MADISON, Wis., Jan. 16.-(Spe-
cial to The Daily)-After playing
sloppily for 28 minutes, the Michigan
basketball team came to life to down
an outclassed Wisconsin five, 43 to
31, tonight at Camp Randall Field
The Varsity led 16 to 12 at the
end of the half with free throws and
long shots giving the Wolverines their
margin as they saw the ball roll out
of the basket time after time on
their short shots. In the second pe-
riod, however, Michigan came to life
and started moving with the same
speed that defeated Northwestern, to
go past Wisconsin and win by a com-
fortable margin.
Approximately 4,500 spectators
saw the Wolverines take their sec-
ond conference victory.
Mitehell Leads Badgers
Lee Mitchell led the Badger attack
with 12 points as he hit four field
goals and as many free throws on a
fast breaking offense that found
Michigan flatfooted until near the
The whole game was rough with
the officials blowing a quick whistle
to catch Michigan for 20 personals,
an incredible number, while Wiscon-
sin got nipped 17 times. Neither
team could hit its free throws con-
sistently, however.
Jake Townsend led Michigan both
on offense and defense, collecting 11
points, nine of which he picked up
in the last'half of the second period.
Two Wolverines, Johnny Gee and
Matt Patanelli, left the game on per-
Gee Gets Jump
Gee took the opening tip and then
capitalized on his height advantage
to pivot around Bell, the Badger cen-
ter, twice in a row. Bell gave Wis-
consin its first score on a free throw
and Gee retaliated with a foul shot.
Fishman put Michigan ahead 7 to 1
with a long shot, but Fuller, Mitchell
and Weigandt suddenly came to life
and hit three consecutive baskets
to give Wisconsin the lead, 8 to 7.
Townsend tied up the score with a
free throw but the Badgers went
ahead again as Mitchell connected
again from far out on the floor. Then
the Varsity began to hit the basket
as Townsend followed in Barclay's
foul shot and then passed to Bar-
clay to goiahead. With less than a
minute to go Rooney picked up a
loose ball and went under.
Wolverines Get Hot
Once again the Wolverines warmed
up as Thomas, replacing Barclay,
dropped the ball through and Pat-
anelli hit at an angle from about the
center of the floor as the gun ended
the first half.
Both teams started slow in the sec-
ond half. Michigan still looked slow
and ineffective. Pat dropped another
ong as Wisconsin hit four free
throws to tie the score at 18. Then
Gee left the game on personals and
Danny Smick came in to score around7
Bell. Another period of quiet fol-
lowed and finally Michigan began
to move.
Ed Thomas, Townsend and Smick
found the basket, Mitchell continued,
to break fast down the floor but left
the floor with four personals as he
failed to stop Townsend.

Freshman Pucksters May Solve
Coach Lowrey's Goalie Problem

Bob Helmer, Eldon James
Appear As The Answer
To Chief Worries
If Coach Eddie Lowrey could scrap
the rule prohibiting freshmen from
Varsity competition, his goalie prob-
lem would almost cease bothering
him-almost, because trouble would
arise in choosing between the pair of
bona fido net minders on the yearling
The two goalies are Bob Helmer,
Calgary's hope, and Eldon (call him
"Spike") James, Gib's kid brother
from Ottawa. Both are as suspicious
of stray pucks as a pacifist is of fire-
Learns From Father
Helmer learned his hockey first
hand, his father being the former
coach of the New York Americans
and manager, at present, of a semi-
pro six in Calgary. Bob started tend-
ing goal in an amateur circuit at,
home which has produced such lead-;
ing puckmen as Sweeney Schriner,]
Americans' high scorer, and Tiny
Thompson, the Boston Bruins' tough
little barrier. Thompson it was, who
slipped. Bob several invaluable point-
ers on kicking the rubber disk out of
the nets.1

with assorted shots, and according to
reports, Young Helmer gave a praise-
worthy account of himself. Asked
which of the Wings was most clever,
he replied, "They were coming at me
so thick and fast I couldn't tell." He
has 150 pounds packed into his 5 feet
10 inch frame.
James Old Hand
Spike James has been frustrating
pucks ever since he turned thirteen.
The James family lived across the
street from the famous Kilrea hockey
clan, and the boys often gathered in;
their back yard for impromptu ses-
sions of light hockey. Frank Fin-
negan, now withktheyToronto Maple
Leafs, also lived nearby and occa-j
sionally joined the fun. From suchf
illustrious exponents of the ice art,
Spike picked up considerable knowl-
edge of the game. Bill Cowley, cen-
ter for the Boston Bruins, once
watched the lanky lad repulse those
back-yard attacks and persuaded him
to join up with a team in the junior
amateur league in Ottawa.
His supreme moment among the
amateurs came when he first played
against brother Gib, and Spike re-,
lates with pride how Gib failed to
slap the puck past him. In fact, the
sharp-eyed Varsity star couldn't dent
his brother's armor in three tilts.
