Coach "Veenker Drills Varsity on
Neiw Plays in Development
As a reward for their exhibition
of winning basketball against Pur-
due Monday night, Coach Veenker
dispensed with the regular Varsity
scrimmage yesterday, and merely
gave the, first stringers a brief drill
on floor work after a session of
skull practice. The second and third
string teams, however, were sent
through a period of scrimmage.
The Blue team, composed of Cap-
tain Downing and Root, forwards,
Manuel, center, and Shaw and Ric-
ketts, guards, succeeded in letting
their opponents down in a some-
what ragged game, 11-8. The losing
team was composed of Hudson and
Petrie, forwards, Garner,. center,
and Bremen and O'Neill, guards.
After a secret blackboard session,
Coach Veenker set the Varsity to"
work on a few plays in an effort
to develop a fast breaking combina-
tion that will be able to score
against the powerful Wildcat team
when the Wolverines invade Evan-
ston Saturday. The Northwestern
method of defense and offense var-
ies somewhat from any the Wolves
have met this season, and a new
plan of attack must be worked out.
In spite of the fact that the Boil-
ermakers, who went down to defeat
before the green Michigan five inj
the season's opener, were the cham-
pions of the Western Conference
last year, the 1931 edition of the
Wildcat quintet has been conceded
the distinction of possessing the
ablest material of any title' con-
tender. With such opposition to
face on a foreign floor in the sec-
ond game of the season the Wolves
can afford to spare no opportuni-
ties of bettering both their offen-
sive and defensive tactics.
No change in the lineup is pre-
dicted with the opening game out
of the. way, since the quintet of
Eveland, Weiss,nDaniels, Altenhof,
and Williamson showed but few of
the glaring defeats usually so evi-
dpnt in a. green team.

With the defeat of Ontario Agri-
cultu-al Coliege in the last of the
practice games w it h Canadian
teams before the opening of the
Western Conference on, the
Michigan hockey team this week
will go on the road for the first
two of seven out of town games
that will be played before the team
again returns to the Coliseum rink.
This Friday and Saturday the Wol-
verines will meet one of the strong-
es teams in the country, Mar-
quette, in the final clashes before
the actual Conference schedule be-
Although the two stellar play-
er's that starred for Marquette
last year, McFayden and Me-
Kenzie will be absent from the
Wisccnsin team's lineup, the
sextet that will take the ice
against Coach Eddie Lowrey's
men bids fair to again give the
Wolverines a real battle when
the two clubs clash.
Three new sophomores, all stars
in Canadian amateur hockey cir-
cles, will be with the team that will
face the Maize and Blue Friday,
and this new blood, combined with
the remaining veterans from last
year's sextet, is sure to make it an-
other formidable opponent. Mar-
quette last year was rated as the
third best hockey team in the
country, being placed one position
higher than that held by the Wol-

BOXERS SLA TED FOR
TOURNAMENT THIS MONTH
Freshman boxers will get their
first taste of tournament boxing
when the official freshman boxing
tournament opens Jan. 22.
The rounds are slated to be two
minutes each with three rounds to
a decision. The winners of the frosh
competition will meet as a team
the junior class on Jan. 26 or 27.
The winners of the Frosh-Junior
meet will meet the winners of the
Sophomore-Senior dual meet for
the team championship.
Daggot is the leading candidate
for the heavyweight division place
on the freshman team. Otto,
younger brother of Gilbert Otto
who won the light-heavyweight
championship and who held the
middleweight championship of the
campus for two years, seems to
have an edge on the others.
.. .down where
college men choose
this one outstanding
T'HE men who go to the univer-.
sities of Virginia and Kentucky
know tobacco ... they see how it
grows and what makes it good.
So when Virginia students, and
the men who stroll down old South
Limestone Street in Lexington,
pack their pipes with Edgeworth,
their choice tells volumes about the
cool, slow-burning quality of this
favorite smoking tobacco.
It's the same story everywhere-
North, South, East and West. In
42 out of 54 leading colleges and
universities, college men prefer the
smooth, fragrant burley blend of
Edgeworth. Try Edgeworth your-
self. You'll find more pleasure in
a pipe than you ever knew before.
Every tobacco store has Edge-
worth, 150 the tin. Or, for generous
