M'Natators
Initial Trial
Tune-up for AAU
Test Next Week
Assistant swimming coach
Johnny McCarthy will take elev-
en Wolverine swimmers into De-
troit this afternoon to compete in
a Michigan AAU meet at the Jew-
ish Center there.
Five varsity members and six
freshmen, who will swim unat-
tached, are entered in four con-
tests, two of which are for state
AAU championships. The races
will serve as a tune-up for next
week's gala AAU meet to be held
in the IM pool here.
THE TWO championship events
are the 40 yard and the 400 yard
free style, while some of the men
will also appear in the 100 yard
free style and the 120 yard indi-
vidual medley.
Senior Bob Ryberg and Jim
White a junior, will lead three
freshmen, Don Ferguson, Peter
Bagrow and Tom Benner, into
the 40 yard championship. They
will be joined by sophomore
Johnny Reis in the 100 yard op-
en event.
In the 400 yard championship
test, Michigan's promising sopho-
more from South America, Co-
lumbian Luis Childs, will com-
pete for honors along with fresh-
men Ted Burrows and Jerry Nay.

BURROWS, NAY, and Fergu-
son, and another freshman, Barry
Wayburn, will then test their abil-

Picks Wahl

Michigan's Captain and star
tackle, Al. Wahl was named on
the second string of the Sport-
ing News All-American team

He was the only Wolverine
to be named by the more than
300 sportwriters and , sports
broadcasters who selected the
squad.
will make him, in effect, a second
field judge. The conference expects
the enlarged alignment of officials
will better "box" plays for obser-
vation of possible rules' infrac-
tions.
THE SECOND DAY of the con-
ference's winter meeting was fair-
ly routine. Such important sub-
jects as renewal of the Rose Bowl
agreement, how to meet military
draft inroads, and a stand on the
so-called "sanity code" will await
tomorrow's session to be attended
by presidents of the member in-
stitutions.
The faculty representatives
and athletic directors cleared
two Indiana football players
charged with violation of con-
ference eligibility rules. The
Hoosier gridders were guard Joe
Balabon and tackle Ed Bosak.

The football coaches recom-
mended to the National Collegi-
ate Association rules committee
that the fair catch rule be re-
instituted in the collegiate code.
They also suggested that the
clock-starting rules be fixed so
that the clock will start at the
time of play on all free kick sit-
uations, and when the ball is
ready for play in all other in-
stances.
The coaches, without naming
names, also expressed curiosity
over the. rapid manner in which
television films of their games were
appearing in rival football camps.
They suggested a tighter supervi-
sion over distribution of such
films.
The faculty representatives, in
a separate afternoon session, stu-
died proposed renewal of the Rose
Bowl pact with the Pacific Coast
Conference but made no comment
to the press. They also reviewed a
report of a six-man committee on
proposed revision of the duties and
powers of Commissioner Wilson.

New Champs To Be Crowned In Dorm Play

New champions are certain to
be crowned in two of the four
Intramural Residence Hall sports
being played at the present time.

king, and Michigan House, which
took the 1949 water polo crown,

HOWEVER Michigan and Hay-
den are still very much in the
running to retain their '49 titles
in volleyball and handball, re-
spectively.
TheHaydenrhandballersshave
chalked up three straight shut-
outs over League C competition,
and they are almost certain to
clinch a first place playoff berth
with one more win.
Dave Langer and Dick Dennis
in the singles and the Tony Pa-
parella-Phil Hunt doubles team
have made the defending champs
tough to dethine.

HAYDEN'S chief threat should
come from a powerful Hinsdale
quartet, led by Bill Riekels who
has allowed opponents only six
points in six games.
Dick Aster, Clem Arrison, and
Dale Hansen round out the

Hinsdale squad which has
clinched first place in League D
with three shutout victories.
Williams and Adams can claim
the remaining two top playoff
spots in League A and B, respec-
tively, with one more triumph
apiece. First place playoff con-
testants have been determined in
each of the four volleyball leagues.
* * *
THE COACHING of Bob Olsen
is largely responsible for the play-
off position held by Michigan's
current volleyball title holders.
Olsen's organization and opera-
tion of the defending champs
helped them win 17 of 18 contests
while topping all League B com-
petition.
The sextet of Dale .Schuckt-
neckt, Peon Krumholtz, Don
Bremner, Jim Peck, Milt Landau
and Dick Peereles boosted Tyler
to the championship of League C.
Adams, as champion of League
A, rounds out the quartet.

