making two assists. In the Maize and
Blue contests at Minneapolis several
weeks ago he was the bulwark of the
Minnesota offense and defense. Time
and again, the plucky Gopher center
outraced the Michigan forwards to
come in on goalie Hank Loud for easy
Next to Arnold, the most feared
man in the Minnesota lineup is Capt.
Al Aggleton, one of the best stick
handlers ever to don a Maroon and
Gold uniform. Hockey experts con-J
sider Aggleton and Arnold as one of
the greatest scoring pairs in collegi-
ate hockey.
Lowrey is counting heavily on Capt.
Paul Goldsmith. The towering Wol-
verine center played his best hockey
of the year last week against the
Colorado Tigers and has been looking
good in practice all week.
Michigan hockey teams tradition-
ally play over their heads against
Minnesota and tonight should be no
exception. Goldsmith said yesterday,
"It's a real pleasure to whip those
Gophers, so I think we're going out
there and have some pleasure."
Lowrey is revamping his lineup in
an effort to assure a Wolverine vic-
tory. He will send Bob Kemp and
Max Bahrych into the starting for-
ward line with Goldsmith at center.
This tiio will be supported by Johnny
Gillis and Ed Reichard at the de-
fense positions while Hank Loud will
carry out his usual dependable job in
the nets.

0 The Whole Dann Business
0 Weber And Revolvers
S '-Daily Sports Editor


THERE'S A GUY going to school I
up at Michigan State College in
East Lansing. That's okay by us,
of course, for lots of other fellows
have made the same mistake. But
this one is different.
He is brazenly capitalizing on the
famous old surname of Dann-a
name immortalized in journalistic
circles by the two Dann boys on
the Michigan Daily, Myon and
Alvin. The guy cashing in on their
reputation up in Spartan country
is Marshall Dann. That's the first
count against him.
BORN at the early age of five years,
Marsh has never exactly re-
covered. He is now a sports writer,
you see. That's the second indict-
ment. Marshall worked for a while
on the Free Press until the winter
quarter at State when he reentered
school and became sports editor of
the Michigan State News.
But the third, and far most seri-
ous, charge against Marsh is that
he is nothing more than a type-
writer athlete. Mention was made
recently of a revival of the classic
old athletic rivalry between the
Ann Arbor sports correspondents
and the East Lansing ditto. In
fact, it was more than a mere
MENTION of resumption of hostili-
ties. It was a direct challenge from
the former to the latter.
AT THE RISK of boring whatever
readers The Daily may have
rounded up this morning, here is a

direct quotation of the historic ulti-
matum flung down to the Statemen.
ERS' ASS'N: "How about a test of
skill on the hardwoods between a
crack quintet we can round up
and whatever motley crew you can
MARSHALL DANN: "Let's make
it spaget and beer at twenty paces
A.A.S.W.A.: "If basketball is too
strenuous for you, then name your
own sports-track, softball, swim-
ming or necatoes."
M.D.:"Spaget and beer."
AND THUS the matter now stands.
Our Daily sports staff basketball
team, easy victors over the edits, aug-
mented by Paul Chandler and Vic
Reed, local correspondents, is casting
about foreign fields for new victims.
From that barren land 58 miles north
and west of here comes only that
monotonous chant: "Spaget and
beer." Your move now, Mr. Dann.
SPORTS HASH: Wally Weber,
freshman football coach and
scout de luxe, likes to tell of the time
he was a desk sergeant in the police
force at Mt. Clemens . . . perhaps
impressed with his own importance,
one day Wally propped his feet on
tle desk, leaned back and twirled his
gun around his index finger a la
Hollywood . . . the gun shot off,
sending a bullet through the wall
. . . and Wallie hastily shoved a cal-
endar over the hole.
Minnesota's football guard and
National Collegiate heavyweight
wrestling champion, Butch Levy,
has incurred a foot injury ending
his mat career . . . this increases
Al Wistert's chances to sneak into
the Conference title class . . .
while appearing at a banquet in
Lansing some time back, Merv
I Pregulman was thrown for a loss
by dozens of young autograph
WRESTLING Coach Cliff Keen re-
ceived some material from a Chi-
cago hotel soliciting his patronage
by the time the Conference cham-
pionships roll around in two and a
half weeks . . . its effect was some-
what lessened, though, by the ad-
dress which read:
"Mr. Clifford Keen

Rifle Team Coach."

