Illinois Was Primed
Illinois surprised every Michigan
grappler, even Coach Ray Courtright,
with its unusual display of power in
last Monday night's match. That
25-3 score by which the Wolverines
lost is hardly indicative of what hap-
pened at Champaign for one and one-
half hours.
Even Courtright was amazed by
the show of power put on by the
Illini. "I gambled by switching
Johnny (Captain Manly Johnson)
up to 155 pounds," he declared,
and Lee was just too strong for
him. That 10-pound weight ad-
vanage was too much for Johnny
Several of the bouts were close,
Illinois winning on riding time (haV-
Jag control of your man for a specified
time). The heavyweight division bout
with Johnny Green and Alex Agase,
the Illini's All-American guard, was
one of them. Agase had his hands
full before he clinched the victory.
gan's only triumph came in the
128-pound class with little Dick
Kopel, weighing only 121 pounds,
Uolding the upper hand all the way
ainst Ed Bernardini. The 9-2
*ore tells the story quite thorough-
1W. Kopel's a hot choice for the
Conference crown in his class.
Through an oversight on the part
Of the scorer at thenMichigan-North-
western. wrestling match last Satur-'
ay night, the Varsity squad lost the
i 5-pound and heavyweight matches.
Both Hugih Mack- and Greene scored
take-downs which they were not given
credit for. And they lost because of
it. Mack was defeated, 4-3, while
Green was pinned in an overtime
period. Instead of winning, 18-16,
Michigan should have had a 24-8
should win two Conference titles
this year, and don't hand the Illini
that team title yet. Johnson at 145
pounds is unbeatable in Big Ten
and we predict a successful defense
of his 1942 crown. And Kopel is
definitely the best man in the Con-'
ferncet' 21pounds and probably
at 128 also. .
Since few of you know the scoring

system for the Conference wrestling
tournament, here's how it's done:
five points for a championship, three
for second, two for third, one for
fourth place and one point for every
fall during the meet March 5-6.
Michigan, with Cliff Keen at the
controls, took a tie for second with
Illinois behind the winning Purdue
squad. Besides Johnson's victory at
145, Jim Galles was second at 175
pounds, Bill Courtright was third at
165, and Ray Deane was second at
136 pounds. Purdue won four first
places and Illinois two while Michi-
gan and Wisconsin had to be con-
ent with one title apiece.
ODDS AND ENDS-They're all
raving about a sensational freshman
athlete at Illinois, Dyke Eddleman,
who seems to be a combination of Don
Hutson, Hank Luisetti and Les
Steers, Eddleman has cleared 6 feet
6 3-4 inches in the high jump. In
four years of -basketball he tallied
2,289 points, 969 in the 45 games of
his junior year. He was all-state -for
three years. As a gridder he won all-
state honors at halfback and was a
numeral-winner on the Illinois Fresh
eleven. Quite a boy, eh!
have to wait a long time before
you see another pro gridder like
Don Hutson. He set eight new ree-
ords last season. He was credited
with 74 passes for a gain of 1,211
yards and 17 touchdowns. Added to
his lifetime totals as a pro it gave
him 336 passes-caught for a gain of
5,515 years and 72.,touchdowns.

Matmen Split
Two Tilts onr
Week-End Trip
Michigan's wrestling squad re-
turned to Ann Arbor after their week-
end road trip with a .500 per cent
average, beating Northwestern 18-16
and bowing to Illinois by a 25 to 3
count. The grapplers' trip was not too!
much of a disappointment for the
Illini have the cream of the Confer-
ence and are definitely the team to
beat in the Big Ten championships
at Chicago March 5 and 6.
Although Dick Kopel was the only
Wolverine to win his match, the
others were extremely close and with
a little luck might have gone another
way. Not to take any credit away from
the Orange and Blue, they made
their own breaks, and several times
their craftiness trapped the Maize
and Blue wrestlers.
Kopel Undefeated
Kopel, who remains undefeated
after five matches, had little trouble
in disposing of Ed Bernardini in the
121-pound class. Max Luickhart, who
wrestled at 121' pounds against the
Wildcats, moved up one division but
was definitely outclassed.
One of the biggest heartbreaks of
the meet occurred in the 145-pound
match when Rolly Rayburnoff of
Illinois allowed Pete Speek to fall
into a well-planned trap. Captain
Manley Johnson suffered his first
defeat at the hands of Stanley Lee
when he spotted the latter ten pounds
in moving up to the 155-pound class.
Allen Loses
In the 165-pound match, both Bob
Allen and Illini John Smerdel twice
had pinning holds on one another but
neither could score a fall until
Smerdel pinned Allen with a half
The final two matches of the eve-
ning proved extremely close, and both
Hugh Mack and heavyweight Johnny
Green ' tried valliantly to pin their
Orange-and Blue opponents to bring
up the Wolverine total, but each lost
a close decision.
One thing that the Varsity can
count on between now and the Con-
ference meet is plenty of hard work
and conditioning. Coach Ray "Corky"
Courtright said, "Both' Illinois and
Indiana are going to be plenty tough,
but the Wolverines' chances look as
good as anybody's.",

