The Double Predicts.. .
THE DOUBLE sneaks out on a long
and creaky limb today.
Fear not, dear readers, and beg,
borrow and chisel your roommate for
all you can get your hands on to
go along with these predictions. No
doubt you all can remember how well
we did on our selections during the
football season. Oh, blast that half-
breed Chandler and all his confound-
ed luck.
At any rate, we went into an ex-
tended trance last eve, empoyed all
the science weilearned in our Cre-
ative Listening course, and came out
with the following irst-hand info.
ble's long shot winner):
Matt Mann's natators in the swim
meet at Iowa City with a grand total
of 83 points.
info only for the closest friends).:
Ken Doherty's cindermen in the
track meet at Lafayette with a total
of 43 points. Indiana will finish sec-
ond with 41 points.
(We hope to be wrong):
Cliff Keen's wrestlers will finish
two points behind the Hoosiers in
the Columbus meet.
FOR THOSE of you who wit-
nessed that smooth skating
Illinois quintet in the Colisieum
last night, sit back and relax.. ..
There is more to come . . . Word
from Champaign tells us that
Coach Heyliger's freshmen wal-
loped the Varsity 8-2 in a practice
game earlier this week . . . Ain't
it funny how many Canadians and
New England laddies decided to
go to Illinois during the past few
Iincidentally, Heyliger is sporting a
bandaged hand,. . He was scrim-
magingwith his squad two weeks ago
sans padding. . . One slam into the
boards and one broken tootsie . .
Ray Killen, the Illini goalie, was
wearing a pair of Chicago Black-
hawk socks during last night's scram-
ble . . . a pure case of subsidization
according to the Double's standards.
DENIED HIS eligibility by the
school officials yesterday, wrest-
ling Captain Bill Combs will prob-
ably leave school in the very near
future . . . He needed a credit in
the flunked course in order to get
his diploma this June ... Combs is
considering joining gridders Bob
- Krejsa and Jack Butler in the Ma-
rine aviation training school down
south. Michigan will miss this guy
Combs ... He was one of the most
colorful and affable athletes around
A wild-westerner by nature
and origin, the M-Club president
early this year bucked broncos un-
der an assumed name in a Detroit
rodeo . . . He didn't want Coach
Keen to know that he would take
a chance like that before the wrest-

ling season got under way. , Combs
will accompany his teammates to
Columbus today to cheer them on.

Matt Mann and his crack natators

row in the Conference championships

Show us the real reason why the

meet with Michigan.
Wilson Hits At Chicago
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., March 6.-()-
Wendell S. Wilson, University of Il-
linois athletic director, said tonight
that "Big Ten athletic directors, my-
self included, made a mistake last
year in riot booting Chicago out of
the Con erence."

period, they broke through the visi-
tors' defense to go into a 1-0 lead.
Bert Stodden stole the puck at his
own blue line and skated down the
right bank into the corner from where
he passed out to center Paul Gold-
smith, who faked goalie Ray Killen
out of position and pushed the disc
into the cords.
The Wolverines held the lead for
almost 20 minutes and it wasn't until
the eighth minute of the second
frame that the visitors tied it up on
a pass from Bessone to Lotzer, who
fired the puck past Hank Loud, the
Michigan net-minder.
The locals' defense tightened at
this point and they succeeded in hold-
ing their speedier opponents score-
less for the remainder of the period.
r With the score knotted at 1-1 going
into the third, it loked as though the
Wolverines were in a fair way to
spring a major upset but almost be-
fore the idea had time to crystallize
in the minds of the spectators, the
Illini had gone into a two-goal lead.
The sensational Norbert Sterle
scored without aid just 21 seconds af-
ter the period opened and Gil Priest-
ley added another at 1:13. The Mich-
igan players collected their wits and
began playing wifth some semblance of
order then and the Illini were held
without another tally for over 10 min-
utes, until Joe 'Gannon made the
score 4-1 with Starr Owen getting an
assist on the play.
With about five minutes to play,
sophomore Bob Fife was sent to the
penalty box for board-checking be-
tween the blue lines and the Illinois
scoring machine really began to func-
tion. While the Michigan wing was
out, the visitors dented the laces
three times with Howie Kopel, Gan-
non and Priestley doing the work,
the last on an assist from Sterle.

