Natators Are Favored in Meet Michigan State
With Wayne University Squad Relays Slated
For Tomorrow

H oopsters Seek
Second Victory
Against Illinois

Wolverines Out To End
Toronto Winn ing Streak

Michigan's swimming team, winner
in its last four engagements, will go
after number five against Wayne
University's natators in an exhibition
meet at 8 p.m. today at the Sports
Building pool.
Not since dropping their opener
a month ago to Great Lakes have
the Maize and Blue swimmers
tasted defeat and the visiting
Wayne squad doesn't figure to cut
the Wolverines' string tonight.
The Tartars won their only start
last week from Case, 65-10.
Tonight's clash should give Coach
Matt Mann's outfit a good workout
in preparation for meets with Min-
nesota and Ohio State coming up in
the next three weeks. Wayne is
strong in two departments, the free-
style sprints and diving.
Bill Prew, former NCAA champ,
will represent the Tartars in the
50- and 100-yard freestyle events.
He will probably oppose Wolverine
Dick Weinberg in the 50 and Wolv-
erine Charley Fries in the 100.
Weinberg holds one decision over
:Prew. Last month he nipped the
Wayne ace to win the State AAU
50-yard freestyle event.
Michigan's unbeaten divers will get
their biggest test of the season
against the Tartar's star, Bob Gard-
ner. Not once this season have the
Wolverines had to yield a first spot
in the diving but the competition
hasn't been too sharp, either.
Tonight the Maize and Blue trio,
Alex Canja, Gil Evans and Ralph
Trimborn, will face their best op-
ponent so far this season in Gard-
ner. The Wayne diver has done
some good diving for the Detroit
Athletic Club and last year . he
reached the finals of the National
AAU meet.
Mann will probably give his entire
squad a chance to show off before
the home audience tonight. Chuck
Barnes and Lou Kivi may ,join Wein-
berg and Fries in the sprints. For
the 220- and 440-yard freestyle races
the Wolverine mentor will make his
choices from Matt Mann, III, Dave
Tittle, Charley Moss, Neville Adams
and Jay Sanford.

I I 'R- v R.. ° w a v v ar io ar v

To face the Tartars in the 200-
yard breast stroke the Maize and
Blue will have Bob Sohl, Captain
Heini Kessler, Bob Michels and
Fred Anderson. Wolverine entries
for the 150-yard backstroke will
come from Willard Metcalf, Ed.
Stone and Anderson.
In the 300-yard medley relay the
Michigan mentor will probably use
his top trio of Metcalf swimming
backstroke, Bob Matters in the breast
stroke with either Weinberg or Fries
for the freestyle leg. For his 400-
yard freestyle relay team Mann will
have Weinberg, Fries, Tittle, Moss,
Barnes, Mann and Kivi to choose

The Illini will be seeking revenge
Saturday at Champaign for the 48-47
defeat hung on them earlier this sea-
son by a fighting Wolverine quintet.
Since the last Illinois-Michigan
cage contest, Coach Doug Mills' five
has been strengthened considerably.
The return of Fred Green, 6 ft. 7 in.
freshman who was on the great Illi-
noi,; yearling squad of 1942-43, is par-
ticularly encouraging to Illini hoop
fans. Green was a member of the
famous Whiz Kids along with such
stars as Dike Eddleman, Junior Kirk
and the original Bob Menke of Illi-
nois basketball history.
Marks Returns
The second returning veteran whose
face is new to Michigan hoopmen this
season is Jim Marks, 6 ft. 2 in, for-
ward. Marks was a member of the
North-South Illinois All-Star squad
of 1944.
Both coaches seem to have a
healthy respect for each other's
charges. Bennie Oosterbaan has
termed Illinois as "one of the most
underrated hoop teams in the coun-
try." Coach Mills of the Illini calls
the Wolverines "one of the Big Ten's
best right now."
The return of Green to the Illi-
nois lineup has necessitated a few
shifts in the starting Champaign five.
Bob Menke, freshman, who. started
the season at center has been shifted
to forward vliilc Green has taken the
('enter slot.
Doster Leads Scorers
Along with Green, Illinois will place

Michigan, with a record of four
wins as against five losses stands sev-
enth in the conference. Illinois is
sixth. A Wolverine victory would en-
able Michigan to tie the Illini for
seventh spot in the Big Ten.

EAST LANSING, Feb. 7-- (IP) -
Tackling their fifth successive Wes-
tern Conference opponent Saturday
at the University of Wisconsin,
Michigan State College's once-beaten
swimming team will go after two
freshman national collegiate records,
Coach Charles McCaffree said to-
day as he readied his squad for the
trip to Madison.

With a capacity crowd assured for
what should prove to be Ann Arbor's
hockey series of the year, Coach Ace
Bailey and his fast-skating Toronto
Blues will invade the Coliseum ice at
8 p.m. tonight to battle the Michigan
sextet in the first of two games.
By virtue of two victories over
the Michigan puckmen in Toronto
two weeks ago, the Blues, unbeaten
in college opetition, will rate as
favorites, but Coach eyliger and
his crew are conceding nothing to
the visitors. Toronto won the first
contest 9-3, but the Wolverines
held a big edge for two periods in
the second encounter before being
defeated 7-5."
"If we play the same brand of
hockey against Toronto that we
played in those two periods, we should'

admitted, "and playing on our own
ice will also give us an advantage."
To win, the Wolverines must stop
the strong Toronto attack which is
led by Captain Wally Halder. Halder,
who has averaged close to four goals
a game for the Blues this season.
caused Michigan no little trouble in
Toronto, scoring six times against
the Wolverines.

it is not known just how much action
the speedster will see,
Bob Marshall, almost fully recov-
ered from a leg injury, and Ross
Smith will be the starting defense-
men, with Captain Connie Hill and
Clem Cossalter in reserve.
Michigan's second line will have
Wally Grant at left wing, Wally
Gacek at center, and Bill Jacobson
on the right flank. If Renfrew sees
only limited service, Chet Kuznier
will move up from the third line to
team with MacMillan and Jacobson.
Halder will center Toronto's first
combination, with Gord Ball and
Bob Henry as his wingmen. A sec-
ond trio that of Bauer, Kosick
and Jim Bromley.
Jack Maclnnes, who turned in a
great performance against Toronto
despite the Wolverines' losses, and
Dick Ball, also a great net-minder,
will again be the opposing goalies.
