Basketball Team Faces Illini;
Natators Oppose Great Lakes
Untried Tankmen ;Both Squads Seek

Sextet's Sixth Straight Victory
Sparked by Celley, MacMillan
Michigan Scores Three in First Period,
One in Second, and Two in Third Frames
Starting the New Year in a winning manner, Michigan's unbeaten
hockey squad ran its victory string to six games as they defeated De LaSalle
Juniors of Toronto, 6-3, last night at the Coliseum.
The Wolverines started slowly, but midway through the first period they
struck for three quick goals and were never headed after that. The Juniors,
fighting all the way, scored one goal in the second period and two in the
fni Nibt Cnr hVi H T-viorr~ #.'

Meet Sailor Stars ,
Michigan's swinming team will in-
augurate its 1946 season by playing
host to Great Lakes' natators tomor-
row night at the Sports Building pool.
The Wolverines will be out to end
the Sailors' tank supremacy in this,
the fifth meeting of the two squads.
In 1944 Great Lakes' great National
Championship outfit chalked up a
pair of victories at the expense of
Coach Matt Mann's crew while last
year the rivals came out even in their
two engagements.
Sailors Boast Stars
Coached by Dobby Burton, Wolver-
ine swimming captain in 1941-42, the
invaders will display a star-studded
aggregation that has won its only
start of the season from Northwest-
ern, 54-29. The Maize and Blue will
pin their hopes on freshmen and a
handful of veterans.
Top man on the Sailor roster is
Walt 4.is, free-styler who last year
whipped Yale's century world record-
holder, Alan Ford, for the 100-yard
National AAU title. Ris has just
joined the Great Lakes squad from
Notie Dame where he had been in-
structing in swimming for the Navy.
Girdes Swims Freestyleu
The Sailors have a couple more
free-stylers in Paul Girdes and Tom-
my Gastineau, who should give the
Wolverines a rough time. Girdes
copped the 50-yard crown in the 1945
AAU junior championships and
splashed to wins in the 50 and 100
against Northwestern. Gastineau also
scored a double against the Wildcats,
taking the 220- and 440-yard free-
style events.
Burton, who is no stranger to Maize
and Blue fans, will probably swim
against his alma mater in the free-
style sprints. Against the invaders'
array of free-stylers Mann will use
Dick Weinberg, Chuck Fries, Dave
Titt~e, Chuck Moss, Jan Sanford,
Chuck Barnes, Matt Mann, Jr., Nev-
ille Adams and Lou Kivi.
Weedan AAU Junior Champ
Ai other AAU junior champ, back-
stroker Jack Weedan, will also per-
form for Great Lakes. Opposing Wee-
dan the Maize and Blue will have
Willard Metcalf, Gordon Pulford and
Ed Stone. In the breaststroke the
Sailors' Charles Solberg will face
Michigan's Bob Matters, Heini Kess-
ler, Bob Sohl and Bob Michels.
In the low-board diving event the
visitors will present Carl Quaintance
who last year garnered a first and a
second in the two meets against Mich-
igan. Wolverine hopes will ride with
Alex Canja, Gil Evans and Ralph

First Big Ten Win j
Michigan's hoopsters, anxious to
get back on the victory trail after two
consecutive defeats at the hands of
Indiana and Ohio State respectively,
have been drilling hard for Satur-
day's clash with a strong Illinois
Oosterbaan Confident
"We've a very good chance against
Illinois," Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
said. "We were just as good, and even
better than Indiana at times, two
Saturdays ago. Our only bad game
was against Ohio last week."
Illinois boasts a strong, youthful
hoop aggregation with a record of
seven wins and three losses. Victories
include a sensational 56-37 upset
over De Paul's great basketball squad.
None of the Illini's losses need cause
coach Doug Mills any embarrass-
ment. Iowa eked out a two-point win
in a thriller, while strong Ohio State
and Wright Field squads both topped
Illinois by four-point margins. 56-52
and 50-46 respectively.
Lrose in Overtime
During the Christmas vacation
Michigan was toppled from the ranks
of the undefeated by Indiana in a
closely contested overtime battle,
67-58. The game's high scorer was
Wolverine forward Glen Selbo with
20 points. Don Wittenbraker, captain
and center for the Hoosiers, had a
totalnof 16 while leading his squad
to victory. The game was a see-saw
battle all the way with theascore
32-31, in favor of Michigan, at the
half. A Hoosier basket swished
through the hoop at the final horn,
to tie the contest, 58-58, but the
overtime period saw Indiana surge to1
a 67-58 win.
Buckeyes Take Wolverines
One week later at Columbus, Ohio
the hoopsters again met up with
stern opposition, going down to de-
feat at the hands of the Buckeyes,1
57-40. Arnold "Stilts" Risen led his
mates to victory and copped the eve-
ning's scoring honors racking up 15
markers. Little Don Snyder, 5 ft.
6 in. forward, was second with 12
points. No Mictiigan man scored
more than eight points. Harrison
was the lone Wolverine to reach
that figure with Elliot and Selbo,
scoring seven.
Oosterbaan revealed that a definite
starting quintet has been decided
upon with Selbo and Mullaney at for-1
wards, Strack and Elliot at guards
and Harrison, the team's high scorer,
at center. An ankle injury which has
shelved Gordon Rosencrans was re-
ported. Rosencrans is a guard who
has showed plenty of promise in
practice. I

