In 6-4 Win over Point Edward


Wolverines Favored
To Defeat Spartans
Here Tomorrow Night
Michigan's surprising matmen were I
the "fair-haired" boys of the Big Ten
after Saturday night's sensational 14-
12 victory over a favored Indiana
grappling crew at Yost Field House.
The triumph over a Hoosier mat
squad, rated as the most powerful in
the Conference, sends Coach Ray
Courtright's Maize and Blue charges
Into tomorrow night's battle against
Michigan State here as favorites. The
match opens at 7:30 p.m. in the Field
In an earlier match the Spartans
squeezed out a 19-14 triumph over a
Michigan team that was minus Cap-
Uain Manly Johnson who stayed home
with a cold.
Johnson Faces Maxwell
Featured match will find Johnson
matching wits with the Spartans' 1942
national titleholder, Bill Maxwell, at
145 pounds. There will be many eyes
on the State's Jennings twins, Bo and
tut, also last year's national cham-
pions, who will wrestle at 136 and 128
pounds. Johnson, Big Ten champion
at 145 pounds, lost to Maxwell in the
nationals last year.
Coach Courtright expects to make
several changes in his lineup, includ-
kng Pete Speek at 155 pounds instead
All candidates for battery posi-
tions on the varsity baseball team
should report at Yost Field House
by the middle of this week.
Bill Kopeke,
Senior Manager
of George McIntyre, and a substitute
for the ailing Bob Allen at 165 pounds.
The Maize and Blue grapplers split
eight matches with the invading Roo-
sier "cavemen," earning the team vic-
tory on the strength of Dick Kopel's
pin of Archer in the 128-pound class.
Although a 121-pounder, Kopel had
little difficulty pinning his man in
The opening match saw Larry Lof-
tus, a sophomore with lots of promise,
easily decision Indiana's Angelopou-
los, 5-0. The invaders gained their
first victory at 136 pounds when Rob-
bins whipped the game Hal Rudel,
8-1, with a display of clever mat tech-
McIntyre Wins at 145
George McIntyre was too good for
Indiana's 145-pounder, Norman, and
won a 6-3 decision. Another Hoosier,
Galonka, had little trouble with Mich-
igan's Allen, winning the 165-pound
contest with a 7-2 score.
In the best match of the evening,
Captain Johnson was in rare form as
he decisioned the powerful Wilkensen,
10-7. Johnson piled up points with
repeated take-downs over his bewil-
dered Hoosier foe.
Harry Traster, second-place winner
in the 1942 Big Ten campaign, easily
defeated the Wolverines' Tom Mueller
at 175 pounds, 6-0, and Bochneicka
added another Hoosier triumph by
decisioning Johnny Greene, 4-0, in
the unlimited division.

Bob. Opland's third period "hat
trick" in last Saturday night's hockey
game brought the Wolverines their
first victory in six starts over a
fighting Point Edward team. The
three Michigan goals in the final pe-
riod, to one for the Canadians, made
the score 6-4 in favor of the home
Only a handful of spectators
watched the sophomore flash, Op-
land, score his three goals and Bob
Kemp score two goals and two assists
in his swan song for the Maize and
Michigan Takes Lead
The game featured plenty of fast
skating and offensive tactics that
kept the meager gathering on the
edge of their seats from the word
go. After Logie Allen had pushed the
puck past Hank Loud for the first of
his three goals for the evening, the
Wolverines went into the lead on two
markers by Kemp and Bob Derleth.
Spartans To
To morrow
Billed as the last home swimming
meet of the season, the thrill-packed
Michigan-Ohio State affair has called
forth an encore for Coach Matt
Mann's marvelous mermen. Arrange-
ments were finally made for a meet-
ing between the Wolverines and the
Spartans of Michigan State here to-
morrow night.
State, never a power in the aquatic
world, had most of its hopes for this
year vanish before the season even
started. The armed services pls an
elbow injury have swept seven of
Coach Charles McCaffree's brightest
prospects right out of the beautiful
pool in Jennison Field House.
So, in their lone contest of the year
the Spartans were completely
swamped by a Buckeye squad still wet
from the splashing administered in
Ann Arbor by the Mattmen. The score
was 62-19, only a victory by Jack
Newton in the 50-yard freestyle sav-
ing the East Lansing boys from a total
Team Seeks Record
The Wolverines will not be swim-
ming half-heartedly, in spite of the
prospect of not too much competition.
In fact, Matt has announced that the
medley relay team will attempt to
smash the American record for the
standard 300-yard distance. In.the
Ohio meet the trio of HarryHoliday,
Pat Hayes and Ace Cory came just
two and a half seconds short of the
mark of 2:51.9 set by Princeton in
1939. Two more weeks ofcondtioning
and the insertion, of either Lou Kivi
or Chuck Fries into the freestyle slot
may very well turn the trick.-
Only five men are back from last
year's Spartan team. Newton and
Harold Hefferman are sprinters, Lar-
ry Luoto and Warren McNichol are
returning divers and Jim Thomas is
a veteran distance performer. The
best breaststroke performer in Michi-
gan State history, Chuck Bigelow,
shattered an elbow recently in a fall
so the burden in this event will fall
on sophomore Bob Knox. Backstroker
Harry Cooley is another good soph.

This lead was short lived as the Can-
adians came back to knot the count
just as the initial period came to a
The second period saw Kemp's sec-
ond goal and Allen's third.
Opland Begins To Move
After ten minutes of battling be-
tween the blue lines, the Canadians
took a one-goal lead on a ten-footer
by Ted Garvin. The Wolverines then
moved on the offensive and Opland,
on a pass from Roy Bradley, pushed
the puck past Rutter for the first
of three, and the score was again
knotted. The Canadians then put
five forwards on the ice to try to
score, but the strategy backfired as
Opland skated all alone up the ice,
past in front of the nets to draw Rut-
ter off balance and fired the puck
into the nets from five feet out.
The Point Edward strategy came
to grief again, as Kemp intercepted
a pass in front of Loud and passed
out to Opland who had scored again
before the Canadians could form a
defense. The game ended with the
Wolverines staving off the final ef-
forts of the visitors deep down in
their own ice.

Triumph Is
Eighth in Row
For Hoosiers
(Continued from Page 1)

Johnny Logan and Ralph Hamilton
had shot Indiana into a 6 to 0 lead
in the first few minutes the Crimson
steadily pulled away to a 26 to 12
half-time lead.
At the start of the final period In-
diana kept up its bombardment of
the basket and was ahead, 44 to 22,
when Comin and Gibert sparked a
Michigan drive that cut the Hoosiers'
final margin to 15 points.

11 laps of the Garden track in 1:56.5,
