Michigan To Test Strength,
In Annual Game with Pros
Maize and Blue Bolstered by 12 Veterans;
MacDonald To Tend Goal for Detroiters

<j\..

By B. S. BROWN
Hockey coach Vic Heyliger will
unveil his fifth Michigan puck
squad tonight at the Coliseum in
an exhibition match with the De-
troit Red Wings.
Face-off is 8:00 p.m.
The Wolverines, who copped the
national crown at Colorado
Springs last March, have 12 let-
termen returning from the 1947-
48 team.
They include Gordie McMil-
lan, who holds the Michigan
record for total scoring, Wally
Gacek, who scored 46 points
during the regular season last
year, and Captain Al Renfrew,
who is Michigan's second high-
est scorer for a three year pe-
riod with 125 markers.
This trio will make up Heylig-
er's first line. The second for-
ward wall includes two veteran
players, one of whom is returning
to Michigan after two years in
service.
Wally Grant played the sec-
ond half of last season following
his discharge from service, but
his teammate on the 1945
squad, Neil Celley waited until
this semester to come back. Gil
Burford, of Windsor, rounds out
this second line.
On the third line, Heyliger will
use Sam Stedman, another three
year veteran, Len Brumm, who
played varsity hockey last year,
and Al Bassey, a newcomer.
On defense, the Wolverine
pilot has three seasoned play-
ers and a newcomer who has
shown promise in practice ses-
sions. Connie Hill, Ross Smith
and Dick Starrak will be aided
this year by Bill Fleming, who
has moved up from last year's
freshman team.
Heyliger indicated that he will

B. S. BROWN, Night Editor
split up the tremendous duo of
Hill and Smith to form two defen-
sive units. Hill will play with
Fleming while Smith will team up
with Starrak.
In last year's exhibition, with
wing goalie Harry Lumley in the
Michigan nets and the Detroit
first line wearing the Maize and
Blue in the final two periods,
the Wolverines, with the skilled
assistance, came out on the top
in the free scoring fray, 9-7.
And the system will be the
same tonight. Lumley will again
tend the nets for Michigan while
Jack MacDonald moves across ice
to the Wing goal and the Detroit
first line will alternate with Mich-
igan's in the second and third pe-
riods.
Heyliger said last night that
he would start Grant, Burford,
and Celley on the line and
Smith and Starrak. on defense.
The annual game, which gives
the Michigan coach an idea of the
future of his team, will precede
the season opener by only four
days. Monday night the Wolver-
ines will journey south to take
on the Toledo Mercury team of
the Amateur Hockey League.
That game will be the first of
23 for the Wolverines.

Michigan State will bring back
only two of last year's regulars
when its cagers come here Satur-
day night to open the Wolverines'
schedule, but the Maize and Blue
will find it rough going against
this band of determined Spartans.
The two returning starters from

last year's squad are Bill Rap-
chak, steady-playing, six-foot-
one-inch forward, and Hugh Daw-
son, who also stands one inch
above the six-foot mark and
handles one of the guard posi-
tions.
THESE TWO, however, will
have plenty of help from many of
last year's substitutes who've
shown a lot of improvement in
practice so far.
At the other forward post, for
instance, is John Granack, an
understudy to Bob Geahan lastj
year. 3
Granack showed how much he1
had improved in the Spartans'

game for this night.
double win over Hillsdale and
Alma Monday night.
HE PLAYED in the nightcap
against Alma, which saw his 18
points lead in the 46-33 Michigan
State triumph.
In the first game, a six-foot
four-inch center, Ray Steffin,
showed that the starting pivot-
man, Jack Wulf, would have a
fight on his hands to hang on
to his position.

In that game, Steffins pumped
22 points through the hoop to lead
all scorers for the night. This
Flint boy is only a sophomore and
is sure to give Spartan opponents
plenty of headaches for a long
time to come.
WULF IS JUST "our inches
short of an even seven feet, and
can put his tremendous height
advantage to good use. Last year
he understudied Bob Brannum,
who made the All-American pivot
post while playing for Kentucky
in 1944.
Teaming with Dawson at the
guard slot will be six-foot two-
inch Robert Robbins.
Robbins was a forward on last
year's Spartan five, but lack of
material at the defensive posi-
tions has forced Coach Ben Van
Alstyne to switch him.
These will be the men to watch
when MSC takes the floor Satur-
day night.
