Crispin, Ma

Natators to AAU Tit
Matt Mann's swimmers team
brought this year's Swim Gala to
a splashing climax last night as
they annexed each event in which
they were entered.
Bill Crispin captured the title
in the 50 yard M.A.A.U. Cham-
pionhhip race turning in a :24.1
stint. Dave Tittle and Bill Kogan
took second and third place to
keep the ledger all Michigan.
Mann Nips Stager
Matt Mann III and Gus Stager
put on a fine duel in the 440 yard
;;rind. The two men swam shoul-
der to shoulder for 400 yards, un-
til Mann put on a stretch drive
that was too strong for Stager to
match. Mann passed under the
wire about two yards ahead of
Stager in the time of 4:55.2 with
.Charlie Moss taking third.
The clock caught Harry Holiday
in :59.8 as he paddled his way to
the crown for the 100 yard back-
Bob Sohl had plenty again last
night as he won the 50 yard breast
stroke by beating out Bill Upthe-
grove and Harry Holiday in :26.7.
Urithegrove Takes 54
Bill Upthegrove came back to
capture the final event, a 50 yard
handicap dash, by nipping Jay
Sanford and D. Neisch in a hair
line decision.

Michigan squad versus Alex Can-
ja, captain of last year's swim-
ming team. Evans got the nod
with Canja finishing second and
Barney Cipiani and George Eyster
tying for third place.
Making a quick change of
costume, the divers put on a se-
quel to Friday night's session of
screwball antics, executing such
dives as the diving swan and the
horse-and-jockey dive in unimita-
ble fashion. Alex Canja started
the burlesque when he dived off
the high board in a nicely pressed,
single breasted, brown suit. The
horse play continued until Tim-
bourn's red underwear started to
alter the color of the water.

Chicago Rockets'
Franchise Ended
NEW YORK, Dec. 13-(JP)-The
F~ranchise of the Chicago Rockets
was terminated today but the All-
American Conference announced
that a new group would be formed
to continue challenging the Bears
and Cards of the National League
for Chicago pro football patron-
The franchise was taken over
temporarily by the Conference
and the club's draft rights will be
protected at the annual meeting
which originally was scheduled to
get under way Monday.
Jonas Ingram, Commissioner of
the two-year old loop, would give
no indication who would under-
take to finance the erstwhile
Rockets next season but from Chi-
cago came reports that Daniel F.
Rice, grain dealer,, and Col. Henry
Crown, President of the Materials
Service Corp., might be the ma-
jority stock holders.
William S. Toohey, president of
the dispossessed group, attended
today's club owners' meeting and
said later that "I probably will be
connected with new group in a
minority way."

OSU Wins 82-70
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 13-(I)-
Ohio State's Buckeyes, with cen-
ter Neil Johnston hitting for 29
points, outshot Marquette's bas-
ketball team 82-70, in the Hilltop
gymnasium tonight.
Marquette came from behind to
knot the score at the half, 35-all
but the Buckeyes came on fast
and pulled away to win.

CHICAGO, Dec. 13-(IP--The
Big Nine faculty representativesl
today deferred action on the ques-
tion of eligibility of star halfback
Chalmers (Bump) Elliott of Mich-
igan for the 1948 football season.,
Under the Conference code, El-
liott-due to a war-caused stay at
Purdue as a Marine trainee in
1943-44-reportedly was eligible
for a fifth football season. He
played at Michigan this year and
in 1946.I
The faculty group, however, re-{
ported at its closing session that
"several questions concerning ac-
tual facts" in the case could not
be answered now and it was tabled
until the next regular Confer-
ence meeting. Nature of the ques-
tions which developed and who
brought them up were not dis-
Previously, both Commissioner
K. L. (Tug) Wilson and Michi-'
gan's Ralph Aigler, Chairman of;
the Conference Eligibility Com-
mittee, indicated that a rule
counting 12 successive months as
one "college year" gave Elliott
only one season of competition at
Purdue, although he played parts
of both the 1943 and 1944 cam-
Michigan requested a ruling on
Elliott, who was regarded as one
of the best backs in the Con-
ference and rated better than his
star teammate, Bob Chappuis, by
some coaches.
The faculty men waived three
minutesaofacompetition by half-
back Mel Groomes of Indiana in
1944, giving the Hoosier player
another season of eligibility.
The three-day winter conclave
closed without any public airing
of recruitingcharges which gen-
erally had been expected, but con-
ference spokesmen admitted that
the subject was discussed in lively
fashion behind closed doors in a
joint session of faculty represen-

tatives, athletic directors and foot-
ball coaches.
One faculty representative said:
"You can expect complaints
against recruiting and athletic ir-
regularities every day of the year,
but proving them is another mat-
ter. In our meeting, a lot of people
found they were impressed by only
The group indicated that re-
vision of the Conference Hand-
book of Rules and Regulations was
nearly completed, but that most
of the changes were minor.

DETROIT. Dec. 13-(PA)-Three

In other events Wolverine pole
vaulter, Ed Ulvestad soared 13 feet

for the beginning of the Indoor

improvement of three feet over
his best previous performance.

ence 880 champ, had Coaches

"U" Control Asked
The members feel that, since
they sail under the name of the
University, their actions reflect on
the school itself and should be
under greater control by the Uni-
Officials of the organization, a
member of the Midwest Colle-
giate Sailing Association, can use
as a convincing argument its fine
record of three firsts and one sec-
ond place in the four races in
which the club participated.
The initiial win was registered
during the May 3-4 weekend, when
they took the Michigan Invita-
tional Midwest Dinghy Regatta at
Whitmore Lake in a field of five
Because Michigan was the spon-
soring school, it was ineligible for
the trophy and Michigan State,
the next highest point team was

named the winner. Northwestern,
Denison, and Youngstown followed
in that order.
Denison, MSC Defeated
Two weeks later the Michigan
sailors defeated teams from Den-
ison and Michigan State in a
triangular meet held again at
Whitmore Lake.
The club confined itself to intra-
club races during the summer, but
continued its winning ways at the
Denison Invitational Trophy Re-
gatta, which was held in October.
Whitmore Lake was once more the
scene of activities.
Beat Eight Schools
Michigan defeated eight schools,
the losers in order of their finish
being Ohio State, Northwestern,
Ohio Wesleyan, Wisconsin, and
Hillsdale. The other two schools,
Michigan State and Youngstown,
were eliminated in the preliminary
Over the Thanksgiving weekend,
the Michigan sailors, using the
unfamiliar Dyer type dinghys,
came in second in the Northwest-
ern Invitational Trophy Regatta.
The Purple crew took the event,
and behind Michigan came Ohio
