Ice Squad Wins NCAA Championship






(Continued from Page 1)

routing Michigan State, 7-4, the
revitalized crew went on to sweep
its next seven games and jump
into the national limelight.
A wide-open -3 win over Har-
vard in the semi-finals set the
stage for the tight 5-3 contest
with Colorado College for all the
marbles. The climactic victory
brought Michigan's overall sea-
son total to 18 wins, five defeats,
and one tie.
Final League standings saw Col-
orado in first with a 14-4 mark,
followed by Michigan with .13-5,
Minnesota, Michigan Tech, Den-
4er, North Dakota, and Michigan
State in that order..
Team Effort
Success for a brilliant season
can be traced to a team effort, but
the performances of several indi-
viduals paced the drive.
High on the list was goalie
Lorne Howes, who was particular-
ly tough when he had to be. His
outstanding play in the finals
brought him the first team spot
for the tournament. Defensive
play of Schiller; Bob Pitts, Mike
Buchanan, and Bernie Hanna
proved to be the consistent
strength needed, as Michigan be-
came noted for its fast back-skat-
ing and alert stickwork.
Many a Michigan fan will re-
member the grayish-haired Schil-
ler lunging to the ice to block shot
ofter shot aimed at Howes. The
defense was particularly tough
Rand pulled no punches with Schil-
ler more-or-less setting the exam-
ple! .
Offensively, the big guns were
easy-skating Captain Bill Mac-
Farland, who was the W1HLs

number three high scorer with 52
points, Rendall, and petite, scrap-
py Dick Dunnigan. Other key fig-
ures in the always deadly, some-
times-explosive attack were Jay
Goold, Jerry Karpinka, Yves He-
bert, and Neil Buchanan.
With all of Michigan's team re-
turning and the addition of sev-
eral promising freshmen, things
look bright for the future in hock-

The rest of the League this year
should continue to be tough. In
the unpredictable game of colle-
giate hockey, almost anything is
liable to happen.
Colorado should be one of the
favorites this year with Denver
also hoping to grab a playoff
berth Both sextets,s like Michi-
gan, have a formidable list of re-
turning veterans plus several "hot"
freshman prospects.

Student Grid Tickets

With the opening football game
being played before the start of
classes this semester, student ticket
distribution will have to be done
under a new setup.
This season students will receive
their tickets on Wednesday, Thurs-
day and Friday of Registration
week. All tickets will be distributed
in Yost Field House.
The schedule'is a follows:
Wednesday ....... 8:00-4:30
Thursday ..........8:00-4:30
Friday .............8:00-4:30
Saturday .........8:00-11:00
All groups will be given tickets
on each day, since it is impractical
to set aside separate days. Tickets
will be staggered so that no one
group will be slighted for getting
tickets on a later day. However,
group priority ends on Friday af-
The group arrangement, as an-
nounced by ticket manager Don
Weir, is as follows:
0-11/2 semesters ..... group 1
2-32 semesters ..... group 2
4-5% semesters ..... group 3
6 or more semesters . group 4

These are only semesters in resi-
dence at the University. Summer
session counts as one-half a semes-
Block 'M'
Block 'M' will again take part
of the seating in the senior sec-
tion. It will' occupy half of sec-
tions 24 and 25 from row 25 to
row 70, making a total of 1242
This means that many of those
Ovho normally would be sitting in
these sections will be moved to
sections further down.. However,
this is no fault of the ticket office.
Block 'M' was a student project
and should be treated as such.
Registration for openings in the
Block 'M' section will be announc-
ed in the fall.
Did you know that in 1901 the
Wolverine football squad was un-
defeated. They won 11 games and
held opponents scoreless while
compiling a total of 550 points.
This is the same year that Michi-
gan went to the first Rose Bowl
game in which they defeated Stan-
ford 49-0.

"NewhFaces" might well have
been the title given to the 1955
edition of Michigan's varsity golf
The team, like the show, was
somewhat less than spectacular in
its performance, but the very fact
that it was new blood trying to
make a go of it, gave the team the
boost it needed to escape from the
cellar of the Big Ten standings it
occupied in 1954.
Six sophomores, untried in col-
lege competition, Captain Bob Mc-
Masters, a junior, and one senior
made up Coach Bert Katzenmey-
er's greenest squad in years.
Finish Fourth
Together they brought the Wol-
verine links reputation back up
to the level to which it had long
been accustomed by placing fourth
in the Big Ten Conference Meet
held this year on the Purdue
University course in Lafayette,
For sophomores Steve. Uzelac,
Fred Micklow, and Henry Loeb,
the meet was probably one of the
brightest spots in their golfing
careers. With tornado warnings,
high winds, and heavy rains cut-
ting the schedule 72 hole match to
54 holes, Uzelac, playing against
seasoned conference veterans, fired
a blazing 227 to wind up 5th in
the conference.
Micklow was right behind with a
229, earned him 8th place, and
Loeb finished 17th with a 234.
Fast Close
For the sophomore-laden squad,
which had been alternately hot
and cold all season, this tremen-
dous finish was a real feather in
its cap.
Following a brief southern prac-
tice trip which included a practice
match with University of North
Carolina, and a three-day stint at
Pinehurst, the Wolverines trounced
the University of Detroit, 15-3, in
the home opener.
The future looked rosy for Mich-
igan after this meet'as McMasters
fired a blazing one-under-par 71
and with Micklow and Skip Mac-
Michael, another sophomore, also
shooting well enough to make a
sweep in earning points.

