Moule Runs Fastest College Mile Against Irish

WC indermen
Garner 11
Firs tPlaces
Gathering steam by winning a
pair of dual meets this year, Mich-
igan's trackmen are headed in
high geartoward the Big Ten In-
door Meet to be held in East Lan-
sing March 4-5.
Prior to last Saturday's 80-34
win over Notre Dame, the Wol-
verines set down highly-rated
Kansas, 80/-33%, and also made
a fine showing in the AAU meet
January 29.
'M' Swamps Irish
Wolverine athletes were out-
standing individually, snaring 11
first places in 12 events. Byron
Beams of Notre Dame, took the
shot put event with a heave of
52' %21
The greatest feat of the young
season was John Moule's, record
mile run. He broke the existing
field house mark of 4:10.7 and
meet record of 4:18.8, set in 1944.
Even more impressive was the fact
that he ran a 4:09.9 mile under no
pressure from the other runners.
Before the meet it was expected
that Bill Squires, Notre Dame
tracksters who had run a 4:10.7
mile the previous week, would pro-
vide stiff competition for the fast-
stepping Moule.
Moule. Wins Easily
The Wolverine track captain,
however, broke the tape well ahead
of Squires or any other entrants.
The lanky Canadian's outstand-
ing performance makes his the
fastest college mile of the year.
Ties Meet Mark
Sophomore John Johnson began
his varsity track career in fine
fashion Saturday, taking the 60-
yard dash and tying the meet
mark. He had a swift :06.3 time.
The mile relay team of Dave
Hessler, Dick Flodin, Goldberg
{ and Grant Scruggs whipped Notre
Dame's quartet with a 3:22.5 time.
Flodin lost ground to an Irish run-
ner but Goldberg was able to
make some of it up so that when
Scruggs tok the baton from him
for the final quarter mile, he had
a 10-yard lead which he held for
the rest of the race.
Hits New High
Bob Appleman, veteran Wolver-
ine pole vaulter, recorded his best
day against the Irish, winning the
event with a 13'-6" jump. Can-
ham was extremely pleased since
this was six inches better than he
had ever climbed before.
Gray Sets Record
Pete Gray's 880 time also es-
tablished a new meet record. He
stayed behind Al Schoenig, Notre
Dame's top half miler, for the
first two laps of the 4-lap race,
and then sprung into the lead,
winning the event in 1:54.5. The
former mark; 1:55.9, was set in
1944.

JOHN MOULE, PETE GRAY
. . . record breakers
Another record-breaking per-
formance was made by Michigan's
Mark Booth. His leap of 6' 6" in
the high jump enabled him to add
an inch to the old meet record of
6'-5" set by Leonas, N.D., Wes Al-
len, Mich., 1939; Don Canham,
Mich., 1940. Bernie Allard of the
Irish, capable of jumping 6' 6"
also, captured second place, fol-
lowed by Howie Liverance of Mich-
igan. Liverance's 6'-5" leap was
the best of his career.
Sets New Mark
Tom Hendricks turned in a :07.4
time in the 65-yard low hurdles
to snap thesmeet record and tie
the field house mark. A week be-
fore he also matched the field
house record against Kansas. The
former meet time was :07.5.
Freshman Wins
In an added event, the 600-yard
run, freshman Robin Varian out-
distanced three other Michigan
freshman, winning in a fast 1:15.0.
All in all, it was a field day at
the field house last Saturday, and
Canham is as pleased with the
team's performance as anyone.
Before going to Michigan State,
March 4, however, the Wolverines
battle Ohio State here Tuesday,
Feb. 22. This meet will determine
also, to a large extent, Michigan's
chances in the Conference meet,
for if the squad scores an impres-
sive victory over the Buckeyes, it
will have indicated its ability to
place high consistently, and the
first places are the big point-get-
ters in Big Ten meets.

No.1 Team
Turns Down
NIT Offer
Gopher Cagers Rank
Eighth in AP Balloting
By The Associated Press
The defense-minded San Fran-
cisco Dons, who turned down a
National Invitation Basketball
Tournament bid because they're
confident of going into the NCAA
Tournament, yesterday establish-
ed themselves more firmly as the
nation's No. 1 college basketball
team.
The Dons, who ousted Ken-
tucky from the lead last week,
topped the tenth weekly Associ-
ated Press ranking poll of sports
writers and broadcasters by a mar-
gin of nearly 300 points, although
they received fewer first-place
votes than they did a week ago.
Votes Scattered
An oddity in the balloting was
that first three teams scored high-
er than last week in the points,

