Both Teams Unbeaten
In Previous Matches;-
Close Score Expected
Michigan's wrestling team will
meet the powerful Boilermakers at
3 p.m. today in the Field House, in a
match that will go far in determin-
ing the outcome of the 1944 Confer-
ence champion.
Both teams will present untar-
nished slates when they enter this
contest, and both squads have been
rated as pre-season favorites to fin-
ish strongly in the final Big Ten
tabulations. Purdue has swept aside
such formidable opposition as North-
western, Illinois and Wheaton Col-
lege, while Michigan has only seen
action once, and that was a tripmph
against Ohio State.
Teams Have Looked Impressive
The Boilermakers have had mor;
actual combat than the Maize and
Blue matmen this year ara they
have looked impressive in their three
starts so far, but tb,; Wolverines
looked equally impressive in their
one match, as their steam-roller
score against the Buckeyes tends to
indicate. Al,:), Coach Ray Courtright
has not cen letting any moss grow
under the feet of his wrestlers, and
the iack of actual matches has been
%iade up by frequent intra-squad
These intra-squad matches have
kept the Michigan wrestling team in
good shape and have tended to cor-
rect any of the major mistakes which
the team makes in the heat of bat-
tle. The Wolverines have had inten-
sive workouts ever since their last
mnat'ch, with the Buckeyes, and they
will be as ready as ever to meet Pur-
due today.
Squads Are Composed of Veterans
Coaches Reeck and Courtright
have two teams which would make
any coach in the Big Ten proud to
have. Both teams are star-studded,
and there are few of the men who
will participate in today's matches
who haven't had considerable wrest-
ling experience at some school or
Corky felt that he was working his
squad too hard. so there was no
intensive practice this week, as he
didn't want his boys to get stale
before this important meet with the
team from Lafayette.
Neither of the squads have met the
same opponent this season, so there
is no basis for comparative scores.
Therefore, the meet could go either

Sextet Seeks
Third Victory
Over McMaster
Although tonight's hockey '?ame
with. McMaster University was ar-
ranged only this week, chances are
that fans will have an opportunity
to see an excellent tussle when the
two teams take to the ice at 8:00 p.m.
McMaster was contacted only
Tuesday when the AAU refused to
sanction the game scheduled with
the Blue Frontier team from Buffalo,
N.Y. However, the McMaster coach
has been angling for a game with the
varsity for some time, and Coach
Eddie Lowrey was glad to be able to
work in a game with the University
McMaster, which is in Hamilton,
Ont., has played other games this
season and was victorious when meet-
ing sextets from Siulte Sainte Marie
and from Clevcland. Being a Cana-
dian club, tie chances are that it will
provide stiff opposition.for the reju-
venat,4d varsity pucksters.
Lowrey is planning to start the
same lineup which proved so success-
ful in last Saturday's game with the
RCAF lads from Fingal, Ont. The
aggressive forward wall of Vince
Abbey and Johnny Jenswold at the
wings and Ted Greer in the center
lane, which accounted for six of last
week's eight goals, will again be called
on to pour them in, and they will be
backed up by the well-coordinated
second line composed of Captain Bob
Derleth, at center, and Jack Athens
and Gordie Anderson at wings.
Defensively, Lowrey is counting on
Tom Messinger and Bob Henderson,
scrappy naval trainees who played'

sixty minutes of smart hockey. Dick

only thing certain when these two
powerhouses of the Midwest collide,
is that they will provide many thrills
in a slam-bang affair.

