Billy Jo Ready for Comeback

Eino Hendrickson will be some-
where close to the action when
Wisconsin hosts the Wolverine
cagers at 4 p.m. today.
The game will be televised by
channel 2 in Detroit, but chances
are slim that any of the viewers
will get a look at Eino.
This might not bother TV ad-
dicts any, but it is awfully up-
setting to Badger coach John
Eino is very close to the heart
of Erickson, primarily because
Eino's head is very close to a regu-
lation basket. Like it sort of
brushes against his hair.
Eino Hendrickson is 7'1" tall,
and he's only a freshman. That'sI

the whole problem for Wisconsin.
But Wait Til Next Year
Without their gangling prodigy,
the Badgers are a very short team
forced to play running basketball.
But for all their huffing and puff-
ing, they don't win too often. Such
is the fate of a starting five av-
eraging 6'3".
Occasionally, however, the little
Badgers have a grand night and
their shooting percentage soars.
Such was the case early this
month when they stunned confer-
ence front runner Iowa.
This impressive accomplishment
should prevent Michigan from en-
tertaining prospects of a relaxing

ideas of course. To them the Wol-

Cindermen Enter Open;
Tankers Host Two Meets

The wraps come off the 1966
edition of Michigan's track and
field team today as the Wolverines
compete in the Western Michigan
The Open yearly draws out-
standing teams from lower Mich-
igan and the surrounding area.
This year, in addition to the host
Broncos of WMU, teams from
Eastern Michigan, Central Mich-
igan, and Bowling Green are ex-
pected to enter the competition.
The meet, however, is primarily
designed for individual competi-
tion. No team standings are kept,
and no team is crowned Open
champion. Only one team event,
the mile relay, will be run.
First Competition
This, the first track meet of the
indoor season, will provide the

coaches with a look at just what
the Blue has this year. Assistant
coach Dave Martin, when asked
how the team shapes_ up for this
year, commented, "Well, we really
don't know. That is what this
meet is for." But he does feel that
the Wolverines will have depth.
"The team shows a lot of balance
this year. We have three good
sprinters, and three good high
jump men."
At Kalamazoo today, Bob Den-
sham, Rick Hunt, and promising
sophomore Dan Purple will com-
pete in the high jump.
Carl Ward, Willie Brown, Doie
Reid, and Dave Cooper will par-
ticipate in the 60-yard dash.
Team captain George Canamare,
along with Matti Kilpelainen, will
compete in the pole vault.

Since the meet is open compe-
tition, Michigan will take along
somef r e s hm a n competitors.
Though most will compete in the
novice division,, two are scheduled
to participate in the open divi-
sion against varsity personnel.
Jim Olson will run unattached in
the half-mile, and Tom Kearney
will run the mile.

Unbeatens Clash
Coach Newt Loken's undefeated
gymnasts face unbeaten Big Ten
foe Wisconsin at 1:30 p.m. in the
Z-M Bldg.
Loken says that the boys are
fired up for the challenge, and
hope today to meet their goal of
a 9.0 average per man, which they
missed by only .11 last weekend.
The Badgers have some top
notch performers, and should give
the Wolverines their toughest test
so far, according to Loken.
Matmen Face Purdue
The Purdue Boilermakers, hop-
ing to prevent the Wolverine
wrestling squad from launching a
new winning streak, meet the Blue
grapplers today at 3 p.m. in the
I-M Bldg. immediately following
the gymnastics meet.
Michigan coach Cliff Keen is
confident that his squad will per-
form well, though, and reverse the
outcome of last week's loss to

verines will look like Brobdingna-
The hugest man of all will ap-
pear to be Cazzie Russell, who is
currently the leading scorer in the
Big Ten. In conference games he
is averaging 34.5. If he can hold
that mark for the rest of the sea-
son, Cazzie would become holder
of the single season scoring rec-
ord currently possessed by Gary
Bradds (33.9).
To offset Russell and Michigan's
devastating rebounding ability, as
demonstrated against Minnesota,
the Badgers might juggle their
line-up to get more height.
In positive terms, Wisconsin's
main strong point is depth. Eight
different players have cracked the
starting line-up at various times
this season. Several of them earn-
ed " shots at both guard and for-
ward. Some people might prefer to
call such versatility an inability
to find a starting five.
In All Likelihood ...
Most likely to be introduced to
the audience at the start of the
game are center Mark Zubor,
guard Mike Carlin, and forward
Ken Barnes.
Zubor is a solid 220-pounder
and stands 6'6". Michigan's assist-
ant coach Jim Skala scouted the
Badgers and said Zubor is much
improved over last year when he
was second in scoriig and re-
Carlingis a sophomore guard
who acts as playmaker while
Barnes is a hot-shot corner man
although he only stands 6'3".
Last year's leading rebounder
and scorer Ken Gustafson started
the season on the bench. But he
has now resucceeded his succes-
sor, Denny Sweeney. Gustafson,
who plays either forward or guard,
scored 26 points in the Badgers
last game against Hardin-Sim-
Rather Switch Than Fight
Joe Franklin, a 6'5" sophomore,
has been starting at forward, but
Skala thinks he may be shifted to
guard to handle Cazzie. Dave Rob-
erts is another possible starter
since he is 6'6".
Wisconsin will probably throw
every sort of defense at the Wol-
verines. In a game against Illinois,
they used a zone, aman-to-man,
and threw in a full court press
every time the Illini made a foul'

