Michigan Hopes
To End Gopher
Victory Streak.
Minnesota Leads League
With Two Victories Over
Wisconsin And Michigan
Last Big Ten Match
Double Michigan Victory
Would Give Wolverines
Tie For Top Honors
The Wolverine hockey sextet will
close its Big Ten season against the
Conference leading Gophers tomor-
row and Saturday when the Minne-
sota six invades the Varsity Arena
for a two-game series.
Coach Frank Bond's pucksters are
perched in first place in the hockey
race with a record of four victories
and no defeats. The Gophers won two
victories over the Wolverines in St.
Paul during the first semester and
administered the same number of
beatings to Wisconsin two weeks ago.
Michigan In Second Place
In second place in the Big Ten race
is Michigan with a record of two vic-
tories and two defeats. Wisconsin is
holding the cellar berth with four de-
feats in as many starts.
The two-game series with Minne-
sota will provide the Maize and Blue
with an opportunity to finish in a tie
for first place in the Conference,
sharing the title with the Gophers
who have won the title outright for
the past two years.
Although Coach Lowrey's pucksters
lost both of the early season games
to the Gophers, the Wolverines are
confident of sweeping the series on
the local rink.
Wolverines Near Peak
Considerably strengthened by the
return of Harold Sindles, wing, and
Red MacCollum, defense, who were
ineligible during the first semester,
the Maize and Blue played improved
hockey against Wisconsin last week
end and should be at their peak
against the Gophers.
One of the greatest weaknesses the
Wolverines have displayed in compe-
tition with the Gophers has been lack
of confidence. Now, with a stronger
reserve forward line to replace the
regulars during the game, the Varsity
puckmen are confident that they will
edge out the Gophers and gain a tie
for the Big Ten title.

Hockey Reform....

FIREWORKS and more fireworks.
That ought to be the keynote of
the hockey series tomorrow and Sat-
urday night here with the Minne-
sotas. Revenge, they say is sweet, and
by it the Michigan pucksters will be
not only motivated but spurred and
goaded to white-hot efforts.
Now the desire for revenge is prob-
ably not the most enlightening aspect
' of man's nature nor yet the most
commendable. But it's swell to watch
a revenge sporting event, even if the
boys out for it don't get it.
The Michigans will be out to
avenge a double defeat taken over
in Minneapolis a few weeks ago at
the hands of the redoubtable Goph-
ers. It was a bitter brace of games,
made more bitter by the refereeing,
and difficulties with the refereeing
were anticipated, as witness the col-
umn of Thursday before the first of
the contests. History repeats itself,
and Ed Lowrey did have trouble with
the officials.
* * e e
T WAS difficulty serious enough to
result in the withdrawal of the en-
tire Michigan team from the ice by
Coach Lowrey. All this happened
early in the first game.
But this week, the Michigans will
have their own referee. The hockey
referee is a strange biped, hred by
the home team, cheered and jeered
by the local crowds in the interests
of the home team; he usually has at
least some inkling as to which side
of his bread is buttered.
Consequently, the Michigans will
have a better chance. They are not
expected to win because the Minne-
sotas have a grand team, but still
the Michigans, with their own referee,
will have a better chance to win. If
you don't believe that statement, ask
any hockey follower out here or some
team member.
Now such a state of affairs in Big
Ten competition is unthinkable. It is
unfair to the visitors. It does not
make for clean sport.
HOW CAN SUCH an evil be abol-
ished? Remove the fundamental
cause, and let the visiting team either
bring a referee along with them, or
select one of the locals whom they
know would be perfectly impartial.
The disadvantage of playing before
a hostile crowd and on a strange
rink would be offset by the familiar
referee.
It is not that the refereeing here
this year has not been above crit-
icism, but rather as a broad general
principle to be followed in hockey
as a Big Ten sport, to keep it fair
and sportsmanlike, to prevent diffi-
culties and even outrages which tend
to detract from collegiate hockey's
good name.
Here I go turning reformer again,

