Michigan a stiff battle before

Toronto Wins;
Rangers Battle
Bruins to Tie
By The Associated Press
League-leading Toronto found
the Montreal Canadiens an easy
mark last night at Toronto, as
they outclassed the boys from the
Province de Quebec, ¢-1.
In so doing, the Leafs upped
their lead over the second-place
Red Wings of Detroit to a still-
meager six points.
S* *
THE WINGS were idle last
In other league action, the
New York Rangers pleased a
home town crowd by coming
from behind to tie the Boston
Bruins, 4-4.
A former Detroit star, Bill
Quackenbush, was New York's gol-
den boy last night.
His third-period goal gave the
Rangers the tie over the victory-
starved Bruins.
But the tie didn't pull the Ran-
gers from Manhattan out of the
dark depths of the National
League cellar.

Michigan Grid Forces

Michigan football team pulled into
the land of the roses yesterday, but
the boys weren't given much time
to sniff flowers.

COACH Bennie Oosterbaan ac-
knowledged the courtesies, then
hustled the squad away to shake
loose their train legs and get down
to the business of preparing for

the clash with the University of
California in the Rose Bowl.
Ooosterbaan had nothing but
smiles for the weather. It was
bright and warm. He pointed out
that the Big Ten champions had
been shut in Yost field house at
Ann Arbor except for one out-
door workout since beginning
workouts for the , postseason
game with the Pacific Coast
Conference champions.
Michigan has only 11 practice
sessions remaining under the joint,
regulated training program for the
rival teams, and Oosterbaan said
he was anxious to have his play-
ers "bang their heads together"
without further delay.
CALIFORNIA writers, inquiring
into the Michigan prospects, were
told the invaders don't have too
much information on the Bears.
Best source, Oosterbaan said,
was game films on California's 20-
14 loss to Northwestern in the
Rose Bowl in 1949, and the 17-14
defeat by Ohio State here last New
Year's Day.

Michigan's promising track team
presented Coach Don Canham with
an early Christmas present as they
ran through a brisk set of time
"{trials at Yost Fieldhouse last night.
..{..;}"..:.. Team captain Don Hoover was
" .>.the top performer in the tradition-
.al pre-Christmas festivities with
a pair of wins in the low and high
hurdles. He ran the latter in 8.2.

BUT HIS was not the only ex-
cellent performance.
The Wolverines' "old reliable",
distance man Don McEwen, ran
one of his better miles in the top
event of the evening, with fresh-
man John Ross closing brilliant-
ly to take second place. Aaron

For Michigan, Vic Heyliger will

posed of Gil Burford, John Met-

a leg injury in the Princeton se-
ries, and he is not expected to be
at full strength for the two On-
tario games.

FOLLOWING this, the Varsity
journeys to Evanston to meet weak
Marquette and even weaker North-
western in a triangular contest.
The Wildcats lack strength in
every division and have little to
work with from last year's fresh-
man squad.
The Wolverines will then look
for a victory over an up-and-
coming Iowa squad at Iowa City.
The Hawkeye's will be helped by
a power-laden freshman squad
which contains many Iowa State
high school champs.
After this, Michigan will open
a home stand that will see three
formidable Big Ten powers on the
varsity mats.
ILLINOIS will pave the way for
Michigan State and Ohio State
when they visit Yost Field House
on Feb. 10 The Illini don't appear
to be too strong, mainly because
it is coach B. R. Patterson's first
year at the coaching helm.
Michigan State, who handed

the Wolverines their worst de-
feat of the season last year 18-6,
will probably be one of the
Maize and Blue's toughest op-
ponents. The Spartans are
strong in all weight divisions
and have a majority of last
year's veterans back.
Michigan then plays host to
Ohio State whom they defeated
in regular competition last season
14-13. The Buckeyes' evenly-bal-
anced mat men should be every
bit, as strong as last year's aggre-
up their season with the Big Ten
Championship Meet at Evanston
and the NCAA Meet at Lehigh.
At this early date, it seems that
Michigan, Purdue; Ohio State,
Michigan State, and Minnesota
are the 'big guns' in the Big Ten,
any one of which could cop the
crown. Iowa figures to be the
dark horse.

