Michigan's Wolverine hockey team,
still showing the result of its week-
end tiff with the Gophers at Minne-
apolis, thoroughly outskated the On-
tario Agricultural College of Guelph
at the Coliseum last night to coast
through to an easy 5-3 victory in a'
game that was marked by some very
good and some extremely bad hockey.
While Michigan thoroughly out-
played the Ontario Agricultural Col-
lege team, they found it considerably
more difficult to cope with two or
three bald and greying old war horses
whom the Canadians must have
picked up along the way.
These grizzled veterans, together
with two or three good looking young-
sters, supplied all the Ontario spark,
and although the scoring was well
divided amongst the Canadians, their
counters were more the result of dame
fortune's whims than good hockey.
Body Cheeks Well
At times Michigan looked like a
great hockey club. Big Bert Smith
gave promise of turning into a de-
fenseman such as Michigan has not
seen in a long time as he teamed
up with Captain Larry David to keep
the invaders pretty well in check
throughout the game.
Smith gave a beaiiful exhibition
of body checking in the first period
as he twice set the bald headed Mr.
Burgur on his back-end to take away
a good deal of the old man's enthu-
siasm for soloing down the ice.
The Concord Flash distinguished
himself as per usual, collecting one
goal and four assists to bring his
scoring mark for the season so far
to 24 points.
The Wolverines wasted little time
in getting started as Flying Dick
Berryman back-handed a rebound
past Goalie Scott's shoulder after
less than four minutes of play.
Heyliger made it 2-0 several min-
utes later when he swept around the
defense and sniped the far corner
with a hard drive.
The Canadians tallied their first
counter of the game when Shalek
made a nice save from Brill only to
have Warner pick up the loose puck
and flip a shot over the goalie as he
lay prostrate on the ice.
Ferguson tied up the score at 2-
all on a pass from Vemehuk near the
middle of the second stanza, but Bur-
gur was penalized for body-checking
and Michigan put on the pressure.
Berryman, Fabello and Heyliger
teamed up to produce a score. Berry-
man drove home a deft shot which
caught Scott unaware, and a moment
later Heyliger passed to Fabello on
the right wing and Johnny blazed
the puck in from fifteen feet out.
Ready made it 4-3 for Ontario late
in the same period when he took a
pass from Carter and rammed the
puck between Shalek's pads as he
went to his knees.
The third period saw play quicgen
as both teams made frequent scoring
bids, but with the exception of Fa-
bello's goal in the first five minutes,
there was no further scoring.
Heyliger stick handled his way
down the ice and just as he hit the
defense, laid a beautiful pass on Fa-
bello' stick as the winger broke into
the clear from his right flank posi-
tion. Johnny made no mistake as
he rode in on Scott and outfoxed him
with a shot dead to the corner.

"SO YOU'RE A SPORTS WRITER"

spired afflictions as mumps. "Well,
that's going to make it fine.
"You see, I'm quite a fan myself,
especially baseball. You know, the
American League's going some race
this year, Yawkey's millions against
Cochrane's Tigers. It'll be a strug-
"Oh yes," authoritatively, "but that
Tiger outfield will make a lot of dif-
ference this year. Wait'll you see
that old trio smacking the ball -
Fox, White and Goslin."
"White! Why he'll go on the block
with Simmons in there."
Oh yes, Simmons. Well, we'd show
this guy yet. "Maybe you're right,
but it'll be a cinch. Those Red Sox
haven't got a starting pitcher."
"Oh, I don't know about that. Far-

games won and Grove only led the
league in earned runs. Then all
they've got left is Marcum and Oster-
meuller and Rhodes. Why if they,
all come through they'll have a staff
like the Giants."
The Giants - there was our chance
for a thrust, but his eyebrows were
arching now. Anyway, let it go. "Say,
there's a team that won't slip again."
And the big thrust - this would floor
him, "with Ryan back in the infield
they'll have all the life they need.
Look what they would have done last
year if he hadn't got hurt." There!

you get that stuff? Why Ryan was

Chicago Grid Fans'
In a recent poll conducted by the
Chicago American its readers chose
an all-time all-star Michigan foot-
ball team, which included men who
played as far back as 1904. The Chi-
cago paper's readers nominated 55
different men as their choices for the
11 positions on the mythical team.
Bennie Oosterbaan, All-American
in 1925, 1926, and 1927 and member
of the present Wolverine coaching
staff polled the highest of votes, col-
lecting 960 out of a possible 1000.
Willie Heston was runner-up in the
count coming in for 930 tallies.

By RICHARD LA MARCA
Why does Oklahoma A. and M.
year after year dominate the Na-
tional intercollegiate and National
A.A.U. wrestling tournaments? This
question is continually being asked by
wrestling enthusiasts throughout the
In an attempt to solve this "insis-
tent inquiry," Cliff Keen, Varsity mat
coach, was asked what he thought
was responsible for Oklahoma A. and
M's. continued success since he, him-
self, is a graduate as well as a mem-
ber of Varsity grappling teams of '22,
'23 and '24 in addition to having won
the honor of being the first Cowboy
wrestler to go undefeated in three
years of competition.
Coach Keen answered: "Ed Gal-
lagher (Oklahoma A. and M. ring-
master), I would say, is mainly re-
sponsible because he not only created
interest in the sport which made it
the natural sport at Oklahoma A.
and M., but he also taught it thor-
oughly so that practically the whole
campus understands it."
Wrestling Very Popular
The Varsity mentor went on to cite
for another reason: "Due to Gal-
lagher's popularization of wrestling
at Oklahoma A. and M., about 300
high schools have adopted interschol-
astic wrestling with approximately
2,500 boys competing which means
there is plenty of fine material for
Oklahoma A. and M. as well as all
the other colleges in Oklahoma.
"I remember in the three years that
I was there we never lost a dual meet
and, of course, all of us, who had
wrestled together since our sopho-
more year, were and when gradua-
tion time came along thinking that
it was all over. Yet in the 1925-26
national meet Oklahoma A. and M.
won six out of the seven national
Whether Oklahoma A. and M. can
duplicate this feat this season re-
mains to be seen for the old "grad-
uation cycle" wiped out most of the
grappling stars who again annexed
the National intercollegiate and Na-
tional A.A.U. team titles last year.
Seven national champions will be
missing from the 1936squad. The
only remaining 1935 titlist is Lloyd
Ricks, light heavyweight.
In his two decades as coach, Gal-
lagher, who organized wrestling in
the Southwestern Conference back in
1918, led his teams through 16 unde-
feated seasons. Oklahoma A. and M.
squads chalked up, in the 16 years,
103 dual meet victories, four defeats
and two ties includingan unbroken
run of 73 wins between 1921 and
1932, their last beatings, previous to
the above string, being suffered at the
hands of Nebraska and Ames.
At present Oklahoma A. and M.
boasts an intact victory series of 25
since 1933. The only college team
to defeat the Cowboy aggregation
since 1921 is the University of Okla-
homa which is coached by Paul Keen,
brother of the Wolverine mentor.
Oklahoma managed to eke out a
"famous" 13-12 victory.
