M' Cagers Face Full Vacation Schedule

By B. S. BROWNI
Vic Heyliger, Michigan's top-
notch hockey pilot, reaped the
fruits of his own efforts out at
Colorado Springs last March.
It was mainly through the per-
sistence of the former Wolverine
puckster that the National Col-
legiate Athletic Association recog-
nized hockey and instituted the
tournament which would decide
the national champion of the ice
sport.
And when the first playoff
rolled around last year, Hey-
lger took his twice-beaten sex-
tet west to meet the number one
squads of the east and far-west
for the crown.
In the very shadows of Pikes
Peak, the Wolverines played Bost-
on College and Dartmouth on suc-
cessive evenings, winning both
contests, 6-4 and 8-4.
Though Dartmouth had beat-
en the Eagles in regular season
play, the Indians proved to be
less trouble to the Michigan
squad than their brethren from
the Hub., With one minute to

play in the Boston contest,
Michigan was leading the Eag-
les, 4-3.
John "Snooks" Kelley, the Bos-
ton mentor, pulled his goalie and
sent six forwards on the ice in an
attempt to score and his strategy
paid off. The Bostonites tied the
score at four-all, with less than
20 seconds to play.
But in the overtime period,S
Michigan showed its tremend-
ous come-back ability and went
ahead 5-4 on a beautifully exe-
cuted play.
Again with one minute left to
play, Kelley resorted to the power
technique and pulled his goalie.
But this time the strategy back-
fired. Jack McDonald, Michigan
goalie, made a smart save on a
Boston shot and cleared the puck
to Wally Gacek who was standing
near the Wolverine nets.
Gacek then came through with
an amazing bit of play. He grab-
bed the puck, took a quick glance
at the gaping Boston nets, and
fired an accurate 140-foot shot for
the insurance marker.

By HERB MUNZEL
As a high school student he was
unable to earn an athletic letter
. . . in intercollegiate competition
he was one of the two men in the
history of the University of Chi-
cago to earn 9 letters in football,
baseball, and basketball . . . as a
college coach, he was voted the
"Coach of the Year" for 1947.
Herbert Orin (Fritz) Crisler,
whose career has been one of
steady improvement and contin-
ued success, retired last spring as
head football coach at the Uni-
versity of Michigan. He continues
as the Director of Athletics, a po-
sition which he has held since
succeeding the late Fielding H.
Yost in 1941.
SINCE EITHER one of these
jobs involves much mental strain,
it must certainly have been some
relief to Crisler to turn over the
football reins to Bennie Ooster-
baan. Crisler is now devoting all
his time to the big job of expand-
ing the University's athletic pro-
gram.
In his ten years of brilliant
head coaching of Michigan
football squads, Crisler com-
piled a very outstanding record.
His teams have won 71 games,
lost 16 with 3 ending in ties.
During that time they have col-
lected a total of 2234 points
while holding the opposition to
732.
Crisler, born in Earlville, Illinois
in 1899, moved with his family to
Minnesota while still in high
school. Offered an academic schol-
arship, he attended the University
of Chicago, where he received his
nickname "Fritz." He was named
after the famed violinist Fritz
Kreisler by his coach Amos Alonzo
Stagg.
AFTER ENDING his under-
graduate days at Chicago, where
he was tops both athletically and
academically, barely missing Phi
Beta Kappa, Crisler remained
from 1922 until 1930 as Stagg's as-
sistant.
From Chicago he moved as
athletic director and head coach
to the University of Minnesota,
where he stayed for two sea-
sons and made a good record.
He was then called to Princeton
as head coach, where his teams
were unbeaten in two of the three
seasons he was there.
Since coming to Michigan in
DO YOU KNOW THAT ... In the
fourteen years that the "Coach
of the Year" award has been
given, Michigan is the only
school that has had two of its
coaches honored.

1938, Crisler has been noted for
producing offensive minded teams.
The single wing has been used
most extensively with a smatter-
ing of "T" formation plays mak-
ing things all the more interesting
for the opposing players and the
spectators.
Many offers have been made to
Crisler to leave his post at the Un-
iversity, but so far he has declined
all of them, preferring to remain
here as on; of the nation's top ad-
ministrators in his field..

