Vse Tacticians Rocking
Michigan's arm chair basketball tacticians are in a muddle.
Last year the Wolverines led the league in total offense and finish-
vith a 6-6 record. This year the team is leading the Conference in
mnse, but has only a 5-6 record to show.

Latest victims of Ozzie Cowles
wizardry were Minnesota and its
big center Jim McIntyre. Both
the Golden Gophers and Big Jim
were leading the league in their
offensive department before they
came to Ann Arbor. Now Ralph
Hamilton of Indiana has replaced
the towering McIntyre as the in-
dividual leader and Minnesota has
skidded all the way down to fifth.
Purdue and Wisconsin now rate
one-two in this department.

GREEN BUT RIPENING:
Cowles Predicts Bright Cage
Future for Pivotman Roberts.
By NANCY KLING
"'Long .Bill" Roberts, Michigan's
number one basketball center, was
short on collegiate cage experience
when the current campaign got
underway, but with a complete
season behind him Coach Ozzie
Cowles expects big things of the
big man next year.
Bill hails from Harmon-on-the-
Hudson, New York, where he play-
ed three years of basketball for
Croton High School. Because of
his height, 6 ft. 7 in., he was na-
turally chosen for the center spot
where he's played during his en-
After graduating from Croton in
1942, Roberts came to Michigan.
As a freshman here he played
basketball until leaving for serv-
ice. A' second lieutenant, he was
sent to the China-Burma-India
theater where he worked in ordi-
nance supply. In Calcutta Bill
played basketball but under dif-
ferent conditions than at Michi-
gan. There the teams had to play
outside on a dirt court.
Bill is interested in all sports
but purely from a spectator's
viewpoint. He confines his parti-
cipation to the cage sport only,
because his height is a definite as-
set as a pivot man in basketball.
The big boy got that way from
hitting the bottle-milk bottle,
that is. One of his idiosyncracies
is downing four to five quarts of
milk a day.

WANTED: SIX MEN FOR
TRIP TO CALIFORNIA--ALL
APPLY TO COACH KEN
DOHERTY IMMEDIATELY AT
YOST FIELD HOUSE.
This is the golden opportun-
ity presented by the Wolverine
track coach to the men of
Michigan. The only qualifi-
cations for the job, declares the
cinder mentor, are good physi-
cal coordination, speedy legs,
desire to practice hard, and,
last but not least, eligibility.
The impetus for such an of-
fer is the imminent outdoor
dual meet scheduled with the
University of California at
Berkeley April 12. Included in
the list of events is one which
Michigan has not competed in
in years-the javelin throw.

conference competition around

University who has thrown the

ty maintains, "we will welcome

In addition to the javelin re-
quirements, the cinder squad
will also need sprinters, hurd-
lers, and broad jumpers. "Pre-
vious experience is not necess-
ary;" stresses Doherty.
With Big Rookie Turmn
Fisher Starts Search
To Fill Varsity Squad
One of the largest turnouts in
Michigan history, more than 100
men, reported for the opening of
spring baseball practice yesterday
in Yost Field House.
Attired in an odd assortment of
uniforms, the young Wolverine as-
pirants clogged the batting nets
all afternoon pitting their skill
against tryout hurlers.
Coach Ray Fisher was pleased
with the large turnout which will
probably contribute largely to this
year's squad. Only three letter-
men will be returning from last
Because of the numerous can-
didates, Coach Fisher was unable
to get a good look at all of them
today, but he hopes to get a fairly
;ood idea of what he will have
wvailable by the end of the week.
All of the 60 batters, 40 pitchers,
and 10 catchers are newcomers to
Wolverine baseball, none of whom
Iave earned letters or numerals.
Practice for returning members
of last year's team will not begin
for a few days.

The winner of this meet will
emerge a definite choice for sec-
ond place behind the invincible

ship set-to at Champaign. Pre-
sent deductions indicate that Sat-
urday's struggle will be even clos-
er than the recent duel between

Relay May Decide Meet
Just as in the Spartan encount-
er, the eventual winner may well
be in doubt until the finish of the
final event, the mile relay. Coach
Ken Doherty and his thinclads
are not particularly enthused ov-
er this idea, since - the Buckeye
quartet nipped Michigan at the
Michigan State Relays three
There are twelve events in an
indoor dual meet, and a compara-
tive glance through the list re-
veals that the decisive burden this
Saturday will fall upon four of
them, the 440, 880, the relay, and
the broad jump. It is here that
the points may go either way.
Split Even in Others
The reason for the particular
emphasis placed on these four
events is the strong probability
that Michigan and Ohio will split
about even in the other eight. The
Wolverines are definitiely favor-
ed to cop most, if not all, the
points in the mile, two mile, and
shot put, while the Bucks seem
just as sure of the high hurdles.
In addition to the strength in
the highs, Ohio has what may be
called a favorable edge over the
Maize and Blue in four other spots,
the 60 yard dash, the low hurdles,
the high jump and the pole vault.
In the quarter, half, relay and
broad jump, however the odds
are completely even. It thus ap-
pears that whoever is able to
swing the most points in these
four events will end the evening
with the top score.
Whitfield, Cogswell Good
In the 440 Ohio has Malvin
Whitfield and Harry Cogswell.
Both have hit consistent times
under fifty seconds. Last week at
Minnesota Whitfield captured the
quarter in a fast 49.4, while on the
previous week-end Cogswell won
the event against Northwestern
and Iowa in 49.9.
It is a question whether Barten
will run the mile or the half, along
with the relay, or both this Satur-
day. He is capable of running un-
