Harder Leads Cagers in,.
Scoring with 39 Points


As far as Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan and the 1945 cagers are con-
cerned, the state of Virginia has
produced a much more valuable prod-
uct than that now-elusive weed
named, in its. raw state, tobacco.
This invaluable product is iden-
tified in athletic circles as Harder,
Keith,;and sleeps and does a good
deal of work for Uncle Sam's V-12
unit at the West Quad. Most of
his afternoon hours, however, are
spent on the basketball court of
the Field House. To be specific,
Harder is one of the two starting
forwards on Coach Oosterbaan's
five times victorious quintet.
Not only has the lanky, 6' 3" cager
started every game, but he is cur-
rently leading the Wolverines in
scoring honors with a neat 39-point
total, which is a little better than
seven points per game. His closest
rival is guard Don Lindquist, whose
two 12-point nights helped to give
him 34 markers.
Harder's total received a mighty
bost last week when his 19 points
helped guide the Wolverines to a
46-34 win over Western Michigan, a
team which the Maize and Blue will
again face tonight in the Field House.
From all reports, another Harder
scoring splurge will come in handy
at this evening's fracas.

In the field of vital statistics, it
is revealed that Harder has "got-
ten around." Born in Fairfield,
Iowa,r189years ago, he traversed
the nation to Washington, D.C.,
via Chattanooga, before the Navy
stationed him at the University of

Virginia, where he played regular
forward for the cage quintet.
During his sophomore and junior
years at Redbank High, in Chat-
tanooga, he was elected to his dis-
trict's All-Tournament team. At
McKinley High, in the nation's capi-
tal, he showed so well on the basket-
ball team that he was selected to
receive the annual Best Player award
for the entire city.
By the time he reached Virginia,
he had developed to such an extent
that he scored 226 points in his
only season there, to be the highest
scorer in the state. He was trans-
ferred to the University last sum-
mer, in order that he might get
additional courses in his major,
aeronautical engineering.
If Lindquist, forward Ted Berce,
and guard Walter Kell expect to
catch Harder in the individual scor-
ing race, they will certainly have to
hustle, because of all the things
which the Virginian will want to do
this season, topping his old 226-point
mark, will be his major objective.
Fifth Army
Leads Boxing
Africa, Adriatic Are
Two Dangerous Threats
ROME, Dec. 14-(P)-The Fifth
Army's defending championship team
put two more men into the finals of
the second annual Mediterranean in-
terallied boxing tournament this aft-
ernoon to boost its total to six final-
ists and to take a commanding lead
over the North African and Adriatic
zone squads, which loom as the chief
Cpl. Leroy Jeffrey of Kansas City
and Corp. Melvin Pullen of Dayton,

afternoon session, joining Pvt. Ezzard
Charles, Cincinnati professional mid-
dleweight, Pvt. Milton Glass of Ak-
ron, 0., Sgt. Adolph Labrecoue of
Holyoke, Mass., and Pvt. Adolph Bar-
low of Philadelphia.
Jeffrey, a long, lean M. P., came Off
the floor after suffering a first-round
knockdown to outpoint Harold Sam-
mis, New York sailor, in thelamateur
light heavyweight semi-finals. Pul-
len, an amateur bantam-weight, be-
came the first boxer in the tourna-
ment to chalk up two knockouts when
he flattened Pvt. Claude McLaughlin
of Rockville center, Long Island. Mc-
Laughlin was hurried down from the
fighting front to compete in the
tournament after being located in a
line outfit and appeared to be out
of condition as a result.
Chicago Hoopsters
Are Looing Better
CHICAGO-1P )--Things are look-
ing up on the basketball court at the
University of Chicago this season.
The Maroons, not competing in the
Western Conference after more than
40 consecutive league losses in the
last two years, have a .566 rating.
They beat Fort Sheridan Thursday,
34 to 2-, for their fifth victory
against four defeats. They have
scheduled games this season with
smaller colleges and service teams.

