v E

Michigan's swimming team will go
after its second straight Conference
triumph against Purdue's natators at
3 p.m. tomorrow in the Sports Build-
ing pool.
Two weeks ago the Wolverines
downed Northwestern 47-34, in their
Big Ten debut. Both the Boilermakers
and the Maize and Blue have met
Great Lakes this year, Purdue losing
its lone start to theBluejackets, 53-32,
while Michigan broke even with the
Sailors.
Diving Event Featured
Feature event of the evening may
be the diving where Coach Matt
Mann's aces, Alex Canja, Gil Evans,
I-M Results
Alpha Tau Omega's "A" team com-
piled the highest score ever recorded
by any team in Michigan intramural
basketball last night when it racked
up 90 points to down Theta Chi,
which only managed to garner 18.
Other Results:
"A" LEAGUE
SAE 19; Beta Theta Pi 17
Chi Phi 36; ZBT 11
Phi Sig 2; Alpha Delts 0 (forfeit)
Phi Gam 34; SAM 32
"B" LEAGUE

Sigma Chi 63; Phi Sigs 29'

and Ralph Trimborn will oppose Pur-
due's discharged war veteran, Major
Willis. Canja is unbeaten in college
competition this year while Evans has
been beaten only by his teammate.
Boilermakers Look Tough
Both Wolverines turned in wins
over Great Lakes' Carl Quaintance in
their two showings aginst the Sailor
diver. Willis, too, holds a decision
over Quaintance and may give the
Maize and Blue divers plenty of com-
petition.
Matt Mann, III, figures to get his
first real test of the year in the 220-
yard freestyle event when he races
Purdue's ace, Dick Hennigan. The
Boilermaker star set a new Purdue
record in beating Sailor Tommy Gas-
tineau last week. Both freestylers are
unbeaten in college competition.
Metcalf Seeks Win
Another interesting race may come
in the back stroke where Michigan's
Willard Metcalf and Purdue's Pete
Huntington, a letterman from 1944-5,
clash. Metcalf who has had some stiff
competition thus far this season, may
finally break into the winning circle.
The Wolverine freshman backstrok-
er has been unlucky enough to face
such stars as Michigan State's Howie
Pattersdn, Northwestern's Bob Tan-
nehill, and Great Lakes' Dick Weedin
in his initial collegiate efforts.
Depending on how the opening
events turn out, Mann will probably
juggle his line-up to give most of
his promising freshmen a chance to
show their stuff before a home crowd.

JACK UNDERMAN - filling Arnie
Risen's shoes at center for Ohio
State. He's garnered 50 points in
five Conference matches and rates
12th in Big Ten scoring.

Michigan's varsity wrestling team
will stage its first home match of the
season 'when the grapplers take on
the Purdue Boilermakers, defending
Big Ten champs, this Saturday night
after the Michigan-Ohio State bas-
ketball game in the Yost Field House.
The team has been working hard to
correct the mistakes it made in losing
to Indiana last week. Coach Cliff
Keen expects his charges to give a
much better showing when they face
the Boilermakers Saturday.
Purdue Strong
Purdue is considered a bit stronger
than the Hoosiers, but Keen feels that
his charges will give them a tough
fight and is optomistic about the fu-
ture.
A slightly different lineup will face
Purdue than was used in the last
match. At 121 pounds, Jim Stark,
sophomore engineer from Lewiston,
N. Y., who beat his Indiana opponent,
still seems to get the call over Forrest
Dayton as a result of intra-squad
matches this week. John Allred still
retains top honors among the 128-
pounders.
Smith To Wrestle At 136
Wayne Smith, who grappled at 145
last week, will tangle in the 136-
pound class against Purdue, while
either Art Clements or Ken Jobson
will break into the lineup at 145
pounds. Jobson has a minor injury
so Clements may get the nod.
Stu Snyder is kingpin in the 155-

