in last spring's battle, copping firsts
in three races.
In tonight's 60-yard dash Bud Piel
is Michigan's best bet against the
Panther duo. Piel ran very well at
the Illinois Relays last week, turn-
ing in an excellent 7.6 performance
for the 75-yard dash, and he is cer-
tain to press the Pittmen closely.
A Pittsburgh lad himself, sopho-
more Bob Ufer, Michigan's promis-
ing quarter-miler, will make his home
debut in his specialty under stiff com-
petitive conditions, then will double
inhthe all-important mile relay. Ufer,
who broke or tied all freshman rec-
ords from the 50 to the 880 last year,
will renew an old-time rivalry with
Stickel in the 440 with the outcome'
a toss-up.t
Barnard May Not Run j
Michigan's little Bob Barnard de-
velopeda sore throat last night and
may be forced to forgo }both the
quarter and the mile relay. In this
case, it is probable that Doherty will1
let Al Thomas pair with Ufer in the'
quarter, and shove Buck Dayson in-
to the relay quartet, joining Bill
Dobson, Thomas and anchorman
Ufer.
And so closely are the two teams'
strength matched, according to pre-
nieet dope, the flying spikes of this
Contrary to usual curcom, the
Michigan-Pitt dual meet clash
will begin a half-hour later to-
night, at 8 p.m., because of the
Panthers' late arrival.

New Players
Add Strength
To Ice Teakn
Two new players and two familiar
faces in new positions will be seen by
local hockey fans when the Michigan
pucksters take the ice tomorrow
against the powerful Brantford A.C.
Capt. Charley Ross will trade po-
sitions with his roommate, Johnny
Gillis, for the encounter with thef
Canadians, Ross moving up to the
right wing post on the first line while
Gillis drops back to handle the de-
fense duties with the aid of Bert
Stodden.-
"Ross and Stodden are our lead-
ing offensive threats, anyway," Coach
Eddie-Lowrey points out, "so we might
as well have one of them up in front
where he will be able to take more
shots. The defense won't be weakened
appreciably since Gillis is a rugged
boy who deals out plenty of good
hard checks and also a pretty good
poke-checker."
Sophomore Bob Fife, who was kept
out of action the first semester by
ineligibility, will take over the left
wing job on the starting forward
line with veteran Paul Goldsmith
j playing center. Fife is a husky boy,I
and a fast, clever skater. He shouldl
add considerable scoring punch to
the Wolverine lineup.
The other newcomer is diminutive
Johnny Petritz who will team upI
with Max Bahrych and Roy Brad-
ley on the third line. Petritz is small

IOWA CITY, Feb. 20. - Iowa's
swimming team threw a scare into
Michigan's National intercollegiate
champions here tonight before a near
capacity crowd of 2,500 fans but the
Wolverines came from behind and
Iroppzd the Hawkeyes 50 to 34 for
,heir 24th consecutive dual triumph.
The meet started out to be a typi-
cal Michigan walk-away but the
Iowans scored two slams before the
half-way mark and were leading the
invading mermen 23 to 22 with but
four events left on the schedule.
Welsh, Thaxter Take 440
Michigan did not :lave the victory
clinched until Jim Welsh and Blake
Thaxter came one-two in the 440-
yard free style race to put their club
ahead 42 to 30 with but the 400-yard
free style relay left on the program.
Much to the disappointment of
the fans who crowded the pool, no
national collegitae records were
marked up. Al Povilaitis, Hawkeye
sophcmore, cracked the Iowa pool
record in the 200-yard breast stroke
when he upset Jim Skinner, twice
the AAU champion in this event,
with a time of 2:33.3, just one second
over the NCAA mark. Povilaitis, whc

The team Townsend will send
against the pros needs no introduc-
tion to those who have followed Mich-
igan cage teams during the past five
years. Townsend himself was admit-
tedly the best passer in the nation
while he played here, and 'broke Var-
sity Coach Benny Oosterbaan's all
time Michigan scoring record with a
total of 135 in his last Conference
season, six points better than Ooster-
baan's 1929 record. Townsend is at
present attending law school here
while serving as assistant to Ooster-
baan.
Jim Rae, Toledo boy who led the
Wolverines last season, started his
,areer in Townsend's shadow at the
.enter spot, and overcame an injury
n his senior year to come into his
)wn last year as a worthy successor
to Jake. He is an excellent ball-hand-
ler, and shows flashes of passing abil-
ty second only to Townsend's.
Fishman, stocky little guard, was a
zember of the Michigan five while
Townsend was gaining his fame, and
was on the receiving end of many of
J ke 's passes from the ,foul circle.
Thomas played on the same team
with Townsend and Fishman in his
junior year, and was a standout guard
and a regular on Oosterbaan's first
Wolverine squad.
Harmon, who has devoted most
of his time, and profitably, to foot-
ball at Michigan, took one shot at
the cage game while here, and that
was enough to show that he was a
top-flight player. He turned out for
-he sport in his sophomore year, and
led the team in scoring.

relay quartet are quite likely to
churn out the cifference between de-
feat and victory.
Wolverine Capt. Don Canham will
be out to better his own Field House
record of 6 feet 6 3-8 inches in the
high jump, and Pitt's Dave McDow-
ell will push him hard. Canham,
National Collegiate champion, leaped
6 feet 6 inhees last week at Cham-
paign, while McDowell has cleared
6 feet 4 inches already this season.
Michigan's second entry in the
high jump is sophomore Frank Mc-
Carthy, who will be a busy young
man, having entered the broad jump
and both hurdles as well. In the
broad jump McCarthy can do about
23 feet and will be favored over Pitt-
men Bill Carter and Robert Norton.
In the low hurdles once again it
is Stickel who will cause the Maize
and Blue the most trouble. Veteran
Jeff Hall, McCarthy, and Thomas
will strive to match his skill over
the low barriers for Michigan. The
high hurdles will see Hall and Mc
Carthy joined by Andrew Watson
against Pitt's senior Joe Newman,
Bill Cooper and Henry Sulkowski.
Wisner In Mile
Expected to score heavily in the
distance events where the Panthers
are weakest, Michigan will send long-
striding Bill Ackerman into the two-
mile against Marcus Allias, while a
quartet of good runners, Karl Wis-
ner, Jack Dobson, John Purdue and
Herb Leake will carry Wolverine
hopes in the mile against Bob Davies
and Walter Sterner. Wisner has
bettered 4:19 and looks like the class
of the -fild.
In the *half mile Dave Matthews,
steady sophomore, Johnny Kautz and
Howie Egert are slated to face Pitt's
ace 880-man, Del Anderson, who may
also double in the mile as well as
performing on the relay quartet.
Michigan's top three weight men,
Bob Hook, Tommy Lawton and Gene
Hirsch, will be up against some husky
Panther gridmen in the persons of
Bill Benghouser, Ted Konetsky, and
Jim Medloch, with Hook rating best
from past performances.
If the meet reaches the final relay
event with the result still hanging
fire, Pitt will probably pin its hopes
on Capt. Larry Tregoning, Anderson,
Stickel, and either Bud Graf or soph-
omore Regis Larkin.
