By JIM BENAGH
Three star-ladened powers-Iowa
Michigan State and Indiana-are
expected to peril Michigan's bid
for a second Big Ten Indoor Track
title.
All three foes have the depth
and balance to challenge defending,
champion and favored Michigan at
Michigan State's Jenison Field-
house this weekend.
The Wolverines, returning seven
of 15 point-makers from last sea-
son, jolted the indoor title away
from Illinois in the 1955 battle,
after playing bridesmaid in four
of five previous years of indoors
competition.
A poor seventh in the 1955 affair,
the Iowa Hawkeyes show all the
qualities needed to dethrone the
Maize and Blue. Michigan Coach
Don Canham passes the favorites
role to them.
Ted Wheeler looms as mile
champ, as indicated by a fine
4:11.2 run he turned in this year.
Stevens Tops Hurdlers
High hurdler Les Stevens and
low hurdler Jack Mathews have
recorded better times than any
other Western Conference speed-
sters this season.
Among 440-yard dashmen, Iowa's
Tom Ecker and Caeser Smith rate
one-two. Football star Earl Smith
is a potential scorer in the broad
jump.
Indiana's spotlight was dimmed
when Olympic star Milt Campbell
was dropped from a promising
Hoosier squad due to scholastic
difficulties. But Greg Bell, a soph-
omore, is due for a conference
broad jump record, and Indiana
Dons Still To
Illini Cling to

Coach Gordon Fisher isn't throw-
ing in the towel yet.
Bell leaped a fraction of an
inch over 26 feet in the National
AAU meet last year and has
jumped 25'6" already this winter.
Quarter-miler Don Ward is rated
high, along with Cal Boyd, who
shared first place with Michigan's
Mark Booth in the 1955 high jump
finals. Brealon Donaldson is re-
ported by Coach Fisher to be a
potential 14-footer in the pole
vault.
The individual star could well be
Northwestern's Jim Golliday, who
recently established a new world's
record with a clocking of :06.0 in
the 60-yard dash.

M'-Tech Hockey Series
Recalls 1953 Ice Sweep

By BRUCE BENNETT

As WIHL hockey races go, this
year's stretch drive is quite differ-
ent from those of the past, at least
from Michigan's point of view.
In the past two years in
the WIHL and the two previous
seasons in the Midwestern Hockey
League, Michigan has had uphill
battles facing them in the closing
weeks to gain a playoff berth and
league title.
This year they are virtually as-
sured of a playoff berth, needing
just a split with Michigan Tech in
four games to accomplish this
feat.
But for the league title it is a

different matter. This necessitates
either-1) a clean sweep of the
Tech series, or 2) three wins and
a tie from the Huskies.
It was just three years ago that
a season ending series between
these two schools had a vital ef-
fect on the league race. Minnesota
had already clinched a share of
first place and Michigan needed
to sweep the Tech series to tie
them.
New Line Aided Win
A few weeks earlier, his team
beset by injuries and eligibility
problems, Coach Vic Heyliger was
forced to reshuffle his line up. For
one forward combination he came
up with- the names George Chin,
Doug Mullen and Pat Cooney.
In the heat of thb torrid race,,
this line rewarded its coach with
a nine goal outburst against Tech,
as Michigan skated to 8-3 and 10-2'
wins.
This year Michigan is also get-
ting help from other teams in the
league. Something it didn't get
in the past. Minnesota virtually
eliminated Colorado last week. In
that 1953, season, Michigan State
could have aided the Wolverines
by beating Minnesota late in the
year, but the unobliging Spartans
dropped two games to the Gophers,
setting the stage for Michigan's
two wins over Tech.
Tech Students
Vie for Seats
For Ice Battle
HOUGHTON (R)-Gerald Saltz-
'gaber routed himself out of bed at
four a.m. today, hoping to be in
line for tickets for Michigan Tech's
important hockey series with the
University this weekend.
But he was hours too late. When
he arrived at the ticket office,
he found seven other Michigan
Tech students snoozing soundly in
their sleeping bags, holding their
positions in line while waiting for
sales to start at 8 a.m.
The temperature at the time was
a cool six below zero.
Games here Friday and Saturday
and at Ann Arbor the following
weekend will determine the cham-
pion of the Western Intercollegiate
Hockey League.
Only 95 seats were available
today out of 1,300 in all. An addi-
tional 1,700 standees are expected
to pack the rink both nights.

Matmen Hit
Peak Form
For Finale,
By HANK ROSENBAUM
Readying themselves for the Big
Ten Championships this Friday
and Saturday, the Michigan wrest-
lers 'went through a rugged work-
out yesterday under the watchful
eye of Coach Cliff Keen.
Even this far through the season
there is still competition among
the men to decide who will make
the trip to Evanston, Illinois.
Three men, Charlie Anderson,
Dan Deppe, and Jack Porter are
fighting for the 123 or 130 pound
berth and one of them must be
eliminated. In the heavyweight
division it is still a toss-up whether
Rupert O'Brien or Tom Krause
will represent the Wolverines,
Successful Comeback
The team seems to have finally
hit its stride, winning its last six
dual meets after dropping the
first three. "I think these guys
have done a tremendous job" said
Coach Keen.
"If our spirit had not beet high
we could never have overcome our
slow start."
With the return of Don Haney,
Dan Deppe and Tom Krause, the
team has racked up successive vic-
tories over Purdue, Michigan State,
Iowa, Northwestern, Toledo, and
Ohio State.
Mike Rodriguez looks exception-
ally good as he has made a clean

sweep of his last eight matches
after dropping a close 4-3 decision
in his first outing.
John McMahon is also in top
shape after completing the dual
meet, season undefeated, having
beaten two defending Big Ten
champs along the way.
At this moment Don Haney's
ankle injury is still an important
question mark. Haney is the de-
fending confeience champion at
147 pounds.

"Projects you can sink your teeth into"

Cliff Downer (right), A.B. in Mathematics, '49, M.S. in Civil Engineering,
'"' Harvard, on the site of a building construction project.

Clifford J. Downer started his tele-
phone career in the building engineering
department of The Southern New Eng-
land Telephone Company. At present he
is working with the Bell System's manu-
facturing unit, Western Electric, helping
to build facilities for housing a Conti-
nental Air Defense project. His assign-
ment: a key liaison job in supervising a
subcontractor's work on a several million
dollar construction operation.
"One of the most interesting features
of my present job," says Cliff, "is making
decisions on the spot. For example, draw-
ings showed where bedrock for footings
would be reached. Excavations revealed

down do we go? A hundred workers and
tons of equipment are waiting for the
decision.
"There's a lot of future for a civil en-
gineer in the telephone business. New and
smaller types of telephone equipment will
probably change our ideas about how
telephone buildings should be built. It's
fascinating work, all right. And broaden-
ing, too, because it's leading me to other
engineering fields.
"It looks to me as if there are real
challenges ahead - projects you can sink
your teeth into. Besides, I'm convinced
the telephone business recognizes and
regards personal industriousness and
