512 East William - One Block from State St.
Hours: 11:30 *-1 :30, 5:00 -8:00 Closed Monday



The trio swimming with a five
second handicap was clocked in
1:17.4 to set the new mark.
The Wolverines of 1948 put
on a magnificent performance be-
fore over 1,000 spectators as Matt
Mann's charges dominated every
race. In the 150-yard freestyle a
quintet of Michigan natators all
bettered 1:30. The race was won
by Matt Mann IIL, in 1:26, who
barely touched out teammates Gus
Stager and Bill Kogen. Dave Tittle
and Jay Sanford were less than
two stroke behind in the closest
race of the evening.
A comedy diving act, put on
by three Wolverine divers, stole
the special events portion of the
Gala away from the featured
stars, Adolph Kiefer and the
National Girl's Synchronized
Swimming Champs. Gil Evans,
Ralph Trimborn and Tom
O'Neill put on a riotous show
featured by Trimborn's entrance
through the ceiling and O'Neill's
antics in a woman's costume
Kiefer and his beautiful assist-
ant Dorothy Daniels went through
a highly entertaining routine with
Kiefer finishing up with a 25-
yard back stroke stint unofficially
timed in :13.1 as he flashed the
brilliance that made him the
world's greatest backstroker.
The synchronized swimmers,
under the direction of Mrs. Mart
E. DeRosier, also ably demon-
strated why they were declared
national champions in Chicago
last year.
On the whole Michigan swim-
mers dominated every event they
competed in, taking all but three
places. In the 100-yard breast-
stroke Sohl was followed by Moss
and Bill Upthegrove, while in the
medley a Wolverine trio of John
Donaldson, George Olson and
Bruce Witherspoon finished sec-
ond while Johnny McCarthy, Tom
Coates and Jay Sanford placed
O'Neill, in addition to his'
comedy stint, easily copped the
low board diving title as he de-
feated Fletcher Gilders, unat-
tached, and Barney Cipriani of
the Detroit YMCA.
In the 50-yard backstroke Holi-
day, giving away three seconds in
the handicap, touched out Jack
Barnes and Donaldson, both fresh-
men on this year's squad. Holiday
was clocked in :27.0, four-tenths
of a second off his record of :26.6.
Coates took the 75-yard handi-
cap freestyle with a :41.4 clock-
ing, nosing out Jack Jensen of
the Detroit YMCA, Kogen and
Bill Crispin of Michigan dead-
locked for third place.
In other special Michigan
AAU championships, little, elev-
en year old Peter Fries, brother
of Michigan's great Charley
Fries captured the boys under
12 50-yard freestyle in :32.6 as
Buippy Jones of the Chikopi
Club set a new Michigan rec-
ord in the 50-yard freestyle
for boys under 16 with a :26 flat
Another entirely different pro-
gram gets under way tonight at
8:00 p.m. with the same featured
performers presenting their acts.
Golf Sehedule
Is Annouinced
Michigan's 1948 golf team faces
a strenuous dual schedule this
season as they attempt to retain
their Conference crown..
At a meeting of Big Nine
coaches in Chicago yesterday a
six match dutl schedule was ar-
ranged including matches with
Ohio State, Northwestern, Pur-
due and Notre Dame.

In addition a five-way meet
with Ohio State, Illinois, Purdue
and Indiana has been arranged
and the linksters wind up their
season on May 28-29 at Evan-
ston with the Conference cham-

from the I-M league to the big
time with an understudy role to
Roberts at center.
All of these boys except Mc-,
Intosh were around last Decem-
ber when Western hung a 65-61
defeat on them in Cowle's Michi-
gan debut. The little man hasn't
forgotten that game and is3
gunning for revenge. However, he
faces no easy task.
Broncos Tough
A mid-western powerhouse year
in and year out, the Broncos bring
to town a big, experienced outfit
that averages 6'2" and boasts
three wins and a last minute loss
to powerful Long Island in com-
petition so far.
Coach Buck Read who has post-
ed a phenomenal .691 winning av-
erage in 26 years at Western
against some of the best competi-
tion in the land, will field Bob
Fitch and Bernie Compton at for-
wards, Don Boven at center and
Chuck Brown and Mel Van Dis
at guards.
Boven, Van Dis Stars
Boven and Van Dis were the big
guns last year when they scored
592 points between them and have
shown no signs of slacking off this
Fitch had a bad year last sea-
son after being the team's top
point-maker in 1945, but is fast
regaining his old form. Brown and
Compton cane along fast in the

It took a tie-breaking goal by'
Gordie McMillan with but 26 sec-
ends remaining in the game to
give the Wolverine hockey team a
4-3 victory over the Windsor Spit-
fires last night before 1.3U0 wildly
cheering fans in the Coliseum.
Pandemonium broke loose as
the veteran center took a pass
frcm defenseman Connie Hill and
fired a high hard shot past Gor-
don Buckley, Spitfire goalie, who
made a valiant, but futile, attempt
to halt the puck.
The goal broke a 1 minute-
old third stanza deadlock which
the visitors had gained at 6:50
on a goal by Bob Bailey from
Paul Monforton.
McMillan was easily the offen-
sive star of last night's contest as
he scored assists on Michigan's
other three goals, making a total
of four points. It was McMillan's
100th point in his little over two
years with the Wolverines.
The visitors started out like a
house afire,. in the first period,
displaying a high powered at-
tack that featured some fancy
passing and good stickhandling.
Windsor drew first blood when
Nonforton flipped the puck to
Bill Core who sent it into the
Michigan net.
Al Renfrew tied it up for the
Wolverines, 10 minutes later,
teaming up with Renfrew'to end
the first period scoring.
It didn't take Michigan long
to take the lead in the second
period, Gacek countering at
0:13 with assists to Al Renfrew
and McMillan. The Wolverines
maintained the offensive ad-
vantage, although the scoring
continued in a see-saw man-
ner, with Windsor tying it up
again at 7:19 on a goal by John
Bailey from Cameron Church.
Michigan took the lead again
when Renfrew tallied his second
goal of the game, McMillan again
assisting at 13:16. This ended the
scoring until Windsor's tying goal

in the third period, and McMil-
Ian's subsequent clincher.
Connie Hill and Ross Smith
played their usual fine game on
defense for the Maize and Blue,
while Jack McDtonald deserves
special mention as he made sev-
eral beautiful saves in the Mich-
igan goal, averting possible
Spitfire scores.
Windsor's coach, Jimmy Skin-
ner, had nothing but praise for
the winning Wolverines, stating,
"Michigan has a pretty great team
and with a little more condition-
ing, they'll be really great. We'd
like to play them again."

We have one hundred Round-Trip

They Said It:
Coach Jimmy Skinner, Spitfire
mentor, and Gordie Howe and
Ted Lindyay, Detroit Red Wing
forwards, paid tribute to the
Michigan puck squad last night
after the Wolverines had defeated
the hard-playing Windsor aggre-
gation, 4-3.
"The lads haven't reached their
peak as yet, but when they do,
they'll certainly be a wonderful
team," Skinner said in the hushed
Spitfire locker room after the
game. "They'll definitely give To-
ronto a good run next week."
Howe, who indicated that Mich-
igan would improve as the season
progresses, singled out Bob Mar-
shall as the outstanding W olverine
player. "He's the one boy I
wouldn't like to tangle with," the
Detroiter said.
Lindsay completed the praise,
stating,"Michigan should do well
this year. The boys are rugged
and play hard."
