DETROIT TO BE IN FACES HAWKS TONIGHT
FINAL PLAY - OFFS

After spending the first two prac-
tice sessions in developing a de-
fense for Hawkeye formations,
Coach Veenker shifted his plans
and finished the week's preparation
for the Iowa tilt with a long drill
on offense during yesterday after-
noon's workout.
The Wolverine defense has been
uniformly good, and the Varsity
h1as had less average points scored
against it than aly other team
n 'the Conference, but the Michi-
garn quintet has shown a sad lapse
from its early season basket shoot-
}ng ability in the last few tilts.
Practice Basket Shooting
Captain McCoy, Chapman, Orwig,
Truskowski, Rose, and Kanitz,
started the workout with an hour's
basket shooting under the dirc-1
tion of Coaclies Veenker and Oostcr-
baan. Both long aid short shots
came in for attention, as missed
tosses from near the hoop cost the
Wolverines the Northwestern and
Illinois contests.
T heiattention paid to the devel-
opment of the Wolverines' eyes for
the basket was topped off with an-
other long drill on foul shooting.
Chapman appeared the most con-
sistent performer from the free]
thrown line but all the men show-
ed the result of the last four day's
work on gratis tosses.
Orwig, Kanitz, Alternate
A short scrimmage with the first
freshman five climaxed the work-
out, the Varsity taking the offen-
sive against Danielsand Weiss,
forwards, Jones, center, and
O'Neill and Crouch, guards. For
the Varsity Rose and Captain Mc-
Coy were again at the guard posts,
Chapman at center, and Truskow-
ski at left forward, while Kanitz
and Orwig alternated at the other
forward position.
The Wolverines' passing attack]
appeared to have regained its old
time snap, and with Orwig, Trus-
kowski and Chapman on the re-
ceiving end of triple and quad-
ruple passes, the Varsity pene-]
trated the yearling defense to drop
in many dog shots. Rose again
assumed the floor guard duties,
taking the ball down to feed it to
the forwards on fast breaks. Cap-
tain McCoy dropped several long
tries through the hoop.
Following the Varsity drill, the
Varsity reserves defeated the year- ~
lings; 9-5, in a short scrimmage.
With Balsamo and Whittle at for-
wards, Lovell at center, and Cush-
iug and Barley at guards, the Re-
serves refused to be cowed by the
presence of Coach Oosterbaan at'
one of the opposing guard posi
tions, and held the yearlings to
wto tallies from the field.
RELAY TRIALS TODAY
Ti me trials this afternoon in the
field house in the 440 yard run will
determine the Wolverines who will
snake the trip to Lansing March 2
to compete in the annual Michi-
gan Statei relay carnival, according
to Coach Farrell.
The track team will follow its
usual program of Saturday trials
in all events, with the exception of
the field entrants who competed
yesterday. Poorman took the shot

Detroit Cougars will be in the
Stanley Cup play-offs this year,
for the first time since Detroit has
had a team in the National Hockey
league. Their position in the play
-for the cup, emblematic of the1
professional hockey championship
of North America, was determined l
here last night, when they defeat-'
ed the New York Rangers for thel
first time this season, 1 to 0, while
the New York Americans were de-
feating the Pittsburgh Pirates, 31
to 2.
The Cougars' victory was doublyl
pleasing to them, placing them in
the play-off and giving them a'
decision over the Rangers,present1
holders of the Stanley cup. t was
a well-earned victory and gave the
Cougars a record of four victories,
two ties and two defeats in the last
eight games.
For the first thirty-four minutes'
of play, its appeared that the Rang-]
ers were trying for a scoreless tie.
They played a strong defensive
game and the Cougars matched
them at this style of play. Then
came the break that brought thel
Cougar victory. Herbie Lewis beat'
two Rangers to the puck back of
the Ranger net and passed to Car-
son Cooper, who drove the puck
under the arm of John Ross Roach
for the only goal of the game.
FUMBLED BALL
WILLBE DEAD'
(By Associated Press)
The foot ball rule change, making
a fumbled ball dead at the spot re-
covered by a defensive team,, will
take from the smaller "underdog"
teams their last chance to upset{
bigger schools on the gridiron, in
the opinion of Coach Glenn This-.
tlethwaite, Wisconsin foot ball
mentor, who addressed the Kiwanis,
club at Saginaw, Thurhday.
Thistlethwaite likewise is not
much in favor of the rule changing
the position for the point-after-
touch-down play from the three-,
yard line to the two yard line.
Thistlethwaite does not think the
change will materially change the
method of procedure for the extra
point, to which he had been per-
sistently opposed. The extra point
should be abolished, he thinks, as it
puts too much value on one play.
He believes that teams will con-
tinue to kick for the point when
they need it badly. Thistlethwaite
expects to have another good team
%t Wisconsin next year. His prmin-
cipal losses will be Capt. Wagner,
all-Conference tackle, and quarter-
back "Bo" Cuisinier.
Northwestern and Michigan had
the best Freshmen squads in the
Big Ten last fall and consequently
will have the best new material
next fall, in Thistlethwaite's opin-
ion.

SHEA MICHIGAN SCORER
Displaying a fast and unrelent-
ing attack, Minnesota's title-seek-
ing hockey team defeated the Wol-
verine sextet Thursday night by a
score of 5-1 in a game played on
the Minnesota ice and replete with
thrills and spills.
The first period of the battle was
rather slow and uninteresting,
each team cautiously feeling out
the other in order to make the lat-
ter period attacks more effective.
Only one goal was made during
this time 'by either team, McCabe

play. The flashy Gopher took the
rebound after one of Peterson.

Grace, Michigan goal keeper.
Gophers Control Puck
Up to this time the play had
been about even, but from this
point on, the men from the. north
began to keep control of the puck
for longer periods of time. Their
belated attack, however, failed to
realize during the first frame, but
unleashed itself with all the fury'
of a northern blizzard'in the sec-
ond, netting three goals.

spare, accomplished one of the
prettiest plays of the battle, taking
the puck from behind the Wolver-
ine goal and skating around the
net to sink the second counter of
the game unassisted.
Owen Scores Again
After this spectacular shot there
followed almost ten minutes of
hard, play, until Owen took a, pass
E from Peterson to count again for
the Gophers. While this score
lacked the spectacular nature of
its predecessor, it came as the re-
suit of good hockey and hard skat-
ing. The scoring for the period
was completed a 'few minutes late
when Tilton pushed a fast one
past Grace.
