Starting Lineup
Michigan's starting lineup will be
practically the same as it was for
Central Michigan,*with the exception
Ihat Tom King will probably start at
one of the forwards. Tom has looked
very impressive in practice this week
and has been averaging close to 15
points in all of the practice games.
The other forward will be Dave
Strack who last Saturday took top
scoring honors with 13 points.
The starting guards will be Don
Lund and Dick Shrider, -a combina-
tion which has been working very
efficiently the past week. The center
spot will be handled by Bill Oren.
However, Bill Seymour has been com-
ing along very nicely this week and
should see considerable action at the
pivot position.
Summary of Basketball
In a summary of basketball activi-
ules this week, three events of note-
wor thy importance have taken place
' 1 i cu 6 i i'M. place tHowie W'iktl has
ujped out of school as le is being
inducted in the Army very cihortly.
Secondly, Tom Paton, giant 6'5"
center, has returned to action. Paton's
ailing knee is well on the road to re-
covery and he should be ready for
next Saturday night's game with
Western Michigan.
The third event of importance was
the appearance of Elroy Hirsch, who
is now tryih, out for the basketball
w team. Hirsch is in pretty fair shape
as lie's been out for track ever since
rs the football season closed. With
- irsch's ailing shoulder greatly im-
proved it is quite possible that the ex-

Michigan power, as usual, will be
loaded in the mile and two-mile re-
lays. Doherty can put two veteran
quartets on the track that will stack
up against any in the country.
In the two-mile event, Doherty has
a team comprising the Hume twins,
Roxborough and Bob Ufer which is
faster, on paper, than the cham-
