Keen Labels Wrestling Squad
As 'Most Promising In Years'

"Championship teams are 95 per
cent hard work" is one of the strong-
est beliefs of 'Wrestling Coach Cliff
Keen, and he's out for a champion-
ship team this year. As a result of
this the 55 boys who compose the
squad find plenty of hard work wait-
ing for them at practice every after-
Though it is still very early in the
season and the first dual meet is
more than a month away, Coach Keen
has already labeled this squad one
of the most promising in recent
years. With only a few exceptions
there are mat men in almost every
weight division who may easily de-
velop into champions.
Capt. Jim Galles is the one grap-
pler whom Keen is depending on
more than any of the others. Un-
defeated in dual meet competition
last year and Western Conference
175-pound champion, Jim is favored
to repeat both of these performances
this year. Three other returning let-
termen, Herb Barnett, Ray Deane,
and Bill Cofrtright are other import-
ant easons fo'r Keen's optimism.
With these four men as a nucleus,
Keen can choose from a large group
of untried matmen who have shown
much pronise in practice to fill the
other weight groups.,
Sophomores Dick Kopel Ind Vic
Wertheimer are competing for the
lightweight position. Another sopho-
more, Harold Rudel, may develop in
the 136-pound group. ,Jonny John-
son, Mel Becker and Mike Herwitz
are all capable of filling the 145-
* pound division, as are Pete Speek and

Managers Do
Unseen Work
For Gridders
Every Sunday the newspapers of
the country come forth with blazing
headlines telling of the feats of grid
stars. On Saturdays thousands ofI
people fill stadiums throughout the
country to see these headline heroes
perform. Behind these stars there is;
a vast organization which make their
play possible. An important part of
this system is the student football
- As in the other colleges of the na-
tion, this is true at Michigan. During
the week while the squad is practicing
under the direction of Coach Fritz,
Crisler and his aids, the student man-
agers are always very much in sight.
Before the team starts its daily prac-
tice, this bunch of boys goes about
its work of unloading the 100-pound
tackling dummies,, setting out the
blocking pads and arranging the hel-
mets and pigskins for the players.
Must Check Spectators
During the workout they have to
check with the spectators to make
certain that they all have passes and
while the squad is scrimmaging, they
have to handle the chains and check
the yardage.
When the squad finishes itso busi-
ness of the day and trots into the
Field House, the managers pile the
equipment back into the cartithat
they, use and tuck it away until the
next day. It is somewhat ofta praise-
less job, but they keep at it because
they all hope that they will eventually
land the senior manager's job.
Kline New Manager !
This year William Hurley was se-
nior manager. He made all the trips
with the team. On these trips Hur-
ley was responsible for all the money
for the players meals, lodging and in-
cidentals. This runs into several hun-
dreds of dollars. Next year this re-
sponsibility will fall on James Kline
and R[oward DeYoung, who will serve
as alternate. The group will be round-
ed out by Merritt Bigelow, Samuel
Emmons, Donald Howell, Robert
Oberfelder and Louis Froikin and the
1sophomore candidates.

Cowboy Crain Football Seniors Pick Careers
Sparks Mates Despite Chances Of Draft

Aggies Fail To Threaten
Victor's Goal In Ganie
Before Record Crowd
27.-(P)--Cold, brutal Texas blasted
Texas A. and M. off football's gloryE
road today in a bewildering reversali
of form and a startling repetition of1
Southwest Conference history. c
The hitherto undefeated, untied,
Aggies fell 23-0 before the Longhorns
as Cowboy Jack Crain sang his swan
song in conference play with a
rhythm of swishing feet.
Last Thankgiving Day, A. and M.
was defeated and untied and had 19
straight victories behind it. Crain
stepped in as field general for Texas
that day and sent the' twice-beaten
Longhorns to a 7-0 decision that
ranks as one of the great upsets of
college football history.
Today A. and M. entered the tradi-
tional game with eight straight wins,
holding the southwest conference
championship and boasting one of
the finest records in the nation, 28
victories'in 29 games..
Once-beaten and once-tied Texas,
which tumbled out of the nation's
No. 1 ranking 12 days ago when
deadlocked by lowly Baylor, engulfed
the Aggies in one of the most crush-
ing defeats in the 48-year-old series.
A crowd of 40,000--largest ever to
see a game here-jammed the stands.
The Aggies never seriously threat-
ened the Texas goal and advanced
but once to scoring territory. That
drive was stopped on the Longhorn 30.
Crain kicked a field goal to break
the ice in the second period. It came
dramatically with only 55 seconds be-
fore the end of the half. Jack stepped
back on the'16 and plunked the ball
through the goal posts from an angle.
In less than six minutes after the
start of the second half Texas had
13 more points.

