Wolverine Pucksters

Win and Lose


Maize and Blue Start Game with Second
Forward Wall; Waterloo's Goalie Injured
Michigan's hockey team cracked the .500 mark Saturday night, when
they defeated an injury-ridden Waterloo sextet, 5-4, in an overtime en-
counter for their third victory of the year against three losses.
The Wolverines, starting the game with the second forward wall,
failed to score until 1:45 of the second stanza when center Carl Sulen-
tich, assisted by wings Ted Greer and John Jenswold, shot the puck
past goalie Bruce, Bindernagle of Waterloo.

Fred Lounsberry, aided by Bob
Henderson, made Michigan's see-
ond goal of the evening in 7:05 of
the second period. Henderson,
with the assistance of Francis All-
man, made a kill of his own near
the end of the third period. Greer
and Jenswold made a goal apiece
in the overtime period to win the
tilt .for Michigan.
Waterloo's scoring was evenly spac-

McSpaden, Nelson
Tie in Tournament
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 12.- ()-
Gangling Harold (Jug) Mcpaden
faltered in the final round of the
New Orleans Open Golf Tournament
today, staggering in with a four-
over-par 76 for a 284 total to end in
a first place tie with Byron Nelson,
Toledo, O.
McSpaden shot his first sub-par
round of the $5,000 tournament on
the final 18 holes and had to score a
last-hole birdie to gain a tie with
Nelson who had finished earlier with
a one-under par 37-34--71.
At the 16th hole.and needing three
pars to win, McSpaden pushed his
second shot into a trap and finished
the hole with a bogey 5. He missed
a short putt for another bogey on
the 17th and made a great approach
to his tying birdie.
There will be a meeting of
Sphinx at 7:15 p. m. today in the
lounge of the West Quad.

Michigan, showing excellent sports
manship, agreed to have the rest per
iod that follows the second an
third stanzas held right then, so tha
their opponents would work on Bin
dernagle's leg in the hope that h
might be able to continue to play.
However, the injury proved to
painful and cumbersome and, al
though Bindernagle tried to finis
out the period, he prudently decide
to bench himself after two goal
were scored by the Maize and Blue.
Then Tom Claire took over the
job of defending the Waterloo net;
and because of his inexperience at
this position Michigan was able to
score the point that tied the tilt
and forced it into overtime and
the two tallies that finally won
the game for Michigan.
What would have happened i
Waterloo's goalie were uninjured is;
question that only a return encounte
can answer.
However, the Wolverines did th
best poke-checking seen here so fa
this year. Their body-checking an
passing were greatly improved ove
their former attempts.
Michigan's goalie, Dick Mixer,
turned in his best performance of
shot-stopping so far this season.
The points that were scored against
him can, to a great extent, be at-
tributed to the defensemen obscur-
ing the puck from his vision until
it was almost too late for him to
do anything in the line of block-
ing it.
The Maize and Blue forward wa
seemed to be almost unable to out
maneuver Waterloo's defensemen an
score and, for the most part, wer
forced to tally after the puck wa
already near the net. This was espe
cially noticeable in Greer's case. I
the previous games he was able t
outmaneuver one or two defensemen
but in this tilt he seemed unable t
do so.


Miss Only
One Event
Twenty-Nine Men
Place for Michigan
In summing up the Wolverine thin-
clads' performances in the Michigan
Relays Saturday night, the scoring
column showed that 29 men placed
including every event on the program
except the 3-4 mile relay.
Michigan Had 85 Points
This means that had team scoring
been kept, Michigan would have grab-
bed first honors with 85 points, Ohio
State second with 54, Notre Dame
third with 47, and Purdue fourth withj
40. Western Michigan, Michigan
State, Marquette, and Case would
have followed up in that order.
According to performances so far
this season, practice and meet, fif-
teen men on the Michigan squad
made their best showing in the Relay
carnival. Of special note were Chuck
Lauritson, who reached 13' in the
pole vault, six inches higher than he
had ever gone previously.
Ted Balough, new timber-topper,
cut his time in the high hurdles
down to. :08.5, when he placed second
behind Wilmer Jackson of Ohio State.
In running the 3-4hmile in 3:19,
Dick Gehring sliced his best time
down by six seconds. He finished third
behind Bill Tully, of Notre Dame and
Bob Hume, last year's Wolverine cap-

