By Ed Whip ple
THIS MAY SEEM wierd, but Michigan's NCAA hockey title was won
more than a month ago ... that's right . . . a month ago,
Vic Heyliger has made some shrewd moves during his nine years
at the helm of Michigan hockey powerhouses, but he'll have a hard
time remembering one to top the switch he pulled exactly one month
and two days ago.
It was gloomy Monday in the Coliseum dressing room. The
wily Wolverine mentor had a slumping hockey team on his hands.
Its goal production had reached a pitiful pittance. The club had
just lost three of its last four games to Minnesota. It was all but
eliminated from the NCAA playoffs.
To make matters worse, two of Heyliger's best players . . , John
McKennell and Earl Keyes ... were no longer eligible.,Something had
to be done. More from desperation than anything else, Heyliger stuck
Doug Mullen at center between wings George Chin and Pat Cooney
at practice that Monday afternoon.
It was the first time the three had been on the same line to-
gether. They looked good, so Heyliger kept them where they were, and
turned the line loose for the first time as a unit against league-leading
North Dakota.
* * *
Player Parlay Pays Off .+..
COONEY, CHIN, and' Mullen tallied seven goals between them as
Michigan swept the two games from the Nodaks, and came on to
whip Minnesota for the national championship. That line Heyliger
threw together in desperation provided the scoring punh that made
the title possible.
The way Chin, Cooney, and Mullen went on a scoring spree at
the same time is all the more amazing when you consider each was
playing mediocre hockey until Heyliger put them on the same line
together. That was 11 games ago. Since then the trio tallied more
points than they did in the first 15 games when they were not playing
as a unit. .
Chin especially deserves praise. The chubby right winger
from Lucknow, Ontario, scored four goals against Michigan State.
He tied a tournament record with two goals and four assists for the
most points in a tourney contest against Boston University.
Just the week before the playoffs the affable lad who has ten
brothers and three sisters had been knocked coldern a monkey in an
ice house by an illegal check from a Michigan Tech player. When
he left for Colorado Springs, Chin could hardly see from one eye
That didn't stop him from being the tournament's leading scorer for
the second straight year.
* * * *
Wolverines Slighted .. .
IT'S AN OVERSIGHT of some sort that Chin didn't make the All-
Tournament team. But he isn't the only Wolverine thus neglected.
Although goaler Willard Ikola allowed only four goals in two games,
he was paced on the second team ,in deference to Minnesota's Jim
Mattson, who let nine pucks past during two games.
There'll likely be another oversight this weekend in Boston when
the American College Hockey Coaches' Association selects its annual
"Coach of the Year."
The mentors will probably pick Johnny Mariucci of Minnesota,
or one of the Eastern coaches. But my nomination . . . which doesn't
count, of course ... goes to Heyliger, for the way he brought his team
through when the pressure was really on.
The stocky, black-haired Wolverine wizard has done a superb
job, even in the face of criticism from near at hand and from as -
far away as Minneapolis and Colorado. He has managed to instill;
In his players the rare quality of being able to play best when the
stakes are highest. That's what makes the difference between
a champion and a flop.
They came through in the clutch: Chin, the speedy junior who
switched to contact lenses at the season's start; Cooney, the hard-
shooting left wing who improved with each game; Mullen, the husky
red-head, who has the enviable knack of being in the right place at
the right time on the rink.
Nice Going, Fellows' .. .
THEN THERE'S Johnny Matchefts, long on talent and short in1
size; Doug Philpott, the wing who likes to appear casual, butI
actually tries harder than most; Quiet Jim Haas, a corking good de-1
fenseman who can play any position and has.4
Also there's Ron Martinson, who looked better each game re-1
covering from a broken ankle and scored three goals one play off game;
Bert Dunn, an aggressive defenseman turned forward and Telly]
Mascarin, who got the team's first goal of the season.a
Alex McClellan, the best defenseman in the United States,
even if he didn't score a goal all season until the playoffs . .
he stops as many shots as most goalies; Reggie Shave, master of,
the golf shot; and Louie Paolatto, the letterman from two years
ago who returned to make himself useful.
And there's sub goalie Bill Lucier . . . perhaps the third best
goalie in the Midwest League, but he has the misfortune to be a
sophomore on the same team with junior Ikol, who rates at the top.
Nice going, fellows.1