Cinder Squad
To Face Weak
Panthers Here
Bob Ufer Ready To Crack
440 Record; Michigan
Made Heavy Favorite
Embodying little of the ferocity
and very little of the growl which
their name implies, the Pitt Panthers
will invade Yost Field House tomor-
row night for a dual meet with the
strong Wolverirne cinder squad which
has swept its fAst two meets of the
season in impressive style.
Already the victims of several set-
backs this year, the worst of which
was a 76-28 lacing handed them by
Ohio State two weeks ago, the Pan-
thers are expected to afford the
Michigan squad little more than a
warm-up for the more important
Western Conference meet next week.
From comparative records of the best
times turned in by both teams this
season, the only events in which Pitt
might score a win over the Wolver-
ines are the 60 yard dash, the low
hurdles and the pole vault.
Pitt Boasts Stars
Even with Michigan favored so
heavily over the Panthers, the rosters
of both squads include several stars
who are potentially capable of break-
ing the existing meet records, and
if the Wolverines are forced enough
by Pitt's runners, it is very likely
that tomorrow night will see several
marks fall by the wayside.
Bobby Ufer, Michigan's ace quar-
ter-miler, who holds the distinction
of having run the fastest 440 yards
in Wolverine Varsity competition, has
given indication that he will be out
to take a crack at the 440 record of
49.1 seconds. This mark, set byI
Pitt's Johnny Woodruff in 1937, is
also the Field House record.
Ufer Still Best
Already acclaimed as probably the
best quarter-miler in the Conference
this year, Ufer ran his favorite dis-
tance in the phenomenal time of
48.8 seconds in Michigan's first meet
at East Lansing two weeks ago. In
the Notre Dame meet last Friday
night, the speedy Wolverine held
back in the open quarter-mile run,
knowing that he would have to an-
chor the mile relay team later in the
evening, but still turned in a time
only one-tenth of a second slower
than the Field House mark.
Pitt's relay team does not offer the
Wolverines as much of a threat as
did that of the Irish, so that Ufer
will probably go all-out in the 440-
yard event tomorrow night. The only
thing that seems likely to prevent the
quarter-mile king from setting a new
meet and Field House record is the
fact that he may not be pressed
enough by the other runners in the
event to force him to run his fastest

"Beat the Phi Delts" is the cry
which is going around these days.
And twice in two days the Phi Delts
have been nosed out for top honors.
In the Inter-Fraternity Relays they
were pushed into fourth place behind
Chi Psi, Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma
Phi Epsilon. Then on Thursday
night they were beaten by Phi Kappa
Psi. 3-0. in the water polo final. It
was a doubly sweet victory for PKPsi
as the same Phi Delts had previously
trimmed them by 15 points in the
finals of the dual swimming. Jim
Edwards and Bill Sessions scored all
the winners' points.
Though edged out of two firsts
the PDTs are doing pretty well for
themselves in the all-year point
standings as is seen below. With eight
sport completed they are as follows:;
Phi Delta Theta. .......... 6211
Chi Phi .................. 546

Sigma Phi Epsilon ..,.. ...
Sigma Chi..............
Phi Gamma Delta.........
Delta Tau Delta...........

Turning to an all-campus event,
handball, we find Ray Snyder the
new champion by virtue of a decisive
21-10, 21-5 victory over Jerry Fried-
man in the final. Earlier Snyder
defeated Mel Silver, the fraternity
champion, by a similar score.
Meanwhile, over in the Residence
Halls League, the handball cham-
pionship race has narrowed down to
two teams, Fletcher Hall (23-4) and
< Winchell House (19-2). The team
which can finish with the higher
percentage will be declared winner.

