Michigan's record - shattering
swimmers will be out to break
some more national and pool
marks in tonight's meeting with
Bowling Green at 8 p.m. in the
Intramural Pool.
After the non-Conference dual
meet tonight the Wolverines will
meet three Big Ten opponents be-
fore the second semester begins.
Purdue will appear in Ann Arbor
for' an afternoon meet on Satur-
day, Feb. 2, at 3 p.m., and then the
Michigan natators will engage
Wiscnsin and Minnesota in a tri-
angular meet at Minneapolis on
February 9.
ALTHOUGH Bowling Green is
the Central Collegiate Conference
champion, the visitors will prob-
ably not provide the Wolverines
with as much competition as will
the stopwatch.
In a special free-style relay,
which will not count in the scor-
ing of the meet, the Wolverines
Mlini .Defense
Tops Big Ten
CHICAGO-()-Point - making
isn't the most important thing in
the Big Ten basketball race,
fourth-week league statistics in-
dicated today.
The unbeaten co-leaders of the
championship race, Iowa and Illi-
nois, were ranked third and sixth
offensively with 67.8 and 62.5 av-
erage points per game in four
contests.
* * *
THE ILLINI, however, moved in
front as the top defensive team,
yielding a 521Vs-point average.
Sixth-place Purdue leads on
the attack with a three-game
average of 77, followed by
fourth-spot Ohio State with al-
most 70.
Michigan State which shares
sixth with Purdue and Wisconsin
leads in accuracy from the field
with a .365 shooting average,
while Purdue is sharpest from the
free throw line with .718.
Suddenly cooled-off Indiana can
find an answer to its slump in a
meager .270 percentage on 328
field goals attempted. The Hoos-
iers have dropped three straight
league games after nestling among
the nation's undefeated teams.

will attempt to break the na-
tional collegiate marks in the
200, 250, and 300-yard free style
relays, all of which are held by
Yale. Don Hill, Ron Gora, Tom
Benner, Jim McKevitt, Jim Ford,t
and Dick Martin, each swimmingt
50 yards, will make up the team.S
Bowling Green has gained a spliti
in its first two dual meets this,
year, losing to Michigan State 66-t
27, and trouncing Albion, 62-22.1
S, *
TONIGHT'S contest will mark
the second meeting between the,
two schools in the water. Michigan
easily downed the Falcons, 48-32,
in the first meet last year at Bowl-i
ing Green.1
In registering last season's win
the Wolverines set five new pool
records at Bowling Green. John
Davies established a new 200-
yard breaststroke mark, Wally
Jeffries bettered the 220-yard
free -style record, Luis Childs
clipped the 440-yard free-style
mark, Dick Howell broke the
200-yard backstroke record, and
the medley team recorded a new
300-yard medley relay record.
The Falcons' strong point
against last year was in the sprints,
where they set a new pool record
in the Michigan meet in the 440-
yard free-style relay and beat the
Wolverines in both the 50- and
100-yard free-style races.
* * *
AGAIN this year the visitors are
strongest in the free-style depart-
ment, with three-fourths of the
record-breaking relay team back
from last year. Ned Clark, Don
Kepler, and Harry Shearer, who
teamed up with Chuck Woodflll to
set the 3:36.3 record, will swim in
the free-style events tonight.
In addition to the veterans
Bowling Green claims two fresh-
men free-stylers, Fred Gerbing
and Clarence Murray, who are
faster than the experienced men.
Gerbing is a former Detroit Den-
by star and captain.
All will have to be in particu-
larly fast form, however, to defeat
the Wolverine free-stylers, who
swam a 3:22.3 400-yard free-style
relay race in the Northwestern
meet.
Bowling Green breaststrokers,
John Bruce, fastest breaststroker
the Falcons have ever had, and
Bob Sturdevant, give the visitors
strength in that department, but
are no match for Michigan's na-
tional champions, Davies and Stew

