EXPECT CLOSE TUSSLE:
_M' Grapplers Face Purdue 'Saturday

Big Nine Home Schedule
Starts with Northwestern

III

Purdue's wrestling team, which
won the Western Conference
championship last year in the
closest meet in history, will enter-
tain our Wolverines tomorrow af-
ternoon at 2 p.m.
After giving Pirdue a head
start with three consecutive dual
meet wins, the Wolverines have
lost only one meet to them since
1926, which was the contest of
two years ago.
Last year the Keenmen beat the
Boilermakers in their encounter
during the regular season, only to
see Purdue take the champion-
ship due to the results of Bob Bet-

zig's bout with Marlin of Illinois.
Had Betzig been awarded the dis-
puted decision, Michigan would
now be defending champion, in-
stead of Purdue.
As it turned out, Purdue was
first with 24 points, while Mich-
igan, Illinois and Iowa tied for
second with 23 points each.
Michigan's squad will leave this
;fternoon for Lafayette, where
they will provide the first opposi-
tion of the season for the Boiler-
makers. The same group that
faced Illinois here last Saturday
will make the trip with Coach
Cliff Keen.

With one match under his belt,
Wolverine Jack Keller will tangle
with the titleholder of both the
National Collegiate and Western
Conference 115 pound champion-:
ships in the person of Captain Ar-
nold Plaza. Only a junior, and
undefeated in dual meets in the
last two years, Plaza was prevent-
ed from qualifying for the Olym-
pic team last year by a knee in-
jury, which may hamper his ef-
fectiveness this year.
Byron Dean's opponent will
be Joe Patacsil while Tom Mil-
ler will take on either of the two
Purdue sophomores, Charles
Farina or Bob Appleby. Another
soph by the name of Fredericks,
who is a brother of the Ohio
State wrestling mentor, will
probably be at the 145 pound
slot, where he will find able op-
position put up by Jim Smith
of the Maize and Blue.
Another outstanding Boiler-
maker is Waldemar Van Cott,_
runnerup in both the Big Nine and
N.C.A.A. (clampionships last sea-
son, who will engage with Michi-
gan's John Powers. Byron Lasky
Phil Carlson, and Captain Bob
Betzig round out t1he Wolverines'

CHICAGO, an. 13- (/P) - The
world champion Cleveland In-
dians will be the busiest club-and
most persistent National League
rival-in the American League's
241-game Spring exhibition sea-
son.
The "Grapefruit" cornuit pro-
gram, including 132 games with
National Loop clubs, was an-
announced today by American
League headquarters.
It begins March 12, twelve days
after Spring toil starts in the
Florida, California and Arizona.
training bases.
Cleveland's champion Tribe
plays more Spring games than
any other junior circuit club, 37,
and has the most dates with Na-
tional League contenders, 24. Six-
teen, however, are with the New
York Giants; also operating in
Arizona.
The American League also has
28 intra-league contests and 77
tests against top major league
teams. The Philadelphia Ath-
letics make the only foreign jun-
ket, playing three games at Ha-
vana. Chicago's White Sox play
one game with a Marine Service
club.

O
Michigan's cagers will try to an-
nex their first Big Nine victory of
the year when they tangle with
Northwestern's winless Wildcats
tomorrow night at Yost Field
House.
Opening their home Conference
schedule, the Wolverines will car-
ry a pair of losses into the battle
against a 0-1 record the visitors
bring with them.
Although the Maize and Blue
outfit is generally given the favor-
ite's role on the court for this
game, the Purple showed plenty
of scoring strength in losing ai
thriller to Ohio Et ate, 68-6>
WHEN TIT second half start-
ed, Northwestern found itself on
the short end of a 32-24 count, but
rallied to take a 40-39 lead be-
fore the Buckeyes finally caught
fire.

