A Close One!

By BILL MULLENDORE
After. being badly scared by a
fighting Fort Custer quintet, Michi-
gan's cagers managed to outlast their
foes and eke out a narrow 46-444tri-
umph in the final moments last night
at Yost Field House.
From the opening gun it was ap-
parent that the soldiers were not
going to be content with their pre-
game role of pushover for a sup-
posedly vastly superior Wolverine
team. They -dominated the play com-
pletely throughout the first ten min-
utes of the first half and at one
stage held a 14-9 lead. With Dave
Strack leading the attack Michigan
overcame this deficit and pulled into
a 22-19 margin at half-time.
Varsity Gains Lead
The start of the second half looked
like a runaway for the Maize and
Blue cagers as they broke out in a
rash of baskets and apparently sewed
up the game by taking a 37-26 lead.
The soldiers were not to be denied,
however. Finding the range sudden-
ly, they kept whittling away at Mich-
igan's lead and finally knotted the
count at 43-43 with two minutes of
playing time remaining. At this point
Dick Shrider 'came through with a
timely bucket on a "dog shot" and
Wayne Thompson added a free throw
a moment later after Fort Custer had
also tbolied from the foul line. The
Army quintet had numerous oppor-
tunities to score in the closing
seconds, but couldn't come through.
The contest ended with Michigan
out in front, 46-44.
Contest Is Rough
The game was featured by hard,
rough play by both teams with the
refere'es calling twenty-nine personal
fouls, 15 on Michigan. Forward :d
Fleming of Fort Custer was banished
on personals in the closing minutes
of play. Several other contestants
had three fouls.
Struck was easily the star of the
evening, garnering'19 points on nine
field goals and a free throw. He also
turned in a fine defensive, game.
Shrider, whose final field goal
clinched the game, and Thompson
were tied for second place in Michi-
gan scoring honors with seven points
apiece.
Howard McCarty, highly publi-
cized Fort Custer center, stood out

for the soldiers. He finished the eve-
ning with twelve points to his credit
in addition to a fine all-around
game. Teammates Paul Patterson
and Lou Priester followed with nine
and eight, respectively.
The victory gave Michigan a per -
fect record of three wins in three
starts. With a game against the
strong Western Michigan team in
the offing. this clean slate is defi-
nitely in danger since the Broncos

After 'esterday's inter-squad
match. Coach Ray Ccurtright's face
was beaming from ear to ear.
It was the fir. t (atU8, competition
that his squad has had 1 his year and,
apparently, -Cork:y was wi-:: satisfied
with the results that his boys showiedI
him.
Flu Weakens Grapylrs
Although manv of his topnotchI
performers were ill with flu, they all
competed. Some of the matmen wore
rather weak, so their matches were

The team was divided into two sec-

A comparatively green Michigan1
sextet, built around hard-skating
Ted Greer, sophomore center, took a'
4-1 drubbing from London A.C. last
eight on the Coliseum rink.
It was Greer who saved the Wol-
verines from a whitewashing with
his solo dash down the ice in the last
period. He outwitted the London de-'
fensemen and shot the puck past
Goalie Moffett in 15:12 of that final3
E period.

The visitors displayed greater
teamwork and had little trouble pen-
trating the Michigan defense after
he scoreless first period. Wingman

THE ALLENEL
TAPROOM
THE PERFECT PLACE
TO TAKE A DATE
FOR SUNDAY NIGHT SUPPER
THE ALLENEL HOTEL

Though running in their warm up
clothes the sprinters turned in some
remarkable times. Winners in their
respective heats were Brice Blan-
chard, Bob Nussbaumer and a fresh-
man, Julian Witherspoon. Wither-
spoon turned in the best time of 6.61
seconds.
The outstanding event of the day
was the mile run in which. Bob and
Ross Hume, and John Roxborough
finished in a &ad heat. Their time
for this event was 4:33. This early
season time seems to indicate that
Michigan's milers are certain to win
many points for the team. Even more
gratifying than. this excellent time
was the showing of John Roxborough
who had been at practice for only a
few days. ]Last year's Big Ten Indoor
half mile champion had been unde-
cided as to whether or not he would
be able to run this year, as his sched-
ule of classes was playing havoc with
his practice time.
Elmer Swanson, Michigan's out-
standing hurdler, did not take part
in the time yesterday as he had a
slightly strained muscle. Nussbaumer
took Swanson's place in the winners'
circle with the best time of 8.2 sec-
onds.
Bob "Hose Nose" Ufer as usual set
the pace in his favorite race, the
quarter-mile. Bob, as his.time of 54.7
seconds indicates, took it very easy
and more or less set a fast pace for
the others to follow.
Coach Doherty announced before
the time trials that there is a possi-
bility that the inter-squad meet
might be moved up to next Friday
night. It then would be run off in
conjunction with a service basketball
game being played in the Field House.
All men who are interested in
forming teams to play in the civil-
ian men's basketball league are
asked to contact Mr. A. A. James
in Room 5, at Waterman gym on
Monday or Tuesday. They will be
eligible to play in the basketball
league which plays every Saturday
afternoon.

the verification of just how hotly the}
matches were contested was in the
score, 191% to 1912 tie.
Greene Is Impressive
The grapplers wrestled three two-
minute periods with a decision count-
ing three points for the team score
and a fall counting five points for1
the team score.
Bob Reicart got the Yellows off to
a flying start as he won' a decision
from Freeman of the Blues. The next,
match saw George Curtis of the Blues

Freeman, doing double duty for the'

won an 8-5 decision from Mukai. The
Yellows then started to move up fast
as Syd Reynolds, representing them,

nung of the Yellows then won ano-
ther decision, this by a 6-2 count
from Reese of the Blues. Hank Man-
tho then put the Yellows in the lead
with the first fall of the match overj
Joe Joseph in 5:40. However, Jim .
Galles again knotted up the count
as he scored the second fall of the
match over Telfer in 2:55.
