'lP' Cagers
To Vie With
Hin T eam
HoopsLers To Face
Strengthened Five
With Saturday's 43-38 victory over
Illinois a thing of the past, Michi-
gan's cagers are preparing to face a
strengthened Illini aggregation in a
return engagement tomorrow night
in the Field House, which should
prove one of the most interesting
games of the campaign.
Illini Are Well Rated
The Illini, rated a topnotch squad
by virtue of pre-season wins over
Great Lakes and DePaul, are sure
to be a stubborn opponent for any
team they face. And they wirl be
an improved ball club physically from
the one which the Wolverines deci-
sioned Saturday.
Center Don Delaney and guard
Walton (Junior) Kirk, two regulars
on the Orange and Blue quintet,
were not in the best of shape for
last weekend's tilt. Delaneywas re-
cuperating from a recent tonsillec-
tomy and Kirk played 38 minutes
of the game with a badly sprained
ankle which had been expected to
keep him out of the contest. Not
only did the 6 ft., 3 in. Kirk, an All-
Conference guard last year, play the
game under this severe handicap, but
he also scored 11 points to lead his
team in that department.
Illini Were Overconfident
The Illini may also be in better
condition mentally. Possibly they
were not on their toes Satrday as
much as they should have been.
Michigan's one-point victory over
Indiana the previous night, the tir-
ing train ride to Champaign, for the
Wolverines and the fact that they
were playing on their home floor
might have contributed to a feeling
of over-confidence on the part of
the Illini.
Michigan may also be improved by
their rest after the full schedule over
the weekend, and will be taking their
turn at facing the Illini on the home
floor. In any event, Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan's men will be tough to
beat, and should make the contest a
close one.
Illinois Better This Year
Orange and Blue squad is rated
better than the team which tied with
Michigan for sixth in the Confer-
ence last year, with a record of five
wins against seven defeats. In a
pre-season interview, Coach Doug
Mills summed it up this way: "More
depth, more experience, better bal-
ance in height should give Illinois
an improved outlook for the 1944-45
Meanwhile, the Conference race
took a turn for the better as far as
Michigan is concerned, with this
week's tumbling of Purdue from the
group of three undefeated teams.
The Boilermakers hopes for a cham-
pionshi were jarred Monday night
when Minnesota beat them by a five-
point margin. This was a surprise,
as Purdue had handed mighty Ohio
State their first loss Saturday.
Those who still boast a 1- rec-
ord in the Conference are North-
western and Iowa, followed closely
by the Wolverines with a 2-1 rec-

relay team is shown above, (leftf

Kessler Was
Saturday's G
Although the Michigan Mermen
went down to defeat last Saturday,
at the hands of a too-powerful Great
Lakes squad, still, a number of re-
deeming qualities can be easily found
on comparing the time records of
last week with the records of this
season's Swim Gala, and last year's
meet records.
Kessler Bested Mark Last Year

CIhan'ge Rules
Out-of-Bounds Kick-Off
Banned by Committee
COLUMBUS, O., Jan. 11.-(IP)-
The Rules Committee of the Na-
tional College Football Coaches As-
sociation voted today to recommend
five major changes in the collegiate
gridiron code.
Of prime importance were pro-
posals to prohibit the out-of-bounds
kickoff and to permit forward pass-
ing anywhere behind the line of
The other changes which the
coaches voted at an all-day session
to recommend were:
1. To make use of a one-inch tee,
to be provided by the officials, man-
datory for kickoffs.
2. That where the forearm is used
in blocking, the hand must be held
against the body, and striking in the
face with the elbow should be pro-
3. To lessen the severity of the
penalty for an attempted lateral pass
which is thrown forward. Under the
suggested rule there would be a five-
yard penalty and a down from the
point where the attempted lateral
was thrown.

the time of 2:35.0, has bested that
mark four times in last season's com-
petition, and in this year's practice
has gone under that time, on several
It can easily be construed that
Kessler was off form last Saturday
night, and will bring his time down
in the near future. Ray Mondro,
winner of the breaststroke event ad-
mitted that Kessler had beaten him
in their leg of the 300 yard medley
relay, by three or four yards.
One of the most pleasing showings
of the evening was the performance
of Bob Munson in the 150 yard back-
stroke, in which he took second place
to Great Lakes star Sverett Turley.
Munson has been improving steadily
all season, and is beginning to round
out into really fine shape.
Relay Team Does Well
The Wolverine 400 yard freestyle
relay team, consisting of Bill Breen,
Gordon Pulford, Merton Church, and
Chuck Fries, churned through the
distance in the very fast early season
time of 3:31.4, a time which beats
practically all of the previous rec-
ords of last years championship
One main weakness of the 1945
Maize and Blue tankmen was made
evident in the Bluejacket triumph.
It is the fact that Coach Matt Mann
lacks depth of reserves in the free-
style division.
In the freestyle, Church and Fries
are forced to carry the burden of
all the distance events and relays.
Last year Mann had in addition to
this staunch duo, Ace Cory, - Paul
Maloney, and Achilles Pulakus.
Church, Fries, and Cory would split
up the freestyle leg of the 300 yard
medley and the freestyle sprints be-
tween themselves, while the longer
distances, the 220 and 440, would
be ably taken care of by Pulakus
and Maloney. In this way, all the
men would get a maximum rest be-
tween events, and thus be more fit
for competition.

