Redskins Defeat Bears 28 To 21

IBrantford Tilt
Reveals Sextet
On Up-Swing
[inproved Varsity Meets
McMaster University Six
Here. Tomorrow
In beating Brantford A.C. Saturday
night by a 2-1 score the Michigan
hockey team demonstrated beyond
any doubt that it's on the upswing.
All the faults that were so apparent
in the two earlier games this season
were almost entirely eliminated in
. McMaster University of Hamilton,
Ontario, when it comes here tomor-
row night to meet the Wolverines, will
find an awaiting team which is sure
to be up to or above the level it set
against Brantford. If the former
Dominion intermediate intercollegiate
champions hope to win they will have
to be plenty good.
Balance, Timing Corrected
The off-balance and off-timing
which the Wolverines so glaringly
displayed against London A.C. two
weeks ago were corrected so well that
the front line of Gib James, Smack
Allen, and Johnny Fabello found no
trouble in passing near and around
the goal mouth and in working the
puck in for shots. Only the saves of
the Leaf's goalie kept more points
from being scored against the vis-
itors. The Brantford defense was
consistently pulled out of position and
offered very little resistance to the
fine team-play of the clicking Mich-,
igan forward line.
Back-Checking Improved
Another error which was corrected
was backchecking by the forwards.
Captain Bob Simpson and Bucko
Smith found their work much easier
because of the way the wings and
center came back up the ice to take
over their men.
The work of Goalie Spike James
needs no comment.
On only one occasion did Michigan
find it necessary to use a power play,
something which accounted a great
deal for their only defeat by London.
However, the play did not function as
well as it might have and it's likely
that Coach Eddie Lowrey will con-
tinue to work the boys on this detail
in today's light drill.

e Savilla, Ochs
Are Keen's Chief
Wrestling Puzzles

It is not the lack of material that is
worrying Coach Cliff Keen these days
as he attempts to whip his Varsity
wrestling team into shape, but how
to make best use of the material he
has on hand.
Although there are a host of letter-
men back, the line-up is still far from
set. Especially in the heavier divi-
sions is Keen having trouble selecting
the best men.
One man who seems reasonably
assured of a spot in the starting line-
up. is Don Nichols, sophomore from
Cresco, Iowa, and brother of the
veteran 145 pounder, Harold. How-
ever Keen is not sure whether to use'
Don at his natural, weight, 175 pounds,
or advance him to the heavyweight
class to take the place of "Butch"
Jordan, who has withdrawn from
The development of two men on the
squad, who at the present, can be'
rated as nothing but question marks,
may help Keen decide what to do with
One of these is Joe Savilla, the'
rangy sophomore tackle, from West
Virginia, who although he has never
wrestled before in his life, is showing
exceptional promise for a beginner.
Six foot, three inches tall and weigh-
ing about 195 pounds, he possesses
what Keen terms an ideal build for
wrestling. Although he is probably
too inexperienced at present, Savilla
gives every indication that he will
be a valuable man later on.
The other so-called question mark
on the squad, is Lilburn Ochs. His
case is almost exactly opposite to that
of Savilla. Coming here with a fine
high school and amateur reputation
two years ago, Ochs proved to be one
of the outstanding 175-pound fresh-
man prospects to compete here. How-
ever last year as a sophomore, he
was handicapped by numerous in-
juries, and his performance was a big
Having just completed a strenuous
Junior Varsity football campaign,
Ochs is not in the best wrestling trim'


The back line men didn't approach
their real form. Herm Fishman played
erraticaly. Ed Thomas missed three
easy set-up shots, and Leo Beebe was
too busy watching dangerous George
Falkowski, State ace, to add much to
the team's attack.
All these factors figure promin-
ently in the Varsity's poor showing.
as yet, but showed during the grid
schedule that he is fully recovered
from last year's injuries. If he re-
gains his freshman form, Nichols
could be moved to the heavyweight
class without noticeably weakening
the 175-pound division.

Baugh Clinches It
The Bears then drove 78 yards to
go in front again, Masterson passing
three yards to Manske for a touch-
down. Seconds later, on the first
play after the kickoff, Baugh lined
another pass to Millner who ran 50
yards to score. In the final seconds
of the third period, after his short
passes had the Bears dizzy, Baugh
faded back and passed 20 yards to
Ed Justice, reserve Washington back,
who ran 15 yards for the touchdown
that gave the Redskins victory and a
smashing climax to a late season
drive to the League's eastern division
