THE MICHIGAN DAILY
TWO WINLESS HOOP TEAMS:
Blocks Continuance of Pact
'M' Meets Marquette Tonight
By LARRY SPERLING
Coach Ernie McCoy will get
a good idea of how Michigan will
stack up against Big Ten basket-
ball competition this season When
his charges face Marquette at
Yost Field House tonight at 7:30.
The Hilltoppers move into Ann
Arbor after three straight losses
to Western Conference foes: Wis-
consin (49-42), Illinois (66-47),
and Ohio State (77-56).
THESE EARLY season losses
may be partially discounted be-
cause of the Marquette starting
five's youth and inexperience.,
They are billed as a sopho-
more team with height and
speed, better than average
shooting ability, and a lot of

Commissioner A. B. Chandler last
night announced his intention to
retire May 1, 1952.
At a secret joint meeting of the
American and National leagues
today three ballots failed to give
Chandler a new contract.
ON THE FIRST ballot the vote
was 9-7 for renewal; the second
was 8-8 and the third was 9-7. !
"It is my intention at the mo-
ment to fill out my term. It is
my present intention to retire
and let the club owners see if
they can get somebody else to
fill the office."
Chandler made the bombshell
announcement at a press confer-
ence in his hotel room.
Twelve of the 16 club owners
must agree to a new contract be-
fore Chandler could stay on. He
has held the job since April, 1945.

GRIDDERS BACK TO WORK:
Wolverines Bein Rose Bowl Practice
CHICAGO-(AP)-The Rose Bowl'
game, after next New Year's day,
remains a bone of policy conten-
tion between the Big Ten and Pa-
cific Coast Conference.
There were two developments on
the bowl game yesterday as far as
the Big Ten was concerned in
closing its annual winter meet-
* * *
THE FIRST was that the faculty
representatives indicated they will
renew the five-year bowl pact
which pact expires Jan. 1, only
if they can continue their rule
which limits a Big Ten team to
one Rose Bowl appearance in three
years. The PC has no restriction
and seeks a compromise for both
loops which would permit an ev-
ery-other-year appearance of any
The other was that the ath-
letic directors will try to arrange
a meeting between full repre-
sentations of the two conferences
on the subject after the west
coast league's winter meeting the
first week of January.
A faculty representative spokes-
man, Kenneth Little of Wiscon-
sin, said it was his opinion that
the Big Ten would not subscribe to
any attempt by the PCC to coax
the Western conference to drop its

any effort to change the present
set-up could result in a "stand-
off" in the Big Ten. A majority
vote is required, and Little said
present indications are the con-
ference would ballot 7 to 3 in fa-
vor of renewal on the present ba-
The athletic directors intend
to poll the conference to see if
a full complement of faculty
representatives will join them in
meeting a similar PCC group to
thresh out the bowl subject.
At yesterday's closing session,
the athletic directors also voted to
renew the contract of Commis-
sioner K. L. (Tug) Wilson, subject
to working out details on salary
and term of office.
The athletic directors Satur-
day granted the commissioner
new powers and set a 10-year
maximum on the term of office.
With his added authority, Wil-
son now can punish as well as
investigate violations of recruit-
ing and subsidization of athletes.

merly had sole power to penalize

"I didn't know they were tak-
ing a vote," he declared.
Asked if he would be a candi-
date for the commissioner's job
again, he emphasized:
"I'm not a candidate ever."

Vic Heyliger's Michigan sextet,
victorious in its initial outing of
the season against the Detroit Au-
to Club, will be without the ser-
vices of defenseman Eddie May for
two weeks because of injuries sus-
NNW tained last Friday evening.
The hard-charging defenseman
suffered two broken ribs when he
crashed into the goal post. May
will miss two home games with
Princeton this week end and two
home tilts against Western On-
tario on December 21 and 22.
HEYLIGER hopes that May will
rejoin the squad for the eastern
jaunt, which includes tussles with
Boston College and Boston Uni-
versity. The traveling contingent
will leave Ann Arbor on Tuesday,

but three defensemen available
for duty against the Tigers Fri-
day and Saturday.
At the moment Heyliger doesn't
plan to move a member of the for-
ward lines back to the rear guard.
This means that the trio of Gra-
ham Cragg, Bob Heathcott, and
Alex McClellan will share the hea-
vy burden of keeping the Michigan
goal area free of Nassau attackers.

BECAUSE OF May's injury and
the ineptness of the Maize and
Blue in clearing the puck from
their defensive zone, Heyliger
plans plenty of work for the de-
fense in practice this week.
The ice coach is satisfied with
the work of goalie Hal Downes,
who after a shaky start Friday
became a stalwart in the nets
as the game progressed.
NO IMMEDIATE changes will be
made in the forward lines which
performed to advantage against
the Motor City sextet. Particularly
outstanding were the two sopho-
more centers John Matchefts and

man Bob Heathcott dented the

head McKennell didn't score a'
goal, he performed with marked
excellence in the playmaking de-
