Hilltoppers to be Met in Two
Game Series; Crossman
Not to Play.
Michigan's Varsity hockey team
left last night for Milwaukee where
they will play a two-game series
with Marquette University Friday
and Saturday nights, Jan. 9 and 10.
Coach Lowrey stressed de 0ensive
practice in the recent scrimages
and hopes that W i lI i a in s and
Prouse, sophomores, will be able to
stop the fast-skating Hilltoppers.
Tompkins, goalie, directs the de-
fense in the games and under his
heady leadership the green de-
fense men play better hockey.
Schlanderer May Start.
In the forward wall Crossman
may be missing from the lineup
because of a bad knee injury. Al-
though he will make the trip it is
expected that Captain Art Schlan-
derer will start in his position at
center. The regular wingmen, Cur-
tis and Reed, are in good shape for
the hard two-game series.
Marquette w ill present three
sophomores in their lineup. But
these green men have had previous
experience in hockey, having play-
ed in, Canadian amateur hockey
circles. Marquette was rated as t'he
third best hockey team in the coun-
try last year and although the team
lost its two stars by graduation,
McFayden and McKenzie, any Hill-
topper hockey team gives a good
account of itself on the ice.
Rink Poorly Lighted.
The games will be played on an
outdoor rink that was poorly light-
ed last season. Tompkins remem-
bered one shot that went by him in
last year's contest, that he didn't
see because of the darkness of the
rink. He maintains that the shot
has to be directly in front of him
in order for him to see it. This will
prove an additional handicap to
the Michigan defense.
Hildner will be the only spare that
Lowrey can use on defense. In case
that Crossman will not be able to
play only one spare will be avail-
able for the forward wall, Sindie as
Captain Schlanderer will start at
center. This will seriously handi-
cap the Michigan team, however
Coach Lowrey stated that if the de-f
fense is good Friday and Saturday
nights Michigan should show up
very well.j

Wolverines to Battle
Wildcats in Cage Tilt
Northwestern Game Looms
as All-Important to Title
Hopes of Veenker's Team.
By Joe Russell
Michi an will meet the thirdf
member of the Western Confer-
ence's "Big Three" for the 1931
cage season when Coach Veenker's
warriors invade Evanston this Sat-
urday night to battle for their place
against the favored Wildcats. Mich-
igan, Purdue and Northwestern are
locked t as the outstanding teams
in the Big Ten this year, and with
Purdue al eady put away once, the
Wolverines look upon this week's
game as a potent indicator as to
how the final standings will read.
Of the three teams, North-
western is looked upon as the
strongest by most critics, but
even Purdue was supposed to
hold the edge over the Maize
and Blue also, by virtue of their
championship last year and
the presence of Johnny Wooden
in its line-up. This advantage
was quickly dispelled, however,
once the teams took the floor
with the well-known result that
Michigan took a mighty leap to
the fore with a 29-22 victory.
But Northwestern is strong. Un-
defeated in all of their pre-season
games, the Wildcats figure that the
surest way to win the coveted
championship is by getting the
jump on the field, and the best
way to do that is to set Michigan
down with a defeat. In the first
game of the holiday season, the
Purple broke the winning streak of
Carleton, which had mounted to
some thirty straight victories, by a
31-22 count. In this game, however,
Coach Dutch Lonberg lost the serv-
ices of Bob Lockhart, star guard.I
Next Alabama breezed up
from the south with a mighty
reputation, which served them
poorly once the Wildcats start-I
ed peppering their basket, and
wcre swamped under a 32-10
storm. Then Notre Dame, hop-
ing to repeat the success their
gridders had against the Big
Ten school, and to avenge a 44-
29 reverse earlier in the season.
put up a bitter fight, but could
not quite keep up and los# a
close game 20-17. This record
shows that the 'Cats are no club
to fool around with, and unless
Coach Veenker's boys are right
on their game the evening is

