One night about three years ago
a future Michigan hockey player
sat up late burning the whale bone
lamp writing letters, this in Moose
Jaw, Saskatchewan.G
In due time the dog. sleds
brought replies, and it turned out
that Michigan was the only school
of the bunch that had a hockey
team. This is accepted explana-
tion of why Dick Starrak is now
cutting the ice for the Maize and
Blue. But whether it was this, or
that great propaganda epic, "Har-
mon of Michigan," which did the
trick, everybody is quite satisfied
with the results.
As all rabid fans know, Dick
plays defense on this year's ag-
gregation, a shift from the
wing position he held down his
first two years on the Varsity.
But whatever the spot, Starrak
brings a vast experience of the
position. It seems that since the
ripe old age of six, when he went
on strike to get a pair of skates,
some aspect of the frozen sport
has called him.
While it has never been abso-
lutely proven, rumor has it, he
played street hockey during the
snmmer thaw. His first real knock
'em down, high-sticking game
came at the age of eight when he

laid low the neighborhood with a
rifle-like shot.
While still in his nonage, a mild
plague swept the city, putting all
the small fry under with either
the mumps or the measles. It
seems that neither Dick or Gordie
McMillan, another "M" man from
Moose Jaw, could abide the stric-
tures of their case of mumps. So
they drummed up all the neigh-
borhood hellions, forming two
teams, "Da Mumps" and "Da
Measles." Starrak and McMillan
led their team to victory and a re-
Hockey didn't claim quite all
of the time, however. In high
school, he lettered in both foot-
ball and baseball, and, in his
own words, "forever remained
a frustrated track man!" La
.Crosse wasn't a school sport
but he managed this too.
The local lights soon graduated
into the town's amateur team, the
Moose Jaw Monarchs. Sparked by
such ale-bodied men, they went
on to win the Juvenile Champion-
ship of Alberta-Saskatchewan.
And it is a winning tradition Dick
brought with him, for his first
two years here were on the first
Big Nine hockey champs Mich-
igan has had for an eon or so.

The 1948 edition of the Michi-
gan freshman basketball squad is
beginning to take shape with a
20-man squad having been select-
ed by Coach Joe Van Cisin from
the more than 80 original tryouts.
First Scrimmage
In the first intra-squad scrim-
mage held just before the Christ-
mas vacation, Van Cisin was given
a chance to single out his most
promising players. Making a good
showing were Chuck Olsen, 6'1"I
from Detroit playing the center
Badgers Deal
5-Man Draw,
MADISON, Wis., Jan. 7-(A-1)--
Coach Bud Foster's sleeves are
empty as far as any hidden aces
are concerned, but the last shuffle
he's given his University of Wis-
consin basketball squad h as
raised the ante on his cagers'
chances in the Big Nine Confer-
ence campaign.
The shuffle, which has one ex-
center playing guard and another
operating at a forward, has paid
off in the standings. The Badgers,
defending conference champions
on a 9-3 record a year ago, top
the ladder with victories over Illi-
nois and Minnesota despite pre-
season dope which rated them
among the also-rans.

position and Chuck Murray 5'10"
of Birmingham, Alabama, who
held down one of the forward
berths. As guards, Les Popp of
Fort Wayne, Ind., Al Martin of
Grand Rapids, and Lil Vanderkuy,
a 6'5" boy hailing from Holland.
Mich., showed up as promising
players. Vanderkuy is the tallest
of the aspirant cagemen.
Six other candidates were
praised by Coach Cisin. These ca-
gers are Hank Steck, of Owosso,
Mich., doubling as forward and
center and Neil Brown, of Detroit
who fits in at center along with
Dick Ely of Toledo, O. Others
seeking guard positions were Jerry
Burns of Ann Arbor and Bill Agre
from Saginaw.
Not Final
Close on the heels of this first
ten are Bill Blumenthal, Bill Eg-
genberger, Hal Harrington, Al
Lipnick, Frank Maple, Jim Power,
Walt Young, Don Campbell and
Gordon Tarrant, who have been
given no definite position but
work out with the entire squad.
The choices made for the first ten
are by no means final but are
mostly on the results of the first
scrimmage and can be altered at
any time.
These 19 platers have paced the
eighty freshmen and transfer stu-
dents that Coach Van Cisin re-
ceived with his call for tryouts.
Since practice started, mostly de-
fensive skills have been stressed
with the exception of the pre-
Christmas scrimmage.


Red Wings Invade Courtroom
To Defend Defenseman Kelly
DETROIT, Jan. 7-(P)-Fifteen members of the Detroit Red
Wings National League hockey club appeared in traffic court today
to lend "moral support" to the defense of 20-year-old defenseman
Leonard (Red) Kelly.
Kelly, charged with making an improper left turn, listened with
dismay as his fellow defenseman Jack Stewart acted as defense
But Stewart's questions and apparent lack of legal knowledge
prompted Traffic Judge John D. Watts to tell Kelly:5
"You had better get another attorney before you go to jail.
This man (Stewart) sounds more like a prosecutor."
Kelly was convicted but sentence was suspended.
The red-head, though not drawing any time in the penalty box,
found the traffic judge as strict as any National Hockey LeagueI
ref eree.

Olympics, Television, Football
Rules Head NCAA Schedule
NEW YORK, Jan. 7-P)-College football coaches recommended
only two minor rules changes for' 1948, track coaches asked for an
NCAA meet on an Olympic basis and baseball mentors bid for Olym-
pic recognition today as the National Collegiate Athletic Association
opened its 42nd annual convention.
These were the major developments among coaching organiza-
tions affiliated with the NCAA, whose executive committee restricted
its initial sessions to appointments, date-setting and a discussion of
television's place in college athletics.
Tomorrow the Executive Committee will be handed a liberalized
version of the so-called "sanity code," approved a year ago as a means
to curb subsidization and intended in its present form as an amend-
ment to the Association's constitution.
This group turned down such proposals as the elimination of the
point after touchdown, abolition of the free substitution rule and the
making of a 5-formation quarterback eligible for a pass whenhe does
riot stand a yard behind the line of scrimmage.

"From here on in it'll be hard
wo-k and plenty of it." Coaci

sumed practice in preparation for
one of thle toughest schedules ever
drawn up for the Wolverine tank-
In a meeting of the varsity
yesterday Mann said that the
team will have a double incen-
tive this year in tit they'll be
earnestly after the Big Nine and
NCAA crowns now worn by Ohio
State and individually the nat-
ators will be after those coveted
berths on the United States
Olympic Team.
The regular season gets under
way the week after the Spring
term commences, but the squad
voted yesterday to accept the in-
vitations proferred by various
Eastern aggregation, for five
meets between semesters. Twelve
men will be named to make the
trip starting right after finals and

they'll meet some of the top swim-
ming clubs in the East.
With the returtn of freestyler
Dick Weinberg, who was laid
up with a siege of tonsilitis and
pneumonia during the v.cation
the varsity will really go at it
in earnest. Coach Mann said
that with. the abundance of
freestylers on hand it would
take a :51.8 or better clocking
for the 100-yard dash to make
the 400-yard reIty team.
He decided to return Charley
Moss to his normal freestyle role
where Moss has shown so well
thus far and leave the remaining
breaststroke posts open to Bill
Upthegrove and Irv Einbinder.
Time trials will continue
throughout the week and into
next week and then the natators,
will ease off until after finals and
