Record As Wolverines
Win, 77 2/3 -26 1/3
(Continued from Page 1)
Michigan was at full strength for the

sprint ace, Hap Stickel, and the Wol-
verines competing without their cap-
tain, Al' Piel, also suffering from an
Continuing his red-hot pace of the
still embryonic season, Michigan's
wing-footed quarter-miler, Bob Ufer,
tied the meet and Field House record

set by Pitt's Johnny Woodruff in
1937. Sprinting all the way, Ufer

Carter Ties Record
Pittsburgh's flashy Bill Carter, who
tied the American indoor record for
the 60 yard dash last year in the
sensational time of 6.1 seconds, was
the only double winner for the Pan-
thers, sweeping to wins in the sprint
event and in the broad jump. Com-
peting against Michigan's ace sprint-
er, Al Thomas, in the 60 yard dash,
the speedy Panther broke out of the
starting blocks like a projectile shot
from a gun, and blazed his way to
a one-step victory over Thomas, ty-
ing the meet record of 6.3 seconds inj
the event.
Besides the mile race in which Will
Ackerman, Ernie Leonardi, and John
Ingersoll took three top places for
the Wolverines, Michigan runners
also swept all nine points in the 880
yard run. In what was probably the
best race of the evening, Johnny
Kautz and John Roxborough battled
it out all the way to the finish tape,
with Kautz finally crossing the line
just a step ahead of the Wolverine
sophomore half-miler.
Johnny McKean, with a first place
in the two-mile run, and Gene
Hirsch, who nosed out big George
Ostroot in the shot put, won their
first Michigan varsity letters last
night, as did Buel Morley dnd George
Pettersen, members of the winning
mile-relay team.
Doherty Experiments
Using the meet to a large extent
as a proving ground for next week's
Big Ten meet, Coach Ken Doherty
experimented all along the line, shift-
ing his charges from their accus-
tomed events into other races in an
effort to ascertain the best combi-
nations to use against the other Con-
ference teams at Chicago. In such
a move, Dave Matthews, top half-
miler of the Wolverine squad, checked
out of his favorite distance last night
to anchor the mile-relay team to a
25 yard victory over the Panthers.

