FOUR VETERANS TO START
Michigan's 1928 hockey team with
a greatly chang~ed personnel from the
outfit that ear'ned a tie for Western
Confernce 'honors last season will
open its s dule by opposing the Uni-
versity of ,Western Ontario at 7:30
o'clock tonight in the Coliseum.
Although the coach, Eddie Lowrey,
is new at is present job here, he is
not unfamjliar to Michigan hockey
fans or to, followers of the sport in
Canada. Last year Coach Lowrey
brought over a team from Windsor
which beat the Wolverines in practice
games. In addition to these appear-
ances, Lowery refereed many of the
home gameson the Michigan schedule.
Four Veterans Will Start
The Wolverine squad, which num-
bers around 12 men, has been in
training for-more than a month, but
was unable to get on the ice until re-
turning fi'om' the holidays. Despite
this handicap the team has whipped
into sha a .rapidly and. should be
ready to staifd the assaults of one of
the fastest amateur teams in Ontario.
Four men' " the starting line-up are
veterans of a year or more of service.
This fact only augurs that the Wol-
verines, their experience, will be
abel to c6e with the brand of hockey
that University of Ontario men will
put up.
The four veteran players who will
open the game tonight are Steve Jones
at goal, Waldron, defense, Maney, cen-
ter, and Copeland, wing. Marshall, a
player of two years' experience, may
get the call for the other wing posi-
tion but at present the starting honors
are at a toss-up betwen him and Hart,
a new man. Shea, defense, completes
the team.
Wolverines Lack a Captain
The team is without a captain now
and will be until the season gets un-
der way. The failure of Cornelius
Gabler, captain-elect, to return to
school and the fact that Bernie Roach
is busy in his senior year in the
school of Dentistry meansathat the
defensive tactics of the team will be
altered somewhat until Coach Lowrey
gets Waldron and Shea working well
together. Although Waldron was on
the squad all of last season his ex-
perience in the big games was limited.
During the past week,however, he has
shown himself ; capable of defensive
play along with the best o the squad.
Shea and Jones round out the defen-
sive side of the team. Jones' work at
tending goal is of a high calibre.
All indications point that the de-
fense men of the Michigan team will
get a good workout when the Ontario
forwards bring the puck down the
ice. The Ontario squad has been on
the ice since the first of November
and at present is in mid-season shape.
Maney Will Start at Center .
At center, Coach Lowrey has placedf
Bill Maney, one of the most promising
players on the squad. Maney pairedI
at wing with Copeland last season,
but will work in to good advantage
in his new role.
The list of substitutes is comprised
of 'Wettlaufer, Joseph, Fromhart, and
Nygord and others. Coach Lowrey
stated that the squad is still open for
candidates. Mort Fisher, a Varsity
man of a few years ago, is expected to
return tothe team.

Contestants in seven weight divi-

wrestling meet at 7 o'clock tonight in
the balcony of the Yost field house.I
The semi-finals will be held a 3f

finals are scheduled for 7 o'clock to-t
morrow night. Both the semi-finals
and the finals bouts will take place
on a mat placed in the middle of the

for spectators.
Hewitt is one of the outstanding
contestants in the 115 pound class. He
won the state A. A. U. title in his
weight last year when a freshman.

While the writer of this wishes to
apologize for and deny any appear-
ances of what may seem to be in the
nature of "bear stories" in the first
"The Tip-Off" column, he also wishes
to assert that Michigan is beset with{
as many difficulties as any basketbafi
team might be called upon to face.
In addition to all of the techni.
cal criticisms voiced about the
basketball team, there is the fact t
to be faced that the Wolverine t
flagship is as a ship without a
rudder. its "Skipper," Coach {
Edwin J. Mather, due to illness,
is unable to be present at prac.
tices, let alone at games.'
Mather was forced to undergo an

cover rapidly. Although able to
take his place as head coac of
the yearling gridmen after a
fashion this fall. Mather has suf-!
fered several relapses since last
sprilg and has been far from
healthy.
Since the end of the football season
Coach Mather has not been qu e soj
well and he has scarcely been with the
team at all since the Christmas vaca-
tion began, transferring his duties to
George Veenker and Harry Kipke.
For Mather to take the trip
which will carry the Wolverines
against Northwestern Saturday
and 11 iseonsini Monday seems oat
of the question, and Michilgan will
enter the Conference eage race
(Continued on Page Nine.)

Negotiations whereby Illinois, Wis-
consin, and Ohio State will meet the
varsity fencing team this year, have
been completed, according to an an-
nouncement by T. E. Wieman, assis-
tant director of athletics. In addi-
tion to these three meets with con-
ference schools, the Wolverine team
will engage M~ichigan State colhge,
the Detroit fencing club and wind up
its first season as a Varsity sport by
participating in the Conference match
to be held in Chicago on March 9
and 10.
Beginning the season with 100 mnii,
the Varsity squad has been c(ut 10
15 fencers who are working out aily
in the Waterman gyinasium u n deir

Finney. Four men are outstanding en

If persistent rumors that the St. Louis Browns want to sign Ty Cobb
