Wolverine Cagers Play Michigan ormal Here



Attractive Indoor Cinder Card
Feces Michigan's Titleholders

A championship schedule for a de-
fending championship squad.
That's the pleasing set-up in store
for Wolverine track fans as a result
of diplomatic maneuvers at the an-
nual Western Conference coaches'
meeting last week. The attractive
six meet card arranged for Michi-
gan's Big Ten titleholding track pow-
erhouse offers Coach Ken Doherty
ample opportunity to display his
second Maize and Blue cinder squad
to Wolverine fans and at the same
time get concrete evidence of its cap-
Open With Illinois Relays
After the interclass fracas this Sat-
urday in which the sophomores and
seniors will settle their blazing feud,
the trackmen will continue their
steady, albeit slow, process of round-
ing into top condition. Then on
February 15 the Dohertymen will
trek down to Champaign, Ill., for
their season's initial test at the an-
nual Illinois Relays. Some of the
Mid west's best talent will be striv-
ing to stop the Wolverines from
dominating the affair as they have
for the past three years.
But the Illinois meet is only a pre-
lude to Michigan's primary aim-re-
venge on the Pittsburgh Panther crew
which rudely shattered the Wolver-
ines' long dual meet win streak last
spring, 67-64. The Panther indoor
meet, to be staged in Yost Field
House Feb. 21, stacks up in the eyes

of the Wolverine thinclads as the
glorious chance to explode all the
vengeful, pent-up emotion which has
accumulated since they absorbed that
painful licking.
Meet Spartans Away
Four days later, on Feb. 25, the
Dohertymen will pay a visit to Michi-
gan State's new Jenison fieldhouse
to engage in the annual triangular
meet with the Spartans and Michi-
gan Normal.
Returning to the familiar cinders
of Yost Field House Michigan plays
host to Ohio State's invading out-
fit. The Buckeyes caused the Maize
and Blue more trouble than antici-
pated in a dual meet last spring and
should provide very tough opposi-
tion here March 1.
Seek Eighth Title
Then comes the whipped cream of
the Wolverines' indoor track pudding
-the Conference meet at Purdue
March 7 and 8. In this, the culmina-
tion of Big Ten indoor cinder activity,
Michigan will be very hard-pressed to
hang onto its laurels which include
the last seven consecutive indoor
titles. Indiana's Hoosiers loom as the
most serious obstacle for the Doherty-
men to hurdle.
Closing out the indoor schedule are
the annual Butler Relays at In-
dianapolis March 15.

(Special To The Daily)
12.-The University of Michigan hoc-
key team will arrive here at 11 a.m.
tomorrow for a two-game series with
Colorado College. The first game
will be played Friday night and the
teams will meet again the following
The Wolverines have played two
games so far this season and have
been defeated in both of them. They
lost their opening game to London
(Ont.) Athletic Club by a 7-5 score
in overtime and were beaten by the
University of Western Ontario, 5-4,
last Saturday.
Miners Slight Favorite
The betting here makes the Miners
a slight favorite on the strength of
two defeats of Michigan last season
by a score of 4-2 and 4-3. However,
the Ann Arbor club is known to be
greatly improved and, although the
Colorado squad is also stronger, a
Wolverine victory tomorrow night
would not be classed as an upset.
Coach Eddie Lowrey of Michigan
is bringing a squad of ten men, in-
cluding a goalie, two defensemen, six
forwards and one player who can fill
in either as a wing or a defenseman.
Outstanding player on the Wolver-
ine squad is Capt. Charley Ross who
plays right defense and is also the
leading offensive threat of the Michi-
gan squad. Ross scored 13 goals last
season and made three assists. His
two last-period goals in last Satur-
day's game with Western Ontario
kept the Wolverines in the battle un-
til the final gun.
Stodden To Pair With Ross
Playing beside Ross on the defense
line will be fiery little Bert Stodden,
senior star, whose fine work is often
underestimated because of the out-
standing play of Captain Ross.
In the nets for the Wolverines will
be diminutive Hank Loud, playing his
first season of intercollegiate hockey.
Although twelve goals have been
scored on him in his first two games,
Loud accomplished the prodigious
feat of making well over 100 saves
in these two games.
Paul Goldsmith, lanky New Eng-
land junior, will probably hold down
the starting center position for the
visitors, flanked by sophomore Bob
Kemp and veteran 'Jimmy Lovett.
Goldsmith, a fine hockey stylist, is an
excellent Play-maker and sets up a
good many goals for the Wolverines.