Indiana Menaces Varsity Track Rule;
Tankmen RankedAs HeavyFavorites

(Continued from Page 1)
Kane and Archie Harris, that may
score as high as five first places, In-
diana is almost unanimously rated
as the team to beat.
Undefeated in its dual meet sea-
son, Michigan is pinning hopes for a
surprise victory on its traditional
team balance. With only one first
place winner of last year returning,
Capt. Don Canham in the high jump,
the Maize and Blue outfit will have
to score points in almost every event
to overcome the Hoosiers.-.
A Two-Team Fight
Although the other eight Confer-
ence squads, notably Ohio State, Wis-
consin and Purdue, possess scattered
strength, pre-meet dopesters have
discounted the possibility of anything
but a two-team fight. But these other
competing crews have one all-im-
portant function-they hold the bal-
ance of power. For the final outcome
is all wrapped up in the second, third,
fourth and fifth place winners.
Tonight's qualifying trials will send
the host of thinclads into action in
the 60-yard dash, 440-yard dash,
high and low hurdles, half-mile, shot
put and broad jump events. This pro-
gram wil severely test the endurance
power of Hoosier Cochran and Mich-
igan's Al Thomas, both of whom are
slated to see extra duty in the two
dashes and the low hurdles.
And this is where Wolverine bal-
ance may count heavily. For the Do-
hertymen could withdraw Thomas
from either the 60 or the 440 without
being seriously crippled, but the Hoos-
iers will be almost forced to run their
ace four times, twice in the quarter-
mile trials and semi-finals and twice
in the low barrier trials and semi-
finals. Then tomorrow he will have to
perform again in his two specialties
as well as the relay.
McCarthy In Three Events
Other Wolverine cindermen who
will see action in the quarter are
Bob Ufer, Bob Barnard, and Bill Dob-
son, while half-milers Warren Breid-
enbach, John Kautz and Jack Dobson
will go against Hoosier Campbell
Kane, in trials reducing the 880 field
to nine.
Maize and Blue sophomore Frank
McCarthy will run both hurdle events
tonight as well as broad jump, while
senior Jeff Hall will race over both
high and low timbers. In the 60,
junior Al Piel will carry most of the
burden for the Dohertymen against
Northwestern's favored Myron Piker
and Minnesota's George Franck.
Then tomorrow comes the final{
showdown. Wolverines Bill Ackerman
and Karl Wisner have both been en-
tered in the two-mile in an effort to
counteract some of Indiana's concen-
trated distance strength. That leaves;
Herb Leake and John Purdue to face
the favored Kane and Purdue's Ed
Holderman in the mile.
In the field events, a crucial pole-
vault duel between Michigan's Char-
lie Decker and Wisconsin's Bill Wil-
liams may possibly crack the Big Ten1
record, while husky Bob Hook and
Tommy Lawton are Michigan's best
bets in the shot put against Harris,t
the overwhelming favorite-,
With the championship possibly
at stake the mile relay will wind upt
the meet tomorrow night. Michigan'st
foursome will consist of Ufer, Bill<
Dobson, Barnard and Thomas.

-ontested Buckeye-Wolverine clashes
for the Conference crown. Coach
Mann's all-around strength stands
out in this meet like Joe Louis in a
prize fight ring. Aside from National
Ccllegiate champion Earl Clark, and
a young blond sophomore named
Frank Dempsey, both divers, sly old
Mike Peppe doesn't have a sting in
his whip that could cause the Wol-
verines too much trouble.
Seek New Record
With a star-studded crew that in-
cludes three defending champions,1
Charley Barker in the 50-yard free
style, Gus Sharemet in the century
and backstroker Francis Heydt,
Michigan is expected to easily crack1
their own scoring record of 73 points
set two years ago in Lafayette, Ind.
Besides these three aces, Coach
Mann has a host of other lads around1
who can be counted on to finish close
to the front. As far as the two relay
events go, Michigan can't be whipped.
In the medley, Heydt will team up
with sophomore sensation Jim Skin-
ner, the AAU outdoor breaststrokef
champion and Clare Morse in a trio
that can easily outdistance any pos-
sible combination in the Conference.
Skinner is favored to cop the breast-
stroke crown despite the presence of
Iowa's own youthful speedster, Al
Povilaitis, who defeated Skinner here
in a dual meet two weeks ago.
Middle Distance Strength !
In the middle distance events,
Michigan's overwhelming strength
will not be matched. Jim Welsh,
forced out of last year's competition ?l
by an attack of lobar pneumonia, will
be gunning for new Conference
marks in both the 220 and 440-yard
races and a sophomore teammate,
Jack Patten, will probably be chasing
him both times. Finals in all of the
events will be held Saturday night.
Entries for the Graduate Hand-
ball, Badminton and Squash Tour-
naments close at'5:30 p.m. today.
They may be phoned in to the
Sports Building.

