'Thirty-Four Man Thinclad Squad
To Enter 24th Annual M.S.C. Relays


Fourteen Se boo Is
To Send A thletes
Michigan's cindermen, primed by
their recent victory over Purdue and
Ohio State, are setting their sights
for the 24th annual Michigan State
Relays to be held Saturday at East
Fourteen midwestern schools have
entered men in the meet which
promises to be one of the highlights
of the 1946 indoor season. This is
the second time that the event has-
been planned on such a large scale,
having first made its appearance on
the track scene in 1942.
No Team Title
There will be no team champion-
ship title on the block Saturday for
the laurels will be distributed among
the winners of the individual events.
However, the Relays will undoubted-
Short's Arrival
Will Strengthen
Cinder Squad
Michigan's track team's weakest
department, the 440-yard dash and
mile relay, received a shot in the arm
yesterday when it was announced
that one of the finest quarter-milers
in* the country, Hugh Short, had
joined the squad.
Short, former Georgetown track
star, has enrolled in the School of
Journalism and will soon become a
valuable addition to the 1946 Wolv-
erine indoor track squad.
Has Outstanding Record
Short was inter-collegiate champ
in the 440 yard dash in 1944 with an
outdoor mark of :47.2. In 1942, he
won the 600 yard run at the Mellrose
Games when he set a new American
indoor record of 1:10.2 which has
not been bettered since.
An army veteran, Short spent 19
months with the 85th division in
Italy where he saw quite a bit of
action. While in Italy, Short com-
peted in the Army Games held in
Florence last summer where he won
the 400 meter dash with a time of
Has Been Working Out
Short has been working out down
at the Field house for the past few
weeks, and Coach Ken Doherty hopes
to have him in shape for the Illinois
meet which is scheduled for Febru-
ary 23.
Doherty plans to enter Short in
his specialty event, the 440. However,
he might also use him in the half-
mile. Short ran the half in high
school where his best time was 1:58.5.

ly be dominated by entrants from
Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State
and M. S. C.
Coach Ken Doherty has announced
that he is taking a full squad of 34
men with him to East Lansing, Sat-
urday. This will be one of the largest
groups of Wolverine competitors
ever carried to a meet of this nature.
Distance Events Best
The distance events will probably
offer the hottest competition of the
meet. In the mile and two mile runs
Michigan's Chuck Birdsall, Confer-
ence two-mile title-holder, and Bob
Thomason will be battling it out
with Notre Dame's ace distance man,
Bill Leonard.
The mile relay should also prove
to be a very closely contested event
with sharp competition expected
from Michigan State. Mary Fraser,
of the Spartan relay team, finished

10 odd yards ahead of the Ohio State
anchor man in a dual meet held
last week, while the Wolverine relay
team beat the Buckeyes by almost
the exact same margin last Saturday
In the pole vault, Wolverine en-
trants Chuck Lauritsen and Warren
Bentz are expecting quite a bit of
trouble from Northwestern's Bill
Moore who has already vaulted over
14 feet this year.
Swain Seeks Revenge
Michigan's number one sprinter,
Bob Swain, will be out for revenge
when he again faces Carl Baynard
of Ohio State in the dash. Baynard
just barely nosed Swain out in the
60 yard dash last Saturday night.
The field events will also feature
some stellar performers. In the shot
put, the outstanding competitors will
be Chuck Fonville and George Os-
troot of Michigan.

