cerned largely with Gee's perform-
ance in the center jump. At the
Jefferson High School gym in the
first game with the Riveters it was
Seward's domination of the tip-off
that was largely responsible for the
Wolverines defeat. Monday night
Gee never lost the jump.
Inspects Campus
Incidentally Seward told us that
he has good reason for losing those
tips. It seems that he and Mangas,
substitute guard, spent four hours
Monday morning inspecting the
Michigan campus and he didn't have
any spring left in his legs at game-

Welcome To Michigan, Hunk...
THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT as to the sagacity of the signing of "Hunk"
Anderson as football line coach . . . No less an authority than the late
Knute Rockne of Notre Dame called Anderson the greatest assistant coach
in the country . . . And "Rock" saw a lot of coaches in his time . . . The
applause "Hunk" received when he was introduced at the Michigan-Purdue
basketball game Monday night is significant of the high esteem in which
he is held among the student body . . . And "Hunk" really appreciated it ...'
Whalebone and steel, that's Hunk.
The question has been asked whether or not the gigning of Anderson
would result in some sort of a blending of the Michigan and Notre Dame
systems.. . Hunk said yesterday in this regard: "I'm not here to tinker with
the Michigan system" . . . "That isn't my business" . . . "I'm a line coach
and the strategy is up to Kipke" . . . Anderson admitted he "might change
Michigan's line play a little bit" ... Having watched Charlie Bachman work
with his Michigan State line, I am convinced Notre Dame line play is O.K.
Why Not Meet Notre Dame? ? ?
A N EDITORIAL on page four of this issue of The Daily deals with the
possibilities of a Michigan-Notre Dame game. There is a great deal
of logic in it. Fred DeLano was the boy, who started the agitation last winter
for a renewal of athletic relations between the two schools. Rumor has it that
Michigan is now state basketball champion . . . Oh, boy . . . Coach Ben Van
Alstyne of Michigan State said before the game Monday night that
the eventual winner would be the team that relaxed first . .. Michigan re-
laxed first . . . Purdue never relaxed.
Coach Matt Mann and his title-bound swimmers had a huge scare thrown
into them at Columbus last Saturday . . . Ohio State really had a team
of no mean proportions . . . The Buckeyes come to the Intramural Pool a
week from tonight ... Co-Captains Jack Kasley and Frank Barnard con-
curred yesterday in saying that it would be a different story at that time ...
Tonight and Friday at Minneapolis are the big nights of the year for the
hockey team ... A Big Ten championship hangs in the balance.

As things stand now both Larry

and lost a game.
The Gophers, behind the great net

With Courtright Tonight
All prospective candidates for
the varsity and freshman golf
squads have been asked by Coach
Ray Courtright to attend a very
important meeting to be held at 8
p.m. today in the Union.
Everyone interested in trying
out for either of the two squads is
urged to be there.
Matters to be discussed include
eligibility, schedule and early
practice plans.

Ohio State's track team, victor
over Indiana's powerful thinclads
Monday night, will give Coach Chuck
Hoyt's Wolverines their first real
competition of the season when they
clash Saturday in Yost Field House.
Buckeye athletes broke three In-
diana field house records in pacing
their mates to a 46-40 win, these
being in the high jump, the mile
relay and in the quarter mile. Dave,
Albritton and Wendel Walker, both
of Ohio, cleared the bar in the high
jump at 6 feet 6 inches and Chuck
Beetham turned in a :49.8 quarter.
The relay time was 3:23.6.
Set Record Here
Albritton gained fame as an Olym-
pic high jumper last summer and in
the trials at Randall's Island tied
the world's record in the event, 6 feet

