Sextet Meets
Tigers Twice
This Weekend
Colorado College Favored
Although Both Teams
Have Mediocre Record
Ten Wolverine hockey players bid
adieu to a freezing Ann Arbor at
1:37 p.m. today anid point their
skates toward Colorado Springs,
the land where they play golf in
mid-winter (Chamber of Commerce
Meeting Colorado College's fast-
skating sextet tomorrow and Satur-
day nights, the Maize and Blue team
will have one of the biggest tests on
its hands.
Neither Record Red Hot
A record book comparison between
the two squads reveals very little
diffbrence in potential strength.
While Michigan has won one, tied
one and lost eight in the current sea-
son, the Tigers have won three and
tied two in eleven battles.
But additional facts tell a different
story. Colorado opened up its twelve-
game schedule in a fashion which
was very dissimilar to previous sea-
sons. Its club, however, has moved
ahead with leaps and bounds. Which
all means that Eddie Lowrey's puck-
men are going to tangle with a team
which is just now beginning to reach
its predicted peak.
For Michigan we have a quite
different story. Although also start-
ing out weakly, the Wolverines
haven't seemed to be getting any-
where. Whereas the Tigers haven't
been beaten in their last three starts
against two of the best squads on the
West Coast, Michigan has won but
one in its last three contests. And
in those last three games, the Maize
and Blue sextet has scored but four
goals, while their opponents have
poked in 17.
Colorado College's six-shooters are
loaded with plenty of power, with
two or three players singled out for
special capabilities. Spike Wilson,
Chick Ross and Bob Scarlett played
all-important parts last year when
the -Tigers beat and tied Michigan,1
7-3 and" 1-1.
Wilson Great Player
Wilson is a big, rangy center from
Canada, and was last year acclaimed
by coaches and sports writers on the
Pacific Coast the greatest player in
college hockey. He is fast and has an
excellent shooting eye. Ross was the
Tiger captain last year, and, in addi-
tion to being a fine offensive player,
he plays one whale of a game at
right defense.

Irish Track Team Given Edge
Over Varsity Here Tomorrow

Michigan's long-standing jinx over
the Notre Dame track team will have
to do double-duty when the Irish and
the Wolverines clash in Yost Field
House tomorrow night, because for
the first time in many long years, the
Irish will go into the contest as pre-
meet favorites.
As the dopesters have pointed out,
however, this edge which the Irish
apparently hold over the Wolverines
on paper might not be so easy to
shift onto the track when tomorrow
night rolls around. Many are the
angles involved in this meet and any
breaks falling in the direction of the
Wolverines might very well give them
another victory.
Third Place Important
Most important of these many
angles is the fact that in a meet as
close as this one promises to be, the
outcome might very well depend on
the number of third places which
each team is able to take. From a
comparison of the records of the two
teams, Michigan, with a goodly nm-
ber of outstanding sophomores, holds
the edge in this department and so
has a better than even chance of
Michigan State
Matmen Rated
With The Best
Today's daily story or. the grapple
art will break precedent but let it.
It is a feature on a wrestling team
other than our own and in fact on
our arch rival, Michigan State.
A great team they have at East
Lansing. Last Saturday night the
Spartans met with do-or-die spirit
the Joe Louis of collegiate wrestling,
Oklahoma A. & M.
Yeah, State lost-by 13 seconds
and no more. And if this score
sounds a might amiss read on.
The critical match of the evening
turned out to be State captain Tuffy
Merrill's 155 pound affair with na-
tional champ Vern Logan of the
Oklahomas. Tuffy dropped the match
by a 5-4 count because of the A. &
M.-er's last second reversal. But with
only 13 seconds more time advantage
he'd have had another point and tied
the score. And in the overtime peri-
ods Tuffy would really have cleaned
house on the tired champ.
The official score was 19-15, Okla-
homa. It might well have been 18-16
the other way around.
Cut Jennings had come down from
128 to 121 pounds for the opening
bout, and spiked all rumors about
being dangerously enfeebled by the
dropped weight by pinning his puppy
in a very torrid :57.
The other humdinger of the eve-
ning was at 145 pounds. At precisely
8:34 the Spartan fans gave Bill Max-
well and the whole meet up as lost
when his shoulders were only centi-
meters from the mat.
At 8:44 the match was over. Max-
well the victor-on a pin. As if from
a hot foot he had exploded up from
his hopeless situation, turned the
Oklahoman over like a flapjack and
pasted his back to the canvas. Ten
seconds it took.
You see what I mean about these
State matmen. They don't know what
it means to give up. Men like that
a guy has got to write about.
Buckeye Tinc~lads Win
COLUMBUS, O., Feb. 18.-()-
Ohio State University opened its in-
door track season here today by
trampling the University of Pitts-
burgh, 76 to 28.
Bob Wright, ace Ohio sprinter, won
the 60-yard high hurdles, tied with
Stickel of Pitt in the 70-yard low
hurdles, and finished third in the
shot put and the 60-yard dash.