Friday's Meet
Will Be Final
Encounter Here
Meet Starting Early Due
To Gopher Puck Game;
Freshmen Show Wares
Returning to Ann Arbor late last
night after their annual exhibition
swim in Battle Creek, the Varsity
swimming team will hold its last
hard drill today in preparation for
tomorrow night's dual meet with
Iowa.
Approximately 14 C o r n h u s k e r
swimmers will arrive in town tomor-
row afternoon in time to accustom
themselves to the Intramural pool.
Their pool, which has been in use
only two or three years, is the long-
est in the Conference, ten yards
longer than Michigan's 25 yard tank.
Meet To Start Early
Mann stressed the fact that fans
will have to be seated by 7:15 p. m.
Friday if they do not wish to miss
the opening event. The meet is be-
ing run off early to allow customer
to get to the Michigan-Minnesota
hockey game at the Varsity Arena
by 8:30.
An added attraction on Friday will
be a preview of three freshman
swimmers who are expected to do
great things for Michigan in the next
three years. In a special exhibition
these three will attempt to set a new
intercollegiate medley relay mark.
Cody To Swim Backstroke
Frank Cody, interscholastic title
holder from Detroit, will swim the
back'idroke. Kasely, another title
hoder among the yearlings, will
swim the breaststroke, while Bernard
completes the 300 yard event with
the free style.
Captain 'Jim Cristy, who disap-
pointed fans by swimming the 440
in the comparatively slow time of
5:14 in the Ohio meet, proved that
he is capable of swimming even fast-
er than last year on Tuesday when
he negotiated the quarter mile in
4:56. Mann is confident that there
is no free styler in the Conference
capable of swimming so far, so fast.
McGRAW IMPROVING
According to a recent bulletin
issued by the New Rochelle, (N.
Y.) Hospital, John McGraw
showed slight improvement over
his condition of the past few days.
In a severe battle against pneu-
monia, the former Giant man-
ager, was given little hope for re-
covery prior to today.
which word according to representa-
tives of the English department, has
a "bad smell." But if there is any-
thing I hate to see or imagine, it is
a visiting team getting robbed of
everything but the well-known false
teeth merely because the home gang
gets to cross the referee's palm with
silver.

Purdue's Dutch Fehring

--Associated Press Photo
The Boilermakers are at the top
of the heap in the heated dispute
for the crown in the CJonference bas-
ketball league, and one of the main
reasons is the presence of Dutch
Fehring in the line-up. Dutch is in
his senior year at Purdue and a bet-
ter all-around athlete and scholar
"annot be found throughout the Con-
ierence. When Fehring graduates in
June, nine other schools will breathe
tasicr.
TENNIS NOTICE

"32" of Fred Crawford, Duke's first

Intramural Go
Including all events up till the
close of the first semester, Hops lead
the Independent division of the In-
tramural sports program with a total
of 240 points, it was announced yes-
terday. The Hops are managed by
A. Zander, '36.
Close behind the Hops are Humpty
Dumpties with 226 and Blue Raiders
with 225 points in second and third
places. These teams are managed by
W. Hindman, '33, and Woody Ward,
respectively.
In fourth place reposes a team
called the D.D.'s with a muster of 220
points. H. Kahn, '36, is the manager.
Ernie Smith, who has charge of
the Independent division, said yester-
day that the Independents, long suf-
fering from unorganization, are at
last beginning to surmount the dif-
ficulty. The teams are beginning to
act as clubs, electing managers and
controlling membership themselves.
The teams on this basis will carry on
from year to year and will cease to
be only temporary organizations, he
said.
Lieut. Jack Harmony, University
of Maryland boxing coach, was never
defeated through 20 collegiate bouts
when he was a cadet at West Point.

" Tow if you want to build
a fire you've got to have
the right kind of chimney, and
you've got to bave the right kind
of wood, seasoned right and
packed right in the fireplace. If
you've got all this, it's easy to
light up.
"It's pretty near the same way
in smoking a pipe. Now if you've
got Granger Tobacco - the right
kind of pipe tobacco - any old
pipe will do.
"And if you put in a pinch at a
time and pack it down good and
tight-the way to load a pipe-all
you need to do is strike a match.
"Granger smokes sweet and cool
right down to the bottom of the
bowl.
CThat's pipe comfort, I tell you."
