THE MIChIGAN iAILY

Windsor, Michigan
Take Lo IceFriday

Wolverines Hold
Series Advantage
By HERB RUSKIN
One of the best teams in the
International Amateur Hocke
League, the Windsor Spitfires,
will be facing the Michigan hocke;
squad this Friday night as the
Wolverines take the ice in the
second game of their 1947-48 sea-
son.
The Spitfires will be seeking
their second victory of the series
that begun in 1946. In the four
games played thus far, the Mich-
igan sextet has emerged victorious
in three contests, limiting the Ca-
nadians to a single win.
In the first tilt of the series,
the Wolverines downed the
Windsorltes by a 7-2 margin.
Michigan also won the second
contest of that year, 8-5. The
JMaize and Blue pucksters con-
tinued their dominance into the
1946-47 season, taking a hard
fought 10-7 triumph.
The Spitfires garnered their
only victory late in the '46-'47
campaign, edging the Wolverines
6-5 on Windsor ice in a game
iarked with frequent penalties
and several injuries on both sides.
Only one of the Windsorites that
started last season's final tilt will
be on the ice for this year's face
off. He is Gordon Haidy, center
for the Spitfires, one of the high
scorers of the IAHL.
Earl Keyes and Elvon Dava-
naugh are the starting wings,
with Max Quackenbush, broth-
er of the Detroit Red Wing star
Bill Quackenbush, and Paul
Montforton at defense. Gordon
Buckley will be in goal for the
visitors.
Wolverine Coach Vic Heyliger
indicated that he would continue
the practice of using four lines
instead of the conventional three.
This innovation was first used in
last Saturday's game with Mc-
Master University when the Wol-
verines overwhelmed the invad-
ers, 13-1.
Michigan's first line will remain
the same as it has been, with
Gordie McMillan at center,
flanked by Wally Gacek and Al
Renfrew. Bob Marshall, defense-
man last year, Ted Greer and Bill
Jacobson will make up the num-
ber two forward wall.
The third line will consist of
Owen McArdle at center and
Sam Stedman and Len Brumm
on the wings. Al Nadeau will be
at center on the fourth line,
with Paul Fontana and Herb

Upton, another converted de-
fenseman, on the wings.
Connie Hill will, as usual, lead
the defense, with able support
from Ross Smith and Dick Star-
rak. In case of necessity, either
Marshall or Upton could be moved
back to their accustomed defense
slots. Jack McDonald will again
be in the Michigan goal.
Tickets for the game will go on
sale today at the Athletic Admin-
istration Building. They are 60
cents each and will be sold only to
students with their ID cards.

Elliott's Defensive Play
Will Spark_ Hoopsters

By IRV ZUCKER
A staunch defense, valuable ex-
perience, and speed are expected
to be Michigan's chief weapons
against the 20 competitors it will
face in the 1947-48 year.
However, the true strength of
the Wolverine defense, rated the
best in last year's Big Nine play,
probably won't be revealed for at
least another month. At that time,
Coach Ozzie Cowles hopes, Mich-
igan will be able to employ the
services of ex-captain Pete Elliott,
the all-around athlete from
Bloomington, Ill.
Elliott, Effective "Stopper"'
Elliott, one .of the most effec-
tive "stoppers" on defense in the
Conference last season, returns to
football practice this afternoon
with the Rose Bowl-bound Wol-
verine grid squad. He was work-
ing out with the hoopsters the past
two weeks.
The talented Wolverine might
have been the man to stop Don
Boven, Western Michigan's six-
foot three scoring threat who
canned 265 points last year, in this
Saturday's opener at Yost Field
House.
Flies From Rose Bowl
Immediately after the Rose
Bowl game, Elliott and end Irv
Wisniewski, second-string basket-
ball center last year, will fly to
Ann Arbor to rejoin the Maize and
Blue cagers.
Coach Cowles fears that Elliott
and Wisniewski will not be able to
whip into shape for hardwood ac-
tion at Toledo Jan. 3. (The hoop-
sters play five games during the
Christmas vacation.)
"It takes a lot of practice and

ifficult conditioning for a man

basketball court," Coach Cowles
sated.
owles Starts Second Season
The Wolverine cage mentor,
tarting his second season at the

