pivotman., In the next five minutes
the Illini sophomore stars started
moving and built up a 13 to 4 lead.
In this offensive spree Wukovits and
Phillips, on long shots, and Ken
Menke dropped in a couple free
throws for the commanding lead
that they never relinquished. By
halftime the score stood at 19-10,
with Michigan making only four bas-
kets in the entire first half.
As the second period opened, the
Big Ten leaders put on a six-point
spurt. They connected with three
out of four of their first basket at-
tempts as the second half began.
Jack Smiley, Wukovits, and Phillip
all hit the cords to give the lini a
25 to 10 lead. Michigan then made
its final fling as it counted five con-
secutive points, but it couldn't hold
the pace.
The Orange and Blue squad again
turned on the steam and raced away.
Coach Mills kept his regulars in the
game until near the end. With five
minutes remaining he replaced the
entire starting five. Illinois used
10 men in the tilt and all 10 man-
aged to hit the scoring column.
Thirteenth Illini Win
It was the thirteenth victory for
the Illini in 15 games. Their only
losses were received from the Cha-
nute Field team and Indiana. By
their showing tonight they appeared
to be headed for the 1942 Western
Conference title with only Minnesota
and Indiana offering them any re-
Michigan's unpredictable team was
definitely outclassed tonight. In the
last meeting of the two teams Michi-
gan nearly upset the superior squad
from Champaign as they lost 44 to
40. But tonight it was a different
story. Holman proved to be the lone
spark in the otherwise listless Wol-
verine offensive.- The only other
important scorers for Michigan were
Mandler with six points and Capt.
Bill Cartmill, who collected a total
of five.
Oosterbaan Juggles Lineup
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan juggled
his lineup once more in an attempt
to come up with a winner. But it
proved to be useless. Oosterbaan
started sophomore Wally Spreen, big
six foot two forward, in the spot
left vacant by the loss of Ralph Gi-
bert. Also he used Holman at guard
as Leo Doyle was still confined to
the hospital at Ann Arbor with an
eye injury.

By Powerful Paris A.C. Team


(Continued from Page 1)

power attack dominated the play for
a great majority of the game.
Not lessening the great play of the
Canadians, an important factor in
the Wolverine loss was something
which many thought would be ab-
sent. Just as in previous battles,
Lowrey's men tired easily, thus giv-
ing the visitors greater ease in at-
tack. Poor conditioning hampered
the Wolverine style to a great ex-
tent and when the Varsity did have
their few scoring opportunities, they
weren't able to rise to the occasion.
Only Ed Reichert's poke that hit the
mark on a rebound shot of Bob
Kemp, kept the Wolverines from be-
ing shut out.
Fast First Period
The first period got under way
with the fastest start made on the
Coliseum ice this season. Both teams
were aggressive, with Michigan get-
ting many shots in the early minutes.
None of them, however, was able to
make the red light flash.
Clare Easto, Paris center, opened
up the Canadian scoring spree at
6:28, when he sent a shot by Hank
Loud and right through the back
of the nets. Three minutes later
(9:31) Obs Grant gave the visitors a
2-0 lead, after going in all alone.
With Norm Lindsay, Paris goalie,
in front of the nets, John Corson and
Capt. Paul Goldsmith had Michigan's
first real scoring opportunity, but
no counter materialized. Repeatedly
sending down an attack with five
men, Paris cashed in again with but
48 seconds left in the initial period.
Taking a fine pass from Ernie Usher,
Bill Hayward got his first goal of
the night, sending the puck singing
into the Michigan nets. Paris 3,
Michigan 0.
Haywood Scores Again
Haywood chalked up his second
goal early in the second period
(2:38), coming up fast after Loud
had stopped Martin's attempt. Tony
Torti's score on a pass from John
Butcher (5:57), coupled with an-
other by Playing-Coach Lloyd Kemp-
throne (8:50), gave :Paris a safe 6-0
advantage. Reichert turned in I ich-
igan's lone tally at 9:14. -At 12:18
Butcher received a major penalty
after cracking Kemp down on the
ice with some high-sticking, giving
Kemp a bad gash over his right eye.
Kemp took a penalty shot, but Lind-
say blocked it high in the air.
Martin made the score 7-1 at 14:50,
when he sent a long high shot past
Loud. For the succeeding five min-
utes, the Wolverines received many

more opportunities to score. But asI
before, their attempts went astray.
Then, with five seconds remaining
in the period, Haywood came through
with his final marker of the contest
on a pass from Usher. Thus, the sec-
opd period came to an end with the
visitors on top of an 8-1 lop-sided
The final period found the Varsity
turning in its best work of the game.
But over-skating the puck after good


passing halted the Wolverines in
their final attempts to narrow the
margin. Just at the turn of the"
period (10:55) Obs Grant made the
final score of the night, taking a
pass from the ever-alert Martin.
Lindsay turned in some remark-
able saves in the second half of the
period, preventing Michigan from
countering. In the fading minutes,
Max Bahrych broke loose and skat-
ed three-quatrers of the rink, only to
have his shot go wide of the nets.
In toto, Loud turned back 43 Paris
scoring attempts, while Lindsay
handled 26 Wolverine shots almost

