Hockey coach Eddie Lowrey an-
nounced yesterday afternoon that 11
members of the Michigan puck squad
will receive Varsity awards for their
work during the season just conclud-

Winners of the major letters are
Capt. Charley Ross, Captain-elect
Paul Goldsmith, Bob Collins, Max
Bahrych, Johnny Gillis, Fred Heddle,
Hank Loud, Jimmy Lovett, Gil Sam-
uelson, Bert Stodden and Bob Fife.
Ross, Lovett and Stodden are hon-
ored for the third consecutive year.
Those winning monograms for the
first time are Loud, Bahrych, Gillis,
and Fife. Gillis is a junior but he
devoted all his efforts to swimming
last year, changing to hockey for the
1940-41 season. Loud played every
minute of every game at the goalie's
position. Bahrych worked as center
on the second line for the most of the
year and Fife, although he didn't
become eligible until the second se-
mester, has held down a regular wing
position on the first line since that
Reserve numerals went to Roy
Bradley, a wing who made most of
the trips with the team; John Corson,
a letter-winner last year; Hugh Mc-
Veigh, spare goalie and Ed Reich-
ert, a defenseman who has not played
in a regular contest this season. Low-
rey is counting on Reichert for plenty
.of service next season.

Tenis Team Should Be Strong
Contender For Big Ten Crown

Notice to all Big Ten tennis teams:
"Beware of a gang of racket-wielders
who answer to the call of the Mich-1
igan Wolverines. These men are dan-
gerous when aroused and may prove
to be the biggest contenders to cap-
ture Northwestern's tennis crown."
'Five surprise packages are all
wrapped up and ready for delivery,
and the sixth one hasn't emerged
as a finished product yet.
Out of the first package will pop

Meet To Hold
Student Race
A race open to students ofbthe Uni-
versity of Michigan will be "one of
the highlights of the speed-skating
meet to be held at the Coliseum Sat-
urday, Coach Eddie Lowrey of the
Michigan hockey team announced
yesterday. Lowrey relays the infor-
mation from the Michigan branch of
the Amateur Skating Union %f the
United States, the organization which
is sponsoring the meet.
Any student who wishes to enter
may inquire in person or by telephone
at the Coliseum. The admission
charge to the meet, which will fea-
ture the leading speed skaters of
Michigan, will be 50 cents. This
charge wil include the entry fee for.

.aThe. events ,in which state cham-
pions will be decided are the 220-yard
dash, the 440, the 880 and the mile.

any records which are set during this
meet will be recogr4zed'a& official, in-

Besides such notables as Vjnrce.Bo-
zich, Terry and Art Browrie and Dick
Russell of Detroit, Roy lielminski of
Wyandotte, Joe McDonald and Jim
Koinis of Saginaw' and Bill Katzen-
berger' of Flint, there will be" several
feminine stars present. .Among them
will be DetroW's Margaret Cook, Hel-
en and Esther Wrona and Bonnie
Doyle of Saginaw and Shirley Gib-
bons of Flint:

the peak of his form and should prove
to be one of the best tennis play-
ers in the Western Conference.
Junior Lawton Hammett, ineligible
last year, will appear in the second
bundle. Possessing one of the best net
games that has been seen on the ten-
nis squad for a number of years,
Hammett wil probably hold down the
number two spot on Coach Leroy
Weir's squad.
Another junior who was ineligible
last season will be accounted for as
Jim Porter takes the court to serve
in the number three slot. A steady,
cool, and resourceful player, Porter
has showed an excellent brand of
tennis in his daily workouts in the
Sports Building.
Perhaps the most terrific server
on the whole squad is Wayne Still,
a letterman from last year's cam-
paign. Although quite erratic at
times, his steadiness at the net will
help him gain the unmber four po-
Tom Gamon, another veteran from
last year, will no doubt fill the num-
ber five position when Weir takes
his netmen on their annual Southern
trip three weeks hence. Gamon also
has a good, hard service and an ex-
cellent forehand, but needs improve-
ment on backhand drives.
At present the remaining position
on the team is still a mystery. Several
players are battling it out in the
ladder tournament to see who will
represent the Wolverines in the last
singles matches.

. . . Rumors have reached the
Double which foreshadow trouble
ahead in the National AAU meet here
early in April . . . It seems that the
enemy may be ganging up in order
to overthrow the indomitable Wol
verines . . . Matt Mann's greatest
threat comes this year from the pow-
erful Chicago Towers Club .t.h. And
latest reports say that Iowa's great
rookie breaststroki~g star, Al Povilai-
tis, will probably be wearing a Tower
Club uniform by meeting time . . .
He intends to swim for the Hawkeyes
in the Collegiates at East Lansing
next week and then drop out of
school to join Keifer, Jaretz, Kirar
and the rest at Chicago . . . He will
be called for army service shortly
afterwards according to the reports
. If this is true, Michigan will def-
initely have trouble ahead.

"Well,'he's got a crew cut now 'cause

The Double chuckled a bit and
said maybe ... A few hous later

Wolin before," spoke the sweet
young voice. "Well, anyway, I just
called to say that I was kidding

timber-toppers, junior Al Thomas
and yearling Chuck Pinney, displayed
complete disregard for the fine rep-

a stunning blanket finish.
Thomas' time for the event, 7.4

sent the Michigan wrestling team in
the National Intercollegiate mat
tournament which will get under way
With only two grapplers repre-
sented. the Wolverines will be unable
to present any serious threat for the
team title, but both Galles and Court-
right will go after the individual
crowns in their respective weights.:.
In the samec tournament last year,
Keen's charges finished third behind
Oklahoma A&M and Indiana.
The two Michigan grapplersare
conceded excellent chances of placing
high in the meet. Galles, especially,
is given a better than even chance
to carry away a title in the 175-
pound class. He will attempt to con-
tinue his winning streak which last
saw him take the Big Ten title at
Columbus, Ohio
Pre-meet dope has established the
Oklahoma matmen favorites to walk
off with their eighth National Chain-
pionship,,and their fifth straight. In
dual meets this year, they have very
decisively defeated Minnesota, Con-
ference champ, and Michigan State's
highly-touted squad.
Of the team entries, four in par-
ticular are expected to give the Okla-

Paul Goldsmith, who has just been
elected captain of next year's varsity
hockey squad, reported to Baseball
Coach Ray Fisher at the Field House
yesterday afternoon for a locker and
equipment, announcing his intention
of beginning workouts this afternoon.
As Goldy left, the perspiring Fish-
er sat down on the bench and looked
around him. "Hey," he said, "you
know I've got five captains down
here now? That is, four captains
and one ex." The mentor's list in-
cludes Goldsmith andmhistpredecessor,
Charley Ross; next year's basketball,
captain, Bill Cartmill; football cap-
tain, Bob Westfall; and, of course,
Bill Steppon, who leads the diamondl
squad from his second-base spot.
This was more or less of a casual
observation on Ray's part, and it may
or may not mean anything. But it
can't hurt any squad to have on hand
five athletes who were well enough
