100-Yard Backstroke

Quintet Meets Marquette Tonight

Marquette Sniper

Wiese, Star
of First Tilt,
to Be Starter
Invding Hilitoppers,
Winners Last Year,
Boast Veteran Team
Michigan's quintet will face its sec-
ond opponent of the new season at
7:30 tonight when the Hilitoppers of
Marquette take the floor at the Yost
Field House. The battle shapes up as
one of the best tilts of the Wolverine
season as Marquette boasts of an all-
veteran squad with speed to spare.
Against this veteran five, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan will start three
sophomores and two senior lettermen.
Bob Wiese has been elevated to the
starting five because of his play
against Michigan State last week and
will round out the trio of sophs.
Wiese Will Start '
,Wiese will be at forward along with
$larold Anderson, whose offensive
play won him the starting nod. The
ether sophomore will be Dave Strack
at guard, who showed much spirit and
pep last week throughout the entire
battle. His play helped bring the Wol-
verines victory as he was one of the
few Michigan players to control the
ball off the backboard.
Capt. Jim Mandler will be at his
bld position of center and Leo Doyle
will start at guard to complete the
Michigan lineup. Ralph Gibert, who is
jtattling with Anderson for the start-
ksg forward spot, will probably be
a~e of the early replacements.
lisitors Are Seasoned
This lineup will pit an inexper-
iexced five with plenty of fire and
helght against the fast veteran Hill-
toppers. The Michigan squad, which
is one of the~ tallest in years, will
average six feet, three inches,. which
tops the Marquette quintet by three

'Crack at Axis Powers' Lures
McCarthy from Varsity Track

Unofficial Mark Is Set Before
Laig&e Crowd at Swim Fiesta
Betters Time Set by Kiefer; Jim Skinner
Shares Spotlight by Tyiing National Record

Varsity, Frosh
Matmen Clash
This Afternoon

Cut off 14 points from Michigan's
total in any of last season's dual
meets and you will have a fair idea
of what the loss of Frank McCarthy,
triple-threat track ace of the Wol-
verines, means to the 1943 squad.
McCarthy, who is regarded as
Michigan's most outstanding all-
around athlete since the days of Bill
Watson, is sailing on a forced scho-
lastic draft of 21 hours this term
with intentions of graduating in Jan-
uary. So, he decided to pass up his
final year of compettion.
Losis Will Be Felt
Asked why he decided to forego the
chance to have one more fling with
Coach Ken Doherty's Maize and Blue
thinclads, McCarthy decided that he
"wanted to get in the war to take a
crack at the Axis Powers." He is in
the United States Army Enlisted Re-
serve and expects to be called imme-
diately upon receiving his diploma
next znohth.
The loss of McCarthy who had spe-
cialized in the running high jump,
broad jump and the 'high hurdles,
will be hard to replace, but Coach
Doherty made no effort to change his
mind. "I'm sorry to see Frank leave
the scquad because I had counted a

lot on him, but the Army has first
call on him," Doherty stated.
A little ray of hope is the rapid de-
velopment of burly Elmer Swanson,
sophomore timber-topper, who should
be able to tie McCarthy's best time of
8.3 seconds in the 65-yard high hur-
dles during the coming indoor cam-
One-Man Track Team
Michigan may also come through
with a fair replacement in the high
jump as Bill Dale, a second-term
freshman, will be eligible for Varsity
competition in February. Dale
jumped 6 ft. 3 in. in high school.
McCarthy reached the peak of his
career last year during the indoor
season by amassing 14 points in dual
meets with both Notre Dame and
Pittsburgh. Against the Irish, he took
a first in the high hurdles and broad
jump and tied for first in the high
jump. In the Pitt meet, he took firsts
in the high hurdles, high jump, a
second in the broad jump and a third
in the low hurdles.
Although the intervention of the
war makes it impossible to fulfill,
McCarthy's aim had been the decath-
lon in the 1944 Olympics, especially
since he won the title at Cranbrook
Prep School.

Chandler's squad marks the first time
that a Marquette team has appeared
in Ann Arbor for over a decade. How-
ever, the two schools met last year
with the Hilltoi.pers downing the
Varsity, 49 t6 42, and it will be this
defeat which the Maize and Blue will
be gunning -to erase.
'MVarquette's opening team will see
Eririest Kivisto and Al Skat at for-
wards, rangy flay Kuffel at the pivot-
post, and Burton Bril and Jerry
Schudrowitz at guards. All these men
sawv action in last year's meeting.
Kuffel was the high scorer during

the 1941-42 campaign of Coach
Chandler's team and has been the
spearhead of the Marquette attack,
which has brought Chandler two vic-
tories in three tilts. The only loss
suffered was at the hands of a pow-
erful Wisconsin team.
Kuffel and Mandler should provide
the Wolverine fans with the best indi-.
vidual battles of the season as big Jim
paced the Varsity in scoring last year.
Kivisto also is one of the Marquette
offensive threats because of his de-
ceptive dribbling and speed-.

