Suprunowicz Sets Cage
Standard for Wolverines

Little Trouble Expected
From Hapless Spartans
Reserves Dominate 'M' Starting Lineup;
Michigan State Looking for First Victory


Unheralded Duo Sparks 'M' Gymnasts


. i

Mack Suprunowicz has written
the last chapter of his Michigan
basketball legend.
The junior engineering student
-from Schenectady ended four
years of top-level hardwood com-
petition last Saturday when he
"led his Wolverines to a victory
over Purdue in the season finale.
** *
WHEN THE 19 points he scored
in that game were listed in the
record book, unofficial statistics
disclosed that Mack had registered
an all time Michigan high of 1006
markers over the four campaigns.
Since this mark was made
possible by the wartime fresh-
man eligibility rule, the proba-
bility that it will be equalled or
su o _-sed in the near future ap-
pears remote.
Suprunowicz led his team of-
fensively each season. His pace-
making totals have progressively
increased from 228 points as a
rookie, to 279 as the veteran cap-
tain of the 1949-50 outfit.
THIS WEEK he was given hon-
orable mention by the Associated
Press in its All-Conference selec-
tions, even though the Wolverines
finished in the second division.
He holds the Michigan rec-
ord for most points scored in
one game, 28 against Purdue a
year ago. The year before that,
he and Bob Harrison led the
team to a Big Ten champion-
ship and a crack at the NCAA
title, which it lost.
Mack's degree requires five

years of college work so he'll be
around until June of 1951. He is
not considering any professional
cage offers at the moment, and
that brings up another story.
* * *
WHEN Suprunowicz first ar-
rived at Michigan he had never
played golf. When he was intro-
duced to the game he liked it so
well that he decided to make every
effort to become proficient at it.
His success was phenomenal.
Last season he qualified to
compete with Michigan's cham-
pion links squad. He has high
hopes of making his way with
a host of stars on hand for the
coming season. In order to pre-
serve his amateur status he has
rejected all pro basketball
Mack does have intentions of
playing for pay after graduation,
In the coming National Invi-
tational Tournament at New
York another Suprunowicz will
move in to the cage spotlight. He
is younger brother Dick, the de-
fensive star of Syracuse Univer-
Then there's Walter to complete
the sweep. He's the top scorer
for his high school team. The
game is in Suprunowicz blood.
Rolfe Admits
Tigers Better
bert (Red) Rolfe, down-to-earth
manager of the Detroit Tigers,
readily admits his club is improved
over last year, but does not rate it
as equal to the New York Yankees
or Boston Red Sox.
"We have some weak spots," he
said. "You can't win pennants
with weak spots. We also could
use some speed. We can't run the
bases like I want to."
Rolfe predicted a five-team
race for the American League
flag with the Yankees and Red
Sox the choice over the Cleve-
land Indians, Philadelphia Ath-
letics and Tigers. He picked the
Chicago White Sox as the best
of the three also-rans.
"That first division is going to
be mighty tough to crack. We'll
have to go like hell to be up there.
"The Yankees are certain to be
strong. They don't figure to suffer
as many injuries as last year."

Michigan's hockey team will be
seeking the distinction of being
the first Wolverine sextet in 29
years of intercollegiate competi-
tion to win 21 games as it meets
Michigan State's Spartans at 8
o'clock tonight at the Coliseum.
Tonight's encounter is the fin-
ale of a home and home series
that saw the Wolverines on the
long end of a 10-4 score in the
first game played last month.
* * *
IN ALL GAMES played to date
between the two schools Michigan
holds a decided advantage of 15
wins against one setback.
The hapless Spartans, in their
first year of collegiate hockey

for the record

Award Winners Announced
For Hoopsters, Swimmers

since 1930, have been handi-
capped by an inexperienced
squad and have dropped all 13
of their games thus far this
Tonight's game winds up the
Green and White's 1950 sched-
ule, while the Wolverines make
their last home appearance Sat-
urday against Western Ontario
before leaving for Colorado
Springs and the NCAA champ-
ionship playoffs.
Coach Harold Paulsen will start
Del Reid in goal for the Spartans
and Joe Suarez teaming with Cap.
Jim Doyle on defense. His start-
ing line will probably be Bill Mc-
Cormick, Bill Blair and Neil Bris-
IN THE FIRST Wolverine-Spar-
tan clash both Blair and Bristol
netted goals as the East Lansing
squad rolled up its highest scor-
ing total of the campaign to that
date. Last week-end, however, this
four-goal record was surpassed in
absorbing a 9-5 beating at the
hands of Western Ontario.
Coach Vic Heyliger has indi-
cated that he will have Paul
Milanowski in the Michigan
goal with Graham Cragg and
Lou Paolatto pairing in the
starting defense combination.
Bob Heathcott, Eddie May and
Paul Pelow will be the starting line
for the Heyliger crew.
The physical condition of the
Maize and Blue squad is still sub
par with Neil Celley fresh out from
a spell in Health Service and Capt.
Wally Grant still favoring a knee
injury incurred in the second
Minnesota game two weeks ago.
Currently tied with Gordie Mc-
Millan for Michigan's all time in-
dividual scoring record, wing Gil
Burford has an excellent chance
to break the 61 point total tonight
and take sole possession of the
scoring record.

Despite the grim possibility of
suffering their first defeat of the
season tomorrow night, Michigan's
gymnastics team continues to
draw welcome power from here-
tofore unsuspected sources.
Latest bright spot cheering the
Wolverines is the blossoming of
the side horse twins, Jeff Knight
and Bob Checkley. With their
performances in the Ohio State
meet last week; the two finally
"arrived," in the estimation of
Coach Newt Loken.
All basketball lettermen are
asked to report to Rentschler's
Studio, 319 East Huron at 12:30
p.m., Friday for the 1950 squad

Will all athletic award win-
ners please report to Yost
Field House as soon as possible
to be measured for their sweat-
-Henry Hatch.

A PEEK at the season's records
proves that the showing of Knight
and Checkley should not have
come as much of a surprise last
Saturday. Both men have been
improving steadily.
Knight has two seconds and
two thirds in the five meets so
far. Checkley has won himself
one second, two thirds and a
fourth in the same number of
meets. Each has finished out
of the scoring only once, Knight
in the Indiana contest and
Checkley in the Minnesota duel.
With Captain Pete Barthell
contributing two wins, a second
and a fifth in four meets the
side horse squad has totaled 43
team points this season. Of this
amount, Barthell has contributed
17, KInight 14, and Checkley 12.
BOTH KNIGHT and Checkley
went through their routines with-
out a slip-up for the first time
against the Buckeyes. .
Knight came to the Wolverines
with some high school experience,
