MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 12.-(P)-A
scrappy little hockey team from Ann
Arbor went down before Minnesota
2-1 today with every goal paying
off on a penalty that left the teams
shorthanded.
Opening the campaign for the Big1

Wolverines turned on the pressure,
"Smack" Allen finally snaring thej
nuck from a scrimmage and drilled
it past Petrich for a clean goal.
Less than two minutes later, with I
Mariucci back in the game and Burt
Smith off the ice for Michigan, Ran-
dall and Wallace broke down the iceI
with only Captain Bob Simpson to 1
stop them. Wallace passed to Ran-
dall who jockeyed Goalie Spike James
out of position to tie the score. I
The winring tally hame midway in
the final period when Allen was in the
penalty box for the second time. An-
derson took a rebound and shoved itl
to Wallace for the goal. '
The game developed into one of the1
speediest collegiate hockey games
seen here in recent years, and except}
for a brief skirmish in the second
period, was exceptionally clean.

Riggs Elected
A.S.C.E.Head
n Landslide
Defeats A TVA-Sponsored
Candidate In Contest For
Its National President
Controversy Arises
Over Coulee Dam
Prof.-Emeritus Henry E. Riggs of
the engineering college was named
president of the American Society of
Civil Engineers yesterday, defeating
David C. Coyle, a member of Presi-
dent Roosevelt's engineering Board of
Review by a five to one margin in the
nationwide election.
Professor Riggs' nomination by the
society, a move generally considered
tantamount to election was opposed
by Coyle, the spokesman for a group
of engineers in the Tennessee Valley
Authority. Nominated by petition,
Coyle was catapulted into the election,
it is believed, as a result of a paper
which Professor Riggs read at the
Boston meeting of the Society last
fall.
In it Professor Riggs went on rec-
ord condemning the construction of
the Grand Coulee Dam which he said
was a magnificent engineering proj-
ect but economically unsound. He
made no mention of the Tennessee
Valley project.
Excess Power Produced
The power houses being construct-
ed on the Columbia River, Professor
Riggs pointed out, will produce more
power than the entire output of power
plants in either the state of Illinois or
Pennsylvania. "Washington. Oregon
and Utah, the states tapped by the
new development, have sufficient
power at present to satisfy their
needs."
In the meantime, Professor Riggs
continued, the project will cost the
nation $450,000,000 initial expenses
and 16-20 millions in carrying charges
per year.
Contacted ° yesterday, Professor
Riggs declared that such reasoning
had no application to the Tennessee
Valley which he said was an entirely
different project. embracing soil ero-
sion control and navigation control
as well as power. The misunder-
standing which led to Coyle's nomi-
nation probably arose, he said, from
garbled reports which newspapers
carried of the proceedings at the Bos-
ton convention.
TVA Is Good Engineering
Although personally not in agree-
ment with the assumptions behind
TVA, Professor Riggs emphasized that
the men in charge are performing
great feats of engineering and ex-
pressed his belief that if they remain,
the project may succeed. "It doesn't
seem possible to me," he said, "that a
corporation which has as directors
five or six hundred congressmen in
Washington can be very efficient."
The newly elected officers will take
office a week from today at the an-
nual meeting in New York City.