Jack Gallon"
Twists Knee
Four Matches Loom
For M' Wrestlers
Injury, that naughty demon of
the sports world, has once more
caught up with the Michigan
wrestlers.
Coach Cliff Keen's worries, as
if they weren't complete enough
suddenly became more intense yes-
terday, when Jack Gallon, 137
pound junior twisted a knee. The
injury is expected to keep Gallon
out of at least one meet and pos-
sibly more.
But with Gallon's injury also
came at least one bright spot. That
is the expected return of Larry
Nelson, last year's Big Ten cham-
pion. Nelson will beready to go
in tomorrow's meet at Toledo.
.*
THE ROCKETS will be the first
of four teams that the Wolverines
will face over the forthcoming
exam time layover.
It is reported that this year's
Toledo meet will definitely not
be a repeat performance of the
previous two years. The Rockets
are supposed to be loaded with
much top flight talent, including
four National Y.M.C.A. cham-
pions.
Heading these national cham-
pions is Harry Lanzi, magnificent
Brooklyn heavyweight who will
captain Toledo in their effort to
avenge last year's 22-8 Michigan
romp.
FEBRUARY 2nd the Wolverines
will appear in Ann Arbor for the
first time this season. At 8 that
evening they will oppose a Purdue
team which always ranks among
the best in the Big Ten.
This year should be no excep-
tion. For, although Boilermaker
mentor Claude Reeck is in the pro-
cess of rebuilding, several out-
standing men are back this year
from last year's fine team.
Captain Jack Moreno at 147
pounds and Harold Parsons, a
returning letterman at 123
pounds, are expected to lead the
Boilermakers.
February 8 will find the Wolver-
ines at Champaign to grapple a
tough Illini team.
- M
ILLINOIS came in fourth last
year in the Big Ten meet and this
year even though they have lost
three outstanding lettermen, they
are expected to do at least as well.
Captain Martin Schwartz,
number two man in the Big Ten
last year at 177 pounds, will
probably be the Illini's big man.
Michigan grappling fans will
probably have their first chance to
see the locals in action when they
face Iowa here on Saturday, Feb-
ruary 9, at 8 p.m. in Yost Field
House.
The Hawkeyes have a veteran
team with six lettermen returning
fromlast year. Capt. Phil Duggan
at 130 pounds and Dick Higgenbot-
tom at 157 pounds are the Iowa
standouts.
The Wolverines stand to lineup
as follows in most of these meets:
* * *
123 pounds-Larry Nelson
130 pounds-Snippy Nalan
137 pounds-Andy Kaul (Gallon
in later meets)
147 pounds-Joe Scandura
157 pounds-Dave Space
167 pounds-Bud Holcombe
177 pounds-Dick O'Shaughnessy
Heavyweight-Moose Dunne

Gym Squad
opposes NU
Tonmorrow
Michigan's gymnastics team will
try to notch its second victory to-
morrow at the expense of North-
western at Yost Fieldhouse and
the IM Building.
Competition on the high bars
and the flying rings will take place
in the IM Buildingsat 7 p.m. while
the rest of the events will be held
in the Fieldhouse after the basket-
ball game with Michigan State
that starts at 8 p.m.
THE WILDCATS will be out to
avenge a 56-40 drubbing the Wol-
verines handed them last year. De-
spite this incentive Michigan will
rule as the favorites on the basis
of their lopsided win over Indiana
and because of Northwestern's un-
impressive showing in losing to
Wisconsin 64-31 last week.
Leading the Wildcat attack
will be Tom Peacock, an all
around man who performs on
the sidehorse, high bars, parallel
bars and flying rings. Peacock
and Captain Connie Ettl of
Michigan are expected to vie
for high point honors.
Duncan Erley, Michigan's out
standing tumbler, will be provides
with some of his most serious com
petition of the season in the per
son of Joe Zima.
NORTHWESTERN'S Tom Mill
is expected to give Remo Boila anc
Don Hurst of Michigan seriou
competition on the trampoline.
Michigan's fine crop of soph-
omores and freshmen are again
counted on to provide the team
depth and necessary second,
third and fourth place points.
Heading this group is freshma
Harry Luchs, who has been in th
country only about a year after
coming over from Germany. Luch
was high scorer in the Indian
meet with fifteen points on tw
firsts and a third. Following hin
is another freshman, Frank Adam
who took two seconds against In,
diana to place third in the scor
ing.
Coach Newt Loken's squad wi
engage in two other meets betwee:
semesters. At one, the America
Turners meet in Detroit, the Wo]
verines will get a line on Michiga
State, one of the chief threats fc
the Big Ten title. The other mee
is an away affair with Ohio Stat
on February 2.

