Colgate Hockey
Team Will Play
Michigan Here
Lowrey Prepares M a i z e
And Blue For Strong
Eastern Invasion
Following the two close victories
hung up by the Wolverine hockey
team last week, Coach Eddie Low-
rey is now concentrating on perfect-
ing his ice squad for the game with
Colgate (N.Y.) here this Wednesday.
With the ice season barely under
way for Michigan, much in the way
of improvement is possible in the
week remaining before the holidays.
Consistent development in the accu-
racy and team-work of the pucksters
has been shown in the two games
played so far, and Lowrey expects to
have a polished offense ready for the
Maroon's invasion Wednesday night.
Coach Howard Starr of the Col-
gate rink team will bring a fast and
heavy squad here this week. Capt.
Pud Galbraith and six others on the
Maroon team are 180-pound football
men and are reputed to be excep-
tionally tough and fast.
Strong In East
It appears that Colgate will have
one of the strongest teams in the
East this year. Reserve material,
which counts for so much in the
puck sport, will be abundant, since
Coach Starr has three full teams
available, although he will probably
not bring the full squad to Ann Ar-
Eastern collegiate hockeythas long
been 'considered of a better quality
than the Mid-western competition,
although Michigan and Minnesota
have'been bringing the Big Ten to
the fore in the ice sport in recent
years. Minnesota was National
Champion last year, but four East-
ern teams followed her in that rank-
ing, with Michigan sixth.
One of the most colorful players of
the Maroon roster is a senior wing
named Wheeler Woolsey. He was not
named after the screen pair, of
course, but when playing football
this fall, he received tokens from his
illustrious namesakes before every
Captain Galbraith is a natural
born Canadian, although he lives in
Ithaca, N. Y., at present. Besides
playing hockey for three years, he is
a pole vaulter on the Maroon track
Caoers Show Up
Satisfactorily In
Although his team was defeated in
their opening home encounter, Coach
Franklin C. Cappon has expressed
himself as "satisfied" with the Vars-
ity cagers' improvement over the sea-
son's opener with Western State.
Especially gratifying to the coach-
ing staff was the showing of Fred
Allen at center and George Ford, the
flashy sophomore forward. Although
Allen spotted Buysse, the opposing
center, several inches in height, it
was his control of the tip-off in the
opening minutes which sent the Wol-
verines to a five to nothing lead, com-
pletely stopping the Spartan offense.
Ford Shows Promise
George Ford, playing his first
Varsity game before a Michigan
crowd, gave evidence that he will ful-
fill all predicted for him as a fresh-
man. Although betraying a lack of
experience evidenced by unnecessary

steps and occasional faulty ball-
handling, it was his aggressiveness
and speed which kept the Blue team
in the running in the last minutes.
He also showed an eye for the basket,
chalking up seven points with three
baskets and a foul goal.
Cappon, following the game, laid
the close defeat to his team's failure
to cash in on foul goals.


Layden Confers About New Notre Dame Job

-Associated Press Photo
Elmer Layden, one of the famed "Four Horsemen," talks with the
Rev. Fr. John F. O'Hara, vice-president of Notre Dame, over his return
to the Alma Mater as head football coach and athletic director. Layden,
as the Irish choice to succeed Heartly (Hunk) Anderson, is the second
coach in the last two years to pick up the reins that the late Knute
Rockne dropped and to attempt to regain the old Notre Dame grid

Frosh Squea d
To Scrimmage
Varsity Cagers
Coach Ray Fisher works on the
assumption that what you are not
sure of isn't worth saying. His fresh-
man basketeers worked out at the
Intramural Building yesterday for
the first time since they started in-
tensive practice at Waterman gym-
nasium about a month ago. Coach,
Fisher would not comment on the
relative excellence of the present
squad as compared to last year's
freshman group which was acclaimed
just about the best in the past dec-
ade. Instead he decided to withhold
any hurrahs until the week is over.
This afternoon and again on
Thursday Coach Cappon will send
his Varsity cagers against a picked
group of freshmen in preparation for
the Eastern trip. After the set of
games is over Coach Fisher will have
a better line on each man's indi-
vidual play and he will be prepared
to make a statement as to the worth
of the squad. According to Fisher,
his only desire in the games with the
Varsity is to hold the score as low
as possible and prevent a run-a-way.
Gee Outstanding.
The standout possibility for cen-
ter is a boy named Gee from Syra-
cuse, NewYork.mHe towers six feet,
six inches. At present, he is ironing
out a defet in his timing. Harry
Solomon, who played at Ypsi Nor-
mal for a year, is one of the out-
standing shots on the team. He is
over six feet and is one of the most
experienced men on the team. Pete
Raft and Ferris Jennings, both of
Ann Arbor, Matt Pattenelli, of Elk-
hart, Indiana, Al Drewes, who comes
from Yonkers, New York, which team
won the championship of the state,
and Chet Stabowitz, of Carl Schurz
High School, are some of the out-
standing men on the team.
MacFarlane Is
Winner Of Golf
Meet At Miami
CORAL GABLES, Fla., Dec. 11. -
() - Willie MacFarlane, erstwhile
Scot plasterer, today possessed the
$2,500 first place money of the "Ten
Grand" Miami Biltmore Open.
Shading par by one stroke on the
final 18 for a 72-hole lead of 288, he
came in four strokes ahead of the
field, breaking free of a three-way
tie on the 54th.
The runner-up was Johnny Re-
volta, Menominee, Mich., with a 292
to take the second position award of
$2,250, while Paul Runyan, of White
Plains, N. Y., and Tommy Armour,
Chicago, s p 1 i t third and fourth
money for $875 each when they fin-
ished with 294's.
Ralph Guldahl, St. Louis, who,
with Revolta, was tied with the win-
ner at the 54th, blew up on the en-
suing holes and finished; with Al
Watrous, Detroit, with a 295 .
MacFarlane, 42-year-old Tucyahoe
N. Y., professional, suffering from
neuritis and playing in the tourney
against his physician's orders, re-
received a "big hand" from the gal-
lery as he holed his ball with the
288th stroke.
Stroking with authority, MacFar-
lane hung up a new course record
of 67, four under par, for the first
day's 18. On the second 18, he slid
back to the field with a 77, but re-
covered yesterday afternoon with a

