Tonight

Wrestlers Open
Mat Campaign
At Bloomington
Chiaines or Peterson
May Replace Dworsky
By CHUCK LEWIS
Coach Cliff Keen and nine grap-
plers will depart from Ann Arbor at
1 p.m. this afternoon for Bloomington
to initiate the 1946 wrestling season
in a dual match with Indiana's mat-
men Saturday.
The starting lineup is quite definite
except in the heavyweight division, in
which Dan Dworsky was expected to
grapple. Dworsky has had a cold
during the week, and he doesn't know
whether or not he will make the trip
to Hoosierland. In the event that
Dworsky will be unable to wrestle,
either George Chiames or Ward Pet-
erson will take on Joe Sowinski, the
Indiana heavy, while the other will
start in the 1?5-pound class. Origin-
ally, Chiames was supposed to be the
man at this weight, however, both
Chiame and Peterson will go to
Bloomington.
At 121 pounds, Jim Stark will face
Mike Rolak, Indiana lightweight, who
is one of the three veterans which
Hoosier Coach Charles Mc Daniel will
send against the Wolverine matmen.
John Allred will tangle with another
veteran of the opposing grapplers in
Ray Cantarelli, 128 pounder who
formerly wore the Scarlet and Gray
of Ohio State. In the 136-pound divis-
ion, Navy trainee Dale Richardson
gets the nod, while freshman Wayne
Smith will meet Indiana's 145 pound
entrant, Elias George.
One of the two men on Michigan's
squad with any previous experience
is Stu Snyder, a V-12 student on
campus. Snyder will wrestle at 155
pounds. The other veteran is 165
pounder Captain Bill Courtright, who
will grapple for the first time since
1942, when he was captain-elect of
that year's team before his depart-
ure for.the Army.
This match will be both teams' first
crack at intercollegiate competition
this year, and the outcome will have
a bearing on the Big Ten standings
for the season. Coach Keen has de-
clined to make any statement regard-
ing the coming match as most of his
team is inexperienced, and he does
not know how they will fare under
competition.

In Series Opener With Minnesota

Wolverines Seek First Triumph Since 1942
Over Twice-Beaten Golden Gopher Sextet
By DES HOWARTH
It's Minnesota against Michigan again as Coach Larry Armstrong and
his Gopher sextet invade Ann Arbor to do battle with the unbeaten Wol-
verines in the first of a two game hockey series, the tilt beginning at 8 p.m.
tonight in the Coliseum.
Fans have always been assured of a colorful contest when the Golden
Gophers returned to town, whether the games were close or otherwise, and
tonight's game should prove no exception. For the first time in many years,
however, Minnesota will not rank asw> -

Coach Vic Heyliger warns, however,
that Minnesota always has a power-

that the Maize and Blue pucksters
have met to date.

Minnesota is expected to start its
veteran line composed of Bob Flem-
ing, Bob Carley and Brad Thompson.
Al Opuahl, junior defenseman will get
the call at one defense post teaming
with Jack O'Brien. It is not yet
known whether Armstrong will start
letterman Zed McCabe or freshman
Duff McDermid at goal.
Both Michigan and Minnesota will
have plenty of reserve strength.
Michigan's pace-setting trio of Gord
MacMillan, Bill Jacobson, and Al
Renfrew will give the Wolverines a
second powerful line, while a third
will also see much action. Chet Kuz-
nier, Karl Sulentich and Dick Star-
rak form the latter combination.
Minnesota will also have an alter-
nate line of freshmen, including Pat

Top '45 Pr'os
OTTAWA, ILL., Jan. 17, (IP) In the
opinion of H. O. (Fritz) Crisler, Uni-
versity of Michigan football coach
and athletic director, Army's mighty
football powerhouse eleven could have
beaten any professional team last sea-
son.
Crisler, whose Michigan Wolverines I
gave the Cadets one of their toughest
fights before being subdued 28 to 7,
spoke at a banquet last night for the
Ottawa township high school football
team.
"Mind you, I'm spcakin'g of th~e 1945
Army team and the 1945 pros when I
say the Army could whip any of
them," Crisler told the guests.
Asked about prospects for 1946 at
Michigan, Crisler said that the Wol-
verines, who meet Army again at Ann
Arbor, probably can look for the re-
turn of tackle Mervin Pregulman and
backs Bob Wiese and Paul White
from service before next fall.

