Special To The Daily
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-
Michigan's hockey team launched
the new WIHL season on a sour
note last night, bowing to Colo-
ado College, 5-4,.in a rough-and-
tumble contest.
The two teams will meet again
tonight for the final time this
season.
A sensational performance was
turned in Wolverine goalie Lorne
Howes, despite the fact that his
kteam lost. He managed 47 saves,
as compared to only 17 by CC'sa
netminder, Howard Viger.
The final three scores were made
by the Blue, as they bounced back
from a 5-1 deficit to make it a
close contest throughout the third
period.
Neil McDonald scored twice for!
the visitors, his first coming at
17:30 of the second period when
.Dick Dunnigan shot from the
boards and the puck hit McDon-
ald's stick and was deflected in.
Hayton from Buchanan .
Sophomore Barrie Hayton was
impressive in netting score num-
'ber three a minute and a half
later, taking a pass from Neil
Buchanan at the blue line and]
blasting the disc into the low right
corner of the cage.
Only good news of the evening'
for the Wolverines was that soph-
omore John Hutton was declared1
'eligible for competition and took
part in the game. There had been
some question of the eligibility of=
Hutton.
Colorado Tough
Michigan has clever been able tol
get better than a split against
ColoradoY and has usually been.
under par in the opening game.
Rough play marked the entire
night's performance, and severall
high-sticking penalties were hand-
ed out. In addition, Michigan
defenseman Bob Schiller was hit
with a 10-minute misconduct rep-
rimand.
Howes was the standout of the
game, and every one of the op-
ponents' goals came when his
team was shorthanded, or on a
close or rebound shot.

SPORT SHORTS
By The Associated Press
Although picking winners is a
risky business at a time when
touring college basketball teams
are facing top-flight competition
almost every night, the Kansas
Jayhawks are a solid first choice
in the second weekly Associated
Press ranking poll of the season.
Kansas drew the first place
votes of 68 of the 93 sports writers
and broadcasters participating in
the poll. That gave the Jayhawks
864 points under the usual scoring
system of 10 for first, 9 for sec-
ond, etc.
Kansas Takes Two
Paced by 7-foot Wilt Chamber-
lain, Kansas took two impressive
decisions from Washington last
week. 77-63 and 92-78, to make it
fou. straight for the season. The
poll is based on results through
last Saturday, Dec. 15.
1. Kansas..........,4-0 864
2. San Francisco .. . .5-0 582
3. North Carolina ....4-0 516

Grid Coach
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (1P)-Ten-
nessee's Bowden Wyatt, who says
this year's undefeated-untied rec-
ord was not his best coaching ef-
fort, yesterday was named college
football's coach of the year.
In the 22nd annual Scripps-
Howard poll of members of the
American Football Coaches Assn.,
Wyatt received 171 first place votes
to 110 for Forest Evashevski of
Iowa's Big Ten champions.
On a 5-3-1 point basis, Wyatt
got 1,229 points to 889 for Evashev-
ski. Lou Little of Columbia was
third and Bud Wilkinson of Okla-
homa, 1949 coach of the year, was
fourth.
Wyatt, whose Tennessee team
won the Southeastern Conference
championship and meets Baylor in
the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans
Jan. 1, said the hard work of his
assistants and his players enabled
him to win the award.
But he said he thought he ac-
tually did a better coaching job
in 1955 when he took over a badly
disorganized Tennessee squad and
tutored it to a fine 6-3-1 season.

By BOB BOLTON
It is probably a very good thing
that the Michigan track team has!
over two months before the Con-
ference indoor championships are
run in Columbus.E
The Wolverine cindermen made
their first public appearance before
a sparse crowd at Yost Field House
last night in the annual intra-!
squad Christmas track meet and
virtually all performances were
well below Big Ten standards.
Coach Don Canham felt that
only seven men turned in better
than average exhibitions.
The big bouquet werit to Cap-
tain Dave Owen. For the second
straight week the powerful senior
sent the shot over 57'.
This mark of 57' is over six feet
better than Owen was throwing
at this time last year. The great
improvement is mostly due to the
fact that he has been practicing
since September while last season
he did not start until after foot-
ball season.
Helmar Dollwet, the junior from
the Saar, was the meet's only
double winner. Dollwet claimed a
first in the mile in 4:25.00 and an-
other in the mile and one-half
with a 7:01.00 clocking.
In the mile Dollwet jumped to
an early lead at the gun and in-
creased it steadily finally winning
by around 50 yards.
Sophomore Jack Green set the
early pace in the mile and one-
half event with Dollwet hanging
about two yards back. On the sixth
lap Green began to tire and the
smooth running German sprinted
ahead.
By the 12th and final lap Doll-
wet had passed several of the
trailing runners and Greene had
fallen to fourth place.
Among the other men who Can-
ham complimented on last night's
efforts were sophomores John
Magnuson, Pete Stanger, Milt
Robinson, Ernie Simms and jun-
ior Robin Varian.
Magnuson turned in a time of
:6.5 in the 60 yd. dash while
Stanger ran well in the hurdles.
Robinson and Simms pushed
Varian to a 1:59.3 effort in the
880 yd. run, finishing second and
third respectively.

