For First
Cage "ill
By HANK MANTHO
The first University of Michigan
basketball session of the current sea-
son took place yesterday at the Ferry
Field gym with only one letterman
and fourteen new candidates on hand
to greet Coach Bennie Oosterbaan.
Dave Strack was the only return-
ing letterman that Coach Oosterbaan
can use as a nucleus for his squad at
the present time. However, he will
have the services of Bob Wiese and
bon Lund after the football cam-
paign has terminated. Both of these
boys are letter winners in football
and basketball and are now cavort-
ing as fullbacks on Coach Fritz Cri-
sler's gridiron powerhouse.
Gibert Is Lost
The recent Navy transfers of Cap-
tain-elect Ralph Gibert, Bob War-
drop, a standout from Western Mich-
igan, and Don McIntosh, a brilliant;
Students interested in trying out
for basketball manager areasked
to, report at the Field House any
afternoon from 3 to 5:30. p.m.
Letters and numeral sweaters are
awarded to students who are ac-
cepted. Hugh D. Miller,
Senior Manager
freshman prospect, brought addedI
worries to the already furrowed
brows of Oosterbaan. However, his
new candidates will give him a few
seasoned hard-wood performers with
which to build around his returning
lettermen. The new candidates in-
cluded Dick Schrider, who won a let-
ter at Ohio State last year; Tom
King and Tom Paton, who transfer-
red from Michigan State; and Chuck
Ketterer, a Michigan man now in
the Marines who won a minor award
last season.
First Game Soon
Coach "Bub" Oosterbaan will be
starting his sixth season as head bas-
ketball coach for Michigan this year.
He announced that the 1943-1944
basketball season will get under way
some time early in December, but as
yet has not scheduled a tentative
starting opponent.
, Coach Oosterbaan is still handi-
capped by limited basketball facili-
ties and can not yet issue an all-out
call for candidates. However, he
urged all persons who feel that they
can make the basketball squad to see
him.

Six Points for Hamberg, But Irish Still Drub

Navy

Hal Hamberg, Navy left halfback and passing star, hurls the ball 15 yards to the waiting arms of a
teammate, Roe Johnston, in the first quarter of the Navy-Notre Dame game at Cleveland. Note Herb,
Colfman, Irish center, trying to halt the ball, also Ben Chase, Navy right guard, and an Irish player stum-
bling in foreground. Notre Dame won, 33 to 6.

Nearly 4,000
Receive PEM
Training Here
In order to get both soldiers and
civilians in the best possible physi-
cal shape, the Physical Education de-
partment has designed a general
PEM conditioning program for the
Army, Navy, and the civilians.
Earl Riskey, director of the IM
Building, announced that approxi-
mately 1350 Sailors and Marines,
1400 Soldiers, and 1100 civilians will
participate in the program. All the
activities for civilians will center
around Waterman gym. The Navy
and the Army will report to the
Sports Building for their assign-
ments..
The schedule to be followed by all
the Army and Navy men, with the
exception of 300 Navy men who have
to take the basic program over again,
is the maintenance program. The ba-
sic program includes such exercise as
calesthenics and the obstacle course.
However, the maintenance program
is much more interesting for the boys
because it includes such sports as
basketball, track, wrestling, boxing,
gymnastics, swimming, handball and
paddleball.
The civilians are divided into
groups according to their ability. This
is determined on the basis of a ser-
ies of tests given by the department.

Major Leagues Draft Fifteen
Minor Stars; Tigers Get Two

CHICAGO, Nov. 1-UP)-Major1
league baseball men sat in on a quiet
draft session at Commissioner Kene-
saw Mountain Landis' office today,
those from eight clubs intoning
"pass" each time their teams' names
were called, and the remaining eight
dipping into the grab bag for 15 play-
ers, five less than were taken last
year.
The New York Giants who finished
a dismal last in the National League
last season, stayed at the selection
business until they had four player
in the fold-their own ex-first base-
man, Phil Weintraub, two second
basemen and a pitcher. The Giants
had first pick because the Philadel-
phia A's, entitled to-that position,
were not represented.
Weintraub Choicest Item
Weintraub who hit .334 and 16
home runs for Toledo of the Ameri-
can Association last season, was con-
sidered one of the choicest items on
the block and was taken by the Gi-
ants on their first turn.
The second selection was Clem
Hausmann who won 4 games and
lost 4 pitching for Kansas City which
finished in a last place tie in the
American Association, and the Bos-
ton Red Sox called his name. Third
choice was Charles Chanz, San Diego

