Mann's Men
Lower Dash,
Relay Times
Sprinters Upset
Touted Thomas
By GEORGE FLINT
Michigan's lopsided victory over
Purdue in Saturday's initial dual
swimming meet of the season went
almost according to form, but the
few deviations from the expected
provided tank fans with the an-
swers to two important questions.
The speculation as to how strong
the Wolverines would be in the
sprint events was in some measure
answered by the encouraging per-
formances of Dick Martin, Dave
Neisch, and Tom Coates.
MOREOVER, the Michigan 300-
yard medley relay combo of Bernie
Kahn, Charlie Moss, and Dave
Tittle turned in an excellent early-
season time of 2: 53.3 in that
event. The conference record is
2:51.
The highly - touted Purdue
dashman, Charlie Thomas, fail-
ed to live up to the rave notices
as he wilted badly in the 100
yard free style and lost a close
one to Michigan's Martin in the
50.
Gus Stager came up with one of
his best days to be the Maize and
Blue's only double winner. Stager
turned in a creditable 2:11.8 in
the 220, besting teammate and
captain Matt Mann III, and cruis-
ing to an easy 4:54.3 win in the
440. Stager, who also defeated
Mann in the East-West meet in
Florida, looked to be the most
improved swimmer on the Wol-
verine squad.
* * * *
GEORGE EYSTER, who won
the diving event for the Wolver-
ines, startled the crowd with a
smooth performance of the most
difficult of dives, the forward
double twisting one and one-half,
pike position. Easily Eyster's best
dive, it earned the most points
and plaudits for the Michigan
contortionist.
The always-reliable Charlie
Moss established himself as a
conference contender in the
150 yard individual medley,
posting a rapid 1:33.5.
The only event in which the
Wolverines seemed noticieably
weak, the 200 yard breast stroke,
should improve, since Stew Elliott
tied up and swam far from his
best race. And it will be further
strengthened when Aussie ace
John Davis enters competition
next semester.
DO YOU KNOW. . . that during
the three-year period, 1938-40, that
Tom Harmon played for Michigan,
the Wolverines could never beat
the Golden Gophers of Minne-
sota?

'M' Sextet Melts Eastern
Collegiate Ice Opponents

By JIM PARKER
Vic Heyliger's hockey team is
back on partisan soil again after
leaving Eastern college ice fans
with a favorable opinion of Maize
and Blue athletic teams and of
Michigan-style play.
Despite being short-handed on
eleven occasions when Wolverines
were in the cooler, the Michigan
sextet dominated the play most of
the Princeton game.
THE CLOSE CALLING of the
misdemeanors cramped the Maize
and Blue noticeably . . . it was
reminiscent of the officiating at

Three Sophomores are current-
ly setting the pace for Michigan's
undefeated wrestling squad.
Larry Nelson, Dave Space and
Bill Stapp are undefeated this
season. Each man has recorded
three straight wins.
ALL THREE won their matches
in Saturday's route of Northwest-
ern, 21-9.
Nelson wrestling at 128, came
from behind in the third period
to defeat NU's George Halas,
9-6. The Soph star had regis-
tered two pins in his first two
matches.
Space took his third match of
the young season when he shut-
out Eddie Fox, 7-0, in a 136 pound
attraction.
* * *
STAPP, a 155 pounder from
Sausalito, California, won his third
victory Saturday night, via the
pin route, his second of the season.
Right behind the Soph lead-
ers, is veteran Michigan star,
Jim Smith, who came back from
his defeat in the Purdue meet
to score his first fall of the sea-
son against the Wildcat's, Bob
Ehlers.
Smith flashed some of his old
time form, as he completely dom-
inated the match before ending
it with the pin in 2:44 of the last
period.

Gil Burford warmed up for
the Princeton game by amazing
his teammates with phenomenal
shots in a series of pool match-
es in the afternoon . . . that
night he substituted his hockey
stick for his cue and bombarded
the Orange and Black's nets for
his four-goal hat trick.
During the Tiger contest the
sports announcer for the Prince-
ton radio station was praising Ross
Smith's fine defensive play . .
seconds later a flying puck from
the ice caused a spirited scramble
in the radio box . . . the disc came
accidently from the stick of none
other than defenseman Smith.

