D*ON CANHAM'S current track squad might be one of the finest
cop the Big Ten championship.
4. That's an odd statement to have to make considering that the
Wolverines have been a leading track power for years and own a ma-
jor share of the Conference track crowns. But it appears that Leo
Johnson of Illinois may have even a greater outfit down at Cham-
All of which makes Saturday's battle in the Illinois Armory
a rather vital one in deciding who the Conference kingpin will be.
Canham claims that the Illini look the best on paper. He has
the comparative times and distances to prove his point, but at
the same time he admitted that if anybody was going to beat
Illinois it would be his Wolverines.
It probably is a little disconcerting to Canham to have finally
gathered together a promising bunch of young cindermen and then
have to contend with another unusually strong team. Michigan hasn't
won an indoor title since 1945 or an outdoor crown since 1944, and
since then has been plagued with a lack of team balance.
Three and four years ago there were quarter-milers galore
and no hurdlers or sprinters. Last year it was practically reversed
when Don Hoover, Jim Mitchell, and Art Henrie took care of the
short distances. There were Vo 440 men, though, for that event
or the all-important mile relay.
This year the squad, led by the incomparable Don McEwen, ap-
peared to have everything. Then Henrie and Russ Tuttle were called
back into the service and the squad was relegated to the class of be-
ing just good and not sensational as it might have been.
They've already sold 6000 tickets down at Champaign, indicating
that the fans still think the Wolverines have something. Just how
much we'll know after Saturday.
IT ISN'T OFTEN that somebody as obscure as a college freshman
gets recognition from a professional athletic organization. That is
the case, however, with one of Vic Heyliger's frosh hockey aspirants.
The Detroit Red Wings have obtained the negotiation rights
on Willard Ikola, an outstanding goalie prospect on Heyliger's
first year squad. Ikola has been the rave of the Wolverine players
ever since he started working out last fall, and apparently the
ever alert Wings got wind of the fact.
Ikola didn't know anything about the matter until he read it in
the Detroit newspapers. Naturally there has been speculation as to
what he would do about it. His immediate plans, however, now call
for a college education first and possible "play for pay" after.
Another angle in this story is the fact that Ikola was born in
the United States, in Eveleth, Minnesota to be exact. American
born puckmen in the National Hockey League are scarce items at
the present and the Wings must have been impressed to even con-
sider somebody other than a Canadian.
Ikola got a good share of his training from Cliff Thompson, the
Eveleth High coach who had a lot to do with the development of
Frank Brimsek, one of the NHL's greatest goalies.

Cancelled by
Air Trouble
The scheduled "armchair" bas-
ketball tilt between members of
Michigan's 1950 football squad
and an all-star group of wounded
war vets from Birmingham Hos-
pital, California, was cancelled
last night when engine trouble
forced down the invaders' plane
in Kansas City.
After abandoning their falter-
ing DC-3 the paraplegic cage
wizards attempted to contract a
TWA plane to carry them to Ann
Arbor. However, they were un-
able to make connections and
phoned Athletic Department offi-
cials who in turn called off the
', *3 *
nounced that they plan to pro-
ceed directly to New York from
where they will leave for Boston
for a game with Cushing General
Hospital tomorrow.
The rest of the "Flying
Wheels" schedule calls for sev-
eral games in New York and a
swing through the South on
their way back to Long Beach.
Cancellation of the contest with
the Wolverine gridders in defer-
ence to later matchings is due to
the fact that these matches are
part of a regular wheel chair bas-
ketball schedule, games with able-
bodied players being sandwiched
into an already heavy program.

FourGrapplers Spark Michigan Cause

Although Michigan's varsity mat
masters are noted for their fine
team spirit and aggressiveness,
four wrestlers are standouts from
the statistical standpoint.
This quartet has sparked the
Wolverine wrestlers' undefeated
skein in eight meets so far this
season. Larry Nelson, the varsity's
123 pound mighty mite, leads this
contingent with eight-wins against
no defeats or ties.
THIS IS especially remarkable
because Nelson was greatly handi-
capped by an arm injury after
the Indiana meet. But Michigan's
fly-weight contender bounced back
and won by a fall in the following
Purdue meet, helping the Wol-
verines eke out a thrilling 15-14
Bud Holcombe, the Maize and
Blue's 167 pound dreadnaught,
closely folows Nelson with seven
wins and no ties or losses. Hol-
combe's record is especially not-
able in that three of his seven
victories were via the fall route.

Light-heavy Jo^ Planck and

with 5-1-2 and 4-2-0 records re-

with a fall in the Toledo meet.