Illinois Cagers
Await Michigan
Wolverines To Seek
Second Win over Mini
Illinois' basketball team will have
another crack at Michigan's squad
this Saturday when Coach Dennie
Oosterbaan takes his men to Cham-1
paign for the second of a home-and-
home series with the fightin' Illini.
The Illinois quintet will be battling
to avenge a last-minute 49-48 defeat
administered to them by an underdog
Wolverine crew when the two teams
met a month ago. Doug Mills, Illinois
basketball mentor, plans to start the
same five that led off against the
Maize and Blue in the first meeting.
Menke Starts At Center
Bob Menke will probably be at
center, Walt Mroz and Bob Doster
at the forwards, and Jack Burmaster
and George Leddy at the guards.
Mroz copped high-scoring honors
for both teams, with 21 points, in the
last engagement. He was followed by
Michigan's Glen Selbo, who racked
up 17.
Van Anderson, who garnered seven
points against the Wolverine aggre-
gation as substitute center will prob-
ably see a great deal of action in
Saturday's tilt, along with Illini al-
ternate guard, Jim Seyler. Seyler is
the Orange and Black's smallest man,
measuring 5 ft. 11 in.
Win Means .500
The Wolverine Conference record
now stands at four wins as against
five losses. Another victory over Illi-
nois would again raise the Maize and
Blue's average to .500.
33 Irish Thiuelads
Enter M.S.C. Relays
EAST LANSING, Feb. 5-(/P)-With
the arrival of a 33-man entry from
Notre Dame, the field of 210 was com-
pleted for the annual Michigan State
Relays to be staged in the Jenison
Field House Saturday night.
Michigan, Notre Dame, Michigan
State, and Ohio State will be repre-"
sented by full squads, while Wayne,
Detroit, Loyola, Northwestern, Kan-
sas and Western Michigan have en-1
tered partial squads.

Wanna go crazy?
All right, just try to pick the winners of the half dozen major basket-
ball games scheduled for any week-end. We guarantee a hopeless case of
dementia praecox in three weeks-or less.
As an aid to the forecaster who would preserve his sanity, however,
we have devised a system. First, forget all about personnel, past per-
formances, comparative scores, and all the other usual yardsticks .of the
Second, decide which of the two contending teams has no chance at
all to win. Third, pick the other one. The odds are all in your favor.
To demonstrate how well our system works, we call attention to the re-
sults of three of the Mid-West's top cage attractions billed for last Satur-
day night. Heading the list was the Northwestern-Notre Dame clash, fol-
lowed by the Purdue-Minnesota fracas and the Michigan-Wisconsin duel.
Notre Dame stood at the top of the nation's basketball heap, unde-
feated, with what the experts called "one of the greatest teams in court
history". Northwestern was just a so-so aggregation. Who won? North-
western, of course.
MINNESOTA was hailed as the probable Western Conference champion.
The Gophers had lost one game, a 63-61 overtime decision to Iowa,
defending Big Ten Titlists, but were expected to have little trouble with
in-and-out Purdue. When the score was added up, though, Minnesota was
on the short end, 65-40.
Wisconsin had lost ten straight games, and hadn't come ,close to win-
ning a Conference tilt. Michigan had finally gotten the kinks ironed out
in a smashing triumph over Ohio State the week before and was favored
to finish the season in a blaze of victories. Wisconsin won, 58-57.
Nor was the last week-end unusual. Favorites have been taking it
on the chin ever since the season opened two months ago. We cannot re-
call any campaign in any sport which has provided so many surprising
and totally unexpected upsets.
About the only consistent five in the Mid-West has been Chicago. True
to the Maroons' very best form, they have dropped every Big Ten game on
their schedule, running their Conference losing streak to 55 straight. But
we wouldn't be too surprised to see even Chicago turn the tables some night
and beat somebody. Anything can-and does-happen in the basketball
world these days.

Whether Michigan's sextet will be1
able to stop the University of Toron-
to's powerful hockey juggernaut this
Friday and Saturday will depend a]

who will be moved up to one of the
first two lines in the event that the
ailing Renfrew can't play.
great deal on whether Al Renfrew,
speedy Wolverine left winger, will be
able to play against the Blues.
Renfrew suffered a broken wrist
at Minneapolis last Friday while the