. . . steady golf
dual meet season, and both times
finished on top. The first match
the Wolverines won handily, 25%/
to 10/2, but by the second time the
squads met, several of the Michi-
gan men had begun to develop
troubles. The Spartans outscored
Michigan in the afternoon rounds
of this match, but not by enough
to overcome their morning deficit.
This proved to be Michigan's
only taste of victory in Big Ten
competition. In three triangular
meets with Purdue and Ohio State,
who finished one-two in the cham-
pionships, the best the Wolverines
could do was to tie the Buckeyes
Northwestern's Wildcats also
gave the Wolverines a bad time of
it as they eked out a 19-17 win.
To Katzenmeyer, who coached
Michigan to the Big Ten cham-
pionship in 1952 and to the runner-
up spot in 1953, the team showing
was not as good as he had ex-
pected. Were it not for some of the
exceptionally fine performances
turned in by several of the sopho-
mores, the season may well have
been one of woe.
Start Slow
Uzelac and Loeb both started the
season very slowly, seldom turning
in rounds that might be expected
of a varsity golfer. Two weeks be-
fore the Big Ten meet however,
Uzelac, who is able to drive a ball
300 yards, turned in a 67 in a
practice round. Loeb too, was get-
ting his score down to where he
averaged around 75 just before
the championship meet.
Micklow was perhaps the most
monsistent as he started out shoot-
ing in the neighborhood of 77, and
brought it down to a neat 72
average by the season's end.

. . .looks to future
Senior Andy Andrews, Captain
McMasters, and sophomore John
Schubeck proved to be the biggest
disappointments during the sea-
son. Andrews, with two years of
varsity experience behind him, just
could not find his game and as a
result did poorly in the Big Ten
McMaster's Hot
McMasters started the season
like a house afire with his under
par effort against Detroit and by
winning medalist honors a week

later against Michigan State de-
veloped troubles and was unable to
tie his game together well enough
to make him a threat in the con-
ference meet.
Schubeck hit his peak at mid-
season when he came through with
flying colors to win medalist hon-
ors in one of the Ohio State
meets. His game too went t
pieces along toward the end of the
season, and he wasn't effective at
all in the Big Ten meet.
At any rate, Katzenmeyer is

very optimistic about next years
chances. Losing only one man from
the current squad, and with a now
well-seasoned nucleus to build
around, Michigan will be a definite
title threat next year.
Also coming along will be three
fine freshman prospects and the
two sophomores on this years
squad who didn't get a chance to
play in the Big Ten meet this year,
Skip MacMichael and Ken Myers,
both of whom are very respectable

Three Sports Thrills Hightlight Season

(Continued from Page 3)
History had been made . .. the
triple crown of Collegiate track be-
longed to Michigan.
* * *
The third great sports thrill took
just a second, and probably will
soon be forgotten - but it was
a thrill just the same. The man
who did it, vas the big news in
the Michigan sports world last
year -- Ron Kramer. The giant
East Detroit sophomore ran wild
on the gridiron as a brillian pass
receiver and defensive end, then
led Michigan basketball team to
one of its best seasons in recent
years, and closed out the year by
doing credit to Michigan's track
play, Michigan is undefeated in
three appearances. The Wolver-
ines have ammased a total of 112
points via beating Stanford twice
by 49-0 and California by 14-6
in 1951.

team, participating the shotput,
discus, and high jump events.
But Kramer reached his zenith
that night of February 15th, when
he flipped in a sensational under-
hand lay-up shot with two seconds
left to give Michigan a crucial
72-70 victory over a fighting
Northwestern quintet.
Fash Finish
4,000 roaring fans in Yost Field
House watched a rugged Wildcat
five, the best the Evanstonians had
fielded in years, fight back from a
deficit late in the game with big
forward Frank Ehmann leading
the way.
But Michigan held grimly on, as
the Wildcats tied the score at 70-
70 with a minute to play. Michi-
gan's Jerry Stern then tried to
tcore but missed, and the Wildcats
n!%bbed the rebound. Dcwn ze
court they came with a half-min-
ute to play and victory seemingly
so near.
With 15 seconds left, Wildcat,
Freddie Duhart calmly f i r e d a

jump shot from back of the foul
circle. It bounded high in the air
and Wolverine Don Eaddy came
down with the rebound. The score
was still tied.
The throng went berserk as Tom
Jorgenson took Eaddy's pass and
moyed down court with only sec-
onds left. Jorgenson quickly whip-
ped a bounce-pass to Kramer in
the pivot, who took two giant steps,
leaped under the basket, and laid
it in. Victory was Michigan's and
the fans in Yost Field House that
night will probably never forget it.
These, then were the big thrills
of a' big year. The school year
that starts this month undoubtedly
see even greater thrills added to
these - thrills that will become
living part of the great tradition
that characterizes sports at the
University of Michigan.
Did you know that Michigan's
first intercollegiate football game
was played in 1879 against Racine
College. The Woverines won the
