When the Michigan quintet invades
hampaign this Saturday, the boys
rom Ann Arbor will really be out to
top one man. Not that Bill Hapac,
on Nisbet, Jay Wardley and Johnnie
)rich will be overlooked, but most
f the Wolverines will be gunning for
cwis "Pick" Dehner.
All Michigan basketball rooters can
cadily recall the rather rotund, slow-
ooted Dehner as the gentleman
'ith the discouraging habit of hitting
he hoop from the pivot slot.
Third High Scorer
Last year when Dehner finished
bird in Big Ten scoring, many fans
iscounted his fine showing on the
round that his efficiency came as a
esult of having Lou Boudreau on
he same team.
But to the dismay of these skep-
ics Dehner, without the presence of
Boudreau, is going even better than
last year. In the games played so far
his season Dehner's shooting has
been the main reason for the fine
howing of the Illini.
During the Illinois game against
Manhattan at Madison Square Gar-
den last week, "Pick" rang up 25
points to tie the Garden scoring
record. He probably would have brok-
en the record if Coach Doug Mills,
who thought that the record was
already broken, had not removed him
with three minutes of playing time
remaining.
He's Not Bashful
Dehner is even more colorful while
off the basketball floor. One of the
most amusing stories about "Pick's"
off-court antics is the one about
his memorable speech on the great-
ness of Lewis Dehner.
It seems that while in a public
Ipeaking class Dehner arose and
calmly stated: "What Bobby Jones is
to golf, what Babe Ruth is to base-
ball, and what Jack Dempsey is to
boxing, Lewis Dehner is to basket-
ball."
Three More Records
To prove this modest statement]
Dehner pointed out that he had

scored 168 points in three games
while playing amateur ball in Lin-
coln. Ill., the previous year, (a record
of some sort). He also pointed out
that he held the Big Ten scoring
record of 29 points for one game
(broken later by Ernie Andres of In-
diana), and he also held the Illinois
scoring record for one season's play.
But despite these exuberant out-
bursts Dehner remains the most
popular player on the team, and you
can be sure that he is going to be in
there for all he's worth Saturday
trying to retain his self-imposed repu-
tation of greatness.

Epsilon will match forces at the I-M

Browns Get 'Hero Maker'

Squad Plays Port Dover
At Coliseum Saturday
Although Coach Eddie Lowrey and,
his Wolverine hockey team have been
able to stay clear of the losing column
so far this season, the two hard p'ac-
tice sessions since vacation indicate
that a revised Michigan team will
start against Port Dover this Satur-
day night at the Coliseum
In both of their victories and their
opening tie game an inexperienced
Wolverine squad outplayed their op-
position. However, due to the sloppy
win over Western Reserve Coach
Lowrey will change his entire team,
with the exception of "Spike" James
in the goal.
On the Coliseum ice this Saturday
night the Wolverines will face, for
the first time, a strong sextet repre-
senting the Port Dover Hockey Club
of Canada.
Last year in the Intermediate
Hockey playoffs of Ontario thirty-
eight out of forty-six teams were
eliminated before the Port Dover
Sailors suffered their first defeat.
With the exception of last year's
starting center the visiting team will
bring two experienced sextets for
Saturday's contest.
Before the first game of the new
year the varsity will have put in
three hard 90 minute drills, during
which Coach Lowrey will use differ-
ent combinations in order to have a
well balanced team ready .for action
Saturday night.
After a short breathing spell the
Wolverines will face the London
Athletic Club here next Tuesday
night. This contest will be followed
with the first conference game when
Michigan meets Illinois on Jan. 14.

After showing little early this
season, Tom Harmon, star gridder
and candidate on Michigan's cage
squad, has suddenly begun to play
real basketball. Leading the second
team yesterday, Tom scored 30
points as his quintet trimmed the
Varsity 82 to 66 in a long scrim-
mage.
