Opener, 6 0

Seven Saves

Get Five Counters
Bill Chase Scores Goal
In First Appearance As
Varsity Spare
Michigan's Varsity hockey team
opened the Big Ten season by defeat-
ing Wisconsin here tonight, 6 to 0,
in the first of a two-game series. The
same teams will meet at the Coliseum
again tonight,
Before the first period was 10 min-
utes old the Wolverines had demon-
strated an easy superiority and co-
captain Johnny Sherf had scored
twice on solo dashes. Both teams
played raggedly through the second
period but Michigan came back with
a strong attack in the third to score
four goals in nine minutes.
Crimson Offense Stopped
Wisconsin's offensive was stopped
completely by the effective poke-
checking of the Wolverine forward
line and when a Crimson skater got
past the Michigan red line he was
promptly checked by defenseman
MacCollum or David. Early in the
game a personal feud between Ed
Mercer and the Wolverine defense-
men developed and resulted in double
penalties for the aggressive Badger
and each of the Wolverines in the
second and third stanzas.
Sherf again showed the offensive
ability that made him All-American
left wing last year but Coach Eddie
Lowrey was particularly pleased by
the success of his substitute forward
line. Ed Chase, sandy-haired sopho-
more center made his Varsity debut
and teamed with Gil McEachern and
Walter Courtis to provide effective
<, upperstV r-teegu'Axjowar~s,-.
Goalie Chuck Heyer kept the Wolv-
erines from running the score into
two figures by some fine saves while
the Wolverines were passing the puck
around inside Wisconsin's red line.
In the third period, however, the
Michigan forwards found that Heyer
was weak on low shots and took ad-
vantage of the knowledge to score
four times.
"Lightest Workout"
Only seven saves were credited
to Co-captain John Jewell for the
entire game. He said afterward that
it was the lightest workout he had
ever had in a Varsity game.
Sherf opened the scoring after
three minutes of play when he car-
ried the puck through the Badger
defense andurifled a hard shot into
the net from close in. Seven minutes
later he duplicated the feat, again
nonplussing the Badger defense as
he skated almost into the mouth of
the goal before shooting.
Michigan's substitute line played
approximately half of the second
period, and neither they nor the regu-
lars made very serious attempts to
score, being more occupied in smear-
ing Mercer, to the intense delight of
the x,000 spectators.
Hleyliger Scores
Early in the third period Vic Hey-
liger, who had been doing yoemen's
duty with his fine poke-checking all
evening, batted down a Badger pass
in mid-ice and carried it just across
the red line. His shot hopped past
Heyer into the net.
A minute later Sherf and Heyliger

carried the puck into scoring territory
and, after passing it back and forth
looking for an opening, Heyliger shot
it into the goal to give Michigan a
4 to 0 lead.
Coach Eddie Lowrey sent Chase to

Absent Police Car Is
Discovered In Lansing
"We got our car back!" Exult-
antly officers of the Ann Arbor polic
department announced yesterday
that they had recovered their mys-
teriously absent scout car, missing
since Wednesday.
The car was discovered in Lansing
by police whochad been on the look-
out for the car after the general
broadcast Thursday. As far as clues
indicate, the car proceeded to Lan-

itself to await developments. The
department is still in the dark, but
foul play is suspected. An armed
guard was detailed yesterday to go to
Lansing and bring back the truant

the Undergraduate Council, who is in
charge of the survey of student opin-
ion on men's student government be-
ing conducted by the Council prepara-
tory to the adoption of a new form
of government.
The third part of the comparison
consists of an analysis of the officers
as provided for under three proposals
which have been submitted for crit-
icism. The first two parts were com-
parisons of the membership and juris-
dictions of the plans. The complete
plans are being printed in The Daily
on successive days beginning today.
Provisions for the officers of the
form of men's student government to
be adopted as presented in the three
alternative proposals so far submitted
are as follows:
The officers shall be a president

ident shall be elected by the Council
and shall be a male student of at least
three years on the campus and need

of Hauptmann.

FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 11.-- ()
- A white-haired handwriting expert
in testimony today wedged the Lind-
bergh ransom pen between the car-
penter fingers of Bruno Richard
Albert S. Osborn, dignified and as-
sured, fumbled a tiny earphone and
serenely told the jury trying Haupt-
mann for the murder of the Lind-
bergh baby that he was certain all 14
ransom notes were the work of the
unemotional Bruno.
Hauptmann, fingering his chin,
took the international expert's clear,
precise words as if lost in deep
thought. His expression did not
change as the 8-year-old witness
declared that both the ransom notes
and much of the prisoner's "sample"
handwriting after his arrest were dis-
guised, adding: " . . .and that writer
didn't have but one disguise."
Suspect's Eye Meets Colonels
Hauptmann leaned forward to
study his attorney's album of hand-
writing specimens just as Col. Lind-
hergh, too, leaned forward - intent
on the large wall charts which! Os-
born, pointer in hand, was using to
show similarities of words and let-
For a moment the eyes of father
and prisoner met. Each gazed steadily.
Then both sat erect.
When court adjourned until Mon-
day Osborn still was on the stand
on direct examination, painstakingly
pointing to similarity after similarity
he found in the ransom notes and the
samples Hauptmann, wrote by re-
He pointed to hundreds of un-
crossed "t's," undotted "i's" in both
batches of script; to recurring, pe-
culiar spelling of words such. as "sig-
nature;" to stubbornly hyphenated
"New York."
Osborn turned the ancient court
room into a laboratory. First he ex-
plained his analysis of the ransom
notes and of Hauptmann's handwrit-
ing; then the state produced enlarged
photographs of words from the two
sets of writings and the expert com-
pared them slowly and carefully.
