Michigan To Face Top
Canadian Hockey Team

wolverine Natators Major Factor - -,
In West's Defeat Of Eastern Team

VanderKuy's Pace Near
'Supy's' 117 Point Total


Michigan's natators, who spent
.the Christmas recess in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, were a major
~factof in the West's victory over
the East in the East-West swim
~ meet held in that city on Decem-
ber 25.
The only blot on the swimming
team's sojourn in the sunny south
came in the form of rain which
came down steadily for all but
'three days of their stay.

Mann's mermen returned to Ann
Arbor in top condition, tanned,
cheerful and ready for their open-
ing Conference meet against
Purdue's Boilermakers which will
be held a week from Saturday in
the I-M pool.
In the feature East-West
meet held on Christmas day,
the West overpowered the East
team sweeping seven of the
nine events. The 50-meter free-
style and the 200-meter free
style relay were the only events
which were won by the East.

The West took the 400-meter
breaststroke, the 50-meter back -
stroke, the 200-meter backstroke
relay, the 400-meter freestyle, the
200-meter breast stroke relay, the
300-meter medleyerelay, and the
400-meter freestyle relay.
MICHIGAN'S breast srokers,
John Davies, Stu Elliot, Bill Austin
and Charlie Moss completely
dominated that event, while Moss
and Bernie Kahn, backstroker,
together with Chuck Thomas of
Purdue made up the winning team
in the 300-meter medley relay.
Gus Stager and Matt Mann
III, finished second and third
respectively in the 400 meter
freestyle event. Stager and
Mann, together with Luis Child
were three of the five fastest
swimmers in the quarter-mile
Matt Mann, Wolverine coach
said that he was highly pleased
and well satisfied with the show-
ing the team made. Mann singled
out for praise Gporge Eyster,
Michigan's number bne diver who
performed beautifully.
The time spent at Fort Lauder-
dale gave Michigan an oppor-
tunity to see swimmers from all
over the country and get some
indication of the strength of this
year's opponents. Iowa entered a
very good team in the 200-meter
free style relay.
"M' Favored
In Conference
Mat Opener
If recent records are any indi-
cation of current sports trend,
Michigan wrestlers should defeat
defending Conference champs
Purdue, in the Wolverines' home
mat opener, this Saturday.
Since 1943, Michigan has
wrestled Purdue six times and has
emerged with four victories. The
record is doubly good due to the
fact that in this period, Purdue
has won the Big Ten title three
* * *
IN 1945, the Wolverines de-
feated Purdue and the Boiler-
makers went on to win the con-
ference crown. In 1948, the act
was repeated as Michigan took
the duel meet and Purdue took
conference laurels, with Michigan
finishing a close second. Purdue
took the title by a one point mar-
tin over the Wolverines.
Last year Michigan squad
dropped a close match to the
Boilermakers, 16-15, as the Pur-
due men went on to another
title and to national honors.
Purdue will invade Ann Arbor
with a star-studded line-up head-
ed by two Conference champs,
Arnold Plaza and Joe Patascil.
Plaza has won 21 straight duel
meets and was captain of last
year's wrestling All-American
team. He made a clean sweep of
all major collegiate and amateur
championships. He is easily the
outstanding 121 pound college
wrestler in the nation. Pastascil

pound weight.
Charles Has No
Title Contender
WASHINGTON - (A) - Ezzard
Charles, the World's Heavyweight
Boxing Champion as recognized
by the National Boxing Associa-
tion, finds himself in the position
so long held by Joe Louis - no
logical contender for his title.
The N.B.A. issued its quarterly

ratings yesterday without naming
a single fighter it deems worthy
to challenge Charles.

Mack Suprunowicz, Michigan
basketball's individual scoring
champion for the past three
years, has once again assumed the
role of pacemaker of the Wol-
Unofficial statistics compiled by
The Daily for the nine games
played to date credited the fiery
forward with 117 points for an
average of 13 per contest.
WITHIN EASY striking dis-
tance of that mark was center
LeoVanderKuy who already has
held the lead himself five times
this season. He has collected 112
of Michigan's markers.
A good balance of scoring
prevails among the next four
player's on the list. Hal Morrill
continues to be a big factor at
guards with 81 points. Don Mc-
Intosh is close behind with 76,
the surprising Chuck Murray
has 52, and Jim Skala is sixth
with 41.
These six men have played most
of Michigan's basketball so far
this season.

