Cagers Far Ahead of Last Year's Pace

Michigan's hopes in the fast ar-
riving 1952-53 swimming season
will be pinned mainly on the in-
dividual medley, freestyle and free-
style relay events.
In the other events, such as the
backstroke, breaststroke, medley
relay and diving, Michigan boasts
plenty of depth, but no outstand-
ing swimmers.
BURWELL "BUMPY" Jones will
pace the field once again in the
individual medley. Jones, an Olym-
pic veteran, has swept nearly all
honors in the event, taking titles
in the Big Ten, National Collegiate
meet, and both the National AAU
indoor and outdoor meets. The De-
troit sophomore has set records in
all of them except the Big Ten.
Jones will be backed up by junior
Tom Benner of York, Pa.
The freestyle events, both the
distance and sprints, will see
Michigan again pacing the field.
In the sprints, the Maize and
Blue will have Don Hill, one of
the top sprinters in the coun-
try, and Tom Benner, who usual-
ly finishes right behind Hill.
Other good sprinters include
John Ries, Pete Dow, and Don
The long distance freestyle
events will have Jones swimming
again, along with sophomore Ron
Gora, another Olympic tankman.
Gora did not see action last sea-
son, but as a high schooler at Chi-
cago's Lane Tech, was undefeated.
Wally Jeffries, the captain of this
year's squad, will also be in the
distance freestyle, along with sen-
ior Wayne Leengrin.
s s
collegiate champion freestyle re-
lay team of last season will be
back intact. The team, which
roared to an NCAA meet record of
:25.6, is composed of Jeffries,
Jones, Benner, and Hill. Of course,
Michigan coach Matt Mann will
probably juggle the personnel of
the relay teams considerably dur-
ing the season.
The medley relay team is still
in a nebulous form, with almost
every swimmer on the squad
getting a shot at it.
In the breaststroke, a team can-
not lose the world's number one
breaststroker and not feel the loss.
This Is the case with Michigan
having lost John Davies, Olympic
national and AAU breaststroke
champ. They also lost Big Ten
champ breaststroker Stuart El-
liot, co-captain of last years squad
with Davies.

verine threat. He will be backed
up by sophomore Don Potter,
and Medical school freshman
Basil Considine.
Diving is also rather weak, but
the coaches expect some improve-
ment over last season. Sophomore
Jim Walters, former Illinois State
high school champion from New
Trier, will carry the brunt of
Michigan's diving chores. Bud
Hurd, a sophomore, and Junior
Andy White, wall also dive for the
Maize and Blue.

IT IS unfortunate for Michi-
gan that freshmen are barred from
competition this season, for there
are some of the very fine ones on
the way up. The Wardrup brothers

Two other top freshmen are the;
champion high school backstrok-;
er of America, Jim Kruthers, and
Don Sharpe, a breaststroker from
Australia who finished third in
the British Empire games.
Other freshmen with promising
records include Cris Keller, the
high school diving champ of Penn-
sylvania, Jim McCullough, the
high school driving king from
Iowa, Bob Knox, who holds the
national interscholastic record in
the 100-yard free style and Ray

The team is made up of the best

Club of 29 members. Therefore the
team may be different students for
each match. Although the team
holds a postal match every week,
when they mail their scores to
other schools, they travel to other
schools five times a year.

