Wolverines Bid for Win
Over Powerful Wildcats

By HANK MANTHO
The Wolverine wrestling team will
absorb part of the sport spotlight
this week, as they travel to Colum-
bus to meet the Buckeyes of Ohio
State Saturday.
This year's mat schedule has been
short compared to previous years,{
and the first match is also later in.
the season than usual. Therefore,
the wrestling team is quite anxious
over this match, and they are point-
ing for it.
If practice and hard work are any
indication of success, this team
should not have much trouble, as the
squad has been practicing diligently
since Nov. 1. They started practicing,
Saturdays after the last football
game, and last week, the 'grapplers
went all out, practicing every day,
which included New Year's Day and
Sunday.I
Team Has Intensive Practices
Coach Ray Courtright has had sev-'
eral inter-squad matches and the
team has been having individual
matches for the past two weeks. This

The fourth round of the Navy in-

By DAVE LOEWENBERG
Michigan's basketball team will
make its conference debut at 7:30
this evening in the Yost Field House
against a powerful Northwestern five
sparked by Otto Graham.
On the basis of comparative scores
the Wildcats hold a decided edge.
Their only defeat in pre-season com-
petition was a 47-45 win registered
by Western Michigan, but the Wild-
cats were minis the services of their
top scoring ace, Graham, who was
down with the flu.
Simultaneously with Graham's re-
turn to * the lineup, Northwestern
bounced back and chalked up two
impressive victories over the Notre
Dame and Great Lakes quintets re-
spectively. The Irish fell by the way-
side 48-32 and the sailors were
swamped 54-36.
As far as comparative scores go it
is interesting to note that Western
Michigan, which had previously
whipped the Wildcats 47-45, barely
eked out a 46-42 triumph over the
fighting Irish, while Northwestern
with Graham back in the lineup
rode roughshod over the boys from
South Bend.
Team Looks Better
Coach Benny Oosterbaan was hes-
itant about making any pre..game
speculations, but he felt quite confi-
dent that the Michigan team would
give a good account of themselves.
Oosterbaan said, "The squad seems
to have a little more confidence and
are hungry for the spoils of victory."
Most of the time yesterday after-
noon was spent in polishing up the
Wolverine attack. The team scrim-
maged briefly and looked better than
they have all week. They were click-
ing on their free throws and coupled
with the fine spirit of the team, one
got a favorable impression of the
Maize and Blue cagers.
Michigan's lineup is still a question
mark, but it is almost certain that

four boys, Dave S track, Don Lund,
Tom. King, and Elroy Hirsch will
draw starting assignments. The oth-
er starter will probably be selected
from a list which includes Wayne
Thompson, Bob Wiese, or Dick Shri-
der.
Michigan Uses Strategy
If Oosterbaan decides to use Strack
at a forward, the other guard posi-
tion will probably be taken over by
Dick Shrider. If Strack stays at
guard, then Thompson or Wiese will
get the starting call. With a player
of Graham's scoring ability in the
lineup the Michigan board of strat-
egy may decide to keep Strack at
guard in order to hold down the
highly touted Waukegan flash.
The Wildcat starting lineup will
have Graham and Johnny Ward at
forward, George Felt, 6'4" rebound
expert at center and at guards, Ben
Shadler, star sophomore from Ben-
ton Harbor, and Jerry Carle, Minne-
sota letter winner.
Both Otto Graham and Ben Shad-
ler were in the Northwestern back-
field last fall, and naturally are
anxious for revenge over the Wolver-
ines. However, these two Wildcat
pigskinners will be opposed by two
Michigan gridiron heroes, Elroy
Hirsch and Don Lund, who are just
as anxious for Michigan to maintain
its athletic supremacy over the boys
from Evanston. It may well be that
these four boys will have just as
much to say about tonight's basket-
ball game as they did when Michigan
opposed Northwestern on the grid-
iron in October.
After tonight's fracas all that'
awaits the Michigan basketball team
are the "Gee Whiz Kids" from Illi-
nois the following night.

The Sarnia Hockey Club, which is
sometimes referred to as the Point
Edward Club, will bring four veter-
ans from last year's team to help
make up their first string sextet
when they meet the Wolverines Sat-
urday night on the Michigan ice.
Leading the four returning players
is goalie Jack Rutter, who was out-
standing in the nets against Michi-
gan in two games last year. Coach
Lowrey's boys will have to have their
shooting eyes with them Saturday if
they hope to outguess Mr. Rutter.
On the forward line the center and.

dence was at the pivot spot, while

Charlie Levan held down left wing.

playmakers and have shooting abil-
