Score for Red Wings
DETROIT - (A) -The Detroit
Red Wings outfought and out-
scored the Toronto Maple Leafs
3-0 last night in a bruising Stan-
ley Cup playoff game.
Twenty-nine penalties, includ-
ing four majors and four miscon-
ducts, were called as the old rivals
renewed their time-honored bitter
battles for league honors. It was
the first shutout scored by either
team in their 15 games to date,
including 14 in the regular season.

Davies To End Collegiate
Swim Career at NCAA

By RICK LEWIS
(First in a series)
It looks like Purdue will be the
biggest hurdle for Michigan's golf-
ers in their bid to bring the con-
ference crown back to Ann Arbor
for the twelfth time in 34 years.
Even with the loss of two low-
scoring seniors, Wolverine mentor
Bert Katzenmeyer calls the Boiler-
makers the team to beat in the
Western Conference Champion-
ships late in May at Champaign.
AND KATZENMEYER is mak-
ing sure that his golfers get a
good look at the Lafayette six-
some before the Big Ten show-
down. The Maize and Blue is
scheduled to face Purdue first in
a triangular test at Columbus, and

Johnny Davies, the most recent
in a long line of great Michigan
natators, will wind up his col-
legiate swimming career at the
N.C.A.A. meet at Princeton tomor-
row, Friday and Saturday.
The untiring Australian-born
breast stroker now holds the Big
Ten 100 and 200-yard champion-
ships and the A.A.U. 100 and 200-
meter crowns. He boasts the

then in a four-school contest on
the Michigan links.
In 1950, Purdue captured its
first team championship and
also walked off with individual
honors as senior Fred Wampler
took the medalist laurels for the
third year in a row.
Under the tutelage of first-year
coach Sam Voinoff, the Boiler-
makers finished second behind
Ohio State last season, only
twelve strokes off the Buckeyes'
1528 total.
* * , *,
RIVETER Gene Coulter fired a
four-over-par 290 to wrap up the
individual title at Northwestern
in 1951, and teammate Dave Laf-
hin came home seventh with a 301

total. But both these men grad-
uated last year.
Four holdover major letter-
men from last year's steady
shooting six that wound up
fifth in the national collegiate
title meet provide the nucleus
for the 1952 Purdue entry.
Heading the veteran contingent
is a trio of sharpshooting seniors
including Jack Hesler of Craw-
fordsville, Ind., Dick Wibel of
Birmingham, and Norm Dunlap
of Terre Haute. The letterman
group is completed by junior
Chuck Houff, also of Birmingham.
All four were closely packed
in the qualifying round of the na-
tional collegiate meet last summer
with Hesler carding a 153, Houff,
155, Wibel, 156 and Dunlap, 158.

(the Rocket) Richard punched
home two goals last night to
spark the Montreal Canadiens
to a 5-1 triumph over the Bos-
ton Bruins in the opening game
of their best of seven National
Hockey League Stanley Cup
playoff series.

,

14,316 fans saw the Wings, league
champions, take on the defending
Stanley Cup holders.
Hard-hitting Len (Red) Kel-
ly put Detroit ahead 1-0 in the
opening period as he maneuver-
ed through the Leafs' defense
and beat goalie Al Collins clean-
ly at 13:35. After a scoreless sec-
ond period, the Wings made it
2-0 at 2:19 of the final period
when Sid Abel poked home the
rebound of Gordie Howe's long
shot.
John Wilson added the clincher
at 14:21 on a breakaway play that
naught Rollins out of position.

Detroit netminder Terry Saw-
chuk, although apparently suf-
fering from jitters in the early
minutes, racked up 26 saves in
grabbing his second shutout in two
seasons of National Hockey League
playoff competition.

