Gacek Nets Longest Shot
In Colorado Ice History

Wally Gacek's 130-foot shot in
the overtime period against Bos-
ton College in the NCAA hockey
tournament at Colorado Springs
last week was the longest ever
seen at the Broadmoor Ice Pal-
It was even more amaing when
k the officials announced that
goalie Jack McDonald was credit-
ed with the assist. -
'Greatest Team'
Michigan made a huge impres-
sion on the several thousand fans
who saw the Wolverines cop the
national title. John "Snooks"
Kelley, mentor of the Boston Col-
lege sextet, said Michigan was the
greatest collegiate hockey team he
had ever seen......
The Denver scribes used their
imagination and came up with an
appropriate name for Michigan's
Ted Greer-Wally Grant-Wally
Gacek line. They called them the
? "G-whiz Kids."...
t iWhen Gretchen Merrill, Na-
tional Figure Skating titlist, pre-
sented the NCAA trophy to Con-
nie Hill, she added a kiss for meas-
ure. Connie is still waiting for the
photographic evidence of the os-
culatory proceedings to arrive...
Staunch Fan
The coach of the Olympic Fig-
ure Skating teem was at the
Broadmoor and told Bob Wells, a
staunch Michigan fan who fol-
lowed the squad to the Rocky
Mountain tourney, that Faris
Nourse, who will be competing in
the junior class of the Nationals
next week, was the finest prospect
he had seen in years. Faris was
Michigan's number one rooter....
Connie Hill had the scribblers
inw the press box roaring when he
skated over to start his fourth
penalty in the B. C. game. He met
Eagle Coach Kelley at the door of
r the sinners' domain and said,
'"uuvrez la porte, s'il vous plait."
'Snooks" looked at him in amaze-
ment and answered, 'I don't un-
derstand this Canadian lingo." ...
Ross Smith, who spent more
minutes in the penalty box than
any other man during the past
season, was tagged by the refs in
the first game. He looked around
wonderingly and finally yelled,
"Where is the box?" Someone be-
gan to sing, "Show me the way to
go home. ... . '
Unsung Heroes
Tom Bayless and Carl Isaacson,
unsung manager and trainer of

the 1948 hockey champs, were
called the "greatest ever" by
Coach Vic Heyliger. The two boys
contributed in no small part to
the Wolverines' 20 victories and
national crown. . . . . .
Heyliger received a tremendous
ovation at the beginning of the
third period of play in the Dart-
mouth tilt, of which he can be
eternally proud....
The Michigan pilot took a dozen
and a half men and moulded them
into the finest hockey aggregation
ever to take to the ice in Wolver-
ine history.
Two Men Lost
Only Ted Greer and Bill Jacob-
son will be missing next season
when the Maize and Blue will be
out to defend its coveted crown.
Both graduate and played their
last game in the tourney. ..
"Ike" Brumm, wingman Len
Brumm's father, was another of
the Michigan followers at :the
tourney. He came all the way from
Marquette, Michigan....
"Handy Andy" Anderson, Uni-
versity transportation official, also
made tht trip to Colorado. Togeth-
er with Bob Wells, he kept the
Michigan players in high spirits.
Jokesters both. . .
Meets Navajo
Bob met an old Navajo on one
of the sightseeing tours and gave
him a typical Wells greeting.
"Hiyah, Chiefy, old boy. How the
heck you doing?" Bob asked the
' authentic" Navajo to come to
the game in full regalia as good
luck for Michigan.....
When the Indian failed to show,
Bob decided that either his squaw
refused to let him out for the eve-
ning or his 1948 convertible had
broken down. ....
All in all, it was a great western
jaunt. Michigan now reigns as the
official national champs and the
unofficial international titlists.
You know the old song, "Hail to
the victors......" etc.

Matt Mann and his Wolverine swimmers appeared to be on their
way to recapturing their second title of the year as they took a com-
manding 11-point lead over defending titlists. Ohio State as the 25th
annual NCAA Clunipionships reached the half-way mark last night.k
Scoring in every event, the Maize and Blue mermen ran up 29
points to the 18 total for the Buckeyes. The men of Mike Peppe gar-;
nered those points in only two events, taking first, second and fourth in
the diving finals and a lirst place -

Rule Changes
Set for Cagcers
NEW YORK, March 26-(/P)-
The National Basketball Commit-
tee adopted four more rules
changes in its closing session to-
day to make a total of eight new
regulations which wih be inserted
into the 1948-1949 rule book.
The rules changes are:
1. The period of time when
the clock is to be stopped every
time the ball becomes dead will
bL reduced from the last three
minutes oi a college game to the
last two minutes.
2. A foul committed during a
dead ball will remain the same
except one which occurs on the
throw-in from the outside. This
foul will be considered a per-
sonal instead of a technical as
this year.
3. No team will be allowed to
line up three or mor ' players in
adjacent positions on any re-
straining line when taking the
ball on the outside. It must al-
loV th:defensive playes room
to get in between.
4. Any player taken out dur-
ong a time out period can return
be,'ore play has teen resumed.

Cream of Big Nine
The best the Big Nine has to

Michigan will be on hand to make
things interesting.
Wolverine Charlie Fonville may
well steal the show right out from
under the noses of the relayers,
however, as he shoots for his own
world's indoor mark which was
set way back at the Michigan
State dual meet.
If the slender shot-putter suc-
