Eight Newcomers
To Play for Blue
(Continued from Page 1)
Raz, Jack Mayes and Gordon King
who all hail from Canada.
MSC has a strong and exper-
ienced second line centered by Bill
McCormick, with juniors Bob Re-
you and Ray Brooks on the.wings.
IN THE NETS for the Spartans
will be Del Reid, a senior from De-
troi twho has two years of ex-
perience behind him.
On defense in front of Reid
will be Dick Northey, Connie
Buck and Dick Lord, a trio of
juniors who will be joined by
newcomer Jerry Nicoli.
Wolverine coach, Vic Heyliger,
who once had Bessone playing for
him at the University of Illinois,.
will counter with a squad of sim-
ilar experience that shows eight
returning men from last year.
HEADING the first line will be
Captain Earl Keyes who will have
a pair of sophomores at the wings,
George Chin and Pat Cooney.
(>oney has been bothered by a
groin injury but will see action
Heyliger also has a very strong
second line that is sparked by
speedsters John McKennell and
John Matchefts, both juniors.
A sophomore, Doug Philpot, is
the third man in this combina-
Another pair of newcomers,
Doug Mullen and Ron Martinson,
will form Heyliger's third offen-
sive line along with either Paul
Pelow or Gordie Naylor, a pair of
reserve forwards from last year's
Eddie May is the regular center
on this line but he is currently
laid up with the flu. It is also
possible that defenseman Bob
Heathcott may see some action
on the forward line.
Besides Heathcott on defense
will be Graham Cragg and Alex
McClellan, holdovers from last
year's team, and sophomores Jim
Haas and Reggie Shave, all sup-
porting Michigan's new goaltend-
er, Willard Ikola.
Boston 3, Chicago 1

Michigan's magician of the mats
is working again.
Blessed with a wealth of exper-
ienced material Coach Cliff Keen
is preparing his wrestlers for the
start of the 1951-52 season, his'
27th at the helm of the Maize
and Blue grapplers.
PROSPECTS for the grapplers
appear good at this point with
lettermen returning at seven of
the eight starting positions.
Heading the list of returnees
are Larry Nelson and Jack Gal-
lon who came in first and sec-
ond respectively for the Wover-
ines in the annual Big Ten meet
last March at Evanston.
Nelson, a 123 pound senior, has
been a Michigan stalwart ever
since his sophomore year, and this
year Keen is hoping will be no
exception. Last year he was un-
defeated in regular season match-
es and also in the Western Con-
ference Championships.

GALLON, although only a jun-
ior, was undefeated last year in
regular season competition and
met his first defeat in the Big Ten
meet. Dick Picard of Ilinois ad-:
ministered the bad medicine in
the 130 pound finals.I
At 137 pounds Joe Scandura
is returning for his second year
of grappling. Last year he fin-
ished third in his division at
Evanston and provided Wolver-
ine mat fans with a real hope
for the future. Scandura is
blessed with a great amount of
natural ability and even more
wonderful things are predicted
for him this year than last.
Dave Space, at 147 pounds, has
been a Wolverine standout for two

Joe Planck, a third place finish-
er in the Big Ten and Art Dunne,
are expected to return to fill the,
light heavyweight and heavyweight
But where ever or whenever,
there is a weak link in this line-
up, Keen will certainly have the
material to make a change.
* * *
LAST YEAR'S freshmen were
one of the most fruitful crop ever,
and under the careful eye of As-
sistant Coach Bob Betzig they
were brought along to a point
where they can challenge almost
any of the Wolverine starters.
Snippy Nalan at 123 pounds,
Bruce Bemis at 137, Myles Lee at
157, Doug O'Shaughnessy at 177
and Don Bennett in the heavy-
weight division all promise to give
any of the Wolverine grapplers a
good battle.
So who will start in the first
dual meet of the season on Janu-
ary 5 is still very much undecided.

Michigan's JV basketball team
opens their eight-game schedule
tonight meeting Hillsdale College
JV's at Hillsdale.
Game time is 6:30 p.m. The tilt
is a preliminary to a Hillsdale
College Varsity contest.
Assistant Coach Dave Strack
is taking an eight-man squad
to battle the Dales composed
of three freshmen, three sopho-
mores and a pair of juniors.
Strack said he would start
Freshmen Ralph Kauffman and
Bruce Allen at the forward posi-
tions and Freshman Bob Jewell at
center. Starting guards will be
Dave Krupp and Sid Cook. Krupp
is a junior and Cook a sophomore.
Other members of the team are
Sophomores George Dutter and
Thad Stanford and Junior Bill
Wisner. Strack said he planned to
give each player plenty of time
in the game.

March, Keen is counting on him
to regain his usual winning ways.
the graduation route, the 157
pound classification offers the
only break in the Woverine start-
ing lineup.
The 167 pound group is head-
ed by this year's captain, Bud
Holcomb. Holcombe, who earn-
ed one letter before the war,
came back last year and enjoyed
an undefeated season. Even
though he was eliminated early
in the Conference meet, every-
thing indicates that he will

Pi Lambda Phi scored a surpris-
ing 4-3 volleyball victory over Phi
Delta Theta last night in a semi-
final fraternity game to sweep into
a finals berth opposite Zeta Beta
Tau next Wednesday night.
The Phi Delts, who had won
all of their 22 games this sea-
son, swept through the first3
last night and were at match
point in the fourth before the
tide turned and the Pi Lams
stormed back to win that game
and the next three to earn one
of the finals spots.
Tom Fabian and Jules Belkin
stood out for the winners.
Zeta Beta Tau scored an easy
4-0 victory over Delta Tau Delta
in the other semi-final game. The
ZBT squad has lost only one game
all season and should offer the Pi
Lams some stiff competition in the
finals next week.
In the only swimming meet of
the day, Delta Kappa Epsilon de-
feated Acacia, 33-23. The Dekes
were led by Brydon Dow. Jim
Watson, and John Ingold. Most of
the winners' points were picked up
in their victories in the free style
relay, the breast stroke, the back-
stroke, and the medley relay.
