Small CaptainLooms Big on 'M' Cage Scene

THE COLISEUM down at the foot of Hill street opens for business
tonight as the Michigan hockey team, under the tutelage of Vic
Heyliger, opens its 1953-1954 season. The big barn with ice for a
floor has been the royal palace of the American collegiate ice sport
ever since the National Collegiate Athletic Association started passing
out puck crowns six years ago.
Since 1948, the Wolverines have been national champs four
times and have placed third twice-since 1951, they have won the
championship three years running. Despite this heritage of victory,
strange rumblings eminating from the Coliseum forshadow a crumbl-
ing of the' Michigan ice dynasty this year and gloomy predictions
have put the Maize and Blue in the strange role of underdogs for
the coming Midwest Collegiate Hockey League season.
The loss of three valuable men through graduation and one
key operative due to academic difficulties are said to have dealt
a crippling blow to Michigan's chances in the coming MCHL
race. Minnesota, North Dakota and Colorado College, three loop
opponents, all have powerful squads and to most experts they rule
as logical choices to force the Wolverines to settle for the fourth
rung of the Midwest League's ladder.
Somehow all the black forcasts don't convince us. True, Hey-
liger's team won't strike the same mortal fear in opponents as it has
in years past-but it has plenty of talent and should be strong
enough to be right in the thick of the fight for the MCHL honors.
Michigan has three lines, three defensemen and two fine goalers in
first-stringer Willard Ikola and reserve Bill Lucier.
Quantity and Quality .. .
HEYLIGER didn't have any more depth last season when he steered
the Wolverines to the NCAA championship, but it remains to
be seen if this year's quality is as high as last year's. The critical
point of Michigan's success in the 1953-1954 campaign lies in two
crucial series during the first semester. The Wolverines travel to
Grand Forks, North Dakota and Minneapolis to meet two of the
,.strongest MCHL sextets on foreign ice-if they are able to split this
quartet of road contests, they would be in good position to make a
strong bid in the league race. By garnering one of the top two spots
in the MCHL Michigan would assure itself of an invitation to the
NCAA tournament at Colorado Springs next March.
After mid-year, the Wolverines will be strengthened with the
addition of defensemen Neil Buchanan and Reg Shave and forward
Terry Sheehan. Buchanan and Sheehan won't reach their first year
of eligibility until the second semester and Shave, held out by scho-
lastic troubles, will play out the latter part of his senior year. The
availability of this trio will help soften the loss of Doug Mullen, at
present center of the Wolverine's first line.
Mullen, who graduates in February, operates between .wings
George Chin and Pat Cooney to form an all-senior line that is
expected to be Michigan's chief offensive weapon and is figured
to take care of the lions share of the early-season scoring. The
second line, composed of veteran Doug Philpott at center with
sophs Bill McFarland and Jay Goold at the flanks is one of
Michigan's imponderables. Blessed with great potential, but
untested under game conditions, its success could well make the
difference in the success or failure of the Wolverines offense.
The third line comprised of junior Telly Mascarin and first year
men Yyves Hebert and Don McArthur could be a valuable asset if
it operates effectively to spell the first two units. The eligibility of
Buchanan, Shave and Sheehan-counted on heavily to bolster the
defense presently comprised of Captain Jim Haas and seniors Lou
Paolatto and Bert Dunn-could also operate to strengthen the three
A Boost in Store...
WITH BUCHANAN AND SHAVE available, Haas and Dunn could
be spared for offensive duty, and along with Sheehan they would
be able to make up for the loss of Mullen-perhaps in addition making
a scoring threat of the third line.
The mid-year additions take on all the more importance when
the schedule gets hectic in February. In that single month the Wol-
verines play 10 of their 16 league games, six in a nine day stretch
extending from the fifth through the thirteenth. Four of these con-
tests figure to be especially tough, a home series with Colorado
College's Bengals and two games at Houghton, Michigan against
Michigan Tech. Tech doesn't have the same player depth and talent
that Colorado boasts, but the Engineers-coached by ex-Wolverine
Al Renfrew-are consistently hard to beat on their home ice.
In view of this quirk of the schedule, the added depth will be
put to good use right away as the Wolverines attempt to come out
of the six games in a challenging position in the loop standings.
The four games with McGill and Toronto encompassing this
and next weekend will provide a rugged test to show just how
good Michigan really is. All of the "paper potential" in the
world doesn't make much difference if it can't be brought into
play under game conditions. Strong tribute to this was made by
the failure of Denver University in last year's league race and
Minnesota's crack-up at the 1953 national tourney.
Heyliger has long been credited with an ability to get the most
out of every player at his command. This may well play a big part
should the "prima donnas" at Colorado College and Minnesota revert
to form. Mere strength in numbers can't make a team and Michigan
might well make up with al-around balance what it lacks in indi-
vidual talent. The Wolverines did it last year and the crowds at the
NCAA tournament at Colorado Springs will never forget it.

