Against Miners '
Merrill May Not Go
Coach Lowrey Confident
That Team Will Repeat
Last Year's Success
Taking the same squad which made
the Minnesota trip a week ago, Coach
Eddie Lowrey and his Varsity hockey
team will entrain at 8 a.m. this morn-
ing for the long trip to the upper
peninsula to engage the Michigan
Tech Miners in a two-game series
at Houghton Friday and Saturday
With Reed Low back in the fight
for the goalie's position by dint of
some excellent work in the nets this
week, Lowrey did not decide upon his
goal tender until after the conclusion
of last night's practice. Both boys
looked well in the final drill of the
week, but Lowrey selected Shalek
to make the trip, believing that the
Boston goal guard would have the
advantage of more recent competi-
tion and remembering particularly
his performance in the second Minne-
sota game when he blanked the Goph-
ers with the exception of one shot
which Lowrey claims a Minnesota
forward batted into the net with his
Merrill May Not Go
Whether Jack Merrill, able reserve
winger, would make the trip was still
in doubt late last night. Merrill re-
ceived word of the death of his grand-
mother last evening and his accom-
panying the team hinged on whether
or not he would have to attend the
.He feared last night that he would
not know definitely one way or an-
other until almost train time this
this morning. In the event that Mer-
rill does not make the trip, Lowrey
will take only eight men and will
have in additioncto his regular start-
ing line-up Dick Griggs as relief
forward and Bob Simpson as an al-
ternate defenseman.
Lowrey Is Confident
Lowrey was confident of taking
both games from the Miners despite
Michigan's lack of reserve strength,
and added that the team would waste
little time in going after Coach Bert
Noblett's team. The Tech sextet has
enjoyed a fairly successful season to
date, but Lowrey believes that the
losses which the miners sustained
through graduation and ineligibility
will be adequate to insure the Wolver-
ines of a pair of victories.
Last year Michigan took three out
of four games from Tech, dropping
one lone contest at Houghton on a
couple of fluke goals.

Michigan May Lose Big Ten Swimming









THIS DEPARTMENT HAS, during the past week, expressed a definite atti- j
tude toward the resumption of athletic relationships between Mich-
igan and Notre Dame, through the efforts of Fred DeLano in a column last
Sunday which strongly urged a reconciliation, and through an interview
conducted Tuesday night by this writer which placed definite responsibility
for that resumption upon Michigan authorities, particularly Director Fielding h
H. Yost.-
That attitude, we definitely feel, is fully justified by the character of N
the contest which would result. As was originally said, the rivalry would
be a "natural" and would have mutual benefits to the two schools in a finan-a
cial way. As being interested in the spectacle of sport, the desire for a meet-o
ing to provide one of athletics' greatest spectacles, is justified.c
Another viewpoint has been brought to our attention, however, o
a viewpoint which we fully appreciate although it is difficult to t
subscribe to it for reasons apparent from what has been said above. e
Because we appreciate the viewpoint, and because of the importance s
implicit in its statements, deserving of as serious consideration by 4
interested parties whether sports writers, authorities, athletes or f
students, as anythng we have said, we print the following letter:
"After reading your article in this morning's Daily, following as it does1
the article Sunday which directly asked for a football contest between the
Universities of Michigan and Notre Dame, I am moved to answer in defense
of Mr. Yost and the Michigan athletic board should they make or enter-
tain no overtures toward a renewal of relationships between the two schools,
as I am sure they will not.t
"In the first place, may I point out the character of the Notre Damet
athletic policy in contrast to that of Michigan. Athletics at Notre Damel
admittedly have a dual purpose. advertising for the institution and financial4
benefit fo the institution. Whether in order to best realize those two pur-
poses the school resorts to unfair practices of any type is immaterial - the
unique, as compared to Michigan, basis of the school's policy remains.
"Michigan, need I point out, has no consideration for either purposel
as it considers intercollegiate competition to be above all else the cap-stonei
of the school's physical education program. It is upon that basis that Mich-1
igan is discriminating in its choice of athletic opponents.
"In the second place,'I nust take exception to the manner in
which Mr. Yost was singled out in your article this morning as
the 'lone obstacle.' It is true that Mr. Yost is the key figure as he
stands at the head of the athletic set-up here, but at the same time I
feel that the entire Board in Control of Athletics and the coaching
staff, imbued as they are with the Michigan ideal I have outlined
in the preceding paragraph and as it has been sponsored in the
past by Mr. Yost, are as one with him in declining to meet a school
whose athletic policies are so at odds with Michigan's.
"It is not at all that Michigan would be adopting a "holier-than-thou"
attitude, for no reflection whatsoever is made upon the Notre Dame policies
nor upon individual practices, for I agree with you that their formal require-
ments are quite as severe as several of Michigan's annual opponents. The
point is simply that Michigan does not choose to meet a school whose funda-
mental attitude toward intercollegiate athletics is so lacking in accord with
its own.
"Now for your obvious answers. As I say, I will agree that Notre
Dame's eligibility requirements and general conduct are no less
acceptable than those of at least one of Michigan's regular oppo-
nents. But, resorting to platitudes, two wrongs do not make a right.
Further, as one entirely in sympathy with the Michigan conception
of the place of intercollegiate athletics, I should like to see an under-
standing reached with those Michigan opponents whose conception
in the same respect is less restrictive.
"As for the prospect of the matching of two 'natural' rivals,
I am also agreed, and as a football fan I would certainly like to see
a matching of really representative (representative as regards to
over-all records) teams of the two schools. I simply feel that the
considerations which I have outlined first outweigh this latter
We regret that no name can be given by this correspondent, for he has
well stated the point of view which opposes that taken by ourselves and
s others, and a point of view which has many supporters as well.
r And so the matter rests. If Coach Yost and the Board in Control of
y Physical Education take no action, as our correspondent feels they won't,
e they can be credited with no less than strong-willed idealism as their
- decision will be criticized by those who frankly and only ask for the meeting
r of two teams for the sake of the game alone.

