THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Puck men, Back on Homie Ice, Face North
By JIM PARKER
Michigan will take on a tough
r North Dakota sextet tonight in
the first of a two-game series
that will go a long way toward
determining the Wolverines' chan-
ces to gain their fourth straight
bid to the NCAA hockey cham-
Both tonight's and tomorrow
night's games will start at 8 o'-
clock at the Coliseum.
. COMMISSIONER SAYS 'NO':
of Fix Evidence
AT THE present, three teams,
Michigan, Colorado College and
North Dakota are the top three
contending clubs for the two bids
from the Western NCAA district
to the four-team tournament that
will again be held at Colorado
Springs, March 15, 16 and 17.
The two teams from the
Western district will be selected
at a later date on- the basis of
their records against teams in
Michigan owns the top record
in Western district play with a
7-2 won-lost mark. Colorado is in
a close second with 9 won and 3
lost and North Dakota follows
with a 53 mark.

Don McEwen's attempt to run a nine minute two mile, and in the
process break two world records, will be the big event tonight as the
Wolverine trackmen play host to the always tough Michigan State
Normal team at Yost Fieldhouse at 7:30 p.m.
Coach Don Canham is giving McEwen his biggest chance of the
indoor season as far as the two mile race is concerned. The Canadian
Ace is entering the sixteen lap grind only, whereas he usually ran
the mile run followed by his favorite two mile just a half hour or so
later, naturally slowing the time on his always good performance.
ALMOST ASSURED of being bettered by McEwen is his own in-
door dirt track college and world record of 9:06.9 set last year. Also
in danger, but more remotely so, is Don Lash's time of 8:58.3, the all-
time record by a college runner in the two mile, set outdoors in 1936.
Catching the second spotlight will be the Hurons' great dash-
man Jim Bibbs. Bibbs tied the Yost Fieldhouse and set a new
Michigan AAU record last month as he ran a :06.2 60 yard dash
here i1n the Michigan AAU meet.
Giving the MSNC speedster his main competition will be Wolver-
ines Bill Konrad,, Dave Stinson, and John Wilcox.
THE 440 YARD dash will also find the Hurons giving Michigan}
top competition, as they have two men, Stan McConnor and Ab Ulmer,
who have quite often done the distance in less than fifty seconds flat.
Sophomore dashmen Al Rankin and Joe LaRue lead the Wolverine
cause, with both approaching fifty flat as their best time.
Because of this abundance of top quarter-milers on both
squads, a very tough fight is expected in the mile relay race, with
a resulting good time from the intenseness of the competition.
Some switching and experimenting is planned by Canham as he
runs his men through their last meet before the Conference Indoor
Meet to be held at Champaign Marsh 2 and 3.

AARON GORDON has been shifted from the mile to the two mile
run, a race he had considerable experience with last year. Del Hyde
is being shifted from the two mile to mile run, leaving Bill Hickman
as McEwen's second Wolverine competitor. Ed Aylmer, Normal's Na-
tional Junior cross country champ is also looked on to give the Ottawa
junior stiff competition in his title bid.
