COACH CLIFF KEEN
... solemn
Dworsky Hit
By Pro Ruling
Michigan's poor wrestling for-
tunes have caused some specula-
tion about Dan Dworsky's absence
from mat competition.
The answer is-heavyweight
Dworsky is now a professional. By
accepting a bid to play in the post-
season North-South football game,
he gave up his amateur status and
forfeited the right to return to
college wrestling.
In his sophomore year, Dworsky
was considered by Coach Cliff
Keen as the best heavy weight
prospect found in these parts
since Ed (Don) George, letterman
in the mid-twenties and Olympic
star.
The Rose Bowl game, followed
by an asthmatic attack, put the
brakes on his career last year.

A victory-spoiled student body
heard the news of Michigan's
crushing defeat at the hands of
the Illini grappling aggregation
with amazement and disbelief.
Many of them ask this question
"why."
* * *
THE REASONS for the debacle
were explained by a solemn Cliff
Keen, yesterday.
First, the important factor in
every sport, experience, showed
itself as the main reason for the
licking, Keen said.
Five of the sophomores on the
Illini squad were high school state
champions with about three or
four years competition- behind
them. ;
COMPARE THIS to the fact
that the two sophomores wrestling
for Michigan were competing in
their first match in varsity com-
petition.
Second, the Illini grapplers
were in better conditionfor
competition, having started
practice in October as compared
to Michigan's late November
beginning date since Keen serves
double duty as 150'pound foot-
ball coach.
Third, Illinois is a hotbed of
interscholastic wrestling-a sport
which is just beginning to wear
diapers in Michigan.
COMMENTING ON individual
performances, Keen was pleased
with the showing made by John
Powers as 175 and heavyweight
Byron Lasky. Powers, starting his
first varsity bout lost a close de-
cision to Indian Gill Gaumer. Al-
though Gaumer boasted falls in
most of his matches last year, he
was unable to pin Powers.
After a magnificent display of
aggressive and spirited work,

Cinder Card
For the first time since 1947,
Wolverine thinclads will take the
cinders against the University of
California, when they meet the
Golden Bears on April 27 at Ferry
Field in a dual, twilight meet.
The event was scheduled to
complete the second half of a con-
tract that $rought a 71 %-59%
defeat to the Berkeley Campus at
the hands of the Wolverines two
years ago.
THIS WILL be the first twi-
light show that has ever been
held on Ferry Field, and the
Brutus Hamilton coached team
will be no easy go.
California is the favorite to
take thePacific Coast Confer-
ence T.rack title this year and
the score might be tighter than
the last. Before the last con-
test Ken Doherty, then Michi-
gan Track Coach, said that you
could "pick the winner out of a
hat."
A scorching sun brought 87 de-
gree temperatures that par-boiled
the 8,500 spectators and the 20

Michigan runners who made the
transcontinental trek to face the
powerful Bears.
IN SPITE OF the California
April heat Michigan's Chuck Fon-
ville copped a double victory with
53' 1/" shot put and a 148' 7%"
discuss throw.
Then in the face of the hot
cinders herb Barten snapped
up the mile in 4:20.6, and gob-
bled a second in the 880 on the
heels of Chuck Low who finished
in 1:56.1.
Alex Morris came close to col-
lapsing under the hot sun in the
two mile run when in the final
lap he thought he had another to
go. He managed to finish second
to teammate and captain Charley
Birdsall in 9:49.2.
VAL JOHNSON nipped the 220
yard dash from the heart of Cali-
fornia's strength as he flashed
across the tape in 21.8 seconds.
Wolverine Hack Coplin surprised
the Bears with a 15.4 win in the

hadn't run the hurdles in a year.

Boilermakers to only a pair of
free shots in the first nine min-
utes of the period.
In the meantime, the reserves
were doing some shooting on their
own, and had knotted the count
at 27-27.