Detroit Yacht Club to be Met
Here January 16.
,n additional swimming meet has
}vv a cheduled here for Friday,
January 16 with the Detroit Yacht
1"x . This c~counter will be the
>cond time the two squads have
met this season, the Wolverines
iaving overcome the Yacht Club
,:tators, 35-29, on December 10 in
Detroit. With the annor-emient of
i addition to the rimming
schedule comes the news that the
Chic ago Athletic Association, whose
mlmng team is carded to face
ihigan here on January 29, may
be forced to cancel the engagement
diue Lo lack of funds.
Due to the fact that the first
meet of the year between the Do-
treit Yacht Club and the Wolver-
ines was won by the Maize and
Blue with a margin of only six
points the return meet will un-
pmubtedly decide whether or not
the score was indicative of the re-
epective strength of the two teams.
Added interest in centered in the
contest as a result of several for-
mer Wolverine stars appearing in
the invaders' list of entries.
Spindle, captain of the Michigan
ank team in 1929, Hubbell, Walai-
tas. Mertz, and losmer, all having
participated recently under the

N" :W YORK, Jan. 8.-A shroud of
3is _ e enveloped the great heavy-

tcr, -'Pa" Stribling, the key men

whom for what championship. The
Striblings are due this evening to
get the conferences started all over.
No matter who may fight or
where next summer's championship
battle may take place, it seems cer-
tain that Stribling will be one of
the men in the ring. With Schmel-
ing barred in New York, the Madi-
son Square Garden management
began to move yesterday in the
direction indicated by the state
athletic commission-toward a bat-
tle between Stribling and Jack
Sharkey, the winner to be recog-
nized as heavyweight champion. At
the same time, Nate Lewis, Chicago

Michigan Poloists to Compete
in Annual Tourney for
Sorenson Trophy.
Michigan's water polo team, rated
one of the best in the Western Con-
ference last season, will go to tile
Detroit Yacht Club tomorrow to
compete in the annual tournament
for the Sorenson Trophy. Five
teams are entered in this meet, witi
the winner receiving a trophy
offered by Commodore Sorenson.
The entries include besides the
University of Michigan, the Uni-
versity of Toronto, the Elmwood
Club, Kronk Athletic Club, and the
Detroit Yacht Club, winners of the
title last year. The preliminaries
are scheduled to begin at two
o'clock withthefinal game being
played in the evening.
Wolves May Meet Trophy Holders.
In a recent swimming meet with
the Yacht Club team, the Wolver-
ines lost the decision in the water
polo game, 2-1, but after several
weeks of practice, Coach Matt
Mann's proteges have shown suffi-
cient improvement to give them a
good chance of triumphing over
the present trophy holders tomor-
row in case the two teams are pair-
ed u) for a game.
Sophomores Add Strength.
The 1931 edition of the Wolverine
poloists has been greatly depleted
from last year's team through grad-
uation, but a number of fast swim-
mers and excellent poloists have
come up from the yearling squad of
last year. The lineup as announced
yesterday by Coach Mann includes
Smith, a veteran, Kennedy and
Lemak, backs; Captain Valentine
and Ladd, both of last years' team,
and Schmieler, forwards; and Mil-
ler, another veteran natator, at

"Dutch" Lonberg,
Mentor of Northwestern's ster--
ling cage team, who will send his
charges against the championship
bound Michigan five Saturday night
at Evanston.
Fisher's Charges Fail to Show
Standard Form in Long
Practice Session.
After a late start for the after-
noon's workout, the yearling bas-
ketball squad was put through a,
scrimmage session for the entire,
practice period yesterday. Coach
Ray Fisher split up his group of
freshmen and let them show him
what they could do in the way of
some co-ordination and speed on
the court. Practically all the men
were shifted around until each
candidate had seen some action un-
der the eye of the freshman coach.
The "Blacks" lined up with Alien
at center, Ratterman and Kimmel
at the forward posts, and Fishman
and Boden playing guards. Their
opposition was provided by Litch-
field, starting center but later re-
placed by Vohnsack; Graham and