Although the Maize and Blue squad
dominated the money spots, their
times were slow when compared to
former years, and individual per-
formances went to Ken Weisner,
Marquette high jump star, Ohio
f State's Wil Jackson, and Bill Lund,
Case broadjumper.
r Weisner, Central Collegiate Con-
ference champion last year, stole the
spotlight, when he tied Don Can-
e ham's Field House record of 6'6 3/8",
r and passed the Big Ten mark by one
d eighth of an inch.
r Both the low and high hurdle
crowns went to Jackson, and in tak-
ing both the events, he became the
meet's only double winner.
Bill Lund, competing for Case
School of Applied Science, had his
own way in the broadjump, winning
with a leap of 22'7'. Lund is the
present National A. A. U. champion.
Track Meet Saturday
It was announced yesterday, that
Saturday will see another track spec-
tacle take place in the Yost Field
l1 House, as two Michigan squads take
- on Great Lakes and Western Michi-
d gan, in two separate dual meets.
e This means that the whole Wolver-
.s ine aggregation will see action in
- preparation for the coming Confer-
n ence meets. Great Lakes has includ-
o ed in its roster, Grover Klemmer,
, holder of the world's record for the
o 400-yard meter dash. His mark of
46 seconds fiat has stood since 1941.

WALLY WEBER - Michigan's
wrestling mentor has, in his first
season in that capacity, produced
a squad that is a serious threat to
capture its second consecutive
Western Conference championship.
Matmnen Start
Preparing for
Big Ten Meet
Johnston, Galles Stay
Unbeaten All Season
After completing a gruelling dual
meet season last Saturday by draw-
ing with Minnesota, 14-14, Michi-
gan's wrestling team is preparing for
the most important meet of the seas-
on-the Conference Championship
Meet to be held in Evanston Friday
and Saturday of this week.
The Wolverines record against theI
six Big Ten teams that they engaged
is 3 wins, one loss, and 2 ties.
Against Minnesota last Saturday,
Michigan uncovered another pin
artist in Art Sachsel, who chalked
up his first fall of the campaign
by pinning Nick Togami in 4:38.
Bob Johnston then took an easy
decision over Bill Fritz to keep his
unbeaten string alive. However, Newt
Skillman went down to defeat in the
next match at the hands of Joe East-
ling of the Golden Gophers, thus
having his winning streak halted at
three straight.
Fed Booth put the Wolverines
back on the right side of the ledger
when he won a 11-3 decision over
Bob Jensen in the 145-pound class.
In the 155-pound division, unde-
feated Dick Nelson beat George Dar-
row, 6-2 and Ed Baker put the Go-
phers within two points of Michigan
as he scored a 9-4 decision over
Charles Telfer.
But dependable Jim Galles had
no trouble in subduing Chuck
Loudjeff to put the Wolverines
back into a five-point lead. How-
ever, Bill Aldworth of Minnesota
scored a fall over Phil Holcombe in
4:01 to knot the final count at
In preparation for the champion-
ships next week, Dick Freeman is at-
tempting to sweat down from 128
pounds to 121 pounds in order to
challenge Art Sachsel for leadership
in that bracket.
However, one difficulty that has
cropped up just recently is Charles
Telfer's orders to report for his out-
fitting in Detroit Saturday. If Tel-
fer can not get a postponement of
this order he will not be able to
compete in the Conference Meet Sat-
urday, thus depriving the Wolverines
of one of their standout grapplers.
De Paul Will lay
Sailors on Friday
CHICAGO, Feb. 12-(P)-DePaul
University's once-beaten Blue De-
mons, whose 6-foot, 9-inch George
Mikan has averaged more than 20
points in 18 games, put their current
No. 1 national basketball rating on
the line against the powerful Great
Lakes' Blue Jackets here Friday night.
The Bluejackets, coached by youth-
ful Forrest Anderson, former Stan-
ford star, have been one of the busiest
service quintets in the country. Now
nearing the end of a 37-game sched-
ule, the speedy Sailors have won 27
games and lost only four. They -have
averaged a game every other night
throughout the season.