Facing a rough and clever Gopher'

Michigan hopes for hitting the
scoring column are decidely on the
upswing today, however, as Bill Dance
has straightened out his eligibility
problems, and will be able to hold
down the center spot in the contest.
With Gordon Anderson and Roy
Bradley at the wings, the trio will be
called upon to take any offensive
stand that the team may make, as
the second string line is made up of
three players who have practiced
only a short time and are long on
enthusiasm and aggressiveness but
lack the necessary experience.
Bob Derleth and Bob Stenberg will
be depended on to spark the defense
throughout the entire contest al-
though Bill Pritula may be called
upon if either of these two sixty min-
ute stalwarts is pulled off the ice.
Game To Be Rough
The Minnesota fray will undoubt-
edly be marked by much roughness, if
the first two games played this year
against the Gophers are any indica-
tion of the type of game to be ex-
pected. In the first two contests on
their home ice the fast charging

The most dominant idea in the cur-
rent talk of the Michigan swimmers
is that the Ohio State campus is go-
ing to be terribly surprised after the
return Buck-Wolverine meet this
Saturday in Columbus, if its belief in
its team's invincibility is really, sin-
cere. For the Maize and Blue mermen
can't figure out how the Bucks can
possibly garner many more points
than they did here in Ann Arbor on
Jan. 23.

Military Olympics Being Planned

LONDON, Feb. 17.- (/)-Tentative
plans have been laid to hold Military
Olympic Gaines for picked athletes
from-the United Nations this sum-
imer if war conditions permit, it was
learned today.
Approval of the high military com-
manders will be needed before defi-
nite steps can be taken to hold the
largest international sports carnival
since the last Olympic Games in Ber-
lin in 1936.
Present discussion of the Military
Olympics visualizes soldiers of at
feast nine nations participating in ten
sports, stressing competition essential
for the physical conditioning of
fighting men.
Freshman football numeral win-
ners please report to the Ferry
Field Administration Building any
afternoon during the next five
days for an interview.
Wally Weber,
Freshman Coach

Athletics now are being developed
at American bases under the direc-
tion of Col. Theodore Arter.
Stars and Stripes, which is a unit
of the special service branch, is
championing the idea.
The proposal, under discussion by
Col. Arter, Gibson and camp athletic
directors, envisions competition
among soldiers of the United States,
Canada, Great '.Britain, Australia,
Norway, Holland, Poland, the Fight-
ing French and Czechoslovakia. Ev-
ents would include boxing, wrestling,
soccer, volleyball, basketball, football,
baseball, track, swimming, rifle and
pistol shooting.
All second-semester freshmen
and sophomores interested in be-
ing track managers are asked to
report after 4 pym. in Yost Field
House. They will be excused from
P EM classes.
Jerry Sheets,
Varsity Manager

This month is the big one for Coach
Chet Stackhouse and his freshman
track squad. Within the next three
weeks the frosh face seven foes in
telegraphic meets, including four Big
Ten rivals. Times and distances will
be exchanged. with the following
teams: Purdue, Iowa, Wisconsin,Ohio
State, Missouri, Michigan State, and
Notre Dame. No exact dates have'
been set for the time trials.
To take on this heavy schedule
Coach Stackhouse has from eighty to
ninety men working out every day at
Yost Field House. However, he has
lost sixteen to the armed forces, and
it remains to be seen if this gap can
be closed.
Field Events Strong
The frosh seem to have their great-
est strength in the field events-
which news should be very cheering
to Varsity Coach Ken Doherty. When
talking about his fieldtmen, "Stack"
can't hold back his optimism.
In the high jump the freshman
mentor has three men who have all