Home Season
With Nebraska
145-Pound Fray Headlines
Monday Night's Show;
Keen's Crew Is Favored
Positively your last opportunity,
You miss the Wolverine-Nebraska
mat mayhem to be staged right after
the basketball game tomorrow night
and you've missed the last home per-
formance of the finest all-around
crew of grapplers Cliff Keen has
turned out in years.
You'll have missed more. You'll
have deliberately cheated yourself
of seeing the biggest wrestling spec-
tacle ever stagedat this Midwestern
The show will attain the carnival
proportions found at Eastern schools
where wrestling is the major winter
sport. The Varsity Band will be on
hand to spark the noise and cheering.
Cheer leaders will direct yells for in-
dividual performers. And with the
burden of proof full upon them after
all these extensive preparations for
hepping them up, the Varsity mat-
men declare as one that their part of
the program will in return be highly
satisfactory indeed.
Wolverine Newcomer
The humdinger of the evening will
be the 145 pound fray which pairs
off Nebraska's undefeated ace, Newt
Copple, against Michigan's Jonny
Johnson. Today Johnny is a distinct
nonentity to campus wrestling fol-
lowers. Tomorrow night he will no
longer be. 'In his collegiate debut,
the newcomer from Tulsa, Okla., will
be out to demonstrate to the public
-and Newt Copple-how to wrestle,
Panhandle style.
When Newt's brother Ed crosses
with either Marv Becker or Herbie
Barnett at 155 pounds there'll be
fireworks too. The tip-off on this
weightier Copple is that he lasted
into th efinals of the very tough
Midwest Invitational Meet a month
Anyone who has seen Mary Becker
in action in recent weeks needs no
build-up of his ability. He's been
raw dynamite all along and would
indeed be the better choice against
this Copple cookie because Herbie is
a natural 145 pounder and would
thus be at a significant weight dis-
Mystery Heavyweight Bout
About the heavyweight brawl all
we know is that no one will fall
asleep while it's in progress. Nebras-
ka's Herb Jackson is 240 pounds
worth of rugged if jelly-like football
flesh who a week ago beat the
heavyweight on a very highly rated
Iowa team.
In contrast a definite aura of mys-
tery surrounds the Michigan entry
in this division. Johnny Greene has
some sort of undetermined ailment
which makes it very doubtful wheth-
er he will see action tomorrow, and
to cover all emergencies Cliff Keen
has been hurriedly attempting to
whip several gridders into shape, of
whom Bill Pritula and Bill Kuyper
have been getting special attention.
But brethren, keep your eyes on
this finale for the evening. There is
every indication that the Wolverine
coach is to open a surprise package
at that time, a very surprising pack-
age indeed. And this is not just
Little Trouble In Lower Weights
As for the other matches we really
don't know from nothin'. The first
three entries on the Husker roster

were pinned in jig} time by their
Iowa adversaries a week ago, which
may be an indication that Dick
Kopel,bBunny Anderson and Ray
Deane will not have too much trouble
with Meyer Euoka, Frank Messer-
smith and Ken Miller respectively.
Finally, the two most techniquely
polished and powerful Varsity mat-
men, Jim Galles and Bill Courtright
to be specific, face in Nebraska's
Ray Starostka and George Cockle a
brace of gentlemen who appear to be
neither too polished nor too powerful.
Which, however, is as near to calling
the turn as this department cares
to go.

Cindermen Shoou
Power To Cop
(Special to The Daily)
EAST LANSING, Feb. 14.-Dis-
playing a brand of power sel-
dom exhibited so early in the sea-
son, the Wolverine track squad raised
the curtain with a resounding thud
on its 1942 indoor activties in a tri-
angular meet with Michigan State
and Michigan Normal at East Lan-
sing this afternoon.
Running up a total of 641%2 points
to the Spartans' second place score

