Cagers Play Purdue

Tonight in First of Two-Game Series

141 -

Boilermakers Unbeaten
In Four Big Ten Starts

A thrice beaten Michigan basket-
ball team will meet the pace setting
Boilermakers today at Lafayette in
the first of a crucial two game series.
The Boilermakers top the Western
Conference standings with four wins
against no losses. Coach Lambert's
have captured two games from Min-
nesota, and one from Indiana and
Chicago respectively. However, all
three of these teams are at the bot-
tom of the C6nference race and the
game today against Michigan will be
the Boilermakers' first major test of
the campaign.
Purdue must sweep the two game
series against the Wolverines in or-
ler to maintain their number one
position in the Big Ten Standings. A
double loss to Purdue would place
iichigan on a same level with the
other weaker Conference teams, In-
diana, Minnesota, and hapless Chi-
Michigan Starting Lineup
It will be necessary for Michigan
to sweep the series with Purdue if
they intend to make any notable ad-
vancement in the Big Ten Race.
laying both of these games on the
Boilermakers' home court makes this
assignment even more difficult than
The Michigan starting lineup will
probably be Dave Strack and Tom
King at forward, Elroy Hirsch at the

pivot position, and Don Lund and
Charlie Ketterer at guards, Ketterer,
by virtue of his fine performance in
the Wisconsin games last week-end,
has elevated himself to a starting
berth in the Maize and Blue lineup.
Seven other players, Bill Seymour,
John Leddy, Bob Wiese, Wayne
Thompson, Tom Cook, Dick Shrider,
and Bruce Hilkene complete the
Michigan traveling roster. With
Wiese and Leddy ready for action,
this will be actually the first time
this season that the Wolverines have
been at full strength. Wiese has been
out with an injured ankle and Leddy
just returned from a two week fur-
Lodge Sparks Purdue Attack
The Purdue attack is sparked by
center Bill Lodge who has thus far
amassed 42 points in the four con-
ference games. The Boilermakers in
pre-season competition dropped four
consecutive tilts when Lodge was out
of the lineup. Since Lodge's return
Purdue has maintained a perfect re-
Two' other Purdue stars, Charley
Haag and Fred Hoffman are among
the leaders in he individual race for
scoring honors. Haag has chalked up
53 points which places him fourth
in the standings, while Hoffman's re-
cord of 43 points put him in eighth

Relay Team To
Defend Title in
New York Meet
Loss of Matthews
Will Demand Change
In Makeup of Team
Michigan's powerful two-mile re-
lay team will defend its 1943 cham-
pionship at the famous Millrose
Games Saturday, Feb. 5, in Madison
Square Garden, New York.
The Wolverine quartet of Bob
Ufer, Captain Dave Matthews, Ross
Hume and John Roxborough had
little difficulty in grabbing first
place last winter in 7:48.5. Some of
the nation's outstanding teams were
Makeup of Team Uncertain
The makeup of this year's quartet
will be slightly altered. Matthews
has graduated, leaving a vacancy
which Coach Ken Doherty will fill
after final time trials tomorrow aft-
ernoon in the Field House.
Two heats of the 880-yard run will
be run off at 4 p.m. with Ufer and
Roxborough battling each other in
the first. The real contest, however,
will come in the second in which the
Hume twins, Bob and Ross, and Dick
Barnard will fight it out. Doherty
indicated that the best two men in
this heat would join Ufer and Roxy
in making up the team.
Other Trials Listed
Coach Doherty has scheduled time
trials in all events for this afternoon
and tomorrow. Today's program in-
cludes the sprints, high and low hur-
dles and broadjump at 4:15 p.m.
Saturday, the Wolverine coach
plans trials for the pole vault at 1
p.m., high jump at 2, shotput at 2:30,
two 440-yard dash heats at 3:15, the
mile and one-half at 3:30, and the
two half-mile heats at 4.
Swanson, Segula May Go
There is a slight possibility that
Doherty will enter husky Elmer
Swanson in the high hurdles and
Bob Segula in the pole vault at the
Games. - The performance of both
men during the next week will de-
cide whether or not they make the
Should Swanson make the trip he
would be matched against three of
the top hurdlers of the country-
Whitey Hlad, former Michigan Nor-
-mal ace; Bob Wright, Ohio State
star, and Jimmy Fieweger, Lawrence
College, who placed second in the
1943 Nationals.