In all, there were 16 penalties
called, seven to Michigan and nine
to Tech. On the credit side for the
Wolverines was the penalty killing
done by Bob Boysen, Tom Schil-
ler, Hank Brand, and Mark
Thompson, who reversed the ex-
pected trend by getting off shots
of their own, while holding Mich-
igan Tech to a minimum of shots
on Herman.
It was a double loss for Tech,
as they lost the services of Gary

lead at 9-2. North Dakota is hold-
ing onto second at 10-4, with
Michigan the only other team still
in real contention at 6-3. The
Wolverines double loss last week-
end set the stage for the home
stretch, making it a three team,
rather than a two team race. To-
night's game should be a big
stepping stone for the winner, a
crucial setback for the loser, as
none of the three leaders meet
each other for the rest of the
year. Faceoff is set for 8 p.m. at
the Coliseum.

No Complaints
Coach Keen certainly isn't com-
plaining about Bill's choice. "Bill
is as good as anyone in the con-
ference at the 137-pound division.
Although he has lost two matches
this season, I am confident that
he is capable of defeating both
of the opponents."
The first loss on Johannesen's
record was in the Midlands tour-
ney, before the start of the regu-
lar season. His second came last
Saturday night in the final sec-
onds of a match with Minnesota's
Terry Barett.
Asked whether his surprise loss
affected the team in the disas-
trous meet with the Gophers, Bill
replied, "No, the team spirit never
fell. We just weren't ready psy-
chologically for them . . . that's
why we lost."
Winning Record
Despite the two losses, Johan-
nesen has six victories and a draw,
to his credit this season. Although
he has wrestled at both 130 and
137 pounds, he prefers the heavier
division. "The fellows at 137
pounds are usually taller than I
am and this gives me a psycho-
logically advantage."
Asked about his favorite hold,
Bill replied, "The single-leg take-
down comes more natural because
I'm short. Two of my best moves;
are the stand-up and the sit-out
from underneath."

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-President Warren
Giles of the National League said
yesterday the league has author-
ized the Braves to fulfill their ob-
ligation to Atlanta and disregard
a Wisconsin court order that in-
structed the Braves to prepare to
play in Milwaukee this season.
Following a three-hour meeting
of NL club owners, Giles said the
league intends to comply with the
order of a Georgia court which
said the Braves must fulfill their
contract with the Atlanta Stadium
"The league expects the Braves
to fulfill the 25-year lease in
Atlanta," Giles said.
The league, Giles said, believes
the Milwaukee County court has
no power to grant "the very extra-
ordinary and unprecedented in-
junctions requested by the Wis-
consin Attorney General which
would require the Braves to re-
main in Milwaukee and to be held
there as hostage until the National
League expands under a plan dic-
tated by the court.
"The National League intends
vigorously to resist the Wisconsin
action and has complete confi-
dence that it will ultimately pre-
Just 24 hours before, Judge El-
mer Roller of Milwaukee County
Circuit Court ordered the Braves
to make tentative plans to play
their 1966 home games in Mil-

waukee rather than Atlanta. He
also ordered the league to prepare
an expansion plan which would
include a Milwaukee franchise.
The state of Wisconsin, in a suit
before Judge Roller, contends that
the Braves' move to Atlanta vio-
lates the antitrust laws.
Contradictory Order
Several weeks ago, the Superior
Court of Fulton County, Ga.,
where Atlanta is located, ordered
the Braves to meet their obliga-
tions as set forth in the.contract
with the stadium authority.
In a statement, Giles said: "The
National League in November,
1964, before the Milwaukee suit
was filed, authorized the Braves to
move to Atlanta provided they ful-
fill their contract in Milwaukee
ending in 1965 and provided they
entered into a 25-year lease in
Atlanta to be approved by the
"This they did. The league like-
wise expects the Braves to comply
with the Atlanta lease as ordered
by the Georgia court.
'League Confident'
"The league is confidentthat it
will prevail in its legal position
that the members of the National
League were legally entitled in the
exercise of their experienced judg-
ment to authorize the transfer of
the Braves to Atlanta..."
Giles disagreed with Judge Roll-
er's expansion proposal, saying:
"Expansion in 1966 is not fea-
sible, and operation in 1966 or at

any time of an 11-club league
would be a disaster for everyone."
Giles had spent most of the
morning meeting with Commis-
sioner William Eckert, but denied
reports that the league had made
overtures to representatives of a
Milwaukee group seeking a fran-
