For Indiana
Michigan's promising wrestlers
will depart this morning for
loomington, Indiana, where they
will encounter an Indiana squad
which could cause trouble.
Coach Cliff Keen announced
yesterday a traveling squad of ten
4nen, five of whom are newcom-
ers this year.
* , *
JOE ATKINS, a freshman from
Red Bank, New Jersey, who can
)make weight at either 115 or 123
pounds, has been selected by Keen
to grapple at the latter weight.
At 130 pounds Keen plans to
start Norvard (Snip) Nalan, a
very promising sophomore. Usu-
ally Larry Nelson fills this posi-
tion, but an injured knee will
keep the Conference 123-pound
champion from wrestling in this
meet,
Jack Gallon, ever reliable junior
from. Toledo, Ohio, will again give
1confidence and probably points to .
the Michigan cause when he grap-
ples at 137 pounds.
DAVE SPACE, the regular 147-
pounder for the past two years,
has been shifted to 157 pounds be-
cause of the injury to Miles Lee,
4 regular 157-pounder.
Space's position will be ably
filled by Joe Scandura, i com-
petent junior from Long Island.
Scandura was the regular wrest-
ler last year at 137 pounds and
came in fourth in the Big Ten
meet.
1 Captain Bud Holcombe will
again perform in the 167-pound
bracket as he has for the past two
years.
DICK O'SHAUGNESSY, a 177-
pound sophomore out of Seaford,
New York, draws the starting po-
sition in the light heavyweight di-
vision.
wiAt heavyweight Moose Dunne
wil again provide stalwart opposi-
tion for all aspiring Hoosiers in
the unlimited class.
Also making the trip to Bloom-
ington will be Ron Horne, who
will compete in an exhibition at
191 pounds, and Carlton Colcord,
a middleweight, who will be taken
along for security purposes.

NU SWIM MEET TOMORROW:
Mann Counts on First-Year Free-stylers

By NEIL BERNSTEIN
The Wolverine hockey team will
meet its oldest puck rivals tonight
and tomorrow night at 8:00 in the
Coliseum, when the Minnesota
Gophers come to town.
The game tonight is worth two
points in the league race, and is
also the 107th hockey match be-
tween the two squads. The series
began in 1922 with a 6-3 win for
Minnesota. The Gophers current-
ly hold a 58-39 series margin with
nine ties on the books.

Iowa-Indiana Tilt Features Big Ten Play

All Hoop Squads
Move into Action
While the top and the bottom
rung of the Big Ten basketball
ladder meet in Ann Arbor tomor-
row night, the eight in-between
conference members are scheduled
to fight for hoop glory on four
battlefronts.
Top billing must go to the clash
between undefeated Iowa (9-0)
and once-beaten Indiana (8-1) at
Iowa City.
* *,*
COACH Bucky O'Connors' tall
Hawkeyes, fresh from an eight-
point triumph over the Wolver-
ines, share the conference lead
with the Illini and Purdue.
Indiana will have its hands
full with center Chuck Darling
and guard Bob Clifton, pace-
setters of a Hawkeye attack
which has averaged 64.2 points.
Darling has an average per game
of 22.6 points on a 203-point

total. Clifton has hit the cords
for 124 markers, an average of
13.7 per ball game.
Hoosier coach Branch McCrack-
en has impressive height to go
with a well - balanced scoring
attack. Freshman center Don
Schlundt stands 6-9, and he is
sided by forwards Dick Farley and
Bob Leonard (both 6-3) and the
back-court duo of Bob Masters
and Sam Miranda.
Big gun in the Indiana offense
is Leonard. The lanky forward
hit for 18 points in a 58-46 defeat
of Michigan and then followed
with 19 in a one-point loss to Ohio
State.
MICHIGAN STATE and Minne-
sota, beaten by two of the na-
tion's ten undefeated major col-
lege teams (Iowa and Illinois) in
their Big Ten openers, tangle in
Williams Arena at Minneapolis.
A duel looms between the cen-
ters of these two fives. Ed Kala-
fat, Gopher big boy who was
held to just two points by Illi-
nois after averaging 18 points a
game beforehand, will face rug-
ged Bob Carey, the Spartans'
All-American football end.
After trouncing Northwestern,
82-49, which gave the Spartans
their eighth triumph in nine out-
ings, Coach Pete Newell can boast
12 players that broke into the
scoring column against the Wild-
cats.
* * *
SURPRISING Purdue, which
has already exceeded all pre-sea-
son predictions by compiling a 6-2
record travels to Evanston to face
Northwestern.
The Boilermakers feature a
triple-threat scoring attack pac-
ed by Carl McNulty, veteran sen-
ior center. McNulty hit fors371
tallies in 22 encounters last sea-
son, and has already racked up
118 markers in the first eight
tussles of 1951-52.
Northwestern's flag hopes were