1 pitcher, taken by the Philadelphia

Browns Get Help
In order the St. Louis Browns
claimed Henry Helf, Milwaukee
catcher with a .261 batting average
and nine home runs to his credit in
1943: the BostonsBraves grabbed
Chet Wieczorek, hard-hitting Colum-
bus Red Bird outfielder who hit .328;
third sacker who spent much of the
Detroit took Eddie Mayo, Louisville
1943 season with the Philadelphia
A's and hit only .219; the Chicago
White Sox bid for Edwin Carnett,
.321-hitting outfielder from Seattle;
and the Brooklyn Dodgers drafted
Gil English, Indianapolis third base-
man who hit .322.
The eighth other teams, including
the world champion New York Yan-
kees and their World Series foe, the
St. Louis Cardinals, did not partici-
pate.
Giants Take Three More
Subsequently the Giants took three
more players-Hugh Luby, Oakland
second baseman; George Hausman,
New Orleans second sacker; and
Ewall Pyle, Minneapolis pitcher who
was with Washington part of the
943 season.
The Phillies passed on second
round but the third time took Charles
Letchas, Toronto second baseman.
The Boston Braves called for pitcher
Ira Hutchinson of Rochester, Detroit
added Joe Orengo, St. Paul short-
stop, and the White Sox claimed Al
Epperly of San Fransisco, who won
6 and lost five.
The emphasis was on infielders
and pitchers. Five hurlers were cho-
sen, one first baseman, three second
basemen, two third basemen, and one
shortstop. Wieczorek and Carnett
were the only outfielders drafted and
Hef the lone catcher.
Wolverine Five
Plays Western
Michigan Here
KALAMAZOO, Mich., Nov. 1-(IP)
-Basketball will go on about as
usual at Kalamazoo's two colleges
this winter.
Western Michigan College, helped
by a shipment of Naval trainees, will
be strong again despite the recent
transfer of Harold Gensichen. Wes-
tern opens against Central Michigan
here on Nov. 27 and plays Notre
Dame, Northwestern and Michigan
away on the following Saturdays in
that order.
Kalamazoo College will have an
all-civilian team and will open at
Grand Rapids against Calvin Dec. 2.
Series are also tentatively booked
with Albion and Grand Rapids Jun-
ior College.
Fifteen Teams Still
Remain Undefeated
NEW YORK, Nov. 1-(P)-Army,
Navy, Pennsylvania and Tulsa were
knocked out of football's perfect
group of unbeaten and untied teams
last week.
Notre Dame and Purdue continue
to top the list, now reduced to 15
teams.
The Irish plastered Navy, 33-6,
while Army and Penn eliminated
themselves by fighting to a 13-13
deadlock. Tulsa was tied by South-
western of Texas, 6-6.
The unbeaten, untied teams are
Purdue, Notre Dame, Iowa Seahawks,
Southern California, Randolph Field,

