Week-End Series
Quintet Engages Chicago Today,
Encounters Wildcats Tomorrow

By CLARK BAKER
Its title-bound train temporarily
derailed last week by Great Lakes,
Michigan's swimming team will at-
tempt to get on the track tonight
when it invades Northwestern to clash
with the Wildlcats at Evanston.
Tonight's meet will be the first of
a pair this week-end for the Wolver-
ines who stop off at Great Lakes to-
morrow night to take another crack
at the Bluejacket natators. It was
just a week ago that the Sailors
spoiled Michigan's opening, 43-41, in
a thrilling meet here.
Wildcats Drop Two Tilts
Coach Matt Mann's tankers figure
to whip Northwestern handily in to-
night's clash. The Wildcats have been
humbled in both of their starts, 54-29
by Great Lakes, and 51-33 by Mich-
igan State. Mann doesn't intend to
take any chances, though, and will
probably use his strongest lineup in
both meets.
The Wildcats figure to give Michi-
gan trouble in the backstroke and
breaststroke events. For the back-
stroke Coach Bill Peterson of the 'Cats
has freshman Bob Tannehill, who
gave Michigan State's AAU champ,
Howie Patterson, a close battle last
week in the meet between the Wild-
cats and Spartans.
Two Freshmen Breaststrokers
Swimming breaststroke for North-
western will be Al Craig, another
freshman who negotiated the 200-
yard distance in 2:30.9 against Mich-
igan State in the same meet. Bill
Tucker, another good yearling breast-
stroker, will also swim for the Wild-
cats.
To oppose these threats the Maize
and Blue mentor dwill pick from Wil-
lard Metcalf, Ed Stone and Del Loef -
fler for the backstroke and from Bob
Sohl, Heini Kessler and Bob Michels
for his breaststrokers. Both Metcalf
and Sohl gained seconds for the Wol-
verines against Great Lakes last week.
The free-style events should be
pretty much a Michigan monopoly.
Wildcat Captain Graham Davis
doesn't figure to take Matt Mann, Jr.,
in the 220 and 440 distances although
Johnny Neville may give the visiting
Wolverines a little trouble in the 50-
and 100-yard free-style events. Neville
turned in a winning :25 for the 50
against Michigan State.
Mann Will Pick Free-Style Team
Dick Weinberg, Charley Fries, Dave
Tittle, Chuck Moss, Chuck Barnes and
Lqu Kivi will carry the Maize and
Blue colors in the free-style sprints
while Neville Adams, Jay Sanford and
Moss will join Mann in the distance

free-style races. From this line-up
Coach Mann will also choose his 400-
yard free-style relay quartet.
Veteran Dick Kimball will repre-
sent the Wildcats in the diving. Kim-
ball failed to get better than a third
last week against Michigan State and
doesn't figure to do much better to-
night against Wolverines Alex Canja,
Gil Evans and Ralph Trimborn. Mann
announced that Trimborn, who'll be
diving before his hometowners, will
be oneof the Wolverines' t\o diving
entries.
For tomorrow night's meet with
Great Lakes Mann' will use his strong-
est line-up in an effort to reverse last
week's defeat by the Sailors. Wolver-
ine hopes for victory will hinge on
the two relays, where the Maize and
Blue swimmers'suffered two very close
setbacks, and on the 50- and 100-yard
free-style events, which were close
enough to go either way.

NEWS + +VIEWS CO MNT
By BILL MULLENDORE, Sports Editor
WHAT HAPPENS to Michigan football players after the football season
is over?
A survey of the rosters of the five Wolverine winter sports squads re-
veals that a large number of ex-gridders turn their attention to other
athletic pursuits once the spikes and moleskins have been tucked away.
Number one on the list of former footballers who have made the
grade elsewhere is Pete Elliott, the Bloomington, Ill., redhead who has
won a starting berth for himself on the Wolverine basketball quintet.
A halfback, and a good one, on the gridiron, the Boomington Bullet
may surpass his not inconsiderable football feats on the hardwood.
Other grid stars now working under the watchful eye of Basketball
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan include Fullback Jack Weisenburger and End
Lennie Ford. Weisenburger has been handicapped on the court by a chest
injury and has not yet rounded into form. Ford apparently is a year'away
from Western Conference basketball standards, but shows promise for the
future.
SEVERAL OTHER MEMBERS of the football squad are working with
AssistantCoach Ernie McCoy over in the I-M Building. It is still possible
that some of these candidates may improve enough to join the varsity outfit
before the season is over.
Track Coach Ken Doherty has a sizeable contingent of .gridders-turned-
trackmen among the personnel of his indoor cinder squad. Pole vaulter
Warren Bentz, an end for Coach Fritz Crisler, and sprinter Hank Fonde,
who did a lot of sprinting in a football suit as a right halfback, are old
hands at track. Both competed regularly last year.
Tackle Al Wahl and reserve quarterback Jim Artley are seeking
places in the field events. Artley also has been a member of the track
squad before, while Wahl is a newcomer. Both are shot putters.
Cliff Keen, returning to Michigan after a long absence in the Navy to
coach the Wolverine wrestlers, also has been declared a generous dividend
from the football player pool. Fullback Dan Dworsky and George Chiames,
and Stu Wilkins, starting guard, are numbered among the mat aspirants.
IGNORED by the disbanded football squad were the swimming and hockey
teams. Neither aggregation boasts a single former gridder. Ex-right
halfback Bob Nussbaumer reported for hockey at one time, but dropped
out later.
The answer to the failure of either swimming or hockey to lure the
footballers into the fold probably lies in the large measure of highly special-
ized skills demanded of top-notch performers in both sports. Skating is
'an art mastered only after long practice, while competitive swimming also
requires a proficiency gained only after long and arduous hours in the pool,
At any rate, all-around athletes rarely include either sport in their reper-
toires.

