Wolverines Nip Hoosiers
In Final Minutes of Play
Strack Paces Maize and Blue with 19 Points ;
Retherford, Brandenburg Shine for Hoosiers

By BILL MULLENDORE
In a hard-fought but loosely-play-
ed contest Michigan's basketball
team came from behind in the last
three minutes of play last night to
barely ease out an inspired Indiana
quiitet 46-44 and annex their third
Big Ten victory.
It was the second win in as many
nights over the Hoosiers for Coach
Bennie. Oosterbaan's charges, but
they did not have an easy time of it
as they did Friday night. Indiana
Coach Harry Good devised a new
and effective defense which threat-
ened to stop the Wolverine attack
cold early in the game.
After trading baskets for the first
few minutes, the Hoosiers opened up
a small lead and managed to cling to
it until the end of the half. Big gun
in their attack was forward Claude
Retherford who gave as fine an ex-
hibition of back-court shooting as
has been seen here all season.
Michigan Fails To Click
Michigan's offense during the first
stanza was not clicking as it failed
to capitalize on many scoring oppor-
tunities by missing easy shots and
throwing the ball away. Maize and
Blue forward Dave Strack kept the
Wolverines in the game by gathering
nine points in the half. Despite his
efforts the Hoosiers enjoyed a 25-22
lead at the mid-point.
The second period was much the
same as the first with Indiana stav-
ing off repeated Wolverine threats,
Good's charges boasted a comfort-
able six point 41-47 lead, but the
Michigan team finally pulled itself

together. Rex Wells, whose fine play
as a substitute for Elroy Hirsch at
center was one of the main factors
in the Wolverine triumph, and
Strack caged quick field goals to
close the gap to two points, and Wells
added a free throw to cut it to*'one.
Wolverines Take Lead
Tommy King, held in check all
evening by the fine defensive work of
Hoosier guard Ed Brandenburg, came
through with a timely two-pointer
which gave Michigan the lead. In-
diana tied it up with a free-throw
by Brandenburg, but !charity tosses
by Strack and Leddy gave the l Wol-
verines the lead and victory.

Mert Church
Takes Firsts in
Freestyle Events
By BUD LOW
Michigan's swimming team came
one step closer to regaining the Con-
ference crown they lost to Ohio State
last year by defeating the Buckeyes,
57-26, in a dual meet yesterday.
In absorbing one of their worst
defeats in recent years, the weakened
Scarlet and Gray squad could do no
better than garner three first places
-two by their sensational Hawaiian
star, Captain Keo Nakama, and one
by diver Bob Stone. Nakama's exhi-
bition yesterday was short of former
teammate Bill Smith's performance
of two weeks ago, but it was good
enough to prove to everyone present
that he will have little trouble in
capturing the 220 and 440 in the Big
Ten meet at Evanston two weeks
hence.
Nakama Wins
Little Keo took the 220 in a breeze
as he finished ten yards ahead of
Wolverines Gordon P ul f o r d and
Charlie Fries. His time, 2:13.2, was
almost six seconds slower than
Smith's record breaking time of two
weeks ago. In the 440, the Buckeye
ace found tougher going. There was
a scant bit of open water between
Nakama and Michigan's Paul Malo-
ney as the winning time was 4:59.1,
way off Keo's best.
s Coach Mike Peppe of Ohio State
showed he can still produce fine div-
ers as Buckeye Bob Stone gave a
superb exhibition on the board to
take the event by a tremendous mar-
gin. Since there were only two men
entered, John Krygoski of the varsity
automatically took second.
Four of the swimming events were
cut down so as to make the races
closer. Mert Church won the 50 in
:23.8, closely followed by teammate
Bob Branch with Jim. Boone coming
in third. Church, Big Ten champion
in the 50-yard freestyle, also took
the century in :53.1. Ace Cory fin-
ished second, while Boone again
copped a third.
Wolverines Win Relays
The Wolverines captured both re-
lays, which were cut in half, as Ohio
came in a poor second. Michigan
made it a clean sweep of six of the
nine events as they grabbed first and
second in the 100-yard breaststroke
and in the 100-yard backstroke.
Heini Kessler and Steve Rubach fin-
ished one, two in the breaststroke,
while Bill Cooley and John McCar-
thy.did the same in the dorsal event.
Next week the Maize and Blue nat-
ators play host to Northwestern. They
defeated the Wildcats at Evanston
two weeks ago by taking the last two
events to win, 46-38.