!In Slow -Meet
Speicher Is Only Varsity
Man On Regular Spot;
Reserves Used
Michigan's varsity wrestlers com-
memorated Washington's Birthday in
a very uneventful fashion Monday, as
they sat by and watched their second
stringers whi Ohio University's Bob-
cats, 17-11. at the Yost Field House.
Johnny Speicher was the only var-
sity man to work in his regular spot,
and Johnny had a real circus in
defeating Paul Carpenter of Ohio.
The time advantage was 8:21, with
Johnny putting so many holds on
Carpenter that it resemebled an in-
structive exhibition rather than a
Cameron Pins Foe
Ed Kellman of Michigan defeated.
Gene Porozynski of Ohio in a slow
bout at 126-pounds. Kellman's early
advantage gave him the nod. Paul
Cameron, wrestling at 135 pounds
instead of his usual 126, pinned
George Schultz of Ohio with an arm-
lock and body scissors in 8:06.
Rex Lardner, engaging in his first
competition for Michigan, lost to
Paul DeTuerk at 145-pounds in a
slow match. Harold Nichols had an
easy time with Ed Bijak of Ohio at
155-pounds, mounting up an impres-
sive time advantage of 7:45.
Lincoln Downed
Jim "Abe" Lincoln. ran into 215
pounds of Bobcat beef in the heavy-
weight division in the person of
Henry Adamcyk. Adamcyk, strange-
ly resembling Tor of Popeye fame,
used his weight and strength to ad-
vantage to win in 2:45.
The varsity meets their supreme
dual meet test of the year, Monday,
March 1, tangling with Indiana's
Hoosiers at the Field House. The re-
sult will be an accurate indicator
of the comparative set-up of both
teams preceding the Big Ten meet
here March 12 and 13.

9 3-4 inches, only seconds after Cor-
nelius Johnson had jumped that high
for the first time in history of man.
Beetham, until Saturday, owned
the Yost Field House record in the
440 at :50.3 seconds and his race
Monday proved that he is at the
peak of his career. Stan Birleson,
Michigan's ace quarter-miler who
missed the world record in the quar-
ter last week by three tenths of a
second, will have all the competition
he might ever ask for when he faces
the Buckeye flyer Saturday and it
may be that the world indoor mark
of :48.9, set by Ray Ellinwood of
Chicago in last year's Conference
meet, will be in danger.
Ohio Has Greatest, Too $
By virtue of their win over In-
diana the Buckeyes rank as the
greatest' threat to Michigan's Big
Ten title and Coach Hoyt, after a
close study of the summaries of the
Ohio-Indiana meet, stated yester-
day, "This is apparently the greatest,
track team Ohio State has ever had.
The meet Saturday should be a nip
and tuck battle all the way with the
outcome uncertain until the last
event is ovet."
Ohio's only apparent weakness lies
in the distance runs, the mile and
two mile, and Indiana scored slams
i~n both events with the great Don,
Lash leadingthe way. Lash's time in
the mile was 4:13.9.
Buckeyes Are Well Balanced
The Buckeyes took six firsts againstf
the Hoosiers, these in the mile relay,
the quarter and high jump as already
mentioned, the high hurdles, the
half mile which Beetham won in
1:56.6 and the pole vault. The latter
event was won by "Jumping Joe" Wil-
liams, shifty Ohio halfback, at 12
feet 6 inches.
A well-balanced team, the Buck-
eyes appear able tio force the Wolver-
ines, fresh from a 67-28 triumph over;
Michigan State, to the limit. A de-
cisive win would definitely stamp
Michigan as the finest team in the
Western Conference but few observers
are going out on the limb by pre-
dicting such a victory.
All-Campus Mermen
Will Meet March 10
March 9 marks the final date for
entries in the All-Campus swimming
meet, which will be held in the In-
tramural Pool on Wednesday, March
10 at 7:30 p.m.
Individuals wishing to enter this
meet are advised by Intramural of-
ficials to sign up immediately on the
bulletin board in the I-M foyer.
Entrants may participate in the
diving event, along with any two of
the following: 50-yard free style, 50-
yard backstroke, 50-yard breast-
stroke, 100-yard free style, 100-yard
backstroke, 100-yard breast stroke,
220-yard free style, and 75-yard med-
An intramural certificate will be
awarded the high point man of the
meet, and ribbons will be given to
the winner and runner-up of each

