penalties, six in the opening frame,
being handed out.
Both teams struck quickly. Mich-
igan opened the tallying at 3:01
when center Don McIntosh slapped
at the puck just barely over the
Toronto blue line. It bounced when
it got about halflway to the cage,
then caromed through the legs of
the dazed Dunn, who played in
place of Toronto's goalie of Sat-
urday night, Al Cecutti.
But less than a minute later, the
blue-shirted Canadians retaliated,
perhaps in more spectacular a
Their forward line of Brian,

Anderson, Grant Mills and Ken
Linseman roared down the ice,
flipping the puck back and forth
until the last possible second, when
Anderson took a perfect pass on
the left side and poked it past the
helpless Howes.
Toronto Defense Tough
For a brief period after this, the
play was relatively even, with both
goal-tenders shining on several
saves. The Toronto defense soon
stiffened, however, and from then
until late in the third period, it
was almost all in their favor.
Just before the two-minute mark
of the second period, Anderson
had a tremendous opportunity in
front of the Michigan net from
10 feet out, but Howes did a quick
sit-down to prevent the lead
Not to be outdone, however,
Anderson grabbed the disk from
a center-ice mixup and bolted in
from the left side to put his team
ahead, catching the far corner of
the cage on a perfect shot.
Outstanding Saves
Toronto pressed constantly after
this, with Howes dropping to make
several outstanding saves. But the
Wolverines couldn't seem to get a
sustained offensive threat together
until their stunning last-period
surge took place.
Howes,; at times almost incred-
ible, turned aside 30 shots, to
Dunn's 22.
Cubs, Cards
Swap 10 Men
In NL Trade
C H I C A G O (P)-The Chicago
Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals com-
pleted a 10-player deal yesterday
involving front-line pitchers Sam
Jones and Tom Poholsky.
The transaction was expected to
set off a chain-reaction of deals
which have been hanging fire at
the major league meetings.
Only First Trade
In what John Holland, vice pres-
ident of the Cubs described as
"only the first of several deals we
have in mind," Chicago obtained
catcher Ray Katt, relief pitcher
Jackie Collum and infielder Wally
Lammers along with Poholsky.
The Cardinals acquired south-
paw Jim Davis, catcher Hobie
Landrith and utility player Eddie
Miksis along with Jones, who
pitched a no-hit game against
Pittsburgh May 12, 1955. In ad-
dition, the Cubs will get'twp play-
ers from the Cards' triple A farm
clubs by March 1.

To Twice Def
Even after a bad weekend by the
record, Michigan's three basket-
ball headliners, George Lee, M. C.
Burton, and Ron Kramer, had
nothing to be ashamed of.
All three played well in the two
losing causes, and therefore lend
hope for better things to come. E
Burton Flustered
Burton had a somewhat slow
night scoring against Wichita, but
came back strong at Nebraska.
"They had him pretty well scouted
Friday night and played him real
tight," said coach Bill Perigo. "I!
think he got a bit flustered from
lack of experience."
Lee played well in both games.
Perigo feels that Lee is beginning
to get the feel of his guard posi-
tion, but now he isn't sure that
he can leave him there. "We're go-
ing to be experimenting this
week", he said. "Lee has been do-
ing a fine job outside, but I'm be-
ginning to think we'll have to
move him inside."
Perigo hasn't been getting the

'eated Basketball Squad

results he's wanted from his un-
derneath men and he figures that
Lee's height and scoring ability
will be of more advantage there.
"Of course, that will give me a
problem at guard," he said.

BOTTOMS UP-An unidentified Toronto player lies upended in the background as Michigan de-
fenders Neil Buchanan (11) and Ed Switzer (17) move in to help goalie Lorne Howes clear the puck
from near the Wolverine net. The action took place last night as Michigan tied Toronto, 2-2, at
the Coliseum.
Bears Drop Cards from Eastern Race,
To Meet Lions for NFL Western Crown

