Capt. Bob Petaja pushed a beautiful
backhand shot into the net.
The game was almost half over
before the Wolverines were able to
tie the score. Paul Goldsmith turned
the trick at 9:18 of the second period
with Kemp and Charley Ross, receiv-
ing credit for assists on the play.
A few seconds later, center Dave
Wilson of Tech was sent to the pen-
alty box for interference and the
Wolverines swarmed down the ice to
take advantage of the break.
Goalie Meyers turned in some sen-
sational saves but Gillis finally put
the Wolverines in the lead at 12:35
on passes from Bahrych and Stod-
Bert Stodden tallied the third Wol-
verine goal early in the thirdtperiod
on a sold dash the length of the ice.
It was a great bit of offensive play
since the little defense man had to
skate through the entire Tech team
to make the score.'
Fred Baird, burly Port Huron de-
fense man, scored for the visitors a
minute later with a 50-foot shot
which slipped between Hank Loud's
ankles to make the score 3-2.
It was all over but the shouting

Eddie Lowrey Smiles Again....
THROUGHOUT the opening battles in this 1941 hockey campaign, Ed-
die Lowrey used to sit on the Wolverine bench and watch his team
take beatings without getting discouraged.
"They're young and green. Yep, young and green," he used to say.
"Watch 'em. Give them some time. Why some of these kids are playing for
first time. Wait and see."
Well, the fireworks came last night on the Coliseum ice in the form
of a 6-2 shellacking of the Miner sextet from Michigan Tech.
The Wolverines had that certain something tnat Eddie has been prom-
ising us ever since the campaign got under way. Tech scored first, but
once Michigan settled down, the game took on a different light.
Skating faster, and charging harder, the Wolverines completely baf-
fled their foes from the Northland. They were alert and on the move. They
displayed a brand of checking that was crisper and more skillful than

Wolverines Compile Impressive
All-Sports Record During 1940
By HAL WILSON,
Concrete evidence that the old
catchline "Champions of the West"
is much more than just a hollow
boast was impressively supplied by
Michigan athletes in 1940.
During a year which saw more and
more of the cream of the world's
youth being cast under the crimson
shadow of Mars, Wolverine athletes
compiled a handsome all-sports won
and lost average of .630, sweeping
75 dual engagements while losing
but 44 and tying two.
In Western Conference competition
the Maize and Blue demonstrated
its sports power in dynamic fashion,
romping off with three champion-
ships, finishing second in four title
chases, and ending fourth, fifth and
sixth only once each.,.

juggernaut rounded out an unbeat-

house standings issued this week by

Phi Delts' lead will be a short-lived
one, with three sports - swimming,
water polo and handball - still un-

threat for the top position, since
they meet Phi Gamma Delta for the

conference championships, Coach
Ken Doherty's track powerhouse

F. And M. Surprise Move
Changes Team's Plans
Matt Mann got another dose of
the "Runout Powder" yesterday when
he received word from Lancaster,
Penn., that a scheduled swimming
meet between Franklin and Marshall
and the University of Michigan on
Jan. 17 had been called off.
Dick Price, one of the F&M stars
wrote that his "Athletic Committee
already has plans for the dates sug-£
gested" and so the second successive
team in two weeks had backed out
on the Wolverines. Only last week the
Pennsylvania A.C. of Philadelphia
cancelled their encounter with Mich-
Franklin and Marshall's surprise
action left the Maize and Blue team
with only a meet against the New
York A.C. at New York, Jan. 18. They
were to have two chances to show
their wares, but successive cancella-
tions blotted that out.
Instead of leaving next Thursday
for their swing through the East the
squad will depart from Ann Arbor
early Friday morning, returning late
Though the change in plans was
a disappointment, the team didn't
ease up on the terrific training pace
it set for itself after the Florida trip.
Jack Wolin, veteran diver who is
out of school this semester, has been
hard at work for the past few days
with T-Bone Martin and Lou Haugh-
ey, on the high board while the
swimmers have been churning the
Those green performers in the earlier battles, Kemp, Bahrfch and Gil-
lis, did exactly what Lowrey promised. While their hockey still has many
obvious flaws, there was improvement, but definitely.
Especially this Gillis. He'll be a big help to the Wolverine squad before
this year is finished. His switch from Matt Mann's swimming corps seems
more sensible every time he appears on the ice. Gillis has the ability, and
what's even more important, the necessary amount of guts. With a little
more polish and speed, big John will be right at the top of college hockey.
ONE THING LOWREY HAS TO WATCH this year is the temperament
of his squad. Tuesday night, for example, war broke out within
Wolverine ranks which was fortunately quieted before last night's tilt.
It all happened during one of the regular practice sessions. Gil
Samuelson was skating back and forth in front of Hank Loud at the net.
The Michigan goalie, who has the right to push an opponent out of the
crease, shoved Gil with his stick, but the blow went too high and cracked
Samuelson across the head.
Without hesitating, Gil dropped his stick, turned around and slugged
Hank. Lowrey raced over and chased Samuelson off the ice.
Disgusted with it all, Gil strutted off and set for home. By the time
he got there, however, Lowrey had called to say that all was forgiven.
Last night, Samuelson started for the Wolverines which proved
the coach's desire for lasting peace.
If Lowrey succeeds in keeping his squad working together smoothly
through the rest of the year, we ought to see some pretty fair hockey around
Ann Arbor this year.
