Setting a new Michigan record
with evey point that he notches,
Gordie McMillan looks like he is
well on the way to his fourth
straight scoring crown.
McMillan, currently leading the
pack with 33 points won the title
outright in the 1945-46 and 1947-1
48 seasons and tied with linemate
Al Renfrew in 1946-47.
LAST SEASON, McMillan broke
the former record of 116 held by
Wolverine coach Vic Heyliger and,
having the advantage of four;
years of competition, seems cer-
tain to set a mark that will re-
main on the books for a long time.
Although leading the team, he
is far behind his record-break-
ing pace of last year which saw
him garner 59 points on 30 goals
and 29 assists. His game aver-
age this season is a creditable
2.35, but falls short of the 2.81
piled up during the last cam-
paign.
The battle for second spot in
the scoring race grew tighter dur-
ing the vacation period and now
finds five Wolverines closely
bunched.

Michigan's second line offers
a good example of unity. All

Past records don't win games
though and with a pair of tough
games on the docket with North
Dakota this weekend, Coach Hey-
liger sent the team through a fast
workout at the Coliseum yester-
day.
Hurt by the loss of ace defense-
man Ross Smith because of a
shoulder separation, Hey li g e r
named John Griffin to fill the
hole. Griffin, who played for the
first time last Saturday, per-
formed well.

GARDELLA'S SUIT, brought!
against Commissioner A. B.
Chandler, the New York Giants
and the presidents of the two ma-
jor leagues, charges that base-I
ball is a monopoly because of the
"reserve clause" which binds a
player to one club.I
Without the clause, a player
could offer his services each
year to the highest bidder.
Chaos would result, officials of
the game declare, if the reserve
clause ever is successfully at-
tacked.
Today's decision, written by
Senior Judge Learned Hand, re-
verses a ruling made last July 14
by Judge Henry Goddard in Fed-
eral District Court, when he dis-
missed Gardella's suit before trial.
The reversal came as a shock to
the leaders of the national game.

Renewal of the drive to re-
tore fencing as a Varsity sport
at Michigan was announced today
by Ed Miellef, captain of the
Scimitar Club which has repre-
sented Michigan in competition,
unofficially.
Fencing enjoyed Varsity status
until 1934 when the University
withdrew its support.
MICLLEF REVEALED that the
petitions will be circulated during
the remainder of this week and all
of next week. The Scimitar Club
will ask the Board in Control 'of
Intercollegiate Athletics to active-
ly consider the restoration of fenc-
ing to varsity status.
During this wek, petitions
will be available for signing in
front of the Unions at the en-
trances to the West Quadrangle
and at the "M" Club. Petitions
will be circulated on the cam-
pus proper next week.
Five Big Nine schools boast
varsity fencing squads. They are
Northwestern, Illinois, Ohio State,
Wisconsin and Minnesota. The
sport is officially recognized by
the Conference and Northwestern
is defending champion.

'M' Thinclads Open Dual Meet
Season with Big Red Saturday

Michigan's track team opens
its 1949 dual meet season against
a strong Cornell team Saturday
night at Yost Field House.
In an earlier meet this season,
Cornell swamped a weak Dart-
mouth squad, 89-24, and showed
considerable strength in the dash
and hurdle events in doing so.
BRIGHT SPOT of the Cornell
team is high jumper Paul Robe-
son, Jr., who has cleared 6 ft., 5
in. in his specially event, and
jumps around 6 ft., 3 consistently.
Robeson, also a fair shot putter,
is the son of former All-American
gridder Paul Robeson, famous
movie singer.
With Wolverine Tom Dolan
jumping around 6 ft., 4 in., a
good battle is expected in the
high jump.
Another close duel will pit
sprinter Art Henrie, of Michi-
gan, against Cornell's Bob Hunt.
Hunt, a six foot sophomore, won
the 75-yard dash against Dart-
mouth in :07.8, good time for
early season. Henrie, also a soph-
omore, matched that time at the
Michigan State Relays last Satur-
day, running in the preliminaries.
HUNT PLACED second in both
the high and low hurdles against'
Dartmouth. The 75-yard lows,
were taken by versatile Bill Owen
in the excellent time of :08.4.

