What A Finish!
Michigan looked good and bad. I.
liked the fortitude of 160 pound Stod-
den as he stuck out his chin and be-
gan chewing "away with 195 pounda
Mariucci. I liked the way Les Hill-
berg got into the spirit of the evening
and dumped the Eveleth star into the
boards. There were times when Evy
Doran, Al Chadwick and George
,Cooke showed an admirable single-
ness of purpose. For Spike James I
have only unreserved praise. His job
as human target number wie is as
thankless as it was beautifully ex-
Back to the Armstrong-Ga-
lento example. My shekels would
be' right on Tony's flattened
beezer, but I wouldn't miss the
scrap under any circumstances.
You see, Henry is the type of lad
who abandons discretion inside of
the ropes, and I imagine he could
give the Joisey City guziler some
mighty uncomfortable moments.
I know he wouldn't pull any
punches whether defeat was star-
ing him in the face or not.
This may sound like a lot of una-
dulterated hokum to most of you, but
I trust that the representatives of
Mr. Lowrey get what I'm driving at.
No one ever laughed at a loser that
went down fighting.
Squad Is Reduced To 15;
First Line Impresses
"That freshman hockey line is bet-
ter than the varsity second line right
now," Coach Eddie, Lowrey exclaimed
after watching the frosh work out for
25 minutes last night against those
boys who are already wearing the
maize and blue colors.
The yearling line which rated such'
a high compliment is composed of
Dick Taylor, right wing; Paul (Big
Boy) Goldsmith, center; and bespec-
tacled Cliff Dance, left wing. Prior
to last night this aggregation had
worked out as a unit for the first
time at Wednesday's practice and,
that was for only 10 minutes. AllI
told it only took these future Michi-,
gan pucksters 35 minutes to estab-
lish themselves as one of the most[
promising lines ever to report to!
After trimming the tryouts down
to 15 last night, Coach Lowrey named
three more players, in addition to
this line which is the answer to a
coach's prayer, who have clinched
berths on the 1939 freshman squad:
Fitch Tillotson, an Ann Arbor boy,
left wing; Warren King, right de-
fense; and Bob Collins, left defense.
In an hours scrimmage last night

in three goals, one with the aid of

Ride 12,000. Miles
In First Semester
Michigan students and followers
might well ask "Where, oh where, are
our wandering boys tonight?", for the
Wolverine athletes figure to roam
some 12,000 miles ere the curtain rings
down on the first semester. .
The football team started the boys}
rolling by tacking up 3500 miles, as
they traveled to Yale, Minnesota, and
Ohio State. The basketball team
quickly overtook the gridders by me-'
andering 3000 miles during Christ-
mas vacation and over 500 since then.
With Iowa and the Buckeyes yet to
be met, the cagers will run their total
to about 5000 miles.
Coach Eddie Lowrey's pucksters
turned in 6,000,000 feet in riding to
wallop Western Reserve and Illinois,
and will number another 300 miles as
they venture forth to do battle with
Western Ontario. The 1500 miles add-
ed in dueling Penn State and the Nev
York A.C. drives the wrestlers' stock
of miles up to more than 2000, the
other 500 or more multiples of 5280,
feet coining during the Ceitial Q.A.U.
meet in Chicago.

BRUSSELS, Jan. 20.- (1P) -The
Belgian ice hockey team Etoile Du
Nord defeated a selected United
States squad 6 to 5 tonight with a
third period scoring splurge that
nosed out the American team which
is on its way to Switzerland for the
World Championships. The United
States squad, sponsored by the Ama-
teur Athletic Union, also lost last
night at Amsterdam.

