IT WAS d strong Spartan tears
that Matt Mann's boys whip
ped last Friday night and the:
accomplished the feat in a man,
ner that bodes ill for their future
Big Nine opponents. The time
were fast, especially for this earl
in the season.
Bob Sohl served notice to the
nation that he will be a big
factor in the Conference and.
NCAA championships in March.
In splashing to an impressive
win over State's former nation-
al AAU breast stroke king, Dave
Siebold, Sohl turned in the best
showing of his career.
The Wolverine sophomore's win-
ning time of 2:24.8 was nearly
two seconds under Charles Keat-
ing's 1946 NCAA titlist time of
2:26.2 and almost three ful sec-
onds lower than Jim Counsilman'
1946 winning time of 2:27.6 in
the Big Nine meet.
And Ohio State's Halo Hir-
ose will get some hot competi-
tion from Wolverine Dick Wein-
berg. Hirose won the Confer-
ence 100-yard freestyle last
year in :52.3. Weinberg's time
against State was only a tenth
of a second off that pace. The
Michigan sprinter should also
be a big factor in the 50-yard
EIL VANS and CaIA. Alex Can-
ja showed a sample of high
board diving skill which may un-
seat Ohio state's all-winning Mil-
ler Anderson for the Conference
and National titles. Evans did
not score below a "seven" on any
of his eight dives against Michi-
gan State while Canja slipped
below that mark only twice during
the evening.

Both Wolverine relay teams
stamped themselves as the
teams to beat in the nation this
quartet easily bested the times
year. The 400-yard freestyle
posted by Ohio State's No. 1
ranked foursome of 1946. And
the Maize and Blue 300-yard
medley trio coasted to a 2:59.6
clocking, fast time for this early
in the season.
AS HAD been expected the
Michigan weakness showed up
in the 220 and 440-yard freestyle
distance events where Michigan
State took firsts and seconds in
both races. Ohio State is except-
ionally strong here and any Wol-
verine hope of regaining the Con-
ference and NCAA crowns may
depend on improved showings by
Bill Kogen, Wally Stewart, Jay
Sanford and Gus Steger.
Harry Holiday won his 150-
yard backstroke event easily as
expected. The big Maize and
Blue national record-holder was
not pushed so his time of 1:39.4
was well off his NCAA mark of
1:31.5 for the distance. Holi-
day's versatility was shown
when he doubled in the 400-
yard freestyle relay event and
posted a :52.2 for his 100-yard
Kogen and Charley Moss also
performed well for Mann's squad.
Kogen paced the freestyle relay
quartet with a fast :52, clocking
and just missed a third place in
the 220-yard event. Moss finished
third in the 100-yard freestyle
dash, anchored the 300-yard med-
ley relay team with a :53. time
and led off the Wolverines' free-
style irelay quartet.

Notre Dame
In 74-56 Win
Over Spartans
EAST LANSING, Jan. 14-(1P)-
A red-hot Notre Dame five, paced
by John Brennan and John Kelly,
overpowered Michigan State here
tonight, 74 to 56, to bounce back
from their defeat at the hands
of Purdue last Saturday.
The MSC five staged a last
ditch rally, pouring in 18 points
in seven minutes, in a futile effort
to close the gap.
Lanky Brennan, Notre Dame
center, led the Irish assault with
15 points, while his teammate,
Kelly, contributed 14. Guard Ollie
White paced the losers with 11.
The Spartans stayed in the
game for the first five minutes, but
Notre Dame, leading 12-10, went
on a scoring spree and piled up
a 21-10 advantage. With five min-
utes to go in the first half, the
Irish had doubled the count, 34-17,
and held a 41-23 advantage at the
Notre Dame's 74 point total was
the highest score ever rung up on
a MSC quintet, surpassing Ohio
State's mark of 67.

Bill Hewitt was an unforget-
table football player.
One of the truly great defen-
sive ends of all time, Hewitt dis-
tinguished himself at Michigan
in the early Thirties as a man
who could fill any position on the
Matt Mann, Michigan swim-'
ming coach, recalls Hewitt as
"one of the greatest men who
ever got on a gridiron. He was
rough and tough. I remember
he never used a helmet. They
always tried to make him wear
one, but he'd throw it away as
soon as he could." This strange
antipathy to head protection
later became Hewitt's trade-
mark on the professional grid-
From his Bay City high school
days on, Hewitt followed a foot-
ball career. He jumped into a
regular berth in his first season
of varsity eligibility at Michigan
and showed brilliantly. After be-
ing out of action the entire 1930
season with an injury, he returned
the following year to blossom in-
to Michigan's most versatile play-
To take advantage of his flaw-
less defensive play, Mr. Yost con-
verted him to fullback because
"he's wasting his time at end. Put
him at fullback where he can
float around and make tackles
all over the field." Hewitt spent
most of the season at full, but
when the All-Conference selec-
tions were announced he was pick-
ed at end.
Ernie McCoy, assistant Ath-
letic Director, remembered see-
ing Hewitt in scrimmage ses-

sions. "Iiwas a senior when
Bill was only a freshman," Mc-
Coy said, "When he played pro
ball he made up for his com-
parative lack of size. He was
smart, unorthodox, and a tre-
mendous starter."
Hewitt's uncanny ability to start
a split second after the center
snapped the ball was another of
his trademarks. A lot of people
always thought he was offside
on most plays.
Bennie Oosterbaan, who was
one of Hewitt's coaches, recalls
him as: "The best player up
here in both his junior and sen-
ior years. He looked like a foot-
ball player and he was a foot-
ball player. He should have
been an All-American. He had
a great physique, and great
Hewitt was essentially a de-
fensive giant and yet he was so
spectacular that many still rate
him on All-Time elevens. In 1944,
sportswriter Grantland ?ice and
football coaches Steve Owen, of
the pro football New York Giants,
and Frank Thomas, of Alabama,
rated him as one of the 12 great-
est players they had ever seen in
Broncos Defeat Hope
For Tenth Cage Win
KALAMAZOO, Jan. 14 -.(P) -
Western Michigan's high-stepping
Broncos marched to their tenth
basketball victory in 12 starts to-
night with an 84-64 triumph over
Hope College, MIAA leader.

Coaches Recall Bill Hewitt
As Great Performer

Michigan's sleepless basketball team, not too fresh from their
six a.m. return from Evanston, ran through a short practice session
yesterday in preparation for Saturday's pre-examination tussle with
Purdue in which Coach Ozzie Cowles ran the squad through some
fast break drills and then had the boys sharpening up on free throws,
The session featured the return to action of Gerritt Wierda,
second string forward who has been out since the first North-
<") western game, with a sprained

A great player.