ONE MINUTE later Purdue
called time out, and McCoy called
in the reserve. The score at this
point stood 30-27.
The capacity crowd of 10,500,
many of them standing, roared
when Purdue started rolling
again with Williams two-poin-
ter at 10:38.
The five minutes, the home
squad had pulled away to a 39-29
lead, and began to stall a minute
and a half later with the score
unchanged.

* * *
utes Purdue held the ball, but,
when he was fouled by McCaslin,
guard Bill Berberian decided to
take the shot and he made it.
The game opened up a little,
and Michigan began hitting on
its long shots.
Mikulich dropped in a field
goal, McCaslin sank another pair,
and the reserve forward followed1
this up with a free shot to close
the gap, 40-36.
But the Wolverines had shot
their bolt, and the Bilermokers
tallied a few more points to sewa
up the game.

Snowstorm
Plays Havoe
With Icemen
By B. S. BROWN
It was pretty evident last Sat-
urday night that the "deep freeze"
treatment Michigan's hockey team
underwentrwhen it was snowed-in
out at Green River, Wyo, last
week didn't improve its playing to
any great extent.
Though the pucksters faced a
formidable foe in the Queens Uni-
versity sextet, there were many
signs that showed the Michigan
lads were quite a bit off form.
* *
AND TO MAKE matters worse,
there was the early-game injury
to Wally Gacek which forced him
to the sidelines for the major part
of the contest.
Two goals were scored in the
final stanza, one by each team,
but the action was slow, with
considerable clearing and
dropping back by both clubs.
Michigan showed in that last
period that it lacked some of the
pep which has pulled many a
game out of the fire. The best
example of the last-minute steam
which has paid off was the goal
scored against the Colorado Col-
lege six on the recent western
swimg.
WITH ONLY seconds remain-
ing in overtime, Al Renfrew came
through with a score that knotted
the count out at the Broadmoor
rink and saved the Wolverine un-
beaten string.
But Saturday night, with only
a one goal margin, the Wolver-
ines couldn't fight their way to
another goal. The playing was
slipshod and the pep was gone.
Only when Queens pulled its
goalie and sent six forwards
on the ice in an attempt to
snarl the mount did Michigan
come through with some stellar
play.
Twice the Canadians came in
on a rush after the puck was
cleared on a face-off and twice
the Wolverines broke up the
charge, stopping the visitors cold
on shots at goal.
IF ANYONE stood out in the
Wolverines' eighth victory of the
season, it was Al Bassey, third
line wingman. Bassey was moved
up to the first line when Gacek
found it impossible to skate and
he showed potentialities which
should make him a star in seasons
to come.
Scoring his first goal of the
season in the middle frame,
Bassey helped the Wolverines
preserve its near perfect record
and the skein which they start-
ed almost a year ago when Min-
nesota toppled its ancient foes
in the last of a four game se-
. ries, 5-4.
It wasn't only his scoring effort
that tabs Bassey as an important
member of the small nucleus coach
Vic Heyliger will be left with at
the end of the current campaign.
Michigan has two more games
this week, with Yale and Prince-
ton, on the road. At stake, in ad-
dition to the unbeaten string, will
be the amazing road record which
the Wolverines have been com-
piling since March 1, 1947. That
date marked the last time in 15
away games that the Wolverines
were defeated on enemy ice.

THE hair that bothered this tortoise didn't run him a race, as
they "tort-us" back in school. His hair just kept getting in
his eyes! Being naturally slow, it took some time for him to
try the Finger-Nail Test. But when he did, brother, did he
move fast for a bottle of Wildroot Cream-Oil--and look at him
now! No more dryness and .loose, ugly dandruff! Wildroot
Cream-Oil keeps his hair well groomed all day long.
What non-alcoholic Wildroot Cream-Oil containing Lanolin
did for Sheedy, it can do for you. So get a bottle or tube today
at the nearest drug or toilet goods counter. And have your
barber give you professional applications. You'll like what
Wildroot Cream-Oil does for your hair-so mock this turtle
and start using it today.
