Wolverine Puckmen Prepare
For Two Games This Week
Rematch with Windsor Spitfires To Be Held
Friday; Windsor Colonials To Compete Here

After a brief one day vacation from
practice following their victory over
the Owen Sound Mohawks last Sat-
urday evening, the Wolverine puck-
ment settled down to more hard work
yesterday in preparation for two con-
tests this coming weekend.
Play Windsor Again
Friday evening Michigan's young
hockey team will journey to Windsor,
Canada to play a rematch game with
the Windsor Spitfires whomn they de-
feated in the opening game here Sat-
urday. Coach Vic Heyliger's squad
will meet the Windsor Colonials at
8 p.m. here, on the Coliseum ice.
Although the Wolverines were vic-
torious over the Spitfires in their first
engagement, Heyliger warns that the
Windsorites have made considerable
improvement since then, winning
over a highly rated Stratford, Ont.
team 6-4 last week. Then too, the
Spitfires will be playing on home ice,

and that always is a big advantage in
hockey, the Wolverines' mentor
Cdlonials Strong
The Colonials, Saturday's oppon-
ents, are a Detroit sponsored team,
but their players are all from Wind-
sor. They reportedly have a strong
alub, although little is known about
them other than they will be playing
in the Michigan-Ontario amateur
league when that organization begins
competition later this month.
Meanwhile the Ivaize and Blue
Sextet will continue to concentrate on
the offensive angle this week, espe-
cially where shooting the puck is
concerned. Heyliger was enthusias-
tic about the squad's win over the
Mohawks and confessed that he
couldn't find much fault with his ag-

FOR THE SECOND TIME within a year, the ever busy rumor factory has
turned out a report that Clarence L. (Biggie) Munn, Michigan's football
line coach, will leave the University to accept a berth as head coach at
some other institution.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Munn would go to Iowa to
replace Elmer (Slip) Madigan, but the move never materialized. Clem
Crowe was signed to run the Hawk roost, and Munn stayed here in the
job he has held since 1938.
Now, the story goes, Munn may take over at Syracuse, where Ossie Solem
has been given the gate for failure to produce a winner. At least, the
reports say, Munn will be given first crack at the job.
It would be a little premature to drag out the crying towels and
lament the departure of Munn. As far as anyone knows, the Wolverine
mentor has not yet been tendered an official offer by the Syracuse
athletic department.
Of course, if Munn should decide to sever his connections here, his
loss would be a proper occasion for mourning on the part of every Wolverine
football supporter. For Munn's contribution to Michigan's not inconsider-
able grid success of recent years cannot be minimized.
But we can see no use in getting all hot and bothered yet awhile.
The situation, as we see it, contains no element of definiteness whatso-
ever. Thus far, the whole thing is still in the rumor stage.
FURTHER ACTION, if any, will probably not be taken until Munn returns
to Ann Arbor at the end of the week from his current lecture tour. If
Syracuse does make him an offer, it will almost certainly come at that time.
Munn's acceptance of any such proposition is also problematical. Even
though he has said he will "consider" a head coaching job, the fact that he
reportedly turned down a similar position at Iowa shows that he is not
jumping at just anything that comes along.
Syracuse is not the power in the football world that Michigan is.
Anyway you look at it, Syracuse is definitely among the second-raters
on the gridiron. Whether a position as head coach at such an institu-
tion is really an advancement over a line coaching berth at a school
recognized as one of the traditional grid strongholds is a debatable point.
Munn will have to decide that point, along with a lot of others, if he
is approached by Syracuse. Until that happens, we can only adopt the
course characterized by war correspondents as "watchful waiting."

Thinclads Hold
Annual Track
Trials Friday
Veterans, Freshmen
Have Team in Meet
Wolverine track fans will have
their first opportunity to see the
Michigan thinclads in action at 7:30
this Friday night when the annual
intra-squad time trials will be held
in the Field House between a team of
"old timers" and one of freshmen.
Swanson Named Captain
Elmer Swanson, hurdler from the
1942-44.squads will captain the team
of veterans coached by Dan Kinsey,
while Hack Copeland will be the
captain of the newcomers coached
by Dean Rockwell. The Michigan
coach Ken Doherty will act as time-
keeper and scorer.
The annual event has always
served as a method of determining
what the - various members of the
team can do under conditions re-
senbling actual meets.
Seven Races Slated
Seven running events and four
field events are scheduled for the eve-
ning. They are the 65-yard high and
low hurdles, the 60-yard dash, the
quarter, half, one mile and two mile
runs, and the pole vault, shot put,
and high and broad jumps.
Some of the more promising fresh-
man to see action on Friday night
will be Hack Copeland and Bob
Swain, in the 60, and Bob Shipp, who
runs both the dash and 440. Bill
Haidler, who has turned in the best
time to date in the 440, Ron Soble,
and Bob Sergeson are competing for
positions running the quarter mile.
The 880 will see newcomers Dave
Hess, Herb Barten, and Joe Shea
competing against lettermen, while
Barten will also run the mile event.
Bob Zaworski and Dean Voegtlen
will run the two mile.

