Friday Night
MSC Seeks Initial
Win Over Wolverines
Michigan's powerful swimming
team will put its unblemished rec-
ord on the line this Friday night
when the Wolverines take on i
Michigan State's natators in the
East Lansing pool.
Though the meet will be anti-
climatic after the OSU affair last
weekend, it should supply some
excellent spectator material.
Seibold, holder of the NCAA
freshman record in the 200 yard
breast stroke, is expected to
give Michigan's Bob Sohl a good
tussle in the 200 yard breast
stroke event.
Another State man to watch will
be George Hoogerhyde, NCAA 1500
yar meters champion, when he
hits the water against a pair of
Michigan aces, Gus Stager and
Matt Mann III, in the 220 and 440
yard free style.
In addition to these two excel-
lent performers, MSC's coach
Charles McCaf free will have 14
lettermen on hand from last year's
team that annexed the Central
Collegiate Conference title and a
r fourth in the NCAA meet.
So far this season McCaffree's
team has picked up seven wins
while losing only one, that a
43-41 dousing at the hands 'of
OSU's fine bunch of swimmers.
The other common opponent of
both teams this year was Purdue
whom the Spartans walloped 58-
26. Michigan did a bit better
throwing the Boilermakers 64-20.
aIn the past, Michigan and MSC
have met 24 times, the WolverinesJ
always coming out on top. Last
rear Michigan's natators squeaked
oy MSC 45-39 when the relay team
came through in the final event to
decide the meet.
Matt Mann will be facing an-
.other of his proteges this weekend.
Coact} McCaffree once starred and
later mentored under Michigan's
veteran coach.
Large Turnout
For Golf Team
Pleases Coach
Michigan's only defending
championship team, the Wolver-
ine golfers, got off to a flying
start yesterday as 46 men report-
ed to the driving nets in the I-M
Building to try out for this year's
edition of the Michigan links
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer was
elated over the turnout, though
' he said, "This does not mean that
the complement is full. Anyone
may come out and we especially
need freshmen since only 15 men
reported yesterday."
Coach Katzenmeyer also an-
nounced that Bill Ludolph, a
mainstay of last year's team, will
act as his assistant and will han-
dle the Jayvee squad throughout
the season. Ludolph has returned
to Michigan to work on his Mas-
ter's Degree in History.
Led by Captain Ed Schalon, the
Wolverine varsity will have a nuc-
leus of four lettermen on which
to build. In addition to Schalon,
who is defending Western Confer-
ence champ, Katzenmeyer has
' Bill Barclay, National Intercol-
legiate titleholder, Rog . Kessler
and "Pistol" Pete Elliott return-

speculation as to who would take

'M' Guards on All-Conferences

Illinois Favored in Big Nine
TrackMeet at Champaign

Close upon the heels of Michi-
gan's capture of the Conference
basketball title came the an-
nouncement of the all-Big Nine
team selected by the Conference
coaches for the Associated Press.
Captain Bob Harrison and Pete
Elliott were given the nod as the
two top guards in the Big Nine.
Murray Wier of Iowa and Illinois'
Dwight Eddleman were selected as
forwards and lofty Jim McIntyre
of Minnesota was given the center
Tribute to Cowles -
The awarding of both defense
slots to Michigan's star guards is
a just and fitting tribute to the
work of Coach Ozzie Cowles. For
two years he has held that "the
other team can't score if they
haven't got the ball," and has
worked doggedly to perfect defen-
sive play.
But these are not the only rea-
sons why the Wolverines can
boast of having a stellar defense.
The record books show it in a Very
definite manner. Michigan has
had a total of 556 points tallied
against them, while the closest
rival, Wisconsin, has allowed 624,
a difference of 68 points.
Big Year for ElliottI
The other stellar guard, fiery-
topped Pete Elliott was having
trouble believing the Cinderella
existence he is leading. "From the
Rose Bowl to Madison Square

