Scoring the las goa (J the
1946-47 hockey, seso 1 sconds,
before the final horm ton make
Michigan's only ta01y aais
Michigan Tech last Saltrday,
Gordon McMillan gained << tie
with wing Al Renfrew for the title
of high scorer of the team.
McMillan's last minute mark-
er gave him 14 goals to go with his
24 assists, which were tops for
the squad, for a total of 38 scor-
ing points. McMillan, veteran
}' center, just completed his second
season with the Maize and Blue
and was the high scorer of thie
k1945-46 aggregation.
Renfrew Leads in Goals
Renfrew, whose play was a
great determining factor in Mich-
igan's successful puck season, lead
t the team in goals with 19. He also
had a like number of assists to
match McMillan's total.
B ill Jacobson, who missed two
of the last three contests due to
an injury, ended in the third place
in scoring wtih 29 points on 17
markers and 12 assists.
t Ossie Phillips, freshman sensa-
tion, who was declared ineligible
and was unable to play in the last
six games, still scored .enough
points to place him in fourth p~o-
sition with 15 goals r n(I 4: 3s

Hill 'Bad Man'
Captain Connie Hill, whose
great defensive work prevented
many scores against the Maize and
Blue throughout the season,
proved his offensive ability alsA
by scoring two goals and assist-
ing on 1 2 other scores for 14
points. Hill was by far the bad
man" of team having spent 51
minutes in the penalty box.

dual meet of the season.
Harry Holiday, Bob Sohl and
Dick Weinberg set the current
world standard in the Northwest-
ern meet of a month ago as they
churned the twelve laps in 2:50.6.
breaking Yale's mark of 2:56.2.
Record Accepted
A world's record in this event
was not accepted until early this
year and shortly after the an-
nouncement of its acceptability
was made, Yale's trio went out and
set the record. However, a Michii-
gan trio of 1943, Holida(y, Pat
Hayes, and Johnny Patten had al-
ready turn~ed in a 2:50.8, which
was not recognized because it had
been recorded before the world's
record was established.
Now these three great swimmners
will attempt to lower the mark
even more when they dive into the
Wayne pool. Last week in the

A new field of amusement that
has escaped most of the students,
on campus is the "sports night
club" which opens its doors at the
Intramrural Building every Friday
night to the male students and
their feminine companions.
Audience 1Paxtiipation
orip'-illvl the facilities were re-
served only for the veterans and
their wives, hud.t this semester
through the backing of the Stu-l
:Lent Legislature's social commit-
tee everyone is invited to spend
Friday nights in the swimming
"blue room" or the "gym jam"
room. Audience participation is
the prerequisite for the success of
this social spot and there is room
for 400 couples provided they don't
swarm into the swimming room at
the same time.
All props are at the disposal of
the performers. A wide variety of
entertainment ranges from bad-
minton, volleyball, tennis, and
basketball upstairs in the "gym
jam" room to golf driving, squash,
and handball in the lower lounge.
And Billy Rose's Aquacade offers
no more splash than that found in
the swimming "blue room."
The gym activities get underway
at 7 p.m. and wind up at 10:30,
while the pool stars can glow from
7:30 to 9:30. Dressing rooms and
towels furnished for the women.
In charge of the nightclub is
Beeman Host
genial host, H. Frank Beeman.
Earl Riskey, director of Intra-
mural athletics, said that there is
every reason to believe that this
innovation can be expanded if
widespread interest is shown.
Eventually a Friday night coedu-
cational I-M program can be-
come. a permanent plan.
Virginia Councell, chairman of
the Social Committee, stated,
"This is the long needed oppor-
tunity for more variety on Friday
evenings for Michigan students."

Favorite of the white -l'ua red
scout is the University of Michi-
gan's own Dick Wakefield (Clas,,
of '48). Egan believes that Wake-
field has more potentialities than
any man in baseball today, in-
cluding Ted Williams and Stan
Wakefield could be one of the
all-time immortals, Egan thinks,
if he would combine the deter-
mination of Ty Cobb or Hank
Greenberg with his natural
ability as a ball player.
"The boy has the batting eye,
power, speed, and fine throwing
arm to be a great one," the scout
goes on. "No man has ever shown
more. But unlike Cobb and Green-
berg, Dick has up to now refused
to work on his weak points. He'll
practice his hiting by the hour,
but doesn't care to learn how to
bunt and play the percentatges
when he's up there at the plate."
Despite these shortcomings
which are time subject tof fre-
qjuent lectures by Egan to the
former Wolverine, Egan expects
him to have a far better year
than the dismal .268 batting
average he posted last season.
"The kid will have a great sea-
son," Egan confides, "anid so
