BY GEORGE FLINT
HE One-Man Gang is back in the Big Ten.
When the news came out of Iowa City earlier this week that
Forrest Evashevski, one of the most ferocious blockers ever to wear
the Maize and Blue, had been hired as football coach for the Univer-
sity of Iowa, old-time Wolverine fans breathed happy sighs.

his last coaching job was at Washington State-Evashevski
turning to the scene of his greatest triumphs, the midwest
Big Ten.

was re-
and the

It was back in the fabulous days of Tom Harmon, when the
hip-swinging flash from Gary was setting the Conference on its
ear. The high-scoring halfback was All-American in 1939-40.
But he rated an assist from his quarterback. This reporter still
remembers an action shot from one of the games of that era
in which Harmon was getting off one of his great "pressure"
punts. Three yards in front of him the lithe and explosive
Evashevski was placing a vicious cross-body block on THREE
onrushing linemen.
That was the way it went back in those halcyon days of Michi-
gan football. Harmon and Paul Kromer did the running, and the
way was cleared by quarterback Evashevski, whose speed and timing
on the downfield blocks were bywords in the Big Ten.
* * * *
New Life at Iowa City
He wasn't the greatest signal-calling quarterback Michigan has
had. Nor was he the best ballhandler. But for effective blocking
out of the single wing Evashevski has had few peers. It is quite prob-
able that he'll instill some of his competitive spirit and attention to
fundamentals into the game up at Iowa City.
The Hawkeyes have had great potential for the last couple of years,
but have failed to live up to expectations. So the authorities at Iowa
brought the former Michigan great to the campus with the incentive
of a topflight salary-a reported $14,000.
This is $2000 more than Dr. Eddie Anderson was getting at the
Hawkeye helm. Evashevski will also have the right to name his
assistants.
His appointment brings to four the number of Michigan men
(graduates and former coaches) who are new head coaches in
the Western Conference. Besides Bennie Oosterbaan at the
Wolverine helm, and Evashevski, Ivy Williamson of Wisconsin
and Clarence (Biggie) Munn of Michigan State bear the Maize
and Blue stamp.
The latter was a Minnesota graduate, but for many years was
line coach here and thus thoroughly indoctrinated in the Michigan
system of football.

Overflow of Talent
TAKING a quick flip from football fields to natatoriam; it may
come as a surprise to some, after last year's mediocre showing, that
the 1952 edition of Matt Mann's swimming team looks to be the
strongest in Aseveral seasons. Were it not for an extremely high
level of competition in the Conference and in the country during the
past few years, the newest model of Mann's perpetually well-coached
tank squad would rank with the great teams of the past.
The (ermen have one dilemma of major proportions-where to
use Burwell (Bumpy) Jones. A second-semester freshman now, Jones
was a nationwide sensation in high school and has improved consid-
erably during the past year. But he is too versatile to make things
cut and dried in the Wolverine picture. He's the squad's best back-
stroker and medley man. But in addition he's a very capable free-
styler in the distance events-All-American in the distance relay for
two years, in fact.
Ohio State looms once more as the power of the Big Ten, but its
victory margin could be cut down considerably this season.. The Wol-
verines have a wealth of talent among the freshman and sophomore
members, and could conceivably have defeated the Buckeyes in the
Big Ten if Ford Konno had not decided to enroll at Columbus.

Muncel's 12 Points
Special to The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS - Michigan has
yet to win a Big Ten basketball
game.
Coach Ozzie Cowles' aggressive
Minnesota Gophers scored at will
last night to win handily, 70-60,
and deal the Wolverines their
fouth consecutive Western Con-
ference setback.
* * *
FOLLOWING THE pattern of
its recent defeats, Michigan was
ice cold in the initial quarter, hit-
ting on only three shots from the
floor. The Gophers took advan-
tage of the losers' inability to find
the hoop, taking a quick 5-0 ad-
vantage and building it up to 24-
11 at the quarter.
Michigan found it particular-
ly hard to cope with Gopher for-
ward Dave Weiss. In his first
starting appearance of the sea-
son, the six-foot-three-inch sen-
ior paced the opening Ski-u-
mah outburst by finding the
cords for eight markers.
Cowles substituted freely for the
winners. Sixteen Minnesotans
saw action and 13 of them broke
into the scoring column. High
man was freshman guard Chuck
Mencel who hit on six shots from
the floor, most of them being one-
handers.
* * *
MICHIGAN'S INEPT offense,
which could find the mark on
only 17 of 75 field goal attempts,
was led by guard Bob Topp who
threw in nine.
With most of its starters sit-
ting on the bench, Minnesota
still outscored Coach Ernie Mc-
Coy's five by a point in the sec-
ond period to hold a 38-24 mar-
gin at halftime.
The Wolverines made their
strongest bid following the mid-
way intermission. After giant
Minnesota center Ed Kalafat hit
with a hook shot in the first nine
seconds of play, Michigan found
the range with its first two shots

