The Michigan basketball team,
part owner of first place in the
wild Western Conference race, will
meet three opponents before the
second semester begins on Feb-
ruary 7th.
Tomorrow, the Wolverines will
journey to East Lansing where a
sell-out - crowd will watch the
Maize and Blue tackle a rough
Michigan State five. On the last
day of January, after the exam-
ination period, Michigan will trav-
el to Evanston to engage the re-
vamped Northwestern cage squad.
Return February 5th
Coach Bill Perigo and his drib-
blers will then return to the
-friendly confines of Yost Field
House where Los, Angeles State
will be met on February 5th. And
two days later, on the first day of
the Spring semester, Illinois will
come to Ann Arbor.
The Spartans, sporting a new
coach in Forrest Anderson and two
of the top scorers in the Big Ten
in Julius McCoy and Al Ferrari,
will be out to stop Michigan's bid
for a third successive conference
Anderson, who soared to na-
tional prominence as he guided
the Bradley Braves into the finals
of the 1954 NCAA championships,
has installed the fast break at East
Lansing. In his system, the em-
phasis has been placed on quick,
yet balanced scoring thrusts which
1gives apposing defenses little time
to get set.
Ferrari and McCoy probably
make up the best forward com-
bination in the league. Both are
averaging better than 15 points a
game and are dangerous from any
position oft the court.
When Michigan arrives at
Northwestern it will be faced with
another powerful one-two scoring
punch. Frank Ehmannhand Hal
Grant, veteran stars, have aver-
aged 23.2 and 19.6 points respec-
tively, in games to date. Ehmann,
a lithe 6'3" 185 pounder, possesses
exceptional speed and quickness,
and is a brilliant ball handler.
No Information
Very little is known about Los
Angeles State. Whether the game
will be a "breather" or a diffi-
cult contest for the Michigan five
is difficult to say. The small Cali-
fornia school will, however, be the
lastmnon-conference foe that the
Maize and Blue meet this sea-
Bill Ridley will be the man to
watch when Illinois moves into the
field house. A guard, and only
5'9", he has been averaging 15.8

Detroit Whips
Boston Bruins
DETROIT (IP)--The Detroit Red
Wings, led by Bill Dineen, inched
still closer to first place as they
whipped the Boston Bruins last
night, 4-0, at Olympia Stadium.
The loss was Boston's first in
1955. The Bruins had gone through
seven games without a setback,
but their streak came to an abrupt
end when teh Red Wings put on
one of their flashiest shows of the

win and set up a Saturday night

Against these opponents, Mich-
igan will present a line-up in
which all five starters will be aver-
aging 10 points a game or better.
Tom Jorgenson leads the pack
but Don Eaddy is close behind.
Harvey Williams holds down the
third spot, Ron Kramer with a
10.8 average is fourth and Paul
Groffsky in in fifth place.

Has Chance
Of Passintg
LANSING, WA) -- A resolution
calling for establishment of a six-
man commission to control tele-
vising of home athletic events at
the University of Michigani and
Michigan State College was intro-
duced in the House yesterday.
Rep. John P. Fitzpatrick (D-De-
troit) sponsored the resolution.
The commission would be known
as the "Michigan Television Comn-
mission" and would be empow-
ered to accept bids for televising
home games at both institutions.
Under the proposal, the commils-
sion would not be under NCAA
Await Crisler's Support
"We think the resolution has a
good chance of passing if H. 0.
(Fritz) (Crisler (Michigan Athlet-
ic Director) is in favor of it," Fitz-
patrick said. "We understand he
would be ready to support the idea
Fitzpatrick said similar propo-
sals had been introduced previous-
ly but were defeated largely be-
cause of opposition from Crisler.
He said it was intended as a means
of sidestepping NCAA control of
home games at the two colleges.
Crisler was a leader in the re-
cent Big Ten threat to bolt thle
NCAA if the conference was not
given more, power to pick its, own
television schedule.

(Third and last of a series introduc-
ing the 1955 track team.)
Michigan's track squad is bol-
stered by the return of capable
field event men.
Junior Stielstra, a senior from
Ludington, Mich., will compete in
the hurdles along with the broad-
jump event. He has jumped 22' 11"
while a member of the varsity
squad. Tom Hendericks could star
in the broadjump and hurdles if
he evades his old injury jinx.
Hillberry in Pole Vault
John Hillberry, who in the pole
vault, placed in 'both of the Big
Ten meets (indoor and outdoor)
last year, should be Michigan's top
vaulter this season. Bob Appleman,
from Chicago, should also figure
in the points column for the Wol-
Canham has shifted Geoff Doo-
ley from the half-mile to the 2-
mile run, and the senior has been
running well in the distance event
so far. Last April he ran in the
Eastern Canadian Indoor Track
Possible additions to this nu-
cleus are Dan 'alters, a half-mil-
er, and miler Al Lubina, whom
Canham considers "the most im-
proved men on the squad."
Outstanding Newcomers
Other outstanding newcomers

are sophomores Larid Sloan, a 4401
and 880 threatandDick Flodin,
who has been impressive in the
quarter-mile. At the University of
Chicago meet last month Sloan
set a new mark for the 440-yard
run with a time of :50.3. He may,
however, be moved to the 880-
yard run to strengthen the 2-mile
relay team.
Sloan was a member of the
British Empire team his freshman
Com pete in East
Coach Don Canham is tak-
ing three Michigan trackmen
to Boston to compete tomor-

bus meet.
Pete Gray, stellar 880-yard
runner, will enter the 1000-yard
run. Laird Sloan wvill run in the
600-yard race, and Ellis Land-
strum, sensational freshman,
will enter as an independent in
the pole vault event.
year in the 440, and will travel to
tomorrow's Knights of Columbus
games in Boston.
Flodin, a sophomore from Chi-
cago, has already set a record ear-
ly in the track season. Over Christ-
mas vacation he ran a :22.6 220-
yard dash to break a University
of Chicago meet mark. In high

school Flodin specialized in the
440-yard run, where he was sec-
ond in the Illinois state champion-
ships. Also running the 440 will be
Bob Rudisell, junior from Detroit,
who has run the distance before
in :50.0.
Still More Ret rnees
"It's possible," concludes Can-
ham, "that other returnees may
develop and fit into the picture.
This is one of the largest squads
we've had, and lots of things
could happen."
When asked to give an overall
picture of the cinder squad's
chances of a good year Canham
answered, "We could be as strong
as last year but it is a lot to ask.
"With so many young, inexperi-
-enced boys we may be a year away
from a real team. If two or three
men develop as I hope they will
and we avoid injuries, we could
be pretty strong by the middle of
the season, but the Big Ten is
tougher than ever this year."