Bob Reichert

PFace Victory
Jim Galles Maintains
Perfect Record; Capt.
Johnny Greene Loses
By HANK MANTHO
Michigan's power-laden wrestling
team, registered its third successive
win of the season yesterday at the
Yost Field House against a gallant
but undermanned squad from Minne-
sota, 25-3, and thereby established
themselves more firmly as the Con-
ference favorites.
Bob Reichert got the Wolverines
off to a flying start as he scored a
fall over Wingard at 121 pounds in
7:14, giving Michigan a 5-0 lead. This
match started out slowly, but Reich-
ert kept pushing his man, working
calmly, until he scored his fall.
Bob Gittins and Lowell Oberly then
scored successive decisions over their'
opponents in the 128 and 136 pound

Hocke Team Downs Paris Club, 6-2

Greer Scores Four
Goals During Rout
Michigan's hockey team hit the .500
mark last night, walloping Paris, Ont.,
6-2 for its third victory in six starts.
Scoring star for the evening was
wiry Ted Greer, who accounted for
four goals, but the unofficial star was
freshman second line wing, Herb Up-
ton, who played a game of hockey
which far surpassed anything he has
exhibited yet.
The first period was not marred
by scoring from either side. A fast,
quick passing style was employed by
both teams, and the strict defensive
play on both sides kept the puck
ramming around on center ice.
Fun Begins on Second Period
Fireworks began in the second
minute of the second period, and con-
tinued unleashed for the next eight
minutes, during which time Michigan
made five of its total of six markers.

puck on Michigan ice for almost the
first time during the period. How-
ever, Captain Bob Derleth cleared out
of the group and made a solo dash
down-ice which resulted in another
goal at the end of exactly ten min-
utes of the period.
Dutchburn Tallies for Paris
The next score was made by Don
Dutchburn, Paris center, who took

Gittins won his match from Peter
Perkins of Minnesota, 7-2, while,
Oberly blanked Wayne Brock, 6-0.;
Warrick Wins Exciting Match
Leonard Shroeder, Minnesota's 145-
pounder, almost battled Chip Warrick1
to a standstill in an exciting match,1
which Chip pulled out of the fire,1
8-6, on his riding time alone. Shroe-1
der got the first two points on a take-i
down, but the lead in points changed
hands miany times during the course
of the battle before Warrick eeked
out a well-deserved victory.;
' Wolverine 155 - pounder, George
Curtis; then got back to his winning
ways with a fall over Gopher Dick
Nelson in 1:26 of the second period.
Nelson got the first take-down for
two points, but Curtis tied him with
a reversal and it was his match from
there on. After Curtis scored his
fall, they still had to wrestle the
third period, but the only way that
Nelson could have won, was to have
pinned Curtis in less time than he
was pinned. However, Curtis pinned
his man for good measure in the
third peniod, and added five more
points to the Maize and Blue column.
In the 165-pound event, Ivan Do-
seff of Minnesota provided fans with
a few thrills as he met Hugh Wilson.
Doseff came out to the center of the
mat fast and resembled a wild man
as he went after Wilson. There was
plenty of action in this match and
the boys were in many neutral posi-
tions before Hugh got the first take-
down, and from there, Wilson began
to compile his total of eight points
againstnone for his opponent.
Galles Takes Exciting Match
Jim Galles, former 175-pound Con-
ference champion for Michigan, won
an easy 12-3 decision from Roddy
Lister of Minnesota, which was the
last score of the day, for the Wolver-
ines.
Verne Gagne then defeated Captain
Johnny Greene in the heavyweight
tilt, 3-1, for the first and only three
points that the Gophers got in the
match.
