easily out-maneuvered Gillan at the
Goalie Spike James turned in a
brilliant performance for the Maize
and Blue sextet. Time and time
again he stopped shots that seemed
certain goals as the Illini puckmen
turned on a power play offense.
Illinois outplayed the Wolverines
for the greater part of the game on
the slower ice of the Coliseum but
lacked a scoring punch. The home
sextet worked the puck down the ice
in good form but was in dire need of
- good shot-maker from close in.
While this was Michigan's third
consecutive victory over Illinois it
was the first time that the Orange
and Blue had been shut out. The
Wolverines, although their season has
been rather mediocre, seem to have
what it takes when up against the
Champaign puckmen. In a previous
appearance in Ann Arbor the Illini
dropped two games to the Lowrey-
men. If Michigan can again out-
class the Illinois sextet in the second
game of the series this Saturday it
will have hung up a perfect record
against one of its opponents on the
ice this season.

and Reinicker expected to follow
along behind.
Depend On Welsh
Michigan has Jimmy Welsh for
the middle distance events, and while
that alone is sufficient, it isn't all.
Over the 220 route, he'll swim along
with teammates Tom Williams and
Ed Hutchens. This is Hutchens' first
go at the distance this year, but his
workouts this week have shown that
he will stay right with the leaders.
Ohio has Johnny Patton, an ace
sophomore in this event while Carl
Ahlgren from Iowa, and Surles are
other possible point winners.
In the 440, it will be Welsh again
against a field that includes Patton
and Harold Stanhope of Ohio as well
as Wolverine Blake Thaxter.
The Michigan backstroke depart-
ment with Beebe, Francis Heydt and
Dick Riedl are the outstanding dor-
sal artists here this weekend. With
Stanhope, the defending champion,
swimming the freestyle events, Ohio
will depend on Elwood Woodling while
Iowa has its co-captain Al Ambrus-
ter to gather in a possible fifth.
Michigan Relay Favorite
In both of the relays, the Wolver-
ines will enter highly regarded teams
with past records marking them as
almost certain winners.
But when it comes to the diving
and breastroke, Ohio has the defend-
ing champions and the probable first
places. Johnny Sharemet, the Mich-
igan sophomore, has Isiggins to con-
tend with and is likely to push the
Buckeye past the present meet mark
of 2:25.5.
The diving will be all Ohio again,
as Patnik and his teammate, Earl
Clark, are favored to repeat their last
year's one-two performance.
Thinclads Slight Favorites
In Conference Meet
(Special to The. Daily)
CHICAGO Ill., March 8-Mich-
igan's track team begins defense of
its Western Conference Indoor
Championship tonight in the tni-
versity of Chicago Field House faced
with the hardest fight it has had
in its stretch of successive titles.
Trials in the dash, quarter-mile,
r880, and the 70-yaid high hurdles
will be held tonight, with the finals
coming tomorrow, evening.
Gunning For Michigan
Beating Michigan has been the un-
fulfilled hope of the other nine Big
Ten schools for the past six years,
with the Wolverines going on their
merry winning way. But, this year

both Indiana and Wisconsin come
to the meet loaded with strength,
and ready, willing, and of greatest
importance, able to unseat the Mich-
igan team.
In their first year under the tute-
lage of Ken Doherty, the Wolverines
expect their well-distributed strength
.to carry through to victory. They
boast the only two men who are
clear-cut favorites - Capt. Ralph
Schwarzkopf and Don Canham.
' After Records
Schwarzkopf, the nation's greatest
collegiate two-miler, will be out af-
ter the Conference record, and there
is no reason why he shouldn't get
what he wants. He has run 14 sec-
onds under the present mark al-
ready this season, and even though
he will have no serious competition,
should establish the new mark.
High-jumper Canham has added
a new style, new confidence, and
greater strength since last year when
he was second. He has twice bet-
tered the existing Conference rec-
ord, and it 'seems a foregone con-
clusion that he will knock it off the
Almost the co-favorite in the 440
is Warren Breidenbach whose duel
with Roy Cochran should be one of
the high spots of the meet. Coch-
ran has broken the world record in
this event by- more than a half-sec-
ond this year. Added to this great
duo ire the captains of Ohio State
and Illinois, Jack Sulzman and Will
McCown, respectively. Both are ex-
tremely capable runners, and the
clash between these four men should
go down in Big Ten track history.
Two Defending Champions
The only defending champions r-
turning are Northwestern's dash
star, Myron Piker, and Michigan's
one-mile relay team. Piker faces the
challenges of Michigan's Al Smith,
who lost to the Wildcat in a photo
finish at Illinois, Minnesota's George
Franck, and Chicago's former cham-
pion, John Davenport.
The Wolverine relay team comes
to the test doped to finish no better
than second or third. Injuries to
three regular members of the team
and to one of the substitutes have
taken a sure thing from the Wolver-
ine war chest.
The Michigan strength which is
being counted upon to turn the meet
in its favor is composed of quarter-
milers Jack Leutritz, half-milers Dye
Hogan, Tommy Jester and Johnny
Kautz; milers Ed Barrett and Jack
Dobson; two-milers Brad Heyl and
Will Ackerman; hurdlers Stan Kel-
ley and Jeff Hall; and relay-team
members Phil Balyeat and Bob Bar-
nard. Others who may gather much-
hoped-for points are pole-vaulters
Charlies Decker, who might Tave
been the favoite had he not in-
jured his ankle two weeks ago, Dave
Cushing and Jack McMaster; shot-
putters Bob Hook and Tommy Law-
ton, sprinters Carl Culver, Bud Piel
and Bill Harnist; hurdlers Ray Gau-
thier and Sherm Olmsted; half-miler
Howie Egert; milers Karl Wisner;
and two-miler Joe Daniels.
Grap piers Given Outside
Chance For Big Ten Title
(Special to The Daily)
Today and Saturday usher in an-
other Western Conference wrestling
championship. Grapplers from all
Big Ten schools have converged on
Chicago this weekend to decide the
individual and team championships
after a well scrambled season.
Indiana stands alone as the team
to beat, according to -Coach Cliff
Keen of the Maize and Blue forces.
The powerful Hoosiers overcame an
early season injury handicap to de-
velop the best team in their history.
The 23 to 3 shellacking handed to
the strong Michigan team last week-
end is evidence enough that Indiana
has reached its peak.
May Topple Hoosiers