IN THE MATTER of field goals
Suprunowicz is far out in front
with 48, 11 more than his nearest
rival VanderKuy. The latter leads
in free throws converted having
made good on 38.
The best percentage at the
charity stripe goes to Morrill,
however. He has missed only
three times in 22 attempts. The
next most consistent Wolverine
is Murray with 24 of 35 success-
Michigan has outscored its op-
ponents 508 to 470 while winning
six and losing three. Oddly
enough the team has made only
two more baskets than the op-
position, but has received and
converted more foul shots.
The team totals show 187 field
goals, 221 attempted free tosses,
and 134 made for a percentage of
.607 from the line. The opposi-
tion has been slightly more ac-
curate in this respect with a .614

NEW YORK-(A)-Tony Les-
wick's goal early in the third
period gave the New York Rang-
ers a 2-1 victory over the De-
troit Red Wings last night and
moved them into sole possession
of second place in the National
Hockey League.

TORONTO-(MP-Gaye Stew-
art's third-period tally while the
Toronto Maple Leafs were two
men short gave the Chicago
Black Hawks a 4-4 tie with the
Stanley Cup Champions in their
National Hockey League Game
last night.

NEW YORK-(AI)-Joltin' Joe
DiMaggio, the fellow who got up
from a sick bed to lead the New
York Yankees to the American
League pennant, made sports'
greatest comeback in 1949.
Twenty of 93 sports writers who
answered the Associated Press'
annual year end poll voted for
DiMaggio, who did not even get
into a league game until June 28.
The Jolter barely nosed out
the Yankee team as a whole,
which clinched the pennant on
the last day of the season after
trailing the Boston Red Sox by
a full game two days before the
end of the campaign.
Nineteen writers nodded toward
the Yanks, but in the process
many of them noted that they
were voting for the team with a
big assist to DiMaggio. To make
the Yankee comeback monopoly
almost complete, Manager Casey
Stengel received six votes to tie
for third place with the Louisiana
State football team.
NEW YORK-(P)-St. John's
of Brooklyn, a smooth, poised club
with victories over the winners of

last season's two big national
tournaments, yesterday was rank-
ed the top college team of the na-
tion in the Associated Press' first
basketball poll of the campaign.
The Brooklyn Redmen, who
were toppled from the unbeaten
list last night by a red hot C.C.N.Y.
quintet, 54-52, nosed out Ken-
tucky's once-beaten Wildcats in
the battle of the ballot box.
St. John's (12-1) received 30
first place votes and a total of
696 points from a nationwide
panel of 88 sports writers and
sportscasters to beat out Ken-
tucky (7-1) by 66 points. The
Blue Grass lads were accorded
11 first place ballots and a total
of 630 points.
Bradley (10-2) a pre-season
favorite for top ranking, was vot-
ed third place with 485 points,
followed by Long Island Univer-
sity' "B1,aQkbirds (10-1). L.I.U.,
team with plenty of height, col-
lected 470 points and 18 first place
nominations. Bradley, incident-
ally, got only two No. 1 ballots but
was supported strongly for second
and third.

One of the top college hockey
aggregations in North Americat
will tangle with the Wolverine iceI
crewv this weekend, when thet
French -speaking University of1
Montreal Carabins move into the
Coliseum for a two game series
tomorrow and Saturday night.
The fast-skating Frenchmen
won the Queen's University
Trophylast year, the prized sym-
bol of the Canadian Intercollegi-
ate Hockey championship and1
also hold claim to International
collegiate supremacy with the
Thompson Trophy.
This year the Carabins have
another crack outfit as they are
currently tied for first place with
the University of Toronto in the
Canada's Intercollegiate Athletic
Union Hockey League.
The two squads have met twice
so far with Montreal blanking the
Blues, 5-0, in the first contest
and then succumbing to the
Toronto Sextet 12-7 in a wild-
scoring second game.
On the basis of these two games
and Michigan's hotly-contested
battles with Toronto before
Christmas, the weekend tussles
shape up as a pair of extremely
fine hockey exhibitions.
The Carabins, as other Cana-
dian squads, have the advantage
of being able to use their fresh-
men and graduate students and
consequently their team is studded
with three and four year veterans.
On the Wolverine side of the
picture unofficial statistics com-
piled over the first seven games
reveal that the Maize and Blue

will have to bank heavily on their
talented first line of Neil Celley,
Wally Grant. and Gil Burford to
offset the expected power of the
Montreal Lean.
Led by Burford's 12 goals and
10 assists, tLhis trio has amassed
29 of the total of 44 markers gar-
nared by the Wolverines thus far.
Celley has an 18 point total on
10 tallies and 8 assists, while team
Captain Grant has successfully
netted the disc seven times and
helped on nine others.
