throws, Gensichen scored two
buckets and a free shot to make
it 20-17. By half-time the Broncos,
had caught Michigan and taken
a 36-33 lead.
Gensichen, Western's one-man
gang, scored 14 points in the first
half on five buckets and four
charity shots. He came back in
the second half to score 16 more
on five field goals and six free
throws.
Roberts Sinks 13 Points
Michigan's high scorer was Big
Bill Roberts, who was bottled up
under the basket and held to one
score from the field, but the Wol-
verine center made amends at
the free throw line where he scored
nine times.
Every one of Michigan's players
broke into the scoring column.
McCaslin - dropping in 11 points,
Harrison and Pete Elliott each
hitting for ten, and Mack Suprun-
owicz tallying eight before he left
the game on fouls.
The second half was even wilder
than the opening session as the
lead changed hands five times be-
fore Gensichen hit twice in a
row to put Western in the lead
for the last time, 52-51.
Suprunowicz Fouls Out
Western Michigan's supporting
cast performed brilliantly as Mel
Vandis, Fitzgerald and Lang cam(
through with beautiful baskets
when they were needed most'
Fitzgerald scored nine points and
each of his shots from the field
were spectacular scores.
The final minutes of the game
saw Michigan, playing without

Suprunowicz, stay in the ball
game because of the set shooting
of Harrison and Elliott. The vet-
eran Bronco quintet guarded
Michigan's forwards very closely
as they fought to protect a 59-53
lead, but Elliott hit with two set
shots and a free throw in quick
succession to make it a ball game
again.

foul shot. Roberts got that back
for Michigan but Boven made
another charity toss. Harrison
concluded Michigan's scoring from
the field as the Wolverines pulled
the score up to 63-61.
The Broncos then began a
quick passing game in an attempt
to freeze the ball. Bob Fitch,
Western forward, worked himself
clear under the basket and notched
the clinching score.
Crowd Goes Wild
Western Michigan's s c o r i n g
came mostly from around the key-
hole zone. Gensichen. a driving
ball player, made most of his tal-
lies from in close. When Michi-
gan stopped his shots he con-
verted from the free throw line.
A wild crowd, which lined up
outside the gym an hour and a
half before the game, kept the
place in an uproar throughout the
contest.
Even the rival coaches were
caught up in the excitement and
both Ozzie Cowles and Buck Read
had technical fouls called on them.

Improved Defense
Checks All But Kukuk
By HERB LORENZ
Michigan's hockey team out-
skated, outshot and outscored the
Marquette hockey club last night
to gain a 9-6 victory for their
second win of the season.
The game was sparked by some
fine offensive play by both squads.
George Balestri pulled the "Hat
Trick" by scoring three goals for
the Wolverines, but Bob Kukuk,
not to be outdone, came through
with three goals for his team. also.
Balestri opened the scoring in
the first period with a fine solo
dash that carried him from center
ice, around two surprised defense-
men, in to cage the disc. Norm
Kukuk tied the score with anorher
solo dash at halftime of the first
period.
Michigan Defense Strong
Michigan's defense looked much
stronger than it has to date, and
Herb Upton, a newcomer on de-
fense, teamed well with big Bob

night's game out of the fire. 1
The Maize and Blue sager got
hot in the second half as he
bucketed two field goals and a
free throw in quick succession.

Balestri Pulls Hat Trick To Pact

Marshall in slowing down the
fast-skating Marquette club. Both
Marshall and Balestri dealt out
some teriffic body checks which,
time and again, thrilled the near-
capacity crowd. The first canto
ended with the score tied at two
as both Balestri and Bob Kukuk
again scored.
The second period opened with
both teams keeping up a fast pace.
Michigan used their third line
very sparingly, cal:ng on the first
two lines a 1 m o s t completely
throughout the first two periods.
Although Michigan continued to
press the play, giving goaltender
Tom Maki many difficult tries,
he proved to be very tough by
making some excellent stops when
the Maize and Blue men were
swarming all around him.
Finally Balestri again broke
through to score his third goal of
the evening. Kukuk, however,
came back to count for the Sen-
tinals, shortly afterwards. Phil-
lip and. MacMillan counted two
quick goals to give the Wolverines
a 6-4 lead as they left the ice at
the close of the second period.
Third Period Rough
In the final period, the play
slowed down as the hard checking
began to tell on the forward lines
of both clubs. Hill was penalized
five m i n u t e s for unnecessary
roughness as he checked Jim
Humes into thenet. Humes was
injured on the play and was
forced to retire from the game
Greer opened the goal-getting
midway in the final period on a

Post Goes
To Munn
EAST LANSING, Mich., Dec.
14-(AP)-Clarence L. (Biggie)
Munn, for eight years line coach
at the University of Michigan, to-
day was lured from Syracuse Uni-
versity to accept the Michigan
State College football coaching
post relinquished last week by
Charley Bachman.
President John A. Hannah of
the college made the announce-
ment, declaring that Munn, who
coached Syracuse only one year
after leaving the Ann Arbor line
assignment, was "the only can-
didate Michigan State College
considered for the job."
Takes Evashevski
Two of Munn's assistants at
Syracuse'are expected to accom-
pany him here, includingsForest
Evashevski, former University of
Michigan quarterback who gained
fame from 1938 through 1940 as
a blocker for Tom Harmon, Eva-
shevski was Munn's backfield
coach at Syracuse.
Munn said he would announce
Monday whether he would also
bring LaVerne (Kip) Taylor, for-
mer Ann Arbor High school men-
tor who was his Syracuse end
coach, or line coach Hugh Daugh-
erty.
Big Nine Hopes Grow
Michigan State, putting its grid
future in Munn's hands, thus con-
solidated its coaching assignment
with its long-time campaign to
gain admittance to the Western
Conference.
Speedy settlement of the Uni-
versity of Michigan's football
schedule controversy with Michi-
gan State over a date and location
of their 1947 meeting appeared
likely following the appointment
of Munn. "We will be out there
to give the Wolverines a battle if
the game is scheduled," Munn
said.

