short space of 10 months. Henry,
who is a notoriously slow starter, will
shadow box six full rounds before the
fight, to make sure that he is "hot,"
when he steps into the ring. Another
fact that is discouraging Amber's
supporters, is that Hank will weigh
in at 135 pounds, according to Man-
ager Meade, and this is Hank's best
fighting weight.

Hail The King.. .
Right now it's about 85 degrees
autside and the big leagues are in the
throes of pennant races but some-
how there's the tang of football in
the air.
Officially, practice won't be-
gin until Sept. 10, just three days
less than a month away. New
Head Coach Herbert "Fritz"
Crisler won't arrive in town un-
til about the 21st of this month
and the newspapers aren't mut-
tering a breath about gridiron
prospects. And yet it's there--
the feeling that King Football is
at the foot of his thrown and
that his annual coronation is
but a step away.
The football spirit this year is go-
ing to be a new one, or at least, one
foreign to the campus for the last
half decade. For the last four weeks!
the thud of a shoe against pigskin'
has been discernible in the vicinity
of Ferry Field. Some of the varsity
men, determined that the five-year
draught should be terminated, have
been working out almost daily, try-
ing to get in their condition licks
before regular practice begins.
And so, working out almost
daily, are Norm Purucker, Fred
Troako, John Nicholson, Jack
Meyer and Ed Christie. Here
Renda, diminutive wing back,
has been working in town and
has been unable to get down to
the informal practice sessions.
* * *
The Michigan Madcap ..
Most, religious of the pre,-season
campaigners, has been Purucker, the
erstwhile Michigan Madcap. His
transformation from last year has
been remarkable. After his "dis-
covery" by the coaching staff half
way through the season, Purucker
displayed triple-threat potentialities.
But Norm liked his fun and refused
to take football too seriously.
It was Purucker who, in the
mud-soaked Pennsylvania game
(memorable as the one Michigan
victory not won by a 74 score)
was sent back to punt on the
second down. He dropped the
slithering ball and fell on it for
about a 10 yard loss. He repeated
on third down and then, on last
down, got away a beautiful punt.
After the game Purucker let it

be known that he dropped the
first two on purpose because he
"wanted to see what he could do
when the pressure was really on."
But it may be a different Purucker
next fall if his Ferry Field sessions
are anything more than just a sum-
mer romance. He's been practicing
kicking into Coffin Corner and a ma-
jority of his boots have been spiral-
ing between 50 and 70 yards. Crisler
may discard the famous Michigan
aunt-pass-and-pray system but he
won't be averse to 60 yard kicks
into the corners at crucial spots.
While Purucker gets off his
punts, varsity end John Nichol-
son is getting down under them.
It's no easy job to whip down
under those long spirals but
when you can get down there
in a hurry consistently it's a
pretty good indication that you
are in better than fair condition.
It was Nicholson who caught that
50-yard pass to give the varsity
its 7-6 victory over the Illini on
Bob Zuppke's silver anniversary.
Et tu, Trosko
Fred Trosko, the sophomore hope
last year and an experienced junior
this fall, has been teaching his edu-
cated toe a few more tricks this
summer. It was Trosko who booted
the place kicks to give Michigan the
spirit of 7 t' 6 three times. Himself
a booter of no little ability, Fred
has also been kicking as well as
brushing upon his passing. Trosko,
by the way, was the pitching end
of the Illinois pass.
The only freshman working
out (and the only man in Sum-
mer Session) is chunky Jack
Meyer. Meyer, another triple
threat man, has been neglecting
nothing and his 190 pounds
packed on a 5 foot 8 Inch frame
looks as tho it will be plenty
hard to stop.
But more inportant than the abili-
ty these men show is their new atti-
tude. It is an attitude typical of
the new spirit brought here by Cris-
ler. The men are sick.of playing on
mediocre teams-they want to play
on a winner even more than the cam-
pus wants to cheer for one.
This new spirit, this will to win, is
going to play a more important part
in the Michigan football renaissance
than any coaching innovation the
new staff will bring.

AA, Aug. 13.

When you register at the University of Michigan this fall, the follow-

ing spring, and in subsequent years throughout your college career, do you realize how many
times you must write yourname on official University records? Every registration blank
is divided into 16 cards, and on each one your first, middle, and last name must legibly appear.
Every class card, every election blank, and all other official records require your name. In
short, every student is required to sign his name from sixty to seventy times during regis-
tration each year.









ample, goes to the Student Directory office, which makes up the Student Directory for
that year. Naturally, there is no need for us to stress the importance of having your name
clearly written on these blanks so that it will appear in the proper place in the Directory
and so there will be no errors in filing by the University due to poor handwriting.
Therefore, CALKINs-FLETCHER DRUG STORE Is offering a unique time saver, labor
saver, and confusion saver in the form of a VESTPOCKET NAME STAMP, which has the
approval of the University officials. A neat, chrome-plated case two inches long by half an
inch wide - no larger than a small pen-knife - with an ink pad inside will save you no end
of trouble not only during registration, but all throughout college on your class papers.
These stamps have the hearty approval of the University Business Office and your profes-
sors-to-be. In short, they are indispensible during your college days.
One of these stamps with your name appearing in this manner - JOHN HENRY
SMITH -may be yours by printing your full name on this coupon and sending it with
25c in stamps immediately to CALKINS-FLETCHER DRUG, 324 South State St., Ann

Each card which you fill out goes to a different office of the University.
