Worst Defeat In Series

Aubuchon, hungry for Wolverine
meat. They fed long and well.
To the audible delight of the roar-
ing crowd of 8,300 fans, Gerard and
Aubuchon generated most of the skill
and finesse which enabled the
smooth working State five to hit the
amazing average of 46 percent on
25 field goals out of 55 shots.
After spotting the Wolverines a
tipoff basket by Capt. Bill Cartmill,
Michigan State grabbed an early lead
and never lost it. Steadily increasing
the margin, Coach Ben Van Alstyne's
quintet, passing with amazing pre-
cision and split timing, moved out in
Leo Doyle, Wolverine guard, was
admitted to the University Hos-
pital late last night as a result of
an eye injury which he suffered
in the Michigan-Michigan State
basketball game. Ray Roberts,
team trainer, reported the injury'
was not serious and that he would
be released today.
front by 12-6 midway in the first
period, and then the revenge starved
Spartans really poured it on.
Only with less than two minutes
remaining did the Spartan coach re-
move his aces, secure in the know-
ledge that they had handed Michi-
gan its worst Spartan defeat in his-
tory. The previous record was a
45-23 State win in 1909.
To catch up with the feats of
Jones, though, which the Wolverines
never were quite able to do: After his
team-mate, Mel Peterson tied the
count at 2-2, Dud netted three quick
field goals on a lay-up, a one-hand
hook shot and a long tom. This made
it 8-4 after guard Bill MacConnachie
scored a long for the Wolverines.
Then in three quick minutes, the
Spartan ace poured two more longs

the basket pausing only in between
counters while the invading Michi-
gan outfit made disorganized rushes
down the long Field House floor.
Thus Jones personally dumped in'12
points and edged his quintet out to
an 18 to 8 margin, from which Michi-
gan never threatened.
Jones added another trio by half-
time, when the Green and White held
a 29 to 16 margin, and slackened but
slightly in the final period with an-
other ten markers. Gerard, feinting
and faking beautifully, poured hook
shots from both sides of the net for
12 second-half points which gave him
16 for the night and runner-up scor-
ing honors. Aubuchon, a superb play
maker from his guard slot, tallied
only five points but thrilled the huge
crowd with his Wolverine tantalizing
floor performance.
Michigan's offense-or lack of it-
was stingless, partly because the
Spartans threw up a closely knit
man-to-man defense and partly be-
cause their shots just weren't drop-
ping. State center Nick Hashu turned
in a fine job of guarding big Jim
Mandler, although he -committed
three fouls doing it. Jim's hooks were
rimming the basket and rolling out
tonight; Michigan State's weren't.
Mandler led the Wolverine scoring
with 10, while scrappy Don Holman,
starring in a reserve role, shoved in
seven. Sophomore Morrie Bikoff
played a fine floor game for the Wol-
verines, whose capabilities just could-
n't match their spirit tonight.

(Special to The Daily)
COLUMBUS, O., Feb. 11.-Racking
up its 33rd consecutive dual
meet triumph Michigan's titlehold-
ing swimming team swept aside a
strong Ohio State victory bid like so
much dust to submerge the Buck-
eyes, 48-36, in their own natatorium
here tonight.
Once again the unbeatable Wol-
verine machine shot into an early
lead which the Scarlet and Gray
color-bearers could not overcome.
And once again the Ann Arbor na-
tators splashed home ahead of Coach
Mike Peppe's ever-trying but fast-;
tiring mermen in seven of the nine
Martin Has Close Call
The thrills of the night were found
just where they were expected-in I
the fancy diving contest where Mich-
igan's colorful little senior ace, Stro-
ther T-Bone Martin, met the chal-
lenge of Ohio State's two brilliant
stars, Frank Dempsey and CharlieI
Batterman, like the true champion
he is.
Behind at the end of the sixth dive,
the flashy Wolverine, working with
machine-like precision and timing,
snatched up his victory in the final
four options with a total of 130.03
points. Barely unable to match Mar-
tin's flawless form, Dempsey had to
be content with the second place
his 128.16 points netted him, while
Batterman, garnering 125.8 markers,
finished a close third in the hotly dis-
puted contest.
Michigan Coach Matt Mann's new-
est hope for record breaking per-
formances in the freestyle events,
junior Johnny Patten, continued his
winning manners as he stroked his
way to first place in both the 220
and 440 yard races. The Maize and
Blue distance ace again unofficially
bettered the Big Ten 220 record, this
time covering the course in 2:12.8-
too fast for Buckeyes Don Schnabel
and Jack Ryan.
Sharemet Regains Form
It took Dick Reidl, Wolverine sen-
ior, to pull the biggest upset of the
night. Opposing Ohio State's hith-
erto undefeated sophomore sensation,
Mark Follansbee, Reidl swam his
fastest race of the year, 1:39.1, to
whip the Buckeye star in the 150
yard backstroke battle. The last
time these two met Follansbee touch-
ed out the Michigan entry by a palm's
length, but Reidl, pouring it on the
whole distance, evened the score to-
But it took Gus Sharemet, Maize

