Wolverines
Oppose Irish
In Gym Tilt
By BOB JONES
Michigan's gymnasts travel to
South Bend this afternoon to meet
the Irish of Notre Dame in their'
first dual meet of the season.
Coach Newt Loken is completely
in the dark as to Notre Dame's
potentialities, but since the Wol-
verines downed Coach Ray Run-
ckle's Irish last year, -55-41, he is
hoping things won't be too tough.
The Michigan squad has been im-
proving steadily since the early
season intrasquad meets.
Four Sophomores Debut
The meet will be the acid test
for Loken's four sophomores, Nick
Wiese, Wayne Warren, Bob Arm-
strong and Ron Schwartz. Wiese
will get the toughest workout of
the lot, as -be ' entered in five of
six events.
Captain Bill Winkler is a pret-
ty sure win in the trampoline
event, which he captured in last
year's Notre Dame meet. He is
also entered in the tumbling, in
which he placed second last year.
A non-conference contest, the
r meet should reveal whether Lo-
ken's team, composed mostly of
sophomores and juniors, has the
stuff to offer a challenge for the
Big Ten title. If the sophomore
can come through, things will look
good for the Wolverines.
The team is in good shape, in-
jury-wise; Chico San Antonio has
recovered completely from a wrist
injury which bothered him earlier
in the season. Wiese, who suffered
a sprained thumb a few weeks ago,
is also back in good shape.

Eaddy Chosen To Guard OSU's Freeman,
Leading Basketball Point-Getter in Nation

Wrestling Squad Faces
Rugged Purdue Matmen

By STEVE HEILPERN
All eyes will be on Ohio State's
Robin Freeman tonight as he
leads the Buckeye hoopsters
against Michigan at Yost Field
House.
The contest, Michigan's Confer-
ence home opener, will get under
way at 8 p.m.
Leads Nation
Freeman, a junior guard who
stands an inch under six feet tall,
is leading the nation with a phe-
nomenal 34.6 average and has
scored on better than 50 per cent
of his shots. He scorched the nets
for 39 points Monday night to lead
OSU to an 83-76 win over Michi-
gan State in its first Big Ten game.
Michigan coach Bill Perigo has
hinted that he will give Don Ead-
dy the task of trying to stop Free-
man. Eaddy, always an outstand-
ing defensive player, drew a simi-
lar assignmentlast year when he
was called on to limit the effect-
iveness of Indiana's fabulous Bob
Leonard. Eaddy held the Hoosier
All-American to five field goals in
22 tries.
Perigo, while admitting that
Michigan's chances may hinge on
to what extent Freeman can be
stopped, is wary of the fact that
the Buckeyes possess other ball-
players who have been outstanding
this season, but who have failed
to receive much publicity because
of Freeman's national prominence.
Other Starters
At the forwards are John Mil-
ler, 6' 4", and Don Kelley, 6' 3",
who can rebound well and score in
double figures. Center Charley
Ropes, 6' 5", is rated one of the
Conference's better rebounders,
while Freeman's partner at guard
is Charley Ellis, a small, driving

playmaker who adds spark to the
team.
The Ohioans flew in yesterday
afternoon and took a light work-
out at the Field House at 5 p.m.
'Whey boast a seasonal record of
six-two, including the win over
MSC.
Barron Missing
The Wolverines, with a five-
three overall and one lost confer-

ence mark, will be without the
services of star guard Jim Barron,
who twisted his knee in Monday
night's Indiana contest. Barron
has a partially torn ligament in
his left knee and is in University
Hospital. Further examination will
tell whether a cartilage is torn, in
which case an operation would be
necessary.
If no operation is needed it will
still be difficult to tell when the
high-scoring junior would be back,
but it is a probability that he will
miss the remainder of the season
ii. he goes under the knife.
Ron Kramer, at forward, Harvey
Williams, at center, and Don Ead-
dy, at guard are the only definite
starters for tonight. Captain Paul
Groffsky, who is below physical
par, may start at the other for-
ward slot. If Groffsky starts, Tom
Jorgenson will move to a guard po-
sition. If sophomore guard Jim
Shearon gets the nod from Perigo,
Jorgenson will be at his customary
post up front.
Tonight marks the Big Ten's
first full program, as Purdue hosts
Northwestern, Indiana visits Illi-
nois, Iowa plays host to Minneso-
ta, and Wisconsin is at Michigan
State.
Northwestern, Indiana, OSU
and Iowa have 1-0 records and are
tied for first place.

