Wolverine Hoopsters Battle
Spartans on Lansing Court

_ *.,

Michigan's twin scoring artists,
Neil Celley and Capt. Gil Bur-
A; ford, put on a one-man scoring
act last night at the Ice Coliseum
to lead a fast-skating Wolverine
sextet to a 9-5 victory over Tor-
onto University.
Celley and Burford both regis-
tered the "hat trick" with identi-
cal four-goal efforts and added
three and two assists respectively.
The defeat leaves -Toronto
with a 7-4 mark, but it must be
said that the Blues were play-
ing without the services of six
regular players, including Ernie
'Frey. and Phil Arrowsnmith, of
their starting line, and first
string goalie, Evan Leuty.
Matmen Seek
Ninth Straight
. AgainstMSC
Michigan's varsity mat masters
will try to make it nine straight
victories tonight at Yost Field
House when they tangle with a
rough Michigan State grappling
MICHIGAN STATE boasts wins
over such., reputable squads as
Iowa Illinois, Indiana, Pittsburgh
and Wisconsin by decisive mar-
gins. Their two defeats came at
the hands of power-laden Iowa
State Teachers College, last year's
collegiate champions, and Ohio
State, who finished second in the
Big Ten last year and are unde-
feated so far this year.
The Spartans are strongest in
the middleweight classes which
are sparked by Oris and George,
Bender at 157 and 167 and Gene
Gibbons who wrestles in the 177
- pound division.
Both George Bender and Gene
Gibbons are undefeated so far
this season and should provide
Wolverine Captain Bill Stapp and
veteran Bud Holcombe with some
rugged competition. Holcombe is
also undefeated this season in
seven matches, three of his victor-
ies coming via the pin route.
In addition to trying to avenge
last year's defeat by the Spartans
and endeavoring to prolong their
undefeated skien, the varsity
grapplers will play host to many
former Wolverine wrestlers who
wrestled under mat maestro, Cliff'

What started out to be a close-
ly-fought game soon turned into
a contest that was Michigan all
the way when Celley scored his
first goal and Burford his first
two before Toronto could break
the ice.
AT 7:46 CELLEY converted on
Burford's rebound following a
goal-mouth pass by Matchefts.
The same trio got together again
at 9:16, this time Burford capita-
lizing on Celley's rebound while
the Blues' Joe Kane was in the,
Burford made it 3-0 one min-
ute later ,on a breakaway that
waseneatly set up by Celley's
center ice pass.
At 12:02 Toronto's Rich How-
son broke past the Michigan de-
fense for an open shot and it was
3-1 until Celley scored again for
the Wolverines on another Bur-
ford rebound.
* * 5
IN THE SECOND period Celley
and Burford sandwiched two Tor-
onto goals that sent the score to
6-3 at the end of the second per-
Celley scored unassisted at
1:55 and Burford's goal came
on a sleeper set up by Alex Mc-
Clellan's pass at 14:01 after
Toronto's.Norm Fox had col-
lected two.
Earl Keyes lead off the three-
goal Michigan third period on a
power play with Toronto one
short. Four minutes later Celley
matched Dave Kent's goal with
the Blue's again shorthanded.
Then after Bill Walters had
scored Toronto's final goal, Bur-
ford took a Celley pass and slap-
ped in Michigan's ninth goal.
Tonight's game will start at 8

There's a definite back-to-the-
farm movement tonight as Michi-
gan's varsity cagers travel to East
Lansing where they will attempt
to capture the first major sport
triumph of the year over their
country brethren.
In three previous tries, one each
in football, basketball, and swim-
ming Michigan has gone down in
bitter defeat before State, and
only a cage win tonight will les-
sen the scorn of the rabid Spar-
tan fan.
BOTH TEAMS will carry mem-
ories of fresh upset wins into the
game. Last Monday MSC edged
Northwestern 52-48 while the
Wolverines tripped up Minnesota
in overtime by an identical score.
Pete Newell, the Spartan men-
tor, will rely on a strong de-
fense to annex a second win
over Michigan. State currently

leads the Big Ten in the defen-
sive department.
It is expected that Gordon
Stauffer and Sonny Means will
team up at the guard posts for
State, with Leif Carlson, Ray
Steffen and Bob Carey rounding,
out the starting five. Steffen is
leading the Spartan scorers with
an average of 10 points per tilt.
* . *
DESPITE THE excellent per-
formances of newcomers Doug
Lawrence and Sticks Williams in
the Gopher fracas Coach Ernie
McCoy will field the same combin-
ation that he has used throughout
the season. This consists of big
Leo VanderKuy at the pivot, Jim
Skala and Tom Tiernan at for-
ward, and Charlie Murray and
Bob Olson at guard.
Both the towering Williams
and the pygmy Lawrence will
be held in close reserve and
probably will see a lot of action.
The latter will get a chance to
face two of his high school team-
mates who now play for State,
Bill Bower and Gordon Stauffer.

