Wrestlers Face
Badger Squad
In Third Match
Coach Keen To Take
Nine Men to Madison
Michigan's 1946 varsity wrestling
squad will entrain this afternoon at
1:31 for Madison to engage the Wis-
consin matmen in the third match of
tlire season Saturday night after the
Badger-Michigandbasketball game in
the Wisconsin Field House.
The grapplers will take on the
Badgers with the hopekof breaking
their .500 percentage, which include
a 17-11 victory over Purdue and a
defeat, 18-8, at the hands of the
Hoosiers. The Badgershave one win
to their credit by virtue of their re-
cent 25-11 victory over an outclassed
Chicago team.
Nine Make Trip
Nine wrestlers instead of the usual
eight will journey to Madison, fo
Coach Cliff Keen is taking along twc
175-pounders, George Chiames and
Ward Peterson. Keen isn't sure as yet
who will be the starter in the light-
heavyweight class, but both men hav
had a chance to show what they could
do, Chiames in the Indiana meet, and
Peterson in the Purdue contest.
The only other change in the start-
ing lineup will be in the 145-pound
class, where Maurice Smith, who
hasn't seen any Big Ten competition
yet, will get his first assignment Sat-
urday night._
The Wolverines' two undefeated
wrestlers, Captain Bill "Corky"
Courtright and Jim Stark will try to
extend their winning streaks to three
a piece. Each man has gained a fall
and a decisive decision in their re-
spective divisions, 165-pound and the
121-pound classes.
Allred, Smith, Dworsky To Start
The rest of the card for Michigan
includes the men that Keen has used
in all preceding matches to date
John Allred will appear at his accus-
tomed spot in the 128-pound bracket.
while Wayne Smith again will be in
the starting lineup. Navy trainee Stu
Snyder gets the call of the 155-pound
division, while Dan Dworsky will
compete for the Maize and Blue in
the u'limited class:
There is little information known
about the Wisconsin team save for
its lonr victory over Chicago, and
therefore Keen's charges will not
know the ability of their opponents
until they meet them on the mats of
the Badger's field house Saturday

favor the Wolverines.
State beat Northwestern, 51-33,
while Michigan turned the trick by
47-34. The Spartans whipped Pur-
due last Friday, 57-27. Saturday the
Wolverines turned back the Boiler-
makers, 49-32.
Michigan Favored On Time Basis
Taking comparative times as a'
basis, the Michigan State swimmers
will rule favorites in only one event,
the 150-yard backstroke where Spar-
tan Howie Patterson holds forth. Pat-
terson beat Wolverine Willard Met-
calf in December and figures to re-
peat tomorrow.
In the freestyle sprints State will
depend on Ziggy Indyke, Jim Quigley
and Abel Gilbert. Against Illinois
Quigley swam the 50-yard race in
:24.6 while Indyke won against Pur-
due last week with :24.5. Wolverines
Dick Weinberg and Charlie Fries
have both done under :24. flat.
Gilbert won the 100-yard freestyle
against the Wildcats in :55 while
Quigley turned in , a :55.3 against
Purdue. Both Fries and Weinberg
have done better than :53. and the
Wolverine freshman clocked a :52.4
last week.
Gilbert Double Threat
Gilbert also offers the Michigan
State threat in the 220-yard freestyle
event where he'll oppose Matt Mann,

;ance is 2:16.1, made against Purdue
last week while Mann churned to a

The 440-yard freestyle should go
to Mann whose best time of 4:55.1 is

be one of the best of the night. Bob
Sohl of the Wolverines holds an edge.

3ohl's best time for the 200-yard dis-
tance is 2:31 while Seibold had a

Zanja, Gil Evans and Ralph Trim-

College-Pro Relations
Michigan Baseball Coach R a y
Fisher will leave for New York today
to represent the American Association
)f College Baseball Coaches in a
mneeting with top officials of pro-
essional baseball at which both par-

Among the issues up for discussion
will be the question of professional
dubs signing college players while

expressed great dissatisfaction with
present Major League practices in

ace, will be on hand in tomorrow's triangular track meet at Yost Field
DohertyReva Michigan Entry
To Meet Buckeye, PurdueThreat

