Michigan Sports Weekend
This Friday and Saturday the Athletic Department will hold its annual winter sports gala
"Michigan Sports Weekend." All Wolverine sports teams are scheduled at home


Last night in the jam-packed
Coliseum, the Detroit Red Wings
amused the crowd and themselves
1 and they literally "slid" to a one-
sided victory, 13-2.
Yesterday's snowfal did not in
the least hamper the attendance
at the game, as thousands of fans
squeezed together to makeroom
for "just one more."
The professionals put on a daz-
zling display of hockey as they
rolled upa record margin of vic-
tory. The gam also had sadness
j for the Wolverines in another
Buchanan Injured
Defenseman Mike Buchanan suf-
fered a possible cartilage injury
in his leg, and, was on crutches
after the game. More detail of his
injury will be known today, Add
this to the leg injury suffered by
Tom Eendall who did not see
action last night, and Michigan
could be in serious shape upon
resumption of league play.
Coach Vic Heyliger took the op-
portunity presented by the game
to experiment with several fresh-
men. Particularly outstanding was
Bob White, who with a little more
experience should prove a valuable
asset to the Wolverines next year.
Just before the itart of the
game, the Red Wings "name" play-
ers were handing out autographs
to many of -the youngsters in at-
There was a touch of glamour
and excitement throughout the
game, particularly when all-stars
Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe
skated on the ice. Howe, with his
smooth skating and daring stick
handling, was one of the stars of
the game, scoring two goals and
making two assists.
Childs Sparkles .
Special mention should be made
of Michigan goalie, Ross Childs,
who made some remarkable saves,
and despite the high number of
goals scored against him, drew
many raves from the crowd. He
chalked up 45 saves in all.
The first Michigan goal did not
come 'until midway in the second

period when Gary Starr bounced
a rebound into the nets, unassisted
on the play.
With beautiful skating, and an
assist to Neil McDonald and Dick
Dunnigan, Ed Switzer outraced
the Red Wing refense and scored
the second Michigan goal at 3:33
of the third period.
Wilson 'Crowd-Pleaser'
Both goals came off "crowd-'
pleaser" Lefty Wilson, who, with
his cowboy hat and cigar, carried
on a constant chatter both with,
the players and the fans from his
position in the net. Throughoutj
the third period the crowd did not:
know whether to watch the action
in the Michigan zone or to watch
the antics of Wilson at the other
end of the ice.
To mention each of the goals
which Detroit scored would sound
somewhat monotonous, for in re- .
cording their most decisive win in'
this colorful series, the Red Wings
were able to tally at will. At one
point in the first period, the De-
troiters scored three goals within
one minute.

Dittmer to Tigers
DETROIT-The Detroit Tigers
picked up second baseman Jack
Dittmer from the Milwaukee
Braves yesterday and said he will
be used as infield insurance.
"It's a protection deal," said
John McHale, director of player
personnel for the Tigers. "We
don't think he can beat out Frank
Bolling at second base, but he will
be given that chance. He's a left-
handed hitter. We needed more of
that in our infield."
The Tigers gave up outfielder
Chick King, who was at Charles-
ton last season, and another
player to be selected by June 15.
Rosen Quits
NEW YORK-Urging big league
ballplayers to prepare themselves
for retirement, Al Rosen officially
quit baseball yesterday, but he
said "the Cleveland fans had
nothing to do with it."
"For what the Indians were pay-
ing me every year, they could have
booed me all day and night," said

The list of undefeate social

was reduced from 21 to 15 as a
result of last night's activity at th e
I-M building.
Looking most impressive was
Sigma Chi, which stressed team-
work and scoring balance as it
romped to a 60-10 win over Delta
Chi. Mary Nyren tallied 17 points
and John Wylie and Joe McKoan
scored 14 apiece for the victors.
Alpha Tau Omega won one the
hard way, coming from behind to
edge Kappa Alpha Psi, 37-32. Fred
Warner contributed 14 ATO points.
Sigma Nu got scoring help from
John Larson, 13 points, in the
first half and Bob Groff, 12 points,
in the second to beat Chi Psi,
John Zachary netted 19 as Sig-
ma Alpha Epsilon whipped Theta
Xi, 55-25. Stan Alfred showed the
way with 15 points, as Zeta Beta
Tau toppled Kappa Sigma, 51-30.
Delta Upsilon, paced by Jim

