Northwestern's Fahrbach
Takes Both Freestyle
Sprints ; Patten Wins
(Continued from Page 1)
Martin repeated his triumph over
Ohio State's brilliant springboard
duo of Frank Dempsey and Charlie
Batterman, and. on the basis of his
season's performances the close-knit
Michigan senior was expected to
romp all over the Wildcat entry. But
tonight Jaynes was just too much for
the boy who was being touted as
the coming national titleholder, and
when the last splash had subsided the
slight Northwestern sophomore had
accomplished the seemingly impos-
Fahrbach Sweeps Sprints
Likewise individual scoring honors
must be reserved for a Purple color-
bearer, Capt. Dick Fahrbach. The
speedy Northwestern sprinter won a
double victory from the Wolverine
invaders, capturing the 50 yard free-
style in 24 seconds flat and the 100
yard event in 53.5. Michigan Capt.
Dobby Burton finished a close sec-
ond to the Wildcat leader in the
latter battle and third in the former.
Jack Patten, Maize and Blue dis-
tance ace, lived up to all his glowing
notices as he churned to an easy
2:13.8 win in the 220 freestyle and
came from behind as the Wolverine
anchor man in the 400 yard freestyle
relay to give his mates their second
relay victory. Previously the Michi-
gan trio of Ted Horlenko, Jim Skin-
ner and Gus Sharemet had won the
300 yard medley relay event in 3:02.7.
Reidl And Skinner Win
Dick Reidl and Skinner had little
trouble in their specialties, copping
the 150 yard backstroke and 200 yard
breaststroke respectively. Reidl 'e
winning time was 1:40.3 while Skin-
ner required 2:29.4 for his victory.
Walt Stewart won the 440 yard free-
style for Michigan, lapping his ri-
vals twice for his 5:05.6 time.
The Wolverines will board their
automobile caravan for Lafayette to-
morrow, facing Dick Papenguth''
Purdue squad tomorrow night. The
Boilermakers, led by freestyler Capt.
Dick Kratzer and breast-stroker Joe
Williamson, have been priming for
an upset but the Wolverines will once
again hit the water as odds on fav-
orites. They will return to Ann Arbor

weakened and the Orange and Blue
strengthened. Lost from the ranks of
the Maize and Blue is sophomore
Ralph Gibert who played a major role
in keeping Michigan in the running
in the last Illini battle.
Added to this is the fact that Leo
Doyle, stellar Wolverine guard who
has played almost the full time of
all Michigan's Conference games, will
not even be able to see action. Doyle
injured his eye in the Michigan-
Michigan State game last Wednesday
night and was still confined to the
University Hospital today.
Illinois, on the other hand, has
been greatly strengthened by the re-
turn of Henry Sachs, ace guard of the
1939-40 season. Sachs became in-
eligible in January of 1941 and drop-
ped out of school. He re-entered in
September and, according to the Big
Ten rules, was forced to maintain a
certain scholastic average over the
first semester before he was per-
mitted to play again.
Michigan has won only three Big
Ten games this year, but all of them
have been upsets of the first order.
First, Northwestern was beaten, 34-
32, on the Wildcats' home floor; next
came a 53-39 win over Ohio State,
fresh from a 54-52 victory over troub-
lesome Iowa and an overwhblming
51-41 triumph over Northwestern;
and finally Minnesota fell, 34-32, in
a game which was tied six times,
which saw neither team score for
over four of the last five minutes
until finally Michigan sunk the win-
ning goal with 30 seconds to play.
Up until the Indiana game last
Monday night, Illinois had been
bowling over opponent, after oppo-
nent and has now scored 379 potnts
in eight Conference tilts. Big guns of
this sharp-shooting offensive have
Conn Defeats Zale
NEW YORK, Feb. 13.-(A)-Like
:r kid with a new toy he found under
ais Christmas tree, Billy Conn
)layed with little Tony Zale for a
lozen rounds tonight and galloped
.o an easy decision in Madison Square
3arden. Conn weighed 1753/4; Zale

