Bies Gives Bowlers OeKe
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15-Bowling got into the controversial war=
time sports picture today with a big family argument over whether to
cancel or continue tournaments.
But some tournament sponsors say they intend to go right ahead
with tournament plans unless a direct request for cancellation comes
from the government.
Among these was Clarence Jonen, secretary of the Wisconsin State
Bowling Association, whose tournament is scheduled to begin in Mil-
waukee Saturday.
Jonen said War Mobilization Director Jimmy Byrnes assured him
more than three weeks ago that there was no objection to a state bowl-
ing tournament.

Navy Transfers
Seven Aihietes

Loss of Bruce Hilkene,
Art Renner Blow to
Michigan's Grid Hopes
Seven Michigan athletes in the
Navy V-12 program will be trans-
ferred from the campus at the close
of the present semester, it was an-
nounced today.
The list includes: Bruce Hilkene,
regular end on last season's football
team and captain-elect of the 1945
squad and also a member of the bas-
ketball team for the past two years;
Art Renner, Hilkene's running mate
at end last fall; and Dick DeMark,
reserve halfback.
Others scheduled to report to other
bases are George Darrow and Charles
Telfer, both regulars on the wrest-
ling team; Herb Upton, veteran two-
year man at defense on the hockey
squad; and Ed Fulkman, backstroker
of the swimming squad.
Loss of Hilkene and Renner, Mich-
igan's first string pair of fHankers, is
a sharp blow to Wolverine grid hopes
for the coming season. Hilkene was
designated by Coach H. O. Crisler as
the "most improved player on the
squad" at the close of the 1944 season
and was rewarded for his efforts
when his teammates elected him cap-
tain. Renner, also,-turned in highly
commendable performances all sea-

llini Are Favored
To Win Team Title
A four team duel for the Western
Conference wrestling championship;
will be waged tomorrow, when Michi-
gan will defend its crown against the
threats of Illinois, Minnesota, and
Indiana at Northwestern.
The Fighting Illini is favored to
win as they have swept through three
Conference meets without a loss.
They beat the Wolverines 21-10, Iowa
by a decisive count, and Indiana, 22-6.
At 121 pounds for Michigan will be'
either Dick Freeman or Art Sachsel.
Freeman, who beat Sachsel earlier
in the week, expressed the fear that
he might not be able to make the
necessary weight, thus forcing Sach-
sel to step in.
Other strong men in this division
are Bob Burwell, undefeated Illinois
lightweight, and Lloyd Gammell, In-
diana 121-pounder. Both these boys
beat Sachsel in their matches with
him, although in each engagement
was very close.
Johnston's Opposition Tough
Bob Johnston, undefeated Wolver-
ine 128-pound grappler, will experi-
ence the most trouble from George
Voorhees, Illinois letterman, who tied
Johnston previously. Another man
Johnston will have to face will be
Captain Rometo Macias, undefeated
in five years of competition at the
University of Iowa. Macias is defend-
ing conference champion.
In the 136-pound bracket, Newt
Skillman's main competition will be

and Dave Eastling. Hanson is the
undefeated 136-pounder from North-
western who administered a 16-7 de-
feat of Skillman in the first match
of the year. Eastling is the Minne-
sota stalwart who beat Skillman by a
narrow margin last week.
Purdue will have an undefeated
wrestler in the 145-pound division, as
Bob Folk, the favorite, will seek to
keep his record clean. Folk will be
menaced by Bob Bohannon, Illinois
grappler, and Fred Booth, Michigan
matman. Folk beat both these men
during the season.
155 is Anybody's
One of the most hotly-contested
weights in the meet will be the 155-
pound class. Here such wrestlers as
Hugh Wilson, Conference champion
from Michigan last year who is now
at Indiana; Dick Nelson, runner-up
last year, from Minnesota; Bob Rob-
erts, undefeated this year, from Pur-
due; and George Darrow, Wolverine
grappler, will share the spotlight.
Another fierce battle is expected in
the 165-pound division. Charles Tel-
fer, whose orders may force him to go
to Detroit on Saturday, would ordi-