Meyers' 22 scores, coasted past
Trigon, 63-23..
However, the night's most ex-
citing action was not produced
by the unbeaten powers. Alpha
Delta Phi and Psi Upsilon traded
points until the last few seconds,
when Jim Thurman scored three
to give Alpha Delta Phi a 27-25
decision. Thurman ended up with
12 points.
John Drozd of Phi Kappa Sig-
ma emerged high scorer in last
night's 17-game slate, scoring 23
in his team's 65-22 smashing vic-
tory over Theta Chi.
In other games, Alpha Epsilon
Pi outscored Tau Kappa Epsilon,
42-32; Phi Gamma Delta out-
classed Zeta Psi, 64-17; Sigma Phi

One Of Nation's Leading Electronic
R & D Companies To Interview
Engineering, Physics, Math Majors




Unusual opportunities for rapid
professional growth and advance-
ment at Melpar, Inc., one of the
Nation's leading electronic research
and development organizations, will

ing, math and physics majors in a
series of interviews to be held on
campus soon.
A subsidiary of Westinghouse Air
Brake Company, Melpar is now en-
gaged in a program of expansion
involving substantial increases in
staff and facilities.

Despite Melpar's rapid expansion,
the highest standards of personnel
selection are constantly main-
tained. This selective process has
produced a vigorous organization
of great experience and competence
in all fields of electronics.
Younger men who wish to apply
their engineeririg knowledge to
problems of a variedandtchalleng-
ing nature are required to Aill im-
portant posts in Melpar project
groups. Plan to interview the Mel-
par representative when he visits
your campus.

Grads Go To,
Work At Once
The college or university graduate
who joins Melpar is not required to
undergo a formal training pro-
gram. Instead, he immediately be-
comes a member of a project group
and is assigned to work with an
experienced engineer whose guid-
ance and assistance enable him to
advance rapidly. Members of Mel-
par project groups gain experience
in af phases of engineering prob-
lems by free and frequent inter-
change of ideas during group meet-
ings. Such experience is valuable
in leading to eventual managerial

!Melpar Experiences
Sure & Steady Growth
Founded in 1945, Melpar has
doubled in size every 18 months for
the past 11 years. Recently it com-
pleted erection of a complete new
headquarters laboratory near the
Nation's Capital, and is presently
making substantial additions to its
Watertown, Mass. laboratory (6
miles west of Boston), and to its
research department in Boston.
Located on a 44-acre landscaped
tract in Fairfax County, Virginia,
only 10 miles from Washington,
D. C., Melpar's 'nain laboratories
encompass over 265,000 square feet
under a single roof. Fully air-con-
ditioned, they are equipped with
every facility. In addition to the
new, ultra-modern headquarters
plant, Melpar maintains additional
facilities in Arlington, Virginia,
Boston and Watertown, Massachu-
setts, for a total of 460,000 square
University Courses
Offered at Melpar
Melpar staff members, both,holders
and non-holders of degrees, may
take advantage of the many fully-
accredited courses in engineering
subjects which are offered at Mel-
par's headquarters laboratory.
Qualified Graduates
Offered Paid
Inspection Trips
After a personal interview on their
campus, qualified candidates may
be invited to visit Melpar's head-
quarters laboratory at Company
expense. Information on opportu-

At Melpar there is no waiting
period for "automatic" advance-
ment. Instead, an engineer, regard-
less of his age or tenure, may move
ahead as rapidly as his skill and
performance dictate. Each engi-
neer's achievement is reviewed at

least twice a year. In this manner
engineers deserving advancement
can be quickly "spotted" and pro-
moted. As soon as an engineer is
ready for more complex responsi-
bilities they are given him.