With Michigan's Jim Mitchell and
Clay Holland matched. against
Hunt and Owen, a close race is
likely to develope in both hurdle
races.
Cornell, regarded as a threat in
Eastern track circles, will have its
only chance to test Midwestern
track power Saturday. The Big
Red has one remaining dual meet,
with Yale, the IC4A meet at New
York, and the Heptagonals at Bos-
ton.

By The Associated Press
Scoring five times in the second
period, the Detroit Red Wings
held on to their 14 point lead in
the NHL, as they blanked a jinx
New York team 8-0. It was their
sixth victory in a row and Lum-
ley's second straight shutout.
Over in Boston, the second
place Bruins kept pace with the
Wings grinding out a 5-3 victory
over the hapless Chicako Black-
hawks. It was the fourth loss in
succession for the Hawks.
Montreal retained, their slim
one point lead over the Toronto
Maple Leafs as the two teams bat-
tied to a 2-2 deadlock in Toronto.
Montreal currently holds third
place in the standings and To-
ronto fourth.

A FINE freestyler but usually
witheld from middle distance
events to compete in the relays,
Verdeur stayed out of the medley
relay to hook up with Michigan's
Matt Mann III in the 220.
The result was a neck and
neck race from the starting gun
that ended in an eyelash win for
Verdeur who turned in a fine
2:09.8 timing. Mann was timed
in 2:1O..L
Sohl who had turned in a blaz-
ing 60.7 leg in the medley relay
kept pace with Verdeur for the
first four laps of their 200-yard
breaststroke battle but he tired
rapidly and finished a good ten
yards back.
VERDEUR'S WINNING time
was 2:16.7 just two seconds under
his world record set here last
March.
Both of Michigan's relay
teams turned in notable per-
formances.
The medley relay made up of
backstroker Bernie Kahn, Sohil
and freestyler Dave Tittle touched
out in 2:57.1 a full 25 yards ahead'
of LaSalle while 'the 400-yd. free-
style team composed of Tommy
Coates, Dave Neisch, Jay Sanford
and Charlie Moss finished in
3:35.5 as Moss fought off a strong
challenge from the redoutable Mr.
Verdeur to win by a body length.
** *
MOSS WAS TIMED in 52.7 for
his 100-yard stint to climax a
highly successful evening for him-
self.
Earlier the elongated junior
had finished right behind Dick
Ienberg in lbe 50-yard free
style as the Wolverine duo
dunked LaSalle's highly regard-
ed Bob Regan. Weinberg was
timed in 23.1 seconds.
Regan, however, came back to
whip Bill Kogen in a photo finish
in the 100-yd. free style. Kogen
got off to a poor start, forged into
the lead at halfway mark and held
it till the last five yards when a
closing surge by Regan brought
the Explorer star back into the
lead.
RALPH T RIMBORN and
George Eyster finished one-two
for Michigan in the low board div-
ing thanks to a closing rush by
Eyster. Trimborn turned in a
steady performance as he easily

won his second victory in as many
meets.
LaSalle's Ed Richards and
Wolverine Tom Smith provided
another thriller in the 150-yd.
backstroke as they matched
stroke for stroke down to the
wire with Jack Arbuckle coming
{p right behind them. Richards
got the decision in 1:43.7.
Johnny McCarthy touched out
in 5:00.3 to take a decision o vr
LaSalle's Tom Devlin in the 440-
yd. freestyle. It was an impres-
sive triumph for McCarthy who
turned in one of his finest per-
formances in whipping the man
who had upset Michigan State's
George Hoogerhyde in the 220
Monday.
