Win over Boilermakers
Church Takes First Place in Two Events
As Anderson, Munson Also Gain Victories
Special to The Daily
LAFAYETTE, Ind.-Capturing seven first places out of a possible nine,
the Wolverine swimming team notched its second straight Western Con-
ference win by swamping an outclassed Purdue squad, 51-33.
Captain Mert Church, regaining his form for the first time this
season, took first places in the 100 and 220-yard freestyle events, the
former race being highlighted by a last lap kick which drove him to the
finish, scant yards ahead of team-mate Charlie Fries.
Frank Anderson, Wolverine understudy breaststroker, who so far this
season has been overshadowed by Conference champ Heini Kessler in the
event, came through to win the 200

Drafting of Ball
Players To Be
Topic of Parley
Semi-Essential Rating
Gains Moguls' Support
semi-essential classification for base-
ball to keep the game going in 1945
may be one of the possibilities that
bigwigs of the sport will discuss in
New York Friday.
Baseball people, reluctant all along
to be quoted on wartime problems,
nevertheless have indicated they feel
a semi-essential rating could be jus-
tified on this basis:
During the ball season, let avail-
able players follow their profession;
during the six months off season, use
them in the war jobs for which they
are best fitted.
Double Duty
In this way, ball players could per-
form double duty-not only contrib-
ute to -the essential victory undertak-
ing, but also do their normal bit in
aiding morale.
This might make it possible for the
Army, Navy and War Manpower Com-
mission to channel back into the
sport some physically rejected men,
plus others discharged from service
and 4-F's not yet called up for re-
view under proposed manpower con-
trol legislation.
Wartime Record
Baseball's position is further out-
lined by its wartime record to date:
Number of games played in train-
ing camps, 800.
Men in uniform admitted free to
league games, 4,500,000.
Contributions in high figures to
ball-and-bat funds, in radio, picture

Bikoff Calls for
Extensive I-Al
Sports Schedule
Morrie Bikoff, Coordinator of Resi-
dence Halls athletics, announced at
a meeting of the athletic directors
of the residence halls recently that an
extensive program of sports has
been planned for the next semester.
Bikoff, who was just appointed by
Peter A. Ostafin, Residence Halls di-
rector, also said that the current
basketball schedule would probably
be played out on Mondays. The
games will continue through the end
of this semester and into the first
two weeks of next semester.
The athletic directors also decide
that the Residence Halls would have
leagues in ping-pong and volleyball
starting early next semester. Bik-
off stated that one night would be
set aside for a track meet and one
night for a swimming meet if there
was enough interest.
Plans were also drawn up for soft-
ball, tennis and golf programs after
the other events are completed. At
the end of the spring term a trophy
'Vill be presented to the outstanding
house on campus. The decision will
be based on the number of points
accumulated in the various events.
The committee, consisting of Louis
Hallisey, Wenley; Art Bradley, Allen-
Rumsey; Jack Campbell, 1000 Hill
and Murray Grant, Fletcher, ended
the meeting by deciding that a free
throwing contest.will be held in about
two weeks.

yard breaststroke, as Kessler did not
participate in the race. Bob Mun-
son, the up and coming backstroker,
whose times have been steadily im-
proving, churned the 150-yard back-
stroke to score his second straight
first place in as many weeks.
Michigan Out in Front
Michigan, according to its usual
form, went out in front at the start,
as the 300-yard mealey team chalked
up its third victory in the fast time
of 3:08.4. In the following race
Church snagged his first victory of
the evening in the grueling 220, and
twenty minutes later he made it num-
ber two by edging out Fries in the
100. In the 50-yard freestyle, Boil-
ermaker captain, Harry Ahlquist out-
swam Charlie Fries, thus incurring
Fries' first defeat of the season in out-
of-school competition.
After losing the diving, to suffer its
second and final loss of the meet, the
Maize and Blue bounced back to take
the 150-yard backstroke due to the
efforts of the embryonic star, Bob
Anderson Wins
In the 200-yard breaststroke, Frank
Anderson, sophomore stand-in to
Kessler, for the first time this season,
broke into the number one division,
to take the event. Ralph Chubb,
football star of 1944, kept in the
sports limelight by placing third in
the race.
In the two final events, the 440-
yard freestyle and the 400-yard free-
style relay, Gordon Pulford, recon-
verted backstroker, outshone Boiler-
maker Bud Beyer, to win the first,
while the undefeated freestyle relay
team upheld its enviable record to
score one more on the winning ledger.

FOR THE PAST few years, Illinois basketball teams have dominated the
spotlight in this sport in Conference competition and although they
relinquished their Big Ten title to Ohio State last year, they are in the
tlick of the title race again this season, as their two wins and one loss
puts them in third place behind the Bucktes who have played one more
The Illini team that most people associate as the greatest, is the
- "one starring Andy Phillip" and nicknamed the "Whiz Kids." This
team performed in 1942-4;, anti nog only annexed the Conference
crown those two years, but also won national recognition, and Illinois
partisans, as well as the critics, wondered from whence the main
source of their success emanated,
Many people stated that the illini were just blessed with good players,
who had attained their reputations in prep schools. However, it takes
more than good players to make any team, as these players have to be
coordinated into one unit, and they have to work together and not as
individuals. Hence, when you have a star-studded squad it is hard to
convince the players to cooperate with each other as they will continually
be trying to live up to their past reputations, and the outcome will inevit-
ably be disastrous.
ONE OF THE MAIN reasons for the success of the Illini is that their head
coach Doug Mills, in an effort to give the fans their money's worth,
makes every play and movement on the court a challenge to the fans
with the intricacy and polish of each exhibition.
Also, in contrast to most basketball offenses, Coach Mills innovated the
idea of moving the ball laterally across the court, with the players moving
in the same lateral direction, and this results in skillful, lightning-like
movements which are hard to follow by the eye.
This type of game involves precise and exaet movements by the play-
ers, and the second phase of the Illini success can be attributed to
Assistant Coach Wallie Roettger, whose job it is to take these players as
novices and mold them into a pe{fect machine. The patience and
monotony involved with such a job, would also seem futile, but one
look at the won-lost record, would tend to indicate that Wallie Roettger
was more than compensated for his endless toil.
The combination of Mills and Roettger and their impressive record
substantiates and throws more light on a recent statement by the Wol-
verines trainer, Ray Roberts, which in essence dealt with the idea that1
the athletes of the early 1900's were better individually than present day
athletes, but that modern coaching is the big factor in the greater number
of records established.