By JACK HORWITZ
The 1955 debut of the Wolver-
ine wrestling squad will most like-
ly be the toughest match of the
season for the grapplers as they
open the Western Conference sea-
son against Purdue at Lafayette,
Indiana, tonight.
A seasoned Boilermaker team
will be the most difficult obstacle
for the Wolverines as they seek
revenge for the upset handed them
by Purdue last year.
1954 Conference Champs
Coach Claude Reeck's squad,
which captured the Big Ten cham-
pionship in 1954, will have several
returning lettermen including Ah-
med Simole, 177 pound champion
of the Big Ten, and a member of
the 1952 Turkish Olympic squad.

until Schiller's surprise play set up
the second goal.
Just a little over a minute later,
at 9:03 of the second period, Schil-
ler drilled a beautiful screen shot
into the net to put the Wolverines*
into a three-goal lead. Jay Goold
'r followed seconds later with the
fourth score of the game.
esme Scoring in Third Period
MacFarland did most of the
work In increasing the advantage
during the third stanza. Hardly
had the fans returned to their
places when the Michigan center
brought them to their feet again
after 14 seconds had elapsed as he
skated in all alone to push in his
second goal of the evening.
The hat trick was accomplished
as the game was less than three
minutes away from completion
when MacFarland used a pass
from Yves Hebert to befuddle
goalie Schiller for the seventh
time of the evening.
Earlier, at 9:39, Dunnigan had
contributed the sixth goal with an
assist from defenseman, Bob Pitts.
Teams Even on Shots
The teams were nearly even in
their shots on goal, the Wolverines
leading, 40-36. However, the dif-
ference rested in the fact that the
superb Howes was able to deflect
every Spartan scoring attempt.

play was especially gratifying in
the victory which gave the Wol-
verines an all-important point in
their battle to move up in the
Western Intercollegiate Hockey
League. In their four games pre-
vious to last night's tilt, the Wol-
verines had been able to average
only two goals per game.

Troy Stopped
By Patterson
NEW YORK M-)-Speedy Floyd
Patterson, who celebrated his 20th
birthday Tuesday, battered Willie
Troy with his :quick, destructive
hands last night to win a techni-
cal knockout at the end of the
fifth round at Madison Square
Garden. Patterson weighed 166,
Troy 162.
Although Troy, the No. 6 mid-
dle-weight, never was on the floor,
he was a sorry sight as he sat in
his corner after the fifth. He had
an egg-sized lump over his right
eye and his left eye was completely
closed.
Al Weill, manager of Troy, could
be seen motioning it was over even
before Dr. Vincent Nardiello of
the New York State Athletic Com-
mission stopped the uneven con-
test.
Patterson, the sensational
Brooklyn boxer who won a title
at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki
and then returned home to zoom
into the No. 4 spot among light
heavyweights, dominated the ac-
tion.
Despite the contracts that call-
ed for Patterson to make 165
pounds, give or take a pound, he
was much too quick and strong for
the Washington, D.C., scrapper
who has been stopped in all three
of his losing bouts.,

