Okey 'Smokey'
Dear Corner:
I was interesten in your col-
umn in Tuesday's Daily which I
understand wasn't written by
you, but by Herb Lev. At any
note, it said that Mr. Roy "Smok-
ey" Reynolds claimed that he
couldn't stop play in the Mc-
Master game Saturday night
when Bert Stodden was injured,
because the rules require the
referee to wait until the injured
man's team has possession of the
puck before blowing the whistle.
Knowing something of the
game itself' andhaving a rule
book in my desk, I wish to refute
your statement. The rule book
I have is the official rules of the
National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation published by Spalding
for 1939-40.
Rule 9, section 1, part c reads-
Should any player (except the
goalkeeper) be injured during
the match, break a skate or
from any accident be compelled
to leave the rink, the referee, or
assistant referee, shall stop the
play, and a substitute shall im- I
mediately take the place of the
player leaving the rink.
As you can see, the rule says
nothing about the injured man's
team being in possession of the
puck before the referee can blow
the whistle. In fact there, is no 3
such an idea anywhere in the
There are three possible ex-
planations for your statement in '
The Daily: 1) Either Lev mis-
understood Reynold's explanation
of the rule; 2) Reynolds didn't
see Stodden lying on the ice (I
doubt this for I saw Reynolds
looking at Stodden several sec-
onds before he blew the whistle);
3) Reynolds didn't know the rule
This last is probably the most
logical explanation in view of
some of Reynold's previous de-
cisions. It might be a good thing
for "Smokey" to brush up on
the rules of collegiate hockey.
The Skunks' record-setting efforts
Tuesday night proved insufficient to
earn them undisputed possession of
first-place in the All-Campus Bowl-
ing League, since the Splits won
again to remain tied for the coveted
first niche. The Lawyers remained
in second, while the Spares and
Stickers are tied for third.
Two of the Skunks' three new
marks were set by Jeff Pace, who
rolled a new single-game high
of 268 and a three-game series
record of 655. He then joined
his teammates to hang up a team
series record of 2825.
The matches were the last Campus
League tilts to be held before vaca-
will conclude the first half of the
tion, after which one more match

Mr. W.B.C., Jr. is quite right
in saying that this rule says noth-
ing about the necessity of the 1
injured man's team being in pos-
session of the puck before the
referee can blow his whistle.,
Whether there is no such idea
anywhere in the book, we are '
not sure. But it is tacitly under-
stood that time can not be called
unless the injured man's team
has possession.
The logic is simple. If the opposi-
tion should break away and be head-
ed for a sure score, one of the more
histrionic among the other could
skate gracefully over to the referee
and swoon in front of him, thus forc-'
ing that official to call time out and
stop the play pronto and immediate-
ly. Or right away. This would provet
most embarassing to the offensive;
team and they would undoubtedly'
make the official feel even more em-
barrassed. In other words, there
could be so much faking when the
opposing team obtained a palpable
advantage and might score that the
game could be slowed up (or down)
as you prefer almost as long as the
thespians remained on skates. And
Local 147 of the International Asso-
ciation of Theatrical and Stage Em-
ployes would charge the Coliseumi
with using scab labor.
Coach Eddie Lowrey admits ,
that his team often has tried to
fool the officials into calling this,
says that other teams pull the
same thing. And Lowrey also
admits that had he been in
Smokey's skates, he'd have called
it the same'way. He adds that
the same situation has been
called the same way for quite
some time.
By the way Mr. W.B.C., Jr., (say,
this sounds like a radio station),
there is so slight a difference between
collegiate and professional hockey as
to be almost imperceptible. The main
point on which they part is that there
is no body checking in the college
game. Outside of this, the others are
scarcely worth mentioning. Even if
we knew them.

