first by off-side penalties, but Cooke
kept getting the puck down for set-
ups which did not materialize. Michi-
gan's two defensemen, Hillberg and
Dalvert, proved that they were danger-
ousous by returning the puck all the
way to Goalie Reid's shins time after
time. Calvert passed at one point to
Hillberg and Les missed by centimet-
ers. Then Karges scored at 4:22.
I Up until the first 12 minutes, all
the action was forced to Michigan.
Then Michigan got her passing go-
ing, and Doran topped things off by
personally escorting the puck through
the whole Port Dover squad and
Goalie Reid's legs for Michigan's first
score at 13:08 on one of the most
beautiful solo dashes the Coliseum
has ever witnessed. Doran carried the
puck through again 40 seconds later
and the score was Michigan 2, Port
Dover 1.
Three In Six Minutes
From then on, the action got faster
with "Sitting Bull" Ross almost count-
ing on two long shots that Goalie
Reid stopped with his finger nails.
Spike James stopped 14 shots
while Reid kept out 8 for Port Dover.
The second period was slow start-
ing until Cooke took over. He got on
top of the goal, only to miss. Then
he got another pass from Doran and
pushed it in at 9:37. Then Cooke
varied things by thwarting Reid all
by himself at 11:49. He finished off
the scoring for the second period af-
ter another pass from Doran at 15:27.
In the meantime, Chadwick was stop-
ping all of the Sailors' attempts. His
stick seemed to draw the rubber disc
away from Port Dover's men just as
though it were a magnet. Hillberg
in the meantime was batting the
puck down out of mid-air just like
Simpson and Smith were wont to do
last year.
Opponents Score Last
In this second period, which ended
with the score Michigan, 5--Port
Dover 1, Spike James, for probably
the first time since he has been a
Wolverine, had the pleasure of se-c-
ing the opposing goalie have to stop
more shots than he was called to
face-15 to 13.
Port Dover tried to get the puck \
going again in the third period when
Stodden was chastized for tripping,
but Michigan was unwilling-instead,
Hillberg scored for Michigan at 5:42.
From then on, the play was lethargic.
Michigan had satisfied itself and
Coach Eddie Lowrey who probably
remembered the season is young and
his team is sparse. Port Dover endedf
the scoring when Hallam countered1
unassisted, in 9:31. Betts also re-f
ceived a penalty for tripping Ross.
For a while Spike James must havel
thought he was in the midst of the-
Sin-Japanese war when the whole
Port Dover squad with the exception
of Goalie Reid converged on him.
James, playing his usual brilliant
game, had to stop 12 shots while Reid
brushed off 8 while missing one.

Coach Charlie Hoyt is going to have
to dig down to the very depths of his
bag of tricks this year to come up
with any dashmen who will be able
to keep the sprinting department on

The Tolans and Stollers of past

Charlie doesn't feel that any of the
present crop might even be called
"good" on the basis of what he hasI
seen so far this fall.
Sprint Prospects 'Fair' I
"The way things look right now,"
the Wolverine mentor laments, "our
prospects in the sprints are just
fair." Conditions are such, Charlie
moans, that he will be forced to put
much more time on the sprints than
on any other single event.
Despite the rather gloomy outlook
it is fairly safe to assume that the
sprint corps will be as good and prob-
ably better than last year's team
boasted. Nobody graduated from the
Varsity and several of Ken Doherty's
frosh have moved into the ranks with!
pretty fair records. t
Norm Purucker, the Madcap grid-
der, the Culver twins and CaptainI
Bill Watson are the veterans to be
counted on. Purucker has not yet re-

This year when the squad reported
there appeared to be a lack of first
class defensemen. Although he had
never before played this position,
Hillberg nominated himself for the
job. to Coach Lowrey. In baseball,
for example, this would amount to
a pitcher switching to an infielder,
for there is a distinct difference be-
tween the styles employed by qe-
fensemen and wings.
But Les soon proved his versatility
in the first game against McMasters
University. Although his play during
the first period was only fair, he
suddenly hit his stride and displayed
a vicious brand of body-.checking. He
continued this fine playing in the
Western Ontario and Western Re-

he was much more confident of him-

plenty to tell.


Al Chadwick did his share last
night in helping Michigan's hock-
ey team add to its unbroken string
of victories this season when they
defeated the Port Dover Sailors,
6-2. Chadwick's goal gave his team
mates a lead which they never re-
linquished when he tallied forty
seconds after Ev Doran had knot-

prevailed upon golf ball manufac-
turers to turn out their product ac-
cording to definite specifications.
These specifications are intendedI
to prevent development of too lively

a duffer to belt 300-yard drives and
would enable tournament players to
make par ridiculous.
Announcement of the a groement
with the manufacturers, one for,
which the U.S.G.A. had been striving
for several years, was made at the
annual meeting by Archie M. Reid
of Hastings-On-Hudson, N.Y., who
has unanimously re-elected president
of the association.
Reid told the delegates that trial
of the new style stymie rule, which
permits lifting of the nearer ball
when it is within six inches of the
hole as well as within six inches of
the other ball, would be extended for
another year.
The delegates also app-oved a de-
