found the lead constantly changing
With five and one half minutes of
the second half gone, Michigan lost
guard George Ruehle on personal
fouls. Don Blanken, high scorer for
the night, made good on both free
throws awarded him on the occasion
to break a 23-23 deadlock.
Mike Sofiak knotted the score
once more, on a lay-up shot, only
to have Blanken put the Riveters
back in the lead on a one-hander
from the foul-line.
From that point on, the lead see-
sawed back and forth until Blank-
en's pivot man shot with six minutes
to play provided the Boilermakers
with a 41-37 advantage and set the
stage for the decision that kept the
tilt from going into an overtime ses-
.iMandler, Sofiak and Brogan prac-
tically took charge of the whole Wol-
verine offense as they chalked up 33
of the losers' 40 points. Mandler tal-
lied 13 markers and his two pint-
sized cohorts made ten apiece.
Blanken, one of the Big Ten's
leading scorers last season, was held
in check fairly well from the floor
tonight, but hooped eight out of ten
foul shot, which, added to three bas-
kets, netted him 14 points and scoring
honors for the encounter.,
Don Blemker and "Red" Caress
also aided the Boilermaker cause no
little by holding three Michigan right
forwards scoreless.
The Wolverines, defeated in their
first two Big Ten starts, will go af-
ter their opening Conference tri-
umph tomorrow night when the Oos-
terbaanmen meet Illinois at Cham-
paign, Ill.

the Miners a two-goal lead with Wil-
son again doing the scoring. The
goal came on a rebound shot after a
great diving save by Loud.
The Huskies didn't let up on their
offensive drive after the second
score. They continued to storm the
Michigan net and Loud had to give
a great exhibition of net-minding for
the next few minutes to keep the
score from mounting any higher.
The little goalie turned in a number
of great saves in quick succession.
Robillard Hit By Stick
Little Bob Robillard, the Miners'
five-foot three-inch wing man, was
injured afew-minutes before the
period ended when he had the mis-
fortune to be on the receiving end
of a swinging stick and got a slight
cut over the left eye. He left the
game to be patched up and came
back at the beginning of the second
The Wolverines didn't get theirl
first score until the last minute ofj
the first period when Bert Stodden
broke into the clear in front of the
net, after taking a pass from Paull
Goldsmith, and fired the disc into thel
cords at 19:21.
It didn't take the Wolverines long
to go into the lead after the second
period had started. Stodden tied it
up by scoring on a long shot at 4:21
and Captain Ross put his team ahead
two minutes later by letting a shot
fly from the blue line which con-

room for the remainder of the con-!
Late in the period, sophomore wing-
man Bob Kemp got clear and fired,

one of the two matches when Leo
Goldberg, former National YMCA
champ, won on points, 13-8. The
match was close until the last period
when Goldberg gained four points on
a near fall.
At 155-pounds, Capt. Bill Combs
played around with Dan Smuck,
coming close to several near falls.
The winning score was 18-3.
Michigan's Art Paddy tackled Pete
Benio in the 165-pound class. The
men were evenly matched, and Paddy
finally came up with a win when he
threw Benio at 4:10 with a half-
nelson and arm lock.

Jim Galles, regular 175-pound grap-
pler, tangled with George Williams
at 191-pounds. Williams, who was
defeated by Intercollegiate Champ
Don Nichols last year in the 175-
pound class, was overweight and
had none of the finesse he showed
last year.
In the unlimited weight class, John
Wilson wrestled Dearborn's Joe
Smuck. Both men grappled on even
terms until Smuck gained four points
on a near fall in the third period.

footing Johnny Quigley of Manhat-
tan by seven yards in the Veterans
of Foreign Wars' 600-yard invitation
event tonight at Boston Garden.
Jimmy Herbert of New York, world
record holder for the "600" and last
year's meet winner, wound up a bad-
ly-defeated third as Cochran burst
the tape in 1:12.9.
Greg Rice, the recent Notre Dame
star, raced a steady but slow 9:12.2
effort in the two-mile to defeat his
outstanding rival, Don Lash, Indiana's
flying policeman, by five yards in the
co-feature event.
Rice, never worse than third in the
eight-man field and second most of
the time, took the lead away from
Ralph Schwarzkopf of Michigan, with
six laps to go, then fought off Lash
and held on firmly until he broke
the tape.
With a surprising effort, Luigi Be-
cali, who won an Olympic title for
Italy back in 1932, managed to hang
on grimly and take third place, with
the veteran Joe McCluskey of the
New York A.C., who once wrapped up
these events with monotonous regu-
larity, finishing fourth.

MONTREAL, Que., Jan. 11.-(P)-
The Boston Bruins extended their
unbeaten streak to seven straight
games tonight by defeating the Mon-

period rally. They went into third
place alone in the National Hockey
League standings, breaking a tie with
the idle Chicago Blackhawks.

The Leafs went out in front early

They added four goals in the middle
session and three more in the closing

Bert Stodden, Ann Arbor senior,
split honors with his co-defense-
man, Capt. Charlie Ross, last night
as the Wolverines defeated the
Michigan Tech Huskies, 4-3. Stod-
den scored two goals.
Kemp, attempting a follow-up,
crashed into the goalie and knocked
!him to the ice. Meyers was injured
but stayed in the game.
Ross Scores Fourth Goal
Mhre Ross scored the fourth
Michigan goal at 10:07 of the third
I period on another solo dash to put
his team two goals ahead. The Wol-
verines held this lead until 18:47 of
the last period when tiny Bob Robil-
lard pushed the puck past Loud in
the midst of a desperate Tech power
play. Pat Thornton and Tony Phil-
lipich got assists on the play.
Evidence that the Huskies were in
much better form last night than
Thursday is supplied by the fact that
Hank Loud, the Michigan goalie, was
forced to make 36 saves as compared
with only 13 in the first game.
Captain Petaja and Bob Robillard
were the outstanding players for the
visitors although Jack Ruhl looked as
though he might have turned in
plenty of good hockey if he hadn't
been forced to depart so early.in the
