Irish Trounce
Detroit, 36-18
For 20th Win
DETROIT. March 12.--(P)-Notre
Dame's high powered basketball team
defeated University of Detroit 36 to
18 tonight to close its season with a
record of 20 victories in 23 starts.
Johnny Moir, sharp-shooting for-
ward, scored 18 of Notre Dame's
points to run his total to 550 points
in two seasons, the best individual
record ever compiled in Notre Dame
court history.
The Irish, their fast-breaking of-
fense clicking smoothly, quickly ran
the score to 15 to 4. Detroit's Titans
bagged only two field goals in the
first half. The score then stood 17
to 6.
Notre Dame went on from there
in the second half, scoring even eas-
ier as the Titans, handicapped by
lack of reserves, were worn down.
The defeat was the first this sea-
son for the Titans on their home
floor, but it was the tenth consecu-
tive time they had bowed to Notre

ference wrestling championships is
Capt. Frank Bissell, senior 155
pounder. Frank advanced to the
semi-finals of the Big Ten meet

and final heat and after breaking
on top led the field of eight all the
way to win in 1:58.3. This was the
best; time made in the event tonight.
With Beetham, Trutt, Graves, Sex,
ton, Blickle and Davidson left to
battle it out in the 880 finals to-
morrow the Conference record of
1:53,9 does not appear in danger.
Fred Teufel of Iowa was second to
Birleson in winners' time, being
clocked in :50.6 for the quarter in the
first heat. Hal Crow of Chicago
qualified by finishing second in Teu-
fel's heat. Birleson is favored to
win the event with Steve Mason be-
ing given a good chance to beat out
Ensley for fifth. Teufel, Keitel and
Hal Crow are expected to finish in
that order behind Birleson.
The preliminaries in the 60-yard
dash and high hurdles will be held
Saturday afternoon and all finals
ar scheduled for tomorrow night
With Indiana qualifying but one man
in the middle distance runs the Hoos-
ier threat has been definitely weak-
ened and Wisconsin now ranks as
the main obstacle in Michigan's path
to another title.
Little's Eagle Three
Evens p Tourney
MIAMI, Fla., March 12.-(P)-A
25-foot putt by Lawson Little for an
eagle three on the 36th hole today
gave Little and Tony Manero a tie
with Johnny Revolta, of Evanston,
Ill., and Henry Picard of Hershey,
Pa., in the International Four-Ball-
Golf Tournament, sending the four
into an 18-hole playoff tomorrow.
Picard and Revolta, seeking their
third successive victory in the rich
tournament, will play Little, former
British and American Amateur
champion from San Francisco, and
Manero, for the top prize of $2,000.
The runnersup will receive $500 each,
while all four will share in the gal-
lery receipts.
Tomorrow's playoff will be the
fourth in the event's 14-year history.
Wings' Cup Hopes Dim
As Aurie Breaks Ankle
DETROIT, March 12. --(/P)- A
fractured ankle removed Larry Aurie,
the National Hockey League's leading
scorer, to the sidelines tonight.
The champion Detroit Red Wings,
shorn of their best offensive weapon,
have ten days in which to revamp
their attack before hockey's "World
Series," the league championship and
Stanley Cup playoffs, open here
March 23.

Aurie, 146-pound aggressive right
wing, was the principal scoring threat
of the first Detroit line, teaming
with Marty Barry and Herbie Lewis.

