Feature Breast Stroke
In Swim Meet Saturday
There's a 100-yard breast stroke race on Saturday night's State
AAU Swim Gala card and it may develop into the hottest battle of
the evening with five Michigan natators slated to battle it out for the
title in the Sports Building pool.
Of the quintet of Bob Sohl, Pat Hayes, Irv Einbinder, Bill Upthe-
grove and Bob Dunlop who are competing for varsity spots on Matt
Mann's 1946-47 squad, only Upthegrove and Dunlop are newcomers to
the Maize and Blue.
Sohl lettered last year as a freshman and rapidly became the
Wolverine's No. 1 breast stroker. The yearling splasher showed great
-improvement as last year's season
progressed and Mann is expecting

Both Hayes and Einbinder are
ex-servicemen back from the Wol-
verine team of 1942-43. Hayes
swam the 100-yard breast stroke
leg of the 300-yard medley relay
in 1943 when he and Harry Holi-
day and Johnny Patten teamed
up to turn in a sizzling 2:50.8,
bettering all national records for
the event. Einbinder shared the
Wolverines' breast stroke burden
with Hayes in 1942-43.
Of the two newcomers Upthe-
grove is well known to Wolverine
swimming fans. A student at Uni-
versity High School last year, the
freshman ace is rated as one of
the top scholastic breast strokers
in the country. Upthegrove and
Sohl split a pair of decisions in
State AAU events last year. Dun-
lop, the other newcomer, is rated
as a promising youngster who
should bear watching.
That's the way the Wolverine
breast strokers will line up Satur-
day night. It's a little early for
predictions but if this quintet
comes up with the next Confer-
ence breast stroke champion,
Michigan's hopes of ousting Ohio
State from the team title will be
greatly boosted.

Writing finis to the 1946 fall athletic campaign, the Intramural
officials announced their selection of an All-star Speedball Fraternity
team this week.
Sigma Chi, winner of the Speedball championship, dominated the
balloting as they managed to snare three of the nine places on the
squad. Two Kappa Sigmas were awarded berths, while Chi Phi, Theta
Chi, Phi Delta Theta, and the Sig Eps each placed one.

from the referees, Heini Kessler

After dropping a 6-3 decision
to a strong Toronto squad last
Saturday, the Maize and Blue
hockey team has been put through
strenuous defensive drills this
week by Coach Vic Heyliger.
Heyliger has shifted his for-
ward lines since Al Renfrew, who
was out of the last game due to
injuries, has returned to his old
position at left wing on the sec-
ond line. Renfrew will team up
with Bill Jacobson and Ted Greer
on the trio that has proved to be
the most formidable one to date.
The number one line will see
Gordie MacMillan at center,
and he will be flanked by Lyle
Phillips at right wing and Dick
Starrak on the left side. On the
third line will be George Peu-
geot at center, Sam Steadman
at right wing, and George An-
derson at the left wing position.
Coach Reyliger has moved Herb
Upton back to defense to streng-
then the rear guard. Upton and
George Balestri will form one
combination, while captain Con-
nie Hill and Bob Marshall will
compose the other one.
With the stress on defense for

Michigan's basketball team, 1946
style, held their first 40-minute
scrimmage yesterday since last
Saturday's surprisingly easy 51-29
victory over Michigan State, and
saw a high-spirited "Red" quintet,
composed of second - stringers,
force the varsity five to come from
behind in the final minutes of play
to eke out the win.
Coach Ozzie Cowles, attempting
to work out some of the rough
spots brought to light in the Spar-
tan contest, had Pete Elliot, the
team captain, playing with the "B"
team in the first half and then
switched him to the first-string
five in the second half. This was
the first time Elliot has worked
with the "A" team in mid-week
practice sessions this season.
