By BOB CARPENTER
Michigan's undefeated varsity
mat masters will pit their strength
against some of the strongest ag-
gregations the Big Ten has come
up with in several years when the
Conference Meet starts at Patten
Gymnasium in Evanston tonight.
Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue,
j and Michigan State figure to be
the most prominent foursome,
with Wisconsin and Iowa as pos-
sible dark horses.
BOTH THE WOLVERINES and
the Buckeyes are undefeated, but
tied each other in one of the most
thrilling matches ever seen in
mamouth Yost Field House. Be-
cause of their brilliant records,
they will be favored to battle it
out for the Conference crown.
The Maize and Blue will field
a well-rounded mat contingent
paced by such capable grapplers
as Captain Bill . Stapp, Larry
Nelson, Bud Holcombe, and Jack
Gallon.
Stapp, who placed second at 155
last year, and Fred McLean, who
coped second place laurels in the
165 division for the Buckeyes last
season, will probably fight it out
for the welterweight crown. Mc-
Lean squeezed past Stapp during
the regular season 9-7 by virtue
of a riding time advantage.
NELSON, WHO WAS the only
undefeated member of Coach Cliff
Keen's mat men, is favored to an-
nex the Big Ten championship at
123 pounds to his long string of
victories.
Holcombe; who won eight, lost
one and tied one during the re-
gular campaign, is a strong
contender in the 167 pound
class. ' Gallon has displayed a
lot of mat savy during this, his
first year of varsity competi-
tion, and is expected to place
among the top three at 130.
Joe Planck, varsity regular at
177 is also expected to contribute
7 valuable points to the Wolverine
cause in his division.
* * *
ART DUNNE HAS shown con-
siderable improvement during the
I_ season despite a not too impres-
sive record and could be a possible
source of points in the heavy-
weight division. Bill Miller, the
Brontosaurus of the Buckeye con-
tingent, is heavily favored to re-
' tain his crown in this division.

Cinder Meet
BUENOS AIRES-(A)-The Uni-
ted States, trailing Argentina for
team honors, reared back strongly
yesterday to score a grand slam
w in the 800 meter run (approxi-
mately a half-mile) and win the
pole vault with the soaring Bob
Richards.
Olympic champion Mal Whit-
field, Bill Brown and Hugh Maioc-
co finished 1-2-3 in the 800 for the
first clean sweep of the bemspher-
ic contests, completing their third
day.
* * *
WHITFIELD, THE Army Air
Forces sergeant on leave from Ko-
rea, won in one minute, 53.2 sec-
onds, looking apprehensively over
his shoulder at the fast closing
Brown.
Richards, the only other man
besides Cornelius Warmerdam to
clear 15 feet, won the pole vault
with a leap of 13 feet, 2 inches.
No one else matched the height.
Big Jim Fuchs gave the Uni-
ted States another championship
when he won the discus throw with

160 feet and four inches.

Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill.-The Fight-
ing Illini, for the second straight
year, find themselves in the pre-
carious position of being picked
as favorites to win the Big Ten
Track Championship as competi-
tion gets underway in qualifying
trials here today.-
Four records are in danger of
being bettered by the top-notch
field of athletes led by Michigan's
Don McEwen, OSU's Len Truex,
and Illin~ois' Don Laz.
* * *
IN DANGER of falling in this
forty-first annual conference in-
door meet are the pole vault in
which Laz's excels, and the 880,
mile and two mile run which fea-
ture Truex (in the former two)
and McEwen (in the latter two).
Per usual the favorite roll is
more a hindrance than a bless-
ing. Last year Illinois wound up
third, much to the prognosti-
cator's chagrin, while overlook-
ed Ohio State sneaked to the
championship with a win in the
last event, the mile relay, pro-
viding the winning margin.
Pr oing that dual meet strength
means nothing in the Conference
meet, the Buckeyes swept past
Michigan and Illinois, both of
whom have had much superior
duel meet performances.
* * *
THIS YEAR the same situation
exists for Michigan, which has
the top Big Ten dual meet squad.
The Wolverines have the balance
that wins the dual competition,

but not enough outstanding stars
to take the firsts, seconds, and
thirds necessary for the confer-
ence trial.
Illinois' strength is built
around the pole vault, in which
they have three sure placings,
including first and second. Next
to this is the mile relay good
for 10 important points by vir-
tue of its timings so far this
year.
Other Illini places are expected
by Joe Gonzales in the 60 yard
dash, part of their mile relay
squad as individual performer in
the 440, Lamb Lawton in the dis-
tances, Bob Barnum and Hal
Berschet in the shot, and Laz in
the broad jump.
MICHIGAN, basing much of its
hope on its top hurdling contin-
gent and strength in the distances,
will have a fight to ward off In-
diana's Hoosiers, who won the
outdoor meet last year, for second
place.
McEwen in the mile and two
mile, and Don Hoover, Van
Bruner, and Jim Mitchell in
the hurdles provide the Wolver-
ines with their main basis for
contention.
Chuck Whiteaker is the other
probable Michigan high placer,
and possible fourths or fifths ex-
ist in the 60 yard dash, shot put,
and mile relay. The broad jump,
one of the top events in the be-
ginning of the season, appears to.
be Michigan's weakest event now..

