Michigan is like-wise finally
under a full head of steam. Hold-
ing a league winning streak of
three straight, Vic Heyliger's icers
have forged into a first place
WIHL tie with North Dakota.
* Thus the stage is set for what
may be one of the truly great
nights in Michigan hockey history.
Coach Johnny Mariucci of the
Olympians has the finest group
of American hockey players ever
to gather on the same ice, under
his command. The thundering
volleys of Johnny Mayasich, Bill
Cleary, Dick Dougherty, Weldy Ol-
son, Gene Campbell, and Michi-
gan's John Matchefts will test the
Michigan defense to the utmost.
The crack goaltending of Don

Michigan's 64-47 'win In gym-
nastics over Michigan State, to-
gether with the sensational all-
around show put on by Ed Gag-
nier, has forced coach Newt Lok-
en's wide smile to spread out a
little more than usual.
Gagnier's five firsts were the
high spot of the meet and have
had local gymnastic fans talking.
Loken made the assertion that
from what he has seen, he thinks
that Gagnier "will definitely chal-
lenge the All-Around Champion-
ship this year at the Big Ten
Although Loken was pleased
with the results of Monday's meet,
he hastened to say that not much
can really be told from the vic-
tory as MSU is not one of the
stronger teams in the conference.
Wiese, Bates 'Fine'
Besides Gagnier, Loken pointed
to the performances of Nick Wiese
and Charlie Bates as very fine.
"For having to work in five events,
Wiese came through very well, and
Bates second on the trampoline
deserves a lot of credit as he can't
work with us regularly because of
his diving," said Loken.
Another thing that showed up
Monday was Michigan's strength
on the parallel bars and high bar,
and its comparative weakness in
tumbling and the trampoline., "I
hope our weak events come'around
a little for Illinois. They're the
champs and we surely want to beat
them," said Loken.
Rogazio and Michigan's Willard
Ikola will put a tremendous ob-
stacle in front of Coach Vic Hey-
liger's flashy offense.
It will be more than just a game
between a college and a group of
all-stars. It is a test between na-
tions for all practical purposes.
Michigan's team is entirely made
up of the finest junior players in
all Canada. The Olympians are
the best players America has pro-
duced in.the past five years.
Michigan's Chances Good
What chance does Michigan
stand in the face of such opposi-
tion? The Olympians are certainly

in for a battle. Minnesota's green
squad held the mighty Olympians
to a slim 3-2 victory at St. Paul
Saturday night. If Minnesota can
come that close, it can certainly
be reasoned that powerful Michi-
gan can come even closer.
The Olympic team is definitely
in for its toughest battle until it
reaches the scene of the 1956

Proceeds for Fund
The entire proceeds of the game
will be turned over by the Uni-
versity of Michigan to the Olym-
pic Fund as its contribution to-
ward sending our teams to Cort-
ina, and to Melbourne next fall.
Despite the newspaper strike in
Detroit there is considerable in-
terest in the game, and student
reaction here at Ann Arbor is re-
markably high. Well over 100 fans
are expected to take the charter-
ed busses in, and possibly over a
thousand others will make the
trip by car.

After finishing second to Michi-
gan State in the first Big Ten
Invitational Meet, the Michigan
swimmers today began prepara-
tions for the opening of the dual
The natators travel to Iowa this
weekend to meet Iowa State Col-
lege on Friday night, arid the
University of Iowa, Saturday. The
latter is the first conference meet
for the tankmen.
Michigan State captured the
Invitational Meet title by edging
the Wolverines 76-63. The host
Spartans capitalized on their
sprinters to capture four first
places in an all relay contest.
Handicapped by Sprints
Michigan was handicapped by
the lack of long distance races.
While the Spartans have almost
all of their strength in the short
sprints, the Wolverines have most
of their power in the longer races.
None of the swimmers had to go
over 100 yards and most of them
had to go no longer than 50 yards.
This proved a greet handicap, es-
pecially to the performers that
usually take honors in the longer
races, such as Jack Wardrop, Har-
rison Wehner, and John O'Reilly.
Coach Gus Stager said that in
general he was satisfied with the
team's performance. However, he
did not feel that the meet was
much of an indication of the-
Wolverine's strength this season.
Varsity Outlook Hopeful
Most of last year's varsity is
back, and these swimmers give all
indications that they will continue
the same calibre of performance
that made Michigan one of the
Big Ten powers last season.-.
Michigan's divers gave a very
impressive performance in the
meet copping first place honors by
more than 100 points.
The impressive showing of John
Narcer, John Murphy and Charlie
Bates should mean that the Woi-
Gerines will be able to pick up
some much needed points in the
diving events if these three are
able to continue their fine show-
on the right track

jumper once, but he is now going

athletics, coaching and business,
