Team to Open Conference Season


Minnesota to Offer Opposition
for Wolves at Minneapolis,
Gopher Stronghold.

Deprived of Standing

Maize and Blue Pucksters
Be at Full Strength
for Contest.


Intent on starting their confer-
ence season with a victory over
Minnesota's powerful Northmen
tonight at Minneapolis, Michigan's
championship hockey sqad en-
trained for the West yesterday af-
ternoon at 2:20 o'clock. Tonight's
contest will be the first of a two-
game series, with the second battle
- to be played on Friday night. As
they took the train, the Wolverine
ice squad appeared confident of
victory over the Gophers.
Minnesota is not to be under-
estimated, as Coach Frank Pond
has a veteran aggregation left from
last year, and the machine he has
built from his material in two sea-
sons appears formidable. It was
only after a long battle that the
Northmen succumbed to Harvard,
one of the top-flight Eastern teams,
by the score of 7-6.
Use Different Styles.
Differences in ice tactics 'must
also be brought to account. Min-
nesota is coached to play a strong-
ly aggressive, albeit somewhat in-
cautious type of game, with three,
or even four, men down the ice tak-
ing shots at the goal and retriev-
ing the puck successfully for an-
other attack. Michigan's game is
morecau1, and istbuilt around
the defe hve side of the game more
than is the strategy of their op-
ponent. MInesota's system is

based 'on the old axiom that a
strong offense is the best defense,
and the fact that the opposing
team cannot score as long as their
own goal is being threatened by a
'swarm of offensive players.
Have Large Rink.
Another factor in the game to-
night is the size of the rink. The
Minnesota rink is \20 feet longer
and 10 feet wider than the local
Cohseuar The Gophers have one
of the "largest collegiate ice-floors
of the entire pountry. To counter-
act the effect of the increased
width, Coach Lowrey of the Michi-
gan varsity has drilled his forwards
in passing longer distances.
The full squad of ten men was
slated by Lowrey for the trip, with
Crossman, Reid, and Frumkes rath-
er definitely decided en for the for-
ward wall. Chapman and MacCol-
lum are slated to fill the guard
posts, and Captain Tompkins, of
course, receiving the assignment of
defending the meshes. Spares for
the forward wall will be Artz, Sin-
dles, and David, while Porte will
relieve the guards.
NEW YORK, Jan. 20.-(/P)-The
most effectiveness can be obtained
in 1932 from the Washington pitch-
*ing staff by use of the "spot" sys-
tem, Clark Griffith, president, and
Walter Johnson, manager of the
Senators, have decided.
In line with the theory, Alvin
Crowder, who can defeat the Phila-
delphia Athletics with more regu-
larity than any other pitcher in
the American league, will be thrown
in against the league champions
from the opening gun.
Lloyd Brown, Bob Burke and
Charley Fischer, all southpaws, un-
dcr the plan, will b used 'against
'clubs strong in left-handed hitters,
while Crowder and "Firpo" Marber-
ry, righthanders, will be expected
to take care of clubs featuring bat-

ters who swing from the orthodox
Brown, on the basis of Jast sea-
son's work, figures to work prin-.
cipally against Boston, Cleveland,
and Chicago. Fischer probably will
be sent against the same clubs
Brown is able to subdue.

Charles Paddock, nicknamed 'the
world's fastest human,' and one of
America's speediest sprinters, who
is ineligible to compete in the Olym-
pic Games, following the declara-
tion by the A. A. U., that he is not
an amateur.

Final Scr mage Before Gopher
Contest Features Listless
Practice Session.
With the crucial contest with
Minnesota only two days away,
Coach "Cappy" Cappon devoted'
most of yesterday afternioon's prac-
tice session to polishing up the of-
fensive machinery of his Wolver-
ine basketball quintet.
A short scrimmage session, the
last before the team embarks for,
the Gopher lair, occupied the var- '
,sity for awhile. In general, the
showing of the regulars was not up
to the standard they have display-
ed during the last few weeks, but
this can probably best be attributed,
to the lay-off granted the team
Minnesota clearly demonstrated:
in the last meeting between the two
teams that they
are nbt to be tak-
en to lightly, and
Cappon is trying
to guard against :

charges. Unless

his attention to baseball after
his examinations are completed.

remains to be met before the ex-
amination period. Although the
Buckeyes ar- leading the heap at
the present time with Nothwestern,
the advantage Michigan will have
to overcome by playing on the Co-

tor when the two teams meet.


