Wolverines Aim To Revenge
Last Week's Wildcat Triumph

Two Leading Scorers
Clash in Season Finale
Winding up its current Western
Conference campaign, the Michigan
basketball team will face a North-
western quintet which has already
trimmed the Wolverines once this
season, tomorrow night at Evanston.
The contest will take place just a
week after the game here in which
the Wildcats took the measure of
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's squad by
a 49-34 margin. Northwestern led
the Wolverines from a point early in
the first half until the end of the
game in Friday night's fracas, al-
though Michigan made several bids
in the last perio dto catch its high-
flying opponents. 'The victory was
something of an upset, as the Wol-
verines were favoied to win with little
difficulty from a Northwestern team
whose record had been hitherto sig-
nally unimpressive.
Conference Positions Depend on Tilt
Tomorrow night will find the posi-
tions of the two fives considerably al-
tered. The seventh-place Northwest-
ern squad will have been encouraged
by its previous victory over the Wol-
verines, and will have the added ad-
vantage of playing on its home court.
Sixth-place Michigan, on the other
hand, is overdue for a win, having
lost its last three starts to Iowa, the
Wildcats, and Wisconsin.
The Wolverines' chief task will be
to stop Max Morris, Northwestern
center. Morris, who leads the Big
Ten scoring lists with 142 points in
nine contests, was held scoreless dur-
ing the first half of the earlier tilt
between the teams, but made 11
points in the second stanza to cop
second in individual scoring honors
for the evening. Guard Frank Wright
topped Morris' total with 12 points.
Geahan Meets Leading Scorer
The game should prove interesting
also in that Michigan's Bob Geahan

UJ

scoring. Geahan and Morris are sep-
arated by 32 points, and although a
tie between the two is out of the realm
of possibility, the Michigan forward
could do much to narrow the margin
between himself and his opponent.
Coach Dutch Lonborg's starting
lineup is improbable, as it has been
subject to various shakeups all season
long. In the contest here, Lonborg
started Ben Schadler and Fred John-
son at forwards, Morris at center and
Frank Clawson and Wright at guards.
Duane Sickels, brother of Quentin
Sickels, guard on this season's Wol-
verine football team, substituted at
forward for the Wildcats.
Quinn Retires
From Braves
BOSTON, Feb 14 -(P-Bob Quinn,
president of the Boston Braves, an-
nounced tonight on his 75th birthday
that he would retire from that post
to devote his time to development of
an extensive farm system for the
National League baseball club.
He predicted that baseball would
be faster than ever after the war and
expressed the hope that he would
live to see the Braves develop a world.
champion club.
He based his speed forecast on the
assumption that many big leaguers
called to the colors would come back
as good if not better than when they
went away, and that a lot of clever
youngsters-some in the services-
would have developed meanwhile.
As for his own world champion-
ship hopes, Bob said, "I think we
have a fairly good ball club now. If
we can get some of the topnotchers
in the service we'll have a team that
will make them all go."

Sextet Shooting
To Pass .500
In Ontario Tilt i
Five Hockey Matches I
Remain on Schedule
Winning their first overtime game
of the year last Saturday night by
defeating Waterloo 5-4, the Wolver-
ine hockey team will have an oppor-
tunity to rise above the .500 mark
when the pucksters face Western On-
tario University on March 2.
There have been a few changes in
the hockey schedule, and. the dates
for the remaining contests are West-
ern Ontario University March 2, and
the London Athletic Club March 3.
The following week the sextet will
again play two weekend matches
when they encounter, for the sec-
ond time Vickers A. C. on Friday,
March 9, and the next night the
squad will face the Owen Sound
Orphans. The final game of the
year will be on March 17 when the
rinksters oppose the Middlesex and
Huron Regiment.
Pucksters To Have Long Practice
With a two week lull before the
next hockey contest, Coach Vic Hey- 1
liger's charges will be able to im-
prove their defensive work which is
being stressed in practice scrimmages.
Also, the Maize and Blue first line of
center Carl Sulentich, and wings John
Jenswold, and Captain Ted Greer are
emphasizing shooting plays, while de-
fensemen Bob Henderson and Herb
Upton will stress covering up in front
of the net.
Facing Western Ontario the Wol-
verine hockey team will have a chance
to climb above their .500 average for
the first time this season. Having
been successful over Sarnia, .Brant-
ford, and Waterloo, but dropping
games to Vickers and two matches to
Minnesota, the Michigan record is I
now balanced with three wins against
the same number of losses.
To date the top goal getter for the
puck squad has been Greer who has
netted 12 markers in six tilts, followed
by Jenswold who has crashed the.
opponents goal five times. Sullentich
is third with three markers, and Bob
Lilienfield, Henderson, and Fred
Louhsberry have counted for one goal
apiece.

