Mays Fights
With Gomez
In BallPark
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico ()-
The Willy Mays-Ruben Gomez in-
cident was passed off yesterday by
Pedro Zorrilla, president of the
Santurce team of the Puerto Ri-
can League, as "one of those in-
cidents arising every day on every
club because of horseplay among
ball players."
A report Wednesday said the
two New York Giants stars, play-
ing with Santurce, got into a fist
fight during batting practice.
Mays, voted the National League's
most valuable player last season,
is a centerfielder. Gomez is a
pitcher.
Zorilla Tells Story
Zorrilla said he had been pres-
ent at the practice session Tues-
day in which Mays and Gomez
scuffled and saw all that hap-
pened.
"This is the whole story," said
Zorrilla. "Gomez started kidding
Roberto Clemente, Pittsburgh
rookie, his teammate, who was
having his swings. Gomez said
he wanted to get in a couple of
swings but batting practice pitch-
er Milton Ralat said Clemente
wasn't through yet.
"Gomez, still kidding sat on
home plate. Mays was behind the
cage, watching the horseplay, and
stepped out to ask Ralat to pitch
to him while the other two decided
their argument.
"Ralat refused, fearing he might
hit either of the other two. Final-
ly, Ralat threw some slow ones to
Mays. He hit one directly at Ralat,
knocking off his glove. Ralat got
mad and said something like,
"What are you trying to do, kill
me?'
"That led to arguing between
Ralat and Mays and finally got to
blows.

By PHIL DOUGLIS
Michigan and Minnesota, the
fallen giants of the Western Inter-
collegiate Hockey League, clash at
the Coliseum tonight at 8:00 p.m.
in the opener of what could well
be the most explosive series of
the season.
It should decide once and for
all which of the two will go on to
make a bid for an NCAA berth,
for both squads hang delicatelyon
the precipice of elimination from
the WIHL race.
The once haughty Gophers of
Johnny Mariucci must sweep this
series or be automatically remov-
ed from the contending list. The
thinly manned Wolverines must
win both games to keep alive the
very, very faint hopes of that
NCAA Colorado trip next March.
Gophers Slump
The Gophers are off to their
worst start in recent years. They
have already lost both ends of
their series with Colorado Col-
lege and North Dakota. They won
one and tied one with Denver.
Thus they rest near the bottom
of the WIHL pile with a very poor
1-4-1 mark. Another loss or two
to Michigan would mean only
disaster.
Michigan meanwhile is in the
midst of a come-back after a hor-
rible start out west. Last week, the

tic. "Our boys are awful tired" said
the genial coach. "It will take
some hockey to beat those Go-
phers."
The Wolverines still have a po-
tent scorer in Bill MacFarland
who is currently running 12th in
the league scoring race with 17
points. They also have the league's
top goalie, Lorne Howes who has
a sparkling 2.8 average for 10
games, and probably the WIIIL's
most aggressive defenseman in
Bob Schiller, whose return to ac-
tion gave Michigan the wins over
MSC. After these, the list quickly
thins, and it will take more than
ordinary hockey to knock the Go-
phers off twice.
Mayasich and Co.
Mariucci still has such key men
as the second highest scorer in
the league Johnny Mayasich, the
fleet George Jetty, fifth in league
scoring, rugged defenseman Ken
Yackel, and stellar goalie Jim
Mattson. Other veterans include
Dick Meredith, Jack Petroske,
Bruce Shutte, and Fred Pulicic-
chio.
Following the Minnesota inva-
sion; and the examination period,
the Wolverines will fly to Hough-
ton on Feb. 4 to take on the im-
proved Huskies of Michigan Tech
in a two game series.
Tech has only played one se-
ries, splitting with Michigan State,
thus proving themselves at least
as good as the Spartans, if not
better. More about the potency of
the Huskie attack will become
known this weekend when final
returns are in on their two game
set-to with North Dakota at Grand
Forks.

... Gopher goal getter
11 man aggregation of Vic Heyli-
ger showed surprising strength in
whipping favored Michigan State
twice. This weekend will be the
acid test.
If Heyliger can steer his squad
past this desparate Gopher band,
Michigan can be definitely counted
on as a challenger.
Minnesota Favored
Despite their poor record, Min-
nesota will go into this series as
the favorite. With an 18 man deep
team, Mariucci figures his squad
is due to explode. "We played our
best game of the year in last Sat-
urday's 5-3 loss to North Dakota"
he said. "I know that one of these
days we're going to combine three
good periods of hockey with some
help from Lady Luck and give
someone a real beating."
Heyliger meanwhile is pessimis-

By LEW HAMBURGER
Michigan's powerful swimming
team faces an unknown quantity
in its three-day swing through the
east and south between semesters.
Coaches Gus Stager and Bruce
Harlan know relatively little or
nothing about Army, North Caro-
lina, and North Carolina State's
potential strength. The Wolver-
ines meet the three teams in that
order on February first, second
and third.
"We have a little information
about North Carolina, but the
other schools remain question
marks. North Carolina State is
the outdoor champion," said Sta-
ger.
Fagden Leads State
State is lead by Dick Fgden, who
paced their outdoor AAU victory
this summer. Fadgen won both
breaststroke events in the meet,
and was chosen to represent the
United States in Japan a week
later on the basis of that per-
formance.
State is also last year's Atlantic
Coast Conference champions. In
that meet they handed North
Carolina its first defeat in 15 years
by a southern team.
Then, a week later, at the East-
ern Intercollegiate championships,
both State and North Caroli..
placed well. Tommy Dunlap, of
N.C. State, and Warren Heeman
of North Carolina, finished two-
three in the backstroke behind
Army's Pete Witteried.
So Michigan's backstrokers face
a rugged trip. Bert Wardrop and
Jim Kruthers, who handled the
backstroke chores against Iowa
State in the opener are likely
candidates to face the three east-
ern teams.

Bob Mattson of State placed
second in the Eastern Intercol-
legiates a year ago in the individ-
ual medley and Jack Ruppenthal,
also of State, placed fifth in the
440 yard freestyle.
North Carolina Sophs Strong
North Carolina has gained con-
siderable strength from last year's
freshman team. Graduated to var-
sity level are Charley Krepp, back-
stroker-freestyler, and Phil Drake,
breaststroker.
In the National AAU champion-
ships this summer Drake placed
fourth behind Fadgen in the
breaststroke.
In the same meet Krepp, Drake,
and Dick Baker combined to break
the conference medley relay rec-
ord with a fine 2:54.5 effort. +
The three teams, however, do
not appear to be too much of a
threat to the Wolverines' record.

Michigan is strong in every event,
and the big problem at the mo-
ment appears to be a lack of
sprinters to back up Ron Gora.
Gora Wins By Touch
In the Iowa State meet Gora
just touched out Jim McKevitt,
but has done better times andVis
capable of going all the way un-
defeated this season.
In the breaststroke events Sta-
ger can call on Mike Delaney and
Jim Thurlow. If necessary Bumpy
Jones or either of the Wardrop
twins could be called upon to face
Fadgen.
The middle distance events are
well taken care of by Jack Ward-
rop, and a number of lesses lights
on the Michigan roster. John
O'Reilly, who shows signs of im-
provement, and sophomores Tom
Prunk and Harrison Wehner can
fill the 220 and 440 positions.
