Make Debut
Five freshmen will make their
Michigan hockey debut tonight at
the Coliseum when the Wolver-
ines and the Detroit Red Wings
clash in an exhibition game.
Game time is 8 p.m.
Tickets on Sale
Tickets are on sale at the Ath-
letic Administration Building un-
til 4:30 today and after 5 p.m.
are obtainable at the rink.
The newcomers that Coach Vic
Heyliger will use tonight are Bar-
rie Hayton, a defenseman, and
forwards John Hutton, Don Gour-
ley, John Rendall and Gary Starr.
Rendall is a brother of Tom Ren-
dall, star forward on the varsity.
These additions will enable
Heyliger to form an entire line
- composed of freshmen, with the
extra forward" being used to cen-
ter the third line, between Jay
Goold and Jerry Karpinka.
Heyliger is pleased with the op-
portunity to face 'some outside
competition and feels that the
game will be beneficial to the squad
as a tune up for this weekend's
series at Minnesota.
Hard pressed once again to
make one of the two NCAA play-
off spots, Michigan is not expected
to have to forfeit any games .due
to the suspension of Wally Max-
well and Mike Buchanan.

Hospital sometime this week
according to Les Etter, Univer-
sity Athletic Publicity Director.
Blott was admitted to, the

eration two weeks ago.
Wings plan to bring their entire
squad into Ann Arbor for tonight's
encounter. All of the profession-
als will play, with the possible
exception of regular goalie Glenn
Detroit generally uses its as-
sistant trainer, Ross 'Lefty' Wil-
son, in the nets in exhibition
games, but there is a chance that
Hall might make a token appear-
In addition to being quite a
showman, Wilson is also a capable
goal keeper. Several weeks ago

into action and performed bril-

"Slump" isn't the word to use
It's becoming quite evident that
Michigan's basketball team is go-
ingsto wind up the season far from
the top of the Big Ten standings
--and perhaps close to the bottom.
The Wolverines find a little
solace in noting that four of the
remaining five games on the cur-
rent schedule are at home, giving
them a good chance to better their
record (3-6 Conference, 2-9 over-
Fatal Weekend
A horrendous weekend, featur-
ing one-sided losses at Indiana and
Illinois, dropped the local quintet
to an eighth-place tie in the West-
ern Conference.
The loss to mighty Illinois, 89-
66, Monday night, came as no sur-
prise; the Illini are leading the
pack with a perfect 8-0 record.
Michigan played creditably, and
gave the nation's third-ranked
college team some uneasy moments
in the first half.
Again it was Ron Kramer who
carried most of the burden. Kra-
mer, whose recent scoring splurges
may earn him some post-season
honors, led both teams with 26
points. He is now averaging 20.1
points-per-game, but is getting
little offensive support.
Accuracy Improved
Michigan hit on 33 per cent
of its field goal attempts against
Illinois, an improvement over some
recent endeavors, but the hosts
sported a 40 per cent mark.
Indiana, which will visit Yost
Field House this Saturday night,
turned a close contest into a sec-
ond-half rout last Saturday. Paced
by Archie Dees, Wally Choice and
Hallie Bryant, the Hoosiers smoth-
ered Bill Perigo's squad, 97-73.
The Indiana game was the last
in a Michigan uniform for for-
ward Jerry Stern, who has used
up his eligibility. Soph Randy
Tarrier and junior Milt Lingle will
fill Stern's position.

Their impressive showing at the
Michigan State Relays last week-
end proved almost conclusively
that Michigan's trackmen will pro-
vide a big threat at the Big Ten
Championships on Marche 2-3 at
- Highlighting the team's showing
was the world indoor record for
the sprint medley relay, consisting
of a quarter-mile, two 220's and
an 880. Scruggs, Flodin, Rudesill
and star distance man Ron Wall-
ingford did it in 3:26.5, to knock
:02.2 off the old mark, established
in 1954 by Kansas.
Though both Michigan and
Kansas took four firsts at the an-
nual cinde extravaganza, Michi-
gan must be given the edge as a
track squad, since three potent
Wolverine entries had to wait un-
til the first day of the second
semester to become eligible.
These three are pole-vaulter
Eeles Landstrom and miler Geert
Keilstrup, both of whom just turn-
ed sophomores, and Mark Booth,
the Big Ten champion high-jump-
er who withdrew from school for
a semester. All three men have
turned in performances which

