Loss of
New Puckinel
To See Action
In Paris Tilt
When the Michigan hockey team
takes the ice next Saturday in search
of its second victory of the year, at
the expense of a sextet from the Paris
A.C., there will Ie three new men in
uniform for the Maize and Blue.
The new faces tiwt the fans will
get their first chance of seeing in
action belong to two sophomores,
Dave Pontius and Charles "Chuck"
Berthoud, aid a Junior, Bob Mulli-
Mulligan, a wingman, is the only
one of the trio who has had any ex-
perience in organized hockey, having
played several games for Coach Low-
rey last year before becoming ineligi-
ble. After practicing for a week, he
has regained his very fast shot, and
after a few more weeks should im-
prove his skating and stickwork so as
to be a real asset to the team.
Pontius has been practicing with
the freshmen this past semester, and
although has not yet rounded into
form will probably develop into one
of the mainstays of the second line.
The third new man, Berthoud, who
earlier in the season was practicing at
both defense and on the line, will see
action this Saturday on the second
line. He also shows promise of devel-
oping into a fine hockey player; but
as in the case of the other two men
needs time before he will be able to
play a good game. All three are almost
assured of seeing plenty of action in
the Paris tilt on Saturday.

Cindermen Leave Tomorrow
For Michigan State Relays

Maize and Blue supremacy in the
two-mile relay is expected to continue
Saturday night at East Lansing when
the Wolverine cindermen battle nine
other teams in the Michigan State
The quartet of Bob Ufer, Captain
Dave Matthews, John Roxborough
and Ross Hume which blazed through
a 7:47 two-mile at the Millrose Games
last Saturday, should have little trou-
ble in taking first-place honors.
Mile Relay Strong
Another Wolverine quartet, the
one-mile relay team, clipped off a
3:23.6 performance in the dual meet
against Michigan State at Yost Field
House Tuesday night, and this time
fares well in comparison with Ohio
State's 3:25.9 at the Millrose meet
where the Buckeye runners took first
Coach Ken Doherty will enter a
sprint medley quartet of Jim Sears at
440 yards, Len Alkon at 220 yards,
Jack Martin or Bill Newcomb at 220
yards, and Art Upton at 880 yards.
Hurdle Team Entered
The Wolverines' distance medley
relay team will consist of Roxborough
running a half-mile, Chuck Pinney
taking the quarter-mile turn, John
Ingersoll for three-quarters, and Bob
Hume finishing up with a mile.
Liv Stroia, Bud Low, Bud Byerly
and Elmer Swanson are entered in
the 240-yard shuttle hurdle relay. The
Ohio State quartet appears to have
anedge in this event.
Coach Doherty is taking along a
four-man freshman medley relay

team to compete against other uni-
versity frosh quartets. The men se-
lected by Frosh Coach Chet Stack-
housesaresDon Sternisha, 440 yards;
Bob Nussbaumer, 220 yards; Dick
Hall, three-quarter mile; and Bob Ed-
monson, mile.
Three special individual events are
listed on the meet program, including
the Invitational 300-yard dash which

As Coach Revamps Team
Daily sports Editor1
Michigan's upset victory over thet
champion-laden Michigan State wres-'
tling squad Wednesday night at Yost
Field House cost the Wolverine grap-
plers the services of Larry Loftus,
128-pound division entry, -for the re-
mainder of the current season.
The blonde-haired grappler suf-
fered a double fracture of the left
wrist, and a slight brain concussion
in losing to Merle (Cut) Jennings,
Spartan national champion, on a pin
in 2:55. Loftus was moved up from
121 pounds.
Loftus Lands on Head
The injury occurred shortly after
the bout opened. Jennings had slipped
behind Loftus, pulled him off his feet,
and then slammed him down on the
mat. Loftus landed on his head with
his left hand caught underneath. Jen-
nings was fined one point for the foul
as he failed to touch his knee before
slamming Loftus-required by col-
legiate rules. Loftus was revived and
continued until pinned.
Coach Ray Courtright, having pre-
viously lost Bob MacDonald and Don
Yost to the armed services, will rely
on Max Luikart in the 121-pound
division, while Dick Kopel will move
back up to 128 pounds.
Courtright's ailing 165 - pounder,
Bob Allen, suffered no ill results in
losing to Burl Boring, and reported
his ear infection improved. His sore
throat will not keep him out of the
Wildcat match.
No Other Shifts
Outside of the two changes men-
tioned, Coach Courtright plans no
other shifts in his lineup. Chip War-
rick and Hugh Mack are contesting
Hal Rudel and Tom Mueller at 136
and 175 pounds, respectively, but no
changes have been indicated in these
Northwestern is slated to play host
to the Wolverine matmen at Evans-
ton, Ill., tomorrow afternoon at 2:30.
The squad will meet at the Michigan
Union, and leave by car at 12:45 p.m.
Courtright, and Captain Manley
Johnson who pinned State's Bill Max-
well, national champion last year, in
5:20, Will be in charge of the squad.

