Both games are scheduled to get

Get NCAA Bid
Michigan was officially cho-
sen along with Colorado Col-
lege to be .the western repre-
sentatives to the NCAA hockey
championships to be played at
Colorado Springs, Colo., March
15, 16 and 17.
Boston University with a
record of 15 wins and 4 losses,
and Brown University with a
16-5 record will represent the
east.
Boston U. was runner up to
chanpion Colorado last year.
They have been beaten b both
Michigan and Brown thid year,
but surprised Colorado with a
7-4 upset.

Last season, the Wolverines
faced' the Huskies four times
and won three of -the games.
Tech edged Michigan, 3-2, in
their first encounter, but in la-
ter games the Maize and Blue
triumphed, 9-2, 6-1, and 9-3.
The overall all-time record of
competition between the two teams
gives Michigan 36 victories to 20
for Michigan Tech. Three games
ended up in ties. '
The Tech series will be the final
opportunity for Michigan and Neil
Celley to set new records. Every
time Celley tallies a goal or assist,
he is adding to his Michigan scor-
ing record, which stands now at
67 points. The Wolverines also
have scored more goals this sea-
son, 1,82, than ever before in Mich-
igan puck history.

The Intra-Mural basketball tour-
naments draw closer to the climax
as play in the fraternity division
has reached the semi-final stage,
while only the final playoff, to be
held at the IM Open House March
21, remains in the residence halls
division.
Sigma Chi, Alpha Tau Omega,
Delta Tau Delta and Phi Gamma
Delta are the four teams who are
still in contention in fraternity
play.
SIGMA CHI reached the semi-
finals by virtue of the victory over
the defending champions, Phi
Delta Theta, 31-17.
Alpha Tau Omega fought
their way into the semi-finals
by easily downing Chi Psi, 36-10.
ATO employed a tight defense
along with a good game of con-

JOHN McKENNELL
.. .sophomore success

trol ball held the Chi Psi's to a
lone field goal in the first half.
* * *
DELTA TAU DELTA stayed in
the race when they defeated Phi
Sigma)I Delta, 40-34. The Delts
led 24-9 at the half, but the losers
came up to only a 30-35 deficit be-
fore succumbing.
Phi Gamma Delta rounds out
the four survivors. They-out-
lasted Phi Kappa Psi 40-36 in a
battle that saw the Phi Gams
overtaken with five minutes to
go after leading most of the
way.
They then rallied to tie at 36
all and then clinched matters with
the two winning field goals.
The residence halls champion-
ship contest will be a rematch of
the 1950 game between defending
champion Fletcher Hall and Chi-
cago House.
LLOYD FELL victim to a third
period 24 point Fletcher outburst
and succumbed to the defending
champs 54-44 after holding a 20-
20 deadlock at the half.
Fletcher showed a balanced
attack with three players hit-
ting for double figures. Norm
Canty bagged 18 for top honors,
while Dick Balzhiser and Jim
Balog hooped 12 and 10, respec-
tively.
Chicago also made use of team
balance to dispose of Prescott 38-
28 in the other semi-final tilt. The
challengers fashioned their vic-
tory margin at the free throw
line as they meshed 14 to go with
their 12 field goals.

Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - Ohio State's
Jac Taylor withheld the challenge
of Michigan State's sophomore
sensation, Bert McLachlan, to set
a new conference record in the
1500-meter free style last night
as the 41st annual Big Ten swim-
ming meet got underway in the
Minnesota pool.
Michigan's Wayne Leengran fin-
ished fifth in the race with Mc-
Lachlan placing second, Dave An-
All basketball lettermen are
requested to appear at Rent-
schler's Studio, 319 E. Huron,
at 12:30 p.m. today.
-Ernie McCoy
derson of the Gophers third, and
Dave Norman of the Spartans
fourth.
TAYLOR, in winning the event'
in 18 minutes, 43.3 seconds, bet-
tered the record he set last year
in the Conference meet by 14.8
seconds.
The Buckeye star, who also!
won the 440-yard free styleand
the 150-yard back stroke in the
Big Ten meet last year, went
out fast in the opening quar-
ter, tiring out his opponents
early in the race.
The 1500-yard free style was
the only event on last night's pro-
gram.
The meet continues today with
trials and finals in the 50 and
220-yard free style races, the 200
back stroke, the 200 breast stroke,

low board diving, and the 400-
yard free style relay.
** *
CLARK SCHOLES, Michigan
State's sprint champ, is a threat
to break the existing 50-yard free
style record of 23.1 seconds set by
Ed Tomski of Michigan in 1939.
He will face his strongest opposi-
tion from Tom Whiteleather and
Herb Kobayashi of Ohio State,
Iowa's Ed Garst, the defending
champion in this event, and the
Wolverines' Jim Martin and Dave
Neisch.
The Michigan natators will
make thei rstrongest bid in the
200-yard breast stroke in the
persons of John Davies and Stew
Elliott, who finished fourth and
fifth, respectively, in this raceI
last year.
Gerald Holan of the Buckeyes
rules the favorite in this event~
while Bill Dunlop of Purdue will
attempt to defend his 1950 cham-
pionship.
ANOTHER record is expected to
fall in the 440-yard free style
relay when the Spartans who have
recorded a 3:27.8 time, and Iowa,
which has toured the distance in
3:28.3, collide. The present record
of 3:31 was set by an Ohio State
quartet in 1947.

