Michigan's national champion-
ship hockey team will open the
1948-49 puck season December 2,
meeting the Detroit Red Wings in
an exhibition game at the Coli-
seum.
The tilt, which has become an
annual affair, will find many of
last year's regulars back in ac-
tion for Coach Vic Heyliger, who
is looking forward to another suc-
cessful season at the helm.
MICHIGAN "defeated" the
Wings last year, 9-7, in the season
K opener, with the able assistance of
Wing goalie Harry Lumley and the
Detroit first line. The four Motor
r City stars performed for the Maize
and Blue, as is the tradition in
the exhibitions.
But the contest proved to be
more than just a show for the
fans. Jack Adams, Red Wing
manager, and several of the De-
troit players praised the Mich-
igan squad and predicted great
things for the team during the
regular season.
And their comments proved ac-
curate. In the regular season, the
Wolverines won 18 games while
only losing two. In addition, Hey-

liger's charges defeated the Uni-
versity of Toronto for the first
time in the history of the long
rivalry between the two schools.

RECEIVING THE BID to the
NCAA hockey tournament, the
first to be held in the U.S., Mich-
igan racked up two consecutive
wins over Boston College and
Dartmouth, 6-4, and 8-4, to grab
the national crown.
With only .two players from
last year's aggregation gone,
Heyliger can look ahead to an-
other winning season and per-
haps the retention of the na-
tional title.
The Michigan mentor intends
to keep his first line of Gordie
McMillan, who has scored over

150 points in three years of varsity
play for a new Wolverine record,
Wally Gacek, who netted 40 points
last year, and Al Renfrew, the new
captain of the puck squad.
WALLY GRANT, Neil Celley
and Gil Burford will make up the
second line. Sam Stedman, Len
Brumm, Al Massey and Bob Flem-
ing are the others competing for
starting line positions.
On defense, Heyliger has three
seasoned veterans in Ross Smith,
Connie Hill and Dick Starrak.
Their work in breaking up the
rushes of the opposition was a
huge factor in Michigan's success
last year.
In the nets, the ice pilot, who is
starting his fifth year as hockey
coach at Michigan, has Jack Mac-
Donald, who tended the crease
last year, and Paul Milanowski,
who saw limited a'ction in the sec-
ond half of the '47-'48 campaign.

Diminutive Dom Tomasi who
captained Michigan's gridders to a
second straight undefeated season
from his guard position was
named the team's most valuable
player by unanimous vote yester-
day.
Tomasi thus became the first
lineman to win the most valuable
award since 1942 when the title
went to a young tackle who was
destined for All-American honors
that year.

. HIS NAME was Albert Wistert.
His older brother Alvin was elect-
ed Tuesday to succeed Tomasi as
Captain of the 1949 grid squad.
For Tomasi the award came
only a day after he had been
named to a first string guard
position on the All-Big Nine
team, selected by the conference
grid coaches.
But winning a spot on an All-
Conference team was nothing new

Over twenty gymnast aspirants
are working out at the IM build-
ing these days in preparation for
the winter season.
COACH NEWT LOKEN showed
his charges movies yesterday of
the National AAU Gymnastics
Meet which was held last year at
Penn State. The remainder of the
session was spent on work on the
parallel bars, the trampoline, and
the flying rings.
Last week the team participated
in the first of three intrasquad
contests. The results indicate
strength in the trampoline and
flying rings events and weakness
on the parallel bars and the side
horse.
BOB WILLOUGHBY and Capt.
IDick Fashbaugh tied for honors in
the high bar event, each taking
150 judges points.
Four sophomores stood out in
the other events. Jeff Knight took
first place on the side horse, and

Dave Clark was top man on the
flying rings.
ED BUTCIIANAN, who took
fourth place on the trampoline in
last year's AAU competition, won
that event. Pete Barthell tallied
the most points in tumbling and
tied freshman Conrad Ettl for
first on the parallel bars.
Gymnastic fans on campus will
have an opportunity to 'see the
best performers in the Conference
this year. Two more intrasquad
games are planned for Dec. 2 and

Dec. 9, while the regular home
schedule includes meets with Chi-
cago, Ohio State, and Wisconsin.
The Big Nine championship meet
will be held here March 26.
Coach Loken says that the pop-
ular half-time gymnastic demon-
strations will be given again this
year at home basketball games. All
regular meets will take place in
the main gym of the IM building.