seriously hurt in the loss to Michi-
gan State when captain Bernie
Brady, fifth highest scorer in
1950-51, was put on the shelf with
a serious arm injury,
Forward Larry Dellefield heads
Northwestern with 30 tallies in
two Big Ten outings.
*~ * *
FINAL Saturday night action
finds Ohio State's wonder five at
Wisconsin.
Its lineup loaded with second
and third stringers, the Buck-
eyes pulled one of the biggest
upsets of the year by downing
fourth-rated Indiana, 73-72..
Forward Dick Dawe, with his
only score of the night, brought
about the "impossible"-hitting on
a hook shot with three seconds to
go.
* * *
WISCONSIN has dropped clash-
es to Illinois and Purdue despite
a tricky zone defense employed by
Coach Bud Foster.
Six-foot-seven-inch center Paul
Morrow was a thorn in the side of
the Illini in a four-point loss. The
towering soph found the range
for 14 tallies, and was backed up
by guard Ab Nicholas with eleven
good ones.

in fine shape for the contest,
with the exception of George
Chin, who pulled a muscle Wed-1
nesday in practice.1
If Chin is not ready to play,t
Heyliger will probably start Bob1
Heathcott, Ron Martinson and
Doug Mullen on the front line,
Jim Haas and Reg Shave at de-
fense, and Willard Ikola in the
nets.
* * *
THE MINNESOTA squad suf-
fered quite a few personnel losses;
since last year, which include six
of their top seven scorers of a
year ago. The only one who is
still playing for the Maroon and
Gold is Captain Russ Strom of
Duluth.
However, the Gophers have
one of the finest groups of
freshmen and sophomores in
the entire league. Outstanding
newcomer is John Mayasich, a
freshman from Eveleth, and
former teammate of Michigan's
Ikola and John Matchefts.
Mayasich is currently the lead-
ing Minnesota scorer with 12 goals
and 10 assists for a total of 22
points in 10 games. Ije is flanked
by two other freshmen, Ken Yack-
el and Dick Dougherty, who are
second and third scorers, respec-
tively, on the squad. So far this
season, this "pony" line has ac-
counted for 27 of the Gophers' 60
goals.
The game could possibly develop
into a personal goalies' duel, since
Ross and Ikola easily might be
considered the two top goalies in
college hockey.

Return of Ettl
Brightens Gym
Squad .Picture
A bit of good news made its way
into t h e Michigan gymnastic
camp yesterday when it was
learned that Captain Connie Ettl
would be able to make the trip to
Indiana for the Wolverines sea-
son opener Saturday.
Ettl, in Health Service earlier
this week with tonsilitis, worked
out slightly with the squad yester-
day. In his weakened condition it
is certain that he will not be able
to give a top performance, but
Coach Newt Loken expressed hopes
that he will be able to compete in
all of his events.
THE RETURN of Ettl was es-
pecially cheering in that it gave
the team an additional seasoned
performer. The loss of Stick Da-
vidson, due to ineligibility, reduced
the number of men on the squad
who have seen Big Ten competi-
tion to three. Davidson was the
team's top trampoline performer.

(Fifth in a series of articles deal-
ing with the 1952 Michigan swimming
team. Today's article covers the free-
stylers.)
By BOB MARGOLIN
Matt Mann is placing the free-
style burden squarely on the
shoulders of a flock of first-year
performers and a few veterans,
but the genial swimming mentor is
confident his charges will come
through.
The free-stylers get a look at
some stiff- competition tomorrow
evening when the Wolverines open
their dual meet and Big Ten sea-
son against Northwestern in the
IM pool. Captain Jim Erkert,
Keith Peterson, and Buddy Wallen
provide the Wildcats with a fast
trio of free-stylers.
MANN IS CONFIDENT that his
free-style men' will be an ade-
quate match for the visitors, how-
ever. In fact he predicts that the
Michigan sprinters are fast enough
to break the 400-yard relay mark
of 3:21.8 held by Yale before the
season is over.
Slated to take the first crack
at the record are sophomores
Don Hill and Tom Benner and
freshmen Burwell "Bumpy"
Jones and Ron Gora, all top-