'3I 'agers
Drop Two
Badgers, Wildcats
Defeat Wolverines
Hopes of Michigan's basketball
team for a .500 percentage record for
the current Big Ten season died over
the weekend as the Wolverines were
the victims of a 49-34 setback at the
hands of Northwestern Friday night
and a 55-44 defeat by Wisconsin the
following evening at Madison.
'M' Has .364 Percentage
These two losses brought the cag-
ers to a .364 percentage in Big Ten
competition with four victories and
seven defeats: a mark which will be
either raised or lowered, according to
the results of the last game of the
campaign Friday with Northwestern.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan, sum-
ming up the attitude of himself and
the team toward the disastrous week-
end, said that they were "disap-
pointed at the outcome." Ooster-
baan attributed the two losses mainly
to the fact that the Wolverines were
not shooting as well as earlier in the
Pointing to the statistics of the
Northwestern game, Oosterbaan said
that Michigan took 21 shots to 66
for the Wildcats, but emerged from
the contest with a meager 17 percent
average. This mark was more than
ten points below the usual 28 or 30
percent of shots which the Wolver-
ines are accustomed to sink in one
game, he noted.
With more chances than usual, the
quintet was unsuccessful in netting
the same kind of shots that they had
been attempting more effectively all
season. Even at Wisconsin, the Wol-
verines took more chances at the
basket than usual, although the Bad-
gers were also trying for a fair num-.
ber of markers.
Patterson Caused Downfall
Oosterbaan stated that Wisconsin's
Ray Patterson, playing in his fifth
year of Conference competition with
a record of several seasons at center
on the all-Big Ten squad, spelled the,
difference between victory and defeat
in Saturday's contest.
"If we had been playing up to our
usual standards, we would have beat-
en Wisconsin," Oosterbaan stated.
"The five men on the floor for Mich-
igan were ready for a tough fight, and
they played as hard as they had all
season. They battled their hearts!
The first half of the game at Mad-!
son was a see-saw affair, with the
lead changing hands eight times be-!
fore the Badgers achieved a 29-21
advantage over Michigan.

"Charlie Higgins deserves spe-
cial recognition for his freestyle
swimming in both relays," Mann
continued, "twice recording :56
time, his fastest of the season, and
six seconds better than his time in
the Great Lakes meet."
Long-distance man John Zimmer-
man again turned in a successful
performance in both the 220 and
440 freestyle encounters. At the be-
ginning of the former event Zimmer-
man secured a position at the heels
of Wolverine Captain, Mert Church,
retaining this spot throughout the
race to place second to his experienc-
ed team-mate.
In the 440 tilt the young Maize and
Blue charge finished two full lengths
of the pool ahead of his nearest op-
ponent, Victor Rotering of Minnesota,
to clinch a 5:26 victory.
Other outstanding Wolverine
contenders were breaststroker
S aRal Chubb and backstrokers
Harry Westerberg, and Ed Ftolk-
man. Chubb and. Fulkman reom-
bined their talents in the 300-yard
medley relay, with a resulting 3:09.5
triumpjh for the Michigan squad.
Fulkman pulled ahead of Gopher
Roland Tomssen, in the 100-yard
backstroke leg of this event, and
Chubb surprised everyone by holding
the early lead against Minnesota's
powerful breaststroker, Vernon Oje-
mpa. Higgins sewed-up the race for
the Maize and Blue in the freestyle
anchor leg.
Neophite, Westerberg, snared his
first honors of the year by placing
third to team-mate Gordon Pulford,
and Tommsen, in the 150-yard back-
stroke contest. As usual Michigan
stalwarts Church, Pulford, Chuck
Fries, and Bob Mowerson came
through with point-garnering per-
forniances for the Maize and Blue,
Church was top scorer of tie
meet, capturing first place honors
in the 220 and 100-yard freestyle
