Wolverine Triumph Gains
Split in Two-Game Series
Smith, Celley, Burford, Heathcott,
Tally Goals in Registering Seventh

The Wolverine hockey club
jumped back into the win column
by slapping down Montreal's Cara-
bins, 5-3, at the Coliseum last
After dropping the initial con-
test Friday night, 4-3, in the two
game series, Michigan's powerful
attack swung into high gear to
give the Maize and Blue a split
with the classy Canadian club.
FIVE WOLVERINES successful-
ly blasted the Montreal defense to
give Coach Vic Heyliger's charges
their five counters.
Aside from the Canadian shift
in goalies from Friday night's
Marcel Auger to George Beau-
cage, both squads used their
same units as in the previous
After the Maize and Blue stav-
ed off two concentrated Carabin
drives that gave Wolverine goalie
Jack McDonald a brisk workout
early in the first period, Michi-
gan's stellar defensive star Ross
Smith took a flip from Al Bassey
and drilled home a 30 foot shot to
post the first marker of the game
IT WAS A REPEAT perform-
ance for Smith as he also broke
the scoreless tie in the first period
The first period had by far
the hottest offensive drives as
McDonald made 15 saves and
Beaucage stopped 10 shots.
The Wolverines point margin
was expanded early in the second
period after Andre Charest was
directed to the penalty box for in-
terference. Standing directly in
front of the rigging after taking
a pass from Gil Burford, Neil
Celley penetrated the Carabin
crease for the second marker of
FROM HERE ON IN, the second
frame was the scene of fancy Mon-
treal stick handling and passing
as the Canadians quickly closed
the breach. Assisted by George
Hotte, Dennis Lazure drilled home
the first Carabin tally by snapping
a 15 foot shot that wound up be-
When Smith stepped into the
penalty box at 14:07, Montreal's
slick offense rolled down the
ice to tie up the game when
Jean Giguere's 25 foot marker
landed in the Wolverine net at
15:06. George Emblem handled
Breaking the 2-2 tie in.the open-
ing minutes of the third frame,
Montreal's Ray Flynn blasted
home a six foot marker on an
assist from Andre Charest at 4:20.
BUT THE WOLVERINE offen-
sive unit was yet to be heard from
as Burford flipped a backhanded
20 toot shot into the Mpntreal
nets at 6:18 to tie up the game.
CHICAGO-(P)-The Big Ten
Conference yesterday changed its
two-minute rule in basketball to
benefit a fouling team.
Commissioner Kehneth L.
(Tug) Wilson announced that
henceforth a foul against a shoot-
er in the last two minutes will re-
sult in only one free throw if the
basket is made.
PREVIOUSLY, two free throws
were awarded regardless of
whether or not the basket was
made. This made it possible for
a fouled team to amass as many
as five points, in one crack.
Five points could be made if a
fouled shooter made his basket,
sank his first free throw and
had his missed second gift shot
tipped in for a basket.
The Big Ten is playing a modi-
fication of the controversial na-
tional two-minute rule which en-
ables a fouled team to keep pos-
session after free throwing. The
Big Ten keeps the ball in play,
although two free throws are
charged against all defensive
fouls beyond the exception fixed

LOS ANGELES-(P-Ben Ho-
gan fired a two under par 69 for
a 36-hole total of 142 yesterday to
signal a threat in the Los Angeles
Open Golf Tournament in his ini-
tial comeback try.
Hogan, clipping a stroke off par
with a spectacular 60-foot slant-
ing putt on the fifteenth hole and
another with an eight-foot putt on
the seventeenth, improved on his
73 fired yesterday.
JERRY BARBER of Pasadena
shot his second successive sub-par
round to lead the field at the half-
way point of the tournament. He
had rounds of 69-68-137.
Two strokes back of Barber
was another dark horse, Henry
Ransom of St. Andrews, Ill. The
former Texan, a veteran of more
than a decade of tournament
golf, fired the lowest round of
the tournament to date--a 33-
34-67 for 139.
Ransom was the only one stand-
ing in the five stroke spread be-
tween Barber and Hogan and Ells-
worth Vines. Vines shot a 73 to
tie Hogan at 142 blows.
A stiff fight looms ahead in the
18 hole round today and tomorrow,
but Hogan is still the focal point
Gone today was the drama and
tenseness of his return to compe-
tition yesterday for the first time
since he was badly injured in a carI

