Swimmers To Clash
With Unbeaten Spartans
State Seeks First Vic
Fries, Weinberg, Ma
By CLARK BAKER
Looking for its fourth straight tri-
umph, Michigan's swimming team
will invade East Lansing to clash with
Michigan State's unbeaten natators
today at Jenison Fieldhouse.
MSC Seeks Initial Win
Coach Charley McCaffree's Spar-
tan outfit will be seeking its initial
win over a Michigan swimming team.
The Wolverines have won every meet,
17 in all, between the schools since
the long series began back in 1922.
The last Wolverine-Spartan meet was
held in 1942, Michigan winning,
The Maize and Blue will again be
cast in the role of favorite. Strength
in the freestyle events may keep the
State squad from gaining its first win
over Coach Matt Mann's men. With
such stalwarts as letterman Charley
Fries, Dick Weinberg and Matt Mann,
III, Michigan will be favored to take
all four freestyle races.
Mann To Swim 220
Mann may get a stiff battle in the
220 when he tackles the Spartans' un-
defeated freestyler, Abel Gilbert. Gil-
bert gained firsts in the 100, 220 and
440 against Purdue last week, turn-
ing in a 2:16.1 forathe 220. Charley
Moss will probably team with Mann
in the 220 with Neville Adams join-
ing the Maize and Blue distance star
in the 440.
Weinberg and Fries will probably
get the call in the 50 and 100, oppos-
ing State's Ziggy Indyke, Jim Quig-
ley, Jim Thomas and Gilbert. The
tory over Wolverines;
nn Favored in Freestyle
Wolverines will also have Dave Tittle,
Chuck Barnes, Lou Kivi and Jay San-
ford for the freestyle events.
Patterson Favored In Backstroke
The Spartans' state outdoor AAU
backstroke king, Howie Patterson,
will be favored in the 150-yard back-
3troke race. To pit against the Spar-
tan ace, Mann will have Willard Met-
;alf, Ed Stone and Art Johnson.
The 200-yard breast stroke will
probably provide plenty of fireworks
when Wolverines Bob Sohl and Heini
Kessler meet State's Paul Seibold.
Sohl has turned in the best times of
the trio but Kessler has shown great
improvement and may win out.
Dunbar Threatens In Diving
Alex Canja will be out to keep his
perfect diving record intact against
the Spartans tonight. His chief op-
position will probably come from
teammates Gil Evans aond Ralph
Trimborn all of whom beat State's
number one diver, Don Dunbar, here
last month. Dunbar has shown great
improvement, though, and may come
through against the Wolverines.
To get off to a winning start Mann
will probably send his strongest med-
ley relay team against the Spartans.
Metcalf, Bob Matters and eithr Fries
or Weinberg comprise the Wolverines'
top trio. The Michigan quartet for
the 400-yard freestyle relay will prob-
ably depend on the outcome of the
events preceding it on the program.
If the Wolverines have a good lead,
Mann may not call on his top team.

By DILL MULLENDORE, Sports Editor
PATIENCE, say the philosophers, is a virtue. And virtue, according to
the moralists, is rewarded.
Well, we have been patiently awaiting the long delayed debut of the
1946 Michigan track team. And we have a feeling that tonight's triangu-
lar tangle involving the Wolverines, Purdue, and Ohio State will be well
worth the wait.
Michigan has a nation-wide reputation for turning out winning
track teams. The reputation bears up well under the scrutiny of the
Since Ken Doherty, genial Wolverine cinder coach, took over as chief
tutor of the Michigan thinclads in 1940, his teams have won eight of a
possible 14 Western Conference championships, both indoors and outdoors.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is dominating the field with a vengeance.
From all the advance dope we have been able to gather, Doherty has
whipped into shape still another squad with definite championship
possibilities. It is yet a little early to go out on a limb, but we fully ex-
pect to see Michigan fighting for titular honors come the Big Ten indoor
We rather imagine the Wolverines will win tonight's affair, although
Purdue has the potential to make it close. Ohio State doesn't figure to be
much of a threat, but will take points away from the other two contenders.
BUT IT SHOULD be an interesting meet, none-the-less. At least one
Yost Field House record will probably go by the board, 'when Purdue's
Bill Bangert steps up to the shot put line.
Winning times and distances in other events may shatter no records,
but competition figures to be keen all along the line. The quarter-mile,
the 60-yard dash, both the high and low hurdles, the two-mile, and possi-
bly some others stack un as thrilling races.
Earlier in the week, we warned our reader(s) not to be surprised to
hear Bangert, who divides his time between breaking shot put records and
preparing for an operatic career, give out with his voice sometime during
the evening's proceedings. The warning was well-advised. Bangert, we
understand, will demonstrate his virtuosity as part of the program.
Just to make things interesting and add some variety to the enter-
tainment, four fraternity half-mile relay teams will show their stuff be-
tween the running of the 440-yard dash and the high hurdles. Don't
look for any records, but competition should be at a peak.
All in all, it should be a worthwhile evening. As we said in the be-
ginning, we imagine it has been well worth waiting for.

