TAMPA, Fla. (MP) - The Soviet
rnion will challenge the United
tates for the Americas' Cup in
964, the president of the Yacht-
ig Federation of the USSR said
Alexi Promislov told Hugh Wahl,
baff writer of Skipper Magazine,
hat the Russians will issue a
ormal challengeat an early date.
The Australians are challenging
3r the first time this year at New-
ort, R.I., with a yacht, Gretel,
nd the British have announced
hat they will make another at-
empt afterward.
"We have not solved the sail
abric problem yet," said Promis-
)v. "We are working on it and
ope to have fabric suitable for,
ails by that time."

one good victory under their belts,
the American hockey players were
keyed up yesterday and hopeful
of beating the favored Canadian
defenders for the world amateur
ice hockey championship.
There's nothing blase about the
U.S. team even though it includes
five Canadian-born stars, three
members of the 1960 Olympic and
world champions, and five exper-
ienced puck pushers from the
Eastern Hockey League.
"We're really up for this cham-
pionship," said Ken Johannson, a
31-year-old right winger from
Rochester, Minn., via Edmonton,
Canada. "A lot of the fellows have
never played in this type of in-
ternational competition and are
determined to make good.
"We know a lot of our friends
are going to 'be watching the
game with Canada and we want to
go into that game with a chance
to win. If we do-and I feel con-
fident we will-the Canadians had
better be ready for the game of
their lives."
Johannson, who has played in
England, Scotland and Switzer-

land as well as the U.S. and Can-
ada, stars for the Rochester
(Minn) Mustangs of the U.S.
Hockey League. He is one of the
loop's leading scorers.
The crew cut veteran scored one
of the goals Thursday night in
the Americans' 14-2 rout of Nor-
way. Canada, with Tod Sloan
scoring twice, trounced Finland
8-1 in its opener.
Stanley Cupper
Sloan, now reinstated to ama-
teur status, played with the Stan-
ley Cup champion Chicago Black
Hawks last season.
Both teams were idle yesterday.
They will play their second games
Saturday night. - The Yanks will
face Sweden at Colorado Springs
while the Canadians will meet
West Germany in Denver. Swe-
den and West Germany are rated
just below the two North American
sextets in the eight-team cham-
pionship group.
"I think this team is as good
ds the one we had at Squaw
Valley (Calif.) in 1960," said Billy
Christian, of Warroad, Minn.

Every time Terry Dischinger1
scores a point against the Wolver-
ines this afternoon, he will en-
hance three personal records.
And if he does not score a point;
(he might get sick), he is assured
of a new career record average of
29 points. Additionally, he already
holds the seasonal free throw mark
and the three-year Big Ten scor-
ing total.
Dischinger's attempt at his third'
consecutive conference scoring
crown will start at 4 in Yost Field
House preceded by a skirmish be-
tween the freshman team and the1
varsity reserves.1
Rayl, Dischinger Tied 3
Jimmy, Rayl, 6'2" Indiana guard,
is tied with Dischinger in an In-
trastate battle for scoring honors.1
If Rayl should manage to beat 1
Dischinger, it will be the first time,
since 1939 that a guard has won,
the title, which is as far back as
the Big Ten record book lists the
individual scorers.
Rayl, hot on Dischinger's trail
all year, finally caught up last
week. Last Saturday Indiana took
a 88-71 decision over Purdue, and
Rayl took scoring honors over the
defending champion, 37-21.
Hoosiers Romp
And last Monday night Hoosiers
dumped Illinois 104-92 in another
of their loose defensive efforts,
and the Kokomo sharpshooter
connected for 37 while Purdue was
idle. Indiana coach Branch Mc-
Cracken pulled his star out of the
game before it was over, but he
later realized how close Ray was
to Dischinger. He quickly inserted
the little guard back into the line-
League Gets
Under Way
Major league baseball opens the
Grapefruit League season today
with a record total of 20 teams
vying for diamond glory.
In Florida, Arizona and Cali-
fornia, where snow is unknown
and hopes are unbounded, 10
games are scheduled on this first
day of inter-squad rivalry for the
1962 season.
The New York Yankees, picked
to repeat as American League
champs by practically all sports-
writers, take on the Baltimore
Orioles at Fort Lauderdale, Flor-
ida. The Birds are making their
first appearance under freshman
manager Billy Hitchcock.
The defending National League
champions, the Cincinnati Reds,
go against the Chicago White Sox
at Sarasota. The Detroit Tigers,
AL runner-ups in 1961, test the
Milwaukee Braves at Lakeland,
while the NL second-placers, Los
Angeles Dodgers, collide with the
Kansas City Athletics at Vero
Elsewhere in the Sunshine State,
the newly formed New York Mets
play the St. Louis Cardinals at
St. Petersburg, with the Philadel-
phia Phillies meeting the Min-
nesota Twins at Orlando and
Pittsburgh's Pirates facing Wash-
ington's Senators at Fort Meyers.
Over in Arizona, Tuscon features
an exhibition between the San
Francisco Giants and the Cleve-
land Indians, and the Chicago
Cubs test the Boston Red Sox at
In the lone Caifornia contest,
the infant Houston Colt 45s run
into the Los Angeles Angels at
Palm Springs to round out the

