Coach Heyliger has announced'
his probable lineup for the initial
match and is standing by the same
lads who started last Friday night
in the exhibition game with the
Detroit Red Wings.
Gordie MacMillan will be at
center ice for Michigan and the
wing positions will be filled by Al
Renfrew and Wally Gacek. Ross
Smith and Capt. Connie Hill will
hold down the defense slots and
Jack MacDonald, veteran goalie,
will mind the nets.
Michigan Holds Edge
Rivalry between McMaster and
Michigan dates back to 1935 when
the Wolverines edged the Cana-
dians, 6-4. The record now stands
at five wins, one loss, and two ties
for Michigan.
In 1936, the McMaster team
fought off last-minute desperation
plays by the Maize and Blue puck-
men to even up the series, win-
ning, 6-5.
The next two games went to the
Wolverines by scores of 6-3 and
5-0 and in 1939 and 1940 the con-
tests ended in deadlocks. No fur -
ther games were played due to Whe
advent of war on the scene until
1946 when the. Heyligermen cele-
brated the renewal of competition

skiing club, Ullr, is scheduled

with the 13-6 trouncing of the
McMaster six.
Last season the Wolverines once
again displayed a powerful scor-
ing punch when they trotted off
to the dressing room at the end
of the game with an 11-4 win
registered behind them.
Scoring Record Set
A scoring record was set in that
game when the Michigan men
scored four goals in one minute
and 48 seconds of the second pe-
Friday night's exhibition game
with the Red Wings gave Mich-
igan fans the first opportunity of
seeing Heyliger's latest team in
action. The Wolverines "won" the
"contest," 9-7, but had to rely on
the able assistance of the De-
troiter's first line and star goalie.

MORE HONORS FOR CHAPPUIS-Michigan's backfield ace and
leading Big Nine ground gainer, Bob Chappuis, grabbed a spot
in the dream backfield of the 1947 Associated Press All-America
team. Rounding out the backfield with 'Chap' are Johnny Lujack,
Notre Dame's big gun, Ray Evans, of the University of Kansas,
and Southern Methodist's sophomore sensation, Doak Walker.
Named to end position in the forward wall are Paul Cleary .
of Southern California, and Columbia's Bill Swiacki, whose

fantastic pass catching enabled the Lions to snap Army's win-
ning streak. At the tackle posts two gentlemen from the deep
South, Bob Davis of Georgia Tech and Dick Harris of Texas were
given the nod. The AP writers awarded guard positions to Steve
Suhey, standout performer for Penn State's unbeaten eleven
and Bill Fischer of Notre Dame. The pivot spot goes to Chuck
Bednarik of Pennsylvania's Ivy League Champs. Irish star, Johnny
Lujack is the only repeater from last year's AP selections.

NEW YORK, Dec. 2-UP)-Notres
Dame and Michigan, as befits the
victorious records of these Mid-
western football giants, dominate
the 1947 Associated Press All-
America squad announced today.
Johnny Lujack, Notre Dame's
superb T formation quarterback,
is the only repeater from 1946, and
is joined on the first team by Wil-
liam Fischer, sturdy Irish guard.
Notre Dame's tackles, Ziggy Czar-
obski and George Connor, are on
the second and third teams.

Ford, Michigan's towering defen-
sive end, is on the third team.
Thus each has four on the
squad, with Notre Dame the
only college to place two on the
first team.
Other first team members
are: Paul Cleary, Southern Cali-
fornia, and Bill Swiacki, Colum-
bia, ends; Bob Davis, Georgia
Tech, and Dick Harris, Texas,
tackles; Steve Suhey, Penn
State, guard; Charles Bednarik,
Pennsylvania, center; Ray
Evans, Kansas, and Doak Wal-
ker, Southern Methodist, backs.

year's trend to team play rather
than individual brilliance.
The 1947 season was distin-
guished from past years by
breaking all attendance records,
even those of lush 1946; by its
great crop of pass catching
ends; by a powerful group of
centers of almost equal ability;
and by the high level of back-
field performance without, how-
ever, a single dominating fig-
ure cast in the mold of such
heroes as Red Grange, Dutch
Clark, or more recently, Army's
Felix Blanchard and Glenn Da-
vis. There is in fact little to
choose between the men on the
All-America backfields down to
the third team.
The new rule lifting all bars on
substitutions meant that the "iron
men" of yesteryear have disap-
peared and specialists in all phases
of the game have taken their
At the other end is Paul
Cleary of Southern California, a
more balanced player, strong on
defense, a good pass catcher








Master of Michigan's offense,
Bob Chappuis, is in the first back-
field, with Bob Mann, Michigan's
great offensive end, and Chalmers
Elliott, regarded by many as a
back almost the equal of Chap-
puis, on the second team. Lenny

Geographically the first team
presents four Midwesterners, three
Easterners, three men from the
South and Southwest and one
from the Far West. Of the 33 men
on the three teams, six are from
the East, 11 from the Midwest, 12
from the South and Southwest,
and four from the Far West.
Selected on the basis of reports
from more than 250 Associated
Press newspaper sports editors and
staff writers, the composition of
the first three teams reflects the

and dangerous as a runner on
end-around plays. He seldom
makes a mistake, and when
Michigan and Southern Cali-
fornia meet New Year's day in
the Rose Bowl, Cleary's work as
compared to Michigan's superb
hankers, Mann and Ford, will
be closely watched. In private
life, Cleary typifies the best of
present day college men, for he
is 25 years old, married with a
daughter nearly two years old,
and served in the war as a lieu-
tenant in infantry, seeing ac-
tion in the South Pacific, the
Philippines and the occupation
of Japan.
Second and third team ends
crowd both Cleary and Swiacki for
honors. Mann of Michigan is fast,
with a peculiar knack of getting
back of the secondary, and is de-
scribed by Coach Fritz Crisler as
being "as good a pass catcher as
there is." Ford, the stellar Mich-
igan defensive end, in the opinion
of one shrewd observer, "has the
greatest pair of hands in football.
Joe Louis couldn't get too rough
for Lenny. Opposing blockers
bounce off Ford like wind-driven
spray." He .is six feet, five and
weighs 210. Barney Poole of Mis-
sissippi is another giant, six feet,
three and weighing 216. He is the
target for Charlie Conerly's superb
passes. Ike Owens, Illinois end
paired with Ford on the third
team, is one of the oldest front
rank players in college, being 27.
Another top-notch end of whom
much undoubtedly will be heard
in the next few years is Notre
Dame's 18- year-old sophomore,
Leon Hart, who stands six feet,
four and weighs 216. He was bare-
ly crowed off the first three All-
America teams.
