Trio of TopNoteh Pucksters To Return to Michigan

days prior.
Can't Win on Road
1 The explanation of this appar-
ent paradox seems relatively
simple. During the "Cowles Era"
of Michigan bake1 ball, Wolverine
teams have ieci known as a
"home" team.
This year the cagers have start-
ed off the same way, and Coach
Cowles seems to be faced with the
same dilemma that plagued himn
all through last season-that of
winning-on an opponents' court.
Last year Michigan succeeded
in winning only two games in Con-
, erence competition on the road.
Four Games Away
If Michigan hopes to be, a con-
tender for the Big Nine Title
this year they are going to have
to mend their ways, but fast, and
rid themselves of this jinx. Four
of their first six Conference games
are played on lorcign floors.
In the first two contests the
cagers sport a .500 average. They

won the first one-it was at home,
and then lost their next tilt-
it was away. Before classes start
next term, they'll have taken on
four more opponents, and only
one will be on their home grounds.
The Wolverines tackle Wiscon-
sin at Madison this Saturday
night, and then Cowles' cagers
get another shot at Northwestern
the last day of January in Ann
Arbor. The quintet journeys to
Ohio State and Illinois the first
week in February to roundI out
their between-term schedule.
MacIntosh Looked Good
In the Wolverines' only Confer-
ence appearance on the road this
season both Don MacIntosh and
Mack Suprunowicz have looked
very impressive, and may prove
to be the stimulus needed to start
producing some wins on the road.
In Monday night's encounter
MacIntosh had the Evanston
crowd gaping at his deadly pivot
shots. He led the way in the open-
ing minutes getting Michigan off
ot a 6-0 lead, but his mates failed
to follow his example.
Suprunowicz looked like his old
self again, leading the team in
scoring with 14 points, just two
ahead of Macintosh. Supey hasn't
been right since he was mauled
in the season's opener, but he now
appears to be well on the way' to

Two years ago Coach Vic Hey-
liger was in the midst of one of
the finest seasons a Michigan
hockey team has had in its 24
year history.
In the 1945-46 season the Wol-
verines notched 17 wins against
seven losses and copped the myth-
ical Big Nine championship by de-
feating Minnesota twice and ty-
ing them once in the four games
Starring for the Maize and
Blue skaters were Neil Celley,
Wally Grant and Wally Gacek
on the first line and Clem Cos-
salter and Connie Hill on the
Yesterday Heyliger announced
that Cossalter, Celley and Grant
were being returned by the Army
from Japan for discharge and
that they would be released in
tine for the second semester's
All three lads were offered posi-
tions on the AAU Olympic hockey
team which will represent the
United States in the St. Moritz
games next month and Celley ac-
cepted the bid. He will be flown
from Switzerland in time to begin
the Spring semester.
The trio will return to the
Coliseum ice ne:it month in
time to bolster the Wolverines in
their attempt to cop a place in
the first NCAA hockey tourna-
ment which will decide the na-
,tion's top puck aggregation.
Before the regular season's play
began this year, Heyliger stressed
the importance of this talented
trio to his hopes for a successful
season, explaining that their brief
stay on the Michigan rinks had
convinced him of their prowess in

records. The score was the highest
ever recorded by Michigan sex-
tets; nine tallies were scored in a
single period; five counters were
shoved into the netting in less
than four and one-half minutes
of play.
Wally Grant was runner-up for
scoring honors that year with 25
goals, four less than tieammat e
Gordie McMillan. Celley tallied 18
The return of Cossalter and
Grant will be especially signifi-
cant since the Wolverines are
gunning for the coveted nation-
al championship, which will be
decided in Colorado Springs,
Colo., this spring.
Three Midwestern teams are
eligible for participation in the
event, and the squad with the best
season's record will be selected as
the Midwest's representative.
Michigan Tech, Minnesota and
Michigan will battle it out during
the regular season to establish
the top team in the Midwest, and
the team chosen will meet repre-
sentatives from the Ivy League,
the New England League, and the
Far-West League in the play-offs.
Heyliger also announced that
Michigan has added another
game to its schedule. The Uni-
versity of California, which was
slated for a single appearance
in Ann Arbor, will meet the
Wolverines in two games on
February 16 and 17 at the Coli-
Michigan's pucksters face the
Gophers this week-end in a two
game series at Minneapolis. Min-
nesota will return the visit Feb-
ruary 13 and 14 when the home
and home series will be completed.

