Basketball Squad Has Long Drill; Civ
Set for Western Michigan Game Fir
st Events To
in Early Lead
By DAVE LOEWENBERG
The Maize and Blue cagers had
their last hard workout of the week
in preparation for tomorrow night's
game against the rampaging West-
ern Michigan Broncos.
Per usual, the squad was divided
into two teams, the Reds and Whites.
The Whites won the fracas 18-16
but were hard pressed in doing so.
Starting for the victors were Wayne
Thompson and Dave Strack, for-
wards; Bill Seymour, center, and
Dick Shrider and Don Lund, guards.
This unit will probably compose the
starting lineup against Western Mich-
The Whites looked better yesterday
than they have all week. The rea-
son' for this is that the Red team
showed great improvement over pre-
vious performances ad kept right
on the heels of the first stringers
throughout the scrimmage.
Thompson Starts To Click
Wayne Thompson topped the White
scorers with eight points. "Tommy"
was hitting nicely on a one-handed
shot from the free throw circle. He
undoubtedly has one of the finest
one-handed shots seen here at Mich-
igan in a long time and Saturday
night would be an ideal time for
"Tommy" to begin hitting his stride.
So far this season, Thompsonuhas
not been playing up to his usual
standard, but now that he's acclim-
ated himself to the Wolverine style
of attack, a quick return to form
should be noted in Wayne Thompson.
Closely following Thompson in
points scored was Dave Strack with
six points. Strack played his usual
consistert game and with the 1943-44
basketb;l season just getting under-
way, an outstanding season should
be -enjoyed by Strack, if he continues
to display the same brand of basket-
ball he's been showing so far.
Representing the Reds, were Bruce
lilkene and Bob Wiese at forwards,
Rex Wells, center, and John Leddy
and Elroy Hirsch at the guards.
High point man for the Reds was
Rex Wells who accountedfor one-
half of his team's 16 points. Wells'
specialty is a one-handed overhead
pivot shot which he throws from the
free throw circle. This shot is almost
impossible to stop, and if Wells con-
tinues to hit with it, the opposition
will really have something to worry
Clash in Final
To highlight the intramural pro-
grams of the Army and Navy, an All
Star Army team meets an All Star.
Navy team at 7:45 tonight at Yost
Both the Army and the Navy have
chosen their squad members from the
teams which play every Friday night
in the intramural tournaments.
The Navy team which is a combin-
ation of all the teams entered in the
regular intramural games, has been
working out this past week under the
careful eye of Chief Specialist (A)
George A. Nash who is the coach of
the squad. His probable starting line-
up will be Willoughby and Halub at
Sforwards, Shortgatcenter, and Dean
and Hansen at guards.The complete
line-up of Navy players includes for-
wards Mansour, and Van Aken, Ros-
enbach and Fate, centers, and guards
Clauss, mpskie, and Taylor.
After winning the Army's elimina-
tion tournament team one of Com.-
pany E won the right to form the nu-
cleus of the All Star team. Company
E's team Is supplemented by players
from other teams in the league. The
starting line-up for the All Star Army
team is Davis and Oliver at forwards,
Parker and Sartorio at the guard po-
sitions, and Linde playing the cen-
ter position. Sergeant Parker, who
manages and coaches Company B's
team, is the coach for the All Star
The referees for the game are Mas-
ter Sergeant< Robert Clancy of Sta-
tion Compliment and 'Chief Special-
ist (A) George A.' McAfee.
Both the Army and Navy bands will
be on hand to provide entertainment
for the event. The general public is
invited and any Army man who wish-
es to attend the game can get special
permission by contacting his com-

The civilians got off to an early
lead in the intra-squad track meet
yesterday afternoon with victories in
both the quarter and half-mile
Bob Ufer won the quarter-mile,
closely followed by Bill Matney. Both
of these boys are civilians. Jim Pierce
and Mel Detwhiler took third and
fourth place respectively for the Na-
vy. Ufer's winning time was 50.8 se-
conds, excellent for so early in the
The half-mile finished in a dead
heat between the Hume twins, Bob
and Ross, and John Roxborough. Dick
Barnard took fourth place for the
Navy. The time was 2:01.5, somewhat
higher than Coach Ken Doherty had
Hurdles Held Yesterday
Preliminaries and semi-finals in
the high hurdles were also held yes-
terday. Elmer Swanson, Vic Znorski,
and Bob Caspari qualified for the
Marines, Sheldon Kavieff and Rob-
erts for the Navy and Bud Low for
the civilians. The best time turned in
during the course of the afternoon
was by Kavieff, 8.9 seconds.
At the completion of two events
the civilians now have garnered 18
points to four for the Navy and zero
for the Marines.
Meet Not Over
The meet is not over by any means
as the civilians were expected to get
off to an early lead with victories in
the middle distance events. The ser-
vice teams are expected to pick up the
greater share of points in the hurdle
races, and the 60-yard dash. It is
highly possible that the meet may not
be decided until the running of the
mile relay, the last event.
Today's events get under way at
4:30 p.m. with the running broad
jump finals, followed by the running
high jump, pole vault, and shot put
at 8 p.m., the two mile at 8, the semi-
finals in the 60-yard dash at 8:15,
the finals of the 65-yard high hurdles
at 8:25, the 60-yard dash finals at
8:40, the mile at 8:50, the 65-yard
low hurdles at 9, and the mile relay