Michigan will field a strong but
revamped entry in the triangular
track meet between Michigan, Ohio
State and Purdue to be held at 7:30
p.m. tomorrow at the Yost Field
Yesterday. Wolverine coach Ken
Doherty announced, -that he had
switched Archie Parsons from his
position in the 880 yard and mile ruis
to the quarter mile and mile relay
to strengthen that department.
Birdsall To Lead Team
At the same time Doherty an-
nounced that Chuck Birdsall, Big
Ten Indoor two mile title holder;
would be acting co-captain for the
first meet. Birdsall will replace Dick
Forrestal, who is on active duty over-
seas with the United S;ates Navy.
Parson's switch was caused by the
fact that with the exception of Bill
Haidler, none of the other regular,
prospects in the quartermile have
rounded into form. Parsons ran in
this event at numerous occasions last
year and will not be doing something
he hasn't done before. Haidler will
be the other Michigan entry in the
440 yard run.
Voegtlen Shows Improvement
Birdsall, who will graduate from
the N.R.O.T.C. unit at the end of the
semester will be gunning for his sec-
ond straight two-mile title. Dean
Voegtlen, who has "improved remark-
ably in the past three weeks" accord-
ing to the thinclads' mentor, will
greatly add to the Maize and Blue's
point chances in the long grind.
Michigan's strongest entry may
very well be in the high hurdles. El-
mer Swanson, Neil Mac Intyre, and
Hack Coplin are all veteran hurdlers.
The three men are all ex-servicemen
and have been having slight difficulty
with pulled muscles and tendons, and
therefore may not be in the peak of
condition tomorrow night.
MSC To Hold
EAST LANSING, Jan. 31-()-
Top track and field talent from the
midwest will be on hand at the
Michigan State relays Feb. 9. at
Michigan State College, Spartan
track coach Karl A. Schlademan pre-
dicted today in announcing 'a list of
preliminary entries.
With the meet still more than a
week away 122 entries from only
three schools have been received,
Schlademan said.

Swanson and MacIntyre are letter-
men from previous Wolverine cinder
squads while Coplin ran for Arkansas
Babtist before his service in the
The mile run will see Bob Thoma-
son, Herb Barten and Dave Hess run-
iing for the Wolverines. Thomason
is .a 17 year old Sophomore who will
double in the half mile. He ran on
last years squad in both events and
has caused his coach to comment,
"Bob is coming along rapidly."
Barten is in his first year at Mich-
igan and will be running in his, first
collegiate meet tomorrow. Last year
he was interscholastic mile champion
in Chicago. Hess, the third member
of the trio, will also be running his
first race for the Maize and Blue.
Johnson, Swain To Se Action
The dash will see two men and
maybe three running with the block
"M" on their shirts. Val Johnson
and Bob Swain are certain to run,
while Julian Witherspoon may run
if his condition permits.
In the half mile there will be, in
addition to Thomason, Joe Shea and
Chuck McFadden, both newcomers to
the Wolverine track scene.
Bob Harris will be the high jumper
on the Michigan squad while Chuck
Lauritsen will do the pole vaulting..
John Larsen will also be seen in the
high jump. Chuck Fonville, George
Ostroot and George Artley will com-
pete in the shot put.
Fraternities To0
Run Of fRelays
Although there probably will be no
Field-House records broken, there
should be a lot of the "old college
try" displayed when four fraternities
hook up in an 880-yard relay race
tomorrow night.
The race will be one of the events
at the triangular meet in which
Michigan plays host to Ohio State
and Purdue. These four teams, repre-
senting Alpha Tau Omega, Sigma
Chi, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and Theta
Delta Chi posted the best times in
a qualifying meet held among all
fraternities last week. Top qualifying
time was 1:43.4 by Sigma Chi.

