Fresh from a highly success-
ful our of the East, Coach Matt
Mann's crew faces a stiff sched-
ule of six dual meets during
the next four weeks.
With four meets, all won by lop-
sided margins, under their belts,
the Wolverines are aiming for the
all-important Conference meet in
Iowa on March 12-13.
The Purdue team led by ace
freestyler and breaststroker Keith
Carter, was defeated by Ohio
State in their last outing, but are
still regarded as one of the five
top teams in the Conference.
Carter, who set the world's
record for the 100-yard breast-
stroke in the Purdue Gala with
a :59., clocking, is regarded as a
definit Olympic threat in both

Wier, McIntyre Top
With all of the Big Nine schools
at,,or beyond, the half-way point
in this year's Western Conference
basketball campaign, the two top
honors in the race are still at
stake and will not be decided
until the latter part of this month.
Wisconsin, defending titlist, is
staving off the championship
drives of both Michigan and Iowa.
Both the Badgers and Hawkeyes
have played two more games than
Michigan's five and are leading
the Conference with six wins and
two defeats. Michigan trails with
four victories as against the same
number of setbacks.
In view of its two upset vic-
tories over Illinois and Wiscon-
sin, the Wolverines have regained
their pre-seasonal rating as the
team to beat.
If the fight for the title is close,
then the scoring race becomes
even closer when the two leaders
are compared. Murray Wier of
Iowa and Jim McIntyre of Minne-
sota are both out to top the 1944
mark of 208 points. set by Dick
Ives of Iowa.
Since Wier and McIntyre have
four and five games remaining,
respectively, there is an outside
chance that the Conference mark
of 256 points set by Andy Phil
lips in 1942 will be endangered.
Wier has averaged 22.5 points a
game for 177 points, and McIntyre
has 168 points for an average of,
24 points per game.
Following the two leaders for
scoring honors are Dick Schnitt-
ker of Ohio State with 125 points
in eight games and Dwight Eddle-
man, Illinois' versatile athlete,
with the same point total.
In reaching their high point to-
tals, Weir and McIntyre have con-
tinued to pace the other Con-
ference scorers in both the num-
ber of field goals and foul shots.
Weir has dropped in 69 shots
from outside the foul circle as
compared to McIntyre's 55 bas-
Bob Harrison, Michigan guard,
is also included in the latest list
of top Big Nine scorers with 74
points to his credit in the big
Big Nine games.
Rumors were flying yesterday to
the effect that Art Valpey, Michi-
gan's assistant football coach, was
being considered for the head grid
coaching post at Harvard vacated
by Dick Harlow.
Vlpey, however, blasted the
report, asserting, "It's all news

With the two most important
hockey contests of the current
campaign slated here for Fri-
day and Saturday nights, Michi-

ticket office yesterday morning
and bought out 2,600 paste-

than three hours.
All of which lends weight to the
cry that Michigan needs a larger

One half of the roof has been
covered with plaster-board, but
through the other half drips all
the precipitation due to melting

The no smoking rule which
has not been enforced was en-
acted because of the poor ven-
tilation. By the time the sec-
ond period reaches the mid-
way mark the fans usually have
trouble distinguishing the play-
ers, and before the game ends,
even the keen-sighted individ-
uals remark on the resemblance
to a London fog.
The fact still remains, however,
that there are no seats for the
