To Realize Early Potential

Dukes Move
Into Top Spo
In Cage Poll
By The Associated Press
Unbeaten Duquesne moved into
the top spot in the Associated
Press basketball poll this week,
dropping an also unbeaten Ken-
tucky squad, last week's leader,
into second place in the nation-
wide ratings..
The Dukes seemingly gained
first place on the added backing,
of former Indiana and Oklahoma
A&M supporters. The Hoosiers and
Aggies both absorbed their second
defeat of the season during the
past week.
The leaders for this week:
1. Duquesnes (20-0)............14
2. Kentucky (19-0)..............761
3. Indiana (I6-2)...............650
4. Western Kentucky (24-1). 537
5. Oklahoma A&M (20-2) ........468
6. Notre Dame (14-2) ............308
7. Seattle (24-1) .................280
8. George Washington (16-1) ... .273

10. Iowa (14-3) ....................205

From a potential first division
contender to a team that is on
the verge of falling into the cel-
lar; that has been the story of
Michigan's cagers during the
1953-54 season.
According to Coach Bill Perigo,
and those who saw the Wolverines'
early season play will agree, "We
stood an excellent chance of being
one of the top five teams in the.
Big Ten this year."
NOW THE Maize and Blue, with
a two won, seven lost Conference
record is but one game in front
of cellar dwelling Purdue. Last
night's loss also marked the first
time this campaign that Perigo's
quintet dropped below the .5001
mark, its record now being eight
victories in 17 contests.
What is the reason for the
demise of Michigan basketball
fortunes during the season?
Actually there are many ex-
planations, but a' few seem to -
be of primary importance.
"We have not done a real good
rebounding job since the Indiana
game." This statement by Perigo
goes a long way toward explain-
ing why the Wolverines have been
coming out on the short end of
the score lately.
* * *
THE ANN ARBOR five has been
consistently outscrapped and out-
fought underneath the backboards,
even by smaller teams. Last Sat-
urday's encounter with Ohio State
was a good example.
The Buckeyes, with 6-4 Paul
Ebert their biggest man, not
only outrebounded Michigan,
but scored many of their 97
tallies on tipins and follow-up
It is rather evident that a team,

that does not have the ball can-
not score and the Maize and Blue
is constantly outshot, sometimes
by as many as 20 or 25 a game.
MICHIGAN'S defense has not
exactly been the best, especially
when it comes to stopping oppos-
ing pivot men. Wolverine Big Ten
opponents have averaged 79.9
points a game and Conference
centers have tossed in almost
thirty, yes 30 markers per contest.
These are things that you can
point your finger at. However
there are certain "intangibles"
that also should be considered.
Perigo believes that, "Some-
where along the way the boys lost
i the confidence they had at the
beginning of the season and it
has greatly affected their play. No
longer do they feel that they are
the better team."
"SURPRISINGLY enough, the
team's spirit is still good, and per-
haps all it will take to get the
team rolling again would be a vic-
tory this weekend, a pretty rough
assignment however."
Of Michigan's regulars, only
Jim Barron and Don Eaddy are
having very good years, while
Harvey Williams is steadily but
slowly improving.
"Eaddy," according to some
members of the team, "is 100 per-
cent better than he was last year."
The 5-11 junior has not been in
the spotlight as much as some of
the other Wolverines, but he has
been doing a consistently good job.
Eaddy's defensive work has been
oustanding to the point where he
is one of the best in the Confer-
ence. The Wildcats' high scoring
Frank Ehmann paid him quite a
tribute after Monday's game when
he said, "He (Eaddy) is the tough-
est guard I've run up against this

A certain Sophomore named Brown acquired the
appellation "Flash," not because he was lightning on the
gridiron, but just because he was never without an answer.
You'd pass him on the quadrangle and say "How's it goin',
Flash?" He'd answer, "Air Express." Get the pitch?
Brown often referred to his "two-headed brother" in
conversations. One day a few men in his fraternity were
needling him.
"Your brother's two heads must present quite a few problems."
"Not really. The only problem was his neatness," said Flash,
"Neatness?" "Yes," answered Flash, "he worried about it.
Said he couldn't find a shirt that didn't wrinkle around the
collar. You see, he was often looking in two directions
at once, or eating and talking on the telephone.
Hard on a collar."
"What did you do?" They knew he did something about it.
"Simple. I got him the Van Heusen Century shirt with the
exclusive soft collar that won't wrinkleever! I got him
different collar styles and colors. $3.95 for the white,
$4.95 for the colors and superfine whites. You should have
seen the grins on his faces when he saw how those collars
stayed neat all day and night without starch or stays."
"I guess he can really hold his heads up now," said one.
"Yep. He figures he gets four times more wear from Century
than from other shirts. Of course, he actually only gets twice
the wear. He just figures in both heads."
One of the men visited Brown at Christmas, and found
it was all true.

