Townsend Ends
Playing Career
Against Pur le
Jake Needs Eight Points
To Break Oosterbaan's
All-Time Scoring Record
The Townsend era ends tomorrow
It's the last game for the Wol-
verine captain as Michigan and
Northwestern tangle in the season's
finale at the Field House. Game time
is 7:30 p.m.
Hopelessly mired-in a tie for sixth
place, the game will decide nothing
as far as Michigan is concerned. Yet
a large crowd is predicted as big Jake
writes finis to the outstanding career
in the history of Michigan basketball.
Jake needs eight points tonight to
crack the all time Michigan record
for 12 Conference gahes held by
Bennie Oosterbaan, who rang up
129 points in 1928. Townsend has
scored 122 points to date.
Another drama will be unfolded in
the Field House tomorrow night. It's
the return to competition of coura-
geous Bill Barclay, senior guard.
Barclay, shelved by a leg injury in
January, was given little chance of
ever playing, again.
Yet Bill has come back-deter-
minedly, convincingly, and in the
face of a deluge of "they'never come
back" utterings of doubtful onlook-
A third senior, Herm Fishman, the
stocky dribbling ace, closes his career
tomorrow night. And Herm joins
whole heartedly with his teammates
-especially the two aforementioned
seniors-in proposing an apt consum-
mation of the three years, namely-
"let's take Northwestern."
The Wildcats, hampered by the
loss of Capt. Fred Trenkle who broke
his arm in the Ohio State game last
week-end, are a potent quintet. They
have an outstanding forward in Mike
McMichael, the crack shot senior,
who was inactive during the bulk of
the season due to injuries; a good
running mate for Mike in lanky Jean
Smith; a reliable center in big Jake
Nagode; and two good guards in Ad
Vance and Jim Currie.
Probable lineups:
Michigan . pos. Northwestern
Townsend ....... f ...... McMichael
Thomas ......... . ......... Smith
Rae ............. c......... Nagode
Beebe ........... g.......... Currie
Fishman ........ g.......... Vance

Matmen Suffer
But One Loss
In Dual Season

Baseball Players Vie For Posts
Under New Field House Lights

Mericka, Danner,
And H. Nichols
Foes In Slam

All 'Pin

Finishing their dual meet season
in a blaze of glory, Coach Cliff Keen's
wrestlers last night downed Ohio Uni-
versity to the tune of 29 to 0 in
Yost Field House. The Bobcats fol-
lowed the course of Michigan State
and Temple, in that none of these
teams were able to eke out one match
from the local grapplers.
Fighting the last home battle of
their careers as Wolverines, Paul
Cameron and Co-Captain Earl Tho-
mas were given a big ovation by the
fans as both walked off the mat
victorious after their contests. "Cam-
mey" started the winning drive when
he defeated Gene Porozynski by a
referee's decision in the 126-pound
Mericka Wins In Three Minutes
Jim Mericka continued his clean
slate average when he pinned Ray
Sieracki of the visitors after three
minutes of their match. Mericka
has wrestled in three meets this year
and in each case he has taken his
contest by pushing his opponents
shoulders to the mat.
Co-Captain Thomas, who normally
works at 135 pounds, came through
in the next weight class, 145 pounds,
by pushing Paul Deturk around the
mats and garnered together 16 points
while his heavier rival could draw
only seven tallies.
Continuing to show his improved
form since the start of the year, Har-
old Nichols working at 155 pounds
added five more points to the Wol-
verine score. Harold lost no time in
going after his man, and after pick-
ing up three points on a near pin in
the first minute he came through two
minutes later and pinned his rival.
Danner Keeps Slate Clean
Harland Danner, Coach Keen's out-
standing junior, once again thrilled
the fans with his wide open tactics
in his match at 165 pounds with Ur-
anus Sepetowski. After toying with
his Bobcat opponent at the begin-
ning, Danner finished the match with
a pin in four minutes.
Sophomore Don Nichols had full
control in his match with Phil Lewan-
dowski and at no time was he in any
kind of trouble. After picking up
nine points on near pin decisions
"Nick" walked off the mat with the
long end of a 23 to 7 score in his
fajvor. In his year's competition
the Michigan sophomore has not felt
the sting of defeat, having won seven
consecutive matches.
The heavyweight class saw an-
other five points added to the score,
when, after throwing Ross Smith
around the mat for four minutes, Joe
Savilla came through and -put his
rival's shoulders on the mat.

