Matmen Battle
For Wrestling
Championships
By BUD LOW
Coach Ray Courtright and eight
matmen leave today for Evanston
where the Western Conference
wrestling championships will begin
tomorrow morning in Patten gymna-
sium and continue through Saturday.
It was announced last night that
heavyweight Johnny Greene would
wrestle in the 175-pound class in or-
der to strengthen the team's chances
to dethrone Purdue, the defending
champions.
Mack Moves Down
Moving Greene down one division
forced Courtright to enter Hugh
Mack in the 165-pound bracket.
Pete Speek. 155-pounder, suffered
an injury to his shoulder in practice
yesterday and may not be able to
compete. If this be the case, then
Allen will have to take off a few
pounds and wrestle at 155.
Captain Manley Johnson, 145
pounds of dynamite, is all alone in
his class and should successfully de-
fend his crowd without much diffi-
culty.
New Men Entered
This meet will mark' the debut of
two new men, Mort Kline and Chip
Warrick, who have worked hard for
the chance they deserve. Kline will
wrestle at 136, and what he lacks in
experience, he makes up in determi-
nation and courage.
Warrick takes the honors for just
plain hard work. A little weak from
losing over thirty pounds since the
beginning of the season, Chip should,
nevertheless, provide plenty of trouble
for the opposition in the 128-pound
slot.
..Last on the list, but first in wrestl-
ing ability and confidence, is Dick
Kopel. Put your money on him to
win the 121-pound crown,

Pucksters Face Illinois
In Local Battle Tonight

By WALT KLEE
Tonight's Michigan-Illinois hockey
game probably won't be the most
evenly matched contest, but it will
be the roughest, most interesting
game seen on local ice this season.
The tilt probably will develop into
the continuation of the private battle
between Michigan's Bob Derleth and
Bob Stenberg, and Illinois' George
Balestri and Amo Bessone. The
Michigan defense is anxious to show
the home fans that they can check
just as hard and as effectively as can
the Illini's captain and partner.
Last week Stenberg and Glenn
Rolle, Illini wing, started a feud to
see who could knock the other down
the hardest; things coming to a cli-
max when the two men started to
fight in the middle of the ice. This
grudge, along with the one between
Derleth and Bessone, almost assures
another general melee on the ice,
either tonight or Saturday, when the
two teams close the season.
Wolverines Prepared
All week the two Wolverines have
been getting ready to renew their
private fights with the Illini and
have promised to give out more than
they take. The fiery Stenberg even
hopes for the outbreak of fisticuffs so
that he can get back at the Illini that
tapped him on the back with a stick
during the fight last Saturday.
Coach Ed Lowrey has been having
the team practice getting the puck
out of Michigan ice after a face-off
near the Michigan nets. He hopes
that this practice will avert several
Illinois scores. Over half of .the op-
ponents' scores this season have tak-
en place after a face-off, when an
opposing forWard has been able to
send the puck flying past Hank Loud
before any defense has been formed.
The Michigan first.line, Bill Dance,
Roy Bradley, and Gordon Anderson,
has been held to three goals in the

last three games. It scored three
times here against Minnesota; but
could not dent Karakas for a goal in
either game last week.
Michigan, while it has not yet
scored a single goal on the road, has
yet to be held scoreless on home ice.
It has an average of slightly more
than two goals a game for the games
played at the Coliseum.
The pucksters are relying on a fast
break-away to be their main scoring
punch. After a face-off Dance hopes
to pass the puck to Derleth or Sten-
berg who will fire the puck to Brad-
ley or Anderson as they are skating
down ice before the Illinois defense-
men can get down to be of help to
goalie Tom Karakas.
Defense Rugged
The Michigan defense has proven
that it can take care of the fleet
Henry Coupe, Glenn Rolle, and
Bucky Benson as they bring the puck
down into Wolverine territory.
Hank Loud, bydmaking 110 stops
over last week-end, has proven that
he can hold up his end of the re-
sponsibility. If the Michigan defense
can get the puck out from in front
of Loud after he has blocked a shot,
the home team may hold the Illini
down to where a goal or two may
mean victory for the home team.
ATTENTION!
Freshman basketball numeral
winners who are not joining some
other athletic squad, are required
to sign up for a PEM class by next
Monday. These men are asked to
report to the Field House equip-
ment room to be measured for
numeral sweaters.

