Traditional Slow Start
SLOW STARTS for the Michigan hockey team seem to be as muchE
of a tradition as the sport itself in-Ann Arbor.
This year is no exception, especially for Michigan seniors, who
for the last four hockey seasons have watched Vic Heyliger's squads
struggle to win their early-season games. History has told us many
times that Michigan has been able to recover every year to make the
NCAA playoffs each March at Colorado Springs.
In fact, in nine years of the playoffs Michigan has never missed
attending. And six times the Wolverines have returned as national
collegiate champions.I
Why then- is Michigan again in ice turned to hot water as it
strives to finish at least second in the Western Intercollegiate Hockey
League standings and gain the familiar playoff berth?
Onemain reason is that in the
past few years the WIHL has been~
gaining in overall strength. Wit-
ness the rise of Michigan Tech to
a hockey power. While Minnesota
has lost some of its long time
dominance. C o 1 o r a d o College,

Special To TeliCDaily
Bloomington, Ind.-Dick Neal,
a senior forward for Indiana who
had never started a basketball
game for the Hoosiers prior to
yesterday afternoon's c o n t e s t,
scored 22 points as the Wolve-
rines dropped their Big Ten op-
ener, 73-68.
Michigan jumped to an early
6-2 lead but soon lost it and with
ten minutes left in the first half
the Hoosiers had pulled way in
front of the Wolverine cagers,
22-9. At half-time. Michigan
closed the gap to 34-28.
II No Accuracy
The Wolverines had control of
the backboards in the first half
but shooting, both from the floor
and from the free-throw line, was
weak.
Michigan emerged from the
locker room after half-time and
went on to play a much improved
game. On three buckets by Ron
Kramer and a field goal by George
Lee, the Wolverine quintet
brought the game to a 38-38 tie
after four minutes of play.
Thoughout the second half, the
two squads tied eight times and
scoring seesawed back and forth.
With just three minutes left in
the game, the Wolverines took a
63'-62 lead.
Robin~soni Says,'
'I'm Too Old';
Quits Baseball
NEW YORK (A')-Jackie Robin-
son, writing in a first-person,
copyrighted story to appear in
next Tuesday's issue of Look Maga-
zine says he is "quitting baseball
for good" because "I have to think
of the future and the security of
my family."
Robinson, who broke baseball's!
color line and became one of the
game's greatest stars with the
Brooklyn Dodgers, said he reached
his decision before being traded to
the New York Giants by the Brooks
last Dec. 13.
In the Look article, titled "Why
I'm Quitting Baseball," Jackie said
"I couldn't tell Mr. (Horace)
Stoneham (owner of the Giants)
I was through with baseball for-
ever because I had agreed long
ago to write this story-when the
time came-exclusively for Look.
And as a matter of fact, I was
working on the story when Mr.
Stoneham called" to tell him of
the trade.
"I'm quitting baseball for good,"
Robinson writes, "and there
shouldn't be any mystery about
my reasons. I'm 38 years old with
a family to support. I've got to
think of the future and our secur-
ity."
Robinson, who broke into base-
ball with the Dodgers' minor
league farm club at Montreal in
1946, added:
"At my age a man doesn't have
much future in baseball and very
little security."

In an effort to gain control of
the ball. Michigan foul.ed and
Indiana capitalized on the free
throws..After gaining control of
the ball. Jim Shearon and, Pete
Tillotson each hit once but once
again the Wolverines fouled and
the Hoosiers made their free
throws good.
Holding a 71-68 lead in the
last few seconds of the game, In-
diana stamped the seal of victory
on the game as 6' 8" center Arnie
Dees let go a shot that swished
the net just as the buzzer sounded
to boost his .game total of points
scored to 26.
Kramer was high scorer for the
Maize and Blue with 22, sophomore
guard Jack Lewis hit ,'for 13
points, followed by Tillotson who
scored 12.
Face MSU Tomorrow,
Michigan hit from the free
throw line only 46 percent of the
time, while the Hoosiers were
clipping along at a 76 per cent
pace.
Indiana's Neal scored five of
his 22 points in the last three
minutes of the contest and hit
eight out of nine charity tosses
throughout the game.
The Michigan cagers will travel
to East Lansing tomorrow to play
their second Big Ten tilt of the
season against the Spartans.

HAND-IN-HAND with being a champion, too, is that the law of
averages is bound to catch up with you . . . sometime.
Add to this a hindering leg injury to goalie Lorne Howes and a
couple of tough losses out West and you have the story of another
rugged start. There is also the possibility that Howes may be able
to graduate at the end of this semester.
Does this look like Michigan's year to be in trouble? The Wolver-
ines already are. To compensate for the six points lost in the League
standings, another very strong finish is going to be a must. AlsoI
the other leading teams are going to have to knock each other off at
the right time. It has happened before.
For the traditional chain not to be broken it is going to have to
happen again. The return in February of forward Wally Maxwell
and defenseman Mike Buchanan plus the possible eligibility of first
semester sophomores that Heyliger may want to use should strengthen,
a few links for the long pull ahead.

Fred Mowery, Cy Hopkins, and

By BOB BOLTON
If you are captain of a football'
team you discuss rules with offi-
cialsrand call the flip of a coin
before the game.
If you are captain of a hockey
team you talk over penalties with'
the referees.
But what do you do if you are
captain of a track team?'
A Helping Hand'
If you are Dave Owen. the cur-
rent Michigan track captain, for
one thing you throw a 16-lb. lead
ball as far as anyone in the history'
of the school--maybe even a bit
farther. For another you are al-
ways around to lend a helping
hand to the younger team mem-
bers who participate in the shot'
put, an event which combines brute
power and smooth coordination.
The rest of your duties as cap-I
tain of the Michigan cindermen
are intangibles-they are hard to'
define. It is your job to lead. to
inspire in your teammates the
qualities which have made you
Big Ten indoor and outdoor titlist
four straight times.
The above duties might very_
well be beyond the capabilities of
the ordinary trackman but Dave
Owen is far from the ordinary.
Hard Work, Determination
Michigan track Coach Don Can-
ham sums up his star this way
"He is just a tremendous guy and
Whatever success he has is strictly
due to his own hard work and
determination."
Hard work and determination is
the story of Dave Owen. Since
September the 20-yr.-old senior
has spent about 16 hours a week
down at Yost Field House.

Sometimes he lifts weights toi
strengthen his body but most of
the time he stands in a circle that
is seven feet in diameter. Once in
the circle Dave seems to be com-
pletely wrapped in a world of his
own.
An Old Friend
He tucks the shot under his
chin, almost tenderly as if it were
an old friend. Then his face locks
with tension, his muscles bulgeI
with strain, he spins half way{
around, takes one lunging step and
lets the shot go.
The distance he throws the shot
never fails to impress spectators.
With twomonths still remaining
before the Conference 'indoor
championships Owen has already
thrown over 57' to break the exist-
ing Field House mark.
Charley Fonville, who set the
old mark for Michigan back in
1948, has remarked that Owen has
,the potential to throw at least two
feet farther. With a little improve-
ment Owen could probably reach
60'.
Magic Distance
Sixty feet. the magic distance

which all shot putters strive
but during the history of the ex
only three have managed to rea
Canham thinks Dave will beco
the fourth, maybe this year.
And even if Owen doesn't rep
the "distance" this year there
always the future. Dave still1
a lot of good throws left before
tucks his shot away.
After graduation there is1
armed forces and then there isc
other dream besides the 60' sl
Dave would like to make c(
true, and that is Rome andi