Maize and Blue puckmen were bat-
tling the Gophers to a 3 all tie. Mon-
day, however, the scrappy youngster
was at practice with the squad, with,
his wrist in a cast.
Nothing Known Yet
If the cast does not affect his stick-
handling and shooting there is a good
chance that Renfrew will see action.
Nothing will be known definitely un-
til game time Friday.
Teaming with center Gord Mac-
Millan and right wingman, Bill
Jacobson, Renfrew has scored 13
goals and is the leading playmaker
on the squad with 20 assists. His
total of 33 points for the season is
second only to MacMillan who leads
the Wolverine scoring with 40.
Heyliger Juggles Lineup
Coach Vic Heyliger has been ex-
perimenting with a revamped line-
up in practice this week, switching
centers MacMillanand Wally Gacek
on the first two lines. Heyliger hopes
to both add scoring punch to the
Wolverine attack in this move and
also perfect a defense against To-
ronto's threats Wally Halder and Bill
Chet Kuznier may be moved from
his slot as wing on the third line up
to one of the two forward trio's in
the event that Renfrew isn't up to
par. That would leave Sam Stead-
man and Karl Sulentich flanking
Bob Arnot.
Sextet Seeks 13th Win
Michigan will again be trying for
its 13th win of the season. After
piling up 11 straight victories the
puckmen were twice stopped by the
Blues in Toronto on Jan. 25 and 26
by scores of 9-3 and 7-5.
In the second contest the Wolv-
erines had a four goal lead but were
defeated by a great closing rally.
Heyliger's crew will be striving to
even the score with the Toronto ag-
gregation this week-end.
MacPhail Balks At
Chandler's Ruling
NEW YORK, Feb. 5-( P)-Presi-
dent Larry MacPhail of the New
York Yankees quoted the rule book
to Commissioner A. B. (Happy)
Chandler today and told him he was
out of order in criticizing any in-
crease in baseball admission prices.
After MacPhail had announced an
average increase of 7%/2 per cent in
Yankee Stadium seat prices for 1946,
Chandler was quoted as saying that
after the poorer wartime ball he
thought the public was entitled to a
better brand without paying more for

Matmen Face
Illinois Squad
On Sain'dawy
Illini Pre-War Stars
Strengthen Lineup
Michigan's wrestling team will face
one of its toughest opponents of the
season when the grapplers tangle
with the Illinois mat squad this Sat-
urday after the Michigan-Illini bas-
ketball game in Huff Gym in Cham-
Illinois, being between semesters,
will get the benefit of several mat-
men returning to the campus of the
Orange and Blue for their next quar-
ter. These athletes include some new-
comers and other war veterans.
Illini Have National Champ
Included in the list are Lou Kach-
iroubas, who was National AAU
champion at 128 pounds from Chi-
cago; Norman Anthonisen, 165-pound
Big Ten Conference champion in
1942, who will now wrestle at 175
pounds; and Ken Marlin who grap-
pled at 145 pounds for the Illini in
Bill Mann, freshman at 121 or 128
and Heavyweights Bob Wilson and
Chuck Gottfried are others who will
aid the Illinois wrestlers. Wilson.
who is a junior, competed in 1943 for
Illinois and earned the Big Ten
championship while a Marine trainee
at Purdue in 1944. Gottfried, a re-
turned veteran, is a 220-pound fresh-
man from East, St. Louis.
Keen To Use Same Lineup
Michigan's team, out to make it
three in a row, will probably use the
same lineup that beat Wisconsin, 19-
11, in Madison last Saturday accord-
ing to Coach Cliff Keen. The only
great possibility of a change is in the
175-pound class. Ward Peterson and
George Chiames have been alternat-
ing at this position througout the
season. Chiames startedragainst the
Badgers and wrestled well, but was
outpointed "by the Wisconsin team
captain, Tony Barbaros, in a very
close match. Practice sessions this
week will determine who will com-
pete in the lightheavyweight division
against Illinois.
Keen said that the team as a whole
looked good against Wisconsin, and
the score over a previously unde-
feated team bears out Keen's re-
marks. As most of the team was
inexperienced, their ability, to learn
to perform was exemplified in Mad-
ison last Saturday night.
