NCAA Champions
Michigan's coach Newt Loken
cites Illinois as the team to beat.
The Illini were Big Ten and NCAA
Champions last year, and should
be favored to repeat again this
season. They havebeen Confer-
ence champs every year since 1950.
Loken says that Michigan State
is also a powerhouse this year.
They are blessed with great depth
- the equivalent of threeateams'

Michigan will be depending on!
three men to score their bulk of;
points. Co-captains Nick Wiese
and Wayne Warren, who both
looked good in Monday's intra-!

for Saturday's competition, and
are both dependable point-getters
from last season.

be sophomore Jim Hayslett, a
standout as a freshman last year,

Michigan's All-American end
Ron Kramer closed out his bril-
liant college football career with
still another honor added to his,
fabulous collection.
For his sparkling feats thati
helped the Wolverines defeat Ohio!
State in the final game of the sea-I
son, 19-0, Kramer was named yes-
terday the Associated Press line-
man of the week in the final bal-'
loting of the season by sports-
casters and broadcasters.
The crowd at Columbus, Ohio,.
saw Kramer in the center of num-
erous plays. He was outstanding
both on 'defense and offense. Be-
sides snaring two passes, he made
tackles all over the field.

Kramer regarded his selection
as one of the highest honors that
he has received in his brilliant
career. "Naturally, I'm very pleasedj
about it," Kramer said, "especially
since it came after a game with
Ohio State, our traditional rival."
"But I can't really say if I
played one of my best games,"
Kramer added. "I don't think as
much about that as I do about try-j
ing to do better."
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan was

will take part in the meet, which
also includes top swimmers from
such schools at Bowling Green,
Michigan State and Western Mich-
igan. Since this is an AAU meet,!
and not an intercollegiate event,
the Michigan freshman swimmers
will also be eligible to compete.
Coach Gus Stager commented
that this meet "should give a goodI
indication as to the strength of
the Michigan team." The Wol-
verines, with one of the most
promising groups of sophomores
in many years, are rated as strong
contenders for both Big Ten and,
national honors.
One of the top events on the
program should be the 100-yd.
freestyle which has five top swim-.
mers entered in it. Carl Woolley,,
a Michigan sophomore and one of
the top sprinters in the U.S. rates
as the favored in this event. H
should get strong competition from
Fritz Myers, who is the outstand-
ing Varsity swimmer returning.
from last year.
Leigh Corby, a Michigan fresh-
man, Howard Scarborough, De-
troit city champion in high school,
and Ray Martin, Michigan state
champion, round out the field in
this event.
Bumpy Jones, captain of the
1955 Wolverine natators, and na-
tional champion and record holder,
will return to competition in the

"B" Championship game be-
tween Sigma Chi and Pi Lamb-

Chi the victor, rather than 14-
6 as reported in yesterday's
440-yd. freestyle. Pete Fries, an-
other promising sophomore on the
W o 1 v e r i n e Varsity, should be:
Jones' main threat.
Two of the top swimmers for
Michigan State will compete in:the
100-yd. breaststroke. They are
John Dudeck, NCAA and Big Ten
champion, and Paul Reinke, who'
was very impressive in the Olym-
pic trials. The Wolverines' best en-
try in this event is sophomore Cy
Hopkins, who has improved great-
ly over last year.

familiar again to Michigan basketball fans, as Wolverine captain

under way on January 5, when the
Wolverines journey to Indiana.
A preliminary game which will
give fans a look at the freshman
squad will be held on Saturday,
pitting the frosh against the Var-
sity reserves. This will also serve
in part to give the coaches a good
look at their scrubs before they
trim the squad down to 15 men.

Promising Sophomores
Sprinkled among these veterans
are several promising sophomores,
whom Heyliger hopes will provide
the squad with more depth this
winter than has been available in
the past.
"We should be better on defense

this year, but I don't think we'll

The prime reason for Heyliger's

is the addition of sophomore Bar-

There have been rumors that
Howes may not be around for the
entire season, although he has a
year's eligibility left. Howes is
hoping to get his degree at the
end of the first semester, but
whether he will have enough
credits by then is the big question.
If he does, the netminding
chores would go to sophomore Ross
