THE MICHIGAN DAILY
ON THE SPOT
By BILL CONNOLLY
Daily Sports Editor
HERE AND THERE with past and present Wolverines:
Now that he's concluded his collegiate football career with an
outstanding Rose Bowl performance, ,two professional coaches are
deeply interested in Michigan's ace passer, CHUCK ORTMANN .. .
They are Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns and George Halas of
the Chicago Bears. Both, incidentally, think-he's potential T-formation
material ... Even though he's worked neither under a T nor as a
quarterback, either of these pro coaches are reportedly anxious to
convert him to quarterback to fit him into their famed T-formation
At the recent Rose Bowl game, Brown said: "I haven't seen
a college passer with the wrist action that Ortmann has in a
longtime . . . that's all I care aout. A boy who can flip passes
like he can . . that's what I'm looking for. The rest is up to
me, and I'm primarily a teacher .. I can teach him the rest of
it. If he's smart enough to maintain high grades at Michigan,
he certainly could absorb the details of quarterbacking."
Says Halas: "Ortmann is tall, quick, he cap throw and he's also
big enough and strong enough to be a real threat as a runner. He'd
be very valuable as a T-quarterback in our system."
Halas also likes 1950 captain AL WAHL as a tackle or a guard.
L either player, however, has ye- expressed any interest in pro ball.

NCLUDING THE 1951 Rose Bowl victory, MICHIGAN GRID TEAMS
In the past 10 years have won 172 games, lost 17 and tied four,
scoring 2,176 points to 801 for opponents.
DON McEWEN, the Wolverines' famed distance runner, came
up with this one on the Rose Bowl trip, as the football team viewed
the Grand Canyon on the return journey. Standing on the brink of
the mighty chasm, McEwen gazed thoughtfully into its mile-deep
depths for several minutes.
"What do you think of it, Don?" he was asked.
"What a spot for used razor blades!" he cracked.
* * * *
FORMER TACKLE for Morningside College at Sioux City, Iowa,
University President ALEXANDER G. RUTHVEN, viewed the
New Year's Day game with great interest. He was making his first
trip to the Rose Bowl this year and added high praise for WAHL and
tackle TOM JOHNSON.
"I watched them every minute and I thought they were lagni-
ficent," he said.
* * * *
HAPPIEST PERSON to return from the Rose Bowl trip was MRS.
DELMAS OOSTERBAAN, wife of the Michigan football coach ...
"Now BENNIE will start eating again and he won't be pacing the
floor at 3 a.m., unable to sleep, and both of us will be able to regain
some of the weight we lost."
* * * *
370 M HARMON, former Wolverine All-American has made as many
as 17 radio and TV shows a week in Los Angeles... Hardworking
Tom is as slender as he was during the height of his playing career
and except for a receding hairline and some gray about the temples
he looks fit enough to step on the gridiron today .. . his wife, Elyse
Knox of the movies is reportedly his severest critic. He does much of
his rehearsing at home with the wife giving him constructive criticism

fERHAPS THE BIGGEST FAVORITE of the Michigan Rose Bowl
football squad on their tour of the Hollywood studios was Bing
Crosby . . . Bing took time out during the middle of a picture he
was shooting with Jane Wyman to converse with the players. . . .
another favorite was Bob Hope, who wisecracked blithely with them.
Incidentally, for disappointed ticket-seekers, Hope applied for 20
tickets and wound up with four on the 20-yard line. "OK," he said,
"with my elbows I need two. for myself and I'd like to take a couple
of friends." ... The Press Arrangements Committee, headed by Randy
Richards of the Pasadena Athletic Club, did one of the finest jobs
imaginable-making for a truly unforgettable trip.

Two roaring express trains in
the form of the Montreal Cara-
bins and the Michigan Wolverine
hockey squads will meet head on
tonight at the Michigan Coliseum
in the first of a two game week-
Tonight's game as well as Sat-
urday's contest will commence at

THUS FAR this season the Wol-
verines have gone through nine
games without a loss while the
high flying Frenchmen possess an
unblemished record with a win
skein of six games.
Tending the goal for the visitors
will be Marcel Auger, who is
spending his sixth collegiate sea-
son in the nets. Auger is in his
second season at Montreal and
previously he played for the Uni-
versity of Ottawa for four cam-
CANADIAN COLLEGES are al-
lowed to use both graduate and
Protecting Auger will be stout
and rugged defensemen George
Veniere and Ray Garriepy. The
probable first line for the Cara-
bins will be composed of cen-
ter Ray "Peanuts" Flynn and
wings Andre Charest and Vic
Eddie May's return will bolster
the defense which has been oper-
ating with but three men since
the season's opener with the Auto
Club. Another bright spot for the
Wolverines is in the nets where
H4l Downes holds forth with a
much greater degree of confidence
as a result of his fine work in
To beat the Wolverines the
Carabins must stop Heyliger's
first line of Neil Celley, Gil Bur-
ford, and John Matchefts, which
have dented the twine for 34 goals
in nine games.
In addition to this trio, the
Maize and Blue possesses a dis-
tinct scoring threat in John Mc-
Kennell, who has flashed the red
light 15 times.