Night Editor

NEW YORK (oP)-The NCAA
convention wrote out another
"blank check" recommendation
for a 1955 football television pro-
gram yesterday in spite of a boy-
cott threat from the Big Ten
Conference.
After a long hassle over the de-
tails, the delegates adopted the
resolution offered by the outgo-
ing committee, with an amend-
ment showing the result of an
informal preferential vote taken
yesterday.
The resolution says, in effect,
merely that there shall be a na-
tional TV program for 1955, its
format to be decided by a new
committee after appropriate in-
formation has been secured.
No Directions to Committee
And in spite of a vigorous ef-'
fort on the part of Notre Dame's
delegate, Father Edmund Joyce,
to bring about an open discus-
sion of TV problems, there was no
directive to the new committee to
consider any one proposed plan.
The result left a wide open
question on what sort of program
the committee will formulate and
whether it will be acceptable to
the rebellious Big Ten and Pacific
Coast conferences.
Those two have come out strong-
ly in favor of regional television
programs, under national control,
and only Thursday the Big Ten
threatened to abstain from the
1955 program if a satisfactory plan
is not devised.
Bolt Didn't Occur
But the threatened bolt didn't
take place yesterday, nor was it
even mentioned in the convention
as the debate took off in a brand
new direction. The big subject
for argument was whether the
results of a confidential straw bal-
lot taken at Thursday's round
table meeting should be disclosed.
It remained secret, although the
delegates were asked to show
their preference through a stand-
ing vote taken on the floor. This
vote indicated an overwhelming
preponderance of opinion in fav-
or of strong national controls as
opposed to regional plans.
The count was 81 votes for adop-
tion of the 1954 plan, 84 for the
looser version of national con-
trols proposed by the Eastern Col-
lege Athletic Conference, 37 for
regional television, 4 for unre-
stricted TV and 1 for the so-called
"one rule" plan.
Since this was taken under an
amendment to the original TV
NOW is the time to
sell those textbooks
you no longer need.
Take them to FOL-

resolution, the results presumably
will be given to the new commit-
tee for guidance. But there was no
indication that it will be consid-
ered binding-or even that the
count was accurate. One observer
protested that he had seen some
delegates voting for two proposals.
Crisler Comments on Vote
H. O. "Fritz" Crisler, who stated
the Big Ten's side in the round
table session, said only that the
conference won't do anything un-
til the new 1955 plan is drawn up.
"The Big Ten has stated its po-
sition," he said. "We are open to
any plan as long as it is not last
year's plan."
On the other side, EDAC Com-
missioner Asa 'Bushnell, as im-
portant figure in previous TV
planning, commented:
"I think the matter will be set-
tled and we will have a 1955 tele-
vision program that will be bene-
ficial to all."

By PHIL DOUGLIS
Another bombshell burst upon
Michigan's already shattered ho-
ckey team late yesterday when
athletic department officials de-
clared star rookie forward Tom
Rendall ineligible for the rest of
the season.
The loss of Rendall is due to a
deficiency in a Math course at
the University of Manitoba two
years ago, which was apparently
overlooked when he transfered to
Michigan last year.
Discovered Early in Week
Earlier this week. the defici-
ency was discovered when Michi-
gan sent in his eligibility creden-
tials to the Big Ten office. A wire
received late yesterday from the
University of Manitoba confirm-
ed the fact, and as a result of a
Big Ten ruling, Rendall must sit
on the bench for two years.
One of these years, however has
been made up, as he did not play
for the Wolverines last season.
Therefore Rendall must only sit
out the remainder of this season.
Crippling Blow to Hopes
The announcement came as the
Wolverines prepared to leave for
last nights' encounter with Michi-
gan State at East Lansing. It ob-
viously was a crippling blow to
what ever chances the Michigan
team had left for a high finish in
the Western Intercollegiate Hock-
ey League.
Rendall, undoubtedly the bright-

est gem in an unusually drab
hockey picture, was leading the
Wolverines in scoring at the time
of his suspension.
Only Nine Men Remain
It was a bitter blow for Coach

en years. His squad is now down
to nine men not counting goalies.
Heyliger now must place cap-
tain Bill MacFarland in a line
with Yves Hebert and Neil Bu-
chanan, who was again moved up

