With the Western Conference bas-
ketball season ct ri n the last lap,
the University of lowa's surprising
Hawkeyes are on top of the heap
with a record of seven wins against
Since Iowa still must meet its
toughest competition of the season, its
chances of remaining out in front
are problematical. The Hawkeyes
square off against a potent Ohio State
quintet in a two-game series this
week-end, and are also scheduled for
a single tilt with Purdue, holders of
second place, and two contests with
Northwestern't third place crew.
Michigan occupies seventh position
at present with a fair chance to climb
one notch higher provided it can cop
its next two games against Chicago
and Northwestern. Illinois is en-
trenched in sixtli place ahead of the
Wolverines but faces tough competi-
tion for the balance of the campaign.
The individual scoring statistics
show Michigan's Tommy King con-
tinuing .to head the list, closely press-
ed by Dick Ives of Iowa, whose rec-
ord-smashing 43-point performance
against Chicago placed him only three
points behind the Wolverine ace.
King has 137 points while Ives has
134. Since Ives has played three less
games than King, he is in a good
position to finish in front if he can
hold his present blistering pace.
The only other Wolverine in the
top ten is Dave Strack whose 31
pdints over the week-end bolstered
his total to 112, good for the seventh
slot, Center Elroy Hirsch occupies
13th position with 69 markers and is
the only other Michigan cager in the

ALTHOUGH it brings up a memory
which woua loe better off dead, a
letter reached us yesterday which we
think deserves being printed. It
comes from halfway around the
world and illustrates just how much':
interest there is in sports even among
those soldiers on the battlefronts
The topic of the letter is the
Michigan-Notre Dame game last
fall, and it was written by Alfred
Hower, who graduated from Mich-
igan in 1939. At the time this let-
ter was written he was somewhere
in Australia, but there were evi-
dently some Fightin' Irish fans in
the vicinity who took sheer delight
in making life miserable for this
Anyhow, this poem. entitled, oddly
enough, 35-12, expresses his annoy-
ance and bewifderment at the out-
come. It goes:
I was shaken to the core
When I heard that terrible score!
I darn near blew a fuse ,
When I read that shocking news!
Michigan 12, Notre Dame 35-
Oh, how I wished I were not alive!
Now I am completely glum
Atnd demand to know "How Cum?"
Did Notre Dame have it in
For Daley, ex of Minn?
Did something go amiss
With Elroy, ex of Wis?
How come this awful 'blight
On the'record of Paul White?
And where was Wiese that fateful
Was he hurt and couldn't play?
After all, you'll all remember
T'was only last November
That Michigan routed Notre Dame
In a truly glorious, wond'rous game,
And they did it very gaily
Without the aid of Hirsch or Daley!
Now, why couldn't the Big Ten
Whip once again those Irish
I demand to know the reason
For this year's seeming treason
Was it due to Bertelli's barrage
Or to combined Wis-Minn sabotage?
Was it over-confidence
Or a team too immense?
Tell me who and what's to blame
For putting dear old Mich to shame!
For though I'm far beyond Pearl
My heart is still in Ann Arbor
And how I wish and wish and wish
This hadn't happened to my dear old
('Specially since I bet every penny
And am now left without any)

IWolverin~e track farts will get their
first real look at Coach Ken Doher-
ty's 1944 thinclads when they meet
a comparatively strong Western
Michigan team at 7:30 p.m. Satur-
day in the Yost Field House.
The Kalamazoo squad was nosed
out by Notre Dame 62-51, and
showed much power, especially in
the sprints. Dick Radcliffe, Western
Michigan's iron m-an, copped first
place in the 6-yard dash, the 220-
yard dash, second in the high jump
and third in the broad jump. This
means that the Broncos will be fav-
ored in the sprints but will be weak
in the longer distances. Pittman of
Western Michigan turned in the
amazing time of 51.6 in the 440-yard
dash against Notre Dame. and will
be favored in that event, inasmc
as Mel Detwiler, Wolverine quarter-
miler, hasn't done better than 52,1
yet this year.
Michigan will be the odds-on fiv-
orite in the 880-yard run and the
mile, despite the loss of Bob Ufer,
who will be competing in the Boston
Athletic Association's Invitational
Games Saturday night. Bob Hume,
Ross Hume, John Roxborough and
Dick Barnard, who are all stellar
half-milers, will be running for the
Maize and Blue in the 880, while the
Hume twins and Barnard will also
compete in the mile.
Although the Wolverines are the
pre-meet favorites, the Broncos are
expected to provide a busy evening
for Doherty's squad, and will give
him a chance to see just what mater-
ial he possesses this season, It will be
the first actual competition for most
of the squad this season

In Return Tilt
Vickers Sports Club
To Meet Sextet Here
Again Saturday Night
Emphasis is being placed on shoot-
ing this week, as the Michigan
hockey team prepares for Saturday's
return contest with the Vickers
In last week's Paris contest varsity
players had at least fifteen oppor-
tunities to make additional scores,
but in each case the shooting was
either so misdirected or so impotent
that goalie Dick Rutherford had
little difficulty in deflecting the at-
Back-handed Shots Weak
Back-handed shots have been no-
ticeably weak in all the sextet en-
counters. In the Paris game, second
line wing Herb Upton, who was play-
ing far-and-away the best hockey he
has exhibited this year, ran into this
difficulty two different times. He
was only partially checked in both
cases and within easy shooting dis-
tance, but because he was forced to
attempt back-hand shots, was unable
to make either opportunity good.
Against Paris the inept shooting
was not serious, since the squad kept
a good edge throughout the contest.
However, in the last Vickers game,
it was one of the primary causes for
Michigan's 4-3 defeat. It's Vickers
again this week-end and Coach Eddie
Lowrey is not going to let the same
thing occur again if it is possible to
In other respects the squad was
so much better last week that if it is
able to maintain the same standard
of play in Saturday's battle, the out-
come should be a decided Maize and
Blue victory. This is no small if,'
however, since the team seems to be
incapable of maintaining a high rate
of efficiency two weeks in a row. The
last Vickers game was a nip-and-
tuck affair the whole way, and unless
Michigan is playing clever hocley
the Detroit squad may well cash in
again on errors.
Defensive play. has been excellent
for some time. Neither Bob Hender-
son or Tom Messinger have been
guilty of many errors, and have
looked very good at close quarters
around the nets.