forced to make way for Elliott's
hustling ball playing when Con-
ference play began. But Morrill is
the man to remember in Monday's
Iowa contest.
Caused Turning Point
His stellar defensive play could
be called the turning point in
Michigan's sudden point splurge
and Iowa's just as sudden dirge of
buckets. He intercepted two down-
court passes to Murray Wier in his
role of ball-hawk, which gave the
Wolverines possession of the ball
and the chance to make those oh-
so-necessary points.
Morrill wasn't the only Wolver-
ine sub to come through when the
chips were down. Boyd McCaslin
,who has been playing behind Don
Macintosh entered the game mid-
way in the third quarter and pro-
ceeded to put on a great defensive
It was McCaslin's aggressive
play which helped calm the Wol-
verines' case of 'second half nerves'
and his beautiful pass to Bill Rob-
erts under the Michigan basket
set up the score that may well
have broken the Iowan's backs.
That's strange. It seems like
were's right back where we start-
ed. "A team can't score unless
they've got the ball." It looks like
an excellent case in point for
Michigan's beloved mentor, Ozzie

The grand finale to the Big
Nine indoor track season will be
staged next Friday and Saturday
in Champaign, Illinois, when all
nine league schools will send their
representatives to the annual
Western Conference Meet.
Illinois, last year's champions,
will be favored to walk off with
the cinder crown again this
season. The Illini will be hard
hit by the loss of star half-
miler Bob Rehberg and 440 man
Leroy Vranek, but they are ex-
pected to have enough team
balance to retain the title.
Chief threats to Illinois supre-
macy are expected to come from
Ohio State and Michigan. The
dopesters are naming the Buck-

eyes as the number one challeng
er-mainly because of Lloyd Duff.
Duff, Ohio's amazing all-round
man is expected to cop points in
four events.
The Wolverines, with Herb Bar-
ten and Charlie Fonville are ex-
pected to be right up among the
Other individual performers
who are expected to command a
lot of attention at the Champaign
get-together include Don Gehr-
mann, Wisconsin miler who has
turned in the best efforts for his
distance during the dual meet sea-
son; and Indiana's Tom Mitchell
and Chuck Peters, standout hur-
dler and dash man respectively.

Pucksters Will Seek National
Hockey Crown at NCAAMeet

First it was Fritz Crisler's foot-
ball aggregation who made the
trip. The result was a 49-0 victory
over the University of Southern
California in the Rose Bowl clas-
sic and unofficial recognition as
the top grid team in the nation.
Now, three months later, it is
Vic Heyliger's hockey team which
will journey towards the setting
sun for national prominence.
Currently sporting the finest
record ever racked up by a Wol-
verine sextet (16 wins, two loss-
es, and one tie), the 1947-48 edi-
tion of the Michigan skaters
will travel to Colorado Springs,
Colo., in three weeks to partici-
pate in the National Collegiate
Athletic Association's invita-
tion tournament.
Michigan received the bid by
virtue of its record over the other
two mid-western teams, Minne-
sota and Michigan Tech. The
Wolverines battered the Gophers
in three out of four games and
thus far has dropped the Tech-
men in two games. The final two
games of the season will see Michi-
gan pitted against the engineers,
in what has come to be an anti-
Since Michigan Tech edged the
Gophers last Saturday night in a
rough contest, 4-3, to mathemati-
cally give Michigan the represen-
tation, the final games will add
nothing except more figures in the
record book.
In piling up the most re-
spectable season record in his-
tory, Heyliger's fourth Michi-
gan squad has set sevieral new
scoring marks. Gordie McMil-
lan, a Moosejaw, Sask., product,
broke Heyliger's record of total
points scored in three years of
play with his 143 markers.

games, he will smash his own
1945-46 record of total pointage in
one season.
McMillan now has 52 points in
19 games as compared to the 56
hie netted in 23 games two years
back for the standing record.
Again it was Heyliger who lost the
old record, for he had tallied for
42 points in 18 games when Eddie
Lowry was piloting Michigan sex-
And Al Renfrew, who personi-
fies finesse, has also gone over the
century mark in points scored with
his 121 markers. Wally Gacek, who
continues to sear the ice with his
dazzling speed, will be gunning for
the hundred point total in the
next two games, needing only four
points to turn the trick.

Coach Seeks
1-M Fighters
With the I-M Open House box-
ing show coming up March 23,
boxing Coach Lee Setomer is still

Only a scattered few have en-

As the Open House festivities
