CHAMPIONSHIP AT STAKE:
Michigan Tech Pucksters Arrive Today

By DAVE GREY
Michigan Tech's hockey team is
scheduled to arrive by plane today,
a day early, for this weekend's
slam-bang finish with Michigan in
the WIHL race.
After arriving at Willow Run
at 3 p.m., the squad will travel to
the Michigan Union, where they
will stay until Wednesday of next
week.
Leave for Colorado
Both Michigan and Tech will fly
from here on Wedlnesday for Colo-
rado Springs and the NCAA finals
which will begin a week from to-
day.
Interest in Ann Arbor is heading
for an all-time high in enthusiasm.
Much of the feverish excitement
of the series at Houghton last
weekend has rubbed off here. home
students are reported even to be
planning to camp out overnight
in order to be assured of tickets
tomorrow.
General admission tickets will
go on sale for both of the week-
end's championship contest, at 8:30
a.m. tomorrow at the Athletic Ad-
ministration Building.
All reserved tickets have been.
sold out.

Police will be on hand to prevent
"scalping"-the resale of tickets
for more than the established
price. There will be no standing
room tickets sold.
First Championship
Both teams are up for the big
series, which will determine the,
WIHL's winner this year. Michigan
will be gunning for a sweep over
the Huskies, which would mean
the first undisputed League title
for the Wolverines since the Lea-
gue's beginning in 1952.
Tech has to win only one game
to assure itself of the champion-
ship. Both teams could end up in
the final standings with the same
number of points, but Tech is, at
present, one game ahead in the
"win column."
Wolverine captain Bill MacFar-
land has recovered after treatment
for a minor infection on his back.
The high-scoring senior, who will
be making his final home appear-
ance against Tech, got out of the
infirmary yesterday and is ex-
pected to be in top shape for this
weekend.

M' Grap piers Star in Big Ten Finals

By JIM BAAD
It sounds like the same old story,
but Michigan's basketball team
should be better next year.
Granted this optimistic view has
been expounded before, and things
never seemed to work out. Granted
also that the predictions were us-
ually made on future talent from
the freshman basketball team, and
then the talent never came up to
expectations.
Again this year however the
freshmen players have undergone
some sharp scrutiny from the eager
beavers who want to learn what
they can about what to expect
down at Yost Fieldhouse in the
winter of '56-57.
Top Forwards
Here's what the hopeful prophets
have been seeing to get excited
about. Headlined are two of the
best forwards that freshman coach
Dave Strack has seen- in a long
time at Michigan.'
George Lee and M. C. Burton
have been causing a lot of dis-
cussion among the Wolverine bas-

ketball fans ever since they led
the freshmen to a 70-61 victory
over the varsity in the annual,
scrimmage just before Christmas.
"Lee is a hard driver with ex-
cellent speed," reports Strack,
"while Burton is the better out-
court shot. They balance each
other in these respects and both
are great rebounders."
"Another thing in their favor
is both -have a griat enthusiasm
for the game. However, neither is
very tall," added Strack. Lee
stands 6'3" and Burton is 6'5".
Prahst Improved
A player who has improved since
the early winter scrimmage, and
who Strack figures to be close to
Burton and Lee in talent is Gary
Prahst, a 6'4" forward. He has
rounded out the freshman fiont
line this year at center, and has
been an especially strong reboundI-
er.
Prahst is also a football player
of excellent quality, and therefore
will not be able to start basketball
until late in pre-season practice.

By The Associated Press
Boston
The Philadelphia warriors, led
by Neil Johnston with 34,points
and Paul Arizin with 23, won the
National Basketball Assn.'s east-
ern division championship -Wed-
nesday night by defeating the
New York Knickerbockers 108-87.
The Warriors clinched the east-

Johnston, Arizin and Tom Gola
were the key men as Philadelphia
exploded for 38 points in the final
quarter to pull away from the
Knicks, who trailed only 70-67
after thiee periods.
The loss was a bitter one for
New York, battling for third place
and playoff 'spot with Syracuse.
The Knicks are in last place in
the eastern division with a 32-36
record.

