It'll be "basketball on wheels"
tonight at Yost Fieldhouse when
an all-star wheelchair team com-
pos? of combat-wounded para-
lyzed veterans of World War II
from Birmingham Hospital, Long
Beach, California, engage Michi-
gan's Rose Bowl football 'cham-
pions in a game scheduled to get
4 under way at 8 p.m.
The price of admission will be
two packs 'of cigarettes to the
general public and one pack for
faculty or students. All cigarettes
will be mailed back to the par-
aplegics' hospital at Long Beach.
Luckman's
Career As
Player Ends
CHICAGO (P)-Sid. Luckman--
eulogized as the greatest kT' for-
~'mation football quarterback by
such gents as George Halas, Frank
Leahy, Johnny Lujack and Bob
Williams-yesterday ended his 12
year playing career with the Chi-
cago Bears and became a vice-
president of the club.
In the dim-lighted 'Corral
Room' of a loop hotel, owner-
coach Halas of the Bears today
announced Luckman's finish as a
player.
In addition to his chores as vice-
president, Luckman will be a scout
and a backfield instructor.

EXPECTED TO BE in action
for the Wolverines, all of whom
will play the game seated in
wheelchairs, are football captain-
elect .Bill Putich, Chuck Ortmann,
Don Dufek, Leo Koceski, Harry
Allis, Tom Johnson, and other
Maize and Blue grid stars.
The "Flying Wheels," as the
disabled vets' team is called,
boasts a fine record over the
past three years. Last year the
paraplegic outfit "rolled over"
able-bodied Notre Dame and
Northwestern.
Inaugurated in 1 9 4 8, t h e
"Wheels" won 11 of 12 games that
year, 6 of 11 in 1949, and last year
tore through a 12-game schedule
with 11 victories.
THE TEAM TRAVELS by char-
tered DC-3, accompanied by a'
doctor, registered nurse, three
hospital attendants and Coach
Carl Knowles, an ex-UCLA, bas-
ketball star. The annual junket
is strictly non-commercial and
non-profit.
,Of course, there is a great
deal of "profit" for the *men
who play on the paraplegic
team.
The opportunity to make the
hospital's all-star team, with the
trip as a reward for excellence,
serves as a powerful incentive for
avery paraplegic to get out of bed
and try his hand on the basketball
court.
Not only do these games serve
as a great morale booster, but the
physical benefits are also of un-
limited value.

HERE COMES THE BLUES:
Wolverines Await Strong Toronto Six

By BOB ROSENMAN
Michigan's hockey team final-
ly made .it back to Ann Arbor
Monday night after their excur-
sion to Colorado last week, and
the Wolverines promptly got down
to the task at hand-preparing
for the powerful University of
Toronto sextet.
Friday and Saturday night the
Blues from Canada invade Coli-
seum ice for a two-game series
that will undoubtedly match or

surpass the Michigan-Montreal
series in excitement and hockey
finesse.
TO SHOW the Blues' fine
power and ability, one has only
to look at the results of a two-
game series between the Carabins
of Montreal and Toronto. Tor-
onto won both games; 8-6 and
7-3, defeating a team which hand-
ed . Michigan its first defeat of

the season, 3-2, and tied the Wol-
verines, 8-8, the previous night.
Oddly enough, . Toronto was
unable to do better than gain
an even split in two games with
Denver University and a pair
with Colorado College, but this
can probably be attributed to
the high altitude out west to
'which neither Toronto nor 'the
Wolverines were accustomed.
The manner in which Michi-
gan's scoring was done on the trip
was unusual. Gil Burford tallied

baseball *ill please sign up at

House some time this week...
--Ray Fisher
4 of 5 Wolverine goals in the 5-4
win over Denver, while Earl
Keyes scored all 3 Michigan goals
in the 5-3 loss to Colorado Col-
lege.
Scoring statistics for the first
17 games show Neil Celley still
leading all Michigan scorers with
44 points, 20 off the all-time high
of 64 by a .Michigan player, set
by Gil Burford last season.
Up-to-date scoring totals:

BY TED PAPES
Michigan stands a cool seventh
in the current Western Confer-
ence basketball chase, but after
Monday night's victory over Min-
nesota .the team must not be
tabbed as colorless.
With the turn of the semester,
coach Ernie McCoy was given the
green light to turn loose a Mutt
and Jeff hardwood combination
which should produce spectator
interest even if it fails to develop
a winning complex.
SCHOLASTIC difficulties pre-
vented the'use of giant Dick Wil-
liams since he was benched last
February. He is now a reular
along with Tiny Doug Lawrence
who has been ineligible since
school opened in the fall.
Both players kept the fans on
the edge of their seats during
the overtime struggle in which
the Wolverines were in com-
mand until the final stages when
Ozzie Cowles' Gophers found
enough punch to pull up even
with the home team.
Lawrence entered the game at
guard relieving Bob Olson who
had rebounded well and had hit
a shot from the field in the early
stages.
ON THE FACE of it the substi-
tution appeared only temporary
but McCoy decided to give his
rookie a bigger test and the re-
sults were good.
Doug's showing takes some of
the pressure off at guard fol-
lowing Bill Putich's ineligibility.
Two Champs
'Meet in Title
Bout. Tonight
Chicago-(P)-Sugar Ray Rob-
inson, world welter king, rules a
solid favorite to strip Jake La-
Motta of his middleweight crown
tonight in the first battle of two
champions since, the days of Hen-
ry Armstrong.
La Motta, the cement-jawed
"Bull of the Bronx" who never
has been knocked off his feet in
95 fights, is the mystery man.
Nobody knows his exact weight.
Nobody can fathom his pre-fight
strategy.
Twice La Motta has made the
weight with great effort to de-
fend against Tiberio Mitro and
Laurent Dauthuille since he won
the title from the late Marcel
Cerdan.
Robinson, expected to weigh
154, holds four wins over La Mot-
ta in their five-bout series. How-
ever, La Motta is the only man
to whip him in 123 fights. That
happened Feb. 5, 1943, in their
second meeting, a unanimous 10-
round decision at Detroit.
. Twice La Motta had Robinson
on the floor, for a nine-count the
night he beat the Sugar Man, and
for an eight-count three weeks
later when Robinson avenged his
lone defeat.

the newcomers and vetran Leo
VanderKuy was a crucial contri-
bution by forward Jim Skala wh(
made three clutch baskets in the
latter part of the second hdlf
which provided just enough of a
cushion to withstand Minnesota's
closing rush.
HE REBOUNDED a missed free
throw to give the Wolverines a
39-31 edge, tipped in a.long shot
by Lawrence and then hooked one
of his own on a dazzling play.
The team now turns its sights
toward * a new goal, that of
equalling the record of four Big
Ten victories recorded by last
season's unit.
With two decisions on the books
already they have six more en-
gagements on tap.
First of these will be an inva-
sion of Michigan State which
throttled, Michigan in their first
meeting here earlier this year.
The Wolverines made only ten
field goals that night enabling
the Spartans to gain their first
decision at Yost Fieldhouse since
1933.