No Immediate
Ban on Sports
ODT or Presidential
Committee May Act
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 11-There
were indications today that Assist-
ant President Jimmy Byrnes will soon
be asked to make a definite overall
decision on what to do with war-
time sports.
Some sources predicted Byrnes will
find that the most practicable solu-I
tion is to order as tight a general
shuitdown as that in effect at race
The request for Byrnes to actj
is exnected to come from a presi-1
dential committee and Office of
Defense Transportation now study-
ing the ban on conventions andr
trade shows attended by 50 or more
"If it reaches a point where com-
plications can't be readily straight-
ened out, we'll go to the White House
for a decision on sports events," an
ODT source said.I
It was emphasized that "in case
of doubt, the thing to do is cancel,"
and that "this thing is very serious:
nobody's kidding about the war'sI
pressing needs."
Many inquiries received by ODT
as to whether basketball tourna-
ments, track meets and such come
under the ban on conventions, in-
volve complex situations.I
Byrnes has said that he contem-
plates no ban on sports . . . and
ODT feels that sports in the main
have been highly cooperative . .
but some observers see develop-
ments the past few weeks leaving!
Byrnes no choice but to order a
general shutdown, if the whole
sports problem is tossed back into
his lap.
Since Byrnes fired a broadside at
professional athletes for not beingf
in the war effort and followed up by
shutting down the race tracks, sports
have been crowded tighter into a

Major Leagues
To Select Head
From Baseball
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Jan. 11-Straws in
the wind today indicated a baseball
moan would be chosen to succeed the
late commissioner Kenesaw Moun-
tain Landis, possibly at the February
joint meeting of the Major Leagues
in New York.
An Associated Press poll of club
owners and general managers, who
must make the 'decision, revealed a
decided trend toward a man versed
in the rules and problems of the game
rather than a nationally-known fig-
ure not identified with the sport.
With the exception of President
Ed Barrow of the New York Yank-
ees, who said he would support any
one of four men, none of the moguls
offered candidates.
Barrow said he would vote' for.
President Ford Frick ofdthe National
League, President Will Harridge of
the American League, general man-
ager Warren Giles of Cincinnati or
Louis McAvoy, director of broad-
casting in the American loop.

MICHIGAN HOCKEY STALWARTS-Wolverine rinksters !(left to
right), Francis Allman and Ted Greer, will face the powerful Minne-
sota sextet tomorrow.
Wolverine Pucksters Will Seek
First Win of Season Tomorrow

The Wolverine pucksters will be
aiming for their first win of the
season tomorrow at Minneapolis,
when they will be facing a strong
and experienced Gopher squad.
Coach Vic Heyliger said that the
starting team will be the same with
the exception of one change. Bob
Upton will replace Francis Allman
and play along side of Bob Hender-
son at right defense, and Allman will
move to the center spot on the sec-
ond forward line. The team that
faces the Gophers, in the second
Maize and Blue hockey game of the
season, will be Captain Ted Greer at
center, wings Fred Lounsberry and
Johnny Jenswold, defensemen Hen-
derson and Upton, and Dick Mixer
will be tending the nets.
Team Works on Defense
Practices this week have concen-

trated around defense strategy and
the Michigan pucksters have been
shooting against Mixer and getting
the experience of covering up in
front of the nets.
Hgyliger said that he "wasn't too
optimistic about the Minnesota
match," mainly because of the lack
of Michigan reserves and the exces-
sive strength of the Minnesota team
because of their two veteran lines.
The result of having a team of
seasoned players can be seen in Min-
nesota's record so far this season.
The Gophers up to date have won
four games against no defeats and
like, Michigan have faced no collegi-
ate opposition. They have beaten St.
James, a Winnipeg team, twice by
scores of 9-3 and 3-0, and'have also
topped the Iron Rangers and Minne-
apolis Monarchs.