matched them goal for goal.
Neil Celley opened the scoring for
the Maize and Blue puckmen, climax-
ing a ganging attack on the De La-
Salle goal after Connie Hill set up
the play, laying a pass on Celley's
stick in fi'ont of the net.
Hill Penalized
Hill was sent off the ice for inter-
ference a minute later, and De La-
Salle tried to even the count on a
power play. But Chet Kuznier and
Bob Arnot broke away on goalie Al
Kahnert for Michigan's second score.
Arnot took Kuznier's pass and beat
the Toronto net-minder with a high
shot to the far corner of the net.
The high-scoring line of Gord
MacMillan, Bill Jacobson and Al
Renfrew added a third goal at 15:20
with Renfrew getting credit for the
marker and MacMillan and Jacobson
Quackenbush Scores
Both teams performedsluggishly in
the second stanza until Mike Quack-
enbush, brother of Detroit Red
Wings' Bill Quackenbush scored a
goal for the Juniors with Cantley
Spears assisting. Celley marked up
his second goal near the end of the
period on a hardshot which bounced
over Kahnert's shoulder as the goalie
fell in trying to save.
Each team tallied twice in the third
period. The Canadians scored a.fluke
goal when Michigan goalie Jack Mac-
f TH

Innes tried to clear from in front of
his net. The puck hit defenseman
Bob Marshall's skate and caromed
back into the Wolverine goal.
Seconds later MacMillan countered
again, with Jacobson and Renfw
again assisting. Later MacMillam
took a pass from Ross Smith for an-
other goal. De LaSalle matched this
with a goal in the final minit. of
play. Spears scored and Bill Ford got
the assist.

parlor pastimes.

Facing a dearth of material in the
quartei mile and broad jump, the
Michigan track team is back at work
after a two week layoff during the
Christmas vacation.
The loss of team captain Dick For-
restal and George Shepherd in the
quarter mile has left the burden of
the 440 and mile relay events on new-
comers to the Wolverine cinder
squad. Forrestal took second place in
the National Collegiate last year and
placed second in the Conference
meet, having covered the distance in
the creditable time of 48.2 .seconds.

good enough for third in the Big

Munni Gets Official
Bid from Syracuse
Line Coach Clarence L. (Biggie)
Munn, who was rumored as the lead-
ing choice for the head coaching job
at Syracuse University recently va-
cated by Ossie Solem, has disclosed
that he received an official offer of
the position from Syracuse over the!
Munn, who came here with Head
Coach H. O. (Fritz) Crisler in 1938
after serving as line coach at Syra-
cuse, stated that he will decide to ac-
cept or reject tthe job within the
"next few days." He will be in Grand
Rapids tomorrow, but will return
here Saturday, he stated yesterday.

As a result, Michigan has received
a great deal of bad publicity, the
sort of publicity no major institu-
tion can afford, no matter how un-
just it may be. The public unfor-
tunately does not require proof if
the charges are sufficiently sensa-
It seems to us this sort of "inci-
dent" could easily be avoided. We
recommend that the Athletic Depart-
ment, in all fairness to itself, the Uni-
versity, and the public, adopt as a
permanent policy the practice of us-
ing as officials only such persons as
are not connected in any way with
Such a practice should not be diffi-
cult to follow. Men in sufficient num-
bers should be available, even for the
most minor officiating jobs. Any ex-
tra expense incurred would, in our
opinion, be well repaid by the avoid-
ance of future controversies in con-
nection with similar "incidents."
