Team Sets Meet Record

Cindermen Run Two Mile
In Year's Top Indoor Time
Mead Jumps 6-5 To Take Second
In Knights of Columbus High Jump

K Special to The Daily
CLEVELAND, Ohio-Coach Don
Canham's two-mile relay team ran
the university relay in the faste
time of the indoor season last
night, 3:29.3, to defeat nationlal
champion Fordham in the 14th an-
nual Knights of Columbus track
meet.
Syracuse, IC4A champ, was the
earlier leader in the event. John
Moule who ran a 1:53 quarter
and John Ross who ran a speedy
1:52.9 (the fastest half-mile he's
ever run) combined to give anchor
man Pete Gray a lead Fordham
couldn't overcome.
s * s
THE TIME, which broke the
meet and Big Ten record, was all
the more unusual because it wgs
run on a very small track-one
which has 12 laps to the mile.
Michigan's one-mile r e I a y
A team, composed of Pete Sutton,
Dave Hessler, Jack Carroll, and
Grant Scruggs finished second
behind Indiana.

tie for second place in the high

IN OTHER events, Van Bruner
formerly of Michigan took a third
in the 45-yard high hurdles,
freshman Laird Sloan placed
fourth in the 600, and freshman
Hope Jones took a fifth in the
1000-yard race.
Another meet record fell in the
college mile relay which a Loyola
University quartet clipped off in
3:25.7, compared with the 3:27.3
mark that Michigan Normal set
three years ago.
Maynard in the 1000, Abe B; -
ler in the 45 -yard dash, and Mal
Whitfield in the 600 were otheg.
winners.
Yankees Lure Sain
From Retirement
Johnny Sain, big right-handed
hurler, who helped the New York
Yankees win their last three pen-
nants, came out of retirement yes-
terday and is expected to rejoin
the world champions Tuesday.
Sain, who left baseball after the
1953 World Series in favor of op-
erating his automobile agency, was
lured back by a salary increase
estimated to be about $5,000 to
$8,000. He compiled a 14-7 record
last year. Before leaving his home
in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.- he
stated that this would definitely
be his last season.

USC Loses
To Bradley
Five, 74-72
KANSAS CITY - (P) - Bradley
and La Salle won the right to vie
for the NCAA basketball tourna-
ment championship by scoring
semifinal victories over Southern
California and Penn State respec-
tively last night before more than
10,000 fans at Municipal Audi-
torium.
The winners will meet tonight
for the title in the second game
of a doubleheader. The losers will
meet in the first contest for third
place.
BRADLEY came from-11 points
back to squeeze out a 74-72 win
over the Trojans in the first game.
A driving lay-up by Bob Carney,
who tallied 20 points during the
night, gave the Braves the lead
for good with a minute left to
play.
Led by the hook shooting of
Roy Irvin, game high scorer
with 23 points, Southern Cal
moved to a 40-29 lead in the
second quarter. However, Brad-
ley, sparked by Carney and Dick
Estergard, who netted 21, caught
the Trojans midway in the final
period.
In the nightcap, La Salle easily
defeated Penn State, 69-54. The
losers pressing zone defense failed
to halt the Explorers, but it did
make them look bad.

By ALAN EISENBERG
The Minneapolis Lakers, defend-
ing champions of the National
Basketball Association, are again
favored to winrthe title this year
and thereby retain the league
crown.
The play-offs, which started ear-
lier this week, are being run under
a new system this year. Under the
present rules, the top three teams
from each division qualified for
the play-offs and will meet each
other indivisional round-robin
tournament.
* * *
EACH OF the teams will play
the others once at home and once
away. The two top teams in each
series then will meet in a best-of-
three affair. Should the round-
robin end in a three-way tie, the
team which finished first during
the regular season would qualify
automatically and the other two
teams would play one game to de-
cide who entered the semi-final
round.
The two winners of the round-
robin would meet for the cham-
pionship in a best-four-of-seven
series. If needed, the extra home
game will go to the team which
finished the season with a better
percentage.
The Lakers, who finished in first
place in the Western Division, are
led by such top players as George
Mikan, Clyde Lovellette, Jim Pol-