Big Ten Champs Qpen
Season Here Saturda
Eiglt Letterneii, Vets, Forni Nucleus
Of Squad; Mann's Son Among Starters
With dual competition less than a month away Michigan's Big Ten
swimming champions will make their 1945-46 bow Saturday night in the
Michigan State A.A.U. championships at the Intramural Building pool.
In this initial test of the season for the Maize and Blue splashers Coach
Matt Mann will exhibit most of his squad of 1944-45 lettermen, returning
war veterans and promising freshmen. Eight men's events have been slated
on the program and the Wolverines"

will compete in all of them.
The return of divers Alex Canja
and Gil Evans from the service makes
diving one ofMann's brightest spots
this year. These two Maize and Blue

Harrison, Freshman Cager,
Leads Teammates in Scoring

In the free-style competition Mann
has been blessed with a strong array
of talent. Letterman Charley Fries
heads the Michigan free-stylers witp
Dick Weinberg, Dave Tittle, Chuck
Moss, Jay Sanford, Frank Maple, Art
Johnson and Chuck Barnes joining
him in the 50-yard free-style field.
Mann's Son To Swim
The 220-yard free-sbyle race will
mark the debut of Matt Mann III,
son of the Wolverine mentor, in Maize
and Blue colors. Young Mann was an
outstanding swimmer last year at
University High School. Splashing
with him in the 220 will be Moss and
Neville Adams.
Eight Wolverines headed by letter-
man Heini Kessler will represent the
Maize and Blue in the 100-yard breast
stroke event. They are Bob Matters,
Bob Sohl, Bob Michels, Fred Ander-
son, Hank Kuhlman, Stan Goldberg,
and Nap Franico. Matters will also
swim the 100-yard back-stroke event
with teammates Willard Metcalf, Del
Loeffler and Ed Stone.
Two Handicaps Scheduled
Two Wolverine relay teams will be
entered in the 400-yard free-style re-
lay. Tittle, Weiiberg, Mann and Moss
will probably make up one quartet
with Sanford, Johnson, Adams and
Fries opposing them.
Two handicapraces, a 75-yard free-
style and a 75-yard individual medley,
will complete the competition.

Freshman Bob Harrison, young
Michigan basketball star, has com-
piled the highest individual scoring
record on the Wolverine basketball
squad to date, with a total of 49
points resulting from 22 field goals
and five free throws.
Selbo Rates Second
Harrison is followed by center Glen
Selbo, who has racked up 39 points
and Dave Strack, varsity guard, with
Munn Silent As
Solem Vacates
No further developments were re-
ported yesterday on the rumored
offer of the head coaching job by
Syracuse University officials to Clar-
ence (Biggie) Munn, Michigan line
Munn, who is reportedly slated to
get first bid on the position vacated
by Ossie Solem, is still in Northern
Michigan on a football lecture toter,
and has made no statement on the
rumor further than that he is "inter-
ested." He is expected to return here
sometime this weekend.
Head Coach H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler,
is also out of town on a lecture trip,
and could not be reached for com-
ment on the Munn report.

24. Feinberg and Mullaney rate
fourth and fifth in the scoring run
with 17 and 16 points respectively.
The neophite freshman forward,
Harrison, who hails from Toledo, O.,
where he led his high school squad
through asuccessful schedule, start-
ed his first season of .collegiate com-
petition off with a bang. In the open-
er against Central Michigan Harrison
led both teams"in the scoring column,
coming out of the tilt with 19 points
under his belt from eight goals and
three charity tosses.
Scores 15 Against- State
Michigan State's quintet, which
was toppled by the Wolverines,.47-39,
failed to stop -the- youthful cager, who
increased his total bag by 15, as a re-
sult of seven baskets plus one gift
shot. Last Saturday's Western Mich-
igan encounter saw Harrison and
Selbo tie for top honors, with 15
points apiece. All of Harrison's points
were compiled in the first half, since
he was put out of the game on a foul,
which prevented him from increasing
his margin in the second frame.

.... the season rolls around
color-bearers of the 1942-43 team
should provide plenty of diving thrills
Saturday. Rounding out the field of
Wolverine divers will be Ralph Trim-
born and Bill Smith.

clad, who is co-ordinator of the idea

hope almost all of the lettermen from
all teams will be able to attend the

ganizing, now all we need is the sup-
port of the men who hold the let-
ters." Among the plans are social
events both for M Club members

role in campus affairs, "a role that
the M Club should hold."