as Ray Pavichevich hooked and
Don Eaddy caged a set to make
the tally read 40-28.
AT THIS POINT the Gophers
called time out, and after their
one minute respite they proceeded
to score seven points in3a row,
bringing the bulge to 47-30.
Mancel and forward Dick Means
widened the gap to 21 points, but
Michigan captain Jim Skala hit
from behind a screen and Milt
Mead canned two free throws to
whittle the score down to 57-40 at
the end of the third stanza.
A 20-point fourth quarter effort
against the Gopher scrubs made
the final score less close, but was
not enough to prevent Michigan's
eighth defeat in eleven outings.

M' Win, Denver Defeat
Tighten Up Hockey Race

The program said Michigan was
swimming against Northwestern
but the real foe was Time and the
Wolverine tankmen made a sham-
bles of both of them Saturday
night.
One national collegiate record
was broken, another was tied and
three other Intramural Pool marks
were rewritten by two freshmen
and two sophomores who swam
with heart and mind as well as
body.
RON GORA and Burwell
"Bumpy" Jones, freshmen, and
Tom Benner and Don Hill, sopho-
mores, refused to be beaten by the
hands of time or the gruelling
pace they set for themselves as
they churned through the waters
in 3:22:3, shattering the national
collegiate 400-yard free-style re-
lay record of 3:24 held by Yale
since 1942.
The individual times were
fast. Gora wheeled through the
first 100 yards in 50.6 which
was good for a new pool record.
After Jones turned in a time of
51.2. Benner equalled Gora's
50.6 and anchor man Hill out-

latter two times were eligible for
for pool records as they were not
recorded from a whistle start.
"Bumpy" Jones displayed his
versatility early in the evening
when he covered the 150-yard
medley in 1:30.8, enabling him to
share the national collegiate rec-
ord set by Joe Verdeur of LaSalle
in 1949. Jones already holds the
A.A.U. record for the 300-meter
medley.
* * *
POOL RECORDS were also set
by Gora in the 220-yard free-style
(2:06.8) and Hill in the 50-yard
free-style. The latter clipped a
tenth of a second off Dick Wein-
berg's effort of 22.8 in 1949.
Aside from the new records,
best news of the night from the
Michigan point of view came in
the diving competition where
freshmen James Walter and
CharlesBates finishedone-two.
The performances of both men

were impressive and gave indi-
cations of brighter things to
come in the diving department.
Captain John Davies and Stew
Elliott finished one-two in the
200-yard breaststroke and Wally
Jeffries and teammate Wayne
Leengran wound up the same way
in the 440-yard free style. John
Chase. Jim White and Benner
were victorious in the 300-yard
medley relay.
The Wildcats were able to win
only two events out of ten as the
Wolverines administered a 65-27
thrashing. It must be noted, how-
ever, that their star sprinter, Bud
Wallen, was sidelined with a cold
and in one event, the 220, North-
western wasn't able to enter any
swimmers.

By ED WHIPPLE
Hockey happenings over a week-
end that saw Michigan's sextet
dump Minnesota twice, 5-4 (league
win), and 6-1 (just for "fun"):
MIDWEST LEAGUE: Thanks
to a 5-0 shutout of league-leading
Denver by Colorado College Friday,
the Wolverines, who picked up two
points the same night, can tie the
Pioneers for the top spot by de-
feating Michigan State here to-
morrow night.
Colorado's upset win handed
Neil Celley's Denver crew its
second loop loss, as against five
wins. Denver has played one
more game than Michigan.
Another upset, this one Satur-
day at East Lansing, saw MSC
grab its first league triumph by
dumping North Dakota, 4-3. The
previous night the Nodaks had
sunk the Spartans, 7-2 t,o keep
even with Colorado in third place
with six points. Colorado has
played one less game than the
Nodaks.
PAT COONEY: The sophomore
left wing should be ready for ac-
tion against the Spartans tomor-
row, after missing most of the
Minnesota series.
He left Friday's game early
with a head injury incurred at
the Gopher defense. Cooney,
leading Michigan scorer going
into the Minnesota games, was
checked after getting a shot
away and landed on his head.
Telly Mascarin, Windsor fresh-.j

man, dressed in Cooney's place
Saturday. Wearing uniform nuin-
ber 14, Mascarin saw action near
the game's end.
HEATHCOTT AND CO.: Bob
Heathcott's scoring rampage (five
goals, one assist in two contests)
shot him into team scoring lead-
ership, according to latest unoffi-
cial statistics.
He has 18 points, followed by
John Matchefts and John McKen-
nell, each with 17, and Keyes,
Chin, and Cooney, at 16 apiece.
