had taken by half time proved too
difficult for the Varsity to overcome,
despite the Wolverines' improved per-
formance in the second half which
found them outscoring the visitors,
24-18.
In the last period, with the score-
board showing 18-28 the game was
beginning to look like a runaway for
Coach Doug Mills' five, but two ex-
cellent short shots by Morrie Bikoff
chatged the picture. Bikoff, sub-
stituting for Bill MacConnachie,
sandwiched a foul shot in between
his baskets to make the score 23-28.
Illini Pull Away
The Illini put on the pressure as
Andy Phillip and Vance made goals
from far out on the floor to give
tle Orange and Blue a 32-23 lead.
Later on in the same period Mel
Comin substituted for Capt. Bill
Cartmill, who was troubled by his
injured ankle. Comin stole the show
during the last part of the game
with some exceptional offensive and
defensive maneuvers.
The first time Comin handled the
ball he sank a basket from the cor-
ner of the floor, to make it 33-39.
Gibert then came through with his
last basket of the night by making a
difficult hook shot. Later as Illinois
came up the floor Comin stole the
ball from Vance and passed to Doyle
who dropped in a one-handed shot.
Comin Gains Applause
With the score 37-44, "Comin the
Cunning" sank a remarkable basket
from the foul circle that brought ap-
plause from the 3,500 fans who wit-
nessed the game.
Shortly after that Mandler made a
foul shot that ended the game.
High scorer for Michigan was Jim
Mandler. The lanky center scored
nine markers, but was fourth among
the high point men of the contest.
Illini Vance and Phillip had 12 points
apiece, while their teammate Victor
Wukgvitz tallied 10 points.

from play-maker Braidford and
countered his second goal.
At 17:20 in the same period, Max
Bahrych, skating just over the blue
line at center ice, sent the puck sing-
ing into Point Edward's nets which
gave 'Michigan a three-goal lead at
the end of the first period.
Fans Get Treat
The first eight minutes of play in
the second period were some of the
wildest seen at the rink. During this
span of time; every man tasted ice
at least once. The crowd went wild.
And so did the puckmen. At 8:28
playing-coach Charley Levan of the
Point Edward club gave his team
their first score of the game. Len
Rutter added another six minutes
later to narrow the score down to
3-2, in favor of Michigan.' Ted Gar-
vin, at 18:34, tied up the score at
three-all. Every Canadian. marker
was made unassisted.
darly in the third period, Bahrych
missed a swell chance to score when.
he was all alone close to the Point
Edward nets. Goldsmith, however,
added a third goal to his night's ef-
fort to give his team a 4-3 advantage.
Ollie Haddon then tied the score
again, less than a minute later
(8:38).
Tie Broken
At this point the final surge set
in. At one time during the last three
minutes Point Edward had two men
in the penalty box, and the Wolver-
ines had one. Then it came. Tom
Prudence, all alone over the blue line,
sent a long high one into the Michi-
gan nets and gave the Canadians

USGA Drops
GolfTourneys
Links Officials Act To Aid
National Defense Effort
NEW YORK, Jan. 10.--(P)-The
United States Golf Association aban-
doned all four of its national cham-
pionships today in order to focus its
entire attention on the nation's war
effort. ,
After cancelling its 1942 tourna-
ment program, the governing body
of golf immediately went into action
in behalf of the government, chang-
ing the USGA by-laws to permit
amateurs to receive up to $100 in de-
fense bonds and stamps as prizes in-
stead of cups and trophies, planning
a nation-wide series of club tourna-
ments on holidays, and proposing
exhibition matches for war relief
and defense.
The sweeping action was the most
drastic regimentation for the support
of the war any national sports gov-
erning body has yet taken.
The 1942 championships cancelled
were:
National Open, June 18-20, Inter-
lochen Country Club, Minneapolis.
National Amateur, September 7-12,
Del Monte Golf and Country Club,
Pebble Beach Course, Del Monte,
Calif.
Women's Amateur, September 21-
26, Southern Hills Country Club,
Tulsa, Olda.
National Public Links, July 27-
August 1, Willshire Municipal Golf
Course, Denver, Colo.
This action was dec'ed upon by
the executive committee yesterday
and approved by the association to-
day. Several reasons were advanced
for the course, which duplicated the
USGA's cancellation of its national
tournaments during the lash World
War.
First was the desire of the officers'
to give their complete attentions to
exhibitions and other golf competi-
tion for the benefit of war charities.
Second -was the belief that the
competitions themselves would not
have been of championship calabre.
Military service already has claimed
most of the leading amateur golfers

Joe Set To Fight For Army:
Louis Quits Trunks For Khaki,
Joins U.S Forces Wednesday

