Hockey Team Hopes To End
Long Gopher Mastery on lce
Invaders Boast Veteran, Freshman Lines;
Wolverines To Rely on Speed, Playmaking
By DES IOWARTH
Wolverine hockey fans who have patiently waited for eight long years
to see a Michigan sextet defeat Minnesota on the Coliseum ice may finally
be rewarded this weekend when Coach Vic Heyliger's squad battles the
Golden Gophers in a two-game series
For years the Gophers under Coach Larry Armstrong have held com-
plete mastery over the Maize and Blue puckmen, often piling up scores
running into two figures. But this may be the year for Michigan to turn
the trick Jn the North.men. The.,n1_ < W.

Franks Norninate
By BILL MULLENDORE
Daily Sports Editor
FOR all we know, nominations for the position of successor to Clarence
(Biggie) Munn as Michigan line coach have already been closed.
Assuming they are still open, we would like to add still another candi-
date to the list, even though we realize we are running a good chance of
wasting our ballot.
Our nominee is Julius Franks, Michigan's All-American guard in
1942, one of the finest linemen ever produced at this or any other in-
stitution. To our way of thinking, the Athletic Department could make
no better choice.
All this is predicated on the assumptions, first, that Franks is physi-
cally able to handle the job, and, second, that he would be willing to give
up, at least temporarily, his plans to become a dentist. At this writing, we
have no way of proving either assumption.
Franks was released from the University Hospitai just this past fall,
after fighting and winning a grim three-year battle against perhaps
the most terrible of medical foes-tuberculosis. He has resumed his
studies in the Dental School, but whether he has recovered sufficiently
to undertake such a strenuous job as coaching football, we do not know.
FRANKS, as we have said, was as good a lineman as ever played football, in
our estimation. Big, rugged, fast, and powerful, he was perhaps the most

d for Line Coach
consistent forward Michigan has had in the eight years of Coach Fritz Cris-
ler's administration. He was one of the few players of whom it could be
said, "He never played a bad game."
Unfortunately, Franks was deprived of his last, and probably his
greatest, year of competition when disaster struck in the form of tuber-
culosis. It has always been a source of wonder to all observers that the
barrel-chested Negro, 220 pounds of solid muscle, should have been
struck by the disease, but he was, all the same.

verines have an outstanding record
with nine wins and no defeats. Min-
nesota has a .500 average, having won
twice from Fort William, Ont., while
dropping two contests to St. James
of Winnipeg.
Has Fast Forward Line
Michligan has two of the best for-
ward lines evr to play on the Coli-
seum ice. Both are speedy, and both
excellent playmakers. Gord Mac-
Millan centers one line with Al Ren-
frew and Bill Jacobson on the wings.
Wally Gacek, Neil Celley and Walt
Grant form the second combination.
To match these speed merchants
the Gophers have a veteran line and
one composed of freshmen. Bob
Fleming, Bob Carley and Brad
Thompson are the lettermen on the
Gophers' first line. In reserve they
will have Pat Finnegan, Dennis Rolle
and Cal Engstad.
Hill Leads Defense
At the defense posts the Maize and
Blue have four standouts. Captain
Connie Hill, despite his small stature,
is a clever back-checker and the
team's spark-plug. Bob Marshall is
big and rugged. Clem Cossalter and
Ross Smith are also hard-checking
stalwarts.
Al Opsahl, a junior will be the
Gopher's power on defense, teaming
with Jack O'Brien, Bud Frick, Dick
Roberts, or Jeff Burman. Burman
and Frick are highly-rated fresh-
men. Opsahl has been termed by
Coach Armstrong as one of the best
college defensemen he has ever seen.!
He is playing his third year for Min-
nesota.
Either Duff McDermid, a fresh-
man, or letterman Red McCabe will
be in the nets for the Gophers. Rated
on an even par by Coach Armstrong,1
both will probably see action in the
two game series. Jack Macnnes will'
again draw the goalie assignment forI
the Wolverines.l

SAME OLD STORY:
Wolverines, O
Conference Sw
By CLARK BAKER
With another Conference swim-
ming season in full swing it looks like
Michigan and Ohio State will fight it
out again for top tank honors.
Reports from Columbus indicate'
that the Wolverines, defendingbtheir -
Big Ten crown, will face a better-
balanced Buckeye squad than the
outfit which last year bowed to the
Maize and Blue, 55-43, for the Con-
Terence title and then went on to
turn the tables on Matt Mann's crew
in the NCAA meet.
Plenty Of Free Stylers
Freestylers are abundant in the
Big Ten this year with Michigan,
Ohio State, Illinois and Iowa 'all
boasting crack sprinters. Of lasta
year's point-winner.s in the 50- and'
100-yard free style events only Wol-
verine Charley Fries and Illini ace,
John Haulenbeek, are back. Out-
standing newcomers are Michigan's
Dick Weinberg, Iowa's Kenny Marsh
and Ohio State's Halo Hirose.
Keo Nakama, Buckeye free styler
who monopolized the distance events
for three years, is no longer around.
Ready to step into Nakama's shoes is
Wolverine Matt Mann, Jr. who has
already equalled the Hawaiian's win-
ning time for last year's Conference
440-yard free style event. North-
western's Graham Davis, a point win-
ner last year, is another challenger
in the 220 and 440 events.

ter and may .be called to duty soon

Three Veterans Oack
That leaves the Wolverine track
coach with the problem of building'
up a team with men with little or
no experience. Bob Thomason,
Archie Parsons, and Chuck Low are
back from last year's squad. All of
these men showed promise last year
while turning in capable perform-I
ances whenever called upon but are
not yet stars.
Thomason is the youngest man
ever to compete on any varsity team
as a 16-year-old freshman. Today
the Asbury Park, N.J.,athlete is
probably the most experienced 17
year old in the country. In his first
year for the Maize and Blue he picked
up a tie for second in the Conference
Indoor Championships mile run, and
a third in the National AAU 1,5001
yard run in New York.j
Thomason Runs Half, Too
For most of his cinder career
Thomason has been a miler, but he
also does a competent job in the half
mile. The Michigan coach says of his
protege "Bob showed great improve-
ment in being one of the most con-
sistent point winners on the team last
year. He has a fine running style and.
good competitive spirit. He may de-
velop into a real star."
The second of the possible replace-
ments for the "dead heat" Humes is
Parsons, who came to Michigan
from New York University. Parsons
was a sophomore sensation last year
and caused Doherty to comment "He
is as good as the Humes were in their
second year."
Parsons Looks Good
Archie also is a thinclad who is al-
most equally competent in both the
half mile events. Parsons best eventr
so far has been a 1:55.3 half turned
in at the Purdue meet outdoors last
year.
The third of the men to whom'
Doherty is looking to fill the shoes of'
the men who last year amassed thej
amazing total of 39 out of 45 points
in the three distance events is a
freshman out of Chicago, Herb Bar-
ten. Barten last year was high school
mile champion in his home town.
Doherty Likes Trio

Parsons are definite possibilities."
