EXPERTS OPINE:
Michigan Sextet Slated
For Successful Season

By B. S. BROWN
If the statements of experts
nave any value, Michigan's hock-
ey squad is slated for one of the
best seasons in its history.
Three members of the Detroit
Red Wings praised the Wolverine
sextet's ability the other night af-
ter the Maize and Blue copped its
fourth match from the Windsor
Spitfires in the five game series,
4-3.
Ted Lindsay and Gordie
Howe, Red Wing forwards, and
Marty Pavolich, newly acquired
Wing center, claimed that
michigan has the weight and
the playing prowess to back up
its claim for a successful sea-
son,
Pavolich, who was called up
f.jromn the Indianapolis Capitals
last week, said, "The boys are
fast, they check hard, and they
are capable stick handlers. They
should do well this year."
"This Michigan team is a rough
bunch. I don't think I could last
much more than a year in this
league, especially if I kept get-
ting hit by a boy of Bob Mar-
shall's size," high scoring Ted
Lindsay said.
Howe added a personal
touch to his comments when
he said, "Bill Jacobson and I
used to play hockey together
when we were kids back in
Saskatoon (Sask.). I used to
look up to him and I watched
him carefully in hopes of learn-
ng a few tricks."
"Do you think the situation

might be reverseddnow?" Howe
was asked. "No I don't think so,
he answered,, "Jake's a fine play-
er, as are all of the other Michi-
gan players. I really enjoy seeing
them play."
Coach Vic Heyliger also praised
his charges after the contest end-
ed. "That's showing the fight, fel-
lows," the Wolverine mentor said,
"It was a beautiful game. We're
only starting but keep up the fine
work and we'll do all right."
Gordie McMillan, who won
the game in the final seconds of
play with a ten foot shot into
the Spitfire goal, gave credit
for the win to Connie Hill on
the latter'; game-winning as-
sist. "It was a perfect pass. I
couldn't help but sink it."
Nevertheless, "Gymie" received
most of the plaudits for the tie-
breaking goal and the three as-
sists that he added to his point
total.
"I wish that win had been
against Minnesota," Captain
Hill said. "Well, if we play the
way we did tonight, we won't
have much trouble," Jack Mc-
Donald, stellar Michigan net-
tender, answered confidently.
McDonald was credited with 32
saves in the Windsor game, sev-
eral of them brilliant game sav-
ing blocks.
Unbeaten in the nine game ser-
ies thus far, the University of
Toronto meets the Wolverines
next Thursday night in a benefit
match in Chicago.

Soh's Marks Fall
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Dec. 13-
(p}--The Purdue University
athletic department today cred-
ited Keith Carter, sophomore
tank star, with being the first
human to swim the 100 yards
breaststroke in less than one
minute.
Carter was timed at 59.4 sec-
onds for the distance last night
in the annual Purdue Aquacade.
The recognized world record is
1:00'6, set by R. R. Hough of
Princeton in 1939.
The Purdue sophomore was
timed at 1:05.2 for 100 meters,
compared with Hough's world
record of 1:07.3 for the dis-
tance. le rounded out his
night's work by swimming 110
yards freestyle in 57.5 seconds,
comp~ared with Johnny Weis-
muller's. accepted. American
record of 58.4 seconds set 25
years ago.

Olympics Add
Two Weights
For Grapplers
The proximity of the 1948 Ol-
ympics is putting the spark to
wrestling teams all over the
country and is causing much dis-
cussion by the respective coaches.
Head coach Cliff Keen has just
returned from Chicago where he
attended a conference of the Big
Nine mat mentors. It seems that
a few changes are necessary due
to the present Olympic wrestling
set-up.
At the same time, the selection
of officials for the coming sea-
son was made, the Conference
rules were given a thorough go-
ing over, and the Big Nine sched-
ule was reaffirmed.
The Olympics weight roster in-
cludes the 114'2 pound and 191
pound classes, which until now
were not a part of Big Nine com-
petition. The installation of these
two new weight groups will be
made by most Conference teams
including Michigan.
Interspersed with the regular
Conference tilts will be a quad-
rangular meet on January 31 at
Chicago involving Northwestern,
Minnesota, Ohio State and Mich-
igan, the regular Conference
champion determinant meet to be
held March 5 and 6 at Cham-
paign, and the annual NCAA
meet held this year on March 17
and 18 at Lehigh University.

still held a five-point lead, as the
score stood 15-10. Harrison ana
Suprunowicz each made two buck-
ets and Bill Roberts made a cou-
ple of foul shots to account for the
Wolverines' additional ten points.
Boven dropped in six points and
Bernard Compton and Wayne
Terwilliger each made a basket
to give Western Michigan a point
for each of the first ten minutes of
the game.
Take Big Lead
Michigan broke loose with a
barrage of two-pointers in the
next five minutes to assume a
commanding 27-10 lead before
Robert Fitch swished one for
Western Michigan.
Harrison and McCaslin each
made two shots, Bill Mikulich
sank one and Hal Morrill dropped
in two foul shots to swell Michi-
gan's total."
In the remaining five minutes of
the game Fitch and Brown made
three points each, and Bob Smith
sank a foul shot to end Western
Michigan's scoring in the period.

Discrimination
To Be Ended
In Southwest
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 13-()-
In three major moves, the Mis-
souri Valley Conference today
voted to strengthen its eligibility
rules and at the same time end all
"racial discrimination" at its
member schools.
Prof. E. G. Barrett of Drake
University, President of the Con-
ference and Chairman of the Fac-
ulty Committee, announced these
important actions by his group to-
day:
1-Effective with the opening
of the fall semester in September,
1948, "All transfers" from senior
colleges will be ineligible for com-
petition at Missouri Valley Con-
ference schools.
This does not apply to students
already enrolled.
2-All 'racial discrimination"
wil end at the Conference schools
effective September, 1950.
3-The Committee voted to
comply "100 per cent" with the
N.C.A.A. purity code. Barrett said
junior college transfers still would
be eligible for competition in the
Missouri Valley Conference, but
emphasized that the transfer rule
for senior colleges applied to "all
schools, in and out of the Confer-
ence."
The faculty representatives said
the end for racial discrimination
was set for 1950 in order to give
the members time to adjust their
local conditions. The Committee
would make no further comment
on this action.
(At present, only two of the
Conference's schools, Oklahomia
A. and M. and Tulsa, do not have
Negro students or compete against
Negroes at the Oklahoma com-
puses.)

For the second time in 'Mich-
igan's history, one of its football
machines is participating in the
New York's Day extravaganza.
The first team to play there
was Fielding H. Yost's fabulous ag-
gregation of 1901. The records
show that his team piled up 501
points in ten games during the
course of the season,
Fritz Crisler's powerhouse has
rolled up 345 points against
nine opponents this season. Al-
though there is a difference of
156 points in the totals of each

Back in 1902, after the Pasa-
dena contest, Coach Yost made a
summary of the season's play. He
said, "The first three games of-
fered no real test to the offen-
sive or defensive powers of the
team, and our first real struggle
w as against Northwestern."
His team beat Northwestern

minds of. all who saw the game
that Michigan's team was super-
ior in all departments."
Who said it? It could easily
have been 11. 0. Crisler, and just
as easily F. II. Yost for both
teams won by identical scores.
This particular statement, how-
ever, is attributed to the latter
as quoted from The Michigan
Daily News of January 15, 1902.
