All-Western Conference Selections
'M' Sextet Set To Defend NCAA Title
By DICK LEWIS
1 Big Ten basketball teams will
have their sights set on upsetting
the Illinois applecart when the
48th annual Western Conference
-season gets underway December 13.
rCoach Harry Combes' highly-
touted Illini, league champions in
three of the past four campaigns,
have already been rated tops in
ithe nation by many hoop experts.
'The Champaign five finished third
in the NCAA cage tournament on
the WestCoast last spring.
A WEALTH of holdover court
talent is the reason for the wide-
spread support of the Illinois en-
try. Combes has lost only All-
American guard Rod Fletcher from
the starting unit that won 12 of 14
conference outings in 1951-52.
I Standing out like a sore thumb
in the Illinois hardwood plans
are a pair of big boys, 6-8 John
Kerr and 6-7/ Bob Peterson.
rThetwo alternated in the pivot
slot last season and averaged 24
points per game between them.
a, Playing in his first varsity year,
Kerr ranked seventh among Big
Ten scorers with 214 tallies in 14
contests for a 15.3 average. The
205-pound redhead was named to
~the second team all-conference
GIGANTIC Peterson, who tips
the scales at a cool 235 pounds,
registered 139 points over the loop

The word from the intramural
front has it that Gomberg House,
Kappa Sigma fraternity, Newman
Club and Nu Sigma Nu profes-
sional fraternity hold early leads
in their respective divisions in the
quest for the all-year IM trophies.
The Gomberg club has built up
its Residence Hall lead of fifteen
points in touch football, cross-
country and outdoor track, the
three sports to be completed so far.
They have amassed a total of 300
points and are trailed by Cooley
and Hinsdale who are tied for sec-
ond with 205 apiece.
ALLEN-RUMSEY is fourth with
280 and Taylor House trails in
fifth, just a scant two points out
of fourth with a 278 total.
Kappa Sigma, by virtue of its
strong showing in the track and
cross country meets has slipped
away to an early lead in the so-
cial fraternity race.
The Kappa Sigs lead with 320
points, followed by touch football
champions Sigma Chi, who rest
in second with 315Cpoints. Right
in back of the Sigma Chis is Sig-
ma Phi Epsilon with 313 counters.

fifth I M crown in a row Lave

In the Independent loop, last
year's champs, The Newman
Club seems up to its old tricks.
In the three sports completed
up-to-date, the Newman men
have won each time and are off
in front with 324 points.
The Foresters are giving them
their roughest competition, and
they lie 77 points to the rear with
248 while Lester Coop completes
the top three with a 209 point to-
So far only touch football has
been completed in the profession-
al fraternity division and the big
thing in the point column is the
6-0 win that Nu Sigma Nu eked
out over the Law Club giving the
Nu Sigs 150 counters while the
Lawyers are in second with 140.
Phi Delta Phi, Alpha Kappa Kap-
pa and Delta Sigma Delta are tied
for third with 130 apiece.

schedule and served as valuable
relief for the easily-winded Kerr.
Currently, the Illini mentor is
toying with the idea of pressing
both of his tall men into action
at the same time. That's just
what he's been doing in pre-sea-
son scrimmages, and its been
paying off in huge dividends.
Kerr has funnelled through 147
markers in Illini intra-team com-
petition, while Peterson is the only
other wearer of the Orange and
Blue to surpass the century mark.
He has notched 104.

at one of the forward positions,
Combes has two other starting let-
termen from last year's heralded
combine to call on.

SENIOR IRV Bemoras, 16 con-
ference point-getter with 154
scores, is sure to be on the starting
five. He is one of the smaller Illi-
ni players, standing at 6-3/2.
Veteran forward Clive Foll-
mer is the other front-court
standout. The 6-4 hustler con-
tributed 124 points in 14 con-
ference games last season and
sparked the Illini to their NCAA

AP Picks Wolverines Zatkoff, Timm,
Walker for All-Big Ten Grid Honors
By PAUL GREENBERG
While people are going about
predicting" things for Michigans'
winter sports teams, lets not slip
by the boys who earn their "M's"
by skating around the Coliseum
down on Hill Street.
For Coach Vic Heyliger's blue-
shirted pucksters are rounding
into peak form as they prepared
to defend their NCAA ice laurels.
And don't bet that the Wolverines
won't be in there battling down
to the wire when the blue chips
are down at the Broadmore Ice
Palace in Colorado Springs where
the National Championships are
played each year.
IT'S ALWAYS a poor bet to go
against a proven champion and
the Maize and Blue rate as just
that. Five years the championships
have been held and five years the
Heyligermen have been one of the
four teams in the playoffs.
Three championship aggre-
gations and two third place
clubs in those five years stand
as a pretty impressive mark to
beat. Add to that Coach Heyli-
ger's over-all .800-plus win per-
centage and you have some pret-
ty big statistics pointing to a
pretty strong ice outfit for this
Getting down to particulars, the,
first two Wolverine lines will be
hard to match in collegiate ranks.
The number one trio of Captain
Johnny Matchefts at center with
Earl Keyes and John McKennel
at the wings should give the team
its main scoring punch.
THE SECOND line with Doug
Philpott at center and George
Chin and Pat Cooney on the
wings will team with the first to
give a rugged one-two attack. The
third line, led by last years lead-
ing goal-getter the fiery Doug
Mullen suffered a blow last week
when the smooth-skating Ron
Martinson suffered a broken leg
in a practice scrimmage.
Martinsons loss may prove
quite serious as the season
wears on because it takes need-
ed experience and talent away
from the important reserve line.
When the going starts getting
rough and the games come three
and four times a week, that
third line takes on a great
more added significance in the
overall team performance.
The defensive allignment looks
pretty well set with four rugged
operatives ready to aid lightning-
like goalie Willie Ikola. Scrap-
py John McClellan, Big Reg
Shave, Fred Haas and Louie Pa-
olatto all are experienced and well
equipped with tricks of the trade.

Wolverine guard Bob Timm was
named to the offensive eleven, and
sophomore tackle Art Walker and
senior linebacker Roger Zatkoff
gained berths on the defensive
platoon. Zatkoff made the all-
conference team last season.
Walker, receiving , All-Confer-
ence acclaim in his second year at
Michigan seems destined for a
great career. He saw limited ac-
tion in his freshman year, but this
season came into his own as one of
the most feared linemen in the Big

THE CLOSEST battle was for
the offensive end and quarterback
spots. Illinois' quarterback Tom
O'Connell finally got the nod by
an eye-lash over Purdue's Dale
Samuels and Michigan's Topor.
Five ends, Perry, Bernie Flow-
ers, of Purdue, Rex Smith and
Rocky Ryan of Illinois, and
Northwestern's Joe Collier all
were carefully considered before
Flowers and Collier finally
were awarded the two top spots.
Sole unanimous choice was Min-
nesota's Paul Giel, who was the
only repeater from last year's of-
fensive squad. Four others on the
defensive eleven earned honors
for the second straight year. Giel's
running mate at halfback on the
