Volleyball Victories Decisive

* * * *

By RUSS AIUTO
The seemingly-ageless faculty,
proved their worth last night by
cooling the ardor of the students,
12-8, in the annual Faculty-Stu-
dent IM Tournament.
Amid the clheers of encourage-
ment of wives and children, the
Instructors put on inspired per-
formances to edge the students in
eight sports and twenty matches.
FACULTY 29, STUDES 26
A rough and ready faculty cage
team fought off a last-minute
surge by an equally aggressive stu-
dent squad for a 29-26 victory. The
wild contest was marked by a to-
tal of 39 personal fouls.
The students jumped off to a
frst-quarter 7-4 lead as a result
of Captain Bill Putich's two scores.
Faculty captain Dave Strack
started the instructors' scoring
bid with a fielder and two free
throws, narrowing the gap as
the half ended with the stu-
dents out in front 9-7.
Jayvee coachJ. T. White start-
ed the second half with a quick
drive-in to tie up the game and,,
after -Strack's charity score, gave
the teachers a lead that they never
relinquished.
Strack contributed nine points
to the faculty cause to gainscoring
honors for the night. Bill Orwig
netted six on three long two-hand-
ers, while Smith and Captain Pu-
y tich led the students with seven
and. six points respectively.
FACULTY 7, HAYDEN 1
The faculty water polo team sub-
merged residence- hall-a champion
Hayden House, 7-1, scoring two
quick goals in the first period.
John Sharmet and Sam Graham
paced the teachers' tank team
with two goals each. Hayden's lone
tally was racked up by Herbert Sil-
verman on a power play late in
the initial stanza.
PHI DELTS 4, POII SCI 2
Earl Keim's standout perform-
ance, supported by Ron Foit's fine
play, gave Phi Delta Theta a hard-
fought victory over the faculty's
Political Science Department, four
games to two.
After taking the first two
games by the close margins of
17-15 and 15-13, the Phi Delta
dropped two exciting contests
15-17 and 11-15.
The Phi Delts came back to
take the last two tilts liandily,
15-8 and 15-13.
* . *S
ROMANCERS 4, TURKS 2
The Romance Language team,
paced by Carlos Soares and Luis
Soto-Ruiz, downed a hard fighting
Turkish Student team, 4-2, in vol-
leyball play.
The faculty squad won the in-
itial encounter 15-11, dropping
the, next two games to the re-
surging Turkish team, 15-10 and
17-15.
Romance Language came back

strong to win the remaining three
games 15-8, 15-8, and 15-11.
* * *
VOLLEYBALL SCORES
The teachers scored victories in
the other volleyball matches: Bus
Ad over Hawaiian Students, 4-3;
Psychology over Law Club, 4-0;
Education defeated Adams House,
4-1; Engine Mechanics beat the
Chinese Students, 4-0; Zoology
edged by Nu Sigma Nu, 4-3; Wil-
low Run Simulators dropped the
Forestry Club, 4-0; and the Phys
Ed faculty slipped by the Phys
Ed majors, 4-3.
The students picked up volley-
ball wins with the following vic-
tories: Zeta Beta Tau over Mu-
seum, 4-3; Pi Lambda Phi stopped

By DICK LEWIS
Can Illinois roll past Purdue,
Northwestern and Wisconsin to its
second successive Big Ten basket-
ball crown?
How many more records will
Iowa center Chuck Darling add
to the three he has already shat-
tered?
THESE ARE the big questions
on the lips of Midwestern cage
fans who are watching one of the
tightest races in Western Confer-
ence history.
And in their minds, the Fight-
ing Illini are not yet a shoo-in
to conference title laurels.
Coach Harry Combes' hoopsters
must face three clubs that are
mired deep in the second division
and have no solace other than
upsetting the leaders.
* * *
TWO OF THE remaining Illi-
ois contests are on the road.
Tomorrow night the Illini en-
counter a high-scoring Purdue
five at Lafayette.
Illinois has won only one
game at Purdue since 1937, and
that was last season when the
Illini staged one of their best
scoring efforts of the year to
win, 85-76.
Combes will stick with his "six-
man" lineup which has recorded
17 victories in 19 outings, and has
amassed a scoring average of'71.6,
while limiting opponents to a 60.1
output.
* * *
THIS WELL-BALANCED sextet
is composed of center John Kerr
(266 points), forward Irv Bem-
oras (228 points), guard Rod
Fletcher (208 points), center Bob
Peterson (206 points), guard Jim

Bredar (183 points), and forward
Clive Follmer (159 points).
The fast-breaking Boilermak-
er attack has netted 805 mark-
ers in 12 league starts, and is
featured by center Carl Mc-
Nulty, the number three scorer
in the circult. McNulty has tal-
lied 245 times for a better-than-
20-point average.
Meanwhile, Iowa's flickering
title chances have been temporar-
ily shoved aside in favor of Darl-
ing's ability to regularly smash
conference standards.
* * *
WITH TWO BIG TEN games
remaining, the 6-8 pivot operator
from Dearborn has already
meshed 307markers in league play
for a remarkable 25.6 average.
In doing so, the Phi Beta
Kappa senior bettered the 14-
game Western Conference mark
of 277 established by Northwes-
tern's Ray Ragelis last season
and surpassed the 12-game total
of 272 set by Hawkeye Murray
Weir in 1948.
Darling's 113 field goals cracked
the 12-game total of 111 by Andy
Phillip of Illinois in 1943 and the
14-game aggregate of 97 set by
McNulty in 1951.
* * *
THE LANKY Hawkeye's three-
year record of 659 scores snapped
the standa;d of 628 turned in by
Wisconsin's Don Rehfeldt in 1948-
50. Darling needs only 17 points
to break the four-year total .of
675 points which Rehfeldt estab-
lished with the inclusion of his
freshman competition.
Almost certain to fall to Darl-
ing is the record average per
game of 22.67 points by Weir in