maintaining its traditional suprem-I
acy over the Irish.
Several events of the meet seem
to be toss-ups as far as picking the
winner is concerned, and in almost
every such case, the Wolverines have
two stars to carry their torch, with
the Irish possessing but one. This
would mean, obviously, that the
Michigan team will get the majority
of third places.
Take the 60 yard dash, for ex-
ample. Notre Dame has as its out-
standing runner in this event Jay
Gibson, who has covered the distance
in 6.4 seconds. Both Capt. Al PielI
and Al Thomas of the Wolverine
squad have equalled this time, how-
ever, so Michigan is assured of two
places here, with a possibility of cap-
turing the top two spots.
Low Hurdles Close
The low hurdles present almost the
same situation, but with the Wolver-
ines taking a probable first place'
here. Al Thomas turned in a record-
breaking 7.4 seconds for the event at
East Lansing last Saturday, which
is just one-tenth of a second better
than that ever run by Notre Dame's
Bill Dillon or Wolverine sophomore
Chuck Pinney.
In the other events, which are eas-
ier to predict, Michigan seems to
have the majority of third-place win-
ners also. Notre Dame is almost cer-
tain of winning the shot put with
its big weight star, Jim Delaney, hav-
ing tossed the iron nugget over 50
feet this year. That would leave
second place for Wplverine George
Ostroot and, on the basis of bast
performances, Michigan's Gene
Hirsch should capture third-place
honors here.
Half-Milers Strong
The Wolverines have a chance of
sweeping the half-mile race, with
Dave Matthews, Johnny Kautz, John
Roxborough, and Will Ackerman to
run for them. Even if Notre Dame's
Dick Tupta can sprint to a second
place for the Irish in this event,
the Wolverines are again assured of
one man finishing third.
Regardless of the overbalance of
power which the Irish hold on paper,
then, in actuality the two teams seem
to be about as evenly matched as two
equally-sized circles. And, if the Wol-
verine jinx is working at full time
tomorrow night, history might once
more repeat itself. If so, the Irish
will have to go victory-hungry for
another year.

Gym Program
Now Changed
For Freshmen
Plans Made To Prepare
Students For Routine,
Vigor Of Military Life
(Editor's note: This is the second of
a series of articles dealing with the
efforts of the Physical Education Do-
partment to aid in the nation's war
In answer to the United States
Army's cry, "we need 'em, tough.
rough and rugged," the Physical Ed-
ucation Department is bending all
efforts towards preparing the stu-
dents for the vigorous routines of
military life.
To do this, the freshman gym pro-
gram has been completely revised,
special courses for the selectees are
being offered, and the entire facili-
ties of the Physical Education De-
partment has been put at the dis-
posal of the ROTC and NROTC.
Dr. Elmer Townsley of the Water-
man Gymnasium, said yesterday that
"the new freshman health program
had been designed to emphasize
conditioning rather than skills. Ac-
tivities that build up the student's
strength and endurance are being
stressed. Naturally some of these
new sports will not be quite as enjoy-
able as the old ones, but the need is
so great I feel that the objection is
"According to reports from the
Army officers and the selectees, the
ones who make the best soldiers are
those who have had a considerable
amount of work in Physical Educa-
tion," Dr. Townsley pointed out.
For the upperclassmen who will
enter the military service soon as
selectees, the department is offering
a special short term course. Activi-
ties in this class will be confined to
those that are of special use to the
student in his later Army life. Dr.
Townsley, who conducts 'this class,
urges all prospective selectees to re-
port to the Waterman Gymnasium
between 4 and 5 p.m. Saturday for
the next meeting of the group.
On Wednesday evenings a special
class for the NROTC is offered in
boating. Students in V-7 or V-5 who
are interested in taking part in this
special Navy program are urged to
contact NROTC headquarters any
time this week,