Cagers Out
To Humble
Wolverines Seek
Fifth B FitTeel Wi ]
Michigan's twelve-man traveling
zasketball squad will entrain at 1:30
).m. today for Madison, where it is
scheduled to clash with Wisconsin
omorrow night on the floor of the
Badgers' Field House.
"We'll go after them," stated head
Wolverine cage coach Bennie Ooster-
baan, "but it's going to be a tough
battle," he added. Although the
Green and White five have failed to
win a Conference match thus far
they have only been defeated by scant
margins. League-leading Minnesota
had a rough time ekeing out a one-
point win over Wisconsin, while
second-place Iowa, last year's . Big
Ten champs, defeated it by a mere
seven points.
Michigan hopes to override the
vaunted Badger might with its 'vet-
eran starting quintet composed of
Glen Selbo at center, John Mullaney
and Bob Harrison at the forwards,
and Dave Strack and Pete Elliott in
charge of the guard assignments.
In addition, Oosterbaan is taking
Bob Baker, Walt Kell, Marty Fein-
berg, Hal Westerman, Bill Dietrich,
Gordon Rosencrans, and Bill Walton
with him.
On the Wisconsin side of the ledger
the varsity five will probably read
Jim Bloor at center, Eugene Mathews
and Richard Bunke at the forwards,
and Kurt Grimm and Bob Cook in
the guard slots. Exserviceman Bob
Haarlow, 6 ft. 6 in. center, and Exner
Menzel, 23-year-old forward m a y
possibly wind up in starting berths.
At any rate it is reported that Badger
Coach Harold (Bud) Foster intends
to show these cagers lenty of action.
If the Wolverines defeat the Wis-
consin team tomorrow night their
record will stand at five Conference
games won, as against four lost. They
have previously downed Illinois, Chi-
cago, Northwestern, and Ohio State,
while Indiana beat them twice and
Ohio State and Northwestern bested
them earlier in the season.
Michigan Five
Leads Big Ten.
hI Totl Points
By virtue of last Saturday's sizzling
performance against Ohio S t a t e,
Michigan's hot and cold cagers are
now leading the Big Ten in total
scoring and boast three of the top

The Wolverine quintet has pumped
430 points through the nets in eight
games for a 53.8 average, an amazing
total for a .500 team. Only Minne-
sota has a better average, 58.6, but

Defensively Oosterbaan's men don't
measure up to their fine offensive
record. Though they've been able to
stop scoring stars like Max Morris
of Northwestern, Bob Doster of Illi-
nois, and Jack Underman of Ohio
State, they rank sixth in defense with
a 48 point average. Illinois and
Northwestern lead in this depart-
ment with 40 and 44.5 point averages

Michigan, Minnesota Renew
Hockey Series at Minneapolis
Wolverines Gluuingi for First Clean Sweep
Over Golden Gopher Puckm en Since 1931-

Aiming for its second double win
over the Minnesota sextet, Michigan's
hockey team has a chance to break
another record when it encounters
the Gophers tonight and tomorrow at
By taking both tilts, the Wolverines
will have brought their total number
of triumphs up to 14, surpassing the
record established by the 1937-38
pucksters of 13 victories for a single
season. Also, if Coach Vic Heyliger's
charges can come out on top tonight
A member of the Michigan
Daily sport staff is in Minncopolis
covering the two Michigan-Min-
nesota hockey games. The Daily
will carry reports of the tilts to-
morrow and Sunday.
they will have captured the Big Ten
hockey title, and if they conquer the
Northmen twice it will be the first
time since 1931 that this feat has
been accomplished.
15 Players Make Trip
Heyliger selected 15 players to
make the trip, including 10 forwards,
four defensemen, and one goalie.
Michigan's first line of Wally Gacek,
Neil Celley, and Walt Grant will
probably start the game, and inter-
change with the number two trio of
Bill Jacobson, Al Renfrew, and Gord
MacMillan. There is a possibility that
Renfrew will be sidelined because of
a pulled leg muscle, and in that case
Captain Connie Hill will switch from
his defense position and fill in for
In reserve, Michigan will have a
third front wall consisting of Bob
Arnot, Karl Sulentich, Dick Starrak,

or Sam Steadman. If Hill plays de-
fense then he will pair with Clem
Cossalter and alternate with Bob
Marshall and Ross Smith. Jack Mac-
Innes will tend the nets for the puck-
Wclverines Expect Tough Series
Michigan's hockey team expects a
stiffer series than the one which was
held here on Jan. 18 and 19, and the
Maize and Blue puck mentor summed
it up by saying, "Minnesota is a tough
t eam to beat anytime, let alone when
it is playing on home, ice." Before
leaving for Minneapolis, Heyliger put
the squad through some drills, stress-
ing defense tactics and shooting.'
Leading the Wolverine pucksters in
scering is MacMillan was has bagged
20 markers up to date. Right on his
heels with 19 goals is Grant followed
by Renfrew who has crashed the op-
ponents' nets for 13 tallies.
