Michigan's ice squad, tied for
fourth Place in the Western In-
tercollegiate Hockey League, vis-
its East Lansing tonight at 8:00
p.m. in an effort to continue a 27-
year mastery o v e r Michigan
State's Spartans.
The battle tonight with the sec-
ond place Spartans will count one
point in the WIHL standings and
will be the first of four games be-
tween the teams this season. To-
morrow night the teams will meet
again here at the Coliseum at
8:00 p.m.
Two weekend victories are vital
for the Wolverines if they expect
to move toward their usual posi-
tion high in the WIHL.
Eighteen Veterans
Eighteen returning lettermen
have made the Spartanssheavy
favorites to score their first vic-
tory over the Wolverines since
1927. Despite a history of being
unbeaten in 21 consecutive games
with the Spartans, the 11-man,
relatively inexperienced Michigan
Attention all senior and jun-
ior athletic managers: The
Michigan Undergraduate Ath-
letic Managers' council will
have a meeting Sunday, Janu-
ary 9, at 2 p.m. in the Athletic
Administration Building. The
Ensian picture will be taken at
2:00.
-Dick Petrie, Chairman
squad will find an extremely dif-
ficult foe in Michigan State.
Leading the Spartans' attack
will be Co-Captain Weldie Olson
and Jim Ward, sharing the cen-

ter position, and forward Jack
Mayes. Together theyrhave scored
19 goals and assisted on 23 oth-
ers in their first eleven games.
Michigan State also f i n d s
strength in the return of goalie
Ed Schiller, who was chosen his
team's most valuable player last
year. Schiller will be remembered
as the player instrumental in hold-
ing Michigan to a scoreless tie in
one of the four meetings between
the schools in 1954.
Raz Ineligible
One severe blow has been dealt
Coach Amo Bessone's hopes of
ending the Wolverine jinx. High-
scoring wingman Steve Raz has
been declared ineligible for further
competition this year because of
a scholastic deficiency in the just-
completed fall term. Eugene Gra-
zia has been chosen to replace
Raz, who had accounted for 15
Points this season.
Coach Vic Heyliger has been
concentrating his attention on of-
fense during this week's practices
of the Wolverines. Michigan was
able to tally only eight goals in
its recent four-game jaunt through
Colorado. In winning only one of
the games with Colorado College
and Denver University, the Wol-
verines displayed adequate de-
fense in the rarefied air, but fell
far short on offense.
Schiller Returns

By DON LINDMAN
Is Tom Whiteleather still with
Ohio State's Big Ten swimming
titlists?
Michigan's hopes for annexing
the conference crown this year
may hinge on the answer to this
question as the Wolverines pre-
pare for the season opener against
Iowa State next Monday after-
noon.
Reports from reliable sources
indicate that the Buckeye All-
American may be missing from
Coach Mike Peppe's squad, al-
though no official information has
been received from Columbus. Ac-
cording to the available informa-

tion, Whiteleather had lost inter-
est in swimming earlier in the year
and now has dropped out of school.
Break for Maize and Blue
Should the rumors prove true,
it would be a big break for the
Maize-and-Blue squad of Coaches
Gus Stager and Bruce Harlan.
Whiteleather was being counted
on heavily in the sprints, and his
loss leaves Peppe without a test-
ed replacement for graduated star
Dick Cleveland.
An All-American in both free-
style sprints and the freestyle re-
lay, the Buckeye senior placed
fourth in both sprints in the 1954
Big Ten championships and was
touted as one of the top contend-
ers for national honors this year.
Michigan's swimming fortunes
seem to be rising regardless of the
status of Whiteleather, since sev-
eral Wolverine natators have been
performing unexpectedly well late-
ly. Even a newly instituted rule
governing the breastroke kick
seems to favor the Maize-and-Blue
squad,

