MichiganHockey Suad Elects Co-Captains I

Jewell, Sherf
Named To Lead

Forty Gridmen


Out For Opening Football Practice

193435 Sextet
Sami Smith, '35, Is Chosen
Manager Of Puck Team
For Next Season
Johnny Jewell and Johnny Sherf,
both of Calumet, were elected co-
captains of the Michigan hockey team
for next year at a meeting of the
puck squad last night at the Varsity
't the same time, Sampson J.
Smith, of Detroit, was named team
manager for the 1934-35 season, suc-
ceeding Jack O'Dell who has been
manager during the present season.
Jewell and Sherf succeed George
David, who captained the Wolverines
during a successful season which
closed with two victories over Mich-
igan Tech ten days ago.
Co-Captains Are Stars
Both of the captains for next year
have been on the Michigan Varsity
for two years and have been out-
standing among the Wolverine puck-
sters. Sherf, playing at wing, led the
Maize and Blue in scoring this year,
counting 23 of the team's 42 goals.
Jewell, who stepped into Jack Tomp-
kins place as a sophomore, has ably
guarded the Michigan net. The Wol-
verine goalie is considered by many
hockey experts as one of the most
capable net minders incollege circles.
In their high school days in the
copper country of the Upper Penin-
sula, the co-captains elect were arch
rivals on the rink. Sherf starred for
four 'years with the Calumet High
sextet while Jewell was the ace of
the Laurium High six.
High School Captains
The scholastic team on which Sherf
learned how to handle the puck won
the championship of the copper coun-
try each year during the time that
the Wolverine wing was on the team.
During this period, the Laurium
pucksters were runners-up to the Cal-
umet six.
Both of the new Wolverine leaders
have had experience as captains on
their high school teams. Sherf was
the Calumet captain for three years
while Jewell led his team during his
senior year.
With two such able puckmen as
Jewell and Sherf to lead the team
next year, the Wolverines should bet-
ter the record made in 1933-34. In
addition to the co-captains, Coach
Lowrey has Red MacCollum, Larry
David, Gil MacEachern and Walter
Courtis available for this year's Var-
sity, augmented by several excellent
hockey players from this season's
yearling squad.
Michio an Frosh
Defeat Hoosier
The Michigan freshman track
squad snowed under the Hoosier
yearling team yesterday, in a meet
that was conducted by telegraph
77 1-2 to 26 1-2.
Michigan scored slams in the 880-
yard run and the 440-yard run, be-
sides winning the mile relay and
walking off with ten firsts out of the
12 events.
One freshman field house record
was broken when Stiles of Michigar
ran the 440 in the excellent time of
:51.6 seconds. Osgood was the only
double winner taking the 65-yard lo
hurdles and 65-yard high hurdles.
Cajonc's win in the pole vault wa
a surprise to Coach Ken Doherty. Ca-1
jonc had never vaulted before. O'Con

the mile, also drew the praise of h

Hoyt Has Own Plan
For Producing Big
Ten Track Winners
Well-balanced team and a star -
that's Coach Charlie Hoyt's formula
for a Conference Championship track
team. One without the other would be
useless. Together they spell victory.
Little can be said about the indoor
meet Saturday except that the Wol-
verines performed as expected. One
:r two did a little better, one or two
a little worse, and the team as a
whole came through with flying
Coach Hoyt is happy, the squad
is happy - and why not? The cov-
:ted Big Ten indoor pennant comes
home after two years away.
As much as we respect Willis
Ward's prowess as an athlete, we
lidn't really expect him to come off
with three first places. Those who
predicted it did so with vague fore-
)odings. They knew he had to for
V4ichigan to win, but three firsts -
Even more remarkable is the fact
hat he won two of them in short
events where inches spell defeat. And

points in the half-mile, partly made

Illinois two years ago.
Capt. Tom Ellerby returned to,
form to score two valuable points in
the quarter-mile. He ran in the race,
which Ivan Fuqua won in the record
time of 49.2 and his performance in-.
dicated that he had returned to his
old form.

