Fifth Straight Win
Sought by Sextet
Gunning for its fifth straight win
and a clean slate for this year's half
of the hockey campaign, Coach Vic
Heyliger's young sextet will take the
ice at 8 p.m. today to do battle with
the Canadians from Sault Sainte
Marie, Ont. in the final game for 1945
for the Wolverines.
Coach Heyliger has indicated plans
to start the first line consisting of
Wally Gacek at center and Walt
Grant and Neil Celley at the wings.
Celley was injured slightly when he
fell on the ice in front of the Coli-
seum, Tuesday, but is expected to be
ready for tonight's game.
High Scorers To See Action
Alternating with this line, the
high-scoring trio of Gord MacMillan,
Bill Jacobson, and Al Renfrew will
also see much action. This combina-
tion, centered by MacMillan has
scored 13 of the27 goals the Wol-
verines have scored in the four games
already played. A third combination
will have Chet Kuznier at center with
Dick Starrak and Bob Arnot at the
As usual, the goal position will be
handled by Jack MacInnes. In the
Auto Club contest MacInnes was
phenominal according to Heyliger
who termed his efforts as good as
anything he had ever seen in college
At Full Strength
For the first time this season,
Michigan will have its defense at full
strength. Clem Cossalter and Connie
Hill are slated to start, with Cossal-
ter fully recovered from his injury
incurred two weeks ago. Bob Mar-
shall and Ross Smith will alternate
with the starting defense and Jim
Johnson may also see action.
Heyliger warns that the Soo puck-
men are liable to be plenty tough for
his club, especially if last year's rec-
ord is any indication of the Cana-
dian's strength.

Humes May
Run Under
Rule Change
CHICAGO, Dec. 19-(P)-A half-
dozen midwestern athletes, who al-
ready have completed three years of
varsity competition, today were
handed a stay of eligibility execution
by the Big Ten.
Commissioner Kenneth (Tug) Wil-
son said the Conference had recon-
sidered in a mail poll recent legisla-
tion which would have made immedi-
ately ineligible such basketball stars
as George Mikan, 6-ft. 9-in De Paul
University center, and Ned Postels,
guard of Iowa's championship team.
Faculty representatives of all 10
League schools, Wilson said, agreed
that the legislation shall not be-
come effective until the end of the
current winter sports season. The
new rule provides that athletes
who have completed three years of
competition during the war period,
excluding play as freshmen or mili-
tary trainees, are not eligible for
further competition.
The poll was requested by member
schools and independents which op-
e'rate under the Big Ten code. They
contended immediate application of
the rule was unfair to coaches and
athletes, who already had started the
winter season.
The eligibility extension also
benefitted basketballers Max Mohr
of Minnesota and Bob Rosendahl of
Marquette, and Big Ten track
stars, Bob and Ross Hume, Michi-
gan's ace distance performers, and
Bob Fitch of Minnesota, who may
compete during the indoor track
Wilson stressed that another new
Big Ten rule banning athletes who
completed three years competition
prior to the conference's emergency
period was not affected by the mail

In keeping with the spirit of Yule
and in the wake of a 48-32 lashing
administered to Utah Michigan's
basketball s.quad is looking forward
to its Big Ten cage opener against
Indiana Saturday night at Yost Field
The Hoosiers are rated a dark
horse entry in the Conference race.
So far this season Indiana has won
four games while dropping only one.
The single loss came at the hands of
a strong Louisville quintet. In its
other games the Hoosiers sent Camp
Atterbury down to defeat on two
occasions, beat Washington Univer-
sity and in its last contest whipped
a highly rated Cincinnati five, 54-44.

Risen Leads Bucks
The Buckeyes are rated by many as
the team to beat in this year's con-
ference play. With the return of 6
ft. 9 in. center Arnold "Stilts" Risen
and two guards who have been oper-
ating together for three years in Paul
Huston and grid all-American War-
ren Amling, the Buckeyes send an ex-
perienced hoop squad on the court.
This season the Bucks won three
and lost one in pre-Conference play,
the loss coming at the hands of a
star studded, undefeated Wright
Field outfit.
