THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Hume Boys Are Best Bets
To Make Ken Doherty's
1943 Varsity Squad
By ED ZALENSKI
Examinations, the ever-present
bogey of all athletes, are over and
this year's freshman track squad
came through with only a few casu-
alties, no doubt pleasant news to
frosh track coach, Chester Stack-
house, after some of the severe jolts
he has experienced in past seasons.
So, from now until the middle of
March it will be hard work and
sweat for the ambitious trackmen.
And the lads who show promise will
be rewarded in April with indoor
numerals. Less than half of the 75
frosh thinclads who are working out
regularly will hit the jackpot for a
blue running shirt adorned with the
maize of "1945."
Hume Twins Good
Without doubt "Stack's" best bets
for varsity berths next season are the
twin torpedoes from Cannonsburg,
Pa., Bob and Ross Hume. Of identical
ability, the Hume twins are above
average prospects. Both can run the
mile and half-mile races equally well.
Recently, they were shifted from
their usual event into the distance
run by the other twin, and both
broke records set by the other.
Eight other hopefuls constitute
the distance-running group of the
squad. Besides the Humes, there is
Art Upton, Bill Wheatley, Roy Wat-
Competing in freshman time
trials at the Field house yester-
day, Elmer Swanson, 190-pound
timber-topper from Detroit, tied
Chuck Pinney's 1940 frosh record
of 7.5 in the 65-yard low hurdles.
son, John Smart, Art Mancl and El-
mer Born in the mile and 880-yard
run, and Roy Currie and Desmond
Howarth in the tough two-mile grind.
There is no outstanding quarter-
miler on the squad, all the runners
being of equal ability. The boys who
are still showing improvement are
Ralph Gibson, Ernie Whi.tlock, Paul
Harsha, Bob Walker, Bill Osgood and
Wheatley. Harsha can be classed
with the Hume twins as fine varsity
The sprinters are average. Besides
Joe Egan, who compete in the broad
and high jump, there is Bob Becker,
Stuart Hines and Walker.
When "Stack" begins talking about
his hurdling prospects his face lights
up. And why not? He has three out-
standing timber-toppers in 190-
pound Elmer Swanson, rangy Russ
Reeder and Bill Osgood, brother of
a former Michigan hurdling ]ping.
All three compete in both low and
Weak In Field Events
The squad is weak in the field
events. Up to date there have been
no shot putters worth mentioning.
Only two have shown promise in the
pole vault, Truman Atkinson and
Ken Fryer, and in the high jump.
Egan and Lyman look. Five broad
jumpers who consistently jump bet-
ter than 20 feet are Osgood, Harsha,
Egan, Becker and Wilbur Hahn.
Athletes Urged To Place
By BART JENKS
If you hear moaning down at the
I-M Building these days it isn't be-
cause you have had one too many.
Just conceive having to hand in a
half-dozen term papers at once and
you have a reasonable idea of what
I-M Director Earl Riskey and right
hand man Verne Sprague feel like.
Up until three weeks ago every-
thing was, fine. Tournaments were
being run off according to schedule
and new ones were soon to get un-
derway. Then it happened. Twelve
thousand students and Messrs Riskey
and Sprague were stunned: Exam
dates changed. Along with the rest
the Riskey and Sprague duo made
a dive of the headache pills. Then
down to the I-M Building to be-
gin repairing the dariage wrought.
Schedules had to be changed and
prospective entrants in the coming
tourneys had to be informed of the
Open House day, March 18, is less
than a month away and on that date
the finals in six all-campus events
take place. This doesn't leave much
time in which to run them off. If
Elis Set World Mark In 400-Yard
Relay, Establish Two Pool Records

