Based on Tallies -
It will be given on the basis of
the number of points earned in
the various activities in which the
candidate participates. Thus, ver-
satility and ability sound the key-
note on the Intramural scale, be-
cause more points are made with
each additional advancement in
any tournament, whether it be
singles or team competition.
Since this recognition is for "the
best" all-around athlete, both fra-
ternity and independent men are
eligible to walk of f with "the mug."
There are thirty-six sports on the
yearly program in which to gain
tallies, so fourteen events are con-
sidered the average number for all

In the case of varsity men, they
are not allowed toeengage in I-M

they are out for are in session. Al-

Injury Riddled
Hockey Squad
Leaves Today
Key Men Absent for
Crucial Gopher Tilts
An injury-plagued Michigan
hockey team skated through its
last practice today in preparation
for the weekend tilts against the
Minnesota Gophers at Minnea-
Although the squad entrains
for Gopher town this afternoon,
Coach Vic Heyliger is not yet
certain who will make the trip
for the Wolverines. Ozzie Phil-
lips definitely will not go, as he
has been ruled ineligible by the
scholastic board, but here { Hey-
liger's dilemma begins.
Goaltender Jack MacDonald is
in the University hospital with an
infection, and may not be able to
make the journey..If he is side-
lined, Witold Malinowsky will be
in the nets for the Wolverines.
Added to this, Michigan's rear
guard suffered a double dose of
the injury woes. Both Connie
Hill and George Balestri suf-
fered painful injuries in prac-
tice, and will be available for
limited service only.
The probable loss of forward Al
Renfrew fpr the Gopher series puts
the finishing touches on Heyli-
ger's problem. Renfrew returned
to his home in Toronto because of
an illness in his family.
In spite of the many bad
breaks the squad has suffered,
one bright feature of the Minne-
sota games will be the return of
center Wally Gacek to the first
line. In the two non-conference
games th' Gacek has played,
he has tallied five goals and two
assists to lead the Wolverines in
After the Minnesota games, the
team will return to face the Wa-
terloo hockey club February 22 at
the Coliseum.

Cage Pieture Sees Changes

Quintet's Title
Hopes Dimmed
For those die-hards among
Michigan's cage clientele who want
to know what-if-any chance the
Wolverines have of still copping
their first Big Nine chown in 20
years, The Daily offers the numer-
ous and sundry possibilities yet in-
"I figure a record of nine wins
and three losses will win the title
this year," says Coach Ozzie
Cowles of the Maize and Blue. Go-
ing on this assumption, the pic-
ture of the teams with three or less
defeats looks something like this:
WISCONSIN ... Figured all but
a shoo-in by most corners. Have
only four remaining games with
tail end clubs. BUT, three of them
are away (Northwestern, Purdue
and Minnesota) and this trio has
a combined record of 8-2 in their
own backyards.
INDIANA . . . The Hoosiers
would be a good bet but for a pair
of games with the Whiz Kids. Fig-
uring on a split with the boys from
Champaign, Branch McCracken's
outfit could very conceivably fin-
ish with a 9-3 since their oter
three games are with the bottom
three members of the league.
ILLINOIS ... Three defeats al-
ready plus a pair of tilts with In-
diana looks like too big a load,
even for "The Kids."
MICHIGAN . . . Missed the
boat Monday night and would
have to win all remaining games
from Iowa, Purdue and. Ohio State
away, and Illinois and Minnesota
here. Oh well, wait till next year!
I' Rifle Team
Opposes Pitt
The firing of official matches
will begin next Tuesday, Feb. 18,
when the "U" Rifle Team leads off
with a postal match against Pitts-
burgh University. The firing will
begin at 7 p.m. on the ROTC
range, and spectators are welcome.
Following this, the first of four
consecutive matches with Western
Conference teams will be fired at
1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22. Iowa,
Illinois, Chicago and Ohio State
comprise this quartet, and all
threaten to be formidable oppon-
ents. Dates for the remaining
three, and various other challenge
matches, will be scheduled ad
posted at a later date.
Under the club's organization
for this remeter, regular meet-
ings will continuc on Tucsday
nights, with practice sessions on
Wednesday mornings from. 8:30
to 11:30.
Experienced small-bore marks-
men wishing to compete for posi-
tions on the team are invited to

Coaching is now in the hands
of Lt.-Col. Ferguson, of the AAF,
having recently replaced Major
Morse, who acted as range officer
last term.
All sophomores and second
semester freshmen interested
in trying out for track mana-
ger positions should report to
either Don Canham or Bud Low
any afternoon this week or next
at Yost Field House.
Michigan last won a Western
Conference basketball title in 1929
when it tied Wisconsin with a
10-2 record. Ernie McCoy now As-
sistant cage coach here, starred on
that team and was chosen an All-
Conference guard.

Mack Suprunowicz, Michigan's
sensational freshman forward,
edged up on the leaders of the Big
Nine scoring race by pumping in
25 points over the weekend to run
his conference total to 85 for a
12.1 average.
Despite being held to eight
points by Wolverine Pete Elliott in
Monday night's game, Bob Cook of
Wisconsin took over the league
leadership from Minnesota's giant
center Jim McIntyre with 122
points. McIntyre holds the sea-
son's record for one game with 30
in the Northwestern shindig, but
now trails Cook by four markers.
Murray Wier, Iowa's diminitive
goal-getter is currently running
third with 105, Ralph Hamilton of
Indiana is fourth with 97 and Pur-
due's Paul Hoffman next with 91.
Ed Kernan of Minnesota (82), Ben
Schadler of Northwestern (80),
Jack Underman of Ohio State (76)
and Glen Selbo of Wisconsin (74)
round out the first ten.


With H. O. (Fritz) Crisler's res-
ignation as Michigan athletic di-
rector and head coach appearing
imminent, rumors about his sc-
cessor at the Wolverine post flood-
ed the nation's press wires.
An Associated Press story from
East Lansing last night reported
Michigan State athletic director
Ralph IL. Young as having "no
comment" on the rumor that
State's new football mentor,
Clarence L. (Biggie) Munn
would replace Crisler at Michi-
"I don't think we should even
talk about that matter here,"
Young declared. "In the first
place, I don't know whether
Crisler is going to resign and in
the second place, I don't know
whether Munn would be con-
sidered for the job."
From Annapolis, Md., t e Uni-
ted Press queried Navy's 'football
coach, Lieut.-Comdr. Tom Hamil-
ton, on the possibility that he
might be named to succeed Cris-
ler at Michigan. Hamilton was re-
ported by the United Press as hav-
ing no comment. Michigan offi-
cials were reportedly "mystified
by the report."
WWJ sportscaster Ty Tyson
hinted on his broadcast last
night that Crisler would resign
from Michigan and suggested
that Earl (Red) Blaik of Army
might be considered as another
possibility to succeed the Maize
and Blue head mentor.
Michigan has won the Big Ten
cage crown only once (1927) but
has tied for the title on three other
occasions ('21, '26 and '29).