Handball held the limelight on
the Professional Fraternity sports
scene this week, as league play
went into the quarter-finals,
Nu Sigma Nu, last year's win-
ner, got off to a flying start by
downing the Phi Chi's. The Nu's
team is bolstered by two veterans
of last year's competition, John
Harm and Dave Standeford,
LAST SEASON'S runners-up,
the Law Club 'A' team, kept in the
thick of the fight, gaining a for-
feit decision from Psi Omega. An-
other quarter-final pairing puts
Delta Sigma Pi against Delta

By GEORGE FLINT
For the second year in a row,
Michigan's grid squad named a
senior fullback as its most valu-
able player.
Lat season it was Dick Kemp-
thorn, one of the great Wolverine
lnebackers of recent years. This
year it's Don Dufek, Michigan's
leading ground-gainer and scorer,
who received the honor from his
mates after a brilliant and con-
sistent season.
DUFEK WILL compete with
eight other Big Ten players for
,the Chicago Tribune's annual
.most valuable award, and looks to
be in a good position to make a
strong showing.
All the 185-pound plunger
from Oak Park, Illinois did for
the Maize and Blue in 1950 was
to pick up 589 yards in 151
tries for a 3:9 average; catch
eight passes for another 140
yards; and score seven touch-
downs for a 42 point total.
Dufek's main competition in the
Tribune's balloting for the West-'
ern Conference's top team man
should come from Ohio State's
nomination, triple-threat half-
back Vic Janowicz, and from Illi-
nois end Tony Klimek.
* * *
JANOWICZ, however, is a jun-
or, and thus will have less chance
at the award than the senior
nominees on the list. Klimek
scored the Illini's only touchdown
in Michigan's 7-0 loss to Ray Eli-
ot's team.
If Dufek can best the top
among the Big Ten gridders,
he'll receive a silver football,
emblematic of the Hub City
paper's award.
Dufek rose to the heigths of
conference football from virtual
obscurity.
HE WASN'T even invited back
for the fall training table as a
sophomore, but came around any-

on the outside catching the eye
of the Michigan coaching staff.
In the 1949 season he was the
regular fullback, and helped
spark the Wolverines to their
third straight conference cham-
pionship-a tie with Ohio State.
* * *
THE NEARLY indestructible
Dufek was the most consistent
runner for Michigan as the Wol-
verines made their story book
drive for the conference champ-
ionship and the Rose Bowl bid.
Dufek was only injured seri-
ously in one game-and that
was the last one. Up to that
Ohio State contest, he was the
one Wolverine running back
who wasn't plagued by the my-
riad aches and pains that kept
trainer Jim Hunt busy.
He'll be counted on once again
to live up to his great reputation
when the Wolverines face Pappy
Waldorf's California Bears on
January 1.
Other nominees for the Big
Ten's most valuable player:
Wisconsin - Robert Radcliffe,
fullback
Minnesota - Wayne Robinson,
center
Northwestern - Chuck 1iagmann,
1end
Iowa - Harold Bradley, tackle
Indiana - Bobby Robertson, half-
back
Purdue - James Janosek, tackle

Hawaiians Close To Success
In Defense of Volleyball Title

Last year's Indepedent League
volleyball champions moved an-
other step closer to a successful
defense of their crown in this
week's intramural action which
saw three teams move into play-
off berths.
The Hawaiians, attempting to
repeat their 1949 success, joined
Michigan Co-op and Mealmarter
aggregations in qualifying for the
hotly contested playoff spots, as
they registered a forfeit win over
the Internationals.
THE POWERFUL Hawaiian
outfit has presented an invincible
front to all of its foes thus far
and have yet to be ,scored upon
in league II competition.
Both the Mealmarters and
Michigan Co-op teams had to
overcome strong opponents in
securing the right to enter the

The Co-op group squeezed by
a tough Newman Club squad, and
a stubborn Presbyterian team
forced the Mealmarters to the
limit before bowing out of the
race.
THE BATTLE for the fourth
playoff position will be decided
next week, with the Foresters,
present league III leaders, hav-
ing the inside track.
Handball competition will be
resumed next week and a new
champion is certain,since last
year's titleholder, Robert Owen

ball play. The Architects and the

By the spring of 1949, while