Part of the team's relatively un-
impressive performance yesterdayI
was due to the fact that several
veterans were absent or hampered
with injury. Among these were,
quarter-milers Dick Flodin and
Bob Rudesill and hurdler Fred
Potter.
Over the Christmas vacatio n
several members of the squadt th1

Meet sponsored by the University

ketball crown and extend victory
streak to 55.
In college basketball, it's hard
to win every game. Teams visit
odd-shaped gymnasiums, hooting
crowds, long road trips. This didn't
bother the Phil Woolpert-coached
Dons, who were invincible. Led by
Bill Russell, a 6'10" center, San
Francisco couldn't be stopped.
September 27-The end of the
road for The Babe. Universally
proclaimed as the greatest woman
athlete of the century, Mildred
Didricksen Zaharias finally fell
victim to her most formidable
opponent-cancer.
October 8-Don Larsen pitches
first World; Series perfect game.
The batter was Dale Mitchell, a
dangerous, if aging pinch-hitter.
The ball zoomed plateward. Mit-
chell looked. The umpire motioned
with his right hand.
27 batters . . . all retired. Per-
fect. One of those stories with an
odd twist. Larsen, 27 years old,
was better than some, worse than

others during his otherwise medi-
ocre career.
November 30-Floyd Patterson
becomes new king of the heavy-
weights. It was Young Floyd
against Ancient Archie Moore at
Chicago that night. The title
had bean vacated by Rocky Mar-
ciano, who retired from the ring
on April 27.
The fifth round ...Patterson
found the mark with a wildleft
hook, and the end was in sight for
Moore. Only 21 years old, Patter-
son should give zest to a sport
which badly needs it.
December 7 - Russia clinches
"unofficial team victory" at Mel-
bourne. It was a bitter pill to
swallow for the United States.
Russia, after conceding points to
the Americans in track and field,
proceeded to pile up a record-
breaking total in the so-called
minor sports.
Uncle Sam, used to an easy time
of it in Olympic competition, was
forced to relinquish its worldwide
athletic supremacy, for four years,
at least.

wolverine Cagers Seek
Victory over Kent State

By DON DRESCHER
In their fifth start of the sea-
son, the Michigan basketball squad
will oppose Kent State at 8:00 p.m.
tonight at the Yost field house.
The Wolverines go into tonight's
encounter with a record of two
wins and two losses. The Kent
State squad has a slight edge in
experience with six games already
behind it.
'M' Has Height Advantage
Although Michigan will have an
advantage in height, the Kent
State team is not small. The prob-
able starting lineup for the Golden
Flashes will be: center, Larry Ed-
munds (6'5"); forwards, Ron Birt
(6'3") and Bill Benes (6'2"); and
at guards Jim Gorsline (6'2") and
Bill Raybuck (6'2").
Birt, a junior, promises to be one
of the key men in the visitor's at-
tack. He has an accurate shot
from both in court and out and
is a good rebounder. They will also
count heavily on Gorsline who was
one of the leading scorers for the
Golden Flashes last year.
Five Juniors Start
The Kent Staters are a young
ball club. The entire first squad is
composed of underclassmen with
the first string being comprised of
five juniors.
Last year coach Dave McDowell's
squad placed fifth in the Mid-
American conference. This is Kent

State's first encounter with a Big
Ten opponent.
Admission to the game is free
for students who present an I-D
card.

Swimmers To Meet N. Carolina St.

By CARL RISEMAN
The Michigan swimming team
will face its initial test of the sea-
son when it plays host to North
Carolina-State on January 2 and
to the Big Ten Relays on Januaryt
5.
North Carolina State is rankedt
as one of the top swimming squads
in the nation. Last year they fin-
ished fifth in the NCAA swimming
meet and boast many returning
lettermen.-
The Big Ten Relays will include
swimming teams from Michigan
State, North Carolina State, Iowa
State, Ohio State, Kenyon College,
and Michigan. Wisconsin and In-
diana also are probable entries.
Wolf pack Undefeated
The North Carolina State Wolf-
pack holds a 2-0 record thus far
this year with smashing victories
over South Carolina and Duke,
and hopes to retain its Atlantic
Coast Conference championship
which it shared with North Caro-
lina last year.
Dick Fadgen, Dave McIntyre,4
and Frank Nauss are the stars of
the squad, and rank with the best
swimmers in collegiate competi-
tion.
Dick Fadgen is the NCAA
,' champion in the 200-yard breast
stroke and 200-yard butterfly, the
national AAU indoor and outdoor
breast stroke champion and win-
ner of seven national individual
championships. « _

Fadgen was also first alternate
on the Olympic team in breast
stroke competition.
Dave McIntyre made the first
team AAU All-America in the 100-
yard free style, and is holder of
the school records of :22.5 for the
50 and :49.7 for the 100. The Big
Ten record for the 50 is :22.1 and
:49.5-for the 100.
Frank Nauss placed fourth in
the NCAA and national AAU meets
in the 440.
'M' Prospects Untested
The status of the Michigan squad
is uncertain at present. Cy Hop-
kins and Dick Mehl are excellent
sophomore prospects but are un-
tested in collegiate meets.

Senior Fritz Meyers has been
swimming exceptionally well in
practice. However, Coach Stager
will not have his team at full
strength until the second semester.
Some of the swimmers are still
ineligible.
Second Annual Meet
This will be the second annual
Big Ten Relays. Last year, MSU
was the host. In accordance with
Big Ten rules, there will be no
team scores.
Michigan State and Ohio State
will present fairly strong teams.
Iowa State should not be as
strong as it was last year, since it
lost a number of lettermen through
graduation.
