earm Meets
Woodstock in
Saturday Game
Lowrey Needs Center
To Replace Derleth;
Greer Is Possibility
Although the Michigan sextet
chalked up their first victory of the
season Saturday Coach Eddie Lowrey
faces a serious problem as the team
goes into a week of hard practice
before meeting Woodstock this week-
Lowrey's difficulty is finding a
center to replace Captain Bob Der-
leth, who is still suffering from the
knee injury he received before Christ-
mas. While Derleth played against
Sarnia he is still not in top shape.
When he began practice again he
irritated the old injury and it hinders
him on the ice. Derleth played a fine
game Saturday, but Lowrey said that
it is not worth permanent damage to
his leg to have him keep up the hard
Vince Abbey may be back to the
squad by Saturday and if he is Low-
rey could use him at center. Also
there would be the possibility of
switching Ted Greer back to this spot
from his present wing slot and using
Abbey at wing. If Lowrey decides not
to use Abbey on the first line he can
still put Greer in at center and push
Anderson back up to the front line.
Leading Scorer
Last night Lowrey said that he
would make no changes yet, but
would keep looking for a center if
Derleth's knee shows no improve-
ment. Lowrey has long been known
for his refusal to play an injured man
since no hockey game is worth seri-
ous damage to one of his men.
In the two games Greer has
amassed a total of four points on
three -goals and one assist. Playing
only in-the game with Sarnia Johnny
Jenswold has a total of three on two
assists and one goal. This is a good
record for Jenswold since he was
previously a defense man and played
his first. game at wing Saturday.
Nb fefense ChangeI
rThe,.-defense- will stay as it is for
the present unless Lowrey moves
Derleth back to his original spot on
the back line. If he finds a suitable
center this will be a likely move. In
this case he would use Derleth along
with Tom Messinger and Bob Hen-
derson, alternating them in the de-
fense positions.
Woodstock, the opposing team for.
Saturday, .defeated Sarnia so the.
contest, for this week looks like a
stiff. one. The Michigan sextet will'
probably have a hard fight ontheir
hands' -.but- with the material they
proved -they had against Sarnia, they
should -make a good showing this

The Michigan basketball front pre-
sented a somewhat gloomy picture
last night as Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan's charges continued their prep-
aration for a pair of tough week-ends
during which they will take the road
to play two games each with power-
ful Wisconsin and Purdue quintets.
The main worry which is besetting
the squad is a plague of injuries
which have struck the squad at sev-
eral vital spots. The conditions of
forwards Wayne Thompson and Bob
Wiese, both of whom have drawn
starting assignments at different
times during the season, are still un-
certain, but they will probably see
only limited action against the Bedg-
ers this week-end if they break into
the lineup at all.
King and Hirsch Injured
Two more Wolverines joined the
temporarily. crippled list at last
night's practice, when first-string
Tommy King, current -leading Big
Ten scorer, pulled up with an injured
toe and was forced to retire to the
sidelines and center Elroy Hirsch suf-
fered a recurrence of an old ankle in-
jury. "The Ghost" was hurt in the
Northwestern game, but will probably
be in shape for the trip to Madison
as will King.
To top it off the Wolverines turned
in one of their poorest showings of
the current season in a scrimmage
last night. The ragged play was due
in part to a natural let-down after
the tough games Friday and Satur-
day, but Oosterbaan grimly hinted
that there will be some changes made
unless the squad shows improvement
within the next few nights. The ball-
handling and shooting were very
ragged as a read-shirted reserve team
ran over, through, and around the
first-stringers for easy shots.
Wendland Bolsters Badgers
Another blow to Michigan victory
hopes against Wisconsin is the trans-
fer of Russ Wendland, All-Conference
guard for Northwestern last season,
to the Badger institution. Wendland
was used sparingly by Coach Harold
Foster in previous games but when he
was in the lineup he showed up very
well and should be in top form for
the Wolverines. Another Navy trans-
fer, Charles Tourek, has also looked
good at a guard position and will bol-
ster the Badgers considerably. The
addition of these two men should
more than offset the loss of two of
Foster's men to the Navy. These lat-
ter, center Leland O'Brien and for-
ward Bob Gallagher, were both key
men, but Wendland and Tourek seem
to be capable of filling their shoes.
Wisconsin's record this season
stands at two victories ag'ainst six de-
feats. The wins were racked up
against DePauw Pre-Flight and Mar-
quette, while the losses were to Mar-
quette, Notre Dame, Camp Grant,

Illinois and Northwestern. While
they have failed to compile an im-
pressive record, the Badgers have
shown improvement since the start of
the campaign, and should play their
best ball of the season against Michi-
Wolverines Favored
On the face of the records the Wol-
verines rate as a slight favorite to
cop both games from the Wisconsin
five. Michigan fared much better
against both Illinois and Northwest-
ern than did the Badgers and on that
basis rates the edge. Wisconsin was
overwhelmed by the Wildcats 60-38
and dropped two close decisions to
the Illini 45-4a anc& 43-38, while
Michigan trounced Illinois 52-45 and
lost by only ten points to Northwest-
ern. However, comparative scares
don't mean a great deal in basketball
and it is rather risky to speculate. The
Badgers are an up and coming outfit.

Sgt. Barney Ross of the Marines, for-
