Squad

Lowrey, Puck Coach, Is Faced
With Task Of Replacing Stars

All's gloomy on the hockey front.
Michigan's chances of successfully
defending the Big Ten puck title
which they shared last year with the
pugnacious Gophers of Minnesota ap-
pear exceedingly small as a swift per-
usal of returning players and men
lost indicates that the latter far over-
shadows the former.
But Coach Eddie Lowrey will have
several veterans returning to furnish
the backbone of what will probably
be a very young team for the 1938-39
season. Heading the list is tall, sturdy,
Les Hillberg captain and center of
the first line this year. Flanking
Hillberg on one wing will probably;
be youthful Al Chadwick, the frail;
appearing Detroit skater who can
absorb amazing amounts of punish-,
ment for one his size. Chadwick willl
be playing in his second year of
varsity competition.l
Two Good Goalies
George Cooke, the speediest man on
the squad, and Evie Doran, hampered
by ineligibility and a broken hand
last season, are both expected to re-c
turn and add immeeasurably to the
scoring ability of the team-.
Coach Lowrey is best fortified in

the nets where Spike James, the re-
mainder of the famous James combi-
nation broken by the graduation of
his high scoring brother, Gib, is ex-
pected to return. And from the ranks
of last year's yearling squad will
come .Erwin Clahassey, a lad who
has given indications of giving the
veteran Spike quite a battle for the
right to bat the pucks away from the
Wolverine net.
Stars Grakuatae
However, Coach Lowrey is con-
fronted with the task of replacing
not only the aforementioned Mr.
James, but also ex-captain Bob Simp-
son, and Burt Smith last year's regular
and only defense combination, as well
as John Fabello, a speedy wing and
James' scoring mate on the front
line. The third member of outstand-
ing first line, Smack Allen, the burly,
hard-going red-head, who was the
outfit's leading scorer in his first sea-
son of play and chief play-maker, is
not expected to return to school.
Besides "classy Clahassey," the class
of '41, barring the ineligiblity bugaboo,
will provide several promising young-
sters whom Coach Lowrey expects
to develop into valuable additions to
the team. There is Jim Anderson, the
local lad who handles the puck with
the smoothness of a veteran, Jim
Tobin, another speedy forward, Jim
Lovett, Herb Kilner and Burt Stod-
den, all numeral winners. Charles
Ross, husky, hard-shooting puck-
chaser, Lawrence Calvert and Fred
Heddle are defensemen who have in-
herited the difficult task of replacing
Simpson-Smith combination which
so successfully guarded the rear line
of the Michigan team last season.
Practice for the heavy schedule of
the coming season, which is featured
as usual by the series with the Minne-
sota Gophers, the winner invariably
being conference champion, will get
underway as soon as the Coliseum is

Hike is A Success
As A Campaigner
If Ralph Heikkenin is half as suc-
cessful as a guard as he is as an elec-
tion campaigner then he is almost
a certainty for All-American honors.
During the summer "Hike" traveled
16,400 miles in the upper peninsula,
speaking Finnish in behalf of Harry
S. Toy, candidate for the guberna-
torial nomination on the Republican
ticket.
That the Michigan All-Conference
guard was a success was attested to
by the fact that the only three coun-
ties that Toy carried in the entire
state were those in which Hike elec-
tioneered.
