The University of Illinois com-
pleted the circle of its hockey life
Friday with the announcement that
it had cancelled\ all of its remaining
games for this season because two of
its eight puckmen were injured and
could not play.
.This hockey life started way back
in peaceful 1937 when the Illini
put out their first hockey team.
This first edition wasn't expected
to do much in the way of winning
hockey games and it didn't. And
when they didn't become any more
powerful the next year, Michigan
and Minnesota began to consider
the games with Illinois as breath-
But in the fall of 1939 Illinois en-
gaged Vic Heyliger, who starred on
the ice for the Wolverines from 1935
to 1939, as its nev puck mentor. Im-
mediately the Illini's prospects took
on a brighter hue. They took a game
from Michigan for their first Big Ten
victory and their freshman team was
considered a powerhouse.
And it must be remembered that
all during Illinois' metamorphosis
Minnesota had been beating Michi-
gan and annexing the Conference
crown. The Gophers were consid-
ered among the royalty of collegiate
hockey, and saw no reason to
change their status.
But in 1940 the Illini began to

Star Sophomore Center
CHICAGO, Jan. 9. -(p)- George
(Sparky) Felt, 6-foot 4 inch sopho-
more center on Northwestern's bas-
ketball team, was ruled scholastically
ineligible today, dealing the Wildcats'
hopes in the Western Conference
race a serious blow. Northwestern
was matched with Wisconsin in the
league opener tonight in the Chicago
show their power. They swept their,
four games with Micnigan aid hu-
bled the Gophers by defeating them
twice and tying them once in four
games. They took the Big Ten title
and played other outstanding college
teams to a standstill. And fans won-
dered about their sudden rise.
It seems that high school hockey
stars from all over the country sud-
denly had a yearning to go to col-
lege at the University of Illinois.
Boys came from Maine and Massa-
chusetts and what was worse, play-
ers from the state of Minnesota,
especially from around Minneapo-
lis. Born and bred to play for the
Gophers, they suddenly changed
their minds and decided that they
liked the scenery around Cham-
paign a lot better.
This cut the Gophers to the quick.
All this good local talent leaving for
foreign parts. They must have felt
like parents losing their children. In
the 1941-42 season, Illinois was miss-
ing from the Minnesota hockey
Illinois retained its Big Ten title,
however, by taking their four Con-
ferencae games from Michigan while
the Wolverines managed to capture
one contest from Minnesota, thus
eliminating the Gophers. The Illini
were rated tops in collegiate circles
and even held the professional Chi-
cago Blackhawks to a close score.
This year the Gophers apparently
had a change of heart, for they have
four games scheduled with Illinois.
Now the Illini have cancelled these
games along with all their others.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Teams Fail to Break
r Deadlockin Overtime
By WALT KLEE
From the word "go" till the final
whistle, eight hundred howling, fren-
zied hockey fans watched Port Dover
and Michigan battle for seventy min-
utes in as thrilling a puck contest as
has been seen in these parts for many
years. At the end of the overtime peri-
od, the score remained, Wolverines 3,
Port Dover 3.
After one and a half periods of play
in which the opposing wings and cen-
ters held the limelight, the game
settled down to a contest between the
opposing goalies Hank Loud ,of the
Wolverines and Ivan Reid of Port
Loud Plays Well
The Canadian net-minder held the
edge in the battle by making spectac-
ular saves, after Kemp and Opland
had brought the puck down deep into
Port Dover ice, thirteen times in the
ten minute overtime. Loud also played
a brilliant game in the nets, making
a total of thirty-seven stops, to thir-
ty-nine from the boy from across the
The entire first line played spark-
ling hockey throughout the game,
sparked by Bob Kemp, who perhaps
played his last game on home ice for
the Wolverines. Herb Hause, Cyril
"Frenchy" DesRossiers, George Mum-
mery, and Irvin Nobes divided the
offensive honors for Port Dover.