By CLARK BAKER
Wolverine swimmer Harry Holi-
day smashed an eight-year old
tank record as Michigan natators
swept to triumphs in all seven
State AAU races in last night's
12th annual Swim Gala at the
Sports Building pool.
Churning to an easy win in
the 150-yard individual medley
event, Holiday knocked nearly
two full seconds off the old na-
tional mark of 1:34.7 set in
1938 by another Wolverine, Tom
Haynie. Holiday's record-break-
ing time was 1:32.8.- Wolverine
Charley Moss trailed Holiday.
A share of the evening's hon-
ors went to breast stroker Bob
Sohl whose sparkling victory In
the State AAU 100-yard breast
stroke event cracked a four-year
old Michigan pool mark. Sohl's
winning time was 1:01.8, just
three-tenths of a second better

the Residence Halls athletes to-
morrow night when Lloyd and
Greene Houses meet in the finals
of the handball tournament,
while Prescott House battles the
winner 'of the Winchell-Greene
House volleyball game in the
Sports Building.
Capturing the crown in their
respective leagues, Winchell
will meet Greene House at 7:30
while Prescott, who drew a bye,
engages the winner in the night-
cap of the volleyball double-
header at 8:30 to determine
the dormitory volleyball ruler.
Prescott, headed by Don Dutch-
er, boasts a season's record of 20
victories and 4 losses. With Al
Neef leading the parade, the
Greene House contingent com-
piled a 17-7 total.

Hayes and Bill Upthegrove fin-
ished behind Sohl.
Holiday was the highscorer for
the evening. In addition to his
record-busting feat, the big Maize
and Blue ace sped through the
water to a win over teammate
Art Johnson in the 100-yard
backstroke event and then teamed
up with Moss, Bill Kogen and Dick
Weinberg to carry the Michigan
"A" team to victory in the final
event on the program, the 200-
yard freestyle relay.
Gil Evans put on a brilliant
exhibition -of diving to capture
the high board honors from
teammates Alex Canja and
Tommy O'Neill, who wound up
second and third respectively.
Evans, in top form, won going
away. His final pair of dives
were both rated a "10" by one
judge and nine by the, other
four.
Weinberg picked up an AAU
crown in the only freestyle sprint
of the evening, a 50-,yard dash
event. The Wolverine sophomore
was hard pressed by Moss but
came on to touch out his lanky
teammate. Kogen wound up a
close third for Matt Mann's team.

approving 1 9 4 7 intercollegiate
competition for 150-pounders.
The bantams will play under
same conditions as the varsiey
with the likelihood that six or
eight schools may start 150-pound

DOWN THE STRETCH:
Time Trials Prep Tlinclads
For Intra-S quad Tilt Tuesday

"Only three more weeks of prac-
tice before the first meet."
That's what Coach Ken Doher-
ty is drumming into the heads of
his trackmen in their afternoon
work sessions at Yost Field House
as the final pre-Christmas prac-
tices get under way tomorrow.
Michigan's initial indoor meet
is not until Feb. 1, but here's the
way Doherty figures it: between
now and February almost four
weeks are completely lost, sixteen
days of Christmasvacation and
eleven days of finals. As a conse-
quence, the thinclads have but
three full weeks in which to run
their legs into racing trim before
launching the season.
Hard Work To Come
"This means a lot of hard work
is in store for us," Doherty de-
clares. And the first fruits of this
hard work will be evidenced this
coming Tuesday evening, when
the annual December intra-squad
track meet will be held.
Twelve events are on the card,
beginning with the mile run at
7:30 p.m. This is followed by the
60-yard dash pre-lims at 7:40, the
440 at 7:55, and the "60" finals at
8:10. At 3:20 the 65-yard high
hurdles will be run, at 8:35 the
two-mile, at 8:50 the 880, at 9:05
the "65" low hurdles, and at 9:15
the mile relay. The high jump,
broad jump, shot put, and pole
vault will be conducted together
throughout the program.
The cinder men held time trials
yesterday afternoon in prepara-
tion for the meet. Coach Doherty
had praise especially for half-
milers Don Queller, Herb Barten,
and Joe Hayden, who ran under

two minutes. Justin Williams and
Rog Kessler chalked up creditable
times in the 1%/ -mile run. and
Dean Voegtlen, Bob Edmondson,
and Reginald Ernst looked good in
the %-mile.
Good Times in 440
Dick Forrestel, George Shep-
herd, and Chuck Low blazed
through some good quarter-miles
in the low 52's, while Bill Osgood
showed fine form in the highs and
Leroy Daggs flashed over the low
sticks in treat fashion.
In the field events Chuck Fon-
ville again bettered fifty feet in
the shot put, followed by Pete
Dendrinos who is rapidly round-
ing into 50-foot class. Four pole-
vaulters, Chuck Lauritsen, Max
Kelly, Gene Moody, and Hack
Coplin, all cleard 12,feet.
