Michigan Rinksters Face,
Vickers A. C. in First Tilt
Veterans Greer, Jenswold, Henderson, and
Mixer To Take to Ice for Maize and Blue
The Maize and Blue hockey team will oppose the Vickers A. C. squad
in the opening tilt of the 1945 season at 8:00 p. m. tonight .at the Michigan
Skating Rink.
The team that will take the ice this evening will be composed of four
veterans from the 1944 sextet and they are Captain Ted Greer, stellar
center, John. Jenswold who will fill the left wing position, Bob Henderson
who will be seen at left defense, and Dick Mixer who will again be in the
nets. The two new members of the squad that will face Michigan hockey
fans for the first time are Fred Lounsberry at right wing, and Francis All-
man right defenseman.
In reserve. Coach Vic Heyliger has- -

Indiana connected for 11 out of 13,
while Michigan garnered seven out ,
of ten.
At the outset of the second half
the Wolverines applied the pressure
and surged ahead, 41-34, thanks to!
Lund's three baskets. Two buckets
by Indiana's Kralovansky mixed in'
with two free throws by Lund, main-

The . 1945 Maize and Blue sextet
hopes to top the record of last year's
squad which won five and lost three
matches. One of the defeats was in-
curred by the Vickers A. C. team
which gives indications of being even
stronger this year.
Heyliger said that the "men to
watch" on the Vickers squad are1
Frank Reuelle who saw action with
the Indianapolis Capitals in the Am-
erican Hockey League in 1944, and
Jim Baudino, center, who has estab-
lished quite a reputation in amateur
hockey circles.
The earlier practice sessions of
the season have centered Around
defense strategy, but in later
scrimmages coach Heyliger has
been stressing passing attacks and
shooting accuracy. Heyliger stat-
ea that the pucksters have shown
great improvement since the first
fit the season.
In last year s opener, the Wolver-
ine pucksters were outclassed by a
superior Canadian team, the London
A. C. and went down by a score of
4-1. Ted Greer saved the Michigan
team from a whitewash by netting
a goal in the last five minutes of the
fourth period. Also, goalie Dick
Mixer did a remarkable job of tend-
ing the nets by making 32 saves
against 19 for London. The great

H~old Carnival
EAST LANSING. Jan. 5.- (')-
Ralph H. Young, Michigan State
College Athletics Director, an-
nounced today that the Michigan
Track Carnival will be held in Yost
Field House in Ann Arbor this year,
instead of at its traditional home in
East Lansing.
Young said the change is not per-
manent and that "there has been
n discussion of alternating the meet
between Ann Arbor and East Lan-
sing. He said the college planned to
stage it in future years.
He said the University of Michigan
asked if they could put it on this
year, and because "our track sched-
ule was satisfactory without it this
year, we said it would be agreeable
with us."
This will be the 24th year of the
classic, resuming after a year's inter-
ruption because of the war.
Young said Ohio State, Purdue,
Notre Dame, Marquette University,
prake, Michigan, Michigan State
and several smaller schools expect to
send contestants to vie for the indi-
vidual prizes which will be awarded.

difference in amount of saves of the
two teams indicates that Michigan
was playing, for the most part, a
defensive game.
Even though the Michigan ice
team dropped the Vickers match
last year 4-3, the team played a
hard fought contest. During the
first two periods, the Wolverines
held the visitors to a 2-2 tie, but
the stumbling block came in the
third period when the Vickers
crew scored the winning markers.
In the first half of the game, the
skaters out played their opponents
in almost every turn, catching each
others passes and backhecking care-
fully, but in the following period the
Maize and Blue sextet lost the zest
they had displayed in the earlier
periods and there were several exam-
ples of sloppy stick work.
During the remainder of the game,
the puck stayed consistently on Mich-
igan ice and it was only due to the
well-timed cage minding of Mixer
that the Wolverines managed to hold
off the concentrated Vickers drive.
Cagers To Play
Illinois Tonight
At Champaign
Illini Have All-Veteranj
Five for Michigan Tilt
Following its narrow 54-53 victory
over Indiana, a 10-man Michigan
basketball squad, minus the services
of Keith Harder and Bill Gregor who
are unable to make the trip owing I
to Navy restrictions, entrains for
Champaign, Ill. where' it will meet a
powerful Illinois five in an effort to
chalk up its second Big Ten win in
three starts.
Although not given much noticeI
by the pre-season dopesters, the{
Illini have set themselves up as one
of the teams to beat in the Con-
ference by virtue of an excellentj
pre-season record which shows vic-
tories over two of the strongest
teams in the Mid-West.
Coach Doug Mills' all-veteran
starting five has emerged on the long
end of the score in two of three con-
tests with Great Lakes, always a for-
midable opponent, and has split a
pair of decisions with DePaul, long a
power in Mid-Western basketball.
In addition, the Ilmini trounced
Chanute Field and Nebraska Uni-
versity for a season's record of five
wins in seven outings. Tonight's
affair with Michigan will be their
first start in Big Ten play in an
attempt to better their showing of
last year when the best they could
do was sixth place in the Confer-
The Illinois starting lineup av-
erages slightly less than 6 ft. 2 in,
in height, which will give them an
approximate two-inch advantage
over the Wolverines. Tallest man
on the first five is Don Delaney, 6
Ift 4 in. veteran center.
At forwards for Illinois are How-
ard Judson and Jake Staab, both
letter-winners from last year. Jud-
son held down a starting berth, while
Staab was a reserve who saw consid-
erable action.
Delaney also was a member of the
first five in 1943-44, and both guards,
Jim Seyler and Junior Kirk, started
in most of Illinois' games last win-
ter. Thus, Mills has an all-veteran
lineup to throw against the inexperi-
enced Wolverines, who have only one
letterman, Don Lund, on the squad,
Scouting reports from the Mich-
igan coaching staff indicate that
Mills has a young, scrappy outfit cap-
able of giving any team a lot of
The Wolverines will probably pre-
sent the same lineup against Illi-