up, and Rayl managed one more
basket and a free throw.
But Rayl has the disadvantage
of bumping elbows with Ohio
State, the best defensive team in
the league, while Michigan has
only 6'7" Tom Cole to match
Dischinger's height.
And as someone (in the Indiana
athletic department) remarked,
"At best, the big inside man has
more in his favor than the little
outside shooter."
While most of the attention will
be focused on the Purdue center's
battle, there will be another rivalry
going on.
Michigan guard Bob Cantrell
will be face to face with his former
high school teammate, Phil Daw-
kins, one of the Boilermaker's reg-
ulars. Both players helped lead
their Washington High team of
East Chicago, Indiana,to a state
championship. But they won't be
guarding each other, since Daw-
kins, only 6'2", is a forward.
Cantrell and his running mate,
Jon Hall, will have to contend
with Purdue's capable guards, Mel
Garland and Tim McGinley. Gar-
land, a sophomore, is Purdue's sec-
ond leading scorer and thirteenth
in the conference with a 14.8 point
average. He is connecting on a very
creditable 48 per cent of hi field
goal attempts. Behind him in team
scoring is senior McGinley who is
averaging 12.9 points a game.
Last Appearance
This afternoon's encounter will
be the last appearance for four
Wolverineseniors,starters all
and Bob Brown, and Steve Schoen-
herr and Charlie Higgs.
Hall, captain of the cagers, is
averaging 11.2 points a game while
contributing a fine floor and de-
fensive game. A strong, hard
driver, he has turned in several
fine performances this season. His
11 points in the last eight minutes
against Northwestern sparked the
Wolverines to a 82-71 victory. His
high point effort of the season was
20 points against Detroit.
Taking over John Oosterbaan's
position between semesters, Brown
has been valuable to the Wolver-
ines. The rugged football captain
is a determined rebounder where
his 225 pounds and 6'4" frame are
no liability. Brown was also in-
strumental in that win over the
Wildcats, pulling down 16 re-
bounds to lead all players in that
Nosed Out
Schoenheri and Higgs, who
earned letters last year and saw
considerable action as regulars,
were nosed out this year for start-
ing berts by the arrival of several
newcomers to the Michigan bas-
ketball scene. The two veterans are
Coach Dave Strack's top replace-
Michigan has a chance to tie for
fifth place by winning. The Wol-
verines have only been in the first
division twice since 1949. While
Strack has been a head coach, his
teams have never won their last
game. Two years ago at Idaho he
lost to Washington and last year
he was beaten by Indiana.
Considering all the records that
will be broken this afternoon,
Strack hopes this one is included.

So, you can't remember when
the last time was that a Michi-
gan basketball team captured the
league title? Well, really wasn't
so long ago, the 1947-48, season.
That's the year Michigan be-
came the first school since 1931,
when Purdue turned the trick, to
capture both the Big Nine foot-
ball and basketball championships.
(Michigan State hadn't been ac-
cepted into the league yet.)
Badgers Defended
Wisconsin was the defending
basketball champion, but the pre-
season forecast by the Associated
Press didn't favor the Badgers to
repeat their performance, No, the
two teams that were were pre-
season selections were Minnesota
and Michigan.
Coach Ozzie Cowles had just ar-
rived that year to pilot the Wol-
verines, fifth place finishers the
previous year. Cowles had coach-
ed Dartmouth College to six Ivy
League crowns before Michigan
was able to lure him away.
'Cowles' starting lineup consist-
ed of some fine athletes, especially
one whom most Michigan students
still recognize today. His name
is Pete Elliott, who now is Illi-
nois' football mentor and the
brother of the Wolverines' grid
coach, "Bump." The younger El-
liott was the starting guard and
at the end of the season he was

placed on the Associated Press'
honorable mention All-American
basketball squad.
Mack Suprunowicz played in
one of the worward spots and led
all Michigan scorers that year with
a relatively modest 145 point to-
Cowles' philosophy was not to
outscore his opponents per se, but
to set up such a tough defenseJ
that the other team couldn't score.
He was quite successful in this
as Michigan was claimed the best
defensive team in the country.

Received NCAA Bid
The Wolverines had ended the
season with a 10-2 conference rec-
ord and immediately received an
invitation to the NCAA Tourna-
ment at Madison Square Garden.
Here the Michigan cagers ran
into a tough Holy Cross team and
suffered a humiliating defeat, 63-+

the efforts of their all-American+
guard Bob Cousy who scored 23
Yes, it really wasn't so long ago.