Spartan Mentor States That He
Receives $8,000 Now and
Is Satisfied.
I 0 W A CITY, Jan. 20.-VP)---
"Sleepy Jim" Crowley started for
East Lansing, Mich., Tuesday night,
a stronger candidate for the Uni-
versity of Iowa head foot ball ball
coaching job than he has been at
any time since Burton A. Ingwer-
sen resigned from the Hawkeyq
position last December.
Iowa athletic officials were ob-
viously pleased viath the results of
a five-hour interview with the
Michigan State cqgch, and Crowley
himself admitted he was "interest-
ed in bettering himself and believ-
ed that Iowa might be the place
to do it."
He explained, however, that he is
getting $8.000 a year salary at
Michigan State and said that he
liked the job. Crowled indicated
that unless Iowa matched or bet-
tered that figure he would not care
to change. He also said that his
contract at Michigan State calls
for. two more years of service.
If arrangements are completed at
Iowa, Crowley said he would pre-
fer to bring Glenn Carberry, now
an assistant at Michigan State,
here with him. Carberry, who was
captain of the Notre Dame team in
1922, knows the Notre Dame system,
and would be a help to him., Crow-
ley -asserted.
Neither Crowley nor Hawkeye [
officials would make any announce-
ment regarding the discussion of
salary. The Hawkeye board reiter-
ated last night the statements that

they intend to interview five other
coaches under consideration before
tendering a contract.-
The Iowa board appeared im-
pressed, however, with a telegram
signed by %ten sports editors of
leading state papers, indorsing
Crowley's candidacy.
Board members regard the selec-
tion of the next foot ball coach as
an opportunity to enlist the sup-
port of the alumni and press of the
state which has been divided in its
opinion of Hawkeye athletics dur-
ing the last few years. With strong
alumni groups known to favor
Crowley as Ingwersen's successor,
and the statement of the sports
writers, it ,appeared today that
"Sleepy Jim" would continue to be
at the top of the prospect list.

Kelly's Freshmen Expected
Give Keen's Grapplers
Tough Opposition.


Although Michigan's mat sched-
ule has a lull in it from now until
the opening of the second semester,
the Wolverine grapplers will not
want for competition during this
interim as Coach Cliff Keen has ar-
ranged for a meet with Kelly's
freshmen stranglers this Friday af-
ternoon'in the mat room of the In-
tramuial building.
Thd first year wrestlers will offer
the Varsity men some tough oppo-
sition as Kelly will select his team
from those men who showed up the
best in the University champion-
ships, which were held just before
the holidays. Several of the bouts
were won by the yearling grapplers
and others reachedlthe :finals.
A number of the regular Varsity
matmen will compete in this meet
in order to gain more experience,
although Keen will in all probabil-
ity not send many of his proven
veterans against the freshmen.
Kelly, has some of the best freshV
man material that has ever worked
on the Wolverine mats, as was1
demonstrated by their showing in
Bob Hewitt, former Michigan
wrestlhng star, who was just
barely nosed out ip the final
bout in -the 1928 Olympics at
Amsterdam in the 118-pound
class, has announced his inten-
tion of entering competition for
this year's United States Olym-
pic mat team.
t h e all-campus championships.
Among his proteges who will gi-ve
the Varsity a tough battle are Mor-
timer, who went /to the finals in
the 135-pound class; Landwehr,
who went through to win his bout
at 145; Duxbury, who put up a good
scrap barely being beaten in the
165-pound weight; and Hildebrand,
who showed some real class in tak-
ing the 175-pound championship.

Play has progressed to the sec-
cnd round in the All-Campus hand-
ball tournament. All eight of the
seeded players advanced, seven of
them winning their matches while
the other man received a bye. The
second round will be played on
Thursday, with the hope of com-
pleting the tourney before the ex-.
amination period. The doubles'
tournament will be played during
the second semester.
Leo Goodman, ranked number
two man, had the only difficult
match of the initial round. He
eliminated Jones by a 2 games to
1 score. The other first round win-
ners were Phelps, Carter, Lance:
Freidman, Straub and Cohen.