[owa Is Team
To Pull Upset,{
Coach Asserts
Formerly Ineligible Sprint
Man Puts Hawkeyes In
Role Of Menace
That Michigan will fall from its
high and mighty throne at the top
of the Big Ten swimming world is by
no means an impossibility, Coach
Matt Mann declared last night.
"I'm not trying to be pessimistic
and I do not want to sob,'" Coach
Mann said, "but after looking things'
over carefully, I have come to the I
conclusion that our position as the
best team in the Conference is not
overly secure."
The announcement of the return
to eligibility of Ray Walters, sprint-
er, and Fred Haskins, breast-stroke
swimmer, is one of the big reasons
why the Wolverines mentor sees de-
feat a possibility.
Strong In Sprints
Walters can do 53 seconds in the
100-yard free-style, and with Jack
Sieg and Bob Christians completes
a trio of dashmen that will probably
wreak havoc with Michigan points
in the short-distance events.
Haskins and Bill Wehmeyer are
two breast-strokers who stand be-
tween Michigan's Jack Kasley and
his understudy, Ed VanderVelde, in
ability, so the damage this Hawkeye
can do-is plenty.j

Westerfield who lost to Fred Cody,
Varsity star, in the Conference meet
but defeated thetMichigan performer
in the National Collegiate meet. So
here the decision is a tossup.
Adolf Jacobsmeyer split with Mich-
igan's Frank Barnard in the distance
events last year and there is no rea-
son to believe that the samesresult
might not happen again this season.
Christen Diving Threat
Michigan's five divers can probably
take the majority of the places off the
springboard, but Arn Christen placed
over two of them in a dual meet last
season, so he must be considered a
The sprint relay decision leans to-
ward Iowa and the medley a trifle to-
wards Michigan, so it does appear in
the final roundup that Coach Mann
is not just being pessimistic. He
has just cause for worry.
Michigan outscored Iowa badly in
the Big Ten meet last year and again
in a dual meet, but while the poini
differences was rather large, the ac-
tual finishes were close. What Coacl
Mann fears this year, with several
stars gone and with Iowa greatly
strengthened, is a reversal of thes
close decisions.
Final Track Trials Of

After Saturday's performance
most of the drilling done for the nex
three weeks will be individual due t
