MSC Coach Cries
At Plight of Quintet

By CHUCK LEWIS
Vying for its second straight win
in as many starts, the Michigan
hockey team will leave for To-
ronto, Canada, this afternoon,
where they will meet the Univer-
sity of Toronto Blues tomorrow.
The Wolverines have been hav-
ing their hardest practices of the
season this week in preparation
for Coach Ace Bailey's squad
which has always been tough for
Michigan. The team's condition
is in general much better than it
was when it opened the campaign
by beating the Windsor Spitfires,
10-7. Backchecking, which Coach
Vic Heyhger hopes will stop the
usually strong offense of Toron-
to, has been stressed all week.
Renfrew Still Out
Al Renfrew, who played but one
period in the season's opener, is
still out with, a shoulder injury,
and probably will not be available
for the Blues' contest. He most
likely will see action again in the
tilt with the Marquette Hockey
Club here December 14.
Coach Heyliger will use the
same lines that played in the last
two periods against Windsor. The

number one line remains intact
with Gordon MacMillan at center
and Dick Starrak and Lyle Phil-
lips at the wings. Herb Upton,
converted from a defenseman to a
winger, will be moved up to the left
wing spot on the second line with
Ted Greer on the right side and
Bill Jacobson, producer of. three
goals in the Windsor encounter, at
the center slot.
Third Line Changed
George Peugeot will hold, his
center position on the number
three trio with Sam Steadman on
the right wing. George Anderson
will fill in at left wing as Upton
was moved up to the second line.
On defense, Heyliger will use
captain Connie Hill, Bob Marshall,
and George Balestri. Jack Mac-
Donald who let but two markers
through him in the initial two pe-
riods of the Spitfire game before
Michigan's def'ense let up, will
again be in the goal. MacDonald
has been working more to stay in
his nets during this week instead
of lunging for the puck when the
opposition is in close. Two Wind-
soi' markers scooted past the crease
because of this last Friday.

recognized by the AAU and NCAA
and also tops the recognized world
mark for the distance by almost
two seconds.
14 Event Program
Feature events on, the Swim
Gala program will be State AAU

morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Wat-
erman Gym.
Demonstrations on the high and
parallel bars, the buck, the side
and long horse, and the flying
rings will be presented by 12
skilled male tumblers and will in-
clude elementary, intermediate

visor in the department of physi-
cal education, has been rounding
this clinic into shape for the past
several weeks. Its purpose is to
present teaching techniques, and
introduce various pieces of gym
apparatus.

ELMER MADAR joined 28 other Wolverine football greats yesterday
as he became the first member of a Michigan squad to be named
as an All-American since 1943.
Last Wolverines to eafter football's Hall of Fame were Merv Pre-
gulman and Bill Daley, outstanding tackle and fullback on the 1943
squad which lost only to Notre Dame and tied Purdue for the Con-
ference championship.
Michigan's first All-American was the now-legendary Willie
Heston who was named by Walter Camp as halfback on the
teams of 1903 and 1904. Heston was one of the main sparkplugs in
the mighty Wolverine elevens of the turn of the century that
came to be known as the "point-a-minute" teams of Fielding H.
Yost.
Next to enter the Hall of Fame was the rugged and aggressive
center of Yost's 1907 team, Adolph "Germany" Schulz, who is re-
membered as one of the most outstanding linemen ever produced by
a Maize and Blue team.
Then in quick succession Msichigan placed Albert Benbrook on the
1909 team, and Stanfield Wells, the first end to gain recognition and
Benbrook again repeated on the 1910 eleven. James Craig followed in
1913 as he was chosen as a halfback on the mythical squad.
Little Johnny Maulbetsch kept Michigan men on the All-
Americans in 1914 as he became the third halfback to be honored.
And the fullbacks of the 1917 and 1918 teams were both Wolver-
ines as Cedric Smith and Frank Steketee added their names to
the ever-increasing list of Maize and Blue All-Americans. In 1917
also for the second time two Wolverines were named to the mythi-
cal team as Ernest Allmendinger joined Smith on that squad.
THEN came a three year lull, but in 1921 Michigan began an eight
year span during which they placed seven men on All-Americans.
First of these was Ernie Vick who was named as center on the 1921
team. He was followed by another great Michigan halfback Harry
Kipke, who later coached Michigan teams of the Thirties.
In 1923 it was Jack Blott, center on the Conference Champs of
that year and now line coach of. the Wolverines, and in 1924 E. R.
Slaughter became the third guard to be so honored.
Then came the famous Bennie to Benny combination, which
set the football world afire as Benny Oosterbaan became one of
the first men ever to be chosen three times on All-American teams.
He was named as end on the squads of 1925, '26, and '27 and was
joined on the 1926 squad by his passing companion Bennie Fried-
man. Otto Pomerening became the first tackle to be named as he
concluded this Michigan span of All-American selections in 1928.
Again during the 1930's the Maize and Blue was very well repre-
sented on the mythical teams of these years. In 1931 it was Maynard
Morrison, a center, and in 1932 it was Harry Newman, great quarter-
back of the Conference and National Champs. In 1933 two Wolverine
linemen earned distinction as Charles Bernard and Francis Wistert,
center and tackle of Michigan's last undisputed Conference Champs,
were named.
In 1938 Ralph Heikkinen put a Michigan man back on the
All-American list and then in 1939 and 1940 Tommy Harmon
added his name to the Maize and Blue All-Americans. In 1940
Harmon was joined by end Ed Frutig and in 1941 "Bullet Bob"
Westfall became the third Wolverine fullback to be chosen.
In 1942 Julius Franks and Al Wistert were chosen as guard and
tackle respectively to bring the Michigan total to 26. Pregulman and
Daley followed in 1943 and then Elmer Madar became the fourth of
the great "Seven Oak Posts" to become an All-American as he joined
Wistert, Franks, and Pregulman in the ever-growing Michigan foot-
ball Hall of Fame.