The invasion is at hand. And no
army, no squadron of interceptor
planes, or no battery of anti-aircraft
guns can stop it.
Only Michigan's championship crew
of swimmers can halt the invaders
in their tracks and retain the long-
standing Wolverine supremacy of the
natatorial world.
For mighty Yale, universally ac-
claimed as one of the greatest swim-
ming teams in history, will arrive in
Ann Arbor tomorrow in advance of
its battle with the far-famed Wol-
verines in the Sports Building Pool
No fanfare will accompany the sen-
sational Yale crew when they reach
their destination here tomorrow. In-
stead, grim determination to end the
Michigan rule of the waves will nark
the arrival of the Eastern marvels.
But equally grim and equally de-
termined will be the foe of this Nep-
tune of the East. No Michigan team
has ever worked harder for one meet
than has Coach Matt Mann's present
aggregation. Never has one group
of Maize and Blue color-bearers
pointed for one opponent as has this
Wolverine swimming team. And it
will take Michigan's best to turn
back the growling Bulldog threat. .
In the last two years only one team
has stood in Yale's path to the na-

mers report to the Sports Build-
ing Pool at 5 p.m. today for an

tional crown - Michigan. Besides
beating the New Haven outfit for the
National Collegiate title two years in
succession, the Wolverines hold a
three to two edge in the dual meet
history of thedtwo schools. When
the teams meet here Saturday night,
the Elis will be resolved to even the
score. But Michigan will be just as
resolved to remain a stumbling block
on the Yale road to supremacy.
Fancy Diving
And when the huge crowd, which
will jam every inch of available space
in the Michigan natatorium Satur-
day night, witnesses the fancy diving
duel, they will see for themselves a
prime example of the intense rivalry
which exists between the Wolverines
and the Bulldogs. For the men re-
garded as the two greatest divers in
collegiate circles today, Strother (T-
Bone) Martin of Michigan and Jim
Cook of Yale, will vie for the import-
ant first place points.
Martin has already disposed of his
most serious Western Conference
threats, Frank Dempsey and Charlie
Battermnan of Ohio State. The only
blemish on the stocky Wolverine sen-
ior's record is a defeat suffered at

Eli Mermen Arrive Tomorrow
For Saturday's Important Meet

the hands of Howie Jaynes of North-
western, a defeat which was incurred
on the low board where 'Martin has
had no practice this year.
Cook For Yale
In Cook, Martin will be meeting the
toughest test of his career. The Yale
springboard star placed a close sec-
ond in both the National Intercolle-
giates and National AAU meets last
year, and his performances of the
present season offer every indication
that he has lost none of his spectacu-
lar form.
The diving, however, won't be the
only highlight of the meet. Every
event, from the opening 300 yard
medley relay to the closing 400 yard
freestyle relay, promises to be as hot-
ly contested as any race ever staged
in the Michigan pool.
Last year, when the Maize and
Blue tankers had one of their strong-
est teams and when Yale was weaker,
than usual, the two schools were un-
able to arrange a dual meet. This
year, with both teams on a more even
par, the Wolverines have been re-
turned to the Eli schedule. Satur-
day night will tell whether or not
Yale made a mistake.

