over was the spirited battle the two
reserve outfits were putting up.
Bob Zimmerman, Maroon forward,
led the Chicagoans in scoring with 11
points and was by far the outstand-
ing ball player the Chicago team pre-
sented on the court.
Although he scored only six points,
Don Holman, scrappy Wolverine
guard, was the cog of the Michigan
defense as he broke up numerous
Chicago scoring attempts. Every
time the Maroon players turned
around they bumped into the dimin-
utive senior who was always at the
right spot at the right time.
Last night's victory was Michigan's
20th win of its last 22 engagements
with Chicago, and its 23rd out of
33 in the cages series.
Tomorrow night ,the Wolverines
close their 1942 season when they
take on Purdue at 7:30 p.m. in Yost
Field House. Capt. Bill Cartmill, Bob
Antle and Holman will be ending
their cage careers in Michigan uni-
forms.

V Crisler Mystery Continues
" ( Speculation And Analysis
By HAL WILSON
Daily Sports Editor
* * * *

4NN ARBOR became a veritable hot'
bed of speculation yesterday on
the impending Crisler move to the
physical education forces of the Navy
with "unimpeachable high University
Sources" outnumbering students two
to one.
Every large Chicago and Detroit
newspaper had its "reliable campus
authority" acting as a spokesman
for University officials. The news
services once again took a swim in
the pool of speculation, evasively
pinning their statements on anon-
ymous sources. And once again,
the question arises: where does factj
end and fancy begin?
THREE metropolitan newspapers-
- the rargest in Chicago and one
in Detroit-carried stories the sub-
stance of which was almost identical.
Friday the Ann Arbor News reported
that Athletic Director Herbert O.
(Fritz) Crisler was headed into one
of two Naval assignments: 1. A direc-
torship at one of the Navy's four
aviation cadet training bases, or 2.
the athletic directorship and football
coaching berth at the Great Lakes
Naval Training Station in Chicago.
Both posts are said to have offered
Fritz a commission of lieutenant
commander.
The News added that Crisler would
probably leave "within the next two
weeks." Yesterday the three metro-
politan sheets narrowed this down to
"within a week", attributing the new
time figure to "reliable sources." For
instance:

ports that he had asked the Univer-
sity for a leave of absence or that
he would leave in the very near future
as absolutely false.
"I have not contacted the Board
of Regents or President Ruthven.
They have not contacted me," he
declared. "Nor do I intend to pur-
sue any similar action in the near
future. Everything is in a state
of flux right now. My plans are
nowhere near definite, but you can
say for certain that the various
reports of my IMMINENT depart-
ure from Michigan are false."
A previous check of the Board of
Regents bore out Crisler 100 per cent.
The Board has not received any re-
quest from Fritz for a leave of ab-
sence. They have not discussed the
matter at all. There is no special
meeting scheduled for next week.
SECOND LARGEST rumour to gain
credence in many papers is that
which states that five former Michi-
gan gridiron stars will play under
Crisler's coaching at Great Lakes.
The Wolverines mentioned are Bob
Westfall, Bob Ingalls, Whitey Frau-
mann, Bob Flora, and Butch Jor-
dan.
All of these men have taken their
physical examinations for the
Navy. Some have sent in applica-
tions for appointments, some have
not. Some of those who haven't
yet done so, plan to in the immedi-
ate future. But none of them will
play under Crisler at Great Lakes
as reported.
HERE'S WHY. These gridmen' are
not interested in the Great
Lakes program. Instead, they have
selected Lieut. Comm. Tom Hamil-
ton's Bureau of Aeronautics setup
which provides for aviation cadet
training bases at the University of
Iowa, Georgia, North Carolina and
St. Marys College. If everything
goes okay and they are accepted,
they will probably be sent to one of
these four centers. But under exist-
ing plans, they will never play foot-
ball under Crisler at Great Lakes,
even if Fritz eventually does move
there.

