Former Wolverines, Strother "T-

I and as- if this wasn't enough, Coach
Wallie Colbath also has the sensa-
tional Billy Smith for good measure.
Martin was the eccentric diver that
pleased the crowds from 1940-42
with his colorful dives and comical
antics on the springboard. Burtqn
swam for Michigan during the same
period, and in 1942 captained the
team to the Western Conference
championship. Dobbie was called the
"pocket battleship" by his team-
mates, but how he could churn

Wisconsin Is Threat to
Michigan's Title Hope
When the Michigan cagers take
the floor against the Wisconsin five
at Madison Friday night in the first
of a two-game series, they will be
meeting a team which rates as one of
the best in the Big Ten this season
regardless of a not too impressive
record in their first few encounters.
The Badgers have played nine
games to date, winning only four of
them, but these victories include im-
pressive wins over Illinois, Notre
Dame and Marquette. They also
dropped contests with the Irish and
the Illini, and suffered a humiliating
defeat at the hands of a powerful
Northwestern quintet, which leaves
them with a record of one victory
and two losses in Western Confer-
.Badgers Beat Illinois
The Badgers opened the Big Ten
campaign against Illinois and drop-
ped a heartbreaking 45-43 decision
in overtime. They next travelled to
Champaign, Ill. and humbled the
Illini on their home floor 43-38 to
avenge the earlier defeat and turn in
their best performance of the cam-
paign. On the following evening they
took on the Wildcats of Northwestern
and' were swamped by the current
Conference leaders 60-38.
Badger Coach Bud Foster has
juggled his starting lineup repeatedly
since the start of the season and may'
make even more changes before the
tilts with Michigan. On the basis of
past performance it is probable that
Des Smith, 6ft. 2in. sharpshooter
from Milwaukee will get the call at

one of the forward positions. Smith
has played consistently good ball all
season and leads the Badgers in
scoring, rating sixth in the Big Ten
in that department. Teaming with
him will probably be Don Dick, a
reserve at the start of the year, who
has improved rapidly and is also
among the Conference scoring lead-
Wendlund To Start
The pivot position belongs to lanky
Ray Patterson who stands 6ft. Sin.
and has been a consistent scorin%
threat. The guards will probably, be
Bill Johnson and Russ Wendlund.
Johnson has been in the starting
lineup since the first of the season
while Wendlund, a recent NUY
transfer and All-Conference guard at
Northwestern last year, will start for
the first time.
Injured Men Back
In the Wolverine camp things
looked better yesterday as the plague
of injuries subsided. Tommy King
appears to be in good shape after
suffering from a toe injury, while
Elroy Hirsch's ankle stood up well
through an intensive scrimmage.
Wayne Thompson and Bob Wiese
also worked out with the squad and
seemed to be on the road to recovery.
The actual scrimmage . yestlerday
still .left much to. be d.esired. :The
first-stringers could not get. stared

and dropping the Hoosiers, 62-43. The
Boilermakers totaled 132 points in
these two games, just short of the 138
total of Illinois in three contests. I

Wings Take Exhibition
From Kingston Teani
KINGSTON, ONT., Jan. 12 .-_iP--
The, Detroit Red Wings trailed for 15
minutes tonight then struck for sev-
en goals without reply to pave the
way for an 11-3 exhibition conquest
of Kingston Frontenac Army.
The Army team, exiled from the
Ontario Hockey Association s senior
group this week by a Canadian Army
ruling, jumped into command mid-
way through the first period on goals
by Oar Peters and Ab Corrigan. Bill
Jennings opened the. scoring for the
National Hockey League entry after
15 minutes of the period,
The Wings seized Ithe initiative in
the second period, otscoring Fron-
tenacs 4-0, and built up their advan-
tage in the last period with six goalsl
against one by Foster.
Pros iid for Players
CHICAGO, Jan. 12. -fP-- Thet
most extensive scramble for player
material in the history of pro foot-
ball was under way today as pros-
pects developed at the annual mid-
winter meeting of the National Foot-
ball League that at least 11 teams
and perhaps 12 will operate in the
circuit in 1944.
It is doubtful if the college draft
will provide much player material. j
Out of 300 campus gridders raffled'
off last June, only 20 saw action in
the fall. Most clubs will depend on
discharged service men to fill out

In. Billy- Smith, who was a fresh-
men - at.-Ohio State last year, the
Bluejackets have the greatest swim-
mer in the world. At present he holds
more world records than any other
individual. These marks are in al-
most every freestyle event from the
200. on up to 1400 yards. His most
outstanding records are: 2:07.7 for
the 220, 4.:38.5 for the 440, and 9:54.6
for the 880. Smith was eligible for
competition after the Western Con-
ference meet last year and paced the
Buckeyes to the National Collegiate
championship and the National AAU
indoor and outdoor championship.
Only a month ago eighteen year
old Jerry Kerschner, who is one of
'the youngest members of the squad,
defeated Smith in the 220. Consid-
ered one of the best swimming pros-
pects in the nation, Kerschner holds
the national prep school record of
2:16 in the 220.

In the backstroke they have Carl
