Cage Squad To See

Celley-Coached Pioneers
Search for Second Win

The old argument of pupil ver-
sus teacher comes up this week-
end when the University of Den-
ver hockey team faces off against
Michigan in the Coliseum at 8
p.m. tonight and tomorrow night.
The teacher, of course, is Michi-
gan's mentor, Vic Heyliger, and


Strauss House defeated Williams
for the independent swimming
championship, 34-23, while Phi
Delta Theta annexed the frater-
nity swimming crown at the ex-
pense of Sigma Nu, 33-24, last
night in the windup of intramural
competition this year.
One record was set as Strauss-
men John Gaebler, Brent Hamil
and Ben Schmiedeke combined to
cover the 75 yard medley relay in
38.9 seconds, breaking the old
intramural mark of 39.4 held by
Delta Upsilon since 1947.
GA E BL E R, Schmiedeke and
Hamil also accounted for all of
Strauss' individual victories,, tak-
ing the 25 yard breast stroke, 25
yard back stroke and 25 yard free
style events, respectively.
Jim Kalbfleisch, George Vala-
sis and Rusty Swaney swam to
individual triumphs for the Phi
Delts. Later, Valasis and Kalb-
fleisch teamed with Harry Seitz
to win the 75 yard medley relay
Bill Gay was Sigma Nu's only
individual winner while Wayne
Lambert, Mitch Sams, Larry Mil-
ler and Gay came home first in the
100 yard relay.
This afternoon at 4:30, John
Scopis, former I-M All-Campus
handball champion, and Paul
Stobbe will play the final match
of the Detroit roundrobin tourna-
ment on an Intramural Building

his squad will meet the team of
one of his most famous pupils,
Neil Celley.
* * *
CELLEY, at 24, is the youngest
major collegiate coach in the
country. As a Wolverine last sea-
son, he was top scorer, most valu-
able player, and he scored a "hat
trick" against the Denver squad
which he now coaches. He also
holds the all-time individual Wol-
verine record for season scoring.
Denver's current squad is
much the -same team Michigan
faced last year. The only men
lost were 'Center Norm Lupo-
vich, who dropped out of school,
and defenseman Lyle Drew, who
is ineligible.
Although last year was only
their second season of inter-col-
legiate play, the DU Pioneers
wound up with a season's record'
of 11 wins, 11 losses, and one tie.
Last season was the first that
Denver met Michigan, and the two
teams split the series, Michigan
winning the. first game, 5-4, and
the Pioneers taking the second,

A NATIVE OF Eveleth, Minn.,
Celley can throw an "all-Minne-
sota" forward line against the Wol-
verines, consisting of center Eddie
Miller, and Tony Pocrnich and
Jack Salo at wings. This line scor-
ed 104 of the Pioneers' 284 points
last season.
However, Celley has made
changes since the season open-
ed, and it is probable that he
will put Willis (Peanuts) O'-
Leary, who bagged 15 goals and
15 assists last year, at center,
moving Miller to defense. The
starting wings will probably be
Salo and Ben Wylie, another
veteran. Don Burgess, also a
veteran, will be at the other de-
fense post, and George Mooney,
last year's reserve goalie, is ex-
pected to be in the nets.
Denver has only had three hock-
ey contests so far this season, all
with Colorado College. They drop-
ped the opener, an exhibition
match for the Community Chest,
7-1, and then split a series at
Colorado Springs, 4-3 and 3-7.
However, the second game was
the only one which counts in the
Midwestern Collegiate Hockey
League standings, so at this point
the Pioneers stand tied with Mi-
chigan for the MCHL lead, with
two points apiece.
Heyliger will probably start
John Matchefts at center, and
John McKennell and Doug Phil-
pottat the wings. The starting de-
fensemen will be Reg Shave and
Jim Haas,
Goalie Willard Ikola, victim of
a rebound blast that knocked out
one tooth and chipped three more
late in the second Toronto con-
test, has been in the nets during
practice the past two days, and
he will probably start tonight.
The Wolverines will be seeking
their fifth win in six starts this
evening. So far this season,
Michigan has scored 34 goals to
13 for their opponents.

the quarter, setting the pace all

JOHN ROSS, Michigan's sensa-

the annual Sugar Bowl Invitation
The Sugar Bowl event is held
in conjunction with the football
extravaganza, and bids are ex-

GEORGE LYNCH, another sizz-

around the 16 laps in Yost Field
House to smash the former trials
record set in 1938 by R. Schwar-
zikoff in 9:42.6.
Freshman Brennan Gillespie
won the pole vault at 12'9", his
best jump so far. Head track
coach Don Canham calls him
"the greatest pole vault prospect
Michigan has ever had."

the meet as veteran Bill Hickman

THE VETERAN Quaker hard-
wood squad comes to town with a
4-0 record. Last year the Wolver-
ines won a 58-51 contest on Penn's
home floor.
Penn's Coach Howard Dal-
mar is blessed with a squad
composed of six returning let-
termen and seven freshman
award winners. Included in the
varsity veterans are four hold-
over starters,center ErnieBeck,
and guards Don Scanlon, Bob
Brooks and Tim Holt.
A strong candidate for All-Am-
erican honors, Beck is far and
away the biggest gun in the Quak-
er scoring attack. Last season, as
a sophomore, the six-foot four
inch pivot man piled up a 20.6
point average in 27 games, includ-
ing a Pennsylvania record of 36
counters against Dartmouth.
