the first time in Michigan
history the Spartans of
gan State have a better-
even chance of clipping the
rine thinclads in a dual cin-
ttle, so Coach Carl Schlade-
and Ken Doherty are plan-
to hurl their full power at
other on the oval of Yost
House at 7:30 tonight.

especially who promise to

in the 65-yard low hurdles. His
best broad jump to date is well
over two feet better than the 22

Roy Daggs of the Wolverines.
The Spartan flash may have
some unexpected competition in
the dash from Bob Mann, Michi-

Jim Morrish is not to be over-

Coach Doherty has Dick Forrestel,
Mel Detwiler, and perhaps Herb
Barten all on hand. George Shep-
herd will still be on the inactive
list due to a strained muscle.
In addition to Queller in the

Michigan's wrestling fans will
have the opportunity at 3:00 this
afternoon to watch the Wolverine
grapplers battle a powerful Illi-
nois team, rated one of the top
collegiate clubs of the nation, in
a dual Conference meet at the
Yost Field House.
The spotlight will be focused on
the 165-pound match where two
National Collegiate Champions,
Bill Courtright of Michigan and
Dave Shapiro of Illinois, will en-
ter the ring in a contest where
the stakes will be quite a bit
more than the usual team point
Corky will be out to avenge
his only defeat of last season.
which he suffered at the hands
of Shapiro in the Ilini meet.
At the end of the 1945-46 Con-
ference campaign, Corky, who
had been wrestling at 165, re-
turned to his regular weight
division and captured the NCAA
155-pound crown while Shapiro
went on to win the National
165-pound title.
This will be the first time in
many a year that two NCAA
champs in different divisions will
lock in combat in a regular col-
legiate meet. Shapiro recently
chalked un his 18th consecutive
victory in the Indiana meet to
maintain a perfect competitive
record. Corky has won all of his
matches this season by falls.
The Wolverines were dealt two
serious blows this week when "Old
Man Injury" visited the Keen
camp and pronounced two com-
petitors unfit for action. Johnnie
Allred, regular 128-pounder, is out
with intestinal flu and 136-poun-
der Maurice Smith is still suffer-
ing from, a head injury incurred
in the Ohio meet.
Coach K een will use Jim
Smith at 128 pounds and wrestle
Ed Grimes at 136. Smith de-
feated his opponent in the
Northwestern meet and dropped
his match in the Ohio contest.
Grimes, an Ann Arbor boy, is
a newcomer and will make his
first appearance for the Maize
and Blue this afternoon.
Harv Littleton, Byron.Dean, or
John Keller will appear for the
Wolverines in the 121-pound clash,
while Phil Carlson will wrestle in
the 145-pound clash. Carlson has
a record of one victory and two
defeats in Big Nine competition
this season.
Bob Betzig, who has scored
three pins it three Conferenced
meets to date, will grapple at 155
pounds against Illinois. In the 175-
pound bracket, the Wolverines will
enter Hugh Mack, Mack has two
victories and one defeat to his
credit so far this season.
Letterman Dan D w o r s k y
should w r e s t I e in the heavy-
weight m a t c h for Michigan.
Dworsky has been hampered for
the past several days with a
head cold but will probably be
in shape in time for the meet.
The Illini aggregation squeaked
out a 14-12 triumph over the
Hoosiers in their only Big Nine
appearance to date.
Coach Bob Dixon requests all
candidates for the 1947 varsity
tennis squad to be present at
a meeting at 7:30 p.m. next
Tuesday in the Michigan Un-
ion (see bulletin board for
room number).
Benny Oosterbaan was the only
Maize and Blue basketball player
ever to lead tihe Big Ten in scoring.
He turned the trick in 1928 when
he connected for 129 points in
12 games.

M i c h i g a n' s record-breaking
swimmers will go after another
mark at 8 tonight when they play
host to Northwesterns up-and-
down natators at the Sports
Building pool
Wolverine sights tonight will be
trained en the world and Ameri-
can record for the 300-yard med-
ley relay race Matt Mann has in-
dicated that his ace trio of Harry
Holliday, Bob Sohl and Dick Wein-
berg will seek to lower the present
American mark of 2:50.8 for the
event set in 1943 by another Mich-
igan threesome.
Just Miss Mark
The Maize and Blue relay team
were only six-tenths of a second
off the mark when they churned
the 300-yard distance in 2:51.4
against Purdue two weeks ago. The
same Maize and Blue trio also
posted a 2:51.7 against Minnesota
last week. Holliday was a mem-
ber of the 1943 Wolverine team
that set the present mark.
Michigan will rule a top-heavy
favorite over Northwestern, but
Wildcat Bill Teusner, one of the
nation's top middle distance swim-
mers, may steal the show tonight.
In the 220-yard free-style the
Northwestern sophomore ace will
be paired off against Michigan's
Gus Stager. Heusner's best time
for the distance is 2:14.9, while
Stager registered a 2:15 last week.
Heusner wil also swim the 440-
yard free-style, in which event he
is unbeaten this year. His fastest
time of 4:52.2 is the second best
440 clocking turned in in the na-
tion this year. Mann has nomi-
nated Wally Stewart to carry the
brunt of Michigan's hopes against
Heusner in the 440.
Sohl After Record
Bob Sohl will go after the Mich-
igan pool (and until last year the
world and American) record for
the 220-yard breast stroke. Sohl
topped the listed standard of 2:22
with his fast 2:21.5 time at Pur-
due two weeks ago. The race for
second in the breast stroke be-
tween Michigan's Bill Upthegrove
and the Purple's Steve Martin-
chick may prove one of the eve-
ning's closest contests.
Upthegrove has shown rapid
improvement and last week the
Wolverine freshman beat out Min-
nesota's ace, Mel Ivonen, in a
good 2:29.8. Martinchick, on the
strength of a 2:27.4 performance
against Wisconsin a week ago,
will rule a slight favorite to beat
the Maize and Blue freshman.