A LARGE DELEGATION of
alumni from Philadelphia and
suburban New Jersey came up for
the game . . . they provided a
warm reception for the traveling
Wolverines . . . also a formidable
Michigan cheering section at the
Tiger's rink.
At New Haven the next night
the Bulldogs of Yale University
gave the Maize and Blue a
tougher time.
Michigan's vaunted first line'
didn't combine to crash the Yale
nets until the third period . . . on'
a beautifully executed play the'
puck went from Burford to Neil
Celley to the Eli goal.. . the night
before the Burford-Celley-Grant
trio had racked up seven of Michi-
gan's eight tallies.

ter getting his first (and second)
goal of the season . . . defenseman
Graham Cragg also broke into the
scoring limelight for the first time
this year . . . he assisted Pelow
on his second goal.
Jack McDonald's 21 saves for
the night underrates his out-
standing work in the Michigan
nets . . . the colorful goalie
came through with several great
saves to help throttle the Yale
offense ... Bob Fleming, Smith
and Cragg took care of the rest.
Yale defenseman Frank Kitt-
redge took the honors for the
longest shot of the game . .. the
puck soared off into space and
bounded around in the steel roof
supports before coming down
again . . . then it almost hit one
of his teammates on the head ...
Al Bassey got a near miss when he
kicked a loose puck into the Bull-
dog goal . . . but the rules don't
allow it.
The Wolverines played before
Yale's first sellout crowd this year
... they were turning them away
at the door . .. at Princeton Mich-
igan proved a big drawing card but
just missed packing the house.

ED ULVESTAD
...felled by operation
Relay Team
Close Fourth
While their team mate, Ed Ul-
vestad, was being rushed to the
hospital for an emergency appen-
dectomy last Saturday night,
Coach Don Canham's two mile
relay team was running into stiff
competition in The Washington
Star Relays.
The thinclads finished fourth
in a race that was a thriller all
the way with only nine-tenths of
a second between them and the
winners.
* * *
THE WOLVERINE half-milers
had the lead at some point on each
of the four legs of the race, but
Captain Jus Williams, running a
beautiful anchor leg, was shaded
at the tape by three men.
The times for the evening were
virtually meaningless, since the
track was measured wrong.

By BILL CONNOLLY
For the second time in as many
years Michigan track squads have
lost a varsity record holder be-
cause of a sudden operation.
Last Saturday night, Ed Ulves-
tad, the best pole vaulter in Wol-
verine track history, underwent an
emergency operation for appendi-
citis.
* * *
ACCORDING TO Coach Don
Canham, Ulvestad will definitely
be lost for the entire indoor cam-
paign, and "probably" for the
outdoor season.
Said Michigan's track coach
yesterday, "We'll miss him as
much as we missed Fonville last
year."
He was referring to former
world's record holder Charlie Fon-
ville, who stepped off the sidelines
this season after having spent a,
year there subsequent to an oper-
ation in the fall of 1948.
* * *
BUT THE FIVE points that
Charlie will add to the team's
point total in Canham's 1950 cam-
paign will only serve to offset the
deficit brought about by the loss
of an expected five points from
Ulvestad.
The blond - haired jumper
earned the title of "Michigan's
best" when he cleared the bar
at an official height of 13 feet,
ten and three-fourths inches last
season against Ohio State.
He cleared fourteen feet the
following week in the Chicago Re-
lays, but this height was not offi-
cially recognized since it was not

ULVESTAD TWICE vaulted to
victory in the Penn Relays to win
the coveted first-place.
Ulvestad twice earned the co-
veted first-place slot in the clas-
sic Penn Relays, vaulting to vic-
tory in 1948 and 1949.
In addition to being an excellent
athlete, Ed is a fine student. Last
year at the close of the season he
won an award that is presented
annually to the Wolverine track-
man who has attained the highest
scholastic average for the pre-
ceeding two semesters. His average
is well above a three-point.
* * *
THIS SEASON would have given
Ulvestad his fourth year as a var-
sity track man. His competition
began in his freshman year, 1947,
when the frosh rule was still in
suspension.
He earned a letter that year,
and had he been available this
season, he would have been one
of the few remaining Michigan
atheletes with four letters in one
sport.
