Risen Leads Staters Kessler, Maloney
To Lopsided Win Star for Michigan s

Conference Champion

Ohio Staters Buckeyes chalked up
their fourth consecutive victory in
the Conference race by routing Mich-
igan's cagers, 52-39, before the sea-
son's largest crowd of 4,000 fans.
Arnie, Risen, Ohio State's giant
6ft. 8/tin. center, paced the Buckeye
attack by rolling up six field goals
and three free throws for a total of
15 points. The towering center scored
22 points in Friday's game to give
him a grand total of 37 points for the
two-game series.
Slende' Tommy King continued
his scoring barrage, ringing up six
ieh goals for a total of twelve points.
King's 27 points in the first Ohio
gamemakes him high point man for
the two contests with a total of 39
markers. In eight conference games
thus far, King has registered 109
points, which gives him top position
in the Big Ten race for individual
pcoring honors.
Wolverines Start Out Fast
The Wolverines started out at a
rapid tempo and after five minutes
of play the Maize and Blue enjoyed
an 8-2 advantage. Risen and Bob
Bowen then hit for the Bucs, mak-
ing the score 8-5. Two free throws by
Elroy Hirsch, Michigan's fighting
center, and a field goal by Dave
Strack put the local team ahead 12-5.
The Wolverines maintained a five-
point edge until midway in the first
half. With the score 16-11 in favor
of Michigan, the Scarlet and Gray
began pecking away at the Wolverine
lead and finally forged ahead, 18-17,
on a drive-in shot under the basket
by Bill Gunton.
Two charity tosses by Jack Dugger
and a basket by Don Grate gave Ohio
a 21-16 margin. For the next two
minutes the teams played wide-open
ball and the half ended with Ohio
lv.ing 25-22.
Ohio Clinches Victory
Any hopes of a Michigan triumph
quickly faded in the opening minutes
of the second half when Ohio State's
rejuvenated Bucks jumped into a
convincing 36-24 lead. 'Jack Dugger,
the Buckeye 6ft. 4in. forward, was
the sparkplug in this drive as he ac-
tounted for three buckets and one
free throw.
From here on in the game turned
into a complete rout and the Buck-
eyes scored almost at will. The Bucks,
after holding a 50-28 edge, finally
let up, and Michigan, taking advan-
tage of the situation, scored 11 points
in the closing minutes of play.
Michigan will conclude its home
season next -week-end with a pair of
games against, Indiana.
1M Cagers
Continue Play
The Intramural Cage League tour-
nament continued yesterday after-
poon with the third round of compe-
tition giving high scoring honors to
the Naval Officers who, paced by
Herm Hennessy, chalked up a total
score of 132 points against Sigma
Alpha Mu.
In League I play Sigma Chi de-
feated Theta Chi, 28-24, and Phi
Alpha Kappa took The Michigan
Daily, 42-29. Phi Delta Theta Whites
of League II topped Alpha Tau
Omega, 61-28; Nu Sigma Nu lost to
Sigma Alpha Epsilon 55-28, and Phi
Chi routed Acacia, 51-12.
Delta Tau Delta topped Phi Gam-
ma Delta, 65-30 in League III, and
Sigma Alpha Mu bowed to the Naval
Officers, 132-26.

Led by such stalwart regulars as
Heini Kessler and Paul Maloney, the
University of Michigan swimming
team easily downed Purdue's tank-
men, 63-21, in a rather one-sided
encounter yesterday afternoon.
Though the Wolverines were not
pressed in any event except diving,
they proved that they are ready to
give all future opponents quite a
battle. Coach Mann's boys ion and
placed in all of the races, leaving
Purdue with quite a negligible score.
lThe Boilermakers' only victory of the
afternoon, was by Claude Bower, 17-
year-old freshman V-12 transfer,
xwho won the diving event with a fine
Kessler Wins Breaststroke
Heini Kessler won the 200-yard
race with no trouble, as he finished
one lap ahead of his nearest oppon-
ent. His time of 2:37.9 was compara-
tively slow for the event, but since he
was not pressed, he should be able to
do considerably better against keener
-competition. John McCarthy took
the 150-yard backstroke event, close-
ly followed by his teammate, Bill
Purdue's newly - elected captain,
Phil Hansel, was unsuccessful in his
bids for victory in the 440-yard an
220-yard events. In the grueling
quarter-mile race, Paul Maloney fin-
ished 25 yards ahead of his team-
mates, Johnny McCarthy, who was
closely followed by Hansel. Achilles
Pulakus edged out Ace Cory to win
the 220-yard freestyle event for

Larry Koppin of the Wolverine
squad outswam his teammate Bob
Branch to sweep the 50-yard free-
style event for Michigan. The 100-
yard freestyle race was won by Chuck
Fries, who finished immediately in
front of Merton Church. The Purdue
men swain a weak third and fourth
in this race. Both the 300-yard med-
ley relay and the 440-yard relay were
won by the Wolverines. Michigan's
crack relay team of Church, Pulakus,
Cory and Fries easily overcame their
competition and turned in a fine

