Swim Stars To Compete in Annual AAU Meet

Daily Sport
Staff Calls
For Tryouts
If you call yourself a sports ex-
pert and have often wished to ex-
press your views on Michigan
ports in print, now is your chance.
The sports staff of the Michigan
Daily offers opportunities to not
only write sports, but to meet all
of Michigan's famed athletes,
coaches, and athletic officials.
Intensive Instruction
If you can't write, don't worry.
The Daily Sports Staff will put
tryouts through an intensive writ-
ing instruction program, and with-
in a few days, every tryout will be
placed on a varsity "beat" and
will also have the opportunity of'
covering intramural sports. No ex-
perience ,is necessary, for it is
soon gained after a few w.eeks on
the "night-desk."
Soon, the tryout is advanced to
soph staff positions, and begins to
actually write cover stories of the
top athletic events. If the person
shows the initiative and the per-
severance, he will then be made a
Night Sports Editor, and have a
chance to actually publish the Dai-
ly sports page.
There is always room at the top,
and the best staffers get the top
editors positions in their senior
years. So don't delay . . . If you
would like to try out for the Sports
Staff, Call at the Daily in person
anytime in the afternoon or eve-
ning, and ask to speak to a sen-
ior editor or a night editor.
A promising future may well be
in the making for you.

On a bitter wintry night in Feb-
ruary of 1920, a group of enthusi-
asts met to form what was in later
years to become a top sextet in
cellegiate hockey.
Weinberg Arena was the scene
of the birth of Michigan's hockey
team, and since then the Wolver-
ine icers have risen to phenomenal
heights in the field of collegiate
hockey, and will continue to do so
as the 1954-55 season opens against
McGill University.
The University fans took little in-
terest in hockey at the outset, but
as they came to realize how much
excitement it held, their enthusi-
asm grew, as did the size of the
crowds at the matches.
Not Recognized
Although the University did not
as yet recognize hockey as a var-
sity sport, each player was pre-
sented with a sweater and class nu-
merals in recognition of his work
on the team.
For a while obstacles, such as
sloppy ice and continuing postpone-
ments, drove hockey at Michigan
into oblivion, but the team made a
gallant come-back in the new Coli-
seum, meeting such schools as
Michigan Tech, Michigan State,
and Minnesota.
In 1922, Minnesota's Gophers fi-
nally succeeeded in winning varsity
recognition from their school and
hopes soared for the Maize and
That season an all-time crowd of
2,500 gathered to see Michigan
smash Michigan State 4-1 in the
opening game. The Wolverines fin-
ished the season with a 9-2 record,
finding defeat only at the hands
of Notre Dame and Michigan
School of Mines.
Start Road Trips
Road trips were becoming in-
creasingly more successful. Fans
traveled to Michigan Tech and Wis-
consin to see the team trounce its
Finally, in the summer of 1922,
the Michigan icers were placed in
the varsity class by the Athletic
Board. The Michigan Daily accur-
ately predicted "This may mean

that a new form of intercollegiate
activity will rise to a place of pop-
ularity in winter sports, along with
basketball and swimming." This
has proved to be one of its most
accurate predictions to date.
The '20's and '30's saw hockey
in a slump, but its popularity did
not wane, and fans continued to
give it full support.
As a result, an intercollegiate
league was formed, to grow later
into the present Midwest Collegiate
Hockey League.
In 1944 Michigan received new
blood in the hockey field in the
form of Coach Vic Heyliger, for-
mer Michigan and Chicago Black-
hawk star. A new era dawned for
the Maize and Blue.
Heyliger Produces Victories
Heyliger brought the hockey
team out of its over-long slump and
drove it to one victory after an-
Under his guidance, the Wolver-
ines captured league titles in 1945-
46, 1946-47, and NCAA titles in
1947-48, 1950-51, 1951-52, 1952-53.
As the 1954-55 season gets under-
way, hope reigns high in the Mich-
igan hockey club. From a 1-0 vic-
tory in their first game with As-
sumption College in 1920, the team
has risen to the position of king of
collegiate hockey. The Wolverines
are expected to still retain this po-
sition when the new season draws
to a close.