CAPT. BILL STAPP
. . . back for another try
* * *
lar in the 137 pound class, could
be an unexpected source of joy
to Coach Keen. Harold Holt
and Joe Kosik will wrestle in
the supplementary 191 and 115
pound divisions if they are of-
fered by the Big Ten wrestling
committee.
However, these two additional
classes will not be counted in reg-
istering t h e final Conference
standings. Finals in all weight
divisions will be held Saturday
afternoon starting at two p.m.

MONTREAL-(P)-The Mon-

season-long tormentors last
night and defeated the Toronto

Big time basketball comes to

Indiana's red fire engine is
scheduled to come rolling onto
the Yost Fieldhouse floor with the
fire chief, bouncing Billy Garrett,
at the controls for a struggle with
Michigan which might prove to
be the season's finest attraction
here.
THE ACROBATIC Hoosiers face
the prospect of winning or else.
They still have a slim mathemati-
cal possibility of overhauling Illi-
nois in the Big Ten stretch drive
but they must sweep their two re-
maining contests while the Illini
are splitting a pair.
Visiting coach Branch Mc-
Cracken is not fooled by Michi-
gan's current eighth place
standing and unimpressive rec-
ord.
His hair is a little grayer since
last January when his Indiana
machine came to Ann Arbor with
a ten game undefeated string and
high national ranking, and left
with the wreckage of a 69-67 up-
set perpetrated by the Wolverines
who had previously been a lack-
lustre quintet.

NEW YORK - P) - The "flu"
bug and some 30 persistent hold-
outs plagued major league base-
ball teams, which officially opened
spring training yesterday in far-
flung war weather resorts stretch-
ing from California to Florida.
Manager Billy Southworth of
the Boston Braves is the latest to
be sent to bed by the mild influ-
enza wave. Brooklyn's peppery
new pilot, Charley Dressen, was
ordered to a hospital earlier this
week.
* * *
THERE WERE two late signings
yesterday, reducing to 31 the num-
ber of players who had failed to
come to terms with their em-
ployers.
Jim Hearn, 27-year-old right-
hander of the New York Giants,
ended his holdout siege by sign-
ing his 1951 contract for a re-
ported $16,000.
Willard Marshall, the Braves'
outfielder, signed a contract, mak-
ing Boston one of four major
league clubs without any holdout
problems. The others are both
Chicago clubs and Cincinnati's
Reds.
WITH THE SIGNING of Cleve-
land's ace pitcher, Bob Lemon,
and the Yankee's catcher Yogi
Berra Wednesday, most of the big
money players are now in the
fold. Lemon signed for a report-
ed $50,000, making him probably
the highest paid pitcher in base-
ball.

MANY FANS remember that
clash as one of their most thrill-
ing sports experiences. Charlie
Murray, this year's captain; elec-
trified the big crowd with a last-
second field goal which shattered
a 67-67 tie and brought Garrett
& Company out of the clouds.
Murray hopes he can ap-
proach that performance tomor-
row night. He logged a total of

17 points against the Hoosiers
to help nullify a 26 point bar-
rage by Indiana's Lou Watson.
The names in the starting Hoo-
sier lineup are not new but three
that appeared in last year's box
score will be missing. Watson and
Charlie Meyer graduated and Jer-

ry Stuteville, a sensation in the
last campaign, was killed in a
tragic automobile accident.
THEY ARE balanced by three
Michigan losses of first string
players, Mack Suprunowicz who
scored 18 of those 69 points
against Indiana,. Don McIntosh
and Hal Morrill.
Biggest names on the current
Hoosier roster are those of cen-
ter Garrett and Bill Tosheff.
Both rank high In scoring with
game averages of 13.1 and 11
respectively.
Tosheff and Jack Brown handle
the forward positions with veter-
ans Gene Ring and Bob Masters
at guard. Sam Miranda is the best
shooting guard on the club and
will have the opportunity to put
his ten point average to good use.
Coach Ernie McCoy hopes his
boys will not suffer a letdown af-
ter their upset conquest of Wis-
consin last Monday. His Wolver-
ines have risen to the heights on
a 'few occasions this season and

would probably like nothing better
than to trip Indiana.