scrap, surprising .everyone including
his opponent, and fought on even1
terms throughout the greater portion
of the bout. Traicoff's early advan-
tage, however, won him the nod with'
a time margin of 1:17.
Abe Lincoln gave another exhibi-
tion of. his amazing courage in stick-
ing to the finish against Minnesota's
undefeated Clifton Gustafson. The
husky Gopher, outweighing Lincoln
by 25 pounds, had an easy time of it,
and only Jim's ability to squirm out
of pin holds saved him; the time ad-
vantage was 8:27.
Hyde Whips McConnell
In a second bout at 155 pounds
Sam Hyde of Indiana whipped Duane
McConnell of Minnesota in a slow
overtime match.
Two captains, 'Minnesota's John
Whittaker and Ohio State's Bob
Lightburn, clashed in a 175 pound
prelim, the Gopher representative
garnering one point for his team by
pinning his Ohio opponent with a
keylock in 9:38.
Frankie Battaglia, Illinois' sopho-
more star, whipped Chicago's foot-
ball captain, Sam Whiteside, easily
in the first heavyweight perlim.
Whitesinde received a bad lump on
the head in a mixup near the edge of
the mat, but Battaglia. definitely
showed his superiority throughout.
N. U. Captain Loses
Captain DeWitt Gibson, Northwes-
tern's gargantuan mat captain and
grid star, was the victim' of the sec-
ond fall of the evening in the final
heavyweight preliminary. His oppon-
ent, Wilbur Nead of Iowa, although
spotting him 33 pounds, slapped a half
nelson and a stretcher on Gibson's
big extremeties in 6:32 and ended
the bout in a very decisive manner.
In the semi-finals this afternoon,
Michigan matmen have received
much the tough end of the draw. Paul
Cameron meets the favorite in his
division, Al Sapora of Illinois, while
Earl Thomas will battle it out with
Indiana's Tom Bryce, whom Thomas
whipped in a dual encounter this
Bissell Meets Cramer
Other bouts will find Captain Bis-
sell and Frank Cramer of Ohio State
renewing acquaintanceship at 155
pounds. Bissell won a dual meet bat-
tle in an overtime. Harold Nichols
clashes with the defending champion
Bob Finwall of Chicago at 145
pounds, and Harland Danner meets
his main threat, Stan Hanson of
Minnesota at 165 pounds.
The heavyweight division is un-
doubtedly the most interesting. Bob
Haak, of Indiana, the favorite, re-
ceived a bye yesterday, but he will
-have plenty of competition from Bat-
taglia, Gustafson, and Nead, whose
surprise fall win makes him the- dark
horse of the division.
The band will entertain at the fin-
als tomorrow night. Part of the meet
will be broadcast over WJBK and the
Michigan Radio Network.

The Intramural Building resounds
to cries of "hike!" and "hep!" Down
in one of the handball rooms a group
are battering away at a blocking
dummy. Over in another corner
backfield Coach Wally Weber is giv-
ing some blocking-backs some point-
ers on how to "fix" some Big Ten end.
Passes are flicking back and forth
across the gym floor.
Kipke Gives Pointers
Another squad is having line block-
ing practice. Coach Kipke, who drifts
aroundufrom onegroup to another,
comes up. He tells one man to get
down lower, another to stop "point-
ing" that he is giving the play away.
Coach Kipke pleads to a gridder to
hit low. The next attempt shows
little improvement. More coaching
-and then Kipke sighs contentedly,
"That's it!"
Coach Kipke has about seventy
men working out now and expects
many more next week. The time is
spent mostly on conditioning exer-
cises with the coaches walking around
spotting "bad form" and trying to
eliminate it.
Anderson Arrives Monday
Heartley "Hunk" Anderson, Mich-
igan's new line coach, will arrive here
next Monday.: If the weather per-
nits the team will go outdoors at
that time. If the weather is bad,
practice will take place at Yost Field
The team will start scrimmage in
about two weeks. Kipke has not yet
given out any plays. This, however,
will be done in the next couple of

MADISON, Wis#, March 12.-(IP)-
University of Wisconsin boxers kept
their perfect home match record in-
tact tonight by defeating the Louis-
iana State University team, 51/2 to
21, before 9,000 persons.
Fred O'Banion, Louisiana State's
Southgeastern titleholder at 145
pounds, dropped Herman Ponty for
a four count in the first round and
then fought on to win.


Michigan closes one of its mosts
successful hockey seasons in the Coli-
seum tonight against the hard-skat-
ing Chatham Maroons, conquerors of
the Lowrey men in an earlier en-E
counter, 7 to 4.-
The game marks the final per- ;
formance in Varsity regalia of Capt.
Vic Heyliger, generally recognized as'
one of collegiate hockey's ablest cen-
ters, and Jack Merrill, his second-
line understudy who may be inactive
due to an injury sustained against
Minnesota two weeks ago.
#Opponents Have Edge
The Chatham sextet, a member of
the Michigan-Ontario hockey league,,
has beaten the Wolverines twice in
the past two years. The Varsity is
determined to. dissipate the lingering
bugaboo and trip up the visitors.
An added feature of the match will
be the presence again of Lou Sad-
lier, husky Maroon captain and de-
fenseman, who is best remembered as
the gent who precipitated a small
riot with Heyliger the last time he
played here. The scramble netted
the big Canadian an ungentle poke
in the whiskers, and the issue is not
likely to be forgotten in tonight's
Flanking Sadlier at the other de-
fense post is George Stoddart, who
doesn't push around too easily either,
