Trackrmen Face

Renfrew To Leave




Will Coach Wolverine Icers


Canham Pedicts OSU Will Win
Unless Pace, Flodin Can Top Davis



"If Michigan can beat Ohio
State's Glenn Davis, we will take
the meet."
So said track coach Don Can-
ham about the coming meet this
afternoon with Ohio State at Col-
umbus. Az Canham has it figured,
r the difference in team points will
be about twenty points if Olym-
pic star Glenn Davis performs at
his usual standards.
Paossible Victories
However, if Jim Pace beats Da-
vis in the 100-yd. dash, and if
Dick Flodin beats him in the 220-
yd. event, the Wolverines have a
. Besides the possible dash vic-
tories Canham expects to take
only four other firsts. He picks
Helmai Dollwet and Geert Keil-
strup to finish 1-2 in the mile.
In the shot put Canham looks
for at least eight points. Captain
Dave Owen will win the event fol-
lowed by Ron Kramer, who did
so well for Michigan two weeks
ago in the triangular meet against
Western Michigan and Marquette.,
Brendan O'Reilly is figured to
come back after last week's "bad
day" performance against Illinois

and take the high jump, but after
O'Reilly, unless Kramer jumps
better than he has so far this sea-
son, the Wolverines will get no
other points in the event.
Michigan is also favored to take
the two mile run. Dollwet is slated
for first and Keilstrup for third.
OSU 75, IM' 57
According to Canham's pre-z
meet predictions the final score
of the meet will show Ohio State
75, Michigan 57. He goes on fur-
ther to predict that the strong
Buckeyes will take the Conference
crown at Evanston next weekend.
As far asMichigan goes, Can-
ham says that we will be lucky
to finish in the first division at
Three men who Canham had
counted on to place in the Big Ten
meet and in today's meet are ham-
pered by injuries.
Magnuson Out
John Magnuson, who came into
prominence by finishing fourth in
the 60-yd. dash in the indoor fi-
nals, is still seriously hindered by
a leg injury which he aggravated
by running at Illinois last week.
A healthy Magnuson could have
been counted on for at least a
third against the Buckeyes.
The other injured Wolverines
are Dick Flodin and Jack Green.
Flodin, who must beat Davis if
Michigan is to have a chance, suf-
fered cuts when he fellat Illinois
and he might not be able to equal
his top performances.
Green, who Canham was count-
ing on for a second in the two
mile is still out of action with
pulled abdomen muscles and pro-
bably will not run until next year.

"Keep it in the family" seems
to be the motto at Michigan when
it comes to appointing new
The motto works in two ways in
the case of Allan N. Renfrew who
was named Wednesday to succeed
Vic Heyliger as Michigan hockey
coach. Renfrew, a hockey star for
Michigan in 1946-49, is not only
a member of the Michigan "fam-
ily", but also a member of Hey-
liger's family-Heyliger and Ren-
frew are brothers-in-law.
Firm Statement
Athletic Director H. O. "Fritz"
Crisler announced that Renfrew
has been recommended to fill the
post vacated by Heyliger on April
10 to the University Regents by
the Board in Control of Intercol-
legiate Athletics for approval.
The Regents are not expected
to meet until next month. How-
ever, Crisler made the firm state-
ment that "Renfrew will be coach
next season."
Crisler added that "We are very
forunate to get him."
Renfrew will come to Ann Ar-
bor next month from the Univer-
sity of North Dakota where he

has been hockey coach for the
past year. His team finished third
in the Western Intercollegiate
Hockey League this season behind
Colorado College and Michigan.
From 1951 until the conclusion
of the 1955 hockey season, the
32-yr.-old Renfrew coached the
sport of flashing blades at Michi-
gan Tech. While at Tech, he was
faced with the arduous task of re-
Rebuilding Done 0
After two years in the second
division in the WIHL, his team
finished fourth and in the next
season of play, it moved into the
runner-up spot.
The Huskies also finished sec-
ond best to Michigan in the NCAA
finals in 1955, losing to the Wol-
verines, 7-5, in the final game of
the series held at the Broadmoor
in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Renfrew was a member of
Michigan's first NCAA title win-
ner in 1948 and was a member of
the highest scoring forward lines
in Michigan ice history during his
playng career. His coach, none
other than Heyliger.
Began Coaching in '51
Following his graduation from

the College of Education in 1949,
Renfrew spent two years as a
salesman for an Ann Arbor con-
cern before picking up the coach-
ing reins at Tech in 1951. In 1956,
he moved to the University of
North Dakota at Grand Forks as
ice tutor.
The Nodaks won 13 and lost 9
games in league play to finish
third and established an over-all
mark of 18 victories and 11 losses.
Reached at his home in Grand
Forks, Renfrew told The Daily
that he was "thrilled" about the
,appointment and that "it will cer-
tainly be nice to get back to Ann
He added, "I have a big pair of
shoes to fill."

