Bradley Retains Top Rung in Cage Poll;'
'M' Hoopsters Boast Improving Offense

NEW YORK - ()A' - Bradley,
with a brand new lease on college
basketball's no. 1 ranking. and Co-
lumbia, newest member of the
first ten, faced rugged tests this
week that may jeopardize their
standing.
The Bradley Braves carry their
15-game winning streak--the sea-
son's longest-against St. John's
of Brooklyn in Madison Square
'Garden Thursday night.
* * *
T. JOHN'S is a speedy, sharp-
shooting outfit that has won ten
of its 12 games. Eleventh ranked
nationally, the Redmen gave Ken-
tucky a scare before losing, 43-37.
Their other defeat was a one-
point loss to Kansas.
Columbia's surprising Lions,
who have won 17 straight games
over a two-year period, face un-
beaten Princeton, 20th in the
latest standings, in an Ivy
League fray in Columbia's gym.
Princeton has an 18-game streak
going, carried over from last
year.
Columbia broke into the Asso-
ciated Press' top ten at the no. 8
position today, thus causing the
only disturbance in the standings.
The Lions replaced Villanova,
which tumbled to 16th after bow-
ing to Fordham last Saturday, 52-
44. Columbia walloped Cornell
Saturday, 85-45.
* * *
SQUEAKY MELCHIORRE and
company polled 126 first place
votes from the 252 sports writers
and broadcasters who cast ballots
in the weekly poll. They amassed
a total of 2320 points on the basis
of ten for a first place vote, nine
for second, etc.
Oklahoma A. and M. held sec-
ond with 20 first place votes and
1811 points. Hank Iba's "pos-
session" specialists play Tulsa
Thursday and Drake Saturday.
Kentucky, beaten only by St.
Louis in the Sugar Bowl semi-
finals, will play Alabama Thurs-
day and Notre Dame Saturday.
Indiana meets two tough big ten
rivals--Michigan Thursday and
Illinois Saturday.
Columbia plays Yale and Kan-
sas State meets Iowa State Satur-
day.

Two down and many more to

got
That's the situation of the Un-
iversity of Michigan wrestling
team as they head into their third
duaI meet of the still very young
collegiate grappling season.
* *, *
THE MEET will occur on this
Saturday evening when a deter-
mined University of Indiana squad
will invade Yost Field House.
In chalking up their two sound
victories, Cliff Keen's matmen
have amassed a total of 38 team
points as against the 19 which
have been scored against them.
Several sophomores have shown
a lot of promise in these meets.
The standout so far has been Jack
Gallon. who has defeated two op-
ponents and scored 12 individual
points in doing so.
Gallon looks as if he will defi-
nitely turn out to be a valuable
member of the Wolverine squad.
Joe Seandura who wrestled in the
?ittsburgh meet looked well even
though he lost a close 4-3 deci-
sion to Frank Skirpan.
Harold Holt who lost 5-1 to his
Pittsburgh opponent Tony Razza-
no also shows much promise.

Michigan doesn't have a win-
ning basketball percentage but the
team is developing new spectator
appeal.
The Wolverines have won only
four of their first ten games but
only the highly regarded Toledo
Rockets have completely outclass-
ed them.
WINNING OR losing they have
put on a good offensive show with
plenty of action in each game.'
That comes as somewhat of a con-
trast to local cage performances in
the last two years.
Coach Ernie McCoy still has-
n't gone infor fast breaking
but his players have abandoned
Michigan's old policy of conser-
vatism on attack to break loose
with field goal attempts from
anywhere and everywhere on the
floor.
It's true that the squad hasn't
approached a dangerous shooting
percentage but it covers up for in-
accuracy with shot quantity. The
boys are not afraid to fire thatt
ball toward the netting.
* * *
THE GENERAL policy has paid
big dividends in the case of Tom
Tiernan, forward. He has develop-
ed into a dangerous threat with
a variety of jumping one-handed
shots which are finding the range
with surprising regularity.
The former reserve is current-
ly tied with Jim Skala for sec-
ond in Michigan point produc-
tion with 90. More important is
the fact that 33 of those mark-
ers came in three Conference
,games.
Leo VanderKuy remains the
team's number one scorer with a
139 total for the 10 contests. He
has played some of his best bas-
ketball lately.
If the Wolverines had some
staying power they might be rid-
ing atop the Big Ten today. They
pulled up even with Wisconsin and
Northwestern after trailing most
of the way in both games, but
they could not find that little ex-
tra something which produces a
comeback ictory.

friend was unperturbed. He pondered the facts of the case and decided that
one-puff or one-sniff tests ... single inhale and exhale comparisons are hardly
conclusive. Proof of cigarette mildness doesn't come that fast!
And that's exactly why we suggest ...
The sensible test - the 30-Day Camel Mildness Test 4
which simply asks you to try Camels as your steady
smoke-on a pack after pack, day after day basis. No snap
judgments needed. After you've enjoyed Camels -
