Sextet Faces
London A.C.
In First Test
Lowrey Not Satisfied As
Team Ends Preparation
For Game At Coliseum
The Michigan hockey team went
through its last practice session of
the week last night on the Coliseum
ice in preparation for the opening
game Saturday night here against
the London, Ontario, Athletic Club.
After a week of scrimmaging which
left much to be desired in the way
of good hockey the team was divided
into two squads which practiced
passing and checking at each end
of the ice.
Regulars Work Out
The first line of Paul Goldsmith,
Bert Stodden and Jim Lovett worked
against defensemen Larry Calvert
and Charlie Ross, with Capt. Spike
James facing them in the nets. Gil
Samuelson alternated with Jim Lov-
ett on left wing.
James, Ross and Calvert upon
whom will rest most of the job of
turning back the visitors' scoring
drives, showed almost midseason
form. However, the forwards lacked
organization. Their passes were wide
and usually too far ahead of the in-
tended receiver to be effective. The
entire combination failed to show
the drive that will be necessary to
score against the seasoned team it
will face Saturday night.
This absence of the drive which is
so necessary in hockey has troubled
Lowrey all week, but he indicated
that it is quite possible that the team
will regain the needed aggressive-
ness in actual competition.
Kid Line Improves
Meanwhile, the all-sophomore kid
line of John. Corson, Bill Canfield
and Bob Collins worked at the other
end of the ice against Warren King
and Henry Manning, with Henry
Loud, sophomore reserve goalie turn-
ing them back with some fine net-
The work of the second line has
been improving, and with a little
seasoning should prove to be a de-
pendable combination. Manning,
King and Cliff Dance who shared
the defense work, are really for-
wards, and will be used in that capa-
city during the season.
As in the past, Lowrey will use
Ross and Calvert in the starting de-
fense line, almost the entire game.
When the Wolverines use a four-
man attack on power plays, however,
Stodden will be replaced by another
forward, and Ross will leave his de-
fense position to go up the ice with
the attacking line. Stodden will,
then be put in at defense to give
Ross a rest when the first line is tak-
en off.
Gophers Select Harmon,
Fritz On All-Opponent 11
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 30.-(A)-
Minnesota's football crew picked Don
Scott of Ohio State and Tom Har-
mon of Michigan ahead of Nile Kin-
nick, the sensational Iowa backfield
star, in an all-opponent team today.
Scott and Harmon as backs each
got more votes than Kinnick but only
two opopnents were unanimous
choices-Rankin, Purdue end, and
Enich, Iowa tackle,
Other first-team selections were
Method, Northwestern, Fritz, Michi-
gan, and Embick, Wisconsin, guards;
Haman, Northwestern, center; John-
son, Purdue, tackle; Sarkkinen, Ohio
State, end; and Paskvan, Wisconsin,

Statistics Show
Harmon Leads
Nation's Backs
Wolverine Tops Record;
Totaled 1,356 Yards
With Passes And Runs
SEATTLE, Dec. 1.-(W)-Tom Har-
mon, Michigan's great back who
rolled up 221 yards last week, ranked"
first as the nation's leading ground
gainer today, and also held the dis-
tinction of surpassing the 1938 rush-
ing leader.
American football statistical bureau
figures showed Harmon totaled 1,-
356 yards from both passes and scrim-
mage for an average of 169.5 yards,
per game and 6.08 yards per play.
In eight games, he carried the ball;
129 times and threw it 94 times, gain-
ing 868 yards on the ground and 488
in the air. His ground gain of 868
yards passed the 1938 leader, Len
Eshmont of Fordham, who totaled
After trailing Kay Eakin, the Ar-
kansas Traveler, for two weeks, Har-
mon zoomed into first place while
Eakin was idle. Eakin has accounted
for 1,150 yards in nine games.
'Hammer' Also Paces
Conference Rushing
CHICAGO, Dec. 1.-(M)-Tom Har-
mon, Michigan's backfield ace, wound
up as the No. 1 offensive man of the
Big Ten, statistics for the 1939 con-
ference football season disclosed to-
Harmon, playing in five games, led
in points with 61, in average yardage
by rushing per game with 88.8, and
in average yardage by both passing
and rushing with 167.6.
Harold Van Every of Minnesota,
while second to Harmon in average
gains per game by rushing, rolled up
the most yardage for the season in
this manner-452 in six games. Har-

er in last season's campaign who,
possesses some much needed height,
won't be out for several weeks yet.
Nick Reports Later
Also, the giant senior, John Nichol-
son will report late, since herhas to
recuperate from the grid wars that
just ended, and the hero of the Ohio
State battle, Fred Trosko, will prob-
ably not come out at all. Milo Sukup,
who won his letter last year, will
come out next week.
This leaves the Wolverines with
only three football players out for the
basketball squad at present which is
unusual, and they are Jim Grissen.
