Calvert is assured at starting in the
other back spot.'
By virtue of their strong, experi-
enced squad, McMaster will be heavy
favorites to take the opening contest
from the Wolverines. Michigan's hope
for a victory rests son the ability of
"Spike" James to stop opposing shots
and Cooke's speed in skating around
McMaster's defense men.
McAdam Leads Invaders
Leading the visiting team will be
Ken McAdam, the school's number
one athlete and a defense man. His
partner at the other defense post will
be Herb Leal. Fred "Boxges" Martin
-will use his six foot frame to stop
Wolverine's shots.
Ross Martin, Bob Burt, and Ver-
dun Wendorf will hold down the cen-
ter and wing positions on Coach Ossie
Stewart's Maroon squad.
The Maroons will have equally skill-
ful, although inexperienced men to
call upon for reserves while Coach
Lowrey must rely on sophomores Jim
Tobin and Gil Samuelson at the
wings, and Capt. Les Hillberg as a re-
serve for Doran at center.
Eight Veterans Return'
When the McMaster team takes to
the ice for the warmup practice there
will be eight out of the twelve men,

men are newcomers while more than

the present football rules are here to
A vast majority of the nation's grid
mentors, canvassed by the Associat-
ed Press for their thoughts on the
subject, have come in with a flat
"leave the rules alone." It seems
safe to predict that there will not be
a single important change this year.
Eventually, perhaps, some genius
will figure out a workable substitute
for the maligned extra point. Right

Coach "Dutch" Meyer of Texas Chris-

the winner of a tie game on the
basis of yards gained.

of the Football Coaches Rules Com-
mittee, more or less voices the con-
sensus, when he says: 'There is more
satisfaction with the rules than ever
before in my experience. There is
only the usul agitation, about the
