Northwestern in 53-41
Mandler Is H igh Scorer for Wolverines
As Michigan Wins Final Cage Contest
Three Conference Meets This Week
By HARVEY FRANK
That intangible something called
Michigan spirit was plainly in evi-
dence last night as an inspired Wol-
verine basketball team ran rough-
shod over the Northwestern quintet,
53-41, in Yost Field House.
The beaten Wildcats, still licking
their wounds after a terrific 86-44
pasting at the hands of the Illini in
a game that set a new Conference
scoring record, which was bettered
last night, appeared bewildered and
The upset victory, which closed the
current Conference season, gave
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's quintet a'
Big Ten record of four wins and eight
Although the Wildcats' Otto Gra-
ham was high scorer for the evening
with 19 points, it was the play of
Michigan's three seniors that stole
Captain Jim Mandler, Leo Doyle,
and Mel Comin, playing in their last
college game, led the Wolverine at-

offensive power. Mandler poured 16
points through the hoop before being

ond half to- lead the Wolverine scor-
Michigan took the lead at the start
on a basket by Doyle and were never
headed thereafter. Every one of the
seven players took part in the scor-
ing as the Wolverines rolled up their
second highest score in Big Ten com-
petition this year.
The game was especially rough,
with 34 fouls being called, 21 of them
against Michigan. Besides Mandler,

Meet May Be Close
Fans may expect Michigan to tri-
umph at Chicago by a big margin
because of the team's easy triumph
over Ohio State. However, with indi-
vidual stars from Illinois, Minnesota,
Purdue and other Big Ten schools
picked to cop some of the first places,
Michigan's margin of victory will not
be much greater than 10 points. Last
year Ohio State won the indoor
crown with a margin of nine points,

Michigan Looms as
By BUD1 LOW
Michigan hasn't won a Conference
wrestling championship since former
mat Coach Cliff Keen's boys did it
bac in 1938, but this week-end the
team is going to try to turn the tables
in the meet at Chicago.
This year, under the able tutelage
of Ray Courtright, the grapplers have
won three matches and lost one in
Big Ten competition. The only loss,
a 25 to 3 drubbing at the hands of a
fighting Illini squad, indicated just
who the Wolverines will have to
Last year the Varsity finished in a
tie for second with Illinois, when
Purdue won Conference titles in four
weight divisions to amass 33 points.
This season it probably will be a dif-
ferent story with the Orange and
Blue fighting "it out for first place
with Michigan, and the loser battling
the Boilermakers for runnerup hon-
Kopel Wins in Practice,
Yesterday, in preparation for this
week-end, "Corky" had several of his
proteges wrestle one another in prac-
tice matches. Little Dick Kopel, the
cream of the Conference in the 121-
pound division, decisioned Chip War-
rick, 11 to 7. Warrick has lost over
20 pounds the last few. .months in
order to come down to the 128-pound
class and, despite the fact that he is
still a little weak, from the ordeal,
looked mighty good to us against Ko-
Bob Allen and Tom Mueller grunt-
ed and groaned for nine minutes in
an effort to determine' who will meet
Hugh Mack today. Allen was pressed
hard, but his early advantage was too
much for Mueller to overcome, and
the former won by a score of 7 to 2.
Speek, Troweli NMatched Today
Also slated for today is a match be-
tween Pete Speek and'Burt Trowell,
both 155-pounders. Pete has been
wrestling regularly in this division
but Trowell has comealong fast and
should put up a good fight.
Johnny Greene really, got a work-
out when he was matched 'with Bill
Courtright, who formerly was cap-
tain of the team until the Army de-
cided he would do better against the
Axis. Bill expects to be called within
the next week (now that his knee has
almost entirely mended from a recent
operation) and probably .will accom-
pany the team to Chicago to give
them his moral support.

The Conference swimming meet,1
perennially a two-team affair be-
tween Michigan and Ohio State, will
take on even more of the aspect of a
private Buck-Wolverine duel than
usual this Friday and Saturday at
Evanston. For the dual meet season
has proven that the aquatic talent of
the Big Ten definitely does not reside
at Purdue, Indiana, Chicago, Wiscon-
sin, or the four other Conference
It happens that Michigan and Ohio
have this year not only the cream
of Conference swimmers but the pick
of the mermen throughout the na-
tion. That is why the winner of this
week's contest is already being her-
alded as the probable victor at the
National Collegiates on March 25-26.
By virtue of their two dual victories
over the Buckeyes, Coach Matt
Mann's Wolverines should reign, as
the favorites in Evanston. However,
the Collegiates are still a long way
Comparison of Teams' Records
A resume of the happenings during
the current dual season will serve to
illustrate the comparative strength of
the Bucks and Wolverines as against
the rest of the field.
Michigan has beaten Ohio twice,
once fairly easily and recently by the
slim margin of three points. In its
other Big Ten contest the Maize and
Blue trounced Iowa 63-21. Iowa, in
turn, thrashed Wisconsin and North-
western nearly as- soundly. Minne-
sota proved itself a shade better than
the Wildcats and quite a bit superior
to the. Badgers. The Purple, to com-
plicate 'the picture, beat Illinois,
which gained a victory over Purdue
by the narrowest of margins-two
points. Purdue has handed out de-
feats to "the two remaining squads:
Indiana and Chicago.
Michigan; Ohio Head List
There, then, is the story-Michigan
seems to stand at the head of the
list, closely followed by Ohio State.
Iowa, though far below the strength
of 'the leaders, is still a pretty fair
distance ahead of the rest of the
teams, on the basis of comparative
scores. All this goes to show how far
above the bulk of the Conference are
the two contenders for the champion-
From the information available
only one swimmer has been found

The DASCOLA BARBERS
Between State and Mich. Theatres
By WALT KLEE
If the kind of hockey that was
played in the, two games in_ Chamt-
paign is any indication of the brand
to be played here on Thursday and
Saturday between the Illinois and
Michigan sextets, the fans may ex-
pect to see the roughest hockey seen
in Ann Arbor in many seasons.
After ten minutes of the first game,
the two teams began to throw the
most vicious body checks that have
been seen in the Conference..this sea
son. It all started when Arno Bes-
sone knocked little Johnny Athens
into the boards so hard that the
mighty mite was slightly dazed.
Then Michigan's. Bob Stenberg and
Bob Derleth began to get into the
spirit of things themselves, and the
two teams began to see who could
check the hardest.
Spirits ran high and twice the two
teams broke out into fist fights. The
first time nobody seemed to be guilty
of starting the melee and no penalties
resulted; but the second time Glenn
Rolle and Bob Stenberg seemed tobe
the culprits and were sent to the
box for five minutes.
-Michigan's goalie and captain,
Henry Loud, was the star of the ser-
ies, mnaking a total of 110 saves while
permitting ten shots to slip past him
into the nets. Sensational is the
only adjective that can aptly describe
the play of Loud in the nets. Many
of 'his saves were made after Illinois
forwards had fired shots back at him
after~ receiving the rebounds.
The hIlinois team was just too fast,
and too experienced. ' Bessone,
George Balestri, Henry Coupe, and
Bucky Benson all have knocked
arounid some of the better "amateur."
circuits for years before entering col-
lege to play hockey for Vic Heyliger.
Coupe, according to Hank Loud, is
"the fastest and sweetest hockey
player we have faced all year." The
sophomore center on. the Ill~lni scored
a "hat trick" on Thursday.

ing freshmen, who are eligible, are