i Michigan Rumour Wave
Y Ye Ed Analyzes:
Daily Sports Editor
OUT OF THE FLOOD of rumour, speculation and confusion that dipped
clibrally into printers' ink yesterday in newspapers from coast to coast
concerning the possibility that Athletic Director Herbert O. (Fritz) Crisler
was headed for a key assignment in the nation's military program stand a
few concrete facts.
Local observers of the Michigan athletic scene have known for
some time that several members of the Wolverine coaching staff had
taken physical examinations for naval positions, that some had made
application for physical education posts with United States armed
forces, and that others had definitely been contacted by government
officials on the subject.
YESTERDAY the Ann Arbor News tied all the loose facts and some con-
jecture together and made the speculatory whole its lead story on page
one under an eight column banner with large pictures of Crisler, Ernie Mc-
Coy, Cliff Keen and Ray Roberts. Crisler, the News story declared, will
probably be directing a physical education program for Uncle Sam "within
the next two weeks."
The Associated Press picked up the story before the News ever hit
the newsstands, and, after carefully quoting the source, put it on their
national trunk wire where it was circulated throughout the country.
Another news service became so excited they broke their finest pair of
clipping shears. And in their bulldog edition last night the Detroit
Free Press speculated on the possibility that Line Coach Clarence Munn
may take over the head coaching reins if Fritz does leave.
NOW-THE PRIME QUESTION IS: Just what is true? Where does fact
end and rumour begin?
After a thorough investigation these things stand out: Fritz has been
approached from two angles, the Bureau of Aeronautics of the Navy and the
Great Lakes Training Station at Chicago. He admits this, but declines fur-
ther comment other than declaring that he stands ready to do his best to
serve both his nation and the University to the utmost of his ability.
Reports have it that Great Lakes is seeking Crisler to serve the !
double role of heading its entire physical education program and coach
its football team, which will probably include such former gridiron
greats as Minnesota's Bruce Smith, Michigan's Ed Frutig and the Chi-
cago Bears' George McAfee.
THE PROPOSAL from the Bureau of Aeronautics to Crisler is said to offer
him a lieutenant commandership in charge of the athletic training
course at one of the four centers to be established for naval aviation cadets.
Under the setup which has been announced by the Bureau from Washing-
ton four sites will be founded at which the cadets will undergo a rigorous
three-months program of physical education before their actual flight train-
ing. The University of Iowa is the Midwestern center, St. Marys College in
California the Far West, University of Georgia in the South, and either the
University of North Carolina, Harvard or Penn State in the East.
The question of whether any action would be forthcoming "with-
in the next two weeks," as reported, could not be pinned down last
night. Authoritative sources, however, indicated that this time limit is
way out of line with actual fact, that if a move is made, it will be quite
some time ,n the future.
OTHER MATTERS that fall under the heading of definite fact are: wrest-
ling coach Cliff Keen, assistant basketball coach Ernie McCoy, and
Trainer Ray Roberts all took their physical examinations at naval head-
quarters in Chicago last week along with Wolverine gridmen Bob Ingalls,
Bob Flora, Whitey Fraumann and Bob Westfall.
McCoy declared positively yesterday, however, that he has not applied
for any kind of an appointment. "It's news to me," Ernie stated, after
learning that the News had printed: "McCoy might head up the basketball
program at the University of Iowa."
Likewise Roberts had no definite word, although he was willing to
tell all the leadup developments to the report. Tom Hamilton, lieuten-
ant commander of the naval physical education program, sent Ray a
letter asking if he would be interested in such a setup. Roberts wrote
back that he would be proud to aid iis country all he could, declaring
that he hoped it would not interfere with his future at the University.
He took the physical exam with the rest, shot in his application papers,
and is now awaiting confirmation from Washington.
NEITHER ROBERTS nor McCoy could understand the News' statement to
the effect that: "None of these coaches, however, had any disclosure to
make today in regard to his future plans." Both declared they had not been
contacted by the News:
Mentioned for one of the posts in the national physical education
program, also, is Mat Mentor Keen. More specifically, Cliff is reported
headed for Iowa to teach the cadets fundamentals of wrestling. Keen
took his team to Ohio State yesterday afternoon, however, and could
not he reached for comment.
ONE LAST FACT: President Alexander G. Ruthven declared last night
that Crisler has not asked for a leave of absence. From this point on,
it's all speculation.