The Boilermakers also feature
two men who hold titles under
their belts. But "Blood" Weick,
former national champion, took
the 147 pound Big Ten title in one
of the most unusual matches ever
recorded in the Western Confer-
ence record books last season.
Weick defeated Michigan's Don
Haney, after wrestling to a 1-1
tie, on a judges decision.
Michigan Coach Cliff Keen's
squad will be much stronger than
last year, especially in the lower
weights. Captain Andy Kaul, 137
pound champion of the Western
Conference last year, and only
twice defeated, in his collegiate
career, will be seeking to annex
the 147 pound crown.
Harvey Seeks Revenge
One of the most promising
wrestlers to star on the, Michi-
gan squad, Haney will be looking
forward to a return match with
Weick after the loss on a judge's
decision. Weick will probably move
up to the 147 class. Haney, who
conquered Kaul in an overweight
match as the Maize and Blue
won the Wilkes College tourna-
ment, has shown great promite as
a champion of the future.
Barring further injuries, Mich-
igan's squad will be up to almost
full effectiveness. Only John Mc-
Mahon, 167 pound junior is defi-
nitely out for this week-end with
an injury.
Most of the grapplers have mov-
ede up one class from last year's
competition. Kaul will be entered
in the 147 pound class and Haney
in the 157 class. Mike Rodriquez
has moved from the 157 to the
167 pound division.
Hirt in 130-Pound Class
In the lower weights, Frank
Hirt, fourth place finisher in the
Big Ten last season, will still be
in the 130 pound weight class,
along with Charley Anderson, an-
other promising junior.
Sophomore Dan Deppe will han-
dle the 123 pound chores while
Max Pearson will take over for
Kaul in the 137 pound class. In
the heavier classes, Tom Krause
will fill in for McMahon in the
177 pound group and either Paul
Melgaard or Bill Kolesar will
wrestle in the unlimited division.
The Purdue-Michigan match
will give the Wolverines a start
on the road to another possible
championship.
Five Advance
I n Badminton
Five more competitors last night
advanced in the all-campus intra-
mural badminton tournament at
the Intramural Building.
Three of the matches were play-
ed. These found Geert Keilstrop
riowning Mike Freeman, 15-0, 15
3; Hla Win besting Alan Lifshay,
15-8, 15-4; and Dick Brown beat-
ing Bill Parks, 15-1, 15-2.
In forfeits, Glenn Greenwood
eliminated Harry Carney, while
Norm Fairmer dropped Steve
Shane.

TOMMY RENDALL-A math deficiency has caused the star
forward to be declared ineligible for the remainder of the
season.

Vic Heyliger, whose team is now
a pitiful shadow of the former
powerhouses that have dominated
collegiate hockey for the last sev-

from the back line. On the other
line will be Jerry Karrinka, Dick
Dunnigan, and Jay Goold.
The Wolverines only defense-
man are now Bob Schiller, Bernie
Hanna, and Bob Pitts, and the
only spare forward is rookie Bad-
en Cosby, who is untested in var-
sity play.
According to Heyliger,.the pres-
ence of Rendall on the squad dur-
ing the first four league games
was not illegal, as the deficiency
was not known at that time, and
thus no penalty will be exacted
on the Wolverines.

By SOL ROSEN
Burwell 'Bumpy" Jones, Captain
of the 1955 Michigan swimming
squad has never lost the winning
touch that he developed as a
youth.
The 6' 190 pound native of De-
troit won his first tank title before
reaching high school, and has
been winning swimming events
ever since.
Holds Many Records
Jones' name can be found all
over the Michigan, Big Ten, NCAA,
and AAU swimming record books.
Besides winning. numerous Big
Ten and NCAA titles, the three
t i m e swimming All - American,

holds the American and Collegiate
record in the 150 yard individual
medlay, which he set last March
with a sizzling time of 1:29.5.
He had the distinction of hold-
ing down one leg oi the victorious
American 200 yard relay team in
the 1952 Olympic Games which
were held at Helsinki Finland, and
also first place in the 150 yard
medlay in the past three NCAA
meets.
Great Spirit
Jones' fighting spirit and deter-
mination can best be realized by
his work over the past summer. He
had lost the AAU 200 yard breast

stroke title because he was unable
to master the conventional breast
stroke, and had used the butter-
fly-breast stroke instead.
The popular senior who hopes
to enter medical school next fall,
spent his entire summer under the
tutaIage of the swimming of the
University of Hawaii, and when he
felt that he had become profici-
ent enough in this stroke, he en-
tered the AAU 400 yard individual
medlay.
The muscular tank captain not
only won the race, but set a new
American record in the event of
4:29.