As for the performance of Kra-
mer - "He was the difference in
there Friday night", said Perigo.
"Without him they would have
run all over us."
Saturday, Kramer, along with
the whole team suffered from a
chain of unusual circumstances,
which made playing basketball a
rather difficult thing to do.
Kramer had gotten up Satur-
day morning at 5:00 to catchy a
plane to New York where he was
to attend the Look Magazine All-
American banquet. When he ar-
rived at the airport, he learned
that his plane had been grounded.
Team Grounded
The rest of the Wolverines fol-
lowed an hour and a half later to
find themselves in the same fix.
"We sat in the plane about three
hours waiting for them to get it
de-iced," said Perigo. '
Kramer's plane never left so he
had Joined the group again. At
Kansas City they had to wait for
a train which finally took them
as far as Union, Nebraska, and it
was 40 miles overland by bus from
Four Foul Out
Perigo feels the tiredness was
a major factor in the Nebraska
loss and pointed to the four men
who fouled out, Kramer, Jim
Shearen, Pete Tillotson, and Ran-
dy Tarrier, as proof.
Foul shooting, the old Wolver-
ihe nemesis, also took its toll.
Michigan only hit for .500 in the
Wichita game and .619 against
Nebraska. "It hurt us badly," said
Perigo. "We should hit up near
.700 if we want to win."

.. averts 'M' defeat

In the "do or die" battle for
both Chicago teams of the Nation-.
al Football League, Sunday, the
Bears edged the Cards, 10-3.
The Bear victory set the stage
for next week's showdown with the
Detroit Lions who are currently
leading the Western Division and
knocked the Cardinals out of con-
tention in the race for the Eastern
Division title.
Fans, Player$ Fight
The annual roughhouse between
the two windy city squads was
highlighted by a free for all in the
closing minutes of the game which
found the fans as well as the play-
ers expressing their emotions with
A blocked Cardinal field goal
attempt on their 45 set up the only
touchdown of the game.
From that point, the Bears'
crushing running attack led by

fullback Rick Casares and half-
back J. C. Caroline powered the
pigskin into the Qardinal end-
Two Card touchdown runs by
sensational halfback Ollie Matson,
one for 83 yds. and another for
65 were called back because of
Lions Roar
After the first three minutes
of the Motor City game, there were
no doubts left in the minds of the
Detroit fans because the Lions had
jumped to a 14-0 lead over the
Pittsburgh Steelers by capitalizing
on two Steeler fumbles.
The game quickly became a rout
with the final score being Detroit,
45, Pittsburgh, 7.

O'Connell Rallies Offense
Quarterback Tom O'Connell, who
the Browns picked up after George
Ratterman and Babe Parelli were
sidelined with injuries, put some
life into the previously sputtering
Brown offermse.
O'Connell scored two tallies on
quarterback sneaks and passed to
fullback Fred Morrison for the
final one.
Sam Baker, whose talented toe
has been the difference between
victory and defeat on many oc-
casions for the Washington Red-
skins this season, kept them in
contention for the Eastern Divis-
ion crown by booting a 21-yd. field
goal with 25 seconds left to give
the Skins a 19-17 win over the'
Philadelphia Eagles.

White Sox Owner Dies 1
C H I C A G O-Grace Comiskey,
president of the Chicago White
Sox, died suddenly yesterday in
her apartment.
Death to the head of baseball's
pioneerinng family apparently was
caused by a heart seizure. She had
been in poor health ever since suf-
fering a serious heart attach in
March of 1950.
Mrs. Comiskey was in her late
60's. She seldom attended White
Sox games but she was the club's
absolute boss and ruled with an
iron hand.

USSR Takes Olympic Team Point Title
With Victories in Wrestling, Gymnastics
i 10trleS1H rS 1RHlRRII4S

After suffering what to them
was a humiliating defeat in the
1952 Olympic Games, the Soviet
Union has spent the last four
years in intense preparation for
the recent Games at Melbourne.
The Russian athletes ri ere not
to be denied either. Aftertrailing
in the unofficial team point totals
for top honors for most of the
Games, the Russians spurted in
the last few days of competition
and walked away with the mythi-
cal team title.
Australia Third
The USSR completely dominat-
ed the gymnastics, wrestling and
women's events. Final point totals
gave the Soviet Union 722 com-
pared to the U.S.'s 593.
Australia, lead by its great
swimming team finished third, far
behind the top two with 278%/
In the summary of Olympic
medals, Russia garnered 99, while
the United States had 77. Of these

great efforts in the Olympics,

Morrow was the only triple

in the 100- .and 200-meter dashes,
and anchoring the world record

Rose was a double medal winner