Members of Michigan football
teams have often been confrontedt
with the perplexing problem of whats
profession to follow upon their grad-
uation from the University. Fortun-
ately (or unfortunately) for seniors
of this year's squad the question has
already been settled by a "career-
solving" device known as the draft.
Despite the generosity of the Fed-
eral Government in handling this
vocation-finding problem. though, the.
boys are making a few plans of their
own in case Uncle Sam forgets to
make hiss much hoped for appear-
ance. Here's what the boys will- do

Tulsa Eleven, 13-6
TULSA, Nov. 27.-(P)-Max Sall-

back, took charge in the moment of
Arkansas's greatest peril today to1
lead the Razorbacks to a 13-6 tri-
umph over Tulsa's Golden Hurricane,
its bitter Thanksgiving Day rival.
A capacity crowd of 17,000 saw the
big, red-clad Giants from the Ozarks
beat down Tulsa's great passing at-
tack and break a seven-game win-
ning streak.
Tulsa, trailing 7-0 at halftime, had
struck back with one 63-yard touch-
down drive and was again on the of-
fensive when Sallings went in. After
Frank Delmonego had cracked the
Hurricane line for a first down at
the 50, Sallings threw to Pitts for a
first down on the 37, then tucked
the ball under his own arm, broke
through tackle and raced to a touch-

The Rowdy Illini.
FROM out of the far north comes
the news that Larry Armstrong,
coach of the mighty Minnesota
hockey team, is burned up.
Before we let you in on the circum-
stances of Larry's current anger, we
ought to explain that, until last win-
ter, he had had a virtual monopoly
on Big Ten hockey championships.

There are only three schools in
the Conference supporting puck
teams, Minnesota, Michigan, and
Illinois. The Wolverines had fall-
en on evil days, the Illini were just
starting out in the hockey dodge
and that. left only Minnesota,
packed with rough, tough babies
who knew how to deal out punish-
ment with the best of themn, to
sweep over all opposition, year af-
ter year.
But last year the Gophers ran into
difficulty. This difficulty, in the
form of a great Illinois hockey team,
beat out the Gophers for the Con-
ference title, pouring what was in-
deed bitter tea into the formerly nec-
tar-filled cup of Mr. Armstrong.
It seems that a youngster named
Vic Heyliger, a former 'pupil of Mich-
igan's Coach Eddie Lowrey, had been
named to coach the Illinois ice ag-
gregations. Vic, it appears, wanted
to win hockey games. So, instead of
sitting around on his plush-covered
chair in the athletic office, he went
out and got some hockey players.
From all over they came pouring
into Champaign. There were a
couple of Canadians, four lads
from Springfield, Mass., and (much
to the dismay of the aforemen-
tioned Larry Armstrong) four
more from Minnesota's famous
Xlesabi Range, known as the na-
tion's finest producer of hockey
When Eddie Lowrey starts out to
mould a winning hockey team for
Michigan each fall, his first task is
to teach the boys to play hockey.
Such was not the case with the
young Illinois mentor. His boys al-
ready knew how to play hockey.

This left Vic plenty of spare time
and, since he was never one to sit
around twiddling his thumbs, he de-
voted a good deal of this time to in-
stilling in his players plenty of the
old moxie, fight and will-to-win.
THAT he was successful in this
endeavour was evidenced by
the conduct of his boys on the ice.'
They were rough and they were
tough and they brooked no denials
to their bid for the Big Ten crown.
But they weren't particularly dir-
ty. There are bound to be fouls in
hockey just because of the type of
game it is.
Now and then, there will even, be
an exchange of blows. But hockey
fights are known for their brevity
and are usually forgotten two min-
utes after they take place. It is a
rare case when a lasting grudge
springs from one of these battles. As
a matter of fact, it is unusual for
anyone to get hurt in a fight between
hockey, players.
But Illinois was rough and Larry
resented it. Now comes the advice
from 'Minneapolis that he plans to
take steps. "As long as Vic Heyliger
is coach at Champaign," Armstrong
rages, "no team of mine will ever
play against Illinois."
Interesting, that. And quite a
coincidence, too. In the very year
that Illinois comes up with lads
who answer to the names of Aldo
and Mario Palazzari, Elio and Ser-
gio Gambucci, Norbert Sterle (ob-
viously an alias) etc., all of whom
hail - from Hibbing, Eveleth or
points nearby, up in the territory
from which the Gophers have tra-
ditionally drawn their ice talent,
Armstrong decides the Illini play
dirty hockey and that he wants no
truck with them.
If the Gophers confine their sched-.
ule to Michigan, Western Ontario
and various other teams with names
like Split Lip (Ont.) Athletic Club,
East Windsor Auto Parts and the
Down-In-The-Mouth Land Crabs
(for, sad to relate, these are the type
of teams college sextets must play
when there is no collegiate competi-

tion), they will probably be. unde-
feated, untied, unscored on and com-
pletely uninipressive.
Come come, Mr. Armstrong, rein-
state the poor Illini (who have, al-
ready this year, if you hadn't heard,
held the Kansas City professional
team to a 2-1 victory). If you do,
you will probably be beaten. But, if
you don't, you will look like some-
thing of a fool. There's still time.
FOUL TIPS: Lou B6udreau's ap-
pointment to the managership
of the Cleveland Indians is already
having repercussions ... our young
brother has already had offers from
the Baltimore and Sacramento
clubs .. . the!Orioles want him for
vice-president of their organization
. the Coast League club would
like to put him in charge of their
scouting system ... he's declining
both offers, explaining he wants to
finish junior high school before
turning pro.
Rumor has it that, should Del
Baker get the gate at Detroit after
the 1942 season, Michigan'skDick
Wakefield has the inside track for,
the Tiger managerial post .. . and,
say, wouldn't that be something?
The United States Lawn Tenhis
Association, which has been called a
small body of small men with large
badges, finds itself in trouble .. . it
seems that the nation's first two am-
ateur netmen have decided to accept
checks for their services . . . this
makes them professionals. . - and
leaves the USLTA without any cham-
pion or runner-up . . . a touching
state of affairs . . . for everyone ex-
cept Bobby Riggs and Frank Kovacs,
who probably consider themselves
well out of a lot of grief . . . and into
something pretty good.
