MaItmenEngage Indiana
In Initial Tilt of Season
Courtright To See First Action Since 1942;
Keen Undecided About Heavyweight Starter

Michigan's wrestling team will
open its 1946 Big Ten wrestling sea-
son tonight, when it faces a more ex-
perienced Indiana mat team at
This match will also be the season's
opener for the Hoosiers. Although
both teams are unknown quantities,
Indiana is the more experienced
Indiana's coach, Charles McDaniel,
is set on his lineup for this initial
meet. However, Wolverine mentor,
Cliff Keen, is undecided as to his
heavyweight wrestler. Dan Dwor-
sky was supposed to start for Michi-
ga in this class, but since Dworsky
has a cold Keen is not sure if he will
be able to wrestle. If Dworsky should
not be in condition to compete, then
either George Chiames or Ward Pet-
erson will wrestle I his place.
Sowinski Is Indiana's Heavyweight
Peterson or Chiames will be op-'
posed by Joe Sowinski, Indiana's
heavyweight. Sowinski is a junior
from East Chicago, and has been a
member of the team for two years.
However, he did not wrestle last year
due to an injured shoulder.
Jim Stark, who will open for Mich-
igan at 121 pounds will meet Mike
Rolak. Rolak was a student at In-
diana for one semester prior to his
entrance into the Army Air Forces.
As a navigator, he made 25 missions
over France and Germany.
Allred To Start
John Allred, who is starting for
the Wolverines at 128 pounds, will be
matched with Ray Cantarelli. Can-
tarelli, a sophomore from Cleveland,
is a veteran wrestler. Last year he
competed for Ohio State, where he

igan Union. See Elmer Swanson.

placed fourth in the Big Ten, and
third in the NCAA.
Starting for the Wolverines at 135
pounds will be Navy trainee Dale
Richardson. Richardson will be op-
posed by Bernard Berger. Berger is
a sophomore, and this is his first sea-
son out for the squad.
Smith Goes At 145
In the 145-pound class, Wayne
Smith gets the nod for the Michigan
grapplers. Smith will meet Elias
George, freshman from Cannons-
burg, Pennsylvania. George was third
last year in the NAAU meets while a
student at Oklahoma A & M.
One of Michigan's veteran wres-
tlers, Stu Snyder, will be Keen's
choice to start in the 155-pound class.
Snyder is a V-12 student on campus,
and will be opposed by George Mc-
Cool, a junior from Indianapolis. Mc-
Cool is a paratrooper veteran and was
on the team last season, however, a
broken foot forced him to curtail his
Courtright Meets Napolitan
Michigan's other veteran wrestler,
Captain Bill Courtright, will be the
Wolverines' choice to wrestle in the
165-pound division. Tonight's meet
will mark the first one Courtright has
competed in since 1942, when he was
captain-elect of that year's team
prior to his entrance into the Army.
Wrestling against Courtright will be
Larry Napolitan, freshman from Far-
rell, Pa. Last year Napolitan won the
All-Allegheny Mountain Association
At 175-pounds, Robert Johnson will
be starting for the Hoosiers. Johnson
is a freshman from Chicago, and won
second place in the All-City tourna-
ment. The Wolverine who will op-
pose Johnson will be either Chaimes
or Peterson. Coach Keen said that
one of these men will wrestle in the
unlimited division, and one will com-
pete in the 175-pound class.

CLIFF KEEN - Wolverine mentor,
whose wrestlers open season with
Indiana today.
Michig"an Teami
Has ominated
rack Records
"In general the prospects aren'tl
too good" were the words with which
the Michigan track coach Ken Do-
herty yesterday described the possi-
bilities of his team in the quarter mile
and mile relay events this season.
"Michigan has dominated the Big
Ten Conference for the past 15 years,
with Indiana, Iowa and Illinois run-
ning far behind." Doherty has the
records of the past years to back up
his statement.
68 Points in 440
Since 1930, Wolverines have picked
up 68 points in the 440-yard run in
the Conference Meet while Indiana
has gathered 39. Iowa and Illinois
tied at 35, just four points behind.
The Illini have shown the most im-
provement because of their points,
22 have been made in the past six
years, while Indiana, until the begin-
ning of the decade traditionally the
second track school in the Confer-
ence, has slipped badly since the be-
ginning of the war.
In the relay event it is the'same
story with the Wolverines far in the
lead with 4912 points to Indiana's
28. The Wolverines have copped the
mile relay title four out of five times
since 1940 and finished second and
third the other two years.
Johnson Is Only Veteran
Doherty has only one veteran from
last year's team and a returned vet-
eran from 1943 and three newcomers
from which to choose the four mer,
to run on the relay team and in the
quarter mile.
Val Johnson is almost assured of
a position because of his last year's
record. Bill Matney is back on the
squad after a two year absence
Bill Haidler is the most promising
freshman in the group of newcomers.
He is capable of breaking 51 seconds
at present and may bring his time
under 50 seconds before the end of
the season. Ron Soble and Jim Pierce
round out the list of candidates in
this event.

liger's crew but was not pressed to
the same extent as McDermid.
Once again Michigan had tol
come from behind to win after spot-
ting the Northmen a one-goal lead
in the opening period. With the
Gophers a man short and Michigan
trying to tally on a power play, Frick
grabbed the loose puck and bulled
his way past the defense to score the
only goal of the period.{
Michigan knotted the score at 7:29
of the second stanza when Grant
took Bob Marshall's pass at the
Gopher blue line and faked McDer-
mid out of the play. Hill put the
Wolverines into the, lead midway
through the period, lifting the puckI
into the nets on a rebound off theI
goalie's pads. Michigan never relin-
quished this lead.
Grant, Renfrew Tally
In the final stanza Grant added'
another score at 3:55 and Al Ren-
frew clinched the game with a hard
shot from ten feet out, making the
score 4-1.
With less than three minutes to
play, Bob Carley back-handed a shot
into an open Michigan net after Mac-
Innes had been drawn out of position4
for Minnesota's second goal.
Michigan and Minnesota will re-
suine action tonight in the second
game of the series. They will play
another two game series in Minneap-
olis on Feb. 1 and 2.t