leaped heights over six feet. Reading
from left to right they are Paul Ban-
der, Fred Weaver, and Bob Gardner.
A trio of jumpers like these is a
pleasant sight to any coach.
The shotput picture is good, too. On
hand is George Kreger, who has put
the shot to a distance of 45' 8%".
And Bob Gardner, besides competing
in the high jump, is only inches be-
hind Kreger.
Moving to the broad jump, we can
find more good news. And here it is
again Bob Gardner, who should be a
leading contender for scoring honors
in the meets to come. Recently he
succeeded in reaching 21'. There is
another good prospect in Varskin
Baydarin. Coming out only a short
while ago, he has already cleared 22'
with greater distances in sight.
Pole Vault Strong
For the pole vault, "Stack" has
Eugene Moody with a vaultaof 12' to
his credit. Right behind Moody is
Paul Harvat, another new member of
the squad. Coach Stackhouse claims
he will be "really pushing Moody
In the sprints there are five men
competing for team places. Howard
Ccrman, Bob Nussbaumer, Bill Matny,
Jim Pierce, Aulden Nelson, and Joel
Fisher all should bring in points for
the frosh. The last three, Pierce, Nel-
son, and Fisher, run the low hurdles.
The quarter-mile men are Don
Sternisher and a couple of the sprint-
ers doing double-duty, Matny and
Pierce. "Stack" has a real prospect
for the half-mile. Dick Holl has been
clocked in the exceptional freshman
early season time of 2:00 flat.

of a Wolverine in the 220 and 440-
yard freestyle, races. That Wolverine
was Walt Stewart, who has made a
practice of surprising people with his
swimming ever since he' arrived at
Michigan 'from California.
.After' all, the Bucks had for these
races Keo Nakama, little -Hawaiian
sophomore who had caused asensa-
tion last year. by winning the mile
and quarter-mile in the National
AAU meet, and Jack. Ryan, Big Ten
champion for the 440-yard distance.
And Stewart, though rapidly 'improv-
ing all last year and taking a third
place in the Conference 440, was still
considered about a 'five - minute'
swimmer while Nakamaand Ryan
were thought capable of considerably
faster efforts.
Stewart Finishes Second
After 350 yards of the race this
year, however, Nakama found himself
just a stroke ahead of Wally and
Ryan was trailing in the Wolverine's
wake. A closing spurt by Keo brought
him home four strokes in front of
Stewart but Ryan was too far back to
challenge the first two. The 'five-
minute' swimmer had turned in the
best time of his life, 4:56.6.
In the 220-yard event, also, Stewart
bested the veteran Buckeye. for a
third place behind the dueling Na-
kama and Captain Johnny Patten of
the Wolverines.
Thus it was that the hard-working
Stewart had caught the Peppe-
coached swimmers unawares, as Mike
Peppe summed up to Ryan after the
440, saying, "He swam under five
minutes; you weren't ready for that."
Wolverine Improves
Walt was ready then and has con-
tinued to become 'readier.' Not con-
tent with his time on Jan. 23, Walt
covered the 440-yard grind a second
and a half faster in the Spartan
He thinks that Nakama will be
hurrying from the very start this
week. Ryan, also, has probably im-
proved since the first meeting. But
the tall, dark Wolverine junior will
still be very much in the picture.
Comparing Walt's short, : quick
stroke with the long, smooth arm ac-
tion of Patten, one doesn't see how
he manages to go so fast. During the
Michigan State affair Matt Mann
said that he doesn't, either. But the
fact remains that the transplanted
Californian is one of the best men in
the country for the longer distances
and he manages to keep plugging
along almost indefatigably with that
stroke of his, much to the consterna-
tion of rival swimmers.

It heats steel






... one of the thousands of jobs
Electricity is doing to win the war
The electric induction-furnace is an important tool in
helping to speed up war production ..- and it is most
unusual in its manner of operation. You can place your
bare hand inside the furnace and not feel a bit of heat.
But place a steel bar in the same spot, and in one or two
minutes it becomes WHITE-HOT.
Induction heating has several clear-cut advantages. For
example, it is useful in hardening the surface of a steel
piece without affecting the toughness of the steel below
the surface. Armor-piercing shells are point-hardened
by this process. Engines and parts for airplanes, tanks,
submarines, armored cars, etc. are made with the help
of induction heating. A crankshaft whose surface has
been hardened in this way will last five to ten times
longer before needing attention than it would without
such treatment.
Gun barrels of a certain caliber are now centrifugally
cast from alloy-steel melted in an induction furnace.
Stainless steels and "fussy" alloys are commonly melted
in these furnaces, as are most of the high-speed and tool
steels used for cutting. And bronze castings for naval
torpedoes also come from the induction furnace.
Induction heating and melting represents only ONE of
thousands of jobs that electricity is doing today in .arsen-
als and war plants. Electric power is a weapon of war.
