Wolverine Mermen Face
Improved Purdue Squad

It will be another case of pupil
versus coach at Lafayette this
Saturday when Purdue coach Dick
Papenguth sends his Boilermaker
mermen against Matt Mann's
Wolverines.
Papenguth, who has been doing
a good job of building up Pur-
due's swimming fortunes, was one
of Mann's early pupils at Michi-
gan.
HANDICAPPED by a lack of
material in previous years the
Boilermakers, captained by swim-
ming's one man gang, Keith Car-
ter, are at last beginning to feel
their muscle.
Carter is a truly amazing per-
former. He was the only man to
make the Olympic squads in
events calling for two different
Sammies Win
I-M Handball
The champion Sigma Alpha Mu
handball team successfully de-
fended their crown by beating Tau
Delta. Phi in the decisive doubles
match to break a 1-1 tie in the
fraternity handball finals last
night.
The Sammie doubles team took
the match with Aaron Meislin and
Myron Milgrom beating Gene
Paul and Bud Guttman, 21-5, and
21-5, in two straight games.
The two teams had previously
deadlocked in the two singles
contests played 31onday night.
Marvin Hurtz of Tau Delt beat
George Lucks of SAM and Sol
Menashe of SAM beat Leo Gold-
berg of Tau Delt.
The Tau Delts, who were un-
seeded, proved the surprise team
of the tournament, reaching the
final round without suffering a
defeat by either of its two singles
players.
The Sammies, always a potent
power in I-M handball, won their
second straight championship and
reached the finals for the third
consecutive year.

strokes, qualifying in freestyle
arnd breaststroke races.
He is the long course record
holder in the 50-yd. freestyle and
200-yd. breaststroke and the
Western Conference title holder
in both these events.
* *
IN THE OLYMPICS he took a
second in the 200meter breast-
stroke and a fourth in the 100-
meter freestyle and in the NCAA
championships he took a third in
the breaststroke and a second in
the 50-yard freestyle.
But Carter couldn't carry the
load alone and his Boilermak-
er teammates didn't have the
talent to push Purdue to a con-
tending position in swimming
circles.
Now, however, help has shown
up in the form of a sophomore
sprint sensation named Chuck
Thomas and Murray Hubley, a
driver, and pupil Papenguth is
ready to give teacher Mann a far
rougher time than he did in last
year's dual meet when the Wol-
verines captured every first place.
THOMAS HAS turned in a 23.6
timing in the 50-yard freestyle to
set a freshman record at Purdue
while Hubley is a former National
Y.M.C.A. champion.
Letterman Major Willis will
also be back to bolster the div-
ing department and give the
Boilermakers top strength in
both diving and sprint events.

Holy Cross Wins Thriller1
BOSTON - (/P)-Nine seconds
before the. final whistle, classyt
Bobby Cousey hooked in a field
goal which provided the necessary
points for the Holy Cross Crusad-
ers to defeat a taller Loyola of
Chicago basketball team 59-58 in
the first game of a collegiate
doubleheader in Boston Garden..

Eastern Tour
Called Off
For Puckmein
Eastern hockey fans will not
get an opportunity to see this
year's Michigan squad because of
the heavy snow that delayed the
team's arrival back to Ann Arbor
by about a week.
Wolverine coach Vic Ileyliger
announced yesterday that he
had called off the scheduled
weekend series with Yale and
Princeton because of the study-
ing time lost by the team.
The Michigan sextet was slated
to meet Princeton on Friday night
in Princeton and then journey up
to New Haven the following eve-
ning to meet the Eli's.
Heyliger also announced that
he was cutting downi on the
number of team practice ses-
sions for the same reason.
It would have been the second
meeting with Princeton and would
have given the Wolverines a good
MERLE LEVIN, Night Editor
chance to even the score between
the two schools. The Tigers won
the only game played in 1929, 9-3.
Yale and Michigan have met
six times previouslyy with Yale
holding the edge, four games to
two. Last year, Michigan won
twice, 6-1 and 7-3.
Good ticket sales were reported
by the two schools and close to
capacity crowds were expected by
school authorities.
The cancellation of the games
leaves the Wolverines idle until
final examinations are over.
Then on January 29th and 31st,
the Maize and Blue pucksters
entrain for Houghton to play a
two game series with Michigan
Tech.
In the Michigan Tech sris, tC
Wolverines will be out to get a. fly-
ing start on the mid-western
NCAA berth. It is, as last year,1
being decided between Michigan,
Minnesota and Michigan Tech,a
with Nortt lDakota ain outside
possibility.

