Mile Relay
Quartet Has
Bright Futue
Veterans, Ufer, GIas,
Matney Will Compete;
Detwhiler Ontstauding
The possibility of producing an-
other top notch mile relay team be-
comes somewhat more apparent as
the daily. workouts of the varsity
track squad progress. With Bob Ufer
as the backbone of the quartet,
Coach Ken Doherty can build tthis
year's team from three returning
lettermen and a very outstanding
The veterans who are again run-
ning in this event, the 440, are Willis
Glas, Don Sternisha, and Bill Mat-
ney. The newcomer is Mel Detwiler,
formerly of Central Michigan. Three
of these four men will join with Ufer
to fornm the mile relay quartet. .
Gas Rejoins Squad
Glas, as many will remember, has
been a mainstay on the squad for
two years, and was particularly out-
standing last year in contributing
fine, steady running to the relay
group. Glas is a "money" runner-
that is, he is always there at the
finish, in the money. He has turned.
in several commendable times in the
440, notably a sub-fifty second jaunt
at the Penn Relays last year. Will
is a steady, dependable runner and
should again be a .definite asset.
Don Sternisha, a Clevelander by
origin, achieved considerable atten-
tion during the Illinois-Michigan
track meet last year when he took
thirds in the 100 and 220 yard dash-
es in his first collegiate competition.
He is fast, determined, and durable,
and a hard runner to beat.
Matney Returns Also
Bill Matney came to Michigan last
year after spending two years at
Wayne University. Running was a
new experience for him, however, but
under Coach Stackhouse's careful
tutelage, hledeveloped into a promis-
ing quartermiler. Bill received his
acid test at the, Penn Relays, where
he ran the second leg on the relay
team. He became a regular member
of the quartet, but suffered with a
bone injury in his foot near the end
of the outdoor season. Matney is
capable of breaking fifty seconds this
indoor season. His best performance;
outdoors was a :49.6 effort last
Mel Detwhiler is a Navy trainee,
and a transfer from Central State.
Mel was a very much sought after,
runner npon graduation from high
school, and chose to run at Central.
A smooth, graceful runner, Mel has
already lived up to his reputation by
being most outstanding in practice.,
Detwhiler is expected to go below
fifty seconds and certainly is a
threat to the lettermen.
With these men to choose from,
there is no doubt that Coach Doh-
erty is pointing to the coming indoor
season with high hopes. The relay
team contenders will see initial ac-
tion on Dec. 18, when the squad will,
divide for a Navy-Civilian encounter.

earned their honors over other out-

for the entire campaign.
In earning the four spots in t he
backfield, Daley, Graham, Oiell and
Miller had to compete against such
high-ranking performers as Bertelli;
Eddie Prokop, of Georgia Tech, and
Alvin Dark, of Southwestern Louisi-
ana. rated the two best backs in
the South: Tony Butkovich, of Pur-
due, who smashed all BigTen scoring
records although transferred before
the season was completed: Johmy
iPodesto, driving force behind Alonzo
Stagg's College of Pacific outfit: Bob
Hoernschemeyer, of Indiana; Bob
Steuber, a Missouri transfer who
made little DePauw a powerhouse.
Cream of Irish
Miller probably was the outstand-
ing man in the Notre Dame back-
field. His elusiveness, after taking
advantage of the quick-opening plays
for which the Irish were famous, was
a thing to behold.
Daley also is another speed boy.
Although weighing 206 pounds, he
runs the century in 10 seconds flat.
In six games for Michigan he gain-
ed 817 yards, averaging 6.8 yards
each time he carried the ball. Against
Notre Dame, the only game lost by
Michigan, the Wolverine picked Ut
135 yards in 24 tries. The latter
stands as a record for a single man
against the Irish this season.
D~eeds of Graham
Graham was the chief reason why
Northwestern enjoyed its best sea-
son in recent years, losing only to
Michigan and Notre Dame. The
Waukegan (Ill.) 190-pounder was a
power both on the offense and de-
fense. He completed 32 out of 63
aerials for 491 yards to set up a Con-
ference record for three years of
Besides Daley, the only other Wol-
verine to rate a berth on any of the
first three teams is Tackle Merv
Pregulman, who was named to thi
third squad. Honorable mention was
given to Backs Elroy Hirsch and Bob
Dieses and Center Fred Negus, all
of Michigan.

Sucessf ul in Two Starts, Wolverine Cagers
Point. for Tilt Against WTestern State Team

C 11 2-
rz li a

After playing and winning two
games over the weekend, the Mich-
igan basketball squad returned to the
grind of nightly practice sessions in
preparation for an encounter with
the Fort Custer five this coming
Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
was absent from yesterday's drill,
being confined to his bed with an at-
tack of influenza. Bennie's assistant,
Coach Bill Barclay, who handled the
team Monday night against the Rom-
ulus Air Base five, had few comments
to make on the game. Most of the
remarks by the players themselves
dwelt on the conditions under which
the :civilian section of the squad
brought home its hard-fought 42-30
triumph. The Air Base gym was
rather small, and in addition one of
the backboards hung crookedly. As
one player put it, "During the first
half they shot at the basket and
during the second half we did." What-
ever might have been the reason,
Michigan made up a 16-13 halftime
deficit to win going away.
Test i Western State
Coach Barcley did indicate that the
cancellation of the game with Great
Lakes was a disappointment. The
Wolverine squad was anticipating the
contest in order to prove their merit
against first class competition. Bar-
clay added, however, that the ap-
proaching tilt with Western Mich-
igan, scheduled for Dec. 18, will prob-
ably be the acid test. The Fort Cus-
ter quintet, which barely nosed out
Central Michigan, defeated 51-28 by

Michigan, is not expected to put up a
great deal of competition Saturday.
Yesterday's workout found a hard-
driving yellow shirted team composed
of Charlie Ketterer, Bill Seymour,
Art Refiner, Robb Rutledge and bill
Cook defeating the firt i strin r±:c, in
the featured scrimmage of the eve-
ning. The regulars were off form and
experienced a great deal of difficulty
with their shootin". It was undoubt-
edly an off night and holds little
significance except as an interesting
occurrence. Two other short scrim-
mages were also staged. Tommy King
led the squad in scoring,, garnering
15 points while participating in all
three encounters.
Paton Still On Shelf
Absent from the proceedings were
first string forward Wayne Thomp-
son, whose grandmother died recent-
ly, and Howie Wikel, who starred in

the Romulus encounter. Big Tom