with a deadly eye for the long ones
positions withe othe hih-cong
Ernie Kivisto. He's a seasoned vet-
e ran.
Daily Sports Editor
THE MOST human story behind
sports war bond drives comes from
where you might expect,- a small
country club. This particular country
club is near Louisville, Ky. The story
was brought to light when Earl Ruby,
sports editor of the Louisville Courier-
Journal, wrote it for national Sports-
for-Victory campaign. We'll repeat it
to you as best we can, and our only
comment is, buy your share of stamps
and bonds.
Three members of an old golfing
foursome were seated in the locker
room. They had just completed
their usual Saturday round, their
twelfth since the war had called
their fourth member to duty.
"War bond rally tonight," re-
marked No. 1 as he pulled on a sock.
"You going?"
"Don't think so," said No. 2. "Wife's
planning a ride out in the country.
Anyway, I can't afford to draw any
money out of the business for bonds
right now."
No. 3 placed his highball on the
floor and pulled on his pants.
"What would I be doing at a war
bond rally? My car business is shot
and I'm looking for a way to keep
my family together."
No. 1 started to tie his Windsor
knot. "Don't know but what we'd
all be better off with a commission
like Ed," he drawled. "There he is
in Ireland, a morale officer, teach-
ing soldiers how to play golf and
softball. His wife's running his bus-
iness for him, and he doesn't have
a worry."
Just then a porter ambled into the
room. "Here's a postcard for you
gentlemen," he droned.
No. 1 took a quick glance. '"Hey, it's
from Ed! A postcard from our lieu-
tenant, the old rascal. Look, a picture
Gol CofcursNorther Ireland' he
read. "Well, here's wvhat he has to

Butler, Pa., Harry Holiday, Michi-
gan's sensational sophomore swim-
ming star, jumped into the national
limelight last night when he unoffi-
cialkr smashed Adolf Kiefer's world
record in the 100-yard backstroke
before an overflow crowd at the
Sports Building's Swim Gala.
Weighing over 200 pounds, the
swimming squad, cut his wa y through
the 100-yard distance in the unbe-
lievable time of 57 seconds, breaking
Adolf Kiefer's record by two-tenths
of a second.

Holiday shared the spotlight last
night with a teammate, Jim Skin-

~Skinner churned his way to a narrow
victory over John Sharemet of last
year's Michigan team in the 50-yard
breaststroke in 28.3 seconds to tie a
recently-established world mark. In
a thrilling finish Sharemet was only
inches behind. This was also iinoffi-
Patten Wins Freestyle
The Gala started out with a bang,
the first race bringing a photo fin-
ish between J. Tobias of University
High School and H. Jackson and H'.
Skinner of the freshman squad. To-
bias finally got the judges' nod in
this 50-yard freestyle event.
The 150-yard freestyle went to
Dick Trytten of University High, who
swam the distance in 1 :35.3. How-
ever, most of the glory in this race
was draped on the shoulders of Cap-
tain Jack Patten, national 220-yard
freestyle champion, who foamed
through the water in the sparkling
time of 1 :24.8.
PEM boys gave an exhibition of
their class work, showing how to
swim in burning oil, to perform the
various strokes, to carry a rifle, and

Winner of the final heat of the 50-
yard freestyle was Bob Tyler, fresh-
man, who led teammate Bob Hall in
26.2 seconds. ..
Comedy reared its head in the div-
ing events, interspersed between some
Haughey, freshman Gil Evans and
Marve Holter. The clowns, B. Holmes
and M. Hayes, clad in long underwear
and pajamas, treated the crowd to
such thrillers as the "Coca-Cola" dive
and the "Half Jack-Knife." Another
feature was the appearance of a
Michigan star of 1957, tiny Peter
Fries, wha dived off both high and
low boards with the utmost poise.
Relay Ends Program
A fitting climax was the 200-yard
freestyle relay, which saw the Varsity
team of Holiday, Chuck Fries, Kivi,

In preparation for a tentatively-
Y.CA. lThursday, Michigan Var-
sity wrestlers will take on the fresh-
man grapplers at 3 p.m. today in the
yost Field House.
This afternoon's meet will be the
first test for the matmen outside of
the intra-squad matches and may
go a long way in deciding who will
represent the Wolverines in the dif-
ferent weight classifications.
Bob McDonald and Larry Loftus,
the squad's most outstanding sopho-
mores, will probably be in the 121-
and 128-pound classes, respectively,
although normally both are 121-
pounders. While their freshman op-
ponents have not been officially
named, it seems likely that McDon-
ald will face Lloyd Jewell, and Loftus
will take on Bob Reichert.
Manly Johnson, at 145 pounds, a
star of last year's Varsity, wil be
other one of last season's topnotches
i n h niied cas bease oh
scarcity of heavyweight grapplers
among the first-year men.
Other probable pairings include
Harold Rudel and freshman Bob
Roosma, at 140 pounds; George Mic-
Intyre and freshman Hugh Wilson at
155, and Stan Clamage and fresh-
man Bob Worrell at 165. Tom Muhel.
ler, Varsity 175-pounder, will prob-
ably face Hugh Mack, while ?ete
Speek is likely to represent the up-
perclassmen at 160 pounds.