WHEN LOWELL OBERLY, Wisconsin-now-Michigan 135-pounder, steps
out on the mat this afternoon at the Field House for his match
with Purdue's Dannie Nettesheim, he may be more nervous and tense than
usual. And, if he is, the reason will be his Boilermaker opponent.
Don't get the impression that Lowell is afraid of Dannie, or that
he lacks confidence in what he can do, It's nothing like that. There's
a deeper reason behind it. You see, Lowell and Dannie are boyhood
pals and have chummed around together since they first met in the
seventh grade at Washington High School in Malwaukee, Wis. "He's
just like a brother to me," Lowell said.
We've fooled around a lot together on the mat," he added, "but this
is the first time in our lives that we'll be wrestling each other under
different colors. We're as close as any pair of brothers could be. I can
remember the last time we fought for keeps back in 1941, but that was
when we were on the same team. For some reason or other, this is different."
OBERLY'S reference to the 1941 meeting was the Wisconsin AAU
tournament in Milwaukee. Both he and Nettesheim were entered
in the 135-tound division. It was their last year at Washington High
and they were all set to toss everything at each other, including the
referee. The match, as you might have guessed, was a terrific struggle
all the way. And, as expected, it ended in a 3-3 tie. however, the
judges liked Lowell's aggressiveness, and awarded him the match on
that basis. '1his victory gave him a fourth in the 135-pound division
of the tournament.
Of course, they first started battling each other back in grade school.
"We sat in the same classes next to each other for six straight years,"
Lowell said, "and were just as close as brothers could be." They both tried
out for the high school team in their freshman year, and Oberly beat his
chum out in the 125-pound class. The following year Lowell put on weight
and moved up to 135 pounds which he won easily, while Dannie stuck to
125 and also won. By the senior year they were both wrestling at 135
pounds and Dannie was shading Lowell consistently.
"We wrestled a great deal this summer," Lowell said, "and it was
just like old times. One day I'd just manage to beat him and then he'd
come back the next day and ni me. I often thought about wrestling
against Dannie when I went to Wisconsin in the fall of 1941 and lae went
to Purdue. We thought about going to college together, but Dannie
wanted to be an engineer and I had my eye on physical education.
And so we wound up in different schools."
0BERLY completed two years at Wisconsin before enlisting in the
Marine Reserves. That's how he happened to end up at Michigan
as Coach Ray Courtright's star 135-pounder. And Nettesheim is a jiunior
at Purdue. Both competed in the Conference finals at Evanston last year.
Nettesheeim was second in the 135-pound division, while Oberly lost out in
the second round, 13-12 in overtime, to Hal Brunner who went on to win
the title at 128 pounds.
Courtright liked Oberly's possibilities. "He's fast, aggressive and
ambitious.. He learns quickly and should do well in the Conference
next month," Courtright said.

Woiverite Swimmers To
Face Purdue Here Today

The Maize and Blue swimmers
should have little trouble in gaining
their second Conference win at 2:30
this afternoon when they play host
to Purdue at the Sports Building
Today's meet, which is Michigan's
first home Big Ten meet of the year,
will be just another warmup for the
Wolverines as the Boilermakers have
a rather unimpressive squad. Their
main hope seems to rest on the
shoulders of Phil Hansel, newly elect-
ed captain, who is entered in the 220
and 440-yard swims.
Wolverines Favored for Team Honors
As Purdue looked rather unim-
pressive against the Northwestern
tank squad, Michigan, who easily ov-
erpowered the Wildcats Jan. 15, are
odds on favorites to win the team
honors. The Wolverine mermen will
have a hard time, however, taking
all of the individual honors. Besides
their captain, the Boilermakers boast
fine swimmers in Bill Porter and Ted
Salmon, both V-12 transfers, who

will compete in the free style events.
Matt Mann's freshman breaststroke
star, Heini Kessler, will have Jimmie
McMullen and Bob Barnard, who fin-
ished second and third, respectively,
in the Northwestern meet, for his
competition. Completing the Purdue
entrants are Bob Brogan, Indianap-
olis freshman, in the distances; Hugh
Woolverton and Bob Huntington in
the backstroke, and Claude Bower in
the diving events.
Mermen Bid for Win
The Wolverine swimmers will be
endeavoring to redeem themselves to-
morrow after their defeat at the
hands of the Great Lakes Bluejackets.
Matt Mann will pit his crack relay
team of Church, Fries, Cory, and
Pulakus, against the Boilermakers,
along with Kessler, and John Mc-
Carthy, backstroker.
Michigan should conquer the Boil-
ermakers, in view of their past tri-
umph of Northwestern, but Purdue
will provide a stiff competition for
the Wolverines during the meet.
