ON -HOCKEY GAMES
Wisconsin and Waterston Games Are
Indefinitely Postponed Because
of Warm Weather
VARSITY SQUAD MADE UP
OF LAST YEAR'S VETERANS
Because of unprecedented weather
conditions, the hockey games, sched-
uled with the Waterstons, of Detroit,
for tonight and the University of Wis-
consin, Friday and Saturday nights,
have been indefinitely postponed. It
has been impossible to make ice at the
Coliseum since the early part of the
holidays and the existing surface is
useless for a hard game.
Wisconsin Meets Up State Team
Wisconsin is billed to meet the
Michigan College of Mines at Hough-
ton, Jan. 21 and 22. The Miners have
the advantage of several weeks of in-
tensive training,being on the ice for
several workouts before the Christmas
recess and since then have played sev-
eral practice contests with the Port-
age Lake and Calumet sextetes of the
.A. A. H. A. It is the claim of the
Copper country press that the students
have developed a remarkably fast
team, one that has held their more ex-
perienced opponents Ain a creditable
manner. Just what Wisconsin will be
able to do with M. C. M. is something
of a problem. The Cardinals have been
playing the game as a varsity sport
for several years and in that time
have met some of the best independent
and club teams of northern Wison-
sin , and Minnesota. The experience
gained in these battles and the confid-
ence that is the result of this experi-
ence makes the team formidable.
Michigan Veterans in Lineup
. It has been impossible to get a
line on the men that will take the
ice for Michigan in the first game.
Several veterans of last year's suc-
cesful team are in school and these
men are being counted upon heavily
to bedr the brunt of the first fe
games. The 1920 forward line is in-
tact and available for service in the
present campaign and in the six man
game, which has been almost univers-
ally adopted throughout the country,
is used here, the Maize and Blue will
be represented by a seasoned aggre-
gation of veterans., For this reason
Manager Fletcher has been unworried
by the lack of preliminary practice,
feeling that the veterans can be re-
pended upon to open the season with
Detroit Teams to Fll In
There is but little chance of play-
ing any of the more important games
on the schedule until after examina-
tions, according to the hockey man-
agement. The match with the Detroit
Waterstons will be played just as soon
as the ice is in condition, but the
Wisconsin game Will have to be mov-
ed toward the end of the season. Sev-
eral Detroit independent teams that
have asked for games with the Wol-
verine outfit will be brought here to
fill the list, it is said.
M THE'S MEN FAILETO
MAKE BESTOF CHINCES
OFF NIGHT COUPLED WITH POOR1
TEAMWORK LOSES SECOND
Inability to hit the basket when the
chances presented themselves and an
off night in general cost Michigan her
second Conference basketball game.
The team was obviously not up to
form and displayed none of the speed
and dash which has been shown In
previous games. Weiss in particular
was off form and repeatedly halted
the teamwork by not co-operating.
The whole team appeared nervous and
failed to score on many easy chances.
Indiana Has Fast Five
No credit can be taken from the In-
diana five, which was one of the fast-
est aggregations that has ever played
here. Michigan was outplayed by the
Hoosiers, but if the Wolverine fAve
had. exhibited the brand of basketball
it showed against Wisconsin, the final
score would have at least been much
Starting the season with two defeats
does not make the outlook encourag-
ing, but in view of the fact that the
season is young and that Michigan
has not as yet hit its stride there is
much room for hope. Championship
hopes could scarce be entertained for
a team which tied for last place last
year. Most encouraging is the im-
provement over previous teams. Mich-
igan is making a steady gain in
strength year by year and this sea-
son has a team which will cause any
of the fives trouble. The disappoint-
ing showing against Indiana, who
came here with a veteran team,
should not be taken as a criterion of
the season's prospects.
Ohio State Here Saturday
Saturday night Ohio State meets
the Wolverines at Waterman gymna-
sium and on Monday Iowa will be the
opponents of Mather's men. Ohio
State lost to Indiana by the same mar-
gin to which the - Wolverines suc-
sumbed. Iowa has met w'ith several.
reverses but has a fighting team. In
both of these contests Michigan will
be able to test her famous come-
back. "Duke" Dunne is training stead-
ily and the big fellow is acquiring an
eye for the basket. If Dunne can
round into form he may be used at
center in the next games.

Twenty-five years ago Wille Hoppe
made his first billiard' shot. Today he
is the greatest billiard player in the
world, and is the youngest man ever
to have won an international' title.
His never nervous, always careful
playing has won for him in 25 years
of almost daily practice the most cov-
eted objective in the billiard world.
Peterson Accompanies Hoppe