With a full two weeks remain-
ing before the Michigan AAU
track meet at Yost Field House,
the list of entries already shows
promise of some outstanding per-
formances.
Wolverine Coach Don Canham
received word yesterday that
Notre flame University plans to
bring a full squad to Ann Arbor
for the meet. The Irish are at-
wax's a threat in the NCAA and
IC4A track championships, and
should give some close competi-
tion here two weeks from tonight.
Outstanding on the Irish
squad are Bill Leonard, miler
and half-miler; Jim Smith,
hurdler; and Bill Helwig, shot
putter. Helwig is a former na-
tional interscholastic shot put
champion.
The 65-yard high and low
hurdles events should be anonn-
the evening's best races. Besides
Notre Dame's Smith, other ton..
flight hurdlers expected to conm-
pete are Horace Smith of Michi-
gan State, who is defending
champion in the highs; and Norm
Badar, of Baldwin-Wallace Col-
lege, who finished second in the
high hurdles last year.
Garion Campbell, Michigan
Normal College speedster who was
1948's only double winner, with
victories in the low hurdles and
the 60-yard dash, will be on hand
to defend his titles. His time of
:7.4 seconds in the low hurdles
tied the existing record.

NO REST FOR THE WEARY-
Cage Veteran Bill Mikulich will
join team-mates in three tus-
sles during between-semesters
recess.

t

The Wolverinles will rely oil
Jim Mitchell and Clay Holland to
unseat these champions.
Michigan State, one of the
nation's tole collegiate track po-
wers, will have strength in the
distance events. Tom Imen,
who roll a i:l4 two mile last
spring,, is i'avored in this event.
State's power in the distance
events is shown by their clean
sweep of the three major na-
tional cross country crowns last
fall.
In the open two mile relay, a
quartet of graduates have filed
their application. Joe Shea, Joe
Hayden, Charlie Lowe, and Mac
Smith should make a strong bid
in this event. Hayden and Shea
were members of last year's re~
cord-breaking relay teams, Hay-
den running on Michigan's mile
team and Shea on the two mile
teaul.
Lowe, who rani the 880 while at
Michigan, completed his eligibil-
ity in 1946. In last year's meet, he
took third place in the half mile
run, behind Tarver Perkins, of the
Illinois Athletic Club, and War-
ren Druetzler, of Michigan State.
Smith did his collegiate run-
ning at Penn State, where he bet-
tered 4:19 for the mile run. He
finished 12th at the National AAU
cross country run last fall. At
present, he is a graduate student
at Michigan.

they begin to get used to work-
ing with each other, they will
become increasingly difficult to
whip.
Wolverine Coach Ernie McCoy's
quintet could be the first to feel
the effect of this team play.
Up to now, the efforts of the
Maize and Blue have been dis-
mal.
In their two starts to date, the>
defending champs have been un-
able to find the basket or control
the backboards.
HOLDING A pair of teems like
Minnesota and Purdue to 45 points
apiece in consecutive contests is
no easy job.
But unless such performance
is supplemented by some sort of
offense it does no good to hold
the other team.
That's just what happened to
Michigan, and it's something thatr
will have to be corrected against
the Wildcats.
In order to get some points on
the Michigan side of the score-
board, McCoy may break up his
championship combination and
install a reserve or two.
In the first ten minutes of the
second half of the Purdue contest,
he started three reserves and saw
them spark a rally that closed -
an 11 point gap to tie the count at
27-27.
IF MICHIGAN decides not to
change the starting lineup, com-
pesed of Captain Bill Roberts at
center. forwards Mack Supruno-
wicz and Boyd McCaslin, and
guards Pete Elliott and Bob Har-
rison, it's still certain that Hal
Morrill, Bill Mikulich, and Bill
Doyle will see a lot of action.
Morrill has looked particu-
larly good working out at center
and forward this week, and he
may start at either position.
Northwestern's starting line-up
is expected to consist of Jake
Fendley, Don Blasius, Ray Ragelis,
Bob "Cotton" Hughes and Jim
Barr.
The first three are sophomores
who have shown up well enough
in competition to gain starting
berths, temporarily at least.
Ragelis, as a matter of fact,
scored 15 points to lead the Wild-
cats against Ohio State.
The Wildcats have been slowed
down by the failure of gridders
George Maddock, Tom Worthing-
ton and Joe Zuravleff to get back
into shape after returning from
their Rose Bowl victory.
The game starts at 7:30 and all
students with I-D cards will be
admitted free. Admission without
an I-D card will be one dollar.
