record for the current campaign.
Larry Armstrong's crew came out on
top over the London A.C. by a 5-3
score and defeated a strong Yale
squad 5-4 to break a 12-game win-
ning streak for the Elis.
Minnesotans defeats have come at
the hands of Yale and Illinois while
they have battled to ties with the
London club and the Illini.
This year's Gopher hockey team is
a far cry from the days of Frank St.
Vincent, Rough and Ready John
Mariucci, Haydon Pickering et al.
The present local club is a small
team and lacks the dcive and stam-
ina of last year's invincible outfit.
That smallness almost cost the lads
their victory over Yale. Leading 5-2
at the start of the third period, they
tired and barely managed to eke
out a 5-4 win over the Blue.
Paulsen Paces Team
Pacing the Minnesota attack are
speedy Harold (Babe) Paulsen and
Ken Cramp, veteran defense man.
Paulsen, captain of, the team, plays
right wing for the Gophers and is
one of therfastest players in college
hockey. Freddie Junger, another
speed merchant, will team up with
Paulsen at the left wing spot.
On the back line, the home club
will be very well fortified with Ken
Cramp and Ian Anderson. Cramp
is a senior and is well-known to
Michigan players for his vicious body
checks and generally fine defensive
play during the past two seasons.
Anderson replaces the graduated
John Mariucci who is now with the
Chicago Blackhawks.
Marty Falk Gone
It is the goalie's spot that Coach
Larry Armstrong has had the hardest
time filling this year. With Marty
Falk gone, the Gophers have had no
less than three net-minders on the
roster since the beginning of the pre-
season practice sessions. The best
two of these are Ray 'Fischer and
Burt Joseph and bothihave seen
plenty of service in Varsity contests
this year. Barring last minute

changes, Joseph will get the call to-
night against the Wolverines.
New Wolverine Faces
Eddie Lowrey, the Michigan coach,
will probably start a team which in-
cludes four men who have never ap~
peared on the local ice before. The
only two veterans in the starting
six will be Capt. Charley Ross and
Bert Stodden, Michigan's two 60-
minute defense men.
Diminutive Hank Loud will be in
the nets for the Wolverines while
two sophomores will hold down jobs
on the starting forward line. Max,
Bahrych will handle the center slot
with Bob Kemp at right wing.
At the left wing position, Minne-
sota fans will see Johhny Gillis, a
Hibbing boy who passed up Minne-
sota to go to Michigan because they
had a good swimming team at Ann
Arbor, then decided to play hockey

Dear Mr. Double (Talk):
T HAS BEEN called to my attention by a sophomore classmate that you
consider yourself an authority on basketball, and worse than that, have
resumed your second-guessing technique-this time in defense of the
Michigan basketball team. Although I consider it a waste of time to read
either your columns or those of any of the other "experts," sports or other-
wise, on your rag, this particular issue interests me.
You have often'blown off with great gusto and equal error. But
seldom have you been as mistaken as when you stick up for this year's
Michigan squad. You can "Stick to the Finish" if you wish, but bloody
messes T avoid.
Some might call your conclusions wishful thinking. I call them plain
dumbness. (Not exactly foreign to most sports "experts." You probably
have a great future.)
Would you dare to print MY opinions? Go ahead and censor them.
I've seen good basketball players and good teams but Michigan is not
in that class. It's nothing to get excited about, but you can at least be honest
with your half-dozen part-time readers.
Michigan will be lucky to win another basketball game this season.
You write that Michigan "was listless, sloppy and out-spirited" in
the Illinois game. Can you tell me at any time this season when Michi-
gan wasn't?
Don't pull any of that Michigan State game stuff on me. I was there
and saw the shots State's players made and missed and I saw them stand
around picking their own noses and those of everyone in the audience when
Michigan had the ball. State simply didn't have a basketball team that
night. They couldn't have beaten U. High.
To make it short and sweet (the less for you to cut out), we are not com-
plaining about the coaching, nor about the men on the squad. As you say,
they really aren't a bad bunch of " - - - - here you said "players" and made
a mistake. It should have been "boys."
To classify any of the Michigan squad as a. "player" on the basis
of his 1940-41 performance is an exaggeration, the grossness of which
can be duplicated only in the sports column of a newspaper. Frankly,
and I know what I'm talking about-they stink.
Take off the rose-colored glasses, Sonny. Like the Old Man once said
about football, it isn't the first downs that win games--its the touchdowns.
And it isn't- the shots which hit the rim that count-it's the shots that go in
-the kind Michigan doesn't get.
Jake the Junior
Dear Jake,
IT WAS A PLEASURE hearing from you, kind sir. The Double always
-appreciates getting correspondence from our friends, and admirers, and
experts, and stuff. You, of course, quite properly fit into the last category.
Too bad that the Double wasn't around when you carefully pinned
your delightful and constructive note to our bulletin board. I can see
you in my mind though. I know your type well.
On a basketball court, you probably would be taken for a ballet dancer
imitating a drooping lily. If you attempted to run up and down the floor
once or twice, they'd have to call the fire department to haul your remains
off the hardwood.
But you know your basketball, let there be no question about that. You
know everything there is to know about the players, (or should I say "Boys")
including the finger they use for their picking.
My rose-colored glasses are off, father, and my eyes are pinned
djreetly and firmly upon your wormy figure. I suppose if a guy gets
off on the wrong foot, you're the kind of vulture that believes in ampu-
tating the leg.
For heaven's sake, man, the season has only started. Hold back that
vicious and unfair tongue of yours until the team is really in the dumps.
Slash them down when they quit fighting and trying, but until then, at
least give them a chance.
Frankly, the Double still thinks the squad will come through. For your
sake, we firmly hope that both Wisconsin and Minnesota go down
this coming weekend.

meet. Matt's sophomores who are
battling for first team positions, will

Jack Patten and Jim Skinner, both'
of whom scored impressive victories
against the Quakers will swim in
their specialty races this evening.
Patten is listed as starter for Michi-
gan in both the distance races-220
and 440 yards.
Skinner Swims Twice
Young Jim Skinner, hampered ear-
lier in the week by a cold, appears to
have recovered enough to go after
points in the 200 yard breast stroke
and the opening leg of the 300 yard
medley relay.
The veterans on the Michigan
squad are in for a real workout in
this meet. Gus Sharemet, head man
in the nation at 100 yards will not
only swim that but the 50 as well,
and the 400 yard free style relay.
Barker In Both Relays
Charley Barker is the relay man of
the night. A free styler by rights.
Charley will swim backstroke on the
medley relay and end the evening's
festivities with a free style leg on
the 400 yard relay.
In the absence of Heydt, Ted Hor-
lenko, another sophomore, will carry
the Maize and Blue in the backstroke.
Bruce Allen will swim a leg on both
relay teams, the same chore he han-

died so well against Penn. The div-
ing will be given to Mack Hayes.
a newcomer on the team.kH
The Wolverines will throw Bob
West into the battle to press Shar-
emet in the 50 and Will Garvey in
the 100. Tom Williams faces Patten
and the Pitt entry in the 220 and is
scheduled to swim a leg on the 400
yard relay.
Matt is keeping the team overnight
in the Smoky City, leaving for New
York early Friday morning, where
the Wolverines face the New York
A.C. Saturday night.