I-M Basketball Playoffs Begin

Newman, ClubI
Independent
Relay Kings
Intramural relay competition
was held at Yost Field House last
night as the Independent title-
holder was named and finalist for
the Residence Halls and Frater-
nities chosen.
The Newman Club turned in a
1:46.2 time to cop first place hon-
ors in the Independent Division.
Ralph Divan, John Fushman,
James Laidlow and Don Peterson
passed along the baton to give
the Newmanites their victory.
MICHIGAN Christian Fellow-
ship placed second with a 1:47.3,1
while Nakamura turned in a
1:51.5 to garner the third slot.
Last year's winners, the Foresters,
was fourth with 1.53.9.
Winchell House, paced by Dick
Miller, Bruce Van Voorst, Bob
Coffey, and Deil Wright took the
top position among the dorms with
a 1:44.3.
* * *
FOLLOWING right behind the
West Quadders was Prescott with
1:44.5, Williams with 1:45.1 and
rounding out the top quartet with
1:46.5 was Hinsdale.
The best time of the night was
turned in by Kappa Sigma as they
led the fraternities with 1:42.6.
Jerry Dennis, George Grettenber-
ger, Ben Jorcik and Bill Cowlin
each took a lap for the Kappa
Sigs.
Beta Theta Pi, last year's win-
ners, placed second with 1:45.8,
Phi Delta Theta was third

Six Fraternity Fives Compete
For Top Intramural Honors

Six teams stand ready to re-
place Phi Delta Theta as the I-M
fraternity basketball champion.
After their 31-17 set-back at
the hands of Sigma Chi, ,the Phi
Delts find themselves eliminated
from the first place playoffs for
the first time in four years.
* * * -
OTHER FRATERNITY fives in
contension for top honors besides
victorious Sigma Chi are Phi Sig-
ma Delta, Delta Tau Delta, Phi
Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Psi and
last night's winner of the Alpha
Tau Omega-Chi Psi contest.
Sigma Chi advanced to the
semi-final round by virtue of
their win over the Phi Delts.
High-point man for the night
was Jerry Davis with four field-
goals and one charity flip. Bill
Ammerman hit for seven points
while Fred Thompson and Paul
Fancher both collected five
counters.
Phi Sigma Delta fought their
way to a quarter-final birth by
eeking out a 38-36 win over Beta
Theta Pi.
THE PHI SIGS found the win-
ning formula in an evenly bal-
anced, fast breaking brand of
team play, while the Betas relied
almost solely on Harold Harring-
ton, who threw in 20 points from,
literally, every place on the court.
The Blumenthal brothers, Bill
and Bob, were two big reasons
for the Beta's first defeat of the
season.

Bill played a fine floor game
while brother Bob, who opened
the night's scoring with a one-
hander from behind the free-throw
line and also put the game on Phi
Sig ice with a field-goal in the
closing seconds, proved to be high
point man of the night for the
victors with 11.
Harrington was the Beta's only
hope for a victory in the see-saw
tilt. After scoring 11 of his team's
16 points in the first half, he came
back to hit for nine more while
his teammates only collected 11
among all of them in the final
half of the contest.
Delta Tau Delta had little
trouble getting by Phi Sigma
Kappa and thus advanced to
the quarter-final round. With
Pete Palmer leading the scoring
parade, Delta Tau racked up 65
points to their opponent's 39.
Palmer plays guard hit for
most of his points by driving
through the Phi Sig defense and
making his own lay-up shots. The
team is marked by good, fast pass-
ing accompanied by a fast break.

Dorm League
Titles Decided
In CagePlay
Four of the remaining six first
place playoff participants in "A"
and "B" Residence Hall basketball
were determined in IM cage play
this week, as Chicago and Prescott
* clinched league championships.
Chicago qualified for one of the
two openings in "A" championship
play by dumping Adams, 38-24,
with Bob Vanderzyl accounting for
10 of the winners' total. Walt Noon
paced Adams with eight.
* * *
PRESCOTT MOVED into the
other vacant playoff slot with a
perfectrecord on the strength of
a 25-13 rout of last place Allen-
Rumsey. Duane Possanza was high
for Prescott, tallying 10 points.
Two squads, Adams and Chi-
cago, also made the grade to the
"B" first place playoffs, with
two others yet to be decided.
Chicago outscored Vaughan, 27-
12, with Dick Kocon scoring nine
for the winners. Les Shalan hoop-
ed 12 as his Adams team triumph-
ed over Greene, 32-24.
