David Back To

Lead Hockey Six Against Ilderton

Post In Line
Capacity Crowd Expected
In Third Contest Of The
Season In Coliseum
That Captain Larry David- has re-
covered sufficiently from his shoulder
injury to play against the Ilderton
Athletic Club in the first Varsity
hockey game of 1936 at the Coliseum
tonight was announced by Coach
Eddie Lowrey after he had sent his
charges through a long practice drill
last night.
Jack Merrill will start on right
wing in place of Johnny Fabello and
Reed Low will again be in the nets
for the Wolverines. Lowrey has
decided to string along with the same
goalie who started in the first two
games of the season.
Have Veteran Team
The Ilderton club is scheduled to
arrive in Ann Arbor at 5 p.m. and
will leave directly after the game for
Detroit. Finalists in last year's in-
termediate O.H.A., Ilderton will pre-
sent a veteran team which at present
is atop an excellent Canadian League.
The Ilderton offense is built around
two brothers, Bruce and Joe Given,
who have teamed together so far
this season to lead the team in total
With Michigan back at full
strength for the first time since the
initial game of the year with Lon-
don, a real battle is in sight. Hey-
liger and Berryman have both been
looking better in practice than ever
before and the Canadians, who seem
confident of giving Michigan a real
drubbing, stand an excellent chance
of getting the surprise of their lives.
To Test Low
With Larry David back to aid big
Bert Smithon defense, Low should
get some real protection and he will
have no alibi if he becomes a twine
plucker tonight, according to Lowrey.
The Wolverines will be better for-
tified with reserve strength tonight
than they have been in a long time.
Lowrey will have available, and plans
to use Bob Simpson as an alternate
defenseman and both Johnny Fa-
bello and Dick Griggs will see con-
siderable action on the forward line.
To Be Real Battle
Michigan is eager for a victory
tonight to avenge the defeat handed
them by McMaster University on
the Thursday preceding the holidays.
If they can beat Ilderton tonight
they will be given at least an even
chance of stopping the strong Cha-
tham Maroons who play here Satur-
With Vic Heyliger trying for early
goals and ably supported by flying
DickBerryman and Jack Merrill, the
game should resolve itself into a
battle of two spectacular offenses in
the kind of a game which keeps the
spectators on their feet and the
red lights flashing.
The game is scheduled to com-
mence at 8 p.m. A capacity crowd
is anticipated and the usual admis-
sion prices will prevail.

Ineligibility Bogey
Halts Grid Practice
After a perusal of the scholastic
records of his charges, Coach Harry

G. Kipke has decided against the
idea of bringing out the footballs
for winter practice, at least until the
second semester begins next month.
"I'm afraid I'll have to let them
study a while longer," Kipke said.
"The practice wouldn't do us any
good if they should fall down in their
class work and be, ineligible. And,
anyway, most of my boys engage in
one or more of the winter sports and
haven't much spare time these days."
The coach said he would issue a
call for some of the slower-footed
football men, not otherwise engaged,
to practice sprints on the indoor track
in Yost Field House to improve their
running, but explained that there
would be no ball-handling until the
second semester.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Today's column is written by Ray Goodman.
SOME SPECTATORS at the Michigan-Indiana basketball game Monday
' night noticed a close resemblance between the Hoosier defensive style,
which checked the Wolverine's offense so successfully, and the defense that
Coach Tony Hinkle introduced in the second half of the Michigan-Butler1
contest at Indianapolis last Thursday. Those who noticed the coincidencet
also recalled that Coach Dean had brought his Hoosier quintet to that
game to see the Varsity win 26 to 23.
Trailing at the end of the first half by a 14 to 10 score, the Bulldogs
came into the second half and rushed Michigan in their back-court so
successfully that the Wolverines were unable to cross the 10-second line
to work any of the plays around Jake Townsend which had given them their
first period lead. With about 12 minutes of the second half gone the Varsity
found that it had scored but a few points while Butler had built up a

