Undefeated Wolverines Expected
To Win Title over Northwestern
Wrestlers Are Favored
To Take Championship
By JIM LEWY
All Conference schools will have a
chance to make their bids for the
Big Ten swimming championship
for 1944 in the Northwestern pool on
Michigan's Wolverines will have
the best chance to take the title,
their 14th in 18 years. With two
of the country's best freestylers in
Mert Church and Charlie Fries plus
a fine all-around team, Matt Mann's
charges will be the logical favorites
to capture the crown from their op-
Northwestern and Purdue are ex-
pected to place second and third, res-
pectively, in view of their past sea-
son's record. The Wildcats lost to
the Maize and Blue twice, but by
comparatively close scores. The Boil-
ermakers also lost to the Wolverines,
and possess an inexperienced team
composed largely of V-12 transfers.
Nakama Favored in 220, 440
Keo Nakama, standout of Ohio
State's yearling bunch, is expected
to take the 220 and 440-yard swims
with close competition from Wolver-
ine national AAU outdoor-champ
Paul Maloney. Achilles Pulakus may
also pick some points up for Michi-
gan in the 220-yard event.

in the same event in Evanston.
Wolverines Expected To Win
Michigan entries are favored to
win at least four of the nine events
that make up the meet, and to place
heavily in all races in the matter of
seconds, thirds and fourths. By the
stellar performances of Church, who
won the 50-yard championship last
year, and Chuck Fries, who paced
Church all season, the Wolverines
should take a first and second place
in both the 50 and 100-yard free style
Expected to provide Michigan and
Northwestern with stiff opposition

phers of Minnesota and mermen from
Iowa University who have given all
opponents good fights this year. In-
dividual honors will be contested by
Purdue's Capt. Phil Hansel and Iowa's
The Wolverines will enter the na-
tional collegiates at Yale March 23
and 24 and the national AAU cham-
pionships in Ann Arbor on the fol-
lowing week-end. As usual Coach
Mann will be expecting big things of
"his boys" in these following meets.
Possibilities are that if Michigan's
hockey squad remains intact at the
beginning of the second semester,
Coach Eddie Lowrey will schedule
some additional games with teams
who have wanted a chance to meet
the Maize and Blue outfit.
Lowrey has had several calls from
Ontario teams that would like to
take on the varsity squad, and since
there seems to be a constant im-
provement in the quality of Wolver-
ine play, Lowrey is perfectly willing
to give the boys additional oppor-
tunities to prove their skill. How-
ever, whether the plans will be car-
ried out or not, depends entirely on
what portion of the squad remains
after final Navy and Marine orders
have come through.
The status of Navy men on the
squad, which includes defensemen
Bob Henderson and Tom Messinger
and linesmen Ted Greer, Jack Ath-
ens, John Jenswold, Gordon Ander-.
son and Phil Breitmeyer, will not be
fully ascertained until after final
examinations are over, so Lowrey is
not making any extensive plans until

the team is still available second

will have ample runner-up men to

Show Promise of Fine Year
By BILL LAMBERT
Bob Hume, captain of the 1944
track squad and most improved man
on the team; Ross Hume, 1943 hold-
er of the Conference indoor mile title
-put these two elements of speed
together, and you have, as Coach
Ken Doherty puts it, "The best pair
of mile prospects in Michigan track
The Hume twins, who are fast
gaining fame for their dual achieve-
ments on the cinder-path, are com-
peting in their second season of col-
legiate competition, and already show.
that they are capable of setting some
new records--preferably shoulder to
shoulder. Their practice time trials
this year indicate that if nothing
unforeseen happens, they should run
to victory in both the Conference in-
door and outdoor mile run.
Feat Would Be Unique
If the two can achieve this goal of
"dead heating" the mile, it will mark
the first time in track history such
a feat has been turned in. This sys-
tem of working together and pacing
each other requires constant practice
and the utmost of teamwork. H. Les-
lie Carroll holds the Michigan outdoor
mile record of 4:16.4 which both Bob
and Ross are hoping to lower before
the season ends. They have not
reached their peak of conditioning
yet, and as a result may not be able
to break the indoor record.
Of the two, Coach Doherty says
Bob has shown marked improvement
over his performance of a year ago.
Ross has been hampered somewhat
this season by a throat ailment which
his forced him to miss practice on
several occasions, and as a result, Bob
is in slightly better condition.
Twins Are Pre-Med
The Humes, who are 21, are both
pre-medical students in the Univer-
sity and both are in the Army en-
listed reserve. At Canonsburg, Pa.,
they were mainstays of their high
school track team and then prepped a
year at Shadyside Academy before
entering Michigan in 1941.
The twins are not content with
running the mile, but are both highly-
rated in the 880-yard run. The suc-
cess of Michigan's two-mile relay
team last year in winning seven
straight and capturing the Millrose
title in the first outing this season,
has been in large part due to the
Hume twins who are stellar perform-
ers in this qiartet.
King Places Fifth in Scoring Race
Michigan's basketball team found
itself in sixth place in the Western
Conference standings after the week-
end play, having displaced Illinois
from that spot by virtue of walking
over Chicago while Northwestern
was handing the Illini their fifth.
The Wolverines are now solidly
entrenched at the head of the second
division, but prospects of remaining
there hinge very largly on the final
tilt with Northwestern Saturday. Illi-
nois, with five contests still on the
card, figures to win two and lose
three of these remaining games and
would thus finish with an identical
record to Michigan's provided of
course that the Maize and Blue can
trip the Wildcats.
Dave Danner of Iowa took over the
individual scoring lead with 157
points, followed closely by teammate
Dick Ives, who lags one point behind.
