M Pucksters Just Seven
Goals Short of New Mark
Celley, Burford, McKennell Direct Assault
On Thirty-Year-Old Michigan Scoring Recordt

* * *

d: $t :k

With three games remaining on
the Michigan hockey schedule,
the 1950-51 Wolverine sextet
lacks just seven goals of becoming
the highest scoring squad in 30
years of the Maize and Blue ice
To date the Wolverines have
scored 173 goals in 22 games, just
six shy of the record 179 the 1948-
49 team rolled up in 25 regular
season contests.
AND WITH Michigan State's
Spartan's, a team that Michigan.
had no trouble at all disposing of
*10-1 last week, due in town this'
Saturday, a new team scoring rec
ord as well as Michigan's indi-
vidual scoring mark seem destin-
ed to fall.
Left wing Neil Celley will be
the center of attention for the
latter mark. Last Saturday Cel-
ley tied teammate Gil Burford's
1949-50 record of 64 points and
this weekend Celley will get his
first of three remaining chances
to fashion a record of his own.
* Last year in Ann Arbor fans
were treated to a maze of record
setting in the second Michigan
State clash. Michigan walked
away with a 17-1 decision that es-
tablished the Wolverines' all-time
one-game scoring total.
THE MSC ROUT also marked
the first time that a Michigan
sextet had won 21 regular season:
games. This same team went on to
win its final game of the season
to set a single season record of
22 victories ' (excluding NCAA
tournament games).
The other record established
at the expense of the Spartans
was Burford's individual scoring
mark of 64 points.
Along the lines of the present
Wolverine hockey squad's high
scoring antics, the "hat trick" is!
getting to be an .old story.
Fifteen of the three-goal hon-

ors have been earned by five dif-
ferent members of the team this

"I am disturbed by the definite

can be done about it." Olsen de-
clared. "I wish we could call in-

THE CONTEST began in much

took the victors seven minutes to

Fourth CCNY
Player Admits
Taking Bribes
NEW YORK - P) - District
Attorney Frank S. Hogan said
yesterday that another of City
College of New York's champion-
ship basketball stars admitted
taking part in the fixed games.
He is Floyd G. Layne, the 10th
metropolitan star or former play-
er to be questioned about colle-
giate sports' greatest scandal.
** *
THE PURPORTED confession
came shortly after CCNY quit bas-
ketball for the rest of the season,
its officials discouraged and dis-
gusted with the spreading scandal.
Hogan said Layne admitted
taking part in the fix of three
games for which he received
$2,500 in bribes and $500 in
The District Attorney said the
fixed games were with Missouri
Dec. 9, Arizona Dec. 28 and the
Boston College game Jan. 11.
THESE WERE the same three
games which three of Layne's
CCNY teammates are said to have
admitted fixing.
Hogan said Layne never was
paid off for the Boston College
game but did not explain why.
In addition to the fixed games,
Hogan said Layne got a $250 bon-
us for CCNY games with Wash
ington State Dec. 14 and St.
John's Jan. 2.
The District Attorney said
Layne was not required to do any
fixing in these games. The money
was to "sweeten" Layne and the
other bribed players for future
sellouts, Hogan said.
The 22-year-old Layne is a CC-
NY Junior and lhas played basket-
ball for two seasons.]
Layne is the fourth of CCNY's
"Cinderella" stars drawn into ther
fixing scandal.
He and the others boosted CC-c
NY into the top rung in both the
National Invitation and the N.C.-t
A.A. tourneys last year-a dual
victory never before accomplished.1

Michigan's Bill Konrad,. Dave
Stinson; and: John Wilcox bat-

Hailed as Wisconsin's greatest
quarter-miler, LeRoy Collins gains
the most favor in the gruelling
440 yard dash. He is the only Big
Ten runner to do better than 50

duo of Rog Swank and Ci Mc-
Sween rank close behind Collins in
times so far this year.

contention, with Joe LaRue and
Al Rankin topping the Wolverine
The very important mile re-
lay event also concerns quarter-
milers strongly. Because this
event is last on the pogram, it
can have very important re-
percussions as far as deciding
who is the team champion.
Led by Swank and McSween,
Illinois has posted the best time
so far this year, 3:20.2, and rules
as favorite. Purdue, Ohio State,
and Michigan are close in conten-

from behind to edge Michigan

Garst-Led Iowa Next Swimming Foe

Hurlers Get
A t Lakelanid
LAKELAND, Fla.-(AP)-Manag-
er Red Rolfe drove his Detroit
Tiger batterymen and four in-
fielders through a two-hour work-
out yesterday in 78-degree sun-'
shine at Henley Field.
Besides the batterymen those
taking part included the veteranE
double-play combination of second
baseman Jerry Priddy and short-
stop Johnny Lipon and two re-
cruits, Bob Mavis, up from Toledo,
and Harold (Do) Daugherty, called!
in from Little Rock.
Kenneth Fremming, rookiet
righthander from Toledo, joined f
the pitchers for his workout of
the spring. He was delayedl
six days in reporting to keep a
date with his Buffalo, N. Y.
draft board.t
"I don't know when I'll be called,
but I'm pretty sure I passed my1
physical," Fremming told Rolfe.
"The board told me it would be all
right to come to Lakeland and
wait for orders."
The infielders working out today
could have delayed starting spring
drills until Thursday, when all in-
fielders and outfielders officiallye
are scheduled to report.r
The Tigers now have only fivet
unsigned players, but two of them{
are regular outfielders, Hoot Evers
and Vic Wertz. The others are in-
fielders Eddie Lake and AlX
Federoff, the latter a rookie, and
John Creel, a recruit outfielder.

With the Big Ten meet at Min-

fringe between good and excellent,
and are hitting their season's

BIG MAN for the natators from

a very lively sprinter who holds
the NCAA and Big Ten 50-yard

with the century crown in the
Garst had a scorching 23.3 in
the short sprint 'last season and
was all by himself at the dis-
tance. This year his best is 23.4,
although he may lower that by
the time the conference cake
is cut.
In the 100, he sped to a 52.2
clocking last season and has been'
caught in 51.4 this year, with thet
latter recorded in the free style

Some of Iowa's big men have
left their alma mater, notably,
Bowen Stassforth, the excellent
breast stroke specialist, but the
Hawkeyes still retain a good
working nucleus.

When the Michigan wrestlers
head into battle against the rest of
the Western Conference this week-
end, they will be looking for their
fourth first place finish in the
history of the tournament.

MANY TIMES in the past they
have also finished second or third,
and only once have they been be-
low fifth place.
This is indeed a record to be
proud of, and this year's team is
hardly one that is liable to ruin
the Wolverine's reputation,
When they enter the Northwest-
ern field house, the mighty Keen
men will be rated as one of the
top four teams in the Big Ten.
Only Purdue, Ohio State and
Michigan State can be even com-
pared to the Wolverine grapplers.

copping the title won last year by
The Boilermakers are again
very strong, but this year they
wil have to contend with much
stronger opposition if they are
to walk off with their fourth mat
crown in succession.
Ohio State and Michigan are
really the two top seeded teams.
When these two teams met last
weekend neither one gave way and
the final score of 12-12 shows that
a real battle is in store come Fri-
day and Saturday.
Last year the Wolverines came
in third in the Conference with
Dave Space and Bill Stapp regis-
tering second place decisions, and
accounting for eight of the Wol-i
verines' fifteen points.
This year these two are back
along with Larry Nelson and Jack
Gallon, both of whom are unde-
feated. There are really very few
weak spots on the team and as a
whole things should be looking up
this weekend.
