Nine Michigan Swimmers

To Fight for NCAA


Stewart Aims at 1500
Meter Freestyle Crown
Evans, Canja Face Strong OSU Divers;
Finals in Five Events Slated for Tonight

Former Michigan hockey star
Neil Celley is piling up a maze of
skating records in Japan while
in the Army waiting his return to
the Wolverine campus.
Recently, Celley won the Japan-

Nine Wolverine swimmers will
attempt to regain a crown they
lost two years ago as they open
tIhe annual NCAA swimming
championships in Seattle, Wash-
ington, tonight.
The mermen, making the first
postwar flying trip of any Maize
and Blue squad, arrived in Seattle
yesterday and are scheduled to
follow the same slate of events as
in the Western Conference meet.
Stewart in 1500 Meter
This morning there'll be heats in
the 1500 meter freestyle with the
title going to the winner of the
fastest heat a n d runners-up
Judged by the times they recorded.
Wally Stewart, Wolverine distance,
man, who took second in the Con-
ference, is one entry while Coach
Matt Mann may also enter Gus
Stager, middle distance star in this
Also scheduled for the morning
round are preliminaries in the low
diving and here again it looks like
4 repetition of the Western Con-
ference meet with the Buckeye
quarter of Harlan, Anderson,
Strong and Calhoun favored along
with the Michigan pair, Gil Evans
andAlex Canja to reach the finals.
Weinberg Ready for 1"50"
Heats will be run in the after-
noon for the 50-yard freestyle,
440-yard freestyle, 150-yard back-
stroke and the 300-yard medley
relay. In the "50" Dick Weinberg
will try to make it two out of
three over Buckeye flash Halo
Hirose. .Also considered as serious
threats in this event are Ted Ho-
bert of Ohio State and Ed Heuber
of Yale.
In the "440" it looks like Ohio

State all the way. With stars like
Jack Hill, Jack Ryan, and Seymour
Schlanger the Bucks definitely
rate the nod. The Wolverine en-
tries will probably be Stager and
Stewart, who took third and fifth
in the Conference meet.
M' Favored in 2 Races
Coach Mann's charges are rated
fairly heavy favorites to take two
titles tonight as Harry Holiday is
the odds on choice to whip Alan
Stack of Yale for the backstroke
crown. Other threats to Holiday
are Dick Maine of Iowa and Bob
deGroot of the Ohio State.
The 300-yard medley relay trio
of Holiday, Bob Sohl and Wein-
berg hold the world's record for
this distance and no team has
come even close to challenging
that mark. Therefore they appear
"shoo-ins" in their specialty.
Other Wolverines making the
trip are Bill Crispin, short dis-
tance freestyler who will probably
swim in the 50 and 100-yard free-
styles and on the 400-yard relay
team and Bill Upthegrove, fresh-
man breaststroker, who will swim
in the 200-yard breaststroke and
on the 400-yard relay team to-
Canadiens Two Up
The Montreal Canadiens nosed
out the Boston Bruins 2-1 in
overtime tonight to take a 2-4
lead in their best-of-seven Na-
tional Hockey League cham-
pionship playoff series. Kenny
Mosdell hammered in the pay-
off counter at 5:38 of the "sud-
den death" overtime.

