Denver Pucksters
Out To Even Score

The Denver Pioneers have an
important score to settle when
they face Michigan's hockey team
in a two game series next Mon-
day and Tuesday nights.
Last year Denver tied Michi-
gan for second place in the Mid-
vest Hockey League and since the
top two teams are selected to play
in the NCAA championship tour-
nament, a poll of the circuit's
teams was necessary to pick the
other tourney representative.
* * *
MICHIGAN WAS selected, pri-
marily because of a somewhat bet-
ter season's record of 20 wins
against four losses as compared to
18. wins and six losses for the
This, of course didn't make the
Denvecites very happy and it
hurt even more when the Wol-
verines went on to annex the
The mile high city club hasn't
forgotten this slight by the lea-
gue's officials and is prepared to
demonstrate its superiority over
Vic Heyliger's aggregation in the
coming series.
IT APPEARS as if they are well
prepared. They have fifteen let-
termen returning from last year's
squad including high scoring wing-
man Bill Abbott who notched 49
points last year in 25 games.
Denver demonstrated its
strength in its first two games
this year by blasting Toronto
twice in a row, 7-2 and 8-3.
These victories compare favor-
ably with Michigan's win over.
Toronto last Saturday night by
a 6-3 margin.
The Pioneers are coached by
former Michigan great 1STeil Celley
who two years ago pacec'the Wol-
verines to a national title while
playing right wing for Heyliger's
THE LIKABLE Eveleth, Min-
nesota product was Michigan's
high scorer and most valuable
player that year.

Pioneer hockey fortunes. In .the

ANOTHER interesting sidelight.
on the game is the presence in
the Denver lineup of Mel Mullen,
brother of Michigan's third line
center, Doug. Although both Doug
and Mel are returning lettermen,
this will be their first meeting in
collegiate hockey *competition.
The Denver product from the
Mullen family didn't Join his
team until mid-season last year
somewhat after the Wolverines
and Pioneers had squared off in
late December.
Playing in less than half of Den-
ver's 25 games he racked up nine
goals and eight assists and is con-
sidered one of the Pioneers' most
dangerous scorers.

reputation and last year paced
Wolverine goal scorers with 18. He
has picked up a goal and two as-
sists in action so far this season.
The two game series next week
concludes a rugged four game
road trek for the Wolverines.
They play Coloradortomorrow
and Saturday before the set
with Denver.
Since Colorado and Denver are
generally considered Michigan's
most dangerous competition in its
quest for a third straight NCAA
title, the Wolverines must break
even to stay in the running.

ver split in two games, the Wol-
verines taking the first 7-5, and
the Pioneers the other by a 5-4

mediocre season, managed to earn
an even break with Michigan in
two games played in Denver.

with Denver University as Mel Mullen (left) of the Pioneers will
face brother Doug (right) of the Wolverines. Although Vic Hey-
liger's Maize and Blue squad encountered the Pioneers last year,
the intra-family squabble did not take place due to the fact that
Mel was not playing with the Denver sextet.
(Wolverine Cindermen Compete
In Annual Intra-S quad Contest

Coach Don Canham unveils his
1953 edition of the Wolverine
thinclads to track fans in the an-
nual pre-holiday time trials in
Yost Fieldhouse tonight.
Field events will begin at seven
with running events starting a
half hour later.
OF TOP interest is the debut of
numerous talented freshmen, who
will team with the sophomores in
an effort to outscore the juniors
and seniors.
The feature event on the card
is the mile run. Five men are
entered who have bettered 4:20.
Top gun, of course, is John Ross,
Big Ten mile indoor and outdoor
champ. Competition will come
from fellow junior George Lynch
and sophomore John Moule.
Also running are two men who
will not compete for the Wolver-
ines this year. Bill Hickman, who
will graduate in January, and
Graduate student Frank McBride.
McBride, who spent his under-
graduate days at South Dakota,
ran a 4:15 mile there last year.
THE QUARTER mile rates as
another thrill packed possibility.

Jack Carroll, Joe LaRue, Bill Bar-
ton, and Dan Hickman of the up-
perclassmen will match strides
with Grant Scruggs, Bob Rudesill,
Pete Sutton, and Ross McNab.
In the hurdles event the em-
phasis on youth has left Van
Bruner the only upperclass rep-
resentative in the highs, but he
will be assisted in the lows by
Al Rankin and Dale Brown.
The results of the 880 may well
decide who will carry the mail
for the Wolverines later in the
season. At present it boils down to
a duel between sophomore Geoff
Dooley and junior Roy Christian-
WITH LYNCH running in the
mile some of the keenest compe-
tition in the meet may result in
the two mile. Bob Hall, Bob Cut-
ting, and Buzz Guise will carry
the standard of the upperclassmen
against Al Lubina, George Jayne,
and George Rockwell.
The seniors will be without the
services of ace weight man Fritz
Nilsosn tonight. The Swedish shot-
putter has not as yet completely
recovered from a leg operation
which he underwent early this
fall and will be unable to com-

time Gomberg House was splash-
ing its way to a, 37-20, victory over
Kelsey House to annex the Resi-

Although weak in r e s e r v e
strength, Sigma Chi swept all the
firsts in the four individual events
to clinch its victory. After the 100

THE 25 YARD backstroke was
taken by Jim Peterson and the 25

Higgins, both of Sigma Chi. The
medley relay was won by Sigma Nu
when Sigma Chi was disqualified.
The 50 yard free style was taken
by C. A. Mitts of Sigma Chi.
Although Sigma Nu did not
take an individual first they did
take all the seconds as well as
the Medley Relay and tie for the
freestyle relay thus accounting
for the close score.

MSC Bases Cage Hopes on Newcomers


(Last in a Series)
Little more than a scramble for
the upper. reaches of the second
division is in store for Michigan

Of this trio, Coach Pete Newell
and his defensive-minded Spar-
tans are accorded the best chance
of finishing close to the league

FOUR REGULARS have depart-
ed from last year's squad that
compiled six wins in 14 league en-
counters for the fifth position, but
Newell has available some young
blood that showed to good advan-
tage in Michigan State's opening
62-51 defeat of Marquette.
Lone holdover in the East
Lansing camp is forward Keith
Stackhouse, a 6-1 junior who led
all MSC scorers in his sopho-
more year with 236 counters in
20 games for an 11.8 average.
Stackhouse goes at one of the
forward spots and his running
mate in the front-court is 6-3

go on a scoring splurge that net-
ted 13 tallies.
Biggest noise up at East Lan-
sing is 6-8 sophomore pivot op-
erator Bob Armstrong, the man
who is supposed to fill the shoes
of graduated all-around athlete
Bob Carey.
Armstrong proved a strong
boardman against Marquette and

some good talent to work with

out of the depths of the confer-
ence second division.

his junior year, heads a group of
nine returning lettermen. As a
sophomore, Petrancek placed sixth
in the Big Ten scoring fight with
215 points, averaging 15.4 markers
per game.

EXECTED TO share the brunt
of the Wildcat point-getting punch
is 6-2 Captain Larry Dellefield,
top man against Western Michigan

starting Northwestern forwards,

ing last season with 155 markers
and an 11.1 average.
Another veteran on an out-
fit which shows only one sen-

first-string forward. Ehmann

for the front-court spot by 6-4
Rob LeBuhn and Bud Grant, a
6-6 hustler who goes at either
a center or forward spot.

Four other returning letter-
men make up the balance of the
starting outfit. Jack Runyan and
John Toeppe gain the nod at the
forwards while 6-3 John Der-

Denny Blind go at the guards.