The Hawkeyes have chalked up
10 winsain 12 league games this
season and they face Northwes-
tern (4-8) at Evanston tomorrow
night.'
Other action finds Minnesota
(10-3) at Indiana (7-5), Wiscon-
sin (3-8) at Ohio State (5-8), and
Michigan (3-9) at Michigan.State

THESE ARE the first impres-
sions the casual observer receives
upon meeting huge Fritz Nilsson,
the Svano, Sweden, import and
the latest sensation on the Wol-
verine cinder contingent.
The 27-year-old Nilsson is
the image of the ideal Swede.

towers 6'6" 'and packs 230
pounds over his lean, hard
frame.

Ponville, former Michigan great,
Nilsson hopes to put his tremend-
ous physical powers into record-
breaking shot and discus efforts.
HIS RESULTS so far in the
shot put show a steady improve-
ment with each performance. In
the Michigan State meet last week
big Fritz cut loose with a 54'5 %"
toss, by far his best effort, which

rates him big man in the confer-
ence in that event.
After graduating from the ,
Swedish equivalent of high
school in 1944, Nilsson entered
the Swedish Air Force to serve
his required one year of mii-
tary duty.
In 1946 he joined an athletic
club and began to throw the shot
and discuss steadily. By Olym-
pic year, 1948, Nilsson was heav-
ing the shot better than 51 feet
with consistency, good enough to
represent Sweden in the interna-
tional games.

THE FOLLOWING year Nilsson

left his native land to take up
residence in the United States.4
After spending a year working int
Detroit and Cleveland, he enrolled
at Michigan in the fall of '50.t
A sophomore majoring in phy-
sical education, big Fritz finds
the University "a pretty tough
school." Besides track hopes,
Nilsson has two chief aspira-
tions: to graduate in '54 and to
become a citizen in '55.
His current fear is that heT
might let down the Swedish peo-
ple when he represents them in,
this year's Olympics, for they are!
expecting big things from their
blond giant.

coach Elmer Swanson at 4:00
p.m. at Yost Field House.
-Don Canham
mick, third highest player, are in
their first season of college hockey.
Coach Bessone will probably
start an all-frosh first line,
made up of John Mayes, team's
leading scorer, at center, with
Weldon Olson and Gordon King
in the forward slots.
Dick Lord and Dick Northey will
be in at defense, backed up by
senior goalie Del Reid.I
The Wolverine squad appears to
be in good shape for the contests
after their two game sweep of
McGill 'University last weekend.
Coach Heyliger will probably start
John McKennell, Early Keyes, and
Paul Pelow on the forward line,
Jim Haas and Reg Shave at de-
fense, and Willard Ikola in the
nets.

Larry Nelson and Jack Gallon,
the two leading Wolverine wrest-
lers in the lower weights will not
compete against Ohio State to-
morrow.
Nelson, conference champion at
123 pounds and Gallon, stand-out
performer at 137 pounds, both
came down with the flu yesterday
and will not make the trip to
Columbus.
THE MAIN CONCERN of Coach
Cliff Keen is whether or not the
pair will recover sufficiently to
appear here in the conference
championship meet next Friday
and Saturday. Both men had been
counted on for important points
in this big meet.
The loss of Gallon and Nelson
is expected to seriously hamper
the Wolverine's performance
against the rugged Buckeyes,
who last year won thq Confer-
ence crown and have remained
practically intact. A heavy bur-
den will be carried by two young

freshman grapplers, Joe Atkins
and Andy Kaul.
Kaul will compete in Gallon's
spot and Atkins will appear at the
lower weight. Both men have seen
limited action this season when
both Nelson and Gallonowere kept
out by lame knees.
Sad to say for their worrying
mentor Coach Keen, injuries come
in pairs for his mighty mites and
most dependable: point-getter. If
they don't get back in shape, it
will most likely ruin Michigan's
opportunity for its first Western
Conference Championship in the

NEW YORKa - - Western
Kentucky, LaSalle, Louisville and
New York University accepted bids
yesterday to the National Invita-
tion Basketball Tournament be-
ginning March 8, leaving only one
school to be selected in the 12-,
team event.
LaSalle and N.Y.U. were nam-
ed tonight, after an earlier an-
nouncement that the two Ken-
tucky clubs had accepted offers
to play in the Madison Square
Garden event.
It was expected that one of the
following teams (records in brack-
ets) would be chosen by tomorrow
for the final open spot:
DePaul (18-7), Loyola of Chi-

I1

cago (17-7), St. Joseph's of Phil-
adelphia (16-5), Texas Christian
(20-3), Villanova (17-6) and
Miami, Ohio (17-5).
Seven teams already had ac-
cepted invitations prior to yester-!
day. They included three cage
outfits ranked among the top 10
in the nation in the last AP week-
ly poll-Duquesne, No. 4, St. Louis,
No. 5, and St. John's of Brooklyn,
No. 9. Also invited were Dayton,
No. 11; St. Bonaventure, Nd. 12;
Seton Hall, No. 14, and Holy Cross,

pensation to enter the fold. The
N. I. T. had announced previously
that four-year men would be bar-
red, since the tourney would be
played under NCAA rules.
Louisville has three four-year
players.
Western Kentucky is an old tim-
er around the N.I.T., having tried
five times without success to lift
the crown, The Hilltopperswith
a 24-4 season mark, were rated
No. 18 in the last A? poll.
