Captain Larry David will lead the
Michigan hockey team out on the ice
for the last time tonight when the
Wolverine sextet clashes with Wayne
University in the Detroit Olympia at
It will be master against pupil
when the Tartars face-off against the
Wolverines tonight in the final game
of the season for both teams.
Attempting to outfox Eddie Low-
rey, one of the smartest coaches in
hockey today, will be Jack Tompkins,'
Michigan All-American goalie of sev-
eral years ago, and a pupil of Low-
rey's from 1930-32.
Campus interest in the Michigan-
Wayne clash has been so pronounced
that bus companies are planning
special rates into Detroit for the
game. The Daily has agreed to co-
operate to the extent of notifying the
bus company of the number of fans
planning to make the trip if they will
call during the afternoon.
Out Numbered Again
Michigan will enter tonight's game
with just seven men, and the larger
Olympia ice will be of no aid to the
Wolverines who will be badly out-
numbered for the third time in five
Gib James will be unable to play
tonight, according to Lowrey's state-
ment yesterday. The Canadian soph-
omer's badly bruised back is still very
stiff, and it is the probability that
James would not be able to play for
a week or more that prompted Low-
rey to cancel any plans ror a post-
season game with Chatham.
Wayne will line up tonight with
Jim Avery at center, Jim Seidell on
one wing and Stan Newsted, former
All-City center from Cooley High, on
the other. Captain Murray Robert-
son and Adam Widlak will team up
on defense and Stayner Durocher,
Windsor youth, will be in the Tartar
Six Regulars To Start
With just seven men at his dis-
posal, Lowrey can not be very choosy
about his line-up. The six regulars
who played all of the second Tech
game will start, and in all probability
finish, the game for the Wolverines.
Two of the famous Michigan Min-
ute-Men, Vic Heyliger and Johnny
Fabello, will be at their accustomed
posts on the front line. The third,
Irwin Shalek, will be kicking out fly-
ing pucks after his best style. Dick
Merrill will complete the forward
wall, and on defense will be Captain
Larry David and Bob Simpson. Frit2

Both Michigan and Wayne met
McMaster University earlier in the
year and both met defeat at the
hands of the Canadian team, but the
Wolverine's 6-5 loss was hardly as
humiliating as the 11-1 shellacking
which the Tompkins team took.
Michigan loses only Captain David
from tonight's starting line-up, while
Johnny Fabello and Bob Simpson, in
addition to the injured Gib James
have two years of competition re-

Hi ghly Praised
Hoyt Is Entirely Satisfied
With Track Team After
Coach Chuck Hoyt had nothing but
praise for his Varsity track team yes-
terday in speaking of its stellar show-
ing Saturday when Michigan's six-
year Conference dual meet record was
upheld by a victory over the power-
ful Hoosiers of Indiana.
Although he spoke highly of the
entire squad, Hoyt was particularly
loud in his praise of Stan Birleson
who took second in a record breaking
440. Birleson was performing in his
first meet of the year, having de-
veloped a leg injury four days before
the A.A.U. meet. Since that time the
Michigan quarter mile star ran in
practice only once for speed but.
nevertheless, ran a marvelous race
Saturday only to be nosed out by
Malcolm Hicks of Indiana in :50.4.
Harvey Patton's performance in'
the relay was also lauded by his
coach. Patton took the baton in sec-
ond place but made up enough dis-
tance to give Birleson a commanding
lead. Hoyt stated that he did not
think Michigan would have as tough
a dual meet the rest of the year and
although he does not think Ohio
State has a great team, especially
since Jesse Owens became ineligible,
he expects Friday's meet to be a good
Ohio State was beaten two weeks
ago by Indiana, 72-32. With Michi-
gan holding a victory over the latter
it rates as a heavy favorite to add
another win to its long unbroken
Ohio State possesses definite
strength in the field events and short
runs, however, but slams for Michi-
gan in the mile and two mile are not
improbable and a great number of
seconds and thirds should be taken
by Michigan men. Albritten, star
Buckeye high jumper has done bet-
ter than six feet five inches in his last
two meets and is favored to win the
Conference title March 14.
Coach Matt Mann and twelve Var-
sity swimmers leave for Columbus
by auto at 3 p.m. today to meet Ohio
State in the final dual meet of the;
1935-36 season tomorrow night.
The lineup that will attempt to
make it two in a row over the Buck-
eyes for the season and finish the
current dual-meet campaign with-
out a blemish differs in one and pos-
sibly two places from the one that
defeated the strong Iowa team here
Friday night. Capt. Frank Fehsen-
feld is being replaced by Ned Diefen-
dorf although Ben Grady and Der
Johnston are scheduled to do the
diving, and Coach Mann has yet to
decide whether or not Bill Critten-
I den will supplant Ed VanderVelde
in the breast-stroke.
The remainder of the squad is
composed of Jack Kasley, F1tank
Barnard, Harry Rieke, Bob Mowerson,
Ed Drew, Erwin McCarty, Dick Blake
and Manley Osgood.
Barnard, improved from the last
meet with the Buckeyes, will be seek-
ing revenge for the two defeats suf-
fered at the hands of Dexter Wood-
ford in the 440 and 220-yard free-
style events and is favored to turn
the tide on his old rival despite the
handicap of a strange pool.
The Wolverine springers will also
be out to make amends for the
only other victory the Scarlet and
Grey mermen chalked up -in the
Along with the Barnard-Woodford
duals in the middle-distances, the
feature race in the meet promises
to be Blake's second meeting with
the renowned Charlie Salie, erratic
All-American bckstroker and cap-
tain of the Buckeyes. Rieke won by
a yard in their first meeting and since
then has beaten Dick Westerfield, an-
other All-American from Iowa.
