Led by Captain Larry David, the
Michigan hockey team will open its

game which Varsity Coach EddieI
Lowrey prophesies the Wolverines,
will drop by at least two goals.
The Michigan starting six includes
three veterans and three men who
will be making their collegiate hockeyI
debuts. Vic Heyliger will be back at
center as the spearhead of the Wol-
verine attack. Dick Berryman has
been switched from right wing to left
to fill the position vacated by Johnny
Sherf and Johnny Fabello, a clever
stick handler and adept passer,

Directing the defense and protect-
ing the goalie, Reed Low, who will be
making his initial appearance in the
nets, Larry David will provide the
backbone of the Wolverine rear guard.
Coupled with him will be Bert Smith,
husky sophomore, who will also be
starting for the first time.
The London club which downed
the Wolverines, 3-1 in their encoun-
ter last year, will present an even
stronger lineup tonight when they
skate out on the Coliseum ice. Un-
defeated in four previous starts, the
London team will have the advan-
tage of having played longer and hav-

To cope with the powerful London
six, Lowrey will, in addition to his
starting lineup, have Jack Merrill
and Dick Griggs available as substi-
tute forwards and Bob Simpson and
Fritz Radford for relief defensemen.
The game will get under way at
approximately 8:30 but the start will
be delayed if necessary in order to
allow the basketball crowd to attend
both games. Admission for students
with coupon books is 35 cents, for all
others 75 cents.

The "Meechigan System" is not
confined to football alone nor to
Fielding H. Yost, its most ardent sup-
porter. The smart defensive game
which is so typical of good, bad, or
indiffcernt Wolverine grid teams;
the cautious, safe, but always-quick-
-to-seize-a-break type of game thatj
has made Michigan peculiar in theI
football world is present in every
respect in the kind of game which
Coach Eddie Lowrey, Varsity hockey
coach, teaches his teams.
The first rule of Michigan puck-
sters is to "cover up" on defense.
When the going gets tough the for-
ward line fades back to its own red
line and as the opposing forwards
sweep down the ice, each defensive
wing takes a man. This leaves the
center and two defensive men to cover
whomever is left. With the wings
forced to the boards and the center
and a possible attacking defenseman
covered effectively by the three re-
maining Wolverines, the goalie is
given the utmost in protection.
Against such a defense, executed

with the perfection characteristic of

possible to score many goals. On
the other hand, the system has ob-
vious disadvantages. Just as Mich-
igan football teams dio not try for a1
yard on fourth down or pass on their
own 10-yard line, Michigan hockey
teams do not break three men abreast
every time they get the puck, nor do
they carry the play to their opponents
red line and the latter catches the
Wolverine forwards flat footed as he
breaks down the ice with only the de-
fense to beat.
