Coach Ernie McCoy, acting as
mporary chairman of the Un-
rgraduate Athletic Managers
uncil, revealed yesterday that
e pre-war progressive system for
am managers will be resumed
is semester.
A call will be made next week
r managers in spring football
d baseball. Sophomores and
riiors are eligible for the jobs.
Under the progressive system,
ese sophs and juniors will be
vated to the top positions when
ey reach their senior year.
Ihere will also be a definite at-
npt made to revive the old
'ard methods. Letters will be
ven to upperclassmen. *
Ihe present senior managers

with the "M" Club, to work out
les and regulations and estab-
h procedures for the revived
ganization.
Thus, another customary fea-
re of Michigan athletic life re-
rns after a wartime lapse of
reral years. Due to unstable
tus of all University men dur-
g this time, the regular system
appointing managers had to
discontinued.

T HE Mystery of the Missing
Gentleman's Agreement was
the subject of a discussion among
the coaches a couple of days fol-
lowing the Michigan-Minnesota
game last Saturday.
It seems as thought Coach
Dave McMillan of the Gophers
mumbled something about there
being a "gentleman's agreement"
against using the "zone defense"
in the Big Nine Conference.
Michigan had just finished giv-
ing Minnesota such an effec-
tive dose of it that their high-
scoring center, Jim McIntyre,
was held to -the grand total of
one point as the Gophers were
shellacked.
The argument against the
"zone" in which each player
guards an area of the court'in-
stead of a particular opposing
player, is that it slows down the
game and doesn't please the
crowd. Coach Ozzie Cowles and
this writer- saw eye to eye against
that one during the discussion. "If
it wins games, it pleases the
crowd," said 'Cowles, and Satur-
day night's performance was cer-
tainly a crowd-pleaser.
AS FOR any agreement, neither
Cowles, nor Bennie Oosterbaan
who coached Michigan basketball
for seven years, had ever heard of
the thing. Purdue used a "zone"
in 1943 against Michigan and Wis-
consin, and sprung it against the
Badgers again the other night fol-
lowing McMillan's squawk, and
were leading up until the tragic
accident in the Purdue field house
at half-time.
After reminiscing a bit, Cowles
recalled that McMillan himself
had used the "zone" back in the
days when the Gophers were

trying to beat the Notre Dame
team on which Ed "Moose"
Krause, the South Benders' pres-
ent coach, was playing center.
Maybe the elusive ghost of a
"gentleman's agreement" hadn't
been born then.

DON'T get the idea that the
"zone" can't be beat. The
Whiz Kids sunk 18 points while
the Wolverines were getting one
Monday night, and they did it
against the "zone." "It's just an-
other defense," said Cowles, "like
the five, six, and seven-man lines
in football, and a good team can
break it." Minnesota just wasn't
good enough last Saturday, and
their coach saw a ghost that just
wasn't there.
* * *
Harry Holiday, the Wolver-
ines' great backstroker, will be
out to take two more of Adolph
Kiefer's records under his wing
Saturday night, when he goes
after the 440-yard and 400-1
meter world marks which the
former Yale swimmer now holds.
Since he has already cracked
them in practice, there is little
doubt in Coach Matt Mann's mind
that come Saturday evening, he
will be able to put two more marks
on the board beside the I-M pool.
YESTERDAY Holiday seemed
more worried about stretching
his coach's swim trunks than the
records. A news photographer
wanted the swimmer's picture, and
when Holiday found it couldn't
be taken in his usual practice at-
tire--or no attire--Mann offered
his trunks, if Harry wouldn't
stretch them. "Don't worry, I'm
getting thinner," the backstroker
declared. "Yeah," cracked Mann,
"You're wasting away to a ton."

Lee "Satch" Setomer yesterday
announced plans for an all-cam-;
pus boxing tournament with a
view toward discovering some tal-
ent for the possible formation of a
boxing squad.
Applications at I-M Building
Applications for the tournament
are to be obtained at the Intra-
mural Building at any time dur-
ing the day. As all weights are in-
cluded in the program no one need
worry about being overmatched.
The fights will begin about
March 15th and will follow the
single elimination plan. The way
things are now developing, the
finals in each weight will be held
at the time of the I-M Open
House.
Each Fight To Be Three Rounds
The bouts are to be scheduled
during the .fternoons or eve-
nings, whichever is more conven-
ient for the fighters. Each con-
test is to be over the three round
route and the rounds will last
either two or three minutes. Ac-
cording to Setomer, nobody need
worry about getting hurt as each
fight will be stopped immediately
if it becomes apparent that there
has been a bad overmatch.
Although a fighter may be
eliminated in his first bout, if it
looks like he has any potentialities
at all he will beconsidered for the
boxing squad now being formed.
IM Relay Teams
Will Vie in Finals
Four crack fraternity half-mile
relay teams - Beta Theta Pi, Phi
Gamma Delta, Sigma Chi, and
Chi Phi - will match paces in
final competition tomorrow night
at Yost Field House.
Greene, Winchell, Lloyd, and
Allen-Rumsey residence halls will
also send their half-mile relay
squads into the Yost Field House
spotlight tomorrow evening in the
finals.1