been Andy Phillip, sophomore guard
who has hit the hoop for 87 points,
and Ken Menke, sophomore forward
who was picked for all-state honors
during his high school days and who
has scored 75 points.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan of the
Michigan team hasn't decided whom
he will start in tomorrow's contest.
He was definitely sure that Capt. Bill
Cartmill would be at one of the for-
ward positions and that Mandler
would hold down his usual spot at
Either Mel ComingBob Shemky or
Wally Spreen will hold down the
other forward position, with Comin
having the edge over his sophomore
teammates. Doyle, if his eye has
healed sufficiently enough to allow
him to play, will be at one guard spot,
with either Bill MacConnachie, Mor-
rie Bikoff or Don Holman teaming
with him as the other guard.
Doug Mills, Orange and Blue cage
coach, indicated he would stick to
his usual five-Menke and Jack
Smiley at forwards, Vic Wukovits at
center and Phillip and Gene Vance
at guards. Of this starting team, only
Wukovits is a senior, the other four
all sophomores.

Matmen Clash
With Nebraska
Wrestling Meet To Follow
Basketball Tilt Monday
Just a reminder this is, but anyone
who leaves the Field House after the
basketball game Monday night will
have missed half the show. A plenty
snappy wrestling encounter between
Michigan and Nebraska being on the
docket immediately after the Wolver-
ine and Hoosier cakers have had their
You may recall that to date the
Varsity has won, tied and lost one
each against teams which provided
the very bitterest of acid tests for a
Wolverine ensemble secretly nour-
ishing Big Ten title aspirations. One
other match, a breather, they also
copped, in breather style.
But that was just, as one might
say, last semester's team. Now, as a
result of the annual inter-semester
coup d'etat there have been men lost
and there have been men gained,
and yesterday Coach Cliff Keen fin-
ally pulled his head out of the sand
and cautiously looked around to as-
certain how cruelly fate had double-
dealt him.
Whereupon the jaw opened and the
eye glazed. For he 'found that in-
stead of leaving the accustomed de-
struction in its wake the perennial
upheaval had unbelievably bared a
bright and shining gold mine. Which
simply means that the new wrestling
team is even better than the old.

(Continued from Page 1)
Chuck Pinney, star sophomore tim-
ber-topper, had injured his foot in
practice, which would force him out
of competition for a few days, and
Capt. Al Piel. the team's No. 1 sprint-
er, also suffering from an injured
foot, had not recovered sufficiently{
to allow him to take part in today's
And, if that were not enough, Joe
Leahy and Bud Byerley, hurdlers,
and John Roxborough, sophomore
half-miler, have all sustained injuries
in practice which will keep them at
In spite of this nefarious attack
by the injury jinx, however, and the
fact that the Michigan Normal Hur-j

meet. Naturally, the margin of vic-
tory will not be so great as other-
wise expected, but Michigan's cinder
squad will probably have too much
balanced power for its intrastate op-
ponents to overcome.
With Pinney out of competition,
an added task falls on the capable
shoulders of Wolverine Frank Mc-
Carthy. Originally slated to take
part in the high hurdles, the high
jump, and broad jump events, Mc-
Carthy will now have to back up Al
Thomas at the low hurdles also. The
husky timber-topper can be count-
ed on to give the favorite, Spartan
Whitey Hlad, a run for his money in
both the highs and the lows.
Ufer Vs. Matyunas
All eyes this afternoon will be
focused on the open quarter-mile
race, which promises to be one of the
closest contests ever seen in Michi-
gan State's Jennison Field House.
The Wolverines' ace 440 man, Bob
Ufer, who has been enjoying the
best season of his career so far this
year, will run against the Hurons'
sensational sophomore, Joe Matyun-
as, and nobody has presumed yet to
predict the winner of the race.
Matyunas has never run against
Ufer before, so no comparison can
be made in that way. Last spring,
however, in his freshman year, the
Huron Flash accomplished what was
almost the impossible by defeating
Warren Breidenbach, Michigan's all-
time quarter-mile champion, and the
pride of Michigan Normal has dis-
played just as much ability in pre-
vious meets this year.
Varsity and freshman golfers
please report any time after 1:30
p.m. Monday at the golf nets in

