An Open Letter To MattMann

Wins In 'Trot'
GOSHEN, N Y., Aug. 12.-UP-Bill
Strang, the Brooklyn storage and
trucking man who has spent a small
fortune seeking a Hambletonian
winner, reached his objective today
when the Ambassador led 10 other
three-year old trotters home in the
rich "Buggy Whip Derby" at Good
Time Park.
With 69-year-old Ben White hand-
ling the reins for his third triumph
in the rich stake, the Ambassador
won the second and third heats after
Pay Up, owned by Robert Horace
Johnston of Charlotte, N.C., had
taken the first brush around the
three -sided track.
With the victory went revenge for
the decision hung on Strang's His
Excellency last year by Johnston's
Bill Gallon.

from Amarillo, Texas, will present a
recital at 4:15 p. in., today, in the
Assembly Hall of the Rackham Buil-
The complete program will include
"Italian Concert," by Bach; "Jeaux
d'Eau" and "Le Gibet," by Ravel;
"Reflets dans l'eau" and "Feux d'-
Artifice," by Debussy; and "Sonata
in C major, Op. 53," by Beethoven.
The public is invited to attend this

(We decided to take in the final
Play Production of the year last night,
so Dick Simon consented to writ'e a
guest column-Mike.)
Dear Matt,
For the past 18 years you have pro-
duced the tops in collegiate swim-
ming teams, teams that have never
finished below third in either the Big
Ten Meet or the National Collegiate
championships. And during this pe-
riod of time, you have not always had
the best material with which to work.
Everything you have accomplished
you have done through work, ex-
pert coaching, and above all, friend-
liness to all your boys. Your formula
has been that the best results in ath-
letics can only be accomplished if
the boys get real fun in competing.
But, Matt, the tide is changing.
Schools like Yale and Michigan's
,irch-rival, Ohio State, are getting
the cream of the crop as far as
material goes, and you are still
sticking to your principle that
practice makes perfect, regardless
of the material on hand. You're
right, Matt, you might call this let-

ter a little bt, of my two-bit ad-
Now there is the .crowning threat
to your much coveted honor, the
master of building championship
teams. He's none other than wily
Mike Peppe, swim coach of Ohio
tate's Buckeyes. Yes sir, Matt, sly old
Mike has pulled the wool over your
eyes for the second year in a row.
Last year hle managed to get a fellow
by the name of Kiyoshi Nakama to
come to the Columbus school all the
way from Hawaii.
Now Mr. Peppe has come up with
a swimming sensation who enters
Ohio State as a freshman this fall.
His name is -Smith,' Bill Smith, and
rhe toohails from Hawaii. The 17-
year-old "human fish" didn't do
much' at the ''National AAU outdoor
meet last week He just set new world
records for the 440 and 880-yard free
style events, and set a new American
record for the 220-yard free style.
And that wasn't all that hap-
penelist week-send at the meet.
Nakama also broke the '880-yard
free style record in finishing sec-
ond a few ihehes behind Smith,
and Ohlo State divers camne in sec-
ond, third, fourth and fifth, com-
peting against someof the top di-
vers in lie couutry.
Next season won't be as black as
I'm painting it for you, but you're
going to need some terrific material
to come close to touching Ohio State
and Yale. We know that you've got
some excellent free style prospects in
sophomores Charley Fries and Mer-
ton Church, that Harry Holiday is
a coming star in the .backstroke
event, that Johnny Patten and Jim
Skinner will givethet best of them a
battle in e'heir events, and that Alex
Canja might deVelOp into a top-
notch diver.
Michigan has always been the
champion of "the West and we want
it to stay that way.

At The MIChigan ...
'Fingers at the Window,' M-G-M
terror tale, opens at the Michigan
today starring Lew Ayres, Laraine
Day and Basil Rathbone.
Once again bringing together the
stars of the 'Dr. Kildare' series in
somewhat different circumstances,
this is the story of an epidemic of
axe murders by lunatics. Lew Ayres
plays the role of Oliver Duffy, a like-
able guy who becomes involved with
the madmen of 'Fingers at the Win-
dow' in an attempt to save Edwina
Brown, night club dancer (Laraine
Day.) .
Basil Rathbone returns to the
Michigan for the second time this
week cast as a villainous plotter. In
this film he is Dr. Santelle, mysteri-
ous psychiatrist.
Members of the supporting cast
include Walter Kingsford, Miles
Mander, Charles D. Brown, Cliff
Clark and James Flavin.

At The State
Van Heflin, Marsha Hunt, and Lee
Bowman are cast in the leading roles
of 'Kid Glove Killer' opening at the
State today.
This is a vigorous tale of politics,
district attorneys, gangsters and
murder. It is the film story of a
criminal tracked to earth with the
aid of modern science.
Starring as Jerry Ladimer, under-
world baron, Lee Bowman plays the
role of the slick suave bad man. He
continues his cinematic habit of los-
ing six lovely heroines in six pictures.
This time it is Marsha Hunt.
Cast as the enamoured police sci-
entists who track the 'Kid Glove
Killer' are Van Heflin and Marsha
Hunt. Van Heflin of 'Johnny Eager'
fame is a young chemist with Marsha
Hunt, filmed in 'Joe Smith, Ameri-
can' acting as his assistant.
In the supporting cast are Samuel
Hinds and Cliff Clark.
