promises to give the Wolverine
natators an indication of the com-
petition they can expect in col-
lege circles after the Christmas
The 100 yard breast stroke
race is expected to provide the
keenest competition of the eve-
ning. Charlie Moss, member of
the Michigan team last year,

Stu Elliot, present Michigan
breaststroker, will give Moss the
greatest trouble, while John
Davies, member of Australia's
1948 Olympic team, and Rusty
Carlisle cannot be counted out.
THE DIVING competition pro-
mises to be sharp with Alex Canja,
captain of the 1947-48 natators,
George Eyster, from last year's
team, and Jim Hartman and
Frank Keller of this year's team

freshmen Tom Brenner and Don
Hill in the 50 yard free style.

TIED UP-Michigan Defenseman, Bob Heathcott, is well-covered by two Princeton players after
getting off a shot at the Tiger goalie, Jim O'Neill in last night's 11-6 Wolverine victory. Heathcott's
effort was unsuccessful, however, as the puck rebounded off to the right.
Wolverine Cagers Face Strong Butler Quintet
By BOB ROSENMAN
Michigan's puckmen, sparked by
the great performance of sopho-
more John McKennell, walloped
the Tigers of Princeton, 11-6, in a
high-scoring battle at the Coli-
seum last night.
McKennell, a wiry redhead from
Toronto playing only his second
game for the Maize and Blue, sank
four goals, three of them coming

within 4 minutes in the third
period. In addition, he assisted
on another Wolverine talley to
lead the scoring parade.
* * *
ALSO HIGHLIGHTING t h e
Wolverines' impressive win were
Neil Celley and Al Bassey who
chipped in with two counters
apiece to aid in Michigan's second
triumph of the young season.
Earl Keyes, John Matchefts,
and Paul Pelow contributed
Michigan's other three' goals.
High man for Princeton was Bill
Gall who had 2 goals and 2 as-
sists in the Tigers' losing cause.
Once again the Michigan defense
showed that it would require more
working on, but much of the dif-
ficulty in stopping the Tiger at-
tack can be attributed to the ab-
sence of star defenseman Eddie,
May from the Wolverine lineup.
THE TIGERS, whom Michigan
will battle in the series finale at
the Coliseum tonight at 8 p.m.,
jumped off to an early 1-0 lead,
but it was short-lived as McKen-
nell scored on a 5-footer.
The Wolverines quickly added
three more goals to take a 4-1
lead, but Princeton roared back
to tie the score at 4-4, before
Bassy tallied late in the period
to make it 5-4, Michigan.
In the second period, Princeton
brought the score to 5-5, and 6-6,
before Bassey again broke the
deadlock with a goal.
THE FINAL period was all Mc-
Kennell. After Celley had put the
Wolverines in front, 8-6, the ag-
gressive youngster scored three
times in rapid succession, his first
coming on a beautiful thrust in
which he maneuvered past a de-
fenseman, faked the Tiger goalie
completely out of position, and
slipped the puck past him to give
the Wolverines a 3-goal cushion.
Minutes later, McKennel tallied
again, this time breaking through
two astonished Tiger defensemen
to beat the Princeton goalie once
more. And, just 44 seconds later,
he poked in a rebound to end
Michigan's scoring for the even-
ing, the scoreboard reading 11-6:

little boys" will take to the court
tonight in Indianapolis against a
young Butler five in an attempt

The Wolverines, fresh from
their first win last Tuesday night
against Marquette, will once again
have to ,do without the services
of a key man.
THIS TIME the absentee is Bill
Putich, the chunky little speedster
who provided the spark in last
Tuesday's game. Putich spent last
week working out with the grid
squad and consequently missed all
basketball practice sessions.
Tom Tiernan will fill the va-
cated guard slot, teaming up
with the recuperated Charlie
Murray. Bob Olson, who only
last week was moved from for-
ward to guard to take Murray's
place, will return to his former
position for the Butler clash.
Olson will team up with Jim
Skala and Leo Vanderkuy to form
the starting first line.
FOR THE Battling Bulldogs
from Indiana, where they claim
real basketball is played, the con-
test will be their chance to make
the Michigan quintet their fourth

The Butler boys have already
knocked off Ohio State, North-
western and Iowa, all of whom
are considered to be the strong-

Moreover, the Bulldogs will be
out to"* avenge last year's 73-49
defeat and to even up the series,
which now stands at seven games
to five, Michigan's favor.
FOR THE FIRST time in three
years Coach Tony Hinkle lacks a
star the caliber of "Buckshot"
O'Brien and Jimmy Doyle, recent
Butler greats. But Hinkle expects
his young squad to play top notch
ball when they accumulate a lit-

will give them a slight height ad-
vantage over the Maize and Blue.
Bob Jackson, six feet four inch
center, teams up with John Hall
and Orvis Burdsall, six footers, to
round out the forward line.
Two smaller boys, Walter O'-
Brien (no relation to Buckshot)
and Art Fougerhousse will per-
form the back court duties.
ON THE SPOT-Michigan looks to Leo Vanderkuy, colorful
center and leading scorer, to show the way against Butler's
Bulldogs tonight in Indianapolis. Vanderkuy has accumulated 44
points in the three contests thus far.