Tidwell Stars as Rebels Take
Senior Bowl Game, 22-13
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., - (R') -
Travis Tidwell spun a football
web of passes that carried his
Rebel all-stars to a 22-13 victory
over the Yankees in the senior
bowl game yesterday.
Charlie Justice of North Caro-

Methodist lived up to their press

Eddie Lebaron of College of the

Key kick returns by Justice and
Doak Walker added to the thrills.
Walker started the Yanks off to
their first score with a runback
for 57 yards.
JUSTICE opened the way to
two Rebel touchdowns. He went
26 to begin the first drive and 29
to start the last.

LOS ANGELES-(A)-Joe Louis
said yesterday he may consider
boxing Ezzard Charles for the
heavyweight championship next
summer after he returns from an
exhibition tour in this country and
"I should know by then if I
am in condition to box Charles,"
the retired champion was quot-
ed by his press agent. "I will
definitely decide after the tour."
Louis was in good form Friday
night in his exhibition with Wil-
lie Bean. His next bout on the
tour is with Jim Flood in Seattle
Tuesday. His swing through the
country ends Feb. 7 at Miami,
where he meets Johnny Holman of
tieing up elusive Frank Calsbeek,
center for the Iowa squad. He
kept Calsbeek off balance most of
the evening and the Hwkeiye
scoring leader left the boards with
only eight points to his credit.
DON McINTOSH had a field
day at center and forward and
led the Michigan scorers with 21
points. He left the floor on fouls
with three minutes and fifty sec-
onds left in the game. As he did
Bob Clifton ran over to shake his
hand. The last foul gave Clifton
a shot, which he made.
Mack Suprunowicz tied with
Hal Morrill in the runners-up
slot with 11 points. But Supey's
court play was outstanding.
Time after time he threaded the
ball through the Iowa defenses,
feeding McIntosh, VandcrKuy,
and Doyle under the basket.
On one play Suprunowicz faked
out an Iowa guard and drove in on
the right. As he reached the free
throw circle, he shot the ball in to
Bill Doyle who pushed the ball off4
the board and in for two points.
VANDERKUY SPUN for 10
points, but his best work was on
defense. One favorite Iowa play
was to lob the ball from shooting
position at guard towards the bas-
ket. But the purpose was not to
shoot but to make a pass to Cals-

play worked only once all night.
Michigan built up her halftime
lead of 35-21 to a full 20 points,
but it was mostly the reserves who
did it. The regular five kept the
14 point lead intact, but the re-

Yesterday was a busy day at
Yost Field House.
The doors were opened at 12:00
by Coach Don Canham's track
men who found it necessary to
hold their weekly time trials about
three hours earlier than usual to
clear the way for the Wolverine
wrestling team-who in turn gave
way to the opening Big Ten game
of the 1950 Basketball season.
PACING themselves through
their respective specialties, the
thinclads were somewhat handi-
capped by the fact that they have
been able to work out for only
four days since returning from
The outstanding race of the
day was the half-mile, in which
Shel Capp sliced the tape just
one-tenth of a second ahead of
Aaron Gordon to win, as George
Jacobi finished third.
Gordon led the field through-
out the race, but Capp, who had
been matching him stride-for-
stride all the way, broke off the
last turn with a blast of speed,
caught him in the stretch and
nosed him out at the tape.

In the lows, Bruno Boelster,

the last hurdle in his heat after
leading all the way.
The sprinters ran through a
rugged workout/ with Art Henrie
setting the pace in all events.
Henrie was followed across the
finish line by Pierre Miller and
John Wilcox, who battled it out
step-for-step in each race.
AT THE CLOSE of the workout,
five relay teams composed of four
men each, competed in a mile
race. The teams are picked ac-
cording to each runner's specialty,

squad, milers on another, etc.
