At the start of the second
period the Wolverines extended
their lead to 4-0 as Ron Martin-
son converted a rebound of Bob
Heathcott's shot. The goal was
the termination of a three man
Michigan attack that caught the
Pioneers with only onedefenge-
man back.
Denver soon broke the ice with
their first tally as the result of a'
screen shot by Bill Abbott that was
deflected off Keyes into the Mich-
igan nets. But 15 seconds later
Pat Cooney got that one back for
the Wolverines who attacked dir-
ectly from the face off and made
the score 5-1.

Mann Leads Natators South
To Annual Swimming Clinic
Coach Matt Mann will take 18 of his star natators with him to the
annual Men's Intercollegiate Swimming Clinic during the Christmas
vacation at Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The national swimming clinic, which was started in 1935, annually
attracts swimmers and coaches from all over the country. Five hundred
are expected to attend the affair this year.
THE HIGHLIGHT of the two-week clinic will be the annual meet
between the East and West. The Wolverines will swim on the West
squad since the dividing line between the sections of the country for
the meet is the Alleghanies.
The western swimmers have yet to lose in this series of meets
which dates back to the inauguration of the clinic. The West
trounced the East in the 1950 Christmas Day meet, 37-18, as the
Wolverines' John, Davies, Stew Elliott, Bernie Kahn, Don Hill,
Barry Wayburn, and Dick Spero all contributed points in the win-
ning cause.
All the Big Ten tank squads, except Michigan State and Minne-
sota, will be in Florida for the clinic. Michigan and Ohio State are ex-
pected to pace the western swimmers, while Yale wil dominate the
eastern squad.
* * * *
THE EAST-WEST MEET consists for the most part of relay events.
200-meter and 400-meter relays are scheduled for free-stylers, breast-
strokers, and backstrokers. Both the East and West will in all prob-
ability enter several teams in each relay.
The only individual event listed for the meet is a 400-meter
free-style race. Wayburn placed third in one section of this event
last year.
In addition to the actual swimming a number of the leading coach-
es of the country will give their views on various phases of swimming
and diving, in the morning sessions of the clinic.
All of the races and swimming demonstrations will be held in a
50-meter pool (approximately 55 yards).
Members of the Michigan team making the Florida journey must
pay their own expenses. The following will make the trip: Mark Ottati,
Charlie Bates, Tom Benner, John Sampson, Wally Jeffries, Spero, Tom
Potter, Jim White, Wayne Leengran, John Chase, John Ries, Wayburn,
Dick Martin, Jim Ford, Ron Gora, Jim Walters, Bumpy Jones, and

Before the middle stanza ended,
Abbott scored his second goal and
then Jack Salo made it 5-3.
The teams matched goals in
the final period as Jim Haas
scored on an unassisted effort
r and Matchefts shoved in his
second goal from close in.
Tony Pocrnich and Dave Wylie
F tallied for Denver. The, latter's
goal was off Michigan's substitute
goalie, freshman Bill Lucier, who
had replaced Ikola with seven
minutes to play.
IKOLA was only being rested in
view of his recent mouth injury
that has impaired his eating.
George Chin was a casualty
of the evening as he injured a
shoulder in the third period and
may not be able to see action in
tonight's return match.
The victory gives the Wolverines
the lead in the Midwestern Col-
legiate Hockey League with four
points as a result of two victories
and no defeats. Michigan now has
a season's record of five and one.
TONIGHT'S contest is also a
league affair and if Denver can
get even they can deadlock the
Wolverines for the lead. The Pio-
neers have- one victory and two
points in MCHL play to go along
with last night's defeat.

In losing, t h e Wolverines
showed great improvement over
their two previous performances.
They were in the game all the
way, as evidenced by the fact
that the lead changed hands a
total of 11 times during the 40
minute contest.
'M' improved their field goal
percentage from 17 per cent in the
Butler game, to a one-out-of-three
record last night. The victors hit
on 42 per cent of their shots from
the floor. At the free throw line,
the losers dropped in six-out-of-

LEADING THE Michigan scor-

points, followde by Captain Jim
Skala, 15, and Don Eaddy, 12. Milt
Mead, who collected only one
field-goal, fouled out early in the
third quarter.
In addition to Beck, the Qua-
kers had a high scorer in for-
ward Dick Heylmun who collect-
ed a total of 20 points on nine
baskets and two charity tosses.
The alternating leads at the end
of each of the quarters gives in-
dications to the see-saw type of
contest. The first period ended
with the surprising high score of
24-22, Michigan leading. Pennsyl-
vania walked off the court at half-
time with a 38-34 edge.
In the third period fans saw 'M'
pull up to a 54-52 advantage, only
to lose out in the final three min-
utes of play.

