Baseball Czar
Denied Offer
Of New Term
Chandler Loses Final
Bid for Top Position
By The Associated Press
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Happy
Chandler lost his final bid for a
new term as baseball commissioner
yesterday and indicated he might
resign before his contract expires
April 30, 1952.
Needing 12 votes for reelection,
Chandler was able to muster only
a 9-7 edge on the one and only
secret ballot at the joint meeting of
sthe 16 major league club owners.
same count at a joint meeting at
St. Petersburg last Dec. 11.
"I will make no further effort
to be elected commissioner," said
Chandler. "It's definite that I'm
not going to be commissioner."
Chandler said he would go home
to Kentucky to "talk to the folks"
tomorrow. He said he "might be in-
terested" in his old job as U.S. Sen-
ator, vacated by the death of Sen.
Virgil Chapman, Kentucky Demo-
crat, last week.
"The Governor told me he
would make no choice until I re-
turned," Happy said, concerning
the senatorial vacancy.
"I will continue to stay in of-
fice until my successor is elected
and qualified," he said.
No successor was in sight at the
moment. The four-man screening
committee that turned up some 30
candidates for the job was asked
to dig up additional information.
A statement read to the press by
Earl Milligan, publicity director of
the American Leagee, read in part:
"The Clubs are 'determined to
give the selection of a commission-
er very careful consideration and
to take all the time necessary to
obtain a man of outstanding in-
tegrity and ability."

After Disqualification in 880 Prelims

Chuck Whiteaker's performance
in the Big Ten Indoor Track Meet
last week was truly the personifi-
cation of a top athlete who
wouldn't let a bad break stand in
his way.
The slight Council Bluffs, Iowa,
half miler saw one of his big
dreams shattered Friday night in
the half mile preliminaries when
he was declared disqualified after
winning his heat handily.
aside, Whiteaker, to the surpries
of the Big Ten track world, came
back to take fifth place in the very
fast and competitive mile field.
Ever since Whiteaker began
running the 880 yard race for
the Maize and Blue three years
ago the first place in the West-
ern Conference Meet has beep
his goal. Running in a topnotch
field last year, Chuck placed
third to the great Don Gehr-
mann and OSU's Len Truex in
the conference indoor meet.
This year Chuck had run con-
sistent top half mile races, and
was looked on to give Truex a
tough race for first place in the
880. But when judges denied this
to him, the stage was set for his
amazing comeback in the mile.
* * * ' '
NOT ONLY was his cracking
the miler's block to finish in the
placing a terrific feat, but even
more surprising was the fact that
he seldom ran the mile race as a
Wolverine, and not once previously
this year.
And to top off this top per-
formance, Whiteaker's time was
a very good 4:18. He paced him-
self well the entire race, appear-
ing fresh all the way, and had
a good kick down theastretch
that carried him to a place
among the point getters.
Whiteaker came up to Michigan
with a well established name in
midwest high school track circles.
He was Iowa State champ in the
880, and Omaha-Council Bluffs in-
tercity mile champ. Chuck also,
ran the 440 occasionally, more of-

running an occasional mile. Last
year found him placing consistent-
ly high in the half mile.
This year Whiteaker hit his
stride, with a top time of 1:56
in the 880. He also has been
used as an alternate on the mile
relay team.
But more important is this new
found skill he has in the mile. It
means much more strength for the
Wolverines in the future. With the
big outdoor season rapidly ap-
proaching, he will be an important
cog in the four mile relay team, the
two mile relay team, and the dis-
tance medley team.
AND BEYOND THIS is the pos-
sibility of doubling him in the half
and mile race in all the outdoor
duel meets and the conference
meet. gathering in many important
points in the process.
Foremost in Whiteaker's mind at
the present is, however, to come
back this spring in the outdoor
Big Ten Track meet, win the half
mile race, thus gaining a spot in
the Big Ten Track team that will
travel to California in the summer
to meet the top stars of the Pacific
Coast Conference.