Invitational
Meets Open
Track Slate
Michigan's track team will end
its long period of dormancy over
the holidays, beginning with the
Philadelphia Enquirer's invitation-
al meet tonight and ending with
the Michigan AAU February 9.
The two mile relay team of Del
Hyde, Aaron Gordon, John Ross
and Bill Hickman will bear the
Maize and Blue colors in the Phila-
delphia meet. Hyde and Gordon
ran in the event last year, while
Ross and Hickman are newcomers
to this team.
0 0 9
THE FOLLOWING night Jack
Carroll and George Lynch will ap-
pear in the Knights of Columbus
meet in Boston. Carroll, a sopho-
more from Toronto, will do the 600,
and Lynch, a transfer student from
Illinois, will run the two mile.
One week from tonight the
Milwaukee Journal will hold
open house for midwestern cin-
der performers, but Coach Don
Canham is undecided as to who
will represent Michigan.
"It is probable that the two mile
relay will make the trip along with
hurdler Van Bruner," speculated
assistant coach Elmer Swanson."
o * *
EVERYBODY will have a chance
to get into the act February 4 when
Western Michigan and Ypsi Nor-
mal drop in for the season's first
triangular meet. Although neither
squad is particularly powerful, each
has several topnotch runners.
Michigan Normal's Ed Aylmar
finished fifth in the national
AAU cross country. He will run
the two mile here against the
l Wolverine's fabulous Don Mc-
Ewen. Stan McConnor of Nor-
mal will also provide tough com-
petition in the quarter mile.
Western's top representatives are
Al Renick, a hurdler, and Russ
Gabier, a miler.
The meet should prove to be
merely a tune-up for the AAU
festivities five days later.

Rams DrawI
Wmade First
In Pro Draft
NEW YORK-(I')-The top prize
of the 1951 college football crop-
Vanderbilt's Bill Wade-fell to the
Champion Los Angeles Rams yes-
terday in the National League
draft.
The Rams won the coveted "bo-
nus" pick in a blind draw with six
other clubs and immediately put
the finger on the six-foot-two,
202-pound T - quarterback from
Nashville, Tenn., rated by the pros
as the outstanding prospect for
the money game.
* * *
AFTER harnessing Wade, the
Rams proceeded to pick up a pair
of all-American ends-Bob Carey
of Michigan State and Dewey Mc-
Connell of Wyoming in the regu-
lar draft, a drawn-out, all-day af-
fair.
Vic Janowicz, Ohio State half-
back whowas the outstanding col-
lege player of the 1950 season, was
not picked until the seventh round
and then he went to the Washing-
ton Redskins.
Green Bay grabbed next and
took Vito (Babe) Parilli, Ken-
tucky's passing ace who threw to
a record 50 touchdowns during
his career.
The Pittsburgh Steelers plucked
Ed (Mighty Mo) Modzelewski, 210-
pound Maryland fullback.

Pucksters Meet Minnesota

Tied with Denver for the Mid-"
west College Hockey League lead
by virtue of Wednesday's 7-1 de-
feat of Michigan State, Michigan's
sextet can grab sole possession of
,he loop's top spot tonight by beat-
ing Minnesota in the first contest
of a weekend series at Minneapo-
lis.
Tonight the Wolverines will be
skating to add two points to the
ten they already have on five wins
and two losses. Tomorrow's con-
test is a non-league affair. Den-
ver (aosl 5-2) is idle in conference
action until February 1.
, 0 ,
LAST WEEKEND here, Coach
Vic Heyliger's charges took the
measure of the Gophers twice, 5-4
(league win), with 6-1. Minne-
sota's youthful squad has dropped,
four conference games, winning
none to date. On the season, the
Gophers have won five and lost
six.
After the Minnesota series,
Heyliger's outfit will have a two
weeks layoff, before returning
to action Friday and Saturday,
February 8 and 9, at Michigan
Tech. The initial tilt at Hough-
ton is a two-point MCHL battle.
The Huskies of Al Renfrew, for-
mer Michigan star, have played
once in the league, losing, 8-4, to
North Dakota. However, between
now and the encounter with the
Wolverines the Techmen play six
conference contests, two each with
Colorado and Denver in the Rocky
Mountain state, and singles with
North Dakota and MSC.
" 9 s
HARD HIT by the departure of

team, Renfrew's main asset Is Ray
Puro, a junior who topped the club;
in goals last season. Puro bagged
five goals as Tech edged St. Tho-
mas of Minnesota, 6-5, in overtime
last weekend.
As the Wolverine. wftrainee
for Minneapolis yesterday after-
noon, without any hangovers
from the MSC frasea, a glance
at the scoring statistics revealed
Bob Heathcott, with eight goals
and 18 assists, is still leading
the team in scoring.
Halfway through the season
(Michigan has wonQinefl of 12
starts), Heatheott's 21 points top
Johnny McKennell by two. Mc-
Kennell, boasting 19 points, scored
two goals against the Spartans.
Behind McKennell comes Pat Coo-
ney with 18.
The goal scoring lead still be-
longs to Cooney, with eleven.
Matchefts is second, with ten.