IWolverines Take Lead
Only nine minutes of playing time
had elapsed before the Wolverines got
off to an early lead, on a goal by Ed
Reichert. After the Canadians had
tied it up, defenseman Bob Derleth
beat goalie Reid on a pass from Op-
land, who got two assists during last
The second period saw the visitors
get two goals to one for the home
team to knot the score. Bob Kemp
scored for the Wolverines on a pass
from Reichert, for the first score of
the period. At this point the game
looked like it might be a walk-away
and become the first victory of the
year for Eddie Lowrey's charges. But
the Canadians came back to score
twice before the period ended.
During the last four minutes of the
third period the Canadians put three
defensemen on the ice to make up
for the loss of two men who were in
the penalty box. However, Reid and
his defensemen were up to the task,
playing a sensational brand of de-
fensive hockey to stave off a Wol-
verine score. Bob Kemp scored twice,
only to have two goals called back;
once because Reichert was interfering
with the goalie and once because he
crossed the line ahead of Opland's
CHICAGO, Jan. 9. -(A)- Johnny
Kotz, haltered most of the game by
the gluey guarding of Bud Hasse,
pushed in one of his famous one-
handed shots in the final 30 seconds
of play tonight to give Wisconsin a
67-65 victory over Northwestern be-
sore 8,000 in ChicagokStadium.
The score was knotted 11 times
during the furious pace and the mar-
gin of leadership was never more
than four points, that advantage be-
ing hit three times in the last half.
Scoring honors, however, were
split between Wisconsin's Ray Pat-
terson and Northwestern's little Bob-
by Jake-both with 19 points.
The combined score of 132 points
smashed the Big Ten record of 119
set last year during the Northwest-
Maroons Lose Auother
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 9.-WP)-
Purdue's Boilermakers opened their
Big Ten basketball season tonight by
coasting to an easy 59 to 22 victory
over Chicago's hapless Maroons.
The Wolverine cagers wind up
their current trip by playing
Northwestern tomorrow night at
to shoot .rom a distance. The Illini
gathered in practically all rebounds
and controlled the ball through most
of the half.
Doyle flipped in a one-handed shot
early in the period after Art Mathie-
sen had dropped in a field goal and a
free throw. Illinois stretched the lead
to 8 to 2, before Dave Strack sank a
long one, then piled up its total to 18
to 4 before Strack again counted. At
this point the Illini proceeded to run
wild, tossing in 14 points while hold-
ing the Maize and Blue scoreless in
the last 7 minutes.
But Michigan came out a different
ball club in the second half. After
Phillip had connected on a sleeper to
stretch the Illinois lead to 34-6, the
Wolverines began to serve notice that
this would be no complete rout. They
took more than their share of the re-
bounds and couldn't miss at any
angle, while Illinois play was listless
With Mandler and Doyle scoring
from all over the floor, the Wolverines
cut the lead to 18 to 13 within seven
minutes. Doyle scored three times,
Mandler twice, and Bob Wiese hooked
one basket in that spurt.
The two teams then proceeded to
exchange, with Michigan gradually
clipping the lead. Midway through
the period Strack converted and Mul-
laney dropped one in from the side
to cut the margin to 40 to 29. This was
closest Michigan approached.
Andy Phillip scored his eighth and
ninth field goals and Menke.hit a free
throw to give Illinois a 47 to 29, and
Coach Doug Mills rushed in the re-
serves. Mandler and Doyle hit baskets
and Anderson added a free throw be-
fore the final whistle.
Doyle's basket shooting was the
highlight of the Michigan offense. A
particularly choice one-handed shot
from the side couldn't miss. Mandler
was well blanketed by Mathiesen in
the first half, but broke away for his
four field goals in the second period.
It was the second time in five meet-
ings that Mathiesen has outscored
- -spent most of four periods
last night near the Port Dover goal
and was largely instrumental in
gaining that 3-3 tie by his fight
and spirit. He shared scoring hon-
ors with Ed Reichert and big Bob
Derleth. The Varsity wingman also
spent four minutes in the penalty
box for tripping and high-sticking.
For the right combination of clothes,
take the advice of those who know
them best . . . the campus crowd. A
new sweater and skirt is just the
thing to add zest and zin to a win-
ter-weary wardrobe. Sweaters in
luscious pastels; skirts in bright,
springy plaids or plain col.ors .