and Blue senior, who set the swim-
ming world on fire his sophomore
year and who since has been just
another paddler, to provide the most
heartening Wolverine performance.
Big Gus, for the first time in two
long years, indicated tonight that
he is once again ready to scale the
ladder from which he so disappoint-
ingly and thumpingly toppled.
Hard-pressed by Ohio State Capt.
John Leitt and Michigan Capt. Dob-
by Burton, Sharemet kept his early
lead tonight and captured the 100
yard freestyle in 53.8, his best time of
the current season. With Sharemet
regaining his winning ways, the Wol-
verine aggregation becomes more 'of
a threat than ever to repeat as Big
Ten and National champions.
Skinner Wins Again
Michigan's only individual national
king, breastroker Jim Skinner, once
again won with ease as he butter-
flyed his way to victory in 2:26.9, too
fast a pace for Ohio State's duo of
Chuck Spangler and Leo Mamaliga.
Reidl, Skinner and Sharemet
teamed together to capture the open-
ing 300 yard medley relay in 3:02.2,
but the Maize and Blue 400 yard re-
lay quartet lost to the Buckeyes, the
winning time being 3:36.8. The only
other event won by Ohio State was
the 50 yard freestyle where Leitt
edged Burton and Bruce Allen in 24.1.

Gillis, Dance,
Kemp Rejoin
Hockey Team
Braidford On Service Call
To Canadian Army; Hull
Is Declared Ineligible '

With the addition of three 'bul-
lets' to the scoring punch of the
Michigan hockey team, prospects of
better games and more victories are
much brighter right now than they
were some three months ago.
Johnny Gillis, Bob Kemp and Bill;
Dance compose a trio of puckmen
that is sure to click in future Wol-
verine puck battles. Gillis is a big
and tough, and his appearance at a
defensive position will hearten every
Maize and Blue hockey follower. His
experience at working at 'the last
line of defense' is a mighty potent
note at this stage of the season.
Kemp, Dance Scoring Threats
Kemp and Dance, while not built
on the rugged side, are both scoring
threats every minute they are on
the ice. Their best assets are speed
and experience-just what the hoc-
key coach wants in his Christmas
stocking. And it's still better late
than never.
But it isn't all good news that has
greeted Coach Eddie Lowrey this past'
week. Play-maker Johnny Braid-
ford's services are now available to
the Canadian Army-a loss that's
not going to be too easy to take. De-
fenseman Jimmy Hull, who held a
starting berth in many of the past
Wolverine battles, has been claimed
by the fellow who spends his time
recording scholastic averages. In.
other words, Hull is now out of cir-
culation for puck duties because of
a newly acquired ineligibility stand-
Illini Hit Hard
While the Michigan hockey team
has set a new low in its mortality
record, Illinois hasn't fared so well.
Although no statisical data are
available, some hard-working indi-
vidual could take a slide-rule and
show that Vic Heyliger's squad has
set a new high in athletic mortali-
ties. The loss of a major portion of
their offensive punch may give the
Wolverines an opportunity to sneak
ahead and take the Big Ten title.
Anyway, Saturday's game against
the Paris A.C. in the Coliseum will
give a good indication of what Wol-
verine hockey fans can expect from
here in.

Varsity Matmen Prep To Meet
Nebraska Squad Monday Night


The special foot messenger bring-c
ing the publicity material on the Ne-
braska wrestling team direct from
Lincoln fell down an open man-hole
and drowned. So here's the best
catch-as-catch-can dope we could dig
up on the boys who meet the"Varsity
here next Monday night:a
One thing alone is certain. The hot
shpt of the Nebraska team is their
145 pounder, Newton Copple. Newt
is a junior and in the Midwest In-
vitational at Ames. Iowa, a month
ago he took the welterweight title.
Then last Saturday he upset and out-
pointed Iowa's pride and joy. Ed
Kemp, in a dual meet.
Strong At 155 Lbs.
Newt has a brother, name of Ed, -
who is himself no dub on the mat.
Ed battled his way to the finals in
the meet at Ames and then only
grudgingly bowed to the national 155
pound champ from Oklahoma A &
M. in an air-tight match.
The only other Husker performer
about whom much is known is heavy-
weight Herb Jackson, whose 240
pounds are mainly adipose tissue.
Herb reached the finals of the Mid-
west Invitational, which speaks high-
ly for his mat prowess since Clifft
Keen names this the season's tough-
est meet to date. On top of that Herb
decisioned the Iowa heavyweight in
the aforementioned dual meet to give
the Huskers the second of their mea-'
ger brace of victories.
Huskers Lose To Iowa
Which is to say the Nebraskas did
not fare so well against the Hawk-
eyes. In fact they lost 24-6, but one
must take into account that Iowa is
the present odds-on favorite to cop
the Big Ten wrestling crown this
It is the highly untrustworthy mea-
suring stick of this meet with Iowa
which must be the standard for eval-
uating the remainder of the Husker
ensemble. In any event it would ap-
pear that the first three weights are
woefully undermanned, since 121
pounder Meyer Euoka, featherweight
Frank Messersmith and 136 lb. Ken-
neth Niller were all tossed on their
respective backs and pinned in short
order by their Hawkeye adversaries.
The Nebraska 165 pounder, George
Cockle, was outpointed in the Iowa
meet and that bare fact is alone