LatY a'' ' a mnSet Pace for '49 Squad

By CY CARLTON
Coach Cliff Keen's "forty-nin-
ers" have a great tradition to up-
hold.
It's one set by last year's wres-
tlers who recovered from late sea-
son doldrums to tie for second
place in the Western Conference
standings, a scant point behind
champion Purdue.
LAST YEAR'S Wolverine wres-
tling aggregation started off the
season in winning style. Sparked
by Captain Bob Betzig, they took
three out of their four Conference
tussles, walloping Northwestern
and Minnesota, nipping future
championship holder, Purdue, 18-
13, and dropping a close contest
to Illinois, 16-12.
The next week, the Wolver-
ines were overpowered -by a
strong, defending' champion
Iowa, mat squad. Weakened by
the loss of Dan Dworsky in the
heavyweight division, the grap-
plers were no match for the
Iowans. The score, 19-9, was an
indication of the game Keen-
men.
The grapplers then journeyed to
Bloomington where they lost a
close encounter to the Hoosiers,
14-13. Bob Betzig gained the only
fall of the meet, when he pinned
his opponent in 2:40 of the first
period.

THE NEXT WEEK again proved
fruitless for the Keenmen. They
were defeated by an excellent
Michigan State squad with three
National Collegiate champions in
their lineup, 19-8.
The next opponent to come
up against the Maize and Blue
matmen was Ohio State. This
match resulted in a 14-14 tie
and kept the Wolverine Big
Nine dual meet record at an
even .500 as the dual season
ended.
All eyes in the wrestling worldl
tehn turned to Champaign, Illi-
nois, where the Western Confer-
ence championships were being
held. Michigan was overlooked in
the pre-meet prognostications. All
eyes were on Purdue's powerful
Boilermakers and the Iowa Hawk-
eyes.
BUT THE MICHIGAN spirit is
not a tangible thing. Rising above
the also-rans, Michigan tied for
second place with Illinois andl
Iowa.
Jim Smith, George Curtis, and
the ever-reliable Betzig starred in
the amazing Wolverine upsurge,
Smith taking the Conference 136-
pound crown and Curtis and Bet-
zig taking seconds in the 145- and
155-pound divisions.

Meet Three Foes
On Western Trip
By ROG GOELTZ
Although Friday will witness
the homeward trek of Michigan's
student body, the cagers of Ernie
McCoy will be on hand during the
Xmas vacation to round out their
pre-Big Nine games.
The Wolverines are scheduled
to meet four schools before classes
resume on Jan. 3, facing Colorado,
Stanford, Santa Clara and Toledo
Universities.
ALL FOUR games will be
played on the road. The Wolver-
ines swing west opening their va-
cation stand at Boulder, Colo-
rado on December 17.
Two West Coast schools are
scheduled for successive nights
when Michigan plays the Stan-
ford Indians and Santa Clara
Broncos on December 20 and 21.
Coach ErnierMcCoy will face
Toledo in a return engagement
while most Michigan followers are
Spectators at the Michigan-
Pittsburgh basketball game to-
morrow night will get a double
treat when Coach Newt Lok-
en's gymnasts show their
wares on the trampoline in a
halftime exhibition.
The bouncers include Bob
Schoendube, national 'tramp'
champ last season, Edsel 'Tex'
Buchanan, who is pressing
Schoendube in intrasquad
meets this season, Gordon Lev-
enson, Tom Tillman, Dave
Lake and Bob Willoughby.
shaking off the effects of New
Year's Eve when the Wolverines
go to Toledo on January 1.
THE WOLVERINES will use
these four games to develop their
floor work and ball handling abil-
ity in preparation for the West-
ern Conference opener on Jan. 8
against the "Golden Gophers" of
Minnesotaat Minneapolis.
DO YOU KNOW THAT ... Since
Jim Hunt came to Michigan as
a trainer, Michigan has not lost
a football game.

The appearance of the Wol-
verines against the two coast
teams will be the first time that
Michigan has played these
schools in recent years and the
first time that a coast team has
failed to make a trip to Ann
Arbor.
Last year the Trojans of USC
made the journey to Yost Field
House and bowed before a cham-
pionship bound Wolverine quintet
51-38.
COACH ERNIE McCOY will
take twelve players on the West-
ern trip. Bill Roberts, Mack Su-
prunowicz, Pete Elliott, Boyd Mc-
Caslin, and Bob Harrison are list-
ed as probable starters for the
Wolverines. The remainder of the
twelve will come from the strong

Michigan reserve list paced by
Hal Morrill, Irv Wisniewski and
Bill Mikulich.
When the students come back
to their classes, they will find
the Wolverines cage quintet set
to launch its defense of its Big
Nine cage title against Minne-
sota, at Minneapolis.
This game will find Michigan
going against a team coached by
the man who gave the Wolverines
their first Western Conference
title in 21 years, Ozzie. Cowles.
DO YOU KNOW THAT .. . Army
and Cornell are the only schools
in the country whose teams have
better records against Mich-
igan elevens than Michigan has
against them.
