Williams for Hoop Season

A scholastic technicality has cut
short the Michigan basketball ca-
reer of Dick Williams.
The six foot, seven inch center
was declared ineligible for in-
ter-collegiate competition Monday
when it was discovered that his
transcripts of credit from Vander-
bilt University were not in order
with Western Conference regula-

HE HAS SPENT the past year
establishing residence and schol-
astic requirements at Michigan
with the intention of playing var-
sity ball this semester.
Bradley Leads
AP's National
Cage PFarade
NEW YORK- (AP) -Bradley's
bustling Braves head the nation's
basketball parade today because
of a skinny southpaw and a little
round man.
Paul Unruh is the lean scoring'
ace. Little Gene (Squeaky) Mel-
ihoirre, a mere five-foot-eight, is
the dynamic, "Midget" who some-
times plays the big fellow's game
at center.
PRIMARILY through the efforts
of those two, Bradley (24-3) yes-
terday replaced Holy Cross (22-0)
as the No. 1 team in the weekly,
Associated Press poll.
Bradley, tops in the Missouri
Valley Conference has lost only to
Purdue, Kentucky and Detroit.
The top teams:

2. Holy Cross (44) 22-0 1,134

Thinking he was cleared at,
the end of last term, Coach Er-
nie McCoy used him in four
contests, three of which were
losing efforts. Williams did not
play against Michigan State on
Monday, wien the difficulty
first came to light.
The Grosse Pointe giant must
wait another year for a chance to
play again. His most notable per-
formance was turned in last Sat-
urday at Champaign where he
scored five baskets against Illi-
* * *
three-game losing streak Monday
by defeating Michigan State, 70-
53, but the battle was much closer
than the score indicates.
Led by forwards Dan Smith
and Bill Rapchak, the Spartans
put on a torrid shooting exhibi-
tion in the game's early stages
but finally succumbed to the
smoother working Maize and
Blue quintet. Both teams were
noticeably tired when the final
buzzer sounded.
It was evident that the 70-60
Wolverine loss to Illinois two days
earlier had taken a lot out of the
players. That defeat was one of
the nardest to accept in view of
the fact that Michigan shooting
was sharper than at any other
time this season. Against the Illini
42 per cent of the field goal at-
tempts were successful as con-
trasted with 30 per cent against
the Spartans.
Wolverine reserves finally re-
ceived a chance to go into action
in the late stages of Monday's
game. Thirteen players broke in-
to the usually air tight lineup.

Marks Fall
In Illinois
Seven records were erased, four
of them by Don McEwen, in last
week's Michigan - Illinois track
meet, by outstanding performan-
ces in the mile, two-mile, broad-
jump and pole vault.
Running the first mile race of
his collegiate career, McEwen
smashed the Field House, Varsity
and Meet record with his 4:11.7
effort and returned to set a new
meet record of 9:18.8 in his spec-
ialty, the two-mile.
"McEWEN'S DOUBLE was the
greatest known in Western Con-
ference track history," declared
Phil Diamond, one of the mid-
west's greatest track authorifies,
who was serving as official timer
at the meet.
Also praising the sophomore
star's efforts was Illini coach,
Leo Johnson, who stated: "This
country has never seen a dis-
tance runner as great as Mc-
Johnson was probably referring
to the fact that since the days of
Gil Dodds and Greg Rice, note-
worthy international track times
have been almost completely dom-
inated in events longer than the
half-mile by European and Scan-
dinavian runners.
The only double winner in ad-
dition to McEwen last week was
the Illini captain, Lou Irons, who
set a Meet Record of six feet, 3%18
inches in the high jump, and put
the meet on ice for his team mates
by winning the broad jump.
The other meet record to fall
was knocked down by the Ilini's
Don Laz who cleared 14 feet in the
pole vault.

Vic Heyliger's hockey crew will
meet the luckless Michigan State
club tonight at East Lansing in
what should be the first breather
for the Wolverines.
The game starts at 8 p.m.
THUS FAR, the Spartans have
been set back on their heels by
three previous Michigan oppon-
ents - Michigan Tech, Minne-

man track are requested to re-

sota and North Dakota. The
Spartans have yet to break into
the win column.
Flaying their first year of
indoor collegiate ice competi-
tion, Coach Harold Paulsen's in-
ept squad has been living up to
its initial notices.
Since this is the Spartan's first
appearance on ice since 1930,
Paulsen, a former All-American
hockey star from Minnesota, ex-
plained early in the season that
his weak and inexperienced team
would be fortunate to win a single
PRIOR TO THE revamping of
Demonstration Hall in East Lan-
sing into a modern 4,000 capacity
arena, Green and White hockey
activities were limited to outdoor
rink conditions.
During the period prior to
1930 when State waged ice com-
petition, Michigan met the
Spartans 15 times and came
home victorious 14 out of the
15 times.
PLEASED WITH the recent per-

Year of Indoor Competition

formance of his new attack, Hey-
liger plans on utilizing the same
combinations that blew the lid
off Colorado last weekend.
Centering the lightning fast
first line is Earl Keyes flanked
by Capt. Wally Grant and Bob
Heathcott. Keyes, the sensa-
tional sophomore addition to
Heyliger's attack, has proved his
ability and provides a sparkling
asset to the Michigan forwards.
The second line features the two
top scorers of the club as Gil Bur-
ford with 49 points and Neil Cel-
ley with 37 points team up with
Lenny Brumm to form one of the
most explosive scoring combina-
tions on collegiate ice today.
BRUMM IS rapidly becoming
one of the most improved players
on the team and personifies the
general improved trend of the
Wolverine club since the season's
Rounding out the Michigan
attack is the Pelto-Marmo-1MjayI
line. Since switching from de-
fense to offense, May has help-
ed spark the third line into an
effective offensive unit. His
stick handling against Colorado
proved valuable to the Michi-
gan attack.
IN THE NETS for the Maize
and Blue will be Jack MacInnes,
Paul Milanowski, or Hal Downes.
MacInnes is definitely one of the
standout Wolverine goalies and he
is rapidly winning the concerted
disdain of opposition forwards. In
five games he has compiled a ter-
rific goals-against average of 1.6.
Milanowski and Downes have
not seen much action yet, but
Heyliger may use them tonight to
give them experience.

interested persons will be welcome.
