Nodaks Seek To Upset
Unbeaten Hockey Teamn
Injury To Keep Brumm from Seeing Action;
Renfrew, McMillan, Gacek Pace Wolverines

Aiming for their fifth game
without a defeat, Michigan's
hockey team will take the ice to-
night in the first of a two game
series against the University of
North Dakota at 8:30 in the Coli-
This will be the first puck
meeting between North Dakota
and the Wolverines who have
won three games and tied one
since the beginning 'of the sea-
son. The Michigan squad boasts
victories over McMaster, the
Windsor Spitfires and the Uni-
versity of Toronto. The other
game with Toronto ended in a
4-4 tie.
The Wolverines will be playing
without the services of Leonard
Brumm, third line forward, who
suffered a brain concussion in
practice earlier this week. Other-
wise, the squad will be in top
shape for their first game of the
new year.
Al Renfrew, Gordie McMillan
and Wally Gacek will, as usual,
make up the Wolverine sextet's
first line, with Bob Marshall,
"Ted Greer and Bill Jacobson as
the second forward wall. On the -

Splits, Strikers Lose
The Splits and Strikers, pre-va-
cation leaders, both lost their
matches. In the evening's most
spirited match the Splits lost to
the rejuvenated Turkeys 3 to 1.
The Turkeys, for the first time
since November, were rolling at
full strength and gave a good ac-
count of theiselves with Al Wis-
tert an& Capt. Ralph Wildermann
leading the way.
The Strikers were upset by the
underrated Dales 3 to 1, and the
Spares downed the Gamma Del-
tas 4 to 0 to move into the first
place tie with the Strikers and
Wild Men Win
The Wild Men defeated the En-
gineers 3 to 1 and share the sec-
ond place spot with the Turkers.
The Shackers shut out the lowly
Phi Kappa Taus 4 to 0, and the
Lawyers defeated the Bowl-Hards
3 to 1.

third line, Wolverine Coach Vic
Heyliger will have Sam Sted-
man, Owen McArdle and Paul
Fontana available for duty.
Heyliger indicated that there
would be some shifts between
the second and third line, trying
various combinations.
Michigan's ace duo, Connie Hill
and Ross Smith will lead the de-
fense, with Dick Starrak and Herb'
Upton as able spares. Jack Mc-
It has been requested by the
players and Coach Vic Heyliger
that spectators at the hockey
games refrain from smoking
except in the outer lobby. The
smoke affects the ice and the
visibility of the players. "M"
Club members have been asked
to enforce this request. Com-
plete cooperation will be appre-
ciated by all concerned.
Donald, who is having one of his
best years, will be in the Wolver-
ine nets.
The 1947-48 season marks the
return of the North Dakota sex-
tet to intercollegiate competion
after ? war-time lapse and
boasts a new hockey set-up from
the top down. Led by their new
coach, Don Norman, from St.
Johns, the Nodaks have quite a
few outstanding high school
players from northern Minne-
sota and according to Heyliger
are a "good team."
Their standing line-up will
probably consist of Charles Med-
ved, Bill Sullivan and Gordon
Christian on the forward line,
with Joe Silovich and Paul Mc-
Kinnon at defense and Art For-
mar in goal.

Loss of Three
Valuable Men
Hits Gymnasts
Coach Newt Loken had nothing
but troubles on the very eve of
his gymnastic team's against Cen-
tral Michigan this afternoon, as
three members of his seven man
varsity squad were suddenly wiped
off the available list.
Exam Keeps Tillman
Co-captain Tom Tillman, one
of the best all around performers
on the squad will be left behind to
tangle with a psychology exam
when the team departs for Mt.
Pleasant at 10 a.m. today.
Hack Coplin, another standout
Wolverine acrobat, suffered a
fractured wrist while practicing
on the high bar Wednesday, and
will be lost to the team indefinite-
Shoendube Ill
On top cf all this, Bob Shoen-
dube found himself confined to
the health service with a case of
chickenpox. Loken has done some
fast manuering to fill the vacant
spots and to give the team the best
possible balance in the six events
that make up the meet. Each team
is allowed three men in each event
but the same man can enter any
number of events.
Fred Butt has been added to the
roster for today's meet and will
perform on the parallel bars in
place of Tillman, who was sched-
uled to compete in all six events.

Though the season has hardly
begun, Michigan swimmers seem
to be working harder than usual.
chopping precious seconds off
their times-with two views in
mind, one, the Conference title
and the other, a berth on the
United States Olympic squad.
Six swimming events and
high and low board diving will
occupy the slate at the three
day meeting, July 9-11 in the
spacious River Rouge pool in
Detroit. And according to
Coach Matt Mann, the chances
are excellent for Wolverines
making up the largest contin-
gent of mermen that will com-
pete against the tops in the tankj
sport during the week of July
28-August 3 in London, Eng-
Four freestyle events, the 100-
meter, 400-meter and 1500-meter
races in addition to the 800-meter
relay make up the major portion
of the events. Specialists will get
their chance in the other events, a
100-meter backstroke and a 200-
meter breaststroke.
In the freestyles Mann said
that five Michigan natators
have excellent chances of being
selected. He said that Dick
Weinberg, ace s pr inter, is
ranked along with Wally Ris of
Iowa as those to beat in the 100-
meter event. He also stated that

Charley Moss and Bill Kogen
both have good chances of mak-
ing the squad.
Moss and Kogen are also likely
prospects in the 800-meter relay.
Six men will be chosen in the
Olympic tryouts and from these
four will swim 200-meters each in
the London meeting.
In the 400-meter, Mann said
that Gus Stager and Matt Mann
III have fine chances of being
among the three men selected for
this event. He also said that
Mann might give young Jimmy
McLane of Andover Academy a
strong tussle in the 1500-meter
In the backstroke Captain
Harry Holiday stands "head and
shoulders above anyone else,"
Mann said, and though compe-
tition can be expected from Alan
Stack of Yale, Bob DeGroot of
Ohio State and Dick Maine of
Iowa. Holiday's chances of mak-
ing the team are excellent.
Roughest competition of any
event is expected in the selection
of the three man breaststroke'

contingent. Michigan's Bob Sohl
will have to fight off challenges by
world's record holder Joe Verdeur
of LaSalle College, Don DeForrest,,
and Keith Carter of Purdue. Ver-
deur's best time for the compara-
ble 200-yard event is 2:16.4, while
Sohl turned in a 2:19.5 clocking
to set the Western Conference rec-
ord last year.
Gil Evans represents Michi-
gan's strongest threat in the
platform and three-meter div-
ing events, but here too the
competition is topnotch. He'll
have to fight it out with the big
three from Ohio State; Miller
Anderson, Bruce Harlan and
Hlobie Billingsley in addition to
Rutger's Ralph Buratti and
Jack Sper of North Carolina.
With the return of the Olympic
games the amateur athletes
throughout the world have one
thought in the backs of their
minds-that of making the Olym-
pic squad. And Michigan swim-
mers feel the same way as they go
all out for a coveted berth on the
1948 team.
