Team Meet Foes Here


'Veni, Vidi, Vici' .. .
THIS RADIO broadcasting produces
a curious sensation in a tyro.
Thursday night Harry Wismer, WJR's
dynamic young sportcaster, invited us
to accompany Coach Franklin Cap-
Pon to Detroit for a wireless quizzing,
and much to our surprise, that strange
oral paralysis known . as "mike
fright" didn't conquer us. In fact,
we were hardly nervous-at all. Our
hands got clammy with cold sweat,
our tongue dried up a bit and our
knees persisted in jostling each other,
but we weren't nervous. Not at all.
Wismer sat at his desk mike
and exploded his sports chatter
across the channels, and it looked
like a guillotine, if we remember
our movies correctly. With his
easy informality Wismer inter-
spersed in his introduction a few
extravagant bouquets, and by
this light manner helped us across
the rough spots. There was a sec-
ond's lull before we started to
answer Harry's first query, and
we half expected the sounds to
crack into shrill splinters. But
the words, surprisingly enough,
flowed freely. And we weren't ner-
vous at all. But 0, how a piece of
paper we held quivered .. .
Cappy touched an outer reach of
modesty when Wismer asked him to
confirm the suspicion that Jake
Townsend was one of the nation's
finest cagers. "Jake is liable to make
me into a good coach yet," said the
Wolverine mentor . .
Jake Vs. Jean ... .
INE cage clash renews a fierece
rivalry between Jean Smith, rival for-
ward, and Jake Townsend that start-
ed in the Indiana high schools. As
the sparkplug of Tech High in In-
dianapolis, Jake encountered Smith,
who led the Logansport, Ind., quin-
tet, in the finals of the tumultous
state tournament. Smith's outfit was
suppsoedly mediocre, and definite un-
derdogs in the betting. But the Log-
ansport lads played inspired ball and
whipped Townsend & Co., to Jake's
eternal consternation. "That was the
greatest thrill I've ever had in bas-
ketball," Smith asserts. "It has been
my ambition ever since our backyard
games." It was Jake's supreme dis-
appointment. "That's why I got such
a great kick out of beating Northwes-
tern twice last year," observes Jake.

in the Minnesota and Wisconsin
games suggests that he will continue
to see more service.
The Wildcats have a "Big Jake" of
their own, leading their offense thus
far as well. He's Jake Nagode, elon-
gated center, who has netted 46
points to date. But the Northwest-
ern sharpshooters are Capt. Fred
Trenkle and Jean Smith, forwards.
Smith has accounted for 40 points
this season, Trenkle for 27. The duo
will keep the Wolverine guards step-
Is High Scorer
It is questionable whether Mike
McMichael will see much service.
Victim of a pre-season ankle injury,
Mike has competed in only two of the
Wildcats' five games. McMichael's
absence is a severe blow to Lonborg's
contingent, for last 'year he netted

123 points to finish second among
the loop's scorers.
Lonborg has been blessed with ex-
cellent reserves. In Jim Currie, an
Evanston sophomore, he has one of
the classiest ball-handlers in the
league. Currie's erratic passing has
been his only hindrance in winning
first team honors.
Davis Versatile
Bernie Davis, another first-year
man, has pleased Lonborg with his
versatility, being usable at either
guard or forward and equally effec-
tive at both posts. Ad Vance, whose
22 points this year have helped the
Wildcats no end, and Bob Voigts are
other important reserves.
Coach Cappon unhesitatingly ad-
mits that if the Wolverines are able
to surmount tomorrow night's barrier,
and then repeat their victory over
Ohio State Monday night, his boys
will be hard to beat next semester.
Moreover, victories over the week-end
will be conducive to exam boning.
And after all, the boys will have to
hurdle that too.

Known as a strong defensive aggre-

to be underrated as shown by the
eight markers which they recently
rang up in a shutout victory.
Sarnia will have the advantage to-
night in that they boast several more
