as the pressure mounted and Michi-
gan was through for the evening.
Even though Dehner played the best
game he ever has against a Michi-
gan team, he was pressed for scor-
ing honors by a battling Tom Harmon
who would just as sooni play football
and does at times. The Michigan
sophomore never hesitated to try a
long shot and as usual he got away
with it by dint of the fact that he can
sink them. His four "long Tom's"
plus a sprinkling of foul shots and
two shorts not only gave him 15 points
for the evening but kept Michigan in
the ball game all the way.
Harmon started it by swishing
through two longs within the first two
minutes of play to set up a lead which
held more than halfway through the
period as Charley Pink and Eddie
Thomas added field goals for the good
of the cause. The lead shifted three
times as the half drew to a close. A
tip-in by Dehner gave Illinois their
first lead 11 to 10 after 13 minutes of
play. Harmon's dog shot and a long
by Pink again brought the margin
back to the Wolverines but after a
side shot by Wardley, Dehner made
a seemingly impossible whirling pivot
shot to end the half with his team
holding a 16-15 advantage.
Michigan Attack Stifled
From Pink's long to Michigan's first
field goal in the second half, a long
by Harmon, elapsed a time of 10 min-
utes in which the Illini defense smoth-
ered the Michigan attack completely.
Then came the belated uprising
which was squelched in the last three
minutes and 4,500 fans went home in
a sober frame of mind.
Early in the game, Michigan's cen-
ter Jim Rae did a beautiful job of
guarding Dehner, blocking several of
those push shots as they left his
hand. A couple of falls did that in-
jured back no good' however-al-
though Jim wouldn't admit it-and
the Illini star began to cut loose. But
the way he was shooting, he was not
to be stopped by anyone.
Both Teams Ragged
Although both teams looked ragged
and showed the effects of the exam
period lay-off, Illinois at times flashed
the form that has stamped them as
dangerous title contenders despite
injuries and the ineligibility of their
Capt. Tommy Nisbet. On the other
hand, Michigan's offense did little as
the front line couldn't click and long
shots were the chief weapon.
As for accuracy, Illinois sank 13
shots out of 45 while the Wolverines
made 11 out of 47.
Sidelights on the game: In the
locker room, Coach Doug Mills said
Michigan played a better game than
they did at Champaign in the sea-

This Long Shot Just Missed The Hoop

Sextets This Week
With only one casuality resulting
from the past examination periodI
Coach Eddie Lowry and his Odiminish-j
ing-in-numbers hockey team will
start the last leg of their current
season Wednesday night when they
meet the Woodstock Trojans on the
Colisieum ice.-
Although being able to drive past
opposing defense men on the ice,
Ev Doran failed to carry out the
same attack in the scholastic game.
As a result Coach Lowrey will be with-
out Doran's service for the rest of
the semester.
Team Plays TieI
Last Saturday night the Wolver-
ines traveled to London, Ontario
where they played the Western On-
tario hockey club. Going into an over-
time period neither team was able
to produce a winning goal, the final
score being a 3 to 3 tie.
In the overtime period George
Cooke wfas able to score, but the point
was disallowed by Referee Reynolds
as a Michigan man crossed the
crease in front of Ontario's net at
the time of the shot.
Switches Are Planned
With the loss of Doran on the
first forward wall, Coach Lowrey will
move Captain Les Hillberg up to the
( wing position and switch Al Chad-
wick into the center post. Cooke as]
usual will take over the other wing.I
On Saturday might the Wolverines.
will face a team, the Waterloo Hoc-1

All eyes are on the ball as Tom Harmon, Wolverine high scorer, tries
to connect with a long shot in the closing minutes of the game in a vain
attempt to catch up with the Illini. The players, from left to right are:
Pink (20) of Michigan; Dehner, Drish, Wardley and Hapac, of Illinois;
and Captain Beebe (1) and Smick (4) of Michigan.

ine captain. Bob Hook and Tom
Lawton will complete the Michigan
cast in this event.
By putting Ralph Schwarzkopf and
sophomore Karl Wisner in the two-
mile Coach Hoyt appears to have
enough strength in that event to
withstand the challenge of the Mich-
igan State duo of Dick "Small" Frey
and Bill Mansfield. Schwarzkopf,
last year's winner, ran a 9:08.5 two-
mile less than two weeks ago at the
Millrose games.
Davidson Tries To Repeat
Miler Harold Davidson will also be
seeking a repeat victory and will be
backed up by veteran Brad Heyl and
sophomores Jack Dobson and Ed
Barrett. Spartan Ed Van Auken is
the best bet to give Davidson and his
confreres a run for their money.
The probable loss of Jester leaves
Dye Hogan as the only seasoned half-
miler to match strides with State's
Roy Fehr, who won the event against
Notre Dame with a 1:57.4 effort, but
Hogan will be backed up by sopho-
mores Jack Leutritz, Howie Egert,
and Art Cline, and converted quarter-
rgiler Harvey Clarke.
Scrambled Quarters
The quarter-mile will show a
scrambled Michigan lineup as Phil
Balyeat and Waldo Abbott represent
Michigan while Warren Breidenbach,
Ross Faulkner, and Doug Hayes join
Balyeat in the one-mile relay. Bal-
yeat, a former Michigan State stu-
dent, never competed while at East
Lansing but will seek to show Coach
Ralph Young of the Spartans some
of the stuff that made him the Na-

son's opener. "In my opinion Bennie
has done an excellent job with the
material he has," he said. "They
showed more offensive tricks tonight
than any team we have played. That
Harmon may have a few things to
learn but he is a great competitor,"
he added . . Mills further stated
that his team would have gone
through this semester undefeated had
it not been for sickness and Nisbet's
absence . . . Dehner dressed slowly.
"Boy, I'm tired," he sighed. Then-
"Betcha we beat Purdue by 10 points
next time we play 'em."