The Wolverines will probably
send Wally Jeffries and Bob By-
berg to the starting line in the
220 free style against a strong
field which includes Bert Mc-
Lachlan of Michigan State,
Ohio State's Frank Dooley and
Charles Stephanos, Dick Labahn
of Iowa, and Minnesota's An-
derson.

remains before the Wolverines
prepare to travel to Colorado
Springs for the NCAA tourna-
ment.
The Techmen lave not dis-
played exceptional brilliance on
the ice this season. Included in
their season' record are 4 de-
feats by Minnesota, 2 losses to
Colorado, and 3 defeats in 4
starts against Michigan State.
However, the Huskies have de-
feated North Dakota, St. Thomas
of Minnesota, and Denver, but the
addition of several freshmen stars
thould help Coach Amo Bessone's
charges.

MICHIGAN T E C H recently
abolished the "freshman rule,"
prohibiting frosh from competing
on varsity athletic teams, and Bes-
sone, who played under Michigan
coach Vic Heyliger at the Univer-
sity of Illinois,_ has come up with
a good forward line of yearlings
plus a freshman defenseman, all
of whom will see action in the
Michigan series.

the National Association of Bas-
ketball Coaches, was also announc-
ed today, and the same five men
were chosen.

Pro Fraternity,
Independent
Cagers Play

Professional fraternity and In-
dependent basketball semi-finals
were played last night at the I-M
Building.
Alpha Kappa Kappa dropped
Nu Sigma N uin a 21-20 thriller
last night, to reach the profession-
al fraternity basketball finals.
WITH TWENTY seconds re-
maining to play, Bill Grabbe sunk
a game-winning foul shot to give
the AKK house its victory. Nu
Sig led, 20-14, with less than two
minutes to go, but three quick
Alpha Kappa buckets prepared
the stage for Grabbe's winningr
tally.
AKKs opponent In next week's
finals will be the defending
champs, Law Club 'A'. The law-s
yers overwhelmed a fighting
ASCE squad, 43-18, in their bidt
to keep their crown.
Wally Riley was high man forc
the Law Club, scoring 12 points,t
while Rod Veenstra caged six inr
the ASCE's losing battle.
Reed's Raiders and Newman
Club will square off in the Inde-
Pendent League basketball finals
next week as a result of their
victories in last night's semi-final
contests.
THE RAIDERS outlasted the
Jimoes in a rough and tumble
battle, winning 35 to 29, and New-
man turned on the heat in the
second half to humble the Pres-
byterians, 45-32.
Forward Dick Strozewski was
high man on the Raider's totem
pole tossing in 11 markers. Bill
Reader and Don Stein each
counted nine for the losers.
Newman Club's high powered
attack easily overwhelmed the
hapless Presbyterians whose mo-
mentary defensive lapses proved
costly.

Tonight the Wolverines will be-
gin their major assault on the in-
door board tracks in the Knights
of Columbus Meet at Cleveland.
Top event of the meet will be the
feature mile with Don Gerhmann
and Len Truex of Ohio State the
top stars.
* *~ *
GERHMANN was proved not to
be invincible in the mile run last
week, when after winning 39'
straight races, FBI man Fred Wilt
finally outdid him. Truex placed'
third to the two star milers in an
earlier meet this year, and only
last week tied Gerhmann's big ten
indoor one mile mark set last year.
Michigan entrants will be led
by Conference high and low hur-
dle champion, Don Hoover.
Hurdler Wally Atchison, dash-
man Bill Konrad pole vaulter
Tom Emblad, high jumper Low-
ell Perry, and Jack Carroll in the
600 yard dash are the other in-
dividual entrants. In relay com-
petition, the Wolverines will
field both a mile relay and two
mile relay quartet, with the per-
sonnel of both undecided.
Tomorrow the squad will split
up, part going to the first annual
Milwaukee Journal Meet, and the
rest travelling to Hamilton for the
Canadian Indoor track champion-
ships.
* * * -
THE CANDIAN MEET will fea-
ture top stars from Europe, Cana-
da, and the United States. One of
the top events of the afternoon and
night competition promises to .be

the feature mile wtih Canada's
own Don McEwen taking the spot-
light. This is McEwen's only com-
petition over the weekend, and he
is giving his all out effort in the
race against time.
Other Michigan entrants in
the meet will be Doug Parks in
the open mile, John Ross in the
open mile, juniors, Jack Carroll
in the open 600, George Christ-
iansen in the junior 880, and
Dave Stinson in the senior 60
yard dash.
The perenial duel between Gerh-
mannaand Wilt will resume inrthe
Journal Meet as their mile race
takes the spotlight. Spectator in-
terest is at its peak for this match,
since Wilt broke Gerhmann's
magic spell in the mile run in
their last outing.
Michigan will concentrate on
the relays in this meet. The mile
relay quartet will field the same
men that took second in confer-
ence meet last week, and the
two' mile foursome will have
regular personnel with the ex-
ception of McEwen.
Hurdlers Hoover and Van
Bruner and Bill Konrad in the
dashes are the other Wolverine en-
trants.
Added incentive was given to the
cindermen yesterday with the an-
nouncement that the Wolverines
will go to Los Angeles April 21 for
one of the top triangular meets of
the outdoor season. Big Ten
Champion Illinois and PCC champ,
Southern California will be the
other two teams in the power
loaded field.