est job of all. He will eventually have
to face Indiana's Conference champ-
ion, Angelo Lazzara, and that's no
mean task for a first-year man. Pad-
dy will also have a dificult job, for
Minnesota's Captain Jannesko is com-
peting at the same weight.
Illinois, Purdue Strong
Two teams, Illinois and Purdue,
could easily aid Michigan without
putting themselves in any particulaly
dangerous position. Purdue has key
men in two classes---121-pounds and
136-pounds. In the lighter weight
both Indiana and Purdue have na-
tional champions. If Purdue's Casey
Fredericks can upset Indiana's Bob
Antonacci, and he could, a wide
disbursement of points can easily re-
sult. 136-pounder Ben Wilson of In-
diana will have to dispose of the Riv-
eter's Jack Foster. Although both men
are champs in their own rights, Wil-
son has already defeated Foster in
a dual meet this year. The outcome
of this tussle will also have a great
bearing on the final team scores.
Illinois, has two key men on their
squad. Their heavyweight, John Si-
kich, should have his own way in the
meet, although Larry of Minnesota is
tough. But their 128-pounder, Paul
Petry, will be pitted against Indiana's
Joe Sparks. Give or take, this should
be a close match.
Count On Paup, Barnett
In addition to those mentioned
above, the following Wolverines will
participate: Tom Weidig, 128-pound-
er; Herb Barnett, 136-pounder, and
John Paup, 145-pounder. Paup and
Barnett have the best chances to
pick up very much needed points.
There is only one outstanding 145-
pounder in the Conference-Ohio
State's Captain Tony Montonaro. But
there are enough other good men to
give Paup trouble. Barnett is classi-
fied as a wrestler who "has it," but
he has yet to come through this year

Conn Wins By Kayo,
Stops Hassett In Fifth
WASHINGTON, March 6.-(')-
Billy Conn passed another way sta-
tion on the heavyweight buildup trail
tonight by knocking out Danny Has-
sett, pudgy Philadelphian, in the fifth
round. Conn weighed 181, Hassett
The Pittsburgh Profile, who is step-
ping out as king of the light heavy-
weights 'to qualify for a June title
bout with Heavyweight Champion Joe
Louis, put Hassett away with a short
left afterr35 seconds of thehround.
Hassett tried to get up when 'the
count reached eight but got only to
his knees.
Fraternity, Dorm
Swimmers Qualify
Phi Delta Theta, Psi 'Upsilon and
Chi Phi each placed three men in
the finals of the fraternity swimming
championships as a result of the pre-
liminaries held last night in the
Sports Building pool.
With fourteen teams entered, the
preliminaries proved to be one of the
closest and most exciting in several
years. It was not until the last event
had taken place that the team leader
was known.
Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma Chi
each placed two men and two relay
teams in the finals, while the remain-
ing 9 fraternities placed 11 men in all.
Wenley House nosed out Williams
32 to 29, in the semi-finals of the
Residence Hall swimming meet and
thus earned the right to meet Adams
House in the finals, also at the Open
House. Adams sank Chicago earlier
in the evening by the score of 36
to 25.
with his stuff. Maybe this time he is
ready-and a mighty good time too.
Of all the Michigan grapplers,
Weidig is the biggest possible dark-
horse: On the recent trip East, he
looked like a world-beater. But' 1s
great inconsistency raises doubt as
to his chances to pick up any points.
Another fact that must be remem-
bered is that both Iowa and Minne-
sota have been terrific this year
against non-Conference teams. Min-
nesota has lost only one meet to
Oklahoma A. & M., so their poten-
tialities are practically unknown.

Ex-Circus Star
To e Hi hight
Of OpenHous
Once again this year the Intra-
mural Department will throw open
doors of the Sports Building to the
public at the Thirteenth Annual Op-
en House to be held next Wednesday
night, March 12.
Highlights of the evening's festiv-
ities, which will feature 26 different
sports in action, will be Tierra Koski,
and his ladder balancing act. Koski,
an ex-circus performer, will do a
number of difficult tricks while stand-
ing at the top of a 16-foot ladder
which he himself is balancing. He will
perform twice during the course of1
the evening.
Second of the evening's main at-
tractions is the badminton exhibition
to be put on by members of the De-
troit Badminton Club. Mr. and Mrs.
Walter Kramer, Mr. and Mrs. Everett
Gesaman, Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Burns,
Constance O'Donovan, Steve Warren,
and Resse Cramer will all demon-'
strate badminton techniques and
play a few exhibition matches. Kra-
mer is a former National Champion
and has teamed with Burns to win
several doubles crowns.
The Residence Hall, Independent,
and Fraternity "A" teams will play
in the basketball finals. Chicago
House is slated to tangle with Michi-
gan House for the Dorm title, while
the other finalists have yet to be
chosen. Between the halves of these
games the gymnasts will entertain
the crowd with their work on the
horizontal bars.
Also scheduled to appear on the
Open House card are the finalists in
the Residence Hall wrestling tourn-
ament. Between each bout, a boxing
match will take place.