In the last meeting of the tw.
quintets some of the worst bas-
ketball ever witnessed was dis-
played in Yost Field House for
the benefit of about 2000 fans.
* * *
sloppy contest State compiled a
25-19 half-time lead and coasted
from there on, stalling the last
ten minutes to win 49-36. Sonny
Meads, who came in as a substi-
tute in the closing minutes of the
first half, paced the Spartans with
15 points.
The loss was the Wolverines first
in 18 years to MSC in Yost Field
House, and things would really be
looking up if the Spartans were
forced to undergo another 18 year
victory famine.
Michigan, vith two wins and
six losses in Conference competi-
tion, is lodged in seventh place in
Big Ten standings. State lies a
couple of notches higher with an
overall four wins-five losses rec-

THREE MEN, NINE GOALS - Michigan's hockey captain, Gil Burford, Earl Keyes and Neil Celley
took the scoring honors in last night's 9-5 victory over Toronto University. Burford and Celley
accounted for four goals apiece, which, coupled with two and three assists respectively, sent their
individual scoring totals soaring. Celley now has 51 points (26 goals and 25 assists) and Burford,
45 (26 goals and 19 assists). Thus with seven games remaniing on the Wolverines' schedule both
are definite threats to Michigan's individual hockey scoring record of 64 points set by Burford last
year. Keyes' third period goal brought his season total to 29 points (15 goals and 14 assists).



Track Duell


Gym Squad,
Opens Season
At Minnesota
Coach Newt Loken's gymnastic
team opens their 1950 Western
Conference schedule tonight when
they meet the University of Min-
nesota at Minneapolis.
The Gopher squad is led by two
outstanding performers, Doug
Sorenson and George Patten. Sor-
enson is entered in all six events
in a bid to repeat his feat of last
years meeting when he placed
five times despite his team's loss,
to the Wolverines by a 52-44
The twenty-six year old Patten
will compete in all but one event.
Don Loken, Newt's younger bro-
ther, will be the Gophers' number
one tumbler and will appear on
the trampoline, also.
The Wolverines are definite
underdogs now that they are
without thei services of Pete Bar-
thell, Tom Tillman, and Gordon
Levenson, and are strong only in
the trampoline.

Leading Conference Thinclads
Clash in Champaign Fieldhouse

A slam bang duel between two
of the most powerful track teams
in their school's history will get
the attention of a goods share of
the track world Saturday, as the
Michigan cindermen journey to
Champaign to meet Illinois.
Wolverine Coach Don Canham
said that although Michigan has
its best team since he took over
the reins in 1948, the loss of Art
Henrie and Russ Tuttle to the
armed services, along with predic-
tions from Illini mentor Leo John-
Aon that he has his best squad in
his long tenture there combine to
produce the host team as a slight
MICHIGAN'S top strength lies
in the distance events and hurdles
while Illinois has distinct advan-
tage in the field events. Don Mc-
Ewen, Aaron Gordon, and Shel
Capp will see action in the mile
run, with McEwen, Del Hyde, and
Bill Hickman a good possibility
for a sweep in two mile run, the
weakest Illinois event.

who top 14' regularly, and Dick
Calisch who has done 13'8". Russ
Osterman and Tom Elmblad have
done 13'4" for Michigan.
BOB BARNUM and Al Berschet

The rest of the events are
very evenly balanced. Dave
Stinson and Bill Konrad lead
Michigan 60 yard dashmen,
while Al Rankin and Joe LaRue
top the quarter-milers. Chuck
Whiteaker will face tough com-
petition in the 880 from Lawton
Lamb who placed in the Big
Ten meet last year. Both have
run 1:56 races this year. Lamb
will also run the mile.
Inasmuch as both teams are
quite even in many events, and
their strong and weak events bal-
ance off evenly, it is quite likely
that the mile relay could be the
deciding event. Both relay quar-
tets have a top time of 3:23 thus
it leaves the prognosticator hang-
ing in midair.
Because of this great uncertain-
ty of the outcome and the prom-
ise of seeing th top Big Ten dual
squads in action, a full house is
expected for the meet. Also in
the minds of the fans is a pos-
sibility of getting a slight idea
as to how the Conference Indoor
Meet will go.
Larkins Criticizes
Big Time Football
COLUMBUS, O., (/P)-Big time
football yesterday drew a blast
from Athletic Director Dick Lar-
kins of Ohio State University-
a school which last year drew
$1,112,000 for five home games.
Larkins declared "Football is
being ruined. It's getting com-
pletely out of hand. It's a Frank-
enstein, a monster. Football is
killing itself."
The Buckeye chief said he
thought saturation of the air-
ways with football might be a
good thing for the game.

Bowling Green,

Matt Mann's swimmers seek
their fifth straight dual meet vic-
tory at the expense of a strong
Bowling Green team this evening
at Bowling Green, Ohio.
This meet will mark the first
time that Michigan and Bowling
Green swimming teams have met
each other and the initial appear-
ance of a Western Conference
athletic team on the Ohio school's

SAM COPER, coach of the
Bowling Green Falcons, brings a
6-2 record for the season into the
meet. One of the defeats was a
55-29 loss at the hands of Michi-
gan State, which is the identical
score of the State victory over
the Wolverines.
The Falcons promise to give
Michigan plenty of trouble in
the sprints in the persons of
Chuck Woodfill, a 24.0 man in
the 50 yard free style, and Don
Kepler and Harry Shearer, both
of whom have broken 53.0 in the
100. Captain Dave Neisch, Dick
Martin, Jim White, Bob Byberg,
and John Ries will face this trio
in the sprints and the 400 yard
free style relay.
Lee Koenig, who has recorded
a 2:21 time, will give Bernie Kahn,
Dick Howell, and Basil Considine
ample opposition in the 200 yard
breaststroke. John Bruce is not
expected to give Michigan's one-
two punch, John Davies and Stew
Elliott, much worry in the 200
yard breaststroke.
Jim Hartman and Frank Keller
will meet Bowling Green's Del
Ewing in the diving competition.
