Purdue, co-champs of Western

jor crown within a few months. With
victories over Chicago, Indiana, and
a double win over Minnesota on the
cedit side of, the ledger, the high-
flying Lani ertuien can acid greater

fromn home, favors the boilermakers

Michigan will t.%ke the floor as de-

Last week, aifter beginning the Big'

Northwestern, 46-38, the varsity was

Smith Leads Invader's
The undefeated Great Lakes tank-
ers have a versatile, talented group
that makes them powerful in all
races. Bill Smith, called "the great-
est swimmer in the world," leads the
bluejackets. He paced Ohio State to
the National Collegiate champion-
ship and the National AAU indoor
and outdoor, championships last year.
Two of Matt Mann's former pupils
wil~l again work against their, former
coach and alma mater. Strother '"T-
Bone" Martin. exper't diving exhi-
bitionist, and Dobby .Burton, Midi,-
gan, captain in 1942 and .now known
as the "pocket. battleship," will be
additional mainstays of the enemy
attack Saturday.
The Wolverines, besides facing A
team that is exceptionally strong, did
not perform as well against the Blue-
jackets last Saturday as they did
against Northw Lera the pirevious
night. With last week's shellacking
challenging thiem, plus the advan-
tages of home territory and a home
crowd, the Maize and Blue showing
should be considerably better. Even
if the. Wolverines do improve, it is
very doubtful if they can gain
enough strength to match the all-
around. ability of the star-studded
EGreat Lakes array of talent..

There was some speculation as to
how quickly Bourland will be able to
round out into 'condition. Since he
has no place to train at Evanston, he'
must travel daily to Oak Park High
School in Chicago, ill., to find an
indoor track. And, since he has not
run on a board track before, he may
have trouble with the turns and the
harder footing.

top entry in this special race. I