Squad Hopes To Break
Colorado Sextet's Jinx
By DES HOWARTH
With a seven game victory streak in
jeopardy, Michigan's untleaten
hockey team will, attempt to break a
three year jinx when it opposes the
Colorado College Tigers at Colorado
Springs tonight in the first of a two
game series.
Coach Vic Heyliger has indicated
that he will start the high-scoring
number two line against the Tigers,
which means Michigan will start the
contest with Al Renfrew and Bill
Jackson at the wings and Gord Mac-
Millan at the center position. Bob
Marshall and Connie Hill will form
the starting defense combination.
Jack.MacInnes will again be in the
nets for the Wolverines.
Two Other Lines
The other two Michigan lines willa
alternate with the MacMillan .line.'
Wally Gacek, Walt Grant, and Neil
Celley are one trio. The Wolverine's
third line will consist of Dick Star-
rak, Chet Kuznier and Karl Sulen-
tich.
Bob Arnot has been switched to de-
fense for tonight's game and will pair
with Clem Cossalter in relieving Mar-
shall and Hill. Sam Steadman is also
expected to see action as a forward on
the Wolverine's third line.
In six previous contests the Maize
and Blue have been unable to defeat
the Tigers. The Wolverines held
Colorado to a tie in the 1940-41 sea-
Eon, the best showing by Michigan to'
date in the series. Colorado has won
the other five games. When the teams
last met in 1942, Michigan was de-
feated twice by scores of 10-2, and
6-2. Because of the war the seriesj
was suspended until this year.
Average Over Seven Goals a Game
Although Michigan's sextet has av-
eraged over seven goals a game and
has yet to suffer defeat, Coach Hey-
liger is not overly optimistic over the
Wolverine's chances in the Colorado
series.
"Colorado College always has a
good team, and the fact that it was
twice beaten by Toronto University
this year will not make our job any
easier. The Tigers will probably be
tougher to beat since they'll be hop-
ing to avenge those losses," declared
the Michigan coach. While not mak-
ing any predictions on the outcome,
Heyliger promised, "We'll give them
our best."

Michigan Squad Eyes
Total of Eight Wins
By HANK KEISER
Twelve Wolverine cagers embark
today for Chicago, where they will
play the first of a two-game weekend
schedule tonight against the Univer-
sity of Chicago and the second against
Northwestern, tomorrow at Evanston.
Michigan will be shooting for its
seventh and eighth wins of the season
in the two-day series, and its second
and third Western Conference victor-
ies. Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's men
have dropped three matches so far,
two in Big Ten competition to Indi-
ana and Ohio State, and the remain-
ing one to Michigan State.
Chicago Loses to Indiana
The Chicago quintet, playing Con-
ference ball for the first, time since
1944, is as yet an unknown quantity
in Big Ten circles. Nelson Norgren,
the Maroons' mentor, has coached the
young team to six wins as against two
losses, only one of which was to a
Conference foe, Indiana, whose pow-
erful squad got the best of the Ma-
roon five in an early season tilt.
Northwestern, on the other hand,
is reported as being one of the top
collegiate teams in the nation today.
The Wildcats boast an undefeated
record, their latest two victories be-
ing 52-44 and 64-35 conquests over
Purdue and Marquette respectively.

Frankie Sinkwich, most valuable play-
er in the National Football League
while with Detroit-in 1944, jumped to
the New York Yankees of the All-
America Conference today in a sur-
prise move that threatened to send
the player fight between the rival
professional circuits into court.
At a news conference attended by
Sinkwich, the Yankees announced
they had signed the two-time All-
America halfback from the University
of Georgia to a three-year contract.
President Dan Topping disclosed only
that Sinkwich's salary ran into "five
figures" but reliable estimates placed
it at around $12 000 a year.

White basketball coach has two major
assets on his 1946 combination. The
Wildcats' top cager is Max Morris,
varsity forward. Morris was the high-
est individual scorer in Big Ten play
last year and is said to be the spark-
plug of the present Northwestern ag-
gregation.
King Other Key Man
Leroy King, towering 6 ft. 7 in. cen-
ter, is Lonberg's other key man. The
balance of the starting five will be
composed of either Chuck Lindgren or
Ray Lofgren at the other forward
post, and guards Bob Wheeler and
Matt Carter.
Opposing Chicago tonight and
Northwestern tomorrow evening, Oos-
terbaan will start Glen Selbo at cen-
ter, Bob Harrison and John Mullaney
at the forwards, and Dave Strack and
Pete Elliott at guard berths. In addi-
tion, Bob Baker, who starred against
Illinois last Saturday, will see a lot
of action, according to the Wolverine
mentor.
