As Wolverines Compete For Championship

Off to Cha-aign Toda

By HERB LORENZ
As the hockey season draws to a
close it seems fitting to extend
some sort of appreciation to those
who serve in silence.
Coach Vic Heyliger's Wolverine
hockey team will play the final
games of the current season this
week-end. It has been a success-
ful season from the standpoint of
games won, and for the fact that.
The Maize and Blue maintained
their hold on the mythical Con-
ference title. Much of the suc-
Netme fist
Sixteen Tits
Trip Through South
To Start '47 Season
Bob Dixon's first season as
Michigan tennis coach will be a
busy one as the Wolverines will
participate in 16 matches and the
Conference Championship tourna-
ment in a two month campaign.
. The season gets underway on
April 7, when Michigan makes a
four-match Southern tour, the
first since before the war.
The home season will begin on
April ,11, when Purdue, the first
of seven visiting squads, makes
its appearance. Michigan State,
the only team with two matches
booked against the Wolverines,
follow the Boilermakers.
Big Nine titles will go on the
block in a three-day tourney be-
ginning May 29.

Between Mich. and State Theatres

cess is due to the men who scrim-
mage the varsity but never play in
an official gome.
Pritula Is One
Some of these men you will rec-
ognize as having played in other
varsity sports at Michigan. Bill
Pritula, whom you will remember
as one of the stalwart linemen of
Crisler's eleven, is one of the regu-
lar practice players.
Another of the men who came
out after the football season fin-
ished is John Maturo. Maturo was
a first string lineman on the re-
serve team.
Al Nadeau and Tom Griffin are
a pair of forwards who have ex-
perienced the hard checks of Bob
Marshall and George Balestri
many times in their preparation
for a big game.
Milinowsky, Reserve Goalie
Paul Milinowsky has probably
had more goals scored on him than
any goalie this year, but only be-
cause he has played more time
against the goal-hungry Michigan
forwards. Milinowsky spends
every afternoon at the Coliseum as
the human target for Heyliger's
charges.
In Ross Smith Michigan for-
wards come up against one of the
scrappiest players pound for
pound anywhere. Smith plays for
the Metal Moulding team in the
International Hockey League and
has been termed one of the out-
standing prospects for the big
leagues in Detroit. Every after-
noon Smith may be seen giving
the regulars a real stiff workout.
LeRoy, MacArdle Show Well
Two additions from New Eng-
land have put in an appearance
this semester. John LeRoy and
Owen MacArdle. Both men have
showed very well in practice and
should be very helpful when next
fall rolls around.
These men offer not only oppo-
sition in practice, 'but under the
guidance and tutelage of Coach
Heyliger can be expected to be the
nucleus of coming teams.
Tigers Without Lake
LAKELAND, Fla., March 5-(P)
-The Detroit Tigers' spring camp
was still one man short of. com-
plete today as Shortstop 1lddie
Lake failed to arrive in time to
participate in a lengthy batting
and fielding practice. Lake, en-
route from his home on the Paci-
fic Coast, is expected momentar-
ily to bring the Tigers' roster to
its full 45-man strength.

lead Michigan to its 14th West-
ern Conference title.

Catching Gives
Coach Fisher
Chief Problem
Pitchers Make Up
Half of 1947 Squad
Catching will be one of coach
Ray Fisher's chief headaches this
month as he tries to speed the
Wolverine baseball squad into
shape before it embarks on its
first southern trip since 1941.
With last year's able receiver,
Elmer Swanson, lost to the pro-
fessional realm, Fisher had plan-
ned to switch Bob Chappuis from
right field where he spent last
season back to his customary spot
behind the plate. But that scheme
tottered when Chappuis found he
had to have an operation per-
formed on his ailing wrist which
had never healedeproperly after
he broke it last year. Of the six
or seven hopefuls fighting for the
position at present Fred Capoferi
and Harold Raymond were with
last year's squad.
Squad Trimmed to 80
Since, practice started a week
ago, Fisher has trimmed his squad
down to about eighty players half
of which are hurlers.
Of the nine returning letter men
who form the nucleus of the team
Cliff Wise, pitcher, Joe Soboleski
and Dom Tomasi, infielders, and
Jack Weisenberger, outfielder,
were here last year. Bob Weise
won. letters as an outfielder on
the 1943 and 1944 squads. Paul
White and Don Boor also were fly
chasers in 1942. The other letter
men are Charles Ketterer of the
1944 squad and Howard Wikel.
Bodycombe Looks Good
Dick Bodycombe who was listed
as a pitcher on last year's squad
has been looking good to his coach
this week in the batting cage. An-
other promising batter has been
freshman Ralph Morrison.
'47 Baseball Schedule

