in the two encounters.
Heading an impressive list of Go-
pher defensemen is senior Ken
Cramp, a hard-checking back-line.
whose play against Michigan last sea-
son equalled that of his co-defense-
man, Rough and Ready Johnny Mari-
ucci, in the opinion of several of the
Wolverine players.
Ian Anderson plays beside, Cramp

Like Cramp, he is a senior and both

In the goal for the visitors is rookie
Burt Joseph who took over a Inan-

Joseph has held his opponents to 35
goals in 14 games which is better-

Jake Townsend and Tom Harmon

that ever blazed the name of Michi-

lines-will be back in action tomorrow
night when they lead the Townsend
All-Stars against the New York Ren-

WAA Swimming Pool Fund game.
And advance ticket sales for the
battle indicate that the attraction is
just what fans around Ann Arbor
have been looking for. All-American
Harmon hasn't displayed his wares
on the Field House court since he
led the Wolverine varsity in scoring
....as a sophomore, and Townsend, the
greatest ball-handler and passer in
the nation as an undergraduate, has
been absent as a player for much

7-4. Paup is again taking over Capt.
Bill Combs' fight.
Another fine match of the meet
should be between Penn State's Capt.
Frank Gleason and Michigan's sen-
sational sophomore, Ray Deane. In
his first season as a Wolverine 136-
pound grappler, Deane has lost only
one match. His loss was at the hands
of Michigan State's Leland Merrill,
who incidentially went on to pin Ok-
lahoma's NCAA champ, Al White-
hursh. Gleason, on the other hand,
has yet to be defeated in two years
of dual competition. He was the
Eastern champion in 1939..
In the 175-pound tussle, Michi-
gan's tricky Bill Courtright will pro-
bably face Joe' Valla who has been
a good first-year performer on the,
Lion's squad. Courtright uses a style
of wrestling that is not very commona
on the mat. He prefers to build up a
margin in points by take-downs and
f reverses than to work too much down
on the mat.

Lanky Bill Cartm
To Oosterbca
It's funny what one man can do for
a basketball team.
When the Wolverines lost the ser-
vices of forward Bob Fitzgerald ear-
lier in the season, the team went in-
to a hopeless tailspin, dropped six
1out of its first seven Conference
games, and landed with a ciash into
the Big Ten cellar.
All during that trying stretch,
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan shuttled
six different cagers into the vacated
position in a vain effort to locate suf-
ficient scoring punch to turn some
of those heartbreaking few-point set-
backs into victories.
And, ironically enough, after Mich-
igan .was hopelessly out of the run-
ning for the Conference title, Bennie
finally found his man.
It was lanky Bill Cartmill, freckle-
faced, red headed senior from Verona,
N.J., who stepped into the breach
and spelled the difference between
a Big Ten doormat and a team that
had something more than just five
players filling Maize and Blue uni-
The chestnut-topped beanpole, one
of the six failures at the troublesome
forward position earlier in the sea-
son, had been warming the bench
for a long time when the Wolverines
reached their lowest ebb in the deb-
acle against Northwestern about one
month ago.
Oosterbaan, having already tried
every able-bodied man on the squad
for the job, in desperation began
making the rounds all over again,
and called on Cartmill. This time
Bill clicked, and since that night, the
slender red-head has played the ma-
jor role in the rejuvenation of the
Varsity basketball team.
He's scored 57 points in sseven
games, an average of over eight points
per game; his clever passing and ag-
gressive floor game have injected a
new spark in the Wolverines' attack;
Earl Averill Signs
With Boston Bees
EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 26.-(A')-
Earl Averill, veteran major league
outfielder given his outright release
last winter by Detroit, said today he
had signed with the Boston Bees.
The Snohomish florist spent 12
years in the American League, all
with Cleveland, before going to De-
troit a year and a half ago. He said
an offer from the Baltimore Orioles

till Adds Spark I
Ins Cage LineupI
and, most important of all, Bill's
been an invaluable asset to the team
through his superb work in snagging
rebounds under both baskets.
Blessed with a pair of kangaroo
legs and an excellent sense of timing,
"The Wheel" has an uncanny knack
of shooting his six-foot, two-inch
frame up into the air to snag balls
from right under the noses of his
taller opponents. The Illini rarely
had a second shot at the hoop as a
result of Bill's masterful control of
the backboard.
Add to this Cartmill's happy facul-
ty of coming through with a basket
right at a crucial stage in the game,
and you have the answer to Michi-
gan's spectacular comeback after a'
hopeless start. The only flaw in Bill's
recent performances has been a slight
tendency to travel, but vith a pair of 1
size 14 feet-who could help it?
Cartmill, now enjoying his third
year on the Michigan cage squad
learned his basketball from his dad,
a coach at Montclair High School in
New Jersey, who twice squirmed in'
his seat on the bench while he
watched his offspring lead Verona to
victories over his own Montclair quin-