Track fans will see a preview of
next week's battle for second place
honors in the Conference cham-
pionships when the Michigan and
Ohio State thinclads clash in a
dual meet tomorrow night at Yost
Field House.
The strong Buckeye squad lost
a one-point decision to the Michi-
gan State trackmen early in the
season, a team the Wolverines
edged out by almost seven points.
But in the last two weeks, Coach
Larry Snyder's boys have drubbed
Northwestern, Iowa, Wisconsin,
and Minnesota in triangular and
quadrangular meets.
An important battle for points
will develop in the half-mile.
Wolverine Don Queller's return
to action against Illinois last
~week was marked by a 1:55.8 ef -
,fort in the 880, which is the best
half-mile time posted by any
Michigan or Ohio State runner
this season.
If Coach Ken Doherty starts
Queller in the 880, his chief op-
position will come from Buckeye
Mal Whitfield, whose best time
this year has been 1:56.3. Whit-
field, runner-up for the outdoor
title last year, should be able to
clip this mark if pushed right
down to the tape.
It is still a question whether
herb Barten, indoor Conference
880-yard king last year, will an-
swer the crack of the starter's
gun in his specialty, or move up
to the mile again as he did
against Michigan State and Illi-
nois. In his two efforts at the
longer distance this season Bar-
ten has come through with
4:19.9 and 4:20.4 clockings, while
the best miler the Buckeyes
have, Gene Davis, has been
caught in 4:26.6.
Barten will also have to double
back to anchor the mile relay
team in a tight race that might
decide the outcome of the meet.
The best guess is that Barten will
run the mile since this is the first
event on the program while the
380 comes only 20 minutes before
the relay.
Although Ohio State's mile re-
lay team edged out the Michigan
foursome earlier in the season,
the Maize and Blue quartet of Dick
Forrestel, George Shepherd, Bob
Mann and Barten set the cinders

flying when they hit 3:20.5 in los-
ing to the crack Illinois relay. The
Buckeye baton-passers are un-
beaten this year but their best time
is 3:22.
Ohio State can count on a wind-
fall of points in the high hurdles
from former Conference cham-
pion Bob Wright, Dick Maxwell
and the versatile Lloyd Duff, who
is also a pole vaulter.

Jacobson's Injury Weakens
Sextet For Windsor Battle

An injury jinx w h i c h has
plagued the Maize and Blue hock-
ey squad throughout the season
has again struck the Wolverine
sextet, as Bill Jacobson, veteran
center and leading goal producer,
came up with a recurrence of a
groin injury during a practice
session this week.
The jinx, which has touched
practically every member of the
puck squad this season except
manager George Howland, hit
again at a most inopportune time.
The pucksters now might face the
Windsor Spitfires Saturday night
in the Windsor Arena with the
possibility that Jacobson, who led
Michigan to a 10-7 victory in the
first meeting of these two teams,
may not play.
In the event that the veteran
center will not be able to go Sat-
urday, Coach Vic Heyliger will
move Dick Starrak to the center
position on the second line and
play Herb Upton on the left wing.
Steady Ted Greer will remain as
the right winger on this trio.
George Balestri, stellar defense-
man, who was home last week due
to family illness, has returned to
the team and will be ready to see
plenty of action against the pesky
Spitfires.

On the other hand, the WindsorI
club is much improved over the'
aggregation that performed before
the Coliseum fans to open the
1946-47 season. They will be after
their seventh win in their last
eight starts when they play host
to Michigan.
The Spitfires sport the two lead-
ing scorers in the International
Hockey League in center Harry
Marchand and wing Gordon Hai-
dy. They have also acquired a
new goal tender in Monty Rey-
nolds, who is considered a much
better guardiarr of the nets than
Tom McGrattan, through whom
the Wolverines pushed 10 mark-
ers in their first encounter.
