Wrestling Team Points for Conference


Tilt Saturday

Squad Goes to Evanston
Today after Last Drill

Style Stressed in This
Galles, Reichert Have
Michigan's highly-geared wrestling1
team had its last semblance of aI
real practice yesterday, when they
went through their last intensive
workout before embarking for Evan-
ston, where the matmen will make a
strong bid for the Big Ten title to-
The squad will go down to the
Field House and run a few laps before
they leave at 5:30 p.m. today. Coach
Ray Courtright stated that they
would check their weights tonight
when they arrived at Evanston. The,
Conference matches will start at 10
a.m. tomorrow, as all of the matches,
including the semi-finals and finals,
will be run off then.,
Drawings To Be Held
There will be a drawing and the,
two best men in each weight will be
seeded. Then the rest of the names,
are put into a hat and the men will
be paired in that way. There will be
eight starters in each bracket and the
winners here will go into the semi-,
finals. The two victors in the semi-
finals will battle it out for the Big
Ten title in that particular weight.
The Wolverine matmen have not
been working too intensively this'
week, and the main thing that
"Corky" concentrated on was keeping
the boys in shape. However, the:
team has been working on everything,
trping to polish up holds, take-downs
and various pinning combinations.
Galles and Reichert Undefeated,
Although Jim Galles and Bob
Reichert are the only undefeated men
on the team, and the most likely to
register individual crowns, there is no
other man on the squad who has
been beaten more than once, and
many of these individual defeats have
not been by more than one point.
This will balance the team and with
a little luck these same men that were

FOLLANSBEE, W. Va., Feb. 17.-
(P)-To "T" or not to "T" may be-
come a problem eventually for the
new Navy coach, "Swede" Hagberg,
but he made it clear today that the
chances were he'd probably go along
with the same system that put the
middies among the nation's football
topnotchers in 1943.

George Curtis, Chip Warrick and
Lowell Oberly lost heart-breaking de-
cisions by one point. However, each
of these men have rolled up three
victories. John Greene, heavyweight
from Pittsburgh, after garnering two
straight victories, was beaten by two
points in the Minnesota fray. He
came back to win aaginst Indiana.
Wilson To Compete
Hugh Wilson has won two matches
and lost one to Purdue's 165-pound
representative. He did not go to In-
diana last week as he couldn't spare
the time from his studies. All of these
individual scores tell the story of
why the Maize and Blue is a strong
favorite to wrest the Conference
crown from Coach Billy Thom's Hoos-
iers, mainly composed of freshmen,
whose only threat is Johnny Wilson,
Purdue will offer the main threat,
as they were the only team in dual
competition which gave the Wolver-
ines any trouble at all. However,
Illinois is expected to make a strong
showing in the lighter weights with
such men as George DLeong at 128
pounds; George Voorhies, 136-pound-
er; and Bobby Hughes, 145-pound

Ieemen Will
Tangle with
Canadian Outfit
Pointing for its third victory in a
row, and its fifth in eight starts,
Michigan's hockey team will face a
Canadian club from Brantford, Ont.,
Saturday night, completely unham-
pered by injuries or absences in the
line-up for the first time in several
Vince Abbey, right wing, has been
the" main problem for the past two
encounters, as he suffered a knee
injury, which has slowed him down,
and made it painful for him to play.
However, during practice this week
Vince has shown renewed vigor and
apparently is free now from the ef-
fects of the hampering bruise.
Derleth Back in Shape
In last week's game Captain Bob
Derleth, who was also laid up with
a knee injury earlier in the season,
seemed back to top form, and the
tall center should again be in good
shape for Saturday's battle. It may
well be the last game for Bob who
expects to leave in March.
He was a defenseman on the varsity
squad last season, but this year has
captained the squad as a center.
Coach Lowrey converted big Bob to a
front line spot at the beginning of,
the season, and he has proven equally
capable in forward wall maneuvers.
Also, when either of the regular de-
fensemen, Bob Henderson or Tom
Messinger, 4eeds relief, or is called
off the ice on penalties, Derleth sub-
stitutes for them and does a credit-
able job.
Brantford Has Paris Players
The Brantford squad which is com-
ing up Saturday has three player on
it who played here this season on
the Paris, Ont., team. Michigan
pounded Paris and wound up on the
top end of a 6-2 score. However, this
does not mean that Brantford will
be a pushover,
Canadiens Beat Red Wings
DETROIT, Feb. 17.- ()- The
pace - setting Montreal Canadiens
showed who is boss in the National
Hockey League by rallying in the
third period tonight to defeat the
second place Detroit Red Wings 3 to
2 before 13,175 spectators. Maurice
Richard scored all three goals for
Montreal for the hat trick.
The Wings, holders of the famed
Stanley cup who had lost only two
of their last 15 games, seized a 2 to 0
lead in the second period on goals
by Carl Liscombe and Adam Brown.
The first period was scoreless.

