PRICE FIVE CENTS
By B. S. BROWN
(Daily Sports Editor)
A sub-committee of the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics has balked at a proposal by
Herbert 0. (Fritz) Crisler, Mich-
igan Athletic Director, which
would have increased the seating
capacity of the Michigan Stadium
from 86,000 to 125,000.
A SPOKESMAN for the com-
mittee explained that the alumni
response to the project did not
warrant the approval of Crisler's
The athletic directo, who
piloted Michigan's 1948 Rose
Bowl aggregation to a smashing
49-0 triumph before resigning
as bead grid coach, had sug-
gested that the enlargement of
the stadium be financed by a
five-year advance sale of season
Crisler's plans called for the
construction of an upper deck, but
he told the board that it was
doubtful if all the seats which
would have been built under the
proposed plan could have been
sold that far in advance.
The Michigan Stadium is at
present the largest collegiate bowl
in the country.
THE COMMITTEE recommend-
ed that Crisler's other proposals
for expansion of athiletic facili-
ties be given the "green light."
They include a new club house
for the golf course, a women's
gym and swimming pool, new
baseball stands, and the erec-
tion of either a combination
hockey-basketball plant or ex-
pansion of seating capacities of
Yost Field House and the Coli-
Both the Coliseum and the base-
ball stands have long been the
object of criticism because of their
poor. condition and inadequate
seating while the field house is no
longer able to accommodate a
campus of 20,000.

All But Die
On 'M' Defense
By PRES HOLMES
The man who gave the Wol-
verines the Conference basketball
crown a year ago took it away
from them last night.
Coach Osborne B. Cowles' Gold-
en Gophers put Michigan out of
the title race by handing the
Maize and Blue quintet 'a 54-47
loss on the Yost Field House court.
ONE OF THE gratifying fac-
tors of the loss, however, was the
performance of sophomore center
Leo VanderKuy. Playing opposite
Jim McIntyre who towers over
him by at least five inches, Lee
had the Gopher center well under
control and played a great game
offensively too, scoring 12 points.
Leo's backboard play and re-
bounding was amazing consider-
ing the fact that he was working
in McIntyre's shadow. Cowles
commended VanderKuy after
the game, saying that "He
played a good, quick game and
did very fine work under the
Michigan's Bob Harrison and
Bud Grant of Minnesota shared
the top scoring honors for the
night, each racking up 15 points.
THE TWO TEAMS squared off
and played an "eye for an eye"
game throughout three-quarters of
the first half. Michigan was first
to dent the net when Van'derNy
hooked a shot by McIntyre.
Four minutes later the score
was tied at six-all and at the
halfway mark everything was
on even terms with ten points
Minnesota held a two-point ad-
vantage with five minutes to go
and then opened up with three
quick baskets while Harrison
pumped in one to make the score
at halftime 24-18 in favor of the
* * *
FROM THEN ON Michigan was
never really in the game as far
as the scoring column was con-
cerned. The spirit and determina-
tion was there but Minnesota kept
edging farther into the lead, and
at one point led by 13 points.
A great factor in accounting
for Michigan's loss was the al-
most complete collapse of the
foul shooting department. The
Wolverines made only seven out
of 18 attempts.
Minnesota made only one more
shot from the field than did the
Wolverines. The Gophers made 21
of 65 attempts for a 32.3 percent-
age, while Michigan was swishing
20 out of 74 for a 27 per cent aver-
THE BIG DIFFERENCE there-
fore, was in the number of fouls
made. Michigan failed to cash in
on its charity tosses, but the
Gophers made 12 out of 17 at-
tempts which stretched their mar-
gin of victory.
Contrary to expectations the
Gophers presented a well-bal-
anced offense rather than the
"two-man" team of McIntyre
and Skoog. Four men on the
