Clare contents himself with setting
up the scores. The Smiths, Cowan,
and seniors Ed Robson and Bill
Clark are the offensive guns of the
Colorado attack.
Although the Wolverine sex-
tet has been laboring under tre-
mendous pressure, Coach Hey-
liger reports that team spirit is
high. Heyliger lauded his play-
ers for "playing their best hock-
ey of the season" but neverthe-

As usual the Wolverines bank on
their bread and butter line of Pat
Cooney, Doug Mullin and George
Chin and the trio of Doug Phil-
pott, Bill MacFarland and Jay
Goold to carry them to victory.
Except for a knee injury suffered
by Chin in the second Denver bat-
tle, the Heyligermen are physical-
ly ready. Fortunately, Chin's in-
jury is not serious enough to put
y him out of action.
Michigan's success at the tour-
nament has often been at the ex-
pense of Colorado. These humili-
ating defeats before the home folks
are another reason why Cheddy
Thompson would like to dash
Michigan's playoff hopes. When
two conflicting ambitions clash, as
they will tonight, some sparks are
inevitably bound to fly.

MICHIGAN HOCKEY coach Vic Heyliger (center) and Colorado
College's Cheddy Thompson (right), whose teams oppose each
other tonight at the Coliseum, met under happier circumstances
prior to the 1952 NCAA tourney at Colorado Springs. The scene
is livened by the presence of attractive Miss Leslie Lockhart,
tourney queen, on hand to welcome the opposing coaches.

Michigan's swimming team cap-
tured four meets in as many at-
tempts between semesters, extend-
ing Matt Mann's dual meet vic-
tory skein over a two year period
to twelve in a row.
The trip was highlighted by a
44-40 win over the highly touted
Sogners of Oklahoma. The Soon-
ers, who finished tenth in the Na-
tional Collegiate Championships a
year ago were considered to. have
improved vastly and are expected
to wind up in a higher national
position this season.
THE MEET featured seven pool
records, four of which were brok-
en by Oklahoma stars. .Graham
Johnston led the assault on the


record book with new marks in
the 220 and 440-yard freestyle
events. Bumpy Jones and Don Hill'
were the Wolverine record-break-
ers as the former lowered the
standard for the 150-yard indi-
vidual medley and the latter es-
tablished a 100-yard freestyle
The Sooners' other star was
Lynn Meiring who broke the-
200-yard backstroke record. Ok-

of Meiring, Jack Dyason, and
Peter Duncan and Michigan's

Ron Gora, Bob Knox, and Hill

downed Purdue in a romp 64-29, to
climax a trip that saw victories
over Northwestern, 72-21 and Iowa

Oklahoma meet. The squad also
visited Kansas City and Wichita,
Kansas, Indianapolis, Indiana, and

THREE DUAL meets remain for
the Michigan swimmers before the
Big Ten championship meet March
4-5-6 at Ann Arbor. The Wolver-
ines will host Michigan State to-
morrow night. The following two
weekends they will take to the
road for meets at Iowa and Ohio
Ohio State will undoubtedly
be the biggest obstacle in the
way of Mann's second consecu-
tive unbeaten season. The Buck-
eyes have a host of individual
stars and are the defending con-
ference champions.
Led by Dick Cleveland, who Sat-
urday set a new national record
of :21.9 for the 50-yard freestyle,
the Bucks have romped over all op-

Fisher, everybody's choice for
collegiate baseball's "Coach of the
Year" honors in 1953 has extend-
ed an invitation to join one of the
greatest winning traditions in col-
lege baseball. Michigan has made
a practice, of taking Big Ten
crowns ever since the Vermont-
born coach migrated to Ann Arbor
from the Cincinnati Redleg spring
training camp back in 1921.
GRADUATION took a heavy toll
of the Wolverine baseball squad
last year and Fisher is hoping that
in the new names that appear on
the lists posted at the south end
of Yost Field House this week, he
will come up with some valuable
additions to his 1954 team and
those in years to come.
In accepting the tryout "invi-
taton"-and capitalizing upon
it-newcomers will find them-
selves in gaudy company with
some of the finest collegiate
ballplayers in the nation.
Last season the Wolverines
fought their way to a tie for the
Big Ten title for the second year
in a row, and parlayed their Dis-
trict Eight NCAA bid into a Na-
tional Championship at the NCAA
tournament held last June at Om-
aha, Nebraska. It was the first
time he had entered, despite many
tourney bids in the past.
ONE OF Fisher's current 'prob-
lems" as he launches his rather
premature "spring" training per-
iod in his predominately left-
handed hurling corps. Actually,
most other college baseball coaches
would give their eye-teeth to land
one of the Wolverines top port-
side quartet, includingaveterans
Mary Wisniewski and Jack Ritter
and sophomores Dick Peterjohn
and Mark Farelli.
The only righthanded starter
on the staff is Captain Jack Cor-
bett-a stand-out all-around
performer who is making the
switch to first base this year, but
will still be available for spot
mound chores.
Corbett fills in one of the spots
left open by graduation. Michigan
lost its superb double-play combi-
nation of* All-American shortstop
Bruce Haynam, steady secondI
sacker Gil Sabuco and Captain and
first baseman Bill Mogk. Last year
the trio impressed observers wher-
ever they played with the "profes-
sional" caliber of their infield per-
* * *
BUT THEY ATE up their eligi-
bility as did heavy-sticking cen-
terfielder Frank Howell, reserve
outfielder Paul Fancher and re-
lief pitcher Dick Yirkoski.
Thus Fisher finds himself un-
tested "down the middle"-aft-
er he gets past his pitching corps
and the solid veteran catcher,
Dick Leach. He is faced with re-
stocking his second base com-
bination after being severely
hurt when the brilliant Reno
Bertoria turned professional.