Five thousand fans at the West

Eight greyhounds leaped glee-

Wednesday was awarded the na-
tional television rights for college
football in 1956 at a meeting of
the television committee of the
NCAA. The schedule of national
games is expected to be announced
shortly.

Although none of last night's
efforts will go toward the final
standings in the meet, Williams
must be-ruled the favorite since
they placed twice as many men1
in the finals as did runner up
Wenley.
In third place was Reeves with
5, followed by Chicago with four,
Taylor, VanTyne and Gomberg
with three each, Allen-Rumsey and
Anderson with two apiece and
Cooley, one.
Double Winner
The big gun for Williams House
was Bob Denison, who swam to
victories in both the 100-yard free
style and 50 yard free style, in ad-
dition to swimming the anchor
leg on the winning 200-yard free
style relay team.
Denison was the only double
winner of the evening. Two other
swimmers, Bert Getz of Reeves
and Kazer Pearce of Anderson,
narrowly missed this honor, how-
ever, garnering one first and one
second.
After taking second place in-,the
50-yard backstroke, Getz came
back to win the 50-yard breast
stroke. Pearce won the 200-yard
free style and came in second to
Denison in the 100 yard free style.
The only other individual win-
ner was Reeves' Chuck Pickett,
who' captured the 50 yard back-
stroke.

(This is the last of two articles re-
viewing Michigan's Big Ten Wrestling
win. Tuesday's article dealt with the
breaks, good and bad, which brought
the championship 'to the Wolverines.)
From Michigan's point of view
there were many exciting and
crucial matches during the two-
day Western Conference Wrestling
Tournament at Evanston last
weekend.
Best Matches
But, unquestionably, the two
outstanding matches of the meet
were the 157 pound battle between
Mike Rodriguez and Larry TenPas;
respective captains of the Wolv-
erines and the Illini, and Jack
Marchello's duel with Gary Kurd-
elmeier of the Hawkeyes at 177.
The Rodriguez-TenPas match
was more than a battle for the
Big Ten championship. It was a
matter of personal pride and a
grudge match which dates back
to the 1955 season.
In the Illinois-Michigan dual
meet of that year, the two stars
met in the 167 pound match, Ten-
Pas winning a close 9-7 decision.
At the conference champion-
ships Rodriguez moved down to
the 157 pound class and so the

expected battle failed to come off;
but a sharp exchange of words in
the locker room, after the Maize
and Blue had been awarded the
cup, led to bitter feelings that
were not soon forgotten.
And so when it was learned that
TenPas planned to move down to

--Earl Riskey
157 at the conference meet for the
express purpose of meeting Rod-
riguez, interest soared throughout
wrestling circles.
And the match was all it was
expected to be and more.
In the first period action was
fast and furious and at the horn
TenPas led by an unusually large
6-5 score.
Tied Score
Rodriguez escaped after half a
minute of the second stanza to
knot the score at 6-6 and '1

NORTH AMERICAN HAS BUILT MORE AIRPLANES THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY IN THE WORLD

from then on the action was
almost phenomenal. Both duelists
grappled to the mat and repeated-
ly gained successive "reversals"
and near falls on one another.
The referee discontinued award-
ing points as he vainly sought to
discover whether a fall had been
gained. Suddenly at 4:36, with
Rodriguez holding his opponents
shoulders to the mat, the referee
slammed down his fist indicating
the end of the match.
Marchello's tussle with KUrdel-
meier, though slower, was nearly
as exciting. No one gave the
Wolverine a chance. All thought,
Iowa had the title sewed up.
But Marchello fought the battle
of his career. After a scoreless
initial period, the Wolverine be-
gan the second stanza on the bot-
tom but escaped after about ten
seconds to gain a 1-0 lead.
Then, in the decisive final
period, he hung on top, often by
little less than will-power until
with 20 second left, Kurdelmeier
reversed. Not yet finished, Mar-
chello gained a re-reversal with but
10 seconds remaining to gain a
victory and give to Michigan an-
other well-deserved championship.
