Renaissance Rates As Pro


F inest


At least two of Jake Townsend's
All-Stars-Jim Rae and Eddie Thom-
as-will have a good idea of what'
they're facing Friday night when
they take the Field House court
against the deadly New York Renais-
sance club in the WAA Swimming
Pool Fund benefit game.
The reputation the fast colored
five has established is warning
enough. They've been playing the pro
circuit now for some 17 years, and
for most of that time the Rens have
ranked on top, aaginst any team, at
any time, on any court.
Rae Has Experience
Rae, tall, sharp-shooting Michigan
center and captain last year, found
out just how true this reputation is
during the holiday season this past
winter when he faced the Rens in
Toledo while playing with Chuck
Advance purchase of tickets for

tween the Townsend All Stars and,
the New York Renaissance Friday
night at Yost Field house can be
made at the Michigan Union, the
Michigan League, Slater's and
Wahr's Book Stores, and at the
Michigan Daily. Admission is 50
cents, and there will be no re-
served seats. Tickets will also be
sold at the door at game time.
Chuckovits' All-Stars. Thomas can
turn to memories of the winter night
in 1938 when he had the task of
guarding Wilmeth Sidat-Singh, key
man in the Rens attack, when the
Wolverines nosed out Syracuse, 39-37.
Rae had a ready answer when the
writer asked him where he ranked the
New Yorkers. "The Rens are the best

a professional team move around so
much," he added. "In better shape
than most pro clubs, they always put
on a great show." The lanky ex-
Wolverine center gave a warning that
Sidat-Singh would cause the local
five some trouble. "He's fast, tricky,
and a good passer," Rae said, "and
takes most of his shots on pops from
the foul line. He sinks at least half
of them, too," he groaned.
Sidat-Singh gained a national repu-1
tation at Syracuse as All-American
basketball and grid star before joining1
the Rens. He had just one shot at
Michigan during his collegiate ca-
reer when the Wolverines made their
annual Eastern trip in 1938. It was on}
that trip that Thomas, one of the
best defensive guards to perform here
in recent years, held the colored
flash to 10 points in the My-higan
victory. Thomas added his warnings
about Sidat-Singh, picking the All-
American's shot-making skill for spe-
cial praise.
Scribes Rate Them Tops
The calibre of the rest of the Rens3
squad, called by New York writers
"the best in basketball today," is a
further tribute to Sidat-Singh's great-
ness. From Eyre "Bruiser" Saitch,
captain and veteran of the club, downl
to Bill "Pop" Gates, who moved into3
the lineup from a New York high
school team, the Rens have assembled,
the top colored stars in the world.
"Wee Willie" ,Smith, a six foot, six
inch, 225-pound giant, will face Rae
at center, and Clarence "Puggy" Bell,
an amazing shotmaker, and Zack
Clayton, showman of the team, add
color and skill to the Renaissance
Reutter Diving Champ
Immediately after competing in
the Fraternity relay trials at Yost
Field House last night, Bob Ruetter
of Sigma Chi traveled over to the
Sports Building to capture the diving
crown. Out of a possible 80 points,
Reutter garnered 56. Second place
went to Cliff Straehley of Chi Phi
with 52 points, while Frank Savage
of Phi Kappa Psi and Dale Parshall

Matmen Leave
To Face Lions
At Penn State
The Michigan wrestling team en-
ters the home stretch tomorrow night
when they meet a strong Penn State
squad at State College, Pennsylvania,
for the first of the last two dual meets
on the schedule.
The Penn Nittany Lions are carry-
ing a record of five victories and
one loss for the current season. Be-
sides taking one-sided wins over
Maryland, Syracuse and Cornell, the
Eastern squad has also beaten the
highly touted teams from Lehigh and
Navy. The only loss was incurred
at the hands of Princeton.
Leading the Penn team will be
Captain Frank Gleason and senior
Joe Scalzo. Gleason has been un-
defeated in dual meets in the last
two years. Thus far, he has a record
of five wins and no losses for this
season. In 1939 he was the Easterna
champion, and was runner-up last
year in the 136-pound dlass in the
same tournament.1
Scalzo was runner-up for the Na-
tional Collegiate championship, and
for the Eastern title in 1939 in the
155-pound division. Michigan's for-
mer captain, Harold Nichols, won
the national title in 1939. Scalzo's
record for 1941 is five wins and one
Penn has first year men in thel
121-pound class, 145-pound class,
175-pound class, and in the unlim-
ited division.
As the paper went to press lastt
night, Coach Cliff Keen had onlye
decided on nine of the possible ten
nen who would leave early this morn-1
ing. Tom Weidig, Ray Deane, Herbs
Barnett, John Paup, Art Paddy, Hap
Langstaff, Bill Courtright, Emil Lock-1
wood and Jim Galles. 128-pounder
Fred Klemach's leaving with thes
squad was uncertain.r
After the meet at State College,t
the Wolverines will embark for Ann-
apolis where they will engage Navy
in the last dual meet of the year.

