'Point A Minute' Tei
Achieves 'Mile A Game'

Pucksters Face Toronto
ICharity Game Tonight
Wolverines Seek First Victory of Series;
Canadians Have Experience Advantage

Gunning for their first victory
against Toronto since the inau-
gural of the nine game series,
Michigan's high flying hockey
squad meets the Canadians to-
night at 8:30 in the Chicago Arena
in what promises to be one of the
best games of the season.
Virtually the same team that
downed the Wolverines twice last
year will be available for tonight's
tilt. This in part, is due to a
Canadian collegiate rule that per-
~'mits athletes up to six years of
Toronto, too will have an ex-
perience advantage in that they
have seen more action this sea-
son than the Wolverines, hav-
ing played six games thus far.
Among their wins, they boast
ra 4-2 victory over McGill Uni-
versity, one of the collegiate
hockey powers in Canada.
Faced by the fast first line of
Wally Gacek, Al Renfrew and
Gordie McMillan, who have ac-
counted for 10 of Michigan's 17
goals this season, coach Vic Hey-
liger will send a seasoned squad
on the ice in the attempt to end
Xoronto's mastery.
On the second forward wall,
H)eyliger will have Bob Marshall,
Ted Greer and Bill Jacobson,
with Owen McArdle, Sam Sted-
man and Leonard Brumm on
the third line.
Michigan's fine defense duo,
Captain Connie Hill and Ross
Smith will have able support from
Dick Starrak and Herb Upton,
while Marshall, who effectively
teamed up with Hill last year on
defense, is always available if

needed. Jack MacDonald will be
in the nets for the Wolverines,
with Paul Milanowski as a spare
goal tender.
Toronto's coach, Ace Bailey,
a former Toronto Maple Leaf
star and now in his seventh
year as coach at the university
starts a team comprrised prin-
cipally of two year veterans and
no members of the squad are
without experience on the sen-
ior, or varsity, sextet or on the
Harry Boyd, Warren Winslow,
and Harrry Johnston will com-
prise the Toronto first line, while
the Canadian defense will be led
by Captain Ed Kryzanowski and
Bob LaRose. Don Saunders is the
Toronto goalie.
As able replacements for the
line, Bailey will have Don Bark,
Cecil Turcott and Bob Henry,
all two year men, as his second
forward wall.
The two teams will meet again
Friday night, this time in Ann
Arbor, in the Coliseum.
I-M Notice
All engineering students are
urged to attend a meeting at 7
p.m. tonight in the Anderson
Room of the Union. Plans for
forming a basketball team in
the I-M Independent League
under the sponsorship of the
Engineering Council will be
discussed. The council will fur-
nish uniforms and a manager
with some basketball experi-
ence is being sought.

League Set
To Start Play
Today is the final deadline for
entering teams in the Indepen-
dent League.
A total- of 23 teams now com-
prise the league. Competition will
begin the week following vaca-
tion with 12 teams playing every
Thursday night and the remain-
der on Saturday. Residence halls
and fraternities will also begin
their schedules following vacation.
Four residence hall tourna-
ments were decided earlier this
week. Monday night,3Lloyd House
defeated Hinisdale 3-2 for the
table tennis championship the
second consecutive year and Wen-
ley House took first in water polo
beating Winchell 3-2.
On Tuesday Fletcher won hand-
ball honors by defeating Mich-
igan House, 2-1, and Vaughan
defeated Winchell, 3-2, for the
volley ball trophy.
The Turkish club of the Inter-
national Center completed an un-
defeated season by winning the
International Center volley ball
DID YOU KNOW that in its se-
ries with Mich. Tech, the Wolver-
ine hockey team has been victo-
rious in 26 games while dropping
17 to the opposition. There have
been two ties in the series.