pound bracket but is closely contested'
for the top spot by Earle Russell.
Captain Bill Courtright, who gained
the only fall in the Indiana meet, will
again tangle at his weight of 165
pounds.
Dworsky Will Start
George Chiames and Ward Peter-
son are battling it out to see who
will face Mike Rajcevich, Big Ten
Conference champion at 175 pounds.
Ex-gridder Dan Dworsky will proba-
bly wrestle again for Michigan in the
heavy weight class.
Claude Reeck, Purdue mentor, will
bring his' matmen here Saturday
after encountering Michigan State's
Spartans Friday night. The Boiler-
makers defeated Illinois, 20-6, last
Saturday at Lafayette.
MSC Will Face
Bucks Saturday
EAST LANSING, Jan. 24, ()-Two
untried track squads, Michigan State
and Ohio State, will compete in a dual
meet here Saturday.
The Spartans have returning let-
termen in eight events, with the main
power in the pole vault where three
players have done better than 13 feet
in practices. The team also has weight
in the broad jump and hurdles events.

By RUTH ELCONIN1
According to VicHeyliger, Mich-
igan's hockey coach, the Wolverine
sextet will receive its major test of
the season when it encounters the
University of Toronto Blues tonight
and tomorrow at Toronto.
The Maize and Blue's puck men-
tor also stated, "This week's series
will be a good indication of the
winner of the 1945-46 North Amer-
ican Collegiate Hockey Champion-
ship." The top college hockey teams
are reported to be Michigan, Min-
nesota, and Toronto, and the Wol-
verines already have downed the
Golden Gophers, and now face To-
ronto which, Heyliger says, "has a
much better team than Minnesota."
This series will be highlighted by
the fact that both teams boast per-
fect records thus far this season.
Michigan is credited with 11 straight
wins, while the Blues have defeated.
their opponents six consecutive
times.
Vying for scoring honors will be
Gord MacMillan, leading goal-getter
for Michigan, and Bob Halder, who
has the sensational record of marking
four tallies in each game.
Heyliger, as in the past, will be
able to place three forward lines on
the ice. The starting combination
for the Wolverines will be Wally
Gacek center, and wings Walt
Grant and Neil Celley, alternating
with MacMillan, Al Renfrew, and
Bill Jacobson. On the third trio
are Karl Sulentich, Chet Kuznier,
and Bob Arnot with Sam Steadman
and Dick Starrack in reserve.
In the defense positions will be
Captain Connie Hill and Clem Cos-
salter interchanging with Bob Mar-
shall and Ross Smith. As usual, Jack
Maclnnes will guard the nets for the
Maize and 'Blue.
Toronto's rink is smaller than the
Coliseum, and Heyliger believes that
this will hamper the team's skating
by reducing its speed, but the Wolver-
ine coach said that the squad will
give the Blues a tough battle.
After the 1939-40 season, Toronto
suspended intercollegiate athletics

because of the war, but that year
the club established the record of
21 consecutive triumphs. This year's
sextet, whose coach is Ace Bailey,
former Toronto Maple Leaf's men-
tor, is noted for having hard, fast
skaters, and rugged defensemen.
Michigan has not yet been able to
chalk up a win over the Canadian
club. The two squads first met in
1937 with single games the following
two years, and the Blues took all
three by respective scores of 4-2, 3-2,
and 4-2.
Belmont Stakes
To Bfe Revived
NEW YORK, Jan. 24-OP)--A total
of 110 three-year-olds, headed by
Mrs. Elizabeth Graham's Running
Rodeo, were nominated today for the
1946 renewal of the Belmont Stakes,
giving promise that the new gold-fin-
ishing job done on racing's triple
crown will bring the thoroughbreds
out in herds for the big bankrolls.
Like the Kentucky Derby and
Preakness, the Belmont has been
upped to $100,000-added this year.