I-M Runners
Will Hold Relay
Trials Tonight
Fraternity and independent half-
mile relay teams go into action to-
night from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the
Field House track. The four-man
teams will be vieing for the privilege
of competing against one another
during the Pittsburgh-Varsity meet
here, March 5.
Four teams of each fraternity and
independent groups which own the
best time at the end of the relays
tonight will be selected by intramural
officials to compete against one an-
other in the finals.
Each team is composed of a quar-
tet of runners, each doing 220 in the
relay. Last year, in the fraternity di-
vision, Phi Kappa Psi was the win-
ning organization.
Illinois Cagers Lead
' In Conference Race
By One-Half Game
Only one-half game separates the
Big Ten leading Illinois basketball
team from second place Michigan and
Minnesota. Illinois grabbed the top
position by virture of their decisive
victory over Wisconsin 48-31 Monday
night and because Michigan dropped
Purdue to fourth place.
Michigan's victory lowered Purdue
after the Boilermakers had beaten
Minnesota leaving Illinois in the lead
with their half game only because the
M~ini had played one more game
than either Minnesota or Michigan.
Recovering from their defeat Min-
nesota beat Iowa 44-25 to get back
into the race. The same evening
Ohio State's title hopes went sim-
mering as Northwestern took a 44 to
29 decision.
The few remaining games on the

ermaker defense and offense.I
Michigan Has Accuracy.
Number six takes into considera-
tion that ball-hawking -of all six
Michigan players and particularily
Townsend and Patanelli. Those two
were following the ball and scooping
it up whenever the opportunity arose
in a manner that made it clear that
they were intent on beating their
Hoosier brethren. They intercepted
passes, picked up rolling balls, and
watched the rebounds in such a man-
ner that Michigan had the ball two-
thirds of the time.
Seventh is Michigan's accuracy,
eighth the fact that Purdue was play-
ing its third crucial game in eight
days, and ninth the demoralizing ef-
fect of the 8 to 8 halftime score on
the Riveters.
Crowd Waits
And we must not forget also that
for the second time in as many games
that "a Young man's fancy did not
turn to basketball." It's safe to say
that about 9,000 of the 9,000 who
saw that game were waiting to see
Young, the ponference's leading scor-
er, put on his act.
When he made but two free throws
at the end of the first half most folksj
were still waiting expectantly. And
it's also probably safe to say that
when in the second half Young
finally got a bucket on a fast break
with a typical one-handed shot from
the right side many a heart skipped
a. beat and many a tongue was in-
fluential in saying "Well here they
Is High Pointer
But the game ended with Young
making only five points for the doubt-
ful honor of being
Purdue's high-point
man. Thomas and
Barclay did a beau-
tiful job of guarding
on the ill-humored
Boilermaker. He did
not have an "off"
night. The point is
that he never got
open for a shot. And
not being superhu-
man h e couldn't
DOWNEY Against Minnesota
Purdue' Saturday night
Young made only seven points so in
the last two games he scored but 12
For Michigan Townsend was high-
point man with nine points, two field
goals and five free throws, closely
followed by Gee with four baskets.
Statistics Favor Michigan
The statistics show that Michigan
attempted 12 longs and made one, 13
shots and made two in the first half
while it hit two out of eight longs and
seven out of 11 shorts in the second.
Purdue made only one long in nine
attempts and one short out of 14 in
the first period and missed all 10 long
shots and connected but three times
in 11 short shots in the second half.
Most pointed information discov-
ered in the Wolverine locker room
after the game was that Dick Long,
substitute guard, had lost three

