lilinnesota Team, Lead By Pond, Puts
Up Stiff Battle To Retain
Clean Slate
Staging a sensational coeback af-
ter Friday night's drubbing at the
hands of the Minnesota sextet, the
Varsity hockey team defeated the
Gophers by a score of 3-2 last night
at the Coliseupi in the fastest game
seen in Ann Arbor in several years.
In handing the Northmen their first
trimming of the season, the Wolver-
ines displayed a brand of hockey that
was not to be denied, and held the
upper hand throughout the contest.
Coach Barss' aggregation cane on the
ice determined to avenge the 7-1 ,
beating of Friday night, and set a pace
that was too hot for their opponents
from the opening whistle. The Goph-
ers put up a great battle, but the
smooth teamwork of the victors coupl-
ed with some brilliant individual play
proved to be too much foy the Minn-..
esota six. Tile game was replete
with thrills and the brand of hockey
exhibited by both teams was of the
highest caliber. Referee Nick Kaher,
who has been in the game for 17
years and who has played professional
hockey in both the United States and
Canada, said that the game was the
best exhibition of collegiate hockey
lie had ever seen.
Beresford Scores First
Jim Beresford drew first blood for
Miclbigan when he shot the puck past
Schade, the Gopher goal tender, after
three minutes and 30 seconds of play
in the first period. The score was
made during a lively, melee in 'front
or the Minnesota goal. A few min-
uaes later, Pep Reynolds narrowly
missed another goal after guiding the
puck through the visitors' defense. Af.-
ter eight minutes had elapsed, Beres-
ford again shot a goal in which some
excellent teamwork on the part of the
Wolveirnes played an important part
Three minutes before the end of the
period Captain Pond, Minnesota's bril-
liant pilot, took a pass from Thomp-
son and shot a pretty goal from the
sidc of the rink The period ended
without further scoring.
The second session started with a
rush, the Wolverines being determin- I
ed to maintain their lead, with their'
opponents equally anxious to forge
ahead. Early in the period, Captain
Eddie Kahn was laid out for a few
moments, but was not seriously in-
jured. After eight and one half min-
utes, Dan Quirk took advantage of
a break recovering the puck after a
Minnesota man had lost it in front of
his .goal, and shot the disc into the!
net for Michigan's last score.
Play Is Fast
Pond attempted a number of long
shots in a desperate attempt to put
his team to the fore, but Weitzel
Michigan's goal tender, was equal to
the task of stopping the flying puck
and the period ended with the score
standing at 3-1 with Michigan in the
lead. The period was featured by
thrilling hockey, both sextets playing
like mad.
The Gophers came back strong in
the final period and rained shots on
the Wolverine goal. One minute af-
ter the period started, Gustafson shot
a. goal after receiving a pass from
Pond. Kahn was again laid out for
a short while, but remained on the Ice.
The Michigan rooters were given a
severe scare when Pond narrowly
missed shooting a goal after Weitzel
had stopped a shot. Weitzel was pep-
pered with shots for several minutes
but none of them went into Michi-
gan's hoop. With five minutes to
play, both teams displayed great hock-
ey and the contest became most sen-
sational. Reynolds' phenomenal de-
fensive play and the teamwork of
Quirk and Reynolds featured in check-
ing the furious attack of the Gopher

The Week's News
In Brief
In spite of President Coolidge's
public support, the oil business be-
came too involved for Mr. Denby, who
gave his resignation, to be effective
March 10. His resignation relieves
the President of retaining a man who
insisted that the leasing policy was to
the best interests of the nation, after
it had been repudiated, not only by the
Senate, but by the administration.
Senator Wheeler, who would like
to see Attorney-General Daugherty
follow in Denby's footsteps, said that
if Daugherty hadn't made money.out
of the oil leases, lie "was a bigger
fool than the people of the United
States give him credit for buing."
The President is now looking for
a man with mining and engineering
experience to take the Navy portfolio
-in other words, one who can oper-j
ate the oil reserves.
When asked whether lie would en-
ter the presidential race, Governor
Al Smith of New York, said: "I am

Washington, Feb. 23.-(By AP)--
The revenue bill withstood sucessful-

most determined attacks in the form
of an amendment submitted by rep-

be expected before the latter part of
