Field House,
The Wolverine squad will be com-
posed of 41 men, 28 of whom are
Marine and Navy trainees, an will be
one of the largest squads to be used
in recent years. It was announced
that all events will be finals and that
the meet will be over by 8:50 p.m.,
thus enabling interested fans to
catch some of the other contests.
This meet will mark the first time
that the Hume twins, Ross and Bob,
have ever run in the same events all
the way through, both the mile and
the 880. In discussing the twins,
Doherty said, "Bob has showed re-
markable improvement over last sea-
son in practice, and there is no ap-
parent difference between the two so
far this year." Both boys are capable
of runing the mile under,4:20, which
is good time for so early in the sea-'
son.
Two regular members of the squad,
Bob Ufer and Jack Martin, will not
be competing against the Broncos to-
night. Ufer is running the 600-yaxd
dash in the Boston Athletic Associ-
ation's invitational meet, and Mattin,
who placed fifth in the Conference
low hurdles last spring, hA a slight
foot injury, which will keep him on
the sidelines for the evening.

Swimmers Battle NU in M Ien To Face1 Michigan Seeks Fourth Big Ten
Major Conference Meet Hoosiers in Last Victory Against Lowly Maroons

'[cntWeakenecd ijv

By ARTHUR WOOD
Tonighi% battle wll'abe apreview
as to the winner of the Big Ten swim-
ming :meet aid our guess is that
Matt's boys will come through again
for Michigan.
The Wildcats from down North-
western way have met the Maize and
!Blue swimmers earlier in the season
on their liome grounds and went the
-way of defeat, 46-38. 'However, it
seems that they took this loss in
stride and have proceeded to win the
last three of their meets. Mike Peppe,
coach of the Buckeye swimmers, in
commenting on Northwestern's loss to
the Wolverines said, "If the Wildcat
swimmers had not been the victims of
some tough luck they would have
beaten the Maize and Blue natators."
Ohio State's coach seems to have
forgotten that the lement of luck en-
ters into every sporting event, and if'
he comes around to the meet tonight,
he will see that it wasn't luck, but
just too much power on the part
'of' the Maize and Blue swimmers.
The battle tonight is in effect a
"grude fight," not only to avenge the
Wildcats' last defeat, but to decider
the future championship of the Big
Ten swimnners. No other teams in
the Conference even come up to the
standards set by these two teams.
Michigan has beaten Ohio State and
Purdue, but has- lost, two matches to
the swimmers from Great Lakes-
probably the strongest team in the
country. But the psychological ad-
vantage is with the Northwestern
team, as it has won its last three
meets and Michigan swimmers took
a powerful going over from the Great
Lakes group;
When asked about the strength of
the ,Wildcats, Coach Mann said that
-N. U.' was the surprise team of the
year, even with the conditios of the
war, that made most of the teams
start out with hardly anything to
work with in the way of material. It
looks as if young Matt Mann III is

this year and the smooth-rolling at-
tack of the Maize and Blue squad may
be hampered considerably without
the services of these three stalwarts.
Galles and Wilson stayed behind
because of the pressure on their
studies, and they want to be ready
to compete in the Big Ten finals to
be held in Chicago Feb. 19. Bob
Gittins was injured in his last match
and his injury had not mended suf-
ficiently to warrant immediate action.
On the other hand. Indiana, which
has been riddled with injuries all
year, is at their peak now, as most
of their members are back for action.
The Hoosiers will undoubtedly go all
out in an endeavor to upset the high-
ly touted Wolverines, and "it will be
a close meet now that we are short of
regular men," Corky said.
j PROBABLE LINEUPS
MICHIGAN Wts. INDIANA

By DAVE LOEWENBERG ?
Michigan's cage squad will seek its
fourth conference victory of the sea-
son when they meet Chicago's lowly
Maroons at 9 p.m. today in the Uni-
versity of Chicago Field House.
The Maroons have suffered fivej
consecutive setbacks at the hands of
Purdue, Northwestern, Illinois, Ohio
State and Iowa. These five quintets
have amassed a preponderous total
of 480 points against Coach Kyle'
Anderson's boys, which according to
astronomical tabulations, amounts to
96 points a game. Meanwhile, theE
Maroons have managed to score only
154 points in these five tilts, giving
them an average of a little better
than 3 points a game.
DeGraw Is Maroon's Chief Threat j
In their last game against a strong
George Williams College team on
Tuesday, the Windy City quintet lost
a close 75-66 verdict. The losers were
paced by Fred DeGraw, who chalked
up 26 points. DeGraw is the Ma-
roon's chief threat, and in fact, their
only threat, and he will bear plenty'
of close guarding in tonight's fracas.
No changes are anticipated in the
Wolverine starting lineup. Tom King
and Dave Strack will be at forward,
Elroy (Crazy Legs) Hirsch at center,
and Don Lund and John Leddy at
guards.
King Can Improve Position
This is the contest which should
give King an excellent opportunity
to bolster his lead in the individual
scoring race. King's nearest rival is
Dick Ives of Iowa, who trails Michi-
gan's versatile star by only three
points. Ives has registered 134 points
in seven games, which is three less
games than King has played in.
However, Ives will be closely guarded
this week-end as Iowa tangles with
Ohio State's Buckeyes in a crucial
two-game series.
After the Chicago tilt, Michigan
will return home to begin intensive
preparations for the Northwestern

contest. to be played at Northwestern
next Saturday. A victory over the
Wildcats would help to salvage some
of the glory that has eluded Michi-
gan this year.