Bud Keetch Chosen
Head Cheerleader
At the final home basketball game
of the current season last Mondayk
evening, Robert 'Bud' Keetch, '42E,
was elected to the position of Wol-
verine head cheerleader for 1941, and
was introduced to the audience by
Art Treut, '41A, the retiring scream;
team leader.
Bud hails from Buffalo, N.Y.,J
where he attended Bennett High
School and there served on the
cheerleading squad. He is a mem-
ber of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity,
Scalp and Blade, and was recently
elected to All-American cheerlead-
ing honors by Gamma Sigma, Na-.
tional Honorary Cheerleaders' Frat-
ternity. Andy Ritter, '42E, and Art
Treut were also chosen as All-Ameri-
cans in the last election.

PATH: Michigan track followers got
a little better idea yesterday of the
tremendous task confronting th
Wolverines in next week's Conference
meet . . . statistics were revealed
which showed the Dohertymen have
lost performers who scored 16 3-7
of the 32 5-14 points they accumu-
lated in the individual events while
chalking up their seventh straight
indoor title last year . . . Indiana's
star-studded crew on the other hand
retains 23 6-7 points from its 1940
total . . . the Hoosiers did have an-
other four-point winner returning in
the person of two-miler Ed Hedges
. but you can find him doing his
running while on sentry duty in
Uncle Sam's army nw .
In Tesday's smashing triangu-
lar victory up at Michigan State
junior Al Thomas came through
with a very encouraging perform-
ance in the low hurdles and the
75-yard dash . . . A much herald-
ed scholastic ace from Detroit
Cooley, Thomas incurred a serious
ankle injuy in his initial appear-
ance as a Wolverine in last year's
Illinois Relays . . And through-
out the rest of the season the
speedster was bothered by weak
leg muscles.
At the start of the current indoor
campaign the plan was to run him
only in the 440-yard dash and the
relay in order to build up his legs .
then Tuesday he started for the first
time" in the shorter, more muscle-
straining events . . . in the dash
the Detroit lad nosed out teammate
Bud Piel, while in the low barrier
event he waged a hot duel with Mich-
igan Normal's great Whitey Had,
actually leading at the fou'rth hurdle
. the Huron finally won the deci-
sion by scant inches, but Thomas'
fine performance brightens Michi-
gan's hurdle prospects % : .
Quarter-miler Bob Barnard, who
performed in his specialty at East
Lansing, was spiked on the first
lap, faltered, then blazed' out in
front and won the race . . . after
returning to Ann Arbor it took
five stitches to close the. wound
. . . the fast-moving little senior
is definitely out of Saturday's Ohio
State meet, but he is expected to
be in top shape for the all-im-
portant Conference meet ...
Lanky Wes Allen, senior high-
jumper, added an encouraging note
to yesterday's practice when he
leaped 6 feet with comparative ease
after overcoming a former wat-
er-on-the-knee ailment, Allen suf-
fered another setback a month ago
when he severed a tendon in his hand
but now he is rounding into
good shape again . . . Warren Breid-
enbach, who copped a second in the
quarter in last year's Conference In-
door meet, was working out at the
Field House yesterday . . . but the
smooth-striding senior still has a
scholastic deficiency to make up .. .
Another 440 ace, big Jack Leutritz,
has been hampered by strined leg
muscles and will not see action
against the Buckeyes, but is expected
to be ready for the Conference.

Sidat-Singh and his amazing skill,
are a major attraction every timej
they appear. Besides the best in bas-
ketball, the troupe presents a colorful,
thrilling show wherever it plays.
Townsend, fully aware of the com-
petition his team will be up against,
has assembled a squad of ex-Michi-
gan stars that is strong enough to give
any club a battle. Back on the cburt
with Townsend and Harmon where
they made history as Wolverine stars
will be Charlie Pink, push-shot spec-
ialist; Eddie Thomas, scrappy little
guard; Jim Rae, tall, lanky passing
and shooting wonder; Herm Fishman,
the varsity's Mike Sofiak three years