LOS ANGELES. Jan. l3-(A)-
Revision of 1948 Rose Bowl sta-
tistics today knocked Michigan
and Bob Chappuis out of two rec-
Statistician Charles Weinstock
report ed that he erred in credit -
in, two passes to Chappuis as for-
wards, when actually, movies es-
tablished later, they were laterals
and should have been credited to
the running side of the ledger.
Hence Chappuis' total net yard-
age was reduced to 91 running
and 139 passing, a total of 230,
just shy of Dixie Howell's mark of
239 established in 1934.
The change also reduced Mich-
igan's forwards completed total of
15, instead of 17, which had been
hailed as breaking Navy's record
of 16 completed in 1924.
One thing remained the same-
Michigan's total yardage of 491,
a new record no matter how it was
Oh, yes, and no one has figured
out a way to change the score:
Michigan 49, USC 0.
Michigan State 57, Marquette
Butler 67, DePauw 42.
Dubuque U. 58, Penn 37.
St. Louis 68, Long Island U.
The meeting of the Men's
Physical Education Club which
was to have been held tonight,
will be postponed until some-
time in the first week of next
semester, Dick Bodycomb, club
president, announced today.

Tougrh WaeAtion' on Trip East

With the swimming team pre-
paring to take the break in train-
ing for the finals period before
plunging into a stiff Eastern
swing, Coach Matt Mann beamed
broadly yestdrday as he lauded the
*work of the squad.
Tie time clock was out again
as Mann put his specialists
through their paces and he ap-
peared well satisfied with almost
every perforrmance.
Ile also anounced the addi-
tion of two meets and the with-
drawal of the Washington AC
as he made final arrangements
for the trip. Ie said that the 12
Wolverines making the trip
would meet Allentown, Pa., on
February 4 and face the tank-
sters of New York University on
February 6..
The Eastern swing will begin on
January 31 when the Mannmnen

face the Cleveland Club natators
in Cleveland. And then in the next
week they encounter five of the
best clubs in the East.
On February 2 they meet the
York AC in York, Pa., and the fol-
lowing day they face LaSalle Col-
lege, the home of National breast-
stroke champion, Joe Verdeur, in
After the Allentown meet they
have a day's break to travel be-
fore facing NYU swimmers. And
then on February 7 they face
the star-studded New York AC
in their final meet.
On their return to Ann Arbor,
the team will have less than a
week to prepare for their first
dual meet at home. They'll face
Dick Papenguth and his Purdue
Boilermakers in the I-M' pool on
February 13.

Celley, Grant and Cossalter
played together on the Eveleth,
Minn., high school team which
won the state hockey champion-
ship in their senior year.
One other member of the
1945 - 46 stellar aggregation
made his appearance at the be-
ginning of this season and has
starred in all six of the Wol-
verines' battles. Ross Smith, who
shared defensive duties with
Cossalter and Hill two years
ago, is now holding down the
left defense spot along side of
Captain Hill.

In recording the most wins in
one season, the 1945-46 team,
which was Heyliger's second as
mentor at Michigan, banged home
a record 167 goals. The previous
high had been the 76 goals netted
in the 1936-37 season when the
Wolverines won twelve games
against six losses.
The 17 games won was also a
new record for Michigan. the
previous high racked up in 19381
when a lad named Vic Heyliger
captained his team to 13 wins
against six losses.
On January 5, 1946, the Wol-
verines crushed the Sarnia Hockey
Club, 16-2, to establish three new
