Lowery Pleased With Showing O oph Puclk


To seldom look and often see
Is corking good philosophy;
But often look and seldom see
Harms the vision pal-pa-bly.-

WE TAKE A FEW DAYS rest from
vending to broaden our perspec-
tive-and what happens? First, the1
Daily is deluged with letters corn-
menting upon the general improve-
ment of the sports page. Second, theE
sports desk becomes littered with1
Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Wom-
an's Home Companion (not an advt.),1
and until we spotted the Illustrated
Football Annual hidden beneath
them, we had begun to suspect that a
switch with the women's department
had probably been arranged in our
absence. Then, while standing idly
by munching a pencil and contem-
plating the sports degeneration, in
traipse two cubs doing a strictly or-
iginal interpretation of the Big Ap-
ple, no travesty intended.
This, we decided, had to stop.
So out we hurried to buy Esquire,
Capt. Billy's Whiz Bang and two
blood-and-thunder pulps which
ought to revive the waning vir-
ility in the sports dept. And
we're resuming occupancy of thisj
space because our readers can't
intimidate us... Or can't they??

of the building Ray Fisher, Patience

sophomore pitcher, instructing with
illustrations. On the glistening hard-
wood Cappy Cappon; with Bennie
Oosterbaan assisting, directs his drib-

uous drills. And above the locker
rooms, on the "Fieldhouse sun,

Sophomores showed Coach Eddie
Lowrey Saturday night where a
goodly bulk of his strength for the
coming season's hockey campaign
will lie.
In winning the first game of the
winter schedule from the University
of Western Ontario over the week-
end by a shutout score of 3-0, Michi-
gan uncovered very promising ma-
terial in the form of three sopho-
mores playing their first college ice
Sophs Brilliant
The most outstanding player of the
game from the defensive angle was
the goalie, Spike James. By his con-
tinal saves he kept the Wolverine
'team out of plenty of hot water
throughout the game and the way he
handled himself in several exceeding-
ly uncomfortable moments would
have given any coach a pleasant
glowing feeling.
Coming in for his share of the
plaudits was Smack Allen, playing
not only his first Varsity game but
playing for the first time at the cen-
ter position and handling that well.
Allen, who has had quite a bit of fast
hockey experience gained it, how-
ever, as a defenseman. The vacancy
caused by the graduation of Vic
Heyliger in the forward line prompt-
ed Coach Lowrey to make the shift.
Doran Tallies First i
The third soph who performed
creditably in the opener is the sec-
ond line center, small Evie Doran.
Somewhat hindered in his speed by
the sloppy ice, Evie, however, suc-
ceeded in getting past the Ontario
)defensive for several close shots at
the goal and in the first period opened
the scoring on a pass from Les Hill-
berg, his wing.
Although the work of the sopho-
mores somewhat diminished the spot-
light on the four seniors of the squad
it's almost unnecessary to say that
Gib James' performance at left wing
forecasts another stellar season at
that position and Johnny Fabello
again is the passer that he was last
year. The defensemen Capt. Bob
Simpson and Burt Smith bumped
and blocked the opponents in a man-
ner relative to last year's.

enstein the timing and Walt the
stamina. After 59 minutes and 10
seconds of running, during which
he traversed the Field House
oval 80 times, Walt's delicious
comment was: "Gawd, but it was
monotonous!!!" . .
On Jan. 8, Michigan opens the
Conference cage campaign here
against Illinois, and local fans will
probably witness the season's classiest
ball-handling exhibition with "Wiz-
ard" Jake Townsend pitted against
Illini's "Flying Frenchman," Capt.
Louie Boudreau . . . Of Boudreau, a
press release says: " . . whose re-
markable ball-handling and floor
play promise to revolutionize the style
of the whole state where the boys in
the backyards try to imitate his
stunts ...