TWIN VICTORY NEEDED - According to coach Don Canham
if Michigan is to win today's track meet with Ohio State at Col-
umbus a double victory will be needed from distance man Helmar
Dollwett in the one and two mile events.

Drive with care ... everywhere I





Today, as everyone knows, is the forty-sixth anni-
versary of the founding of Gransmire College for Women
which, as everyone knows, was the first Progressive
Education college in the United States.
Well do I recollect the tizzy in the academic world
'when Gransmire first opened its portals! What a buzz
there was, what a brouhaha in faculty common rooms,
what a rattling of teacups, when Dr. Agnes Thudd Siga-
foos, first president of Gransmire, lifted her shaggy head
and, announced defiantly, "This here is no stuffy, old-
fashioned college. This here, by gum, is Progressive
Education. We will teach the student; not the course.
There will be no marks, no exams, no requirements. We
will break thie iron mold of orthodoxy, hey."
Well sir, forward-lookingmaidens all over the counitry
cast off their fetters and came rushing to New Hampshire
to enroll at Gransmire. Here they found freedom. They
broadened their vistas. They lengthened their horizons.
They unstopped their bottled personalities. They roamed
the campus in togas, leading ocelots on leashes.
And, of course, they smoked Philip Morris. (I say
"of course." Why do I say "of course"? I say "of course"
because it is a matter of course that anyone in search
of freedom should naturally turn to Philip Morris, for
Philip Morris is a natural smoke, with no filter to get
in the way of its true tobacco taste.)
But all was not Philip Morris and ocelots. There was
work and study too - not in the ordinary sense, for there
were no formal classes. Instead there was a broad
approach to enlarging each girl's potentials.
Take, for example, the course called B.M.S. (Basic
Motor Skills). B.M.S. was divided into L.D.. (Lying
Down), S.U. (Standing Up) and W. (Walking). Once
the student had mastered L.D. and S.U., she was taught
to W. - but not just to W. any old way ! No, sir!I She
was taught to W. with poise, dignity, bearing! To incul-
cate a sense of balance in the girl, she began her exercises
by walking with a suitcase in each hand. (One girl, Mary
Ellen Dorgenicht, got so good at it that today she is bell
captain at the Dinkler-Plaza Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.)
When the girls had walking under their belts, they
were allowed to dance. Again no formality was imposed.
They were simply told to fling themselves about in any
way their impulses dictated, and believe you me, it was
quite an impressive sight to see them go bounding into
the woods with their togas flying. (Several later joined
the U. S. Forestry Service.)
There was also a lot of finger painting and gourd
rattling and sculpture with coat hangers and all like that.

Here's an interesting way to
test a summer shirt for cool-
ness. Have your friends truss
you up like a barbecued pig
and put you on a spit. Then
have them light a roaring fire
underneath you. Then get
somebody to keep turning you,
slowly and deliberately, over
the crackling flames. Do you
feel the heat? Do annoying
beads of perspiration break
out on your forehead and neck?
Are you uncomfortable? Does
your collar wilt, wrinkle and
curl? In fact, do you generally
dislike the test?
If any one of these things
happen, you're not wearing a
Van Heusen Century Sheer,
the summer shirt that's about

the coolest you can buy and
which features the famous
one-piece soft collar that can't
wilt or wrinkle, no matter
how hot or humid it gets.
The- Van Heusen Century
sheer Shirt is the summer ver-
sion of the great Van Heusen
Century Shirt. It's made of
pique, that featherweight, cool-
weave fabric, launders beau-
tifully and (we repeat) it's
impossible to wrinkle its
collar. Takes no starch either,
so it's always soft and com-
fortable. See it at your campus
haberdasher. He's got the
Van Heusen Century Sheer
in several collar styles. $4.00.

lov es to cut lo os e and cover the miles!

If you're looking for a real "escape artist,"
a car that loves to step out and get
away from it all-well, it just happens
that Chevy was born with that urge.
If there ever was a car that loved to
cut loose and cover the miles, it's this
.,.moo Vn+-;0

--not with Chevrolet's high-perform-
ance V8 on the pulling end. You've got
up to 245* horsepower here for the
biggest helping of driving pleasure found
in the low-price field!
