Scholars, Teachers To Wage Battles
In Twelve Events at Sports Builditg
Michigan's students get a chance to meet their profs on even
terms tonight when the Intrainural department puts on its annual
Faculty vs. Students sports program.
From handball courts to pool tables the students will challenge
their tutors in twelve different sports and in over 50 separate events.

THE BIGGEST part of the program will be held at the SportsI
Building with various other events scheduled for more appropriate
The rifle range, for instance, will be the scene of a battle

The top billiard sharks from the faculty will take on the students

... three of Michigan's swimming hopes for the future

It is often said in collegiate
swimming circles that the key to
a team's future is the strength of
the squad's sophomores.
If such is the case, Michigan's
future is a propitious one. Matt
Mann's successor will be able to



The winner of the Big Ten track
meet to be held at Champaign in
less than two weeks may be de-
cided in a small room on the sec-
ond floor of Michigan's Athletic
Administration Building.
The center of attention in the
} room is a mammoth blackboard
which: covers all of one wall. On
the slate each event that will be
run in the Western Conference
meet is listed and under each event
are names-names o probable en-
tries from the Big Ten schools.
, * *
HEAD COACH Don Canham has
spent many hours up in that dingy,
and often times dirty room, trying
to figure out who Illinois and the
other schools will run in each
event and the probable winners for
each race.
What Canham and his asso-
ciates, assistant coach Elmer
Swanson and track expert Phil
Diamond are trying to do is to
place the Maize and Blue cinder-
man in the races where the com-
petition is not particularly po-
tent. By placing his men care-
fully, Canham hopes to garner
enough points so as to bring the
Western Conference Champion-,
ship back to Ann Arbor.
Take, as case in point, Joe
Smith, a mythical Michigan track-
ster. Smith can either run in the
300 yard or 440 yard event. In the
-quarter-mile, however, Illinois has
the brilliant Ralph Fesenden. Can-
ham, then, would probably place
to pease!!

Smith in the 300 yard event be-
cause it ishalmost impossible for
Smith to pick up the five points a
first in the quarter-mile would get
him. In the 300-yard race, on the
other hand, Smith might be able
to pick up a first place.
* * *
CANHAM'S self-imposed job is,
of course, extremely difficult and
arduous. In discussing his task,
Canham said, "It is more difficult
to figure where to place our men
this year than it has been ever be-
fore. There seems to be more ex-
cellent athletes in the conference
than in any previous season."
The coach continued, "As it
looks now, it will be a battle
down to the wire between Illinois
and Michigan. It is so close that
a break will probably decide who
cops the title. Of course, the I-
lini have an advantage in the
fact that they will be competing
at home and they will have a big
crowd rooting for them."
To show how Lady Luck can de-
cide who will win the meet, Can-
ham pointed to the fact that when
a Michigan trackman tripped over
a hurdle a few years ago it cost
Michigan the Conference crown.
Canhampointed out that bad
placing of men has hurt Michi-
gan's chances in the past. "All we
can do is hope," the coach said.
"Just because we've made mistakes
in the past, or because Michigan
has come in second so many times,
is no reason for us to become dis-
couraged," he concluded.

Chin, Mullen, Cooney Revitalize Hockey Squad

Night Editor






In a critical moment in last
year's hockey season, Michigan
coach Vic Heyliger evolved a line-
up change which sparked the Wol-
verines to their third straight
NCAA hockey title.
Following a humiliating 5-2 loss
to league leading Minnesota,
which threatened to put the Maize
and Blue out of the Midwest Hock-
ey League race, Heyliger moved
Doug Mullen into the center slot
on the second line in between Pat
Cooney and George Chin.
THE MANEUVER worked al-
most immediate wonders and al-
though Michigan lost again to
Minnesota the next night, it
bounced back to win the final five
regular season league games and

two playoff contests to take its
third straight National crown.
The contribution of Mullen,
Chin and Cooney to this resurg-
ence can be measured in cold,
hard point totals. Working to-
gether for the first time in their
careers, the trio accounted for
20 of the Wolverines' 41 goals
and finished one, three, four in
the Michigan scoring race.
Chin had 42 points. Mullen 35
and Cooney 29. However despite
its success last season, it has been
the line's superb play in 1953-54
that has merited Heyliger's praise
as one of the real great lined in
Michigan hockey history.
* * '.
DUE to ineligibilities and crip-
pling injuries, the NCAA cham-
pions have been forced to play all
season with only ten men.

Mullen, enjoying his greatest
season in college hockey, has
played as many as 45 minutes
in some games and tops all Wol-
verine scorers with 48 points.
Chin, with 18 goals and 22 as-
sists has 40 points and Cooney's
12 goals and 23 assists give him
35 points for the year.
The 47 goals the line has de-
posited in opposition nets is six
more than all the rest of the team
has scored together.
ALL THREE are fast skaters
and as Colorado College coach
Cheddy Thompson said last week
following his team's double loss
to Michigan, "They know what to
do with the puck when. they get it
in front of the net."
However, it isn't only offense
that makes this line top-notch in
collegiate hockey. It is an excel-
lent fore-checking and . back-
checking line as is evidenced by
their being utilized continuously
against the opposition's No. 1 lines.
In this weekend's big two game
series with Minnesota, the last
on Coliseum ice for the senior trio,
Chin, Cooney and Mullen will be
used against John Mayesich, Dick
Dougherty, and Gene Campbell,
considered by Minnesota fans as
the best college combination in
the game today.

Which side of the desk will
you be on ten years from now?

Recently a young mid-westerner enrolled at a
university as a Logic major. His father had told him,
with some understatement, that he was illogical. He refused
to squire a pretty girl to a dance because her name was
June Betz and he was against gambling.
He wouldn't eat avocados because they were also called
"alligator pears" and he didn't like alligators.
In addition, he was a'slob.
Some of the men in his dorm tried to talk to him.
"Look at that shirt," they said. "The material's cheesy.
Why don't you hop down and get a Van Heusen
Oxfordian ... it's soft, fine oxford cloth."
"I'm not attending Oxford. I'm attending Old Siwash,"
answered our boy.
"But, look, Buster. This oxford cloth is woven tighter
so it'll last longer. It's a smart investment.
And it only costs 4.50."
"So who needs it? I might get hit by a truck. Then what
good would it be?" quoth Buster.
"What about your collar? Flat as a pancake! Don't you
want a good-looking button-down with that famous
Van Heusen relaxed-roll?" one asked.
"I got nothing against pancakes. I hate rolls."
Note: Our man flunked Logic post haste, and was drafted.
The Army has him classified under "Secret Weapons."
