T aSu'ad's JPotentialities
To Win Them Tentative
Schedule with Varsity
Two ten-man teams, studded with
numerous ex-college stars, will be
playing for Company C in the Army's
intra-company basketball league.
The starting five is composed of
John Steppling, St. Francis, and
George Kraw, University of Southern
California, forwards; Eldon Price,
Shaw, center; Ernest. Mahr, Ala-
bama, and William Lachell Wiscon-
Grouped around 6 foot 3 Price, the
soldiers represent lightning speed and
enough potential scoring strength to
win a tentative scheduling with the
University of Michigan varsity court
squad, according to Team Manager
Morris Blitz, former All-American
football guard at Boston College.
The second squad is even taller and
heavier than the first team. Members
are Paul Molnar, Duke, and Merton
James, Butler, forwards; Wesley
Fahrbach, Fordham, center; Carl
Schuler, Wisconsin, and John Swan-
son, DePauw. Outstanding on the
third team are Paul Bornet, North
Carolina, guard, and Frank Kolom-
botovich, Queens, forward.
Manager Blitz pointed out that no
member is assured of a permanent
position on the squad and that be-
cause of the wealth of material men
will be substituted freely.
Intra-company competition begins
Friday night.

many of which have been overlook-

workout was capped by a defensive
drill against Michigan formations.

Paul Brown and his boys arescom-

ment the goal predominant in the
mind of Paul, as well as the entire
Ohio State student body, is the up-
setting of Michigan's football filled
In fact, ever since the Buckeyes
and the Wolverines first met on the
gridiron in 1897 upsetting Michigan
has been the greatest joy of the men
from Columbus. It doesn't make
any difference how they make out
against the rest of their opponents,?
if they beat Michigan their season
is a success.
And of late this traditional battle
usually had a lot to do with who
came out of the year's gridironI
scramble wearing the Big Ten crown.
Coming at the end of the season!
with each team primed to throw ev-
erything it had at the other, the
clash has attracted an average of
over 67,000 howling fans per each ofj
the 21 games.
Game Will Be Close
However, this year with the Wol-
verines roosting at the top and the
Bucks near the bottom of the Con-
ference standings, not more than
45,000 spectators are expected to be!
on hand for the clash. Yet this
should turn out to be one of the,
Wolverines' closest tilts of the sea-
son. (Notre Dame was so long ago.)
Brown won't -have to work too
hard to bring his youthful charges
to a fighting pitch. Most of them
remember that day back in 1939
when Tom Harmon and company
routed the Bucks, 40-0, and they
set out to avenge that defeat every
year. The student body is helping
too by throwing a gigantic pep rally
the eve of the game.
Wolverines Are Calm
On the other hand, Michigan is
acting fairly calm about its season
finale. The half of the squad that
represented Wisconsin last year
hasn't had a chance to absorb some
of this traditional rivalry, and only
two of the probable starters, Bob
Wiese and Rudy Smeja, have ever
represented the Maize and Blue
against Ohio State.
Despite the fact that the Buckeyes
do have this psychological advant-
age, the Wolverines are still favored
by two or three touchdowns. If
they do it will be the first time a
Brown coached team has met defeat
at the hands of Michigan.