Injury May
Keep Negus
Out of Game
Crisler Must Replace
Top Aces, Pregulman
And Daley, This Week
Michigan's Wolverines resume
their daily work-outs this afternoon
after a Monday holiday, in prepara-
tion for the invasion this coming Sa-
turday of the pass-minded Hoosiers
from Indiana.
Coach Fritz Crisler has a two- fold
problem on his hands; revamping the
line-up and perfecting a defense
against Bob Hoernschemeyer's dead-
ly aerials. The departure of Bill Da-
ley, Captain Paul White, and Merv
Pregulman to other Naval and Ma-
rine training stations brought on the
line-up shifts.
Line-Up Changes
Coach Crisler's plan, however, may
be fairly easily predicted. Taking
Pregulman's spot at tackle will be
Bob Derleth who held a position on
last year's Wolverine squad. In the
backfieldBob Wiese, currently play-
ing blocking back, will switch over to
his old fullback asignment to replace
Daley. Wiese played this position in
1942, being the Wolverine's leading
ground ganer. He was shifted to
blocking back at the beginning of
this season so he and Daley could
work together.
Wink At Quarter
In at quarter will go Jack Wink,
and at the halves probably Elroy
Hirsch and Wally Dryer, all three
Marine trainees who saw action with
the Wisconsin Badgers last year.
However, Earl Maves and Don Lund
will most likely play a great deal at
half and full, respectively, and Joe
Ponsetto and Jim Aliber at quarter.
Another line change may be loom-
ing as a result of Center Fred Negus'
shoulder injury in the Illinois game.
Preparing for any eventuality, Coach
Crisler is grooming End Vince Mroz
for the center spot.
Passes Lead Hoosier Attack
Indiana brings into Ann Arbor an
unpredictable squad which may blos-
som into tough opposition for the
Michigan powerhouse. The Hoosier
attack is spearheaded, of course, by
Hoernschemeyer's passes to ends Pete
Pihos and Frank Torak.
The Indiana passer's record for six
games stands at 49 completions out
of 110 tries for a total of 949 yards.
Add to this his running plays, and
amounts to over 1400 yards, tops in
the nation.
Indiana Defense Best
The Hoosier defense is the best in
the Big Ten. In their conference
games they have given up an average
of 132 yards per contest.
By HARVEY FRANK
Daily Sports Editor
THIS should be the first All-Ameri-
can team picked this year. We
haven't seen all these players in ac-
tion, but in this case that wasn't
necessary. The players weren't picked
on their individual abilities alone, but
each possessed another all-important
characteristic.
A dedication goes with this All-
American team also. We dedicate
it to those two cheery linotypists
in the shop downstairs, Joe Marble
and Ralph Matheson. Both are
semi-practical jokers who spend

most of their time dreaming up
new methods of harassing a night
editor with only seconds to go be-
fore deadline time.
A few of the selections may need
explaining. The two guards didn't
quite measure up to the standards of
the other players, but were the best
at their positions. The backs.of course
stood out much more than the line-
men and were therefore easier to
choose. In fact, after a vote of the
entire sports staff, the halfback from
Indiana was made acting captain.
And one of the players selected was
on a service team, even though those
players are not usually selected on
All-Americans. However, this grid-
der from Great Lakes stood so far
above the other ends that he couldn't
be left off.
After this tremendous buildup we
present this typographical nightmare,
1943's first All-America. (This col-

CONFERENCE STANDINGS

NEW YORK, Nov. 1. - (AP) -Ad-
vance forces of the Army and Notre
Dame football teams, opponents Sat-
urday in the Yankee Stadium, met
today at the weekly luncheon of the
New York grid writers-with the
"game" ending in a tie.
Maj. Woodrow Wilson, chief of the
Army scouts, declared the Irish line
as it played against Navy in Cleve-
land Saturday was the peer of any
college forward wall and the equal
of many in the pro circuit.
Bertelli's Loss Great
He was of the opinion that the
loss of Angelo Bertelli, I-dotting for-
vard passer for the South Bend elev-
en, was not great because of the abil-
ity shown by Johnny Lujack, his re-
placement. Lujack will take over the
quarterback slot against the Cadets,
Bertelli moving to a Marines' training
camp following the conquest of Navy,.
Jack Lavelle, Notre Dame alumnus
and scout for the Frank Leahy board
of strategy at every Army contest
this year, declared that the West
Point tackles, Joseph Stanowicz and
Francis Merritt, were the best in tlhe
land this year and that Casimir Mys-
linski carried on the tradition of
great Cadet centers.
Lujack May Replace
Walter Kennedy, head of the Notre
Dame publicity staff, offered in re-
buttal that Leahy, coach of the Irish,
had said the loss of Bertelli was
'comparable to cutting the heart out
of a man."
"Lujack isn't entirely inexperi-
enced," Kennedy added, "but you will
notice that he was a replacement for
Creighton Miller - at halfback more
than he was for Bertelli at quarter."
He described the 18-year-old youth
as a "good passer, a good runner and
a defensive standout."
Leahy Not Worried
He quoted Leahy in answer to the
statement of Major Wilson that
Notre Dame wasn't worried about
Bertelli's leaving, "otherwise they
would have taken Angelo out of the
Navy game when Notre Dame got a
two-touchdown lead and discovered
what the kid could do. Instead,
Leahy kept Bertelli in there and let
Lujack sit on the bench."