Current Season
Is Inaugurated
By Swim Gala
Captain Church, Fries
Kessler, To Lead Squad
In Championship Tries:
Michigan's stellar mermen are all
set to exhibit their prowess in the an-
nual Swim Gala to be held Saturday
night at the Varsity Pool in the
Sports Building.
Led by Captain Mert Church,
Chuck Fries and Heinie Kessler, the
powerful Wolverine squad is expected
to capture many winning berths in
the Michigan AAU competition.
Stars To Take Honors
Other Maize and Blue stalwarts,
namely Charlie Higgins, Gordon Pul-
ford, Bob Munson, Jack Zimmerman,
Don Drake, Jack Bridges, Jerry Baily,
Jack Fulkman, Harry Westerburg,
Ralph Chubb, and Frank Anderson
are exhibiting promising , form in
practice, and it is believed that many
of them will run off with champion-
ship honors.
Michigan spectators will be watch-
ing especially Captain Mert Church
and Heinie Kessler. Church, Big Ten
50-yard champion, and lead-off man
in the 200-yard relay event, is re-
ported as being in top condition this
season. Coach Matt Mann expects
Mert to churn his way to a new Big
Ten record, and is hoping that this
great Wolverine tankman will cap-
ture the National AAU 50-yard title
later in the season.
Kessler To Be Victorious
Heinie Kessler, Sophomore breast
stroke star and Big Ten champion in
that event, is counted on to overcome
easily all opposition and to speed to
victory in record time.
Attention will be focused on Bill
Lopez and Carl Agrieste who will rep-
resent Michigan in the fancy diving
competition. The squad was hit bad-
ly by the loss of Bill Dugan, a Navy
boy, who was counted on to star for
the Wolverines in this season's
spring-board events. It is hoped that
Lopez and Agrieste can fill the gap
left, by this former Maize and Blue
Golfers Start
72-Hole Open
RICHMOND, Calif.-(/P)- Golf-
dom's players for pay, augmented by
amateurs, moved into this war-boom-
ing shipyard city today for the start
of the first Richmond $7,500 72-hole
open golf tournament.
The new event added to the winter
open tournament trail will be played
over the 6,209-yard-long Richmond
course with a par of 36-35-71. The
course fronts on part of San Fran-
cisco Bay.
Favorites in the chase for war bond
prizes were Sam Snead, winner of
the Portland Open; Byron Nelson,
winner of the San Francisco Open,
and Sgt. Jim Ferrier, of Camp Rob-
erts, Calif., winner of the Oakland

Clem Bauman, who held down
the right tackle position will be
competing, as will his teammates
George Burg, center John Lintol,
Jim Artley, and John Babyak. Bob
Grandy, who was working out with
the team last year, also will be one
of the contestants.
All of these men are new additions
to the squad which is typical of
all the members this year. In all
other departments except the dis-
tances, there are only a few return-
ing letter-winners who are endeavor-
ing to hold down the positions they
won last year, the result being that
it is a wide open race as far as var-
sity spots are concerned.
The Wolverines have always been
noted for their famous weight-
tossers, and each year some shot-
putter has made a name for him-
self in this event. Some of the
stars in this department have been,
Bill Watson, who threw the shot
54 ft., 6% in., Johnny Townsend,
who reached 50 ft., Bob Hook who
also hit 50 ft. or better, and last
year George Kraeger, who hovered
around the 49 ft. mark. With all
the burly candidates who are
seeking a position on the squad,
Coach Ken Doherty should surely
come up with another such a per-
former, which would in turn guar-
antee points so sorely needed in
close meets.
Tonight's program will get under-
way promptly at 7:30, and will in-
clude all the events on a regular meet
except the two-mile run. Pre-meet
dope has the Servicemen classed as
favorites, because of their numbers,

Intram-Squad Track Meet
Gets Under Wa Toniht
Main Event Will Feature Five Football Stars
In Servicemen Versus Civilian Competition
From the gridiron to the cinderpaths-this will be the case tonight,
when five of Coach Fritz Crisler's footballers compete in the intra-squad
track meet which will get under way at 7:30 p. m. in the Yost Field House.
In this, the first actual competition for the 1944-45 squad, which feat-
ures the Servicemen versus the Civilian element of the team, five men
who played varsity football will be tossing the shot, in an effort to see who
will make good in the weight-throwing department.

but the civilian's quality insures fans
of a photo finish score.
The distance events will be in-
teresting from the standpoint of
seeing the newcomers to the squad
challenge last year's milers and
half-milers. So far, in the time
trials, the times have been on par,
and it remains to be seen who will
grab the money positions.

been inducted into the army and navy
since the end of the 1944 season as
have been discharged but club own-
ers today look ahead with confidence'
to another campaign and a rosy post-
war future.
The trickle of returning servicemen
has yielded Van Mungoof the Giants.
Mickey Livingston and Harry "Pea-
nuts" Lowrey of the Cubs and Les]
Mueller and Al Benton of the Tigers.t
Dick Wakefield, who slugged the1
Tigers to within an eyelash of the

Bill Seinsoth of the Browns, Jim Ta-

and Bob Malloy of the Reds among,
the better known.
Although increased drafting of the
26-37 age group and reviews of well-
known servicemen before discharge
are expected to tighten the manpower
situation, the leagues have made pro-
visions for taking care of the army

of national defense list players when
and if they come back.
The American League has 239 men
in the service and the National 231
but the minors with 3406 on their de-
fense lists present the big problem.
Just for example, the latest list shows
Toledo of the American Association
with 144 on the NDS list, Hartford,
Conn. of the Eastern League with 115
and Lynchburg, Va. of the class B
Piedmont League with 87.
Action at the major and minor
meetings in New York and Buffalo
clears up the situation somewhat.
Sone future day baseball will run
talent clinics in cooperation with the
public schools of the nation with fel-
lows like Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and
Carl Hubbell doing the teaching but
that idea is still in the planning
stage. One group made a few states
last year and probably will hit as
many as 15 this time although the
majors did not vote to match the
$5,000 the minors appropriated for
that purpose.
