13 Gridders
Greet Cowles
Still smelling the scent of lost
roses, thirteen grid stars hung up
their football shoes and donned
their basietball togs to report to
cage coach Ozzie Cowles this
week.
Heading the list were former let-
termen Pete Elliot, Dick Rifenburg
and Jack Weisenberger. Elliot was
a regular on last year's high scor-
ing squad and netted 100 points
in Confereace play.
This swelled the number of let-
termen back to eight. Bob'Harri-
son, Gordon Rosencrans, Chuck
Ketterer, Marty Feinberg and
Bob Baker have been working out
since Octrher 15.
Best of the newcomers from the
football team appears to be 6'4"
Irv Wisniewski. With the center
spot still wide open, the lanky
Jayvee end figures to make a
strong bid. Other gridders out in-
clude Bob Mann, Howard Yerges,
Fenwick Crane, Joe Soboleski, Don
Hershberger, George Royce, Chuck
.Lentz and Johnny Ghindia.

In Cogar Attack

Troubled all season by teams us-
ing the '-formation, Michigan
State College Saturday will meet
double trouble when Washington
State invades Macklin Stadium to
wind up the seasons for both
teams.
The Cougars employ what they
call a "double-T" formation, and
from the way the M.S.C. reserves
have been gaining on the varsity
with the fjrrnation this week, state
may have its hands full Saturday.

CAPTAIN CANJA:
Diver Named Swim Captain
Coach Matt Mann Reveals

By CLARK BAKER
Alex Canja, senior in the Lit
School, will captain Michigan's
1946-47 swimming team, it was
announced yesterday by tank
coach Matt Mann.
Canja, one of Mann's top divers

Canja had to play second-fiddle
td Strother 'T-Bone" Martin in
'41-42 but still managed to place
fifth in the Conference meet that
season. In 1942-43 Canja took
over as Mann's No. 1 diver before
leaving Michigan to serve a hitch
in the Army.
In '42-43 Canja helped the Wol-
verine team to second place in the
Conference with a fifth in the Big
Ten meet. He went on to dupli-
cate that performance in the
NCAA meet and then capped the
year by taking a second in the Na-
tional Junior Indoor Three-Meter
diving championship meet at
Cleveland.
Then there was an interlude of
three years during which Canja
served in ,he Army and saw ac-
tion in the European Theater. Re-
turning last fall, Canja immedi-
ately became Mann's top diver.
Alex was squeezed out of third
spot in the Conference by team-
mate Gil Evans but came back
strong to take a third in the
NCAA low board and a fourth in
the NCAA high board diving.
Final Standings

Chapputis Star
Of Big Nine
CHICAGO, Ill., Nov. 27-
Bob Chappuis of Michigan,
who beat his way to safety
through enemy territory after
the Army bomber in which he
operated as a radio man was
knocked down in combat, beat
his way through the enemy on
1946 gridi'rons to emerge as
the outstanding individual per-
former in Western Conference
football for the seeason.
Chappuis set a new statisti-
cal record for overall offense
with a total of 1039 yards, an
average of 148.1 yards in sev-
en games. The Wolverine ace,
who was noted as a passer
when he last played in 1942,
netted 443 yards by rushing
for the top figure in the Con-
ference, averaging 5.3 yards a
try. His passes were good for
596 yards as he hit on 36 of 64
attempts for a completion av-
erage of .563, which also stands
as a new Conference record.
And to clinch his claims he
ranked fifth in punt returns
with an average of 12.1 yards
and twelfth in kickoff returns
with an average of 21.5 yards.
While Chappuis was running
up his rushing net Art Dufel-
meier ofiIllinois capped a
championship season by taking
over top spot with the best av-
erage gain per rush., 8.0 yards
on 38 attempts for a net of 302
yards. Vic Schwall of North-
western netted 385 yards in six
games and had an average of
5.9 yards.
John Galvin of Purdue had
the best punt average, 43.0
yards on 16 kicks, followed 4y

Heyliger Says
Game Helped'

Wing
Team

By CHUCK LEWIS
After losing an exhibition game
to the Detroit Red Wings Tues-
day night, 6-5, the Michigan

hockey team will meet the Winds-
or Spitfires to open their regular
season- Friday night at 8 p.m. at
the Coliseum.
Coach Vic Heyliger felt that the
game with the professional De-
troiters was just what the squad
needed to get started.
The Red Wing tilt showed
that the sextet was out of con-
dition, but this will be made up
after a few more practice ses-
sions.
Particularly impressive in Tues-
lay's contest was goalie Jack
McDonald. MacDonald tenaeci the
Detroit nets in an exchange of
goalies and held his teammates,
plus a Red Wing forward line
that was loaned to the Wolverines,
scoreless for two periods.
The Windsor contingent in-
vades the Maize and Blue hock-
ey rink leading the Michigan-On-
tario Amateur hockey League.
They are managed by Ebbie Good-
fellow, former Detroit defense-
man

Included on the Spitfires ros-
ter are Harry Marchand and
Gordon Atles, who are tied for
the M-O loop scoring lead.
Michigan will use the same
pucksters that faced Detroit. On
the number one line will be Gor-
don MacMillan, Dick Starrak,
and Lyle Phillips. The second trio
will be Bill Jacobson, Al Ren-
frew, who made three points in
Wing engagement, and Ted Greer.
George Peugot, Sam Steadman,
and Herb Upton will make up the
third line.
On defense will be Connie Hill,
Bob Marshall, George Balestri,
and George Anderson. MacDon-
aId will be in the goal.
This will be -the last time that
the Maize and Blue hockey fans
will see the sextet at home until
December 14 when the Mar-
quette Hockey Club invades the
Coliseum.
Hold Your Bonds!

MERMEN COACH-7Ecognized
as one of the foremost swim-
ming experts in the country is
Matt Mann, Wolverine swim-
ming coach, who yesterday an-
nounced the choice of Alex
Canja as Michigan captain.
last year, will be starting his
fourth year of competition for the
Wolverine mnermen. It was back in
1941-42 that the Maize and. Blue
