By IH ySuee , I Wolverine Coach

Basketball is not only a gan'-
its a scientific study to Cuah
Ozzie Cowles, the mai mainly ye-
sponsible for Michigan's lX)SitiOn
on top of the Big Nine bask t-
ball heap.
When the Wolverines come
up against the Gophers at Min-
neapolis tomorrow, they will
face the unenviable task of
stopping Minnesota's cagers,
who have been beaten but' onc
on, their home court in the past
two years by a Conference op-
But any squad drilled by Cowles
is looked upon with great respect,
for he is considered one of the
keenest mentors in college ball.
When Cowles packed his bags

back l. sit am.itt to Ann Ar-
buy r i n w1 fa ll f '46, he left be-
ithul l mi i a tradi mark as Dart-
iiiuul th' caw %wizard."
By winning six Ivy League
crowns during his eight year
stay in Hanover, N.H., he be-
came a great favorite with the
townspeople. In his last year
as coach of the Indians, he led
the team to the Ivy League
Even when Cowles first started
coaching at Dartmouth, his ap-
prentices soon learned that he
was a stickler for fundamentals
and defensive tactics. This sea-
son his ideas of how the game
should be played have paid off
in six Conference wins to date.
Prior to each clash, every

team is scouted thoroughly for
weaknesses, strong points, and
any peculiar individual traits.
As an example, when Wisconsin
was scouted early in the year, it
was noticed that Bob Cook seldom
took a lay-up shot after break-
ing into the left side of the bas-
ket. By studying this sort of in-
formation, Cowles can plan his
defense accordingly.
And does psychology enter
the picture at all? "Only to the
extent," Cowles said, "that the
boys must be sold on the type
of defense to be used."
According to the Michigan
coach, the man-to-man's most
important advantage is the in-
dividual's responsibility and pride
in preventing his man from scor-
Cold facts show that the Mich-
igan "wizard," with persistent tu-
toring, has developed a respon-
siblehgroup of players, who, in
their second year together, are
on the verge of giving Michigan
its first basketball champ onship
in almost two decades.
There are -a limited number
of tickets still available for the
hockey game Saturday night
when, the. Michigan skaters
plays host to Western Ontario.
The ducats will go on sale at
8:30 a.m. today, and it is em-
phasized that students bring
their LD. cards.

shattered Johnny Weismuller's

yards (long course) with a :51.9
However, Ris is not Iowa's lone
point-getter. Turning in good

Who Will Take
Indiana Post?
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Feb. 19
-(P)-Indiana University needed
a new head football coach in a
hurry today after the professional
Detroit Lions announced they had
signed Alvin N. (Bo) McMillin,
contingent upon his release from
a 10-year contract at I.U.
-With spring football practice
coining up, Indiana was expected
to start an intensive search for
McMillin's successor. Everybody
on the campus had suggestions.
Possibilities gossiped about in-
cluded Paul Browi, now coach of
the Cleveland Browns in the All-
America League and former Ohio
State coach.
Others included Henry Franka
of Tulsa, Sid Gilman of Miami
and John Magnabosco, Ball State
College coach, former Indiana
fullback and one-time developer
of state high school champions
at Clinton.
There will be a Jayvee wres-
tling match with the Chicago
branch of the University of
Illinois at 3:30 p.m. this after-
noon at the Field House. There
will be no admission charged.

In a situation such as this, a
matter of inches can determine

A GOOD TOPCOAT is one that a man likes to
wear over and over again. There is recurring pleasure
in wearing a topcoat that is neither too much nor
too little-but just right.
Since '29 ROCK-KNIT Topcoat creations have beerr
worn by well-dressed men who appreciate unusual
combinations of color and pattern.
Outstanding workmanship further underscores the
style leadership and service at Rabideau-Harris.