Michigan, conqueror of Penn
State, Michigan State and Navy, and
salvager of a tie with Ohio Stalge,
stands the best change of toppling
the Hoosiers from the crown. Dis-
regarding last weed's topheavy score,
the Wolverines' strength lies.in the
same weights as Indiana's. The in-
dividual matches in the Michigan-
Indiana dual meet were largely close
affairs and withable matmen from
other teams getting their share of
points the Wolverines may slip in
under the wire.
Coach Keen has named outstand-
ing men in the various weight brac-

Eli Supremacy ...
YALE has a fine swimming team.
Yale has always had a fine swim-
ming team. Undoubtedly, as long
as Bob Kiphuth remains there as
coach, it will continue to have a fine
swimming team.
With this off our emaciated chest,
we'll quote from the Yale News of
Feb. 29. "The one blot on the Eli's
swimming record, of course, is the
setback delivered by Michigan. There
is no desire to belittle Michigan's
well-earned victory, but since Yale
did not have the advantage of a
Christmas trip to Florida which was
of no small significance so early in
the season, one cannot help but
wish that these two teams could meet
again now that the Elis have reached
their peak,
"This wish will to some degree be
realized when Yale will swim against
Michigan, among other colleges, at
the Intercollegiates. While this will
not have the meaning of a duel meet,
it will give Bob Kiphuth's men an
opportunity to regain supremamy
over their western opponents. (ed.
note: reread that last sentence.
Okay, now proceed).
It might very well be that Yale
could best Michigan in a dual meet.
The facts might show that the Elis
couldn't and the facts also show that
when the two met earlier in the
year, the Wolverines won, 46-29. Not
exactly close but of course the Yalies
kets and the ultimate champions will
very likely come out of these classi-
fications. Among the heavyweights
is Sikich, Illinois, runner-up in the
Nationals last year, andI Downes,
Ohio State, Levy, Minnesota, and
Jordan, Michigan, loom on the hori-
zon. Inman, Indiana, Don Nichols,
of the Wolverines, and Govedare,
Illinois, are outstanding in the 175-
pound class. The 165 crown will
probably be decided between Mich-
igan's Jim Galles and Conference
champion McDanields, of the Hoo-
Danner Favored
Harland Danner, Coach Keen's
great 155-pound star, is the most
likely choice for the Conference ti-
tle. Meyer, Ohio State, the only Tpan
to defeat Danner in dual competi-
tion, and Janescu, Minnesota, also
stand out. Bill Combs, Michigan,
Montonaro, Ohio State, second in
the Nationals, and Roman, Indiana,
at 145 and Wilson, Indiana, Emmons,
Illinois, and MacIntyre, O.S.U. at
136 are the cream of their divisions.
Among the lightweights National
champ Hansen of Minnesota, Anton-
acci, Indiana, and Petrie, Illinois, at
126 and Tom Weidig, Michigan, Sef-
ton, Indiana and Fredericks, Midwest
A.A.U. champion, are outstanding.

hadn't had the benefit of a trip to
Florida. Sorry, we almost forgot
Now, back to our real gripe. So
Yale wishes to regain her swimming
supremacy. If we're not too rude
we'd ask when was Yale supreme?
Back in the stone age? In the last
three years Michigan has won all
three meets. Michigan has been Na-
tional Collegiate champion for the
last seven years. Yale never was
collegiate champ.
Back in 1929 Yale whippel the
Wolverines in a dual meet and
also, during the thirties, rolled
up 162 consecutive victories. In
that time, the two schools met
only at the Collegiates. At the
risk of appearing repititious,
Michigan has annexed the last
seven Collegiate titles.
On the basis of the record, the
only supremacy Yale can regain is
that of the Ivy League.
By the way, we think Yale has a
fair chance to win the Collegiates
this year. I
