'M' Gymnasts Face Tough Spartans


<c, -


Three Records Broken
In Season's 21st Victory

Three records were shattered
when Vic Heyliger's hockey club
easily over ran a listless Michigan
State sextet, 17-1, before a small
gallery at the Coliseum last night.
Lanky wingman Gil Burford
smashed the first record by tally-
ing two goals and earning one as-
sist to establish a new Michigan
individual season scoring mark.

The third record broken last
night was on the books since the
1945-6 season when Michigan tip-
ped over Sarnia, 16-2. The 17-1
Spartan goalfest now sets a new
game scoring mark.
PAUL PELOW and Bob Heath-
Cott teamed up to lead the Wolver-
n scoring parade with each get-
ting a hat-trick apiece. Pelow
gained his first hat of the season
while Heathcott posted his second
trio-his first also being against
MSC earlier in the season.
With the Spartans completely
disorganized during the entire
contest, Heyliger's crew romped
at will over Coach Paulsen's hap-
less and inexperienced club.
Michigan's lopsided margin is
demonstrated in the saves made
by each goalie.
Playing the entire contest for
the Wolverines, Paul Milanowski
turned back only 10 blasts while
Del Reid of the Spartans was busy
handling 37 unsuccessful Michi-
gan attempts.

OSU Record

'I' Success
Trophy cases in Columbus, Ohio
are bursting at the seams this
year as a result of the unprece-

collected by the Buckeyes during
the past fall and winter season.

Conference history that one school

NCAA hockey championship.
That was the year in which
the mighty men from Michigan
invaded sunny Californiaand
stunned football fans there-
abouts with a crushing 49-0 Rose
Bowl win over a highly rated
Southern California crew.
It was the greatest year on
record for teams flying the Maize
and Blue colors since the time
back in 1926 when they were co-
champs in both football and bas-
ketball and champions in outdoor
track and baseball.

MICHIGAN suffered a drought

fall of 1945 until the 1947 football
title launched the Wolverines on
the most successful championship
campaign in the history of the
Up until that time, they had
won at least one championship
each year.
But what are Ohio's chances of
extending their winning streak?
PLAYING host to the Big Ten
Fencing Championships, the Bucks
are favored to retain the crown
they won last year and thus add
another scalp to their belts.
And with baseball and outdoor
track yet to be contested on this
year's schedule, Ohio, by virtue
of victory in the indoor track
championships, should be able to
pick up another major title in
the home stretch drive.
If they do, their record will
probably be unmatched in another
54 years of Big Ten Competition.

AP Honors Five Seniors
As Cage All-Americans
Cousy Riated Number One Player on Squad
With Schnittker, Unruh, O'Shea, and Arizin

NEW YORK-UP)-Five inspira-
tional-type seniors from Holy
Cross, Villanova, Ohio State, Brad-
ley and Notre Dame were voted
yesterday as the 1950 Associated
Press All - American basketball
The five, all top scorers, are:
Bob Cousy, Holy Cross; Paul Ari-
zin, Villanova; Dick Schnittker,
Ohio State; Paul Unruh, Bradley;
and Kevin O'Shea, Notre Dame.
ON THE BASIS of five points
for a first team vote and two
points for a second team vote,
Cousy was rated No. 1. The six-
foot-one ball-handing wizard who
scored 499 points for Holy Cross
this year and passed for many
assists, received 270 first team
rotes and 37 seconds for a total
of 1,424 points.
Arizin, the leading major col-
lege scorer, was second with
1,004 points on 170 firsts and 77
seconds. Scoring 705 points, he
led Villanova to a successful
season although the Wildcats did
not receive sanction to partici-
pate in the annual NCAA post-
season playoffs. Oddly he was
not good enough to make his
high school team, but was de-
veloped by Villanova coach, Al

after his return from the Rose
Bowl where he played end on the
Buckeyes' victorious football elev-
en. He scored 381 points in 18
games for a new OSU record. He
received 957 points on 171 firsts
and 66 seconds.

UNRUH, a southpaw, sparked
Bradley to its position as No. 1
team in the country. He polled
957 points on 155 firsts and 91
seconds. The son of a Baptist
minister Unruh had tossed in 391
points through the Drake game
and is known as an ace rebounder.

O'Shea received 102 firsts and
100 seconds for 710 points, an
impressive tribute to his ability
in view of Notre Dame's nine
losing games. The oldest of the
team at 24 years, O'Shea was
voted all-America as a sopho-
more in 1948 but had a bad year
last season and slipped to the
third team. He set a Notre Dame

Michigan gymnasts meet Michi-
gan State College tonight at 8
o'clock in the Intramural Sports
Buildingsbefore a crowd that
should set an all-time home at-
tendance record.
Coach Newt Loken took a look
at his form book last night and
announced that the spectators
might be treated to the closest
dual contest since gymnastics be-
came a varsity sport here.

ACCORDING to Loken's figures
the winnei' should come out on
top by at the most a couple of
points. The Michigan mentor
would not predict a victory for
the Wolverines, classing the tus-
sle as a 50-50 toss-up.
The Spartans have a fine 5-2
won-lost record for the season
thus far. One of their losses
came at the hands of Minnesota,

surprising eight-point margin,
