Hockey Champions To Battle This Weekend,
As Wolverines Meet Toronto Six at Coliseum
* * * *
If the leading intellectuals of the
day don't have flowers growing
where cinders now lie, this year's
-version of the Michigan track
squad should pick up a few or-
chids of its own come meet time.
Coach Don Canham's talent-
loaded aggregation is reputed to
be one of the better ones in col-
legiate circles by the experts, and,
barring injuries and similar mis-
fortunes, a Big Ten championship
this year would surprise nobody.
ALTHOUGH there are no glar-
ing weaknesses in any of the var-
ious events except the pole vault,
it's the strength and depth of the
distance events that should pro-
vide the scoring punch when the
chips are on the table.
Headed by all-everything Don
McEwen, the harriers' captain,
the distane eme nshould virtu-
ally run away from everybody.
McEwen, whose specialty is the
two mile, also is a miler when
he's not out to break any rec-
He will be assisted in the two
mile event by letterman Bill Hick-
man, John Moule, and several
promising freshmen and sopho-
mores. In hte mile it will be let-
terman DeLance Hyde, sophomore
John Ross, Roy Christiansen, and
McEwen on occasions.
THE 880 IS another distance
event well stocked by proven com-
petitors. Lettermen Chuck White-
aker, shoeless George Jacobi and
Aaron Gordon, the latter a form-
er miler, will be aided by sopho-
more Bill Barton.
In the 60 yard dash the only
thing that stands between Can-
ham and complete poverty is
letterman Bill Konrad, who hap-
pens to be a star in his own
right. The rest of the dashers
are either unproven freshmen
and sophomores or injury-rid-
As far as early season indica-
tions can tell, the 440 will feature
the stellar performances of Joe
LaRue and Al Rankin, both letter-
men, and sophomore Jack Carroll
* * *
THE DEPARTURE of last year's
captain, Don Hoover, left a big
hole in both the low and high
hurdle events, but lettermen Van
Bruner and Wally Aatchison are
on hand to try and plug the gap.
Freshman "Junior" Stielstra will
assist the noble cause in the high
hurdiles, while Brune Boelster and
Jim Love will work on the low
In the field events all is well
except for the already-mention-
ed pole vault. That event was
jilted when returning letterman
Russ Osterman decided to par-
ticipate in the North - South
The fact that money is received
by the game's players will classify
Osterman as a professional and,
consequently, ineligible as far as
track is concerned.
The logical choice for vaulting
honors then goes to a freshman,
Gordon Gillespie, but rumor has
it that he will be scholastically in-
eligible after this term. Three
sophomores and , another fresh-
man are then all that are left.

Victor in Two Game Set
To Take Thompson Cup
The hockey champions of Cana-
da clash with the hockey cham-
pions of the United States in a
two game series this weekend at
At 8:00 p.m. tonight and tomor-
row Michigan's NCAA champions
play host to the University of
Toronto pucksters who hold the
Canadian Senior Intercollegiate
THE WINNER of the series will
receive the James C. Thompson
Gold Cup which has been taken
out of its showcase for the first
time in three years.
The trophy is only emblematic
of the Michigan-Toronto series
and although it is unique that
both teams are the 1950-51
champions from their respective
domains, presentation of the cup
will have no official internation-
Since the series is orgv two
games, the possibility of a split
has resulted in the ruling that the
team scoring the mc t goals will
get the award.
THE CUP was awarded twice
before, the last time being in 1948
when the two rivals met in Chi-
cago for the benefit of the Mercy
Hospital there. The 1;lverines
have taken the honor both times.
The two schools met on the
ice in the last two seasons but
the trophy was kept out of cir-
culation until this year.
In both years the series were
divided. The Wolverines won hst
year's opener 9-5 but dropped the
second contest 6-4. In overall
competition Toronto holds an
edge over the Wolverines with 11
wins to Michigan's five with one
game a tie.
BILL WADE, who is in his
freshman year as coach of the
Blues of Toronto, has nine men
back from last year's champion-
Doug Orr is back in the nets for
the Blues. Orr is a protege of Syl
Apps, but he has stuck to goal-
tending unlike the famous Maple
Veterans Phil Arrowsmith and
Ernie Frey comprise Toronto's first
line along with Red Stephan.
Stephan is a newcomer to the
team but has a- good deal of ex-
perience behind him in the Scot-
tish Hockey League of Canada.
On defense the Blues will pre-
sent another strong combination
in Joe Kane and Jack McKenzie.
Levitt Inj ured;
Jack Levitt, 6-2 junior from De-
troit, was injured in a scrimmage
session and will be lost to the

were linebacker Chuck Boerio, the
team's most valuable player, safe-
