got off a weak shot that went six
feet wide of the net.
The Wolverine attack was led by
the offensive dashes of defensemen
Larry Calvert and Charlie Ross who
gave goalie Gustafson some busy mo-
ments. On their rushes, the 60-min-
ute men usually outskated their team
mates and went in on the Tech de-
fense alone.
They held down their back line
duties without a great deal of trouble
and after the first ten minutes of
play forced the northmen to change
their mode of attack. Instead of
trying to break through the Calvert-
Ross combination, the visitor resort-
ed to shooting the puck 'into the
Michigan defense zone and then try-
ing to come in and play the re-
bound.
The invaders' attack was led by
the clean hard-checking hockey of
center Maurice Villeneuve who kept
the Wolverines busy whenever he
carrid the puck. His constant efforts
were usually met by bruising checks
which sent him crashing to the ice,
but he always came up fast and got
back into the play.
In the goal for the visitors, be-
spectacled Kurt Gustafson was called
upon to stave off many Michigan
scoring threats. He got his first
chance early in the first period when
Jim Lovett and Paul Goildsmith broke
in on him on a nice pass play only
to have their attempt foiled by a
brilliant save.
Goldsmith Shoots Again
After thre minutes of the second
stanza,.,sGoldsmith again came in on
him after taking a perfect pass from
Larry Calvert, but Gustafson came
out to break up the play. However,
a few seconds later he was unable
to stop Larry Calvert's shot from the
left side of the net, when the de-
fenseman garnered the only point of
the game.
Only two penalties were meted out
during the entire 60 minutes of play,
and both of these went to the Huskies
Defenseman Arne Mars was waved in
the second period for tripping Char-
lie Ross, and "Moose" Mulliette drew
a third period trip to the cooler for
boarding Fred Heddle.
The, two teams will meet in the
second game of the series Saturday
night in the Coliseum after the bas-
ketball game.

To be on the safe side Minnesota,

THE JOHN MARSHALL

Bert Stodden, hard checking
wingman of the Michigan hockey
team, is known among Wolverine
puck fans for his ability to give as
much as he receives in a rough
contest. Bert played well on of-
fense last night as the Wolverines
took "their first victory of the sea-
son from Michigan Tech.
Yankees Pull
An other Coup;
Get Grissom
NEW YORK, Jan. 4. -(P)- This
town, where the Yankees are the
epitome of everything great, grinned
today with pleasure at the latest
coup of their world champ n base-
ball team.
For the Yankees, figuratively'
thumbing their noses at the Ameri-
can League ban which prevents them
from trading in theirpown league,
obtained Lefty Lee Grissom from the
Cincinnati Reds today in one of base-
ball's smartest winter deals.
All they gave up was a guy named
Joe-last name Beggs-from their
Newark farm. In two tries in the
big time Joe had not been able to win
consistently, so the deal didn't cost
the Yanks much.
It brings one of baseball's most col-
orful youngsters to a club that was
expected to be sorely in need soon
of another lefthander. With Gris-
som, the incomparable Lefty Gomez
and the studious Marius Russo, the
Yankees now seem to have a full
complement of southpaws for the
coming season.
Locally the thought was that Gris-
som, after some lean years, will
blossom out. Last year in 33 games,
Grissom won nine and lost seven,
but his work in blanking the Yanks
for one and a third innings in the
third game of the World Series was
believed largely responsible for Yan-
kees' interest in him.
Five teams will swing into the final
round of the volleyball tournament
this afternoon, with the first tilt
scheduled for 3:30 p.m. between Phi'
Delta Theta and Kappa Sigma. The
winner will play Sigma Nu for the
right to meet the winner of the Psi
Upsilon-Zeta Beta Tau contest in the
final match.
Psi U and Sigma Nu, last year's
champion and runner-up, respec-
tively, are favorites to repeat in
the first two spots.
Entries are still being taken for
the all-campus tennis tournament.
Competition for the title won last
year by Lawton Hammett will begin
Jan. 14.
Red Wings Beat Montreal
MONTREAL, Jan. 4. -(P)- The
Detroit Red Wings, scoring two goals
in the final period, sent the Montreal
Canadiens down to their eighth
straight loss tonight, defeating the
Canadiens, 3-2, before about 4,000
fans.

scores, and spend most of his defensive moments in the Missouri backfield

Unpleasant thought ... Back to the ice and snow and studies.

Keen Leaves Lineup Undecided
As Matmen Drill For First Meet

The varsity wrestling squad, only,
two days away from its opening
meet with the Dearborn AC Satur-
day, continued its hard drill schedule
yesterday, and at the end of the
workout Coach Cliff Keen declared
himself still undecided as to his
lineup.
Capt. Forrest "Butch" Jordan,
counted on for the heavyweight spot,
has been meeting stiff competition
from footballer Jack Butler, and even
his place is not assured. The 175-
pound division uncovered an unex-
pected threat in Emanuel "Knobby"
Knobloch, who is not giving up the
spot to letterman Don Nichols with-
out a fight.
Hottest competition is going on in
the next two classes. At 165, Ralph
Turner, winner in his only match
last year over the man who went on
to take the National AAU crown,
and sophomore Jim Galles are even
bets for the position. Art Paddy,

varsity gridder, is given a good
chance to get the nod over Harlan
Danner, Conference Champion in
1938, and back in school after a so-
journ in Mexico, in the 155-pound
class.
Johnny Paup has the 145-pound
spot tied up, but at 136 it is a toss-
up between John Raschbacker and
Jack Sergeant. Jim Butler at 128
and Tom Weidig at 121 complete
the team.
In the absence of any informa-
tion about the Dearborn squad, Coach
Keen is preparing for the worst. The
material available to the invaders
has been good in the past, and the
Wolverines will expect to see a strong
lineup appear for the meet which
will get underway at 3 p.m.

Penalty for roughing a passer in
the future will be enforced from the
spot of the previous down. In the
past, where a pass was completed or
intercepted, the penalty was enforced
from the spot of the foul, which often
made it necessary for the offended
team to refuse the penalty.
The speed-up signal reduces from
30 to 25 seconds the time allowed for
putting the ball in play. Whether
this will lead to elimination of the
much discussed huddle remains to be
seen.
No Material Specified
In disposing of the cleat problem
,he committee specified the points of
the conical cleats be three-eighths of
an inch instead of one half inch,
and the point head must be parallel
with the base. No material was speci-
fied, but the committee said it was
watching with interest manufactur-
ers' experiments with rubber and im-
pregnated canvass.
Two rules were clarified. In one,
officials were put on their guard
to determine if a free ball is inten-
tionally or unintentionally kicked. In
another, it was made clear that on
'ticks from behind the line of scrim-
nage protection is given the kicker
only when it is "reasonably obvious"~
what he is going to kick. This ap-
plies especially to quick kicks made
from close to the scrimmage line.
Present at the meeting were Chair-
man Walter R. Okeson of Lehigh;
William J. Bingham of Harvard, W.
G. Crowell, Narbeth, Pa.; Fielding H.
Yost of Michigan, George Veenker,
Iowa State; Dana X. Bible of Texas;
L. H. Mahony, Denver; Willis O. Hun-
ter of the University of Southern
California, and life member Amos
Alonzo Stagg of College of the Paci-
fic.
