Minnesota With String Of
Six Victories Anticipates
Both Sides Confident
Michigan Hopes Rest On
Tight Defense, Strong
With the Western Conference
hockey championship as the prize,
Michigan and Minnesota will tear
into each other at 8:30 tonight at
the Coliseum in the first of what
will probably be on the whole a hectic
Both outfits are thirsting for battle
and both are confident of winning.
Minnesota, after recovering from an
unsuccessful early season start, came
back to administer trouncings to
Wisconsin and Michigan Tech in six
straight games and tonight is on the
crest of a wave of self-confidence
which Gopher fans hope will sweep
them into their perennial position at
the top of the Big Ten hockey heap.
Michigan, greatly outbalanced in
man-power, since Minnesota has two
veteran and one sophomore forward
lines to alternate, will depend upon
what is undoubtedly the best defense
in the League, plus an offense which
has averaged close to four goals a
game in Big Ten competition.
Michigan will throw her All-Amer-
ca ace, Co-captain Johnny Sherf,
into the foray with the hope that he

will add plenty to his total of six
goals scored in Conference games;
while Vic Heyliger and Dick Berry-
man, sophomore forwards, are ex-
pected to hit the net.
Captain Spencer Wagnild, defense
man for the Gophers and one of their
leading scorers, will lead a band of
about 15 invading puckmen, most of
whom are veterans. Bud Wilkinson,
goalie, and Ray Bjorck, whose re-
cent promotion to the position of
regular center has improved the play
of the forward line, are the only
sophomores in the Minnesota lineup.
Besides Wagnild, Russ Gray and
Bill Zeiske, who have appeared here
before, and Bjorck are the big guns
in the Gopher attack. None, however,
is capable of scoring frequently on
solo dashes, and consequently depend
upon shooting into the corner and
ganging around the net.

Meet State And State Normal
How They Will Loc k To The Minnesota Goal
Michigan's forward line pictured above has not been shut out-this year and has been one of the better
scoring trios to represent the Wolverines.
Dick Berryman (left) has scored less times than his mates, but four of his five goals this season
have come in Conference games. Vic Heyliger (center) and Johnny Sherf (right) have thus far accounted
for 30 of the team total of 38 goals.

Wolverine Captain Entered
In Mile Run; Relay Team
To Attempt New Record
Michigan's track team will make its
initial home appearance in Yost Field
House in a triangular meet with
Michigan State, and Michigan State
Normal College. The meet will begin
at 7:30 p.m.
Although the Wolverine squad was
represented by individuals in the
State A.A.U. carnival held here Feb.
9, tonight's meet will be the first ap-
pearance as a whole of the team.
Michigan opened its dual meet sched-
ule last week at Minnesota, when a
skeleton squad of 12 men over-
whelmed a weak Gopher team.
Stars To Perform
Tonight's meet will present prac-
tically all the outstanding collegiate
performers of the State, including
Tom Ottey of Michigan State, Bill
Zepp, Abe Rosencrantz and Ray Low-
rey of Normal.
Ottey's choice of either the mile or
two-mile run will stamp tliat event
as the feature of the evening, with
'a dual between him and Harvey Smith
in the mile or between Ottey and Zepp
in the two-mile.
Captain Smith, who set a new Field
House record in the half-mile last
week, will not enter that event to-
night, concentrating in the mile, and
will be supported by Clayton Brels-
With Smith out of the half-mile,
Abe Rosenkrantz of Normal, who bat-
tled the Wolverine captain in his rec-
ord-breaking run, will be installed as
the favorite to take the event. Mich-
igan entries will include T. K. Fish-
er, Paul Gorman, Howard Davidson
and Ed. Devine.
Alix Is Michigan Entry
In the two-mile although Ottey's
entry is expected to make it a duel
with Zepp, Michigan will be repre-
sented by Neree Alix, Walter Stone
and Rod Howell, making his first ap-
pearance of the year.
The meet will also mark the first
appearance in competition for Mich-
igan of Stan Birleson, sophomore
quarter-miler, who has been heralded
as one of the most brilliant prospects
in recent years.

Wisconsin stands at the top of the

running mate, are the key to Wis-

yesterday as a result of having of-

give practical as well as theoretical
demonstrations of sprinting form.
Cedric Sweet, the grid star, who
has been working out in the sprints
to improve his starts, took Hoyt's
offer on a ten-yard dash with a
quart of ice cream as added stakes,
Yesterday Sweet paid off, and is
still trying to deny that Hoyt's
edge was five yards.

veloped rapidly, will complete the

Coach Cappon's Varsity, which
fared poorly against a reserve five

unchanged for the Badgers, with