Wrestlers Face Strong Indiana Team
Michigan's varsity wrestling
team will open its Big Ten sche-
dule here Saturday night against
a rugged Indiana squad.
The Wolverines boast two im-
pressive victories over Toledo, 22-
8, and over a surprisingly strong
Pittsburgh aggregation, 16-11.
* * *
THIS WILL BE the first regu-
lar meet forthe Hoosiers. How-
ever, they swamped an under-
manned Arkansas State team in
their only practice meet.
I n d i a n a which finished
eighth in the Conference Cham-
pionship Meet last year, has
only four returning lettermen.
They are Harry Arthur at 123,
Dave Miller at 130, Russell Kel-
lerat at 167, and Charles Hur-
ley in the heavyweight division.
Arthur lost only one dual match
last year, but was unable to com-
pete in the Big Ten Champion-
ship Meet because of a knee in-
jury. Junior, Phil Thrasher, who
also wrestles at 123, will probably
be used at 114 pounds when that
optional class is wrestled.

varsity slot for the last two sea-

sons, has shown considerable im-
provement so- far this year.
Coach Charley McDaniel will
have to depend upon compara-
tively inexperienced material in
the middle weight divisions.
He will go along with Richard
Wilder, who competed in only one
match last year, in the 137 pound
class and Ray Reason, who has
had no previous varsity experience
A TOTALLY inexperienced sop-
homore, Charley Thbmpson, will
probably start in the 157 pound
However, McDaniel will be ab-
le to count upon veterans in the
heavier weight classes.
Russ Keller and Tom Wollen-
weber will undoubtedly see acti9n
in the 167 and 175 pound divisions.
* * *
THE HEAVYWEIGHT starter
hasn't been decided upon as yet,
but it will be either letterman
Chuck Hurley or mammoth sopho-
more, Joe Matesic, who carries 245
pounds on his 6-5 frame.
Veterans Dave Space, Captain
Bill Stapp, and Bud Holcombe will
pace Michigan in the middleweight
MONTREAL --(AP)-- Montreal's
improving Canadiens ran their win
streak to three games last night,
trouncing Lynn Patrick's Chicago
The Canadiens thus moved into
undisputed possession of third
15-game winning streak was
snapped by St. Johns of Brook-
lyn last night. The Redmen
handed the Uo. 1 collegiate
cage team in the country their
first defeat of the season, 68 to

header at Madison Square Gar-
place in the NHL, behind Detroit
Both the Red Wings and the
Leafs were idle last night.
Meanwhile, restauranteurs in
Detroit were searching feverishly
to match the so-called "magic po-
tion" which has been supposedly
responsible for the recent upsurge
of the lowly New York Rangers.

Under the leadership of the
S o u t h e r n, Southeastern and
Southwest Conference,, most of
the major collegiate groups except
the Big Ten and Pacific Coast
Conferences agreed to support one
constitutional amendment which
would take away most of the as-
sociation's regulatory powers.
. * *
THIS MOVE will be made at
the opening business session of the
convention tomorrow afternoon.
Basically, the c o n f e r e n c e
members agreed that the present
code had not worked out suc-
cessfully and a return to insti-
tutional control is preferable.
A compromise which would leave
certain restrictions on recruiting
in the constitution brought the
powerful eastern group of colleges
into the coalition.
The joint meeting, sponsored by
Southern groups, also was at-
tendedby representatives of the
Big Seven, Missouri Valley, East-
ern and other conferences. It was
agreed that they will attempt to
put the amendment into the con-
vention floor as soon as possible
Meanwhile, the National Col-
legiate Track Coaches Associa-
tion recommended to the NCAA
that freshmen be allowed to par-
ticipate in varsity athletics for
"the duration of the emergency."
It was the second group of the
NCAA to recommend return of
wartime eligibility rules. The
baseball coaches Wednesday ask-
ed that freshmen be made eligible
starting in the spring.