notch sprinters. They will get
their chance against Northwest-
tern tomorrow night.
Other sprinters who will be used
in, the relay and short distance
events are freshmen Jim Ford and
Jim McKevitt, sophomore John
Ries, and senior Dick Martin.
Ries and McKevitt will be called
on to beat Northwestern's out-
standing sprinters, Erkert and Pe-
terson, according to Mann. In
tomorrow night's 220, Gora and
McKevitt will find their biggest
competition in the person of
Wallen.
* * *
LONG DISTANCE chores on this
year's Michigan squad will be han-
dled mainly by the versatile Jones
and veterans Wally Jeffries and
Wayne Leengran.
Although he has yet to swim
in a Michigan dual meet, young
Jones already carved a niche for
himself among the ranks of
great Wolverine swimmers in
setting a new IM Pool record for
the quarter-mile last month,

covering the distance in 4:41.4
in the Michigan A.A.U. meet.
in the same meet a year earlier,
Jones, than a high school senior at
Redford in Detroit, breezed to vic-
tories over former Michigan cap-
tain Charley Moss in the 150-yard
medley and Jeffries in the quar-
ter-mile.
* * *
JEFFRIES, A junior, is another
Wolverine who is looking forward
to a good year. He will be out to
improve his fairly successful sea-
son of last year which he climaxed
by placing fourth in the quarter-
mile in the Big Ten meet in Min-
neapolis and fifth in'the 200-yard
haul.
A junior who should help the
Michigan long distance cause is
Leengran, who placed fifth in the
1500-meter cruise in last year's
Big Ten meet.
Although the quality of the
long distance swimmers can not
be disputed, Coach Mann has lit-
tle depth to back up the trio of
Jones, Jeffries and Leengran.

Canham Places Field Hopes
On Freshmen and Sophomores

The first in a series of articles,
dealing with the prospects of the
Michigan trackteam. Today's ar-
ticle covers the field events.
By ED SMITH
{ The field events loom as a ques-
tion mark in the Michigan track
picture.
As with the rest of coach Don
Canham's thinclad squad, much
t hope is placed on fine freshmen
and sophomore prospects.
WOLVERINE trackmen will find
competition unusually keen in the
field events. Illinois, expected to
be the team to beat in Big Ten
competition, will probably supply
the operatives who will cause the
Wolverines the most trouble.
In the pole vault the Illini are
v as usual the strongest team in
the Conference. Dick Coleman,
a better than 14-foot vaulter,
' Dick Calish, and James Wright
lead the Illini contingent.
Michigan, will pin its hopes on
youth in the persons of freshman
Brennen Gilespie and sophomores
Roger Maugh and Pat Montagno.
Gilespie especially shows fine
promise, but is yet quite inexper-
ienced.
THE SHOT PUT is expected to
be a Wolverine strong point. The
Maize and Blue has four standout
performers in Roland Nilsson, Tom
Johnson, Roy Pella, and Leo
Schlicht.
Nilsson, who participated as a

discus thrower in the 1948 Olym-
pics under the Swedish flag and
Johnson, a point winner in the
event last year, are good bets
to score. Schlicht, just a fresh-
man, has fine prospects.
Competition will probably come
from Bob Carey and "James
Schleisswohl of Michigan State
and Illinois' Mary Bershet. Carey,
Big Ten defending champ, won
the event last year with a 53-foot
toss.,
LAST YEAR'S outstanding high
jumpers will be around again this
year for another crack at the title.
The Illini have outstanding jump-
ers in Thomas Floyd and freshman
John Mitchell, last season's Illinois
State high school champ.
Also back is James Harper of
Indiana. Harper won the con-
ference outdoor title last year
with a jump of 6 feet 3 inches.
Both Harper and Floyd share
the Big Ten indoor crown with
Ralph Scheafer of Ohio State.
The Wolverines will rely on Bol
Evans, Howard Liverence, anc
Dave Heintzman. All consistentl3
clear better than 6 feet.
The Maize and Blue has fine
prospects in the broad jump. Hor
ace Coleman, Lowell Perry, and
Junior Stielstra head the squad
Coleman, fourth in the Big Tel
last winter can do over 24 feet
Stielstra, a freshman who als
hurdles, was the Michigan state
champ last year.

CON F E RENCE IN T HE CL OUDS
Among the undergraduates on any college campus, you'll find
the talk reaching up to the clouds. And once in a while -in a class-
room, around a study table, or even in a bull session -a really big
idea is born.
Big ideas come, too, from the men and women in laboratories,
business offices, shops. But often these professionals are exploring
a path first glimpsed in college.
How do we know? Because of the many college people who
have come into the Bell System, where big ideas and a lot of dreams
have taken their place in progress. The human voice, carried along
a wire, first across a town, then a state, a nation, and now the world.