Several weeks ago Jack Molinas,
an angular, wise-cracking forward
on the Fort Wayne Zollner Piston
professional basketball team, re-
turned to what had been hereto-
fore his "off-season" profession
of bartending.
- Molinas, a zoot-suit product Iof
the traditionally austere ivy league
had not returned by choice-he
had been dropped by the National
Basketball League for betting on
his own team. Straight-laced in
his loud-mouthed way, Molinas
maintained that he had done
nothing wrong - it came natural
so to speak.
THE long-limbed fellow from
the Bronx, New York had been a
good friend and admirer of most
of the brilliant hoop stars picked
up. in the original bribe scandal
that hit most of the Metropolitan

Still, Molinas argued, he
didn't commit the same sins that
his bretheren did-he had not
shaved points, he had bet on
Fort Wayne to win. Such loyalty
he felt should be rewarded.
Unfortunately the NBA Presi-
dent, Maurice Poloff and the offi-
cials of the Pistons didn't agree
with his reasoning, and he prompt-
ly was dropped from the pro
ranks. So Jack went back to his
WHILE a star center for Peter
Stuyvesant High School in Man-
hattan, Molinas played for several
"outside" pickup teams in various'
and sundry exhibition games. His'
favorite playmates were the boys
on the Hacken A.C. team-and his
idol of that assortment of cage
performers- was one Jack Byrnes.
Byrnes was at that time one
of the featured performers on
the Manhattan College court
squad-and a couple of seasons
later, he hit the national lime-
light. But Byrnes, a basketball
player with great natural abili-
ty and promise didn't take the1
spotlight in the way that Frank
Selvy and Don Schlundt have
-in this present campaign.
Instead Byrnes was the first
pebble in what turned out to be
an avalanche-Byrnes and team-
mate Hank Poppe were the two
men pin-pointed when Junius
Kellogg reported he had been of-
fered a bribe to shave points. The
Manhattan blot quickly spread to
CONY, LIU, Kentucky, Dayton,
and Bradley to mention a promi-
nent few.
Molinas was sad when his old
friend Byrnes, and his high school
pals Ed Roman, Ed Warner, Floyd
Lane and Al Roth were dropped
from the college sport-but he had
worries of his own before long. Mo-
linas had enrolled at Columbia
University after matching its

scholarship offers against numer-
ous others and proceeded to deci-
mate the Lion's hoop scoring
standards erected by Walt Budko
and Alan Stein.
But Jack was a frisky youth,
andbefore long he drew a part
season suspension for tossing
an alcoholic receptacle through
a dorm window and onto the top
of a professor's car. This did not
faze him.
Instead he improved constantly
and became an Ivy League per-
former excelled only by the great
Ernie Beck of Pennsylvania.
* * *
A HANDSOME offer on the part
of Fort Wayne sold him on a hoop
career, together with part-time
bartending in his fathers bistro.
His penchant for extra money
caught him though, and Molinas
was forced to turn to full-time
bartending - rather a disap-
pointing career for a product of
the hallowed halls on Morning-
side Heights.
As an after-thought we were
wondering if some of the debuach-
ed basketball greats would ever
band together to form a regularly
scheduled barnstorming semni-pro.
team. Sherman White, Leroy
Smith, Warner, Roman, Roth and
Lane together with assorted others
have made some exhibition ap-
pearances since their suspension-
but a real team Globetrotter-style
is yet to appear
THE ONLY trouble is that our
Molinas would be left out in the
cold-poor Jack, a budding star
in the National League would have
trouble making the second string.

What with Alex Groza, Ralph
Beard, Bob Spivey, Gene Melch-
iorre, Wah-Wah Jones-added to
the Smith-Warner-Layne-Roman-
Byrnes nucleus, they would form
a pretty fair team.

project naturally gave a good deal
of satisfaction 'to the customer as
well as Du Pont.
In another case a customer wanted
to reduce carbon contamination of
are welding rod stock. A Du Pont
technical service man suggested
changes in cleaning procedures that
lowered contamination by 90 per
cent. The new process also reduced
metal loss during heat treatment-a
benefit that more than offset the cost
of the additional cleaning operations.
Technical men interested in sales
work usually start in a laboratory or
manufacturing plant where they can
acquire needed background. Depend-
ing on their interest and abilities,
they may then move into technical
sales service, sales development, or
direct sales.
In any of these fields, the man
with the right combination of sales
aptitude and technical knowledge
will find interesting work, and excep-
tional opportunities for growth in the
Du Pont Company.

A major in glibness and a minor in
solid information-those were, the
mythical requirements for a sales-
man in the old days. But they really
never sufficed for a man selling the
products of chemical technology.
Today, the diverse applications of
Du Pont's 1200 products and prod-
uct lines create a need for trained
sales personnel representing many
different technical backgrounds.
These men must deal intelligently
with problems in chemistry and en-
gineering applied to such fields as
plastics, ceramics, textiles, and many
Du Pont technical men are as-
signed to various types of technical
sales activity. In some spots they are
equipped to handle all phases of sell-

ing. In others they deal mainly with
customer problems. Also, certain de-
partments maintain sales develop-
ment sections, where technical prob-
lems connected with the introduction
of a new product, or a new applica-
tion for an established product, are
worked out.
For example, a technical man in
one of Du Pont's sales groups was
recently called upon to help a cus-
tomer make a better and less expen-
sive hose for car radiators. Involved
were problems in compounding, such
as choice and amount of neoprene,
inert fillers, softeners, accelerators,
and antioxidants. Correct processing
methods also had to be worked out,
including optimum time and tem-
perature of milling and extruding.