Varsity Forwards
Lack Fight Sb own
In Earlier Contests
Despite a vicious last-minue drive
which kept the puck slamming
around in enemy territory. Michi-
gan's hockey team was unable to
convert for the necessary tying goal
and was defeated last night 4-3, by
the Vickers Sports club, a Detroit
In the opening minutes of the
game it appeared that the varsity
forward wall had none of the fire
that characterized play in last week's
contest. Streaking down the ice the
Vickers line drew Goalie Dick Mixer
out of the nets and Wilbert Kannen-
en, wing, poured in the initial score,j
at 4:22,
Squad Settles Down
This blast settled the squad and
for the next few minutes the puck
banged back and forth between the
two teams with neither side getting
within shooting distance. Then the
Michigan forward wall took one off
the boards and began a concentrated
drive up-ice, with Greer slipping in
the goal at 14:22. The remainder of
the period was scoreless.
The second period showed equaliz-
ed strength as both teams made un-
successful attempts at long shots.
Neither line could get within shoot-
ing range as defensemen Messinger
and Henderson for Michigan and
Gresnick and Tullpo for Vickers
played cagey hockey, keeping the
puck on center ice.
Five Men Attack
Vickers finally broke all five men
down-ice in a mass attack on the
Michigan goal, but Mixer made a
stellar save which Greer picked up on
the rebound and carried up, passing
swiftly to Jenswold, who flipped, to
Abbey. All three men closed in on
the Vickers goal and after three at-
tempts Jenswold, with assists from
Greer and Abbey pushed the puck
through at 10:32.
Vickers made a quick break-away
immediately and kept the puck on
Michigan ice until Frank Gresnick,
Vickers defenseman, slammed one
across at 17:13.
Lack Punch in Third Period
In the third period Michigan failed
to exhibit any punch. Vickers scored
twice and had control of the puck
throughout the major portion of the
period. It was not until 17:03 that
Herb Upton, substitute wing, took a
pass off the left-hand boards and
made a straight shot that went
through goalie Gordon Belleau's legs.
This ended the scoring for the
game although in the last minutes
Michigan threatened consistently.
Ten seconds before the final gun
coach Eddie Lowrey pulled goalie
Dick Mixer off the ice, and played a
six-man offense, which came close
several times but was unable to get
through the stiffened defense Vick-
er's maintained.

Suffers First Defeat
In their first home match of the
year, the mighty Wolverine wrestling
team toppled Purdue from the un-
defeated ranks yesterday with a bril-
liant 17-9 victory in a nip and tuck
battle, and thereby established them-
{elves as the chief contenders for the
1944 Conference crown.
Bob Reichert put Michigan on the
right side of the ledger with the first
three points of the match, when he
scored a 6-2 decision from Dave Liang
at 121 pounds. Bob Gittins, Michi-
gan 128-pounder, took advantage of
all his inexperienced opponents' er-
rors and registered a 6-1 decision
over Casey Stengal in his first ap-
pearance for the Maize and Blue,
which gave the Wolverines a 6-0
0berly Loses
Lowell Oberly then wrestled his
life-long pal, Dannie Nettesheim, in
the heralded match of the day, and
ie lost a heart-breaking1-0 decision.
Both men were undefeated when they
entered this match, and they gave a
fine performance. It was close all
of the way through and was decided
in the last period when Nettesheim
got an escape and his only point.
There was some doubt as to whether
Oberly should have amassed 4 points
on two near falls which he had in
the first two periods. Those points
could have changed the final score,
and apparently the decision made
was close.
The Wolverines got three more
points when Chip Warrick scored a
decision over Bob Armstrong in the
145-pound division. Warrick got the
first take-down of the match and was
the complete master of his fleet op-
ponent, as he won a clear-cut 6-0

Too lilie, Too Late

I1ICHIGAN'S hockey team had a gamne scheduled for last night with the
Frcntier Blue Banner squad from Buffalo wicti was canceled through
the actions of a Buffalo AAU official who sugct reprisal against the presi-
dent of the Frontier Amateur Hockvy League of which the Blue Banner
team is a nember. This official went so far as to have AAU heads in
New York. Detroit, and Chicago, plague Athletic Direclor Fritz Crisler tvith
calls demanding cancelation of th' contest. These men went to such
measures as to intimate that, dire vesuilts would occur if the lilt were not
Playing in an unsanctioned league was given as the reason for not
allowing the Frontier squad to plav the Wolverine pucksters last night,
but the local AAU official from Btflalo admitted that the team was
Made un entirely of amateurs. When the AAU was approached by the
Blue Banner manager, a former Maire and Blue hockey player, to ask
permission to join the Union, he was flatly refused because of the
grudge held against the president of the Frontier Amateur Hockey
League. Ile was brushed aside with the remark, "Unfortunately you
are the victim of circumstances." These "circumstances" were the
officials' personal feud-nothing else-and he had no legitimate reason
for refusing to allow the members of the Frontier teaim to join the Union.
The University of Michigan has had a great deal of d(iliculty this year
in arranging a hockey schedule, being able to obtain games only with
Canadian teams (some of whom have professionals on tieir roster) and
this one lone game with the Buffalo squad. The American AAU is tied
up with the similar Canadian organization, and so these so-called amateur
teams from across the border are able to play the Wolverines because
they are sanctioned by the Canadian AAU, who are just as inconsistent
as our own. It seems a dirty shame fhat these men should cancel contests
on an already meager Wolverine hockey schedule during the present war-
time emergency. After all, even the Western Conference, which has long
been known for its stringent eligibility rules, has lowered the bars for the
duration, and there is no reason why the AAU couldn't do the same thing--
or at least not allow cheap politicians to interpret the present i'ule.s to suit
FROM the standpoint of the Buffalo team it was a bitter pill to swallow
when they learned of the cancelation. They had been looking
forward to playing the Varsity for over a month, some of them working
overtime to earn money to defray oart of the exenses of the trip. One
member paid half his salary to a substitute so that his absence would
not hamper the war effort. The team even obtained a rink 90 miles
from Buffalo, when a closer one was not, available, so that they might
have a special praetice session in. preparation for the game with
