Michigan's mighty Wolverines rout-
ed Coach Billy Thorn's Indiana mat-
men Saturday, 23-3, to chalk up their
fourth successive victory of the year
and finish the season undefeated in
four dual meets, enhancing their
chances to cop their first Conference
crown since 1938.

As the score 93-11 indicates, the
Michigan track squad put on a spark-
ling display of power and versatility
when they overpowered Western
Michigan Saturday night.
1t was not so much the lop-sided
score which impressed Wolverine
fan1s as it was the individual per-
formances the boys turned in. Not
only did Elmer Swanson and Bob
Gardner snare ten and nine points
respectively, but both turned in
amazing showings for so early in the
season. Gardner's heave of 45'64"
was the best he has done in actual

The sprints showed that Michigan
has much potential power in the
shorter distances, with Bruce Blan-
chard, in his first intercollegiate
start getting to the wire in :6.4 in
the 60-yard dash. He just nosed out
teammate Bob Nussbaumer who also
turned an approximate :7.7 when he

The Hume twins, Ross and Bob,
ran true to form in taking the mile

Dale climbed skyward with the best
form they have yet shown in the pits.
Segula, in reaching 13'1.", went one

Irish Are Trrugh
With this many stelar exhibitions
shown by the thinclads in their first
meet of 1944, the chances for a
championship appear to be shaping
up. Coach Doherty's charges will be
faced with a tougher assignment this
Saturday, when they encounter a
promisnig Notre Dame team in the
Yost Field House.
In their first meet, however, the

1943 Big Ten champs, even though
three regulars, Jim Galles, Hugh Wil-
son and Bob Gittens, were absent
from the line-up. The Wolverines
won six matches, lost one and gained
one forfeit.
George McIntyre, substituting for
Hugh Wilson, was beaten 4-3 in his
first appearance this year, but his
performance was beyond reproach,
and with a little more luck, he could
have won his first bout.
Allen Returns
Bob Allen, holdover letterman, who
hurt his knee at the beginning of this
campaign, returned to action at 165
pounds and won his match on a fall,
while John King took over Jim Galles'
duties in the 175 pound bracket and
got a forfeit when his man was over-
weight. However, King then spotted
his man'ten pounds and still won the
decision from him.
It seems that Indiana's grapplers
were not the only ones out after the
scalp of the undefeated Maize and
Blue squad, as the students were also
"blood thirsty," and gave the Wol-
verines a very poor reception, boo-
ing every movement made by Michi-
gan, as well as many other unsports-
manlike actions.
Courtright Pleased
"This year's team has looked very
impressive and contrary to the
thoughts of a lot of people that we
were loaded, we went through the sea-
son with four sophomores, one re-
serve, one transfer student and two
lettermen," stated Corky. However,
Michigan has rolled aside every op-
ponent by wide margins, beating Pur-
due, chief threat to the Wolverine
title hopes this year, 17-9; Ohio State,
24-6; Minnesato, 25-3; and Indiana
23-3, thereby establishing themselves
as the favorites to dethron Indiana

Two of Michigan's wrestlers, Bob
Reichert at 121 pounds and Jim
Galles at 175 pounds, former Canter-
ence champ at this weight, are both
undefeated to date, and will make a
strong bid for individual titles in the
finals. Galles is a seasoned veteran,
but Reichert never wrestled before
coming under the tutelage of Coach
Courtright this year.
Squad Eyes Title
"We have our fingers crossed and
our eye on the championship, but
there can be many slips and the boys
aren't taking anything for granted,
but will come down and work out ev-
ery day this week," Corky added.
If the Maize and Blue team should

only six points against Chicago, giv-
ing him a season total of 143 points
in eleven Conference games. How-
ever, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan re-
marked "that King, in essence, is a
tean player and is not interested in
boosting his scoring record."
