Now that the last day of sessionsEhas arrived The Daily can
take time off to acknowledge a few things and to pay a few com-
pliments. Like all student publications it always claims the right
to be a bit radical, a bit unthinking, and a bit presumptuous. It
cheerfully acknowledges that this has been the case during the
last few days, which means that no one in a sane mind really want-
ed school to close early, especially if he had considered at all that an
early closing would have meant in all probability the attach-
ing of days of vacation somewhere along the line-days that would
have been much harder to fill out than these last have been. The
agitation through these columns for an early closing of school on
account of the supposed epidemic of influenza was in truth only an
extension of the Toasted Rolls column, and it is truly believed that
the greater part of the student body has taken it as such. Very
few projectscould have morenappeal to the undergraduate mind
than the conducting of a campaign to lock the classroom doors,
especially when there was not a chance in a thousand that the end
would be accomplished. So much for this.
The Daily wishes to compliment the Health Service, however,
for the apt way in which it refused to be taken in, for its cheer-
fulness in the face of a barrage of telephone calls, and for the
efficiency it has displayed in handling the wave of real and psychol-
ogical illness that has swept the campus in the last week or so. It
is sincerely desired that there will be no hard feelings because of
the episode.
To the doctors and nurses who stopped the running noses of
the campus, to those who in some official capacity spent consider-
able time during the last few days in saying over the telephone
"No, school will not close!", and, then to everybody in general-
The Daily wishes a Merry Christmas.
The Managing Editor.

Michigan Surprises Highly Rated
Foes By Leading Major
Part Of Contest
By Joe Russell
A gamely fighting Wolverine
hockey team last night held the
highly touted Toronto Aggie sextet
to a 4-3 victory in the inaugural
game of the new Coliseum rink.
The Aggies, a group of fast skat-
ing, hard playing pucksters were
led by the Lowry-coached men for
the greater part of the game, and
it was oily in the third period that
they showed their superior experi-
ence and longer training.
The Toronto Agricultural College
team is rated as one of the best in
Canadian intercollegiate hockey-
dom, and the feat of the Michigan
squad in holding them to such a
low score, is noteworthy and prom-
ises a brilliant season. The Maize
and Blue team played together re-
markably well for the short period
they have been practicing, about
ten days, and showed the form of
old veterans in their blocking and
checking. The forwards had some
trouble in keeping ' their three
man combination together, but the
defense men, Bryant and Joseph,
flayed fine games and stopped
many promising Aggie advances.
Captain Fisher Stars
Captain Mort Fisher at center
was in on every play for the Wol-
verines and made one of the three
goals which his team was able to
collect. This score by the Michi-
gan captain was one of the pret-
tiest plays of the game. Fisher
took the puck from behind his own
net and advanced it the length of
rink - single-handed. He evaded
several would-be blockers in this
advance, and then shot a hard
short try between the goalie's legs.
Walker of the Canadian team
made the most points for his team
with three goals to his credit, and
Goodwillie at defense showed the
crowd of about five hundred the
fastest skating of the evening, be-
sides scoring a goal in the first
period. In the last period Good-
willie opened up with a bewilder-
ing burst of speed that did not net
goals only because his shots had a
habit of going wide of their mark.
Michigan drew first blood in the
new rink when Renouf, Aggie goal,
blocked a hard shot from Fisher
and Bryant pushed the sliding
puck into the net. Goodwillie
then made his score which just got
past Rhines, Wolverine goal.
Schlanders Counts
With the score tied at one all,
Schlanders took a fine pass from
Joseph and slipped the puck past
Renouf for the second Wolverine
score. This goal followed a long
advance down the rink and the
Michigan men had to fight hard
1 to get clear for the try. Both goal
tenders saved almost sure scores
by difficult stops during the rest
of this period, many of these plays
being of the spectacular one hand
variety. The period ended with
the score 2-1 in Michigan's favor.