With the local hockey following
yet to see a Maize and Blue tri-
umph, Michigan's puck team will at-
tempt to ring up its second Big Ten
victory - and the second of the
season - against Minnesota at 8:30
p.m. tonight in the Coliseum.
When the Gophers came to Ann
Arbor two days ago to meet the Wol-
verines for their first game on Mich-
igan ice this year, they were sporting
a not too impressive record - in-
cluding a two-game split with Eddie
Lowrey's team late last month.
Thursday, when the two teams came
to blows, Minnesota went on the ice
as a slight favorite. But for sixty
minutes of wild play, the big rivals
played on relatively even terms. Still
the Gophers sent four goals through
Hank Loud, while the Wolverines
finished the game scoreless.
Few Shots Attempted
The most remarkable fact about
Thursday's contest is that the usual
large number of shots was missing.
Loud made half (21) the number of
saves that he usually does. Burt
Joseph, Minnesota's fine net-minder,
made only 24 stops. Including the
four Gopher scores, the two goalies
had a total of 49 attempts come their
This is where the catch comes in.
Michigan had many fine opportun-
ities to score, but a great majority of
the shots went far wide of their
mark. Between the blue lines the
Wolverines played even with Larry
Armstrong's crew, but when the pay-
off came, Michigan wasn't able to
meet the test
Joseph Sparkled
However, don't take any credit
away from Joseph. The senior Min-
nesota net-tender turned in a spark-
ling game. He was really "on the
beam," while across the ice, Hank
Loud wasn't so lucky. Minnesota's
first goal was a complete mystery;
the second was aided by an unalert
Wolverine; the remaining two were
straight, hard shots, too hot for
Loud to handle. To top it off, all
four scores were counted unassisted.
As opportunists, the Wolverine sex-
tet didn't fare very well. While Min-
nesota played 18 minutes shorthand-
ed because of nine minor penalties,
Michigan's numerical supremacy did-
n't click with its willingness. At one
time, the Gophers battled with two
men in the penalty box.
Wolverines Forced The Fight
One important feature developed
in the encounter Thursday. For the
first time this year the Wolverines
forced the fight. Following up every
play into the corners, Captain Paul
Goldsmith and team kept the game
moving all the time. This is some-
thing that fans have been calling
for all season. At least it's some in-
dication that the sextet is attempting
to shift from their defensive style to
a more agressive type of play.
Tonight's clash between these same
squads should produce a better game
than the one two nights ago. Min-
nesota's offense will again be paced
by Bob Arnold, Capt. Al Eggleton and
Don Nolander. When Nolander was
not keeping the penalty box warm in
Thursday's game, he played a prin-
cipal part in the Gopher offense.
Arnold and Eggleton are fast skat-
ers with some snappy shots.
Michigan will probably start the
same six that lost two days ago.
Leading the Maize and Blue pack
will again be big Johnny Gillis, bul
wark for the Wolverines on defense.
Here's a tip on tonight's scrap:
Michigan to be much improved.

Michigan Mat
Squad Tangles
With Buckeyes
Columbus Match Outcome
May Show Michigan's
Chances In Big Ten
It's Michigan versus Ohio State
tonight once again.
The scene is Columbus and the
sport this time is wrestling. And as
usual the battle between these two
institutions is fraught with signifi-
cance. Unless Cliff Keen's boys turn
back the Buckeye bid in fairly im-
pressive fashion, his Big Ten title-
aspiring charges might just as well
kiss the Conference cup goodbye, be-
cause State is in no wise considered
great shakes this season in the mat-
ter of wrestling.
Even Meet
And yet this meet shapes up as
a pretty even-Stephen affair in eveW
respect except the won-lost record
of thecontestants. The Ohios have
to date dropped four out of four
while Michigan has won five out of
six. But on the basis of their amaz-
ing showing against a tough Illinois
troupe last week plus the fact that
both squads were sandbagged by
Michigan State by almost identical
scores (17-11, Michigan and 19-11,
Buckeye] it may be predicted that
tonight's show will be anything but
the soft touch it appeared a few
days ago.
To lay the cards face up the thing
looks like a stalemate, with only an
extra fall win for either side break-
ing a tie. Fear is rampant that the
first three matches and the heavy-
weight go will be nabbed by the
Scarlet and Gray, while the in-be-
tweeners should be ours.
Kopel Determined
Dick Kopel at 121 pounds for Mich-
igan has another opinion than this
dope sheet however. Dick is a mite
peeved at being outpointed last week
and avers that Ohio's Bruce Kessel-
ring had better bring more onto the
mat this evening than press clippings
if he doesn't want his ears pinned
flatly back.
On the other hand Bukeye 145
pounder Joe Stora is supposed to be
a rather adept performer in the rope-
less ring, which puts his match with
Wolverine Johnny Johnson into the
category of the unpredictable.
The other matches, viz:
Harvey Littleton or Maurle Ander-
son vs. Davey Jones at 128 pounds.
Raye Deane vs. Keith Wolfe at 136
Mary Becker vs. Leslie Mullet at
155 pounds.
Bill Courtright vs. Capt. John
Santschi at 165 pounds.
Capt. Jim Galles vs. Jim Bradfield
at 175 pounds, and finally,
Al Wistert vs. Joe Novak, heavy-
weight, should all conform to the win-
lose dope sheet sketched, above.
We repeat however that anything
can happen in tonight's fray. Where-
fore we are not laying even light
sugar in bold wager on any of our
callings of the turn.