By MURRAY GRANT
The record books may be in for
a rough going-over come tomorrow
and Saturday when the outstand-
ing swimmers of the Western Con-
ference gather at Columbus to vie
for the championship of the Big
Nine.
Ohio State has been installed as
a heavy favorite, with most of
their championship 1946 squad
returning. But from performances
of various stellar tankmen
throughout the season it appears
virtually certain that a few rec-
ords will be smashed.
Stars Aplenty
Stars such as Jack Hill, Bill
Smith and Jim Counsilman of
Ohio State, Dick Maine of Iowa,
Bill Heusner of Northwestern and
Michigan's Harry Holiday, Bob
Sohl and Dick Weinberg have all
'turned in performances this year
that come close or surpass the ex-
isting Conference marks.
In the 50-yard freestyle, the rec-
ord of :23.1 was set by Waldemar
Tomski of Michigan in 1939. Al-
ready this year Halo Hirose, Buck-
eye star, and Weinberg have come
within one-tenth of a second of
this. In the 100-yard freestyle an-
other Wolverine, Gus Sharemet'
set the record of :52.1 in 1940, but
Smith, Hirose and Weinberg have
all turned in faster clockings.
Sixteen Meets
Scheduled For'
'M' Golf Team
A sixteen match schedule, in-
cluding a swing through Southern
campuses, has been announced for
the 1947 edition of the Wolverine
golf team.
The Southern trip will take place
during the coming spring vacation
and will include stops at five of the
outstanding schools in the South.
On April 7 the team will meet
Washington & Lee, while on the
next four days they'll engage Vir-
ginia Tech, the University of Vir-
ginia, Duke and North Carolina.
The regular schedule will start
on April 23 when the Spartans, of
Michigan State will meet the Wol-
verines on the University course.
Following that the linksmen jour-
ney to Columbus to meet Ohio
State on April 26 and on April 29
they will play Wayne on the home
course.
The Conference meet, in which
the Wolverines will defend the title
they annexed last year, will be held
at Lafayette, Indiana, home of the
Boilermakers of Purdue on May
30 and 31. The schedule follows:
April Team Place
7 Washington & Lee Away
8 Virginia Tech Away
9 'U' of Virginia Away
10 Duke Away
11 North Carolina Away
23 Michigan State Home
26 Ohio State Away

