relief during the entire 60 minutes of
Reports from the Ontario me-
tropolis indicate that the Varsity
needs a lot of room to hit the peak
form which has given them an av-

this season. With this in mind Coach
Eddie Lowrey will have his Wolver-
ines glued to the invaders all evening.
Teams' Records Even
On their records both teams stand
fairly even. Michigan has won 11
out of 16 games, while Toronto has
scored eight victories in 12 starts. The
Canadians schedule has pitted them
against the best of the east, how-
ever, and two of their defeats came
at the hands of the well nigh in-

and all the question of hockey su-

able to claim that western hockey is

wide open brand of hockey made
possible by a world of offensive pow-

Coach Ace Bailey plans to start his
second line against the short handed

third for the Varsity.
Get Slam In Broadjump
The second slam of the meet came
in the final event, the broad jump.
Smith jumped 23 feet three inches
for first honors, with Stoller and
Bill Watson ending up in a tie for
second less than two inches back.
Watson and Jim Kingsley, both
sophomores, remained undefeated in
their favorite events. The former
took the shot put easily with a heave
of 48 feet 111h2 inches, and Kingsley
went up 13 feet to win the pole vault
from Bill Morgan of Michigan. Dave
Hunn, veteran Varsity vaulter, was
kept out of the event by Coach
Charlie Hoyt to allow the former's
injured leg some rest before the
Conference championships to be held
next week-end in Chicago.
Win Relay Easily
Michigan's quartet of Harvey
Clarke, Brelsford, Captain Osgood
and Birleson had little trouble in
capturing the mile relay, by approx-
imately 100 yards, defeating a Pitt
team that had trouble at the ex-
change. Woodruff did not run in
Harold Tost put on a terrific sprint
in the two-mile run to beat Mich-
igan's Neree Alix, the pace-setter for
most of the race, by 25 yards.
