umph in 11 games.

lead, then pushed ahead again at 7-6

the net for. five baskets and a free
throw. He was Michigan's top scorer
with 15 points.
Chicago's Fred DeGraw, however,
took high honors, collecting six field
goals and five free tosses while Tom
King, until last night the Confer-
ence's leading scorer, was held to a
meager total of six.

Bob Tribble of Northwestern re-

ance by taking the 150-yard back-
stroke over teammate Dick Neff and
Michigan's Johnny McCarthy. The
Wolverines were paced by freshman
Paul Maloney who, besides winning
the 220, copped the 440-yard mara-
thon. Michigan's 400-yard free style
relay combination of Branch, Kop-
pin, Cory and Pulakus, outclassed the

By their excellent showing last

ference meet next week at Evenston,
Ill. With such stalwarts as Church,
Fries, Maloney and Kessler, the Wol-
verines should bring the Conference
title back to Ann Arbor once more.