Jewell Young had his lead cut from
46 to 37 points, Bob Etnire was
dropped from the first ten and John-
ny Gee was added, and Earl Combes
became the second man to pass the
century mark. Those are the main
results of the nine games played
between Conference teams this week-
end as far as the high scoring race
is concerned.
Young, who until this week had
averaged over sixteen points pea'
game, scored a total of only eleven
points in Purdue's encounters with
Minnesota and Michigan. He must
score 27 more points in the Boiler-
maker's two remaining games in
order to break the present Big Tenl
record of 167.I
Combes Holds Second1
Earl Combes, Illinois' stellar for-
ward continued to hold second place
by adding 21 points to his total over
the weekend making it 104. The
other Illinois man in the first ten,
Louis Boudreau, continued in last
place with 74.
Ken Gunning, Mike McMichael,
and Jake Townsend followed the
leaders to continue holding the third,
fourth, and fifth positions earned
last week. Michigan's "Houdini of
the Hardwoods" kept his fourth place
by adding 13 points to his total in
two games. McMichael and Gunning
traded places.
Gee Returns
Johnny Gee came back into. the
ranks of high scorer after an absence
of 'a couple of weeks. He climbed'
Will They Let Up Now?

from twelfth place last week to his
present position of ninth.
Minnesota's sophomore stars,
George Addington and John Kundla,
with Iowa's Ben Stephens, finish the
list of high men. Stephens climbed
from ninth to sixth, Addington re-
mained at seventh, and Kundla
dropped from sixth to eighth.

Natators Find
Ohio State Is
Stiff Opponent
Matt Mann's varsity crew found
out that it wasn't the only team in
the Big Ten that has a formidable
array of swimming talent this sea-
son. In Columbus last Saturday Ohio
State's Buckeye swimmers gave defi-
nite proof that they are also a team to
beat in the conference.
In winning the meet 45-39, the var-
sity was pressed to better two records.
In addition the Bucks did their share
of 'cracking in the record-breaking
The Wolverines crossed the line inf
the 400-yard relay with a time of
3:33.4 to clip a second off the existing
Intercollegiate record held by Yale.
Tom Haynie, swimming the 220-
yard free-style event for Michigan
came in ahead of Woodford of the
Buckeyes with a time of 2:14.
The Buckeyes were able to take
only three first places while Michi-
gan took six firsts but was able to
gain only three second places and
two thirds.
Ben Grady flashed his usual bril-
liant form from the springboard.

-a title that Michigan relinquished'
last season after winning it in 1934-
Coach Edie Lowrey was confident1
as he and the team stepped on the
Twilight Limited yesterday. The
Wolverines are in better shape than
they have been all season, and the
day of rest between tonight's and
Friday's game will benefit them more
than it will the Norsemen who are
much better fortified with reserve
Regular Front Line T'o Start
A disadvantage not to be over-
looked, however is the size of the
Minneapolis rink. The Arena there
is almost twice as big as the Coliseum,
and the Gophers with their three
forward lines and change of defense
can much better make use of their
power on the larger sheet.
Lowrey plans to start his front
line of Heyliger, James and Fabello
against the Gophers first string trio
made up of Captain Ray Bjorck, Ed
Arnold and Ridgeway Baker.
Michigan's second line of Jack'
Merrill, George Cooke, and Ed Chase
will play part of the time against
Minnesota's Wally Taft, Jimmy Carl-
son, and Joe Schwab, and part of the
time against a third brown shirted
trio on which skate Ray Wallace,
Kenney Anderson and Bob Randall.
Are Outnumbered
While Minnesota outnumbers
Michigan 3-2 on the forward propo-
sition, the odds are even greater on
defense where Bob Simpson and Bert
Smith must give and take it for 60
minutes while for the Norsemen Bob
Carlson, Dick Kroll, Bill Breseson,
and Bob Ganley can take turns at the
blue lines.
The Gophers will have their All-
American goalie, Bud Wilkinson in
the nets again, and with the memory
of those eight goals still rankling in
his mind, he will be even harder to
beat than usual. Bill Chase, Michi-
gan's minute man is stepping into the
breech again against the Golden
Gophers just as he did down here
two years ago when Johnny Sherf and
Heyliger paced the Wolverines to the


schedule will decide the
two years ago.
