Notre Dame Quintet Invades Field House Tomorrow


Favored Irish
Seek Revenge
For '38 Defeat
Fitzgerald To Start Game
At Forward; Visitors
Boast Four Victories
Having already settled with Wis-
consin for last year's defeat, Notre
Dame's basketball squad will attempt
to settle the score with its second Big
Ten opponent when it engages Mich-
igan this Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.
at the Field House.
The favored Irish quintet will also
be out to continue a four-game win-
ing streak in addition to revenging
the defeat which they suffered at
the hands of the Wolverines on their
own floor in the last 70 seconds of
play last season. Charlie Pink tied
the score up when he made good on
two foul shots that he was awarded
and Danny Smick followed this up
with a field goal to give Michigan
a 40-38 triumph.
Wolverines On Short End
The set-up this Saturday will be
the same as last year when the Wol-
verines went into the game on the
short end of the odds for the second
straight week, but then as now the
Michigan squad had defeated a fa-
vored Spartan basketball squad the
week before.
Whether Michigan can repeat last
year's performance of up-setting the
pre-game dope twice in a row is high-
ly doubtful, but as the optimist Ben-
nie Oosterbaan has been saying right
along, "You never can tell what is
going to happen."
However, Oosterbaan has a great
deal of respect for Coach George
Keogan, who is starting his 17th sea-
son at the helm of the Irish cagers,
and he has stated that, "Notre Dame
has a good basketball squad this year;
but then they always come up with
A* great team."
Traveling Squad Doubtful
At present Oosterbaan's biggest
worry is who to take on the Eastern
swing. Last night he stated definite-
ly that Capt. Jim Rae, Charlie Pink,
Herb Brogan, Mike Sofiak, Bob Fitz-
gerald, who will start against Notre
Dame, and Bill Cartmill would be
or the traveling squad.
Due to their consistent perform-
ances and the fine brand of ball they
played in last night's final scrimmage
before the ,Irish contest, Bill Herr-
mann and GeorgeRuehle appear to
have the inside track on two of the

In their opening game this season,
the lads from New Haven walloped
the New York Athletic Club puck-
sters by a one-sided score of 9-1. The
game was featured by the brilliant
play of Dave Rodd, senior center who
pulled the "hat trick" scoring once
in the first period and twice more in
the second.
The second game for the Eli end-
ed in a 5-5 tie after 70 minutes of
hectic hockey. Although the Blue

course of the contest, their opponents
the Boston Junior Olympics came
back each time to tie the score and
send the game into overtime.
In the extra period, Yale gain took
the lead but were forced to be con-

Paul Sobek, six-foot forward, will
be the only sophomore in the Notre
Dame quintet's starting line-up
Saturday night. At present he is
leading the Irish in the scoring
column, which shows that Notre
Dame has averaged a point-a-
minute in its four-game winning
covered from a cold to be considered.
Three Irish Threats

ders over his traveling squad, he must

burning up the meshes for the Irish,
Assistant Coach Jake Townsend,
who scouted the Irish in their 51-33
victory over Wisconsin, reports that
Ertel is one of the finest pivot men
in this part of the country. He stands
6 ft. 4 in. and is the loose and re-
laxed type on the floor, who can fake
and handle the ball well. He scored
14 points against the Badgers.

Ed Riska, 5 ft. 11 in. forward,
will be the smallest man in the
Irish starting line-up, which av-
erages 6 ft. 1 in. and a man to
be watched since he is a constant
scoring threat. Last year he scored
19 points against the Wolverines,
and Tuesday night against the
Badgers he warmed up by scoring
14 points.

Charlie Bachman:' A happier year.

Eddie Lowrey: Ice in the summer

Harry Thomas: Either a gag or a

quiet in the future: the latter to let
him start talking in earnest. Either
one will be a relief from the eye-

then let Hogan set the pace for the1
second lap. Then they'd fight it out.1
Briedenbach started out, as per
schedule, ran a 26 second furlong and
then dutifully stepped aside to let
Hogan pass. But Hogan was bash-
ful, not to mention tired. "Go ahead,"
he puffed. So Briedenbach did. He
ran 27 seconds for the next 220 and
then 27.5 for the final third for a
total elapsed time of 1:20.5.
The closest time Ken Doherty can
remember is when this same Bried-
enbach ran 1:20.3, outdoors at the
end of last year. It looks as though
we can expect big things from the
taciturn quarter miler.

Wolverine Mermen Head South
SToday For Lauderdale Meeting


Everybody around here goes on
vacation today except the Michigan
swimming team.
For the mermen it marks the start
of the annual trek toward the sunny
southland to take part in the Fort
Lauderdale International Aquatic
Forum, and while there's a change
of scenery ,o be sure, it will be busi-
ness before pleasure in Florida for
the Wolverines this year.
Both Ohio State and Yale are on
the Michigan schedule shortly after
school gets under way, and so Matt
Mann's five-car expedition takes off

for Florida today with the idea of
getting in plenty of work and train-
ing during the two-week sojourn.
Twelve Make Trip
Twelve varsity natators and one
freshman are making the trip with
Matt and his family. Included among
those going are: Charley Barker, Gus
and John Sharemet, Dobson Burton,
Bill Holmes, Ed Hutchens, Jim Welsh,
John Patten, John Haigh, Tommy
Williams, Ed Mack, Bill Beebe and
Strother "T-Bone" Martin.
As usual the high point in the
forum will be the annual East-West
relays that will be held Christmas
Day in the 50-meter Fort Lauderdale
pool. With Michigan, Ohio and
Wayne leading the way, the West
ought to find no trouble conquering
their eastern rivals.
While the Michigan team plays
the leading role in the afternoon
swimming exhibitions, Secretary of
State Cordell Hull will be the head-
liner at the annual banquet, express-
ing the theme of the forum, "Peace
Through Athletics."
