Basketball fans will be intro-

ervisor in physical education, put

The second of a tour of Michi-

sists of trampoline stunts, tumb-
ling, and a work out on the high

First Test

Wolverine Hopes Dampened
As Balestrn Suffers Injury

Indoor Track Season Opens with Annual
Meet at Yost Field House on February 1

Track will hold the spotlight
at Yost Field House February 1,
when the Michigan AAU meet will
provide the first competition of
the 1947 season for the Wolver-
ine thinclads.
With the entries for the meet
still coming in, over 200 track-
men are expected to churn up the
cinders. Full squads will come
from Ohio State, Michigan State,
University of Detroit, Baldwin-
Wallace and many other mid-
western schools. In addition to
the collegiate athletes, high school
and club trackmen will don their
Full Program on Tap
A full intercollegiate program
of events is on tap for the even-
ing with four invitational races
for high school athletes, and two
AAU events, a 56-lb. weight throw
and a mile walk also scheduled.
National Collegiate and AAU
title-holders will be on hand to
answer the starter's gun. Harri-
son Dillard, Baldwin-Wallace's
NCAA and NAAU king may enter
the high and low hurdles while
Bill Clifford of Ohio State, last

year's indoor mile champion, will
match strides in the mile with
Quentin Brelsford of Ohio Wes-
leyan, who holds the NCAA cross-
country title.
Wolverine Entries Uncertain
Michigan's entries in the mid-
dle distance events depend on
whether Coach Ken Doherty sends
a 2-mile relay team to the Mill-
rose Games in New York, which
are held the same evening. With
Hugh Short, Dick Forrestel and
George Shepherd on hand Michi-
gan's chances to dominate the
quarter-mile are good.
In past years the Michigan AAU
meet has been one of the high-
lights of the Wolverine indoor
season and the stiff competition
offered by this year's list of en-
tries will furnish a measure of
Michigan's track power this sea-
All second semester fresh-
men, sophomores and juniors
interested in trying out for
track manager positions should
report to either Don Canham
or Bud Low at the Yost Field
House between 3 and 5 p.m.
any afternoon this week.

With Michigan's toughest hock-
ey weekend approaching, Wolver-
ine hopes were somewhat damp-
ened yesterday as it became
doubtful whether ace defenseman
George Balestri would be avail-
able for the two-game series with
Minnesota Friday and Saturday.
Balestri Has Nine Goals
Balestri, whose unusual total
of nine goals for a member of the
rear guard ranks second on the
team in this department, sustained
a knee injury in the Queens game
last weekend and has been unable
to report for practice sessions as
yet this week. He also was out
earlier in the season because of
his knee and his absence was
greatly felt as the pucksters
dropped a 6-3 decision to Dart-
If Balestri cannot perform, this
would leave Coach Vic Heyliger
with but three defensemen against

the always tough Gophers: Cap-
tain Connie Hill, Herb Upton, and
hard-checking Bob Marshall.
Minnesota Tough
Coach Heyliger still plans to
use his revamped forward lines
against the onrushing Norsemen.
Gordon MacMillan, who scored
two goals and an assist in last
Saturday's game to take the lead
in scoring with 20 points, centers
the number one line and is flanked
by Lyle Phillips, high goal pro-
ducer of the squad with 10, and
Al Renfrew, recently moved up
from the second line. The num-
ber two line will see Bill Jacobson
at center and Ted Greer and Dick
Starrak at the wings.

The Bell System aims to keep the opportunity for advancement
open to all.
One of its traditions is that its executives come up from the
ranks. That has been true of the business for many years and
nowhere is it better illustrated than in the careers of the men
who now serve as presidents of Bell Telephone Companies.
As a group, they have put in 611 years of telephone service,
an average of 36 years each.