Swim Or Study ...
A CHUNKY married man strolled
into the I-M pool yesterday after-
noon, peeled off his clothes and swam
a 100-yard freestyle in 57 seconds.
Nobody cheered or yelled a word
of encouragement when he lifted
himself out of the water, grabbed a
towel, and trudged wearily over to
a nearby bench. How could they
cheer? This same guy used to
swim the distance three or four
seconds faster. He even gained
All-America mention for the event
two years ago when he was a sopho-
more here.
He showed great promise at the
time, finished third in the Confer-
ence century and fifth in the Na-
tional Collegiates. The experts ex-
pected big things from the kid dur-
ing his last two years with the Wol-
BUT THOSE big things never
came, and never will, for husky
Bill Holmes . . . student, swimmer
and husband . . . threw in the towel
after yesterday's 57 second time trial.
"It just can't be done," he conclud-
ed. "Right now I'm working as hard
as I can to get into the psychology
clinic next year. After that, I will
be aiming for a doctor's degree. You
know how important grades are for
something like that. There just isn't
time enough in a day to remain in
the top of condition that swimming
-demands and still become a doctor."
That was no bluff either. De-
voting most of his time to the books
last semester, Holmes finished with'
eight hours of A and nine hours of
B. It was far better than he had
ever done before.
To the Double, the Holmes case'
brings back to mind a similar deci-
sion of a decade ago. The great'
George Kojac was burning up the
backstroke races at that time. Like
the Kiefer of today, he broke the
existing records as he pleased. But
in the middle of his brilliant career,
Kojac quit swimming to become a
successful physician. :,
WE CAN'T HELP feeling that it
was a far more wholesome deci-
sion than the one Frankie Parker
made when he quit Princeton to take
up tennis for a living.
Said Coach Matt . Mann last
night, "I'm tickled to death that
Bill is striving for something like

that. I know that if we ever need
him, he's the kind of a guy that
will come back to help us out."
Don Nichols, national 175-pound
mat champion last year, left for Cali-
fornia Saturday to take up transport
flying . . . Brother Harold, wrestling
captain two years back, has a coach-
ing job at a small Illinois high school
. . . More troubles for Fritz Crisler
Tackle Jack Butler, who also
was Michigan's chief heavyweight
wrestler, and fullback Bob Krejsa
have quit school to learn flying at the
marine training school down south
. . . This Krejsa is quite a change-
able lad . . . He went to North Car-
olina and Western Reserve University
before coming here for a year and
a half.
I Cagers End Season
At Ohio State; Mike
Sofiak Ranks Fifth
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's re-
awakened hoopmen climbed another
notch in the Conference standings
and were left with a mathematical
chance of landing in the first division
of the Big Ten race as a result of
their two weekend victories over Illi-
nois and Northwestern.
The Wolverines, who close their
season against Ohio State at Colum-
bus Saturday night, are resting in
seventh place at.present, but are only
one game behind the Buckeyes and
Illini, tied for fourth place in the
Wisconsin's 38-30 victory over In-
diana, Monday night, assured the
Badgers of at least a tie for the Con-
ference crown.
The leaders:

pro team in the business," he de-
clared. "Big, fast, and clever ball-
handlers, they really know what to
do with that ball. It's unusual to see
Hockey Team
Faces Strong
Gopher Squad
The perennially powerful Minne-
sota hockey team will invade the
Coliseum tomorrow night with the
avowed intention of giving Eddie
Lowrey's Wolverine outfit a few les-
sons in the gentle art of pushing a
puck around.-
The Gophers boast a season record
of nine victories, three defeats and
two ties. They came out on top four
times over Michigan Tech without
dropping a single game to the Husk-
ies. In these four games, the lads
from Minneapolis scored a total of
24goalsto 4 for the Upper Peninsula
Two Down So Far
Larry Armstrong's crew has beat-
en Michigan twice, by scores of 4-0
and 7-2, and the odds favor them to
leave Ann Arbor Sunday morning
with two more victories over the locals
safely tucked away.
The other three Minnesota victories
were gained over Illinois, Yale, and
the London A.C. Their three defeats
came at the hands of Yale and Il-
linois, the Illini downing them twice.
The Gophers also tied Illinois once
and their other stalemate came in
the second game of the season when
the London A.C. held them to a 3-3
Hopelessly outclassed on paper, the
Wolverines are determined to put up
a good battle against the Gophers.
A victory over this club would be even
sweeter than one over Illinois, even
though the Illini are considered one
of the best, if not the best, college
hockey teams in the country. Michi-
gan beat Illinois three times last
season but it has been three years
since the Maize and Blue Pucksters
last salted away a victoryl over Min-
Paulsen Paces Attack
Pacing the Minnesota attack are
two of the fastest wingmen in the
United States in the persons of Har-
old (Babe) Paulsen, the blond Vir-
ginia (Minn.) scoring king and Fred-
die Junger, diminutive speed mer-
chant from Minneapolis. They team
up on a starting first line with soph-
more center Bob Arnold who tallied
seven points on three goals and four
assists in the two games Michigan
played with the Gophers earlier in
the season.
