Maize and Blue
IOWA CITY, Iowa. ()- The Mich-
igan swimming team bettered two Na-
tional Intercollegiate tank records
and two Big Ten marks here tonight,
defeating Iowa, 62 to 22.
Two of the Wolverines' performan-
ces came in the opening event.
The medley relay team-Harry Hol-
iday, Pat Hayes and Capt. John Pat-
ten-toured the 300-yard course in
2:51.1, bettering the National and
Conference standards of 2:54.1.
Holiday, who swam the backstroke
leg on the relay team, topped the Na-
tional and Conference marks of 1:30.9
for the 150-yard backstroke course.
He also was credited with an unoffi-
cial record of :56.7 for the 100yard
distance he swam in the relay race,
All events of the meet were con-
tested over a 20-yard course.
Michigan took first place in all nine

Dark Future
NEW YORK, Feb. 13.- (P)- Col-
lege football isn't sure whether it can
even get to the post next fall, but
it's going right ahead with plans to
hold as reasonable a facsimile of
spring training as possible.
While disappointed and somewhat
surprised over the Army's rule forbid-
ding its soldier-students to partici-
pate in intercollegiate athletics, a sur-
vey by the Associated Press today
showed most major American col-
leges intend to play football as long
as they can put eleven men on a side
and get a man to blow a whistle.
The squads will be much smaller
and many of them will be composed
largely of 17-year-old boys, but it is
with these recent high school grad-
uates and men who do not come un-
der the Army ban that the colleges
are planning to operate on at least a
limited basis this fall.
A list of the major colleges that
said today they had either started
spring training or would within a few
weeks included Ohio State, Indiana,
Purdue, Notre Dame, Northwestern,
Iowa, Minnesota, and Michigan.
Wisconsin Wins 'Little
Big Ten' Track Meet
CHICAGO, Feb. 13.-(P)- Wiscon-
sin won the "Little Big Ten" track
meet tonight over four other Western
Conference Schools, sweeping five of
12 first places in running up 54 points.
Northwestern was second with 231/2,
Purdue third with 22, Chicago fourth
with 201/2 and Minnesota last with 12.
The Wildcats came along with a
rush to nose out the Boilermakers
when Dave James won first in the
broad jump, second in the high jump
and second in the 60-yard low hur-
dles for Northwestern.
Wisconsin won firsts and seconds
in the 60-yard dash and pole vault,
first in the 60-yard high hurdles to
build up an early edge of 11 points
over its nearest competitor.

Hockey Team
Loses, 7-2, to
Paris Puchsters
In a hockey game that was close
for two periods and then became a
walk-away, the Michigan sextet= lost
a 7-2 game to a team from the Paris
The Parisiennes scored three goals
to one for the Wolverines in the ini-
tial stanza to take a lead that was
never menaced. In the second period,
the home team held the Canadian
club scoreless while pushing the puck
past "Jyp" England for its second and
last tally of the evening.
The victors ran up four markers in
the third period, seemingly scoring at
will over the tired Wolverine players.
Ken Edmison scored his second and
third goals of the evening within the
space of a minute, to complete his
"hat trick" for the visitors. He also
got an assist. Second honors in the
scoring department must go to Toni
Torti for his goal and three assists.
For two periods the Wolverines
played a brand of hockey that kept
the meager gathering of fans on the
edge of their seats and as the third
period opened, the team was only one
goal behind. But then the experience
of the visitors began to count as they
went wild in the final frame.
The team was definitely not the
same that played for the Maize and
Blue for the first half of the season.
The loss of the entire front line made
the Michigan offense so weak that it
never was a serious threat.
Bill Dance led in the scoring de-
partment for the losers, garnering a
goal and an assist for his evening's
However, the Michigan defensemen
must be given the nod as the stars
of the evening for the Wolverines.
Bob Derleth made as many forays
down the ice as any man on either
line for Michigan and played a fine
defensive game for the entire sixty
minutes. Bob Stenberg, as a result of
his sparkling body checking and
stickwork downr behind the Michigan
blue line, must be termed as the most
improved player on the squad.
It was just lack of experience that
hindered the two new men who played
on the second Wolverine line, Chuck
Berthoud and Bob Mull:Jan.

Michigan's wrestling team defeated
Northwestern today, 18 to 16, in a
Western Conference dual meet, al-
though the Wildcats won four of the
six bouts.
Michigan gained its advantage by
redeiving forfeit victories in the 136
and 145 pound divisions. Northwest-
ern did not compete at those weights
because of injuries.
Bob Allen at 165 pounds and Dick
Kopel at 128 pounds were the match
winners for Michigan. Allen threw
Dick Harzah of Northwestern in 38
seconds-fastest contest of the day,
while Kopel won a decision over Art
Nethercott, one of Northwestern's
best men, 6 to 2.
Northwestern took two bouts by
falls and two by decisions. Charles
Weber of Northwestern pinned Mich-
igan's Max Luchart at 121 pounds and
Bill Ivy, Wildcat heavyweight,-threw
Johnny Greene of Michigan in over-
time, after the regulation time had
resulted in a 3 to 3 draw.

for its third dual meet victory of the
The Spartans scored two falls.
Merle Jennings pinned Robert Bates
of Ohio at 128 pounds and Iggy Kon-
rod threw Dave Jones at 136 points.
Burl Jennings, Merle's twin brother,
moved up to the 145-pound division

with that which the Wolverines
amassed against the Buckeyes three
weeks ago. This adds to the current
evidence of the evenness of the two
Michigan teams. The Spartans won
the first match between the State ri-
vals, 14-12, while the Maize and Blue
matmen squeezed out a 16-14 decision
last week.