By HOE SELTZER
Michigan and Penn State upheld
tradition yeserday afternoon.
In a wrestling meet studded with
four crowd-pleasing wins on falls and
the unbelievable performance of a
sophomore making his varsity debut,
the Wolverines turned back a power-
ful Nittany Lion team by the score
of 19-13.
Each team scored two falls. State
in the 121 pound and heavyweight
divisions and Michigan in the 165
and 175 pound classes.
But the highlight of the meet, in
Coach Cliff Keen's eyes at least, was
the remarkable job turned in by
sophomore Mary Becker in his match
with Capt. Glen Alexander of the
Lions.
The story of it is a Frank Merri-
well. Pitted against the most ex-
perienced man on the enemy squad
in his first collegiate bout, Marv
went on the defensive at first, and
with his weel-like abiliy to slip out
of holds managed to hold the score
to a 6-6 stalemate at the end of
six minutes. Then in the final three
minutes he abruptly switched into an
offensive dynamo and attacked the
tiring State captain with such fury
that he piled up point after point on
go-behinds and swept the match,
13-8. A brilliant debut.
The swiftest and most astonishing
fall of the day came when the visi-
tors' heavyweight, Jack Kearns, sud-
denly exploded from a disadvantage
position to thud Johnny Green to the
mat and down him with 240 pounds
worth of "very thorough body press.
The time was 2:29.
It was expected that Capt. Jim
Galles of the Wolverines would have
no trouble with inexperienced Bob
Morgan of State. He didn't. Morgan
was prostrate on the mat in 2:59,1
levelled by a combination arm hook
and body chancery.
The other Michigan fall Vas scored
by Bill Courtright, which also does
not come under the head of a sur-
prise bulletin. Corky simply demon-
strated that it's true what they say
about Courtright. The dogged ob-
stinacy of State's Ralph Sayre was
simply no match for the demonstra-
tion of speed, strength and wrestling
savvy he was pitted against, and at
the end of 5:09 he succumbed to a
keylock.
Two of the contests were terrifi-
cally lopsided affairs. Vic Werthei-
mer got his first taste of competitive
wrestling of any sort whatever by
being tossed into the arena to meet
a very businesslike Eastern Inter-
collegiate 121 pound champ by the

name of Charlie Ridenour. Vic's
shoulders were finally cemented to
the=mat in 4:31.
The other no-contest tussle was
Herb Barnett's batch-as-catch-can
affair with Penn State's 145 pound
representative, Gardner Lindzey,
which Herb won by a decisive 15-2
score.
In the 136 pound match Ray Deane
spent nine boring minutes astride the
back of State's Clair Hess and copped
a 15-6 decision.
Sophomore Sam Harry of State
College had too much height and
wiriness for sophomore Dick Kopel
of Michigan, and Dick dropped a
17-8 match in the 128 pound tilt.
Although each of the coaches ad-
mitted he had detected in the per-
formances of his charges several glar-
ing errors which need correction,
both mentors expressed themselves
as pleased in general with the show-
ings of their boys.
Naturally Cliff Keen was somewhat
more pleased than Charlie Speidel.
Kansas State Next
Do Cliff Keen's scrappy matmen
get a well-earned rest after their
decisive defeat of a rugged Penn
State outfit?
Yes-they do not.
At 7:30 p.m. Monday night- the
Varsity meets the Kansas State
wrestling team in the Field House.
And if Penn State and the home
boys put up a crowd-pleasing show
yesterday, the clash Monday should
make its predecessor look like a tea
dance. Kansas State is the Big Six
wrestling champion, and the Big Six
denotes that region where the dis-
tinction between a half nelson and
a full johnson is early taught to
babes in arms. The region from
which stemmed Farmer Burns and
Frank Gotch as well as the greatest
collegiate wrestlers of today.
The point is clear. The Big Six
is the wrestling center of these Unit-
ed States. And Kansas State is the
current champion of this district.
Come down and see these fabulous
athletes perform. Seven-thirty it
is, Monday night.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL SCORES

NEW YORK, Jan. 10.-(R)-Less
than 24 hours after doing a pretty
fair fighting job for the Navy, Joe
Louis completed arrangements today
to join Uncle Sam's Army next Wed-
nesday and do his battling in khaki
from here on.
The Brown Bomber, who reached a
peak in his blasting career for the
second time last night in felling Bud-
dy Baer in 2 minutes and 56 sec-
onds, will be given his final physical
examination Monday, will be induc-
ted in the service Wednesday at
Camp Upton, Long Island, and prob-
ably will make his next, fist-tossing
start in late March for an Army
fund.
Pastor Is Probable Opponent
This one will be against one of a
list of prospective opponents promo-
ter Mike Jacobs has drawn up,
headed by Bob Pastor, who fought
Joe twice and who was rated by box-
ing writers as the top fistic comeback
for 1941.
Joe turned up at Army draft board
headquarters to straighten out all
the advance details that will make
him Private Joe Louis Barrow even
before he stopped at Jacobs' office
to settle up for last night's fight. Not
that he had anything to collect out
of the gross gate of $189,700.55 con-
tributed by the 18,870 fans who saw
him become the vicious executioner
and blasting executioner for the sec-
ond time since he came down the
pike. He was once more the fierce
flailer of the second Max Schmeling
fight, and the oldest inhabitants of
Cauliflower Alley couldn't remember
when any fighter hit such heights
twice in his career.
Gave Whole Purse To Navy
This time Joe disregarded all prin-
ciples of the fighters' union by put-
ting his title on the line and his dy-
namite on display for nothing. He
and promoter Mike Jacobs turned all
their revenue from the show over to
the Navy Relief Fund. Baer con-
tributed a chunk of his. Every pre-
liminary fighter on the card also
chipped in with various sums and the

officials worked for half price. For
all the job he had to do last night,
referee Franklin Fullam was lucky
he wasn't on a piecework contract.
His chief task was to count to ten
when Buddy went down the third
time. As a result of all the donations,
the Navy fund picked up a check
within shouting distance of the six-
figure mark.
Joe settled up the Army business
with the tsame simple, fine gesture
with which he did the job for the
Navy Relief Fund last night. Without
informing anyone but his co-man-
agers and Jacobs, he arrived at the
offices of Local Draft Board No. 20,
asked for a transfer of examination
and induction from Chicago, where
he registered, and then voluntarily
waived all rights to any notices or
delays in order to get it settled as
soon as possible.
"I was goin' in anyway," he ex-
plained simply, "so I figured I might
as well get it all done at once right
now. I dunno what they're gonna
do with me, but it don't make much
difference."