COACH ERNIE McCoy contin-
ued his policy of experimentation
with various groups by using a to-
tal of 13 men in the contest. The
Quakers, on the other hand, used
only seven of their 10 man travel-
ling squad.
Pennsylvania used the pick off
play to perfection when they took
the ball out from under the Michi-
gan basket. Three times they lined
up, broke, found a man in the
clear, and registered a two-pointer.

take-off on the I' formation which

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.- (AP) - Unde-
feated Illinois, flashing a smoothly
rounded offense, won its fourth
straight basketball g a m e last
night,, defeating North Carolina
Except for the opening minutes,
when North Carolina managed an
8-8 tie, the visiting Tarheels never
were able to match Illinois' run-
and-shoot game.
The Illini, ranked third in the
country this week by Associated
Press member editors, were in
front 44-34 at halftime and, in the
game's later stages, steadily pulled
The Illinois offense revolved
a r o u n d the under-the-basket
shooting of centers Johnny Kerr
and Bob Peterson. Kerr, a 6-foot
9-inch sophomore, was a surprise
starter in place of Peterson and led
Illinois scoring with 17 points.
IOWA CITY, Ia.--(P)-The Iowa
Hawkeyes played one of their best
defensive games of the season last
night in beating Oklahoma of the
Big Seven Conference, 59-46.

Both teams were colder than the
near zero night air as the Sooners
hit only 25 per cent of their field'
goals while the Hawks fared little
better at 27 per cent.
However, Iowa's height and ex-
perience told on defense. The
Hawks gave up only three field
goals in the last 16 minutes of
play and held Oklahoma to 15
points the last half.
The Sooners hung on in the,
early stages through the work of
forward Sherm Norton who got 15
of his 21 points in the first half.
After Oklahoma managed its only
lead of the game, 18-17, at the
start of the second quarter, Iowa

Wrestlers Prepare for Coming Season

Happy Holiday

Not as fortunate as the rest of
the University's students, t h e
members of the Varsity wrestling
squad will be forced to cut their
Christmas vacations short be-
cause of official business.
The Wolverine grapplers open
their 1952 season against the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh's squad Jan-
uary 5 at Pittsburgh.
* * *
LAST YEAR the Panthers suc-
cumbed 16-11, but a sprinkling of
seasoned veterans dispersed among
a fine group of sophomores (who
as freshman last year massacred
the varsity), promises to make this
season's clash a more severe test.
Of the forty men who have been
working out in the maize and
blue-matted wrestling room in the
Intramural Building, Keen hopes
to select ten to make the trip to
* * *
THIS WILL include one man
for each of the weight classes and
two alternates, most likely at the
lighter weights.
In the lower weights, it figures
to be Larry Nelson returning to
his spot at 123 lbs. where he won
the conference crown last season.

Dick Atkins and Duke Naylan
faces Nelson in his attempt to re-
tain his position.
At the 130 lb. spot there is a
big "if" with junior letter-win-
ner Jack Gallon the man in
question. Gallon, who turned in
an amazing performance in his
sophomore year has added some
avoirdupois and a doubt is pres-
ent as to whether or not he will
be able to make the limit.
If he is unable to do so, Keen
will be forced to shift one of the
123 lb. men up to the heavier
Gallon will then find himself
competing with Joe Scandura, an-
other returnee from the 1951 team
for the 137 lb. slot. At 147 lbs. it
figures to be the powerful Dave
Space, back again to try his luck
in conference competition.
Space will be supported by
freshman Andy Kaul, a new-
comer who has had all hands
buzzing by his impressive pre-
season work.
Miles Lee, scrappy sophomore
157-pounder is fairly certain of a
starting berth for the Pittsburgh
match. Lee is another young
wrestler who has great promise

and the coaching staff is anxious-
1y awaiting his baptism under fire
in the Smoky City.
* *
AT 167 LBS., Bud Holcombe is
back and w o r k i n g earnestly
towards earning another "M" in
the mat sport.
Dick O'Shaughnessy offensive
center on this past season's
Michigan football team, will give
an exhibition of athletic versa-
tility as he doffs his gridiron
garb and dons wrestling toggery
to compete in the 177 lb. spot
for the Wolverines.
In the heavyweight class it ap-
pears as if Coach Keen will again
rely on gigantic Moose Dunne to
bear the brunt of competition
against the mastadons of the
grappling sport.