letic Club's strong aggregation in

The Wolverines will be up against
a club which won all of its dual meets
last year but one, and is also unde-
feated so far this year with triumphs
over Lehigh, Army and the West Side
Y.M.C.A. in New York.
Tom Weidig, promising sophomore,
121 pounder on Coach Cliff Keen's
squad who has split his two matches
so far this year, has perhaps the big-
gest hurdle to clear tonight, for he
will face "Tiny" Peterson, seasoned
National A.A.U. champ, in the open-
ing match of the evening.
Merieka. Is Favorite
Either Andy Sawyer or Carl "Bats"
Mosser will be called upon to meet
Jack Collins, Junior Metropolitan
champ, in the 128-pound battle, while
Jim Mericka will be the favorite in his,
136-pound fracas with Warren bund.
The 145-pound match will bring to-I
gether Capt. HaroldNichols of the
Wolverines and Alex Hendry, Senior
Metropolitan champ, and at 155, Rex1
Lardner, will wrestle Frank Gonzaliz,
ex-Lehigh star and former Eastern

Michigan's Frank Morgan will
strive to enter the win column tonight
against Tony Kolensky, N.Y.A.C.'s

165-pound match, while at 175
pounds, Don Nichols will be out for
his third straight win of the season
when he tangles with Charlie Powers.
In the heavyweight encounter For-
rest "Butch" Jordan will meet the
giant, 220-pound Charlie Toll, who
once played plenty of tackle for
Princeton but what is more important
here, was runner-up in the heavy-
weight competition at the National
A.A.U. meet last year. Both men will
be risking undefeated records, which
should make this battle the hardest
fought of the meet.
Michigan's big job is to stop Capt.

couldn't do it. Ben scored 20 points
at Minneapolis and. had the high-
riding Gophers thoroughly scared be-
fore they finally pulled out a victory.
This fast and clever six-footer made
135 points in the 12 Conference games
last year tying the mark of Michi-
gan's John Townsend. In Iowa's first
10 games this season,. Stephens has
surpassed that total by one, and
when he gets hot there is no stopping
him. He scored 23 points in one game
last year. He'll be Capt. Leo Beebe's
Pairing with Stephens at the other
forward spot will be Angelo Anapol,
a tall, graceful sophomore who has
the potential ability but has shown
little thus far this season.
Plett Is. Center
At center, the position first adver-
tised as the team's weak link, cavorts
Charlie Plett who was a reserve last
year. His height of six feet, one-half
inch may not be enough to get the
jumps against Danny Smick who tow-
ers six four, but he has been scoring
better than was expected.
The two guards, Erwin Prasse, (all-
Conference end) and Howard Irvine
have been a tower of strength on the
defense. They held Purdue's attack
well under control and Chicago coulld
get only 19 points. That's a five-
year low for Iowa's opponents. Prasse,
a junior is six two and sophomore
Irvine is five eleven.
Rae Still Out
For the second consecutive game,
the Wolverines will be without the
services of center Jim Rae who is
home trying to rest his back into
shape. Smick will. start at center
and once again it may be up to soph-
omore Tom Harmon to spark the
Michigan attack. Although his team
play may not be up to A-1standards,
Harmon has the speed and drive nec-
essary to lead an offense. His shoot-
ing has been the best on the team
during this two-weak slump.
Charley Pink, who shows signs of
throwing off the contagious inac-
curacy ailment, will go at the other
forward and Eddie Thomas and Capt.
Beebe will be at the guard posts.

Lead In Big Ten
Although the Big Ten basketbal
campaign is hardly three weeks old
the scoring race has already nar-
rowed down to a three way affair.
Ben Stephens, Iowa's sensationa'
forward whom the Wolverines will at-
tempt to halt tomorrow night, lead
the pack at present with 54 points in
four games, a lead of only two or
Pick Dehner, Illinois pivot star. Ir
third place is Jimmy Hull of Ohi
with 42 points, but the Buckeye cap
tain must be considered a definit
threat for the scoring title since h
has participated in only three games
Fourth and fifth are Bill Hapac o.
Illinois and Johnny Kundla of Minne-
sota with 41 and 40 respectively. A
notable absentee among the leaders is
Ernie Andres, Indiana's sharpshoot-
ing guard who ranked second in the
Conference last season, but now is
down to a deadlock for tenth place
with 27 points.
No Michigan men are rated among
the first ten, Eddie Thomas in six-
teenth place with 25 points leading