seemingly comfortable lead. 0
The whole Indiana team
watched Toy Jones and Ralph
Brafford, Butler guards, rush
Rudness, Tamagno, Evans, and
Fishman and stop them almost
every time that they tried to
bring the ball down the floor.
Dean and his boys saw that
Hinkle recognized that Jake
Townsend's passing was not to be
stopped once Michigan got down
the floor. They also saw that
the Varsity could be stopped if
they didn't get down the floor.
Coach Cappon expected Indiana
to use such an aggressive defense and
he drilled his team in out-maneuver-
ing such a style. The Hoosiers, how-
ever, showing themselves to be the
best defensive team in the Confer-
ence, were not to be out-maneuvered.
Not once during the 40-minutes of1
play did they allow the Wolverines
to work a set play.
Carrying Hinkle's idea farther
the big Crimson five not only
rushed Michigan in the .back
court but continued these tactics
once the Varsity crossed the mid-
dle of the floor. This was es-
pecially true of the men guarding
Michigan's back line. Rudness
and the other men in that back
line did the obvious thing when
they saw that Hoosiers were
rushing them and faked around
the close-guarding players. But
Dean had figured on this and
had Huffman and Fechtman,
who were checking Jake Towns-
end and Gee in the front line,
shifting to the driving Wolverine
while the back line defense would
pick up Jake and Gee.
This addition to Hinkle's ideas ab-
solutely stymied Michigan's attack
as the 7,500 fans who saw the game
will remember and forced the Wol-
verines to resort to long shots, push-
ins, and Indiana errors for their
It is evident that Butler and In-
diana aren't the only teams that
Gym Recruits
Bolster Frosh
During the second week in No-
vember Ken Doherty scrutinized
minutely Doc May's daily gym classes
and as a result bolstered his freshman
track squad with several likely pros-
These newcomers lacked high
school training and experience but
the thrill of running soon gripped
them and noticeable progress resulted
from steady practice. At first the
neophytes ran a few laps at an easy
pace acquiring the nack of proper
breathing, getting the feel of the
track and working out the kinks in
their leg muscles. With the acquire-
ment of a smooth stride Coach Do-
herty lengthened the distances and
quickened the pace until the recruits
were running the quarter and the
half miles in most encouraging times.
The first direct competition which
these men faced was during the
time trials held on the fourteenth of
December. At this time Myron Wal-
lace and Bill Spicer in the fast heat
of the half mile crossed the finish
line third and fourth respectively.
Their times were 2:11.6 and 2:12. R.
Dickason won this event in 2:05.4.
In the second heat Bob Wallace was
clocked at 2:13.4 for first place.
Also in the 440 yard event N. Rosen-
berg outdistanced the first group
with the time of :53.6. Ross Faulk-
ner running in the second heat easily
won to be timed at :53.2.

-have you tried

are going to use this defensive
style against Cappon's boys. It is
logical to believe that every Big
Ten quintet that Michigan faces
will do the same. Coach Piggy
Lambert of Purdue and other
coaches and scouts have been
present at the last two games
and have seen what this ag-
gressive defense can do.
In other words the Big Tenr
seems to have gotten Michigan's
number, the other nine teams
have the Indian sign on Cappy,
and his stalwarts and they're not
going to let up until the solution
to the problem is hit upon.
It may be that Cappon has found
the solution-out-maneuver the other
team-and that practice will smooth
out the Michigan offense and put
the Varsity back in the win column.
The Minnesota game this Saturday
night at Yost Field House will help
to give the answer and Purdue's
Boilermakers can be counted on to
fill in the parts that the Gophers
leave blank next Monday.
Mosconi, Blue Eyed
Italian, Thrills Fans
With Trick Billiards'
Pocket billiards de luxe. That's
what Willie Mosconi, co-holder of the
1933 national title with George Kei-
ley, played in a 125-ball exhibition
match with Jacob Sheffman, campus
champion, last Monday night in the.
Union billiard room. The show was
a part of the Better Billiards Pro-
gram being staged by the National
Billiards Association. Erwin Ru-
dolph was the first pro to perform
here this year.
In beating Sheffman 125-30, the
22-year-old Philadelphia pro set a
high-run record of 92 balls. However
this was far below his greatest string
which is 244 balls made last year in
Harrisburg, Pa. His best run in
tournamnt pay was 85 chalked up in
the 1933 world's championship meet.
Exhibits Fancy Shots
Following the match, Mosconi ex-
hibited some fancy shots which
amused the large crowd despite the
fact that it was trying to forget
Indiana's court victory. He also
showed the various billiard enthus-
iasts how to play combination shots
and put "english" on the ball.
In the recent world's pocket bil-
liard tournament held in the Penn-
sylvania Hotel, New York, Mosconi,
a rare Italian possessing blue eyes
and dark wavy hair, tied for third
with George Kelley. "I had the best
chance to win having beaten Jimmy
Caras (the present champion) and
George Kelley, but the next day I lost
to Erwin Rudolph and Pasqualie Na-
talie." Asked if he ever won the
Italian championship, now held by
Natalie, Mosconi said, "No. You see
I wasn't born in Italy. But I'd prob-
ably have to go to Ethiopia to win
it now."
Mosconi started playing billiards
when he was seven years old. He
played together with Ruth McGinnis,
present women's champion.