Wolverine Cage'
Squad To Meet
Ohio State Five
Quintet Out for Fourth
Conference Victory
Despite the absence of Arnie
"Stilts" Risen the Ohio State basket-
ball squad's recent performances indi-
cate little change in the Buckeyes'
scoring talent, which points to a
rough time for Michigan's quintet to-
morrow night when it takes on the
Columbus invaders at Yost Field
House.
Earlier this season OSU toppled
a high-riding Wolverine five, 57-40,
as Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's men,
unable to find themselves, turned in
the poorest performance of the sea,-
son. However, with the loss of
Risen somewhat effecting the
Buckeyes' power, and a definite im-
provement in Michigan team play,
according to Oosterbaan, the Wol-.
verines have their sights definitely.
set on scoring an upset over the fa-
vored visitors.
Although Indiana registered a 67-
58 win over Michigan last Monday, a
definite improvement was noted in
Maize and Blue team play. "It was
pretty hard to lose that one," Ooster-
baan commented. "The boys were
playing great ball, working together
like a well-oiled machine. But they
weren't able to get their eyes on the
basket and missed a lot of important
shots."
Consequently, emphasis is being
placed on more accurate shooting
this week, in preparation for a
comeback against the Scarlet and
Grey. A Wolverine victory tomor-
row would raise Michigan's aver-
age to .500 in Western Conference
competition, since Oosterbaan's
men have won three and lost four
matches to date.
When the starting whistle blows,
Michigan will be represented by the
usual varsity lineup of Glen Selbo at
center, John Mullaney and Bob Har-
rison at the forwards, and Dave
Strack and Pete Elliott in the guard
positions.

Although the track teams in the
Big Ten won't swing into action for
another week, it seems certainnthat
the race for the team title in the In-
door Championships to be held six
weeks from now will be a free-for-all
between Purdue, Illinois and Michi-
gan.
Many Veterans
All three schools will have a nu-
cleus of veteran performers around
which to build a strong team. At
present Michigan has .14 lettermen,
Illinois seven, and Purdue six and the
Illini expect two key men back from
the wars before the beginning of next
semester.

NBA Official
Plugs for G1
Ring Tourney
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, (P)-A
National Boxing Association official
today proposed a "GI plan" to break
what he termed a monopoly of the
professional game held by "the Old
Fight Gang", principally in New York.
Col. Harvey L. Miller, NBA execu-
tive secretary and former president,
said in a statement that professional
boxing's "Big post-war hope was for
ex-GI fighters and ex-GI managers
to end this closed corporation of the
same old names."
Elaborating in an interview, he
suggested that the American Legion
or some other Veterans' Organization
conduct "One whale of a GI tourna-
ment for all eight weight classes
and bring out fighters developed in
the armed forces during the war."

Purdue in its time trials held last
week has shown itself to be compara-
ble as a team to the Maize and Blue
aggregation. The Boilermakers are
especially strong in the field events
and the middle distances. Just how
strong an entry will represent the In-
diana institution will be seen here on
Feb. 2, the date of the season opener
for both schools.
From pre-season reports the Illini
will be almost as strong as they were
last year when they took the Outdoor
Championships and finished one
point behind the Wolverines Indoors.
The loss to graduation of Bob Kel-
ley, Conference and National half
mile title holder, is the only serious
replacement Coach Leo Johnson has
to worry about.
Back again willbe George Walker,
indoor and outdoor Big Ten hurdles
titlist, Bill Buster, Conference indoor
dash champion, Bill Cooley, Marce
Gonzalez, Joe H'ayes, Bob Phelps, and
Stan Sprague.
Cooley Top Hurdler
Cooley was a promising hurdler
last year while Hayes and Gonzalez
ran in the 440. Phelps was NCAA
pole vault champion last year.
Sprague, a shot putter, completes his
Navy training next month and may
not be around for the Conference
Meet.
Walker, in addition to his four Big
Ten titles, won two in the NCAA meet
of last year. It will be Walker who
will give Wolverine Elmer Swanson
the most trouble in regaining his ti-
tles in the hurdle events.
The veterans expected momentar-
ily are Bob Rehberg, whom Coach
Ken Doherty describes as a "great
middle distance runner," and Dyke
Eddleman a high jumper.
