Wolverines Shade Spartans For Fifth Straight Win,
Ill Luck Dogs
When it comes to tough luck, it's
beginning to look as if Michigan's
1943 wrestling team has a corner on
First Old Dame Fortune deprived
the Wolverine matmen of three of
their mainstays, Captain Bill Court-
right, Al Wistert, and Tom Coffield.
To top this, the mat squad is having
trouble trying to get a permanent
schedule. It now appears that they
will meet the Detroit YMCA next
Monday, but they have already had
three other dates with the Detroit
club postponed. Previously the Varsity
had carded the Grosse Ile Naval Air
base, but they were forced to cancel
this meet finally, after several post-
ponements, when the Navy School re-
ported it was unable to get adequate
equipment for a team.
ALBION WHIPS DETROIT TECH
DETROI', Jan. 4. -(AM)- Albion's
Methodists broke into the win column
in their fourth start of the basketball
season today, defeating Detroit Tech,
36 to 34. It was Tech's second setback
in seven starts.
Frank Vandenberg's field goal with
barely a minute to play put the
Methodists ahead to stay, 35 to 34.
Cinder Men Make Indoor Debut
in Triangular 'Meet Next Month
By ERIC ZALENSKI
Indoor track will make its initial
1943 appearance next month at Yost
Field House when Michigan's Varsity
thinclads take on Michigan State and
Michigan Normal in a triangular
Although the meet has been tenta-
tively scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 9,
the date may be shifted. Coach Ken
Doherty's squad is picked to repeat
last season's easy triumph over these
two state foes.
State Innovates Relay Meet
An innovation in 'Midwest track
programs, the Michigan State Relays
will provide the first big test for the
Wolverine crew Feb. 13 at East Lan-
sing. Notre Dame has already sent
in its entry and Marquette and Michi-
gan are expected to follow suit soon.
Chicago, Northwestern and Illinois
have been invited along with many
of Michigan's smaller colleges.
The State Relays were announced
after it was learned that the Army's
use of the huge armory had forced
Illinois to cancel its annual Relay
Regardless of what the Maize and
Blue cindermen do in the first two
meets they'll be under pressure when,
I the championship Buckeyes invade
the Field House for a track duel Fri-
day, Feb. 26. The date may be shifted
to Feb. 27.
Ohio State took the crown away
from Michigan in the indoor Confer-
ence meet last year, and the results
of this dual meet will be an indication
of Michigan's chances for regaining
Conference Meet Climaxes Season
The indoor season will hit its peak
at Chicago when the cream of the
Big Ten's athletes gather for the an-
nual Conference battle March 5-6.
The Buckeyes will place their hopes
for continued Conference dominance
on a veteran squad led by the crack
hurdler, Bob Wright.
With only nine lettermen back this
season, Coach Doherty has the small-
est squad in many years to work with.
The loss of Frank McCarthy, a hurd-
ler, running broad jumper and high
jumper, and Gene Hirsch, shot put-
ter, will also be felt, especially in the
Conference meet when place-points
Michigan can count heavily on
Captain Dave Matthews, crack half
miler, and Bob Ufer, national indoor
quarter-mile titilist, for first place
points in all four meets. The squad
as a whole is good, an improvement
over last year, with balance on the
track, and a weakness in the field

Meeting to End
CHICAGO, Jan. 4.- (P)- The
"wait and see" policy of the major'
leagues with respect to the ODT's
suggestions for curtailment of war-
time travel in 1943 ends tomorrow.
The 16 club owners of the Ameri-
can and National Leagues will meet
in a special emergency joint session
with KeneSaw Mountain Landis, com-
missioner of baseball, to hear him tell
what will be expected of them in sav-
ing train mileage:
The session is the most important
to organized baseball since 1921, when
Landis quit the federal bench to re-
store public confidence in the sport
after the crooked World Series of
The emergency meeting was called
by Landis following his conference in
Washington last Wednesday with -Jo-
seph B. Eastman, director of 'the Of-
fice of Defense Transportation.
The major objective of the meeting
will be unified action on curtailment
of travel miles, perhaps a later open-
ing of th.se eason and possibly short-
ening of the schedule, and smaller
squads on short trips during the sea-
Landis has made no announcement
of his plan but some of the points al-
most certain to be acted upon are:
1. 'Revision of the championship
season schedule to include a cut from
a standard of 154 games to 140 and a
later opening date. Most of the club
owners probably will hold out for the
154 game schedule but possibly will
agree to opening the season April 27
instead of April 13, which would be
two weeks later.
2. A drastic slash in the number of
players to be taken on trips without
disturbing the 25-player limit. Pos-
sibly no more than 20 players would
be taken on trips and those not ab-
solutely needed would be left at home.
3. A unified effort by all 16 clubs
to train closer to home cities and
abandonment of all side exhibition
4. Possible revision of the schedule
to include two East-West trips rather
than the three which are now in the
schedule. Since 1936 the teams- have
been making four East-West trips.
Wolverines Hold Lead Throughout
in Slow-MovingDefensive Battle
Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING, Jan. 4.- Michi-
gan's unbeaten cagers stuck to their
winning habits by turning back Mich-
igan State, 29-26, before 6,100 at Jen-
ison Field House tonight.
It was the Wolverines' second win
this season over the luckless Spartans
and their fifth consecutive triumph
of the year. The initial fracas had
been all State right up to an exciting
finish when 'the 'Wolverines had to
come from behind to knot the score
and finally win' in overtime, 36-31.
Tonight, however, the Maize and Blue
warriors were in no mood to risk their
spotless record. They jumped into the
lead at the outset and retained it
throughout the slow moving contest.
Wolverines Capitalize on Fouls
Each team connected for 10 field
goals but the difference in the score
was made up at the foul line where
the Wolverines outscored their State
rivals, 9 to 6. The shooting was sloppy
all' through: the game 'ith " the Spar-
tans throwing 48 shots at the basket
and the Wolverine peppering away
with 40, each making good on only
The first half was pretty much
Michigan as the victors hit the strings
enough to walk off at halftime with
a 15-6 advantage. However, the par-
tisan crowd finally got its thrills
shortly after the start of the second
half when the Spartans narrowed the
gap to 18-16. Ollie White, State for.-
ward who paced both teams with 12
tallies, led the Spartan surge with
seven of his total.
Game Gets Even Slower
At this point the game slowed from
a walk to a mere crawl. Michigan held
on doggedly and with only five min-

utes remaining, led by 23-20. Each
team converted a foul point and then
big Fred Stone of the Spartans added
another charity throw to chop the
Michigan margin to a single point.
Mel Comin and Leo Doyle, person-
ally taking things into hand, hit the
cords for five straight points to give
the Wolverines a lead that was just
a little more than the Spartans could
overcome. Several desperate long
shots by the State lads failed to clear
the hoop and the hectic contest
wound up in the Michigan bag, all