Indiana Swim
Captain Forced
Out For Season
Hoosier Hopes For Win
In Meet Here Saturday
Are Shattered By Blow
Fate dealt a cruel blow to In-
diana's swimming fortunes a few days
ago when Co-Captain Hank Schneid-
erman, sprinter and outstanding per-
former on the Hoosier squad, was de-
clared physically unfit for compeii-
tition during the current season be-
cause of a heart ailment.
This misfortune removes two very
probable first places from the In-
diana total of points in next Satur-
day's dual encounter with Coach
Matt Mann's Wolverines.
Schneiderman was expected to give
Indiana its only two first places in
the Intramural pool in the 50 and
100-yard free-style events, but the
burden is now placed on Co-Captain
Paul Strack, star for Coach Bob
Royer's team in the 220 and 440.
Caused Wolverines Trouble
The six-foot plus Schneiderman
caused the Wolverines most of the
trouble in their last encounter with
Indiana, dropping two hairline de-
cisions in the 50 and 100 to Ogden
Dalrymple and Bob Mowerson re-
spectively. With Dalrymple graduat-
ed and Mowerson weak from a recent
illness, the huge junior, who appears
to be headed right over the end of
the pool when he plows through the
water with his powerhouse stroke, was
expected to overcome Coach Mann's
sprinters Saturday.
Mowerson and Dalrymple were de-,
clared winners last January only after
the judges had to go into huddles
to debate the blanket finishes.
At present Paul LaPlante, slightly
behind Schneiderman in ability, will
seek to supplant his captain's efforts
in the short-distance events against
Michigan's Paul Keeler, Ed Drew,
Mark McCarthy, Manley Osgood and
I Dick Blake.
Strack Will Push Barnard
Strack will probably push Frank{
Barnard to the limit in the middle-
distance events as the husky Mich-
igan star has not yet fully rounded
into shape after a leg injury that'
handicapped him through most of
the pre-vacation practice period.
Wyatt (Fish) Meier, veteran sen-
ior, may cause Bill Crittenden and
Ed VanderVelde trouble in the 200-
yard breast-stroke, although he fin-
ished behind them when they last
met. Herb Backer will supplement
Meier in this event. The latter de-
feated his more experienced team-
mate to win in the Indiana State In-
tercollegiate Championships last'

Fred Cody, junior back-stroker

team, goes into action here Sat-
urda.y against Indiana in the first
leg of a campaign that Coach Matt
Mann hopes will lead the former
Detroit Central star to the Big
Ten and National Collegiate titles
and to a berth on the 1936 Olympic
team. Cody finished second in the
Western Conference and third in
the National 150-yard back-stroke
events last year. Both of these

Having defeated the New York Ath-

The Wolverines are out to score a
grand slam in Eastern competition.
In the surprise New York win,
which stamps the Wolverines as a
contender for the Big Ten title, Mich-
igan missed Frank Bissell, veteran
175-pounder who was not taken on
the trip when he contracted a cold.
As a result. New York allowed Coach
Keen to enter John Speicher in the
124-pound special weight division,
and the bout was won by the young
Wolverine grappler.
Captain Wally Heavenrich won a
decision over Gonzales, former East-
ern Intercollegiate champion from
Lehigh, in what Keen said was the
best match of the night. Earl Tho-
mas, N.A.A.U. 118-pound champion
in '34, won his first match as a 135-
pounder on a time advantage. Tiny
Wright won the heavyweight match
on a default from Frei, former na-
tional champion, when he hurt the
New Yorker's hand. Ed Kellman
registered Michigan's other win in the
118-pound class.
The only fall of the evening was
chalked up by New York when La
Tout, also from Lehigh, pinned Allan
Rubin to win the 125 pound match.
The other Michigan loss came after
a hard fought battle, Ben Bishop,
formerly of Lehigh and winner of
the national championship here a
few years ago as well as the "most
valuable" award, winning on a time
advantage from Louis Mascuruskus in
the 155-pound tussle.