In the mile event, Michigan will
have Bob Thomason, Herb Barten
and Dave Hess entered against Ash-
ley Hawk and Dick Blanchard of
Purdue and Bill Clifford and Jimmie
Smith of Ohio State. Thomason is
one of the outstanding sophomores
on the Wolverine squad, while Hawk
was the outstanding distance man on
last year's Boilermaker squad.
Veteran Hurdlers To Compete
Four men will represent Michigan
in the high hurdles. Elmer Swanson,
Neil MacIntyre and Hack Coplin ar
all veteran hurdlers. But Wallington
is the fourth Michigan entry in the
event. Ed Crook, Joe Kennedy and
Paul Gutting will run for Purdue
while Ohio State will have Bill Sei-

Murphy, and Lowell Shiray.
Bill Haidler and Archie Parsons
will represent the Wolverines in the
quarter-mile. Parsonsrhas nbeen

Weber was Indiana collegiate
champion in the event last year. Pur-

Michigan's wrestling team will be
aiming for its second consecutive vic-
tory in as many weeks when the grap-
plers tangle with the Wisconsin mat-
men tonight after the Michigan-Wis-
consin basketball game in the Badg-
ers' Field House at Madison.
Badgers Have Two Wins
The wrestlers will be out to better
the .500 percentage they have accum-
ulated so far this season with a 17-11
victory over Purdue and an 18-8 de-
feat suffered in the first meet of the
season with Indiana.
The Wisconsin squad has wrestled
in competition for a week this year
and has two victories under its belt.
Last Saturday they conquered the
Chicago Maroons by a score of 25-11
and followed with a 20-11 conquest
of Nebraska Monday night. The Chi-
cago match produced five falls.
Smith To Face Viskocil'
The only new addition to the head-
liners is Maurice Smith who will
probably wrestle in the 145-pound
class. He will face Eddie Viskocil, a
veteran, who was national AAU
champion before his departure for
service. Thus far this season Visko-
cil has two straight victories to his
Wayne Smith, who has alternated
between the 136- and 145-pound di-
visions will go in the lighter class to-
night. He will be trying for his sec-
ond successive victory and is opposed
by Don Hoff,who has a record of one
victory, a pin, and a loss to his Ne-
Stark, Courtright Undefeated
Jim Stark, undefeated in two starts,
will again get the call in the 121-

Bill Robinson who boasts a record of
one victory as against one defeat,
Michigan's other undefeated contes-
tant is the mainstay and captain of
the Wolverine aggregation, Bill
(Corky) Courtright. His foe, Tony
Barbaro, Wisconsin 165-pounder, is
also undefeated and this match is li-
able to be the best one of the eve-
At 128 pounds, John Allred will
again be at his accustomed post to
meet his Wisconsin opponent, Bob
Spicuzza. Both men have one and
one records. Michigan's Stu Snyder
will face Dave Netteheim, the Badger
155-pound entry, who is undefeated
in this season's competition.
Starter Not Chosen
Keen will not be sure of his starter
in the 175-pound class until the time
of the match. Both George Chiames
and Ward Peterson made the trip to
Madison, and Gene Johnson, Wis-
consin ex-gridder, will meet either
Chiames or Peterson in the light-

Conference Tilts in

Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's Mich-

of the season when it meets Wiscon-

Michigan drew first blood as Gacek
poked his first score past Gopher
goalie Ray McDermid at 7:08 of the
first period. Jerry Carley, famous
Minnestoa deaf athlete. tied it up at
16:23. Both goals were unassisted.
The Gophers moved out in front in
the second period as Dick Fleming
took a pass from Carley and beat
Wolverine netminder Jack MacInnes
at 15:07. Michigan clearly outplayed
its rivals in this period, but was un-
able to make its shots count.
Grant tied things up at 1:58 of the
final round with an unassisted goal,
but Joe Tergeson put Minnesota back
into the lead with still another un-
assisted tally three minutes later.
Gacek and Clem Cossalter combined
for Michigan's third, and final, tally
at 7:04, with Gacek getting the goal.
That ended the scoring, but not
the excitement. The Wolverines blew
several golden opportunities in the
dying moments of regulation play
and during the entire overtime, car-
rying the fight to their foes consis-
The deadlock meant the mythi-
cal Western Conference champion-
ship for Michigan, but cost them a
chance to gain their first four-game
sweep over the Gophers since 1931.