17 Purdue Away
21 University of Detroit Away
24 Ohio State Home
30-31-Western Conference at
Lafayette, Ind.

In the 220 and 440 freestyles the
great Jack Hill has turned in times
of 2:10.4 and 4:47.4 as opposed to
the marks more of 2:11.2 and 4:47
esablished by Keo Nakama in
1943.
In the backstroke Holiday will
attempt to lower his 1943 stand-
ard of 1:31.7 and Maine and Howie
Jenkin of Wisconsin have all
turned in performances this sea-
son that come close 'to this mark.
Tough Duel in Breaststroke
Sohl and Counsilman, who staged
a breathtaking duel in the re-
cent Buckeye-Wolverine meeting.
il have their sights trained on
the breaststroke record of 2:23.9
that Jack Kasley of Michigan
turned in at the 1936 meet. Both
men have churned the distance in
lower times and this mark is al-
most sure to fall.
In the relays, the Maize and
Blue natators recently set a world's
record in the 300-yard medley
and the trio of Holiday, Sohl and
Weinberg have consistently re-
corded times lower than the mark
of 2:56.7, which was established
in the 1943 meet by Holiday, Irv
Einbinder and Coxey of Michigan.
The former two men are on this
year's squad.
Buckeye Relay Quartet Favored
The Ohio State quartet of Sul-
livan, Zemer, Hirose and Smith
came through with a 3:31.3 clock-
ing in the recent dual meeting
with Michigan. .And since the rec-
ord stands at 3:32.4, the chances
are very good of another record
being smashed.
And if you're inclined to bet on
sure things there will definitely be
a record set in one event, as the
1500 meter swim will be intro-
duced to Western Conference cor-
petition and no matter who wins,
the books will have a new mark to
add to the collection.
Sig Phis Set
Scoring Mark
ChiP siS ig Chis Cop
Cage League Crowns
Sigma Phi, a hot and cold ag-
gregation all year, scalded Acacia
72-16 to ink a new record in the
Intramural basketball books.
Dale Van Lenpe steamed in 22
points, while the trio of Van
Lenpe, George Allen and Ben Pipp
accounted for a total of 56 mark-
ers.
Two league championships were
decided in the final games of the
campaign as Sigma Chi's second
half rally nipped Sigma Alpha Mu.
20-18, and Chi Psi defeated Theta
Delta Chi, 14-8. SAE upset league
leading Psi U, 17-11, to earn a tie
for first which will be played off
Saturday in addition to the ATO-
Sig Ep deadlock for the top spot
in their circuit. The fifth league
title will be officially determined
this Saturday also when the Al-
pha Delts, now at top of the lad-
der, plays a postponed tilt with the
Phi Delts.
The Sammy's compiled a big
first half lead of 16-8, but in the
last stanza they turned as cold as
ice with George Gordon dropping
in the lone basket during that
fourteen minute period. Mike Mi-
chael and Moe Hill then pumped in
eleven points for Sigma Chi and
the championship.

Michigan's first wave of track-
men leaves Ann Arbor at 1:30 p.m.
today, en route to Champaign, Ill.,
where the Western Conference In-
door Track Championships will
be held tomorrow and Saturday.
Pre-meet dope sheets tab Illi-
nois.-the defending champions,
and host as odds-on favorites to
cop the Big Nine team title in
what may be the largest meet in
Conference history, with a total
of 254 entries thus far.
Three-Way Struggle
A three-way struggle for the
runner-up spot is developing be-
tween the Wolverines, Ohio State
and Wisconsin, and 'if past per-
formances by the trio can be con-
sidered indicative of what is com-
ing, the outcome will be a close
one.
In the mile for instance, four
men have run 4:20 or faster this
season. Illini John Twomey leads
the field with a 4:17.1, and it is
reported that he turned in a 4:15
in a intra-squad meet this week.
Michigan's Herb Barten is next
with a 4:19.6 performance against
Michigan State two weeks ago.
Milers Are Standouts
Earl Mitchell of Indiana has
run 4:19.8 this season, and in pre-
vious years has been clocked as
low as 4:08.6. Don Gehrmann of
Wisconsin is close on their heels
with a 4:20.4 to his credit. Not to
be counted out is another Illini,
Bob Rehberg, who ran a 4:15.2
outdoors last year, and is round-
ing into shape quickly.
Records may fall like Ann Ar-
bor rain if the top-notch thinclads
run true to form. Eight- marks

could concievably be cracked, r
the quarter-mile, high hurt
mile relay, high jump, pole va
shot put, and broad jump mi
in the greatest danger.
Birdsall To Defend Title
Two Wolverines will be ou
defend their individual titles
the meet. Charley Birdsall,
team captain, is the two-mile
list, and Barten is the half-i
king. Chuck Fonville, the M.
and Blue "record-a-meet"
putter, has a fine chance to b
home an individual Big I
crown. Bob Fancett, outstan
freshman broad jumper, and
Queller, middle-distance star,
so will be among the leader;
