Plan For Minnesota
Dick Berryman To Act As
Playmaker For Second
Forward Wall
For the first time since the in-
auguration of college hockey at Mich-'
igan, a Wolverine puck team will
next semester make use of two com-
plete forward lines and change them
regularly every four or five minutes
throughout each game.
Coach Eddie Lowrey made this an-
nouncement just before the team de-
parted for Houghton yesterday, after
a conference with Gib James, in-
eligible sophomore forward, who
promised Lowrey that he will have
made up the honor points he needs
when the second half of the Varsity
hockey schedule begins against Point
Edward Feb. 15.
Will Take Gophers
With the Ottawa stick handler
available for duty, Lowrey plans to
use him on the front line with Vic
Heyliger and Johnny Fabello, while
Dick Berryman will-act as center for
the second line with Jack Merrill and
Dick Griggs as his flankers.
Nothing less than a sweep of both
Minnesota games here in February
was Lowrey's enthusiastic comment
when he learned that James was
practically certain of joining the Var-
"We'll take two from Tech down
here too," Lowrey added as he pat-
ted the smiling James on the back.
Jack Merrill, reserve wingman
whose grandmother died Wednes-
day, did not find out until almost
train time that it would not be
necessary for him to attend the
funeral. Merrill notified Lowrey
and caught the train for Hough-
ton with. the team at 8 a.m. yes-
With Heyliger's brilliant stick
handling and James' great ability as
a playmaker combined with Johnny
Fabello's speed Michigan will pre-
sent as effective a scoring, combina-
tion as Ann Arbor hockey fans have
seen in a long time. The sight of
Heyliger breaking through the de-
fense alone with no one to pass to
should come much less often next
semester with the crafty James ready
to sweep in from his left wing position
to team up perfectly with the Con-
cord Flash.
By using Dick Berryman as center,
a post at which he has had consid-
erable experience, Lowrey plans to
have a second line which will be a
constant threat on offense and a safe
line on defense.
Plan Additional Games
Griggs and Merrill are two of the
most dogged back checkers on the'
squad and teamed up with Flying
Dick will give Lowrey a strong sec-
ond forward wall.
Lowrey would not predict a win
over Pt. Edward in the first game
in which Michigan will make use of
its two lines, saying that the Wol-
verines had demonstrated their abili-
ty to beat intermediate O.H.A. teams,
but had fallen before Chatham, a
strong senior team. With more re-
serve strength than they have had
in a long time, however, the Wolver-

ines will be a different team when
they meet the classy Pt. Edward sex-
tet the night after the J-Hop, and
have a good chance of taking the
Canadian seniors into camp.
Possibilities of games with St.!
Thomas and Brantford appear fairly
certain of materializing, Lowrey said
just before he left Thursday, and
indications are that the St. Thomas
six will be booked for the 18th of
February while the clash with Brant-
ford will come early in March.

Final Grades Deal
A Severe Setback
To M.S.C. Wrestlers
Ineligibility dealt a severe blow to1
the Michigan State wrestling squad
when it was announced that Mike
Polimac, leading candidate for the
175-pound assignment, and Bart Col-
lings, veteran 145-pounder, would
not be able to compete against Mich-
igan in the Wolverine's home opener
to be staged at 7:30 p.m. Saturday
in the Yost Field House.
The loss of Polimac leaves Coach
Collins without a grappler in the 175-
pound class and will make him use
a lighter man in that bracket. How-
ev'er Coach Keen was also forced to
revamp his tentative lineup due to the
arm injury suffered by Louis Mascur-
uskus, veteran 155-pounder, which
will keep him out for the rest of
the season. Both coaches are still
undecided as to who they will start
and victory for either team will de-
pend greatly on their final selection.
Practically the whole Varsity squad
went through a spirited drill, although
Captain Wally Heavenrich watched
the proceedings from the sidelines in
order to give his bruised knees a
much-needed rest. Frank Bissell, who
will grapple in Mascuruskus' 155-
pound post, worked out with Robert
Brumby. John Speicher, 118-pounder,
furnished the opposition for Gard
Slocum and Malcolm Marks, two
126-pounders. Arnold Gross, leading
prospect for the 165-pound job, op-
posed Bill Lowell, who is fighting to
hold down his 175-pound berth.

(Continued from Page 2)1
Michigan, including the three-year
The eligibility rules referred to1
were those of the Western Confer-
ence barring more than three years'
of competition and adopted in 1905.
Michigan had left the Conference in1
1908 through a difference in the in-
terpretation of the three-year rule,
Michigan refusing to apply the ruling
retroactively as the Conference had
decided to do.
According to The Daily, the eli-
gibility.trules were inserted in the
contract contrary to usual custom
and against the protests of Notre

the contest, "authorities at the Cath-I
olic institution refused to fulfill the
contract under which the game was
to have been played, insisting on us-
ing Dimick and Philbrook, ineligible
under the terms of the agreement.
The Michigan Board in Control can-
celled the game Friday noon."
Board Accuses 'Ringers' 1
The Board's statement at that time
said, "Philbrook and Dimick, who
after competing five years in inter-
collegiate athletics in Northwestern
colleges, and being barred from fur-
ther competition there, had come to
Notre Dame and had already com-
pleted two additional years there."
Almost simultaneous was the an-
nouncement of a Western Conference
arbitrator who had conducted an in-
vestigation into the records of the two
following their disqualification from
a Conference track meet, on the same
grounds cited by Michigan. That an-
nouncement fully substantiated Mich-
igan's charges.
On the following day Notre Dame
authorities issued a statement that
Michigan had intended to use two
men disqualified by the three-year
i rule. The men in question, however,
were said by The Daily to be eligible
under the provisions of the Michigan
interpretation barring retroactive.
action of that rule.
Today's Free Press column by Mr.
Edgar, however, gives still another
Notre Dame answer, through a "pil-
lar in Notre Dame football tradi-
tion" "we were told on our way to
Ann Arbor for the game that if we
played our two tackles (the Dimick
and Philbrook protested against by
Michigan), who had come to Notre
Dame from a junior college in Walla
Walla, Wash., the game would not go
on. Our tackles could not understand