John McKennell appears to be
well on his way to a fine come-
back if last Saturday's hockey
game is any indication.
McKennell, Michigan's left wing
on the first line, looked like the
McKennell of two years ago as
he darted inside the St. Lawrence
defense for two Wolverine goals
in the 6-1 lacing of the Larries.
* *' *
HIS FINE performance raised
coach Vic Heyliger's hopes con-
siderably since the 22 year old sen-
ior's play will have an important
bearing on the Wolverines' suc-
cess in defending their NCAA
Two years ago as a sophomore,
McKenneil broke Into the Mich-
igan lineup with a bang, bag-
ging 31 goals and assisting on
21 others for an aggregate of 52
points, enough to place him third
among the Wolverine scorers.
This encouraging first season
promised a bright future for the
Toronto red-head, but for some
reason or other, things didn't
click for McKennell last year and
he was unable to even halve his
goal total of the previous season.
HE NETTED only 15 goals, and
combined with 20 assists, he had
a total of 35 points for the year,
a far cry from the 52 collected in
his initial season.
According to Heyliger, Mc-
Kennell lacked the aggressive-
ness that could have made him
a great player last year. He was
fancy around the net and a top
flight stick handler, but he
seemed to have little spark ex-
cept in occasional spurts.
However, the 1951-1952 season
has gone by the boards. Last Sat-
urday, the 150 pound left wing
brought back memories of his
sophomore year, especially with
his solo dash that flashed the light
on the Wolverines' sixth and final
PICKING UP A loose puck in
his own zone, he brought the
crowd to its feet as he faked past
three St. Lawrence defenders be-
fore finally discarding the disc

behind the helpless Larrie goalie,
Bill Sloan.
His other goal came early in
the second period when he turn-
ed a three way pass play into
Michigan's second marker.
This type of play indicates a
great season ahead for the clever
left winger and if it materializes,
Michigan's already tough first line
could become one of the highest
scoring units in collegiate hockey.
* * * *
CAPTAIN John Matchefts and
right wing Earl Keyes are the
other members of the line.
McKennell first started playing
hockey in Toronto's public school
leagues and gradually progressed
in the Canadian amateur hockey
ranks, culminating his pre-college
career with the Toronto Marlboros
of the tough Ontario Hockey

Pertinent facts in the wake. of
Michigan's record-breaking 85-78
defeat of Pittsburgh:
Coach Bill Perigo's fast-break-
ing Wolverines have racked up
165 points in their initial two con-
tests, surpassing last year's two-
game total by a full 64 tallies.
OVER THE same two-game
span, the Maize and Blue defense
has allotted 150 scores (a 75-per-
game average), 27 more than at
the similar time during the 1951-
52 campaign.
Things were looking pretty
dim a year ago as the Wolver-
ines dropped their first two en-
counters. Central Michigan hu-
miliated the locals, 60-43, and
Butler coasted to a 63-53 win.
What's more, Coach Ernie Mc-
Coy's guards weren't scoring. Five
of them saw action against But-
ler, and they came out with a net
total of only four points.
THIS YEAR there has been a
complete reversal. Michigan hop-
ped on Marquette, 80-72, to sur-
pass last year's highest point pro-
duction by nine counters, and then
went on to turn back Pittsburgh,
85-78, and set a school scoring
record in the process.
The victory over Pittsburgh
was sparked by guards Don Ead-
dy, Ray Pavichevich and Cap-
tain Doug Lawrence who com-
bined for a 40-point output.
Other Big Ten hoop squads have
been showing signs of point-get-
ting power in the two weeks be-
fore the eonference campaign gets
under way.

triumphs, one a 79-63 lacing of

Indiana opened its season by
trampling Valparaiso, 95-56,
but a field goal with two seconds
remaining gave underdog NotreI

With a dependable pivot oper-

ator still lacking, Iowa has split
even in two contests, beating But-
ler, 62-52, and then dropping s
one-point decision to Oklahoma.
MICHIGAN STATE captured its
opener by 11 points over Marquette
and remains idle until the Christ-

With many diverse fields there is greater opportunity
for college men and women to find the work most suited
to their desires; talents, and abilities. With a wider choice
of jobs there is more opportunity to get into work you
really enjoy.
The college graduate; working for G.E.; will discover
new fields opening up to him. He will probably discover
that. there is some activity in which he is particularly
interested. There are no fixed paths for college graduates
at G.E.The college man or woman who enters our Company
does not commit himself irrevocably to one type of work.
It's our tradition to encourage the newcomer to look
around, try several different assignments, and find the work
most satisfying to him and to which he can make the greatest
contribution. In G.E. the college graduate can investigate
many types of work before choosing his field. And, he can