versity pool and five of the men who
will compete for individual and team
titles there Saturday.
Captain Jim Cristy, Michigan, is
the defending Big Ten champion in
the 220 and 440, while both Dick
Degener, Michigan, and Don Horn,
Northwestern, hold National titles in
addition to their Big Ten crowns.
Horn, the nation's outstanding colle-
giate breaststroke swimmer while
Degener dominates the high and low-
board diving field.
Art highland, captain of the 1934
[Wildcat team, holds the 100-yard
title in the Conference. He will have
to beat out Flachmann of Illinois to
retain the crown. Another captain
and champion is Bruce Grove, leader
of the Hawkeyes. Grove placed in
both the 220 and 440 back of Cristy
last year and hopes to give the Wol-
verine star a battle Saturday.
The meet will be a decidedly
"Michigan against the field" affair,
with the other entrants trying to
stop the Wolverine rush to their
fourth consecutive Conference title.
All events, preliminaries as well as
finals, will be run off in one day.

Cage Batting
Opens Official
Baseball Year
Varsity baseball practice began of-
ficially yesterday afternoon with the
inauguration of batting practice in
the cages at Yost Field House. Forty-
four ball players reported during the
course of the afternoon, and Coach
Ray Fisher was furnished with his
first opportunity to give his entire
cast the "once over."
The batterymen have been work-
ing out for two months; putting the
pitchers far ahead of the batters.
Pepper games are the vogue for the
ballplayers who are not engaged in
hitting or pitching. A pepper game
is merely the baseball vernacular for
the pastime in which one man bats
ground balls to two or three fielders.
Ordinarily it is a harmless diversion,
but when played in the Field House,
where batted ground balls describe
more peculiar antics than a Mexican
jumping bean, it becomes a little
dangerous for the well being of its
Coach Fisher has put a ban on
batting practice during dark after-
noons. He intends to devote this
time to perfecting his charges' ability
in getting a lead off first base, on the
pitcher, and practicing the art of
Of the 44 men out for the nine,
the veterans are, pitchers, Wistert,

More Expected
TO Report For
Tonight's Drill
Kipke Instructs Squad On
Passing And Blocking In
Opening Session
Forty candidates for the 1934 Var-
sity football team reported to Coach
Harry Kipke last night at Yost Field
House for the opening session of
spring grid drills.
Coach Kipke expects 15 or 20 more
to turn out tonight for the second
session. Several of the gridmen, in-
cluding most of the 13 letter winners
from" the national championship
squad of last fall, were unable to re-
port at the first drill, but the Wol-
verine mentor expects them to in-
crease the squad tonight.
Mostly Freshmen
Most of the 40 candidates who
turned out last night were members
of the freshman and physical edu-
cation squads last fall. Only two let-
ter winners, Capt. Tom Austin and
Tage Jacobson, participated in the
first conditioning drill. John Vier-
giver, reserve tackle last fall, reported
to Kipke but was unable to remain
for the practice.
The remaining letter winners, ex-
cept Willis Ward, Russ Oliver, John
Regeczi and Bill Renner are expected
to be on hand tonight. Ward, Oliver
and Regeczi are out for spring sports
while Renner is recovering from an
operation and will not be in shape
until September.
Same System Used
The "punt pass and prayer" system
of Michigan football teams should
again be in evidence next fall if last
night's session is any indication of
Kipke's plans. Most of the practice
session was devoted to passing and
receiving drill with several yearling
passers getting their first taste of
Kipke's methods.
The squad was also put through
a short blocking drill under the su-
pervision of Kipe, Jack Blott and
Wally Weber. Austin and Jacobson
demonstrated the proper method of
taking out an opponent then the
other Varsity candidates practiced
blocking under the eyes of the
Blott Subs For Weber
As a part of the conditioning drills
which will consume the first few
weeks of practice, Weber put the
squad through a stiff calisthenics
drill until he wore out and had to
be replaced by Blott. Kipke joined
in the exercises with the squad and
outlasted the instructors, but had dif-
ficulty in touching his ankles on the
bending drill. "Too much weight,"
was his excuse.
The practice sessions will continue
in the Field House until the weather
permits outdoor drills. The squad
will work out four nights a week while
indoors, increasing to five after the
outdoor practices begin. The indoor
sessions will take place on Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Kipke expects the squad to ap-
proach the century mark by spring
vacation when the players who are
participating in wrestling and spring
basketball drills become available.
All sophomores and second-se-
mester freshmen who are inter-
ested in trying out for Intramural