To See Action
Fordliani Poses 'est
In Chicago Relays
Michigan's 2-mile relay team
will put its undefeated record on
the block tomorrow night when
it faces quartets from Fordham,
Indiana and Notre Dame in the
annual Chicago Relays at Chi-
cago Stadium.
Coach Ken Doherty will count
on Charley Birdsall, Chuck Low,
George Vetter and Conference
half-mile king Herb Barten, to
keep the Wolverines' slate clean.
Michigan's Don Queller is still out
of action with a persistent cold.
Rams Threaten
Since the Wolverine foursome
has already taken the measure of
the Hoosiers and the Fighting
Irish this season, the once-beaten
Fordham baton-passers seem the
greatest threat to Michigan's two-
mile relay record.
Fordham's team of Jack O'Hare,
Frank Leary, Ed Carney and Jerry
Connally have made an impressive
showing this year, taking the two-
mile relay in all the eastern invi-
tational meets, including the Na-
ti-nal AAU Indoor title. They
were upset in the scramble for the
IC4-A two-mile relay crown when
NYU and Manhattan broke the
tape ahead of the Ram quartet.
Indoor Season Ends
Fordham's best clocking this
season has been 7:49 on Madison
Square Garden's eleven lap board
track, while the Wolverine four-
some has turned in a winning
time of 7:48.1 on the eight-lap dirt
oval in the University of Chicago
Field House.

Courtright, Dworsky Grapple
or Michigan in Season nals

Two Wolverine wrestlers, Bill
Courtright and Dan Dworsky, will
wind up Michigan's 1947 mat cam-
paign when they open in the NCAA
wrestling championship tourney
this afternoon at Illinois' Huff
gym, Champaign, Illinois.
Coach Cliff Keen, Wolverine mat
mentor and Big Nine representa-
tive on the NCAA Wrestling Rules
Committee, is not gunning for the
team championship but will be
out to see that his two bright
charges bring home the bacon in
155 and heavyweight divisions.
Courtright, defending Nation-
al 155-pound titlist, has wrestled
at 165 during the current cam-
paign but will drop down to 155
to defend his crown in the NCAA
meet. Courtright captured the
Conference crown three weeks
ago and has suffered just one'
defeat this season, at the hands
of Illinois' national champ Dave
Gales Mikles, 155-pound junior
$35.00 to $55.00
greys, browns - single- or
double - breasted - regulars,
shorts, or longs.
$7.50 - $10.00

Two Matmen Enter NCAA Meet


from Michigan State, is expected
to give Courtright a tough fight
for the title. Mikles placed third
in last year's tournament and was
National AAU champ at 145 in
1945. He won eight consecutive
matches this season and was the
only wrestler to defeat Michigan's
spectacular 155-pounder, Bob Bet-
zig, in dual competition.
Dworsky, recently crowned Big
Nine runner-up, stands as one
of the leading contenders for the
heavyweight championship.
Dwarsky's toughest opposition
is expected from the Gopher's
Vern Gagne, the rude gentleman
who stopped Dworsky in the fin-
al bout of the Conference meet.
Michigan's versatile heavyweight
has made a rapid rise to the high-

er wrestling circles during the
current campaign. Dworsky turn-
ed in a brilliant performance in
the recent Big Nine meet in down-
ing the two grapplers that had
defeated him earlier this season
in dual competition.
The leading contenders for the
team crown are Oklahoma A.&M.,
Cornell College, Iowa State Teach-
ers, and Illinois. The Aggies, de-
fending champs, have won the
NCAA title every year a team
champion has been declared but
may be surprised by the Fighting
Illini who will be sparked by four
grapplers of champion caliber.

feated Nu Sigma Nu, 34-27 last

ese All-Service Ice Derby at Lake
Yamanaka by taking the 100, 220,
400, 440, and half mile ice titles.
The former . Wolverine speedster
set the 100- and 220-yard Japan-
ese records, and he is being boost-
ed as an Olympic ice team candi-
date. In winning the titles, Celley
received five $125 watches for his
record-breaking efforts.
Celley played left wing on the
number one line of the champion-
ship 1945-46 puck squad, making
15 goals and 18 assists for 33 points
which was good for fifth place in
the team scoring. The other mem-
bers of the line that played with
him were center Wally Gacek, who,
played the latter part of the re-
cent season and clinched the my-
thical Big Nine championship
against Minnesota by garnering
two markers, and Wally Grant,
who is also in service.
In a recent letter to Coach Vic
Heyliger, Celley said that he hopes
to be back at Michigan for the
1949 hockey season,