In Tank Finals
SAM Beat Phi Gams ;
Enter Handball Final
Sigma Phi, paced by the out-
standing performance of John
Brink, last night took the Fra-
ternity Swimming title as they
trounced the Sigma Chi merman,
40-21.
Brink took the 25 yard back-
stroke with the excellent time of
:13.7 and then teamed with
Schoendoob, Fergerson and Em-
ory to cop the 100 yard free style
relay in :45.1. To make things
decisive he led the medley relay
team to victory as the Sigma Phis
were never headed.
Outstanding in the victory were
Watson who took the 25 yard free
style in the excellent time of :25.5
and Mack who churned his way
to victory in the 25 yard breast-
stroke.
Also last night Sigma Alpha Mu
moved into the finals of the fra-
ternity handball championships
as they defeated Phi Gamma Del-
ta, two matches to one.
Zelony copped the number two
singles from Standiford in
straight games, 21-8, 21-9 after
Epstein had lost to Van Dyke of
the Phi Gains, 21-4, 21-15.
Tisch adn Meislin, doubles com-
bination, then took a three game
series from Ffth and Aver to
clinch the final berth by scores of
21-10, 15-21, and 21-16.

By DICK KRAUS
Coach Ben Van Alystine and his
Michigan State quintet, complete
with an ex-Wolverine scoring ace,
the most valuable cager in the
State last season, two 6 foot 6 inch
centers, a pair of veteran guards,
and a crying towel, will roll into
Yost Field House tomorrow to
raise the curtain on the 1946-47
basketball campaign.
Releases Minimize Talents
The Spartan coach, exhibiting
far less than Spartan reserve, has
tear drenched all the press re-
leases concerning his present ag-
gregation, minimizing the talents
of a squad which boasts such per-
sonnel as Bob Geahan, ex-Wol-
verine forward, and the second
highest scorer in the Big Ten in
the '44-45 season, and "most val-
uable" Robin Roberts.
To back up this veteran for-
ward pair, Van Alystine has Fred
Stone and Jack Wulf to man the
pivot position. Stone is a returning
regular who played in 1942 and
1943, while Wulf was a high
scoring prep star from Chicago's
Senn high school.
Guards Experienced
Pat Peppler and team cap-
tain Ollie White, a duo of ex-
perienced guards round out the
starting five.
According to Van Alystyne this

outfit despite its height, exper-
ience and scoring ability will lose
to Michigan's untested cagers by
at least 25 points.
Harrison only Letterman Starter
To cope with the experience of
the Spartan quintet Michigan
Coach Ozzie Cowles will probably
field a squad with only one of last
year's regulars. '
Boyd McCaslin and freshman
Mack Suprenowicz will probably
start at forwards, with Bill Ro-
berts or Marty Feinberg at center,
Bill Mikulich and Bob Harrison,
the lone returning regular, at the
guards.
Captain Pete Elliott should see
action but he has had less than
two weeks practice since the end
of the football season and has not
yet rounded into basketball shape.
Spartans Dim Out
As a part of State's pre-game
strategy Van Alystyne has had his
team working out under dimmed
lights "to get my players used to
playing under conditions they'll
meet on that shadowy Michigan
court."
Cowle's countering strategy has
been to install new 1500 watt
bulbs in Yost Field House.

Wiese Declines East-West Tilt Invitation

< .

Bob Wiese revealed yesterday
that he would not accept the in-
vitation to play in the East-West
game on New Year's Day, thus
leaving Elmer Madar as the only
Michigan representative in the
Shrine contest.
According to the big fullback,
if he played in the East-West
game he would lose his amateur
standing and would not be eligible
for another year of varsity base-
ball. Although Wiese would draw
no salary, he would be placed on
a professional basis by having his
expenses paid to and from San
Francisco plus receiving gifts from
the backers of the post-season
affair.
In winding up his collegiate
gridiron career this semester,
Wiese earned his seventh letter,
three in football, two in basket-
ball, and two in baseball. The
final one will comenext spring
when Wiese plans to return to
the Maize and Blue baseball scene
S
/ f f- lf

after a year's absence in the Pa-
cific.
When the '47 football season
rolls around, it is more than likely
that he will be playing in the near
vicinity because the Detroit Lions
have claimed him in the annual
pro draft.
An outfielder on the Wolverine
nine in '44, Wiese got off to a
feeble start at bat, but he later

found his eye by boosting his av-
erage seventy points and at the
end of the campaign compiled a
solid .364 average.
Because Michigan's new bas-
ketball coach is employing a sys-
tem whereby all the present fresh-
men are being primed for the
future, Wiese decided to drop all
thoughts of getting another year
in on the hardwood courts.
