Rely Heavily on Burford,
As Wolverine Puck Star

Set 18th Swim Gala Tomorrow

By BOB VOKAC
Coach Vic Heyliger is probably
one of the luckiest men in the
world today.
This season, Heyliger will have
at his disposal the combined tal-
ents of the returning "dynamic
trio" from last year's campaign-
Gil Burford, Neil Celley and Wally
Grant.
THESE THREE high flying
skaters will form the first line of
attack when the Wolverines blast
Tickets for the hockey game

day. Students are requested to

the lid off their current hockey
season tomorrow night at the Coli-
seum against McMaster Univer-
sity.
Ranking high among Heyli-

ger's current offensive stalwarts
is Gil Burford, returning high
point man from last season's
squad. In his first year of col-
legiate competition, Gil ham-
mered home 56 points to place
second in team scoring behind
Gordie McMillan's 61 markers.
The 25-year old business ad-
ministration junior from Windsor,
Ontario, was undeniably brought
up on flashing blades. After flip-
pin' on his head a couple of times
at the rare old age of eight, Gil
straightened his ankles and began
to seriously acquire ice talent.
BUT FOR WORLD War II, Bur-
ford would undoubtedly never
have come to Michigan. After a
blazing career at Patterson Col-
legiate High in Windsor, Gil was
asked in 1942 to join theNew York
Rovers, a farm club of the New
York Rangers.
Since the Canadian national
draft laws prohibited eligible
youths from leaving the country,
Burford was forced to turn down
the Rover offer.
Playing alongside Gil at that
time was Jack Jackson, brother of
the former Detroit Red Winger
Harold Jackson.
BEFORE JOINING the newly
organized Windsor Spitfires in
1944, now a Red Wing farm club,
Gil led the City League of Wind-
sor in scoring while playing with
the Ford squad.
After the Spitfires jumped
into the Junior Ontario Ama-
teur Hockey Association in 1945,
Burford joined the Gotfredson
team in the newly organized In-
ternational League.
Finally after a stint in the Ca-
nadian Army, Michigan began to
enter the picture. While playing
for Bright's in the International
League, Gil was sold on coming to
Ann Arbor by teammate Keith
Crossman who played with Coach
Heyliger back in 1937.
THIS ACQUAINTAINSHIP re-
sulted in Burford's joining the
Wolverine pucksters and after last
year's results, it may prove to have
been one of the luckiest friend-
ships for some time to come.

ROUGH WATER-The Varsity swimming pool in the Intra-Mural
Building won't be quite as serene as pictured here when the 18th
annual Michigan Amateur Athletic Association championships are
going on tomorrow afternoon and evening. The Gala will feature
men's and women's AAU championship races and exhibition events.