nois which took the floor for the
Indiana game last night, barring
last-minute changes. As both squads
are well-stocked with reserves, it is
probable that 10 or 11 men will see
action for each side.

Tonight at 8 p.m. in the Michigan
Pool, the Wolverine tankmen will go
fort, in their first scheduled meet.
against a powerful and fighting Blue-
jacket squad from Great Lakes X'av-
al Training Base.
The Sailors have already proved
their strength, by dint of a smashing
47-15 triumph over the Wildcats of1
Northwestern, while the Maize and
Blue have as yet not encountered
any big-time competiton.I
Stanley Bryda, Great Lakes swim-
ming coach and one-time diving ace
for the Detroit Athletic Club, has a
large assortment of former colle-
giate aquaticstars on the gob team,
and they should provide keen compe-
tition for the championship-aspiring
Bluejackets Powerful
The Bluejackets are very powerful
in all departments, but especially so
in the freestyle. Achilles Pulakos,'
former University of Michigan mer-
man, is capable of performing favor-
ably in all distances, and is a threat
wherever he swims. He also holds
down number three slot in the 400-1
yard freestyle relay, and performs in;
the same capacity in the 300-yard
medley relay.
The short distance freestyler, who
will probably be lined up against the'
Maize and Blue's Mert Church and
Charlie Fries, is the Southern Cali-
fornia ace, George Dowell, who also
competes on the 400-yard freestyle
relay team. Arnie Pylkas, a Detroiter
from Northwestern High School, and
Al Milner from Cincinnati partici-
pate in the distance events and along'
with Doug Robinson and Sid Craiger,
the other members of the freestyle
relay team, constitute the remainder
of the sailors' freestyle attack.
Mondro, Mowen Are Breaststrokers
In the breaststroke, the, Navy's
whole strength is centered around
Mondro and Jim Mowen. Mondro, a
Detroiter from Wayne University,
made an excellent showing against
Northwestern two weeks ago, and
may push Kessler all the way. He
also swims the breaststroke in the
300-yard medley relay. Mowen, a
product of Tilden Tech High School
in Chicago, swims the 200-yard
The Bluejackets' main specialists
in the backstroke events are Doug
Robinson of Iowa State and Everett
Turley of Lawrence, who will both
compete in the 150-yard distance.
Robinson also competes in 400-yard
freestyle relay, while Turley holds
down the backstroke post in the
300-yard medley relay. Both these
boys showed fine form in the Wildcat
meet and are slated to be a tough
obstacle to the Michigan hopes to-

here today to draft a new major
league agreement but ostensibly con-
curred only in setting a date for
another huddle which will be held in
New York Feb. 2.
Whatever sentiments were ex-
pressed by five officials from each
league regarding a pact to replace
the 25-year-old agreement under
which the late Kenesaw Mountain
Landis ruled baseball with an iron
hand were not disclosed after a
three-hour. closed session.
Will Harridge, American League
president, who with Ford Frick, Na-

said the agreement was merely "dis-
cussed generally" today and will be
whipped into formal shape for pre-

"There is nothing tentative about
our set-up," the former Syracuse,

already been granted franchises,
have leased stadiums in which to
play and are eager to start. Two

Denver and Houston had reported
prospects good for entering the loop.