Michigan swimming fans will be
treated to a pre-season glimpse of
the Wolverine natators Friday
and Saturday evenings when
Coach Matt Mann lifts the lid off
the tank season at the annual
Swim Gala.
"It's going to be one of the best
meets we've ever presented,"
Mann said. And from all indica-
tions his remarks are not without
cause. This year's two-day affair
will include all the thrilling fea-
tures of the past meets and will
introduce Adolph Kiefer, Olympic
backstroke champ and the Na-
tional Champion girl's synchron-
ized swimming group.
Kiefer Has Fine Record
Kiefer, who amassed a remark-
able record of 250 consecutive vic-
tories before Michigan's Harry
Holiday touched him out in May
of 1943, will be accompanied by
his beautiful assistant and will
present a varied program that
will ably demonstrate his talents.
The synchronized swimmers, a
group under the guidance of Mrs.
Mart E. DeRosier, captured the
National AAU championship in
women's precision swimming, at
Chicago last year and are current-
ly preparing for their 1947-48 sea-
son.
Surprises in Store
The unveiling of the 1948 Wol-
verine squad is liable to bring a
couple of major surprises to the
experts. Mann said that his squad
had shown amazing progress and
"I wouldn't be too surprised to see
a couple of world's records broken
in this two-day affair."
Those marks that are liable to
fall are in the 150-yard medley re-
lay and in the 100-yard breast-
stroke. Michigan's relay trio of
Captain Holiday, Bob Sohl and
Dick Weinberg will be aiming for
Mermen Add
Seven Marks
Holiday Credited With
Two Single Records
Seven records established by
Michigan swimmers during the
past year were recognized by the
AAU at their recent Omaha, Ne-
braska meeting as they considered
88 marks set by American ath-
letes in all sports.
Captain Harry holiday shared
in six of the records, setting two
alone and teaming with Wolver-
ines in four others. Holiday's
(individual mark came in the
quarter-mile backstroke which
he churned in 5:09.6 easily
eclipsing the old mark.
The other mark set by Holiday
came in Hawaii when he smashed
the 150-meter individual medley l
record. He was timed in 1:46.5 in
the 50-meter Waikiki Pool.
He teamed with Bob Soh and
Dick Weinberg to crack to 300-
meter medley relay mark with a
3:13.7 clocking and then with
Gus Stager replacing Weinberg
the trio added the 150-meter
medley record to their list with
a 1:28.8 performance.
jThe other two records Holiday
had a hand in were the 200-meter
and 400-meter freestyle rellys,
Holiday, Stager, Matt Mann III
and Charley Moss were credited
with these as they turned in timesI
of 1:49.8 and 4:04 flat to erase the
existing marks.
The final record went to Sohl,
who added the 100-meter breast-
stroke mark to his laurels. Sohn
negotiated the Waikii Pool in
1:09 flat to smash the former
American mark.

year against Wayne University.

AL Re-elects
Will Harridge
For 0 )Years,
NEW Y1RK, Dec. 9- )--Re-
election of Will Harridge as Amer -
ican League President for a 10-
year term was announced todayl
while the two majors discussed the
Pacific Coasts big league ambi-
tions in closed sessions.
A compromise was expected to
result by which the majors may
leave the door open for future ex-
pansion to include any pair of
cities from any section of the
country which prove they can
support that type of baseball.
If this plan, reportedly under
discussion today, is passed at the
joint meeting Thursday under
Commissioner A. B. Chandler, the
Coast's plans for provisional ac-
ceptance as a third major league
would be defeated.
The door would then be left
open for admission of certain
cities, such as San Francisco and
Los Angeles, after they have
brought their parks up to major
league standards and satisfied the
other members of their own
league.

PETE ELLIOTT
... in double demand
helm here, was pleased to see
eight lettermen return to this
year's hoop outfit.
"Both the squad and myself
have had a full season to become
acquainted," he said. "I believe I
know the type of basketball they
can play best and, on the other
hand, they know the type of play
I'm trying to coach."
Headded, "We should be an im-
proved club, as fast as last year
and more polished. Our success
will depend upon the ratio of im-
provement between ourselves and
the teams we play. Every one
should be better."
Coach Cowles will get a chance
to see how much his team has
improved on Saturday when the
Wolverine cagers open their 1947-
48 season against the powerful
Broncos of Western Michigan.
Bob Chappuis
Honored Again
Bob Chappuis gained further l
gridiron acclaim by being named l
to a backfield post on this week's
Look Magazine All-America team.
Earning second team recogni-
tion were Bump Elliott in a back-
field position and J. T. White at
center.
Theteams were selected by the
Football Writers Association of
America which is made up of 350
top football writers throughout
the country.
Named in the backfield with
Chappuis were Johnny Lujack of
Notre Dame, Bobby Layne, Texas
star and Charley Conerly, passing
ace of Mississippi.
