Detroit Seeks
To Even Series
Against Bruins
Schmidt, Bauer To Play
For Boston, Reuniting
Famed Sauerkraut Line
(Special to The Daily)
BOSTON, April 7.-One game down
in their- fight for the Stanley Cup,
emblematic of world hockey suprem-
acy, Detroit's surprising Red Wings
will go into battle against the great
Boston Bruins' aggregation tomorrow
night at Boston Gardens in an at-
tempt to even the series at one
The Wings will be hampered by the
loss of veteran wingman Eddie Wares
who came up with a bruised shoulder
in Sunday night's contest, won by the
Bruins, 3-2. His place will be taken
by young Ed Bruneteau, who was
taken along to Boston for emergency
The Bruins likewise will go into the
game in a crippled condition since
Wild Bill Cowley, league's leading
scorer, is not likely to see service. The
famed Sauerkraut Line will probably
start the game intact, however, since
both Bobby Bauer and Milt Schmidt
are ready to go. Bauer missed Sun-
day's game and Schmidt left afterJ
the first period with an injured leg.
Johnnie Mowers, sensational De-
troit goalie, also cane out of the;
initial game somewhat the worse for;
wear but spent most of Monday hav-
ing an injured leg treated and will
definitely play tomorrow.7
The only encouraging feature of
Sunday's game, from a Detroit stand-
point, was the great play of blondl
Connie Brown, erstwhile member of
the Indianapolis Capitols. Brown
made two magnificent assists in the
Wings' third period rally which came
within an ace of tying the score. Al
third attempt, a pass to Sid Abel,i
failed when Frank Brimsek, Bruins'
goalie, came up with a great save of]
Abel's open shot.]

Fisher Looks
Over Hurlers
In Trial Game
After Cliff Wise struck out the
first three batters to face him in yes-
terday's practice game. Coach Ray
Fisher's pitching troubles seemed,
eased. But in the next inning Cliff
was tagged for three runs and four
hits and the varsity mentoris breath-
ing spell was over.
This was the first appearance of
the year for the lanky sophomore and
although he seemed to have plenty of
speed, his curve ball wasn't breaking
the way he wanted it to. He was re-
placed at the end of the third inn-
ing by Maynard Stoddard. The vet-
eran allowed no runs and three hits
and was ahead of most of the batters
that faced him in the three innings
he worked.
King of Swat for the day was Dick
Wakefield, The sophomore bean pole
clouted a home run and a single and
knocked in three runs to pace his
team's attack.
Fisher worked four other pitchers
besides Stoddard and Wise. Neil Muir
hurled the last three innings for the
varsity and allowed only one hit. For
the 'opposition Mase Gould, Charley
Ross and Les Veigel pitched three
innings apiece.
The game was a rather important
one as far as the boys on the team
were concerned because Fisher will
announce today the members who
will compose the squad on their
southern trip starting Thursday.

They held their semi-annual meeting yesterday and not since the goad
old days when Evashevski sent Harmon through the middle of the Gopher'
line four straight times has there been such a fine turnout of this austere
and upright group.
"Michigan should have at least tied for the National AAU swim-
ming tle," they howled with their super-critical and ever-wagging
tongues, and as usual the second guessers were all wet-
Their basic facts were as follows: (These are the official clockings of the

IFrom this we can see that the second guessers have doped it out
that Michigan, at its best, could have won the final relay and tied for
the title with its powerful foe from the Windy City.
But, oh deception, thy name is second-guesser. After listening to this
sort of rabble rousing for a good part of the afternoon, the Double did some

From these OFFICIAL AAU figures, we can see how cracked our sec-
ond-guessing friends have been. Michigan's best combination in the Satur-
day race was Michigan's BEST COMBINATION. There isn't a coach in
the business that could have done better . . . not even that most honorable
president of the Michigan chapter of second-guessers.
So until George Ceithaml calls the old statue of liberty play next
year when an ordinary end run would have meant the ball game, per-
haps we have heard the end of the second-guessers. Nothing would
be sweeter.