Morris, Kiung Lead-
Pi p i's Offeiisive
By HANK KEISER
Northwestern's cage crew, smarting
from a defeat at the hands of Illi-
nois Monday, will attempt to stage a
repeat of last Saturday night's win
over the Wolverines at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow at the Yost Field House.
This will be the second of a home-
and-home series between the two f
schools, and the last time they face1
each other this season. The Wildcats
have the edge thus far, by virtue of
their 60-41 beating of Michigan's
quintet in the initial game last week
at Northwestern.
Led By Morris
Coach Dutch Lonberg, Purple and
White basketball mentor, is bringing
a well-trained squad to Ann Arbor led
by Max Morris and Leroy King. This
Wildcat duo racked up between them
37 of the 60 points with which the
Evanston men downed the Wolverines.
Morris, who starts at forward, was
nominated the most valuable player
in the Conference last year, while his
ruanning mate, King, who stands 6 ft.
7 in. tall, handles the varsity center
assignment and is invaluable in play
under the basket.
Chuck Lindgren will probably be at
;the Wildcat's other forward post to-
morrow, while Bud Carter and Buzz
Wheeler stand ready to hold down the
guard posts at the starting whistle.
This lineup is the same which over-
ran the Michigan five last week.
Wolverines In Sixth Place
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan revealed
his intention to place the same start-
ing five on the floor that opposed the
Purple and White in the team's first
meeting. Bob Harrison, the Wolver-
' fines' top scorer, and John Mullaney
will step in at the forwards; Pete El-
liott and Dave Strack at the guards,
and Glen Selbo at the pivot post.
Michigan rates sixth in the Big Ten
basketball race, having won two and
Slost three matches. The Northwestern
squad, which was undefeated until
the Illinois whipping last Monday,
ranks fourth.

Second half of Titl
Go on Block at IDetroit
Taking advantage of a free week-
end from dual competition, Coach
Matt Mann .has entemed seven of his
Maize and Blue swimmers in the
Michigan State AAU championship
meet tomorrow night at Northwest-
ern High School, Detroit.
In all six more State titles will be
at stake tomorrow night in the second
part of the 1945-6 Michigan AAU
championships, the first half of which
was held here Dec. 15. In that meet
the Wolverines walked off with four
of the five crowns.
Bob Matters will swim in three
events for the Maize ano Blue nata-
tors. He'll be the lone Wolverine rep-
resentative in the 150-yard individ-
ual medley and 75-yard back stroke
races and will team up with breast-
stroker Bob Sohl and freestyler Matt
Mann, Jr., in the 150-yard medley
relay.
Neville Adams, Chuck Moss and
Mann will carry the Maize and Blue
colors in the 400-yard freestyle event
while teammates Frank Anderson
Bob Michels and Sohl will represent
Michigan in the 220-yard breast
stroke race.
Matters and Mann both chalked up
victories for Michigan in the meet
last month. Matters erased the State
mark in winning the 100-yard breast
stroke event while Mann churned to a
triumph in the 220-yard freestyle
race.
Next dual meet on the Maize and
Blue slate will bc a Conference en-
gagement with Purdue Jan. 26 at the
Sports Buildiuz tJJlf1.

NEWS + VIEWS+ *COMMENT
By BILL MULLENDORE, Sports Editor
A LOT of eyes will be on a husky kid named Max Morris when Northwestern
University's basketball team takes the floor against the Michigan Wol-
verines Saturday night in Yost Field House, and with good reason, for
Morris is probably as good a basketball player as the Western Conference
has to offer this season.
In fact, no one is going to be very much surprised if the Wildcat star
succeeds in his efforts to defend the Big Ten individual scoring title
he won last year. If he does succeed, the chances are better than fair
he will make mythical All-American basketball team, no mean feat
considering the competition.
Bennie Oosterbaan, Michigan's cage coach, has gone on record in fa-
vor of Morris "as the best player in the Conference this winter." No doubt
Morris' 20 points against the Wolverines the last time the two teams met
had something to do with Oosterbaann's choice. Those 20 points made the
difference in the 60-41 score by which the Wildcats licked his pupils. .
Mr. Morris is a versatile young man. le was selected on more than
one All-American football team this past fall for his sterling work as
an end on the Wildcat eleven. Those in the know say he was even better
than Indiana's Bob Ravensburg as a flanker.
On the basketball floor, Morris relies on speed, an excellent pair of
hands, and court sense to roll up his scoring records. Not exceptionally tall,
as outstanding basketballers go, he more than makes up for his lack of
height with other qualifications. He is definitely a man to watch Saturday
night.
ADD signs of spring. Basketball is in the air on the Michigan campus.
Down at Yost Field House, Baseball Coach Ray Fisher is getting a
line on pitchers and catchers in daily workouts under lights. In fact,
Ray has had his battery men limbering up their arms for more than two
months.
We doubt very much if many other collegiate baseball coaches have
given more than a passing thought to their 1946 teams. Which probably ex-
plains why Fisher is generally recognized as the outstanding college baseball
coach in American-wand has the record to prove it.