Wolverines Favored
To Take All but Four ;

Led by four veterans and a host of
newcomers who have shown a lot oft
promise this year, the Michigan swim-,
mers will invade Patten Gymnasium
tomorrow as favorites to come backI
with the Big Ten title under their
The meet, which is being held in
Evanston for the second straight year,
should be taken by the Wolverines
in a breeze as they are expected to
capture all but four of the events
and are practically conceded second
in three of these. Keo Nakama is,
slated to repeat in the 220 and 440-
events in which he set new Confer-
ence records last year-and is the
only other defending titleholder be-
sides Maize and Blue sprinter Mert
Church in the 50.
Buckeyes Send Two Men
Ohio State is sending only fresh-
man Bob Stone to the meet in addi-
tion to Nakama. It is expected that
Stone will battle it out with North-
western's Ronnie Trumble for top
honors in the diving.
Wildcat Bob Tribble, who is un-
defeated this year, is the favorite in
the backstroke, while Michigan's Bill
Cooley is expected to grab the run-
nerup position. In the breast stroke
it looks like a sure bet for freshman
Heini Kessler of the Varsity.
Freestylers Add Punch
The four lettermen-Church, Ace
Cory, Charlie Fries and John Mc-
Carthy-are all freestylers and it'is
this foursome that gives the Maize
and Blue squad its greatest punch.
Church and Fries are entered in both
sprints, and should grab the first
two places in each event. Both- -are
also key men on the 400-yard relay.
Cory swims on both' relays and in
the 220, although Matt may possibly
save him for just the medley and
freestyle relays. McCarthy is en-
tered in the backstroke and the 440,
and quite conceivably will,' pick up a
third in the quarter-mile behind
teammate Paul Maloney in addition
to third in the dorsal event.
Purdue May
Have To Split
Cage Quintet
CHIGAGO, Feb. 17.-(I)-Pudue
may be forced to split its basketball
squad in order to play at Iowa tomor-
row night and at Wisconsin Saturday
night and still adhere to the Navy
rule prohibiting absence of V-12 stu-
dents from their base for more than
48 hours.
Ward Lambert, who has coached
the Boilermakers into the Big Ten
lead with seven wins and one loss,
pondered transportation problems
today. He was hopeful arrangements
could be made to have the normal
traveling squad available for both
important games which will have a
direct bearing on the title race. If
precise connections can be made on
the roundabout schedule-from La-
fayette to Chicago to Iowa City, then
from Iowa City to Chicago to Madi-
son, Wis.-Lambert will not have to
us reserves for the most part in one
game and regulars in another.
Iowa's hopes of sharing the con-

ference crown rest on the outcome of
tomorrow night's engagement with
Purdue. The Hawk eyes, geared, by
the conference's two leading scorers,
Dave Danner with 157 points, and
Dick Ives with 156, have won seven
games and lost two-taking both de-
feats at Ohio State last week.

Cagers Seek Revenge for
Defeat by Northwestern

With two of his players, forwardI
Wayne Thompson and center Elroy
Hirsch, on the injured list, basketball
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan will take
the Michigan cagers to Evanston to-
morrow for the season's finale
against Northwestern that night.
Thompson suffered an eye injuy
during practice Tuesday, and his
status on the active list for the game
is still in doubt. Hirsch, however,
merely suffered a recurrence of an
old ankle injury which has been
bothering him all season and will be
in shape in time for tomorrow's
Wolverines Seek Fifth Win
The Wolverines will be seeking for
their fifth Conference victory against
Dutch Lonborg's Wildcats, and also
will be gunning for revenge because
of an earlier 57-47 shellacking by the
Northwestern is faced with the
necessity of tripping the Maize and
Blue if it is to remain in the running
for the Big Ten title. The Wildcats
have amassed a record of six wins
and one defeat to date, but must
play the tougher part of their sched-
ule minus the services of almost the
whole varsity squad which will grad-
uate at the end of the semester.
Wildcats Lose Graham
For the contest with Michigan, the
Purple will almost be at full strength,
having lost only their star pivot man
Otto Graham, whose sparkling work
against the Wolverines in the first
seeting between the two teams was
the Wildcat margin of victory. Gra-1
ham, in addition to setting up most
of his - team's plays, was Northwest-
ern's leading scorer with 64 points in
the seven games.
Lanky Nick Vodick will take over
Graham's vacated position at for-
ward and is expected to give a good

account of himself. Vodick was a
rcgular on last year's Northwestern
quintet and has seen a lot of service'
during the current campaign, being
particularly impressive in the Ohio
State game, in which he racked up
16 points to allow his team to squeeze
out a 42-40 triumph.j
Felt Stars at Center
Teaming with Vodick at the ether'
forward spot will be Johnny Ward,
whose 14 points in the first Michigan
game played a major role in the
Wolverine defeat. At center will be
towering George Felt, Eft. 4in. re-
bound artist, who specializes in back-
board work.
Northwestern's two regular guards,
Bernie Schadler and Jerry Carle,
lead the squad in scoring now that
Graham has departed and form the
main offensive threat of the team.
The Michigan lineup is expected to
be the same which has represented
the Wolverines during most of the
season. Tom King and Dave Strack
will get the call at forwards, Elroy
Hirsch at center and John Leddy
and Don Lund at guards.

l ,ONACONING, Md., Feb. 17.---)
Or'ganized baseball and other
sports are war-time necessities which
should lnt be rationed "even if they
have to call uc old fellows back" says
that eminent cx-maestro of the fire-
bell, Roheif Moses (Lefty) Grove.
But the former great hurler with
the Philadelphia Athletics and the
Boston Red Sox doesn't believe the
manpower shortage will become so
desperate that he will be asked to
put away his gun and fishing tackle
and come to the aid of the national

erial just over 38 and under 18 and
enough of the young ones to keep
the game going as long and as far as
99 per cent of our boys over there
want it to go," he asserts.
The erstwhile king of the south-
paws is having himself a whale of a
time in "retirement," running a farm
and a combination bowling alley-bil-
llard parlor.
