': ;.; :.
ALTHOUGH we missed up on one game last week, we got five of the games
on the right side of the ledger and that is pretty good figurin' for any
amateur. That leaves me with 10 winners, one loser and no ties for the
season and a percentage of .900, which ain't had considering some of the
major upsets of the year.
OHIO STATE-ILLINOIS-This should easily be the top game of the
week and may develop into one of the best games of the entire season. The
Illini don't have a chance for the Big Ten title now and they will be ready
to gamble a lot in trying for an upset. This will be a battle between
Buddy Young of Illinois and Les Horvath for the Buckeyes. Ohio has the
better line and they are going to use the same defense Michigan used'
on Illinois, but their success won't be able to hold Young down. However,
the Buckeyes will come through after a scare, 26-21.
NAVY-PURDUE-The Boilermakers have bounced back since their
initial defeat by Michigan, and though the Middies are potentially good.
they aren't working as a unit and should get a fair test from Boris Diman-
cheff's hard running. This will be Navy's last game before meeting Army
and they should come through in another tough battle, 19-6.
WISCONSIN-MICHIGAN-Although the Wolverines are due for a
slight let-down, they are fully aware of the significance of this game and
they will be playing heads-up ball. Wisconsin will be all hopped up and
they will have an added initiative to win, but they have also lost the ser-
vices of Earl (Jug) Girard, great freshman back. This will be a much
tougher battle than most fans suppose, but we'll stick to:Michigan, 27-6.
NOTRE DAME-NORTHWESTERN-The Irish have witnessed some
rough going and they have many players injured as a result. The Wildcats
have not beaten Notre Dame since 1940, and though neither of the teams
are sensational this year, the luck of the Irish should carry them through
IOWA PRE-FLIGHT-MISSOURI--The Seahawks got a bad start
when they lost their opener, but they have been going along smoothly
and have topped some of the best teams in the country. They are still
in the rating for the best service team in the nation and the men from
Missouri won't hamper their status-it's Iowa, 34-0.
ARMY-PENN-Army will hit with such suddenness and fury that will
amaze staunch rooters of Philadelphia. The score could go fairly high
if the Cadets poured on the power, but we'll say Army, 40-0.
MINNESOTA-IOWA-The Gophers came into their own last week
when they upset the Hoosiers and a victory today would elevate them
to the upper part of the Conference :standings. The Hawkeyes will finish
their season with this game, but that is the only attention they will receive.
Minnesota 21, Iowa 0.
INDIANA-PITTSBURGH-It would be a shame if Coach Bo McMillin's
Hoosiers lost this one, too, but that is hardly possible. Pitt might have
had a fighting chance at the beginning of the year, but they are too
weary from so many beatings right now. Indiana 41, Pittsburg 6.
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-CALIFORNIA-This will mean a bid to
the Rose Bowl for the Trojans if they come through and most experts are
picking them by a close margin. However, I think California will be geared
for an upset, so we'll pick them, 19-14.
MISSISSIPPI STATE-ALABAMA-This will be another tough game to
pick and it will be much tougher on the field of battle. However, the ladsI
from Mississippi will spring a surprise on the Crimson Tide, 12-7.

ducting races at the Grounds, Judge1
Miller termed horse racing "a 'suck-
er game' in which the state invites'
its people to take part in order, that
they may be fleeced."
The suit was filed by Edward J.
Rohan and his wife, Josephine, who
own property within 50 feet of the
proposed site of a new wooden horse
barn. It contended that the races
constituted a "private and public
nuisance" and that the new barn
would result in a crowd of "hangers-
on, touts and other persons who make
their living by their ingenuity."
In his ruling, which paves the way
for issuance of a permanent injunc-
tion against racing, Judge Miller de-
nied a motion of the defendants for
dismissal of the complaint, and then
held the horse racing act of 1933 to
be unconstitutional. Ben. H. Cole,
Assistant Attorney-General repre-
senting the Racing Commission, stat-
,ed his intention to appeal the ruling
to the State Supreme Court as soon
as the injunction issues.
Judge Miller stated that there is
a constitutional prohibition of lotter-
ies in the state, and said that under
a "sensible, construction" of the word
lottery, "the people of the state of
Michigan intended to see to it that
the legislature should never permit
gambling enterprises in this state
whose outcome depended on the op-
eration of chance."
According to this interpretation, he
continued, "the state of Michigan is
itself engaged in criminal operations,
except for the effect of the 1933 _act,
and I here hold that that act is

defeated Willie Hoppe, world three-

in 42 innings in tonight's block of
their 1,500-point challenge series for
the world's title.
Under rules of championship
match play, which require play to
continue until 850 points are reached,
Hoppe counted a billiard to hold
Cochran even, 50 to 50, and thus held
the four-point margin he gained by
winning the afternoon block, 50 to
46, in 39 innings.
Hoppe has piled up 850 points to

Morrie Bikoff Will
Play for Wolverines
By MARY LU HEATH
With the season's opener against
the Romulus Air Base less than a
week away, Assistant Basketbal]
Coach Bill Barclay yesterday named
the probable starting lineup for the
contest with the Flyers and con-
firmed reports that Morrie Bikoff
letterman on the Wolverine cage
squad two years ago who was recent-
ly released from the Army, will play
for Michigan again this season.
Barclay, who has been fairly sure
of three of his five starters and has
.been looking for a center and guard
announced that his search is tenta-
tively over and that he has found the
two men necessary to complete the
combination, which has so far con-
sisted of sharp-shooting forwards
Ted Berce and Keith Harder, ex-
University of Virginia star, with Dor
Lindquist at a guard position.
Kell, Mullaney Chosen
In filling the remaining two posts
Barclay has chosen Walt Kell, a V-1
trainee who will be playing for Mich-
igan for the first time. This will no
be Kell's initial outing for a Wol-
verine squad, however, because the
slight Navyman was an alternate
third-sacker on last spring's cham-
pionship baseball team.
John Mullaney, a civilian, will fil
the center position, although he wa
earlier considered for a guard berth
When Barclay found that he was no
well-stocked with center candidates
he-shifted Mullaney to that positior
in a seemingly successful attempt t
remedy the situation.
Bikoff at Practice
It is too early to estimate the par
Bikoff will play in the 1944-45 Wol.
verine cage plans, because he ha
only been practicing with the squac
for a few days. During the '42 cam-
paign the tiny guard was a decide
asset to the cagers, with his speedy
colorful play and flashy ball-hand.
Meanwhile, the squad looked t
the Romulus clash with somethin
less than anticipation. The Air Base
cagers are an extremely big team
with the average height being ap
proximately 6'2" or 6,'. The start-
ing roster includes .Bob Grisen wh(
played for the Wolverines four or fiv
years ago in the forward slot.
Big Romulus Outfit
Another member of the Romulu
team who is probably familiar t
cage fans in the state is Chuc
Smith, ace Central Michigan guar
three years ago. His teammates wil
