Undefeated Wolverine Icemen To Face
Strong Western Squads Before Christmas

Having completed its most suc-
cessful performance against Ca-
nadian opposition in recent years,
Michigan's undefeated hockey
squad is, nevertheless, looking for-
ward to its pre-Christmas four-
game journey to the state of Colo-
rado with a feeling of apprehen-
The Wolverines ended their
warmups for the impending West-
ern Hockey League race last Sat-
urday night by thrilling the crowd
at the Coliseum with a come-from-
behind 3-3 tie with the Montreal
Follows 3-2 Triumph
This followed an exciting 3-2
win over Montreal on Friday and
two victories the previous week-
end against McGill University.
However, as Coach Vic Heyliger
put it, "the competition gets
rougher every game from now on
and if we want to keep up with it,
we're going to have to improve
our offense a bit."
This was the main weakness
seen in the small Wolverine team
in action last weekend. Although
Montreal's defense was obviously
better than McGill's, Heyliger felt
that his men could have taken
greater advantage of scoring op-
portunities, especially during the
15 times that the Carabins were
penalized in the two games.
M' Scorers Few
Only four players broke into
the scoring column against Mon-

been important elements in Mich-
igan's surprisingly good early sea-
son showing.
To Rejoin Squad
Latest reports reveal that Schil-
ler will rejoin the team, at least
for practice, by Wednesday. It will
then be determined whether he
can help the squad out West.
If Schiller cannot play and
Buchanan is moved to defense,
Yves Hebert will probably assume
Buchanan's regular position with
the second forward line.
Hebert, who missed the McGill
series because of a pre-season in-
jury, saw a good deal of action last
weekend and is expected to be
used even more in the future, re-
gardless of the physical condi-
tion of the rest of the team. He
will have a sufficient opportunity
to show all his skills in the forth-
coming Western trip.
Team To Travel West
The trip with two game stops
at Colorado College this Friday
and Saturday and at the Univer-
sity of Denver next Tuesday and
Wednesday, comes with Michi-
gan's point-scoring in its first
four games divided among nine
Five goals and four assists
places MacFarland in a first-place
tie, at nine points, with Rendall
who has garnered two goals and
seven assists. Duriningan is third
with six points on two goals and
four assists.
Defensively, goalie Lorne Howes
has been spectacular in turning
away over 30 shots per game, while
permitting an average of only
2.25 goals.

Lions Need
Says Coach
DETROIT (P) -- Coach Buddy
Parker says his Detroit Lions, who
are shooting at a third consecu-
tive National Football League
crown, have "got to come back
next Sunday or throw in the
flag on the championship game."
The Lions, who already had
copped their third straight west-
ern division title, lost a meaning-
less 28-24 decision to the Chicago
Bears Sunday in what Detroit
sportswriters described as one of
their worst games in three years.
Sunday's game at Cleveland will
be the "most meaningless" in pro-
fessional football history. The
game's outcome will make no dif-
ference whatever in division
standings. The Browns wrapped
up the eastern division crown
Sunday by thumping Pittsburgh,
The Lions and the Browns meet
in the game that countsa week
from Sunday-the playoff for the
NFL championship.
Next Sunday's game originally
was scheduled for Oct. 3 at Cleve-
land, but was postponed because
it conflicted with the World Ser-
ies there. Coach Paul Brown re-
fused to move it to Detroit, so it
was re-scheduled for Dec. 19.
But Parker isn't so sure the
game is meaningless for his Lions.
He says they played "terrible foot-
ball" for three quarters against
the Bears, and adds:
"We haven't been right the last
three games. We have got to get
out of this slump. We've got to
beat somebody.

The day after Christmas Coach
Paul Brown's Cleveland gridders
will get their third chance in as
many years to win the "world"
professional football title, and
once more they will have to de-
feat the Detroit Lions to do it.
Buddy Parker's well-balanced
Detroiters have downed the daunt-
less Browns two years running in
the title game, and will be shoot-
ing for their third flag in a row.
Browns Bounce Back
Earlier this season the Browns,
fighting to regain a first-division
slot in the Eastern Division of the
I-M Champs
Gomberg trounced Adams,
4-0, last night to win the resi-
dence hall volleyball champion-
The Latvians garnered a 4-2
victory over the Hawaiians to
win the independent league
National Football League, weren't
given a chance to repeat their
role of the past two years. But
suddenly coagulation led to an
eight game winning streak, and
the Browns are there again.
A mix-up early in the campaign'
will send the two teams against
each other two weekends in a
row. No one paid much attention
when the game was rescheduled
for Dec. 19, as the Browns were
counted out at the time. But now
Detroit fans are very unhappy.

Browns Cop Eastern Division Crown

Bothagames will be played in
The Dec. 19 contest will serve
as a "scouting" game for the two
champs in preparation for the
grand finale Dec. 26.
Lions Dominate Series
Percentage-wise, the Lions have
a big edge on the Clevelanders, in
winning the world title from
Cleveland the ,past two years, the
Lions have amassed 34 points to
the Brown's 23.
This is no indication, however,
of the outcome of the coming bat-
tles. The Browns are riding the
crest of their winning streak, while
the Lions have been tied and de-
feated in their last two games. Tle
Cleveland eleven is starved for a
NFL title, having won its last
crown in 1950Ain a playoff tilt
with the Los Angeles Rams,
But if the old "Indian sign"
superstition has any credence,
Parker's Lions should repeat as
world champions.
Cleveland Downs Pitt
In taking their last scalp of the
eight, the Browns tromped Pitts-
burgh by a 42-7 margin Sunday.
It was their ninth pro football
crown. They won four while still
playing in the old All-America
Cleveland won the Steeler game
with sharp defensive play. The
Browns jumped on two Steeler
fumbles and snatched a Pitt pass
to score 21 points within six min-
utes of the second period.
At the same time, the Lions
were taking a 28-24 beating at the
capable hands of the Chicago

Bears. A last quarter rally by De-
troit wasn't enough to pass the
Bears. Zeke Bratkowski led the
Chicagoans to the win by flip-
ping two touchdown passes to end
Jim Dooley. Consequently Chicago
took second place in the Western

Twenty Michigan Swimmers
To Practice in Florida Forum

215 East Liberty
NO 3-1319



<. -

Approximately 20 M i c h i g a n'
swimmers will spend their Christ-
mas vacation at Ft. Lauderdale,
Fla., when they attend the commu-
nity sponsored "Swim Forum."
An annual event, the "busman's
holiday" for tank stars will bring
together nationally known swim-
mers, who will work out under the
watchful eyes of some of the top
college coaches in the nation.
} Plan Stiff Workouts
In addition to the social events
planned for the visiting natators by
the city of Ft. Lauderdale, the
Michigan representatives plan to
swim several miles each day as
Coaches Gus Stager and Bruce
Harlan begin to increase the tem-
po of the workouts for their

charges in preparation for the ap-
proaching Big Ten season.
Both Michigan mentors will have
a hand in the swimming clinics
which are also a part of the two-
week Forum. Harlan, the 1948
Olympic diving champion, will hold
a diving clinic, while Stager, a na-
tionally known freestyler in the
late 1940's, will discuss the stroke
with the swimmers who attend. In
contrast to previous years, many
of Michigan's top varsity natators
will make the trip to Florida this
year. Captain Bumpy Jones, and
Jack and Bert Wardrop will be
among the Wolverines who spend
Christmas in Florida. Last year
only six swimmers and Coach Matt
Mann attended the event from
