EX-CAPTAIN CANHAM:
Michigan Thinclads Find
Coach's Talent Catching

By JOHN JENKS
Whenever you watch the Michi-
gan track squad in action, you
invariably wonder whether or not
greatness ever wears off.
Are those guys out there really
that good, or does Don Canham,
their coach, allow a little of his
former ability to rub off and
inspire his charges to greater
heights?
THE LAST person in the world
to admit such a possibility is Can-
ham himself, who is extremely
reluctant to talk about his
achievements, many as they are.
He prefers to discuss the poten-.
tialities of the team, both indi-
vidually and collectively.
But a glimpse at his record
only furthers the suspicion that
sometimes greatness is "catchy."
While attending high school in

THE CHAMP
$7.50 hct
Do you know what our

Oak Park, Illinois, Canham par-
ticipated in four events, the
hurdle, pole vault, high jump
and broad jump.
His indoor high jump effort of
6' 3 1/8" still stands as the state
mark and only recently was his
indoor high hurdle record broken.
After a year's wait during which
he attended a local junior col-
lege, Canham packed his bag and
headed for Ann Arbor.
IT TOOK HIM two yearsfto
regain his high school form after
the year layoff, the high point of
his sophomore year being a very
average 6'2" high jump effort.
The cream started to rise in
1940, his junior year. He was
the Big Ten and national colle-
giate champ that year in both
the indoor and outdoor high
jump events withr66 3/4" and
6'7 1/4" efforts, respectively.
In his senior term he was elec-
ted captain of the Maize and Blue
cinder contingent and again was
Big Ten indoor and outdoor
champ.
UPON GRADUATION Canham
became high school track coach at
Kankakee, Illinois, but his tenure
was short lived due to the press-
ing obligations of the Army Air
Force, which he entered early in
1942 as a private.
Discharged as a Captain 42
months later, Canham became
assistant track coach at his
Alma Mater almost immedi-
ately. When Ken Doherty, then
track coach, left for, the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania in the
spring of '48 the burden of the
post fell on Canham.
How well he shouldered that
burden is evidenced by the fact
that his lads have set 13 all-time
Michigan track records, and his
distance medley teams have estab-
lished and broken their own world
records.
Right now Canham's chief prob-
lem consists of devising ways of
getting his boys prepared for the
conference indoor meet, three
weeks away.

Skiier Wins
Second Title
Aniericans Third
In Olympic Play
OSLO-()--America's 19-year-
old ski queen, Andrea Mead Law-
rence, picked herself out of the
snow after a jarring tumble in
the Olympic Slalom yesterday and
staged an incredible comeback to
win her second gold medal of the
winter games.
The victory-believed impossi-
ble after the daring Rutland, Vt.,
housewife skidded and fell on the
first of two runs down Rodkleiva's
hazardous slope - climaxed the
greatest showing in history for a
United States ski team in the
Olympics.
* * *
THE TALL, slender New Eng-
lander became the first American
skier, man or woman, to two
Olympic titles and she esta 'ished
herself as the world's greatest in
her specialty. Andrea won the
Giant Slalom last Thursday.
With 14 events completed and
eight to go, Norway led in the
unofficial team race with 101
points while Austria was second
with 51. The United States, her
three-day scoring famine brok-
en by the ladies' flashing skis,
followed with 46y. Finland
came fourth with 41.
While championships were be-
ing decided on the ski ranges,
tempers were flaring hot in the
ice hockey tournament which pro-
duced the biggest controversy of
the 1948 games at St. Moritz.

Victors Gain
Seven Firsts
In 55m38 Win
Former Eli Splasher
Sets Backstroke Mark
By HERB NEIL
Matt Mann's Michigan swim-
mers easily downed Bainbridge
Naval Training Center's squad of
Olympic hopefuls 55-38, at the
Intramural Poot last night for
their seventh straight victory of
the season.
The visitors, who boast a host of
former national champions, were
able to garner firsts in only three
events, the 200-yard backstroke,
220-yard free-style, and the div-
ing.
* * *
ONE OF THE Bainbridge vic-
tories set a new Intramural Pool
record. Allen Stack, Olympic back-
stroke champion in 1948, glided to
victory in the 200-yard backstroke
with a 2:12.5 clocking. He broke
the old pool record, set by Bumpy
Jones against Bowling Green last
month, by 1.2 seconds.
The Wolverines built up an
early 26-10 lead by taking the
first four races-the 300-yard
medley .relay, .220-yard .free-
style, 5-yard free-style, and
150-yard individual medley.
John Davies gave the medley re-
lay tea mth eneeded spark to win
the opening event by cutting down
tke Bainbridge advantage from
six yards to one yard on his
breaststroke leg. Tom Benner then
caught and passed Bill Hogan on
the free-style to give the Wolver-
ines a two-foot margin at the fin-
ish.
* * *
THE NEXT EVENT, the 220-
yard free-style, provided the clos-
est race of the evening, as Wally
Jeffries, Charles Stephanos, and
John Ries hit the finish line prac-
tically together. Jeffries was
named the winner and Stephanos
took second, as Ries finished a
close third after leading for most
of the race.
Don Hill and Jones had little
trouble winning the 50-yard
free-style and the individual
medley, respectively; as.4hey
added to the Wolverine margin
Jones defeated a 1948 Olympic
swimmer, Wally Wolfe, by near-
ly two yards.
Roger Hadlick showed the fine
form he displayed while at Yale
in his undergraduate days in win-
ning the diving. The Sailors' other
victory came in the 440-yard free-
style, as Stephanos, former Ohio
State star, held off Wayne Leen-
gran's strong fiinsh.
Benner, Davies, and the Michi-
gan relay team of Jim White, Dick
Martin, Jones, and Hill provided
the Wolverines with their final
three victories in the 100-yard
free-style, 200-yard breaststroke,
and 400-yard free-style relay, re-
spectively.