The six men who saw action against
State, Capt. Jim Rae, Charlie Pink,
Herb Brogan, Mike Sofiak, Bill Cart-
mill and Bob Fitzgerald are the most
logical choices among those who are
in linehto make the trip, because of
their showing up to'date.
Four Posts Open
However, the remaining posts ap-
pear to be anybody's even at this late
period. Dave Wood, a senior forward,
was out for a week with a knee injury,
and is now staging a strong battle for
one of the berths although not yet in'
top playing form.
On the injury list, which is com-
plicating matters for Oosterbaan, are
sophomore Jim Grissen, who has been
slowed up by a charlie horse this
week, and Joe Glasser, a junior, who
has been hampered by a cold since
last Thursday.
All of these men stand a good I
chance of making the trip if they can
get back into good condition by the
end of the week. Increasing the dif-
ficulty of the problem is Harold Wes-
terman, who after being out with a
hip injury for several weeks, has
been showing rapid improvement in
practice sessions to indicate that he
can't be counted out.
Ruehle, Herrmann After Places
Among the stalwarts bidding strong-
ly for traveling posts are George
Ruehle, who is one of the most im-
proved juniors on the squad this sea-
son, and Bill Herrmann, who has
been playing good ball consistently.
Right along with these players are
two sophomores, Norm Call and Don
Holman, who canont be counted out
of the running. Call reported late
for practice, since he was on the foot-
ball squad, but he was fighting for
a second string berth four days after
he came out.
Holman has been in fighting ever
since the workouts began, and his
speed and aggressiveness may stand
him in good stead when the team is
finally selected.

NEW YORK, Dec. 13. -(P)- The
Cincinnati Reds should feel better
now. The team which took four
straight World Series games from
them was the No. 1 team of all sports
for 1939 in the opinion of a vast
majority of experts balloting in the
ninth annual Associated Press poll.
This is the fourth straight year the
Yanks have won this honor.
Second place was the real bone of
contention among the experts, with
four football teams in a tight race
for the honor. Iowa, with 37/2
points, including 71/2 first-place votes,
finally won the runnerup position,
with Southern California third with
34, Tennessee fourth with 33, and
Cornell fifth with 26.

Has Year's Best Time
He first made his presence known
this year when he won his heat of
the quarter-mile last Saturday af-
ternoon in 50.5 seconds-no record,
to be sure, but the best time of the
year, and a half-second better than
he did at the corresponding time
last year. And, he's nowhere near
in as good condition as he was then.

Kodros Is Undecided
About Playing Pro Ball
Archie Kodros, captain and cen-
ter of the 1939 Wolverine eleven, said
last night that he has not decided
as yet whether he would accept a bid
to play professional football or enter
the Business Administration School
next fall, as he had planned.
Drafted by the Green Bay Packers,
of the Naional Professional Football
League, a few days ago, Archie re-
vealed that he has not received any
official correspondence from the
Packer club, and said he will defer
a final decision until he does.

nothing else, to his youth.
And so, while visitors still glancel

ing something unexpected, Warren
will continue working harder to run
ever better.

In his first year, Don went through
the season withou a defeat and went
on to win the Big Ten title. Among
his dual meet victories was a triumph
over Traicoff the Terrible which set
off the spark to a bitter rivalry.
Last season, Don won seven
straight dual meet matches, but in
the Midwest meet which preceded
the campaign, he was forced to be
content with a draw with Traicoff. The
Hoosier missed the dual meet with
Michigan because of a knee injury
but the rivalry was renewed at the
Big Ten meet where Nichols, after a
savage match, was forced to give up
his crown on the heels of a narrow
3 to 2 defeat. Hostilities came to
an unhappy end for Don when the
two grapplers again came face to
face in the National Intercollegiate
meet at Lancaster, Pa. Another
tooth-and-nail encounter, typical of
all of their tussles, resulted in a hard-
earned overtime victory for Traicoff.
But the business at hand no longer
centers around Traicoff. It now spells
Inman, and by the time the Indiana
match rolls around, Don should be
primed for revenge. There's noth-
ing he hates more than to have to
say "when," especially to a Hoosier.
