HOUGHTON. Mich., Jan. 25. -
(Special) -The Wolverine hockey
team tonight lost the last of a two-
game series to a fast-skating, hard-
checking Michigan Tech sextet by a
score of 1-0 before more than 3,000
fans who jammed the Tech rink to
see the Miners sweep the first series
of a home-and-home encounter be-
tween the tw6 teams for the mythical
state championship.
Hugh Stack, spare Tech wingman,
drilled in the only score of the game
after 11 minutes of play in the first
period when he picked up a loose
puck in center ice and caught Irv Sha-
lek, Michigan goalie, off balance with
his hard shot.
Michigan made its strongest bid
for the game in the third period
when, with a Tech defenseman on
the penalty bench, Coach Eddie Low-
rey ordered a five-man offense down
the ice. The home team presented an
airtight defense, however, and shut
out the weary Wolverines.
Tech will come to Ann Arbor for
the two return games Feb. 28 and Feb.
29 to meet a Michigan rink squad
fortified by the addition of Gib James,
sophomore Canadian star who is at
present ineligible, but who is expected
to regain his standing during the ap-
proaching examinations. At that time
Lowrey expects to be able to put a
12-man squad on the ice for the
game, in contrast to the nine-man
squad which made the trip to Hough-

Harry "Tir.y" Wright (left) and Earl Thomas (right) again turned
in fine performances last night in the Michigan wrestling team's match
with Michigan State which the Varsity won by a 15 to 10% score.
Wright gained his fourth consecutive pin in the heavyweight division to
give the Wolverines their winnng margin. Thomas, wrestling at 126-
pounds for the first time this year, won his match with a 9:24-minute

Yanks Receive
No Word From

$1-A-Year Men

NEW YORK, Jan. 25.-- (/P)- The
Yankees haven't had any word yet
from the two players to whom they
mailed "conditional" contracts a few
days ago, Fred (Dixie) Walker and
Frank Crosetti. If those two reflect
awhile upon what happened to last
year's "dollar-a-year men,"nthey may
hesitate before they sign the papers.
Meanwhile, a number of other
slightly damaged stars are hoping
the rest of the clubs don't fall in
line with the Yankee idea of not dis-
cussing salaries until they're sure the
players will be able to perform their
allotted roles during the season.
Van Atta Went To Browns
A year ago Walker, Earle Combs,
Johnny Allen and Russell Van Atta,
all affilicted by injuries either dur-
ing the preceding season or during
the winter, received those contracts
that were supposed to hold only until
they proved they were in shape. They
were all successful in winning regular
contracts but Walker who is the only
one who will be backthis spring try-
ing for a regular place on the New
York team.
Van Atta, unable to regain his prev-C
ious form, was shipped to the Browns,
where he became a mainstay of the
mound staff. Walker, whose trouble
had been in a lame throwing arm, in-
jured the same wing in a pre-season
exhibition, remained on the bench
for awhile and finished the season
at Newark.

Chicago Next For
Wolverine Carers
Michigan's basketball team will
play its last game before the final-
exam layoff tomorrow night againts
Capt. Bill Haarlow and the Chicago
Maroons at Chicago in the return
encounter of the two game series.
In their first meeting with Chicago
at Yost Field House Jan. 18th the
Wolverines, scoring almost at will
overwhelmed the Windy City five by
a 51 to 33 score despite the efforts of
the high-scoring Haarlow who tallied
16 points.
Tomorrow's game will be the last
chance for Jake Townsend, Michi-
gan's sophomore ace, to swell his
Conference scoring total until Feb.
17th when the Wolverines will meet
the league-leading Indiana five at
Bloomington, Ind.

In Mile Raee
Birleson Wins 440-Yard
Run Ahead Of Stiles,
Patton And Mason
Michigan's Varsity track coach,
Chuck Hoyt, put his indoor squad
through its last time trials of the
semester yesterday at Yost Field,
-ouse andyattheir conclusion ex-
pressed real satisfaction with the
performances and with the improve-
ment over marks made a week ago.
As the time trials held last week
irdicated strongly that the Wolver-
ines would again have a champion-
ship team, Hoyt's assertion that there
was improvement shown yesterday
definitely establishes Michigan as the
outstanding contender for the Con-
ference title it now holds. The next
mass performance of the squad will
be the night of Feb. 18 when the
state A.A.U. relay carnival will be
held in the Field House.
Outstanding in yesterday's trials
were the marks turned in by Ray
Fink in the mile run and Stan Birle-
son in the 440. Fink led Clayton
Brelsford, Conference indoor mile
champion ,all the way and repelled
a alst lap rally to win in excellent
time. Birleson turned in equally as
good a record in his event to finish
in front of Stiles, Patton, and Mason.
In the half mile Howard Davidson
finished in front of Ben Starr, clip-
ping more than two seconds off his
mark of a week ago. Starr's perfor-
mance here was especially cheering
t0 Hoyt for it established him as a
better half miler than miler, sub-
stantiating Hoyt's theory that such
would be the case.
Walter Stone won the two mile run
from Bill Staehle without trouble.
In the 60-yard dash Sam Stoller,
veteian sprint man, finished first in
both heats while Bob Osgood took
the high hurdles.
Jim Weaver, Pittsburgh's pitching
tower, is spending the winter dis-
guised as an automobile salesman in
Cincinnati. His boss is Sidney Well,
former president of the Reds.

Following the lead set by other
mid-western and eastern schools, Un-
iversity of Michigan basketball is en-
joying real popularity this year. How-
ever, unlike the booms at most of
the other schools this popularity is
neither "unparalelled" or "new."
With six home games played at
Yost Field House, more than 30,000
cage fans have watched the Varsity
quintet perform, with ,500 the sea-
son's high, on hand for the Indiana
catastrophe and never fewer than
5,000 in the stands for any of the six
These figures, imposing as they
may seem today, are almost small in
comparison with the attendance of
the years from 1925 to 1929, when
the Wolverines were, along with Pur-
due and Indiana, outstanding threats
in the Conference title race.
Coach Benny Ooosterbaan, who led
the Conference scorers in 1925 while
the Varsity was winning the Big Ten
crown, recalling those days of Mich-
igan basketball glory, remembers
overflowing crowds at every home
game. At that time the end bleach-
ers were larger than the present
stands and added seats were set up
on top of the section at the north
end of the building which houses the
locker rooms.
Harry Tillotson, ticket chairman,
recalls crowds forming at the field
house doors as early as 5:15 p.m.
when the spectators were not ad-

mitted until 6:15 p.m. and the open-
ing tip-offs were scheduled for 7:30
Interest in the hardwood sport
reached its peak in 1929 when the
Wolverines, known at the time as the
"Michigan Iron-Men," staged an ,
amazing rally late in the season after
a medicore start to share the Con-
ference crown with Wisconsin. In
the final game of the season the
Varsity drubbed the title-bound
Badgers, 37 to 22, before a crowd of
9,500. Not only were the stands
packed but even rafters were filled
to overflowing.
With the drop in Michigan cage
prestige came an accompanying drop
in the attendance totals. The Michi-
gan Normal tilt which opened the
present season was the beginning of
a "Renaissance period" for which the
Townsend brothers are held re-
sponsible. While Mr. Tillotson sees
only the Purdue game which will
close the season as a possible rival for
the games of the past, he predicts
capacity houses at every game in
1937 and 5:15-crowds again.
Louisiana State football players will
participate in 10 games in 1936 open-
ing with Rice at B'aton Rouge Sept. 26
and closing with Tulane Nov. 28 in the
same city.
