avored Over Iowa; Sextet Picked To Beat


By Mel Fineberg
Where, Oh Where
The search for the 1940 football
opponent to replace the late deceased
Chicago on the Michigan schedule
goes on apace. Rumors fill the air
and every school from Southern Cali-
fornia to the University of Nova
Scotia is reported to have signified
that their football life won't be com-
plete unless Michigan is a part of it,
It's pretty difficult to separate
the wheat from the chaff as some
earlier sports writer once said, but
we'll get out our private thresh-
ing machine and start the agri-
cultural process on that new mys-
tery thriller.
First of all, Michigan will not play
the University of Nova Scotia. There
is no University of Nova Scotia and
it would be a little too much trouble
to create one just for 1940. Secondly,
Michigan will not play Southern Cali-
fornia. This is a matter of reord.
Now listed among those whom
Michigan also will not play are:.
Tulsa, Holy Cross, Tennessee,
Princeton, Nebraska. Tulsa and
Holy Cross have open dtes on
November 2 (Michigan's hole)
and have mailed In their suplIca-
tions and entreaties. Tennessee
offered to shift their schedule
about to suit the Wolverines'
wishes.. Princeton isn't interest-
ed and Nebraska has a fullsched-
ule. That eliminates all of them.
Also among those who have open
dates on that fateful day are Boston
College and the University of Detroit.
Jack Curley, the B.C. athletic director
has been in Ann Arbor trying to ar-
range the game but it is extremely
doubtful that it will be consummat-
ed.' Nor is it likely that the U. of D.
will be that opponent.
And that leaves us back where
we started from. Purdue. and
Pittsburgh. Purdue, because we
know that Fritz Crisler and Noble,
Kizer have been in touch with one
another;. Pittsburgh because the
Panthers have been surprisingly
quiet'about the whole affair. And
we think that Pitt has the edge.
If it weren't for the fact that there
is some schedule shifting involved in
the Purdue case, we believe that it
would be already in the bag. But
negotiations are under way for other
schools and only as A comparative
last resort will the involved date-shift-
ing be done. That is, we believe, all
that stands in the way of a Purdue-
Michigan game.
* * *
This afternoon Michigan and
Ohio State tangle in the beautiful
Buckeye natatorium-and unless
we miss our guess (always ex-
ceedingly doubtful) the outcome
will be quite different than the
two 42-42 ties of last year. Aqua-
tically speaking, this Michigan
crew has what it takes.
So just for a change we'll step out
on a watery limb and probably belly-
flop to a watery grave. The Wolver-
ines, Big Ten and National Cham-
pions, will win 57-27. And we'll even
let you know how it's going to be
Michigan will be one-two in
the 50, the 100, the 220, the 440.
The Wolverineswill win both re-
lays, takes a first and third in the
backstroke (Ohio's Stunhope
could win this one, though) and
second and third in the breast
' stroke. But the lads of brave
Ohio, bless their little hearts, will
annex first and second in the

dive. Add it all up and it comes
to Michigan 57, Ohio 27. Q.E.D.
Yale's free style relay team swam
the distance in 3:31.6, three-tenths
of second off the world's record held.
by the New York Athletic Club. But,
none of the four swimmers had com-
peted in any other event that evening.
Howie Johnson, Ed Pope, Russ Dun-
can and Bill Sanburne all saved
themselves for this one fling. And
quite a fling it was.

