If Doug Philpott were a base-
ball player instead of an ace
hockey performer, he would prob-
ably, be looked upon as a "ball-
player's ballplayer"
Philpott, a lanky 182 pound
senior, is not the type of athlete
who snares, banner headlines or
emblazons record books. His
methodically smooth performances
geared for the sole purpose of
winning games, are not the kind
of showings that would set deni-
zens of the Coliseum afire as much
as they provoke the quieter ad-
miration of his teammates. Mich-
igan's hockey success story the
past three campaigns could not
have been written without him.
* * *
IT IS PHILPOTT'S intense de-
sire of going all out to win that
makes him such a vital cog in the
Wolverine hockey machinery. This
attitude transforms the tow-head,
a happy-go-lucky individual by
nature, into a crafty, reckless, and
ever cool dynamo once he is out
on the ice.
Swim Win Over

When injuries and ineligibili-
ties depleted the Wolverine
puckmen, it was Philpott who
drew the assignment of acting
as a Jack-of-all-Trades.
FORCED to alternate as both
center and wing on lines that by
necessity varied from game to
game, Philpott lost none of hiss
customary poise and, in fact, help-
ed steady sophomore Bill MacFar-
land, Yves Herbert, and Jay Gould.
When a penalty killer was needed
it was Philpott, because of his
effective fore-checking, who drew
the nod.
Philpott, who hails from Sarnia,
Canada has come a long way since
he was chosen in his rookie year
as center of the NCAA Champion-
ship Sextet in 1952.
In this campaign, as in all the
years Philpott has played for
Michigan, his play has been char-
acterized by the form of team
spirit that Vic Heyliger has said
is the reason f6r Michigan's hock-
ey successes.

HIS MOVE from Ann Arbor will
end a stay of over seven and a
half years at Michigan during
which time he played center on
Wolverine football squads in 1946
and 1947 and then served under
Jack Blott as line coach.
White was a member of the
1948 Rose Bowl champions that
crushed Southern California by
a 49-0 score on New Year's Day.
Switching to end coach will not
put White in a new environment

as far as football is concerned, for
he originally broke into college
ball as an end with Ohio State
back in 1941.
Buckeyes in 1942 he played end
against his brother, Paul White,
who was at that time playing in
the Michigan backfield, and who
was later to become captain of
the 1943 Wolverine squad.
After several years in the
armed forces, White came to
Michigan to continue his stud-
ies and his football career.

gridders, he was converted to a

Makes Mermen Title Threat

Iowa Presses Indiana For Cage Title

The Big Ten cage race became a
contest once again after the week-
end games, but the only contest
that Michigan's dribblers are in-
volved in is the fight to stay out of
the Western Conference basement.
With their losses to Wisconsin
and Minnesota, the Wolverines
are but a half game in front of
cellar dwelling Purdue and next
Monday's encounter between the
two teams may well decide who
gains the dubious honor of "win-
ning" tenth place.
ALTHOUGH the Maize and Blue
is not involved in any fight for the
Big Ten title, three other teams
Before Monday night's tussles,
it looked like Indiana had all but
mathematically clinched its sec-
ond straight Western Conference
crown and the NCAA bid that
goes with it.
However the Hoosiers were
soundly beaten by Iowa Monday,
82-64, and as Illinois squeaked by
Wisconsin that same night, 66-64,
Indiana now finds itself only one
game ahead of the Hawkeyes and
one and a half games in front of
the Illini.
THE REMAINING schedule for
the three contenders shows Indi-
ana at Ohio State this Saturday
and then at home with Illinois on
March 6th.
The Illini, besides their contest
with the Hoosiers, will travel to
Michigan this Saturday and then
move to Champaign two days lat-
er for a game with Northwestern.
Iowa is at Michigan State Sat-
urday before returning home to
play Ohio State on March 1st.
As for Bill Perigo's five, it
finally got back on the basket-

ball beam.True, the cagers were
still guilty of bad basketball in
the 77-56 rout by Wisconsin Sat-
urday night.
However on Monday, the Wol-
verines played well enough to have
one of the Minneapolis sportwrit-
ers ask Perigo whether it was the
best game Michigan had played
this season.
EVEN though the Maize and
Blue was beaten 79-70 by the Go-
phers, it outscrapped and outplay-
ed the winners throughout most
of the contest. It was only when
Paul Groffsky fouled out and the
rebounders began to tire that
Michigan was overtaken.
Perigo went with the smallest
lineup he has used this season
during most of the game. Har-
vey Williams, 6-8, was not used

after the first three minutes of
the game and 6-7 Milt Mead was
used sparingly.
The Wolverine coach has de-
cided to try the bench cure for
Williams in an attempt to snap
him out of his lethargic play. Jim
Barron, Don Eaddy, Groffsky, Tom
Jorgensen and John Codwell will
probably see the bulk of the action
from here on in.
With Groffsky at 6-4 the tallest
of this quintet, Michigan will havej
its hands full Saturday when Il-
linois and 6-9 John Kerr move into
Yost Field House.

The apparent ease with which
Michigan conquered Iowa in a
dual swimming meet last Satur-
day installed the Wolverines in
one of the favorite roles for the
Western Conference champion-
Coach Matt Mann's charges
shattered three Iowa pool records
in registering their 14th consecu-
tive dual meet victory. The Hawk-
eyes provided little competition as
Michigan won every event to pile
up a 75-18 score.
*, * *
JACK WARDROP, one half of
Mann's imported twin Scotch won-
ders, set a record as he edged out
his brother Bert in the 150 yard
individual medley. The former
record was held by his teammate
Bumpy Jones. Wardrop also bet-
tered Michigan State's Bert Mc-
Laughlin's record in the 440-yard
freestyle as he sped the distance
in the time of 4:39.2.
All American Don Hill bet-
tered the Iowa pool mark in
the 50-yard freestyle when he
bested teammate Bobby Knox
with a time of 22:7.
Iowa managed to pick up only

one second place. In the 200-
yard back stroke Hawkeye Don
VanderWater trailed Michigan's
Jim Kruthers who copped the race
with a time of 2:20.9.
** .*
JONES picked up the other
double victory as he captured both
the 220-yard freestyle and the
200-yard breaststroke. He was
timed at 2:11.8 in the freestyle
and 2:24 in the breaststroke.
The Maize and Blue relay
teams captured both relay
events, taking the 300-yard med-
ley relay in 2:56.8 and the 400-
yard free style relay in 3:33.6.
The Wolverine's only remaining
dual meet is with the Buckeyes
at Columbus this Saturday. The
meet victory should establish eith-
er Michigan or Ohio State as the
definite "team to beat" for the
Western Conference Champion-

When you come right down to it, you
smoke for one simple reason ... enjoy-
ment. And smoking enjoyment is all a
matter of taste. Yes, taste is what counts
in a cigarette. And Luckies taste better.
Two facts explain why Luckies taste
better. First, L.S./M.F.T.-Lucky Strike
means fine tobacco.. . light, mild, good-
tasting tobacco. Second, Luckies are ac-
tually made better to taste better .. .
always round, firm, fully packed to draw
freely rand smoke evenly.
So, for the enjoyment you get from
better taste, and only from better taste,
