press agent of the professinal

concerning such offers,
A talk between Griffith and
Strickler brought out the fact that
both Wisconsin and Iowa were in-
volved. In the case of Wisconsin,
the possibility that the school itself
did not imake the offer or back it, up
was pointed out.
Someone, Strickler thought, had
offered inducements to a profes-
-sional gridder at Wisconsin to
play on the Badger eleven. The
player in question was Ted. Frisch,
who played with Green 1Bay Pack-
ers in 1942 and 1943. Frisch, re-
jected from military service be-
cause of a punctured eardrum,
enrolled at Wisconsin to try to get
a master's degree in physical edu-

Frisch to help him stay in school,

In entering Hume, twin brother of
Captain Bob Fiume of the 1944 Wol-

herty pointed out that it would be
valuable experience for his miler.
"I don't expect him to do better
than fifth against such a field," Do-
herty said. "Ross is not entering the
race with the idea of winning, but he
will do his best and make a race of it
It's an honor to be invited," Ie point
ed out, "since only the nation's elite

Knee Injury Bothers
Ross has been bothered by a knee
injury for the past few weeks and
has been unable to bear down in prac-
tice runs. Yesterday, he and brother
Bob dead-heated a mile and one-
half in 7:04.4, which is considered as
remarkable time so early in the sea-
son. Last season, the boys didn't hit
7 minutes flat until the eve of the
Conference in March.
Doherty will know definitely wheth-
er or not Ross will be ready this Sat-
urday afternoon when he and Bob
run a special three-quarter-mile race
at the Field House.
Best Mile Is 4:18
A junior with only one year of
collegiate competition, Ross won the
Conference mile last March in 4:19.4,
beating out Captain Dave Matthews

Cardinal PresIdent N t
Sure Team Will Operate
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 25.-(/)-In the
most pessimistic statement made to
date by a major league baseball ex-
ecutive, President Sam Breadon of
the St. Louis Cardinals asserted to-
day: "The way players are being tak-
en by the draft, it does seem ques-
tionable whether we'll have enough
left to operate."
'He said he considered 19 players-
eight pitchers, two catchers, five in-
fielders,'and four outfielders-the ab-
solute minimum with which a club
could go through the season.

CHICAGO, Jan. 25.- (A1}--- Al-
though the American League cur-
rently has ample manpower for a
successful start in the 1944 baseball
season, it's only a far-fetched guess
what the situation will be on opening1
day, less than three months away.
A player inventory today showed
that of the 257 men (six m6re than
in 1918) on spring training rosters,
only about 50 are 4-F's while eight
others hold honorable discharges
from the service. This group, en-
larged somewhat by players over 38.
is the only one which can be counted
on. The majority of the )layers ar
eligible for the draft.
Thirty-one players have entered
the service since the close of the
1943 campaign. As far as numbers
were concerned, the Washington
Senators were hardest hit, losing
seven men, including their regular
first and second basemen Mickey
Vernon and Gerry Priddy. Least
affected in this respect were 'the
Chicago White Sox and Boston fled
Sox who lost two men apiece.
The White Sox are especially sta-
bilized by having nine 4-1's- among
whom are pitchers Orval Grove and

This match with Purdue las been
pending for soie time, and the final1
signing caused much relief. The con-
test was scheduled for Jan. 22 but,
because of a nmisuuderstauding, Pur-
due signed Indiana for that date.l
Therefore, the athletic directors ofJ
the two schools have 'been burningl

a meet between the schools. Thisi

Purdue Htas Many Veterans
The Boilermakers are undefeated
to date, and should provide the first
big test of the season for Michigan,
as well as many thrills for the spec-
tators.. The team is composed . of
many veterans and is definitely one
of the Conference threats.
Some of the topnotch men on the
squad are Phil Nettersheim, 145-
pounder, who won a_ wrestling letter
at Purdue last year and did quite
well in the Conference meets; Bill
Copple, 155-pounder. who wrestled
three years at Nebraska, and brings
an enviable record with him; Dick
Sclieppard in the 165-pound divi-
sion, a high class wrestler from Iowa,
and Ed Iershli, a 175-pounder.
lUersch To Face Galles
Hersch is from Franklin and Mar-
shall College, which continually 'has
good wrestling teams. Ed has com-
piled a splendid record and has had
much mat experience. So far he has
lived up to all advance notices this
season.' His match with Jim Galles.

Wrestlers Take It Easy
Corky gave his boys a rest Sunday

mistakes, they will spend the rie-
mainder of the week polishing up
holds and take-downs.
The Wolverine starting army 'wilt

at 121 and 128 pounds, but Corky
will not be sure who will start in the
latter mentioned weights until short-
ly before match time.

Breaks Decide Purdue Tilt1
Especially disheartening was the
first tilt with Purdue last Friday when
an injury to Center Elroy Hirsch, a
'tinier's error, and some questionable
officiating combined to defeat the
Wolverines in a game which had ap-
peared to be on ice. Disappointed
by the loss, Michigan resistance faded
in the second game after a slam-bang
first half, allowing the Boilermakers
to turn loose a barrage of baskets
and win going away.
By virtue of their double victory
Purdue cleared one of the major
hurdles in its race for the Conference
cage championship, although they
must still get by Iowa, Northwestern,
up their eighth successive
without a setback before a
crowd at Boston Garden.
