Hill Re-Elected Hockey
Captain for Third Year

_ _ _

E r

Diminutive Connie Hill was re-
elected captain of the University
of Michigan hockey team for the
1947-48 season yesterday, becom-
ing the first player in Wolverine
history to be honored with the
captaincy of an athletic team for
three years.
Only five ft. five in. tall, Hill
is one of the outstanding defense-
men ever to play for the Michi-
gan squad. His teammates gave
a verbal agreement to this yes-
terday when they also chose him
as the most valuable player on
the team for the second consecu-
tive year.
Scored 14 Points
During the past season Hill
scored two goals and made 12
assists for a total of 14 points.
lie spent 51 minutes in the penalty
box, earning the title of Michi-
gan's number one "Bad Man".
Connie hails from Copper Cliff,
Ontario, and has spent most of
the spare time of his 25 years on
the hockey rink.rHe is pursuing
his scholastic career in the Col-
lege of Architecture.
Glasses Help
Hill is one of the few hockey
players in college circles who
wears glasses while he plays.
While this may give him some ex-
tra sympathy from the audience
at the beginning of the game, the
feeling usually dissapates quite
rapidly once the contest is under
way. His uncanny, ability to di-
agnose potential scoring plays has

I-M Building
To Hold 16th
open House
The 16th Intramural Open
House will be held at the Sports
Building, Wednesday, March 26
with a marathon of winter ath-
letic events on the I-M program
running from 7:00-10:00 p.m.
As in the past, the purpose of
the Open House is to acquaint
all the students on campus with
the wide range of Intramural
activities that have been tak-
ing place during the past few
months and to promote more
interest in future events. In 1928
The Sports Building was erected
expressly for the use of all the
students by Fielding H. Yost,
who firmly believed in "ath-
letics for all."
The University of Michigan is
the only Big Nine school that can
boast a separate location to carry
on a yearly intramural schedule
without the interference of var-
sity teams' practice sessions or
PEM classes.
Plans have been worked out
by Earl Riskeybdirector of I-M
activities, to utilize all available
space in the big gym, swimming
pool, and individual rooms
downstairs so that different
events will be going on simu-
ltaneously. Bleachers will e put
up around three sides of the box-
ing ring and chairs will be fur-
nished for the other sports.
Another purpose of the Open
House is to provide spectator ap-
peal by holding the champion-
ship rounds of several tourna-
ments at that time. Included in
this category are basketball,
swimming, tennis, paddleball
handball, and water polo. In ad-
dition, exhibitions will be given in
gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling,
boxing, fencing, squash and code-
In two one-sided contests Allen-
Rumsey defeated Fletcher, 33-5,
and Greene House rolled over the
Chicago House quintet, 47-14, last
night to take the dormitory league
titles, and shove the two winners
into the final Open House cham-
pionship .

Barten's '830' Fast
On Two-Mile Relay
In capturing one first, a second
and two thirds at the Illinois
Tech Relays last Saturday in Chi-
cago, the individuals making up
Michigan's four quartets turned
in some exceptional performances.
Fast flying Herb Barten head-
ed the list with a blazing half
mile that even outshadowed his
record-tying effort at the confer-
ence races a week ago. It came in
the anchor of the two-mile relay
when Barten finished ten feet
ahead of Illinois' vaunted Bob
Rehberg. Three official watches
clocked his '880' in 1:52.9, one full
second beneath the conference
Low Improves
Chuck Low, the miler who ran
4:20.4 in the Big Nine meet but
didn't place, continued his rap-
idly improving pace. In the same
two-mile relay that saw Barten's
brilliant half, he ran the third leg
and put Michigan in the lead by
sweeping past Illinois' Dave Be-
delleand recording the best '880'
time of his career, 1:57.4.
In the distance medley he again
put the Wolverines in the place
in which they crossed the tape. He
took the baton in sixth place, but
when he completed his three-
quarters he had moved into third
position just behind Tom Deal of
Indiana and Bill Tully of Notre
Birdsall Outstanding
Captain Charley Birdsall also
came through with an outstand-
ing competitive showing. In the
afternoon he anchored the dis-
tance medley with a good 4:25.2
mile which saw him only three
yards out of first place on the
heels of Earl Mitchell of Indiana
and Bill Leonard of Notre Dame.
That evening the Wolverine two-
miler deserted his usual distance
and ran two half-miles. In the
two-mile relay he took charge of
the opening leg and ran it in
1:59.1, and a little later the
Michigan captain entered the open

'440' run in the event.
Another quarter-miler, George
Shepherd, ran three 440's in spite'
of a weak leg that has bothered
him since he injured it severall
weeks ago. In the distance med-

State Intermediate Tourna-

showed their ability to match
foils with any team, as three
of the four entrants reached
the finals.
Due to the large turnout, the
fencers were divided into three
divisions with the top three in
each bracket going to the fin-
als. Harry Isbenjian, Johnny
Dreher and Ray Chambers
were the Michigan men to
reach this final round. In the
run-offs all were eliminated
with Dreher managing to stay
in the running long enough to
take third place.