Ypsi Furnishes Warm-Up
For Hard Compeiitioni
Of Vacation Schedule
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's Var-
sity cagers face a "breather" in their
schedule tomorrow night when the
Wolverines pia, host to the kids
from across the tracks, Michigan
Normal, at Yost Field House.
It's been a long time since the
Ypsi lads were last seen on a Michi-
gan court. The last time was back in
1936 when Jake Townsend, Johnny
Gee & Co. administered the Hurons
a severe spanking to the tune of
Varsity Drubbed Hurons
The year before that, the Varsity
had drubbed the Hurons, 37-17, but
the score wouldn't have been that
close had not some big-hearted Wol-
verine thrown a basket for the down-
trodden visitors.
This season, Coach Elton Rynear-
son's team shouldn't prove any
tougher for the Varsity to conquer.
Thus far this season the Hurons
have played three games and have
lost them all. After doing what no
team ever should do, and dropping
their opener to the Alumni, 42-37,
they continued their inauspicious
start by losing the next game to
Wayne by a score of 45-34. And last
night, after leading by six points at
the half, they folded up in the stretch
and succombed to Central State
Teacher's College, 29-27.
Stiff Schedule Ahead
So Captain Herb Brogan and. his
mates aken'it losing too much sleep
over the Ypsi game. The tilt should
be a good warmup for the stiff va-
cation schedule that confronts the
Varsity. Starting next Thursday,
Michigan meets Notre Dame, Butler,
Princeton and Pittsburgh within a
The Normal game should also af-
ford the Wolverines a chance to
brush up on some of the rough spots
detected in the Michigan State game
and give Oosterbaan an opportunity
to look over some of his reserve ma-

Colorful Eddie Lowrey has been
guiding the fortunes of Michigan
hockey teams for the past 13 years.
Ile's had some great teams in past
years and although the Wolverines
dropped their first two contests this
year, Eddie has high hopes that
they will bounce back to give the
powerful Minnesota and Illinois
squads plenty of trouble.
Red Sox Buy
Detroit Fielder
Tigers Let Pete Fox Go,
But He's Not Surprised
DETROIT, Dec. 12-(MP)-Ervin
(Pete) Fox, a ball player who gained
a large following in Detroit by con-
sistent, workmanlike performance,
was sold today by the Tigers to the
Boston Red Sox for an undisclosed
amount of cash.
The 31-year-old outfielder, a na-
tive of Evansville, Ind., had patrolled
the Tiger gardens for eight seasons.
"Pete wasn't a regular here last
year and we didn't figure he would
make the grade in 1941," said general
manager Jack Zeller of the Tigers.
"A change in scenery may benefit
Announcement of the deal pro-
bably didn't surprise Fox because for
a long time there has been gossip
saying he was to be involved in this
trade or that one.
As a fielder Fox ranks among the
best in the business. His arm is not
regarded as powerful, but he throws
with accuracy.
Fox came to the Tigers in the
spring of 1933 after having been de-
veloped at Beaumont of the Texas
League by Del Baker, present Detroit
manager. Fox was a Tiger regular
through 1939, boasting a seven-year
major league hitting average of .303.
Last season he alternated in right
field with Bruce Campbell and Ear]
Averill, two former Cleveland In-
dians. He batted .289 in 93 games.
