Minnesota Team Presents
Offensive Composed Of
Three Forward Lines
Coach Eddie Lowrey and nine mem-
bers of the Varsity hockey squad will
entrain this afternoon for Minneap-j
olis, where they are scheduled to;
meet the Minnesota sextet in a two-I
game series tomorrow and Saturday.
The games, to be played at the Minne-j
apolis rink, are the first away from,
Ann Arbor for the team so far this!
Minnesota Jinx Team
Minnesota has long been the jinx I
team on the Wolverine hockey sched-
ule, but the general feeling at the*
Coliseum is one of optimism with re-
gards to the coming encounters. The
Gophers have already dropped four
games this year, two to Yale by.
scores of 2 to 0, and 3 to 1, and two
to Manitoba.
Despite the fact that Minnesota
squad is known to be strong, and has
good reserve material, Coach Low-
rey plans to take only three spares
with him to relieve his forwards.
Walter Courtis and Gilbert McEach-
emn, who have been the first to go'
in as substitutes, will. be accompan--
ied by Ed Chase. Chase has seen
action in the last two games in Ann
Arbor, having scored a goal in his
initial appearance against Wiscon-
Wolverines Outpowered
The Gophers will present an of-
fense which in sheer power far ex-
ceeds Michigan's. Two veteran for-
ward lines will carry the brunt of the
attack, and will be supplemented by
a third line, composed of sophomores.
To face this aggregation, the Maize
and Blue regulars who have started
in every game this season will make
the trip. Headed by Co-captains
Johnny Sherf and Johnny Jewell,
left wing and goalie respectively, the
list includes Vic Heyliger,. center,

Wisconsin Denies Report
Hockey Team Will Quitl
MADISON, Wis., Jan. 16 -(P) -
Guy Lowman, director of intramural
and minor sports at the University
of Wisconsin, today denied reports
that the university hockey team will
not complete its schedule. Lowman
said the team would round out the
season Feb. 8 and 9 with games with
the University of Minnesota at
The Wisconsin team met Michigan
in a two-game series at Ann Arbor
last week, but lost both games as it
failed to show any offensive strength.
The Wolverines won the first engage-
ment, 6 to,0, and the second, 2 to 1.

THE FOLLOWING letter is from a
student who appended the infor-
mation that he has been a "rail-bird"
at Michigan basketball practices for
six years. His intimation that Cap-
tain Plummer does not train is sub-
mitted without proof and snould be


taken accordingly. His statement
that Dick Evans is the best guard on
the squad is, I think, a little strong.
Otherwise, what he says is sub-
stantially sound, at least in theory:
To the Editor:
There is a belief around camp-
us which I think is inaccurate.
Many have said that Coach Cap-
pon is a poor basketball coach.
I do not believe that. He will get
as much out of a given squad of
players as any other cage coach
immediately available to the au-
thorities. He did not want the
job when Veenker left, and is do-
ing more than his level best to
bring home a winner.
Believing as I do, I still sub-
mit for consideration the follow-
ing suggestions concerning the
present cage squad:
Michigan has the material for
two good basketball teams, not
one. Each team is the direct op-
posite of the other. One has
heighth, power, and fair shooting
eyes, while the other has speed,
short stature, and inferior shoot-
ing. One team should include
Patanelli, a good conservative
player who must be stimulated
to take more shots; Jablonski,
who should practice following in
shots; Tomagno, who is careless
in his ball handling and shooting
and who could be the outstand-
ing player on the team; Evans,
the best guard; and Meyers, who
rates second to Evans only. This
five should use a careful, set of-
fense, passing exclusively, and
score often on follow-in shots af-
ter Evans' long ones.
The other team might be made
up of Rieck, Rudness, Ford, Hill,
or Jennings, and Joslin or Gee.
Next semester Castle will be eli-
gible for the center position. A
team similar to this defeated the
Varsity handily last week and on
the next day defeated the first
freshman team that in turn de-
feated the Varsity.
This should be a fast breaking
offense team which uses speed
exclusively to score. The fast
breaking offense is easy to teach,
and these natural speedsters
should play five or seven minutes
of every half in order to change
the tempo of Michigan's attack.
Such a team could be taught to
move on offense so that the op-
ponents would tire quickly in
guarding them. Michigan has the
material for two good basketball
teams and they should use it.
I think that any player who is
not in the best condition should
be benched, and this applies par-
ticularly to Plummer. He should
be taught the responsibilities of
a Michigan captain. It is little
enough of a prerequisite to de-
mand good physical condition of
the players.
Alternating these two teams in
each half would not lose games
any faster than they are being
lost at present, that's sure. In
fact, the sudden change in tempo,
using the speedsters to tire out
the opposition, letting them give
"all" for five or ten minutes of
a half, would probably defeat
more opponents than the Wolv-
erines have been able to vanquish
as yet.