Swimmers Set
For Sailor Meet
Michigan Hopes Lie
In Freestyle Events
The Wolverine swimmers will real-
ly be out for blood tomorrow night
when they face the Great Lakes na-
tators here in the Sports Building
pool, and they have good reason to
be fired up.
In the first place, the 60 to 24 de-
feat the Bluejackets handed Michi-
ganlast week was only the 14th dual
meet decision lost by the Maize and
Blue under Coach Matt Mann the
past 20 seasons. During that time
they have won 143 and tied three-
certainly an enviable record to up-
Record May Fall
And if the Sailors beat the Wolver-
ines again tomorrow night, 1944 will
go into the records as the first sea-
son since 1938 in which Michigan has
lost two dual meets in one year.
There have been only three such sea-
sons during Mann's tenure here,
1928, 1934 and 1938.
This will be the first home dual
meet of the year for the Wolverines
whose principle strength lies ,in the
50 and 100-yard freestyle events,
Mert Church, Chuck Fries, Ace Cory,
and Achilles Pulakus lead the Wol-
verine threat in those events, in ad-
dition to composing the 400 yard re-
lay team that was barely nosed out
by the Great Lakes quartet last Sat-
Diving and Backstroke Weak
Notably weak in the diving and
backstroke in which they could gar-
ner only a third in each race, the
Maize and Blue swimmers should
hold their own in the other events.
Bill Smith should not have much
trouble in the 220 and 440, but if the
Varsity can grab the second and
third as they did in the quarter mile
last week, along with possible firsts
in the breaststroke, 50 and 100, to-
gether with scattered thirds, they
should be right in there fighting at
the end.
Coach Matt Mann said that there
was a good chance that Smith, now
recognized as the "world's greatest
swimmer," would shatter several re-
cords in the 220 and 440 yard events.

High School Track Star
To Attempt New Records
SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Jan. 20.-(P)
-Flyin' Charley Parker, the blond
bullet of Texas schoolboy track, does
not promise that he'll better any of
his marks this year but ventures that
if he does it will be because of added
Charley won't have to surpass his
1943 performances much to hang up
world records. He already is Nation-
al Scholastic 220-yard king with a
20.6 seconds timing and he has raced
the 100 in 9.5.
"If I better any of my 1943 records,
I would say a lengthened stride caus-
ed by added height would be account-
able," said the "pony express," now
in his final season at Thomas Jeffer-
son High School.
Parker is 17 years old, 5 feet 9 /2
inches tall and has gained exactly
one pound over last year, weighing
in at 147.

Surprising Hawkeyes
Engage Illinois Tonight
CHICAGO, Jan. 20.-AP- The
midwest's only major undefeated
basketball team, Iowa, will resume
its Big Ten Conference campaign
tomorrow and Saturday nights by
entertaining Illinois.
The Illini, beaten only twice this
season, should provide the surprising
Hawkeyes with their first real test of
the season.
Wallie Roettger, assistant Illinois
coach who scouted the Hawkeyes
last Saturday when they ran up
their seventh straight win by beat-
ing little Augustana College, 56-30,
reports that the team is tall and fast
with a starting lineup that can go
the full 40 minutes if necessary.
Northwestern, recognized as one of
the leading contenders for the cham-
pionship, meets Notre Dame in a
Chicago Stadium double bill tomor-
row night, then must face Ohio
State at Evanston on Saturday.