By PRES HOLMES
Michigan's defending Confer-
ence basketball champions xan
head long into two red hot ball
clubs last weekend, and at the
same time developed a paralyz-
ing case of jitters.
The combination of these two
factors resulted in two losses for
the Wolverines, 45-31 to Minne-
sota, and 45-36 to Purdue.
In Saturday night's contest
with the Gophers the Wolverines
were obviously working under ter-
rific pressure, and tightened up
almost competely. A look at the
shot percentage bears this out.
Michigan sank. 17 per cent of
their attempts.
ALTHOUGH the team didn't
appear as tight on the Boilermak-
er court, they still couldn't find
the hoop, and in the first half
they swished five out of 38 shots,
a 13.1 percentage.
In the second half the Wol-
verines opened up a little and
duniped in almost twice as
many points as they managed to
get in the first half, but the
final percentage was still 13.
'Not only had Michigan lost its
shooting eye, but also its ability
to rebound, which had been so
effective up until these last two
games.
AFTEIC TAKING a shot from

the floor the Wolverines did not
consistently follow through to
pick up the rebounding ball.
t ichigan's ball handling was
ragged too. They just couldn't
hang on to the ball or control it.
Coach Ernie McCoy said yes-
terday, before diving into the
afternoon's practice session
that he was satisfied with the
Wolverine defense and the
main emphasis in this week's
drills would be on offense.
The Michigan defense was
working efficiently. Purdue was
hitting one out of three, and Min-
nesota was almost as effective,
and yet they only managed to get
45 points apiece.
* * *
MINNESOTA scored that many
in the first half against Colgate
last week, and Purdue had piled
up 73 points against Iowa just two
nights prior to 'the contest with
Michigan.
The pressure is off Michigan
now, and the tenseness which
undoubtedly caused most of the
erratic play, the loose ball han-
dling, and poor reboundinmg,
ought to straighten itself out.
When the Wolverines can find
their shooting eyes again, and
still maintain this effective de-
fense, the final statistics will be a
lot more pleasing to read.

. Action on the local track scene
will be previewed this month
when Wolverine trackmen hit the
cinders in two eastern meets.
The Philadelphia Inquirer will
sponsor its annual meet on Fri-
clay evening, January 21, and on
the following night, the annual
Knights of Columbus Games will
be held in Boston.
Iml' WOLVERINES will be
represented in Philadelphia by a
mile relay team. Coach Don Can-
ham is sending a quartet of
sprinters consisting of Art Hen-
rie, Bob Sergeson, Ron Soble and
Herb Barten.
After completing his anchor
leg on the relay squad, Barten
will move on to Boston where
he will join Ed Ulvestad, high
man in the pole vault depart-
ment.
Tom Dolan, high jump ace, was
forced to turn down an invitation
to the K. of C. games because of
final exams.
BARTlCN will be seeking lIs
second 1,000 meter championship
in as many years when he hits the
track on thie 22nd. Last ye-ar, 1r
won the event il the fine time
2:13.3 uming against such op-
position as Jerry Connelly, the
Fordham flash, and Joe Nowicki,
former national champion.
The race this year promises
to be even tougher for herb.

He'll have to beat such men as
Jack Dianetti, star distance
man from Michigan State, and
Mal Whitfield, Olympic run-
ner from OSU.
This year's mile relay team will
look a bit different to track fans.
With the graduation of Val John-
son, Joe Hayden and George
Shepherd, Canham had to re-
build- his quarter around Barten
and Sergeson, who has had some
experience in - this department as
he competed with the relay squad
last season.
SOBLE, who earned his fresh-
man numerals in 1946, is return-
ing to the squad after an absence
of two years and has looked very
good in workouts this season.
Henrie, lead-off man on the
relay team, is the outstanding
sophomore on the squad. fie is
noted for his versatile perform-
ances as a freshman last year,
and should provide Canham
with some valuable aid in aId-
ing depth to the squad.