Wolverine Golfers Lack Experience

Ray Fisher, the guiding force
behind Michigan baseball teams
since 1921 is looking forward to
another big year in 1953.
With his entire starting lineup
back from the squad that last year
tied for the Conference champion-
ship with Illinois, Fisher figures
that he has a good chance to go
all the way this season.
* * *
LAST YEAR Michigan paced
the Western Conference in team
fielding and was fourth in the
final batting averages. The slick
fielding infield with Captain Bill
Mogk at first, lecond baseman Gil
Sabuco, shortstop Brucie Haynam
and third-sacker Don Eaddy re-
turns as a unit.
Eaddy, the lithe Grand Rap-
ids basketballer, paced Michi-
gan Conference hitting with a
.310 average while his percent-
age in all games was .337. Mogk
sticked a solid .306 and Haynam
hit .300 even in the over-all per-
Righthander Jack Corbett and,
portsiders Marv Wisniewski and
Dick Yirkoski return as the top
three hurlers of the Wolverine
mound staff. Ralph Fagg, Bob
Carpenter, Jack Ritter, and Gar-
by Tadian are all expected to see
some hurling action in supportof
the top three.
IN THE catching department
Dick Leach, a solid receiver and
a smooth-stroking hitter returns
to the post where he saw iron-
man service all last season. In the
season's batting averages, Leach
had a neat .296 mark.
Ray Pavichevich, captain-elect
of the basketball team has con-
verted from first base and will
give the catching department
some depth.
The outer gardens are so well
peopled with hopefuls that Fish-
er will have a hard time weeding
out a starting trio. Fairly well as-
certained of his left field berth is
Sophomore Paul Lepley, a 1.000
fielder and a .302 conference hit-
ter with a .343 over-all mark.
Frankie Howell, fleet grid wing-
back returns to his center field
post where last year he tied for
the Big Ten home run crown. In

right, Gerry --arrington and Bill
Billings, lettermen last year have
the inside track, while hurler Cor-
bett is expected to see some ac-
tion out in the outfield when not
drawing the pitching assignment.

field spots include gridders Dan
Clie, Bob Topp, Per Gagilis, and
catcher Dick Leach's twin brother,
Blessed with a talent-packed
outfit, Fisher has a good opportun-
ity to pull a repeat of last year's
triumph and take his fifth Big
Teri bunting in the past six years.
But all won't be smooth sailing
for the Michigan nine as there
are a lot of rugged pitching op-
ponents laying in wait for the
Such top-line hurlers as Paul
Ebert of Ohio State, Paul Giel of
Minnesota, Gerry Smith and Clyve
Follmer of Illinois, are all waiting
for their opportunity to scotch
Michigan's pennant hopes. But
if the Maize and Blue diamond
operatives have improved after
their season's experience there
shouldn't be anything to stop
Ross Accepts
Michigan's crack miler, John
Ross has accepted a bid to ap-
pear in the Banker's Invitation-
al Mile at the Chicago Relays
on March 28th.
Ross will be running in the
top field that has been gathered
for an eight furlong race this
year. In addition to the Wol-
verine junior, Fred Wilt, Len
Truex, Bill Dwyer, and War-
ren Druetzler have accepted in-
vitations to run.
Yesterday in practice Ross
sped three-quarters of a mile
in the startling time of 2:59.2.
Though no appeal will be made
for recognition as a record, his
performance bettered the exist-
ing American indoor mark of
3:02.6 set in 1940 by John Bori-
The Banker's mile will be the
first competive mile Ross has
ever run on a board track.

Wolverine golf coach Bert Katz-
enmeyer, the warm glow of his
third Big Ten links championship
in six years behind him, wants no
illusions made as to the chances of
his 1953 combine.
"We've got a very young team
which is hampered by lack of ex-
perience. I therefore can't hon-.
estly say that I expect another
championship this season," the
affable Michigan mentor warns.

AND THEN you take a look
around the barren club-house and
you see why Katzenmeyer is sing-
ing the blues in advance.
Four men from last year's
outstanding veteran sextet that
annexed the conference titleare
among the missing faces. Cap-
tain Dean Lind, Dick Evans and
John 'Fraser received their
sheepskins last June.
An unexpected loss was that of
surprising sophomore Russ John-
son, who has decidedto join the
army for two years 'and then re-
turn to Michigan for two more
years of competition.
JOHNSON CAME home second
in the individual race in the league
meet at Champaign last year, los-
ing out to Wisconsin's Doug Koep-
cke by a single stroke. He also
paced the Wolverines to their sec-
ond place finish behind perennial
champion North Texas State in
the Nationals.
Still Katzenmeyer has a bet-
ter than average nucleus around
which he'll form his title def end-

won by the Wolverines, 52-41.
IN THIS year's Big Ten meet,

and established him as a prime
contender at this month's NCAA