For the first time in the history
of Michigan track competition a pair
of dual meets between two Wolver-
ine squads, Great Lakes and West-
ein Michigan. will be run off at 7:30
Saturday night in the Yost Field
House.
Coach Hen Doherty will divide his
team tip, with the first squad meeting
the Bluejackets, and the second com-
peting against the Broncos. Accord-
ing to coach Doherty, "this new type
competition will not involve any de-
lay, and will present a full array of
competitors for the track fan."
After dominating last week's Mich-
igan Relays by grabbing six firsts,
the Maize and Blue thinclads are fav-
ored over the Sailors, Western Mich-
igan, although not showing too well
against the other Midwest powers
last Saturday, should garner some
points with their individual stars,
Bill Porter, crack sprinter and hurdl-
er, and Bill Moore, former Drake pole
vaulter who nearly equalled the Field
House record in the Relays.
This week's meet, which will be
the last home meet of the indoor
season, will see the Hume twins run-
ning together in the mile for the first
time this ,year. Last year the Humes
captured the Conference mile titles
in a dead heat, and it will be a chance
to see whether they can make a re-
peat performance in 1945.
On of the. feature events of the

evening's program, will be the dual
in the 440-yard dash, where Dick
Forrestel, who placed third for Mich-
igan in the Mel Sheppard 600 in the
Millrose Games, will encounter Grov-,
er Klemmer, Great Lakes dash ace,
who now holds the world record for
the 600 meter dash.
Forrestel, turned an akle in the
Millrose classic, but probably will be
set to toe the mark Saturday night.
In any event the 440 will be a stand-
out, from the standpoint that it is
the first individual race for this dis-
tance in Michigan's meets this season.
The half mile will find Dick Bar-
nard, who ran on the distance med-
ley relay team Saturday, and George
Vetter, who showed plenty of power
in winning the open 660, running for
the Wolverines.
Individual events will be run off
Saturday, and individual scores of
the two meets will be kept separately.
The program will give the entire
Michigan squad actual collegiate
competition, in preparation for the
defense of their Conference title next
month.

Commenting on the most improved
man on the Wolverine swimming
squad this season, Coach Matt Mann
mused a minute, and then named
Ulysses Lopez as the man most wor-
thy of the title, so far in competition.
Lopez is a short well-built fellow
with a dark complexion and a win-
ning smile. He was born in Ecuador
in a little town called Quito, and he
is now attending Medical School,
here at Michigan.
Up until the beginning of this
semester,tthree monthsago, Lopez
had never taken a dive off a spring-
board, but when tryouts for the swim-
ming team were announced, he
showed up bright and early and de-
clared his intentions for the diving
events.
Diving Most Difficult Event
At this point it ought to be pointed
out that diving is one of the most
exacting and arduous of all the differ-
ent divisions which collegiate swim-
ming competition offers. It demands
first of all the utmost coordination
and equilibrium between the differ-
ent sets of muscles in the body. An
almost superhuman sense of balance
and the prime ideal of timing are
necessary.
On top of these qualities, a good
diver must have a tremendous capa-
city for persistent practice, and also
plenty of "guts." All the spectators
who witnessed the Michigan-North-
western meet, and viewed the diving
performance of Carl Quaintance, will
testify to the last statement.
Quaintance Thrilled Throng
On at least two back flips, Quain-
tance came within three inches of
the board on his way down. The
sharp gasps and quick inhaling of
breaths on the part of the spectators
were suitable evideice that no more
than two per cent of the crowd would
have undertaken the same feat.
Notwithstanding these obstacles,
Lopez who had never dived before set
intercollegiate diving as his goal, and
All men interested in trying out
for the baseball squad should report

5. Baseball Coach Ray Fisher has
announced. All candidates are re-
quested to bring their own equip-
ment.

took all the steps necessary to the
acquisition of that goal.
Mann stated three days ago that
at the beginning of the season, he
had to plead with Lopez to attempt
several of the dives, especially the
back dives. "Now," he continued,
"Lopez goes through every dive with
the assurance and nonchalance of a
veteran."
Lopez is by no means as yet an
accomplished diver. His faults are
numerous and obvious in some cases.
He is still nervous in competition, a
nervousness which prevents him from
making the most out of each dive.
Next Year Will Tell
However he has come a long way
towards the winning of his goal, and
with more practice and experience in
big-time competition, Mann firmly
believes that at least by next year,
Michigan will once again have a
diver, who will present a formidable
obstacle to the diving hopes of the
other swimming teams in the Con-
ference and in the nation.
Spartan S wimnringr
Team Enters AAU
Michigan State will send seven swim-
mers to Boys' Club, Detroit, Friday

yard medley relay, 150-yard medley
relay and the 100-yard free style.