should also provide some hot com-
petition. Bud Allen, the North-
western speedster, has b e e n
clocked in :52.9. He'll be opposed,
by Wolverine sophomore Dick
Weinberg. The Maize and Blue
sophomore churned to a :52.2
"hundred" against Purdue.
With diving competition off the
low board Mann has elected to
use all-Americans Ralph Trim-
-born and Tommy O'Neill against
Northwestern's Ronnie Trumbill,
1944 Conference champion. Mann
also announced that Wolverine
divers Gil Evans and Capt. Alex
Canja will give an exhibition of
high board diving.

Greer shines on number one line.
His sterling play helped hum-
Lle Minnesota yesterday, 4-2.

Special To Tice Daily
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Feb. 14
-Michigan's hockey sextet defeat-
ed the Minnesota Gophers 4-2 last
night to decide the mythical West-.
ern Conference championship be-
fore a crowd of 4,265 at the Min-
neapolis arena tonight.
Defense was the deciding factor
in the contest as the Maroon and
Gold eased up enough to let Wally
Gacek through to clinch the game
for the Maize and Blue at 9:10 and
17:11 in the final period.
Jack MacDonald was at his best
as he turned away 40 Gopher
shots that were destined for pay
territory for miraculous saves. The
Wolverines were also back-check-
ing in great fashion which proved
to be the margin of victory for
Vic Heyliger's charges.
Uses Only 10 Men
Coach Heyliger used but 10 men
to repulse Minnesota's attempt to
wrest the Big Nine crown from the
Wolverine pucksters.
Defenseman Dick Roberts drew
first blood for the Northmen on
a screen shot which he put high
in the corner of the net at 3:29.
Twice in the period Ted Greer
broke away only to be stopped by
nice saves by goalie Tom Karakas.
Both goalies made spectacular
saves throughout the stanza, the
best of which was made by Mac-
Donald when the Wolverines were
short as a result of a two-minute
hooking penalty handed George
Balestri. MacDonald raced out
from the crease and fell on the
loose puck about five feet from
the net to save the Maize and
Blue from disaster.
Balestri Ties It
Balestri tied the count at 6:52

Michigan Out To Wmin Crucial
Cage Tilt with Iowa Tonight

Still smarting from the sting af
its heart-breaking defeat at the
hands of Wisconsin, Michigan's
cagers attempt to get back on the
road to victory tonight in a get-
together with Iowa at Iowa City.
Warning his men that the
Hawkeyes are much better than
their record indicates, Coach Oz-
zie Cowles is expecting trouble-
plus from "Pops" Harrison's out-
fit. Nor are his fears groundless.
Iowa is loaded with potentially
great material that is long over-
due to explode. 4
Harrison could throw four
former all-conference selections
against the Wolverines tonight
if he chose. Dick Ives was cho-
sen on the "dream team" of
1944 when he set a new Big
Nine scoring record that still
stands. Dave Danner was also
a first team selection that year
and Herb Wilkinson made the
select group a year later. His
brother Clayt was selected on
the second team that year.
However, the wily Hawkeye
coach has indicated he will start
almost an entirely new team to-
night'in an effort to break the
five game losing streak the lads
from the corn country have com-
piled. Murry Wier and newcomer

Stan Straasma will probably be
at the forwards, Herb Wilkinson
will move over to center from
guardtand freshman Billy all
will team with Jack Spencer at
the guard posts.
An interesting scoring battle
should develop between Wier and
Michigan's Mack Suprunowicz who
are currently running four and six
in the conference scoring race.
Wier has a 13.1 average over an
eight game route and Supruno-
wicz has 121. in one game less.
Wilkinson is 11th in the race and
will be another big gun that Mich-
igan will have to silence if they
want to move on to the Purdue
game Monday night with a better
than .500 average.