49 "While Crisler declined to com-
ment on his future plans, Univer-
TP sity authorities stated that Fritz
8 will meet with the Board of Re-
0 gents within a week to ask for a
11 leave of absence which will enable
0 him to accept an assignment in
3 the Navy's program of conditioning
0 fighting men. "

Big, Alert Minnesota Teami
Paced By Capt. Eggleton;
Kemp GetsVarsity Tally
(Continued from Page 1)
Lowrey's team carried the battle to
the Gophers all the way. Max Bah-
rych, along with Collins, Goldsmith
and Kemp, gave goalie Burt Joseph
and the Minnesota defense a very
busy night.1
Opening up the first period in high
gear, the Michigan offense started
clicking with the best passing that
the home sextet has done this year.
Minnesota, however, kept the play
ringing in high pitch, forcing Hank
Loud to make ten saves in the firstj
nine minutes. Finally, while play-j
ing a man short, Captain Al Eggle-
ton picked up a loose puck at center
ice and scored on a long poke from
the Michigan blue line at 12:07. Sev-
en minutes later (19:09), Don Snapp
took a fine pass from John Bolla and
scored, going in all alone. Minne-
sota 2, Michigan 0.
The second period opened with the
Wolverines taking many shots, but
Joseph met the challenge in stride.
Kemp was the first to mark, taking
a pass from Gillis, and then faked
Joseph out of the play to score
(17:12). Eggleton took a pass from
Bob Arbold 40 seconds later, and
scored his second goal of the night.
Michigan had a trio of opportunities
to counter, but no score materialized.
After a few minutes in the final
period, Arnold was shaken up a bit
when he cracked into Loud and then
back into the nets. After a little
delay, however, Arnold was ready to
resume play.
At the turn of the period, Pat Ma-
loney added another score to the
Gopher string, taking a pass from
the ever alert Arnold (11:37). Less'
than five minutes later, Joe Page
ended the night's scoring when he
countered after taking a pass from
John Behrendt. Minnesota 5, Michi-
gan 1.
One definite fact came out of last
night's game: Not one of the assem-
bled 750 fans will attest that he had-
n't witnessed one of the greatest
athletic scraps ever played, any-
where, anytime.

Swimmers To Meet Spartans

By BUD HENDEL
Fully recovered from the Yale de-
bacle and confident of winning as it
pleases, Michigan's titleholding swim-
ming team will invade the Jenison
Pool in East Lansing tomorrow night
for a dual meet with the Spartans
of Michigan State.
Coach Matt Mann has not yet de-.
cided which of his natators will make
the trip, but in view of the excellent
showing made by the understudies

Coach Crisier
Proposes New r
Frosh Rulinigs
Submits Plan To Big Ten
' Official; Opposes First
Year VarsityEligibility r
By MYRON DANN ,
Anticipating a change in the Bigl
Ten eligibility rules as far as fresh-
men are concerned, Michigan's Ath-
letic Director, H. 0. "Fritz" Crisler,
revealed yesterday that he has sub-
mitted a special proposal to Major
John L. Griffith, conference com-
missioner, that would permit fresh-
man intercollegiate contests in all
sports.
Within the proposal Crisler includ-
ed a sharp criticism of the colleges
and universities that have eliminated
the rule barring freshmen from var-
sity competition.l
Favors Status Quof
The Wolverine coach is in favor l
of keeping the Conference eligibility
setup exactly the way it is except for
the one addition he advocates. The
entire question will be taken up when
the Big Ten athletic directors gather
for their annual meeting in Chicago1
March 6-8.
"If we in the Western Conferencej
allow freshmen to compete in inter-
collegiate sports of their own it will
broaden the base of our athletic pro-
gram by putting a new emphasis on
first year activities," Crisler pointed
out.
"Freshmen are allowed to compete
in varsity sports at many universi-
ties and colleges today, which causes
an elimination of freshmen pro-
grams." Crisler added that this is
against the wishes of the Army and
Navy.
"In some of our institutions in the
Conference the varsity football squad
is composed of 50 players or more
and the freshman squad of more than
100. "It wouldn't be possible," Cris-
ler said, "for a coach to carry that
number on the varsity team and it is
only natural that those who are cut
will lose interest in the sport and drop
out."
Evils Of Change
It was pointed out that the aband-
onment of the "one year rule" would
be an invitation for intensive effort
in recruiting and proselyting and
there undoubtedly would be a reap-
pearance of the tramp athlete, "now
quite obsolete."
Crisler feels that the actual health
of the freshmen would be jeopard-
ized if they played varsity in their
first year. "They would not be ready
for the vigorous physical require-
ments that the upperclassmen have
been prepared for."
Crisler also said in his report,
"Academically the proposal is un-
sound because a new man has plenty
to do in just making proper grades in
his freshman year even without com-
peting on a varsity team."

