Harder, Lund Score in Final Three 1
Minutes To Capture Victory, 35-32

Football in '44


Michigan's basketball team annex-
ed its fourth victory in as many starts
by edging out a stubborn Romulus
Air Base quintet, 35-32 last night in
a game which threatened momentar-
ily to develop into a free-for-all as
39 personal fouls were called, 21 of
them on Romulus.
The Wolverines, obviously puzzled
by the Flyers' zone defense, were un-
able to get their scoring machine in
operation and netted only 13 points
in the first half to trail at that point,1
14-13. But with the departure of+
Fred Froehling, Romulus center and'
key man on defense, the Flyers fell
apart and could not match the late+
Michigan rush.
With only three minutes remain-
ing in the game, Romulus took a
one-point lead, but baskets by
Keith Harder and Don Lund put
the Wolverines back in the lead.
Michigan retained its advantage
the rest of the way, despite a des-
peration flurry of long shots by
The game started slowly with a
total of only 18 points scored dur-
ing the first 14 minutes of play.
Romulus jumped into an early lead
on a set shot by guard Ted Woller-
schied, but Walter Kell matched it
with a field goal from the corner.
The lead see-sawed back and forth
during the remainder of the half
and with a minute to go Romulus
overcame a two-point deficit to go
into the lead en a two-pointer by
Froehling and a free throw by Wol-

former University student, and

From then on out it was a nip and

comfortable six-point advantage, but
Romulus fought back to narrow the
count and finally take over the lead.

P iksters Plan
Gopher Match
Victor Heyliger, newest member of
the University of Michigan coaching
staff, is making preparations for the
1944-45 hockey season.
As yet, Heyliger states, the puck
schedule is indefinite due to the fact
that so many of the schools have
discontinued the sport, but contacts
are being made to round-up as many
games as possible for the Michigan
sextet. The University of Minnesota
is already listed as one of the oppo-
nents for the Maize and Blue puck-
sters, and the other foes will prob-
ably be Canadian ice teams.
Heyliger believes that the Wolver-
i.es will have a pretty fair squad if
the players learn the fundamentals
of passing, shooting, and back check-
ing. He thinks that hockey has a
good future in Ann Arbor because the
people like and understand the sport.

Provides Fell
Quota of Thrills
Season's iLong-Run
Honors Go to Young
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, Dec. 8-College foot-
ball in 1944 may not have been up
to pre-war standards but it provided
a full quota of long runs, spectacu-
lar passes and pass interceptions to
keep the fans standing on the seats
they had paid to sit on.
And to make things all the more
exciting, the best plays weren't al-
ways the ones that ended in touch-
downs nor were they the most sensa-
tional plays made by the winning
The season's individual long-run
honors probably go to Claude (Bud-
dy) Young of Illinois, an Associated
Press survey showed today, although
several players made longer scoring
dashes. The Illinois sprinter ran 93
yards from scrimmage against Great
Lakes, 92 yards against Pittsburgh
and 71 yards against Notre Dame.
A run the full length of the field,
about as spectacular a play as can
be imagined, occurred at least four
times during the season. Gus White
of the San Diego, Calif., navy team,
caught a southern California kickoff
behind his own goal and went all the
way. That still wasn't enough to win
for his team. Sid Garrett of Idaho
Southern and Johnny Karamigios of
Denver both were credited with 100-
yard kickoff returns and Frank Broy-
les of Georgia Tech intercepted a
Clemson pass on his own goal line
and ran it back to score.
Other notably long runs included
one of 95 yards by Harry Gilmer
of Alabama against Louisiana State;
Bob Fenimore's 95 yard run for Ok-
lahoma Aggies against Denver; a 94
yard run by Duke's Gordon Clark;
93-yard dashes by shortly McWil-
liams of Mississippi State and Bernie
Sniscak of Pitt and one of 91 yards
by Buster Stephens of Kentucky.
Two of the most ,sensational pass-
ing plays were Notre Dame's 71-
yard forward-lateral engineered by
Frank Dancewicz, Bob Kelly and
Achille Maggioli that beat Illinois
and a later by Otto Graham to Paul
Aschenbrenner on a punt return in
the last three minutes of the North
Carolina Preflight-Navy game. It
was good for 80 yards and a Pre-
flight victory.
Harlan Wetz, 285-pound Texas
tackle, kicked off to Texas A. and
M. and tackled the receiver himself
on the two yard line and Tony Vet-
eri of the Atlantic City, N. J., Air
Station made a 103 yard punt against
George Walmsley of Rice ran 86
yards against Arkansas only to be
overhauled by Mike Schumchyk on
the five yard line. Ohio State's Les
Horvath had an 86-yard run against
Minnesota called back for a pentalty
and in the same game tried a pass
from his own 24, was chased back
about ten yards and then ran for a
Perhaps the most spectacular "no
count' 'play was Charles Moffett's 83
yard run for Kansas against Kansas
State in the final 15 seconds with his
team trailing by four points.

New Guinea, Oct. 24, 1944
"Dear Aunt Ruth:
Have been moving about now for months and weeks and days - and by
chance - part by accident - in all this time - some mail caught up with me,
and it was your "Michigan Daily." Quite a surprise and pleasant no end - then
I moved to a new address and hope other copies come.
While a transient and reading the Dailys - met up with some other Michigan
men (before my time) and even tho it was years since heard or saw A.A. they
ate up the papers with a passion. More valuable than money out here. Common
interest and memories.
Just getting settled now (I hope) and hope I can stay at the present position.
Nice location and fine weather (in comparison) and well - o.k. in general.
Time to 'punch the clock' now. Will let you know how things are. I really
appreciate your sending "The Daily" way out here in New Guinea and will never
be able to thank you enough.
Hope you have a desirable winter (as for weather).
Most grateful,
John D. Woolever (Ensign)"