JOHN DAVIES
. . splashing Aussie
* * *
American 200-meter long course
record (2:35.7) and the Big 'Ten
200-yard record (2:15.3) which he
set in Lansing two weeks ago in
defense of his title.
Saturday night Davies paced a
six man Michigan relay crew that
broke the American 800, 1 000 and
1200 yard records. He wheeled
thfough his 200 yard stretch in
2:20.6.
A HARD and uncomplaining
worker, Davies has won the ac-
claim of his teammates, coaches
and friends not only as an athlete,
but as a modest and sincere per-
son.
His teammates showed their
high regard for him by electing
him co-captain of this year's

team along with another out-
standing breast stroker, Stew
Elliott.
"Johnny is quite a competitor,"
said Coach Matt Mann. "He is
one of the few boys who swims
with his head as well as his body.
He is the ideal boy to work with."
DAVIES' RECORD in his native
Australia is impressive. He once
held every breast stroke record
from 110-yards to 550-yards. To
the best of his knowledge only the
220 mark has been broken since
he left for the 1948 Olympics at
the age of 18.
After these Olympic games in
London, in which he placed
fourth in the 200-meter event,
Davies decided to tour the Unit-
ed States. At the request of a
friend who corresponded with
Matt Mann, the big Australian
included Michigan in his itin-
erary. It turned out to be a
pretty important stop because
he liked what he saw and de-
cided to stay.
According to Mann, however,
Davies is receiving no financial
subsistence from the University.
"He is not on a scholarship," em-
phasizes Mann. "He is putting
himself through school and is ask-
ing no one for help. Every semes-
ter he pays his $200 just like any
other student."
DAVIES HAS the ability to keep
his pace no matter what the rest
of the field is doing. Several times
this year these tacticsof not let-
ting the opposition influence his
swimming have given Michigan
rooters a mild case of the jitters.
However, Coach Mann consid-
ers this one of his greatest as-
sets. "Johnny is a good pacer,"
Mann explained. "He always
knows where he stands. And
he can always sprint. When the
other guy gets tired - that's
where Johnny's dangerous."
Davies is a political science ma-
jor. After the coming summer's
Olympic games at Helsinki-he'll
represent Australia, of course-he
will return to Michigan for one
final semester.

Coach Bill Murphy is busy solv-
ing a puzzle that will materialize
into Michigan's 1952 tennis team.
The problem is not lack of tal-
ent; rather, with five veterans
from last year's Conference run-
nerup outfit on hand, plus some
promising freshmen and sopho-
mores, Murphy's task is to fit the
pieces together.

ROUND ROBIN tourney play
indoors the past few weekends was
expected to settle most positions,
but Murphy confessed yesterday
Umpires are needed for In-
tramural softball. Those inter-
ested phone the I-M Building--
8109. A meeting will be held
there tomorrow at 4:30.
-Bill L'Heureux
he is more uncertain than ever
who will be playing where when
the season opens April 26 against
Indiana.
More intrasquad matches Sun-
day will determine the six play-
ers to make a Southern tour
spring vacation that 'includes
meets with Florida State at
Tallahassee and Rollins College,
at Winter Park.
Murphy doesn't hesitate to name
Steve Bromberg, Gene Barrack,
Bob Curhan, Mike Schwartz, Al
Mann, and Jay Webb as the top
six at the moment.
BUT BROMBERG and Barrack,
plus vetedan Jack Smart, current-
ly ranked seventh, do not intend
to travel the Dixie circuit. In place
of this trio, Murphy indicated a
couple of Jims, Holtz and Steph-

ens, will get the nod for the va-
cation trip.
It's dog eat dog in the scram-
ble for positions, as indicated by
the results of last week's prac-
tice matches.
Bromberg, number two last year
and generally conceded top spot
this season, has been beaten by
Barrack 10-8, 6-2, and by Schwartz
6-3, 2-6, 6-2.
Barrack then lost to Webb, 3-6,
6-4, 6-4. Holtz has won two
matches, while losing to Mann, a
freshman.
Bromberg, now in his first year
of Law School, was not certain if
he would have time to compete on
the courts this spring, but the
Wolverine Co-captain has been
working out regularly, and he in-
tends to be in action when the
campaign opens.

REASONS-Red Kelly (right) and Terry Sawchuk were two good
reasons for Detroit's opening win over the Maple Leafs last night
in the semifinals of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Kelly scored the
first of the Wing's three goals while goalie Sawchuk was shutting
out Toronto.
