In Conference Opener
Wolverine and Wildcat mermen
are scheduled to resume their old
rivalry at 8 p. in. today in the Sports
Building, competing in a dual meet
the results of which, in the opinion
of Coach Matt Mann, "will estab-
lish a fairly accurate criterion as to
the outcome of the Big Ten race."
Coach Mann, whose teams have
captured 14 Conference titles for the
Maize and Blue, stated further that,
"the Michigan squad is favored to
beat Northwestern's crew." This
prediction is based on the Wolver-
ine's definite edge in the short-dis-
tance freest4le and breaststroke di-
visions, In these classes Captain
Mert Church, Chuck Fries, and Heini
Kessler are counted on to garner an
impressing point total for the Maize
and Blue.
Mowerson to Perform
Newcomer Bob Mowerson, recent-
ly discharged by the Army because
of malaria contracted in the South
Pacific, will also swim for the Wol-
Ralph Chubb, star halfback of last'
season's Wolverine grid squad, will
make his debut as a natator in one
of tonight's events, Coach Mann re-
vealed. In addition, Bill Opdyke, a
member of the Navy V-12 unit, will
be given his first chance to compete
for Michigan in the freestyle events.
Davis Offers Stiff Competition
Davis, a performer in the 220 and
440 freestyle events, promises to of-
fer stiff competition to Wolverine
opponents in these races. He de-
feated both Pulakus and Pylkas of
Great Lakes in the 220 tilt, thus
givink him the edge over Church,
Michigan's entrant.
Huesner will bolster Northwest-
ern's chances in the freestyle dis-
tance events, attempting to conquerE
Michigan's Jack Zimmerman, Dave
B'ridges, and Gordon Pulford in the
440 clash. Kessler will face Wildcat
Bob Daley in the breaststroke com-
petition which, according to the past
performances of both men, promises
to be one of the heated contests of
the evening.
Tribble is Probable Winner
Conference champ Bob Tribble is
expected to churn his way to vic-
tory in the backstroke event, defeat-
ing Maize and Blue tankmen Pulford
and Bob Munson.
Northwestern was the victim of
two defeats at the hands of the Wol-
verines last season. Both dual meets
were hotly contested
Now Showing!

The death of the late Major John L. Griffith, left his position as'
commissioner of Big Ten athletics wide open, and sometime in the nears
future a new Western Conference czar will be selected.
I understand that one of the principle candidates is K. L. "Tug"
Wilson, director of athletics at Northwestern University, and the other
likely choice centers in our own back yard and involves Coach H. 0.
"Fritz" Crisler.
In either case it will undovbtedly be a draft as neither man is
seeking the position, and when this same topic was broached to Coach
Crisler several months ago, he stat-d very emphatically that he did not
want the job.
Both of these men have given a good example of their efficiency
in their respective schools. Wilson has been affiliated with the direct-
orship of Northwestern athletics since 1926, and not only has his ad-
ministration been a sound one, but he has also been active in the j
National Collegiate Athletic Association and Olympic committee af-
On the other hand, Coach Crisler has been the main factor
in the impetus toward improvement of intercollegiate athletics, as well
as the intramural program on campus. And it was Coach Crisler's physi-
cal fitness program that received nation wide publicity as one of tlM
first and most complete programs of its kind. This innovation came about
during the early and dark days of the war when such leadership was'
eagerly desired.
Coach Crisler has not only handled business relations for athletes, but
he has also managed to come up with some of the best football teams in
the country year after year. This year, when he piloted a mediocre grid
squad to second place in the Big Ten standings, his genius was full recog-
nized by John L. Griffith, before said gentleman passed on.
A few days before he was fatally stricken, Griffith confided to
intimates that he had cast a "Coach-of-the Year" ballot for Crisler
ahead of Carroll Widdoes of Ohio State's undefeated team and Earl
Blaik of Army's juggernaut, the two men who beat Crisler out for this
honorary post in the actual balloting.
"Few fans realize what a tremendous job Crisler did with a team
that had average personnel at best and i nidscason lost its two key
players," stated Griffith.
'This was a sincere tribute paid to a great sports figure, and if it
were Crisler who would be drafted as the new commissioner, it would
serve as an everlasting monument of his worth and value by col-!
leagues. However, albeit the Michigan fans would appreciate the ges-
ture on the part of the drafters, I don't think that they would greet
the decision with much animation. For, as I have said earlier, and as '
many of his players have declared, "Coach Crisler is one of the
greatest, if not the greatest coach in the game today."
Believing implicitly in the above quote, I shall adhere to that old
superstitious idea and join the ranks of Michigan followers who are keep-
ing their fingers crossed in the hope that they will again see Crisler walk
out onto the field with his football team in the initial game of the 1945
grid season.