Dark days will no longer hold up_
the practice sessions of the Varsity
baseball team in the Field House.
Coach Ray Fisher has made arrange-
ments for a large battery of lights
to be installed over the batting cages.
Formerly at least one and some-
times more days each week were un-
fit for hitting practice because the
lighting was so dim that batting was
not only dangerous but very difficult
as well. With the lights installed it
will be possible to hold workouts in
Start New Golf
Series Monday
Courtright Will Continue
Course For Novices
With his first winte, series of golf
lessons successfully completed Coach
Ray Courtright has announced that a
second series will be inaugurated next
week. These lessons will be given in
the golf room at the Intramural
Sports Building.
The new series, which will last for
three weeks, will have two sections,
the first meeting on Monday and
Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. and the sec-
ond meeting at the same time on
Tuesday and Thursday. Both sec-
tions will have identical lectures. ,
Believing that anyone can learn to;
play a good game of golf if he
gets the fundamentals, Mr. Courtright
is conducting these lessons so that
students and faculty members may
get those fundamentals.
It will not be long before the
mashie-wielders can take to the hills
and dales of the golf course and now
is the time to start preparing for
that attack on par, says Mr. Court-
Red Wings Face Bruins
'Jinx' Team At Detroit
DETROIT, March 5. - () -The
Red Wings, Detroit's fast-fading
champions of the National Hockey
League, meet another of their "Jinx"
teams, the Boston Bruins, here to-
morrow night in their effort to re-
tain a slender chance to participate
in the post-season playoffs.
Last season the Wings whipped the
Bruins seven times in eight games.
In the current campaign Detroit has
salvaged only one victory and one
& in seven meetings with the league

Relieved of his coacning duties with
the Freshman' basketball squad,
Coach Fisher will now devote all of
his attention to the ball players.
Turnout Nearly Complete
The appearance of Merle "Butch"
Kremer, captain of the Varsity an
hard-hitting outfielder, makes the
turnout complete with the exception
of Pitchers Bert Smith, Herm Fish-
man, Danny Smick and Russ Dobson,
catcher Leo Beebe and first sacker
Elmer Gedeon who are still busy with
other sports, but who will return
within the next week. Others untried
as yet are also expected to report.
Even at this early date several
battles for positions seem imminent.
At first base Howard "Hank" Green-
berg will be fighting for the post along
with Danny Smick, veteran of last
year, and Elmer Gedeon who looks
like a good bet to beat out both men.
The catching slot will find Leo
Beebe of last year's squad defending
his Varsity position against Forest Ev-
ashevski, a newcomer to the squad,
and Les Brauser, senior veteran.
Earl Smith Returns
In the infield Earl Smith, ineligible
last spring, is making a strong bid to
break into the sector which has letter-
winners available-for every position.
The big'gest scrap will probably
result in the race for pitching posi-
tions. Who, besides Bert Smith, Herm
Fishman and perhaps Russ Dobson,
will share the hurling duties is only
problematical. Danny Smick may
find a spot there should Gedeon re-
place him at first and should his arm
stand the strain of pitching. Also on
tap are Chuck McHugh, Ed Andron-
ick and John Herring all of whom
have some Varsity experience behind
them. In addition several men from
last year's frosh squad are working
out daily.

Who Is Smith ? ? ?


Townsend, the hub of Michigan's at-
tack, get the nod over a host of other
men who spear-headed the rest of the
league offenses.
Outstanding, of course has been
Young's ability to count from prac-
tically any spot on the floor and to
sink shots on- numerous occasions
from almost impossible angles. But
besides his pacesetting ability, he has
shown that he can outmaneuver the
opposing defense and act as feeder
when the opposition became too tight
to permit him to play in his custo-
mary position on the receiving end.
Jake Townsend takes his regular'
position on the mythical five this
year in place of the center post to
which he was named last season. His
play has been practically the direct
antithesis of Young's. Michigan's{
success during the early part of thel
season was a direct result of his feed-
ing ability, his tricky passing and
play-setting which enabled the Wol-
verines to score on plays which were
often too quick to be followed from
the stands.
While these two men seem to be the
outstanding choices for the forward
positions, they were closely trailed

Rolek, njuredt during tnis period,
returned and almost synonomously
the Gophers began to rise. Diminu-
tive Marty engineered the Minnesota
attack with an intelligent floor gen-
eralship, while his individual play
left little to be-desired.
The other guard post goes to In-
diana's Ernie Andres. With forwards
dominating ' the Big Ten scoring
race, Andres alone of the guards
proved to be a consistent offensive
threat. His record-breaking 30 points
against Illinois Friday night placed
him second among the scorers.
There was a mad sc amoie for sec-
ond team honors with Purdue's 'Pat
Malaska and Northwestern's Fred
Trenkle finally winning out.
Malaska was the inspirational force
behind Purdue. Not a high scoring
player, he possessed great speed, was
a good ball handler, and played a rov-
ing defensive game.