'1' Play1fo ffs
By NEIL BERNSTEIN
Chi Phi, Chi Psi, Phi Sigma
Delta, Sigma Chi, and Kappa
ISigma all advanced into the first
place playoffs of "B" basketball
as the result of victories in I-M
fraternity play last night.
Chi Phi came from behind to
overcome an 18-10 deficit and de-
feat Theta Xi, 23-22, in a tense
thriller. Theta Xi scored early
and took command in the first
few seconds of play.
THEY SEEMED well on their
way to a first place berth, when
the aroused Chi Phi squad sud-
denly came to life and started to
close the gap. They overtook the
Thetas in the last two minutes
of play and stalled the game out
to gain the victory.
Chi Psi steam-rollered their
way to victory, with a crushing
35-9 defeat of Pi Lambda Phi.
The Pi Lams were unable to hit
the bucket all evening long.
The Chi Psi's took a command-
ing 22-4 lead late in the first
half, and coasted the rest of
the way. Jules Belkin was high
for the losers with six points,
and Pete Banzhaf led the vic-
tors with eleven.
Three other squads all gained
the playoffs via the forfeit route;
Zeta Psi forfeited to the Phi Sigs,
Psi Upsilon to Kappa Sig, and
Sigma Pi to Sigma Chi.
In other "B" games played
last night, Phi Gamma Delta
defeated Tau Kappa Epsilon,
28-11. The Phi Gams got off
to a 4-0 lead and were never
threatened. Ruedi Gingrass and
Gordon Hyde led the winners
with eight points each, while
Andy Touffer scored all eleven
points for the TKE's.
jPhi Sigma Kappa went wild in
the second half to batter Lambda
Chi Alpha, 49-27. The game was
tight all through the first half,
with Phi Sigma Kappa on top by
a close 23-18 score.

MCHL REPRIEVE:
Wolverines Sigh with Nodak Ice Victory

"?-----

The expression of a condemned
man just granted a reprieve
brightened the countenance of
Wolverine puck mentor Vic Hey-
liger yesterday as he considered
the implications of North Dakota's
5-4 upset of Denver Tuesday.
Heyliger's elation stemmed from
the realization that, by beating
weak Michigan Tech in their only
remaining league game, the Wol-
verines can do no worse than tie
Denver for second in the Midwest
Hockey League.
* * *
"SHOULD SUCH a tie mater-
ialize, season records against Am-
erican teams would become the
basis for awarding the second
western bid to the NCAA tourney,"
said Heyliger.
As chairman of the NCAA se-
lection committee, Heyliger says
he is responsible for polling
coaches Neil Celley (Denver),
Amo Bessone (Michigan .State),
Cheddy Thompson (Colorado),
and Doc Romnes (Minnesota),
in case of tie. Mentors whose
teams are involved in a deadlock
don't vote.
Inaddition to its three loop
losses, Denver has been licked
twice by Colorado, and once by
Minnesota, while Michigan has
only three league defeats against
it.
FINAL DISPOSITION of the
MCHL standings must await the
outcome of another North Dakota
game with Denver, and two with
Colorado College, plus the Michi-
gan-Michigan Tech clash. Colo-
rado can clinch 'first by beating
the Nodaks twice. Any further vic-
tories by North Dakota would
benefit Michigan's league stand-
ing.

Tech was a leading choice to
represent District 23 (Michigan)
at the 32-team NAIB (National
Association of Intercollegiate Bas-

Meanwhile Tech also received
a feeler from tly NIT (National
Invitational Tournament) offi-
cials. They wanted to know if
Tech were "willing to be con-,
sidered" for the 12-team meet
in Madison Square Garden.
Coach Don Ridler said his Blue
Devils-winners of 21 of 23 4Lmes
-wanted to play in a post-season
tournament. But he declined to
commit himself on either meet
pending developments.

remaining with American oppo-
sition-two each with Michigan
State and Michigan Tech. In the
meantime, the defending NCAA
champs take on a rugged Mc-
Gill ' University sextet Friday
and Saturday in Ann Arbor.
This series has no bearing on
the NCAA playoffs, but the dis-
closure by Heyliger that the games
will be contested under National
Hockey League rules means fast,
rough hockey is in the offing. NHL
regulations permit, among other
things, bodychecking in all zones.