once again on his reserve strength
for a Wolverine victory.
Tomorrow night's battle will mark
the next to last dual meet for the
Maize and Blue color-bearers this
year. Only a clash with Minnesota's
Gophers at Minneapolis this coming
Friday remains on the Michigan na-
tatorial schedule before the Confer-
ence and National Collegiate meets.
Thus far in the present season the
Michigan State crew can boast of a
.500 average against mediocre opposi-
tion, winning two, losing two, and
tying one. Last week the Spartans
garnered only one first place as they
fell, 53-27, before Ohio State's Buck-
eyes, a team which the Wolverines
have already beaten twice this year.
Leading the East Lansing outfit
will be Ralph Newton, junior free-
styler who will swim both the 50 and
100 yard events. In all probability
Mann will use the same men in these
races as he did against Iowa, with
Bruce Allen and Bob West carrying
the banner in the 50 and Allen and
Capt. Dobby Burton swimming the
100.
In the win over Iowa Mann tossed
everybody on the squad into action in
an effort to give his reserves some
needed experience. With little re-
sistance expected from Michigan
State, he will likely pursue the same
policy, giving Perry Trytten, Art
Dobson, John Weise, Dave Levy and
Alex Canja a chance to earn their
Varsity letters.
McCarthy May Compete
In Big Ten Track Meet
Michigan's hopes for another
Western Conference indoor track
crown were once more in the ascend-
ancy yesterday as University doctors
disclosed that there was a good
chance that Frank McCarthy would
be able to compete in the Big Ten
track championships in Chicago next
Friday and Saturday.
McCarthy, highest individual scor-
er on the Wolverine squad, suffered
a contusion of the hip from a fall
in the Pitt meet Friday night but
sustained no broken bones. Whether
he competes in the Conference tour-
nament will depend on how quickly
the bruise heals, doctors said.

ies, but since wrestling is a very prac-
tical thing and since both Deane and
Corky were in fine fettle they blasted
both the theory and the Buckeye
twain conjointly. Ray was on his way
to the showers at 4:56 while Bill had
to toil somewhat longer and didn't
finish his task until 7:19.
The day started off rather sadly
for the Wolverines as Dick Kopel
absorbed a 5-3 outpointing by State's
Bruce Kesselring in the 121 pound
overture. And shortly thereafter the
total Ohio points for the afternoon
had been collected as Buckeye Davey
Jones stowed Maurie Anderson away
in his locker in 5:42.
From then on however it was a
gay old time for Michigan all the
way as Ohio State set 'em up and
the visitors knocked 'em down. John-
ny Johnson was bigger, stronger and
better than Keith Wolfe and hence
won, 7-2, in the welterweight match.
Mary Becker has beaten team cap-
tains before and did it again in de-
cisioning Scarlet and Gray leader
John Santschi, 8-4. Lightweight Jim
Bradfield was one of the better Ohio
performers but so is Capt. Jim Galles
one of ours. It was Galles by an 8-4
count.
And finally, in the unlimited bout
Al Wistert used a 25 pound weight
advantage to such good effect that
he had a very untroubled time of it
with enemy Stan Sawchyn and
walked off the mat with an easy
4-1 triumph.
Illini Take Big Ten Title
CHICAGO, Feb. 28. -(A)- The
University of Illinois basketball team
tonight clinched its first undisputed
Big Ten championship since 1915 by
defeating Northwestern, 63 to 49, be-
fore a crowd of 18,931 persons at the
Chicago Stadium. The victory gave
the Illini 12 wins in 13 Conference
games.
