To Play Twice
On Road Trip
Meet Gophers On Saturday
And Chicago Maroons
On Way Home
Big Ten basketball fades into the
athletic background as final examina-
tions become prevalent on the dif-
ferent Conference campuses. This
week only five league games will be
played in the Mid-West. The play-
ers on the Purdue and Illinois quin-
tets will be given a brief rest as they
battle eligibility in the class room.
Purdue and Indiana, still unde-
feated, continue to lead the Big Ten
Conference tied for first place.
Neither team will see action this
Saturday. Last Saturday night In-
diana met Minnesota at the Gopher
city. The Hoosiers were glad to eke
out a 33 to 31 victory and were com-
pelled to employ a stalling game
during the last three minutes to stave
off possible defeat. Frequent fouls
by the Indian team afforded the Min-
nesota five many free throws which
kept them within scoring distance.
Monday night the Gophers came
back to upset the veteran Northwest-
ern squad at Minneapolis. This was
the Gopher's first Western Conference
victory. Until this time the Wildcat
quintet had repressed many whirl-
wind attacks to win all, but one game.
The Gopher offense centered about
George Roscoe of football fame who
accounted for 13 points. The second
half was marked by each team mak-
ing sallies into their opponent's ter-
ritory which usually resulted for Min-
nesota in spectacular one-handed
basket shots by Roscoe.
Northwestern on the previous Sat-
urday overwhelmingly defeated Illi-
nois to place them in fifth place.
The Wildcat attack paced by Capt.
Vance, Tug Blume and Babe Bender
out-shot and out-played the Illini to
score 40 points.
This coming Saturaay Northwest-
ern will travel to the "Windy City"
to oppose Chicago. If the trio men-
tioned above will reach their old
time scoring pace and with the addi-
tion of Trenkle's ability, the Chicago
entrants are slated for another de-
feat. However, Chicago with its
leading Conference basket ringer,
Haarlow, is always a dangerous threat,
After the Wolverine-Chicago battle
Haarlow's total reached 55 points for
four games. The Ohio State star,
Whitlinger, dropped to second place
being three points behind the leader.
Hoosiers Are Strong
On Monday night Wisconsin held
the victorious Hoosier team to a score
of 26 to 24. During the first twenty
minutes Indiana put the Badgers on
the defensive and the half ended
with the score 15 to 9. In the sec-
ond period the Badgers came onto
the floor fired by a new spirit to
tally 15 points. Powell was high
scorer for the Wisconsin outfit, ac-
counting for three field goals and a
free throw. This Saturday Wiscon-
sin will be inactive as the college
prepares for examinations.
Michigan will entrain for Minnea-
polis for a weekend game with the
Gophers. Michigan subdued Iowa 31
to 27 in an overtime match Monday
evening. Several Wolverines seemed
unable to find the basket when they

fifty years into the nebulous future -
into the year 1986. We were sitting
in vaguely familiar surroundings, and
the talk wiped away the dust of time.

the paper aside with a resigned ges-

answered Delano Hattoff, basketball

broke all over again when Coach
Mat Hunter of the Baseball team
thought it time to air his grievences.
"Here I've got a swell oppor-

up a few to the clubs down there

To Meet State
Spartans Should Be Easy
For National Champions;
Drill For 'Big Boys'
Intending to take Michigan StateZ
in stride Friday night at East Lans-
ing, Coach Matt Mann yesterday set
his Varsity swimming team to work
earnestly in preparation for next
semester's campaign toward the de-
fense of Michigan's National and Big
"The squad is really going to work
from now on,'' Coach Mann said yes-
terday as he put his championship
proteges through a strenuous drill,
'but it's to prepare for the big boys'
next semester. Michigan State and I
then Purdue and Indiana betweenI
semesters will not cause us very much!
Don't Expect Many
Coach Mann is conceding the Spar-
tans 25 points, the same number In-
diana chalked up, but from the State
camp comes word that Coach R. B.
Daubert is not expecting anything
better than a bare minimum. Since
there will be only one Michigan entry
in the 220, 440 and back-stroke, the
Spartan coach's prediction would give
his team 23 counters as conipared
to 61 for the Wolverines.
State visited the Intramural pool
last January and returned home on
the wrong end of a 62-22 score.
Practically Same Lineup
With but one exception the Wol-
verines will present the same lineup
Friday that swamped Indiana. Der
Johnston, recovered from a split toe,
will perform with Capt. Frank
Fehsenfeld in the diving event, re-
placing Ned Diefendorf. In last
year's encounter with the Spartans,
Johnston nosed out Fehsenfeld by
less than three points.
Frank Barnard will be the single
Michigan swimmer in the 220 and
440-yard free-style events, while Bob
Mowerson will perform alone in the
back-stroke. Jack Kasley and Ed
VanderVelde will swim the breast-
stroke as usual.
Michigan's sprinters, Paul Keeler,
Mark McCarty, Ed Drew and Dick
Blake, can expect some trouble from
Fred Ziegel, one of the backfield men
on State's powerhouse eleven last fall,
but should be able to take the first
two places in both 50 and 100-yard

Hard For State
By shifting Frank Bissell, star 165-
pounder, to the vacated 155-pound
post left vacant by Louis Mascuruskus
who will probably be out for the
rest of the season, Coach Cliff Keen
hopes to strengthen the Varsity wres-
tling team's chances of defeating
Michigan State at 7:30 p.m. this Sat-
urday at the Yost Field House.
The 155-pound division isn't new
to Bissell since the tough football
guard wrestledin this rank all last
year. Having made this decision,
Coach Keen has yet to determine who
will grapple in the 126- and 165-
May Shift Lowell
Keen may start Bill Lowell at 165-
pounds, instead of his regular 175-
pound assignment, and send Roger
Price at the latter division. However,
this plan was somewhat wrecked at
yesterday's drill when Lowell pinned
Rice in a regulation bout. Arnold
Gross is still a possibility at the 165-
In an attempt to solve the 126-
pound situation, Coach Keen had Ed
Slocum and Dan Taylor compete in
a ten minute match but the battle
didn't help very much when both
boys failed to exhibit any wrestling
talent. The other weights will prob-
ably line up in this fashion; 118-