DETROIT - (IP) - Raymond
(Buddy) Parker, who started his
National Football League career as
a player with the Detroit Lions in
1935, was named yesterday their
head coach.
The 37-year-old Texan was ele-
vated from his Backfield Coach's
job with the Lions to succeeed Al-
vin "Bo" McMillin, who resigned
Tuesday as Head Coach and Gen-
eral Manager.
* * *
THE LION'S front office an-
nounced that End Coach George
Wilson and Line Coach Aldo For-
te, who rounded out the Lion's
staff last season, also signed one-
year contracts todays.
Salary terms vyere not disclosed,
but a usually reliable source said
that Parker signed for considerably
less than the $30,000-a-year Mc-
Millin was getting.
* * .*
MC MILLIN, who still had two
years left on his five year contract
when he resigned, will be paid the
full $60,000 due him, the source
Parker came to the Lions as
Backfield Coach last season af-
ter 13 years service with the
Chicago Cardinals-first as a
player and then as Head Coach.
He was head Coach for the Car-
dinals in 1949, but resigned after
the club ended the year with a
5-6-1 record.
Parker played his college foot-
ball at Centenary (Shreveport,
La.) before he joined fhe Lions. In
his first season with the Lions,

Detroit won the only National
Football League title it ever got.
McMillin told newsmen he had-
n't "started looking for a job yet."
He added, "I thought I was doing
a pretty good job for the Lions, but
this is a funny business."
USC's Alumni
Eject Cravath
LOS ANGELES-(IP)-The nine-
year-old coaching regime of Jeff
Cravath sank at the University of
Southern California yesterday, tor-
pedoed by powerful "win or else"
alumni sharpshooters.
Cravath abandoned the stricken
ship, effective Jan. 1, climaxing an
anti-Cravath, old grad offensive
that mounted with intensity as the
Trojan grid fortunes wallowed and
pitched during the past season.
As salvage, he will be paid an
estimated $30,000 w h i c h the
wealthy alumni agreed to dig up
to buy off the two years remaining
on his contract.

ing finish, which netted him a
freshman record for the distance.
Sophomore George Christianson,
who Canham calls the "most im-
proved" on the Michigan squad,
ran consistently in two of the dis-
tance events, the 880 and the two
mile, to take a third and second,
.* * *
BILL .HICKMAN, .long-legged
junior, ran a well-paced race to
take the two-mile ahead of Chris-
tianson's challenge. Buzz Guise
was third.
The quarter-mile, where the
Wolverines have been relatively
weak in the past few years, turn-
ed out to be one of the better
races of the night. Jack Carroll
outlasted soph Al Rankin and
junior Chuck Whitaker to give
the freshmen one of their three
first places.
Bill Konrad turned in a time of
6.5 in the 60-yard dash, but had
to lunge to beat out stocky Terry
Nulf. Dave Stinson, a burly grid-
der, was third.
CARRY IVERSON won the 660
and Nils Nielson took the shot put
at a mark over 50 feet for the oth-
er two freshman first places.
In other field events,.Tommy
Emblad topped 13 feet to win the
pole vault, and explosive Horace
Coleman leaped more than 22
feet for broad jump laurels.
With Whitaker running the 440,
George Jacobi had things his way
in the half mile, although John
Linquist and Christianson chal-
lenged strongly.
The team totals for the trials
were 89 for the junior-senior group
and 73 for the freshman-sopho-
more aggregation. The varsity
group looked particularly good for
this time of year.
One dull note was sounded last
night with the news that Art Hen-
rie, veteran dashman, may be call-
ed to duty with a Romulus unit of
the Air National Guard. The unit
is scheduled for activation on Feb-
ruary 1. If Henrie goes he'll be the
first Michigan varsity athlete to be
called during the present world
