EX-STAR SUCCEEDS:
Savilli Celebrates First Ye ir
As Camp Lee Athletic Head

By JIM LEWY
Michigan State College's wrest-
ling team took all but two match-
es last night in defeating the Uni-
versity of Michigan grapplers 18-
8 at East Lansing.
This meet was the third loss
in eight encounters for the Wol-
verines. Purdue and Illinois, both
victims of MSC are the only oth-
er schools who have beaten Mich-
igan while the Spartans made this
their sixth victory of the season.
G a.1e Mikles, State's 155
pounder provided the feature
bout of the evening as he won a
decision over Michigan's Bob
Betzig, previously undefeated in
seven matches. This loss not
only terminated Betzig's win-
ning streak but also snapped
his number of consecutive falls
in as many matches, at six
straight.
Bill Courtright the Wolverine's
B's Face MSC
Michigan's wrestling fans will
have the opportunity to see the
last home meet of the season this
afternoon when the Wolverine 'B'
team faces the Michigan State
'B's' in the second of a home and
home series at 3:00 p.m. on the
Field House mats.
The Wolverine B's bowed out to
the Spartans at East Lansing last
Friday in. the first scheduled B
team meet in Michigan wrestling
history. Coach Butch Jordan's
boys will be out to even the score
today.
Five men in the Wolverine line-
up for this afternoon have seen
varsity experience. Wes Tebeau,
Phil Carlson, Ed Grimes, Bob
Johnson, and Byron Dean have
all held starting berths at some
tine during the season.
Tebeau, a 165-pounder, filled
Captain Bill Courtwright's shoes
in 'the -Wisconsin meet last Sat-
urday, defeating his Badger op-
ponent 8-6. Carlson has appeared
several times in Confereance com-
petition at 145 - pounds while
D fean and Johnson have also seen
action.
Bob Allen will grapple for the
Maize and Blue at 175 while Bill
Varga will fill the 155-pound slot
to complete the lineup.

national collegiate 155 pound
champion turned in the only fall
of the evening when he pinned
Spartan Don Anderson, 145-
pounder, fighting out of his class
in the 155 division. The fall came
in 5 mins. and 26 seconds.
Michigan's only other victory
in the heavyweight Division where
Dan Dworsky, Wolverine fullback
won a decision over State's foot-
ball tackle Bob Maldegen in a
closely fought match.
After his fine performance
against Indiana Monday night,
John Keller, Michigan 121
pounder was shut out by Gene
McDonald of MSC, 6-0. Keller
fought gamely, but was out-
classed in a rather one-sided
event.
In the 128 pound class Ignatius
Konrad, MSC, defeated Michi-
gan.s John Allred by a decision
in a closely contested battle. All-
red led during the first of the
match but was beaten on total
point score.
Spartan Don Johnson continued
his winning streak by defeating
George Curtis, Michigan's 145-
pounder while Burl Boring stop-
ped Wolverine Ward Petersen in
the light-heavy weight match.
This is the last meet for the
Maize and Blue wrestling squad
before the Big Ten Conference
meet at Northwestern, on

More than 18 months have
elapsed since the war's end, yet a
host of former Michigan athletes
are .adding new chapters to their
careers in the peace-time army.
Down at Camp. Lee, Va., for ex-
ample, is Maj. Roland "Joe" Sa-
villa, former stellar lineman on
the University of Michigan's great
juggernauts of 1937-38-39.
The ex-Wolverine tackle, now a
tall, dignified 31-year-old Army of-
ficer at the nation's largest Quar-
termaster installation, celebrates
his first year as director of his
camp's athletic program this
month. When he took over the
athletic reins at Camp Lee early in
'46, he brought with him a proud
record of overseas duty in sports
directing.
Supervised "Tea Bowl"
Most of his service "over there"
was spent in India, where he su-
pervised the two 1944 "Tea Bowl"
games held in Assam, India, for
American troops in that area.