port via the ineligibility route. Crafty
Mike had depended on his former
captain to take care of the sprint du-
ties, and the loss, observers here esti-
mated, will take from 15 to 20 points
from the Buckeyes' total.
However, the Ohio squad is still
sparkled with such capable veteran
performers as co-captains Johnny
Higgins, and Al Patnik, Elwood
Woodling, Earl Clark, Harold "Curly"
Stanhope, and Ed Poscavage. They're
all point winners and certainly can't
be counted out of this meet yet.
Mike Peppe's biggest problem,
therefore, comes in finding a suitable
replacement for Quayle. The Buck-
eye speed demon not only took care
of the individual events, but 'he also
anchored both of Peppe's relay teams.
Ohio Lineup Unknown ,
Although the Ohio coach refused
to announce a definite lineup flntil
sometime tomorrow, it was generally
believed here that the sprint burden
will fall on three newcomers, Johnny
Patton, Bud Erich and Carmine Or-
sini plus Lou Fall, a junior free styler
who recently re-entered school after
a three year absence.
Patton is the Buckeye sophomore
phenomena, and if he goes right to-
morrow Ohio will undoubtedly be a
potent\contender. The lad will prob-
ably swim in three events, the 100,
220 and 440-yard free style races.
Recently in a Toledo exhibition, Pat-
ton took eight seconds off of a Buster
Crabbe 220-yard mark.
In the century the Buckeye sopho-
more along with Orsini will meet Gus
of the Sharemets and Hutchens. In
the 220 he'll probably have team-
mate Erich along for compay as he
splashes against the great Wolverine
duo, Welsh,. champion of the Big
Ten at this distance, Williams, the
sophomore. The quarter mile will
probably find Welsh and Patton at
it again with Burton, Mann's pocket
battleship, and Woodling for Ohio.
Breaststroke Is Feature Race
In the 200-yard breastroke, Mich-
igan will have Haigh and John Share-
met to match strokes with Olympic
natator Higgins. This race ought to
be one of the features of tomorrow's
battle, for although the Buckeye was
whipped by the two Wolverines in
Florida, observers here believe he is
back in condition for this meet.
Beebe, third in the Big Ten, and
sophomore Riedl will swim the 150-
yard backstroke for . the visitors
against Stanhope another Western
Conference champ, and Poscavage.
Peppe's forte tomorrow will be his
diving duo, Patnik and Clark. The
two, who have more titles than the
king of England, are highly favorrA
to finish one-two over Michigan's
Benham and Wolin.
In the 50-yard sprint, Mann will
use Barker, the National Collegiate
champ, and Bill Holmes against
probably Fall and Orsini.
Admiral Mann announced his
starting relay teams tonight, but
again Coach Peppe refused to make
his choices. In the Michigan medley
team will be Beebe, along with John
and Gus Sharemet, while the Wol-
verine free style quartet will include
Williams, Barker, Gillis and Gus

whom it has been erroneously re-
ported is 6 ft. 11 in. He is only 5 ft.
11 in.1
Dissatisfied with the way his cen-
ters have shown up in recent en-r
counters, Williams has been working
Erwin Prasse, regular guard, at the
pivot post in practice this week. The
Hawkeye mentor feels that Prasse,
who is 6 ft. 2 in., is not tall enough
to meet the majority of the Big Ten
centers on equal terms, but his work
has been much better than the regu-
lar Iowa centers.
If Prasse gets the nod to move up
from the back line, Lind will prob-k
ably take over his post. However, it
is more than likely that Dick Evans
or Kenny Bastian, both six foot gi-'
ants whom scout Jake Townsend list-
ed as men to watch, will be in at the
opening jump.
Rae Leads Michigan Scorers
Leading the Wolverines in scoring
for the nine games played so far is
Captain Rae with 95 points, but Mike
Sofiak, who is tied for second place
in the Big Ten scoring race, holds
the edge in Conference games with 24
points. Including all the tilts Char-
lie Pink trails Rae with 66 and So-
fiak is third with 62. Then come
Herb Brogan with 60, Cartmill with
32, and Fitzgerald with 30.,
Behind Iowa's leader, Siegel, are
Wheeler with 48 points, Lind has col-
lected 46, Bastian with 24, and Prasse
with 23. Against all competition
Iowa has scored 310 points, averag-
ing 34.4 per game, while opponents
have a 37.7 average on 340 points. A
great deal of the Hawkeye's scoring
trouble has been from the free throw
line where the team has missed 62
charity tosses and made 60.
Wolverines Have Best Record
Compared to this Michigan has
both a better offensive and defen-
sive record having scored 379 points
for an average of 42.1 per game while
its opponents scored 297 points for
an average of 33.0 per game.
If the Wolverines keep up their
past performance and come out on
top as they are slated to do, the real
ability of the team should be tested
Monday when Illinois invades the
Field House. Michigan will be the
under-dog for the first time since the
Big Ten race started when it tangles
