A Real Rivalry...
THE CURRENT issue of "News-
week" magazine offers an unus-
ually timely piece on college hockey
with . special attention afforded to
that arch rivalry of the ice-Michi-
gan versus Minnesota.
This week finds the Gopher and
Wolverine sextets meeting on Thurs-
day and Saturday nights at the Coli-
seum. Behind the gamesis a tradi-
tion of intense competition that has
made the meeting one of the most fa-
vored events on the sports program.

"Last season's tie for supre-r
macy between Michigan and1
Minnesota is a typical result of1
Western Conference competition.'
The great disparity in size be-
tween the Minneapolis and Ann
Arbor rinks gives the home team
a great advantage. Then, too,
rivalry is so bitter that most ref-
erees are forced to favor the local
sextet slightly. For these two rea-
sons Michigan usually wins in
Ann Arbor, and Minnesota sweeps
the Minneapolis games, resulting
in a Big Ten draw.
"Feeling runs high in nearly
all these Wolverine-Gopher con-
tests;- one notable fight in Ann
Arbor some seven years ago found
spectators, coaches, managers,
and even the highly partisan
gentlemen' of the press trading
fisticuffs. At the height of this
shambles, two rival press serv-
Ices cooperated-the Associated
Press representative reached out
of the ice-side press box, grabbed
a Minnesota player, and held him
while the United Press slugged
him. During these stirring mom-
ents the hockey expert of The
Michigan Daily, campus newspa-
per, danced helplessly about on
the second row seats and shouted
'Kill him!' 'Kill him!' as a result
of this affray and others, Field-
ing 'H. Yost (Hurry-Up) Tost,
Michigan's director of athletics,
issued an extremely unpopular
edict: no fighting or no hockey.
It was grudgingly observed."
DESPITE this seven year old warn-
ing, however, Michigan-Minne-
sota hockey games have been notably
marked by the bitterest kind of riv-
As a matter of policy this depart-
ment wishes to state and advise as
I Would advise the local A and
UP correspondents to enlist aid
before tackling Mr. Mariucci. A
combination, perhaps, of the
aforementioned two; the Free
Press, the Chicago Daily News,
the Ann Arbor News, The Wind-
sor Star, the Detroit Times, The
London Times, and the Berliner
Zeitungen could handle the job.
The Michigan Daily's hockey
"expert" will be glad, as always,
to participate to the full extent
of his vocal capabilities from row
two. A stickler for tradition and
convention, he will nevertheless
mix up his "Kill 'Ims" with a few
choice morsels of unprintable

JAMES W. SKINNER of Ann Arbor,
, a member of the high school all-
American swimming squad, who now
attends Exter Academy set a new
world and Aierican record in the 100
yard breast-stroke Saturday in the
Payne Whitney Pool at New Haven.
His time for the distance, 1:02.1,
smashed Johnny Higgins' mark of
March 22, 1935. Swimming for Provi-
dence Central High School, Higgins
stroked the distance in 1:03.8 in a
20 yard pool. The Payne Whitney
pool is 25 yards in length.
Jack Kasley holds the record in
short course pools, churning 100 yards
in 1:02.7 at Indianapolis on Feb. 15,
According to swimming coach Matt
Mann, Skinner will enroll at Michi-
gan "unless one of those eastern
schools snatches him away."

With their 4 to 0 victory over Illi-
nois last Saturday evening a thing of
the past, Coach Eddie Lowrey and his
Wolverine sextet went through a hard
90 minute practice session last night
in preparation for their two game
stand this week against the Gophers
of Minnesota.

The second half had the crowd of
4,100 roaring all the way. With Har-
mon and Charley Pink leading the
Wolverines against Smith and for-
ward Dave Dupee the lead see-sawed
back and forth. witli neither team
pulling ahead more than three points
at any time.
Pink tied the score as he dribbled
half the length of the floor to put in
a left-handed shot before being
hurled against the end of the court by
Gallagher's foul. Fouls grew more
frequent as the battle waxed hot.
Dan Smick and Badger Johnny Gal-
lagher were banished with four per-
sonals before the total of 26 for the
night was complete.
Dobson Provides Spark
Reserve Russ Dobson replaced
Smick and served as a temporary shot
in the arm for the Wolverines by scor-
ing twice, the first on a sensational
overhead hook shot and the second
on a slick corner shot. The 29-26
lead gained thereby was soon evap-
orated however as Dupee scored two
goals and Smith a goal and free
throw. It went to 32 all, then 34, 36,
and finally 28 but there the bubble
burst and Wisconsin moved out to
their final 42-39 advantage. They
stalled throughout the final minute. ,
Although they had a. spghtly bet-
ter shot percentage last night than
they did against Minnesota Satur-
day, Oosterbaan's boys were still de-
cidedly off in their sharpshooting.
They sunk 12 out of 68 shots as
against 7 out of 61 Saturday. The
Badgers made 17 out of 53 after
dropping only 16 out of 240 in their
first three Big Ten games.
'I thought both teams played ,a
good game," Wisconsin's Coach Har-
old Foster remarked after the game.
"Michigan should beat Iowa and I
think they have a better offense than
has Chicago."