was a better move to finish his
college education in the off-sea-
son. Replacing the Tigers "bonus
baby" in the shortfield will be
newcomer Moby Benedict, a con-
verted third baseman.
* * *
FRANK RONAN, another soph-
omore, figures to have the inside
track at second base and together
with Benedict (who is ex-captain
Mogk's brother-in-law) he will
give Michigan an untested key-
stone combination in the coming
IWestern Conference campaign. It
is not expected that the rookie
pair will field and hit in the style
of its illustrious predecessors, but
hope is high that it will develop in-
to a solid defensive unit by the
time the season is underway.
Hoop star Don Eaddy, disap-
pointing at the plate last sea-
son after tearing the league
apart in 1952, returns to third
base. Although Eaddy's perform-
ance with the willow fell off last
year, hbs erratic fielding picked
up to a point where eyebrows
were raised in the usually com-
placent Major League scouting
All Big Ten left-fielder Paul
Lepley, a powerful and consistent
left-handed hitter and a sure fly-
hawk with an amazing arm re-
turns to the outer gardens as does
chunky Dan Cline, an off-season
football operative. Cline blossomed
into peak form last year just when
it counted the most-at the post
season tournament for the nation-
al laurels.
* * * 4
IN CENTER FIELD it appears
as if catcher Leach's brother Bob
will alternate with newcomer
Howie Tomlin according to the op-
ponents pitching selections. At
present the lineup appears to be
long on pitching talent, but weak
at the plate and untested in a
couple of vital fielding spots.
Although Fisher is confident of
being able to field nine solid base-
bailers on opening day, he is still
anxious to find out if there is any
as yet uncovered baseball talent
enrolled at the university. Thus his
call for any and all interested in
wearing the' Maize and Blue dia-
mond outfits (the epitome of base-
ball haberdashery by the way) is
wide open.
And chances are if an aspiring
athlete does go down to the Field
House this or next week, and sticks
with the club-he'll most likely
play for a champion before he's
through. After all, Fisher has won
or shared 16 Big Ten pennants--
nine in the last 13 seasons.

Friday, February 12 I

It took a class reunion
to show Ed Mahler, '50,
that all first jobs are
not alike. He tells us why.
(Reading time: 33 seconds)



...it's bound to be Bud
You see it so often ... a warm welcom
for a cold bottle of Budweiser. And it's
no wonder that the distinctive taste of
Budweiser pleases people as no other
beer can do ... for only Budweiser is
brewed by the costliest process on Earth

The class reunion at his alma mater,
Swarthmore College, was an eye-opener
for Ed Mahler. The talk among the
Class of '50 switched to jobs. Ed had
taken it for granted that everybody was
happy with his work.
Then he found that some of his class-
mates had had two or three jobs since
leaving school. Others had kept the
same one but weren't satisfied. By stick-
ing with his first job and intending to
make it a lifetime career, Ed suddenly
discovered he had a head start.
After being graduated with a B.A. in
Economics, he went to work for Bell
Telephone Company of Pennsylvania in
1950. He reports he chose the Telephone

He was assigned to the Traffic Depart.
ment, which has the responsibility for
seeing that customers' calls are handled
efficiently. The job included personnel
work in addition to developing better
operating methods and practices. He
was quickly put on his own.
Now Ed has been transferred to the
job of estimating the amount and type
of new equipment which will be needed
in central offices as their customers
Ed points out that projecting himself
into the future isn't anything new. That's
precisely what he attempted to do when
he chose his first-and only-job.
