The Week's News
In Brief
The following column is a sum-
mary of the news of the world
during the past week. An attempt
has been made to present the
most important happenings as
briefly and concisely as possible.
The Senate passed a resolution re-
questing the Immediate resignation of
Secretary of the Navy Denby because
of his connection with the Teapot
Dome oil scandal. The President re-
plied: 4'No official recognition can be
given the resolution." This lighning-
like rejoinder to the Senate's dcanand
made politicians gasp and fair-minded
individuals smile.
"I am a republican, but I cannot
shield anyone because he is a repub-
lican. I am a republican, but I can-
not on that account prosecute anycone

Madison, Wis., Feb. 16.-Wisconsin's
hockey team, fighting hard for re-
venge, could not stem the tide of de-
feat and was agai overcome by the
strong Michigan six in a fast and
rough game on the lower campus rink
yesterday afternoon. -
The score, 3 to 1, does not indicate
the closeness of the game. The ice
was in excellent condition. Michigan
opened the scoring in the first period
when Reynolds, Michigan's center,
made a short one. When it seemed
that in the second period both teams
vould go scoreless, Beresford, Michi-
gan left wing, shoved the puck into
the Wisconsin goal.
Near the middle of this period Quirk
Michigan's right wing, lifted a long
shot into the net from nearly the
middle of the rink. When it seemed
that Wisconsin would again go score-
less Johnson, captain and left wing of
the Badgers, netted a short shot.
