Track Squad
To Run First
Meet Tonight
Michigan's 1954-55 track season
opens tonight at 7:00 when Coach
Don Canham's cindermen compete
in the annual intrasquad track
meet in Yost Fieldhouse.
This year, as in the past, the 70-
man squad, including freshmen,
will be divided into two sections.
The freshmen and sophomores will
run against the juniors and sen-
iors. Last winter the freshmen and
sophs took the meet, 84-73, for the
first time since the meet was orig-
inated six years ago. Fifteen events
are on tap for tonight's meet.
Returning lettermen are expect-
ed to give a boost to the upperclass-
men's team. Captain John Moule,
experienced Wolverine distance
runner, is the favorite in the %
mile run. Pete Gray, 880 yard man,
is one of the strongest in his field.
Scruggs to Run
Clevelander Grant Scruggs, an-
other returning letterman, tops the
list of men entered in the 440 yard
run. Ron Wallingford, a consistent
winner in the two mile run last
spring, will provide a fast pace for
other runners in this event.
Jim Love and Tom Hendricks
will run in the hurdles races, while
Junior Stielstra and Hendricks will
compete in the broad jump. Other
field events will feature Mark
Booth in the high jump and Dave
Hilberry in the pole vault. Senior
John Vallortigara is entered in his
specialty, the 60 yard dash.
Some of he many promising
sophomores entered in the meet
are Dave Owen, shot put; Roger
Severse , broad jump and low hur-
dles; wesse Blount, high hurdles;
Dick Flodin, 440 yard run; and
Laird Sloan, in the 880.

Bumping Part of Game, Says Coach

"'Taint hockey if you don't
bump 'em."
The above quote is attributed to
Michigan's veteran hockey coach,
Vic Heyliger, and it goes a long
way in pointing outthat the rug-
ged winter sport is far from a safe
W h e n Michigan defenseman
Bob Schiller was carried off the ice
last Saturday night with a gap-
ing mouth wound, the crowd in
attendance gasped in horror at
the pool of blood that spread
across the ice-but that, too, is
all part of the game that is per-
haps the roughest in the world.
Cuts Most Frequent
Perhaps the most frequent in-
juries in hockey are cuts. Michi-
gan's trainer Karl Issacson, who
just completed a 36 stitch job on
Schiller, claims that cuts are a
universal part of the game and al-
most impossible to avoid.
The high frequency of cuts can
be traced to the many sharp ob-
jects wielded in the game. Razor-
sharp skates flash, sticks whip
about like swords, and the puck
itself has edges like a knife. When
all these elements are thrown to-
gether in swirling, lightning-fast
action, cuts are inevitable.
Stitches are second nature to
Issacson by now, for nearly every
game requires at least one or two.
Schiller's job, however, was a real
"toughie" according to the genial+
trainer, and it nearly gained him+
admittance to the American
Seamstresses' Union. "I lost count7
after 17," Issacson told the Daily,
"but I'd estimate I must have put+
in anywhere from 35 to 40."
Loss of Teeth
One of the most humorous and
lightly regarded injuries are lossE
of teeth. This, too, is a fairly com-
mon place occurence, for the mo-
lars are not built to come in con-
tact with uncompromising sticks
and skates. Several Michigan play-
ers miss teeth, including Captain
Bill MacFarland, who lost his in

Two Marks
Set by West
Quad Men
Two records fell and one was
tied as Adams House downed Hu-
ber, 33-24, in the intramural res-
idence halls championship swim-
ming meet last night at the Sports
Adams won four of the six
events, and was responsible for
breaking both of the records.
In the first event, the quartet of
Ron Doda, Frank Horton, Bill
Skellenger, and Gary Sprague
turned in a new mark in the 100-
yard relay for Adams, winning
with a clocking of :57.2 and break-
ing the old record of :48.1 set by
Williams House last year.
Freestyle Record
In the next-to-last event, Hor-
ton set a new record with an :11.9
performance in the 25-yard free-
style. The old mark, :12.2, was
set by Miller of Adams back in
Clark Bassett of Huber tied the
record for the 25-yard backstroke
with a :14.5 timing, now sharing
the mark with Woodbury of Wen-
ley, who established it in 1940.
In other events, Wayne Slaw-
son of Adams made his time of
:14.2 good for first in the 25-yard
breaststroke, Sprague won the 50-
yard freestyle in :26.4, and Hu-
ber, with Bassett, Art Hawley, and
Hal Shepard, took the final event,
the 75-yard medley relay, with a
:42.2 clocking.
All of the races were closely-
contested to the end. Horton's vic-
tory, coupled with Skellenger's
second place in the 25-yard free-
style clinched the meet for Ad-
ams, since it gave them eight
points and was the next-to-last

to one point, 75-74. From then on,
however, it was all Marquette.
The tilt, a hard fought affair,
was extremely close with neither
team enjoying much of a spread.
The score was knotted 11 times
and the lead changed hands on
seven different occasions. The first
sizeable lead was opened up by
Marquette late in the first half.
With four minutes to go, four
points by Schulz and two fouls by

Zone Defense
In an effort to recapture the
lead, Coach Bill Perigo installed
a zone defense after the intermis-
sion. But Marquette overloaded

Heading the list of outstanding
wrestlers returning to compete in
this year's meet is Hugh Peery, a
former Pitt star and three-time
NCAA champion. Peery, who cap-
tured the 123-pound crown in the
Wilkes meet last year, was a mem-