Mermen Rated
Over OSU in
Chicago Battle
In search of its fifth straight Big
Ten crown, Michigan's swimming
team, 11 men strong, will leave by
automobile at 10 a.m. today for Chi-
cago and the Conference meet tomor-
row and Saturday.
From all indications the battle for
the title will narrow down to a fight
between the Wolverines and the
Buckeyes of Ohio State, and ever,
optimistic Matt Mann is already pre-
dicting a victory for the Maize and
Blue.
There will be a private duel be-
tween a Wolverine and a Buckeye,
too. It'll be in the 220-yard free-
style, where Michigan's Captain
Johnny Patten and Ohio State's Keo
Nakama are expected to battle it out
for top honors. The race will be the
third and deciding match between
the two, each having defeated the
other in a dual meet.
In the first meet between the
schools, which took place in Michi-
gan's pool, Patten upset Nakama,
winning by two strokes and timed in
2:10.6, three full seconds better than
the Big Ten record. But in the clash
at Ohio the tables were turned. The
Hawaiian touched out Patten to even
their personal score.
His time in this race was 2:12.7,
also faster than the Big'Ten record,
but over two seconds slower than the
Michigan captain's time in the first
meet.
The Wolverines making the trip to
the Windy City are Captain Patten,
Alex Canja, Lou Haughey, Harry
Holiday, Irv Einbinder, Jim Skinner,
Chuck Fries, John McCarthy, Walt
Stewart, Mert Church, and Ace Cory.

1943 Track Title?
When Prof. Phil Diamond hesi-
tates to draw up a dope sheet on
this year's Big Ten indoor track and
field meet at Chicago tomorrow and
Saturday you can be quite certain
that any prediction will be a wild
guess at the most.
Draft, call of the armed forces,
and uncertain injuries to key per-
formers notwithstanding, we're go-
ing to pick Michigan to edge out
Wisconsin with Illinois battling the
defending champion Ohio State
squad for third place.
Let's discount what the boys might
do at Chicago. Let's forget that up-
sets can and will occur. Let's sup-1
pose that all squads are intact andj
at full strength. Let's base our pre-
dictions on actual times and dis-
tances turned in this season by the
athletes competing. Here is our pre-
diction on that factual and rather
impractical basis.

Yes, we know, you disagree with us
most violently. Perhaps, you feel the
margin should be bigger. Maybe it
will. But the big point is that the
fight will be between these four
teams-Michigan, Ohio State, Wis-
consin and Illinois-with the Buck-
eyes a possible fourth-place winner.
We have assembled the best times
and distances turned in by Big Ten
performers up to date this season

ANDY PHILLIP
Four Illini Men
Make Big Ten
All-Star Quintet
CHICAGO, March 3.- (P)- Pay-
ing high tribute to Illinois' well-bal-
anced basketball team, Conference
coaches, who annually select the
Associated Press All-Star Quintet,
today broke Big Ten precedent and
swept four of the "Whiz Kids" onto
the honor roll.
Only unanimous choice was Andy
Phillip, who averaged 21.2 points a
game to rip apart Conference scor-
ing records while helping power the
Illini to their second successive
championship.
Averaging 63 points in their 12
games and becoming the first unde-
feated title winner in 13 years, Illi-
nois also was represented by center
Art Mathisen and guards Jack Smi-
ley and .Gene Vance.
Menke Handicapped
The fifth member of this brilliant
unit, forward Ken Menke, was handi-
capped half the season with an in-
jured foot, and although making a
great showing by scoring 43 points
in his last two contests, was dropped
to the honorable mention list in the
balloting.
Northwestern's Otto Graham, who
has averaged 16 points through 11
games, joined Phillip at forward on
the first lineup, making it bristle
with scoring possibilities.
Phillip Only Repeater
. Handy Andy, who was elected cap-
tain of next season's team by his
mates today and also was chosen the
team's most valuable player for the
second straight year, was the only
repeater from the 1942 All Stars. The
versatile cager, regarded as one of
the best ever to be turned out in the
midwest, was credited with another
rarity-that of being chosen All-Con-
ference guard last year and All-Con-
ference forward this time.

RED WINGS HOLD LEAD

COOKING. Plan more oven meals in your electric
range. Preparing a complete meal in the oven at
one time is economical: The same amount of elec-
tricity cooks meat, potatoes, vegetables and a pud-
ding. . . * Use LOW heat to finish most of your
surface cooking, after foods have reached the steam-
ing point. When the cooking operation is almost
completed, the heat may be turned completely OFF.
Stored heat in the unit finishes the cooking opera.
tion. * * * Don't waste electricity heating up a large
quantity of water when cooking vegetables: Half-
a-cup of water is ample.
LIGHTING. Dust steals light and wastes electricity.
Wipe all lamp bulbs frequently, also reflector bowls
and ceiling fixtures. Use the right size lamp in the
right socket. Dark colored lamp shades soak up
light. Use light-colored shades wherever possible,
or try fitting dark shades with a white lining.
APPLIANCES. Don't leave appliances turned on
when temporarily not in use (your electric iron or
toaster, for example). Pull the plug, and connect
the appliance again later when you are ready to use
it. Defrost your refrigerator regularly. Don't over-
crowd your refrigerator. Unless the motor is hermet-
ically sealed, have it oiled and inspected regularly.
Be sure to locate your refrigerator away from heat
sources, and allow adequate air circulation all around
the refrigerator. The Detroit Edison Company.