The new rule legalizing the
"dolphin" kick in the breastroke
may prove to be the biggest boost
of all to Wolverine hopes. Jack
and Bert Wardrop have used the
kick in European races and
should have a big advantage in
experience on the American tank-
ers who have to learn the new
kick this year.
Under the tutilage of Harlan,
divers Jim Walters and Charlie
Bates are improving rapidly and
are expected to break into the
monopoly of conference honors
which Peppe's diving crew has
dominated. for years.
Sophomores John Thurlow and
Harrison Wehner may also pro-
vide an unexpected boost to Wol-
verine title aspirations by provid-
ing needed depth in the breast-
stroke and freestyle events. Thur-
low is rapidly developing into an
excellent orthodox breaststroker,
while the hard-working Wehner
has been turning in exceptionally
good times in the distance free-
style events.

The eastern schools expressed
their feelings when the athletic
director of Pittsburgh, Tom Ham-
ilton, said, "We're dealing with
economics in college athletics. It's
a matter of national concern and
can't be divided into regions."
Here in Ann Arbor Wolverine
swimming coach Gus Stager indi-
cated that withdrawal of the Big
Ten from the NCAA would further
limit competition for his squads.
He also said that in the new var-
sity swimming pool four television
outlets are being installed and this

by not playing member schools,
they would find numerous com-
petitors in Canadian teams and in'
the Big Ten.
The television question may
come up on the floor of the con-

vention today,
sessions were
peaceful. This
probably bring

although today's
expected to be
discussion would
heated arguments.

SLASHED!

(First in a series of articles intro-
ducing the 1955 trace squad.)
By STEVE HEILPERN
and CORKY SMITH
It isn't often that a track coach
can lose six Conference champions
by graduation and still field a
strong team.
Michigan track mentor Don

Canham admits that, "at present,
we're just a shadow of last year's
team," but adds that the Wolver-
ines should finish in the top quar-
tet of Big Ten squads.
Gone from the scene are Fritz
Nilsson, Roy Pella, John Ross,
George Lynch, Jack Carroll and

Milt Mead, all Conference title
holders at one time or another.
Also lost by graduation are such
stalwarts as Roger Maugh, Roy
Christiansen, Bill Michaels and
others.
15 Sophomores
Canham, however, has a fine
array of sophomores to augment
his list of returning lettermen, Al-
though virtually untested in com-
petition thus far, many of the
newcomers have shown great pro-
mise in practice. In fact, 15 sopho-
mores, more than half the team,
will be on the competing squad.
How rapidly they develop will de-
termine the team's success.
Hobart Jones, who attended the
University of Nebraska before en-
tering the service, will be a strong
man In the mile and 880-events.
He participated on the Air Force
All-Star team along with Mal
Whitfield, Olympic Gamesveter-
an.
In the shot put event, weakened
by the departure of Nilsson, sopho-
more Dave Owen has given Can-
ham hope for the future.Can-
ham has called him "one of the
best freshman shotputters we've
had." In the discus there is Ken
Bottoms, who has also looked very
good thus far.
Mansfield in 2-Mile Run
Bob Mansfield, whose home is
in Farmington, Mich., is a state
high school mile champ. A sopho-

more, Canham is grooming him for
the 2-mile run.
A onetime 100-yard dash state
champion is John Johnson, a
sophomore from Kalamazoo, Mich.
Johnson is a good sprinter and
should give John Vallortigara
some competition in this depart-
ment.Another state champion is
Alonzo Harris, sophomore from
Pontiac, Mich. In high school he
ran away with the 220 yard dash
title at the state meet last year.
He is also a broad jump prospect.
Outstater Jesse Blout should
lend strong support in the hurdle
events. Blout lives in Cleveland,
O., where he ran the 440 in high
school.
Tom Skimming, who topped the
13-foot mark as a freshman last
year,his being counted on heavily
in the pole vault event. Broad
jumper Roger Severson and high
jumper Stan Menese are also rated
excellent soph prospects, while
Ross McNab, running the quarter
mile, should contribute points in
the 440 and mile relay.
