Drop Opening Tilts
Vanderbilt's Second Half Decides;
Tidwell 's 18 Points Lead Michigan

Special to The Daily
NASHVILLE-A tough Vander-
bilt cage squad took advantage
of Michigan opening game jitters
and costly errors last night as it
drove to a 58-43 victory over the
Wolverines in the first game of
the season for both teams.
With 6'7" Bill Depp and, hot-
shooting forward Ray Clark pav-
ing the, way, the Commodores
pulled away in the last seven min-.
utes & play for the hard-fought
victory.
Depp scored 19 points and con-
trolled both backboards as he
gathered in most of his team's
rebounds, while Clark, a for-
ward, was the game's leading scor-
er, contributing 23 points on nine
field goals and five free throws.
Captain John Tidwell paced the
Wolverine scorers with 18 points.
Good Shooting
The Wolverines hit on 16 of 27
shots from the floor in the first
half for a robust 44 per cent, but
11 errors offset the good shoot-
ing to give the Commodores a 29-
25 edge at intermission.
Michigan, using a slow-break-
ing, pattern type of offense under
new head coach Dave Strack, hit

on just 25 peg' cent of their sec-
ond half shots, scoring only 18
markers in the final 20 minutes
of play.
The Michigan defense, which,
according to Strack will be a
major factor in determining the
success of this year's quintet, did
a creditable job last night in hold-
ing Vanderbilt to 58 points. The
Commodores have been rated as
top contenders in the tough
Southeastern Conference th-i s
year.
Turning Point
The turning point in the game
came with seven minutes left to
play in the second half. Behind by
ten points, the Wolverines went
into a full court prss. The press
was ineffective, however, as' the
Commodores quickly widened the
gap to 15 points over the excited
Wolverin'es and, held onto that{
lead throughout the rest of the
contest.
"We were beaten soundly, fair
and square by a good team,"
Strack stated after the game.
"However, errors, both offensive-
ly and defensively, cost us the
game. When our offensive. pattern
was working we were OK, but too
much of the time it either wasn't
wrking or wasn't being used at
all."
Encouraging Performance
Strack added that the perform-
ance of some of the players was
very encouraging and, that the
team would play better games.1

"We didn't function too well to-
night," but we'll be all right. Our
rebounding showed definite signs
of strength, and, it will improve.
Competition is what we need to
work out .the little mistakes."
The Wolverines move over to
Knoxville tonight where they will
meet another southern power-
house, the Tennessee Volunteers.
Lakers Win
In fNBA _tit
By The Associated Press
BOSTON-Los Angeles rookie
Jerry West fired two baskets in
the final 30 seconds to rally the
Lakers for a 120-117 National
.Basketball Association victory
over the Boston Celtics last night.
Boston took the lead for th4
first time with three minutes to
play but Elgin Baylor, Rod Hund-
ley and Frank Selvy never let
the Celts get far in front.
Selvy's two free throws put the
Lakqrs in front, 116-115, but Bob
Cousy came right back with a 25
foot one hander for the' home
team's last points.

DEFENDING BIG TEN CHAMPS:
Four ReturningTitlists Lead Wrestlers

1960, will have some experienced
men to fall back on.
Sarong in Middle Weights
Kritz Kellerman, who won the
137-lb. championship, will be back,
as will Jim Blaker, the 147-lb.
champ. At 157, Dick Fronczak,
who finished fourth in the Con-
ference, will not be available be-
cause of his scholastic load in
Dental School. The return of Don
Corriere should more than offset
this loss, however, since Don won
the championship at that level in
1959 but had dropped out of school
for a year.
Dennis Fitzgerald will be back in
action at 167-lbs. Fitz was un-"
beaten and untied last year in
dual meets, and swept through
the Big Ten championships in high
style. Karl Fink, a strong junior,
who was 9-0-1 in dual meets last
year, will be available at 177-lbs.
Curtis 191-lb. Winner
Guy Curtis won the unofficial
191-lb. title last year, and will
wrestle at either that weight,
which is now official, or in the
heavyweight class. If he moves

up to the latter division, the 191-
lb. duty will probably be shared by
two men from Port Huron, Jack
Barden and Ted Ludwig.

Willard Root, who wrestled at
115-ibs. last year, will most likely
move up to 123-lbs., with Nick
Armelagos of Detroit moving into
the lighter weight. There is no
standout for the 130-lb. slot.
Losses Heavy.
Losses to the team include ex-
Captain Mike Hoyles at 123-lbs.
and Fred Olm at heavyweight
through graduation, Ambi Wil-
banks, the 130-lb. champion, be-
cause of injuries, and Fronczak.
The lack of outstanding pro-
spects at the lower weight divi-
sions will be a serious handicap
when the Wolverines attempt to
match their brilliant performances
of last season. Iowa, second to
the Wolverines last year, will be
a threat, as will Michigan State,
Minnesota, and a much improved
Illinois team.
Michigan will open its schedule
at Lafayette, Dec. 10, against the
always troublesome Purdue Boiler-
makers. The first home meet is
against Penn State, Dec. 16, one
of the early favorites for the NCAA'
crown.

D R. FROOD'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: "Life ain't all beer and skittles," as the saying goes
-but if enough students got together, maybe skittles could make a big comeback.

Dear Dr. Frood: I don't speak from personal experience, but I
understand all the men in this college are wolves. What do you
think a respectable girl like me-with a good old-fashioned up-
bringing-should do about this situation?
Strait Laced
DEAR STRAIT: Drop your handkerchief.
Dear Dr. Frood: When i entered college as a freshman this fall, my
father gave me a very large sum of money to cover room, board,
tuition, books and all other expenses for four full years of college.
Because of an unfortunate series of poker games, however, the
money is now completely gone. How would you suggest I handle
this situation?
Ten High
DEAR TEN: I feel confident that your father will give you another
chance if you go up to him like a man, tell him you are sorry, adnit
your mistake and promise him that your luck will change.

BLACKSTONE
TORT
Pride of the law school,
Blackstone has never lost a
moot trial. But there's noth-
ing moot about his prefer
ences in dress. He finds that
when he's comfortable, he
can tra a witness and sway
a jury like Clarence Darrow.
So he always wears Jockey
brand briefs while preparing
his briefs. Exclusive Jockey
tailoring gives him a bonus
of comfort he gets in no other
underwear. Fine Jockey
combed cotton is more ab.
sorbent,smootherflttingtoo.
Tolookyourbest, feel your
best, take a tip from Tort.
Always insist on Jockey
brand briefs, $1.25. Your

Dear Dr. Frood: I just don't understand the
men in this college. Not one of them has
ever asked me for a date. I am intelligent
and easy to get along with. Enclosed is my
snapshot. What do you think is wrong?
Left Out
DEAR LEFT: After considering this problem
from every angle, I can only conclude that
you have enormous feet.

Dear Dr. Frood: Do you think it is safe for
a girl to walk home alone from a college
dance?

Dear Dr. Frood: According to my figures
over ninety-five per cent of the students
here are below average. What is wrong?
Math Major
DEAR MATH: You are obviously going to a
below-average college.