Three Big Ten
Dual Swimming
Meets Carded
Ohio State And Iowa Will
Swim Here; Wolverines
Go To Northwestern
The Wolverine tank team, cham-
pion swimmers of the Big Ten, will
engage at least three Conference op-
ponents in dual meets during the
1934 season. In addition, there is a
possibility of the Maize and Blue
meeting a fourth Big Ten foe if plans
now under way materialize. Michigan
State will be met in the Spartan pool
in the only non-conference meet that
has been scheduled so far.
Ohio State will be the first Con-
ference opponent to engage the Wol-
verines, the meet to be held in the
Michigan pool on February 16. A week
later, Iowa will furnish the Wolve-
rines a big test, this meet being also
scheduled for the Michigan tank.
Northwestern Key Meet
On March 2, Coach Matt Mann will
take his tankmen to Evanston where
the Wolverines will meet Northwest-
ern. This meet should go a long way
toward determining just what team
will win the Big Ten championship
as the Wildcats and Wolverines are
probably the two best teams in the
Conference, if not in the country,
Coach Mann is negotiating with Illi-
nois at present in an attempt to
schedule a meet with the Illini on
the night after the Wildcat meet. If
the Michigan mentor is able to sched-
ule the Illinois swimmers, it will make
four dual meets with Conference foes.
The first dual meet of the, season
is scheduled for January 17, with the
Spartans furnishing the opposition.
Michigan swimming fans, however,
will have an opportunity to see the
Varsity in action the second week
after vacation as Coach Mann is
planning a handicap meet for that
The Conference meet is scheduled
for March 17 in the Iowa pool, with
the Nationals carded for March 30
and 31 at Columbus, 0.
Hockey, Basketball
Leagues Feature
New I-M Schedule
In keeping with their usual illus-
trious program, the Intramural De-
partment will sponsor four separate
basketball tournaments and an ice-
hockey league as the major attrac-
tions of their current winter sport's
card, with a problematical chance of
a faculty league coming into being.
Tonight will be the last oppor-
tunity for fraternity teams to enter.
There are two classes in the fra-
ternity league, class A for the reg-
ulars and class B for the reserves.
Schedules will be mailed to each of
the participating houses at the end
of the week. Besides the fraternity
league t h e r e is an Independent
league, an R.O.T.C. league, and a
Student Publications league.
Sixteen teams have already en-
tered the hockey festivities, and en-
tries will close at the end of the week.
This is an all-campus event, open
to any and all kinds of students.
The Intramural department will fur-
nish all of the necessary equipment
except skates and skill.

LETTERS of a gangster in college to his lady-friend in the Big, Wicked
Dear Mabel:
Yesterday I arrive in Ann Arbor again after watching the Michigans
beat the Vile Cats which are the Northwesterns What a weekend, eh, Mabel?
I find that I am some weeks late in getting back, and I begin to have
some glimmering of an idea that my Chemistry prof. who does not like
me very well to begin with likes me even less now if that is possible. I also
find that the football season is all over and that the Michigans are the
National Champions according to a professor at Illinois.
Wiell all I have to say about him is that he is a very, very fair-minded
person, indeed, if he can see the Illinoises play the Michigans and not see
the Michigans at any other time and still award the championship to the
The people here are now interested faintly in a game which is known
as hockey and also in a game called basketsball, and I see that I will have
to find out what these games are as soon as possible. In fact, I am going
to the hockey game tomorrow night. The Michigans are playing the Colgates
and I am strictly refraining from any cracks about toothpaste, on account
of my friend Al would not like it as any such things would be hopped on
as advertising.
You remember that I introduce you to Percy Frostbottom, that nice
Englishman which I bring with me foif the game. Well day before yesterday
I go to hunt for him to bring him back with me and find that he has
taken a flat out in Cicero. He refuses to come back, saying that at last
he finds people which are "refreshingly genuine" which means, Mabel that
in Cicero if a guy does not like you he does not go around pretending
that he does so.
He merely draws his rod and fills you full of lead. I predict that Percy
will live in Cicero until some guy finds that he does not like Englishmen.
That will be some joke on Percy, eh Mabel?

S P 0 R T S
Every sorority house and dormi-
tory on campus but one has entered
a team in the competition for basket-
ball laurels this winter. Elimination
play, split into a winners' and losers'
division, started yesterday afternoon
on the Barbour gym courts.'
Of the 33 sextets, Jordan is back-
ing three, and Newberry two. The
graduate and independent groups will
also enter more than one, in all prob-
The practice hours to which would-
be basketeers have been devoting
themselves during the past couple of
weeks will very likely be factors in
the final results of the tourney. It is
the only opportunity the women have
had to practice together, and they
have had the benefit of faculty
coaching. Dr. Rugen, Miss Hartwig,
and Miss Field have all assisted in
the instruction sessions.
Graduates wil meet Tuesday eve-
