Mack Suprunowicz, cagey for-
ward who has paced the Michigan
basketball squad in Conference
scoring for the last three years,
was the unanimous choice of his
teammates, in a meeting held yes-
terday afternoon, to captain the
1949-50 team.
Supey entered Michigan in the
fall of 1946 and was eligible to play
basketball under the Conference
ruling in effect then, which al-
lowed freshmen to compete in ath-
THAT SEASON he dumped in
163 points in Big Nine play., The
following year he scored 145
points, and this season, even
though his play was erratic from
one game to the next, piled up 178
counters to bring his three-year
total to 486 points in Conference
He seems certain to break
Michigan's old record since he
has another season, and has al-
most surpassed the mark now.
He has already put his name
down in the Michigan record books'
with his 28 points in one game,
scored this season against Purdue,
February 21.
THE ELECTION was held yes-
terday just before this season's ten
letter-winners had their official'
1948-49 team picture taken. In
uniform for the first time since'
January 29 was this year's captain,'
Bill Roberts, who was one of the
first to congratulate Supey.
Roberts appeared for the last

official meeting of this year's
squad on "wooden legs." He was
released from University hospi-
tal just last Wednesday after
the operation on his knee, and
bemoaned the fact that he has
to walk on crutches for about
another week.
He was one of half of the var-
sity letter winners who will not be
back next year. Pete Elliott, Bob
Harrison, Bill Mikulich, and Boyd
McCaslin all wore a Michigan bas-
ketball uniform yesterday for the
last time.

According to the schedule,
Michigan's indoor track season is
And, as far as the team is con-
cerned, it is. From now until April
27, when the outdoor season opens
against California, the team faces
a stiff program of conditioning for
the change from the small indoor
track to'the 440-yard outdoor oval.
* * *
BUT FOR a few individuals on
the squad, the indoor season still
has a few meets to go. Several in-
vitational and relay meets have
attracted some of the Wolverines'
more outstanding talent.
Coach Don Canham has en-
tered five men in the Knights of
Columbus games Friday at the
Cleveland Arena. Tom Dolan,
who just last Saturday annexed
the Illinois Tech Relays' high
jump title, will vie for similar
honors at Cleveland.
The other four-fifths of the
team, Garth Kirkendall, Justin
Williams, John Lindquist, and Bob
Thomason, are entered as a two-
mile relay team. This is the same
quartet that was nosed out of first
place by Illinois at the Illinois
Tech meet.
* *.*
ILLINOIS, who won in 7:53.5,
has entered in the K of C meet at
Cleveland, and the Wolverines will
get another crack at them.
The most promising half-
miler on the Wolverine relay
quartet is Lindquist, who has
been showing steady improve-

ment since his first competitive
80-yard race earlier this sea-
Lindquist turned in his fastest
time at Chicago Saturday when he
placed third in the open 880-yard
run in 1:57, beating out teammate
MICHIGAN WILL be represent-
ed by a one-man team at the Chi-
cago Daily News Relays Saturday.
Pole vaulter Ed Ulvestad will face
some of the nation's top talent in
this event.
A few of the pole vaulters ex-
pected at Chicago are the West-
ern Conference co-champs, Don
Laz of Illinois, Harry Cooper of
Minnesota, and Tom Bennett of
Wisconsin. Laz also was winner
of the MSC Relays title and the
Illinois Tech crown.
Besides having another chance
to upset Laz, who has beaten him
three times this year, Ulvestad has
an added interest in the meet:
Chicago is his home town.
Canham also announced the
probability that a small group will
represent Michigan at the Purdue
Relays a week from Saturday.
Dolan, Ulvestad, and Thomason
have been entered in this meet,
along with a sprint medley relay
team and a two-mile team.
All junior varsity and fresh-
man basketball award winners
are asked to report to Henry
Hatch at Yost Field House to
be measured for their award

Some simple and yet important
little items will make this Satur-
day's State Intercollegiate Three
Weapon Championships to be held
at the Intramural Building one of
the more interesting sword con-
tests for spectators in a long time.
For the first time in the memory
of many sword "old timers," an in-
structive exhibition will be given.
* * *
THIS EXHIBITION will feature
two of the nation's foremost fenc-
ing masters, Byron Krieger and
Bela de Tuscan who will demon-
strate the use of the foil and sabre.
Krieger ranked number one
in the state of Michigan and
tenth nationally, is the defend-
ing champion in Midwestern
Senior Foil and Sabre competi-
De Tuscan, founder and fencing
master of Detroit's famous Salle
de Tuscan, is the leading fencing
coach in the midwest and ranks as
one of the nation's top profes-
sional swordsmen.

motion in their demonstration of
fundamental fencing facts. They
will gradually increase the speed
of their combat to the rapid pace

Another novel feature de-
signed to excite spectator inter-
est Saturday, is the numbering
of all participants in all events.
This will solve an age old prob-
lem for fericing fans since it is
impossible to identify the various
sword swingers due to the thick
masks that are worn for protec-
ALL PLAYERS and their num-
bers, collegeand entries will be
listed in the souvenir program
which will also include an in-
structive "dope" leaflet.
This leaflet will contain a
brief history of the sword sport
and a description of some of the
fine points of the "world'seldest
game." It will tell the reader
what to look for and how to
watch the "noble sport."
The program And booklet will be
free as will be the admission to
this rare fencing treat.

OF THE FOUR teams making
up this year's tourney, the Tigers
have the poorest record, winning
15, while losing five and tying
one. In competition with the tour-
nament teams, Colorado hasn't
fared too well.
Michigan has beaten the Tig-
ers once, whipping them 3-2 in
overtime and the second game
ended in a 4-4 tie. Boston Col-
lege, Colorado's first opponent,
holds a 6-5 overtime decision.
The Colorado sextet has, how-
ever, two distinct advantages that
may very well offset any team
weaknesses that may be present.
FIRST, THEY will be playing
on their home ice, with a favor-
able home crowd cheering them
on. That is a hurdle that the
visiting teams have found hard to
get over.
Second, the very high altitude
makes breathingyvery difficult,
and even though it is a handicap
to all the teams, the Tigers are
used to it and can easily benefit
from it.
