In practice Heyliger has used

Ross Smith in what will prob-

'49',s Top-Play
NEW YORK -- (P) - The most
thrilling and dramatic single play
of the 1949 college football season
turns out to have been twins after
a count of ballots in a country-
wide poll conducted by the Asso-
ciated Press.
Drawing exactly the same num-
ber of votes for the year's top
thriller-diller was a 102-yard kick-
off return on Oct. 15 by Frank
Brunk of California against USC,
and a simple point-after-touch-
down booted by Jimmy Hague of
Ohio State on Nov. 19 against
Hague's vital kick gave the Ohio
State Buckeyes a 7-7 tie with
Michigan in their closing game.

Michigan's new basketball team
made its first appearance before
a select gathering of critical home
supporters last night, and respond-
ed to their presence with a lop-
sided triumph over Miami Uni-
versity of Ohio.
The score was 79-48.

AN ESTIMATED crowd of 4,000
which braved bad weather to ap-
pear saw the contest progress as
advertised. The Wolverines took
full advantage of superiority in

height, speed, and staying power
in piling up a formidable 45-27
halftime margin over the weary
The tall men among Michi-
gan's regulars were the stand-
outs on offense and defense.
Forward Don McIntosh poured
17 points through the netting to
lead the scorers. Leo VanderKuy
at center was close behind with
16, and Hal Morrill came next
with 10. This trio completely
dominated both backboards.
At the outset Miami managed
to trade baskets on fairly even
terms with the Wolverines al-
though the latter never were be-
hind. With five minutes gone the
Redskins pulled up to a 12-11
deficit whereupon VanderKuy,
Morrill and Jim Skala blasted the
lid off Michigan's basket for a
25-14 lead. During this splurge
the lanky center tapped in four
field goals and one free throw.
UP TO THIS point McIntosh
had not made an appearance on
the floor. When he got the nod
from coach Ernie McCoy the fire-
works really got under way.
Before the halftime buzzer
sounded he distinguished him-
self as, the outstanding ball
handler on the winning quintet.
In addition he registered five
nifty baskets from diverse spots
on the floor to thoroughly be-
wilder Miami's defenders.
The Redskin attackers were lost
in the shuffle. Center Frank Pe-
ticca was able to slip past Michi-
gan for 11 points, the best indi-
vidual showing among the losers.
Bob McPhee and Dick Kretch col-
lected nine and eight respectively.

iously enough with McCoy send-
ing all his regulars to battle. Mc-

THE WOMEN are entered in
the 18th annual Swim Gala as

Four championship events are
planned for the women, high-
lighted by the 50-yard breasti
Kogen also said that Olympic
record holder Adolf Keifer will be
on hand with an exhibition of va-
rious swimming strokes, including
his precision back stroke. This is
the same stroke that won for him
the 100-meter record of 1:05.9 in
the 1936 Olympics, when he was a
mere 16 year old.
KEIFER WILL present his f a-
mous synchronized swimming act,
with the aid of his crew of female
assistants and background music.
Three veterans of the 1948
Olympics in London have sub-
mitted their entries. Howard

So close was the finish be-
tween these two, that the offi-
cial timers gave Davies a faster
time than Sohl, although the
Michigan swimmer was given
the third spot.
Davies is a second semester
freshman, and will be eligible for
varsity competition for the major
part of the season next semester.

Gradually the game developed
into a circus in which just about
everything happened. There
were several wild scrambles in
which there were no holds bar-
red. Once a kicked ball bounded
off the shin of a Redskin guard,
took a right angle turn, and
rolled along the floor a court's
width into the waiting hand of
reserve center, Irv Wisniewski.
From a statistical standpoint
the Wolverine offense functioned
well, making good on 31 of 88
field goal attempts for a com-
mendable 35.2 per cent.