this calling off of the game because
one of their teammates from Walla
Walla was playing for Mr. Yost on
the Wolverine team."
That Michigan had had difficulty
with regard to ineligible players was
revealed in the editorial columns of
the Nov. 6, 1910 Daily as the editors
contrasted the attitude of Michigan
authorities toward a 1909 player and
the Notre Dame authorities at the
time of the 1910 difficulties.
The Daily's reference was to Joy
Miller, an end on the 1909 team and
later elected to the captaincy of the
1910 team, whom the Michigan au-
thorities discovered following the 1909
season had not been enrolled in the
Commenting editorially at ' that
I time, The Daily said, "discovery that
Michigan has played a man who was
ineligible under rules governing our
athletics, and that that man had
helped to make possible those achieve-
ments (a successful season) humi-
lated us more than a season of unin-
terrupted defeats could have done.
"But the realization that it was a
mistake -a terrible one to be sure,
but an honest one, is now apparent.
Not even his teammates suspected
that he was not regularly enrolled in
the University."
Explaining the mistake the editorial
pointed out that with 1,300 students
in the engineering college, "scattered
as they are, the error looks less glar-
ing and more natural."
Take Immediate Action
University authorities took imme-
diate action upon the discovery, de-
priving Miller of the captaincy, tak-
ing away his Varsity letter, apologiz-
ing to 1909 grid opponents, and dis-
ciplining him academically.
With that in mind, The Daily's edi-
torial expression following the can-
cellation of the game came under the
heading "Honor or Expediency -
Which?" and said, "In striking con-
trast to the action of the Michigan
authorities in the Miller incident is
the recalcitrant attitude which Notre
Dame has exhibited in the Philbrook-
Dimick controversy - Notre Dame
gave no consideration to the ethical
aspect of the situation, what they
wanted was to win the game or to

In Dual Races
Michigan State Concedes
First Two Places In Each
Event To Wolverines
Coach Matt Mann and 10 Varsity
swimmers will leave Ann Arbor today
by automobile at 2 p.m. for East Lan-
sing where they will meet Michigan
State tonight in the second intercol-
legiate dual meet of the current sea-
The Spartans should not prove very
much of an obstacle for the Wolver-
ines in the last meet of the first se-
mester, in fact Coach Russ Daubert
is claiming nothing better than third
places in every event where Michigan
has two men swimming.
Bill Bell, sophomore, and Fred Zie-
gel, football star, may sneak in some
unexpected points in the 50-yard
dash over Paul Keeler and Dick Blake,
but Michigan seems to have the rest
of the events well in hand. Mark
McCarty and Ed Drew will swim the
100 for Coach Mann's squad against
Bell and Warren Bissell.
Jim Harryman, junior Spartan rec-
ord-holder, was beaten easily by
Frank Barnard in the 220 and 440
last year, and with Barnard coming
up fast after a late start this season,
should not do much better tonight.
Harryman will be assisted by Don
Trapp and John Massey in the two
events, while Barnard will be the
lone Wolverine entry.
The 150-yard back-stroke call will
find but one Michigan man, Bob
Mowerson, performing against Tom
Morris, last year's captain, and Harry
Carr, outstanding sophomore.
Jack Kasley and Ed VanderVelde
will as usual carry the Wolverine
breast-stroke burden in the 200-yard
event, and both are favored to fin-
ish well ahead of two Lansing boys,
Alan Black and Alan Brightman.
No mention of divers has come
out of the East Lansing camp, and
with Art Herner out of school, Cap-
tain Frank Fehsenfeld and Der John-
ston will battle it out between them-
selves for first.

Varsity Looks Fast
Following the Minnesota tilt, the
Michigan squad will entrain for Chi-
cago to meet Bill Haarlow and the
Maroons at Chicago's field house
Monday night.
The squad was put through a long
session yesterday, practicing carry-
ing the ball down the floor against
a close-guarding defense like that
used by Indiana and Purdue, drilling
on offensive plays as well as the
usual scrimmage.
Using Jake Townsend as a safety-
valve when the defense tied the ball
up in the back court, the Varsity
was coming down the floor faster
that they have against any of the
teams that used this type of defense.
The Varsity also looked good in its
offensive drill with Gee working in
from the side well.
Nose Out Reserves
In the scrimmage against the sec-
ond five, which showed up so satis-
factorily against Chicago last Sat-
urday, the Varsity encountered plenty
opposition nosing out the Reserves
17 to 16 by virtue of a four basket
rally in the last few minutes of play.
Victories over Minnesota and Chi-
cago, both of which were defeated by
the Michigan team by top-heavy
scores in the last two weeks would
give the Wolverines an undisputed
hold on third place with Northv estern
playing only one game, against Chi-
cago, over the week end. The Chi-
cago game will be the last for the
Varsity until Feb. 15th when it plays