CHICAGO, Feb. 11.- (P)- Gov-

1943 Kentucky Derby elated Col. Matt
Winn today-and thousands of turf
fans throughout the nation beamed,
Joseph B. Eastman, director of the
Office of Defense Transportation, an-
nounced in Washington that plans by

Winn, the 81-year-old president of

Churchill Downs, Inc., was jubilant,
and reported that scores of the Derby
faithful were so pleased that they
had swamped him with telegrams of
Winn figures that thousands of
others, who regard the classic for
three-year-olds as the No. 1 racing
event of the year, were gratified by
the developments, and predicted the
Derby's "listening-in audience" would
be the greatest on record. The race
will be run on Saturday, May 1.

will find Ufer pitted against the
Buckeyes' Russ Owens and Notre
Dame's Gene Fehlig. Doherty has en-
tered Glas, Upton and Ralph Gibson
in the 600-yard dash, and Ross Hume
in the special 1,000-yard run.
Also listed on the Relays program
are the 75-yard low and high hurdles,
the 75-yard dash, the mile run, and
three field events-the pole vault,

Improved Cagers Meet
Boilermakers Monday

To most people Purdue University,
hailing from a state where basketball
champions are the rule rather than
the exception, will probably be rated
heavy favorites when they invade Ann
Arbor next Monday to tackle the Wol-
verine cagers. Yet such a rating is
undoubtedly a bit premature.
In the first place Purdue, tradition-
ally able basket-makers as well as
Boilermakers, have upset that tradi-
tion somewhat this season, salvaging
but three victories in seven Big Ten
contests. In a bad slump, they have
lost three of their last four encount-
ers; the latest to Northwestern by the
overwhelming score of 67-40.
Wolverines Improve
In the second place, the Wolverines,
a young team, have been improving
perceptibly with each contest. In their
first game with Indiana, who had pre-
viously s w e pt through fourteen
straight games without a defeat, they
set up a defense that had the Hoosiers
worried all the way and limited the
high scoring Indianians to only 32
points, the smallest total that a Mc-
Cracken-coached Indiana quintet has
ever scored.
And in the third place one of the
three Purdue triumphs was at the ex-
pense of Chicago, a team which has
proved to be everybody's "cousin,"
losing 36 consecutive Big Ten games
over a three-year period.
Purdue No Pushover
All this is not to imply that Coach
Ward Lambert's five is any pushover,
because it is not. On their roster they
have Al Menke, rangy center, fifth
highest scorer in the Big Ten with
86 points, and Ed Ehlers, slippery
guard, who is tenth in the league with

73 points. They have a fast breaking
attack that is apt to break out at any
moment in a wild flurrie of baskets.
But what, it does imply is that they
lack the consistency and team play
that have made them title contenders
for the last four or five years. They
defeated Michigan twice last season
by topheavy scores.
Michigan will go into Monday's
contest sporting the second best de-
fensive record in the Big Ten. They
have limited their opponents to 265
points in six games for an average of
44 points a game, which in this day
and age of high scoring is something
to talk about.
Jim Thorpe, All-American
From Carlisle, in Hospital
DETROIT, Feb. 11.- (A)- Jim
Thorpe, the fabulous Indian athlete,
was reported tonight at Henry Ford
Hospital to be somewhat improved
following a heart attack this morning
at the Ford Motor Company Rouge
Plant where for the last year he has
been employed as a plant guard. He
is 54.
Thorpe, Carlisle Institute All-
America football player of 1911 and
1912 and Olympic Games hero, has
lived in relative obscurity with his
four sons at suburban Romulus.