"M' Ieemen
Need 5 of 6
For Finals
By PHIL DOUGLIS
By sweeping a crucial two-game
series from Michigan State this
past weekend, Michigan's rapidly
rising hockey squad has rocketed
to within shooting distance of a
coveted second place Western In-
tercollegiate Hockey League berth
and a trip to the NCAA ice finals1
next month at Colorado Springs.-
The swift-skating Wolverines
shot to within one and one-half
points of second place, and are
only a half point out of third as a
result of thrilling 7-4 and 4-3 wins
over the Spartans.
Other Contenders Split
The Wolverine cause was also
aided by league rivals over the
weekend, as Minnesota divided a
two-game set with Michigan Tech,
and North Dakota split with Colo-
rado College.
To gain the trip to the Broad-
moor once again Vic Heyliger's
icers will have to win at least five
out of their final six games, in-
cluding at least one from Minneso-
ta this coming weekend.
Following the big series at Min-
neapolis this weekend, Michigan
takes on North Dakota in a big
four-point series at the Coliseum,
and then closes at home against
Michigan Tech on March 6 and 7.
A sweep of all six games would au-
tomatically give Michigan a play-
off berth.
Despite all of this optimistic fu-
ture-scanning, pessimism was the
bywdrd from Coach Heyliger fol-
lowing the weekend sweep. The
genial coach rolled his battered ci-
gar in his mouth, exclaiming "our
defense was loose, we had only one
line that could score, State played
their best games of the season, and
despite all this we wor."
Shift Planned
To remedy this Heyllger plans
to shift his second line around so
that Jerry Karpinka will be at
center, flanked by Jay Goold and

BILL MacFARLAND, captain of Michigan's rising pucksters,
scored his fourth hat trick of the season and garnered a total
of eight points in the weekend series with Michigan State to
tie for scoring honors with teammate Tom Rendall and help
further the Wolverines' chances of gaining a berth to the NCAA
playoffs.

but the first-place ballots were
scattered more widely as some of
the other tournament - minded
teams gathered support. Points,
as usual, are scored on the basis
of 10 for each first place vote, nine
for second, etc.
San, Francisco, winning two
games last week, drew the votes
of 61 of the 126 voters and a to-
tal of 1,164 points. Last week the
Dons had 68 firsts and only 1,107
points.
Kentucky again registered 867,
points, but with only 12 first-place
ballots as compared to last week's
19.
Minnesota, a 78-71 winner over
Illinois, moved up from 12th place
to 8th and Illinois fell from tenth
to 14th. Marquette, unbeaten since
its opening game and the first "at'
large" team selected from the
NCAA Tournament, registered an-
other big gain, going from ninth
place to sixth.

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (P) - Last-

IOWA CITY OP)- - The Iowa
Hawkeyes overcame an early four-
point deficit and flashed back to
down Ohio State, 79-68, last
night.
Iowa cleared the bench and us-
ed all available men in the pro-
cess. Ohio played again without
Robin Freeman, the Big -Ten's
high scorer.
Marciano Has
Crucial Test
GROSSINGER, N.Y. (A') - A
worried Rocky Marciano will put
his golden beak to the test today
in a four-round workout with
sparmate Keene Simmons.

Yves Hebert. Of the 11 Michigan
goals scored last weekend, this line
managed to produce only one -
thus the shakeup is in order.
Defense will also be the byword
this week at the Coliseum, as the
Wolverines drill to break up the
devastating Gopher power plays
led by the league's leading scorer,
Johnny Mayasich.
On close analysis most observers
will conclude that Michigan was
lucky to gain the sweep of the
Michigan State series. Both nights
the Wolverines had to come from
behind to win, and if it was not for
the outstanding scoring efforts of
Bill MacFarland, and Tommy
Rendall, Michigan would be out of
the WIHL race as of now.
Hat Tricks Galore
Up at East Lansing Friday night,
before a paltry crowd of just over
1,000 depressed Spartan fans, Mac-
Farland and Rendall each tallied
three goals, and coupled with a
marker by Jerry Karpinka, it was
enough to gain a 7-4 win.
The feature of tie night was a
wild brawl between Michigan's
Mike.Buchanan and MSC's Dario
Nicoli, who slugged it out bare-
fisted for nearly a minute toward
the end of the game. Buchanan
came out the worse for wear, with
his index finger almost severed,
(Nicoli bit him), a lacerate dear,
and a cut on the forehead.
Last-Ditch Victory
Both teams played much better
hockey the following night, as
Michigan roared from behind in
the final period to pull out a 4-3
victory before a packed 'crowd in
the Coliseum.
Despite the fact that Michigan
power plays were failing to mate-
rialize, and the Spartans were defi-
nitely outhustling the Wolverines,
Michigan's brilliant front line rose
to the occasion, and in a storybook
rally, skated right through the
Spartan defenses to pull the game
out. A goal by Tom Rendall with
only four minutes left was the
clincher.
In two games Rendall, just re-
instated to league play, tallied five
goals and assisted on three others,
while MacFarland, the team's
leading scorer, rippled the cords
four times and assisted four times.

These are indeed fine efforts, but
unhappily they point up Michi-
gan's tremendous lack of scoring
balance, a factor which may yet
stem their current rise to WIHL
prominence.