freestyle ever recorded in the Michi-
gan natatorium. Propelling his way
through the water with smooth, pow-
erful strokes, the impregnable Eli
leader lowered the pool record to
2:09.7, just one-tenth of a second
slower than the established American
mark and six-tenths better than the
former pool standard.
Close behind Johnson came Rene
Chouteau, who churned the distance
in 2:11 while Maize and Blue ace
Johnny Patten had to be satisfied
with the third place his 2:11.9 netted
Patten In Relay
But not until the last event of the
night did the biggest thrill and the
most spectacular Bulldog perform-
ance come. Matt Mann, realizing that
his only hope of keeping the score
down was to withhold Patten from
the 440 yard freestyle and use him
in the 400 yard freestyle relay, sent
his strongest array of sprinters into
the closing relay, to battle the record-
After holding Colorado College
to a 2-2 tie going into the third
period Friday night, the Wolver-
ine puck team's defense fell apart
and the Tigers went on to win 6-2.
Last night the Tigers made it
two in a row by whipping the Wol-
smashing Elis for the seven points
awarded the winner.
Ordinarily Mann's strategy would
have worked. The Michigan quartet
lopped 7.2 seconds off their best pre-
vious time to finish in 3:29.4, but
it wasn't good enough.
Coach Bob Kiphuth of Yale had
entered his greatest strength, his
famed freestyle relayers, in that clos-
ing race and they outbid the Wol-
verines for victory to break the
world's record they had set last year
by one-tenth of a second, blasting
through the waters in the phenom-
enal time of 3:27.7.
Eli's Break Record
The record-breaking Eli quartet
was composed of Frank Lilley (53.5),
Dick Kelly (51), Ed Pope (52) and
Johnson (51). The Michigan crew of
Capt. Dobby Burton (53), Lou Kivi
(52.6), Patten (52), and Gus Share-
met (51.8), gave their all - but the.
might of the Elis was too much for
even the desperate Wolverines.
Although the miraculous Bulldogs
took everything but the diving board
back to New Haven, they must share
some of their glorious victory spoils
with Michigan's Gus Sharemet.
Swimming against Johnson and
Pope in the 100 yard freestyle, Share-
met was facing the two best men in
the nation on the basis of season's
clockings. Until the last turn he was
in the lead. But he couldn't match
Johnson's closing sprint, and when
it was all over he and Pope were
tied for second in 52.2, while John-
son was pressed to 51.8 for his vic-

Hein to five.
Soderquist took scoring honors with
15 points while Siegel and Tommy
Chapman, leader of the Hawkeye
scorers all season, connected for ten
apiece. Mandler, despite his early
exit, led Michigan with ten.
The victory was Iowa's seventh in
11 starts and the Wolverines ninth
defeat of the year.
No. 10 For Illini
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.. Feb. 21.-()-1
Illinois moved within two victories
of clinching a title tie in the Big Ten
basketball race tonight by stopping
Ohio State. 48-31. It was the Illini's
10th triumph in 11 conference games
and they have four yet to play, while
holding a two-game edge over their
nearest pursuer, Indiana.
The Buckeyes, playing without
their star guard, Max Gecowets, gave
the leaders a terrific battle through-
out the first half, trailing only 22-18
at the intermission.
Ohio State closed the gap to 26-24
early in the second half but then
the Illini held the visitors scoreless
for 7% minutes while shooting ahead
to a 38-24 lead. With six minutes
left Coach Douglas Mills sent in the
Fred Fisher, Buckeye forward, was
the game's high scorer with 16 points.
He made five field goals in the first
half to keep his team in the running
up to the intermission and for a
few minutes thereafter. Ken Menke
bagged 12 points to pace the Illini.
MADISON, Wis., Feb. 21.-()-
Wisconsin retained a first division
berth in the Big Ten Conference bas-
ketball race by trouncing Northwest-
ern, 59 to 47, in a rough, free scoring
game tonight before 13,100 specta-
Both teams opened fast, but the
Badgers outlasted the Wildcats to
take a 34 to 30 advantage at half
Northwestern wiped out this deficit
and took a four point lead early in
the second half.
With the Wisconsin forward line
faltering, guards Ed Scheiwe and
Fred Rehm took over and added 10
points to the Badger total, Scheiwe
getting three baskets, Rhem two.
The game was stopped several
times when fans protested decisions.

Martin gave the Eli star a nip and
tuck battle before finally succumb-
ing to the Bulldog's superior form
with a 397.5 tally. Not until the
eighth dive did Cook forge into the
lead. Sandy Thompson edged
Wolverine Lou Haughey for third
place by one-tenth of a point, scor-
ing a total of 341.7 markers.
Michigan's only individual title-
holder, Jim Skinner, met his match
in Yale's breaststroke star, Johnny
Meyer. The Eli butterflyed his way
to the best time of his life, 2:24.7, to
beat the Maize and Blue junior by a
scant two yards in the 200 yard

corded the fastest race of his career

latter also racked up his best time
to date, 1:37.3, to win the 150 yard
backstroke. With Patten not en-
tered, Rene Chouteau, brilliant Yale
distance star, won the 440 in 4:53.1,
with Walt Stewart of Michigan press-
ing him all the way.
The Michigan crew fought with
everything it had, but it was facing
a team which has never been
matched. Matt Mann echoed the
views of his aggregation when he
said, "If it had to be, im glad it was
against a truly great Yale team."
And that Yale is, the greatest the
world has ever known.
