smashing. twin victory over Chi-
cago and Wisconsin on february
28th, brings its 6-2 record to the
Windy City today for the Big Nine
Nine teams will compete in the
show-down to be held at Navy Pier
this evening. Six of the clubs will
be gunning for Conference laurels,
while three independents will vie
for crowns in the open division.
Rated as a cellar-entry in pre-
season dope, Newt Loken's Wol-
verine charges dumped two of the
hottest clubs in the mid-west, Chi-

Since that near-disaster for the
Illini, the Wolverines have caused
Conference mentors plenty of
sleepless nights with their spec-
tacular rise to a place of authority
in the gym world.
The Michigan seige will again
be led by Co-captains Glenn Neff
and Tommy Tillman. Rounding
out the roster will be Bob Wil-
loughby, Bob Schoendube, Dick
Fashbaugh, Johnny Allred, Fred
Butt, and Dave Lake.
Minnesota, defending champi-
ons, are favored to repeat this
year. Illinois, strengthened by the
return of former luminaries from
the 1942 NCAA Championship out-
fit, could possibly steal the crown
from the Gophers.
Michigan enters the meet as a
dark-horse. If the Wolverines can
cop a 1-2 on the trampoline, they
stand a good chance of bringing

An interesting sidelight in the

the duel between the Wolverine

be seeking to regain a bit of the
prestige he lost when Barten de-

Val Johnson, author of a sensa-

IOWA CITY, Ia., March 12-
The dazzling 300-yard medley trio
of Harry Holiday, Bob Sohl and
Bill Kogen shot Michigan hopes
for a Big Nine crown skyward to-
night as they added a precious ten
points for first place to give the
Wolverines a 37-21 edge over Ohio
State at the halfway point of the
Western Conference champion-
Individual winners for Michigan

Michigan to capture the crown

Keith Carter of Purdue amazed
the screaming crowd as the meet

finals of the 50-yard freestyle.

The ex-GI's, George Chiames
and Al Wahl, two top-ranking
gridiron candidates, returned to
the Wolverines campus this se-
mester with distinguished ath-
letic records picked up during
their 18-month Army stretch.
As freshmen, they both played
for Coach Fritz Crisler's 1945 pig-
skin squad. Chiames, a quick-
thinking quarterback, also served
as the team's place-kicker after
Joe Ponsetto was injured in mid-
season. That year, the 200-pound
Wahl saw limited duty at the tac-
kle post due to a leg injury.
The two ballplayers formed a
Damon and Pythias relationship
here, even enlisting together in the
Army on Sept. 3, 1946.
They were shipped to Camp Lee,
Va., where they immediately
gained first-string assignments on
the post's football team that
copped the Middle Atlantic Serv-
Chiames and Wahl were later
sent to different posts in Ger-
many. Nothing was able to stop
them from keeping in top physi-
Employed Crisler Tricks
Employing Crisler's single-wing
system, the 185-pound Chiames
served as player-coach of the Vi-
enna Area Command eleven that
took runner-up honors in a seven-
team league race in Europe.
Meanwhile, Wahl spent most of
his leisure time acquainting him-
self with the rudiments of box-
ing. His efforts were rewarded as
he went on to cop the Golden
Gloves Heavyweight title of the

Michigan's greatest hockey ag-
gregation in history has Boston
College as its first opponent in the
NCAA tournament next week at
the Colorado Springs' Broadmoor
Taking the New England League
championship last week by virtue
of their 6-4 win over an under-
manned Northeastern sextet, the
Eagles received the title bid and'
will make the western trip in an
attempt to grab national fame.
Head Coach John J. Kelley, who
graduated from the Chestnut Hill
school in 1938, will have all but
three of his last year's winning
squad on hand for the battle
with the Wolverines.
Warren Lewis, sophomore cen-
ter, heads the list of able lines-
men. In 19 games last year he
picked up 19 goals and 20 assists
for a 39 point total.
Bernard Burke, Newton, Mass.,
will be in the nets for the Eagles
and will have an able spare, Nor-
man Daly, ready to replace him in
case of injury. Kelley will have
four defensemen available for
duty, foremost among them 200-
pound Ed Songin, who placed on
the All-New England team last
year as a freshman.
Songin scored 12 goals and a
like number of assists last season
as he alternated on the forward
wall. John Gallagher, Vern Hard-
ing and Joe McCusker all saw
action with last year's team and
are seasoned defensemen.
Mason High Scorer
Co-captains Bob Mason and
John Gallagher team with Jack
McIntyre on the starting line and
provides B.C. with the greater part
of its scoring power. Mason led
the scoring for Terrier six in the
past season-in one game he
netted six goals and one assist.
John Corcoran, Walter Delorey,
and Giles Threadgold-all experi-
enced players-make up the sec-
ond forward unit, and John Mah-
ler, a newcomer to the team, is
the single offensive spare.

Kelley, who in the ii seasons
preceding the recently - flldled
eiinpaign had piloted his HubI
City teams to 97 wins against 431
losses, led his latest sextet throughI
the most successful year in B.C.
history. In 19 games the Eagles
came out on the winning side of
the ledger 17 times.