ny Gillis taking over the starboard
side on the back line. Teaming up
with Ed Reichert, Gillis will probably
be bouncing the charging opposition
against the boards during a majority
of the battle.
The other two reasons-Bob Kemp
and Bill Dance-will team up with
Roy Bradley for front linechores.
This trio will open the attack, with
Goldsmith, Bob Collins and Max
Bahrych ready for immediate relief
duty. This marks the first time this
season that Lowrey is able to have
two capable front lines ready for ac-
tive service.
New Third Line
The Wolverines will also have a
third line which can be used-John
Corson, Doug Hillman and possibly
Jim Claypool. With these reserves
awaiting action, it is unlikely that
Michigan will be as greatly hampered
by tiring players as in previous con-
In the nets, as usual, will be Hank
Loud who has turned in fine work in
all of the past games. Averaging well
over 40 saves per game, Loud has
been one of the busiest men on the
ice. With a better balanced team in
front of him, he will be in a better
position to again turn in a sparkling

Of the eleven-man traveling squad,

here before are theTorti brothers,

All three played here last year with
the strong Brantford A.C. While with

are with a team who beat the Wol-
verines 7-3 last year.

Cornered from the Deep -
and Skillfully Prepared
It takes our clever cooks to talk to these delicacies of the deep
as they prepare them with knowing skill . . . in order to get
the very best-of-flavor results. Come for oysters, or lobster, or
a glorious fish dinner - and say frankly whether you've ever
tasted the likes before.

TAKE the service enlistments of
several Illinois hockey players;
toss in a few Orange and Blue ineh-
gibilities; add a trio of newly-eligible
Michigan ice performers; mix well
and you may have the formula for
a Wolverine Big Ten puck champion-
Michigan hockey players are def-
initely talking title. At present-
halfway through the Conference
campaign-they are occupying a
drafty position in the cellar of the
three-team loop. But from Capt.
Paul Goldsmith right down to the
last substitute, or even Bill McLeod,
junior manager, they are convinced
they have an excellent, though ad-
mittedly outside, chance to top the
riddled Illini and Minnesota in the
title scramble.
Here are the circumstances leading
up to this conclusion, which a month
ago would have been hailed as .a folly
superior even to a Philadelphia Phil-
lies fan betting on his team to sweep
four straight in the World Series-
and offering odds:
1Misfortune came in several doses
for the fast-skating Illini, one of
the two best collegiate sextets in the
nation. After crushing Michigan
twice last semester, Vic Heyliger's
Indians lost seven of their aces in
two weeks. First blow came when
Roland DePaul, who dented the
Michigan nets four times in one
game, and Mario Palazzari withdrew
from school to play pro hockey with
Akron, a farm club of the Cleveland
Next Lou Ferronti, a sophomore
forward, and Joe Brooks, a sopho-
more defenseman, failed to clear
scholastic barriers. Bibbs Miller
was called home by his draft board
to enter army service. Russ Priest-
ley, a second line forward, also
suffered academic deficiencies. '
Then came climax and anti-cli-
max. Star left wing Aldo Palazzari,
Mario's brother, was also sidelined by
the dean's office, leaving only eight
eligible Illini, including a pair of
goalies. Final straw was the first
semester graduation of Illinois' stu-
dent manager.
2 Michigan, on the other hand,
benefited to a yet-undetermined
extent from final exams. The testst
will come tonight at the Coliseum
when Paris A.C. brings another
strong Canadian crew to shove the
new Wolverine lineup under intensive
fire. John Gillis, hard-checking de-
fenseman, Bob Kemp and Bill Dance,
fast-skating wings-these are the
three performers who are expected
to lead the Wolverines out of the
morass of mediocrity inrwhich they1
have floundered thus far.
'. A third condition must also be

The schedule-makers offer Mich-
igan two more games with each
Illinois and Minnesota. At present
the Indians hold two Big Ten wins,
the Gophers have a record of one
and one, while the Maize and Blue's
losses outbalance the wins, three
to one. Thus, in order to win the
championship Michigan must win
all remaining four Conference
AN INDICATION of just how pos-
sible this may be can be found
in the statistics of the Illinois-Mich-
igan Tech series. Before the Indians
were weakened, they trounced the
Miners twice by large scores. Last
week Tech tied them once, 2-2, and
won the second game, 4-3. Michi-
gan, before it regained ineligible
strength, tied Tech once and lost a
close decision.
The tipoff however, will come to-
night at the Colisem when the re-
juvenated Wolverine lineup under-
goes its initial baptism.