Wolverine Fencers Upset Favorites

Further reason to make fencing
a varsity sport was given last Sat-
urday when the Scimitar Fencing
Club, unofficially representing
Michigan, came through with an
unexpected victory to capture the
Michigan Three Weapon Fencing
title.
* * *
THE WOLVERINES, with play-
ing coach Ed Micllef, Norm Bar-
nett and Pete Young dueling, de-
feated trios from Wayne, Univer-
sity of Detroit and Lawrence Tech

in the opening matches of the
tourney, gaining a three-way tie
for first place with the Grosse
Point Sword Club and the Salle
De Tuscan Club of Detroit.
In the playoffs, the underrated
Wolverines vanquished the Grosse
Pointers and defeated Salle De
Tuscan two matches to one. Ed
Micllef's 2-1 victory over How-
ard Hayden was the deciding win.
* *
THE OTHER Michigan victory
in the De Tuscan playoff was pro-

vided by Pete Young who out-
pointed Byron Kreiger, considered
by many the top fencer in the
state, 5-4.
Because of the squad's inevperi-
ence, fencing experts considered
the chances of the Wolverines as
nil when the tournament opened.
Grosse Pointe and De Tuscan were
the favorites.
The next fencing tournament
will be held at the Intramural
Building, Dec. 11. A large turn-
out will do much toward gaining
varsity recognition for this sport.

record includes the present string
of 23 straight wins the Maize and
Blue has piled up.
Since Michigan inaugurated
the two-team system last year
Tomasi has seen most of his
service on the offensive unit but
the 180-pound Dom has seen
occasional service in defensive
capacity.
Tomasi is in distinguished com-
panyeas Michigan's most valuable
player. He succeeds All-American
halfback Bump Elliott who also
won the Chicago Tribune trophy
as the most valuable in the West-
ern Conference.
THE 1946 AWARD went to an-
other All-American, halfback Bobl
Chappuis, who is now tossing the
pigskin for the Brooklyn Dodgers
and who just recently set an all-
time passing record for profes-
sional football.
Other familiar names listed
among past winners of most val-
uable honrs include Don Lund,
1944; Bob Wiese, 1943; halfbackI
Tom Harmon in 1939 and 1940
and guard Ralph Heikkinen inj
1937 and 1938.

Great swimmers come to Michi-
gan.
Not only do they come here to
swim for the University under the
tutelage of Mr. Swim himself, the
inimitable Matt Mann, but they
come here to compete against the
individual Wolverines.
And when you beat a Michi-
gan swimmer, you are in the
big time, because, year in and
year out, Wolverine swimmers
are among the best in the land.
Tomski, Kirar, Haynie, Holi-
day, Barker, Fries, Welsh, Skin-
ner, Kiefer; they are some of the
Michigan swimmers who have pro-
vided the challenge for the na-
tion's top collegiate swimmers
throughout the year.
And the challenge is here this
year. Although several outstand-
ing performers on last year's team
are gone, the over-all picture is
one of balance, depth, and power.
Matt Mann III, Gus Stager,
Dick Weinberg and Bob Sohl
are all back and they're the boys
that everyone will be trying to
defeat.

In the same vein, the Michigan
swimming team itself has quite a
reputation to uphold. Former
Wolverine natators have won fif-
teen Western Conference Cham-
pionships and swept to thirteen
NCAA titles since 1927.
Last year's record was one of
the greatest ever posted by a
Michigan team. The Wolverines
swept through eleven opponents
in the season's dual meets,
dropped OSU for the first time
since 1944, and culminated the
season by winning both the Big
Nine and NCAA Champion-
ships, finishing second in the
AAU meet at New Haven.
Another Wolverine swimming
team is about to begin defense of
its Big Nine and National Title,
while the rest of collegiate swim-
ming maps its plans to sink Michi-
gan in late season title meets.
As a team and individually,
Michigan again provides a chal-
lenge to the rest of the nation's
swimmers.
