FRIDAY, JANUARY 1
Gymnasts Face Gophers
Here Tomorrow Ni oht
Michigan fans will have a look
at the first Maize and Blue gym-
natics team since 1933, plus the
prospective national champions,
when the Wolverines meet the
Golden Gophers tomorrow night
at 8 p.m. in the large gymnasium
at the" Intramural Building in the
only varsity contest slated for
Ann Arbor Saturday night.
Minnesota will bring a group of
brilliant performers to Ann Arbor.
Gopher Coach Ralph Piper, who
has turned out five Big Nine
championship outfits in his 12
years of coaching, calls this the
best team of his career.
Gophers Rated Topsj
Boasting such individual stars
as Jim Peterson, Western Confer-
ence all-around champion, the
Gophers are top heavy favorites to
outscore the newly formed Wol-
verine squad. In addition to Pet-
erson, spectators will see two other
champions in action. Don Hed-
strom will demonstrate how its
done on the parallel bars, and
Gopher teammate Howard Swan-
son, also a Big Nine champ, will
perform on the high bar.
Coach Newt Loken doesn't quite
know what to expect from his
Wolverine acrobats. In spite of a
59-30 romp over Central Michigan
in their only appearance to date,
ON THE FRONT BURNER-Bob Cook, ace Badger forward, is ex-
pected to give the Wolverine cagers plenty of trouble when the
two teams collide Saturday at Madison. Cook led the Big Nine
Conference in scoring last year for the first place Badgers.
work together on double pivot
plays on either side of the court,
leaving the center space open for
fast breaking Cook.
The diminut've forward also
is one of the best floor shots in
the Big Nine today, ana accord-
ing to Michigan coach Ozzie
Cowles, "Youn can't give him
two seconds uncovered. If you
do, the ball is out of his hands
spinning towards the basket."
To counteract the height advan-I
tage, Cowls intends $,o stick with'
the same line-up that he used
against Minnesota, Roberts at
center and Don McIntosh, who
has improved s4eadily, at forward.
The task of guarding Cook will
fall on the shoulders of Pete EEl-
liott with Captain Bob Harrison
and forward Mack Suprunowicz
rounding out Michigan's starters.

If hard work pays off, the Mich-

practicing morning, noon and
night for the past two weeks,
should give the Michigan fans
something to holler about.

NEW YORK, Jan. 15 - (APl) -
The National Footbal League re-
ceived powerful reinforcements for
its grudge battle against the All-
America conference today when a
syndicate of seven wealthy De-
troiters purchased the Detroit
Lions from Fred L. Mandel Jr.,
and announced it was prepared to
pour $500,000 into the enterprise.

This Saturday afternoon will
find Coach Cliff Keen's wrestling
squad, victorious in its initial
meet of the season with Ohio Uni-
versity, taking on all-powerful
Illinois' defending Big-Nine cham-
pions at Champaign.
Even though the Wolverines
gave an impressive showing in
their first performance, smother-
ing the Bobcats 30-0, Coach Keen
realizes that his squad has a long
way to go before it will be ready
to meet the 1947 conference
champs on equal terms.
The first bout of the afternoon
will pit Michigan's Byron Dean, or
John Keller, against Illinois' Dean
Ryan, at121 pounds.
In the 128 pound division, Wol-
verine Bob Johnson will match
brawn and brain with Illini Kash-
iroubles, 1947 National Champion,
and Big-Nine Conference cham-
pion for the past two years.
Marlin's Foe Undecided
A tryout between Jim Smith and
the Wolverine sensation of the
Ohio University meet, Ed Grimes,
will determine the opposition to an
as yet unannounced Illinois grap-
pler in the 136 pound class.
Illini Ken Marlin, who copped
third place laurels in the N.C.A.A.
meet last season, will grapple with
either Phil Carlson or George
Curtis in the 145 pound slot.
The 155 pound bout will find the
Wolverine's bid for top national
honors, Captain Bob Betzig, tan-
gling with Stan Lee of Illinois.
The 165 pound national cham-
pion, Dave Shapiro will probably
meet Wolverine Marty Cranston,
who will be making his first ap-
pearance of the season.
Wrestling for the Maize and
Blue at 175 pounds will be either
Wes Tebeau or Hugh Mack, op-