lard, Slater Martin, Vern Mikel-
son and Whitey Skoog. Mikan and
Lovellette, All-Americans from De-
paul and Kansas, respectively, are
potent scoring threats from the
center position.
POLLARD and Mikelson are
among the best rebounding and
shooting forwards in the circuit.
An extremely hard worker Pol-
lard was voted by the league's vet-
eran players as the best player in
the NBA.
Rochester, conquerer of Fort
Wayne, 82-75, in the first West-
ert Division playoff tilt, has such
stars as high scoring center Ar-
nie Risen, Bob Wanzer and Bob
Davies, All-Americans from Se-
ton Hall, and guard Jack Mc-
Mahon, from St. Johns in Brook-
lyn, was last year's rookie-of-
the-year and possesses one of the
best two-handed set shots in the
league.
A combination of youth and ex-
perience jelled for the Fort Wayne
Pistons who finished in third place
in the western section of the lea-
gue. Mel Hutchins and Larry Foust
combined with veterans Max Zas-
lofsky, Leo Barnhorst, Fred Scol-
ari, and "whiz kid" Andy Phillips
to produce an effective scoring at-
tack.
THE NEW YORK Knickerbock-
ers, winner-in the Eastern Division
for the second successive year,
have such outstanding talent as
Vince Boryla, "Sweetwater" Clif-
ton, who used to play for the Har-
lem Globetrotters, high scoring
Carl Braun, and the McGuire
brothers, Dick and Al.
Three players, "Easy" Ed Mac-
auley, All American from St.
Louis, Bill Sharman, and Bob
Cousy, All-American from Holy
Cross sparked the Boston Cel-
tics to a second place finish.
Cousy, who is one of the smallest
players in the league is an excel-
lent ball handler and playmaker.
Last year he led the league in as-
sists and finished in the top five
in scoring.
Adolph Schayes, who's league re-
bound record was broken this sea-
son by Harry Gallatin of New
York, led the Syracuse Nationals to
a third place finish in the Eastern
Division.
Other men who have played well
for Al Cervi's squad this year are
Paul Seymour and Billy Gabor.
Both are good ball handlers and
playmakers.

Four Grapplers To Represent
Wolverines in NCAA Tourney

By JACK HORWITZ
Michigan's highly rated wrest-
lers are now turning their sights
on the National Collegiate tourna-
ment to be held March 26 and 27
at the University of Oklahoma.
Coach Cliff Keen is planning. to
send four of his top grapplers, two
of whom garnered Western Con-
ference championships, and one
runner-up who lost on a split de-
cision.
s .s
DIMINUTIVE Norvard "Snip"
Nalan, holder of the Big Ten 130-
pound title for the last three years,
will be the only Wolverine de-
fending an NCAA crown.
The dynamic little captain of
the Wolverine wrestling squad
captured his NCAA title last
year when he defeated the East-
ern Intercollegiate Champion
from Penn State, Dick Lemyre,
to add another honor to his fast
growing collection of titles.
Junior letterman, Andy Kaul,
who captured the Big Ten 137-
pound title at East Lansing, two
weeks ago, will attempt to capture
a national title in his second at-
tempt.
* * * .
KAUL COMPETED last year
but was ousted in the first round
by Oklahoma's Ron Scott, the Big
Seven Titlist. He was undefeated
in dual-meet competition this year
and has lost only twice in his en-
tire collegiate career.

Coach Keen is also pinning his
title hopes on Don Haney, a
sophomore who is competing in
his first full season of collegiate
wrestling. Haney placed second
in the 147-pound class in the
Western Conference champion-
ships, losing out in one of the
most unusual matches in Big
Ten history. He lost a split de-
cision to Bud Weick of Purdue's
championship team, when after
the full nine minutes the score
was deadlocked at 1-1 and the
referees awarded the title to
Weick.
The fourth man to travel to
Norman, Oklahoma, will be John
McMahon, 157-pound sophomore,
whose great showing and improve-
ment during the past season, plac-
es him among the best of colleg-
iate wrestlers.
McMAHON placed fourth in the
Western Conference Meet as he
was downed by Harlan Jenkin-
son of Iowa in the consolation
round. However, he picked up
valuable points for the second
place Wolverine squad earlier in
the meet.
Semifinalist in last year's
heavyweight division, Dick O'-
Shaughnessy, will be missing
from action because of an in-
jured knee. O'Shaughnessy, last
year's Western Conference titl-
ist and 1953 gridiron captain,
has been out of action for the
latter part of the season and
previous examination proved
that an operation was a neces-
sity.

NCAA BACKSTROKE ENTRANT:
Hard Work Lifts Chase to Stardom

By BILL STONE
The road to success has been a
hard and tough, but rewarding
climb for backstroker John Chase
of the Michigan swimming team.
Chase, who hails from Grosse
Pointe, Michigan, came to Ann
Arbor in the fall of 1949, a cap-
able but unheralded swimmer. At
Grosse Pointe High, Chase showed
signs of promise, even though his
secondary school record wasn't as
spectacular as those of Don Hill,
Bumpy Jones or a few other of his
well known Wolverine teammates.
* * *
HIS FRESHMAN year at Mich-
igan was one of work and pro-
gress. Perfecting starts and turns,
and developing the strength that
is so necessary for a college swim-

mer, occupied the major portion of
the Maize and Blue star's time.
The grind of the freshman
year began to pay off in Chase's
sophomore year as he broke into
many Big Ten dual meets. How-
ever it wasn't until his junior
year that the careful guidance
of Matt Mann became evident in
the performances of backstrok-
er Chase.
After a better than ayrage dual
meet campaign, Chase made his

pionships held at the University
of Iowa pool. Hitting his stride
under the influence of title meet
atmosphere, Chase placed sixth
in the 100 yard backstroke, and
fifth in the conference in the 200
yard backstroke event.