A quick-thinking fireball cap-
tain by the name of Ray Paviche-
vich will lead Michigan's basket-
ball squad into its season opener
against the University of Pitts-
burgh L turday night.
Pavichevich, who already has
two years of vwrsity experience
under his belt, is just the man
that the Wolverines need at the
captain post. The squad is com-
prised mainly of juniors and
sophomores and his steadying in-
fluence will be a prime factor when
the team is under fire.
"PAV," as his teammates call
him, is strictly a playmaker and
a floor leader. He paces the team

and sets up the plays. Last year, to make us a good field general.

Standing five-eleven, "Pav" is
on the small side whencompar-
ed to most basketball players of
the present day. However, he
makes up for his height defici-
ency with tremendous drive and
fight. The .22-year old senior's
scrappy type of play is a valu-
able asset to the team. More oft-
en than not he will come up with
a loose ball in a scramble under
the boards and start a successful
fast break.

AP Picks Dohoney, Giel,
Lattner asAll-Americans

NEW YORK - (P) - Two great
Midwestern backs, John Lattner
of Notre Dame and Paul Giel of
Minnesota, occupy the spotlight
on the 1953 Associated Press All-
America football team announced
They are the only repeaters from
the 1952 team. Paul Cameron of
U.C.L.A. and David Koose Johnson
of Rice, round out the first team
THE TEAM was selected on the
recommendations of boards of
newspaper and radio experts rep-
resenting every region of the coun-
try. It takes into account all the
season's games through Nov. 28.
Rounding out the first team
are Don Dohoney of Michigan
State and Sam Morley of Stan-
ford at ends, Stanley Jones of
Maryland and Jack Shanafelt of
Penn at tackles, J. D. Roberts of
Oklhoma and Crawford Mims of
Mississippi at guards, and Larry
Morris of Georgia Tech at cen-
With the change in the ,substi-
tution rule, the AP has returned to
a single first team instead of of-
fensive and defjnsive squads.
The development of versatile,
60-minute football players such as
were known a decade ago brought
much sharper focus on personali-
ties in 1953. As a result, the re-
doubtable players that made up
the first All-America were closely
challenged by the 1953 second
team, the backfield of which is

, _.

comprised of Bernie Faloney of
Maryland, J. C. Caroline of Illinois,
Bob Garrett of Stanford, and Bob-
by Cavazos of Texas Tech.
The All-America line is big
through center but light at the
ends. Dohoney at 193 and Morley
at 185 are below average in size,
but powerful. Dohoney was most
spectacular on defense, and in
Michigan State's defeat of Min-
nesota 21-0 was largely respon-
sible for holding Giel to a net of
only 23 yards. Morley was at his
best'on offense, catching 45 passes
for 594 yards and six touchdowns
to lead the Pacific Coast Confer-
The only colleges to place more
than one man on the three teams
are Maryland, with Jones on the
first and Faloney on the second;
Notre Dame with Lattner on the
first and Art Hunter at tackle on
the second; and Stanford, with
Morley on the first, and the other
half of a great passing combina-
tion, Garrett, on the second.