, Early Season
Triangular Meet
Davis had just established in the
qualifying heat.
Thomas also legged his way .to a
surprising victory over Huron Whitey
Hlad in the 75 yard low hurdles, set-
ting a new meet and Field House
record of 8.5 seconds in this event.
Hlad bumped his leg going over the
first hurdle, which slowed his pace
considerably, but Thomas' time was
the same as that turned in by Hlad
in the preliminary heat, so that no
credit should be taken away from the
speedy Wolverine because of Hlad's
The efforts of the Huron timber-
topper did not go unrewarded, how-
ever. Taking the wooden barriers in
perfect stride, the sensational Hlad
hurdled to a win in the 75 yard highs
in the amazing time of 9 seconds,
which equals the world record for
the hurdle event at that distance
and which rings up a new meet
record 3/10 of a second better than
that which Hlad himself set last
Ufer Breaks Records
The third big gun of the Michi-
gan offense today, quarter-miler Bob
Ufer, ran the finest race of his career
in the 440 and in so doing ruined
what was to have been the best
event of the afternoon, by breaking
the tape more than 10 yards ahead
of Huron Joe Matyunas.
This quarter-mile event Was to
have been the closest race of the
meet, with Ufer and Matyunas be-
lieved to have been so nearly equal in
ability that nobody would attempt to
predict the winner before the meet
started. Ufer quickly proved how
wrong the dopesters were, however,
by taking the lead on the first turn
of the two-lap race and sprinting the
entire distance ahead of the Huron
flash, turning in a time of 48.8 sec-
onds, almost two full seconds better
than the former meetmark, and also
breaking the Field House record as
1 well as establishing a new Michigan
Varsity indoor record.
The Wolverines shoved one more
Field House record into oblivion as
Dave Matthews turned on the heat
in the last lap of the half-mile race
to cross the finish line in 1:56.4 sec-
onds. John Roxborough, Michigan
sophomore, nosed out the Spartans'
Walter Mack to take a surprising
second place in this event.
Meet Notre Dame Next
Ernie Leonardi's victory in the
two-mile stint, the showing made by
John Ingersoll, Will Ackerman and
Willis Glas in the mile run, and the
win turned in by the mile relay
team all added to Michigan's total
volume of points and did much to
bolster the hopes of the Wolverines
for another successful track season.
The Michigan cinder aggregation
is scheduled to meet a very power-
ful Notre Dame team at Yost Field
House next Friday night in what
promises to be the best meet ever
staged on a local cinder track.

has cracked the record, but since it
wasn't made in the Big Ten Meet it
doesn't count in the official books.
Capt. Dobby Burton turned in the
best Michigan performance in the
100 yard freestyle to date as he
sprinted the distance in :53.2. Mann
switched his lineup, using Burton in
the 100 and Gus Sharemet in the 50,
but the change didn't benefit Share-
met as it did the Wolverine vest-
pocket battleship. The big Maize and
Blue senior had to be content with
third place behind teammate Bruce
Allen in the shorter event. Allen's
winning time was :24.8..
Continuing his winning ways,
Michigan's dorsal star Dick Reidl
breezed home first in the 150 yard
backstroke, with Ted Horlenko coun-
tering the second place points. The
Wolverine backstroke ace required
1:39.7 for his winning effort, keeping
up with the times which have char-
acterized his performances on the
Maize and Blue midwestern tour.
Not to be outdone, Jim Skinner,
national titleholder and husky Ann
Arbor junior, butterflyed his way to
another impressive victory in the 200
yard breaststroke with John Share-
met finishing second to Skinner's
2:26.8 time.
Walt Stewart, Wolverine sopho-
more, once again copped the 440 yard
freestyle-this time churning the dis-
tance in 5:04.8. The Michigan crew
also swept the relay contests. Redl,
Skinner and Gus Sharemet teaming
together to win the 300 yard medley
in 2:59.7, while Patten, Lou Kivi,
Allen, and Sharemet again captured
the 400 yard freestyle relay, lopping
one second off their last night's time
against Northwestern as they stroked
the distance in 3:35.6.
With the end of the last relay the
Midwestern swing of the Wolverine
mermen came to successful close.
Smothering all opposition the Mann-
ators submerged the tank crews of
Ohio State, Northwestern and the
Boilermakers since they left Ann Ar-
bor last Tuesday night.
Warmerdam Leaps High
For New Vault Record
BOSTON, Feb. 14. -(P)-- Corny
Warmerdam, the 28-year-old San
Francisco schoolmaster who holds all
the world pole vaulting records, made
the highest one in history, 15 feet
74 inches, on his third and final try
at that height before a 13,000 crowd
at the 53rd Boston A.A. Track Games

of 35%/2 and the Hurons 30 points,
the Wolverines shattered four meet
records and three Jenison Field
House marks, and trampled into the
dust any hopes which the SpartansI
or Michigan Normal might have had!
of breaking Wolverine cinder supre-
macy in the state.
Much of- the credit for the volume
of points amassed by the Wolverines
must go to Michigan's high-scoring
triumvirate of track, Frank McCar-
thy, Al Thomas and Bob Ufer. Com-
peting in four events, McCarthy
copped first place in the broad jump
with a leap of 23 feet 24 inches
which was more than two inches bet-
ter than the meet record which he
himself-set last year.
The versatile McCarthy also grab-
bed second place in the high jump
and high hurdle events, and placed
third in the 75 yard low hurdles.
The honor of being the only en-
trant today to garner wins in two
events goes to Al Thomas, speedy
Wolverine sprinter. Blazing out of
the starting blocks like a shot out of
a gun, Thomas streaked across the
finish line in the 75 yard dash in
7.6 seconds, just a step ahead of
Michigan State's Hugh Davis, and
broke the new meet record which