would have been good enough for
first place. A fourth absentee, star
half-miler Pete Gray was out due
to illness.
Dave Owen, Michigan's out-
standing Big Ten shot-put titlist,
who is accustomed to first places,
met his superior at Lansing in
the person of the NCAA champ,
Kansan Bill Nieder.
A solution as to which is the
superior squad will come about this
Saturday, when these two track
giants -Michigan and Kansas -
collide on the Jayhawker's home
grounds. This should be one of

the outstanding dual meets of re-
cent years.
Wallingford, the bushy-haired
native of Ottawa, Ont., proved
himself to be one of the top ath-
letes in the Big Ten Saturday
night. After helping the Maize
and Blue to the sprint medley re-
cord, running an uhfamiliar dis-
tance, the anchor half-mile, the
Michigan captain came back with
only an hour's rest to run two
miles in 9:16.2. the best time of
his career, leaving most of the
other runners more than a lap
behind at the finish.

grounds. This should be one of behind at the finish,

Trackmen Show Potential In Relays

M i c h i g a n's swimming team
opened practice for the Indiana
meet yesterday, knowing full wel
that another loss this weekend
would all but eliminate them as a
major athreat in the Western Con-
ference meet next month.
With the squad finally at ful
strength, it appears that the Wol-
verines' potential should reach
its peak against the Hoosiers Sat-

break another record every time

the Wolverines present a formid-
able lineup for any opponent.
A convincing win this weekend
will restore much of the team'sj
confidence, and may be just the
t9nic they need for the highlight
of the dual meet season, the Ohio
State meet just two weeks hence.

Also returning to the squad is
sprinter Bobby Knox, who with
his time consuming Dent school
courses does not find much time to
practice. Squeezing his workouts
in any spare time he gets, Knox is
a welcome addition to the team,
and may prove a big help to them.
Probably the high point of the
season so far, has been the fine
work of Michigan's diving trio of
Charlie Bates, John Narcy and
John Murphy. Under the tutelage
of diving coach Bruce Harlan,
Bates, who finished sixth in the
Big Ten last season, is undefeated
this winter and should do apprec-
iably better in this year's meet.

CLEVELAND (P)-Sale of the
Cleveland Indians baseball club!
to a new corporation for nearly
four million dollars was recom-
mended to the stockholders yes-
terday, President Myron H. Wilson
Jr., announced.

Matmen Win Three In Comeback

He said the directors, who own
a large majority of Indians stock,
recommended the club be sold to
a corporation headed by William
R. Daley, president of the invest-
ment firm of Otis and Co.
The Daley group has offered
about $3,961,800, which would be
$1,550 per share of the present
company, Wilson said.
The offer for the Indians is be-
lieved the highest ever made for
a ball club.
Last year the Indians' owners re-
jected an offer of about three mil-
lion dollars for the club.
The Indians were last sold Nov.
21, 1949, by Bill Veeck to the pres-
ent company for about $2,200,000.
The shares then were $100 each,
but each shareholder had to put
up around $300 of his own money
as a loan. The loans since have
been paid off.

Last Saturday afternoon at Yost
Field House the Wolverines wrest-
ing squad extended its winning
streak to three by virtue of an 18-
15 edge over visiting Iowa.
At the close of the first sem-
ester the Michigan matmen, de-
fending Big Tep champions, had
been the possessors of an overall
0-3 record. However, since the re-
turn of Don Haney, 147 pound
Conference champion, the fortunes
of the Wolverines began to change
as they edged out both Purdue and
Michigan State by 18-16 and 14-
12 margins respectively.
Heavyweight Rupert O'Brien
saved the day for Michigan, trail-
ing 16-15 behind Purdue, as he
took a decision and the accom-
panying three points in the final
match to give the Wolverines a
Captain Mike Rodriguez, wrest-
ling at the 157 pound weight, more
than provided the winning margin
over Michigan State by pinning
his opponent and adding five
points to the team total. Both
squads won four events; however,
all of State's came via decisions,

while the Wolverines got two extra
points for Rodriguez' fall which
gave them the meet.
Against the Haw'keye grapplers,
the men wrestlnig in the middle
weight classes, namely, Haney,
Rodriguez, and 167 pounder John
McMahon again proved to be the
mainstay of the squad, as each
won his third match in a row.
Another winner for the Michi-

gan matmen was Lloyd Hamady,
wrestling at the 137 pound weight,
who pinned his man giving the
squad an early lead, which was
subsequently added to by the three
middle weights who gained con-
secutive decisions to almost clinch
a victory for the Maize and Blue.'
This weekend the squad journ-
eys to Evanston, Illinois to meet
the lowly Northwestern grapplers.