Heyliger Wary of Possible Injuries to Key
Players on Eve of NCAA Hockey Playoffs


The Detroit Red Wings, leaders
of the National Hockey League,
and Michigan's NCAA-bound
pucksters will stage one of their
famous hockey exhibitions tonight
when the two teams clash at the
Centers Sid Abel of the Wings
and Wolverine John Matchefts
will face off at 8 p.m.
WHAT HAPPENS after that,
however, is anyone's guess. In pre-
vious years' games, both teams
varied in play from clean aggres-
sive hockey to clowning for the
benefit of the fans.
To illustrate, one year Abel
was awarded a Michigan sweater
during the course of the game,
and on another occasion around
20 men were skating on the ice
at one time. Naturally, both
teams will exchange players at
various intervals in the game.

injuries which might conceivably

kept him mainly in the half mile
race during his freshman year,

week in the NCAA playoffs in
Colorado, will undoubtedly instruct
his charges not to rough it up too
strenuously with the Wings, who
boast a pretty formidable defense
in front of goalie Terry Sawchuk.
HEYLIGER has indicated that
Willard Ikola, much-heralded
frosh goaltender, will start for the
Wolverines. In addition, other
members of the freshman team
will see action for Michigan along
with the varsity pucksters.
The Wolverines will be after
their second victory over the
Red Wings. Back in 1946, the two
teams opened their annual series
as the Maize and Blue was de-
feated, 7-5. In 1947, Michigan
won, 9-7, but in 1948 and again
last year, the Wolverines were
beaten, 11-5, and 10-1, respec-

Ohio Steals.'M'SwiSupremacy

Innocent people suffer..

There was a day when Mike
Peppe's Ohio State swimming team
was in the constant position of
playing second fiddle to the young
men of Michigan.
But now the tables are turned,
the past is no more, and it looks
like only a miracle could give the
Wolverines a chance to set the
situation right.
THEBUCKEYES, in rolling up
a phenomenal total of 129 points
in last weekend's Conference meet
(partially due to the fact that
sixth places counted in the scor-
ing), served notice that they'll
probably be on top of the Big Ten
totem pole for a number of years.
A look at only three events gives
an idea of the all-around strength
ot the Buckeyes.,
In diving, where the Scarlet
and Gray have always been
strong, they picked up 28 points,
*with a pair of firsts, a second,
two thirds and a fourth. In the
100-yard back stroke they swept
the first three places for another
15 markers.

It was inevitable that OSU
would run up a large margin on
their nearest competitor-but as
it was they nearly doubled the
score of second-place Michigan
It's doubtful if they'll fare as
well this week in the NCAA cham-
pionships at Austin. Yale's Bull-
dogs have them matched and prob-
ably beaten in every event except
diving and the backstroke.
NOTES FROM a most unusual
meet-Michigan's medley relay
team of Bernie Kahn, Dave
Neisch, and Stew Elliott was a big
surprise for the Wolverines, as it
placed second behind the Buck-
eyes. Itshad been figured for no
better than third or fourth.'.-.
Ohio's Jack Taylor set an NCAA
record for the 200-yard back
stroke Friday night with a 2:08.7
effort. He came back on Saturday
to eclipse the Big Ten mark in the
100-yard back stroke with a time
of 57.3. . . . Bob Clotworthy, who
won both diving events, didn't ap-
pear when the Buckeyes were in
Ann Arbor for a dual meet earlier
this season. . . . Most spectators
who saw that meet felt that the
Buckeyes would have to go a long
way to find anyone comparable

Michigan will send an abbre-
viated sqlad to the NCAA cham-
pionships. . . . The medley relay
team and the breast stroke team of
John Davies andhStew Elliott will
probably make the trip. . . Bert
McLachlan, the young Michigan
State free styler, should give the
Yale triumvirate of Jimmy Mc-
Lane, John Marshall, and Ray
Blum a tough fight in the 440....
McLachlan set a new conference
record of 4:38.6 in a trial heat, and
came back at night to swim a good
4:41.8 race.

by National Hockey League Presi-

Richard, acclaimed by many as

today, was penalized as a result of
