(Continued from Page 1)

Illinois and Northwestern will
oth be out to upset Michigan's
pplecart this year, but indica-
ons are that the Illini will be
he more difficult of the two.
In his first season as the Illinois
age mentor, Harry Combes guid-
r his outfit to a tie for third
lace with Wisconsin.
He put on the floor a team
which compiled the highest 20-
game total in the history of the
school, beating out such squads
as the ones made famous by the
"Whiz Kids.'"
The Illini went through their
0-game schedule with only five
>sses, but were unfortunate in
at all their defeats were to Big
irA Annonnts.
Of the eleven men who formed
e highest scoring unit in the
onference, nine are back, includ-
g tne sensational All-Confer-
nce forward, Dwight "Dike" Ed-
The only regular gone from the
old is guard Jack Burmaster,
hose shoes will be hard to fill.
Along with Eddleman, the
veterans include forwards Van
Anderson and Jim Marks, pivot-
men Fred Green, Wally Oster-
korn and Walt Kersulis, with
Bill Erickson, Burdette Thurl-
by and Dick Foley shooting for
the gu~trd posts.
With what may be the strongest
rray of centers in the Big Nine,
,ombes has been experimenting
ith the tall (6 ft., 4i/2 in.) Oster-
orn at forward to give even more
There's a chance that he and
he six-foot four-inch Kersulis
ay be shifted between forward
znd center, and that Green, stand-
g six feet, seven inches, will be
layed only at the pivot post.
It's a tall team, with the let-
termen averaging six feet, three
inches in height.
As far as Northwestern's pros-
ects are concerned, they will de-
end mainly on what the sophs
an show.
Although the Wildcats have

seven letter winners returning,
four of whom were starters last
year, they won only three Con-
ference contests last year and
ended up in a tie with Indiana
for eighth place.
The veterans include starters
Jim Barr, Bill Sticklen, George
Maddock and Chet Strumillo,
along with reserves Bob,"Cotton"
Hughes, Joe Zuravleff and Tom
Sticklen was the outstanding
Wildcat on the court last year,
netting 176 points and placing
fifth in Conference scoring.
In addition, this Joliet, Ill., jun-
ior is an excellent floorman and
ball-handler, and will prove in-
valuable on a team largely
manned by sophomores.
Coach Arthur "Dutch" Lonborg
has 14 sophs now on the roster,
who are pressing the veterans at
all positions.
Since three of the lettermen,
centers Maddock andZuravlef f
and guard Worthington, are
gridders, many of the second-
year men will get a chance to
show their stuff early.
Maddock and Zuravleff are the
only returning pivotmen, and
Worthington is one of the two
guard veterans.
Until they return from their
Rose Bowl foray, six-foot four-
inch Ray Ragelis will take over at

closest they got.

gradually pulled away from the
Panthers, and, when they walked
off the court at halftime, the Wol-
verines held a 32-18 edge.
Pitt came out clawing in the
second period and tallied a quick
five points in the first 30 sec-
onds of play.
But after this the teams went
on a barter basis, "one for me
and one for you," with Wolverine
Coach Ernie McCoy putting in re-
serves on a liberal basis.
HALFWAY through the stanza,
the Michigan mentor threw in his
starting quintet of McCaslin, Su-
prunowicz, Vander Kuy, Elliott
and Harrison.
The Maize and Blue here put
on its best exhibition of basket-
ball all night.
When the starters ioved in
with nine minutes to play, Michi-
gan was leading, 42-33.

IN FIVE ANT) a half minutes,
they built up a 54-36 edge over
the now hapless Panthers.
Coach McCoy again removed the

starters, but Pitt, now reduced to
trying long shots for quick points
in order to close the margin, was
unable to overhaul Michigan.

JVs in Finial
Minute, 39-38
A hard-fighting Michigan Nor-
mal varsity surged from behind;
yesterday, to gain a last-minute{
victory over the Michigan jayvee
squad, 39-38.
Trailing at the end of the first
half by a score of 27-13, the men
from Ypsilanti steadily hacked
away at the jayvee lead until they
tied the score at 35-all with three
minutes left to play. Ypsi then
went out in front on a foul shot
by Fred Jackson, the center.
* * *
JERRY BURNS tied it for Michi-
gan with a foul shot, but a basket
by Turner of Michigan Normal
sent them out in front by two
Turner put the game on ice
with a foul shot with twenty sec-
onds left. A last-minute heave
by Bill Agre from mid-court
ended the game with a victory
for Michigan Normal.
Playing the Michigan style of
slow, deliberate basketball, the
jayvee squad looked very impres-
sive in the first half. In the second
half, however, they tired and
weren't covering the backboards
or following their shots as they had
in the first half.

Even Matt Mann was surprised.
Not surprised that his swimmers
could do as well as they did, but
surprised that they did so as well
as they did at Saturday's Swim'
With the Big Ten season still
almost two months off Michigan's
swimmers are already swimming
at a pace that smacks of top-sea-
son performance.
With a fine group of veteran
lettermen to give balance and
depth to the squad plus Ithe ar-

sophomores to fill some of the
vacant spots, the Wolverines are
again giving notice to the Con-
ference that they mean business.
Most of the fans present at the
Gala were looking for an answer
to the Holiday question. And they
got a good one. Bernie Kahn, up
from the freshman ranks, proved
that he's the boy who plans to
make Michigan stop worrying that
Holiday' is gone.
Mann himself commented that
"he's the boy that can fill the big
brogans Harry left and, although
it may not be this year, he's going
to come awfully close to the stand-
ards Holiday set."
In addition to Kahn in the
backstroke, Tommy Smith is an-

other one of the sophs who is
going to be tough to keep out of
the lineup.
Performances of Michigan's vet-
eran swimmers ran true to form.
Bob Sohl is still the man to beat
in the breast stroke, and Charlie
Moss is still the man who looks
like the one who will come closest
to doing it. Sohl was only .9 sec-
onds off the pool mark and Moss
was close behind.
Dick Weinberg is the class of
the spirit men but Kogan, Tittle,
and Crispin all turned in excel-
lent races.

Wolverines will continue practice
in Florida and return to active
competitionwhen they meet Pur-

he was followed by Fred Jack-

As a whole, the performance of
the jayvee squad showed that with
a little more experience they will
become a hard to beat combina-
tion. It was pointed out by J. T.

CHICAGO, Dec. 13-(P)-The
estern Conference today drafted
950 football schedules and re-
uced the minimum of Conference
ames per school from six to five.
New member Michigan State
as listed on Minnesota's schedule
nd tentatively booked by Mich-
Purdue and Indiana, both per-
nnially hard-pressed in lining up
Jonference opponents, were the
nly teams to turn up with five
950 league games. Ohio and Wis-
onsin scheduled seven each and
he remainder had six each.
Athletic Director Frit Crisler
f Michigan informed newsmen
hat the Conference reduced the
ix-game minimum to five games,
)Cause league members previous-
y had been allowed two outside

commitments. Most members have
already filled those dates.
It was expected an attempt
would be made to further accom-
modate Michigan State in the
1951-52 schedules. Until Michigan
State schedules five or six Confer-
ence games, whatever the mini-
mum may be, the Spartans can-
not compete for the football
championship. Any conference
games Michigan State plays, how-
ever, will be counted in the stand-
Crisler said Michigan State had
been offered a Sept. 26 date on
Michigan's 1950 schedule, but had
not yet accepted.
Michigan's other 1950 outside
opponents are Dartmouth, Oct. 7,
at home, and Army, Oct. 14, at
New York.