A star Wolverine basketball for
ward and the Spartan head coach
will be among the notable absen-
tees on each side of the court for
tonight's tradition-steeped Michi-
gan-Michigan State game at East
Mack Suprunowicz, slender 165-
pound speedster who has been
bothered with a head injury ever
since he injured himself in Sat-
urday's opener with Western
Michigan, will rest up in Ann Ar-
bor today instead of making the
55-mile road trip with the team.
The Spartans engage the
Wolverines minus the guiding
genius of their 54-year-old
mentor, Ben F. Van Alstyne,
who was recently stricken by
an emergency appendectomy.
Assistant Coach Alton S.
Kircher will direct the home
quintet at Jennison Field House
At any event, Michigan State,
which opens an ambitious 22-
game schedule with some of the
toughest competitors in this year's
collegiate ranks, will have to bank
heavily on their team speed
against the Wolverines.
Despite the temporary loss of
Suprunowicz, Coach Ozzie Cowles
is blessed with sufficient squad
depth to hurl at the Lansing lads.
He will probably select his two
starting forwards from "Dutch"
Weidra. Bill Mikulich, and Boyd
McCaslin-all of whom saw con-

siderable action in team victory
Capt. Bob Harrison, chief scorerI
in the campaign opener with 161
points,. and Hal Morrill, a sharp-
shooting southpaw, will start at
the guard posts.
Fans expect to see a keen
competitive duel between the
centers tonight. Wolverine Bill
Roberts, who towers 6 feet 6,
was exceptional on rebounds
and all-around play last week.
The home crowd is particularly
anxious to see Bob Brannum, for-
mer All<American at Kentucky in
1944 who transferred to State last
spring,.operate in the pivot spot.
Brannum will team with a
quartet of MSC letter-winners
that include Bill Rapchak, sopho-
more forward, who won his laur-
els before joining the Army in
Rotunding out the Spartan
front line will be Bob Geahan,
the squad's chief point-produc-
er last year with 235 points. Don
Waldron, a two letter-winner,
and Hugh Dawson, sophomore
sub last season, enter the start-
line-up in the guard posts.
The Spartans were counting on
versatile Robin Roberts, starting
forward in 19T46-47, to return to
the court scene this year. How-
ever, he signed a baseball con-
tract with the Philadelphia Phil-
lies, thus barring him from fur-
ther collegiate competition.

Swim Battle
Rag(es at I-M
In one that had the judges wor-
ried, Williams House squeezed out
a 31 to 30 victory over Adams
House in the Residence Halls
championship swimming meet last
Phi Delta Theta worked a 35 to
28 win over Chi Phi in a less dra-
matic but not less important race
for top position in the Inter-fra-
ternity swimming finals. The se-
ries which originally included 35
fraternities was concluded with
the meet last night.
The residence halls took top
honors for thrills in a closely
matched meet which ended their
series. Williams and Adams
Houses of the West Quaddcame
through the semi-finals in a
struggle which saw 19 residence
halls pit their aquatic talents
against each other.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
fourth in a series of articles on Mich-
igan's first Rose Bowl team.)
The name Fielding H. Yost is
now practically synonymous with
point-a-minute football since his
first Michigan team in 1901 rolled
up 501 points in the course of the
He himself admitted that "dur-
ing the season there have been a
number of remarkable occur-
rences. The team has carried the
ball over five miles; in the Buf-
falo game alone it was carried
1,900 yards."
Let's stop a minute and read
that aagin. That's right, in one
game the Michigan team piled up
over a mile in yardage. Those
were the days before the modern
forward pass, too.
This team also managed to
make an impressive record on de-
fense. Coach Yost states, "a fact
showing the great defense of the
line is that there has been only
one backfield tackle this season.

10 Barbers-No Waiting
The Dascoia Barbers
Liberty off State

"In the last three games (Chi-
cago. Beloit, and Iowa) the op-
ponents made first downs only
seven times. Four teams never
had possession of the ball in
Michigan territory, and but two
teams were inside of Michigan's
thirty-yard line."
Some people might get the idea
that the Michigan team consist-
ed of a group of giants weighing
well over 200 pounds each. Let's
see what "Hurry-up" Yost tells
us about this:
"Our team was speedy. It was
composed of muscular, wiry men
who had no superfluous weight.
Only one man on the team
weighed over 190 pounds, and only
three weighed less than 180
Fielding H. Yost summed it up
when he said, "I have nothing
but praise for the boys. They
played hard and earnestly and de-
serve all the honor that has come
to them."