Hawkeyes' Record Best
Since 1938; Chapman
Is Leading Iowa Scorer
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan s gasket-
oal squad takes to the road tomor-
row for the last time this year when
it goes West to face Iowa at Iowa
City on Saturday night and Chicago
at Chicago Monday night.
Iowa, playing with just about the
same team that it did last season,
has already bettered its Conference
record of a year ago. The Hawkeyes
have won six out of 10 battles so far
in the present campaign while the
best they could do in 1940 was cap-
ture four games out of the 12 played.
Not since 1938 has a Hawkeye ball
team done that well. -
Coach Rollie Williams' cagers have
proven to be a second half team.
In three of their six victories they
have come from behind to win in the
last few minutes of play. They made
up a six-point deficit in the Wiscon-
sin game, eight points in the Ohio
State battle, and four points in the
Northwestern contest last Monday
night. In the Purdue game, the
Hawkeyes were beliihd 29-16 at half
time and then put on a rally that
left them just one point short of a
Big gun in the Iowa attack is Tom-
my Chapman, who scored 21 points
in the Wildcat battle. He has hit
the hoop for 122 points and stands
high among the Conference leaders
in scoring.
Although he is out of the Univer-
sity Hospital and walking about, Leo
Doyle, Wolverine guard, is still sport-
ing a patch over his right eye, and
Oosterbaan expressed doubt whether
the lanky junior would be able to
make the trip to Iowa and Chicago.
The Maize and Blue squad went
through a good two hour workout
yesterday afternoon. During the
practice session, Paul White, one of
Fritz Crisler's outstanding sophomore
gridders of last season, put on a black

Faime Is Fleeting*...
FAME IS FLEETING, someone has
said, and one need only take a
look at the record to prove that state-
ment as true as the day is long, to
coin a phrase.
As a matter of fact, it's even a
little harder than that because many
of the athletes who achieved undy-
ing fame in recent years don't even
own a little corner in the record book
which they can call their own.
If you don't believe it, take a look
at the facts contained in the follow-
ing quiz. All of the "immortals" men-
tioned here made their places in the
sun fairly recently. Yet, we'll wager
that there will be more than one
you won't remember, unless you're a
pretty avid fan.
1-Name the outfielder who came
up from the minors in mid-season a
few years back to spark his team to
a pennant and world's championship.
During the world's series that year,
he turned in what many observers
considered the greatest catch ever
made in a post-season classic. In
return for all this, his team-mates
voted him a half share of the series
2-How about that English bank
clerk who was considered a cinch to
break the world's record in the mile
at the Princeton Invitational Tour-
ney in 1938? When the event was run
off, the Briton was unintentionally
bumped by Blaine Rideout and fell.
There was considerable fuss over the
affair for a while and then the lad
went back to England.
3-Name the jockey who rode more
winners than any other in 1940, win-
ning the crown amid reams of pub-
licity on the last day of the year. A
few days later, at Agua Caliente, the
little jock's mount fell and he was
4-And there was that infielder
who paced the New York Giants to
a pennant, His indomitable spirit
won the affection of fans the country
over and reached its peak when, after
being injured, he wired the club,
"They can't beat us. I'm on my way."
5-Who is the British golfer who
won the British open so many times
it was considered his tournament?
A few years back, he played and won
a 72-hole match with Olin Dutra for
the world's professional champion=
6-How about the boxer who upset
the dope by going 15 rounds with Joe
Louis when everyone predicted an
early kiockout? He was the first
man to go the distance with the

Brown Bomber. He never fought an

7-Then, we might recall the Na-
tional Hockey League defenseman
who was acclaimed the most valuable
player in the circuit during the 1939-
40 season, just two years back. He
doesn't really belong in this quiz be-
cause he's not really forgotten yet.
But few athletes have had as rapid a
fall from the top.
8-To get back home, can you
name the Michigan basketball player,
who in his sophomore year, led the
Wolverines in scoring? The follow-
ing season, he came out for the squad
but decided to give it up and devote
more time to his studies. He grad-
uated last June.
