Wolverines Meet Western Ontario Pucksters Here


Spirited Drill
Boosts Hopes
For First Win
Coach Lowery Will Start
Same Team That Faced
Brantford Saturday
Defense Is Problem
Mustangs Rank With Best
In Canadian Collegiate
Hockey Circles
A Michigan hockey team that has I
scored eight goals in two games and
has still to count a coup, will be out
on the Coliseum ice at 8 p.m. to-
night determined to cop their first
victory of the season from the high-
ly touted University of Western On-
tario six.
The Wolverines, bitter over their
one goal defeat at the hands of the
Brantford Leafs Saturday, went
through a spirited practice session
last night that bouyed the hopes of
Michigan supporters. '
Coach Eddie Lowrey will stand pat
on the line-up which he sent to
the post against Brantford Saturday,
but looks for a lot of improvement.
Captain Vic Heyliger, although he
scored two goals against the Leafs,
was decidedly off form last week, and
if he can regain the precise and ac-
curate timing that made him the
outstanding centerin college hockey
last season, the Wolverines will real-
ly start to go.
Flanker Failed To Cover
On defense, there is still roon for
improvement. The forwards are get-
ting caught by fast breaking offenses
that leave the whole burden on the
two defensemen, and it was the fail-
ure of the flanker to cover men in
the clear, as well as two sloppy plays
that got past Bill Wood, that cost
Michigan the ball game Saturday.
The second line of Berryman,
Cooke, and Merrill was a greatly im-
proved offensive threat, but on de-
fensive around their own goal still
looked weak.
Bob Simpson played a good game
with the exception of a couple of
lapses, but Burt Smith has got to
get rid of the idea that every play
is just another round of a personal
grudge fight with every member of
the other team. Burt spends so
much time looking for trouble that
he wastes much of his real ability
as a hockey player.
The goalie situation is still the
weak spot in the, 1936-37 Michigan
hockey club. Bill Wood's perfor-
mance in the nets to date has been
decidedly spotty. Against Brantford,
only two of the invader's five goals
could be charged directly to him.
Both were long shots that beat him.
Wood Invincible
On the other hand, with the ex-
ception of one costly slip, Wood was
invincible in the final period. He
robbed Brantford forwards when
they were in the clear and dove all
over the ice to make some fine saves.
The thing that Lowrey hopes for
most is that Wood will steady down
and play the kind of hockey he is
capable of when he is hot.
Western Ontario brings one of the
best intercollegiate hockey teams in
Canada here tonight for the third
puck clash of a season that has been
marked to date by the stiffest com-
petition a Wolverine hockey club has
ever been asked to face. After to-
night Michigan will have played
against three teams from the three

fastest leagues in this part of the
country-all with less than two weeks
act'ualpractice and all before the reg-
ular season has started in other years.
The invaders feature a flashy, fast
skating, smart sextet that knows how
to set up and execute scoring plays
with the greatest of dispatch.
MONTREAL, Dec. 7.-QP)-The
Montreal Maroons of the National
Hockey League signed Max Kamin-
sky, high-scoring Boston Bruins for-
ward, today. Kaminsky, on the Bos-
ton suspension list for refusing to
come to terms, will replace Jerry
Shannon injured in Toronto.

for the first Irish touchdown i'n last Saturday's renew al of the intersectional series at Los Angeles.. Although
outgained in yards, 406 to 53, the Trojans capitalized on a 75-yard combination run and lateral pass and a 98-

Showing the speed and ball handling
ability that Cappon expected, Bill
Barclay collected six points and;
showed that he is ready to take over
a starting position if anyone in the
back line slips.
Manny Slavin, Dick Long, Leo
Beebe, Dick Joslin, Ferris Jennings,
and the other substitutes all did well,'
never giving the Hurons a chance to
get going.
Michigan's superior height had
Coach Elton Rynerson's team beaten
before it too the floor. It was im-
possible for the visitors to get their
hands on the ball long enough to
score and the three field goals that
they did manage to coax through the
netting were from far out on the
Engle Does Well
Ed Engle, six feet two inch center'
from St. Thomas High of Ann Arbor,
hit two of the longs and played a good
game for the Hurons on defense. The
other Ann Arbor boy, Lou Wenger,
did the bestrhercould against Jake
Townsend who seemed to ignore the
whole Ypsi team as he went about his
business of shooting pass after pass
to his teammates.
On defense the Wolverines stopped
what little the over-cautious Michi-
gan Normal five had to offer after a
slightly unsteady start in which the
Hurons started a couple of screen
plays that failed to materialize in
points simply because they couldn't
hit the basket. After the first few
minutes, however. the Varsity settled
down and kept Normal's team from
even starting any plays.
The assist column of the box score
tells the story pretty well.' Town-
send made six which resulted in
points, Smick picked up three, Gee
two, Patanelli and Joslin one apiece.
The assists, then, accounted for 26
points. The other 30 came from tip-
in shots, longs or dribble .shots on
fast breaks.
Foul Shots Good
The Michigan team was definitely
"on" at the foul line hitting seven
out of ten while Ypsi also had good
night with six out of ten.
The Field House scoring record
which the Wolverines broke was
established three years ago by one of
Purdue's championship fives when it
ran up 52 points in 1934, scoring al-
most at will against a weak Michigan
team. Last .year the Varsity came
within an ace of tying that record
when it piled up 51 points against

Gophers Rated
Country's Top
By Dickinson
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Dec. 7.-WP)-
Minnesota's mighty eleven was
ranked today as the nation's most
powerful college football team by
Prof. Frank G. Dickinson of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, originator of the
rating system bearing his name.
Professor Dickinson explained that
Minnesota's intersectional triumphs
over Washington, Pitt's Rose Bowl
foe, and Nebraska were more than
sufficient to offset the defeat by

a finger bowl-remain, and actually
they are a part of 1937 history. A
rehash of the season's bright spots
seem in order.
A glance at the records reveal
:Atre Dame as the "'36 Enigma
Eleven." It was easier to spell the
names on the Irish roster than to
figure them out. After starting out
like they meant to sweep back to a
place among ,he nation's front run-
ners, Layden's men encountered'
Pittsburgh, which barely squeezed by
Ohio State, 6-0, and lost to Duquesne,
7-0, and the Panthers annihilated
the Irish, 26-0.
B o u i1 c i n g back, Notre Dame
smeared the Buckeyes, 7 to 2. Then,
tavored to sink the Navy, they found
themselves torpedoed by Bill In-
gram's perfect placement, 3-0. Still
duping the poor fish who like to
wager a pair of bucks on Saturday's
South Bend then crossed experts
again by marching over the Army,
20-6, which in turn almost did what
Notre Dame couldn't, namely, sink
the Midshipmen. Only a last-min-
ute break gave the Middies a 7-0 win.
Continuing their crazy behavior,
the Irish then punctured Northwest-
ern's dream of national honors, 26 to
6 and wound up the dizzy autumn be-
ing held to a 13-13 tie by a Southern
California eleven that was only me-
diocre in its own circuit.

Baker, hard-hitting Norwalk, Conn.,
lightweight, abruptly ended the
comeback campaign of Kid Choco-
late, former featherweight and junior
lightweight champion, tonight by de-

ten-round bout before a sellout crowd

weighed 1291/.
The Cuban Bon Bon looked like
the old Chocolate only in flashes. He
tired easily, he was comparatively
easy to hit and his punches lacked)
the old time steam.
Baker easily won six of the ten
rounds on the Associated Press score

but one was a gift, the result of a
