COLUMBUS, Ohio -(A')- The
Ohio House got a request yester-
day to investigate the athletic de-
partment of Ohio State University
-termed "the graveyard of foot-
That's what Rep. Howard W.
Oyster (Rep.-Washington) said
the school has become known as.
Ohio State has had five grid
coaches in the last decade and is
looking for a sixth to fill the va-
cancy left by Wesley E. Fesler,
now of Minnesota.

OYSTER, WHO DID not attend
Ohio State, wants particularly to
know whether tax money is spent
on sports there because he says
he's against that.
His resolution called for the
House finance committee, which
passes on appropriations to the
state-supported school, to make
the investigation. The House of
Representatives took no immed-
iate action on Oyster's request.
Richard C. Larkins, OSU ath-
letic director, commented:
"I hope the investigation will be
made because everything is clean
and clear." .
THE STATE AUDITOR now au-
dits athletic department finances.
Oyster took a slap at Larkins
in his resolution. He criticized
the director for ordering the
Ohio State-Michigan game play-
ed here last Nov. 24 in a blizzard
over objections of both coaches.
Michigan won 9-3.
But what sent Oyster into ac-
tion was an Associated Press story

A replica of the torrid Mon-
treal series is in store for Wolver-
ine hockey fans when 'Vic Hey-
liger's, sextet hosts the Toronto
University Blues at the Coliseum
for a two game series beginning
tonight at 8:00 p.m.
The teams will wind up their
series tomorrow evening in a
game that starts at the usual 8:00
p.m. starting time.
WINNERS OF seven games in
ten starts, the Blues possess two
victories over the Montreal Cara-
bins, who beat the Maize and
Blue earlier in thq campaign.
If this fact isn't enough to
give Coach Heyliger night-
mares, he is also faced with the
realization that center Paul Pe-
low of the third line is ineligible
for the season and Gil Burford
won't be working up to par be-
cause of a leg injury suffered
To replace Pelow, Heyliger has
moved defenseman Eddie May to
the third line to team with Gor-
die Naylor and Joe Marmo. The
latter will center the trio.

line-up that the Wolverines will

One big reason for the Illini

Leading the stratosphere-pierc-
ing contingent is latex-legged Don
Laz, whose unorthodox style and
fifteen-foot vault in practice
brought his name into national
headlines last year.
Lax established a dirt-runway
record recently with a vault of 14
feet 7% inches. He's capable of
the magic fifteen feet reached in
competition only by the fabulous
Cornelius Warmerdam and Par-
son Bob Richards.
But the brilliant Laz is only the
number one boy for the Illini in
Behind him is the veteran Dick
Coleman, who consistently leaves
the crossbar on its standards at 14
feet and better. In last season's
outdoor conference meet he placed
second to Laz at 13'6".
With a sweep in the event in
nearly every meet, those nine
points are very valuable to John-
son, and will be especially so if
they materialize against Canham's
