Radical Changes In Hockey

Left Wing, NetI
Positions May
Get New Man
Merrill, Shalek Favored
To Receive Call; David
May Not Be Used
Radical changes in the Varsity
hockey line-up appeared probable
after the conclusion of last night's
practice session, the first real work-
out of 1936. Irving Shalek, Boston
junior seemed destined to replace
Reed Low in the Wolverine nets when
the team meets the Ilderton A. C. of
London at the Coliseum Wednesday
evening and Jack Merrill, whose con-
sistent play in the first two tilts of
the season prior to the Christmas
holidays won him considerable praise,
was favored by Coach Lowrey to take
over Johnny Fabello's berth on left
Captain Larry David who sustained
a shoulder injury in the final period
of the London game and was kept
out of the McMaster contest as a re-
sult, still complained of a stiffness
in his arm, but whether or not he
will be in shape to play against Ilder-
ton Wednesday depends upon an ex-
amination at the Health Service to-
Will Oppose Vets
Ilderton is one of the strongest
hockey clubs in Ontario and will
present a veteran team to oppose
Michigan with a record of three wins
and one tie. ,
The Ilderton Club will open the
second half of the Michigan hockey
year and will be followed by the
Chatham Maroons who play in the
Coliseum Saturday night.
Vic Heyliger, who made the trip
home to Concord, Mass., for the first
time in a year-and-a-half, returned
to town Sunday and looked ready to
continue his scoring spree at the ex-
pense of Wolverine opponents.
He will team up as usual with Dick
Berryman who spent a considerable
part of the vacation period prac-
ticing in the Coliseum. Dick looks
ready for a great year. He has picked
up speed and becomes a real scoring
threat. Bengman will be a dangerous
man for rival defenses to cope with
this winter and may be expected to
do a major share of the twine bulg-
Simpson May Play
In the event that Captain David
is not available for the Ilderton tilt,
Bob Simpson Vhoturned insuch a
creditable performance against Mc-
Master, will again fill in at defense.
Big Bert Smith will occupy the
other defense post beside either Dav-
id or Simpson, and Lowrey thought
last night that Shalek would be in
the nets.
In two games the opposition has
scored ten goals on Low and Lowrey
is ready to give Shalek an oppor-
tunity to prove his worth. The re-
placement of Fabello by Merrill,
Lowrey said, was due to Fabello's
lack of aggressiveness, but added that
neither change was definite and de-
clined to name a starting line-up
until after tonight's practice.

Townsend, Fishman Star In Loss

Seven Dual Meets Carded

Athough going down to defeat before Indiana's Hoosiers, 33-27,
Michigan played some brilliant basketball, and of this Townsend's and
Fishman's play topped all. Both men tallied six points apiece tieing
with Rudness for high scoring. Fishman sunk all three of his shots
from long distances and in doing so helped keep Michigan in the run-
ning. J. Townsend played steady, fast and sure basketball. His sure
passing and good shots helped to keep the Wolverines in a threatening
position throughout the whole game.

an outside chance that Tamagno
would be in condition to start against
Minnesota Saturday night.
Thd other individual duals besides'
the Fechtman-Gee fracas kept the
crowd on edge. Rudness held the
highly-touted Ken Gunning, speedy
little Hoosier forward, to six points
while he collected the same number
himself. Gunning had an all-around
bad night, however, missing several
set-up shots. The other duel was
between John Townsend and Vern
Huffman, old rivals of high school
days. Both played good ball with
Huffman outscoring Townsend and
Townsend outpassing Huffman.
Rudness opened the scoring, hitting
a foul, and then dribbled around
John Townsend for a basket after
Earl Meyers, who started in place
of Tamagno had connected twice
from the foul line. Stout made the
Hoosier's first basket on a tip-in shot.
Michigan held an 8 to 5 lead when
Indiana's offense began to click and
the visitors ran up a 15 to 9 total
before Meyers and Rudness dropped
in two fouls to leave the score 15
to 11 at the half.
Indiana continued widening the
margin with the opening of the sec-
ond half and made it 18 to 11 when
a nice hook shot by Dick Evans, a
beautiful shot Gee to Rudness to
John Townsend, and a basket by
Meyers who took Townsend's pass
tied up the score at 18 all. Then
Indiana turned on the steam again
and piled up another lead which
Fishman's long shots almost over-
took. However, after getting with-
in two points, 29 to 27, the Mich-
igan defense, in its anxiety to get the
ball before the final gun sounded,
left itself open to Willis '.Hosler
and Huffman hit two set-ups to
clinch the victory for Indiana.
Michigan and Indiana both were
hot on their foul shots with the
Wolverines hitting nine out of 11 at-
tempts and the Hoosiers connecting
seven out of nine times.

Pu cinelli Leads
League Hitting
NEW YORK, Jan. 6. - (/P)-King-
pin of International League batsmen
in 1935 was George Puccinelli, clout-
ing outfielder who will get another
major league trial with the Phila-
delphia Athletics this spring.
Puccinelli, the official averages
showed today, not only captured the
batting championship with a .359
average but dominated virtually all
the other slugging departments.
George scored the most runs, 135;
chalked up the most hits, 209, only
player in the circuit to top the 200
mark; led in doubles with 49 and
in home runs with 53; hit for the
most bases, 435; batted in the most
runs, 172, and trailed only Marvin
Olson, of Buffalo, in the number of
passes. Olson was free ticketed to
first base 96 times, Puccinelli 80.
I-M Sports
Interfraternity and independent
teams entered in the intramural bas-
ketball, bowling and ice hockey
leagues will start the I-M winter sport
season this week with practice games
which have been arranged between
the different contestants. League play
is scheduled to begin next week and
continue on through the winter
Fifty-two squads have entered the
interfraternity class A basketball loop
and will attempt to wrest the crown
from Alpha Omega, last year's win-
ner. The winners in the 13 leagues
will meet in the play-offs to deter-
mine the ultimate victor.
Beta Theta Pi will find 27 other
teams blocking the way to another
class B championship.
