SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 1952
THE MICHIGAN DAILY
When Michigan won its third
NCAA hockey championship last
night, they completed one of the
finest five year spans in modern
Wolverine athletic history.
Under the leadership of coach
Vic Heyliger, who came to Michi-
gan in 1944, the Wolverine puck-
sters have managed to compile the
amazing total of 100 victories and
only 14 defeats in the last five
years. This represents a winning
average of 87 per cent.
The Wolverines have received
bids to all five of the NCAA cham-
pionship tournaments since they
were started in 1948.
In that year the Wolverines took
a record of 18 wins, two losses and
one tie to Colorado Springs. They
downed Boston College 6-4 in the
semi-finals and Dartmouth 8-4 in
the final round, and so emerged as
the winners in the first NCAA
The next two years Michigan
was invited again on the basis of
their superior season's records, but
fate was not to give the Wolver-
ines a repeat championship on
In the 1949 classic, when they
entered with a fine record of twen-
ty wins, two losses'and three ties,
they were eliminated by Dart-
mouth in the semi-finals, 4-2.
1950 saw the Wolverines lose to
Boston University by a 4-3 score,
after carrying a 22-3-0 record in-
to the tournament.
On both occasions even though
the Wolverines could not win,
they managed to take third place.
Colorado College, who like Mich-
igan has received a bid to all five
tournaments, was the winner in
1950. This is the only time that
the Tigers have managed to take
home the big prize.
Last year's version of the Mich-
igan hockey team brought a 20-4-1
record to Colorado Springs and
came off with the championship
by virtue of its 8-2 win over Bos-
ton University in the semi-finals,
and 7-1 victory over Brown in the
final round. In addition four
Wolverines received the distinc-
tion of being named to the All-
American hockey team.
This year Coach Heyliger was
forced to come up with new fresh-
men and sophomores, to replace
the veterans lost from last year.
The new men. along with seven
returnees developed into a first
class outfit and managed to wind
up 1wit1y a fine 20-4 record.
Whereas in previous years. sea-
son's records were used as the only
basis for determining the partici-
pants in the NCAA meet, this year
the Midwestern Collegiate Hockey
League was formed, and the top
two teams were designated to be
the west's participants in the tour-
Though Michigan did not man-
age to win this year's bid by much,
their victory last night proved
that they still are the class of
CINDERELLA TEAM WINS:
LaSalle Wallops Dayton, 75-64, in NE
NEW YORK-(IP)-LaSalle's un-
ranked and unwanted "fuzz kids,"
paced by a pair of teen-aged fresh-
men, avenged a series of snubs to-
night by smothering Dayton's tow-
ering, experienced Flyers, 75-64,
for the 15th annual National In-
vitation Basketball Championship.
A standing-room-only crowd of
18,485 packed Madison Square
Garden to see the climax to the
year's most incredible Cinderella
story. In an earlier game, St. Bon-
aventure won the third place con-
solation by smashing a Lethargic
Duquesne, the tournament's No.
1 seeded entry, 48-31.
TOM GOLA, a muscular, good-
looking son of a Philadelphia po-
liceman, and Fred Iehle, a slender
one-handed pop-in artist who, like
Kola, is just 19, provided the im-
petus for the triumph by scoring
40 points between them. Gola had
22 and Iehle 18.
Thus for the third time during
the meet LaSalle humbled one
of the teams picked "at large"
to represent the east in the
NCAA championships, beginning

Fordson High School, coached
by former Michigan swimming
star Gus Stager, grabbed first
place in the state class "A" cham-
pionship meet held last night in
the intramural pool.
The victorious Fordson crew
amassed forty-seven points to beat
defending champion Battle Creek
by ten points.

KEN GEST opened the evening's
activity with a 24.6 winning effort
in the 50 yard free style. This sent
Fordson into an early lead which
they never relinquished.
Bill Black of Fordson set a
new state record in the 200 yard.
free style when he covered the
distance in 2:02.1. This was
considerably better than the
2:05.6 with which Black quali-
fied for the finals.
Jim Kruthers gave Fordson an-
other first place when he nego-
tiated the 100 yard back stroke in
the time of 1:02.2. He then teamed
up with Tom Kwasney and Black
in a 1:21.4 winning effort in the
150 yard medley relay.

that it could be done Friday night
when he high-jumped six feet, six
and eleven-sixteenths inches to
set the only new record in the
annual Knights of Columbus

THE LANKY sophomore was
shooting baskets for the Wolver-
ine cage varsity less than two
weeks ago, and so the only track
meet be had participated in be-
fore Friday was the Big Ten meet
held last weekend at Champaign,
in which the best he could do
was place fourth.
But in Cleveland, the site of the
Knights of Columbus games, Mead
leaped one-sixteenth of an inch
higher than Dick Phillips of Brown
did last year in setting the form-
r record, and in so doing he
pulled down the only first place
garnered by the Wolverines.

OPPORTUNITIES AHEAD FOR
Opportunity can be defined in a,
number of ways. The manage-
ment of Ceco Steel gives an ex-
cellent definition of it in their
statement about Ceco's trainee

company also makes a complete
line of metal windows, industrial
steel doors, metal frame sreen,
.steel joists, steel roof deck, metal
lath and accessories and roofing
products. Cecos growth has been
steady. Today the firm employs
about 3,500 people in 14 plants