28-Point Margin
Team First Loss

Dropping a match to Georgia Tech
by a narrow 28-point margin, the
University Naval ROTC rifle team
was knocked from the ranks of the
undefeated in an encounter with
three other NROTC squads at the
close of the last semester.
Although beaten by Georgia Tech,
the NROTC team, in postal matches
fired on Jan. 31, conquered NROTC
squads from Tulane, 920 to 900, and
Colorado, 1,807 to 1,736. The team's
record now stands at 11 wins, one
defeat; and their credit is a victory
over Minnesota, last year's NROTC
champions, by a score of 1,866 to
Against Colorado and Georgia
Tech, the team was led by Mort
Hunter, '44, with a score of 371. Also
firing for Michigan were Capt. Art
Thomson, '44E, 368; Harry Miller,
'44E, 368; Dave Anderson, '45A, 353;
and Dick Wilkins, '45E, 947. Against
Tulane, Hunter, Miller, Allen Lewis,
'45E, Thomson and Anderson were
on the firing line.
The NROTC team, rated as one of
the country's top-ranking squads,
plans to challenge. Georgia Tech to
another match, it was disclosed.

team will be held at 4:15 p.m. to-

Chi Psis Lead Qualifiers
In FraternityRelay Meet
Anchored by speedy Don Robinson,
fleet sophomore back on the football
team, Chi Psi won the qualifying
round of the Fraternity relays which
were held at Yost Field House last
night. They were clocked for the
880-yard run in 1:39.8, approximately
three seconds over the record.
The three other teams which
earned the right to compete for the
title, to be run off during .the Notre
Dame-Michigan meet here Feb. 20
were Phi Gamma Delta, Sigma Phi
Epsilon and Phi Delta Theta.

With the turn of the new semesteri
the Intramural Department picks up
where it left off. A half dozen tour-
naments are now under way and more
are soon to follow.
Heading the list of events is the
fraternity swimming final between
Phi Delta Theta and Phi Kappa Psi
which will be held at 8:30 p.m. to-
day in the I-M Pool. Immediately
fallowing Phi Kappa Psi will face
Phi Gamma Delta in water polo to
determine who will meet the Phi
Delts in the finals of that sport.

new champion was crowned yester-
day afternoon. Sigma Alpha Mu led

With the opening meet of the in-
door track season scheduled for Sat-
urday night at East Lansing, at
which time the Wolverines encounter
Michigan State and the Michigan
Normal Hurons in a triangular con-
test, Michigan's track mentor, Ken
Doherty, is looking to his shot put-
ters to supply much of the power
necessary to turn back the vaunted'
attack of the Hurons, who reputedly
have one of the best teams in their
history this year and may prove a
strong threat to Wolverine suprem-
acy in the state.
The roster of the Normal squad
presents a list of stars, any or all
of whom might upset the proverbial
apple cart and romp home to a vic-
tory over the favored Wolverines.
And if, by any quirk of fate or coin-
cidence, all the Hurons pick this Sat-
urday night to gang up op the Michi-
gan crew, then it is not impossible
that the Ypsi team might wrest the
title away from the Wolverines.
Whitey Hlad, the sensational Hur-
on timber-topper, might come in with
both the high and low hurdle events
to his credit. , Joe Matyunas, Nor-
mal's sophomore quarter-miler, might
turn the trick on Michigan's Bobby
Ufer in the 440, and Duane Zemper,
the Huron distance star, might con-
ceivably sweep both the mile and
two-mile races. Thus it is that Mich-
igan's coach is hoping for the best

season to repacture his erstwhile
form. Ostroot's best try so far this
year is 45 feet 71/8 inches, but he has
been constantly improving and Coach
Doherty expects to reach his old
mark very soon.
Gene Hirsch is the only other ex-
perienced shot-putter on the Wolver-
ine squad. Also a junior, Hirsch was
third man last year behind Bob
Hook and Tommy Lawton, both of
whom have graduated, and with a
practice heave to his credit of almost
44 feet already this season, Gene can
be counted on to give Ostroot a run
for his money for the top spot on
the squad.
The other three Michigan shot-
putting hopefuls have carried their
weight and ability over to the cinder
track from the football field. Big
Merv Pregulman, Chuck Kennedy
and Ted Denise have all done over
40 feet in practice and it is from
these three that the thinclad coach