Replay Game

Purdue and Badgers
T'o Meet at Evanston
CHICAGO, Feb. 28-(P)-The
Western Conference's 1947 bas-
ketball championship may be de-
cided tomorrow night, but the
final result still hinges on whether
the unfinished game between Wis-
consin's pacesetting Badgers and
Purdue is replayed.
That game, unfinished when
the stands in Purdue's field house
collapsed last Monday causing
three deaths and injury to 250
others, probably will be played a
week hence, five days after the
regular season is ended, in' the
gymnasium of suburban Evanston
high school.
Indiana Strengthned
Tomorrow night's championship
status revolves around Illinois' in-
vasion of Indiana and Wisconsin's
battle with Minnesota at Minnea-
polis. If Illinois wins and Wis-
consin conqers Minnesota, the
Badgers will have sole possession
of the title.
Neither Indiana nor Minnesota
has been defeated on their home
courts. However, Illinois and
Wisconsin already have defeated
their points in each instance. In-
diana will be strengthened by the
return of Lou Watson, who has
been out of the game because of
a hand injury. Watson is Indi-
ana's second high scorer.
Purdue Faces Iowa
Minnesota has beaten every
team in the"Big Nine" this year
except Wisconsin, which has won
eight out of ten starts. Second
place Illinois has won eight out
of eleven.
Purdue engages Iowa at Iowa
City tomorrow night to complete
the conference program. On
Monday night Purdue plays In-
diana at the Butler University
Field House at Indianapolis be-
fore a capacity crowd of 14,000.
This game was shifted from the
Purdue field house because of the
investigation of the bleacher col-
lapse.
The 12th and final double head-
er bill of the Chicago Stadium will
be played tomorrow night, prob-
ably before 20,000, with North-
western and Notre Dame meeting
in the first game, and DePaul and
Loyola playing the second. These
two Chicago teams have not play-
ed since 1943.

Greenberg Hits
Training Camp
MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 28-(A)-
Hank Greenberg, the old Bronx
boy, today became the first base-
ball player in history to arrive at
spring training camp in his em-
ployer's private plane, with two
pilots.
The noted slugger, together
with Mrs. Greenberg and John
Galbreath, treasurer of the Pitts-
burgh Pirates, landed at 3:30 p.m.
(CST) after a rough six and one-
half hour flight from New York.

cago Bear fullback, and the Army
Air Forces were adversaries in both
contests.
The past 12 months at Camp
Lee saw top-notch teams enter-
tain the home fans, thanks to Sa-
villa's able management. He im-
mediately inaugurated an exten-
sive intra-mural program with the
accent on mass participation. The
varsity baseball squad copped the
state championship, and then went
on to finish fourth in the Na-
tional Semi-Pro Baseball Tourna-
ment at Wichita, Kans. in August
-to gain billing as the top service
nine of '46. The swimming, tennis,
and volleyball teams gained their
share of honors, too.
Coached Michigan Stars
When King Football stepped in
last fall, Savilla felt right at home
-meaning Ann Arbor, of course-
for three freshman stars ' from
Fritz Crisler's 1945 grid machine
were in Camp Lee togs. They in-
cluded - Walt Teninga, break-
away specialist; George Chiames,
ace quarterback; Al Wahl, a sturdy
tackle.
The Lee gridders were coached
by Sam Francis, unanimous All-
American fullback in 1936 from
Nebraska, who just signed as head
mentor at Kansas State. Savilla
served as line coach of the soldier
squad that coasted to a 10-2 rec-
ord and the Middle Atlantic Serv-
ice Championship.
Played With Harmon
Savilla gained much attention
playing with a trio of Ann Ar-
bor's most famous gridders of re-
cent years--Tom Harmon, Forrest
Evashevski, hnd Bob Westfall.
Harmon and Evashevski, the back-
field duo that ran roughshod over
the nation's best forward walls in
1940, were juniors in Savilla's final
year.
Savilla coached for two seasons
at South Charleston High School,
W. Va., before entering the serv-
ice in July, 1941. Commissioned
at Camp Lee May 20, 1942, he
completed a long tour of duty over-
seas, and returned to the states
late in 1945.
He is a bit uncertain about his
future plans. He may stay in the
army for a while. But right now
he's in the midst of baseball prep-
arations for the 1947 edition of the
Camp Lee Travellers.
Dizzy Trout Arrives
At Salary Agreement
LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 28-UP)-
Paul (Dizzy) Trout, saying he was
anxious "to get started to work,"
ended his four-day holdout siege
today by accepting the Detroit
Tigers' terms after a telephone
conversation with Vice President
Billy Evans in Detroit.
Trout, Detroit's strong right-
handed pitcher who has earned 82
victories in his last four seasons
in a Tiger uniform, accepted a
flat $25,000 for 1947, which would
come approximately $3,000 short
of his earnings last year.