Matmen Finish
Big Ten Trials
This Saturday,
Last Saturday the Varsity matmen
beat Indiana, 25-13. This Saturday
they meet Ohio State at Columbus.
This will conclude the home crowd's
test runs in preparation for the Con-
ference meet on March 13-14. And
to come straight out with it, they
won't have proved a thing.
Indiana and Ohio State are two
of the season's feeblest aspirants for
the Big Ten wrestling crown. Iowa
is pre-doped to cop the trophy, Min-
nesota is a powerful defending cham-
pion, Purdue and Illinois are both
tearing through their schedules in
high gear. But the Hoosiers and the
Buckeyes are each having their
troubles, and to shade things fine it
would appear that the latter is even
the frailer of the two inasmuch as its
win column remains a very blank
one after four meets.
The Buckeyes registered their most
creditable showing against Michigan
State when they bowed. by a 19-11
count. Which score may not seem
too much like the hairline decision
variety, but two of the matches were
decided by a single point.
Jim Bradfield at 175 pounds ap-
pears to be the steadiest performer
for the Ohioans. He has won twice
and pinned the Spartans' Frank Fos-
ter when they met. Another pretty
adept Buckeye performer is welter-
weight Joe Stora, who likewise has
racked up a brace of victories.
Cliff Keen looks for some pretty
rough going in the lighter weights
Saturday evening. Bruce Kesselring
at 121 pounds gave Michigan State's
Herbie Thompson a good going over
before being nosed out 7-6. Davey
Jones' won and lost record in his 128
pound scraps isn't exactly terrific but
he's been dropping close ones and
it is no secret that this weight brack-
et on the Michigan squad is not ex-
actly overmanned. And, finally,
lightweight Keith Wolfe is expected
to be a pretty dangerous duker
against whom Ray Deane can do no
playing around.

Cagers Meet
Ru ged Frosh
In, Sc rimm1flge
Assistant Coach Ernie McCoy, who
is currently pulling the strings be-
hind the Michigan basketball team,
sent his Varsity crew up against the
rugged Maize and Blue freshman
squad yesterday afternoon and found
out that the Varsity could get a good
workout this way.
The lineups of both teams were
juggled frequently as every man on
both squads saw action and after a
slow start, McCoy's squad overpow-
ered the yearlings to the tune of 63
to 48. At the end of the first quar-
ter the frosh had run up a 21 to 12
lead, but the Varsity came back and
was ahead 31 to 28 at the half. The
lead changed hands several times in
the last half, but in the closing min-
utes McCoy's reserves got hot to run
up its substantial margin of victory.
Mikulich Stands Out
Standouts on the freshman team
were Bill Mikulich, Bob Wiese, Walt
Pipp and Don Lund. Mikulich tied
Mel Commn of the Varsity for scor-
ing honors as they both dropped in
12 points. Wiese and Pipp scored five
and four points, respectively, while
Lund turned in some fine defensive
work by holding Comin down as Big
Mel was hot. Wally Spreen, who has
been seeing quite a bit of action
lately at forward for the Varsity,
showed signs of improvement as he
flipped in four baskets.
Last Two Games
Michigan will play its last two
games of the 1942 season this week-
end as they face the hopeless Chi-
cago five Saturday night and the
powerful Purdue squad on Monday
night. Both games will be played at
Yost Field House. Coach McCoy is ex-
pecting little trouble from the Ma-
roons on Saturday eve as last Mon-
day the Wolverines easily defeated
them, 61 to 37. McCoy, who will
probably close the season as chief
guesser for the Wolverines since
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan is still in
Tucson, Ariz., said that the Windy
City five had plenty of shots at the
basket Monday, but that they just
didn't have the touch.

Riedl Shows Power - Swims

His Best- time -t

One thing, if nothing else, wa
brought to light in Yale's overwhelm
ing defeat of Michigan last Saturda
night-senior Dick Riedl is definite'
an improved swimmer.
Swimming against the Eli's Dann
Dannenbaum, who placed second i
the National Collegiates last yea
Riedl swam the fastest race of h
life Saturday. His time of 1:38 fla
bettered by six-tenths of a secon
his best previous clocking which h
did during his sophomore year whe
he won over Iowa's captain and ac
backstroker, Al Armbruster.
. Despite the fact that last seaso
and the previous campaign Dick wa
somewhat overshadowed by Bi
Beebe and Frannie Heydt, he sti
managed to take a second in the Con
ference meet last year, and a thir
the year before.
In his races to date this season
Dick has beaten Mark Follansbe
once and the Ohio State star sopho
more likewise can boast of a victor
over the Wolverine. At Columbus o
Feb. 11, Riedl edged Follansbee i
his specialty by doing 1:39.1, his bes

time this season previous to last
weeks' performance.
Dick will have his chance to show
that he is the best backstroker in the
Big Ten when he again faces Foll-
ansbee in the Conference meet here
on March 13 and 14. Two weeks
later he will come up against the best
that the country has to offer in the
National Collegiates at Harvard. It
is then that the varsity backstroker
is determined to give Dannenbaum
the race of his career. The Bulldog
ace pulled ahead in the last lap Sat-
urday night and Dick is resolved to
even the score.
